M&M Madness - What's Left

Remember the M&M post? Here's what's left....

In less than a month's time.

*Sigh* I seriously need to control my chocolate addiction.

Maero Attack

Those in their late twenties / early thirties, especially the ladies, would remember this one. Maero Attack was broadcasted in Malaysia's local TV sometime in the early 1990s.

As far as I can remember, it's a Japanese drama about this girl who aspires to be a successful volleyball player. Her name was June or something like that, and she could perform these fantastic volleyball smash hits, which I just learned are called spikes.

I remember how my classmates and I used to be so crazy over this show. Volleyball became a very popular sport in schools nationwide, thanks to this show. There were even "gangs" in my school that reenact the scenes from the latest episode each day. The most popular kid became the main character (June), while the rest became the supporting characters. I remember they REALLY went into characters, complete with the dramas, laughters, and cries. And I remember being very sad when the show ended. Oh, the naivety!

I love YouTube for bringing back these memories.

Alone Time

Nowadays, getting some alone time doesn't happen much. I have been enjoying myself so much with family around that I almost forgot how it feels to be alone again.

This long weekend, my family is going to Penang. My family, minus me. Why? Because they made the decision at the last minute and I have to work on Saturday. Besides, they are going there for the food and I have recently lost my sense of taste, no thanks to a horrible bout of flu.

So that means...the entire weekend on my own. At first I was disappointed because I was looking forward to the weekend with family. Then I thought about it some more and figured...this would actually be the first time I am really alone since I came back from Singapore! I have my own car, I could go anywhere I like, anytime I like, without having to wonder what the others are doing, or if they are planning to do anything. It would be JUST like life back in Singapore, except now I have the entire house for myself, and did I mention I have a car?!

Don't get me wrong. I don't yearn for the kind of life I lived in Singapore. I just think this is a chance for me to reflect on myself, on what has been going on for the past 3 months, and maybe what direction I want to take in the future. Maybe a little bit of shopping too.

This is actually gonna be quite cool.
