not that i'm old but when i was younger, just slightly younger since i'm still young, i used to love driving. i'd jump to every opportunity to drive, even to carrefour. i wouldn't mind driving hefle home in taman kosas, ampang after a night out of cucuk langit + later cross kl again to get home in subang jaya. i even volunteered to pick a group of friends from ttdi, drove up to seremban, a few hours later back to ttdi + home. oh ya! on that trip, i was doing a 160+ when i realised that there was a police patrol car behind me, and i bimboly asked my friends, "what's the speed limit again?". like d'uh! and of course, i was my mom's supir kehormat, from taiping to kota bahru to johor bahru; i've ventured into them terrains. was, since now there's choices: my sister, bibots, + my brother, wawan (his flight schedule is not as tight as before), well, we take turns.
so, have i stressed enough how i used to love driving?
today, i'd drag myself into the car even when the destination is pasaraya viran, which is parallel to mamak bistro.
why am i babbling about driving? i don't know, probably because i'd be driving in a bit, but the motor trade industry is currently not doing well, they had projected a 6% contraction in the industry. recently at a wedding, auntie aishah had told us at the table, there's actually a contraction of 10% and proton is badly hit. of course, bubble of clouds started emerging around me + i went into my little micro + macro economics theorem adventure.
i'm not going to tell the government through this blog what they should or should not do. instead, i'll just continue to positively decipher their policies + spending decisions + programmes. remember the star's warning: "bloggers beware!". well, wierd things are happening within the 'administrative department'. i don't want to end up in tomorrow's headline with evidence that i murdered someone. not that i think that someone might think i'd be a threat to them. come on, a walking oxymoron like myself? if i catwalk past them big gun 1,000 times, they wouldn't even noticed, and that with my plunging neckline.
by the way, don't believe everything you read in the newspapers. an nst reporter once mentioned, two things you can trust in the newspapers are waktu sembahyang + nombor ekor. do you know what the 2005 national library study reported? malaysians read two books a year, less than seven pages a day. if we're not going to improve the statistics, just make sure we maintain the figures. though i said we shouldn't take everything from the newspapers as true, that doesn't mean we should stop reading the newspapers.
researchers from newcastle university found green and black tea help improve your memory. bottled tea such as teh botol, on the other hand, are normally sugar rich. another research from the usa showed adults with hobbies that exercise their brains - such as reading, jigsaw puzzles or chess - are 2.5 times less likely to have alzheimer's disease, while leisure limited to tv watching may increase the risk.
it's time to brew your own tea + sit back to a good read, with shiela majid in the background.
have a good weekend!
