tick tock tock...

Yippie! In about 3 hours I'll be officially off work and going for a 5 day holiday. Can't wait I tell you. Been itching to have a long break. Away from work and the city. Highlight of it all is being in Pulau Pangkor for 3 glorious days. Ahh I can already smell the ocean breeze. Gonna be putting up in a nice room at Pangkor Island Beach Resort, which by the way has their own private beach. Hopefully it won't be far off town. Planning to rent a scooter to zoom around. Gonna be my first time riding a motorbike. Hehe. Another thing to look forward to. Yay!

Sigh. Time can really move slow when ya eager to get somewhere...

new hobby...

Finally after mulling about it for a week I have decided to venture on a new hobby. Was looking for something to pass my time and was always fascinated with aquariums. Always wanted one of my own but usually either too lazy or or just lost track of the idea. Somehow now is a better time than any for me to venture into this especially with the plethora of tank sizes, fishes and gears out there.

Have to admit that am not gonna be hardcore. Am aiming for a simple tank setup. Yes I know you can have wonderful tanks with beautiful plants and colorful fishes. Sadly knowing the type of person I am (ie. LAZY), I rather do something I know I can manage. Already got myself a nano tank with a light and filter. Gonna get some gravel and the necessary chemicals for the water later.

Plan is to have some java fern and java moss and a pirate ship. The pirate ship is more for my niece. Something to excite her, plus I have to admit I kinda like it too. Blame it on the Toys R US kid in me. Hehe. Then once the tank has cycled, am gonna get a school of Lambchop Rasboras with a school of Boraras Maculatus and some Red Cherry Shrimp (love to see these lil buggers roaming about). Now the choice of fishes might change as I go along but these seem to be the best bet since I need some hardy fishes.

Wish me luck folks! =)

Below are some pictures of really beautiful nano tanks with plants and fishies. If only I can get mine to look like that.

which 'Hero' are you?

Nathan Petrelli
You scored 8 Idealism, 12 Nonconformity, 25 Nerdiness

I'm a shark, Pete.

Congratulations, you're Nathan Petrelli! You've got all the qualities of a stereotypical politician. You're ambitious, practical, and you've got more than a healthy sex drive. Still, as much you want to succeed in your field, you don't enjoy the attention that comes from being "different", and you are willing to lie to fit the image you want to present.
Your worst quality: Ambition--you will make your way to the top of any career.
Your worst quality: Anything for the votes--you will do whatever it takes.

To find out which Hero are you, please head to http://www.okcupid.com/tests/take?testid=4885834462883321217. =)

damn auto invites...

What is an auto invite you might ask? No its not the stupid function on IRC (for you nerds out there). Its a term a group of us created for losers people who self invite themselves to functions. Be it a game of futsal, a night out to the pub or even a yam cha session after work. Some even to private parties. Yes there are such people and yes they must be extremely thick to do so.

There are 3 ways that I have noticed to get yourself auto invited. The bravest is of course by just showing up. Put on ya thickest hide and just show up like one of the gang. Someone has to be really brazen or arrogant to do this. A slightly less obvious way is to find out where the event is and stumble upon the group. After all, it isn't your fault if you happen to be there right?! Lastly is by pressuring for an invite. This only works if the person you are targeting is too nice/soft or wants to please everyone. This way you get invited so to speak out of courtesy or just not to upset you. Other than that the invites come with a mixture of the 3.

Its really sad how low a person is to be an auto invite. I mean how thick, arrogant or dumb are you to attend something not meant for you. What is the point anyways? If you are not wanted, why be there! Not itself its uncomfortable for you but why spoil other peoples fun? Guess that is the whole point, if I can't have fun, you shouldn't as well. :P

last eight...

It wasn't much of a showing but we're in the last eight of the Champions League. Things are looking good but the team seems to be in trouble. We are facing one too many injuries and the last 3 games have been way below par. Sigh. Hope they buck up but with the shortage of players, its gonna be really hard. Think we shouldn't have any problem with the Premiership but not sure about FA Cup and Champions League. Sigh even Larsson is confirmed leaving.

Anyways better look at the bright side. Never know, John O' Shea or Carrick might shine. Hehe.

chopped liver...

Woo Hoo. We managed to scrape a win. Sadly I have to admit that it should have been a draw. Liverpool were playing much better during the 2nd half but I guess thats how the game goes. Can't believe of all people O' Shea is the one to score at Anfield and end their 30 game unbeaten streak. LOL. Must have been a real blow for the Reds. Hope they are able to regain their confidence before their big game against Barcelona this week. Then again hope they lose and get kicked out of the Champions League. Hehe.

blood bath...

Big day tommorrow. Devils vs the Reds. In enemy territory as well. Should be a cracker of a game. Devils need the win to ensure the Premiership title and Reds need the win just to fuck it up for us. Hehe. Most pubs and mamaks with a telly will be packed since both teams have a huge following in Malaysia. I myself am heading down somewhere with the boys. Not sure where yet but definately outside of the house. Can't wait. Am predicting a 1-2 result. Goals from Gerrard, Ronaldo and Saha.
