Add Another Notch To The Age-O-Meter

30 May 2002 14:55

Yes, ma'am. I turn another year old as of 7.18pm just now. Nothing out of the ordinary happened and not that I'm expecting any in fact. Still got up, got to work, with the rest of the day pretty much went by like any other. I did get some birthday greetings anyhow, so many thanks, y'all! Appreciate your remembering! What I wished still applies. Heh!

True To Oneself

29 May 2002 14:09

Definition:

To be true to oneself is to seek the truth of what it is to live an authentic life as a human person. This is more than being polite and tolerating others. This is trying to accept others and be concerned with the good, dignity and justice of others.
I wish for peace, happiness, goodwill and good health to everyone.

Selamat Pengantin Baru: Syed & Mardhiyah

28 May 2002 13:46

My ex-classmate in MRSM Jasin back in 1991/1992 held his wedding reception today. The ceremony also doubled up as a reunion for members of Class P of the said junior college during those years. It was certainly great seeing some of your friends whom you haven't seen in a decade! Too much water under the bridge to catch up in one afternoon. Nevertheless, contact has been re-established and hopefully we'll be much better off in keeping up with each other as compared to the last 10 years!

My respect to Aril for choosing the most unorthodox wedding gift for the couple on our behalf! You can pretty much figure out from the pictures! ;)

Coulthard Breaks The Duck, Ends Schumachers' Streak

27 May 2002 15:34

You gotta love today's race! Formula 1 came to the most glamorous, twistiest and tightest circuit on the calendar, i.e. Monaco. David Coulthard finally ended the Schumacher brothers' winning streak for this year's grand prix. He was very much in the lead in his McLaren throughout the race right from the beginning after a superb start from 2nd place despite having a couple of scares during the race itself with some slight smoke coming out of his engine and the Michelin tires behaving rather peculiarly. Juan Pablo Montoya (Williams BMW) posed some challenge behind Coulthard for about 30-something laps before retiring due to engine failure. Michael Schumacher (Ferarri) was then pretty much in Coulthard's rear view mirror all the way to the chequered flag but wasn't able to do much due to the tight nature of the track. The younger Schumacher had a relatively easy race towards the end. The position for 4th and 5th was fought tooth and nail all the way to the end between Jarno Trulli (Renault) and Giancarlo Fisichella (Jordan Honda) with the former triumphing. Barichello (Ferarri) did put up a fight for the last point of the race with Frentzen (Orange Arrows) but the latter held on to the end for the deserved point leaving Barichello walking away empty handed from the race.

Race standings: 1 - David Coulthard (McLaren Mercedes), 2 - Michael Schumacher (Ferarri), 3 - Ralf Schumacher (Williams BMW), 4 - Jarno Trulli (Renault), 5 - Giancarlo Fisichella (Jordan Honda), 6 - Heinz-Harald Frentzen (Orange Arrows)

Life's Little Epiphanies Courtesy Of The Idiot Box

25 May 2002 16:33

Ever had one of those instances where art imitates YOUR very own life? Some movies or TV shows (the good ones at least) actually do have substance and over the past week, I came across just about a few that I can somewhat relate to. I shan't reveal what TV show or movie (for the sake of not adding on to that corniness factor that I are already present in me :P) but suffice to say, it was enough to actually make me stop, reflect and think about the whole situation. I should watch TV/movies more often then...

Crud! I thought I got another nasty mouth ulcer but a quick look with the flashlight showed that I got a growing wisdom tooth that's biting into the wall of my cheek. As much as I hate to, I think it's gonna be a trip to the dentist soon. Actually, it'll be my first trip to the dentist ever since, uhmmm lemmesee... I was 11 years old? I was lucky enough that all my baby teeth fell off on their own and that my teeth turned out rather well arranged too without much manual intervention. Anyways, think with the holiday weekend going on, it's gotta wait a bit. Can't grit my teeth as much though for the next couple of days... uggh!

Having trouble deciding between two silverscreen hotties this summer? This might help you decide! Heheh!

Entertaining Spiderman

23 May 2002 14:50

I finally got to watch Spiderman this evening with my colleagues after repeated aborted attempts to watch it ever since it came out. While I may be quite the Star Wars fan, after watching both, I reckon Spidey rates better as far as entertainment value is concerned. The movie has quite a good balance of action, drama and heart in it. It almost faithfully retells the story of Spiderman's origin from the comic book. Note that I said "almost" there. Some adaptations had to be made in the transference to the silver screen. Most notable differences were Peter Parker being bitten by a genetically engineered spider in the movie (as opposed to a radioactive spider in the comic book) and also the web fluid which seemingly comes out of the veins of his wrists (as opposed to a specially created wristband that shoots out web fluid in the comic book). However, it was tastefully done and it was no doubt due to Stan Lee's (creator of Spiderman) involvement in the creation of the movie itself. Peter Parker/Spidey was played out appropriately by Tobey Maguire, being the witty superhero and still maintain that boyish charm. Willem Dafoe was superb in his role as the neurotic Norman Osborn/Green Goblin as he lived up to that character really well. Kirsten Dunst was also great in her role as MJ Watson (Actually, I don't really care! She can act bad and I'll still like her! Hahaa!). The role of J. Jonah Jameson was also played out well by an actor whose name I don't know at this time of writing. Anyways, certainly a great movie and I can't wait for the DVD to come out. I give it a personal rating of 8.5/10. The jury is still out however as far as the best movie of the summer is concerned and I'm anxiously waiting for the third Austin Powers movie to be out in about a month or two before I can make some sort of judgment.

Norah Jones - Come Away With Me

22 May 2002 12:48

I was prompted to get this album after watching her perform onLate Show With David Letterman the other night. Certainly good to know that not all young female artists out there fall into the usual mould of bubblegum pop (e.g. Britney Spears) or angst rock (e.g. Alanis Morissette during her Jagged Little Pill phase). Norah's voice is surprisingly mature for her age of 22 and her songs mostly are of mellow and easy listening type that would be ideal for a lazy afternoon or late evening listening as well as those long drives on the highway. None of the stuff really sticks into your head (at least I reckon it to be after listening to it for a couple of days) but rather, it's the soothing nature of her songs that makes me wanna listen to it again. Overall, a good album from a promising artist! I'd give it a 8/10 rating.

Xfresh.com Gathering

19 May 2002 15:21

As mentioned in my entry last weekend, one of the things I like to do whenever time permits is to hang around with some people who are younger than I am (I'm beginning to sound like as if I'm really old now! : \). A lot of times, they amaze me with their creativity and mindset. I find conversing with them can be exhilarating at times, especially when they come up with ideas that you just simply overlook yourself or even don't even think of. Other than that, hanging around with them is just plain fun! So, in a break from my usual Saturday evening of nothing, I decided to hang around a bit with those people from Xfresh.com when they held a gathering at Mid-Valley. Finally managed to tie some names to faces (Hi Ed, Joanne, Alyaa, Maman, Diyana, Vince!). Heh! Funny that most people had the impression that I was 19 or something. Perhaps one day I oughtta try out putting on a school uniform and take off whatever facial hair I have and walk into a school and classroom. >:)

Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones

17 May 2002 17:20

Finally! After two years, Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones is finally launched worldwide! I was lucky enough to obtain free tickets to the 9:00pm show on opening night (courtesy of the company I work for). I can tell you that it's definitely much, much better than Episode I: The Phantom Menace as far as the actions and storyline goes. We finally get to see how some things seen in the later episodes actually form e.g. how Luke's Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru came into the picture, the origin of the Death Star's design and of course, Anakin's intimate relationship with Amidala which eventually led him to the Dark Side and subsequently the birth of Luke and Leia. However, the movie has its shortcomings too. Firstly, the dialog came on as too corny, and what's up with the Anakin and Amidala rolling down the meadows of Naboo ala Hindustan movie as well as that scene where Amidala was running up the hill ala Sound of Music? Was Lucas short of ideas for the romancing scenes? Still, the best part of the movie I reckon was the light sabre battle between Count Dooku and Yoda! It was worth waiting to see why Yoda is THE Jedi master! Also, Sam L. Jackson gets to strut some badassed Jedi attitude ala Shaft this time around (I want a purple light sabre too!). All in all, I'd give it an 8/10 rating.

I've really gotta watch Spiderman after this. I'm sure the ticket demand would be much less with people flocking to see Episode II now.

Schumacher-Barichello Wins, Ferrari Loses At F1

13 May 2002 15:09

Whoever thought lightning wouldn't strike twice at the same spot would have to think again as Michael Schumacher won the Austrian Grand Prix in a fashion not too different a year ago at the same circuit. Reubens Barichello was ordered to move over at the very last few meters of the race to make way for Schumacher, the current leader in the Formula One championship standings. While it may be forgivable last year since the race for the championship was closer, this time around it was totally unfair to the person who was clearly dominating the race throughout. Schumacher was gracious enough to hand the trophy to Barichello and even shove the latter to stand on the winner's podium place but still, it just leaves a bitter taste in the mouth to many people, Ferarri fans included. Barichello did try to play it down somewhat and understandably so as he just signed a new contract with Ferarri a couple of days ago that ensures him of his position with the team for another two years.

Race standings: 1 - Michael Schumacher (Ferrari), 2 - Reubens Barichello (Ferarri), 3 - Juan Pablo Montoya (Williams BMW), 4 - Ralf Schumacher (Williams BMW), 5 - Giancarlo Fisichella (Jordan Honda), 6 - David Coulthard (McLaren Mercedes)
