Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Went to the cinema straight after the beach. The 9p.m. show was fully booked. This was the second time I waited for the reserved tickets to be opened for sale. The clock was ticking away and at 8:30p.m. sharp, I shoved the money and asked the ticketing lady to click faster. I shared with another family so that we could take the whole row. Boy, I was fast. If not it will be a waste of time waiting. That's a great show. I had been playing with Transformers since I was a toddler. In fact, I didn't even have Barbie dolls. I hate dolls. The human-like dolls freaked me out. Nightmare~!

I had an hour of free time before getting my tickets. Shopped at Cold Storage for the first time. I was a real 'jakun' looking at the imported food products. I was fascinated with the wide range of imported sauces which will definitely bring my cooking up another level. The things are quite expensive by a few cents... yes, I'm calculative.. but I will shop there again if I happen to be there. It's better than Tesco and Giant combine together.

There's No Barrier...

It was a lovely evening down at the beach. I was surprised when I saw my hut erected again. Earlier, the MPPP forced all of us to remove whatever structure that we have on the beach. Thus, the beachboys took down my hut or the MPPP workers will bulldoze it into nothing. Now that the authorities are too engross bickering in some other stuff, they're not bothered with the beach anymore. Anyway, Golden Beach Resort will not be complaining about us grabbing their watersports business as they will be going out of business in no time. Same goes to Lone Pine Hotel. The usual reason they gave - "Renovation". From that word "Renovation", you should understand that they mean changing management team and ownership. In simpler term, the present owner can't stand the financial loss anymore.
Again, I would like to stress that you do not have to be in complete beach attire to enjoy all the fun. I'll show you later how crazy I can be even with customers. Yes, there shouldn't be any barrier. I have met so many business people that they make themselves known to other people that they are the boss and they don't mingle around with other so-called 'normal' people. I think it shouldn't be that way. We're all humans. No hierachy. You boss, so what? Therefore, I always do it the different style. Make everyone feel comfortable and make the day an enjoyable and memorable one :)
At the Horse Fair, I did not have the chance to get upclose and personal with the horsie. But now at the beach, I have all the opportunity to do that. These are all thoroughbred but they're more like outcasts at the equestrian track. All the horses at the beach are from Australia and used to be race horses but they've hurt their legs pretty badly in races that they are no longer needed at the track. Love you, horsie!

Isn't that a lovely hut where you can sit and relax? There are a few more tables down at the beach. I sure have lots of stuff there. So, that's my second working place. My third working place is mobile - moving about - as long as there's Wifi. I'm planning to take Celcom Broadband so that I can work more efficiently. W1Max, build more towers please, so that the whole island can be connected with you, then I can upgrade the package I'm taking and carry the wireless modem everywhere, even keep myself connected at the beach. Erm... second thoughts, I don't think I want to be online at the beach. It will spoil all the fun :)
Okay, this is the beginning of the madness happening at the beach on Sunday. As I've said there's no barrier between boss and customers. I was included in their madness coz' I was the one who suggested the madness. They're more like old friends even though we've just met a while ago. Scroll down to enjoy "Madness @ The Beach"

Next, I'm contributing beach sand to GSC in Gurney.

My Dear and I..

My daughter.. self-confessed as she called me mommy. I gave birth to her at the age of 9 but I don't remember having sex at all. Maybe I was too young at that time. Crazy, you all actually believe? Well, she's doing her work....
then I felt like having a pic with her...bonding between mother and daughter
but then she wanted another pic with me...
Then, her vain-self appeared and we started cam-whoring using her handphone.. there must be more than 100 pics we took within an hour, cameras flashing away using three handphones and my camera.

Then, we dragged another vain pot and it became unstoppable

I'll grab the rest of the photos from their friendster. I can't upload all. Just too many pics and dear has more beautiful pics in her handphone. Let's go somewhere else and cam-whore... it's so great to be with the teenagers. Who's crazier? I think all of us are equally as crazy.

Rubiks 5 x 5

In the beginning, it looked like this ...
after a few minutes... it became like this...

Am I not a genius?

Hakuna Matata~

No worries~ I'm looking forward for the weekends... hehe :-D

I Can Do Far Better Than This!

It's great to be a networker again! I'm back! Back on track! Whooooaaa! It's just so great to work with your mouth ... I know I'm talkative but at least I earn money using my mouth and brain. See the group grows, the bank account grows as well and your social circle grows and viola! A perfect business life, family life, social life and personal life. Now, I will reveal to you my business partner who prospers me and will want everything good for me. I should set up the company with the name "Lord and I Co."... how come I've never thought of that earlier?

"With self-confidence you can do anything. Without it, you can do nothing."

Somebody said that it couldn't be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one
Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that;
At least no one ever had done it".
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
And the first thing we knew he's begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.
There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.
No one will be able to stand up against you all the days or your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.
[Joshua 1:5]
If you want a thing bad enough
To go out and fight for it,
Work day and night for it,
Give up your time and your peace and your sleep for it.
If only desire of it
Makes you quite mad enough
Never to tire of it,
Makes you hold all other things tawdry and cheap for it,
If life seems all empty and useless without it
And all that you scheme and you dream is about it,
If gladly you'll sweat for it,
Fret for it,
Plan for it,
Lose all your terror of God or man for it
If you'll simply go after that thing that you want
With all your capacity
Strength and sagacity
Faith, hope and confidence, stern pertinacity,
If neither cold poverty, famished and gaunt,
Nor sickness nor pain
Of body or brain
Can turn you away from the thing that you want,
If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,
According to your faith will it be done to you
[Matthew 9:29]

If you think you are beaten - you are
If you think you dare not - you don't
If you'ld like to win, but you think you can't
It's almost a cinch that you won't
If you think that you'll lose - you're lost
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow's will
It's all in the state of mind
If you think that you're outclassed- you are
You've got to think high to rise
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battle doesn't always go
To the swifter or faster man.
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.
If the Lord is pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a land flowing with milk and honey, and will give it to us.
[Numbers 14:8]
Tonight meet people. Saturday whole day work. Sunday work then meet people then work at the beach. Muahahahaha.... I'm back to be the workaholic but this time round I know how to find time to R-E-L-A-X... Wanna go out with me, remember to book ahead ya... so far calendar quite full already end of August also plan liao! For people I care and love most, I will squeeze you into my busy appointment schedule....

Truth Be Told..

Right now, I'm suppose to work. Yet, I'm multitasking. Chatting with Ellex and blogging away. The main reason why I have to stay away from the computer is because whenever I'm seated at one corner of my bed, I'm so comfortable surrounded with more than 10 pillows and teddy bears, that I become so lazy. I'm so lazy that I don't even bother to send out e-mails to market my own stuff. Yes, I have to admit that I'm so lazy I don't even do my work when I chat.

I'm doing all the wrong stuff. I can log in and log out of facebook more than 10 times a day. Sickening, right? Then, I can start clicking until I don't even know how I ended up on the site. Blog hopping. More like stalking, reading 'bout someone's daily electronic journals. But, the reason people blog is for others to read. My source of articles for a good read.

See, like right now, I'm blogging 'bout this utter nonsense. I better stay away from the computer. But I don't have the heart to cut off my Internet connection. It will be worse than the drug addicts going through cold turkey treatment. Now, I know why some people don't want to chat when they're actually online but doing some other stuff. I can see the orange light blinking away, waiting for my reply, but I'm just too tired to click and type a reply coz' when I start to reply, the other side will start talking and it's mean to say bye straight away. So, I just keep quiet.

Usually, whenever I'm awake, it's like the computer is calling me then I'll crawl to the other end of the bed, flick the main switch on and haih... start clicking away. Thus, the first thing I do in the morning is not brushing my teeth or emptying my bowels or even have a hearty breakfast but I'm online. And I'm too lazy to prepare breakfast for myself. It takes a whole load of self-encouragement to go to the gym. Positive thinking... have faith in yourself. I ended up talking to myself in front of the mirror as it actually works.

Now, I try my best to ignore the computer when I'm awake. I rolled down from the bed and make a quick move to the toilet. Then, glance at my computer and said, "I'm not gonna use you yet. Wait." Oh, man! LX Ting online.... alamatnya bersembang sepanjang hari. Memang tak productive. Eh, I'm not saying that chatting with you is a waste of time just that... argh! I don't know what to say. You remember you said you'll cut down on blogging and using MSN but we're still using it as much as last time.

Orang dulu-dulu sit at kopitiam, sembang over a cuppa. Orang modern like us, sembang melalui talian...

I Miss This~

Love the electric piano better than the wooden traditional piano. LX, your piano at home can send to museum liao, rite. How many years didn't touch liao har?

Lunch Date with Zurene

Kim Gary has improved by leaps and bounds. No more sheets of paper until we learned people don't even know how to order food. Left only two simple and colourful menus. But still took me at least 10 minutes to decide what to eat. In the end, I settled for Abalone and prawn something something... the name is too long, cannot remember. Hey, there's so much more other than abalone and prawns.. Zurene, you took my prawn without my permission. Didn't you see the horror in my eyes when you scooped my prawn out of my plate? You can take any food from my plate EXCEPT seafood and especially prawns. You CANNOT scoop prawns out of my plate. *Read this and remember when you're out with me for a meal. No scooping seafood from my plate unless I offer you one, which I NEVER do*
I was simply ecstatic when I saw that octopus, mussel, one little piece of fish cake, slices of abalone and prawns... the New Zealand cheese was great, too. By the time I finished the whole plate, any major movement threatened to spill the food out of my mouth. I was full to the neck. Where's my eating stamina? All gone. How am I going to go for buffet like that? HHhmmm... eh, add RM3 got a drink, dessert and mushroom soup, tapi no garlic bread also.... The other day at Yaw's Grille ada garlic bread but no mushroom soup.
That dessert, what I was eating also I don't know. Just put in the mouth and swallow. Since, there's no garlic bread, I ordered some fries.. kononnya four flavoured, mixed fries..
but tasted just like any ordinary fries.. I dipped those fries in the mushroom soup... not bad lar...
Girl, girl... I cannot understand how you can berhempas-pulas working for a company which you do not own. Your boss is just paying you the salary and even if he agrees to raise your salary, how much do you think it will be? That's all the reason why I do not want to work for people. Why limit yourself to a salary of a few thousand when the sky is actually your limit? Kesian, aku tengok. If me, I definitely will not work my ass off for a company which I do not even have a percentage of ownership. Even if I get part of the share, I won't want it. I will only work for something which I own 100%. No more, no less. Not worth all your effort put in, girl.

My Dream House..

Went to Cinta Sayang Resort in Sungai Petani. There are linked bungalows and terraces. I like the linked bungalows, at the price of RM335k. Not as pricey as in Penang. But location...haih... I still want Penang houses. I don't mind buying from both states :)People with negative thinking will say that,"No, I can't own that kinda house. I can't afford it. It's impossible. It's too expensive. It's meant for wealthy people. People like us will have to take a housing loan up to 25 years."

I almost fainted hearing 'bout a loan up to 25 years. For me, I'll take a flexy loan and finish it within 5 years or maybe lesser. I will tell you. Yes, I can afford it. Picture yourself in that house. Place yourself in there. You can own whatever you want to have just with the power of your imagination. I know it can be done because everything that I have now, all started from my imagination.

When I started the tuition, some say it's impossible for one person to handle everything. With the power of my imagination, I imagined myself running the whole show. I opened a branch in another year. Then, I run both smoothly. I opened another one. Yes, if I can manage three centres, why not I put my hands on something else.

I get to know 'bout jet skis. I imagine myself being the queen at the beach. I want to play at no charge at all. Within two weeks, I set up Run With The Wave Enterprise. So, who can tell me that I cannot do it? No one. If you think you can, you are able to, picture yourself in whatever situation you want, EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE! As a Christian, I do pray about it.

Now, I'm imagining about something else. Swimming in a pool filled with dollar notes... is that impossible? My answer is NO! It depends on how you control your mind.

Extremely Superstitious..

I wonder what's in the mind of some people. There's this one particular cousin-in-law of mine, you know the economy so bad, of course your business will be affected. You're not the only one being affected. Ask you to diversify, you don't want. See lar... I diversify until don't know go where liao...

Bro went to grandma's house. Then, put the keys on the altar. She screamed at bro saying that those keys put on the altar means locking her business - no business. What kinda crap is that? Hey, before my bro put those keys, your business already dwindling down... now you blame my bro??!!! Next time, I'm going to get a HUGE padlock, lock it and put on the altar. I see what you gonna say. I'll tell you I'm closing down your business for good.

What century liao... so superstitious.

Happy Father's Day

Can you imagine driving at 100 kmph with a cake on the lap? Not on my lap, obviously. How do you celebrate Father's Day? I really have no idea. The only thing I know is MAKAN - 'feilow-ship' with family untuk mengeratkan silaturahim sesama ahli keluarga tersayang. The moment I stepped into the house, throw my bag aside then dashed upstairs to the computer. Click here, click there. MSN cannot on, Internet Explorer cannot on. Aku jerit satu rumah. Streamyx not down also. The little icon blinking actively. Nobody's at home except for big ma and father. Alamatnya duduk macam itu, berkulatlah aku. After rolling on the bed for an hour, cannot tahan, crawled downstairs and take my PDA and called....
eldest sis... Come back, NOW! Memang now! They're just turning into the house. Then, keluar pergi jalan-jalan. Sungai Petani.... memang DEAD town. If I shift there and stay, bukan sahaja berkulat, malah menganggur. Boleh buka gerai jual cendawan dan anggur but no customers. Since Sunday is a schooling day, all 5 of us went to school to fetch my prince charming...
Baru first day of the schooling week, his white shirt and shoes all turn black... extremely black. Jatuh dalam toilet bowl arr? Last time my school shoes one month tak basuh still putih melepak. Ini menunjukkan I ni orang yang bersih. Suddenly, bro and I had the urge to eat roast duck. The only place selling the best and edible roast duck is down south. For the love of roast duck, bro drove us all from the north to the south... yummy!
Didn't want them to chop if not surely they'll take parts of the duck. So, brought it home and asked big ma to chop into pieces... big ma chopped, I pula makan terus on the spot...
I wonder whether we're celebrating Father's Day or celebrating me coming to visit? It's definitely all my favourite food... muahahhahaa.... I'm truly honoured to have all these..
Pacific Clams

Mushroom? *I don't want*
Ayam percik from Ayamas

Huge fish balls *I like but not my favourite*
Large XL prawns but too bad, it's not caught from the sea. These are reared in the sea. So, they don't taste as sweet as those prawns swimming freely in the sea. Thus, I didn't eat that many prawns this time round. Give me prawns that are sweet, aku boleh hentam sekali 2kg.
I don't eat pork but I definitely eat 'bak uan' and also 'bak kua'. Ironic, right?
Still, table too small. I like grandma's old house. Can fit in at least 30 tables or even more.
I'm always first to sit on the table and the last to leave. Slow eater not tham chiak. After dinner, terus buka gerai... no.. no.. don't get me wrong. We're not selling anything... we're just in for a few rounds of...RUMMY!!
I will never gamble with my own money. So, first round must win. It's always like that. During the last visit during Mother's Day, I won a miserable 10 cents. This time round, I didn't win anything but of course I didn't lose even a dime. I announced loud loud after the money I won finish, then I want to go home liao. Tepat-tepat 10p.m. my money memang habis. Next time should announce, after I empty all of your wallets, baru I balik... Cake-eating session now... Now, this one more like celebrating Father's Day. The cake survived the 45-minute journey...
For the two dads in the house... with their human accessories for photography session..
Papa... cut the cake, please. We're all salivating.. cakes from Eden, not bad.
The photo I like most... ta-da!! Family pic.. incomplete...yet still look perfect somehow...
