Well let me reveal my crazy and expensive obsession... Yeah, call me Beatle maniac...
Well this one below are in one box, bought it for RM362.90
And this is my latest addition, full set in a wooden box.

(Eh, how come my baby also included in this pic??(hint: guitar))
Well, I didn't include all of my Beatles collection in this post. All the picture taken with my Nokia 6322 while I'm packing all of them in a box. Maybe I will take a nice and decent picture with proper camera. Maybe you will be wondering how much already I spend for this crazy hobby. I can only say about 4 grand. Well, I got Beatles watch, matches. And now I'm eyeing authentic Beatles boots.... Hope nobody sees it yet :P......

Last night my wife and I went for this Transformer Movie. Well, at first we just thought this is just a normal 'real obvious' cgi generated robot movie. But... wait a minute... That real helicopter really turn to a robot? But should it so obvious that it should be a robot? Wow!
Well this is what I call a real Transformer Movie. But for hardcore Transformer fans out there will be a bit disappointed because this movie lack a lots of sound effect. You will only heard some transforming sound effect and the story line is a bit out from the original plot.
For the whole movie (that is 2.3 hour), this is the first time that I went for a movie that everybody in the cinema are quite. And the funny part is when BumbleBee went transforming from old Camaro to brand new model Camaro, everybody clapping! LMAO!!
And not forgetting this line "the boy's pheromone level shows that he wants to mate with the girl" LMAO!
So for those who not yet watch this movie, better not to miss this. I promise it will make you "bagagar biji" (rattle your "balls").

I'm trying to play the LaunchCast on my Yahoo Messengger and this is what I got.....
"The SaveNetRadio Coalition"
"You are being heard – The incredible number of Net radio listeners trying to contact their Congressional Representatives today has resulted in minor delays. Please continue to enter your zip code until the contact information for your representatives is displayed. Keep up the good work and keep turning up the volume on Congress.
The future of Internet radio is in immediate danger. Royalty rates for webcasters have been drastically increased by a recent ruling and are due to go into effect on July 15 (retroactive to Jan 1, 2006!). To protest these rates and encourage the millions of net radio listeners to take action and contact their Congressional representatives, today is a national Day of Silence. Webcasters across the country have dedicated this day to increasing awareness of this looming threat and gathering support for the SaveNetRadio collation and our campaign to preserve music diversity on-line. For an updated list of the participants in this national day of silence, visit http://www.kurthanson.com/dos/. Net radio listeners, please excuse the interruption of your normal programming and take action to ensure this silence is not permanent. Call your Congressional Representatives today."I myself are depended on internet radio to hear jazz , some oldies and some 70'ies 80'ies music. If this new ruling will be implemented, this is bad news for all music lover. Truly, where can you hear reggae, swing, big band, oldies or even jazz music in local radio? All that you can hear is the hip hop and all-kind-of-love music.
The impact will be on the musician them self. Not only that, even it will do more harm to unknown musician that they them self also dependent on internet radio to be recognize to the outside world. I would like to support this... Why my state are not listed here??? :P
“If the goal is to help musicians earn a decent living, raising the internet royalty rates will likely have an adverse effect, as ironic as that sounds.” – the Alexis Harte Band

I've been thinking that maybe that my blog are not yet ready for heavy ads now. So I drop down the PayPerPost ads. And I will try to concentrate to blogging alone while letting the Adsense running. Yeah, lets the reader builds up first then I will try to subscribe to a webhosting. So anybody (I know my loved one read this blog and also my bos), spread the word about my blog.

Game (online or non online) addiction are the worst problem that actually I've seen in lots of my friends. They even don't want to bother their jobs to be done that waiting them at the office. It's a sad truth. I myself almost addicted to this addiction.
Just imagine they willing spending their time or sacrifice their rest time just to play online game. Sleep around 7 a.m then wake up around 12-2 p.m then start back their gaming session until wee hour or until they can see the sun rises again. Especially when there is an "EVENT" in their 'other' world. Sometime I feel that they are more like game 'junkie'. You can see the symptom right through their eyes....
Here's a list of common symptoms to watch out for:
1. Lying about how much time is spent online.
2. General decrease of physical activity and social life.
3. Neglecting obligations at home, work, or school to spend time online.
4. Spending too much money on computer equipment or Internet activities.
5. Feeling a constant desire to be online when they're away from the computer.
6. Going online to escape real world problems.
7. Disregarding the emotional or physical consequences of being in front of a computer all day.
8. Denial of the problem.

How many times in our life that when we try to play our favorite music CD or VCD but only find them skipped or unreadable? Then we realize that we actually misplace it and accidentally scratch it. Well I ever get into this trouble and cost me my Beatles cd ( yes again I am a hardcore Beatles Fan).
Since here in KK there is no such thing as CD repairer services and if you ever get into this trouble, instead of throwing them into the dustbin, give this DIY from www.wikihow.com a try. There is nothing to lose (only small amount of money to sacrifice instead of buying a new CD that might out of stock already) try use toothpaste with clean, soft, lint-free cloth. For more info visit Fix My CD. Hehehehhe.......
If you are an employer that want to employ geek or intelligent people, there are 8 (yes eight!) things that needs to make them work happy.
#1. Let them work when they want
#2. Let them work where they want
#3. Let them control their lighting
#4. Let them wear headphones
#5. Do not expect them to wear a suit
#6. Do not make them participate in company events (unless you are sure it is geek-friendly)
#7. Do not hold a lot of arbitrary meetings that could have otherwise been handled through email or IM
#8. Do not make them do anything other than work
Hahahaa.... I don't know if some of the bosses here in KK will ever implement it. But I ever heard about employer allow their employee wearing short pants while working :P. But here in KK anyway.....
While I was letting out my self, I stumble to this word while searching for links to the word FUBAR, Private Snafu (stands for Situation Normal: All F*cked Up) cartoon. I'm an avid WW2 movie watcher but I never heard about this SNAFU cartoon.
""Private Snafu is the title character of a series of black-and-white American instructional cartoon shorts produced between 1943 and 1945 during World War II. The character was created by director Frank Capra, chairman of the U.S. Army Air Force First Motion Picture Unit, and some of the shorts were written by Theodor "Dr. Seuss" Geisel. Although the United States Army gave Walt Disney Studios the first crack at creating the cartoons, Leon Schlesinger of the Warner Bros. animation studio underbid Disney by two-thirds and won the contract. Disney also demanded exclusive ownership of the character, and merchandising rights.
Most of the Private Snafu shorts are educational, and although the War Department had to approve the storyboards, the Warner directors were allowed great latitude in order to keep the cartoons entertaining. Through his irresponsible behavior, Snafu demonstrates to soldiers what not to do while at war. In "Malaria Mike", for example, Snafu neglects to take his malaria medications or to use his repellant, allowing a suave mosquito to get him in the end -- literally. In "Spies", Snafu leaks classified information a little at a time until the Germans and Japanese piece it together and sink his transport ship."" - some info from wikipedia.
I try to find it in Youtube.com and surprise, you can find it there.
It's funny and very enjoyable. At lest bring smile back to my face.

I'm bored to death. Nothing to say or blog about. Outside it's raining like hell. Feeling FUBAR waiting for stocks that WE ordered but didn't arrive. Have to give lame excuses to all customer why we haven't got the stock yet.
My Teh C Panas just arrive and I just finish my coffee. My watch are out of timing for unknown reason (the milisecond needle was out from the suppose position). Waiting for someone (you know who you are :P) to deliver the KWSP aka EPF application form but still didn't got the time to go there.
I felt my life like repeating everyday. My stock balance didn't balance at all even I work through it. Found a long lost friend blog. Still didn't have any friend to go chilling out. Currently listening to "Folsom Prison Blues" song. Next is --anysongs-- from Ray Charles. Damn, I listen enough Ray Charles. I listen Free Bird from Lynard Skynard instead. Reminds me Forest Gump and don't-know-what-the-name movie by Rob zombie.
Flashback this morning, I saw this public transport station in KK but still got no improvement. Got a lots of money but still 'Kedekut' to upgrade. Think this KK folks are still 'kampungan'. Damn!
Yes I am out from my mind today. Suppose to post some good things to review but instead I just let my own self out. Yes, the internet are slow and we supposed to get faster connection. Like Tenacious D said "The gov****** totaly sucks you m*****f*ck*r". Yeah, they sucks big time.
And there in the other side, my friend listening Honesty by Billy Joel. Hmmm.... Honesty such a lonely word..... I know nobody give a damn to honesty nowdays.
HONESTLY, I need a rest. I mean, not just rest. Please somebody, bring me out and have some fun. Where is everybody????

Finally I found something good about blogging. While I was reading some article in LiewCF, I found this Chitika, Inc"The leading advertising network for bloggers with more than 12,000 participating blogs and websites". An interesting article indeed. Just have a look there and probably will answer some answer such as "Help me! My mom is my blogs only reader!" and many more. In here, they also reveals the deep secrets of their 30 expert blogger. Plus, an e-book free for download.

As you can see, I've change to a new layout. I hope this new layout can accommodate all ads that I subscribe. I envy with other blogger that has their own domain and can do anything with their layout. I decided not to jump to Wordpress.com since they didn't allow blogger who use their free service to put Adsense or any advertisement services in their blog.
My greatest influence in blogging are :
Mr Badak - A Sabahan blogger
Liew CF - (One of)Blogger who really earn a lot from blogging.
Both are blogsite that I usually go when I needed some info about blogging. There are a lots of other blogspot that I visited and I will listed it here later. Just look for the links I've put here....
There is no update yesterday since I' m taking leave so I can accompany my wife at home.
While I was I Damai yesterday (waiting for my wife going to clinic), I went to this RAM Music Studio/shop. For this few months, I've been trying to find a music shop that can provide some good and not so expensive musical instrument. But I still cannot find it anywhere in KK. Back to the RAM studio, I only can say that they are not into music instruments selling since I still can recognize some product that are still there since last time I visit the studio/shop.
And after that, we went to this Music Mart near the Jesselton Point. And again disappoint me. Having such a huge shop lot and quite establish musical academy, and yet still selling some no-quality musical instrument.
I can see that all music shop here in KK cannot cater all of musical need for everybody. For example; try finding a semi-solid guitar that price around Rm1000-2000. And branded one like Ibanez. Tell me if you find it......
Yeah, I've been abandoning my blog for 2 moons now. Still finding some time to update it but been busy with new things to catch up.
I will start to update as regular as I could. Yup, I promise to upload some picture some month ago but I didn't. Anyway I will do it sooner now or maybe tonight.
Hope anybody out there will start to look at my blog again. Anyway, I've been thinking that should I switch to "wordpress" blog or just stick to this blogspot. Recently I was thinking of to make some adjustment to my page so that it will look attractive. How I would that, I will decide it later. And also I've been thinking that maybe I could earn some money from my blog.
My recent obsession is to learn to play JAZZ music.(That's why I've been gone for quite a while). I manage to buy a classical guitar during my absent time and manage to learn some of jazz music. I'm still at it now, learning from a book, one at a time.
This is my latest baby, Takamine G116 Classical Guitar. Bought for Rm720 (after being discount from Rm 850, it's quite a bargain). I've been looking her ( I mean this guitar :P) for 2 weeks and decided to buy her. It took me 5 classical guitar try out before I really choose this baby. Bought also a hard case for her and also a guitar stand so that I can put her down on a 'cradle' while I'm not 'caressing' her for a while hehehhe.... The sound are good but the workmanship of this baby are not so good. But at lest this baby has a sweet and strong voice like a 'blackbird' ( Yes I'm a hardcore Beatles fan). I haven't decided yet what to call her yet.....
