The little devil again..

Ya, he is still here... Because of him, our daily routine have changed. I'm having headache everyday and also pimples pop up. I think it's all because of him.

An innocent face he got. Fun to play with but not easy to look after him. He'll keep asking u to carry him by showing this face....
like so kelian only
Now everyday he will climb the stairs for many times and won't feel tired at all. I suspect that this boy is hyperactive.

Towards a better future

No more unemployed. Finally...

After jobless for almost 3 months, before I finish up all my savings I got an offer from Flex and rejected the offer from the other company.

No doubt that I am happy. I finally get what I want ( at least i think so). Just that, I'll have to travel 45 mins to work ( Senai ) and pay RM2.90 of tol fees and then spend at least 45 mins and tol fees RM2.90 to go back home. I'm still not sure how much i'll have to spend for the petrol.

Anyway, I'll try my best for this job :)

Watched it that day.

The whole movie is about a couple whose son passed away donno how long ago. They were suppose to use the highway to go to the wife's parents' house but due to the traffic jam the husband decided to use shortcut with a map. The wife was sleeping all the way until she found out that they were using small and dark room instead of the main road and they began to argue. The car got weird sound so the husband stopped at a petrol station with a motel beside it and asked a guy to checked.

They continue with the journey but the car broke down half way so the husband decided to walked back to the motel and put a night there. The wife against it but the husband insisted. Then they got a room and the husband found some tapes beside the TV and watched them. They realise that the murder cases were not movies but actually happened in their room.
So they started to panic and the bad guys keep chasing them. In the end the husband tried to be hero but got stabbed straight away. The wife killed all of them and the story end.

There are a lot illogical things in the movie and we only can see 6 peoples chasing after each other.

BTW, when we bought the tickets at 11am the ticket for Transformer from 11am to 5pm were already sold out and for Harry Potter only the 11am one was sold out.

Hahaha.. I really don't like Harry Potter ( the recent one ). Almost sleep during the movie.

Lucky week

I can't believe that i am so lucky.

After unemployed for almost 3 months i actually got 2 offers and the pay is higher than what i expected. Maybe it's because the previous company gave me extremely low pay that's why I have low expectation.

I'm still feeling lucky :)

The little devil

Recently have been very very bz. Not because of having a lot of interviews but the return of my little angel ( devil? ) Gabriel.

He is fun and cute to play with but it would be terrible to look after him coz he just couldn't stop moving aroud, looking for something to play. Terrible.. i can only do my things when he is sleeping. He'll be in JB until August. My right arm already pain because of carrying him for hours.
Muakz.. my precious little nephew.

Stupid tol

I drove to Senai that day for an interview and borrow Touch 'n' Go from my dad.
When i reach the tol, i found that i can't reach the sensor!! I have to free the gear and climb out from the window to scan the card. I thought... ermm.. maybe it is my driving skill problem, maybe i was stopping too far away from the sensor. So the next tol, i follow the car in front. I was at the same distance away from the sensor. By looking at how easy the driver scan his card, i thought eh.. maybe this time would be easier. I was wrong. I still have to climb out from window and scan the bloody card!! It was so embarassing. Luckily there were no other car behind me.
Is that my problem? I was driving a Wira and my hand is long. Just that my body... ehemm.. a bit short... but my legs are long le.
Next Monday I am driving to Senai again. This time i won't use that stupid Touch 'n' Go again. I rather queue up to pay the tol.

Come across a nice website recently which allows girls to makeover themselves by uploading photos onto the website. U can use the model's photo too.

All u need to do is just open an account then u can start to try to fit urself into different hairstyles, makeup and also accesories.

Don't laugh la, just showing some examples only.

I am a crybaby

I am very emotional.....sometimes can cry for no reasons.
Especially when it comes to LOVE, i will lose my ability to control my emotion....
I know it may sounds stupid and useless... but this is me.
Keep trying to change.... until now still unable to change.
Useless me..

Miss those time part 1- Mumbles

During the 1st year of my life in UK i met a bunch of super duper nice housemates. SP and I always heard about how nice is Mumbles so YY the girl leader of house decided to bring us. The weather was really bad, cold and windy and it was raining. But it couldn't stop us from visiting this hometown of Catherine Zeta Jones and the famous place in Swansea.
from left: Yi Wei, ah Ting, SP, YY and me
SP the squirrel, YY, Adrian the tallest guy of the house and ah Ting the funny guy
We went to Verdi's for ice-cream.
I hate my hair colour during that time. Look so ah Lian. I'll never dye my hair like this again.

It's so cloudy and windy in Mumbles. The weather in Swansea are always like this.

We were posing while waiting for the bus to come.
I really miss u guys, my dearest house 20 housemates.

Haha, i got nothing to do so i did this

this is me

Live Free or Die Hard 4

I watched it that day. To me it's quite good for an action movie except for it's exaggeration in human ability.

Ya, maybe i shouldn't say so because the title of the movie already stated that it's very hard to die. John McClane ( Bruce Willis ) couldn't die even if he fell down from the F-32 ( I hope i spell it right ), he escaped from the bomb, can always escape from being knocked down by car, won't die even if he was shot...... etc. I was amazed that even Mai ( Maggie Q ) have this ability too. She was beaten up by John and John knocked her down with a car against the wall and she still looked fine. Luckily she managed to die in the end.

I was impressed with how John can drove a police car from the tunnel to hit the chopper.

Fresh Grad

Well, i got a Bachelor Degree in Electrical & Electronics Engineering from University of Wales, Swansea, UK. Just like any other people, I heard from seniors that what u have learnt in universities u can't apply to ur work. I wasn't really believe in what they said because if it's not related at all then why do universities teach us those things? Just for fun??

I went back to M'sia last year and started to look for job. It was easy, out of 5 interviews I got 3 offers. I thought, so it isn't as tough as other people say. So I started to worked as a CAM Engineer which i believed is related to what i studied because it is a PCB manufacturing company.

I was wrong...

Every day, I was just sitting in front of the computer modifying customer's design. The supervisor doesn't allowed any human interaction between us and we were forced to do O.T. even if there is nothing to do. I decided to quit. I believe that with my ability I can get a better job with better offer.

Again, i was wrong.

I thought it shouldn't be hard to get a new job. I keep applying for different types of engineer like Component Engineer, Process Engineer, Sales Engineer, Procurement Engineer...... Until now I have attended many interviews and none of them want to hire me.... I starting to wondering now, "Am i really that bad that's why nobody want to hire me? " Then.... I found that what i lack of is EXPERIENCES. I called a company's HR department yesterday.

Me :" I'm interested in the post, Procurement Engineer. So i was wondering is it possible for u
to arrange a interview with me? "
HR :" What experience do u have? "
Me :" Ermm... I only have 6 months experience, is it ok?"
HR :" So u are a freshgrad la."
Me :" Ermm..ya.."
HR :" I am sorry, we only want someone with experience for this post. "
Me :" Ok, thanks a lot..."
Come on, if u guys don't give fresh grads a chance to learn, how are we suppose to gain experience? Where can u get someone that is young, energetic and with experiences at the same time? Think about it!
I think i should have taken commerce degree because it's easier to find job and with higher pay. For those who is planning to do Engineering course, unless u r guys, if not better think twice.

Shogun Japanese Buffet, JB

Yesterday I went to this Shogun Japanese Food Buffet located in Taman Pelangi to celebrate my 2nd sis's bf's birthday. We reached there around 7.30pm. We didn't make any reservation. I was surprised as the restaurant is bigger and more crowded than I expected. There were 6 of us and they squeezed us into a small table then the waitress showed us around and taught us how to place order.

We were sitting next to the sashimi, sushi and salad bar which gave us the priority to eat 1st whenever there is fresh sashimi.. Yummy... They provide fresh coconuts, all sorts of Maki, teppanyaki, teriyaki, miso soup, shabu-shabu, tempura, ice-cream and soba.

We started with some sashimi and tempura that is serving at the bar. We ordered seafood shabu-shabu, miso soup shabu-shabu, sake, teppanyaki inoki, oyster, abalone, my fave unagi, tempura.....and so on. We ate a lot. Kiasu ma. My sis highly recommended their salmon fishhead but yesterday it was out of stock. They said maybe the shop keep the fish head for weekend. Other than the salmon fish head, their baked cheese scallop and teppanyaki crab also out of stock.

I love their seafood shabu-shabu with the seafood soup base, teppanyaki oyster, sake, unagi and also salmon sashimi. The sashimi is much more thicker than the one in Sosaku, another Japanese buffet in JB. I like the environment there because of it's well decoration but we found that there is some funny smell in the restaurant. It is still worth to eat anyway. It's the best in JB. Don't compare it to KL.

Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus

All content from this blog is taken from the book by John Gray.

Once upon a time Martians and Venusians met, fell in love, and had happy relationships together because they respected and accepted their differences. Then they came to Earth and amnesia set in: they forgot they were from different planets.

Without the awareness that we are supposed to be different, men and woman are at odds with each other. We usually become angry or frustrated with the opposite sex because we have forgotten this important truth. We expect the opposite sex to be more like ourselves. We desire them to "want what we want" and "feel the way we feel." We mistakely assume that if our partners love us they will react and behave in certain ways-the ways we react and behave when we love someone.

A man's sense of self is defined through his ability to achieve results. For a woman to offer a man unsolicited advice is to presume that he doesn't know what to do or that he can't do it on his own. A woman's sense of self is defined through her feelings and the quality of her relationships. Many times a woman just wants to share her feelings about her day, and her husband, thinking he is helping, interrupts her by offering a steady flow of solutions to her problems.
A woman under stress is not immediately concerned with finding solutions to her problems but rather seeks relief by expressing herself and being understood.

Men are motivated and empowered when they feel needed.... Women are motivated and empowered when they feel cherished.
Given the opportunity to prove his potential, a man expresses his best self. Only when he feelshe cannot succeed does he regress back to his old selfish ways. A woman's tendency to be compulsive relaxes as she remembers that she is worthy of love-she doesn't have to earn it; she can relax, give less, and receive more. She deserves it.

A man's deepest fear is that he is not good enough or that he is incompetent. It is difficult for a man to listen to a woman when she is unhappy or disappointed because he feels like a failure. The biggest challenge for women is correctly to interpret and support a man when he isn't talking. Men argue for the right to be free while women argue for the right to be upset. Men want spaces while women want understanding.

The Four F’s for Avoiding Hurt

There are basically four stances that individuals take to avoid getting hurt in arguments. They are the four f’s : fight, flight, fake, and fold. Each of these stances offers a short-term gain, but in the long run they are all counterproductive. Let’s explore each of there positions.

1. Fight
This stance definitely comes from Mars. When a conversation becomes unloving and unsupportive some individuals instinctively begin to fight. They immediately move into an offensive stance. Their motto is “the best defense is a strong offense.” They strike out by blaming, judging, criticizing, and making their partner look wrong. They tend to start yelling and express lots of anger. Their inner motive is to intimidate their partner into loving and supporting them. When their partner backs down, they assume they have won, but in truth they have lost.
Intimidation always weakens trust in a relationship. To make your way into getting what you want by making others look wrong is a sure way to fail a relationship. When couples fight they gradually lose their ability to be open and vulnerable. Women close up to protect themselves and men shut down and stop caring as much. Gradually they lose whatever intimacy they had in the beginning.

2. Flight
This stance also comes from Mars. To avoid confrontation Martians may retire into their caves and never come out. This is like a cold war. They refuse to talk and nothing gets resolved. This passive-aggressive behavior is not the same as taking a time-out and then coming back to talk and resolve things in a more loving fashion.
These Martians are afraid of confrontation and would rather lie low and avoid talking about any topics that may cause an argument. They walk on eggshells in a relationship. Women commonly complain they have to walk on eggshells, but men do also. It is so ingrained in men that they don’t even realize how much they do it.
Rather than arguing, some couples will simply stop talking about their disagreements. Their way of trying to get what they want is to punish their partner by withholding love. They do not come out and directly hurt their partners, like the fighters. Instead they indirectly hurt them by slowly depriving them of the love they deserve. By withholding love our partners are sure to have less to give us.
The short-term gain is peace and harmony, but if issues are not being talked about and feelings are not being heard then resentments will build. In a long run, they lose touch with the passionate and loving feelings that drew them together. They generally use overworking, overeating, or other addictions as a way to numb their unresolved painful feelings.

This stance comes from Venus. To avoid being hurt in a confrontation this person pretends that there is no problem. She puts a smile on her face and appears to be very agreeable and happy with everything. Over time, however, these women become increasingly resentful; they are always giving to their partner but they do not get what they need in return. This resentment blocks the natural expression of love.
They are afraid to be honest about their feelings, so they try to make everything “all right, OK, and fine.” Men commonly use these phrases, but for them they mean something completely different. He means “It is OK because I am dealing with it alone” or “It’s all right because I know what to do” or “It’s fine because I am handling it, and I don’t need any help.” Unlike a man, when a woman uses these phrases it may be a sign that she is trying to avoid a conflict or argument.
To avoid making waves, a woman may even fool herself and believe that everything is OK, fine, and all right when it really isn’t. She sacrifices or denies her wants, feelings, and need to avoid the possibility of conflict.

This stance also comes from Venus. Rather than argue this person gives in. They will take the blame and assume responsibility for whatever is unsetting their partner. In the short run they create what looks like a very loving and supportive relationship, but they end up losing themselves.
A man once complained to me about his wife. He said, “I love her so much. She gives me everything I want. My only complaint is she is not happy.” His wife had spent twenty years denying herself for her husband. They never fought, and if you asked her about her relationship she would say “We have a great relationship. My husband is so loving. Our only problem is me. I am depressed and I don’t know why.” She is depressed because she has denied herself by being agreeable for twenty years.
To please their partners these people intuitively sense their partners’ desires and then mold themselves in order to please. Eventually they resent having to give up themselves for love.
Any form of rejections is very painful because they are already rejecting themselves so much. They seek to avoid rejection at all costs and want to be loved by all. In this process they literally give up who they are.

You may have found yourself in one of these four f’s or in many of them. People commonly move from one to the other. In each of the above four strategies our intention is to protect ourselves from being hurt. Unfortunately, it does not work. What works is to identify arguments and stop. Take a time-out to cool off and then come back and talk again. Practice communicating with increased understanding and respect for the opposite sex and you will gradually learn to avoid arguments and fights.

Certainly every man and woman ultimately needs all twelve kinds of love. Fulfilling a primary need is required before one is able fully receive and appreciate the other kinds of love.

1. She Needs Caring and He Needs Trust

When a man shows interest in a woman's feelings and heartfelt concern for her well-being, she feels loved and cared for. When he makes her feel special in that caring way, she begins to trust him more and becomes more open and receptive which will makes the man feel trusted.

2. She Needs Understanding and He Needs Acceptance
When a man listens without judgement but with emphaty and relatedness to a woman express her feelings, she feels heard and understood. The more a woman's need to be heard and understood is fulfilled, the easier it is for her to give her man the acceptance he needs.

3. She Needs Respect and He Needs Appreciations

When a man responds to a woman in a way that acknowledges and prioritizez her rights, wishes, and needs, she feels respected and is much easier for her to give her man the appreciation that he deserves.

4. She Needs Devotion and He Needs Admiration

When a man give priority to a woman's needs and proudly commits himself to supporting and fulfilling her, her fourth primary love need is fulfilled. When a woman feels that she is number one in his life then quite easily she admires him.

5. She Needs Validation and He Needs Approval

When a man does not object to or argue with a woman's feelings and wants but instead accepts and confirm their validity, a woman truly feels loved. When a man learns how to let a woman know that he has this validating attitude, he is assured of getting the approval that he primarily needs.

I had to admit, this is the best movie that i have ever watched. I used to think that <300> is nice but on 28th June 2007, i have changed my mind.

It is so nice that i watched it twice! 1st time in City Square and 2nd time in Tebrau City. I realise that TGV cut a bit of the movie to make it 2 and a half hour. They cut the part where Megatron chasing after Sam into the building. I don't like their way of doing this.

This movie is damn entertaining. It has the romantic element, hot girl ( Megan Fox ), super cool cars, funny stuff......

There are 2 parts in the movie where i like the most. 1st one is when Sam Wicwicky a.k.a. Ladiesman asked Optimus Prime how did he and all the Autobots know how to speak, Optimus Prime replied that they learnt it from the World Wide Web!!! The 2nd part is when Sam asked Optimus Prime how did they got to know about his great-grandfather's glassesthat can lead to the location of the AllSpark and Optimus Prime told him they he learnt about it through EBAY!!! Haha.. perhaps Transformers spend their free time browsing through the internet.

I was so excited when i saw my NFS Carbon's Pontiac Soltice as one of the Autobots!! It is indeed a good car which has good handling and very easy to control. My fave among all of the Transformer is Optimus Prime " One shall die, one shall stand"

I am glad that they used my fave band Linkin Park ( What I've Done ) as the theme. Good job Michael Bay.
