Piss man

On December 15, I drove to Tanjung Aru after having a drink at Damai. At the Tanjung Aru traffic light, I saw a man leaning on one side, at the left side of a car, while waiting for the green light. The car was just beside to the other car in front of me.

There was no one in the car, and it is unusual to stand closely to a car unless something happened. It was 11.35pm and it was quite shadowy, there were a few cars in the other direction waiting for their turn.

I was eager to know what is happening to that man, or the car. I looked around wondering if there was an argument, mishap or something appalling was going on.

A few seconds later, he walked slowly to the drivers seat.

ooo, kereta dia pulak

As the light turned green, he and the car in front of me drove away.

I was just about to step on the gas pedal when I realized something absurd.

 

 

There was a puddle, right where the man left.

This is an excerpt from AP news

 

Rais Yatim praised "the shoe-throwing act by that remarkable reporter who gave President Bush his final farewell last week."

"That shoe-throwing episode, in my view, is truly the best weapon of mass destruction to the leader who coined the phrase 'axis of evil' to denote Iran, Iraq and North Korea," he said in a speech late Friday at a dinner to commemorate the 63rd anniversary of the United Nations.

After leading to an unpopular war with Iraq, US President Bush, in his last day as a premier, finally had ‘taste’ of the weapon he was long referring too. 


WEAPON OF NOT-SO-MASS AND DESTRUCTIBLE!


That is something he’ll remember for the rest of his life.

Alas, the semester is finally over. After a demanding final paper, the tenseness, especially finance paper, is over. Next semester will be my final semester. Hopefully that I’ll finish on the dot.

So currently I’m thinking a topic for my thesis. With any luck in next few days I can think of something that is related to my work.  *sigh*

Asian Cuisine

If you feel like eating at a new place, try different menu etc, why not visit Asian Cuisine restaurant. It is located at Likas Plaza, opposite to Klinik Sihat, just at the corner. 

It serves a variety of dishes, in my opinion, is quite decent. 



I enjoyed having my dinner there. The food and drink is good, plus the price is reasonable. It is better than most of other Malay restaurant, which is usually overcharged and most importantly, TIDAK SEDAP.


Taking account of taste, location and service, I’ll rate this one 4 out of 5.

Kerbau pindik


I was having a drink with my friends when I saw ‘something’ was wondering across the road. I took a glimpse, and quickly snapshot it. It quietly went away after been distracted by my camera flash.

Can you spot what is it? Well, that can only happen when you are in Sabah! *grin*

This is my Advanced Statistic assignment. 


It is by far the thickest assignment I ever submitted. My undergraduate thesis, by comparison, was just a mere 61 pages.

I'M BACK!

I’ve been in hiatus for a few weeks. Too much thing was going on. I just can’t find time to update regularly. Plus my internet connection has been transferred to Tawau. So I was left helpless. Back to STONE AGE. I have to take extra effort to check emails and surf internet elsewhere.

DBKK is giving amnesty period for outstanding parking fees till the end of august. Any parking dues from 2004 to March 2008 are granted a 95% reduction of parking fees access.

Being a *cough* conscientious citizen, I paid my dues. Before a storm comes, usually there’s a mild breeze. I just have the feeling that DBKK, after august, will use its entire might to hunt down the defaulters.

So don’t delay, let’s settle the overdue!

Arsenal new home jersey?


Rumor was flinging in the air ahead of new English Premier League 2008/2009, that Andisba Express, a small transportation operator in Sabah, Malaysia is planning to join a host of Arsenal Football Club sponsors, alongside Emirates Airline and O2. The value of their sponsorship is by far the biggest deal ever undertaken by the company, and the smallest receive by Arsenal, if occur.

Being a passionate gunners fan himself, Andisba Express Managing Director believes sport sponsorship is a vital part of the company's growth strategy and that Arsenal is a perfect partner for Andisba Express.

However he declined any agreement has been made and retract any deal has taken place. The managing director, whom remains to be anonymous said: "This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sponsor such a big club in the world. Nonetheless, we can’t afford it, it’s daydreaming!”

Arsenal spokesperson, however, are unavailable for interview. – Bernuma

I lost my mobile phone at Berjaya Times Square on the 23rd July. With it all the important contact numbers, addresses and notes. So now I’m left scratching my head; making calls, incoming calls etc. oh heck 

Nowadays mobile phone is considered as a basic necessity. Individual is represented in number. We can surely buy a new phone. The contents however, once lost, are irreplaceable.

Just imagine losing your relatives, clients, customers, and business associates number! Huh. If you lose someone else phone number, you wont be able to communicate with that person.


 

For anyone that called/sms/whatever: Sorry

For the person that took my handphone: MAY YOU DIE IN HELL! Muahahaha (ketawa penjahat)

New semester, same problem! That’s my comment for postgraduate registration day. The situation hasn’t change much for this time around. As usual, there was confusion. We were in disarray yet again. The registration was inefficient, so much so one has to wait more than a few minutes for a simple task to be delivered.

Mana satu kaunter mau register ni ahBayar dulu ka? Mana mau ambil result? Were the standard questions raised (Why did I pick the first day?!)

The fact that I went through some difficulty, prior to arriving at registration place added my misery. Firstly I went all the way to administration building at 6th floor, only to be told that PLUMS office is at Psychology faculty. (Ops, my bad! They switch office a few months ago). Then I searched the isolated room, waited several minutes, only to be told that registration must be made in PLUMS One Stop Centre! What the fish!!!

Nevertheless, One Stop Centre was no better. Poor coordination or whatsoever. (I heard someone said, “saya lama suda tunggu”, and not to mention all the monotonous faces, which judging that they too, was boring waiting)

If you ask me, It’s about time PLUMS implemented ONLINE REGISTRATION!! I don’t need to remind you that most MBA students are WORKING, why the hell they held registration on working days!!! We paid PLUMS, so we are considered a client. Can’t they give us a better service, after paying them thousands per semester? It’s our right.

Some undergraduate in some universities did the registration online and why shouldn’t we? If you done the registration online, working students can do the registration at office or at night after work! Rather than disturbing regular working hours. It saves cost and time. Not to mention effectiveness. Furthermore the fact that the registration day was unorganized, some students waited unnecessarily for so long.

I can’t complain much either because this will be my SECOND LAST semester (hopefully). I will be seeing them again in the near future. I predict the same thing will be going again next semester.

P/S – PLUMS, sorry for my rant, you guys did a good job. But why take it easy if you can give us much better? Quoted from Berita Harian advertisement, which may conclude this sarcastic entry to you guys;

 

“Dunia dah berubah, kita semakin maju”

Persoalannya, bila PLUMS mau makin maju ni?

 

Just my two cents

 


 

Funny enough, I found out that I didn’t register the subject I took last semester! I went through all troubles with the classes, assignments and assessments, only to find out that I didn’t register. Damn it! I quickly paid all my semesters fees so next time I can claim I did register. Hopefully PLUMS will pity me accept my late registration. Its just paperwork. Lets just crossed my finger on that. With a bit of luck this will work, if it doesn’t, What thfish!!!

Likas Fracas

This video has long been overdue, but I want to post it anyway.

 

Video synopsis

It was taken after the Sabah match (i forgot the opponent). Sabah was leading before a simple defense error saw their early lead cut. Finally they lost the match, which enraged the crowd (including me!). It didn’t stop there, afterwards the angry mob gathered around the players exit outside the stadium to express their disappointment. They blame on one particular Sabah player, which I wont mention here, that lead to the losses.

This fracas was less intense than the Sabah vs Negri Sembilan 2003 match (read here for info), but it still reflect how Sabahan reacted to such a poor performance from the state players.

The video quality was rather low, due to the fact it was taken from a low-resolution handphone. The dim lighting and noise also affect the outcome. You may need to put your volume to the maximum to listen to what they were saying.


Video Chronology;

  • 0 - 0.33 min -> angry mob shouting and swearing players
  • 0.34 - 0.35 min -> police siren came to the rescue
  • 0.35 - 1.55 min -> angry mob resumed their shouting and swearing

Subsequently, the angry mob started to disperse gradually after the police came. The presence of FRU also help controlled the situation.  

Injury woes


I went to Permai Policlinic to remove a stye, in my right eye, which has been bugging me since February. So I decided to get an operation since it was getting worse. It effect my sight and of course, *cough* looks *cough*. However the doctor suggested to see an eye specialist a.k.a orthopaedist.


So she gave me a letter (refer above picture), which I am still puzzled about the content.

Cut the story short, I went to SMC and the orthopaedist successfully removed the stye. Thank god! after 5 months. Overall, I need to fork out a total of RM450.00. 

  • First day - eye check up, medicine and consultation (from the doctor) – RM230.00
  • Second day - operation and more consultations (from the doctor and nurse)  – RM220.00
  • Third day - take off the eye patch and a lot of consultations (from the doctor, nurse, especially from families and friends) – RM0 J



Thank you Dr. Molly!

On Saturday, still recovering from the operation, I played basketball with my friends at Damai Hall. It was more than a decade (if i'm not mistaken) since i played my last indoor basketball. It was fun. Considering I played with some familiar faces back in high school. There was like 16 of us and a whole court to play with. 


Still, my joy was short-lived when I injured my ankle. I landed awkwardly on my left ankle after doing a lay-up. Nevertheless, I continued to play assuming it was only a small injury. Men usually don’t cry over small things right? The next day I found out this on my ankle.

Maybe I had torn my muscle when I landed. Now, I can’t walk properly. *sigh*. Looking forward for another basketball game though. ;)

Huh? You may wonder as what Leonidas is trying to convey.

He was actually referring to this

Eat mussel life longer, east oyster last longer!!! Couldn’t agree less with you Leonidas!

Hari Peladang, Penternak dan Nelayan 2008 was held at Tamu KPD, Tanjung Lipat, on July from 3rd to 6th. It is an annual event organized by Sabah Agricultural Ministry to boost small and medium agriculture entrepreneurs in Sabah. It is kinda like a big tamu, which it is held annually, instead of monthly/weekly basis. Seafood Festival was one of many main attractions of the event.

Preparing the oyster


So my sisters and I took this opportunity to try out the seafood. So we ordered;

- 3 kg of mussel

- 2 kg of cockle

- 2 boneless ikan bahulu

My precious mussel *nyum nyum*

And the boneless baulu, *drool*

And finally...

*burp* 

 

I ate to my hearts content. Of course, I purposely left the oysters intact for Leonidas and his 300 men to enjoy.

 

Looking forward for this event next year. Till then, keep on easting.

29th June was my birthday. I refused to celebrate my birthday, as it reminds me that I’m getting older by year. I did celebrate birthday, but that was way back before I reached adolescent. Received a few wishes from relatives and close friends, and I would say I’m grateful, for at least some, memorize the day I was born.

 The weather on that morning turns out to be excellent, so I decided to take a break at the Tanjung Aru 3rd Beach with my sisters. It’s been awhile since I last went on having a day out, family members included, in the weekend. The last trip was with my relatives to Kundasang, which was about a year ago. It was quite memorable as we spent a night at a lodge, along with my uncle’s TM co-workers.

We hadn’t much prepared, so we brought whatever necessary. We didn’t get into the water, as other visitors were mostly doing (and their dogs too!). So there we were; the only intention was to relax and enjoy a decent barbeque. I brought along a book to kill off the time. Just so you know, I dozed off several times. *yawn*. I was like. Sleep. Read. Eat. Sleep. Read. Eat. By noon, everyone was so dull, so we decided to head home. 

oh, and a happy 27th birthday to me. *grin*

Thursday, June 19, 2008

On 1st of June 2008, I participated in the very first woodsball event in Sabah, hosted by the Boondocks Barrack. It was my first ever woodsball game and I enjoyed it a lot. I wont write a long summary like the other game I joined, instead post a picture here to share the unforgettable moment. After all, a picture worth’s a thousand words. :)

Oil hike

It’s been 336 hours (a fortnight ago) since the government reduces oil subsidies. There are many reviews in the air from the public on that sudden decision. The effect has certainly hit the lower income group as the hike had caused a domino effect. Household things price has also went up due to rising cost in transportation. Basic foods such as fish, meat, vegetable and other rose gradually although several measures have been taken to slower the impact. The rising price has certainly increased our inflation rate.

Bus express operators wants to increase their fares. yahu!

What struck my mind is the sharp increase, RM0.78 and RM1.00 for petrol and diesel respectively, from the previous price. Malaysia, as an oil exporter should benefit from the rising price of petroleum, hence why should we suffer from the global petroleum price? Secondly is the unexpectedness of the decision. At first Dato’ Shahrir Samad (domestic trade and consumer affairs Minister) said that the government would only reduce the subsidies on August. It would come as a surprise as the government implemented it ahead of scheduled, specifically on 4th of June. I know it is inevitable but these 2 factors really irritated me.

Nevertheless, looking by the global trend, Malaysian government can’t sustain the subsidy on oil in the long run. It must somehow decrease directly, or indirectly. I read a newspaper saying that Malaysia will become a net oil importer country in between 2011 to 2013, as our oil reserve has dried up. We haven’t got much time, so we need to hasten our method on lessening the burden of public.

In my humble opinion, we need to find alternatives, other than petrol or diesel, as a source of energy for vehicle. What about NGV, LPG, palm oil etc? I knew that some taxis in KL are using NGV as it is cheaper compared to petrol. Why hasn’t it introduced extensively to the general public? Too much dependability on petrol alone will cause the price to sour beyond our reach. Desperate times calls for desperate measures.

On the other hand, the most effective way is to upgrade our public transportation system. It is so far the only method that managed reliance on own transport. Many large cities in the worlds e.g., Tokyo, London, New York etc have a good integrated public transportation system. Having a good system means public can save more on their monthly income for other means such as food.

Hence, we need to solve problem by overcoming the causes rather than the effect. There is no point bickering on the rising world oil prices. We need to sit down and think the solution rather than squabble on whose fault it is from. I hope the government can find ways to minimize the people burden. It is no point walking in the corridor of power if you cant helps people that choose you in authority.

(To note: crude oil has reached nearly USD$140.00 per barrel, as for now 18th June 2008 from a mere USD$60.00 per barrel on 11th August 2005).

I got this interesting e-mail from my friend on the usage of mobile phone during times of emergencies.

 

Your mobile phone can actually be a lifesaver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:

 

(1) Emergency

The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile; network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.

 

(2) Have you locked your keys in the car?

Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their mobile phone from your cell phone.

Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

 

(3) Hidden Battery Power

Imagine your mobile battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370# Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your mobile next time.

 

(4) How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone: * # 0 6 #

A 15-digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. When your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.

Chain Letter

Have you ever received a chain letter via email, sms? Nowadays I guess everyone did. My first encounter turnout to be a very nuisance. I received this kind of letter in my house mailbox, saying that I need to send 10 more letters to other within 3 days after I read it. Enable to comply mean something bad will happen to me. So I end up photocopying that 3 pages letter, put it in a nice envelope and deliver the mail to my nearest neighbors early in the morning, just to makes sure no one saw me. Each time i think about it again, i felt so stupid.

Now, whenever I received chain letter, either by mail, email or sms, I totally ignored it after reading the first few sentences. The contents was so obvious. Nevertheless I have to admit some contains good advice and religious messages. But come to think about it, good thing won’t happen just by continuing to circulate the letter. It doesn’t work that way. 

Do you think Bill Gates will give you money just by forwarding the email sent to you by thousand, of maybe millions before you. Do you think he's so generous to donate money who are we to him? Or you will go to heaven just by sending letter? Sending letter won’t send you to heaven, prayers and good deeds do! and 1 more, our email account (or friendster) WILL NOT closed if we don't forward the messages to others, that the dumbest thing i ever heard of! Our mind always wants us to think the benefit we can gain, that’s why we fell easily to the letter contains. It was something like a myth in our society to believe in something superstitious. Thus we obliged to the threat. 

Last week I received an sms that said “don’t answer to this phone number 016-XXXXXXX, or else they will cast a black magic on you” or something like that. Duh! Is this for real?  How can we still succumb to this kind of belief. Later I found out in the newspaper, the police rebuked the claim, saying the sms was just a scam. So much for someone who started all this, you managed to get the people. I quote what Adolf Hitler said;

"The great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one." - Adolf Hitler

I guess its true, judging by this situation, after all.
