Holiday with family...

Hello! been neglecting my blog recently. Sorry bout that. Finally in blogging mood once more.

Well, most of my outings are of public knowledge since my other friends like to blog as well, like the one to Genting, Padi, etc2. So not going to touch on those. Will be talking bout my recent trip back to Ipoh with family and all.

I guess not many of you know bout my family background besides that my dad's and Indian and my mom's Chinese. Hmmm, I don't really talk bout my family much I guess. Except a few, most of you don't know that my parents are actually divorced. Not that it's a secret, just that I don't find it that much of a happy topic, and to suddenly come out and say "Hey, my parents are divorced!". (Which will then lead to a weird silence around the group and everyone looking somewhere pretending to contemplate on something else. So true by the way.

Owh, to go on, they actually divorced a couple of months before I entered UTP, so it didn't affect me that much since I'm already all grown up and all. I mean, it's their life, so can't help it when they're doing what they think it best. Owh, they both remarried to different people already, and now I got a little step brother (1 and a half years old) and a little sister (5 months old). Saw them a few times already when I went back to Kuching. Gosh I sure came a long way from SPM.

Owh well, my dad came down with my step mom, my sister, and the baby boy and baby girl. They're getting cuter I must say. And louder... noisier.

Spend a few days in KL first, before going back Ipoh. Nothing much for me left to do in KL, the only new thing I did was going up KL Tower. Paid RM38 for a view I can see from my level in KLCC Twin Towers. Sigh. At least it comes with free entrance to the petting zoo and testing drive at the F1 simulation. Unfortunately I can't go on the pony ride, only people less then 50kg allowed to (another sign I should start going gym next sem in UTP). Btw, in the petting zoo, one person actually put a snake around my neck and took a big parrot and put it on my shoulder. I damn scared sia, thinking the snake will want to go and eat the bird and I'll become the victim stuck in the middle. The snake even went up near my face lo. My bulu roma still stands at the thought of it. Hah, who imagining dirty things now sure you friends with Jin Ming right? See... told you he got bad influence on you all. LOL.

Anyway, after a few days in KL, went to Ipoh back for family gathering and to celebrate Christmas there. Been quite some time since I went back to Ipoh, and seeing that Ipoh Jusco sure brings back some memories.

Went to church on 24th night (finally went to church after 1 year of absence). Unfortunately... since it was a Tamil speaking church, didn't understood a word they said. Even songs in Tamil, so I just pretend that I understood while everyone around me sang and listened to the pastor preaching. Can't help it... all my father's side of family goes to that church, so I accompany them go also la. Pity my sister and step mom also, they're like me, can't understand a word. Lol. At least the crowd was friendly ^^

25th December was spent going around visiting relatives, and eating as if I'm going to war the next day. Sigh. I think I put on 5kg on that day itself. Then 25th night, went clubbing (at least I understood the songs played in there right). Much cheaper than KL clubs also. Realized there's a lot of new clubs behind Tesco as well.

26th went back to KL, and met up with Peow, Jia Haur, Barney and Ah Dong. Watched Sherlock Holmes at Times Square. Straight went from Puduraya to Times Square with my luggage and all to meet them and make it for the movie. Then we all went back to Wangsa Maju and met with Bong and Yoke Mun for yumcha session. After that me, Jia Haur, Peow and Dong went CC, played DoTA until 5am in the morning. After 6 months of abstinence from DoTA, I feed like hell and found myself getting the feeling of DoTA back. NOOOOooooooooooooooooo~

The main point of this enty is this. I will never have children until I have travelled the whole world.
These are the exact words I said to my parents. Don't get me wrong. Love my baby brother and baby sister till death. They're both just too cute. It's just that they can be sooo loud, noisy and annoying at times, especially during meals. Not to mention the cost of bringing extra people and paying for them. Uhhh.... seriously, will travel the whole world before I settle down and have kids. Next trip, New Years? =))


p/s: will upload pics of family later on.

Humans aren't the only ones that commit suicide.

Read this article today. Very very weird...

"Located near the village of Milton in the burgh of Dumbarton, Scotland, there exists a bridge that for some reason or another, has been attracting suicidal dogs since the early 60s. At a rate of around one a month, dogs have been regularly leaping from the bridge; an estimated 600 have been reported jumping.

Even more strange are the circumstances behind these incidents of kamikaze canines. Not only have they been plummeting to their deaths from the bridge, but many have witnessed the dogs actually climbing the parapet wall before making the jump. Even stranger are the reports of dogs surviving their brush with death, only to return to the bridge for a second attempt.

Many theories have arisen on why these doggy suicides occur at such a regular pace, but nothing conclusive has been found. The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has sent representatives to investigate, but they too were stumped by the cause of the strange behavior."

Taken from http://atlasobscura.com/places/overtoun-bridge

Seriously? Jump but didn't die then go and jump again??? The person watching that sitting there enjoying the view of the dogs jumping to death twice is it. GO la and stop the poor dog. Maybe show him a picture of a big bone or something. Dude.... seriously. lol.

Owh well, at least I know now that not only humans suffer from stress and depression. Such is the life of a dog. At least all dogs go to heaven right?

My first Chocolate Fondue! And Chilli's!

Met Vern yesterday afternoon at KLCC (slacking off from work after lunch). Went to Chocz at KLCC. There are a lot of these kinds of cafe at each floor of Suria KLCC, at both ends of the building. Since I never had any fondue before... (Yeah, I know I'm quite late in getting my 1st fondue), we ordered one. Never was a big chocolate fan, but decided to give it a try. And walaa....

Chocolate Fondue at Chocz Kafe.

When it came, I was like "whoaa..." With warm melted chocolate at the top, and fire below, surrounded with strawberries, kiwi, green apples, red apples, bananas, dried prunes and most importantly marshmellows!

Suddenly I remembered why I like to try new things everywhere I go, just to have this expression on my face and thats say "Why haven't I tried this sooner??"

The 1st taste was the best, seriously. Took the long pointy stick and poked that strawberry and dipped it in the melted chocolate. MMMmmmMMMmm.... The chocolate was very rich, and tasty! After 30 minutes... me and Vern both agreed that this portion isn't for two, at least three or four people. Anyway, we were able to almost finish it while chatting and me slacking off until 4.15pm. Bid Vern farewell after that and went back to work...until 5pm.

Owh, at 5pm (which is like 45 minutes after the fondue) me, Duke and Sumathi went Chilli's. Decided to hang out since this Friday is Duke's birthday, and he wont me here. Each had drinks and we ordered Triple Play, which we shared. It was seriously delicious, especially the one that looks like clams, but isnt. Weird. Halfway through, then only I realize I forgot to take a picture, so that will explain the lack of pictures here.

Then we went jalan-jalan, walk around without direction, go to park, chit chat and all. Sigh, the life of aimless and bored people. Now that the word bored came up... thinking of UTP once more. Heck, at least I can save some money there~

Conversation of the day #1

Backdrop of the conversation, on 20th November 2009:

Me, Bong (a guy) and Jia Haur (another guy) walking at KLCC. Bong explaining he might go to Ipoh tonight to celebrate Yuan Wen's birthday. Then he mentioned about Yoke Mun, telling him to ask Jia Haur to drive over to celebrate Yuan Wen's birthday together...

Bong : But right, Yuan Wen is not important in Jia Haur's heart.
Jia Haur: (Looks at Bong) Then who is???
Bong : Me of course~
Jason : . . .(speechless) . . . thinks in heart, "why I got friends like these..."


p/s: I got permission from Bong and Jia Haur to publish this.

'Now' me vs. Future me

This is officially my 50th Post!!! *someone please buy me a cake or something to celebrate this occasion*

Okay, sent an e-mail to myself 3 years from now. Going to be delivered to me on the 1st of November 2012 using http://www.futureme.org/. The contents are of course for me to know and for the rest of you to never know.

Wondering how I am going to be like 3 years from now...

21 Year Old Jason: Hey Jason from the future! How are you doing? Tell me, how's life now?
24 Year Old Jason: Life's great!!! Driving my BMW, working with Shell a big corporation and currently managing a multi billion dollar deal overseas and of course partying all night long everyday. Contemplating of buying my second summer home, either in the Europe or Bali. Damn life is good here. All thanks to you. Make sure you keep working hard okay.
21 Year Old Jason: Whoa.... (speechless. Then continues to work hard finishing up his assignment)


Now that is what I would like to imagine, but my mind couldn't help itself from imagining this instead.

21 Year Old Jason: Hey Jason from the future! How are u doing? Tell me how's life now?
24 Year Old Jason: Sucks.
21 Year Old Jason: -__-" why?
24 Year Old Jason: Graduated one semester late cause failed one stupid subject. Entered Petronas then was kicked out after 2 months because they found out I'm actually incapable of doing anything correctly. AND I'm still being squished in the LRT everyday like in a can of sardine.
21 Year Old Jason: *face turns from (0_0) --> (-__-)" --> (T_T) then goes and and smashes head and face in the mirror.*
24 Year Old Jason: Owh SHIT! Now look what you did to my face. Owh wait, my face is already like that. *goes to the corner of the room, squats down facing the wall and contemplating how best to suicide without feeling pain*
21 Year Old Jason: Pussy! (Then continues to play DoTA).


p/s: I think this will be my last monologue post for some time as I'm scared of getting addicted to talking like this in the future. *Welcome back normal Jason!* Owh ya, before I forget, better send myself another e-mail 3 years down the road with this link for me to re-visit this site when the time comes =)

02 November 2009

Old me vs. 'Now' me

After reading some of my older posts, I've come to terms that my sarcasm level has dropped from here *points way up high* to here *points to the ground*. Sigh~ Anyway, maybe I'm just not as daring to comment about others on a public blog, but heck, I don't mind criticizing myself right.

Found this new website, VERY COOL --> http://www.futureme.org/
You just write an email to yourself, and it will be delivered to your inbox after XXX months/years. It's kinda like talking to your future self. So I was wondering what if I found this website a couple of years earlier. What would I be asking the 'me' now a couple of years back.

15 Year Old Jason: Jason!!! How are you my future me? So where are you studying now? UK? US? Japan?
21 Year Old Jason: Still in Malaysia.
15 Year Old Jason: SHIT! I knew it! Wasted my years. Anyway, on your way to become a Doctor? Or a Lawyer? Or at least an Engineer right?
21 Year Old Jason: No... Doing some IT/Business thinggy..
15 Year Old Jason: What the F***. How the hell did I ended up there. Why the hell did I learn all those Form 5 Add Maths then??? and Physics! And Chemistry! and Bio!!!!
21 Year Old Jason: I learnt those things???
15 Year Old Jason: At least you got some hot chick with you and a nice ride now right? 21 was my favourite number.
21 Year Old Jason: No... and No. But getting on LRT everyday and getting squished like a can of sardine is kinda fun. Right???
15 Year Old Jason: *Runs to the top of the roof and jumps down*
21 Year Old Jason: F***! Now I have no more legs.

Next post --> 'Now' me vs. Future me

Pro and Cons of going to concerts. (went AAR yesterday!)

Just went to All American Rejects concert yesterday... and amid all the pushing, shoving and squishing, I was wondering if it was really worth it. So, I decided to do a Pro vs. Cons of going to concerts and give marks to all the points. Lets see then:

Pro: Can see international artists performing right in front of you, which will be quite a fond memory in the years to come (+12)

Cons: Most probably you'll end up so far behind you can only see their tiny figures and will be watching the big screen they put up at the sides. (-5)

Pro: Can meet up with other friends that you haven't seen in a long time at the concert, sometimes planned and most of the times unplanned (+6)

Cons: Most probably you will be separated during the concert due to the huge crowd if you don't stick together really really close. (-2)

Pro: You get to brag to your friends an say that you've been to XXX concert and all! (+5)

Cons: During the concert, you wil be pushed, shoved, and squished til u wanna punch those bunch of ^*(%@& idiots right down the !#^$%@! they came from. (-10)


Ok, can't think of any other good things, so continue listing down the bad ones.

Cons: Your foot will be stepped on by the crowd, so girls, please wear shoes and not slippers, else it'll be much more painful. (-2)

Cons: You will have to stand for around 5 hours or more during the concert, so make sure you wear something comfortable. p/s: Even saw some girls wearing heel yesterday, geng (-3)

Cons: The concert will start at around 6pm but the main artist/band you wanted to see performing will only be on after like 2-3 hours because of the opening acts. (-5)

Cons: It will be HOT, and you'll get thirsty in there, so make sure to bring some water bottle else you'll seriously in for a long night. (-3)

So, lets calculate the scores:
Pro: 13 + 6 + 5 = 23
Cons: (-5) + (-2) + (-10) + (-2) + (-3) + (-5) = -25

So the verdict? More Cons than Pros... T_______T

EHHH, wait!!! Forgot 1 more point. Dammit!

Pro: Get to see A LOT of pretty and hot girls and, especially if the act is international, got hot Caucasians some more . It's like all the hot girls in KL gathered at one spot that night and you get to appreciate them all. LOL. (...+20)

Ok, final final verdict:
Pro: = 43
Cons: -25

Won hands down, so go and see a concert.
Yeah, I must admit, during the concert it'll get a lil stuffy, hot, pushy, and crowded, but at the end of the day, you'll usually remember it for the good things (Reminds self to get pictures from Renae).


On another totally random note, just bought the new Gatsby, blue colored one. For the "Cool wet look" as it says on the label. Liked this much more than the purple one I was using. Highly recommended for people with long hair and wanna keep the wet look all day long. Really works. And no, I don't get paid for this.

Some random thoughts on food

I still remember the day I came to UTP, and the first few times I had to pay for my own food. Even RM3.50 for lunch seems a little pricey to me. Over the years, food has turned from something to keep me alive to something of enjoyment and indulgence. I'm kinda lucky I guess since I can eat anything, being a Christian. So all the more variety for me to choose from =)

Fast forward to today. Doing my intern in KLCC made me realize how cheap food outside really is. Paying a minimum of RM6 for your lunch (and this does not include drinks by the way) does make you appreciate the more affordable ones outside.

Looking at my working colleagues going to Secret Recipe, Chilli's, Roma's Pizza or some other fancy place to have their lunch makes me wonder if I will be like them one day. Even now I do go to those places, but not that often like they do.

Owh well, just as random thought as I remembered all the places I've been to for meals, and the ones I have yet to go to. Changing from being a person who "Eats to live" to "Lives to eat" does have it's costs, monetary wise especially, and getting a tummy from all those delicious food as well. Can't say I didn't enjoy all those food though, and the times when we all sat and chit chat during the meals. Some good old fashion quality time there.

Anyways, having a headache now. I'm guessing from eating too full during lunch just now. I wonder if that is even possible. Gonna take my nap now. Hopefully not a long one, else I'l be up all night later. Ciao~

Langkawi Trip

OK~ Finally getting the time to sit down and blog about the trip to Langkawi.

Was hoping more people would come, but in the end only 4 went, (me, Jia Haur, Peow, and Aaron). Well, I guess the timing wasn't good or I just suck at planning. Maybe both =) Anyway, I'll never plan for holidays again, defeats the purpose of relaxing. Stress sia... now I know. heh.

I wont go into detail of all the activities or things we did, since I'm lazy. Will just highlight a few things.

The place we stay is called Malibest. Can go Google it up if you all got nothing better to do. It's right beside the Cenang beach, which is damn pretty.

Comfortable bed... too comfortable wit the aircond until sleep too much T_T


Awesome beach right?

Since it is just beside the beach, can go and play at the beach anytime, and of course see the beautiful sunset. Here's one of the picture I took just after the sunset.


I also woke up early on the last day, at dawn, just to go and see the sunrise while the other three slept. Unfortunately since the sun sets at this side of the beach, it definitely wont rise at the same side -_-"
But still, it was nice to see the sky turning from pitch black to light blue and orange slowly. Even saw fishermen using nets at the beach, catching lots of fishes. Walking on the beach on the morning is refreshing~ Although it gets pretty chilly at times!

We also went to Tasik Dayang Bunting. Legend has it that if u can't get pregnant, bath in this lake and it will enable you to get pregnant. How true it is, I'm not sure. Maybe some of you can go test it out for us. Owh, only applicable for ladies by the way... so guys, sorry, but no can do. Still....since the four of us are scared of testing out this myth ourselves and whether it works on guys or not, we decided to go paddling only, instead of swimming in it. Later get baby bump sure freak out even though it is only fat. lol.

Happy couple~

After the paddling, we let some fishes bite our legs at the Tasik there as well. VERY GELI!!! And the fish was SLIMY!!! Well I'm ticklish, so I can't help it. After that we went to see the Eagle Feeding. Couldn't take any clear pictures though. Then there was Pulau Beras Basah. Went there and took a lot of pictures of pretty girls ourselves. Camwhored a lot. Just like the one below.

The beautiful girls boy

Also, decided to go and explore Langkawi on our own, thus rented a car. Of course, since it is manual, I became the designated driver. Used this car to go shopping and find food in town.

The Iswara that we rented


We wanted to go up using the cable car as well, but after reaching there early in the morning and waiting for like and hour, the counter person told us that the platform is closed because it was too cloudy up there. So, we decided not to go. Instead, played around with the deers, rabbits and monkeys.

Aaron thinking in his head "How shall we cook you today? Black pepper or with ginger?"

Aaron thinking in his head "How shall we cook you today? Stew or braised?"

Ok, just kidding. Aaron don't eat these cute animals....I think. I do. At least eaten deer before la.Rabbit never (yet). Although that thought never occured to me when I was feeding the deer and rabbit. Damn geli eh when the deers lick and eat the food from your hand. It was a first for me though, so consider worth it driving all the way there.


Our last stop was at Telaga Tujuh waterfall. VERY BEAUTIFUL! Seriously. One of the nicer pictures below.


Not forgetting the happy shoppers who got great discounts and prices on their Nike jacket and shoes. Seriously didn't know Nike and Adidas there cheaper as well. Another reason to go Langkawi.



Ok, this was just some of it. Pictures of food, the camwhore pictures, driving around Langkawi, shopping for chocolates, other activities and all can be seen at my Facebook. Lazy to upload them all over again. Of course, this was not all that we did, but then to go into detail would be too much of a hard work for me. I prefer to let the pictures do the talking. So see the pictures yourself over HERE!

15 October 2009

Goodbye~

Off to Langkawi~

Hopefully will have a nice time there. See you all on Monday I guess.

A story of a girl who wanted to blog...

This is a story, a real story, of a girl wanted to blog.

So she created her blog. She wrote her 1st post and published it. The next day she wanted to visit her blog again... BUT SHE FORGET HER URL... and even her password for blogger.

She typed in the keywords to her post and Googled it, to no avail. So she re-typed one whole paragraph of her post in the search box but still couldn't locate back her blog.

So she created a new blog with a new URL.

This is the story of a girl. I am not going to say who this girl is. But she is a girl, my coursemate, and Chinese. She is also not Ng Li Li. Those of you who wants to visit her blog, this is her new url --> www.herecomesmeifang.blogspot.com. If you still do not know who this girl is, you can all go kill yourself.

Good day.

The encounter. I wish this was just a dream.

It was 11.50pm yesterday night. I was tired and sleepy, slowly getting ready for bed, shutting down my laptop. As the screen of my laptop goes off, I looked into the mirror of my dressing table, which happens to be where my laptop rests on. And there he was, standing beside the window, waiting for me to realize his presence. My nemesis, my mortal enemy.

I quickly turned around and faced him. His eyes becoming more sharp and intense now that he knows that I am aware of his presence. My heart raced, making me aware of each slight movement he made, every twitch, every movement of muscle which even he might not have realized. I have always passed by him and his friends back in UTP, but I didn't know he would follow me all the way back here. And here I am, faced to faced with him again after so long.

I scouted the area in search of his friends, but it seems he came alone. A slight relief came about knowing the fact that I will only need to deal with him and him alone. My mind raced, thinking of any objects that I could use as weapons if it comes down to it. The best I could do, and did, was to rush out of my room without taking my eyes of him from my back. He didn't follow me. I grabbed a long stick, with the intent of facing him. It was the best I could find in such a short amount of time. I slowly walked back.... and there he was, in the exact same position I first saw him moments ago. He became more wary of me, slowly backing up a little bit. I know what I have in my hand was just for show and to scare him off, hopefully without any tragedy occurring before that. After a few seconds of us staring at each other, which felt like a lifetime for me, he become braver. I know he could smell fear in me, with me dripping in sweat now. He waited for me to make the first move, but I know I dared not. I even thought of going in the hallway and calling for help, but I knew people would just brush me off, thinking that I was making some joke.

It was then that I recalled what I used to do, way back when I was a little child, whenever I see him. Yes, he has been with me a long time....longer than I wished.

I backed up once more, leaving the stick on floor. Indicating to him I do not want any confrontation this time around. I ran out from my place, running towards the elevator. I keep looking back anticipating for him to follow me, but no signs of him were present outside of my room. As soon as the doors of the elevator opened, I quickly stepped in, feeling more secure in that confined place. However weird that may sound.

I went to the shop which was as the ground floor of my condo. Relief poured in when I was another human, whichever country they may be from (okay, sorry for the mean joke). It search for that item which I used back at Kuching, praying that it was sold there as well. The moment I laid eyes on it, I know I was saved. I took it in my hands and paid the cashier, never letting go of it. I was blinded with the feeling of security. But I know, it was far from over. I went back up, hoping to encounter him for the last time, for tonight at least.

I opened the door of my room, hoping he went away without leaving any trace that he was there in the first place. He was still there. The slight creek from the door made him aware of me once more. He was waiting for me. It seems he got comfortable in my room, pacing around waiting for me to return. I have always wondered if he could read my thoughts. Never have I had this feeling with anyone else.

The moment he realized that I was holding it, he stepped back. As fearful as I was of him, he was even more scared of me now. My heart raced at the thought of doing what I was going to do. I took and step forward, and he took one back. Another step forward...and he backed up a few more. I raised it near to him before he could escape, and showered him with it. He knew it was too late for him, but he tried to run, to no avail. I will not let him go away this time, not like all the times back in my university. He came all the way to find me, and I knew it had to stop here.

The final few seconds of him life, watching him struggling, never brought any pain to me. As terrible as it may sound, he has been in my life longer than I like. But I know, he will be back. He never really dies. That old friend of mine, that will always haunt me. That dead cockroach.

My nemesis, my mortal enemy.



But now that I have it once more, I do not need to be afraid, not at least as afraid as I was. All thanks to you.....

Ridsect Cockroach Killer!!!


After 5 months then only see it again. Hoping it will be another 5 months before I see it once more. Damn I better close my windows next time. 11th floor also can come up!


p/s: will blog about Jia Haur's bday when I get the pictures.

Pasar Malam at Sri Rampai

Had a great weekend last week, had some catch up and laugh with some friends who came back for Raya break. Had one at Midvalley which Fang Xuan blogged about here (which was before I went back to Kuching) and another one after I came back, in which Hooi Yee blogged about it here and here. Wouldn't want to repeat the same story twice, so just go there to read about it. Barney also came a couple of times, but unfortunately didn't take any pictures since I don't have any cam. Seems Barney is starting to like BRJ's nasi lemak ayam already.

Anyway, haven't gone to the Pasar Malam in Sri Rampai in a while already. The first and last time we went there was around 3-4 months ago when Hooi Yee introduced us all there.

Unfortunately didn't took picture of the environment there, as there were too many people all crushing each other trying to squeeze through. Well. maybe not that crowded, but you get the picture.

Anyway, had fun looking at all the food available. Tempted to buy them all, but surely can't finish it later. Seriously got a lot of things and FOOD there. Well, these are some that we (me, Jia Haur and Bong) bought:


Jia Haur's Cheese Cake and Pandan Cake


My own Mango, Blueberry and Chocolate Cheese cake.
Planning to eat it slowly tomorrow and during the weekend =)


Erm, let me see if I remember this. Taiwan Popiah Vege Seaweed Salad Roll?
Can't really remember, but it's something like that. Really nice.


Mat Tou Yau. Sweet but refreshing.


Bong's fried popiah and steamed dumpling


My favourite Takoyaki. Octopus inside.


After walking around buying food, found a place to eat and order more food from that stall. All in all, a very filling dinner again. Got a few more food which I didn't took picture though. Even Jia Haur and Bong both tapao their food since even they cannot finish it all.

FULL~ And I ask myself why can't I lose weight....

KL --> Kuching --> KL

Back to Kuching after 9 months away. Remembered the serenity that this place gives me, and how much I missed this feeling. Much more peaceful compared to the chaos in KL.

Roll back a few days. Saturday night was spent with some friends from UTP who came down to KL. Missed my friends in UTP a lot, after such a long time not seeing them. Thats the worse part about intern, missing your friends who are far away. Most of them will go intern after I'm back to UTP, since they are engineering, so will not be meeting them again for some time.

Met up at Midvalley and watched "Where Got Ghost", the Singaporean movie. Peow recommended to me. Even though really funny, didn't expect it to be scary (at certain parts) as well. Played the ever famous 'I never...' during lunch and of course the card game which I personally call 'King'. Dont know what others call it though. We all had some good laugh and fun, and maybe some people were just unlucky to have saliva all over them....

Back over in Kuching, since I only have 5 days here, decided to spend more time with my family. Went and watched 'the Ugly Truth' yesterday with Xiang Qing, Herman and Fitri. Quite true, how most girls have their so called 'checklist' and guys who are mostly simple and look for looks only. Please note the bolded words as I would not like to offend some who thinks that they are above the rest. That would include me as well.

Might be going around visiting tomorrow, so we'll see how things goes. I'm just glad to be back here after so long. Wished my holidays were longer. Not enough time to do all that I wanted to, but I guess I know what is important to me now, when thrown into a situation with such limited time. Going to go back this Friday afternoon, which is less than 36 hours away.

Might be meeting some of you all this Sunday when I'm back in KL, hopefully. So wish it works out and were able catch up on things missed. For the rest who are in KL, do join in. Take care and see you all soon, hopefully before we graduate =)

Pulau Ketam Trip

Went Pulau Ketam with my Jia Haur and Bong last weekend (5-6 September). It was another random trip I guess. Drove all the way to Port Klang and took a 50-minute ferry ride there.

First time driving long distance in Peninsular


Reached Pulau Ketam after the ferry ride

Wasn't exactly what I expected. I was kind of expecting the island to have beaches and all. However it was actually a fishing village. It was really an experience for me, since this is my first time in such a place. It's seriously a village and is like a Malaysian kampung version of Venice. The only way to travel is by bicycle and it seems everyone has one. It's not that big a place actually, so you can walk if you choose to.

The pathway or roads are quite narrow actually, and its all on stilts, so all around you is seawater. Better walk carefully there, don't want to fall off and plunge yourself into the sea.

Checked into our rooms and rented bicycles to ride around town. Been a long time since I rode a bicycle. Almost seems scary as the roads were narrow and both sides of the road were sea water below. Enjoyed it though (^-^)

During the night....

Great seafood for dinner, especially the crab and fish (cheap also!).

After dinner went cycling around town at night, even went to see the school there. Then went to the jetty and hang out there. See kids hanging around there mostly.

Jia Haur, Bong and me

Next morning...we woke up to catch the sunrise at the jetty. It seems that it was raining the while night while we were asleep, and in the morning the road was flooded. A little mistake would get you swept into the sea. Decided to go back to sleep (YES!). Reminds me of that one episode of Family Outing where the family members got back to sleep after waking up to a heavy rain and they couldn't perform their morning chores. Lol.

The flooded road and seawater all over it


'O-chien' for breakfast (if that is how you spell it)


Taking pictures before leaving


One of our last picture in Pulau Ketam



Owh ya, stopped for Bak Kut Teh at Klang on the way back (Nice!)


p/s: The whole trip only cost us around RM100 each, inclusive of everything. Freakin' cheap considering the food that we ate =)

Will the REAL Jason Anderson Please Stand Up!!!


I got an E-mail from Twitter a couple of days ago, with the title:

"Jason Anderson is now following you on Twitter"

I noticed something was strange...then I realised....I'M JASON ANDERSON!

So I went to Twitter and checked. It seems another Jason Anderson from God knows where decided to add all the Jason Anderson's he could find. There's the guy's profile.

Are you Jason Anderson? If so please stand up. Seriously dude, stand.


Well at first he only followed around 15 Jason Anderson's if I'm not mistaken, but within a day he managed to increase the number to 174. Unfortunately I cant say much about the number of people interested based on his followers. I'm not one myself (yet).

And so all the Jason Anderson's started chatting with each other...

We even said Good Night to each other~

If he is able to increase the number of Followers by 100% a day, as in 10 Jason Anderson's for the 1st day, 20 for the 2nd, 40 on 3rd and so on, by the 30th day, there will be 5,368,709,120 Jason Anderson's in his list! (Correct me if I'm mistaken, haven't done maths in some time.) We can even make a society or clan, spreading our teachings of Jason Andersons' worldwide!

Okay, maybe that won't happen. But still, never occurred to me that someone would actually do this. I'm not sure, maybe there are other Ng's or Ahmad's or John's doing the same, which the rest of us who isn't in their society, know about it.

Anyways, Good luck to that Jason Anderson and I'll most probably follow you after this just for the fun of it (and maybe be accepted in that society of ours as well).

Of Decisions in Life. Tribute to Leo Velski Julian


To begin this post, would just like to inform that no, I'm not going blog bout my Merdeka celebration, as got nothing much to blog about.

Instead, I read something that I would like to share with all.


A group of children were playing near two railway tracks, one still in use while the other disused.
Only one child played on the disused track, the rest on the operational track.

The train is coming, and you are just beside the track interchange.
You can make the train change its course to the disused track and save most of the kids.
However, that would also mean the lone child playing by the disused track would be sacrificed.
Or would you rather let the train go its way?



Let's take a pause to think what kind of decision we could make................


Most people might choose to divert the course of the train, and sacrifice only one child.
You might think the same way, I guess.
Exactly, to save most of the children at the expense of only one child was rational decision most people would make, morally and emotionally.
But, have you ever thought that the child choosing to play on the disused track had in fact made the right decision to play at a safe place?

Nevertheless, he had to be sacrificed because of his ignorant friends who chose to play where the danger was.
This kind of dilemma happens around us everyday.
In the office, community, in politics and especially in a democratic society, the minority is often sacrificed for the interest of the majority, no matter how foolish or ignorant the majority are, and how farsighted and knowledgeable the minority are.
The child who chose not to play with the rest on the operational track was sidelined.
And in the case he was sacrificed, no one would shed a tear for him.


The great critic Leo Velski Julian who told the story said he would not try to change the course of the train because he believed that the kids playing on the operational track should have known very well that track was still in use, and that they should have run away if they heard the train's sirens...
If the train was diverted, that lone child would definitely die because he never thought the train could come over to that track!
Moreover, that track was not in use probably because it was not safe.
If the train was diverted to the track, we could put the lives of all passengers on board at stake!
And in your attempt to save a few kids by sacrificing one child, you might end up sacrificing hundreds of people to save these few kids.

While we are all aware that life is full of tough decisions that need to be made, we may not realize that hasty decisions may not always be the right one.

'Remember that what's right isn't always popular... and what's popular isn't always right.'

Everybody makes mistakes; that's why they put erasers on pencils.


p/s: will continue blogging bout my life when something interesting happens.

So I'm not Patriotic. So what?

Malaysia’s Independence Day is coming again, 31st August.

Not really feeling anything on Independence Day this year, or any other previous Independence Days I had. For me it is just another holiday and excuse for me to have some fun.

I have never had that feeling of patriotism instilled in me. But bear this in mind, I do LOVE my country, I just don’t like how it is currently run. So when the same government has been ruling the country ever since its independence until now, the government becomes synonymous with the country. For a crude and shallow thinking person like me that is.

1Malaysia is a nice catch phrase, but how far will it go? Since I’m a pessimistic person when it comes to the future of my country, which the environment around me has turned me into, I believe that catch phrase will always be a what it is, a catch phrase. Then again I am being pessimistic.

After SPM my view of Malaysia changed drastically. To see good students not getting what they deserve just because the color of their skin just pisses me off. How dare the government say that we are unpatriotic when we migrate to another country when they did not treat us fairly in the first place. You reap what u sow, bastards.

After coming to UTP, the boundary that separates us just keeps getting bigger. Most of my friends are now Chinese and Indians.

I have a lot Malay friends that I still hold close to me, but the government keeps saying things that heightens and reminds us of the differences between us to gain the majority of Malay votes and comes up with 1Malaysia to gain the rest of the votes from Non-Malays.

After 52 years or unfair treatment, and still the equity of Malays are not increasing MAYBE, just MAYBE, something is wrong somewhere.

Let me propose something here. Why don’t we help all that are unfortunate regardless of their race. Let’s give help to those to deserve it regardless of the color of their skin, instead of allocating based on quota. If indeed there are more Malays that are underprivileged, then there will be more of them that will get the help that they deserve. Compare it to the current system that allocates more help to Malays and ending up helping those rich Malays that does not deserve it.

In Malaysia, Indonesians can easily get Bumiputera status. Some Muslim friends of mine whose parents are not Malaysians but are Muslims easily got Bumiputera status. But the Chinese and Indians who have been in this country for over 50 years are still considered immigrants. Why?

Maybe I’m just not patriotic enough to begin with. Maybe we should just be stay and be loyal to the country that does not treat us fair and signifies us as ‘immigrants’ even after 52 years of independence.

After 52 years of independence and we’re still being considered as immigrants, how can I rejoice in claiming to be a Malaysian. But then again, that’s just me.

You know your mother wants a grandchild when she gives you a shirt like this...

Was having dinner at KFC last Saturday when I realized that my friend was wearing this shirt...with kiwi bird pictures on it.


Can you name me all the positions?


Didn't realize what the actions of the kiwi birds are until I looked closely.

It seems my friend didn't realize that the kiwi birds on his shirt were actually performing some show.
Even more troubling was that the shirt was given to him by his MOTHER!

His mother is seriously implying something here. Either that or she didn't realize it as well when she bought it for him.

Seriously though, this is a very nice way to tell your son something, doesn't it? LOL. Hope my mother doesn't give me one of these shirts -__-"

But then again, who know's, your son might even get laid because of this shirt =)

MTV World Stage! AWESOME!

THANK YOU MTV for the 4 free passes to MTVWS! Damn it was fun!

Chronological events for the day~
Met up with Amanda for lunch at KLCC first. Almost got free lunch for us as Nandos, when the paid bill with the change came but neither of us paid. We were hoping that some kind Samaritan paid for us, but it just seemed that they gave the bill and change at the wrong table. Maybe we should have just kept quiet...

Anyways, went to Sunway after that. She got Mosh Pit tickets, so went in earlier.


Met up with Jin Ming and Peow afterwards.

The Roomates


Then came Jean, while eating at Pancake House

Met up with Suraya and Sebrina for a few minutes before entering as well.

Then the kick-off begins! (First and foremost, must thank Jin Ming for bringing his cam and congratulations on sneaking it in into the concert.)

Boys Like Girls started things of beautifully. Pumped us up.


Then came Raygun.


And Pixie Lott.


Hoobastank!!! Great performance from them~
Personally, I felt it was the best performance throughout the night.




Lastly, All American Rejects brought the house down. Definitely! (Waiting for AAR pictures from Jean. Jin Ming's cam went flat after Hoobastank)


Was too thirsty by the time AAR finished. Had to leave with half of the crowd. Sorry Estranged and Kasabian T_T"

So Peow and Jin Ming ended up sleeping over at my place that night....

Overall, seriously enjoyed! Reminds me of Rainforest World Music Festival.



Some of the pictures we took during the concert =)

Jin Ming = Superman (among many other identities)



here comes Jean => Little Miss Late


Peow, me, and Jean



Resting during the break

Just wanted to say this...

I LOVE MY JOB!

RanDoM 2 + PC Fair

It's 3am in the morning and I can't sleep. I realized my blogging mood comes to me during these kind of hours. Seriously though, life's been dull. Nothing much to blog about these days.

Wasn't able to go Redang and get my scuba license with Jin Ming, Peow, Aaron and Philip due to the quarantine imposed on UTP, thus shortening the Raya break. Since I'm interning, and it's a busy period here, couldn't get holiday the holiday I needed. Sad =( Owh well, will go next time with some other people next time then. At least can get their input on how it will be like and be more prepared when I'm going (if I ever get the chance that is).

Work is tiring, but interesting. At least on my part. The only bad side to it is that I have to get up around 6.15am every morning. But once I get over that part, the rest is easy. Having a hot colleague during this audit period would help a lot in getting me to wake up in the morning, but you can't ask for everything right. =P

Went to PC Fair last Friday during the 2 hours lunch break. Luckily is in KLCC, dont need to walk so far.

Jia Haur's got his Celcom broadband already (during PC Fair), so for those of you who missed him, he'll start using his broadband this Monday.

Finally got myself another pendrive as well at PC Fair. 4gb for RM29. Hope I got it at a good price. Simply chose one and bought it. Quite lazy to look around as there were too many people in there.

The people dressed up in cute outfits and game characters were quite a sight also. @.@ Didn't get to take pictures of them as I will only be using my hp cam while others were using their DSLR to take their pictures. Malu nyer... Better keep my phone inside and google the pictures taken using the DSLR later.

Owh ya, Bong will be moving to Wangsa Maju area as well. As least that was what he said. "No man is and island" like they say. Wish him all the best in finding a place here, since he rented out his room ady -_-"

That all the updates for now. Sorry for the random topics, if I do find an interesting topic, wil surely keep it in mind for the next post.

RanDoM

Wow, its been a long time since I updated my blog. Been quite busy with work these days unfortunately.

Just wanted to share some pictures that was emailed to me by a friend. Chosen a few of my favourites.

These are some of his 3D chalk works on the sidewalk. Wish I could draw like this.

Very talented artist. Enjoy =)
