Hatyai marketplace ... That's right, I'm off for a short trip to southern thailand last week. I'm staying at this hotel called Pink Lady, and the whole place is all about entertainment. There's show, mermaid in aquarium, plenty of thai food, lot of massage place. Plenty of things to keep me occupy ...

It's time to blog again. Shanghai ... that's Shanghai on your right. If you look at it, it remind me of Simcity. That photo is not taken by me but taken by my friend, Jeremy. Somehow that guy is quite good in taking some good shot. My only shot is Mr Don the Maltese. In fact when I was looking at my photo album, it's all about Mr Don and some of vacation photos. Maybe I should go somewhere this Chinese New Year. Your brain will be dead if you are only in this country. There's things to see here but limited.
Even going out of this country involved making some decision like whether i want to go to a city vacation, beach vacation, island vacation or maybe countryside. City will be place like Bangkok, Macau, Hong Kong or even China, but China, I might be going mid of this year for business. So I think I might skip city. Island vacation can be real boring especially when there's nothing much to do there except sleeping (if you know what I mean). Maybe I will skip island as well. Countryside? Nar, living in Penang is like living in a countryside. The more I think of it, the more I dislike it. Penang is not that bad actually but places like Kedah, Kulim, etc is really not my cup of tea.
In fact, my friend, James wanted to ask me to go Kenyir for fishing, I even pass that. Talking about fishing, the last time I almost ended up eating frog. Luckily I manage to catch one catfish during the last minute. We were using frog as bait, in fact that's the first time I fish using frog. You clip the frog mouth and use the hook to pook the frog ass. Taufik (or Ah Meng) ... whatever his name is ... will even cut off the poor frog leg ... reason ... so that the fish can swallow the bait easier. Somehow the fish didn't eat that (fish might be thinking ... what the heck is this cripple frog doing here .... fishy).

It's already 13 days after new year, and after reading Desmond's blog, I think I should write something. What Desmond did was he wrote about 2006 and did a self reflection for that year. What about me? 2006 was okay for me, actually to most people, I think it's the year of their lifetimes. The problem with me is there's always something missing, maybe I never have enough, or maybe it's greedy, but I assure you it's not. 2007 should be even more exciting, it should be a leap.
I remember once upon a time when some rich people tell me that if you make your first 100k (that was like more than 10 years ago), the next 100k is going to be easy. The rich always pampered themself with expensive stuff such as expensive car, expensive house, expensive gadget, etc. The list is never ending, there's always so much to buy. As for me, I bought a lot of rubbish when I was young and poor. I remember starting work with RM700 and I have so much money to use (those were the day), then at one point in life, I earn more than the average tom dick and harry, and yet I have negative saving and not enough to use. Luckily ever since I meet SL, I become frugal and now somehow I have no desire to buy anything at all. In a way, I think it's good, but in a way, it's bad too. At times, I was thinking what the hell is wrong with me, am I suppose to leave everything for the children like my parent or her parent generation? What happen if the children are really useless bum?
Well, talking about that, I think I better stop here and start visiting my friends with kids. Mani already have 3 kids, and I think he will only be free for anything when his kids grow up. That's the lifecycle. I wonder what will happen if I tell SL that we don't want to have any kids at all, maybe we can adopt .... hahahahah.
