Japanese Vending Machine Craze

Greetings Peeps,

Yesterday when I was at Mid Valley, I just had to try the toy vending machines at Toy R Us. It was brought in by the well known toy distributor known as Litt Tak and apparently after reading about it from the papers, I was curious on trying it out.

To use the vending machines, you will need tokens that cost Rm 4.00 each. The shape of the tokens are different as well for security reasons to prevent fraud. As so, no regular coins can be slotted in.

Most toys require 2 tokens minimum but there were some which cost more. The dragon ball characters costs about 3 tokens.

Looked at what cost me RM8.00.

Vending Machine

Take care....

50th Wedding Anniversary

Today, I was at Holiday Villa Subang for the 50th Wedding Anniversary and 80th Birthday of P.S Nair, a long known family friend. My mum came down this weekend for this special occasion.

The celebration started close to 12 noon when the couple walked into the Victorian Ballroom to a strong cheering crowd of over 200 family and friends. I can’t help it but recall the times when I was in Liberia, Africa when they use to buy toys for me during Christmas.

The thing that triggered me most is when we met up in Penang earlier this year and Auntie Uma, (PS. Nair’s Wife) can remember my exact birth date. It is an amazing thing for people that we have not met for years to remember such things and it does take an effort. This are the ones that I will keep close to my heart.

Me & My Mum
My Mum & Me
Uncle Nair was my Dad’s colleague when he served in Uniroyal Liberia. Mr. Nair spent about 20 years there and it is where he made his fortune. He can get all the respect from me as he has no Degree or proper qualifications. An amazing achievement I would say.

He is 80 years old but do not look anywhere near such age. I believe that he is one of the oldest people there but he certainly did not look that way.

The event was organized by their daughter Priya and her husband Keith. The program from the day included a speech from their grandson, performances by family members and renewing their wedding vows.

There was a short skit which showed how the couple first met in the days before Malaysia achieve independence and was under the British. Mr Nair was from Malaysia and Aunt Uma was from India.

Both of them are now jetsetters, spending their days in India, Malaysia, USA and Japan. The couple will be leaving for the States on August 18 and hopefully I will be arranging a meet up before they leave.

Looking at them inspires me and I envy the life he has lived. He can proudly look back and say that it was an amazing 80 years spent. From now on, I will look up to him as an idol.

Signing off….

TGI Fridays (1 Utama)

Today is my Department partner, JC’s birthday.

Early at work, most of us sitting in a row were already in partying mood with some of us already dressed to do so. I decided to warm up the morning by playing some RnB tunes but was later told that I can’t do so as it interrupts others. I off course defended myself by saying that it was still early and not much people were around. I considerately put on my headphones at nine when work started to get serious.

However, everyone of us were chatting away using the in house messenger about the celebration afterwards.

I spent the rest of the day practically trying to stop thinking about partying and concentrating on finishing up my work. I left at about 5.30 on Song Yia’s ride to get back and get ready before heading to TGI Fridays at 1-Utama for the celebration.

Arriving early there, we waited for the others. I decided to take up the fountain drink with unlimited refills of Cola Lights which makes me feel less guilty as it mentions zero calories on the can. The funny thing is that, they will open up a can every time I requested for a refill. This made it easier for me to count how much round of cokes have I drank. To make up for the amount that I have paid for, I would need to drink at least 7 cans but that never happened.

For the meal wise, I decided to share the 39.99 set which consists of an Appetizer, Main Course and Dessert. I could not enjoy the Appetizer and Dessert because I was having sore throat. I must remember to take enough fluid!

We had fun the whole night and took loads of pictures. Some sneaks of the night are as below:

The birthday girl, JC was required to give a speech when approached by the team of waiters but refused to. Although my main objective was to get her in her birthday suit, I would settle for a speech which we later manage to force out of her. She was presented with a birthday cake which we all assume was part of the complimentary service.

As we were towards the end of our time at Fridays, a waiter came and apologize and explained that the cake was meant for another table and there were a misunderstanding. We of course gave up the cake but I can’t help wondering how would the other table feel after we have blow out their birthday cake.

The party continued on at Laundry in the Curve just opposite the new GSC’s Cineleisure. I got home at about 3 in the morning the next day to see my mum and sis asleep.

Well, that’s all for now and till next time, take care.

Wonders of Flickr

Party Bunch, originally uploaded by bennyong.

I have discovered the wonders of Flickr. Now, I can save diskspace and bandwidth by having my pictures hosted on Flickr and use their tool to post them up on my blog.

It saves time and I get to organize my pictures. However, the only downside is that I have a 20MB bandwidth limit on my uploads monthly.

Whatever it is, I'll be using flickr to post any picture related posts on my blog. You should do it too.

I am still strugling on getting my gallery to work with my blog. Happy "flickring" if you are going to start using it with your blog.

Added on 31st July 2006: Just to compliment the existing picture post above, I decided to give you bunch a bonus video. I am also looking for a plugin that will automatically let me add in my Youtube video collections.

Take care....!

Adding Flickr Gallery To My Blog


Buenos Tardes,

That was good afternoon in Spanish. Today, I have decided to search the internet to recover some digital pictures that I have lost from my corrupted storage, misplacing them and etc. I manage to come up with a decent amount from the search and have updated my flickr account with them. However, I have yet to organize them in albums.

For a change, I have also integrated the flickr gallery into my blog using a wordpress plugin but there seems to be some layout problems that I have yet to solve. Take a sneak peak of the gallery here. Just as an additional info, you can just simply access my flickr page straight away to look at the pics.

So, Angie, if you are reading this, I hope those pics will satisfy you.

Well, keep you all updated shortly.

The Pastor & The Ass

Another e-mail from ages ago that I dug out .

A pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won.

The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the race again, and it won again. The local newspaper read:


The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in another race.The next day, the local newspaper headline read:


This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the pastor to get rid of the donkey. The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day:


The Bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10. The next day the paper read:


This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild. The next day the headlines read:


The Bishop was buried the next day....

The moral of the story is.... Being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief and misery... and even shorten your life.

So be yourself and enjoy life..... You'll be a lot happier and live longer!

Enjoy... good news is that it is mid week and two more days to struggle before the weekend....

Are Computers Male or Female

Mr. or Mrs. Computer

Is your computer male or female? As you are aware, ships have long been characterized as being female (e.g., "Steady as she goes", or "She's listing to starboard, Captain!"). Recently, a group of computer scientists (all males) announced that computers should also be referred to as being female. Their reasons for drawing this conclusion follow:

1.  No one but the Creator understands their internal logic.

2.  The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.

3.  The message "Bad command or file name" is about as informative as, "If you don't know why I'm mad at you, then I'm certainly not going totell you".

4.  Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.

5.  As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

However, another group of computer scientists (all female) think that computers should be referred to as if they were   male.  Their reasonsfollow:

1.  They have a lot of data, but are still clueless.

2.  They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they are the problem.

3.  As soon as you commit to one you realize that, if you had waited a little longer, you could have obtained a better model.

4.  In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.

5.  Big power surges knock them out for the rest of the night.

Well, you come up with your own judgement. My computer is bi-sexual because it has both characteristics.

Singapore Here I Come

My department partner and me or better known as the DC duo at work are going to Singapore next week. Our proposal was approve and we will be visiting BAT Singapore and things like that.

We will be sorting out our transport and accommodation so that it fits the proposed budget.

I never thought that I will be returning to Singapore this year after my trip there earlier this year. This teaches me to never say never.

Well, I need to get back to work. I’ll catch you later.

Easy Sunday

Today, was a relaxing day for me.

I stayed at home for a change after two late nights. I manage to catch up with some housekeeping of my desktop and updating my blog. Besides that, one of my sweetest and most adorable friends, ANGIE has loaned me her collection of CDs for me to rip. (To those watchdogs out there: I am ripping music for my own personal use)

This time around, I use the built in rip function of Windows Media Player. To ensure maximum compatibility of your music, please rip them as Mp3s. Here is how to make sure that you are going to get them as mp3s:

Tools>Options>Rip Music and select MP3 under Rip settings as your format of choice.

I use to use a good freeware program called CDex. It gets the job done. I found it while browsing for freewares at

Besides ripping music, I watched Zathura. This is the movie from the makers of Jumanji and is a modern version of the previous I would say. Give this movie a skip as there was nothing worth watching it for.

That’s all for me now and I am dreading to go to work tomorrow. Sigh*

Paintball Match At Desa Waterpark

Once again, I woke up from my mobile ringing feeling a little bit hung over from last night at Karma. I was told that my ride was coming in half an hour’s time. I got ready and at 11.00, there I was in Alison, Sri Petaling having my breakfast with Arnold. I was trying to get tips from a veteran player for the paintball game later.

I have played once at Bukit Jalil but am excited of the different maps in store. The place is called TAG at Taman Desa Waterpark. The building is practically an abandoned parking lot of about 4 split floors and a basement. There were fields next to the building were apparently there were another three maps.

TAG Paintball Park

The first two games we played indoor were called total annihilation. My team, Green won twice. I manage to survive the whole first round and eliminated the last player standing of the opposing team. The second round, I face a player which was not sporting. I have managed to shoot him directly on the mask but he still continues on playing and ran towards me and fired at close range. This act is very dangerous although I believe he was doing it out of excitement and unintentionally.

TAG Paintball Park

The next game played was called President. In this match, the bodyguards which will have unlimited life have to escort and bring an appointed President to the checkpoint safely. The rest of the remaining players will be terrorists and have to kill the president. I believe to win this game; you will have to hide and just save your bullets for the president and not fire on the bodyguards. My major mistake during this game was to fire at the bodyguards which revealed the place I was hiding.

TAG Paintball Park

The last two matches were carried out outdoors on a muddy forest like atmosphere. We were almost eaten alive by the mosquitoes in there. The played map was called Island and the objective was to capture the flag. There was only one flag and one team is supposed to protect it and the opposing team trying to get hold of it. It is usually the team guarding the flag that wins because of the way the map is. Visibility was poor because of the colder surroundings after the rain. Although it was not the safest location to play in at that time, we had tons of fun.

Here are some tips to share if you are playing paintball:

1) Wear long sleeve T-shirts
2) Wear Long Pants
3) Wear A Cap or Scarf
4) Bring Insect Repellent

And if you have a question about which Paintball location I prefer, it would definitely be Tag at Desa Waterpark.

Hopefully, today will be a good practice that will get me ready for the upcoming match that I will be having with the Management Team next time they are around in Malaysia.

Well, that’s all for now and take care…..

Bad Karma

I have been craving for clubbing since a week ago but since it is not most of my friends cup of tea (or beer I should say), I came to agreement to go to a place called Karma in Hartamas.

I was promise a pub like atmosphere with a dance floor for me to shake my excessive fat away. Everything seems fine when we first arrive but things got worse and worse as every moment passes by.

The service was really bad as the waiters were really untrained and was not willing to help. There were insufficient chairs, the music was crap and all I know is that I am not going back there again.

Fortunately, I have my friends with me. Here are two pictures from that night worth sharing. I am trying my hardest not to fall asleep in one of them

Dorm : A Thai Horror Flick

Thailand has been famous for horror flicks like Shutter (which I have yet to watch) and Nang Nak (A Tale of A Women Who Died in Labor).

Today evening, out of spur of the moment, me and my buddies decided to watch Dorm which the trailer from my previous movie outing to watch Stay Alive caught my attention. I went into the cinema at Sunway Pyramid, armed and ready to be scared my life away.

Dorm Poster

The story was about a boy named Chatree who was forcedly sent to an all boys boarding school. Reluctantly living his life and buddies behind, he was in a new place living in the dorm run by Ms Pranee and was picked by the others as the outcast. A group of kids decided to tell him ghost stories and one about a boy who died in the now abandoned swimming pool. The movie started out slow and with typical eerie sound effects.

I am giving you a warning that a major spoiler is ahead of the story. So, please stop reading if you do not wish your movie experience to be destroyed.

Chatree soon made friends with Wichien and became very close


Just manage to dig in one of my e-mail accounts that I have not checked for ages. It was about definitions. This is super cool.

Pirates of The Caribbean 2

Captain Jack is Back!

Well, finally after ages of not writing any review, I have challenged myself to do so.

I was at TGV, 1-Utama to catch the flick on Movie Wednesdays. It is mid-week and the cheapest day to get tickets. The funny thing about Malaysian cinema will be the subtitles. If I am right, the title of the movie in Bahasa was Lanun-Lanun Pulau Caribbean 2: Peti Orang Mati. Don’t get me wrong as I am proud of my national language but the translation just sounds plain weird.

Here are some details on the movie courtesy of Yahoo! Movies:

Also Known As: Pirates of the Caribbean 2
Pirates of the Caribbean 2 (United States)
Pirates of the Caribbean II
Pirates of the Caribbean: Treasures of the Lost Abyss
Production Status: Released
Genres: Action/Adventure, Adaptation and Sequel
Running Time: 145 min.
Release Date: July 7th, 2006 (wide)
MPAA Rating: PG-13 for intense sequences of adventure violence, including frightening images.
Distributors: Buena Vista Pictures Distribution
Production Co.: Jerry Bruckheimer Films (The Same Guy Who Brought Us CSI)
Studios: Walt Disney Pictures
U.S. Box Office: $258,364,766
Filming Locations: Caribbean Islands
Produced in: United States

Now, let us move onto the real deal about the movie.

In the second installment of the movie, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) once again brings us through a crazy adventure. Although he has lifted the curse of the Black Pearl from the first movie, Jack has an unsettled debt with the legendary Davy Jones which captains the Flying Dutchman.

The wedding of Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) is interrupted with them joining in the adventures lead by Captain Jack and the crew. Lord Cutler Beckett of East India Trading company joined in the adventure as he wanted to get hold of Davy Jones heart that will give him control of the sea. Will’s father, Bootstrap Bill makes an appearance as one of the cursed crew of Davy Jones.

This movie is fun and features a lot of brand new and original jokes and scenes. Johnny Depp once again delivers a powerful performance and never fails to make us laugh. However, the movie was too long and does not have a major climax or proper ending. Two thumbs up to the effects team for doing an amazing job especially on Davy Jones with the detail of human emotion shown on the face. There was a good mix of races in the crew worth mentioning.

The movie is a must watch with the first movie still being the best.

That’s all for the moment.

Money & You


This evening, I attended a preview at Holiday Villa Subang on a course called Money & You. I manage to convince my always reluctant of seminars sister to come along. First and foremost, I saw an ad on the papers on Sunday evening on this event. The thing that caught my eye was the testimonials which includes the fame author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Robert T. Kiyosaki and the well known Anthony Robbins to name a few. Closer to home, they have a list of amazing testimonials as well.

Being the typical me, I attended the thingy out of curiosity. As you may know, I have attended various previews and seminars as I made it a commitment to attend at least two a year. I tend to be very picky on such trainings but once I am convince and satisfied from the training, I will go for it.

I will not be explaining what the course is about and am not trying to sell it or whatsoever. If you are interested, you may visit the site for more information.

The preview was totally different from others that I have attended as it involves a lot of game playing. My group performance was disappointing because of many reasons. The only thing that I could have change from the games will be my level of participation. I was somewhat reserved but since my initial objective was to observe, I think I executed it well.

I have paid my deposit on the course and will be attending it in November. I was promise a 2 days training course in about two months time before the major 3 and half days.

I believe that is all for the moment and till next time, take care.

Lantern Festival


It is once again a great Friday evening spent. We left work at about 6.30 to make it to Water Lily Cafe in Puchong on the same building as Binary University College for dinner. The food was ok but the service is shit. So, I would not return there again but having my friends justified for that.

Water Lily At Puchong

Water Lily Cafe @ Puchong

Later on, we headed for the Lantern Festival Show at Bukit Jalil Stadium. We spent a brief 20 minutes in there after paying a well worth it cover charge of RM5.00. Some of the main attractions were the local landmarks like the Shah Alam mosque and KL Twin Towers which was made of glass and cloth and illuminated.

I think seeing the dragon made out of chinaware paid off the cover charge. It was a good estimated over 100 metres long. The puzzling thing is that it is all tied together with strings.

We spend most of the time looking through the cool displays and checking out the materials it was made of. As I pass it everyday, I always assume that all of it is made of cloth but after having a good look, I realize that there are no boundaries of what one can use to make lanterns. Some of the cool materials used are glass bottles, umbrellas and chinaware. Well, check out the cool pics from that festival.

The festival is ending this month and I encourage everyone to visit. The remaining three of us headed down to Hartamas for a drink later on at Christos. I enjoyed the time there because it was a small and comfortable group.

Award Winning Mime

Today at work, I had loads of fun. As you may know from my previous post, the top management of my department from UK and Australia paid us a visit. They had in store for us their plans and asked us for their feedback.

We were challenged to present our feedback in various ways including Acting, Singing, Drawing and my team Mime. We wasted no time in writing down our points and worrying about how to mime them later on.

I had a blast while trying to mime out the points. Here are two pictures of the action but it would have been better if we have the video instead.

Dinner At Tamarind Springs

I just came back from having dinner at Tamarind Springs organized by my company. It is the first time I am meeting the management team of the department that I am working in. Since the start of my new career, most of my colleagues and me have been working remotely. The closest we had got to our managers was by conference calls.

Hence, this dinner was very necessary as we can finally match the names to faces. It was such a relaxing dinner and we had so much fun. Here are some pictures from the dinner.

Feeling Dry

It has been quite a dry week for me or should I say month. It has been ages since I last posted a product review, written an article or even produce good content for my blog. I use to do this on a regular basis but feel rather dry nowadays. Now I even wonder how regular full time bloggers do it? Was it just a phase of my life that I was embracing? I reflected back upon what I said and realized that I was blogging for fun. Since I never kept a diary in my life and have always been impressed with the world of the internet, why not just have a blog and express the things I wish to say. Now, I have truly found the reason how this blog came about. As far as the content matters, I am enjoying myself updating the blog regularly and am doing it more for self fulfillment.

For the case of regular bloggers, some of them take it as a source of income. Well, not in my case. Do I wish I can earn money from my blog? Of course I do. However, it is not the main reason of my blog.

Well, at least I had something out of my chest and found out the reasons of having my blog. What do you think of my blog so far? I have roughly hundreds of visitors and hundreds of page views daily but rarely comments.

That’s all for the moment and take care….

World Cup Finals (Fries VS Pizzas)

Finally, the world cup in Germany is over.

I just got back from Penang earlier today so that I can join my buddies to watch the finals of the world cup besides having to get back to work. To be honest, this is the first world cup finals I have watched outside of the home. I use to be the guy who rather spend time at home.

We had dinner at Kim Gary in Sunway Pyramid (see picture) before heading to a place in Subang Jaya to watch the game.

Kim Gary @ Sunway Pyramid

My views on the final were that the game was a bit too long as I was worried about getting to work and concentrating the next day. I stood by the Pizzas (Italy) from the start and they indeed won from the penalty shoot out. It all came down to the team not giving up after the Fries (France) scored the first goal in 7 minutes. Kudos to that!

Whatever it is, I had loads of fun.

Fast & Furious 3 Tokyo Drift Video

I went to the The Curve on the day my car was stolen. What better movie to watch to escape reality than Too Fast To Furious. Well, ironic isn't it? To watch a movie about cars when my own car was stolen. I can't moan and stay sad all day, now can I. To be honest, I wanted to check out the new Cathay Cineplex as well.

I really enjoyed the movie very much and am crazy about the theme song when the lead character drove into the multi storey parking lot. I manage to track down a video which plays that song from Teriyaki Boyz and feature clips from the movie. I hope you enjoy it.

I had various feedback on the movie with some saying it is the worse of the franchise. To my taste, it is the best Fast and Furious movie and am proud it is directed by an Asian guy. Some complained that the movie was all about cars. Duh! What do you expect? An epic battle scene from lord of the rights as the climax? Well, I stand by my statement as it being the best in the 3 movies.

That's all folks...

Labour Pain Joke

Just received this mail a couple of minutes ago and it was a good way to start the morning.

A married couple went to the hospital together to have their baby delivered.

Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had invented a new machine that would transfer a portion of the mother's labor pain to the father of the baby. He asked if they were willing to try it out. They were both very much in favor of it.

The doctor set the knob to 10 percent for starters, explaining that even 10 percent was probably more pain than the father had ever experienced before. But as the labor progressed, the husband felt fine, so he asked the doctor to go ahead and bump it up a notch. The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20 percent pain transfer. The husband was still feeling fine.

The doctor checked the husband's blood pressure and pulse and was amazed at how well he was doing. At this, they decided to try for 50 percent.
The husband continued to feel quite well. Since it was obviously helping out his wife considerably, he encouraged the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him.

The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain. She and her husband were ecstatic. When they got home, the mailman was dead on their porch.

Enjoy and have a nice day!
