I Wish It Was Saturday

It started raining in KL early this morning, and I was still in bed. I woke up because Sushi my Shih Tzu started walking around my room. When he does that it usually means that he wants to go relieve himself, or he’s hungry. I woke up to see his tail down between his legs. Then there was a bright flash, and the sound of thunder came through my windows. Oh, it’s raining. He was scared because of the thunder.

I comforted him, and started to go back to sleep. The temperature was perfect for sleeping, and a cool breeze was coming through my window. I snuggled deeper into my warm blankets when I suddenly remembered I had laundry drying outside.

I quickly rushed outside and grabbed my laundry into my hall. Sushi followed closely at my heels because he didn’t want to be left alone.

After that I washed my feet and went back to bed. Before I could fall asleep again, the rain got heavier. Sushi became more scared with each flash of lightning. I made a little cave for him using some cushions and he went under to hide himself. But after a while he wriggled out and kept walking around my room.

In the end I had to sleep at the side of my bed and hang my arm over the side to keep comforting him.

When it came time to get ready for work, I thought of every single reason not to go to work. I just didn’t want to get up. In the end, after pressing the snooze button for a few times I reluctantly got up. I couldn’t afford to lose any more time at work. Too many projects to finish.

I wish it was Saturday today. I would have slept all the way until noon.

And it warms my heart that Sushi my Scaredy-Cat Shih Tzu needs me and looks for me when he’s afraid.

Wedding Invitations Are Out

Our wedding invitations are ready, and some have already been distributed to our friends, family and colleagues. If you have not received your wedding invitation yet, don’t worry. I won’t forget anyone. It’s probably in the process of being passed to you. If you didn’t receive an invitation by the end of May, hmm… this is a bit ackward. I can only apologize because I only have limited seats to play around with, so I can’t invite everyone.

If you have found this website through the wedding invitation, welcome to my blog! Extra points to you for actually trying to access my domain. I have my reasons for keeping this blog semi-secret, so I generally don’t announce that I have a blog.

Anyway I hope you will stay around, subscribe to my feed, and contribute your comments.

This Seems Like a Scam

Yesterday I got a letter from Reader’s Digest, notifying me that I will be getting a contest form with chance to win big money soon. Here’s some excerps from the letter:

“When people receive a Contest invitation from Reader’s Digest, they often decide to throw it away…. Some people, like Mr Tan of Selangor, let their Contest invitation sit around until time runs out… a mistake that cost him an opportunity to win as much as RM200,000. (details changed to preserve his anonymity) [snicker… yeah right!]

While many of your neighbours will look in their letterboxes in vain, you have already been fortunate enough to clear two of the three stages that there are to becoming a winner in our RM700,000 Mega Contest. As an Astro customer, you’ll be having an opportunity to win loads [loads?] of big [I’d like my money in regular sizes please. Big money can’t fit in my wallet], easy money [alarm bells going off].”

Okay, I just want to check with all of you, especially those of you who are Astro (Malaysian satellite TV provider) subscribers:

1) I bet you received the SAME letter right?

2) Do you intend to join?

3) Anyone joined a Reader’s Digest contest before? What did you have to buy in order to qualify?
