I've been wondering lately, whether it's possible to love someone but not have the same "amount" of trust you once had for them. The conclusion I've come to is that, at least for me, they are mutually exclusive but it doesn't act like a switch where you can turn it on or off. It's like a dimmer; it fades away. Eventually, the relationship either becomes a business relationship, friendship or acquaintanceship if the two individuals are still together.

I was recently involved in the maintenance and furnishing of a holiday unit in a slow-paced island town. It's a first for me. I've never got to have input on the furnishing of a blank space so this was a great experience. We wanted a minimalistic modern space but had difficulty finding modern pieces that matched our tastes. In fact, because of the majority population on the island, a lot of the furnishings were catered to their tastes which we found was quite the opposite of minimalist and modern. In fact, we were thinking of bringing in our own fixtures, furniture and other things because things there weren't of great quality and design.

Having seen how "cheap things aren't good and good things aren't cheap" for myself, I've started to turn around about spending money for things. Of course, that's not to say that all things expensive must be good. A very simple example is the public announcement system that I see small scale events use. They have this portable speaker that doesn't sound good enough to wake your granddaddy from his nap; and one or two wire(less) mics. Sometimes, unfortunately, it's the only equipment they have. But imagine spending a little bit more on these things and you've gained a peace of mind with less misinformation and more efficiency. Check out the shure dual microphone wireless system for a start.

It's 88 days and 8 hours till my favourite time of the year! ..... CHRISTMAS! Even though I don't get presents like I used to when I was a kid, nor do we get snow here (which is fine since I freeze easily), it's the people and the FOOD that I love. Besides, the decorations really work for me. But in our household, there's not a lot of decoration going on. I think I'd want to do something different this year. For a range of decorative items that's sure to put you in the mood, check out christmasplace for department 56.

The guitar I mentioned in a previous post that my brother in law just bought, it's an Ibanez semi acoustic which he got for a very sweet price. This helps with Christmas shopping this year. Perhaps an affordable Lehle Effects Pedals at musician's friend. Or a hardcase guitar bag. Or an amp. Or a synthesizer kind of thing that lets you record tracks and loop them over and over again. Those sound pretty fun.

It really was just 15 minutes of fame. This douchebag is a real piece of work.

Ahbabovic’s long and colourful history in Malaysia BY SHAUN HO NEWSDESK@THESTAR.COM.MY

PETALING JAYA: Bosnian national Ervin Ahbabovic appears to have had his 15 minutes of fame on a number of occasions since 2006. He has been in the limelight for the wrong reasons, going by past news reports. One of the earlier reports was about his then wife, who complained to the MCA Public Services and Complaints Department that he held her and their two children against their will in Bosnia for two months.
Read more.

His story lasted 2 days and has now been pushed out of the limelight by REAL NEWS. Hallelujah.

The "B-I-L" (Brother in law) got a new guitar yesterday and with it, the tiniest capo I have ever seen. It looks about the size of a G7th Capo Company capo with a screw knob. It was cute and subtle. Speaking of tiny, there's the classic intellitouch tuner at m123 that's going for just under $30. I've been tuning my guitar by ear and sometimes I wonder how accurate the sound is. Maybe if I'd stop being so cheap and fork out $30, I'll be able to stop wondering.

Online business in Malaysia is booming. More and more youngsters are selling apparel, electronics and more on the web. Not only does this help spur the economy, it's a new market for the post office and national couriers and additional client pool for packaging suppliers. If you're selling products, you're going to need packaging for shipping. If you sold a toy, you're going to have to mail it to the recipient. This in turn plays its part to help people keep their jobs.
