Primary School

Everyday I passed by my old school on my way to work shuffling and balancing myself on a crowded STAR LRT. I will normally take a 1.5 litre Tupperware plus my lunch box and together with my 1.73 meter and 165 lbs body frame I will balance myself on a crowded LRT. As the train approach a station my muscle will tense up ready for the sudden brake. With one hand on the rail and the others holding on my little black bag which contains my things, my feet will do a balancing act. The reason I do this is that I afraid that I will bump into some girls and I will be labelled as “Wolf”. Normally as I was doing this the train will reached the back of my school.

There are a lot of memories in the few buildings that is still on top of the hills. During primary school I was in the top class. During those days, all I have is a single bag which carries my text and exercise book for the day. I think the best time during school is recess whereby I could savour my delicious Chicken Rice and Yee Mee. I love these foods. The chicken rice is not those type of chicken rice that we eat now, the rice is black in colour due to the gravy, and it’s like a hybrid of the normal chicken rice and clay pot chicken rice. After eating lunch, I will normally carry along my little marble and goes behind the school yard. That’s where the marble warlords gathered around and have their quick game before going back to the

I could not remember the rules of the game but what I do remember is that there is a hole. That hole is like home. The winner could get some free marble or the winner could actually use their marble to knock the loser marble in an agreed number of times. This is with the thinking that it will cause some damage to the loser marble. I am not sure why but now I think it will cost the same damage for both. At that time it was fun. There is even a ranking system whereby the lower rank will always fight with the lower rank. There are also cases whereby the higher rank will gives some kind of handicap to the lower rank to entice them to battle. Actually who create all these rules?

I also remember clearly the wooden chair that we sat on. There are cravings and words being written on it. Some with SS love AA message and some with very strong F**k and whatever possible bad words you know of. I just scanned an old school photo of mine, this one is when I was in Standard Six and when I am still quite thin(?), just guess who is me, click on it for a bigger picture. If I could recall some old tales from this period, I will blog about it. Just let me dig.....

My catch from my last trip to BKK

My last trip to BKK was a shopathon, I am not sure such word exist but anyway I spend almost an average of 5 hours outside the house window shopping, buying items that was categorise as “shock price” and items that is with the “in look”. My wife and I love item that looks “high tech”, in regardless whether its IT related or household items.

There is a corner in our BKK house which we intend to have as a study corner whereby all the books will be store in a book shelf. We have bought the book shelf but what is left is some chairs for the eager mind who wish to read and would love to enjoy a sip of water or tea or coffee. We went out searching trying to create a corner which is comfortable enough for anyone to just sit down and enjoy themselves reading. So this is what we manage to “reel in”.

Of course on a hot day, you will need something to cool down yourself while you wonder around the world that the writers created. What is best way to cool down besides having an air cond (too expensive)? A fan just right opposite of you blowing and changing the warm still air into cool summer breeze. So below is our next catch.

Of course after spending hours deep inside the thoughts of the writers, the best way to comes back to reality is doing some household work. The best way is to suck up all the dirt, hairs, dust and etc which is small enough for this little beauty mouth. Our next catch.

While the vaccum is sucking away, the best way to enjoy and soak yourself in household bliss is to have some soothing sound accompany you. Plug in your Kenny G, 12 girls band, Kitaro.....Our next catch.

After some bone cracking activities the best way to enjoy yourself is to sit in the sofa. The side of the sofa looks empty hence our next catch is as below.

After a long day, there is a need to goes back to the cave and rest. The best way is to have greenery decorated along the way.

I hope you guys enjoy my catch....

Tim Son


My wife got this photo of a new born, belongs to my thai colleague, Tim . She just give birth to a boy on 20th September 2005. His nick name is "Gun". This photo is taken on 21st September 2005. Welcome to this world "Gun".

Cup or Water?

I got this piece from a friend.

A group of working adults got together to visit their University lecturer.
The Lecturer was happy to see them.

Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.
The Lecturer just smiled and went to the kitchen to get an assortment of cups - some porcelain, some in plastic, some in glass, some plain looking and some looked rather expensive and exquisite.

The Lecturer offered his former students the cups to get drinks for themselves.
When all the students had a cup in hand with water, the Lecturer spoke:

"If you noticed, all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones.

While it is normal that you only want the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.

What all you wanted was water, not the cup, but we unconsciously went for the better cups."

"Just like in life, if Life is Water, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups.

They are just tools to hold/maintain Life, but the quality of Life doesn't change."

"If we only concentrate on the cup, we won't have time to enjoy the water in it."

Finances

I am not sure if I am the only one. Every year I pay taxes and every year when it comes to budget, I could see that there are xx amount goes to this and that but I am not sure how it is actually spend. A lot of us are interested only in the increase of cigarette price, alcohol price, tax deductions and etc but how many of us actually spend the time to read and find out how is our hard earned money being planned and use. How will it benefit us in return and not just how much more or less tax to pay.

I am not sure do the government actually declared what they have spent and earned the previous year. Maybe I do not read in details as every year the budget contains pages of pages of text and graph. I am not sure is it our right to know how this money of ours is being spend by the government in details, how many goes to the improvement of the “public” infrastructure, salary of the government servant, extra curriculum activities like organising parties, overseas “learning” trips, building more amenities for the “public” to enjoy and etc.

Recently somebody told me that the government might declare a 2 months bonus for the government servant. I felt a bit jealous as I have not received any bonuses for almost 6 years. If you have been to any government offices to renew your passport or to get your mykad or to conduct any kind of business with the government, do you see any improvement in their services to justify the 2 months bonuses? My dad flat have yet to be transferred to my sister name after so long. My sister went to have her passport renew and according to her the services is a bit slow.

I am not good in finances, my philosophy is to save and save, that all. I do not know how to grow it and previously I do not even know how to spend it either. Now I think I have managed to learn the way of spending but it’s in a wise way and not “throwing” away the money. I can’t wait for the next budget….

Joke

I got this joke from a friend, I think some of us might have read this, anyway here is it..

Three men: a project manager, a software engineer, and a hardware engineer are in Ft. Lauderdale for a two-week period helping out on a project.

About midweek they decide to walk up and down the beach during their lunch hour. Halfway up the beach, they stumbled upon a lamp. As they rub the lamp a genie appears and says "Normally I would grant you 3 wishes, but since there are 3 of you, I will grant you each one wish."

The hardware engineer went first. "I would like to spend the rest of my life living in a huge house in St. Thomas, with no money worries and surrounded by beautiful women who worship me." The genie granted him his wish and sent him on off to St. Thomas.

The software engineer went next. "I would like to spend the rest of my life living on a huge yacht cruising the Mediterranean, with no money worries and surrounded by beautiful women who worship me." The genie granted him his wish and sent him off to the Mediterranean.

Last, but not least, it was the project manager's turn. "And what would your wish be?" asked the genie. "I want them both back after lunch" replied the project manager.

Update Responsibility - Who is this handsome?

I took a photo of my colleague son when he is just a month old, refer to my previous post, who is this handsome? . I actually took a few photos of him in my last trip but it’s a bit blur as it was quite dark and he was moving a lot. I did not use the flash as I am afraid it will spoil his eyes. I managed to take a few good one of him yesterday.

I am still undecided whether its “wise” to become a parent. I am not sure if I up to it. If I am ready to take up another responsibility, one that require a life time commitment. One that will later on will make life confusing. A lot of us are brought up to be a responsible son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, employee, employer, debtor and etc. We always have multiple “hats” to wear. There are times you will need to be a good father and when you step into the office you will need to be a responsible employee. Sometimes this responsibilities cross each other path and one got to decide which one has higher priority.

How does one decide which “hat” is more important? Some might argue if I could not become a good employee, hence I could not become a good husband, father and etc as I might not be able to bring in the needed $$$ to become one. Does that means we have decided that $$$ is more important? This basically comes back to the basic argument that we always had, is money capable of buying and substituting things like love, health, time and etc. Money definitely could buy us a big house but can it fill the house with laughter, warmth, lively chatter and etc. Money could provide our children with a better head start likes a better education, experience and etc. Nowadays this thing is not cheap.

Sounds confusing? What should we do? I am not sure but one thing I am sure, nothing can beat to hear the laughter, to touch, to feel, to experience, to see one son and daughter grows up. To friends and colleague, this is my gift to you; do not miss this experience as money could not turn back the clock. One could not press the reverse button to see the first smile from your child, the first step, the first time they say daddy, poh, mum, mea, their first cut, their first tooth and etc. Try this, after reading this go and pick up your children and tickle them, make them laugh, that laughter, that smile, the warmth of your child in your embrace. Or go over and touch your wife, embrace her, touch her cheek, her hand, what do you get? Can the coldness of the computer keyboard replace that? Can the heartless boss of yours do that? I salute those who manage to juggle all these responsibilities and for those who have yet to, I support you all the way...

Manual Vs Auto

I have been driving for a long long time. Well I guess it’s all started since my male hormones starts to grow uncontrollably. Since then I have been on wheel, hoping that some pretty girls will spot me on my Flintstone powered Mobil. This means practically for almost 20 plus years I have been toying with the stick as though it was stuck to my body. As we grew older, our body reacts differently and there is certain body function which starts to decrease its efficiency. Now we prefer to have much clever stick, one that with a press of a button it will react immediately unlike the old stick which needs leg and hand coordination. Well I am not talking about Pxxxs but I am talking about Manual Vs Auto gear cars.

One of my objectives for this trip to BKK is to drive the car that we have just bought. It’s no Ferrari or Lamborghini nor its Porsche, it’s just a big piece of metal. In my days it was rumored that Japanese made car was made of recycle coke and seven ups cans that have four wheels and a round shape thing known as steering attached to it. Nowadays Japan made cars is the most sought after car for medium income families in Malaysia. Of course now it comes with additional comfort of contour seats, air condition, bag that filled with air, alphabets that is not in the correct sequence called ABS and of course nowadays seat belts is also throw in as part of the package.

I have never driven an automatic car before until just a day before yesterday. It actually came as a surprise when my wife told me that I gotta be careful as once the gear is at “D” it will move by itself. Just a like 2 highly well built muscle men pushing it. On a cloudy Thursday morning, I have my first taste of automatic fun. I click on to the ignition, pressed the brake and touch the little button on the gear shift and slowly move from “P” to “R” and press the accelerator. Zoom and Eeeehhhhh I almost knock the gate off. Kanasai! Nobody told me that all gears will have the same effect. After a while it was smooth driving….

What has the flood dragged in?

Ah! I am back in cyber space again (for now). I was having a bad backache for the pass few days. I have yet to fully recover. I still do not know the cause yet hence I do not want to make it worse by sitting in the dinning table blogging myself away especially with my butt on the marble chair. I used to have some kind of backache before my operation but I thought it was due to my tumor in my kidney but now I am not sure why? It might be “old” age or it might be something else. Anyway I am now in Bangkok, I took 2 days off and initially I planned to be in Hua Hin. I have even booked Sofitel Hotel but due to my back problem I have decided to cancel it as it’s a 3 hours drive. I do not want to become known as the man walking weirdly in Hua Hin beach.

When the plane landed in BKK airport I could see the rain bashing it ferociously. My first thought is thank god we did not go to Hua Hin. As usual my wife was waiting for me in the airport and as we wait for the taxis; the Tik Tik sound of the rain pounding away heavily at the cement floor accompany us . My wife told me it has been raining since 9 pm yesterday and now its 8 pm the next day. Along the way my wife colleague, a neighbor of ours also has been calling my wife frequently updating her on the traffic situation. She is also stuck somewhere near the airport on her way to pick up her daughter. She also told us one bad news; it seems the surrounding area near my house has started to flood. The water is hovering dangerously at the foot of the gate.

When we reached the guard house, we could see water was every where, at more than a foot high. When we reached our house, true enough the water was edging towards the house. My father in law watching anxiously outside the house. After eating our dinner the rain has finally stopped after 24 hours and this morning when I went out this is what I saw, the thing that the flood has dragged into my house.

The kids is having a good time....

Ugly Duckling posing with shark teeth

Oh I forgot to post a picture of me with the shark teeth, so here goes. An ugly duckling with a ex shark that used to have its teeth clean often. Sure its a very white set of teeth.

My sister say I am growing thinner and thinner, now the shark also can swallow me in one go. Last time they might take few bites before reaching my buttocks. Actually I am back to my original shape before marrying my wife, hahaha as I used to play badminton at least once a week. After married my body grows wider and wider, oh Donald just call me, gotta go...Quack! Quack! Quack!

My Gold Fish, Aquaria KLCC and shopping…(Part Three)

After spending almost an hour in the aquaria, we were out in the open space. We walk along the KLCC Park instead of using the same way which is the underground passage. In KLCC Park there are a lot of trees, some is quite old. I caught the sight of this big tree; by the look of the tree trunks it’s definitely older than me. With the afternoon breeze, its branches were stretching and moving downwards like the motion of outstretching hand, ready to pick up innocent pedestrians leisurely walking below it.

Actually KLCC Park is a great place to burn sometime that is if you are not afraid to get sunburn, lucky or unlucky for both of us it is drizzling. We quicken our pace and along the way we could see a few pairs of love birds sitting on the green grass oblivious to the impending rain. I guess when you are young and in love, no rain will stop you from embracing each other and being alone together. As we were walking we decided to drop by at Coffee Bean which is allocated beside the cinema for a quick snack. My wife ordered a Pita Egg Sandwich and I order my usual sky juice. As we are enjoying ourselves, feeding each other with water and sandwich, we have decided to drop by at Mark & Spencer for a quick shopping rendezvous before heading to Isetan to buy my perfume.

Below is the result of my shopping rendezvous, a polo tee and Calvin Klein Eternity for Men Summer. I was told by the sales lady that in whole Malaysia there are only 3000 bottles which I do not really believe. Anyway thats what I did on a joyful Sunday. The End....

My Gold Fish, Aquaria KLCC and shopping…(Part Two)

When I reached the counter the pretty lady sitting behind it asked, “Sir, do you have MyKad?” (New Malaysia Identity Card), I replied “Why?” but my head already searching for logical answers, does that mean if I do not have one I could not go in? After the initial shock I was told that if I have MyKad I could enjoy a Rm10 discount on the usual Rm38 entrance fee for an adult. Wah Sei Man, too bad I have yet to get mine or I shall rephrase it, I am too lazy to go and get it. The ticket is a touch and go type. As in most Aquarium the surrounding areas is dark.

Most of us, I think will be interested in a 2 types of fish that is shark and Nemo or Clown Fish, the fish that was made famous by the show Finding Nemo, I love that show. In the Aquaria I was looking forward to see 2 major exhibits, the flooded forest tube tank and of course the underwater tunnel. The exhibition area is based the concept of journey of water from land to sea. It is divided into a few areas. It started with the highland, jewels of the jungle, flooded forest, the coast, the living reef and the living ocean. I could not really remember the name of most fish. As I went through the journey, I was fascinated with some of the fish that was on displayed and I was also disappointed in some of the water quality in a few of the exhibits. It was not as clear as I think it should be. I am not sure if it’s my eyes or the water is tweaked according to the fish natural habitat which is not supposed to be clear.

We spend about an hour or so inside there and of course the climax is the water tunnel. It has an automatic walk way and also a normal one on the left side. I think the normal one is meant for those who love the challenge of taking photo in the tunnel. I did manage to get some good shots but half of it is quite blur as we are not allowed to use flash as my hand are quite shaky although its big, hahaha. As usual you could hear the shout of “Shark! Shark!” baring their fangs as they swim on top of you, side way and anyway. After exiting I could overheard a father talking to the mother, “I spend 100 plus already for all of us and it takes an hour or so only? Not worth it lah”.

Personally for those who want to try and get some good photos of fish and have not been to one, well it’s worth it although not the whole Rm38 of it but its ok lah. As for me I give it 6.5 points out of 10. I will post the high resolution photos in my photoblog and you guys can be your own judge. For your information I did use flash when I am very sure that it does not cause any permanent effect to the fish as I think flash photography means long exposure hahaha. Click on this link to find out more on Aquaria KLCC.

On the left is the souvenir that I bought, the flooded forest tube tank and of course the shark! I will post the bigger version on my photo blog later. Oh I almost forgot, there is a free multimedia CD also.

To be continue....next stop shopping.

My Gold Fish, Aquaria KLCC and shopping…(Part One)

My wife has been communicating with me daily either by phone or messenger. During one of those chatting session we have actually thought of going to Aquaria KLCC. We have been to similar places in Langkawi, Hong Kong and Singapore hence we look forward to its opening. This weekend my wife is around, she is now sleeping after 3 hours of exotic fish viewing and shopping.

Aquaria KLCC was actually schedule to be open in the month of June but somehow due to unforeseen technical circumstance it was postponed until recently. I am not a fan of live fish. I did rare a dozen of gold fish during my teens. All of them perish in a space of less than few days. Why? I still do not know I guess its fate. I rare them when they are still an infant, when they are no bigger than my thumb. On the day they die, most of them are as big as my palm. It was sad seeing them floating with their tummy facing the sky. It was like losing a bunch of friends. I guess after this incident I no longer have the interest to rare any kind of fish as I still have the fear of waking up one day, seeing them floating belly up.

Anyway back to Aquaria KLCC, its opening has been delayed for a few months before it finally opens about a week or 2 ago. We reached KLCC at around 12.10 pm after eating our lunch which is the usual steam Cod fish (today with organic Tofu) and stir fry Choy sum with chicken. We walk through the tunnel which is located near Tower records. It was quite a distance. When we reached the end we saw a signage with the word Aquaria pointing to the left. We follow it and it leads us into an underground parking area.

The parking area itself was quite interesting as I could see that they actually design it with the pedestrian in mind. It is brightly lighted up and it has its usual yellow boxy line for the parking lots. What surprise me is that they have an additional yellow line in front of the parking lot for pedestrian. It stretches from one end to the other. As usual most of the pedestrian actually walks outside of it, another good design that goes to waste.

At the end of it was an automatic door opening up to a food court, another surprise. I think I have correctly read the signage so far. All the signage has Aquaria written on it. Looking farther up, I could see a man in uniform ushering visitors to another lane which has another board written Aquaria ticket counter. We follow the crowd and there is already a queue of around 20. I think the entrance is not very good in terms of Feng Shui. It is quite hidden, a "world class" attraction with a mediocore entrance.

To be continue......

Viagra

I remember when Viagra was introduced in 1998, I was told it cause quite an interest and stir in a lot of men. It is a drug that helps men who has erectile dysfunction to have the ommph back or I shall say the smile on them and their spouses during their daily or weekly or monthly or yearly “rumble”. I wrote down all the frequency as I guess when a person has such problem they could be trying it daily or they might get bore trying hence it could be yearly. I do really sympathise with them as although making love is not a must to preserve a marriage or relationship but it’s like an icing to an already beautifully bake cake.

Before I proceed, I guess I should say that this post is not to steer up any unwanted reaction to any parts of the body, be it physical or emotional. I think it’s sometimes quite frustrating when you in the mood but your “weapon” just could not fire or could not really perform according to specification. It’s just that the brain and heart say “I want! I want!” and the “weapon” does not do accordingly. I am not making fun or being distasteful but I am just trying to imagine and feel the frustration of a person suffering from such dysfunction. I really hope one day I would not have this problem as I heard it’s quite common. Especially for men who is on long term medication (I am not on any now but there is possibility I will in the near future).

Actually at that time, I do not understand the exact meaning of erectile dysfunction. When I read the article on this new blue pills that was just introduced and with the advertisement that comes with it, all I could see its men smiling. I remember at that time, I was actually preparing for my marriage and I was thinking what if I am having this so called problem, can I self test first one ah? HaHaHa.

I also remember there is a lot of funny news being reported. There is this particular news item that reported a man was admitted in the hospital after eating Viagra. It seems his “weapon” did not goes down as normal, it stays “warm and hard” for many hours. Just imagine that man walks into the hospital and talks to the nurse or the reception on the matter, “My thing is hard and standing for 24 hours”. The nurse say “What thing?” as nobody will guess is that thing. I guess the man will next say “That thing lah”. It could goes on forever until either the nurse thinks that he is weirdo that is talking dirty or the man finally shows his thing to her which could earn him a big slap.

I just bought Newsweek and it was reported that this blue little pill now not only helps sexual performance it also helps kids that has life threatening disease such as pulmonary hypertension and others like heart attack, brain damage and also pregnancy.Viagra a small little pill has now moves beyond the bedroom...
