The Shark is Coming!!

Well, tomorrow is my internship presentation... Dr. Shark is coming to evaluate me. I do wonder how the visit will be like, since he's notoriously famous in class for his "grilling" (he uses that to determine our attendance!). He's a cool lecturer though... Hopefully and prayerfully will be able to get through this well =)

The End of The World??

Finally went to watch the most hyped up blockbuster of the season, 2012. In fact the movie had so much hype surrounding it to the point that tickets all over Malaysia were being snapped up the very moment the counters open. Even in Ipoh itself, tickets for the whole day were all SOLD OUT when the gf and I reached the counters at approximately 5 p.m., but fortunately there were still tickets to watch "A Christmas Carol" (which was pretty nice).

After the movie, it was 11 p.m. and somehow there were some people who gave up their bookings for 2012 last-minute, so we very conveniently managed to catch the midnight show. Even though we were a little tired, this was still the movie with the hype. In fact I had not heard a single bad review about the movie.

After coming out, I would say that my verdict: Disappointment of the year.

I guess maybe I had my hopes a little too high. Or maybe it really was bad. First of all,

What I would expect from a typical end-of-the-world movie:

1. Total Annihilation

  • Basically the idea is that everyone dies, leaving no room for survival. Otherwise, the survivors are desolate, living in a world that is neither dead nor alive.

2. Overwhelmingly scary-looking tsunamis that can make you pee your pants

  • This picture is basically seconds before a tsunami strikes... I guess you get the picture.

3. Extreme tension (and scares!) and unpredictable twists
  • Nail-biting from beginning to end, makes you go "Oh crap..." for the whole show. A brilliant twist in the movie always does good. Makes you go like, "Whoa, I never thought of it that way... Ingenious..."
4. Crazy volcanic eruptions that make nuclear bombs look like jokes

5. Lastly, an emotional underlying theme that makes you think of what you would do if it comes
to this
  • The hallmark of a good, if not brilliant movie lies in its ability to make you ponder about your own life. It helps you to relate it to yourself. Would you be able to keep your marbles together if you are faced with the same situation?

Why I thought the movie was disappointing:

1. The people survived by getting onto arks, mirroring Noah's Ark. There ain't nothing wrong with that. However the thought of the Ark actually surviving water intrusion and multiple impact at full force actually isn't logical.

2. Although the trailer looked scary, the tsunamis in the movie were highly disappointing. the waves and the waters flooded the lands, but honestly, I didn't feel anything when I saw it.

3. Predictable story. There were no surprises throughout the movie. Yes, the tension was there,
  • But somehow you just knew that a really really long limousine would be able to drive past the falling buildings and make it on time before the building came down.
  • And you would be able to predict that the jet planes would be able to take off in the last moment despite having a limited runway.
  • Oh yes, and not to forget. The Indian man who provided them with the information that saved them all was betrayed.
  • There are 5 minutes left. You are the only person who can save everyone on the ship. But you still have the time to share a long passionate kiss with your wife and argue with your son about whether he should follow you or not. Good job, now you've got 2 more minutes!
4. Potong stim.
  • Seconds before a tsunami is going to hit you. You are with your whole family, whom you will never see again. The first thought, "I'm gonna call my best friend to remind him that he betrayed me!!" =.=
  • You actually have cell phone reception at a time of a tsunami attack. =.='
  • Before dying, the man looks to his son... calls his name, looks like he's about to say something touching... they all die. =.=''
  • Scientist tries to woo president's daughter. They are in an ark, and you can't get OUT to even the decks. President's daughter asks, "Are you asking me OUT?". =.='''
  • The inspirational President's last words before death were "Oh s**t!"
5. The volcanic eruption scene was made to look like a joke by the antics of this weird radio DJ character. I was laughing during that scene.

6. The show wasn't very thought-provoking or emotional. Even when the man who saved their lives (he happens to be the new boyfriend of the heroine after her divorce with the main protagonist) died a tragic death, they only said "No!!!!" and shed a few tears before totally forgetting him by the end of the movie.

It's Gonna Be Over!

Internship is gonna be over. If my calculations are not wrong, it is already week 26 now and we only have a couple more weeks here on internship. I'm ABSOLUTELY going to miss internship and all the luxuries that come with it.

Here's why being on internship is better than being stuck in UTP:

1. Internship offers you tonnes of FREE TIME after work; UTP forces you to take tonnes of OVERTIME to complete your work.

2. Chances are, your office has lightning fast internet connection with mild restrictions; UTP has ITMS.

3. Internship gives you the chance to learn new things at your own pace; UTP crams your brain with an average of 18-20 credit hours per semester, half of which you do not understand, even after final exam.

4. During internship, the only reports you need to be writing are the weekly reports, of which normally you are allowed to pile up; in UTP, you get reports and assignments to do, practically every week. And that is just for one subject.

5. Over at the office, when you make mistakes, you learn from them and gain more experience; in UTP, your every mistake in the quizzes, tests and assignments leave a long-lasting mark on your CGPA, which overflows to your CV.

6. If you rest while you are on internship, it's your God-given right; if you rest while in the middle of a semester in UTP, for even one second... you sleep with one eye open.

7. During internship, you adhere to the rules and norms of the society and the company; in UTP, you have people trying to force their way of life onto your daily life, even if there's nothing wrong with your life.

8. (this only applies to some) During internship, you are in the city or at least in civilization! Your options for lepak and food are limitless; in UTP, no food and you need to wish those with cars will invite you along for trips outside to find food. =(

9. During internship, if you take leave or fall sick you can get a good rest and recuperate; in UTP, miss a day of classes and you will be stuck with a backlog of new assignments and missed exam tips!

10. During internship, you get double your allowance of when you were in UTP, plus Petronas allowance, without being burdened with tax. =D

All-in-all, I'm gonna be missing internship when it's over. So I'm trying to enjoy it while I can. To those having intern next semester, you will have 32 weeks to taste that kinda life, while I'm about to go back to the life full of tests, quizzes, reports and assignments... Hope I can adapt back to the hectic lifestyle though.

Some Updates

A lil' update: Just back off a great weekend with the gf. Went for the All-American Rejects concert in Carpark A, Stadium Bukit Jalil. It was awesome. The pushing and shoving was horrible, but heck, at least God protected us. The mini fight was right beside us but we were alright. Btw, did I mention that we had a front-row view? =D

Some of you may know that my car was involved in an accident which has kept my car out of action for like 2 weeks or so. I haven't been able to take a picture of the extent of the damage there and then, but roughly explaining I can say that the whole driver's side was crushed and scratched and part of the headlights were crashed too.

After much pushing and telephone call frenzy, I managed to get to the workshop to take a look at the car yesterday. I do hope I receive a call later telling me that my car is ready for pickup.

The circled: headlights, The wavy lines: hancur (last time)

Red wavy line: scratches that looked like wolverine's claw marks, red circle: dent, black circle: door jammed

10 Hazards At A Construction Site: Part 2

The first post was about rusty nails and wooden planks. So what would be the best thing that can be coupled together with that to make it more dangerous?

Introducing Hazard #2 - Deceptively level grounds that disguise deep holes.

Think of it as an evil version of one of those Kinder Surprise (you know, those chocolates with surprise toys in them) chocolates we used to get as kids. When you set foot into one of those holes, I couldn't have said it better than Forest Gump's mama, "You never know whatcha' gonna get!"

Liverpool 2 - 0 Manchester United

This is probably old news, but hey... This is a crucial victory for Liverpool fans out there. More importantly, it just shows how unpredictable football can be (considering how everybody thought that Liverpool could not have had any worse opposition after a 4-match losing streak).

Several highlights here from the match. The most notable being the performance of Yossi Benayoun. Outstanding work rate and skill. Throughout the whole match he did not give up, and we don't even need to mention the sublime pass to Torres that supplied the all-important goal.

Scorer and assister

Equally important was the comeback of Jamie Carragher to top form. He has received a lot of criticism in the previous games, critics even suggesting that he was way past his best. But as Paul Tomkins said in his column on, not even with 1000 beach balls on the pitch would United have scored against the defence of Carragher and Agger. =P

Still at his best

On the other hand, another saga continues as Nemanja Vidic has completed his hattrick by getting his 3rd red card in as many matches against Liverpool.

This was from the previous match

For Lucas critics, this was arguably his best performance in a red shirt. I was impressed with his play. He has improved but yet has much to prove.

But to be fair. This is only but ONE game (albeit a very important one!) and the season is far from over. I can only say "we shall see" and we shall not assume we will beat United again at Old Trafford later in the season, as they cannot assume that they will win the season this time round again (Even though both did happen last season).

10 Hazards At A Construction Site: Part 1

As part of an earlier series I have been planning to blog about since the beginning of the internship, Mojoe presents: 10 things you need to watch out for at a construction site. *fanfare* (Well, at least those 10 things are from my personal perspective!)

A little update: I still have no internet connection, so this is from my office. I shall be calling up DiGi soon to fix the problem...

Hazard #1 - Wooden Planks Lying Around

If you really look around a construction site, you will notice a lot of discarded wooden planks around you. Whether in heaps or just stray pieces of wood. In fact it is so common to see them around that eventually you get kinda numb towards seeing them and you might feel that there's nothing wrong with a bunch of planks lying around. But think again...

I wouldn't fancy stepping on one of those, not even with my boots!

I Miss...

My parents, the Gf, my car, church, my internet connection, my mobility, doing crazy stuff, pranking people, Kelana Jaya station at 7 p.m., Murni's, Pringles from US, nice food trips with gf, futsal, watching football matches, our old CG, COP Tronoh, Crash n Burn, Civil gang...

Blessings =D

I haven't been having internet access lately. But I can see that God has been continually blessing me. Work is getting more and more interesting. I'm also spending a day in the office. =D So I can use the office network.

Today mum called me up and told me that I just won 3 FREE TICKETS TO WATCH ANY MOVIE IN GSC!!! After getting so many free movie invites, I don't know how I got this but thank you God and DiGi!!!

But since bro is having loads of exams and tests lately, and dad and mum need some rest, hopefully they will be able to catch a movie together or something with those free tickets. =)

Also lately I have gotten something that I have been wanting for a long time. So this is a BIG thank you to God and everyone =D

I Am Unable to Go Online

This is really sad. I will not be able to blog for I don't know how long as I suddenly cannot use my phone as modem any longer. Oh well... Anyways I'm typing all this from the computer in my office while having a nice warm cup of free Milo from the vending machine while Michael Buble's "Sway" is playing in the background.

I shall try and blog from here every once in a while until I get good connection. Anyways, to gf and all her tormented coursemates who will be having TP test tomorrow, may God bless you and give you good results for it and A GOOD REST afterwards. =D

That's all for now. Gotta go home while the rain is not that heavy now.

Tuesday, September 8, 2009


I just realised that 09 09 09 09 - 9.00 a.m., 9th September 2009... A unique date/time combination in the calender, would be spent punching in my attendance at work tomorrow. Gee, what a way to celebrate a unique moment.

Disney-Pixar's UP: Wouldn't It Be Nice

For those who have not watched the movie UP by Disney-Pixar, you probably are still missing out on a heart-warming show that can on one hand really send you rolling on the floor in laughter, and immediately leave you in tears the next moment.

Never mind the plot or the synopsis. That is not the point I want to make with this post. Yes, this is one of the better movies around. However, the thing I would like to highlight here is the relationship between ol' Carl and his wife Ellie.

The "Ellie Badge"

As with all Disney movies, their marriage is what dreams are made of. Their relationship runs all the way back to an adorable and innocent childhood incident which leaves the young Carl star-struck and it progresses all the way to a blissful marriage that ends with the death of Ellie due to a terminal illness. This causes the shy Carl to become reclusive and full of regrets due to their failure to realize their shared dream of going to Paradise Falls. However through all of it he manages to draw inspiration from her memory to achieve the impossible.

Don't they just look so good together?

Which makes me wonder. We don't see much of this happening nowadays anymore. Marriages like these are so rare that they are like actually finding vibranium! The little things that they share and they do makes it all feel very sweet. But the thing that really touched me the most was seeing the missing pages of Ellie's Adventure Book being filled up with all the pictures of them together, not in the outdoors; but in the compound of their home. She made Carl promise and "cross his heart" as a kid to bring them to Paradise Falls, but deep in her heart, her adventure was just being with him.

Now isn't that nice? =D Makes me really wanna grow old with gf!

So, 52 years have passed since the independence of Malaysia from all foreign colonies. The question is, have we truly achieved "merdeka" (independence)?

The incident in Shah Alam on the eve of National Day certainly seems to indicate otherwise. The residents claimed that all they wanted to do was show their anger in response to their earlier petition against the temple relocation being ignored. However, the act of dragging around, stomping and spitting on a religiously sacred symbol shows that their feelings were more than that of being ignored.

The graffiti on the fencing of the supposed site of the temple also cited rather offensive comments, and the parading of political flags definitely did not do much to help the situation either (given the notoriety of the aforementioned party).

I love this country with all my heart, and I'm proud of what we have achieved as a nation. But it saddens me greatly to see the that after 52 years,

  1. The country is plagued by corruption in every level of society
  2. Mediocrity is celebrated and excellence is sidelined
  3. People who stand up for justice and integrity are charged with threatening internal security or simply silenced.
  4. We still practice a prehistoric concept of communal-based politics
  5. Racial tolerence is desired by the people but greatly hampered by those in positions of influence and power
  6. Religion is utterly misused as a political weapon and a vehicle to rally votes
  7. Cover-ups are rampant while obvious truths are blatantly denied
I really hope and pray to see our country improving in the years to come. That people will put aside their prejudices and come together as one people and nation. I am in support of the concept of 1Malaysia, but I hope that it becomes more than just a campaign or a concept. It's high time the leaders of the country did something for the people. It's been a while, as far as the people of Malaysia are concerned.

How can you bear to sever the head of such a cute animal?

After getting some help from a helpful website, I got rid of the problem by clearing my cache and cookies. Now it looks so much better, but my mood to post what I had in mind is ruined, and besides, I feel kinda sleepy and need rest soon.

But anyways, I shall post up something else. Finally met up with Henry last week for the FIRST time since Highway Engineering finals and we went to 1 Utama before eating dinner. We met this 2 dudes who were all in white (even their faces!) and freezing in different poses while standing on a certain platform.

Aaron Lat jokingly said he wanted to join them, so we decided to sabo him and make him post with them. He resisted, but caught their attention. From that point on there was no escaping...

Aaron looks uncomfortable

Then Kee Siong also wanted to try... But the white guy who tried to kiss Aaron pakat with me to play a trick on Kee Siong. We made him freeze in that position for a very long time and pretended not to have taken the shot, when in reality we took the shot in less than 5 seconds.

The longest pose ever...

Shortly after, we bumped into this "flasher" who flashed at Aaron.

Dunno whether shocked or interested =P

I Can't Post Pictures

I have been facing a problem with my posting. I can't seem to use the traditional "COMPOSE" method to publish my posts, and only the html mode is available. This is highly frustrating. Anyone have a solution?

The Orphan

It's been quite a while. Haven't been able to go online for a long time. But I'm back from a week of wonderful blessings. Have been having so many free dinners the whole week, and to top it off Renae won some tickets to watch the premiere of The Orphan, which was in GSC Midvalley Megamall. Unfortunately she couldn't make it, so Aaron Lat followed me to catch it.

Started out early to try to avoid the jam, but as usual the roads were jammed up all the way from the Damansara exit toll until the ss2 junction. It was going to rain, as the lightning was flashing all over the sky. Seemed like a great atmosphere before catching a horror movie. =)

Unfortunately I couldn't quite catch the lightning on camera though. Well, after a rather jammed up journey to Midvalley, we finally got there early enough to collect the tickets.

*Spoiler Warning*

The Orphan revolves around the story of a couple with 2 kids of their own who, after losing a possible third child in a miscarriage, decides to adopt an orphan and love her as their own.

In the orphanage, the husband stumbles upon a particularly bright and well-mannered 10-year old girl who goes by the name of Esther. The couple are immediately captivated by her maturity and her charming way of conversation. They would take her into their household. For a while life seems to be getting brighter and more cheerful, but will it remain so? Or is Esther really who she seems to be?

All-in-all a great thrilller that will excite you and keep you interested right up to the last moment. And NO, Esther is NOT a ghost, nor does she possess any supernatural abilities that make her dangerous. That's it, I'm not going to spoil the movie for the rest of you. But yeah, do watch it. =D
*Spoilers end here*

So i would say this is a good movie for all horror enthusiasts. =) Oh, and those who love SAW and Final Destination too. Thanks again sweet! =)

The Prank

Was supposed to have dinner at 6 p.m. today. But since Desmond couldn't make it so we postponed it to 7 p.m. Me, Thean Jern and Lat were waiting for Kee Siong to come to Taman Bahagia LRT station. We waited from 6.30 p.m....

... and waited...

... right until 8 p.m. T_T

So we decided to devise a plan to "teach" him a lesson. We were gonna pretend that we're really mad at him, to the point that we don't wanna talk in the car, turn off the radio and make everything really tense. We even planned the taglines. It was a fool-proof plan.

So when he finally turned up, we put on our serious faces and acted really cold and disappointed in his late showing. I kick-started it by turning around coldly and saying softly, "Let's go,". Thean Jern put on an angry face and refused to talk to Kee Siong or even look at him. I started the car and the radio was playing. I said to Lat quietly, "Turn off the radio,"

It was really quiet and tense in the car... He was really feeling it. Until Lat talked to him. =.=

We continued to play the game until dinner but eventually the effect was diminished so I decided to reveal it to him. At least he gave a sigh of relief and said that my acting was very realistic, and also that Thean Jern seemed angry at him, even at moments giving comments that indicated his disapproval towards Kee Siong's "offence".

Lat potong stim la... *smacks head*

First Internship Visit

Tomorrow. At exactly 9 a.m. is the first internship visit. Okay, that is the time my work starts. Makes me feel like I have to wake up even earlier tomorrow, and can't sleep until 8.30 a.m. =(

Well, I'll be getting my CIDB authorized Green Card tomorrow, which officially grants me legal access to the construction sites (when I've actually been to the construction sites so many times already!) .

Ir. Arazi will be coming but he actually canceled his visits yesterday because of an unexpected incident. I pray that he will be fine, and that the visit will yield a good result tomorrow, cause i'm not sure what i'm supposed 2 do.

What Happened to the Dogs?

Quick update #1: I have not been online for a long time. Just felt bored of going online for a while.

Quick update #2: Liverpool 5 - 0 Singapore!! This shows 2 things. Liverpool > Man Utd & Malaysia > Singapore!! (tongue in cheek)

If you do recall the post about my supervisor's fearsome dogs, here's a little update on what happened to them. It seems the dogs have been at the shelter for a month or so and they have become fatter. But they have also taken up a new interest-- WOMEN!!

By this I mean female dogs. Their latest endeavour has earned them scars and bruises, and my supervisor decided to bring them some acriflavine lotion, which is why we got to visit them.

Injured soldier-in-love

Just in case you were wondering about what happened to that little puppy that they bullied. She's a little more grown up now, and they've gotten used to her and stopped barking at her. In fact, she can even get away with messing around with them and she helps them lick their wounds. Since then they have found a new target to unleash their fury upon, and they do so without any mercy. That unfortunate victim happens to be another dog over there.

Puppy trying to help clean the wound

Mischievous puppy

Other than that, managed to bring gf to The Curve and IKEA finally. We had some nice meatballs though. =D And I love this pic!

My "Malaysian" Weekend

Hi. Haven't been around for the weekend, so this post is kinda delayed a little. Have been doing many things throughout the weekend and it was really fruitful. Gf decided to come down because I got the free tickets for us. But the real story started from friday after work.


My colleague said, "Hey, stay back a while. The new GM has a treat for us," When I went out, what caught me by surprise was not that it was a durian feast, but the sheer amounts of durian that came. A WHOLE TRUCK came all the way from Penang, carrying a whole load of durians (especially "Red Prawn")

They even had the workers from Penang

Mangosteens and rambutans to cool you down

The other people in the office, normally very reserved and dignified, all of a sudden turn into "hungry ghosts" when they saw the durians.

Crowding around the truck

After grabbing a durian, eat it the traditional Malaysian way!

They eat so fast that at times the shell is left when you get there =(

The "view" outside my office

I myself managed to grab quite a lot of durians despite having to "fight" the others for it. I left at 6.30 p.m. as I didn't want to be late for cell group but I heard later on that the people even stayed beyond 7.30 p.m., still eating durians!

I skipped dinner because I was running late for cell, so Aaron and I decided we would go for makan after cell. But praise God for another blessing. The young adults' pastor bought us pizzas from Domino's so we had free dinner again. =D


Went to watch the Malaysia XI vs Manchester United match. After lining up for ages just to buy train tickets and squeezing into trains with many red t-shirt-clad people, we reached Stadium Putra, Bukit Jalil.

So many people crowding around trying to get in

The rush!

After running up and down a whole lot of stairs, we finally found 2 places where we had a pretty good view, even though my camera couldn't really capture how good the view was.

The lineup being announced

The packed stadium of die-hard devils

Match underway, my camera couldn't catch the celebrations properly =(

The match was really interesting, and whatever others might say, Malaysia performed well by scoring 2 goals, losing 2-3 by a stroke of luck that allowed Michael Owen to score his first goal in months.

Later on we headed down to Berjaya Times Square and had some nice thai food at VERY THAI restaurant. Then finally let gf try Krispy Kreme. Hope she really enjoyed herself though, since it was her 21st birthday the day after. =D If you wanna read more bout the Man United match, Thai food and the Krispy Kreme, you can read this.

All-in-all, it was a wonderful weekend! =D

Prize Collected

Just collected the physical manifestation of what I won the other day though. Finally, I'm going to watch a LIVE soccer match with GF. Although I don't really know what to do with the United cap tho. Hmmm...

Thanks to Uncle Wilson for showing me the shortest way there the other day, or else I would be going one big round just to find the directions to Taipan. =D

Mojoe's 1st Review: Plants vs Zombies

Here's a little advertisement for the creators of this game. (I have not been paid to do this!)

If you enjoyed games like,

2. Zuma

YOU ought to try out the All New (okay, not that new) Plants vs Zombies!!

This is, as with all the other PopCap games, highly-addictive and highly-adorable. What is this game all about? The whole idea of the game is explained "helpfully" by this picture...

Anyways, the whole idea is that zombies are coming to attack you house to eat your brains. The only defence you have against them is a whole arsenal of...... PLANTS!! (How helpful is that?) Somehow the system works, and you gotta exercise your green fingers to save yourself (and your brain!) from destruction.

You are given time to plant some plants on your lawn. You can choose from a whole range of plants that provide various options including the "Sunflower", which provides extra sunlight for you to plant more plants, the basic "Pea Shooter" that well, just shoots peas and kills zombies, and those are just to name 2 of them.

There are also many kinds of zombies to fight with, ranging from the regular weak zombie to American Football zombies to even zombies driving a bob-sled or riding on dolphins (they're undead too, mind you!). All that effort, just to eat your puny little brain! *phew*

There are many levels that vary in terms of scenario as you progress, and if at any point you get bored of just planting and blocking zombies, you can unlock 3 other game modes with multiple levels of their own. So in other words, this game provides a lot more depth than other games of similar simplicity.

Daytime scenario with all kinds of crazy zombies

Those glowing things are sunlight btw, and it's a wonder how the tombs spawn at night

And, in the event where all your plants die, and the zombies attack your house, you have a last line of defence, which is a lawnmower which will flatten the intruding zombies. But, if after that you let another zombie through...

I Won!!

Remember that Smirnoff Man United competition that I entered for fun? I can't believe that I won something. Haha.

Even though I won the Special Prize, which is a Smirnoff Manchester United Cap and 2 RM58 tickets (which means I'm gonna be behind the goalkeeper!), but it's still something and I'm grateful for it. =D

Hopefully Gf can come and watch with me though. I never expected the first LIVE football match I'm gonna watch is of Manchester United; while a week after, my brother will be watching Liverpool kick the wind out of the Singaporean National Team. T_T

Whatever it is... Thanks to Smirnoff, Thaiboxingirl, Riche Monde, and those who helped me!! =D

Exam Results

Results just came out. Was really scared about it but when I saw it I was relieved. I was extremely shocked at my Engineering Economics and Malaysian Studies results, which looked like DEFINITE A's to me. I wonder why I NEVER get A for 2 credit hour subjects. Always A- that I always nearly expect it.

But anyways just praise God that I didn't fall out of Dean's as nearly everyone in Civil gang had their GPA drop from the previous semester. It was indeed harder in that semester. Hopefully this semester *fingers crossed* =D

Anyways, this is how it looks like. Still thankful because my coursework was not as good as previous semesters. But the results are encouraging, save for those 2 I mentioned above, and Highway Engineering =D

The Most Pointless Thing I Did Today

I normally have my meals in the office. So my meals are kinda like "Kinder Joy" surprises that I get everyday. Never know what's for lunch beforehand. So I kinda realized that the time it takes for me to finish my meal varies from day to day. So, having a lot of time on my hands, I tried to derive an expression to determine the speed of my eating a standard meal.

The following is the solution I have obtained:

There are infinite variables that we can consider. However I have decided to omit the less quantifiable variables which will complicate the calculations, such as food dislikes, allergies, being picky etc.

1. All food is at least acceptable to the eater
2. Speed varies from one individual to another
3. The meal consumed is not for luxury, but rather out of necessity
4. Taste (acceptability) and Portion are the only variables that govern the magnitude of speed

First, we isolate the influence of each parameter on the magnitude of speed.

We can see that Taste is directly proportional to Speed while Portion is inversely proportional to Speed.

Next, we combine the two variables to support the accuracy of the above method with a simple table.

where, -- represents, Extremely Low Speed
- Low Speed
O medium Speed
+ High Speed
++ Extremely High Speed

Therefore, I conclude that:-

Speed = Constant x Taste/Portion

Perhaps I may be wrong, but I guess. This means I'm probably thinking too much or I'm just too bored and missing Gf too much. =(

Proof The Weather Is TOO Hot

Was at site as usual today and I was feeling pretty sleepy at one point and I got the best wake up call. All of a sudden, and explosion came from the pile driver I was observing. A great deal of hydraulic fluid burst out from the pipes running towards the drop hammer and it all just evaporated in an explosive manner.

Even at a great deal of distance, some of the fluid sprayed onto my safety boots and my hand. Thank God that it wasn't hot. My supervisor said that thing can scald. *phew!*

Post explosion pile driver- Pretty much black

The spillage from the explosion

If you enlarge this picture, you actually can see the fluid (yellowish) gushing out
