Wonderful Love... :)

Once upon a time, all feelings and emotions went to a costal island for a vacation. According to each of their nature, each was having a good time. Suddenly, a warning of an impending storm was announced and everyone was advised to evacuate the island.

The annoucement caused sudden panic. All rushed to their boats. Even damaged boats were quickly repaired and commissioned for duty.

Yet, Love did not wish to flee quickly. There was so much to do. But as clouds darkened, Love realized it was time to leave. Alas, there were no boats to spare. Love looked around with hope.

Just then, Prosperity passes by with a luxurious boat. Love shouted, "Prosperity, could you please take me in your boat?"

"No" replied Prosperity, "My boat is full of precious possessions, gold and silver. There is no place for you."

A little later, Vanity came by with a beautiful boat. Again Love
shouted, "Could you help me, Vanity? I am stranded and need a lift. Please take me with you."

Vanity responded haughtily, "No, I cannot take you with me. My boat will be soiled with your dirty feet."

Sorrow passed by after some time. Again, Love asked for help. But it was to no avail. "No, I cannot take you with me. I'm so sad. I want to be with myself."

When Happiness passed by a few minutes later, Love again called for help. But Happiness was so happy that it did not look around, hardly concerned about anyone.

Love was growing restless and dejected. Just then, somebody called out. "Come Love, I will with me." Love did not know who was being so magnanimous, but jumped onto the boat, greatly relieved that she would reach a sage place.

On getting off the boat, Love met Knowledge. Puzzled, Love inquired, "Knowledge, do you know who generously gave me a lift when no one else wished to help?"

Knowledge smiled, "It was Time."

"And why should Time stop to pick me up and take me to safety?" Love wondered.

Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and replied, "Because only Time knows your true greatness and what you are capable of. Only Love can bring peace and great happiness to the world.

"The important message is that when we are prosperous, we overlook love. When we feel important, we forget love. Even in happiness and sorrow we forget love. Only time do we realize the importance of love. Why wait so long? Why not make life part of your life today?

I know my posts lately have been rather depressing. But that's what I'm feeling these days.

School has not been making my life easier.

Anyway, I just watched Shrek 3 with my sister yesterday. It was... okay? A kiddie movie I guess. But the creators of this movie is creative, you have to give them marks for that.

I'll blog more about my life at school when I'm much more energetic.

Life in school is taking the life out of me.

This is how I feel.
If life did not have decisions, hormones and feelings, life would be much easier.

tao @ E-Gate, Penang. =D

tao! I had the chance to try it (after hearing my mother talk about it for such a LONG LONG time...)! =D My sister's birthday was last Thursday, and my father promised her to bring her to tao at E-Gate for a birthday treat. =)
My mother has been to tao (not this Tao though, the one in Juru), a couple of times already. She went with her friends, and said that the food in tao was not bad.
The ambiance...
Let me tell you how this restaurant works. First of all, it's an eat-all-you-want restaurant. You pay a flat rate, and you only have to pay extra if you want their shashimi (raw foods). And they serve Japanese food, mostly. But, the way of serving the food is a little different. Usually, in eat-all-you-want restaurants, the food is served buffet style, right? But not in tao, you have to order the food, and it will be served to you. Therefore, the food is fresher and piping hot, which is a plus point to customers! =D

To me, the pricing is a little more to the expensive side. It's about RM 50 per person. But, what do you expect... for good food, there is always a higher price to pay. :S But oh well... Let me introduce some of their dishes to you. =D
Unfortunately, I don't have this dish's name. But I can tell you what it is. It's small crabs and prawns fried. You eat it with shell and all. I don't really fancy it... But it was something new... NEXT!
E12 Mussel Spicy Mayo
MUSSELS! Eat this and you will grow muscles! (Joke! =D)This was nice! =D NEXT!
E11 Motomaki Cheese Mayo
This was super nice! It's a MUST try dish. We ordered this dish about 4 or 5 times. And on each dish, there is 9 of them. My sister ate about 10+ of them. =D And oh, btw, Motomaki are scallops! NEXT!
Unfortunately, I don't have the name of this dish... But my mother likes it though.
D4 Crab Meat with Cheese.
Nothing really spectacular about this dish. I couldn't really taste the crab meat and cheese, only the flour. NEXT!
I think the name of this dish is... lamb terriyaki. I can't recall, as it was my parents who called for this dish. But it was quite nice, one of the dishes that you MUST TRY! =D
J6 California Temaki.
This was so-so? I think the one in Kaede is much nicer... =) NEXT!
A1 Abalone.
This was so-so also? Abalone lovers can have a feast here! xD
tao! =D I wanna go eat there again, sometime in the future. It's a place for the people with bottomless stomachs! When wanna go eat, must bring friends that can eat a LOT (so that we get our money's worth!)!=D

PLKN Case 6: The 3 Missing Wiras.

A NEW CASE!!! =D (but this case happened just before the semester break)...

PLKN Case 6: The 3 Missing Wiras.
I don't know what is up with cases happening on Sundays, but this is definitely not the first time. Let me tell it from the time I got back from church...

As usual, the van will drop us in front of Urus Setia. On that Sunday, only the 5 of us (out of the usual 6, and out of the total 8) went to church. Dave didn't attend church that day, he had a football match against Delta that day (unfortunately, Alpha lost that match). The van parked outside the office, we got down, and proceeded to the dewan makan! The other trainees would be in the hall, listening to some talk by one of the jurulatih's. In the midst of us eating, the Chinese trainees, who are also out for prayers, would come back, and join us for supper (they have dinner before they leave, as they leave later).

Everything went on as usual, after supper, roll-call. As usual, the procedure of the leaders of each company reporting to the main squad leader in PLKN CASE 1: The Missing Person would be carried out. To our dismay, the squad leader reported 3 trainees from Wira Charlie were reported MISSING. And all of us were thinking, "Oh no! Is this going to be another night waiting for that bunch of idiots, and causing us to lose our precious sleeping time? Where are they going to be this time? Under the rubber tree?". Fortunately, they were found in the second search hunt for them. Guess where they were found sleeping.... In the hall's toilet! Apparently, they had found the talk rather boring, and they headed to the toilet for some shut-eye (as you can't sleep in the hall in peace, because the teachers would seize any opportunity to catch you sleeping).

Because of them, all of us lost 30 LONG MINUTES of our sleeping time. Agh!

Case 6 ends here... =D

PLKN Case 1: The Missing Person.

PLKN Case 1: The Missing Person, for the list of cases, click here.

You must be thinking, how can a person go missing in National Service? Impossible, right? After all, every move NS trainees make are always under the watchful eyes of the jurulatih and discipline teachers. During one of the night's, we had a free do-what-you-want night. We had our supper as usual, then roll-call, before going to sleep. And roll-call is held on the padang kawat lama.

The normal procedure began. First, the company's squad leader will shout "Baris... Baris... Sedia!", followed by "Dari kanan... Nombor!". Soon, after all the companies have completed the process, the overall squad leader would shout "Baris... Baris... Sedia!". When all of us are in our sedia positions, the overall squad leader would again shout "Ketua Kompeni... Lapor!". And the process of the squad leaders reporting the company's strength (attendance) to the overall squad leader, and after this is done, the squad leader would report to the teacher on duty. And guess what, 6 people (from different groups, and all were GUYS!) were reported missing! =.=

Then, the whole process of finding began. We were given orders to sit down, and each company would send volunteers to help "hunt" for the missing people. It was done rather systematically, I would say. You could hear them shouting, like a big war was going on. Finally, the search ended, and only 5 trainees were found. And all of us were like, "Where was the last one?" Another search was launched. By that time, all the other trainees were getting restless and angry. It was already almost close to 12. But still, he couldn't be found. Finally, at midnight, we were allowed back to our cottages to sleep. And the missing person remained MISSING.

The next day, we found out that the ketua jurulatih had made a report to the police at 2:30 a.m., reporting that a trainee from this camp was reported missing. A guess what, at 2:45 a.m., the trainee was found! Guess what he was doing from 11 p.m. to 2:45 a.m.? Sleeping (It is said that he was sleeping under one of the rubber trees at the girls area)! A fight broke out when he returned to his cottage. His roommates weren't too happy of him causing them to lost of sleep (Basically, almost everyone wasn't happy).

Thus, this is PLKN Case 1: The Missing Person. =D

NS Has Come And Gone. :S

I can't actually believe that I'm going to say this, "I MISS PLKN KUALA NERANG, KEDAH!" :S

Yesterday, my mum came and took me out from National Service (NS). Now I'm back home, sitting in front of the computer screen, uploading photos and blogging about NS.

So far, out of the actual 440 trainees that were supposed to attend the training, 49 have left, and there is more leaving as the days go by. Some because of their health, and others got IPTA, matrix, or an offer in some college. Form 6ers are NOT allowed back early, but only for 3 days to lapor diri in their respective schools. This means that the trainees who are going to do form 6 will miss 2 weeks or more of school and a minimum of 5 weeks of tuition? Will they be able to catch up with the classes they miss? I mean, form 6 is known to be tough, and if the government is NOT going to let them out, and because of the missing of classes, who will shoulder the responsibility of their failure? I thought it is written in one of the akta's about studying, that NS will not interfere with the trainee's studies? Oh well...

Anyway, the 5 days after semester break were the best days in camp! I wish I could have stayed longer. :S

I'll blog more about NS soon! =D

The clock of life runs, a "tick" and a "tock",
But not for long, one day it will stop.
Maybe noon or night, or morning hour,
To know the time, none has the power.

To lose one's wealth is such a sore,
To lose one's health is even more...
To lose one's soul can be a terror;
Coz when life is gone, it is forever.

The Bombmaker by Stephen Leather... =)

BOOOOMMM!!!! This book is filled with non-stop suspense! Once I started it, I just couldn't put the book down! (which made me lose an hour of sleep! :@) This book is easy to start and easy to finish. Light-reading basically... =D It took be about an hour to finish the book.
What is this book about? It's about a lady, Andrea Hayes, IRA's most brilliant bombmaker. But, one of her bombs when horrifyingly wrong, and 4 children perished, and that's when she gave it all up. She started a whole new life, her true identity hidden from everyone, even from her husband and daughter, Katie. Life goes on as usual, until one day, their daughter is kidnapped from the house, and Andrea realizes that her pass has come back to haunt her. =D

But what fascinates me in this book is this technology called "Echelon". It has been around since the seventies. It involves the Americans, GCHQ, Australians, Canadians and New Zealand. Between the 5 countries, every single satellite, land line and undersea cable transmission is monitored. Every phone call, fax, telex and email in the world. Echelon can search through all transmissions looking for a particular word, or combinations of words. It can even search out voice prints. Amazing?
This "thing" is believed to be used by the Echelon.
Imagine that, every single thing we send out through text messages, calls, etc... are ALL MONITORED! Where is the privacy promised by the telcos? Hm... O.O Imagine what kind of info all people working there get. And, the problems it can cause.. BUT, think of all the crimes that can be solved too. Oh well, everything has it pros and cons, I guess...?

Book Rating: 7/10

Anyway, BOOM!
