Sleepless in Kuching

It's raining outside. The sound of raindrops serves as music to my ears at this wee hour of the morning. I can't sleep. Blame it on the coke I had at a wedding banquet just now. Or blame it on the stress that I am feeling lately. I suddenly have an urge to clear my messy cupboard top now. Yes, now at 12:10am. What the heck? Is this a symptom of too much stress?

I went for a walk at the small park near my house this afternoon. It was cloudy and so I walked for about 2km. The last time I exercised was months ago, during badminton training. Yeah, have not been exercising for so long. Feel flabby all over. Since my MP3 player broke some months ago, I have not been in much of a mood to go for evening walks. Perhaps I should get myself an MP3 player soon.

Damn, I'm still not sleepy now. I think I'll do some Sudoku on Facebook.

Good night!

Things had not been all good recently. There were many unpredictable happenings that caused utmost distress, frustration and disappoinment.

In terms of health, I had been very tired, suffering from mild insomnia if I were to wake up in the wee hours of the morning or waking up very early every morning despite sleeping late sometimes. Allergy attacks were occasional and mild. Appetite had been non-existence until recently.

In terms of finance, I had spent way too much over the last two months. I had to pay for mistakes which were not mine.

In terms of work, my productivity had been extremely low due to over-worrying and lack of focus.

In terms of entertainment, there were none, except for the occasional Olympics highlights.

I really got to get myself up again soon. There's so much to do yet so little time. I'm praying for God's intervention. He hears :-)

Thank you to St Jude too.

Silence Broken

It's Friday. It's lunch time. It's quiet. There's no one around in the office. I am singing along to the song playing on my computer :-)

Breaking the silence is the only thing that can combat the loneliness of a Friday lunch hour.

Hot Night

Last night, the whole of Kuching had a blackout. I later found out that it wasn't just Kuching. It was the whole of Sarawak.

There were traffic jams everywhere when we tried to get home from church. While having dinner at home, we were drenched in sweat, even though we were having a candlelight dinner.

The electricity came back for about 30 minutes before going off again. The second time lasted close to 3 hours. We were so hot that we had to go out in the car and drive chubby kid around. When the electricity came back in certain places in Kuching, our home was still in darkness. We drove around for about one and a half hours, till it was close to 11pm. Fortunately, the electricity came back when we almost reached home.

Last night made me realized that us city folks are truly lucky to have all the basic facilities. We are so lucky that, at times, we tend to forget and take for granted all the things that are not available to many in the rural areas. It also made me realized that, I cannot survive without all these basic facilities.

Thank God there was electricity during bedtime. I was so tired that I fell asleep immediately when my head touched the pillow, even before chubby kid was asleep.
