Wilford Ong

Those who have my MSN know that Wilford Ong is indeed me.

Yes, I got myself a new English name. Some say that's a 'Christian name', but since i'm 0% christian, i don't like to call that as my christian name. It has been a while since i decided to use 'Wilford' as my new English name. Many asked, why 'Wilford'? and why a new English name?

Trust me, I used to think 'Wei Han' was adequate. I like my name, although it's rather common. There were so strangers thought I was another 'Wei Han' whom they familiar with. Anyway, i started to change my mind when i was having my internship in Accenture. Well, the first reason, i would say: peer pressure/influence. Almost 80% or more chinese (could be non-Christians) have English names. The second reason, it seems like my name does not have 'ease to remember' trait. Except chinese-educated colleagues/friends, others have great difficulty in remembering or calling my name. When I introduce myself as "Wei Han", Malays usually repeat my name as 'Rei Han' for unknown reasons. For non-chinese-educated chinese (so called the bananas), they have no trouble repeating my name, but they have no trouble in forgetting my name as well. For foreigners, they couldn't even have the ability of calling my name UNLESS they know the exact spelling of my name.

Triggered by those thoughts, I further convince myself to have a new English name due to the arguments below:
  1. Teachers / lecturers call me 'Ong' 
  2. Some friends call me 'Wei' (well, i really dont like that)
  3. I can only accept a very close person to call me 'Han', else i will feel geli (disgusted). lol
  4. Isnt it joyous to be able to name myself? 'Wei Han' given by parents; 'Wilford' given by me myself.
Okay, next question: Why Wilford?
Giving credit to my ex-roommate, Charles, who are so passionate in helping me to search for my new name. I personally like a name starts with 'W'. And we actually get a list of 'W' names from a website. I've shortlisted 5 names from that list and I asked opinions from someone, okay, well, my gf. And that's the one she chose (though i'm not really sure if she remembers that). Of course, i personally like the name Wilford for these reasons:

  1. It feels mature, something that i want myself to have. 
  2. It doesn't sound bad. It looks nice (in words) to me. 
  3. Well, some people might not like the '...ford' part. If so, you can just break it up and call me Wil or Will, eitherway.
  4. 'Wil....' part represents Will, another thing that i want myself to have. A strong will is the key to success, for me. It seems like my will is much weaker than my ability/potential.

Yeah, i know. My friends will be shocked to see this 'stranger' name appear in their instant messenger. I expect that to happen. My friends will say 'Wilford' sounds weird or not suitable to me. I expect that to happen too. Some friends will tease and laugh at it. As expected either. All it requires is time to accept. If my name was Woon Ping, and i change my name to Wei Han. I'm sure you all will feel awkward too. It takes time for 'the name to really be mine', I believe.

Anyway, if you still feel totally absurd to call me Wilford. No problem. I like 'Wei Han' a lot, and you are free to call me Wei Han if you want. Ihe new name is meant for my new friends and mostly colleagues in the future. Those who have familiar with Wei Han, just stick with Wei Han will do. Coz, frankly, sometimes i feel weird when my old friends call me Wilford too. lol.

Different People Receive Different Treatment

Let's talk about being two-or-more faces today. I believe most of you are the same, you treat each individual differently based on his/her gender, age, position, closeness and etc. A simple example, let's compare the way you treat your teacher, your nephew, your parents, your lover, a stranger and an old friend. All receive different treatment right? That's what i mean. (although there's a possiblity you treat all the same, if that's the case, you are weirdo! Imagine you talk to your parents, "Hey parents, let's hang out" or to your nephew, "Excuse me, may i know the reason you skip the class?")

The examples i mentioned just now was a bit general. In fact, between friends, I still treat them differently based on closeness, gender, age, position and their personality. For example, towards some friends, i do not crap in front of them. I could be very gentleman in front of a person and very 'jin gak' (evil) to others. And sometimes, i will be extremely cold towards a person and i dont even know why.

I personally think the multiple behavior/treatment characteristic is okay although some people say i'm fake. But who cares, in order to be good in socializing, you gotta 'customized' urself (treatment) to different people. Don't they learn marketing? We gotta customize the product/service to suit each customer needs. lol. However, there is this one particular problem when having multi-faced. I seriously do not know how to handle, when there are two different 'treatment' groups i have to face at the same time. I face difficulties in choosing which treatment to use or how to 'combine' and find the average of the two different treatments in order to face the 2 different 'treatment' groups. By the way, do you understand what i mean? It seems like my explanation is not really easy to understand. Okay, let me give an example for you. Let's say the way i treat my parents is being less talkative and the way i treat my old friends is i always crap. Imagine, in an occasion, my parent fetch me and my friends to a place (bus station maybe). Then, in the car, i dunno how should i face the situation.. Remain less talkative or keep crapping? Usually in such situation, i will keep quiet, because i do not know how should i handle the situation. Same to this occasion, most of u know that i crap a lot. But sometimes, when you introduce me some new friends, i tend to talk less and become a bit quiet because you and 'new friends' are belong to two different treatment groups. lol. understand what i meant?

Sometimes, i wonder should i reduce the level of 'customization' so that each treatment is different but not so much different. :-/  This will make me easier to handle two different treatment groups. However, the customization level will decrease, which means it will be less effective in dealing with people. A bit dilemma though. And sometimes I also lost my self... as in i dunno what's my real personality. Because i'm friendly and unfriendly, polite and impolite, considerate and inconsiderate towards different people. And i can't say that i'm friendly in a general sense, because i'm only friendly to specific people. I could be very cold to those who i don't intend to mix with. In other words, i do not have a 'major' one side personality that defines me. Sometimes, i try to play some personality tests which everyone says it's accurate. Just to be curious, after i checked my result of the personality that i find it accurate, i will check other personality results of the same personality test too. And usually, i find many many other results are accurate too (coz i have multiple personalities).

Anyway, maybe you didnt think too much. Probably you are similar to me too, just that u didnt realize you have multiple face/personality. ;)

My Holiday

Hi all,

Long time no c. I know you all surely miss my blog a lot. Thanks for supporting and sorry for keep you waiting for my new post. (pretending to be a very popular blogger)

The title of this post is "My Holiday". What a boring post. I believe most of you have written some sort of similar post regarding to your holiday or semester breaks (some more than once). But as usual, if you like my writing style, you shouldn't feel bored reading it. And in fact, if you dislike the way i write my blog, you wouldnt even read this post. So, let's assume those who have read 'THIS' sentence love my blog. lol

Sorry to disappoint you, actually this post wouldnt be very interesting though. I just want to describe how short is my holiday and how many activities i have to do. Too much activities too limited time. (Do i sound like a very busy person?) I'm not busy by the way, to be specifically i'm not busy doing work. But i'm pretty occupied with things i want to do.

I'm not sure if you are aware of my interest. This is how i use my free time:
  1. Online/Chatting
  2. Play PC games
  3. Read Novels
  4. Watch drama/anime 
  5. Outing  
 The above are the major activities that might take me 3-6 hours per day just to implement it. And almost all of them will make me addicted and as a result, i will become crazy (as in forget to eat and sleep, and totally ignore everyone and everything else).

Err... Suddenly... i forget what's my purpose of writing this post. LOL. so that's the end for this post.. will write a more meaningful post next time. Stay tuned. haha.

Relationship between Emo and Age

Do you think your emo rate is higher than before?  I do. It's weird though. Supposingly people get more experienced when they are older, and thus should be able to manage their emotion better. Apparently it is not.

Perhaps we are still receiving new kind of challenges that our emo management cannot handle. Or maybe we do not even develop the proper emo management skills. Sometimes, i just feel ridiculous that some small tiny winy problems can make me moody. Yes, it is frustrating, but i know there are many more other even worse things happening (for other people), and i am feeling sad/emo for such a minor thing? Knowing is one thing, feeling is another thing. I know that i should not feel moody for small things like these, but yet, i am still feeling emo. Maybe i'm more of a feeling person instead of a thinking person (which is further proven by some personality tests)

Anyway, i'm interested to go for any emotion management courses. Like one of my friends said, i am a little bit extreme (not moderate) on my emotion. Too easily become overjoyed, and too easily become sad. Imbalance, i think. Perhaps emotion management courses can balance it up. Is there any cheap (or free) emotion management courses/talks available?

Sometimes, i am a bit envy with my old me which is much more cheerful than now. Is it applied to everyone that when a person gets older, the happiness rate will decrease while emo rate increases? If that's true, i'm really feeling sorry for those who are sad even when they are young. It means they will be more sad when they are older? Assuming the theory is true, let's have more fun while we can,  since we are going to be more sad in the future. What a theory.

In any depression or desperate situation, i think i can tell myself :"Well, at least i used to be happy."

Conversations with my Projects



Settings: In a very sad, dark, and solemn room. 6.50pm on Wednesday.
Main Characters: Me, Final Year Project (FYP), Information Technology Project Management Project (ITPMP)
Background: ITPMP is jealous because I don't seem to touch her for past few weeks. And she is arguing with me and she is accusing me for favoring FYP over her.



ITPMP : How could you do that to me?
Me       : Do what to you?
ITPMP : You ignored me and you like FYP more?
FYP     : No, he doesn’t.
Me       : Shhh... (to FYP), why did you say that? (to ITPMP)
ITPMP : It has been months before you touch me. (No sexual thoughts please)
Me       : What? We just submitted a progress report on you last Monday!
ITPMP : Well, you just fake that one out. We both know you never do anything about me.
Me       : (guilty) but… you are just too difficult to start with.
ITPMP : You are the one who proposed to do this system, and now you put the blame on me?  (cry out loud)  And.. and… you treat FYP much better than to me.
FYP     : Nonsense! he hasn’t touched me for weeks. Everyday I see him dealing with Personal Finance  Research Paper (PFRP), and International Finance Project (IFP) only.
PFRP   : (Angry) Don’t simply say! He has been playing with ITPM Case Study that bitch. It seems like he is  rather enjoying it.
FYP     : So you are being neglected as well? Welcome to the family!
Me       : Quiet Please! Their due dates earlier, of course I have to spend more time with them before they      ‘passed away’. Be compassionate please, you all.
ITPMP : (Sobbing) But you abandoned me for months! MONTHS!!
FYP     : ITPMP, just deal with it. Don’t cry like a baby. It’s annoying.
ITPMP : (Cry even louder)
Me       : Okay okay, I will deal with you (ITPMP) after……
ITPMP : (happier) after what? After what?
Me       : …After I finished FYP’s interim report..
ITPMP : What!?
FYP     : (big grin) Finally it’s my turn.
PFRP   : (bugging) How about me? How about me?
FYP     : (stare at PFRP) You? You slowly wait your turn la. Your due date hasn’t even been announced. And   I’m on due coming Wednesday. You can’t compete with me! Hahaha.
Me       : Er.. Sorry FYP, I forget that tomoro is due date for IFP. So, today… err.. kinda have to ignore you.
FYP     : WHAT? Then how about tomoro?
Me       : Friday is.. ITPM Case Study’s due… (oops)
FYP     : I thought you already finished them? Are you trying to cheat me?
Me       : I had finished my part, but I still have to compile them and check errors. It takes time… especially..
FYP     : Zzz
Me       : I know you all are impatient.. I had uploaded a table on your due dates. So, you all can somehow  figure out your priority based on the table. Don’t disturb me anymore.
ITPMP : You ignore me! Fine! Don’t regret.. Semester is going to end. And you need to develop a prototype  for presentation later. And you haven’t started anything yet.. Later you are going to give trouble to  yourself!
Me       : (worried) errm.. er… But your actual due date is not known yet.
ITPMP : You won’t have time when you find out the actual due date. Hmmp~ (left without bringing a cloud    [Chinese idiom]) 
Me       : She is right.. (Thinking)
PFRP   : (Disturbing) How about me?? How about me??
Me       : Shut up PFRP!

My Gang

'Note: This post is dedicated to my 6 members of my gang during my high school. It could be uninteresting if you dunno who are they. But anyway, if you wish to know about my high school friends or simply with the intention to kill time, you may continue reading. (dun say i didnt remind you oh~)

Before i start telling stories and describing, i have to say everything written here is only from my point of view. They might think differently and could have categorized another gang as the closest gang they had. Also, don’t be angry if you do not find yourself in the list. Definitely, you will be in somebody else’s list. And who knows the next time I write something like this, you will be in the list? Anyway, this gang is the most enjoyable and memorable gang that I have during my highschool (and now). Let me introduce them one by one in alphabetical order:

 
Name: Eng Kah Joon
Description: He is actually younger than all of us, coz he is a PTS student. Though he is the youngest, he probably doesn't look the youngest. Haha. I'm sure almost everyone knows the story of my BGS during standard six. And yes, he was my fighting-mate. Not the kind who fight along side with me, but the one who is fighting with me. lol. I have to admit he was one of the most 'not closest' member in the gang. He was more like a friends' friend in the gang. We don't really talk and hangout by ourselves, due to some unknown reasons (maybe not given the opportunity or don't have too identical common interest)
Recent: Glad to say, our friendship is closer now. I would have to thank facebook for that. And yes, he is more like a facebook-mate. I believe most of you know how active i am in facebook, and I'm sure he is either as active as me or even surpass me. We frequently comment on each other's walls. How about in reality? Sadly, we don't really hang out much. And he often ffk me by saying he is broke (bankrupt). But nevertheless, we are still good friends. He didn’t change much compared to last time. Probably he is more SS (syok sendiri) than before [note: he was already quite SS last time, but now even MORE SS] And i think his emo rate is higher compared to last time. Always frustrate with things that don’t run so smoothly. Anyway, I guess all of us are the same. Our emo rate is definitely higher when we are older.






Name: Ho Joon Heng
Description: He is like an observer in the gang. He doesn't really voice out his thought, and doesn’t really involve directly in most of the 'dramatic scenes' in the gang. He enjoys watching 'drama' instead of involving in the 'drama'. I'm not sure if you all get the wrong idea or not, he is not the batu api kind who enjoys watching 'dramatic events' (or maybe he is?). It's just very unlikely that he is involved in a conflict because he usually tolerates with people. Perhaps he could have been the most likable person in the gang due to his peace-minded nature. However, this doesn’t mean that he won’t become emo, when he is emo, it's like volcano eruption. Volcano that always erupts is not scary, but the sudden and rare eruption volcano is the greatest fear. He is kind in nature and seldom says no when people seek help from him. This could be a good thing or maybe a bad thing. (of coz it's a good thing to us). To me, in high school, he was more like a gang member rather than a close friend. This is because 2 of us don't really talk/hangout/play with each other a lot. Most of the time, we hang out/talk/play in a gang. And that's why he was more like a gang member.
Recent: Since he went to the Lost World (a world that is really lost, in season 6 Lost) after he moved his house for dunno how many times, there's a slight fading in terms of friendship. Luckily, our relationship is much better now because he is one of the gang members who studies at the same uni. And that breaks the 'gang-member' status to a closed friend status. It's always good to have old friend in campus. Old friends are always more trustable and sincere, in my opinion. Compare to last time, probably he is more quiet now. And his "throw-face" rate (self embarassing rate) greatly reduces recently.

Name: Ho Tet Khiun
Description: He was my best friend during high school (sad to use the word ‘was’). We went through a lot of things together, including: class-table-mate, tuition, tai chi society, librarian, staying-over, game-mate, etc… I realize most of our conversation topics are related to games and studies. We both had quite-close-to-each-other results during our high school time. We love to talk about how stupid the subjects (or the teachers) and we often make a long duration phone call on the conversation related to studies and games. We had a quite similar thinking in high school and we were closed to each other to the extent that we know what each other is thinking in our minds. We like to crap, and the most commonly used crapping style is the ‘imaginative style’. You have to really imagine the situation then only you know how hilarious it is. Many people cannot catch our craps (but I think joon heng can). I remember one funny crap is about “chia hui and kai yee doing break dance”. Because two of them are very gentle and lady-like, picturing two of them break dancing are just hilarious.   
Recent: We still contact each other quite a lot when he was in form 6. But sadly, after he went to UKM, we don’t really see each other as much as previously. Fortunately, he started to get involved into the power of internet and thus we still managed to keep in touch quite well. Our friendship does not really fade much even after he went to KL. Anyway, I believe most people notice the most obvious change he had compared to previously is his style.. in terms of appearance. He tends to follow the trend recently and unlike last time, like all of us, who did not really care how ugly we look like. 

Name: Tan Kean Zhi
Description: He is usually the ‘villain’ in the group. Not because he is very evil, but everyone tends to make him become the ‘bad person’ in the group.  In other words, we like to blame or accuse him for something he had or had not done. It’s quite cham actually, but it has become a habit among us. However, there’s a reason why I treat him like that. This is because… he always irritates me by testing my patience level. I know he isn’t purposely trying to make me angry; it’s more like he ‘naturally’ irritates me. He has the poorest speech-understanding ability in the group. And sometimes his hearing capability is not so well (plus I talk quickly and softly), I often get frustrated to repeat the same sentences to him again and again. And one more, he has a very bad sense of humour. He always succeed to make us froze with his sentences. Of course, he has his good sides. People might not notice, he is actually very helpful (to me, at least). He was my add math teacher (much better than the real teacher) during my secondary school. He also does NOT have the typical bad syndromes that other members have (slow reply sms speed, never punctual in outing). Besides his annoying attitude, I know he is a reliable friend. Whenever I face any difficulty, he could be the most ‘willing’ helper I can have.
Recent: I don’t think he has changed much. Maybe he has reduced his annoying level and probably his tolerance level. In my opinion, he is the most sensitive person in the gang. He can be very caring and careful towards your needs. And maybe that’s why he wants others to treat him the same (which sadly, in our gang, I don’t think anyone of us is as sensitive as him).
Name: Wong Ze-Hao
Description: What can I say about him? He is like destined to be my entertainment-mate. There are two main things we do together: PLAY and CRAP. He is the most flexible companion of all, which he can almost attend each and every outing invitation. Because we stay in the same neighborhood, it’s even easier for us to hang out together. We played a lot of common games and our conversation mainly based on games. And he is a great crapper… he has the ‘crap aura’ that increases my crapping skill by 30% and throw-face level by 50% when he is around. He is most probably the ‘fun’est companion to hang out with. And we can be really mad in gaming… By the way, one important trait of him is his eating capability. He is tall and thin (maybe skinny) but he can eat double or triple or quadruple of my consumption amount. Therefore, he is usually the finisher of a meal, or the backup stomach.  If your stomach cannot fit all the food that you have ordered, you can place them in his stomach. The real capacity of his stomach remains a mystery. But I witnessed him eating 7 rounds in a buffet meal. So worth the money.
Recent: Once he is away from Ipoh, we don’t really play games and hangout together due to the distance. However, the relationship doesn’t seem to be fading. Because, as long as he returns to hometown, we know… it will be an Intensive gaming time! Also, he doesn’t change much, I think. We still crap in the same way like we did in high school. Probably he has reduced his throw-face level when he is in Penang. In ipoh too, he might have restrained himself from too embarrassing himself by maybe mere 5%? Haha.        

Name: Yong Ta Lung
Description: He could be described as the most inactive member in the gang during high school. Strictly speaking, he might not be in the same gang with us during high school. Same to Kah Joon, he was more like a friend’s (zehao’s) friend at that time. The opportunity to strengthen the friendship was gone when he went to MRSM while form 4. Honestly I don’t really know him back then. Of course, we were still friends, just not much a close friend.   
Recent: Our friendship would have remained the same or worse if I had not gone to KL for my internship.  Different from others, he was the one gang mate that I hang out most frequently with when I was in KL. And from there, I began to know him more. And thus, most of his personality will be described in this ‘Recent’ section. I realize he is quite a thoughtful person. And somehow he can maintain a non-hostile position. In other words, he seldom makes people hate him (at least that’s what I think).  A bit similar like Joon Heng, he knows more how to ‘deal with people’. He is very tolerant and thus making others feel comfortable with him. Well, maybe we still aren’t very close, that’s why he did not irritate me yet, or probably it’s just his nature. Same like Kean Zhi, he is one of the most punctual members here.  And unfortunate to him, he usually has to wait for our late arrival due to his punctuality.

Conclusion
You might want to ask the reason I write this post. Frankly, I’m not so sure. Probably, in my final year, I feel stressed and it makes me start to appreciate friends. Or maybe, I simply want to kill time. In my opinion, the old friends are the purest friend. We become friends because we want to be friends. Sad to say, new friends (after entering uni) aren’t that ‘pure’. Although it may not be true, but I think most of our friendship are based on either common goals, mutual benefits or various situations rather than based on a true friendship. It’s not to say they aren’t good friends or they are not trustable. It’s just the feeling, it’s different. This gang I am having gives me the feeling of the naïve and pure friendship. And it is often stress-free when being with them. Well, contradict to the people’s common understanding towards the friendship/gang, I don’t really tell them my secrets or ‘heart problems’. When there’s problem, there comes sadness. I want to maintain this gang/group to be the stress-free and a gang of Joy. I don’t want to pollute it with my stressful problems. (except studies matters, which I almost shoutout everyday recently)  
Although I’m the third oldest in the gang, I feel like I am being taken care by them, especially by Kean Zhi, Joon Heng and Ta lung. And of course, without Ze Hao, Kah Joon and Tet Khiun, it will be so much less of fun in the group. I know maybe I am the ‘dictator’ of the group, maybe the most sarcastic member of the gang, maybe the fiercest person among all of us. I am grateful that you all can accept my bad behavior. Tell me if you think I have been offended you too much. I will try to change (try only). Lol.   
I sincerely hope our friendship will last, because it really has much enjoyable memory with you guys. Especially for Kah Joon and Tet Khiun who will be the future doctors, most likely they will either be arrogant or too busy to entertain us in the future. Lol. Anyway, thank you all of you for being my friends and providing me happiness. I really treasure our friendship! And good luck for our futures.

Anti Social

I got to admit i'm having the 'anti-social mind' after my internship. It's weird though, i used to be so (too/over) friendly last time. And now, sometimes i just lazy to talk to some people. Fortunately, i am still as usual to those old buddies. But to those stranger-friends, i really tired of 'entertaining' them. Sometimes, when I saw them ahead, i would pretend i didnt see them by looking elsewhere or pretend thinking something. Of course, it's unavoidable to greet them by waving my hand slightly or a smile when we have a direct confrontation. It would be a bit rude to ignore people when they know you saw them.

Sometimes, when people invite me for some gathering or events, i would always reject the invitation. Unless it's a bunch of close friends (which rarely the case), i will not attend. Usually it's more to a situation in which a few close friends together with a few stranger-friends. And those stranger-friends are the reasons that i declined the invitation.

Hard to deny, some friends are getting more distant. They are degrading from Friends level to Stranger-friends. How could one keep the friendship working without interacting with each other?

The greatest problem of all, is i dun even try to change this anti social mind. Though i do feel quite lonely often, i do not intend to change the way it is. And i'm totally okay with the current situation.

Anyway, after my short analysis, i figure the reason of being antisocial could be one or combination of those:
1. After internship, things become dull and less interesting, thus losing the socializing spirit.
2. My batchmates are having their internship now, which makes me pretty lonely in uni. The ratio of close friends to stranger-friends is imbalance.
3. My seniors had graduated while there are many other young and super young juniors around. It makes the ratio of people-i-know to people-i-dunno imbalance.
4. I simply getting older, and not as enthusiastic as before.

Should I change?

a little emo for unknown reason.

I am feeling a little emo for unknown reason. Usually, I would guess that the emoness is related to academic. But i feel there's more than that. Something else is bothering me, but i do not know what the something is. This is annoying. z.z

Good Luck Huh?

I thought i become stupid after internship. Not only stupid, but lazier too. Basically the equation of studies is like this:

Academic Performance = Smart * Hard Work (Effort spent on studying)

In other words, to achieve the same result, smart people don't need to study that hard while not-that-smart people have to study harder. And now, refer to the first paragraph, i have not only bcome stupid'er but also lazier. Hmmm.. based on the equation, my academic performance should be dropped like shit. BUT, amazingly, it didn't. Good luck huh?

Perhaps i'm not that stupid as i thought. My intelligence somehow remains after all those rotten days. Quite unlikely, but possible. Or maybe I'm not that lazy as i thought. But that's impossible, i know how lazy i am. Or the last possiblity is due to pure luck?

Honestly, for the first test, I scored quite well, better than i expected. If you count the average, out of three tests i actually score an average mark of 9.8/10. Frankly, i was a bit amazed by myself. And i admit that i didnt study very hard. So what? i am still smart or i'm just lucky?

I knew being arrogant will later has its consequences. And after i got an A for my internship, I don't really have much worries (except for the annoying project). Should I continue rotting myself? Well, i know the answer in rational wise, moral wise, society wise and common sense wise, the answer is no. But..  

Back to issue, i think it is really just lucky.. I can foresee some A- this semester. It's time to drop my cgpa, or like some fellows said, "it's time to balance up your cgpa"  Balance up? Balance down will be more appropriate.

Blog Name Changed

Obvious, isn't it?  I just changed my blog name.
Doesn't it sound more adult?  I'm already 21... Dunno why, feel a bit sad when i typed that sentence. haha.
Oh yeah, i will also add label to every blogpost now. So you can kind of guess what kind of content it is about.

Btw, happy mooncake festival! :-)

My Resident Evil Dream

This awesome dream happened last night. In the beginning of the dream (at least i thought it was the beginning), I was in this room. Many green waste and bad odour. Well, i was in a dream (which i dunno at that moment), i totally dunno why was i there and what i were doing there. I saw a few of my friends or colleagues (i knew i know them, but they arent anyone in the real world), they are cleaning up the place. I dun exactly know what activities they are doing. Then, there is this warning or reminder to tell us something like final reminder thingy.

I felt sick, it's hard to explain, a bit hard to breathe and wanted to cough and vomit or so. So, i wanted to get some fresh air. I opened the door to the exit, which i wondered why was it so hard to open. Then i went out, and i saw my colleagues all yelled at me. but i couldnt hear them... And suddenly, i mean really suddenly, i know what all these are about. We are infected with virus, we are supposed to stay at the room to self 'cleaning', yeah, i mean suicide so that the virus will not get spreaded to outside world.

I wanted to get back to the room, but it was too late, the door couldnt be opened anymore. And cruel indeed, i saw my friends in the room were all burned alive. I was not really sad at the moment, though i could somehow heard their scream of pain. I felt guilty, coz literally, i spread the virus to the outside world. I continue coughed a while, and have the feeling of nausea. I gotta tell someone else, and i looked like a zombie. I went to the main gate and trying to search for someone that i could tell what had happened. But they are just general public, and i do not know them, so i fainted a while on the ground.

I woke up due to the strong flashes, i opened my eyes and found many reporters taking picture in front. and there are a huge crowd staring at me with police or so. Yeah, yeah, i know i look like a zombie but i was not yet a zombie. Anyway, i found the company's CEO or what among the crowd. She definitely looks like a resident evil character. Anyway, i was still inside the building and the crowd was outside the building separated by the main gate. The CEO came forward and talked to me (she knows me, we are friends, i guess). Then i told her what happened, about the experiement failure, and the virus spread and what she should do. And i feel like dying.

She nodded her head and back away.. After i achived my mission, which is telling the last words, i stop struggling and lie down and died. And here's the part i woke up from dream. Awesome dream right? Luckily i didnt continue dreaming seeing how i bcome zombie and bite ppl and transform other ppl to zombies and continue bite ppl's scene. that will be a geli, even though the zombie is myself.

This story actually brings me some meaning. In some of the cases, we made mistakes accidentally but not intentionally. It's who to be blamed if things happen like that? Hmm.. i certainly blame myself for causing the virus spread. but.. by blaming myself, how does it help the situation? it doesnt. And since it already happens, what can i do to prevent the virus spread? nothing. hmmm~

Due Date.

alert: this post is very not interesting. bcoz i'm actually writing wat i'm thinking, jz to release stress maybe. i didnt try to use words and sentences that could sound entertaining nor interesting to the readers. so, i dun recommend u to read, but if u insist reading it, i couldnt do anything.

Yesterday night (Thursday 10pm), one of my groupmate told me (after i asked her things related to the project) that we had to submit a progress report on coming Monday. I really 'love' the lecturer, she didnt even tell us this, and she posted this up in elearning when we were off to raya holiday. And ppl with conscious minds know that people wont go to elearning during holiday except those insane ppl. (what? u are one of them? sorry, but... no excuse, u are indeed insane if u go elearning during holiday) 

Okay, so what now? we had done NOTHING for the project. So how are we going to submit a PROGRESS report while we had no progress at all? hmm.. worried, and a bit panic and alot lot of stress. I'm telling my groupmates, they dun nid to sleep on sunday night. We have to rush the report by hook or by crook, maybe creating some false progress or craps, i dunno! but we have to fix this! However, i know, last minute work is always bad, and cant score. So, i'm feeling sad. Sad + stressed are deadly!

Now is saturday early morning (3am), and why didnt i start doing it on friday? reason? i couldnt access elearning. and now i could access elearning (at 1am), and i dun want to do. reason? no mood. what does that mean? no cure! stressed but want to start doing it... and the only way to solve the 'stress' is to start doing it. but i'm not doing it, so i continue feel stressed. i shud slp, right? but i dun feel like sleeping? stupid? yeah. i wanted to delay.. to later.. and later and later.. this sem i always delaying work. why? i dunno. bad? yes. fix it? no. zzzz

ok, whatever, jz to type the first thing came into my mind. this post is special. i didnt think what i'm going to write. i'm writign what i am thinking at the moment. so, it could be a bit confusing, u know la, brain processes thing quite fast and complicated. anyway, that's all for this post. wasted ur time reading it? i think so.  let me now add an alert in the beginning of the post to warn u all not to read this post.

Those Birthday Cards

Do you keep the birthday cards people gave you? I am, at least for a period of time. I was asked by my mom to clean up those birthday cards. On my first thought, i was planning to continue keeping them. However, i understand those cards cannot be kept forever, one day i'm going to get rid of them anyway. Thus, i decided to throw some of them.

Of course, there are cards more 'valuable' than the others. Those cards with 'forwarded messages' were thrown without mercy. For some closer ones, they might deserve to be kept longer. I was reading through all those cards before i decide whether to get rid of them. And HERE COMES THE MAIN POINT OF THE BLOGPOST:

Reading back those cards, it makes me recall many blissful events and friendship. I even got amazed by how close we were last time. Those memory are just so worth remembering. Seeing the closeness we had last time, comparing to the strange and distant friendship we are having now, I am puzzled how could this happen. Nevertheless, I am not sad about it, i understand most relationship fades after sometime. I am glad that at least we had that memory with us and i am grateful that you participated in part of my life.

I never doubt the influence power of friendship. i proudly admit everyone of you helps shaping me to what i am now. (lol, as if i am giving a speech after earning a great achievement). Be good or bad, I thank you all for building my character and continue building it. I know i might be different from how i was last time, i might be more snobbish, more annoying, more impolite maybe? Anyway, i just want to say although i might give up or let go of some fading friendship, but i wont reject any friendship. (i know no 'but' after 'although', it just sounds right) If you feel that our friendship is fading or faded, and you want to rescue it, please inform me, we can do it together!

Of course, saying things is easier than doing them.  I'm not going to guarantee all 'rescue' operations are going to succeed but, at least we try! So, just give me a call (not recommended, i dun really like being called, fyi),  sms, or a message through facebook/msn will do. As long as I am not busy, i will entertain you. :)

Above paragraph may lead to one question from others: "Why not you take initiative to send message or call others instead?" Answers for this question may lead to another long blogpost, but anyway i will answer a little bit here. Yes, i did take initiative sometimes. Some of them turn into a great conversation but some of them just become awkward. It's hard to explain. Besides, there is another one more reason, a critical one: recently i get a little bit anti-social. Lazy to talk to people, lazy to meet new people, lazy to mix with others .... i dunno why, maybe that's what happen after you have a gf? haha. that's just a joke. (though it possibly makes sense, lol) Think about it, after knowing her, i almost never sms anyone else besides her. Power of love?? LoL

Getting a little bit out of topic, anyway, feel free to contact me if you think we should have a rescue operation on our friendship. My phone number is 012-389826312. (if you notice, the number has more than 10 digits. this means.. i am giving a fake number! Please la, I'm not that friendly till reveal my numbers to everyone. Later, too many people want to meet me, then i will have less time to do our 'rescue operation'. lol... before u puke, let me explain that this self-boasting characteristic are something i learned from colleagues during my internship.) Anyway, if you notice, it is getting more and more out of topic, with more and more craps. Just for your information, the word 'anyway' is a very powerful word to divert us back to the main point. So, anyway, i think i'd conveyed all messages i wanted to deliver. All sentences after this sentence are craps.. But if you insist reading it, you can proceed reading it. Dont say i didnt remind u ya.

Losing weight... again~

Haiz.. lost weight again. Not much though.. just a bit. but that certainly is indicating me something. I suppose it is not much a big secret. Okay, my weight is 53 kg currently (it could be 52.5 kg jz now, but well, sometimes i choose to lie to myself, pretty normal right?) and my height.. assuming i never get taller since i last measured, shud be 173cm. Guess what's my Body Mass Index (BMI)? Mine is 17.7. To be slightly fit into a normal category (based on malaysian standard), one has to be at least 18.5 to be barely called NOT underweight. How bout urs, calculate urs and compare with mine (weight(kg)/height square(m)), not many have bmi that is lower than me. (i know there are skinnier ppl around, and i feel sorry for them). Okay, so now what?

So, now what? My heaviest record in my life is 54.5kg. I wished i could say 55, but No.. it's still far from it. It's so freaking difficult to gain that 1 or 2 kgs. I gotta eat till i feel tortured then only can increase 0.5 - 1kg at maximum. Ppl say go eat and gym. yeah i know, u gain the 'fat/protein/flesh/energy/meat/watever' from the food and train them to become muscle. But i dun even have the flesh to be trained with. my final goal is to reach 60kgs, then i will b satisfied and would not complain further. And for this year, i wish for 56kgs, which i know it seems like a dream. Even 55kg i aso couldnt break it. 

Anyway, i know what's the true problem here, besides my abnormal metabolism rate or if cacing pita exists in my body.  I dont do exercise; i ate supper; i love fried food and fast food; and i'm not gaining weight. Great~ some ppl might even jealous. Back to the true problem of this, i think mainly is bcoz of my diet: i don't eat breakfast. and i take very few meals and i dont eat snacks. (but i dun und why i ate so much supper before slping and high consumption of fried and fast food never make me fat) Ppl say, eat more. I obviously love to eat more. But i dun want to torture myself to eat more. Doesnt it seem stupid for me to force myself to eat more and i am actually feeling tortured bcoz of eating more? Waste money some more... :/ Perhaps, i shud just dump some food into my mouth every morning regardless how 'no appetite' i am.

Actually, there are quite a lot of female frens who actually told me i look fine as i am now. They told me there's no need to feel bad for the current weight. And i did kinda accepting the fact that i'm not a weight gainer (i know i didnt try as hard as possible, but like i said, i dun wan to torture myself to eat like a great white shark). Perhaps i look just fine now? any opinion? from girls? (i think i'm more concern with their opinions) and from guys? (get some opinion from same gender wouldnt cause harm as well) 

This is another late night post, and tada~ 4am after i posted this out. I wonder sleeping late would cause weight lost or not? lol. Sometimes, i just dun understand why is it so easy to lose weight and so hard to gain weight? i mean.. it should be balanced what. The lose weight rate should be equal to gain weight rate. If i cant gain weight easily, Fine~ but why would i so easy to lose weight? so unfair, but the world is ... never Fair, lol.

Today is Unbelievable!!!

What happened today was bizarre. Seriously, you wouldnt believe what I'm going to tell you now. Should i say, things were very smooth today? or.. overly smooth? Maybe my luck today is extremely good.

It happens in the morning when I failed to wake up to my 8am class, I woke up at 9am instead. And the class was cancelled. This was just the beginning.

Later I had a group presentation that was 20% coursework marks. I didnt do any preparation and I just came up with inpromptu speech which AMAZINGLY impressed the lecturer. He said very well done for the impromptu speech and complimented me. omg.. so shy that time.

Then,  in the afternoon. When no cafetaria in UTP opens (fasting month), and i was suffering to starvation, suddenly my juniors bought me a KFC. lol. so touching. It was like you receive water when u are in desert. 

Then in the evening, while i finished bathing, i found a 'hidden' rm50 under my bed. It was so weird, unbelievable right? Suddenly bcome rich for no apparent reason.

And just now, i read in elearning that tomoro test was cancelled! lol. so lucky! But that's all for this post, i hope there will be more fortunate events happen later, but too bad, i still gonna continue studying.

Oh ya, forget to mention! i won a I-phone from Digi today. Always the smarter choice!

---the end---

 Ps: Did i just say you are not going to believe what i said? If you didnt believe, you are smart! (in a sense). Let's analyze how well you understand me: firstly, I NEVER fail to wake up to class. NEVER! Secondly, i would NEVER not prepare for a presentation. Thirdly, UTP cafeterias will still open in fasting month.  Fourthly, i will not go and check 'under my bed' for no reason. Even now if the money is really there, i wouldnt know as well. Fifthly, do u think i will still continue studying if test was cancelled? Lastly, i forgive u if u believe everything before, but if u still believe me that i won an Iphone today.... i'm speechless d. Will a person that lucky? and if i'd won one, surely i will be shouting it in facebook d. lol. Anyone get 'zha dao'?  kekeke.

Jealousy

Jealousy is something really dangerous. It helps building evil desire... So, we should not be jealous of what others have. but treasure and appreciate what we already have. 

Oh... sure i know that. But, i am still jealous.. This proves that... theory is just simply a theory. In real life, it might not be applicable. Same to my case, i know that's bad and what i should do, but still, i am jealous. lol. "Why i cant be as good as him/her in that field?"  "Why he/she can did so well on that aspect?" Hmm.. jealousnya!

I understand no one is perfect. Definitely i have strengths that others do not have. But still, i am jealous. lol. Jealous of not having some personality or characteristics or skills that i wish to have. You might want to say: yeah.. why dun u work hard to gain those skills instead of doing this useless and unnecessary jealous-ing? Sure, of coz i know that. Being jealous isnt going to help or improve anything. It's just a negative and discouraging feeling. I knew all that! but still! i am jealous.

I must be better than them! kiasu behaviour.. i guess that's the only way to make me stop jealous-ing.. I wonder 10 years later, when i read back this post, would i feel that i behave overly immature and childish? hmm~

oh~ i hate being jealous. zzz

What should wei han do in a pleasant afternoon?

Before answering the question, let's have a background intro on Wei Han. Anyway, Wei Han is me (jz in case u duno) He is 21 years old and in his final year. He likes to play pc games... and that usually drives him mad while he's playing. Mad in a sense that he wil ignore everything else. His other interest is reading novels; he is even more mad while reading novel. He wont stop reading until he finished the novel and that usually will consume him 3-5 hours per book.

Wei Han doesnt like study. but he is forced to when there's quiz or test. He doesnt like to sleep either (if possible). However, energy drains too fast sometimes. He only slps when he's tired. Online and listen to music is what he will do when he lazy to study and he feels guilty to play games or read novels.

So, here's the question: 

If you are Wei Han, what will you do in a pleasant afternoon if you dont have class? (He has a test, a presentation and a report to submit next week)
A) play pc games
B) read novels
C) study
D) sleep
E) online + listen music


Discussion:

To answer this question, you have to think like Wei Han. Please choose your answer before you read the following. (dont cheat)

Choose A? play pc games... so tempting! however, this is what irrational Wei Han will do. To waste a pleasant afternoon like this? no way.

Choose B? Read novels? even irrational Wei Han wont do this. Read novels will drive him insane, he knows it. So, unless he is very free, he wouldnt read novel. Since next week, he has to submit report, have a test and presentation, the only reason he will read novel is because he is CRAZY already! 

Choose C? Study! Wei Han hates studying. but... ...  there is no 'but'. lol. He simply wont study unless he is very stressed. And Wei Han does not like to study in the afternoon, just for your information.

Choose D?  Sleep... Bingo, that's the right answer. Explanation will be given later.

Choose E? online + listen music. Wei Han will do this if he has limited time. Eg: he has a class in 30 mins time. This is simply the most flexible timing activity of all. He didnt really enjoy online+listen music as much as playing computer and reading novels. 

Answer: D! Why? For a wise Wei Han, he will sleep in the afternoon. (Afternoon is great for nap, isn't it?) Everyone knows, rest is a preparation for longer journey. And that's the whole point. Playing games will exhaust him. Reading novels will destroy him. He hates studying in the afternoon. And he wouldn't want to online and listen music if he has so much time. So, sleep is the best answer.. Sleeping is like pausing his time, increasing his energy for later activities. With enough sleep, he can sleep later at night. With enough sleep, he can focus on doing his work. 

Satisfied with the answer? ;)  Told ya, u gotta think like Wei Han. lol. Ever wonder what i chose today? I chose A... i'm the irrational Wei Han today. so regret for choosing that now. :(

A Sucky Presentation

Jz had a really terrible group presentation this morning. OMG.. it was so bad. I am sure none of the audience actually knows what we are talking about. 

You know humans,... love to blame the others.. So am I. It's not that I did no mistake. But i myself think that i was doing okay. It's by default my fault for trusting the groupmates can perform according to my standard. I suppose a group rehearsal is really needed. 

I actually sent an email to other groupmates regarding to the weaknesses in the presentation. I hope they do not mind. My purpose of sending that email was not to provoke them, nor to make them guilty. It's for our own sake, since we are going to have another presentation several weeks later. Seriously, if they are not my groupmates, i wouldnt even care how good or how bad they performed. Sincerely admit, i am selfish. I want my group to perform better so that we can get better marks. It's not that i will simply advise other groups, to tell them their mistakes and make them angry with me for telling the truth.

Kiasu style. I hate other groups perform better than us! lol. But i know we will do better next time if i could govern the presentation more. Lesson learned. and let's hope my groupmates never read my blog. haha.. else they might not feel good regarding this post. My email sent was a  bit more polite while this is the ugly truth. (btw, "the ugly truth" was quite a nice movie)

Since it's over, let's keep our finger crossed that our marks are not too bad. I myself will give the group 6/10 for the presentation. I hope either the lecturer's standard is lower or he is kinder in giving marks. lol. i want 8/10 or the least i could stand is 7/10. please please. haha.

F.I.R's Songs (飞儿乐团的歌 ) PART 2

Part two of the previous post, I will share with you and recommend some FIR songs that are very very nice! Also, I will be create a list of my favourite FIR songs, let's see if we have the same liking or not. (this time I typing with English due to a simple reason: I am lazy)

Let me present to you the songs of FIR! Please see the following table:


The table shows the list of songs based on their albums. The songs are not arranged according to its track sequence. Music (without lyrics) are excluded from the list. Never heard of some of the songs listed up there? Let me categorize the songs for you.



The table shows the list of songs organized based on its song type/genre. It is sorted by random order within the category. The table probably means nothing to you right? because you have no idea what is type A,B,C and so on. Below will be some explanation for the types/categories:

  1. Type A contains songs that are fast in rhythm and usually they are sung with a cheerful mood. In other words, those are 'happy' songs. Some of them are related to love relationships, friendships, or it could be some random things. "你的微笑,get high and 纪念日" are among my favorites in this category.
  2. Type B is harder to explain. They are similar in the sense that their main focus is on the chorus (u might say, ahh~ crap.. most songs focus on chorus). Type B is type B because they cant really fit into any other category. I would say "Fly Away, Neverland and Find My way"'s chorus sounds quite the same. And for "Change,I can't go on and 猫头鹰的梦", their chorus makes the listeners very got 'feel'. They aren't emotional songs, they just very 'got feel'. Listen them on your own and see if you would agree with me.
  3. Type C is simple to explain. They are love DUET songs, especially suitable for couples who love to sing K. haha.
  4. Type D contains emo-sad/touching songs. And this kind of songs is the one I love most! Only these type of songs can have long survival period and listeners wont be easily feel bored. They are songs that the longer you listen, the more you will like the songs.
  5. Type E contains songs that the overall song is flat, without 'climax', peaceful and usually slow. Some said they are boring songs. What a cruel way of saying it. Actually, the song "塔罗牌" shouldn't really fit in this group. It is not really a 'flat' song but rather a bizarre song. The songs in this category usually are not favored by people. Most people dislike the songs in this group. However to me, "让我们一起微笑吧" is a really incredible song though almost no one likes this song. lol. Believe me, you listen to it 20 times in a quiet environment. You will love it.
  6. Type F is another kind of emo songs. but they are emo-rock songs. They might not be very 'rock' like you expected. But to differentiate this category with Type D category, these songs are usually not 'sad and touching' but 'alert and dissatisfaction'. The chorus are often sung with shouting/screaming with dissatisfaction or warning (or motivation).
Okay, now my top 5 songs:
no.1: 眷恋
no.2: 真爱地图
no.3: 月牙湾
no.4: 让我们一起微笑吧
no.5: 我们的爱
(almost all are from type D, those are the boring-proof songs)

Okay, let me recommend some really quite nice songs but you probably never heard of because the company hardly promotes and advertises these songs:
  • 眷恋
  • I can't go on
  • Hero
  • 真爱地图
  • Change
What are you waiting for? Faster go download la. lol. But mind that, our tastes could be greatly different, so don't blame me if you find the songs i recommend you aren't nice. But seriously, all my favourite songs now, i did not really like them when I first heard those songs. There are songs that initially you feel they are very nice but later you will get bored of them (such as 荆棘里的花). But for the 5 songs i recommended, they are boring-proof songs. The more you listen, the more you like them. So, why not just give them a try and don't give up so fast. You need to listen a few more times before you can really fall in love with them. Enjoy the songs! :D

F.I.R's Songs (飞儿乐团的歌 ) PART 1

至今,飞儿乐团已经推出了五张专辑。 身为他们的忠诚的粉丝,他们那全五张专辑都是超赞的!今天这篇部落格文章将为大家分享及介绍他们的种种好歌。 首先,先让我们看看他们推出的是哪五张专辑:1 - FIR 同名专辑 : 相信大家都非常熟悉它的主打歌, 《lydia》 及 《fly away》, 他们的成名曲。 第三主打则是家喻户晓的 《我们的爱》


2 - 无限 :这张专辑的包装比起上一张好了许多, 应该是他们的知名度提高了不少吧。 第一主打 《无限》 及 第二主打 《千年之恋》 也是蛮有知名度的。 第三主打则是 《刺鸟》, 非常好听的一首歌。



3 - 飞行部落 : 飞行部落以《飞行部落》 为主打歌, 带点民族风, 听了心情爽朗。 第二主打是《天天夜夜》, 他们第一首收录在专辑的合唱歌,也是他们开始谈恋爱后的歌。第三主打则是《雨樱花》,比较愉悦的一首情歌。


4- 爱歌姬 :爱歌姬的第一主打《月牙湾》把大家遗忘了的FIR从记忆中唤醒 (当然除了我,从没遗忘过他们), 超好听! 第二及第三主打歌则是《三个心愿》和《需要你的爱》, 两首歌都是合唱恋曲。本人喜欢《三个心愿》多些,因为是阿沁唱的, 哈哈。



5- 让我们一起微笑吧:最新的专辑,但也是最低宣传率的专辑。我想大概没多少人知道,它的第一主打歌是《向日葵盛開的夏天》,一首蛮感人的歌。 第二主打则是《We Are》, Rock 歌却又带点神秘感。第三主打比较出名,《荆棘里的花》, 赞!



6. 阿沁 - 梵谷的左耳: 当然也不能错过阿沁的个人专辑。本人也不怎么懂哪首是主打, 但里面的歌都还蛮不错的。



好吧,就写到这儿。 下一次再跟大家推荐他们一些'不为人知'的好歌。;)


ps: so lazy to continue type chinese words. haha.

tada! all the albums!

My favourite food in KL

Just to find excuse for myself not to study, here's my second post of today. I think recently i wrote too much 'feeling' posts. So, this time let's try some descriptive post: a post on nice food that i tried in KL while i had my internship. For those who think i am rich after internship, this is the reason why i am poor. The below are my favourite restaurants that I've been:

1. Chilis

I love chilis.. i don't mean it literally. I hate spicy by the way. Chilis has quite a good environment and it's available in Mid Valley and KLCC, kinda easy-accessible. Been to Chilis 4 times during the internship and i found that my favourite food is the Cajun Club Sandwich. (others too expensive d but this is still affordable)

Cajun Club Sandwich

2. Paddington House of Pancakes

I love the pancakes... If you are beginner and you don't know which category is nice, i would advise you to choose pannekoek section, you wont regret. Been here 5 times and tried many different categories, and yet i still feel that pannekoek category is the best.

pannekoek section right page

3. Manhattan Fish Market

I think i tried the food here 4 times. The first time was nice, coz it was under Chinese New Year promotion, so it has a value set that costs around rm26. The other times, mainly tasted their set of 2 or 3 persons. Very heaty and mostly fried seafood. The one that i usually ordered is seafood platter.

Seafood platter

4. TGI Fridays

I love TGI Fridays and I am still craving for it. The reason is because i only ate there ONCE! The timing is always not right as the promotion is only limited on weekdays and I gonna WORK at that time. The promotion of rm29.90 for 1 main dish and 1 side dish is able to fill up more than 1 person's stomach. Please bear in mind. My friend and I ate one set per person and the result is: all the french fries and some other foods were dumped into the rubbish bin. Dont waste food like we do. If i'm not mistaken, the one i ordered is tuscan chicken melt.

Tuscan Chicken Melt

5. Dragon-I and Canton-I

Dragon-I's famous 'xiao long pau' is a must-try. Though it's quite expensive, it costs around rm2.5 per bite. The other food are jz okay okay. Canton-I famous for its wanton mee. And one of my colleague craze for it, so we always eat the food there. One of my senior colleague loves the porridge there, but i never tasted it before. Dragon-I, i guess i only tried twice or thrice but canton-i maybe around 8-10 times. The price is much affordable in canton-i. Wanton mee only rm12, cheap right?

yes.. the tiny bite costs rm2.5
the wanton of canton-i. thumbs up

6. Carl's Junior (jr.)

Compare to McD, u can ask McD to close their stall already in terms of tastiness. However, McD still survives due to its price leadership, two or 3 times cheaper than the standard set in Carls Jr. The portion of Carl's Jr is quite big. And dont get cheated when they ask you if you want to go 'regular' or 'large'. You just tell them, you want 'small' instead of 'regular'. 'Regular' size requires rm1.20 or rm1.50 more. If you have the same stomach size as me, 'small' size should be enough to make you shout: "Very Full!". The fries are very nice. And the beef burgers actually taste nicer (in my opinion).


Sadly, the real burger doesnt look this awesome. Portobello-mushroom burger


In conclusion, these are my favorites. There are some other restaurants like Delicious, Kim Gary, The Appartments, Madam Kwan which I find it okay okay only. Not to mention the cheaper scale food like Burger King, Subway and A&W. (btw, i love the curly fries and root beer of A&W). There are some that i wanted to try but no frens are willing to accompany me like Dome, Tony Romas, Italianese and etc. But right now, right now, i am really craving for TGIF! I dont mind eating Chilis and Carl Jr too. :P

Feedback on Singapore Trip

(ALERT: Pure-text post since i do not have even one pic. It was mainly a 'feeling-post'. So it's not so advisable if u were reading this post just to get tourism information. )


Yeah~yeah.. i know it was one month ago. But it is better late than never, right? (i am supposed to study now but.. uh~huh... u know le.. people always try to find excuses to avoid studying) It would be a short one. In fact, I did not intend to write this post in the first place. However, since it was quite a memorable trip, i suppose i should somehow dump this memory into this blog (see the name of my blog).


Okay.. it was actually an unplanned trip (to me). The story began with one pleasant afternoon, kean zhi and I went to visit Talung selling eggs in Wisma Thrifty. Kind enough, we actually spent 3-4 hours accompanying him selling eggs. In our conversations, he mentioned that he planned to go Singapore with his fellow uni-mates. My eyes turned big when i heard that, I really longed to go for vacation during my short 'sem break'. (i was kinda upset as my LONG internship actually 'swallowed' two of my sem breaks, paralyzing me from going for vacations). The dates & duration of the trip are actually compatible to my schedule. I cant remember if talung invited me for the trip, or i thick-facedly self volunteered to join the trip. (well, we called it: Desperation)


I told Talung to ask his uni-mates if they were happy with me joining. And yeah, I was thinking "i'm gonna be alienated." but anyway, i didnt really mind since it wasnt the first time i join a fren with bunch of strangers in a vacation. Usually it turns out well with my friendliness.. (dun vomit, lol) To my surprise, Kean Zhi could actually make it to the trip. I always thought he had a serious budget problem and it did amaze me. Well, at least it wont be so weird if he's joining. I was happy with his accompaniment.


I love the trip actually. Coz i did not involve in any planning of the trip. Though my main 'function' is to swipe the credit card. (no wonder they glad to have me there) Again, Laziness - my fatal weakness.


The night before we went to Singapore was both exciting and awkward. The late arrival of Zen was really heart-stomping. I couldnt imagine if we really had to dump Zen if he couldnt make it in time. And yes, it was awkward too. I knew all talung's frens (zen, ken, wy) but we werent close, i admit. And we were supposed to socialize among each other. However, I was a bit lazy and had a tiny emo on that night; I actually avoided socializing with them. Poor Kean Zhi, i knew he was interested in knowing the journey and the itenaries but i made him slept early with me.


The first day, i was rather happy when we reached Singapore. We walked alot; and wandered around aimlessly while waiting to check in the hostel. We went to Bugis mall, Bugis Street and the famous 'zhen zhu fang' (lol) and some other places. According to Talung, Zen was supposed to be quite talkative and cheerful. But i wondered why he wasn't anything like it. In fact, Wy and Ken actually talked more than him. The aimless walk was tiring, and due to the 'earth-shaking' experience while sleeping on the train, i went into deep slumber once we checked in. We kinda slept overtime. I felt weird when nobody tried to wake up when it was about the time to 'depart'. Anyway, we continued walking at night to explore (many many many many) malls in Singapore. Well, singapore really has a lot of malls. The problem was: shopping in Singapore is only fun provided you have the MONEY. When we returned to the hostels, the other tourists were already in their world of Inception. Felt guilty to disturb them from dreaming, I slept quite early. It was a shame that we couldnt have a cool 'night conversation' like the other vacations.


The second day was mainly on Universal Studio. All of us were excited as this was the main event. I believe pictures would describe better than words, so just refer to my fb photos or the main album from Wy, the photographer. Everything was nice to me. The show, the songs, the dance, I enjoyed all of them. Something worth mentioning was the Revenge of the Mummy. I'm not keen on riding rollercoasters due to height phobia. It was really cool for that game. A must-try. Another thing, the food in Universal Studio is blood sucking. To make urself feel comfortable, please forget the currency exchange rate at that moment. I actually felt sorry for Talung when Kean Zhi blamed him for eating at that bloodsucking chicken rice. How should I put it? It's not Talung's fault for suggesting eating there, i guess. And Kean Zhi had actually behaved better than his usual way. hmm~ (let's divert the topic now). Anyway, the Water Show was kinda below my expectations. It was like a child play... okay, it's not so bad. It's like a teenage drama. I did expect more than that (something like a small tsunami that splashes on the spectators, did i expect too much?) The Live show with Donkey was quite a waste of time. But since we had plenty of time to waste, i didnt mind watching that. I was quite fascinated with the host's charisma and I wondered if i could do equally good in the future.


The end of the Universal Studio trip was devastating. I could understand everyone was tired and moody (when a person is not in a normal/cheerful mode, i would presume it as moody/emo). And especially on the buying souvenir part, it was so hard to gather everyone around. So, i gave up finding people and instead i let others find me. Much easier task to be done. lol. My emoness began when the group was gonna separated by two, an unwanted event. But it was difficult as both sides were kinda insist on it. I wanted to watch song of the sea, but i wanted to sleep as well. My decision was made based on majority power. I didnt expect i would go emo on the trip but i did, a minor emo luckily. And poor Kean Zhi again, for him to receive my outburst temper while i was in a minor emo.


After saying goodbye to Talung and Zen, four of us quickly embraced our beds. Thinking that my mood will b better after a short nap in hostel, but unfortunately it didn't. I knew my emoness was foolish as it was based on no reason or some small issues that were not worthy to be emo at. I was glad that Talung and Zen weren't there that time, lol. i bet that Talung never seen me emo before. Anyway, we had a hard time finding ways to the destinations but my thoughts were somewhere further. If i'm not mistaken, i was thinking "why am I emo?" or other similar questions. And that made me more emo. So pls dont try that next time. lol. I admit, songs did sooth my emotion a bit. And once we reached the casino at Marina Bay, i proudly announced my moodiness gone! (not that i was excited to gamble in the casino) I was sorry again to Kean Zhi for repeatedly ignoring his "let's find food in casino" suggestion, causing him to have regrets over the trip. I didnt know casino got free food. This is just my first time ma~


I had a pleasant supper and nice conversation with kean zhi and wy.  The food was nice, perhaps the best in singapore that we had ever tried. And apparently wy has an obsession towards chinese tea for i-dunno-why reason. As i seldom indulge myself with tea and coffee, it does makes me feel awake and energetic. Perhaps it was the last night in singapore, we spent some enjoyable moment in the common 'living room' of the hostel. Enjoyable moment as in zen, ken and talung playing wii, kz online or dunno doing what, wy reading and play with his camera. It is always my hobby to see people playing games (exclude sports), it should be an interest that i had since young. Seeing Talung playing game was funny, especially when he was winning, since he was one of our worst gamers in our gang.. haha.. (just kidding, i know u pretty geng in plant vs zombie and the SIMS!) I had a long conversation with Wy, and I was amazed that he could really talk a lot (of coz i'm more talkative, not a good thing though)


The third day was again a purposeless wandering. We window shopped the malls again. Well, we didnt really window shopped. The mission of that day was like "Explore all the malls". Again, i had a lousy and expensive lunch. and that's pretty much what we did in singapore until we travel back to Malaysia. The experience of taking bus back to Johor was funny. I didnt expect it to be like tat way. We had to get on the bus, then get off the bus, walk, get on the bus, get off the bus, walk, get on the bus...... Couldn't it to be a more efficient way of doing this? When we reached Johor, comparatively to Singapore, the mall in Johor was like a haunted house. It was creepy, silent, old + ugly and the haunted lift that u believe once u stepped in, u would never able to get out. 


There's one more thing: If you ever take train for long journey, please buy yourself a ticket with bed. The light in the train was super bright and I tried all my best to fall asleep in that train. And OMG! i will never do it again, complete TORTURE! If there's a video cam capturing all the sleeping styles and techniques we used in order to fall asleep, it would be the funniest video of the year.  Back to KL Central, everything seems normal. There's this 'back to reality' feeling. And i miss KL, i knew since my internship has ended, it wouldnt be easy and convenient to go to KL. And the trip was quite marvelous, though it might not be the best. And yeah, i did miss the travel-mates sometimes. Wy the photographer and tour guide, Zen the one who always get teased for his face (u all really cruel la) and Ken, the bright and shiny teeth! How about Kean Zhi and Talung? nah~ i will be seeing them quite often as long as they returned Ipoh.. haha..


I knew this post is contrary to what i've said just now. It was way longer than what i had expected. But you know you cant stop your thoughts while it is flowing like a river. What did i have in mind was written here. All are honest and sincere thinking, i did not filter; i did not edit. Sorry if it offended someone. and sorry if it makes you bored.
