Chronicles from br1ckfield’s library..

4 more days till Final examination!!

I’ve been studying in the library constantly this couple of days. This examination is not easy, I hope I dont have to re-sit my entire paper if I fail.

There is no limit on the times you can sit for the examination (previously it was 4 times). Some of my classmates sat for the exam 3 – 4 times. I heard that someone even sat 10 times for it! (that would take 10 years!)

Being not able to pass the examination would be the biggest catastrophe of my life. If i fail, I would have to endure another year of weekend classes and my ambition as a lawyer would be on hold again.

Re-sitting for the exam is a big no-no. I have classmates turned weird because of that…

There is this particular middle aged lady in my class who expresses her stress in a funny way. While I was in the library couple of days ago, that lady approached me.

Lady: Leng jai..did you see who threw that farn hap (economic rice box) into the rubbish bin?
Me: err.. I think it�s the Indian lady.
Lady: (opens eye widely and started sulking) that�s my rice box�MMMMMMMMMMMM (flatten her lips ala Donald Duck and then proceeded to make some funny noises) stupid monkey..bitch..sui yann

I was shocked. I was wanted to laugh out loud but refrained myself as hard as possible. I immediately turned my head back to my notes. However, she stood there sulking for few minutes. Fortunately, she went back to her table and kept quiet.

Few minutes later, she banged the table with her hand. Now I understand why old ladies like iloveu go crazy.

Our condolence to Darren Kang Ten Hua’s Family would like to send our deepest condolence to the family of Darren Kang Ten Hua, a Sheffield University law student who was killed at Desa Seri Hartamas on 3.30am, Tuesday morning (06/07/2004).

News Straits Time reported that:-

Darren and his 24 years old fiancee and his two friends were heading towards Uncle Don’s Restaurant for supper after they had some drinks in a pub opposite the restaurant. As Kang and his friends were about to be seated outside the restaurant, group of eight youths believed to be in their 20s seated in the next table, passed some rude remarks about his girlfriend’s blouse.

However, his fiance told the Guan Ming Daily that “When we were walking to the restaurant, Darren was walking behind me. I told him to hurry up but he wanted me to say “I love you” before he would oblige. Hence, I Did. However, after that a few guys started to give us queer stares. Darren was angered by this and he confronted them. At least 15-16 guys are starting him with bare hand. Although Darren was on the ground then, they did not stop attacking him. I tried to help him but I was stopped by a passer-by. While I was trying to call for help on my mobile phone, I heard one assailant shouted “kill him”. Then one of the assailants reached for a steel bar from the bush and hit Darren on the head. ”

Darren was later sent to University Malaya Hospital for medical treatment but it was too late.

Btw, Happy Birthday to PEs 9 LOONG!!


Today, I wake up with a major headache due to the loud Morning Prayer from the flats behind my apartments.

Today is an auspicious day for the Malay behind my house to get marry so they have a Kenduri (party like event). At exactly 9am, they start the day with loud thanksgiving and blessing prayers over the microphone. God damn it, I only went to sleep at 3.30am last night and I thought I was having a bad dream.

However, that does not get me up from bed; I try effortlessly, tossing left and right to fall asleep anew. Finally, I give up at about 11am because they are blasting “Selamat Pengantin Baru” (Congratulation on your wedding day) song repetitively. Fuck, after that I have headache for the whole day.

The kenduri was quite happening. They have Kumpang (damn noisy), Lucky draw (that one last for 2 hours and the first number is 111) and fucking Karaoke session with lousy singers (No pitching at all). They only stop during the 1pm and 4pm prayers but it is short lived. The kenduri did not end until 5.30pm. Anyway, I took photos of the kenduri from my apartment.

Today, I have Domino Pizza’s Aloha Chicken pizza and Extravaganza pizza for dinner. I order thin crust pizza for both flavour. They taste like cheese and meat on crackers but delicious. That is a photo of my left over pizzas.

Today is also the birthday of Gillian Chung


Men’s rules

Got this from a forwarded message with some added comments from me..hehe

We always hear “the rules” from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side. These are our rules! Please note… these are all numbered “1” ON PURPOSE!

1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You’re a big girl. If it’s up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don’t hear us complaining about you leaving it down. (I STRONGLY AGREE)

1. Sunday sports. It’s like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.

1. Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That’s what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days .

1. If you won’t dress like the Victoria’s Secret girls, don’t expect us to act like soap opera guys.

1. Stop bitching about me to your friends. I’ll sue you for defamation if I could.

1. Stop being so possessive. Not every girls want to sleep with me.

1. If you think you’re fat, you probably are. Don’t ask us. (I do no agree though, most girls think that they are fat, even though all they have are just skin and bones)

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.

1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions and neither do we. (mmm..dont really agree on this one)

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is. (err)

1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that. (doesnt make sense)

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say nothing,” we will act like nothing’s wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don’t want an answer to, expect an answer you don’t want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine…Really.

1. Don’t ask us what we’re thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball, the shotgun formation, or monster trucks. (and sex)

1. You have enough clothes. (you have too much clothes in fact)

1. You have too many shoes. (yes, please donate some to the poor people please)

1. I am in shape. Round is a shape. (yup, fat means more to hug)

Anyone has anymore to add? 😀

exam blue

10 more days to exam…

The tension is starting to build up now. I am starting to lose sleep. Everyday I wake up, feeling more exhausted than the previous day. Everyday when I look at the past year questions and notes, I feel dumber than yesterday. I cannot remember anything!

10 days are all I have now!

goldfish memory

It has been a crazy week for me this week so far. Sometimes not because there is too much work to do but every so often, there are these amusing episodes which again, makes me wonder (like Sow) which circus I work for again??

One day at a senior management photo shoot session; we had a bunch of bosses there to have their annual photos taken. So after a really long time trying to get them to ?Look natural!? or ?Look candid!?, we decided to give them a break ? their smirks were beginning to look plastic. So we headed to the next room where they could chill out awhile. After awhile, one of the bosses ? Mr L ? entered the same room where we were having the photo shoot through a different entrance and here?s what happened?

Mr L: Eh! I didn?t realise there was another photo shoot going on.
Me: ?? It?s the same one, Mr L.
Mr L: No no! I don?t remember this (rattles the light stand) or this (points at chair) or that (gestures at something else in the garish room) just now.
Me: But that?s the same chair you were sitting on a while ago..
Mr L: No no! I remembered very clearly!
Me: (starring at him incredulously, wondering if he was pulling my foot) Erm.. Ok?


Oh well. At least he went on with the shoot, thinking that it was an entirely different setting and room altogether. Its like living a life of a goldfish? round and round the fish bowl, thinking its in a whole new different universe every few seconds or so. Simple.

That could be a good thing though. 😉
