There is a first for everything


Flying business class, a first for me, after so many business trips throughout the years.

Somehow, this feels more like being on a business trip, heh. =P

personal space

plenty of leg room for my height

The seats are like personal cubicles, with plenty of leg room for me since I am not a tall person.

seat modes

The important thing about the space is that it allows the seat to go into "bed mode", which is a lot nicer compared to trying to sleep sitting. Of course the seat can be in any other form of inclination in between upright and flat.

arse numbing flight distance

For a 13 hours flight, bed mode is very much appreciated. That said, I still didn't get to sleep, the noise (even with ear plugs), the vibration, did not help.

Oh, the three course meals are nice too.

So yea, just wanted to record this down, my first ever experience flying business class. =)

What a week...


Monday, came home early as wifey said Hsiang threw up a few times and doctor suspected food poisoning or appendicitis. Figured she could use the help handling Young while she took care of Hsiang.

Then Hsiang got worse and we decided to see a specialist. The first hospital we went to, wasted two and a half hours before telling us there was no room to admit Hsiang, and they would do the blood test only if Hsiang was admitted.

Thanks for nothing.

So we headed to a second hospital, emergency ward since by then it's already pretty late. Admitted for an operation to remove the appendix on Tuesday morning, which went well, thank goodness.

Took a day off on Tuesday and worked from home on Wednesday for all the chauffeuring, house chores and taking care of Young, who was on his best behaviour and took all these like a champion. So proud of him.

Back to office on Thursday after the few days of rushing around in a worried state, thinking that things would finally settle down to normal, with Hsiang recovering at home while I go back to my normal routine.

A casual comment at the end of the meeting before lunch triggered a chain of event that ended up in my frantic scrambling to get myself ready to go on a business trip next week.

What we said carries so little weight, while what our oversea counterpart said carries so much. What a sad situation we are in...

Anyway, the decision was made in record time instead of the usual drawn out back and forth justification and counter justification, and the company travel agent proved their efficiency getting my travel booked on Friday morning and ticket issued in the afternoon.

I spent Friday night and Saturday morning completing all the necessary trainings in order to apply for all the accesses I will need while over there.

To be honest my head is still in a buzz and all these have not really sunk in. I still have much to prepare for the trip and I don't have much time.

What a week...

好长的一天…


原本是有打算今晚写篇文章的。

但不是这篇。这篇是因为突发事件才写的。

大瓜早上肚痛呕吐,送去诊疗所的途中又呕了一次,回程中再呕了一次。

医生说可能是食物中毒,也可能是盲肠炎。

我在工厂里没有讯号,是午餐时间出了工厂我才得知。

午餐后我就回家了,想必老婆仔需要人帮忙载送、买外卖、和看顾小瓜。

我在家里工作时大瓜又吐了两次。

载小瓜放学时老婆仔决定带大瓜去看专科医生。

所以我放了他们在医院然后和小瓜回家,安顿小瓜的晚餐。

小瓜很乖很自立,吃饱后自己做功课,我问他需不需要帮忙他说不必。我看了看他做好的功课,都没错,我就去洗盘碗和忙我自己的。

小瓜做完功课后就很自动自发的去冲凉,自己吹干头发,自己在床上看了下书,然后就关灯睡觉。

我进去房里和他抱抱吻晚安,他说他可能会睡不着,因为担心我出去载妈妈和哥哥时只有他一个人在家,他怕会有坏人。

我安慰他说不要担心,家里很安全,而且医院不远,我很快就会回来的。

他哦了一声,很快就睡着了。

大瓜在医院里又呕吐,而且开始发烧。专科医生说要验血才能确定是不是盲肠炎。

可是,医院没有病房,而他妈的要住院他们才验血,说什么去别的医院可能又要在验血多一次。

总之,浪费了两个半小时后结果是要去另一间医院重新开始整个过程,而且门诊时间已过,要去急诊。

勾叉零蛋三角形!

确定第二间医院有病房后我放了他们再次回到家里等。悄悄看了看沉睡的小瓜,一切安好。

然后我开始写这篇文章。

大约一小时后老婆仔致电说确定是盲肠炎,要留院观察和准备明天早上的切除手术。

她说会陪大瓜过夜,叫我等她安排妥当后再来电通知我去接她回家冲凉和带过夜需要的东西过去。

我等她的电话期间开始帮她准备过夜需要的东西。她再次来电时我已准备得七七八八。

来回医院,老婆仔说大瓜告诉她可以不必倍他过夜,但最好是可以。孩子真的长大了…

冲过凉再次来回医院,今晚的第四趟。

再回到家后安排明天请假的琐琐碎碎,然后继续写完这篇文章。

好长的一天…

累了,也不多写了,希望明天一切会顺顺利利啦!

有感而发:奥运羽球


二零一六年八月二十日。

好久没有看电视了。有几年了吧?

今年里约奥运会,大马羽球队混双、男双、和男单都进了决赛。

所以我破例看了电视,追这几场球赛。

感谢羽球健将们的努力和拼命,给我们带来精彩刺激的比赛。

三个决赛,三个银牌。遗憾无缘夺金。

最靠近金牌的,应该是男双了。好可惜。

大马混双和男双,你们可以的,下个奥运会里把冠军带回家吧!

李宗伟,感谢你那么多年的拼。你和林丹给了我们好多高水准的漂亮球赛。

我想这应该是你们最后一个奥运会了吧?

我只能说,你们是一个时代的传奇,谢谢你们。

很惋惜宗伟没有夺冠,不然那将是多么完美的谢幕啊…

Tummy-building


Today is the day, the tummy-building day!

To take it up another level, some of us arranged a pre-tummy-building breakfast. We had dim sum to have a head start at tummy-building, hehe.

Well, if you cannot beat them, join them. So feast we shall! =P

Then it's to bowling we went.

I consider the bowling a small victory, in the sense that today's event had that bit of teambuilding element in it instead of purely tummy-building. 

We were split into two teams, competing each other. The alias they used were just... oh well, it's my resolution this month to not react to it, so I shall not.

I am in a team mainly with a pokemon and tough theme, while the other team had a soft theme. My team lost both games, we cleaned many "longkang" in the process. =P

Scored 106 in the first game, about average of my (lack of) skill; then 115 in my second game, which was better than usual for me.

We then proceeded to the buffet lunch.

Which was just so so. The food lover was disappointed, I am indifferent since I know I got cheap taste. As I can't eat much, I perceived buffet as no value for money.

A starter, a main course, a dessert, and an icecream, and I already had too much and went into food coma. -_-

We went for movie after lunch, watched Suicide Squad. Didn't really have any expectation, the movie turned out alright for me. The extra money paid for the motion seat was another no value for money in my case, but at least I have experienced it.

All in all, I love the dim sum and I enjoyed the bowling. Movie was okay and lunch was so so. It's a day without work so all is good. =P

I didn't have dinner since I am still full. A friend gave us some durians though, so maybe I will eat that later in the night as dinner/supper. ^_^

Dominant personality trait


Followed a sharing in Facebook and got to this blog entry: This Abstract Image Test Will Determine Your Dominant Personality Trait.

I have no idea how the system works but here's what I got after going through the test:


Wisdom eh?

I can live with that.



I knew it! =P
