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. --- Edit 8 April 2018: Checking my blogger stats, this post is pretty hi

Amazon Alexa in Malaysia - does it work well? A review...

Feels like Christmas in September. Thanks to Doktor Cinta, my friend who live in Australia. Back in July, Amazon Australia had a Prime Day. I joined the trial using my usual Amazon account and ordered an Echo Dot, Echo Plus (the taller one with a built-in hub) and a Kindle Paperwhite, shipping them to a dear friend in Australia. My friend visited Malaysia and brought the Echos with him two weeks ago. You can imagine my thrill to get my hands on Alexa and start using it... in Malaysia. As a side story, sometimes, you can't believe how events are aligned properly to prepare my place to be a connected home - I bought a superb new mesh network router, eero (by the way, I'd say it's one of my best electronic purchases after an iPhone! It is that good), which acts as a strong WiFi backbone as it blanket my double storey house with a reliable and fast WiFi. Then, maxis launched Fibernation program which let me to upgrade my internet from 6 Mbps (pathetic) to 100 Mbps wit

Who is the official service center for Seiko watches?

The Great Blue; Kinetic Auto Relay 100M I have a 15 year old Seiko watch which I love very much. It's a Great Blue series and kinda one-of-its-kind, because Seiko discontinued it as soon as it was launch. So, there are very limited number of units. The watch I own is a Kinetic Auto Relay which means it is powered by my arm movement. And the nice thing about it is that if I don't use my watch, it hands will not move but the Kinetic capacitor which stores energy (up to 4 years of inactivity) will continue to keep track of the time. When I picked up the watch and shake it a bit, it will wake up and auto adjust to the correct time whether it is AM or PM. But my watch is 15 year old. At that age, the capacitor cannot hold a lot of charges. These days if I left my watch unused for 2 days, the watch stopped keeping time. I need to get the capacitor replaced. But who is the official service center for Seiko? The thing about luxury watches is that if you don't send it to
