How Come Fish so Expensive?

I been trying to write a post since this morning but somehow, always either get interrupted or simply lost the inspiration to write. Really don't know what is wrong with me today. My brain does not know what my mind is thinking. Err..is there such a phrase? I am so spaced out actually that all I want to do is sit around and stare at things. Even now, my work desk look like a junkyard with lots of paper scatter around it. Frankly speaking, I am not sure what I should do first.

At the moment, the only thing that is on my mind is I just spend RM14+ on 1 slice of cod fish bought from Jusco. Babe lor, since yesterday been talking about wanting to eat steamed fish and not just any steamed fish. Must be those super nice expensive fish such as the white prompet or cod or something like that. Since no prompet can be seen at Jusco just now, I bought the cod fish and also 2 'parang' fish. Also bought some washed potatoes. Want to bake them in the oven tonight for babe supper or tomorrow breakfast.

Really don't feel like working today. Can actually feel as if the eyes are swollen and super heavy. SLEEPY!!!! I guess I should be happy because this week is a short work week, just 3days of work since Monday and Thursday is a public holiday here in Selangor. By right, I should be very happy. After all, last week was a 4day work day for me because I took Monday off. And next week also will be a 4day work day because I am planning to work from home on Friday. But I WANT TO GO HOME NOW!!!!

But I can't! Have meeting at 6pm with our US vendor. We can't ask them to schedule it earlier because it is only 5am at their side when we are 6pm. So, if we ask for even half hour earlier, it will be 4.30am their side! So, have to take it as it is lor. Hopefully it wont be a long one today and we can be done in 15minutes. Should be nothing much to talk about anyways unless they ask technical stuff. YAWN!!!! Thinking about it makes me SLEEPY!!!

Oh yar, MPH @ 1U also have good value buy sale. Not sure till when but the books outside the shop are mostly selling between RM9-19. I am happy because I bought a Stephen King hardcover book for RM19. I enjoy buying this kind of hardcover book at value buy. Somehow, it is just much prettier and more satisfying compare to buying paperback! Dont ask me why. I dont think I have the energy to explain much to you now.

I want to go and get the Twilight book by Stephanie Meyer. There is another Stephanie Meyer book on sale just now called The Host selling at RM61+. Too expensive for me... If it was selling at RM30-40, would not hesitate to buy it. But I am not very willing to pay more than RM50 for a book eventhough we can get tax rebate for them.

I think I am babbling nonsense now and babbling just for the sake of talking. Still blur and fuzzy in the head.....

I guess, everything is expensive now. Especially seafood cause it has been raining all these while. Fishermen couldn't go catch fish. hehe.
