New Skin

Like my new skin? I like it very much...very soft and calm and serene.
Had some problem with the template at first, after some searching in the dark, a bit of tinkering here and there and with dSaint's help...Viola! Nice new skin!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Verdict :
Boys - You'll have to pry information from them. They will only answer when asked, and their answers will always be very brief.

Girls - You don't even have to ask, they'll tell you everything and in great details.

Cretinism

Yesterday as we passed by Sedco Light Industrial area, I saw the little boy.

What is so special about this little boy, you may ask. Well, its because he's not what he seems. At a glance, he's like any other ordinary 4 years old kid. You take a closer look, he's still like a 4 years old. On closer inspection, you will notice you're not looking at a 4 years old, you are actually looking at a guy in his 30s..mebbe late thirties, heck he may well be in his forties..who knows.

The 1st time that I've seen this little boy was during my secondary school days. Now I'm already in my thirties and he remains the same, except that he's demented now.
Poor guy.

So being a curious cat, I ask Doc about this lil' guy's condition. What kind of rare disease/condition is he suffering from? Definitely NOT dwarfism cos physically he's like any healthy kids, his limbs length are proportional to his body.

Based on my brief description, good ol' Doc was so kind and now I know that this lil' guy could either be suffering from Congenital Hypothyroidism also known as Cretinism or maybe Hypochondroplasia. Interested to learn more...go Google..I malas explain in details.

And as usual a chat with Doc is always enlightening and entertaining. He always bring out the evil side of you. So now if I ever see the lil' guy again, I'll think of my pinky, and I'll go...eeewwwww.

Excuse me pls, I go flush my head in the toilet 20 times.

Just heard that during the Chinese New Year, a number of the local tycoons spent their CNY in jail.....got caught gambling...hmmm maybe its one of those feng shui thingy...get locked up in the jail house during CNY and throughout the whole year big money come come...:P of course being the "follow tail dog" of the State's Tai Koh can get you Enzo and Porsche to show off during CNY...after that have to get rid of them ASAP else kena investigated.
It's back to work! After a week's holidays, everything is getting back to normal..back to school for the kids and back to work for us adults.

Chinese New Year is the same..its basically fun, fun, fun for the kids what with all these angpows and lions/unicorns/dragon dance. For me, its cook, cook, eat, eat, eat more eating than cooking that is...for some people, well I guess majority of the people here in Sandakan its, gamble, gamble, gamble, bet, bet, bet.

Now that the dusts are settling down, its back to study, study, study, diet, diet, diet and most people will be broke, broke, broke.

It's Valentine's Day today..my horsie and I haven't celebrated Valentine's Day for soo many years. Anyway we treasure any romantic moments whenever and wherever we can get..heck as long as you love each other every day is Valentine's Day!

Okie enough of mumbling..

When I raised my voice and scold the kids, I'm screeching like a mad banshee!
When he raised his voice, he's just making sure the kids heard!

When I grumbled/reprimanded at the kids, I'm nagging from dawn to dusk!
When he grumbled/reprimanded them, he's making sure the kids will become a better person!

MEN!!!!
