So it is confirmed. Hasty and unplanned as it was, I will be heading to China in just over two weeks. Got my ticket from the agent and also made the visit to the Chinese consulate in Toorak to apply for a visa to enter the country.

So what were the chances of me living in a host city of a major international sporting event and at the same time jetting off to some Ting Tong land in the north? The Commonwealth games commence in just 16 days and i will miss all of it. Thank goodness though that i am departing a day after the opening ceremony.

My itinerary, well essentially Kuala Lumpur for a day then the next day to Beijing. Will stay at Beijing for a few days then to Tianjin and Chengde. Ironically aside from all the fabulous ancient sites in China, my highlight would be the return trip to Malaysia where i could meet those friends i thought i would not see for at least another 5 years. Oh! and shopping.

Chicken Funghi

Sigh. I am just talented. Had this dish in a restaurant and whipped up the same dish with nothing but my memory of what it looked like and tasted. Voila!

I pray that you'll guide me as i am about to make an important decision.

I recently ordered and commenced taking this product called Mannatech Ambrotose. I am not exactly sure how it works but it enables our cells in our bodies to communicate better through the supplement of the 8 essential sugars our body needs. Once our cells communicate between each other efficiently, it enables the cells to do a better job in everything. I am not going to attempt explaining exactly how it works or what it does exactly because i have forgotten what the person said and i do not wish to give ill information.

Anyhow, i have heard firsthand account on how this product has actually assisted this lady to battle cancer and suppress it. So she got better right, and when she got better she became CHEAPSKATE and ceased taking it. So she went downhill again. However, whenever she took it she got better. The thing i do not grasp is why the yo-yo behavior. It is CANCER man!! So during one of her cycles of taking and not taking, she got bad... because she did not take it... in which she finally succumbed to the disease.

Other testimonies i know firsthand is this person who battled tiredness. A setback that was abruptly dissolved by this product.

Haha and for me?? My face is just positively glowing! I somehow look healthier. Okay perhaps i have been subjected to the placebo effect but i know i have felt the difference.

One puny jar of this exalted powder will do you a damage of $100 Australian dollars. $Ka Ching$

Indifference could possibly be the most fatal of our emotional spectrum. The inability to summon any emotions or empathy, the inability to respond to any entreaty of assistance or compassion.

Because with hate, it still is nevertheless a form of passion. The subject in matter mattered sufficiently to incite hatred in the heart.

We all know the stereotypical premise of all martial art movies. Ie. To avenge a loved one's death, to never sleep untill the perpetrator rots in hell etc. That is hatred, and hatred usually comes with revengeful overtones. We could say the avenger is passionate towards the murderer. Passion is still passion regardless if it was malicious or benevolent.

But indifference, one shall not even bother.

Obviously love is not a subject to be covered here.

Thank You Sigur Ros for your music. I have dwelt in your amorphous dreamlike melody that has helped lifted me during this time.

I have always suspected that the remedy to solicit a person's genuine empathy and understanding to your irresponsible actions were to make void all excuses.

However, when placed in the spot, i never did muster my reasoning. I have always just blurted out all excuses and lies head on to justify my actions. Lately though, i have challenged myself otherwise. In fact, i have put my theory to the test. Just a couple of weeks ago i was to attend a girlfriend's 25th birthday at this bar.

I was buggered. In addition i was enjoying my time with another friend and was too lazy to move. Hence i did not call my friend to advice of my absenteeism.

So the following day i endured the anticipated "Inquisition". I decided then and there to come clean. I said sorry and that it was my fault. I did not attach an excuse to the sorry neither did i offer to alleviate my guilt. Usually i would have thrown in a "Oh i finished work late" or the age old "Sorry i'm feeling a lil tired".

I elected to make it short, first apologizing and then the admittance of my mistake and guilt.

The Inquisition ended then and there.

Mariska's return
