the new 'project' im in

i dont knw wht 2post abt 2day.. got no idea wht 2say.. n honestly, i reli love 2see d ikea's meatball platter photo plastered on my blog, hence im a bit reluctant 2post a new topic.

nway.. currently, ive got my hands tight up on FB. since im still new thr, thr's so many thgs 2do. im uploading my wedding photo on FB @d time im writing dis. n i wish i dont get so many notifications cz it made me eager 2check up on it. i thing im gonna turn off all notifications. @least im not gonna b so obsessed on updating! *sigh!* poor old me.. so so outdated.. i mean, look @my frenster a/c. i cant rmbr d last time i logged in it. i hope dats not gonna happen w my blog though! unless d ofc starts block'g blogspot, im so gonna die! cz i only go online @d ofc. very seldom @home (parents' dat is) cz of d (very) slow connection.

btw, rmbr whn i said dat im alwiz gonna b d top 30 staffs who park @my ofc compound? well, 2day, dat does not happen. go ahead.. take a guess wht number am i 2day? no, not 11 (i wish!). not 31. its 50+ (ok, cant rmbr exactly. bt its 50+). did i hear u ask why? i mean, its a bit obvious isnt it? im late! ihihi! ok, not like late late. bt later than usual.. i think i got out frm d roof @nearly 7.30am. luckily traffic ws ok dis morn'g. im still in d cherish-d-skool-holiday mode. thrfore, nothg can dampen my spirit 2go 2work (bt d heavy rain early dis morng tempted me 2call in sick ~so not me!~).

neway, we hv 2send in our raya leave application soon. d company im workg with is very generous in terms of dat.. we get 30days annual leave per yr. due 2 d fact dat im d exec cum clerk cum ofcboy only staff in my unit, i hardly apply 4 a leave. dats why i got d green light whn i applied a month (19days recorded cz a month is actually inclusive of weekends n public holidays) leave 4my wedding. dis year, d company is giving an extra compassionate holiday on d 4th of raya. im sure s hell most of d staffs will b away 4d whole week. (count me in!) i guess im gonna hv 2 hv a discussion with soulmate.. hopefully he'll also hv a long raya holiday.. (which i doubt). hmm.. i dont hv baju raya dis year.. dunno y i didnt bother. bt if i get a raise, i think im gonna search 4 one. cz its d 1st yr beraya with soulmate. (>.<) yeay...!

the thing i call 'my fetish'

nw.. i used 2think i cld only b fetish in 1thg only. somekind of loyalty or somethg.. like my obsession 2 Man Utd.. bt nope.. who in d right mind actually cld? owh.. btw, i've signed up 4 FB.. so so so outdated me hs finally signed up 4it. i mean, ive got so many notifications on joining. bt i've alwiz provided such a lame answer like 'i alredi hv frenster'. d othr day, a friend; irma hasmie; asked me whether i'll b upload'g our photo @FB n i said, no cz i hv my blog. n then i watched Oprah n she said somethg like 'if FB ws a country, it wld b d 5th largest pplted nation'. n recently i kept on receiving dis weird invitation frm 'Missy Thingummy'; who i dont hv any idea who dat ws; 2join FB. Amy; a fren @ofc; hs also suggested me 2do so, including 3,285 othr ppl! n finally, i hd d nerve of do'g it ystrday with a help of a fren cz i ws busy do'g somethg else. n eventually i found out dat d mysterious 'Missy Thingummy' is my twin Meme! i mean, wht kind of name u chosed?? i thought it ws frm a fren in another continent!

k, back 2 my fetish.. neway, i think ive been 'preaching' abt dis one thg dat i love 2eat so so much 2my colleagues.. i've been somekind of voluntary promoter cum walking advert 2dis particular food, been talk'g abt it on n on. n i even hd my drunken-ness of dis heavenly lushes food on 1of my posting sometime back.. i fell in love with it whn my lovely doting soulmate introduced me 2it during 1of our dates. n right frm dat moment, i cant thnk of othr scrumptious delicacy worth eat'g! (ok, dats a bit too much right?) neway.. here's wht im talkg abt :


d mouth-watering Ikea's Meatball!! (credit 2 Amy)

alrite.. i knw we'r fast'g bt i finally got dis photo frm Amy ystrday. n i jz cant wait 2post on it. every1 shld go n try it. i went 2 hv it last 2 weeks 4lunch with Amy. a week b4 dat, Amy went thr n tried it n txted me on it cz i ws d one who ws rambling abt we shld go n try it. bt d 1st time she went, she didnt even inform me (i thnk she knw d minute she suggestd, im sure s hell'll b run'g 2ikea if i might!). bt @least she cld reli understand my delirium of desire over dat meatball! n she promised we'll go 2gether d nx wk. n dat photo taken ws d one whn Amy n i went 2ikea 4our lunch. n guess wht? Amy went thr 3 weeks in a row! cz last week, she went thr with anothr ofcmate, K. Zeehan n i didnt join them since i ws on leave. n yes, without shadow of a doubt, i'll join them if i ws arnd @dat time!

btw, its highly recommended babes! do try it.. n pls dont get greedy.. whn u'r order'g u might thnk d 10pcs meatball wil not b enough. Bt trust me, if u dont plan 2share, dont think of order'g 15pcs! (if im not mistaken, they also serve 5pcs a plate. k, i didnt bother with dat one cz it wont b enough 4me) u might not believe dat 1pc is very fulfilling! bcz its not like normal meatballs frm othr rstaurants, 1pc of it is very firmly packed i shld say. n d gravy.. gosh d gravy.. delectable! n y do i say i 10pcs plate is enough? cz they also serve it w not-ur-average-size fries. got appetite? try it!

the best thing abt school holiday

When we were a child, still in skool; we reli love skool holidays.. cz we can finally get a break frm get’g scold by d horrible Mrs Narayanan teacher and all d hectic learning process.. I hated skool whn it comes 2hv 2excel in studies. It ws so much pressure! N I reli reli hate (notice d present tense im using?) maths! Bt I loved it especially cz of d darling frenz n all d stuffs we can do aftr skool, d curricular activities, d bump in2 some1 we admire, d lepak time @ amcorp mall d skool canteen n such.. neway, all in all, we (read : i) jz love some time off frm all d studyg (not dat I did study). D skool break ws wht we embrace with open arms, smiling frm ear 2 ear, so so welcomed!

Nw, 10yrs aftr skool; whn d skool break finally arrives, I cant help but 2love it again. Not dat I can hv a break as well, (im sure if I ws a teacher, im d happiest person in d whole world 4d holiday!) bt I love it whn I can get ready 2work, jz a little extra late than usual. I don’t hv 2rush in d morning, I can reli take my own sweet time, do my chores in d morning, take a shower @nearly 6.30am, do d laundry, run d car engine extra long b4 driving off, reach sunway toll without even an ounce of blood raising in temperature (due 2 d normally long queues @d not so Smart Tag). N no matter hw late I got out of d ‘roof’, I’ll still b d top 30 staff who parks @d ofc compound (my ofc hs dis park’g system, we can park @d ofc compound provided dat we r d listed employees who were registered @d nearby (paid) park’g lot, d guard’ll give us dis numbered pass 2b displayed on d dashboard. So, dats why I knw I’m still d top 30).

I realize 1thg tho’, during skool holidays, I think myb up 2 65% of usual traffic is just gone! Seriusly! I don’t knw whr all of them went, bt its jz not thr nemore. I mean, its sunway toll 4god’s sake! Its like d worst toll plaza I cld think of in terms of traffic flow. 4normal workg days, I cld swear im 95% risking a freaking bad dent on my car. N d lady drivers (as if im not!).. gosh!! They jz don’t knw whr they’re heading. They r like everywhr! A minute they signalled left, yet they r turn’g their steering wheels 2d right in a very lady-like manner! N d road bullying men drivers; they r some snob who refuse 2let u switch lane no matter hw bright ur signal lite is blinking, n kept on ramming their engine as if they r driving a lamb (im talking abt Lamborghini), bt in reality they r actually driving a heavily modified kancil! Duhh!!! I mean, why is it dat most road bullies drive small cars? I mean, didn’t they realize dat they r actually vulnerable? I think dats why they turn nasty! They r jz insecure, dats why they wanna look tough a bit!

Ok, whtever. my point is, I love skool holidays; even tho' im no longer a skool student; cz thr’s less morning traffic. Im not sure dat d students drive 2skool bt d traffic reli magically eases during skool holidays. I wish I cld pinpoint d reason 4 dis blissful serenity on d road, (I thought parents sendg their children 2skool causes d traffic, bt I rmbred dat I hardly see skool students while I ws caught in traffic) bt I seriusly don’t knw. Nehw, im gonna cherish another 3days left of dis so short skool holiday (sigh!) n m gonna take my own sweet time n enjoy my hassle-free traffic week..

P/s : dont forget 2check out *i think im gonna do dis promo d whole week (>.<)

the mundane blabber (part 2)

since i cant think of d best title 4today's rambling, im using d same title i've used sometime back. cz thr's no specific topic im goin' 2yack abt 2day.. n nope, its not a continuation of d last post on d same title. i made up my mind dat everytime i cant come up with a title 4my post, im gonna use 'd mundane blabber (part ...)' as my title in d future.. so, bear with me readers.. (as if thr r any..) i've done my job 4d day.. no pending works except for filing (i reli need a clerk!im bad in dis 'arena') so, im gonna talk crap..

neway.. i ws blog hopping. i follow some blog cz its alwiz inspiring 2see hw ppl hs so much 2blog abt. like k.Mimi, soulmate's cousin (n mine technically) who post daily, not once, bt a cple of times a day.. i dont. my brain sumhow defies my ability in providing even an ounce of writing materials worth posting abt.. sumtimes i read her blog n thought 'why didnt i came up with dat?' n most of d times i felt dat she blogs abt d thing dat's so simple cz everythng she wrote is abt her n yet i cldn't think of anythg abt me dat i cld share of (shows hw boring my life is..)

n i also follow anonymously some blogs. not reli follow.. every once in a while, i'll check up on dat blog 2see wht dat fella is gonna write abt n laugh @it. ok, let me tell u sumthg abt it.. dis person ws my college-mate back in uni. most of ppl i knw hv problems with her. she's dis over dramatic girl who wants every1 2pay attention 2her. d sabahan wld describe it as 'mintak puji bah..' i ran in2 her blog while blog hop'g n i alwiz cringe in horror @wht she wrote abt in her blog. ok, not reli abt wht she wrote on d blog, its more of how she wrote it..

hv u ever felt like closing ur ears with ur hands, or turning ur face 2another direction in humiliation, or want 2jz cut d conversation short whn sum1 came up 2u n say somthg in english jz 4show'g off or 2get everybody's attention, only 2learn dat wht they say dont make any sense cz of d grammar mistakes? im alwiz tempted 2correct sum1 when they r using d wrong tenses. not dat im good, bt i believe dat one cn only learn whn they knw d correct way of speaking a sentence. they must've not been listen'g 2their teacher whn d teacher ws teachg them. thr's certain basic rule in english, which b'g basic, literally; means its suppose 2b common knwledge. like whn u use 'to' with a verb, d verb shld b in present tense. like 'to write', 'to read', 'to eat', 'to sleep'. and form'g a present continuous tense, u add '-ing' with d verb, like she's eating, im going, he's sleeping. (owh my god, now i sound like an english teacher.. mind me, i ws an english teacher) pls differentiate which noun 2use, is it plural or singular? 'they sale' not 'they sales'.. no, it's not 'its means..' d correct way is 'it means'.. i use to read d section in nst on 'mind your language'. its very helpful.

i've met so many ppl frm different countries since i work in d company im currently work'g with. of course @times i'll feel intimidated 2converse in english especially whn i knw they come frm european countries. and i also met some who dont even speak good english n dats anothr matter n its ok. cz they'll alwiz let me knw in advance n apologize bcz they'r not good in english. n i'll b comfortable with dat cz @least they'll admit it. n i'll tell them im as much incapable in conversing in english as they do n at times, even worse cz i cldnt find d right vocab 2use. bt i jz cant take it whn sum1 thinks dat she can show-off 2ppl by writing an email or post a blog in english whn all she's writing is a crap with so many grammar mistakes! i mean come on!

ok, i, for once write my blog in english. yes. bt no, im not showing off. im jz comfortable in do'g so. n if ever i thought dat i cant do so, i'll slot in a Malay word. bt honest 2 god, no, its not 4 showing off.. dis college-mate who i accidently bumped in2 is another story. cz i personally knw her, its jz weird read'g wht she wrote. we cld reli differentiate btwn a person who wanna learn using d language n person who's using it 4showing off(n fumbles at it). i reli applaud any1's effort in using english. seriusly.. they deserve a pat on their back 4hv'g d confidence of try'g 2improve themselves. aftrall, u can only b good in a foreign language by practicing. i hv one in my ofc, a guy, we call him 'En Mat tarbus'. he speaks english not for show'g off. he do it 2 learn. he'll drop by at my table 2read d nst n if he didnt knw a word, he'll ask me 4d definition. he laughs at himself 4not making a correct sentence but he'll try ever so convincingly n alwiz asks ppl on hw he shld reli correctly pronounce a word or say a sentence, cz he wants 2learn. nevermind d fact dat he is almost nearing d retirement age. i jz am very impressed with his efforts. n i'll champion every1 who wants 2practice. n whn i prctice, i wont mind it if any1 wld correct my tenses bcz its better 2knw my mistakes then continue making it, right?

i think thr's another person who also cant take it whn sum1 4no reason uses english while its better 4them 2write in malay 2avoid d humiliation; n dat is my twin, Meme. i alwiz thought Meme speaks better english. i didnt knw d tenses until i ws in hi-skool. Meme on d othr hand excel hers since primary skool. i went 2 hi-skool, cry'g d 1st day cz most of d students were using english. n i felt helpless cz Meme wsn't thr 2help me cz we went 2different skools. bt i tried everythg bcz i wanna make sure i'll survive in dat skool. n im thankful cz it made me who i am 2day. not dat im good, im far frm it. bt @least im comfortable enough 2use d language n i knw i wont mortify myself in say'g somthg i shldnt or write an invitation dat is hard 4ppl 2understand cz of some direct translation used (hint* hint*). n if i didnt knw a word, i'll admit it n look up in a dictionary 4dat word. its plain simple as dat. i jz wonder why sum ppl must b so arrogant. dont use d language jz 2look good infront of ppl while u definitely s*ck @it. cz in d end, u'll end up looking foolish n seriusly, u r humiliating urself with all d things u r writing/say'g.

the funny thing i read today..

Wow! i have neva seen anythg so impressive like d frontpage of nst.. since we cant curb d spread of d H1N1 virus, our brilliant govt decided dat d citizen shld b fined RM10k or dat poor H1N1 patient may also face up to 2years in jail 4spreading d virus.. now.. now.. is thr anyone of sound mind wld ever want 2purposely spread d virus 2every ppln?? it will b helpful if for once our govt wld not blame us, d citizen for d outbreak of dis virus. whn d citizen complaints, they said we went panic for no reason. whn it is forecast dat 20%of d ppln will contract H1N1, d citizen pays d price for 'spreading d virus'. i think every level of ppl hv voiced our concern abt d slow process in get'g treatment @hospitals nowadays, and ws it not us who wanted serius measures be taken in handling dis issue? if im not mistaken, d panic-stricken citizen were d ones who asked for preventive actions over and over again. n why r we 2b blamed n fined? seriusly, we appreciate it if 'rakyat didahulukan' b finally materialised..

the creme de la creme

I actually hv sumthg i wantd 2 post.. but its stil in draft. i ws tryg 2upload a video wif d post bt thr were some errors evrytime i tried 2publish it. so, it'll remain in my draft 4a while i guess.

2day im so looking 4wd 2rite on dis matter. othr ppl myb writing abt yasmin, bt not me. im not a fan, i dont like yasmin's movies, i only like d tv ads yasmin did, especially on d chinese boy 'tan hong ming'. othr than dat, no hay nada. instead, im gonna rite abt a very fine jewel, a gem, a very prominent lady, she's wht 'a force 2b reckon with' is all abt.. i've been eyeing 4 a wrong idol all dis while! i've read abt her b4; i think every1 does; bt it ws all like a breeze. she ws more a low profile persona; dats wht most of ppl do'g humanitarian works does; they kept away frm d radar cz they jz am happy do'g their work n not all d publicity dat cld come with it.

im talkg abt Tan Sri Dr Jemilah Mahmood. (i seriusly didnt knw she's alredi a Tan Sri)

ystrday, i read in nst an article abt her. i @times did brag abt hw she's an assuntarian, cz im too! (wait, i shld say i ws an assuntarian rite? bt dats wht happen, once an assuntarian, alwiz an assuntarian! ~im so gonna blog abt my hi-skool yrs @assunta~). whn she ws on tv, i'll tell ne1 nx 2me 'do u knw she's n assuntarian?' n then i'll go kembang setaman jz bcz i went 2d same skool as she did. n whn d company im workg with initiated a fund 4gaza, i suggestd 2 send d more than 100k 2 Mercy. bt dat ws it. no more. bt ystrday's article somehow touched my heart so so much. i didnt realize we had so much in common othr than b'g an assuntarian.

whn i ws do'g a degree in uni, i did international relations. i rmbr 1of my lcturer wantd 2knw abt our ambitions. whn it came 2my turn, i said i wanna walk hand in hand with angelina jolie do'g UNHCR works (u knw wht's ironic? nw im do'g international relations not in UN, bt here in d company im workg with. my twin on d othr hand is workg w UN~undp malaysia~. my twin Meme, who never in her life ever had d dream or not in zillion years ever thought of workg in UN, she *and me included* who laughs at her own ignorance especially abt international relations jargons, is b'g paid in USD by UN. not me, who took up spanish as my third language, n mandarin as my fourth so UN h/o will b interested if ever i applied 4a job thr, whch i never did n both languages is very, very rusty nw dat i think im never go'g 2apply cz b'g fluent in only 2 languages of which one is not even UN's official language wont help. unless if i wanna work @d UN malaysia ofc like my twin does. hmm.. now dats a thought..) aftr readg Dr Jemilah's article i knw, i ws so stupid! i mean, angelina jolie?? im sorry angie, im moving on, ive met some1, she's closer @home, i've jz overlooked her all dis while (wait a min, she's gone 2 new york last night 2start a new job, she's no longer closer @home..) on d othr hand, Dr Jem!!! i love u!

she's so noble! n down to earth.. 1of d reason she stepped down frm Mercy bcz she realized dat d rest of d world is relating Mercy with Dr Jemilah. she touched so many hearts all over the world. but she created Mercy for Malaysia, she didnt want it to be Mercy Malaysia Jemilah. how unselfish of her! cz u knw, some ppl wants 2b attached 2 a plc 4so long, its like synonym alredi, whn u mention a person's name(im not gonna give example, hihi!), we'll link it with such n such organisation. not her. im reli wishing her d best of luck! its not gonna b easy, heading one of UN branch in New York, being a female from Asia, a muslim, a tudung wearing one in fact, its gonna b a great challenge. n with dat challenge comes opportunity as well. cz its time dat she can show d world d muslim way of life, of which humanitarian efforts come close 2our hearts if not directly, we do it in othr way possible. U knw wht, whn we didnt manage 2acheive wht we tried 2pursue, its so much serene 2knw dat some1 else is do'g it n we feel so happy 4them. n Dr Jem, although i envy d life u hv(im sure u'll envy mine as well.. i hv a darling soulmate..!), im not sure im as brave n determined as u are, bt i m so so pleased dat u r do'g dis. u r n incredible woman, n hear dis world; Dr Jem is my idol! not oprah, not angie, not sonia gandhi. (owh my god!nw i realized, ive been a feminist whn it comes 2 choosing n idol!)

(her in-laws refuse 2let my sis+Djoe n yana 2move 2othr plc. yana is their 1st grandchild, she *n my sis!* hs been pampered so much by them! whn i ws not married, i use 2fetch yana every friday aftr work n we went back 2gether 2my parent's hse cz my sis' weekly routine is weekdays with in-laws, weekends with parents. since my sis+djoe r work'g in KL, its unpractical 4them 2drive back 2KJ jz 2fetch yana while i ws nearby. they will jz straight away go back 2my parents hse aftr work n i'll b fetchg their daughter n head back home).

neway, back 2d story i ws tryg 2tell, Papa Djoe told us dat yana has been sick since wednesday, high fever n cough. but she was already ok on Friday n he told us 2go check up on her. so soulmate n i dropped by @Papa Djoe's hse n met yana, she ws do'g ok. we were jz thr 4a short while. yana ws look'g a bit dizzy while watchg tom n jerry, every nw n then she answerd our questions, most of d time i talked with Awan Siti (Awan Siti is my sis' mother in law. funny ain't it? yana calls her grandparents Atuk K n Awan Siti.. hehehehe! some ppl might think she is d grandchild of dat singer who sings @d royal albert hall dat i despise so much!). Awan Siti told me dat yana's school has been closed till Wednesday (today) since half d school students r already get'g sick. yana ws wait'g 4my sis 2fetch her cz they were supposed 2go back 2my parent's hse. I didnt cz i ws scheduled 2hv a bowlg tournament d next day. so aftr dat, soulmate n i went back home.

On Sunday, aftr lunch, soulmate n i wantd 2go buy groceries. My mom called me. She said yana ws admitted 2a nearby hospital on Saturday night. they said somethg abt infections in her lungs n she ws still having slight fever. i ws so shocked n worried sick since ive been read'g abt all d news on d H1N1 patients' cause of death which ws pneumonia. dat ws d 1st thing dat struck my mind @dat time. then my mom said they r run'g tests on her - blood test n othr tests pertaining to it. Bt it ws weekend, they wont be expect'g 2get d result so soon since d lab will only b opened on weekdays. my mom kept on say'g 'benda tu' 2refer 2H1N1, she seems reluctant 2say d word, i guess she ws afraid it might be jinx or somethg. since the hospital dont knw 4sure, yana ws put on d suspected list of H1N1 n mom told me dat d sign @her door ws 'Limited Visitor' n anyone who wantd 2visit will b provided with mask 4precautionary measure. they also gave her tamiflu, n i told my mom tamiflu ws d antivirus 4 H1N1. she started 2get worried, thanx 2me! soulmate ws suggestg 4us 2visit since she ws admitted @a hospital near our plc but my mom hs already told me not 2go since my sis n yana didnt get much rest since she ws admitted cz d nurses kept on coming in d room 2get temperatures, do some tests n such. so i planned 2visit whn she returns home. i textd my sis jz 2check up on thngs, she said not 2visit. they were do'g fine.

On Monday i texted her again, she said yana's ok, no more fever, n d doc said dat she's got infection in d lungs n they r restg d whole day.

yesterday mom called, i ws in a meeting. i returned her call sometime later n she said she n my dad went 2visit them yesterday morning @d hospital. blood test result ws negative H1N1. whn i reached home aftr work, mom called again.. with bad news. my sis ws taking yana 4 a walk @d hospital whn d nurse told her dat she wsnt suppose 2get out of d room cz yana ws positive based on another test (phlegm) they did. wht got me very furious ws dat whn did they think ws d best time 2break d news 2her abt dat result? i mean, one instant u said its negative, whn we were be'g a normal human be'g since nothg ws wrong n we went out 2take a walk cz u didnt tell us anythg, u came up n said it ws actually positive? bt y didnt u warned earlier? hw come there were no more restrictions when my parents went 2visit yana? my mom told me d hospital no longer impose d-wear-mask rule dat morng they went. even whn my mom asked 4d room number, d nurse readily showed them which room n didnt say a word on mask wear'g. of course we assume everythg ws ok especially whn d blood test ws already negative! only later dat day did they say abt anothr result. its not dat i want 2alienate d patients, my worry is they (hospitals n ministry) dont take enough precaution from people spreading dis virus! around 8pm+ my mom called again, n another bad news, my sis caught a fever! i think my mom gets a degree of panic everytime after she talk 2me. bcz i kept on talkg abt d virus n she ws tryg 2b positive, dat it ws jz common fever not d worst case scenario. I on d othr hand ws still talkg abt its bad n all. im sorry.. im just paranoid. i alwiz think 4d worst, but still hopes 4d best. not dat i dont want 2b positive minded n all, i just hv 2b realisitic a bit. cz d truth is im reli worried abt dis pandemic!

i m so furious though.. when will we ever get d most honest report abt d situation? i think d hospitals r b'g too relax abt it. n not 2mention d government. i mean we r definitely entitle 4explanation! we dont need some stupid advise on if we cough/sneeze we were suppose 2actually cover our mouth with tissue. hello?? dat is like logic isnt it?? we need 2knw hw bad it is actually? thr r so many complaints already abt hw d government is handling d situation. read here and here. its pandemic, yet they say not 2worry. they'll keep us updated with the situation. my foot! MY family is affected here! if u r just giving us d figures of deaths and cases reported, dat is not keeping us updated with d situation! keeping us updated is providing enough information as 2wht shld we reli do (othr than wash hands n cover our mouth whn sneezing/coughing), is it reli bad alredi? which plc did they (d patients) went to cz we reli want 2avoid go'g thr! (ok, im be'g insensible, bt whtevr!) not some vague infos like, 'she ws positive, she recently went 2a supermarket.' ok, which supermarket??? can u b a bit more specific? thr r hundreds of supermarket in Klang Valley alone! i dont knw how they deliberated on dis : H1N1 vs economic slowdown. cz it seems they r lean'g more 2wards making sure pple dont get panic n then resulted in not go'g 2work n causing our economy 2b @risk. spread'g of d disease, get'g most of d population catch'g d virus is somewht more tolerable than our economy meltdown. wow! so clever!

now i knw hw 1malaysia is go'g 2work.. in fact we can actually achieve it even b4 d year ends! simply bcz @d rate of infection we r go'g, thr'l b only 1malaysian citizen left cz d rest of us r already H1N1 positive! go 1malaysia!
