Bringing an egg down to the bottom of the ocean isn’t new. But smashing it on someone’s face is something new.
It was roughly 10am in the morning. There was no one around except for me. I walking slowly up these flight of stairs at a place which is much like an open air market. The place seems a little run down. I’m definitely in a small town. I continued walking towards my car which somehow is on the 1st floor.
As I reached the 1st floor. There was this guy who just walked passed me. He was staring at me and my backpack. Somehow, my backpack seems pretty valuable and I could tell that the guy has intention to rob me. As I was noticing everything that is happening. Another guy with mustache was walking towards our direction too. He too saw my backpack and I could see it in his eyes that he wanted to have a piece of my backpack.
This two random strangers looked at each other and decided to gang up and rob me. I couldn’t figure out what I was carrying in my backpack or what was it in the first place but I knew badly that I didn’t want to lose it at all cost. I quickly told them “hey hey hey… don’t rob me. I’ll give you cash!” I took out my wallet and grab all the cash I have in it. It was a miserable 40+ worth of cash only. The two guys grabbed the cash looked at me and looked at each other in a puzzling manner. I could see that they are debating if they are going to let me go or grab my backpack.
Without giving them any chance to think twice, I quickly ran towards my car which didn’t seem far away. I locked the doors and started driving off thinking to myself, how lucky I was to escaped unscathed.
I woke up from my dreams after that part without knowing what was the valuable thing in my backpack that I didn’t want to lose.
The events in this dream definitely reflected part of my life at this point. I believe it’s a metaphor of what has been robbed from me in my life and I was holding onto something so valuable that I didn’t want to lose and somehow I managed to escape unscathed.
This video makes me wonder. Could this be the ultimate reason to 40 year old virgins? Of course I don’t expect all the woman to be starting to kill off everyone but the video does make a bit of sense. Minus the killing part is ultimately the kind of woman who just can’t stand anything. To set in their own world and ways to even want to accept anything else.
I guess some people are just not cut to be in a relationship at all.
Shortly after God removed the tree of life and the tree of wisdom, God decided to make a super fruit for man kind. A fruit where it contains –
- Increase Immunity
- Cure Anemia
- Improve Bone Health
- Improve Sleep quality
- Maintain Blood pressure
- Fight Free radicals
- Improves Digestion
- Slow the Aging effect
- Protect from cancer
After carefully stuffing all the 8 benefits into one fruit, God immediately realized that this fruit might just be too good and He simply couldn’t risk the entire Earth’s population forgo all the other available fruits on Earth and just eat this super fruit He has just made.
But God loves us. He loves us so much that He decided to keep this super fruit for us. God being God, came up with a plan. He would then make the meat of the fruit soft with different shades of yellow to orange when it ripens. Like all fruits it will have a shell with different compartments to store the meat in case part of the fruit goes bad, you will still be able to eat the other half. God was pleased with the super fruit he has just created. He decided that this fruit will now grow on trees, big tall trees with sturdy branches to hold the weight of the fruit.
Upon planting it, there was a problem. Tens of thousands of species on Earth flock towards this tree. Looks like God did make a fruit that is more desirable than any other. In an instant, the shell quickly hardens up with spikes starting to emerge from the hardened shell. The hardened shell and strong, sharp spikes are to ward off most of the animals. With the new design of the super fruit. God immediately implemented a system where by nature, this spiky fruit will not drop on anyone’s head. Since then, only a few selected animals who knew how great this super fruit is and would still try to eat it.
With abundance of health benefits stuff into one fruit. It is almost unavoidable that this fruit will be too heaty for man kind. God saw that this was a way of preventing humans over eating it and decided to keep it as it is. Another notable change was the strong unique smell that is now emitting from the meat of the fruit. Some say God did this to further prevent animals from eating it, others say God did it so only the wiser ones gets the benefit. Until today, it is still uncertain why the smell was there in the first place. A smell so powerful it could stay on your breath for hours after eating it.
On behalf of man kind, I thank you God for creating this fruit worthy to be the king of fruits!
I recently read an article stating the health benefits of durian and that inspired me to write a fictional story above. Below you will find the elaborated points of the 8 health benefits stated above. Durian is truly a great fruit with those 8 amazing health benefits squeeze into one fruit. No wonder I always feel super happy after eating durian. It could chase away all my blues. And not to mention, I must’ve gotten my youthful looks from eating durian!
Immunity: Durian fruit contains high amounts of Vitamin C. It provides about 33% of the RDA of the daily requirement of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is powerful antioxidants that protect against infectious free radicals. High Vitamin C is required to increase immune system function. Thus it provides immunity towards common disease like cold and flu. It is also effective to protect from infections.
Anemia: Durian fruits contain high amount of folate. Folate is required for the production of new RBC cell. So it stimulates production of new blood that improves the functionality of the body and provides a new energy flow. Also it is beneficial to anemia patient those who suffer from low RBC. So durian fruit can be used to cure and prevent anemia. Also it contains copper and iron that increase the production blood.
Bone Health: Durian fruit contains good amount of calcium that improves bone density and promotes healthy bones. Also it contains high amount of potassium. Potassium is required for development of healthy bone. Potassium balances sodium and thus reduces the loss of calcium through kidney. So potassium directly increases capacity of the body to absorb calcium. Thus it improves bone health and prevents osteoporosis.
Improve Sleep: Durian fruit contains amino acids known as Tryptophan a natural sleeping chemical. Tryptophan is required to metabolize serotonin and melatonin. These both Neuro-chemicals are beneficial in improving mood. So it is effective to relieve stress and headache. Along with it these Neuro-chemicals promotes deep and healthy sleep. So it is effective to cure sleeping problem and depression.
Maintain Blood Pressure: Durian fruit contains high amounts of potassium. Potassium is required to maintain sodium level. Also high potassium is required to maintain fluid level i.e. to balance electrolyte. Thus it helps to maintain high blood pressure and it reduces the risk of stroke or heart attack.
Fight Free radicals: Durian fruit contains good amount of antioxidants. It contains Vitamin B-complex, C and E. These antioxidants are important nutrients that make durian fruit healthy. Antioxidants are required to protect the body from oxidative stress. High oxidative stress is caused due to pollution and UV radiation. This process creates free radicals from oxygen molecules. This free radical destroys normal cell DNA and change the function of cells to form cancer cells. But antioxidants neutralize these free radicals and acts as a shield to protect cells from damage. So durian fruit protects from cancer.
Improve Digestion: Durian fruit contains fiber which provides roughage and improves digestion. Thus it is effective to prevent constipation.
Ageing: Durian fruit contains good amount of antioxidants which protects skin from free radicals. Ageing is a slow process that starts with increase with age. But, free radicals have stimulated this ageing process at early age. Antioxidants neutralize these free radicals and protect from early ageing and wrinkles. It also nourishes skin for clear and smooth skin

I was standing in front of the conveyor belt waiting for my luggage in Miri airport. Always feels good to be home.
This trip was made for 2 main purposes, a wedding and a dive trip. It’s a short 2 days 2 nights trip because I had to come back to KL for another wedding. Would have bail that KL wedding but no, ain’t gonna let the bride give me shit till the day I die.
Arrived early for the wedding to beat the parking shortage.
This wedding ain’t no typical Chinese restaurant wedding. It’s held in Ming Cafe itself! If I didn’t have to dive the next morning. I would go crazy on the yummy pork buffet line. Did a speech for the lovely couple in the picture and kinda made the groom teared a little. Hope I didn’t say anything to upset him. Few friends and I had to go slow on drinks and leave before the clock strikes 12. Great food, great company, great laughter, great wedding! Congrats again to Alex & Agnes.
Kolok mee for breakfast before the dive.
Did 3 dives. One of it was a wreck dive where a Japanese warship has sank during World War II. Upon arriving on the location itself, you could smell the oil leakage from the ship wreck itself. Makes me wonder why is there still oil in that ship even after 68 years. Will write a more in depth post on this dive soon for those who wants to read more about it.
Decided to watch The Conjuring with a couple of friends.
By now, I’m dead tired. Took a power nap before heading to the cinema. It’s an amazing horror film. Couple it up with a midnight show, it sure does gives you the chills. Can feel my chair moved because of sudden jolts by others on the same row. One thing for sure, trust Asians in making horror films. Did you know the director, James Wan was born in Kuching? So proud of Sarawak roots!
First in line to board AirAsia. Super ‘kiasu’. Got a nice front seat 11B but the seats can’t recline. Freaking hell!
Woke up by a phone call.
Good thing that call came in. My alarm was set to 6am instead of pm. I could’ve so missed the wedding. I’m happy I made it to the wedding. It’s such a blessing being able to witness all the joy and happiness that is bestowed upon my friend Shu Fen. And partying with her again makes me realize how much I’ve missed and appreciate her company. Congrats to you Chuong & Shu Fen.
Lastly, not forgetting all the family and friends that I’ve met up with in these few days. I had the time of my life! I thank God for the safe journey, 2 wonderful weddings, the dive trip and countless joys and laughter.
Leaderonomics is here with some crucial tips in what not to do with your resume.
Great fun filming this with Ming too!
The story is that Alex told Agnes that he will be arriving to KL on Wednesday morning. But in fact he was already in KL the day before.
The grand surprise is that I’ll get Agnes to Mid Valley to rendezvous with Alex for the proposal.
Everything went well until Tuesday morning. Agnes told me around 11:00am that she didn’t want to go Mid Valley with my dad anymore because she will be leaving the office late. I panicked because how else could I trick her into going to Mid Valley?
I told her that it’s my father’s last night in KL and said that my dad would like to bring her out to eat. Plus, my sister is also arriving that night itself.
Luckily she said yes. So everything went well until I arrived at Mid Valley. I told Alex that we’re here and he got a shocked because we arrived 30 minutes earlier. He asked me to stall her and I did.
Below is the video of what happens next…
