Question first : Do I or do I not upgrade my WP? I am still at 1.5.2.
Somewhere along, within the last few days, I feel that my regular gang of bloggers seem to be moving on a sombre mood.
9394 went on hiatus. LinPeh went on DIY post. Wingz lagi terror, he just CnP. Then, AhPek lost his pantun. Helen. I always expect to laugh but lately, she got me thinking and pondering about crying pulak. SiaoCharBo whom I just started reading also on serious mood. MsLengLui also a new blogger I just discovered also mentioned this (lack of humour).
As for sifu, his blog is my daily read but sometimes, it can be pretty ‘chim’.
So, there. I WANT TO FIND SOMETHING TO READ THAT MAKES ME LAUGH!
Is it the 30 sen increase? Is it the impending recession? Is it the bird flu? Or the HMFD? Or what?
I remember the last two recession periods. One somewhere in 1986 or thereabout. Supermarkets closed down, causing poor, old uncles struggling with uncollected debts. I was in the legal firm working OT issuing legal bills to poor uncles to sue the supermarkets. (which I later found out that my lawyer boss did not pay me my EPF, KNN!)
And I managed to find a job as a secretary where there are 74 shorlisted candidates who were much more qualified and experienced than me. Then, somewhere in 1998 when I was about to leave my job, another recession hit. My ex-boss told me that I would starved if my family goes on single-income. I had three kids then. So, fearing for starvation, I bought RM1 worth of ikan kembong and limited our daily meals expenditure to RM5 only! Serious!
So, if you tell me that our country is doom. And that, we are all going to be dead, it will not scare me too much. Because back then, things were pretty bad. No one went to overseas for holidays. Factories closed down. All the retail outlets were either closed or the few employess ‘ta woo ying’ (beat flies). During Chinese New Year, the supermarkets were deserted. We only had money to buy new underwears.
Let’s bounce and bounce, float and float? I suppose life comes with cycles like these? Good times, bad times.
But let’s make our blogs the sunshine admist the gloom! Come, come, say cheese! *Passing sunshine around to everyone. Smiles!!!!!
