Nevermind that I had to get up at 6am in the morning and take a 1 hour ride to the Bangalore Airport.
Nevermind that I had to stand in line for around 90mins just to check in.
Nevermind that my flight out of bangalore was delayed by 1 hour.
Nevermind that I am sweating like a pig that just did aerobics.
Nevermind that I am going to only be back for 3 weeks.
Being home, seeing family and friends, and all the Penang food in waiting.... it's going be to all worth it.

And getting unwired, be it your speakers, keyboard or mouse is one of the best ways to free up space on the desk.
So recently I got hold of a new Dell Wireless Keyboard and Mouse. The package comes with 4AA duracell batteries, a RF USB receiver, the keyboard and the mouse.
The Keyboard and Mouse is an RF 2.4GHz wireless bundles that has a range of 30 feet, not too shabby.
Here is a look of the keyboard from different views.
The mouse has an interesting design, unlike many wireless mouse that runs on batteries. The cover on the top of the mouse comes off instead of the usual design at the bottom, and the cover is held to the body by magnet.

I believe that in life, you meet alot of people. And in a sea of 6 billion human beings, there will be a small fraction of these people that will leave a mark of significance on your life and soul.
These people are the ones that you would call friends, true friends.
Today, I'm writing about one of my dearest friend. Her name is Vivian.
I met her almost 10 years ago on IRC. I remember how we used to chat into the nights on cyberspace and exchanged emails almost on a daily basis. I knew at that point that she will be someone very special to me.
The story of me & V started with friendship, extending to support, care, love, passion and lust. In between there were heart aches, wisdom, growing up and separation. But in the end, we ended up where we first started, 2 friends who care deeply about each other.
She taught me ambition, standing up for my beliefs and always go for what you want. These lessons are priceless, and shows the importance of a friend and at one point in our lives where we called each other soul mates.
People who know her will say the same, that she possesses an uncanny ability to influence people and she touches people lives around her.
Unlike Hancock, I don't believe we are made in pairs. I believe we are made in pieces, like a puzzle. And each of the friends and family you have make up that puzzle. She was one of the key pieces in my puzzle .
In less than 1 week's time, she will be taking the next step of her life with the man well deserving of her.
And unlike Julia Roberts, I am not out to stop this union. :) Instead I give my blessings.
I truly wish Vivian & Andrew, the very best in life, and a wonderful and fabulous future.

By-Election: Public Holiday for Penang.
Due to the Permatang Pauh election, Tuesday will be a public holiday for Penangites. And the reason for many employees to see their boss's face less during the week with more time to sleep in.
So political move or no, it's the people of Penang that benefits.
Let's just hope, with alot of faith that the country is moving in the right direction after this supposedly important by-election.
*end of thought*
'The final decision, after a week of uncertainty, was made at a meeting of senior officials from the Unity, Culture, Arts and Heritage Ministry yesterday.'
For this I applaud you O Ministers of UCAH. *clap* *clap* *clap*
It shows that when you put a few
So now I hope more Malaysian political morons will eventually evolve into at least monkeys and make better decisions to start with in the future. Just like an old saying, if you put 500 monkeys in front of typewriters long enough they would eventually type out a novel for you.
The question now is, how much longer can Malaysia wait?

So in one's life, you would have probably been rejected by a girl, a co-worker, a boss, a parent, a friend, a schoolmate, a blogger, a sibling, a pet, god maybe?
I mean, some rejections are easier to take than others.
For instance, if the girl that rejected me is Rhona Mitra I'd be fine. At least she took the consideration to reject me. what?!? I'm a guy!
And if this company rejected me, it's ok cause I don't really care.

After my rant on my first Morons of Malaysia posting on PAS Youth Chief, I thought the government would at least have some brains to say, 'screw you PAS!' and make the right decision.
Malaysia Cancels 'too sexy' Avril Lagvine Concert - Yahoo! News
But Nooooooo, now the whole friggin Ministry is just as moronic to cancel the Avril Lagvine concert. I don't know who in the ministry made the decision, but they are a bunch of dumbfuck.
Is it a political agenda as mentioned in this other blog? Probably.
But now it just proves both PAS and BN has a bunch of retards running them. The missed opportunity that the country has seen over the years is just saddening. So vote for PAS or BM, both also like 'jump sea'.
If the political parties want to practice discrimination against the artist, why don't they practice discrimination with the Malaysian people. For instance, restrict sale of tickets to muslims only, if your agenda is to keep muslim youths from being 'tainted'. Like the internet can't do that.... but that will definitely not go down well with the modern muslim community.
Bunch of ball sucking morons - PAS and Ministry of ACH
"We don't want our people, our teenagers, influenced by their performance. We want clean artists, artists that are good role models," Kamarulzaman Mohamed, PAS youth party official said.
You want clean artist ah? Ask them to take a shower before they perform lah. Niama.
Said in the news, that the organizers can request for a different date for the concert. So let's hope the nitwits in the Ministry of arts ,culture and heritage will not be morons a second time.

The food crisis is caused by a few different factors such as increase demand from Asia, bio-fuel subsidy from the US and EU, Climate changes, rising petrol prices etc.
So I remember when I was young, whenever I don't finish my food my mom will tell me that there is a child in India or Africa that has no food to eat. So at that time, grudgingly I finish the remainder of my food. Now, that statement holds very true and can be seen across the world.
So what are you doing to help end the world food crisis?
Today, in the year 2008 for me here in India I skip lunch at work. Yes, I skip lunch. Usually I have a heavy breakfast that includes cereal and milk, and survive on caffeine the rest of the day.
So is that my way of helping to end the world food crisis? Of course my intentions didn't start off like that, but it might as well be that now eh? :)
So I do this at work, and my colleagues know about it because whenever they ask me to join them for lunch I usually decline to join them. But being the nice people they are, they'd still ask me anyway. And I think it is in fear that one day I might just collapse of hunger in the office and hence causing them more work of trying to revive me.
So this brings us to why I am writing this entry, in the morning I got an email detailing Michael Phelps daily Diet.
Here it is:
For breakfast: three fried egg sandwiches, with cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, fried onions and mayonnaise, followed by three chocolate-chip pancakes; a five-egg omelette; three sugar-coated slices of French toast and a bowl of grits (a maize-based porridge), washed down with two cups of coffee.
For lunch: half a kilogram (one pound) of enriched pasta; two large ham and cheese sandwiches on white bread smothered with mayonnaise, washed down by energy drinks.
For dinner: Another half-kilogram of pasta, perhaps with a carbonara sauce, followed by a large pizza and more energy drinks.
Shit,That is alot of food!!! Imagine the shit that comes after that.....
A staggering 10,000 worth of calories daily. Which can feed an average of 5 men per day.
So if he skip one meal, he can save probably up to.... I don't know.... say, 50 starving kids?
So what do you say Michael? Go on a diet and help end the world food crisis?
So this brings me back to my colleagues, after reading Michael Phelps diet this is what he had to say about moi.
'Andrew will be able to survive for a year in that' - in reference to Michale Phelps meal for a day.
Great, now i'm known as the anorexic member of the team. x-( But hey, i'm doing it for the hungry children of India and Africa. :P

Reading a recent article on the star website made my blood boil, Avril concert definitely on says organizers.
Not about the concert being on part, but the moronic behavior of FT PAS youth chief Kamaruzaman Mohamed. It is exactly people like these that we do not need as leaders in Malaysia. (note: I am not an Avril fan, I just can't stand dumbfuck nonsense)
Here's the reason that was given to ban the concert,
"Earlier, the Federal Territory PAS Youth chief Kamaruzaman Mohamed had called for Avril’s concert to be banned on grounds that “rock and punk are not suitable for the young generation, especially so during the Merdeka month.”"I mean, WTF!!!! Where the hell did you come from? Mars? Rock and Punk not suitable for the young generation? Then who listens to Rock and punk? Your friggin 90 year old granma? KNN.
And what does Merdeka month have anything to do with rock and punk? Are you retarded Mr Kamaruzaman? Or were u dropped as a child on your head when you were young? Do not try to drive an agenda just for the sake of one, don't be a dumbass and let the world laugh at you and us.
I don't know how you got elected as youth chief, but I bet the young generation won't be choosing you again. So before you humiliate yourself any further, why don't you just step down and run back to the cave you crawled out from?
*end of Rant*
Mavalli Tiffin Rooms, is one of the oldest restaurants here in Bangalore. I've heard and read so much about it during my time here but never really got off my lazy ass to visit this Restaurant. So when my colleague called me up and asked me if I'd like to join him and the Mrs for lunch there, I jumped at the Opportunity.
Devil Muny: try slipping the uncle a Rs50 note and get in man
Angel Muny: Don't do it, you'll burn in hell....
At the end of the meal, a steel bowl full of fruits (apple, ciku, pineapple, grapes) topped with Vanilla ice cream was served as desert.

In my opinion, Michael Phelps is the next evolution of the human species.
1. Wing Span.The Span of his arm 6ft 7inc, his height is 6ft 4inc. A normal person's height to span ratio is usually 1:1, as seen in Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man. Unless you are doraemon.
3. Super power of recovery, his body produces low level of Lactic Acid and is able to dispose of the build up in the muscle. Lactic Acids basically builds up in your muscles, makes your muscle burns and the build up of lactic acid makes your muscle tire out and causes fatigue. So by producing low levels of the acid and the ability to disposes them makes phelps a swimming energizer bunny.
4. Body build. A Size 14 Feet and shorter legs combined with long torsos. The big feet helps him wade through water with ease and the leg and torso build helps reduce drag.

It'll be difficult for male gymnast with long 'shlongs' to do some of the routines they do today ..... so I think they should keep on their clothing. Imagine their 'shlongs' hitting them in the face while spinning around the pole. Or either that male gymnast will need to have very 'moderate' shlongs....
So luckily enough, just 5 minutes away is Bangalore's famous Lalbagh Botanical gardens. You can find out more about Lal Bagh here.
So besides walking, I tried my hand at some amateur photography. And to my luck, because India's Independence day is just 6 days away there was a huge display of flowers being displayed at the green house.
You can see people selling snacks......
Also there is Miss Justice herself.... Justice and love could be the same person, cause both of them are blind
Also this is the eighth dwarf named Scary that never appeared in Snow White
And if Pumba and Simba from the Lion King had sex, this is how their offspring would look like.
Along the way there are alot more beautiful flowers.....
More flowers along the way, and I just went trigger happy....
So we made our way to the green house where the the exhibition was held.
So colorful, so pretty..... I feel like a bee.... whoa, hold on a minute. Man Up!
Alot of daisies too, reminds me of daisy duke...
And of course, not forgetting, a Rose for you reading this.... :)
