I Saw A Ghost!!!

I have started spring cleaning a week ago, getting ready for Christmas and Chinese New Year 2009.
I took 2 and a half month for cleaning up last year when I don't have a part time maid to help clean my window, grill, fans, curtain, cushion, garden etc. Now with a part time maid, I guess I will need about a month to complete the cleaning and start planning for other thing for my new year.
How I wish I could take leave for one month and concentrate on my cleaning. Any way that shouldn't be a problem. I just have to adjust a little of my working hours.
I woke up at 5.30 am today with my mind still half dreamy I started cleaning up. With my blur, blur eyes I looked out of my kitchen window toward my neighbour's house from my kitchen and guess what I see ? A......... G..G.GHOST!!!!
Don't believe? Off course is hard to make all of you believe if there is no proof, so I quickly took out my camera and take a picture of the ghost with face so pale, hair and tongue so long.
Here is the picture to proooof I didn't lie at all!

Ooooops! too dark to see anything, lets try again :

See that? Not clear? Then take a look at the next picture!

Sorry, that was just a black sunshade cap and a broom stick. I think I need a pair of glasses or I have been thinking too much!

Hehehe, so embarrassing. *blush*blush*

George Carlin

Received the following message via email :

Isn't it amazing that George Carlin - comedian of the 70's and 80's - could write something so very eloquent...and so very appropriate.

A Message by George Carlin :

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways , but narrower viewpoints.

We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less.

We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time.

We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgement, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life.

We've added years to life not life to years.

We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbour.

We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've c! leaned u p the air, but polluted the soul.

We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.

We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less.

We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships.

These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.

These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom.

A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it.

A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

If you don't send this to other people....Who cares?

Georg! e Carlin

Aunty Duck Talking To Uncle Chicken

Streamyx bill has increased from RM77.00 to RM88.00 per month? I am not sure!

The bill I received clearly stated that I have to pay RM165.00 and apart from the bill I also received a notification of late billing for internets service but did not mentioned about the increased. So I supposed the bill is for 2 months and wrongly charged.

Unwilling to pay for extra RM11.00, I called the streamyx call centre for clarification.


Call Centre (CC) : Good evening, I am xxxx, may I help you?

Mol : Good evening. I received a streamyx bill dated 28 Oct. and a notification about late billing, but the charges stated in the bill is wrong. It should be RM154.00 (RM77 + RM77) but the bill is RM165 (RM77.00 + RM88.00). Why is that so?

CC : Ok madam, what you received is a sample only.

Mol : Do you mean I can ignore the bill and don't have to pay according to the bill?

CC : No madam, you have to pay the bill in full ie RM165.00.

Mol : But you are charging me RM11.00 extra. Why is that so?

CC : Madam, can you read the letter we send to you about late billing.

Mol : Yes. But now what I am asking you is, why am I being charged extra RM11.00 in the bill? The letter didn't mention anything about the extra charges at all.

CC : Madam, that is just a sample only.

Mol : *?!?!! Sample????*
Do you mean I don't have to pay according to the bill? (Same question asked twice, what is happening to me? :(:( .

CC : No Madam, you have to pay RM165.00. You are now paying in advance for the service. You may go to any TM centre for enquiry about the late billing.

Mol : *??? advance payment!!!!* No problem I will be as frustrated as I am now if I were to go to the TM centre. Thank you for trying. I will pay accordingly and if there is any extra charges please refund to me later, is that alright?

Actually the staff could have just tell me that the charges for streamyx has increased from October 08 onward and to visit the TM centre for further clarification.

If my manglish (Mandarin + English) is also complicating you like the above, please don't hesitate to tell me. Dont laugh alone, just put up a comment and we can laugh together, hahahahahah!!!! no problem at all, ok!!!
Duck : Quak quak quak...........
Chicken : ??!!!!!??? .. kok...kok...kokoooo.........
Duck : ???!!!!????
