Out of ideas of what to cook for dinner? Dining alone? Salad makes an awesome, simple meal for one, or side dish for two or more!

Lost and Found

by Volvoxx On October 29, 2008 3:58 PM 0 comments
This is a first for me...

Usually I hear stories of how babysitters run off with parent's kids and what not...but this is the first time that I read in the news about a babysitter appealing to the parents to come get their little boy.

The boy, Richard, was probably kidnapped from his real home or something...aaa I dunno. A man came to the lady, Ah Moi, asking her to babysit the kid for a week for RM400. After a week, she has not seen the man. Aih...

I hope he gets back to his parents soon.

Day 1: First Impressions

by Volvoxx On October 28, 2008 10:36 PM 0 comments
My sis decided to drop me off on my first day...so...yay. No bus for me. :D But that also means that I'll be there at work freakin early.

So freakin early I was. 8am. My office hour's supposed to start at 9. So I thought maybe around 8.30-8.45, someone should already be at the office. I lepak around the front area of the building...took some pics....then head upstairs. Met another intern...and we waited....soon all 5 of us (yes...5 interns together in a rather small office) were there already...and no one to be seen. The door to the building seems to...blank to belong to any company. The ground floor directory's showing a different company name.

It was freakin 9am. No one to be seen...geh.

20 minutes later, a lady came over and opened the door for us. We later found out that she was Linda. Showed us in. Waited awhile summore for another guy to come...give us some form to fill...and hang around doing....nothing. We were assigned to our seats...and later divided into 2 groups. 2 of us were assigned to UG Consultantcy (to do accounting work wtf? Thank goodness I'm with the IT group but still...engineering students doing IT job? Well..not that I'm complaining ;P )

Mr Leong later assigned jobs for the 3 of us. Since I was slighly familiar with HTML, he asked me to update the client's webpage according to the client's request. Neo was given some database job, Tee (the girl's name is almost the same as mine..hee!) was asked to do a banner using Photoshop. First task was quite 'fun' for me actually....quite simple since I only had to edit using company's web builder but I had this problem finding pictures from stock photos that can relate to the client's 'motto' of sort. Adui...~ Took me awhile...pftt!

Later on, I was asked to edit some PHP template. I was like....wtf php? Never learnt that thing...always wanted to but never did! Here's where I start stepping on unfamiliar grounds. I learnt to do slicing with Photoshop (gee if only I figured that out sooner) then using the images to make a web template. Concept of header and footer (using include header.php ..then when u edit the header on one site, the rest will be edited as well...etc etc) and...um...stuff. I gotta admit. I prolly only understand 1/2 - 3/4 of what my boss is teaching me...and when its time to do what I'm tasked to do....I go blank awhile....try my best to regurgitate watever he just told me...managing only to recall 1/2 of what I understood.....and the rest...I just tembak, hoping that what I do is what he wants me to do/the right way to do it. Ah well. The day ended. I THINK I finished what I was supposed to do.

Tmr: Flash

....WTF!


(no I never really touched flash before...only time i TRIED was years ago and it didn't exactly go well)

Well I guess it's a good time to finally learn how to use flash..and actually having someone to teach me to do it. Hope I'm up for it...aih!

Conclusion: Day 1...wasn't so bad afterall. Oh...and food sucked. Wish I had just brought sandwiches and stuffed myself silly.

Picture picture...mm...taken using my Nokia 6300...not bad eh? Thanks dearie for hosting it! My hopeless net is...hopeless!

First day of work...tmr

It kinda makes me feel like a kid who's having 'first day of school' jitters...aih. Dunno what I should bring...don't know if I'm dressed properly...etc etc....

Hope it'll be smooth sailing tmr.

Happy working to those of you starting tmr too! :P

p/s: I hope I'll have a PC at work

Magic Nationals 2008!

by Volvoxx On October 27, 2008 8:00 PM 0 comments
Super delayed post! Hahaha! This was in mid-August...and was 3 of the best days I've had in a while...our tiny vacation :3 If you're here looking for Magic: The Gathering Kuala Lumpur Nationals 2008 coverage....you're at the wrong site :P ...Head over to QJ's site here for his Nationals 2008 Coverage

Last year we stayed in Eastin...cuz all the rooms in Cititel were booked (the venue of Nationals was in Cititel itself so it would be very convenient if we could get a room there)...thankfully we had Amran to drive us around...else it would have been really troublesome then.

This time around, we made early bookings and managed to get a room there. It proved to be very very much more convenient, not to mention quite fun and relaxing. For the first time, I could go watch a midnight show in KL with QJ...:P ...it didn't matter what time the show would finish cuz...we were practically living in the mall itself...well..it is attached :P

It so convenient to just go shopping and dump all ur stuff in the hotel and go shopping summore...or if your feet feels like its gonna crumble, just go back to room to rest awhile...haha!

Well that being said however...I didn't spent a lot of time shopping. In fact, I spent most of my time in the tournament area. Somehow, I kinda enjoy it..hee hee

Here's some of the pics I took throughout the 3 days.


View from the room


QJ getting prepared for the day ahead


The trophies


Jia Yung, one of QJ's regulars here in Melaka :D


/grin..someone got stalked! XD


:3


^^;


The judges


We went Chilis on the 2nd night (first day of tourney) there and guess who we bumped into? The whole gang of judges :P ...Aaaa Chilis...the food's so good...too bad its just so freakin expensive >.<

Happy Birthday Daddy! ...tho...I highly doubt you'll be reading this... :P

Sorry I couldn't be home this year...I'll make it up to you next Christmas!

Have a blast of a time with the rest of the family at home :)

p/s: Happy Birthday to you too, Sarah!
pp/s: Happy Deepavali to all those who are celebrating! Enjoy the tosai and chapati on my behalf... :P

Online from PJ

by Volvoxx On October 25, 2008 6:28 PM 0 comments
Just got to my sister's place from Melaka (thanks for the ride Amran >.< ....totally stuffed ur car to the brim)...brought my PC here :D since I'll be bored stiff w/o a PC and I don't wanna rely too much on my sister's laptop...didn't bring speaker tho so... /stares at earphones...that will have to do for now.

Currently stealing someone's wireless to get online...kekekeke...rather annoying how my MSN and Yahoo keeps DCing tho ...but ah well...beggers cant be choosers...need to find a better spot sometime later...mmmmm....lets hope this fella keeps his line unsecured until the end of my ITP :D

Starting my ITP this Tuesday. Mix feelings about it. Kinda excited to try something new, meet new people, do some work and actually get money out of it (to fund my small wishlist :P and for Christmas... XD ) and looking forward for the times I get to visit QJ in Melaka...Not exactly sure yet what we're expected to do in our company but I'm glad I'm not the only MMU intern in the company. Hope they'll provide a PC with net to work with (so that I can gtalk and facebook in between...um...nvm) What I'm definately not looking forward to is waking up super damn early and having to take bus to work... -.- ...meh....well at least I have a sister around to make sure I really DO wake up (don't worry bout that, Dearie :P) and she can send me to Kelana Jaya station..I just need to take the feeder bus to my work place.....which...I still have no idea where. I'll need to check it out tmr :P

Quite a number of my friends are in KL....wonder if we'll actually have time to go out meet up and have a drink or two...Amran's here in PJ too now that he's graduated (get a job soon! ...then treat us to a meal XD)

Sis stocked up the fridge before she left to go home(SP) so...I won't starve for these few days.... (heck I won't starve even if she didn't make the effort to go stock it up...her fridge is forever well stocked XD)

Dinner calls! Laters~

Jalan Alor -> Jalan Kejora

by Volvoxx On October 21, 2008 10:24 AM 0 comments
A week ago...I wrote this:
HAHAHAHA!

The government has yet again manage to amuse the rakyat with their silly antics. They figured the whole area should be renamed to reflect the names of stars (Bukit Bintang)....so they promptly renamed the famous Jalan Alor....to Jalan Kejora
I was in the library waiting for QJ to finish his ITP presentation...and he called before I could finish the post so I left it at that....and forgot to continue it :P

Yesterday I read in The Star Online....

Jalan Alor will keep its name - that’s the decision of Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Zulhasnan Rafique.

It is understood that the decision was made by him after listening to feedback from the public and City Hall following the uproar over the name change of the world-renowned street to Jalan Kejora.

....

“The Datuk Bandar will an­­nounce the decision next week, please be patient,” he said.


LOL...Never thought they'd change their mind. I thought they would just ignore the uproar over the issue and keep the name as Kejora...and the people would just ignore the name change and keep referring it to what it was for the past 35 years: Jalan Alor....Looks like someone up there has brains afterall..../snigger

The move was stupid. Imagine the number of people who are affected, would have to change their address just because the ministry thought it'd be nice to name the roads after stars...lame. Not to mention tourists who would get confused over the new/old street name. Plus...locals would just stubbornly call it Jalan Alor anyway...Imagine this:

A: Where's your shop?
B: Jalan Kejora there.
A: Jalan what? Where the heck is that?
B: Aiya....Alor there la...
A: Ooooo..Jalan Alor there horrr...Aiyo say la!

Mmmm...wonder what silly things would the government whip up next...

(I hope my ITP employer doesn't bully me >.< )

Kinda look forward to my industrial training and staying in KL with my sis (but at the same time dreading the time away from QJ again...sigh)...Nice thing is, we're getting paid! That's gonna be funding me my new HP (badly need a new one), a new external HDD and....um...stuffs! Hahaha (gee, haven't started working and already got a 'to-buy' list)

Actually, I think I'm gonna go get a new HP before I work. Then 'ganti' balik the money from my savings when I get my pay later. Cuz this phone of mine is simply driving me nuts...sometimes I don't even bother bringing it out anymore cuz its simply pointless-dies within first our unplugged from the power =,=

Well...in any case, I better get back to my notes and tutorial. :P
