这几天就为遗失了200页的手写工作档案记录烦恼。向客户反映工作进展会因这起事件而须重做延迟时，客户说“Are u kidding me?！！！？”。我无言，这项工作因为我的健康、工作忙碌、大选、社运、迷茫、父亲动手术等原因而耽误了整年，之前我要求停止合约，客户还很有信心我能在2个月内完成工作而作罢。现在真的不知如何解决问题。
When the audiologist told me “Your high pitch hearing is good, you can even hear a pin drop. However you may not able to hear a handsome man invitation for a date or whispering in your ear…………….” I was stunted and the only reaction that time is to look at him with a wry smile
He didn’t noticed my facial expression and continue to show me different styles of aids. I was shocked when he suggested me to wear a pair of hearing aids later. WHAT? HEARING AIDS?!? I rejected politely and promised will visit him in 6 months time.
Diagnoses showed I encounter mild hearing loss at low pitch, and the cause(s) may due to week nerves system. I confirmed the test results with this online check http://www.hearingdirect.com/pages/Hearing-Check.html
Mild loss may result in perceiving speech as soft or muffled, Which will have a detrimental effect when trying to hear in noisy environment. Soft consonants are particularly difficult to hear, which is a frustration as the sound may be heard but remain unintelligible for the listener.
There is currently no medically based cure for age-related loss, so those with Mild Hearing Loss have a choice of continuing to suffer an ever more isolating hearing loss or investigate the use of amplification (example the use of a hearing aid)
After dealing with back pain, thyroid hormone, finger numbness, vision and pressure problems, now is hearing issues. Look like I need an overhaul for all my body parts :-(
Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat KL112 is a successful peaceful assembly.
No thanks to police or Barisan Nasional. It is peoples power that pressurize the draconian government to end violence against assembly participants. It is peoples struggle who takes us to this stage today.
Every dot counts, every voice counts, every person present counts, every vote counts – Rakyat is deciding the country’s future!
And I am proud to be one of the dot that make the history!
When Dr Vijay saw the blood test results, his first reaction is : You are OVER dose. WHY didn’t you come and see me EARLIER?!?
I’ve been complaining about body ache, fingers numbness, joins pain, gained 3kg of weight in 2 weeks, lack of energy to do anything, eyes tearing etc health problems…….. I thought I am just too tired and stressful Never ever cross my mind I have bounced to serious hypothyroidism condition.
Damn, my metabolism is extremely low now. My muscles are breaking down and cells never recovering ………. No wonder I am in pain all the time. I need to stop the neo-mercarzole treatment immediately and hope health conditions will get better in 2-3 weeks time.
For the record, I am experiencing thyroids levels swing twice in the past few months.
Prior to May 2012 – In Hyperthyroidism condition after a year of oral treatment. Decide to go for radioactive treatment.
June 2012 – In Control condition with 10 mg of neo-mercarzole.
July 2012 – Mild Hypothyroidism condition after the radioactive treatment.
Aug 2012 – Stop all the medication after one month of 5 mg of neo-mercarzole adjustment.
Sep 2012 – Condition start swing to Hyperthyroidism. Health problem surfaced..
Oct 2012 – Confirmed Hyperthyroidism condition after a month of body aching etc problem. Start the 20mg neo-mercarzole oral treatment in Mid Oct.
Nov 2012- Condition swing to Hypothyroidism due to too high dosage of neo-mercarzole. Body started to feel very uneasy and put on weight.
10 Dec 2012 – Condition get worst and stop all oral treatment after doctor consultation.
如我早点去见Dr Vijay,可能就不会发生在短短三个月内2次thyroids 荷尔蒙摇摆问题，而搞到现在周身疼痛和长期健康受损了。
我今天也特地为了眼睛长期流眼泪和之前右眼视线受损问题到ISEC见Dr Wong. 他说之前的问题解决不了，retina已有旧疤痕，不能治疗，只是如找到好的眼医师，可通过眼镜来改进视线。眼睛也只是长期干燥而流眼泪，小事一桩，滴眼药水就可，唯一的好消息是，我的左眼没问题。
Reported by Malaysiakini :
Half of companies operating in Malaysia surveyed have reported that they have lost contracts or business to a competitor due to bribery over the past year, according to an international survey.
“This is an extraordinarily high response and may indicate that corruption in the public sector is systemic, and in some areas, institutionalised,” lamented Transparency International-Malaysia president Paul Low yesterday.
“More bold measures must be taken to eliminate entrenched interests and processes that support abuses.”
Low was citing data from the Bribe Payer’s Survey 2011 that surveys companies in 30 countries with a high level of international trade and investment, including 101 companies in Malaysia.
Among other questions, it asks: “During the last 12 months, do you think that your company has failed to win a contract or gain new businesses because a competitor has paid a bribe?”
The survey was one of eight surveys taken into consideration when calculating Malaysia’s Corruption Perception Index 2012, announced yesterday, where the country is ranked at 54th out of 176 – an improvement of six notches from last year’s.
75% of companies say anti-graft drive ineffective
“This is a ‘real’ question – it is not about perception (of corruption) – (the answer is) either ‘yes’ or ‘no’.
“I show you (this data) because this reflects the reality, rather than what people call ‘perception’,” said Low at the press conference when announcing the index.
Low said he was highlighting this to show that corruption has an economic cost.
Of the companies surveyed, 39 in Malaysia answered in the affirmative while another 39 answered in the negative. The remaining 23 said they do not know, or did not answer the question.
Malaysia had the highest proportion of companies – 50 percent – that answered ‘yes’ to the question.
This compares to 47 percent in Indonesia, 36 percent in India, 30 percent in United States, 27 percent in China, 24 percent in Nigeria, 17 percent in United Kingdom, 10 percent in Hong Kong, 9 percent in Singapore – and the lowest – 2 percent in Japan.
The same survey also found that 75 percent of Malaysian companies believe that the government’s anti-corruption efforts in the private sector were ineffective, ranking it fourth.
I was browsing photo albums looking for some information. Found this printed and nicely arranged photo album for our 2004 Nepal trip.
Thanks Young for taken a lot of great photos for us. She is right, I look different back then, as compared to earlier trips with short hair and chubby faces :p
Also realized we stopped taking portraits and started to take a lot of scenery/ “rubbish” in the last few trips. All due to digital camera where we don’t need to bother about developing cost
Although I am sicked and not fit then, but this is one of my favorite trip with great memories… strained in Gurkha, took the small local bus running from curfew, woke up at 4am and found that our flight to see Mt Everest was cancelled due to bad weather, lost in the hill, my special encountered with the local folks, luxury SPA, great views…………..oh all these great memories came back just like yesterday.
After 6 long years, the 3 musketeers will travel again to Myanmar in less than 2 weeks time This time, we will bring a young brother along, haha!
