Do pets go to heaven?

Gosh, is there anything Malaysia cannot do? Indeed livin' up to its "Boleh-land" claims, I officially wave the white flag, because indeed what is impossible is simply possible here, there is no such thing as "no, we can't do it", but ladies and gentlemen, if you ask me, nothing is impossible here.

When our dear government announced recently of the RM0.10 drop in fuel price, read here, it was completely shocking, 5 years ago, what goes up in Malaysia, never comes down, and this is indeed a surprise, while, if you read here, you will realize that you can't please them all, with its self-explanatory title, shouldn't-it-be-40sen-or-more?. *raises eyebrow* Well, we're indeed "boleh" for one, and can be also very demanding, I'd reckon. Oh and of course, over-promising is relatively common here.

Ah, let me see, today's headline screams out, "Balik Kampung" time for Malaysians who're celebrating Hari Raya- wonderful time to just gather as a family, and well, *rolls eyes* EAT, if I didn't know any better, I didn't think we really have anything much in common, except time to eat... I'm joking, but we do have our fair shares of political aspirations, and how the country should be and "freedom of speech", or how bloggers share the same sentiments on us being "goblok(s)", oh and endless competition of who-knows-the-best-food-around?

Okay, let's get back to main track. Well, as we all know (who am I kidding?), the World Animal Day 2008, falls on the month of October. And my oh my, I didn't think anyone would naive enough to think that animals have souls, or go to heaven, after watching "All Dogs Go to Heaven"? Yes, I think there are, unfortunately.

Here is a list of events to be held in conjunction with the World Animal Day. Look at Oct 3 and Oct 4. "A special mass and animal blessing in church". Not that I have anything against animals at church, I don't care if they want to bless animals, like dogs, who are man's best friend, but the idea just seemed to be silly. I was a little curious, and I thought I'd google it.

It just crossed my mind that this could be "the" solution, in a creative way, to those who claim that they don't have time to attend service because they had to attend to their pets? I don't know. It seemed like how a kid would go saying, "My dog ate my homework", and the teacher goes, "Okay, let's bring your dog to school, so that I can give him a crash course, on what to eat and what not to?"

Why do I even indulge in these thoughts? I'd like to think I have better things to think about. *shrugs* But seriously, this could be the ideal country for animal lovers around the world, MM2H could use this as a selling point. "Because we care for you and your pets". How's that for a tagline?

i have a dream, a song to sing...

I did it in 2004.
I was so excited until the day I stood at the edge of the board.
It was at that point I knew that there's no turning back.
Finally it was my turn..
I was completely numb as I went nearer to the edge.
In the midst of mixed emotions, I was asked to turn to the cheering crowd below me, waving back to them.

Then I peeked down a lil, it was a do-or-die moment.
All I hear is instructions, 3..2...1.. and Bungy!
I counted on the "rope" that was strapped on my feet and took a deep breath and jumped! Less than 7 seconds, I was already bouncing, and I was trying to take it all in..

the air, the green, the sounds from the rapid river,
and the blood flow towards my head..

And I'm feeling it all over again.
Today, as a "graduate", my faith is tested once again.
It is harder now, then it was back then..

To say, I've been real blessed to meet with great people and great opportunities.Given it much thought, I've decided to take
a leap of faith

To the great ocean, where I can't see the bottom of it...
To understand in life, that I have to play in the present as well as planning for the future.. Where it'll lead me, I do not know, but I know I have a direction.

I have a dream, a song to sing.

facing a predicament

Well, this time i cannot be greedy and say, "I'll take both".
And no, I'm not getting any be-my-gf proposals, unfortunately. xD
Work ethics, personal conflicts, credibility as well as knowing what's best for you. Gosh, and I thought the mass spamming of resume is tougher.

I remembered this story told by a monk of two sisters coming to see him to ask for his advice.One is married and having marital problems, and one is single and can't find a suitor.

The best solution would be switching, since one desperately wants one and the other can't wait to get rid of him.

But of course, the monk tells them, "You can't just get rid of your sufferings, if you're married, you have married-suffering, and if you're single, you have single-suffering"

So, there's no such thing as having it all, and having nothing at all. You will have problems, either way. And of course, grass is ALWAYS greener on the other side.

So, I'm telling myself right now, that I should be thankful, and of course, better make a decision by Monday. God, shed some light!

we are the hero of our own story

we start reading, hearing, and dreaming fairytales since little. well, in the end, today, most of us don't think we deserve, or don't think we have what it takes to live our own "fairytale". most of us want to, but you know when you have thoughts like, "oh, that'll never happen", or "that's not even real".

question is, when are we going to start living it?

today, i just want to voice this out. "we are the hero of our own story". we must be able to tell ourselves, "i'm proud of you", "i'm enough".

Enhance what you're good at, improve your weaknesses. like a wise lecturer told our class, "Know Thyself". often enough, "wisdom are always whispered to you". I've learned my lesson, free advice are not appreciated until you pay for it.

next time you want one, i'm charging. no joke.

we keep waiting on the world to change..

today i had roti canai (indian food, it's all about the carbs! lol) at 7:30 a.m. Sadly alone, but it felt good, okay I'm not going to lead you into a "relo" topic, simply because it has nothing got to do with that, I swear! *rofl*

It felt like I went through a "final rite" in Uptown
It's a Sunday morning, so no double parkers and noisy honkers, that felt good for once.

I then walked back "home", and passed the park, where I glanced through all the houses that I used to pass by, the badminton court, the tennis court, the basketball court.

Lil kids playing badminton, the rain or shine joggers, with occasional weird sightings like 3 dogs humping on each other (threesome kinda way), which I'm totally not lying because Yna saw it with me! or some dog which looks more like a bear/gorilla (seriously i have no idea!)

I didn't know dogs can be queer too, that same feeling, like how I discovered when I was 9 that chickens pee, or bitches (female dogs) have period too!

Okay, moving on... I guess some neighbours would be happy, finally that girl who sound like a broken record when she's on the guitar or those weird "karaoke" sessions is leaving! That includes, my next door housemate, and downstairs' too. =p

I was just having my final guitar session, shucks. Sorry! ;)

Today I'm heading home, gosh, truth to be told, I don't know where to start packing (read: throwing) *touches heart* I'm a sentimental (rubbish) person, sometimes I just wonder if i can live in "simplicity"? haha.

Okay, 1st mission is to throw and finish reading the books that I haven't finished or started before i go into any bookstore and get tempted to rush to the cashier... sigh... i think that might just be my New Year's reso.

i'm checking out, and gotta bid farewell to my dear-to-heart Uptown, but will continue living my own Uptown Life as I move on to greater things in life, forever and will always be the UptownLife.

no tears please. heh.
