I'm polluting the environment

...with the nasty white smoke coming out of the exhaust of my banana boat. I don't know what else to mechanic said I have to drive it for two weeks before he can complete the repairs from the timing belt snapping the other day.

Arghhhhhh....! Ok I already called Mechanic and told him I can't drive this thing like this. If someone were to drive in front of me with fog coming out of the exhaust, I would curse the driver and maybe scratch the car if I find it...hehe. (but don't scratch mine la..please..that baby has gone through enough!) Mechanic told me to send the car in tomorrow.

To the pedestrians, motorists and any cars behind me who had to endure the smoke, please accept my deepest apology. I promise you that I will get it fixed as soon as possible.

Btw, my friend's husband who was diagnosed with leukemia mid-last month passed away two nights ago from lung infection. He was a handsome young lad who had the future in front of him. May Allah bless his soul, Al-Fatihah. Sorry for the late info, the news was rather depressing for me, I had to digest it for a couple of days.

French Spiderman

French Spiderman, originally uploaded by nadi0.

being at the right place at the right time is definitely awesome! i don't usually bring my camera around, but i had it with me in the office today for an office farewell party (booohoo liza dah takde...), and the French Spiderman (Alain Robert) was right across from my window, trying to climb up the opposite tower.

my hands shook as i was snapping the pics, i was so scared that he would fall off!

here's the link to the picture i took that was published by Reuters. check it out! hihihi!!

exciting day for me....a depressing morning turned out to be a good day overall., eh?

Sunrise @ The Klang Gate Dam

Sunrise @ The Klang Gate Dam, originally uploaded by nadi0.

i couldn't believe that i actually woke up at 5AM to hike up a hill so i can a picture of this. the hike up was like hell! thank god for Kichi and gang who helped me up. hahahaa...i really need to exercise muscles are so weak.

I stopped at a landing that was good enough for me to see the sun rise. After resting (for about an hour hahaha) i joined the guys who were further up experimenting with off-camera lighting. i'm glad i hiked up to join them..the experiment turned out to be great!

the hike back down was hell as well, but after it was over, i realized i had a really good time. the view was beautiful from up there on east when the sun was rising. There was a view of the KL skyline as well, but it was too foggy (or hazy?) to get a clean sharp image.

Thanks to Kichi who organized the trip. :-)

oh...happy birthday to was yesterday. My birthday wishes from last year applies...i'm too lazy to make a list this year. haha. i can't even remember what they were...maybe something about being healthy and alive...i guess.

we deserve to be sad.

beneath the smiling facade, people usually carry different things inside them. the sadness of seeing someone who used to be so close to you slide away, and your forcing yourself to feel the same way. the loss of the moments you used to share with each other, now only remains something only you yearn to share.

then you remember. for every person who makes you feel that way, there are probably 10 others around you who are more than willing to make your day.

but still, you think. it's not the same.

Linda Onn, her dress and the Academy Awards

wow, i can't believe an issue like this earned a spot on the Nation section of The Star! macam-macam....

DJ Linda Onn defends decision not to wear outfit to gala event

PETALING JAYA: Upon Linda Onn’s return from Los Angeles, the ERA fm deejay defended her decision not to wear the outfit designed by local designer Radzuan Radziwill for the 79th Academy Awards red carpet event which she had been earlier slated to co-host.

“It’s my body and it’s my say as to what I wear. It is a small issue over a dress,” said Linda during a phone interview yesterday.

I still don't understand why they made such a huge deal out of it.

money money money....

When I first started working, I did a test that concluded that I am driven by money. I'm at the tribunal court waiting for the hearing for my LAD claim. At 8.00 AM. Which means that I had to wake up at 6.45 AM. To fight for my entitlement, which came up to quite a significant amount given the 18-month delay.

Would I have woken up this early if it was over a RM100 claim? Probably not.

I guess, after all I have been through, i am still driven by money...


Money can buy you things that make you happy! Temporarily, if not permanently.
