The weekend was here again. The mere thought of a free Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning was ecstatic. Sitting or sleeping under the warmth of the winter Sun,doing nothing but that, shall be how the time would be utilised. “Man proposes, weather Man disposes!” The heavens had opened up.

After examining the relevant car papers and finding all in order, they started to ask some mundane questions like; “Why the jeep’s headlight glass is not blackened in the upper half?” “The car number plate is a little small.” etc. etc.
It was by now obvious to the couple that thepolice were just harassing them to get some bribe out. As the policemen discussed something with their officer who sat in a small cubical on the roadside, the young couple started to have an argument. The wife suggested that they give a little bribe and then they could be on their way. The husband would not budge from his committed stand of “No Bribing!”.

I was to be startled by sudden movement of something on my still dangling leg. As if by reflex, my hand, with all the energy and quickness,went down to grab my thigh. I suddenly realized that a small little brat rat had ventured into my pajamas and was going up towards the forbidden area. What nerve and balls does this rat have?No, no buddy. This is a no entry zone. I jumped and shook the leg and the whole body as if being electrocuted. Before I knew it, the rat had beaten a retreat and had run under the bed. I took my slipper, the only potential weapon that I had near me and banged it against the bed and on the floor trying to scare the rat out.No, the rat wasn’t coming out.

Yesterday I went to Sogo Mall in downtown Kuala Lumpur. Had to park my car there and go to an office in Pertama Complex building next to it. After I finished the office work, came back to Sogo and felt the need to go to the washroom. Most Malls in KL now don’t charge to use the washroom but Sogo still charges 30 cents per visit. There was no attendant when I went. So I did my business and as no one was there to accept or was it demand the 30 cents due on me, I left for home. Today I went back to Sogo for some work and left the 30 cents on an unmanned table.
It was just a matter of 30 cents but it bothered me. I felt like a cheat. Was I reading too much into it? Would it have mattered to anyone? Was I being too sensitive? Should I have in fact been happy to have saved 30 cents?
Is there any merit to the saying “Nothing is good or bad, only thinking makes it so”!
