My dreams are worthless, my plans are dust, all because when I had them, I did not take any action. When I had them, I did not take any action. What a waste! Action, is the food and drink that will nourish me to my success.

My procrastination has held me back, I must do what I need to do today, and not do them tomorrow. For maybe tomorrow, I have other things to do, or maybe I will not wake up from my slumber.

All the time I have wasted, due to procrastination. Sometimes, it is just say want to do, but you don't do it. Maybe you have an idea, but due to procrastination and laziness, you did not work on your idea, and somebody else took it. This happened to me a few years back. A few years back, my friend and I had a dream to make the best and most fun board game. We started planning and researching. Our hearts was full of determination at the beginning. But after weeks went by, our enthusiam disappeared. Soon, everything came to a stand still. And until now, nothing has changed. All our efforts has been wasted. Sigh!

Therefore, I have learned to act quickly. Don't be lazy. You might lose something you do not want to lose.

EURO 2008 Final...

And Spain wins!!! Beating Germany 1-0. A beautiful goal by Torres, ending Spains 44 year long wait.

World Cup Soccer....

This game is ok... Not as fun as EURO CUP 2008 game.. but quite nice... It has no corner kicks, no penalties, no fouls and you can't tackle the player... And only 3 players... The graphics is not very good though... And it is quite easy to score a goal....One good thing about this game is, you can choose your favorite country! Portugal for me!
The results table...
At the end of the play-off... Well I won every game... Hehe :)
In the last 16, against Netherlands...
Wow, this game is the toughest I played until now. After defeating England, I will now face another football superpower, Brazil. I don't think I can beat Brazil.
Hey! I beat Brazil 3-2... Lucky one... Nearly lost in the end. But scored two lucky goals at the second half. Argentina next!
Started with 1-2 in the first half. After miraculously scoring 3 goals in the last 10 minutes, I won!!! Haha... :)
I give this game a rating of 5.5/10.

EURO 2008 FINAL!!!

Tonight shall be night, where we will know the winner of the EURO 2008, walking away with 7.5 million euros for winning the finals. It's Spain against Germany. Who shall win? They have met 19 times. Germany has won 8, Spain 5, and drew 6 matches.

Germany is sticking with the 4-5-1 formation and Spain too, because of David's Villa's injury. I think Germany's mindset should be an advantage, because the players watch Spain play. Spain in the other hand, shall have an advantage in their technical quality, confidence and familiarity.

I think Spain will win, their players are young and energetic. It will be an interesting match...

We take things for granted everyday. The air we breathe, the clothes we wear are just a few examples. Take air for example. Without air, we cannot survive for more than a few minutes. Air is available to everyone, yet people use it differently. Some people breathe in air to sustain themselves and sit around and feel sorry for themselves, while others, use the energy it provides to make a difference in their lives.

It is almost like opportunities. It is everywhere. Only difference is, they come and go, and you have to act on it. Sometimes, when you miss an opportunity, and you are lucky, it comes back, but if you are not, if goes and never comes back forever. Opportunity alone does not guarantee success. Opportunities must be seized and acted upon. Someone once said "people don't act to fail, but people fail to act". This is very true.

For example, in my own life. I missed my opportunity, my dream to be on the school's drama team. In the beginning, I was in it. But, not long after I was in it, due to some quarrels and misunderstanding, I quit! Well, once people are angry, they can throw everything away, even the things that is most precious to them. Anger is a dangerous thing. They later called me back, but I was still mad at them, so I rejected their offer. I failed to act to cool my temper down. Now, because i'm not in it, I feel anger each time I see those who are competing. Well, sorry Keat Hwa 2 drama team, I support Keat Hwa 1's team. Maybe next year, I'll support you, when I've learnt to control my rage. It was my fault for not appreaciating and seizing the opporunity, when I had a second chance.

Well, as I said, it takes more than opportunities to succeed, it's up to you and what you do about it.

A to Z...

Today, while I was flipping through one of the library books, I came across something unique. I decided to post it out, because it has gave me encouragement. It's a poem with starting with every alphabet from A to Z...

Here goes:

Avoid negative people.
Believe in yourself.
Consider things from every angle.
Don't give up and don't give in.
Enrich your life today, yesterday is history.
Family and friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy.
Give more than you planned to.
Hang on to your dreams.
Ignore those who try to discourage you.
Just do it.
Keep trying no matter how hard it seems, it will just get easier.
Live well, love lots and laugh.
Make it happen.
Never lie, cheat, steal, always make a fair deal.
Open your eyes and see things as they really are.
Practice makes perfect.
Quitters never win, winners never quit.
Read, study and learn about everything important in your life.
Stop procrastinating.
Take control of your destiny.
Understand yourself in order to understand others better.
Visualize it.
Want it more than everything.
Xcellerate your efforts.
You are unique, nothing can replace you.
Zero on your target, and go for it!

The last four...

Euro 2008 has kicked off and has almost come to an end... The last four

Germany reached the semifinal stage of Euro 2008 by a convincing 3-2 victory against tournament favorites Portugal, they beat my favorite team!!! With my favorite team out, I support my next favorite team, Germany!

Did you know Turkey has the most yellow cards and foul throughout the whole Euro 2008?

Germany has won 11 of 17 meetings against Turkey, with three draws. But the Germans have lost two of the past three and drawn the other.
I hope Germany will win tonight. Good luck Germany!

Spain has won three of its meetings with Russia and drawn the other. I think Spain will win tomorrow.

Currently mad about....

V1: Take time to realize,
That your warmth is
Crashing down on in.
Take time to realize,
That I am on your side
Didn't I, Didn't I tell you.

But I can't spell it out for you,
No it's never gonna be that simple
No I cant spell it out for you

C: If you just realize what I just realized,
Then we'd be perfect for each other
and will never find another
Just realized what I just realized
we'd never have to wonder if
we missed out on each other now.

V2: Take time to realize
Oh-oh I'm on your side
didn't I, didn't I tell you.
Take time to realize
This all can pass you by
Didn't I tell you

But I can't spell it out for you,
no it's never gonna be that simple
no I can't spell it out for you.

C: If you just realized what I just realized
then we'd be perfect for each other
then we'd never find another
Just realized what I just realized
we'd never have to wonder if
we missed out on each other now.

V3: It's not always the same
no it's never the same
if you don't feel it too.
If you meet me half way
If you would meet me half way.
It could be the same for you.

C: If you just realize what I just realized
then we'd be perfect for each other
then we'd never find another
Just realize what I just realized
we'd never have to wonder
Just realize what I just realized

If you just realize what I just realized


missed out on each other now
missed out on each other now

Realize, realize
realize, realize

Friends... Haiz...

This is the second time I posting about this... The last time I posted about this was last year. Just reaching Christmas.

I still can't get it friends are for. Are friends really important? Haiz... I just get restless and angry at the thought of it. I couldn't hold it much longer and just had to let it go somewhere... Bad rumors still spread around about me. This has caused me unnecessary stress!!! It's crowding up my mind.

I think most of my friends at school are fair-weathered or maybe just in front of you, he or she is your friend, but behind, they talk bad about you. I don't think I have many true friends. True friends are indeed very little, but fair-weathered and false friends are plentiful.

After all, no one cares about me...

A Narrow Escape...

Here is a story, I wrote for my mid-year English exam. I didn't do pretty well for my English paper this time. Sigh. I suppose I still can't write Grade A essays. Well, here it goes.

Last Friday, my friends and I decided to go to the beach for a picnic. It was sunny, just perfect for a picnic. This beach was one of the few remaining beaches that was still clean.

After packing and getting ready for the picnic, we took off and headed for the beach. We bought quite a number of things there. Among the things were spades, pails, for building sandcastles, food to eat, extra change of clothing, because we wanted to go swimming, and other stuff needed in our picnic.

When we reached there, we were surprised to see that the beach was quite empty. It was a public holiday and usually it would be full to the brim. Abu, my friend, said that it was still early and told everyone to look for a comfortable spot before the place filled up. After 10 minutes of searching, we finally found a nice spot under the trees. We quickly unpacked and got ready. Since everybody helped, everything was ready in 20 minutes. By the time we had unpacked, the beach was already almost full. Good thing we came early!

After unpacking, Jason and Abu took the spades and pails and started digging to build the biggest sandcastle on the beach. May and Janice decided that they would read under the shade of the trees, while Zhean, Soan, and I decided to take a swim.

When I was admiring the sandcastle Jason and Abu was building, May suddenly shouted "Look out! There is a shark behind you!". I thought she was joking because she always liked to crack jokes. But when I saw the frightened looks of Zhean and Soan and all the people swimming back to the shore, fright filled me. Goosebumps appeared everywhere, and I began to sweat. I turned and saw a black fin heading towards me at great speed. I didn't want to be the shark's lunch. Caught aware, I moved away, and started swimming to the shore as fast as I could. The shark missed me by inches. When I next looked up to the shore, my friends had already reached the shore, signaling and shouting for help, "Help! Help! A shark is chasing my friend!". I was still quite far from the shore, because I went to retrieve a ball that I had thrown too far when I was playing with Soan and Zhean in the sea.

Suddenly, I felt something bit my leg. A sharp pain on the leg and something pulling me. I struggled, but the shark was stronger than me. I could see the water around me turning red in blood. I struggled to get free and get to the shore, but I seemed going further and further away. I thought this was the end of me. Suddenly, I heard a long Bang!", then my leg was free! By that time, I had already used most of my strength. But I still fought on to the shore. Suddenly, the world just turned black.

When I next opened my eyes, all of my friends were beside me and a doctor was there bandaging me, Soan and May told me what had happened after I fainted. They had called for help and the lifeguard came. When he saw what had happened, he called the other lifeguards had a shotgun. The lifeguard aimed and fired at the shark. The shark died instantly. After listening, I thanked the lifeguards for their plucky action. If it wasn't for them, I would be not here now. It was indeed a narrow escape!

So, what do you think of my essay?

With petrol prices increasing, public transport must improve...

All the while, public transport in quality has been bad. The buses arrive late, buses are sardined-packed, etc...

Some drastic action must be taken, so that the people can cut cost. Everything is increasing price, petrol, essential goods, etc...

In my opinion, I think the Malaysia government should introduce bus lanes, like in Singapore. This way, the buses can be faster than the private cars who drive very slowly. No wonder, last year, when I was in Singapore, the buses were always on time! Another way public transport can be improved, is by charging lower fares. Low fares are crucial, so that the lower income people can afford it. If they can't afford public transportation, what more private cars? This way, public transportation will be more attractive too. With more people taking public transportation, we are actually helping the environment too. The government should have more buses running. Most of the time, the buses are delayed. And at peak hours, the buses are sardined-packed! Keeping enough buses on the road is not just about buying new buses, but keeping the existing ones in working condition. The people chosen to drive the buses must be careful too. Every month, I read of a few bus crashes. Pick the correct people to do the work!

I think, with the above steps taken, the quality and efficiency of public transport will improve.

EURO 2008 has kicked off!!!

The EURO 2008 has kicked off on the 8th of June 2008. It's a pity all the games are screened on TV at night. I want to watch the games! I've read somewhere on the net that the winners of EURO 2008 would get as much as 23 million euros!
The UEFA organization will generate a record income of 1.3 billion euros. Haiz... So much money!!!
The 16 finalist, that participate gets a whooping 7.5 million euros each. 16 finalist, 120 million euros!!! They get it just for participating! They will get a further 1 million euros win and 0.5 million euros for a draw in the group stages. The eight teams in the quarter-finals will each receive 2 million euros! And the semi-finalist will share 6 million euros! The winning finalist will get 7.5 million euros, while the loser finalist will get 4.5 million euros. WOW! Just so much money spent on a football competition alone.

A handphone is a useful gadget, yet it also can be bad for you. Everything has its pros and cons, even the handphone.
The handphone has many pros, one of them is during an emergency, you can call someone for help instantly. For example, if you are stuck in the city, or lost of finding a place you want to go, you can just use the GPS which is one of the many functions of the handphone. If your handphone isn't equipped with a GPS, or isn't a GPS phone, you can just call a friend for directions, than asking a stranger for directions.
Another benefit of having a handphone is, you get to stay connected with your friends. For example, if you are living in Alor Star, and your pal is staying in Johor, and you wish to just have a chat with him, you can just call or send an SMS. You can even talk face to face through the handphone with 3G. You will not need to trouble yourself to travel all the way down to Johor to talk to him. Everything is just at a touch of a button.
When you are bored and have nothing to do, you can just play with your handphone games, or watch a movie, or even surf the web! It can also be a source of entertainment. For example, picture yourself in a bus, bored, with nothing to do, you can just take out your handphone and occupy time by playing games on your handphone or watch a movie.
Handphone has its cons too. One thing bad about having a handphone is handphone sends out EMF, which is bad for the brain. If you place your handphone near your
near your phone within a 20cm radius for a long period of time daily, you are actually increasing your risk of getting brain cancer by 10%.
The handphone can also be a source of distraction. For example, when a person is doing something, and the telephone rings, you will stop everything to answer the call. This distracts the person nd causes the person to lose concentration on what he is doing.

How to save petrol...

  1. Drive smoothly
    Aggressive driving can use a lot of fuel. Avoid accelerating too hard or braking too hard and try to keep your steering as smooth as possible.
  2. Use higher gear
    The higher gear you drive in, the lower your engine speed is, which can improve fuel efficiency.
  3. Tune and service your engine
    A well-tuned engine can improve fuel economy by up to 4%, so change your oil and follow your car manufacture's recommendation.
  4. Keep your tyres at the right pressure
    Tyres that are under-inflated by just 1 psi can reduce fuel efficiency by 3%.
  5. Avoid carrying excess weight
    For every extra 45 kg, your fuel efficiency can drop by 1% - 2%.
  6. Keep the windows close
    Wind blowing through an open window will slow you down, causing you to put your foot down, using more fuel.
  7. Use the correct oil
    Using the correct oil can improve the fuel efficiency by 1% - 2%.
  8. Avoid excess idling
    Idling gets you no where but you burn fuel.
  9. Cruise control
  10. Take the roof rack off
So, everyone use these steps to reduce your fuel consumption. Save petrol!!!

Petrol price increases, and everything increases!

Just a few days ago, the petrol price in Malaysia increased by a whooping 78 sen. Once petrol prices increases, it causes a domino effect. Bus and lorry companies are increasing their charges for their services. Lorry transport charges have increased by 40% - 60%. With this increasing, food prices, everything will increase, because of transportation fees. Bus services may grind to a halt when quota runs out. 
Though the government will see whether the road tax may be reduced. The government so far has announced  a RM 200 reduction on road tax for private vehicles with engine capacity over 2000 cc and private motorcycles with engine capacity over 250 cc, which isn't much. The government is also giving a rebate of RM 625 a year for private vehicles with engine capacity up to 2000 cc and private pick up trucks and jeeps up to 250 cc. A RM 150 reduction will be given to motorcycles with engine capacity up to 250 cc. 
In my opinion, I think the government increased the fuel prices to drastically, it should have been increased in stages. People would have to change their lifestyles in a blink of an eye. The people won't be able to cope, people will have to spend extra for transportation.

Today is Dutch Lady Milk Day!!!

Today, June 1st, Dutch Lady Malaysia celebrates its own nationwide milk day campaign themed "Dutch Lady Milk Day", where 50 000 milk packets will be distributed free across Malaysia. Dutch Lady Milk Day is part of Dutch Lady Malaysia month long "Spread the Goodness of Milk" campaign, which is also in line with the government efforts to create a healthy and active Malaysia.
Did you know that, Malaysians are still not used to drinking milk on a daily basis? We need milk for our physical and mental growth and agility. Did you know that milk can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes? Did you know that milk can reduce breast cancer?
