(-.-")

today i used CIMB internet banking to top up my mobile phone again. And again, error happened. The problem was solved. But i managed to confirm one thing. When i called the service center, the receptionist ask for my mother maiden name again. I answered LT immediately and the answer is CORRECT!!! (-.-") .....

Johor flood

Johor is experiencing the most serious flood over last 100 years. Around few thousands people were evacuated. I called my dad last night to check out whether they are fine. I am happy to know that all of them are fine and my home is not affected at all. Anyway, heard from my dad that my 2nd brother had argument with his wife and she throwed my nephew on the roads and caused minor injury to him. Speechless. The reason was just my brother refused to give her money to go KL for vacation. Anyway, fortunately everyone is fine now.

I called LT as well as i didnt see her online for quite some time. I worried that she was affected by the flood. Fortunately she is fine as well. Her house there is not affected. I am happy to know that she was promoted. Good for her. Her voice is still so nice to hear, but sound tired. I dont know how to describe my feel when talking phone with her. Its too complicated i think. I am missing her now :) wish her all the best

RM90 meal

Its christmas and new year festive season now. Everyone is in holidays mood and waiting for the countdown moment. I received 3 gift exchange event this week. The 1st one was last night, with Huey Wen and her friends; 2nd one today, with my colleagues within same department; 3rd one tomorrow, with Love forum friends.

Well, last night gift exchange was a bit funny. Me and Huey Wen left lab and reached her friend, Kok Lim's home around 6.30pm. After short while Chris came. We departed after Kok Lim was ready. All 4 of us sat in Kok Lim's car. Along the journey Kok Lim and Chris were arguing and teasing each other, made the journey full of laugh and noise, LOL.

In the car they still arguing where to have our dinner and exchange gift. After 10 minutes of arguement we decided to go Mr.Ho Dining (in fact i never heard the restaurant name) beside Northam Hotel. When we reached there i saw its a small building with europe style of design. Kok Lim parked his car outside and we walked across the car park towards the restaurant. Along the walk i noticed that there is no 'Mr.Ho Dining' signboard. I am puzzled and asked Kok Lim regarding this, but he seem puzzled as well. There are 2 signboard there 'Hardwrick' and 'Apple Computing center'. I thought Mr.Ho Dining is a alternative name people used to refer to it.

Before we reached the entrance, 2 waiters already came out and open dorr for us. As we go into the building, we saw the environment is very nice - with dim lights, candles, christmas trees and festive decoration. Ya, we knew that something wrong.

After sat down Kok Lim asked the supervisor why the decoration changed, and then we only knew that Mr.Ho Dining was moved back to KL and that is a new restaurant call 'Hardwrick' (anyway, i hope i spell the name correctly). Well, we were the first customers last night, the whole restaurant was empty. The funniest part was everyone's expression changed after looked at the menu ==" except for soup, the cheapest stuff is RM25! Set dinner starts with RM78+. Most main course starts from RM50+. The cheapest drink is RM10. Sweat......

Kok Lim started gossip with Chris as he knows that Chris and Huey Wen are thrifty ladies that never ate expensive food like this. He proposed to them we can leave if they felt the meal is too expensive. Anyway, the ladies said that it was shame if left the place after looked at the menu. And since they never try high class restaurant before, we decided to stay.

The service is not bad, the waiters are all trained with knowledge of western meal procedures and serving. The order of course, the placement of spoon, knife, and others are strictly followed. Since i knew the meal would be expensive, i decided to take the most expensive course - grilled beef steak with half done.

We finished everything around one hour time, due to the way they serve - following classic western food order. Along the time some customers came. All the customers seem are rich people with nice gown, expensive blouse, shirt, skirt.... we were the only table with t-shirts, jeans, some more we came straight after work, without bath and make up..... really funny... hehehe

We took around RM250, including 15% tax. My part was the most expensive, RM90. Yeah, really sweat. I think this is the most expensive meal i ever take for myself alone. But the most expensive meal i ever paid was last year christmas's eve lunch, which i had together with LT. I forgot how much was that but i think is more than RM120 for both of us. It was really one of the sweetest moment i ever had :D

Merry christmas!

KL-PG Cari Love Forum Gathering (9th December 2006)

This was a very good experience for me to go KL with them, friends known from previous love gathering in Penang. We knew each other in the gathering, from strangers until now become good friends, is out of my expectation previously.

Friday night, i got Jouney from Tesco around 11pm. Our bus would wait us around 12.45am at Seberang Jaya. Ya, it was too early for us as we only need 10 minutes to reach there if no jam on bridge. So? i decided to drive in super slow way, 40km/h, LOL. As i was the slowest car on bridge, everyone behind us overtaken my car, until there was almost no car behind me... hehehe...

However, it was also only taken us 20 minutes to reach Pacific Mall. I called Kingfisher immediately to chase them come earlier. After 10 minutes, Kingfisher, Zonlee, and Karen reached. They sneaked into my car then we looked for petrol station for toilet. Surprisingly we we reached the petrol station Kenny was behind us. Coffee Bean, Sagittarian, and LHKPop were in his car. After that we parked our car nearby the place bus would wait us later.

We reached KL Pudu around 5.30am morning. My legs were frozen by the bus air-con. After that we went for some hot drinks while tried to contact Panda who was reached one day earlier than us. Karen left us with her 'relative'? well, i not sure who was that guy. We confirmed Panda the hotel name then took taxi for it. Unfortunately, everyone was shocked when reaching the destination. The so called 'hotel' is actually a renovated double storey shop with very narrow staircase. Everyone was quite dissatisfied with the place. Furthermore it is very not convenient to me. After discussion we decided to find another hotel. Well, we were looked like roovers that time, LOL, carrying bags sitting at road side.

Luckily we met a taxi driver who introduced us an inn. The inn is quite comfortable, however, without a convenient transportation facilities. We had to get taxi everytime we needed to go out. Anyway, it was happy to have a place to rest that time.

I called Yongsoon, my old good friend from secondary school, as we never meet each other for 2 years already. He visited me around 11am. He seem doing great in KL, with new job in Johnson&Johnson, new bought Honda City, and going to be transferred back to JB next month. I am wondering when i only will have such a comfortable life like him. Anyway, he fetched me, Zonlee, Coffee Bean, and Sagi to TimeSquare while Kenny, Kingfisher, Jouney and LHKPop took taxi to go there. At there Coffee Bean brought Sagi to visit around while me and Zonlee went to find the rest of people.

After had our lunch at Kenny Roger (except Sagi and Coffee Bean eaten else place), we went to games corner for games. Around 3pm Panda reached TimeSquare and met us. After that guys were suggested to back Inn for rest before going for the gathering at night. Panda and Kingfisher suggested to go New Way, but too bad canceled as most people wanted to rest.

At 5.30pm me, LHKPop, Zonlee, and Sagi went out again to go Sg.Wang. Kenny was out with his friend, while Coffee Bean was still in rest mode ==. Kingfisher was just reached Inn that time as he went to meet his net friend. We waited for 30 minutes only managed to get a taxi. However, the driver refused to fetched 5 of us altogether. Very sad that Sagi sacrificed herself to stay and would only go the gathering with Coffee Bean and Kingfisher afterward.

We walked from Sg.Wang to Royal then back to TimeSquare. There were crowded with people there and I took a very long walk then. Wow, very tiring man. But I was quite enjoying that, LOL. When we reached TimeSquare StarBucks, we met with Kenny. Kingfisher, Panda, Coffee Bean, and Sagi were ate that time. We planned to go for dinner first, but we surprisingly found that KL members were in the StarBucks already. So? to not let them wait too long we decided to go up first and only buy take away later.

There were quite number of members reached much earlier than us. But as we were not really know each other, KL and PG members were sat separately and shy to communicate. Kenny as our Big brother started the talk first. The first KL member approached us was Ericlooi. Then we met Ms.Brandy, the organizer; Uhuhboy, the deputy of organizer. Slowly the atmosphere was became better with the reaching of Panda. PG and KL members started to talk and communicate. Everything went fine.





Around 11pm the gathering was ending. Inititally Brandy wanted to bring us go for clubbing. However as most people were not interested and it was Saturday night, the pub should be full of people and not convenient to me, so we changed our plan for supper. Karen met us again outside StarBucks eventually. Most KL members were left, except Brandy, Uhuboy and Bluesky.





We reached Inn again at 1.30am. LHKPop was slept off. the rest of us gathered in Kenny's room for chit chat, cards game and beers. We fool around until 5am and then only back for rest.

We checked out Inn next day around 12noon. Then had our lunch at Pudu, and then got on bus to back to Penang.

....... very long post ... spent my one hour again.... tired.. tired....

Funny

I used BumiCommerce internet banking system to reload my mobile phone credit today. It showed me the transaction was succeed but i didnt receive any notification that my credit was reloaded. I tried checking my credit balance and it showed me my credit was not reloaded as expected. I thought the system need some time to process it, so I decided to wait.

After 2 hours I still didnt receive any notification. So i called the the service center for explanation. Then the funny thing started. The receptionist started to ask all kind of info to verify my identity, from ATM card number, IC number, my full name, then my mother maiden name. At first i thought i put my mother name as the mother maiden name, but the receptionist told me its not. After think for a while, i request him is there any other way to verify me? as i really cannot recall what name i put. The next question, is even funny, 'what is your memorable date?' ...... errr.... did i really key in answer for these funny question before? ah........

After thought for some time i answered him my birthday, 8th Jan, he said thats not the answer == ..... i started to feel, my 100 ringgits would just gone with these funny questions.... then he tried to remind me whether i put some special date such as my gf's birthday, my mother's birthday, etc. ...... Then i started to think 'dont tell me that i put LT's birthday' .... Ya, with no other choice, i answered him LT's birthday............

Ya, you are right, its her birthday i put ... (-.-") ..... finally he officially said that he finished the verification. Sweat ....... anyway, he said the system had some problem for mobile phone reload service, may need to wait for 2 hours then only process my transaction. Its ok, i wait....

I started to think that, is that possible i put LT's name as my mother maiden name?? .... =="

Pesta Night

Sunday went out with David, Tee, Pyen, and 23 after sending my broken window car home in Batu Maung. We firstly went to Teluk Kumbar for seafood dinner. It was evening with quite strong sunset. Tee was expose to sunset until her whole face became red, while David kept tease on her.

After dinner they planned to go Gurney Plaza for movie. On the way we passed by Pesta and discovered that Pesta is having fun fair for one month period. They changed their mind to go for fun fair. This was the 3rd time i went to Pesta, a big exhibition area which everytime i walk until my legs pain. There are a lot of temporary shop lots in there, with most of them are telecommunication stuff, cloths and food.

Along the walk i had chance to chat with Tee alone (Didnt know where the other guys gone). She is quite nice to talk with as mentioned by David. After a while finally we met those guys again and continued to explore the place. At the fun fair area, there are quite a lot of extreme games. David and 23 played those games while me, Tee and Pyen just looked at them beside.

We left the place around 11pm.

Money flied for no reason again

Its really unlucky for me recently. Saturday night went to Tambun with David, Pyen, and 23. We parked our cars quite far as there were full of cars there. We had some fun there and chit chat for some time. However, it was really shocked me when we came back to get our car. My driver seat window was broken and inside car was full of smashed glasses.

Before i realised what was happened, 23 asked me whether i hanged my smart tag on windscreen. Ya, then i only recalled that some lowlives smashed my window just for a 100+ ringgits worth smart tag and touch-n-go card. David said that it was lucky because they didnt take away my car. According to him, he can open my Kenari in 10 seconds. ==

With no choice i went to Davod's house in Kulim to sleep. The next day we couldnt get a car shop to replace the window glass as most of them closed on sunday.

This afternoon David's friend, Kelvin came and get my car for replacement and tinted. They recommend me to tint all my window or screen as they would be so easily broken.

By including to money to buy a new smart tag and touch-n-go card, i had spent around 1000 ringgit in 2 days..... what the heck...

Sigh... troublesome accident

Remember that my friend driven my car and knocked a Mercedes around 4 months ago? Its really shocked me that the matter its not settled yet!!!

I got a letter friday saying that insurance company is waiting for my notification before they can proceed with the claiming process for the victim. The letter also saying that they will not approve the claim if i fail to provide them the documents requested in letter by 29 Nov, in other words, i have to pay the Mercedes!!! .. crap

I called KC, my friend, the culprit of everything, to go police station to get the police report, as requested in the letter. At the mean time, i called KB, my friend who working as insurance agent, for the details. Finally i find out that actually is my car insurance agent's fault, he never mentioned to me that i have to notify insurance company about the accident within 14 days after making police report. This suppose to be his responbility right? And i called him to tell him about the letter, then he only tell me that he got the letter carbon copy days before, what the heck, how can he never call me up for this since he got the letter much earlier than i was?

I was furious but i didnt scold him. He try to calm me down by saying that everything will be fine but he seem dont know what really need to do. He suppose go the insurance branch to fight for me and try to delay the due date for documents submission, but he asked me to call the insurance branch myself to make the request myself. What a good service.

I fade up and make the worst assumption that insurance company will reject the claim. I told my friend that with no choice i have to charge the claim on him, even though i know that he dont really have much money now. A mercedes, a slight scratch is able to claim for 1-2k already... sigh.....

until today KC couldnt get the police report yet. I fax a letter to the insurance branch to request for postpone the due date. Hopefully everything will be fine. I really short of money already.... sigh....

My another weekend

I spent last weekend with friends from Love forum. Saturday night, Me and zonlee attended the gathering called by Adeline to discuss the matter going to Kuala Lumpur. Ya, there will be a joint gathering between Love forum members from Penang and KL. There are 10 of us from Penang will go to KL to meet the members in KL.

Anyway, not much time left for us, its around 11 more days to the date of gathering, but seem everything is still in a mess. Bus ticket, hotel room, even few members are not sure their attendants yet. Anyway, hopefully eveything will be fine and wish my first trip to KL will have a good memory.

After the discussion, we went to Penang Plaza to take supper and chit chat. Well, I eventually have chance to talk more with them since i knew them 2 months ago. Its quite good to have more friends i think. I reached home around 3am.

The next day i woke up around 9am. It was suck that i couldnt really sleep well all night. I felt so tired and wanted to sleep somemore but i couldnt. I maintained this condition whole morning. At noon, i took some bread then went out for Gurney Plaza. I met zonlee again at Gurney Plaza like last weekend, then went straight to Redbox after parked my car. We late half an hour, Kingfisher, panda, adeline, and Chamelleon were already singing in there.

Well, i was still tired. Every song i sang sound like energyless (bo lat in Hookkian) ..haha..... So i didnt sing much. After 3 hours of fun we went back around 5pm.

I am waiting my turn

Last few days there were 2 new couples formed, K&Y and M&A. I think thats worth for a good wish wishing them always stay side by side to overcome all challenges. Although there are still many problems between them waiting to be solved, but i think that they will be able to overcome them, and i hope they will.

By the way, I felt a little bit frustrated as well. When i can meet my girl? a girl that know how to appreciate me with not only saying that "You are a great guy, but i dont have feel on you". Hopefully the girl will not only appears after 1000 years, which I dont know where am I that time..... hmmm... i am still waiting....waiting my turn....

Penang Cari Love Forum gathering - Third one i think (18th November 2006)


This was the most messy love gathering since i started to join them from the first one. Why? because there were too many people. There were noone there when me and Zonlee reached coffee bean in Gurney Plaza after our Part 1 of Dark Forum gathering. In one hour time, the amount of participants shot up to 40+ people. Half of the coffee bean was occupied by us.

I was one of the hardcore members who attended every single gathering beside Chameleon, Egg, 浮罗仔, Cindy Ong, Kingfisher and of course our great organizer Adeline and her sister CutiePanda. I didnt really talk much with them as usual == .... well, i am low profile :p keekeeke...


Anyway, this gathering was full of handsome guys and pretty girls (common standard). However, the one really atracted me was not the member. The girl name Tina is tcgien's friend who he coincidently met there. I only manage to say hi to her but didnt talk much ... haha .... Anyway, the whole gathering was a bit messy as members scattering around and communicate in small groups. But i think those who really dare and active mange to get know most of the people there, of course especially those pretty girls, LOL.

Me and Zonlee left when David called me to go Seawind for Part 2 of Dark Forum gathering :)

My Dark Forum Penang Gathering (18th November 2006)

Well, David mentioned this gathering to me last week. He always promote this forum to me because he feels that this forum is very much open minded comparing Cari forum. Anyway, since i am very enthusiatic to know more friends, i joined the gathering.

I reached Gurney Plaza to meet Zonlee around 3pm and went for parking place together. According to the plan, the Dark Forum members were in cinema that time. So i throwed a sms to the organizer, Apple, to contact me after the movie finished. During the time me and Zonlee decided to go for some food first.

After food, chat and everything, we found that we sat there more than 1.5 hour, then we decided to walk around. Finally Apple called me when we dropped by Popular book store. When we walked to the entrance of book store, we saw quite number of people there (around 20 of them) but i didnt see Apple (saw her picture in the forum). So i not really sure whether those people were the members, somemore they were scattering around and didnt look like a group. i called Apple again to confirm and and ensured they are the people i am looking for, and Apple herself was entered the book store to buy something, thats why i didnt see her there.

After a brief introduction they planned to go for food at Gurney drive. Well, thats not really convenient to me as the distance is not near. So me and Zonlee decided not to follow them. Ya, the time time was still early, another 2 hours to my next gathering - Cari Penang Love Forum gathering (they now seem like gather once a month (-.-") ... kekekeke...

A while later Apple and the gang came back because outside started to rain ==. So we decided to join them for tea at foodcourt. I talked with only few of them. Around 7pm they left for steamboat. But we need to join love gathering, so didnt follow them. Thats concluded the Dark Forum Gatheringg Part 1.... kekekeke


Wahaha ... here come Part 2 :p

After we left the Love gathering we went straight to Seawind motel beach. David and Junhern were there waiting for us. Surprisingly got knew that all the Dark Forum guyz were living inside the motel. After a short while Apple, Hau, VincentLai (hopefully i spell his name correctly) and Cheewai came down. Then i only knew that actually Apple and David were actually school mate, Apple is his senior.

We had some beer and had some talk, then they went back motel again to play cards. Me, David, Junhern and 23 (he came a short while after Zonlee left) continued our men talk downstairs. After that David asked me to go up find them together. Ya, I am fine as long as he managed to get me up. There was no people at all when we reached upstairs. All were stayed in room, some were slept. David walked straight into Apple room, and i thought she was sleeping alone inside. Then few guys came out from next door and asked David dont disturb her rest. LOL, i wonder what he would do if those guys were not came out. I expect that i would need to wait him 1 hour outside :p

We had a short talk with the guys who still awake. After that we went down and continued our men talk. Thats concluded my Part 2 of this gathering.

Fell down again - Celaka betul

This morning fell down again. This is just not my week man ..... I found an expired bread on my table this morning and wanted to throw it before go to office. After i throw the bread into rubbish bag i saw the bag wrapping bread was not tied up properly. Thus i picked up the bread again and leaned on my toilet door at kitchen side to tie up the plastic bag. Ya, I forgot that the door lock was broken and i fell into toilet as the door open. sigh.....

The lucky part was i landed nicely this time, no injury and no pain. The unlucky part was nobody in home. Oh gosh... i had to get up myself... As i never fell down for past 2 years, it became so clumsy for me to get myself up. Firstly i tried with holding toilet bowl which was beside me. But i just couldnt make it. Then i crawled into kitchen to get my trolly and tried to get up with it. I failed also because my knees were too painful when i kneel on floor. I cant get up with kneel on floor first. And i found myself was almost on the limit. I started to become so tired. My hands and legs were a bit not listening to my order already.

I gave up my trolly, lied on the floor to take some rest. After a short while i decided to try with my bed. Then i crawled into my bedroom from kitchen through my toilet. By the the time i reached my bed, i started to feel my waist was so pain. I took 10 minutes rest again before i continued my struggle. Eventually i managed to climb up my bed. Phew~~ if not i might to lie on floor until my housemate shows up. By the time i got up, i was already late 1 hour to work. With no choice i had to get a half day leave again.. ==

Injured

10th November 2006, my bad day.

Zhuan called for a gathering in Juru, around 8pm. However, i crossed the Penang Bridge around 5pm to avoid terrible jam at evening later. Since the time is still early, i went to Jawi to meet David and Zhuan first before head to Huisy house to fetch her. At Jawi, I had Ba Kut Teh as early dinner with David, Zhuan and Hans. It was started to rain before we get out from the shop. Around 6.30pm me and Zhuan went to Huisy house in Bt. Tambun to fetch her. Her house is quite big. After Zhuan taken his bath then we departed to Juru.

On the way to Juru, the rain getting heavy. We waited at McDonald car park for Apple. Around 8pm, Apple came and we decided to had our dinner at Secret Recipe next to McDonald. I left my car in the car park and walked to Scret Recipe. Apple hold umbrella for me and Huisy ran herself fast towards the cafe in heavy rain, cool lady.

After some time we settle down at Secret Recipe, Zonlee, Cat, Kee and Dragon came sequently. We eat chat and drink there until around 11pm, while waiting the always late David and Junhern. Dragon left the earliest. A short while after David and Junhern reached, Kee, Cat, Zonlee, and Huisy wanted to go back as they needed to work the next day. Then we the all 5 guys left there decided to buy some beers and drink near Butterworth beach side.

I was thinking to go toilet before get my car. However, I was so careless to see a step that so near to the table we sat just now. I think that was because the floor is all same in color meanwhile the area was a bit dark therefore i couldnt see the step. By the time Apple warn to be careful I was falling down to the floor already. I felt that i was okay as i didnt feel any pain on my body and limbs. However, when they help me up I saw there was a big pool of blood on the floor. By the time only see that blood dropped from around my mouth. I thought that i crashed my teeth but thats was not. After they check out my face only saw that there was a hole on my chin. Sucks man.....

Immediately they sent me to hospital. I had 3 stitches there. For the past few days I was not able to chew hard thing. It was even worse on saturday as I couldnt really speak and drink properly. The ridiculous part was I spent 5 hours to finish one bowl of porridge that day.... grrrrr.....

Now my wound is getting better and the thread suppose to be removed on this coming friday.

相遇不是用來生氣的

我們不快樂。
在生氣之際,
我們如能多想想︰
「我不是為了生氣而工作的。」
「我不是為了生氣而教書的。」
「我不是為了生氣而交朋友的。」
「我不是為了生氣而作夫妻的。」
「我不是為了生氣而生兒育女的。」
那麼我們會為我們煩惱的心情闢出另一番安詳。

Relationship - a 2 ways communication

i visited a 'friend' (in fact i never meet him personally, just drop by his blog quite often before) blog today after a long time. Well, he seem having some problems with his girlfriend now. I noticed that there is one paragraph of confession that i feel so much wanted to share here.

01) 我告诉你的弱点, 你说你不了解你.
i told you about your weaknesses, you said that i am not understanding you

02) 我告诉你的问题, 你说是我引成的.
i told you about yor problem, you said that that i am the one who caused it

03) 我不挖苦因为我不想记得一些不快乐事情, 你觉得我是逃避问题.
i did not critic because i dont want to recall some unhappy business, but you said that i am escaping problem

04) 你说你说过就算了, 可是你都一直都那么介意.
you said that you always not take into heart what you said, but you actually taking them so hard

05) 我不高兴的反应, 你说我给你一种压力.
i not happy, you said that i am giving you pressure

06) 你不高兴的反应, 因为你说是你的性格.
you not happy, you said thats your personality


Well, of course thats only one side words, I need to know what happened from the girl's perspective as well, before i make any judgement. Anyway, if what he mentioned there is true, then we can see here, communication will never success with one way message transmission. Relationship is a two ways communication. We can never hope that someone in this world can understand us perfectly. Yup, you may feel guy A is understand you more than girl B, but i ensure you, if another matter happens, you might find out girl B is more tolerating you than guy A.

I always think that, a good communication build good relationship. However, it seem that most people now-a-days are more concerning on their own feel than how others feel. if noticed carefully, its not hard to find person which described in (05) and (06) above : I can be not happy, but you cannot. Well, dont blame on others not understanding you if you never try to understand them. This make yourself look so naive and unreasonable.

我,太方便了吗?

记得当初看《王子变青蛙》时,其中有一段,女主角对男配角说“你太方便了”。 现在想起来,的确有些滋味在心头环绕着。 一个人,如果真的为人太好,有求必应,随传随到,是不是就很容易会被当作是理所当然的。

我当然没有戏里的男配角那么伟大,但我自认,无论是对朋友,还是对我喜欢的人,我都尽我的全力去配合他们,帮助他们。可惜,我却又感觉到,我所作的一切,是不是,真的有触动到了他们的心灵。当然,我不是要求什么回报;但,总觉得,好像只有我一个人在一乡情愿的付出,有种透明的感觉,我的存在与否,似乎,不会留下一点涟漓。

也许,现代人越来越不懂得表达感激。“谢谢”两个字,似乎是那么的不珍贵,可能甚至比花花公子口里的“我爱你”更加卑贱。 又有多少人,是打从心里,把这两个字说出口的呢?

我终于了解。。。 - I've learned

我终于了解 -
你无法强迫别人爱你;
你所能做的,是使自己成为可爱的人,
其他的,则不是你所能决定的。
I've learned -
that you cannot make someone love you;
All you can do is be a person who can be loved,
the rest, is out of your control.


我终于了解 -
不论我如何付出关怀,
有些人,就是无动于衷。
I've learned -
that no matter how much I care I gave,
some people would just dont care.


我终于了解 -
建立信任,需费时多年;
但只需几秒,就能摧毁它。
I've learned -
that it takes years to build up trust;
but only seconds to destroy it.


我终于了解 -
重要的不是你一生中拥有了什么东西;
而是你一生中,拥有了什么人。
I've learned -
that it's not what thing you have in your life counts;
but who you have in your life.


我终于了解 -
你可以藉由魅力达到目的,
但只能维持15分钟;
此后,你最好有些真材实料。
I've learned -
that you can only use your charm for about 15 minutes;
After that, you'd better know something.


我终于了解 -
你不该拿自己和别人的最佳表现相比;
而应该和自己的最佳表现相比。
I've learned -
that you shouldn't compare to the best others can do;
but compare to the best you can do.


我终于了解 -
你在瞬间所作的事,
可以叫你心痛一辈子。
I've learned -
that you can do something in an instant
and make yourself regret for life.


我终于了解 -
重要的不是发生在人们身上的事,
而是他们对那事的反应。
I've learned -
that it's not what happens to others matter;
but how they react to it.


我终于了解 -
不论你切多薄,
事情总是具有两面。
I've learned -
that no matter how thin you slice it,
there are always 2 sides.


我终于了解 -
需要经历很长很长的日子,
才能使我成为我想要成为的人。
I've learned -
that it's taking me a very very long time,
to become the person I want to be.

Harddisk crashed

My company laptop was in coma and its heart (harddisk crashed) stopped functioning during my holidays in Johor Bahru. Its really sucks as i never back up my data inside. The first thing i did on monday (after breakfast) in office was went to IT department to do CPR for my laptop. After 15 minutes of diagnosis the engineer declared that heart transplant was needed. Oh my god...... mean all my data was lost?

Luckily he told me the old heart was able to function for a moment with external tool. I was just hoped that i was able to retrieve all my data. After he finished put in both the new and old heart into my laptop, we tried to browse through what were still available. Unfortunately he told me that most part of the old heart was spoilt, sobs sobs....... only 40% of data were available ... and half of them are not really important to me ...... most of my important data were gone in the wind ~~~ .. sigh....

After i discharged my laptop from hospital, i found that its just rather like a new laptop, with nothing inside... I tried to ask around if anyone still keeping the documents and emails that i needed. Surprisingly my department spice girl (who now is stationed in US), keeping half of the emails i needed... oh.. she is my saviour ..... haha......

Anyway, I still lost some important data... hopefully this wont affect my work significantly.

Back to Penang

Hello, i am back, LOL......

I enjoyed so much for my holidays. It was the first time i went back my home in Johor Bahru after 7 months. Very happy to see everyone is in healthy and good condition. I didnt really went any place during the days. Lets summarize what i had done :

1. I went to my junior's friend (Tiong) home, for his house warming party, and his birthday celebration as well. His home is quite big and look comfortable. Tiong seem saw me before in UTM, and surprizingly he was same batch with me. After that we went to nasi kandar shop to meet my secondary school classmates in Taman Tun Aminah. I made a mistake with wrongly recognized his new gf as his ex.... well, i wonder what will happen to him after he go back home :p

2. I went to UTM to meet my ex-supervisor and his student, which now is under my supervision for her master research. Well, she seem did a lot of work for the past 8 months and obtained encouraging results. So envy her as she seem learnt a lot of thing throughout the period. I wasted too much of time during my time. After the meeting my junior fetched me to her house then to Jaya Jusco (in Skudai) to meet TS and then PL. This is the first time i meet PL (get know her officially) after so many years of hearing her name (i not really recognized her during secondary school time, as my junior). I agreed with my Junior that PL is getting mature and attractive. Well, on the other hand TS seem become more thoughtful than before. He has his very strong and solid view on his life, even though some of them i feel is not really realistics. Anyway, its good to have such view, good for him to strengthen his faith.

3. I cut my long hair that i kept for 7 months. Well, seem my long hair not really appreciated among my friends and their comments were "old fashion style". I dyed my hair with light brown color with super short hair cut. I got very good response from my colleagues today with my spiky standing brownish hairs in office. Cool.... look a bit like hip hop fella now... hehe

4. I finished 20 CDs long taiwan idolic drama in 4 days... what a lame record.... The story is about the love journey between a couple that their single parent going to marry as well (in simple word, the girl's mother going to marry the guy's father, then they will become siblings-in-law). The guy is cool, until he has a nickname as 'devil'. I think most of the girls now like this kind of guy huh.... cool, stylish, do everything in own way that clash with most people's expectation, while having a warm, kind and helpful heart. Ya, thats not me, for sure.... even though i try to be bad sometime... kekekeke

5. LT called me, had some talk.

6. I cant stand my nephew. He is super naughty, hyper-active, like a monkey. He bites me with no reasons, run everywhere while crying for my dad (his grandpa), very busybody (he wants to touch everything that you going to touch)...... the worst is he speak dirty words..... feel wanted to kick him. .. in contrast, my niece is very good girl and quiet, i like her very much.

7. My cousin married, but his wedding dinner clash with my flight back to Penang yesterday. Therefore i didnt go to his dinner. Well, no choice, he declared his date too late, i had booked my place.

I think thats all I had....

8. Oh ya... forgot to mention that i changed my spectacles as well...hehehhe

Key - 钥匙

一把坚实的大锁挂在大门上,一根铁杆费了九牛二虎之力,还是无法将它撬开。钥匙来了,他瘦小的身子钻进锁孔,只轻轻一转,大锁就“啪”地一声打开了。 铁杆奇怪地问:“为什麽我费了那麽大力气也打不开,而你却轻而易举地就把它打开了呢?” 钥匙说:“因为我最了解他的心。”

(每个人的心,都像上了锁的大门,任你再粗的铁棒也撬不开。唯有关怀,才能把自己变成一只细腻的钥匙,进入别人的心中,了解别人。)


A big lock hang on a door. A big steel rod tried its best to knock the lock out but it failed to open the door. Then come a small, tiny key. The key insert itself into into the lock and turn itself gently, the lock opened in no time. The steel rod felt puzzled and asked the key "How do you do that as i failed no matter how much energy i put on the lock?" The key answered "because i understand its heart"

(Everyone's heart is like a door with big lock, you can never open it with force. Only with care, you can turn yourself become a small, tiny key, that able to go into his/her heart, and understand him/her)

Even though my experience told me that not every heart lock can be open with care and love, but i think there is no other better way right? or do you have one? Please kindly let me know if you have :) thanks

Penang 2nd Love Forum gathering


Hehe... actually this event was held on last last saturday which was 7th October but I was so tight to give a blog on it. The gathering again was organized by Adeline and quite number of people attended first gathering were there. Many new people were attended as well, LOL, with more girls this time.

The event was quite succeed as everything went fine and everyone had chance to play games together can chat to each other. Anyway, I was very low profile as usual and therefore not really knew many new people there.



The night was Adeline's birthday as well. Me, Chameleon, Eggs, Panda (Adeline's younger sister), and XiaMi were shared to buy her a big birthday cake and present. The atmosphere was quite nice until Adeline almost teared when we sang the birthday song for her. Chameleon even made a lot of 'red eggs' for her. This was the only time i knew people actually used the distributed red eggs to knock birthday girl's head as action to give good luck to her, LOL, interesting. Poor Adeline was been chased with red eggs for whole night.



Anyway, situation was became so tricky after she made her birthday wishes and wanted to take off the candles from cake with mouth, as you know, everyone was wanted to push her face on cake at the moment. She spent almost 10 minutes to prepared herself for the action, with even all the girls surrounded her to prevent guys got near to her. Eventually she abled to remove those candles 'safely'. Of course she need to cut and distribute cakes to everyone. Syanboy surprisingly throw his share of cake on Adeline's face right after he accepted it from her. Everyone was laugh and started to 'blame' Syanboy for the action, LOL, a lesson to her, always be prepared even in the situation you think is safe.



We fooled around until midnight and finally stop our gathering as the cafe shutting down. The night was quite nice and memorable. Looking forward for more events, hehe.

Food poisoning?

I got vomit and diarhea for whole night yesterday. I reached home from office around 10.30pm and was very starved. Therefore i take few bites of bread but i felt so difficult to swallow them. i thought that i was over-starved and try to swallow the bread. Suddenly i felt wanted to go toilet and gosh i sat on toilet bowl for 1 hour. I diarhea non-stopped and i started to feel so tired. As i still felt hungry then i kept eating the bread. Suddenly i vomitted out all the thing i ate, included something that i couldnt remember i ever eaten them such onion.... did i eat onion yesterday???


At midnight Raj and Andrian found out i was sick then they decided to bring me for doctor. We drove for around 40 minutes but most of the clinics were closed. The doctor eventually we found actually knows me and Andrian as he came for the Kumar BBQ last year in our home. Anyway, he is so relax and not really look like a doctor. He gave me a jab and 1 day MC.

Now i am still uncomfortable.. hopefully tomorrow i am ok and able to go for office.

Why say sorry...

This morning LT messaged me sorry, as she felt she hurt me.... in fact i was very surprised with the words. I admit i am sad and sad and very sad, but i dont think that she needs to feel any guilty or say sorry to me. Firstly it was meaningless; secondly nobody should be blamed or felt guilty as well; Love just cant be forced. If really there is right or wrong, i think i need to say sorry to her too. For the past one year i kept asking her to come out (twice a week i think; there was a period i even date her everyday), kept pushing her, until she need to use so many types of reason to turn down my date, i sure she was very pressured that time. Anyway, everything is over........ ya..... its over ......

Saturday night Irene asked us why a guy would turn down a girl's confession (what happened to her best friend), since her friend is very pretty and nice. Well, if i know the answer, i think i wont be so miserable now. You might be able to give 1000 reasons, but doesnt mean you are able to get an answer from them. There is no answer i think, you are just cant accept him/her at that moment, no matter you like him/her or not. Ya, hurt, is the only outcome; but no sorry please.... No matter what, you have to take it, no matter how pain it is.

Visit to Old Folks House


Sunday I went to Penang Home (a old folks house) with Forum friends. This event was planned and organized by us which i mentioned in my previous post. As saturday night I was slept quite late, it became so difficult for me to wake up :( I blurly clean myself and I only found that i forgot to bring my breads after wnet into my car :( hungry ah ......

When i reached yusin home, she managed to sense my car and carried a radio came out before i miss call her. She looked so busy and told me to wait her a while as she need to put on her jeans. She came out very fast as she worrried that she would be late. Hehe.... this was the first time i see her never wear nicely but only t-shirt and jeans. After came in car she asked me was she looked ugly =.= ....

Anyway, I would like to compliment her here as she woke up at 3am to prepare the sandwiches alone. I had nothing to say but salute her attitude. Kudos.


We still late at the end, LOL... But luckily yusin is cute enough so nobody was blaming her. Everything went on quite fine. We sang, dance, fed the senior citizens with sandwiches, played balls with them, fed them lunch and so on. Eventhough the situation was a bit lost control as many members were shy to take initiative to interact with the senior citizens there. However, I could feel that they were very happy to see us. Before we left Cooler as our representative distribute angpow (red pocket) to every of them. The rest of the money was donated to old folks house for daily operation expence.

My saturday and Tanglung Festival

Saturday went out with YS whole day. The day before she sent me a message said "10.45am fetch me there BJC", i misunderstood it as meet her at BJC (Bukit Jambul Complex). Luckily i got confirmed with her again and she actually meant "meet her at her home 10.45am and fetch her to BJC", what a misleading message.

She went to BJC to pay downpayment for her new car, a Perodua Kelisa. Well, her dream car is actually BMW but due to financial constraint she had to "bear" with the small Kelisa. After that we went to Gurney Plaza. The reason we went there was because she likes to read book in book store such as Popular. Nothing much to describe here as we stayed there the whole day for reading.

At evening we had to rush back Bayan Baru to meet our friends for dinner and then to join a tanglung fest at PISA (Penang International Sport Arena). However, we lost in town as YS pointed me a wrong road and we went into KOMTAR (Kompleks Tunku Abdul Rahman) area which is full with confusing road signs. We spent 20 minutes time to find the way out and we definitely would late. Therefore we called our friends not to go the place so early. As we reached the place for dinner, they were not yet there, even after we finished our food. As our friends brought his friends as well, we decided to go PISA sepearately.

At PISA, the assistants there seem not really know the exactly route to the location of event. After few misleading instructions I had walked almost half of the sport arena before i reached the spot, damn tired!!! The worse part was rain started to pour down and YS had to carry umbrella to cover both of us. Felt a bit pity on her la as she is actually weak but had to carry such a big and heavy umbrella, until she had to exchange her hand to carry it every couple of miles.

At the event spot we saw the biggest ice-carved tanglung (Lantern) in Malaysia. It was been recorded into Malaysia Guiness Record. Anyway, i didnt really feel the tanglung was attractive in any angle. At night they started the performances. Quite number of programmes were presented such as chinese orchestra, dances, live bands, magic show, sing, and mask changing. The programmes that surprised me were the mask changing and magic show. They were actually presented by same girl which is only 18 years old. However, her skills are superb and definitely she still have a lot of potential in this area. Most importantly she is pretty and sexy, kekekeke.....

The whole programme was finished around 10.30pm and the area rain again. This time the rain was heavier compared to the evening one. I walked with YS again towards my car which was parked pretty far away, while she had to carry the big umbrella again. Pity girl, hehehe...

I dont need for now

Well, my mood suddenly became bad this evening without any significant reason. Thus i tried to find someone to have dinner together, at least thats better than go home early and face the walls. David wanted me to ask Irene for dinner as she was alone in home. I surprised with that suggestion as Irene is very close with Steve recently and we all agree that they are actually developing relationship. I dont want any misunderstand happens.

However, David said why i not give it a try if i have interest on Irene, as Irene and Steve are not confirm their relationship yet. Immediately i replied him that i dont want to involve myself into a triangle relationship again. I admit that Irene is a good girl and i have a very good impression on her. But i really dont have the intention to have any relationship right now. I found myself is so sick to get a gf now. Maybe thats because i am tired, or i am escaping something, or whatever reason that i dont really care. I want a gf, but i dont need for now.

I only want to know more people and make more friends now. Ya, friends are the best.

Hi Hi...

Hi hi..... sorry for never update my blog for so many days, if you care about me :) ... I was quite tied up for last few days for my work, went out with friends, and the old folks hous visit.... i feel very tired now actually

Anyway, one of my colleague, YS, refers me a lot for master study stuff... she wants to pursue her master but in a dilemma to choose between the project provided by company or project provided by Maxis. She is more interest in tele-communication stuff but worrying about her financial state if she resign for the Maxis project. The funniest part she is so indecisive. Yesterday she might tell you that she wanted to resign, but today saying that stay in the company is better, and tomorrow she may feel that having the urge to do tele-communication stuff.... sigh... this girl... are most women so yoyo??

Charity day to Old Folks House

I am recently busy with organizing a charity day to Old Folks House togather with my Forum friends. The date of visit is 1st October. This program was suggested by masia and Cooler one month ago. However, it was been dragged until last tuesday which we eventually had our first meeting. Yusin is the chair-woman after Cooler and ShouYu gave up the position due to too busy with their own work.

Everything is going fine now. We have commited Leehoong86, YS, FlyMeToTheMoon as committees. Yusin is doing quite well even though this is her first time chairing a program like this. However, our biggest challenges now are the amount of attentees one the day and how much money we can collect from them to meet the budget we need.

Anyway, I am quite confident that this program can be done successfully :)

BBQ night

I went to Irene's home for BBQ last saturday. Around 1pm i had to come out from home to fetch Cat and Dragon already even though BBQ only would start after 8pm. After few rounds of terrific traffic jam enetually i managed to get them in my car around 2.30pm. The tricky part was Penang started to rain heavily that time. First time I drive 2 ppl to Juru (quite far from Penang) in rainy day. After crossed the Penang bridge i started to speed up my car as it was late from the time we promised to Irene. LOL, well, the way i drove really shocked the 2 girls in my car - shift between lanes in speed of 110km/h, overtook cars and beaten a red traffic light :p. Sorry for that, hiihhihi, will take care for that next time

We reached Irene's home around 3.30pm and she was cleaning her house. Then the 3 girls started to prepare the food. '23' (Irene's friend) helped to arrange chairs and others. Well, I didnt know what i could help and they just let me to watch TV for whole evening. Felt little bit guilty to let those girls do all the stuff and i just waited for food :(

Around 8pm Apple came. Finally there was someone to talk with. The girls and 23 started BBQ the food. Need to say well done to them as they taken care of almost everything. After that Huisy, Zhuan, Pyen, Yun, David, Hans, Vivian, JunHeng came one after another. By the time it was already 11pm. Pyen bought a 3 litres volume of VSOP. Man, I never see such a big bottle of liquer.

After all people finished their food then we started to play games and drink. We played 'bing bong biang' and '369', the one lost had to drink. Cat, JunHeng and Yun the one drank the most. Around 2am Ken reached. We continued the games all the way until 6am. I drank quite some of liquer but i was not really drunk, in contrast my mind was very clear, eventhough my body was damn tired. Most people left by 8am. I took some rest and left with Dragon, Cat and Huisy to meet David and Apple in butterworth to have Brunch (Breakfast + Lunch). After sent all the girls home I only abled to reach home around 3pm on Sunday. By the time I couldnt withstand anymore and slept on bed straight away until night.

Happy Meal Competition

Yesterday my company held a Happy Meal competition and every group in my department had to participate and prepared 3 dishes and 1 drink. This activity is not bad as it provides a good chance for employees to tighten their relationship.

There were some criterias set. No fire, healthy food, halal (allowed for Muslim), and must be prepared within 1.5 hour. My group was divided into 2 teams to join this competition. My team had prepared steamed smashed pumpkins mixed corns, spaghetti with tomato sauce, salad with olive oil, yogurt mixed honey dew, and yogurt mixed mango.

i didnt really help much, except dig out all the fresh from a pumpkin to make it skin as bowl for our foods. Besides that, i also created name for each food and need to tell the judges how about our foods. Anyway, i think all of us quite enjoy it even though we didnt win the title. :)

自以为是 - Arrogant

被一个自己认为自以为是的人指责自己自以为是的时候,你会继续认为他自以为是,还是从新反省自己? 既然已经认为他自以为是了,又还能反省自己吗?

If a guy that you feel he is arrogant, criticizing that you are arrogant, will you re-evaluate yourself? or insist that he is arrogant? .... Since you are feeling that he is arrogant, are you really able to re-evaluate yourself?

Motivate my life >.< efil ym etavitoM

I had a discussion with friends - how to deal with life that with out motivation. Yup, I think i am facing the similar problem as well. After LT left Penang, I seem lost my motivation to do anything.

Cat graduation celebration night

Last night went out with Cat, Zhuan, Dragon again for Cat's graduation celebration. Cat was just graduated from UUM (Universtiti Utara Malaysia) 1 month ago. Her convocation will be on 11th September, same date with the 911 anniversary. Anyway, this should be a happy day for her.

The steamboat shop was fullhouse when we reached there. Luckily the boss saw me and recognized that i went there before for Cool gathering. He specially let us taken a table that booked by others. After 2 hours of BQQ, cooked, fried, chat and jokes, all of us reached our limits, but there were still some food that couldnt finish. Penalty will be charged if left any extra food there. Therefore all of us, especially me and zhuan had to squeeze as most as food into our mouth. Haha.... few pieces of beef that we really couldnt finish, we left them burn on the fire and then left on table ... hmmm... very wasted right?

After that we went to e-gate to meet Davids and Irene. Both of them are knew from Penang IM group too. David is working as assistant in a mobile phone shop. Irene then is a stewardess in SIA (Singapore International Airline). Ya, first time i know a stewardess as friend, LOL. We sit there drink and chat for quite long time. Suddenly I got a call from Weiyue, which i had never expected, since he is always OT at night recently. He asked me to look at 6 o'clock direction (mean left), but i got turn my head to right. Ya, sure, he teased me that 3 o'clock direction :s .... Surprisingly he was outside the shop. Anyway, he was with his friends so we didnt really talk much.

Then David brought quite number of friends. He really know a lot of people man.... Jin, Ham, then lastly came another pretty girl. We left the place only after 12.30am.

Remembering Yvonne Tan

http://yvonnetannz.blogspot.com


I got a blog from my friend about Yvonne Tan. She passed away in Auckland, New Zealand June 2006, due to brain tumor that couldnt be eliminated even after several operations. She was an actress that ever involved in few famous drama and movie including Xena - The Warrrior Princess. However, what really touched me is her courage and faith to face the death.

Yvonne Tan’s funeral at the SGINZ ( Soka Gakkai Internation New Zealand) Culture Centre in Auckland, Saturday morning; 17 June 2006, was an event. It set a precedent, it was the first funeral service held in a Kaikan in New Zealand. It was a celebration, a festival of song and dance, with an Austin Powers theme, which Yvonne had requested, just prior to her death. The reason - She wanted everyone to be HAPPY on that day !.


Was this really a funeral? ... No, It was a celebration! As Yvonne's wishes


I adapted here a poem writen by Yvonne :

~ Read Me ~

Who knewIt could happen,
That our paths would cross one day
And here you are.
Remembering every word,
And of all the things
The spirit has to say...

Guess I
Was hoping that,
You wouldn't see right through me.
Then... there you are,
Pondering every word.
So should I...
Or should I not speak?

Slowly
I get to know you,
The intimacy of ink & paper.
There you are.
Reading me like a book.
And I am comfortable in your presence,
There cannot be one without the other.

Untouched
Ideas through the years,
Releasing of the sub-conscious mind.

So. Here you are.
Absorbing every word.
And through you and this,
Some of me will float in everlasting time.

Poem By:
Yvonne Tan

Malaysia



Malaysia is a federation of 13 states in Southeast Asia, formed in 1963. The country consists of two geographical regions divided by the South China Sea:


Peninsular Malaysia (or West Malaysia) on the Malay Peninsula shares a land border on the north with Thailand and is connected by the Johor-Singapore Causeway and the Malaysia-Singapore Second Link to the south with Singapore. It consists of the 9 sultanate states of Johor, Kedah, Kelantan, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Perak, Perlis, Selangor and Terengganu, two states with a governor namely Malacca and Penang, and the two federal territories of Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur.

Malaysian Borneo (or East Malaysia) occupies the northern part of the island of Borneo, bordering Indonesia and surrounding the Sultanate of Brunei. It consists of the states of Sabah and Sarawak and the federal territory of Labuan island.

As states of Malaysia were formerly British colonies, many Malaysian institutions are based on those of the British. For instance, the Malaysian system of government draws heavily on the British Westminster system. The head of state is the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (colloquially referred to as the King), who is elected from among the state sultans to a five-year term, making Malaysia one of two elective monarchies in the world (the other is Vatican City).


As a constitutional monarchy, executive power is vested in the Prime Minister, with the King serving as more of a figurehead. The legislative branch consists of Parliament, which is mostly based on the British Parliament. A judiciary has also been established under the Constitution. The Barisan Nasional (National Front), a coalition of several political parties, has ruled Malaysia since Malaya's independence in 1957.

>

Initially heavily dependent on agricultural and mining activities, the Malaysian economy has since shifted its focus to manufacturing and tourism as its major sources of income. Despite the shift, Malaysia remains one of the top producers of rubber and palm oil. In the 1970s, the government implemented the controversial New Economic Policy (NEP) to address an income disparity between the Malays and Chinese.

Although historically dominated by the Malays, modern Malaysian society is heterogeneous, with substantial Chinese and Indian minorities. Malaysian politics have been noted for their allegedly communal nature; the three major component parties of the Barisan Nasional each restrict membership to those of one ethnic group, and the only major violence the country has seen since independence was the May 13 Incident of racial rioting in the wake of an election campaign based on racial issues.

Cook

Suddenly have the urge to cook, especially soup. In fact I have the idea since last year but I couldnt do it until now. I think i need someone to help me to prepare the materials, especially meat and fish kind of raw material, which i never deal with before. This remind me one of my colleague's shocking declaration. She said she is very enjoying in cook and WASHING DISHES. Cool... I wonder how many girls nowadays do really cook often. Her husband is so lucky and can always enjoy her superb cooking skills. Too bad her husband forbidden her from cooking for other people, especially guys!

I always hope that I can get a wife that enjoying cook, or at least, willing to cook. I never expect a girl who even lazy to cook for her ownself will enjoy cooking for her husband and kids for long term (of course, with whatever I can help. I am not that kind guy who will watch tv or chatting online while wife is busying in kitchen... anyway, its up to you to believe it or not). Ya, its true that she can still cook even she is not enjoying, but dont you think that already lost the meaning on those effort?

I think I will like to cook, or maybe, enjoying in cook. hmm.... but i worry i will burn my house if i do it alone, LOL....

好胜的我

第一次用华语写我的部落格。其实最主要的原因是我不知道“好胜”英文应该叫什么 :S 很糟糕吧。 还好意思在美国公司上班,真是丢人。

昨晚和ET聊了相当长的一段时间,应该有3个小时吧。聊到一半,玩笑开着开着,她突然说我和以前一样好胜,什么都要说赢别人。。。 呵呵,其实这点我早就知道了,就是怎么也改不过来。 回头想想,也就是这股好胜的性格让我熬到今天吧。我的生活一切都比普通人难,如果没有那股死不认输的性格,我想我早就放弃自己了吧。 那我这股好胜的性格到底是好事坏呢? 我也不知道

有时候还真的很矛盾。很多时候话就是那么自动的从口而出,说出来之后才发觉那句话会让人觉得我很爱面子。但我想很多时候我说的话只是说出了我的想法,我应该没有强词夺理吧, 呵呵,可能有但我自己不知道 :P

无论如何,只要没有冒犯到别人,没有造成不好的后果,一点点地好胜应该可以被接受吧。

Suddenly I has a feeling want to start everything in my life all over again. hmmm... maybe have to review my life vision as well. My life for the past 3 months was a bit messy and unorganized. I think its time to review all my plans again.

Very tiring weekend

I just went through a very very tiring weekend.

On friday night i had a dinner with my lab mates during my research time in university. The dinner was quite nice and it was quite happy too as I had never meet them for quite some time. There were 8 of us including KW and Avin's girlfriend.

On saturday, I went to my colleague (she is my junior as well), Ira's wedding in Kepala Batas. I met up my other colleagues before that and had dim-sum as our brunch. I saw my junior Sharon as well, after 3 years since i last met her. Her boyfriend is my colleague + junior as well, LOL. It took more than 1 hour for us to reach the venue. I had driven quite fast on highway to catch their cars and thats really challenging :D , fun too... The funny thing was i drove follow my friend's car into 'touch n go' lane at highway toll and only found that none of us in car having 'touch n go' card. Luckily there was no car behind us and I reversed my car immediately. But the cash paying lane was in long queue, I couldnt reverse my car any further and so I tried to sneak in the queue by put on signal. Then those cars went through one by one with no intention to let me in and somemore waived their hands and smiled on us. :S

As we reached the venue, Ira was just reached as well and the ceremony started. I couldnt really recognize her as she put on some make up and taken off her glasses. After taken some food and photoes we left the place and went to Megamall in Prai. We just wanted to kill some time there as they planned to have seafood dinner in Batu Kawan. I couldnt join them as I promised a friend to attend Tzu Chi charity show in Pesta. Morgan and Kelvin followed me went back early.



We went to fetch YS for dinner and then sent Morgan and Kelvin back. A bit surprise the YS told me that she wants to resign to pursue her master degree. I felt a little sad as I am quite close with her. I not really have many close female colleagues in office. We were slightly late for the show. The most terrible thing is the car park is very very far from the stage. I walked for maybe more than 500 metres to reach there. My shirt was all wet when i sat down in the hall. The show was not bad. I think that was the first time I ever hear a famous taiwan singer sang live in front of me. It was amazing they can sing so well and touching the audience. The show finished around 10pm and I had to walk again back to car park :( . After sending YS back, I rushed back to home and rest. Thats really tired. But the next day I had to go out as well. sobs sobs.

Sunday I went to Pesta again for Tzu Chi charity sales. There was so crowded and jam like hell. The worst part was the map printed on coupon was so misleading. I turned into the wrong path (even though i just went there the night before, how stupid i am). After I came out the the path I joined the terrific jam again. Finally i reach the 'correct' path, but they told me that the entrance was only for exit! Even though that was the only entrance printed on coupons!!! They wanted me to take a big round to enter from the main entrance, which you couldnt find on coupons even though you check them out with microscope. The best part was, the main entrance is actually just 100 metres behind me, but i spent one hour to go into makro to take a turn and came back. That was a sucked planning man.

As i finally parked my car in Pesta, I met my collegue CJ and started to walk around. There were so many stalls until i couldnt visit all of them. We bought and ate and checked out everything we could see there. I had more than RM150 coupons and I really bought a lot of food. Half of the food (I think more than half :P) i gave to Michael, hehehe.....

Ya, That concluded my very tiring weekend. phew ~~ ....

Tired ah..... am i going to sick?

Very tired recently.. and always woke up around 5+am..... My colleague told me that may be a sign of going to sick... hmmm ... so sleepy now

No lay-off?

Today's corporate news saying that our CEO announced he will try his best not to lay-off his co-workers, instead, re-deployment is a better choice for him. Yup, this is a good news actually as it may relieve so many of us. Anyway, how far his words can be believed? Hopefully he is really trying his best!

Penang 1st Massive Cari Love Forum gathering

Well, I joined Cari Love Forum 1st massive gathering in Penang in saturday. I had been waiting photoes for 2 days to update here but seem the people still not able to upload them. So i think i will just update my blog first and attach photoes later.

There was little girl, Yusin, ride in my car that day. I was a bit shocked when i first looked at her dress :p She was so cute, Kawaii neh.... LOL, but she was a little bit looked like underage, anyway, she is young wat, only 20. She said she just got her scholarship and wanted to buy me the expenses on the gathering BBQ. Ya, since she was so enthusiastic on that, I agreed her. Then she passed me RM50, and what really surprised me was she told me that "It would be good for guy to give the money in front of others". She is young, but seem she is quite understand how to take care of guy's dignity, even though i am really dont mind about who is giving money in front of others.

After fetched her at her house, we went to Makro to wait for Adeline, the organizer. We followed their car and lost them in Greenland. Then Yusin only told me that she felt that she know how to go Seawind =.=" ... At Seawind, the first guy i met was 浮罗仔。It is so surprised that he is only working in my company. After signed up the participants list and paid money, we started to BBQ and eat. Adeline and her sister, Gemin, and their friend, Tze Ling, Bryan, 小虾米,me, yusin and 浮罗仔 were sit surrounding same table. After a while more people came. 变色龙, 无聊笨蛋, 字母怪兽, tkchuan, kslim, kingfisher, hocksoon, karen, angel, 微洁,cindy, winnie..... and a lot more from another gahtering (Cari car team) that held at same place same time (they purposely made it actually).

I left the place after around 1.10pm as yusin must rush back to home by 11pm. According to her, this is her home rule, and can never violate it =.=' .... The others seem stayed there until 1am. I missed a lot of fun thing i think. I talked a lot with yusin in car as there was jam along the road back to her home. We reached her house around 11.15pm, slightly late, but seem still acceptable by her parents. I reached home around 11.40pm and managed to watch the last 10 minutes of Arsenal game, LOL.

It was a quite good experience even though i am quite passive in the gathering not really talked much with all the people. But i still feeling happy, by knowing quite few new friends. :)

Major retrenchment

My company is almost confirmed with major retrenchment in coming few weeks. I think this is the biggest one in history. I wonder how much of them will disappear from here, 10k? 15k? (of course i mean worldwide), thats a lot man....

It is really sucks that we have to carry the effects of lame management and strategy planning they made. We just intaken around 15k of people in last 2 years, isnt that funny?

Retrenchment letter to home?

Just heard that a guy in kulim received retrenchment letter in home. Well, i dont think thats the appropriate way to inform the employee for such news. One of my senior said he felt no problem with that and said thats only my personal view... hmm.... is it? I dont think everyone is really want family know about their retrenchment (for whatever reason they have). Giving the letter in office at least leave the employees a choice to decide whether they want to inform the news to their family. Anyway, thats only my personal opinion.

Pulau Ketam gathering -> disappointingly dropped

This is the third time i organize my ex-coursemates gathering. Well, its not that i like to do it but because nobody else willing to take the responsibility. This activity is used to organize by me, yuanwen, kangboon and seowli. However, the participation rate is always low. The first SCC gathering was succeed with 7 participants, 2nd one is better, with 13 participants. This round is a bit bad because with only 7 participants, few of them felt want to pull out. With no choice i think this year the gathering will most probably be canceled. Its quite disappointing actually. I wonder that how long this activity can survive as most of the people treat this event with very low priority. Seowli is furious last night and told me that she doesnt want to do it again in future. Sigh....

First half performance report

I got my first half year 2006 performance feedback last friday. Surprisingly my feedbacks are good and all are positive. There are 2 things that i need to focus and improve :- my presentation skill and be more proactive. Thats thrue that my presentation skill is sucks. I cant really express well in English. About proactiveness.... hmm... i admit that i am not aggressive enough. Anyway, I was really happy with the report :)

What happened in Weekend?

I shocked when i open my blog today. It had been 3 days i didnt update it... hmmm ... was that long? i remembered is only 2 days.. Am i losing my memory again? .. :(

Anyway, i didnt go any place this weekend. Its tired as i went out almost every week last month. Felt want to cut my hairs but lazied to go out.

Last night my housemate's, Raj, car tyre flat but he failed to unscrew the nuts in order to replace it. LOL. He and Adrian (My another housemate) worked on it for an hour but still failed to do it. They put the spanner on tyre nut and both step on it and swung, LOL. But the nut was still tightly sticked on its place without any rotation at all! I wonder how it was screwed on the tyre last time, it was so tight!

Finally Raj called up his rescue team, Jeff and Stephen. After another 30 minutes, eventually the 4 guys defeated the 5 stubborn nuts. LOL.

Short term memory lost --> STML

I have very serious STML recently. I wonder why that would happen. For example today i have been forgotten a lot of things.

1. This morning one of my net-friend say hi to me and then ask me to see her display picture, sincei never know her look. But due to my office only allowing windows messenger that does not support display picture feature, i cant see her picture there. After I came back from lunch, I message her to ask her why she messaged me this morning. The funny part was i recalled it after 10 minutes and message her again to tell her what i recalled. hmmm....

2. My colleague bought me lunch and I thought want to pay her after finished the food. As after finished the food we raised up some discussion and I forgot about it. Then when came out from cafe and walking back to lab, i recalled the payment and thought want to pay her in lab. After I came out from toilet and I totally forgot about that. She talked with me again for 30minutes but i didnt recall anything about the payment. I recalled it again after I reached home and felt want to sms her after bath.... again, forgotten, until now I only recall it!!! because i am writing this blog ... eventually, the sms was sent 5 minutes ago. LOL

A new couple

Last night surprisingly knew that Enigma and Margaret already attached to each other. Thats a good news to me. As before they meet each other, I already sensed that they are interesting to each other. Therefore i made myself as busybody to help them get closer to each other. I arranged an appointment for them and that was a good one for them. Eventually my effort rewarded, they already started their new stage of relationship for a week. I wish them can be loving each other forever. Ya, I love to see couples who live in sweet. :)

Margaret farewell meet

Margaret is going to HongKong to study for 4 months. Therefore we who always chat in the Penang forum group chat decided to do a farewell dinner for her. There were 8 of us attended the dinner last night in Tesco Pizza Hut - Me, Enigma, Dragon, Cat, Huisy, Margaret, Apple and Zhuan. This was the first time i meet most of them as well (I met Enigma, Margaret, and Apple before). Huisy is very much shorter than I expected, LOL. Anyway, the dinner was not bad. They also did a integrated photo as shown below for Margaret. Looks not bad huh....



After dinner Margaret had to go back with her parents, then Zhuan was going back to Alor Setar, the rest of us then decided to go for KTV. We got a room in Oriental and then sang for 4 hours there. Enigma was sleeping most of the time. Cat and Dragon drink and smoke quite lot (they declared that they seldom do that). Are they having lots of problem and get stress? hmmm... i not sure. I think I cant help much as well. I reached home around 5am and straightaway collapsed on my bed :)
