Morning’s Attraction

February 6, 2014 - One Response

This early morning… as in now! I recall my first ever lengthy poem.  (Have I posted this before?  Urghh!!  Lamentable memory…):

As I rose up early, early at dawn,

Gazing sleepily, shadows at the lawn,

My heart suddenly was ripped and torn,

Between sleep or sight the beautiful morn.

The morning breeze was cool and fresh,

I shivered when it hits my skin and flesh,

At last, all agog I decided to jog,

Into the mystical, morning fog.

The fog slowly, surely, cleared away,

When the sun shone its earliest ray,

Noon will replace for morn won’t last,

But it’ll come back when night had passed.

And I no doubt! shall be in lust,

Enter the mist… that I must!

If not, I’ll be in distraction…

For I’m under the spell of morning’s attraction.

Hmm, wonder whether people still write poetry!?? … I mean the kind that doesn’t turn into a song.  On an afterthought, maybe I should create music to accompany it. Heh! Heh!

Ketupat Daun Palas

This is what I ate nearly everyday for 2 weeks since Hari Raya or what’s left of ’em; ketupat daun palas, boiled egg and kuah kacang for sauce. heh!heh! 😛

… Well, earlier days, there were still beef rendang or chicken rendang leftovers. Photo showed the last portion, finally!!! whew!!

Rainy Season

October 24, 2007 - 2 Responses

It’s rainy season now. For the past 3 days, it rained almost non-stop and weather is forecasted to stay that way the whole week.

It is hard to get out of bed. I wish I could’ve just stayed tucked in comfortably longer. Sigh! 😐 Actually, it rained a lot than usual this year; I could not even tell any dry seasons.

Do you notice the sky? It is shrouded with clouds. I guess it’s due to the global warming effects too. The temperatures are cooler. Heh!heh! I’m now less susceptible to cold showers I take every morning. I was recalled to the time I took a cold shower at Laban Rata. Mannn!!! Felt dead freezing! Burrr!!!

The good news is that our surroundings look cleaner and a report in last weekend’s newspaper informed that our rivers are relatively cleaner too. Also, the showers enable me to wash my car more frequently… not during thunderstorms of course. He! He! 😉

My Hari Raya and F1 2007 Driver Title

October 22, 2007 - 5 Responses

It’s been more than a week now since Hari Raya Aidilfitri. I’m feeling less lethargic. Aidilfitri hols to me is not the time I’d expect to enjoy restful days. Contrary, it’s the most energy sapping of hols.

The eve before Raya, I busied myself doing final house cleaning chores. Had to give up my bedroom to sis and her family who’d come to stay for the night. I woke up in the morning with a very stiff back the aftermath of physical excercise and for having slept on a bamboo mat in my younger sister’s bedroom (bad choice!) 😛 and the suspicion of a nagging headache! Sheesh!!

Anyway, usually after raya prayer, there’s a late breakfast together with the whole family. Since I don’t cook or bake, I bought some hari raya cookies. This year, I spent less than what I did the last time. But satisfying! When the cookies are finished, I still have a hamper of goodies that I received from my supplier to serve guests. 😀

If you ask me, it rather was a heavy meal to consume after 1 month of fasting, not a smart thing to do; gonna shock the tummy! Guess which dish I prepared?! heh!heh!

After cleaning up and putting away the dishes, we started our routine travel of ‘balik kampung’. The first day, we drove to Temerloh, Pahang; my mother’s hometown. The pleasant part was that this year all her 8 siblings returned home to visit grandma. She looked aged and her movement was slower but she was in good health. I also met with all my cuzs. The bad news was that my pockets bled more; uhuk! Uhuk! Wail!!! 😥 Ohhh!! All those ‘angpow’s, I’d been obliged to distribute!!

We travelled back to KL the same night. My headache hadn’t abated and once I reached home I was flat out and was out like a light!

The next day, we travelled to N.Sembilan and Melaka to visit relatives from father’s side. Traffic crawled from Nilai to Seremban. What should have taken 1/2 an hour, took more than an hour. We’d expected an accident occurred… and were right_ only that it happened on the OTHERSIDE!!!! Grrrrr!!! “@*&^%&$$¬!!* I bet all those drivers slowed down to have a look – at a car that had hit a lamp post… Malaysians sure are a curious LOT!!!! Aiyarrrr!!!!!

We arrived home at around 11.00 pm looking forward to a lazy day on the morrow. Heh! heh!


Kimi won the F1 2007 driver’s title, a great ending of a gripping 3 way race. Heh! Heh! The guy had the least chance of the 3. I’m glad!! Personally, I was banking on him to win this. I had gotten bored with the fracas between Hamilton and Alonso.

It is a great overall result for Heidfeld too. He achieved his target! 😀

Poor England… Lost rugby too!! At least the lesson they can take from this, with regards to EURO 2008 football is that there’s always the outside chance… look at Kimi!!! Hehehehe 😉

Shopping Tips Tag

October 18, 2007 - Leave a Response

My headache hasn’t gone yet! The tag from Che-cheh will help fill in my post for the day. Though you know the tag will probably not have any continuity when it reaches me, heh! heh! I do appreciate your thoughts for me, kid, thanks mucho! 😉

~ Start copy ~

It’s very simple. When you receive this tag, copy the whole list and add your own shopping tip to the bottom and pass it on.

1. Wear comfy clothing when you’re shopping. You don’t wanna fuss with too many laces and buttons when you’re trying clothes on.

2. Never shop on an empty stomach. You end up buying a whole lot more than you meant to! And this applies to everything, not just food!

3. Make a list of what you need to buy and stick to it. Do not go browsing in the store and do not look left or right but focus on just getting what you came to the store for, get it, pay for it and get out! And always keep your receipt in case you change your mind, not happy or the item is broken due to manufacturer’s fault so it will be covered by warranty!

4. Remember to bring your ‘plastics’ and/or cash with you when you go shopping or when you plan to JUST window shop!

5. If you’re buying something pricey, garner as much info on it and know that you really want it, know the options and fix a budget plus 15% extra. Got that?! Good, add RM30 to go with. Drop by an ice-cream parlour and treat yourself to a generous helping of delicious ice-cream. Mmmmmmm!! At least, if your purchase fell through, the day shopping would still be worth it! 😀

~ End copy ~

Whew!!! This is not too lengthy…
Anyone who’s interested in doin’ this tag, you’re welcome! 🙂

Prelude to Aidilfitri – Endless clean up

It’s just a few days more to Hari Raya Aidilfitri day. It marks the end of Ramadhan fasting month. I don’t bake hari raya cookies so I bought ‘em, heh!heh! I think 5 types of kuih and 2 types of kerepek should be enough to appease any visitors’ appetite, yea? 😛

This year I decided to clean up the big cabinet cum shelves at our living room… Ye know what? It sure is simple to mess up stuff! Wuahahaha. 😆 I haven’t finished putting the books back in place since Sunday. They’re all over the living room. Mum’s a bit riled but she knows I’ll have the place in order eventually.

There are quite a lot of old books rotting and I saw bookworms too. 😕 Yoicks!! … And dust and cobwebs. Ah well! I’ll sort out; the damaged ones will be sold and recycled and those that are still ‘repairable’, I’ll mend ‘em. Hmmm, I wonder where I put the DIY manual guide??!!! Glad I took up this task tho’. I found a lot of old books I haven’t read for ages; books when I was a kid. 🙂

Fortunately, I clean up thoroughly every week so there is not that much of dusts, unlike my bedroom… he! He! Shush! The floor tho’ does need to be mopped and copperware polished. Whew!

On hari raya, it’ll be the usual long travel and visits to family and relatives. Sheeeshhh!! It’s gonna be very fatiguing hols! 😐

Ps. I’ll add some pictures later. 😉

Ice Cap-less

October 9, 2007 - 2 Responses

I was immensely bugged after reading an article last week regarding global warming. It’s not that I don’t know about it; people like me who wrap myself up within a kind of believable safe world, notices perils at lurking corners but choose to avoid looking at it headlong. So when I really took time to face the issue, the slap stung!

For the 1st time in a few million years, it is possible for ships to cross the Arctic Ocean without any obstruction of ice. The ice cap, the white topping on top of earth head is fast melting; 1/3 had melted and will possibly disappear in relatively no time (what much is there in 1 year nowadays!). Click here and here for 2 of many articles I read recently.

Here’re satellite views I obtained from the articles/web…

Notice the northwest sea passage opening up rapidly? Scary, huh?!

Leaving the issue to be totally sorted out by bickering politicos and big shot brutes is too optimistic to my liking. So, what little contribution you can offer to help our ailing earth, just do! Personally, I appreciate it, really. That 1 individual effort counts until humankind as a collective finally is smart enough to work together.

F1 – Fuji Television Japanese GP 2007 and Deja vu

October 1, 2007 - 2 Responses

Aiyarrrr!!! Heidfeld hindered from points and booted out of the race. Just 1 lap left before the engine failure!!!! So near. This is the second time for him failing to finish the race. 😥

The Grand Prix this year was raced at Fuji Speedway for the first time.

It was a very, very wet race but later on there were plenty of excitement and dramas after enduring 1/3 of dreary (yawn!) laps behind the safety car during which I half expected the race to be stopped. Click here. I wished I could see the famous Mount Fuji scenery but it was raining heavy so too bad.

But for viewers, here’s a view from above, at another time. 🙂

I don’t know if anyone noticed this but it seems that fate or coincidence that transpired Alonso’s outcomes so far is similar to those of Schumacher. C’mon! Juxtapose their racing history a bit. Similar plots but different casts. At first I watched amused but hey!! What a carbon copy too. But of course, arguably, they’re world champions so the champion traits are there. 😛 Here’s just the tip of it…

The Champ
Michael Schumacher – 2x World Champions with Benetton (now bought by Renault) + 5x world champ with Ferrari.
Fernando Alonso – 2x World Champions with Renault (moved to MacLaren)

The speedy Englishman (arch-rival)
Damon Hill
Lewis Hamilton

Plus Ayrton Senna(arch-rival)

He’s currently not so popular with fans too because of recent controversies but Alonso can’t beat Schumacher in the controversial driver category yet Heh! Heh! In the ‘evil’ Shumi heydays, I was an ardent supporter. 😆

I read an excerpt of an interview with Lewis Hamilton last night. He mentioned about the possibility of Alonso pulling a Schumi stunt in the last races!! Heh! heh! He saw the pattern too between these 2.. n hey! He idolises Ayrton Senna. Well! Well!

I wait in anticipation of what’s more to come. Wuahahahha! 😉

UPDATE: Hamilton is currently under investigation for the accident involving Webber and Vettel. Whoaa!! Things are really heating up! Tho’ I don’t see what the problem is. But if he is penalised, then there’s gonna be 3 guys racing for the title. Corker!! 😮

Quick jot on EPL

September 27, 2007 - 2 Responses

It’s bright and sunshiny days for Arsenal so far. Now we have money aplenty, $70 mil in the kitty. The club’s financial result was announced this week and whoa boy! Arsenal has the next highest (after Real Madrid) operating profit and high turnover. All that achieved without needing any injection from loaded owners. The club held its own. Well done! 😀 😀

There are +ve and –ve consequences of buy outs by financial owners; the bad is currently being enacted by Chelsea … can’t really blame Roman for directing tactics over the team management; he, after all invested 1/2 a billion into the club …but what a hiccup! I guess it’s fortunate that Glazier doesn’t interfere with Sir Alex’s ministering, else we’d see NFL style integrated in EPL, wuahahaha!! 😛

Apart from this, Arsenal is on a roll and I hope the guys can keep the momentum going and take advantage of the woes that betide others. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Arsenal 5
Derby County 0

Carling Cup
Arsenal 2
Newcastle United 0

I’ve been tuning in to most of the EPL matches, watching performances of other teams, just to tailor my expectation with regards to Arsenal. The boys really have it right against lesser teams (a reason for our failure last season). Heh! heh! … there’s no satisfying the pundits tho’. Now they say, let’s see how Arsenal pits against the stronger sides first. 😆

Man U is starting to improve, very pacy but too rushed. Hahahaha. Didja notice how Paul never forgets to mention the missing Nistelrooy’s factor every time he analysed Man U??! I tellja, every time!!! And where’s Torres??! Liverpool fans I’m most certain, like me, just don’t get Rafa’s rotation system … and I wonder how long it will take for Chelsea to bounce back after Maurinho.

I like watching Fulham, not as skilful but they do have comeback tricks up their sleeves. Other teams worth mentioning are Manchester City, Everton and Portsmouth… oh and 1 super cool Anelka! When’s the next score, dude?! 😉

Writin’ about Japanese stuff. 😀

This Japanese teapot is called TOKONAME-YAKI originated from Tokoname city somewhere in Japan. It is made of a type of Japanese ceramics called tokonameyaki, I think. Heh!heh! It has a history dated as far back as 900 years.

There’s a coil of filter inside which is cool!

I bought it as a souvenir from my recent trip there. I wanted to buy something uniquely Japanese and made in Japan. The teapot attracted my attention. A bit pricey though. And I wasn’t aware of its historical significance then. Glad I chose it. K-san e-mailed me the info when I reached Malaysia. Domo! 🙂

The first time I visited Japan, I bought bedroom yukatas 😛 for the whole family. The hotel where I stayed provided me a very comfy yukata to wear every night and I was enticed into buying one but ended up buying 7!!! 😆 . I still wear mine sometimes.

Well, the 2nd time I went there, I met Touya. I brought him home with me. Heh!heh! 😉

Pre-Test Anxiety

September 18, 2007 - 3 Responses

Sigh!! Again, I didn’t sleep soundly last night. I woke up at 3 ++ am and started to toss and turn. Bed was heavenly and the fresh air outside was very cool. Closed my eyes as best as I could to return to slumber but no go! 😦

There was no breeze but the air nowadays is colder than before. It must have been due to the effect of global warming. Normally, I’d sleep with my blanket folded neatly beside me but now I had to cover part of my body with a blanket and eventually tuck my whole body into it as the night got chillier.

I got up and made ready for work! I left early. It was a pleasant drive. One good thing about leaving early for work is that I’d get to gaze at millions of stars above on a clear night… and the air is fresher to breath in. 🙂 However, today, while I did take in those pleasures minus the stars (cirrus clouds engulfed the sky), my mind still felt hazy… 😐

Anyway, my heart rate had gone berserk ever since I saw my colleague readying for a Japanese test which she had to sit for yesterday. Last night before I went to bed, I stared dumbfounded at some of the Japanese language exercises. The test is tomorrow!!! Hadn’t had anxiety attack like this since I left university. Hahahaha. 😛

It indicated how unprepared I am for the test. I found the 2nd level (beginner! 😛 ) of Japanese very difficult. The structures are different from that of English. I’m rather used to English, I had a hard time adjusting to the differences. Sheesh!!

Dang!! I need to go back home early today to start revising. Thing is bugging me lots. Wish me Luck!!! Lots!!! 😕 😕

I experienced a bad dream last night. I dreamt of helping bro’ to catch 2 ‘supernatural’ beings. They looked something like a mix of shadowy Sméagol of LOTR and spirits that were vaporising. Heh! heh! 😛

Arghhh!! Couldn’t recall the details. But I wonder what it meant?! Maybe I looked up at the clouds too many times… but whatever, it was energy sapping and eerie!!! Whew!! 😦

I read somewhere that said that dream could be a fast track (not sure whether it is reverse or forward, heh!heh!) playback of previous events meld with perception of future unfold or crap!

Care to gaze through your crystal ball and tell me what you think… 😀

What’s clear and sure is that I woke up feeling very drowsy and puffy-eyed and weak! …and still am. Huaaaa!!! zzzzzzzzzzzzz…………….

Careful when you buy convenience goods at hypermarkets or supermarkets, that is if you’re particular about brands. 😀 These h- and m- markets offer packaging to generic goods. Normally, to compete with more established brands, the goods are sold cheaper and varying tactics are used to ‘attract’ customers; i.e. packaging, positioning, location. 😛

Check this out! 😉

I use Darlie toothpaste. Bought a few boxes but among them was one misfit!?!???! Haaahh?! 😮 Wuahahahaha!!!! 😆 😆 😆 Didn’t notice that another sneaky brand sat at the same rack with Mr. Darlie. The cheek!!! Can’t blame anyone but meself. Heh! heh!

Another time; I thought I bought Oral-B, it turned out to be Oral Me. Hahahaha. Come to think of it, this happened to me quite a lot. Colours sure can fool! 😆

If I have a Million Dollar…

September 13, 2007 - 2 Responses

Mo-Chuisle tagged Dreamcatcher about a million dollar ‘if dream’. Much oblige, ma’am! 😀 … hmmm, did anyone of you ever thought of where you got the millions from??? ❓

Enjoy…! 🙂


‘Darn! What misbegotten malady!’ Dreamcatcher mused. Her gut had earlier warned her against robbing the bank, specifically 👿 George W. Bush’s account. She’d been transferring $ milllions to random accounts (… and helped realised a lot of people’s dreams too!! Check out the lists below… Wuahahahaha!! 😆 )but got bored and seeked other challenge.

$ $ $

Everything went well at first; $1 mil was in the sack, no information leaked of her identity, there were no casualties barring a few bruised egos, and she managed to escape in a getaway airplane. The only glitch was that there was not enough fuel to last her journey whole. 😳

There she was, stranded on a small, tropical island somewhere at the Pacific oceans, saddled with a plane and empty tank and $1 mil.

Cool breeze fluttered the sack open, greenbacks flew out and scattered all over the white sandy beach, clear blue sky and pristine aquamarine sea, one smacked on her face as though mocking her ‘triumph’.

Sheesh!! Nothing good comes out of ill gotten gains; she’d gotten by her just dessert. 😥

‘Most benevolent and Almighty!! Are those colourful stuff soft corals waving and lapsing above the gentle ebbing tides? Gad!!! There should be all kinds of sea dwellers too!’ Wasting no more time she headed for the sea for a spot of snorkeling, heh! heh! 😀 😀 😀

Dreamcatcher knew she was nothing if not resourceful, she’d think of a way to get back home in no time. Treasured memories and faith of loved ones would carry her on through the loneliness and nights in wait. Live, enjoy life, dream and realise; all those attributes in one package, that is Dreamcatcher… now, if only she has a volley ball to talk to… but the coconuts also will do. He he.



Take a break and have a go!!! 🙂

Do you know why the road maximum speed limit is at 110 kmph? It’s the maximum limit human body can take without breaking to bits, in a head on collision. ❗

When it comes to driving, we, in general are idiots and a selfish lot. I drove recklessly too when I first obtained a driving license. I remembered sliding at every road bend feeling ‘big’ and for want of consideration for others… the hell with it!!! 👿

I hope I’m wiser now. I maintain as best as possible 60 kmph or less at residential areas, kampong areas and in towns. I become more attuned to surroundings. I hit the accelerator hard only at highways but with a cool head and a measure of common sense.

There are too many accidents nowadays. It is distressing to read/watch about them or when passing by animals’ carcasses at roadsides.

The other day, on my way to work, I stopped to let a stray dog cross the road. The streetwise dog looked to left and right. Still, it might have been hard had vehicles moved too fast – too late for the dog to turn around or dash forward and too late for vehicles to notice, brake or make evasive manoeuvre.

A stray’s life expectancy is short, 1-2 years. This is 1 of the cause. 😕

The following day, carcass of the dog lied on a road a few kilometres further. The body was flattened but its still well-intact face gazed forlornly at oncoming cars. A very sad sight!

I’m not asking anyone to drive slower, just reminding you to DRIVE MORE SELFLESS!!!! 😐

Monday Morning n it Rained

September 10, 2007 - 2 Responses

Today is a Monday that twiddled everyone to stay in bed and to say ‘sod off work!!’ At 4 am it rained. The raindrops were like shower sprays at mid setting, like a rinse mode from an auto car wash at a petrol kiosk. I could tell by just listening. Cool, fresh outdoor air and steady tempo made by patter of rain on the rooftop and trees further soothed me to snug deeply into my comfy cocoon; a combination of bed, 4 pillows, blanket and fresh bed sheet and pillow cases.

5 am alarm chimed – quickly turned off by poking the hand phone button with one index finger.
5.20 am alarm chimed and as deftly dealt with.
5.35 am – drat!!! “I’m a slave of conscience after all”, I thought and prepared for work. Why must this happened on a Monday?? 😥

Mann!!! It rained heavenly from KL all the way to Shah Alam. I bid all u smart people who stayed longer in bed a very good day ahead. You chose wisely. Sigh!

😉 My round of applause to
Justin Henin and Roger Federer, US Open 2008 Champs
Nadal – you won me over. Apart from your ferocious determination, I like the scowl you make every time you look at your opponent from across court, heh! heh!
Fernando Alonso, F1 Italian GP 2008, Champ

One Year and Tinker time

Tomorrow marks 1 year of this blog’s creation… though admittedly, my 1st post came 4 months later. Wuahahaha! 😆

A new look is in order. Added categories …and About page in a short while. Noticed that I have yet to write much about all the travellings I did. 😳

Ooh! I did draft a few but too long-winded; made me want to gag after readin’ ’em. So I wouldn’t want readers to suffer the same kinda torture hence they are put on hold… also, I haven’t got the hang of attaching picts… took too long, this task… the default roundish, supposedly-happy-invoking (don’t have a choice) font from wordpress still drives me bonkers too… but I’ll make the effort to post as many after this. 😕

And with the new word count feature which is good stuff by the by, I think’ll help me with the attempts. Thumbs up! 😀

Che-Cheh eventually persuaded me to start up a blog. To you and Mo-C, heartfelt thanks for the comments and encouragement all this while. I’m beginning to get the knack of it but money opportunity was (and still is) 😈 a strong motivator. To 1 time Pacco and all anonymous viewers who chanced upon this blog, thanks too. He he. 😉

Truth be known, still struggling to register my blog for paid post opp. Sheeshh!! 😦 But not giving up on this one! Kyaaaaaaaa!

Wow!!! Heavy downpour now!
Splendid! Hasta luego!

Cheers to a good cause and a good start

Rovers nicked a draw from Arsenal. Sheesh!!! 🙄 Halloa… that’s a different back drop from the normal Barclay’s. On further scrutiny and zoom ins, here’s the display. I was instantly gushed with warmth.

My team, Arsenal is participating in a fundraising that relates closely to my heart. My brother has autism. He’s not in the high intelligence category. He’ll need to be looked after, all his lifetime… well, he’s bro’ in thick and thin. Do click here for Arsenal’s news on this cause. 😀 😀

3 – 1

We’re not doing too badly in the league. The win over Portsmouth recently showed a good form. I think the team again played rather clumsy up front but good control and possessions at midfield left a hefty amount of breathing spaces at the back. Defence still need to buck up though; we haven’t been truly tested there. And I’m hoping for more apt attacks and attempt at goals. Hmm, why aren’t they utilising Eduardo more??! 😕

Heh! Heh! It’s funny how commentators couldn’t make much of Arsenal. I laughed out loud at how McMahon would like to see Arsenal scoring early but when it did, he’d preferred that Arsenal scored later. Wuahahaha!! 😆

This is a very strong team that creates interesting build-ups and tried patience –unpredictable tag to it. It keeps everybody’s toes tingling. Next, Spurs, whoaaa!!! ❓

But yea, we’re just making ourselves suffer long for scoring late, so a goal every 10 minutes would be fine with me as long as we’re winning… pleeease Arsenal!!! He he. 😉

Ahh!!! Home Sweet Home! I knew I was in Malaysian airspace by the increased air turbulence occurrence during my flight back home. Seated at the window side, I could see fat clouds all around welcoming my arrival. Japan was still in the midst of summer; there were hardly clouds at Yokohama all blue sky and temperatures soared high. 😐

It has been more than a week since. My homecoming was greeted by news of a dented car. 😡 😡 Felt rather peeved with both dad and bro’. Bro’ had forgotten to pull up the hand brake when he parked. The car smacked a wall up front. Dad parked the car somewhere and we deduced someone rammed the front while trying to reverse out of parking. Hit and run case. Sigh!

The car looked ok but when I opened the bonnet, the magnitude of the damage was more apparent. It dented at the middle, number plate went missing and radiator smashed. In total, I had to fork out more than RM500 for repairs. Sheer bad luck!! 😥

I was not too put out as I usually would have though, given the circumstance. I was in a jovial mood, (now, who wouldn’t?!) after having spent a very pleasant time in Japan. The hospitality and cordiality of my Japanese counterparts lingered in my memory. Arigato gozaimashita! Tanoshii katta desu!!! 😀

I returned with loads of job follow-up to do. I returned to a tatty but functional car. I returned with less cash than I had planned of. I returned in anticipation of lots of wet weather… and I returned back to family and those whom I take most to heart. Good to be back, notwithstanding.

He he. I know it is very belated and I had my say already. But my blog ignores any temporal bind. Happy Birthday, Che-cheh!! And happy everyday everyone!!! … Also hope that little man Hzq is recovered from eye infection. 😉
