Urghhh...women drivers!!!

I read an article in The Star yesterday about Malaysians being bad drivers, and almost 70% of accidents on Malaysian roads are caused by human errors.

Since I started driving 15 years ago, I've been hearing chauvinistic comments from male friends, saying that majority of bad drivers in our country are women. I don't know how it really was back in those days, perhaps there was some truth. I was a bad driver myself when I was in my early 20s. I was involved in a number of very silly accidents. Like, hitting into the wall when I was parking rear end first. I felt soooo stupid.

Once I was parking, and I went over a block of stone which is an indicator that you've exceeded the barrier. The car registration plate came off as a result. I was kinda scared The Ex-Hubby would be really mad at me so I glued the damn thang back to the car. He didn't notice at all, thank God! Then a few days after, he did exactly the same thing I did, and it came off. Of course, I didn't tell him that the damn thang had come off before, hehehe....

After four silly accidents, The Ex-Hubby forbade me from driving for years, and convinced me that I was such a hopeless driver. I developed a phobia of driving, and a car felt like a mean machine to me. I started driving again four or five years ago, when he left me. It was a do or die situation for me, as nobody's going to drive me around. I picked up the courage to go out on the road again. Only this time, not only am I a much better driver, I'm a good driver. I'm now in tuned with the machine when I drive, thanks to go-kart racing. Even my car has a name :)

Today, I beg to differ with my male chauvinist friends and The Ex-Hubby. Today, the playing field has indeed leveled, there are as many bad male drivers around, and as many good women drivers too!

After reading this hilarious e-mail from another male friend, I'm sure you would agree with me why I said that. Hehehe, here's what he wrote:


I'm writing this because I think drivers should be more careful.

This morning on my way to work, I looked over to my left and could you believe it. There was a woman in a brand new Camry doing 90km/h with her face up next to her rear view mirror putting on her eyeliner!

I looked away for a couple seconds and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane, still working on that makeup.

Now, as a man I don't scare easily.

But this woman and her reckless driving scared me so much; I dropped my electric shaver, which knocked the roti chanai out of my other hand. In all the confusion of trying to straighten out the car using my knees against the steering wheel, it knocked my cellphone away from my ear which fell into the teh tarik between my legs, splashed and burned Big Jim and the Twins, ruined the damn phone, soaked my trousers, and disconnected an important call.

Urghhh... women drivers!!!

His Diary vs Her Diary


Saturday night I thought he was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a bar to have a drink. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment.

Conversation wasn't flowing so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk, he agreed but he kept quiet and absent. I asked him what was wrong he said nothing. I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said it had nothing to do with me and not to worry. On the way home I told him that I loved him, he simply smiled and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior; I don't know why he didn't say I love you too.

When we got home I felt as if had lost him, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there and watched T.V. He seemed distant and absent. Finally I decided to go to bed, about 10 minutes later he came to bed and to my surprise he responded to my caress and we made love, but I still felt that he was distracted and his thoughts were somewhere else.

I decided that I could not take it anymore so I decided to confront him with the situation but he had fallen asleep. I started crying and cried until I too fell asleep I don't know what to do I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.


Today Italy lost, but at least I got laid.

Neh, owh, heh, eair, eh...

One bundle of joy in my life is Luth, a handsome face with the sweetest smile, big bright eyes that explore your soul, a beautiful mind with a great deal of intelligence in his grey matters and the excited noises he makes when I play with him. Yes, it was love at first sight indeed, with this new man in my life :)

Hehehe...he is Luth, my cute little nephew, who is named after a prophet.

But the only thing that frustrates me is that I don't understand a thing of what he is saying...for some months, all he said was neh, owh, heh, eair, eh...

So you can imagine my excitement when I come across an amazing story on Oprah.com, about a gifted woman who teaches us how to listen to the secret language of babies.

Now I can try to communicate with Luth and look a tad bit more intelligent to my little precious one. He looks a little perplexed at my attempt to talk to him. Hehehe he must think his aunt is nuts making those funny faces at him :)

Listen to the secret language of babies!

For millions of sleep-deprived mothers around the world, this woman's findings could be a miracle! Priscilla Dunstan, a mom from Australia with a special gift, says she's unlocked the secret language of babies.

After testing her baby language theory on more than 1,000 infants around the world, Priscilla says there are five words that all babies 0–3 months old say—regardless of race and culture:

Neh="I'm hungry"
Owh="I'm sleepy"
Heh="I'm experiencing discomfort"
Eair="I have lower gas"
Eh="I need to burp"

The ultimate sex diet?

I read in Oprah.com about Kristie Alley's phenomenal weight loss. She claims that having great sex makes her shed off the fat and keeps her in good shape. I mean like, wow! Hehe it's no wonder she calls it her "ultimate sex diet".

After many months of sweat and tears (ah-ha! I'm pretty sure), Kirstie Alley is ready to take the stage in a sexy swimsuit on the Oprah Winfrey Show for the whole world to see!

Although Fly.fm guys were making fun of her still looking fat in those bikini, especially those enormous thighs, I think she looks good. Relatively good. A little too voluptious still, but georgeous nevertheless.

Hmmm but there's no way I'm gonna be able to use Kristie's secret weight loss weapon without breaking my vow of celibacy. I'm not breaking my promise to myself to remain celibate until I remarry. Not getting married anytime soon. Arrrgghhh!

But I guess I am on a "sex diet" of sort too. It's not called the "ultimate sex diet" though. It's called "the ultimately NO SEX diet" muahaha...gotcha!

Haha and you won't see me parading in a bikini either :)

Go away, cholestrol!

I was reading beliefnet.com about aging and high cholestrol level today. The article says the best "treatment" to reducing our cholestrol level is to change our lifestyle to a healthier one. I surely don't want to end up like this lady in the picture...

In my last quarterly cholestrol test at the hospital, I think mine was 6.0, it busted the optimum healthy level of 5.4. That was scary, I thought only old people, or really obese people have high cholestrol. But it was better than early this year where it reached 8.0 and the specialist doctor put me on Victoryn, a cholestrol reducing medication. It must have worked because my cholestrol level improved to a more manageable level. But I still have a lot of work to do before I can be very fit and healthy, back to the fitness level of my mountain climbing and extreme sports days.


I thought of sharing with you these tips I read, on changing our lifestyle to reduce our chance of having high cholesterol. Gaya hidup sihat, seperti yang disarankan oleh Kerajaan Malaysia. I need these, hehe :)

Lifestyle Changes

* Maintain a healthy weight
* If you are overweight, lose weight (mua?)
* Limit the amount of fat and cholesterol you eat (no lamb chops?)
* Eat a healthful diet (*)
* Eat a diet high in fiber (rabbit food....)
* Begin a safe exercise program recommended by your doctor
* Increase physical activity in your daily life, as recommended by your doctor
* Exercise regularly (darn!)
* Don't smoke. If you smoke, quit (fortunately, I'm an environmentalist)
* Limit the amount of alcohol you drink (**) (fortunately, I'm a teetotaler)

(*) one that is low in saturated fat and rich in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.

(**) Moderate alcohol intake is no more than 2 drinks per day for men and 1 drink per day for women.

At this age...

One author and poet in her wishful thinking wrote, "Age is all imagination. Ignore the years and they'll ignore you."

How nice eh! I would very much like to subscribe to the wishful thinking. But you know what, inside every older person there must be a younger person wondering, "what happened?" I don't know about you but I think life passes very quickly and before I know it, I am 36. Soon I will be 40 before I even realise it!

What have I been doing with my life...

I'm thinking, let's us just ponder for a few minutes on what life is all about, why we are living, and what we really want in life. Other than what we're doing now, is there anything else you wish you were doing at this age?
