and she said.....

Hanie has been picking up words on a faster mode nowadays. At times both of us can be amazed out of the blue when she started to voice up her own opinion in English (note: Dad is half malay n jawa , while Mum is melayu selangor). I guess that channel 63 on Astro do have some positive impact on kids.
Dad , himself has not been having the best of week at the office. One consultant is spoiling his day by making nasty remarks thru an email to my boss. And guess what , I don't give a >?@#$%% about it. Work has sort of accumulating and I need to sort it out next week so that it won't come in during the buzy may.
I will be playing golf tomorrow morning , after a month leaving that tools stuffed in the storeroom. And I am pretty sure there will be quite hitting those balls to the water hazard. Then next week will be travelling all over the place again. This time , going down under for 5 days and 4 nights. Wonder hows the weather down there next week. After down under , then most probably will have to fly into Jakarta for a few days before coming back to KL and then flying into Europe for a day or two before entering the African continent for another week or so.
Which simply means , I have to wait for another month to play golf again......

It is a pity golf is not getting the right message across

And I thought we have started to bring out professionals and more tour events in the country. But sadly , typical of being malaysian, we are also guilty of ruining the game as well. Golf courses grows in numbers and also the number of tour playing professionals as well. But yet we see a group of sportsman screaming for help and no one is actually doing anything to help them. Is it simply because golf is only for those who have the bucks? Or is it because we do not believe our own malaysian can win major tour events? Or is it simply because we should not be seen helping these professional become millionaires ?
Sports in this coutry is still divided by three main generations. First the pre-war generations , who may see sports as something unusual and facinating to watch. Then we have the war generations whom would probably sees sports as something not to be enjoyed since there is no time to paly around when bullets are flying all over the place. And last but not least the post war generations , making full use of sports facilties to make sport as way of earning a living. Most of the time post war generations will suffer , do you want to know why ?
  1. Pre-war generations may be switching the channels on tele for something more subtle. War generations might not like the idea of watching sports but probably enjoys other sports which most of malaysian do not enjoy watching live. You figure out what sports is that. And both can't stand the post war generations watching sports in full sporting spirit as if you are watching it live.
  2. In golf post war generations and war generations will be keeping the golf courses to their own space. The likes of young man playing golf is probably is nuisance to them.
  3. In this country sports officials are better treated than the athletes. We enjoy watching officials scambling for their so called high status post in such associations rather than focusing on growing the athletes.
  4. Nicol are lucky to have parents who cares. So does Shalin and many more. But how many parents do really care for their kids to excel in sports? If you can't make a good grade in your secondary educations, likely that you will be doing....yeahh you can go on make that list.....
  5. etc etc etc etc....
I was hoping someone really take up and do something about the problems the m'sian pro are facing now. I am not fighting for their welfare but on general for the good of them game and for future playing professionals in this country. Do you think young kids will be aiming to take up golf and turning pro when they see headlines like....."pro banned for not ...." naahhhhh .

ps:...........If i have the money , I will create a new tour like association and make new waves. We don't have to do it the old ways....... Am I day dreaming again??????

Sorting out my honey....

I have not been able to play golf for a month now. First it was weekend on the job flying over to Paris and then to the centre of African Continent. A week after that , it was office over the weekend to sort out year end stuf we accountant lived for. And then a week after that it was weekend looking after someone admitted with bronchitis and trying to sleep on a chairis definitely a life time experience.
Thus this weekend , I have decided to stay put at home. And catching up with sorting out those boxes which we brought over from miri about 9 months ago. That long huh.... . Finally i managed to set up that day bed in our little reading room a.k.a. cyber room where all the books , computer gadgets and other stuffs are stored.
Then I remembered this pic that I took 4 months ago. A little butterfly landing on a little flower (can't figure what was its name was, then you can figure it out for me if you know it). And then it hit me, how a small creature can fly around and landed on this little flower for what , food ? drink ? or honey ?

ps:..... and here we are moving all over the place doing the same thing....surviving.

Houston cowboy visiting Borneo

  1. He was from Houston.
  2. Visiting his friend in Sarawak.

  4. Another friend came all the way from Paris.
  5. Mum undecided whether to serve tea in a tea pot or in a flytrap pot...

ps ... daughter shasha draw the main pic and mum placed the relevant fridge magnets...

Golf produce leaders ....?

Saw that statement made on tele last nite and I can't really grasp what was the intent. But looking back some of it might be true though. I was making my way to a meeting last friday and having been there early , can't help making pictures with that SE K800i. Maybe golf have given me some impetus of why being early is a must for a golfer. If you are late to the tee box for a freindly game, your partner might say something not nice or not planning future games with you anymore. Basically if you are late , then you are disrupting the whole flights waiting behind you and of course your flight mate will stading there at the tee box making smiles and body gestures to the others waiting behind them. Thus likewise if you plan for a meeting and you did not turn up on time will it make you a good leader.
But still some golfers are not that good leaders anyway. Some make them even worse. Simply because they are too engrossed with the game , they might do more golf then do cleaning up their mess at their office. But for those who plays golf for a living, it would be a different thing all together right ? or is it ? But if we were to choose golfers to become our leaders , who do you think will be the right person to run your country ?

GA says - As long as politics is still there and human are hungry for power, excuses are made on a daily basis for the sake of human right...n you do know most of them are scoring boogie but writing birdies on their score cards...

A week or two in the heart of that continent...

The minute I reached the hotel , how I wish I could placed that on the front door and hoping they woke me up for the next flight out of the country.

But then again , once I saw those pair , quickly I sneaked into them and make my way and tour the room and the view. Opps what view ?

Ok , throw myself on the bed and the light on the right was quite a view , I guess. But then again I won't be enjoying that view that
Then , look at that table lamp. I'm definitely not looking at it tonite....

But then again, who am I kidding.....bila nak balik nie???? (that was a week ago though)
