A Sweet Gooly-mo'

Before I begin my story, a Big KOLO MEE BIRTHDAY WISH shoutout to Ehon, a brilliant Kuchingite in Brisbane! Tried to look for a kolo mee cupcake for u but failed... :p Have a good one, mate! ;-)

Okay, so sometime last week, I had a very pleasant experience at the local supermarket near my place. Wanted to get a shopping trolley and there were lots of trolleys available, 3 rows in all. But there was a big problem... all of 'em seem to be 'stuck'! Yup, S.T.U.C.K., and me being the si lembik that I am, failed to pull out any from all the 3 rows. Can you imagine me, using all my limbs (yes, my kakis tangans), trying to release the 'stuck' trolleys, while carrying my big sling bag? Thinking back, big possibility I looked very Mr. Bean in that half a minute.. -__-'''

So, there I was, a damsel in distress, looking desperate and helplessly at the many trolleys available but  failed to get one on my hands. However, some lucky stars must have shone on me that day... ying hung gao mei... [translation: hero to the rescue, a damsel in distress... more or less lah!]

While I was struggling trying to release one of the trolleys, from the corner of my eye, I saw a boy who was doing the same. At most, he's about 6-7 years young. Suddenly, I saw that he managed to release 2 trolleys. Inside me I was thinking, "Shit lah! Small boy oso more powderfool than me! How can?!" And while I was having that thought inside me, the Little Gentleman™ said to me in Mandarin, "Here's one for you."

And what did I do?

I smiled and went, "Ohhh! THANK YOU!" And I smiled summore.

I saw his face. He had that Happy Boy™ face... a very satisfied-with-himself kinda face.

Abuthen seconds later, came another bigger boy who took his trolley away... alamak... by then I was already about 5-6 steps away from him... but I think the Little Gentleman™ didn't mind... not even one bit...

After about a minute or so, the incident was seen flashing a few times at the back of my mind And I thought to myself (again), "Hey, I just had a darn schweet Gooly-mo!(ment)" Our Little Gentleman™ reminded me of Gooly the Gentleboy who jumped into the pond to 'save' the girl's wallet.

From that moment on, I was pretty convinced, that chivalry is most probably inborn. I mean, how can you teach a young child, that when you see an auntie struggling to get herself a trolley, that when  you manage to get one yourself, you should offer one of the trolleys to auntie? How? How? Can teach meh? *shakes head* Donch think so... But I also think that parents play a big role in instilling good values... [ok ok, who am I to talk abt parents, instill good values blablabla...]

When I related the incident to mom, she smiled and said, "Ohhh, what a caring boy!"

Caring... so yeah, we need more Goolypops in the world!

Sunday's Sky Sharing

Mr. Lee shared his Kota Damansara evening sky over here and it reminded me of what I've captured sometime back.. one was last week, and the other one, last October...

The Butterfly upon the Sky,
That doesn't know its Name
And hasn't any tax to pay
And hasn't any Home
Is just as high as you and I,
And higher, I believe,
So soar away and never sigh
And that's the way to grieve --

about pirated stuff & chen's birthday

I was very shocked to read this, posted by someone in Facebook: (C & P)

Please do not keep any pirated or burned CDs, DVDs, or VCDs in your car. 
Police and Domestic Trade & Consumer Affairs Ministry's enforcement  division in Malaysia have started the operation to search and fine anyone who keep pirated disc inside their car especially through road block at all main road and expressways.

If any pirated or burned disc found inside your car will be charged RM400 per disc. Example 30 discs found means the fine will be RM12,000.

One of the Plexus colleague brother-in-law caught by Police due to pirated CD in the car on the way to town for lunch with his friend in the afternoon. One CD fined RM400...oh no..

Please disseminate this to all your friends who are driving in Malaysia ! 

I cannot confirm how far this is true but knowing our cuntree... anything's possible.. sigh!!

*fast fast go and take out CDs from the car*

Last but not least, many happy
returns of the day to Chen Sotong!

Okay, an 'update' about the Singaporean Couple Drama:

A MAN caught on video being hit in the private parts by his girlfriend with her high-heel shoe, is a director of an international property company.

Nanyang Siang Pau reported that the couple had been dating for two years. A person who claimed to be the couple's friend contacted the media after the video clip was widely circulated on the Internet and the news was reported in local newspapers.

The friend said the 41-year-old man was among the top 10 agents in the company and due to his excellent performance, was appointed as director of a department overseeing more than 100 agents.

 "He is good looking, wears glasses and looks younger than his real age."

"He drives a big car, lives in condominium and is popular among the women," the friend said, adding that the man was divorced and has a daughter. 

The friend said the 21-year-old woman was a receptionist at the property company two years ago. However, she did not last long as she often wore sexy dresses and received numerous warnings from the Human Resources Department. Since then, she has not worked and depends on the boyfriend.

The person who posted the comment the other day also posted this later on:

Humans are equipped with a finely tuned intuition to smell cracks in a relationship. Some relationships can sometimes feel suffocating. Somehow ppl don't really change deep down, and can't change their ways to accomodate the other. Irreconcilable differences, tensions, personality clashes are sheer purgatory. In the circumstances it's best to call it quits - in the interests of both parties - than to be stuck with an unsuitable partner along with a lifelong union of irreconcilable conflicts. Cool down, leave your options open and keep in touch with your psychiatrist/counsellor always. Keep your end up!
