    #3 - Ya true, keep looking and checking the time, does that stop the time come to think of it

    #4 - Pressing harder, I find it helps, doesn't it, or sometimes shaking the whole remote control

    #5 - I still can't differentiate after smelling

    #6 - I talked a lot to myself when I am alone

    1. Muahahaha! This is the first time I heard someone used middle finger to press the lift button. That is unique and funny to me. I would just use index finger.

  3. Phone and glasses, same.. I "haaaa" on the screen with my mouth, then wipe with my shirt too, hehe.. But for glasses, I use back the glasses special cloth to wipe.. But I still "haaaa" on it, I think it's cleaner and clearer..

    1. I terus put on my thumb into the peanut butter container and lick from there la, haha.. But most of the time, I use a spoon and scoop peanut butter out, and terus eat from the spoon.. Fingers, I still lick, when the peanut butter almost finish, and using fingers more suitable, haha..

      Delete
    2. Funny but true, people keep looking at the time during jam or when they wana leave.. It doesn't stop time, but I think it's a reflex action.. Wana look at the time and complaint and shout and "fatt mang jang", but padahal, you can't do anything about it when you're stuck in a jam, heh?

      Delete
    3. Nope, I don't press harder when the remote is not really working.. I "pak pak pak" loud loud & hard hard on my palm, then I press again.. Sometimes it works wor, haha.. Like my DVD punya remote, sot-sot-dei geh.. Gotta bang "pak pak pak" on the thighs or palms only it works, hmm...

      Delete
    4. About smelling the clothes, yup, this one I do also wor.. Sometimes come back from work, I see the kid's clothes all over the place.. So I pickup and smell.. I can differentiate the smell between the clean ones and worn ones.. So this one correct wor..

      Delete
    5. When I was in secondary school and college, I "talk" alone when I'm studying.. People say if we "shout out" what we read, we will remember it better, so I do it lor.. Driving also I will talk to myself, fantasize about stuffs, ala, biasa kua..

      Delete
    6. Just to add one more point today since I see most people also got add.. To think of one thing I always do without realizing it - that would be licking my lips.. Ok, not the hamsap or fatt hao kind lick, but you know, kinda "wetting" my lips with my toungue.. But very fast only la, like less than 1 second ok.. You know what I mean mou..

      Delete
    7. Coz my lips very easy dry geh.. In aircond places especially, like office or when sit colleague's car go lunch or what.. When it gets dry (and if I don't realize it), can be very embarrassing, when people talking to me..

      Tepi-tepi there, got white white stuff, like dried skin like that, so I need to "wet/lick" my lips sekejap to moisten the lips, then the white white thing not so obvious jor lor..

      Delete
    8. And to add another gossip, that day I saw my colleague digging ear, then I go over and ask him something about work, he put his finger (the one he use to dig his ear), and put on his nose to smell.. Right in front of me! Eh, please la, if wana smell pun (I sometimes do that too, wahahahaha), do when nobody's looking la, kan?

    9. Wakakakakaa!

      You are funny to say "haaaaaa" on your phone. I only "haaaaaak" on my spectacles as they are smaller than mobile phone. I must try to "haaaaaaak" my mobile phone next time! Good idea.

      Yeeeer I thought I am the only one who digs the ear to smell. I do that to make sure my ears still smelled fragrance and clean. Those with decay smell would mean need to clean up before any nanah starts to form. I always have oily face and even my inside ears contain so much petroleum!

  4. Hahaha I do all those! Or rather, I used to do all those! Can't do #3 and #4 nowadays, because I no longer have a watch after spoiling it a couple years ago, and I don't have a TV so don't have a remote.

  6. I don't lick my fingers. So unhygienic.

  7. I guess I always look at the time. Just to see if I have enough time to do something. Or if I'm bored, just wish the time move faster.

  9. Today you are talking about some of our habits. Ya lah, you are right, we do these things without thinking. Macam automatic and we don't realize it. But other people will notice lah.

    Replies
    1. A : I have not wiped the screen of my cellphone since the day I bought it hah..hah... I think it must be very comot already. But I have done it with my specs (before I wore contacts). I will mist the glasses with my breath (hah..hah..) and then use my blouse to wipe. Quite effective wor... sampai berkilat-kilat.

      Delete
    2. B : Licking finger when accidentally spread jam or any food is quite normal lah. But don't worry, I don't do that when I bake. That would be so unhygienic unless if I bake and eat myself hah..hah...

      Delete
    3. C : Yes, I do look at my watch frequently when I am in a hurry. But it is not to will time to stop but rather to keep track of how fast I am doing. In fact, I look at my watch like that most times, not just when in a hurry because I like things to go on schedule.

      Delete
    4. D : Hmm...I tend to go near the appliance and press when I notice that the signal is weak.

      Delete
    5. E : hah..hah...I know which ones are clean and which are worn because I don't mix them up. The worn either goes into the laundry basket or is hung on my rack. But I do smell them when they come out of the washing machine just to make sure they smell fresh hah..hah..

      Delete
    6. F : This one guilty as charged!! I talk to myself quite often when I am alone. I think if people see me like that they will think this auntie already gone bonkers and should be sent to Tanjung Durian. But it is something that comes naturally to me. Especially when I am doing something messy and complex, it helps me to think clearer to solve the problem.

      Delete
    7. Before I call it a day at home, I have to "turn off" the stove and "close" the fridge/freezer door like 10 times or more. It's like I must make double, triple, xxx times sure these are all closed/off or I will make a trip downstairs to check again. Maybe this is Tanjung Durian case liao.

      Delete
    8. When I am boiling soup or anything with gravy, at the final stage of cooking, I will count 1 to 10 and end with a boom (make the noise "boom" lah, not explode anything in the kitchen) before I turn off the stove. It's like, that countdown will ensure that my soup/gravy is properly cooked .

      Delete
    9. Another one I noticed with some people is when they press the lift button and if the lift is slow, they keep jabbing the button as if it will make the lift come faster.

      Delete
    10. When I am crossing the road, sometimes there are cars that are kind of slow. Because they are slow, other cars behind will catch up before I have a chance to cross. So I tend to hit my fingers against my thigh frantically and chant quick, quick, quick so that the car will faster jalan and I can cross the road.

    11. Waaaah! I am so shocked to know that PH never need to wipe and clean the screen of her mobile phone since the say she bought it. It must be a very special and expensive phone that comes with auto wash and wiper modes!!

      I am also surprised that PH has this habit to turn off the stove and close the fridge door many times before sleep. I think this one is a rare sickness which doctors have explained that these sufferers cannot sure this habit like checking the locked cars and windows over 10 times daily. My best friend suffers from this disorder and even locks & unlocks all his 3 cars several times a day! He also checks his zipped pants many times after doing the routine "Zip & Unzip" several times.

  12. So far, I don't wipe my hp on my shirt/blouse/dress but I do it on my glasses, I mean spectacles... don't ask me why, it is my habit cos the cleaning cloth is always not around when I wanted it... as for hp, I use tissue paper normally...

  13. Licking jam off my hands if it accidentally spilled, yes.. sometimes I even use my finger to "wipe" the jam off the table and into my mouth... hahahaha..sounds irky but I do it! Not only any other table, only my own home la!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yes, I talk to myself more often now that I retire.. why ah? Not sure.. just like reminding myself what I should do just in case I forget... getting old syndrome I guess... sometimes got exclamation marks like "aiyah... aiyoh... oh dear... my gosh.. " come to think of it...

    ReplyDelete
  15. And whenever something embarrassing came to my mind, I normally hum a no-tune song... why ah? Another quirky behavior in me... Oh dear, I better not think back so much.. now I sound weird... hahahaha...

  16. A. I ever did it, sometimes outside, lazy to open bag to take out tissue, out of convenience, just use clothes to wipe, lol...

    sometimes we really do things that doesn't make any sense yet we do it anyway haha

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haha, very well written! All also very true and is applicable to me!

    The first one, not just handphone screen, even with spectacles also same!! But for me, I will just use the specific cloth to wipe my spectacles, cause I understand that normal cloth will scratch the surface. If handphone still ok la, cause it's the screen protector we are wiping, not the actual handphone screen.

    B, ya, indeed very convenient! I do that all the time, sometimes even lick off whatever Aden/Toby left, LOL! Mummy's response, and like this we won't waste food ma, hahha xD

    C, nope, sure won't stop/slow the time but that's human's reflex, I bet all of us do that!

    D, or, we knock the remote control, wakakak! Or go twist the battery then try again :p

    E, eh I hardly do this, cause I just know which is clean which is worn, I am the only one doing laundry, sure won't make mistake one...

    F, I do that! It's a form of self relaxing, to me la! Hehe. Cause cannot find someone to talk to 24/7 ma! So just talk to ourselves lo! At least will feel better rather than just keeping it inside.

    1. I realised why I smell my laundry baskets or luggage clothes because my underwear or office uniforms are all same colours. Sometimes I accidentally mixed them up and smelling is the only way to guess which one has my sweat. Wakakaka

  21. Picture A

    Yes, I absolutely agreed with you! Sometimes you just do it without even thinking and the psychologist called this an act of the subconscious mind. Well, I also just encountered it just now when I was talking the home bus back. Due to habit, I walk straight to the bus that I used to take to work...hahahah..I quickly went down and walk to the actual bus.

    All these habits usually occured in the morning especially when you go to work or school. It's very natural, if you noticed it. You will automatically grab your towel or toothbrush or undies or whatever that you are used to, first thing in the morning.

    I also used to wipe my glasses with my shirt or rub my handphone screen against my trousers or my shirt to clean it. hahaha...

    We, human beings are habitual beings..don't you agree. Even the toilet when you want to do your big thing.... you find yourself auto-program.... like wiping the toilet bowl..err.. ok ok... no more details.

Running sure sweats alot. Even if we use phone while we are jogging. The screen sure is wet because of our cheek's sweat. Automatically we will rub on our pants pula... Emergency time where to find suitable things to wipe the phone wor?

    Oh, I did that in the past but not now la. It's kinda not hygienic. Of course there are times where I tempted to lick it especially when I had no tissues to wipe my fingers or hands.

    Perhaps I prefer to lick the ice-cream droppings off the cone, before it stick to my fingers or hands and caused a mess....hahahah...

    So, are you tempted for KFC now?

    1. If can try not to lick with fingers. My girl likes to lick after I pour the cake batter in the baking pan. If not lick my whipped cream after I whisk. The next time, I ask her to get a teasepoon instead. Or else everyone is tasting her saliva.

    Ah...Sean Connery... I thought you are talking about Bond. He's still the best around unlike that blond Bond with that f*ck up face....LOL. Luckily he's retiring from Bond.

    Yes, we do look at the clock or watch all the time when we are late and we can't do anything about that except more worries, panic and frustated. However, lately, I decided not to look at the clock if I am late for appointments or meetings. The solution is the well-abused Whatapps. Just informed the party that you are going to be late for XX no. of mins, get some scolding and close your eyes to take a nap. Don't even think about it and say sorry again when you entered the meeting room....muahahahha.. Oh, I mentioned Whatsapp is being abused cos don't you guys felt that your bosses or customers happy happy create Whatapps project groups? Well, I really hope this app is un-reliable or full of viruses someday. muahahhahaha....

    This is another habit that the manufacturers love it! They can sell you another remote control when its spoilt , due to that you press too hard or beat it onto your palm.Well, the latter method works sometimes as it causes the batteries to tighten up and electricity flows again...lol.

    I do whack it against my palm but also most of the time, took the batteries out and press it in again, in case they loosen up. Else, note down in my shopping list to get new batteries lor.

    Another habit is after pressing hard or whacking , some folks will throw the remote control onto the sofa. After that, when they cool down, they started to press again. Well, it works sometimes... hhahahha...maybe the batteries tightens up but still, it has to be changed soon.

    1. We will do this silly thing. Halfway at night you face this problem. For sure I piak piak the remote and press hard abit see it can works or not mar. Unless next time need to buy extra battery in the house. People tend to use the items they bought is worth the value they bought it. If ask me to go out buy battery... a bit sien liao. Or else close the TV and sleep early.

    ewww.... that's disgusting but errr.. I did that when my wifey not around. It's easier to identify the clean ones and the dirty ones especially if it is black. No need to smell close close la... slightly closer will do.

    Underwear also ... and especially the dark ones. Sometimes it's difficult to identify the clean ones, so, use your nose lor...muahahahahaha.....

    And, the list goes on .... drinking water, overnight food, unidentified objects (which could turns out to be insects or small reptiles shit), watch straps whether it's time to clean it, armpits and etc......

    How about smelling your own fart? Ok ok ...this sounds disgusting but then, it can tell whether your digestive system is healthy or not.... don't you agreed? lol

    I do talk to myself while at work, mainly trying to understand emails or concepts. Sometimes I do read it out softly and it do works. This is especially so when you tend to lost focus while reading dry emails.

    But most of the time, we do talk to ourselves regardless of what we are doing especially alone. We may not consciously aware of it but we do did that. For example, you are reading news, you may tell yourself to read the sports section first. Or, when you are stress, negative thoughts tends to cloud your mind and sometimes, you try to give yourself postive self-talks to feel better. Maybe self-talk like ..aiya, never mind la, just a small matter, they just kancheong... can't be bothered... I won't see or work with them forever in my life...etc.

    Most importantly, we have to give ourselves positive self-talks no matter what or it also helps to calm the mind and self but switching off like close the eyes and take a nap while breathing comfortably or listen to soothing music. I do that sometimes when I am stress.

      I often used tissues to wipe clean my spectacles everyday but many times they were not clear enough. Nothing beats using clean water and soap to wash the lenses of my spectacles. After cleaning, the vision would look so bright, colourful and clear!

  29. Habit is something that we usually do and didn't even realise is our habit. Because we keep doing it and tell people "I like it" lol. So true that everyone has their own habits. #1,#2,#3,#4 & #6 = ME except #5.
    A: I always have wet tissue with me in my bag. So once a while I used it to wipe my phone's screen if my phone kena any dirt. Then take a dry tissue to wipe it clean again. I think this way the screen is more clearer. So ma fan hor me. Unless you have the specific cloth to wipe the screen. It is called microbeta cloth? Or something not so sure. But will you bring that specific cloth with you? If got then id Okie. What if don't have just grab a tissue to wipe lo. It doesn't harm the phone screen. We are actually cleaning the protector screen - latest screen is tempered glass am I rite? There are still people using the normal screen just like laminate one. This we need to really clean the screen frequently. The screen easily gets faded and easily got stains. During emergency time, the nearest cloth that can use to wipe n clean our phone screen is the clothes we are wearing. And some just take the phone and rub on the pants and even sleeves. Macam2 one. Specs better don't take our baju to clean. Not suitable to clean our specs - baju and towels. They have tiny dirts and will scratch the specs.

    B: Finger licking good.Who want KFC???...hehehe. Lick with our fingers. At home ok lar but don't do if you're at the public. When I was a kid and so do my kids now. They will lick the thumbs and the index finger... like so yummy.
    I used to lick too but no more now. So #2 is my old habit. If I cook and bake, I still taste my food whether enough taste or need to add seasoning to taste with my ladies finger. Because I found index finger and thumb are very dirty.

    1. C: Haha this is very common. I look at the time when I'm rushing. How many times we look at tge watch also the needle will still ticking. When I look at it so I can estimate how much time I have and decide how long should I take to do one thing. This habit often happen to me almost everyday. Morning look at the watch while driving hopefully I have enough time to be at work. Yes wake up early rite? I do mar. Sometimes my girl kindie's teacher once a while will come late 5 to 10mins. Afternoon look at the watch again. Aikss not yet 12.30pm but actually afternoon my tummy will be my alarm. You know what I meant? Lunch time! Then when time to go back, I will look at the watch again because I want to cabut early... for fetching kids to tuition lor. Luckily I live in a small town easily for me to go around or else I will stuck in the traffic jam. Off work at 5.30pm, pick up son at 6.30pm. I have around 45mins to do some things after minus 15mins driving from work place to town. I will make use this 45mins to fetch my girl from my mom place. Sometimes go bank, buy baking stuffs, if not if got work to do in the office, I will stay in the office for another 15mins more. Very pack. Ok come bec... waiting for my son also I will look at the time. Luckily school's time always punctual but my son slowly walk come out and drag for abother 10mins(gone)...Then I drop him off for Kumon straight after school. Kumon doesn't take long the most also 45 to 50mins. Then look at my watch again see whether I got enough time to do a very quick groceries shopping at the shopping complex near by. Or else I will buy bread for the kids n hubby for tomorrow morning. Look at the time again so I can pick my son up from tuition scared if he finish early. If the lesson is easy my son will finish in 30mins only. I don't want him to wait so long for me. Scared he is hungry already. Ok pick him up and straight go home for dinner. I will always look at the time. But I want to work or get things fast before it times up that's all. Sometimes people tell me why I have time to do this and that. I told them actually I steal and chasing the time. Lol... I also train my son not to waste time. Times is precious that is why train them to wear watch at am early age at 5 like that. Hubby and I like watch. I feel unsecured not wearing a watch. Our watch usually is 5mins faster than usual.

    2. D:Also very interesting to talk about. We never thought of why we pak pak the remote control and also press even harder to button. Yes battery almost die. But sometimes it won't last very long one. Buy Eveready brand some more. I will take the batteries out, knock the battery each other and put it back and again hope it works again. Hope it to last another week too. Hahaha. Kiap siap to buy new battery. Even now the kids also follow the same point the TV and press harder. Logically is not the battery fault. Is the remote control itself. The button or the panel board its old enough and not sensitive anymore. So change the remote lor. Hehehe....

    5. Wow! Your comments are so long like a novel. I must learn how to write so well.
      This gives me a good idea to use the wet tissues to wipe the phone's screen instead of using my shirt and saliva to get them sparkling clean! Nobody knows this dirty secret of mine, so please don't ever borrow my phone. Muahahaha

      I had guessed well that most Chefs like you all would use the fingers to taste sometimes as that is fast and easy instead of looking for teaspoon always.

    1. Photo #1 - This happens so often that my phone's screen gets dirty. I always cleaned with my shirt's ends or hankerchief but I often needed some water to add on to completely wipe out the grime and stains.

      What happens when I had no water?? I used my saliva to add on la. Muahahahaha

      I often wondered why some phone users refused to paste on the extra protection plastic on their screen to give extra protection against cracking and getting scratches.

    2. Photo #2 - Wow! This is my childhood habit that survived till my adulthood today. I still lick my finger very often and felt there is nothing wrong or shy about it. Some times I would just dive my finger into a bottle of sweet and lovely kaya bottle to dig out a chunk to eat. So yummy like a kid!

      I think most blogger chefs here would agree that they used their fingers to taste so often without anyone noticing in their kitchens. It is so personalized to lick our fingers lah.

    3. Photo #3 - I am always fighting for time as my job is on the sales & marketing side. So I had to make appointments to meet clients around the city area and the traffic jams often drove me nuts and insane! I would be screaming and singing out loud while looking at my clock on the car's dashboard. That's when I had to text my clients using my mobile and gave excuses in the blame game.

      I agree that it is so silly to keep pressing the watch and look at the time when we could never change or stop the time when we are late. I had so much bad experience and learnt to be early and punctual to give myself lesser stress.

      The English proverb says that "Time & Tide Waits for No Man".....

    4. Photo #4 - I think this habit rarely happens as our battery tend to last at least over a year. But when that really happened, I would knock the remote very hard many times before pressing the buttons harder while aiming at the TV. I think it is true and silly to press harder when it would make no difference with just a light & soft press.

      I would often open up to examine the battery and pray for additional power by rolling the battery a few times before aiming at the TV to press again. How childish!!!

    5. Photo #5 - I have a washing machine at home but I still send my clothes to the 24 Hour Coin Machines outside as they have the clothes dryer which I do not own at home. I often had to do outside laundry when my ironing maid would be coming over to work.

      So at the laundry centre outside, I often see all the customers smelling their washed clothes just to make sure that the detergent was enough to leave a good fragrance.

      I think I always smelled the worn clothes when I unpacked my luggage after my overseas trips as they got mixed up with the unworn clothes. Why did that happen? My secret to carrying a small cabin bag was we sent our clothes to the laundry while staying at the hotels in Japan. So we had mixed clothes in the luggage lah.

    6. Photo #6 - Who doesn't talk to themselves?? I think I talked and sang often to myself when I was a lonely bachelor for a long time. This is healthy and normal to keep occupied lah. It also helps to reduce the internal stress but outsiders labelled me as a psycho man who talked to himself with both hands in action.

  31. Yes, I agree. There are some things that I keep doing repeatedly without really thinking of it.

    I recall I used to sigh a lot then one day my Bahasa Malaysia teacer says she noticed I sigh a lot. I tak perasan at all. Hmm…then on I tried to change.

    Also when I am reading I tend to “hum”. Tarak noticed too till some one pointed out to me.




    Hahaha….the length of your posts ah…. Biasa la….always short and consice but still have many point where readers can comment about. Okay now am looking forward to clicking on by one what is the 6 things that comes to your mind.


    I see the photo of the guy rubbing his shirt on his handphone…ya am guilty of that too…

      Yes am guilty of that too . bad habit. Also to wipe my specs with my t-shirt. But before that will breath onto the specs to “mosturise” it. Hahaha…hey…. Nothing wrong leh…my own germs my own specs…

      As for hand phone….tarak breath on it as it does not work. Yup tried before la. Hahaha…yucky hor. Anyway, sometimes it feels better than using tissue paper as tissue paper have “dust” . goes inside the corners of the handphone. Tarak good la.

      Also am too lazy to bring along the tiny cloth to wipe the handphone la. The cloth sure will drop and goes missing some where….although if at home it is still not ustilised.

      Well, I can pat myself on the back la coz at least I tarak put saliva on the phone screen than rub it wit my baju la. Betul tak? Have you ever put saliva on the phone screen and rub it with your baju? Hmmm…I bet there are people who have done that before.

      Yes am guilty of that too. Not only lick off the jam on fingers but also sugar . When cooking sometimes kena sugar. So will lick off. But of course not soya sauce la

      Ya I know it is not hygienic but short cut” ma. Big germs eat small germs lor. After all before spreading the jam and taking the roti, already washed hands la. Anyway there is no guarantee of anything being ever clean enough la. Those the we eat outside food also cannot guarantee germs free. We never see the condition of their kitchen . Maybe the lipas crawled pass on top of the plate that they put out roti and jam on and yet we did not know leh. Just close one eye lo.

      Anyway too clean also will get penyakit. Too clean then our body no chance to build up immune system. Small doses of “germs” will help our body to build up our immune system leh. Then next time eat apa also tarak takut lausai and run to the throne lo. No need sit on the throne for hours LOL

      Psss pss….when I make cookies…j will like the bowl of leftover batter. He siap ask me leave some for him to lick leh…especially those that have icing sugar. But he take a bit only then will be too sweet then don’t want liao.

      Yes I does that too . keep looking at the time when I am in a hurry. I know I cant make the time to go any slower but then still kan cheong la. I do not like to be late. After all another party will be waiting and wondering.

      Keep looking at the time I can also “threathen” j that I will leave him if he doesn’t hurry up hahaha

      So do you do that too? Keep looking at the time when you are in a hurry.

      Sometimes really geram especially when in a hurry to catch the parking meter time. then the person infront of you who is in the queue sampai the counter baru wanna start korek duit to pay for the groceries or something KNS…dilly dally then habis buta buta I have to pay one more RM for the parking.

      Pressing harder at the remote control when the battery is weak…yes…it does help for me …not harder but rather press senget a bit. Sometimes it will work…that is till the battery totally konk-out la.

      If pressing harder does not work then I open the back cover and move the battery a bit . that will work also leh.

      Coz sometimes tarak prepare battery in the house. So cannot put in new battery into the remote controller la. But most of the time is that too lazy to get my butt off from the sofa bor bed to go hunting for the batteries la. Am very disorganized punya. Battery simply hentam throw here and there. So wanna hunt for the battery ah…very the susah one leh. So always end up pressing harder la.

      Hey still remember the old days tricks ka? When batter habis, jemur the battery under the sun? Tht one I heard before but have never tried. But I gues it was the old days batteries kot. Now new alkaline battery doesn’t works that way. Terbalik might even explode leh. Betul ta?

      Hmmm….dod someone pissed you off by pressing harder on the remote control when the battery are weak? Or were you guilty of that too? Kakakaka confession time.

      Totally Ewwwwww…yucks….no way jose! Not doing that. It’s so yucky leh. Learn a new big word today olfactory. LOL….old factory? Playing big words wor.

      Anyway, back to the story. Hmmm…. Do you do that? Hopefully not gua. If you do, I really “fall specs” lor. You come across as a neat and tidy guy. Not they type that simply buka baju and throw on the floor. Clean and dirty baju mixed together. No way.

      For me, I use my eyes and hand to touch. If dirty baju can see that it is more ronyok(crumple) and the not as “crispy” as the newly washed and dried baju. Yes, newly washed and dried baju can be crumpled too but then when touched it will have a “Crisp” feel to it as compared to those that have been wore before leh.

      For socks a bit susah coz all socks are soft. Hard to differentiate . if I sees the socks on the floor, no matter clean or dirty I will throw into the washing machine to wash again la. No harm washing it twice rather than go smelling it to see if it is clean or dirty.

      If got dirty socks on the bed…someone will kena rotan kau kau liao. Already told him to put dirty baju and socks into the laundry basket. On the floor nevermind but if on the bed then siap la....

      yes i do that daily. hahaha in some website i read that it it the indication of a genius wor. kakakaka.....no la just joking only.

      yes, i do talk to myself when i am doing things like cooking. will be muttering next step have to add this or add that. It helps me keep track of what i am supposed to do next. Yes, i talk a lot about my pakai hentam recipe, but pakai hentam also have a method to it lor. so end up muttering like an nyanyuk granny in the kitchen lo. sometimes kept asking where is my salt...thought the salt is right infront of my eyes. no eye see.

      During my working time, every early of the month, i have to prepare reports for the higher management and each report have deadlines. End up muttering in the office trying to figure out which figure should sumbat to where. The superior also say Kathy sotplug liao talking to herlself. But the we all also like that la. Month end was a crictical time for us. Almost every one also can be seen talking to themselves in our office during overtime.Only those who kept quiet are consider insane LOL.

      Also i tend to keep asking myself "today is what day". Eg Monday tuesday wednesday or something. It's not that i do not know the day but it's just a bit of quirkyness. Cannot help it.

      if i am in the middle of an exciting chapter of a book i would even talk out loud telling the character to jiayoh or something similar.

      whatabout you, SK. You talk to yourself or not when designing this and that? Maybe talking out loud will clear ones thought better than trying to sumbat everything into the brain. Give a clearer picture and also writing out the draft too.

  32. Another habit of mine whenever I see pages of book crumpled, I will feel uncomfortable and want to straighten them and when I see typo errors, I will also feel uncomfortable and want to correct them

    1. This is very good habit indeed. I see too much paper in the advertising industry, all torn, crumpled and good ones. I realised I have turned a blind eye to this habit to straighten them.

  33. Picture A Actually this happened to me quite often but not so very often, guess we only realized how dirty the screen is when the sun light or any light that reflect from the screen.

    But from this I can think of the glasses, guess mostly people do is the glasses, right?? Besides the phone screen.

  34. Picture B Hmm, nope! I won't do this, I've a kind of OCD person, I felt so dirty to lick the finger, I rather take some time to for a tissue or water to wash my hand, hehe!

  35. Picture C This is what I need the most, as now I'm being in many position, but just the time not enough, actually can truly tell I find so hard to comment.

    PS: I don't feel that when I look at the watch, I do feel like stop the time anytime, oh yea! Maybe I wish to stop the time the most when I was stuck in the traffic jam.

  36. Picture D Actually this one is like common sense to us already. I used to do that last time, or shake shake it a bit. Like my wireless mouse, sometimes it doesn't function, I will like smash smash a bit then it got function back, until the moment it really doesn't work so I know that's the time to change a new battery.

  37. Picture e I definitely got to give a pass to this la. Since I can't smell, anything I just can predict myself. Which explained that I like to wash my clothes or anything very frequently just because I can't smell.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Picture F I almost do this everyday anytime, until my brother was like "who are you talking to?" Then I would replied "I talk to myself la!" Actually the reason I do so is because I hardly find somebody to talk to, and mostly those people around me is like they listen listen and pretend they're very concern then at the back the back step or whatever they like to do. So for my theory, in order to avoid that, I always choose to talk to myself rather than others, because others may betrayed you one day, but you can't betrayed to your own what.
