Gratitude

Sometimes, out of the blue, I do good things for people. I have no idea why I am so nice. Today, I was bitten. It just proves that being nice to certain people is just a waste of time.

The person I am talking about is, of course, Bonnie.

When I was in USA, she asked me to buy a toy by a company called Leapfrog for her 6 months old girl. I was reluctant because toy is big and heavy. I am already challenged in terms of packing things into my luggage. Later however, my big heart tells me to do it. I shopped in Toys R Us and bought her a nice learning soft toy. She also wanted an iPod nano dock and I bought her one also since I am getting a dock for myself.

Anyway, I sent her an email and told her the amount. It cost RM216.64, equivalent to US$56.27.

Instead of depositing RM216.64 into my maybank account she put in RM212.79. The reason is she used the daily exchange rate. I was pissed at that point because here I am, doing her a favour, and instead of paying me the equivalent amount, she's paying me less. I told her that she still owe me RM3.85 because the bank used a higher exchange rate. She jokingly said that she asked me to pay cash when I buy the toy and not credit card. I let it be. She said she will give me the difference when she sees me in office.

Today, I reminded her again that she owe me RM3.85. Guess what she did? The bitch gave me 3 pieces of RM1, 3x 20 sen coin, 4x 5 sen coin and 5 pieces of 1 sen coin. WHAT THE FUCK?

"Why did you give me 1 sen? Is this how you show your gratitude? I am buying things for you and you are short changing me. Where is the courtesy?", I cried loudly so everyone can hear.

"It's still money.."

"The least you could do is give me exact change. I did this favour for you and this is how you repay me. I know what not to do next time. You have no shame, really. At least, TheBoss rounded up the sen when I bought things for her daughters."

"She's the boss.. she can afford it."

"It's common manners.. You obviously don't have any. Please pay me properly."

"I don't have change."

"I do."

"Ok then, here's RM5."

"How would you feel if I give you all in 1 sen?"

"I don't mind at all."

She's lucky I didn't have enough 1 sen. I gave her 1 piece of RM1, a 10 sen coin and 5x 1 sen.

You see, RM3.85 is not a lot of money. It's just US$1. It's just a can of Diet Coke. But money is not the issue here. It's the principal behind it. When people buy you things and carry them 9,000 miles over the Pacific, you are grateful. You treat that person to a nice lunch or maybe a nice cup of teh tarik. You don't short change people and when people ask you for the money, you don't give them 1 sen. Seriously, for a mother of one, I pity her. She's really sick in the head. She hates people doing her favours and yet she behaves this way.

WHAT A BITCH! I won't be nice anymore. I swear!

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…
