Trees, trees everywhere, but not a shade from the scortching sun. Well guys, this one's for you - part of it of course ;) The whole two acre's worth of rubber trees, shrubs etc. on a slopy land overlooking IIU. Soon, these gravel walk will turn into smooth freshly tarred carriageway and those greens be selectively cleared for your tropical-home getaway. i'm standing here with mom who'll have the unenviable task of urbanizing the plot with an EIA-friendly development. Who knows what the future brings, but plan we will. Plenty of work ahead definitely and mom has already began accumulating stackfull of sketches on the design & concept. We're still scratching our head on many things, access road, utilities, land office matters, $$$, etc. Well, if nothing goes as planned, at least you'd have an orchard filled with buah-buahan tempatan... your favourite durian, manggis, pulasan and rambutan to name a few. Anyway, we're having a go at it, let's see something two or three years from now insyaAllah.

I saw the light, thus I deleted all my previous blogs. Then, i wasn't sure. Crumbs.
I came to the point of asking why blog in the first place? Why burden myself, having to commit for regular updating (for it's not worth blogging if it's not regularly updated) as if i'm not already sweating crazy trying to fulfil a 40-hrs/day committments. Unless I can immigrate to Pluto, earth's 24/7 reality certainly is not sufficient.
But then again, dull personality i'm not. Jack deserves to play too. Whether it's teng-teng, konda kondi or spontaneous rambling over nothing, i WILL make time to chill.
Yes, I see the light now.
I have opinions on almost anything, from nothing to everything. Insecurities over this and that and all that lies inbetween. The very least, blogging is a relief-valve for the crap that accumulates in my braincells. Or maybe during those odd moments, an unpretentious legible version of my train(wrecks) of thought. The very least, it paints a picture of the other/inner side of me. The emotional, spontaneous, extrovert and colorful(ish) side of my being, as opposed to the usually level headed, calculated, introverted and bland nature i masked myself in, in real, un-virtual society.
Though the blogs that may eventually, hopefully, fill this site won't weight much to most, they just might mean something to my dear children. The 'missing colors' to paint a more wholesome portrait of their dad, whom throughout their lives, gave an eclipsed impression of a cold and rhetorical housemaster (all for their own good, so my mind says), and seldom this nutcase and really 'cool' person ;)
Yes, with that in mind, I'd blog on.
