Another One Bites The Dust

Han_Solo will be leaving us for KL again, tomorrow morning and will only be back in about 3 weeks time, so this probably means that there’s another 1 less gaming buddy for the moment. Yunos has already entered camplife for a good 1 month now, and probably would stay inside for another 5 months or so until he passes out. Max1983 could probably be considered a gaming buddy, and if he was one, he’d be an erratic one. Much like his favourite gaming character, where he weaves in and out view, his presence in the cafe is just as brief and casual.

But Han_Solo isn’t going just for a holiday. Much like what he made years back, it’s a brave decision to thrust himself into the business opportunity of multi-level-marketing, or mlm for short. Now I know that soooo many people shun MLM professionals, simply because these people who shun don’t have a business background to begin with. Anyway, since I’m not trying to promote any MLM I’ll leave it at there, and applaud han_solo at the same time for taking those brave steps in the journey.

By the way, it irks me that Han manages to catch reruns of anime episodes, within 1 week what I could only amass within… 2months probably? Yes he has quite a lot of personal time that it bemuses me when I still run myself ragged at work, for peanuts. Indeed, commissions haven’t been the way they used to and I’m feeling the pinch already, thus my forays into the world of internet marketing.

I may have indulged myself and familiarised the jargons in the internet marketing world early during my polytechnic days, but I believe not until this past year have I really indulged myself in ebooks, programs, surveys, forums and newsletters, all in the name of trying to master the art of internet marketing.

Daily, real life marketing is a no problem-0 for me these days, where in fact I now turn away more customers than I used to, and it’s making them come to me for more in fact, which is weird and one where I’d probably give some thoughts to for a blogpost in future, but in internet marketing today, I think I’m still a newbie.

There’s so much to learn, especially with Google and Yahoo, the key to any internet marketer’s success, continually tweaking their search engines. And with Bing’s recent arrival, the competition has just begun. I’ve just spent my whole wee hours of the morning last night completing an ebook, gone through a couple videos and finally managed to complete a website which I’ve been putting on hold for much too long. I did in 4 sleepy hours what I should have completed 4 months ago.

Anyway, now that it’s done and dusted with, I’ll prefer to let it bite the dust and lay it there for now, and since it’s on autopilot anyway, it should be doing it’s job silently behind the curtains — the way that all things should run, right?

Primary 5 Student Commits Suicide.

Overhead at SGForums.com, my niggling question of how can a P5 student even attempt suicide? Whether this story is true or not, it’s chilling to the bone.

How can right? How can? Really, how can?

Like, how does an 11year old even thinks about suicide at such a young tender age? TS (thread starter) hasn’t post any source yet, apart from saying that it’s from a Facebook account of a teacher who expresses her/his dismay at his/her student’s demise, but just the thought of it makes me sick.

So much life to live and so much joy to experience yet the student i’s depressed enough to end a life.

Could it be stress? Could it be abuse? Actually it could be many things, but for sure there’s one thing that is lacking that’s a catalyst to the situation, that is family support.

A family is a pillar of strength, a foundation of one’s life, especially a young thing’s fragile life. Why would anyone miss out on life, miss out on the love that a family is able to provide, unless it isn’t there in the first place.

And if a family isn’t there, friends are the next best thing. Make loads of friends and make not enemies. Sure there’ll be those that are bound to dislike you, or hate you even, but by surrounding yourself with the positives (friends, family) you naturally create a pillow to fall back on and naturally your mindset will not be plagued into a paranoia of hatred or revenge or whatever sinister things there is, that could possibly amount to suicide.

I grief for the student’s condition, if really such an event took place.

Hais — one less joy to share with in this world.

My Belated 27th Birthday Appreciation

This post was first written on 26th January but has since stretched till 30th January due to unnecessary editings. Please bear with it…

Wishing all Chinese Happy New Year and to all, Happy Holidays!!! Oh, and to newly 27 year old me, Happy Birthday!!! 

Perhaps I’d like to try a thank you speech eh? * Takes a deep breathe * And my belated special thanks goes to…  

Dad & Mama: For caring for me, despite my mischievious persona, throughout these 27 years. Thanks for calling me in the morning from KL to wish me, and not inviting me to tag along for the holiday trip! Woot!

Bro: Thanks for caring and buying me Nasi Ayam that afternoon, which I couldn’t eat cos I took too much chicken sandwich earlier. Anyway, to show my appreciation, I’ll be wearing the Liverpool jersey you bought for me last year, for the whole of today. Liverpool Rulez!

Sis: Thanks for the wish, despite nursing that annoying fever. Sorry If I couldn’t be home more often to share with you some lessons or stories about school and work, but I’ll try to be home more often. Thanks for keeping me company when I come home late and showing the care like a sister should!

Godma n GodSisters: You guys have been a wonderful addition in my life. Ever since my late mum left me, noone else have filled that gap with more love and care than you. I truly appreciate all the gifts you’ve given and have enjoyed all our moments spent together. Lovely!

Fahmi, Han & Jar: If there ever was a war, I’m pretty sure that the four of us would be the last men standing, victorious and laughing our ass off. Thanks for spending my birthday together, full of craziness and… well, lots of craziness! I’m quite sure that there is nothing that the four of us can’t ever accomplished! We rox!

Skopets: For accepting an older experienced guy into your team, I’m already grateful for that. I may have been the senior fella during our Secondary school days but that’d never stop us from becoming a great team right? I’m thankful for the regular soccer games that you guys deliver, and may the skopets win the league this season!

My Lovely Friends: Yanni, Linda & Adilah, without fail you will remember to wish me on my special day EVERY YEAR and I am always grateful for that. There aren’t that many friends like you guys, and I’m thankful for our rainbow friendship – i.e rainbow ‘cos there’s no end in sight. 

LAST BUT NOT LEAST… Everyone that I may have missed out: I’d like to list out everyone but at 4am, its hard to remember anymore names and I’m not in the thoughts of stretching this post any longer, so to anyone whom I may have missed out, apologies from moi, but many thanks for remembering my occasion! Everyone rox!!!

And Yes! Finally, a new look for a brand new year, and hopefully a brand new me too! Things look brighter now, eh? Uber cool!!!
