Happy Monday, You Darn Selangor Folks!

While the population of Selangor (the state that I live in) sleep and laze around in all glory, here I am having to come to work today just for the mere fact that I happen to work in the capital city. It's a public holiday for the folks in Selangor, which for the life of me I don't even know what state holiday it is ... hahaha!

All I know is living in Selangor and working in KL sure sucks big time, especially if you have a best buddy who calls you the first thing in the morning to gloat that he's going to Ikea and that he's all sympathetic and sorry about me having to work while he goes out and have fun! Sympathetic and sorry my foot! Just you wait buddy, you'll get what's coming to you ... LOL!

But on a serious side, have loads of fun buddy and the roads will all be crystal clear for you. There won't be a single car to cause any traffic snarls and the parking bays will all be empty at Ikea ... hahaha! Ok, what was that all about you may ask, well it's a running curse, urrmmm I mean joke we play on each other. Normally the opposite of what we wish each other would happen and wishing him nice empty roads ... well, you get the drift don't ya :D

My buddy and me, what can I say about the two of us. We've know each other for god knows how long, maybe a little too long (LOL!). I was a nice obedient little boy before I met him. I remember it was a cold rainy morning, the winds were blowing wildly, the rain was pouring buckets when I first met him and then my life practically went to hell from there ... hahaha! Ok, the rain and wildly blowing wind parts isn't really true either ... hehehe ...

It was more like a hot sunny day and back when I first met him, seeing as how he was the biggest and toughest looking guy around, I immediately bought him a drink at the stall below our college during break time. Hey, what better way to make sure the biggest and toughest guy in the group was on your side ... hahaha! I suppose that's where our friendship blossomed and has never soured till today. Well, if he keeps on gloating about having fun while I'm slogging away, that may not be the case for long ... hahaha!

I suppose, besides wifey, he and another friend of ours are the only real friends I have. We've knows each other for more than half our lives and at my age, that's really a long time. Though we all have our own commitments and family and seldom hang out much these days but when we get together, it's always the same, fun, fun and more fun.

I suppose the fact that we literally think alike is what cemented our friendship till this very day. Don't get me wrong, we do have our disagreements, but they're normally not personal at all. Mostly he thinks Liverpool is the best team in the world while I think Arsenal would stomp all over Liverpool with their hands tied behind their backs and with slippers on even ... hahaha!

We have this uncanny ability to know what each other is thinking and at times even completing each others thoughts which oftentimes even baffles both my wife and his. But good god, why am I posting about that bum early on a Monday morning, especially when he's at Ikea right now and I have to work? I must be getting more and more insane these days! Either that or Monday is screwing with my mind already! LOL!

Oh and in case you're all wondering, though he'll tell you otherwise, I am the better looking one ... hahahahahaahahahahaha! Sorry buddy, I couldn't resist that!

Happy Monday people.

  21. yes, having to work when others are on holiday sucks big time. Especially when the only difference between you and the other fellow is that you are working on the wrong side of the arch.

    bleergh! I sympathise with you.

    Oh...did you know that next wednesday is a public holiday for us here in Sabah? :)
