All In The Timing

Well, here I am again at my desk at about a quarter pass 12 midnight in my room that severely needs a quick tidying due to a huge mosquito colony that keeps attacking me at night.

By the way, I just got back about two hours ago from Sheraton Penang watching a play my sister Adeline Ong was in. I will tell you more on that in a bit.

Today, I started my module 1 on my part time MCSE course. It is a very interesting module as when I complete it, I will be an expert Windows XP Administrator. The downside was that the course lasted 4 hours. However, it was something very typical for me to do as I want to get things done fast. Not always the smartest thing to do but I do try my best to get it done properly. I have yet to receive my complete set of books for my course which I have waited for roughly a month now.

After finishing my class, my mother picked me up and we headed for Sheraton. Since we knew the actress, we got the best seats in the house. Did I mention that there was a dinner buffet along? Well, it had the best mushroom suit I have ever tasted. Emmmmmm…..

Well, back to the play that my sister was acting in. It was another production by Penang Players called All In The Timing. The play was a combination of three mini plays called “Variations on the Death of Trotsky�, “Words, Words, Words� and my sister was acting in the last one called “Sure Thing�.

Sure Thing was about two people meeting in a café and was followed with numerous combinations of scenarios involving conversation and interaction before achieving the perfect ending of both falling in love. The scene required my sister to memorize scripts that I would have never been able to. If I did, I would have forgotten it on stage. She did amazingly well. Credits also had to be given to other casts and crew of the successful production.

I am so proud of her performance and can fully understand the effort and how serious she was with her acting. However, I felt that she could have done so much more abroad where the theatre scene is much bigger, hence the opportunity. Although one must say that the competition would be tougher but I rather place my money on her going abroad.

Well, I am starting to get my hands itchy now on a little bit of designing. I will continue the coding of my new company site due to re-launch in early February.

Till my next post, take care!
