98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
though a well known fixture around several of the city’s chruches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living instead off his monthly state pension of 80 euros.
Sometimes the world surprises me and I cry
There’s so many people I feel so susah nak bernafas. Arg. I cannot stand keramaians. Unless it’s a gig. The only time I’ll put up with crowds.
Macam mana ni. Harap-harap spize tak ramai sangat orang. I will be so angry if there is!
Ergh people jusk keep packing it in! I’m standing in between cars so there’s still some space to breathe. Have I mentioned that I hate crowds? Yea. I have. I hate crowds.
Ok I cannot concentrate. 6 more stations. I CAN DO THIS.
I hate how yesterday turned out. Basically lazed about the house and only went out to the shop downstairs. I hate that I only properly woke up at 4 and that there was nothing on tv when I decided to watch some. I also hate that I was home when sunset hit. I hate sunsets cos I hate to see the light turning into darkness and how it means the beginning of the end of another day.
The only thing that was nice about yesterday is Kitti’s call.
Now I’m still awake and contemplating if I should crawl into my favourite position and sleep and hopefully wake up to the sunrise.
The Adventures of Sheep and Kitti
If kitti hadn’t called earlier, I would have woken up to find myself at Jurong. Oh the horror! I’m so thankful she had a gut instinct to call, so I only terbabas a couple of stations. I’d be so sad otherwise.
I’m so happy to be away from store this long though I know I shouldn’t be. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the shifts away. It really felt like a holiday. But after tomoro’s off day, it’d be back to the lalangs. Booo shakalaka betul.
2 days ago, I had my quarterly meeting with Mr Bay. As always, he delivers. Now I have hair like Alecia Moore (not Riri pleeeease)! It’s the most drastic haircut I’ve ever had. So much so I have to hide it from mom for the next 2 weeks for fear that she sees it and disowns me. haha!
Kitti got her hair cut also but she doesn’t like it cos it’s shorter than what she’d normally do. I love it! I really think it looks good on her. It’ll grow back sweets, natt to warry.
Today, like I told her some time back, kitti’s hotness level is times ten thousand cos she just had her first impression! I’m so happy for her cos I know she’ll be really good. I have faith that she’ll excel with flying colors and fireworks (speaking of which, there’ll be none for me cos I’ve to do the damned graveyard shift! Upset!). I believe in her.
Ah. Hot hot hot (but miss, you better not be too charming, if y’know what I mean) ! Can’t wait to see kitti doing her thing on her own shift. Mmmmmmmm suka!
I am in zombie mode now. I better sleep before I start chewing on my sister’s leg or something.
You’ve been nothing but wonderful. You brighten up any room you’re in with your wit and laughter and that’s just amazing. I appreciate all that you’ve done for me. I’m glad our paths crossed. ^ ^
My poor cat is sick. I hate that I can’t be there for her. She’s still asleep. I hope work will be easy on her (and me, haha) later. Kesian cat ): She spent last night alternating between sleep and texting me. She’ll say that she’s going to sleep, and 10mins later I would receive another text from her. Repeat 5 times. Haha kiiuuut. I really hope she’ll be okay.
Amin’s right. Bila mau game? I’m guilty for the response. No matter how upsetting it all is, I should’ve just let it be. That’ll be the last coming from me. Really now.
Yes > No > So long and goodbye
I have a cat and love her very much. She keeps me going cos I know at the end of a hard day, she’ll be there listening to me pour my heart out. Just knowing that she’ll be there makes it all ok.
I wish I could have ended the year at the place I started but that’s just not to be. I have to accept that though it’s taking me longer than I thought it would.
If it’s not ok, it’s not the end. I’m really glad I have my cat. She’s been nothing short of amazing.
