1) Regular naps prevent old age, especially if you take them while driving
2) Having one child makes you a parent; having two makes you a referee
3) Marriage is a relationship where one person is always right and the other is the husband! (must have been spoken by the wife lol)
4) I believe we should all pay our tax with a smile. I tried - but they wanted cash :(
5) A child's greatest period of growth is the month after you have purchased new school uniforms
6) Don't feel bad. A lot of people have not talent too
7) Don't marry the person you want to live with, marry the one you cannot live without, but whatever you chose to do, you'll still regret it later
8) You can't buy love, but you can pay heavily for it
9) Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote (wait, I got to think about this one)
10) Laziness is nothing more than a habit of resting before you get tired
11) Marriage is give and take. You'd better give it to her or she'll take it anyway...
12) My wife and I always compromise. I admit I am wrong and she agrees with me
13) Those who can't laugh at themselves leave the job to others
14) Ladies first. Pretty ladies sooner
15) A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person
16) You are getting old when you enjoy remembering things more than doing them
17) It doesn't matter how often a married man changes his job, he still ends op with the same boss
18) Real friends are the ones who survives transitions between address books
19) Saving is the best thing. Especially when your parents have done it for you
20) Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools talk because they have to say something
21) They all our language the mother tongue because the father seldom gets to speak
22) Man: Is there any way for long life?
Dr: Get married
Man: Will it help?
Dr: No, but then the thougt of long live will never come
23) Why do couples hold hands during their wedding? It's a formality just like two boxers shaking hands before the fight begins!
24) Wife: Darling, today is our anniversary. What should we do?
Husband: Let us stand in silence for 2 minutes
25) It's funny when people discuss Love Marriage vs. Arranged. It's like asking someone, is suicide better or being murdered
26) There is only one perfect child in the world, and every mother has it (awwwww)
27) There is only one perfect wife in the world and every neighbor has it
A great Thursday everyone :)

I used to be on Twitter also during my more active blogging days but since I am quite a "wind bag" - loves to talk and talk (and that is according to my ex Boss Rudi, or at least the impression that I got from him), blogging has always been my preferred choice of communicating. But these days, as I hardly have that much leisure time, I have turned to Twittering. It is actually not bad. Now that I have subscribed to the unlimited data access line, all I really need to do is to make sure that my mobile is fully charged all the time, and I can Twitter anywhere, whilst stuck in a traffic jam (opps, this is a no-no, so, please do as I say and not do as I do), sneaking in 5 minutes of office time whilst waiting for office meetings to start, during breakfast, lunch or dinner (especially when I am dining alone). I must really thank Twitter for saving my sanity. Surfing and getting online is really an addiction and I have to really accept this as a fact. Half a day without it and the withdrawal symptoms will start to kick in.
So, those of you who liked my blog (previously when it had more posts) and still like my blog, I am now on Twitter and I go by the name "Yozoranitesky" - (now why does that not surprise me - this is Patrick Ku's thought bubble - haha)
Alrighty then, I will see you all on Twitter then? Cheers and have a great weekend - I am sure I will.
Oh, by the way, those cutie little pups, they have all gone to great homes, Paddy, Benjamin, Eleanor, Magic and Cupcake. Hey, but that is only 5 of them... well the 6th one, MJ, he is with me now :). Hope to have a doggie meetup very soon. Any one of the doggie pals out that have any suggestion? Chester? Snoopy? Axel? Jake?Rusty?

Since the post went out, 2 have been sold and based on first come first serve, there will be 3 more left to go.
These are some of the photos taken today. There are like little toys :)
A girlfriend who viewed these photos told me that the puppies are not very nice. I truly believe that it is my non-existent photography skill that is doing injustice to these cuties. Two friends who have seen them all today (Douglas and Patrick) might be able to give you their unbiased opinion on them :). If you are reading this blog, please comment guys. Thanks.
Saturday, July 18, 2009
One has been grabbed already and only a few left.
If there are anybody interested, please contact me. There is a commission also for those who are able to recommend a successful buyer for these puppies. Please sms this number for more info : 012 727 8337
Meanwhile, have a look at them cuties :)

Mary and her husband Jim had a dog named 'Lucky..'
Lucky was a real character. Whenever Mary and Jim had company come for a weekend visit they would warn their friends to not leave their luggage open because Lucky would help himself to whatever struck his fancy. Inevitably, someone would forget and something would come up missing.
Mary or Jim would go to Lucky's toy box in the basement and there the treasure would be, amid all of Lucky's other favorite toys Lucky always stashed his finds in his toy box and he was very particular that his toys stay in the box.
It happened that Mary found out she had breast cancer. Something told her she was going to die of this disease....in fact; she was just sure it was fatal.
She scheduled the double mastectomy, fear riding her shoulders.
The night before she was to go to the hospital she cuddled with Lucky. A thought struck her...what would happen to Lucky? Although the three-year-old dog liked Jim, he was Mary's dog through and through. If I die, Lucky will be abandoned, Mary thought. He won't understand that I didn't want to leave him!
The thought made her sadder than thinking of her own death.
The double mastectomy was harder on Mary than her doctors had anticipated and Mary was hospitalized for over two weeks. Jim took Lucky for his evening walk faithfully, but the little dog just drooped, whining and miserable.
Finally the day came for Mary to leave the hospital. When she arrived home, Mary was so exhausted she couldn't even make it up the steps to her bedroom.
Jim made his wife comfortable on the couch and left her to nap. Lucky stood watching Mary but he didn't come to her when she called.
It made Mary sad but sleep soon overcame her and she dozed.
When Mary woke for a second she couldn't understand what was wrong. She couldn't move her head and her body felt heavy and hot. But panic soon gave way to laughter when Mary realized the problem. She was covered, literally blanketed, with every treasure Lucky owned! While she had slept, the sorrowing dog had made trip after trip to the basement bringing his beloved mistress all his favorite things in life.
He had covered her with his love.
Mary forgot about dying.
Instead she and Lucky began living again, walking further and further together every day. It's been 12 years now and Mary is still cancer-free. Lucky He still steals treasures and stashes them in his toy box but Mary remains his greatest treasure.
Remember....live every day to the fullest. Each minute is a blessing from God. And never forget....the people who make a difference in our lives are not the ones with the most Credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care for us.
If you see someone without a smile today give them one of yours! Live simply. Love seriously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God

"How bad is "Hung Cheng" out there?" (Hung Cheng is Cantonese translated to mean financial situation)
A friend asked, "Why weren't you successful with the Arabs?"
The salesman explained "When I got posted to the Middle East, I was very confident that I would make a good sales pitch as cola is virtually an unknown drink there. But the problem is, I don't speak Arabic. So, I planned to convey the message through 3 posters..."
"1st poster - A man lying on the hot desert, totally exhausted
2nd poster - The man drinking our Cola
3rd poster - Our man now totally rejuvenated.
And I had the posted pasted all over the place".
The friend said, "That should have worked very well".
The salesman said "I didn't realize that Arabs read from right to left" :(

As I was surfing for the movies a-coming into our local cinemas, I stumbled upon "Watchmen". The Trailer sure looks interesting enough. The movie is based on yet another comic book, with plenty of superheroes. The setting of the movie is in 1985, during Nixon's still president of the US. The crux of the story is about plot to discredit and murder the various superheroes that exist during the story's setting in an alternate 1985.
The plot summary put up at IMDB read....
"Watchmen" is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the "Doomsday Clock" - which charts the USA's tension with the Soviet Union - is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion - a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers - Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity... but who is watching the Watchmen?"

You can watch the Trailer at the official website of the Watchmen there or below and watch it below to see if it is interesting enough for you :). It is coming to our local theaters from next Thursday onwards I reckon.
I went to read more about the movie at Wikipedia and the more I read, the more interesting the movie looked. There are plenty of characters in the plot with vigilantes and villains abound to satisfy all personal preferences. The superheroes vigilantes include
- Rorschach - Walter Joseph Kovacs, the superhero with the trench coat, fedora and a mask, who continued his vigilante activities after they have been outlawed;
- The Comedian - Edward Morgan Blake, one of the most active vigilante of the group, who is commissioned by the US Government;
- Doctor Manhattan - Dr Jon Osterman, a superhero with genuine powers who is blue in color, and is able to see the future and alter matter all the way down to a subatomic level;
- Ozymandias - Adrian Veidt, "The World's Smartest Man" and a retired superhero who has since made his identity public;
- Silk Spectre II - Laurie Juspeczyk - daughter of a retired superheroine Silk Spectre - Sally Jupiter, youngest of the Watchmen who retired when she became involved with Dr Manhattan;
- Nite Owl II - Daniel Dreiberg - inspired by the original Nite Owl - Hollis Mason, Dan used his skills as an inventor to become more gadget driven Nite Owl. However, he retired when vigilantes were outlawed.
You can read more about these vigilantes' bio at the Watchmen's official website here.
As for the villians, they were not mentioned in the official website but at Wiki's site, they mentioned the following other characters :-
- Moloch the Mystic - Edgar Jacobi - an elderly rehabilitated criminal, know when he was younger as an underworld kingpin and magician;
- Mothman - Byron Lewis - who is not the main focus character but one who appears in flashbacks;
- Dollar Bill - a first generation crimefighter who caught his cape in a revolving door during a bank robbery and was shot to death; and
- The Big Figure - the dwarf crime boss whom Rorschach put in prison.
Perhaps there are no real villains to this story but lets go watch this movie to find out :)

These stingrays looked like giant leaves floating in the sea. Apparently these stingrays migrate biannually to more agreeable waters. As they glide silently beneath the waves, they turn the blue water to gold off the northern tip of Yucatan Peninsula.
Sandra Critelli, an amateur photographer, stumbled across the phenomenon while looking for whale sharks.
She said: 'It was an unreal image, very difficult to describe. The surface of the water was covered by warmand different shades of gold and looked like a bed of autumn leaves gently moved by the wind.
Oh the video below has nothing to do with the Stingrays. I saw it and thought that it was a good reminder to us about global warming.

'Hunting Flies' He responded.
'Oh ! Killing any?' She asked.
'Yep, 3 males, 2 Females,' he replied.
Intrigued, she asked. 'How can you tell them apart?'
He responded, '3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone'.

CyberClean is a high-tech cleaning compound using Swiss Technology that is a true revolution in cleaning when it comes to cleaning cavities where conventional cleaners face physical limits. One good example would be cleaning our computer keyboards. Apparently tests have proven that our keyboards have a very high accumulation of germs and dirt, such as hair, dead skin, food and dust. These apparently can cause harm to our health.
The CyberClean is highly efficient and easy to use by just pressing CyberClean on the surface of the device and all the dirt will be trapped in the material and the germs on the surface will be killed.
Here, I will let the videos speak for the product.
How it cleans your keyboards, your phones and your remote controls at home
How it cleans your shavers
How it cleans your cars

Anyway, I caught these photos when I was shopping at Berjaya Times Square during the sale. It must be such a great coincidence for me to catch these photos as I hardly ever visit BTS. My favorite hangout place is still Mid Valley Mega Mall :). This must be my 2nd time at BTS in the entire year of 2008.
I love the pretty clown girl the best. She is such a natural :)

I was driving along Old Klang Road over the weekend and as I stopped at the traffic lights, the first thing I noticed was a little boy squashed between his parents on the motorbike and he does not have a safety helmet. And I thought to myself, how much does his parents love him, if they could put his safety at such risks. However, that is something which is quite common in our country as people always put convenience and perhaps cost cutting above safety.
As I was thinking this, then I notice that the mother probably does not love herself enough to protect herself sufficiently. I think in her case, she has put beauty above safety. She probably thinks that having long flowing hair is a symbol of beauty. And when you ride the motorcycle, to have one's long lovely hair flying must be a beautiful sight too.
Have a look at this picture and try to think of of the list of potential danger she might be putting herself in.
If her long lovely hair was to be caught in the spokes of her own motorcycle, if it might be caught by another moving vehicle, either way, it will spell pain, injury or maybe even death. I wanted to wind down my window and tell her to tie up her hair but as the light turned green, her motorbike hubby took off in a zoom and there was no way I could catch up. I seriously hope that somebody will tell her to put safety above beauty before an accident happens.

This is extracted from Wikipedia and I quote " To Keynes, excessive saving, i.e. saving beyond planned investment, was a serious problem, encouraging recession or even depression. Excessive saving results if investment falls, perhaps due to falling consumer demand, over-investment in earlier years, or pessimistic business expectations, and if saving does not immediately fall in step, the economy would decline."
As I was reading the article, it brought to mind something which I was given the other day as I was doing my grocery shopping. I do believe it was at Cold Storage, Ikano. This very nice cashier gave me this thick magazine (more than 1 cm in thickness) which looked something like the catalog Ikea used to give. As I had a fair amount of stuff to carry, I didn't really get a chance to look at the magazine. I just kept it together with my pile of magazines to be checked out later on when I am free.
The magazine turned out to be a book of savings vouchers. Wow.. the last time I saw one of these must be when I was studying in Australia. These vouchers really helped a lot, especially when you are a poor student with limited funds.
They have vouchers for Hardware, Car Accessories.. to Groceries to Baby Needs. Have a look at the list.
These vouchers are valid from the 1st of January 2009 until the 28th February 2009. I am not sure if you can still pick it up at the Cashier at Cold Storage or Giant. If anybody want some of the vouchers, do let me know.

One of my favorite Radio Channels is RedFM 104.9 as some of you may have already known if you have been following this blog :D. The RedFM DJs, Will and Shaz have always accompanied me to work each workday morning and JD and Dilly will accompany me back in the evenings. Long drives do not feel so bad with them as company. However, since mid December last year, Will and Shaz have left the station *sob but the station managed to get JD and Dilly to take the morning session. Terry is taking over the Evening Drive but I am still getting used to him. Oh well... like they say, the only constant in life is change.
Anyway, one morning, JD and Dilly were doing the Australia free movie passes thingy and I decided, oh heck, it has been a long time since I won something from them (4 tickets to Indiana Jones which I also won during JD's and Dilly's Evening Drive program), I decided to just send in my sms. In less than 2 minutes, my handphone was ringing and when I picked it up, wow... two of my favorite DJs were on the line. We chatted some and I told them that I was almost a stalker haha.. followed them from their evening program until their morning one :).
JD told me that I was the lucky 9th sms to come in and for a chance to win the RM400 Air Asia Ticket to Australia, he asked me to tell him why I would want to visit Australia and I told him this...
"I'd love to see the Men Down Under and have a Vegemite Sandwich with them whilst Waltzing the Mathilda. I'd be so happy that I'll be hopping alongside Skippy the Bush Kangaroo"... or something similar to that as I have already deleted the sms.
HaHa .. for that silly idiotic answer, JD and Dilly decided to give me the 4 Cinepasses to watch Australia the Movie but not the Air Asia Ticket. Instead they gave me a premium prize in the form of a bag. I only found this out when I went to collect the Cinepasses last week. Geez, thanks JD and Dilly.. *hugs.
Heehee.. you see, I am easily bought and am totally bribe-able. I am now the RedFM 104.9 live supportable. Happy Happy start to a new year :D. Cheers!

There was this time when I was queuing to get some tickets for Bedtime Stories at the Cineplex at Sunway Pyramid when I spotted a sign in the foyer. I like the comment penned in at the top of the notice. Just had to take a snap shot of it.
I wonder if the person who wrote the sign gave it to his or her reporting superior for checking before it was placed at the foyer of the Cineplex. Or worse, the reporting superior after checking apparently found nothing wrong with the wordings on the sign hahaha...
