We still haven’t cleared the first month of the year and things
have already got dialed up to 11. Mama got discharged from the
hospital on Sunday. It was for the second time in a week. She’s
doing much better now and is still resting. To those who sent
their well wishes and visited her at the hospital, thank you so
much for your concern.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, my home DSL connection was
still on the fritz. Needless to say, it caused me much hardship
on top of the already existing one I had in dealing with Mom’s
ordeal. I was depending on it to deal with stuff at work from
home but the fault has been almost three weeks in passing with
no resolution in sight. So I did what most Malaysians do a lot:
It took some effort to get the service back to normal and
for that, I’d like to express my utmost gratitude to
Josh Lim,
Kim Chow
and Jeff Ooi
for their assistance in getting the ISP concerned to pay
attention. I must also thank Puan Rozian, Head of TM’s CRM for
giving her personal attention in this matter to get things
moving along.

Alhamdulillah. Life is good again! I am indeed grateful.
Happy New Gregorian Year again, Happy belated Awal Muharram and
Happy Chinese New year in advance.
