"Well enough about me. Let's hear about from you. What do you think about me?"
It's hard to be with a person like this. Just plain hard. Stressful.
I have the smartest brothers in the whole wide world.
After they finished loading the car with various stuffs to bring to Kedah, they step by step locked the house (a lot of locks, I assure you). After they thoroughly ensured every lock was in place and every precaution was taken before leaving our house, they realized they left the car keys in the house.
Yup, they had to redo it all over again.
I love to balik kampung.
For a few years it is because to hang with this pretty girl, Iman.
Cute even with the face
My Little Sweetheart New Zealand
It was never ever to meet the shallow minded people with no use for the nation.
Sometimes the terrible twos can be smarter than the old skool.
Selamat Hari Raya everyone.
Maaf Zahir Batin.
Bertambah lagi lah manusia yang bodoh di Malaysia ni. Dah la bodoh. Galak sangat tapi tak nak guna protection. Buang bayi. Nanti si bodoh-bodoh ni kawin, hasilkan lagi banyak yang bodoh. Kalau tak pun, sebab bodoh sangat, bercerai. Lepas tu anak-anak terbiar, tertekan. Buat seks. More babies. This time around, even the parents can't say a thing.
That sure made him smile despite his tiredness.
I've come up with this idea to buy him guitar last year when he visited me in Auckland. He played with HR's guitar during his stay. I was surprised since I never knew he could play guitar. My suggestion was agreed by my family and with HR's help we bought him one.
Admiring his guitar. He sure loves it. Other pictures are censored of course. Mind you, it's a midnite celebration.
Happy Birthday Abah.
May all your wishes come true.
Hope you can play all your favourite songs for us soon.
My husband said he needed more space,
so I locked him outside.
What do you think about people who give others a present that was given to them by someone else? Is it appropriate? I mean, the gift was meant for you and yet you have the heart to give the present to someone else. Sounds confusing. For example, for Milah’s birthday, Ali gave her a Prada bag. Milah gave this exact bag to her friend, Suzi on Suzi’s birthday. Ahh, recycled gift is the term.
Maybe the person has put deep thought into that gift (time and money wise) and you, the receiver, don’t like it. Maybe the present suits the other person more. Maybe the present is not really ‘you’. Or simply, you have gazillion of the items already. That does not mean the gift is transferable.
I understand it is your right to do whatever you want with your gift. It is yours after all. It was already given to you. You can simply throw it away if you don’t like it. Or maybe that is better. Throw it away. Not in front of the giver of course. Rather than secretly not liking it and giving it to others and get caught.
I know the phrase ‘it’s the thought that counts’. Does it mean that it does not matter where the gift comes from? Whether it was stolen or taken by force? Whether the gift was actually meant for someone else?
I betcha the new receiver of the recycled gift also will not be entirely pleased. It is a second hand item after all. The gift might represent the worse in you since it might convey that you don’t respect the giver of the item or the new receiver.
I truly understand that your intention might be nice. You don’t wanna waste a gift that you might not use yourself. So, you give it to someone else.
Don’t try to rationalize your action. Just don’t.
However, I would draw a line if the gift is wrong in size. I mean what would I do with a size 'S' baby tee? That shows the giver does not really thought about the present hence it can be given to someone else.
* A gift is something given voluntarily without payment in return, as to show favor toward someone, honor an occasion, or make a gesture of assistance; present. I am not talking about the kinda present you got if you won something, that one you earned it so you can do whatever you want with it.
p/s: received a great pressie today. Thanks HR.
