When Creativity Gets Overboard

2008-12-24T01:06:11.484+08:00

It has been plain sailing in KL, pretty simple holiday, just relax.It is timely for me to take some breather and to blog.Since it has been plain and dull, desmond-t decides to give you some twists he has extracted from some funny links. Theme of the day is all about exams.Here you go... People tend to get super ultra mega creative when it comes to tedious exam questions.Why not just make it simpler... and humorous?!I bet many of you may have seen this. "Expand" has numerous meaning right? Pretty unfair for the lecturer to have give him a big Wrong, well at least half mark for his creativity!He changed the whole question! This guy is out of his mind... He integrated batman into Bruce Wayne.Wakakaka...there is no limit for answers!When you can't get the answer, you'd try to get as close to the answer! He is clearly pissed off with the lecturer.Kekekekekeke!!! Can you agree more? So offensive!He truly answered on his own. Very good explanation.and yet, he/she can't be wrong!He left it to God to decide his exam grades.Hey! He got a tick for this!When questions are too hard to answer, it is suicidal!Behold, it's getting more and more funny!Wahaha...children nowadays learn the F word earlier than they learn about animals!He can draw pretty well and cool description... Holding his testes and created a kungfu gland as wellFyi, F7 key is spelling check key. Plus point with the drawing.I gladly regard this as the best answer script!This is confusing!This is insane!This is blasphemy!Cheers, have a joyous Christmas holidays![...]



Wonderful Semester Break

2008-12-09T15:09:19.167+08:00

Well, I'm done with my 7th semester in my university life. One more to go, and I will be heading to the industry or the corporate world. Working life it is.

To be true, I can't take it anymore. Studying at the age of 23 , the 16th year in a row, non-stop is a lil' bit too much. Things have changed and so is the status quo of being a teenager.

What I really want in life? I begin to ponder about my future and it looks pretty bleak with the current economy meltdown situation.

Argh... forget about it. I just want to have fun and I really had fun these past few days.

First up, Suplex 2008 Annual Camping cum Gathering. This time around, we changed the venue from Pantai Kerachut to Sg. Sedim in Kulim. After 7 years in the long stretch of beach, the venturez finally agreed for a change and indeed everyone enjoyed it very well.

Whitewater rafting for the second time was terrifying but I enjoyed it. With a higher water volume, it means higher speed, and of cos higher level of difficulty! I even flew out of my boat at the Kiss Drop, making me almost a drowned man!... It was really an experience not to be forgotten, I would say, at least it is far worse than the Giant Drop at the Dreamworld Gold Coast.

Tubing was meant to massage our backside. We got most of our injuries from tubing, cos most of us controlled our tubes badly. I was lucky to be the only one surviving the Rodeo Drop without capsizing my tube, but the cheeky raft guide finally made me surrender by toppling me upside down at the creek. I was washed away by the heavy current!

As usual, we planned for an improved lunch and BBQ dinner and this time around, everything seem to be extraordinary improved. From basic lunch of chicken rice, this time we got ourselves seafood in Portuguese Grill style! Sting rays, roasted chickens, luxury fried rice, and calamari... WOW! The food is always too much to be savoured.

Lastly, we went to the Restaurant Kolam Ikan at Mahang. This restaurant is well known and even promoted by Jason a.k.a Ah Xian in the Food TV Series "Taste With Jason" at Astro AEC Channel 301. Fresh water fishes caught directly from the ponds behind the restaurant thus making the food superbly fresh and fresh and FRESH!

and now, I'm back in KL with a smile. At least, I enjoyed myself to the max before I return to my sorrowful life of studying...rubbing my backache now... Sigh...

Cheap Food Coming Soon

2008-11-21T23:20:52.920+08:00

I just came back from a sumptuos meal from PJ area. A very cheap meal indeed with hell lot of a discount. Yes, it is a very rare occasion that you can actually find discount on food. What's more when it is not a fast food deal, it is just and ordinary stall and you can see so obvious that people start flocking to the restaurant when the promotion period begins.

Awesomely cheap food and the food taste equally nice. Hardly you can find such type of deal in KL. Desmond-t going to recommend to you all this nice food place and for the moment, please stay tuned to this blog.

Beginning to drool already? Hehe... That's what life is for, to live by great food is such a way to enjoy life. We live to eat, not eat to live. That's the way life should be, at least for Desmond-t. LOL That's all for now, till then, stay tuned.

Cheers and bon appetite!

What's Happening at My v2.0 Blog

2008-11-21T01:02:54.693+08:00

If you're looking for food, the whole month of October and November 2008 was just terrific for food hunting with Desmond-t. Here are the latest excerpt of food-blog:

Also, coming soon are the food hunting galore in KL featuring cheap RM5.00 western food, Chilli Pan Mee at Kin Kin Restaurant (Chow Kit), Chocolate Mill Crepe at Food Foundry SS17, and many more.

Yes, examinations period has just concluded. Desmond-t is a free man, again. While he is setting his mind free for at least a couple of weeks, more adventures are coming up. Perhaps more food hunting? Tanjung Tualang massive prawns maybe coming up again... My second visit there since it was so mesmerizing that the succulent taste of the prawn still lingers in my mind till today!

Not forgetting it's exercise time! Time to work out my feeble little body and at least have some shape on my body. It has bee really plain and boring two months. It is time to get going again! Gym, here I come!

Football and futsal are definitely not to be missed. Desmond-t is searching for more futsal kaki to play with in KL and PJ areas while EPL (or BPL you guys call it now) weekends are not to be missed! Gosh, I missed so many matches throughout this season! Go Manchester United all the way!

With Formula1 season just ended with a rather dissapointing finish to my hero Felipe Massa, let's hope Ferrari would have a good testing season right now and wrestle the title back to Ferrari drivers.

What else? Hell yeah, holidays definitely means more and more blogging time! It's time to revive all my blogs! Be it my v1.0, v2.0 blogs and my music portal, full of updates from today onwards!

Recently, I put up my ads back again from Advertlets, which meant I no longer have my Glitterati status in Nuffnang. How does that affect my earnings? Hmm, many said that Advertlets don't pay well or rather don't pay at all...How true is that? Shall I revert back to be a Glitterati member again? Heck, recently no ads from Nuffnang to me as well LOL.

Guess it does not make any difference to me ya?

Stay tune for more updates and keep on drooling!

Latest excerpt from desmond-t.com's blog:

Sunway Lagoon Adventure

2008-09-14T20:25:17.746+08:00

Last Friday, I finally stepped my foot again to the Sunway Lagoon Water and Theme Park. It's been a while since I last went there - 8 freaking years, "a while" huh? LOL

The feeling was close to the rubber band situation, stretched to the limits and waiting to be ruptured apart.

New Semester, New Challenge

2008-07-31T21:07:20.282+08:00

It is going to be a challenge indeed.
10 more months before my graduation.
Simply means this is the toughest period in my varsity life.
Thesis being my primary challenge.
I'm totally new and ain't knowing anything that I might be expecting.
Prof. Haseeb's killing spree is back again, chopping down's everyone's CGPA.
New lecturer's dismal showing, walking off classes sort off having a guy-PMS.
Nevertheless, to live away from Penang, away from family and my bi... it sucks.
Knowing more financial crisi might be hitting me in future, that's worrying.
All I have to bear in mind right now, is just to persevere pass this 10 freaking months!
p/s: Oops, one month already passed. So it is 10-1= 9 gruelling months left!

The Day I Left Intel...

2008-05-31T14:19:51.752+08:00

First of all, welcome me back to the blogsphere!It's been relatively more than a month since I last blogged.Limited connectivity to the internet and tiredness from work made me even lazier to blog.Anyway and anyhow, yesterday I finally completed my internship at Intel Technology, Penang. It was an emotional feeling after enduring 6 months of working environment. I must conclude that I would never have any better learning experience in my life other than training at Intel. Initially, I never wanted to start internship life but now...I never want it to end.It all came to me as a surprise, right from the day I attempted to apply for an internship position. I was told that Intel only accept undergrads with excellent CGPA, that's where in my mind was thinking that Intel really have quota and specialized training for undergrads. Yes, in fact according to several engineers. I was interviewed by this guy who later became my supervisor.I would say I was totally clueless on how my interview turned out to be. After numerous offers from various multinational companies, I decided to pick Intel. Yea, they were the first to reply to me and I prolly accepted. That's where my journey began.Back in 3rd December, I put myself for the first time in the industrial world. Without a single knowledge of any of Intel backgrounds, I came to learn from scratch of what is a chipset and how it was produced. Interesting? Well, as a materials engineering undergrad, honestly I do not think I have any major role to play in Test Department. My take was a pure gamble, as I am so sick about materials. I headed for manufacturing instead, moreover it's in high volume manufacturing.My internship brought me to highlight two excellent individuals. Two of which I would pay tribute for shaping me to be who I am today. Both of them were my bosses, my coaches and most of all... my friends. Without them, my tenure in Intel will be like those lost souls that were left neglected in the hectic and tensed office and production floors. I salute their relentless effort in guiding me... tireless and patience in training me eventhough I've made mistakes. Even if they were in deepest of troubles, they would be just calm and focused. What's more when they never forget to wear a smile and can still be humorous during problematic times. This totally changed my approach towards a true definitive working life.I myself believe it was not about work and only work in Intel. These people showed me how important networking was and how to engage myself with people regardless of their background. There comes the sweet memories in the lounge where I get to know so many people. Big time managers to small time interns, all were there just to mingle around and have fun. This is the place where they treat interns just like other engineers as well, unlike certain places where interns were treated like cheap labours and slaves. Well, I shall not forget to mention that's where I'd picked up foosball too. LOLApart of meetings, trainings, maintenance programs, assignments, experiments, trackings, audits, reports, data crunching... it never ends there. Gym sessions, makan-makan sessions, car test-drives sessions which were all during off working hours were pure fun and fantastic.There's so many activities that I've played my part in Intel, all of them have their special memories and most of them were just amazing. I knew I can never finish mentioning all the great time I had over there, but there is only one thing that I can do... which is to sincerely thank each and every Intelier that had coloured my life in the past 6 months. It was just.[...]



My New Fav Past Time

2008-04-26T11:26:46.633+08:00

I went to Torch for a drink last weekend.
Initially it was all about Man Utd vs Middlesbrough match.
But found this T3000 Tornado table there.
Irrestitable it was.
All of us had a few games.
Addictive it was.

The table feeling was totally different of what I used to.

Now I know the difference between Tornado and Torpedo tables.

Tornado rocks!

...

So, foosball anyone? Gime a call!

Here I kick off my Jalan-jalan Cari Makan Road Trip series of post.My very first trip would be to the Japanese Restaurant at Leith Street, Penang.This restaurant is unique in the sense that they focus in the prison environment.Speaking about prison, this diner provides you an insight of Michael Scofield in Prison Break a prison.Nice ambience they have. Overall, the food is edible and mainly it is the presentation that makes them special.Tonnes of pictures ahead.At the Main Entrance of Obake-Ya. The Prison Gate. Obake-Ya Prison Signboard, similar to Prison de Sona?Upon reception it is already scary... death sentence execution.The Electric Chair This ghostly creature will "warmly" welcome you with "open hands"Off you go to your prison cell a.k.a tableThis prison serves Sake! Not bad huh? The tables at the side, near the wall. Filled with chains and rocks.The tables at the inner part of the shop.The creepy swerving walkway to hell the restroom.It was "heaven" in the toilet. So clean one... Bamboo made piping and authentic Japanese ambience.Back to the walls, with spiders and creepy crawlies.It was looming dark inside... Pitch dark it is...with constant screams and yell from the audio systems.Scary and mysterious.The mini sushi bar with skull and skeletons. Me with the menu.I was wondering prison also got menu.I thought I was going to eat whateva they'd offer for the nite.Prison style ma...The setting. Kicap and spices on the wall racks.This is my Sukiyaki set with an raw egg.Chawamushi as appetizer.Japanese Bibimbap - assorted rice with chicken, vege and egg.It serves with Miso soup as well.Plus the yucky grilled chicken skin sticksMe at the prison counter...Sigh, nowadays... prisoners also need to pay for their food.So, do you still want to be in prison?[...]

Hokkien-English Joke

2008-04-13T14:11:32.468+08:00

Once upon a time, a group of Ah Bengs stepped into a lounge.

They wanted the DJ to play the song "Ah Cheng Buey Ro Ti".
(In Hokkien means Ah Cheng buys bread)

The DJ told them that they only have English songs and told them to re-select another song.

The Ah Bengs were very angry and kicked up a bigfuss, claiming the DJ was insulting them.

The manager had to intervene in order to calm them down.

Finally, after long talk with Ah Bengs, the manager found out that Ah Bengs actually asking for the song "Unchained Melody" by the Righteous Brothers.
