Been very pressured in my work lately. It is neither because the tasks are difficult to handle nor I do not know how to do it. It is the P-E-O-P-L-E problem that made me feel so pressured. I always have this kind of feeling that my @$$hole PM is always picking on me. Whatever things that he asked me to do, will never meet his requirements eventhough I followed as what he told me. One major problem with this @$$hole is that he's so long-winded. He can keep nagging and nagging you the same thing over and over again without getting tired or thirsty. This @$$hole has some Psychology problem or have permanent head damaged because he just loves to bully the junior like me. I'm not the first one who kena from him before. As far as I know, two of my colleagues who joined as Associate Consultant kena from him before as well. The reason why he likes to bully the junior is because he's an @$$hole. When the bosses are around, he dares not to speak, not even one word. Still remember that we had a gathering last Friday in the office. Everyone was so busy catching up with each other as we hardly see each other once we're out to a project. This is the only time we can catch up. Pity one talked with him. No one dare to stand next to him. No one even knew what time he left. This shows that no one would even bother to talk with him. Why no one wants to talk with him? There must be something wrong somewhere. There are around 30 people in my office, 29 people didn't want to talk with him (another one is himself). Was it our problem or was it his problem? I guess it must be his face-problem (I would called that "yeung sui") and the worst is his attitude problem. Doesn't he feel that he's an @$$hole? Doesn't he feel lonely when everyone was laughing here and there and busy talking with each other, while he was standing there eating the KFC all by himself? Why does he want to make himself to be so unpopular and being hated by everyone? One more thing about this @$$hole is he doesn't know what to say at the right time. He always thinks that he's very cool for speaking out something and always thinks that the advices he gave are very good. Excuse me, you don't have the right to tell me what is right and what is wrong. As long as I did my part, as long as I managed to finish the thing before the deadline, then everything will be fine. Why do you always want people to argue with you first then only you accept people's opinion?
One thing that made me very "tu lan" on last few days was, he was trying to put all the responsibility on me so that whatever things go wrong, I can be the one who to be blamed. Luckily, I took a step behind. I pushed back all the responsibility to him. Just told him that I know nothing about the dot-matrix, I can't make any decision for the customer on which dot-matrix printer to buy. Whatever he said, I just said 'No, I'm not gonna responsible for that" or "I don't know anything about this." Finally I won in this war. He was very reluctant to say that "Ok, I'll take accountability for this." I don't care where you want to be accountable for this or not, as long as I'm not involved with this will be fine with me. He's the PM for this project, he has to make the decision. Why did he want me to make the decision? If I can make the decision, why do we still need a PM anymore in a project? Doesn't it make sense? I would called that "irresponsible @$$hole PM." One golden phrase from him is "I don't know". What the heck, if I know the things that I asked, why do I still need to ask him? And he's the PM of the project, he's the middleman between the project team and the customer. If I were not to ask him, who should I ask?
Arrghhh...I'm really angry with this @$$hole. He is sick. He has mental problem. He is something wrong somewhere. Help me! Someone please help me!

Life is bored. Life is bored especially when you have to face the person that you don't wish to see everyday. Can you imagine how much I hate this person till I can curse him to die? Can you imagine that? This is the first time I hate someone until this level. He really drives me crazy. I'll be very angry when someone mentions about his name in front of me. How can there be such an idiot still exist in this world nowadays? How can? I thought I'm the only one who hate him so much. It turns out that the whole team of people hate him as much as I do. How can someone made himself so "hak yan zhang"? How can someone made himself so "yeung sui"? Do you know everyone hates you? Do you realise that? I thought everyone wants to be "liked", he's the first person I know that loves to be hated. OH MY GOD! What the heck is going on? What's on earth is going on now?
Aiii...please get me out of here. I don't want to be here anymore. I don't know how long more I can "tahan". I don't know what will I do to him? He really makes me mad. I've been cursing him to dead. I've even been thinking of hiring an Indonesian guy with RM30 and sodomised him. OH NO! NO! NO! Don't force me to do this, please! "If possible, please try to use a paper bag to cover your face and seal up your mouth. Please don't come and disturb me when I don't disturb you. You do your own things and I do mine. The world will be very peaceful when you're not around. Do you know that? Everyone will be partying and will be able to finish up the jobs very fast when you're around. Please make yourself invisible, if possible please don't turn up. We really don't mind you don't do your work. Really! No kidding. "

Story of the 'far, far, away terminal'


Read this forwarded email and find it is quite true when we actually have a deep thought about it. Are we going forward or moving backward now?

Ten years ago in Kuala Lumpur, when you had to fly to a domestic destination, you traveled 30 minutes toSubang Airport, where you left from the 1954-styleterminal where you had to go out on the tarmac in the rain and climb up a staircase to get on the plane. Then, the government built a multi-billion ringgit global hub terminal 75 minutes away from KL withworld-class everything. Then, they built a high-speed rail connection so it takes only 30 minutes to get there. Despite this, the global hub terminal remains a deserted ghost-town with far more gate capacity than flights. AirAsia then starts up. Everyone can fly and the global hub terminal begins to come to life. So the government decides to build AirAsia far, far away terminal at the other end of the airport, one that replicates the old 1954-style terminal. It doesn'tconnect to the high-speed train. Then, almost all domestic flights are shifted over to AirAsia. So now you have to take a 75 minute bus ride to the far, far away terminal and walk out in the rain and climb the stairs just like back in 1954, while the global hub terminal is once again deserted. Oh, and if you need to transfer from an overseas flight to a domestic flight, you have to take a half-an-hour bus ride from the global hub terminal to the far, far away terminal. Is this back to the future or back to the past? Or is it just 'terminal stupidity'?

Story of NOT mine!


Just sent my brother, sis-in-law and cid-cey-ceow (niece) to LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal aka Air Asia's airport). They were boarding on the 1.40pm flight to Bangkok. My brother will be coming back on this Friday while my sis-in-law and cid-cey-ceow will be staying in Bangkok until 13th July. Some of you must be wondering, why both of them are staying in Bangkok for so long while my brother has to come back here first. The reason behind this is because:-

My brother has to come back to Ipoh to help my father to do the "business". My father has to work on his own for this Tuesday and Wednesday. There is no way my brother can leave Ipoh for such a long period.

My sis-in-law is from Thailand, in case you don't know. That means she's going back to "hometown" to visit her family. She only goes back to Thailand once a year, that's why she's staying in Bangkok for such a long period.

I'm kinda regret for not following them to Bangkok this time. Indeed it's a very good chance to go there. It's because, firstly, I could save on the airplane ticket as I booked the tickets for my brother when Air Asia was giving out 2million tickets for free end of last year. I should have booked the tickets for myself as well. All I need to pay was the fuel charges and the airport tax which added up together is around RM150 for return tickets. Good deal, huh? Secondly, if I were to go with them, I could save on the accommodation as well. That's because my sis-in-law has a sister whom is staying in Bangkok. Well, at least I can tumpang the place as well if I were there. Thirdly, since my sis-in-law is there, it's alot more easier to bargain when I shop. Still remember the time when I went to Hatyai with her along. I didn't have to bargain, she did all the talking and ended up I bought all cheap stuff and ate all the authentic Thai food. Never mind, guess there will be more chances to come. Guess my brother will be going back...hmmm, I'm using "going back" instead of "going" to describe my brother's visitation to Thailand now. Anyway, I guess my brother will be going back to Thailand at least once a year. I missed the "flight" this time, guess I can catch another "flight" next year. Save more $$$ and everywhere in the world is just a flight away. M-O-N-E-Y is very I-M-P-O-R-T-A-N-T.

It is raining like cats and dogs now. It has been raining everyday since the first day I came to Instacom here. I don't know how heavy the rain is actually but it sounded very heavy when the rain drops hit the roof, so I pressumed it is raining heavily.
Talking about rain, it reminds me of another "Rain". This is not the rain that we all know, he's Rain from Korea. My sister is very crazy over him now. It is all because of him she started to catch the Korean dramas. It is all because of him she started to attend Korean language class. It is all because of him she started to plan to work in Korea. Oh gosh, what is so attractive with this Rain? To me, he is not handsome at all. Ok, I got to admit that he's kinda good in dancing but his dancing style is more a less the same. If compared to other singers like Usher, I think he's still way too behind them.

Chapter T-W-O


A new chapter of my life is about to begin. As I mentioned in one of my post, I recalled that I talked about being an adult. What do I mean by being an adult? You're treated as an adult by your parents when you have started to work, when you don't ask pocket money from them anymore. My adulthood started last August when I just started to work as a Basis CONsultant. It's actually kinda hard to be an adult, it's not because you have to work or you don't get pocket money from your parents. It's because you will have more and more commitments and the burden is getting heavier and heavier as time goes by. Since the government declared an increase of 30cents per litre of fuel in last March, I'm sure it caused a big problem to everyone especially to those who have to travel around like me. Another hectic arose when the government declared an increase in the electricity bill last month. I wonder what else is going to increase for the coming 6 months before we end the year of 2006. Oh yeah, even the parking rate in my office increased as well from RM5 per day to RM8 per day. It's really causing a big hectic to everyone.
Oh yeah, talking about new chapter of life. What do I mean by new chapter? Actually this new chapter is more on commitment than any other things. The first commitment that I had to take after being an "adult" was pocket money for my parents. As I mentioned in one of my post, I talked about giving ang pow to my parents on the Chinese New Year. Guess this would be the first thing that everyone has to go through after started to work.
The second chapter would be buying an insurance policy for yourself. I'm about to step into this new chapter soon. I might be a little bit late for considering this now, but the reason why I only decide to get an insurance policy for myself now is because of hmm...income tax I think. Though the salary that I'm getting now still at a non-taxable level, but maybe in the next 6 months time, it could be taxable. Who knows? I'm sure everyone knows that it's better to get an insurance policy as soon as possible as it's cheaper when you purchase it young. I just turned 24 last month, but I'm treated as 25 by the insurance company as my birthday had already past. Been "consulted" by one of Faye's friend last night about the Investment Link Plan from Great Eastern. Friends told me to consult from other insurance companies first before deciding which company to buy, but to me, every insurance company is more a less the same. I'm really not sure what kind of policy that I want as I know nothing about insurance.
To be honest, insurance is not really important to me. But it's already part of everyone's life. It's like you can't survive without it. I actually had a very bad impression on insurance because I remembered my dad used to buy some insurance policies for my brother, sister and I. My dad paid the money to the insurance agent every month and did not ask for receipts as he trusted the agent. But few months later, the insurance company sent a letter to my dad saying that my dad never pay the money. From then on, my father had stopped the policies and that actually caused a very bad impression of insurance to me. But technology changed the world, everyone owns a credit card. So there is no worries on being cheated by the insurance agent anymore. Anyway, I'm still deciding which company to choose from. Anyone has any good suggestions? Suggestions are always welcome.
I wonder what will be my Chapter Three? Buying a new car? Getting a dream house? Getting married? Giving birth? Just wait for my Chapter Three then... :)

FIFA World Cup 2006!


FIFA world cup..........once every 4 years.It seems that many football pundits on these days. Those who don't even know anyone in this game besides David Bechkam are now talking about team strategies ??? Wow I guess this is really world cup fever. During this month, football results will be the main conversation topic everywhere. I mean can you imagine someone who can't even tell the difference between EPL and SPL is analyzing match results ??? Well this only happens every 4 years.
As for me.....I was wondering how much do I know about football. Erm nothing much I guess, however to me football certainly means more than 22 players chasing the same ball ! But till now I still can't tell what's offside and whats onside. I guess many ppl don't know either so I am not that bad.
So it's ur turn......can you name all the 32 teams in this years world cup ? Erm can you also name all the asian countires in this world cup finals ? Erm can you also name me 30 players involved in this year's world cup except Ronaldo, David Bechkam. Oh come on........ 32 teams and each team has around 20 players and that means there are at least 640 players in the world cup and you can't even name 30 of them ?? kekekek I can't either. Girls know nothing about football except no 7...David Beckham! hahaha
Anyway enjoy this month and hope you guys out there win a lot. Don't forget to belanja me makan after this!


Btw, the upper part of this post is courtesy of LKC. LKC was trying to "lan si" when we were watching the football match between Germany and Costa Rica just now. He was asking me to name 20 out of 32 countries that qualified in this year's world cup. I'm not that bad anyway, I managed to name out 11 countries. He was also trying to ask me how many number of groups are there in the world cup and I could tell him correctly! hahaha...guess I need to read everyday to avoid being "lan si" by LKC. Who will be this year's champion? We'll wait and see then. As I told LKC, Germany will be at least qualified for the semi finals. Lets bet whether I'm correct or not! Till then, enjoy the matches!!!

I had the most disgusting meal for lunch today. I wasn’t hungry when I left for lunch, so I ordered some dim sum as my lunch. I ordered siu-mai and lo-mai-kai from one of the restaurant that I always go for lunch when I’m back to Subang. I tried all the food there, but I have never tried the dim sum before. When the auntie sent the dim-sum over to my table, the siu-mai and the lo-mai-kai were not hot at all. I didn’t bother whether it’s hot or cold, but when I wanted to taste the lo-mai-kai, I saw there were some black spots on it. I was trying to use my chopsticks to “scratch” the black spots from the chicken, thought maybe it’s some dirt or something. While I was trying to “scratch” it, the “dirt” didn’t come out at all. So I tried to look closely, it looked more like mold than dirt to me. I returned the lo-mai-kai to that auntie and told her that there’s mold on the lo-mai-kai, but she refused to admit it. She told me that it’s the spring onion. She tried to “scratch” away the mold from the chicken, trying to convince me that it’s not really mold but she failed to remove that. So, she changed another lo-mai-kai for me. There are some dark spots on this second lo-mai-kai again. She tried to scratch away the spots, trying to convince me again that it is spring onion, but she failed to remove it again. So, she changed another lo-mai-kai for me again. The same dark spots were on the lo-mai-kai again. She tried to remove it again but failed to do so again. I got really fed up and disgusted with the mold on the lo-mai-kai, so I requested to change to siu-mai instead. The siu-mai tasted suck, the prawns aren’t fresh and the siu-mai’s skin was too thick. This will be my first and final time to have dim sum there. If anyone happens to go to SS15 for lunch/ dinner, do not ever try the dim sum in this restaurant. You can try other food here which will give you better deal and peaceful mind. The restaurant is just directly behind the Secret Recipe in SS15.

It's the 6th of June 06 (060606) today. Heard from one of my colleague that it's an unfaithful day. According to her, 6th of June will be the judgement day for the Christian and there will be 666 numbers on the evils' forehead when the judgement day arrives. Something weird happened today, when she was chatting with one of her friend whom had never online since she added her in to the list. She was surprised to see the name on the online list, so she said hi to her friend. Her friend replied her with hi and disappeared from the online list. So my colleague was feeling kinda weird, her friend online again, so she messaged her again asking why is she online. Her friend replied by saying "Hi, my name is VIRUS" and after that my colleague's notebook turned to blue screen. My colleague didn't receive any files or open anything while she was chatting with her "friend". So she quickly unplugged the network cable and suddenly the blue screen disappeared and her notebook turned back to normal. She was so worried that her notebook got infected with virus, so I told her to run a full virus scan but there wasn't any virus found. Why did this happen? What caused it to happen? Hmmm...something to ponder about.
