work work work...

Sigh. I should be on leave right now and relaxing after 1.5 years of slogging but sadly am at work. Been roped in to help another account in trouble. There goes my plans of bumming at home playing my PS3 or XBox 360 or having movie binges.

Oh well. On a plus note it might lead to another 'promotion'. Lets keep our fingers crossed on that. ;)

Alrighty. Back to another conference call. Yaaawwwnn...

high definition!

Finally decided to spend some money and get a high definition (HD) set up for the TV room. Been mulling about it for weeks now and just 2 weeks ago decided to get a gift for my dad and myself. ;)

Did some research and ended up with a 50' Panasonic Viera Plasma TV (TH-P50S10K). Wanted smaller but the old man insisted on 50' or bigger. Lucky too as 50' seems perfect for the TV room. After getting the TV I was itching to get a Sony PS3 but sadly I had to wait till 1st of November for it to be released (the slim version) in Malaysia. So it was 1 week of watching Astro and boy Astro doesn't really give you a good reason to get HD TV. It looks awful!

On the launch day I headed over to Sony Style at the Curve and got myself the PS3. Also got myself what must be the game of the year, Unchartered 2. Couldn't wait to get home and test it all out. Even loaned a copy of Transformers on BluRay from a colleague.

When it was all plugged in only one thing came to my mind. What took me so long?! Watching movies will never be the same again. The clarity, sharpness and audio quality simply amazing. Really brings out the potential of the Plasma TV. Now am itchy in collecting more BluRay movies like The Dark Knight, Iron Man and Star Wars collection.

Lets not forget the game. Unchartered 2 is really something else. The graphics are out of this world and the storyline really amazing. Keeps you wanting to play for hours. Which sadly isn't something I have the luxury of. :(

All and all am really satisfied with my investment even though I have burnt a big hole in my wallet. Now am looking towards getting a home theater speaker set. Whats the point of having HD video and no audio right? ;)

game of the season...

Did you guys catch the Manchester derby moments ago? Hope you did as it is to be the game of the season. Full of action, thrills and not to mention goals! That is what the game is all about.

What an amazing last goal by Owen to seal the game for the Red Devils. Imagine a goal right at the start and another right at the end. Classic! :D

Great game by Fletcher, Giggsy and Rooney. Two amazing games in a row for United. Hope this trend keeps up and before you know it, the Premiership is ours. ;)

Glory glory Man United!

Woo hoo. Am now a certified SDI Service Desk Manager. :D

Sunday, September 13, 2009


Am starting to get pissed. Work is taking too much of my time and I don't seem to be free to do anything anymore. Yes its good to be pre occupied but I feel work is eating up my life. I don't see a fair work vs play scenario. Sigh.

How long is this gonna last? Not for long I hope but everytime I feel a sense a stability some shit happens that flips it around. Arrgghhh. Damn am getting fed up of the Service Desk environment. Need to start thinking of changing roles. I can't leave the field as thats where my knowledge and experience lies but definately need a different challenge and pace.

premier league is back!

Woo Hoo. The English Premier League is back again for a brand new season. This time with lots of excitement especially with the big spending Manchester City. Can't wait to get the ball rolling. No more boring weekends. Something to look forward to week in and week out.

Some small changes for our Red Devils. Ronaldo and Tevez is gone. We now have Valencia and Owen (which was an interesting buy) added to the team. Will be nice to see if Owen rises to the challenge and becomes an asset like Sheringham and Larsson. Think it will be a more open play now with CR7 outta the way. Guess we'll just have to wait and see. ;)

Can't really say much who are the favourites this year. Looks to be a wide open race with all the money spent and calibre of players in multiple clubs. Good luck mates. May the best team win. :D

Glory glory Man United!

facebook faux pas...

The below Facebook no no really cracked me up. How dumb are people that they would add their boss and then bitch about them as well?! LOL.

yummy gadgets...

I sold the Sony PSP for a reason. I was trying to pool as much moolah as I can for my new interest. What now right? LOL. Well this time its about getting something for my room. Most times when am free, I'm stuck in my room without anything to do. Being in an IT line the last thing I wanna do is go online. Then Dad and Mom each occupy both the TVs in the house so thats out of the question.

Hence I decided to get an LCD TV and console for my room. Two days ago I headed over to Best Denki at Tropicana City Mall near my house and got myself a Philips 32' LCD TV for RM1799. This unit came with 3 HDMI and 1 USD inputs. Very useful especially when I found out the USB input supports AVI files. That saves me the time of finding a media player or setting up my console to playback the movie files. ;)

Then I drove straight to Gamer's Solution at City Bazaar, KL to get my Xbox 360 Go Pro Edition for RM1450 which came with 12 games. Reason I settled for Xbox was due to the fact that I could get Jack Sparrow games. I know I know I should support the developers. Sadly I don't have the moolah to be buying games monthly at that cost.

Got back home. Got a shelling from my mom for wasting money. Then proceeded to set it all up in my room. Boy what joy I tell ya. Felt like a kid again. The LCD TV is simply amazing especially when playing Xbox games. Very impressed with the clarity and real life graphics.

Love the fact that the controller is now wireless. No more messy cables and restriction on sitting right in front of the console. Now I can just sit back on my bed and play some games or catch a movie. :D

Even my old man and niece are impressed and they want to hang out in my room now! LOL.

Oh well, theres a reason behind it.

red devils asia tour 2009...

On 14th January 2009, Manchester United FC announced their Asia Tour 2009 whereby they will be stopping over in Kuala Lumpur mid July to play Malaysia XI. Since we lost the chance to see them live last year the moment that was announced I was waiting eagerly for the tickets to be sold.

So when ProEvents started selling them from 1st June, I made sure I got mine within the first week or so. Thankfully so since it was practically sold out by mid month except for the crummy seats. The seats I really wanted was sold out within a couple of days! Arrgghh.

Anyhoo I got my tickets and I made plans with Sunshine to head there early since its free seating.

This was around 2pm. Not many people in yet although a crowd did build up outside. The game was scheduled for 5.30pm. Most people were loitering around the stalls selling Manchester United souveniers, whistles and stuff. However within 2 hours or so it was jam packed with 85,000 football fanatics.

Just before the kickoff. All the players being paraded, shaking hands and the coin toss on which side of the pitch they will play.

Ahh finally the game got underway. Can you imagine waiting 4 hours for it to start in the heat. Especially when we weren't allowed to bring in water. Phew what a relief when the whistle was blown! :D

It was a pretty interesting game. The Malaysian side really stepped up. Sadly due to their immaturity they gave away many good chances. The Red Devils were up by 2 goals from Rooney and Nani before Amri scored a wonderful goal just before the half.

After the goal by Amri majority of the spectators started rooting for the home team. Even though we were all there for the Red Devils but we are after all Malaysians. :D The support paid off well as Amri scored a nice scrap goal when Ben Foster fumbled on a back pass.

Sadly the final score was 2 - 3. A last minute goal by our new boy, Michael Owen. I know the Red Devils didn't really give it their all but the Harimau Muda played with lots of passion and determination. They brought the game to the visitors and showed that with the right coaching they can actually play professionally. Kudos to coach K. Rajagopal!

The boys parading around the pitch. Giving us our moneys worth! Hehe. It was amazing to see all of them up close. Sadly Vidic and Park did not come down for the tour due to injuries.

All and all it was a great experience. Something I will definately do again except for maybe riding the damn LRT to Bukit Jalil. Its not worth the pressure of fighting the thousands of people trying to get home!

Glory glory Man United!

restoran taiping ho chiak...

This is a rather old post, since October last year if I am not mistaken! Time just flew after the new account came in and I kinda slowed down on my blogging. So am gonna give a brief one below instead of wasting the pictures.

Restoran Taiping Ho Chiak is located very near the ex Ruby Theater in Sea Park, PJ. Its down along KFC which should be a well known landmark for that area.

The decor inside is very Baba Byonya'ish in my opinion and gives a rather homely feeling to the place. At the time was around 2pm so it was rather quiet.

It was the start of the day for us so Sunshine and I had the White Coffee (RM3.00) which tasted okay but I would still prefer Old Town's to this.

For starters we had the Taiping Popiah (RM3.60). This was rather yummy. Not too oily and had a very good crunch to it. Not to mention the filling was really good. The only drawback was the chilli sauce that came with it was rather diluted and tasteless.

I had the Nyonya Curry Mee (RM5.90) which came smelling fragrant. The soup is rather thick which is how I like it but some might find it overpowering. It came with nice quantity of ingredients like Tau Foo Pok, lady fingers and bean curd skin. Only thing missing would be the cockles but I think for health reasons was left out. The soup was rich and yummy. :D

Sunshine had her favourite Prawn Mee (RM6.90) but sadly did not come up to her standards. I don't think its easy to sell prawn mee so it doesn't surprise me that they failed to meet the mark. The soup was rather watered down but as a plus point it did come with reasonable amount of ingredients.

All and all this place did show some promise. There were other interesting items on the menu but sadly haven't had the time to return and try it out. Hopefully one of these days will stop over for lunch again. I end the post a picture of their cute toothpick dispenser. Cheers.

ipod dock...

Guess what I got earlier today from Sunshine? Yup its another birthday present. I have been looking high and low for an Apple Ipod dock and now I have one. :D

Sunshine got me the Logitech Pure-Fi Anytime. Its a nicely built sleek unit with added features like digital clock and radio. Just what I needed for my dresser.

The moment I got home I tore the packaging open and have been listening to it since. Its exactly what I wanted. Now I have easy access to my library of tunes. ;)

30 already...

OMG! I'm officially 30 years old. Arrgghh time has flown by. The BIG THREE ZERO! LOL. Then again who cares right? Its just another year gone by.

Started off the day with a surprise party of sorts by my colleagues. This year was rather special with 4 cakes. Imagine the smile on my face. Luckily none of them had 30 candles on em'. Hehe.

It was definately a wonderful surprise. On top of that I was presented with some nice prezzies. :D

Look at me checking out all the yummy cakes. Red Devil inspired CuppaCakes plus marble cheesecake, chocolate cheesecake and carrot cake from Secret Recipe. Phew. Best part they were all finished by the time we were done with work. Hehe. ;)

Above is what the Exelon team got me. Yup its Ultimate Bumblebee! Really appreciate the gift guys. *sniff* Look at the big smile on my face. On top of that I got 2 bottles of liquor. A Johnnie Walker Green Label by the EMEA team and Medoff vodka from Ukraine.

It was a great start to my 30th birthday I tell ya. Still smiling from it! :D

michael joseph jackson...

He may be known as Wacko Jacko for the last decade of his life but without a single doubt he will always be the most gifted entertainer in the world.

Yesterday was a sad day when Michael Joseph Jackson died at the age of 50. A news not many could even believe till it caused a cyberspace traffic jam with record hits on Google, Facebook, Twitter & Yahoo.

It hit the whole world hard with billions mourning his loss. I always joked about his weird lifestyle but when it comes down to it, you can never find anyone as talented as he was. He is and will always be the 'King of Pop'. My only regret is not going for his concert in 1993 and seeing him perform live. :(

Thank you Michael for years of wonderful and inspirational music. May you finally rest in peace.

congrats barca...

We lost. Rightfully so as well. The better team definately won. Barcelona ran riot over the Red Devils. Its sad but am not ashamed to admit it. We didn't deserve to win at all.

Congratulations Barcelona, UEFA Champions for 2009.

To all Red Devil supporters, don't fret as we will be back next year!

battle of the champions!

Its finally on boys! In exactly 13 hours one of the biggest games of this season (and potentially in a long while) will begin. It is non other than the UEFA Champions League Final 2009 in Rome between Barcelona and Manchester United.

Literally 2 of the biggest football teams in the world head to head for the ultimate bragging rights. Who is gonna win? Definately its the Red Devils for me but truthfully it can go either way. Both teams have been top notch this season and have a plethora of stars to choose from. Furthermore they are playing for the top prize and not just any ordinary game.

Will it be Park, Rooney and Ronaldo or Xavi, Eto and Messi? Only time will tell. One thing for sure its going to be one cracker of a match. :D

number 18...

Woo Hoo! The Red Devils are officially British Premier League's 08/09 Champions. All you playa haters out there can just suck it. There ain't nothing you can say now. Dear Benitez please don't be such a sour puss. Better luck next time I guess. ;)

Now we are at number 18, another season and Liverpool can shut their traps for good. Am sure it will be one hellave season next year. Can't wait to see how hot the transfer market is gonna be. Hope Tevez remains a Red Devil but things aren't looking that good. :(

Anyways kudos to the boys for a wonderful season. Hold the celebrations though as we have one more cup to lift to cap off an historical season. Come 27th May 2009 the Red Devils are gonna bring it to Rome. Think its going to be a smashing game. :D

Glory glory Man United!

slow death...

OMG. Its freaking 2nd week of May 2009 already. Damn y'all. My blog is dying a slow and agonising death. :(

Don't worry. I will prevail. Once my new project is outta shit I'll be back to blogging shit. LOL. :D

Friday, May 08, 2009

devils whoop some arse!

Did you guys catch the game earlier? Don't cha think that is what CHAMPIONS are made of? Muahahahaha. The boys tore the Gunners a new one in their home turf.

What an amazing display of football! In barely 20 minutes we were into the finals of the UEFA Champions League. The poor young'uns were shell shocked and drained of any spirit they had going into the 2nd leg.

If only the Red Devils can play like this till the season is over. That would definately guarentee a historical season with the prized quadruple of trophies. Only downside was poor Fletcher getting booked unfairly. After all his hard work this season hes gonna miss the best game of his life. :(

Who will you be rooting for tommorrow? Am hoping Barca will kick some Blues butt. Least then we can look forward for a true Champions League final in Rome come 27th May 2009. The battle between Ronaldo and Messi. ;)

time flies...

Wow time sure flies! Its been one whole month since I last blogged. Damn. The new project has really eaten up my time. Don't even read blogs as much. Oh well its our bread and butter right.

Lemme see if I can give a summary of what has happened. The new account is still chugging along. Ever so slowly but least in an upward trend. ;)

Went to 2 wedding dinners. My primary skool mate Vincent got married yesterday while my ex colleague Vixstarr had his last week in Penang. Sunshine and I made an overnight road trip. Hella tired I tell ya but I promised Vick ages ago that I wouldn't miss it.

Other than that nothing much really. My remote control car is collecting dust. So is my PSP and NDS. Just don't have the time. Whatever free time I have is spent with Sunshine, Astro Max or sleeping. LOL. Never appreciated sleeping so much before.

Now I am in the works of sending Kate in for Stage 3. Just did an oil change and was planning it with my tuner. Most probably mid March I'll drop her in. Gonna take about 5 days or so. Expecting around 30% gain. So am really looking forward to that. :D

Alrighty then. Time to leave the damn office. Got called in last minute to do some research over poor performance. Arrgghh. Really can't wait for this account to settle down. Need a LOOOOONG break I tell ya.

Cheerio folks!

work work work...

Work work work. That is all I am involved in right now. Practically 12 to 15 hours daily am in the office fighting fires, calming oceans or just running around like a headless chicken. LOL. Sounds funny I know but not a life I would like to lead in the long term. Poor blog is getting neglected as well. :(

Sigh. Good news is we are finally live. No more transitional crap. Now just to focus on making the team meet their performance requirements. Its gonna be a steep hill to climb but as always we will prevail and get there.

Yaaawn. Damn feel so sleepy nowadays. Body is shouting for more shuteye. Just gotta down the Nescafes and move along. Guess before you know it things will be calm again. One thing to look forward to is when that time comes am gonna apply for a nice looooooooooong leave. :D

reflection on 2008...

Time sure flies doesn't it. Its already mid January of 2009. Had some spare time and was going through my resolutions for 2008 and realised I met most of them.

1. Lose weight (85kgs is too much, gotta knock of at least 5kgs!).
- Didn't really lose much but as of now I am 84kgs. LOL. So least 1kg right? Lowest I manage to drop to was 83kgs before I piled it back on during Deepavali. :(

2. Buy a house (I freakin' better get a house this year!).
- Another year goes by and I have yet to find a house. There were 2 ideal ones but only found out it was for sale after it was sold! Sigh.

3. Progress in my career (looking for more challenges & money of course).
- This part has really come true. Am now in charge of 2 major accounts and have gotten a decent increment to boot. :D

4. Work on Kate (am thinking of going turbo).
- Finally plopped a BOT on Kate. Am sure you guys have read about it here.

5. Go overseas with Sunshine (maybe Bali or Gold Coast).
- Didn't get to go overseas but least managed a few holidays. Guess at the way time is flying more than happy to even get a holiday in! :D

Thats like 3.5 outta 5. Not bad I must say. For this year I don't think I am gonna bother about resolutions. Time just doesn't permit it. Should just be happy in living life and progressing. No matter how slow that may be. ;)

jokes to lighten the mood...

Been working my ass off last couple of months and got this email. Really cracked me up. Amazing what kids can come up with. Enjoy...


(1) You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming. - Alan, age 10
(2) No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marryGod decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with.- Kristen, age 10


(1) Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.- Camille, age 10
(2) No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married. - Freddie, age 6 (very wise for his age)


(1) You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids. - Derrick, age 8


(1) Both don't want any more kids.- Lori, age 8


(1) Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.- Lynnette, age 8 (isn't she a treasure)
(2) On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.- Martin, age 10 (Who said boys do not have brains)


(1) I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns. -Craig, age 9

(2) The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that.- Curt, age 7 (Good Point)

(2) It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them. - Anita, age 9 (bless you child)


(1) There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?- Kelvin, age 8

And the #1 Favourite is........
