Untitled

After a while I didn't showed up, I feel like to write something at least a few words here at my blog site. First of all, lately I am so tired, working 12 hours per day until my project completed. Working on night shift give me a double-tiredness cause night time is suppose to be the ideal time to close my eyes. It's totally different with my university moment where midnight was the most active time to do this and that. But as I start working, I slowly changed back to normal. Night time is the best time to rest my head on my pillow and get some rest. Dear God, please help me to get a new office hour job as soon as possible (of course with a better pay la kan... :) ).

BULL MARKET
KLCI index closed at 1040.79 today. Market is consistenly going up. Yeah, that what it means by Bull Market. It is expected that the index will continue to raise up to 1,300 points. So, I can consider now is the good time to invest on market. Those who have enough money, don't wait too long, you can choose to buy some stocks or if you don't really expert in managing and monitoring the market, buy mutual fund. Leave it to the fund manager to manage the money. For these few weeks, the funds were always green in colour. Only a few were red with only a little bit drop. I myself thought about withdraw some money from my PNB's amanah saham and put some on Public Mutual until the buying force slows down abit, then I will sell the unit, provided I have recover the service charges.

Why the hell is the market going up??? According to experts, this is because of the 9th Malaysian Plans and people started to invest to see positive return. For me, one of the factor was the PMs criticism to the government. Why did I said so? After receive a dozen of criticism, of course the prime minister and their cabinet do something to prove it to the ex-PM, Malaysian citizen and also the rest of the world that they are worth on their position. The sleep PM of course will try his very best to wake up even it is a rainy day on a very sweet Subuh time. Leave all his blanket behind and start to focus on his duties and responsibilities. Then I believe there will be some positive effects on Malaysian's economy.

DAILY JOB
Working is of course tiring. Especially when you work on overtime. But what to do, it is my reponsibilities as I am being paid for every single hour I spend on my workplace. Right now there is a project to be done. Calculating cycle time for every QA process, starting from the SMT SPC process, IPQC at MIMA, Functional, Diagnostic and Dimension at Testing area and of course packing. 4 hours per day I spend on doing this starting last week but of course not every day. I got some better things to do outside. New model in high schedule PD1970 - Boston -> the in-house name for the product. I am not sure what the product on the market but it sure kick as. It is a PDE model something like Zen and I-Pod with a tiny physical size and 512MB to 4GB storage. Just wait and see.

SYAWAL ALMOST AT THE END
Yesterday I attended one last weekend open house at QA supervisor, Mdm Aishah house. It was the closing of Syawal open house. After this there will be no more open house to attend, so I have to reserve some money for food.. Haha... Previous week, there is one Sunday I attended 4 houses and eat like hell. The fourth house my stomach is totally full and only can fit in some cakes and fruits. Waiting for next year Syawal for more open houses.

That's all for today, will update more during my leasure time. Thanks for taking sometime to read. Enjoy your day and have fun with everything.

Success Agent Workshop

Last Thursday I got a called from the Public Mutual Melaka Branch Manager - Mr Carl Wong. He invited me personally to the Success Agent Workshop held On Friday 22nd. It was a great workshop. There's alot of things I learned not just about this unit trust and invesment world, not just about the retirement plans and how they encourage people to plan for their financial, I learned something about life. I met some new folks there and of course some of them I met before. One of them was Mr David Tong, the financial planner. He came to MMU last year and give some talk on financial planning. He was a computer engineering degree holder, graduated from UPM. After graduated he was been guided by Mr Tan Kim Book, the chairman of FPAM - Financial Planning Association of Malaysia - Melacca Zone, and now he is one of the financial planner and I can see how good he is now in this financial planning world.

After meeting with all these kind of people, I was very enthusiastic on this financial planning thing and I feel that it is important for me to share some of my knowledge some to my friends and of course relatives. How we can live with financial freedom and up to one point, money is no more a major issue.

It is a difficult task to educate people, especially those with pure malay mentality. Even I tried to brought this thing up to my engineer. I just can't understand why malay people not willing to take the risk and keep on thinking about security instead of freedom???

At Last I Continue....

Well guess what? At the moment I wanted to quit, I gave some reasons and they were trying to entertain by eliminating what I don't like about my job and I demanded a few conditions in order for me to stay. I told them I will continue a 3 month contract, if and only if they give us a senior post - senior technician - and some amount of basic salary which is definitely much much more higher (ok! this is bad english)then what they gave me for the past 3 months. And suprisingly, HR agreed after proposed by my senior engineer. Huh... I don't know how to express my feelings at the moment they told me about this offer. Whether I am sad or happy??? Huh... I wanted to quit, but the offer was good enough and I told them to fulfill all the conditions and when they did, I have to keep on my promise. I would never expect they can fulfill everything. Those with diploma after working for several years probably could not get what they offered to me with just 3 months experience.

The basic may not be as high as engineer post or supervisor post. But what is important to me is the rate-per-hour. This will determine how much they pay me per an hour of OT. Another 3 months to go before I really move out from this post. I wont be here too long. I don't want to stay here with all those kind of mentality... you know some of them might have a lower class of mentality, that is why they can sit there an work for more than 10 years! And yes, for my post I deal alot with all the operators than engineers. So you can imagine how I have to put myself into their shoes and talk according to their levels. I am not saying that all of them has that kind of mentality. I see some of them were very potential to move forward, but they might have some financial problems which makes them stuck forever there, or maybe they don't have anyone to push them out. They simply don't see it! For this kind of people, I tried my best to motivate them and go for a better job or probably any kind of business they could make. And I think for three months I worked with them, i have changed some of their mindset and I will continue my mission for another 3 months. Most of the operators are malay and of course Indon (indon pun ada yg pukulan jugak!). Why malays like to work and continue working until they retire? Why less chinese and indian become operators? Hurmm... Then you may answer the question yourself...

To Continue or NOT to Continue

My contract at Cubic will be finished next Monday, 25th September 2006. Which means I should be free from the company and I may concentrate on finding a suitable job for me. I don't think I should stay in this company any longer since first of all they don't pay me that much and my second reason is I just can't respect my QA supervisor for my shift. I already complained all my problems to my sr engineer and I don't feel happy with this job! But things went worst. So I decided to quit! Yeah.. quit! With my qualification, I can go further, higher than the supervisor post. Why should I begging for this job. But... If I go, my department will go tempang. Seriously, they need us (my friend who is also a degree holder and me) badly. That is why my sr engineer struggling to ask us to stay. She increased our salary for a few hundreds and also promote us to a higher level of technician. But we not yet gave our final decision. If I work for another month, at least I got some money for the eid fitr celebration. And with new basic salary, I can earn more cause my rate per our is increasing drastically which means, if I OT-ed I may get a comfortable pay for every hour I spend. Just wait and see another few days what will happened.

Ok, right now I think I need to go to Jusco to buy some food. Then masak abit before I went for work. Thank you!

Again - direct 16 hours

Just came back from work. Today, again, I worked for 16 hours direct. I didn't OT last week. Even I mentioned bout my OT on my previous post but for the whole last week none of the OTs I attended. OT is important for person with job like me. Or else the salary just like cukup-cukup makan la. OT on Sunday they will pay double, instead of 1.5 from rate per hour. Then, when there is any production schedule on Sunday, don't ever miss the opportunity to participate.

Next week I'll be working on Morning shift. Morning shift is the busiest shift compare to other shift and most of the time OT will be filled out within this period of morning shift. Oh boy, I hate working on morning shift. I have to face all the office hour staffs. But it will be more fun when I have something to do, rather than dok melangok jek without anything to do.

Another 2 weeks to go before I finish my contract. I don't think I will continue the contract if they still offer me with this post and with this amount of salary. I know they wanted me to continue, but I rather stay unemploy than working like hell with this little amount paid. Penat dowhh... gaji ciput. Pi mampuih la... maleh aku nak nyambung. UNLESS, if they can raise my salary minimum RM300 and promote me to senior tech. If not then I wont stay.

Uhhh kepala sudah pening. I better go to sleep now. Good nite... (or good morning)

Extremely Exhausted

Yesterday, as my previous post I mentioned that I always slept late at night while I working on afternoon shift. Yes, yesterday I slept around 4 something. I woke up around 6.45 in the morning for subuh prayer and the surprising part is I didn't continue my sleep as usual. What I did was I renew all my cover letters - just change all the dates and prepared for any relevent document to support my resume. Then I have appoinment with the dentist today at 10 and I went to Melaka Raya at 9 something and I have to wait there for about 1 hour. Dah appoinment pun kena tunggu... Nak kena pukul dentist nih. But nevermind, I have plenty of time to submit all the resume and finally I finished submit to 5 companies at 3pm and quickly rushed to work.

Today, the new QA senior manager Dr. Bong have a meeting with us and the way he deliver his point was quite boring. I just can't stand my eyes but luckily I managed to maintain until the end of the meeting. Then, after a while 2 engineers went to me and asked me if I wanted to continue my contract. And I said hell no! Both of them offering me the same flexibilities and to be honest, I am sick and tired of my job. I just don't want to struggle for this job since my qualification allows me to go much further than this. Unless they can pay me with a very good pay, then I will stay. But I haven't made up my mind yet, so I asked them to give me 2 to 3 days for me to think. If I am not working, then I will loose all my pocket money. And if I am working, I wont be satisfied with what they pay me with all my contributions and all the hardwork I provide to them. Ahh.... Demn it...

Ohh.. esok kena OT lagi... Kena masuk pukul 11am - 11pm. Yeah.. this time I really don't have any life. If 7am - 7pm for me would be fine, but 11am-11pm is like cam bangang jek nanti. Arrghh...

ASW2020 financial year end on 31st August

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 15 (Bernama) -- Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB) Tuesday announced an income distribution of 6.80 sen for Amanah Saham Wawasan 2020 (ASW2020) for the financial year ending Aug 31, 2006.

OMG... This year the distribution is less then 7%??? I have a few thousands in this ASW2020. I am thinking that it is not worth to put on more money there since this fund is not performing well. The approved fund size were increased last year from 3 Billion to 4.3 billion. But they're giving distribution less from last year which is 7.10% last year. And this is a totally good reason for me to took out some portion of my money to invest in a better places.

If I parked my money on Public Islamic Bond also I will received a higher pay which is 7.42%. And of course when you park on an equity fund you may have a better return then the bond fund but a higher risk for lost as well. And according to Robert Kiyosaki, you have to take some risk for a better return. Yeah.. Azizi Ali did mentioned the same thing. So, let invest in the newly launched fund, Public Islamic Ittikal Fund at 25c per unit. (giler promote fund nih...)

No life till leather....

First of all, I hate working on afternoon shift. Want to know why, just simply I don't have any life when working on afternoon shift. I'll work from 3-11 and went back and doing nothing until 3am to 4am (my mind just keep on telling me that I need not to sleep early since tomorrow I don't have to wake up early) - and actually now is already 3.13 (at this point of writing). Then I will wake up late around 12 or 1 in the afternoon. Then go to my laptop n doing nothing. mandi2 then again go to work. It's like nothing I did when I work on afternoon shift. What an empty life.

I should apply for other jobs since I know I am not happy anymore with my low-paid job. I should earn more; even double from what I earned now. Tomorrow please help me dear God, wake me up early in the morning and please let me allocate some time to send my resume to other companies which might need a good worker like me. Anybody who read this, please do miss call me around 8am. Don't too early coz I need some sleep after the subuh prayer.

Know what... The other day I posted a video on you tube titled "tanya linda - hantu" and each time I opened up one of my gmail account, it will consistently notify me about this piece of video I posted that day has a new comment on it. I don't know how the hell they reached my video but the comment is consistently added by the viewerw. And today, again one more comment. And the suprising part is it already reached 5430 viewers with total of 27 comments. Wow... I never expect to receive such a huge number of viewers. But of course as a normal human being, a little bit makes me proud!

Ok, I think I need some sleep now. Hope I will wake up tomorrow to send up all the resumes. Believe me, I never send it to any company (except for cubic after being called up and of course through jobstreet.com la kan). And tomorrow will be my starting point of my new life.. Cheewahhh... macam dapat jek... But If you never try then you'll never know. Jom, kita carik keje ramai2...

That's all for today. Thank you!

PIMM what the hell is this???

Today, as I was reading a book i bought last Tuesday, I received an SMS saying that I was choosen as one of the committee of PIMM. PIMM is Persatuan Integrasi Muzik Melaka. After organizing Battle of the Bands during my final semester in MMU, there's alot of people called me up seeking for some advice and asking me to joined them for their events especially those who are organizing battle of the bands. I guess I didn't managed well my event that day since I can't really cope up with my final year projects, some tough subjects and some other problems. But it was suprisingly the feedback from people was positive. After I called up their respective person, I was attracted to the plan and the objective of this society. It is a long term plan and it is for the benefit of music. I decided to have a deep look before I committed to join this society. It's good... It's guuuuddd!!!

Then today is Sunday. I OTed last nite from 11pm - 7am and seriously I have done nothing during the 8 hours working period. erm... of course I did something. I slept at the inspection table which can't be done on normal days. And the first think comes in my mind was - Am I eat the salary blindly (makan gaji buta). I am afraid when I died, God will asked me about all the salary I earned. But again, if I compared to those days I worked as hell, don't even have a spare time to go for a break and working from morning till night... Then this is the time to qada' what I did that day. Haha...

Then on my way home, I bought some nasi lemak and karipap somewhere at the muzaffar heights area. I made some observations, how much they earned during my short period of time buying the nasi lemak and how much estimated they will earn for a day. They are no doubt can become a silent millionaire. But when I reached home, I ate the nasi lemak, it doesn't taste good at all. If not because of my hungry stomach it would be almost impossible for me to finish it. Plus the salty tahap gaban karipap which can lead a person to a high blood pressure if a person took it every morning for a month. Then on my way back home, there's a two youngsters selling nasi lemak which I bought the other day and I asked them whether they are selling every day or just occasionally. They replied everyday but when I went back home I can hardly see their faces. Which my conclusion is they are not consistent with their business.

These are the reasons why a lot of people did not make it to the millionaire planet. The opportunities were there but they never use it wisely. I think they need a little guidelines to business in a more efficient way and make alot of money. But for me it's another lesson that I learned without have to experience them. Learn through observation can save alot of cost and time.

Haven't update my blog for quite a while. The reason behind it was my internet line was fucked up and I am paying for nothing this few days. I hate went that situation happens - cannot connect to remote server bla bla bla.... That is why the telekom share drop a little I guess (Err... I am not sure the current one - this is based on the quarterly fund review provided by public mutual)

Speaking about public mutual, PUBLIC MUTUAL Berhad will launch their new islamic fund which called PUBLIC ASIA ITTIKAL FUND (PAIF). This is an aggressive fund and the risk profile can consider the highest among all public mutual Islamic fund. I myself decided to park some of my money inside since they're offering initial price at 0.25c per unit which can consider cheap (normal for every new fund launch). Furthermore, they are giving away 1% from the unit bought. This is a good opportunities to invest some amount of money and those who are interested again can call me for some consultation or to clear any doubts. The initial offers end up on the 11th of September, so hurry up and decide to diversify your investment.

PAIF will focus more on Asia's market which is one of the fastest growing regions in the world. And the best part will be the investments are in compliance with Syariah requirements. Public Mutual is the best private unit trust company in Malaysia and has won 30 awards out of 42 awards last year. And for those who have more than RM55K in their 1st EPF account, you can use the EPF scheme to invest in unit trust.

Am I workaholic?

Ok... Lately I've been working like hell. I did some OTs if i have the opportunities to do so. I OT on last Sunday cause they pay us double salary by working on Sunday. I worked from 3-11pm. And the next day I work on morning shift 7am-6.30pm (OT for 3 hours). The next day I have to cover the other tech who was on leave because of his brother's marriage (21st August - same date with Siti Nurhaliza pulak tuh!). I work from 11pm to 11am which mean I have less than 5 hours before I continue my duties. Then the next day (today) I have to OT for another 4 hours from 7am to 7pm. I must try to seek alot of money cause my current post didn't pay me a high basic salary. And I am too stupid didn't act much on applying a new job which is more suit with my qualification. Ok... I have started to print my resume today, and seek a few addresses around the internet to work on other manufacturing side. I did enjoy working in my work place with a PCBA manufacturing environment. I gain a lot of useful knowledge which they never thought during my undergraduate programme. It is more hands-on experience. I learn a lot of things about engineering, in fact i did alot of engineer's work except for the management part. I enjoy each and every moment of learning. But lately, I am frustrated with my supervisor after the group leader came back for duty after a 2 months holiday for having her baby. When I was first time scolded not because of my mistake, and she without any investigation or not even a single intention to understand our situation, just burst out all her anger towards us which can consider as innocent. One of the inspector were cried because of his unwise action and I myself tried to explain what's going on and she immediately cut out my words. Without any choice I just let her say what she wanna say. And from that moment, I have no respect at all for that supervisor. I have heard alot of rumours before this from a few QA inspectors about her attitude but I didn't just listen to them until it happens to me. There's alot more stories about my situation at the manufacturing line and the drama between me and the supervisor. What makes me more unsatisfied with her. But I wont elaborate more cause. And now you can see why I am starting to apply other jobs. To be frank, I don't really care about a ciput basic pay that I earned each month as long as I am happy with my job. But, if I am unhappy with all this, why should I continue begging for the small pay? All I need is self-satisfaction and if I am not happy with my pay and my job, there is no point of continuing my job. I can't wait to tell them "I QUIT!" But one thing I like about my shift is about all the inspectors from my shift. They respect me alot and we can work well among each other. And I have alot of fun working, joking and sharing stories with them. Yeah, you know most of them came from a poor or lower than middle class la and I am realize how fortunate I am to be with my family even we're not that rich but I can say that we are financially stable. Thank God for his blessings!

Now I have to learn on how to spend money brilliantly and how to make alot of money and save alot of money. Not make alot of money and spend also alot of money. Dear God, please help me on this. Thank you!

Ok, I think I should stop rumbling. I can bet most of the people who view this post won't read everything bcoz I don't even put on paragraphs properly on this post. But, who cares. till then, see ya at my next post.

Oh ya... that day I promised to upload more pictures during my convo. You can view my flickr. Just click the link on your right hand side. If you can't view the link, please refresh you browser. And if you still can't find it than that is your problem. Not my problem!

The top 10 unintentionally worst company URL

Hey.. this is a good one. I read it from BB post on friendster. It's a coincidence or purposely done, I am not so sure. But it really makes me laugh, or at least put on a smile on my sour face.

Everyone knows that if you are going to operate a
business in today’s world you need a domain
name. It is advisable to look at the domain name
selected as other see it and not just as you think it
looks. Failure to do this may result in situations
such as the following (legitimate) companies
who deal in everyday humdrum products and
services but clearly didn’t give their domain names
enough consideration:

1. A site called ‘Who Represents’ where you can
find the name of the agent that represents a
celebrity. Their domain name… wait for it… is

www.whorepresents.com

2. Experts Exchange, a knowledge base where
programmers can exchange advice and views at

www.expertsexchange.com

3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen
Island at..

www.penisland.net

4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at..

www.therapistfinder.com

5. Then of course, there’s the Italian Power
Generator company…

6. And now, we have the Mole Station Native
Nursery, based in New South Wales..

7. If you’re looking for computer software, there’s
always

8. Welcome to the First Cumming Methodist
Church. Their website is..

MMU 7th Convocation

Well, last Sunday was one of the most meaningful day in the history of my life. Yeah... as I mentioned on my previous post, I am graduating on this day as a degree holder BEng(hons) Electronics majoring in Computer. 4 years of degree course plus another year for foundation studies, at last I acheived my target even my result was no better than I expected. But it was not easy being a lazy man and expecting something such as 1st class. However I thank GOD for his blessings and all his rahmah to me since I was born till the end of my life.

I received my digital cert from the MMU chansellor YAB Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali. My dad and my mum were there inside the Grand Hall watching me receiving the digital scroll (actually it was an empty box, then we have to claim it at the counter at the new building which I am not sure what's the name of the building). After I went out from the hall, I tried to call my parents and the network was jammed coz everybody tried to make a phone call. After I met my parents there were more than 20 misscall from my friends and my family members. Some of them wanted to take photograph and luckily we met after a while. :)

I took alot of pictures in case the view or the photo didn't look nice. I purchased the SIGMA yearbook and the Convo DVD (actually not me who purchasing those items. It was my dad who took all the money from his wallet). They were very efficient when it came into business. The convo CDs and DVDs were ready by the time the convo ceremony ends. And I haven't watched the DVD and also haven't viewed my digital scroll yet. Probably tomorrow after I wake up la... Very lazy today.

We stayed there untill 1.ooam before we moved to alamanda for lunch. Thank God we didn't stay any longer. It was as hot as hell wearing 3 piece of shirt (shirt, blazer and the robe). And I didn't took my breakfast as well. Once again, thank GOD for his blessing and his kindness.

There's loads of pictures inside my memory stick. I promise to upload some of them later on. Right now I am quite busy and don't have sufficient time.

Rehearsal is tomorrow!!!

Ok... Today is already Thursday and as usual, tomorrow will be Friday! Err.. Friday will be the rehearsal ceremony for the 7th MMU convocation. And I have to work tomorrow from 11.15pm(tonight) till 7.15am(tomorrow. The rehearsal will be starting at 9.00am at Cyberjaya. And I must drove super quick there so that I wont miss a thing. But I know they are all malay and malay will hold one principe - janji melayu! haha... what a negative thinking. I hope I can make it tomorrow. 7.15 we will be released from the factory, 15 minutes to walk to the parking area. 5 minutes to warm up the car... Ok... this part can skip tomorrow I guess. Then 10-15 minutes to drive back home and 2 minutes to take bath. Then tup tap I'll be leaving at 8.00 la kot.

I really do need a lot of money for tomorrow. RM30 for fuel, RM15 for toll, RM150 for rental of robe including deposit and I haven't shopping anything yet for my convo. I didn't buy anything at all for the sake of my convocation??? And just now my housemate called up about this month rental. Haiyya... Phone bills also not yet paid. Arrghhh... Money is a major issue when you just started working. And I am very2 shy to ask from my parents. Ermmm... Takpe2 lets us read the Ayat Seribu Dinar. (surah T-Talaq: 2-3)

Chinese Calender

This is from a good friend of mine. She said, "According to Chinese Calender, You need to watch your temper. Getting angry will cause you to emotionally stressed and lead to insomnia. Nevertheless, you financial and career luck is very good. There are supporters helping you to overcome obstacles. All you need to do is ask..."
Ermm... After I read thru this msg, I realize that it was all true about this prediction. I was in a huge temper this morning with an Indon girl at my factory. I choose not to elaborate more on this topic cause it may lead me to burst out and makes me more unhappy. But the point is clear here. I have to watch out my temper. But I never worry about my insomnia for whole week ONLY since I am working on night shift. I did feel sleepy during my operation hour since last week I work on morning shift and I was used to sleep early. I slept in a horrible position yesterday inside the office, but luckily it was not too long.

Financial and career luck, I guess this is also true. This month I did alot of OT (refer to my previous post if you want to know more). But right now I am broke. I didnot have alot amount of money to go shopping for my convo. I was never thought about shopping for convo, until I went back to Muar last weekend and my aunt asked me about all those new shoes and shirt. I told her why need new shoes and shirt? I have my old karipap shoes (which I bought during my form 5). Then she added, it's ok if I don't want to buy any new shirt, but shoes is like mandatory! Oklah... but where to cekau duit..??? Some more i need to get a haircut, and the last time I went for a haircut, they charged me RM9. Like WTF??? This is a normal barber not like saloon or a high standard. Even the shop looks like stor tempat simpan barang.

Supporters? Yeah.. I realized I got a lot of supporters. There's alot of people around me who actually cares alot bout me. And I strongly believe, there's only two possibilities for those who always read my blog, either care bout me or he/she hates me alot. And I am positively thinking most of you guys came from the first, and hopefully none of you came from the latter. And I got alot of friends at my workplace which is close to me. :) also some friends around Melaka, especially those who always lepak at Mama Jammerz. But everytime I have problem or I feel irritated about something, most of the time I never asked anything from anyone. Like I am waiting people to approach me to share all my problems with me. Yes, some of them did that when they saw me when I look moody or something. Thanks alot for those who care!!!

Work work work...

Ok... I didn online for almost 4 days. No one saw me on the internet nor on their YM list. Actually the line was down few days ago. In addition, I didnt pay my bills. Hoohhh... My reason is simple... I DON'T HAVE TIME TO PAY THE BILLS.

This week I work on morning shift which should be from 7.15 to 3.15. Usually during morning shift we got two technician working on permanent morning shift since there's a lot of works to be done during morning - cause all works involving other office hours workers (PQE, PE, Document Control, etc etc). But, when my turn work on morning shift, I am totally unlucky in a way (but of course lucky on other ways). First of all, the senior Tech Zalie was on annual leave on Tuesday and Wednesday. And Fahmi the trainee was MC on Monday and Tuesday. Gandhi the associate engineer also on leave on Monday and MC on Tuesday. So, you guys can see how I have to handle everything by myself.

As a result, I have to OT on Monday (7 hours OT), Tuesday (6 hours OT) and Wednesday (8 hours OT). Imagine working on this 3 consequence day 15 hours, 14 hours and 16 hours per day. Of course, I am tired. But I think it is a good experience cause I'm doing something new that day also helping the engineers on preparing documents etc etc. And of course there's something makes me feel irritated with all this higher post. Some of them just give all the work load to me which suppose I should say "Hey... This is your job! not my job!" But I think it's a good experience, then I just proceed without any complaint.

Working in this environment is fun for me. I can handle well all the stress during works. I admit I made some mistakes during my learning process and also repeating some mistakes. But, I am human maaa... where got human built with perfect package. I sold 3 box of Kopi Radix this last 2 weeks. Keluaran Bermutu daripada HPA. Right now I am preparing a new type of business. Salary alone will never be enough for people like me. So, I have to think some other way to grab alot of money. Today is only my fifth day after received my first paycheck. But I think I have used more than half of it, excluding paying my handphone bills, utilities bills and house rent. How can people like me survive??? Ahh... Rezeki ada dimana2. The only thing is how to get all those rezeki.

Ok, I talk alot today. It was like words for 4 days.... Enjoy your day and smile always for smiling will make you maintain cute and handsome. :)

Exhausted....

Yesterday I woke up as early as 6am in the morning and I didn't sleep anymore since it may lead me for an overslept and cause me a much more trouble afterwards. I slept at 4 something in the morning which means I got only less than 2 hours of sleep. Yeah... i got insomniac and it troubles me alot when it comes to sleep at night. I drank 2 packets of tongkat ali coffee which both of them are different brands; then only I went to work.

On the way to work, it was a rainy day and some of the rain drop was over my head. I feel a lil but of headache at the beginning of the day, but then I just wash a bit my head with some water at the toilet, so that hopefully the acid water will removed or at least, will lessen the risk of any illness.

Today could be the most busy day for me ever since I joined Cubic electronics last June. I got some documents to prepare and I need an urgent approval from one of the assistant engineer and at the same day, he's on leave. Then I have to seek approval from the busy engineer for that particular product PD0006. Then there was 1 card SB0679z - an X-FI model soundcard were rejected by the QA inspector, Mdm Azalinda and suppose the other technician, Mohd Shazali should verify this card and There is two FA (Failure Analysis) card model SB0358 - Audigy ZS card which was assigned to me to work out on the failure analysis. After doing my part until 3.00pm, I should pack up all my stuff since my shift end up at 3.15pm. I was thinking of my bed and pillow at this moment since lack of sleep really makes my body feels tired. But then at 3.15 I was told by the group Leader Puan Maznah that the technician just called up and he asked me to stay due to his half day leave today. Then, I have to settle down not only my Audigy ZS, but also the X-FI SB0679 because the other tech did not yet done the verification of the reject with the production PE. Ok... It's not a big deal actually to OT for 4 hours. But then the MOST BIGGEST PROBLEM rise when a new engineer, Mr Wang have to do the verification process with me. I can categorize this person of the most banyak cengkadak person ever I work with in this factory. He was like never want to agree with the reject even after I showed the evidence. I t was like half of his salary will be cut-off if I rejected the card. It takes me more than 3 hours to verify this card which can be done in less than 30 minutes. There goes my OT. Doing nothing but spending my time on that stupid card with that stupid engineer (this is the result of a high scorer nerd students accepted for a high post in a division). Then after the verification process, I make a conclusion of the distortion noise on the sound card only can be detected when a full software installed on a particular station. Then my senior engineer asked me to make sure all the production line which doing the rescreen process must be installed by a full software and not just by updating the driver. But then that stupid engineer, while setting up the station pegi bantai sembang ngan the other supervisor in chinese language and I don't understand even a single word comes out from the mouth except for 'university' and 'engineering' and they make me look like tunggul there, and no progress at all with the installation. Kepala hotak dia. Yes, I am hot at that time. Dah la wasting my time, then make me look like a tunggul. Then, I just went off to the office and told my engineer about what happened with an angry voice. Hopefully the higher person could hear what I was talking about and immediately sack that particular new engineer!!! I hate when all this higher position such as engineer, berlagak nak mampos. Think that they are big enough and all the technician is like a picisan. Well FUCK them!!! even test production technician also didn't like that new engineer.

Yes, I have to OT actually for 6 and a half hours today. But half hour can't claim anything, so I just went for a dinner with Abg Hizam, the Sr Tech for QA and Abg Jai, the Sr Tech for MIMA production, to make sure the half hour turn to a complete hour. Then, after 10.25, I scanned TMS OUT and went back home. After I reached home I have some sleep around 11.15, but suddenly my phone ringing and until now I just can't sleep! Oh dear God!!! Please remove this insomnia from me!!!

Today is Sunday

Today is Sunday... Ok. I woke up after receiving from one good friend of mine, told me there's a guy died fall from the Ixora apartment. I was shocked but since I just woke up, I have no intention at all to have a look on what happened.
You can have a look at the picture here, here and here.

Then I just woke up playing the guitar, set down some of my patch on my GT-8. I bought this thing was quite a while, but i never tweek each and every function of this multipurpose effect. I think I should just sell this effect and get myself a DS-1, OD-1 and DD-3. And not to forget Morley Bad Horsie wah. But to play with this keta kebal must have a good amp to play with. The effect alone is not sufficient. Or at least a pre-amp. Tup tap... It will cost me almost the same with my GT-8. So I decided not to sell my GT-8 and just use it as long as I could. Ok... What I talk just don't make any sense. Sorry for wasting your time.

When a blind man cries

For the past few weeks or probably month, I just feel myself wierd. I got a lot of friends but I did feel alone. I feel like a blind man who walks alone and no one care bout me. (Ok, i know some of you did care). But I know thisfeeling is weird. I just can't explain myself why. Tried to start a new life, but the feel is still there. Sometimes we just can't ignore what we feel.

Oh ya... I heard that during Rejab Allah took alot of peoples soul and I am not suprised if the next one is me. If I am not here anymore, please forgive me for what I have done. And if I am still here, I'll try to be a new person with new attitude and change to a better person.

When a Blind man cries
If youre leaving close the door.

Im not expecting people anymore.
Hear me grieving, Im lying on the floor.
Whether Im drunk or dead I really aint too sure.
Im a blind man, Im a blind man and my world is pale.
When a blind man cries, lord, you know there aint no sadder tale.

Had a friend once in a room,
Had a good time but it ended much too soon.
In a cold month in that room
We found a reason for the things we had to do.

Im a blind man, Im a blind man, now my room is cold.
When a blind man cries, lord, you know he feels it from his soul.

Lesson Learned

Sometimes I just don't know myself well. But At least I know some of my characteristics. Yes... I am a person who usually talks the truth and tried my best to be honest. In most cases I tried to give the most accurate answer except for things people labeled it as a secret, then it wont easy for me to pass it around. But then I found out that when I am being honest, people misused it which the end result makes me feel uncomfortable and irritated. In addition, people does not being honest with me as the return. Honesty is the best policy. I did hold those words tight. And when people being dishonest, it could be the end of my trust over him/her. And for me, trust is one of the most important element in a friendship. Why some people just can't tell the truth???
This kind of attitude just fucked up my life and I am sick and tired of it!

Hands On Heart

I just feel alone. I need someone to talk to. But I just didn't find anybody who suit for this job. I feel somekind of pressure. This was proven when some of my collegue said that i look like serabut or something. Probably I didn't manage myself well or probably it reflects from the inner side.
I got loads of works at my work place. And I am pretty sure, that was not the reason why I am acting so. I can handle a tones of works during my industrial training with 3 QA technicians around and working for 12 hours. Today, we have 5 technicians, working for 8 hours and I got more than triple of my basic pay. I just don't understand myself.

You maybe human... But you still an animal

While I surfing the NST site to get to know what's happening around, I was touched with this one story about a 10 years rape nightmare ends. Here's the intro of the news:

PETALING JAYA: For more than 10 years, a woman endured the trauma and shame of being raped by her father.

I just can't imagine what type of father is this. He has a comlete human physical but a total of animal behaviour! What makes me more confuse was he's not a single father for the report was lodge together with the mother. 10 years is no joke man. I think he better choose to pay a prostitute, if his wife and his hand can't satisfies his sexual desires; rather than raping his own child. It just don't make any sense!!! Even I have no relationship and I didn't even recognize the girl and his family, but I feel as mad as hell. If I ever met this guy, I will rip of his testicle and gave it to a wild crocodile to chew it so that he will never ever rape her own daughter or anyone else in this world, ever again...!!!

Guys next door

Last few days, six guys from kolej komuniti bukit beruang moved next to my house. Yesterday, while I came back home from town, I did say hi to them and together with a brief introduction of myself. I can't spend so much time since I was rush for work. Just now while I watch this G3 video of Eric Johnson - 1998, (since just now Tapa asked me for the tab) I heard some words outside from my windows, "Assalamualaikum... Assalamualaikum... (Peace be upon you)." As usual, I am phobia when people throw those words outside from my house in a very skema way. You want to know why? Ask my ex-housemates whether in BBI or Taman Kerjasama. I have a bad experience with all this Tabligh movement here in bukit beruang. I would not choose to elaborate more on this tabligh topic. But then I just be brave and opened up my curtain and I saw my neighbours outside. And I asked him, what's up? Eh... segan-segan pulak... aku lempang kang... Oooo... They wanted to borrow my guitar. Haha.... "Dah gian la bang...!! Nak amek kat kampung, jauh!" Huh.. Whatever la. I just lend him my cheap Santa Cruz guitar, and hope they happy to lepaskan gian on that guitar. :)
Ok.. I shall go to work now!

Candle Lite Dinner


Just now i belek2 my CD case and I found up a CD of Candle Lite Dinner, performing at Sri Costa Hotel on the 6th August 2004. Almost 2 years past and I can still remember how our band was active at that moment. The line-up Azmil(drum), Shafiz(Bassist and sometimes Eu Gene on Bass) and myself Johan(Guitar and vocal). We played for a few gigs in Melaka, before Azmil decided to stay in KL and we don't play together again. I tried to form another band but every bands was like pokok pisang. Berbuah sekali pastu kena tebang. But still using the name Candle Lite Dinner for some functions because I can't think of any suitable band names for the temporary band. Then the organizer simply put on Candle Lite Dinner as they recognized me as CLD.

I played with Azmil since we we're in Alpha. From our first band South Park, played on MMUsic Live and Kickin' concert organized by Guitarist Society with five line up, Azmil, Gadap, Tengku Aidyl, Wan Rathnor and me. Then during the second MMUsic II Acoustic Session, we played again as South Park (Johan-guitar+vocal, Azmil-drum, Rathnor-Bass, and Slumber-guitar). Azmil, Rathnor and I was addicted to this jamming and we did jam regularly at that time (even twice a week with 2 hours per session) and we performed once on Dataran Sejarah during 2002 new year. But then, Rathnor transferred to Cyber (formed Service Provided for the Poor and April) and then our major problem is to find a bassist! Then we came out with Syefri as our bassist and we performed as The Lost Idols on telentime where seven collar t-shirt as the guest artist (that time just launched their first album, freeway, dreaming and broke with Mokhtar on drum). Then Sharidz took over as our bassist. Realizing that people didn't recognized The Lost Idols We then changed it back to our old band and with a brand new spelling - Sorth Parque. We did composed a few songs with this band until Sharidz continue to further studies at New Zealand. Then Amed joined the band during the heat of Muse we're in the atmosphere. Eu gene then joined our band and we changed it to Candle Lite Dinner. We qualified to the final for BOTB tones of Absolutions, while Eu Gene already graduated and back to PJ with his family. Shafiz then took over the place as our bassist and this is our last bassist before the band was split.

Enjoy the video!

Cosmic Funk Express

Official Announcement

Dear friends,

With this, I’m sad to announcement that Cosmic Funk Express has disbanded, Due to the reason that Zack has left the band and is set to return to Korea. Because of this, Alda and Alex have decided to call it quits but perhaps with a new hope that someday they will find a new lead instrumentalist to continue Cosmic’s legacy.

On behalf of the band, we would like to take this time to thank everyone who has supported us along our journey and we’re really sorry for letting you guys down.

Thank you so much and we love you all

Alda, Alex and Zack


While they're on the way to the peak of their music, suddenly shit does happened. They haven't finish their album yet, but thing goes on so fast and didn't allow them to stay any longer as a band. Yeah.. it sad! They're good band. Probably the best band in Malaysia, with a unique kinda music. Then they have to release one of the talented gutarist in this region. Wish them a good luck. Hope this is not the end for Cosmic. May luck be with them and all the best to Zack Kim to start a new life as a Korean Boy in Korea.
They will having a farewell gig soon at Mont Kiara Jazz Festival, date will be confirmed later. Hope to be there...

Down and down again

Err... I just don't know what to say. Sometimes working with malay you'll experience a kind of pressure. Yeah.. pressure. Not because of loads of works they asked you to do, and not because of their quality of works are low. Here's what happened to me; I joined MO1 QA during my practical and mixed with every people who I worked with. But then I joined back in MO1 QA with the same post, but the difference is I completed my studies... I kept the same attitude, respect the elders, although most of them are operators - then they can reply "Johan, dah sombong. Orang dah abes belajar... Dah pangkat tinggi, dah nak jadik enjinier... eh... nak jadi anjing liar". For those who worked with my department, they were happy as I returned there as a technicianbut some of them kept on saying things like this which totally makes me down! Yeah, probably for them this is just another joke, but seriously I hate that kind of jokes. I did act normal just as during my industrial training; as far as i am concern lah... What for I feel proud, I get the same post as what I have last time - technician with the basic less than RM1k - still wearing Cubic Electronics t-shirt, while there are 3 of my collegues, studied in MMU joined Cubic as Senior engineer assistant and Associate Engineer with basic pay around 2K. I do need some support, not this kind of tease which makes people down.
Another case is people from higher levels, who deals with all those managers - who decide all those engineers, also never want to help to promote not just me, but some of friends as well which clearly can see their attitude towards works, also their experience. Then, what can I say... Just deal with it! This is the kind of life I am facing right now - Just accept the truth, or else, just quit the job! (Yeah, I was thinking to open a business)

Hole In My Soul

Hole In My Soul

I'm down a one way street
With a one night stand
With a one track mind
Out in no man's land
The punishment sometimes
Don't seem to fit the crime

Yeah there's a hole in my soul
But one thing I've learned
For every love letter written
There's another one burned
So you tell me how it's gonna be this time

Is it over?
Is it over?
'Cause I'm blowin' out the flame

Take a walk outside your mind
Tell me how it feels to be
The one who turns
The knife inside of me

Take a look and you will find
There's nothing there, girl
Yeah I swear, I'm telling you, girl yeah 'cause

(Chorus)
There's a Hole In My Soul
That's been killing me forever
It's a place where a garden never grows
There's a Hole In My Soul
Yeah, I should have known better
'Cause your love's like a thorn without a rose
Yeah, yeah

I'm as dry as a seven year drought
I got dust for tears
Yeah I'm all tapped out
Sometimes I feel broken and can't get fixed

I know there's been all kinds of shoes
Underneath your bed
Now I sleep with my boots on
But you're still in my head
And something tells me this time
I'm down to my last licks

'Cause if it's over
Then it's over
And it's driving me insane

Take a walk outside your mind
Tell me how it feels to be
The one who turns
The knife inside of me
Take a look and you will find
There's nothing there, girl, yeah, I swear
I'm telling you girl yeah 'cause

(Chorus)

Yeah, is it over?
Yeah, it's over
And I'm blowing out the flame

Take a walk outside your mind
Tell me how it feels to be
The one who turns
The knife inside of me
Take a look and you will find
There's nothing there, girl, yeah, I swear
I'm telling you girl yeah 'cause

(Chorus)

Oh, oh...

Altitudes by Jason Becker

Music will reflect my feeling and it sounds good in different situation. Sometimes you listen to a song and u feel it's a nice songs, but then if you listen it again in other time, you'll feel like "Eh... How can the other day i listen this song it was nice?" After doing a research, I found out that music just simply reflects with our daily life. Have you guys ever think why most of metal listeners are from a middle age, alternative listeners from the younger generation, jazz listeners are most from an older age and pop listeners mostly are girls. In my opinion, after doing some observation - people listen to songs because they reflects from their inner side. Mostly students (male) will listen to a sreaming2 songs (i like Nirvana) just simply because of the pressure I had. While in the other hand, for those who don't just because usually they study early and if they can't finish their studies during exam - ok... Just let it be! I'll take the paper next year! (err... this is just example la) That is why screaming vocalist comes from a troublesome family - Take Corey Taylor (Slipknot) and Kurt Cobain (Nirvana) for instance. While some rap or hip hop usually sang by people who have less problems. They enjoy their life. And most of malay songs are jiwang2 songs just simply because the composer (most of the songs comes from the same composer la kan) will definitely have some memory with their lovers. Those who appreciate music will produce jazz songs. And of course for Nasyid, mostly comes from religious background. Errmmm....
Sometimes when I woke up in the morning, I will enjoy some fast number songs or songs that can bring me some semangat. Time for sleep, if I still turn on those kinda music, will make me insomniac...
This is just my opinion. Not sure bout you guys...

Boring Day is Yesterday

Yesterday, I am totally out of mood. I woke up as early as 9am (even though it is not early for some of you, but it is early for someone who's working at 3.15pm) with some plan in my mind. But suddenly the plan ruinned up, and i straight away go home to have some sleep (coz i slept late the other day). But then, since i took a cup of power root ali cafe with tongkat ali earlier that day, I only can guling2 without able to have even a 5 minutes nap. Then i decided to play my guitar until it was 2.00pm. After took my bath and prepare to go to work, i went to the campus first to visit the MMUsic booth. I went to my workplace and there's an issue on the soundcard SB0467z (sound blaster X-Fi) which i was given a task to follow up on that issue. I can't go break to have some food until that job is done - and i felt damn hungry since i didn ate anything since i woke up or in fact since last nite dinner. I went break alone at around 6 something alone because they went break earlier and while I was eating i heard something which makes me uncomfortable. I had a bad day yesterday and I just don't know how to cheer myself back again. I should be happy coz i finally received my final result with my GPA 3+ but i don't feel good until i forgot bout my result. Hurrmmm... Please God cheer me up again...

Thank You everybody

Am's Farewell Party

Last nite could be a memorial night for Wan Mohd Irham, or we call him with his nickname Am. It could be his final moment in Cubic Electronics Sdn Bhd (or probably he'll apply for job there or maybe offered for the same post after he completed his degree). He started working there during my industrial internship and now I'm back in cubic he resigned from his post. He finished his 6 months training and another 2 months contract as a technician there which makes all together a total of 8 months.
A dinner was organized by MO1 QAs to celebrate his resignation and to appreciate all his contributions during his service period. I arrived there around 8.30, straight to the factory after bought a present for him at Jusco. Only those who worked in shift B attended this dinner (except for me - special case... and of course Am la kan). Am is a hardworking, and his attitude can be seen from the beginning after he join MO1 QA.
This is my second time to attend a farewell dinner celebration here at cubic. Last time the Pak Guard didn't allow us to took all the pictures inside the factory are. But today, I just snap a few shot without any of the security noticed me taking any of those pictures. Thank God. (I hate security guards! they are the most kerek creature in this whole wide world! Regardless where they're working...ok, they just doing their job. But still...)

FMUTM CUTE

I just came back from CUTE - Computerized Unit Trust Examination. The question was quite easy if compared to any of my final examination papers. I had to read only one powerpoint slide which the hard copy provided by public mutual during the CUTE revision class held last 7 & 8 June. It's like studying one chapter for final examination. Moreover, the questions were all objective (same like cisco online examination). The result was instantly release which i got passed (without knowing what's the actual mark). Ok... If any of u interested to invest in unit trust or probably have no idea what unit trust is, you may contact me at johan_e1@yahoo.com or you can ym at Y! johan_e1. I'm going for a CFP (certified financial planner) course if sponsored by the company (of course after sales up to a certain amount). I think it is good to educate people about financial planning to make sure financial freedom in the future.

On my way back, I saw an accident just freshly occured at the new road behind melaka central. The van was terbalik and I saw the driver (or probably one of the passenger) were seriously injured (or probably dead) where there are blood all over his face. It was a tragic event and straightly remind me to drive safely and pray to God the almighty to protect me wherever I am. Na'uzubillahi min zalik.

Ok, I have to go to work - afternoon shift at 3.15pm sharp. now already 2.27. I want to mandi2 first before work. Melaka panas beb... Wish you all have a nice day!

Already got a job

Ok. The other day, Mdm Nor Azlina Md Shah, the senior engineer MNQA department called me to help her out as a technian at the cubic factory. Mdm Nor Azlina or i called her kak ina (sometimes we use mak ina among us since her age is almost my mum's age) who was also my ex-supervisor during industrial training offered me a job as a QA technician also to help her out in daily job. I don't think it is a very good offer since to qualify as a technician, STPM or sijil would be enough. But as a fresh graduate, i need not to be very choosy to find my job for this attitude can lead me to another job... planting the grape (or in malay we called it tanam anggur). Last Monday I went for an interview and just now they confirmed everything and I may start my duty next Monday. Yeah.. they don't pay me alot. The basic is less than RM1k, but i think in Melaka, with that amount of money i still can survive without much hassle. I am not yet received my final result (as i sat for a supp paper yesterday), and they use that reason to cut a-bit the amount that I demanded. (I was called up, so I can demand a bit la... Hahaha..) But still, the amount offered could be after 2 years increment for a fresh dip graduate to work there i guess or probably more. But, to be frank, i don't really care about the amount of money as I go for the experience first. If I want to make money, I won't find a job; or to be exact I won't work for people. This is the first lesson by Robert Kiyosaki's Best Seller book - Rich Dad, Poor Dad. As for me, making money and gaining experience is two different things. Probably after i gained enough experience, I will try to make some money pulak...

Brazil won world cup???

Hey... this is a good one. I received from one of my friend a few days ago. I'm not sure about the fact. Too lazy to check. But it sound kinda interesting.

Brazil won the world cup in 1994. Before that, he had won this title for the last time in 1970.
If you add up: 1970 + 1994 = 3964
Argentina won the world cup for the last time in 1986. Before that only in 1978.
And 1978 + 1986 = 3964
Germany, though, won the world cup in 1990. Before that, Germany won in 1974.
Look: 1990 + 1974 = 3964
This could lead us to guess the winner of the World Cup in 2002, since it should be the winner of the 1962 World Cup (In fact 3964 - 2002 = 1962).
And Brazil won the world cup in 1962! (And, in fact, Brazil won the 2002 WC)
This numerology seems to work...
And now, who would be the winner of the 2006 world cup?
Let's see, 3964 - 2006 = 1958
And who won in 1958?....
Oh, Brazil did!!!

Condolence to my neighbour

Today I woke up abit late, as usual and I have to go to Cubic to hand in some document that they asked me the other day. So, around 3 I opened my front door and i was quite suprise when I saw a bunch of peoples were outside my house. What happened??? With a thousand questions in mind I just went out to the factory since i was a lilbit late. I straight went to my lecturer's room to ask something (actually to bodek2 la) for tomorrow will be my paper since i didn't sit for my final paper last trimester. Then i went back home and afew peoples were sitting infront of my house and I have to parked my car quite far, in addition there is pasar malam infront of my house today (wednesday). I joined the pakcik that we're sitting infront of my house and we have a lilbit chit chat. I still never knew what happened (I also very shy to ask) until one of a random guy came to us and asked one of the pakcik "Bila jenazah nak kebumikan?" The other pakcik replied "entahlah, katanya nak tunggu anak dia balik dari sarawak. 15 minit lagi dia baru sampai KLIA." Owwhh.. somebody passed away... Innalillahi wa inna ilaihir raaji'un... We came from Allah, and to Allah we shall return. Suppose they shouldn't wait for their son to arrive, cause Prophet Muhammad PBUH told us, there are 3 things we shouldn't delay, and one of it was to settle down the jenazah.

Then came one of my neighbour joining our group. And later on he invited me to drink some coffee at his house. It's a normal thing, when people become old, they will talk something about the religion and perhaps something about akhirat. It was a good thing actually, but some of his points i really don't agree at all. I don't want to eloborate further, but to me, when we want to talk something about the religion, we should have enough knowledge about what we gonna deliver or else, if that thing went wrong then who gonna responsible with all those things? I am not that good in this religion kinda stuff, but I got some of my points to debate, but i choose to keep quite since old people usually wont listen to younger people. I tried before but it just wont work. Ok, the moral of the story:
1. Jangan taklid buta.
2. Don't look at who's talking, but listen to what s/he's talking.
3. Wake up early, and try to look what happened around you.

Lagi FWD msg... but this is a funny one...

Ok... I woke up this morning and received this fwd msg. As usual, i said "OMG... ada lagi ke orang pecaya benda2 macam ni???" if there's a powerful virus and it's really2 powerful, sure they'll announce it on CNN or buletin utama or something or at least MMU bulletin board. Then i read through the whole msg and i found up my friend's ID. cikoi_sons??? Hey, i know this ID. Then i fwd the msg to my friend and ask him, why his ID is inside this msg. At first I thought his friend probably nak pedajal him or something. Then he explained, "Tu aku yang buat!". I told him my fren from sabah forward this to me. He said this particular message already reached Arab. And he added, the other day got people call him asking for job. And he said, he'd made something similar like this, and people keep on forwarding until one user call him. Ok... moral of the story.... Don't believe in fwd msg... unless:
1. They provide link to a web-page about the details
2. They atleast put on date
3. It can be logically explain without any proof
4. It's a joke or something
I think this is fun... why not i try to create a chain msg and see how far can it goes.

Black Holes and Revelations



Last week I downloaded Muse new album - Black Holes and Revelations. Overall, the album they still maintain the concept where if u listen to one of their song and if u familiar with muse, u can tell that this is Muse's song. And they added a lil bit of maturity in their new albums. In terms of sound, definitely they recorded their album in a high-quality studio and they fully utilize every room in each songs where you can hear not only guitar, bass, drum, and piano, but quite a few instruments as well. And i do believe they will use the sequencer when they performing live. Yes, they are professional musician. Here are some suggested songs if you wish to download:
1. Starlight - uhh... i like this song. Best siottt!!!
2. Invicible - macam lagu pemberi semangat
3. Solder's Poem - if u searching for a slow and feel song, this will do

Starlight
Far away
The ship is taking me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

Starlight
I will be chasing your starlight
Until the end of my life
I don't know if it's worth it anymore

And hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms

My life
You electrify my life
Lets conspire to re-ignite
All the souls that would die just to feel alive

But I'll never let you go
If you promised not to fade away
Never fade away

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations
Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms

Far away
The ship is taking me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

I'll never let you go
If you promised not to fade away
Never fade away

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations
Yeah
Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms

I just wanted to hold

Congratulations for all graduating students and hope to see you guys at cyberjaya this coming August!

The Opening of "Kelab P. Ramlee Melaka"


TYT and wife
Originally uploaded by it's a secret....
Yesterday i received a call from pakcik salleh, asking me to go to taman budaya. There's a grand opening of kelab p ramlee for melaka district. Being a leader, TYT Melaka, Tun Mohd Khalil Yaakob was very sporting. He sang some p. ramlee's song with his beloved wife there. Prior to that, after giving the opening speech, he played the double bass and some of his assistant holding musical instrument as a gimmick for opening, which i think he's quite sporting and supportive. I didn't snap any photo while that thing happened instead of taking video. I think picture can be more valuable than video coz after i took the video, pakcik salleh asked me to print him a copy of that picture, but i can't do that with that low resolution video. Some more, I can't share the picture here. What a sad person I am...

But nevermind, overall i enjoyed the show. With some live orchestra, they played a few p ramlee's songs and a theather based on p ramlee movies which is quite fun... Yeah... hopefully they'll organize more events like this as what they promised last night...

PAM yang berkualiti

For some of you staying outside Melaka, you probably don't have any idea what PAM is all about. Ok.. PAM is Perbadanan Air Melaka - the water works company for melaka state. According to their motto that they keep on printing on every water bills "Perkhidmatan Berkualiti Cabaran Kami", they kept their promise very well...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Ok, i give you some proof. From the picture above, you may see how the water looks like. Besides supplying a crystal clear water, you can never found any of the water work companies around Malaysia or probably around the world that can supply 'milk' through the pipe of your house. This is what they meant by "Pekhidmatan Berkualiti" I guess. Yeahh... thanks alot PAM! You really make my day...

Whut happen to my Marshall?

It's about a week or more i din't play my electric guitar. Last 2 days i went to briged seni, lepak2 there and i asked tapa, the briged bassist for some metallica jam. tapa used to play metallica before he joined the briged and play all those malay song and lagu2 asli. Tapa said ok! Today, i think i need to warm-up and set some tune on my GT-8. I haven't set any metal kinda sound. I just use my previous sound with a bit overdrive and try to play around with the equalizer on the build-in pre-amp. Probably i didn't turn on my Marshall stack MG-10 for sometime, and the amplifier starting to merajuk. Sometimes there's a sound, sometimes there's no sound. After turn the volume louder it produces sound. Anybody know how to fix this problem? hurmmm... what??? buy new amp? hey, if i got rm2k cash right now, probably i will find a new one. The only problem is the fullus... Ok... If anybody can help me with this problem, please leave down in the comment. Thanks in advance...

Sorry... It's not my birthday!

Yeah.. people feel bored when they have nothing to do. After the final exams, i really2 feel bored. I can't go back home since i joined the public mutual unit trust and probably becoming an agent after i finish the exam. I just finish my class for the past 2 days (7 and 8) and i have to attend the orientation on the 14th and 15th. Ok... when i have nothing better to do, there where people come out with some bangang idea. Nak dijadikan cerita, one day, i browsed my frenster page and i found out i haven't updated my profile for years. I edited some of the words there and when I saw the birthday drop out box, i purposely change my DOB (hoping somebody will give me some present for my faked birthday). After editing those, I just leave it there and totally forgot what i have done with the date until one day, a pop-up windows from my yahoo messenger appear, a girl wishing me a happy birthday... I get blurred for 2 seconds before my mind refreshed and recall back what i have done with my frenster the other day. Ok... I directly opened up my frenster account and there are 3 peoples wishing me birthday, and the next day the number increased to 5 people. I just can't believe it, there's one of my internet frens whom i know her since i finished my SPM, who posted a testimonial for me twice for my birthday this year - on my original birthday last march and on my fake birthday 5/6 or 6/6 i can't remember. hurrmm..

This is the screenshot of my frenster testimonial. Should I approve or should i not?

Keyboard

I have to be serious on playing any instrument, as i play the guitar from day till dawn, i'll stick with that axe. Err... since i bought this keyboard, i guess less than 5 song i could play with this instrument and i need a further guidance from a professional or probably intermediate player. I know some guys out there, and probably they'll ask for some fees. Probably for beginner is around MYR50/month. Ok... nemind, i'll open my firefox browser and search for free lesson on the net.

PRIMAX 3

Just now, while i came back from my friend's place, my car ran out of petrol. I went to petronas near my taman to feed my hungry car with some fresh orange juice and i saw an advertisment. It was the new petronas product PRIMAX 3. After i reached home and put of my butt infront of my PC, i opened up my firefox browser. There's a news about the launching of their new product of PRIMAX 3... Owhh... baru launching kaaa??? Today they gonna start on selling it at price RM1.92 per liter. Hurmm... Personally i prefer Shell fuel and i think it is true that "Lebih kilometer dengan Shell", the slogan they keep on spreading. I did feel the difference since i ride my bike last time. Hopefully Petronas also can make it with their new product as what they said on the advertisment.

Ermmm... and hey... this is a good one. I read it on the NST site.
Being greatly affected by the fuel price hike and stressed out by the traffic jams that are becoming a definitive mark of a world-class city like KL, I am planning to cycle to work - from Petaling Jaya to Ampang.

The idea is to use it in tandem with the LRT systems in the early parts of the morning and the later parts of the night, when the trains are generally free.

After consulting the LRT customer service officers, I was surprised to find out that bicycles are not allowed on the LRT, even if one were to carry it in as opposed to ride it in. Bicycles offer in return a cleaner, safer and healthier city. In many super cities like New York, Chicago, Boston and London, to name a few, the use of bicycles has been celebrated as way to reduce cost of travel and increase mobility within the city. Trains and subways in these cities do not forbid carrying of bicycles onto trains and subways, except during peak hours. Why has it been forbidden in KL? Our LRT systems only covers areas proximate to the 2 lines, both of which fail to pass near to high-density, populated areas. This problem can be easily solved by a quick bike ride from the nearest LRT to the said areas. Walking, except to close distances, is an act many Malaysians despise. The heat, the pollution and the terrain make it such a drag.

I like the point there. One of the biggest problem staying in KL is transportation. Government should do something to solve this problem. "Subsidi kurang, pembangunan lebih" where's the lebih part???

QUEEN

Image2Yesterday, I was quite bored and deicided to called up pakcik salleh to hang around. We went minum outside and have some conversation. As usual, music will be our main topic. I played the Queen CD using my CD player and on the way back pakcik noticed the songs and started to talk about it. I said it was Queen and after reached his home, he asked me to burn another CD for him and i just gave him the copy inside my CD player...
Lately i've been listening Queen's track quite alot as you probably notice on your right hand side, Queen hits the 2nd place on the overall chart. Yeah, it's a great british rock band with freddy mercury as their frontman and Brian May touched up the songs with some brilliant guitar works. They really produced a quality songs. If you guys haven't listened up to their songs, just download some of their song. I would recommend Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy little thing called love and Don't stop me now.

The Pirate Bay Is Back Online


Image 


ok... Last Wednesday day the pirate bay was rushed by a bunch of retarded swedish policeman and causing the site to be temporarily shut-down. They promised to fix everything within a few days and now the site is upped again. They did keep their promise. They shift down to netherlands and continue its operation there as usual. The pirate bay is one of my favourite torrent site and I am glad to hear them up again.

Some people said that TPB is totally legal since it does not create all those file. Other people did and they just act as the tracker and server. The concept is more or less like google. Sometimes people search, it does lead to some copyrighted materials, but nobody blame google and said it infringe the copyright law. Hurm.. i guess this makes sense. So, for the torrent users out there, let us download whatever we wish to!

Paranormal

It`s the world`s first ghost detector with built-in USB memory.

Whenever a paranormal event occurs, it is said that there`s a slight variation in the magnetic field. The GhostRadar USB drive detects these physical changes, so that ghosts (unknown bodies of energy) can be detected. In order to boost the accuracy of detection, a bio-clock is built-in with criterion for time elements for repetitive paranormal activity such as the witching hour, new moon and full moon. When a ghost is detected, sounds will play plus patterns from a 16 light LED display will flash. There`s also an attachable protective amulet when for the magnetic field
sensor.

The GhostRadar comes in two colors, black and white. There are three sizes of built-in memory: 128MB, 256MB and 512MB.

*This is a toy for amusement only. This product does not actually detect ghosts.*

Ermmm... Ghost detector??? Check it out more here. Talking about this paranormal and ghost thing, i remembered i watched a talkshow - 'Tanya Linda' episode "hantu". There's a paranormal researcher Syed Abdullah Al-Attas or his nickname - uncle. It was an interesting episode where uncle like firing the other two panel, Dato' Dr. Fadzilah Kamsah and Lionel Tey. In the end, uncle was fired back by this two panel. Below is the clip of the series but the full version will be more interesting.

ZEN AURVANA


Ehh.. this is not an MP3 player??? Ok... This is the new earphone by Creative, AURVANA. For more info visit here. Looks nice. I like it, but unfortunately my birthday already past. I can't 'paw' anybody for it using birthday present as the reason. In-Ear Earphone. Means that cannot share la, unless if you don't mind sharing all the taik telinga.

Hurm... today, I went to submit a CD to Mr. Pau Kiu Nai, went to Cubic to submit my resume, (i thaught there's a walk-in interview, but the guy there ask me to go back and wait for the phone call if my name were shortlisted. Dorang ni macam keling la... Nemind la.. penat jek aku cuak2) and then i straight away went to Public Mutual to register as unit trust agent, unfortunately i forgot to bring my photostate of Maybank account, and i have no sijil SPM. They don't accept SPM slip. Haiya... If Mr Bali (my x-school principal) just post to me the other day, I wont have this kind of trouble. Well, thanks alot!

Hurm... I've uploaded some pictures to my flickr. flickr is better than fotopages (to me) i guess. In terms of speed flicker is faster, fotopages like thousands of people using it. Some more I don't really like uploading all pictures at once, like fotopages (got album n stuff) instead i like to upload whenever i like randomly (not sure if you guys get my point or not - Gomenasai!). Flickr is just perfect for me. Will update more often. Hurmm... And i'll add it on the link beside, right after this ok?

Err... typical malay

I just got a fwd msg from YM just now. Since I got nothing better to do, I just opened up the page. Here's the page:
http://www.bolt.com/seekers/video/1114065
The title was "siti speaking london" and clearly from the video, Siti was like kinda mixing with some of malay words. Hurmmm... And I do believe this video was uploaded by a malay guy. The motive was to embrace this poor siti, from the title given. Hey, what's wrong with her speaking english? at least she tried. Typical malay, when their own race tried something, and not perfect enough then people will start talking bout it.

I'm not sure whether u guys noticed this or not. when a malay talk english, and it sound malay slang "dis thing kenot la", suddenly people will start saying, giler ahh!! bunyik melayu. But when chinese say something which sound chinese... "He always like that maaa..." nobody's bothered. When Indian says "dey, don'd do that(d) la machaaa..." also nobody bothered. Hurm... yeah.. typical malay.

Space Cop Gaban!!! and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Yesterday, while searching what file to download, i found one link for Gaban and Suria Perkasa Hitam theme song. I don't know about you guys, but i am really really fanatic about this two super hero during my primary school before they showed ultraman Ace on the TV. Really make me wanted to laugh when i'm thinking bout my past life... Haha!! masa budak2 mmg bangang (some did said that i am still bangang up to this moment). But whatever... If you wanted to listen to gaban theme song in midi format, you may visit this site. or if you wanted the full mp3 song you can try search at torrent malaya website. Alternatively, you may come to my house (I'm not sure where my next house will be) and you can bring your thumb drive to copy all together 4 files. Hoping to download some of the series but i don't think it's possible, since I don't think anybody in malaysia recording the series, or if somebody did, probably the tape is already full with all those cendawan and kulat!

The other day i downloaded series of Teenage mutant ninja turtles (episode 1 and 2). These episodes were the episode that a wish I could watch during my younger ages, becoz I missed the earlier episode and I wonder how the mutants change themselves. Thanks to every party who created all this new technologies. But today's episode of Teenage mutant ninja turtle was really dissapoint me. They don't look cute anymore, instead they look Tagap2 and really crappy. Hoh... They vanished all the feels of how ninja turtles supposed to be.

RM2.20 pulak

Hurm.. yesterday while i clean up my house (we are about getting to move from this house), then i decided to sell all my notes and a few megazine such as going places (MAS airline punya mags and some old CHIPS megazine (where i find that the content no more relevant with today's technology). So I collected about 22kg of papers, including a few grams of newspapers (yeah... i don't really read papers). Guess how much i recieved from the apek??? Oh! I forgot i already tell earlier on the title column... Yeah.. RM2.20 only??? 10c per kilo. Dah tu, sume pun dia tanya, ni taknak jual, tu taknak jual? including my Zildjian 16" crash where already cracked. "ini besi maaa..." kepala hotak ko! asal besi jek nak jual la... tu keta aku kat depan taknak tanya nak jual!!??? dah la bagi RM2.20 jek!

He must've made alot of money by selling back all those papers back. Hurmm.. but nevermind la, since i also planned to throw away all those notes and outdated megazine, he actually made my life easier.

Light Of The Moon

Light Of The Moon

Verse1-
She never knew how cold it gets
alone in a city she never will forget
As tears seem to fall like lead
into his silent and empty bed

They were never meant to be alone
in two cities they never could call home
And all his letters she holds to her breast
So his words she could breathe into herself, and they said…

Chorus-
We could go live in the city down under
where all the sunshine and people are good
And the melodies flow in rainbows of colors
And we'll dance in the silvery light of the moon
We could be drinking the light of the moon...

Verse2-
Without him the days are dark
she can't see the sunrise or even the stars
he stands through her picture frame
Remembering her laughing while running in the rain

And he regrets the things he said
They broke her down, the day that she left
But life's too precious to let it slip away
And now her message is clear as a bell, and it says….

Chorus-
We could go live in the city down under
where all the sunshine and people are good
And the melodies flow in rainbows of colors
And we'll dance in the silvery light of the moon
We could be drinking the light of the moon...
