Tag - Stupid looking 3POINT8

I got tagged by Evie and Kimfei. When evie 1st tagged me, I thought I could quietly get away with it. But evie is a very persistent woman! I guess she hired Kimfei to tag me!

#Here's the rules. All you gotta do is post the most stupid picture of yourself doing the most stupid / lame / weird / embarassing act that someone asked you to pose for a picture. Secondly, Just tag 5 people to do it, Then you're done. OK?!

My desktop wallpaper is a solarized version of the picture on the left.
I was using 2 monitors, hence there are 2 black rose there on my wallpaper when I use the print screen function. The reason I converted it to a black background is because I'm using a CRT monitor as the 2nd monitor. [Fact: Power consumption can be reduced by as much as 80% if a black background was used on a CRT monitor.]
I'm doing my part to save electricity. Have you?

Update: A request from mr.x to create wonderful magical story behind this rose. There you go, mr.x. Request granted. Follow this link to read the story behind this valentine rose.
Any other request?

Blogger Gathering

Yay! I managed to attend the blogger gathering organized by Princess.Eileen and Evelynholic last friday.

Long Long grandmother story begins here:
Friday, 23rd Nov 2007
9.30pm : Arrived in KLIA
10.10pm : Checkout and got out from the airport
10.55pm : Reached back home, frantically took out my msian IC and my drivers license.
11.10pm : Left home, started my journey to the Curve (gathering venue)

Its been 10months since I last drove. When I first drove the car, I was going at 20km/hr. I think 3 cars honked at me! 5mins later, I slowly ramp it up to 80km/hr and then started to speed at 110km/hr

11.40pm : Reached Damansara
11.40~11.55pm : Turn round and round figuring out where is the Curve.

That Friday was the 1st time I've been to the Curve. I managed to find the parking area after 15mins circling here and there. When I went up to the shopping complex, I panicked when I saw 2 cleaners mopping the floor. Everything was closed and not a person was in sight (except for the 2 cleaner who is staring at me with a very weird look)
Luckily there is a thing called a phone! I found out that those bloggers were in Scarlet clubbing their heart out. I spent another 10mins looking at the building directory only to figure that Scarlet is not in the Curve. Its in the building next to the Curve.

So, made my way to the Curve. On the way there, I managed to bump into Nkwai and Hungwei.
They were so delighted when I told them that I saw them before in the blogosphere. (I mean, I would react the same way if some unknown stranger suddenly comes up to you and said something like: "You look familiar! Do you blog??")

12.**am : Entered Scarlet and met up with the rest of the blogger.

I met up PE and Evie for the 1st time along with yatz, aby, fattien, kimfei, mich, calv, anston, and enegue. (I managed to recall 8 bloggers name. The rest...tak ingat lor)
I met them all in the club. Aisay, I missed a hug from PE. I was kinda blur when I entered the club. I saw PE with her hands wide open and I was standing there like an idiot. Plus, I brought something for PE, but I didn't hand it to her. I was really blur then. *Mistake mistake*
In the club...it was pretty noisy, packed with lights flickering around. Not exactly the perfect place to meet new friends. I gave up on having a proper conversation with any of them since I can hardly hear anything even though they were shouting next to my ears. [Hehe, I do take delight in hearing PE's voice though.]

2.**am : Went limteh with the remaining bloggers who refused to go back home.

This is when I managed to get their name, and the blog they author. And thanks to them, I know that I shouldn't drive anywhere on 24th and 25th of nov because of a possible protest going on in msia.

2.30am : Gathering over. Everyone parted ways, and I too made my way back home.

I got lost in Damansara again. Spent 20mins only to figure out that I making 5 circles around 1Utama, and the Curve. I admit, that was humiliating! 5 circles! I don't think anyone can beat that!

Overall, the gathering is kinda fun! I get to see PE, evie and I managed to meet a couple of new friends!

Interesting note:
1) Now I know why 1 fella stressed to me that anston is a guy! His blog add is daisycave!
2) Nkwai and Hungwei are like professional photographers with their huge cameras.

Motivation Door

Motivation is the X factor that keeps someone going no matter how hopeless a situation may be. Its the reason why dreams are possible.

" Greatness is going to the edge, looking over into the impossible, and then building a bridge to go further."
----Stuart S
I have a motivation door that keeps me going everyday here in sydney. Whenever I feel down, all I need to do is stand in front of my room door and ponder upon the endless possibilities that could happen if all goes well. Sometimes I would imagine the praises, the encores, the acknowledgments that I am going receive.

There is also a plus point behind this motivation door of mine. I believe in the power of subconscious mind and the power of advertising. Repetition is a very powerful advertising tool and this method is freaking powerful!

Since my room door is the place that I will pass by everyday, why not turn it into source of motivation. [Hehe, I had to resort to inanimate objects to motivate me since very few people is able to motivate me at the right time as I love to hide my worries with me]

So, what I did was put some simple motivational pictures on my door. By walking pass it repeatedly, I believe that the motivational message is definitely gonna be stuck in my head. [Like that macho-man song mr.x uses in his blog. The song will be stuck in your head even listening to the whole track once. It uses the power repeatability]

There you go: A snapshot of my door:
  • 3 Kif's to remind me of myself
  • Love, Hugz, and Smiles from the 'Teddy bear' and the 'smiley face'
  • 'Tiger' symbolize greatness
  • A 'graduation person' to remind me of my goal to achieve 1st class honours.
  • The black images are calender wallpaper from Johnnie Walker
  • The doorknob is there just to prove that its a door!
So, what motivates you?

3POINT8 back in msia [updated]

Surprise surprise...I booked my air tic an hour ago. Guess what? I'll be flying back to msia on the 23th of nov [Friday]. My flight will reach msia at 9pm.

Flight details are confirmed!
I'll be rushing to a blogger gathering organised by Princess.Eileen and Evelynholic right after I get out from the airport.

I'm having problem sleeping lately. Something seems to be bothering me lately though I clearly do not know what is it.

This quote keeps popping up in my head:
"Always do what you are afraid to do."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The one thing that most people are likely to regret are the things they didn't try and do. And this left me wondering: "Risks.....Are they worth it?"

Tag - 5 10 15

I have mixed feelings about doing tags now. I used to like tags a lot and I think my mindset is starting to change now...

List out Top 5 Presents you wish for
1. Some small hand made stuff which can last indefinitely. (like a self-made postcard)
2. A PDA so that I can msn wherever I want (mr.x has one of those and he blog in the toilet!)
3. A super chun super geng professional looking SLR. (So that I can post as many photos as HotPinkChili)
4. A VIC. (So that I can decorate the car as how Prin.Eileen decorates it)
5. Postcard! (I love postcards! I think they are the best present anyone can give. Its reachable to every part of the world, small, easy to file, and has the opportunity to travel thousand of miles. Just like a chili padi, small yet meaningful!)

[Out of the 5 presents listed, a postcard is still the best gift to me!]

The person who tagged you is
Fengy (if not mistaken, he is a medic student.)

Your 5 impressions of him/her
  • Brainy, smart and deals with death god (Medic Student)
  • Look like a prefect in sec school (The white shirt, the tie and the way he stands)
  • Like to pose in one corner of the room
  • The only thing he likes to cross are his hands
  • And he lies. (I found out his name is not joe!)
Most memorable things he/she has done for you
He tagged me!

The most memorable words he/she has said to you
"My first time seeing ppl die" (actually it was written in his blog and I so happen to be his reader)

If he/she becomes your lover, you will
I'll change my passport, my ID, delete my blog, delete my friendster, my facebook and wipe my name off from the net and this world! (no wait, I can just intro Fengy to mr.X.... mr.X is into tranny)

If he/she becomes your lover, what they have to improve on will be
How to leave me alone

If he/she become your enemy, you will
Never go the hospital he is attached to. (You'll never know what medic students are capable of. They may take out your liver, your stomach, and your heart, and still keep you alive)

If he/she become your enemy, the reason will be
I didn't reply his tag (I replied your tag here! pls pls....don't take out my liver, my stomach and my heart. Especially my heart...I need it to spread some love around)

Bloggers on msn

“Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.”
4 days ago, mr & ms.sepam added me in their msn friend list! And they messaged me!
mr.sepam = mr.x
ms.spams = pinskterz
[do check out their pinky blog!]

I had a sense of belonging while chatting with them! Its like I'm accepted in their circle of friends. Its like being connected in a way. I don't know how to express this feeling, but its like chatting with a long lost good buddy.

For those who are curious, we talked nonsense stuff all the way. Frankly speaking, its kinda fun chatting with the 2 jokers. I was laughing all the way cause these 2 jokers bomb each other throughout the whole conversation

Wow, blogging does allow one to make new friends!
So bloggers, remember to update your blog!
Non-bloggers, if you want to know more ppl, blogging may be your style!

[Speaking of blogging friends, there is a blogger gathering happening on the 23rd of nov in m'sia, organised by Princess Eileen and Calvin's Wife. It looks like a very happening event. I so wanted to attend the event, but too bad I'll be stuck in syd, aus at that time. Anyway if u have the time, check out their blog]

My final exam is on Wednesday 14th of November. This will be my last uni exam that I have to go through. After that day, no more exam days!
UNSW 1st class Honours Mechatronic engineering degree, here I come!

I sure hope that I don't do something like:
Worse come to worst, I won't draw a hangman even if I don't know how to answer the paper! It'll only make me look bad! I'll probably draw a cute cute doraemon picture. I better spend some time practicing how to draw big puppy eyes. [Which reminds me, I should bring some colour pencils to the exam hall]

Photohunt 83: Flexible

This is my first time participating in this Photohunt game.
More details in PhotoHunt
[Actually, the details are kinda vague. It says that I can join the newbie group if i put the photohunt button which links to the photohunt website. But the thing is I don't see any newbie group.]

You know how youngsters always want their outlook to be hip no matter the circumstances.
My brother, Sean is that kind of people. Even before going to sleep, he has to be 'hip and in', wearing both pyjamas and fashionable clothes at the same time. Now this is what I call flexible!

Naked Introduction

There seems to be a lot of social gathering happening around this month till Christmas. Gathering are fun and its the perfect opportunity to make new friends. But this may not be case for the shy and the anti-social.

Let me present you a trick you can use while meeting someone new.

When you meet someone new, the most standard question that anoyone can ask is:
"Where are you from?"
and if you answer something standard like:
"I'm from Kuala Lipis"

Subsequently, they'll be thinking in their head: "Gosh....Kuala Lipis. I've never been there. hmmm....What do I know about Kuala Lipis? Is that in Malaysia or Indonesia? Maybe its named after Datuk Lipis.... but I'm not sure so I better keep my mouth shut on that one."

Soon, there will be awkward silence between the two of you. You are waiting for his reply while that poor chap is trying to think of something interesting to say. And by the time the both of you leave the whole conversation, both of you guys will be thinking: "What an boring person!"

That is known as the naked introduction where by an information is presented in a naked form.
Whenever someone ask for "Where are you from?", never ever challenge their powers of imagination with a one-word answer. Learn some interesting facts about your hometown that conversational partner can comment on.

Everyone knows that a fisherman uses a different bait for different types of fishes. In your conversation, you should add in extra detail relating to who you are speaking to.

If you are speaking to someone who plays music, you may say: "I'm from Kuala Lipis, the land where Siti Nurhaliza is from. I've even been to her house." This opens the conversational possibilities to Malaysian Idol, Guitar and Stuff, recent tabloid news, Jay Chow, Micheal Jackson's Nose, and etc.
If you attending a fashion event, you may say: "I'm from Kuala Lipis. The reason I left is because the fashion there is so out-dated!" Now the conversation can turn to the joy of shopping, the best place for best bargains, diamonds and jewels, Megamall, and etc.
Or, if you are attending a blogging event, you may say: "I'm from Kuala Lipis. Other than massive fireworks during new year and lion dance during CNY, there isn't much anything happening there. The only reason I came to this event is to meet Princess Eileen." Now now, can anyone tell me what are the possible conversational topic?

Its been 5days since my last post!

You know what? I took mr.X advice on 'It's time to party till you turn purple :D'
And it didn't turn out good. I wanted to exaggerate to the point where I got alcohol poisoning, and got hospitalize. Then again, I wouldn't want people to worry about me.
Folks, mr.X has been known to be the king of sepam who claims to love pink. But for some reason, he changed his blog template to bloody red. Pretty suspicious if you ask me! Bottom line, don't listen to his advice.....Seriously! [Btw if you have time, check out his blog at http://xniquetx.blogspot.com]

Speaking of friends, we all have friends don't we?
When I first started this blog, my aim is to tell people how I'm doing when I first came to australia, especially my parents cause I don't like writing formal emails to my parents. (My mom always stress that I should include the word 'Dear xxx' and 'Regards xxx' in all of my mail.)

But now, this blog has achieve more than that! I made a few new friends!
3 days ago, a good good blogger friend, Princess Eileen said: "I consider u good fren :)"
WoW! What an honour! I feel so appreciated! *warm fuzzy feeling*

So, yea.....blogs did bring improvement to my social life! Some may claim that its virtual, fake and it doesn't have much impact compared to real physical face to face contact...... But I don't care, since I don't share the same view as those people.

By the way, I got 2 awards from adyla!
1) Blogging That Hits The Mark
2) Break Out Blogger.
