the credit card crunch?

I was checking out the cashier counter at Jusco, when I saw something stupid in my opinion. A lady sticking out her credit card just to pay for a bunch of shorts. Perpetual stupidy I say.

one week visitation

*May contain graphic images. Adult supervision advice.*
Last Monday, I woke up with high fever before going to class.
It was to the general hospital for treatment
I had rashes prior to the high fever

Intravenous drip. 
up close.

So I went back as asked by the doctor. The fever didn't subside so I went back to the hospital and I decided to stay in the ward and on Tuesday morning I was admitted to the dengue ward.
the bloody hospital bed. The doctor seem to be having a hard time drawing out blood from my arm.
the best and some say the only way to treat dengue is to consume lots of fluid.

fellow patients
medication for the rashes
of charts and descriptions
the bed for 8 days.

I never get sick easily and to be that long in the  hospital was really a new experience for me. At some days I was really feeling restless and helpless.

queue cutters

the bus driver did this awesome maneuver  where he nudge the car in-front of the traffic from behind. I say... that is seriously  one "badass" driving on his part, The part that irks me the most is how all the rest of the cars are also heading the same way. I don't know what is he in a  hurry for. Malaccan drivers deserves a two thumbs up. really..

powerlifting: an inspiration and thankfulness

I tuned in to the 19th Commonwealth Games in Delhi a few days back, and there was this one event that really struck a cord in my heart
it's the Women's powerlifting competition.

what is power lifting?Paralympic powerlifting is an adaptation of the sport of powerlifting for athletes with disabilities. The only discipline in Paralympic powerlifting is the bench press.
the participating sportswomen
those guys are there to catch the weights is she is unable to lift it.
sadly she didn't manage to lift the weight required of her.

A valiant effort indeed. 

It was a good reminder of striving to achieve something in the midst of our own inadequacies. Never shall I complain about my own, considering for the fact that my hands and limbs are still working.

of corner kicks and intimidation

Nice one I might say.....

Why is everyone getting so uptight about this situation. You might never know, it was just an act.

the youzhny: Revisited

When I saw Youzhny on the maindraw of the Malaysian Open Tennis, it reminded me of this particular incident.
I don't know why, but it pisses me off lately when people start interrupting on my conversation with someone else.
That is how a problem of miss communication starts, you speak when you are not suppose to and don't speak when you are suppose to.
Two Basic rules:

  1. Please don't interrupt someone else who are talking( it is just not happening when everyone wants to talk at the same time)
  2. Please listen out to the other person and don't always think you are always right. You might learn something from listening out to that person.

Malaysian Open Tennis, Kuala Lumpur 2010

Woohoo!! I am here!!

This is one of my favourite player, Nikolay Davydenko, but unfortunately he crashed out early

It was really interesting to travel back and forth from the place that I stayed to the stadium

Scenes from the quarterfinals 
There was a line for an autograph session.
It was a long wait, as 
It was Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus 

Outside of the stadium

The match between Igor Andreev vs Milos Raonic.
Q] I Andreev (RUS) d [Q] M Raonic (CAN) 6-1 3-6 6-3

Roanic in action

Marcos Baghdatis vs  Mikhail Youzhny. This was a thrilling match. 
[4] M Youzhny (RUS) d [6] M Baghdatis (CYP) 6-7(5) 7-5 6-1

The finals
The finals line-up

 My tennis kaki Alvin Arul. Thanks for the company and the discussions about everything tennis

If you look closely that is Denis Istomin practicing with Andrey Golubev before the Double's final starts

So sorry for the lack of photos. I was busily taking videos instead. So just wait for that peeps.
In conclusion ,it was seriously one of the best highlights of the year, and this was the bomb, comparable to the Jason Mraz concert I went last year. The quality of play was really good and there were some really jaw dropping moments in some of the matches.  Andrey Golubev upstaged Soderling in the quarterfinals and beat David Ferrer in the semifinal. Phew!that was really something.  Eventhough the stadium was not filled to brim, but the respond to the players were really good.

Definitely coming back next year.

P.S. anyways special shoutout to the Ong family for letting me bunk at their home. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
