Neither Here Nor There

That's how I've been feeling lately. There's just way too many things to do back in KL. I feel like I haven't really rested. My mind is everywhere. Although my family have moved to this place for more than 2 years, I still don't really feel like its home. I'm not sure of the routes to get here - in fact, I got lost when I tried to show the taxi driver how to get to our house from MidValley. It was quite embarrassing. I guess I'm not quite used to this part of the city at all.

I seem to feel tired all the time. I think I haven't had proper rest or any 'down time' for that matter. It also doesn't help that I don't have any gym membership here, so I can't really exercise. Everywhere I go, I end up eating more than I should and end up feeling annoyed with myself later.

Don't get me wrong - its actually fun to be back and play with my adorable niece and stuff, but the tiredness is just there..doesn't seem to go away..

Shopping has been awesome though. My favourite jeans brand has been having up to 70% discount so I indulged a little ;)

Kids these days..

It amazes me to what extent teenagers will go to just sound cool. Making jokes about Hitler and his killings is just not funny. When will these kids realise it? I saw a comment on my young cousin's Facebook about how they should break the law once (I think my cousin was referencing some song lyrics) and his friend wrote about how they should kill some Js. How is that cool? Or even funny? Don't children learn respect for others in school anymore?

Indeed, I am offended. When you go to Germany often, you see a lot of sad war-related memorials. Photographs of the Berlin wall; the Holocaust memorial. It's such sad stuff that you just cannot understand how human beings can kill just out of dislike. There was no reason at all for the things that happened there. So I get really offended by people who make such jokes. I know young kids don't know better, but they should. They should make an effort to learn about all these things (I remember learning about them in History class) and respect it. Not make jokes about it...because it was such a terrible thing to do.

Live and Learn

Things are starting to get better lately. The apartment is cleaner, the job is causing less emotional trauma, life is going by as expected - so I can't complain.

After surviving an acidic job situation, I can safely say I am alive. However, the phrase "once bitten twice shy" is indeed true as I am a little paranoid and I have my eyes wide open this time around.

Leaving for Malaysia this coming Sunday, 1 month of vacation with my family. Hopefully everything goes as planned.
