I’m sitting here in my office waiting for the rain to stop. The traffic jam is pretty heavy down there ~ everywhere I turned, there’s this endless line of vehicles trying to make their way home or head somewhere. I’m not in the mood to sit in a traffic jam today, so I’d rather sit here in my office and wait for the jam to clear.
I’ve called the house and told the children that I’ll be back late. Nasib baik there’s someone else working late here as well, otherwise I’d have to pack up and leave. It seems, this office building is haunted. Some people said they have spotted hantu pocong on one of the floors when they were working late. Some ustaz or ghostbusters have been summoned to halau the hantu on several occasions, but they just don’t want to leave! I’ll be dead if I bumped into one!
Ahh… by the way, it’s now 2nd December already. Very soon, it’ll be end of December and we’ll be celebrating a new year ~ 2009. How time flies, huh? I saw Venus and Jupiter the other night, along with that Cheshire cat moon. I thought that was awesome. Did anyone else see it?
When I look back to the things I’ve done/achieved/not achieved this year, I must say it requires some deep thinking to make sense of it all. Turning 40 may have something to do with it as well. I realized now that as I grow older, the things I do/see/experience are a lot more colorful and interesting as compared to when I was younger, say in my 20s or early 30s.
At that time, there were less headaches. The only problem that I had to deal with was maybe work or boyfriend problem. Sometimes, it was my mum (mainly because she didn’t like the guy I was going out with), but those were nothing compared to what I’ve to deal with these days.
These days, the issues include: How to deal with teenage tantrums? How to deal with a cheating husband? How to comfort a friend who's divorced? How to satisfy a husband?
Just the other day, I heard my cousin, who has been married for 25 years, is divorced by her husband who ran off with an Indonesian maid. A friend just lost her husband to cancer, and another friend is diagnosed with a terminal illness. How do you deal with that?
It's quite mind-boggling sometimes, to think about the issues that we have to deal with as we grow older. But these are the things that'll make our lives richer and more colourful. How we deal with it shows our level of maturity and sensitivity towards others' feelings and situations...
Well, the truth is, there's no point in this posting. I'm just babbling. My mind is not at peace but I need to write something.
On a lighter note, a dear friend is coming back to M'sia for a short holiday in mid-Dec. I am so looking forward to seeing her! After raya haji, MrsNordin & family are going on a holiday. Destination: Jakarta (again). This will be my 6th trip there. I don't know what is it about that place, but I like it there. This time around, my parents are coming along with us.
Have a nice weekend and enjoy the long holiday break!
