But I will not fall into the same temptation like them :)
Merdeka celebration in PutraJaya is good, except for 1 thing: I didn't expect I will get sun burnt for just 4 hours. I know it's our 48th Merdeka Day, but it't the first in my life I'm not sleeping at home. Woke up early to join my colleague to PutraJaya for photography.... and who knows.. it's gone ... it's gone... without starting the session :(
I thought I left my memory card in the office and hence I went back to office to collect it. Oh no .... I just remember I pack it into my bag last night before leaving office and I changed and I'm using a different bag today :(
Well... just go and take a look then ...
Reached home about 12 midnight and start doing homework for KLTI until 2am. Crash to bed until 10am the next day. Continue with my home work with empty stomach :( ahahahh ... I'm so used to having breakfast, so cannot tahan at 11:30am but soooo lazy to go out for lunch. So I cooked a packet of my favourite Tom Yum mee with a half cooked egg on top.. yummy
As usual, at 1pm when my niece and nephew arrived, I will be so tire to play with them, talk to them, listen to their 1 week stories ;)
Went for class at 4pm, feeling so weak, headache, stomach upset, sore throat, sleepy
Half way trying to recover my piiiiiiiink snow blog layout and it should be done by tomorrow. Now it's time to go to bed. Night night.
Surprise - Phone Bill
It's my roaming charges while I was in Bali.
Call Received for 1 min is RM10.00
Call Received for 10 seconds is RM3.36
Outgoing call for 10 mins is RM 27.50
Got a total of RM120 for roaming ;(
And According to the statistic, Mr. Orange, 50% goes to your phone numebr ;) One fine day, Pink Lady decided to pick up one project and get involved in the developemnt ;) It seems to be a long long time ago she have not get involved so heavily into software development
Waoh ... It took her about 2-3 hours to come out with a Preliminary Requirement Document. But I think it is good ... good to be back to software development.
May be it's time to retire already... so boss, if you are reading this ;)
It started with Mr. O asking a question : What do you need to have bible study class? You need to study the bible?
I was triggered to think about this question today in my bible study class.
I do believe that the bible is God's word, but it seems so unbelievable to the world.
And if I tell you that the few thousand pages of the bible covers the topic of management, leadership, teamwork, love, forgiveness, change management, problem solving, success, patient, hope, encouragement, etc ......
will you believe me?
It came as a revelation to me... waoh ... why am I missing the point and not reading the most valuable book? I have just added another count to my record, so it is now X+1.
Record of what? Record of falling down ;(
While walking back to the lift after my class today, I enjoy hearing the sound made of my high heel shoe ... tuk tuk tuk tuk tuk tuk and suddenly my backside landed on the floor :( Twisted my toe again
Everytime when I fell down there is no one around. The good point is that no one will see how bad I looked. The bad point is that no one is going to help me.
This trigger me to remember "Batman Begin" . Why do we fall? So that we learn how to stand up .....
Was very tire and decided to go back home earlier (early ???), left office about 6:50pm and when I was near my house, I saw the sky is beautifully decorated by a hugh orange sun.
Quickly rush back and took my camera to take a few pictures ;)

Rainbow Went to pump petrol last night and as most us know that some petrol station still do not allow credit card to be used from the pump itself. So I estimated the amount and just paid RM50. Who know the pump stop at RM41. I continue to pump and until RM47, the petrol splash out like fountain. :( So the motorist at next pump got RM3 free petrol

Managed it ?
See comment only after you have counted them, okay?
Do you think there are three?
recalled by the Manufacturer. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named "Adam" and "Eve" resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units.
This defect is technically termed, "Serious Internal Non-morality," but more commonly known as "SIN"
Some of the symptoms of the SIN defect :-
a. Loss of direction
b. Lack of peace and joy
d. Foul vocal emissions
The Manufacturer is providing factory authorized repair service free of charge to correct the SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus Christ, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs.
To repeat, there is no fee required. The number to call for repair in
all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R.
Once connected please upload the burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure.
Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Christ, into the
heart component of the human unit.
No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Christ will replace it with:
Please see the operating manual, HOLY BIBLE, for further details on the use of these fixes.
As an added upgrade, the Manufacturer has made available to all repaired units a facility enabling direct monitoring and assistance from the re sident Maintenance Technician, the Holy Spirit.
Repaired units need only make Him welcome and He will take up residence
on the premises.
Continuing to operate a human being unit without corrections voids the Manufacturer's warranty, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list, and will ultimately result in the human unit being incinerated.
Please assist by notifying others of this important recalled notice.
Thank you for your attention.
I might die of "heart attack" one day

Bali Trip Stories
3 August 2005
Didn't really sleep well because of the chicken woke me up by 6 am. Took a peep from my window and saw beautiful view ... Took a few picture and sleep again.
After breakfast we decided to just take a slow walk and enjoy the kampung(village) life. We walked to a habour that provide boat for tourist to take a tour across Lake Batur. There are a lot of villages but we didn't stop by. Only stop by Truyan Village where the dead are not bury under the ground, they will leave the dead body on the ground for 6-8 months. After that, those bones will be thrown to the side. There is a tree there that I was told it's the only 1 in Bali that can prevent the body's bad smell.
On the way back, we meet some students walking back home. A truck stopped by and asked the children to get up and they just "fly" towards that direction ;)
Had Bali's local food for lunch. I love the Ayam Goreng Bambu Bali a lot.
Took a nap and then Made-The Artist offered to sent me to see the villages by motorbike.
"Oh no. Thank you. I just want to enjoy the scenery here."
Hehe .... obviously that was not my answer.
"Oh really? OK."
We went to see the Lava from the Live Volcano-Mt Batur.
At night we decided to cancel our next day's stay in Hotel Surya-Kintamani because the 2 famous places are Trunyan and Volcano ;)
