Who is working actually?

Seriously, they should make today a 1/2 day. I know, today is just the eve of Christmas eve. But who has the mood to work anyway? Party everywhere how to do work?

Just sitting at my desk, waiting for 5:30 to come.
Oh ya, almost forgot, I got a bottle of wine.

Merry eve of X-mas eve everyone. :)

Annual X-mas eve Wine Appreciation Session


It has always been a “tradition” for the gang in my office to drink red wine in office during X-mas eve. This year is no exception.

Here is the invite I’ve send out.

Gentlemen,

You are warmly invited to our Annual Christmas Wine Appreciation Session. This year, we will be tasting a bottle of Margaux from Barton & Guestier 2002. This is a classic red wine with rich black fruit aromas and flavors and has a long, lingering finish.

The Wine Appreciation session will be held at the canteen on 23 Dec 2005 (Friday). Time is 4:30pm.

Please confirm your attendance.

Regards,
DK

Wondering if 1 bottle is enough.

The Leopard and his spot

Sometimes I wonder, can a leopard ever change its spot. I don’t know.

Recently, I’ve discover that sometimes, it is not whether the leopard wants to change its spot or not. It is whether the people around the leopard want to let him change its spot or not. And seriously, I doubt people are so kind to allow me to change.

I joke around with people. Sometimes my jokes go overboard. But just because I keep joking with people doesn’t means I want to be a clown forever. Sometimes, I want to be serious. Sometimes, I wish people will take me seriously. But nobody gave me the chance. Is it so hard to just believe for once that I’m serious?

I suppose the impression is already fixed in most people’s mind. I hate it when people come out and start putting words in my mouth. Just because I’m always kidding in the forum and buaya-ing gals for the joke of it doesnt mean that I’m a real buaya. And it doesn’t mean that I will buaya every single F***ing gal that comes into the forum. Stop coming out and say I will buaya this gal or that gal like you all know alot about me. I’m sick of all these sterotyping. I’m not in the mood to play anymore. Leave me out. Leave me alone. I have enough.

The leopard wants to change its spot. It can change its spot, provided that the people around him allow him to do so…..

RT 2 days after…

Went for RT again. Today was 2 days after the guy collapsed and die.

Anyway, instead of the usual warm up, we were told to gather for a briefing by the encik. 1 hour briefing! Ok, he is famous for giving long talks. The good thing is, his talks are always entertaining and inspiring. The bad thing is, he can keep talking all day and you don’t need to go home.

Anyway, he didn’t say what exactly is the cause. In fact, he didn’t make reference to the case at all. All he said was, we should had know that matter by now. And he goes on talking about safety stuff. From the way he said, it seems like the guy was sick that day as the encik keep saying if we are not feeling well, we should not carry on. I’m not quite sure exactly what happen.

It seems like many people have this misconceptions that RT is very xiong. I’ll like to say is, it can be rather relaxing if you want it to be. As mentioned previously, the PTI only encourage you to put in your max effort. If you don’t they also won’t push you. But if you don’t put in any effort in training, you don’t gain anything.

Things are alot better as compared to BMT 5 years ago. RT is really a physical training and not terkan session. From what I can see, all safety measures are in place. The guys at Maju had put in alot of effort to ensure safety. As such, I don’t see why people should be shooting at them. They had done a very good job. But sometimes, accident do happen. We can’t prevent all accident from happening, but we can reduce the chances of it happening.

T43 not bulletproof

Actually, I thought the IBM T43 would be bulletproof. It look tough and strong. But I guess the magnesium alloy lid is still not strong enough to block a bullet.

And someone actually proofs that T43 is not bulletproof.

So if someone wants to shoot you with a gun, don’t bother using your T43 to block.
