Heath Ledger is dead!

Heath Ledger is dead. I don't why this thing bugging is not that I'm one of the his biggest fan or what. I kind like him in "10 things I hate about you" movie. I only knew when I tune to Channel E! News, and only got a bit part of it. I mean really. But it's not like a big news at all. Then I waited for Daily 10. His death is only at number 10 news. I though a big talented star like him, news about his death should be number 1. And the number 1 story is about Mischa Burton DUI. Like it's a big news at all. This is from channel dedicated the whole 30 minutes news of Britney when she she was taken to hospital. I don't know why it make me sad. Maybe because he is around my age and he has a lot of thing going on. New batman movie, everybody praise him a lot as a Joker. A daughter and ex fiance. I didn't know( or naive me) that he used drugs. I mean like is River Phoenix all over again. A young star died because of drug. What a waste. Maybe it's true. Money and popularity means nothing at all. But I don't have all of that, is that mean I'm not happy? maybe some part of the time, but I guess love from my family and friends push me to live. So, never misjudge the power of nagging father and true friends, will miss them when they not there.

My 5 year service award

Saturday night, the office organized the annual dinner at The Westin. Well, first place the hotel is in the middle of town, and it's sturday noght, well you do the math. Lulily, I'm not driving. Kesian Mek tod, dahla terlepas simpang, kena pusing lagi sekali. The dinner, well, ..............................? the theme is Oscar night. Well I went as a guy, maybe because to save budget and nobody said that I have to dress as a woman. But I'm so looking forward to receive my 5 years service award. It's mean I will get money na the plaque!!!!

How I've got the job

5 years, so what does it mean? I still remember when I apply the job after finish the final exam. Seriously, I don't want to continue study. I bought the star or NST, I can't remember, copy the e-mail address and went to CC near my house and just blindly send my resume. So the day was on Saturday where I already bought my bus ticket to balik kampung( before raya) for tomorrow. I'm on the way to KLCC to watch the first "Harry Potter" movie. I'm in the bus when I've got the call from my friend's phone, that somebody called me regarding job interview. So when I get back, I called the number and it was Ms. Soo asked me to come for interview on Monday. So, I need to burn my bus ticket. The office in Kelana Jaya, but I still can't remeber what positon and worst what company is it. Luckily my housemate knows the building. Went I reached the office, I still can't remember what position I'm apllying so when she asked me to fill the form, I stuck in that column, luckily she said to me it's DAta Entry Clerk. Well the interview went smoothly, I guess ( if not, well I'm not here). When she asked me that the job will be boring because I need to sit in fron of computer all day long, basically I just said fine with it, I love computer. then, went I went back, I have the feelings that I will get the job. Sure enough when I get back home, I recieved the call for second interview. So when I got to my hometown for the Raya that year, I know when I comeback next year, I already have a job. I am greatful because, it's my first interview and I don't have to run all over the town to find a job.

My first Anuual Dinner

The dinner was held in Bandar Sri Damansara Club. It was Chinese dinner with 13 courses. Well, that time we have lucky draw and I've got a "Steam Iron" which is the one that I need most. I still commute between shah Alam and Kelana Jaya with 1 taxi from my home to the bus stop. 1 bus from the highway to Kelana jaya and 1 feeder bus to the office and I still need to walk and using bridge to the office. When I go home, to save money, I need to take bus until all the way to Klang and wait until 8.30pm to get bus to Section 7, Shah alam. Then in the dinner we play the" scissors and paper game" where all of us( about 15 ) were given RM 10 each and we need to compete with aothers. I f we won't we can take the others money. Well guess what, I've won. I've got RM 150 cash on that night. I don't know that I raelli good in this game or the others sucks. This is my first time also see other people drunks and babling nonsense. I't quite an experience.

I think I've change and grow through all this 5 years ( mentally and physically). From the youngest staff in the office 5 years ago to the not so young staff now. From Data Entry Clerk to FD Admin to FDC.I'm very greatful and happy here. I manage to surround me with all the good people, great friendships, a lot of opportunity to visit other countries whether for business or just for fun. This is my "cheese". Will I stay another 5 years, well time will tell.

2008 and stuff!

2008 and stuff!
Hope that is not too late to write about my new year resolution.

2008 Resolutions

1. Too loose some weights- really , I need to do some drastic measure in food and excercise. Hopefully to lose 1 kg per week.

2. To save a lot of money- seriously I need to be not to spending my money.

Well just some thoughts I gathered during my long holidays.

Britney Spears - falls from grace. I still remember when the first time , I heards her song, (I thought she was black singer). She is so sweet and innocence. Well, I stop pay her attention when she come out with the sexy music video, 'I'm a slave for you". I thought that is not classy enough and too much revealing. Frankly, I'm quite happy when Justin dumoped her. I wonder how can she lived with all the papparazzi following her around.

Video game championship - I flipped the channel and stop at Channel V when I saw the somekind of video game championship. what struck me the most was the was a commentator in the game. They show the players play the game and really like comment that we've heard when watching football. Well, nowadays vplaying video games is a sport, because last time I check , it just for geek. Who knows!

E! Channel - Well, seriously , I hook-up with the this channel now. My favourite segment of course E! News and E! True Hollywood Story( THS). (How else I know about Britney Spears and stuff. She is everyday in the E! News). Yesterday I watched the THS of Will Smith. It tells about his story for early childhood until now.I thought Will is short for William, but his is Williard. He is actualy a great student but choose to become an artist instead. Well, it is not a bad choice.

Extra School fee - I really fed-up about this. It just RM 5 extra get over it. why these parents compplain so much about this. Why can't you pay extra for your own kids education? It is not matter to you when the ciggarettes price become more pricey? ) by the way it's more than RM 5) or to buy more jewellery or arcopal set. It's not enough now you don't have to pay for textbook, you still not want to pay more. It's like Malay says " Dah bagi betis, nak paha" (well that is utara slang anyway).It is worth it if you can pay extra with all the problems that the teachers will face later with your child attidude or from you. My motto is, if you can subscribe to Astro, you can pay the schooll fee.

That's all for now!
