Why does it happen that most of things we look forward to so much never turn out to be as much fun as we thought they would? And why is it vice versa all the time? Do expectations reach that great heights that they become impossible to meet?

Btw, made my first foreign trip last week. Went to Penang and KL. Had a blast at the beach. Tried my hand at para-sailing, jet- skiing and the banana boat. Shopping at Kl was so confusing. I mean, I was so confused by the variety of things available that i ended up buying very little. But got my note book!!!!! An Acer Aspire 4720. A long cherished dream finally come true. And also a digital camera :-)

I know the 2 paras contradict each other. But I assure u that they are totally unrelated.

why...is that not the most difficult question to answer? i usually find it convenient to take refuge in the unknown...after all, we are but a speck. and so our expetations are but a teeny weeny bit of thought (energy?) as opposed to a cosmic decision. who knows wat that holds?

lotsa shopping huh? have fun! post more, now that u have a notebook abnd all.

PS: furstu bayangara shock enakku - enna da, malaysia varaikkum poi nottu vaanginennu solrangaleynu. acer lam pattu i figgered :P
