syabas nicol!!

A GREAT BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Nicol David for her great achievement. With all the stress as well as multiple tournaments she has gone through this year, she managed to retain her World Championship title. This only cements her world #1 ranking in the Women's International Squash Players Association. Nicol is truly the best sports person in Malaysia in a looooooooong time if not ever. By her own accord she worked herself up to be the best female squash player in the world. Not to mention one of the youngest. Am very proud of her and so is most Malaysians I am sure. Someone we can truly look up to.

Syabas Nicol! =)

watch exhibition...

Just got back from a really good watch exhibition entitled "The Conquest of Time". It was organised by Sincere Watch Limited and only cost RM10 which was cheap considering all the masterpieces on display as well the free books given by each watchmaker. There were a total of 25 brands on display like Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe, Jaegar-leCoultre and IWC. Think the cheapest there would be Tag Heuer.

I got to give props to Audemars Piguet as they had the best booth. They opened up all the mechanisms and gave the public a closer view of their creations. I would pay the entrance fee just for that booth really. Plus the President of the company was down as well. I only just found out that it is the first time Audemars Piguet is presenting the biggest collection of 2006 Millenary watches, including the much talked-about MC-12. Hit on the hyperlink to check out the watches they had on display. Really good stuff. No wonder the big guy was done. Hehe.

My favourite watch was also on display (pictured below) and guess how much it cost? About RM1 million odd. Hehe. I wonder when I would be able to easily plonk that much for a watch. Guess there is no harm in dreaming right. ;)

I would advise all those that are interested in watches to check this show out. I guarentee you wouldn't be dissappointed. Sigh. If only I could have walked away with one or 2 of them. LOL.

stupid airport...

What a freaking long day yesterday. My uncle who came down from UK was returning home while my dad was coming back from China. One was leaving at 11.45pm while the other returning at 1.30am. As expected I had to hang about in the airport throughout cos it would cost more to make 2 rounds. Got there around 10pm and got my uncle checked in. He went through the immigration around 11.15pm and I was left alone to loiter. Went and got myself a magazine and also brought along my Nintendo DS to pass the time.

All was good for the first hour and half. Then the boredom kicked in. The place was cold and quiet as most of those around were transit passengers and were mostly asleep. Luckily before I knew it, it was already 1.30am. Went downstairs to the Arrival Hall only to find out there isn't any fucking information on my dad's flight. Damn Shenzhen Airlines. Didn't even know such an airline existed. I mean it was displayed to arrive at 1.30am but thats it. No other information what so ever. No delay or arrived or retimed message. Stupid information counter was useless, all they know is what the damn monitor says. Hellave informative huh. Ended up roaming around aimlessly till about 3.45am when their flight finally landed. Only when my dad got out of the Arrival Hall did the stupid display showed that the flight had landed. Can you beat that?! LOL. And to think my dad was one of the last few that walked out. Sigh. Hellave world class airport I tell you.

Sigh. So at the end of it I spent 6 fucking hours in KLIA and spent quite a bit. RM17 for parking and RM12 just for a fucking value meal. Arrggghh. Used to think it was an impressive airport but not anymore. Maybe for short visits to impress tourist. Think I'll stop rambling now. Just wanted to vent for a bit. Hehe. Cheerio folks...

i'm going blind...

Arrgghhh. Looks like before I know it I'll be blind la. Dammit. Within one year and my power has risen again. Although in the positive sense I gotta be relieved cos when I noticed my contacts were getting blurry I thought my eyes were fucked. Especially since I was using Renu's solution which had all sorta probs. Thankfully its nothing like.

Still its annoying la. Felt like I got myself a new pair of glasses and supply of contacts just recently. Grrr...

another phone?!

I know I know. Always said I won't simply change my phone. Somehow I suddenly had this urge to get a new phone and its done. Have already ordered it and should be getting it sometime this week. Can't wait really. Hehe. Another new toy to play with. Still sticking with Motorolas though. Was considering Sony Ericsson since I wanted a music based phone but I never did like their interface. So have decided on getting a Motorola ROKR E2. Plus its almost identical to my existing Motorola E398. Now I have to find a waterfish to offload my current phone. Hehe...

My old man was also itchy on getting a new phone. So I decided to get him what he wanted which was a basic phone with radio feature plus gotta be a Nokia. So another new addition to the family is the Nokia 6030. Hope he'll be happy with it...

annual dinner...

Finally after 3 fucking years I got to attend my company's annual dinner. It wasn't much to shout about but with the right company we manage to make it good for ourselves. Guess its also due to the free flow of beers. Hehe. It felt like a Chinese wedding dinner as most of the time we just went around yum seng 'ing like there was no tommorrow. It was trips between the tables to the bar. Till of course they decided to stop serving beers. Hehe. I think our tables practically ran the tap dry. Dammit it should be free flow all night. After all it was our 35th Anniversary right?!

After dinner we proceeded to this club called Rain which is behind Burger King and Projet in Sri Hartamas. Part of Modestos. It was empty but before you know it we had it filled up. It was great to have the club all to ourselves. By the end of the night we were all sloshed. Most of us can't even recall what happened. I did something I never do, even I can't believe it. I danced! LOL. Sadly I can't remember most of it but from the looks of it, I was pretty impressive. Hehe. Think something must have come over me.

Boy it sure was a good night although sadly I can't remember bits and pieces of it. Been awhile since we had such a good time. Gotta get together with the mates more often. Although I could do without the morning hangover. LOL. Thankfully no vomitting fits just an upset tummy. Phew...

we lost!!!

Arrgghhh. Nooooooooo. Man Utd actually lost today. OMG. I can't believe it. And to lowly Southend. Sigh. We even had an almost full first team squad. Why? Why? Why? Now we can't even be sure of winning the damn Carling Cup. LOL.

Dammit I still can't believe it. Arrgghhh...

another audio upgrade...

Ahh got itchy again. Finally bought myself a bigger subwoofer for the car. This time a 12 inch Alpine Type R (picture below). Sadly my amp can only pump 300w into it while the woofer can handle 500w. Now I'm itchy to change my amp to something more powerful. Sigh. Think this will never end la. One after the other. Hopefully I'll be able to sell of my current amp for a decent price and upgrade accordingly.

Am very happy with the outcome though. Much better bass output and it can hit so much lower as well. Not to mention the punch. Damn I wonder whats next. Hmmm. Change my front components to something more musical? Maybe add some rear speakers? Decisions decisions...
