Blocking traffic

I wonder if a policeman pass by and see this bus parking in the middle of a traffic, will he issue the bus driver a summon ticket? haha... Actually this bus broke down in the middle of the traffic near Terminal Bus at Sungai Nibong. Well, the driver can't push it to the other side of the road as its way too big for him to move it. So, he call a mechanic to repair it on the spot. Actually there is a mechanic under the bus repairing at the moment I capture this photo. It's just that the front vehicle had block the view that you can see a man under the bus.

Emil Chow and Jacky Cheung concert

Concert info

Jo and me are going for Emil Chow's concert next month, 14 of July. Venue at Putra Indoor Stadium, Bukit Jalil . And on September 14, we're going for another concert too, Jacky Cheung. Also held at Bukit Jalil, but it's an outdoor event. I guess Jacky Cheung have more audience compare to Emil Chow, that's why Jacky need to held his concert outdoor. Anyway, can wait to see both of them singing in concert. But first, need to get us 2 binoculars.
For ticketing info and concert detail, you can call them at 03 2282 2020 or go to their office at Mid-Valley or visit Galaxy Group website. See you there!

Snatch thieves scout in gang

Now a day snatch thief doesn’t work alone, they usually came by group of at least 2 bikes. So, if you happen to encounter with them, look out for their fellow companion. Normally one bike goes to snatch and the other will look around and alert the other to flee the scene when someone approaches.

Yesterday morning my mom met with the snatch thieves while on her way to market. The thief came from side and pulls her necklace. Without hesitate, my mom hold on to the necklace and her shirt as the thief also grab her shirt together with the necklace. After few attempt and failed, the thief push my mom fall to the ground. She was so scared until she can’t speak a word when someone saw the incident and came to help her.

Nothing was get snatch by the thief. She sustains some bruise on the elbow and she came back after the incident without proceeding to market anymore. Her back feel pain hours later because when she falls to the floor, her butt landed first and then the elbow. I was afraid there might be some unseen fatal wound on her so I took half-day leave to take her to clinic for checking. Luckily after check up, doctor said nothing to worry about as it was just normal wound.

This is all my fault, I should have wake up earlier and fetch her to market. Normally she would follow my car every morning when I was on my way to work. Yesterday morning I was over slept by 20 minutes and by the time I’m ready to go to work, she already left.

While fetching her to market this morning, I told my mom to always walk home when there is someone along the route to our house. I even ask my ten years old nephew to accompany my mom to market every morning. Just hope this thing won’t happen to her again after some precautions taken.

Mixed drink

Have you ever try to mixed 100plus, Sprites, lemon and longan in a drink with ice? I bet you haven’t! Try it, not bad too. Joez wanted to start selling drink at Little Penang Street next Sunday. So she and I went to Sunshine Square to buy lemon last night. She wants to make something new, something that no one sells before. We already have 100PLUS, Sprites, 7-UP, tea Boh and longan at home.

First, she mixed 100plus, Sprites and longan and the taste, not bad. Then add in lemon, which she asks her dad to try out. I think her dad only drink half of it then handed it back to Jo, he said it was too sour. I try it later on, ok la, not bad. I like this mixture too, you know why? I consume a lots of sour drinks, fruits, stuff like that, I like sour. My favourite food of all time, Penang laksa and rojak. Of course, both are sour.

Technical vs Sales

I am a technical staff, I work as an Application Engineer or Technical Engineer in a technical department. My work was to solve customer’s problem or ease their problems with our products. Sometimes I need to demo our products to our customer, to show them how it will help them out.

Sales staff was different. They need to sell as much product as possible. They need to hit their quota. Sometimes they will recommend customer to buy products that doesn’t suite their problem. But of course, it should be more expensive than the one that best solve their problem. Why? They need to hit their quota and the most important thing is higher commission.

I don’t give it a shit if my company does not hit the sales quota. To me, making customer feel satisfy is my first role. If customer bought those products that doesn’t suite them well, they will keeps on coming back to us (technical) for solutions, which will in turn make my work getting harder and harder.

Sales man always came to me looking for a solution for their customer, but they always abandon my suggestion and stick to their own. Their suggestion will always less helping customer but will definitely boots their sales. But then, why came to me on the first place for solution since they already had in mind what to sell to their customer? I just don’t understand them, and not intended to figure it out.

Déjà vu

Joez and I were having supper with my closed friend at “Ali” stall in front of Celcom building at Burma Road last Wednesday night. My buddy was back from China with his 2 girl’s colleague. They were here for holiday in Pulau Paya, Langkawi and Redang. My friend had just changed new mobile phone, Nokia N95. I was playing with his N95 then suddenly the low battery message pop up on the screen. At this point something struck my mind, something tells me I seen this or experience this before.

I mean, I was in this place, holding this Nokia N95, sitting on this chair, facing the Celcom building and all my friends were here together with me at this particular location. This picture keeps on showing up in my mind, but when did I seen it before? This is the first time I came to this place, first time in this back alley. I don’t even know there is an Indian “Roti Canai” stall here. But how come my mind tells me I seen this before? I can’t explain, don’t even recall I had dreamed of it before.

Later I told Jo about this, she said this is déjà vu. Some people will experience this. Just like her manager once had déjà vu too. Until today, I still can’t explain when I experienced it. May be it’s in my dream, as I forgot all my dreams right after I woke up from it. Then that night was like reminder to my mind that I had this in my dream. But weird, how can I dream of something haven’t happen before or dreaming the future. It’s really weird and strange! Had you have any deja vu too?

Paintball Game

I was playing paintball game with my colleagues last Saturday afternoon at this paintball field near Yeap Chor Ee road. It was fun playing this shooting game. There were a bunch of peoples with their professional equipments, like their own marker (gun), protection gear, googles, jersey and pants, etc. I manage to snaps a few pictures of their equipments.

The battle field

The battle field from different view

RM350 for 2000 paintballs (bullets) for 14 persons will only last 3 rounds of game which we played for around 30 minutes. Each persons will get approximately 142 paintballs. I only used half of my paintballs as I give away some to my team member (they shoot wild a lot) and drop nearly half of it when I slip on the wet mud. I manage to gun down 4 and make another 4 surrender. I think I am the champion in this game, haha....

I wish I could snap more pictures of the equipments they have. If you are interested to know more about paintball stuff, go to this link Protopaintball.
