You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any message

with an attachment entitled 'POSTCARD FROM BEJING', regardless of who

sent it to you. It is a virus which opens A POSTCARD IMAGE, which

'burns' the whole hard disc C of your computer. This virus will be received from

someone who has your e-mail address in his/her contact list. This is the

reason why you need to send this e-mail to all your contacts It is better

to receive this message 1000 times than to receive the virus and open it...

If you receive a mail called' POSTCARD FROM BEJING,' even though

sent to you by a friend, do not open it! Shut down your computer immediately.

This is the worst virus announced by CNN. It has been classified by

Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever. This virus was discovered

by McAfee, and there is no repair yet for this kind of virus.

This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the

vital information is kept.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!! I literally cracked up when I read the email.

First of all the term 'big virus' is hilarious. 'Big' is never a word used to describe a virus. LOL

The rule of thumb is to not open any attachment that wasn't pre-mentioned, esp from someone you dunno. Anyone who opens it is a dumbfag worth to be shot in the head.

And I don't think CNN and Microsoft will be involved in announcing a virus' existence. The most MS would do is announce a SECURITY HOLE and offer an urgent patch.

Virus detection is antivirus companies' job. They would want to take credit for detection a virus firsthand, and not say that they can't remove it. Bad reputation for the software.

And no repair is false. Either format or get a new HDD will do.

Last but not least, the mere existence of this so-called 'Zero Sector" is doubted.

I'm havin fun bustin myths. Or at least laughing my ass out at a myth, esp an e-myth.

Just when I thought there's nothing to blog about...

and all I have to do is look into my phone memory card and look at the pics I've taken over the weekend.

Old Kee Curry Puff off Petaling Street, near Hong Leong Bank. If you couldn't find it, ask the uncle near a hooker place. He'll offer you teen hookers when yer on your way back.

Some super random stuff. Went to Popular to get some books, and my friend was browsing some street food books. Saw some good food at Petaling Street and decided to have a try.

The curry puff was of gigantic proportions. Rm1.30 for one but it'll take you a while before you can finish it. Coz it's a lil big, and it's piping hot when they serve it to you. But the fillings are just amazing. How often you get to chew on chunks of chicken meat in a curry puff? How often you see a quarter of a hard boiled egg in a curry puff?

K it's not exactly gigantic la, but if normal 30 sen ones are size M, this is an L. There're bigger ones out there. XL I tell you.

Some road at my hometown.

Took a walk when I was back at hometown. It makes you wonder what if development was to wipe out all those old houses clean? The town was an old one, in fact it's one of the main places to stop by if yer travelling from Seremban to KL 50 years back. Today it's just an old town with some of the old buildings intact.

Some tea in a teapot la... NBTD.

I think I'm gonna make a time lapse video of the morning getting brighter and brighter as the year passes. Think I can do it manually taking pics off my phone from the exact same spot for the next 300 days?

Signs that you're trying too hard...

... in your English.

First day of skool. Feels a bit cool to walk among other younger students knowing that yer seniority far exceeds them. It's like if the bunch of indian kids that always play while walking blocks your road, you can juz look at them in the eye and utter 'ooi' and they'll shut up and go away. Sucks that the pressure is pouring in now. We actually flew past half of the integration chapter today!

Last of my teenage years

2009 has just started, and it's taking something away from me already.

In the fiscal year of 2009, I'll be living the last year of my teenage life. Yes, I'm fiscally 19, the senior year of teenage-hood.

Like everyone else, I reached teenage-hood at 13, but never really appreciated the title 'teenager' until I reach 16. Yes, the 'sweet sixteen' age. All the MTV shit has gotten into me, at that time.

Yea some might say 'LOL why are you gettin so sentimental over your age? It's not like yer physically losing something, right?'. But seriously, beyond 2010, I'll be categorized as an adult. Well a young adult la still, it's different from a 'teenager'.

I've never really done what most teenagers would've done. If doing what teenager's stuff was a paper, I would be getting a miserable C-. I wouldn't say I've not done teenager's stuff. I've:

- driven a car (and still driving!)
- gone karaoke-ing
- night-driving (well, at least around here? *thumbs up*)
- hit 150kmph
- made my own food
- have my own mobile phone
- got a job
- solved the 3X3 Rubik's Cube
- had fun wit internet meme
- et cetera et cetera.

But it is those monumental stuff that I have yet to do. I have yet to:

- get into a serious relationship (although this can wait till adulthood, but still...)
- pop a cherry
- get drunk
- introduce a foreign color to my hair (I wouldn't wanna do that though)
- stay awake 24 hours straight (no reason to)
- have interest in rock music instruments
- attend a live concert
- skip a day's class, sheesh not even a lesson
- confront a teacher
- get in a proper fight, man-to-man, complete with kicks and punches (and survive!)
- swim naked (LOL it's weird how this thought poped out of nowhere)
- break down over something that has great significance in my life
- take a plane on my own
- et cetera et cetera.

Ain't it a bit sad to have a list that long? Stuff that you would've thought a typical teenager would've done by now. Am I atypical? Or am I juz plain boring?

I think 19 year old is about the transition from teenage-hood to adult-hood. I guess I could only done so much that's 'teenage'.

So yea, 2009 will be THE last year I spend as a teenager. Isn't this the best part of the post to shove in a list of my resolutions?

Material ones:

- get a 3.2 megapixel camera phone (C702!). I like taking pics, but i have no idea why I do not like the idea of carrying around one of those proper cameras. I'm having the idea of changing my phone every 2 years. This is the time.

- maybe get a bicycle. A LeRun road bike would be awesome.

With that out of the way, some real new year's resolution:

- actually sit down and concentrate on pure studying for a continuous period of more than 2 hours per day for more than 3 month. I guess this is maybe possible by STPM. Just maybe...

- score (and maintain) an A in physics, maths and chemistry at least by mid term (I really hope this works)

- time management, specifially time spent online. I'm averaging 6 hours per day. DAMN... I think I'll come up wit a target now. Er... I'll cap it at 2 hour per day from now till March, 1.5 hours till August, 1 hour till October, and I shall purge myself all of internet urges in time for STPM. I need the time.

- have patience when listening to ppl talking. (which means letting people finish wut they are sayin)

- learn a new sport

- be able to make a full meal for my family, complete wit starters, entree and desert.

- remember roads to important places

- master the art of reverse parking (wit side mirrors of coz)

- less me-happy-time (it's sucking up all my protein and I've gotta take control of it)

- creating awareness among schoolmates about climate change (although the enthusiasm is less than before, I think I can make it. Of coz I'll still have a passion for driving).

Wow that was hard. Thinking of stuff you wanna accomplish by the end of the year. Well a list is a list I'll have to honour it. I've forgotten about past resolutions and possibly failed to accomplish it, but this time it's serious business and I wanna do it this time.

This is to 2009! I need all the help to accomplish my resolution.

P/S: I think I'm printing this out. Wouldn't wanna miss out that A for science papers.

New Year's Day

New Year's day can mean a lot to people and mean differently to each and everyone of us.

The eve:

People gather around and take the chance to have their last fun of 2008

Couples sit together and look back at what a year they've been thru (good bad dunno la)

Some rush to finish their jobs in order to be in time for the countdown.

Some was forfeited their new year's eve privileges coz they have to work thru 12.

Some had their cars broken down on their way to the celebration.

Some sit at home in their cozy sofa tuned to the TV for the new year's eve programs.

Some take a breezy walk outside and trying to take a break before another turbulent year arrives.

Some juz sleep thru the near year.

As the clock strikes 12:

The world stopped for one second. And the cheer for a new year is heard.

Into 2009:

People greet each other a happy new year.

Those who missed the firework made it up with going around and wishing everyone a happy new year in a van, windows down, shouting it out loud, spreading the greetings.

Couples kissed and maybe have a new year's happy-time.

Some resolved their problems in time and hug and make out. And the van wit the kids shouting happy new year managed to drive past them and wish them a happy one as well.

Some finished work in time and celebrated the new year for the next few hours.

Some felt glad that they made the 2009 celebrations possible for other people.

Some continue to figure out wut's wrong wit their broken car.

Some watched ppl celebrate new year on TV, and be glad that they don't have to be crowded with them to feel the same.

Some was ready to take on the new year after a relaxing walk.

Some juz cursed at their neighbours for waking them up at 12 midnight.

So, how was your new year's celebration?

Did you catch the Taipei 101's 188 second firework show?

Or that daredevil motobike jump over the Arc de Triomphe? (the video description is cacat-ed la)

Or London's New Year fireworks show? (Highly recommended. With chimes from the BIG BEN!!! Watch in HQ!!!)

Hong Kong wants to show the world they can make fireworks as big as the ones in the Beijing Olympics. (It spans across the Victoria Harbour and Disneyland! WATCH IN HD!!! WORTH THE BUFFER!!)

However you celebrate your new year, year 2009 is another year of unknown and surprises.

Putting your finishing touches on your Pre-U exams?

Have fun in 2009. It's the only way of getting us to 2010.
