Quote of the week - so far la!

“If I just leave the party now, the party will go into disarray. It is not that I’m going to be there for 100 years. I don’t (think I can) live for 100 years. Everybody’s time to go will come,” he said....aka Samy

Watch Out Samy!

Land of Kimchi

"Choka" was the first thing I checked Terence and maybe Prem met someone whom he though was from Korea because apparently it's not what we thought it was.Anyway, the internet is pretty speedy here and I will sms you my Skype id strictly used for family matters and that's why you don't see me online.Then again, you guys are family to me.Anyway, won't anyone post something on the buzz of the election fever in Malaysia?I feel like i am missing out big time on the mud slinging scene man.

Today I saw two images that tickled me, first this restaurant serving all things Pork that has a mascot that looks like Kim Jong II of North Korea ...I confirmed it with a Korean colleague and he said it was intentional indeed.

Second, an odd name for a pack of cigarette or maybe an accurate one as you smoke & burn the "time" you have on earth away.


The temperature is below zero almost all the days I have been here and it's windy.I enjoy the food here but also must add that like Japan the price is expensive.My daily meals can come up to RM100-RM120 per day but please take into consideration that when you roll with Japs they always want beer and good food.I find Korea something like China yet progressive like Japan but FYI, I still love Japan more.
The latest hairstyle trend in Korea is the "mangkuk" haircut and almost all the teens look like they stepped out of a mental asylum but what do I know about fashion because I am still rocking my "jambul" since 1986.

New toy review

Technically there was no need for a new phone and my N70 was rock solid but the contract was almost up and it's pretty normal in Singapore for the network provider to "invite" you for a new contract extension and in this case it was a $200 voucher and since I've got some loyalty points or something that can be converted to cash,I got the N95 8GB under $200.The reason I chose this particular phone was for 3 reasons only.

1.It's 5 megapixel camera allows me to snap pics of the kids without having to run for my bulky Canon all the time.The pics are pretty decent.

2. The 3.5mm headphone jack for my music on the go when I travel.

3. Wifi connectivity.Period!

Here's the review from C-net

Sounds from Windows 98+XP= I am pleasantly suprised!!

Those annoying windows sound doesn't sound so bad when you compose something like this eh?Anyway, I am freezing my !@#$ in Daegu,Korea and will post some pics when I have a chance.

Martin breaks it down and the message hits home.

In his Christmas message of 2007 he would call on Malaysians to move forward and put the country’s interest before any “narrowly-defined demands”. He would then be so “narrow-minded” as to ban the use of the word “Allah” by those of non-Muslim faiths, and its use in the Herald, a Catholic weekly!

Anwar Ibrahim provides a good comment on Pak Lah’s track record in this regard: “The ruling BN coalition is appealing to Muslim sentiment to reinforce its support in elections which could come in March…Malaysia’s problem is not radicalism…The real issue is what I would describe as state-sponsored Muslim puritanism more by racist sentiments than religious principles.”

Have a prosperous year of The Rat

Here's wishing everyone a prosperous Chinese New Year.I know the economic outlook isn't rosy but that doesn't mean we should scurry away squeaking ...rather go get the cheese y'all.Let this Doritos commercial shown during the Superbowl in the US be a warning to those who wants to mess with those born in the year of the rat.

Wikipedia :
Being the first sign of the Chinese zodiacs, rats are leaders, pioneers and conquerors. They are charming, passionate, charismatic, practical and hardworking. Rat people are endowed with great leadership skills and are the most highly organized, meticulous, and systematic of the twelve signs. Intelligent and cunning at the same time, rats are highly ambitious and strong-willed people who are keen and unapologetic promoters of their own agendas, which often include money and power. They are energetic and versatile and can usually find their way around obstacles, and adapt to various environments easily. A rat's natural charm and sharp demeanor make it an appealing friend for almost anyone, but rats are usually highly exclusive and selective when choosing friends and so often have only a few very close friends whom they trust.

Behind the smiles and charm, rats can be terribly obstinate and controlling, insisting on having things their way no matter what the cost. These people tend to have immense control of their emotions, which they may use as a tool to manipulate and exploit others, both emotionally and mentally. Rats are masters of mind games and can be very dangerous, calculative and downright cruel if the need arises. Quick-tempered and aggressive, they will not think twice about exacting revenge on those that hurt them in any way. Rats need to learn to relax sometimes, as they can be quite obsessed with detail, intolerant and strict, demanding order, obedience, and perfection.

Rats consider others before themselves, at least sometimes, and avoid forcing their ideas onto others. Rats are fair in their dealings and expect the same from others in return, and can be deeply affronted if they feel they have been deceived or that their trust has been abused. Sometimes they set their targets too high, whether in relation to their friends or in their career. But as the years pass, they will become more idealistic and tolerant. If they can develop their sense of self and realize it leaves room for others in their life as well, Rats can find true happiness.

According to tradition, Rats often carry heavy karma and at some point in life may face an identity crisis or some kind of feeling of guilt. Rats are said to often have to work very long and hard for everything they may earn or have in life. However, a Rat born during the day is said to have things a bit easier than those who are born at night. Traditionally, Rats born during the night may face extreme hardships and suffering throughout life. Rats in general should guard themselves against hedonism, as it may lead to self-destruction. Gambling, alcohol and drugs tend to be great temptations to Rat natives.

Traditionally, Rats should avoid Horses, but they can usually find their best friends and love interests in Monkeys, Dragons, and Oxen.
