Wuhuu! A quarter of the year is nearly past. What had I done in these few months?
2) Start making earrings, anklets, necklaces and bracelets pieces for my friends. The best part of it, they are paying me money for it!! I didn't earn much, but at least I can cycle the money to buy more jewelery pieces.
3) Help my sister to recover from her depression (hopefully).
4) Went traveling to Pulau Perhentian. Heavenly beaches.
5) Help a person to propose to my mum. However, she declined.
6) Lost my handphone. Cilok my sister's. hehehe.
7) Gain additional 3 kgs to my not so slim body.
8) Start another blogsite to showcase my jewellery pieces.
9) Learn abt new products, mainly Veritas (Backup Exec) and Symantec (AV and Mail Server
for MS Exchange) suite. Hey, I can install AND configure these babies in detail. Ok, I had acquired these skills since last year, but who's counting the months? ;)
10) Realized that I need to be me. With thick glasses, big ass, warts and an attitude. If you cannot get along with me, better leave this area.
11) Another realization. I love to drink blood.
Ok, ok...not the last one. But being a vampire would be cool. At least they can wear dark colored makeup with dark clothes and only go out at night, that's why vampires look slim.
Am reading - Rats, Bats and Vats by Dave Freer and Eric Flint. Downloaded from Baen website. I like to download e-books from the website. A lot of Sci-Fi stories. Damn yummy.
Am listening to My Hips Don't Lie by Wyclef and Shakira. Makes me want to belly dance. Alone for now, my tummy is a bit shy.

Taken from Wikipedia
Suicide (from Latin sui caedere, to kill oneself) is the act of willfully ending one's own life. Suicide is sometimes used as a noun for one who has committed or attempted the act.
I would truthfully say that people that commit suicide are cowards. Why? Because they commit suicide when they do not want to face the world. They are afraid to face the consequences of what they had done. Or what they imagine would be the results of their actions. Or when they feel that their pain are bigger than life itself.
Then, there are people that tried to commit suicide as a form to get attention, "cry for help" if you want to call it. For these people, please, please, let us help you. Do not be stubborn and try to deny what your subconcious mind had already acknowledged. You ARE sick and required help.
Just a question, do you think that when you die, would your family rejoice? Or your friends celebrate?
Usual scenario is that the family WOULD spiral into depression. Sometimes other members of the family would also commit suicide, from the depression and guilt caused by their inability to foresee and change the history. Your friends would also be changed forever. Not to say the community where the suicide occurs. The pain WOULD grow larger, enveloping many more people. Is this what you want? To cause more life and souls to be lost?
Don't let me start on the religious angle. All of the religions in the world prohibit suicide. Please inform me if you find one that say God would like it if you kill yourself. For a Muslim, Allah would even reject their souls and forever they would be in Hell. An eternity of loss for what? Stupid choice, I would say.
I come from a broken family. I am the eldest child so the responsibility of the whole family falls on me. In addition, I need to ensure that I provide excellent example to be followed by my sisters.
Yes, I had thought of suicide many times in the past. But, I also think of all the people that would be affected by my cowardice.
So, I swim. I swim like hell. I fought with my claws and teeth to make sure that I graduated from university and my sisters get good, no, best educations that I can offer. I fought all the people and my community to ensure that no one would look askance at my mother, that she can look other people in the eye and say, even tho she is a widow, her brood excels. I fought to make sure that they got all the comforts in the world.
Think, if I commit suicide, if I lose faith and give in to my cowardice, what would happen to my family?
Someone once said that I am a swimmer. Yes my dear, I would say that I am.
I beg, if anyone of you do feel the compulsion to die, commit suicide, let go of life.... please ask for help. All is not lost. There are numerous things yet to be done, that can't be done if you die.
Listed below are a few links for assistance :
As for me, I live for the moment. I loved so that people know that they are loved. And if my God asked me to go tonite, these people can live with the knowledge that they are loved, and there is nothing nicer in the world than the knowledge that someone loves you.
My prayer with all of us.

Yey!!! I passed my Veritas Enterprise Sales Specialist exam.
Veritas...opsss....Symantec Veritas is one of the leading backup solution in the world. What we learn at the training, is who to call (from Veritas) when we are stumped, how to approach the customers, what are the strength of the solution, how to propose the various solutions (man, there are many applications based on different network configurations) and how to calculate the licenses required.
There are backup solutions from LAN-based network to WAN-based. From the training (prior to the exam), I can see that the reason why Symantec acquired Veritas. It is so that they can propose end-to-end solution to the customer.
I had been approached by customers that asked whether 'X' solution can backup their data when the data is infected? Issue is, some customers do want their data to be backed up even thought it had been infected, while some others do not. As a vendor, I need to follow the requirements set by the customer. As long as the solution can give what the customer wants, I'm happy with it. However, sometimes we need to educate the customer too. Come on lah, vendor maaaa. Kena lah jadik tenaga pengajar skets. ;)
The songs in my head,
1) Shakira feat Wyclef - My Hips Don't Lie
2) Nickelback - Faraway
3) Kanye West feat Adam Levine (Maroon 5) - Heard 'Em Say
Currently reading Stars over Stars by K.D Wentworth.

Someone stole my handphone!!
Just happened abt half an hour ago. I was travelling via Komuter, at the KL Sentral station when I heard a ringing just like the notes on my handphone. But halfway through the song, it was cut off. Since I need to go out of the Komuter, I waited until at the station, then tried to find my handphone. It was not there!!! In the meantime, the Komuter had already leave the station.
My suspicion is that whomsoever take the handphone, was flabbergasted when it started ringing. However, since the Komuter is so jam packed, and I need to go out at KL Sentral station, he successfully got the handphone.
I tried to call, but got only my voicemail.
Damned to whomsoever that took my handphone! May he/she rot in HELL! And his/her hand fell on the floor, rotten one by one. Come to think of it, the hands should be followed by feet, nose and whatever dangling flesh that is currently connected to the body.
May it all fall down, rotten!!
But a blessing, is that the person actually left my pda alone. It was on top of the phone, and he left it alone. Thank God. For that stupidity, may his mind and brain are left intact for a long, long, long, long, long time.
The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.
- T.A. Conrad
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
- William Blake,
excerp from Auguries of Innocence.
