It was high time for me to change my tires both funding and time was a factor with so many things taking place. Also not like the tyre shops are open after 7pm? I wonder If I would mane a ton of money, if I open a tyre shop after working hours. Having known how babysiew had the tyre thingy in her not so recent blog, I made the effort to go and change it before any more serious repercussion could have taken place.

This was its current condition of wear and tear. Horrible!!! Vadai should have been more responsible

The new Tyres on!!!

So Inconjunction with that here is a brief extract on tyre ( my one call chamber wear woh!!)

Illustrations And Explanation For Tyre Wear

Under Inflation Under Inflation

Under-inflation has caused this tyre to wear on the outer edges of the tread, leaving the central tread area far less worn. The inner-liner can also degrade.

Over Inflation Over Inflation

Over-inflation has resulted in the central tread area being forced into contact with the road causing rapid or crown wear.

Mis-Alignment Mis-Alignment

A typical example of the wear pattern caused by front wheel misalignment, (Toe-in or toe-out). The edge of the tread is "feathered" and worn progressively from one side.

Camber Wear Camber Wear

Excessive wheel camber has caused sloping wear on the outer edge of the tread on one shoulder of this tyre.

Illegal Wear Illegal Wear

This tyre has been used well after reaching the legal minimum pattern depth of 1.6mm across the central ¾ of the tread, going around the complete circumference of the tyre.

End Of Life End Of Life

This tyre has reached the legal minimum pattern depth of 1.6mm.

Emergency Braking Emergency Braking

An emergency braking manoeuvre with this tyre has caused the tyre to rapidly wear through the complete casing causing the tyre to deflate.

Impact Damage Impact Damage

This is damage caused by an impact to the sidewall. The bulge or "egg" indicates localised casing damage.

World Cup - Quarterfinals

Firstly, I am one of those who want to give Puyol(Spain) a slap at the back of the head for gifting an unnecessary freekick that gave France the lead.

Having said that, Commie who was dancing to a Ghana Win, Dude you suck!!! Get the ball across the goal line.

Now the quarter finals already

Germany vs Argentina - Damm good one, syok!!! must sit mamak and watch
Italy vs Ukrain - All due respect toe Ukriain, I pass on watching this
England vs Portugal - I watch this is nobody buys me beer, why England (who I admire on paper) have never lived up to their potential and Portugal already lost key players as Jen said .......(forget what Jen said)
Brazil vs France - Hell I aint missing this even for sex, this is going to be a hubba hubba match, the strength of the Brazalian defence will be sorely tested

My mouthwatering ties will be Germany vs Argentina and Brazil vs France

World Cup-Calculating sixth World Cup win for Brazil

Off the NST

THEORIES, predictions and prop- hecies abound about which team will be crowned champion this World Cup.

Quoting soothsayers and other authoritative sources, many feel that it is Europe’s turn to take the title. Some say there is a conspiracy to ensure that defending champions Brazil are denied the cup for the sixth time.

But of the many crystal-gazing guesses making their rounds, I find this one I received via email from a dear friend the other day interesting:

• Brazil won in 1994 and before that it won in 1970: 1970 + 1994 = 3964

• Argentina won its last World Cup in 1986 and before that in 1978: 1978 + 1986 = 3964

• Germany won its last World Cup in 1990 and before that in 1974: 1974 + 1990 = 3964

• In 2002 and 1962, Brazil won the Championships: 1962 + 2002 = 3964

• So it is logical to predict what will happen this year — all that is needed is to look for another year that would verify the formula: 3964-2006 = 1958.

Brazil were the champions in 1958, so we can conclude that Brazil will win this year.

But first, the indomitable South Americans will have to overcome a spirited Ghana tonight.

Futsal - I has a bad game, but I'll be back

Firstly, I admit I did not play well last night despite giving 110%. I played with my heart but there was a dip in my performance.

Being away previous week coz of the exhibition its been a good solid 2 weeks since I exercised, maybe it was the fatigue from the exhibition, to her fact I locked my self inot a stupid argument with a commenter in my blog, or that I took an early dinner. Watever the excuse maybe I had a poor performance and add on to that we had a poorer team, so my passed were not perfect, the ball control not that and many times simple task of brining the ball along I would stumble. This was never going to be an easy evening!!!

Pumped my self, despite being the older team and 3 guys who were not that mobile we did give a good account, at time my keeper was more contend to playing handball and that bugger can sure throw the ball, the prob is, his reach is was over the court length.

We were playing against the team spearheaded by a trio of guys <30.>

My idea when I play the ball move into the space, heck its ain’t a frigging big court, Juz move 4 steps ur in space and you get an inch perfect pass. Was commenting to Jen bout my passing, coz 9/10 if you move into space I can guarantee the ball will come into your feet. Even when I was keeper I could play the game into the open space and 2 “going-to-the-ground” saves makes you feel good and curse the carpet.

I know I can push harder and fight harder. Improving workrate and mental strength. Damm right next week you gonna read a better blog on this subject

Huge Asteroid to Fly Past Earth July 3

An asteroid possibly as large as a half-mile or more in diameter is rapidly approaching the Earth. There is no need for concern, for no collision is in the offing, but the space rock will make an exceptionally close approach to our planet early on Monday, July 3, passing just beyond the Moon's average distance from Earth.

And skywatchers with good telescopes and some experience just might be able to get a glimpse of this cosmic rock as it streaks rapidly past our planet in the wee hours Monday. The closest approach occurs late Sunday for U.S. West Coast skywatchers.

Asteroid 2004 XP14 is a member of a class of asteroids known as Apollo, which have Earth-crossing orbits. The name comes from 1862 Apollo, the first asteroid of this group to be discovered. There are now 1,989 known Apollos.

The size of 2004 XP 14 is not precisely known. But based on its brightness, the diameter is believed to be somewhere in the range of 1,345 to 3,018-feet (410 to 920 meters). That's between a quarter mile and just over a half-mile wide.

In the arms of Jnr Vadai

ICA the aftermath, how does one recover!!!

So what does one do after the exhibition, run into the arms of a loved one of course, what I so, no party no drinks with frens juz collaspe in bed, wake up the next day drive all the way down into Jnr Vadai's arms, since he was in yoga class I met him there and he jumped into my arms. Spent time with him at home then took him to pizza hut and slept with him. I had to come back to KL for a marvelous dinner and drinks with our newest principal and surprisingly when I explained to Jnr Vadai the situation he understood perfectly, next week me and him also got a date to roda ronda.

Jnr Vdai was the tonic I needed and it was nice spending Sat with him. At pizza hut he dived into his favorite mushroom soup, chicken wing and pizza, he was so excited and enjoyed every morsel and even tapau extra for him.

I brought him come cookies a fren sent and free gifts from the exhibition, like stress balls in the shape of a bulb, he loved it ....

While having lunch we talked about school, family, work, the movies he watched, his gfren, thing on his mind, and kids that age impress you with their depth and he was no exceptional.

Its good fun. We came back played a little while then slept the afternoon. In the evening we woke up together and he helped me pack and sent me off.

ICA it came, it conqured and it ended

Like the World Cup, the exhibition came with much buildup, stress, excitment and fatigue, it arrived, it has its share of mix bowl of emotin and it ended.

Looking back at the build up to it and the 4 days of it, Ican say despite all blogged I throughly enjoyed and it was a success, Our booth was one of the most active, we had VIP many visitors. The web page was a success and the launch of the society also was well covered. Most of the staff there were having their lunches after 2pm and yours truly has his only after his team dah makan and that about 4pm.

Day 1
It did not start, like the flod gates of the three dams as people were rolling in, along the side lines there were a major booboo by one principal as they has both us and another exhibitor displaying their products. I was fuming as it makes people coming to our booth question why got 2 distributor when we are giving prominance to this principal.

Day 2
More visitors to the booth and to the technical presentation we hosted, lots of queries and the Simmens girls dressed liks sluts lol. I dun mind hiring women as ushers and handin out brochures but having them dressed as one lady commented "motor racing sluts" it created a lot of bad publicity. The good thing from it is my booth benefited, guy drooling to the max watched form a distance, and that distance equaled to where my booth was located. Round them up boys!!!! As a treat to the team Restoran Seri Melayu

Day 3
The best day so far, so many visitors, follow up enquiries, the dual distributor issue already trashed out and smooth sailing, we were on a high and I was flying

Day 4
Being Friday has its drawbacks as during the prayer time it has it lull. The launch of the soceity, took front page news and the support by the VIP, Senior Technical people form the big oil companies was impressive. Well done vadai!!

Although I missed the Code Black party, it did not matter as we had so much fun and to tired to party. The back room staff supported well and I pampered my self to a nice yummy cheese cake.

Next project hmmm waiting for my boss to call me into his room hahahaha

Some pic from are booth to growth in stages

An interesting email - Friendship

Darling Babysiew sent me this.
I extracted parts of the chain email for the reading pleasure of all. Tell me what you think

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person. When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.!

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant .

Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.You decide & Let me know! I will wait?.....................?

T- 1 day!!!

We are at 40% complete

Today morning a review meeting of what we acheived yesterday and the workload to be distributed today morning will be done shortly. I cam very early inot the office to get the ground work done. I guess being the chief of the exhibition, its a requirement.

I like the challange, I like the rush, I like the drive and I hate failing. I work hard to deliver and I reward my team.

Tomorrow we start and we have a few VIP visiting out booth lalalalala

Houston - we do nto have a prob, vadai is here

Father's Day

The driving force behind the establishment of the celebration of Father's Day was Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd, born in Creston, Washington. Her father, the Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, as a single parent raised his six children in Spokane, Washington. She was inspired by Anna Jarvis's efforts to establish Mother's Day. Although she initially suggested June 5, the anniversary of her father's death, she did not provide the organizers with enough time to make arrangements, and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday of June. The first Father's Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, in Spokane.

Jnr Vadai made me promise 2 him that I come back, and I will go back while juggling the exhibition and the work load. Just for him

So why Fathers's Day?The moral of this story: Much as mom's work is often unnoticed and underappreciated, dad's role apparently slides by even lower on our radar screen. He may be out of the house a lot, but remember the bedtimes stories he would read to you when he got home, the games of chess and catch, those movies and trips.........

So here's an idea for this Father's Day; don't just tell your dad that you appreciate him. Appreciate him for all he has to offer: ask him about what he was like growing up — try to find out what made him who he is today; ask him about his work — his expertise can be unexpectedly valuable; share his interests and hobbies — you may find you enjoy taking in a football game, building a toy house, or watching that Bruce Lee movie that he's always talking about more than you ever thought you would, if you do it with dad.

And make sure to articulate your affection — reach out to him and even the most inexpressive father will reach back to you.

When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years. Mark Twain

Father's Day 2006 is on June 18.

A father carries pictures where his money used to be. — Unknown

For Jnr Vadai

T-2 days

Mo-Demob meeting was good.

It would seem we have a big window of time to set thing up but I am not going to slow down. Mob begins at 2pm and that will give us 6 hours today and 12 hours tomorrow to iron out the kinks.

Right now the packing has begun, and the team is in place. There were a few bad batches of the premium gifts which the designer has agreed to take it back to be reworked on.

Back to work

On the side lines there is Father's Day - a blog on that later

T-3 days

I really like the way comes together despite the hiccups.

The webpage went live and there was smiling faces even on those who nose thumb me. We manage to pull it off, there are a few spelling mistakes here and there but to turn around in 96 hours and go live it something I have to pat my own back!!! Some of the bugs I will iron out myself some have to edit the static page.

As for the exhibition, we are moving forward, came in early today to handle the mob-demob program, review the gifts, the printed signs etc etc

I was not too happy with the premium gifts selected, we could have done a better job, the lollipop pens were cute and it will be a hit.

Our 3 pm mob-demob meeting that supposed to start is delayed, so I curi tulang do the blog.

Esok will be demob phase 1, hope no hicupps

For the record Agries was flying

Relativism: the world without truth

I had extracted this article ffrom the web a while back when I was discussing TRUTH with a fren, today an email form a dear fren jolted back this blogger to this article.

Take time to read it and see if you truly understand the contect it is being presented in... as I say its intriguing.

(scene: a classroom: several chairs in rows all facing exit)

(Alex and an unspecified number of other students enter one or
two at a time, sit in chairs. Alex sits in end chair nearest

PROF -- (enters with books and papers, crosses to podium, puts
down books and papers) Okay, let's get started. Welcome to
Philosphy 101. I'm Professor Johnson. The first concept I want
to teach you is that there is no objective truth. Let me repeat
that. There is no such thing as objective truth.

ALEX -- (jumps up, shouts) Yah hoo!

PROF -- Excuse me. What do you think you're doing?

ALEX -- I'm rejoicing.

PROF -- Just exactly what are you rejoicing about?

ALEX -- What you're saying is that we don't have to take notes
and we won't have any tests in this course.

PROF -- I never said that.

ALEX -- Well, that's what you implied.

PROF -- No, I didn't.

ALEX -- Sure you did. If there is no objective truth, that means
that there are no right or wrong answers on the tests. So, why
even have tests?

PROF -- Let me make a few things clear, before you go off half
cocked. In this course, there will be two midterm tests and a
final exam in order to measure how well you grasp the concepts
of this course.

ALEX -- But if there is no objective truth, there's only my
truth and your truth. And in that case, will your tests be
testing my truth, your truth or (points to another student) his

PROF -- Well, if you want to be contentious about it, you will
be tested on the truth as I perceive it.

ALEX -- And what makes your truth more valuable than my truth or
his truth? I mean, I really like the way his truth sounds. Maybe
we should hear everybody's truth and vote on whose truth should
be in the final exam.

PROF -- Since I am running this class, you will be tested on MY
truth. (louder) Have I made myself clear?

ALEX -- But if there is no objective truth, what we'll be
hearing from you is just your truth.

PROF -- That is correct. What's your point?

ALEX -- If there is no objective truth to measure your truth
against, what makes your truth more valuable that ours?

PROF -- Because I say so!

ALEX -- Yes, but without an objective standard to measure truth
against your truth is just your opinion. Don't you feel guilty?

PROF -- Guilty? Why would I feel guilty?!

ALEX -- Because you are accepting a paycheck for just spouting
your opinion.

PROF -- To answer your question, I am being paid for SPOUTING my
opinion because my opinion is based on many years of research.
Now, do you mind if we continue?

ALEX -- Why bother? Your premise is flawed.

PROF -- What premise is flawed?

ALEX -- You said that there is no objective truth.

PROF -- That is correct. There is no objective truth. What is
flawed about that premise?

ALEX -- Well, if there is no objective truth, then by definition
it can't be true that there is no objective truth. You're
premise nullifies itself.

PROF -- No it doesn't.

ALEX -- Alright, let's suppose for a second that the only thing
in the whole universe that's absolutely true is that there is no
objective truth.

PROF -- That's what I've been trying to tell you.

ALEX -- Good. That means that nothing is absolsutely true.

PROF -- That's correct.

ALEX -- ....including your premise that there's no objective
truth. Therefore, we can't take your premise seriously, since
even your premise can't be absolutely true.

PROF -- Wait a minute. That can't be right. (mumbles)

ALEX -- Yes, it can, Professor Smith?

PROF -- My name is Professor Johnson.

ALEX -- That would be in YOUR perception of the truth. In my
perception of the truth, you are Professor Smith.

PROF -- (throws up hands, exits) What's the use. Class

ALL -- (cheer and exit, discussing excitedly)

T - 5 days for ICA

With my MD back a lot of the slouches got back to work big time after a drilling from him. A pat on the back and I got to work.

The invitation list and the society launch was on schedule and we have 2 new team members. Today we got to finalize the equipment thats stuck in customs, handle the RSVP, the web page goes live today and I am really excited bout that.

I can see the progress we ar emaking despite different school of thoughts and one of the few time, rarely at best that my MD has let me run it my way.

On the sidelines, I took a walk to the KLCC fountain thingy and sat there for a while to clear my head and the rubbish in my head. Trying to balance a few things, a timely sms from a fren did help lift the spirits. The went to meet my cousin. I should received a package today, curious

T - 6 days for ICA

Well its the point of no return, 6 days before the exhibition and my hairs are turning white.

Out of the 6 paying principals 3 have shipped their materials another 3 are in transit, and the prob is the time line is short. I have emphasized over and over again for they to arrive on time. Well the benefit of the world being wrong would be my disadvantage lol. Working thru the night on emials and calls to get this on the road.

This is further compounded by the fact that my Big Boss who is supposed to be steering this project and the resident Gwailo are all away. So the good old vadai got to crazk the whip

Lets see where we are
Door gifts and premium gifts are complate awaiting delivery
Brochures & company profiles will arrive in the nick of time (after re-writes)

I worked on the floor plan last night and to fit all in gonna take some 3D thinking.

Invitation have gone out, email blitz will be tomorrow and calling will begin tomorrow. Now it to tie up loose end and hope all fall in place.

Sigh, its something I know I am good at. Special Project Vadai hmmmm

Brazil Brazil Brazil!!!

Been a fan of Brazil since 1982 (coz 1978 too small to know the significance)

The winning run now stands at eight victories. It began all the way back in Ulsan 1,471 days ago with a 2-1 success over Turkey and tonight in Berlin it reached a special milestone with a 1-0 defeat of Croatia. No team in the history of the FIFA World Cup™ has put together such a long, victorious streak as Brazil.

Lets see how far they go this time!!! Ronald is not fit and a pale shadow of himself. Robhino seem to be flying. Well I aint the coach let seee what happens.

Futsal a great way to develop your football skills coz you need to develop your ball control, passing and vision. Its also quite physical coz you run up and down the pitch a lot. Its a great way to start and its quite easy to access. You just need a small area, plus its covered so no risk of adverse weather. you can also afford to do more tricks and skill moves..which is a great way to humiliate your opponent!

When a few of us 1st started this, back in January we met with a frustrating task of getting people to come, its not like we force them but they say yes then they FFK, so we tried some fell wayward, we met new frens non chatters but from all walks of life and lo behold we have consistently allocated every Monday for futsal. We not have a regular bunch of 15-20 players where about at least 10 show up.

It a great cardio workout. Last night session, I was darn happy, for 2 reason, 1 because of a fren I manage to get new shoes and I actually like the color, so the stress from the weekend , and work and the coming exhibition and having to handle the web page ...sigh

I made a determination to explode on the court, and explode I did, playing hard, blocking shots (took one in the chest, in the ass ouch!!), Thoress came and it awesome to see her, for the life of me she cant kick, but she was all over the court, even put me to shame with her fitness. She blocked the tackled and made super saves. Salute Thoress!!!

My game is burst of speed, setting up play, drawing defenders, I work well with a sweeper, it not I am the one playing the ball. I like to stroke it set it up, make magic passes (I made quite a few) I know I scored more then 5 goals, and when I scored super goals or set up beautiful ones I raise my hands in the air. Its magic for me. I know I am improving as my legs went out only once as compared to previous weeks. For the record the score was 17-10.

Next Monday, futsal again (at least I dun have to remind people anymore. Svejjen and I got simple philosophy, you want to come then come dun ask 20 questions)

Friday with Jnr Vadai

Friday I had gone to do the Ketua Polis Selangor Cup, was a splash and dash, umpire the finals of the game. The Guest of Honour was a familiar face in the form of the Timbalan Ketus Polis Selangor.

Not to brag, they need an umpire that can handle the game and DSP M called me since I had been doing the tournament past 5 years and the last 4 finals. I had not held a wistle in a long time but as the saying goes it was riding a bike.

Jnr Vadai upon hearing I was down, ask me to promise him that I take him to the stadium since he had not been there in a long time. No one to watch him while I umpire, so I told them to drop him at the stadium after the finals. After they had sorted out their politics...sigh...just to bring him to the stadium... he arrived, by that time most of the crowd has started to depart as it was the closing ceremoy.

I notice a vastly different bahaviour, he was calm though excited to play, I got him a junior stick that I had been carrying around in my car past 6 mths. A smile to light the darkest corners. Took Jnr Vadai for the closing tea ceremony, he was on cloud nine, shaking hands with everyone, introducing himself, calling everyone uncle even the Timbalan Ketua Polis Selangor.

After the closing tea ceremony took him to the turf and let him loose. Even to get him to pose for a photo was difficult. Imagine a bird set free and flying, that was Jnr Vadai, words cant descrive how I felt inside to see him play. Some of my polis fren even came tothe field to watch and play with him. Kodak Moment!!!

When we finished he came over and hugged me can see he really enjoyed it...if only the idiots of home could see what I see lol. Set a kid free and you will see magic.

The coming week

I had a real scare with my blured vision over the weekend. Did not mention to anyone except a fren? Saw the doc and thats that. Hope to get better

As usual the coming exhibition will fall on my head together with the website project, already undertakes all the primary work. This week will see the arrival of all the marketing and promotion materials from 5 different principals. 2 Technical Presentations that will be held concurently with the exhibition. Tie up loose ends with the souvenirs, arrivals and departures.

I hope to catch a movie, if I can afford it, help me take a break

All this during World Cup month arrghhhh

As I told Svejjen during shifting " You Can Do It" Rob Schneider style

How he lived

Emperor Meiji: Tell me how he died.
Algren: I will tell you how he lived.

How do you measure a man’s greatness? – By his ideals; by how he lived; by his conduct; by what he achieved while he was alive; by how he is thought of by his wife; his children; his people; his peers; his colleagues; by other communities; by world leaders; by history.

As I live my life day by day, month by month we look back to measure how much we have acheived and how we are proud of ourself. Thats important, are you proud what you have achieved. It aint about the riches, the power, the car you drive and all the other benefits of life.
Its something else, lets see if you know.

Over the past few day juggling a trip to Klang to help a police fren with a match, time with junior vadai, the World Cup opening match and blurred vision..I had to deal with certain people I call frens. There come a point where you have to drawn lines when an expression of agreement that is not supported by real conviction ..No point wasting blog space to entertain them.

Those who are prejudicial, assumptive, accusive, and make claims, the fallacy is you are at the window looking in and forever will be by that window but know this... "When I tell the truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those that do."

For my obituary will read how he lived not how he died.

Some even like to wear those very thick socks with their school shoes.
* Internet? E-mail? What the hell is that?
* So you thought a decade or more ago, your friends don't have pagers or handphones in school.
* CDs? What's that? Cassette tapes were the norm. Movie tickets used to cost less than $5 last time.
* The goodies from Mama shop used to be Chickerdis, Mamee , Kum Kum, UFO, O-Ya, Ding Dang chocolate balls with toys in the box, colourful hard "egg", "cigerette" bubble gum, KIKI Bubble Gum, pink bottle of bubbles c/w a small tubes with yellow sticks to blow "more lasting" bubbles that you can pop more air in or slam it on.
* You never forget 'Ti Kam'. When exams are over, the board games (e.g Monopoly, Donkey, Transportation Comparison Card) & held video games will be all over the class room.
* Your favourite sound is the bell! For it's the homemade ice cream man. The cream that tops Haagan Dazs!
* Another bell is the recess bell, a time to getaway from school work and to eat.
* Another time when there is no bell but all guys will anxiously wait for it...The PJ (Pendidikan Jasmani), PE time (time for football)
* Your favourite childhood games were playing "guli"(marbles), five stones, five bottle cover, zero-point, catching, "Pepsi-Cola one two three" and/or "Police & Sentry"!
* The best thirst quencher of all times is the yummy colourful ice tubes you can buy from provision shops for only 10cent. To eat them, break the tab and suck while holding the freezing tube!
* All gals have a girl doll/strawberry shortcake/my little pony/pound puppy, while all boys have a soldiers figurine (combat) or a rubber band catapult that shoots folded paper!
Once was the era whereby ice-cream sticks were valueable items, then came the paper aircrafts, chalk fights.
* Some boys made their own guns from wood, and used 'Bacali' as the bullets.

Let's see, the majority of students in universities today were born in 1987 / 88.... They are called "youth".

* For them, they have never heard of the song "We are the World, we are the Children..." And the "Uptown Girl" they know is by 'West Life' but not 'Billy Joel'.
* For them, there have always been only one Germany and only one Vietnam. AIDS exists since they were born.
* CD exists since they were born.
* Michael Jackson is already whitened.
* John Travolta is always round in shape and they can't imagine how this fat guy could be a god of dance.
* They believe that Spiderman and Incredible Hulk are just new films.
* They can never imagine a black and white screen for a computer.
* They never know what is Atari or 'Game & Watch'.
* They can't believe a black and white television ever existed and they don't even know how to switch on a TV without a remote control.
* And they never understand how we can go out without a mobile phone when we were in university...

Let's check if we're getting old...
1. You understand what was written above and you smile.
2. Most of your secondary school friends are getting married.
3. You are always surprised to see small children playing comfortably with computer.
4. When you see teenagers with mobile phones, you shake your head.
5. You spend less and less time talking on phone with your friends daily.
6. When you meet your old friends from time to time, talking about the good old days, repeating again and again all funny stories you experienced together.

Hahaha!.... Yes! We are getting old too...........
Brings back old memories huh?

Cheers to the 70s n 80s babies!!!

Spagetti for Fren

Over the Agong Birthday weekend I had said I wanted to cook only now I had the time to updated my blog. Kalai, Svejjen, Thoress, Xxie, Angel, Commie were invited, and showed up.

Started cooking inthe afternoon. (I wish to record thanks to my sifu cook guide for the sms consultancy) When they arrived by 5pm and after a little tea we all went for a swim, I came up early to prepare the food and by 8pm ready to eat. In the end it was a superb dinner burp!!! and Thoress made a superb salad with the magical "extra virgin" olive oil (refer to old blog for the meaning of that)

I let the pics tell the rest.
