sick

Filed under: Daily Life, Miscellaneous — J Martin @ 1:01 am

it’s almost every week i become sick. i don’t know what’s wrong with my body. having fever for every week. although it gave me long rest, i don’t want to be idle for so long. there are many things i wanted to do.

maybe i didn’t have not enough fluid in my body. my body can’t regulate the temperature. my friends always remind me to drink a lot of water. i did, but i guess it wasn’t enough.

the weather in few weeks back was also crazy. there were days when it become too hot, then the next day it become too cold.

today is the third day im being sick this week. yesterday i forced myself to play tennis with my friend. i was hoping that sweating can help me to recover but today im still feeling weak.

i guess i still need another day or two to recover.

it won’t stop me from going anywhere ….

all fired up

Filed under: Daily Life, Miscellaneous — J Martin @ 12:40 am

drank coffee today, twice …

reason? i wanted to be fresh for the whole day to finish my work.

but until midnight i haven’t finish it all. however, i’ve done most of it, about 95% done … quite an achievement actually.

tomorrow im gonna print it all and let my boss check it for the last time.

it’s almost time to surrender …

disturbed

Filed under: Daily Life — J Martin @ 10:54 pm

not much, only a little.

but my concentration’s gone. couldn’t think of anything.

my mind is kinda spent. and exhausted.

did my works since morning until evening without much rest. took short breaks for lunch and washroom. made some talks with friends but not more than 5 minutes.

now im still at the office. chatted with a friend. but i didn’t touch anything about my works. now it’s almost midnight but i haven’t done anything.

im gonna make follow up next morning.

uneasy stomach

Filed under: Daily Life — J Martin @ 10:55 am

food poisoning? perhaps.

spicy food? i don’t think so, because im used to spicy food now. i can even take extreme hot, extra spicy food without having to cram my mouth with ice cubes.

hmmm …

hazy morning

Filed under: Daily Life — J Martin @ 9:31 am

all of sudden the surrounding area is covered with thick haze. or smoke?

the air was all clear hours ago.

someone’s on fire? or something’s on fire? or some-whatever is on fire? or is it hazy season now?

caught again?

Filed under: Daily Life — J Martin @ 11:35 pm

on my way to court this afternoon i met two guards. they were checking on students and vehicles passing by. i couldn’t take another routh coz there’s only one way to the court. i have no other option but to pass them. turning back isn’t an option because i don’t want to skip tennis just because of this ‘little’ matter.

i have expected that the guards will summon me. or at least give me some words or warning regarding my long hair.

to my surprise they didn’t stop me at all. one of the guards even smiled at me. and i smiled back at him. then i went pass.

what a relief …

it’s 4-1, dude …

Filed under: Daily Life — J Martin @ 12:50 am

and i won …

today there’s 3 counts … and i won all of them …

im quite happy, yet sad a bit.

i know im drifting away and im not making any effort to get back. but i don’t care.

im gonna see what’ll happen tomorrow.

im caught, finally …

Filed under: Daily Life — J Martin @ 12:24 am

on my way back to hostel just now, a guard on his bike noticed me in the dark …

our conversation (not in english obviously) …

that guard: hey you … are you a student here?
me: yes …
that guard: which year? … (he assumed me as an undergraduate)
me: postgraduate ..
that guard: (silent for a while, then he spoke) … your hair is too long …
me: umm … (i smiled at him)

and then i just walked away like nothing ever happened … the guard didn’t bother to speak any further.

nobody ever mentioned anything about my hair previously … i’ve met with so many guards before during the days and nobody ever mention about my hair. just now it was in the dark (midnight) yet that particular guard noticed it and mentioned it (for the first time) …

……….. im wondering ….

rambling …

Filed under: Daily Life — J Martin @ 10:58 pm

damn. i couldn’t think of anything to write. i want to update this blog, but i just couldn’t think of anything interesting worthy to read.

so perhaps i’ll just write about today. my life today.

this morning i wake up at around 6.45am. didn’t directly went to shower though coz i felt so terribly lazy. so i decided to sleep another hour. hard though, coz my body’s already awake. after an hour trying back to sleep, i got up and switched on my pc …

after few minutes checking on the news, i took shower and got myself ready to go to office …

9.30am, arrived at office. only few people around. then proceeded to cafeteria to take late breakfast. met some friends there. joined them for a good an hour, plus with talks and laughs …

then after breakfast i went back to the office (correctly called cubicle), switched on my pc (second pc) …

my life today was kinda sucks though … i felt bored, nothing exciting except in the afternoon. i played tennis with my vietnamese friend again … thought we couldn’t play coz the courts were all booked for this whole fc*king week … but i guess the staffs were still in holiday mood so nobody’s around when we went there.

what’s about tomorrow? hopefully tomorrow won’t sucks like today …

bad luck …

Filed under: Daily Life, Sport — J Martin @ 9:07 pm

first, my shoes are gone, somebody took it i don’t know … i always keep it outside of my room because it’s always smelly @-@ … so i guess today someone took interest and ‘elope’ with it …

still decided to go to court though (on slippers) coz my friends wanted to borrow my rackets ….

second, on my way to court, my slippers broke off (is this even the correct word?) … luckily a friend saw me (‘tiny’ luck there) and brought me to court with his car … (he was passing) …

he let me borrow his shoes too … my luck, i thought im gonna just sit there and watch them play …

but i played bad …

sigh …

where’s my luck?

Filed under: Daily Life — J Martin @ 6:36 pm

on schedule and done today – meeting with a VIP in early morning (hell, he’s really an important person) … discussed with him (with my boss and another somebody’s boss) something related to my nearly done work … it was tad too early, started at 8.30am but it’s not a problem actually because i usually already at office at around 7.30am everyday (except weekends) ….

after settled with the meeting, i went back to my cubicle and proceeded with my work … felt like im a superman … done a part within only one or two hours … im slightly amazed with my concentration today …

around 10.30am a friend asked me to help him something about drawing … i calmly refused … usually im very helpful but today i felt like i need to be direct and firm so i just refused … i myself was busy anyway …

went for lunch with a friend (someone else) with his boss and a colleague … chatted with them as if im in par with them … never care ….

after lunch i continued my work …

felt sleepy … decided to get off early … (not that kind of get off) …

arrived at hostel … realised that i have forgotten my room key … called a friend back at office, asked him to check whether my key was there or not … he told me it wasn’t there …. then i tried to call my room mate (he was out and nowhere to be found) … he didn’t answer … with little depression i went to tv room and stayed there for a torturing half an hour …

called another friend … after few missed calls finally he answered, and told me he was in his room … i asked him whether i can stay in his room for a while while i wait for my room mate … he said okay no problem so i stayed there and slept there for an hour …

around 5pm my room mate called in, told me sorry he didn’t notice my msgs and calls … told me he’s gonna be back soon …

waited for another couples of minutes ….

finally after few back-and-forth i get into my room …

tried to sleep … but was unable …

rested anyway in front of my pc …

now waiting for next schedule to come … tennis at 8-10pm, court no 2 … now it’s only 7.15pm …

kfc and tennis …

Filed under: Daily Life — J Martin @ 10:35 pm

went out to town today with a buddy …

first objective – kfc …

second objective – buddy wants to buy something, activates something and talks to someone regarding something …

third objective – shop for some tidbits …

went back after almost three hours at town … couldn’t wait for the bus, we took taxi instead …

reached hostel, buddy asked me to play tennis … i was a bit surprised and amused because it’s still too early … 3pm … nobody’s playing tennis at open court at this time …

i was a bit reluctant but buddy insisted …

so i agreed … went there, felt awkward and still amused because it felt as if we’re crazyheads …

i was kinda slumpy and heavy … couldn’t run fast … i was still full and kinda bloated …

but it was very fun indeed … interesting and exciting …

we stopped at 5pm … someone called me to ask about tennis but i declined, i was already tired … told that someone to ask other friends and use the court i booked … sorry …

took bath, then did something on my pc before i went to bed … really tired … i didn’t take nap for the day even though i woke up very early this morning …

woke up at around 8 …

i guess im still beaming until now …

such a good day … yeahh …

crazy morning …

Filed under: Daily Life — J Martin @ 11:46 am

didn’t feel good last night …

this morning i woke up late at around 7am … well, it’s late for me coz i already used to wake up at 6 or 6.30am every morning ….

washed my clothes after morning shower … then rushed to office at around 8am … forgot to wash my mouth with listerine, i was in such a hurry i only think about going to office as early as i can before anyone else but that’s only what i hoped, coz so many people were there already before me … down one point …

i did brushed my teeth … it’s my habit to wash my mouth with listerine after brushing my teeth, just to make sure my breath won’t stink in the morning but today i didn’t … i totally forgot …

8.20am, went breakfast alone … but was then invited to join a group of girls there at the cafeteria … they were already there before me so they invited me to sit with them … i was a bit reluctant and shy but to make them happy, i agreed …

around 9am, i sat down in front of my pc trying to concentrate and do my works … well, i only managed to do few things before everything went so boring and killed me …

10am – 11am … went around, catching up with friends a.k.a colleagues … after few minutes with them i went back to my cubicle and packed my stuffs … 

11.15am … went back to hostel …

now im sitting here finishing this post …

good morning sleepyheads!

Filed under: Daily Life — J Martin @ 10:14 am

suddenly i become a morning person …

been few days i woke up early (every) in the morning … streak of 7.30+AM on my punch card … now i become one of the earliest birds at the office … and it felt so nice though … earlier than the staffs and  anyone else … it felt so good, it felt like number one …

i don’t mind being alone at the cafeteria … in fact, it felt good having bfast there alone by myself, having a nice cup of hot drink and egg and fried vermicelli while watching people coming up …

catching up with sunrise and everything else making a good morning … it’s almost indescribable … 

it made me real and alive … it’s good having everything in a day from the start …
