How's your day today

Since I was small, my parents put aside some cash and save it in one of government’s unit trust account under my name. The money is saved for my future. I still remember my mother’s exact words,”Duit tu simpan untuk Abang pergi study kat overseas”. Then I asked her,”What if I get a scholarship for my studies?”. Mummy answered,”Enjoy laa duit tu”. Those words did motivate me to study very hard and obtain a scholarship so that I can enjoy the goldmine my parents built for me.

As soon as I entered university, my parents stopped pouring money into that study foundation of mine. Fair enough since I got a scholarship from a “merintis kemungkinan” company and they have 2 more children to go through with. Up to date the fund size is big enough to settle all my debts. Clear all my credit cards etc. But I don’t just spend the money as I like even though I have a license to just do it. I save the money for rainy days in my life.

25 years after the fund was created, it has been a monsoon season in my life. It seems that the only sunny days in my life is the day that I got my paycheck. The day after that, rain start pouring everyday without fail. So why don’t I just use up the fund to clear the clouds in my life? Somehow the effort that my parents put to build that fund has injected the sense of guilt in me. Being the eldest in the family, I was there when my dad was earning less than what I earn when I first started working and that time he can still support a family of four. I was there when my dad took up a bank loan from KUBB just to buy a personal computer for us where nowadays people change their computer like changing their car’s engine oil.

So when the rain was fighting cats and cows, it leaves me with no choice but to grab my shovel and dig something out of the gold mine. My heart shatters into pieces every time I sign the red form and place my left thumb onto the black ink to withdraw money from that account. Wifey knows about this too well when I buy RM2.50 double cheeseburger for lunch instead of a Big Mac, ask her to make her own tiramisu instead of buying it and etc. But I still keep count on how much I’ve withdrawn from that account because I promised myself that one day I’ll restore the gold mine back to its original condition.

Once a year (which is now), that particular account will freeze all the transactions in and out for them to distribute the bonus and dividend. The freezing period would last for about 2-3 weeks. This year they declared the bonus + dividend of 9 percent. A bit lower than last year but no point of complaining since the value has been decreasing for the past few years.

To shorten this entry, I took a brave decision two days ago to purchase e-gold using what is left in my daily savings account. During my errands to the banks, I was consoling myself that everything is going to be fine. I paid all the bills, buy stuffs that I should buy this month and serviced my car. After I settled all my banking, I went to the workshop just to find out why the air-cond is not working as usual. Thought it was something minor such as “gas habis”, but the foreman gave me a Christmas surprise by saying, ”Compressor rosak!”.

That time I just can quote Homer Simpson, “Dohhppp!”

The Value of A Certificate

Last 2 years I took an exam for a professional certificate course named Cisco Certified Network Associate and scored the paper with flying colours of bennetton. Since my company is using Cisco products almost throughout their network, I thought people who owns the certificate owns great powers. And as Spiderman's uncle said,"Great Powers Comes With Great Responsibilities" I thought I would be a very busy guy after submitting the photostat copy of the cert to our HR department. Well I was hoping that the "great responsibilities" will in turn give me a "greater paycheck".

Stupid me, I was working for the wrong company. The company which do not know the value of the people who have the certs. The only value that they saw was to attach the copy of the certs into Attachment D or E in tender documents for them to submit to the customers. Its like claiming to the customers,"We have 10 CCNAs in the company and a few CCNPs and they are now sitting at the office surfing the internet". Stupid fools!

Last week after two years obtaining the cert, the company organized lunch to "appreciate" these peoples with great powers in the company. So today I'm a proud owner of a 128MB thumb drive which the customers, bosses and their ass kissers got it for free. Now Im soooo motivated to upgrade myself to become a CCNP. Haha!

X-Game Challenge

The games were futsal (the pronunciation is futsoll), paintball and go-kart. My name was registered in futsal and paintball. Rumet in futsal??? Yeah, they just put in my name just to fill in the blank spaces in the registration form.

I was the organizer for futsal and I can tell you this.. women players suck! We called them up 5 minutes before their game to make sure they are ready when the time comes but being the creature from mars (or is it venus?), they only start to find their team members when the court is empty, and when the organizer start shouting calling their names. There's this one time when this so-called "star player" came in cat walking while we struggled to look for her. Damn you! I was very happy 3 minutes after that because she passed out and could not continue to play. Thank God! Her team even got last place in the league at the end of the tournament. So much of having a "star player" in the team huh? Haha..

Next game.. paintball. Well I think I deserved to play this game with all the supporting military backgrounds written in my resume and all. Did I tell you guys that I was the squadron leader for the mock war in Sg. Tua in 1996. We were in Form 4, and during the mid year camp I led my squad to climb up a steep hill to practice our war formation. After the "war" everybody were damn angry and told me, " Why didn't you just ask us to go down the hill??? It would be much easier stupid!!".

Well this time, my team has Raja Azlan as our team leader. So I imagined the war as in the movie where the warriors fought for their King and country. "Its an honour to serve you, My Lord". Hehe. This time the King ordered me to climb the steep hill. Haha,"What goes around, comes around" huh? After a few games of futsal, my thighs were already shouting,"Stupid fooool!!!, You're not fit to play x-games!!!". And this paintball game really tested my agility. In the end, I'm proud enough to be able to claim that I collected a flag in 3 games out of 4. In the last game my body just told me,"If you keep on fighting, we'll just give up on you". Well I wouldn't want the futsal "star player" to laugh at me when I collapse right?

By the time go-kart starts, I just lost interest in the whole event. It was just too long and wifey already went back home. Pity her and baby, I made them wait for me so that they can witness how macho I am holding a paint marker. That night, my thighs hurt like hell. I cant bend my knees, cant keep my legs straight. Can imagine how painful it was? I couldn't sleep!! Haha.. who am I kidding!

On Monday, I can say half of the total staffs called in MC. The colleague sitting in front of me even got a jab right on the ass for being too sick! Haha..

On Tuesday, the Building Management decided to have a fire drill! Imagine that we have to climb down 31 floors to get to the assembly area with legs that can barely stand up straight?????

Luckily I was outstation in Kuantan that day! Haha

Modernmum and Baby Fair

With about 3 months to go, wifey need to get some need new outfits to replace the tight shirt and pants. Apparently these maternity apparel shops are charging a normal pair of pants RM160 which we can buy at "normal" shops for less than RM100. Why? They claim that their pants are strecthable, easy to the tummy, adjustable bla bla bla. So how am I supposed to afford to buy those "costumes" without burning a hole to my pocket? Christmas Mega Sale!!! But wait, wifey found something better - Modernmum and Baby Fair! So we thought.

That Friday I kept myself free from 5.30pm onwards. No extended meetings, no team discussions, no ping-pong, no FIFA... all my time, love and care dedicated to wifey and baby. 5.30pm we took off to Midvalley Megamall. Head to the 3rd floor at the MVEC and to my surprise there are two "chicks" at the entrance giving out brochures. What the hell? Is this a baby fair or a credit card promotion or handphones promotion or health club promotion???

It was a disappoinment that these slimming centers and beauty centers are taking advantage of this "Modernmum" fair to promote their packages. Hardly any clothes for the mother. There are some booths promoting breast pumps, nipples etc but we are not looking for those yet.

With not much options left, we went to the real "Modernmom" to check out their Christmas Sale. Nothing caught wifey's heart there so we checked out the other maternity outlet - Mother's Club. Here the choices of long sleeve shirts are more compared with the previous outlet. So wifey spent 2 hours trying out I dunno how many shirts and pants there.

After swiping my precious gold card, I went to collect our car at Cars. We sent it for polish + wax which I tricked wifey to pay for it. Hehe. No lah... there's offer for her credit card. As for mine, for spending more than RM200 at Mid Valley using Master Card, I'm entitled for a Christmas Gift lucky draw. They really do spend a lot for this celebtration you know. They set up MV with all these white stages with christmas tree covered with white stuff to simulate real snow and all. So for those of you who haven't been to places that snow, go to MV and snap a few pictures and you know wht to do after that >:).

As for my lucky draw, I got 4 pieces of coasters! So this Christmas my dining table wont be wet with dripping water from my glass.

Review of The Northam

As we reach the hotel, one guy with full white bush jacket approached the car to get our bags. The bellboy was a nice thin guy wearing spectacles. I pressume he is shortsighted. He escorted wifey to check in as I went to park the car.

When I arrive at the lobby, wifey was already settled down at the lounge waiting for our welcome drinks. Unlike some other hotels which serve "fruit punch" to welcome their guests, The Northam put up sparkling grape juice served in chilled glass to say "Hi" to their guests. Wifey was so hooked up to the drink that she asked the reception what was the brand of the sparkling juice that they served. Unfortunately we cant get Euromax Sparkling Juice at Carrefour.

After the drinks, we head up to suite 2507. Number 7 has been so attached to our honeymoons. At The Komandoo, Maldives we got room Manta 7. I can't remember the room number at Bali but since you guys have no idea what was the number, I'll say it was room 207.

As we enter the room, on the left there's a small table with mirror for us to put our keys, wallet, wrist watch and etc. The mirror is for us to look at ourself on our way out. The Northam wouldn't want their guests to look ugly coming out from their hotel, would they? On the right as we enter is the guest's guest toilet. No, it wasn't a typo. The toilet is for the guest of the guest to use. Not for me and wifey to use. But for our guest. Get it?

Next, living room. The living room was equiped with a sofa, television set with astro channels, hot water kettle with complimentary coffee and tea, minibar and working desk with fax machine and broadband internet port. Fax machine?!! What for? Well, The Northam is actually a business suite. So fax machine is essential for businessmen. As simple as that.

Businesswomen cant operate this machine. Too many buttons. Haha!

The bedroom is so adoreable. Reason number 1 : They have another tv set with astro channels in it. Reason number 2: The bed is big. Bigger than a queen size bed. Reason why is its actually two single beds combined together for lovers like me and wifey. Usually combined beds are uncomfortable due to the gap in the middle but this is a suite my friend; that problem has been taken care of without wifey even thought of complaining.

If all these have not entice you yet to go and call this hotel and book a suite for your next holiday, let me tell you that this hotel is earth friendly. Instead of providing soaps full of sulfate, river polluting foaming agent and etc, they gave us vegetable soap. How more organic can you be? Using this soap is like scrubbing your body with carrots + cucumber + bean sprouts.

Did I tell you that you can view the bedroom through the bathroom? And the other way round!!!! So I can watch tv while scratching my butt and have a peek at my naked wifey taking a bath in the bathroom. Can a man's life be more luxurious than this?? Haha..

A room without a jacuzzi would not comply my definition of a suite. Not to forget double wash basins (His and Hers). Let me tell you that a jacuzzi is essential for honeymooners. Eventhough Im unlikely to make love with my pregnant wife in it, the mood set by the sound of dripping water and bubbly foam is very sensuous. It really rejuvenates your tired bodies.

To conclude my review, I would like to touch a bit on the breakfast. Superb variety of buffet lines for their breakfast but wifey and I think that paying RM23 for an extra breakfast is not worth it. After all with a room this great, its hard to wake up before 10.30am (breakfast ends this time).

The spa is wonderful. I took the Oriental Massage which incorporates Thai Massage + Shiatsu + Swedish. The masseuse is well trained and really really strong. I really recommend this massage. For 50 minutes treatment, I think its a RM90 well spent.

Room service was good. The price shown in the menu is nett price ladies. No ++ incurred. The cooking was so-so but what do you expect from room service foods??!!!


Room: 17.5 / 10
Service: 9 / 10
Parking: 5 / 10 (There's no elevator from the carpark to the lobby)
Food: 8 /10
Spa: 10 / 10

Final conclusion: Read the comment by wifey ok?!

Happy 1st Anniversary To Me!

It has been a year since I said, "Aku terima nikah Nurulhuda binti Qamaruz Zaman dengan mas kahwinnya 80 ringgit tunaiii". A year has passed but I bet most of you still remember how fast and furious the line went. Haha. But that couldn't beat Ceng's lucky number 5 right guys?

So how was it like to sleep together every night? To see each others' faces 24 hours day and night everyday. I do mean 24 hours since we work at the same place and my desk is next to hers. My answer is: It was great!! I wouldn't want to miss it at all. It never occur to my mind that I want to find a new job so that I can be away from my love for a few hours a day. And now wifey is carrying my child with her, it felt so good to be next to her every single minute.

Am I a good husband for the past one year? Well to compare me with a wife beater, lelaki panas baran and all, I can be considered as a great husband. Financial wise, I couldn't provide her with luxury lifestyle but we never starve or beg for food. We never had to skip meals. Religion wise, Im a bit on the below par level. I didnt have much knowledge to guide her to become better Muslim. But I didnt encourage her to take booze, take off her veil and eat pig though. Am I a good lover? Well wifey didnt ask for a dildo as her anniversary present. So I think Im good. Haha..

So to celebrate this moment, wifey check out The Northam in Penang. Isn't that cute? The wife belanja for the anniversary trip. It has been a while since we go for a holiday. This is due to money constraint.. duhh! But we think that one year being with each other as husband and wife qualifies us to spend a bit lahh..

Next Entry: Review of The Northam.

You All Sucks!

I have mixed feelings when I was writing this entry. This entry is supposed to correspond to the previous entry regarding the pot luck dinner. The mixed feelings is because I skipped blogging for a day and by today some other things have happened and contradicts my feelings regarding the pot luck.

Come to think of it, I don't wanna blog about this topic lah. The main point is, you guys sucks. Whoever affiliated with the guy that we were dicussing about in the previous entries sucks! You guys and your filthy secrets... damned you guys! I was a fool pretending everything was a hush-hush thingy while actually everybody knows about everything except me! F**k you all!!!!!!

Wifey and I are celebrating our 1st year wedding anniversary tomorrow (27-11-2005). It has been a year huh? We'll be heading to Penang to celebrate this joyous moment. I had my hair done and all set for a lot of sex I tell you! So you suckers can keep your fucking secrets and rot in KL!

See you guys Thursday and dont forget to do the boxes!

Last Minute Attempt

In two days time, the four of us will gather around the snooker table for one special ritual. The occasion seldom comes by. Its an occasion where we would console our last single and available buddy. He's so desperately trying to be straight no matter how many times we tried to sway him that he is not. So during this occasion, we will give him a break from all those crap and try to give him all the support he need.

How supportive we are? During the game, we'll try our best to let him win. You know how hard is it to let a loser to win a game? Damn hard I tell you. Furthermore the loser is in his off form! He might not be able to differentiate the colours of the balls he's hitting.

Why does this buddy need consoling in the first place? Well one of the reason is peer preasure. As I told you before, he's our last single and available buddy. So this ritual is done everytime he felt heartbroken. Usually he's heartbroken everytime things do not work out with girls. When did he get involve with girls? When one of us got married. He'll hook up with some girl, usually the best friend to our wives. So during the ritual, we would play the game with the honour to the girl. We would say the name of the girl out loud and hope the ball would hit the hole!

This time around, he felt for my wife's best friend. It has been about two weeks already and in two days time he'll be heartbroken again. How can I be so sure? Well, I have an invitation card as my supporting document for that statement. Usually people would give up at situations like this but my friend here still has the effort to organize a pot luck dinner tonight at his place. For sure that girl is invited. I salute him for that, well actually its more than saluting. I do hope that he succeed in his attempt this time. I'll be very happy for him if he succeed. Eventhough I'll miss the snooker games and chances to call him gay..

Good Luck You GAY!!!

Opportunity vs. Gamble

Besides trying to prove something, I would like to get to your attention on the two words above. Opportunity and gamble. What's the difference between those two nowadays? According to my lovely English expert wifey analogy, Opportunity is Good, Gambling is Bad and Taking Chances is in The Middle.

For me its all the same. Let say there's a new housing project being launch at a very strategic area. Most investors will see it as an opportunity but the problem is, the project is run by a blacklisted developer company. The developer is so bad so that it is like a gamble for the investor to invest in that project. By taking chances, is the developer gambling? Or is he taking chances on an opportunity?

There's a rule of thumb that goes, " If you dont know the outcome, then its considered as gambling". Then is the share market is a public casino? Is love a gambling game? We don't know what's the outcome when we approach someone, do we?. Well I have a friend who felt in love which we can't consider it as gambling. He knows that he won't get the girl that he's flirting with but he still go for it. Well if it's not gambling then is it an opportunity? He would love to think it that way though.

Recently I watched the programme Las Vegas which in one of the episode there's one guy that is paid to gamble at Las Vegas's casino. He was sponsored due to his experience in winning games on the online casinos. But in the real casino, he lost. There's more to gambling than just taking chances on the cards or the dices. So can I consider the online casinos as an opportunity?

I am gonna continue researching on this topic but in the mean time please give your comments and don't forget the small boxes above this article has it purposes. Do your part guys!

p/s: To the guy who I mentioned about taking opportunity in his love life, to me you are taking chances but to my wifey, you are gambling with your own heart. Anyway, take care dude!

I blog for a living now!

In case you havent notice the adverts above, yes Ive signed up for Google AdSense. The best part is my blog was approved after one try! Hoooyehhhh!!! Unlike my officemate Ephol, he failed twice already on getting the approval. Apparently you have to blog in English for your blog to be accepted.

So guys, don't feel shy to click on the ads above. I'll treat you guys for a round of teh tarik when I get the first payment. Surely I'll post an entry when I get the payment, so dont forget to claim the treat from me okay?

So do I see this AdSense will change my financial status? Maybe. Will I become a spammer by leaving traces of my blog at other peoples' blogs so that they visit my blog and hopefully they accidentally click on the ads? I dont think so, but theres possibilities. Will I become like someone who leaves message at peoples' shoutboxes and scream "link! link! link!"? I wont let myself be that low. Will I blog more often? Yes, I hope!!

There are a few blogs which I never miss visiting everyday because I think they write interesting articles everyday. And I really mean everyday! Without fail! I think it'll take a few years for me to become someone like that. Hopefully the AdSense will be the motivating factor. Not to forget wifey and the baby on the way will always be my drive to achieve more in life! Thank God I have them around with me today :)

Azril in the Matrix

In the movie Matrix, Mr. Anderson is a computer programmer which is considered as nerd in the real world. However in the Matrix he is the powerful One with the name Neo that can fight with hundred of thousands Agents and he can even fly. As for Azril, he is loser in the real world and even a sorer loser in the Matrix where he is refered as Rumet. He is so loser so that people dont bother to differentiate between Azril and Rumet that everybody call him Rumet in both worlds.

Today Rumet discovered that he is taken more seriously in the Matrix compared to the Rumet in the real world. He realises that people tend to give more attentions and feedbacks to him there. More comments on his fotopage and blog, he even get remarks on what he wrote in his blog/fotopage in the real world. People wont talk to Azril if there's no update on his blog or fotopage. There's one time where people even banked in money into Rumet's account after reading his pathetic entry in his blog. That did tarnish his ego as a man but come to think of it, how much of a man is left with him anymore? He's practically begging for money in the cyberspace that people somehow fall for it and give him some.

Back to the man thing, once he post an entry about his small dick. Everybody remembers it till today. Maybe for some people, the size of that thingy is the measure of manliness. Surprisingly they really take that entry seriously. If in the real world Rumet were to say something like that, people will laugh and take it as a joke. In this cyberworld, whatever Rumet writes it means business. He once told the cyberworld that he has no work to do at the office except surfing the net. Well today Rumet has a bit of work to do but still people thinks he is surfing like nobody business.

Now lets get to a higher level of blogging. Expression of feelings. In his blog and fotopage, Rumet is a person who adores his wifey. There's no single entry where he missed to mention about his wifey. How cute she is, how he loves spending time with her, how much he loves her and et cetera. In the real world, Rumet is still the same person who loves his wifey, who cares for the baby the wifey is carrying and still thinks that wifey is cute. Now do people take that statement seriously or not, Rumet is still wondering. Someone did say, "Some things are better left unsaid". Should Rumet stop expressing his feelings in the cyberworld where he is taken seriously? Should Rumet blog fictionally where every entry is a fake made up stories? He's so fucked up right now!

You Are Not A Small Boy Anymore

My family had a Raya open house today at Kelana Jaya. Last year we didn't have it due to the busy-ness of the preparation of my wedding. So this year Mummy and Daddy decided to call up our relatives and close friends for brunch. Zarina invited her friends, Rizals' friends came and me... I didnt get to invite any of my friends. I didnt ask them whether I can invite or not, but usually it was offered to me. Last two years I even get the privillege to have my own open house where I invited all my friends and officemates.

Its not that I terase ke merajuk ke... pelik je la skit. After giving it a few thoughts, I figure out that Im old enough to hold my own open house. Im not living with my parents anymore, hence the topic. Whether should I have a open house this year, the answer is obviously NO! The place that Im staying now cant accomodate more than 10 people in one sitting. Well the truth is I cant even pay for proper meal nowadays. Sengkek gileeeee beb! Bagi alasan rumah tak muat orang nak masuk konon... hehehe.

Well sorry guys, no luck this year. No the usual satay, durian, nasi bukhara and etc. One day I'll make a point to invite all of you to my place for makan-makan. Hopefully before the wifey deliveres laaa... Anyway if you wanna come to the house for raya, please do give us a call. Wifey would be glad to cook for you. For the moment, the choices are mee hailam or spegetthi alfredo le blue. Other than that have to ask her lah whether resepi ada dalam kitab ke tak! :) Posted by Picasa

A Dirty Shame

Its time for the anual obligatory Fast Breaking Celebration for the Hoya-Hoyaians. A bit different from the past, we didnt queue at the infamous Chicken Hertz this year. Instead we filled up Esah's house @ Shang Villa Kelana Jaya for a POT Luck celebration.

Well, almost all turned up except the usual absentees like Dib and Syaz! Blagak laa korang! Nak bukak pose ngan family la apa la.. poorahhhhh!!! (Kutuk je derang.. bukan derang baca pon blog ni!hehe) Tapai pon decided not to come since there's a more happenning event being held the same day by the SDARians. Like the famous saying by men - "Air dah naik kepala", Tapai told me, "It has been a while since my ass got spanked". I told him, "Ala... zaki ade... tak silap aku Jasmy pon ade, paling busuk pon Gorgom bule tolong!". Tapai insisted on going to the SDAR event by saying,"Derang tak best aaa!". Suke ati ko la Tapai!!

Maka berbukalah kita beramai-ramai dengan Nasi Goreng Istemewa Esah, Murtabak Beraneka Zaki, Ayam Ayamas Lin & Farul, Daging Telur Bistik Yat yang tade telur, Agar2 Konyaku Waifi, Sate Pengantin Kajang Mizie dan sebagainya. As usual Gorgom failed to fulfil his KPI in bringing Vanilla Coke. He brought Pepsi Tarik instead. Punz brought the most lavish food that day - Nasi Beriyani Gam! Tapi yang slack nye... die bawak nasi jer la.. lauk tak bawak :))

While having the usual chit-chat (more of a kutuk-mengutuk session led by Cipok), Arib played his favourite movie this year - "A Dirty Shame". He even recommended this movie to Tn. Hj. Ayil. Punya laa best die kate! What the hell??!!! Anyhow... Farul did enjoy Salma Blair's body in that movie.

Ceng and Mizie took this opportunity to pass their wedding invitations. Both of them are getting married the weekend right after Raya. To Along and Ida, Goodluck to both of you! Muahaha

Since there's nothing much that we can do, the guys popped out the idea of snooker...DUHH!! Tade game lain ke nak main? I cant elaborate much on that event since I didnt join. Who else tak join? AJON tak boleh join!! Dali tak kasik!! Muahahahhaha... blom kawin dah kene ...

ALL and all, I think the celebration was just nice. It almost didnt come to reality due to lack response from the hoya-hoyaians initially. My initial idea was for us to celebrate at any hotel and grab the opportunity of the Ramadhan Buffet. It was rejected since somebody would want to bukak puasa as a mukmin. Damn you all buffet goers! Thanks to the host (Esah and Ayil), Farul as the Menu Coordinator cum Photographer and lastly to you all for attending. Posted by Picasa

I can surf through my handphone u know!

Haha! And for free mind you!! I spent the whole evening yesterday to figure out how to get my Nokia 6600 connected to the web without using GPRS. Of course 3G is out of the question lah kan? So by the power of the doctor bestowed to me by giving a MC, I did a research on how to get it done (macam sial kan ayat?).

The configurations are quite complicated. U have to set up a few things at the PC and a few tweaks to the phone. Siap kene guna "netsh" command kat komputer. Edit script kat phone... configure incoming connection through bluetooth dongle... bla bla bla. I felt like the 4 years spent doing my degree in Computer Engineering has benefitted me (i missed Mr. Shabiul) this time. Im sure u laymen & laywomen can't figure out how to do it! Muahaha..

Ass kissing paragraph starts here..
The thing is I started on my journey to do the configurations since 3pm yesterday. Punya lah complicated.. lepas bukak pose pon blom boleh connect, until... Wifey came back home from her bukak puasa at Palace of Golden Horses at around 9pm plus. Why didnt I join her? I wasnt invited! U see, wifey is an important person in the company. She design network diagrams, propose network design, deliver network requirements and etc. Unlike me.. the company pays me for finishing up their resources. So the bukak puasa event is too much for them to waste on me. So while wifey was telling me how hungry she was since die tak lalu nak makan, I continue on configuring the phone. I Eventhough I wasnt concentrating much on what she says but Im quite sure I remebered her saying, " I makan oyster, roti ngan soup, kuih kuih, daging panggang potong-potong etc". Itu ke tak lalu makan? I had porridge with kerabu kerang je for dinner!! Out of the sudden, I can connect to the web using my lovely birthday present Nokia 6600! Hurrayyyy.. U see? The saying,"Behind a successful man lies a caring,loving,sweet and adourable wifey" is true. Berkat isteri tu penting. The bearer of our future generations. Without her, I cant have anybody to carry my family name - Azril (stupid Joey!).

Im an extra happy person last nite. Im always happy to have wifey to sleep with me every nite. But for me to be able to do something knowledgeable (i know some people can do it in a few minutes) means a lot to me nowadays. A routine life as a lecturer is much better than a routine life as a professional internet content reviewer. (Someone please write a book and quote that line and give credit to me :)) Posted by Picasa

Right On The Spot

Told ya not to go snooker & karaoke during Ramadhan! But nooo, we have to go tonite. Perfect timing, meant to be bla bla bla. Tgk apa sudah jadi? Three of the sinful creatures; Rumet, Ceng and Tapai called in MC yesterday (day after the bachelor party). Its like the God wanna show us, for this sin u'll get the punishment right away. As for me, today pon tak masuk opis. SMS bos cakap demam lagi. Dah lah semalam escape meeting unit, escape outstation pegi Changkat Jering, hari ni MC lagi!

The worst part is, I could not continue to fast yesterday and today. The doctor said drink lots of water continuosly. Kalau tak hilang suara! I caught this very bad sore throat. I dun think its so much due to the karaoke since I dun have problem in singing high notes before. Setakat nak naik 5-6 octave lagi tinggi tu no hal laaa... BTW what is octave? I suspected the smoke in the snooker room that attacked me. Dah la kalah snooker... sakit tekak plak tu.. retire la camnie!

The weird part is Ayil.... apsal die tak MC? Apsal die tak sakit... a few reasons i think. First maybe its because he has Marisa to take care of, kalau die sakit kesian kat Esah. Second maybe he did a good deed to loan RM0.1K to Ceng that made him the good guy among us. Last and the most logical explaination is that maybe he has this protective layer called "Haji" that made him through.

Pengajarannya ialah... kalau nak buat jahat bulan pose... pegi haji dulu!!!! Posted by Picasa

Ceng's Bachelor Party

Ceng dah nak kawin???!!!! Yerps... lebih kurang lagi 2 minggu je lagi Tapai akan keseorangan. So seperti biasa, sebagai kawan-kawan sejati kami mengadakan "Bachelor's Party" untuk Ceng. Kisahnya bermula dimana QZ amik EL, Tapai MC, Esah buka puasa dengan geng-gengnya dan the best part is..... Along balik Tangkak!!!! HOOORRRAAAAYYYY. This is the perfect timing bak kata Ayil. It is meant to be bak kata Rumet.

Venue kali ini.... Amcorp Mall. Kenapa Amcorp Mall? Its the best hangout area for our kind of party. Ada snooker, McD and the most important attraction... KARAOKE!!!! So Ayil dan Ceng menumpang VIOS baru Rumet untuk ke Amcorp Mall disamping Tapai drive sendiri from rumah dia.

The deal is... Ceng belanja karaoke, sape kalah snooker belanja.. sape nak bukak pose bayar sendiri! Setibanya kami ke Amcorp Mall Ceng telah mengisytiharkan taktik kotor beliau, "Aku tertinggal wallet dalam keter aku la". Demm! Ayil sebagai Pemenang Anugerah Kristal telah loan RM0.1K kepada beliau untuk meneruskan party ini.

1st activity.... snooker! Kiterang berjaya menamatkan 2 game/frame dalam masa 40 minit! What an improvement huh?? Tapi sebenarnya Ayil sorang je yang masukkan bola. Lagi 3 org tu bagi cukup korum je! But then, being 3 honourable gentlemen kiterang kasik Ceng menang the 2nd frame/game since its his bachelor party. Since die happy sangat first time menang.. die belanja game snooker.

2nd... bukak pose di McD! Ramai berkata... ala bachelor party takkan makan kat McD kot?? Untuk makluman, makan is the least celebrated activity yang kiterang buat. So tak berbaloi pon makan mahal-mahal. Lepas makan... sembahyang maghrib yang diimami oleh Tuan Faisal Azmy.

3rd and last but not least.... KARAOKE!!! Huuuuyyeeeehhhh!!! Disinilah gelagat dan aksi lucu dapat disaksikan. Dengan Ceng yang pilih semua lagi PeterPan tapi satu lagi pon die taktau... Dengan Tapai yang tarik suara sampai nak terkeluar air mata... Ayil yang pilih lagi Maafkan Kami by P.Ramlee.... dan Rumet yang terpaksa jadi backup.. We had fun! Towards the end semua org dah suara macam Amy Search... haha! Event kiter diakhiri dengan last song yang dipilih oleh tapai... Sweat(Alalalalalong) yang ditujukan khas kepada Ceng dan Along. Siap Tapai nyanyi, "Ceng, I wanna make u sweat.. Sweat till u can't sweat no more!". Well, Tapai and Ceng have their history together which I couldnt spell out in this blog.

Anyway, Selamat Menjadi Pengantin Ceng! Hope u enjoyed the celebration. Kalu nak celebrate Part II, kiterang no hal punya! Haha Posted by Picasa

Money Money Money!

Everybody loves money. Everybody needs money. Especially when you live in Klang Valley. On my previous entry I stated that by the 1st day of the month, I'm only left with less than RM200. Apparently I was lying. I'm left with less than RM100 and I have 2 more loan installments to pay!!

Why is money so important? Come to think of it, is it really that precious? IT IS!! To me at least. It's not my fault. It's the society's fault. Since we were born, all the uncles, aunties and all the other relatives were showering us with money. Duit raya la, dapat 4A la, dapat 8A la, dapat No. 1 la bla bla bla.

Why am I writing about money and complaining due to lack of it? Am I not grateful? No... I am grateful. Alhamdulillah recently we in GITN received our bonus. Lucky me! I got a bit more compared to the other average employees. Eventhough it's not as much as the Kristal Award Receiver, but come to think of it with the amount of effort that I put in my work, the sum that I got was more than I should receive :) (do I sound like our mentor Saiful Nang?)

Am I saying that I don't have enough? Yes! I have negative cashflow this month, in Cashflow 202 they would declare me bankrupt. In ...... ah malas aaa aku nak blog dah.. tido lagi baik!!!

Btw the picture above was taken during my birthday celebration at F1 Puchong. More pictures here.

My Small Dick

I woke up late this morning! Maybe due to the tennis game last night, not that I played a good game pon. Everybody knows that I’m not good in sports. I play all sort of sports; badminton, ping pong, bowling, tennis and etc but it’s more of a Pak Lawak je lah. So I arrived at the office late and signed in at 10.05am!

Who cares right? I have nothing to do at the office anyway. I’m now blogging like nobody business. One of the Head of Department is standing next to me discussing matters with Ayil. No wonder he got Anugerah Kristal for last year. I’ve been like this for almost 2 months to be lying. It has been almost 2 years lah! I am not worthy.

Yesterday, there’s a briefing on Voluntarily Separation Scheme (VSS). The purpose is to get rid of floating staffs and non-functional staff in TM Group. It’s like a hint for me. Actually I felt like there’s a Bull’s Eye on my forehead. The thing is I’m tied up with a special bonding called the Scholarship. I’m now serving my 8 years contract with TM (GITN to be precise). So if I were to take the VSS, I need to pay back what I owe TM which is around RM 50K plus. Not a smart idea huh? In the briefing they sort of warn us who do not take up the VSS, there will be more workloads, have to work harder and etc. Now this is what I’m hoping for – more work! At least give me some work lah!

To make the long story longer, I really hate my life nowadays. I hate my job, I hate my house at Ara Damansara (that explains why wifey and I always go back to Kelana Jaya and Bandar Tun Hussein Onn for dinner and sometimes sleep there), I hate being broke (my salary is banked into my account on every 26th day of the month and by the 1st day of the next month I’m only left with less than RM200), I hate my small dick, I hate being fat, I hate being lousy in sports, I hate blogging (I rather work for money than blogging) and etc. My happiness comes from my wife and my child in the womb. I love being with my two cute babies. When I look at them, it makes me smile inside and outside. But if I were in a fight with wifey, my life is left empty again. I’m not sure how much longer can I live like this.

From now on I’m not going to buy food! What the hell?

One Year Ago

Last year, wifey (back then she's not my wife yet) gave me a Nokia 6600 handphone for my birthday. I received it with a SMS:

Dearest fiancè.. Enjoy the bday phone till u get the new toy alrite? Love u baby.

I felt like Im the luckiest person on earth that day. Eventhough there's a bit of a scratch at the screen, Im more than willing to accompany Nurul to get the phone replaced that time :). Since it was an upgrade from a Nokia 3315, it was a culture shock for me to get a phone that has functions like polyphornic ringtones, infra red, bluetooth, camera, can install softwares and all. So to sustain my exhilaration I went to Low Yat Plaza to buy a Bluetooth Dongle. This enables me to send files from my computer to the phone. With that purchase, I also bought a installer cd with all the smartphone software available at that time. One of the software that caught my eye was the SMS manager. The software is supposed to enable us to send SMS through the computer! Using the computer's keyboard! Yeeehhuuuu.... Im gonna make a fortune participating all these SpeedMaster, Jari Pantas ERA etc.

Due to my lack of intelligence, I cant connect my phone to my computer with the SMS Manager softwares. Bummer! I was so depressed thinking that maybe the software does not support my phone or the other way round. Maybe my phone needs to be reinstalled with an updated OS etc.

One year has passed and today I had the urge to re-attempt my long due mission! It took me the whole morning at the office and Thank God today its a success!!!

9130 days old

Thats how old I am today. 2 days short from my 25th years old birthday. For the past 2 mornings I woke up with a sharp pain at the chest area. Oh God! Please dont take my life just yet. I have a baby coming next year InsyaAllah, I havent achieve anything great in my life and etc. In short,Im not ready to die.

The pain was so sharp that I cant stretch my body to either side of my body. I was thinking, maybe this is how it felt when people kene tindih. But the thing is I still can move. The story heard is when you kene tindih, you cant move at all.

Is there something wrong with my heart? Today I got it checked at the clinic. The doctor said, I am experiencing tuuutttuutttt (some scientific name) which in layman term means radang sangkar rusuk or the direct translation is rib cage inflammation. He said it might due to vigorous sports activities... my heart whispered,"HA HA!".

Different People Different Views


Last Tuesday, wifey and I went to Cheras Leisure Mall to grab some Baoz's kuih pau.. Bullshit!! We went there to meet an interested buyer of the Kelisa lah. The guy came with his three other housemates. "Gila lah.. inspection tak hingat!!", my heart whispered.

On the way to the car, one of his housemate disappears. I think he needed a loo. So the first thing the buyer look for is the handle to open the hood. So typical of men huh? Then his friend A check the engine and commented on the new production design bla bla bla. Friend A is really helpful to the buyer as he accompanied the buyer for the test drive and all.

Friend B on the other hand was interested on the wear and tear of the car. "Tayar baru ke?, Tayar Spare macam mane?, Paling jauh pernah sampai mane keter nie? Pernah breakdown tgh jalan tak selama dua tahun ni?", he asked.

Next, test drive time! I warned the buyer that the clutch is a bit stiff. He tried it and replied,"Ok lah ni". So I let wifey accompany the buyer and Friend A for the test drive while I have a chat with Friend B. Imagine if all of us cramp in the car for the test drive... it would be a stress test laaa. So to wrap up the test drive, the buyer wanted to reverse park. Suddenly enjin mati!!. My heart whispered again, "Told ya!!!".

My Fellow Bloggers

As most of my friends know, I don't have any workload at the office. My 8.30 to 5.30 routine is all dedicated to the World Wide Web. I am sort of glued to the web at least 8 hours a day. Due to that I have the leverage to discover my friends' blogs, fotopages, house advert and etc. I wonder why do they blog. Don't they have work to do? Or is it they are facing the same routine as I am now?

One day I will link up all my friends' blogs through my blog or fotopage just to see lah.. (malas btul aku nak menulis!!!)
