Sabar je laaa....

I am taking leave today to bring En Hubby for follow-up treatment. Did I write about this? En Hubby jatuh longkang last week. A big longkang at the car park. Where were I that time? While walking to the car (at night) I tersinggah tengok tudung at the nearby shop, sedar sedar there he was in the longkang. He got MC for 1 week. He is supposed to extend his MC for another week but he refused. Not saying that he is sooooo workaholic but he knows that at this time no time for further MC (moving towards the end of the semester for degree students-meaning lots of work in order to complete the syllabus + diploma students will start their classes next week - meaning more & more & more work to do).Ok. Thats the update about En Hubby.

What I actually want to write is about 3 phone calls which I got today from my colleagues. Should I call these 3 calls as "keluhan perasaan". The gist of the calls is all about expectation gaps. Although I fully understood what they were trying to convey but nothing much I can do because I pun in the same boat.  I pun golongan marhain.  Nak cerita pun payah...emmmmm...why not you all bacalah poem kat bawah (diceduk dari google). Kalau bole paham...itulah ceritanya....heeeeee

What Is A Boss?

A BOSS is someone who comes in early and stays late.
A BOSS is someone who says the nice things to cheer us up and the bad things to settle us down.
A BOSS is a janitor who cleans up messes and sweeps them under the rug! No just kidding!
A BOSS is a coach who stands behind their staff and says, “We are a team” and “There is no I in team!”
A BOSS is a parent who pushes us to be our best, even when they really want to push us over a cliff.
A BOSS is a shrink even though there is no couch in their office, they still look at you over their glasses and say “How does that make you feel?”
A BOSS is a gardener consistently pruning and snipping and clipping away at all the tangled webs and vines we weave.
A BOSS is a zookeeper repeatedly shoveling up what we get into neck deep.
A BOSS is a tour guide always point things out the landmarks to the left and right, like this is your workspace and this my workspace.
A BOSS is a teacher, even when they think we act like kindergartners they still treat us like college grads!
A BOSS is a great physician, they can diagnose a pain in the butt and gracefully and privately treat the problem!
A BOSS is a circus ring leader, even when the lions try to eat us for breakfast, they crack their whip and say, “The show must go on!”
A BOSS is a weather forecaster, when a day looks cloudy they still can predict sunshine for tomorrow to give us things to look forward too.
A BOSS is a saint, Oh, blessed saint of the office give us the strength to make you proud to call us staff.

My Boss & I 

when i take long time
i'm slow

when my boss takes long time
he is thorough

when i dont do it
i'm lazy

when my boss doesn't do it
he is busy

when i do something without being told
i'm trying to be smart

when my boss does the same
that is initiative

when i please my boss
i am apple polishing

when my boss pleases his boss
he is co-operating

when i do something good
he never remembers

when i do something wrong
he never forgets

After 9 months.

It has been 9 months since I completed my treatment. Last weekend I went for another MRI scan and blood test. My appointment supposed to be at 4pm but my neurosurgeon took more than half an hour to analyse the latest results. At that time I can sense something not "right" about the results. As expected, my blood test is ok except my hemoglobin level is not up to the expected level. That answered part of the "letih" symptom which I have experienced lately. I am very depressed with the MRI result. My neurosurgeon managed to deliver the issue and explain the consequences in a very "good/gentle" way. Credit should be given to him regarding this matter. If I were in his position, I don't think I could deliver the same message to my patient in a very positive tone. He tried his very best to explain to me and provide positive evidences from his previous experiences. Well.....siapakah kita untuk mempersoalkan apa yang terjadi....

The Colourful 19 years

12 November lepas, genaplah 19 tahun usia perkahwinan kami. I would describe it as the colourful 19 years. Ye laahh...bukan senang nak cantumkan dua dunia yang berbeza. Yang dok cerita yang indah indah aja dalam perkahwinan tu semuanya POYO. Hahahaha... Realitynya marriage need sacrifice. Sabar kunci utama. Pekakkan telinga  juga petua yang bagus untuk diikut. Pejamkan mata dengan benda benda yang kita tak suka tapi the other half suka pun banyak membantu. Bergaduh juga satu exercise yang baik dalam alam rumahtangga...hahahaha... 

Thank you En Hubby kerana bersabar dengan kerenah saya. I dedicatekan lagu ni untuk you walaupun I tau you tak suka tahap gaban... Yang penting I sukaaaaa.... hahahaha

Cuba lagiii.....

" I have not failed. I've found 10,000 ways that won't work"
-Thomas A. Edison

Berbekalkan semangat Thomas Edison ( kah kah kah), saya mencuba lagi memohon research grant. This time not from Malaysia. With the help from one of my friends at USM, we collaborated to try our luck with one of the Japanese foundations. The result will be out next March. Competition is very stiff and confidence level nearly zero....kah kah kah..... Well  lets conclude this attempt is another mission impossible. Macam Winston Churchill cakap la kannn.."success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts"....heee

Searching for the hero....

So, when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And then you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you.......
