How Can You Make A Difference?

Have you been to Gadong Mall lately? Do you know that they have World Water Day Exhibition there? So if you haven't been there, please do go there now! Bring your children there! There are prizes to be won!

Anyway, I was there manning our booth on Sunday morning and surprisingly there are many people flocking to the exhibition despite the opening of Giant at Tasek Rimba. Manning the booth can be fun at times when you can see all walks of life at the mall! The boring time was when you get bored of looking at the same people passing by the booth..hehe..., so I decide to walk around and the first thing that caught my eyes was the pole wrap with a PVC material which look like the picture below, so that the public can write their pledge...A creative idea...don't you think so?

I look around the pole and giggle while reading some of the message that was written. There are few good pledges and lots of weird pledges!! Let me show you the good pledge first ^_^

Now the weird and cruel bit...

There are more to it but I have to censored it..hehe...

Beside all that, there were drawing exhibition too. FYI, I am the type of person who are amazed with small little things. The drawings that were displayed really amazed me. They are the drawings from our young and the future generation who will bring good name to our country and their family! I wish I can draw as good as them. Here are some of the drawings...

The exhibition will be open to public until 26 March 2008. Some of the booths might not be manned at night but please feel free to wander around. If you find any freebies on the table, just grab it ^_^

This Is What Happen...

I was driving along the highway along the airport (don't know what's the highway name) going to Menglait to send off an invoice to our client.

Driving along and then saw a long queue of traffic. Wonder what happen...but for sure the first thing that came to my mind is "NOT ANOTHER CAR ACCIDENT!" So while driving slowly at a turtle speed, i took some photos of my slow journey to Menglait...

The Queue!
Yeah...a pic of the lamp post..hehe

A red car infront of me..opss..forget to censor the no! Gosh the windscreen is so dirty!

Look at that tyre rim! Nice colour..hehe

Queue behind me!

Look at the speed i'm driving!
.'s true..another accident! Popular place for things like this!!

Biarkan Tia Bah!

I have a joke to share with you. Received an email from a friend and I find it so funny and thought of sharing it with you. I have edited it to Brunei Malay to make it sound local....hehe...

Suatu hari, sebuah bas kilang yang memuatkan pekerja wanita sahaja sedang menuju ke kilang kayu yang terletak jauh dari kawasan kampung. Dalam perjalanan tu..mereka terpaksa melalui kebun buah yang sangat luas..

Nak di jadikan cerita..ada tia seorang lelaki disiring jalan menahan bas atu..kan tumpang lah tu....jadi bas atu pun beranti lah... Tiba tiba ada tia 6 orang perompak keluar nak merompak bas atu...

Perompak atu berkata..

" Keluarkan dan bagi semua amas-amasan yang kamu ada ah..!!LAJU..!!"

Pekerja kilang atu membalas..

" ..tapi..kami ani mana ada bawa amas-amasan kalau kan kerja..usin inda banyak..."

Perompak atu pun berfikir...

"Bah! Mun inda..camani tah..oleh sebab kamu ani nada amas-amasan & usin..kami rogol kamu SEMUA..hahahhaa.."

Pekerja kilang yang muda berkata..

" Paloi kali!!...inda kan makcik yang duduk di belakang atu kau kan rogol..inda kau kesian kah?!.."

Makcik atu pun berdiri..

" Eh Dang!..kau ani tah!..inda kau paham kah..kalau bisdia cakap SEMUA..biar tia SEMUA la..!!"

Confused Saturday Night

Last night we went to Berry Wan Hotpot and the place was fully packed. And lucky enough we have booked a table for 6 in advance. So we went in and asked for our seat. The waiter told us that our seat have been taken. I was so furious when I heard that! All my friends are from KB and it is quite frustrating for them! Later we were told by the owner that the seat was booked for us but there was one family that didn't bother to listen to the waiter and sat down. That even make me more angrier! Don't this family understand the word "reserved" or even "booked"? This are one of the most annoying people that we can find in Brunei!

We waited outside the restaurant and I just stared at that family who took our table and hoping it will make them uncomfortable eating....but Noooooo...they even enjoy it more! We waited for 30mins for another customer to leave the restaurant. The owner was apologetic but we never blame them.

Anyway, forget about the drama above..let's talk about the food. When I first look at the choice of the foods at the counter, I was amazed with it. We had chicken soup and tom yam soup for our hotpot :) We put as much as we can in the pot and the food taste so good :) I feel so blotted after we finish all the food in the pot otherwise we will get charged $5.00 for 100g of wastage food. hehe..

Now I know why this place is so popular and required to book a table before you go there. I would recommend you to have a try to this restaurant. Book early and be there early if possible before someone irresponsible take over your seat!

Rating : 7/10

Here is how you can contact them:

After dinner, we went to SQC to catch a movie. It's been awhile since I have been to the cinema and this is my first time to SQC. My friends from KB wanted to watch 10,000 BC. I have seen the movie trailer and look quite interesting. We watched the 22:30 movie.

I was quite confused with the movie. What is the motive of the movie? What does it have to do with the title of the movie? As far as I can understand is that a primitive man who keep his promise to the girl that she love since at young age. And when they grew up, they still love each other and one day the girl that he loved was kidnapped by their rival. So this man is trying to save his gf and walk from one end of the other end to find the gf. At the end of the story, he manage to save the gf but was killed later by the guy who kidnapped her and back to life again. hehehe...And at the end of the story the couple kiss so passionately....I wonder to myself, does people at that time kiss like that? hehe...

Gosh...I have been so lazy for the past few days. It's not that I don't want to do anything, it's just that I have nothing to do! Bored to death. And also the weather is not promising either at night.

Let me see what were the productive things (beside my job..hehehe) that I have done for the past 4 days:

  • Bought myself a PSP Slim on Monday
  • Browsing through the internet for FREE PSP Games ... found it ..Wuuhuuuu
  • Installing game to my PSP..Copy and erase games from my memory stick. I'm sure it won't last that long if I continue copy and erasing games from it..hehe
  • Browsing the net for walkthrough and cheats for my Silent Hill and Tom Raider games..hehe

  • Went for body massage at Pearl last night where I totally doze off and start snoring! How embarassing..hehe
Wow...after listing that, I feel like a computer geek!! Seriously I'm not! lol

So anyone who own a PSP, share share lah what game you have... ^_^

Guess Who I Met?

I had lunch at d Other Office with a friend of mine. As always, I will ask my friend to miscall me when he arrived to the restaurant. Got there and my friend was asking me

"What's wrong with your phone kan?"

I was blur blur and answered

"OK jua bah"

Then he say..

"Balik balik ku call but can't get through!"

What's wrong with DST for this past few days? Is everything ok, DST? I was trying to surf the internet using my phone and have problem getting into it. While deciding what to order...a sms came in and it was from my friend who sends the sms like 10mins ago! hehe

Anyway, my friend told me that the two customers that were sitting next to the windows weren't happy and left the restaurant. Apparently, they have order their food like an hour ago and nothing arrived on their table. Hmmmm....not good eh....

Don't you feel that the weather is hot? For me it is, so I decide to get Ice Tea which comes with my Lontong Special. Really refreshing....

Then came a customer sitting on the same table of the frustrated customers who have just left. This person looks really familiar....hmmm.... and as he turn his back on me and saw his shirt, no doubt he is .......

Then later, came another guy into the restaurant and he is no other than ......

Let the blurry picture make you guess who they are ^_^

I was a bit disappointed with the food today. The Lontong Special that we ordered was not hot. It's warm and close to cold already. We were wondering if that's the food that the frustrated customers ordered and later serve it to us! hmmmm....but don't think they will do that...I hope

Banana Fritters

Look yummy isn't it? I shouldn't have post this early in the morning! Making me hungry now :(

Anyway, the reason why I posted that picture is because of a forward email from a colleague of mine. This happen in few states in West Malaysia. I'm not sure how true it is, but you might think twice of buying banana fritters now...hehe...


"This is a TRUE STORY ... and also Saw Loon told me it happened to her place at Kedah ..Tunjang..I think..

It happened in PERLIS ( Titi Chai Kangar, the pasar malam area where PISANG GORENG (Banana Fritters) are sold in the afternoon)

Mom said, my uncle saw the PISANG GORENG hawker added plastic straw ( drinking straw ) into hot oil and leave it to melt before he fried the banana, that is why PISANG GORENG, UBI, etc stay crispy for hours....

My uncle asked the hawker and he kept quite. When my uncle told my mom, they realized that this is how fried fritters stay crispy for a while. My mom said that in Thailand they do the same to keep the fried food crispy eg: ikan bilis, fried onions, etc which will stay crispy although it is left in the open air for hours.

Here's another one:

I was with my family in Cameron Highlands. It was 3 pm and we were hanging around a market area. We saw many hawker stalls, suddenly something attracted my attention at one of the stalls. There was a big wok of boiling oil with a half-5-litre empty oil bottle in it. The plastic bottle melted slowly in the hot oil.

At first I thought it was an unintentional act by a 7-yr-old girl but when I looked closely, I saw she was holding a pair of chopsticks and stir the bottle. It appears the act was intentional. Oh My God, these people are using melted plastic to fry food. so that the tit bits will not go soft when it cooled due to plastic.


So what do you think? Do you believe it? If anyone of you willing to try it, please do let me know. If it really work, then we have to becareful of what we eat...SCARY!

Car Wash Anyone?

Yesterday, I was at my parents around 5pm and it started to drizzle and eventually raining cats and dogs. Waited till 6.30pm and the rain didn't stop. So decide to drive back home. On my way home, some part of the road at Jln Muara started to flood. Some silly motorist just didn't bother to slow down and splash the muddy water onto other cars including mine. And the sad bit was those who were walking along the road. They have no umbrella or rain coat!

Normally I will take Jln Beribi Lama to head home .. just to avoid the traffic. As I was driving along that road, I passes 3 area that's flooded and when I was about to get to the other end of the road, it was flooded and my car can't drive through! Look at the photos and you will know why! So I have to turn back and drove all the way and use the other road.

That poor indian shop was flooded!!...well at least that will chase the rats away! hehe

I Really Didn't Expect It......

I was at Hua Ho Manggis Mall yesterday accompanying my friend to buy some lucky draw gifts for their Company's Annual Dinner.

So we went through few electrical goods. Look at vacuum cleaner, DVD player, Air Cooler and also TV. I was quite surprise to see the price of the TV. It's reasonably cheap...great offer. My friend decide to get a Sony Bravia 20-Inch LCD TV for the Grand Lucky Draw prize. The TV only cost B$699 compare to one of the popular e-store which cost B$758.

I went through all the TV and one of the TV really caught my eyes. It's Sony Bravia 32-Inch LCD TV ( KLV-32V300A) which cost $1399. I really find it is really a good bargain. Knowing Hua Ho accept 0% Instalment with no processing charges, I finally decide to get the TV! Never cross my mind that I will buy a LCD TV so soon. I always wanted one but never thought it was yesterday. The store assistant asked me if I want the TV delivered to my place the next day and instantly I say NO! hehehe... I'm very impatient when it come to play with my new gadget!

Just after I bought the TV, a friend of mine invite me to play volleyball! My mind was thinking...should I go or should I not?! Strange enough I decide to play volleyball instead! When I got home, I push the TV to my room and my sister and bro-in law saw it and shouted " HE BOUGHT A NEW TV!!" They thought that I will put it in the living room...with my smiling face, i told them "YOU WISH!" ...

After the sport, I went back home and quickly take the TV out of the box and install it! Played with it till 1am! hehe....and that's why I look so tired and sleepy this morning. I just realise just now that my TV have Pic-Pic function! Can't wait to try that out..hehe... I need to get HDMI cable too for my Mini Mac which I will connect to my TV. Can't wait to try all this thing out.. and what makes me happy today is that the price at the e-store is B$1,985.00. It's few hundred difference from mine! So anyone who is interested in getting new TV, go to Hua Ho Manggis Mall before the offer ends.

Here is a look of the TV
