No regrets

2010 is coming to an end.. And I'm sure everybody else will be blogging about how great their year have been and what they have done this year. Well, me too..

2010 have been a great year. I worked. I travelled. I eat. I slept. I bath. I shit. I shopped. I achieved. I loved. I dreamed. The end.

But before I end this year, I want to tell a story.

I had a lady who worked for me.. or my dad.. for the last 3 years. To me, she was almost family. Around Sept 2010, she left the company to settle some personal issues and planned to be back once its been settled. A week before Christmas, my mum received a call from her, crying because she found out that she is very sick. As I was very busy, I called her back only a couple of days before Christmas to find out that she was hospitalized and will be flying back to her hometown the next day. 3 days a go, I received a call informing me that she have passed away.

It happened so sudden and I was left with regret. If only I had called her earlier. If only I have visited her at the hospital. If only I have spend more time with her. If only... if only... And now I will never see her again. Regrets. Many. Sorrow.

Even as I enter the new year, I realized something. Life is short. It can just end anytime. And the sooner we realize that, the more meaningful and satisfiying our life will be.

There is so many things I wanna do. So many things I wanna try. So many dreams I wanna achieve. And this coming year - 2011, I promise myself that it will be a year of no regrets. A year of dreams. A year of living life to its fullest.

And yes, 2010 is coming to an end. As Rockstar is away playing at a gig to hundred of screaming girls, I parked myself in front of the TV, with my family, having a massage and considering putting on a mask. Bliss!! What a fantastic end to year 2010..

Will see you all next year..

Happy New Year everyone!!!

respect money.

I have so many post that I've started but did not manage to finish as my eyes will droop halfway through typing them.... Yes, most of my post are done at night before I go to sleep.. It's the only time in a day that I can sit down and take a breather...


Anyway, this post its not about how busy I am as all your eyes will start drooping by then and thinking that I'm such a boring person with such a boring life.. but this post is about MONEY!!!!

Ok, i see all the eyes wide open now...

Have you ever taken a couple of 10's or 50 from your purse, pay someone some money, collect the change and then STUFF THEM BACK INTO YOUR PURSE??? or pants or pockets?

If you are doing it or have done such things, I'm here to tell you to "Stop doing it"..

Why? Someone once told me, "If you want money, you got to learn to respect money". Do you see millionaires stuffing their money into their wallet or pants? Or are they arranged neatly by their values.. Learn from them. Learn to respect money...

Don't be like one of the street people who wads up their money and stuff them into some hidden corners on their body..

If you don't wanna be rich, then do this for the sake of all cashiers... it's really disgusting to take some dirty crumpled notes with a tinge of dampness from you... arrggghhh!!! maybe that's why the toll booth collectors wear gloves...

Learn to respect money.... and hopefully, money will come to you...

Galactic Laser

You know what's the IN thing now? Nope... It's no longer paintball.. I did paintball before and it hurts... Oh, this is something much cleaner, fun, with the same energy level minus the pain *can I hear the Yays!! from the girls*..

It's none other then LASER TAG!!!

What is laser tag? Just think of paintball with cooler looking guns, laser beams and high technology...

Just yesterday night, a couple of friends called me out for a game of laser tag... and to tell you the truth, I was a little reluctant at first... I have actually heard of the place before a couple of months back but haven't had the chance to try it out... But since Rockstar was away.. I decided to go for it...

And I did not regret it...

For a game of about 25mins, I paid RM20 (peak season. non-peak RM18). The cost of it is 1 game for RM20, 2  games for RM35 and 2 games for RM45... After paying up, we were lead into a room to watch a briefing via a stimulation video about a spaceship going to be destroy and we were given a final briefing on how to use our guns and stuff like that... It was quite cheesy :)

Next stop, the "weapons" room... lol... Actually it was more like the gear room where we have to choose our own vest and guns.. The guns were attached to the vest via a clip... There were rows and rows of vest with different names... Some I haven't heard of but some i know like Magneto, Nemesis, etc, etc... I choose Trinity!!! not cos I like her but it was the only girl-like name that I know.. So now I'm Trinity... Don't mess with me!!!

We divided ourselves into 2 groups. Green team and Red team.. I was with the Green Team. We were determine by the lights emitting from the vest.

Destination : Battlefield.. We were taken into a room with the pillars, and walls, windows, ramps, higher ground, lower ground,ramps... similar to a paintball field... the only different... It is DARK!!!! like you are in space... with stars and galaxies all over... and all you can see are the lights blinking from your vest and other people's vest...erm, and some other dim lights..  and they turned on the smoke machine..

Our target : Shoot the opposite team with your guns. Aim for the chest, back or shoulders.

Once you are hit, you will be immobilize for a couple of seconds (that means your lights goes out and your guns stops emitting laser beams). Once you are activated, you can start shooting...

It was really cool... I've always watch action movies where the special forces goes undercover the guns.. with the cool looking laser beams guns and all... and I always wanted to know how it feels like.. it felt the same except the noobness and the screams from us... oh, and we did not have any night vision glasses...

The game of 20 mins lasted like a few seconds....We were all sweating... Really good workout.. Don't bother going to the gym anymore. Here is something more fun, while working out..

Once we were done, we return our vest and were given our stats...

The vest and guns we wore could track the number of times we were zapped (hit) or how many times we zapped others, and also who zapped me and how many shots I fired and stuff like that.. Talk about high tech..

My stats?

Score :3601
Rank 3 of 5
Level : Recruit
Shots fired : 121
Shots hit : 29
Hit ratio : 23% (see la... so noob)Times zapped : 30 ( i died like 30 times..)

Quite ok la for a 1st timer. The lowest score in our group was 1800.. Highest 6600.. and she is a girl.. don't play play! But even though the highest scorer wasn't in our team, we still won. Green Team won!!!!

Isn' it cool? For guys who like the shooting games and all, don't bother about arcades anymore... this is the real thing!!! And did I forget to mention, if you manged to zapped someone 3 times, you get to 'rapid fire'. Actually, i did even know about this until I saw my stats, I had 'rapid fire' twice.. Erm... but all i did inside the battle field was just shoot shoot shoot...Luckily I did not shoot the my own team.. or maybe I did *hhmmmm*.. Actually there were many other functions available like "Invulnerability", "Payback", "Missiles", "Reset" and "Nuke". Don't ask me what it is cos I couldn't even reach that level.. hehe..

Anyway, just go experience it... it will be fun and worth the experience...

Check out their website at They are located in Mid Valley, on the 3rd Floor, North Court, in between Megakids and California Fitness.

Great job, Nick.. Thanks for bringing this to Malaysia...

Oh yeah, one last thing... They have membership. Just pay RM18 and you get discounts on everything... And its a lifetime membership..

I'm so excited for Round 2. Any takes?

trusty mechanic, un-trusty car..

In my house, we have an unofficial permanent "workshop" (Those that you can send your car for repairs, maintenance and check-ups). This "workshop" is open almost 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The "mechanic" is the best and more reliable mechanic I've ever known and I can trust him to save me anytime, anywhere *almost*, beret me for mishandling my car, teach me how to maintain and jaga my car.. and keep my car running...

Although there are occasion when my car will fall sick and need some repairs and upgrading...

Today was such a day. My car decided to die on me... It happened at the carpark of my workplace... Here's what happened.  Just before I turned up the ramp, the whole car just shut down and even after turning the key many times, it won't start... OMG!!!! There was a long queue building up behind me and everywhere was full as the Crocs Sales is going on.. As I was a couple of meters away from the Car Wash, I requested the Chinese guy to help me push my car to the side... And guess what he said "Mo Yan Tui" (translation "No One Push"). Considering that he had 3 other guys with him and only 1 car in the wash area.. I felt like smacking him... Arrgghhh!!! Anyway, I did manage to get some security guards to help me push my car to the side...

Next, phone call...... "Dad!!!! My car died." And he will come flying to save me. Problem solved..End of story..

Oh wait, he is outstation... OH NOO!!! Starts crying...
and crying..

And hoping someone will help me...
Haha.. that will be a sight...

Anyway, nope... I did not repair my car on my own... I'm not so knowledgeable... But I know well enough that it wasn't the batteries... It was my car distributor.. It died...  So I walked over to the mechanic shop, and made arrangements for the mechanic to come and change a new one...  Oh, I did threw many "Esther's glares" at the stuck-up car wash guy.. and happily block his car washed area... After all, he refused to help me push my car to a safer location..

So now, my car is running again... and I'm left with dirty fingers, sweaty shirt and a bill for RM285 :(

And in case you were wondering, I did call Rockstar.. but just to ask him where is the mechanic shop... I think I know more about cars maintenance then him :)

Lesson learned : get a new car...any volunteers to send me some moolah?

Leave me alone!!!

I'm so super duper busy and I get so tired at the end of the day that all I wanna do its to curl up on my bed and sleep... oh, and maybe a massage... I really need them... Lack of sleep is making me grumpy and irritated... and its bad cos I'm in a retailing industry.. I actually gets frustrated when customers walk into the shop *eyes roll*... I think its cos of the messed up sleeping time and the metal exhaustion of constant "I NEED TO FINISH MY WORK NOW!!!! I'm running out of time.. So leave me alone. Don't bother me. Go layan yourself".... Retailing something sucks because when people start to enjoy the holiday or festive season, we have to work extra hard and long..

Anyway, talking about that....'s DECEMBER!!! Yay... Christmas its just around the corner... and if you haven't started on your Christmas shopping yet, drop by my shop.. cos we are having SALES!!!! Oh wait, not exactly Sales as we need to apply licence for that... so its BEST BUYS!!!! It's about the same actually *duhhh* and its up to 40%.. *while stock lasts ok* so come grab them fast, do your shopping... and say hi to me.. I promise not to snap at you :)

Anyway, I need to go soon but here's something to bring that gleam into your eyes if whatever I said above "Christmas Best Buy" does not attract you...
