The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Hi all.. It's new years eve.. N i'm stuck in my house with nothing to do except surfing.. I'm sure you guys have interesting plan at this time.. Well, before i talk about my new year resolution of whatever.. I want to talk about this movie.. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button..

I guess you all know i'm a huge Brad Pitt fan.. I adore him! I'm a fan of his since 1997 and i love him more now.. If i ever met him, i think i would have a heart attack. Well, this movie has beaen generating a lot of buzz especially for the awards.. I saw the trailer (lots of em') and i think this movie is beautiful.. I don't understand why it premier late in Malaysia.. If i'm not mistaken, it will premier in February.. (wtf? I can't wait that long!) I know most of you guys will say, "Ala..Download aje".. well, since i'm a huge fan, i'm gonna wait n watch it in cinema.. (spoken like a true Brad Pitt fan.. cewah)

This movie is about a person who is born under unusual circumstances.. It ages backwards.. Well, i'm not really good in explaining the movie here.. But you can watch the trailer.. It's my personal favourite trailer..



You have to really listen to whatever they are saying.. It's really sad though.. Brad said in one of his interview.. (Not in exact words la.. byk sgt interview i tgk..hehe) "When you watched this movie, it makes you want to call your folks or your loved ones just to tell them that you loved them".. While his partner, Angelina Jolie said something like "It makes you appreciate the moment you have now.. and makes you think about your mistakes in the past, the things u regret.." and i can't remember the interview also.. Haha.. Ape la.. But in my own words.. I would say this movie will make you appreciates what you have now.. You let go of the smaller and silly things that gets between you and your circle of people like your family, your frens, your special someone.. Live to forgive and forget.. I can't wait to watch this movie!! & I love you Brad!!

So, as for my new years resolution.. I don't know la.. In a few weeks, i'm gonna start a new life by working in a new company, no longer staying wif my family and i'm gonna drive to work (I hate driving, i rather take the public transportation).. It's gonna be big for me.. My new job will be totally different from my current one.. And it's been years since i've lived wif my family.. and i'm scared to live on my own.. :( & I'm gonna drive to work everyday! it sucks.. So i guess my new years resolution is.. to be brave, to be tough and stronger in whatever comings.. InsyaAllah..

For all my family, friends and whoever that knows me, i would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year.. and I'm sorry for every mistakes that i've made in 2008 and hopefully we can start afresh in 2009.. I love all my family and friends.. n all the best to you.. :)

Jatuh

Sejak peristiwa menguris hati semalam, dah rasa mcm x berdaya lagi.. Berapa kali perlu jadi mcm ni? Berapa kali baru dapat faham yang ape yang dihajati x semestinya dimiliki? Berkali-kali hati hancur.. Kuat ke untuk menghadapi berkali-kali kedukaan yang sama?

Tamat.

P/s : Sebenarnya nak luahkan kekecewaan yang terbuku di hati.. :'(

Song Alert : Britney Spears - Circus

Even though i haven't buy her album yet (I WILL, btw) but currently i'm listening to her songs in her website www.britneyspears.com You guys should check out all her songs, especially Circus. It's awesome! Here's the lyric..

There’s only two types of people in the world
The ones that entertain, and the ones that observe
Well baby I’m a put-on-a-show kinda girl
Don’t like the backseat, gotta be first
I’m like the ringleader
I call the shots
I’m like a firecracker
I make it hot
When I put on a show....

I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins
Spotlight on me and I’m ready to break
I’m like a performer, the dancefloor is my stage
Better be ready, hope that ya feel the same

All eyes on me in the center of the ring
Just like a circus
When I crack that whip, everybody gon' trip
Just like a circus
Don’t stand there watching me, follow me
Show me what you can do
Everybody let go, we can make a dancefloor
Just like a circus

There’s only two types of guys out there,
Ones that can hang with me, and ones that are scared
So baby I hope that you came prepared
I run a tight shift so, beware
I’m like the ringleader
I call the shots
I’m like a firecracker
I make it hot
then I put on a show

I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins
Spotlight on me and I’m ready to break
I’m like a performer, the dancefloor is my stage
Better be ready, hope that ya feel the same

All eyes on me in the center of the ring
Just like a circus
When I crack that whip, everybody gon' trip
Just like a circus
Don’t stand there watching me, follow me
Show me what you can do
Everybody let go, we can make a dancefloor
Just like a circus

Let's go.
Let me see what you can do.
I'm runnin' this (like like like like a circus)
Yeah.
Like a what? (like like like like a circus)

All eyes on me in the center of the ring
Just like a circus
When I crack that whip, everybody gon' trip
Just like a circus
Don’t stand there watching me, follow me
Show me what you can do
Everybody let go, we can make a dancefloor
Just like a circus

All eyes on me in the center of the ring
Just like a circus
When I crack that whip, everybody gon' trip
Just like a circus
Don’t stand there watching me, follow me
Show me what you can do
Everybody let go, we can make a dancefloor
Just like a circus

This is the song i'm addicted right now.. According to ET online, the music video for this song will release this Friday. Can't wait!!!

User Controls in SharePoint

Hello guys! Unlike all my previous post, today we get a bit technical.. I found a way to create a custom searching using User Controls in SharePoint 2007.. Is this what you are looking for?



1. Create .dll file
If it is, to create a custom searching like this, first you need to create a .dll file.. You can download the .dll file here. Then you place the file in your bin folder in your MOSS site. This will create a web part that can be used throughout your SharePoint site by loading UserControl created by you..

2. Create UserControls folder
Then in your MOSS directory (C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\) , create a folder called UserControls.



3. Modify web.config
Next step is, open your web.config and add this code..



4. Change your trust level from WSS_Minimal to Full
Search 4

5. Restart IIS

6. Add in your Web Part
Return to your SharePoint site, go to your Site Actions, click on Web Parts. Then, click New. Find the web parts that you've created and click on Populate Gallery. Your web parts are ready to be used.

7. Find User Controls
In your web part, place your User Control directory..


Congratulations! You now can use your user control in SharePoint.. And this include your searching function.. :)
You can read more here. Thanks Agusto Xaverius! Really save my time..

Something happened..

I don't know where to begin..
For the past few weeks has been a roller coaster..
I did something stupid, crazy, ridiculous and didn't make sense..
But then again,
I did something great, cool, amazing and very happy for it..

What is my emotional state now? Am i happy or am i sad?
I figure, i'm half on both.
I do feel happy when i'm thinking all the good staff that's been happening to me..
I do feel sad and heartbroken when i think about my life, my personal life..

"Everything's gonna be OK". That's what I've been telling myself every now and then..

There are things that you wish would turn out differently..
No matter how hard you try.. It didn't turn out like you want it to be..
Am i just gonna sit there and do nothing about it? The answer is NO.
I did my very best to get what i want..
But in the end, I just gonna accept that I can't always get what I want..
There's a reason why it didn't turn out like the way we want it to be..

It hurts, yeah. So what we do about it?
We learn.. and make the best out of it..
And next time when it happen,
We know what to do, how to deal with it..
If it still didn't work out, hopefully it wouldn't hurt so much :)

3:56 PM

What's fair in life?

Sometimes.. we want to do only the best to someone..
It becomes the worst to that someone..
Sometimes.. we love someone too much..
That someone loves you too little..
Sometimes.. we put that person very close to our heart..
That someone doesn't even care if we died..
Sometimes.. we thought of spending the rest of our live with that someone..
That someone want us out of their life..

You love somebody so much.. It becomes your fault..
You love somebody so little.. It becomes your fault..
You care too much about somebody.. It becomes your fault..
You don't care at all.. It becomes your fault..

So tell me, what's fair in life?

Nothing, except Allah S.W.T.

P/s : Never ask me what i'm talking about.

PERMATA Training & My new...

Assalamualaikum.. Hei guys.. Sihat kah? I'm fine as usual.. Dah nak puasa ni.. So.. harap² leh wat byk kebaikan.. dan juga dpt menguruskan badan.. Haha.. :P Haih.. i thought i've already finish with my PESITAS project.. but recently after we've trained to almost 30 users, there seems to be lots of request to change this and that.. add and remove stuff.. Looks like me and my senior will still be attached to this project..again..

I was really nervous when conducting the training at one of PERMATA's training room.. It was quite big.. and the users were kind of serious.. I mean.. most of them are not young.. (whom i can't flirt).. but only a few are (whom i can :D ) Haha..
Me.. conducting training.. cewah..
Here's me.. conducting training.. Haha.. You can check out the pictures of PERMATA here.

Yesterday.. I finally, finally, bought a new phone.. I haven't use nokia's phone for more than 2 years.. My last model was Nokia 7250.. Then i change to chinese made phone.. which is soo freakin boring.. So i determined to buy a new phone as soon as i had extra cash.. Alhamdulillah.. dapat jugak phone baru.. i have to take really good care of it.. Hilang kalau.. nangis x berlagu la.. waa...
My N95 8GB.. finally..
Owh one more thing.. I'm really pissed coz they gave me the user manual in SPAIN language!! How am i to understand? Ergh.. Anybody out there using this model? Do you have ENGLISH user manual? If u have, can u lend it to me for a while?..


Ok.. i gtg.. lots to do.. Selamat Berpuasa everyone!.. & saya nak meminta maaf atas semua kesalahan saya sama ada sengaja atau x and hope we start thing afresh..

After castration..

Well..it's said and done.. Both my cats has being castrated.. The night before.. They are not allowed to eat/drinks after 10 p.m. "Puasa" la mcm tu.. The next day (which is Saturday), around 10.30 a.m, we arrived at DBKL/SPCA Klinik Kembiri at Setapak.. Quite a few people there.. Each owners have more than one cats.. & their cats are fo freakin fat & cute! I wish my cat are fat and overweight.. So me, my dad and my sis wait there while they took our cat to the surgery room..

Then after about 1 hour plus, I hear a loud MEEOOOWWW.. Immediately i know that that is my youngest cat.. Their turn has arrived.. After 20 minutes or so.. both left the surgery room.. Aww.. Kesiannyer.. When i look at them, i feel so saddened.. I said to the doctor, "Dieorg ni masih hidup ke?" coz both lying there..with their eyes and mouth open.. Not moving at all.. :(( I feel so guilty..

After about 2 hours, then only my youngest cat moved a bit.. But cound't stand still and keep falling.. My elder cat is still sleeping and drooling.. Cute..but sad.. :( Both took the whole day and night to recover.. Thankfully, they are quite OK now.. :) Although their backside is still red until today, but Pejai said it is normal.. God Almighty, please make them recover asap.. and make them live longer :)

3:03 PM

Training, Farewell, Cats..

Finally i'm pushing myself to update my blog.. I'm quite lazy to update it because the internet here sucks and plus, I had no idea what to talk about.. So as the title goes, that's what I'm going to write as for now..

I've recently completed my training at InfoTrek Amcorp Mall.. Where i learn Advance SharePoint 2007, ASP.Net 3.5 in Visual Studio 2008 and ADO.Net 3.5 also in VS 2008.. I enjoyed SharePoint and ASP.. ADO, not so much.. Should i elaborate more? Well, in SharePoint training, we learned mostly to code in VS 2008 and integrate it with SharePoint. Like ASP.Net, we can built our own User Control, build new customized Web Parts, templates, skins and join together with SQL Server.. There's a lot more coz' the training took us 5 days.. but i'm lazy to write it all down.. U can just YM me about it.. and i'll tell you the grandmother story :) And for those of u who are familiar with LINQ, then you'll have no problem in understanding ADO.. coz LINQ extends on ADO anyway..


So next topic.. Farewell.. not my farewell.. but my current boss farewell.. Bernard.. How sad i was when i heard he's been relocate to other department.. :( HE IS THE BEST BOSS EVER! He's not like any other boss.. He's your mentor, your big brother, your partner in crime and your friend.. and sometimes he can become such a clown.. There's one time where i was seriously consider to change to other department, but i didn't because i know i couldn't get any other boss who are better than him :( But, dah xde jodoh kan.. So i wish him all the best.. YOU ARE THE GREATEST BOSS a "kuli" like us could ever have.. You guys can view the farewell party we throw for him at my
Flickr.


Tomorrow InsyaAllah, i'm going to take both my male cats to "sunat" (Castration) them.. Haha.. Although it's painful i'm sure, but it's for their own good.. I want my cats to be all cute and fat! But my main intention is for their health.. I want them to live longer.. So that my child (errrr..) can play with them.. Tomorrow morning, me and my dad will take them to Klinik Kembiri which located at Setapak.. Each cat costs about RM 45.. and we'll see what more they can offer.. For the past few weeks, i've been reading lots of religious opinion regarding castration of cats.. I've found one that is convincing from SPCA and leads me to take this action.. Here goes :-


According to the experts, neutered cats are healthier and less prone cancerous of the reproductive organs. Cats become less likely to wander and will therefore not get lost, hurt, sick and not incur the wrath of the public from their mating activities.

We have referred to the "Jawatankuasa Kemajuan Islam Malaysia" regarding the neutering of pets. Below is the "fatwa" issued by JAKIM (July 2002):

"All pets like cats and dogs are allowed to be neutered or spayed in order to maintain the health and welfare of both the animals and the community."

"Bahawa mengembiri binatang kesayangan seperti kucing atau anjing hukumnya adalah diharuskan dengan sebab-sebab tertentu iaitu bagi menjaga muslahat ummah."

After studying the messages of the aforementioned "mazhab"s and the medical viewpoint of the SPCA animal experts, 'JAKIM' has decided that neutering of cats for reasons of 'maslahat' is acceptable. It is in agreement with 'qaedah' (way) Fiqhiyyah which states "To choose the lesser of two evils"

So.. hopefully, i made the right decisions.. :) I would appreciate your opinions btw..


I guess that's all for today.. Have a nice weekend everyone!

If it isn't meant to be, then it isn't meant to be :) I don't know how far this relationship is going to last but i hope for the best.. I'm happy with Sammy..

Tag Board

Assalamualaikum.. Today, I am going to add a tag board / shoutbox to my blog.. A lot of people had already asked me to place a tag board in my blog because they can insert their comments and what not.. Actually there are reasons why i didn't do this earlier..

You see, i've already had a blog since the last 4 or 5 years.. The first blog i've ever created was this http://massspectrometry.blogspot.com/ and i really love it.. I put a whole lot of effort for this blog, to make it become presentable, creative and sweet.. (Fyi, i'm no longer using that blog).. And of coz, i had my own shoutbox from oggix. (For some reason, oggix is banned in Petronet *sigh*)

So basically, at that time, there are people who just can't stop annoying me.. They always visits my blog, leave nasty comments, putting inappropriate advertisements, the list can go on.. and they just can't leave me alone.. So everyday i had to check my shoutbox, clean up those comments and banned them.. It is so tiring.. That is why i don't place shoutbox anymore..

Hopefully at this time, there won't be cases like that.. :)

Song Alert : David Cook - Always Be My Baby

Hi there.. I'm really free rite now.. I don't have any project atm :( I feel like a loser.. Anyway, today's entry is about this song.. which i heard months back.. I really like it since the first time i heard David Cook singing it.. Actually, I first heard this song when Sammy play it and sang it to me.. And that's why i like it so much! And so does Sammy.. I dedicate this song especially to him..

David Cook

We were as one babe
For a moment in time
And it seemed everlasting
That you would always be mine
Now you want to be free yeah
So I’m letting you fly
Cause I know in my heart babe
Our love will never die, no!

You’ll always be a part of me
I’m a part of you indefinitely
Girl don’t you know you can’t escape me
Ooh darling cause you’ll always be my baby
And we’ll linger on
Time can’t erase a feeling this strong
No way you’re never gonna shake me
Ooh darling cause you’ll always be my baby

I ain’t gonna cry no
And I won’t beg you to stay
If you’re determined to leave girl
I will not stand in your way
But inevitably you’ll be back again
Cause ya know in your heart babe
Our love will never end noo...

Chorus:
You’ll always be a part of me (oooohhhh)
I’m part of you indefinitely (oooohhhh)
Girl don’t you know you can’t escape me (ooooohhhhhh)
Ooh darlin cause you’ll always be my baby
And we’ll linger on (and we will linger on)
Time cant erase a feeling this strong (ohhhh)
No way you’re never gonna shake me (oh baby)
Ooh darlin cause you’ll always be my baby

I know that you’ll be back girl
When your days and your nights get a little bit colder oooohhh
I know that, you’ll be right back, babe
Ooooh! baby believe me it’s only a matter of time

You’ll always be apart of me
I’m part of you indefinitely
Girl don’t you know you can’t escape me
Ooh darling cause you’ll always be my baby
And we’ll linger on
Time can’t erase a feeling this strong
No way you’re never gonna shake me
Ooh darling cause you’ll always be my my baby…

You’ll always be apart of me (you will always be)
Girl don’t you know you can’t escape me
Ooh darling cause you’ll always be my baby
And we’ll linger on (we will linger on…)
Time can’t erase a feeling this strong
No way you’re never gonna shake me
Ooh darling cause you’ll always be my baby

After PESITAS UAT & 1st Tagged

Assalamualaikum.. Hi there.. Today i'm going to update my blog.. 1stly coz, i haven't update for a long time (not unless u count my last entry..which i wrote as a way for me to express my anger..), 2ndly coz, i've been tagged by Dayah.. well.. we all know the rules.. if we got tagged, we had to it.. hehe.. So i'm gonna start my entry with this tagged here..

LIST OUT TOP 5 PRESENTS YOU WISH FOR & THE REASONS FOR YOUR CHOICE


1. A new phone!
iPhone
I seriously need this one :( The reason is because my current phone is soo boring. My dad bought me this chinese phone.. N the only cool thing about it is, it can store 2 sim card, touch screen and kinda thin.. I can't mms, can't gprs with it, no bluetooth, no infrared.. n surely, no 3G.. Since i just join the Celcom 1+3 plan, it would be a waste if i don't use those facilities.. The phone i had in mind is of coz, iPhone 3G.. But if this phone is not available until August, i think i'm just gonna grab any phone with a big display screen + 3G..


2. A free-for-a-lifetime airlines tickets to KK, Sabah.

Air Asia
One reason only, Sammy :( Everytime i think about him, it makes me want to relocate to Sabah.. coz it's nearer to him and i wouldn't have to miss him so much.. I hate missing him.. Even though i know i can relocate there, it would jeopardize my career :( I wouldn't want that.. and he wouldn't want that.. So if i could just have this thing i wish for.. I would be the happiest person on earth :D


3. The new Mercedes C Class

Mercedes C Class
OMG! Who on earth would want to give me that?! Even in my dreams, no one would!.. But seriously.. I would love to have this car.. It's really f**king expensive though.. One day, maybe.. I have this car.. But it doesn't matter.. I love my Kelisa..


4. A cat

Cute Cat
Owh well.. I wish I had a cat.. My mom forbids me from having a cat though.. I used to have 2 cats.. called Kit and Kat.. one died and another one missing.. really breaks my heart though.. and since then, i never had a cat.. but i would love to have a cat.. and Sammy loves cat! He looks like he can make out with them.. Haha.. kiddin' :p


5. My own apartment at KL

Apartment
This one, i'm gonna ask from my dad!.. Haha.. Abah, pls pls bought me an apartment in KL.. I can't afford it :(( Waaaaaa :((


IMPRESSIONS OF HER - Dayah


1. Adik Marini
2. She likes Harry Potter! Just like me!
3. Sweetest gurl i've ever met.
4. Bright
5. Patient & sometimes too soft

MOST MEMORABLE THING SHE HAS DONE FOR YOU

1. She always listen to my problem.
2. She cooked for me.
3. She always let me eat her food.
4. She always had time for me.
5. Well.. i can't imagine my life without her.

I guess that's all for my tagged.. Today i finished my UAT with PETRONAS Steam and Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) Training and Assessment Scheme (PESITAS).. It was ok.. We conduct it for two days starting last monday.. Finally, my first .Net project are over.. I'm so relief.. I know i suck at it.. but i learned a lot.. And i'm looking forward for more .Net project so that i can polish my skills.. and hopefully I stop being stupid this time.. :(


Well.. that's all for now.. I want to paste a few of my codings here but it keeps giving me error.. It's ok.. i'll see what i can do. In the mean time, take care!

5:47 PM

Now it feels like the real world..

This is actually the first time my boss sound me off for being not clever :(( It hurts.. yeah.. I feel down for a couple of hours before I can pull myself back together.. I admit, i sucks badly.. I need to prove myself that i'm better.. I can do .Net and i'm gonna be good at it.. go me!

P/s : Today dh sebulan i'm with Sammy.. rasa mcm dh setahun pula :p

Song Alert : Taylor Swift - Teardrops of My Guitar

Hei everyone! I've decided that i'm going to have a Song Alert corner everytime i feels that there's a song that sounds really good to me.. Not just the melody, but also the lyrics.. I always like a song with good lyrics that actually mean something rather than a song with nice rhythm, melody but couldn't understand what the meaning of it.. Anyway, it's just my two-cents.. :D

So i heard this song couple of weeks ago in my fave radio station, Fly Fm.. & i don't know why, but i can picture myself singing this.. (It would be cool if i know how to play a guitar :) )And i like to clear up something.. I wasn't thinking of anybody when i heard this songs or any other songs for that matter.. It's touches me somehow but no one in particular.. Gosh, do i make any sense? Hehe..

So below are the lyrics, her picture and a link you can download the song.. I didn't realize that she is soo pretty.. I saw her in E! and if i'm not mistaken, she picked up a couple of awards from the recent Country Music Award show.. Congrats to her! Enjoy!..

Taylor Swift

Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won't see
That I want and I'm needing everything that we should be
I'll bet she's beautiful, that girl he talks about
And she's got everything that I have to live without

Drew talks to me, I laugh cause it's just so damn funny
That I can't even see anyone when he's with me
He says he's so in love, he's finally got it right,
I wonder if he knows he's all I think about at night

Chorus :
He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do

Drew walks by me, can he tell that I can't breathe?
And there he goes, so perfectly,
The kind of flawless I wish I could be
She'd better hold him tight, give him all her love
Look in those beautiful eyes and know she's lucky cause

He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do

So I drive home alone, as I turn out the light
I'll put his picture down and maybe
Get some sleep tonight

He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only one who's got enough of me to break my heart
He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do
He's the time taken up, but there's never enough
And he's all that I need to fall into..

Drew looks at me, I fake a smile so he won't see

You can download the song here. I noticed that the version I had is different from the radio version. If anyone had the radio version, pls email them to me. Thanks!

Results + Dinner

Assalamualaikum.. Hello World!.. Haha.. Hi, how you've been? It feels like thousand years ago since i last update my blog.. My friends were like, "When are going to update it?".. I've been really busy with my projects guys.. Last time, i used to update my blog at my office coz i can still steal spare time.. But now, i'm quite bz lor..

Thank God my house finally have internet access.. I'm using Maxis Broadband rite now.. As usual, i have lots to talk about.. I know it's wayyy back, but i want to stress something regarding our election results.. And also, the 70's & 80's dinner we had.. and whatever that comes to my mind rite now.. Haha..

Let's start with our election results.. It comes as somewhat shocking.. BN was denied a 2/3 majority.. And losing 5 country to the so called "Barisan Rakyat".. It's a good thing because we really practice democratic.. Like Dr. M said "We had to have an opposition. We feel like we are doing everything right whereas the opposition will tell us that what we did are wrong".. BN are getting big headed and someone need to slap them in the face.. And i strongly believe that "Barisan Rakyat" wins not because they are the stronger party, but because of BN weaknesses.. All BN need to do know is gain people's trust back.. And fix what need to be fixed.. End of story ;)

A few weeks ago, our company had a 70's 80's revival dinner and dance which took place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.. I don't know about others but i absolutely enjoying myself the entire night.. A lot of people came.. n they are really cool.. I can see a lot of afro's hair everywhere.. As for myself, i'm going as a hippies.. So i'm wearing pink polka dot dress with glittering butterfly slack.. It was really fun.. Can't wait for the next dinner.. This is a pic of my department members..

70's 80's Revival Dinner & Dance

On 26th March, I attend a Microsoft training at the Microsoft Malaysia office which is located at Level 29, Tower 2, Petronas Twin Tower where i learned about IIS 7.0 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008.. You can download the powerpoint slide here (I'll update the link soon. Still waiting for the slide from the Microsoft people). And this 5th & 6th April, i have another training there. This time it's about SQL Server 2008..

And finally, my favorite sports, the F1 grand prix! I am so happy that BMW is leading for the constructors championship.. Yeah i know i know.. Only 1 points ahead.. But, this is the first time BMW has been ahead of Ferrari & Mclaren!.. I am so excited.. BMW could be the next best thing! after Ferrari of course ;) .. My hubby, Nick Heidfeld is doing fine.. Although we haven't see him in the podium..yet.. But he's second to Kimi with 16 points so far.. And Robert Kubica is at fourth place with 14 points.. Go team BMW!! For mor info go to Petronas Motorsports website here.

Well, i guess that's all for now. Have a nice day everyone!

Say Goodbye - Jordan Knight Feat. Deborah Gibson

I listened to this song a few weeks ago and i fell in love since then.. I just love the lyrics.. the melody.. the combination of Jordan and Deborah feels just right.. The lyrics sounds like they're debating with each other.. but in a nice manner... I love it! Check out the lyrics.. You'll understand what this song means..

#Jordan#
Yeah
I’ve been so lost lately
I don’t really understand baby
Where did I go wrong
I wanna talk to you
Please call
#Deborah#
Where do I begin with you
after all that we’ve been through

I don’t think that it would be right if we

got together so suddenly

#Jordan#
I wish that I could take back all the things that I said
and replace them with simply I love you instead

#Deborah#
You don’t wanna say goodbye
But you never really seem like you wanna try

#Jordan#
But I only wanted you to stay
then I let you just slip away
#Deborah#
If you didn’t listen to your heart inside
then it really doesn’t matter what was on your mind

and if you need me then tell me why

#Jordan#
Girl, I never meant to say goodbye
Mmm Oh yeah

#Jordan#
I think about the past baby
Why we couldn’t make it last, lady
I know you still have doubts
But I’m gonna prove that we can work things out
#Deborah#
I wanna be sure that you know what you put me through
and reveal that you intend to never let me down again

#Jordan#
It’s clear to me and I can’t ignore
that I have to give you something I couldn’t before

#Deborah#
You don’t wanna say goodbye
But you never really seem like you wanna try

#Jordan#
But I only wanted you to stay
then I let you just slip away
#Deborah#
If you didn’t listen to your heart inside
then it really doesn’t matter what was on your mind

and if you need me then tell me why

#Jordan#
Girl, I never meant to say goodbye

#Deborah#
I didn’t think that we would come to this
#Jordan#
Ooh, no
Your eyes, your face, your smile is what I miss
#Deborah#
Why’d you wait so long to take me back
#Deborah & Jordan#
It’s all a simple misunderstanding

#Deborah#
You don’t wanna say goodbye
But you never really seem like you wanna try (Never wanna try)

#Jordan#
But I only wanted you to stay
then I let you just slip away
#Deborah#
If you didn’t listen to your heart inside
then it really doesn’t matter what was on your mind

and if you need me then tell me why

#Jordan#

Girl, I never meant to say goodbye

#Deborah#
You don’t wanna say goodbye
But you never really seem like you wanna try (But I never meant to say)

#Jordan#
But I only wanted you to stay
then I let you just slip away
#Deborah#
If you didn’t listen to your heart inside (Never meant to see you cry, never meant to say)
then it really doesn’t matter what was on your mind

and if you need me then tell me why

#Jordan#
Girl, I never meant to say goodbye

Election, my opinion

Assalamualaikum.. Hey everyone. Been bz? I've been extremely bz this past few weeks. I feel like an elf.. Not that i'm complaining or anything.. It's just..I'm kinda tired..mentally.. But, hey.. what do expect from working life..

I have so much to say especially with the election coming in.., the problem I (always) had with Touch N Go.., and our oil prices.. I hope I can get all my thoughts down by today.. First, i want to start with our coming election..

Before this, i am a big supporter of our government.. mainly Barisan Nasional.. I think they did a great job making our country where we are today.. I can't imagine if other party were to lead our country, we would accomplished such things.. Barisan Nasional is right by saying "We are on the right track".. Yes, they do..

Y? Here's the thing.. This party consists of 3 popular sub-party.. as we all know, UMNO, MCA & MIC.. If this party win, the Prime Minister must be from UMNO.. But think about this, if Barisan Alternative wins, who do they select as Prime Minister? Because, correct me if i'm wrong, as far as I know, anyone from that party can run our country right? I'm not trying to be a races here.. But I hope, it will be someone who can still protect our special Bumiputera's right..

Recently, people have been posting a lot of stuff regarding BN.. (the bad side of course).. How wealthy they are.. Increase of price for everything.. 5ok for a plat number.. If you really sit down and think about it, if someone really had a lot of money, wouldn't they want to spend it? Wouldn't they want a bigger house? Wouldn't they want a better life? What's your guarantee that if the people from Barisan Alternative gets really rich, they wouldn't do exactly the same? As for the increases of price.. if Barisan Alternative takes over, the price wouldn't increase at all?

In my opinion, I don't care what they do with their money.. Because we, tend to "forget" once we become very rich.. Melayu mudah lupa.. that's the word.. & I'm not saying it applies for others.. It applies for myself too.. I myself IF I get extremely rich, I can't guarantee i wouldn't buy a plat number for even RM100k if it had the numbers i like.. Coz I'm am filthy rich.. I am capable to buy that.. (Remember, I said IF)..

People nowdays are bringing all the bad side of BN.. Have you ever think about the good side? How about the bad side of the other party? Like Keadilan for example.. The party was build based on "Individual benefits" and not for our country benefits.. How could this party guide us? What are their agenda's? If they were to win, where would they direct our country? I can't imagine what would happen to us if this party lead us.. And the most importantly, who will lead us? How do they select the Prime Minister? Some said it will be the majority.. What if the majority is not Bumiputera? or to be specific, it is not Malay? Do you think we Malay can be where we are today?

I don't have so much to say about PAS.. But how could they join Barisan Alternative? It is just so wrong.. So off their track.. As for DAP, well.. All i can think of, if this party win.. Our special rights as Bumiputera's will definitely gone..

However, there are a few things that i do not agree with the people inside BN.. The party is OK.. but the people inside.. Especially Pak Lah and his famous son-in-law.. I mean.. I have heard nothing but negative things about them both.. I'm not gonna say anything about Pak Lah.. I have a lot of respect for him.. He's our Prime Minister.. But who is Khairy Jamaluddin (from now on refer as KJ) ? Just because he is the son-in-law of our Prime Minister, he conquers everything? And why are you competing for the election? Money is not enough for you? And now you want power?

I once took a cab from KLIA to my house.. The taxi driver, 50 years old Chinese man, was really friendly.. We talked all the way from the start of our journey to the end of it.. He said, he really admire our previous Prime Minister.. (no need to say who).. & he hates KJ.. He told me that in KLIA, there's a taxi service.. where he works.. and after that, KJ opens a bus service right next to it and it slows down the taxi business.. And a friend of mine told me that his company actually got hold on one project tender, then suddenly, that tender went to KJ.. I'm sure there are millions of stories like this rite? That's why I hate him.. He conquers everything! Why not help others to be successful as well? KJ, in case you read this, no one stays up for long.. so be prepared to fall..

To sums up my election thoughts, I do hope BN wins the majority, but i would like to see other party to win as well.. So that BN will know they are are losing their supporters.. You know, we should really be united and have one goal and one goal only.. To lead Malaysia the best way possible without neglecting moral values and people around us.. (that's my quotes! Haha!)

I still haven't written down my thoughts on Touch N Go services and the increase of oil prices.. Because it's already 5.50 p.m. and i'm tired... But i'll do it one day..once i'm free.. My message to all, do your part to the country by voting.. Some people don't care at all.. You must realize, your vote determines the future of your country and your own future..

Happy electing! And have a nice day..

20 Things I'm Glad Life Taught Me

Assalamualaikum w.b.t everyone.. How are you? Hope y'all are doin' great.. Last week i've been so busy that i don't even have time for myself.. Every minute my mind is racing with coding, interfaces, user's expectation, documentation and whole lots of others.. Today i'm a bit free because i finished my work 7 days earlier. So hopefully no work for me ;) But it's impossible here..

As usual, i do my digg, and i come across this article, "20 Things I'm Glad Life Taught Me".. and i like it.. All of them are excellent and i agree with it.. Books doesn't teach us as much as life itself.. Sometimes we failed miserably, sometimes we had success beyond our expectation.. I like this quote from the Jerry Maguire movie, he said "I failed as much as I succeed".. It makes you think that in life, nothings come easy.. What important is that, you learn from your mistakes, failures and developed yourself from there.. Like my friend once said, "Life is Development".. Here are the 20 lists from the article "20 Things I'm Glad Life Taught Me" :
  1. You must create and look for opportunities : Opportunities rarely ever come knocking on the door of someone who's not seeking them. You have to create and seek opportunities for yourself. You have to take the initiative to get the ball rolling and the doors opening.
  2. Negativity will only bring more of it : When you focus only on negativity, obviously that's all you will see. You will not seek out positivity, and even when positivity comes into your life, you'll look for the negative part of it.
  3. Where you are does not determine where you can go : It doesn't matter if you're homeless or living in a mansion, poor or rich, or if you have a 4.0 grade point average or "failing", it won't make any difference in the future. There are countless rags to riches stories to back this point up. If you have the drive and talents, you can go anywhere. You create your own limitations and horizon.
  4. If you can't help others, you can't help yourself : Even if it's just to hold the door for someone or some other simple gesture, it will do wonders for your life. You'll feel great and you'll eventually be returned the favor sometime during your life, whether you realize it or not. If you don't want to help others, then others won't want to help you, and nor should they.
  5. Follow your passion, money will follow : If you have passion and have fun doing your job, then I wouldn't consider it a job. You can focus on creating even more passion for that subject and money will eventually follow you. If you focus only on the money, it won't come because you're focused on the quantity of your work and not the quality.
  6. Enjoy yourself : Have fun as much as possible, don't take everything so seriously. Push your worries aside and bring enjoyment closer.
  7. If it were easy everyone would do it : This is why get rich quick schemes will never be true. If it was so quick and easy then everyone would be millionaires. Making money and accomplishing tasks is hard work, but well worth it.
  8. Planning is good but so is being spontaneous : Planning ahead in business and in life is important but so is being able to quickly change that plan. Various people and events will get in the way of your plans, so you have to be able to modify or forget your plans at times. Be spontaneous once and awhile, it makes life interesting. (Everyone knows I'm a planner, so I need to work out on this one :D )
  9. You have many talents : You may be a talented athlete or musician but you probably have ten more talents you don't even know about. When people find something they're good at, they only focus on that instead of seeing what else they can do.
  10. Don't work hard without rewards : What's the point of working hard to follow your dreams if you aren't going to treat yourself along the way. Each little or big goal you accomplish should be rewarded with a proportionate treat, maybe a day off or a big slice of cake.
  11. Money does bring happiness : As I said, you shouldn't be chasing money but when you do earn it, you know you've been accomplishing something. It feels great and brings you happiness because you know you'll have more freedom and time to do what you want.
  12. Someone always has it worse : At times you may be having a bad day, but stop yourself and think about it; there has to be millions of other people are having a worse day than you.
  13. You'll need others : Make as many friends as you possibly can and never burn bridges. You will need others for your success.
  14. Being open-minded is the key to more knowledge : If you want to know more about the world you have to be open-minded. Give everything a chance.
  15. Failure is great : One of the most important, if not the most important steps to success is failure. You have to fail at least once, but it's better if you've failed multiple times. You can learn so much more from your failures than you could any other way. And when you finally achieve success, you'll appreciate it so much more.
  16. Most people are actually nice : This is something I've only recently realized. Most people are nice, but not usually to strangers. Once they get to know you and you get to know them, they will most likely seem like very nice people.
  17. Words and thoughts control everything : What you say and think will ultimately become reality. If you say you're going to fail, then you will because you'll find a way to make it happen. If you say you're going to succeed, the same will happen, you'll find a way.
  18. Your view is the reality : How you see an event or situation is how it exists. If you see something as tragic and negative then that's what it means to you. If you see something as exciting and positive, then that's what it is.
  19. Inspiration and motivation are everywhere : I don't care where you are, there is something there that can motivate and inspire you. You can be at war is some far away country, in horrible conditions, but there will be something there to keep you going and strive for something better. You just have to recognize it and keep it with you.
  20. You can change the world : Every single person has the ability to change the world whether directly or indirectly. When you change your life and the lives of those around you, you've changed the world. Small things that you do can make a huge impact on the world.
So what do you guys think? Maybe you agree with some of it or none, but i agree with all.. My personal favorite is No.15.. The reason is because i went to one major breakdown and i just thought that was the end of my life.. It takes a lot of courage, support, confidence and faith for me to stand up again.. I never want to go through that again.. One is enough, one is painful..

I hope you guys enjoy my post!.. Have a nice weekend!

P/s : I also like the last one.."You can change the world".. Yes, you can ;)

How to Make People Like You?

Assalamualaikum.. Hi all.. How r u? I'm doin' great this couple of days.. The project I'm involved which is with Ethylene & Polyethylene is almost over.. We did UAT (User Acceptance Test) last Tuesday and it went ok.. But it looks like i have to go to Kerteh again to train them.. I like going there especially if i got to stay at Awana resort.. But it's too quiet.. I'll go crazy if i had to work there forever.. Hehehe..

Today, i want to post something about "How to Make People Like You".. I used to have a BIG problem on this.. I remember when i was doing my diploma, people said that i'm so NOT approachable.. that i'm not friendly and i'm very arrogant.. The thing is, back then, i don't really like to smile.. and i only talk to people i know.. and i had no intentions to be likeable.. I'm like.. This is me, if you don't like it, do i look like i care?.. (poyo x? Haha..)

But as you get mature, learned from your experiences..., making people like you is very important.. It IS important for many reasons.. As for career perspective, to get promoted, to get a good review, to asks for opinion and to be able to approach anyone for help.. Personally, you become more confident, you have many friends, people will want to know you and more importantly, you feel good about yourself.. I found a few articles that you can read on ways to make people like you..

  • As for the first time meeting, it is important to 'look' like a friendly and attractive person - and this does not mean you have to have 'film star' looks or 'cat-walk' clothes! What it does mean, however, is that you need to look open, honest, friendly, outgoing and 'as if you care' about your appearance.
  • You also need to be aware that you do not look as if you are wrapped up in yourself, or distracted in some way. When meeting a new person it is vital that you show you are interested in them.
  • This means making appropriate physical contact in an appropriate and positive way, maybe this will mean shaking hands or even possibly greeting people in a slightly more 'intimate' way. But you need to appear confident and positive in all these things in order to start the process of conveying likeableness in the right way
  • It is really important to make direct eye-to-eye contact with someone when you are introduced - which means looking at them in a straight and 'real' way, right into their eyes - accompanied by a warm and genuine smile. If you are lacking in confidence, and do not normally find yourself as a naturally 'smiley' person you need to make some serious effort in this area - whilst making sure that you do not give an impression of falseness, or 'overdoing' it as this will likely have the opposite effect to that you desire.
  • The next 'big thing' that will influence people is when you start to speak. You need to have a lively and pleasant tone to your voice. Sadly some folks develop a monotonous, or dull sound to their voice. Maybe they talk in a squeaky or affected way. In this matter you need to be truly self-critical and, if you feel you are lacking, you need to make an effort to develop better speaking-voice qualities. It can be done - actors and actresses do it for a living, and once you develop confidence in yourself and the way you sound many of the other attributes of 'likeableness' will fall into place.
  • If you have managed to make the right first visual and aural impression on a new person you are already well on the way to being 'instantly likeable'. The rest will depend on how your first conversation goes. The key to this is to remember that people 'like' to be asked about themselves, their lives, their likes and dislikes - in other words THEY like to feel the center of attention. They DO NOT like having to listen to the tales of the 'great I am', nor do they like to have the conversation monopolized so they cannot get a word in.
  • If you can strike a good balance (minimum 60% to 40% in their favor maximum about 80/20) when it comes to who is doing the most talking, this will go a long way to making you 'instantly likeable' most people like a 'good listener'.
  • One of the biggest tips for being liked is to try to develop a natural, warm friendly smile that you use liberally. People like 'happy people' who are fun to be with. Time and again both men and women agree that they are most attracted to people who can make them laugh (BUT don't get carried away and feel you need to learn the contents of a 'joke book' - the laughter needs to be natural and light to work best!)
  • Focus on the other! Always make sure you are focusing on the person you are with and making them feel the center of your attention - create a virtual 'bubble' of attention around them - including being aware of any indication that they may be uncomfortable for any reason and trying to deal with it (this could range from causes such as touching on 'awkward' topics of conversation to steer away from, to them sitting in a draught!) When this happens naturally do what is necessary to defuse their discomfort.
  • Remember that you need to keep your posture open and friendly at all times. For instance, folding your arms whilst talking is a 'no no' because it creates a psychological barrier'. But holding a persons gaze whilst they talk, and showing you are listening intently through nods and sounds of agreement as appropriate are really important ‘signs’ that you are truly focussed on them.
  • Make sure you look good, people don't want to be friends with weird badly dressed, bad smelling, or just plain dumb people.
  • Generally speaking, most of us already have good humor. We laugh with our friends. Simply, use it more, even look for ways to use it more. Tell a joke, however badly then laugh at yourself, if it is THAT bad.The world is serious enough without all of us contributing even more. I choose to like people who are of good humor.
  • I believe people like being valued and a well placed compliment shows them that you value them. Other compliment-rich areas include: anything about their kids, their thoughtfulness, their thinking process, their departments, teams, company, their skills, even their voice.
  • We have known people who apparently listen but have that what-I-am-doing-here vacant look in their eyes. By training yourself to listen, and acknowledge and then add value you will be a better listener than 90% of all adults. By listening better, even if you don’t get to say too much in a one-sided conversation, people will think you are quite smart for taking such an active interest in what they are saying.
  • People who are willing to do new things, consider others’ viewpoints, or learn some new skill are generally more interesting and likeable. There are some people who won’t try a new restaurant or a new food or a new type of entertainment. We are all different, sure. I don’t like opera music on the radio. But if someone invited me to attend a local opera, I would go. Ok, I might not. We all have likes and dislikes. But the more you are willing to accept change and are viewed as flexible and adaptable, you will be obviously more likeable.
  • Use open body language. Uncover your heart by leaving your jacket or coat unbuttoned and facing the other person.
  • Be first with eye contact. Look the other person straight in the eye.
  • Beam a smile.
  • Be the first to identify yourself with a pleasant, “Hi! I’m Nick.”
  • Lean subtly toward the other person to show your interest and openness
