| so long to christmas

Yer.. Christmas is over already. So sad.. So much for 12 days of Christmas huh? Oh well, at least it's been more of a meaningful Christmas than a fun one.. Well, actually it's fun too larr. Basically, I got what I wanted for Christmas - a nice quiet Christmas with people close to my heart. Yup, more of meaningful with a hint of fun.

But it's kinda sad that Christmas is gonna be over soon. Actually, it's already over but lets just pretend that it hasn't. bleh~ Just when I actually, seriously got the Christmas Spirit in me, Christmas is over and all the dong dong chang!! can be heard resounding all over the place. Luckily, those dong dong chang!! ain't that bad you know. Getting those Red Packets filled with money IS a good thing. No doubt about that. As malays would say, "Jika ada rezeki, jangan ditolak," (when there's opportunity, don't say no to it).

Well, so much for that eh? Wishing you all the last wish of Christmas for the year. Chaoz peeps~!

| hey~ i AM playful in real life *smiles*

Just when I thought Christmas was starting to get exciting, the 25th whoosh'ed by without me even noticing. That's it? No more extra delicious food and drinks? No more staying up late at night spying on daddy kissing Santa? That's kinda sad isn't it? Luckily, Christmas last for 12 days! The explanation for it can be easily found in the Christmas carol, 'On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me', or so I was told larr~ If you're one to believe whatever I just wrote up there, it means that Christmas is only starting! Yay~

It's a very warm Christmas indeed. Definitely more special than the rest. Instead of receiving like how I used to, this year, I gave and gave and gave and mann did it felt good. I mean, I literally spent all my pay from working to buy those gift for all those people who meant so much to me. Christmas eve was extra special too. Initially GerX was not going to celebrate Christmas in my house as she wanted to join the CF's Christmas carol. Me being the so nice person that I am ahaks~, was okay with it. Later that evening GerX manage to come to my house and we celebrated Christmas together. Yea~ That's gotta be something special alright.

Today, someone gave me a rather unusual comment. The person said something like this, "You know, from your blog you sound like a very cheerful, playful guy but in real life I didn't know you're so serious one..". Weird huh? Tell me about it. I AM playful in real life. She's just lucky she hasn't seen me being playful in real life. She will surely live to regret it. ahaks~

And now that all the fun and exciting parts are all over (read the top). Life's daily chores are being thrown back at me. With people coming to me for help, the finals are knocking at the door and NOC4 is drawing ever near. Guess I'll be very busy after all. Don't worry, I'll be playful at the same time.
Remember kids,
it's okay to be child-like
- not childish

Okay, I'm gonna fall asleep on the computer if I don't speed up on this post. ahak~ Good night peeps and Blessed Christmas!

Okies.. See the post at the bottom? Yeah~ It's actually to be from Sippy's blog. So if you're reading the bottom post, it's from Sippy, not me. Kinda funny though how it showed up here instead of her own blog.

I wonder how long I didn't update my blog d.. Ever since my laptop can't go online, I feel like disconnected from the world, unable to catch up with wat happening in other ppl's lifes.. I'm really sad case man..

Christmas is around the corner. I'm sure lots of blogs blog about Christmas. Just read Kenny Sia's one, he wrote about tips for buyin guy's pressis. I agree watever he wrote but I know I can never afford them in this stage.. somebody has to wait for a long long time for those stuffs. =P

Tuesday's CF is quite awesome. We have Christmas party that nite and i wear a pinkish orangy shirt with a dark blue skirt and I look quite cute. ^_^ I'm CP after all, the "cute cute princess". We exchange present and ate turkey. Nice lar.. I got a hanger in seashell and starfish form.. looks very ery cute. Want to thank the person who gv me this lar.. haha. =) Wanna thank for the CF commitee who organize the party also, they hv done an awesome job. ;)

Yesterday went to the voices debate meeting. I haven't debate for a long logn time. I'm not a debate material and I'm suck in debating. I dun even know wat posititon I'm in until ppl told me. Lame, rite?? =P Anway, the motion is interesting, "gay couple should adopt kids". I was same group with dale, we were the closing op. Dale's a good debater and pity him he had to stucked with me. Aiks aiks.. Sorry Dale.

| the ultimate question?

Seriously, why did that bloody chicken cross the road?

You know, one of life's greatest questions are generally questions that points back to us. Call me crazy but as humans, having pride and ego, we thrist to know about ourselves and how people look at us. Sure we ARE ourselves and we KNOW a lot about ourselves, but in the end, we don't really know how we are in the eyes of others. Having that old habit and character, we are so used and comfortable with our ever interesting personality. Just like how we can't smell our own body odour but others can? Yea, the same thing.

So what drives us to seek out the nature of ourselves? I guess it can be due to ego and pride too. Some people can be very touchy about how others think of them. Some people take whatever comments about them with an open ear while others just don't care. With that said, I've just given myself a lame excuse to post up some Blogthings Quizes. bleh~ I'm lame.

How You Life Your Life

You seem to be straight forward, but you keep a lot inside.
You're laid back and chill, but sometimes you care too much about what others think.
You prefer a variety of friends and tend to change friends quickly.
You tend to dream big, but you worry that your dreams aren't attainable.

Your Heart Is Green

Love completes you, but that doesn't mean you seek it out.
When love comes your way, you integrate it peacefully into the rest of you life.

Your flirting style: Laid back

Your lucky first date: Walking around aimlessly and talking

Your dream lover: Is both enthusiastic and calm

What you bring to relationships: Balance

All American Kid

Popular but not plastic. Athletic but not a jock. Smart but not a brain.

You were well rounded and well liked in high school.

You Are Somewhat Machiavellian

You're not going to mow over everyone to get ahead...
But you're also powerful enough to make things happen for yourself.
You understand how the world works, even when it's an ugly place.
You just don't get ugly yourself - unless you have to!

| no sweets - for the naughty kids

Christmas is in the air. Sorry. I mean the Christmas spirit is in the air. And it isn't as cheerful nor exciting as it was before. Guess it's only natural that as you get older, the lesser the 'excitement'. Remember back when we were just kids? How our parents would sneak out late at night when we were dead sounds asleep to put those small gifts of chocolate and candy into our Christmas socks. Waking up the next day never seem as fun as the other usual days. How much have we forgotten.

the clouds will always be rolling rolling rolling

Melaka is expanding in an increasing pace. Even our traffic is mimicking the great busy K.L. roads. The roads, changes a lot too. In the past, you can turn here to get there but now, you have to turn here, turn there, stop for 5 seconds and then turn again to get there. One of the latest changes in the roads of Melaka is the one where normally you can turn into Jaya Jusco if you're coming from Bukit Beruang without having use the main road. But the dudes there thought it would be a splendid idea to block it and allow cars to go out, not come in. Got fooled by it twice already. bleh~

Image hosted by

hmmm.. looks like a familiar road in kl doesnt it?

Just like the roads of Melaka, the spirit of Christmas.. more like, the idea of Christmas is ever changing too. I remember back once they change those advertising signs from the usual Christmas to X'mas. There was a huge debacle over it. On one side, they say that it's really wrong to cut the name Christ out of Christmas. The other said that 'X' is a symbol of Christ in Hebrew (i think). For me, I'm more of the conservative type of people so I'll definitely prefer the former - just like how I would like my pizzas.

the 3 of us ate a 6 person meal before

Yea, I'm more conservative than many of you think. Sure, I crack up corny jokes and I talk a lot of crap, but I'm sure very conservative when it comes to many issues. I have my stand on certain stuff like keeping myself a virgin for my future-wife and I don't mind facing those laughs and jeers of my friends. To me, everything comes with a price - I'll pay for it. Easier said than done right? ahaks~ patience.. patience..

now no one will wanna sleep on my bed

Still.. wassup with Christmas? How do we make it cooler? Maybe, instead of greeting our friends with the tongue-sticking-out WAZZZUP!!, we can use the alternate tongue-sticking-out SHALLLOMM!! (Deric told me that joke - blame him). ahaks~ Truth be told, Christmas' TRUE meaning is already as cool as it can get. If anything would get me into the 'Christmas spirit', the true meaning of Christmas will.

wonder how EP looks like a scene from CSI:Miami

I guess the thing that really kick-start the Christmas in me, was today's or yesterday, depending on when you read this, CF Christmas Party. Picture your ordinary CF meeting. Done? Hold that picture still. Now add gifts and presents into the picture. Hmmm~ Something's still missing eh? Here comes the fun part, add tons and tons of food ranging from Curry Puffs to Grand Berry Cheese Cakes (nicely made by Mark). Not good enough? Throw in 2 huge roasted turkeys. It's been more than 2 years since I last had turkey and damn does it taste good. Gotta love it.

| story of the streamyx : the end


A word of advice: never trust a computer. Seriously. I mean, just look at at psycho A.I. SkyNet. We gave it our trust handed the safety of our family and our nation to it and what did it do? Attack puny humans and send Terminators back in time. *sigh* Things like these just gives us bad experiences.. just like the first time you had constipation. "yes sir, I've checked our computers and it says your area has streamyx". Note the "our computers". There's something evil going on I tell ya.

But back then we were still uncertain if it would work or not. As skeptical as we may be, there was a shimmer of hope left in us. 5 days after re-registering, the technician came to test out our connection. We held our breath in anticipation. After 10 minutes, the man was still working on the same line. A sudden de-ja-vu flashed in our minds. We knew the out come of it even before the man was finish. Not wanting to waste time, I went to the kitchen to sharpen my cleaver. True enough, there was no broadband line - and I had to bury another corpse.

2 years later

Dad came home one day all excited saying that our taman has broadband. As convincing as he sounded, we didn't believe him. After having gone through all those years of physical and emotional torture, we knew better than to trust those words. We demanded proof of our father's claim. He said that another family in our row of houses has already installed streamyx and is using it. "Nah~ It can't be real~" we told ourselves. Dad said we would dig deeper into this and tried not to increase the body-count.

Just days after dad's broadband claim, a man called the house saying that our taman has streamyx. Being the nice person I am, I resisted the urge to curse and swear before slamming down the phone. We discussed and set the date where he will come to.. well, 'install' streamyx. I sharpened my cleaver in preparation of that day to come. Bro helped too. That day came sooner than expected and we were very excited about who's gonna get buried later. A wira parked in front of our house and a young man came out from the car. He introduced himself as a technician for streamyx and went on to check our line. I stood behind him with my cleaver ready to swing his head off his body. 5 minutes went on and he stood up and said, "All done~". "All done? What do you mean all done?", I asked almost revealing the cleaver hidden behind my back. Puzzled by our question he replied, "Well, done as in, you can use streamyx now. You have broadband~"

We couldn't believe our ears. Is it true that the day of broadband in the house of Liu has finally come? It must be a dream! It's definitely a scam! I should just chop him up into pieces and give his left-overs to the dogs. We tested the raw power of broadband, opened up a blank webpage and typed in and in an instant the whole page appeared before us. It is true. We finally have broadband in our home.. and I'm getting too emotional. Finally, we can do the things we've always wanted to do.

But after having this 'gift', I realize that nothing much has change. I still dunno what to do. All the anticipation that accumulated out of all those years, boiled down to this? Disappointing indeed. We have streamyx and we dunno what to do with it. So much for the hype. This sucks~

| story of the streamyx : the beginning

I remember there was once upon a time.. A young chap rang my door bell in the middle of a bright sunny afternoon. "Hi", he said. "Are you interested in having broadband services?". Ahhh.. yes~ Broadband. Those magic words rang in all our ears. After hearing the news that our taman is finally able to have a Streamyx connection, the house was in the celebration mood. We eagerly filled in the forms and set the appointment dates, counting down every single day.

Alas, the day had come. Smiling from ear to ear, we greeted the fellow technician that's standing in front the outer gates. We even gave him a cup of cola as he set up his equipment. But something was amiss. There was no response from him even after 10 minutes of playing with the main phoneline. We were anxious and worried, like soon-to-be parents. "Hmm.. wait arrr, I call my superior". Oh no~ Is there something wrong? Did we forget to pay the bill? I've already dispose of those bodies. Our thoughts we filled with worries and it got worse when he said 'problem' over the phone. "Umm.. is there a problem ah?", my dad asked. "I don't know how to tell you this but.. your baby didn't make it." "What?". "*cough*, I mean arrr, yorr fone-lyne bo signal".

*crashing sound*

Despair and sadness filled our hearts as our world tumbled into a void of darkness. Devastated.. Utterly devastated. "Sowee for yor loss". We looked to him with blank eyes. "Ehh.. can I go now arr?". Our mind were shouting foul and filth but mouths just couldn't bring it out - we could only think of one thing.. "*nervous* Ermm.. excuse me arrr, can yu plees oben de gate? *swallow*". In our minds, his words are like drops of water in the middle of the ocean, crushed by the might waves. "Wha-? NOOooooooooooo... *silence*". We took whatever juicy parts of him that we can and disposed the rest.

a year later..

It was like any other day. The horrific incident that we went through last year has been well put aside in our hearts. But wait, what is this? A streamyx banner? I couldn't read well but I think it says something like 'YOUR TAMAN GOT STREAMYX LIAO! FASTER APPLY!'. Though I was still skeptical about this so-called informative banner, I told my family about it. We called up the tmNet centre the reply we got was, "yes sir, I've checked our computers and it says your area has streamyx". The void of the 'Last Year Incident' were filled with this tiny ray of hope that came from a sweet lady. But I guess, luck, was never on our side..

to be continued...

| we weren't bad, just naughty

The Lord works from the inside out. The
world works from the outside in. The world
would take people out of the slums. Christ
takes the slum out of people, and then they
take themselves out of the slums. The world
would mold men by changing their environment.
Christ changes men, who then change their
environment. The world would shape human
behavior, but Christ can change human nature.
~Ezra Taft Benson~

The next few weeks gonna be fun. Lots of activities are up and running. Worst of all, the mid terms are knocking at the doors of every MMU student. We CF'ers have other things in mind though. After being inspired by works of Robert Frost, we're gonna walk the road not taken. The previous sentence proves that I can STILL remember my Form 5 literature. Not bad eh?

Image hosted by

from the bright sunny day..

About that particular road that's not taken.. I think. Though mid terms drawing ever near and all.. Though we're all busy with the upcoming HUGE Camp.. Though NOC4 is bugging every cell of our brain.. We, MMUCF'ers, aregonnawatchChroniclesOfNarnia!! Yay!! As great and exciting as it sounds, I can't go with them. Reason being that I have a mid term paper on the same day and time. That sucks huh? As if it being the same day isn't bad enough, it's on the same time. I sense a conspiracy going on. Hmmm.. Its not a problem I guess. After all, I can always watch later with GerX or something. So for the whole semester, these are the activities that are going on in my life; FYP project, Malaysian Studies project, Business Management assignments, HUGE Camp work, NOC4 music practice, and an assortments of tutorials and minor assignments. Great larr. Exactly what I need - more work. ahaks~

Image hosted by the setting of a peaceful horizon..

As excited as I sound, I'm actually quite the opposite. I just received an sms from my ex-classmate back in High School. It seems my friend's mother lost her battle with cancer. So this next few lines are gonna be about a friend of mine and the adventures we had.

Image hosted by

..from a stupid moron..

Lakshman Raj. I've known him since primary school. Though we weren't so close back then, I knew him as a schoolmate and we hung out sometimes. When we entered secondary school, now that's when the fun began. From scouts to regular insane stunts, we did it as group of friends and I had the time of my life. Form 4 and 5 were the craziest of all times. From bike racing to skipping school or 'panjat tembok' as we call it. Heck, we didn't even need to climb our school walls, we just walk right out the main gate. ahaks~ From fights right after school to chasing people behind 'Payung'. From stalking people at night to those free drinks at PURE. Times when friends are indeed friends. When one is in trouble, everyone will be there. In fact, once when Raj met an accident before school started, more than half of the class didn't go to school that day. We located him, gave him a ride while we repaired his bike. Sure those times were the really dark chapters of my sinful life but nonetheless, when I look back and reminisce, I knew I had fun and I didn't regret them at all - I grew alot from them.

Image hosted by you and your mom~

Raj came from a broken home. His mom separated from his father because his father's mom is racist against her as a Chinese. Actually, there's more to that then the skin colour but I don't think it really matters. What matters is that I never thought he had a complete family once upon a time, till one day I stumbled upon a picture on his drawer, a complete family portrait - a happy family. After the separation, his mom went to UK to work. She would come back to Melaka once in a while and cook for all of us. She was a very nice lady. Though we never thought of her a mother, she treated us all like a son. More than half a year ago, Raj told us his mom was diagnosed with cancer and he's going to live in UK to take care of her. We haven't seen him since then. Just moments ago, WeeD smsed me telling me the dreaded news and I almost lost the mood to write this post. Raj, your mom was a great mom. We Konn Manns are here for you dude, JackAss for life.

| when a fable ends, the speed begins

I kinda like the title. Sounds cool doesn't it? ahaks~ Dad's back once again and he's looking cheerful as ever. Well, I'm assuming he is cheerful larr, but we wouldn't know till later at night right? Miss him I do. Obey him I will. Love him I must. Yoda I copy..



Yea, I dig Fable : The Lost Chapters (TLC). I dig it goood. So the original xbox Fable is kinda short.. okay, it's short, we all know that. But atleast TLC has a few extra quest and missions that makes it better than them consoles (discriminating sneer). ahaks~ Should Lionhead make a sequel for Fable : TLC, I'm gonna get it alright. It's a good game that shouldn't be missed. I mean, come on.. Does my character look cool doing that or what? Gotta hand it to Lionhead Studios for making those character's-looks-and-alignment-change-based-on-actions-thingie games, they're really good at it. Another reason why I say this game is good is because I got my brother hooked on it. He's playing it from scratch all over again. *smiles*

coool leh?

So now that I've finish Fable and all, I wonder what am I gonna do on my free-time at home? Maybe I'll pick up my bible and read a little or even study those dusty notes and stuff. Maybe I'll just do some good deed so that my character alignment will change to "good". Sorry. No Fable talk anymore, I promise (fingers crossed).

Some predict that it's gonna be a really boring sem though we're in the midst of a short sem with a FYP deadline hanging on our butts. Yea, 2nd year Diploma students have already started doing our FYP. Not to mention NOC4 is nearing the horizon - aka, more work. Yet the signs of boredom are eminent and distinguishable.
