矜持

今天终于把车驾去了女王湾购物中心的卡士汽车保养所打蜡, 过程需要3小时, 所以就跑去了星巴克上网混时间.

原本就只是专注的在微软信使和美女聊天, 根本没注意到隔壁座来了2位女生, 估计是学生妹. 其实我也没去注意她们, 也没有去偷听她们到底在聊些什么, 只是其中1位说了一句对我耳朵造成巨大震撼性的话, 让我无法不对它印象深刻.

I finally drove my car to CAR's at Queensbay today for waxing, the whole process required 3 hours, so to kill time, I went to Starbucks to go online.

Initially I was just using MSN Messenger to chat with pretty girl, I didn't realize there were 2 girls seated at the table beside me, by their looks I suppose they are student girls. Actually I didn't even pay attention to them, nor did I eavesdrop on what they were talking about, just that 1 of the girls blurted out a statement that has a profound impact on my ears, such that it was impossible for it not to register in my mind.

"臭鸡掰! 这样做我女孩子的矜持不是没有了咯!"
(Chao ji bai! Do like this, my female reservation is gone lo!)

我感觉到有股冲动想要转过头去安慰她说: "别担心, 你原本就没有"

不过我当然没有这么做. 我不是"八瓜" 的本质...

I was tempted to turn my head over and assure her: "Don't worry, you don't have any to begin with."

But of course, I didn't. I'm not inherently busybody...

Appreciation Lunch @ US Pizza

Every year end is the time where all the Jusco stores in Malaysia will have the Back To School fair, this includes the one at Bandar Perda in Penang.

It is also the time of the year where my dad grows older much more quickly due to the inability to find promoters to work.

I will always try to help him to search for suitable candidates, this year however, I have a very good helper.

You see, my dad doesn't pay me for my trying to help him, so it would be weird if I were to pay my helper for her help, so instead, I brought her out for lunch as a token of appreciation.

Venue is US Pizza @ Green Lane. It is a small scale, cosy, and highly localized pizzeria, and the best part is, you can only find this eatery in Penang, KL does not have it.


The helper mentioned is known as Cili Padi, and due to her helpful nature, also known as Angel.


This place has buy one free one promotion every Tuesday, but it will be packed to the full on that day and the dining experience will be bad, so we decided to go today. After all, wanna show appreciation cannot be kiam siap about promotions right?

We ordered the Value Set for 2. Actually I don't know whether this is the name for the set or not, I just made the name up, it's just a set meal that serves 2 person.

It comes with Malaysian-ized American Iced Tea,


4 pieces Cinnamon Bread Stix (which I forgot to capture the photo of),

A regular sized Malaysian-ized pizza (9 inches), we ordered the Ocean Delight.


Actually is Ocean something la, I'm not sure is it Ocean Delight or something else, forgot to pay attention to the menu...

6 pieces Malaysian-ized New York Wings.


At RM33++, it is not exactly the cheapest pizza meal we can get, but... but... just look at the toppings on the pizza... sorry to say this but Pizza Hut and Domino's are absolutely pawned!

A good day out for lunch this is... today being Friday makes it much better too... and of course going out with a girl makes it even much much betterer lah, as always...

Today is Friday right? I know tomorrow no need to work :P

Joining the Android Gang

One year and one week after I bought my Samsung J800, exactly when the warranty became void, my phone decided that it hates my voice and the microphone died on me.

I couldn't send the phone back to the factory to get it fixed for free, and to be perfectly honest the phone hasn't been one of my better phone purchases anyway, so I decided to have revenge by just buying a new phone...

A better phone...

A phone that is the nemesis of Apple, a phone with Android...

This phone:


HTC Wildfire, the cheapest of the Android phones on offer from HTC, at a retail price of RM1199.


The second cheapest HTC Android phone is the Aria, which retails at RM1799. The Aria is actually just a phone that has a slightly bigger screen and a slightly faster processor but much much more expensive than the Wildfire, so I think I made a good choice here...


Many people asked me: "Why not take the package from Maxis?"


My answer would be: I'm paying RM30/month for my phone bill right now, if I took the package from Maxis, I would be paying RM600 less for the phone, but RM68 more every month for 2 years.


Not a good deal if you ask me. I mean, yeah I know that I would get the data plan with unlimited internet usage, which if I don't have, my phone would be rubbish.

And I don't care, because I plan to use my phone as a phone with slightly more apps than a normal phone and can get online at wi-fi spots.


For example, this app...


The camera is not that great though, never been a powerful feature of HTC anyway, 5MP camera takes picture of this quality...


I've got my Powershot A3000IS to take care of my quality photography needs though (I mean my needs here, not the needs of some pros or DSLR wannabes)...

And hopefully this Android phone is more durable than the tantrum throwing Samsung...

Rainy...

When I was studying in college, I did not have a car, I spent a large chunk of my time commuting back and forth between home and campus in buses and trains, and this involves a lot of walking as well.

Being in Malaysia, of course we would expect rain at the most unexpected circumstances, for example when I forgot to bring my umbrella. 9 out of 10 times that I forgot to bring my umbrella, it would rain.

And not only will it rain, it will rain at spot on timing, when I just left the campus walking towards to train station, or when I just got off the bus walking back home. As a result, I've had my fair share of time being a sakai, soaked in the rain.

Because of this too, I've trained my body to be immune to the negative effects of rain a.k.a fever, flu, running nose and stuff. I would be able to walk in constant rain for 10-15 minutes and not fall sick.

I've just had about 30 seconds under a slight drizzle a couple of days back, I think I'm beginning to feel the effect today. I've been feeling cold all day and I don't feel much strength in my body.

It's been more than 3 years since I left college, I might have lost that bit of rain resistivity...

Or is it just due to the fact that I'm not getting any younger getting old already?
