28.12.2010 | 聖誕大餐

好好好~~ 相信大家都渡過咗個開心聖誕啦, 係唔係期待緊新年又一round狂歡呢?? 哈哈!! 其實在下就冇點樣慶祝聖誕喇, 因為我拜觀音(呵呵!!), 最大肆慶祝應該係一個星期前嘅公司聖誕大餐囉.. 同大家分享幾張當晚影嘅相片啦..

hohoho~~ i believe everyone just had a very merry christmas, looking forward to another round of fun during new year?? haha!! well i didn't really celebrate christmas because my family devote to guan yin (hehe!!), the biggest celebration would have to be the company christmas dinner a week ago.. just share a few photos taken that night over here..

早咗一個星期嘅公司聖誕聚餐, 喺damansara heights一間叫做nero fico嘅意大利餐廳舉行..

25.12.2010 | 聖誕快樂

每年聖誕我都會花點心思, 送禮物仔畀同事.. 今年可以話係逛咗好多店, 絞盡好多腦汁, 終於喺最後一分鐘完成艱巨任務..
every year i'll think of what christmas gift to give to my colleagues, and this year after lots of shopping and cracking my head, finally i managed to accomplish this mission at the very last minute..
今年送嘅禮物就係呢六個親手做嘅禮物包喇.. 每個禮物包有公仔一隻, 禮物裝飾一個, 迷你朱古力一塊同埋小型賀卡一張.. 係唔係好精緻呢?? :p
so these are the six handpacked christmas present bag that i gave away this year.. inside each bag there's a plush toy, gift-box shaped ornament, mini chocolate and a small greeting card.. so lovely aren't they?? :p

22.12.2010 | 牙齒髮膚

我諗我對腳前世梗係做太多壞事.. 之前大腳趾受傷, 跟住就衍生而嚟嘅甲刺, 而家左腳板又學人生雞眼.. 已經貼雞眼膠布超過一個月, 但係粒雞眼仲唔捨得離開, 仲搞到我有時仲隱隱作痛添!! 唔該變位有獨們秘方可以即刻剷除雞眼呢??

i guess my feet are not lucky.. after my toe injury and the following ingrown nail, now i am having a corn right below my left big toe.. have been putting on the corn removal plasters to try to get rid of it since more than a month ago, but seems like it's too stubborn to be removed, and sometimes cause a little pain too!! anyone has effective remedy to get rid of corn quickly??

有冇計過自己有幾多隻牙咁呢?? 一般成年人會有32隻, 但係我仲未有智慧牙生得出嚟, 所以我得28隻.. 唔係講笑, 我一把年紀竟然冇智慧牙, 難道代表我冇智慧?? 不過見好多人畀智慧牙搞到痛不欲生, 其實冇都唔係唔好嘅, 啱唔啱??

have you counted how many teeth you have?? common adults should have 32, but since none of my wisdom teeth has emerged yet, i only have 28.. this is no joke i still don't have a wisdom tooth yet at this age, does that mean i am dumb?? well, i've heard too many bad experiences with wisdom teeth from friends, i'd rather to have none to save all the sufferings, don't you think so??

我諗好多見過我或我張相嘅朋友, 都會覺得有啲怪, 好似爭咁啲嘢咁.. 係唔係眼眉嘅問題呢?? 點解?? 冇得解, 我一生出嚟眼眉就係咁疏架喇, 冇辦法喎.. 眉疏好似對男人唔好吖呵?? 不如我試下植眉, 睇下可唔可以幫自己增加好運?? :p

i think many of you feel strange when you see me or my photo, because there seems to be something missing right?? yeah, my eyebrow that is.. nope, i can't explain what happened, i did not do anything but i was just born like that with very loose eyebrows.. doesn't look nice on a guy right?? maybe i should consider eyebrow implant and hope that will give me better fortune?? :p

19.12.2010 | 按摩傳奇

最近見到好多按摩街招, 個個都手法新穎, 簡直令人佩服.. 我個人認為, 如果你用好正直嘅觀念去睇, 肯定一頭霧水.. 但係如果你用邪念去睇, 我覺得應該能夠理解多少箇中奧妙.. 果然係好有趣嘅綽頭呀, 哈哈!! [先此聲明: 本人絕對冇做過呢啲按摩!!]

saw quite some massage service "advertisements" recently, and all are rather creative indeed.. i personally think that, if you see them using honest thoughts then you might most probably be confused.. but if you see them using kinky thoughts then i guess you'd easily read what's between the lines.. don't you think they are interesting?? haha!! [disclaimer: i didn't try any of those massage!!]

歡樂按摩.. 應該係最保守嘅促銷手法, 可以過目即忘..
happy massage.. i guess this should be the most conservative of all, seen and immediately forgotten..
芝士按摩?? 呢個我其實唔係好明, 有冇人可以幫手解釋下咁呢??
cheese massage?? err, i can't really get this, anyone who can help to explain??
火山按摩??!! 嘩嘩嘩, 搞到火山爆發咁激??!! 哈哈!! @_@"
volcano massage??!! oh my, as thrilled as a volcano eruption??!! haha!! @_@"

16.12.2010 | 歡迎嫁到

最近收到美國總公司快遞過嚟嘅禮盒, 係畀每位新同事嘅小小心意.. 入邊有一件T恤, 一個咖啡mug(為咗安全起見我當然已經擦走公司名同logo啦)同埋頂頭老細簡涵一封, 包裝都頗精緻架.. :)

received a box from our HQ in US recently, a welcome gift for all newhires.. a company t-shirt, a coffee mug (of course i've smudged off the company name and logo on the photo for security reason) and a short note from our CEO, all nicely packed inside a shoe box.. :)
後記: 其實有感轉工之後, 真係少咗好多上網時間, 因為咁樣就冇咩時間可以經常更新我呢個blog, 今日就算係簡短啲同大家分享啦..

p/s: i actually found out that after switching to this new job, i'm kind of deprived of time for surfing net, as such i can't really find enough time to update my blog more regularly.. anyway, just a short post to share with everyone today..

13.12.2010 | 相架與相

仲記唔記得以前收埋收埋一大堆相片嘅菲林年代?? 當時好多人每逢過年過節, 都好鐘意買埋啲相簿相架送禮畀人.. 老實講, 我就最唔鐘意收到呢啲禮物囉, 同樣地我都唔鐘意收到朱古力/曲奇/糖果之類嘅禮物(除非係特別名貴, 又或者當係小小手信), 所以閣下如果要送禮畀我, 留意下喇噃, 哈哈!! :D

話說回頭.. 記得多年前有某某男同學, 喺某某女同學生日嗰日送咗個相架畀佢.. 本應冇咩問題, 直至女同學暗地裡八畀大家知, 男同學竟然放咗自己張個人相喺相架入邊!! 未夠震撼?? 好, 再激爆啲!! 嗰張相哩, 原來係男同學自己影嘅赤裸上身沙龍藝術照!! 嘩, 簡直係"OH!"大嘴囉, 想點唧??

話時話, 閣下有冇試過將自己張相放入相架送畀人咁呢?? 又或者我更好奇嘅係, 假如閣下收到呢啲咁親熱嘅相, 會有咩反應呢??

still remember those days when we still use films and kept lots of physical photos?? well, that was the time when many people like to buy photo albums and frames as present.. BTW i hate receiving those as presents as much as i hate chocolates/cookies/candies (unless branded expensive and delicious, or just as little gifts or souvenirs), so please bear this in mind if you want to buy me a present, haha!! :D

back to photo frames.. i remember one particular classmates of mine, many years ago, bought another classmate a photo frame for her birthday.. nothing's wrong until she showed us what he's put in - a photo of himself!! and to shock you more, a topless photo of himself taken "rather" artistic-salon style.. OMG, we were like jaw-dropped and couldn't understand the rational behind..

have you ever put your own photo in a frame as present to others?? or rather i'm more curious to know, what will you do if you receive such an "intimate" photo as present?? :p

10.12.2010 | 掠水牙醫

我咁大個人, 應該係第一次牙痛!! 幾個月前開始有過敏症狀出現架喇, 但係自己又衰懶理, 結果噚晚終於發作喇, 搞到成晚冇覺好瞓, 真係慘絕人寰!! :(

一晚折騰之後, 今朝即刻打電話預約, 中午咋咋臨去睇牙醫.. 原來下頜右邊最後第二只臼齒有三個窿, 牙醫話補下就好.. 結果求其一補, 再畀包抗生素同止痛藥, 前後唔到半個鐘, 就咁承惠三百大元喇, 真係O大嘴一頸血囉當時, 唔好去搶?? 嘩, 原來牙醫咁好賺, 早知我都做牙醫好喎~~
i guess this is my very first time suffering from toothache.. actually already felt the symptoms of sensitive teeth couple of months back, but my bad, i just ignored it.. for goodness sake, it finally attacked me yesterday and made me sleepless for the whole night long!! :(

after a night of torture, i quickly make an appointment with the dentist and went over to the clinic during lunch time.. it was because of the three little holes on my bottom-right last-second molar tooth, and the dentist just said it'll be fine after filling them up.. so she did and prescribed me some antibiotic and painkiller, in just less than 30 minutes.. and holy j, i was charged RM300 for that (eye-popping and jaw-dropping)!! gosh, i didn't know dentist can make such easy money, else i think i'd want to be a dentist already~~

08.12.2010 | 廁所趣事

唔錯, 今日我的而且確係要寫廁所.. 不過放心, 絕對唔係啲核突嘢, 而係我經歷過同廁所有關嘅趣事啫.. 所以你可以好安心繼續睇落去而唔駛鬧我核突噃, 哈哈~~ :p

[趣事 1]
仲好記得我間小學嘅廁所, 因為又黑有污蹧, 所以我非常之抗拒, 可以嘅話請願忍都唔去架喇.. 其二, 以前上廁所一定要得到老師同意, 我又好細膽連問都唔敢問喎.. 所以哩, 一年班嘅時候試過有兩次, 實在係忍唔到, 竟然坐住喺課室裡邊賴屎!! 嘩, 你想像下當時週圍都係"溶漿", 老師措手不及個樣~~ 哈哈!! :D

[趣事 2]
上到中學當然冇再有類發生啦.. 不過假如你上緊課半途上廁所, 稍微耐啲, 實會畀同學(甚至某啲老師)笑你去屙屎.. 非常無聊囉, 不過為咗唔畀人笑到面黃, 我都儘量等到休息時間或者快快完事.. 仲有, 記得以前個清潔女工, 係個不折不扣嘅惡阿嬸, 最好就係避開佢, 千其唔好阻住佢或者整污蹧廁所呀, 如果唔係實畀佢鬧到你狗血淋頭冇鞋挽屐走, 好恐怖架~~ @_@

today i'm writing about toilets again, absolutely nothing disgusting but funny stories i encountered.. so you can read on without having to curse me, hehe~~ :p

i still remember how reluctant i was to use the toilet in my primary school.. it was so dark and filthy that most of the time i choose to skip until i reach home.. secondly, i was quite intimidated to even ask for teacher's permission to go to toilet, as such, there were two times during my first year that i couldn't hold on anymore and straight away "lao sai" on my seat in the classroom!! oh, imagine "chocolate lava" everywhere in the class!! hahaha~~ :D

during high school of course it never happened again lah.. if we went toilet and return after a while, we'd be laughed at by the classmates (or even some naughty teacher) for shitting so long.. that's quite a nonsense but in order not to be laughed at, i always tried to be fast and do it only during break.. also i remember the cleaner was a very stern old lady, try to avoid her or else if you blocked her way or did something wrong (in her opinion), you would undoubtedly be scolded loud enough everyone hears and that's really no joke.. @_@

05.12.2010 | 河內足跡

新工作第二個星期, 去咗一趟河內.. 上一篇都有提到我係第一次去越南, 不過因為工作關係, 三日兩夜其實都冇機會四週圍睇吓.. 下邊啲相都係臨走前一個早上, 喺酒店附近匆匆影低嘅, 至少叫做有見識到啩?? 哈哈..

in my second week of the new job, i went to hanoi for a business trip.. as mentioned in the previous post, this was my first time to vietnam.. but because this is a working trip, i really did not have a chance to go around the place.. the photos below were taken hastily around the hotel on the morning before i left, at least i've seen a little of the city?? haha..

[相片 1/15  |  Photo 1 of 15]« 往前 Previous  |  往後 Next »
呢個trip有幾個第一次: 第一次去越南, 新工作第一次出國, 新護照第一次蓋印..
there are a few first-times for this trip: first time to vietnam, first business trip for the new company, first two stamps on the new passport..

02.12.2010 | 雜談三則

當你睇緊呢篇scheduled post嘅時候, 我已身在河內.. 呢次係新公司第一次出國公干, 我未去過越南, 所以心情都有啲興奮嘅.. 仲有, 我而家其實係個百萬富翁噃!! 因為身上有百萬越南盾, 哈哈!! 感覺如何?? 你自己去越南感受下啦~~ :D

by the time you read this scheduled post, i'm already in Hanoi.. this is my first business trip with the new company, kind of excited as i've not been to Vietnam before.. pssst, i am now a millionaire i tell you.. because i'm carrying a million Vietnam Dong with me, hehe.. how does that feel being a million-"dong"-aire?? hmmm, just book your trip and then feel it yourself!! haha~~ :D

早幾日喺某個商場撞到位舊客戶.. 仲記得同佢共事嘅時候, 係我巔峰肥時期, 係之後先瘦咗啲落嚟.. 佢好遠見到我就一眼認得出係我, 言談之間佢完全對我個身形冇任何評語.. 難道我而家真係肥到好似舊陣時咁?? 嘩, 真係冇陰公喇~~ :(

bumped into an ex-customer couple of days ago.. i still remember the time when i worked with her, it was during my peak fat period, i only started to slim down a little after that.. she saw me from far away and just recognised me immediately, as we talked she didn't comment anything on my appearance.. haiz, guess i've just gone back to as fat as that time?? sigh, that's so disgraceful~~ :(

之前同大家講過我公司個座位, 原來哩, 背對住窗口係唔好架喎, 風水學上話咁樣代表背後冇靠山, 冇貴人扶持喎.. 所以星期一返工, 第一件事就係將窗帘拉落嚟, 希望可以助我實業一帆風順啦.. 唔係迷信風水, 但係咁做都冇壞嘅~~ :p

updates from previous post on my seat in the office.. found out that a window behind you is actually not good, as in fengshui term this symbolises that there is no one you can rely on and no one to render help.. so very first thing i did Monday morning was to draw the window shades down to minimise the impact, hope this gives me good luck?? i'm not superstitious, but no harm doing this right?? :p

29.11.2010 | 經濟雜飯

我哋馬來西亞其中一種最普遍同經典嘅"美食", 實係非經濟雜飯莫屬啦, 而我好肯定大家都必定喜愛過嘅.. 我有時肚餓飯癮起嘅時候, 就會好想食碟雜飯, 因為菜式多得眼花繚亂, 見到眼前幾十款餸我會好興奮莫名..

講起食雜飯, 我其實有個習慣.. 首先肯定要少啲飯, 跟住撈啲汁, 然之後就例牌三樣(拎得有啲貪心嘅)餸.. 一肉一菜一蛋, 包保營養均衡呀.. 唔知大家食雜飯嘅時候, 又有啲咩規矩咁呢?? :p
one of our most common and classic "delicacies" must be the economy mixed rice (or known locally as chap fan) and i'm sure many of us just love it.. i'm a fans of chap fan especially when hungry and craving for rice, as the variety of dishes you can choose from is just amazingly vast..

when it comes to having chap fan, i tend to have a habit to first ask for less rice, then scoop some gravy on the rice and finally pick three (big piles of) dishes, 1 meat and 1 vege and 1 egg which is rather balanced and healthy yeah?? do you have any particular habit when it comes to eating chap fan?? :p

27.11.2010 | 全新環境

返新工一個星期喇, 首個星期其實都係orientation所以都無驚無險, 加上我老細又放緊假, 下星期佢返嚟恐怕就會吊頸唞唔到氣喇.. 大致上都幾唔錯, 同事都好友善, 不過需要畀時間自己習慣吓美式管理制度.. 同埋晨早8:30開工哩, 每日(瞓到最後一秒鐘都)晨七就要起身, 真係覺得每日都缺少睡眠, 冇陰公呀~~ 好啦, 下邊影啲相大家睇下啦.. :)

it's one week after i started my new job, the first week is basically orientation hence nothing bad really happened.. furthermore my boss is on vacation, but guess when he comes back next week, there will be lots of things to do already.. generally everything is good and colleagues are friendly too, but guess i need time to get used to the American management style.. also it's really a pain for me to start work at 8:30am as i need to wake up early at (and latest by) 7:00am which make me feel so deprieved of sleep everyday, gosh~~ anyway, have snapped some photo of my new office to share with everyone here.. :)

[相片 1/10  |  Photo 1 of 10]« 往前 Previous  |  往後 Next »
公司入口同埋會客室.. 見唔見角落個水晶風水陣?? 呵呵~~
Office main entrance and meeting rooms.. see the fengshui crystal placed at the corner?? haha..

24.11.2010 | 閱前讀後

發覺自己從來未似最近咁頻密地閱讀, 唔知係唔係人老咗, 生活習慣都會有啲改變咁呢??

以前從來都唔喜歡閱讀(話係嗜好其實都係敷衍老師啫), 除咗教科書之外, 唯一會睇書係因為需要交閱讀報告.. 但係最近就好似睇上癮咁, 睇完一本再接一本, 睇晒又繼續入貨.. 早幾日仲好豪氣咁一次過買四本書(個人記錄呀), 不過呢一系列19世紀經典文學作品, 一本只係RM9.90, 非常之值得買噃~~
i realised i have never been reading so much like i did recently, really wonder as you get older, your lifestyle will also have a little change??

i remember i never like reading that much (even to say reading as a hobby was rather to please the teachers), other than academic textbooks, the only reason i read was because of the reading report.. however recently i found out i've been quite fond of reading, one book read after another, and new books bought after another.. few days ago, i even bought four books one shot (my very personal record), the series of 19th century classic literature for only RM9.90 per book, quite worth for money i thought~~

21.11.2010 | 美食中心

每次路經啲商場嘅美食中心, 都會不經意咁往一往啲人食緊乜嘢, 睇到檯上嘅食物就會一笑置之.. 點解我話一笑置之呢?? 大家有冇發覺到家吓啲所謂嘅美食中心, 其實已經不再美食喇??

家吓啲美食中心都極之商業化, 價錢貴不特止, 而且好多時候都係冇誠意(又或者過份有創作誠意), 成pat嘢畀你咁唔開胃.. 仲有呀, 有冇發現啲嘢都係外籍人士整畀你架?? 雖則話受過訓, 但係大家知我哋唐人通常都唔會傳授真功夫, 肯定有幾分保留架啦.. 就係咁, 你話啲嘢會好得去邊??

就算打出個「布袋食神」嘅面子, 號稱網羅城中所有美食於一屋檐下, 乜都係假.. 我始終覺得回歸最基本, 品嘗應有嘅人情味, 先至係最正宗嘅美食..

whenever i walk passed foodcourt in shopping malls, i will unintentionally look at what the patrons are eating, and most if the time i'll just have a laugh and walk away looking at those so-called delicacies.. why did i say so?? but don't you think the foodcourt now are not really selling nice food at all??

i would say they are all very commercialised, pricey food and worst thing is how not sincere (or perhaps too sincere in "creative fusion") the food are being prepared.. other than that, have you noticed your food are now all prepared by foreign workers, though skilled and trained, but we know us chinese will not teach everything and always reserved some so-called deadly skills.. so tell me, how will the food taste authentically nice under such factors??

sorry to say even with the guarantee from that famous "sling bag gastronome" that all great food brought under the same roof, i still think the best food would be those cooked in the most authentic, most original and heartiest way..

18.11.2010 | 溝通方式

科技發達, 而家你要同人溝通實在係簡單又方便.. 但係又因為有太多渠道嘅關係, 搞到有啲人往往貪方便用錯車鈕(channel), 而唔係最基本最直接了當嘅方式.. 其實點樣有效溝通, 都係一門學問也~~

  • [案例一: SMS] 明明一機在手, 請願你來我往發送幾廿個短訊, 攘咗大半日先搞清楚大家嘅意思.. 都唔明點解唔直接打個電話當場講清楚呢??
  • [案例二: MSN] 個同事明明就坐係隔離, 伸個頭埋去就可以講到嘢啦.. 都唔明點解係都要用MSN又或者電郵呢?? 跟住就叮來叮去, 沒完沒了, 幾惱囉~~
  • [案例三: FB] 有心約朋友出嚟見面就撥個輪或者發個短訊啦.. 都唔明點解係都要通過面卜event等人回應呢?? 唔係個個人都登入都會睇到架喎..

the advanced techology nowadays allow us to communicate with others in simple and easy ways.. perhaps there are too many channels available, till some people seem unable to use the most efficient path to communicate.. really, effective communication is one kind of skills to learn~~
  • [case 1: SMS] the cellphone is on their hands, instead of calling directly to talk and resolve issues on the spot, i can't understand why some just like to send rounds of SMS and only able to sort things out after half a day has passed..
  • [case 2: MSN] the colleague is just sitting in the next cubicle and instead of poking your head over and talk, i can't undestand why some just like to use MSN or send emails and then enjoy the frustration of repititive ding-dong's..
  • [case 3: FB] having the thought of inviting friends out for a drink, give a call or SMS would be the best channel i supposed.. i can't understand why some just like to use FB event and wait for response?? but not everyone will login often and will notice that invitation right??

15.11.2010 | 百思不解

上星期去移民局總部更新護照, 啲服務有幾快捷有效大家心知肚明啦, 我無謂嘥口水多講.. 今日個重點係, 我張相被拒收, 理由係唔可以用返同樣嘅相更新護照!!

大家睇睇下邊兩張相(如果我副尊容嚇親你, 唔好意思:p), 左邊係護照上五年前影嘅, 右邊係前一日啱啱影嘅.. 明顯睇得出肥咗又老咗啦係嘛?? 但個職員話: 樣差唔多, 件衫又一樣, *為咗安全理由*, 唔可以接受..

大家幫手評下理喇.. 我都三張幾啦, 個樣仲可以點變呀?? 件衫五年後仲keep得住著係好事喎.. 有咩理由唔畀用呢張「睇落一樣嘅」相先??!! 嘩, 真係百思不得其解囉, 佢惡晒得啦咁~~
went renew my passport at the immigration HQ last week.. no, i'm not blogging about how "efficient" their services are (since everybody would have already known) but about my photo being rejected, reason being not allowed to use the same photo for renewal..

look at the two photos above (sorry if my look give you a nightmare :p), on the left was taken 5 years ago and used for my passport, on the right was taken just a day ago.. you'll obviously see that i'm older and fatter right?? but the staff just said, "same look and same clothes, *for security reason*, we cannot allow that in your new passport"..

everybody just speak a word for me.. i'm already over 30 and to what extent does she expect me to change?? and having able to wear the same clothes after 5 years is a good thing too.. why must this (look the same) photo be rejected??!! i really don't understand, she just didn't give any room~~

12.11.2010 | 休業狀態

我家陣可以話係無業狀態, 一個星期後先正式返新工.. 唔好以為我好他條喎, 其實返工之前我需要完成新公司兩個網上certification training囉.. 冇日冇夜咁對住部電腦成個星期之後, 前日終於全部趴士晒, 任務完成!! 總算可以暫且放下心頭大石喇.. :)

i'm considered "jobless" now as i only report to new job after next week.. don't think i'm very leisure now, because i need to complete two online certification training from the new company before i start.. after a week of almost-sleepless days, i finally am done with it and pass all the day before.. now i can say i can shed off some pressure on myself for a temporary moment.. :)

新工作需要經常出國, 所以趁放緊假就快快脆去更新本護照.. 移民局服務大家都有所避忌架啦, 但係誓估唔到噚日去到, 個工作人員淨係講咗另外一間分行(兩個字咁多), 拗晒頭啦我梗係, 直到我旁敲側擊佢先冇好氣咁話: 系統故障!! 咩態度呀真係~~ @_@

new job requires me to travel, so i take opportunity to renew my passport while in a break.. i'm sure we've heard about the notorious services from immigration, never have i expect the staff to just say the name of another branch (just that two words) without explaining, until i asked further only she said indifferently: system down!! oh gosh, what an attitude~~ @_@

唔駛返工之前, 除咗金睛火眼對住部電腦training之外, 其實週末都會唞一唞嘅.. 不過同樣係金睛火眼對住部電腦--追劇集!! 哈哈.. 最近睇緊無記重頭劇《巾幗梟雄之義海豪情》, 越睇越覺個故事結構同第一集一樣樣, 只係轉咗個年代同背景咋.. 不過都幾好睇喎其實.. :p

while still in a break, besides looking at the monitor for the certification training, i actually let myself rest during weekends.. still keep looking at the monitor, but watching drama series!! haha.. am watching TVB drama "No Regrets" now, the more i watch the more i think the storyline is similar to the preceeding one, just a change of time and background.. still, an interesting one to watch.. :p

08.11.2010 | 越大越靚

前日喺某個"海鮮級"商場見到有位叔虎身穿一件令我覺得好不安好反感嘅恤衫.. 佢整件衫哩, 係寫滿Armani Exchange字樣架, 而且仲係98pt嘥士嘅Arial Bold!!! 嘩, 好響囉~~

如果係我, 肯定唔會買呢一類衫囉.. 我認為著咩牌子嘅衫, 唔駛大聲高調話人知係嘛?? 畀我見到, 唔係覺得係假嘢, 就會以為你係員工, 一唔係就覺得好bad taste囉.. 要著住咁大隻logo喺身上, 我唔覺得威水, 反而覺得尷尬噃, 畀幾百蚊做人肉廣告板咩?? 老實講, 呢款設計靚咩?? 唔好衝住個牌子做名牌奴隸, 唔卡士喎~~
i saw an almost-middle-age guy wearing a shirt that made me feel so uneasy the other day in a "seafood grade" mall.. you know what?? his whole shirt was fully filled up with the word Armani Exchange, and to my horror, in Arial Bold and font size 98pt!! OMG, that's so disgracefully loud~~

i will definitely not buy this kind of clothes, i mean why the hell tell everyone loudly the brand you are wearing?? to me, if i see people wearing it, if not think they are fake, then would thought you are the staff, else i will think they are very bad taste indeed.. i won't feel proud wearing huge logo on me, in fact i'll feel embarrassed, why are you paying few hundred to look like an advertising board?? frankly, do you think this kind of design is nice?? come on, don't just buy because of the brand, it's just brand-slave to me, that's quite unclass right??

03.11.2010 | 金睛火眼

呢幾日閉關, 由晨早至凌晨十幾個鐘, 都係眼金金望住以下呢位先生.. 哈哈, 唔好以為我哋有姦情呀, 其實係個網上課程, 我必需要喺返新工之前上完呢個課程同埋考到張證書架..

been staying at home from morning till midnight for the past two days, all i did was just watching this Mr below.. haha, don't mistaken we have something fishy going on, but it's actually an online training that i need to complete and get certified before i join my new company..
原本四日半嘅課程, 我將佢兩日完成, 所以咪搞到自己金睛火眼兼頭腦就快爆炸囉.. 今朝膽粗粗去考試, 皇天不負有心人, 結果趴士咗噃, 而且仲係滿分嗰隻喎!! 哈哈, 好開心架, 不過仲有一個課程要考囉, 悶~~ @_@

it's a 4.5 days course but i squeezed everything into 2 days, and that explains why i've been so exhausted till my brain is in the verge of explosion.. this morning i boldly took the certification exam, thank god i pass it and surprisingly even with a full score!! haha, i'm very happy, but then there's another certification to go, how boring~~ @_@

01.11.2010 | 叮噹手信

最近有兩位朋友出國旅行, 可能因為之前寫過幾篇多啦A夢, 所以佢哋都不約而同咁帶咗叮噹返嚟畀我做手信.. 好鐘意呀, 多謝晒!! :)
two of my friends went vacation overseas recently, and maybe because i've written a few post on Doraemon, they both brought back Doraemon toys for me as souvenirs.. i really like them very much, thanks a bundle!! :)
博友藍天小君由香港帶畀我嘅多啦A夢寶物帶, 入邊有支迷你香水, 迪迪尼魔術毛巾, 同埋多啦A夢鎖匙扣一個.. 呢個寶物帶好趣緻, 好有心架~~ :)
blogger bluesky brought me a Doraemon goodies bag from HK, there is a mini perfume, a Disney magic towel and a cute Doraemon keychain in there.. a very thoughtful goodies bag indeed~~ :)

友人JY由台灣帶返嚟, 特別版蘋果綠色多啦A夢時光筆.. 除咗原子筆功能之外, 特別之處在於多啦A夢面珠登旁邊有個掣, 㩒一㩒就會將時間投射出嚟, 個鼻仲會發光添!! 係唔係好盞鬼?? :p
friend JY brought back from TW, a special edition apple-green Doraemon time pen.. besides the pen function, the special feature lies on the button beside Doraemon's cheek.. when you press that button, the current time will be projected and his nose will lit too!! isn't that amazing?? :p

29.10.2010 | 我的新腦

其實我從來未擁有過一部屬於我自己嘅電腦, 咁耐以嚟都係用緊公司畀我嘅手提電腦.. 因為最近辭工嘅關係, 所以就覺得係時候要擁有一部真正屬於自己嘅電腦喇!!

本來就想話扮吓高級買部蘋果嘅, 不過左敲右度之後, 充咩唧?? 都係經濟實惠啲好, 於是扑錘買咗以下呢一部喇.. 都非常之無錯架其實, 仲有噃, 你知唔知買電腦係可以扣稅架噃, 哈哈~~ :p
i have not really have my very own laptop so far, all the while the ones that i've been using belongs to the company.. due to my recent resignation, i thought it's time for me to have a laptop that is of my genuine ownership..

my initial urge was to go a higher standard to own an apple, but after serious thoughts, well it's just for casual use, so it's rather wiser to get a more economical one, hence i finally decided to pick this one above.. very not bad at all indeed, and do you know, you can also get tax exemption from buying computers?? haha~~ :p

27.10.2010 | 五年走來

我喺01.12.2005加入咗而家呢間公司, 大大話話都有成五年咁耐喇.. 當中同過好多同事合作過, 大家好似一個大家庭, 正如大家見到啲相咁, 係一個非常之融洽嘅工作環境..
i joined this company on 01.12.2005 and it has come to almost five years now.. have been working with many colleagues and it's like working in a big family, just like the photos you are seeing now, the working environment is really a harmonious one..
當我仍然好enjoy呢份工作嘅時候, 我做咗個離開嘅決定, 因為人都係需要往唔同層面發展.. 今日27.10.2010係我喺呢間公司最後一日喇, 好感激同我共事嘅每一位, 多謝大家一路以來嘅合作同支持.. 祝每一位同事前途無量!! :)
while i really enjoy working here, i've decided to leave for a better prospect.. today 27.10.2010 is my last day with the company, and i am really thankful to everyone who has worked with me, thank you for all the cooperation and support.. wish everyone all the best in the future!! :)

25.10.2010 | 浮上水面

我從來都唔避忌談屎尿屁呢啲嘢, 而且仲會越講越興奮, 哈哈!! 所以如果你有所避忌, 請勿繼續睇落去喇..

話說前日食buffet狀態大勇導致便便太多嘅關係, 一次沖水竟然沖唔晒全部!! 我就諗, 企喺廁所入邊等水滿好似好戇居, 所以就丟啲廁紙落去以為可以瞞天過海一陣, 反正我間房就喺廁所隔離, 等多兩分鐘再入嚟沖過啦.. 當我以為全屋人都開開心心喺樓下睇緊電視嘅時候, 誓估唔到~~
i never avoid talking about poo pee and fart, instead will get even more excited when the topic gets to the point, haha!! hence if you think these are gross, please leave and do not continue to read on..

it was that day after buffet that i pooed a lot till i wasn't able to get everything down the drain with a single flush.. i thought standing there waiting for the tank to be filled up again is rather stupid, so i just dump some paper into the toilet to cover up the poo, thinking of returning to flush a second time two minutes later since my room is just next door.. while i thought the whole family was happily watching TV downstairs, to my unexpected shock..

22.10.2010 | 車立人憎

首先為大家解釋標題個車立係咩意思.. 其實[車立]應該睇作一個字, 讀作lip, 即係大家平時上樓落樓所搭嘅乘客昇降機咁解..

相信大家每日都會搭[車立]啦係嘛?? 以下呢幾種乘客係我覺得好鬼[車立]人憎嘅, 唔知大家可有同感??
  1. 大大件頂住個門口, 禮貌嗌佢讓路都仍然係企定定, 係咁意側個膊算數嘅朋友.. 唔該死開啦, 阻住條路~~
  2. [車立]內已經逼爆人毫無郁動空間, 係都要自己㩒字, 粗身粗勢整親人嘅朋友.. 唔該開下把口叫人幫手㩒啦, 呢種人情唔駛還喎~~
  3. 慢條斯理蓮步姍姍行入嚟等門閂嘅朋友.. 成[車立]人趕時間, 唔該你最後一個入嚟, 就順手㩒埋個閂門掣, 慳返大家3秒鐘時間啦~~

before i start, i'd like to explain what is meant by 車立 in the title.. it should actually be seen as one word [車立], pronounced as "lip" (mis-pronunciation of lift actually) which means elevator in cantonese..

i believe everyone of us take elevator to office or to home everyday.. among the different passengers, i found the following very annoying, do you also agree with me??
  1. those who block the door, even if you politely seek for excuse, still standing there like a steady rock without giving way (maybe just slightly move the shoulder to response).. oh please f**k off will you?? you're blocking the way~~
  2. those who insist pressing the button (not knowing they actually clumsily bump other passengers) even if the elevator is packed with no extra inch to move.. come on, just speak up and get someone to help you press the button, you don't have to repay for this~~
  3. those who take their own sweet time entering the elevator and then waiting for the door to close.. i mean, the whole lot of passengers (who are also in a rush to work) are waiting, can't you just do us good by pressing the "close" button to save everyone a 3-second time??

20.10.2010 | 燙衫精神

曾經聽好多精明家庭主婦話過, 平時燙衫點樣可以慳電慳時慳精力..
  • 如果你係有攝衫嘅話, 咁你可以唔駛燙件衫下半截
  • 如果你係習慣將衣袖捲起嘅話, 咁你可以唔駛燙衫袖
  • 如果你係會著住件褸嘅話, 咁你可以唔駛燙衫袖同背面

以上方法係就係幾精明, 但係我就覺得好搞笑囉.. 我雖然唔係咩專業人士, 但係由中學開始到而家都係自己燙衫囉.. 我覺得將件衫完完整整咁燙到直一直係理所應當喎, 燙啲唔燙啲感覺好怪囉.. 可能我屬於腳踏實地型, 又或者因為我係個完美主意者??
heard quite a number of ways you can actually save electricity, save effort and save time while ironing your clothes..
  • if you tuck-in your shirt, then you can leave the bottom half of your shirt not ironed
  • if you used to roll-up your sleeves, then you can leave both sleeves of your shirt not ironed
  • if you are wearing a coat, then you can leave boths sleeaves and the back of your shirt not ironed

the methods might seem very smart, but to me they are a bit funny.. though i'm not any professionals, i already started to do my own ironing since high school and still doing that till now.. i would think it's a "should" to completely iron your shirt, leaving parts not ironed somehow just doesn't seem right.. or maybe it's just because i'm a perfectionist??

18.10.2010 | 蔬菜與我

[壹] 幾日前同某位朋友MSN, 無端端傾到話去買菜.. 我就話一列菜擺晒出嚟, 除咗包菜椰菜西蘭花之外, 其他菜我肯定分唔清邊樣打邊樣.. 譬如話我要買芥蘭, 你畀棵菜心我, 我都會毫無疑問畀錢囉.. :p

[ONE] was chatting with a friend on MSN one day and we suddenly talked about buying vegetables.. i frankly told her, if there is a whole stretch of vegetables, other than cabbage and brocolli, i'd definitely not able to differentiate other vegetables.. for instance, if i wanted some kai lan and you gave me choy sum instead, i'll still pay happily without suspicion.. :p
[貳] 記得細個嘅時候我係至憎食菜嘅, 每次屋企炒親菜我都淨係挑食伴碟啲肉片或銀魚仔, 哈哈!! 但係中學以後, 我竟然可以咩菜都食得落肚, 連我自己都解釋唔到.. 可能真係人長大咗口味會變啦.. :)

[TWO] i remember i hate vegetables when i was a kid, whenever there're vege on the table, i'd definitely pick only the meat or anchovies that were cooked together to eat, haha!! but things changed after high school, i now eat all types of vege regardless, that i can't even explain.. or perhaps it's true that you tend to change a little while you're growing up?? :)

15.10.2010 | 鷸蚌相爭

自從麥當當推出超值午餐大受歡迎之後, 其他快餐連鎖店都不甘人後陸陸續續加入呢個行列, 甚至推出更加平嘅全日超值套餐.. 身為消費者嘅我哋就當然係鼓掌叫好, 坐享漁人之利啦..

呢種薄利多銷嘅手法, 經濟效益上嚟講, 一旦深入民心, 就冇得返轉頭架喇, 除非佢哋想生意即刻跌幾成囉.. 所以我覺得呢種促銷應該係無限期嘅, 大家可以儘管放心食, 除非佢哋聯手還擊啦, 哈哈~~
after McD became the pioneer in value lunch and gained overwhelming response, other fast food chains slowly join in the trend to offer value meals, even cheaper and all-day-long.. of course we being consumers will strongly welcome the competition, as we are apparently the ones who get the advantage..

i actually think this strategy to boost sales with cheaper price is a no-way-back, unless they are fine with immediate drop of sales.. hence, for econimical benefits, these would most probably be indefinite promotions and we can happily enjoy the cheaper price, unless they ally and fight us back, haha~~

13.10.2010 | 兒童套餐

唔知大家平時去快餐店, 會唔會買兒童套餐嚟食架呢?? 我就唔會囉, 除非係有特殊原因啦.. 就好似上星期去食KFC, 無意中見到有多啦A夢玩具, 喜出望外情況之下, 就咁買咗我生平中第一份KFC兒童套餐喇, 哈哈!! :D
i'm curious if you'll buy kids meal when you go to a fast food restaurant?? i never, unless there's a reason for me to do that.. last week in KFC i accidentally saw these Doraemon toys, was so excited that i then bought my first KFC Chicky Meal ever, haha!! :D

一共有四款玩具, 我同朋友每人買兩份, 所以輕而易舉咁一次過收集齊全部款式!! 哈哈.. 其實兒童套餐係成人套餐一半, 所以一人啃兩份實屬係正常呀.. 四個多啦A夢樂也融融, 睇下佢哋幾開心~~ :p
there are 4 designs in total, another fried and i each bought two meals, and easily collect all 4 toys!! haha, actually kids meal is just half a portion of the adult meal, so having two kids meal is absolutely normal lah.. look at the 4 Doraemon, see how happy they are~~ :p

2010年第100篇貼.. 100th post for year 2010..

10.10.2010 | 一零故事

今日係10.10.10, 一個日期好特殊嘅普通日子, 因為每一百年先有咁嘅一日咋.. 如無意外, 今日會有好多人結婚, 貪呢日易記而且三個10又可以代表樣樣嘢10全10美吖嘛.. 唔知大家今日又有冇咩特別值得紀念嘅事呢??

it's 10.10.10 today, a normal sunday with a special date, as there it only appears once in a century.. as expected there will be a lot of couples getting marrid today, since the date is easy to remember and three 10's means everything's perfect 10.. so is there anything special that you have today that's worth commemorate??

令人百般期待嘅城中最新商場, 我噚晚終於有幸一遊喇!! 外表就非常吸引喇, 但我只逗留短短10分鐘, 因為裡面都尚係好吉.. 其實問題在於八成以上都係店舖仔, 我覺得係繼成功廣場之後, 另一個升級版金河咋囉.. 老實講, 係10.10級嘅失望呀~~

last night i finally have the chance to go to the much anticipated newest shopping mall in town.. the outer design is very nice, but i just spent like 10 minutes inside as it's still very empty.. actually the problem i found is that more than 80% are little shops, which i just think it's another upgraded Sg Wang after Berjaya Timesquare.. frankly it's 10.10 grade of disappointment~~

講到商場, 其實有感自己唔再有以前嗰一種購物嘅心態喇.. 以前係逢減價必定行動, 懶高尚揀牌子, 洗錢唔眨眼.. 而家就係要物有所值, 而且仲會格價後先決定買唔買.. 與其揮霍, 不如見到戶口啲錢不斷增長, 睇住月結單陰陰嘴笑, 我覺得個滿足感大10倍囉.. :D

talk about malls, i actually feel i've lost the kind of shopping attitude i used to have last time.. it was compulsory action for every sales, choosy on brands, numb towards spending money.. but it is now about comparing prices and never will buy if things are not worth the price.. instead of spending, i think seeing the account balance growing and able to grin when looking at the statement actually gives 10 times more satisfaction right?? :D

07.10.2010 | 閱讀因由

唔揸車嘅朋友, 你哋平時搭巴士/搭的士/搭火車嘅時候, 通常會點樣打發時間呢?? 我最近就係趁搭輕鐵返工放工嘅時候, 爭取時間睇書喇..

其實哩, 我唔係真係咁鐘意閱讀咋.. 學生時代, 為免夜長夢多, 通常都會話「我的嗜好」係琴棋書畫其中一項.. 點解?? 因為如果唔係嘅話, 實畀老師質問, 係屬於身不由己.. 而家點解又會閱讀呢?? 係因為買咗一大堆書擺埋一邊唔睇, 感覺好折墮.. 但係點解又要買一大堆書呢?? 講到底, 咪就係因為可以扣稅囉(呵呵!!), 係屬於逼不得已..
if you don't drive, what do you normally do to kill the time while commuting?? recently i have been filling up the time reading books while commuting to and from work..

but in fact, i don't really think reading is my cup of tea.. when i was a student, i'd claim that my hobby is one of the standard "instruments/ chess/ books/ drawings".. why?? because most teachers will question and challenge you if it doesn't fall into any of the categories, this is called inevitable.. so why do i read now?? it's because i don't feel good leaving the books i bought aside without reading them.. and why do i buy books then?? to the root cause, it's because we can get tax rebate from buying books (haha!!), and this is called unavoidable..

04.10.2010 | 電話語障

今時今日應該都冇乜邊個係冇手機架喇, 諗返起以前連電話都冇嘅日子, 每次都要同對面屋借電話, 又或者要專登踩單車去街口個電話亭, 畀著而家都真係唔知點樣生存??

但係呢, 我又唔係個鐘意打電話搵人傾偈嘅人噃.. 可能真係唔擅長講嘢啦, 我平時喺個blog度可以長篇大論, 或者MSN我可以一輪咀打成段嘢飛過去.. 但係一講到電話, 我就好似個泄了氣嘅氣球, 顯得有心無力, 所以咪畀人話我冇咩誠意要傾落去咁囉.. 其實唔係架, 你熟悉我就覺得唔係架喇..

不過講開又講, 與其喺電話度傾得咁辛苦, 不如約出嚟見個面, 把膝長談咪仲更加之好?? :p
i guess nowadays there is rarely anyone who doesn't own a handphone.. i still remember back in my kids time when we don't even have a phone at home, we will always need to borrow from the neighbours, or even purposely cycle to the street for the public phone.. i wonder if we can survive like that nowadays??

but then, i'm really not someone who likes to chit-chat over the phone.. maybe it's because i'm not good in that, i can type long story in my blog or even send one long paragraph to you in MSN, but when it comes to talking over the phone, i'm like a balloon loosing its air.. most of the time i go short and sweet, and hence gives the other end an impression that i'm not interested to talk any longer.. actually no, it's really not the case, if you know me well enough then you'd know it's not the case..

by the way, i always wonder since it's such a hassle talking over the phone, why not just meet up to have a good catch-up over a cup or tea?? :p

28.09.2010 | 立體電影

各位有冇留意到最近啲電影全部都有3D版本咁呢?? 就連《肉蒲團》都要開拍史上第一部III-D三級片添呀!! =.= 唔知囉, 係唔係真實啲呢?? 可能我仲未拍得住呢架3D列車, 通常我都會選擇睇普通2D版囉..

睇3D要成場戲帶住副紅綠眼睛, 我覺得幾唔舒服囉.. 再加上最近啲所謂3D電影其實一啲都唔3D, 好似係齋為3D而3D咁, 完全係毫無誠意可言嘅隨波逐流.. 又可能係3D已經唔再吸引到我啦, 除非2D完全被淘汰, 否則我都應該會繼續支持睇2D嘅我諗~~
have you noticed recently that many movies come with a 3D version?? even the movie "Sex and Zen" is in the remaking to become the very first 3D porn in history!! =.= i really have no idea or perhaps i'm still not on par with the 3D trend, i still choose to watch the normal 2D versions of the movies..

i think it's quite unenjoyable having to wear that red-and-green-lens glasses throughout the whole 3D movie.. furthermore i think the most of the 3D movies are not 3D enough, as if just hopping on the 3D bandwagon and that's it.. or perhaps 3D is already nothing new and interesting to me, unless 2D gets eliminated, else i think i'll still continue supporting 2D movies in the future..

24.09.2010 | 閑情一日

通常過年過節, 我都唔會好似大部份人咁一窩蜂請假.. 反而我鐘意平日無啦啦請一日假, 唔係為咗咩特別節目, 而係想好好咁享受一日嘅清閑.. 當世界正在忙碌嘅時候, 唯我可以暫且放慢步伐, 確實係一大樂事也..

例如自己一個人靜坐咖啡室內, 喺完全不受干擾嘅情況之下, 嘆杯熱茶食件蛋糕, 再加一本書消磨整個下晝.. 如是悠閑嘅生活, 邊個(闊太少奶奶除外)話唔係人生一大高尚享受呢??
i don't usually take leaves during festive seasons like many out there do, instead i like to sparingly take a day off on a normal day, not for any planned trip or running errands, but just for the sake of enjoying a no-string-attached day.. when the whole world is busy but i can slow down my pace and watch the word spins, this is considered something blissful to myself..

for instance, have myself sitting alone in a cafe, under a totally relaxing ambience sipping a cup of hot tea and eating a slice of cake, reading a book to kill a whole afternoon's time.. who (excluding posh-class housewives) wouldn't say this is some kind of luxury lifestyle??

22.09.2010 | 中秋快樂

八月十五, 公司每年都會有個小小中秋慶祝會, 大家一齊食月餅猜燈謎.. 左邊係同事MY親手整嘅上海月餅, 有進步喎.. :)
it's mid-autumn, and our company has the ritual of little celebration where we gather to eat mooncake and guess riddles.. the mooncake on the left is baked by colleague MY, it tastes very nice.. :)

每一年呢個時候哩, 我哋都會喺同一個位置用一個構架影番幅合照, 指定動作咁囉.. 同往年啲相拍埋一齊睇, 原來我係一年肥過一年呀該煨~~ :(
every year during this time, we will take a group photo at the same location in the same arrangement, as if it's a procedure.. i put the photos from previous years side by side, only so sadly to find that i'm getting fatter each year~~ :(

每年都會有猜燈謎助興, 我好似連續三年都係贏家, 實在係愧對各位同事喇, 哈哈!! 今年獎品係個錢罌, 特別之處係, 你要搞掂個迷宮先可以開蓋拎返啲錢出嚟, 好玩喎~~ :p
there'll always be riddle guessing game every year, and if not mistaken i've won the prizes for 3 years in a row, so sorry to other colleagues, haha!! this year i got a piggy bank, the special thing is, you can only open it to take out the money after you solve the maze, interesting.. :p

happy mid-autumn to everyone!!
