One colleague just left the company today due to unhappiness with what was going in the office. Our management always have trouble retaining people, this management kinda bad, implementing policies that cause them problems.

Guess i will be the next to tender my resignation.

Ínteresting blog

Tuesday, July 29, 2008 / Comments (0) / by sw

I have been searching for a nice template for my blog but then i guessed i am too fussy, i can't find anything i like.

That's me. It always takes time for me to find something i really like.

But anyway, saw this nice and interesting blog here:

Why MHA isn't keen on a bounty?

Friday, July 25, 2008 / Comments (0) / by sw

I don't understand.

I know that it's every citizen's to help in searching for Mas Selamat, but then a little reward would do no harm. Instead the MHA said that they will not give reward but have no issue about rewards coming from the public.

Why does the people have to bear such cost?

It's the MHA's responsibilty to ensure that we are safe and shouldn't they do anything to find that man? Selamat could already have left the country and the reward came a little too late.

MHA should really be more open to such schemes.

Prom night 2008

Went to watch this movie at GV. I didn't get to enjoy the thriller at all, predictable plot, psycho killer not crazy enough.

If i were to choose again, then i will leave this movie out. I won't even rent the DVD, it basically sux.

Look at this stupid burglar

You know what i am referring to. NKF follows by Renci, i will still want to help some needy, perhaps this time i shall put my money in government's charity like comchest.

To be frank, i am not a charitable person but sometimes when i watched those charity shows, the plead of the patients really moved me. High profile organisations are problematic, i hope this monk is really innocent. You know what i meant.

He did all those stunts on TV, climb buildings, enveloped himself with ice cubes, walk around one of the tallest building in Singapore all for the sake of raising funds for his patients but then, scandals happened.

If he is really guilty then, this is BS! Do all those stuff to cheat the public.

Well, i really hope he is innocent.

Charity shows have a bad name now. What about those patients?

This is sad.

Nice cloud. Pic taken by E71

Tuesday, July 15, 2008 / Comments (0) / by sw

Caught this outside my house on Saturday. Looks like a trail left behind by a plane, but it stays for quite awhile. Usually plane's trail disappears shortly it flew by, but this stays for like 10 mins or more.

Shot through the clouds like a spearhead.

By the way, this photo was taken by Nokia E71. The image quality is bad for a 3.2 mgp cam.

Time to change my blog?

Saturday, July 12, 2008 / Comments (2) / by sw

I have written about this before, but i am just too lazy to do anything about it.

I will do it maybe next month or in September when i update my investment blog. My funds are in red now as well as my stocks. The market's choppiness is going to last a long time, esepcially when there are rumours that China's economic is going down after the Olympic.

We will see by my next update how i fare for the 2nd last quarter of the year.

Selamat in Indonesia?????

Damn. It's quite possible that he had already say goodbye to us. LOSE FACE BIG TIME. The whole country searches for him but he could just leave??

I hope the assumption isn't true.

ISD find them soon.

Hellboy 2

Saturday, July 12, 2008 / Comments (0) / by sw

Watched Hellboy 2 today, the movie isn't too bad. The CG is good but storyline is so-so, at most average. Did the producer included some kungfu flick? The prince was doing somersault as if he is in some kungfu movie.

An Ok movie only. I am keeping my fingers crossed for the Dark Knight. Ironman and Spiderman are somehow difficult to surpass.

If i have a choice, i would rather rent the DVD when it's out for Hellboy 2.

I am a Machiavellian

Thursday, July 10, 2008 / Comments (0) / by sw

*Grin* Did 2 tests, the results vary, but none is good...hahaha, what could you expect if you are doing tests like this.

First test

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!

Second test

Score 37-50
High Machiavellian. You are classified by the test as High Machiavellian. Practical to the point of being a hardheaded cynic, not very trusting of human nature, andready to deal with what is, rather than what ought to be.High Machiavellians are pragmatic, maintain emotional distance, believe that the end justify the means. Generally High Machiavelliansmanipulate more, are persuaded less and can persuade others more. High Machiavellians flourish in face-to-face situations, in situations withminimal rules and regulations.High Machiavellians can be successful in jobs where bargaining or negotiation are key or where commission is involved.

I scored 37, just made it to the high side and that's not a piece of good news.
Did it out of curiousity.

Lousy F1 service

Bought my ticket in June at Singpost, and was told that i could collect my ticket anytime in July. But when i went down to singpost last saturday, i was told that the ticket has yet arrived. I coulnd't collect then.

The manager wanted me to leave my contact so she could call me when the ticket arrived.

This is bad. It was also printed on my receipt that the ticket can be collected in July. Have to call and check this weekend.

Anyway, i just borrowed a book "Dialogue in Hell", a machiavellian book. Just started reading, not too bad. Anyone who agrees with Machiavelli should consider this book.

How time flies

It's already halfway through the year 2008, time moves so fast that i hardly realised it. Sometimes we just take time for granted and we knew that time waits for no one.

I am going to add 1 more year to my age in a couple of months time. Hmm... maybe it's time for me to settle down, but i am still enjoying my life now. Freedom is priceless! So much more could have been achieved.

How long more to retirement?? I am tired of work already, not in the near future at least..... maybe it's my job. It's hard to persist without passion. Do i enjoy going to the office everyday? Do i enjoy my work? NAH. I will have to find a job soon, before the end of the year, been dragging this for too long already.

I failed my quit smoking resolution..:( i will try again tho.

I am going to watch this movie!!

Coming soon on 10 Jul 2008. Help me eros....taiwanese adult movie.

Got myself a Nokia E71 today to get a 6 month subscription-free promotion, i won't be paying sub fees for the next 6 months from now.

Got the phone after a $150 off.

I have not been using nokia phone for about hmm... 10 years? This is the second time i am using.

Dumping my old phone.....................

I can take a rest now

Euro 2008 is OVER! Missed my sleep, goodbye to swollen eyes. Didn't win anything for euro bet, i actually bought Holland to win the champ, but then football is so unpredictable.

Spain won, they played good football, the final was entertaining. Good game.


Now i can go to sleep early.

Getting a new phone soon, the one which i have been waiting until my neck long, Nokia E71, nice and sleek. $498 now, quite cheap.

Going shopping this weekend. I won't be going to the tailoer this month, tailored too many clothes, i could hardly fit into some of them because i have put on some weight.

Lotsa things to do over the weekend. But it's still early, it's only Wednesday, guess i should look for another job soon, i no longer enjoy my current job. I was working for the money since the first day i started work, well i guess, i really need to do something i really enjoy otherwise i won't have the passion to carry on for a long time.

Anyway, well done SPAIN!
