Another Round of Pirates 3

Made myself watch Pirates 3 again for the 2nd time! WooHoo! it's still good. Seriously the show is worth watching more than once. I can't remember when I watched the same movie twice or more in the cinema. lol.

Stressed out

I've been feeling a little stressed out because Suby does have a problem and I can't seem to find the cause of it. I would like to apologize to everyone for my weird behaviour like sitting in front of the computer and staring at it and not doing anything. My mind is filled with endless thoughts regarding this problem and it has taken alot of my concentration away from the people around me.

I pray for improvements soon.

Pirates of the Caribbean 3

Now this is what I call an entertaining show. It had alot of witty scenes which really makes the show more interesting apart from the main storyline. It's a definite MUST WATCH for anyone. But to really understand the witty stuff you'd have to watch the 1st and 2nd part.

I loved everything about the show. The characters, the costumes, the storyline, the action and the special effects.

Go watch it!

Weekend at KL

Ahhh another trip to KL, to the workshop for more interesting chats with the guys and head scratching when it comes to checking the car and looking out for parts that needs to be fixed.

The trip to KL was easy going, traffic was moderate and weather wasn't too hot either. Kept Suby at 140 on the highway without any stops I arrived at the workshop in under 3 1/2 hours. Informed the boys to get the hand breaks checked and some drive shaft and steering boots changed. All in all Suby was pretty much ready for anything by evening.

My PG gang that I hang out with decided to head down to KL too this weekend. Edzil actually bought a new car, the Suzuki Swift. Grey karer. Not bad. So Rosalind and Cheryl did a lot of shopping from what I heard. LoL. I manage to take them out for mamak at Hartamas on Friday night, thanks to Nigel for the guidance. But gang let me apologize for not taking ya'll to a nice club or pub as you could see most of them were packed and the prices..well I considered the fact that most of the allocated budget would have already been spent on shopping sprees. So we ended up in the mamak puffing Shisha. *Thanks Mel*

By the time we left the mamak store it was like 12:30am and most of them were tired. Nigel and I guided them back to Jln Ipoh where their NO STAR hotel was located. Then we called Ian and gang, they were still playing BattleField 2 (BF2) at the cafe. We decided to join them and it was a lot of fun :) We continued playing after having a noodle break and finished at 3:50am. It was kinda unfortunate that Ian's van actually couldn't start due to a faulty ignition coil or starter. I gave them a lift home and by the time we got back it was 4:30am. I think I slept at 5am, I think.

Had an early start to the day, woke up around 9:30am and headed to the shop 1/2 an hour later. Had Suby checked again to ensure everything is ready for GRA Round 1 which will be happening on June 3rd 2007 at Shah Alam. For more details on GRA please head to their website

Around 12pm Nigel and Kenneth showed up and Nigel decided to go hunting for a helmet for autocross use. I decided to join them and we went around looking for the helmet, he finally got one for about RM300.

It was Saturday and unfortunately we didn't have much luck in planning to go to Velvet. So we ended up at Laundry Bar at the Curve. At the same time I was the FA CUP finals and Chelsea against Manchester United. It was lucky that Chelsea got that goal, but I was a nice touch and go by them. I managed to as Rosalind to join us and we all had a drink and looked around the pub/club areas of the Curve.

There was this guy preforming on stage at one point and he did beat box using his voice and I was blown away from his short performance. It was unbelievable, like having 2-3 beats and able to sing a little. The beat is something that you'd usually hear in clubs, house/technoish.

Had burger king and headed HOME. Ahhh the weekend is just too short!

Ego-istic People

Have you come across people who have a big EGO? I'm sure many of us have had an experience or so with these people. Honestly I feel sad for these people, you'd wonder what kind of childhood they had in the past that made them what they are now. They are most probably the outcasts in society, although there are few people who actually try to console and help them out, most of us just become victims to them as they prey to show their ego off to these selected few people.

Sometimes it's just unnecessary ego boasting that is shown, even the most patient person can get fed up of that. But seriously I wonder why they do that, what makes them so eager to show their skills off at such high expectations? I know I'm good at some things but I don't show boat it unnecessarily. But like I've said before, no one is perfect unfortunately.

I just wanted to rant. :)

An Unlucky Week

I call it bad luck.

Wednesday my colleague and I screwed up a presentation meeting and were lucky to just given a warning from a close fren/manager who wasn't impressed at all.

Friday just before dinner Suby's temperature gauge went past half point and nearly over heated. Lucky I managed to stop nearby and finally got the car to the workshop nearby. The problem was caused by a broken hose under the intercooler and was fixed the following day.

Saturday evening, on the way to dinner a small bird ran into my car. Poor bird. After watching a movie with the gang I finally got home around 1am. I just wanted to check if everything was ok under the hood, then I heard a sizzling sound coming from the engine bay. I finally found out that it's another pipe which is leaking under the turbine. Small droplets coming from an expanded hose, gah! Another trip to the workshop and fixed after a few hours.

...a bad week indeed...

Overall not a bad show. Although a little short I find it quite enjoyable. Not much to comment about.

Being Sarcastic

I know that no on is perfect. But it's kinda weird that some people don't know that they are actually being sarcastic, in a bad way. Yea we all use sarcasm as a joke most of the time, but only with close friends and people we work with who understand that the sarcasm is actually a joke.

Let's take for example in the office. These people, they wonder why they are treated as outcasts by their other colleagues. It's not surprised because to most of us who can actually spot called sarcastic remarks that are totally inappropriate it's easy to see why they are treated as outcasts.

Here's an example. Let's say you're asking a question like, "Hey, are do you play, basketball?"

1. Yea, I play, we should get together for a game sometime
2. Yup, I play and am really good and have beaten all my colleagues in Collage. I used to be captain, blah blah blah...

Imagine someone using answer number 2 in your face. Totally inappropriate. Usually I wouldn't be bothered with these people and I still am not but I just wanted to RANT about it. You sick Mofo's. Get your act together and stop it!

It's bad enough to have these people outside of work. Having people at work who you see every single day for 5 days and at least 8-9 hours a day is just too much torture for even the strong at heart. To make it worst, imagine having those people around that are actually desperate to get attention of the ladies. Makes me wanna puke.

'Scuse me while i kiss the sky.

Spider-Man 3

Fantastic, simply fantastic. The show was good, everything I actually expected from the fight scenes, camera angles and the animation was simply just excellent. Although the the movie does cramp a lot of stuff into 1 show, but everything was well planned and it made everything just perfect.

Although I pictured Venom to be much bigger and muscular and have a more husky voice. They seem to use the Todd McFarlane's version of Venom that is of a smaller size.

But all in all, an excellent show.
