5 Ways To Spend Your PTPTN Loan

1. Plan a field trip for you and your course mates, with you bearing all the charges. The destination: National Zoo. They got giraffes there and I’m sure you guys will have the time of your life visiting the giraffes. Giraffes are the best. They’re tall.
Fun Factor: Stand beside the giraffe and ask your course mates to take your picture. Then, send the pictures taken to me. I’m gonna put it in my blog. It gonna be fun.

2. Plan a birthday party; it doesn’t have to be your birthday or anybody’s birthday. At McD’s counter, pick few peoples randomly while they are queuing. Ask them to join your birthday party. Some of them wouldn’t get along with your request, never mind, just get hold the next person in line. When they are all there and ready, start ordering your food. Make sure that you only order food for you and you only. For the fun of it, make it happy meal. They come with toy.
Fear factor: Beware of the clowns. They are scary.

3. Pretending that you are Mr. Tom Hanks in the movie ‘The Terminal’. Try to re-live that experience. Go to KLIA, they got Burger Kings in level 3 (that’s where you going to spend some of your money). Pretending that you don’t have the money and the only way you can only eat at the Burger King’s by pushing a certain amount of trolleys.
Fun factor: I’m sure there are a lot of trolleys outside the airport, but you can’t go out from the airport, remember? So start imagining that there’s a guard guiding all the exit doors. So, for this exercise you can only push the trolleys inside the airport.

4. Buy the giraffe. The small one will do. Cute little giraffe is cute and fun to be with. To capture the moments perfectly, hire professional photographer.
Fun factor: See point number 1.

5. Call all the media and Jeff Ooi, you are going to make Malaysia longest popiya (one of Malaysian famous delicacy).
Fun factor: This is the most expensive activity so far. This way you can finish up the money faster than you ever thought.

Take care dude. But before that don't forget that ten percents of the money is mine. Consultation fee. Have fun with the giraffe though.

This going to be fun

Somebody actually googled this and been directed to my blog. Poor thing. But, don't you worry dude, I'm honoured and would love to teach you on how to spend your money.

It's going to be fun. Promise.

Yesterday, while you are working*.

Wifey: Is 80 km/h in bike and 80 km/h in car covers the same distance?
Me: That’s why I love you dear.

Sorry dear, I can’t help myself from rolling-while-laughing-hysterically on the bed right after that statement. I just can’t.

Okay, okay. I can but I won’t.

*It’s proven that Selangor do have more leaves compared to other states.

Yesterday afternoon I received one notebook from the vendor (Which I find it’s unnecessary to mentioned their name). There’s a picture of Tiger Wood swinging his club while gritting his teeth on the front page of that book. Nice, but what interests me more is their catchy tag line.

There comes a time when execution is more important than theory.

Go on. Be a Tiger.

Very nice, but I don’t want to be a tiger. I want to be a lion.

Can I be a Lion instead?

Thanks to TNB for a very dark* start of 2005.

What a way to start a year.

*Another infamous National blackout?
Yesterday, after scanning my baby.

Doc: Your baby is healthy. Since this is your second time (We lost one last September), be extra careful will you?
Wifey: Sure doc, I will. When I’m supposed to due Doc?
Doc: This July. July the 13th to be exact. Is there anything else?
Wifey: There's one thing that concerned me though, sometimes, I do hear winds blowing on my right ears.
Doc: Are you sure what you heard is winds blowing instead of peoples talking? If the latter happens to be the case, I need to send you to different kind of doctor.
Wifey: Hehe. You’re funny doc.

Alhamdullillah. God willing, I’m gonna be a father in 6 months time. For me, nothing can beat what I feel right now.

For Chris, the first thing he did when stepping into any cars is reaching for its seat belt's.

“Damn, there’s no seat belts at the back.”
“I took it off," Ms R* answered.
“Did you know that there’s a purpose for every invention, it (seat belts at the back seats) will save the front passengers life when accidents occur.”
“Yeah right.”

In the Giant’s parking lot, she starts to overtake cars.

Now I’m concerned.

Overtaking cars in parking lot is not a very nice thing to do. You gonna get killed driving like that in Sydney.

*Ms R is my colleague.

Explorace All Stars being screened last night. They partnered the TV personalities with corporate figures. So, we got Harith Iskandar being coupled up with someone from Goodyear, Umi Aida with one TV3 guy and Selina (3R) with Capt. Nik from MAS.

Me: In five years, give me another five years dear and I’m gonna represent MAS for this All Stars thing.
Wifey: Mmmph. (Concentrating on the show instead)
Me: I wonder who will partner me then. Misha Omar will be nice. (It will be great actually)
Wifey: What are you saying?
Me: I said that I would like to participate in this game, partnering Misha Omar in five years time. (Now I got her full attention. Hehe)
Wifey: Emmm, okay.
Me: Okay??? That’s it. Aren’t you jealous dear?
Wifey: Nop. Why should I? I’m gonna run side by side with you guys if that thing become materialized.
Me: Team of three. That’s impossible.
Wifey: Nothing’s impossible dear. Now, watch the show.

The outcome of that show, a very very sad day for Mr. Harith.
Chris came back from his holiday yesterday.

The first thing he did this morning is to tease Michelle by playing The Beatles song. And now we all knew the lyrics by heart.

“Michelle, ma belle.
These are words that go together well,
My Michelle.”

Next thing on our list is to invent a dance move that can go together with the song.

Poor Michelle.

Ms. R and Mr. L*,

Please think deep (deeper!!) before asking me any question. Answering stupid questions do pissed me off. I hate doing that. Really. I’m quite angry and about to turn green anytime soon. Have you ever heard of the great green monster** from Marvel Comic Book? I can become one. Minus the color, the size and the strength. And one more thing, asking the same question over and over again is not fun.

Eating's fun. Playing football's fun. Hang out at Mamak’s fun (Oh wait, I've covered that in "Eating is fun"). Same question over and over again, not fun.

Thank you very much. I had the time of my life.


*My colleagues and ironically they are both from the same U.

Judging by the way we played last weekend, it amazed me that we only conceded 4 goals in second half (alone!)* of the game. Guys, for ‘Malaysia Boleh’ sake, you should let them score more. And then, maybe, maybe you all can be included in our Guinness book of record.

*Malaysia lost to Indonesia 4 goals to 1 in Bukit Jalil (Tiger Cup semi-final)

Things I learned on New Year’s Eve.

1. There’s no real celebration this year (Even if there’s any, I feel it's very wrong for me to celebrate new years with the current event going on). Thinking that people will stay at home due to that cancellation, I’m off to TESCO buying present for my one-year-old nephew. Wrong move. TESCO was jam-packed with people that night; make it difficult for me roaming for present.
2. Buying more than 10 items* doesn’t help either. Another half an hour’s gone queuing. Yay. Go me.
3. Winnie The Pooh and Disney’s Mickey Mouse (plus other unpopular brands) have something in common when producing Mini Baby Pool. They put this kind of scenario (on their boxes)– baby in the pool, accompanied by ‘hey-look-I-didn’t-look-like-a-mother-at-all-but-heck-who-would-mind-when-I-got-these-36D-things-on-me-currently’ posing in the background. The ‘mother’ took more space than the poor baby and pool combined.

Anyway, my new year’s resolution is to spend more time with my family and friends. To appreciate them more and to be the very best friend my wife had ever have. I believe, nothing is more devastating than losing our loved ones.

Happy 2005 from my foxy lady and me! Take care guys.

* There’s a special queues for people buying less than 10 items.
