UPM Library !!!

Sleepy Monday of mine, stil sleepy til now even though it's already 11am something.

Got something 'stockbroking' talk by CIMB bank to us, wu huuuuu...its somehow compulsary for us to attend, and it cancelled my law class..well, i registered and took its note book, but took a detour to avoid attending it. Haha. Its not my field, sure very boring to me. Therefore, the detour and avoidance of mine should be worthwhile, but but but, that was a big detour route in order to avoid those organizers to see me running away...hehe

The route made me passing by the library..Oh yeah, it reminded me to have a glance in it again. Been more than 8 months in UPM, only once before we entered library. It was my second times in there. Again i want to say, UPM library is way way way way many miles better than UTM library. Don't know how UTM library won library awards before.

Here in UPM library, its so beau, neat and pretty comfy in its surrounding..Sorry guys, i can't be able to show much of its pictures. Everybody was so attentive in reading, playing laptops and so on, i was so arkward to snap pictures. Haha. I am already clueless on where to walk, where is this and that, plus still snap pictures here and there..It so shows me i am not local..haha.. hence, i was just touring around 15 mins only. Then leave with no objective. hehe.

If got chance, i will snap pictures to show it here. For me, its a nice and beau library, probably you may have seen better one at your place. Therefore, i dare not exaggerate how nice and pretty it is.

have a nice day.

One alone outing day -KLCC

A couple of years ago, i saw a dark cloud quietly moving over me.. i know its coming and may bring darkness in some sense of my life, but i cant be able to stop it. Then indeed it brought something to me..

and then it seems moved away, i thought things would get better it was seems recovering, but then it comes again..Bad things, unavoidable unhappy incidents but how? we stil have to go through no matter how as united.
The dark clouds appeared even thicker this couple weeks, it made me gloomy and feel helpless. I do not know how to involve and help but just seeing from far, wishing in mind so that it can be solved by them. Miss them and i do wish to meet them personally standing together with them, but i dont know why actually i am timid and dare not to face the incident. So i don't want to back !!
There, its my only off day on Wednesday in a week. With no internet connection at home, i decided to go outing a whole day only by myself. So i went to KLCC alone. A day to be alone, a day to relax in my personal way, a day to be quiet, a day to have a piece of mind. All rules set by myself. Its pretty nice and freedom too actually. Got myself some FRESHIER AIR..
My legs are long, therefore i always walk fast. but that day, i purposely slow down all my steps. Its so relaxed when you do not have any time constraint on anything. A lots of time, a lots of enegy. Haha. Usually when i reach Kl Sentral by komuter, i will be the one who walk so fast to get on the escalator and get faster to stuck in my ticket to the auto-gate to avoid crowd at the back, but that day, they all overtook, they all walk so fast and i was like slowly slowly enjoying my every steps. Haha. Being the last one of the group to get out through auto-gate is my FIRST time.
I have a lot of time, so i decided to take traditional way to BUS !!! whereby from KL Sentral can take LRT to KLCC with just only take around minutes away. But my whole bus journey took a long time plus a long waiting time for the bus. Standing downstair to wait bus made no boring to me, i was like observing every people who walked passing by me. All sorts of people rushing here and there. Taking bus would let me see interesting old old shops and people in KL city.
This one day alone outing of mine made me experienced many FIRST TIME events. Haha.

Bought myself a MacD lunch, sitting at Signature KLCC Food Court eating alone were my first time. Facing outside quietly eating the lunch, looking at the fountain outside can be fun too. Soooo many executives were there eating lunch too, luckily i got myself a good enough place to enjoy my lunch and my views.
Saw hundreds perhaps people wearing executives clothing all over KLCC expecially this lunch time. Dreaming and think again, if i could be like them wearing so suave and be one of the executive working in any of the company located nearby having lunch with whole bunch of my colleagues there or not. Economics so bad even until my graduation month. Perhaps hard to get a job then, but i believe it will not be a problem for us.

Watching movie alone that day was my another FIRST time too. First time going to cinema watching movie only by myself. What's even special to my record was, I FIRST TIME watch but not one movie, but two movie consecutively in a day ALONE. Haha. Am i really that bored? No actually, i just feel i had a lot of time, Its movie day, and i have many unwatched interesting movies to be watched.

Done some window shopping, got my size of favourite clothes, wear it in fitting room and imagine those will be mine !! Haha. KLCC has many branded shops rite? but i only dare to enter those not too branded only. Above pic was at Esprite (am i spelling correctly?) Almost RM100 piece of shirt, so expensive..

Walk and walk observing new fashions and people there. Stood by looking down at this location ( lift area). Nice views, so high.. Feel so moody, feel wanna jump DOWN !!!..Haha.. just kidding..

Going Kinokuniya was not my first time. Spent some times in there flipping books, mags and so on. Staring at those books in above pic, and i started to dream if i could go to those countries one day. Day dreaming time.

I actually never eat Burger King before, Its my another FIRST time now, first time eating Burger King and ALONE eating it. Haha. I dont even understand what a set meal consists of and soft drinks are sooo Free-FLow there. New experience got by myself alone. There was where my dinner was done.

Went outdoor to get some KLCC fresh air. Soooo many people sitting outside no matter in a pair, whole bunch of gang, single person like me and so on. Dont know what's so interesting out there but they just like sitting there outside even at the stair steps. Boringly me, also join the out there. Doing what? looking at the fountain...looking to those corporate buildings and hotels with nice logo and lightings.. looking to everyone who passed in front of me, looking on how they dress, how they walk and so on..Haha.. not to forget to look and stare at the well-reknowned KLCC Twin Tower up there.. Took some nice pics was a must. Maxis Tower at the side was not bad too.
Wondering if those lighted levels on that three towers actually still got people working in there. C'mon, it was 9pm already, they are stil working?

I even lied down on my back, thought want to count for the stars but unluckily NO STARS at all. Saw clouds !!!!!!..oh shit, those are dark clouds i mentioned.. It followed me whole day and even til KLCC, luckily KLCC's light was bright enough to expose them. Haha. I am crazy i know.
Been outside alone whole day 12 hours, Waisin ever asked me that night when i got home " Who have you talked to the whole day since you are alone?" I replied, i had talked to few phone calls, shop's sales assistants, bus drivers, a customer service people of KLCC, TGV people, MacD and Burger King people and so on. Haha. i still talked a lot that day but perhaps considered far lesser than what amount i supposed to say in usual.
Last picture above showed the dark clouds are stil everywhere, its true. Everyone may have dark clouds from time to time, i have mine too and i still having them now, probably thickening days by days. Therefore, we should better facing it with better mind and mood. Dont let it affect your nice days. Moody and sad in one day is good, take one more day to recover and be alone, then third day you must make sure you have got up steady, face your life with better mood and mind. Face up, use your whole energy to suck a deep breath, BLOWWWWWWWW the dark clouds away !!!!!..
Wish everyone able to blow your dark clouds and lead a happy life.
Phang !!!

IKEA Johor Bahru

Is there anybody do not know what above place is? I believe Ikea is a well known name mostly by people who live in Selangor and KL people. For me, it is STILL a fun place where i think its like a big playground, displaying so many nice and beautiful things. More over, its not very cheap but it may look classy at one time. Still feel excited and fun shopping in Ikea now. I used 'still' in above sentenses because, probably many nearby people also got sicked and bored with IKEA. I just been there few times, so I 'still' excited and happy with it. Haha.
However, such a big big Malaysia, we only have one IKEA. But a small small yet great Singapore, it has two IKEA. Hmm, is that Malaysia market is not big enough to gain interest for IKEA to open more in Malaysia?

Well, Im a Johorean. Many years ago, probably few years after Johor Bahru largest Jusco opened at Tebrau City, many speculations and rumours from many people saying that IKEA is opening in JB and it will be located next top Jusco Tebrau City. WOw! isnt that a big news for JB people and it will bring up that area into higher popularity after Jusco Tebrau City.
But wait and wait, wait and wait for that IKEA in rumour to come true, but it seems no movement at the land nearby the Jusco. But suddenly, the empty land next to Jusco Tebrau City started being build with something, I thought it was IKEA, but its actually TESCO. Weird weird. So, where's IKEA? Haha. I just heard it will be at another side of Jusco but til just now i stil blur where it is going to be.

Now, let me tell all of you in case you all do not know. Now only i know the exact location of the potential IKEA. Haha.

The square box on top will be the location of IKEA Johor Bahru. Hmm, which means that IKEA is really coming to JB !!! The yellow part is Jusco Tebrau City and its left side is the TESCO.

This is the landscape design of the new IKEA in Johor Bahru.

Little that i know from wikimapia , Ikano Group had bought that 36.94-acre land with RM 64.4m cash( RM40 per square feet) in mid-2007. That piece of land is for IKEA retail with an estimated built-up area of 280, 000 square feet which should be ready by year 2009/10. Well, it will be slightly smaller than IKEA Damansara (344,445 sq ft).

But, its already 2009, anyone live around there seen any changes to the land over there? Haha. I think its in the progress. About the completion date, some material said on 2012, some material called it IKEA Tebrau City. Hmm, lets wait and see what it is going to be and when it is going to finish.

Let's hope IKEA in Johor Bahru will be able to give some fresh air and market to JB people, probably for Singaporean who may think buying IKEA products in JB will be cheaper than IKEA in Sg. Haha. Now you know where is the exact location of new IKEA, so when there is people asking you, you may know how to answer especially JOHOR BAHRU PEOPLE !!

Phang !!!

Carl's Jr..Wonderful Eating..

The same day i went out for the fame Slumdog Millionaire with JunLan, we both daringly eat at this somewhat famous restaurant also which is just few steps away from MidValley GSC cinema. Haha. Its Carls Jr.

Actually this restaurant, i have been wanting to try eat it, but few times i stood by in front of the restaurant, my friend and i will walk away. Its too expensive, but at the same time the burger is HUGE !!..its real huge.. cheapest set would be around Rm18, expensive one would be almost RM23 to RM24 without tax !!..expensive right if compare to MacD any set meals?

To be frankly, its my first time but Junlan's second time actually. I had said to her we should dinner at Carl's Jr. even when we were at home, yet to depart. Haha. I heard its so nice, my objectives for that day were Slumdog Millionaire and Carl's Jr. Both long waited but came true. Thanks Junlan for accompanying me.

After long thinking at the counter, finally anyhow pick one set meal for myself. Paid a big amount of money, guess what i get? Haha. Its on pic above. An empty cup and a tag. So simple right? we would get freeflow soft drinks and ice lemon tea as well. So, if not give empty cup, then what to give? Haha..

What else can i do while waiting for my set?.. Haha. what else if not taking pics !!! She's the lovely JunLan who were my gf for that day. Why i said she was my gf for that day?

Haha, its because we were the same or almost same design of shirt. How to say these shirt is? Checked shirt? Straight lines shirt? horizontal and vertical lines shirt? What ever !! haha..

The served my set meal pretty fast. I said already the burgers there were and are HUGE.. You can compare it with my face and my palm.

The fries was so nice too. Kind of different taste compare to other fries you may eaten before. Don't believe? Try it yourself but i do not guarantee !! Haha

Junlan's set. You see, its huge till really almost covered whole Junlan's face. Initially, i thought Junlan will not able to finish it by her own but impressively with her small stomach and body, she actually ate them whole. That's very good. Her mum should be very happy to hear this.

Junlan's whole set looks like this. But i do not know what's the name. Something mushroom, something beef. You may see it easily on the menu if you go there. It has a big picture on the wall menu. Junlan's comment on that burger ---> Teriyaki burger tasted nicer !!

This is mine.. Haha. I know my burger's name. Its Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger®. Its nice enough for me. Tasted some burger that has different taste compare to Ramlee's burgers, MacD's Double Cheese Burger and Big Mac. Whispering to you all now, the price for my set was RM 24 include tax while Junlan's set was Rm 25 include tax. Haha. its expensive right?
Its pretty thick too. Munch munch. Im kinda need to open my mouth as wide as possible to munch or bite from top to bottom. Too bad, Junlan was not able to do so. Her mouth is too tiny. From the picture above, the real burger may look vary compare to menu, Haha you should know. But it really made me full.

At the mean time i was eating, i came across this part of the logo and tagline. I do not know if that is it's real tagline, but i found it actually interesting. Its gonna be messy !! Its somewhat true...


Stil not messy enough?

Haha. My area was messier than Junlan's area.
In conclusion, i had my expensive yet nice dinner with Junlan at Carl's Jr. In addition, watched a nice movie too. What's not good enough? We were too keen to eat and talk at there, taken out too much of the allocated shopping time. Pity Junlan didn't shop enough that night. Haha.
Phang *who wants to be happier*

Slumpdog Millionaire : Movie Review

Today watched a great movie with Junlan. I am the one who actually introduced Junlan about this movie. At last we both have the chance to watch it with a curious heart about how great it was and question is mind ' Is it really that good?'

At the end, we both totally agree this movie is veryyy good. Thumbs Up. If i have third tumbs on my hands, i will show it to you too.

If you guys have not watch it, here is some small part of its summary but i wont tell much. You have to watch it yourself. I dont want to be spoiler at here though.

"Slumdog Millionaire is the story of Jamal Malik (Patel), an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation watching, he is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India¹s "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?"

This movie is about how's the life of slump people in India live. These poor little starving kids and slump people really eke out their life to live on in that veryyyyyyyyyyy terrible place. However, kids are kids, they are all too naive and never know those life are bad. That's better. I just feel that we are Malaysian should be grateful to what we have. I do not know if any Malaysian who had live for decades in Condominium, Apartments and Bungalows will able to survive in those slumps area like they do.

For those who do not know about this film, then you should know it.

This movie had :
  1. Nominated for ten Academy Awards in 2009 and won eight. (Oscars Award)
  2. won five Critics' Choice Awards
  3. four Golden Globes
  4. seven BAFTA Awards, including Best Film
  5. There are more. If you keen to know, click here

Little trivia for you all, you may not know too.

  1. Mercedes-Benz asked that its logos be removed in scenes taking place in the slums. The company, according to Danny Boyle, did not want to be associated with the poverty-stricken area, fearing that that might taint its image.
  2. Director Danny Boyle placed the money to be paid to the 3 lead child actors in a trust that is to be released to them upon their completion of grade school at 16 years of age. The production company has set up for an auto-rikshaw driver to take the kids to school everyday until they are 16 years old.
  3. The children on the film were only paid a little above local wages for 30 days of work. One child's father said, "We have barely got any money from the film-makers. In fact, whatever came, has already been spent."
  4. The pile of excreta that the young Jamal jumps into and was made from a combination of peanut butter and chocolate.
  5. The female lead actress you can see above picture, is potential to be the next Bond Girl. She's great huh. You know what, her competitor to grab this role is Jennifer Aniston. Tough competition huh.

In general, this is a worth movie to be watched. Me and Junlan felt its nice from the beginning til the end. You may cry too for some girls. I felt its pretty interesting movie, no wonder it won so much awards. Good job !!!

Go grab you handphone or get into your msn. Find and date someone, book the movie ticket at nearest cinema. Watch it !!!!!!!!.........

Busy Weekend Ends !!

What a soooooooooooo busy weekend i had..finally it ends today and now... Many of my friends asked me about how am i spending my long weekend, but i can only to say 'I have to work".. Pity me..!!! everyone must be having so much fun out there..

So, what had i done for my long weekend from Sat to today Monday? Well, for your info, I am working at Macy Home Furnishings.

Its our BIGGEST end season sales EVER...haha..Its a big sales actually, therefore there are a lottttttttt of people coming. The sales was pretty good. For my 3 days working, i had been Running, Pulling rolled fabrics, Talking, Carrying Rolled Fabrics, calculating, explaining, writing and sooo on. Hmm, very busy indeed. We have many last roll fabrics and defect fabrics being sold at only Rm 5 to 15 per meter. Those fabrics originally were not cheap, all at least RM40 per meter. It became so cheap, quality was not very bad too. That's why people were crowding to MAcy.

"Excuse me, how much is this fabric?" " What is this fabric?" " What mean day curtain? then what is night curtain?" "I tell you hah, my window is like this, lebih kurang 6 feet width, 7 feet height, calculate for me? What else cheap one?" "How much do i need for my 3 panel window?" " what mean Double width, what mean single width?" "Eh boy, ni berapa ni?" "Leng zai leng zai, come come help me !!" "Lengzai, lei ko, kei to lui" all sort of language and questions..haha..

Haha. No matter what language, i can only answered with english, chinese and malay. In fact, many chinese customers thought i am a malay and speak malay to me. Haha. It has become common for me. Luckily i had been trained i little on how to calculate and product knowledge, that is what a job or a work is somehow fun because im able to serve and answer every question. Thus, customers happy. Its busy, but i feel enjoyed too. 3 days war ended. Starting i work at 11am, its non-stop hearing those questions, then i assisted and i talked and i pulled, and measured and cut cut cut those fabrics.

I have only one hour of break, where i wont be talk much, but to rest my mouth to eat during dinner, my butt to seat and my legs to relax. One hour finished, back to war. Haha. 8 hours in total of war times 3 days. Pretty fun.

Thats all my tiring yet enjoyable long weekend. Wish all of you had fun during this long weekend. My new trimester starts tomorrow. Wish everything goes well.
