Love for sport...

Last Friday, Man U beat Everton by 3-2. Guess what? I don't care even if Man U wins EPL!!! :P There's so much beauty in sport. Take one easy target as an example - "boys with football". Try to imagine this scene. Couples of boys who are strangers to one another met at a friend's house. It happened to be all of them are Man U fans but which none of them knew at the start. At first, each would slowly talk about their individual life/school/work story (not much laughter yet). After a few keropok lekor , the conversation started to build up (more laughter by now). All of a sudden, one of them ask the million dollar question, "so, did any of you guys happen to watch yesterday night match?". In a split second, everything would change. They've transformed themselves to *drum roll*... BUDDIES! And so, they talked about previous Man U matches, blunders in every match and almost everything which they could possibly remember (at this stage, there'll b

Sweet dream...

I had a great dream last night! It was about me completing my PCB layout. Thanks to that dream which I had around (4am-4:30am), not only it makes me feel good about continuing the work, it also adds fresh idea to my PCB design. It's 5:37am now. Can't wait to get to the office to work on it!! :) These few days had been long and tiring. All I'm looking at from 10am - 6:30pm is a page of black, blue and red. OK laa , minus the lunch hour, the praying hour and etc. But still! The majority goes to my PCB design maa ;). Yup, 'black' it's the PCB layout background while 'red' and 'blue' is the track colour. Luckily Keith suggested using only two layers. If not my poor eyes would end up looking at other striking colours. If I remember correctly, a week ago, thanks to Effa, I've learned a new term - Lucky Jumps. What happen to me this morning (having that dream) is an example of what Lucky Jumps is. I'm sure many of you too had experienced

Quick Post~ Being reminded...

These few days I've been doing lots of 'side' thinking especially on the topic for my blog. There are a few like that one.. and that one.. and finally that one. Hehe.. But because I couldn't made up my mind on which to choose from, hence, I've decided to look into different subject. I'm trying hard to remember my earlier post of my first impression on Brisbane (I knew I could just look at it now but I choose not to :P).  I remember I did mention that I love the weather here better compare to Southampton. I couldn't remember what else was on the post but if that's the only good thing that I'd written then, I could definitely add more to the list now. However, having said that, Southampton wasn't just cold and gloomy. If you asked me the one great thing that I'd experienced from living in Southampton besides the opportunity to meet some of the great people in Electronic Engineering realm, I would definitely say it goes to having those dedicate

Dear pet...

One of my colleagues today shared us the news about her daughter's dead goldfish. The poor thing was found swimming backstroke instead of the usual free-style this morning :P. She told us that luckily her daughter didn't notice it. What even more interesting to know was her husband was in the quest to find a goldfish that is as similar as the late goldfish so that her daughter won't be upset. Cute kan! My first official baby cat was named Tom + Bong = Tombong ('tom' because he was a male and 'Bong' extracted from the Malay word 'kembung' as in 'bloated'). My younger sister took care of Tombong's younger brother which she called it Felixbong (yup, it was after Felix + Bong :P) which later was nicknamed as Achang (don't ask me how. I really can't remember how it ended up becoming Achang... hehe). Tombong and Achang were just normal orange and white kittens. Our meeting was a sheer coincidence. Our neighbour told us that the t

Unhappy days...

A dear friend of mine who has been following my blog asked me a few weeks ago if I ever had unhappy days. I gave her a quick answer of 'YES' with an added smiley face on the chatbox. She was right to say that there's not one particular post that shows me in distress. Well, here's one :). Although I am not going to start writing a post full of 'tears' and gave you all the details of what had happened :P, I am going to let 'you' to know that yesterday was one of my unhappy moments :). What did I do when I'm unhappy ? Hmm... A straight answer would be - 'to cry'. A longer version of my answer would be - 'to cry and ponder why it happened, how it happened, what did I need to do to straighten things up and etc.. etc...'. Biasalaa kan... huhu... I am sure, like many, one needs to motivate oneself for many particular reasons. How you do it really depends on yourself. As for myself, I always reminded myself to stay happy because I believe

Easter plan...

Yup, today is the starting of my four days holiday! Or is it? Well, If you asked me earlier this week, I would definitely say that I had loads of interesting plans. From DreamWorld to Surfers Paradise to Skirmish to picnic to shopping!! What even more interesting Yaby and I even had the idea of going back to Malaysia during this four days holiday! Seriously!! That shows you just how much I'm looking forward to this day :D. But not anymore... :( As Monday turned Tuesday, I got to know from Abbas that he hasn't finished checking my draft and told me that he might be able to finish it by Thursday. I didn't blame him. He had his hand full. One meeting after another especially now that we are getting more people who are interested in our prototype.  When I heard the news, I've crossed 'picnic' from my things-to-do-during-holiday list. On Wednesday, I realised that there will be a construction work on the rail track to Gold Coast. Wahh! There goes my Gold Coast p

My tennis match...

Yaby and I had been jumping from one activity to another in order to stay fit ( al-maklum laa , lately we both have been piling C 3 H 8 O 3 and its equivalent! :P) Our latest plan is the "tennis".  Since mid-March, Yaby and myself had started playing tennis every Sunday night with our colleagues. And finally, yesterday night happened to be my first official match. Hehe lawak2x . Like Yaby said (together with his sound effect and hand movement), " po dah pusing 360 darjah macam katun pun still tak kena bola... ". Yup, and as you have guessed correctly, Yaby didn't escape not laughing hysterically. (I can't stop laughing myself too.. hehehe.. mmg lawak. nak buat camne ). Honestly, it's harder than what I've anticipated. My salute to all female tennis players! Cayo.. cayo... :D After our opposition won a straight game 5-0, I volunteered to leave the game so that the rest of them could start playing a real match. I could tell that all of them
