LIFE is CRAPPY~

~ life is troublesome ~




there goes my car's engine~

wu wu wu...
it have been a dark night...

it's time for my car engine to retire...
it's almost time for it to R.I.P.

dad cleaned the radiator for me today... but he forgot to reconnect the water hose...
and i continued driving it... when i realized that the engine is overheated,is it's peaking, it's a lil too late...

piston ring most probably have melted
gasket most probably burned
bearings should be damaged
radiator damaged...

it's gonna cost me another bomb...

but mayb it's time for a 1.8 GTi engine? :D

emotion vs rationality

today... talked to a kiddo fren...
and came to realize that emotion and rationality is the ying and yang to each other...

when emotion goes into business, rationality goes out...

so...

when we are talking about serious business, please keep emotion aside... as

emotion kills rationality...



my day~

2 more days b4 going bek to work...

today decided to stay at home...

finished my unfinished post...
at some lunch...

then i carried out my lazy bone to start working on my bike...
i had to overhaul my "wife"

have not been touching "her" for more than 6 months... mayb?
"she" is covered with dust and one link on "her" chain got rusted...

so it's time to overhaul my "first wife" :P

just a lil description of my "wife"

I assembled my "wife" around 9 years back when i was in form 1... from my cousin's old racing bike...
i refurbished it... give it a new coat of paint... changed some damaged parts... wolla...
there it is...
then i slowly saved up more cash... changed the crank, the wheels, brake levers, and finally the frame... i gave my "wife" a sets of bones... :P

Now, she is yellow in colour... 18 speed... STI shifters and etc...



======================================================


washing/cleaning and overhaul my wheels and bottom bracket is my mission today..

so i took of the wheels... then the chain, followed by the rear derailure...
and the crank set...
when i was extracting the crank... the tool slipped when i exert on it... and i hit my lil finger on the crank...

it swell almost immediately... the vain on the finger swell... *ouch*
quickly rushed to the kitchen and grab some ice to put on it...

accidents happens...

cleaned it, lub it... havn't been doing bike maintenance for awhile... and actually it's kinda fun doing it...
one of my dream job is actually opening an bike shop... dirtying my hands everyday with greese... :P


======================================================




oh yar... at last i have got back my Mount Kinabalu certificates... long story why it was with another person...
anyway... i got 2 certs... one is for reaching the Low's Peak (4095.2m) and another one is for climbing through Mesilau Trail...
Mesilau Trail is 2km further than the one through Timpohon Gate...

i have not writen anything for my sabah trip yet(which is 10 months ago)... it has so much to write about until i am so lazy to write about it... i will write it someday... someday... :P

Gong Hei Fatt Choy~

hello everyone...
had a quite-a-wonderful-and-terrific Chinese New Year...

for the starter, my boss chased us off the office early on friday... we could leave at 5pm... it have been awhile i left office when there is still some sun light~

17th Feb (eve of CNY 2007)
Saturday morning became a gift-delivery man, then flew to Mid Valley for last-minute-tshirt-shopping... managed to drag eugene-the-big-bad-wolf along....

managed to buy 2 t-shirts and a anti-static titanium sports necklace...

then rushed back home to pack my bag as me and my family and uncle's family is going off to Bukit Tinggi for vacation... *yippie*

journey to bukit tinggi was smooth as there is not many cars on the road... i guess most ppl have already reached their kampung/home to prepare for the reunion dinner...



weather in Bukit Tinggi was terrific... it's soooo green everywhere!! kewl...
we had our reunion dinner there... had SteamBoat!!!

we shifted the dining table from both our apartments to the balcony... to enjoy the breeze while having out delicious-and-hot steamboat...


every adult is bz preparing food... i am bz taking photo... :p to preserve the very moment... kekeke...

we had abalone, cuttlefish, prawns, bamboo fungus, mushrooms... all sorts of mushrooms..., vege, fish balls, wine, sparkling juice and many many more yummy-licious food~


then we FEAST ~~!



after the yummy-delicious-satisfying dinner, uncle and cousins dragged me over to the bowling alley...
oh man... my first game was SO HORRIBLE until my uncle laughed at me and said that was a GOOD longkang game... =.="
i have not touch the bowling ball for more than 4 years... and plus the weight of the ball wasn't right for me... eventually the following game i gained more points... but i am still below 100... :(
(my first game was only 25 points... =.=" )


my record point was 250... got it 5 years back when i was playing at this very same bowling alley... wif my uncle and aunt coaching me... :P (uncle and aunt was Canon Bowling Best Couple Team for few consecutive years a few years back when my aunt was still working at canon)


Sent out tons of sms-es to wish my frens Happy piggy year~

18th Feb (Chor Yat of CNY 2007)
woke up around 830... when i open my eyes... yummy vegetarian breakfast was served~!
have been having that kinda breakfast on first day of CNY for the PASTTTTTT many many many years...
the meal was satisfying... Steaming yummy soup on a cold morning...

right after the meal, aunt, mom and sis bz preparing food for our lil picnic later during lunch... luncheon meat, various flavours of sausage, ham, cheese, cucumber, tomato, bread....

YUM YUM (again)...

after finished packing all the food, we hopped on the car and drove to the Japanese Tea Garden/Botanical garden...

Weather was good... flowers are beautiful... seems that everything is perfect for a picnic...



we first went through the Japanese Tea House Garden... looking at Koi(s)... but the place is not as beautiful as 5 years ago... the water at the pond isn't running anymore... the fish ponds was kinda badly maintained...

The Japanese tea ceremony demonstration is not there as well... now all they have is just 2 girls... wearing the kimono... and sat there... without doing anything... HOW BORING~



But well... there is still a plus point for them... at least the Flora and Fauna in the botanical garden is still very beautiful...

we went to our old spot... a pondok in the botanical garden for our lil picnic session...
picnic... makan...~ eat eat eat... drink drink drink... laugh laugh laugh... it was fun...

every passer by just stared at us... i guess they are wondering who are all these ppl with full loads of Food...

after our food galore, we headed to the Rabbit Farm...
the rabbits in the rabbit farm is not-so-friendly... cos when u try to go near them... they will just hop/runs away like a flash of lightning... Now u see... Now u don't~

after all the chasing of rabbits, i ended up having fun looking at the silly looks of the donkeys behind the rabbit farm... (i mean real donkeys... blur looking donkey with 4 legs and long ears)

Then we headed to CoLmaR Tropica - The French Village...



we walked around the the place for a moment... there nothing much there already.. No more Can-Can girls... No more Clown shows... No more White-Coloured-snake...

so we ended up feeding Koi(s) again... =.="

there is 2 arrogant-looking white swan on one side... and another 2 silly-looking black swan on the other...

since the white swan is still bz cleaning themself after at least 15 minutes of cleaning, we opt for the black swan that went to the water at the other side...

although the black swan looks really silly... but to me they are still gorgeous... the blend of black and white feathers are very beautiful...


my dad started to feed them wif fish-food... yes... Fish FOod... and they are eating it...
they eat as if they have not been eating for DAYS... how cute rite? Swan eating Fish-Food...


19th Feb (Chor Yee of CNY 2007)
woke up early... had breakfast... dad and mom went paktor for breakfast in the restaurant...
sis and aunt prepared breakfast in the apartment... :P

buka mata saja... food is serve on the table~
Bacons, Hams, sausage... and nescafe...

went for a swim after the breakfast... the weather wasn't too good... very gloomy...
no sun... the water is freezing cold... and it have been awhile since i swam...

di di da da... tIME to go home... :(
packed up all the things and start shifting it back to the cars...

did i mentioned we brought almost half(literally) of my mom's kitchen utensils there?



20th Feb (Chor Sam of CNY 2007)
Annual visiting of friends~
kelly being the coordinator... organised everyone for the visiting...
everyone gathered at Kelly's hse at 10am... as usual... there is surely a few person that is late... :-s

then following is my hse... then Hong's, then weng sing's, then seng meng's
this year as usual i did not follow them to visit until the last house... :p

went to dinner and movie wif someone at KLCC...
had dinner at chili's... Molten Chocolate Cake indeed is very Delicious...

Iced cold Vanilla ice-cream on the top... Hot Steaming chocolate cake at the bottom...

one of the best desert i ever tasted~

then we went on to our movie... we watched Music & Lyrics...


movie starred by Hugh Grant a washed-up 80's Pop star with silly looking hair and wears tight pants... and Drew Barrymore... cute-looking-plant-lady-who-has-talent-in-lyrics-writing...

this movie is worth watching for ppl who loves romance comedy...

the nite out was good.. :)

21th Feb (Chor 4 of CNY 2007)

today me and a colleague(whoo) played a prank on one colleague(hkwong)...

this is what u get for trying to scare us!



we practically used double sided tape to stick the angpow packets all around his table... his pc... his monitor... his tumbler... his cup... his chair and his drawer as u can see from the picture...

we sealed all the his PC's power button, his cup's cap, his tumbler's cap and the opening of his first drawer... i could not imagine what's his reaction when he see this happened to his table early in the morning tomolo!!!

wuahahahaha..

this is what u get in return for trying to scare us with all sorts of ghostly story when u are leaving office earlier than us during our late nite work!...

i could not stop laughing during the process!

===================================================

work today was tiring... whole day of thinking and thinking and thinking... and i could not solve it yet... that's frustrating... stupid JS ans JSP!!!

today our IT PM belanja makan on behalf of our project... we had some simple but nice dishes... cost around 400+ for 14 person... kinda costly thou...
we 9 males + 5 females... males walked... female went by car...

and we males are much faster than them!!! this prove that walking is faster... kekeke
and after the lunch... rain suddenly poured... the rain wasn't heavy... but the rain drops are BIG~!

we told our IT PM... continue walking... it's just illusion and imagination...

ahahahah when we reached office... we were a lil wet... hahahahahaha and his expression was hilarious!

we could not stop laughing again....


valentines day~

most ppl will ask how's my day....

my day started normal... go work... then do work work work... work till late nite...
wasn't feeling well in the morning and evening...

waited waited and waited... for emptiness... for nothing...

ha! that's practically how my day looks like...

==============================================================

anyway... i was driving bek from office through Federal highway at around 1am just now... when i was cruising at 120km/h, suddenly all the cars comes to a still... i was wondering what happened... police block or something? damn... of all days...

then soon i found out that there is a trailer over turned on the opposite road somewhere 1km to the motorola bridge...

There is nothing wrong at my side of the road... but then there is a lot of CURIOUS CATS around... slowed down the car until almost a stand still just to see what happened!..

dang... malaysian drivers... sigh...
it's like damn obvious the trailer lost control and over turned on the road... taking up the whole blady 3 lane highway heading towards KL...

that's the end of story... what's the need of STOPPING and LOOK? it's NONE OF YOUR BLARDY DAMN BUSINESS... just drive lar !...


CURIOSITY KILLS A CAT... u know!!!



sigh...

i might be a patient person... but do not test my patience...
i might be a thoughtful person... but do not take it for granted




this song is specially for u...




Here is a brief history of valentines day (Feb 14)

Every February, across the country, candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. But who is this mysterious saint and why do we celebrate this holiday? The history of Valentine's Day -- and its patron saint -- is shrouded in mystery. But we do know that February has long been a month of romance. St. Valentine's Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. So, who was Saint Valentine and how did he become associated with this ancient rite? Today, the Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred.

One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men -- his crop of potential soldiers. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine's actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.

Other stories suggest that Valentine may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape harsh Roman prisons where they were often beaten and tortured.

According to one legend, Valentine actually sent the first 'valentine' greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl -- who may have been his jailor's daughter -- who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed 'From your Valentine,' an expression that is still in use today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories certainly emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic, and, most importantly, romantic figure.

my new toy~

got myself a new toy on Friday from a chop shop in Puchong...

that's my first time visiting that chop shop and that place is HUGEEEEEE
was looking for a steering wheel for quite sometime already...

was looking for either a Sportline or a Momo wheels.. but both of them cost a BOMB for a brand new ones... and i dun planned to get the fake Momo either...

so i tried my luck at Mun Lee Auto on Friday...

i saw some 2nd wheels hanging on the wall of the cashier... there is 2 momo race there... but then they are selling it for 250rm... a 2nd hand steering for 250bucks? no way (btw... new ones is around 800 bucks)

then i was looking at the "Junk" steering area... where most of the wheels there is old and dirty... at first some other old wheels caught my eye... but then it's foam is either torn or badly cracked...

then after 2 round of scanning around... something caught my eye... a VeilSide wheel... a very rare wheel... very rare...

i asked for the price... 120 bucks! damn... a lil costly... but what the heck... i bought it...

this is how it looked like when i bought it back... dirty and greesy!!


i get my self some cleaning buddy to help me clean up that wheel... my cleaning buddy are... Toothbrush, Soap, Water, Old rag, Polishing cloth, Polish, Leather and Vinyl cleaner and not forgetting... Hair Dryer...

after almost 10 minutes of washing with soap and water... and another 20 minutes of drying it up with hair dryer, it looks like this...


i spent my whole evening trying to clean the steering wheel... rub rub rub... polish polish... and rub rub rub again...

then it looks much better... much much better than the look of it when i first saw it in the chop shop...

yesterday afternoon i went to Eneos to get the boss kit to fit into my car... and it cost me 25.50... it's considered as cheap as it has 2 extra horn button, 6 screws and an allen key bundled with the boss kit...

i took the old original wira steering wheel off and fitted this VeilSide wheel and i took the car out for a spin... looked for someone... and the "feel" on the steering is GOOD!!
but still needed a lil bit more touch up...

to this evening... i took off the steering wheel off my car... and took a roll of cello tape... and tapped of the otter skin of the blue colour section... after around 3 hours of "peeling"... (damn it's damn susah to peel the skin off)...

at last it's done... nice but not perfect yet!...




TADAAAAAA... *vrooooooooooooooom*

Put a smile on your face~!

lately... a lot of people have been down and moody...
heard many sad stories... and i dun know what can i do for them...
all i can do is just pray... pray for the best for them...
and hope that they will feel better... and i am ready to lend my ear to them(literally)

here is a song i would like to dedicate to someone... :)

Smile by Vitamin C

Alright...

Alright...


First of all


When you wake up in the evening and the day is shot

Find yourself complaining 'bout the thing you ain't got

Never crossed just the way that you wanted it to

Cliche of the day, c'est la vie that's just life


[Chorus:]

Life, it ain't easy

It's so tough

It ain't easy

(Whatchu wanna do, say whatchu gonna do)

Put a smile on your face

Make the world a better place

Put a smile on your face

(Whatchu wanna do, say whatchu gonna do)

Put a smile on your face

Make the world a better place

Put a smile on your face

(Whatchu wanna do, say whatchu gonna do)


And another thing


You can say that I'm a dreamer and you think it's uncool

Preaching 'bout the better life I learned in school

But you get what you give in this life that we live

And all that you do come back to you


[Repeat Chorus]


(Lady Saw)

Yo,

When things isn't right there's no need to fight

Come on be nice

No need to fight

Stay polite even when you're hurting don't forget to smile

Give love to our nation, big or small

When you do good you'll get your reward

United we stand, divided we fall

Put a smile on your face and greet one and all


[Repeat Chorus]


People love you when you smile

And hate you when it's through

Lots of happiness

We are wishing you

If you come from Jamaica or Honolulu, yeah

Keep a smile on your face

I'll see the good that you do


Smile (smile)

And everything will be fine..
