Bonnie

I had almost enough with Bonnie. Bonnie is obviously a symbolic word for the people you have problem with in work. So this Bonnie at work is getting on my nerves. Bonnie complains a lot. Bonnie is selfish. He usually likes to put people in difficult position and think he's doing everyone a favour. This is probably vague without example so here's one. When I moved to the new place, Bonnie would asked loudly in front of everyone - when can we go to your house for a visit? It will be fun. Can we have BBQ at your place? What do you expect a normal person to respond? People will usually say yes. Which is what I meant by Bonnie putting people in a difficult position. I, of course replied No. I don't do BBQ. Thanks for asking. I often wonder, why don't Bonnie never volunteers and say why not come to Bonnie's house for BBQ? Coz he knows that it's a big mess to do all these stuff. He just wanna have fun. Bastard.

Then the other month, Bonnie complained about the air quality in the floor which is a valid complain. So we called the office guys to come and investigate. Made a big hoo haa. Office guys came and promised to vacumm floor more often. As to air quality, they said they can't do much. After all, this in a centralized air cond but they will try their best.

So yesterday, to our surpise, the office guy came around 4pm and change the air cond cover - you know, those square air ducts. We have around 6-7 cover to change. The office guy did not make any noise. It was just a simple switch. Climb up the ladder, swap the cover. Bonnie started making noises.. saying how come they don't do it on a Saturday and he wanted to complain. I was so fed up - I said why make a big deal out of this? This is probably a 10 minute exercise.. Why can't you just freaking tolerate it???

Today Bonnie complained again. I came in around 1130am. It was hot! I switched on the split unit air cond. He started making noise that it was cold. He cannot stand it. I said it is hot in my place. Would you like to swap place? He said don't want to swap place. Can switch off air cond? Then we asked around and and everyone said it is hot. Only then did Bonnie shut up. GRR!

There's more about Bonnie. When I did think of more example of his selfishness and self righteousness, I'll post more.

One million daimoku

In April 2008, Anne and I started our resolution to chant 1 million daimoku in one year. It's already Jan - and I am only one-third of the way. I really need to WORK HARDER - coz I made another 1 million resolution from Jan - Dec 2009.

The chart you see on the right of this post is a chart that we put beside our butsudan. It tracked our chanting progress. Every 20 minute, we coloured one box. Mine is the one on top, Anne's at the bottom - you can see that she made much better progress than me! Hmmm.. come to think of it, I am not even at one third!!

Edit 22 March 2009: Thanks to Google, a couple of friends in faith found this post and they want to know how many hours of chanting is required to achieve one million diamoku. Here it is. Based on our publication in Malaysia, 20 minutes of chanting is equivalent to 1,000 daimoku. So, one hour is 3,000 daimoku. 1 million would take about 333 hours.

LG UltraWide Monitor 38WK95C Review

I bought this today. It was not an impulse buy. I spent months researching and then two months of waiting for stock from LG Malaysia.


Trust me, it is not easy to buy a modern monitor these days.

I have a few criteria:
ultra wide screen regardless of size - can be 32" or 34" or even 34"it must be IPS screen, not TN or whatever the other one is calledit must have USB-C to charge the MacBook Pro and also to extend the display of the MacBookit must have good speakers. Not the puny ones that some Dell monitor shipped with. Really good ones. I hate having to plug in the speaker jack from PC to monitorit should have G-Sync supportbonus - it has nice legs that doesn't take up space I have searched high and low. I looked for Asus, I looked at Dell and Alienware.. none of them ticked these checkboxes, particularly that USB-C one..

I realize that I really wanted the USB-C and good speakers. I don't really care about G-Sync because even though I still play games, I spen…

2017 Honda CRV in Malaysia! An owner's review

After years of driving an old car, I finally decide to change. And having a small family, I was eyeing a SUV. Last year, we were considering a Mazda CX5 because of its exterior look but after inspecting it in a showroom and then sitting on a Honda CRV, we have no doubt that Honda was the choice to go. Our decision was simply based on how spacious the interior cabin of the CRV is compared to the CX5.



And so, we have to decide whether to get one early this year or wait for the new CRV which was supposed to launch in May 2017 (well, that was before Honda Malaysia decided to delay the launch date after Raya). What made me wait for the new model was that the sales agent told me that the new CRV will have a new engine and Apple CarPlay! Being an Apple fan, as you can tell from this blog, I definitely wanted CarPlay. We dropped a deposit with the showroom sales agent in April.

I waited patiently and when Honda finally launched the car on 12 July, the wife and I went to the showroom for a lo…
