I Say...

There is a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.

One Missing

A few weeks ago, I bought my daughter a new pictures ensyclopedia. I bought it because it has 5 translations of languages for each item. It has Malay language, English language, Chinese language, Tamil language and Arabic language.

Not only it translate it to respectives character of each languages, it also wrote on how to pronounce it in each of respective languages. But am surprise that of all the items therein, Tamil language does not have its vocab for Strawberry.

What Is Wrong With These People?

I had enough with all kind of crap excuses given by government officer. Everytime we have dealings with them, usually end up with bad experience and incompetence. I did once having some matter with this one particular office and everytime I asked about my documents for the process which is suppose to be ready a week before, they are keep on saying under process and even to the extent of scolding me for not patient for waiting. Come on!! It should be done a week ago and now they are saying am not that patient!

Today I tried to contact one particular officer eversince 2pm. The staff keep on giving the excuse that the officer still haven't come and they don't know what time will she come. It could be later because they don't know whereabout this officer. Now is half an hour than 2pm and still they give me same old crap excuses.

No one seems to know where is this officer and they couldn't be bother to ask around. Meaning, they can just sleep at home coz no one will be bother of their attendance. What's wrong with these people????

MYEG - Simple, Convenient, Secure

I have Traffic Summon that due by this 24th. Just so happen that I saw in their notice that payment can be made through online So I went to that website and been trying to make payment via that site.

When the payment page opened, it says it need to redirect me to my bank webpage for the payment transaction. It also prompted me that if after 60 seconds, it does not redirecting me to the page, I need to login again and redo the whole process. But after more than 60 seconds I am still at the page where it stated "Simple, Convenient, Secure".

I keep on login for many times, but still no joy! I think this is is the most Secured webpage I've ever since and since it very "secured" I can't even make any payment for my summon. Sighhhhhh....

Do Now OR I Haunt You Later II

If I were to let the technician go off for CNY leave the other day, probably, my internet line will be activated only today which is almost a week after. As I stated earlier, TM had jumpered my telephone line for my broadband ADSL to 2MB downrate and I am just waiting for my account to be activated.

The funny thing is that the day when the technician came, he forgot to bring the modem (lucky that I have my own). He promised me to deliver it to me after his CNY leave which is yesterday. Again I never put my hope that high which is correct. He didn't deliver the modem.

But today he called me and sent me the modem. Oh my! Imagine I let him go before CNY the other day. It will be nightmare for me for not having an internet line for a whole.

Do Now OR I Haunt You Later?

I applied for a new Streamyx line for my new business and as usual it took ages for them to process. After checking my line, it already jumpered and the ADSL line is now stable.

Since the phone line is now ready for broadband, to speed up things, I called Streamyx just to asked them to activate my account. The rest I will do the setup on my own as waiting their appointed contractor or technician will take a longer time. But they've told me they can't do it as their policy is that I need to wait for the technician to come to do all those things which is scheduled today at 12noon.

Today is a day before CNY and I had a feeling that they will not come. My assumption was correct as they didn't turn up and neither do they call me. Call up Streamyx and made a complaint and they gave me the HP no of the technician in-charge. When I call that person, he told me that he can't attend to my order as he already on leave for CNY. Such excuse make me really angry as not only he refused to come, he also refused to just activate my account too.

I called again their call centre and make a complaint. They gave me the HP no of the Coordinator who is in-charge of the technician. Called them and make some noise over the blatant refusal of that particular technician. I don't mind if that technician call me earlier and tell me he couldn't make it. But he just left me without words and never had any courtesy to atleast honour the appointment.

I do understand he is chinese and tomorrow is CNY, but common, the apointment is at 12noon but not only he didn't called and I have waited for him to come for more than 2 hours. Atleast call me laaaa!

After making that noise to their bosses, then the technician called me and told me that he will come to install it today. See....! If he do his work earlier, which he supposely did, he might not be haunted by my complaint and to come again later in the afternoon. Now, sapa susah???

So Overly Unreasonable

My wife had a toothache yesterday till she could no longer tolerate the pain. She knew that she had to do something about the pain. So I drove her to the nearest dental clinic. Upon entering the clinic, she were asked whether she had made any appointment. She told them that atleast let the dentist have a look at her teeth or give her sonething to ease the terrible pain.

Then the dentist came and told her that the only time they can entertain my wife is in 2 weeks time. I was shock coz no one in the right on mind to ask their patient to come in 2 weeks time for a treatment when such pain is necessary for an urgent treatment! Its like asking a badly injured person to come in next appointment in 2 weeks time for a treatment. Common!! This is so unreasonable!!! I would understand that if the dentist is so busy, but by just looking into my wife's case, I don't think they need a whole day to solve it.

We decided to look for another dentist and we found few near to our house but still, they are too occupied with other patient and they couldn't attend to my wife. Then we have no choice but to go to my favourite old dentist which is about 3 miles away from home. Once arrived, he treated my wife in 10 minutes and the pain gone.

I wonder if my dentist can do some courtesy treatment to my wife, why can't others? It only takes 10 minutes of their time anyway...

Happy or not to be happy?

All of sudden my car reverse sensors went haywire. Always beeping eventhough there is nothing at the back. Went to Honda service centre and they advised me to change the sensors just to be sure.

Upon checking their inventories, they don't have any stock for my sensors and because of that they have to make an order specifically for my car. To do that I need to pay some deposit which poked out around RM100.

Later in the afternoon, my reverse sensors went OK. It does make me happy though, but at the same time, it makes me unhappy too for the money I have paid for something that doesn't need to be changed.

Beloved Mac

My PowerBook Titanium 1ghz PowerPC G4 is my longest serving Mac I've ever had. In fact, its my longest serving laptop which has been for service for more than 6 years without fail. Though it little bit of a lower specs, but it is incredibly good as it can still do video and photo editing.

However sadly, my PowerBook's charger is officially dead and neither those technician at Apple Shop can revived from the dead. Buying a new charger for that seems worthless as I need to order it from overseas straight from the source and its gonna hit me with a big bucks!

So I have to accept the fact that its almost time for its departure but am still crossing finger to get a secondhand unit of that obsolete charger. Till then, I just let my PowerBook laid to rest.

Shock & Shiok

It has been too long for my Powerbook 1ghz powerPC G4 serving me and in fact, its still serving me quite well. Good enough for browsing, simple mp3s download, word processing and even office networking. All of my Mac's friend have upgraded themselves to a new Intel-based Mac eversince the year it was introduced leaving me behind quite far.

Since I took up photography seriously, I foresee that all new recent DSLR's softwares are not meant for my old powerbook anymore. Its time for me to upgrade after 3 years holding it back!

So I decided to get an iMac. My first thought was that the intended iMac will be Intel Core 2 Duo 2.6Ghz with 320GB Hdd and all with wired keyboard and mouse. I was shock when my friend in ITFusion told me it is more than that!! 3.06ghz of Intel Core 2 Duo with 500GB Hdd and 4GB DDR3 ram. I am still clueless even now. Now I realised that I have left out quite substantial of my life for not bothering myself with the current Mac technologies.

Anyway, Moorey told me tomorrow is the day that my iMac will arrived. I am not sure whether am shiok state of mind or what. But am sure that am still in SHOCK!

First Night Without Mama

Eversince my second child was born, there is no history of my wife leaving me to babysit my 2 kids for a whole day and night. Tonight is the night as she had to go KL having a meeting next thing after breaksfast tomorrow morning.

At first, I am kind of worried as my son is actually emotionally attached to his mother. Anything and literally everything must come from Mama, even feeding his "nenen". I never had any track record of a success of giving my boy rest to sleep at night. And he is now alnost 1 year and 2 months old.

However, I may have underestimated my own capabillities. To my own surprise, I managed to rest both of my children to sleep even before 11.30pm just now without so much hassle. But I had to switch everything off including the light. And that make me sleepy too.

Ah well, its almost mid night and I had to be on standby all night long as this time, there are not gonna be any assistant for me. Hopefully I can go through tonight with a success. Amin....

Never Had The Guts

Everytime I saw a family with a small baby waiting for a bus on a road side, I've always had the urge or intention to stop and offer them for a lift. But sadly, it never happen. My mind keeps telling me that it won't work anyway because people will always put up a strange perceptions and at the same time having some suspicious feelings that I may do something bad to them. Yeah, obviously am unknown to them, then why should they trust me anyway. Let alone to accept my offer.

But on second thought, I may be having prejudice thought against them or perhaps, I don't have the guts to really stop and utter the offers. For whatever it is, I wish one day I have the courage to do so. Perhaps everyone can do too.

Ridiculous Concept Of Termination

I have an Astro set at my previous home but knowing we will move out, so stop paying the bill. So Astro cut off the line temporarily for amount that still outstanding.

Once we move out, I decided to terminate the account. When I called Astro they told me that to enable the termination, it must be made in 1 month notice AND my account must be active. I was like HUH???!!! BIG TIME!!!! This is so ridiculous.

Meaning that I have to pay for the outstanding amount first just to make the account active then plus another a month billing just to adhere the 1 month notice before it can be terminated for good. This is really an organized scam work!!! What am I suppose to do with the active account for a month if am not there to watch it?!

Power Of A Polite Greeting

Am so fed up with traffic jam. Everywhere we are facing the same issue including the place I went to yesterday. I went to one of Kuching shopping mall to survey certain items. But on entrance, there are so many cars and it is slow moving.

I was so angry too when some drivers who had no manners were cutting off my line. But upon entrance, while the security guard pass me the ticket, he said "very good morning to you sir!"

I was so shock at that time with this guy's politeness. He just smile at me and all of sudden, my anger just drop off and I smile. Suddenly with that greeting my day was brighten up. I never thought that a simple polite greeting can really change our mood. So don't underestimate it.

Which Come First?

So many unemployed now as nobody wants to hire those as they don't have any experience. Of course they don't have the experience as nobody have yet to give them a chance to be hired. Work first OR experience first?

Favourite Thang!

My favourite girl with my favourite camera!

I have DSLR camera but I preferred my Canon PowerShot G11. Small and mobile with full manual control.

Ahmad Darwisy in da house!

His name is Ahmad Darwisy. He is my 2nd child and the 2nd grandchild of my wife's family. He has been so active eversince in his mother's womb. As what the doctor said to us, if he is so hyper-active in the womb, he will definitely be more active when he is out!

Very true indeed! He is unstopable, very active, none stop action and less talking. A perfect baby espionage spy agent. As compared to his growth with his sister Ayuni, he is much-much smaller and slimmer. I guess there is no words to explain his attribute, but the following photos might help a bit!

The First Day

I remember my normal first day of school day of the year. Normally I would have atleast new pair of shoes and a trouser. New stationaries and books or even new hairdo. I use to walk to school and normally for the first day like today, I would go earlier.

The first day schooling the most important day for us as we normally choose our own table and chair and to choose where to sit in a classroom. We would go as far as to other block of classroom to get the finest table and chairs. Those who came late have to accept to sit up infront of the class (which none of the male students wants that).

How I missed those days. Now, we could just reminizing the old days and sending our kids to school.

Few Photos on HP during my trip

Long Break

Been a long period without any post. Not bored and neither tired, just having unsufficient time. Starts in first week of December 2009, am so busy packing up and shifting office to our new place. Pack, carry and unpack!

Then the 2nd week of December, the whole family were too busy with my sister's wedding. A lot of preparation and logistic for other family members to come from KL, Miri, Brunei, Limbang and Lawas.

Then come to the 3rd week of December. My sister's wedding comes to the 2nd stage. It was held in Bangi, Selangor. I went to KL just 1 day earlier for the wedding. Bring along with all the kids for a long vacation too.

After the wedding, I brought my kids to many places. Zoo Negara, Aquaria, BB Plaza, Sungei Wang, KLCC, Wangsa Maju and all kind of places. Thanks to my friend Apez for lending his car throughout my stay.

The 4th week of December, whole of my family on my mother in-law side went for a journey to Taiping, Perak for my wife cousin's wedding. We drove 7 cars including 2, 12 seaters vans. Its fun! Just a bit tiring for waiting all to arrived. We've stayed 2 nights at Taiping.

Now we are home after 2 weeks journey out of town. Missed my crib and my car. There you are, 4 weeks of excuses for not posting any new entry for the last month of 2009. Well, that is not a good excuse but I will try to post photos here later once everything uploaded here.

For that, good bye 2009 and Greeting to year 2010 to all!
