Say what you will about cats, but they’re awesome. With their quick reflexes, swift agility, graceful poise and keenly honed survival instincts, cats have evolved the tools necessary to co-exist with us in the modern world, one full of dangers both natural and man-made.

While cats have demonstrated time and again their supernatural ability to skillfully avert death at the last minute, I’ve noticed that we humans actually take what cats can do for granted.

I forgot to let you know that I’m assigned to a client in Johor for the next two weeks. I’ve just checked into Nouvelle Hotel and the room reminds me of 360xpress Hotel in Kuching, although the one here is more spacious and less strategically located. The problem is, being a hotel converted from shop-house lots, my room is waaaaay in the back, away from the two colleagues with whom I will be working. Lord help me if I ever get drunk, I wouldn’t be able to find my room at all.

More updates forthcoming, so don’t you worry!

Oldies but Goodies

Jason* is a senior at the company for which I work. Today, as we were walking out to lunch, he shared with me a startling fact: he has been using his current Nokia phone since 2005! He hasn’t changed it because “it hasn’t died yet – why waste a perfectly good phone?”

I can identify with that though; I used a Nokia 1112 for almost 5 years before I decided to trade in my ex [Note: Why wouldn’t I call it that? All the memories.. *sigh*] for my current one, a shiny red-and-black Nokia 5130 XpressMusic (which still has a proper keypad with buttons and all, much to the chagrin of my mostly iPhone-using colleagues).

There’s just something to be said about old phone models though; they’re a lot more reliable and sturdy than current editions hot on everyone’s wishlist! Here’s a list of the things I miss most about my ex, the good ol’ Nokia 1112: Continue reading
