3 more days to The Great Day when I¡¦ll finally get my grubby paws on my government exam results! And only untill then can I let go of this imaginary rock sort of sunk somewhere between my chest and stomach, causing immense pressure and sense of impeding doom. Though so far I haven¡¦t been suffering from weird and horrifying nightmares about what I¡¦m probably going to get¡K but jeez, Ain¡¦t I feeling nervous!

Meanwhile I think I¡¦ve got around 1 to 2 more weeks before I¡¦ll get my driving licence! Though I probably still don¡¦t have a chance in driving a Proton Perdanan or anything really cool like that when I go to university, but I still can¡¦t get my minds out of what one of my friends did. He bough a ¡¦69 1000cc Mini Maini and he estimated that even after tuning the whole antique and rendering it, well, drivable, and throwing in accessories like sports rim, CD player, a decent stereo system and the likes of that, it probably wouldn¡¦t have costed more than $3000! Now that¡¦s pretty cheap! If only I could get my parent sto buy me a car¡K

Back from the holidays, still am suffering from post-holiday blues, where every thing just feels so boring, work sounds like over-exploitation and relaxation just ain¡¯t enough.

Meanwhile finished Nick Hornby¡¯s ¡°Fever Pitch¡±, a non-fiction book about life and football. Quite okay, in fact, quite highly recommended, especially for football fans out there. In the meantime am starting on Tom Clancy¡¯s ¡°Net Force.¡± Am hey¡­ whaddaya know, another nice page-turner! Hope to heavy-read and finish book in 3 to 4 days. Heh heh¡­ seems to me I¡¯m starting to gain interest on discounted best-seller paperbacks by big-time writers recently. How¡¯s that for extra cheap entertainment!

Rainy season¡¯s out and El Nino¡¯s paying a visit! Hope they don¡¯t cut the water supply too soon. Smelly bodies wallowing in pools of sweat in hot damp weathers just sounds like a major turn-off to me.

Yesterday upgraded my phone¡¯s LED to superbly cool white colour! In fact the LEDs are so much more brighter that I could even practically use it as a torchlight in a darkened room! Now how¡¯s that for functionality!

Chinese New Year¡¯s just ¡®round the corner! I¡¯ll be somewhere in North Johor during the holidays and won¡¯t be back till Thursday. Adios my dear blog. Won¡¯t be updating ya for some time.

Meanwhile gotta pack my bags.

Realized that one of my cuter colleagues actually has a boyfriend. Argh. That¡¯s one less choice I get. Ah well. (Am feeling slightly disapointed though¡­) Never mind.

Had one of those ¡±Hey-why-not-try¡± crazy ideas today and walked all the way from City Square to Kerry¡¯s, probably a feat never done by any sane Malaysian before. Heck, why don¡¯t they realise it¡¯s hardly even a 5 kilometre distance? Anyway sometimes when I feel really bored, a little bit depressed and a little bit self-destructive (heh heh) when I¡¯m hanging out, I always do these kind of crazy stuff. I remember last time I¡¯ve even walked all the way from Foon Yew High to City Square!! Well, ok¡­ though that time I walked with a close friend and we did chat, joked and laughed merrily all the way, so my emotions are nowhere so disastrous as I said just now when I did that hike.

Latest news say Telekom might raise phone call tariffs! Now that¡¯s going to cause some major buzz among consumers, for many of them are already protesting against the 3 cent per unit (12 sen per minute) charges. Let¡¯s see what¡¯ll happen next¡­

Haven¡¯t been updating my blog for 3 days because didn¡¯t feel like doing it. Bored. Bored. Bored. Argh.

Chinese New Year is coming!! Yep, ain¡¯t I looking forward to the moment when I get to lay my grubby paws on the glorious ang pows from my relatives and then count the crisp cold hard cash inside¡­ Ahh, feels so great just thinking about it. And yep, it gets even better when taken into consideration how many relatives I have! Oh yeessss¡­..

Have you heard that George Bush and Tony Blair might have a chance to be in the running for a Nobel Peace prize? Well, they sure did a lot during the September 11 tragedy¡­ but not much, and nothing really impressive (other than creating interesting news that seized the world¡¯s attention which involved a TV, a couch, a coffee table and nevertheless an interesting little pretzel). I remember reading this line somewhere in the papers, quote, They¡¯re not heroes, they¡¯re just men doing the right thing on the right time, unquote. But anyway let¡¯s at least still give ¡®em some credit for standing up straight boldly in the front line during the times of chaos shall we?
