Last Friday, I went for my physiotherapy round at Penang Adventist Hospital under Sing Nee, my physiotherapist. Since I sort of like her service and besides being hinted to give ang pow, I gave her a twenty dollar ang pow quietly. Unbeknownst to me, her assistant, Carol did not fully go out of the room and saw my giving of ang pow to Sing Nee. Well, the following treatment, Carol came to the room to collect payment early while I was still undergoing treatment and when I went out, she said loudly fifteen and sniggered as if hinting to me to give her RM 15 ang pow for doing next to nothing. My one time ang pow to Sing Nee was a gesture of appreciation and nothing more. However, I noticed the treatment was different and less attentive after giving of the ang pow. The following up treatment, was fine but as I came out from the toilet, Carol colluded with another colleague to throw her shoes directly in front of me as if making a bold statement that she is serious in getting her $15 ang pow. I personally don’t deserve such rude treatment and will be going for many rounds to physiotherapy at Penang Adventist Hospital. If this one Carol wants to be downright rude, then may I suggest that she starts looking for a new job elsewhere. After all, I am a paying customer while she is just a paid staff and has no business to be rude to patients to harass me for her ang pow! I give to whom I like and should have the freedom out of appreciation and satisfaction.

When I was small and still a primary school student, I have played different types of card games like Memory, Ginramy, amongst others. It was fun playing with my sister and mum and we all had a good time. Those were the days of carefree life. You might like to know that there is now a new game called Cards Against Humanity which was created by a group of High School alumni as a party game for a celebration. It was financed through a global crowd funding website knowns as Kickstarter sometime in 2011. Just click on the link given to find out more information.

I shall be going to KL early tomorrow morning, setting out at 6:00am in order to attend a meeting in KL at 12:00 noon. I also went for physiotherapy this afternoon at The Adventist Hospital. My life has been pretty busy with work and more work. I am not complaining and it keeps me usefully occupied round the clock. I am a workaholic by nature since young and it is in our family genes. We sisters are always doing something useful either working or contributing to our local church. I hope my new book will be published by Millionaires Planet Book Publisher, some months later.

Tomorrow, I shall be meeting with the developer's lawyer to collect my S & P agreement signed middle of last year and to pay the lawyer $4,300 in legal fees for the bank loan from RHB for my second condo, The Wave - touted to be phase 3 project by Ivory Properties. It is very costly and my first condo's bank loan fees was borne by the developer, thus saving me thousands plus 5% discount of the unit during Hari Raya promotion for the bumiputera, of which I received gleefully. Now everything costs money and things are rather exorbitant now. When I bought the second condo, it was about $800 per sq ft which has now gone up to $1,100 per sq. ft.

I went for MRI scan the other day for the pain on my left arm and it was diagnosed as supraspinatus tendonitis. In layman's term, it is inflammation of the tendons which join the muscles to the bone. I was inside the machine for like eternity, a wholesome 20 minutes hearing noises. It uses sound waves together with magnetic waves to form images slice by slice. Each slice takes about 2 minutes to form, so imagine the number of images made during the boring 20 minutes of lying down without any movement, other than breathing. The cost? A whopping $800 for the session of which I am going to claim from my one and only insurance company, Prudential. Still going for physiotherapy frequently for faster healing.

I love milking the internet - my cash cow since I signed up for my first broadband. Just the other day, I got S$15 for a 10 minute job and this converts to RM40 in my local currency. Still on the lookout for more online work such as this and preferably for long term ones that I can comfortably handle. As I work in a home office, it suits me perfectly well besides getting to take power naps in between work. My life is now blessed and a 180 degree-turn since I met my boss online, who is now my best friend. He started out as my website client, and then eventually employed me to work at home for his sports surfacing business.

I went to Hatyai during Chinese New Year 2014 with my mum and youngest sis. Dad stayed back and lived the life of a bachelor for the few days we were away. We departed by chartered van at 5:30am in the morning from our house and arrive Hatyai around 9:30am. Surprisingly, there was no one in sight, probably due to the bomb scare in Southern Thailand two days before Christmas. Hence, this time round during the festive CNY, there were hardly any tourists from Malaysia. Most prefer to stay put considering all the hoo-ha and revolt to topple the Ying Luck government.

I just came back from lunch today which is a Saturday afternoon. Had plenty of work this morning doing printing and typing of quotations in Word and Excel format. Sometimes, I think my boss needs to hire an extra help and assist me in my work. Otherwise, everything piles up on me and when he is in a foul mood, then beware. You just cannot please everyone and never raise the expectations of your boss if possible. In the meantime, you can check out Disappear VPN service, which I happen to surf around this morning and to you click to check out more information. Tomorrow will be pun choy and free yee sang for dinner at Xuan Xin together with my family. We decided to book early to avoid the Chinese New Year rush where all tables will be fully booked by then. Also got some mandarin oranges in a big carton of box for the New Year.

After my recent trip to Europe, I shall be going to Hatyai by bus during Chinese New Year with mum and youngest sis. We shall be staying for 3 days and 2 nights, departing at 5:30am in the morning when the chartered van comes to pick us up from our house. I plan to get some cosmetics and maybe some bras. As usual, we don't miss our foot massage at a place near the hotel. I hope and pray that Hatyai will be safe from the chaos in Bangkok to overthrow the government of Ying Luck. Chinese New Year is a time I stay with my family at their house since my spouse will be away for a couple of days. I just hope he gets back soon and continue the normal routine as always.

Tonight, the plane will depart to KLIA from Penang at 9:45pm before the long haul direct flight to Heathrow Airport in London, arriving tomorrow morning. I will spend about 11 hours on board the flight and spend Christmas during winter in Vatican City, Rome, Italy. I have sponsored my 2 younger sisters for this long-awaited trip to Europe since 2007. I shall be visiting 7 countries - United Kingdom, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and France. Just pray that my big luggage with food and clothing will arrive safely and not pilfered at the airport by coveting staff. Also pray that I will eventually return to Penang safely with all my items intact. This trip easily costs me $20k for the 3 of us, not including extra expenses for food and tips, souvenirs, etc.
