2008 Wrap-up

In a couple of hours we'll be kissing 2008 goodbye. This year has certainly flew by. For me this year has been pretty much good albeit the sucky moments. Bid my uni farewell and I am currently bumming. There were ups and downs but nothing severe. The sucky moments were too trivial to bring me down. Come this new year I would have to make decisions that would change my life one way or another.

* Continue studying

* Enter the world of politics (worklife)

* Get settled down?

Seriously, I don't know. Hope the best awaits me in 2009. Farewell 2008.

Walking Marathon

Given the craze of marathons going around, I took part in one myself. My walking gear for the marathon include: High heels, sneakers, and slippers. I started the marathon with high-heels. Then switched to wearing sneakers and finally, settling for slippers.

My legs have undergone a great deal of intensive work out from a walking marathon that started in the past few days. For four consecutive days I have been walking non stop. My legs have not undergone such extreme work out in a while. The walking marathon kick start on Friday and clocked a six hour long walking and shopping marathon. Then on Saturday, the walks extended beyond the mark set on Friday on another round of shopping spree. On Sunday, I managed to clock a couple more hours. Then on Monday, another four hours was added to the record. My legs are so overused and are aching now. It's going to take a while to get accustomed to this.

After all these walking, I only managed to get several items. Sigh. A long way more to go. (*Sings "These Boots are make for walking" ... These boots are make for walking. That's just what they'll do....)

Two Sides of a Burger

Once upon a time, someone who really loves fish created a different way of eating fish. The person de-boned the fish and deep-fried it. This person then put the deep fried fish into a bun. Whala .....the Fillet-o-fish was born. Over the years, this burger has transformed into various shapes and sizes. It was once bigger than my face and bigger than my hands could hold that it had to be halved. That was long ago. Actually not that long ago. The big bun used to be wrapped in a piece of blue paper but now has been framed in a box.

Now I have outgrown the burger. See my hand is bigger than the burger. Or has the burger shrunk? It is so cute. It deserves a place in the miniature museum along with other lilliputian items.

There is a new craze in town. Everybody is going dodo over donuts. Since this shop opened its doors, it has been filled with long queues. Throngs of people swarm the outlet, eager to have the experience of tasting donuts. The intensity of their eagerness might lead them to camp outside the shop if they have to. These people are diagnosed with the "new loo" syndrome. The symptom of the syndrome is whenever a new shop opens, it will be packed. But after a while, the craze fades and so does the business. For the moment, the craze appears to stay.

To get to the core of the craze is to get hands on. Hence I got hold of a box of donuts. The design of the box reminds me of the backdrop of my blog. See the similarity?

The donuts come in different colours and there are a variety of different flavours to choose from. The donuts that make the cut.

From left to right.
Top row: Chocolate, Kiwi and Durian.
Bottom row: Cherry, Chocolate-cappuccino and Cheese.

I don't remember the fancy donut names so I am just naming the flavours.The Cherry flavoured donut is lovely. The sourish cherries neutralised the sweetness of the donut although the donut itself was not really sweet. The Cheese donut was lovely too. It has a nice blend of sweet and salty. The appearance of the Durian donut caught my attention. It stood out amidst the other rainbow coloured ones. Its appearance reminded me of a blow fish. However, it tastes so-so only. The Chocolate-cappuccino donut was also so-so only. The Chocolate donut was ok. Overall, Big Apple did a better job than the other existing flavoured donut shops because Big Apple donuts are less sweet.

I have been having difficulties getting to sleep at night. This has been ongoing for a while. What appears to be a symptom related to study stress has stretched far beyond that. I find that I fall asleep easier during exam period. However, given that the exam is over for some time, this situation is of worry. Am I turning into a bat? The thing is, I don't take afternoon naps anymore. So, what keeps me awake? I refrain from consuming caffeinated drinks at night. I even cut down caffeine consumption during the day.

Last night, I hardly slept again. Currently, while writing this entry, I feel dizzy and nauseous. If this condition persists, I might wear out before my time is out. I need to get some sleep. Where are the sheep when you need them?

To Do List

There is so much that needs to be done and I have yet to get started. I am embarking a new chapter in life. No more fooling around. For starters, my wardrobe needs to be overhaul. Need to get new clothes for the new chapter of my life. The usual dress code is no longer suitable.Getting new clothes is such a grueling task. It is not that I dislike shopping but the fact of hunting for something I like and fits me like a sock is just arduous. Not to mention formal clothes comes with a hefty price tag.

Apart from that, it seems impossible to find a suitable bag.It is either too big, too small, or just simply ugly. Why is it that the purchasers can't bring in proper, or should I put it as fashionable yet functional bags? These people surely have bad taste. I feel that there need to be amendments to the requirements for hiring purchasers. One should have fashion sense to be a purchaser. Don't just bring in rubbish and place a hefty price tag on it to claim it is worthy of purchase. The product should have value to the customer and not value to the company. Simple common sense will go a long way.

There is also the shoe problem. Comfortable shoes are ugly. Fashionable shoes are only good to look at. Even the most expensive shoes fail to perform. Wearing the wrong shoe will lead to a bad day because when the feet hurts, your mood, emotion and all will be affected. The issue faced is even money can't buy Cinderella a glass slipper. There simply is no suitable shoe available. All that are available are eyesores and a pain in the foot.

Next on the list is an essential tool. Although there are other gadgets that can tell time (such as looking at the sun, the handphone, the laptop, etc), nothing beats the watch. The watch serves as the time teller as well as an accessory. Finding the perfect match is another issue.

Being an "artist" is part of growing up. Nowadays, one needs to be skilled at "facial art". Whether or not you make the cut is dependent on the first impression. If you show up looking like a Chinese opera singer, you will be sure to be told to audition with the opera. Make-up skill is of vital importance. But I have not had any lessons on it. Note to education providers: Make make-up a subject. Worse still, I don't even own make-up.

And then there is the long overdue item to get....the wallet. Velcro ones are no longer feasible (stopped using them since leaving high school). The current one should have retired long ago. However, since failing to get a substitute, the ailing fellow is still servicing me.

There is also the absolute essential. The necessity for mobility. The glorious creation of human kind. The car. It is about time I have one to call my own.

My list is endless. Looking for sponsors. Both cash and cheque is acceptable.

Little Wonders

Little Wonders
By Rob Thomas

Soundtrack: Meet The Robinsons
Title: Little Wonders (Rob Thomas)

let it go,
let it roll right off your shoulder
don't you know
the hardest part is over
let it in,
let your clarity define you
in the end
we will only just remember how it feels

our lives are made
in these small hours
these little wonders,
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away,
but these small hours,
these small hours still remain

let it slide,
let your troubles fall behind you
let it shine
until you feel it all around you
and i don't mind
if it's me you need to turn to
we?ll get by,
it's the heart that really matters in the end

our lives are made
in these small hours
these little wonders,
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away,
but these small hours,
these small hours still remain

all of my regret
will wash away some how
but i can not forget
the way i feel right now

in these small hours
these little wonders
these twists & turns of fate
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away but these small hours
these small hours, still remain,
still remain
these little wonders
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away
but these small hours
these little wonders still remain

Why Do Men Have Nipples?

A blogger post this question "Why Do Men Have Nipples?" and received numerous replies. There is one particular reply that I liked most.

Once upon a time, God created men who have big boobs. Thinking that men are lonely without their counterparts, they will be lonely. Thus, women were created for the men, but this time, the women had no boobs yet. Unfortunately, the women were ignored as the men like boobs, big boobs to be exact. The men played each other's boobs everyday without fail and let the ladies off neglected since they have no boobs.

Furious, God decided that the men were outrageous to neglect HIS godly creation of female. Thus, he sentenced that all males will have their boobs removed and had their nipples remain to remind of their stupidity. And all the females had the boobs from God.

Since then, women have boobs and most unevolved men are still chasing after boobs even after all these evolving years. :P

(Extremely creative answer. If it were an answer for exam, this person would get a distinction for it. Well done.)

The wonders of China. The land of the innovative, creative, imaginative and intelligent.


Oh I really love this. The puma with spikey mane.Very creative indeed.


Chima. What a name. Wonder why it's wearing a skirt though.


Combination of Puma and Jansport I think. Love the sleeping animal.


Very smart to package their shampoo identical to P&G's Rejoice.


Swoosh with another hook. Salute those who can't tell the difference.


There is one "imitation" outlet named KLG with a hen for the logo instead of Colonel Sanders. Too bad I didn't take a picture of it.




Mother: Go get me a packet of TIDS (TITS).


OLAY is a lotion. Don't know how it became shampoo. Maybe their shampoo is multipurpose .

Woman jailed after "killing" virtual husband

I came upon this when diverted back to the main page after checking mail. Neat!

TOKYO - A 43-year-old player in a virtual game world became so angry about her sudden divorce from her online husband that she logged on with his password and killed his digital persona, police said.

The woman, who has been jailed on suspicion of illegally accessing a computer and manipulating electronic data, used his ID and password to log onto the popular interactive game "Maple Story" to carry out the virtual murder in May, a police official in the northern city of Sapporo said Thursday. He spoke on condition of anonymity because of department policy.

"I was suddenly divorced, without a word of warning. That made me so angry," the official quoted her as telling investigators and admitting the allegations.

The woman, a piano teacher, had not plotted any revenge in the real world, the official said.

She has not yet been formally charged. If convicted, she could face up to five years in prison or a fine up to US$5,000.

Players in "Maple Story" create and manipulate digital images called "avatars" that represent themselves, while engaging in relationships, social activities and fighting monsters and other obstacles.

In virtual worlds, players often abandon their inhibitions, engaging in activity online that they would never do in the real world. For instance, sex with strangers is a common activity.

The woman used login information she got from the 33-year-old office worker when their characters were happily married to kill the character. The man complained to police when he discovered that his online avatar was dead.

The woman was arrested Wednesday and taken 620 miles (1,000 kilometers) from her home in southern Miyazaki to be detained in Sapporo, where the man lives, the official said.

The police official said he did not know if she was married in the real world.

Bad online behavior is usually handled within the rules set up by online worlds, which can ban miscreants or take away their virtual possessions.

In recent years, misbehavior in the virtual world has in some cases had consequences in reality.

In August, a woman was charged in the U.S. state of Delaware with plotting the real-life abduction of a boyfriend she met through the virtual reality Web site "Second Life."

In Tokyo, a 16-year-old boy was charged with stealing the ID and password from a fellow player of an online game in order to swindle virtual currency worth US$360,000.

Not progressing much

I have approximately two weeks before my finals. Yet I am still moving at sloth pace. What is with me and this sloth pace anyway? Being unwell is probably one of the reasons that is slowing things down. It's like virus spreads faster when the exam draws closer. Everyone turns into an incubus of virus. Being contained in a air conditioned room together for hours worsens things. Instead of sharing knowledge, we share virus and germs. Being exploited is another thing that makes life less rosy. Life could never be rosy because of thorns. Someday, there ought to be a new breed of thornless roses. Ok, now back to work. Have to get my engines started. Probably need a hybrid engine now (for environmental purposes). Before I can do that, I will need to find my socks, and keys.

The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn't already know. I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with a smile that lit up her entire being.

She said, 'Hi handsome. My name is Rose. I'm eighty-seven years old. Can I give you a hug?'

I laughed and enthusiastically responded, 'Of course you may!' and she gave me a giant squeeze.

'Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?' I asked.

She jokingly replied, 'I'm here to meet a rich husband, get married, and have a couple of kids...'

'No seriously,' I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her to be taking on this challenge at her age.

'I always dreamed of having a college education and now I'm getting one!' she told me.

After class we walked to the student union building and shared a chocolate milkshake.

We became instant friends. Every day for the next three months we would leave class together and talk nonstop. I was always mesmerized listening to this 'time machine' as she shared her wisdom and experience with me.

Over the course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and she easily made friends wherever she went. She loved to dress up and she reveled in the attention bestowed upon her from the other students. She was living it up.

At the end of the semester we invited Rose to speak at our football banquet. I'll never forget what she taught us. She was introduced and stepped up to the podium. As she began to deliver her prepared speech, she dropped her three by five cards on the floor.

Frustrated and a little embarrassed she leaned into the microphone and simply said, 'I'm sorry I'm so jittery. I gave up beer for Lent and this whiskey is killing me! I'll never get my speech back in order so let me just tell you what I know.'

As we laughed she cleared her throat and began, ' We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing.

There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humor every day. You've got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die.

We have so many people walking around who are dead and don't even know it!

There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up.

If you are nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don't do one productive thing, you will turn twenty years old. If I am eighty-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never do anything I will turn eighty-eight.

Anybody can grow older. That doesn't take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding opportunity in change. Have no regrets.

The elderly usually don't have regrets for what we did, but rather for things we did not do. The only people who fear death are those with regrets.'

She concluded her speech by courageously singing 'The Rose.'

She challenged each of us to study the lyrics and live them out in our daily lives. At the year's end Rose finished the college degree she had begun all those years ago.

One week after graduation Rose died peacefully in her sleep.

Over two thousand college students attended her funeral in tribute to the wonderful woman who taught by example that it's never too late to be all you can possibly be.

REMEMBER, GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY. GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL. We make a Living by what we get. We make a Life by what we give.

God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

'Good friends are like stars....... You don't always see them, but you know they are always there.'

*Apparently not many people grow up

The Amazing Race

Why bother to sign up for a race around the world when your life is already one? Why sign up to be tortured and push over your limits when it greets you in the face everyday from the minute you open your eyes? The only difference is, you don't get the prize money in the end.

My life has been the live version of "The Amazing Race" right from the beginning. There are roadblocks after roadblocks. One barricade after another. Just when you think you have reached the pit stop, the torture starts all over again. And the amazing thing is, I didn't even sign up for it.

There is not just one mastermind in "my" race. There are infinite numbers of them. And you will never know when they will launch attack at you. There is no dodging as you never know which direction they will come charging. When you finish one lag of the race, you do not get words of praise or a pat on the back for doing a good job. Instead you hear insults and words that bring you down.

Why do people find pleasure in the suffering of others? Well that's because they are sore losers that find gratification in bringing others down. They are failures in their own lives and the only way they can console themselves of their pathetic existence is through bringing others down. Sadly though, karma does not apply to this ever multiplying species. Karma only applies to those who have a good heart. They don't even know what karma is. All they know is kurma. With more joining the pack, "The Amazing Race" will never come to an end. More rice to go with the kurma!

Skinny T

Frontal view

Rear view

The latest addition to the cybershot family. Aptly named Skinny T, this touch screen camera is only 13.9mm in width,has a resolution of 10.1 megapixels and like previous versions have smile detector. It will automatically snap a photo when a smile is detected. Trust me I tried it and it worked. It also comes equipped with "Creative Paint" that enables users to decorate their photos in the camera itself. I suppose you can erase the unwanted people that appears in the photo when they are not supposed to. That is just my thought. Not too sure whether it can be done. Can only tell when I get to try it.

The different colours that Skinny T is available in.

Skinny T for skinny me. Haha. Sony designers are always thinking of me when they design their cameras. How touched. Dying to get one.

It has been a couple of days already. Yet the swell has not subsided. In fact it has gotten worse. IT really hurts. My face is swollen. Boo Hoo. To be more exact, one side of my face is swollen.

It all started sometime last week. While having lunch, I accidentally bit my inner cheek. And that is how I ended up with a swell. I have tried everything to get rid of it. Took different types of fruits at the same time but to no avail.
Note: the eating process is a killer.

Then when that didn't work, I resorted to taking the panacea......PANADOL. Still no effect. Sigh. It hurts so badly now. Even drinking water hurts. My lips are swollen. My face is swollen. I even have another ulcer hidden behind my upper lip. When will it subside? When will I be well again?

One Wish

If I could have one wish this week, I wish time would slow down and for me to have a bigger and smarter brain. I need more time! Why is it so difficult to piece things together? Why do I take so long to complete something? Why do I have to be a sloth? WHY? Where is the wishing well when you need one.

100th entry - Thermometoe

Finally I've reached my 100th post mark. Phew.

Not too long ago, I discovered that I have a superpower. That does not make me a mutant. I found that I am able to tell temperature without looking at the thermometer. My body is able to indicate temperature. Cool eh? It is not the typical way your body tells you about the temperature. For most people, they will shiver when it is cold and sweat when it is hot. Well, the same happens to me but with an addition.

My toes functions like the thermometer, telling me whether the 'room' temperature is cool, cold, very cold or freezing.How my toes indicate the temperature? Well, it has a colour scheme.

This is how it works. When the 'room' temperature is:

* Cool --> Pink

* Cold --> Purple

* Very Cold --> Blue

* Freezing --> probably frostbite (yet to experience)

Neat eh?

A Piece of A Begger's Mind

This afternoon, I went to pay respect to my grandmother's "memorial plaque" (a.k.a. san chi pai). An old lady entered the premise while everyone was busy paying respect to the memorial plaques. She approached everyone that she sees. After paying my respect, I went to the basin to wash my hands. I stood nearby waiting for my parents whom went to enquire some things. The old lady headed towards my back. She approached me from behind.

Old Lady: Hello...hello...hello... (from soft audible to loud audible)

Me: (Turns around to face her)

Old Lady: Can you give me some money? (Ni ker yi kei wo chien ma?)

Me: I don't have any money with me now.
(Seriously my bag wasn't with me. It was with my mum)

The old lady started scolding me for not giving her money. Then a young couple walked into the premise. The old lady instantly approached them to ask for alms. The young man initially listened to her attentively. After a while, he excused himself from the old lady (whom was obviously very unhappy already). The old lady then approach his female companion for alms. The young lady who was busy sms-ing looked up. At this time, her male companion called out to her and shook his head. She then followed him. Not a very good harvest for this old lady today.

It is not that we are selfish. The thing is this old lady is bold in demanding what she wants for alms. She is one choosy beggar that is not contented with what she is given. She goes around not only in this premise but throughout town, asking people to buy her a sack of rice,etc. My dad once bought her a sack of rice after hearing her tale. After she got her rice, she did not immediately leave for home as she had described in her pitiful tale. Instead she approaches others telling the same tale hoping to get more. It makes one wonder, what does an old lady do with so many sacks of rice? How much does she and her family consume in a day? Why hasn't the social welfare looked into such sad cases (if what she claims is true)?

It's here. The wait is over. After years and months of anticipation and preparation, China will take center stage tonight. The Beijing Olympics that has been the talk of the Chinese community will unveil tonight at 20 00 (8.00 p.m.). Get the champagne ready as 08.08.08 will only happen once in a lifetime.

August 8,2008 8p.m. =

They are ready! Let the games begin!

I have set a new goal for myself. I am going to start a weight gaining program (WGP). The ultimate goal is to gain 3 to 5 kgs by November. I have always had weight issues.

The scenario that I face is:

"I can shed pounds but I can't gain an ounce".

The norm has always been the thins mocking the fat. However times have changed. The reverse is happening now. The fat are in control and they are making fun of the thins. Walruses are now walking up to seals and telling them, "I'm sexy because I have 'curves'(blubber/spare tyres)".

Apparel manufacturers are also more generous with their fabric these days. Presumably prices of cloth has decreased leading to manufacturers making bigger outfits and offering consumers better value for their money. This leaves us (the slender) with no choice but to force ourselves to grow horizontally in order to fit into the clothes available in the market. Otherwise, we would be Adam and Eve of modern times.

Soon slimming centers will run out of business as the lard empire reigns. In order not to be oust by our lardy counterparts, slender people need to pad up on the lard to survive in a lardy, tardy society. Fat rules!

Ms USA falls during Ms Universe pageant

Ms USA 2008

Ms USA 2007

For two consecutive years, Ms USA ends up on their butt. Have the designers not learn the lesson? The dress design has bad feng shui. Ms USA should choose another design for the dress next year. They should probably get a better shoe designer and use rosin before stepping onto stage.

Sex Curse

Archaeologists has uncovered a sex curse at an old city kingdom of Amathus, in Cyprus. The curse inscribed in Greek on a lead tablet has one part which reads: "May your penis hurt when you make love".

What great sense of humour those ancient people have. Pretty sure it was "written" by angry women or gay men who are frustrated by the humiliation that they have to endure with unfaithful partners. If this curse really works, perhaps all females should try it. What do you think ladies?

New Toy

I got a new toy for my birthday. The thing is I don't really know how it functions. It has yet to finish charging. Anyway, it is my first Apple. Uncertain how to get it started. It doesn't come with a software CD, so I was wondering, do I need to download it or something to make the gadget work? I am using a non apple computer, is it possible to load tunes from my computer into it or do I have to load from Apple?

Lappy has cataract and is losing vision in one "eye". Sobs. The condition appeared a couple of months back and has worsen since. It started with one line. Then it multiplied to many more. Then *poof* one block appeared. The cataract is making it difficult for both of us. Difficult for Lappy to show and difficult for me to see. I can't loose Lappy. I still need Lappy. *sob sob*.

Where To?

I have been planning to go on holiday for quite some time. After working so hard I really deserve a nice break. Not too long ago, I made plans to go to Thailand. Not because I have a fetish for Thai men or Thai stuff, it's just that it is cheap.Having heard from the news about the current situation in that country, I'd think I will have to scrape it off the list and choose another destination. I really want to just pack my bags and hop on a plane and be off....somewhere. I thought about going to England. But who's gonna sponsor me? Any airline company willing to give me a ticket? I won't take up much space. I wonder whether those smuggling syndicate could get me there. I won't stay on like most people do. Just want to get out of here for a while. Two weeks would be fine. For the time being I could only stare at the sky and wish that my dream would come true. (Wishing really hard!)

Not My Week

This week is certainly not my week. No matter how hard I try, how much effort I put in, things simply do not turn out the way I want them to. It gets really frustrating when you have strived so hard for things and your efforts simply do not get rewarded. As much as I do not want to, I have to give up. Not achieving what I want is really bothering me. Why does it always rain on me? Anyway, I have another problem to worry about. Time is running short and there is so much to do. I have yet to start attending to them. Sometimes I just wish that there are 48 hours in a day or that time would slow down or stop so that I would have more time on hand.

He's a woman, She's a man

They might look like any other ordinary couple. Actually it is indeed a marriage between a man and a woman. Not in their original form though. Just as the title describes, the groom was formally a woman and the bride formally a man. Mario del Socorro, was formerly Maria, and Diana Guerrero,used to be Jose.The only appalling thing is their age. Socorro is 55. People are just getting stranger these days.

Blog Proposal

People these days are coming up with strange ways to propose to their dearly beloved. There is the good old proposal, the proposal during a baseball match, billboard proposal, proposal through their partner's favourite radio station, proposal through newspaper, proposal through sms, proposal through email, instant messaging, through another medium. Ok I made the last few up but who knows someone might use it and claim it's their own idea! Anyway, this guy, emailed a famous blogger and asked the blogger to post his proposal on the blogger's blog. Erm...If you ask me, I find it rather strange. Proposing through a blog. Someone else blog to be exact. I wonder whether he is really keen to marry the girl or just for the sake of publicity.

Anyway, I came across this while reading the blog

Anything that a guy wishes to convey to his "dearest" should be done in person be it a proposal or a break up. If he is such a coward and dare not say what he wants to in person, he is not worth spending another minute with. Enough said.

Two-legged dog

It looks like the dog is crossing its legs and mimicking the human.

A better picture of how the dog looks like.

This is no optical illusion. This dog is indeed walking on it's two hind legs. Initially when I saw the photo of Faith (the dog's name), it reminded me of my late miniature pinture (not too sure how it's spelled) that likes to walk and jump on its hind legs. However, upon closer look, I found that those hind legs are the only two that it has. Even with disability, it has not hampered Faith's spirit.

One word to describe the way I feel now.......EXHAUSTED. I'm so tired that I can't think or do anything. My body has been aching badly since Friday (from carrying books weighing 3 reams of A4 paper)around the whole day. This is how I'm going to feel until the end of the semester.

Good Friday

I'm late! I'm late! A very important late!

Of all the time to be late, I was a few minutes late to class yesterday.Thou shall never be late for this class. NEVER. NEVER EVER. This is not because there's anything really important about this subject but the fact that the lecturer is really strict. The old school strict. If you get what I mean. Strict like the times your parents or grandparents went to school.

It is the culture of students of my university to not be punctual. In fact it's a culture in every university. Nothing unusual. It is something that all lecturers are accustomed to. Not this one though. He made it crystal clear on the first lesson the code of conduct that he expects: punctuality, total silence (no ringing of cellphones, no sms-ing, no talking, yada,yada,yada), no eating in class, and no other types of beverage except H2O. Well, so far so good. He got what he wanted. Not a soul in class dares to breathe louder than the air cond. Even the notorious of students abide by his rules. No mosquitoes dare to fly in either. Standing ovation for you sir.

However, I bend the rules a wee bit yesterday. I didn't do it on purpose. The thing is I got up an hour and a half before class yesterday. It was my tummy that caused me to be late. Of all times, it just had to *ahem minutes before I was set to leave. Upon reaching, I ran from the parking lot, up the stairs to class, carrying loads.

When I reached the class, I took a peek through the glass opening to see whether my guardian angel has my rear protected. To see whether he has entered the class. Duh! Of course he has. I was late by 8 minutes. Ok, maybe 10. Not like the other two classmates that turn up 40 minutes the other lesson. Anyway, I didn't just barge in nor made a grand entrance. I knocked on the door, opened it, gave him an apologetic nod the quickly find a seat.

Before I entered the class, I thought he was going to chop my head off. But amazingly he didn't say a word. Neither was he sarcastic as usual. What a relief. It is indeed a good Friday. Just wish that it is Good Friday everyday.

Voting Jitters

With the election nearing and myself knowing nuts about politics, I really do not know which party to cast my vote upon. Besides, I haven't been briefed on how to mark the ballot sheet. I do not want to vote for the wrong party and end up making the deserving party lose. As an educator said "You deserve the government you voted for" (* Note: Politics was not discussed in class.This statement fits in with this post).

Both parties, the government and the opposition (if this is how it works), have their own tales to tell. You would never know which to believe but only the better story wins. I never understood classroom politics in school, college and university, which is why I often end up being oppressed by classroom politicians.

However, I have been told that, the former minister that has been behind bars, is manipulating the opposition party to his own benefit. He had caused much distress to the country almost a decade ago. The public would definitely remember the financial crisis that loomed over the country and what a journey it had been to bring the country to its current state. Certainly, we wouldn't want history to repeat itself. Although there are some strong figures in the opposition, is it really worthwhile taking such a risk?

Whom does the public turn to when their daughter/wives/husbands run away from home?
Whom does the public turn to when asking for financial aid?
Whom does the public turn to when their children fail to obtain scholarships and placement in universities?

When it comes to asking for favours, the public will turn to MCA. When it comes to casting their votes, the public decides that the opposition is more deserving. Whatever the decision, don't be goats/penguins. You don't have to jump off a cliff just because your leader/idol/peers does so.

Exercise your right cautiously.

Leap Year

29 February

This day only appear once every four years. It is the day when all the quarters add up to make another day. Hence, there will be 366 days this year instead of the usual 365 1/4 days. Just want to commemorate this day for I do not know whether this blog would still be around four years down the road.

Horny Reptile

I went lingerie shopping today. When I reached home, I did what most people would do after purchasing something. I tried on what I purchased. Then I saw something under the photo frame that is on the wall. It wasn't a piece of the frame. Upon closer look, I saw two black dots. I shooed it away but it did not budge. Then I just ignored it. From the corner of my eye I saw it disappear into the back of the photo frame. A few seconds later, it peeped again. Then it disappeared again. Horny lizard.

Billboard Proposal

Advertisement executive stuns girlfriend with RM54,000 marriage proposal (RM 40000 for billboard & RM 14000 for ring). In case you were wondering how that amount is derived.

Post billboard proposal

Situation 1
* Guy: Honey,can I have the ring back? I need to return it to the sponsor.

Situation 2
* The payment for the proposal is to be borne by both parties. The guy will pay 20k while the girl would have to fork out the other 20k.

Situation 3
* Alternatively, the guy pays 40k. The girl would pay for her own wedding gown,reception, honeymoon and other expenses incurred in the wedding preparation.

Situation 4
* Since Mr Smarty pants spent all the money on the proposal, there will not be any wedding reception whatsoever.

Situation 5
* They would get a copy of the newspaper in which they were the headline, enlarge it, frame it and keep it as a memorabilia or hang it in their living room.

Situation 6
* All the above applies.

What Type of Pizza Am I?


You are down to earth and very approachable. You care about others’ feelings and connect well with those around you. Additionally, life is rarely an unhappy experience for you, as enjoy making adventures and lessons out of all of life’s quirks. California pizza traditionally includes “seasonal ingredients, often organic and local, define California pizza. The crust -- thinner is better -- is merely the vehicle for showcasing the bounty of the season. From stinging nettles to orange bergamot, anything is fair game when it comes to toppings for a California pizza.”

T 200

The Sony Cybershot T 200. Although it is not the latest model in the market, I still love it. The camera is so slim, it's as though it is created for a girl. Dying to have one.

The Sony Cybershot T 200 comes in various colours.

Stamp Collectors

Didn't know that stamp collection is still an 'in' thing nowadays. I thought the trend has shifted to collectibles such as toys, handbags, etc. A couple of days prior to the Chinese New Year, we received some greeting cards from overseas. Nothing unusual since this is a yearly routine. Well, our Christmas cards did somehow arrive many days after Christmas (perhaps the postman thought it was meant for the following year). Anyway, back to the Chinese New Year cards. They did in fact arrive before the festival. However, something was missing on them.

On the first greeting card, the stamp was nowhere visible on the top left hand corner of the envelope. Rather strange given that the envelope was stamped/ computer stamped with the stamp shape around.It was so neatly done you might just think it fell off on the journey. The second card however, the avid stamp collector did a lousy job in saving the stamp for resale. The stamp was torn off the envelope, leaving tear marks which are really visible on pink envelope. Little did I know that cards can be sent without stamps.

Not that it is anything new given the fact that things that are couriered via mail arrived lesser in quantity (halved) as compared to when they were sent. There was once, my mum's friend sent diaries via courier. It was clearly stated 4 diaries. But we only received 2. The point is, do they have the right to open our mail or just take whatever they set eyes on? Even if u are an avid stamp collector, that does not mean you can rip stamps from people's mail.

What Kind of Man Will I Fall For?

You would fall for a Gentleman

You like a man who knows how to treat a lady. Your guy will be suave, sophisticated, and dashingly handsome. He remembers the little things that matter: holding doors open, offering his jacket to you when you're cold, and giving you flowers when you're down. Your Mr. Perfect will respect you, love you, and make you feel beautiful, because you are! So even though you may find yourself attracted to bad guys sometimes, save your heart for your very own Mr. Darcy.

Rear View

Last Friday, after class, I went to photocopy some notes. The shop's outlay was such that the customers would have to stand in the five-foot-way as the counter is barricading the shop. While waiting for my notes to be done, a pair of mother and daughter walked pass. They were wearing tights. As they walked pass, an Indian dude who was walking in the opposite direction turned and stared at them. Not too long later, he turn and walked towards my direction with his hand motioning the movement of their buttocks and his mouth was in an 'O' shape. The thing is, no one was walking with him. Who was he talking to?

Who are you?

Two days ago, something weird happened. I went out for dinner. While walking back to our car after dinner, we pass another eatery. Some of the eatery's tables were set on the five foot way. I was walking without paying much attention to the surrounding. Then out of nowhere, while I walking, suddenly there was a hand in my face. I was kind of stunned. Thought it was a friend of mine, so I turned to look at the owner of the hand. Then that freaky guy grinned and wave at me. My look says "Who are you? I don't know you."
