Anyway, here are some of the pictures that I took

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year 2008

Ho..Ho..Ho..Merry Christmas

Been out and about today. Went to do some grocery shopping and I totally forgot that the government staffs have received their bonus! I went to The Mall in Gadong and the basement parking was full!! So I have to find parking around The Mall! That area are always packed and full of cars trying to look for parking and lucky me, I manage to get one!!

Did my grocery shopping and good thing I have my friend with me to carry it for me! Just before going home I decide to stop by NBT to take some photos of the Christmas Decoration. I have been trying to take pictures of it but it rains almost everynight! Although I prefer to take night shots of the decoration but this time I decide to take it during the day before they dismantle it.

There are so many people around there! It is always been the most popular place during every festivity. Family of all races will go there and take pictures of the decoration. I managed to snap few photos of it.

What A Blast & Glittery Birthday

First of all, I would like to say Thank You so much to Hj. Salim, the owner of NRA Cafe, for organising a birthday party for me. I really do not know what was the program for that night so i just wait for all the surprises that they have planned. The member involved in this birthday party was Amoi, Joyce and Alin. The only thing that I was told is that I will be expecting 60 guests! I was so shocked to hear that..Never in my Birthday life that I have so many guest. I wonder who are the guests! Non of my bandar friends wanted to join the party as they were too shy to face all the guests..hehe

As I enter NRA Cafe, I was amazed and touched to see the effort they have put to decorate the cafe to such a beautiful place. There are balloons everywhere and even my name hanging over the wall.

The guests arrived around 7ish...and I hardly know some of the guests who were invited. And everyone who entered the cafe brought a present along with them for me! It really make me wonder though....so I asked Joyce about the invitation card that was sent to the guest which I never seen it. I opened one of the guests invitation card and i laughed! Look at the picture below and you will know why.....

Seriously, I do not know what was planned and don't even know what's the programme. All I know there will be singing, lucky draw and disco ^_^ The lucky draw bit was fun and the first number that was picked was my no.!! hehehe.. Prizes are really good too.

What surprises me was the part when Mr. Nik, the emcee talk a bit of my life history. Really didn't expect that coming and the embarrassing part was when he mentioned that I participated few singing competition and never won!! hahahahaha....It's true though..

Later I was asked to make a speech...gosh...I'm really bad with speech..

Around 10, it's time to disco! And guess what, I was asked to be the first to start the dance. I felt a bit uneasy with that and what makes it worst is that they started to play a dangdut song! hahaha...i just don't know how to dance dangdut...hehe...later everyone join in and we had lots of fun swinging those hips!!

There were prize presentation for:

Early Birds

Best Male Performer

Best Female Performer

The party finished just before 12am. It was an enjoyable and memorable birthday party! ... oh oh!! I forgot about something....The cutting of my birthday cake!! The lights were dimmed, cake came out with candles and everyone was singing. I blush easily and i do not know how red my face was at that time. When I saw the cake, I was speechless..I never ever had a cake that big and I never ever have so many people singing for me!

Once again, i sincerely would like to thank Hj Salim, the owner of NRA Restaurant and Karaoke Cafe  and also those involved for organising such a big birthday party for me. Really really appreciate it!

Wedding of Tony Chua & Yvonne Yong

Just got home after a long day of event for my brother's wedding.

I slept around 2 am yesterday and got up at 5 am as we need to leave the groom's place in Muara at 6am. It's a chinese tradition that the bride have to be at the groom's place between 10 am and 12pm. 

The bride live in KB, so that is the reason why we have to leave early. Leaving early is one thing, and we can't drive too fast too as we are worried that the wedding car's decoration might come off. Drove 100km/hr and man it take ages to arrive the bride's house.

We arrive the bride's place around 8am. As usual, the bride will be hiding in the room and when everything settle, the bride's parents will lead the daughter and handover their daughter to the groom. Tea ceremony is one of the most important event in Chinese wedding. This is to introduce their groom to the bride's family and also calling the bride's parents "Dad" and "Mom"

Once everything is done, we head back to Muara. There we had the tea ceremony too and group photos too. It was really an eventful day and tomorrow night will be the wedding banquet.

For The Sake of Fun

I received this forwarded email from a friend. You might have seen this before but I find it quite interesting. It is true how some Chinese people cannot pronounce 'R'. I am a chinese myself and sometimes I do get tongue twisted when it come to pronounce 'R'.....Enjoy...

One of the main reasons why in recent years the Singapore Government has always ensured that their Miss Universe representative were of tertiary level education or higher was because of the following incident which occurred not too many years ago. It is the final round of the Miss Universe Pageant and the 3 finalists, Miss USA , Miss Malaysia and Miss Singapore are being asked 4 simple questions:

The first question is name me an electrical appliance starting with "L"

Miss USA

Miss Malaysia
Light bulb

Miss Singapore

Judge: No, no, Radio does not start with the letter "L"

I am going to give you 3 more chances; Now, name me an animal starting with the letter "L"

Miss USA

Miss Malaysia

Miss Singapore

Judge: No, no, no!

Your next chance. The name of a famous car that starts with "L"

Miss USA

Miss Malaysia

Miss Singapore

Judge: Oh my God!

I am going to give you one last chance! Name me a fruit starting with the letter "L"

Miss USA

Miss Malaysia

With full of confidence, smiles and says:

Miss Singapore,

This is not the end of the story, the Judge consulted the board of judges to determine if Miss Singapore should really be disqualified ; and they decided that since Miss Singapore was having so many problems with the letter "L", they decided to give her another chance.

OK, the final question is : Name me a human anatomy starting with the letter "L"

Miss USA
Lung (applause)

Miss Malaysia
Liver (even more applause)

Miss Singapore

The Judges fainted..!!!
Note: For those who doesn't know what Lan Ciau mean..well...it's the male private part...hehe...

HP iPAQ rx5770 @ QQestore

Went to QQestore during lunch time to collect HP iPAQ rx5770...the one I have in my wishlist *wink*. Oh this PDA is for my brother-in-law. My sis asked me to get it for her..It's their 1st Anniversary. Checked the PDA and it really good :) Fast and very clear screen. Waited there for 30mins though cos I was waiting for my free gift, a 256 SD Memory card!

Finally the guy came to me and tell me that there is no more 256MB memory card in stock so he recommended me to upgrade to 1GB by paying the difference. I say "NO NO NO!..It's not my fault that you do not have a 256MB in stock..What if you upgrade it to 512MB for free!" He kept quiet and called the office. Finally he came back to me and gave me a 1GB Memory card. Hey..I asked for a 512MB and he gave me 1GB...what a lucky day! hehehe

Seriously...It's a good PDA. So if anyone of you out there who wish to buy me the PDA for my birthday or Xmas, please do so ... hehehe

Busy and Hectic Weekend

As my brother's wedding will be in a few days time, we have been really busy getting my parents' house clean and tidying up. The house is still in a mess as it is still under renovation and 95% is completed. Hope it will complete before the wedding day!!

Didn't have a proper meal during the weekend. All we had is takeaway. Mom too busy to cook, so I volunteer to buy food for lunch and dinner. We have Ayamku last night . Surprisingly the queue was long last nite and lots of customer do take away.

Tonight there will be another small feast at home but unfortunately I cannot have the food that will be serve. I am a vegetarian today....it's a long story...but being a buddhist, I am willing to do it :)

Car Accident Which Claim 2 Lives

This morning, I was trying to call a close friend of mine but can't get hold of him. That's not like him for not answering my call. So called him another hour later and still no answer. So I thought he might be busy with his work or attend a meeting.

Later he called me and told me that he was at one of his staffs fiance house. Wondering why..so i asked him jokingly "Bahapa kau kesana? Hantaran? Kan Kahwin?..hehehe.." He then told me that he attended his staff's fiance funeral. I was like..who passes away. His staff's fiance was in a car accident last night and pass away. It involve with 2 cars and the other car driver passed away too.

Was told that they just got engage and been talking about hantaran and so on. My friend see him regularly as he is always at the office to pick his fiance up for lunch and a nice guy too.

Although I do not know him but I do sympathise for his fiance, parents and friends.

So to those who read this, if you think you are a wreckless, ignorant and irresponsible motorist, please change now and avoid the lost of your life or someone's love ones. It is really difficult to lost someone you see everyday who is in good health and just leaves us for good in a blink of our eyes...because of car accident. . . .
