Anyway, I got a cold and am passing them to my co-workers, clients and vendors. Even tho it is recommended that people that have cold or flu to stay at home, our medical practitioners would not give me MC. Hey, takkan nak amik leave kot?

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.

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.
