Close Call

A few days ago, I was busy working in my home-office, when I heard a loud noise coming from our living room. It sounded like broken glass and my first thought was that our fluffy friends had knocked down one of our table lamps or picture frames. This has happened before so I took my time to finish translating one more paragraph before heading out into the living room to see what the commotion was all about.

What greeted me was totally unexpected and I think my jaw dropped open in disbelief for a full 10 seconds at the sight in the living room. Apparently, one of the hanging lamps in our living room fell from the ceiling, right onto the hard floor, narrowly missing our coffee table and shattered into a million tiny pieces - all over my coffee table, TV rack, carpet, sofa and everything else nearby!


Can you see the tiny pieces of glass embedded into my small carpet in the living room? Imagine how hard it was for me to remove them! I must have stared at the mess in my living room for a full minute before looking up at the ceiling. The chain that was holding the light was broken in two, which was how the lamp fell crashing down to the floor! Our three cats were just as shocked as I was. In fact, Phoebe was totally taken aback by the loud noise and immediately ran to hide!


After my initial shock subsided, I quickly put the kids inside their kitty condo (LJ and Sushi, now you can finally see my kitty condo!) as they were all very curious and were hanging around the coffee table, sniffing the broken glass. Although all three kids were none too happy at being locked up for the rest of the afternoon, I am really thankful that the lamp didn't fall on any of my cats, especially since they love lounging on the coffee table!

I spent the rest of that afternoon sweeping, vacuuming and mopping the entire living room, which I can tell you, was neither fun nor easy. I had to be really careful not to get myself cut in the process of removing all the teeny-weeny glass pieces that were strewn all over my living room.

We now have to start checking out new lamps to replace the broken one. The lamps in my living-room came in a pair and now, the other one, which is still hanging from the other end of the living room, looks really weird on its own. We're also worried about the other lamp; fearing that it might share the same fate as the first one. I'm especially worried because that area is where B's piano is located together with his work station. What if the other lamp decides to break and fall crashing to the floor while he's there?

Right now, we're contemplating getting a contractor or handyman to come over and bring down the other lamp, better to be safe than sorry right? The thing is, we seriously doubt any handyman will agree to come by just for the sake of removing that one lamp down from the ceiling since it's not worth the time or effort. We would need to give him more things to do, which basically means we need to do some major shopping soon! I'm thinking IKEA and I'm thinking this weekend since I'm truly and finally done with that huge project that had kept me away from my blog these past few weeks! I know it's only Monday but it seems that I already have our weekend nicely planned out. All I have to do now is inform B of my plans and hope he agrees! ;)

Wooow nasibnya tak timpa all the cute kucing tu deh!! ..setiap kejadian pasti ada sisi bagusnya...bagusnya dapat lampu baru!!! U are my top commenter...1000 ec waiting for U.

Farah Deen August 18, 2008 2:42 PM

oh wow! you always have stories to tell, don't you? and there are some serious disasters you encounter your way too!

just curious- what do you translate? :) Phoebe into hiding is so absolutely cute- I could just imagine how shocked she must have been. That's horrible. How can the chain break into 2?? Rusted? old? or just not strong enough? very dangerous, god forbid, but if it happens in my house and when the 2 kids are playing in the living room, it's very much a scary thought!

my god- cleaning those tiny bits of glass must be hell! be extra careful to make sure there's no hidden pieces embedded in the rug.

and yes, it's a good idea to remove the other one too- first because it might also break and secondly, because it doesn't match with the coming new one. oh, another reason: we love IKEA! LOL

eastcoastlife August 18, 2008 3:48 PM

OMG! That is so scary! Hope the kids don't have nightmare.

What a co-incidence! You finished a big project which means there's going to be sounds of kaching-kaching! hehe.... Time to shop, baby!

LadyJava August 18, 2008 4:12 PM

OMG!!!! That's is so scary!!! Eh I really think you need to mandi bunga or something lah.. from the jumping incident to the fire and now this.. Astaga.. nasib baik no one was hurt.. my kitties love to lounge on the coffee table too...

Eh no warning ke?? suddenly fell is it?? is the incident that day you were telling me about?? OMG I am still in shock myself!

Poor Pheebs!! And hey.. love the kitty condo.. but Pheebs look upset in there lah...heheh

Emila Yusof August 18, 2008 4:16 PM

Marzie!! I'm so shocked to read this! That was scarily dangerous! Lucky you and the cats are safe!! Better replace both lampu since dah not so nice the other lampu sorang2 hanging there. Find lamps without chain, I think it's better for safety purpose.

Nick Phillips August 18, 2008 4:51 PM

Good Gosh! Good thing no one was hurt in the incident. And lucky your little kitties were not in the way of that falling lamp. I'll bet it was that no good genie king trying to steal more lamps for his magic lamp collection that caused it ... LOL!

Oh and by the way, that darn no good Spiff just tagged you. I tried to stop him, really I did but he was simply way too strong for me ... hehehe ...

Emila Yusof August 18, 2008 4:55 PM

Lupa nak cakap, nice kitties condo! Kesian nengok Phoebe...so ketakutan.

maiylah August 18, 2008 4:55 PM

oh my goodness!
glad to know that no one was hurt ...

Nessa August 18, 2008 5:13 PM

That was a close call indeed! Nasib baik neither you nor your cats were nearby when your lamp crashed!

But the best part is an excuse to shop at IKEA :D I haven't been to IKEA for a while now... hmmm, should I plan a visit this weekend.... hehe

Empty Streets August 18, 2008 6:40 PM

Am sure B will agree :) hehehe good to know your alright and so are the kitty cats. Ikea is the best furniture and do it yourself shop around wish that was here in the phil... sigh hehehe Glad your oki too hahaha guess you had more household chores to do this day. :)

Rozella August 18, 2008 7:08 PM

OMG! So teruk! :( Luckily nobody got hurt!

Btw, I'm back and the pics are up!

Mariuca August 18, 2008 7:36 PM

Hola Bono, thank you for being my first commenter YAY! :)

Ooooh tulah, nasib baik tak kena my fluffy friends kan? I was too shocked to notice my cats at first, until they all started coming out from their hiding places!

Wah wah 1000 ec come to me!! :):):)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 18, 2008 7:39 PM

omg, marzie!! that was a narrow escape. I meant considering that your kitties love lounging around yr coffee table. Poor pheebs, she looks in shock. *patting pheebs*

thank goodness, you nor B were not anywhere near the table during the unfortunate incident. Macam mana boleh jatuh ar? Must be the previous contrator never install properly. ><

wow, B's piano? You meant he plays? omg! That's something new to me!! Does he really play?

IKEA has a few nice hanging lamp that i like. Mine was also from IKEA. haha, you see, again IKEA is in our conversation. When u & B are there this weekend, remember to ask for a VIP card, k! lol! :)

Happy Shopping & I'm really glad that no one was hurt. :)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 18, 2008 7:40 PM

oopss, i forgot to mention about the kitty condo. It looks so big and comfy! :)

Mariuca August 18, 2008 7:42 PM

That's why la Farah! I also don know what's wrong nowadays, but hopefully this will be the last unfortunate event headed my way. :)

Oh that time I was working on my Annual Report project. I had to translate the entire thing from Eng to BM, tu yg sibuk semacam these past few weeks. Actually even before my Bandung trip dah start work on this project. ;)

Oh yeah, Phoebe was shocked, so cute and kesian at the same time. Good thing her brothers quickly came to her rescue and comforted her LOL!!

The light is not old, cause we bought it less than 3 years ago, when we moved in here. But the chain that was holding the lampu, broke in half, dunno why!!! And good thing I wasn't happily lazing around on the sofa, or not for sure kena I sikit! Thank god yeah?

Ish, satu hal pulak kemas the broken glass Farah! Until now, I'm using house slippers in the living-room, just in case I missed out a piece or two..cause it was like all over!! And susah to see against the white floor. Anyway, thanks so much for ur concern and I'm happy to see u here today! :):):)

Mariuca August 18, 2008 7:44 PM

ECL!!! Watch me shop away like there's no tomorrow la he he he!! Eh but ka-ching belum masuk mah, must wait first for the full shopping spree, this weekend have to limit to necessities only, yeah right! ;)

Mariuca August 18, 2008 7:48 PM

LJ!!! Yes dearie, this was what I mentioned to u hari tu... so now can u understand how shocked I was that day? Cause takde hujan takde ribut, alih-alih je CRASH!!!! I was like what's going on here?? Some more had to take the rest of the afternoon off cause had to kemas before org terpijak kaca kan? So I couldn't get much work done that day either. Sigh...sabar je la. One after another, testing me ni, but I think I've been well-tested oredi, so it's time to gimme some good stuff la pulak kan?

Pheebs mmg tak suka masuk the kitty condo. We only recently moved her in there, before this she had her own place, a smaller home. :):):)

Mariuca August 18, 2008 7:51 PM

Hi Emila! Oh that is exactly what we're planning to get, lampu takde chain this time. I really hope the handyman will come over and remove the other lamp, now we are living in fear, esp me! :(

Ah tu la, pity Phoebe but her brothers, esp Chubbs berani! Still nak main kat the broken glass, that's why I had to put them in their condo while I cleaned up, which took me hours to do so btw!! :(

Mariuca August 18, 2008 7:53 PM

Yeah Nick, we were all lucky. If I had not been in my office, I would've been happily lounging on my sofa watching TV when the incident happened!

Oh ha ha ha!! Could be GK yeah? Using his invisible power to fly to my place and steal my lamp, no wonder I haven't seen the fella for ages, hiding is it? LOL!!

Wah another tag so soon after the other one? Okay, I'm game! Thanks Spiffy! :):):)

Mariuca August 18, 2008 7:54 PM

Thanks Maiylah! We're all glad that no humans or kitties were hurt in this incident. Must be more alert after this, you never know when an accident might happen right? :):):)

Mariuca August 18, 2008 7:58 PM

Hi Nessa! So happy to see u here after so long! :)

Yes, nasib baik everyone is safe and sound, even the kitties. Now I have to make sure they don't lepak near the other lamp, just in case!

He he...me too dah lama tak visit IKEA! I bet there are many new items just waiting for me there, which is why I must go for a visit he he! Eh you too should go la woman, spend some of that money you've been making online lol! :):):)

Mariuca August 18, 2008 7:59 PM

Hola Metz! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I am happily waiting for B to come back from work to inform him of my IKEA plans he he! ;)

Oh yeah, that day I was in such a bad mood, cause had to do extra housework LOL! So that meme came at the right time too huh? :):):)

Mariuca August 18, 2008 8:01 PM

Hi Rozella, you're back! And I have yet another "exciting" episode to share with you guys! ;)

I've seen your pics sweetie, looks like u had a super duper time and going off again next week right? Have fun! :):):)

Mariuca August 18, 2008 8:13 PM

Jean! Tell me abt it! And it had to happen when I was at my busiest! Tensi you know had to stop work, and clean up the mess, which was very difficult to clean too! :(

Well, we'd like to blame the contractor but apparently, it was the chain on the lampu that gave way, broke in two and the lamp came crashing down! I don't know if I'm just imagining things but right now, the other one (that's still hanging) seems to be pretty crooked to me too! ;)

Oh yeah!!! B plays piano by the ear, which always amazes me! I'll force him to play my songs la, but ikut mood it seems! He can play the Dewa song on the piano you know? Sigh... I love it when he plays the piano, so romantic! Thanks for noticing the piano bit Jean he he! :):):)

That's why la, baru mention IKEA at ur blog, now it looks like I have to go this weekend LOL! I am going to use my IKEA Friends Visa card of course, collect points!

Oh yay! Thanks for the condo comment too. About a year after we bought this one, another one came out, even bigger but also more expensive. So this one will have to do for now! ;)

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives August 18, 2008 9:12 PM

Mariuca,
You were supposed to have a RELAXING weekend! Glad everyone (except the lamp) is OK...the same thing actually happened to my friends Susan and Mike about three years back...except it was their 4-year-old daughter swinging from the chandelier!!
Roxy

Congrats on finishing your big work project...did you have a nice dinner with B?

Roxy

phatelara August 19, 2008 1:16 AM

Marzie! Thank God no one got hurt! I hate it when I break glass items too, so difficult to clean.

Wah, looks like you're going shopping this weekend eh? Oh ya the kitty condo is a real condo! Huge! Poor Pheebs looks cute in her hideout, though. *hugs kitties*

Laura August 19, 2008 3:56 AM

OMG! That would've scared the crap out of me. I'm glad no one got hurt!

LadyJava August 19, 2008 4:44 AM

GP.. good idea to put on the house slippers.. you never know right?? ish i cannot imagine it actually falling on any of the kitties or you or B! Ngeri nya.. mintak simpang kan!!

Enjoy your shopping spree ya.. and yelah replace both.. just to be on the safe side..

B and A can jamming lah.. heheh.. I also love it when he plays his guitar.. ahhh.!!!

eh Debbie said in my blog.. I got A, you got B and she got C (Colin)..lolzz.. funny kan?? heheh

Athena August 19, 2008 6:14 AM

Wow! You should write a letter to the manufacturer! Someone could have been seriously injured (and I'm glad no one was!!!). Have fun shopping!

Mariuca August 19, 2008 10:35 AM

Morning Roxy!! OMG...how did that happen, as in how did the 4-yr old even reach the chandelier eh? I hope nobody was hurt in your incident too!

Yeah...you know how all these "exciting" things just love to creep up on me when least expected! :( But I am not going to worry abt it now, cause all I wanna do right now is relax and enjoy the sweet freedom and joy of finally finishing my project yeeha!!! :):):)

Mariuca August 19, 2008 10:38 AM

OMG indeed Laura!! I was stunned into silence for a whole minute, like what??? Anyway, I'm glad too that nobody was hurt, thanks for dropping by! :):):)

Mariuca August 19, 2008 10:40 AM

Tu la pasal LJ! Pity my kids if it did fall on any one of them kan? I pun tak leh imagine ni, alhamdulillah! :)

Alamak, yeah la...we have the first 3 aplhabets goign on here, some more in order of age kan? He he he!!

Kalau nak jamming, nak main lagu apa ye? B loves jazzy stuff. Azwaj how? :):):)

Mariuca August 19, 2008 10:42 AM

Hola Athena, it's nice to see u again! I thought of that, but with the other stuff going on in my life right now, I just don't have the time or the patience to write and wait for their response. Furthermore, we bought the lamps like 2 years back and I don't even have the receipt anymore, to trace the manufacturer and such. But, the good news is that nobody was hurt, thank god! :):):)

Mariuca August 19, 2008 10:45 AM

Meow! Thanks for the hugs Debbs! I had the most difficult time cleaning up the mess, in fact I'm pretty sure I missed a spot or two. That's why must wear slippers at home now.

Oh yeah the kitty condo is very comfy and spacious but my kids still tak suka if they're in there for too long. But when they're naughty, for sure kena send to the condo he he! ;)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 19, 2008 11:50 AM

morning early bird! :)

I'll surely feels frustrated if i were in yr shoe. Ppl already busy, then want to add works to it somemore. ><

hehe, if it was the contractor's fault then can throw tantrum at him mah. :P It's so dangerous lar with the other one still dangling. You guys must be worried sick.

yea, must faster go IKEA and change the lamp already. oh, marzie, we use IKEA friends card too! hehe.

marzie!! im so amazed that B's playing piano, and somemore Dewa song! so romantik lar. :) I can imagine you, all smiling while gazing at him in the eyes as he plays the Dewa song for you. :))

Martin can sing very well, and when he sings love song and look at me in the eyes, my heart just melts away. ahh.... :))

LadyJava August 19, 2008 12:04 PM

Oh Azwaj is a rocker ...lolzz... but jazz pun ok kot...lolz

bonoriau August 19, 2008 12:10 PM

Mariuca August 19, 2008 12:14 PM

Morning Jean! Yeah la, he he he exactly! Ppl oredi so busy, wan to tambah housework to the list, how not to tensi right? ;)

I am I am worried Jean! Right now, the only thing I can think of is to put something underneath the other lamp, so we put this big cushion, just in case. Cause got no carpet there kan, if the other one decides to fall (touch wood!), at least ada lah something to cushion the blow, otherwise, I dunno what to say la! :(

Jean, me too amazed la at B's piano playing skills, that's why I bugged him to get the electric piano ha ha ha!!! He can also play my other Indonesian song, which I love...by Samsons woo hoo! :)

Wah Martin can sing? Then he should be the one entering Malaysian Idol he he he! Faster la do recording, then I can see M in action LOL! :):):)

Mariuca August 19, 2008 12:16 PM

Wah wah rocker ye? No wonder la jiwang tulis surat cintan kat LJ masa courting dulu he he he!! Eh we also do rock here! :):):)

Mariuca August 19, 2008 12:22 PM

Morning Bono!! Ah first time u dapat first commenter here, syabas! ;)

My kitties are okay, although the grey one demam sikit hari ni! :(

The kitty condo is 3 tingkat je, but so far I've not seen any with more than 3 tingkat. Kalau ada, for sure I dah lama consider buying he he he! :):):)

Oh good idea, I'm actually planning to save my money for the big getaway we're planning, hopefully in a couple of months. We'll have to check our schedules first of course, cause this one will be for like a week or so YEEHA!!! :):):)

Emila Yusof August 19, 2008 4:36 PM

Mariuca August 19, 2008 5:35 PM

Debbie! Oh B memang la kecomelan he he! But I have to work harder at looking young since he has a baby face kan? So must keep up with the fella! ;)

What? U mean to tell me C is older than 30? CANNOT BE LA!!

LadyJava August 19, 2008 6:08 PM

eh yelah why are our men all kelihatan kecomelan kan.. I also got to work hard to not look older.. nasib baik awet muda gak....lolz!!

Don't know lah Debbie.. i think he looks young but actually older than he looks..lolz.. am i wrong?? hehhe..like B.. he looks like in late 20's kan.. but actually 35 already.. semua awet muda...lolz

Kim August 19, 2008 8:05 PM

omg Mariuca...
this is so strange!!!
the same thing happened to me in our dining room a couple of months ago....and the heavy glass shade fell down and hit our glass dining room table and smashed to smithereens..
I was about 2 feet away and the glass landed all around me...
we were all so lucky that we weren't sitting at the table!!
it seems the builders 'forgot' to screw the fittings in properly...

you and your kittys are soooo
lucky too that you didn't get hit....
that makes 3 !!!
I'm hoping you don't have any more catastrophes at your place.. :0

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives August 19, 2008 8:37 PM

Back to drop off my RDH EC on Tuesday morning from the beach...I'm hoping to get Roxy's Best Of up and running on EntreCard this week.

See you soon!

Roxy

Imelda August 19, 2008 9:50 PM

Poor cat traumatized by the fall. Wow, sis uv lost a treasure for that. But sis, be consoled that no one was hurt in the process.

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives August 19, 2008 10:04 PM

Hi GP...here for a quick request for a visit...no one has taken up your BOTB challenge yet, but I'm up against Sir Jello... wink wink nudge nudge.

Roxy

LadyJava August 19, 2008 10:36 PM

Ha ha ha!! LJ, yes, all our men are kecomelan tak terhingga! Kita ni yg kena awet muda LOL! Wah wah B in late 20s...tak leh jadi ni! ;)

Mariuca August 19, 2008 11:01 PM

OMG Kim!! I'm actually getting goosebumps reading your comment! A close call for you too huh? You know, when I wrote this post, I tried to "make light" of the situation cause I didn't really want to admit that this makes 3...but you're so right and I have been REALLY lucky these past few months! Looks like I really need to take another vacation SOON! Thanks for sharing Kim! *HUGS*

Mariuca August 19, 2008 11:05 PM

Hey Foxy Roxy! Thanks for taking some time from ur busy beach day to drop your EC here. Also looking forward to having RBO at EC! :)

Ooooh I voted for u dear, but Sir Jello seems to be pretty strong today! Let me know if u're on another BOTB and I'll hop over okay? :):):)

Mariuca August 19, 2008 11:07 PM

Imelda, it's so nice to see u here today and thanks so much for the comforting words. I'm glad too that no humans or kitties were hurt in this incident. *HUGS*

Mariuca August 19, 2008 11:09 PM

LJ! Thanks for the vote sweetie, hope I'll win, but if I don't...at least I dapat "Christian Troy" today he he! :):):)

Mariuca August 19, 2008 11:10 PM

Ooooh Bono, side by side dengan Emila gitu, thanks yeah! :):):)

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives August 19, 2008 11:34 PM

Boo hoo, we both lost our BOTB...and I stepped away to wrap up our family reunion and didn't even get a chance to vote for you!

I'm back at my computer and will vote if you join another battle.

Roxy

Roxy

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives August 20, 2008 1:34 AM

Back to drop off my Roxiticus Best Blogs EC...only 5 votes left in both of our battles, I have a good feeling!

Roxy

P.S. -- Getting closer to having Roxy's Best Of up on EntreCard, I'll try to let you know exactly when so you can be one of my first "advertisers." Lisa, my blog designer, is making me the hottest little EC square.

phatelara August 20, 2008 2:44 AM

GP, I voted! Your battle has ended, I hope you won!

I must agree with LJ, B looks like he's in late 20s lol! Early 20s pun I pcaya! :)

I should have a contest kan? Guess my bf's age! Lol! (I'm seriously thinking about it lol!)

Roxy's Best Of... August 20, 2008 3:02 AM

My very first Roxy's Best Of... EC drop on Mariuca...I don't have my pretty card ready yet, and the widget is not up and running on my blog yet...but soon!

Congrats on your BOTB win!

Roxy

Kim August 20, 2008 9:06 AM

haha Mariuca...
a 'light' vacation sounds like a must for you ..
have a lovely day :) :)

Sushi August 20, 2008 12:10 PM

Yipee GP! I'm on the Mariucan's list again! Oh, what a daunting task to clean all the micro glass pieces from the floor and so dangerous too. Poor Pheebs, hiding, so cute! Ikea rocks! They have some stuff for Mom & Dad and for me too. Have fun shopping with B! And thanks for sharing the kitty condo, I loved it, very comfy.
PS: Better replace the other lamp too. Woof,woof!

Roxy's Best Of... August 20, 2008 1:06 PM

Hi Genie Princess...almost bedtime but I wanted to drop off my shiny new Roxy's Best Of... EntreCard, I'm on a roll!!

Roxy

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 20, 2008 1:38 PM

smart move, woman! hopefully the lampu will behave lar and hang on till u've replaced it. :)

hehe, B's so loving lar, playing all yr fave songs.

sometimes out of the blue, i'll ask martin to sing my fave song, but he duwan to sing. He said he will sing when the moment is right. :P apalah dia? "moment is right" kononnya. geram saya!! it makes me crave for his song even more.

haha.. yeahlar, if he sing, im sure can masuk final. hehe, over-praising lar tu. :P apa boleh buat. i love his voice. :)

eastcoastlife August 20, 2008 3:09 PM

Pure Persian!? Is it expensive to buy one and it requires more care like special food and needs aircon room? How often do you groom Fluffball. I'm thinking of getting one. It's so cute! hehe....

J@n!ce August 20, 2008 3:55 PM

That's so dangerous. Luckily no one was under the lamp during that time. I always have a phobia of those dangling lamps, it cannot help getting more worried now seeing the accident over at your place. Make some noise at the contractor to get him working.... LOL :):)

Empty Streets August 20, 2008 4:51 PM

You should take a picture of your new furniture and new lights :) We'd love to see the change :) hehehe and probably of your handy man hehehehe. am having a lot of issues with my current ISP provider this week huhhu, cause of the Typhoon. Please pray that everything will be ok soon. huhuhu

bonoriau August 20, 2008 5:16 PM

wooowww Lost again my bid deh!!

Hapi August 20, 2008 5:48 PM

Gain up to 600 visitors in a day for just one message here.

LadyJava August 20, 2008 6:29 PM

Hi Sweetie!!
Am on my LJL rounds now.. wah your PW very high already lah.. cannot afford..lolz!!

Farah Deen August 20, 2008 9:54 PM

GP,
wow?!!!! You could translate English to BM? Your BM must be superb! I am not saying I can't speak BM, I scored A1 in SPM pun, but I can't even write a good letter in BM easily anymore. LOL

hmmm maybe the rain tak kuat la kot right? might as well change the other one as well, maybe the make of the chain is of poor quality.

and yeah, be careful especially on the carpet. and whenever you are sitting under the lights, wear a protective suit. heheheheh

Matthew S. Urdan August 20, 2008 10:20 PM

Hey Mariuca....

Let's see....

1. Fires
2. Bodies falling from windows
3. Lamps crashing to the floor...

I think you need to look into the possibility of moving rather than finding a handyman, but that's just me.

Cheers!

Karen & Gerard Zemek August 20, 2008 11:28 PM

That sure is a good thing your cats didn't get hit! What a mess you had! I call Handyman Connection for everything--no job is too small or too big for them to handle. You may want to look them up to see if they're in your area.

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives August 20, 2008 11:39 PM

Too many blogs, too many blogs, I've let Jean get ahead of RDH on commenting. I'm here on Wednesday morning to drop off Roxiticus Best Blogs...looking for a battle on BlogExplosion, so please stop by if you see me there.

BlogExplosion rejected Roxy's Best Of...said it wasn't a blog...I'll have to see if I have any luck communicating via a service ticket, I think I waited 6-9 months for an answer last time I submitted a ticket!

Roxy

Mariuca August 21, 2008 12:25 AM

Hi LJ! Thanks for voting for me last night, I won the second time around YAY! Must be all the crossed paws and the woosh woosh! ;)

I'm done with both rounds oredi, now settling down to answer comments! Hey, MPG still cheapo mah, 3 sen je he he! :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 12:29 AM

Roxy!!! Thanks so much for all ur comment love here sweetie! I was too late in booking a spot at RBO, but will be on the lookout for when ur price drops a little! ;)

Wow, u have your own blog designer, how cool is that? And yes, I will def check out BE for ur battle, since I missed last night's one.

Oh no! RBO got rejected by BE? I seriously don't know what it is that they define as BLOG! Now, I'm having second thoughts abt resubmitting MPG so soon, will give it another month I guess. SIGH!!!

Oh don worry dear, you're still at number 3, and pretty darn close to Jean he he! :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 12:32 AM

Hola Debbs! Thanks so much for the vote, I won the second BOTB, first one kalah he he!

Oooooh you should definitely consider having a C contest, but will he be okay with it? ;) Wah...dapat hadiah apa ni? :)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 12:33 AM

I agree Kim! A light vacation is topmost on my priority list right now! :)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 12:36 AM

Hey Sushi! It's great to see your fluffiness here today LOL! :)

Oooops, looks like you've been knocked out of the Top Mariucans list again, hurry and comment away before the month is up! :)

So you see my "kitty condo" now..it's spacious and comfy..but cats will be cats and they much prefer to roam around freely. Anyway, it's good to have for when I don't want them to disturb me, like when I had to clean up this mess for instance! MEOW MEOW! :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 12:42 AM

Aloha Jean! ;)

Oh B is the same way too...mesti ada mood, boleh?? So Martin can masuk final?? Wah wah...he must be superb, please record him one day and show me okay? Would love to hear your M sing something romantic to u he he!!!

Oh are u happily commenting away at Emila's now? I couldn't see Emila's page earlier in the evening, and then got caught up with some work. Will check on you there later, if ya know what I mean! ;)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 12:49 AM

Hi ECL! Fluffball is Phoebe's new nickname LOL! Most Persians are expensive, mixed Persians are slightly cheaper. I got Phoebe for slightly under RM1000. Initially, she was priced at RM1300, but of course we bargained la he he...so got her for slightly cheaper.

She eats Royal Canin only. And wet food of course. But Friskies and Whiskas are a no-no, according to most vets, for Persians that is. We try to send her for grooming whenever she gets too comot, maybe every month or so.

I can't wait for u to get a cute Persian kitty!!! I tell u, they are stress relievers la! Just hug one of my cats and all my stress will disappear! :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 12:51 AM

Hi Janice! Awesome that you're here today, I've missed seeing u here! :)

Oh I'm never gonna get hanging lamps after this, once beaten twice shy mah! Still looking for a suitable contractor to do the job. Hopefully the light store will supply us with some names. :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 12:52 AM

Hi Metz! Sorry to hear abt ur ISP and the Typhoon! Hope all is okay with u in Manila? Take care and I'll drop by for a visit later. :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 12:54 AM

Bono! You advertise 2 slots kat Emila, wah wah! I ambik satu he he! And now Emila is here at Mariuca's, one big friendly circle LOL! :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 12:57 AM

Hi Hapi, thanks for the link and have a good day! :)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 1:01 AM

Hi Farah! Of course can, that's one of my tasks of being a copywriter, translate from Eng to BM and vice versa! ;)

YAY! I oso got A1 for BM he he! I tell u siapa yg tak dapat A1, sayang sangat! BM was actually one of my fave subjects in school, together with Eng Lit. I'm kinda used to writing in BM now cause it's part of my job kan, but I still much prefer to write in Eng somehow.

Ha ha protective suit? Hmmmm, must think where to get one now, oh and a helmet of course LOL! :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 1:05 AM

Hi Matt! Long time no see! :)

TRUST ME, if I had a choice I would move out in a jiffy. Unfortunately, we would need to let go of this condo first before we can do that, you know...money-wise! So we're STUCK for now...and it is not making me feel good at all! :(

Mariuca August 21, 2008 1:07 AM

Hey Karen! Thanks for stopping by Mariuca's blog! Oh Handyman Connection sounds superb, but...we are not privileged enough to have them here I guess! Will continue my search for the perfect handyman! :):):)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 1:45 AM

Can you believe I'm still on my LJL round.. connection sucky gila at A's office...

But I'm home now!! Yihaa!

Still 0.03 is it.. lolz.. ok nanti i check eh...

Mariuca August 21, 2008 2:03 AM

Alamak ye ke? Lambat gila tu LJ! I'm happily gonna watch Boldie soon YAY! Ah MPG still cheapo, faster come LOL! Eh, I hope I'm still safe and sound at LJL, so far takde email so phew! :):):)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 2:16 AM

Mariuca August 21, 2008 2:21 AM

LOL! I'm so glad I joined PW, can make some ka-ching plus like Bono said, mcm stock market jadinye he he!! ;)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 2:28 AM

Mariuca August 21, 2008 3:02 AM

Best gils and YAY I'm back at LJL! Expired it seems my last ad lolz.. :)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 3:08 AM

Mariuca August 21, 2008 3:17 AM

Of coz! I shall try my best to maintain my spots there ha ha! Sape lagi kita boleh bid ni? ;)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 3:26 AM

lol!!! GP!! kelakar lah you.. and thanks for the fun dear..lolzz!!

Mariuca August 21, 2008 3:35 AM

He he...am getting hooked on PW looks like it, tu la...introduce lagi kat I! Eh but actually kan, I yg tanya u pasal PW kan? LOL! ;)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 3:59 AM

yelah.. you were the one who asked...lol!!

Mariuca August 21, 2008 4:14 AM

Tu la...terforgot! ;) But I'm glad I asked and aren't u glad to have a buddy-buddy at PW? ;)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 4:24 AM

oh yeah babeh... seronoks the very very....lolz!

Mariuca August 21, 2008 4:36 AM

LJ!! Now we are side by side at Emila's lolz... u outbid Bono ye? ;)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 4:41 AM

yelah so we can be together-gether online.... heheh... sshhh.. he's still awake you know..lolzz!!!

Mariuca August 21, 2008 4:43 AM

Ha ha ..okay...shhhh...Bono oso night owl ke? ;)

LadyJava August 21, 2008 4:56 AM

Yeah Bono is still awake.. watching football it seems..

Tammy August 21, 2008 5:29 AM

Cute kitties! Sorry about your lamp!

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives August 21, 2008 8:41 AM

Genie Princess...
I think Matt's right...the signs (fires, falling bodies, kittycats swingin' from the chandeliers) seem to point to a move in your future instead of a handyman...I bet LadyJava has just the right place in Vegas or wherever the most $$$ paid posts say you should go...and there's always room in your choice of the Roxiticus Valley or the beach in Bay Head!
Roxy

YummY! August 21, 2008 10:42 AM

Oh wow! Glad to hear no one was hurt!

bonoriau August 21, 2008 12:26 PM

Woow USD0.40..this consider one of the most expensive place to BID ..heee.

Sushi August 21, 2008 1:43 PM

Oh man, I was happily celebrating to be back as a top Mariucan and then, what happens? Anyway, it's kinda late here but I have sooo much stuff to catch up. I'm working on this CD with pictures of my relatives' visit so I can send to them on their TV, but it looks like the CD doesn't play on my DVD player. I hope it works if I use a DVD-R instead of a CD-R. I'm not that great with all that stuff, if you know what I mean... nite, nite,( morning!) X

bokjae August 21, 2008 2:13 PM

Glad that you are ok!!!! Anything can break but you must not break! Thank God! Must be a poor electrical fixing job!

eastcoastlife August 21, 2008 2:24 PM

I checked with two pet shops near my place, no Persian kittens. Might have to ask around.

I want a kitten like your Fluffball! haha... nice nick for her. :)

Drunken Dragon August 21, 2008 3:53 PM

Nice post.

I like your blog. I'm looking a unique blog for my blogroll. Would you like to xch4ng3 link with me? thank you

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 21, 2008 4:52 PM

hehe, LJ, sry ye, i outbid u already. Now AGP & MPG together-gether at emila's. haha. :P

yeahlar, bono hebatlar. He outbid me almost everywhere.

LJ, i need to bid at yr place again later. wait for me, ya! :)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 21, 2008 5:06 PM

hehe, ok, marzie, i'll senyap senyap record him next time, yea! but u always must record B's playing, if kabur kabur also nvm, as long as can hear him playing dewa song. :)

oh, yes, i was at emila's yesterday but was hving some problem wt her blog. I have to return back to home after after comment then click on the post again to comment. >< and finally, i couldn't load her blog completely, so tidur lor. :)

im glad today is ok, altho' abit slow. Woohoo!! i saw both of us at the top. We must reach for the 1000 this time. You think we can do it? :)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 6:54 PM

Thank you Tammy! And the kitties say thanks too, they love being called cute MEOW! ;)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 6:55 PM

Hi Roxy, thank you for ur very generous offer! As soon as I hit the jackpot, a brand new house is what I'll be shopping for, wait for it Roxy! :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 6:58 PM

Thanks Yummy and it's nice to see u here today. Have a good one! :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 7:01 PM

Bono, 40 sen je ha ha ha! Still waiting for ur box to appear, I bet it will be snatched up as soon as bidding opens! Kena cepat-cepat bid dulu! ;)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 7:08 PM

Meow Sushi!! I know, that was pretty fast right? One moment you're back on my Top 10 list, the next you're gone he he! But worry not, there's still 10 more days to go, and I have every faith in you to quickly catch up and get your furry self back on the list! :)

Oh I'm sure it will work on a DVD-R, good luck cutie! :)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 7:13 PM

LOL! Thanks for such a cute comment Bokjae! Eh luckily didn't kena my TV or not how to watch the Olympic Games?! ;)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 7:16 PM

ECL, must take ur time in choosing the perfect cat for you. Each one has its own personality, so must make sure the one u choose suits yours too! Sometimes it takes several trips to many diff pet stores before u can finally find your very own Fluffball! Let me know how it turns out yeah? :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 7:38 PM

Hi Drunken Dragon! Welcome to Mariuca's blog, hope u had a pleasant stay. I'll come visit you too yeah? :):):)

Mariuca August 21, 2008 7:43 PM

Ha ha ha Jean!!! AGP and MPG together-gether? Sure or not... I think now it's Bono and MPG together-gether ha ha!!

Jean I love how u said kabur-kabur oso can ha ha ha!!! Pandai la Jean cakap BM! *HUGS*

Wah 1000??? Some more Marvic would like to see us break our old record LOL! Okay, we'll go for 1000, Emila is gonna have the shock of her life to see our comments reach 1000 this time, can't wait!

Am going out for dinner shortly, so I'll see u there later tonight! Don forget to bring the AGP quilt lest it gets cold later! :):):)

Bay Head Blog August 21, 2008 8:53 PM

Greetings from the beach in Bay Head...with my shiny new Roxy EC, I've been chasing you through the blogosphere, dropping 300 EC per day!

Roxy

Bay Head Blog August 21, 2008 8:54 PM

Pouring you and LJ a cup of java over on my Bay Head Blog...thanks for stopping by and commenting on lots of my blogs!

Roxy

sHaE-sHaE August 21, 2008 11:30 PM

I agree. Something strange is always going on regarding your apartment. I am beginning to think it's cursed! I'm glad though, that no one was injured or cut.

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 22, 2008 12:26 AM

yalar, marzie. now is bono & MPG!! geram saya!! this bono macam following me saja and outbid me everywhere. ><

Bono!! where are you? if you see this, im about to turn green already. The Incredible~licious Hulk is coming!! :D

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 22, 2008 12:33 AM

haha, thanks for yr compliment, marzie! as i gave into deep thought, i think i got the malay influence from my reading. Bukan read malay books, but malay subtitles. Whenever i wacth cantonese show, i'll switch on the subtitle. hehe, M said im weird. :P

yes, we must try to reach 1000 since both of us will be busy on 30th. If not, someone will topple us when we're not there. Kambate, k!! :)

oh, marzie, i received the kam heong lala oredi. sedap lar! thanks. :)

come over at emila's now. We cuddle together-gether under AGP quilt, k! :)

Faisal Admar August 22, 2008 1:25 AM

omg! that is scary.
lucky that it did not fall onto you or your cats!
can you blame the one who puts the lamp for you?

Roxy's Best Of... August 22, 2008 7:17 AM

A beautiful night on our porch in Bay Head...just dropping off my Roxiticus Best Blogs EC and saying a quick hello.

Roxy

arlene August 22, 2008 12:13 PM

hi Mar, that was an unfortunate event but at least thankful none of ur fluffy friends are hurt. don't worry, the lamps or the rugs can still be changed, but life, all living things has only 1 of it. hugss to ur fluffy kiddos.

Sushi August 22, 2008 12:24 PM

Woof Marzie, this TC widget is kinda crazy! I had to be at least in the last place :(
Anyway, just stopping by to say good nite(morning) to you and the children :)
Oh, the bull ride with Mama on FB was great! PW ( project wonderful?), I've been hearing a buzzz, buzzz about it. Should look into that too, to help Mama make some $$$. Gotta catch some ZZZZ now...

Roxy's Best Of... August 22, 2008 12:30 PM

The more EC I drop, the more you amaze me...trying to stop and comment while dropping 300 EC is a real challenge. And tonight, the batteries on Rex's Mac's wireless mouse went dead, so I'm stuck with my notebook PC...we'll see how this goes, about 8 hours until Applegates' hardware store opens!

Roxy

bonoriau August 22, 2008 12:43 PM

Marzie, salam jumaat. how are U? my entrecard is here today..hope get good clicks ..heee. My wonderful boxes is ready for bidding..

Monica August 22, 2008 5:11 PM

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives August 22, 2008 7:56 PM

Bay Head Blog August 22, 2008 7:57 PM

Time to wish you a happy weekend from the beach in Bay Head...I think you mentioned you've had rainy weather, but we've had nothing but sunshine since we started our two weeks at the beach.

Have a terrific weekend...your birthday is coming next week, right?

Roxy

Bay Head Blog August 22, 2008 9:51 PM

Hola Mariuca...
Here to drop off my Bay Head Blog EC, another gorgeous day at the beach. We've got friends (with four kids) coming to visit, so a walk on the boardwalk tonight...my kids love all those spinny rides, but I get sick just watching! I'll try to post some pictures over the weekend.
Roxy

rizal August 22, 2008 10:36 PM

wahhh..bahaya tuu.. nasib baik tak kena kucing.

Now that reminds me of an incident that happened way back masa kecik2 dulu. My arwah mom just bergerak dari that spot and suddenly lampu siling jatuh kat tempat dia sebelumnya..

heran satu rumah macam mana boleh jadi..

hmm

Criz Lai August 23, 2008 1:14 AM

Gosh.. what a dangerous place to be at the wrong time. Luckily no one was hurt. Poor kitties, I hope they are not scared to death by the impact of the fallen lamps.

http://crizcats.blogspot.com/

Mariuca August 23, 2008 12:21 PM

Hola BHB and RBO! Wowie, thanks so much for all the comment love here!! I saw u following my every move Roxy he he!! Unfortunately I didn't get to complete my 300 drops last night, only got to slightly less than 200, and that too cause I got up about 30 minutes before my daily reset! ;)

Here's wishing you and all your blogs an awesome weekend at the beach and hopefully speedy connection throughout! Love and hugs! :):):)

Hi Shae! Thanks so much for ur concern and a new place to live is currently topmost priority for us, as soon as we get more ka-ching our way! :):):)

Morning Jean! I was soooooo tired last night and didn't make my 300 EC mark here boo hoo, but managed to drop on important blogs including AGP, PHEW!! :)

Good that u're learning some BM from subtitles, although some of them on TV can be terrible broken Malay, but better than nothing.

Oh YAY, AGP is still here on PW though, some more u bid so much lol! I don think Bono can outbid u here he he!! :):):)

Hi Faisal, it's nice to see u here today. I wish I could pinpoint this incident to a particular party, but we're not too sure what happened that day. All we know is that we're thankful that nobody was hurt. And hope this doesn't happen again! :):)

Mariuca August 23, 2008 12:42 PM

Hi Arlene, thanks so much sweetie! Yup, despite my kitties having 9 lives, I wouldn't want to waste any on such a terrible incident like this. Have a good one and stay safe! :):):)

Rizal! I read ur comment last night, terus dapat goosebumps! You punya incident pun scary man!! We too masih tertanya-tanya what went wrong, but maybe it's best to just terima and move on. Thanks so much for sharing Rizal. :):):)

Got new lamps oredi or not?

Mariuca September 11, 2008 3:49 AM

Still scouting for the best ones dear! ;)

Bobby September 15, 2008 1:46 AM

Hi Marzie! It may take me a while to catch up on all your posts. Sounds like that lamp wasn't installed properly. I once had a ceiling fan with lights fall on me when I was young, but it didn't hurt me. I was living in Texas at the time and a small earthquake had caused it.

I'm glad your kitties are safe! That condo they have is so cool!
