Dogged

I finally decided to disobey the stubborn-will I made 5 years ago…..to be frank I had no obsolute reason to why I did that…but tragedies after another have brought the stubborn side of me stronger until now…I was kind of arrogant but it helps avoiding unnecessary trip when it matters the most…I had it 2 years ago but I guess it doesn't count if it occurred in another country (Thailand)… I could still remember the last trip from Johor Bahru to Penang in 2003 arriving early in the morning and thought I will not be doing this for a long period of time...I really did….

You might be asking what’s this about…it’s something silly yet doing it does makes me feel a little ‘in control’ of the ‘easy to be dealt with’ side of me….I could say the same to the ‘I dislike peanut’ yet I’m flexible when I were required to eat peanut (in a small amount tidak lah macam mereka yang suka makan peanut buli makan macam nasi..haha..)

Right! I’m about to take a bus ride from Penang to KL this morning (7:30am, 25th July 2009) for the sake of reuniting with my dearest friend Mr Brandon…Mr Jew who’s temporarily in JB for a 6 months intensive training to achieve his RM10 million wedding budget will be arriving via Subang Airport…me and Mr Jew will be Mr Brandon’s guests this weekend for a ‘sit-drink-talk’ session with Mr Guz who had just returned from UK last month…it’s just a catch-up kind of meeting with Mr Brandon, Mr Guz and others at Mr Brandon’s house….the last time I visited him was a year ago and he did come to Penang last month during Mr Jew’s first return journey from JB of which we had a small party…

The ‘sit-drink-talk’ session had been scheduled to be held on 7th July but it’s impossible for Mr Brandon ‘s schedule at the moment (I really don’t have an idea what he’s up to for being busy until the end of September and that’s something we’re going to catch up with.he.he..) Since the session has been rescheduled to this weekend and was just been informed about it 3 days ago, at first thought I’m definitely not going to make it…instead, Mr Bandon and Mr Jew made it inevitable for me to decline (you know lah when your closest friends combine their pujuk rayu kan..) I then thought of coming by flight…checking up my financial status, accounts, credit cards and living expenses…I was certain that’s possible and achievable but deep down inside, I have this another thing I have been trying to achieve….I’ve been trying to reduce ‘unnecessary expenses’ for couple of months already (buying DVDs is not included in my unnecessary expenses tau..hehe..) thinking at the end of the year I will have more credits than debits….It becomes easier for me to achieve it at the moment because of my working hours which can also be translated into ‘less activities better expenditure’…..thinking of keeping the current spirit, I then decided yesterday after so much of thinking to save as much money possible for this trip by going by bus and return via Subang Airport on Sunday afternoon…..Did I choose happiness over satisfaction?? I know it’s all worth because money is not everything ba…and I love my friends…haha..

Next week…our Deployment Manager and happen to be the Support Team Manager will be in the Penang Office for the first time for a week period… I’ve met him when I was in UK...
