I dreamed that I went to a subway station (similar to the abandoned subway station in spiderman 2 2014) to catch a python.

We went to second floor and there were two guys who were killed by the python.

Lastly a guy managed to chop off the head of python, but one of the deceased guy's wife didn't believe that her husband was dead and want to send to hospital n

Suddenly there was one train approaching in subway station. I stopped the train and managed to get help from the train driver to carry the body into the train.

We delivered the body to city centre then transited to a car. We drove towards the city centre but we were actually driving thru the desert.

I was sitting at the back, with the bodies on my right and head of python on my left.

After we had arrived in city centre, we decided to take a lunch. Went to a local Japanese restaurant. There I met an ex colleague at IBM. He is a Thai hence I greeted him in Thai and I spoke some basic Thai with him

Another friend of mine said we've got a job in that city centre. So we left our stuff in the restaurant to sign the offer letter at that company.

There I saw my Australian ex boss in a Volvo. But she pretended that she didn't see me

After we've got the offer letter it started raining. They were running but I chilled and covered my head with offer letter

When we were back to the restaurant it was closed. We had to wait for it to reopen again.

That's when I woke up

If you are a follower of Susan Miller's astrology forecast, Mercury Retrograde will not be a stranger to you. You may read an article here

Believe it or not, today I experienced the first effect of mercury retrograde - I was taken Putra LRT on my way home - it is a driver-less train - suddenly at Masjid Jamek station, it had emergency break, and it didn't open the door to disembark the passengers, then continued to Pasar Seni station.

The train had to terminate at Pasar Seni station (my destination was KL Sentral) and of course - many were frustrated.

But for me, I was not frustrated - I was amazed at the odds and if those stars retrograde can really affect our lives.

Well, it is just a reference - I am going to Taipei for 4 days tomorrow - Hope everything goes well.

Hi my fans, I've been quite quiet for a while.

Let me tell you what I've been doing lately. When I'm free, I will just watch movie or watch human.
Because I'm short, sometimes I need to step on Emoody to stand higher.

I love to say 'Hi' with Colleen to disturb her work.

But most of the time, she didn't need me to distract - in this photo, I saw her chasing & stepping on cockroach.

Women are dangerous.

I've almost finished reading John Robbins' "Healthy at 100"

It is a refreshing read - which gives a totally different view on health: the more sick you are, the more exercise you need to do, along with intake of good nutritious food (good food is not necessarily healthy, hehe)

Two things that I can make them sustain, hopefully:
1) Cook more raw food, instead of processed food
2) do more exercise, and I've opted yoga after work instead of running in the morning

Let's see how it goes. 

I was fortunate to travel to two countries that have close relationship to my life
1) Taiwan: as a descendent of Chinese, it is normal for me to compare with Chinese descendent in Malaysia and in Taiwan

2) Japan: I watch Japanese drama, love Japanese food and use Japanese product. It was dream like for me to be able to travel to Japan

Interestingly, these countries are closely related to each other.

Taiwan was under Japanese colonial for half a century. Till todate, many things in Taiwan are still heavily influenced by Japanese.

The train, they way they being polite, the product they use, they way they promote the products/awarenes, tv shows.... Etc

I immediately realised this on day 1 I stepped into Japan (i went to Taiwan in April, then to Japan in October)

In Taiwan, I went to Taipei, hualien, kaohsiong, taichung, alishan.

In Japan. I went to Osaka, Kobe, Kyoto, nara and Hokkaido.

Nice view in Taiwan... In terms of nature sightseeing in alishan & hualien.

Taipei, taichung and kaohsiong are urban cities (shop till you drop in Taipei and weather in kaohsiong reminds me of KL)

We thought of visiting Taiwan again in few years time but... Malaysia Airline gave us early Christmas gift: we managed to hunt return ticket to Osaka with just... RM189

So, spent another total RM7000 in this trip. All in.

We were pleasantly surprised with all the five places in Japan. Each of them have their own uniqueness.

Osaka: a city with historical places to visit, various food, even more shopping than Taipei

Kobe: peaceful city ... Lots of European style buildings and... Kobe beef.

Kyoto: city of temples. Extra nice if you visit during autumn leaves season.

Nara: city of deers. Where deer > human

Hokkaido: RAMEN AND SEAFOOD! You can't go wrong with those two (er... Skiing wasn't part of the plan so can't comment)

Hokkaido is unique on its own. They have many products produced and sold only in Hokkaido (maybe a marketing strategy, but still feel exclusive) and their airport sells seafood and fresh corn (!!!!??)

When we were back home, my parents stopped mentioning about visiting Taiwan in near future.

My mum kept the Japanese yen asking us when are we going to Japan again.

And the couple spent the next one week revisit the photos taken in Japan.

If you have visited Taiwan, try Japan. You won't be disappointed.

Malaysia is a secular state, and I feel it is best it is maintained so.

Religion is a very personal belief.

I would compare religion as your favorite colour.

There can be a lot of reasons why you love a particular colour, it's a feeling, it's a trust, it's a belief that can make you feel good.

But you can't force others to have the same likings - they have their own preference too.

Even if a person loves blue colour, there are navy blue, dark blue etc (e.g. Protestant and Catholic in Christianity, or Sunni and Shia in Muslim). I can't

So if a country is ruled by religion, especially a country that has multi-religions.. just imagine a person who loves orange colour, and force the whole nation to paint nothing but orange colour for their house, and wear nothing but orange shirt.

If you feel ridiculed - you can expect the exact ridiculous stuff happening in countries ruled by religion.
