It has been a year!!

Whoot!!! Tomorrow is the anniversary of my blog!! So today is the last day of the “year” for my blog. Just a tid bit of useless information.

I have been “writing” blogposts in my head for the past week or so, which can only mean that it is time to get back to blogging. πŸ˜› Though the blog post I have in mind is a little sombre. I am still undecided if i want to pen that down and have if read by the world. I am ok with the people I don’t know reading about it. it is the people I know who might read it is the thing that is stopping me. I know that I can out in a password protected post but that defeats the purpose of a blog doesn’t it? I am still debating. Who knows what will happen in the future. I might just write it down some day.

At the rate that I am going with my blogging, I doubt that I will have a following on my blog. I am such an uninspired, lazy ass blogger.@_@ I don;t even know why I bother. But, I have discovered the joys of instagram. LOL!! If you follow me there, I have more updates there.*Shamelessly promoting myself*. Look for @mouseytong. Lately, I only have myself on the Instagram updates as I am bogged down by work and it is office, meeting, office, meeting, travel, planes, taxis. Nothing interesting. I am not even a fashion blogger but dressing up makes me feel better. πŸ™‚ So, for lack of better updates, I take photos of myself in things that make me happy.

I should definitely say my goodbye for now. This post is not making sense. It is just my ramblings on things that have just popped up. Like the realisation that tomorrow is the anniversary of my blog. Random sh*t!

Better sign off for now.

Toodeloos people. I promise I will write something for tomorrow. *pinky promise*

Losing out on a technicality

Not sure if you, the readers, realised that I have been diligently posting a post EVERY single day. πŸ™‚ Just a little upset on the fact that I will be breaking my “a post a day” today. It is still the 18th here, but on my laptop is already the 19th, 4.21am. I thought it over, but I don’t quite like to type a post on my phone. That would really drive me crazy. So, I am losing out on a technicality. Yes, I could just change the time on my laptop but I keep it on Malaysian time for me to keep track of it when I call my family with skype. I do the same with my mobile when in Malaysia. I leave my Italian mobile on Italian time to keep track without having to subtract or add each time I want to make a call. Lest, I wake anyone up and scare the bejesus out of them.

It scares me silly when my phone rings in the middle of the night. Only in emergencies will my mobile ring at night. It happens occasionally that clients don’t realise or remember the time difference and really frightened me. I would wake up shocked, stare at the phone, compose myself when I realise that it is not from home or any other family member and answer. This is the unwritten rule at home. I think it is the same for everyone. If I can, I never turn off my mobile at night. My dad used to ask me why. At that time, I was staying away from home, at college and sharing an apartment with friends. There was no home phone line. Everyone had their own mobile and I was contactable ONLY via my mobile. That was why I kept it on.

One night, I heard my phone’s battery dying. Since I was already in bed, I decided to let it die off. Remembering my dad’s words. It was the old Motorola where we had to change the batteries while the other charges on the charging pods. The next morning, I changed the batteries and the first message I heard over the phone was, “Ann, dad here. I have some chest pains and I am driving to the hospital now.” I was shocked! Next message was, “Ann, your dad is in the hospital. He had some chest pains. Go and see him.” Imagine how I felt that morning. I rushed to class, handed in my assignments and asked a friend to drive me to the hospital. From that day on, when I can help it and I don’t have to ie. in flight, I never turn my phone off. Though my sis says that there is no point having a mobile if I never carry it with me. πŸ˜› She says, the phone and I are almost always miles apart.

In my defense, when I am home or in the office, the mobile is either on the table or the couch and I don’t carry it with me everywhere, like going to the toilet or to the kitchen to get a drink. Cause it is still near me just not attached to me. M says the same. hehehehe! but M does have the worst timing in the world. He calls when I am in the shower, in the toilet doing some business and the only moment I walk away from my mobile. Always! I could be next to it for 23 hrs and 59 mins but that 1 min I walk away he will call. Worst timing ever! >_<

Anyway, I don’t want to change the time just for this post. I shall have to bear with it. *sniff*

Just a photo to end this post. Totally unrelated, of course.

A French Shepard. First time for me seeing one. They are so beautiful!
