To scream or to cry

The winner takes it all. The loser has to fall. Its simple and its plain...why should I complain.

It is a sad day for me when something that was started from nothing has now come full circle and is being reduced into nothing. Someone has succeeded in driving us to the ground. And I hope he will live to see the day when he will realize that he has made the biggest mistake in his life. As for me....que sera sera.

on leave

Woke up with a nasty headache. Must be the pizza and all that cheese last night. I do have this love hate relationship with cheese. I love it but my body somehow hate it. Well, I suppose that will be my reason for not going to work today. Hence I applied for an emergency leave. Lucky for me I have the nicest h.o.d in my fac. So, here I am trying to have a rest and get things in perspective. However, that is easier said than done. Because right now even on leave I find myself thinking about the book chapter that I have to finish by Dec 15th. So, that got me thinking about ICT and SMEs. And since it is nearing the end of the got me thinking about my lack of achievements during this year....oh well there goes my chances of making the payrise. So, I guess it is not a real 'cuti' afterall....with all those thoughts about work buzzing away in my head!

It is my daughter's 11th birthday today. We usually do not have fancy parties to celebrate birthdays. Usually it is just a few of Sakinah's friends sharing a cake. So, today was no different except that we have two pizzas courtesy of Nora and in addition to the cake we have half a water melon. Sakinah looks happy enough and Shukri looked full enough!

face it

I was trying to find my old friends on facebook when it suddenly hit upon me that I am too old to have friends on facebook. Just as well I suppose. I don't think I am the facebook kind anyway. That is why I am here, blogging. Hi, I am Saloma (or rather my husband calls me Saloma...I don't know why...but he does :) ) I am in my late forties and I am married with three children. I live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and I am currently in the academic line. Being a lecturer in the current academic climate in Malaysia is not a bed of roses. I do feel stressed out most of the time...hence the facebook thing.
