2007 is surely a wedding year. From all my Malay friends like Bob, Leha, Nora a.k.a Melati, till my friends in Perth such as Danielle and my 'ko ko' Vin Chin, and most probably Tina too! Caroline's is the one that I was dying to attend. Because well the rest are mostly far far away, from Seremban, Pahang, then Perth, Macau or China. Carol's at Klang and it was a great opportunity to catch-up with my ex-colleagues whom I was very close to in Perth.
Well, unfortunately not many of them made it, only four of us in the end. But we were all very excited and had a great time!From Left: Weng Yew, Chia Pin, Pat and me, the Penang Food Restaurant's gang.
The very special individually-bowled shark fins soup.
And the very special five-happiness
Of course, Caroline looks great! Barry, his husband also looks extra handsome that night.
It was a great night, minus the Hokkien songs and oldies...
Don't ask me, the next one is definitely not me, ok?

And I was normally very excited to write a review in my blog, but this time I'm pretty lazy to do it. I guess it's just because I've grown older, or probably because I'm now a sports journalist, or it's just because I don't really feel so much like a Malaysian anymore? Damn, I'm actually feeling very lazy to write a review!
Okay, okay, let's do this... We can do a short one, by only talking about sports or sportsmen I like. Sounds good? Ok, you have no choice, right? I'm the one writing, not you... :p
My pick for Star of the Games: Yeoh Ken Nee
I first get to know this fellar back in 1999 Brunei Games where he got his first ever Sea Games gold. Today he is still a successful diver, better than ever, winning three gold medals. I don't know, even though I've know him, even though I see nothing special about this guy from the outside, I always feel that he really has the talent in him. When he decided to retire few years back for his studies, I felt really really bad because he was still at his peak. And it was a right choice for him to come back because since then, he had got the silver at the Asian Games! And this Sea Games just made it clear that he is the man whom divers from the world should be watching out for. I hope to see another historic result from him at the Olympics next year.
My pick for the Best Malaysian Team: Aquatics & Karate-do
14 gold from Aquatics, 8 gold from Karate-do. The results said it all, full-stop.
My Pick for the Worst Malaysian Team: Silat
I don't even watch this event. But I heard, yea I really just heard, that they have a few world champions or something. Then what happen in Thailand?
My Pick for the 'I'm damn happy for him' Athlete: Ooi Wei Siang & Josiah Ng
After the Ngs' brothers left, Wei Siang had to carry the burden to deliver. And like he'd told me, it is never easy to beat the Thais at their place in a subjective sports like gymnastics. He got a gold, luckily, but if there were fairer judging, I'm pretty sure it will be more than one gold. Anywayz, that was his first individual gold at the Sea Games, so I'm really happy for him! As for Josiah, he always failed to win gold at important games event so I was a bit worry. But when it was an all-Malaysian affairs final, I thought, ok now it doesn't matter anymore. But later I thought, no, no, if he loses, things will be bad on him from the media. So yea, another reason for me to be feeling the relief for him.
My Pick for the Most Precious Gold: Women's Basketball Team
Hello? They were playing in front of those thousands of Thai supporters and were behind at the beginning of the match. Then they slowly catch-up... I was only following the match through live score on the internet and I was damn 'kan cheong'! And they defended their gold with a 61-60 scoreline! Phew~! We beat the Thais at their home, where they even hired a Korean coach and called back some seniors just to beat us! And we just slapped them on their face! That was damn cool man!
My Pick for the Most Precious 'other medal': Ng Sock Khim
A first silver medal in table-tennis, from a surprise player. Surprise, surprise!
And finally, My Pick for the Cutiest Malaysian Sportsmen:
1. Cheng Chu Sian (Archery) -- Young, cute and furious... Hahahaha...
2. Yeoh Ken Nee (Diving)-- I think he is still very attractive whenever he dives.
3. Elvinn Keo (Squash)-- Seriously, never ever heard of him before he won the gold. But this young boy is CUTE!
Not to forget, Shakirin Ibrahim-- Just because he wasn't a gold medalist (well, he got a bronze), I almost forgot to mention him. He is still, so far, the best-looking Malaysian athlete I've ever met!
Alright, that's it. And.... MALAYSIA BOLEH!!!
So to those still in Perth, it's such a great news! Now you can travel to Mandurah easily and the frequency of the train is every 15 minutes, which is duh, better than any trains here in KL!
So do check the site out to find out the details!

老实说，Sea Games期间真的是我开始在N报工作那么久最开心的一段日子。不必想要写什么新闻，又不会被骂。虽然有时要很夜才回家，可是回家时老板竟然会跟你说谢谢，又可以claim OT，我乐在其中呢！可惜快乐的时光总是过得特别快，还有两天一切都要恢复正常了。唉......
当然，同时间我是在跟着Sea Games的进展的，今天我们好像很不错哦！不过刚才看过跳水赛，真的为每一位参赛者捏了把冷汗！有好几次看到Ken Nee都好像有几次差一点弄到跳板，看到我整个身体都缩了起来！还好他和Rosh都有惊无险的过关了！可是其他的可没那么幸运哦，一个泰国的选手和一个菲律宾选手脚都碰到跳板，菲律宾的那个还蛮严重的，我看到整个喊了出来！哇塞，真的有点恐怖耶！之前读新闻就有说到Ken Nee他们投诉过那边的跳板太旧了，不符合标准。刚才看的时候还听到那个跳板的声音超大声的！真的希望Ken Nee和Rosh要小心哦！不想看到你们受伤！
Anywayz, 还是恭喜Ken Nee保持着他的水准，赢得了金牌，Rosh也很不错哦，才输一点点而已。而且Ken Nee帅气依然哦!很帅、很帅！拍手！
By the way,我现在穿着Jodi从澳洲邮寄过来的底裤哦！，好可爱的哦！真谢谢她！越来越想念她了，不知道她现在在印度实习如何了？有没有如愿看到她最爱的大象呢？嘻嘻！Jodi邮寄来的可爱底裤和一大堆的可爱明信片！
P/S：He had qualified for the Olympic next year and had just won both the individual and team gold medal in the recurve event at the on-going Sea Games!

本来就plan好了今天要去Pyramid走走的，所以就撑着伞出去了。到了那边才忘了两件很重要的东西。1）本人近来很穷。2）本人最讨厌window shopping了！对啦，我不会很穷，只是很缺钱啰，显......老妹的“夸张贵”的assignment需要我资助（我的妈呀，各位家长，如果没钱请别“乱乱”让你的孩子念设计啊）、刚搬家又花了一笔、每个月还要付电脑的分期付款单......还想说下个月开始可以帮老妹还她的屋租，减轻一下老爸的负担、还想说很快就可以买新手机了.......这样看来，全都免谈了。没办法，就window shopping了一下，看到衣服、鞋子的我都离三尺，看到杂志的也离二尺！然后还是要花钱买一些新房间的东西，还好不会太贵。结果连晚餐也吃KFC（在Pyramid，最便宜的就是快餐），很希望屋主能快点买煤气，让我能在家里煮，省很多耶！

Here's the third set of the final where Mew Choo was behind all the way until 17-16. It was a great comeback for her to finally win the match! I mean, no doubt the Chinese players are a class above many other countries, but I hate them just because they are being so arrogant (no thanks to Mr Li Yong Bo)! Once in a while, we really do need to give them a lesson like this!
And don't you think Mew Choo is so cute when she won the match? She just looks like a little girl!

"Sport journalist? That sounds really cool, I wish I can write like you."
"Wah you only start working at 3pm? That's freaking cool!"
True, minus all the morning assignments, I will only need to be in the office at 3pm or later. True, sport journalist sounds pretty cool, not because of the writing, to me it's more to the opportunity to meet with some world class athletes. I'm always thrilled at getting the chance to meet some of my idols!
Okay, I'm pretty cool with my working hours actually. I mean, where would you get another job that would allow you to go to the gym at 9am in the morning? And if you have enough time, you can even go for a movie before heading to work! And having off days on weekdays is also cool with me because you wouldn't need to pack into the crowd during weekend(of course, I mean except for the bloody school holiday!!!Arrrrhhhh...).
But I'm also finding it difficult to do stuffs that I want to do, namely...
1) To attend Caroline's wedding
It's on this Sunday and I'm dying to go because over there I will meet some of my ex-colleagues whom I've worked with at the Penang Food Restaurant in Perth. I'd sent my off day request for this Sunday but I'm still in doubt whether or not I'll get the approval... My boss just came in today to do the roster. Finger crossed, finger crossed...
2) Join my classmates in organizing our graduation
Well, I finished my hosting course last month and the graduation is scheduled next January (although sadly, I haven't even record my graduation piece because of the hospital stay). The school had decided to let us (student) do the job of arranging the whole event which is going to be held at the PWTC. Apparently, only students from the hosting class are all excited about doing the job. Jin Jing had even came out with a script for a play! And Karen is involved in the committee although she has to travel all the way from Ipoh! They are currently working on the stuffs and are having meetings every Saturday afternoon which, duh? I can't join!!!
Seriously, it is going to be an exciting event. The graduation is part of the youth exhibition at the PWTC. It will be HUGE! And you know I always think I'm a creative person :p (okay, I might not be for this few years but back then in secondary school, I always have good ideas when organizing events like that). There is NO REASON for me to miss it but my working hour! Everybody is off on Saturday and I understand the fact that they want to have it in the afternoon because nobody likes to wake up early in the morning on an off day! So yea... this is what you call 有心无力. Well, I'm still waiting for the e-mail of the information from them, we'll see what I can do....
3) Have dinner at the right time
I finished work every night at around 9pm, sometimes later if there is a need for me to wait for some results to come in. If it's 9pm, I will reach home around 10pm or so, which is definitely not a right time to have dinner. I can have dinner here at the right time but unfortunately, there will be only mamak food downstairs, which you can't really rely on everyday. Of course sometimes I will bring bread for dinner but you know I will still crave for something oily because my mind is telling me I only had a light dinner. Having dinner so late is probably the reason I didn't really lsoe weight despite all the gym sessions that I've fallen in love with!
So, does the job still sound very cool to you?

Okay, I know it is a month early to make a new year resolution. But since I hope this will come true by the next month, which is January 2008, I better announce it here with the hope that you guys will be able to help.
I've decided that, if possible, I want to pay for my sister's rent, which is RM 420 from January on. We've just shifted and there is a huge rise of our rent from the previous 200 bucks. Now we are in seperate rooms, which means I am also paying 42o bucks for my own room.
But the 420 will be another burden for my dad. He is already paying too much from my studies to my sis's. And he has to keep his dream of owning a new car until my sis graduate next August(well, that's what he said). I always mumble non-stop about him buying a new car because our old one is bloody 16 year-old and is making so much noises and my dad has to ride on his bike all the time as my mum is always driving the car. I am constantly worry about the fact that he is riding on the bike! Almost everyday I'm worry that something would happen! Touchwood! But it is true, I don't feel safe with motorbikes!
So... I'm begging to you all, not for money lar! But a part-time job. Of course it will not be that easy as I have a permanent job at the moment. But just try me. Anything that I can do at home, scriptwriting, writing press releases, freelance writing, etc. If you dare take the risk, you can even try me on doing voice-overs or emcee-ing. I'm new in these but you can give me a try! I can do it in English or Mandarin. Anything that can offer me at least an extra RM 420 per month will do! Thanks a lot in advanced!
As I've said above, I've shifted. But it's still the same area. The house is a bit not so well done yet after the renovation. My toilet's light is still not working, so I can't even use it at night time. The air-con in my room can't work. I mean, it can be turned on, but you can't change the tempreture at all! But the room is okay, with a big wardrobe which I can now put all my huge piles of clothes in it! Yoo~hoo~!
But the biggest problem right now is the wireless line that I'm using isn't stable. So I can't really go on-line, fuck! You know I can't live without internet!!!
Okay, I hope everything will be fixed soon lar!
So if you are coming to pick me up to somewhere, be aware that I've moved.
