Interrupted In Conversation

There are people who are so impatience.  Before you are able to complete what you wanted to say, these people will interrupt over & over again. It gets very irritated especially when you trying to explain or correct them & just keep interrupting again.

When that happens to me, even though I'm I am right, I will just let it go. Exhausted talking to such person.

Dozed Off

I had an appointment yesterday noon at 2.30pm. This guy was here to introduce a software. I was having a bit of difficulty listening to him, as it is like he is bitting his lips while talking - words can't be pronounced correctly. I have to guess the words he was trying to say. 

Something happened half way when he was busy talking - I dozed off !!! He saw it & asked me whether I'm sleepy. Hmm..  that was obvious what, why still asking me that. Somehow, I felt funny of what happened. I did try hard not to dozed off by pinching my leg, scratching my arms, holding from yawning, but that just doesn't work.

Call me David, David Cooperfield

Reached office early as usual. Switched off my car engine. Walked over to the passenger seat to clean the floor mat. Took my notebook out & close the door. Searching for my car key. Couldn't find it in my pocket. Not in shirt pocket too. Not on the steering either. Must have dropped on the floor while I was cleaning the mat. Not on the floor. Not on the driver seat, not on the passenger seat either. Sharks!!! Where the heck is the key!!!

Finally, found it behind my pants pocket!!! Am I David Cooperfield or what ?

Pig Roast Noodle

Had this for dinner. The picture on the menu looks attractive & delicious. The real noodle... well, a bit dissapointment.

Furama Hotel - Standard Room


I reached air port very early, 2 hours before the flight time. Checked in as soon as the counter open.

Still have time to kill, I bought one cup of cappuccino while I go online. Guess how much this nice cup of cappuccino cost ?


There Goes My Byrlcreem Hair Gel

OK, this is a bad start for the day. I'm already at the final boarding point at KLIA to Singapore. The security check confiscated my hair gel. Reason ? It's more than 125ml ??? Unbelievable!!!
It's good that the air port provide free wireless Internet. At least I feel better blogging about it.

Fickle Minded

How do you deal with someone who is fickle minded ? At one time they want things to be done this way & before you know it, at a blink of an eye, they want the other way round. I have to deal with this fella at work!

A senior citizen drove his brand new BMW Z3 convertible out of the car salesroom. Taking off down the motorway, he floored it to 90mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left. 'Amazing!' he thought as he flew down the M40, enjoying pushing the pedal to the metal even more.

Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a police car behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring. 'I can get away from him - no problem!' thought the elderly nutcase as he floored it to 110mph, then 120, then 130mph.

Suddenly, he thought,'What on earth am I doing? I'm too old for this nonsense!' So he pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the police car to catch up with him. Pulling in behind him, the police officer walked up to the driver's side of the BMW, looked at his watch and said, 'Sir, my shift ends in 10 minutes. Today is Friday and I'm taking off for the weekend. If you can give me a reason why you were speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go.'

The man, looked very seriously at the policeman, and replied, 'Years ago, my wife ran off with a policeman. I thought you were bringing her back.'

'Have a good day, Sir,' said the policeman.

PC Hygiene

Found this great & informative read from HP site.


We all know about the viruses and bugs that lurk inside our computers… but what about the pests living ON them? As people spend more and more time in front of their PCs, and as electronic devices are increasingly carried from place to place, it stands to reason that they’re going to get pretty dirty.

The main cause of dirty keyboards is employees who don’t wash their hands after using the toilet, and eating at the desk. The food crumbs left behind encourage the growth of millions of bacteria. Even simple dust can contribute to the problem, since dust traps moisture and creates an environment suitable for bacteria growth.

How much bacteria are we talking about? The British magazine Which? Computing asked a microbiologist to come to their offices and conduct swab tests of their keyboards. As it turned out, the keyboards were dirtier than the office toilet seat – and one of the keyboards was actually five times as dirty as the toilet seat. In fact, the keyboards were so bacteria-laden that they could cause symptoms of food poisoning and other illnesses.

We’re not trying to put you off your lunch – which we hope you aren’t eating at your desk, by the way – but it is important to realise just how many germs you could be exposing yourself to and how to protect yourself.

Here are some tips for keeping your PC from making you sick.

Be vigilant about handwashing

Always wash hands when returning from the bathroom, and several other times throughout the day too – especially if someone in the office is ill. According to microbiologist Dr Charles Gerba of the University of Arizona, "When someone is infected with a cold or flu bug the surfaces they touch during the day become germ transfer points because some cold and flu viruses can survive on surfaces for up to 72 hours.”

Don’t eat at your desk

Keep those sandwich crumbs out of your keyboard! Use lunchtime as an opportunity to get away from your PC for a while, and take your lunches out of the office or in a designated break room.

Use antibacterial wipes to clean your entire desk and telephone area

According to Dr Gerba’s research, a desk is capable of supporting 10 million microbes and the average office contains 20,961 microbes per square inch, while the average toilet seat contains 49 microbes per square inch. You can reduce 99 percent of the nasty things growing in your working area by regularly wiping everything down with disinfectant alcohol wipes. Clean the whole desk, the phone, and anything else you touch regularly.

Regularly clean your keyboard, mouse and monitor screen

Here’s the process you should follow when giving your PC or notebook a cleaning (which you should be doing weekly, if possible). Before you get started, be sure to turn the computer off and unplug the keyboard if you’re using a PC.

Keyboard: first, turn the keyboard upside down and gently knock the crumbs out of it. Then set it upright again and use a compressed air can, a small vacuum or small paint brush to sweep out any remaining debris. Finish by wiping with an alcohol wipe to remove bacteria. But don’t use any harsh cleaning agents, as they can remove the paint from the keys.

Monitor: whether you have a glass or LCD screen, use a lightly dampened cloth to remove dust. You can also use pre-moistened monitor wipes, available at any computer store, but don’t use any commercial glass cleaning products as these can damage the screen.

Mouse: again, take out your alcohol wipes and clean the entire surface of the mouse. You can use a damp cotton-tipped swab to clean around the ball or the optical sensor.

With just a bit of vigilance and proper PC hygiene, you can help prevent your computer from becoming a breeding ground for bacteria – and stay healthier at work!

(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch thegame before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: Thisis actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstoodby men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders whyshe is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you aboutnothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding howand when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you'rewelcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless shesays 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking youat all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' ... that will bring on a'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a women's way of saying F***YOU!

(9) Don't worry, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

A standard 1 teacher, Ms Smith was having trouble with one of her students.
The teacher asked, 'Boy, what is your problem?'

Boy Answered, 'I'm too smart for std 1. My sister is in std 3 and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in std3 too!'

Ms Smith had enough. She took Boy to the principal's office.

While Boy waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation
was. The principal told Ms Smith he would give the boy a test and if he failed to answer any of
his questions he was to go back to the first-grade and behave. She agreed. Boy was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.

Principal: 'What is 3x3?'

Boy: '9'.

Principal: 'What is 6x6?'

Boy: '36'.

And so it went with every question the principal thought a third-grade should know. The principal looks at Ms Smith and tells her, 'I think Boy can go to the third-grade.' Ms Smith says to the principal, 'I have some of my own questions. Can I ask him?' The principal and Boy both agree.

Ms Smith asks, 'What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?'

Boy: after a moment 'Legs.'

Ms Smith: 'What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?'

Boy: 'Pockets.'

Ms Smith: 'What starts with a C and ends with a T, is hairy, oval, and delicious and contains thin whitish liquid?'

Boy: 'Coconut'

Ms Smith: 'What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?'

The principal's eyes open really wide and before he could stop the answer, Boy was taking charge.

Boy: 'Bubblegum'

Ms Smith: 'What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs?'

The principal's eyes open really wide and before he could stop the answer....

Boy: 'Shake hands'

Ms Smith: Now I will ask some 'Who am I' sort of questions, okay?

Boy: Yep.

Ms Smith: 'You stick your poles inside me. You tie me down to get me up. I get wet before you do. '

Boy: 'Tent'

Ms Smith: 'A finger goes in me. You fiddle with me when you're bored. The best man always has me first. '

The Principal was looking restless, a bit tense and took one large Patiala Vodka peg.

Boy: 'Wedding Ring '

Ms Smith: 'I come in many sizes. When I'm not well, I drip. When you blow me, you feel good.'

Boy: 'Nose'

Ms Smith: 'I have a stiff shaft. My tip penetrates. I come with a quiver. '

Boy: 'Arrow'

Ms Smith: 'What word starts with a 'F' and ends in 'K' that means lot of heat and excitement?'

Boy: 'Firetruck '

Ms Smith: 'What word starts with a 'F' and ends in 'K' & if u don't get it u have to use ur hand. '

Boy: 'Fork '

Ms Smith: 'What is it that all men have one of it's longer on some men than on others, the pope doesn't use his and a man gives it to his wife after they're married? '


Ms Smith: 'What part of the man has no bone but has muscles, has lots of veins, like pumping, & is responsible for making love? '

Boy: 'HEART. '

The principal breathed a sigh of relief and said to the teacher, 'Send this Boy to University, I got the last ten questions wrong myself!'

Mini with 2 flat tires

Boss walked into the office one morning not knowing that his zipper was down.

His secretary walked up to him and asked, "Boss this morning when you left your house, did you close your garage door?" This was not a phrase that Her Boss understood, so he went into his Office looking a bit puzzled.

When he was about done with his paper work, he suddenly noticed that his Zipper was not zipped up. He zipped up and remembering what his Secretary had told him, finally understood. He then intentionally went out to ask for a cup of coffee from his secretary. When he reached her desk, He said, "When you saw the garage door open did you see my jaguar parked In there?"

The secretary smiled for a moment and said, "No, Boss I didn't. All I saw was a Mini with 2 flat tires."

Elvis in action

Guess who ? hehehe... Elvis sliding on the floor & doing his stuff. Check out the hair, the blue spec & the blue suede shoes !!! Cool ! It all happened on the 2nd night of the trip. Each dept will have to compete with each other with their own performances to win 1st price of RM3000, 2nd price of RM2000 & 3rd price of RM1000. 

On the day before the performance start, I was practising in the hotel room, sliding on the parquet floor. I hurt my knee so bad. The pain were at its worst on the 3rd day. I can bearly walk properly. Anyway, my team won the 2nd price. Worth the pain!

Staff Trip to Redang Island

The staff trip to Redang Island was fun & enjoyable one. The organising team has lined up lots of activity for us. Glad they pick Laguna Redang as the spot as there are just so many things which everyone can do there.

On the first day itself, after some motivational talk, we head to the sandy beach for 'Amazing Race' style of game. Teams will have to pick up their clues at each of the pit stop. The first was to form 2 lines facing each other. First person on the line will have to throw egg to the next person in the opposite row, until it reaches to the last person & collect exactly 9 eggs uncrack! I was throwing the egg to the warehouse guy & omg, he cracked the eggs, about 3 of them.

Next, team will have to eat & drink these :

I have to eat the bitter cucumber, so called 'yellow river'. Omg! Yucky!!! The warehouse guy again this time, almost vomit drinking & chewing the black lemon. Eventually, my team leader, the poor lady have to help him by chewing the lemon which he vomitted out! Eeeeeeeewwwwl...
Next is canoeing. Someone has to canoe far away to the sea & grab the sponges which were tied to the net. That someone is no other than me. It was a horrific moment for me as I do not know how to swim. The moment I sat on the canoe, questions start appearing in my mind. What is the canoe captised? What is I drown? What's going to happen to me ? Who will save me ? Will I be saved on time & still alive ? What are they going to tell my mom ? What's going to happen to my mom ? How will my darling react to this bad news ? But lucky for me, I managed to overcome the fear, keep my cool & keep paddling. It looks simple to canoe, but in actual fact, it's darn hard, especially if you get a partner who sits at the back & do not know how to navigate. I have a very hard time paddling to the right direction, no thanks to my partner.

Then with the sponges we collected, we have to run to the beach, soak the sponges & fill two 1.5L bottles. Running up & down, especially after hard time canoeing was darn tough!
At dinner time, there were more games. The group with 1st, 2nd & 3rd place, got lots of free tupperware products. My group ? 4th place! Darnit!

Redang Island Trip

Company is organising a trip to Redang Island this coming Friday. 3 days 2 night. They never have this for the past 4 years. Well, this year, they managed to hit their target & this trip is to reward the employees.

The group leader has decided to choose a song by Elvis, 'Don't Step on My Suede Shoes'. The guys are suppose to sings & the girls dancing. We have to look for the costume. Darn troublesome! Hate it! And at that night, the dinner theme is 'Back to School'. We have to dressed up! Darn it !!! We have to go through all the trouble to look for dress again!!! Why can't they just organised a simple dinner & games. Let everyone enjoy minus the hassle. Bloody organising committee.

Back From Holiday

The holiday up North during Raya seems to be too short. Wish time will pass by slower during that one whole week with my Lin. Managed to visit an ex-colleague at Kuala Kangsar. It's a bit let down as I thought there will be lots of things to eat. But it's ok since she's having some problem. Pitty her.

On the way down, visited Ipoh town. Nothing much new. Plain same thing. Trying to buy 'salted chicken'. Too bad, the lady said advanced booking is needed as all the 'salted chicken' are sold out. Me & Lin was like "huh, taste that good & popular ka"? Dropped by Jusco for a walk & drove back up to Penang. Overnight at Lin's brother new house. Had seafood at Tambun. Not bad! Me & Lin's first seafood at Tambun.

Played bowling the following 2 days! Funny seing each of us with strange style of bowl. Causes my arms & legs in bad pain after a day. Darn funny looking back at the way we walked :) It was a great relieve after 2 days.

Catched a movie at Queensbay - "Painted Skin". Ate at newly opened Thai shop. The food was good & value for money. Dropped by Village Mall for a walk & had ice-blended. Few hours after back home, had diarrhea. Highly suspected the ice-blended is the culprit ! Darn it !

Overall, I enjoy to the max the time with Lin. It was a good quality time together.

Play Time

Snake related ...

Time to walk over to Damacai Magum Toto

Uninvited Visitor

Had an uninvited visitor this morning. Me & mon got a bad shock early in the morning.

Snake !!!

Saw its head when I was arranging the table. It was below the tv rack & looking straight at me & it move slightly inside. 3 feet long & about 1 inch in diameter. Worried that it might caused more harm (especially with a little girl in the house), we have no choice but do what's necessary. But it was tough, as it is was fighting back.

Thank God I noticed it earlier. Mom said the little girl usually play near at the tv.

Time is Gold

Time really flies !!! Punch in at 8.30am today. I was doing performing backup for a server. While at it, was doing some housekeeping work, re-arranging the cabinets. The previous staff skills of maintaining files, cds, manuals are darn bad!

Didn't realise the time pass so fast. When I look at my watch, it shows 4pm!
So much to do, yet so little time. Time really is gold.

PLUS Toll Collector

The management of PLUS, ought to teach their staff who collect tolls some basic skill like, saying "Terima kasih" or "Thank you" & smile. A little knowledge of maners will do. 

Imagine early in the morning, passing the toll booth as usual, seeing a sour face (as if we the toll payer owed them alot or someone has died).  I have encountered many of them, the way they collect the money, it's darn rude. It's like they are snatching the money away. Rude rude, very rude. 

I have come across just one or two who are really courteous, saying thank you & smile. It's just great being greeted & treating this way.
