I have been living in this metropolitan city for almost 10 years. I have been through so many ups and downs..mostly downs ;(..I’ve been living alone but not quite alone. What does it mean? Yes, when you are alone in big city, renting a whole house is definitely out of question. Unless if you earn higher income and with less commitment back at home-town, which is not in my case *sigh*..until now *longer sigh*. When I first came to Kuala Lumpur from my home-town, Kuching, I came with 1 big luggage and no job. I stayed with my bestfriend for free until I found myself a job. I got my first job at a Travel Agency office as a Secretary to GM-Sales & Marketing with RM1,900.00 (USD575.00) per month. It was in September 2005. Life was a struggle but I’m happy because my bestfriend was there with me. She’s my pillar to stay strong and move on. Then she got married. I had to move out to another place. That’s the start of my adventure in meeting new women, young and old, conservative and not so conservative, etc. as my house mates.
I had encountered wonderful women as my house-mates as well as the worst kind of women. Some of my house-mates were by my choice..office colleagues or friends that we agreed to rent together in a house with another strangers. There were more bad than good, well, in my case. This friend when knowing her as a colleague, was a polite, fun and nice character. Then, when I started to live with her, renting a room (separate room) with a landlady, the truth about came out less than 3 months of staying together. A dirty, lazy and selfish woman. On the outside, she acted innocent, wearing a scarf on her head, speaking in soft manner, but God Almighty, she was really a fucking diva and act like a princess. I loathed that attitude so much! At first, colleagues at the office saying that I was a jealous chubby woman of this sexy girl wearing tight-fitting clothes and vagina shape showing fitted pants to the office while wearing head-scarf. But, yes, God is GREAT, in the end they all know who she is. Honestly, I don’t give a shit because when that happened, I had left the company haha..well, that’s the last time I’m gonna have a friend or office colleague as my house-mate! Lesson learned well.
But then living with a strangers can also be a nightmare. Not your worst nightmare, but still a nightmare nevertheless. As long as the house-mates are selfish, ignorant, greedy, loud, noisy, and acting they own the house, it’s still a problem to live with. Yes, that’s what I’m encountering right now. It does stress me up for awhile but in the end, I just let go and avoid any confrontation as long as they don’t crossing that house-mates boundaries. The other house-mates are complaining..mildly but yeah, in the end, they also just like me..just let them be selfish to everything in the house, ignorant to us that prefer quiet and easy-going house environment, as long as they don’t disturb our peacefulness in our room. But the most I hate right now is the noise, every night when I’m already in bed sleeping, these two room-mates somehow prefer to take late night shower, one by one..20-30 mins each. Because our room connected to a toilet/shower room, the noise is sometimes unbearable. Why the fuck they didn’t take their stupid shower after home from work or at least before 10pm, like other people do! Pppfffff.. Yes, this is selfish! This is ignorant! ..because they are inconsiderate of other people. I always wonder if both of them have hearing problem because they like to close the doors in the house very loud like looking for a fight or something! It’s annoying and sometimes makes me angry. I purposely shut the door as hard or harder just to make my point how annoying it was. They know if I’m angry, I will curse like bitches and they don’t dare to ask me because they know they started it. And funny thing was, they are the one who put up stickers saying ‘please close the door quietly’..irony? Yes, indeed…
O well, in the end, I just let it go. Rather than burden myself of hating and being angry, lets just focus on myself and my wellness. Lets just avoid this kind of people. It makes life much easier. Now, when I’m off to bed, I just put on my earphone and listen to soothing songs by my bias or the sounds of mellow music.
Life is not over by this. It’s a journey for my own betterment. Lets hope I will find a worthy house-mates in the future, if I’m still single, that is. *cries soundly in heart*yes, I’m lonely. sighhhhhh*
I live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Singapore is our nearest neighbor but I have never been there before. I always wanted to visit the city of lion but never had a chance. I was actually to go to Seoul for a meeting but it was cancelled last minute. As an alternative new date given, Singapore was chosen as the next venue for the same meeting. So that’s how I finally step my foot into Singapore..Ha..
Although it was a short 2 days meeting in Singapore, I joined our Sales team to the famous Singapore zoo for a site inspection and try out their incentive package. It was a full dinner on tram, on night safari. The food was marvellous. Seen most of the animals. Singapore zoo has quite a collection of exotic animals, families of lions, tigers, wild buffalo, several family species of boars, deers, giraffe and so on. The safari took about 1 hour 30 minute journey. The last program was the night show at the small amphitheatre. Such a great show by those cute fluffy animal (minus the snake, of course) huhu…
The next day was filled with industry road show and meeting before going off to airport the day after and back to Kuala Lumpur. But that short time, I had wonderful time staying at Marina Bay Sands. Such a gorgeous hotel. Sadly, I don’t have enough time to explore the place. Maybe next time 🙂
My only complaint was the taxi driver. I am the unfortunate one who got scammed by the Premier taxi that said he gave me same fare as normal taxi but when reached airport, he charged the meter as Premier. Worst, he purposely ‘lost’ his way to Air Asia terminal and had to U-turn. Talking big about his business with 10 speedboats to carry Indonesian to Batam and bad-mouthing Johor (the nearest Malaysia state to Singapore) so freely. Well, since I’m rushing to catch my flight at 7.30am and not in a good mood and don’t want to argue since I’m still in his country, I just keep mum…but my heart, only God knows the ‘sensored’ words I scream hahaha..
Elle Japan 2013 Nov.
At the seaside 2-hour trip from Seoul.
JaeJoong has been composing for his album till late at night (before the interview). He’s been sleeping on the way here and just woke up after noon time. Appearing at the site filled with the Korean language, he said in Japanese ‘Konichiwa’ and I replied without thinking in Japanese, ‘Konichiwa’. It’s been long since JaeJoong last spoke Japanese.
I’ve asked JaeJoong to bring a book he’s recently been reading and what he brought here was Richard Carlson’s ‘What About the Big Stuff’. (It’s a gift from fans. It’s difficult to explain what the contents are. It’s about life, but not to describe life as heavy/burdensome. With the book as the starting point, we started out photo shoot. The interview was done all in Japanese, as requested by JaeJoong.
