Waiting on the World to Change

"Available soon, features the album version of Waiting On The World To Change, plus a bonus acoustic version of the song featuring Ben Harper and the studio version of "Good Love Is On The Way." Oh, hey... Let's get to this. Good Love is not on the album, and though some of you may hear it and think it sounds perfectly CD-worthy, it just didn't match the tone of the entire CD. I've been around you all long enough to know that if it was on the disc you'd have said it shouldn't have been, anyway. You are all crazy. 600 and something reviews on iTunes? For a single? What was your last review, a candle?Making fun of your fans... Always a winning strategy." john mayer

*i cant wait. and, i've posted my cambodia pictures on multiple sites; yes, multiple sites and i've got nice compliments from frens. thank you all! xoxo

we celebrated carol's burfday in rakuzen a few weeks back, and, yes i've finally got the time to put the pics together and post it :p

the lunch buffet was excellent. the sashimi was so good (and fresh!) and the ambience was jus nice. not too noisy unlike some japanese buffet restaurant, and also there was no kiasu ppl piling up their plates with food they don't even knw how to pronounce it at the buffet spread or noisy kids running around like it is a playground.

all around the world ... and back

World News

MUMBAI, India (CNN) -- A series of seven explosions killed at least 174 people on crowded commuter trains and stations Tuesday evening in the Indian financial capital of Mumbai, police said. Officials said at least 464 people were injured in the blasts in the city's western suburbs as commuters made their way home. All seven blasts came within an 11-minute span, between 6:24 and 6:35 p.m. (12:54 and 1:05 p.m. GMT) more >

i think this is a cowardly act by the terrorists. targeting the poor who commute by train to the bustling city during peak hours is pathetic. just imagine you are in the train during that time and all you could think of is to get back home and be by your family. very sad news. i hope they catch the culprits, damn it.

A Bundle of Mystery (Yahoo news) -
The chatter on celeb gossip sites around the Web is growing louder and more intense. Even normally celeb-friendly US Magazine has waded into the fray and thoughtfully included a countdown clock on its front page. Yesterday, Hollywood-focused uncovered some official-looking paperwork. All are trying to answer one burning question—where in the world is Suri Cruise?

Searches on the unseen celeb offspring jumped 154% yesterday, as folks continued a vigilant search for information on the baby girl born to
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. The baby hasn't been spotted since she was born almost three months ago, inspiring many fruitless searches on "pictures of suri cruise" and "suri cruise photo." Curious searchers have been spurred on by the rampant rumors swirling online and are also turning to the Search box to ask "where is suri cruise" and more ominously, "does suri cruise exist." All of which is building towards a enormous burst of buzz when the first pics finally surface. Hmmm... could they have possibly planned such a publicity-generating stunt? Heavens, no!

here's one of the comments a reader had posted on the site:

i don't think that is shocking to know that Tom Cruise doesn't wanna show his baby. What happened was, he was just jealous that even when his baby was born before Shiloh Nouvel of the Jolie-Pitt bloodline, He was furious that people are so engrossed w/ the still coming Jolie-Pitt kiddo! He wanted pay back. And the longer he hides the baby, the higher the bid, the greater the thirst of the public eyes to see his offspring, the better it is for him. He is a hopeless man. He can hide his baby all he wants! In time, he will not get anything out of that, but doubt and people questioning his state of mind... Is he crazy? Who knows but Katie Holmes only? and who knows better?!

need i say more?

Tennis - So Nadal was beaten by Federer in Wimbledon (this is Federer's 4th straight Wimbledon win), and that my boss was and still relieved that her favourite beat the shits out of Nadal. but, really the champion in the court are the women's double Yan Zi and Zheng Jie from China. and no, i do not follow Wimbledon and not pretending that i am. i have got 'repeats' in the office broadcasted by none other than, yeap, u've guessed it, my boss. i think i'm beginning to like tennis and would really want to pursue it...someday.

Football - No comment. No butt joke. No chest pain. Nada.

i love this ...

Najib: I'll settle traffic fines

PUTRAJAYA (The Star) : Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak says he will settle unpaid traffic summonses issued under his name and called on other ministers with outstanding fines to do so. Najib was responding to a Malaysiakini article which said he and 24 other ministers had not paid the summonses for several years.
“I know about the article. I know I am at number five. I do not drive, it is others who do and I did not know about it. They also did not tell me. I will settle it,” he told reporters yesterday. According to Malaysiakini, Najib’s accumulated summons stood at RM7,820 for 67 fines.

don't you just love our DPM? he's the man! but, how come i do not see policemen handcuffing him like how they did to the poor 17 years-old who had 55 summons totalling to slightly less than what our DPM received? maybe, our DPM REALLY is CLUELESS what he has received.
And here’s a little tip to get you by in life:
To test avocados, mangoes, or papayas for ripeness, gently fondle the fruit — never squeeze it — and if the flesh yields to the touch, it's ready to eat.

Broad Way Ah Beng?

i received two invitations to watch the opening night of 'Broadway Ah Beng' from the nice people at Gardner and Wife in the Actors Studio, Bangsar recently.

i had anticipated to watch this stand up comedy/musical for months already since i spotted the poster at the 'Coming Soon' highlights at the Actors Studio. and, by anticipation, i mean, i had quite high expectations of the show.

ravenous expectations, if u must know.

sadly, like everything else in life, one should not have and do not have ravenous expectations of a certain something or someone cos more often than not, we will end up disappointed, which sometimes, can lead to aggression and violence. fck. where did that come from? too much football and football news. sorry but, i digress.

the show turned out to be light hearted and a little tame. i wasn't at all laughing my ass off, tearing, & asking for an encore. no. the last time i laughed a lot till i teared was when i watched 'Over the Hedge'.

to cut the long story short, the show was just alright. maybe it was 80% in hokkien, which i don't quite understand. eventho' ad understood hokkien, he didn't exactly had a ball that night. maybe we had curry for dinner. and, speaking of curry, we smelled durian not once but twice during the 1 and a half hour show! gosh for a moment i thought that was a gas leakage in the building. we deduced it was the uncle behind us who probably had durian for dinner and burped. yucks.

again, i digress. so, where was i... yeah, the show was mostly in hokkien. and, his 8 minutes spoof on 'Miss Saigon' was nothing but cheap thrill lah. i enjoyed Miss Saigon tremendously but for him to spoof it, i thought it was cheap especially when he plays the role of the General in the UK version of 'Miss Saigon' not so long ago. overall, i will give this show a 3 out of 5.

anyways, if you plan to watch the show, please make sure you understood hokkien cos if you do, you will definitely enjoy yourself (more). and stay away from durians before the show, please. or, curry for that matter.

Travel Light

Bullet train to Singapore: From KL in 90 minutes

YTL proposes RM8 billion high-speed train link.KUALA LUMPUR: Imagine zipping in a bullet train from the KL Sentral station into the heart of Singapore in 90 minutes flat. That is something that will become a reality if tycoon Tan Sri Francis Yeoh’s plan to build and operate such a train service at a cost of up to RM8 billion takes off.

Yeoh told the New Straits Times that the Malaysian and Singapore Governments had been informed of the proposal by YTL Corp for the fast train service.If approved, the project will become the largest to be launched on a private finance initiative (PFI) basis, as encouraged under the Ninth Malaysia Plan.

more on nst online

isn't this the most newsworthy news ever come out from out local dailies since ... since ... *scratching head* gee, i don't knw. since they saved the cub, nicki, from becoming herbal hot soup for the horny chinese men?

shoulda been done like 5 yrs ago, no? anyways, this is good news for the consumers, the retailers, and business ppl who travel back and forth to spore and vice versa. students will be very pleased, too. kudo to Datuk Yeoh.

and over to football (cheh, like i really dig football). but, seriously. up until now, the matches have been pretty unpredictable. who would've thought the German would lose to the Italians at last night's match? i heard from the radio djs on red fm, and they predicted the scores to be 2 - 0 and 2 - 1 to Germany. true, they are not football experts but i am pretty certain a lot of the people who banked on Germany did not expect them to lose. not on last night's match.

my prediction? nada.

my favourite? i quite dig zidane but i'd go for Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis over Zidane. we shall see. tonight's game will be fucking interesting.

fucking interesting

the devil wears red brief

I watched "Superman Returns" last weekend and i enjoyed it tremendously although it was a tad too long. i think that Brian Singer did a good job. there were quite a few "WHOAs", and "WAHs" in the cinema esp when Superman was dodging bullets... i thought that was quite hilarious. i guess most of the audience were there cos of the hype but not cos they are actually a fan of Superman. otherwise, they should not be surprised that Superman cannot be killed by multiple machine gun shots.

Brandon Routh, on the other hand, manages to live up to fans' expectations taking over the late Christopher Reeves role as Superman. in fact, he was brooding, and quite suave as Clark Kent although i have to say his features are a little "softer" as compared to Christopher Reeves. i guess it is cos of their age difference, too. to sum it up, it is worth the wait and worth the hype. go watch it if you have not and don't be surprised by how strong Superman is (and not compare him with Batman or Spiderman)

there are a few other movies that i am anticipating to watch: The Pirates of the Caribean - Dead Man's Chest, The Devil wears Prada starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway from the best selling book of the same name & My Super Ex-Girlfriend with Uma Thurman who is an X-girl ie superpower etc but also an emo wreck. i saw the trailer and it was dang funny!

on an unrelated note, i was over at Kuala Lumpur General Hospital (KLGH) in the city centre this afternoon to visit my baby niece who has been diagnosed for some blood-related illness (she was transfered from Sunway Hospital as recommended by the doctor). i have never been to KLGH in my life and my first visit to the hospital really shocked me. the hospital is quite run down, poorly managed car park (wait, i should say, non-managed car park), confusing signs or the lack of it, and definitely not patient-friendly. there were no security guards or traffic person present. imagine if there is an emergency during lunch time and there is a bottleneck at the exit/entrance of the hospital? i know there are a few exits/entrances but the roads are just too narrow!

KLGH is a public general hospital where lower income people seek for medical treatment here because it is a lot cheaper than other private company owned hospitals in Klang Valley. thus, it can be quite busy. in fact, it was pretty busy when i was there and the time that i had to spend to look for a car park can simply drive one person into road rage. fortunately, i bumped into my father and poor father was also lost cos it was his first time after almost a decade coming to KLGH. we managed to find the building...father was cursing in the car before he found me. cant blame him.

i find it really ironic that KLGH, the hospital run by the government, sandwiched between tall, big and beautiful buildings ie Istana Budaya, Institut Jantung Negara, KLCC etc is in a state that requires a complete overhaul in every aspects. i heard from father that they might move to Sg Buloh, which is approximately 30 - 45 minutes from the city. will it facilitates international standard medical facilities? is the car park properly managed? can the interns happily stay in the hospital to do their years instead of being stuck in the depressing state of the current KLGH? only time can tell. big leaders all over the country should act up and stop arguing who is right or wrong cos really, there are more important issues that the country need to sort out than just bickering.

better me better you

i have noticed. i have noticed recently that there is an emerging brand of "health products" in Klang Valley. and, it has become a successful direct marketing strategy drawn by one of those smart business persons just like the success stories that at one point of our life we all have heard from insurance companies, Amway, Cosway, Diamond water etc.

Herbalife. sounds familiar? kinda heard it from a friend or saw it somewhere? yes, it might be the car sticker on the back of the car that was in front of you this morning when you were on your way for breakfast. or, it could be one of your friends whom is taking the product/s and live to tell you the benefits it has given to him/her and how it has changed his/her life since. cliche, no? FYI, Herbalife markets weight management products among others (weight management products are supposedly their core products and their money-making products for the company).

no. i am not about to sell you any Herbalife products. neither am i goin' to start criticising it. i am not doin' any of the above. instead, i'd like to talk about Exercise.

Physical exercise, by definition of Wikipedia Encyclopedia, "is the performance of some activity in order to develop or maintain physical fitness and overall health. Exercises are generally grouped into three types depending on the overall effect they have on the human body:

According to research, frequent physical exericise is believed to prevent and cure major illnesses such as high blood pressure, heart diseases, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, imsonia and depression. And, exercise helps us to think and plan better by increasing the blood and oxygen flow to the brain. It also increases the growth factors that help creates new nerve cells and most importantly increase chemicals in the brain that help cognition.

point is, why rely solely on the consumption of products for weight management?

point is, do we even know for a fact that these products have done a breakthrough research and it is safe to consume it for weight lose? what will happened if we break out from it ie stop consuming it. can one still lose weight?

point is, physical exercise should be the way to weight management. proper diet should be the way to weight management. sufficient sleep/rest should be the way to weight management. not solely dependent on products in losing weight.

to quote Ron White from my previous post on the 3 Things we must do in our life, we must "exercise weekly in order to stimulate endorphins and maintain an energetic life. The exercise of walking to the kitchen or curling 12 ounces does not count as exercise."

He said, "I run 1 mile twice a week and 2-3 days a week do strength training. This is nothing difficult but it makes a major difference on my attitude."
