Boring...Boring...Boring...

This is already the second week of my 2-month-semester-break and yet I had not the slightest idea of what I’m going to do with the rest of the holiday.

Looks like this is going to be another boringboringboring… holiday.

For the past two weeks I’d been trying to apply for every temporary/contract vacancy that appeared on the Jobstreet and I had yet to receive any answer. If there is going to be one. *sigh*

The first week however, had been spent on playing some free time-limited-trial arcade games which I downloaded from Yahoo. Well spent indeed! Ha!

Then the past four days (if not mistaken), was spent on reading The da Vinci Code, which I had bought last year. Yeah, it had been lying comfortably in my bookshelf since last year. I had barely went through half of the book when school re-opened. What frustrated me most is that when I tried to pick up the book again I realized that I can hardly recall what I’d read in the first 300 pages. And to continue seemed not a good idea. So I had to start again from the beginning. Eager to finish it before the movie premier on Thursday, so I spent four whole days on the book. If not for that reason, no doubt the book is going to spend another year in the shelves. For a slow-reader like me, reading a near 600-pages book can be considered rare. For the record, somehow I managed to do it. *Cheers*

For the rest of the holiday, perhaps I should do the same with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and also Dan Brown’s Deception Point, another 600+600..

Things I haven't figure out


Why people shake hands when they meet new friends? Obviously I'm not the only one wondering about this, if you happened to watch The Chronicles of Narnia. Lol...

I don’t even know what the hell is E=mc2, even though I studied two years of Physics.

I don't know and wouldn't bother to figure out what exactly are these, "XML", "RSS feed", "Atom".

Why do they call earwax earwax? As if you could make a candle out of earwax?

Why is the Earth round anyway?

Dear FutureMe

Came across this site from someone's blog. It's a site for you to write and send an e-mail to yourself in the future. So here goes;

Dear FutureMe in 2020,
You wrote an e-mail to yourself on Christmas Eve, 2005 from futureme.org. Go check up this site for yourself (if it still exist when you read this) if you think this is a prank.

You probably don't even have the slightest idea why are you writing this when you did. And you probably have nothing better to do. Muahahahah.

For your information, RM1 is equals to US$3.80 when you wrote this. (edit: RM1=USD3.7x)

You were 21 when you wrote this. That means you would be 36 when you read this stupid e-mail.

In case you don't remember, you were damn addicted to World of Warcraft, but you never won a campaign without appying cheat codes. *shame*

You used to hate cucumbers. And you have "insect phobia". Hope you manage to overcome it by now, because your dad may not be there to kill a cockroach for you if you meet one.

You really SHOULD have your own car by now.

(written on Saturday Dec 24 2005, to be delivered on Dec 31 2020)

 

Obviously I can't tell the difference

Read about this site from someone's blog when I was blog-hopping earlier this afternoon. Gave it a try, and, ta..da.. here's the result.


I scored 6/18. Lol...
The Chinese, Japanese and Korean. They looked all the same to me. Ho!ho! *wink*

Result's out



And so my 1st sem result was released yesterday. So am i happy about it? Yes and no. Yes, because i never expect to get above C+ for that accounting paper.

No because i'd expected better grades for the other 3 papers. It's not that i'm over ambitious or what. It's just that sometimes you thought you did well in the exam but then it turned out to be the other way round. You know, as soon as you walked out of that exam hall, you said to yourself, "That wasn't too bad, i guess i can at least get an A-" but then you only got a B.

So, yeah, i'm a bit disappointed. I know a lot of people would say something like,"Doesn't matter as long as you passed", "Don't be too greedy" and stuff. But i can't help it. I just feel that way and I thought that maybe i shouldn't be too satisfied with simply a B or B-. Afterall, I passed. But so does EVERYONE else. And in my school, NO ONE got below C for those papers. So, i guess i was hoping to be above average. Lol..!!

 

Why I HATE direct sales

1. First you'll find your friend(especially long-lost ones), suddenly ask you out and somemore offer you a ride. Next you'll find yourself sitting in some hawkers centre listening to your friend's "preaching" about the superiority of some health products which can cure, well, basically every disease, while at the same time showing you dozens of photos as "proof".

2. When you asked him/her why some cancer patients who use their products (aside from those in the photos) couldn’t recover, you’ll get this, “because they aren’t taking enough”.


3. When you ask him/her how much is enough, Ha!! You’ll get this, “Take the WHOLE bottle (500 tablets) a day!!!” But when you blinked in disbelief, you’ll be lectured that, “Sometimes people just can’t accept the way things work. HEALTH is put in front of them. It’s just a matter of choice”.


4. You cannot excuse yourself to leave earlier because he/she offered you the ride there. So you won't have the transport to get the hell out of there. And you can't say you're busy or need to go somewhere else, because you'd already told him/her on the phone that you are free when he/she ask you to come out.


5. When you ask how come those products so expensive, you'll get this, "One small tablet of our ******** (product) has 32 times the elements of normal vitamin you get from the market, and is equals to18 green apples!!!"


6. Then you’ll be asked to attend some kinda health seminar organized by their direct sales company which costs hundreds of ringgit. When you told him/her that its too expensive, he/she will insist that it's worth spending those money for the sake of your health and your family's health.


7. When you told him/her that you're unable to attend, then you'll be lectured that "nothing comes before your own health".


8. When you still insist that you need to seriously consider about it, he/she will reply, "OK but I know you won't disappoint me". Then he/she will pull out some kinda membership application form and say, "Here's something you DON'T have to consider. By being a member of *****, you'll be elligible to....blah...bla..bla..."


9. BEFORE you manage to stop him/her, you'll find him/her starting to fill up the form for you, WITHOUT your consent. When you told him/her that you don't have the money to pay for the membership fee, he/she will reply, " Since we're friend, this little money, i'll submit first. You can always pay me later."


10. He/she’ll promise that you WON’T regret after joining their big-happy-family which shares good things together.

11. You'll be reminded that at *****, they don't speak of selling-buying. Instead they use the term SHARING. Why? Because GOOD things are meant to be shared. Ha!!

12. After hours of "sharing", he/she will offer to pay for the RM1.50 ice-Milo that you ordered earlier.

In the end, your wallet will BLEED, for the sake of SHARING.

Sounds familiar?? Ha!
