yummyyyyyyyyyy

Jnr Vadai goes to school

Well its time to go to Standard 1

The daily, weekly buildup for him to go to school is here. He has been exciting telling me daily bout his school, and the registration, we picked out his uniforms and all and it cost $$$$$


Well… i used to dread the first day of school… or rather school itself… I remember mami taking me to school lining up and cry and vomiting and stuff but pleasant memories. Reading the Ikrar and rukun negara and coming home after school, What a blast!


Jnr Vadai tried on his uniform every other day and tomorrow is his registration. Hope to get some pics of the digital cam!!

An another year passed

It is man’s ability to remember that sets us apart. We are the only species concerned with past. Our memories give us voice and bear witness to history, so that others might learn; so they might celebrate our triumphs and be warned of our failures

So were words uttered, in reflection I remember, in pain I remember, in joy I remember, in sadness I remember, this year was an interesting year I have been looking at my past supporting my past which at the same time trying ot build my future. Its not an easy balancing game


Turning point
Ironically the defining moment was the gun point situation.

I started off the year with a couple of deaths some expected some unexpected but slow but surely life does go on. The that was hardest to take was V. Still, we move forward.

We all say it year after year, but I can't believe the year is almost over. It's ironic, and sometimes in dis belief how time goes past so fast when at time we are just sitting and time seem to drag on forever. Just yesterday I was lamenting to Jen what a slow day its been.

Do I have resolutions for next year? Nope.

Happy New Year all

This aint the way to go - Condolences



RAWALPINDI, Pakistan, 28 December 2007 — Pakistani opposition leader and former premier Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in a gun-and-suicide attack yesterday at an election rally in a Rawalpindi park plunging the country into turmoil less than two weeks before national elections.

Benazir, 54, had just addressed an election rally at Liaquat Bagh (Garden) when a bomber shot her in the neck and blew himself up, killing at least 20 people and injuring scores of others. Hours later riots erupted across the country.

Time to fuck Vista for a while

M in a mood to fuck so vista is me best option!!!


Y V should F**K Vista


1. You don't actually need it -- Vista doesn't do anything you can't already do with XP.

2. Cost $$ -- You already have XP, and alternatives like Linux are free. If you really want to throw money away, go give it to a local charity.

3. On that note, it's outrageously overpriced -- at least in Australia. Australians are paying hundreds of dollars more for their copies than in the US. In fact, it's cheaper for Australians to buy Vista direct by mail order from the States. If you think Microsoft Australia is reaming us, vote with your wallet.

4. Upgrading hardware -- XP was demanding at release, but Vista more so. If you have an older machine that struggles with XP at the best of times.

5. Driver support -- Key hardware like video and sound is crippled at the moment

6. Applications that don't work -- there's been plenty of coverage about applications that won't work without a vendor update. These include anti-virus, backup and security software such as those from Symantec, Sophos and ilk; CD and DVD burning tools like the suite from Nero need updated versions to work; and even basic disk management and partitioning tools such as Paragon's Hard Disk Manager are awaiting an update for Vista to be compatible. How many more will fail as Vista enters mainstream? Even Firefox has issues with Vista.

7. It's a big fat target -- with a new and untested in the global wild architecture, virus and malware authors are going to work overtime exploiting the holes Microsoft missed.

8. The draconian license -- somehow, Microsoft has forgotten that it built its business from products that empowered its customers, not hampered them.

Men Are Just Happier People--



What do you expect from such simple creatures? Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack. You can be President. You can never be pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water park. Car mechanics tell you the truth.


The world is your urinal. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky. You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. Wedding dress~$5000. Tux rental~$100. People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them. The occasional well-rendered belch is practically expected. New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood all the time. Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about tanks.



A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend. Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough. You almost never r have strap problems in public. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.



Everything on your face stays its original colour. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You only have to shave your face and neck. You can play with toys all your life. Your belly usually hides your big hips. One wallet and one pair of shoes one colour for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can "do" your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing a moustache. You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25 minutes.

The shakes

Mohinder: [ending voiceover] For all his bluster, it is the sad province of Man that he cannot choose his triumph. He can only choose how he will stand when the call of destiny comes. Hoping that he'll have the courage to answer.


We all value our lives, the favor opening question of any insurance agent "Dear Mr. Vadai how much do you value your life? " We all value our lives but no one will add a $$$$ value to their lives coz actually there is no value that can be attached. Me I dun bother with a value, I have my short terms goals and my long terms goals.

I never really put a value on my own life, a few days ago I was able to see just what kind of price I put on my own livelihood.

Staring down the barrel of a gun have many thought racing in your head.. How many times in movies we have rehearsed scenes like this and the hero get away form the bad guys. Here is was facing a gun man and his accomplice forced to make a decision. No I was no Rambo, I was not trying to be a hero but I wanted to be alive. Dragged out of the car and robbed clean of all valuables and left there can be pretty ugly experience. Having a knife slit into your jeans to fish valuables out does leave you on the edge. I laid low and hoped it would all be over soon.


After they left, I had the shakes and it was bad. took me a while sitting down there to recover as a patrol car passed by much later.

I knew there were many loose end to tie up, set out to do so. After all we have to move forward


Ahmed Ibn Fahdlan: Merciful Father, I have squandered my days with plans of many things. This was not among them. But at this moment, I beg only to live the next few minutes well. For all we ought to have thought, and have not thought; all we ought to have said, and have not said; all we ought to have done, and have not done; I pray thee God for forgiveness.

Rolling Stones - Paint It Black (2006) Biggest Bang



Quote - I think it is just simply a statement on the state of youth at the time. They had very little to look forward too. The men were being forced into an unpopular war and the girls were being left lonely. Hence, paint it black, so everyone feels as I do.

Quote - I think that this is basically about someone who just plain out lost it all and feels he has nothing left. He knows nothing will ever be the same as it was and faces this by having everything dark

All I want for Xmas

Staring down the barrel

Its not everyday you get to stare down the barrel of a gun, when someone is trying to rob you. futher to that getting robbed twice a month is not party either but sadly yours truly faced this and walked out poorer, but ALIVE.

God know why but such is life and I can only be thankful, its amazing to get robbed twice a month but this takes the cake, no phone, money gone and left high and dry by the road side off a busy highway is not a scenario I wish to relive again.

How thursday went about

hmmmmm my Thursdays was actually quiet interesting and varied after spending Wed night celebrating the farewell with friends. Brian rashwan who got the most of my ribbing suggested a lunch time movie. So off we went for a tamil movie. The movie was Billa, a remake , so so story but chicks were good looking...hehe




Before that went for a drink which turned out to be an awesome lunch for 2, me and rashwan really enjoyed and it been some time since I had indian spice hehehe. It was awesome indian food lunch near by and the fish was awesome definitely have to come back there again.















Check out the fish





The chicks however for the lack of weight int he movie came out with revealing outfits that kept the attention going, one of them was a Lora Croft wanna be but failed to deliver, the only thing they had were sunglasses ( a rack) almost throughout the movie haha






















The icing on the cake was Pint Beer chilled later inthe evening at HRC 4 nice glasses of them and 2 came courtesy of a hotel guest from Singapore.

Conversation shifted from politics to soccer (she is a KOPPER) to food, later adjourned to Crossroad where the band played one of my my fav song and dedicated it to me ( will blog that later) for today it will be Crossroad and then a farewell to the Bisik man



Slurp Shepherd's Pie!! at the Office

Shepherd's pie is a traditional English dish that consists of a bottom layer of minced (ground) meat covered with mashed potato and then a layer of cheese.

The mince is traditionally lamb (hence Shepherd), and the dish was often made with meat left bla bla bla bla


All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, and whallop

Bakit Ngayong Ka Lang







Bakit ngayon ka lang
Bakit ngayon kung kailan ang aking puso'y
Mayron nang laman
Sana'y nalaman ko
Na darating ka sa buhay
'Di sana'y naghihtay ako

Refrain:
Ikaw sana ang aking yakap-yakap
Ang iyong kamay lagi ang aking hawak
At hindi kanya

Chorus:
Bakit ngayon ka lang dumating sa buhay ko
Pilit binubuksan ang sarado ko ng puso
Ikaw ba ay nararapat sa akin
At siya ba'y dapat ko nang limutin
Nais kong malaman
Bakit ngayon ka lang dumating

Refrain 2:
Ikaw sana ang aking yakap-yakap
Ang iyong kamay lagi ang aking hawak
At hindi kanya
At hindi kanya

Chorus:
Bakit ngayon ka lang dumating sa buhay ko
Pilit binubuksan ang sarado ko ng puso
Ikaw ba ay nararapat sa akin
At siya ba'y dapat ko nang limutin
Nais kong malaman
Bakit ngayon ka lang dumating





ENGLISH TRANSLATION

Why only now....
Why only is it now that my heart needs?
It now has found out.....

I wish that I'd found out
That you would come into my life
Then I would have waited

Pre-chorus:

You were supposed to have been the one for me to hug
Your hand always for me to hold instead of hers

Chorus:

Why only now....
Is it that you arrive in my life
I'm forcing to open my closed heart
You are the only one for me
Even though I want to forget you
I want to know...why is is now that you arrive in my life

******************************************
Original Tagalog Lyrics
******************************************

Nu'ng isilang ka sa mundong ito
Laking tuwa ng magulang mo
At ang kamay nila, ang iyong ilaw
At ang nanay at tatay mo'y
'Di malaman ang gagawin
Minamasdan pati pagtulog mo.

At sa gabi'y napupuyat ang iyong nanay
Sa pagtimpla ng gatas mo
At sa umaga nama'y kalong ka ng iyong amang
Tuwang-tuwa sa iyo.

Ngayon ng malaki ka na
Nais mo'y maging malaya
'Di man sila payag walang magagawa
Ikaw nga ay biglang nagbago
Naging matigas ang iyong ulo
At ang payo nila'y sinuway mo.

Di mo man lang inisip na
Ang kanilang ginagawa'y para sa iyo
'Pagkat ang nais mo'y masunod ang layaw mo
"Di mo sila pinapansin.

Nagdaan pa ang mga araw
At ang landas mo'y naligaw
Ikaw ay nalulong sa masamang bisyo
At ang una mong nilapitan
Ang iyong inang lumuluha
At ang tanong "Anak, ba't ka nagkaganyan?"

Pagsisisi at sa isip mo'y nalaman mong
Ikaw'y nagkamali.
Pagsisisi at sa isip mo'y nalaman mong
Ikaw'y nagkamali.

English Lyrics
******************************************



When you were born into this world
Your mom and dad saw a dream fulfilled
Dream come true
The answer to their prayers

You were to them a special child
Gave 'em joy every time you smiled
Each time you cried
They're at your side to care

Child, you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give
To see you through and God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you here

How many seasons came and went
So many years have now been spent
For time ran fast
And now at last you're strong

Now what has gotten over you
You seem to hate your parents too
Do speak out your mind
Why do you find them wrong

Child you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give
To see you through and God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you near

And now your path has gone astray
Child you ain't sure what to do or say
You're so alone
No friends are on your side

And child you now break down in tears
Let them drive away your fears
Where must you go
Their arms stay open wide

Child you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give
To see you through
And God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you here

Child you don't know
You'll never know how far they'd go
To give you all their love can give
To see you through and God it's true
They'd die for you, if they must, to see you here

Tour of Duty - Paint it Black



Paint It Black Lyrics
Artist(Band):The Rolling Stones



I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby it just happens every day

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and must have it painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facin' up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you

If I look hard enough into the settin' sun
My love will laugh with me before the mornin' comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn the head until my darkness goes

Hmm, hmm, hmm,...

I wanna see your face, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black
Yeah!

Aha, Aha, Aha, ...

Nickelback Rockstar Music Video (uncensored)

I want to be screaming this song


You know sometimes good or bad, up or down, right or wrong, you get that feel good song and you wanna trash it without giveing a care or damm to anyone around you... then THIS ROCKS

yOU COULD STAND IN THE CENTER OF THE ROAD SINGING THIS OR FACING A HAIL STORM... YOU JUST WANNA SING IT... READ THE LYRICS






NICKLEBACK
"Rockstar"

I'm through with standing in line
to clubs we'll never get in
It's like the bottom of the ninth
and I'm never gonna win
This life hasn't turned out
quite the way I want it to be

I want a brand new house
on an episode of Cribs
And a bathroom I can play baseball in
And a king size tub big enough
for ten plus me

I'll need a credit card that's got no limit
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it
Gonna join the mile high club
At thirty-seven thousand feet

I want a new tour bus full of old guitars
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard
Somewhere between Cher and
James Dean is fine for me

I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
I'd even cut my hair and change my name

[CHORUS]
'Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat
And we'll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger's
Gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny
With her bleach blond hair

Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

I wanna be great like Elvis without the tassels
Hire eight body guards that love to beat up assholes
Sign a couple autographs
So I can eat my meals for free

I think I'm gonna dress my ass
with the latest fashion
Get a front door key to the Playboy mansion
Gonna date a centerfold that loves to
blow my money for me

I'm gonna trade this life
For fortune and fame
I'd even cut my hair
And change my name

'Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We'll all stay skinny 'cause we just won't eat
And we'll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger's
Gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny
With her bleach blond hair
And we'll hide out in the private rooms
With the latest dictionary and
today's who's who
They'll get you anything
with that evil smile
Everybody's got a
drug dealer on speed dial
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

I'm gonna sing those songs
that offend the censors
Gonna pop my pills
from a pez dispenser
When they ask why I drink all day
I'll say because I can

I'll get washed-up singers writing all my songs
Lip sync em every night so I don't get 'em wrong
Then listen to the fans tell me how damn good I am

I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
I'd even cut my hair and change my name


[CHORUS]

This is an uncle that from time to time I go to service and repair my car. Check out the signboard, that how old this workshop is, His uncle started the shop and he continued.

A nice legacy and the signboard is antique

They Won the Battle.



For the second season running, a close-range goal in front of the Kop proved enough to give Manchester United a 1-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield.

REDS 0 - 1 MAN UTD: THE REPORT

Liverpool have fallen to their first league defeat of the season at Anfield after a first half goal from Carlos Tevez gave Manchester United a fortunate 1-0 win.

Just like in the same fixture last season, Rafa's side dominated their much vaunted opponents, but they succumbed to a sucker punch from Tevez on the stroke of half time.

Liverpool created most of the game's best chances and United twice cleared off the line, but the defending champions stole the points in one of their few attacks.



And the Gafffer says - Commenting on the 1-0 defeat, Benitez didn't feel there was much between the two teams on the day.

"We didn't create that many chances and they didn't have many opportunities either," added the Reds boss.

"In the first half we create two good chances but we didn't take them, and they created one chance and scored. We made a mistake for their goal but you need to take your chances. If you do that you will be in a very good position."

A lunch treat

Its not everyday that you suppliers call on you and take you out to lunch so this was a 1st ina long time and he took us to a nice place, being the only guy in the group of a party of 10 it was kind of nice ot chaperon all the ladies in the office.

The place is unique, cozy and enchanting with the flora and fauna

There is an actual bar here and an awesome list of wines (mental note much come here after pay day)

The food was a delicious serving I had prawns for starters and a local dish


Over all is awesome, worth going for lunch and dinner
