Have You Ever Thought...

Have you ever thought that life is a continuum of struggles?

Pic by Ordinary Malaysian
The moment you were born, you were struggling for your first breath of life. And the moment you die, you struggle for the last breath of departure.

And they don't come free. You paid to be born, in the hospital/delivery charges. And when you die you or rather, your estate have to pay for the funeral charges etc.

Once you are born you grow up or rather, grow old. You don't grow young. And this cost money too.

You have to work to sustain your life. You marry and settle down, for most people anyway, and then you have children, for most people again. And this means more struggle.

And in between, life is no bed of roses, family life is no bed of roses, for most people again. Yes, there are moments when you smell the roses and you think you are in sixth heaven. I dare not say seventh heaven.

Then you grow up further, I mean you get older. And more problems.

And then you die, however rich or however poor you may be.

Silly, isn't it?

Have you ever thought...God or Godot or whatever got it wrong?

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
