This will be the first blog i'm blogging in textMalaysia. All these while, my blogs are with tblog. The problem with tblog is that it is down almost 365 days a year. Anyway, after much discussion with the owner of textMalaysia, and some feedbacks, i managed to pursuad him to come out with a script to port over all my existing blogs from tblog to textMalaysia. Well, it was a step which i really appreciate it very much :) As an additional bonus, the script also works for blogs from blogspot :)
Anyway, some additional add-ons which are featured over at textMalaysia which really attracts me most are:-
- Able to attach pictures straight to the blog.
- Automated achieves on blog entries every month.
That's the main reason i moved over from tblog to textmalaysia. Of course the ultimate reason is because as a true friend, i truly supports his products ;) That's what friends are for, isn't it? ;)
So ...... ddcat, Just hope that u read this ok ? :p These are my humble suggestions that i would like to see in textMalaysia. Hope that you can find time to enhance this blog site for the better of all users :)
- Monthly automated achieves with all titles from all entries(with static-link) listed in the page(as we've discussed)
- A panel(left panel) which allows users to customise their own page, for any kinds of linking to friends' blog site etc ......
- Allow more attachable files, maybe some short movie clips.
That's all for now. :) Just hope that this textMalaysia will be the best blogsite in the world and make ddcat a millionaire in no time. Good job. Gambatte ;)
Well, this saturday was a very productive one. :) Despite playing DotA till 2am last nite, i woke up at around 10am this morning. After making myself a cup of coffee, and Dan a cup of Choc Horlicks, and some net surfing, we both started making a new look for our home aquarium at around 11am.
Well, for those of you who has seen my home aqua b4, you should know that the water is always brownish and yellowish. That is because of the 3 huge logs i put in the water. With time, it rots, thus making the water dirty. Live plants is another headache. A lot of maintainance need to be done. Trimming, feterlizing, picking up dead leaves, etc. Anyway, i discussed with Dan, and we've decided to put all these into a stop, and so, we went shopping at Chew Tien Yang, the biggest pet shop in South East Asia, for an image remake on our home aqua. Anyway, you can see some angles of my old aqua here, here, here, though they are not that clear in showing the whole picture of it.
Well. We started of sucking the water out bit by bit. Slowly that we noticed it wasn't gonna work like that, and thus, Dan seggested that we pull out all the fishes and give the WHOLE aquarium a thorough clean-up. It was tough job cleaning up all the shit and droppings of the fishes for the past 6 months. :p We flipped around the black sand, and whoooosh all the dirt and shit all came floating and flying around the aqua. There seemed to be no ending in it.
We got all the rocks out from the aqua as well. I pulled out the filtering foam and washed it. Dan helped me in brushing off the algea from the rocks. It took us around 2 hours to get the whole box clean.
The interesting part cames in when we started to decorate and invent a new outlook for our aquarium. It was the brainchild of Dan, and nonetheless, she was the mastermind of the whole new design of this outlook :)
First, we pushed all the black sand towards the left and right side, leaving a cleavage in the middle part whereby we pours in the colourful blue and light blue tiny rocks there, making it look like a "drain" feeling.
Next, the huge rocks (which i brought back from my everyday jogging session opposite my house) we being put in place. The huge vintage-look pots are being nicely located at the right and left side. After getting the 2 artificial plants planted, the final touch up came in with Dan placing the cute, little transparent colourful corals along the shore.
Well, it was hardwork that really paid off. After all the hard work, we both felt a sense of satisfaction admiring at the product that we've came out with. Both of us think that the aquarium was a bit too spacious, and we are planning to get in more accesories for the aquarium this weekend. :)
This is the view from the entrance. See? Theres a huge vintage-look pot on the right side, and a small one at the left. The middle stands an artificial log, with holes for fishes to swim around.2 artificial plants on each side, and a few huge rocks lying on the shore. :)
This is the side view, a better perspective on the small pot.See the bottom right? That's one of the colourfil transparent corals Dan bought :p
OK. This is the back view. The view seens from the TV living room sofa. Notice the middle lane? The light and dark blue tiny rocks form a nice cleavage(drainage), creating a sense of a river parting 2 continents. Cool yeah ? ;)

Just received my 2005 focal review yesterday after a come back from a 2 days leave. I reached office at around . Making myself a cup of hot white coffee, and started running thru all the 670+ emails I’ve received for the past 2 days. I came across an email which was sent out by my boss to all members in my team. The content was somehow heart striking. It says that we have 2 promotion this year, and they are so-and-so. Of course my name wasn’t there.
It was a hard time for me to accept it. All these while I’ve been waiting and was so confident of getting a promotion to Senior this year. My boss even hinted me several times during our 1-on-1 that he will show some returns in my hardwork. Anyway, to say that I was depressed was somewhat an understatement during the hour. It was like I’ve been waiting for ages before my boss invited me into a meeting room for 1-on-1 at around .
Anyway, we had a open-hearted discussion. He told me that he they actually did propose on my promotion this year, just that the top management in S.J. turned it down. I somehow buy what he says. He asked of my expectation for this year’s increment, and I told him that I expected something around the same number as last year, around w%, or maybe a bit more, x%. Well, y% was something I never expected. Anyway, that was an acceptable number J The next thing was stock option. Before showing me the numbers, he forewarned me to expect a little reduction in numbers as top management has by far reducing all stocks options for this year by around 70%. Well, my number was xxx. To be honest, I somehow didn’t feel anything about the options. Anyway, the whole session seen my boss kept on telling me to be patient, patient and patient as things will get better next year, he PROMISE. As a guy with no initiation of negotiating with superiors, and one that doesn’t like to discuss much on facts that have been laid down, I showed him my acceptance, and that’s all I can say.
Anyway, the 1-on-1 session ended within 30minutes, just in time for lunch. While having lunch with Mut and Pimp, and even after that, my mind kept on telling me to overcome the sadness, but I just somehow needed more time. Anyway, it’s all about your mind playing tricks with you. I reread the focal review carefully, and more in depth. In the Strength & Weaknesses page, it says that my weaknesses are “Meeting commitments and follow thru”. I somehow think that it’s quite true. As a support team member, we have tons of scripts to maintain. When I am into something, and when some guys from other department kept on calling me on the phone, I will always shut them down, and reject answering the phone call. Yeah. That’s me. I think I’ve not doing my job up to my responsibility level. The other 2 on my team who got promoted wasn’t actually having an edge on my on their skills or whatsoever, but when it comes to job responsibility and follow ups on supports, I dearly respect their achievement on this part.
Anyway, after getting my mind set, tricks are gone from my mind. I felt anew again. Refreshed and Reborn. I sincerely congratulated my 2 counterparts who got promoted, and set a new target for myself, to be a better support team member, and be more attentive to customers’ request and complains. I’ve been always an optimistic guy (as what others always say that is how I perceived myself), and well, I believe I am truly are J Hahahahaha :D
The past 2 days have been quite an interesting and fulfilling holiday for me. As a avid photographer since his teenage years, his 2 sons joined in his footage. Not wanting to be left behind, I took up photography as well. Hahahaha. And so here we stand, me taking 2 days annual leave accompanying my uncle (Ee Cheong) and his youngest son, Simon for a 2 days photography session.
The first day saw us visiting 3 places - Khoo Kongsi in the morning (which we have to pay some waramashit RM5 / head) - Coastal highway (trying our luck on PenangBridge) - opposite Inventec (picking on some boats pix)
Outside Of Khoo Kongsi Temple

Coastal Highway. The guy in front is Simon. Hehe.
Fishing boats parking along shore of Coastal Highway.
Here comes the main object. The Penang Bridge. Fak those indonesians. Haze made this pix looks blur.
Opposite Inventec. This beautiful boat has been seen parking here ever since i started working. Finally i have the chance to capture this beautiful piece of art.
Some fishing boats seens parking near the fishing village opposite Inventec.
The 2nd day visitation goes like this - morning at Botanical Garden - Lunch at Penang Swimming Club - Dinner at Midland’s Mei3 Lan2 Ge2.
Camelion taken in Botanical Garden.

Lovely scene of Waterfal from Botanical Garden? Hahaha.... it's actually some kinda drainage system. Serious !!!
Lunch at Penang Swimming Club. Man.... the whether is very pretty today. Look at the nice blue sky with the white clouds.

Family Dinner at Mei3 Lan2 Ge2. First dish
Yummy Yummy, My favourite, . Are you dripping Saliva, Kokidi ? Hahahah.
Suckling Pig with Family photo, missing were the 2 photographers, Me and Simon.
3rd dish, . Not as nice as i expected. Tasted a bit fishy.
Last Saturday was a big day for all our family members. My grandpa celebrated his 89th birthday. It's a pity that Anthony and Carmen couldn't make it. They just went back to HK after a one week stay in Penang last week. Anyway, let's get on the events, shall we ? ;)
Dinner starts at 7pm. As host, Bee Ee insisted that we should be there early, and so, off we go, in 2 cars. One in Papa's car, with mama, me, kokidi, Dan and Yuli. The other car's driver was See Ee, with Bee Ee, Ee Cheong, Grandpa, and Simon. We reached there as expected, at around 6:30pm. The hotel management was kind enough to have the courtesy of keep a parking lot which is nearest to the entrence so as to minimise the walking distance for my grandpa. That was sweet and caring :)
We were given a VIP room with air-conned. And without much hesitation, i quickly opened my bag and start to capture the atmosphere in that room before all the guests arrive.
It was nice to know that the hotel management really do care and took the initiative to make the room nice full with balloons. For that i really appreciate their initiative.
Me, Dan and Kokidi went to beach together as it was still early. The sun was stunningly nice, and so, we took the opportunity to snap as much as we could. I saw s family sitting by the beach, relaxing ......
...... And there were a lot of activities and water sports took place. One guy happened to came up to me, asking me whether was i interested in this parachutting, i politely rejected, but asked for the price. It was RM70. Not too expensive at all, taking the price of RM50 5 years ago :)
There was also horse riding services available there ......
Not long after that, Simon joined us in the snapping activities too :p
We have lots of fun snapping each other's pictures. Here're some of the better ones after some filtering ......

Simon, Kokidi and Me, Taken by Dan.
Time flies, and it was time to attend to our guests. We finally decided to hit the sack, and this nice sunset picture was taken by Dan.
Most of the guests already arrived. Grandpa was sitting in the same table with his 3 daughters. Here we see Grandpa whispering with Bee Ee ......
...... and a faraway niece of mine, sending her own-made bday card to grandpa, while grandpa giving out angpow to her. How sweet :) ......
Dinner finally started. Everyone was busy with they food. My favourite food would have been this :p Salmon Sashimi ...... I like most the feeling of getting the wasabi strikes up all the way to your nasal, up to your brain. Very high .... hahahhaha :D
Not long after the dinner started, 3 entertainers entered our room to give some light entertainment and birthday wishing to the birthday boy :) Upon knowing my grandpa's origin, they volunteered to sing some Indonesian songs, which covered Buring Kakak Tua etc......
Burung Kakak Tua Menjung di Jendela Nenek Sudah Tua Giginya Tinggal Dua Letrum, Letrum, Le Kuku Lala Letrum, Letrum, Le Kuku Lala Letrum, Letrum, Le Kuku Lala Burung Kakak Tua.
It's good to see grandpa smile. He really enjoys it. :)
Although i enjoyed the food there very much, still, occationally, i jumped from places to places, trying Simon to cover the whole event of the evening as much as possible. Here's what I've got:-
Grandpa enjoying his meal .....
Grandpa's favourite chicken wing ...hehehe :p
While everyone has stopped eating, my mom was still going strong with desserts. Hahahaha. She loves desserts.
Anyway, the dinner ended with a grand finale. Everyone was happy. And i just wish that we could celebrate my grandpa's birthday till the day my children get married :)

Ouch ..... I came across this test while reading cmos' blog. As i came early to work today, i decided to give it a try, and this is my score. Hehehe.... not bad huh ? Slightly below my english guru cmos' score :p Guess i've to work harder in improving my English :p
Sigh ~~~ Me and Dan are as good as Dead Fish right now. After the tedious tea ceremony, we still couldn't get a wink of sleep due to the constant talking from all the aunties from the kitchen. Anyway, we just lied down on the bed, trying to recuperate on the lost enegy, as well as fighting hard against the humid heaty weather. Drousiness sets in. It wasn't long before we were awakened by Dan's Father again. Gosh .... hahahaha :p
It's 3pm, everyone is well dressed. Wedding dinner(or should we say , lunch) will be at 4pm sharp, still, when we reached the restaurant, they are still not well prepared from the previous wedding course.
Anyway, me and Dan set up the table at the entrence of the restaurant, and we were the guest welcoming committee, marking attendence as well as collecting ang-pows. Hahahahha ......
Wow. I must tell you, seeing people doing the task is always much more easier than u doing it yourself. We were so buzy collecting and doing all the stuff while those guests just keep on pestering us to be faster. Nonetheless, it's a great experience. Hahahaha :D
Well, this is the poster sticked on the entrence of the restaurant. It says there so-and-so's son and so-and-so's daughter getting married, at 4pm sharp here.
Finally the couple arrived with a grand appearance. The groom was charming, and the bride was appealing. It really was a nice feeling to see those 2 people walk in together hand-in-hand ....
It was a surprise that Me and Dan was being seated in the MAIN table. Holy Fak. I tell you, this is the first time even i sit on a MAIN wedding table. Hahahaha. Anyway, it was a good choice, as the table gives me the instance access to whatever happenings that is going to take place on stage, and thus, lessen the risk of missing out any glory and miricle moments. Anyway, cut the crap on what food were being served. The champaign pouring and cake cutting took place just as the 4th dish were served. It was a magnificent act for both the bride and groom on stage, and I was happy that i was able to captured some of the magical moments of their stunts up there ......
Couple cutting the wedding cake
Bride laughing on her lifetime partner's funny act
Bride asking groom to take aim at his buddies
Moments like this should serve well for great rememberence for life ^_^
The romantic kiss.
The finale came with the couple greeting every table with a Yam-Seng act.
That concludes the whole ceremony for the day. ^_^
I was reluctantly waken up by Dan at . I was surprise to notice that all her direct relatives are already dressed up and seated in the living room. Gosh, I quickly brush my teeth, get a shower, and changed. I got my camera ready, and waited impatiently. To be honest, this was my first time taking wedding shots. I felt somewhat nervous and pressured. I just couldn’t imagine that if they put such a high expectation on me, and only to find out that all my pictures taken were craps. Dan's father was actually lighting up josssticks and praying.
Anyway, the bright and bright groom has to be back before by hook or by crook. I can see that all the preparations have been done, and everybody is waiting for the arrival of the new couple eagerly.
Finally the couple arrived. Before i could even act or see the car, the noise of fire crackers just stunned me for a while.
I know that time is precious, and every second counts. Every moment that i take will make a big different in what is gonna be written in their album, and so, without wasting anymore time, i shovel out my equipment and start to shoot. For a second, i was a bit shocked as i really don;t know what to do, or what to shoot. There's a saying that goes "For every successful man, there's always a successful woman behind" . If it wasn't of Dan's persistance nagging and encouragement, i wouldn't have break thru my own fear and a lot of miricle moments wouldn't be logged, and for that, i really want to thanks her for pushing me up to a higher level, and i really want to give my sincere apology for giving her that "sour face look" at that time. I'm sorry darling, love you ^.^
Anyway, the bride and bride groom arrived with Dan's father's new Vios.
The bride and bride groom pray before entering the house.
Now. After entering the house, they pray to the ancestors and pay respect to them.
Now, the tea ceremony. The main point of this ceremony is to actually introduce the bride to the groom's parents and relatives. As usual, all parents always giggles when drinking the tea served to them by the in-laws. That's a sign of hapiness from the parents as well as the newly weds.
Groom serving tea to papa..... ^_^
Groom serving tea to mama ^_^
Bride serving tea to papa-in-law

...... and the ceremony continues to many many more other relatives, which i won;t be posting up all over here. Hahahha :p
Ok. Now.... the other way round. All the siblings of the groom is to be introduced to the in-law, which in this case, Dan is the only sibling. Hahahaha. Here, u can see Dan serving tea to her brother and her brother-in-law :)
Dan Serving tea to brother
Dan Serving tea to sister-in-law
Oh yeah, and this is one good cheeky naughty face Dan making to me. Hahahaha ^-^ Just look at the laughter and happiness which spreaded around everyone. Look at the smile on the bride's face, and all her aunties at the background :) That's my gal :)
Arhhh ~~~ And finally, what a relief. The tea ceremony finally comes to a conclussion when all the relatives have taken their share. Now is the time to finally relax. Friends starting to eat and chit chat .....
.... while the groom trying to show his appreciation to all his buddies by giving out ang-pows .....
...... and finally every thing is settled, and thus I get to gather the poeple around to get some group photos for rememberance.....
Last nite was a terrible nite. The bus was too cold. Me and Dan just hardly could sleep. And some more, the usual stuff, my nexk hurts like hell. Anyway, good thing is, we managed to reach Yong Peng quite early, around . We waited for around 1 hour till Dan’s parents arrive with their new Toyota Vios 1.5G. Wow …. This was also my first time traveling in a Toyota Vios J
Anyway, we headed straight home, rejecting all the invitation from Dan’s parents of having breakfast, and took a long sound sleep. We were later wakened up by some noise which comes from the constant high volume conversation in the kitchen. Apparently, Dan’s relatives have slowly arrived. Anyway, we then decided to take a bath and wake up at that time. (I really dun quite remember what was the time right then…. Hahahaha)
Preparations for a wedding ceremony is not easy. Dan’s aunties all were participating in some cooking or food preparation in the kitchen. As everyone was busy having something on their hands, me and Dan took the opportunity to get to know the new pet dog, which we named him chang chang due to his longer-than-normal body length J
Man, I tell you, he is a real cutie. One thing we can’t stand about him, he is way tooOOooo smelly :p We decided to give him a bathe job. With Dan’s help, we managed to pin him down and tied him up with a chain. To my surprise, he seems like used to bathing. He doesn’t reject water and soap as much as any other dogs that I’ve experienced before, and so, we had a fun time bathing him and cleaning him. When everything was done, we wipe him up with a piece of clean towel, and allow him to shrug his body off the wet.
While he was sun-bathing, we played with him and at the same time, took some pictures with him. It was difficult to try to keep up with him as his pace is fast and constant. I can’t get a hold of him for a still shot. Nevertheless, we did managed to capture quite a number of cute and stunning pix from this little cutie. J
He has a fine fur covering his body. One thing cool about him is that he is very friendly, and he doesn’t bite or scratch people, which is why Dan can play with him so happily. He doesn’t jump on people like the previous dog used to be. He doesn’t go anywhere further beyond the gate. The way he runs is wayyyyy to cute to be described in words. Hahahaha …. We love this little doggie very much.
Dan playing with chang chang.
Me trying to hold still chang chang so that Dan could get a nicely focused on him, as he is constantly moving around ... hehehe :p
Hahahaha .... I believe this is the only time chang chang is staying still and that we could get a nice focus on him. Hahaha :D
The food catering service came right on time around All the relatives and friends start cramping around rushing for food as usual. As a person that doesn’t like to be in a crowded place, we therefore waited for the wave to cool down before helping ourselves to the food. Nothing was special, just like any ordinary buffet catering. We stuffed ourselves, and not long after that, Dan’s friends joined in. There was Erica, GuanTou, Xian Ku. We all had a fun time talking and eating.
Time flies, and it is already 30 mins past 10. As one of Dan’s friends (Shao Yin) doesn’t know the way to her house, we therefore decided to go for supper in a hawker centre. Erica had to go back to meet her parents, and so, the attendees are, me, Dan, Guantou, Xiao Ku, Shao Yin, Jimmy & wife. Hahahaha … I guess we over ordered the food right then. There were a huge ikan panggang, a huge lobak, a huge fried fucuk, and some satays. Anyway, food wasn’t the main dish. The conversation and life updating was the main point of the gathering, which I really can see everyone including Dan was really enjoying the gathering so much, exchanging all the bits and pieces of their own life which has been gone thru for the past few months.
Anyway, Dan was so happy with the gathering. I could see it in her eyes, although we came back around and we was so tired.
Well, the day has come where we have to say goodbye. It’s been a fascinating experience for me and Dan for being able to participate so closely on a real wedding ceremony. I believe this has brought us in understanding the whole meaning and procedure of how the whole thing actually looks like.
We were reluctantly woke up by Dan’s papa at around . Toke a morning bath, had a last greeting with chang chang, and off we go for breakfast. Let’s cut the crap on the breakfast part. Breakfast sux. Food was worse than average. Anyway, the only nice one was the fish ball noodles ordered by Dan.
The journey from Kluang to Senai took around 1 hour +. Throughout the journey, me and Dan was holding each other’s hand. The feeling was good. I felt as if our relationship has gone a step higher. I felt closer towards her. Maybe it’s because of the long break that we both had after such a long non-interval working hours. At least, this weekend gave us some good quality time that I believe we’ve spent together. Sometimes all it really needs is just to let 2 hearts rest together side-by-side to replenish the love in between.
Anyway, we reached Senai airport around . It was still early. Our checking time is , and so, we me and Dan did some walking around the airport. This airport really amazed me with it’s nice environment. Although small, the cozy feel and beautiful surrounding makes up for its short coming. This was our first time that we’ve came here. And this was also our first time that we patronized AirAsia. As usual, as a more observant person, I used to notice that Dan’s mother’s eyes would be extra shinny every time this moment arises, probable due to the extra moist accumulation on her eyes. Nevertheless, we moved in to the check-in section, and I gave my future in-laws a last goodbye wave.
We look for a nice seat on the waiting lounge, and as I was about to invite Dan for some nice photo session, I was abruptly approached by a huge sized malay-looking guy, around mid 40s. He brought with him a Canon ViewCam. He came with a nicely understandable English slangand asked if I speak English, he asked for help on setting up his ViewCam’s date and camera. I was somewhat shocked at first, but as a guy which likes to help, I gladly accepted his challenge. I asked for his user manual, and he threw me some Dutch, Italian, Spanish etc manuals. I finally asked for an English manual. We both go thru the manual, and finally found the section. As the viewcam required the user to set the time zone, I therefore seek for his originality, which to my surprise, he answer, ”I’m from Middle East, Bahrain”.
Oh yeah. No doubt I was kinda freaked out for a moment. I believe this is due to the how the public media puts up the impression on those people in the country. I was like “WTF!??!?! Am I really gonna go in the same plane with a Middle Easterner?” . But the next thing happened denies all my accusations. His son came up, and was talking with him in some Arabic language I believe. He then talked to Dan on some English, which we could hardly understand. His father then told him something and then faced back on us and said, that was his son, Hassan, and he was trying to ask u how long are you gonna stay in Penang. That was sweet, isn’t it ? J
Anyway, I kept my composure, and guide him thru the settings. We couldn’t find BadRain in the selection menu, and so, he opted for Dubai. Within a few minutes, we’re done, and he tried a few shots and showed me what he took. There she was, his wife, sitting together with his 2 sons and 1 daughter. As the accouchement from the PA system kept on urging passenger to start boarding the plane, we therefore parted goodbye.
The seats in the A360 was in such a way that it was 2 columns, with 3 seats on each column. Me and Dan settled for a nice window seat, and after a few moments, what a coincident. We were talking about that guys that we just parted goodbye just now, and regretted for not getting his name, and to our surprise, he actually came from behind, and seated his family in front of our seats. When he turned back, he was too surprise to see us, and of course, I invited him to have the seat beside me, and asked for his name.
His name is Waheed, and we quickly exchange name cards.
The conversation during the journey to Penang enlightened me a lot and brought some senses to me. We had some nice conversation and view exchanged. I asked him about his work back there, and he told me that he works in this ManTruck company which deals with trucks, vehicles, constructions, cements etc. He said he works for 7 days a week, till everyday. I was somewhat stunned, and Dan asked him that was it a norm to work for 7 days a week back in his country. To our surprise, this was his story:-
“I have been working for 16 years for this company. I started of from zero, nothing, until what I have accomplished today. I appreciate the opportunity the company gave me, and so, I do my best to pay back to the company. Our country view Friday as a public holiday. Government organizations has a holiday on Saturdays as well. Our company is a private one, and I have to go back on Fridays not less than 4 hours to make sure that all procedures are flowing smoothly. As you know, I don’t have much time spent with my family, and for this, I do my best to make up with giving my children and family a nice and enjoyable travel at least once a year. I love my job very much. And so, for all the negligence throughout the year, I try to compensate it with this so that I could spend more time with my family.” I was somewhat touched by his words. Although he looks like a normal blue color worker, deep inside, he has a lovable heart which is much more sensitive than what others claim to be. He then took out his whole holiday schedule, printed out on a piece of A4 paper and showed it to us. He told us that he would love to bring his children to all those places where his children could actually enjoy and have fun, and he asked for my suggestion. He said he will be staying in ParkRoyal.
I told him that that’s a nice 5 star hotel, and he said yes it is, and the reason why he chose to take a suite in ParkRoyal was that he misses the homely food so much that he wanted his wife to cook home food for his family for the 4 days he is staying in Penang. We told him to spend more time at the beach there if his kids like to play with water, and he said his kids really do love swimming. He told us about stories on how they spent their time in Sunway Lagoon last week, and with that, he drew out his FujiPix Digicam and slowly browse thru each pictures while telling us the stories behind each of them.
We asked if he is fond of food, and he said “Who doesn’t like food?” hahahaha. And so, we added GurneyPlaza to his shopping list, and Gurney Drive to his next stop. We introduced him to Butterfly Farm. We introduced him to Genting, and he said he was there for 12 hours, which he personally thinks that it wasn’t really enough for his kids.
We asked for his kids’ age, and he said his sons were 10, 7 and 5 for his little daughter. There was a slight silence before he carried on with his conversation. “You know, Hassan, my eldest son? When he was born, we didn’t know that he has a hole in his esophagus (the paip which serves as the breathing tunnel as well as the food channel). He kept on vomiting every time after having his mother’s milk. He face would turn red, blue, and then purple. Every time I see that, I was so scared. We sent him to the hospital, and the stuff there told us that there’s nothing they can do about this. Well, I called my friends and relatives, and I studied myself on what’s the cause of this and everything I could, and I finally decided to bring Hassan back and took care of him myself. I even signed the letter stating that whatsoever happens to him is on the sole responsibility of myself. I bought some chemical cleaning machine, and cleans his room everyday. I took some hard food and make them soft, but not too soft, and feed them down his throat, so as to make sure that those food will not have him choked. I make sure that I change him, and prepare his food and feed him every morning before I go to work at . When I came back around , I would again change him and feed him myself, and then put him to bed. I did that for 7 months, from the day he as 10 days old, and slowly, the hole patched, and he is as healthy as what he is right now.”
At this time, our conversation was interrupted by the flight attendants. Waheed kindly asked his kids what they would like to have, and to my surprise, he insisted on buying us drinks. His sincerity was too hard for us to turn him down, and so, we finally decided to take 2 bottles of orange juice.
It wasn’t long before we landed in Penang. I couldn’t have the chance to say goodbye to him as he was moving fast catching up with the taxi waiting for them at the arrival hall. I think to myself, I would really want to send him an email when he is back in BahRain, to keep up our friendship.
I personally gain quite a lot from the interaction with this simple yet loving man. I could see from his gestures that he is a loyal man. Loyal to his company. He is a loving husband and caring father, the loves his kids more than anything in this world, and could sacrifice for them in any way. He reasons with his children whenever they do wrong. And he is a responsible man. A respectable husband, father, friend.
Lemme tell you a story. Dan has been applying for HSBC credit card for more than a month, and the cards are still beyond reach. We've called in some umteenth times, and that marafaking officer told us that the cards have been sent to us a few days back, but no one was around. She told us to wait for the PosLaju slip and collect the cards from the PosLaju Office near the ferry terminal.
Dragging my damn faggoty lazy tiring body after coming back from Kluang, me and Dan still need to go all the way to downtown to collect that waramashit credit card from HSBC. You know what? To our surprise, that collection was not the credit card, but some stoooooooopid pocket radio gift from HSBC which comes from the application of their credit cards. Still there's no sign of the credit card. The disappointment and frustration is building together with the heat from the hot steamy sun.
At nite, when we were checking our bank statement, i was surprise to see that there was actually a RM80 charges to my VISA. As i normally don;t use my VISA, i therefore go ahead and check what was that RM80, and to my holy surprise, it was actually the YEARLY SUBSCRIBTION FEE for my VISA card. I was previously told that i won't be charged for my VISA and MASTER cards for 2 years, and that's the main reason why i agreed to take upon that VISA card on top of my original MASTER card. I tell you, this waramashitty-farking-HSBC company is slowly loosing me out and starting to get on my nerves. I will make a phone call to their customer service later today and give them a big screw. Damn Cibai ~~~ !!!
phew ..... What a tiring weekend i had. Last weekend saw me and Dan in Kluang helping out at Dan's Brother's wedding. It was a tiring 3 day stint, and i will post up my blogs with some pix. Stay tune. :)
As for now, lemme get thru that marafaking experience with u guys on what happened on the day we took off.
It was Friday, and our bus is scheduled to leave at 10:45pm. After working out at the office gym, i went straight to fetch up Dan at around 7pm, only to receive a phone call from my boss. As Fusion is taping in next Tuesday, we were suppose to get everything done and clean ASAP. My boss knows that i will be on leave next monday, so in order to keep everything running smoothly, he gave me a call and asked me some questions as English-Slanger-MTS(from now on, he will be refered as ESM) was having some problem programming some layout blocks with my program. Anyway, as focal review is just around the corner somewhere in July, i offered to come back after picking up Dan.
And so i came, reaching in the office at 7pm. Together, me and ESM tried hard to find out the cause of all the chaos, while Dan sitting in my cube enjoying all the funny clips on Malaysian Idol 2nd season. We finally found out the root of the problem, which is basically the ignorentness of some MARAFAKING layout people who didn't notify us on some changes they made. I dun care who's responsible to that piece of shit. I have clearly stated to the block leaders on this case before, and so, i highly expect them to pass on this message to all their crew members, and so, this kind of farking problem shouldn't have occured, not especially on this nick of time. And so, i farked them off, sending to all the layout boss and block leaders a farking email, hoping they do get the message across.
I almost lost the trip. We reached home at 9:30pm, had to rush on packing and bathing, then with the luck and speed from GayLord, we finally manage to reach the bus station at 10:55pm sharp.
Anyway, this is the piece of email and the reply. Cheers ~~~~~~
We over look this as the power down cell program will add in the suffix_POWER_DOWN to all the cells in the power down cell.. The schematic database has been frozen and should have not any chnages to the switch location and cell name from now onward. Thank you.
Can you guys please pass the message across to all the fusion members.
If there is any additional switch programming cells (SOPV3*) being added to the layout database, please notify us.
The script which programs the layout heavily depends on the list which is provided to us. The reason for the power down blocks (C9250_POWER_DOWN_TOP and C9300_POWER_DOWN_TOP) not being able to be programmed is due to some addition
Switches which are SOPV3_POWER_DOWN, SOPV3_Z_POWER_DOWN and SOPV3_Y_POWER_DOWN.
Talking about bettas leads me back to those memories I spent with my grandpa again :)
Yupe. My grandpa was the first to introduce me to a lot of things, badminton, soccer, cycling .... and .... keeping pets. I don't quite remember me seeing him keeping any fishes as pet, but as a toddler who spent my childhood with my grandparents, he always told me how he would carry my in his arms, and feed those gorgeous betta of his collection from one bottle to another, and change their water. My mother said he was a good betta breeder, with more than 100 bottles surrounding our home. As a curious child, i asked him what happened to all those bettas? He told me that he no longer wants to be a slave anymore. Why make the fish your master, and you the slave ? Hahahaha .... That was kinda like a finny answer :p He told me that the reason for him keeping all those fishes as pet was to show his children something in life, and since everyone has grown up, he has decided to give out all the fishes that he breeded to his friend, Mr. Chew. ..... ........ ... .. yeah ..... Mr. Chew Tien Yang, the multi-level pet shop owner which owns the biggest pet shop in the South East Asia, which at that time, only has a small fish shop operating in SawTow Lane.
The advice of becoming slave to a fish doesn't set in my mind quite well, not until i reach puberty that my father used to always instructed me to clean up him gold fish tank every weekends. Hahahahah .... Seems like i never learn my lesson quite well huh? :p My 4 x 1.5 feet tank sitting in the middle of my living room is slowly getting irritating when the need of changing water and maintainance arises. Me and Dan was planning of getting rid of all the wood logs (which make the water brownish) and plants (which make the water messy with all the floating leafs) from the aqua. To keep the aqua to be as homely and comfortable, we will replace it with some shelter artifacts which we came across in Chew Tien Yang. I believe this will make the water more crystal clear and cleaning up the aqua easier.
Sigh ~~~ Life seems boring lately. Dunno why, maybe becuase of the intense pressure from Fusion, which is taping in next week; maybe because of the accumulated tiredness which i got as the aftermath effect of my illness (flu); maybe due to over-dota everynight at battle.net. I dun't know. Anyway, i'll try to be as creative as possible....darn.
Saw this book in lighthouse's cubicle. I quickly took a snapshot of it.
What is so funny and interesting about it ? Nothing. It's just the NAME of the book, which looks soooooooOOOoooooo funny ....hahaha ..... The name is actually a HERO's name in the DotA game we played all these while, which actually is the favourite, or should i say, the hero which pimp will always choose when he join us for DotA(of course, when he is not lazy) as in a million years. :)
He even became sooOOOoooo commited to it that he personally came out a user guide on teaching people how to MASTER the skill of choosing Furion, The Ultimate FURION Guide. Here's how the hero looks like in the game :)
Day before yesterday, i really couldn't stand the algea and dirt sticking on the surface of my aquarium anymore. I decided to do some cleaning on it. I found out that my lil poor gourami which suffered the bolting sickness is floating dead on the water surface. Its body doesn't seem bloted anymore, but blood stains can be seen around those areas. Sigh ~~~~ What can i say, it's really painfull to grep it up, and see it struggled for so long, only to end up in the rubbish bin just like that.
Anyway, just nothing much i can do. Just wanna make sure that the water in my aquarium is well topped up, water condition is clear and clean, and everything in my aquarium is in tip-top condition before i leave this Friday night for Dan's brother's wedding ceremony this weekend.
This is the prepared text of the address by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, who spoke at Commencement on June 12, 2005.
I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories.
The first story is about connecting the dots.
I dropped out of ReedCollege after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out?
It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife. Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: "We have an unexpected baby boy; do you want him?" They said: "Of course." My biological mother later found out that my mother had never graduated from college and that my father had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented a few months later when my patents promised that I would someday go to college.
And 17 years later I did go to college. But I naively chose a college that was almost as expensive as Stanford, and all of my working-class parents' savings were being spent on my college tuition. After six months, I couldn't see the value in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out. And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The minute I dropped out I could stop taking the required classes that didn't interest me, and begin dropping in on the ones that looked interesting.
It wasn't all romantic. I didn't have a dorm room, so I slept on the floor in friends' rooms, I returned coke bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be priceless later on. Let me give you one example:
ReedCollege at that time offered perhaps the best calligraphy instruction in the country. Throughout the campus every poster, every label on every drawer, was beautifully hand calligraphed. Because I had dropped out and didn't have to take the normal classes, I decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do this. I learned about serif and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can't capture, and I found it fascinating.
None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life. But ten years later, when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just copied the Mac, its likely that no personal computer would have them. If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards ten years later.
Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
My second story is about love and loss.
I was lucky – I found what I loved to do early in life. Woz and I started Apple in my parents garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4000 employees. We had just released our finest creation - the Macintosh - a year earlier, and I had just turned 30. And then I got fired. How can you get fired from a company you started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me, and for the first year or so things went well. But then our visions of the future began to diverge and eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our Board of Directors sided with him. So at 30 I was out. And very publicly out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating.
I really didn't know what to do for a few months. I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down - that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure, and I even thought about running away from the valley. But something slowly began to dawn on me – I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over.
I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.
During the next five years, I started a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife. Pixar went on to create the worlds first computer animated feature film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful animation studio in the world. In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought NeXT, I retuned to Apple, and the technology we developed at NeXT is at the heart of Apple's current renaissance. And Laurene and I have a wonderful family together.
I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn't been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.
My third story is about death.
When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: "If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right." It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that your are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at in the morning, and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn't even know what a pancreas was. The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor's code for prepare to die. It means to try to tell your kids everything you thought you'd have the next 10 years to tell them in just a few months. It means to make sure everything is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes.
I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy, where they stuck an endoscope down my throat, through my stomach and into my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a few cells from the tumor. I was sedated, but my wife, who was there, told me that when they viewed the cells under a microscope the doctors started crying because it turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had the surgery and I'm fine now.
This was the closest I've been to facing death, and I hope its the closest I get for a few more decades. Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept:
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late 1960's, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and polaroid cameras. It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.
Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish." It was their farewell message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.
Last week, Anthony and Carmen came over to Penang. They reached here on Tuesday afternoon, and was fetched by See Ee, straight away they headed to Mutiara Beach Hotel for a 2 day stay.
Thursday afternoon, upon check-out, they were fetched by See Ee, straight to Ah Kong's house. Anthony gave me a call that night where i was still in office shoving my ass on some Fusion Project script. I find myself a bit distanced due to the long lull of interaction with him for almost a year.
Anyway, See Ee brought them over to my apartment on Friday night for a short visit to our house. This was the first time they visited our new home. Some normal introduction and tour guide around, and off they go with some schedule fixed for the next day.
As promised, we reluctantly woke up at around 10am. I was feeling a bit drousy as i believe i was about to catch a very bad flu. Anyway, me and Dan managed to get the famous Air Itam Mee Goreng for all of us as our lunch, and then off we go to Chew Thein Yang, the largest Pet wholesaler in South East Asia.
After some fish and doggies and pets seeing, we headed to Penang Road to get 5 packets of ChenDol. The feeling of shovering down those smooth sweet dessert was a real relief after the whole hot sticky sweaty afternoon trip around.
We caught a nap, and at 6:30pm sharp, off we go to Oriental SeaFood at Macalister Road together with my parents. We had 4 meta crabs (20 each), 2 bawal hitam, frogs, balitong, thin noodles and a plate of broccoli. Total came up to around RM240++.
A rest after the hefty meal, and off we go to Farlim's Khaleel for some Roti Tissue and Roti HongKong. :) That was their ultimate goal of coming over to Penang, and so, I wouldn't want to disappoint them even though my tummy was gonna burst at any moment.
Sunday Morning saw me snizzling with some heavy headache as the flu got worse. I opted for a light morning jog instead of the normal badminton session. A simple speghetti lunch at home, and off we go, me and Dan bringing Anthony and Carmen to the AirPort.
On the way there, i bangged into our Malaysia's latest car, MyVi. I quickly pointed that out to them as this was my first time seeing the car on the road since it was launched a few days ago. To my surprice, it was Mutumbo driving that holy car. Geez .... what a small world :p
Anyway, that's basically all about it. Although just a mere few-days visit to Penang due to their hectic schedule in their respective hospitals, i have to say that it really keeps up the momentum of our relationship, and keep the ball of gooldwill rolling.
I urge help from all the kind hearted people out there, with a heart full of love from everything. Please, send your prayers to help me salvage my poor little Gourami. I mentioned this to the Hendrix, and I've discussed it with Dan. I told them that, I believe it must have been having a great difficulty fighting off the pain and agony. I wanted to give it a fast relief. DDCat had the same thought as well. Dan told me that everything in this world has their right to stay alive. Who's knows, probable it is trying its best to fight off the disease. We shouldn't rob off other's right for living just like that. We have to give it a chance, and pray for it.
Please please ...... I really hope everyone can help me by sending your love and prayers to this poor little Gourami. Help it go thru this terrible stage. It really saddened me and broke my heart seeing it swiming slowly in the aquarium, agonizing all it's way :(
This is the side view. Noticed that the back and tummy is bulging, as if there was a huge lump in it. Sad ~~~ :(
Here's a closer shot of Gourami. See how the bulging body? Really pity him man :(
This is a top view. A better perspective of how bad actually the deformed body looks like .... :(
Well, hahahaha ..... trying to utilize the existance of my Nikon 4500 digicam, i snap on each and every tiny ooptunity that arises around me, to make my diary blog and life more interesting and colourful.
Well, as u know, Fusion is going to tape-in next week. We dun even have time for our lately-not-so-frequent tea break. Me and ddcat went down at 4pm, only to find out that there's nothing left to eat. Seriously NOTHING left. ddcat was kind enough to offer me his little tit-bits that he brought from home. Here is a picture seen where i'm holding the so-call cigarette-biscuit that ddcat sponsored. As a representative of (Hendrix-1), i hereby put up a sincere call to our beloved (Hendrix-4) member who smoked. We, the (Hendrix-1) really care for you and love you, and for the good sake of your own health, please Quite Smoking. See this No-Smoking-Gesture below..... :p
Sigh .... Work work work ....... feeling damn pressure lately. Anyway, while i was stealing some time for myself from the hectic workload, to release the high tension that has coninuously building up in my head, i watered the GrassHead . It's been nice to have my digicam Nikon4500 with me in my office, which i decided to leave it in the office since it served no purpose in my house. This was fun ....hahahha....
See .... this is the picture of the GrassHead after getting some love juice from me :)
Hahaha....now this is fun. I found something interesting, and i zoomed in with a macro shot ..... and this is exactly what i saw..... HAHAHAHAHA :D
Hahahahaha ..... Having a digicam by your side evreytime really allow u to capture all those small tiny lil moments in your everyday life which we normally ignored without much treasure :) Does't this look like a Firm, Solid breast with a nipple ? HAHahahahaha :D
"EVENTS are non-controllable. What is under your control is your following act, which results in the following EVENTS"
I find it very true...............
This morning, while on our way to work, as usual, i stopped by the corner chicken rice stall to get a packet of Chicken rice for Dan as her lunch. It was raining cats and dogs, i was running hell for coverage into the shop. Upon placing my order, only to find out that i forgot to bring my wallet. Hence, i went back to the car, and opened Dan's door for some cash. Neither did i notice that she placed her bag lying on the door, and when i opened it, the bag just slipped out. Luckily no serious damage was done. She managed to snatch the bag in time to prevent it from falling into the pool of water on the road, but some negetive feelings have been set into the atmosphere.
Of course, we guys have to make the first step in apologising to girls. I personally feel that this should be the way. It really doesn;t matter who's right or wrong, the point of it is just to reduce the animosity atmosphere, and thus, changing the -ve force back to +ve.
Anyway, the problem wasn't really that seirous, and we both smiled and part goodbye with a normal gesture that we always do when she hoped out from the car to work :)
Some serious deep thought set into my mind this whole morning while i was in my office. I recalled this phrase so clearly as if it was just mentioned to me. The Non-Controllable EVENT would be the event where i opened the door. There's no way from preventing it from happening, neither can i predict that the bag was placed at the particular position. The Controllable EVENT would be the aftermath action, which eventually have several choices for us to choose from, which i chosen the one which eventually bring peace and happiness to everyone :)
It's easier said than done. I agree. I truely agree. Nothing has been easy in our lives though. Changes were made thru strong determination and persistence. There's nothing to hurry. If only we could start practicing this daily, and keep our coolness whenever a Non-Controllable EVENT have happened, make it as if it is a habit to us to think before we act, i believe nothing will be impossible. You not only make other's life happier, in return, you make yourself happier, like what've happened to me this morning :)
My warmest regards to all my friends and family who read this, may your day be a happy day everyday :)
I received this email from a friend of mine.I dunno how true is this, but i believe the trustable level should be quite high from what these pictures showed. This is one solid marafaking cibai bin.
I was making my way with my girl friend to Gurney Plaza on 12th of June (Sunday evening) 2005, just to hang around and grab the chanceto visit the Pet Fiesta, which was held outside the compound of the complex. After finished having dinner at one of the restaurant along the Alfresco stretch, we decided to get ourselves to Watson at lower ground floor. By the time we getting ourselves to thelower ground floor thru the escalator, we noticed a guy standing right beside the escalator with a weird attitude (exactly beside the so-called "Japanese mart", by the way, I'm not too sure what's the exact name for the shop). He was standing there holding his mobile phone, and at the same time, looking upstairs as seems like waiting for his friends. Without any suspicious, we just went to Watson and shopped for our goods. After finished buying our things, we decided to have a window shopping at the shop lots at ground floor. Guess what, the guy was still there! He was looking at girls with short mini skirt which came down from escalator! When he saw us looking at him, immediately he took out his mobile phone, acting as if he's answering a phone call.
To avoid getting suspected, the guy walked away, making his way to ground floor. We decided to tail him and see what else he's doing at ground floor. He is pretty smart, this time he's standing right beside escalator as well, but somewhere near the pillar, whereby not much people will be able to witness his appearance over there. He was holding his mobile phone and acting like answering calls from time to time to avoid getting suspected. Also, he used to go from one floor to another, but standing at his "strategic location" to hunt for his prey. God damn, this guy moved his head towards those girls with short skirt whenever he saw them coming down using the escalator. If this guy is really looking for his friend, why not he chooses a more appropriate location, say, in front of the information counter, instead of standing beside the escalator? And also it's such a ridiculous reason for taking more than 1 hour standing right beside escalator and "searching for his friends". Luckily I did bring along my camera and took the photo of this idiot. Aren't those pet are much more tame than this stupid bustard?
BEWARE OF THIS ESPECIALLY GIRLS AND ALSO GUYS, WHEN YOU BRING ALONG YOUR GIRL FRIEND GOING FOR SHOPPING @ GURNEY PLAZA, or even other shopping complexes. This kind of person might be a future rapist.BEWARE!!!
Hahahahah .... After one hard week of showering love and pampering the GrassHeadthat ddcat brought us, (Hendrix - 1) is starting claiming their expected rewards from ddcat, as we've promised that the last contender in the list will be giving free BJ to the rest. It's so pathetic that ddcat's GrassHead is still as bold and desserted as ever as his balls now. Hahahahah.........
Anyway, All the Hendrixes are boasting about how their GrassHead owns, and i really can't stand that. (j/k....hahaha), Let me show all you Hendrix guys out there, what is the real meaning of OWNING !!!!!
Anyway, Fusion is tapping out next week. Everyone's pantiz are tighter than never. I've gotta get back to work now. More emo-bapuk blogs to come later. Stay tuned ;)
Yesterday(Sunday), me and Dan went to Gurney plaza after lunch. As usual, i was somehow worn off after a tiring badminton regular session this morning from 10am - 12noon. Anyway, the happiness shown at her face after a nice shopping spree is enough to make my day, so it is actually quite a rewarding weekly task which both of us have been doing every week :)
Anyway, the reason why we went to gurney plaza this particualr week was becuase Dan missed the "Ke Li Ping"there. It's actually a Taiwanese decilacy, which sorta look like a "Ban Chang Kueh" in disguise. It's much more thinner than Ban Chang Kueh, with more ingredients in it. I had a Sardine Mayo while Dan had a Chicken Mayo. for RM5.90 each, plus a cup of kiwi honey, we spent around RM13.00+ for a tea snack :)
As usual, on every visit here, as pet lovers, we never miss a chance to visit the same-old pet store which is located as the back entrance. Little did we know that there was actually a Pet Fiesta held for this day. With full of anticipation, we took of to the centre stage and joined in the crowd.
There were lots of participants there. A lot of pet owners (mostly dogs) went there along with their pets, just for the sake of participation and for the fun. Everyone was so friendly, and all the dogs are so well trained that u won't have to worry much about getting your hands snapped while stroking them :)
To tell you the truth, the feeling of not bringing my camera along with me was painful. Neither words could describe the disappointment. I wasn't planning of coming out with this blog, not until Mut shared with us these pix. :) And with the courtesy of allowing me to post these pix, i therefore decided that i shouldn't miss this story of my life. Yes, All these pix were taken by Mut. Let's take a look at those pix, shall we ? ;)
Pet's sellers won't miss this kind of opportunity for promoting their products. There we those norms, including cats, dogs, rabbits, gunnie pigs. All contained in cages, and looked tired.
Oh, this one looks like Zizi, aren't they ? Hehehe :p
they are called Toy Poddles.
Some Saimese cats. I am quite fond of cats, unfortunately, keeping them as a pet wasn't an option as Dan has severe nose allergy.
Hahaha. Ribbon tied on the head. This was optenly done to Zizi and our longed deceased Georgy.
Oh my. Tell you the truth. There were lots of doggies which were properly "dressed". Some were even wearing SHOES. Yeah .... no joke :p
Shi Szu ???
This one Looks like Georgy. :)
Wow. This dog was brought there by a bunch of Indians. The LOOK from it is enough to scare u away. Although it somehow looked tame, i still dare not place my fingers anywhere near its mouth. Scary man ....
Chee Wah Wah. A white breed, which is quite rare. We have a chiwawa opposite my granpa's house. It was a hybrid of brown & black. Chiwawas are nice cute lil dogs, but when u need some peace of mid after a hard day work, these dogs might be some nuisance.
Oh i love this one. Owner was a punjabi women. We passed by her, and happened to talked to her. She was kind enough to let us touched her pet. I kindly asked for his name, and slightly pet him and rub his left cheek and called him "PRINCE" when departing.
Oh now, after the weekends, i'm finally back at work again. Felt a bit tired and lazy today, must be the excessive exercise i had during the weekends. Went for a full 7-round jog on Saturday evening at Sri-York, and yesterday's badminton session saw me going thru 5 touch matches. Now my right hamstring hurts. Hahahaha. I love the feeling of muscle pain, makes me feel good :)
I think another reason of me felt worn off was due to accesive DotA traning too. Hahahaha. Ever since i get connected and started playing DotA in battle.net, i have grown more addicted towards it. I think some balancing between my life and DotA ought to be carried out in order to put my life back on track.
Anyway, reached office only to find out that my Linux machine (luyten) was down again. Damn it. It always happens to me while the others' are working fine. The good part about it is, tBlog is finally back in action. And so, Here i am, back on my blogging spree. :)
Let's see when will they get my Linux machine back. At the mean time, let me share with you some nice pix i received during the weekends.... hahahaha :D
I am extremely disappointed with tBlog. They were down for 2 days, and i hardly can't post any of my happenings for the past 2 days, not to mention that i can't even read my friend's blogs.
I just hope that ddcat doesn't disappoint me with his blogsite that he is coming up with.(although most of the hendrix told him that the domain name sux) He promised me that he is gonna come up with a script or something that can do wonders on porting over all my diaries from tBlog to his blog site, without any discrepancy or data lost, and as a return, i promised him that i will stay put and support his site until i reach 80 years old. That's the DEAL ;)
This morning while driving my way to work, i turned on my radio to 98.8 and listen to that crappy Chan Fong's talk show. To be honest, i am not a big fan of him, and it sometime irritates me whenever he starts to talk to his audience bluntly and disrespectly. Anyway, the talk that he was talking this morning did somehow caught my attention though.
As we all know, the results of SPM has already being announced for quite some time, and it time that all the students know where are they suppose to end up with their tertiary education/scholarship bla bla bla. And as usual la, All the students that scored 13A1, 14A1 and full A1 didn't get the scholarship, and didn't even get their first choice of selection in the university they've opted for.
Anyway, it's Sad But True. This trend has been flowing in Malaysia even since a long time ago. Bumis (a slang in Malaysia, which refers to the natives) are secured for a place in local Universities, whereby a higher quato of is allocated to them. The next goes to Chinese, which takes up a mere pinch of the pie, and with the rest allocated for Indians/other group of minor races.
I am not racist or anything, but i personally think that equal chance has to be given to everyone regardless of their race, regardless of their financial background, and definitely regardless of the colour of their skin. Just try to imagine that, those students who have scored full A1s, knowing that their parents couldn't afford to get them a place for a tertiary education, spent all their life and time, studied so hard, for what ?!?!?!?! So that they could get good grades, and hopefully they can get a local scholarship for some local Universities, which the subject that they wanted. With all the hope and joy when they received their SPM result slip, only to find out that their application was turned down, without any solid reason given.
Enough said, there's no way Malaysians knowledge / technology / advancement / mentallity is reaching any near of the westerners as long as this so call full-prove-education-system stays the way as it is right now. It's all up to those people who are sitting high on top of the hierarchy to do something. Either they wish to protect their own species, or they can let their country rot, for what i care.
Sigh .... This month has seen our spending sky rocket. First, Dan's brother is getting married end of this month. 2nd, my cousins coming out from HongKong next from 15th Jun till July. 3rd, i just had my car serviced, and lots of changes were made. Let's see the breakdown.......
Dan's brother's wedding - Bus ticket back to Kluang (RM50 x 2) - AirAsia tickets back to Penang (RM150 x 2) - AngPow (RM500)
Cousin coming out - Makan / tourist guide (extimated around RM500)
Car Service - RM413 (See attachment below)
In total, i will overspend around RM2000 this month !!!!! Oh my farking god !!!! Luckily i managed to sell of some of my leaves, which pockets me RM1000+ this month, but that still leaves me some over spending of around RM900, which is a pain in da ass. Sign ......
The reason why this session's car service cost so much was mainly due to some changing in Timing Belt, and some replacement in left side mirror which were caused by some marafaking driver. Anyway, let's pray hard and pray more that somehow altera shares will be able to hit 25 this month la. Hahahahahah :D
Oh yeah !!! Hahahahah .... It was so excited seeing on of your hard work paid off.
I've been patiently nuturing and watering this cute, little creature, showering it with love and care for the past few days, and it showed that my hard work didn't go in vain.
As promised by all Hendrix, we promised that the first one to get their GrassHead to grow hair gets a BlowJob from the last one. I think i deserve one. Hahahahaha :D From what i observed, i think most probable i'm gonna get it from Mutumbo. Solid prove has been provided below:-
Mut's Desseted GrassHead, which i really pity that pig.
GayLord and DDCat is doing quite well, except that their water container dried off during the weekend. Hahahahaha :D I presonally think that this GrassHead thing is really a SUCKER, as it really drains off water in an uncanny speed :p Just Look at that happened to DDCat's and GayLord's cup .......
Here's GayLord's poor little GrassHead, spending his entire life miserebly in a contained ceramic cup. :(
And here's ddcat's GrassHead. His is a bit luckier than GayLord's as the least, it still go a peep to the outside world from its transparent glass from its life-term jail cell. :(
Last Sat nite, me and Dan accompanied grandpa to a Senior Citizen -Dinner & Dance- . As what we've expected, when we arrived, we seemed to be the yougest people around. Ohh i tell you, we still couldn't get rid of the nightmare that we had last year on the same event. It was damn boring, seeing all those old people dancing. Hhahahah, but i can still recall how kokidi enjoyed. Hahahaha . She joined in the line dancing despite having difficulties in catching up with the steps and beats :p
This year was no different from last year's, though the dinner was at a higher class restaurant (it was in a hotel this year). We start of from 7-8pm listening to some karaoke session. I tell you, those old folks are really well prepared. They brought they own CD folders, and put in their cd sing. Some even wear som elegent dinner dress for this particular ocassion.
Anyway, it was hard for us to get thru the 1 hour session of karaoke before food was served. Food was damn bad, and to make things worse, i sat beside a mumbling old lady who kept on grumbling on wtf wtf wtf ..... Food kept on flowing in, while all the senior citizens put up a great job in making sure that the dance floor was fully occupied at all time.
I saw my grandpa really enjoying the session, putting up some nice dance with his partner :) it was really a disappointment that i didn't take the effort to bring along my camera, giving the excuse that it was too troublesome. It wasn't after a while that the old lady sitting 2 seat next to me started a conversation with me, that i started to give attention to her.
She was an old lady, somewhere around 70+, clinging on tightly to her huge handbag, while turning to me and asked me:"Hey young man, why didn't you dance? You're so young. You should dance. I'm old already, my knee hurts." (at the same time showing me her knee bandaged)
I was somewhat emberresed and with a rather shy tone, i replied:"Oh no, we dunno how to dance la. Hahahaha"
"You should dance. Come la. Come join our every Sunday morning session's dancing class at YMCA. Somemore you have a partner. It's easier la. Like me, i dun have partner, a bit difficult la."
"ok ok. Thanks. I will try to come if i can make it"
After a while, i started to give more attention to that old, nice lady. She was no different from any other old folk. While eating, i noticed that she was constantly starring at the as-in-a-million-years overly crowded dance floor, with her eyes filled with hope. It really strucked and sadden me. I though to myself that, if only i knew how to dance, i would have rose up from my sit, and invited this humble kind hearted old lady for a dance. There were times where other gentlemen did came up to her, and i could actually see her eyes sparkled and happiness filled in her lonely eyes, but the good time never last. It was just a few minutes before she came back to her seat , and returned to her same old position.
As i've always thought that it was going to be a pathetic and boring night today, it proved me wrong. I learnt some value lessons. Treasure the ones that you love all you can while you are still capable. Do not live a life which you will regret later.
I really thanked the old lady a lot for teaching me this valuable lesson, which i believe will stay with me for the rest of my life, and for that, it really saddened me when we have to leave her alone. I gently patted her on her back, with a last smile i gave her, and the last smiled that i won't forget from her, i slowly walked away, with the image of her back slowly faded off from my sight due to the moisture of my eyes.
Holy Fak. While I was boringly surfing and reading thru Mut's blog, i find the content quite interesting, and so i tried the English test. And yes, mut has always been a english guru to me. Whenever i face with any difficulties in english, i would seek out help from him. And to my disgrace, this is what i've earned myself. A HOLY FARKING 0% vocab !!! Can you believe that ??!?!?! Shit .... luckily my mom wasn't aware of this blog .... hahahaha :D
Well, yesterday was a fine Thursday. Dan somehow managed to get back from work early, 6pm, and thus, we decided to take a light swim together.
Reached home around 6:45pm, weather was nice, no strong sun, we packed out stuff, get changed, and off we go to the swimming pool downstairs :)
My, i haven;t been swimming for almost what..... 6 months ? Anyway, swimming was part of my life last time where i used to go swimming at CRC around trice a week. I would do a 20 lap breast stroke and a 20 lap free style. That would have taken me around .... i guess ..... 45 minutes. Take a rest, and do a couple of sideways under-water-dip-within-one-breathe practice,and that will do my workout for my day :)
Anyway, yesterday, i did some breast stroke, and i felt damn lousy when i almost loose breathe after 2 laps. 2 more free style, and i felt as if my both arms are so heavy that i can no longer lift them up. On the other hand, Dan was improving after some personal training from Professor Lionel. Hahahahaha. She is now capable of reaching the other side of the pool with breast stroke with no difficulty. :)
We did some casual 10 min swimming, some 10 min fooling in the pool, and some 10 min sitting below the heavy down pour from the waterfall-like waterfall. Man, that waterfall is really very relaxing. Sitting underneath the strong current of water falling towards your back/body really feels like u are getting a massage. It really loosen all the tensed muscles from your body ache :)
Well, that's all about it. What else can i say, we really enjoyed the time spent together. Just hope that we can do that more often :)
I tell you, i have a colleague which sits near me. He has a sharp tongue which pokes everyone whenever he opens his mouth. I couldn't say much, as he was once my idol. He taught me perl, he taught me SkillCode, and he was the one who brought me in to my department. I respect him for that. But for goodness sake, i can't tolerate his tongue.
And i was somewhat pist off with his one-of-a-kind attitute. He thinks he's the best, knowing every single little thing for cameras. Whenever we newbies dun understand something and asked him, he will say something like:"I'm sorry, i think i have explain that ago. It shows that u never read emails. I'm never repeat my explanation twice."
Fine. I can take it.
Today, he faced some problem with one of my scripts. I knew that all these while he was way behind schedule for his project. And now, without even doing any further investigation, he just threw that issue to me and ddcat, and asked us to debug, putting all the blame on us during metting. I was a bit (seriously, only a bit la ...hhahaha) pist off, and i said:"Sure, i can find out the cause of the error for you, and we can put the rest of the task to tomorrow first la."
Anyway, long story shorthed, me and ddcat found out that he wasn't actually clear about the process of using our codes, and now, he requested us to come out with a code to support his requirement. I said,"Can.... Sure can. No problem." He replied,"I want it today, can arh ? I need it today la. Hehehe " .... (long silence, maybe due to the prolonged effect of using the silencer in DotA) ..... ..... .....
I tell you, I DEFINITELY not gonna produce that script for him today. I give you my word, or i am a PIG !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's an attachment that shows the email that marafaka sent to me, and CC to my boss.....
-----Original Message----- From: marafaka Sent: Thursday, June 02, 2005 4:43 PM To: me Cc: my boss Subject: fusion_batch_switch_programming - netlist problem
Please let us know once you completed the script to fix/merge the netlist up use in your layout programming for fusion_batch_switch_programming.
To be honest, things have not been going smoothly for the whole week ever since the week started.
Big Boss KP won’t be in for the rest of the week. That seize confirmed for me on surfing net for the rest of the week. To be honest, I wasn’t working for the past 4 days, which saw me most of the time surfing net, writing blogs, doing stock research, help building www.pinkbunnie.com and spamming emails.
Today, I was left out in a mailing list, which for some unknown reason, and some miscommunication between friends occurred. Anyway, wasn’t the HENDRIX’s fault. I acknowledge their apology. Apology accepted. No hard feelings :)(but that has strengthen my intuition on some harder road ahead)
Lunch time today ended up with me driving, with ddcat and Faggoty From tagging along. DotA game was damn gross. Me(silencer), ddcat(earth shaker), mut(lich), gay(lion) VS LH(rhasta), SB(throl), FF(drow), PIM(as in a million years, Furion). No signs of improvement shown in my playing skills. Me and ddcat started of in the middle lane, facing LH and FF, while gay vs pim on the right lane , and mut fighting SB on the left. Me and ddcat wasn’t holding up the middle lane quite well, and out tower was the first to fall.
I noticed something. Everything that I’ve took up since my early year, experience have taught me that there will come a stage whereby the graph for improvement VS practice will go inversely exponential.
I always started of picking up something new quite fast. With a little bit of practice and research, improvements flow in flawlessly. It will then come to a period whereby although u’ve put in thousands and millions of hard work in it, the progress seems negligible. Everyone eventually will face that. That’s where patience play a vital role. I think I’m on that stage now. What I have to figure out is how can I further improve my game. How can I use more brain cells while playing instead of just shouting and screaming across tables to scare off enemies. I need to practice SMART, not practice HARD.
Anyway, that’s all for DotA’s part. Now, on the way back to Altera after the DotA session, I was in the meditation of finding lights on what should I do to prevent stagnant performance in my DotA gameplay, while ddcat was trying his very best to give FF a last chance to be back in the circle-of-directors for BS. I could hardly express it in words, so I figured out it’s best for me to show it as below:-
ddcat:”FF, so, do you still wanna be part of BS? Caz if not, it’s better for you to get your own prepaid membership and pay while u’re playing la ….. “
FF:”Err…. no la. You see, I have some stocks in my Ameritrade, and that capital is huge. I need time to monitor it. Some more, I extimated wrongly that the time needed for BS was so significant. I actually have to do research on stocks at StarBucks everynight, and you see, everyone has only 24 hours, how can I manage that? I think it’s good for me to pull out now la.”
ddcat:”ok la then. We will give you back your share of money this month. I think it’s better for you to get your own prepaid member to play at BS then.”
FF:”hahahaah … ok… so who’s gonna take up my share?I think it’s better for you guys also la, so u guys can earn more when I pull out from BS ma. Furthermore, u see, if each of you guys get part of my RM25k shares, you guys will be earning extra … err … say …. RM2k / month … WAhhh hahahaha …. Everyone will be overpower already …. Hahahaha ….Anyway, next time la. Maybe next time when my stocks are more stable, and when u guys gonna open BS2, then I might chip in a portion of my capitol with you guys in BS2 la.”
I assure you that I didn’t put anything extra there. At this moment, I was still trying my very best to keep my composure. While making a turn at the traffic lights to the round-a-bout, ddcat spotted a stretch of shop lots in orange colour for rent. And here goes again:-
ddcat:”Wah …. It would be nice if we could buy up one lot and rent it to people.”
FF:”Eh eh, serious ? If you wan, then we go for it. Hahaha. I think I am more interested in property investment. Makes more sense. Don’t know how much out capitol should be har ? Come come, want or not ? How much capital u have?“
ddcat:”Hahaha … I have no capital”
FF:”Cheh, no capital then don’t talk la … hahahaha … anyway, next time if you guys wanna have property investment, invite me ok? I’m more interested in property investment. We can be partners la.”
That’s should be all about it. I believe that’s more than enough to spoil my whole day’s mood. And again, I assure you, dear HENDRIX, we are friends, always friends, I know the miscommunication thing wasn’t you guys fault. No matter what, We will always be intact. Nothing is more fulfilling that thinking back of all those sweet memories with you guys. And I believe we are a true bunch of friends. Don’t worry J
My oh my ...... ddcat just came back from Cameron Highlands with his family in conjunction of celebrating lilCat's birthday. I was touched that i actually do receive a souvenir from ddcat. How sweet that was. Thanks ddcat. Really appreciate it. :)
Anyway, here's what he has got us. I personally name it as GrassHead. In case u guys don’t know what it does, it’s actually a hay stack packed in a net, with some wheats’ seeds planted on top of its head. You soak it in water, and in no time, the wheat will grow, giving you a very pleasant sight :)Kokidi once bought a very HUGE one, and place it in her cubicle. Hahahaha….. Anyway, cut the crab, picture speaks a thousand words……
Yupe. This is the GrassHeadgift from ddcat, brought back from Cameron Highlands. Hehe .... Isn't he cute ? ;)
Finally find some purpose for this small cup, having sitting in my cubicle form dunno how many years, collecting dust. errr..... I believe it was a grft from SX when back from San Jose.... err .... am i right ? Hahahaha .... forgot liao.
Ok. Here you go. GrassHead fits in perfectly in the cup :)
Another angle , from top view :)
Ok. So this is the finalised location where GrassHead is gonna spend his life. Sitting on top of my monitor. Hahaha :D
Anyway, that's all about it. We the HENDRIX have been having an internal challenge on who's GrassHead will have his hair grow first. Hahahaha.... I am really looking forward to that.
And oh yes, one last thing, special thanks to pixFish , for lending me his ISUX500 for taking all these shots. I know, i didn't lend you my D70, and asked for your ISUX500, which was really too much. Hahahah. But seriously D70 is my 2nd wife, and i hope you understand my situation la. Really appreciate your ISUX. Thx :)
I believe it all started since 5 years ago when i was working out in CRC gym. While sitting on an up-right chair, doing some shoulder-press, i somehow got my left shoulder dislocated. Ouch ...... >_< i know..... it hurts. But it really didn't hurt much that time. But somehow, i notice a deterioration of strength and agility on my left arm.
I didn't pay much attention to it though, until 3 year ago when i start to have some neck/back pain on my left side of my body. I personally think that is was a combination of the prolonged effect (learnt this phrase from GayLord... hahahah) of my dislocated arm, and some accesive 8hr/day computer staring everyday. I has been kinda quite frustrating. It gets worse when pressure and tension starts to build up.
Anyway, the pain and agony sometimes drive me crazy and it thins of my patient, which is why i believe i'm sometimes quick hot tempered lately. It's getting from bad to worse for the past few days, and i think i'm gonna get a massage next week. Damn ..... Pressure and tension starts building up ..... Work .... Work ... Work .....
BURAHAHAHahahahahahha ..... After weeks of hard troubleshooting, trying to get my pc and GarLord's pc linked up, and with lots of help from technicle support from ddcat with no avail, i finally made it work with my own genius gene cells from my brain last nite :p
Rupa-rupanya, it was the firewall setting which was from my PC-cilin software. No wonder we still couldn't get our pc linked up after turning off the firewall setting from Window XP. Hahahahahah :D
And so, we tried a game of DotA last nite, Gay-Lion VS Achil-Rhasta. Gosh, damn Slow, and hang. U know what ? We later found out that someone was stoooopid enough not to close off all the applications before running WarCraft III. Damn it. I was already on my way of MEGA PAWNING ..... HAHAHAHAHAH :D
Whew .... Last sunday, Dan went for facial in Perangin Mall, i took the opportunity to have some shooting. I couldn't recall when was my last time i used my D70. Anyway, below are a few shots (which i personally think is VIEWABLE by public) that i've taken by utilizing the 1 1/2 hour, and here it goes ....
I was on my way to Botanical garden, as there's some floral exhibition this week, but it was way too crowded, and nothing much to shoot. On my way back filled with disappointment, i came across an indian temple with pigeons across the road. This is what i have :)
Seeing that i still have some time left, i quickly drove my car up to Sri York, which i often jog there. I've been having this urge to take some pics on the garden filled with beautiful flower all along when i was jogging. Too bad the weater wasn't that nice that day (hahahaha... i know, it's just an excuse for saving my face on all these poor quality pix :P)
And here's a shot which i tried on the zooming effect. Cool huh ? :)
For some time, i still don't understand what's the reason some people go to gym. For me, gym is a place to release pressure, let go of my tension, and of course, to work out my body, mental and physical fitness. The best thing about gym is that, i can go workout and sweat the hell out regardless of what's the weather is. I like sweating. I still remember last time when i was still staying with grandpa, i used to hit the sack at 5:15pm sharp from office, and go to CRC gym. If i'm alone, i would switch off all the fans, and let my sweat drain out as much as i can. The stress and tension from a day's work will all be gone together with it :)
Ever since i moved to Vistaria, i no longer patronise CRC's gym, as it is way to far, and so, i go to my office's gym, which is quite often. For some unknown reason, people in my office like to work out with the air-con switched on. I HATE that. Not only it prevents the sweat from coming out, it's also bad for health, breathing in cold air while u are exhausted. What's wrong with all those people, and i really don't understand them. Why in the hell would you wanna come to gym if u don;t want to sweat? Might as well go masturbate in a meeting room? Farkers !!!
Please people. Gym is a place for workout, for sweating. If you don;t want to sweat, then go elsewhere. Be more considerate.
Sigh ..... :( Sales drop further down as more and more photo submitters joining the site. I have yet to receive any Photo-Per sales, and sales for this month was just a mere $8+. Might it be due to the poor participation of me in submitting new photos to the site ? Hmmm .... Anyway, Dan just went for a facial session yesterday for 2 hours at Perangin Mall, and i took that time to have some nice bird-flower-shooting session. I dun understand why, but seems like my creativity have been taking a plunge since.....since ...err....(since when har ??? ) but yes, there has been a significant downturn of my creativeness lately. Was it due to excessive DotA ? Was it due to Insufficient exercise ? I think i better get back in shape, and repolish myself.
Hopefully i have time in the up-coming week to tweak/upload my pictures, and hopefully that will boost up my sales for the month :)
Anyway, i will share some of those nice pigeons/flowers/scenary's pix tomorrow (if i remember to bring the cd, and if i have time la) :)
When i first moved in to my apartment in Vistaria, DDCat gave me a bowl, and in it lived a nice siamese fighting fish (Betta), with a hybrid of Blue and purple red. Although Dan and Me didn't seem to express much concern on it, we both know that slowly we have fallen in love with it. Although we are both sometimes quite busy, I still take the effort to fork out a minute or 2 to keep its bowl clean. Dan would keep on asking me to not to forget to feed it. J
As time passes by, we noticed its inliveliness staying alone in an isolated bowl, and we therefore had it transferred to our big 4x2 feet aquarium community.
life seems to improve for John-Blue. He enjoys his days in his new environment, spending most of his time chasing other fishes, showing off his manhood by flashing its gills at them. It’s just so satisfying and happy to be able to see it swim freely and makes his own bubble nest under a hidden pile of wood log.
This Sunday, when we came back, we found out that our beloved John-Blue was half skinned. Little had I notice that the pain resides within me is actually growing intensely until now, that I have time to actually flash back thru all the sweet memories me and Dan had together while watching him swim freely. It never failed to amuse us whenever we watch him eats those round little fish food. He was so full or energy and charm. I felt as though I’ve lost a long lost friend. It really saddened me right now L
Anyway, Rest In Peace my friend. Your name will always be part of our(Me and Dan) lives, and we do pray for you to be able to be born as a human in your next life, to have a better life next life.
As for now, I think we will adopt and introduce another new Siamese fighting fish to our aqua community. Although no other fighting fish can replace the lost of a true friend as you, we hope that it could relief some of the pain in our hearts.
I received this email this afternoon, and I really dun understand why people in this world is so cruel into cheating others' hard earned money. Just becuase they know a little bit of IT skills doesn;t give them the right to do such things. I believe there will be cause and effect, and i curse those people that comes out with the below idea. You are one big Hell Son Of A Bitch.

21 Jan - 17 Feb Robin A cool exterior disguises a fiery temper and is very opinionated - although those opinions are not always shared by everyone. They are proud and particularly home-loving, although have a tendency to be quarrelsome.
18 Feb - 17 March Goldfinch Goldfinch people are colorful characters who are sensitive and always alert. They are gregarious by nature and love being in groups of people, which offers them security. They need to find an outlet for their imaginative abilities or they are sometimes be in danger of becoming nervous and irritable.
18 March - 14 April Hawk A powerful individual which displays courage and a sometimes ruthless determination. Avoids problematical obstacles with skill, although must be fully targeted so as not to waste energy in fruitless chases for the impossible.
15 April - 12 May Albatross Has a tendency to have a mind that wanders, but when in search of a particular goal, will travel great lengths to achieve it. Occasionally, the albatross may become caught up in things it shouldn't when not seeing clearly enough.
13 May - 9 June Dove Peace-loving by nature, doves will bill and coo about things close to their heart. They enjoy a fulfilling love-life and rarely fail to satisfy. They are also patient, adaptable and personable. Their lack of aggression sometimes makes them the victim of more predatory characters.
10 June- 7 July Eagle A well-respected figure which has excellent visionary qualities. Eagles will truck no nonsense and will fix opponents with a powerful stare. They have the power to rise above the trivial aspects of humanity, and are highly talented.
8 July- 4 August Nightingale More often heard before being seen, nightingales always have something to say for themselves. They are however very much in tune with their partners. Their unimpressive exterior hides a personality that is just waiting to burst out.
5 August - 1 Sept Kingfisher Another flamboyant and colorful character that is always exciting to encounter. They rush around at great speed and have a close spiritual affinity with water. They have a sharp and perceptive head on them, but can make them impetuous enough to dive in where others would fear to go.
2 Sept - 29 Sept Swan The swan is a complex character. While appearing on the surface as a calm and relaxed individual, underneath they are working hard to keep up with the pace of modern life. If provoked their natural graceful demeanor can give way to a violent temper which puts them in a flap. They are definitely someone to have on your side.
30 Sept - 27 Oct Woodpecker A tough, hard-working character with plenty of stamina. Has no problem drumming up support for their ideas, no matter how wacky they seem. With a lateral-thinking mind they are skilled at dissecting problems and seeing the wood for the trees. However, with their noisy and exuberant lifestyle, you might not want to have one as a neighbor.
28 Oct - 24 Nov Kestrel A sharp brain helps kestrel people hover from one subject to another without losing concentration. They focus on their life's goal with a single-minded focus, not flustered by what is going on around them. A confidence in their own ability helps them to soar to heights others may only dream of.
25 Nov - 23 Dec Raven Always impressive, raven people are a tower of strength. They are more intelligent than their peers and are adept problem-solvers. They enjoy challenges are stimulated by wild and exposed places.
24 Dec - 20 Jan Heron Heron people are deceptive. Although they may be solitary individuals for much of the time, they nevertheless have a need to settle in busy communities where they know everyone else. They may get bogged down as they wade the course of life, but have broad enough shoulders to cope with weighty issues. But their insecure nature often leads them to fish for compliments.
Yesterday, there was a heavy pour during morning session. I have a friend by the nick of cat got his head lights turned on and left it as it was for the rest of the day. And yeah, you've guessed it. His car needed jump start so that he can leave office sharp at 5:15pm by living up to his 9-5 lifetime principal.
Anyway, i helped him jump start his car by using my car's battery, and off he goes. Some common misunderstanding on why a car couldn't get started when u forgot to turn off you head lights is not because the energy with the battery has worn off. Come on la, how could the battery leaks all its energy within 8 short hours, where an ordinary fresh battery could have lasted you at least 3 years of heavy pumping every day ?
Actually, the fact is, when ur lights are on without moving your car, your battery, which its conducting field is in fact some Sulfuric Acid (H2SO4), is actually being broken down by the charges from the battery to Water(H2O) + Oxigen(O2) + Sulfur(S). (Hopefully i get these formula right from what i've studied during my high school chemistry class.) The Sulfur that is formed starts building up agains the metal conducting plate of the battery, thus preventing further electrons to flow thru , and that is the reason why the battery can no longer produce energy. Once you've started your car(jump stsart), the sulfur starts to melt and dissolved in the acid (or something like that la), and thus, allowing electrons to continue flowing / travelling from the -ve metal plate to the +ve metal plate, and everything will be back to normal :)
More reading is availabe here if you are interested in knowing more about it :)
Ok. As i've promised, i took the effort yesterday once i got back from work, to shoot some shots of some of the community that i would like to introduce to everyone. Gay was somehow damn suspicious on me trying to snipe him thru the glass on the other side of my aquarium. Anyway, now, allow me to introduce to you, some of my friends at Achillies-Aqua...
This is one of the 2 sailfin mollies that kokidi bought for me last Sunday. They are kind of fat (and i really mean fat), overly fat, and it's cute when u see them swim around unbalancely, swivering from left-to-right :)
This 2 silver angle fish were also Kokidi's item, from the same batch as the sailfin molly , which arrived last Sunday. I've always wanted them to join the community, but couldnt' get a nice, beautiful pair. Thanks to kokidi for fulfilling my dreams :)
Here's another angle of these 2 angels of the aquarium. Aren't they pretty ? :)
This blue betta was somehow a bit blur. I just couldn't find any pateince taking another shot of it, as the urge for chasing my 24 series is reaching orgasm. Well, this elegant betta was given to me by DDcat when i first set up my aquarium, in a small rounded bowl. Eventually, i found it quite lonely and unlively staying alone in the bowl all the time (where the truth is actually i am lazy of washing the bowl twice every week), and so, now this John-Blue (Dan named it that way, as this Blue Betta was originated from PH :p) is now one of the community in my aqua, swimming lively all the time, enjoying chasing all the babes Gouramies. :)
This red platty is pretty shy hidding as she just joined the community 2 days ago, together with the same batch from Kokidi's package :p They came in 2 pairs, 1/2 the size smaller than the original occupants of my aquarium :)
Red nose rummy, one of the Tetra species, are one of the famous choice for most fresh water fish keepers. They, together with the Neon Tetras, makes the aquarium more colourful by adding tones to the community. Similarly to the Neon Tetras, they are schoolers, as all tetras are :)
It’s hard to believe that Kokidi has been here for 6 months. Time really flies. I still remembered clearly that when we first received the news that kokidi has gotten an internship training contract in my office, both of us are so happy, as we got the chance to work together.
I introduced her to some of my close friends. We the Hendrix “fockerized” her. Hahahahaha. She joined us for DotA on every occasion when opportunity arises. We had some bad times, and no doubt some great moments together. We enjoyed the series and laughter from “FRIENDS” together. We went to some pasar malam at Sungai Ara on Fridays. We swam in Vistaria’s swimming pool (although it only happened once :p ) We had the chance to celebrate mother’s day together, and my father’s b’day on the last day before she departs.
As the last day, in the spirit of spending more time with Kokidi before she leaves, Me, Dan and Kokidi went shopping together at GurneyPlaza. We visited the pet store, gave Kokidi her favourite food, Sushi King, bought birthday cake for my father together at Secret Recipe, had dinner together at grandpa’s house, sang b’day song together for my dad, and that’s it : )
The last thing I know, she went to “Chew Thean Yang” and bough a big pack of fresh water fish back for my aquarium. That’s sooooo sweet : )I believe she spent her quality time there did some research and picking, as she told me that she initially got some snow white cichlids, Elephant nose, and Albino Shark for me, but somehow the shop assistant told her that those fishes are not compatible with the community I had in my aquarium, which comprises ofTetras, Gourami, and tamed based creature. And so, finally she changed all the fishes to 4 red nose rummy, 2 silver red eyes angles. I will post up some pix once I got the chance of shooting them J
Anyway, just gave her a call this morning, and she reached there safe and sound already. All the best to you, Kokidi. : )
I just started my 24 Season 2 last Friday. The story started off with Jack Bauer got called back to CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) for action after some time since his wife got killed by Nina Myers. Reason was because a Nucleur Bomb is about to be detonated within the next 24 hours (well, that's the name of the show, isn't it ? Hahahaha )
One thing strucked my attention was, the password of Geonge Mason's(CTU highest ranking personnal) pc was .... hahaha ...... HENDRIX. Was it a coincident ? Or what ? I don;t know. Well, if you ask me why is this word so special to me, well, here it goes.
I was once a music freak, and i somehow joined a jamming with all my colleagues (organised by some people la, or was it me ? forgot already ...hahah). We started of with tonnes of participants, and ..... ahem ..... (using Pimp's tone) ..... as in a million years, (using back my tone) not everyone last, and we ended up having the last few people in the group, which is....
and so, this is where we got to know each other. With time past, our bond between us gets stronger, with email spamming 5-and-fro everyday between ur OutLook. We finally decided to name our team a name, and ...aha .... you've guessed it, some faggot fella suggested we give it as HENDRIX, and this is how we got the name ;)
It has been quite some time since we last jam, as we've turned our concentration towards DotA (Defence Of The Ancient). I just hope that we can someday find some time and jam together once again :p I believe i've lost touch on all my musical instruments since my last piece of song i've composed for Dan 2 years ago. I just missed those long sweet moments of composing songs and making music. Anyway, I'm now trying my best to pick up smooth jazz. Some songs that i love right now which i've came across is Girl From Ipanema (Of course, this definitely is the best Bossa Nova tempo ), Desafinado, some of George Micheal's song like AS, :)
I have this wierd feeling whenever i see people using the toilets specially reserved for disabled. What in the hell is so great of these toilets? I really don't understand how the others think, but for sure, all those highly educated morons in my office definitely like to patronise one of these instead of going for the normal gents.
I was once almost partially disabled, due to a severe knee dislocation injury, and was facing with the dilemma of having to cramp my bursting bowels and urine back to my bladder and colon, just to wait for some crappy healthy abled asshole out from the disabled's toilet.
I don't mean to be rude, but can someone tell me why they can't just use the normal gents' room for nature's call? Is it maybe that their wee weeis way to small to show it to others, or was it maybe they think they have some special thing that others don;t have, that others would take a peek on theirs?
So next time, people, be more considerate. Don’t ever ASSUME that there are no disabled personal who is in need of that special washroom. Don’t take anything which you don’t need. Leave it for those that might need it. Don’t be an asshole, don’t be a WEE WEE MORON !!!
Last nite was a short one for me. Me and Dan reached home quite early as we opt for dinner at Jalan Tengah, thus avoiding all the usual traffic jam to the roundabout. Had durians that we bought back from Tesco yesterday. Yummy yummy, really very nice and enjoyable.
While Dan was watching TV, I took the opportunity to download the BitComet software. Later on, I tried to watch some DotA replays which I’ve downloaded fromsome semi / finals competition, but seems like those were 1.17 patch, and the latest patch everyone is using is already 1.18 patch. Darn. Tried several ways to watch the replay , ended up to no avail. Got damn frustrated.
Felt a bit dizzy and tired, went to take my bath. It was , and we both felt somehow worn off, and so, did our gongyo, and went to bed by .
I felt as if I was on my way of getting a flu. My whole body aches when I woke up this morning. I somehow sprained my left index finger while sleeping last nite, which feels an acute pain whenever I moved it. Lunch time, we went to DotA, and I played a very very bad game. Nothing seems to be going my way. Anyway, I’m way behind my investing plan. I have left behind my candle charting skills and lost track of stocks lately as I didn’t follow the market trend for quite some time. I think it high time I tighten my pants, be more hard working and get back on track. I think I better dedicate at least 1-2 hours of self study/practice on my trading skills if I really want to achieve financial freedom by year 2015.
I must tell you , the gift dress which i bought for our 4th anniversary really saved my life. On the way back home after work, we both were so excited on the up coming dinner at chef & brew in conjuction with our 4th year anniversary celebration. I dunno it was by mean or by chance, the topic of getting a present pops up again. As usual, i told her that, i have no time to get gifts, bla bla bla, and promise that i will go get a gift for her this coming saturday together with her. I tell you, that stare and that disappointment in her eyes really breaks my heart. Although she kept on saying that she's not angry, and repeats that she wasn't disappointed at all, because without any expectation, where comes the disappointment was the answer given. Oh Gosh .....
The whole trip back home was a quiet and embarrassing one, which mostly me doing most of the talking, and her doing he nodding. Straight away Dan went to take her bath without wasting any time after reaching home. I sneakily took out the gift (a dress) which I has transferred into my briefcase from the car booth earlier, together with the Card I prepared for her with our family pix attached :p
Oh My …. The smile and excitement and joy filled in her eyes, shown in her face is worth all the little hard work that I’ve put in in getting this surprise plan out.
We head towards Chew&Brew, and had a really hefty dinner J I had a Sizzling Grill fish steak with a cup of fresh milk while Dan has a Sizzling Ribeye with Ice Chocolate.
After dinner, we head on to Tesco for so window shopping. While I was watching at Dan smiling sweetly when she was choosing her necklace, the incident that happened exactly 4 years ago slowly flows across my mind, as if it just happened yesterday. I still remembered clearly that day. I was still in the old wing, shoving my ass hard, trying to get the stooopid LVS clean on DALI project. It was . I just received an email from Dan, which was my long time pen pal for almost 5 years, which at that time, was just 2 month in Brisbane, Australia, GriffithUniversity starting off her degree course. She was feeling down at that time, and I tried to comfort her by all means. We somehow poured out our feelings for each other, and this is how everything started : )
Anyway, all in all, it was a wonderful 4th year anniversary for the both of us. We don’t need wonders to keep our love alive, We don’t need surprises to keep the fire burning, All everyone need is some effect and hard work, to keep the relationship stronger and the bond closer J
For a while, i tot romance have left me far behind. Time flies. We have been together for almost 4 years. It never strucked me until a fews ago when i took a glance at my PDA, and found out that .... "Gosh ..... 17th of May, Anniversary".
I once mistaken Ramance as an essential skill that needs lots of creativity to master. Not soon later that i came across a book from Liu2 Yong1, a chinese motivator/author that he mentioned in one of his book, "To be romatic doesn't require creativeness, all it takes is Hard Work.".
I do admit that creativity does contribute some bonus points towards your romantic skills, but I have to say that what plays the most important role in it is your hardwork. Most of the time, people take for granted of what they have had, and never enrich the essence of it. I for one, have been taking that for granted for way too long a time. It really doesn;t need a brain like Einstien to be romantic. A simple small gift once in a while to show your care for her, or maybe a simple line of I Love you would suffice the purpose. People tends to get lazy when everything is already so common to them, Well, sad to say, i drop into one of this category :(
We've been together for 4 years. I always think that, being together, staying together, and sticking with each other all the time rips off the flexibility for me to be romantic. I find excuses of not being able to get her presents / gifts due to the fact that she always sticks to me, and that gives me no time to buy her a surprise gift. I finally came to my sense that, that is a farking lame excuse, and from now on, i will love her with all my heart, and treat her well, with the way she wants it, fill her with romance and most important is, be more hardworking, and create more romantic situations for her, for me, for us :)
Last Sunday, when we went to Guyney for a movie, we bought some grocery. As we do not want to carry all those bags into the theather, i therefore find a chance to make Dan stay with kokidi while i keep all those groceries in the car. I wasn't that time consuming after all once you've make up your mind to be more hardworking and more romantic. It took me around 5-10mins to N-ZONE, a fashion shop located next to the cinema for choosing the right dress, which cost me only RM50, and another 5 mins to send all the groceries to my car, including keeping that present nicely covered in the car booth. :)
Today, 17th of May, will be the day of our 4th anniversary being together. I've dated my dearest Danielle to Chef & Brew for a dine. It wasn't my first choice, but it was hers, but it doesn;t matter :) All i want is just to bring her to a romantic dinner, leave the present on her dressing table tonight, make her the most happy person in the world tonight, for thanking her for spending the last 4 years, and the coming 100 years with me ~~~
Last Sunday, me, Dan and Kokidi went to Gurney Plaza to watch Kingdom Of Heaven for the 3:30pm show. It wasn't a bad show, neither was it an outstanding show. Verdict from me would be 65%, which is average. Here goes the synopsis:-
KINGDOM OF HEAVEN is an epic adventure about a common man (Orlando Bloom) who finds himself thrust into a decades-long war. A stranger in a strange land, he serves a doomed king, falls in love with an exotic and forbidden queen, and rises to knighthood. Ultimately, he must protect the people of Jerusalem from overwhelming forces – while striving to keep a fragile peace.
Orlando Bloom (Balian of Ibelin) Liam Neeson (Godfrey of Ibelin) Eva Green (Sybilla)
I just received this from a friend of mine, and dunno how true is this. Anyway, if you guys happen to have the chance to try it, please do lemme know the outcome ok ? Thanks :)
you see, i was THAT BORED waiting for a train in KLIA while i was on my way back from a trip the other day, that i somehow manage to figure out a way to travel from KLIA to Sentral in less than RM15 by train, in an hour's time.
I was taking a KLIA transit, which runs between:
Sentral(1) -- Bandar Tasik Selatan(2) -- Putrajaya(3) -- Salak Tinggi(4) -- KLIA(5) the whole journey is in 35 minutes.
However, as i was reading the brochure for fares, i suddenly noticed something really RIDICULUOUS.
Usually to encourage passagers to travel more, the further a passanger travel, the less the charges per kilometre will be. but it works exactly the other way round in this case! you see, the fares from the transit go like these:
look for the difference in fares for the last two destinations. If travelling from Sentral(1) to Salak Tinggi(4) cost you 12.50, and from Sentral(1) to KLIA(5) cost you RM 35.00, then logically speaking the travelling cost between Salak Tinggi(4) and KLIA(5) should be at least RM23.50 right?
well, wrong! in actual fact, they charge only RM3.20 from Salak Tinggi(4) to KLIA(5)!
what does this mean? this means that the breakeven point for the whole journey of KLIA to Sentral doesnt cost the Transit company anything more than RM 15.70. Also, it means that the KLIA Transit company is actually PENALISING/TAKING ADVANTAGE FROM passangers/foreign travellers who travel directly to KLIA from Sentral. that is because, if you take a train from Sentral(1) or the Bdr Tasik Selatan Interchange(2) to any stations in between [ie: putrajaya(3) or Salak Tinggi(4)], get out from the station and from the same station purchase a new ticket to KLIA; that costs you at least A HALF cheaper than you travelling directly from sentral/Bdr Tasik Selatan to KLIA!!
so from kepong, one actually only needs to pay RM 2.20 to reach bdr. tasik selatan, pay RM5.30 to reach putrajaya, from putrajaya get a new ticket to KLIA at RM6.20.All in all it cost only RM13.70, this is at least RM 22 cheaper than the common route of kepong-sentral-KLIA (ERL).
one thing to bear in mind however, is since the KLIA transit only runs every 30 minutes, so one will have to wait for half an hour in the interchange station.but then again, for frequent fliers or economic fliers like me, or students, this is no doubt a good way to save up. it is faster and more convenient than coach, and definitely cheaper than the ERL.
everything sux. When dota-allstars.info merged with dota-allstars.com, all the stuff got messed up. and all the pictures and stuff sux. Things were not easily accessible as last time, and i have to waste my time coming up with this page just to make linking to dota images easier. Fak those people. Fak.
This is the last Friday Kokidi gonna be in penang, after that she will be going back to KL for her final year in UTAR, and so, me, Dan and Kokidi decided to go to Pasar Malam at Sungai Ara for the last time. We bought lots of things back for dinner. 2 packs of Sup Lembu beehoon, 2 Roti Kebab, 6 fried Chicken Gizzards, 40 fried lekoh. And oh yeah, we met ddcat & family, and on the way back, we met Batu . Hahahhahah. Damn happy to have meet friends during outing :)
Oh my , we had a really fulfilling dinning that night. I knew that we were gonna need lots of energy tonight, and thus, i ate a lot .... hahahaha .... stuff myself with all the energy i needed for tonight :p
9:30, gaylord came back. Waited for him to take his bath, and of me/kokidi/gaylord go in my car to .
Oh my, we had a really enjoying time playing DOTA that night. The time table was like that:-
10pm-12am me/kokidi/ddcat VS gay/batu/FF 12-2am me/kokidi/ddcat/mut/mel VS sb/gay/ff/batu/pim 2-3am went mamak for drink/supper 3-4am 2 last game.
Man, i must tell you, the 12-2am game was the best of all. lots of Team Work involves (started souding like SB :p) most of the time, these are the characters we used.......
Basically, i lost count of the winning-losing ratio. All i knew was, this was the best ever DOTA game that i've played so far. Hahahahaha :D
Me and Dan went Hakkan mee for dinner yesterday nite, then we walked over to the side for some fishy shopping to top up our aquarium tail-count :p
Have been wanting to buy Neon Tetras for a long long time, but seems like not many people selling it, main reason is because the fragility of the fish. It is very difficult to keep the fish alive. I bargain with the boss, and he gave me 11 for RM6. We were so happy when we released the fishes into our aqua. It added colours to our aqua, like rainbows beautifying the sky. :)
Nothing is more heart broken than noticing that there were only 6 Neons left in my aqua this morning. Oh gosh ....... I really dun know what i should do. I guess i'll go get more Neons when i go Hakka Mee again. Neons are schoolers, and so, they got to be in groups, not singled, not even PAIRS, but school. The more the merrier, and the higher chance of keeping the fish alive. Anyway, some snapshots :p
Oh, he claimed to be my lifetime partner. hahhahaha. Anyway, this shot was taken 2 days ago when i bought "Sa Bo Kai Fan" for him as his dinner. Man, i tell you, this guy eats a lot. Really realy eats a lot. One thing i can't tahan about this guy is, he eats like a baby. He likes to stuff lotsa lotsa lotsa stuff in his mouth, chew chew chew, before swallowing, stuff stuff stuff more and more and more into mouth, munch munch munch, then like a small kid, suck all the juice out from the rice, so that the content get compressed, and stuff some more, stuff stuff stuff, until his mouth is about to explode ..... Hahahahah :D
No worries, i will keep my eyes and D70 machine gun ready from now on, and when i find any funny/nice candid shots, i will post them up .... HAHhahhaahha :D
hehehe ... when i was about to go for a jog as usual during one of those days, i was actually looking at my aquarium, and found out i actually can see "thru" the glass and water from my aquarium. I wasted no more time, grep my D70, and quickly took some snapshots of Dan muching on some of her favourite dish, the Tit-Bits potato chips :p hehehehe ......
Isn't she lovely and adorable ? :) Lope lope ^.^ ^.^ ^.^
Monday 8-10am :- Fusion Design Review Meeting (Which i dun understand why was I in the meeting) Tuesday 9-10am :- Cad Departmental Meeting
...... and for the past 2 days, Fusion project has been keeping me damn farking busy, and so, i have no time to update my blog. Damn it !!!
...... StimX is still giving me FARKING SHIT answers, which is damn disaapointing and frustrating ......
...... All in all, very busy, as everything is coming towards me suddenly, and now, that stoooopid botak chin and his Botak Boss is cumming over to my cube to discuss something ..... Sigh ~~~~~ bz bz bz ~~~~
Lately, i found out that there was a sparrow nest near the corridor of the lift at my apartment. I've always planned to set up my tripod and take a good snapshot on those cute lil sparrows, doing a journal on their journey of life, but seems like time doesn;t allow me to do so.
This morning, on my way to work, when me and Dan was waiting for the lift to come up to level 10, we found out that the one of the lil fella is down dead :(( Another one is beside it, jumping around the dead body. I believe they got blew down by the heavy storm last nite. I was so sad to see that happened, and to my surprise, Dan agreed to let me bring that small lil fella (which is still alive) back home tonight when we get back, if it is still alive. All i can do right now is just pray hard that it can last till the time when i get back, and i will set some dry straw for it in a box, and feed it with some bread crumps. I just hope that it can survive ...... poor little fella.... :(
Last nite, after coming back from a hefty home-made curry fish head dinner at my grandpa's house, me and Dan sleezed on our sofa with laziness sets in. We decided to watch Shall We Dance, starring Richard Gere & Jeniffer Lopez.
Dan has already seen it b4. It was my first time. Oh gosh, it was a really touching, and romatic/comedy movie. John Clark (Richard Gere) is a very happily married man. He has everything in the world a man would craved for, money, big house, nice job, and happy family. All he wanted more was to be happier, a hobby. It was a very touching movie. I always like this kind of movie a lot.
One more thing that i found out myself was that, whenever i am watching this kind of movie, i hate people that interrupts my MOOD while i'm in it. Dan stepped into me a few times, talking with me, and without any self conciouse, i think i answered back pretty rudely. Anyway, i felt bad later on, and appologies for my irrational behaviour. We had a hearty talked, and i told her that whenever i'm in think kind of movie, i while-heartedly put myself into the whole scene of it, and at no circumstances like to be interrupted. I just wanna watch the movie quietly, slowly digesting the romantic and touching feel that is embedded in it, putting myself into the actor's shoes. I guess that's one hell of my wierd character. :p
And, oh yeah, i have to quickly pass this DVD back to my grandpa. Me and Dan bought this DVD for his, and he has been questioning me for the whole day where the farking hell has his DVD gone to, which i have only took back for 1 week .... hahaha .... He treasures his dancing dvds and tapes like nobody else biz .... and hahahaha ... i still remembered he asked me to dup his MACARENA video tape into VCD, which i believe ddcat helped me into achieving that last time... hahaha :D
Last Sat, all of us decided to celebrate Mother's day one day before the real day, to avoid crowd, and to celebrate Mother's day together with my Father's b'day :)
Anyway, me and Dan was suppose to meet them at 6:45pm, but we were a bit late, and so, we decided to meet each other at the Restaurant, the Oriental Seafood at Macalister Road.
On the was, after turning into Yeap Chor Yee, i took the middle lane. The right lane leads to the traffic lights that turn into KAYU. Suddenly a Bronze Kia, number plate P?? 5099 (can't recall the exact number plate), who is taking the right lane tried to eat into my lane. I was surprised by that sudden act, and quickly swerved to my left, and guess what ? My left mirror got smashed off by an on coming lorry. That really FREAKED my out. Out of rage and anger, i raced my car towards that FARKING BRONZE Kia, P?? 5099 ..... yeah ..... READ IT and KEEP IT in you mind. It was turining into the PEKAKA right turn , and so i pulled my car over next to it ..... P?? 5099 BRONZE KIA. Don;t every forget that FARKING @$$Hole number plate. i scrolled down my window, the driver was a farking-no-that-old-cibai-bin-pukiayam-type driver. The passanger to the right might be her lancheow mother. Anyway,
i asked her :"Just now u ate into my lane, and i had to avoid banging you, and now my left mirror is smashed by a lorry, so how ?" ..........
and to my FARKING surprise, this was the pukimak's answer :"Oh well, i've put my indicator to the left, and u should see it." "WHAT ?!?!?!? It doesn't mean that u can turn in once u put your indicator ok ? You have to look out for cars too...."
"NO no no no no.... I've put my indicator, and there are cars in front of me. you should have seen my indicator......"
"NO !!!! Putting on your indicator doesn't mean u can TURN in whenever u like. U need to LOOK OUT TOO !!!! So how right now ? "
"what how ? U din look out for my indicator, and now what u want ?"
"Oh Yeah, so now are u willing to pay ? So ur not willing to pay right ? I just ask u another time, u're not willing to pay right?"
"YES.... I am not gonna pay ....."
Before taking off, i gave a finally COCK-LOOK-STARE at her number plate. There are tonnes of this kind of MARAFAKA drivers out there. People used to think that, once they put on their indicator, everyone else should give way to them no matter what. Once their indicator is on, everyone else have to watch out for them. They are the KING OF THE ROAD !!!!! At that time, blood was boiling within me, and anger set in, clouding of my rational thinking. At one point, i even wanted to get out from my car, and give a big-damn-farking-smash on her side-mirron. Just wanted to give back her her own poison. I did not. She was lucky that i was already late for my Mather's day and Father's b'day celebration.
Guess it has become our culture that every Friday nite will be our DOTA nite at . And so, after dinner and some resting in front of the tv with Dan, me and Gaylord finally hitch a ride to Stiff Butt's house, and off we go to .
Biz was slowly catching up. We started to have some customer base everynigth, rather than ZERO head counts for the past few weeks. When we reach there, there were only 4 of us. The other one was FF. As SB(StiffButt) and GL(GayLord) wanted to pratice on their waramashit-so-call team work and partnership, i therefore has to partner FF :p
Anyway, the game wasn't that bad. I mean, partnering FF wasn't that bad. I personally don't have that HARD feeling towards him. It's just that some of his ABNORMAL behaviors triggered my unsatisfaction towards him. Stuff like, he seldom drives when we go out together for lunch (Which he has showed us some tremendous improvement lately :) ), and his unwillingness to contribute to and taking up responsibilities. Anyway, cut the crap, he is still a friend of mine. :)
For the first 2 games, me and FF partnered, and i was using the healing guy .
Later on, kokidi joined in. I tried some other healing guy , and found out that he was a useless faggot (or was it me that is a useless faggot ? Hahahaha :D ).
FF , as usual, was in his training mode. He kept on repeating that he was in his training mode and is trying out new characters, and thus, that whole nite, he din use his DEADLY-Nerubian
Kokidi was in a dilemma of which character to use, and i suggested some of the heros to her, and she used & , whereby she prefers the former than the later. :)
Anyway, Teck Yunn joined in after he had a discussion with our marafakin-IDDI-neighbour. The boss left us no choice, and we've finally seperated our internet connection with him. He claimed that his connection is always slow due to our customers "eat" out most of his bandwitdh. Anyway, so be it. We are currently using the RM88 package streamyx for now, and will see what we need once USM intake is in on the 1st of July.
All in all, it was a good DOTA outing. The session lasted until 3:30am :)
This afternoon during lunch time, me, ddcat, gaylord and chin yin went to my apartment. We need ddcat's help to solve the moden-stimx-conspiracy thing. After much trial, we finally decided to call the service centre of stimx, and ended up we re-did the whole farking procedure of what we've did for the past few days when we called them. Seeing that we are going no where, and after wasted almost RM30 bucks on my hp, gaylord decided to call up the service centre to ask for someone to actually come over to have a look at the problem. Guess what ? They DEMAND us to pay for the contractor for RM50 bucks. What the farking world is this ? I have to say i really solute gaylord for actually have the patience and guts to negotiate with them, and finally they decided on an agreement whereby, if the problem source is actually from us, then we bear the RM50, but if the cause is beyond our control, then the contractor is to collect their RM50 from tm-Farking-net.
I am slowly getting out of patient for this whole farking thing. We've wasted almost an hour achiving nothing, with some additional phone calls to their tm-farking-net-so-call-service-centre. They better has some progress and results to show me when the so-call-self-claimed-Muhidi-contractor of tm-farking-net is coming over tomorrow night at 7:30pm. I tell you, my patience are really thinning day-by-day.
FARK FARK FARK !!! Me and GayLord tried out our AZTECT modem for 1 whole week, and we can't seem to get ourselves connected to Streamyx, and so, we decided to pass our modem to ddcat yesterday in hope of him helping us to solve some setting in the modem.
Somehow, he managed to get thru this waramashit StimX without any setting done, and he managed to get SMOKE comming out from our new AZTECT modem. FARKER .... hahahahaha :D I was shocked when i read his blog this morning :p Anyway, we are going to my apartment later to get this StimX thingie work out later after lunch. :) Hope ddcat can help us solve all the confusion.
Last nite, me and Dan kinda came back quite early. We went for Vegetarian Dinner at Tan2 Xiang1 Shi4. It's was quite nice the food there. Furthermore, from March, 2005, they no longer charges for the food. People go there and eat, and pay any contribution willingly at any amount. We paid 10 bucks for 2 plate of economy vegetarian rice :)
After reaching home, feeling a bit wear-off, we decided to watch Hitch. What can i say, a really interesting, touching, and quality movie. :) The story is basically on a guy name Hitch(Will Smith), and he is a Love Doctor. His profession is basically helping his clients set up a date with the people they like, in a professional and well mannered way, with definitely good intention :)
The story circles around the love life of one of his clients and his himself, and with a touch of sentimental feel at the end. Almost made me cry :) A very nice, touching, warmth, and comedian movie and highly recommanded. :)
Sigh ~~~~ Last nite, Dan was having her usual nose-allergy-attack-thingie again, so I suggested that she can go to bed early to take some good rest, while i can help GayLord troubleshoot our stoopid AZTECT modem on getting the connection to Streamyx. We still find a lot of difficulties getting hooked up to internet thru Streamyx. Stoopid StimX.
Anyway, lazy gaylord went to bed, and just when i was having sooo much fun banging and crashing the Sourge's base with my 's , someone actually sneak behind me and gave me a big-huge scary surprise. Gosh ..... I think that has already reduced my points way down to the negetive level, and i think i shouldn't be playing anymore DOTA at home .... Man ..... how can i survive without DOTA ? :(
Holy Cow. Last Saturday nite, we just had our first overnight Lan Party. Charges are only RM10 for the whole nite, from 30th April 10pm - 1st May 10am. Although biz was not as crowded as what i've expected, we still have full house on that nite, with me, ddcat and batu playing DOTA with those GODLIKE players from NetCity.
I have to tell you, those GODLIKE players play like pros and their team work is really terrific. I really enjoyed the game with them, thouse i kena fry kao-kao by them, i learnt quite a lot of things from them. Basically, team work is more important than personnal glory. It's no use of having some 30 some kill alone. There's one game whereby, we were trailing way behind. it was a 5v5 game, with me the only newbie on their side :p All our towers are already gone, and some of our buildings at base has already been burnt down, whereas we haven;t even set foot in enemy's base.
With the help of a LEADER from our team, we finally managed to played as a REAL team. We all gave up all out money and bought some good quality items and keep on pumping on 2 of our most prominent heros, and waited for the enemy team to come to our base, and when they did, we all gangbang'ed his Sven(which is their strongest hero), and one-by-one, we broguth the rest down, then we charge all together to their base before they managed to respawn. Continue did that , and we won is full team-work spirit.
ALl in all, i really enjoyed it that nite, and went back at around 4:30am. One thing i regretted though, i FFK GayLord for helping him to move his things to my house, as today was his first day moving in to my house. HAHAHAHA .... soree ya gay :p
I received this artical today from Zoe Lim, and it somehow touches my heart and i felt warm when reading it. We sometimes take things for granted, and forget about all the softness we were gifted during our teenage years. We get angry easily where most of the time, the issue is actually not that serious. Here's a good one which i would like to share with everyone, and keep it in my mind so that i can refer to it often, enjoy :)
The Power of Holding Hands By Rabbi Harold Kushner
I was sitting on a beach one summer day, watching two children, a boy and a girl, playing in the sand. They were hard at work building an elaborate sandcastle by the water's edge, with gates and towers and moats and internal passages.
Just when they had nearly finished their project, a big wave came along and knocked it down, reducing it to a heap of wet and. I expected the children to burst into tears, devastated by what had happened to all their hard work. But they surprised me. Instead, they ran up the shore away from the water, laughing and holding hands, and sat down to build another castle. I realized that they had taught me an important lesson.
All the things in our lives, all the complicated structures we spent so much time and energy creating, are built on sand. Only our relationships to other people endure. Sooner or later, the wave will come along and knock down what we have worked so hard to build up. When that happens, only the person who has somebody's hand to hold will be able to laugh.
This is really one marafaking strange dream i had....
Lately, i found myself filling with dreams almost every sleep i had, but this is definitely one marafaking freaky strange dream.
I dreamt of everyone is going for a dunno-to-where trip. We all are packing up, and the drive is picking us up one by one. I was the last one in the stop. Mut, Gay, Pim and ddcat was already in the car, SuYin(Gay's gf) kept on pressing the van-like-or-rather-mvp-like car, as she was the drive. I dunno how that dream came to me, geezzzz..... i wasn't ready yet packing up my stuff. I was so god damn tense, and one thing, i haven;t got the chance to see how SuYin looks like ... HAHAHAHAH .....
so.... that's basically my freaking dream last nite :p
Shoot. It has been going on for weeks, and my pulse is still not recovering. Everytime i SHIT, my ass hurts. Compared to the other family members, i really think that my case is very very mild.
I came from a family with this pulse inherited. My grandpa was an all time hardcore sportsman. And as we know, most sportsmen tends toward having pulse. Mainly due to dehydration. It's not that they don't drink water, its the nature that sportsman tends to loose fluid in a faster rate(as their metabolism rate is higher), and thus, their bowels is somewhat.... HARDER.
My grandpa has his operation before, and they're gone now, but the story that he told me how he has gone thru the process was terrifying.
My mom has it when she first gave birth to me, i guess that because i came out from leg first, and that gave her quite a difficult time getting me out. She too, has serious problem with pulse everytime she comes out from the toilet. I remember seeing her sitting on a round float which children used to use them while swimming, to prevent the pulse from touching any surface. Just imagine how agonizing it is.
And now, mine, i think, was due to some severe pressure from my workload. Darn. Everytime i have pressure, that darn 4-splitted-meat-balls-in-my-@$$ will start popping out from the @$$hole. Everytime after i completed my job in the toilet bowl, blood starts to streem out. FARK. It's really a PAIN-In-Da-ASS man ~~~~~
Maybe because lately the weather is hot too la.... anyway, just hope that this marafaka-4-splitted-ass-balls quickly disappear la...
We once were close friend. We exchange views, share thoughs, discuss feelings, and most of all, we were good friend.
Somehow something happened along the way. I wouldn't deny that it's my fault for sharing out her blog, but somehow, after sharing it out with the hendrix, something bad happened. We somehow started having fun reading through the blog, and when things started to get out of control, and we did something very stupid. We left a comment, a rather stupid and crude and RUDE comment in the blog's shoutbox.
We somehow get panic, and trying hard to cover our sins, but somehow, after much discussion, we finally decided to make a confession.
There somehow has been some misunderstanding. Our relationship somehow doesn't get along that well anymore. I understand that a wound will remain it's scar for as long as it may. I just hope that everything can be get back to normal. i really regretted for my actions till this day, and i do believe all the hendrix have the same though as i do. People sometimes do make mistakes, and some stupid ones too, sometimes. We really treasure our friendship, and seriously, we sincerely hope that everything can get back to normal one day.
Just sharing my thoughs ~~~ People come, people go, some stayed, some swayed, but everyone that come across your life do leave some significant meaning on a page or two in the story you make in your life. There's nothing wrong or right. All you need to do is to treasure every moment in your life and cherish it for life :)
Yesterday, went to EQ to fetch Dan back from training. She'll be attending some How-To-Receive-Telephone-Calls-Techniques-Training in EQ for the next 3 days.
Reached home around 6pm, as usual, changed, tucked in my sports shoes and off i went for a jog. After a few steps from my apartment, i kinda enjoying the post-drizzle-nice-breeze , and somehow loosing concentration on my walking (Which i've been practicing for the past 5 years), i felt a twist and a pinch on my right knee, and what came across my mind was ....
"WTF.... NOT AGAIN !!!!"
Yeah.... I had this knee dislocation injury 5 years ago at N-Park when i was playing basketball. Took me totally a month to be able to walk back at then. Throughout the year, the bond of the joint at my right knee is kinda loosen, and if i loose a split second of concentration on my steps, i might even get back the dislocation again. Yeah .... it is THAT loose.
Anyway, this is not the first time already, but still, i was kind of pist off, as i knew this is now gonna recover within a week, and there goes my weekly badminton training on Sunday morning as well as my daily jogging routine. I resolved to going to gym yesterday.
Whenever i have this post-split-second-of-knee-dislocation (meaning the knee get dislocated in a split second, and went back to location), not only that i felt pain for a week on every step i take, i couldn't straigthen my right leg. Straightening my right leg would really hurt, and so, I will have to sleep in a position which always keep my right leg secured in a bending position.
Sometimes I wonder What if one day I have cancer Who are the ones that really matters And who are the ones that will give you the cold shoulder
But there’s something which I’m pretty sure I will always have some members Which always be beside my bed corner Those are the people, the Hendrix fellas
I couldn’t recall how we knew each other But somehow there’s this chemical which drew each of us closer We complete each other With Gaylord become gayer Mut becomes longer Pim becomes fatter Ddcat becomes machoer And me become happier
Gaylord likes peanut butter Mut is an all-time biker Pim among us, is the cutest Ddcat is already a proud father And me of course, is the Leader
No doubt some arguments do occur
my panty a bit tighter pim tring to act as a stupid “looker” mut will go as a serious silencer gay as usual, a dota no-no-goer there’s nothing cures better than ddcat’s great laughter
no matter what happens in the future I’m sure we will always be together All these times spent with all this Hendrix members All these names added in my list of Friendster Will always be part of the completion of my soul booster And till the day I die, I will always remember.
Well, it all started last nite around 20:00, after Me and Dan had our heft dinner at Bayan Bay. Well, I had one Claypot chicken rice and Dan had Pan Mee, and we ordered a plate of sotong panggang. :)
On our way back to house, Dan recalled that she need to photostate something, and so we decided our next destination to be my office after taking our "couple bath" together as usual :p
Everything was as normal as it could be. Came back from office, filled up our income tax form together, and after doing our night prayers (gongyo), we decided to take a walk down the tracking path behind our apartment.
Well, i must say this adventure was somehow intriguing. We've never been there before. The night was nice, the soft beam from the moon light was just nice, cool breeze flowing smoothly by us, adding points to the romatic mood. We kept our stroll in sync as we enjoy the nice feel and romantic experience.
Things started to get steamy, and i dun quite remember what exactly happened. One thing led to another. The chirping of insects added some momentum to our force. The cool breeze of midnight neutralized the extreme heat between us, perfectly balancing the force. Oh Gosh, this was the first time i had this wonderful experience. It all ended with a wonderful sound from the Roar Of The Lion.
I just dun understand, but somehow, everthing seems to be so blurred, but so real. We were enjoying our short nap of post-battle, were i finally felt a sudden chilness when a strong wind appeared from nowhere. I was trying to greb for something to cover-up my feet, but somehow couldn't reach anything to avail.
Well, as the wind getting chiller and chiller, i had difficulty finding confort, and it somehow disturb my mood, and of course my sleep. I found myself waking up on bed.
And if you were as partly stunned as i was when i woke up, and if u were still having a hard time wondering what this Sympton WeTDream is all about, well, u take your time..... just take your time ok ? :)
Last sat nite, my sis went to Upper Penang Road for Lee Hom's kind of latest album promotion. My sis borrowed my nikon4500 from me and after that concert on Sat nite, my sis seems like had an obsession towards Lee Hom. Gosh, i tell you , she said she can't sleep and can't eat and can't concentrate .... hahaha ...... but hell, after she showed me the MTV she bought during that nite, i kinda fall in love with this guy too. It's just that his music talent has deeply captured my heart. there's this song called "A Simple Song" in his latest album which i like most. Although the melody seems simply, the music is catchy and chords are jazzy. Well, in case u guys dunno, i'm currently into R&B, and trying my best to pick up Smooth Jazz. Although the beat is kinda difficult to master, i'm still willing to learn it. And you know what ? Lee Hom graduated from some Music school, majoring in Jazz :)
Just look at how he plays the piano, man, between the currently hottest 3 R&B, Jay, Lee Hom and David, this is my comment:-
David:- best in music arranging (just listen to his music, all crystal clear) LeeHom:- best, and truest musician among them. Jay:- no comment.
I just tried to catch the chords for that sing, and with some luck, i managed to captured the chords for "A Simple Song" ~~~~~
I tell you, i don't understand why i have this kind of negetive feeling towards FF, neither do i understand why i am so freaking pist off with him. Maybe i could be the way he acted.... maybe it could be the was he talks .... maybe it could have been something that he's said to me ..... anyway i just think his face really looks like a farking horse, and i really sincerely would like to dedicate this to my dearest Faggoty Frog .....
Guess what ? We headed off to as usual during lunch. Together in SB's (Stiff Butt) car was me sitting in front, FF Teck Yunn & Gaylord sitting at the back, and ddcat in the "car booth". Actually it's not car booth la, it's just the last row that doesn't actually contain any seat. We took some funny and nice pictures of it. Hahahahaha .......
Anyway, when we reach , then only to find out that ddcat forgot about the keys. Fark man....... and so, we decided to head towards Net City CyberCafe to try our luck. This was the first time i entered there, and Low and Behold, they have 80 machines, and when we reach there, the waiting list is somewhat 20+ people. Gosh !!! I just couldn;t see why their business is sooooo damn good compared to . I just couldn;t understand .... :((
On our way home back to office, haven't have the time to even let the traumatic incident of the overwhelming demand at Net City settle, a wave of unstoppable bragging and some bullshit from FF came non-stop pouring at us. I wasn't in the mood of talking, neither was i in the mood of giving any comments or criticism, that FF guy just kept on continue with his usual ritual, bullshitting at wtf he was at last nite playing his WoW, bragging at wtf special items he got .....
I just dun like to carry on criticising people. I better stop here and get back and concentrate on my FUSION .........
I have to tell you, this marafaking FUSION project is getting on my nerves. Request starts to get in one by one when all the IC Designers can't meet their own schedule. They will just simply dump any request on any marafaking kind, and hope that those stooopid @$$holes in CAD can just write up a multi-hyper-duper-farker-geng program that can save their ass from getting burnt. And if we can't deliver, then hell, it's CAD's problem, as they can't deliver their task.
I tell you, i currently have some 6-7 some iTracks on my plate, plus some unlisted / undocumented ones, which adds up to about 10 request. The current one that I'm currently working on is to slice up all the non-90degree polygons(as in other words, all 45 degree polygons) into small-tiny-pieces of rectangles. Yeah, i personally admit that i love programming, and i love all the challenges of cracking my head by getting all the algorithms out. It's no doubt a very satisfying desire to see some of those cranky-wanky-weirdy Bombastic programs working which actually comes from your own hand.
.....but when things started to get ugly, then dead line started to get around the corner, when people can't seem to get their job done on time, when others started pointing fingers at each other, and when FUSION is nearing its tape out date ............ EVERYTHING GETS PRETTY FARKED UP !!!
Time flies, and i tell you, it really does, in a very fast pace. The last thing i remembered playing with Sui Lynn was just a couple of years back, when we were something around 5 ? Or maybe 7. Arhh ... yes, there was a time closer to present, i believe it was a few years, maybe 4 years back ? When she came back from Canada from her Pharmaceutical Semester break, joining us for a game or two of our usual weekly badminton session at Ramaksrisnan, and that's the last time i saw here.
The next thing we know, i was already sitting around a table with all my family members, attending her wedding with her Doctor hubby. You just can't get the fact out that you are already catching up with age when you noticed that everybody beside you, your childhood playmates, your primary school classmates, your friends from your childhood neighbourhood, are getting married and having families of their own.
And well, You know what ? This is the latest good news that i have received from her. Her lil' Isabelle just arrived two weeks ago. Well, here are the pictures. :) Congrates to my cousin Sui Lynn, and her hubby Nan Chuang, and of couse let's give the lil Isabelle a big welcome :)
Last nite, after dinner at 600cc in BJ, we came to my office, as i wanted to bring back my WCIII cd installer so that i could get back and install it in Dan's laptop to practice. To my surprise, we met PH here. He was rushing for his design-sync stuff. The first thing i asked him was, "Can't i borrow your pen drive, so i could copy back the 1.18 WC patch and DOTA 6.05 map?" .... hahahaha .... :D
Later on , i brough Dan visit some of the cubicles in my office. She hasn't been to my sis's cube, so we headed towards there, and started wandering around. To our surprice, we reached a cibicle which is full of holy crap. There's 3 pairs of shoes in it, and a towel (which is still wet), on the chair. The most touching moment came when we saw 2 stickers on the glass which i always use to peep thru it when doing that on him was ......
"Enfa A+ - Do you know crocodiles can't stick their tongue out?" "Enfa A+ - Do you know fish don;t have eye lids?"
Last evening after coming back from work, i felt a hitch on my head. I believe it was due to those marafaking rashes which made me felt dizzy and headache. I somehow told myself that i hafta sweat it out as tension has been building up ever since i started my day with Fusion this morning. I head of with my jogging shoes and so Dan stayed back and cook some porridge for our dinner.
Afta dinner, we had, we decided to go for some ice cream(which is Dan's favourite food. Yo Gaylord, u 2 can have some ice-cream party next time at my home. Hahahahahah. ) As so, we headed off towards Sunshine Square's Mc.D. While we were walking towards it, we stopped by a bakery shop to buy some stuff for breakfast. As usual, i headed towards the most economical / long lasting recipe, which was the kind of bread as in a loaf , filled with some nuts & raisins. Hmmm .... $1.70, not bad at all, though the size is not very big, should be able to last me throughout the week. Dan picked on 2 cheeze stuff, which i calculated all together added up to $4.
I flash my new plastic-made-$5 note to the cashier gal, and to mah surprise, what-the-marafaking-@$$-hole-fishing, it was $10 !!!!!!! I asked her, "Ten Bucks !?!?!?!?! You sure ?!?!!?!?", and i took a closer look, and i was like .....Ohh-Mah-holy-freaking-cowsy-farking-bitch, that tiny-mincy-loaf-o-bread was actually $7.60 !!!!!! There's was this time where the idea of actually putting back the bread to its original place did strike across my mind, but the something that the cashier said actually waived this idea off my mind, and at some point, really pist my off badly ....."Apa, u ingat loti ni $1.70 kah ??!?!!?!" ........
Come to think about it, i was really stoooopid to have been pist off so easily by some nuisense. I just sometimes have to let my mind settle in before taking any action. I just think that we human most of the time acts while the emotion is still in control, way before our mind sets in. That's the part which i think i still need a great deal of practice to be done. Whenever i lose in a match of badminton and gave tired as an excuse, my grandpa whould always say ..... "Do not let your body control & fool you, Use your mind to control your body instead" ...... and that, i will keep that in mind, and practice it :)
Fark. I started to feel some itchyness when i went to last Friday. I din't give much attention to it though, turned out that it was a serious problem. I din't remember eating anything that would trigger the rashes all around my body. I have yet to have this experience, and well, this was the first time. All by body (almost every inch of my body) was so darn itchy. Rashes was seen everywhere. I keep on scratching until some parts of my body gets bruisers. Gosh, i must tell you that, the itchiness was so intense that, when I scratched my body, the feeling was almost comparable to having multiple orgasm at the same time, ARGHHhhhhhh~~~~~~~~~
Doc gave me some freaking medicine which cost $43, i took it on Sat nite, the rashes seems to reside on Sun Morning. When i was watching The 5 People You Meet in Heaven on Sun Nite, the rashes came back again, and this time, it worsen, with a lil bit of headache effect, which still clinged on to me now, this morning. I just hope i can get thru this day without anymore symptons of it. Man, the itchiness was really scary.
I've added a Latest Movie / Latest Reading part to my right HTML bar. Well, The 5 People You Meet In Heaven was actually introduced to me by my sis. She just bought that book from Popular. Anyway, it just so happened that the Author of this book, Mitch Albom, seems get quite huge attention lately, and it just so happened that his 2 books (the 1st one is Tuesday With Morrie) will be showed in Astro Channel 10, HallMark.
Well, last nite from 9-11:30pm, me, Dan and Ming watched The 5 People You Meet In Heaven. And i have to admit that it's true a very touching movie. This is the kind of movie which can really move my emotion, and touch my heart, makes me cry, evern since the last one, which was The Big Fish. Starred by John Vaught, father of Angelina Jolie, this is a very highly recommanded movie. Strange that it wasn't shown in the cinema.
Every once in a while, i like to have some time of my own. I do have that last time when i was in High school, where i have my own room shut out from every one else, and i do really mean EVERYONE. Sitting there doing some meditation, and thinking of stuff, let my mind wonders wildly and freely, in the search for some inspiration and digesting some note / facts of life which i've just learnt. Anyway, that piece of my life has seem being left behind far far away from me, and i just do feel like having it back again. I sometimes do create some wonders, and of course keep your mind sharp, and relax your body. and Well, that feel did come back today :)
After reading xiaxue's blog, which her fren just died (http://xiaxue.blogspot.com/2005/04/whether-you-have-been-sour-victim-of.html), and had a chit chat with my buddy, which he just told me that his auntie-in-law is dying of cancer soon, i just feel very down in mood. It somehow got me back to the mood i had last time when i was in high school. Dan went to sleep early last nite (around 11pm), and i stayed away , doing some meditation and willd-thoughts-drill. I somehow couldn't get rid of the image of my grandpa from my mind.
Speaking of my grandparents will always bring me down to tears, and well, it was them who actually brought me up to this cruel world. My parents who are teachers actually worked in Kepala Batas when i was still a toddler, occasionally visit me during the weekends, and so, leaving me with my grandparents most of the time. My grandma, who had a serious stroke, was half paralyzed on the rest of her right side, but somehow, miriculously managed to feed me, hug me to sleep, change my diapers, and mow the grass, cook meals (which she is really got at it) and everything else SINGLE handedly.
As a toddler, we know we sometimes do act a lil intolerable, but my grandparents are always doing better at this field, having a better threshold in withstanding my irrational demands. I still remembered clearly how i cried wildly demanding a BMX from my grandma when she was doing her daily chores, washing clothes. With some persisting effort, i finally managed to walked into a bicycle shop, with my grandma holding tight to my grandpa's hands. This is how they walk. My grandma always clinged on tightly to my grandpa for supporting her weight on her right side. I finally got my first Red BMX, but somehow din quite feel happy about it, and i really felt guilty, for dunno what reason.
For the next following weeks, grandpa has been spending most of his time coaching me on riding on a 2-wheeled vehicle. I started of with 4 wheels, then later on, one wheel (which i forgot was the right , or the left one) was removed, and finally leaving only 2. My grandpa has been always a very very patient guy. Till this day, i have yet to see him throw a tantrum at anyone. The worst story i've heard b4 was from my 3rd auntie, where she said she was badly whipped by my grandpa using a belt, becuase she opened the door while the car was still moving, resulted in my 2nd auntie got flew out from the car.
After a few years, my grandma left us. I started to cling on more tightly than ever to my grandpa, in the fear of loosing another one i loved. I believe that was when i was 12 years old. I was introduced to football at this age, during a school PE session, and since my grandpa represented Malaysia football team in his teenage years as an inner right, no doubt he was again my football coach. I really appreciated what he did for me. We practiced football every Sunday morning, from 8-11am. His words seems so real to me until this day, and i could still hear those words so clearly tingling beside my ears right now ..."Liang, most important thing in foot ball is to stop the ball properly" ... , and u have to learn your long shots so that u can pass accurately to your team mates. and with that, we only concerntrate on our stop ball and long pass, with my grandpa standing in the middle on the football field, shooting high-long-pass to me, and i stop the ball, then kicking the ball highly back to him for 3 hours :)
I don't quite like to stay very long on something. i always feel curious towards new things, and like to seek for new adventure. It wouldn;t be a surprice that i dropped my football in Form 2, and started picking up tennis. It was a new thing to me, and so i introduced it to my grandpa, and my father(which till this day, is still playing this game with his friends twice/week.)
Although being in the tennis school team for 1 year , i dun find the game interesting as it wasn't in a pace faster enough for me. I opted for badminton so. yes, don;t think twice. My grandpa was my coach. He was the veteran champion for Malaysia Open for 11 straight year. His 3 championship cup, the size of 3 feet tall, is still sitting on top of his cupboard, accompanied with lots of small miniature cups, which varies from football and badminton. He was the World Veteran Badminton Champion in 196*, which was held in Taiwan. Anyway, badminton was the game i hangged on the longest. Seeing my determination on picking up this game, without any hesitation, my grandpa drives me all the way from one end to the other for each game. I do join him for some games with his friends every Monday / Wednesday at Ramakrisnan. He was 77 at that time, and still remain unbeatable.
Time really flies. last year, my grandpa was 88. My 2nd auntie decided to make an implant for him for his denture. He lost all his teeth at an early age due to excessive smooking of 2 packs of Dunhill / day. I still dun know what's the cause of it, was it the weather there, or was it the medicine they used when implanting his denture, my grandpa suddenly suffered serious last stage pnuemonia. According to the doctor, Phlegm filled up his lungs, and there's no was air could get thru it as the prolonged effect of smoking already killed most of the alveoli cells. Images of my grandpa , throughout all stages of life came streaming thru my mind. I wasn't able to concentrate on anything i did. At some point, i actually hated my auntie/uncle whom indirectly forced my grandpa to had that implant, which all these while wasn't fond of doing it. The pain of not be able to see him increases day by day, and the fire within my of my worry for him burns greater each day when my 3rd aunt told me that he was actually whizzing for air in difficulty. They finally decided to pay for my air ticket and send me over to HK, just in case for the worst.
I have never gave up hope on my grandpa. To me, he was the best man in this world. No body could replace him in my heart. i actually worship him, and strive to be like him one day. He was more than an idol to me, more than anyone else to me. I still can remember how clearly he told me the whole experience of his while in the hospital. He said he met a lot of friends, he even met Monkey God (which was his childhood legendary character), and some of his friends which is already dead, in his dream. He told me that they invited him to go with them, Monkey God was on top of a coconut tree, inviting my grandpa to stay with them. I dunno how tue was it, but my grandpa said that he actually heard the voice of my aunties and my mom, and told them that he wasn't able to join them , as he has to come back to us. He shoooosh'ed them away. That was what he told me. hahahahah :D
Getting his life back was a miracle, according to most of the doctors in that hospital. We even had all the necessary procedures and equipments readily prepared. Until this day, after almost one year from that incident, my grandpa still go for casual dancing almost every night with his girlfriend :) I love him more than anything else now, and no matter what happens in the future, i know that there's always a part of my heart which he will resides in for the rest of my life. I lvoe you very much, grampa ~~~ :)
While i was hovering accros the road on my nice ship, which i named her "The Kancil", something from the radio actually caught my attention. It was a talk show actually, and to my surprise, some government is actually calling upon all the drug addicts, and are giving up FREE drugs for them !!!!
After listening to the program for a moment, and come to think about it more in depth, i don;t think it is a bad idea at all. This is how it works:-
1. Government call upon all drug addicts. 2. All drug addicts will be placed in an isolated Island. 3. Free drugs will be provided to all addicts for a period.
If you give a deeper though on it, it's actually a sincere step from the government to help everyone. These ideas, some came from me myself, some was actually from some participants from the program:-
1. Criminal rates will be lowered as no one will be breaking the laws for money to buy drugs 2. Drug trafficker will be doomed, as there's no more demand for them(or maybe lesser, making their life more misserable) 3. Government don't have to waste much time go looking for addicts, as they will turn up by themselves. This is a good step in helping them rehabilitate faster.
Well, my aparment was all the way up at the highest level, 10th floor, and me and Dan kinda love our apartment-at-first-sight. It was actually situated at a very nice place. The air is fresh, not near from the highway, away from all the hazardous traffic noise and pollution, and the view is cool. :) our living room's full height window screen leads us directly towards the Penang Bridge , which gives us a nice sea view and cool night scenary, while our front door upon opening, gave us a nice fresh breezy welcoming wind flowing straight from the opposite mountain. It really fits all our requirement for a nice, lovely cool and healthy home ~~~ :)
There's something that Dan doesn;t like about it, which actually is not such a big problem to me. Whenever there's a huge windy day, or a rainy day, all the bugz from the opposite mountain will come visit us. The situation is not like what u think as "Aiyah, that is normal la..." thingie. The amount of bugz lying on the corridor is really unbelievable. I for one, doesn;t really bother about it, in fact, as a keen photographer, i see it as a nice opportunity for me to take some lovely macro/close-up shots on those small cute lil creatures, and sometimes, when i see those bugs turn-turtled, i will gently help them on getting back on their toes :)
Dan, on the other hand will be not so happy when ever i do that :D Couldn;t blame a gal for that as most gals are not so fond with insects. Well, anyway, here's some of those pix which i secretly invited "it" to my office. I will let him go freely where he may roam when i am going back later....don;t u think it is cute and lovely ? :)
Today, Gaylord decided to stay with. Yay :) And we decided to have his room fixed with an air-con (RM500), which we pay 50-50. So everything is confirmed now, and me, gay, pim and ddcat head towards CLICKERS to register STREAMYX account using my name and guess what, we were sitting in steamy-hotty-gayish bronze-1.3-wira. I must tell you, everybody in that car is sweating like hell. ACording to ddcat, all bronze-1.3-wira like dat one, as his wife's bronze-1.3-wira is also like dat. So we all have to accept the fact that it's not gays fault , it's his damn bronze-1.3-wira fault. Anyway, to cut the story short, we can make a full jar of orange juice if we were to have all our underwears juice squeezed out.
That's not all, after coming in to the office, the air-con stopped for no farking-what-so-ever-dunno-waramashit-happened reason. It lasted for almost an hour. I must tell you that, the juice that came out between my arm and my torso, near to my upper part of my armpit is actually accumulating in pounds. Underwear is getting juicier and juicier. I wonder who producers the most orange juice in Altera today ...... ............... .............. ........... still wondering ..............
Sad to say that, but i guess it's some shitty Hedge Are's brainchild. We now no longer allowed to have aquarium in our cubicle, and it's kind of pathetic to see how my fishes gone one by one :( I believe i will really miss those small fries which just arrived in this nifty world less than a month. Pie Hole (From now on, we just call him PH) just scoope off some of my guppies last nite, so he can increase the head count in his home aqua. I just do hope that he will be able to give those poor lil guppies a better hospitality. Anyway, my boss has gave final order on removing this aqua ASAP, and so, i believe it will be gone before next week. Here's the final pix that I took with my D70. So long, my babies. Wish you all best of luck in the future :((
when u're toking which is the best blog, it definitely has to be tBlog. when u're toking who's that fat Kok, it definitely has to be Faggoty Frog.
Everyone strive for working in Altera, y? bcaz it pays 1/2 the interest of the loan for your car. And who's da best group in Altera, You definitely have to give the credit to Hedge Are.
Just close you eyes and think of them, there's nothing else that couldn't be revampt. who else could give you more tension, besides those people sitting in the Hedge Are Mension?
They tok a lot, they act a lot, they bring things up, to make you hot, They work as little, they bring up riddles, even if u pass, u won;t get any Safety Medal.
they create havoc, to get attention, to make people think they work every single fraction, but they couldn't get any acknoledgement, and so to get some complement, they send people some weekly inspiration.
if you feel curious, why they sometimes act furious, towards some marafaka individual fellas, that's because they are so kind, to help us save time, in correcting our emails' gramatical error in every single line.
So please stay cool, and dun be fooled, by those people that's led by Zool, Caz one single step, and u'll regret, for the rest of your life in FTZ.
Lemme tell you guys a story. Ever wonder why Hedge Are in some companies (actually all Hedge Are in every compoany) is so kam lan and kuai lan, and some times very lu siao towards some individual ? Well, one of my fren, who actually worked as an MIS engineer during his Industrial Traning in a well known company told me that, the hedge are in that company actually had the IS department to come up with a script to scan thru all the in-coming/out-going emails with some specific keywords, (e.g.:- HR, Human Resource, some HR personal names, and any leywards that's somewhat related to them) and they actually read thru all the filtered out emails. Now u know why those hedge are people sometimes really go against some individual in that company yeah ;)
Anyway, as a practice to secure my butt from getting screwed by anyone, i've decided to practice some simple steps, and i do really sincerely hope all the marafakas that read this post follow my practice strictly as well, as this will only work if everyone are in-sync. If not, the email will still reach Hedge Are department when one silly-dumbass-marafaka accidentally use some "sensitive" keywords while replying, and everyone in the mailing list will be dumbfucked.
HR - Hedge Are Altera - Ulteror Lay Hoon - Lei Hun Medaline - Mad Zul - zool Fuck - Fark Shit - Shoot Suck - Sak Dick - Dik Cock - Kok
Do feel free to add any in the comments if you have any better ideas on improving the list :)
I dun understand why our company doesn;t allow people to rear fish in our cubicle. It really sucks up when i've spent a lot of my time maintaining and keeping my aquarium nice and cool, only to get a farking commentation in front of all ALTR employees saying that aquarium actually is "NICE TO SEE", is is advicable to only be kept at home, showing the picture taken of my aquarium with my cubicle as background.
Fark, no mood to do anything today. No mood to blog, That's it. ...
I am currently trying to weigh between these 2 heroes in DOTA, seems like i prefer KOL more than Fusion.
Went to again just now during lunch time. Used KOL. I Rocks ~~~~~~ I just like his , which deals 125 damage / second, and will last for 5 seconds on Level 4. Whenever i am out of Mana, i just cast on myself. Not only it replenish my mana by 240 each time, it increases my damage by 28% at level 4 for 10 seconds :) Cool huh ?
Wait on, there's still the Ultimate , and it will be definitely the . It has the ability to liberates deceased units as allies, and u won;t be surprise to see tens of your casters surrounding you. Hahahaha .... Best part of this is, it can be teleported to ANYWHERE in the map, at will. DrollzzZZZzzzzZZZzz !!!!!!! and one more, with the 6.04b version, by getting the A. Sceptor, 2 Fatuus will be produced instead of 1. BWUarrhahahahhahaAHAHAhhahahaHAHha ~~~~~~~
KOL RuLeZzZzZzZZZZzzZZzzzz ~~~~
Ok, here's the brief description of the item list i got on the game just now :)
Just Curious for u people out there. If u have a different sex drive with your partner, say, your partner's sex drive is extremely high (maybe need it everyday), will this affect your love life and relationship ?
And vice versa, if your partner's sex drive is extremely low (maybe only give you once a year), will this affect your love life and relationship ?
Please give sincere and serious comments. I just wanna know what the majority thinks. Thanks :)
Hahahah ... I tell you ..... Yesterday lunch time, we went to play DOTA again at . We ordered McD delivery to BS. I must tell you that, there were damn farking funny lots of complaints on .... Hahahahaha.
First complain was from ddcat. :p He complains that FF's super-duper-farker Integra can only accomodate 2 passenger :p , and he complaned about his driving skills and his farking @$$hole mouth on their way back to ALTR. Read it :)
Next is Gaylord. He was FF's partner in the DOTA game, and so sitting beside him. And throughout the whole game, he has a damn farking sarcastic commentator. Hahahha :D (really can't stop laughing ... :D) That's not the end of the story yet, you should have read the last part where he left all the shit and stuff after eating his McD on the table with a mess. The funny part is Gaylord hafta clear it for him, and the ironic part is, FF is one of the co-owner of . I really feel disappointed having this kind of biz partner, and i swear to all u marafakas out there, this will be the 1st and last time he'll be my biz partner. Read the story... :)
Last but not least, mutumbo. I can't saying anything else, and neither could he, as most of the marafaking @$$hole stuff has been flamed and boombastictised by the rest of the hendrix (except that lazy-farking-faggot-pimp). Anyway, credit still have to be given to Mut for dedicating his time on coming out with a award wining drawing of FF. See it :)
I am happy because all my frens in Hendrix have the same ULTIMATE goal. We have the same target, and our thinking is in-sync. Hahahahahaha. I believe this FF has some issue. Anyway, I myself have some blogs on FF too, if you wanna read on.... heheheh :D
i dunno whether ddcat noticed it or not, but i have this feeling of working beside a farting machine. All this time, i have this neighbour which cubicle is just next to mine. Every now and then , he just farts like no body else bizness. It's not that i am saying i never farts, it's just that, the volumn of his farting (and occasionally, burpping) is just as though it has gone thru a big fat amp. I tell you, people do fart and burp, it's just that, we usually try to lower down the tone by controlling it. Like when i fart, i try to slowly keep the full tank of gas in my lower part of my body, then with a slow rate, i gradually release bit by bit of it, and thus, making the volumn close to unnoticable. Besides that, by doing this, i found out that the gas that gets out is at a higher temperature, and thus, making me feel more at ease and relax.
Anyway, WTF, really dun understand how he thinks. I personally find it damn farking disgusting ...
hahaha ... First, b4 i start of with this blog, i just wanna make it clear to everyone that, i put up this topic becasue i personally think that it is really a damn funny joke, and as a fact, i really think that i am damn farking creative when it comes to this kind of dirty jokes. I have no whatsoever offensive intention to pist anyone off. So, please, take this as just a joke, but not an offensive on ok ? :p
well, it all start off when one of my good Buddies from Hendrix group ask us for some peanut butter .... and well, as a guy which falls in the red quadrant , which is proven to be those that are quite creative, i just replied him with the below email which reads:-
...... Well, I have 2 peas on top, and 2 nuts below, and if u work hard enough on both of them, you will be able to get you last wish granted ........
It was just like any ordinary morning , where I drove my car in from the back door of ALTR entrence. The fact that it's a bit late today leave me no more parking lots near my office, and so i have to resolve to parking my car at the back. On my way to entering the building, I try to exercise my left arm. Just in case for those that doesn't know, i actually dislocated my left arm years back when i was doing a sitting-bench-press. It's still giving me some acute pain every now and then when i am being put under extreme stress. The pain streams up from my lower left back, all the way up to my left arm, up to the left side of my neck. It's that bad that under some cases, i could barely lift up my left arm.
Anyway, while i was trying to loosen my left arm, moving it backwards, forwards, sideways, etc, i noticed some faggoty looking fella from a Silver Hyundai Accent waiving at me, at the same time, giving me a damn farking cbb smile. It really freaks me out. I couldn't seem to recognize wtf that fella is until the car swoOoOoOop past me later that i noticed the sticker on the side of his car ...... BahRain. All i can think of right now is..........
......prey hard that he doesn't fantasize squeezing my left breast while Masturbating !!!!! ...........
Last Friday nite, after having a heafty dinner with Dan, we decided to take a walk along the Pasar Minggu near Sunway Tunas. Found out that there were a lot of nice, fried frenzy food around there, ended up, we ate a lot more supper over there, including Lekoh, (3 packets), and bought back 3 durians back home, which only cost 10 bucks.
Saturday morning was a lazy one, as both of us ate too much. I missed my normal time of banking when i woke up as it was already 11am. Anyway, to cut the story short, i actually missed my banking for Sat and Sun too, as we went for Cheng Beng on Sunday morning, and then to Badminton later.
This morning, on a Monday lazy morning, i felt a pinch on my tummy. As you know, after each Cheng Beng, there will be a huge feast. I was reading Mut's lavatory blog and actually replying to it where i felt something coming out from my @$$. without much hesitation, i quickly rush myself in to the toilet, and with some determination, i managed to not let the fluid flow out from my butt hole before placing nicely 3 2piece toilet paper on each side of the bowl. Damn it, once sitting on the bowl, there's no need for any control as the bowels flow fluently past the tunnel from my anal. The feeling of letting past the waste from your tummy is in high satisfaction. I let out a soft moan in relaxation, and started to pull in some breath which i long hold. The fragrance that filled my toilet cell was actuallty better than the relaxation perfumn sold in any scent store. With the help of the synchronized beat of farting sound, i managed to pull off more waste than usual. It was really a true experience. The nice scent was actually filling up the entire toilet cube of mine, as if I was actually in Heaven, surrounded by clouds and breeze. What an experience which i could hardly express thru words.
Although it was just a few minute away from the thrilling experience, i can tell that i have already missed that wonderful time a lot. I can't wait any longer to put myself into it, and longed for it in the next banking session. I really can't wait to share this with all my hendrix fellas which i loved so much, which i dearly wanna share everything i enjoy with them without any secrecy. I really hope we can together enjoy this special moment together, my all beloved Hendrix member ~~~~ :)
well, today Me and Dan took leave, and she has to go for an x-ray as requested by Dell. so, we woke up around 9.30am, and went straight to GAMA to visit Inventec's company clinic panel, as she has to take an MC (she din take leave today....hahahah :D)
After that, we went straight to the Penang x-ray specialist centre opposite Federal Theater. It was fast. just took around 30 minutes and we're done.
After that, we went to Dato Keramat post office to pay off our housing quit rent. RM103.51, then we went back home.
I was really exhausted these few day. Really dunno what's wrong. Maybe it wasa ll because of that farking stoopid Fusion, or was it because of my stressness that pilled up on my left shoulder/back/neck ? I dunno. Anyway, i went straigh to the bed after getting back home.
Woke up at around 2.30pm, dropped Dan at Dell, then i went straight to Altera as i really miss those farking hendrixes. Life without friends are really Damn Farking Boring. At least, with friends, i can say some stupid stuff :)
What a farking boring day, no one wants to play DOTA with me. Guess it's not a good idea to be at the top of the hill too, as no body wants to play with you anymore when they keep on loosing (hahahah a... just jk ok ? ;P)
Anyway, that's my bad. Pretty down in mood. No mood to do anything. Nothing motivating that can hype my mood. Sien ~~~~~~~~~~~
Today, we went to BS again, for DOTA. Hahahah . :D
I think everyone has been badly affected by the addiction. Well, without any more hesitation, let's start our whole process of the game.
Today, 5 of us was there, too bad mutumbo wasn;t able to attend our Olympic, and so, he instructed one of his gay partner, the
FF (faggot frog) to take over his crown. The game starts with meand ddcaton the sentenial and pimp, gay and FF takes the scourge base. We played the -ap mode. We started of with me taking the and ddcat on .On the other hand, the GAYS are pimp as the , FF as the , and as usual, GayLord as the .
The game started with me getting a , and taking the upper lane, I quickly get another , just to make sure that my health is constantly refilled without having to make any trip back to the fountain.
I was so surprise, and rather happy to see that was in the same lane. Seriously, I don’t feel comfortable fighting with Gay or Pimp, as we know, they are Noobs, and I feel bad killing noobs :p (jk ok ? J ), and furthermore, I’ve been waiting for this fxxing chance to kill ff a long time. The thing that I dun like about him is he farking damn lansi once he get to pawn u. He shouts like nobody else’s business in moaning mode as if he has just farked a bitch. Anyway, cut those bitching, let’s get back to DOTA : )
beginning was kind of hard for me, with FF’spouncing a few venoms at me. I only got my with me, and thus, I was at quite a low HP during a few times, which I need to cast impale on him in order to get the stun on him so that I could run away. He away owning me in level, with him at 4, and me at 3.
But then, he slowly feel the pain when he found out that his HP regeneration wasn’t that good compared to my with +4 regeneration. At this point, he had got some Impale from me and was in the RED bar on his HP. He finally decided to go back to his fountain, which makes me have the choice of either to stay on to get some more exp, or go back to fountain for health and items.
I finally decided NOT to go back, as I really wanted badly to reach level 6 so that I can get my ultimate, and I DID J and so I went back to get a , in the preparation of creating a .
Now this is where the fun starts. When I meet FF again, he is still at level 4, where I’m already at level 6. He still thinks that he has that farking stopid sperm-like-killing-vemon with owns me. I just walk inside, Impale him (which at this time, is at level 3, causing around 180 damage, and a 1.5sec stun), hit him a few times before he wakes up, and show him the ultimate . “Lion has pawned on Venomencer !!!” was the next thing I saw on screen.
From then on, it’s all my game, i start pushing in at him, whenever he comes, I just repeat the sacred ritual “(stun), hit, ”. Sometimes where his health is full, u just can’t kill him with this, and so, I researched the . So now, if he doesn’t die, I Voodoo him, turn him into a goat/cat/rat/faggot frog, then hit him a few times, and that’s it : )
Whenever I'm low in Mana, i just use my to get some Mana replenished from those scourge's long rangers. : ) What a good supply : )
After a while, I find it difficult to pawn FF anymore, and so I went bak to get some items. This time, I got and the . Haha. Now with the Dagon, He’s Doom. It’s just “– hit – – ”. Just imagine, Impale does a damge of 270 now, with a stunning ability of 2 sec, Dagon does 400 Damage, and Finger does 600 damage, which accumulated to a total of 1270 + some hits. There’s no way he could get away from this : )
Although it was fun killing FF around some 15 times, but it’s hard to get thru those towers, as Lion is not meant for breaking towers, and of course those creepy lil critters. I went back to get a , but turned out that, ddcat wasn’t able to hold of the tides from Pimp and Gay. Man, I must tell you that Gay is now an expert in Razor : )
So, I passed the to ddcat, and pawned a few and before I headed back for the push.
At the end, the game lasted for too long, and we have no choice but to call for a draw. It was a good game anyway, and although they have broken thru our defences, there’s no way that we’re gonna give up on this. Next time, It will be Lion/DDCat vs Pimp/Mut/Gay : )
One thing that i want to add, (actually i din , it's GayLord that asked me to Glamourize this achievement, or else he won;t leave a comment here, so i have no choice :p)
Gaylord actually achieved an unbelievable Level @0 on his , with a 2 kill on ddcat's . But that's not the important thing. The most important thing is that we actually enjoyed the game, with my reaching Level 25 for the first time, with only 2 deaths and a hero kill of 23, mostly contributed by FF's . Hahahahahahaaahhahah :D

It has been a couple of days since i felt a pinch of sharp razor pain on my back muscle up till my neck, all the way towards my back of left ear. All these while, i always tot it was just a mere office-type-off-computer sickness, until yesterday, when my gf told me that some high post personal in her company actually fainted in the toilet, and was reported that his main vain in his head burst, and that there is only 10% chance of survival. even if he could make it, there's nothing much he can do, as he will be paralysed. Sad to say and hear that, but that's the way how life goes. :(
I really am afraid that i might ended up like that one day. Feeling the pressure starting building up around my chest, and head everyday makes me feel scared. Sometimes i wonder, is it the pressure from work ? I really couldn;t tell. I sometimes feel like my brain is twisting around like a tootoo train, screwing every tiny little vain in my brain. I used to think that people that always complain of having great pressure was actually their own problem. They were actually a bad pressure handler. i was wrong. Until now, only that i knew, no matter how hard to try to tell myself, that things are not as bad as they seem to be, so relax ~~~~ relax ~~~ Take a deep breath ~~~~, it still doesn;t help. The stiffness on my left arm is building up. I can see that my left fingers are all tensed up. i really tried to calm myself down and relax, but it is easier said than done.
Oh Gosh .... i really dun know what happened to me, but this is definitely not a good sign. just curious that when will i die ? How will i die? and when i die, what does it look like ? Where will i go after i die ? will i still remember anything after i die ? .....sigh ...... :(
there has been times, where we were closer than friends ...... there has been times, where we were in a same kind of blend ...... i tot we were never gonna end up like this ...... it really hurts when u told me those words ......
Last nite when u were in the gym ...... no one else was there, only u, me and him ...... it doesn't matter who knows how i feel ...... as long as u understand where our friendship stands ......
I really don't know where it went wrong ....... but somehow there's something in between our bond ...... If only you could tell me what will that be ...... i will do anything to bring back everything ......
If it was something which i said ...... i am sorry, and i really mean it ...... Please forgive me, my dearest friend ..... Let's patch things up, together we mend ......
i dunno was it the iron pills that i started taking a few weeks ago started picking up, or was it a hyp on my testosterone (2nd stage growth), i find myself more energetic and active.
As a measurement to release pressure and tension from all direction during work, i practice the art of push-ups in my own jail-cell-like-cubicle, at 11am and 3pm sharp everyday. It helps rejuvenate my mind, and refresh my fatigue body.
Anyway, my normal routine was a 50+20+10 set, meaning, my initial push was a 50, and i hang on there to take a breath for about 20 sec, then continue on another 20, and then a rest, and the last 10 reps. Since yesterday, i've found out that i improved my sets by going thru a 70+20 reps. what an improvement :)
-8am Soul has been slowly sipping out from my body, as this has been the 3rd day in a row i slept no earlier than 3am. Another early day for me today, as this is our Cheng Beng for my Grandma (my mother's site). For those that doesn;t know what Cheng Beng is, well, it's an annual event tradition for us Chinese to pay visits and burn joss sticks/candles/hell bank notes for those deceased in our family, as a token of respect and appreciation.
10am-12pm Weekly Schedule, as usual, went for badminton in Yesterday club. Although it's tough, i still can get thru the session with winning 1 buck. hahaha :D After lunch, continued "24" series for chapter 9-12. Finally, i have sometime to settle myself down, and started to feel the pain and ache around my body, and that's when i think i should have myself in the bed in order to prepare myself for another tough week ahead. What a looooooooong weekend ~~~~~ , don;t u think so ? ;)
