Kash

I need a hair cut. Badly. I have been so busy that I have no time to go to my usual salon in Mid Valley. This evening, I decided against my will to go to this salon across the road from where I work. I have been to this salon twice and I had a bad experience. That is why I have not returned. But I am desperate. So, I took a gamble and went today.

At the counter, the girl asked me if I have any specific "sifu" that I wanted. I said I don't have preference. I just wanted someone who could give me a normal haircut. The reason I said this was on both occasions I was in this salon, they gave me a young punk-Jinjang-Ah Beng hair style. Once, I actually commented to the "sifu" that I think she overdid it and she exclaimed that this is the "in" thing and that I look good. I said no, this will get me into trouble at work. No one goes to work in this hairstyle. She just pooh poohed my comment and sort-of give me that "don't be ridiculous" look. I was pissed! I thought I was the customer!

So I told the girl at the counter I wanted someone conservative. The girl who walked me to my seat was 6 foot tall and she said she could do it for me. I said "You?" because I thought she was just a counter girl.

"Do I look hip and lala girl?" she asked.

"Of course not", I answered, feeling pai seh that I actually thought that she's a counter/shampoo girl.

So, off she goes happily cutting my hair...

"Who cut your hair previously?" she quizzed.

"I don't remember. Some girl's name that start with H something," I said, trying hard to think of her name. It sounded like Hash, Hazel or some name that only come from Hong Kong.

"There's no one named H here"

"Oh well.. maybe she left, I said" and I told her the story about this H lady who was adamant to cut my hair in HER style instead of mine and that she did not even listen when I said no.

She cut and snipped. Then she rushed to attend to another customer. Cut and snipped.. Then ran to another customer.. Hmm, why was she so busy, I wonder, and why was her rushing around and not cutting my hair, felt so, um, disturbingly familiar. Nevermind, she did a good job anyway, I thought as I checked myself out in the mirror.

When she finished, she asked me if this was conservative enough and I said yes, good job.

She walked me to the counter.

"Thank you, she said. Let me give you my card. My name's Kash.. what's yours?"

And that was when it HIT me! RIGHT in the FACE! KASH! NOT HASH! I remembered this bitch who thinks that her name sounds like Cash and that it was pretty funny.

I looked at her hard, paid the fee, cursed myself and left.

Bitch.

How did I end up with her again?

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.

Why did we choose Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Megah?

Which school did we transfer Jane to, that's probably what is in your mind? The graphics and the title above would have informed you the name of this school. But why this school?

We first heard of Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Megah from a friend. Her 8 and 11 year old daughters are now studying there. Typically, she doesn't really talk much about the school but when probed further, she told us all about the school. There are few things she said which struck me really hard. The first being that the kids and the staff in the school are a happy lot. Yes, even the staff. She said when you go to the school and talked to the teachers, the Headmistress Puan Khoo or even the office staff, you will feel an ambiance of  warmth and politeness from everyone. It's a very pleasant feeling, unlike many schools where the atmosphere is cold. And she also said that the children there, her own two daughters, are always looking forward to school.

The second thing she said which also left an impr…

How to change Twitterrific V6 Theme

Yesterday, my favorite Twitter client, Twitterrific, released V6. I have been using Twitterrific for years and while I sometimes try other clients, I always end up with Twitterrific. So, I am extremely happy to see it still being actively developed.

One of my favorite features of this release is the introduction of new themes. There is one theme I really like. It's called Parakeet and it's almost based on the Solarized Dark colour scheme. However, there is no Solarized Light and so, I was delighted to learn that there is a way to change the theme manually by changing the .plist file.

Twitterrific syncs the theme file to iCloud Drive under the Twitterrific folder. There is a Themes folder and inside it is a Day and Night subfolder. They also nicely included a sample theme file, named Sample.twitterrifictheme. All you have to do is copy the file and drop it to the Day subfolder and magically, Twitterrific client will pick it up. The theme files for all the included 6 themes can b…
