Test Times

21 Feb
It’s a trying time for me. What with the moving a few days ago. Been traveling for the past few days from home in sg buloh to work or other places. So far, it is bearable. Without traffic, it would only take 25 minutes to get home from office. it’s only about 25km as well. The fact i go to work after the traffic dissipate a bit and go home after there’s no traffic helps a bit.

There’s so much to complaint though. Yesterday it cost me 350 bucks to touch up the waja. I’m touching up the Waja because I’m in the process of selling it. But there’s more to do with the car. Today there’s suppose to be someone to look at the car today. But he didn’t come because his wife went into labour. And earlier met with Ajak who told me that the guy agent is not trustworthy. Now that’s a bummer.

But what takes the cake is when atie wound down the passanger’s door and the motor of the windows kaput! That makes me want to cry and ask God “what else?”. I know it’s a bad thing’s to say. But i can’t help it.

We won a lot tenders and deliveries these past few weeks and the arrangement for the delivery is a nightmare! There’s not enough money to go around! Had to deal with the suppliers that want to see the money first before sending the items. And we need to deliver soon.

And i can imagine the nightmare again waiting and chasing for the payment. I’m sure that there will those customers that would delay in giving the payment. And at the same time we have to release the payment to our suppliers.

Yesterday Darell (from Malaysiakini) went to condo to look at the unit at Pantai Hillpark. He likes it i guess and wants to move in. But he would need to have streamyx installed first before he would come in. That’s not easy to do. we need to register the phone. And that would need money. And the delay to get him in.

The house in paya jaras still needs to be arranged.

Mama might not be picked for the election this time around. Again.


Moving to Sg. Buloh

Istana TakeshiRumah Paya JarasWe are moving to paya jaras today. It has been days that atie been packing things without my help. Sorry, honey, been busy with works. And you know how bad I am with houseworks…

The family helps minus lutfi. if you know him, his social skills almost comparable to a vermin. But things got speedier with them around.

I’m moving with mixed feelings. It will be a lot further away from office. And i’m not goo at getting up in the morning. But I like the idea that I would have more time traveling. I would have more time to memorise quran, read yassin and hear islamic talks while driving.

The house would be huge. Taking care of it would be nightmare. But it would be nice to stay there. The atmosphere is better, like a kampung environment. Traffic is bad, though when we get to the main road.

I like feeding the fishes in the pond. And later catching them and having them cooked fresh. Nothing beats that. I hope that friends can come over and do things together. It’s a nice place to lepak.

We still have to rent out the condo. My mother mentioned that she didn’t visited us over there. I hope she would visit us at paya jaras.

the move went smoothly. We booked for a 4 tonne lorry but what cane is a 5 tonne lorry! We thought that is more than what we need. But as we put everything inside, there’s not even enough space for one trip! We had to use it again for another trip! We ended up paying 550 bucks for the delivery. All the movers are indian. So we do have issue with communication and their smell, he he.

Yesterday we were at mak long’s klang for her birthday. It’s fun. It’s always nice to be with the families. This is on the side of my father in law. They like to have gatherings that would bring everyone together.

The pak unku mentioned that he’ll be getting 1.7 billion! This is from the treaure chest of the investment my his ancestor, Raja Abdullah. That was probably hundred years ago. This has been topic of discussion between me and pak ungku. He likes it when I asked about the development of the claim to the swiss bank. Apparently Raja Abdullah saved his money over there. He seemed to be a great businessman. The famous yap ah loi was actually his staff if we can take the story to be right.

There are other claims which I hate mention here because it would sound more incredulous and even harder to believe. The money it was said that it would be around in april. I can’t wait. surely there’s more than enough to go around. 1 million each perhaps?

I wonder and wonder. There’s a lot of things that I can use the money for. I would never work again. Bit I would need to invest it. And get some oney every months to cover for the expenses. Then I can continue my study, help my families etc etc. Anything to get odd work is fine with me. Or we could expand the business further. I like a retail industries better. Or manufacturing. We’ve been in the trading business for so long.
