Be Careful What You Wish For

Evidence 1:

It wasn’t long ago when I complained how boring my life was & how nice it would be if I could travel a bit more…maybe for work, or play, or anything! I just wanted to get out from the house & go somewhere! 

So when I had a little money & was able to afford a little holiday, last year I booked my Mount Kinabalu climb in April & Beijing trip in May. Ahhh, travelling finally. 🙂 But I realised soon after my KK trip that I shouldn’t have planned 2 high energy trips back-to-back. Sigh. OK nevermind, I’ll be able to rest after Beijing. Then….*bling* suddenly I was told that the regional department meeting this year will be held in Phuket…and it will be in June! *Gulp* OK, so that’s 3 trips in 3 months in a row!  And of course, since I’ll be there, might as well extend a few more days & do the touristy thing that I didn’t manage to do the last time, right? Oh gosh…there goes my ‘rest after Beijing’ and the ‘little money’ that I had.

OK…THENNNNNN….the company announced that we’ll be going for our incentive trip to Hong Kong in September!!!!!!!! AND, before I knew about the Phuket trip, I had already booked for a skiing holiday to Korea with Li Ping & Fred in Jan 2012. Sooooo…..suddenly, I’m swarmed with all the travelling!!! I know I shouldn’t be complaining….I know many people could only dream of these….BUT…seriously, I am dead tired! And will be dead broke too! Haha. Now my hair stands whenever someone asks me to go on a holiday with him/her/them. Even to Melaka OK!!! It didn’t even cross my mind to try the Air Asia RM1 promo they just had recently, although it’s for next year’s travel. My brains just simply cuts off from the word ‘travel’ now. Gee….I never knew I’d ever come to this. Ever. 😛

Evidence 2:

After my climb to Mount Kinabalu, after all that sweating & pain & hard work, I noticed that my weight only dropped 1 kg…from 53 to 52 kg…and my ideal weight is 50 kg. So I wondered if I will ever be able to reach it. And then guess what? A miracle happened. I had a bad case of food poisoning right after I came back from Beijing & was having diarrhea for a week…and I finally lost that 2 kg! Of course this wasn’t how I wanted to lose it…I mean, obviously I was losing 2 kg of water instead of fats. And I looked shrunken & sunken & it was just so unhealthy. But the fact is, I had finally reached my ideal weight. Man….what can I say?!

I don’t know about you but sometimes I’m amazed by God’s sense of humour. So be careful the next time you pray for something. It might just come true…or an overdose of it. 😉
