It's end of 2009

It’s going to be 2010 soon, and I start writing this since a week before that cause too free at home. Ok, 2009 is going to be history soon, and 2010 is a new tomorrow. Every New Year eve, I will spend some time to write something about myself and conclude the year.

This year is quite a special year for me, as you all know I finally upgrade my status from single to married :) after 11 years relation marathon.

Back to year 2006 New Year eve, I’m alone in the office preparing my thesis and until I so down and depress so I went to Ikea alone to get myself two units of Billy bookshelves to cheer up myself. Well, the bookshelves are still standing still in my house.

Then in year 2007, one of the busiest year for me but the reward is very disappointed. Anyway, it’s history already. I still failed to change my status that year even though I had tried my best to do it. And last year, again I’m failed to change my status. But I bought myself a SLR ^.^

Ok, this year is year 2009, how I going to conclude this year.

First, most important and most proud of me is I finally married the girl I love after 11 years :) on 12 Dec. Finally I don’t need hide from my colleagues anymore when they ask me about when to get marry, no need to take angpao anymore. But now they start to push me to get myself a siu siu kion -.- (You thought I don’t want meh, have to ask my wife permission also mah).

About career, as usual, not much of improvement, still continues the two stupid projects. No sure this year got bonus or not, God please give me strength to continue :p

Some unlucky things happen to my family but luckily enough that it is not that worst. Hope next year will be a better year.

I managed to go to the other side of the earth this year with brother Jamie, ^.^ lucky. Visit to New York and it is a wonderful trip. I wish I can bring my wife to go there again. Then, thanks to fanshue for all the hard work and let me go to Finland and Paris. Finland is a very quiet place, not much building and activity to do. Paris on the other hand is very beautiful and exciting city, although I only had 1/2 day walking around the Paris but it’s very enjoyable. Once again, I wish I can go there again with someone I love.

And on Sept., finally fly to Taiwan with my colleagues for 8 days and I love Taiwan, I love the scenery, the environment and the people, especially the lenlui ^.^ We finish 1/2 of the Taiwan and crossing from west to east through the most wonderful and adventures mountains’ road. I hope we can finish the second part of Taiwan in near future.

Time pass tremendously fast this year, I wish I can slow it down but too bad it just ignore my request. I travel a lot this year and I think I had spent more than 1/3 of my time at oversea. Every time when I return to Bolehland, I was just so excited to see the green trees and rain. Really, there is no other place like returning to home; no matter how wonderful is the world out there.

Ok, then what are my New Year wishes?

First, I wish to become a good husband.

Second, I wish continue to become the sohai and let you all continue laugh at my stupidity.

Third, I wish I can pick up the dream that I left some years ago.

Ok, nothing will be done if I continue sitting here and writing about the New Year. So, happy New Year and good luck to you all. Cheer!

Happy Winter Solstice

Today is winter solstice (冬至), one of the important solar terms (节气) in Chinese lunar calendar. In this day, it is the shortest day of the year for north hemisphere. Chinese believe that when we reached to the darkest end, it will be the beginning of the brighter side. Therefore we celebrate the longest night of the year and after this day, the sun will move towards north and the day will getting longer and longer from day to day.

Due to winter solstice is based on the sun instead of moon; therefore it is almost fixed every year between 21st - 23rd December. To calculate the exact day for winter solstice, we can use the following formula:

Winter solstice day = Y * D + C – L
Where,
Y is the last two digit of the year,
D is the a constant, which is 0.2422,
L is the number of lead year
And for C is another constant, for 21st century, C = 21.94 and for 20th century, C = 22.60.

For example, when is the winter solstice fell on 2009?
The answer is (9 * 0.2422) + 21.94 – (9 / 4) = 21.87. Therefore it is fell on 22nd Dec. 2009.
Based on the calculation, we will going to celebrate winter solstice on 22nd Dec. until year 2056 and start from year 2057 we will going to celebrate winter solstice on 21st Dec. Not sure I'm still there or not :)

Ok, now forget about this math and back to normal life.

Winter solstice is very important in Chinese culture and it is more important than Chinese New Year because it’s the beginning of the "bright side". Therefore, this day family members gather together and have a nice and warm dinner and follow by sweet dumpling (汤圆) as symbolic of reunion.

Once you ate the sweet dumpling, it mean, you are older another year :)
So, happy winter solstice and happy grow up.

Introducing Mrs. Ding

In year 1998 May, when I was reported to UKM, I met this lovely lady and she become my very first girl friend and also the last one.

After we know each other for 4017 days, finally, she become my wife. I'd managed to change our status from single to married on the last day of year 11th. If you ask me is 11 years a long period? I will tell you that, yes, it is too long for us to remain the status as single, but it is definitely too short for me to love her. All the while, I respect her decision to remain single due to some reasons. And finally, she give me permission to change the status.

Introduce to you all, Mrs. Ding, my lovely wife.

Can you put more effort?

Before I continue the writing, first of all I would like to clarify that I am not very particular on food. I can't differentiate a frozen fish or a fresh fish when I'm having fish. Maybe thats why I hate fish, the only fish I like is stingray, especially Portugal grilled stingray, yum yum, damn nice. By the way, for those fans of Mid Valley's Portugal grilled fish, good news for you all, the stall is back to Mid Valley's food court again, I hope it is as delicious as previous after it has missing for sometime.

Basically, when I say the food is good, and it is really good in my point of view, I believe it will be very heavy taste. Most of the time, you will heard me telling you "Ok" or "normal". Well, it mean nothing special about the food, can try to eat, wouldn't leave any memory and wouldn't miss that food also. But, I found that recently I start to complain about food. trust me, my sensor is as bad as previous. Then, why and what make me start complain?

When you go to the food court, try to look at the stalls and tell me how many stall is actually managed by local chef? Most of the time you saw an Indon is preparing wan tan mee, a Bangla is serving bah kut teh, or a Burmese is cooking ho po lui char. More and more difficult to get a stall which is cook by a local people, and so far those food stall that I categorized as good is definitely own and cook by local people.

When people cook to make money, their food will be tasteless. Because their main objective is to make money and not to please their customer. In other words, they reduce the cost of material, shorten the time of preparation and use unprofessional cook, and trust me, base on the law of natural, it wouldn't be good. Well, it is not Win7, therefore there is such thing as the "new" efficiency - doing more with less.

I believe this world is fair, at least fair enough in most of the time. When you put more effort on something, the result will not disappoints you much. But if you are those people waiting the lucky to drop from the sky and you are so luckily pick it up and so luckily bring more luck to you, you can continue to dream this on, but don't count me in :)

Personal privacy

According to the Internet news, 61% of Japan wives have checked their husband's mobile phone for evident of extramarital affair, curiosity and honesty. In other words, they don't trust their husband.

Some people said, for a girl to check her boy friend's mobile phone is caring, and for guy to check his girl friend's mobile phone is a bad personality. I believe this is true under certain circumstances. But just a advice to all the girls, do this in front of your boy friend instead of do it secretly, if and only if you're lack of confident in your boy friend. And for guys, please delete those sensitive data from your personal mobile phone if you don't want to be caught red-handed :p and remember to do this for email and chatting application like Skype, MSN and Yahoo Messenger also.

I am not a hacker, but if I want to know your secret is just like open a can of Coke. Lot of my friend asking me to fix their PC, and with the knowledge I have, they are like standing naked in front of me once I put my hand on your PC. Anyway, don't worry until now I still holding my principles to avoid touching people's privacy. I am a friend not a hacker. This remind me of Edison and Gillian case, haha, no one trust PC technician after that incident. Anyway, if you want to destroy the HDD data, the only way is to melt it, don't just delete and put in the recycle bin or even emptied recycle bin can be recycled :p

So, start to trust your partner and respect their privacy, although you are their closest person, it doesn't mean you can break into his/her boundary to look at their secrets and privacy. Everyone have their own secrets that they only want to keep for themselves.

Noah's Ark

Lord said to Noah, "There's gonna be a flood."

And the Lord spoke to Noah and said "In six months I'm going to make it rain until the whole earth is covered with water and all the evil people are destroyed. But I want to save a few good people, and two of every kind of living thing on the planet. I am telling you to build yourself an Ark" said the Lord. And in a flash of lightning He delivered the specifications for the Ark.

"OK," said Noah, trembling in fear and fumbling with the blueprints.

"Six months, and then it will start to rain" said the Lord. "You should have your Ark completed, or learn how to swim for a very long time."

And six months passed. The skies began to cloud up and rain began to fall. The Lord saw that Noah was sitting in his front yard, weeping. And there was no Ark.

"Noah," shouted the Lord, "Where is your Ark?" A lightning bolt crashed into the ground next to Noah, for emphasis.

"Lord, please forgive me," begged Noah. "I did my best. But there were big problems. First, I had to get a building permit for the Ark construction project, and your plans didn't meet Code. So I had to hire an engineer to redraw the plans.

"Then I got into a big fight over whether or not the Ark needed a fire sprinkler system.

"My neighbors objected, claiming I was violating zoning by building the Ark in my front yard, So I had to get a variance from the city planning commission.

"Then I had a big problem getting enough wood for the Ark because there was a ban on cutting trees to save the Spotted Owl. I had to convince U.S. Fish & Wildlife that I needed the wood to save the Owls. But they wouldn't let me catch any owls. So, no owls.

Then the carpenters formed a union and went on strike. I had to negotiate a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board before anyone would pick up a saw or a hammer. Now we've got 16 carpenters going on the boat, and still no owls.

"Then I started gathering up the animals, and got sued by an animals rights group. They objected to me taking only two of each kind.

"Just when I got the suit dismissed, EPA notified me that I couldn't complete the Ark without filing an environmental impact statement on your proposed Flood. They didn't take kindly to the idea that they had no jurisdiction over the conduct of a Supreme Being.

"The Army Corps of Engineers wanted a map of the proposed new flood plan. I sent them a globe.

"Right now I'm still trying to resolve a complaint from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over how many Croatians I'm supposed to hire, the IRS has seized all my assets claiming I'm trying to avoid paying taxes by leaving the country, and I just got a notice from the state about owing some kind of use tax.

"I really don't think I can finish the Ark for at least another five years," Noah wailed.

The sky began to clear. The sun began to shine. A rainbow arched across the sky. Noah looked up and smiled. "You mean you're not going to destroy the earth?" Noah asked, hopefully.

"Wrong!' thundered the Lord. "But being Lord of the Universe has its advantages. I fully intend to smite the Earth, but with something far worse than a Flood. Something Man invented himself."

"What's that?" asked Noah.

There was a long pause, and then the Lord spaketh his last Word: "Government."

This is a good one, hahahahahah.........

Engineer and the lawyer

There was once an engineer who found a magic lamp. When he rubbed it, a genie jumped out and said to him, "You have three wishes. But there is a catch - this wish system of mine was designed by a lawyer, so whatever you wish for every lawyer in the world will get double of!"

The engineer replied, "That's no problem, I can live with that." He then said, "For my first wish, I wish I had a Ferarri."

"OK", said the genie, and a Ferarri appeared in front of the engineer. "But remember, every lawyer in the world now has 2 Ferarris," the genie told the engineer.

The engineer remained unperturbed and said, "For my second wish, I wish for a million bucks." So a million bucks appeared in front of the engineer and the genie said, "remember, every lawyer in the world now has 2 million bucks."

The engineer was non-committal and then said, "I always wished I could donate a kidney!"

Moral of this joke: never make an engineer pissed, you will get nothing at the end :)

A stupid joke

My brain: Hey, heart, I want to do this, you think it's right or not?
My heart: Ya, no problem.
My brain: Ok. But one thing, every time when I ask you, you always say ok one. I seldom hear you say no, can not. Are you sure the answer you told me is correct?
My heart: Alo, brain damage ah you, if you don't trust me, then why you ask me. You ask me for fun is it? I give answer already and you're questioning back my intelligent. Are you trying to insult me?
My brain: Hey brother, I ask only mah, want to be so angry meh? No ask lo.
My heart: Alo, you call this asking question meh? You are questioning my professional. I told you the answer already and you asking me back is my answer correct ah! If you think you can have better answer, you go do it la, why come and ask me and then trying to insult me say I might be wrong.
My brain: Brother, want to say like that meh. I just want double confirm mah, like that also can not ah? What kind of brother is this.
My heart: Alo, brain damage, don't brother here and brother there. Since when we are brother? Me and you very close meh? Brother, brother, brother with your head la.
My brain: Walao, you want to say until that meh? What brother my head? What happen to you today, so angry one, relative come ah?
My heart: Alo, you don't start insulting my privacy after you insulted my intelligent. Don't let me see you alone in the toilet. You're brain damage one, no use already, staying in this world is just wasting the resources only. If I were you, I go bang my head to the wall long time ago.
My brain: Fine, thats it. Ok, bye. stupid heart.
My heart: Idiot brain.

That day, the heart being sold to the devil to exchange for something. The brain never has chance to say goodbye to the heart. At the corner where heart stayed, he leave a message.

All these years I try to encourage you, my brother brain, to try to be positives and try to be useful to this world. Although some of you actions are not commonly accepted by others, but as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else, who care about those traditional mindset. I don't know when we can meet again, I just hope you can continue the spirit even I am not around. Goodbye and take care.

Sorry if this joke is not funny, it is just a stupid joke as I told you in the title.

I like your post

I like your post, because I think it is meaningful. The way you express yourself make me admire your post.

Well, your post is so simple but yet meaningful. Sometime, it look complicated but it is actually simple; sometime it look simple but it is actually complicated. Just don't know how to describe it. But I just hope I can have your post.

Do you mind to exchange post with me?

Well, my post is also ok, just not as good as yours. Most of the time, my post just very time consuming, but sometime, I try to make it simple and short also. Well, complicated is definitely not my character. I am a simple man.

So, how? Want to exchange the post with me?

I become the DC and you become the engineer. Can? XD

My first 11km

All my friends know me that I hate sport, the only sport that I like is baseball, I don't know exactly why I love baseball, but I think one of the reason is the baseball cap. It is just cool. Too bad, Bolehland don't encourage baseball sport.

Among those sports, the one that I hate most is running. So far in my memory, I never able to finish my running test in time. I alway the last one that finish it. I hate that since primary school. I alway give myself an excuse that I'm to genius to become a sport man.

But when I getting old, I start to realize that I left too much failures and blank papers in my life. So I plan to pick it up and I want to complete it one by one before when I'm too old and I'm too late to regret.

Thanks to fanshue for accompany me to run in this 1/4 marathon, and it is the first time I complete my running in time. Nothing is more happier than you have conquered your own fear.

Thanks to 4,082,411 of Bolehlandian

Last week, our government said that to prevent us from overspend the money, so they apply tax on our credit card. The more you have, the more you need to pay. Wow, I feel so touch that our good government care about us. And because of this our government will have about extra $550 million income. Then they will use this money to improve our country like having some parties, go oversea vacation, etc.

After that, they also care about our people safety, so all cars above 15 years need to send for checking. Wow, again, I feel so touching to have such a nice government. I love them. Again the fees collected should be a huge amount of income to the country. Although we need to wait for maybe 1 week to check the car due to the limitation of the facility. And we maybe need to buy our hardworking inspector drink coffee to reduce their tiredness and to make them please.

So, hereby I would like to thanks 4,082,411 sohais in this country to vote for this bunch of sohais to govern our country. Thank you and I hope we can vote for them again.

It's Thursday night

I'm at the airport again, going back to Bolehland after almost 3 weeks away from home. I miss my home. There is not other place better than home.

it will be sometime before I travel again, I hope so. Thanks to my wild horse handle the site for me, he is a great engineer although he always complain that he want to give up his engineering life. Be proud of what you have been trained for, it another way of respecting yourself and your life.

Talking about ambition, I remember when I'm still in primary school, I wish to become inventor like Thomas Edison. I believe he is idol for lot of children. But sooner I realized that being an inventor is not an occupation and not much people can really make it. So Einstein come into my life. He is a genius and he is a humble genius. The again, I realize no everyone can become scientist, you have to be a genius and luck to finally come out with something useful to the world.

Finally, I wish myself to become an electronics engineer and I hold my dream since primary school until I make sure myself graduate as an electronics engineer. And I did.

I am not a rich guy, I need to work to earn a bowl of rice. Bolehland's engineers are mostly underpaid, and I believe I'm part of the sample that built up the statistic figure. Anyway, I don't need to beg under the bridge for my meal :)

Love your job is another way to respect your life. This world is wonderful, it is not grey colour.

Ok, battery low :)

Finland


Have been in Finland city for about 5 days, it is a very nice country. Very quiet, calm, everywhere you will see trees, green grass, flowers, lake, river, ... it is just beautiful.

I'm spending most of my evening time walking around the city, really enjoyable, although walking alone. The weather is cool, most of the time my right hand is frozen due to holding camera all the time. It's difficult to wear glove when you want to take photo, anyway, it is not that cold after awhile.

Meal time is always a difficult time for me cause I really don't know what is written in the menu. I only know something call fish, chicken, lamb and pork and I cant found these words in the menu :( People like to talk how great they are and how knowledgeable. I sit there like a kayu. I miss nasi lemak :_(

Working is tire, not because of works, as usual because of human. Well, I better forget it now.

Will be stayed at Paris for a night, will try to go Paris city to hunt the Eiffel tower :)

Ok, that all for today. Wish it is a sunny day at Paris :)

Finland

Well, it is 10.30PM already, almost 48 hours didn't sleep already. Taking night flight is killing me -.-

Finally I touch down at Finland at 2.30PM. Ok, before I forget, there is not len lui sit beside me from Dustyland to Paris (-.- someone curse me, i think), but lucky enough, no lady boy sit beside me also :p

Reach Paris around 7AM and get the transit at Terminal 2, and guess what, I'm so lucky to see a group of Japanese school girl queuing at the boarding gate there. Wow, so sweet, so kawaii, hehe. Thankew you for the consolation price.

Finland is like a very small town if looking from the plane. Not much tall buildings. What I can see from the plane is yellow and green tree and field with houses scatter around. Very nice view actually. After checked in to the hotel, I walk around the Helsinki city center area. With the cold weather (7 Deg. C) and the yellowish tree, it is just so beautiful. All the tire suddenly just disappear.


At night, I'm having dinner with the client at the restaurant (Papa Giovanni). I'm not very particular on food, so, not bad the serving, just have to wait very long time and expensive if convert the currency -.-

Ok, going to sleep now. Tomorrow not sure what will happen, hopefully is a good luck day for me again.

P.S. I saw some Japanese teens staying at same hotel, hehe, no sure...

Friday, October 09, 2009

It's Friday again

As usual, I like to write blog on holiday, and today is Friday and it is a off day for me cause Dustyland don't work on Friday.

What to write today? Ok, start from work first.

I'm going to Finland tonight for a factory acceptance test for inverter. Thank you to FanShue for preparing the submission for me, I owe you a fridge magnet. I try to get for you this time :p

I'm flying again tonight, thanks to God that I do not need to become zookeepers tonight. And again, I implore you, my God, please mercy me by sending a lenlui to sit beside me tonight. Thankew you. Transit at Paris and will reach Helsinki in the evening.

Will be at Finland for 5 days before I back to Dustyland. This time will stay 1 night at Paris due to the connecting flight is not possible, hehe, thankew you God. And the bad news is, the sohai Toh set me up by disclose my itinerary >( I hate him >"<

Anyway, I know I'm always a good luck person, all the while I'm very good luck. Let see what happen next. I got few hours to walk in Paris and I promise to my apprentice, UMG with BS spirit, that I going to take the Eiffel tower photo for her. I hope I wouldn't disappoint her and myself.

Taiwan: Day 1

As promise in my previous blog, I try to write down my travel story about Taiwan.



We reached Taipei airport about 4PM due to the delay of our beloved aviation, AirAsia. From the airport, we went to Taipei city by bus and we stop at the Taipei central station. From there, we went to Ximending (西门町) using LRT.



After checked in to the hotel, I found that my bag is wet -.-, the stupid AirAsia didn’t cover their customer’s luggage when they are loading it to the plane. Half of my luggage is wet. And I have to hang all my underwear around the hotel room -.-, stupid airline. The lesson here is, if you are using this stupid airline, please cover your clothes with a plastic bag before you put it into the luggage.

After settle the hotel, we went to walk around the Ximending street. A very nice place, full with youngster, especially those pretty mei mei #^.^#, very enjoyable walk. We have some snacks there, walking and eating, very relaxing night.



After filled up our tummy, we decided to go to the Taipei city and visit the famous book store ChengPin (成品). Once reached in front of the book store, we saw the Taipei 101 but without light -.- maybe they are having energy saving exercise. Well, good for our earth.



After taking some photos of the 101, I went to search for my sister souvenir, a book authored by 小S. I’m surprise my sister asked me to buy a book, basically that what she hate most. My doubt cleared after she open the book, I only realize, it’s a comic book -.-

We went back to the hotel before 12AM since that is the last LRT train we can use. While working back to hotel, we have some photo with my idol, Rainie Yang. Huan not sure is drunk or too sad, he tried to kiss her -.- and there is a CCTV monitoring these 6 sohais doing some stupid thing there :)



Well, that’s the end of day one @ Taiwan.

About love

Love is like planting an unknown seed. No one knows what kind of fruit or flower it will be until you plant it and put your effort to grow it. No one knows when it will get flowering. If you are planting a water melon, you can harvest in few months time; if it is a mango tree, maybe it takes few years; worst a durian tree, it will take long long time to wait for the harvesting.

Some plants need less care, some need more. Some plants only need you to put the seed to the earth and it will grow; other just needs extra care to prevent it from dying. No matter what plant you are planting, putting effort to watering and taking care the plant is your duty to make sure it grows up healthy.

If there is a seed in your hand, please don’t hesitate to start planting. Some seeds just can’t wait. No one can predict the future, but if you don’t take the first step to start the planting, I can predict you will just look at the dying seed.

Whether your reward will proportional to the effort you had put in, no one can tell you now, only time will tell. Even you can’t reach the harvesting stage, please thanks to him / her for their effort to being with you.

Taiwan: Prologue

Finally I went to Taiwan from 1/9/09 until 8/9/09 with another five friends for a vacation. I try to record down the interesting places that I’d been went to as much detail as I can. Hope it is useful for other reader who wants to travel to Taiwan by free and easy mode.

Before I continue on the trip detail, there is something about Taiwan.

1. About girl first, please don’t complain :p, Taiwanese girl always know how to dress themselves. Therefore, it is always a very nice view on the street with the pretty girls walking around.
2. The transportation around the Taipei city is very complete. Just get a day pass (NT180) and you can travel around Taipei city by LRT or bus. Very convenience. But if you plan to travel outside Taipei city, the best way is still get a yellow cab. Slightly expensive but save lot of time. And those taxi drivers are very familiar with that entire tourist attraction place.
3. Taiwan has various kind of snack. Try whatever you can but please bear in mind that not all snacks can meet your expectation. Anyway, no harm to try. Try to ask the local people for advice.
4. Ximending is a very nice place to stay. First of all the hotel is cheap; secondly, the transportation is very convenience. And most of the hotel is equipped with free Wi-Fi service. So bringing mininote or mobile PC is the best idea travelling around while you can online to check your email or FB or blog 
5. 7-11 is just few steps from you. You will see everywhere is 7-11, very convenience.

Ok, let go to the itinerary summary.
1/9 – Fly from LCCT to Taipei. Walking around Ximending and Taipei city.
2/9 – To JingGuaShi (金瓜石), then JiuFen (九份) then Danshui (淡水, 渔人码头) and finally Shilin night market (士林夜市).
3/9 – To TaiChong (台中), then to Puli (埔里) and stop at Sun Moon Lake (日月潭).
4/9 – From Sun Moon Lake (日月潭) to CingJing (清静) and have a night there.
5/9 – From CingJing (清静) to HeHuan mount (合欢山) then travel through very challenging mount road to HuaLian (花莲).
6/9 – From HuaLian (花莲) go back to Taroko (太鲁阁) for the wonderful Taroko. Next continue to back to Taipei through the west coast and stop at ChingShui (清水短崖) for photo taking.
7/9 – Travel around Taipei city.
8/9 – Walking around Ximending and to airport and back to Bolehland.

I will try to elaborate detail of each place in the coming blog. Hope I still able to deliver all the information I had. Ok, that all for today.

Rainy weekend



Wake up early in the morning and it is raining. When I on my MP3, I feel so calm when I heard this song.

PS, I hope my portrait wouldn't spoiled the scene :p

Busy week

This week a busy week for me but still not that "really" busy. Manage to run one of my plant in fully auto mode. Nothing much bugs need to clear this time. I'm quite surprise. Not much challenge :) hope next project can be more complicated a bit. Hope my control people didn't read my blog. Looking forward to a more intelligent system in my next project, to the another level of pinnacle.

It is always my habit to give the best control system based on my available knowledge by using all the instruments and equipments I have. I don't like to use a Ferrari to tell you how fast I can go, but I like to use a Kancil to show you I can go faster than lot of big cars. That is my power to move me forward. Anyway, like all the lansi designer characteristic, I welcome suggestion, but I don't welcome instruction. I believe that a masterpiece can only done by a creator not creators. It will become rubbish when everyone come and put their hand on the work. You either end with a double works to clean the shit or you let the masterpiece become rubbish.

It's end of August, time just too fast for me or maybe I should say I'm too slow to catch the time. Getting old, can't run too fast. Ya, talking about running, I hope I can run at the coming marathon event and hope I don't get fainted :)

Ok, next week go to Taiwan to have some rest with my friends. Hope can take some nice picture and show you all.

It's 5.30am

This is my third time I wake up at 5.30am, I think something wrong with my body clock. Anyway, tonight I will get myself a coke blended Chivas before sleep :)

My natural enemy, Mr. Toh, going back to Dustyland today. I wish him a safe journey and having a good luck to meet a pretty girl in the flight. Bro, we can tell you everything techniques and way to tackle a girl, but we can't do it for you, so please action. there is a group of genius behind you to support you on the technical side. The consultation is free of charge.

Huan is flying to Kiasiland today and he is very worry now. We scare him, his friends scare him also and worst thing is he scare himself, hahahaha... Don't worry bro, just tell her you true feeling about her and even she reject you AGAIN, you are still a VIP for her. Anyway, I don't want to drunk myself when you back, we all hope to celebrate another happy couple. Good luck!

Lum has ended his single life since last few months, I think, and I know his girl, underage girl from Mars, quite well, cause both of us are quite lansi and cha people without thinking of consequences. Bro, having a school girl as your girl friend is definitely not an easy task, and I know you can handle it well.

My latest friend, Elaine, still an underage young lady. Get to know her because of Toh. She is a very sporty girl and once she start talking, she will cheer you up by either burning you or burning herself to make you laugh. A very nice friend that you don't want to miss. Girl, study hard and play hard before you step into the adult world.

My wild horse, Mr. Sam, has changed his look after we lectured him for more than three weeks. His sensors are a bit dumb to sense the environment. The way he talk still very straight and no f care one. This type of human has extinct since Jurassic age, cause their simple mindset. Sam, Earth is a very dangerous place, you faster go back to Mars la. Anyway, I welcome you to Earth.

Our office only female engineer, Losnie, is getting marry soon. By the way, just to clarify something here; girl, I didn't disclose your wedding plan, my boss don't know receive from who. Anyway, it is a happy news, concratulation. And for 001, bro, I still have to put this number to represent you since you still not yet officially tell us :), well done!

Chin's wife is oversea and that bugger asking us to go clubbing with him -.-
Bro, I need to put this face to convince my girl that I'm not going with you, sms me the time and place :p

Ngu and Jamie nothing special, still the same, except they try to poison me with E71 and luckily I can tahan that poison, hahahaha, bros, I'm genius you know.

Ng and Cheong nothing much also, still like two piece of living dictionary for us to search for knowledge :)

Ok, last part, about myself. Hmmm... I bought my wedding ring, finally :) It will be a busy year for me, finally I dare to say that I'm busy for myself. Wish me good luck.

It is 2913th days

Thank to my girl remind me that today is 2913th days I'd worked in my current company.

First of all, I would like to thanks to my manager for choosing me as his engineer. And also want to apology to him since I'm the most failure subordinate he ever have.

Secondly, thanks to all seniors for guides to me all these years. Arigato.

Thirdly, thanks to all juniors for giving support to us. I hope all the juniors appreciate the working culture that we have maintained. With these spirits, we have the best team in town. Nothing can stop us.

Lastly, thanks to the company for paying me salary each month and thanks to bosses for giving bonus to us.

Arigato everyone.

The successful work-avoider

When "I don't know" is not good enough, then the following technique shall be applied.

Friday, August 07, 2009

永恒

简单的对话 空虚的承诺
深深的黑夜 清清的凌晨
深情的亲吻 清淡的微笑
简短的再见 深长的拥抱

一次 又 一次
像无人的 旋转木马
我和你的影子起舞
像发条 缓解每个时刻

你指向明月 并希望它
是的 我们共同属于那天空
但我在这 期盼着你
期待 属于我们共同的时间

记得 我们制造的 爱的项链
你和我 是永恒
不灭于 时间的洗礼
系着的是 我们的爱

Poem by Mr. Toh, I hope I'd translated his words correctly

1st day @ Bolehland

Finally, I'd touch down safely at Bolehland Internation Airport yesterday. It has been long time I didn't see green huge threes and rain :p. Anyway, this is a very sensitive issue, therefore I stop describing the beauty of the nature or else my life will be in danger.

I'm lucky cause my cousin give me tickets to the concert held at Bukit Jalil. It's a very nice concert. Once again due to my limited English, I don't know how to describe the the concert. I found a video clip, I hope you enjoy it.



Just before the show start, the operator from one of my plants called me that the plant control system is down. Well, after more than 4 years of non-stop operation without maintenance, finally it break down. I called my S.I. for help and he is so kind enough to help me although he got very strong reasons to ignore my call. And guess what is the problem that cause the system broke down? :) HDD full!

Sometime, I felt very disassapointed with all these so called engineers that have been assigned to operate the plant. Maybe, you will think I'm lansi, but in this case, I'm not. I'm tired. I'm tired to receive a call in the mid night and ask me to go to site to reset a switch or to plug back a cable. And funny enough that the operator asked me a very stupid but very logical question, he asked Are u still working there? I wish to tell him no, but I didn't. I don't know until when my answer will become yes. I have no hope on that, just let the correct time come to change my answer.

Toh Principle

One day, my natural enemy, Mr. Toh, told me that based on his study and observation, he had concluded the following principle which named after his surname, Toh Principle:

When the ratio of sohai is drop below 1.5, the performance will drop


Before I explain the Toh Principle, I would like to clarify the meaning of sohai in this theory.

Sohai is defined as individual who is giving output without counting the return or input. These individuals are against the law of physics because most of the time the output over input is above 1. Therefore, it does not obey the conservation of energy.


Class, may I start to prove Toh Principle?

Ok, lets start.

Performance is defined as power, which is total works over time taken, therefore

Performance, P = Work (W) / Time (T)

From Pareto Principle, we know that 80% of the works is done by 20% individuals in an organization.

Let assume that, the ratio of sohai in an organization is x, and we substitute these informations into the formula.

P = W / T
= 80% works done by 20% individuals and the remaining 20% works done by the remaining 80% individual
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
80% of the 20% individuals' time and 20% of the 80% individuals' time

P = 0.8/0.2x + 0.2/0.8x
-------------------
0.8*0.2x + 0.2*0.8x

P = (17/4x) / 0.32x
= 13.3/x^2

We know that there are seven days in a week, but due to that we all are human and we need rest, (even God rest on Sunday), therefore, the maximum working time we can have is 6 days per week.

Therefore,

6 = 13.3 / x^2
x = sqrt(13.3 / 6)
x = 1.5

Therefore, you need at least 1.5 ratio of sohai in an organization if you need to maintain the smoothness of a task. If the ratio is drop, more time is needed and causing delay in the completion of the task.

Hereby, Toh principle is proven to be truth and nothing but the truth.

My blog and me

When I start this blog, my intention is very simple, I want to share my thought with my friends and families, and at the same time, just want to practice my English. My girl complains my English, and I told my natural enemy, Mr. Toh, that my English is very bad and he said my English is suck. Well, please forgive a Chinese educated engineer’s writing. That is my limit and I am practicing, I hope one day I can at least write a lovely poem for my girl.

What I wrote most? I don’t really go to do the statistic. I believe, mostly are related to my works. I guess I’m a boring guy :). Initially there are some bloggers around me, but one by one they abandon their blog. Maybe they just lack of idea to write, or maybe they just can’t found the reason to continue their blog. Maybe too much pressure given by some individuals. Not everyone can accept critic, that what I’d learned.

So, what make me continue writing? Less and less reader is visiting this blog :) but I still continue writing. I don’t how I can last until today, it’s look like a miracle for me. My friend once told me that every blog must has a theme and because of theme, it’s become difficult to maintain, because once the idea exhausted, the blog will end. Maybe my blog don’t have any theme :).

My girl always receives the most firsthand information from my blog, because I always hope to share all my thought with her. I don’t really very good in talking and express my feeling, maybe I’m an engineer. My logic is dominant my emotion. Unfortunately, my English is also too poor to let my girl understand my thought. Sometime, she felts that I’m complaining this world. But I didn’t and I will not do that.

Just like having dinner in a restaurant, if I felt that the soup is not nice, I will said the soup is not nice, but I will finish it even it is not nice in my point of view. Am I complaining? Some people may think yes, you are complaining. But I’m not. I only speak out my opinion on that soup; it is a fact or statement which is true from my point of view.

Writing is always one of my habits although it is not my talent. It helps me to balance myself and I was calmed once I wrote it.

I apology to all the reader if I make you feel that I’m complaining this world, complaining peoples around me and complaining myself. Please believe me that, I’m not. I only told you something that in my opinion it’s true for me.

Just wish my wild horse can end his stupid single life soon with a lovely gf.

You know what you're talking or not?

In every project that I handle, I met quite some number of peoples. Some are expert, some are stupid, and some are “sing ka” (con man). I thanks god that so far those peoples that I deal with are quite normal, until recently I met some fucking ego idiots.

Lot of peoples likes to show off their capability in front of their bosses. So they like to talk a lot whenever their boss is there, whether the word comes out from their mouth is logic or not, they just don’t care and start to pluck from the sky and throw it out to show their “intelligent” and “hardworking-ness”.

When these peoples start to talk, the only action I can do is showing the shocking face and I don’t know how to answer those stupid questions which don’t need answer. There are many stupid real life examples that I can share you, and believe it or not, this is the first time I want to become as stupid as possible in order for me to follow their instructions.

1. In order to have “fantastic” control system, I have been asked to on and off the air-cond. unit installed in the manager room. The reason given is that the manager maybe already went back home and he forgot to off the air-cond.
You don’t actually need the control system, what you need is to employ a guy to fully responsible to on and off the air-cond unit for their bosses by pressing the switch in front of their manager room.

2. In order to have a nice look and feel, I have been instructed to take out all the relays from the relay panel. But how I going to split the signal between PLC and indicator light? And guess what, the given solution is to drive the indicator light from a PLC digital out O_o.
PLC is not an item for you to show off; it is a very important equipment to do the complex control sequence. A relay is not an ugly old component; it is a very important and useful component in simple and reliable hardwires logic.

3. Two management level guys stop the welding because they found out that the gap between two pieces of pipe is bigger than the welding rod diameter. The reason given is that the welder can’t weld properly with gap like this.
Bro, you know what you talking or not? If you need welding course I can introduce a cheap and quick welding training for you with my own cost.

Lot of time, people doesn’t realize that how irritating is their stupid question, argument and reason are. If you really want to challenge people’s work, please make sure you have all the proper knowledge and skill before you start fire. Don’t insult people’s intelligent because of your stupidity.

Human stupidity

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

Albert Einstein

I love this quote, it is simple, teasing and yet it is so true. I don't know why Einstein said this, but I believe he should be sicked when looking at those idiots that are ruin the world.

Once a while we heard some stupid stories about some stupid ideas, stupid actions, illogical statement from friend around us. Sometime we wonder how come these idiots exist in this world. They should, by all means, extinct from this world. However, when we zoom to a bigger screen, there are endless wars at every conner on the third planet from sun. I personally don't understand why people war, what are they looking for? For justice? For wealth? For living?

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

Albert Einstein

If Einstein knew his knowledge will be used to create atomic bomb, he will definitely wouldn't publish his papers.

When we laugh at people's stupidity, please look at ourself, are we a joke for others?

Thanks God it's Thursday again

It is my second week in this dusty desert, if you ask me how I feel, I will tell you, I want to go back to the Bolehland.

Basically, I start working from 4.30AM until 12.30PM to avoid the heat from the summer's sun. So the working hour is more or less same as Bolehland. Just I don't know the meal I took is breakfast or lunch or dinner. It is difficult to define in this situation. Anyway, that no the main reason I want to go back.

The weather is hot, well, I'm not all the time at site so I can't really feel the heat. Anyway, I can't denied the temperature, but I believe it still within my acceptable range. With this kind of temperature, you definitely can't bath in the afternoon. It is too hot to bath. So, I can only taking my bath after 7PM.

Then what make me want to go back?

Basically, there is nothing in this desert compare to Bolehland. Nothing is here except dust and more dust.

Talking to the client will just make you vomit. They like to pretend they are the greater than us by just pluck something from the sky and start to speech. Well, for me it is a stupid action that actually tell your opponent that you are stupid and you know nuts. Anyway, those people only care about how is the look, but they don't care or don't know what is the critical for the system. It is good for me since it is more easier for me to do my work, just I can't really stand their stupidity for asking something irrelevant and stupid. Engineer don't really care how is the look, we care about the functionality and reliability. So, better get a engineer boy friend, but don't get a engineer girl friend ;) Up to certain stage, we also like pretty look.

Taken this photo at 5AM, the sky are very dusty, that cause the sun look like a egg yolk.

Tomorrow is Friday and it is rest day and I can enjoy my day just to sleep on the sofa for the whole day.

The end of a legend

I believe the hottest news in town is the death of Michael Jackson, the king of pop. Personally, I'm not MJ fan, but I like most of his song. No doubt, he is a very talented artist although his personal life is a mess. Well, we might miss his song and also news. And we looking forward rise of another legend soon.

Anyway, nothing is eternal, except human stupidity.
RIP MJ (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009).

Though of the day

While browsing about the WEP and WPA security information, I read an IT blog wrote by bwilds , title "Why Hackers Discuss WEP & WPA Cracking". Although the blog is slightly old, blogged on 29/12/2006, but the question itself is very interesting.

A question by a reader, darthlaidher, wrote

"... if stealing internet makes you a person with no morals what does hacking and showing people or giving people advice on how to do it make you? ..."


Basically, I see this as a process of evolution for technology. It's began when a designer has created a system, then a hacker has tried to test the weakness of the system and publish his/her finding to share the knowledge. Then the designer update (evolve) their system to improve on the security (fitness) and the process repeats. However, the update process takes time, and in between this period, whether these informations will be used by a person to update to a more secure system or it is used by someone to hack the weak system is very much depend on the ethic of the technical reader who received the informations. And for other non-technical readers, they are either choose to acknowledge the system weakness or ignore it.

The reply by one of the reader, OmegaVector, wrote that,

Free speech is not only to protect your right to say something but ALSO your right to HEAR something and CHOOSE what you hear. If you want to listen the fear that propagates because of ignorance about testing security systems, then by all means, stay in the dark and be ready to have your information stolen because you chose to ignore the warnings that were telling you of the possibility of weaknesses in your security system.


Yes, fear is what people don't want to know. We fear others critic on our mistakes and weakness, therefore we choose to ignore or stop that by all means. Learn how to put the head in the earth like what ostrich does XD

One day maybe not enough for a person to improve their weak point, but without stepping it out, its will takes infinite time.

Microsoft Outlook high CPU problem - SOLVED!

Last few day, I start to notice my CPU usage intermittently go high to 50%. From the task manager, look like Outlook is unstable. I start searching solution around the world and tonne of methods tried and yet I can't manage to solve the problem.

After few days wars with this weird symptom, I give up and planned to create a new profile. Therefore, I export my RSS, contacts, rules and email accounts setting in order for me to import back to my new profile.

After the new profile created, everything back to normal, no more intermittent high CPU. So I start to create folders, setup my account and everything look good, until I import my contact and the weird symptom come back again >| What the F!

So I try to delete all my contact and the Outlook performance back to normal. So I switch back to my original profile and delete all the contact and everything back to normal.

I don't understand why such an expensive software can have this kind of failure. I should ask Microsoft to return my money back for solving their problem.

I hope this will help those having same problem like mine. Good luck to you.

Blogging again

Well, seriously I don't know what to blog for. Too much thing want to say but can't speech. Most of my blogger kaki stop blogging since few months ago. We used to have fun time blogging about our life, some stupid idea, criticize on company and works, ... now we all don't have the courage to do that. We don't know what happen if some people read our blog and showed it to someone who we had criticized.

A blog can be subjective and it can be objective. I personally is very subjective in blogging cause that is what I felt. Anyhow, one very importance thing in blogging is that you are the owner of the blog and it mean you have to responsible for what you had wrote. This situation become difficult when you wrote too much related to other people although their name not appear in the blog. So, invited type of blog is used to prevent unwelcome person. Sooner or later, it move to friendster or facebook kind of web application to share your feeling and the stress.

Most of the middle range white-collar worker facing lot of working pressures. Firstly they are educated, they believe in freedom and fairness. They are sandwiched between lower level worker and their boss. There are few ways to release these pressures. One of the way is drink and smoke alone or with their friend. I personally don't like this method.

The other way is say it or write it down and let their friends, family and colleagues share the burden, pressure, happiness, sadness, everything and at the same time share theirs problems and point of view also. Sharing is caring. I personally prefer this method, first of all, it reduce our stress and others; secondly, it wouldn't cause any bad effect like drinking and smoking which is not good for health.

From open blog, to invited blog and to social web application, we only need a place to healthily release our feeling, a personal place to write and talk. Somehow, this is not possible for some people. All their dissatisfaction about company, the management, the colleague which they blogged or wrote is used by so call "friend" to show it to the criticized person, to the management they have complaint. One by one, blog being closed, web application being canceled to make us speechless.

If you ask me what is different between friend and colleague, I will define friend as a person that you can talk, and colleague is a person who work (maybe not) with you. A friend share your problem, a colleague use your problem.

I don't know I will banned or warned or not if some one from my company read my blog. I just hope that these people return a piece of personal virtual space for me to share with my friends and family. I sincerely thank you for not making this an issue.

Don't take Gulfair if you want live longer

I got a ticket going back to Bahrain from Abu Dhabi on 1.15Pm today. Because don't want waste the driver time, I made decision to follow my colleagues, Mr. Huan and Wong, go to airport in the early morning 6AM.

So I went to the counter ask them whether I can change my flight to early flight or not and the counter say their system down and need to wait until the early flight open then only can check.

So I wait until the counter open and surprisingly, the 1.15PM flight canceled and they never inform me. So I was thinking I am quite lucky today. So I happily waiting for the flight.

After boarding, I'm so tired so I just take a nap. And after a while, I heard that the plane going to land. Look at my watch it is 15 minutes early than the scheduled landing time. Looking out the window I saw ADAC, first I was thinking maybe Abu Dhabi airport put advertisement at Bahrain airport. But sometime not right, I was flying back to Abu Dhabi again, what the f!

The captain just say due to safety reason he have to land. At the terminal, the staff never let you know what to do, what is the situation, all they do is ask you to go to lounge to take lunch and come back and wait. And I have been tortured for the whole day to get another flight to Bahrain at 6PM.

I don't know what to say except those f words that I remember.

If you want to go Bahrain or Europe, just use Ethihad or Emirate, their flight is newer and more safe to use. If I can vote, then the worst airline on earth I will choose the Gulfair. Just pissed with their service. Worst airline I ever used.

Corporate Strategies COW STORY

Got this joke from my girl, not sure who is the original author, but I believe it's from our kiasu neighbour. Enjoy it.

TRADITIONAL CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You sell one and bought a baby bull.
Nurse and feed it well;
They mate, your herd multiplies and the economy grows.
You invest & kept the gains into the country reserve, You sell them and everyone retire on the income.



AN AMERICAN CORPORATION
You have two cows..
You mortgage both of them to the bank & obtain investment for two more cows, Then re-mortgage the investment the four cows for eight cows and continue to do likewise, The financial market was flooding with mortgages & investments in cow's assets, No one knows where & who owned the original 2 cow's ......

Thanks God it's Thursday!

I seldom so excited for the weekend, but I think I started to love weekend.

Seeing those idiots and talk to those idiots really make me feel sick. I don't understand how their mind is working, totally unreasonable. I'm not sure it is because they suck in too much of duct that cause their brain malfunction.

Anyway, thanks God to let me survive until Thursday. I will appreciate every second I have in this weekend.

ハルフウェイ Halfway



Directed by Eriko Kitagawa with Shunji Iwai and Takeshi Kobayashi, a star grade combination, this is a movie to be waited.

Maybe you don’t know who is Eriko Kitagawa, but you definitely know these dramas Aishiteru to Itte Kure, Long Vacation, and Beautiful Life. She is a very talented director in producing romance drama.

My favorite director, writer, editor, producer and composer (it take some time to introduce) Shunji Iwai, since his last movie, rainbow song, I have been waiting for his new release. I still love his Love letter, Hana and Alice, and April story.

Halfway official website.

I hope Malaysia cinema will show this movie.

Summer is coming

I can feel the summer is on his way. The weather is so hot and humid, make me feel very uncomfortable. The electricity also increase :)

I can't say I love summer cause everyday is summer. The only different is a slightly windy summer and stuffy hot summer.

The heat remind me a nice drama, summer snow. I love Ryoko Hirosue. She is a very talented artist, but too bad she screwed up her career for her unhappy marriage. What a waste.



and her new drama, "愛なんていらねえよ、夏" Ai nan tei ra ne e yo, natsu (I don't need love during this summer)

I'm back

It have been 1 month since my last post. Lack of idea to write new blog.

I went to U.S. for about 3 weeks and I like New York. It's a very wonderful place to visit. But staying at New York is too luxury for me, cause their living cost is sky high like their buildings. If you got chance, you have to visit this wonderful city.

Other than this, my life is very plain, plain like R.O. water, no taste. I start to understand why my friend, Toh, stop updating his blog. Sometime, you can't tell whether is it deja-vu or not? Cause everyday it is repeating and repeating the same scene until you start questioning yourself that are you staying in the pass?

Anyway, like it or not, life must go on.

By the way, wishing Mr. Toh a happy birthday and I hope he can get his very first girl friend so his life can be more colourful.

Happy Valentine

Today is valentine, I know that, please not need remind me and please don't ask me what is my program.

Everyone that know me and my girl know that I'm not a romantic person. If you really want to know how not romantic am I, maybe I can described myself as "kayu".

First of all I want to apology to my girl that I didn't buy any gift or flowers for her. I hope she still happy when she see me. And for dinner, hmmm... can we discuss later?

About valentine, what is valentine in the eyes of a kayu engineer?

One word, commercial.

You see, because of this day, people selling flower with double or even triple of normal price. The dinner, gift, event promotion are also more expensive than normal price.

No offend that high demand create higher price. So, shopping on valentine is meaning spending more money for same material. Therefore, some people will celebrate valentine on valentine eve. Some may celebrate on the next day. So, my question is, what is the point that celebrating valentine when it is not celebrated on 14/2?

You can cheat yourself with lot of "valid" reason, but for me, "bro, you want me to spend few hundred meh? You think I print money one ah?".

I'm not say it is wrong to celebrate on eve, what I mean is that, isn't it too commercial?

For Chinese, there are few valentines. Anyone know that?

For month 1 day 15, which is also end of lunar new year, is a valentine. Did you purchase a flower for your love one or buy her candle light dinner?

On month 7 day 7, it is another valentine. Do you know that date?

Ok, you can bomb me or curse me for so not romantic and so kayu.





















If I can only show my love to you on valentine, I wish there are 365's 14th Feb. in a year.

email

My friend, Mr. Toh, ask me update my blog but don't talk about work. I try to, but I just feel missing something when I don't do that. Again, Proven I'm boring man and I got nothing to talk except work =( I hope my girl don't dump me.

Ok, I saw the movie "Just Follow Law" last few day when it's shown on the TV and I like the part about the email.



Everyday I receive almost 50-100 email and 99% of then is cc copy, which mean there two or more people talking and these peoples are so kiasi that they put some innocent people into the list either,

1. to become the witness, or
2. to become the victim

I don't know when is this culture started and believe me I hate that. But I got no choice to use that also, cause I'm also kiasi. Kiasi because someday someone will say "You got telling me about this issue? When? Got any record or not?". Trust me, without these black and white, you are death meat.

Anyway, I found out that, lot of people over use this tactic, or maybe I should say extremely kiasi.

I always telling those young engineers one thing, when I pass some info for you to work, please don't cc back these info to me cause you don't need to show me that you are working and for me, forward my info to other party DOESN'T mean you are WORKING. The only way to show me you are working is come back with result, not a cc email. I just hate people using this method to tell me they are working and at the end there is nothing coming back. What the F.

Anyway, I like to use email as another tools to buy time and also revenge. How? Just bomb that party with extremely huge size of attachments. All the email server will hang and everyone will suffer for downloading the junk info :)
Please don't use that on me, I'm a good guy :)

Anyway, happy emailling. And, please just come to me and ask for info, I don't like email.

Joanna & 王若琳


Times of Your Life sang by Joanna Wang, 2nd album, very nice vocal.

Lunar new year 2009

This year is a niu (cow) year, and today is 2nd day of the lunar new year. So what I did these few days?

Well, nothing much actually. First of all, I like to read about the astrology in the beginning of the year. If you ask me do I believe or not, I would say I only believe those are good and forget those are not good. It is simple, if you believe then you have it, if you don't then you wouldn't. Anyway, while you reading these astrology, basically, it is a reminder. It remind you take care you health, be careful of what you said, be careful while driving, etc.

So what astrology say about me? The fire snake. I quote this from Joey Yap web page.

It's a smooth year ahead for the Snake in terms of career and wealth, and you stand to receive recognition from your superiors. Those who own businesses will see a fare rise in profits. Don't put too much hope into gaining indirect wealth. In order to see any dollar signs this year, you'll have to put in more effort than expected at work. However, Snake people who own their own businesses will earn quite a fare bit of money and can see some profitable returns on their ventures.

Well, I hope it's a good year for me.

I'm not a psychologist, but what I saw is that, men are very weak in handling their life, that why we have something call government, king, leader, hero, horoscope, astrology, and please forgive me if you feel uncomfortable, religion.

I don't understand why 911 happen, I also don't understand why people killing each other using the name of God.

Million of man killed because of a word from a stupid sohai. Why we need to give our life because of a drunken man or maybe a psychologically illness idiot? Can you explain to me?

According to the statistic, the most popular book is about astrology. I think everyone want to become a millionaire without putting their effort out. They just hope putting something or moving something in their house can bring wealth and luck or maybe a million dollar will drop suddenly from sky.

I believe fung shui. Basically, fung shui talk about harmonic by studying the environment. If a house have good air circulation and calm environment, it will create health. And with good health, it create wealth and happiness. It is just simple.

In science we believe that the truth can be describe by simple rule and formula. If it's too complicated, it may not be true or it's only true for very specific condition. So please don't change your front door to back because of fung shui.

Ok, wish you all a happy new year.
