Yesterday a 15 year old was admitted with fracture of his femur following a motorcycle accident. When I asked him whether he has a driving license the dad (who sounded irritated) told me that he was just riding in the neighborhood.... Uh duh... Stupid dad. Doesn't he know that a lot of accidents involving youngsters and motorbikes are in the housing estate.

He was lucky he only had a broken femur, things could be worse... head injury, cervical fractures, abdominal injuries all which can be fatal. And to fracture a femur a huge force is required... I wonder what was the speed at impact? At least 80km an hour... hmmm ... housing estate?

I was trying to goggle the info on motorvehicle accidents in housing estates in Malaysia but no avail... Maybe some one should pull out the data on this and show these moronic parents!!! They should shoulder the responsibility on a parents. I am all for punishing the parents (or owner of the vehicle) if a child or youngster is caught without a valid driving license.

Kids think it's child's play but one has to forgive them, they do not know and have not seen the dangers of motorcycles . It is the adults who have to guide and direct them.

I am sure in a year or two this kid is going to be admitted again for some other fracture. Then he is going to say the same thing... "It wasn't my fault", that is, if he is alive!

Some one in the family finally marries

After so much fuss, my darling sister got hitched on 7th July. My sis is 29, much younger than me. I am happy for her as her husband appears to be a down to earth person. Congratulations dear.

I was told this once,

Jika takut dialun ombak
Jangan bina rumah tepi air

Petty there such a thing?

A few kids went and trample on my garden to steal the rambutan... they were so arrogant that they refuse to budge when I told them off... only left when I threatened them...

These are kids 10-12 years... There must be something these kids think that my tree is their property... Don't mind if they ask but stealing???

Siakap senohong gelama ikan duri
Bercakap bohong lama-lama mencuri...

Hmmm.. kalau dah mencuri tu... lama-lama????

Goodbye Danko

This morning my brother sms'ed me. "Happy birthday, btw Danko is dead"

Danko is our cat... actually Marina was the one who adopted her but it became our cat. We named her Danko after sargeant Danko of the Dirty Dozen (my favorite show back then) and her sibling was named Hitler as she had a small 'mustache' that looked like the dictator... Anyway, Hitler died as a kitty and Danko lived to be 18 years.

She was my companion when I used to stay up late to study for SRP, SPM and STPM.... and she used to sit on my books when she thought I had studied enough...

Mom said she died in the house... as all cats, she tried to get out to die alone but my mother won't let her.... so I'm glad she did not die alone.

Sad as I am.... but she has been a good cat... Know you'll reach cat heaven. Love you, Danks.

What the F@#%?

Two people I know are feeling absolutely down this week. Their emotions were determined by actions of others, their loved ones. Both expressed to me their intentions of not living anymore... I am truly aghast, sad.... for both are strong persons who have lived life to the fullest and who have very strong personalites.

I am truly sad.....

I now choose not to ever let anyone be a factor in my happiness... It's only me and myself.

Mid life crises, old age depression

Is this what he's thinking when all this happened???

SOng: Kekal
Singer: Spider

Tidak percaya
Dan pernah aku menduga
Kasih terpisah
Dalam sekelip mata

Sukar untuk dimengerti
Berat untuk difahami
Mengapa mawarku berduri

Kau pelangi mengiringi gerimisku
Kau.. kau di dalam hatiku
Kau dalam ingatan
Kau sebagai kasihku
Kekal sepanjang zaman

Kira kau dan aku
Satu hari nanti
Akan bersatu

Biar terbakar jiwa di perjalanan
Ku bersumpah
Akan pulang ke pangkuan

Kau cahaya menyinari duniaku
Kau kekal di dalam hatiku

Kau dalam ingatan
Kau sebagai kasihku
Kekal sepanjang zaman
Kira kau dan aku
Satu hari nanti
Akan bersatu ( 2X )

Song of the week

Been listening to two malay songs over this week.... A bit melancholic this week... since my birthday is reaching soon.... and I will be working here

The 1st Tiada Lagi -by Amy Search. It was originally sung by Mayang Sari

Sia-sia sudah
Kita jalin cinta
Bila hati selalu berbeda

Sampai kapan lagi
Aku harus menahan
Rasa kecewa di dalam dada

Seandainya kita masih bersatu
Tak mungkinkan menyatu
Walau masih ada sisa cinta
Biarkan saja berakhir sampai
Di sini

Tiada lagi yang ku harapkan
Tiada lagi yang ku impikan
Biar aku sendiri tanpa diri mu
Tiada lagi kata cintamu

Takkan lagi ku bersama mu
Biar ku simpan semua
Kenangan ku bersamamu
