How to train your dragon.

If you like works by DreamWorks Animation you'd love this.
If you enjoy fantasy films, you'd like this.
If you like high quality animation...you'd like this too.
If you're in for a good story...and a good time, this one's for you.

Great story. Great animation. Nice work on viking voice talent. Still need anymore convincing?

Worth all your money watching it in the cinema so go get your ass to the cinema and watch it now.


And oh. If you happen to love D&D, this one will tickle you :P

Observation (aaaaa)

Try spoon-feeding someone. Be it your 'sayang'....your sister...your mum/aunt/dad....your niece/nephew....

Unconsciously, you'll have the urge to open your mouth as well when you 'suapkan' the food. You can keep your mouth closed, but you kinda have to make a conscious effort to do so.

Maybe its doesn't happen for everyone la but many people I've 'tested' with had the same reaction.


Really makes me laugh when I saw my 3 year old niece having the same 'aaaaa' open mouth effect when she fed her dad his birthday cake. lol!

Anyways! Birthdays.


Happy (already belated) Birthday to bro.

Happy Birthday (tmr) to you Amran :)

Happy (three-in-one, day after) Birthday to you guys, Loo Mun, my instructor Fandi, and dear Karolina.

I'm good in reading people...(daresay relatively good). Changes in their behavior and what not and why they act that way...given I spend reasonable amount of time with them (verbally, internet-ly, personally).

It's something I take pride in.

Dear blog,

I made fried brinjal (steamed afterwards) with garlic and dried shrimp for dinner. Love brinjals. But haram if dun fry them before steaming. Taste yuck yuck.

Also made fried cabbage with carrot, (lotsa) garlic and dried shrimp (again ;P )

Fried chicken with sesame oil and ginger cuz I ran out of ideas what else to do with them. It actually turned out allright. Hahaha!


Making mango pudding (from scratch) tonite...pasta sauce tmr.

Likes - Ferry

Ferry rides. Love them. Eventho it makes me feel icky and sticky from the ocean breeze (and probably the heat and sweating) after the ride, I love it.

Like it best when I'm not in a hurry, and I don't have to be so bloody restless while waiting for the passenger+car ferry to arrive (ferries in Penang-Butterworth come in 2 types. car+car load and car+passenger load) and just take my time and enjoy the breeze while crossing over to the other side. I enjoy watching out for jellyfish in the water. Especially love the feeling of the wind blowing my hair...eventho it may look like a freakin mess after that....its simply a lovely feeling.

Been going out with Shindee quite often these days. Since my office is barely 15 mins walk from the jetty, I'd walk there, take the ferry to mainland, spend the rest of the evening there, and then take the ferry back to the island. Got out of the car and went to the front of the ferry. Sat on the metal post where they'd tie the ropes they secure to the port when they dock, while chatting with Shindee, enjoying the company, and the breeze.


Life is good. :)



Random. Haven't updated in a while and not gonna bother to backtrack. Don't know when I'll update again. Heh.
