Personality Tests

Date: Sunday, August 31, 2008
Time: 4:29 PM

I did the personality tests on Alexander's post . I find parts of analysis quite accurate and true . Here's just part of the analysis .

How true does it depict me ?

I don't know . But , It makes me feel dam good being me :-)

These aren't the analysis for the first test . Its the ones for next test following the first test .

Here is the analysis:

1. You've got great self-confidence and you're full of charm. Most guys who get to know you will be attracted to you. You are far from sweet and proper; your intriguing personality fascinates them. Most guys find it easy to fall for a girl like you.

2. Guys see you as being a thinker and a careful person. They will be really attracted to this quality in you, but you need to learn to speak your mind, otherwise people will find you too shy and quiet. Learn to relax and lighten up--it's okay to have fun sometimes. When you learn to develop your fun-loving side, guys are going to flock to your side.

I totally , absolutely , 100% trust these statements . Hehe .

Who wouldn't ?

Week no.1

Date: Saturday, August 30, 2008
Time: 10:51 PM

I had once , anticipated , wondered and tried to imagine what Orientation at IMU and my first week there would be like .

Those were months and weeks ago .

Today , I can proudly say that I've lived through my first week !!!

In short , I would say that it was TERRIFIC !

I've found friends . I've learnt first aid . I've survived nights alone in the condominium .

Most importantly .

I've done things that I would not have imagined myself doing . Embarassing yet fun .

Back home in Tampin now . Jaded from all the activities and socialising . Just want to stop talking and sleep .

Zzz ...

Tampin Hill

Date: Thursday, August 21, 2008
Time: 9:35 AM

My neighbour , my two brothers and I went to climb Tampin Hill today .

Normally , my trips to the hill would just end at the small waterfall at half-way up the hill . But , this time I climbed with my 2 brothers up to the peak .

Our climb started around 7.15 am . The distance of our journey up the hill was measured by the electricity poles . The poles starts from 1 . You'll reach pole number 44 when you are half-way up the hill .

After pole number 44 , the path to the peak was really spooky . The course was entirely empty , as if its haunted . The trees hid behind mist .

My two brothers

It was a struggle to reach the summit . It route was steep and we didn't know how many poles we had to pass to arrive at the top . We wondered what was behind each turning .

And finally , after an hour of perpetual climbing , we reached the peak . The weather up there was cooling .

After a tiring climb , we just had to have prove . Here's our evidence . My neighbour chickenend out half way up . So , no photos of him .

Elder brother

Younger brother

Me :)

Tampin Hill is a good place for cardio workout . It really keeps your heart pumping .

If you are out of shape , this is the best place to slim yourself down . I've heard that a super overweight guy ( Tampin-ese ) climbed the hill each evening , and after a while , he was found super healthy looking .

If you ever visit Tampin , Tampin Hill is one of the spots you should not miss .

Plus , its good for camwhoring .

Nothing to do

Date: Tuesday, August 19, 2008
Time: 8:18 PM

Its the last days of my long holiday . I'm wondering how I should savour these final days .

What do you do when you are bored ?

What do you do when everybody's busy with something and you have nothing to do ?

What do you do when all means of entertainment fail to entertain you ?

What do you do to keep your mind busy ?

What do you do to make time pass faster ?

I'm bored now .

My brain's empty .

PS: WALL-E , the movie , is for 10 year olds . Somebody fell asleep watching it .

To be the pride of your country .

To put your best foot forward for your country .

To be the heroes of your country .

To make olympic history .

Remember the post about Fly FM's Music Moolah that I posted on Tuesday . I stated in that post that I would be continuing my " quest " to earn quick easy cash the following day .

That's one . Now , do you remember my 2nd reason to why I was a dope in my last post ? I stated that I made the wrong choices and that cost me a lot . Also , I stated that I lost when I could have easily won .

Both of these are related . Here's what happened .

It was Wednesday morning . Feeling lucky , I sms-ed "moolah" and sent it to 33399 . ( The requirements to join Fly FM's Music Moolah ) . Each sms cost 50 cents . I sent around a total of 8 sms .

As I listened to the songs being played on the radio , I listed them on a paper . But , there were times when the sucky lousy pathetic useless radio would go off course and I had to tune it so that I had a better reception . Sometimes , I would accidentally tune it to Hitz Fm .

Both radio stations were quite close . Both aired English songs . Therefore , people ( like me ) would think that we are listening to Fly FM when , in actual fact , we were listening to Hitz FM when a song was played . It is only when the radio Djs speaks , will we realize we're listening to the wrong channel .

Something like that happened throughout my radio-listening marathon . I listed every song I heard on the radio . At times , i accidentally tuned the radio to Hitz FM . But , stupid me listed all the songs played by the other radio channel on the paper too without canceling them off later .

At the end of the hour , i received a call . It was a KL number starting with 03 .

" Could it really be them ?" I thought . My heart started beating rapidly . My hands started shaking . I took a couple of deep breaths to diminish the evil-doings of my nerves . Instincts told me that Fly FM was calling . Gathering my courage , I answered the call .

I was right .

It was Fly FM . It was either Phat Fabes or Ben on the other line .

I tried my best and gave the DJ 5 songs on my list . I was confident that those songs were played .

To my dismay , my high hopes of being RM500 richer were shattered !


Apparently , I got one of the songs wrong .

It angered me that I actually had several other songs on my list but I had to choose the wrong one . I was furious that the radio had to go off tune . I was infuriated at myself for not canceling the wrong songs off my list after realizing I was on the wrong radio channel .

It was Sarah Bareillies's Love Song that snowballed my RM500 to the next nominated sms-er in the next segment .

After what just happened , I was determined to get back the money . I sent sms-es as if they were free of charge . I was desperate to gain back the money and also my dignity . I felt stupid and embarrassed at what just happened that it turned me moody the whole day .

The most nightmarish thing was I even heard my self blow away my chances when the recording with the Dj was played on the radio .

Too caught up and desperate , I didn't realize my escalating phone bill. Its now 3 times the amount I need to pay per month . Thankfully , my grandma gave me a big "ang pau" . Therefore , I guess I'll be using that to alleviate the damages .

Although Fly Fm Music Moolah is still on until Sunday , I've manage to stop myself from sending more sms-es .

To tell you the truth , I feel like I've just been released from the devil's grasp . I don't feel moody like those days when I was super caught up because of Fly Fm .

What happened made me realize why Greed was one of the 7 deadliest sins .

Greed is tantamount to no good . In a way , it acts like drugs . Once you start , you cannot stop . It gets you addicted and seek for more . When you feel the need to stop , Greed tempts , encourages and motivates you to continue . If you've fallen in , too deep , Greed destroys you .

So , becareful . Be wise .

I've learnt my lesson .

PS: Do not mention these words or sing this song when I'm in your presence .
  • Sarah Bareillis Love Song
  • Sarah Bareillis
  • Sarah
  • Bareillis
  • Love Song
I'll chop , grind , mince , marinate and barbeque you with my own hands .

Help ! I'm a dope !

Date: Wednesday, August 13, 2008
Time: 11:10 PM

Early in the morning , I went to CIMB bank to open a bank account .

Filled out forms , signed here , signed there and waited for the staff to do his magic .

When everything was settled , I was required to key in my pin number .

And so , I went up to the ATM machine and keyed in the numbers I wanted . When I was finished with it , the CIMB ATM machine printed out a receipt ( like how all ATM machines do ) .

Being very curious of the typings on the receipt , I chose to take my own sweet time and read it word by word , while leaving the Bankcard still in the machine .

Just when I reached out my hands for the card , it automatically entered the ATM machine .

And the screen showed something like Maaf sth sth sth . Stating that my card got " eaten " .

I went back to seek help from the staff . But he said they couldn't open the machine as they didn't have the keys to it . Furthermore , he told me that I had to wait till the people from KL who has the key to open it . Therefore , I don't have the card with me now .

I think this was the first time something like this had ever happened in the bank .

The man and the other staff must have thought , " Where got people get Bankcard and lose Bankcard in the same hour one ?"

I feel so embarrassed and stupid and also pathetic .

I did something else that made me felt even more dumb than Dumb and Dumber . It had a straight forward answer to it , but I made the wrong choice . And that cost me ... A LOT ( in terms of cash and emotions ) .

Because of the wrong choice , I lost when I could have easily won .

I felt so terrible today , that I have to keep telling myself , " What's pass is past , tomorrow's a new day and a new beginning . "

Then , I thought to myself . A doctors job involves making decisions and choices . One slight mistake may cost a life . Throughout my 20 years of living , when it comes to situations where I had to make choices , I made a majority of wrong choices .

I worry for my future patients . I worry for their lives . I worry that I'll be a lean mean killing machine .

Music MOOLAH !

Date: Tuesday, August 12, 2008
Time: 4:34 PM

Have you heard of Fly fm Music Moolah ??

Fly fm is giving away money . A lot of money . RM 50 , 000 to be exact . All we have to do is name 5 songs and the artiste who sang those songs that were played from the beginning of the hour . Yep , its as simple as kacang ! At least that's what I thought .

You just have to register and send "moolah" to 33399 . Each SMS cost RM 0.50 .

Then , just sit down and start listening to at least 5 songs and wait to be called . It started on the 4th and will be ending on the 17th .

If you are super lucky , and you get called and get all 5 songs correct . You win RM 500 .

If you are jinxed , the money will snow ball to the next segment . And you waste the money spent on the sms-es you made .

I don't think I'm the born with super good luck . But , what the heck , I'll just give it a try .

6 more days to try for RM500 or more .

I sent out 5 sms-es with really high hopes of being called by fly fm . During the whole 1 hour , my fingers were trembling . Don't ask me why I shook . My body just works that way .

At the end of the hour , some other girl turned out to be the winner .

I really wonder how Fly fm nominate who to be called .

How many sms-es do i have to send to get nominated ? How fast do I have to send the sms ? How early do I have to send it ?

Anyways , no luck to day . Continue tomorrow .

Tuesday , 12/08/08
4.00pm - Invested RM2.50 .

King of all stomach bloaters

Date: Saturday, August 9, 2008
Time: 11:10 PM

My tummy is super bloated now . Just came back from my younger brother's farewell dinner . He'll be flying off to Russia to pursue his studies in Medicine . Because of that , my dad gave a treat to my neighbours who are as close as family to us .

We went to a restaurant at Batu Kikir in Negeri Sembilan called Restoran Ban Hing .

This restaurant is well known for their unique dishes and special ingredients used in their dishes . Moreover , Ban Hing restaurant has a few awards and trophies in their pockets . They were the champion in the International Kitchen Emperor Challenge Match of 2007 . They were also champion in the International Cake Art Competition 2007 .

See the golden chef trophy ?

Its funny . A restaurant like this should have earned a visit from tv programmes like " Ho Chiak " and " Journey with Jason " . But suprisingly , it hasn't .

My dad ordered a total of 8 dishes . But by the time we had dish no.4 . Our tummies were already quite full . Thus , we had no choice but to cancel one dish ( chicken ) .

Our dinner started off with titbits . Most Chinese restaurants would use either salted peanuts , flour-coated peanuts or keropok as their titbits .

But not Restoran Ban Hing .

They used braised nuts , Macademia nuts and dried squid instead . The Macademia and dried squid were fresh and crispy .

The first dish we had was cold dish .

Everything on it was super yummy . My dad specially ordered scallops as they were also known for their seafood . They had ( clockwise starting from the green beans ) crunchy beans friend with bamboo clams , fish-prawn balls , fried dried oysters , some fried breadcrum thingie with yummy stuffing and sesame fried chicken .

As for the second dish , we had " 3 flavors of prawns " ( translated from chinese ) .

There are 3 different kind of prawns in this dish i.e. fried yam-coated prawns , prawns in fruit salad and prawns cooked in ( i think ) eggs sauce . The prawns are huge , fresh and juicy .

The 3rd dish is called " Vegetable Bucket " .

As you can see , the food is presented in a bucket . It consist of all kinds of meat and vegetables . All arranged " level by level " . Chicken , barbeque pork , roast duck and broccoli on the first level . Then comes the scallops , sea cucumbers , dried oyster , shitake mushrooms and the fish bladders . The roast duck was very very delicious . The ingredients and sauces used to marinate the duck have penetrated into its flesh .

The 4th dish was steam fish .

The fish we had was called " Ikan Hantu " / " Ghost Fish " . I don't know why . The fish was steamed to perfection . Its flesh was soft and had no fishy smell . By then , most of us were already 3/4 filled even though we had 3 more dishes coming our way .

We had sharks fin as the 5th dish .

Its presentation was different from normal chinese restaurants . It tasted quite different from the normal Shark's fin soup that we order . Its a bit sweet .

6th dish : roast duck .

This is the most average of all 7 dishes we had . Its not as delectable as i expected it to be from its crispy-looking appearance . Just like normal roast ducks we buy from markets and duck rice shops .

We had Frog Mee Hoon as the final dish .

Frogs !!! A lot of frogss !!! This was a very special dish . We anticipated this dish right from the start . But , too bad , we couldn't enjoy it to the fullest as we were all bloated by the time it came . Frogs are actually very toothsome . The texture of the flesh is something like a combination of fish and chicken . Its soft yet not as soft as fish . Its tough but not as tough as chicken . The Mee Hoon itself was tasty too .

That's all of the dishes we had . The bill came to a total of RM 874 for a table of 16 people . Its approximately RM 55 per head .

It is quite expensive . But , its uniqueness and heavenly-tasted dishes makes it all worth it .

I'm like advertising for Restoran Ban Hing with no commisions and advertising fees . But , I love food , I find the place special and want others to know about it .

Here's the address and contact number of the place :

No.104-A , Jalan Besar ,
72200 Batu Kikir ,
Negeri Sembilan .
Tel : 06-4981680
Hp : 013-6098228 , 012-9306888

If you are coming Tampin , head towards Kuala Pilah . From Kuala Pilah , continue driving straight till you reach the Kuala Pilah border . When you are out from Kuala Pilah , go on straight and you'll reach the border of Jempol . Continue straight on a little bit further . The restaurant's on your right .

Restoran Ban Hing rules !

A day of cleaning brings no cheer

Date: Friday, August 8, 2008
Time: 9:48 PM

My legs are killing me ! I finally packed and moved my stuff to my ( considerably ) bare room at Bukit Jalil . Went up to KL , early in the morning , today to clean the whole condo unit so that its squeeeeeaky clean !

The condo unit that I'll be staying at used to have occupants . Well , for some mysterious reasons , both of them moved out just when I'm moving in . Very eerie eh ? The master bedroom was occupied by the condo owner's nephew . He moved out from his room already but his stuff are still everywhere in the condo .

Speaking of him , he actually came by the condo to get some of his stuff today . His name's Joshua . I didn't get the chance to see him . But my dad did . According to my dad , he's looks like a Eurasian .

And the thing is ... Eurasians are , without a single bit of doubt , gorgeous ! And i missed him !!

Where was I ? In the toilet .

@#$% ! My dad said he looked handsome . And i downright trust my dad's taste . Sadly , he's moved out . * mourn*

Therefore , I'll be the only , very super lonely , one occupying the whole condo .

I don't naturally clean , vacuum , sweep , mop , scrub , wipe and polish for hours alone . But I had to today . My dad and younger brother had to settle some stuff then only join me in my cleaning " spree ".

The whole condo was an utter mess . When you step in , you can feel the foulness of the air . Dust layered the tiles . That was the living room I'm talking about .

If the living room was a mess , then the kitchen would be total monstrosity .

The stoves were oily and dusty . Try to picture a whole stove area , with splashes of cooking oil ( on the walls , the stove and the floor ) , topped with dust as icing . One would just shudder and flee upon the sight .

I started off at around 8 am from my room .

The four corners of my room looks like this before the cleaning fairy came . Its actually quite spacious and may fit another person . But , I neeeed my privacy .

After the vacuuming , sweeping , scrubbing , wiping , moving in , assembling and feng-shui calculating , my room turned out like this .

That box has my microwave , moving it out to the kitchen when I've moved in

Nice or not ? I think its sweet and simple . Just the way i like it .

After my room was done , my dad and bro came to my rescue . They cleaned up the oily and dusty wet kitchen for me while i cleaned the living room and the dry kitchen . Thank God they came !

Everything came to an end at around 6 pm . That's around 10 hours of non-stop cleaning for me .

I amaze myself sometimes :P .

By the time we reached home , my whole body ached , especially my legs . But , it was all worth the ache . I'm super contented with my room and condo , now that its squeeeeeaky clean . Well , that wasn't the only thing that turned out squeeeeeaky clean .

Do you see the shine ?

I think the detergent was super strong that it make my hands shine naturally ( no oil ) .

*** NOTE *** :

Masterbed room with attached bathroom and medium sized room for rent .
  • Preferably IMU students .
  • Its at Vista Komanwel Block B , on the 23rd floor , condominium no.3 .
  • Kitchen has a water filter , fridge , electronic hot water flask ( it boils , reboils and keeps the water warm ) and a functional stove .
  • Bathroom is medium sized .
  • Has balcony .
Masterbedroom :
  1. Big and spacious . Enough for 2-3 person .
  2. Has an attached bathroom .
  3. A queen-sized bed .
  4. Air-conditioned .
Medium sized room :

  2. Air-conditioned .
Why you should rent these rooms ?
  1. Its just opposite IMU . You can wake up 5 minutes before lectures .
  2. I've cleaned up the whole place . So , its now very clean . In addition , its still quite new and was well-maintained by the owner .
  3. Both rooms have picturesque views . I'm serious !
  4. The condo owner is trustworthy and friendly . He's willing to help you if you need any assistance .
  5. The living room is empty ( no couch , no tv ) but its a good place to chat and study .
  6. I'll be there for 2 years plus from 25th of August of 2008 :)
  7. I need a condo-mate . Loneliness might destroy me mentally .
Please DO consider , spread the word to your friends and drop a comment if you are interested . I'll give you the owner's contact and you can discuss the price and ask whatever you want to know . He's kind and trustworthy . If you aren't satisfied with some of the room conditions . Let him know . He'll try his best to assist you and fix the problem .

Keep in mind that I'm not the owner . Just another IMU student .

Long Hair Vs Short Hair

Date: Wednesday, August 6, 2008
Time: 8:56 PM

Long hair says , " I'm hot because ..."
  1. I'm more sensuous to look at .
  2. I sway and move .
  3. I reflect light .
  4. I trap scents e.g perfume better . I smell hotter !
  5. I'm the ultimate symbol of feminity !
  6. I save money on hair cuts .
  7. I can be straightened , curled and styled .
  8. I can be tied up to be neat and tidy .
But Short hair says , " You suck because ..."
  1. More precious time is wasted on washing , straightening , curling and styling you .
  2. You irritate and heat up the skin on the neck .
  3. Sometimes , you get in the way . Damn disturbing ! Especially when it gets into your mouth when you are eating .
  4. You tie knots to yourself and consequently tangle up .
  5. You use more shampoo , more conditioner , more hair scrunchies . More MONEY !
  6. You are dangerous . Remember the Genting Spaceshot rumour? It is possible .
  7. You attract weirdos with long hair fetish !!
  8. You are hard to manage !
  9. You shed a LOT . Everywhere ! Especially in Bathrooms till you clog the drains.
  10. You are more prone to split ends .
  11. You are heavy .
Long hair says , " Well , you suck too ... "
  1. You have only limited styles . No pony tail . No braids . No buns .
  2. You don't look sensuous .
  3. You don't reflect light .
  4. You need frequent hair cuts .
  5. You don't smell as good .
  6. You don't have my good sways and moves .
  7. You are less feminine .
Short hair laughs out loud , " Wahahaha ... I'm so much better ! "
  1. I'm easy to manage .
  2. I'm not a pain in the ass . I don't get into mouths .
  3. I save time . I dry faster . I clean faster . No time is wasted on styling .
  4. I keep the neck cool and itch-free .
  5. I save money . Less shampoo , conditioners and moisturisers or wax used .
  6. I don't tangle up as much as you do .
  7. I don't shed and clog up bathroom drains .
  8. I may not be sensous but I'm funky , bubbly and as head-turning . There are heaps of cute hairstyles .
  9. I'm less prone to split ends .
  10. I'm lighter on the head .
And so , Short Hair won the intense battle with more pros and less cons . Whereas long hair lost like how Malaysia lost to Chelsea .

I had my haircut today !!!

Still feel very awkward looking at it . Need more time to get used to it .

My head feels super light now . And it doesn't shed as much as long hair does . ( Yes , its true !! No need to go to Yun Nam Hair Care Centre )

Feel a bit shy to put up the photo . All I can say is , I look ... different .

Something like Cleopatra's hair do . But without the super horizontal fringe .

Plus , want my photo , got to pay !! :P

Nope , not me . This is my hot sista !

Pai Seh laa~ Don't Laugh!

of godmothers , tiramisu and trains

Date: Saturday, August 2, 2008
Time: 1:31 PM

P/S : This is a super long post . Beware !

Part I : My godmother

Do you people have godmothers ( kai ma ) or godfathers ( kai ba ) ? I personally don't believe in this kind of relationships .

I went to KL yesterday to spend some time with Wee Sim on his birthday .

During the whole journey , from Tampin bus station right to KL Pudu Raya , I sat with this middle-aged lady who could talk incessantly to me in the bus .

I wasn't really in the mood to talk as I was really sleepy and felt nausea . But , it would have been very rude of me to just leave her talking alone . I , therefore , made a little conversation with her .

She was the one talking 95 % of the time . Whereas , the other 5 % involved me making " oh " , " mmm " , and " hahaha"s .

It was nice chatting with her coz i didn't have to think of things to say . But i felt like screaming at the bus driver to drive faster so that the lady and i would part ways ASAP .

It was unlucky of me to board that bus . Of all 7 days , the Transnasional bus driver decided yesterday was the day to take the Kampung road to KL . Instead of a 1 hour 30 minutes ride , it turned out to be a 2 hour 40 minutes ride .

From the chat , I found out she lived with her husband ( who was a chinese medicine doctor ) in Puchong and didn't have any children . She had many godchildren though ( kai lui and kai zai ) and they were scattered all over Malaysia .

We , eventually , talked about our backgrounds and our conversation became more personal .

Surprisingly , she was same age as my mum , her husband was same age as my dad , both her hubby and my parents were in the same field in their career , and she had a goddaughther who looked like me . All of a sudden , we had so much in common .

She, then , started rejoicing that she met me and the coincidences between her life and mine . She reiterated there was an affinity ( yuan2 in chinese ) between us .

Unawarely , without asking my agreement , she blurted out in chinese : " Hahaha ! Another goddaughther ! That's so good ! " .

I froze .

Everything happened so fast . She then gave me a Dunhill pen , a bookmark , her hubby's name card with her name and her contact number on it and asked me to visit her when I'm free . Again , I thought that it would be rude to suddenly reject her . Thus , I joined her in her joy with the thought : " this is a joke . "

In return , I gave her my contact number and my name .

When we reached Pudu Raya , she walked with me , holding my hand like a mother holds her child . Before our paths diverged , she told me to be extra vigilant wherever i went .

Finally , we shook hands and promised to keep in touch .

On my way to the LRT station , i took much thought into what just happened . Should I maintain this rapport between this lady and me ? Or should I just don't care at all ? I decided to just wait and see . Maybe the lady would just forget about me too .

Part II : Tiramisu

I met up with wee sim at the Universiti lrt station . We went to Bangsar's hottest spot to have a bite of the Tiramisu cake that he loved so much .

The cafe is called Alexis . The setting inside Alexis was very classy . You would feel super out of place if you went in with t-shirt and shorts .

The Tiramisu with cognac was very yummy . Not too sweet , not too creamy , not too strong . Just downright perfect .

It cost us whopping RM 13 per slice . Expensive .

The had a variety of cakes . I would want to return to Alexis for other cakes next time .

We went to SS2 and Sungei Wang to shop for clothes then . And I went to KL Sentral when the clock struck 8 pm to take the 8.30pm train to Tampin .

Part III : Trains

After Wee Sim and I parted ways , I went to the platform myself . There were 2 trains waiting to be filled at that moment . I wasn't sure which one to board . The situation there was very busy . People were pushing and entering coaches .

The train on my right had a sign that said it would go to Butterworth while the other train on my left had a sign that said it would go to W.Bahru ( or something like that which I wasn't familiar with ) . I knew where Butterworth was and it was North . Besides , I saw some Tampinese boarding that train . So I boarded the W.Bahru train undefinitely .

Up on the train , I settled down and started reading the novel I brought up . I didn't feel the need to confirm that I was in the right train until it started moving .

Feeling very insecure and uncertain , I ask the man beside me where the train was heading to .

To my shock , he said : " Kelantan " .

@$%*# , I was on the wrong train !!

I jumped up and quickly headed to the door . But by that time , the train was gaining speed already . At one point , I felt like opening the door and jump out the coach like in the movies . Then again , all those action were done by the stunt men . And i wasn't a trained one . I would have broken all the bones in my body if i were to jump out from the train . That was a stupid idea .

Then , a lady who passed by told me that i could only get out of the train at Kajang . My plan to the problem was to get down at Kajang , take the komuter to Seputeh and follow my aunty ( who was going back to Tampin ) back home .

So I called my aunty , to see if she had left KL . Unfortunately , she was already half-way there and was in Seremban at the moment .

At that moment , I felt like crying . My heart throbbed rapidly . I shivered with fear . I had cold sweat . I panicked .

I told my aunty about my predicament . I told her that I had boarded the train to Kelantan and would be stopping at Kajang . At first , she suggested that I went to my uncle's house instead of coming back to Tampin .

Then it hit me . Why did the train pass by Midvalley , Seputeh and heading to Kajang next ? It was on the path towards Seremban . I told my aunty immediately .

Then everything started falling into place . The train WAS going to Kelantan . But , it was going south first and then , make a U-turn towards the north .

Those were music to my ears . I felt so relieved . I was going back to Tampin tonight after all .

It was blur and stupid of me to have undefinitely boarded the train without asking around .

My brain must be very rusty . Hai ... Very blur these days .

A lesson learnt . I'm sure I'll never repeat it again . I'll kill myself if i do .

Time: 12:14 AM

I'm trying to collect good Malaysian jokes from the internet and compile them into a file . Its just for entertainment purposes when i am away from home and lonely .

Its really hard to get good ones that can really make you laugh till your stomach starts cramping . Most of them just manage to give you a little tickle or make you grin inside . Therefore i call it "Project SMILE " and not " Project Laugh " .

Many I found are about a guy named Ah Beng and the things that he do . Here's one that , i think , is quite good .

Ah Beng bought a new mobile.
He sent a message to everyone from his Phone Book & said,
'My Mobile No. Has changed.
Earlier it was Nokia 3310. Now it is 6610'

Ah Beng : I am a Proud, coz my son is in Medical College .
Friend: Really, what is he studying.
Ah Beng: No, he is not studying, they are Studying him.

Ah Beng : Doctor, in my dreams, I play football every night.
DR: Take this tablet, you will be ok.
Ah Beng : Can I take tomorrow, tonight is final game.

Ah Beng : If I die, will u remarry?
Wife: No! I'll stay with my sister. But if I die will u remarry?
Ah Beng : No, I'll also stay with your sister.

Ah Beng : People consider me as a 'GOD'
Wife: How do you know??
Ah Beng : When I went to the
Fisherman's Wharf at Taman Desa last night, everybody said,
Oh GOD! U have come again.

Ah Beng complained to the police: 'Sir, all items are missing,
except the TV in my house.'
Police: 'How the thief did not take TV?'
Ah Beng : 'I was watching ManU bungkus Locky Blu's Stoke City,what... '

Ah Beng comes back to his car & find a note saying 'Parking Fine'
He Writes a note and sticks it to a pole 'Thanks for complement.'

How do you recognize Ah Beng in School?
He is the one who erases the notes from the book when the teacher erases
the board.

Once Ah Beng was walking he had a glove on one hand and not on other.
So the man asked him why he did so. He replied that the weather forecast
announced that on one hand it would be cold and on the other hand it would
be hot.

Ah Beng in
National Press Club and his cellular phone rings. He picks it up and
Says 'Hello, how did you know I was here?'

Ah Beng : Why are all these people running?
Man - This is a race, the winner will get the cup
Ah Beng - If only the winner will get the cup, why others running?

Teacher: 'I killed a person' convert this sentence into future tense
Ah Beng : The future tense is 'u will go to jail'

Ah Beng told his maid: 'Go and water the plants!'
Servant: 'It's already raining.'
Ah Beng : 'So what? Take umbrella and go.'

A man asked Ah Beng why Ahmad Badawi goes walking in the Evening and not
in the morning Ah Beng replied Ahmad Badawi is PM not AM
