It's bad to be nice sometimes..

Yesterday, while I was going back to work after lunchbreak, I've noticed someone left her iPad in a leather case on the bench in Metro Station waiting area.

I looked around to see whether the owner is still there, I saw her when she left because she was sitting near me. I was actually having second thought whether to pick it up or just leave it there, let someone else find and take it but decided to pick it up. I again looked around trying to remember which direction the owner went to but can't recall if she headed out the station or down the subway. I walked slowly to the escalator, was going down to give it to Metro personnel.

When I was already on the escalator, I looked back and saw the owner going back to the bench. Then she looked at my way, saw me and waved to me. I waved back showing her her iPad and started climbing up then stopped when I realized I was on the down escalator LOL.

She followed me to the escalator and when she reached me I immeadiately handed her the iPad back, telling her I was actually going to give it to Metro personnel. She just said "thanks" and never smiled. She doesn't look too pleased. When we reached the floor, she took the up escalator without looking back.

Seriously, my jaw dropped. I felt bad. What was she thinking, I would keep it? Hadn't it occur to her that if I had the intention, I would have had put it inside my bag as fast as I can? But matter of fact, I didn't even bother to take it out from its case.

I am steadily losing my faith in humanity...

Mom's Prescription

Yesterday, I texted my mom about the sudden pain at my left jaw, near my ear, for the last 2 consecutive mornings (Thu & Fri). I described to her the pain comes at the junction of jaw, ear, cheekbone, only the left side. It kinda hurts while opening my mouth a big wide and when chewing in the morning.

She replied: "Must be ear infection. Take amoxicillin 3x a day for 3 days"

Lol. Like a doctor. Told her it isn't ear infection, because it doesn't pain when I clean my ear. Either it's a wisdom tooth or "dislocated" jaw :-s

Her next reply: Take paracetamol.

Me: What? I already had amoxicilllin! LOL

Her: when you get better stop taking the amoxicillin.

Me: Ok. =))

So anyway, as I googled, it somehow matches with TMJ. So I diagnosed myself with TMJ disorder. Yep, like mother like daughter. We're a family of doctors. Hahahaha.

As I've said  I only feel it in the morning, yeah the pain was back when I woke up this morning. and it gets better during the day and night. I hope it will go away just like that.

Obsession to Travel

My feet are becoming "itchy"... and I've been obssessing to travel lately.

Something is telling me to fly somewhere and get my passport stamped. I guess it's really because I want to prove that I can afford to go anywhere and that Switzerland is not the only place in the world to go to. Also to cover the Swiss-visa-denial, LOL. Either that or the globe-trotter-wannabe (read: frustration) within me has started to kick in.

I've been bugging my sister to ask bil (my brother-in-law / her husband) to drive us to Oman this Eid holidays for the sake of passport stamping. LOL. I've been "bribing" them that I will shoulder our hotel expenses. Haha I'm really that desperate to go, seriously. And I don't know what's going on with me.

I've been thinking of Maldives too..

Anyway, travelling has always been my dream, my passion. I really want to step outside of my comfort zone from time to time and see the world because I know there's so much to see, to taste and to experience a different way of life

Indeed! I want to be rich that way...
