This is the biggest PC Fair i went so far. They have like, almost everything. u name it!

Booth was plenty. There were too many people swarming the exhibition, even on the first day.


For this year, the organizer chose KL Convention Centre for the closing Pikm PC Fair.

What a right choice. the place was spacious.


I bought myself a 32gb Sandisc pendrive.. yeah baby!

"Please take note that ORANGE and YELLOW are prohibited colours, so please make sure get rid of that colours from your attire and equipment. Any doubts pls contact The UJ at 016 332 3376 / 017 285 0980. TQ"


That is one rule that's going to be a pain in the a$$ for me, specifically the banning of YELLOW color. I own many yellow attires/equipments. This means i have to change ALMOST ALL of my those.

The majors are my markers, i have a yellow tiger stripes etek2 and black/yellow luxe, then yellow mask, angel headband, joy division jerseys (and i have 2 of these), joy pants, velocity sandana shell, yellow tank cover and even my teams jersey have a yellow APSA logo on our arm!

Whilst the latter are easier to get rid of, what about the markers? It costs me thousands and I'm sure it'll become useless, and the value will decrease as soon as these rules been implemented in the new season!

In my opinion, its better for the organizer to change the color of pellets rather than the players changing their equipments. But that's just me...

The World Cup Asia has just closed it curtain. I might say this year’s tournament is much better compared to last year although there is more room for improvement to look into.

Speaking of room of improvement. I think they should look into the field condition. Its muddy all over the snake and starting area.

Even during the final, the crowds have an unpleasant smell of the mud. Although it was drizzling but the crowd turnout is better than last year.

On the other hand, the booth and expo was as happening as always. There were plenty of stuff to look into and there’s Chris Lasoya for god sake!

My biggest regret was that I should have bought the fuzzy stick and pod bag from the dye booth on the first day rather than wait for the last minute.
Gods permit we’ll be back again last year. Hopefully WCA 2010 will come with a bigger bang. Till then… YOU’RE OUT!

See you guys again next year. Kalau kami join lagi la.

Scania had finally opened their own workshop here in KK. Situated in KKIP, it’s a bit far from their previous office at Inanam.


The infrastructure was good and spacious. It’s about time that they got their own property since they’ve been in Sabah for almost 10 years

Bateri kereta...


Bateri kereta aku mati hari jumaat lepas. Macam blum pernah lagi aku tukar bateri sepanjang pakai kereta ni.


well just to share. bateri ninja ada dua. satu kiri and kanan. to differentiate them, there are label n120- L or R. n120 is the battery type and L or R represent the side of the battery situated. Left or Right. The positive of the battery should point inside and the negative outside,

IRB Championship



I just watched the IRB Championship women match held in Stadium Likas between India and Malaysian. We were hammered 28-7 by the Indian team.


What a game. I think the Malaysian team need to work on their strength and their fitness. It’s a one sided affair as the Indian players was bigger and stronger. A strong push by the opponent and our players fell helplessly on the ground for the rest of the game. Although our women team did have several import players on the team, that also didn’t help much.

On the near corner, one of the Malaysian players lay down on the ground. MEDIC!!

Well one match for me is enough to sum up the entire Malaysian campaign.

The tournament wrapped the next day in just 2 days.

Ever since I heard about the first paintball field opened in Tawau, I was always eager to check the field out and see how the paintball has been progressing in Tawau.


So after days of goggling and searching where it could possibly be, I managed to get slight information on the whereabouts. The chance came through when I went to Tawau for a site meeting, which eventually being postponed due to bad weather.

But it didn’t turned out as what I expected. There were no one to been seen on the field. Furthermore the paintball field netting was not well maintained. I tried to calm myself saying it’s too early. Yup, I went there at 8am something, hoping to watch someone playing but the gate was still closed.



So I decided to come at a later time.



I did come 15 minutes before 6 and still there’s no one on sight. :(

So I guessed maybe paintball don’t have much follower here.

Yes. It official. I’ve finally earned my MBA. After 2 years of assignments, lectures, exams, presentations, I’m finally over it!


Consequently I’ve managed to go through 3 different convocations, The other was my degree and an IT course conducted by JPSM. The first was presented by a Johor Royal family (I forgot her name), second was our CM, Datuk Musa Aman and the recent by our TYT, Tun Ahmadshah.

So what’s the next step for me, PHD? Nope. Not for the time being. There’s too much going on.

During that convocation there’s this one guy who got his PHD at the age of 25! Wow. He made the news headlines the next morning. Kudos to you man!

Yesterday was the gathering for my ex-SMESH students, specifically for those whom taking PMR at 1995 and SPM at 1998. It was a historic moment, as some of us haven’t met for quite some time.

The night turned out to be great, plenty of food and the activity were fun too. Lots of stories to be shared and laugh into. The only regret, for me, was the attendance was not so great.

All in all, I would like to express my gratitude for the working committee for making this happen. Can’t wait for the next gathering to happen.

Budak Pshyco


Eversince this cybercafe (refer arrow below) opened at the Sembulan shop-office, there is too many teenagers wanders around my neighborhood, especially at midnight.

I have no problem with the cybercafe's owner, as long as they posses a valid operating license.
As for the customers patronizing them, its their choice to be where they wants to be.

But I do have issues when they started to make noise.
Its a nuisance especially if the kids started to gather in groups in the middle of the night. I can hear they shout, jeer and laugh outside the premises. Considering the proximity of the place to mine, it's really annoying.

Sembulan area used to be quiet.

A grueling six months to finish the research.


I have to admit. It was tense. I have to juggle between study, work, paintball and err.. more work


I did my viva presentation yesterday. The comments from the examiners was a pain in the arse, but at least it was better than the proposal presentation.

Well, that history now. In a few days i'll submit the revise research and its over with it. Yippa!


So to sum up the day

I ate 2 of these yummy turtle's eggs...

I‘ve been tagged and I wanted to write this one. But time gets the best of me, so I determined to post this in my blog. Instead of doing 25, I’ve decided to add 3 more in celebration of my 28th birthday. So here’s the list of 28 random things about me;

  1. I can't swim. I’ve tried to learn but it’s hopeless. I’m also afraid of height.
  2. Smoking cigarette doesn’t appeal me as much as others have. So I’ve lost interest in it. Furthermore I feel dizzy whenever I inhale cigarette smoke.
  3. I like to eat spicy food.
  4. I am a discreet person. I never tell other people or talk about other people, only to my close one. Sometimes keeping all these stories can really make me feel like I’m going to burst or something.
  5. I’m a fan of Arsenal football club since the days of Thierry Henry. His contribution to the club is immense. Since he left, Arsenal has yet to win any major trophy.
  6. I used to sit for a long time whenever I travel from KK to Tawau by car, to and fro without any pain. Now I can feel the back pain, heartache, cramp etc. whenever I did the journey.
  7. I used to run 100 meter under 12 second. that was when I was 17 years old.
  8. I represented my school in chess, basketball and handball during my secondary school. I missed the volleyball team to go for basketball selection.
  9. I think that Dr. Mahathir Mohamad was the greatest Prime Minister Malaysia ever had.
  10. I hate public speaking because I pause regularly and always lost my words.
  11. I like being crafty but I'm not very patient to master it well.
  12. I learn Mandarin level 1 before. I wanted to Learn level 2 but due to some class mismanagement, the time never came. Maybe in the future I will reconsider. Thinking of taking Spanish level 1 if given an opportunity.
  13. I was skinny during my teenage days. Somehow no matter how much I ate, I never put on much fat.
  14. My blood is type A. First donated blood at Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
  15. It'll take hours for me to write a single paragraph, let alone a whole composition. That's why i started to blog, to sharpen my writing skill.
  16. I love to visit other places but hate the process of getting there. I don't care for flying or driving to my destination. I get bored driving long distance.
  17. My favorite all time food is soto :)
  18. When I was in primary 1, my ambition is to be a lawyer. I turned out to be an engineer instead.
  19. I was born in Lahad Datu and raised in Kota Kinabalu. But my kampung is at Tawau.
  20. I’ve drove over 15 cars in my lifetime… still counting. I'm thinking of taking GDL license in the near future.
  21. I hate chain email and text but love the funny jokes.
  22. Think Valentine Day is overrated and my favorite day is Sunday.
  23. My favorite subject is math & favorite number is 7.
  24. I think that world peace is a utopian thinking. We can never reach that state.
  25. My dad is my hero and idol. He inspires me in everything.
  26. If I could have any superhero power, it would be super strength.
  27. I’m a firm believer in the motto “BERUSAHALAH”.
  28. I'm grateful with my life!

I went to the movie premiere last night at gsc 1borneo


Being a transformers fan ever since a kid,

1 question,
how did the autobot twins (skids and mudflap) pass through the Jordanian guard, without them noticing there was no driver in them?
