Slow down the Clock IPTC

One of the biggest challenges when you ave to turn around with your back to the wall. Undertaking an event in less then 2-3 weeks with no basic setup is both lunacy and #$%$#%.

But looking back it seem this is what we thrive on, time and time again we shoot our selves in the foot and procrastinate (sometimes) and then grab and run. Thanks goodness that we come out on top all the time so far but its just a matter fo time before we crash.

So 3 week from ground zero to to this finish products which included a corporate make over, new logos, new profiles, new layouts new this new that.

Above that there was 2 outstation stips and the Big Kahuna (BK) was away so most approvals vis emails. Try coordinating that wiht 6 subsidary companies.

The headmaster (thats me) as appointed by the Big Kahuna it self was used to his but his co partner was new on the block so it was fun.

I like when we finally did the final briefing which I introduced my self as Vadai the guy who will be helping behind the scene and the BK says what Vadai mean he is the headmaster and A-Z will be under my running, I chuckle saying this time I got a whip. In the end it s double edges sword where I will not be liked for what I do but the exhibition and conference is above everyone else.

In sumarry it was a great exhibitino with uniforms and response and leads. Did I have fun? yeah but was down at time ,( 2 deaths took place during that time one of it on the opening day of the exhibition) was exhausted but Vadai delivers

This movie has caught my eye - coming soon

Nothing But The Truth is a story centers on a female newspaper reporter (Kate Beckinsale) who outs a CIA agent and is imprisoned for refusing to reveal her source.David Schwimmer (Friends) plays Beckinsale's husband and Angela Bassett is the supportive editor in chief at the Washington newspaper where Beckinsale’s character works. Actor Noah Wyle portrays the lawyer placed in charge of defending her. The cast includes Matt Dillon as the prosecutor, Vera Farmiga as the CIA agent, and Alan Alda as the attorney who tries to free the reporter from jail.

This movie is parallels the case of Valerie Plame, whose status as a CIA agent was exposed in the media after her husband, Ambassador Joe Wilson, wrote a New York Times op-ed piece charging the Bush administration with manipulating intelligence to justify the invasion of Iraq.

Amongst the actors and actress I just wanna yell out a good one in this movie ALAN ALDA!!

Filming (in Memphis, Tennessee) began in 2007 for release on December 19, 2008.

Who said we cant be funny


1. My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife:
Marrying you has screwed up my life.

2. I see your face when I am dreaming.
That's why I always wake up screaming.

3. Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;
This describes everything you are not.

4. Love may be beautiful, love may be bliss,
But I only slept with you 'cause I was pissed.

5. I thought that I could love no other
-- that is until I met your brother.

6. Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you.
But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead, the sugar bowl's
empty and so is your head.

7. I want to feel your sweet embrace;
But don't take that paper bag off your face.

8. I love your smile, your face, and your eyes
Damn, I'm good at telling lies!

9. My love, you take my breath away.
What have you stepped in to smell this way?

10. My feelings for you no words can tell,
Except for maybe 'Go to hell.'

11. What inspired this amorous rhyme?
Two parts vodka, one part lime.

We just dont fucking learn....

My condolences to all family members of victims. As if on cue all the politicians start singing the same old tune. I was at Highland Towers, I saw the carnage it left an impact... People just dont learn... they use political influences, money and do this crap.

Mati Katak

The Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi yesterday lamented that “Malaysians never want to learnt from past experiences” – “They want good views while developers only seek to profit; but no one takes safety and soil stability into consideration”.

To Quote Lim Kit Siang

Conspicuously absent from Abdullah’s blame list are the various government agencies and authorities who should be even more culpable in giving approvals or closing an eye to dangerous hillside developments and in totally ignoring the lessons of the Highland Towers tragedy 15 years ago.

To Quote Dr Benjamin George
“The politicians will climb up their helicopters and say all development must stop.
“There will be a stop-work order for two months but in the third month the tractors will start work again.

“I have survived long enough to see all this nonsense repeated,” he said, adding that landslides would happen every few years.

When asked how he felt about the latest tragedy, Dr George – the Highland Towers owners and residents committee chairman who had to abandon his home at Block B of the Highland Towers – said he was sad, angry and disappointed.

“Imagine if it were your father, mother or child in there,” he said.

Too many deaths


My Brother-in-law's mother, passing away suddenly in Seremban, a gentle kind lady that could never be replaced would always love to hear her call my name

Hema who passed away suddenly... due to the stupidity of Terrorism.. a courageous strong willed who fought many battles in her life and I admired a lot.

Dr. Yoges in an act courage to shield her family did something any mother would would not think twice to do. In person a simple caring human being

All gone to soon

Gone too soon - Datuk Ho Koh Chye

Shocking, sad and numb, as I heard the passing of this great man.... Too many articles, too many blog have written about his greatness, his simple mindedness his step by step understanding of issues, his wealth of knowledge, his friendship, and on and on and on.

For me he is gone too soon. god speed, god bless

To the family my condolences

To my Brother Scud and Sis Peacock, heartiest congratulations on getting hitched

I think I am gonna practise my singing

O.A.R. - Shattered (Turn This Car Around)

O.A.R. - Shattered (Turn the Car Around) Lyrics

In a way, I need a change
From this burnout scene
Another time, another town
Another everything
But it’s always back to you

Stumble out, in the night
From the pouring rain
Made the block, sat and thought
There’s more I need
It’s always back to you

But I’m good without ya
Yeah, I’m good without you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break let me make my own pattern
All that it takes is some time but I’m shattered
I always turn the car around

I had no idea that the night
Would take so damn long
Took it out, on the street
While the rain still falls
Push me back to you

But I’m good without ya
Yeah, I’m good without you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break let me make my own pattern
All that it takes is some time but I’m shattered
I always turn the car around

Give it up, give it up, baby
Give it up, give it up, now

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around
All that I feel is the realness I’m faking
Taking my time but it’s time that I’m wasting
Always turn the car around

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around

Don’t wanna turn that car around
I gotta turn this thing around

i think we all interpret songs to what we need them to be for each of us, that's whymusic is so amazing... and i think this song is about a person, boy or girl. who can't make up their mind. And they try to figure things out, and they take BREAKS from reality, but how many til they shatter?

and maybe these breaks are from another person, maybe it seems like a good plan...
"All that I feel is the realness I'm faking
Taking my time but it's time that I'm wasting
Always turn the car around"
and that, is that, its wasted time, in the end he regrets driving away, because it's simply wasted time to run from the one you love. [and you have to love them if you always end up back thinking about them, wanting them.]

but in the end he always ends up where he belongs, right? because he turns the car around...

Star Trek 2009

Its gonna be a lovely summer in 2009

When I 1st read bout ST2009 coming back i was not too thrilled till I saw the cast lineup for it Yippie

Star Trek - May 2009 chronicles the early, post Star Fleet academy, pre-Star Trek The Original Series adventures of the iconic crew of the Star Ship Enterprise. Directed by J.J. Abrahms (Lost, Cloverfield, Fringe)

With a cast of relative silver screen newbies. The exception being Winona Ryder who plays Spock’s Human mother, a role played on television and in films by Jane Wyatt. Many of these actors don’t ring a bell so I’ll list the Enterprise crew members with the actors playing them as well as some films/TV you might have seen them in. Then I have photo that shows the new actors juxtaposed with the old. I’ll quiz you on this tomorrow so take good notes.

From Left to Right

Mr. Spock - Played by American actor Zachary Quinto (Best known as the villan “Sylar” from NBC’s Heroes, he already has the eyebrows going for him)

Pavel Andreievich Chekov - Played by Russian born American actor Anton Yelchin (An up and coming young actor, I was really pleased by his performance as the young kidnap victim in Alpha Dog).

Lt. Uhura - Played by American actress Zoe Saldana (Queens New York native of Dominican and Puerto Rican descent, Zoe Saldana has several small roles in TV as well as Pirates of the Carribbean: At World’s End and Drumline plus she’s freaking hot).

James Tiberius Kirk - Played by American actor Chris Pine (was in a bunch of shitty romantic comedies like The Princess Diaries 2, however his television appearances include some quality stuff such as CSI and Six Feet Under).

Montgomery Scott aka “Scotty” - Played by British actor Simon Pegg (star of Sean of the Dead, Superfuzz, and The Office -UK)

Hikaru Sulu - Played by Korean American actor John Cho (co-starred as Harold from the stoner cult comedy Harold and Kumar go to White Castle)

Dr. Leonard McCoy aka “Bones” - Played by New Zealand actor Karl Urban (Chronicles of Riddick In The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he played Eomer of Rohan. He also appeared in The Bourne Supremecy) He reminds me of young David Gilmore for some reason.

Quality Time

I missed going out to places like this, especially alone... watch the world go by as you sit back and watch the fountain...chilling back with your pint and ..........

My personal Masseuse

I would like a masseuse and lo behold I was offered complimentary services......So coming back after a tiring day, my darling Junior Vadai says to me come I massage you leg.... no this is someone whose definition of massage is chopping grabbing massaging hard etc etc ... but I was all smile watching him trying to easy the tiredness off..... not if only I had a glass of wine to go with this


The usual halla-bu-loo bout being packed like sardines from KL Sentral is an accepted norm.... unlike TP who had the opportunity to blast the MD of KTM not many of us are blessed with such chances so we que up

Lo behold a empty train read again EMPTY showed up and we all were relieved to get a seat. and you could choose where to sit, no ppl instructing masuk.. masuk dalam lagi ( non erotic of course)

My Next Project with Junior Vadai

time to get this going and hopefully see an end result before the end of the year

any advise is welcomed

Office Relocation Re-assignment - Rewarding the workers

So when the whole project was completed I treated my team which included Junior Vadai at Bangkok Connection (old Bisik) and yes we had beer

He was a bit taken aback when he say me giving a friendly hug to aunty Anisha(old timer) but he warmed up to her and yes I bought the team a round of drinks and dinner was on me... the one to enjoy it the most was Junior Vadai hehehe

Office Relocation Re-assignment - Junior Vadai Comes to Daddy's playground

Junior Vadai Comes to Daddy's playground

Over the past few weekend we have been having our office expansion, relocation and reassignment of furniture. Especially with the huge surplus of furniture pouring out of our Sham Alam Office it was time to distribute the wealth.

My assistant was Junior Vadai who was more then happy to chip in and see where Senior Vadai office was and having fun along the way, yeah that means getting sweaty and jumping off chair and pushing chair and climbing the tables and carrying tools.

Of course we did have professional help lol

Time for Tyre Rotation

Yeah the car just passed the 10k milestone and once again its time for Tyre rotation.

Yeah the jalopy is doing an average 1500km per month sheesh but a nice jalopy in it... I do get lucky in it a few times lol

While many people are capable of rotating their own tyres, it is quicker, easier and safer to let a professional do it for you un less your someone like my brother Jen... he will start.... "Machan.....".
Your vehicle's owner's manual will specify the proper rotation pattern and schedule for your vehicle. If a specific schedule is not indicated, it is a good rule of thumb to rotate your tyres every 10,000 km's. Go do it
