Spartacus: Blood and Sand

It's a new TV show...recommended by a friend through a text message just like this..."wel, bagus ko tinguk spartacus..lagi best dari one tree hill...banyak be'tut' sama telanjang..."

Honestly, I was a little surprise on the purpose of recommendation and laughed loudly...haha...I wasn't quite interested at first but when I was at this one DVD shop looking for DVD, I tried to find its DVDs so at least I could possibly see its cover or a little info but to no avail....at home I surfed through the internet looking for information.... it was at that moment I found out it is a new TV show which was premiered in Jan 2010..

Since it is a new series so this is very handy to follow from 1st episode...I began downloading and managed to catch up to the current episode....my review...too much niple!!!...haha..the story is about the historical figure of Spartacus, a Thracian Gladiator who from 73 to 71 BC led a major slave uprising against the Roman Republic..it focuses on structuring the events of Spartacus' obscure early life leading to the records of history...thus the series is a mix of graphic violence of 300...

It is far too early to tell whether Spartacus will a great TV show...

Jew has a new baby!

I was supposed to have an appointment at 10am but was postponed at 3:30pm...it was my day off today thus extending the hours to watch Ghost Whisperer Season 5 Episode 1 - Episode 11 (downloaded) up until 6am wasn't a big deal yet I had to wake up before 10am to get ready for an appointment...which I really did but a single phone call at about the time of appointment changed it all...huhu..

I helped Jew to configure his new 'baby' (kaya o ko Jew ada 2 babies suda..haha..)He got his new baby on Monday but due to hardware malfunction a guest had to come and look at it...Jew bought a new baby named Dell (without OS) which was cheaper by hundreds of ringgit..thing wasn't as planned...I figured out it wasn't delivered in a condition it should have been (perhaps it was when it left the factory) I had to call the 'mother' to send one of their specialist to come and check what was going on...I had earlier suspected, most likely there was a defect in its hardware (cooling system) as it shuts off by itself every time when I was working on it, stopping me from doing what I needed to do and.....it didn't prompt any error at all!! ...I had performed lots of troubleshooting method as per experience and finally gave up the day after the package was delivered :(

As suspected; a tech specialist came and replaced its Mobo but it didn't solve the problem..he then decided to replace its fan which then resolved!!! It sounded like the package wasn't being properly tested prior delivery??? I have no idea but it does sound like it...spent almost 2 hours to configure its OS, drivers & utilities and installed couple of programs as requested by the owner (looking forward to the weekend kaini Jew...hahaha...3 set saja ba...)

Glad that it worked out well and am sure Jew would be sleeping and hugging his new baby at the same time tonight..haha...I wish a rain would come visit Penang today but it turned out to be just another HOT DAY!!!!! I'm freaking fed up with the weather!!...with my hair getting longer and longer, it's no joke the heat is making me uncomfortable.....thinking of cutting my hair soon? Let's see who's going to give up..haha...hot weather or me..haha...the only time I could enjoy cold shower is during morning shower (before going to sleep) what have we done to the world!!! Anyway, the tree I mentioned before is looking way better than others in the neighborhoods...it got healthy green leaves...masih lagi menyiram pokok jalanan setiap malam..hahaha..mesti pokok-pokok lain jelous..haha...

May you have a great day!

The Funny Dr. House

Not many of us aware that there's another side of the mean character of Dr House Gregory (Hugh Laurie) in the hit US series House...

I've read about Hugh Laurie is actually a British years ago when I started becoming a fan of the hit series House he plays....but never quite sure about him being a well known genius comedian in the UK when he was young...thanks to YouTube.Com (search for Fry and Laurie)! I found couple of his hilarious acts and this is one of my favourite....

Bittersweet

I have not been writing as much as I used to be..perhaps this is the real me..just a plain quiet type of person…I have been having this thought of applying for another job after over 4 years with the current company…I always tell people that I could only be thinking of migrating to another company when there’s neither new adventure nor skills to learn…yes that is true and I would not dare to say it isn’t good to others who keeps on thinking of applying job interview though…it’s up to them but when it comes to me at certain time for a wrong reason i.e. management isn’t good...colleagues not co-operating or not getting enough support from your superiors..that sounds like an excuse for not being able to cope with life and challenges…nevertheless, the person who talks about this sort of attempt is not less than a person who doesn’t quite understand about having basic survival skills of taking better care of her/himself and surrounding…too much of dream and ambition but nothing for self-enhancement?

Honestly, I’ve had this thought since last couple of months ago and some of friends have heard about it yet I have not made any attempts of doing so..I have no specific reasons for not making the first move though as I believe it was just a temporary thought and I was partially correct on this…I’d love to learn few more new skills if I may in near time though..maybe the time hasn’t come just yet….These couple of days in 2010 had been quite a mess for me…things happened unconditionally…I could only look for resolution to stay afloat to go through the journey…hell to love! It’s not about love/relationship at all…some people have been advising me of staying single for too long isn’t good for me...they may be correct and I couldn’t deny what was advised but I do have my own reasons for not being into relationship anymore…it’s just not fun anymore although it could bring joyful life once you’ve found the one…haha…in fact, I've never thought of myself a lonely person as I have number of really good friends (I could share good and bad with them) we could find love in many different ways though...spending time watching korean drama series the whole day and night with housemates (plus a crate of beer)...hanging out with friends (although me and Jew have started to realized that there are only both us left enjoying drinking beer at every possibilities in Penang compared to previous years) and my utmost passion of having lots of DVDs to watch..haha…having said that, I’ve spread some of my love towards other living thing surrounding me...we’ve been complaining on the hot weathers since the beginning of 2010 and it was a pity to see a tree without enough leaves to be called a tree….every night after returning home from work, I gave it its need to stay alive during the hot weather…although I knew it is not belong to me to pour water or to take care of it but I couldn’t stop thinking either it will survive the weather or will not…every single day at night and sometimes during day…I poured about 2-3 liters of water at its foundation, after days of doing that I could see new tiny leaves started to grow from its dried branches…I was relieved and happy I could at least do this small part of humanitarian to my surrounding…today, after a heavy rain in more than a month, I could see more green leaves as a new beginning…

A friend has moved to KL last 2 weeks ago due to a new career path….about 9 of us had a decent dinner then continued with couple bottles of beer at the usual place (kedai kopi dusun) although the farewell wasn’t grand and happening but it was great to catch up with others…all the best to him in KL…I’ve known him since 1999 when we were in matriculation…we’ve had great times together ever since…in near time soon, perhaps another friend will be moving down to KL? If you ask me, I have no intention of moving anywhere else at the moment as I love Penang as much as I love Sabah (too bad telampau banyak pilak di Sabah makes it less attractive) It’s been over 10 years o….haha...

I’m having my day off today and I don’t really have anything in mind what to do…most likely I will be spending my time doing DVD (old) Marathon….I’m not addicted to DVD but it is a fun way to spend time, relaxing by watching many types of movies…by now I could roughly estimate 1000 DVDs in my possession (not less but it could be more as I have stopped doing the list since middle last year) sometimes watching movie trailers on Astro led me to re-watch my DVDs…this mostly due to inability to remember the exact story line….having a hobby like me, one will not need to waste time wandering in nearby shopping mall the whole day, window shopping (or shopping) then regret the day after (Sakit kaki, salah beli atau kehabisan duit..haha)
