Upon her return, her father berated her; " Where have you been all this time, you ingrate! Why didn't you rite us, not even a line to let us know how you were doing? Why didn't you call? You little tramp! Don't you now what you put your Mum through??!!" The girl, crying, replied, "Sniff, snif... Dad... I became a prostitute..."
"WHAT!!? Out of here, you shameless harlot! Sinner! You're a disgrace to this family - I don't ever want to see you again!"
"OK, Dad - as you wish. I just came back to give Mom this luxury fur coat, title deeds to a ten bedroom mansion, plus a savings account certificate for £5 million. For my little brother, this gold Rolex and for you, Daddy, the brand new Mercedes limited edition convertible that's parked outside plus a lifetime membership to the Country Club...(takes a breath)...an invitation for you all to spend New Years' Eve on board my new yacht in the Riviera, and...."
"Now what was it you said you had become?"
The girl, crying again said, "a prostitute, Daddy!"
"Oh! Sweet Jesus! You scared me half to death, girl! I thought you said "a Protestant". Come here and give your old man a hug!

Congratulations DKBU, you are...
minishorts of minishorts.net
You are outgoing, direct, smart, pretty, and a definite go-getter. You are frank, a little too frank perhaps that sometimes you get on people's nerves and make them very upset. If people attack you, you hit back with triple the force without blinking because you are the kind of person who knows exactly what you are talking about or else you wouldn't talk about it. Your quick-thinking is what makes you special. You are an elitist.
Congratulations DKBU, you are...
Cowboy Caleb of cowboycaleb.liquidblade.com
You are smart, loyal and sensitive. You are also very caring towards other people and you help them out whenever you can. You are very passionate about your line of work. You fight for your beliefs and if someone doesn't agree with you, you argue your point of view across in a very convincing yet diplomatic manner. For that, you earn respect.

Andy Rooney says:
As I grow in age, I value women who are over 30 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:
A woman over 30 will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, "What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think.
If a woman over 30 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it's usually something more interesting.
A woman over 30 knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of 30 give a hoot what you might think about her or what she's doing.
Women over 30 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.
Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated.
A woman over 30 has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn't trust the guy with other women.
Women over 30 couldn't care less if you're attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won't betray her.
Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 30. They always know.
A woman over 30 looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 30 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.
Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a
jerk if you are acting like one! You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.
Yes, we praise women over 30 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of 30+, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year-old
Ladies, I apologise.
For all those men who say, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free". Here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage, why? Because women realise it's not worth buying an entire Pig, just to get a little sausage.

5 years after the group stopped activities, two member group Clon (Kang Won Rae and Goo Joon Yup) will reunite to release their 5th album.
Best known for their song "Goong Dari Shabara", the group was hit with a hard blow when Kang Won Rae was involved in a motorcycle accident which paralyzed him from the waist down. The accident happened in the midst of their 4th album performances and thus stopped any more planned activity.
Kang Won Rae has continued his work in the entertainment business as tv host as well as Radio DJ on KBS2 with the "Kang Won Rae and No Hyun Hee Music Talk" Show. He even married his girlfriend after the accident.
The title track of the new album will be "To Song Ee" and is scheduled for a July release with live performances to follow.

Was at the Rotaract cheque presentation event. We managed to collect about RM20k for the WTYS project from the treasure hunt, the foot massage and donation from the public. Below is the report from the Organizing Chairperson.
The mock cheque presentation
The food served after the presentation
Windows To Your Soul Cheque Presentation ceremony
Report by Kavita Sukanandan
Every minute a child loses his or her sight. Loses the chance to see the brilliant colors of a comic book, the rainbows in the sky, enjoy sunsets & the twinkling stars...
With this in mind, we embarked on Project Windows To Your Soul - to raise funds towards the vision care of underpriviledged kids. Starting in December on one raining evening with a seemingly impossible target of RM20K, we are proud to have come this far with the same energy, enthusiasm and commitment that we started out with. And of course, we are proud to say......
We surpassed our target and achieved RM26,081.53 which we happily passed on to Dato Dr Veera Ramani, medical coordinator of Tun Hussein Onn National Eye Hospital and vice president of Malaysian Association of the Blind in a historic cheque presentation ceremony today!! All the funds collected will go to the setting up of the new MAB&THONEH centre in Kota Bharu, Kelantan where it will be used for kids with vision problems/ educating blind kids. :) woo hoo, feels good after all the late nights, chicken rice and sweat pouring...
After the cheque presentation, we headed over to Irene's house for house warming party. We had BBQ! We were using the same stove as in Sg. Congkak =P~ Aiya Irene didn't prepare enough food leh. So some of the girls went out to tapao some food.
BBQ at Irene's house
The food the girls tapao
Anyways after all the food. The girls were sitting together, chit chatting and laughing. The guys were eating and eating =P~~~
Later, we played the "Honey, honey, will you marry me?" game. Err... didn't like it. Next we played the untangling game. The game was not bad, we got tangled and untangled but in the end, we end up untangling into 2 circles (suppose to be one circle). Then we played the "Heart Attack" game. Damm fun woi this game, but this time it was a little crowded (too many players).
After all the games, it was time to celebrate Michael's Be-early Birthday (the actual day is tomorrow 15/05/2005). As usual we sang him a Happy Birthday song and the Birthday song ala Rotaract style. No cake for him too, just a candle =P~
Later, we adjourned to Tanjung Mamak Bistro for some supper. We left the place at 1am.
Supper at Tanjung Mamak Bistro
15/05/2005 - Sunday
Cath invited us to her house for Steamboat and to have a WTYS post mortem meeting. We were suppose to start 6pm but you know lar Malaysian time. Dinner started at 7:30pm =P~
This is the my first time eating steamboat from rice cooker! Walaueh... it cooks really slow. But at least the soup was great. Thanks to Cath for making the delicious Tom Yam soup and Kavi for making the Chicken and Vege soup. Mmm... Delicious!
Tom Yam Steamboat - Yummy =P~~~
Since everyone has to wait so long for the second round, we just took out our handphone for display (aka Nothing Better To Do). Guess what? Almost everyone uses Nokia phones.
After the dinner, we have WTYS post mortem meeting. The meeting lasted about 2 hours. After that, some of the guys appeared with a Tiramisu cake. It's time to celebrate Michael's Birthday again. Aiya, they also celebrated my birthday again (they celebrated my birthday last week). Am speechless. So as usual they sang the Birthday Song ala Rotaract style. Always say 'That I'm no use at all'. That's a lousy song lar =P Anyways, thanks guys!
Tiramisu Cake... Mmm... Slurps...
Caught this pic outside Cath's balcony
After the Birthday celebration, we cleaned up and left Cath's place. Overall, we had a great and wonderful time =)

Have visited Japan in 2001. Well it was a short trip (about 5 days) but it was enjoyable. Visited Kansai Airport, Kyoto, pass by Mount Fuji, Mount Hakone, Yokohama and finally Tokyo. It was great to see the that Japan is so advance and yet have many beautiful landscapes.
The Japanese culture is so different from Malaysia. Whenever we enter a shop, every worker would greet us with a smile and bow to us including the boss. Walaueh... where to get such service in Malaysia?
Also, in the morning, everyone will be rushing to work. Wah! All the guys would be wearing a coat and tie while the ladies wore stokings and high heels running and rushing to their office! Respect! You'll never see something like this in Malaysia.
We also tried out the Shinkansen (bullet train) and it's really really fast (faster than ERL a lot) and it's a smooth ride all the way. Cun~
Nihon tabemono wa taihen ooishi desu! Tried their sushi, ramen, miso soup, Japanese shabu-shabu (steamboat), Japanese BBQ and etc... Yummy =P~~~
I can go on and on about Japan.... But if you ask me if I would love to go Japan again, I would! Definitely! But there's a problem. Everything in Japan is expensive lar. Anyone wanna sponsor me to Japan =P~
Anyways, if you guys get a chance, you guys should go and visit Japan!
Fast forward to 2005, since Daniel san, Desmond san and myself is interested in learning Japanese, we enrolled together for the class in ICLS. That's where we ended up at =P
The class was fun and enjoyable with a taihen omoshiroi (interesting) sense. Well Fujiwara sense will be going back to Japan very soon. So this coming Sunday, Fujiwara sense has invited us (the whole class) to her house for a party and try out some Japanese food... Ooo... Can't wait... =P~~~
After the party, we'll be sitting for our exam on Monday. So good luck everyone! Ganbatte ne!

Since a child, I've never liked watching action pack movies, violence, war.. oh whatever.. it is just not my kind of movie...
Being beat up is not fun, and neither beating up someone is fun. Fight will bring nothing else but hurt.
Since I get to know him, and the kind of person he's mixing with, I constantly remind him not to get involved in any fight. I believe there'll always be solution for anything, there's no need to engaged in a fight.
Why must he reacted that way? Must you hit up someone else just to prove your love and care for your lover? Does this means I have to hit up all the girls in this whole wide world because I love you with all my heart?
Violence puts everything to an end. Sorry but I just can't forget what I see...
Words can heal, and words can bring harm too. It is important for you to control the words no matter how angry you are. Couple of years ago, I used to be someone who is VERY bad tempered, and even when chatting online, I get furious and started scolding people, like as if I care about how they felt. Later after that, I tell myself, being vulgar is not everything and I really have to change.
If I can change, why can't he change?
Getting scolded like a dog on the street with heavy traffic and a lot of people nearby there is not fun. I felt so ashamed, and what's more.. I did not do anything wrong. Where is your conscience? Can't you think rationally?
Everything I had about how nice a rainbow is went down into the drain and all my feelings shattered the moment you scolded me a bitch. If I am a bitch, what made you to fall in love with a bitch? There are loads more of the F words that you used on me, I am just truely disappointed, because I believe I was not born to be scolded that way...
Bitch? Well, for me.. a bitch is born as a bitch, live her life like a bitch and will die as a bitch eventually....

This Sg. Congkak trip was organized by Lauren (RAC KL) and Jack (RAC Subang). Great job guys!
There's two groups going to Sg. Congkak. Group 1 (Lauren, Steven, Irene, Neeraj, Boon) arrived at the Sg. Congkak camp site in the afternoon. While Group 2 (DKBU, Jennifer, Jennifer's cousin, Jack, Joanne, Lilian, Harley, Anne, Ivan, John Lai, Garrett) reached Sg. Congkak in the late afternoon. We've initially planned for a BBQ at the camp site. But guess what? When we (Group 2) arrived, it's raining cats and dogs, how wanna BBQ?
Sg. Congkak Front Gate
Another shot of the Sg. Congkak Front Gate
There's a medan selera next to the front gate?
The walkway to the camp site
Anyways, we waited for the rain to stop. Luckily it stopped in a short while. While we waited for the tents to be set up, we introduced ourselves and get to know each other =)
The water is too Haiya, can't go in for a dip.
The tents all set up!
When the tents were up, we chose our tents and started to light the mosquito coils (essential for camping trips). And we remove the BBQ stove from Steven's car. The BBQ stove was black and have not been used for quite some time. Eeeee... Guess what? Lauren took it to the nearest toilet and wash it with her bare hands! Walaueh~ Respect lar!
Lauren returned with the cleanned BBQ stove and we started to put charcoal. Err... someone forgotten to bring the firestarter lar... Ish... The guys gotta start it using some newspapers and a lot of patience. While the girls are prepared some tuna with bread and also the chicken for BBQ.
The guys starting up the fire
When the fire started, everyone was BBQing like mad cause all of us are hungry =P~ We ate, we laughed and we enjoyed it! Hehe...
Soon it's getting dark and someone forgotten to bring lamps or candles. Aiyoh... how to BBQ in the total darkness? Luckily few of us brought some torchlights. I wonder, have any of you guys ever BBQed in total darkness with only a torchlight? Hehe... what an experience!
Setting up the stuffs. It's so dark that we need to shine a torchlight =P
Everyone BBQing like mad!
After BBQ, we played 2 rounds of Twister (not again!) in total darkness. The winners were Jennifer & Harley and Anne & Boon. Wow! They can really twist! =P
Wah! Nice Posse =P~
After 2 rounds of Twister, we played Charades. Charades is a game where you have to act out a phrase and your group must guess the phrase. The person acting out cannot talk or make any noise, they can only use hand, leg and body to act out the phrase. That game is so funny.
By this time, Vijay and Brahma arrived just in time to join the charades game. They brought some food and candles for us. Hooray! At last no need use torchlight jor =P
08/05/2005 - Sunday (Mother's Day)
You know, this passes so fast. It's already almost 2 a.m. All of the sudden, they asked me to stand in the middle. Hmm... okay, I complied. Haiya, they reallly really surprised me! They all sang Happy Birthday song and the Birthday song ala Rotaract style (the you're beautiful and no-bloody-use-at-all song =P) and gave me a candle to blow off. You guys miss the cake! Where's the cake lar? Anyways, I wanna thank the Rotaract people for remembering because I don't remember telling anyone about my birthday leh. Anyway, thanks guys!
After that, Vijay and Brahma gotta leave. Vijay got something to do in the morning.
After Vijay and Brahma leave, we played ben dum ben dum game. Can't remember how to sing it or how to play jor. But it requires a lot of concentration.
After the not so nice game, we played 'heart-attack' game. Anne taught us how to play it. We were give a topic like fruits. Then we sit in a circle and name a fruit. That's be your nick name for that round (Tips - Get long and hard to remember nicknames). Then, Anne will distribute the cards on by one. And if both have the same numbers, ie King and King. Both the player have to call out each other nicknames. Whoever can recall the other person's nickname first wins and all their cards will be passed to them. After that the round continues until the all the cards are distributed. The person with the most cards is the loser. Then, it's up to the winners on what you wanna punish him to do. It was a really fun game! We started calling ppl mangostene lar, durian lar, rambutan lar... Then there's a round with animals lar... hehe...
Heart Attack Game - Fun!
After the interesting heart attack game, some of them went for a walk around the woods in total darkness. I went to sleep, it's already 3 a.m. plus and it's been a long day.
The next morning, was woken up by Anne's shouting. Haih... thought wat happen tim... some of them were already in the waters (the water is really cold, cause it just rained yesterday), splashing waters here and there, shouting here and there, like small kids =P (BTW, it's only 8am and it's Sunday lar)
Crazy kids splashing water and shouting here and there
The water has calm down
After waking, we got everyone to get up and have breakfast. We have tuna with bread. Nice! Was surprise to see Jennifer still around. She say she gotta go off at 7 a.m. because she has a seminar in the morning. Guess we had so much fun, that she decided to join us =P
After breakfast, Jack started collecting money from all us for the BBQ food like a loan shark. Hehe... We took a group photo and after that we were ready to jump into the cold waters for a dip. Oh... it's so cold! =D
Ready to jump in!
After a dip, we changed and packed. It's time to go back.
Packing to go home
We left Sg. Congkak about 12pm. We had lunch at Restoran Lisan in Cheras. Tried their pan mee and popiah. The pan mee is not bad though and the popiah is nice but a little too sweet.
Restoran Lisan - that reminds me of the BM aural test...
After lunch, and sending off the people, I went to Teik Seng's place. He had a gathering to watch a movie. They're watching Ocean's Twelve. Had already watched it. Oh well, just watch it again. It's a witty movie. After the movie, was exhausted and returned home for a rest.
For dinner, our family and uncle's family went to the vegetarian shop opposite Fitness First Uptown to celebrate Mother's Day. The was good! The restaurant was packed! Luckily we have made reservations earlier. Dinner was great! Eat until full, the food still keep on coming =P~~~
We back home, online awhile and straight to dreamland... zzZZzzzZZZ...
Here, I wanna thank Lauren and Jack in organizing this wonderful trip. Was really a surprise that you guys remember my birthday! Thanks again! =)
