Have you write this essay before?
Do you still remember what did you write?
What did you want to be after 10 years?
Are you what you dream to be?
For me, it is easiest to write about wanting to be teacher or a nurse, typical girls job. Anyway it is essay for fulfillment of academic request. Have to pretend to be very contributing to the society and not selfish. 10++ years ago, in secondary school, what did we know about paying tax and better chance?
At 17 or 18 years old, rich parents started to infuse the idea of studying abroad and work abroad with better pay into their children's mind. I know many people who study abroad, stay there and migrated. I also know many of them came back to Malaysia. Government called them patriotic, I say they wasted their parents' efforts. Parents sent you away and not expect you to come back to work with small salary in Malaysia. But you are back, work with small salary that you will take forever to earn back your super expensive school fee.
Children with poor parents, parents only expect us to finish our school, and work. Most parents too busy working to feed children. Most of the parents want their children to further their study. They know the importance of education. Some parents only know their children have to work and earn money. At this stage, it is all depend on the child. Some of these children end up to be a successful businessman. University only educate us to be a worker. 'Society' university force us to be innovative in earning money.
So now is that tenth year, what have you become?
So what if you had become of what you had dream of?
So what if you are different from your dream?
So now what? Start to dream of what happen after 10 years?
Dreams come true

proceeding to single leg lifts.
It is not hard following from page 27 - 45 of the book, with photos of each steps.
It is hard to read in the middle of a pose. Pictures help a lot. Just a glance, let me remember what is the next pose.
Posing is not as hard as breathing. Most of the time, can be too focus on posing, and neglected breathing rhythm. Only need to relax and do it slowly, no teacher to scold you.
I like self teaching because my hands and legs can't coordinate very well. Most probably will be scolded by Danny if he is the teacher.
Answering SK's question, OUM chanting is a chanting that can provides body-mind harmony, can make us more body-mind-aware while doing yoga.
After this one leg lifting yoga, my legs felt like just had a run. It is because the stretching.
Tomorrow is Raya, Eid for muslim community.

I lay down a towel on the floor. Fifi try to intrude my towel space.
Then I lay down and do 'corpse' pose.
Then OUMMMMMMMMMM.... in sitting position.
While I was OUMMM, Fifi took the chance and sit on my towel.
Aahh, fifi, naughty fifi, take advantage and sit on my towel.
Lastly, I practice active relaxation.
Fell asleep on the towel on the floor. Too relaxing.
I thought yoga is so easy, just lie down and move fingers and foot. After I browse through the whole book, I see I have not get to the tough part yet. apooooooooooooooooooooooo

You may wonder why ghostynana? Usually the name of a blog defines the blogger. A blog with the name of hotmama.com, we know that the blogger is a mother and probably a hot one. The name defines the blogger. During that time, every Sunday, I always change my Facebook profile picture to this:
I get a lot of comments complimenting my eeriness and how they had nightmares after they saw this photo. One of my friends commented and she wrote 'ghostynana'. Without further ado, I named my blog as ghostynana.blogspot.com.
ok I got bored of re-write this speech. This is actually part of my toastmaster speech for last Thursday. It is CC3, competent communicator. I really prefer to write on paper books than typing. I got bored!
Ding Dong! so bored!

1st Project to Egypt 2005-2006
8/2/2006 5:04:07 PM
I started working for my company on 29 December 2005.
My 1st station of work is in Ras El Bar, Egypt. It is located at one of the branches of the Nile, 3 hours drive from Cairo & Alexandria. My base camp is in the coastguard area. So it is felt like restricted & confined by military jail. On the other side of the river, there is a small town or summer town. During the day, it is deserted. Egyptian life starts at night. Around 5pm, people start to move around in the town area. Due to winter now, only small population exists in this summer town. It is said it will be crowded during summer.
As I am a foreign lady in that place, I have attracted lots of unwanted attentions. Those attentions left me insecure. Their FAQ to a lady are, 'Are you Muslim', 'How old are you?', & 'Are you married?’ It is quite disturbing. Being in Egypt makes me felt that I am lucky that I am a Malaysian.
In the beginning, I wonder why most people said Egypt has the most beautiful view. Then I realized that the most interested view that I noticed is the view of oasis. I have seen oasis with rubbish. My deepest impression of Egypt is that it is dirty. I have seen a small river full of rubbish. Rubbish is everywhere. It is hard to find a proper rubbish bin. This country has a poor management.
Most of the Egyptian are Muslim. There are minority who are Croptic & Catholic Christians. Among the population of Christian in Egypt, I was told that population of woman is more than man. This is one of the factors that many Christian women remain single.
My Egyptian friend told me that Muslim body covered culture has only begin around 20 yrs ago. In some places, only Christian did not wear head cover.
By the way, I got a nickname here. The boat driver, Hamama (Bird) called me Asfura. Asfura ia a small bird with beautiful voice. That is a compliment for me.I left Ras El Bar in the mid of March. Yeah, I celebrate my birthday here.

No matter how old a person can be, that person long for a companion.
No matter how old a person can be, that person will still get married when the person meet a soulmate.
Somehow I felt that marriage had became a channel to make us memorable to the world, as in making someone somebody to somebody.
A husband to a lady, a wife of a man, a mother to a child.
Everyone of us long for a status.
In career, we might want a status of manager, having name card printed out, showing off to our peer.
In relationship, we want a marriage certificate to officially announce our status as someone's wife or husband.
Officially announcing that we belong to someone.
Like a child finally own a bed, not just mattress.
When our peers passed away, and we passed away, as everyone busy with daily routine, soon memory of us would be forgotten.
Only when they saw our children's face, they would be reminded that they know someone who looks like our children.
Thanks to human photographic memory!
Hope you get what I mean.

It is the day I check out toilet roll in Giant. Might probably shout out if it is on sale or it is still expensive.
If you want to know the brand, it is blue n colour. When it 1st came out in market, it's advertisement is about how much longer it is compare to brand X toilet roll. I still remember both brand of toilet roll were pulled by balloon up to the sky, and see which brand run out of paper 1st.
My dad may not be an accountant. He used his own way to measure which one is more worth his money. By using his two finger, he pinched the roll from the side. The new brand is worth for every extra cent we paid for it. This new brand is more dense, last longer and the ply does not tear easily. Who wants toilet ply to tear in the middle of wiping the ass? Ewww~~~~~
Usually this brand cost around RM 12.50. When it is on sale, It would be only around RM 9.50 to RM 11. It depends on the mood of Giant Hypermarket. Each person is limited to 3 packs.
I have only 2 hands, with the car parked so far away. I have to walk 5 mins before I can reach the car. When it is RM9.50, I don't mind hugging 2 packs and walking around hugging toilet rolls, hugging it along the way to the car, crossing roads with many people watching me hugging toilet rolls. I bet no one dare to claim that I am their friend at that moment.
Every cent I earned, I earned it with sweat and blood.

Photographers love the tree, because they have forgotten or ignorant of horror image of the tree.
It is like get married in black wedding gown. Ignorant that black is taboo in Chinese wedding, and get married in black.
I know my photographer friends would be mad of me, for disclosing the horror image of their favourite tree. hahahhaha, I am so BAD.
There is a newly opened, luxury version of coffee house.
We were sitting opposite the coffee house, admiring its interior design.
There are many white huge lanterns hanging from ceiling.
I spoke up my mind and praise it is quite interesting place, so white and bright.
As honest as my dad can be, he said it looks like lanterns for the dead.
Growing up with Hong Kong horror movies, all those white lantern with ghost flying around with white lanterns is flying around my mind.
Ok It is spooky.
Yeah, it does look like lantern for dead.
I am not superstitious, I am only scaredy-cat.
