Is this Iraq?

I lay down to sleep, but i can't. The night is dark and quiet. A long pause of silence and again interrupted with a sound or a bang. I can't take this much longer. It has been 3 days in a row, day or night there are explosions, sometimes in a continous fashion and sometimes really rapidly like the that of an MP5.

I hope this doesn't last long. It goes to show that despite the legislation and the security forces, we are all here to suffer. At this very moment as the end draws near (hopefully), there are still sounds of explosions, some just above my home and some in the distance.

This is Foong Hoh Yun reporting for GNN, on Deepavali in Malaysia.

Thought of the moment:
"Don't people ever get bored of burning away their money?"

mandy oh mandy where have you been,
i always wait for you online,
but you're never seen,
so i'll wait till i see u go blink blink
then i'll be happy to ask how you've been
randalsage (3:34 AM) :
hey steph..

the world is moves and it's never static
it's filled with chaos and very erratic
so let's not panic and be frantic
so let's pack up a smile as wide as a mile,
and say "hey it's not that hectic"

A vision (or hallucination?)

so fair and true,
finally i realized,
i was dreaming of you...

Good Nite and sweet dreams

In the face baby!!

Uni has started. Last saturday in a grading in Seapark. Got my face beaten up my Choon Ling and Garry. I've got a bruised/ bleeding lips as well as loosing a tooth. I just could carry on in the final match. Well went for a quick breakfast and rushed to the dentist.

Learnt a few things

1. I am not invincible.
Although i have the advantage of size, that doesn't mean my competitor can't be a cili padi (a whole bunch of whoop ass in a small package)

2. Be careful of the other competitor as well as my self
Karate sparring is just a sport, although it is suppose ot simulate realities of actual combat, it is point based scoring, not the number of teeth you can knock out of your opponent. Trust me after the amount of damage and blood that day, it looked like UFC(ultimate fighting championship), full contact fighting. Be aware that you're inflicting damage on another human being.

3. Use a mouth piece
Better to be uncomfortable for a moment than to suffer the loss of teeth.

4. Use a good pair of gloves for my sake as well as my competitors
Bare knuckle contact is extremely painful. Take precautions to save your knuckles from being broken and to save the opponent from damage.

5. It is just a game
It is just a game, what happens in the game is in the game. No matter what happens, don't hold grudges, and learn from mistakes (better to loose teeth in the ring rather than in real life)

Thought of the moment:
"I can't feel my tooth and my lips hurt"

Where have all the parking gone? And where the hell do all the cars come from?

i got pissed with parking in hartamas, so i went against traffic, drove up the side of a hill from the main road, and parked at the top of the mound facing all the other fucking cars.. now that was 4WD action...

On the lighter note, my girlfriend Marina is coming back tomorrow. At least there can still be a holiday :)

The Perils of Dating
Contributed by

First date: You get to kiss her goodnight.
Second date: You get to grope all over and make out.
Third date: You get to have sex in the missionary position. Then you promise to marry her but will probably abandon the idea.

First date: She's shy, so you don't get to kiss her at all.
Second date: She'll take a bath in front of you and let you smell her panties.
Third date: You get to have kinky sex with her. Then she'll bid you sayonara, as that was her last fling as getting married to a
Japanese man tomorrow.

First date: You get to touch that big breast of hers.
Second date: You get to home base with her.
Third date: You have to promise her that you are gonna get circumcised. Then you will marry her and find out that you have to support
her whole family.
The only consolation is that you get to repeat the procedure three more times as allowed under Islamic law!

First date: You get to buy her an expensive dinner but nothing happens.
Second date: You buy her an even more expensive dinner but nothing happens too.
Third date: You have already realised that nothing's going to happen.

First date: You meet her parents.
Second date: The date is set for the wedding.
Third date: It's your wedding night!

First date: you lose all your cash in your wallet
Second date: you max out all your credit cards
Third date: you clean out your bank account and you still can't get to first base. (3 weeks after your third date, you die from SARS)

(I've heard of all of these, but the last one was a surprise)

The end is near (again)

Mind is racing, can't get sound sleep, can't concentrate when studying... yes it's exam time... and this period which is usually my "crunch time" has been very relaxed. And i don't know why i suddenly have pimples, could it be the exams or the heat wave that we're getting in Malaysia? Anyway all the best to Clayton and Sunway students.

"time to stop surfin' and start studying :) "

Understanding Engineers
submitted by Jack Low (

For those who are or for those who work with engineers.....

Understanding Engineers - Take One

Two engineering students were walking across the campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?"

The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday minding my own business when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike. She threw the bike to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want." The second engineer nodded approvingly, "Good choice; the clothes probably wouldn't have fit."

Understanding Engineers - Take Two

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Understanding Engineers - Take Three

A priest, a doctor and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers.

The engineer fumed, "What's with these people? We've been waiting for 15 minutes!" The doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such ineptitude!"

The priest said, "Hey, here comes the green keeper. Let's have a word with him."

"Hi George, what's the matter that group ahead of us? They're rather slow, aren't they?" The green keeper replied, "Oh, yes, that's a group of blind fire-fighters. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime."

The group was silent for a moment. Then the priest said, "That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight." The doctor said, "Good idea. And I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist friend and see if there is anything he can do for them."

The engineer said, "Why can't they play at night?"

Understanding Engineers - Take Four (my personal favorite!)

A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The woman below replied, "You are in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

"You must be an engineer," said the balloonist. "I am," replied the woman, "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is, technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I am still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help so far."

The woman below responded, "You must be in Management." "I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well," said the woman, "you don't know where you are or where you are going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise, which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems.

The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it's my fault."

Understanding Engineers - Take Five

What is the difference between Mechanical Engineers and Civil Engineers? Mechanical Engineers build weapons. Civil Engineers build targets.

Understanding Engineers - Take Six

Normal people ... believe that if it isn't broken, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it isn't broken, it doesn't have enough features yet.

Understanding Engineers - Take Seven

An architect, an artist and an engineer were discussing whether it was better to spend time with the wife or a mistress. The architect said he enjoyed time with his wife, building a solid foundation for an enduring relationship.

The artist said he enjoyed time with his mistress, because of the passion and mystery he found there.

The engineer said, "I like both." "Both?" Replied the architect and artist.

"Yeah. If you have a wife and a mistress, they will each assume you are spending time with the other woman, and you can go to the lab and get some work done."

Understanding Engineers - Take Eight

One day, an engineer was crossing a road when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess".

He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week."

The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket. The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you and do ANYTHING you want."

Again the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket. Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess, I'll stay with you for a week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"

The engineer said, "Look. I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool."

Words of encouragement for myself

randalsage (10:36 PM) :
my dear... time is somethign we all don't have... you have to realise, if someone dies, they're gone, you can mourn for years if you want, but i choose to mourn for a day and move on... same thing for people, missed chances and oppertunities...

randalsage (10:37 PM) :
i've gone through enough mistakes to realise that we all fall, it's just how fast we get up and keep on running that counts...


For a lot of you, that weren't with me in Australia, this was an affectionate name given to me by my close friends who are still there. This is also equivalent to 'extreme' and 'hardworking'. Example: JEEEEEEETSSS!!!! (Commonly heard from Julian and Jason whenever i do something really crazy, or just greetting me). By Heng yu: I'm gonna start jeetzing (start doing hardcore work). Siong JEEEETS (whoa, cool). Alas those j3375 days are gone. Oh i think i have to thank Tirath for coming up with the word and popularization to Jason and Julian. Somehow it became my nick, i wonder why? :) hehehehheh

Anyway for those who are on the verge of crumbling under pressure of exam stress (like me), remember, the end is near (one way or another).

Oh thanks to Wei Ann i actually found out today that there's an assignment due tomorrow and to Siong for passing me a sample answer. At least i'm not writing blind. I'm not gonna copy his work if that's what you bozzo's out there are thinking.

Thought of the moment:
"It's gonna be a loooooong night :)"

A Minor Operation(Ouch!!!)

oh what a marvelous thing to finally arrive home,
my butt's been ripped and stitched,
and stuffed up like a puff fish.

so here i am with a burning hole,
a literal pain in the ass,
and this is no joke,

so i may take small steps and walk funny,
but i'm tolerant, so if you make a joke,
i'll try not to punch you in the belly.

The Uni has COME

Time to drop the crap,

"I don't know whether to be happy or be sad that uni has started, like always i think i'll start regretting that i missed uni in a months time"
Sean Connery and Kylie Minouge

Sean Connery was interviewed by Michael Parkinson, and bragged that despite his 72 years of age, he could still have sex three times a night. Kylie Minogue, who was also a guest, looked intrigued. After the show, Kylie said, "Sean, if I am not being too forward, I'd love to have sex with an older man. Let's go back to my place."

So they go back to her place and have great sex. Afterwards, Sean says, "If you think that was good, let me sleep for half an hour, and we can have even better sex. But while I'm sleeping, hold my balls in your left hand and my dick in your right hand."

Kylie looks a bit perplexed, but says, "Okay." He sleeps for half an hour, awakens, and they have even better sex.

Then Sean says, "Kylie that was wonderful. But if you let me sleep for an hour, we can have the best sex yet. But again, hold my balls in your
left hand, and my dick in your right hand."

Kylie is now used to the routine and complies. The results are mind blowing.

Once it's all over, and the cigarettes are lit, Kylie asks "Sean, tell me, does my holding your balls in my left hand and your dick in my right stimulate you while you're sleeping?"

Sean replies, "No, but the last time I slept with a slut from Melbourne, she stole my wallet."

An Eternity of suffering

I understand that i have dissapointed alot of people. Everytime a person asks me when i'll be going back to Melbourne, I have the repeat the same lines over and over again, until i feel like buying a recorder and carrying it with me to save my energy in explaining it. I understand that my parents fear that i can't make it. They too often have seen people going through the same path as have and it hurts them to think that i too may be one of those people who don't succeed.

Life right now for me is a living hell. University has helped me see my true capabilities, and yet somehow, recently i've been lacking. Like how it took a car collision to turn my materials engineering from a definite fail to a high distinction. But then when i look back at the projects that really meant the most to me, these are the ones that required the most amount of effort, sweat, hairloss and loss of sleep. I suppose i should stop waiting for the lightning to strike me.

I was just watching some anime when i had a call from australia. It was Julian, Colin, Wan Sze and Felicity. They again reminded me to work hard, so that my reward would be among their presence like how we used to be when i was there for the whole of 2002. Although i am hopeful that i'll return, i also have to think practically and realistically. I will perform my best here, and i will complete my course. My friends, it seems that this is my living hell that i have to go through, and i'm sure that this period in my life would surely have an impact on my life on a whole.

So guys, what goes around comes around. I got what i deserve, I'll cherish the times that we had, and i'll regret forever the great times that i'll miss not being there right now. Till we meet again ECSE classmates and friends in OZland.

Colin, I really do wanna cry now man. Sob.

Thought of the moment:
"I feel like shit"

byte ;-) (3:58 PM) :
sigh. we want you back man!
randalsage (12:11 AM) :
i want to be back man... let's just say that i have to accept this as my punishment... well i'll always remember the walk around melbourne at 3 in the morn... ciaos... keep intouch man... i'll see you guys sometime in the future...

Somehow my lack of performance in my studies would always haunt me till i graduate. I suppose this is the punishment that deserve. So long and farewell to all my classmates over in Australia.

Thought of the moment:
" When am i going to get my car back? I'm so darn bored"

My day in a nutshell

Watched charmed season 1 till i got bored. Then went over to my friends place to have lunch and hang about. Then stayed to see a few episodes of Chobits burnt a few CDs and then came home. Fell asleep till evening and woke up to jog for 1/2 an hour. Had dinner and saw CSI on AXN and then tinkering with my computer till now.

Thought of the moment:
"BORED, when am i getting my car back? when is uni going to start?"

Car is gone!!!

I have until March 3rd before my class starts. But i feel as though my wings have been clipped. My car has been sent for respraying and it wouold take 10 days to get it done. Sigh, there's only that much that i can endure staying in the house.

On another note, managed to chat with 2 of my tuition mates from 5 years ago. Looking forward to meeting them.

Serious incident in Korea, i hope my friend Kim is ok.

Thought of the moment:
"Sleepy, gotta disconn and ZZZZzzzzzzzz......"

The time to panic once again

Somehow i'd rather be beaten up by a buch of girls than to prepare for an exam. Yes i took a summer course in Introduction to E-Commerce. I did enjoy the course and the coursework but the exams, eh you get my drift.

Well wish me luck :)

Though of the moment:
"I am hungry, i need something savoury"

Happy Chinese New Year

Once again this joyous occasion comes about. This is the occasion where you get to meet up with your relatives and friends. Besides the red packets that would be distributed, there would also be the food.

I can't wait, there's just so much to describe but i'll let the pictures which i hope to put up illustrate it for you.

So to all my visitors, Gong Hei Fat Choy (erm i think it means have a prosperous year)

Thought of the moment:
" I hope i don't lose that much from gambling this time around "

Thought of the moment:
"Work work work work, get to work you clutz"

Yes, i have been readmitted in to monash uni, on condition that i transfer back to Malaysia. That's actually quite acceptable. So now i'll consider applying for Streamyx as well as closing some of the accounts that i have in Australia. Sigh, and i blame it all on myself. So a new year and a new start.

Thought of the moment:
"i better not screw up this time"
