Palabrons un peu!

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

Once again, today I will report on what happened at my workplace. Since yesterday the wife did not appear to be much concentrated in her work. Did not know what happened till today at 1630 hours. Today morning she blamed me for not reminding her that yesterday was due date to pay telecom bills. I replied that a colleague of mine reminded her to pay the bills and that she mentioned she would be doing so in the afternoon. She added that she had to see a sick person.

There is a big flaw in her reasoning. If she knew she had to see that person, she had to be better organised. Well i guess that is called nepotism. And nepotism is to be indulged in the affairs of her in laws without having to care for the affairs of the company. She said that since two days, ” so la tete extra fatiguer”. Her sister’s in law is sick. When i queried what the inlaw in suffering from, she replied “aio mo la tete extra fatiguer” without detailing the ailment of her inlaw. Don’t blame me for being so insensitive but if someone else is in her place, that person would be called by the boss and asked to solve the personal problem before turning up for work. That’s the way things are done in this company, and once again hurray for nepotism!!!

Fushigi Yuugi!

yuugi.jpgTwo high school friends, Yui Hongo  and Miaka Yuki came across a book called The Universe of the four gods when they both decided to go to the National library for their revision to enter the competitive Jonan Academy. As a result of reading the book, they are both transported into the novel’s universe. Inside the novel Miaka discovers that she is the Priestess of Suzaku and destined to gather the seven Celestial Warriors of the god Suzaku in order to summon Suzaku and obtain three wishes. She falls in love with the Celestial Warrior Tamahome, who eventually reciprocates. Miaka’s desire to use a wish to enter the high school of her choice begins to shift towards finding a way to be with Tamahome. Unfortunately, Yui, who is also drawn into the book, is quickly manipulated by the emperor of the land of Kutou into becoming the Priestess of Seiryuu and working against Miaka.

As you must have noticed, it is about love, romance, friendship and drama also. I got hooked on this manga series which is also known as Fushigi Yuugi, a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yuu Watase. I am 3 episodes away of watching the end of the 52. Ok i reckon that i skipped some episodes for some were rather static. Worth watching and laughing guaranteed just like college fou fou fou. After that don’t know what manga to shift to.  Sigh!!!!

New electricity tariffs!

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

This time i could not help but voice out my frustration to the new (and undoubtedly) higher price of electricity which us the end users (that is residential users) need to pay to the CEB.  The article which can be found here suggests means and measures to decrease energy consumption during peak hours. May I make an appeal to the CEB what should the government decrease substantially the tax on solar equipments and accessories we would be glad to bypass the electricity you gratefuly supply to us. Why is that it is us the end users who need to put our hands in our pocket?? Does that mean that from 0800 hrs to 1829hrs, there is no peak in energy usage? Industries use much more energy than us residential users. Do not tell me that during gthe 2 hours, energy consumption by residential users is much more higher that during the 10 hour time slot. If there is strain on the CEB network, then it better reviews its infrastructure so as to accommodate the ever increasing population. And Maurtius is dreaming of 3 millions tourists, with the archaical network of water and energy distribution??? LOL!!!
