Recenly I watched a bit of American Idol. Not bad.. not bad.. a few links by The Boss:

This one by Willy:

Renaldo Lapuz’s Audition

Now for some football:

Kaka being a good role model..

Now for some politics:

Learn about this Hannah Yeoh for Subang Jaya!

I think I failed pretty badly. I wasn’t properly prepared. By theory it was supposed to be smooth sailing, but I forgot about preparing the mental and spiritual aspect of things. Such a fool!

I have lost it. I had it a while. Now I lost it. Hope to get it back soon. Back to basics..

Men Are Just Happier People – What do you expect from such simple creatures? Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack. You can be President. You can never be pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water park. Car mechanics tell you the truth. The world is your urinal. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky. You don’t have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. Wedding dress $5000. Tux rental-$100. People never stare at your chest when you’re talking to them. New shoes don’t cut, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood all the time. !

Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about tanks. A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend.

Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough. You almost never have strap problems in public. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes. Everything on your face stays its original color. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You only have to shave your face and neck.

You can play with toys all your life. One wallet and one pair of shoes — one color for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can “do” your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache.

You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25 minutes.

No wonder men are happier.


Currently listening to Alicia Keys. Again. She’s definitely one of my favourite artists. Another great role model for us kids 😉

Reading that Tuesdays with Morrie book I “borrowed” from Stupid really blessed me. It kinda refreshes my perspectives in life. It is very reassuring and comes at the perfect moment when I am starting to second guess some of my “principles”in life. Arigatou gozaimasu Goddo~

Hmm.. life..

Something I enjoyed very much and always wanted to do.. was learning to play mah jong!! I learned the feat from the great sifu Jack at Chin’s house, which I finally found after having another tour de Puchong. The other players helped too.. especially MoJo-jojo who was very patient with us n00bs and also contributed a bit to our cause 😉

I love CNY visitations.

I think I appreciate the CNY season a bit more this year, as it gives an excellent excuse and time frame to call out old friends you rarely see to sit down and have nice conversations with. I will definitely be looking forward to this little window of opportunity next year. More fun to come next week!

More fun from the BBC:

Another WHAT-IF question:- “What if I had a Brazilian name?”
Get your Brazilian name here with your free national kit 🙂

This is a bunch of Dutch Pop Idol losers singing at half time at a football match. As with all other things in this post: it’s not new, but never old.

More of Alvin’s Mystical Visions on Facebook.

Milliz on MySpace – Erin passed me this link after I mentioned I like Colbie Caillat. Not bad.. for local dudes 🙂

Local billboard hero – another local dude .. being a hero! R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

My office is quite happening, with so many girls receiving bouquets of flowers on Valentine’s day. Evidently, I had my share of cupcakes and jigsaw puzzles this Valentines. A simple dinner at the Jon-sanctioned Noodlestation was great.. el fresco in the moonlight beside a lamp post (literally).

It is weird how I talk a bit more about “girls” with other guys recently. I have dropped that topic off my list for years! Oh well, I guess I’ll talk a bit more about it here too 😛

Sorry, you poor souls will now have to live with this (just as I have lived with some of yours -vomits-) .. MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!

So my holiday has ended 😦

I missed the food.. Chinese, western, everything! The weirdest thing I ate this year was seahorses. Yes, how in the world do we eat seahorses? They have sharp little spikes on their skin which.. don’t go down too well. I Googled, Wiki-ed, but got no answers. Bleugh..


At least the holidays ended with a bang on Tuesday! I played badminton in the morning, Black Jack in the noon, logged (a type of jogging) in the evening, futsal at night, and yamcha-ed at midnight. The best part is I had fun in every one of those activities with different friends 😀 Woke up with a sore body the next day tho.. and getting myself to work was beyond difficult.

I have been re-downloading many old songs, which I deleted from my PC at one point. I used to have a DELETE EVERYTHING mentality. But now I guess I’ve learned to treasure that part of my past.

The songs which really bring back the most memories and emotions are the ones I don’t hear anymore.. mainly Chinese songs. Emo Chinese songs always get me – no matter how my musical tastes evolve.

Best newcomer: Colbie Caillat with her album Coco

My movie, music, and even game tastes has evolved enormously caused by various factors. Sometimes it affects me that I lost the ability to enjoy what I used to. But I guess that’s life. There’s plenty more where that came from!

Recent favourite movie : Stardust. Watched it at Tim Goh’s house for our TRU special thingy and I think everyone loved that show. Oh yeah, we had a splendid time there too 🙂
