new babe in the house...

I've been bugging my old man for years now to change his car. He currently drives a 1997 Peugeot 406 with about 70 odd thousand KMs on it. It was a babe when it came out but as years went by and with all the new cars coming out every other month, it was only obvious for our attention to divert. As he was retired and also does not use the car much, he didn't really want to waste money. I'm not sure how but I guess all the bugging must have worked because he just made a booking for the 2006 Honda Civic 2.0 Sport.

Woo hoo. It'll be ready in maximum 6 months time but expected to be much sooner. We decided on the Pearl Red Habanero (pictured above) which surprisingly is the least liked color. Good in the sense the car will come delivered faster plus there won't be many around. Hehe. Although thats what I thought with my car but before I knew it, the color became the most popular. Sigh. Guess people are reluctant till its seen on the roads.

Now I'm all excited and its not even mine. Can't wait to get the new babe in the house. Think I might just give my old man my car. Its smaller after all and better for him to handle. LOL. Alright I better get back to work. Toodles folks!

new toy...

Yay, just got myself a new gadget. A brand new 'flashed' Ice Blue Nintendo DS Lite. I know I know, I just sold off my Sony PSP. Well after careful consideration I realised this is the right portable thingy for me. I hope this time it lasts as well. One of the most important factors is that most of the games can be downloaded for free. Hehe. If you get my drift. At this moment I have about 400 odd games given with the system. So you can imagine the excitement. Doubt I'll ever need to spend money on this baby anymore except for may more memory cards. LOL.

So far I've played about 5 games and am happy with my selection. Don't think I plan to sell it anytime soon. Hehe. Hope never actually. As long as there is a download available I should be a happy camper. Anyways time to get back to my games. Toodles.

bye bye psp...

Sigh. Its funny how things work out. I was so eager to get my Sony PSP that I took months to research it and went about looking for good deals. Now not only 2 months after purchasing the system I have sold it. With a lost of about RM200. Looks more like I rented a unit for 2 months. LOL. After getting it I realised it just wasn't what I was looking for. The games were too time intensive plus the unit was too fragile. I didn't use it for the movies or music which was a waste. I'm not saying its a useless system but more of it just wasn't right for me. I wanted something portable, light with fun/short/cheesy games that I can play without thinking too much. Plus I wanted it just for the games which sadly was lacking under the PSP. The games rolled out were just ported stuff from Sony PS2. Nothing original came out. I also found it hard to maintain the system. The games were just too freaking expensive. Thankfully I managed to offload it before its value dropped.

It was fun while it lasted...=(

good first run...

Boy was it a tiring day yesterday. We were at the start by 530am and was 3rd in row for the treasure hunt. All 4 of us were pumped with excitement. We looked like drug addicts after a fix. Cars started to trickle in soon after and before you know it, the place was packed. I couldn't believe my eyes as 280 cars lined up. I think there were about 1000 participants in all roaming about munching on some breakfast and drinking coffee. After a short briefing the race was on at 730am.

There were 2 legs. The first was pretty easy. We just had to get to 4 locations of various sponsors and get our form chopped. After that we had to solve 1 riddle for the first treasure. We sped through that as if the cops were on our ass. Manage to accomplish everything within an hour. Then it was Leg 2. Thats when all hell broke loose. We had a total of 30 questions ranging from anagrams to riddles to direct translations. The idea was to drive to certain locations according to our tulip (driver) notes and find signs that are related to our answers. We had to pinpoint the exact sign and right down the full details. Any form of difference is a straight zero. Sounds easy enough but it was no walk in the park. We were breaking down by the 3rd question. The lack of sleep didn't help either. Plus the damn questions were HARD! Many of the questions we just guessed on the answers as it seemed right and there was a sign board on it. Surprisingly we those correct and the ones we thought we nailed we got wrong. LOL. I'm proud to say that for our first ever hunt we only got 6 wrong.

The hunt ended around 2pm. We managed to reach just 7 minutes before the allocated time slot. This too because of one of our crew who forgot to fill in a handful of questions plus spelling a few more wrong. Arrggghh. That pissed me off big time. I would have torn his freaking head off if I could. After all that rushing and ensuring we got it done right, one nut has to spoil it. The delay did cost us a place or 2 as well, so you can imagine the frustration. At the end of it all we were the 54th car out of 260. Something I was rather proud of although I was aiming for Top 50. If we only got one more question right we would have been in that category. Thankfully Top 110 cars got something to take home. We won a Phillips Portable CD Player each. Not something I want but at least something worthwhile.

All in all it was a great adventure. There were excitement, anger, frustration, joy and many other moments. I think it would have made for a great documentary. LOL. Can't wait for the next Treasure Hunt. Hope this time we break into the Top 20s. =)

We got a whole load of pictures taken but none uploaded yet. Will post them once I receive em'. Cheeers.

Update: Sadly out of 260 odd pictures I could only grab the 3 below which was worth posting. Sigh. What a waste of a photographer?!

the 1000 odd participants...

the Gundens!

damn you look familiar??

inconsiderate bitches...

Arggghhhh some people just pisses me off! Today during Da Vinci Code (which is a great movie I must add), I was seated next to this lady who had a runny nose, sore throat and a terrible cough. Now who the fuck goes to the movies sick as a dog. Its so freaking inconsiderate. Throughout the movie (2.5 hours I must add) she was coughing and sneezing away. Not even bothered about those surrounding her or the others in the cinema. I'm not really bothered about the noise she makes but the damn contamination. If you are so sick, stay the fuck home and get better. Not take MC and go catch a movie. Arrggghhh. Wish I could just bitch slap that lady.

Think I'll hit the sack now since we have an early morning tommorrow. Wish us luck folks!

movie binge...

Its been awhile but I'll be going for my movie binge tommorrow. Had to take leave for the Treasure Hunt on Saturday and since I have my whole morning and afternoon free, what better way to spend it. Gonna watch Mission Impossible 3 and the infamous Da Vinci Code. Hopefully I'll be able to get up since the first movie starts at 11am and I only knock out around 4am. I'm also praying that the cinemas won't be packed since Da Vinci Code opened today. Heard most shows are fully booked for the next handful of days. Guess all the publicity helps.

Well I better get back to work. Gotta submit a report soon and I haven't even started it yet. =(

a hunting we shall go...

Wish us luck folks. We managed to squeeze ourselves into this year's theSun Motor Hunt. We will be up against 200 odd cars under the Open Category (supposedly meant for No0Bs). Should be pretty exciting as none of us have gone for a treasure hunt before. Only downside is we gotta be up and ready by 7am! Sigh. All of us are graveyard shift buggers so that is gonna be one hellave task. Guess what are team name is? I'm sure you can't. The organiser even laughed when I confirmed it with her. Well we are going with 'Goondens'. Yup you heard right. Kinda suits us since 2 of us are gundens while the other 2, well they eat just as much. LOL.

Anyhoo. Am pretty excited about this. Hope we manage to walk away with something. A prize of some sort. Think one of the biggies is a 42" plasma screen. Yummy. Just before World Cup 2006 as well. Well I gotta head back to work. Once again, wish us luck folks! =)

the darndest things kids say...

Funny stuff I received via email.


Little Johnny was 7 years old and like other boys in
his age rather curious. ....

He had been hearing quite a bit about 'making out'
from the older boys, and he wondered what it was
and how it was done.

One day he took his question to his mother, who
became rather flustered. Instead of explaining
things to Johnny, she told him to hide behind the
curtains one night and watch his older sister and
her boyfriend.

This he did. The following morning, Johnny described
EVERYTHING to his mother.

"Sis and her boyfriend sat and talked for a while,
then he turned off most of the lights. Then he
started kissing and hugging her. I figured 'Sis must
be getting sick, because her face started looking

He must have thought so too, because he put his
hand inside her blouse to feel her heart, just the
way the doctor would. Except he's not as smart as
the doctor because he seemed to have trouble
finding her heart. I guess he was getting sick too,
because pretty soon both of them started panting
and getting all out of breath.

His other hand must have been cold because he
put it under her skirt.

About this time 'Sis got worse and began to moan
and sigh and squirm around and slide down
toward the end of the couch. This was when her fever
started. I knew it was a fever, because Sis told him
she felt really hot.

Finally, I found out what was making them so
sick - a big eel had gotten inside his pants
somehow. It just jumped out of his pants and
stood there, about 10 inches long, honest, anyway
he grabbed it in one hand to keep it from getting

When Sis saw it, she got really scared-her eyes
got big, and her mouth fell open, and she started
calling out to God and stuff like that. She said it
was the biggest one she's ever seen; I should tell
her about the ones down at the lake by our house!

Anyway, Sis got brave and tried to kill the eel by
biting its head off. All of a sudden she grabbed it
with both hands and held it tight while he took a
muzzle out of his pocket and slipped it over the
eel's head to keep it from biting again.

Sis lay back and spread her legs so she could get
a scissor-lock on it and he helped by lying on top
of the eel. The eel put up a hell of a fight.

Sis started groaning and squealing and her
boyfriend almost upset the couch. I guess they
wanted to kill the eel by squashing it between

After a while they both quit moving and gave a
great sigh. Her boyfriend got up, and sure enough,
they killed the eel. I knew because it just hung
there, limp, and some of its insides were hanging

Sis and her boyfriend were a little tired from the
battle, but they went back to courting anyway. He
started hugging and kissing her again. By golly,
the eel wasn't dead! It jumped straight up and
started to fight again.

I guess eels are like cats, they have nine lives or
something. This time, Sis jumped up and tried to
kill it by sitting on it. After about a 35 minute
struggle, they finally killed the eel. I knew it was
dead, because I saw Sis's boyfriend peel its skin
off and flush it down the toilet.


LOL. Wonder if Mom survived that...

citizenship update...

Guess what? Got an update on my MyKad fiasco. Looks like they 'misplaced' my application. It would seem they 'misplace' about 150 odd a month. Can you beat that? Wow. Talk about efficiency. Sigh. Supposedly they are working on it now. Just gotta pray that it'll be done within' a week or so. If not I might as well just deport myself. =(

getting deported...

Sigh. Looks like I might get deported soon. To where I'm not sure but Malaysia sure ain't sure if they want me. Its been 6 months since I applied for a replacement MyKad (after it was stollen with my wallet). I've been to both PJ and Putrajaya branches. PJ tells me to head to Putrajaya while over there they tell me its under review. Review?! For 6 fucking months?! I mean I thought we were going towards the 9th Malaysian Plan. C'mon la. Plus I had my MyKad way before the deadline and last minute rush. I think I was one of the first batches when MyKad was introduced. Arrggh. Only hope when it does come out I don't have any other problems with it. Maybe I'll suddenly be Muslim or Buddhist or better still maybe a female. They seem to love doing that. Only our government can fuck up simple data entry and then expect you to pay to get it fixed. LOL. Oh Malaysia. When will you ever live up to your own dreams and aspirations.

01:02:03 04/05/06...

Hmmm I'm sure most of you read about the or maybe even looking forward to the auspicious time. This magical moment will never happen again except this Wednesday on the 4th of May 2006 at 1:02:03 in the morning. The Star newspaper is even asking their readers to post up what they did during this time for a chance to win some prize for the most interesting idea. What are you folks gonna do? Or for late readers, what did you do?

Guess what I'll be up to then? I'll be just finishing work! Arrggghhh. So at that special moment I'll most probably be shutting down my laptop and packing up. I might not even realise it till I get home or better yet, till the next day. LOL. Oh well, so much for being auspicious. To those that actually planned something, hope it works out for ya. And for the rest that couldn't really give a shit and are snoozing away. Good on ya. Prove them numerical/astrological/feng shuish believers that it ain't gonna make a freaking difference! ;)
