Mounting evidence that I’m overweight

Man, this is sounds like a script for a bad cartoon. My chair broke when I sat on it just now.
The screws holding the chair snapped on BOTH sides. Someone up there is telling me I need to go on
a diet. That, or I just sat on the chair too hard. =D

The Chair. Red circles showing where the screws gave way.

Close up of the chair. You can see where it snapped.

Monash University Engineering Ball

Read this: Disease alert for
[The Age]

It seems that two people who went to the Engineering Ball last week got meningococcal disease
which is a form of meningitis [WebMD]. It’s curious
that meningitis is so prevalent in Australia and NZ but I’ve hardly ever heard about it in
Malaysia. It seems that all outdoor hot springs here have warnings not to submerse your head
into the water to avoid getting meningitis. Anyway if you’re too lazy to click on the WebMD
link, meningitis is an infection of the brain which can be fatal. Apparently the bacterial form
is more dangerous than the viral one.

It’s what’s for dinner…

Oh, forgot to tell you all about something I got at Bi Lo today.

I’m thinking about frying it with some eggs and eating it for dinner. Look at the price, it’s
only A$1.37 for three pieces of grey matter. Mmmm…

The Interpretation of Dreams

I had an REM heavy sleep last night. Lots of weird ass dreams, the only one of which I remember
is aiming my webcam down at the mound. There was a lunch thing going on, which two tables and
people sitting around like the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. They were beckoning me to come down and join
them but I said I have too much stuff to do so I couldn’t. Hmm…this must be the manifestation of
my guilt for not fixing the webcam this weekend as promised. =D

Deja Vu

Hmm, sometimes I just get this weird feeling of deja vu. I was loading up this page in my HTML
editor when I felt that I’ve done this before. It made me think of something bad – my recurring
dreams, of which I have three.

Dream #1: Starts with me looking out the window of my old place in Kuching and seeing this huge
mountain with an old library made of large books in the middle. Its literally made of large books,
like one large book for each of the sides and the top. I am always 7 in my dreams. There was an old
custodian inside who told me I need to walk up to the building at the summit for some reason. Now
this was night time, and there was no one around, except for the custodian and he disappeared after
I talked to him too. And until today, I still don’t know what’s on the summit, I can’t even see the
summit structure in my dreams.

Dream #2: I got locked in the Emporium (?) in Kuching when they closed for the night, you know,
that old place opposite the MAS building in town. I am feeling scared coz I was around 7 in my
dream and I had to to walk up to the highest floor where they keep the toys. I just HAD to, it was
a compulsion and I can’t stop the flow, even though I KNOW what’s up there and it’s not something I
want to see. My feet just started walking up and I rounded the last flight of stairs and the door
was open and I can see it, and I always wake up then. The thing that was waiting for me is a large
doll, the ones little girls play with, with blond hair, eyes that shuts when you put them down, etc
but this one was alive and laughing, a creepy laugh. And it wasn’t in it’s package, it was just
sitting there on the shelf.

Dream #3: I am in my Kuching place and this one was when I was 7 too. I kept an aging formula
in the fridge, you’ve seen this stuff in movies, its the type that makes you age instantaneously
until death once you drink it. I walked into the kitchen, and there I saw my mom chopping meat and
my mom was old, really old with a beard and stuff. I asked her in horror, did you drink that stuff
in the fridge? And she replied yeah, there is nothing that can be done now. She said she was going
to wash some clothes and when I followed her into the bathroom I saw only her hand there, it was
chopped off but in the dream I didn’t think that someone had chopped of her hand but that she’s
gone and only her hand is left.

Frankly, all three of the dreams disturbs me. There are two things in common in those dreams,
I’m always around 7 years old and its always in Kuching.
