Just don’t go to the office


Another hot, hellishly humid day. The morning seems a bizarre mix of smog and what-ever-nonsense that the local radio idiotic DJ can manage. Monday was good, sadly Tuesday seems twisted. Don’t ask me why, Malaysians are a funny lot.

Vehicles rushing by, people driving in a crazed manner, almost as if eager to hit someone just so to avoid reporting for work. The highway is bloated with cars, everyone eager to go everywhere and nowhere.

Life should not be part of the corporate rat race, there are more important things than rushing aimlessly just to satisfy your fat loud boss. There are too many precious moments that we neglect, on purpose mind you, just to be in that air-con office, or clicking away on your Facebook and pretend you’re working.

You should stop. Take a day off, in fact take a week off. Travel. Life is too short to worry about your gossiping-hungry colleagues or your overbearing moronic boss. Stop the car, and head anywhere » just don’t go to the office.
