I am lost most of the time I ventured out the door. Really, I kid you not.
There are many cases over the years, but the one that get me chuckling until now was the one that happened in Singapore. (Think i had blogged abt it sometime ago, well....anyway...)
That happened quite a long time ago. I was accompanying some clients for Unicenter training and being very tired after whole days training, they elected to stay in their room. Me, being a curious cat, could not simply stay and lick my paws...so I bought some strawberries and grapes, put it in my bag, took the city map and went exploring.
That night, I went to the Riverside and let me tell you, it was an amazing adventure. The area was so interesting, the buildings were beautiful and I bought a number of gorgeous ties for the men in my life. I walked and explored both sides of the Riverside, under the moon and the streetlights.
Then, I wanted to go back to the hotel. That is when the problem struck. I was not really lost as in I do not know where I was. I DO know I am standing on Riverside. Issue was, on which side of the Riverside, is my hotel?
There I was, standing in the middle of the bridge that connects both sides of the river...looking at my map. I turned the map around and around, while chuckling madly. I imagined it was quite a sight. Some couples actually crossed the road to be as far as possible from the madly giggling me.
After some time, I closed the map...took a deep breath, choose a side and just walked. Luckily, that is the side where my hotel is located.
The moral of the story? When you are lost, just redah aja...kah kah kah.
Let me see, I had managed to get lost in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand...thank God I had my best friends that looked after my whereabouts while in Jakarta and Bandung. If not, I can add another country to my 'Lost' list.
My favourite phrase? I'm lost (while looking at people with round eyes and imitating Stitch's 'lost' expression).

Last Saturday, my and my loved ones went to the Jusco Taman Equine for some errand. There, the car keys of my loved one suddenly went bungee jumping down the toilet bowl. Sad to say, the bungee jumping was without any rope.
It were chaotic, everyone was wondering what to do. Since the maintenance person in charge at the Jusco was not available, the ladies at the information counter offered to seal the toilet until then. Not happy with the decision, we urged the Jusco to offer other alternatives. Then, came 2 heroes, En Tarmizi (the overall honchos that all Jusco employees respected) and En Zulkarami (one of the guard) came up with various strategies. Between them and with the help of another cleaner, Prakash..they managed to get the keys.
Thank you very much, our heroes for your extraordinary commitment to help the customers. I already loved Jusco, but now, we loved Jusco Taman Equine very very much.
To all my friends, I would urged you to NOT keep anything in your pockets when you go to heed nature's call.

The government is restarting a trend, we got some advertisement to advice people on the food portions and healthy habits. Those like stop smoking, exercise a lot, yadda, yadda, bla, bla....well you know...healthy stuffs.
The bee in my bonnet? The costs of healthy living.
How many of you do realise that healthy food are deng expensive?
Ok, some examples :
1) Common salad or organic salad? Of course the organic ones, but the organic salad costs extra 20-30%.
2) The ice-cream or some fruits? Both costs about the same and you get full by eating the ice-cream.
3) Full plate of rice or half plate of rice? Some shops here give RM1.50 for full and RM1.00 for half portion.
4) A white flour Gardenia or the whole wheat Gardenia? The white flour is RM2.10 and the whole wheat is RM3.00.
5) A nasi lemak costs RM1.00 (or RM1.20 now) and a toast set with 2 half boiled eggs costs RM2.40.
So you see, healthy living are really expensive. It can easily costs you extra 50% or more. With the current inflation, some of us might not be able to eat these healthier food.
A friend said that those healthy things we consume can extend our lifetime and thus bring us more benefits in the future.
My take? What the heck...enjoy your life, eat what you want and die while you are still beautiful. Who remembers the old auntie that used to lived behind your house and died last month? But everyone remembers Marilyn Monroe.

I had a talk with a loved one concerning the Planet X, which is the furtherst away planetoid from the sun in our solar system (as of now la). In a couple of years, we WILL find new stuffs out there (cue the soundtrack from Alien).
Well, back to my conversation....we really forgot the name of the planetoid tho I know that it is(was?? those Romans/Greeks are not here anymore) one of the Hades consorts. So, to remind all of us, the Planet X's name is Eris, the goddess of strife and discord. For me, it suits the planetoid since she did cause some discord within the scientific community with the planet (argh planetetoid...planetoid...) Pluto issue.
Now, the second question....is Eris = Nibiru?
Below, I have some linx regarding all these topics.
On Eris (the dwarf planet / planetoid)
On Nibiru :
On Mickey Mouse's dog.....er...no...our 'not anymore planet'.

Happy and sad
On a happy note...
Saw Madagascar 2. Really liked it, much more hilarious than the first
No spoilers would be given, but the story revolves around the main
I would give it 8 stars out of 10.
On a sad note...
Hatiku luka. Sedih guer. Terbelah dan parah. Cam nak nangis, tapi aku
Tetapi, sebelum keyakinan dan ketabahan itu datang...
Aku nak bertinggung, merintih, mumbling sendirian sambil menguis-nguis

Lebih kurang sebulan setengah, sampai la akhir tahun. Korang nyer azam/planning/road map tahun nih dah tersampai ker?
Di antara azam tahun baru (yang perlukan duit) yang aku slalu dengar dari kekawan aku :
1) Nak tukar keja sebab boss kerek/gaji tak cukup.
Kepada my frens, kalau azam/planning korang tak tersampai lagik, cepat2 la try to tunaikan. Bukan apa, ekonomi dunia dah start merudum, semua tpt dah kena inflasi...kalau korangnyer planning melibatkan duit yang banyak, so kemungkinan nanti kena KIV. Kan ker naya.

Aku ada satu citer sedih, terjadi kepada mak aku.
Last week, mak aku asik pening2...pegi to klinik, dokter sudah sound kata tekanan darah mak aku naik tinggi balek, so kena la start the 5 days vigil. Tapi, since the next day mak aku kena bertolak ke KL, so kena la sambung kat KL.
On Monday, mak aku pegi la ke Klinik Ibu-Ibu Mengandung Kerajaan yang kat Pantai Dalam, kawasan Apartment Pantai Indah. Ala, yang area Klinik Bistari and kedai Labung Jaya tuh.
Ada ker dokter and nurse kat situ leh cakap sebab mak aku orang luar, so tak leh tolong check tekanan darah dia. Susah nak masukkan dalam checklist la, tak leh nak kena masukkan dalam daftar la. Sedangkan mak aku dah confirmkan ngan klinik kerajaan yang kat Air Itam, Penang yang dia leh pegi mana-mana klinik kerajaan dan farmasi hanya untuk dapatkan bacaan tekanan darah secara percuma. Mak aku dah bawak kad yang dokter leh tulis jumlah tekanan tuh. Apa yang susahnya? Just check tekanan darah tak sampai seminit pun, then tulis atas kad tuh. Nak kata busy giler, memang la ramai orang tapi takder la sampai melimpah ruah.
Mak aku kecik hati giler, semua dokter and nurse kat situ Melayu...tapi tanak tolong makcik nih pun. Sedangkan klinik kerajaan yang kat Penang tuh ada semua bangsa, tapi takder masaalah untuk sesaper pun pegi buat urusan.
Tuh yang aku tak paham, orang Melayu mendajalkan orang Melayu sendiri...tapi asik nak depang dada dan bising pasal Ketuanan Melayu. Nih kes mak aku, makcik tua yang tanak ditolong oleh orang Melayu sendiri. Tak termasuk kes orang Pahang leh buat laporan polis pasal Georgetown nak tambah tulisan Cina dan India kat jalan-jalan. Apa masaalah diorang? Pasal ketuanan Melayu? Diorang punya lah duduk jauh dari Penang, aku wonder orang yang buat laporan polis tuh penah pegi Penang ker? Naper tak pegi Penang untuk buat laporan polis?
Cam kes nih, pasal apa dokter dan nurse Melayu tanak tolong mak aku yang just nak tau tekanan darah dia? Buat apa jadik dokter atau nurse kalau tak berkhidmat untuk orang yang sakit? Katalah mak aku pitam depan klinik tuh, sebab mak aku orang luar, dokter and nurse tak leh la selamatkan mak aku?
Hapa punya dokter dan nurse.

Aku dah amik spek mata aku. Paling mahal yang aku penah beli dalam seumur idup aku. Tapi, at least murah skets dari yang aku tanya kat F**** P**** yg kat Midveli tuh. Dia hantam RM860 tuh...lens saja dah RM638. Nak pensan aku.
Anyway kedai spekmata Maju Spectacles located at Kotaraya (tingkat bwah, area belakang ala-ala Mebenk) memang best. The price is reasonable and the people there are very professional. Aku siap dapat tunjuk-ajar on bentuk2 spek dan jenis2 lens. Dia spent 1 1/2 jam untuk bagi kaunseling dan check power mata untuk aku dan kawan aku. Sangat2 la puas hati. Harga spek aku? Overall RM550, lebih murah dari harga lens yang FP tuh nak jual kat aku...and the best part, they give me the same lens. Kukuku.
Semalam, masa pegi amik spek aku tuh, berjaya la gaks antar kasut sport aku tuh untuk dijahit. Asik dijeling ajer selama nih, apa taknyer...mulot ngalahkan boya ternganga. Tapi best mamat tuh buat, dia siap buat groove kat keliling tapak kasut aku sebelum jahit...supaya benang tak haus dan putus masa aku jogging (bila nyer aku nak joging? kekeke).
Also nak ucapkan thanx kepada one of my loved ones for all the goodies, dah janji tak tayang gambar, so kenot la. Loved the lot. Sempat test semalam, konpem tak buat di China sebab kaler dia tak leach out to the kopi. Gelak ala Kururu semasa plan Penjajahan Pekopon, KUKUKU.

Ok, last night is the last straw. I had it enough!!
They are having parties all over the place, and I am not invited.
Since last Sunday, I managed to get 3 minor infections, my eyes are still burning (at least the puffiness and the redness had gone down), my tongues are swollen, my nostrils are playing 'let's get blocked' alternately, I have throbbing headaches a couple of times per day, my left knee got a huge bruise which is still painful even after 5 days, and the last one...fever last night.
Not to say that I got a few list on various servers that I need to do and a list of nearly 20 servers with capacity problems that I need to solve.
Now, I am really reconsidering doing the 'minor' operations that the doctor suggested previously. Only my traumatized childhood prevented me from going over and make that decision...And my fear of pain...And of blood....And of the needles...And of the scalpel......Now, you see how traumatized my childhood was?
If someone ask me about another listing on the servers, I am going to voodoo them. Don't think I do not know how, I watched Lilo & Stitch.
Was the virus watching The Invasion (starred by Nicole Kidman and the alternate universe James Bond, Daniel Craig) with me last week? I think so, they watched it and thinking, 'Hey, let's have some fun with the fat lady'. And they are having parties since then, I know...I felt it. Just hope this is not an alien virus which propagation is thru the host's vomit. Yearrkkhh! And that is the last of the lastest last straw.

Just a little something to make the middle of the week goes a bit faster. Taken from somewhere that I forgot.
A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, 'What does 'love' mean?'

A loved one gave a Mokona to me last week....Soel in fact. Thank you very much.
Now to get Larg. Of course, the addition of Soel changes the interior of my car. Now, it have a cute creature, giving it a hint of girlylike. I hope after this, there are no more jokes that the car belongs to a guy.
If you are wondering what in the world is Soel, Larg and Mokona....check the linx below.
Now to get a Stitch in the car. I saw the pix, but where in h*** is the actual one?

After nearly a year of planning for my first steak, a friend of mine had suffered enough and dragged me to Tony Roma @ The Garden, Midvalley.
We had the Fried Mushroom for starters and being very hungry, both of us ordered steaks. Hehehe.
My friend, being a pro at eating @ Tony Roma, asked for the full sauces set...it comes with 4 bottles with different flavours. You can mix these up and come up with your own sauces.
While waiting, we were served with bread and some sort of sauce. Quite nice, the bread is very soft and tasty.
Then the fried mushroom with it's sauce. However, I prefer to dip it with a bit of lemon juice and my own concoction of Tony Roma's sauces mixture.
After that, came the steaks. I cannot remember the name, but mine comes with a bit of cut pineapples (sort of salad) on top. The portions are a bit small (for a big appetite like me). I asked for well done, and the steak is just perfect. I had Coleslaw and baked potato as the sidedishes. The Coleslaw is ordinary but the baked potato is quite nice.
I had freeflow Ice Lemon Tea, but only managed to drink a glass since the glass is quite large.
Overall, I think the ambience for the restaurant is nice and the waiters are very attentive. The food is quite good and the price is erhm...reasonable? (around RM170 for a starter and 2 steaks).
Due to the price, not usually my kind of hangout but once in a blue moon, is ok la.
Thank you very much to my friend for accompanying me in this grand adventure.
P/S : By the way, the Tony Roma is Malaysia is not certified halal due to they are serving alcohol in the premises..however all the food are halal since they took the chicken and the beef from halal suppliers. Being that, they do not serve porks here, so for those that wanted the famous Tony Roma's Baby Ribs, you need to go to Singapore for that.
The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
