Happening lately?Not really..

I guess its about time i continue my blog again for my "THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS" of valued readers of "Just too good to be true" to let them know on my latest updates.

Ok, for the past few weekends, i've been going to a nightclub called MOIS.

I've been going there so frequently on weekends that if a bouncer or the boss over there wouldn't recognise me or give me the VIP treatment that I should be accorded with, It would have definitely be a BLUFF!

Now I don't know about you, but this few weekend happens to be the same thing.

First, you accidentally come too early only noticing that you have an empty table or so called bed.


Then you wait and sit around waiting for other "happening" people to show up.



Other happening people are also waiting for other happening people to show up.


They have not arrived yet. The sight of the glass instead of happening people really tells you what clubbing should never be.



Then before you know it, you take pictures with new girls that you have been newly introduced only to know that both of you could either be a hi bye friend or sadly unacknowledged existence being in the next meet up.


Then drinking starts.

Soon, from one bottle


becomes two bottles.



And then before you know it. CAMWHORE!!CAMWHORE!!



The rest of the story is in the popular fashion website in Malaysia called cynfashion.

I hope this post wraps up on my doings for the past few weeks because really, umm, this is the only most happening thing i've been doing every week. Sad isn't it!hmm...

Malaysian Politicians Fail to Serve

I am going to write this before I go for dinner before I continue with what I did today. I feel that after reading the newspaper just now, I must express how sad I am on how this politicians today should even be respected or elected at the first place.

There are so many problems with our public transportation in Malaysia.



There are so many problems with our hospitals with long waiting time to get health treatment.

There are so many poor Malaysians including myself not earning enough to have proper meals.

There are so many problems with corruption going on throughout the country.

There are so many problems with so many dropouts in schools.

There are so many Malaysians still having no access to education.

There are so many Malaysians still unable to get clean water to their homes.

There are so many Malaysians who is unable to cope with the increase in petrol prices.

There ARE JUST SO MANY PROBLEMS!!

and then all we have today is high powered politicians "ELECTED TO SERVE" quarreling among one another over "cry me a river" issues.

I think its about time someone stood up and talk "what they can do for their Kampongs and City's that they serve" instead of wasting our time hearing racial talks and history.

Sigh now i'm going to have dinner thinking that maybe if some politicians were to ever read this. I'll read something different in the newspaper tomorrow.

I just watched Hancock on DVD

Here's a very short movie review since i'm rather free at the moment.

Last night I just watched Hancock.


That's right guys! Its been that loooonnngg.

I actually listened to my friends (who is forever up-to-date with movies) and waited this long to watch it on DVD since its release in the cinema awhile back, which luckily I did listen.

As for the movie.....(I know its a little too late for any review but i'm going to tell you what i feel anyway without elaborating too much on details, actually no details at all)

I know I have the DVD.



I know the whole whale thing looks cool..


and I know Charlize Theron is hot.

but overall..hmmm...it will get lost somewhere in my DVD stack.

Penang experiences southwest monsoon in September

Ok, I'm writing this, so I will remember what not to do when every September comes. Like umm, don't make plans that involves outdoor activities.

If there was any one time of the year that we Penangites should be given free water to use, it would be September.

This is the month that we experience the most rainfall which is already nearing the end of the southwest monsoon season. (for those of you who don't know)

To cut the story short, i'm actually writing this post because I can't help but show you guys of the pictures I took with my faithful Canon IXUS 960 IS last Saturday before I DELETE them.


Penang was raining so much until the skies turned blue at night.



Its just good to be at the right place at the right time to witness such phenomenon while I was on my way up to Tanjung Bunga.




sigh...I KNOW MY ART IS BEAUTIFUL....

I think too much

I've not experienced Relationship Drama in my life for a very long time.

So looong that I couldn't possibly remember how it tasted like. (I could only remember the taste from my KFC I just had for dinner just now and thats it!!)

As pathetic as it may sound, all I can do is imagine the kind of drama I would have to go through if I kept on going after her and not wanting to wait for one year.

I can't help but think, the drama would turn out like this. Watch the video..



As high as her expectations can be, I know that after looking at this video, she will lower her expectation a little bit.

Sometimes happiness is with the guy that you least expect.(Gosh, Why do I just love this last sentence?hmm...)

So maybe ronda ronda and hear music through my new MP3 player?

She has High Expectations

I'm only writing this because I don't want to forget it.

What i'm going to share with you all is a girl that I met two days ago (of course i did not spend the whole day seeing reservoirs!!)for a friendly drinking session of which I got to know her better.

Somehow, my meet up with her soon turned out to be an interview.

She loves to chill at Bagan.

She loves to drink Wine

She has taken up a few Salsa Dancing classes before. (actually pro la don't want to say only)

She doesn't like clubbing but does go like once a month.

She knows how to give you medicine when you're ill

She can speak Mandarine

She loves to cook.

She desires to open her own business one day.

She doesn't talk bad about her ex-boyfriends.

Now this is definitely true, I didn't set the place or time for our meetup. She did although I was actually asking her out. Ok lucky it was only in Gurney Plaza. Not the anything and whatever kind of girl.

umm wat else...

She's binded to a contract of 4 years working in Penang which means that you will not need to worry if there will ever be a long distance relationships anytime in-between.

She is determined to marry at the age of 26 to 27 there.

She would love to have 2 to 3 kids.

She is looking for older men as they are more...

let me stress this out loud..

MORE MATURED??

They should have a stable income and job by then.Should la.

She prefers taller men.

She doesn't like Ah Beng or Tu Kau. (Sorry ahh...if you are thinkin or dunno you are that type arr)

She keeps up-to-date with movies in the cinema. Don't be too late in asking her out for movies or else she would have watched it already.

She goes for movies on Wednesday because its cheaper to watch on Wednesday. You know, RM6 per person. (She can save money aeh!)

She loves to sing, spending some of her time in Red Box.

Let me put it this way, If you can't sing, act, or dance. You're on the wrong queue buddy!


She likes a guy who is Ambitious with great goals in life to achieve.

She loves to be showered with Love.

She doesn't really desire gifts as a way of showing your love for her.

She is simple yet sophisticated.

She doesn't umm do any sports except maybe badminton (I mean how difficult can it get to hit a shuttle around)

Her guy has to be fairly good looking.

Her guys has to be nice.

She thinks that Ferengghi Garden is the most romantic place she's ever been in Penang. She adds that you could bring in your own red wine and dine and you wouldn't be charged a corkage fee.

She prefers Starbucks to Coffee Bean.

Now I could carry on the whole day with what may seem as an interview, until I asked her whether I could take her out for another date like lunch, dinner or something after calculating my savings, Fd's , Shares, and minor assets like laptops and handphone in my head.

I was ambitious at the point of time that I was definitely the guy to suit her needs. Guess what she said.

She told me that she was not looking for at least one year.

Oh ok. I guess that says EVERYTHING ISN' T IT!! Dammit!!

Guillemard Reservoir

Yesterday, I decided to visit Guillemard Reservoir.

That's right. A beautiful holiday spent visiting historical sites instead of watching Death Race in the cinema.


Oh wait...here is a small introduction to what is Guillemard Reservoir all about for those of you who don't know.

"A WATER Department within the George Town City Council was established, headed by a Municipal Water Engineer, Mr.J. D. Fettes. In the 1920's, a notable achievement by the department was the development of water resources on the north side of the Island, where a 7km pipelines was built inside a tunnel. A 600mm diameter pipelines brought water from the streams of the Batu Ferringi Valley to a service reservoir in Tanjung Bungah, known as Guillemard Reservoir."


Ok I admit I really did not know any of that before but anyhow I decided with such nice weather and having not been there for at least 8 years since my scouting days, I decided to pay that place a visit again.

How can I not go to such a place when there are pictures like this of Guillemard on the internet.



With some of the buildings that look like they were built by aliens ready to fly off to another planet.


Looking at all that, how can this place be not swarmed with tourists!!


With that, on a nice and cloudy day in the early morning, I decided to drive up the road that is known as the "Vale of Tempe" (I really have no idea how to spell it, correct me if i'm wrong) behind Tanjung Bungah and discover the Guillemard Reservoir.

You might think that such an historical site and scenic view would leave me without a single parking space.

I was wrong.

I was the only one parked there.



How can this be when its a public holiday!!

Judging from the lack of response from not even a single tourist in sight besides umm me, I decided to go ahead since i'm already there.

First of all, there is no sign to show you its Guillemard Reservoir.



I think someone stole it and sold the sign for recycling purposes. (How caring we Malaysian's are?)

Then you walk up a nicely tarred road.



Looking down, you could see all the cars using the Vale of Tempe.




At a short distance away, you walk up a few stairs.



And there you are.



THE PLACE WAS LOCKED!! Not even a a single soul was around to greet me.



Not even a hot girl dressed like an SIA stewardess would welcome you to the Reservoir.



Wait maybe that's alittle too much. (You know lack of pay)

Not even a Guard that was there to welcome us and open the gates for us and tell us a small history about the place.



NOTHING!!There was nobody!!

How can this place be so unguarded when there are like a few hundred thousand people depending on the water over there!!

What is the possibily that some crazy maniac decides to poison a quarter of the population in Penang??


Sadly...All I could do was walk around.

Even then, the walk was very short. All you could see was this that you have no idea what the building was all about.



And when you know that you start taking pictures of Ants,



You know you just got to go back home.

Spending less than 10 minutes, although its free to go to this tourist site,

Even these old men felt sad about what has happened to the place since the old days.



And what more, having to risk their lives again crossing the road back to the car.



I can't help but notice why I even took Garbage thrown at the car park area.


All I know is, this has definitely got to be the quickest historical site visit i have ever been.

Time for you to call them up and tell them all the "UNUSUAL" things going on there.
