I read this interesting article from The Sun on either the 9th or 10th, August 2006. Here you go.
A woman patron beats up a staff of Rising Sun Anger Release Bar in eastern Chinse City of Nanjing, The new bar lets customers an unusual outlet for their anger and frustration - by allowing them to use the workers as punching bags. In addition to getting a drink, one can also pay money to smash glasses, shout and scream.Wow. This is so cool! I wonder how would Malaysians react to this kinda bars. One thing I am afraid will be the workers are punched dead. Hahaha. And BTW, I think you might have heard of the HK's 'Bus Uncle' incident where it happened on a bus. This unnamed uncle was talking on the phone loud in a bus, and this young guy sitting behind him can't stand his volume talking on the phone thus pat on his shoulder. The uncle got furious about it and had an arguement with the young guy and it was recorded by a student using SE W800i (Hey! Thats my phone! keke!). The whole clip was about 5 mins long and it was posted on YouTube and it was so popular in HK until it was reported as news. It has been diagnosed as HKies are in stress. Well, I think all people living on earth now are stressful! Unless those real calm and serene guy, like those practising Buddhism or other related spiritual teachings. Until recently there is a lot of clips shown on YouTube shot in Malaysia showing people in stress. So, I guess a bar like this would help reducing this kind of problems. Hehe.

I'm sure you might have read this in some forwarded mail, but I would like to repost it here.
One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?" "It was great, Dad." "Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked. "Oh yeah," said the son. "So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father. The son answered: "I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them." The boy's father was speechless. Then his son added, "Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are."Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have. Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends! Pass this on to friends and acquaintances and help them refresh their perspective and appreciation.

My sister is getting more and more beautiful. She was getting ready for her dance competition. Was trying on clothes for her competition. I was around her room and she asked me some questions. As she came out of her room, I looked at her. So beautiful. In my eyes, she has never been this beautiful. She starts to have mesmerising touch in her. I was kind of a bad brother. Yes as I recall back. I did not treat her that well. Was still a sister, but I kept bulling her. As all brothers will. Until I met Joshikun, he had a sister of my sister age as well! I could tell, he care for his sister a lot. Then I start to think. I thought, my sister deserves the same as well, after so long I have been ignorant to her. Started treating her good since last year. Our relationship improved. We talked more, we shared more. But I still feels something is lacking. She is not that femenine. Until today, the mesmerising feeling, I can tell, she is getting beautiful. Her hair was dry jz now, I offered to wash her hair. Yup, I did. Washed her hair like how saloon does, then I applied conditioner. We chatted a lot as well. Hehe... She looks great after that! I can't wait for tomorrow where she is dressed for the competition. Hope I can see her in the competition. PS: Dont think I'm dying k? Tmr I have test and i might miss her show. =p

"Thump~~~~~~~~~" That's what you will hear when 8TV runs LOST's commercials. It feels, scary, empty and... LOST... That's what I feel nowadays. Not only just watching Lost. And dang it cause they still have not finish by season 2. Why do I say I feel LOST? Well, I haven't been doing too well in my AdvDip year. Losing out among my coursemates... Didn't really do my tutorials... Skipping all the tutorials and having the stupid procastinating nature is killing me softly. Lost as in, I do not know, how to get myself into working mode & mood. Aih... Help please? Assignment will due in few days time, exam will due in few weeks time... Will I have enough time to study? I guess I'd better stop all online activity and finish my maths tutorials for tomorrow... T.T
An-nyo!! There has been a long time since I have ever blogged. Well, not too long, a few weeks thou. Haha. Lets see what to update. Got my new laptop. An Acer Aspire 5540 series. It has a 2 brains at the solving speed of 1.6GHz (well, this is kinda low-end nowadays), a 14.1" WXGA CrystalBrite LCD screen, an Intel Graphic Media Accelerator 950, a 60GB HDD of unknown brand, a DVD/CD-RW combo, 1GB DDR2 RAM, and of course it comes with WiFi accessibility. It is always good to have a computer. I guess I'll just focus on the bad points. The 'CrystalBrite' technology does not amase me that well. It gives a glossy finish on the LCD screen and makes it looks like a mirror when it is showing dark images, for example, in movies. The screen is extreamly reflective and it kinda gives an eyesore if you were to use it for a long time. Hoping to get a screen protector without glossy feeling on it. It still worth with the myr 3k. Was very busy with my assignments back then, especially during world cup season. I have to pass up 5 assignments in 7 days, each day with 1 day in break in between, where I stayed up till 5am in the morning just to finish the assignment. Thanks to my procastinating nature. Managed to pass them up, but as always, if I could have put more effort in DOING my assignment rather than doing SOMETHING esle... I could have flared better. Got addicted in watching 'Lost'. I am at season 2 now. Damn syok watching it. I just found something unbelievable on the net. Wikipedia has an article on the whole story including the casts, and a synopsis on every episode, plus all the spoilers, with additional untold details. Still same old messy table where I place my laptop on it. Now come with a table fan just to blow on my laptop to keep it cool, a 15" LG Studioworks 500G as an additional monitor which my cousin have not claim it back, and whole lot of messy items around it. How am I going to study in these place?! It is so not a study environment. I NEED TO CHANGE! So, it's sales time now rite? I shall shop for furniture soon. Hmm, should I do it before or after my exam? Hmm... big question XD
