(The “usual” provocations from the queue jumpers at the toll plaza – the traffic moves faster if everyone queues up and wait for their turn. Imagine what happens if one idiot decides to drive between the proper queues and tries to cut in.

Trip to Brunei – Part 2

Been having pork dishes for the last 2 days…

(Spicy chicken curry with a different)

Oh Fuck! Aftermath

Got a call from my cousin on Friday night

(At about RM23 per pint, the German beer that we had last week was one of the smoothest – we have found our watering hole for premium beers)

Cousin: Hello bro, I am stuck in traffic jam and I am still near my office.… [Click to read the rest] “Oh Fuck! Aftermath”

It is has been a long weekend for me. We managed to get some outstanding things done during the holidays but it comes at a price – body aching and foot pain. It gets worse once I reached the office, only to find urgent things to be done in the next 2 days and a meeting scheduled at night in KL.

Certainly, this is not the way to start the week.
