Wow its 1 year

Today is the 1-year anniversary of this blog. When I started this blog I had no idea what I wanted to do with it and what focus it would take. I jump on the band wagon of my frens and chatters having and maintaining blogs. It seems after a year it is a mish mosh of things with a little bit of me mixed in. I have done over 400 post and some aint pretty, I made new friends thru my blog and some enemies too...whats the heck its a free world.

But I can happily report that for the most part, the folks on the blog end I've met have quite social, rounded personalities and a few odds and enders. Most are simply everyday folks who had a penchant for observation and a desire to communicate to a broader circle. Others have rather esoteric, interesting backgrounds and look for a venue to communicate their work to a much broader audience. In either case, this is all Good Stuff - when you strip away all the other mumbo jumbo of life, friends & family are the most important thing you've got left and blogging's had a positive impact on this all around.

Blogging has, however, let me indulge my passions in areas outside of my work. Like I said in my first article, I've always had a deep interest in just about anything (mat kepoh) but I have never shyed away form confrontration, accusation, misinterpretation and ididots who use me or my comment or my blog as a weapon against me or my friends.

Due to blogging, my thoughts are more well formed, crisp, and, groomed for the savage beating of Internet intellectual opinion. I'm thus well armed for conversation at the bar or office water cooler.So, I've learned something new, met some new folks, fleshed out a few interests and participated in a new, emergent social online dairy.... All at a cost of about 20-30 min a day. As a hobby, I think it's something I can see sticking with for at least another year ;-)

The weekend Part 2

Came back bout 4 and took a nap, evening went to pasar malam. That night the Chariot came out. Why? Coz it was Vinayagar Chaturthi.... (So no double moon)

Vinayagar Chaturthi is grandly celebrated in Malaysia. All Vinayagar temples celebrate this festival. Other temples also often celebrate it, especially if there is no Vinayagar temple in that area. Vinayagar Chaturthi falls on the 4th day of the new moon in the month of Aavani (August-September).

It was lovely, they had Urumi Melam(drums and trumpet) and Coconut breaking and the chariot was pulled by people on a long rope and 2 cows, awesome

Why celebrate?
Legends say that, lord Ganapati was created by goddess Parvati, wife of Lord Shiva. She has created him with the dough she used for her bath, as she had needed one door-keeper while she takes bath. For this Goddess Parvati had created one doll first and breathed life into him. And this day is known as the birthday of lord Ganesha. It is also said that, while Goddess Parvati was taking her bath Lord Shiva happened to come there and as Ganesha didn't know him, he didn't allow him to enter the house. As a result Lord Shiva got angry and he beheaded Ganesha. But after realizing the real fact lord Shiva fixed the head of an elephant in place of Ganesha's head and thus the appearance of Lord Ganesha with the head of an elephant happened.

Another most popular legend found in Skanda Purana says, once Ganesha was invited for a feast in Chandralok. The god, known for his ravenous appetite, stuffed himself with laddoos. When he got up to walk after the meal, he could not balance because of his huge stomach and stumbled. As he fell, his stomach burst and all the laddoos came rolling out. The moon could not contain himself and began laughing. Enraged, Ganesha cursed the moon, causing him to vanish from the universe. However because of the moon's absence, the whole world began to wane. So the gods asked Shiva to persuade Ganesha to relent. The moon also apologized for his misbehaviour. On Shiva's intervention, Ganesha modified his curse. He announced that the moon would be invisible on only one day of a month and would be partially seen for the Ganesha Utsav most part.

Pics tell the story

The weekend part 1

Here's where it makes the most sense. You need it so you don't forget. Forget that there are places in the world that aren't made out of stone. That there's a - there's a - there's something inside that's yours, that they can't touch

My weeked was kind of relaxing, was a chuffer to Hilton, had a 5 hour window, grabbed Kalai, Beem and Agi, Beem did not show up so we went to a mamak in Sentul to catch the Kop's game. Watching Kyut as he stepping gave me great hope for the Kop's season. At the spur of the moment Kalai suggested to watch movie - the new Kamalhassan movie, made a few calls Beem and Scud came along and with Gina so there we were 11 am on Chitra Pournami watching a tamil movie in KLCC.

Vetayadu Vilayadu is gutsy(rarely u see tamil movies movin away form love stories) gritty endeavour that ventures into excruciating details about the world of investigative cops and serial killers. Stylistically inventive throughout both the Cops and the Killers were awesome in their potrayal. there is too much violence against women, gory scenes, but its areas where tamil movies hardly ventured buy did a superb potrayal this time.

Opening scene it self was gory...DCP Raghavan (Kamal Hassan) who comes to Madurai to investigate the gruesome murder of Rani, daughter of the City Police Commissioner Arogyaraj (Prakash Raj- superb acting) his close friend and mentor. Rani was brutally raped and body decapitated and her finger hung as a dristi kair along with three green chillies and a lemon, outside her house! - Hows that!!!

The story is really bold – no policeman has been shown with such a human side. No villain has been shown to possess such deep psychoses. No crimes depicted and displayed with such deadly effect.

Kamal Haasan is truly a class apart – he doesn’t pretend to be 20-something: he is a veteran of vast experience (there is a line from him to the killer: Chinna pasanga, yaaru kooda vilaiyaadareenga?!). He looks good and like a cop should with his smart posture and crisp linen clothing. His acting, of course, needs no description.

Well after that we all adjourned to avenue K for some lunch. My throath still bad so I did not take anything spicy. It was nice hanign out with Kalai and gang... too many indian movies hmmm

Kop end - 100 years - damm it feels good

As an adrent supporter we refer to our self by names for Liverpool is Kop. Y? Coz.. thats the famous end of the stadium where send shudder down the spine of opponets when they start roaring. The life to any stadium is not in its capacity but in the voive of that capacity. The KOP end is like no other.

The stadium was built in 1884. In 1906, the banked stand at one end of the ground was formally renamed the Spion Kop, after a hill in Natal that was the site of a battle in the Second Boer War, where over 300 men of the Lancashire Regiment died, many of whom were from Liverpool. At its largest, the stand could hold 28,000 spectators, and was one of the largest single tier stands in the world. Local folklore claimed that the fans in the Kop could "suck the ball into the goal" if Liverpool were playing towards that end. Indeed they could. I had the honor of one home game at the Kop end and it was electric.

It's the greatest football stand in the world, but less of you may know that it will be celebrating it's 100th birthday on the 26th August 2006 when the reds play West Ham at Anfield. Since the 1960's they have sung "You never walk alone" and koppers never walk alone.


MY Team

On my msn I have a tag line "Vadai is at Kop end" Many chatters not familiar with 'Kop' always asked me what that actually meant. I would not call my self a hardcore suppport of a team but sink or swim we are loyal to one team. My team is Liverpool and they play in the English Premier League.

Liverpool Football Club (usually known simply as Liverpool) are a professional football club based in Liverpool, in the north west of England. They play in the FA Premier League and are the most successful club in the history of English football. (No arguments there). The club was founded on March 15, 1892 by John Houlding, the owner of Anfield. Houlding decided to form his own team after Everton left Anfield in an argument over rent. The original name was to be Everton F.C. and Athletic Grounds, Ltd., or Everton Athletic for short, but was changed to Liverpool F.C. after The Football Association refused to recognise the team as Everton. Liverpool were elected to the Football League two years later.

The roll of the dice

The Star Front Page Cover showed an accident victim a tree landed across her car. What if I told you that it could have been me!!

KUALA LUMPUR: A woman was trapped in her car for two hours after a tree smashed into it at the height of a storm here.

The woman, in her 30s, was driving along Jalan Tun Razak at 5pm when the 6m tree uprooted by strong winds landed on her Nissan Serena.

Driving down Jln Tun Razak, not feeling well I headed off early, dropping of a co-cowkrer at Ampag Park... Passing the underpass at the golf club I proceeded forward coming out of the under pass, driving forward near RHB (Opposite Time) I head horns blaring behind me and in my review mirror I could see something leaves on the road, quickly pulling into the RHB lane getitng down from the car I looked back to see a whole broken off across 4 lanes, I was shaken thinking I had just driven thru that earlier.

Walking to the area thinking how I could help, I felt my hand shaking, heart pounding, I found a Nissan Serena and a few other cars trapped under. Worse was the Nissan pinned under, calling emergency services, as slowly the crowd help release the other cars. The tree fell across 4 lanes.

The most serious damage was near 2 lanes by the gold course. Damm it was nervy and scary, soon emergency services

II consider this a brush with death, maybe I’d decide that my life needed to change - that there is no reason why I should live the way I am. That life is too short. Everybody does things because they think they have to. That it’s their responsibility as adults. People say that you should enjoy life like every day might be your last…but do people really think like that??

I think different people have ways of dealing with these questions. Some people actually take themselves to the brink of life and death, day after day. Take for instance, rock climbers. Is it just fun? Or is it a way of staring death in the face, so as to validate their very existence? maybe I need something to validate my own existence.

But why are there so many people who don’t know why they are alive…people who don’t feel their existence IS valid, and so seek it out in ways that, to me, seem wrong. You shouldn’t have to face death to experience life. You shouldn’t become a hooker, a drug addict, a “successful” business person to validate you reason to be alive. People spend their lives “climbing the corporate ladder”, and what happens when they get to the top? They keep climbing.

Take a moment, break free of the chains that shackle you. I know I did. To a pleasent weekend away. Commie here I come

Today Is A Gift - Touching

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.

One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation. And every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm-in-arm amidst flowers of every color of the rainbow. Grand old trees graced the landscape, and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man couldn't hear the band - he could see it in his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days and weeks passed. One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the world outside. Finally, he would have the joy of seeing it for himself.

He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed. It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall. She said, "Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you."

Deadlines & Idiots

Somehow English can get lost in translation especially when translating to English. Go figure. People sometimes dun understand the simplest of excuses and reasoning when the truth could be starign them in the face, they choose to stick to their beliefs. Deadlines looms on tenders and RFQ working hard to resolve it and maybe I can get away early.... and get some sleep...

We got looming business and expecially handling communication with a team that has a 12 hour difference with you does take its toll and stretch the response time. Part and parcel of long distance business partnerships

If all we have to do is open our eyes to a truth which is staring us in the face, why hasn't it already happened? Maybe I'm blind, but is everyone else blind, too?

the simplest way to keep from getting burned

Trust is a fragile thing. Once earned, it affords us tremendous freedom. But once trust is lost, it can be impossible to recover. Of course the truth is, we never know who we can trust. Those we're closest to can betray us, and total strangers can come to our rescue. In the end, most people decide to trust only themselves. It really is the simplest way to keep from getting burned.

Wish this week would go away

Cant recall where the week went?

Monday - No futsal
Wednesday - No badminton

No workout this week, lots of stress, deadlines, principal visits, met Macroman from Singapore was good to see him. Offered a job in Singapore not sure if I wanna go back there. Ironically L sms me the same thing. Told Macro I gave up a lot to come back here not sure I an ready to live a life there again.

I sometimes wish the work would bugger off. There has been principal visits past few week and I guess it taking it toll on me.

Yesterday pouring rain was the pits, so god damm heavy drank some Rhinathiol slept and woke up late inot the night, a light dinner.

Today morning woke up to find news of death again, this time a distant uncle who I was close to back in the 80's pass away this morning, woke up at 4am to the call, rush to make the visit before heading into the office.

He lived to a ripe age for 94, I wonder if I would live that long or want to live that long. Thats a topic for another blog.

Friday Scuddie and Commie will drop by me place, 1st time Commie dropping over after his accident. Scuddie would be the 1st time after the WC finals.

Sat I am a chuffer, Sun I want to sleep.

Sigh I wish this week would disappear

An interesting comment in the NST today

Living in a mad, mad world

TWO years ago, a man fell to his death from the 10th floor of the office block opposite ours. It was lunchtime and a crowd soon filled the sidewalk, gawking. Someone kindly covered him with a newspaper.

His wife and daughters were grief-stricken.

When someone falls to his death, it is not the person's failure in life. It is society’s failure to listen to him.

In an ideal world, everyone should have a handful of people they can trust to unburden to. And these confidantes should not feel that their friends' problems are a burden.

At Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL), patients seeking psychiatric help fill the waiting room. Other patients shun them. Once in a while, one will bolt screaming. And other patients will exchange silent looks that say: “Orang gila (mad person).”

This is the stigma when society does not know how to cope with someone who has fallen from its “norm.”

Who is to say really that the unkempt guy with bedraggled locks wandering on the flyover is not the sane one, shouting at society with his fist in the air. In his own world, he might have a valid point.

Remember the politically incorrect joke about escaping from Tanjung Rambutan or Tampoi – the two towns that house mental hospitals?

Experts say that for every known case, many more are cloaked in silence for fear of the stigma of having a “psychiatric disorder.”

When you die

An odd thing happens when we die, our senses vanish. Taste, touch, smell and sound become a distant memory, but our sight? Ah, our sight expands and we can suddenly see the world we left behind so clearly. Of course most of what's visible to the dead could also be seen by the living, if they would only take the time to look.

The right to die

Who decides whether a life is worth living or not? You? Me? The Man!!?? Many people say they would rather die than suffer in great pain, or be trapped in a vegetative state. Should people have the right to decide when and how they will die? Should others -- their families, their doctors, the government -- be able to decide for them? What is the choice was in ur hands, you had to decide who dies and who lives? How about your life? How if you choose to die?

Death, the process of dying, has become far more complicated than it once was. 100 ago, most people died at home of illnesses that medicine could do little to defeat. Now technology has created choices for dying patients and their families, choices that raise basic questions about human dignity and what constitutes a "good death."

Most people die in hospitals or institutions where the staff makes a valiant effort to keep patients alive until there is no reasonable chance of recovery. At what price? For many people, that's exactly what they want: a no-holds-barred effort to fight off death as long as possible. For others facing terminal illness, however, there may come a point where the fight no longer seems worth it. Those patients may find their wishes and those of their families overlooked as physicians juggle medical, legal and moral considerations. In most cases, medical professionals have considerable discretion in deciding when additional efforts to sustain life are futile and a patient should be allowed to die.

Is it right?

Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna - Never Say Goodbye

We meet acquaintances in funny ways and these past few months I have kind of opened myself to a different environment. I been watching more tamil movies in theaters. I love tamil and hindi movies but not the kind to sit thru 3 hours of a movie with 6 songs sequences and more dress changes, still one kenot resist a good movie. A suggest we go to this movie, was supposed to be Friday but since Marie scheduled in Beach, I asked A to schedule if for Sat. She agreed, initially was just me her and kalai, but they block book 6 tickets, so I sent a few sms to see who was interested in watching, the usualy suspects declines, L declined also (but I was fuddled by a barrages of exchanges b4 getting the msg across sigh), anyway push came to shove, A, me, Kalai, scud, P and a new acquaintance S drop by, we lepak at Coffeebean and its was a ncie chemistry of mixing around. S warmed to all of us and fit right in.

I had read the synopsis for this movie, which did not give it a good review. Its a movie about extra-marital affairs a subject I am quite experienced on and it hit me like a rock. Lots of events portrayed in this movie I can relate to and tears flowed freely.

Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna - Never Say Goodbye

Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (KANK) is the story of Dev and Maya, both married to different people and completely convinced that they are happy, until they meet each other. Dev (Shah Rukh Khan) is a professional football player whose promising career is nipped in the bud after an accident. He is married to Rhea (Preity Zinta) whose career is on an upswing. They have a son, Arjun, and Dev’s mother, Kamaljit (Kirron Kher) lives with them. Maya (Rani Mukherji) teaches at a nursery and has married her closest friend Rishi (Abhishek Bachchan), a PR consultant. Rishi’s father, Samarjit Singh aka Sam (Amitabh Bachchan) is a flamboyant, fun-loving man whose life revolves around the happiness of his son and daughter-in-law.

The two couples seem content despite the dissatisfaction below the surface but things start to change when a chance encounter between Dev and Maya brings them closer. There is a strange connection between them which blossoms into friendship.

Their time together soon causes complications. This new-found friendship between Dev and Maya causes them to look into their marriages with a new perspective and face up to issues that they hadn’t before. How all the different characters deal with this new development in their lives forms the crux of Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna.

Karan Johar

Star Cast
Amitabh Bachchan...... Samarjit Singh Talwar aka Sam, Shahrukh Khan...... Dev Saran, Rani Mukherjee...... Maya Talwar, Preity Zinta...... Rhea Saran, Abhishek Bachchan...... Rishi Talwar, Kirron Kher...... Kamaljeet Saran,

Rani M was awesome a face you could just look again and again, amongst my top list with Aish and Kajol who did make a cameo appearance.

The screenplay balances the two extremes -- light moments and dollops of emotions -- with amazing ease. The relationship between the couples or even those between the parent and child is delicately handled. If there are moments that move you to tears, there are ample moments that bring a smile to your face as well. Another noteworthy aspect is its forthright dialogues. The lines sound straight of life and there also exist a host of interesting observations. Yes, the film is talky, but in a smart way. You never feel that the characters are talking to hear their own words or to fill up screen time. It moved me coz I have seen it happen in my life

Abhishek is brilliant, especially when he gets serious towards the end. His penultimate sequence, when he gives a golden advice to Rani, is outstanding. Preity not only looks gorgeous, but the dedication to her role shows at vital points. Her penultimate scene with Rani, when she confronts her at the marriage reception, is fabulous.

Amitabh Bachchan is in superb form. The naughty streak that he displays soon disappears in the second half, when he realizes that something is amiss. In fact, his expressions at the dinner first and also in the hospital only reiterates the fact that he's an icon.

Worth watching.

Beach Club Review

Beach club with XXXie was, was nto bother who else showed up or did nto show up about coming, miss that girl. The USS Enterprise, was in town so the place was loaded with sailors both sexes.. weeeeeeeee. Devil was there in her own world, we just let her be. I enjoyed my self and did not regret going except the fact it burned a hole in my pocket. The caga came in and the sailor girls climbed on it and being a gentleman lol they sought my assistance to climb up.

What was I supposed to go, I gave an helping hand, so here I was dancing down, Sam showed up then Pik (abang) was rocking the house so it was me, xiie and Pik really nice really good. A guy bought me 2 beers ( go figure) the girls gave me a big peck on the cheek for keeping away the maruding middle east men. All in a day's work.

I was happy to spend time wiht Xxiee, we cant relive the past but we sure can build better futures...

Rock on..

One of those days

Sean: Do you have a soul mate? Will: Define that. Sean: Someone you can relate to, someone who opens things up for you. Will: Sure, I got plenty. Sean: Well, name them. Will: Shakespeare, Nietzsche, Frost, O'Conner... Sean: Well that's great. They're all dead. Will: Not to me, they're not. Sean: You can't have a lot of dialogue with them. Will: Not without a heater and some serious smelling salts.

You ever have one of those days where you’re working constantly but your list never seems to get any shorter? You know one of those days that just seemed to drag on and on and by the end of the day you’re so shot mentally that the first person that comes along an even just looks at you funny you bite their head off and end up walking away even grumpier? Yeah, it’s been one of those days.

Xxxie been sounding me to come out to beach, m not feeling to well but she is dear to me, dun think I wanna pass up.... I often told xxiee its been a long time since she been herself in Beach ... so much water under the bridge. The way Alacy eyes would open wide in beach club or the way Kalai would 'main mata', Subbie shivering from the aircond blast....those were the days.

Good one from Lacy

Today Friday woh ok ok 5% lol

Now I know how to give 100% a week

What a stupid headline in the NST today

High degree of sexual promiscuity and ignorance on campus

18 Aug 2006 Shamini Darshni

KUALA LUMPUR: They either have no fear or are ignorant. Either way, MalaysiaÂ’s best and brightest are flirting with AIDS and death every day, suggests a survey of private colleges and public universities.

One in two young adults are having sex. Unnerving? Try this. Eighty per cent of them do not use contraceptives.

Latest figures show that sexually-active university and college students, between the ages of 18 and 25, do not even think about condoms when they hop into the sack.

What bloody century are the dumb researches living in?? Hellloooo? You don't need a researcher to tell you this. Its so evident, not to label all students as sluts but from back then its evident?

Sheesh what a waste of time. Wei its so bad it seven happening in schools and teenagers, but I guess that will only beresearchedd and made a headline in year 2010.

A turn for the worse

Came back from work today and crashed into bed, getting worse...popped some pills and woke up close to 10....cought a little TV made some soup and did some blogging.

Its past midnight and Friday and my head is numb...went online but no familiar faces... gonna take lots of fluid and survive the weekend... Hope to bump into xxx tomorrow....mamak sounds nice right now with soup kambing... mmmmmmm subbie got a cousin birthday..... I need a massage hehehe tempted by Jen's offer hope I strike it rich this week,

Time to sign off. Friday Gambateh!!!!

Reading Tom Clancy till I can sleep


I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up DOES rejoice. Still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend.

How to find quality in your next car


The best way is to see for yourself. Here are 10 of the key things to look for at the dealership:
10 keys to look for

  1. Look at the seams.
  2. Match colors.
  3. What lies beneath?
  4. Under the hood.
  5. Eye the glass.
  6. Door "thunk".
  7. Interior design.
  8. Exposed wiring.
  9. Little things mean a lot.
  10. Serious test drive.

First, check out the body of the car, looking beyond the styling and paying attention to the details.

1. Look at the seams. Check the gaps between body panels. Are the gaps uniform throughout? A well-engineered and constructed car will show the same body gaps around the doors, the trunk and the hood. Pay particular attention to this on vehicles that have been significantly redesigned or are all new to the market. Although the old adage about not buying a redesigned model in the first year generally no longer applies, varying body gaps may indicate the assembly process needs some adjusting.

2. Match colors. Pay attention to the places on the body where different materials are used, such as where a nose made of a composite plastic material meets the steel of the rest of the body. The paint should not noticeably change hue from one surface to another.

3. What lies beneath? Look under the car to see what protrusions, particularly at the front, could get hung up on parking berms and rip free. Most cars have some sort of air dam underneath the vehicle at the front to aid in cutting aerodynamic drag. But such air dams should be mounted far enough back so parking berms won't rip them off or should be mounted in such a way as to bend rather than break when encountering an object.

4. Under the hood. Even if you're no mechanic, closely inspect the engine bay. Most cars have a cover that surrounds most of the top of the engine. Make sure it's mounted securely -- you shouldn't be able to shake it. The same test should apply to any battery covering. Look at the wiring. It should be either covered or tightly bound together to prevent anything from coming loose.

5. Eye the glass. Look at the window glass and see how the side windows fit against the rubber gaskets when closed. Anything less than a perfect fit will result in wind noise that will only get worse as the car ages.

6. Door "thunk". Open and close the doors, looking for how many so-called "stops" are built into the hinges. A vehicle's door should have two settings so that it will stay open in a half-way position and fully opened. Shut the door and listen for any sort of hollow boom, which could indicate there's less sound-deadening material in the door, which will mean greater road noise.

7. Interior design. Check out the finish on the interior panels. While plastic is the industry norm when it comes to door panels and dashboards, there's a wide variety of grains and finishes applied to the plastic. The dash and panels should have a rich-looking color and have a textured feel to the casual touch. As with the body, the gaps between interior panels should be close and uniform. Look especially where the air bags are hidden.

8. Exposed wiring. If the car you're interested in has power-adjustable front seats, feel under them to see how the wiring and motor coverings are secured. Loose wires or coverings could lead to problems in the future.

9. Little things mean a lot. Pay attention to things like seat latches. They should work with minimal effort and all handles should feel secure, not prone to bending or twisting. Check the stitching and seams of the seats for any loose threads or less-than-straight sewing. Open the trunk and see how the floor covering is secured and whether it's made of a material that will stand up to carrying heavy or dirty cargo.

10. Serious test drive. Lastly, when you've all but settled on the vehicle you want, take an extended test drive, not just a spin around the block. Drive at freeway speeds and pay attention to wind and road noise. Pay attention to how the automatic transmission shifts. It should change gears smoothly and quickly. On a manual transmission, feel where the clutch starts to engage and how long or short the pedal travel is. It should engage gradually and not have any abrupt lurches. Find a safe area to test the brakes. You're not so much looking for what the car will do in a panic stop, but rather how the brakes feel when you apply the pedal. Depending on how far the pedal travels, the feel of the brakes should inspire confidence that the vehicle will stop in a relatively short distance.

All of this may sound like a no-brainer step to buying a car, but according to a recent study, more than 40 percent of new car buyers closed the deal without even taking a short test drive.

Smart buyers will pay attention to every aspect of a car in order to get a vehicle that will deliver value.

my oh my oh my

my oh my oh my

one of those day what you wake up in the morning and feel your age. Double Sigh.

It was not a good game for me in badminton coz I was not feeling it. You know when your in the zone or close to it and you give it your all. You also know when you are not in the zone.

Ricky had asked Jen to partner me, and later on I asked why many were keen I that combination, point blank, in short, pair the strongest with the weakest in hte group on the court. No prizes for guessing who the weakest and the strongest. My curt reply to Jen was Not for long. I was serious in that.

Jen and I paired off for the 1st game against Uncle's Son and Tar boy and got hammered over in 4 minutes 15-0, I was like WTF 13-0 on the 1st serve. Decided to play another game 15-2 this time, we had our noses rubbed in.

Played a RM1 game wiht Peter (asshole) but because he is elderly we give him respect as Jen label him "The Little Runt" Lost the RM 1 game but later on in the night we came back to beat the Runt out of the court. He left after that.

I guess I better label myself a diesel engine as the 2nd half was a tremendous performance. 4 energy sapping doubles matches. It was great to beat Loh & Partick (The Great Wall of Malaysia). Jen and I took unbelievable, un-saveable (if there is such a word) out of sheer determination and at time cow luck.

Thoress showed up on the 2nd half and played with determination and a corn up her ass. Orthodox as her playing style might me she gave it to the guy and then again, of course I got to share her ‘milk’ lol. Having Thoress around is like fooling around with a buddy. She is nice down to earth and you can have fun jibbing her.

We played a couple more sets then went the distance. Every paring want to kick our ass and against Patrick and Loh, Adel and Tar Boy. We were at a stage, mind and body nothing left to offer except just returing shots.

Final set… Boooya a pair of 20 year olds (TAR boy and adel versus the 30’s Jen n me) damm we were on the ropes but we won and feel fucking great. Booya!! There was nothing left to give and I was on my knees after the game as my legs gave way. Every exchange won we like gulping air to recover...I got to focus more on my body and health these days, woke up today with phlegm in my chest and as I cought it out it was greenish… popped a few pills from the house pharmacy and back to work.

The weekend going to be a hard one.

I miss subbie, xxxieee

The Cranberries, - Linger

If you, if you could return
Don't let it burn,don't let it fade
I'm sure I'm not being rude
But it's just your attitude
It's tearing me apart
It's ruining everything
I swore, I swore I would be true
And honey so did you
So why were you holding her hand
Is that the way we stand
Were you lying all the time
Was it just a game to you

But I'm in so deep
You know I'm such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to, do you have to let it linger
Oh, I thought the world of you
I thought nothing could go wrong
But I was wrong, but I was wrong

If you, if you could get by
Trying not to lie
Things wouldn't be so confused
And I wouldn't feel so used
But you always really knew
I just wanna be with you

This is such a beautiful song. It's about how her guy let her down but she still loves him and she knows it's stupid to keep loving him but she has to go w/ her her heart. I personally can't relate but it's still a really good love song.


VCD copy or not, TGV or GSC not..... I parked my ass for this movie expecting to see Adam Sandler make a complete buffoon of himself. However, when I came out I was impressed. There was a depth to this movie I did not see coming, and it took me completely off guard. "Click" proved to be a powerful, emotional, and humorous piece of work. There was a certain philosophical message in this movie, in which I think, we all take for granted. Adam Sandler did a great job in playing a work-aholic. Kate Beckinsale (delicious lol) is very lovable as the wife and mother of his children and Hasslehoff couldn't have been more perfectly cast as the cluelessly self-absorbed exec/ boss. It is always great to see Christopher Walkin in any movie, and in "Click" he played the eccentric scientist who provides Adam Sandler with his life controlling remote.I Recommend this to anyone looking for a quality film with a good laugh.

I liked it a lot and I'm not normally one to feel either way about these type of movies. I'd go see it next time with family and friends that I really should spend more time with anyway!

Morty: He's always chasing the pot of gold, but when he gets there, at the end of the day, it's just corn flakes.

At then end of the movie I couldn't help reflect upon the need to really appreciate life's little moments and close friends and family more.

Michael Newman: By the way, my shmekel got bigger.
Trudy: Well it couldn't have gotten any smaller!
Ted: [Laughing] It was like a little tic-tac.
Michael Newman: Yeah! Well come over here, I'll freshen your breath!

to keep from getting brunt

Trust is a fragile thing..... Once earned, it affords us tremendous freedom. But once trust is lost, it can be impossible to recover.

Of course the truth is, we never know who we can trust. Those we're closest to can betray us, and total strangers can come to our rescue.

In the end, most people decide to trust only themselves. It really is the simplest way to keep from getting burned.

1. Lacking quickness of perception or intellect.
2. Characterized by a lack of intelligence or sensitivity: an obtuse remark.
3. Not distinctly felt: an obtuse pain.

I've only been reminded in the last few days constantly that I've let five years pass. I'm not being deliberately obtuse about it, but I wasn't aware of that time passing. I was quite happily engaged in other things. I set out to indulge my curiosity in other things, not just to get away from this work.

Hypotectical - Let us pretend

Hypotectical - Let us pretend for a moment. You and i r going out. We may not know each other, and maybe to a certain extent will never be attracted to one another, but let’s just say lah Hypotecitally...that is what is happening to us right now. I like you, and you like me. But other than that, nothing’s really happened yet.

We both spend some portion of our waking hours dizzily daydreaming about the possible outcomes of our so called love affair, and overall, life is a little bit more sweeter. Everything is candy coatedand because love, or even the idea that love might happen soon, is often enough to keep us going yet another day. Maybe I think of you more than you think of me, but that's unlikely, because I like you because you like me, and anyway, it doesn't matter much.

Does it??

William Parrish: Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived.

My Buddy--- read this well its meant for you

Losing a Confidant

"Friendships may not last. Friendships can lose importance and die gradually. Some friendships end abruptly with unresolved conflict. The worst enemy of friendships is change by one or both friends. There is usually pain with the loss of friendship fact, friendships end with pain and change"

I am losing one of my friends not by choice but by has not been conducive to progress forward with so much luggage around. At time I felt I have been more of a burden then a shoulder. Despite it being long distant, it was often nice to hear a voice once a while and meet up once a while and sms a lot. How ironic to think of the situation we are in now.... and how opposite things were not to long ago.

Guess sometimes life is ironic. I losing a friend today, and IÂ’m depressed. Its natural... Making and losing friends is all part of the process of growing up. We have all had experiences with our friends. We all take the experience of losing a friend and take that knowledge and put that effort towards our other friendships.

I am not sure what the next chapter but to my fren. Thank you for listening and being a rock. Let see what happen in the next chapter

Fustal - All about the heart - bloody

Futsal was great yesterday, got a knock on the ankle...heck aint a game for softies.... It was an uphill match 5 on 6 and we held the line well

I have to salute the 'korean' Tim, that bugger is a real kimakaze in playing and for the 1st time I was playing alongside him. Playing with a man less does have its disadvantages, but you could hear no one complaining... We fought hard and was losing 12-4...But we soldiered on. Effective we were playing well with Tim and I playing back leaving abang and Pok to marude upfront but they were not mobile players, heck almost half my age and they cant run as much as I can. Playing with lesser number of player requires heart. If you aint got it you can take a hike. For the 2nd continuous week, abang pulled out limping and making him a walking liability.

Every 50-50 ball we went for closing down and fighting hard. eventually it tool it toll on us but we did have FUN.

My ankle ...fucking hurts why coz I played wiht my heart and the keeper (without malice I hope) took me out at my ankles, saw a doc for 80 bucks but as my good fren would say Gambateh!! I played on hobbling a little but committed to the team

Reflection - maybe for just a minute

I need to reflect for a minute. How do we measure success? At the end of my life am I going to regret any amount of time I spent at the office, calling clients, having meeting, etc. Is that what really fulfills me? The ends justify the means they say. Juggling a fulltime job and a part time on the side lines can be quite compelling and at time down right frustrating. Aside from fatigue, mental fatigue and trying to juggle a life in balance, it really takes it toll on you. But you do it coz you need to earn that much.

Looking at the perspective of a housewife (based on mum) I really understand housewives I think. They work hard keeping a household together and, although they don't get paid, they are rich in moments, in memories, and cold in pain, hopefully they are appreciated by their children and, their husbands. They may be the only ones who really have their priorities in line.

Since entering the corporate world I have had having misgivings. Is this really for me? It is so hard to be so good at something but realize that is doesn't necessarily bring you joy. No matter when I was lecturing, managing, programming there was often the question, if this isn't right for me and I am good at it, what is right for me to do with my life? I am just blabbering some of the thoughts running through my head these days. Perhaps I am having them because I am always tired juggling two jobs and, therefore, trying to find satisfaction in my acheivements.

Right now the option is to provide. To provide the best and appropriate for those concerned. That the plan mate!!! Gambateh!!!

Liverpool Wins!!!

Liverpool stun Chelsea in season curtain-raiser!!!

Liverpool beat Chelsea 2-1 in the FA Community Shield at the Millennium Stadium on Sunday. Liverpool have not won the English championship since 1990, but sent a message to Chelsea and the rest of the Premiership hopefuls that they intend to be a force to be reckoned with this season.

Well Done KOPs!!!!

The week so far

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies with in us."

a good Thursday for me, its been a hetic week for me from the workout on sat working on the car on Sunday to Futsal and Badminton and working double shifts and hanging the pen (twice..well almost lol) it begun to take its toll on my body. Fever developing...

Coupled with the tightening of purse strings and lack of option of a short term loan, it has really began to hit me. The icing on the cake would surely be the mental scars

I have evolved to a certain extend of not caring, weather for the people of the house, internet or real fren. The fact of not caring stems from so many facts and events. So I think to myself time to let go and move forward. That way my mind is free to concentrate on other things, selfish as it may seem, it a working solution....

so fight the battles harder even if it makes u a little cold, care for the things that matters and walk away from battles that have no end.

Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.

Nokia Starlight Cinema

Kalai been bugging me to go for the Starlight Cinema with him, honestly I had a few person ask me to go along.

For 3 years from the time it was in Mont Kiara I been wanting to go, heck I would have loved to go alone, now its in Sentul Park. I fancy the idea of kicking back and watching the movie, reminds me of Coventry.

I dun know if I will go with the things happening around me. We shall see..

Badminton- Pushing the envelope ....

Badminton- Pushing the envelope especially when u get whacked

Badminton today was good. Had a good session to loosen up before the game dun know if it contributed or not. While warming up Jen decided to handicap me as his racquet whacked into my tricep. Damm it stung as the band formed on the muscle. Yes beneath the fat I do have muscle.

It was throbbing for a while but I was on fire as the game went on and one. I had never smashed and fought in a game that way and was pleased, but like I have always maintained for me its a learning curve, stopping careless mistakes, learning new techniques, reading the game better and most importantly having fun. I am a good loser but I get angry with my self when I know I can do better.

I enjoyed the game especially the last set as Jen playing opposite me poured it on and attack me. I remember 11-14 down 1st serve in their hand, my partner chanting saving energy for next game ( WTF??) I fought killing both their servers to life to fight another day. I juz smiled at my partner( "Aint over yet sonny" look on my face) fought back to 13-14. Though we lost I loved it.

Weddings and Funerals

Today a frens father in law died. My condolences. Died of old age and yet the doc tried to prolong his death by 6 hours. Go figure.

Couple of weddings comings up. Already 2 shortlisted and they are just frens, relatives coming up also and a long ago exgfren tied the knot. I do home I get an invite for that. (How much emptier can an empty wallet get?) Time for more part time assignments and side income

As a fren would advise "Gambateh!!!"

Wedding and Funerals
It’s an unfortunate fact that an unfortunate event brings people back together. But it’s fortunate that it does bring people back together, you know what I mean.

When I posted a blog long ago bout a death of Aids... I related what I said in the above paragraph to that.

Just a matter of time

Hot & Cold Friends

Hot and Cold Friends are the kind of people who are all matey and pally one minute and completely ignoring you the next. For example, you might be chilling out with your pal at Bisik and the next day, when you suggest hanging out again she answers “no” and swans of with another friend. It goes on like that and you may end up falling out or doing exactly the same thing back. lol. Some dont see it but there are many that just keep you for the reasons said above.

The same can be said for seasonal friends who get burnt out for seeing you too much. In life and especially in relationships moderation is important, friends, partners, girl friends what you come too close or stay too far it starts coming apart. Some can survive it some cant but then again, that is part and parcel of relationships.

Its simple it takes 2 hands to make it work, the simplicity is if it dun work, turn the other cheek, if it still dun work and you are not happy, move on and move forward. Dont be caugth in a vicious quicksand, trust me it aint worth it.

Chatting dun irritate

If real life is tough enough, internet chatting it supposed to be quite the opposite. It one the many avenues to share, explore, discuss and have fun. A place that is like a comfort zone for an individual for watever reason. No matter the chat is at home, office, coffeehouse or even over the phone its a zone.

There are a lot of good reasons to hate chatting. You can hate it because it doesn't work right. You can hate it because people pester you. You can hate it because you can't pester the people you want to pester when you want to pester them hahaha You can hate it because within the casual chatting environments most people are phonies or posers. You can hate it in the business environment because you are likely being spied on in casual chat. And you can hate it because it is just plain dumb.

Having said all that, there are a lot of people, like me who are pro-chatting. Chat, is great, because the access to someone is instant. You see them online. You ping them and ask them something and you get an immediate response.

When some people use chats to follow on an agenda, use the forum to drive a nail, to push a point, to irritate, to aggitate so when that happen nowadays (despite giving people chances) I just switch off the chat and walk away.

So enjoy life

Short circuit - A clarifying point

This a so-called big mouth engineer degree versus sifu.

What is Short Circuit

A short circuit (sometimes abbreviated to short or s/c) is an accidental low-resistance connection between two nodes of an electrical circuit that are meant to be at different voltages.


In circuit analysis, the term short circuit is used by analogy to designate a zero-impedence connection between two nodes. This forces the two nodes to be at the same voltage. In an ideal short circuit, this means there is no resistance and no voltage drop across the short. In simple circuit analysis, wires are considered to be shorts. In real circuits, the result is a connection of nearly zero impedance, and almost no resistance. In such a case, the current drawn is limited by the rest of the circuit.


A short circuit is to connect the positive and negative terminals of a battery together with a low-resistance conductor, like a wire. With low resistance in the connection, a high current flows, causing the cell to deliver a large amount of energy in a short time. (See also:

Ohm's law, power).

In electrical devices, unintentional short circuits are usually caused when a wire's insulation breaks down, or when another conducting material (such as water) is introduced, allowing charge to flow along a different path than the one intended.

MY style of explaining

Short Circuit: If electricity has a choice between travelling through

a device (high resistance) or a wire (low resistance) it will always choose the wire! And because it can travel much faster with low resistance, electricity creates more heat in a short circuit. If you feel your batteries getting hot, you've got a short circuit! Disconnect a wire to the battery a.s.a.p. because the batteries will quickly be ruined.

For the record wiht my limited engineering knowledge, air kenot short circuit. 1000 apologies sifu

Another one for the weekend - one I can relate to

"John Milton: There's this beautiful girl just fucked me forty ways from Sunday... we're done, she's walking to the bathroom, she's trying to walk, she turns... she looks... it's me. Not the Trojan army just fucked her. Little ol' me. She gets this look on her face like: "How the hell did that happen?""

Mr.Jen.... hows this for a home run!!!

The Hunt for the Red October

Part of my movie weekend selection. A gripping lovely movie and book I could never get bored of.

Based on the Best Selling novel by Tom Clancy this film tells the story of Captain Marko Ramius, the skipper of the Soviet Union's newest nuclear sub. Jack Ryan of the CIA gets involved in a tense, tangled hunt for this sub, when Ramius defects, taking the "Red October" with him. The story is an action packed techno-thriller.

This movie is not entirely true to Tom Clancy's vision and book. Tom Clancy is an American superpatriot and nationalist. He loves to gush about the superiority of the American military establishment and its high technology. This movie puts a more sympathetic face on the Russians and the commoner's point of view. Sean Connery plays a very likable Russian Submarine Commander. Of course, Sean Connery is always going to steal the show in any movie. He's kind of like the John Wayne of the last twenty five years. But the supporting actors are also engaging as well. Scott Glenn, Fred Thompson, and James Earl Jones all do very well at commanding our attention.

Among the parts that I loved in the movie... between Ryan and Jordan's Jeffrey Pelt where Ryan sticks his neck out and Pelt pounces, telling the analyst that if he believes Ramius is defecting, he should go out there and try to collect him. Pelt's no humanitarian, understand, he just wants to keep his options open: "Listen, I'm a politician, which means I'm a cheat and a liar, and when I'm not kissing babies I'm stealing their lollipops." hahaha

"The Hunt for Red October" is one of those rare thrillers that manages to keep you interested and excited the entire time. Not many movies today come close to being on-par with this. This is a classic thriller that keeps you asking for more. It has great acting and directing, and it will keep you on your feet the entire time.


Capt. Bart Mancuso: [after hearing Jones's findings] Have I got this straight, Jonesy? A $40 million computer tells you you're chasing an earthquake, but you don't believe, and you come up with this on your own?
Seaman Jones: Yes, sir.
Capt. Bart Mancuso: Including all the navigation maps?
Seaman Jones: Sir, I-I've got all the...
Capt. Bart Mancuso: Relax, Jonesy. You sold me.

Captain Ramius: There's one thing you haven't yet asked me: why?
Jack Ryan: Well, I thought you would tell me when you felt ready.
Captain Ramius: Well, there are those who believe that we should attack the United States first. Settle everything in one moment. Red October was built for that purpose.

Poltical Officer Ivan Putin: [Reading from a book belonging to Ramius, quoting the Bible] And the seventh angel poured his bowl into the air, and a voice cried out from heaven, saying: "It is done." A man with your responsibilities reading about the end of the world. And what's this? "I am become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds."
Captain Ramius: It is an ancient Hindu text, quoted by an American.
Poltical Officer Ivan Putin: An American?
Captain Ramius: Mmm. He invented the atomic bomb, and was later accused of being a communist.

The Apprentice Foreman

hahaha!! This is one episode I wont get fired from so they are stuck with me!!!!

How this came about ... Jen has always been offering me the ooportunity to work on my car at his garage, way back from even before his daughters birthday. The distance, the inexperience, the humility of going there was causing a lot of hinderance not to mention the tightening of the wallet. Push come to shove, my quiet, but draining weekend (ahhhhhhh) turned into a fun Sunday after some work I headed to his place bout lunch time.

We started working on the car, Project Nissan Sunny. Like the series American chopper there are times when the Sifu must step in and there are times you must step up to the place. Without the fear of being blur, I asked the questions to then my knowledge bout car maintenance and servicing would grow. I did hands on a various number of things and there are times I would ask that I do some of the tasks.

We worked on the following, Window Washer and pump, the air-condition, the wiring and the radiator fan. The Window washer pump ( I owe Jen one set and Jen owes his dad 1 set) was services , rehosed and being an old car. The mechanics of resetting the nozzle and flushing the nozzle was not an easy task. The finished result was a success.

The aircond was toughie, learned how to actually service the aircond, vacuuming it, the importance of refrigeration oil and getting it to work again. Jen, I did not forget to put the window up today morning hahaha and yes I felt the cold air. I did not dare ask Jen bout taking pics of me working on the car, with the fingers all greasy.

I got under the car, into the car, learn how to use the proper tools. Tube cutting, flaring etc etc Got all greasy arrhggh arrghhh arrghg (ala Tim - Home Improvement)

The wiring was not an easy task. We had to call the Sifu's Sifu. The Sifu's Sifu landed with manual for the car, the frigging schematics for the wiring the cables.

Salute the Sifu's Sifu

A break for tea to recharge and refresh we got back to work on the radiator fan, we noted that the bypass was done on the fan and it made it on from the onset instead of operating only when the temperature rose.

We finished, tired drained and beaming with pride of the task we accomplished...headed back to Jen's Place....
