2006 Hopes

I was reading the Star today and there was an article about the things this writer hopes some changes in 2006...So then it struck me...i'm never good in following my yr resolution BS...i've been having new resolution for pretty much every yr but did not fulfill it..So..this yr i decided to not to have any resolution..period..just let things happen...if opportunity arrives..i'll just wing it..

Talking about opportunity, I was offered to join another dept earlier this month by a friend of mine..It was too good to be true...the pay is ok, the pipeline is there..the work is more interesting..the 1 week trip to Las Vegas this coming Jan...and basically every yr after that...crap...i'm must be dreaming...But in the end..I turned it down. I told this dude, sorry..i'm not prepared..coz i'm thinking to stay in the same role for at least 2 yrs...Well, I hope i'm not regretting my decision....

Next yr gonna an interesting yr..Since I'm not good in fulfilling my own's better for Malaysian to have a standard resolution spread among us...meaning..if we failed..we failed together..hehehe

1. Stop smoking..yeah rite!!
2. Civilized driving...not with one hand holding a hp and the other a stick of ciggies...
3. Be health concious...exercise more...burn those flabs...stop smoking damn it!!
4. Less smsing....i kinda noticed most of us tend to talking using sister have her hp in front of her for any incoming sms..lets just talk like normal people...COMMUNICATEEEE
5. Civic minded when you're staying in a apartment...dun just let ur kids running around painting graffiti around the least the Western ppl can draw really cool stuff...this bunch of kids kept on writing new words they recently found in some lame dictionary and just wanna show of their superior vocabs...gimme a break
6. Public toilet is one thing..but lifts..c'mon..its not a dumpsite....grow up!!
7. Lesser taxes...more efficient on govt spending....wifey..u know what i'm talking about..i'm the freakin taxpayer here..ok!
8. Donate more..we're Malaysian never lack of this spirit...
9. Pay ur not encourgae graft...except for some desperate cases..hehehe
10. Don't let me start talking about the traffic these days....

goin to kk alone without my munchkin is indeed very boring. touch down at kk airport around 12noon and mr T is already there waiting. he is goin to be my driver for the whole 3 days. nice guy and suddenly i can actually communicate using the sabahan dialect. check in at the hotel....rehat sekejap...and 1 clock plus plus dah gerak gi fillipino market. around 10 - 15 minutes walk to reach there. dunno why but im not that excited upon entering the market. maybe becoz of the smell. sapa yg brooch freak musti gile masuk tpt ni. i used to be a brooch freak..u know buying brooches that matches the color of ur tudung or baju....those were days. but then, goin to this market and looking at the colourful cheap brooch without even buying it is something not right. so i just shop just for the sake of shopping not becoz i need it. halfway shopping i realise i'm only left wif 50 bucks...aiyark...tak cukup....ask around where is the nearest atm...hmm...have to cross 2 mainroads to get to the nearest bank....belasahhh!!! rasa mcm lonely planet la plak kan. on my way back frm the bank terjumpa this one restoren yg agak happening so decided to have my late lunch there. the waitress suggested nasi goreng lalap. cheeky's comment: they call it nasi goreng lalap but it is actually the normal nasi goreng ayam wif extra kuah kacang. lepas lunch dah dapat energy sambung cut 8 pairs of brooch for myself...1 pair each for ummi and MIL...2 pairs of pearl's bracelets and 3 pairs of austria swarovski crsytal bracelets. 5pm went straight back to the hotel...exhausted. that nite decided just to stay in the room and had one pack of limau barli i bought on my back frm the market. got a call frm the organizer checking out on me...told him my abt my splendid afternoon and he was like...kamu berani yaa....nanti kena jual bah baru kau tau!!! hello....i'm tak kena jual la kannn. the following day is the meeting day and a visit to the site at kol*pis a.k.a kueh lopes. pix on the right shows the progress of the site...nothing actually...just tiang and tiangs. this pencawang is expected to be completed in june...which is as commented by almost everybody IMPOSSIBLE!!! arrive at the hotel near to 5...was thinking of goin to the market again tapi mcm tak larat. that nite we had our dinner at this one seafood rest...the only thing nice is their soft crab. the rest so-so but their dessert is awful. imagine having a melted version of peanut butter to be eaten like a bubur kacang...yek yekkk!! boleh tgk muka semua terbeliak biji mata at their first taste of this "bubur peanut butter". final day...balik!!! on my way to the airport, ask Mr T to drop me at the market coz i want to borong limau barli...I LIKE LIMAU BARLI. while waiting for my flight, caught a glimpse of datuq..shoot...why is he out frm that room so soon. quickly i have to hide the denim jacket im wearing...tak sesweiii. nak masuk plane tu he was explaining abt this rainfall thingy that causes the big flood in perlis n of course tak paham...tapi layannnnn....zzzzz....pingsan!!!!!

Brian Scudamore of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?

From Scott Allen, Your Guide to Entrepreneurs.

One man's trash, and then another, and then another, and then another...
Start up capital - USD700
Established - 1989
Education - Uni drop out
2004 turnover - >USD30 million
Brian Scudamore started his company 1-800-GOT-JUNK? in 1989 straight out of high school with $700 and a beat-up old pick-up truck. Today they have 95 franchise partners across North America with a true national presence, they are in 47 of North America's top 50 cities.
Scudamore was a risk-taker, but firm in his vision. "With a vision of creating the 'FedEx' of junk removal," says Scudamore, "I dropped out of University with just one year left to become a fulltime JUNKMAN!

Yes, my father, a liver transplant surgeon, was not impressed to say the least." He chuckles,
"He is on my side now."Many entrepreneurs minimize their risks by outsourcing to contractors. Scudamore chose a different route."I hired my first employee a week after I started. I knew I needed the help. His name was David Sniderman , a good friend of mine. I really didn’t know yet how to hire so I just asked a buddy." It may have started as a matter of simply not knowing what else to do, but it became a philosophical issue for him. "On a bigger level, I always believed in hiring people vs. contract or consultants. I felt that if I wasn’t willing to make the investment then I was questioning my own faith in the business."On the other hand, he's a big believer in letting other people share some of the risk.

His choice of franchising as a business model allowed him rapid growth without having to turn to outside investors or other funding sources."It’s the ultimate leverage model. People pay you a fee up-front to help them grow. Rather than lose control my vision by going public, I chose franchising. It's the ultimate growth model."Their recipe for success has been simple.
Take a fragmented business, add clean shiny trucks that act as mobile billboards, uniformed drivers, on-time service and up-front rates, and then mix in with a culture that is young, fun and completely focused on solid, healthy growth. He has managed to retain 100% ownership and bootstrapped the business solely out of cash flow, something that is very rare these days.

Although this is a simple business, they couldn't possibly have grown this quickly without technology. Taking a low tech business and putting a high tech spin on it allowed them to rapidly distinguish themselves from their competition. All calls come into a central 1-800-GOT-JUNK? call center where they do all the booking and dispatch for their franchise partners. Franchise partners then assess all of their real time reports, schedules, customer info, etc., off of JUNKNET, their corporate intranet. This allows franchise partners to get into business quickly, and to focus solely on growth, working on the business vs. working in the business.1-800-GOT-JUNK? does about $32 Million in 2004, not a bad return on a $700.00 investment! Brian's BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) is $100 million and 250 franchise partners by Dec 31st, 2006. He says confidently, "We will get there."

........ template...this is the best that i can get. check out cheeky's deco and bites....all green!!!! im supposed to update on my raya open hse, stupid exams and my shopping spree in SSF, IKEA and MV in 3 straight working days...hahahahha....giler!!!! but it is end of the busy wif work...closing account...tons and tons of project payment etc etc. no times for updates. even mr evil pun dah lama tal updates....too busy to get rich!!!

::see drimba down there....hmmm...mcm kotak mancis la plak kan...hopefully bila dah 100% completed it will turn out nice. afflatus was asking mr evil why is the name drimba...let me answer that just to make me feel better....the apt is supposed to be a resort style apartment...with a track...and all green!!!so i guess thats why they name it drimba. u shud see the architect's drawing....thats the reason why we jatuh chenta tergolek dog wif drimba. another reason is the nearby housing...u got bayu damansara on ur left....and s'ngor polo club on ur rite...wif all the semi-ds and bungalows......nak beli tak mampu jadi neighbour pun okk la!!

hari ni nyer paper mmg konfirm, 1144 - aras 1 aras 1 die la die laaaaaaaaaaa

lagu utk hari ni:

Kini aku....Pasrah
Dengan segalanya
Kepedihan itu masih terasa

Dec 5, 2005


DRimba in the making.


as i was writing down my ic number and no giliran dis morning, i notice a similarities. both item ends wif '44' which can either mean 'aras 4 aras 4' or 'die la die la'

but the last four digits for my angkat giliran is '1144' which can only mean 'aras 1 aras 1 die la die la'. ARGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH

lesson learn:
- soklan yang sgt senang akan jadi sangat susah bila kita tak baca
- jgn percaya kpd sms angin!!!

Lagu untuk hari ini:
Ku berserah
Kepadamu Maha Esa
Mungkin takdir
Telah menentukan segalanya
Ku berserah
Kepada apa yang telah berlaku pada diriku ini
Hanya diKau
Dapat merubah segalanya
Pada diKau saja
Ku mengharap

so balik umah nanti terus la tong tang tong tang kat dapor yer. mr evil has done his part last night by knocking at every door inviting them tonite. i malu laa nak knock knock....muakakaka


Currently..i'm in no mood to update my blog...probably afflatus was right..i only contribute 1% in this blog..wifey have dilligently updating this blog like almost every week..with the template change and the cook blog too...
Probably, i'm just not that excited anymore in blogging..that's probably it...I'm easily bored with the things i do if its the same monotonous things..i just could not maintain the same enthusiasm when i'm doing it for the 1st time..i just couldn't care i when i got my 1st car...think i vacuumed it on my own for the 1st month owning it...later it just kept accumulating dust for 4 yrs...then there was my pda and ps2...i used it for couple of month and later on i just sold it on ebay..ehh wait..i still got my pda collecting dust too..crap...then my fascination with rare movies..i've downloaded tons of it and have not watched it yet..and probably the classic case was my previous co. i was working was a pretty cool quota..good my own team who report to me..on my way to be an assistant manager..but i just practically lost interest..felt there's nothing i can get out of more excitement in more adrenaline rush..same ol thing day in day out....
I just hope i would be in the same co. i'm in by 2006...sigh..
Think i need a new hobby..hehehe..collecting stamps probably..or be a pen pal to somebody at the other side of the hemisphere..snail mail only..that would be cool..wonder those thing still exist anymore..
Guess the only thing i never bored with is wife and i usually change restaurant or menu which makes it a mystery and intriguing..
A good friend of mine advised me, don't change your surrounding to make it interesting..but change the way you look at things...if one look deep'll see things in a different perspective....yeah be more observant i guess..wish i can do that..just stop for a while..take a deep breath and look around you..don't react..just enjoy your view. Maybe we are so programmed to chase things...act on things and run somewhere to get things done and forgot to enjoy what you have in front of you...err think i'm rambling right now..making lots of nonsense and BS.. yeah..way past my bedtime..

Nov 22, 2005


i'm still waiting and waiting.....and waiting.....


sometimes people just dont understand......


sometimes i myself dont understand either.....

Raya Review

I wanna make a quick and short raya review..

- Raya Aidilfitri was ok -

Seems most raya blog entries are quite interesting and i'm saving my energy to type the whole raya event from start to finish..Just refer other blogs for those review..But, I'd like to mention the new things happened that have never happened before in my life :

This is my 1st raya away from my own hometown..i've been dying to do this all my life..wanna try out new scenery..It was my main and only reason to apply for UK studies..guess that didn't worked out well..So the next best thing was..Alor Setar!!..hahaha..finally one of my dark fantasies were realized. My other fantasies are quite far fetched that involves leather and whip..Unless Oprah would pick me for one of those Dream Come True episodes...Ok, coming back to this god forsaken was ok..i didn't do much there though..stayed for a week but did not do anything to help out..wat a exemplary son in law I've become...I don't have to anyam ketupat..dun have to cook the ketupat and jaga api..em using woodwork..quite old school but it's so need to kacau dodol with my bros..Gosh..I've became a couch potato in my cool is that..but i kinda miss the pelita, the fireworks and my favourite..home made carbide cannon in my own place...I think the rest are quite the same..

Another interesting event I had was the 1st day of work...I made an illegal u turn and was stopped by 2 policeman. Since it was so obvious that I made it deliberately...though i kept telling them it was not my fault..some of the lame excuse was...

- tak nampak sign dia pun
- saya bukan org kat sini nih
- sebenarnya saya nak cepat
- and the lamest of all..tak sengaja la datuk...

After much negotiation..or i may say..some begging...i realised this is Ops Sik*p summons goes up to Rm 300 with no discount..crap...I'm broke already for all the ang pow I I took a deep breath and offered the dude.." Bang..takleh setel kat sini je ke?" and he said, " Nak setel camne?" So, I slowly pulled out my wallet and told him" Bang, ada 50 jek nih..ok ke?"...and the rest was history...there ya go peeps..I've lowered my standard to some people in this world and not proud of it.

p/s: fenot, its was your taught me to do this..I succumbed to the temptation

Talking about lame thingy..i've listed lame questions asked during raya

1. Keje kat mana?
2. Tinggal kat mana?
3. Cuti brape lama?
4. Jam tak jalan?
5. Bila nak bertiga plak?
6. Dah sampai mana?... I still have no idea to answer this question..

- using my experience, i've mastered to answer all of the of the lame question with pin point accuracy..with 0% deviation.

- Selamat Beraya, jgn lupa puasa 6

best tak besttt.....

:: best tak best 21hb - 24hb ni kena pi kursus kat melaka pulak....something like the previous one kat genting cuma different topic. seeloknya kena pegi tapi tak pegi pun tak per....tapi kalau pegi lagi bagus....tapi kalau boleh tak mau nak pegi ker tak mau pi ni??!!! hahahaha...surat dah bagi kat bos tadi....

bos kata: ni kursus dr J*A ni kena pegi ni
hati kata: alerrr...tak nak pegiii

anyway, bos kena discuss ngan boss besor dulu sbb bos plak nak cuti time tarikh kursus tuh. ader chance tak leh gi ni.....mauakakakakak *gelakevil*. apa2 pun i hate courses esp those held outside KL....and i dunno why courses "PT* jalanpeta" by J*A yg mmg kena hadir asyik dapat outside KL jer. org lain senang plak dapat buat kat I*bukan nama sebenar!!

p/s: best tak best 20hb tuh ader makan2 at my hse....kalau kena postpone lagi....masak la makcik!!! *winkkatfaramayerkandiffah

nothing much....

:: perlu ker cerita pasal raya....tak payah la kan...kang panjang berjela plak. but anyway, our camera charger went kaput on the eve of Hari Raya so no Hari Raya pixs frm us. and this year tak dapat pekena laksa siam at my cousin's house. laksa siam is a must have meal at our cousin's house every year on the 2nd day of hari raya. dis yr tak sempat nak pegi sbb ppl keep on coming to our hse after friday's prayer. we only managed to leave the house around 4pm but of course me and mr evil terus balik kl sbb dah lewat while the rest pi melantak!!!!

:: semenjak dua menjak ni rasa malas nak update the evil genius....asyik dok memain ngan templates and dok excited ngan cheeky bites jerk. mlm ni nak gi OU nak beli subway sandwich...yeay!!!!!! semata2 babe!!! not just me...even mr evil pun dah lama teringin nak makan sandwich itu.

:: dis week and next weekend invitation for lunch and dinner dah penuh. in fact next weekend i'm gonna do a makan2 session for my frens frm school. i wont call it an open hse coz it is a closed session. tak pandai la nak buat open hse...tak pandai bajet amt of food one thing....tak pandai masak banyak2 is another thing. after payday maybe another 2 closed session will be held at our home....hihihihi

Same ol, same ol

Had a very interesting day today...Finally I have moved out from Cyberjaya to TTDI. All this while, i've studied in cyber and worked my arse off in cyber too..minus my stint in Shah Alam for 2 month and Bukit Bintang or 10 month...but that's gonna be another blog entry on its own..very long story..Though i'm suppposed to be based in cyber..but i'll be usually seen in TTDI office since all of my team members are located there...It's quite tiring to running around from 2 offices plus partners and customers sites..sigh..
My new workstation is quite big with a freakin old rusting building and an under construction condos..Well, at least i got a view.. Yes dear...i know u got ur friggin own room..whooopie..i hated rooms anyway...too quite. You tend to doze off and day dream in a big old boring room..since mine is in a secluded corner..I'd be able to chat more without getting caught...finally...
Today, i made a very difficult call to a business was tough..i had postponed it for almost 3 month with hope nobody had noticed something is wrong with the invoices..but in the end..its gonna bite you back..crap..i picked up the phone..dialled his number..just after drafting an email to notify the screw up..hehehe..too scared to talk to the i thought i can hide behind an email address..Anyway..told him the situation..I said sorry though it was not my fault..somebody has to take the blame damn it..and he said ok..Shit....that was easy!! Probably Ramadhan month...but my point was..Why did i tried to tai chi my way out all this while. I would be able to have a piece of mind 3 month ago. That's 3 month that i will not get back. So, no more procastination to resolve problem..hopefully..But i really hate fire fighting with internal department..they can be very very annoying..much more annoying than my most difficult customer..why lah? Can't we just get along..make love not war.
Called up Hakim, an old friend during my A-Level days..he already setup a company secretary firm. Guess most of my friend already have their own business...and where i am right now..slogging my butt in day out..still stuck in the rat race...Ok no more whining about work..its pretty pathetic in a corny way.
Buka puasa in Regent Hotel...this would be the last buka puasa in a hotel for this yr...Finally...already sicked and bored with hotel food. I'd rather buy 'em in pasar ramadhan and in my own place..Now i know what my economic lecturer meant about the Law of Diminishing Return...refer to John Sloman book on Macro Economics...hahaha..the 3 inch book good as a sleeping pill..very effective one.. till another lesson on life..

went back home during lunch break to watch my fav oprah show (erkkk....boleh gitu??) tgh syiok2 baring atas sofa tgk tv....bunyi alarm dari lift...i thot mesti lift sangkut ni ader org picit buat tak tau layan tv balik....then fire alarm plak bunyik....erk..apa hal lak ni...bukak alarm betol2 depan pintu umah...BINGIT!!! sambung balik tgk alarm still bunyi sekali ngan alarm dr lift. arghhh...tak leh jadi ni (dgn perasaan yg agak cuak menggigil2)....grab my tudung....amik brooch letak dlm wallet....kuor umah try menuju ke lift (konon nak turun lift...masa tsunami quake selamber jer turun lift)...both lift ader sign fire...WHAT??!!!!! fire betol ker ni...apsal semua org relax nii!!!! apa lagi cabut ler ikut tangga dari tingkat 11 sampai G...but the thing is...why am i the only one....where's everybody??? i saw one kid tgh terjenguk2 kat koridor umah dia...and another makcik dok bersidai tgk something...duh?? sampai bawah saw two boys looking at the operating room...

Any given day

I've skewed my intial plan from lesser books and more Quran during Ramadhan. Just finished the final installment of Shopaholic books..The Sister seems like Sophie Kinsella need to move away from the character and storyline as it is quite predictable after the 3rd book. I'm quite annoyed with the character as she's doesn't really emphasize on the evolving character..same ol's just irritating..Last week, while waiting for my biz partner to arrive in KLCC, i went up to Kinokuniya just to browse around some books and I stumbled upon a review of evidence presented in Da vinci Code...hehehe...i grabbed the book and went straight to the cashier and smiling my way back as if I'm the only person in the world who knew this theory..
Had the buka puasa in was ok..hoping i can get oyster but instead took alot of shushi's..It seems like all major buffet provider are hiking up their prices due to fuel price..bunch of BS..To make things was Terawikh time..and 3 wannabe Idol ladies went up to the stage with their tight fitting clothes sings like it's in the pub..i was here i am not going for the Terawikh...i hate break fast outside..had enough of buffets ,hotels food last, loud music and awful singing..guess they were too old to join AF or Idols
The other day, Mercy replied back with the form for volunteers job. Gosh, i'm having second thoughts to join the activities as 'm too tied up with my own work. They even invited me to come down to KLCC this week for fund raising which I declined some lame excuse..too many commitments this year..gonna join u guys next yr..hahahah..what a bull..It's been ages for me to do charity work. It was a piece of cake while i was in uni previously..but now..seems like I do not want to leave my comfort zone. Darn it man..I'll kick myself!! Wifey..already warned me..No overseas humanitarian effort..Only domestic ones..aiseyman. Thought I can hitch a free ride to Iran or Sudan and help people. Somebody told me last week, one of the volunteers was a Malaysian architect with zero knowledge on medicine, was sent to Aceh during the tsunami crisis..Now, he's spearheading the team to re-build Aceh. Now that's a contribution to humanity.. But, in the application form, there boxes to tick..Areas of not a doctor..not a skilled carpenter...not a emergency rescuer..crap!! I dun have basic skills for survival..All those Scout or cadet co-coriculum ( did i spell it rite) was useless...I was trained to survive in the corporate jungle..but not for this..Even my current skills in sales also useless...It's not like i'm gonna negotiate to implement enterprise resource mgt for the victims...But they do have boxes for PR, fundraising and IT..quite interesting..maybe i'll tick those..
Pakistan was ravaged by 7.6 richter scale...really shocked as if it was yesterday the tragefy in Turkey and another one...Is it a sign? Only God knows...Al-Fatihah to all victims perished in the catastrophe.

The good, the bad and the fugly

The Good
- Ramadhan has arrived, so I'm determined to cleanse myself and more prayers..Must not miss Terawih this time around coz the surau is in my block..No more excuses!! Hope to read the Quran more and lesser novels..So much good things to do in Ramadhan...heck..i'm getting credited even in my sleep...what a no brainer..Thank you God!!
- Fasting month will help me slim down a bit...i hope so...wishful thinking i suppose..but i'm determined to go for it..
- After reading Steve Jobs speech , i realise i dun want to settle for second...i need to search the one thing i'll be passionate while i was on my way to my car today..i bump into the blue honda accord dude again...he'll be doing the same old chores every morning...washing his car..eventhough he's not working..retired worries..but i dun want to end up like him..Waiting the day Death come knocking on the your life...So i've sent a mail to an NGO for volunteer jobs...

The Bad
- 3rd Quarter just closed and entering 4th I've got like 3 days of stress-free holiday.
- We lost the WaterGames event last weekend..not a single freakin prize...we were eating dust or might i say..lake water..even the MDC girls team whoop our was so humiliating...and to top it all..we didn't have a t-shirt at the rest of the competitor
- We got 2nd place in the dragonboat event...only 2 teams competing in the 2nd heat..hehehe..sort of our consolation prize
- Need to watch out my spending this month as Raya is coming...too many nephews and nieces after the merger of 2 families...In uni, i thought merger and acquisition would lead to reduction of expenditure with lay-offs and increased productivity...but I can't fire my anak buah..and i don't see any diffrence in efficiency..Probably..these are the teething problem when major companies merged...

the Fugly
- Most of the deal last quarter was not reflected in my ledger..Drouble crap!!...I want my commission damn it...Ooopss..bulan posa...have
- ceteris paribus....

:: hr ni extra ngantuk + penat coz pagi tadi bertungkus lumus buat keje.

:: Perbezaan WP1 and WP3

WP1 - lift kat umah berenti at almost every floor utk pick up org
WP3 - most of the time zaaasssss dr tingkat 11 terus ker G

WP1 - kena keluar dr umah at least half an hr before swipe in

WP3 - boleh keluar dr umah 15-20 mins before swipe in

WP1 - jammed giler baban - pergi dan balik
WP3 - clear giler baban - pergi jer, balik kekadang

WP1 - esp for fasting month, ramai yg nak balik on the dot 4.30
WP3 - esp for fasting month, hanya org2 spt NUR IZYANI ZAKARIA jer nak balik 5.30ptg (lps tu ngadu kena bukak pose dlm keter plak)...which is the minority.

:: smalam after work gi param kat bangi...byk lagi yg tak bukak...sajer jer gi jejauh sbb supirnya adaaa. salu org 1st day pose nak makan besor, but not for us. for myself roti john jer pehtu powww munchkin nyer peha ayam bbq. tak sedap sgt roti john but still i like it. nanti nak beli yg kat p2 sedap giler2 tp tak tau la tahun ni dia jual ker dak. munchkin plak beli roti warisan (roti inti daging balut ngan kulit popiah n goreng), kebab and bbq chicken wing. beli kuih putu bambu and tembikai setengah biji. balik umah tinggal buat air longan jer. susahhhnyerr nak buat air longan ni. utk ramadhan this yr, munchkin kata tak yah masak utk buka sbb dia tak nak makan nasi...ngeh ngeh ngeh....senang keje makcik (tapi increment utk COHA masih perlu dipertimbangkan yachs). just masak malam utk sahur jer.....lalalalalala. mlm ni ingat nak buat ayam goreng kunyit utk sahur ker nak buat ikan bilis tumis belacan and cili api. hmmmmmmmm. anyway, cheeky bites updated. kalau ader gambor yg blur2 sket tuh mintak mahap yer sbb semua amik guna tepon jer. malas nak pakai kamera...kena berwayar2 plak bila nak transfer.

Tuesday, 041005

:: 1st of all, i wanna welcome iffah to this blogging world. dah duduk jauh2 tuh rerajin la update blog, at least member2 kat sini terasa dekat.

:: on travelling, we havent decide where to go. nak try tgk korea or hong kong. kalau tak leh decide gak mmg karambunai ler. tp if possible mmg nak sangat gi bali (masih mode keciwa). nak SHOPPING!!!!! chech this out -->
my supposed to be shopping list. of course not all la kan...ader la a few small small items tu.

:: on bajet 2006...hmmm

~ bonus - expected. infact i was preparing for the worst which is 1/2 mth or tak dpt langsung. ok la tuh drpd takder kan
~ increment for I*KA - yg ni mmg quite shocking. tak expect langsung. takder rumours pun pasal increment ni...alhamdullillah
~ COCA COLA - TAK DAPAT!!! expected pun. dah dgr rumours psl those yg dok kuarters tak dpt. kalau ikutkan mmg la tak puas hati kan...mcm mana derang ni define COCA COLA? true cost of living termasuk house rental tp just cut jer la portion house rental tuh and increasekan la house allowance. takper lah...bukan rezeki. tanyer lid...masa time dia dulu semua org dolu2 COCA COLA 30 hinggit jer....govt servant pun sket jer kot.

ader yg cakap baik keluar jer dr kuarters tuh and menyewa..banyak rugi oooo. hmm...let me see...
hse allowance - 210
coca cola - 150
allowance pindah putrajaya - 150 (dibayar bila our office move to putrajaya until mac 2006 max, dpt la merasa beberapa bulan b4 dpt kuarters)
so kat sini dah rugi 510 (until Mac 2006)!!!! banyak gak kan. tp takper lah...i like it here. selesa. dekat. etc etc.

p/s: erk...govt servant dpt COLA...not-so-desperate hsewife takde increment COHA ker? ihihih...just joking dear!!!

:: smalam pilih WP baru. so start bulan pose esok masuk keje 7.30 - 4.30. mmg harus jgn tidor lepas sahur yerr!!! lps raya back to normal working hr kot...but i think i wanna change to wp2. tetiba rasa mcm lama sgt plak nak tunggu 5.30 tuh.

:: anyway, ni lah dia snow white zett...PUTERI DINI DAHLEA. comelkan....

Oct 3, 2005

bali oh bali

:: musnah harapan hancur lebur berkecai berderai. there goes my bali shopping spree. both of us already bought a package to bali end of this november. as per yesterday, we plan to just proceed with the package sbb rasa mcm ok kot. tp lepas check ngan our travel agency, it seems like everybody is cancelling their trip. my travel agent tu pun tak boleh nak bagi recomendation to proceed or not. it is for us to decide. dia cuma cakap ramai yg cancel. lepas pikir2 balik...ok lah cancel la jugak lgpun i'm sure bila gi sana nanti utk holiday sure ader rasa takut kan. bukan holiday namanyer tuh kalau dah takut2. nasib baik travel agency bagi air ticket diapun tak sure boleh bagi 100% refund ker tak sbb tiket dah beli. we are not goin to take the refund tp just nak tukor destinations. punyer lah susah nak pikir destination kat overseas mana yg best sbb dlm kapla otak ader Bali jer so end up we might just be goin to nexus karambunai sabah. ok lah tuh (dalam nada yg masih keciwa).

:: check ngan asadi, she went bali last august. the hotel that we book sama tpt ngan dia. and dia cakap tpt bombing tuh mmg just around the corner.....mmg tpt dia jalan2 makan angin...jimbaran tu plak mmg tpt derang akan bawak kiter makan seafood. arghhhhhhhhhh...kukeciwaaaaa.

:: nak blog pasal bajet pun malas...takde mood hari ni...sob sob sob

3 short stories

I came across this blog last week and one of the entries talk about living your life...

Text of the Commencement address by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, delivered at Stanford University on June 12, 2005.

I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories.The first story is about connecting the dots.

I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out?

It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife. Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: "We have an unexpected baby boy; do you want him?" They said: "Of course." My biological mother later found out that my mother had never graduated from college and that my father had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented a few months later when my parents promised that I would someday go to college.

And 17 years later I did go to college. But I naively chose a college that was almost as expensive as Stanford, and all of my working-class parents' savings were being spent on my college tuition. After six months, I couldn't see the value in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out. And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The minute I dropped out I could stop taking the required classes that didn't interest me, and begin dropping in on the ones that looked interesting.

It wasn't all romantic. I didn't have a dorm room, so I slept on the floor in friends' rooms, I returned coke bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be priceless later on.

Let me give you one example:
Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best calligraphy instruction in the country. Throughout the campus every poster, every label on every drawer, was beautifully hand calligraphed. Because I had dropped out and didn't have to take the normal classes, I decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do this. I learned about serif and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can't capture, and I found it fascinating.

None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life. But ten years later, when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just copied the Mac, its likely that no personal computer would have them. If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards ten years later.

Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

My second story is about love and loss.I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life. Woz and I started Apple in my parents garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4000 employees. We had just released our finest creation — the Macintosh — a year earlier, and I had just turned 30. And then I got fired. How can you get fired from a company you started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me, and for the first year or so things went well. But then our visions of the future began to diverge and eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our Board of Directors sided with him. So at 30 I was out. And very publicly out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating.

I really didn't know what to do for a few months. I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down - that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure, and I even thought about running away from the valley. But something slowly began to dawn on me — I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over.

I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.

During the next five years, I started a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife. Pixar went on to create the worlds first computer animated feature film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful animation studio in the world. In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought NeXT, I retuned to Apple, and the technology we developed at NeXT is at the heart of Apple's current renaissance. And Laurene and I have a wonderful family together.

I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn't been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.

My third story is about death.
When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: "If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right." It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning, and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn't even know what a pancreas was. The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor's code for prepare to die. It means to try to tell your kids everything you thought you'd have the next 10 years to tell them in just a few months. It means to make sure everything is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes.

I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy, where they stuck an endoscope down my throat, through my stomach and into my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a few cells from the tumor. I was sedated, but my wife, who was there, told me that when they viewed the cells under a microscope the doctors started crying because it turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had the surgery and I'm fine now.

This was the closest I've been to facing death, and I hope its the closest I get for a few more decades. Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept:

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late 1960's, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and polaroid cameras. It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.

Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish."

It was their farewell message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

-Hope all of us would be inspired by this speech one way or another-

I have the tendencies to update this blog once in a fortnight..Well at least, the madam are able to keep this blog running..

On current affairs
- Rita did not reach level 5 as expected. A big relief to the yanks out there..especially dubya..Who might he blame it this time..Mother earth? We're not suckers..

On technology
- I bought a wireless router yesterday in OU. It wasn't the cheapest in town but no time to drive down to Low Yat and bargain like crazy. It's just 20 bucks difference and I got a free lousy speaker costing around 20 bucks..but the towkey slapped a RM 68 price tag on the speakers..and mentioned its good bargain...hah..who's he kidding with..I'm a geek. Anyway, went back and hooked up the router to the adsl modem..put on the cd and let it rip..and the annoying trying and error begun..Macho guys like me dun read manual..just wing it..After tinkering several hours with the gadget i gave up..its not the router problem..something wrong with my wireless setting..No wonder i can't surf in starbucks yesterday...Then i remembered, i went to my frens office last friday and he did some tinkering around my thinkpad to log into his network. Now, everything was so screwed up...This morning, i called up helpdesk..and holler for help...the easiest way to resolve technical issues..we have people to do it for you..I did not mention to the tech lady wat i did last friday with the settings..standard tak nak ngaku wasn't me kind of remarks...She did some miracle and it works...Anyway, one problem solved...went back to day..and try to run the router installation again...It's not working!!..WTF!!..I'm gonna sue the towkay in OU, he sold me faulty router..or incompatible router..or wateva wrong with long as its not my fault..hehehe...Finally, after several try and error method..i realize i keyed in the wrong streamyx user id...gosh..wat an idiot...its only
azi*ul@streamyx...without the dotcom. TM should standardize the formatting..not my fault....again..blame it on others..esp GLCs. Now, i'm blogging on my bed with p2p running concurrently and reading the news..wooohoooo...- Not sure whether SmartTag falls under this category..or maybe i'm a bit late to follow the trend...but another new toy is the TnG Tag..pretty kewl used to the coins...jakun sey

On health
- Due to Yani's remark on my lovehandle...I've enrolled myself for the MSC Watergames 2005.. So i had to sacrificed my weekends to sweat it out at the Putrajaya Lake.. I'm taking the 2 sculls, 4 sculls and dragonboat bout that!!Felt like studying in Harvard and joined the rowing team..Surely, i can manage to lower down by several kilos...hehehe..unless my beloved wife cooks sabotage my good looks again...- Today, I went to usj for a go-kart games with our business partner..Now, i realized, i drove like a makcik...even the girls drove faster than me..crap..I think something wrong with the kart...Not enough air maybe..or no downward force..or lack of balancing..or anything but me..It was fun...manage to do spin on the tarmac..oversteering and over excited i guess.

On work-
Work sucks, wat else to need to flame on others..never ending story

On sport- Selangor Rules!!! I never bothered watching the malaysian football..except last week while i was back at home..watching the FA finals...Its been a while watching football with my dad and mum..the excitement..the company..the coffee..the argument betw my parents on small stuff..Those wonder really miss those good ol'days..Anyway..Red Giant won again..for wateva cup..i basically just jumped into the bandwagon and joined the excitement..dialled Tigana's hp number and tried to rub it in with him..he'd do the same if Perak won wat the your face dude!!
