Dude, where's your heart?

We are into the 6th day of the year and here I am, back to my dreadful routine, wide awake even at 6am.

When I made my yearly (same old) vow early last week, I could sense it was to remain a mere vow and all the pledges made are doomed to go right down the tube, like it has always been annually when we're only into our 1st gear on the new calendar.

The thing is, I’ve been chided and insulted for the current physical shape I’m in- to put it rather bluntly, super fat.

But who am I to disagree. Been helping myself on the food intake senselessly that the word diet sounds eerily frightful.

I mean, as much I feel the need to lead a healthier lifestyle, here I am sipping on sodas while puffing away my 3rd stick of the hour.

The least I could do now is to support the campaign against IJN’s privatisation from any money-minded corporate fuckers.

You just never know on this sort of things. Even those who are as fit as a fiddle are known to succumb to heart complications (read; Marc Vivien-Foe), what more to a person who has dinner in mind while digging on his lunch.

Nauzubillah, but it could happen to anyone, including yours truly. Painful enough that your heart goes bonkers, the last thing you need is to spend all your life savings to a heartless corporation, and eventually leaves a huge hole in your pocket.

*Now I feel the need to lepak with Mr Rajan more.

Awww that sucks. I hope things get better for you.

Hey, I don't think my ticker is in a good shape too and suddenly a Sime controlled IJN is no longer a soothing thing to hear.
Heard that all they wanted was the land IJN is on, not saving lives.

Bro, thanks for the support.

p.s. Can you send me your phone no please. Email to rockybru@gmail.com

Cut down on your ciggy. Save the money you will save on the ciggy for your health care. It may not be enough to pay the bills especially if the bills were to come from the new owner of IJN with the initials of SD. At least it will contribute a bit towards the RM39,950 that the Rakyat will have to cough out when the Gomen subsidize your expenditure (assuming the bill will come up to RM40,000).
Do you hear me?

anfield devotee said...

Brudder Kerp, its not lepaking you should be doing with with Mr Rajan . . .

akuani said...

kerpie I'm going to be meeting Rajan - making appt to get me life on the fitter trail :)) ...

senorita.. said...

mayb can start a bloggers' health club or smtg... n try to get some activities kicking..?

Kerp (Ph.D) said...


InsyaAllah, thanks. hope this year things will pick up.


Latest on it says they’re backing off from taking over. Finally some sense coming from their part.


No worries. And we won!

Pak Z!

Heard ya loud and clear, sir!

It did cross my mind earlier this month to cut, and who knows, eventually quit. But you know it wont be an easy task. My will power is never in good shape…hehehe…

Bala Ji,

Lepak to get more tips. But whether or not to put the exercise regime to good use is different matter all together.


Hehehe…true la. Mr Rajan is in for a tough time this year. He will have to put up with foodies, smokers, drunkards, couch potatoes and slobs…hehe…

Ms Lim,

Good idea, mr Rajan to lead the way. But I wonder what kinda activity. Exercises routine? Eeew…

senorita.. said...

hey, lose the eww! lol

Kerp (Ph.D) said...


no i dont. been meaning to activate my acc but believe it or not, time's not quite on my side yet. but no worries la, will sure to look you up once i got it activated.

Rajan said...

Wow... i am surprised to see my name being mentioned so many times here. I feel like a auper star. hahahahahahaaa

Anyway Kerp, yes i meeting akka soon to come up with a program for her. Please feel free to join if you free. It will be cool if we can get AD to join. heheheheheheehehe

Akuani: Tomorrow night around 7 OK or not? I might be able to meet you for a while. let me know.


anfield devotee said...

rajan: me thinks not . . .

Ridzzy said...

Nice of you to highlight this.
The issue was close to my heart, as my grandfather died peacefully in his sleep in IJN at the ripe old age of 92, and then just 4 weeks later my dad had a double bypass there too.
The suite was superb. I could have swore that it was a 5 star hotel in. (well superb minus the "kena kacau" at night according to dad)

So yea, Tak Nak to Sime darby take over!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...


You’re the only one with a 6-pack in here. No better guy to seek advice on than you…hehehe…

Would love to join you guys but me got some shit to dust off here la. Next time perhaps, over some scrumptious spread!


Now heart patients can rest well that SD decided to lay their hands off of IJN. The only sensible thing from their part since this whole take-over episode started.

On that kena kacau bit, tell me more when we lepak the next time.

Tinesh said...

Dude, I fully support you if you wana quit smoking. I dont blame you, cigarettes taste like shit these days.

Im not quitting tho :D

Btw, Sime already said they dont wana take over IJN. Dah la now itself the price is hitting the roof. If they take over then definitely hit the sky la

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

T man,

no bro, i aint quitting. not anytime in the near future tho. tried once but the willpower refused to pick up.

yes, i think you're a pathetic soul for endorsing the Israelis, murderer of innoceent human lives.

and on the selection of words i use, it was up to the blog-owner's discretion whether to let it off or otherwise. oh, and apparently he did!

By deleting my advice on ur comment section makes me really think u r a pathetic and stupid quad!

And that u dont face the reality of true challenge of thoughts and reasoning.

U always think u R RIGHT in whatever u said - that's pure ego. And it is this ego that makes the war of the world goes on.

U can continue to delete my comment, but at least u have read it (afterall, it doesnt matter whether other readers read this or not!)

Oi Kerpie,

You're not the only one struggling with a weight-issue. I'm hungry most of my waking hours (it's cold, that's my excuse ;)). So the word 'diet' doesn't exist in my vocab, either...
