One call was during lunch time informing me that he had cooked something at home and asked whether I had time to drop by the house for lunch. Given the traffic situation, it was an impossible mission to achieve.
Another was late at night when I was still in the office, asking me to drop by his workplace to pick up something. My dad, these days, works as a night shift security guard to pass his free time (he got so bored sitting in the house) and earn some cash (a far cry from those days when he was young and was driving a 10 tires truck)

Someone calls and from the other end is not happy with my actions or decisions and just when I am trying to explain on why I took the said actions or decisions, they slam down the phone. Very unprofessional!
Perhaps it is the stress at work or misunderstanding with some people at home, I don’t know and I don’t care for the time being.
I am someone that does not follow “Malaysian” time – if the time to meet is at 9 pm, I will be there at 8 pm and somehow I expected others to follow the same and when that does not happen, I get upset, no, I get angry, I get annoyed.… [Click to read the rest] “Personal thoughts”
Beginning of this year, I talked about New Year Resolutions and unlike previous years, this time around I really tried to follow on the resolutions. Probably because I have blogged about it and I want to something to show for the next New Year Resolution post (it’s a good motivation, isn’t it?)… [Click to read the rest] “Half Yearly Review”
