For self or for the World?

For this few days, I ve been thinking a lot about life and our surroundings.

I often ask myself. Can't I just live my own live in my own pace ? I wanted things to be my own way in life. I don't want to be carried away by pressures and influences.

Practially, I think I can't

looking back to the past..

Christmas Dinner 2006

Christmas Dinner 2007

Christmas 2008

Christmas dinner 2009

Except for the year 2008, I was not around in Muar to celebrate Christmas with church members and family members.

Looking back at the pictures, I realise I dont seems to change much, in terms of looks and my fashion sense, and this puzzled me ! If you take a closer look at all the pictures, most of them have change. Really, just observe.

Well, last year I missed celebrating Christmas a lot , perhaps because it has become a routine that it is a must for me to go back to Muar during this season of hope and love.

As time goes by, more and more people will just get involved in their own church activities in big cities, some spending their christmas abroad due to studies, some may already family in other cities or countries. As a result, lesser and lesser people will be back in muar anymore.

Its really a heartwarming thing to be able to gather with all those church yam cha kaki almost every year. Nowadays, I m no longer the youngest among them! Even then, lesser and lesser people will come back to Muar for Christmas in the years to come.

A trick on me??

I ve been wanting to pOst something here since a few days ago, but nth specific came into my mind. But, now here I am. At least I have something to write it down again

Today is a typical Sunday where I go to church in the morning, typical in the sense that at least it is until afternoon before I headed up back to kl.

As I reach KL, after parking the car as usual I pressed the auto gate button. No matter how hard I press, still no movements. At last I figured out that the electricity in the house tripped again! Well, I took out the bunch of keys I have and took out d 1 for the gate. I inserted it into the key hole in the hope that the auto gate can be opened. Little did I expect that the keys failed me!!! As I turn gently, it broke into two seperate pieces.

Really didn't know what to do. Plan to climb over but looking at my body size it's a bit hard because the wall is quite high and there are sharp ends on top of it. Decided to roam around oug and look for a lock smith! I saw 1 of the number and I phoned!

He told me today is Sunday, they are not willing to help!

To cut the story short, at last I brave my self to climb over into the house. I realized that I can't be a good thieve!

Some bruises on the legs and hands, and sprain my back a little. No big deal.

Was v happy when I get into the house. Happily taking my box of watercake from muar to the kitchen.

As I took the first step into the kitchen, I fell down HARD!!

My spectacles flew itself away from me, a few grapes drop out of the plastic bag, the plastic bag which I was holding flew at least 40 cm away from me. I felt the pain. Only to realize I was sitting on a pool of water!! That s the cause of my fall. Dunno where did the water came from. Sat down on d floor a couple of minutes before I manage to get up.

Well. In every circumstances praise God!

I thank God because my spectacles is not broken
I thank God because my backbone is not broken
I thank God for the journey mercies he had granted me
I thank God because I finally manage to find my own way into the house
I thank God for He is always watching over me although sometimes we don't even know He is.

I'm so amazed!

Soon it was prayer time,each of us went up to a kid,asked for prayer request and we prayed.

I chose a 15 year old guy. I asked whether he has anything to pray for and his needs. He juz answered me a simple sentence.

"I want to grow closer and be closer to God""

Nothing else, only this.

This is so fifferent from what the other kids 1. Wow

It's Christmas Time Again

Currently sitting in the bus, looking out the window. Apart from the jam. Decorations can be seen. For Christmas of course. This reminds me of the thoughts that I have when seeing dear singing Christmas carols in Tine Square 2 weeks ago. Christmas? Santa claus? Christmas trees? Giving of prezzies? Nothing wrg with all this.

But never once treat Christmas as X'mas as it would make lots of difference

Gone away from me, but back again to me

As I came back from college on sunday and after eating my dinner, the maid said to me
"ah boy, minta maaf, telipon yang merah itu jatuh bawah tingkap.Saya mau keluar ambil, tapi orang lain sudah ambil"
When i heard of this I knew it was a lie. Actually I just wanted this matter to rest. However, she came into my room again and say sorry . Hah! She came and find for her own trouble.
I asked her how did it drop and she gave me ridiculous explanation. I stared, I raise my voice and I use some psychology. Asked the same question for like 15 minutes. She was quite tough i must say. I persisted. At last,
she return my Nokia to me. To be found under the washing machine.
Cunning people. Cant judge them by how good they work and treat you. Who knows she comes to my room everyday and play with my phones.
I gave her a strict warning never to touch and open my cupboards again.

Internet tethering

As what Daniel says " Ppl normally will only find jamban when they need to release" :) ... Yesterday when I was in the midst of onlining. The internet connection went abit kuku. I need to internet connection urgently.
So, I decided to try on Internet Tethering using my phone. To my utter amazement, it works very well. It uses the 3g connection on the phone to connect my laptop to the internet. Now I've found a new way to use up my free 500 mb maxis 3g internet usage..
This function is available for most of the phoens but just normally we didnt take notice of it.

Pls do not test my patience..

I believe i have a right in this. That's why I m writting about it . My blog is meant for my feelings. I do not care who is actually reading.

As the title suggest, dont test my patience

Never ever once I've studied in the "dark" before. NEVER. Ok, fine i know you need to sleep. But u must understand I need to study . Its ok if you ask me whether you can switch off the lights. But today, you have gone overboard. You off my lights without asking. What is this? Is this something that a special person like you will do. You need to know the lamp IS NOT bright enough for me. I've been studying in this condition for like few days now.

And yea, cant you tidy up your things instead of scattering all over the place. Taken half of my table already, after putting my laptop. What space do i have somemore?How am I suppose to do my assignments which requires me to have a few notes n books on the table?I really cant stand the untidyness. My room has NEVER reach this level before.
Even on the floor, all the things block my cupboard door, how am i suppose to take my attires?
yea, moral of the story.
Sharing a room is a no-no. I'll stick to my plan.
Pls pls be more considerate. I have done my part.

I'm already dreaming to be a big and successful boss

As Mr Loo Kai Teik and I were walking around Ampang Lookout Point that day during Jenna's birthday. I noticed that there is a very big apportunity for me to invest there. The atmosphere, dining,location is so right but just lack of 1 thing.


If I've the capital now , I will not hesitate to invest, like seriously. I'll hand in my proposal to the relevant authority and start building my own hotel/chalet there. There is nothing to suggest that this idea wont work like seriously. The amount of ppl going there everyday says of its beautiful scenery there and I'm sure that there are tourist who will wish to stay there for a night or two. It may well be a substitute for Genting. I want to be the 2nd Lim Goh Tong. I'll be more than happy if any big bosses of any large cooperation are willing to invest in this and I'll make this a success . I hope they are reading this.

This is actually closely link with my dream of building up my own cafe and I can link all this together.

Feel free to call me and be my partner if you are interested to build another "Genting" in Ampang Lookout Point

The evolution of handphones

Ever wondered how handphones evolve over time in the say,pass 20 years?

Yea, here it goes,

Enjoy appreciating it. As you look back to all those old old phones, you will really think wow there has really been a tremendous improvement in terms of design and functionality. However, ppl often say as time goes by, handphones become smaller. I do not quite agree with this, as you can see from the picture below, it has been constantly changing from a big to small and small to big fashion.

One thing can be true, not the phone gets smaller or bigger. Its actually the screen which makes the difference.

I'm actually quite proud of the amout of collections that I have. Not that literal meaning of proud of course. The 1 mobile phone that I'm still yearning for is the 1 older than what is shown in the picture. The very big 1 which normally ppl name it "dai ko dai". Looks a bit like a water bottle, anyone wants to do charity and supply me with 1? I will not yearn for the even older than the "dai ko dai" phone since it actually cost like 20k to buy it last time.

So far, the 1 phone that I've never tried is Blackberry which can be said as the queen of mobile phones for now.

Anyone wants to trade their phones with me ? :)

Dare to be Daniel

Have been wanting to post something about my thoughts since yesterday, but the guilt and the passion to study Law of Trust deters me from doing so. Since, at last , yeah at last i manage to finish the lecture pack on Section 53(1)(c) LPA 1925, the guilt is gone and I can blog freely now. I would say that just 1 subsection and its enough to confuse us for a few weeks.

Well back to what I wanted to blog about. Humans, everyone is subjected to the views of other people. I guess this what we call it as judging somebody. Whether you like it or not, that's the fact. Its hard for people in a sense to not judge a person when they first met or even after being friends for some time and more often that not , we tend to infer something on them . Lets call it human nature. It's perfectly fine, although in principal its still wrong to judge a person by looking just at their appearance if the judgement to a certain extent is right. You have a loser face, therefore you are a loser. This happens so often in our society.

This leads me to think. Am i suppose to give people a good impression in terms of outlook and even character? So that in people's eyes and mind they will think that, * wow, daniel is cool man, he is clever man, he is a gadget freak, and the list goes on and on*

For all that have happened to me, since my childhood days till now, I guess what i need to do is just to be myself. If people want to think me as someone who is incapable of doing things, so be it. As long as I am able to be accountable to my own self and satisfied with what I've achieved.

What i commonly encounter will be, Daniel is a joker, he is in a way childish. Btw, this explains why kids like to play with me . What I m going to tell myself is,just dare to be Daniel. Why change for the sake of changing people's impression ? Of course I m not saying that we should not change, change although is good, but when you change to much, you will lost the essence of yourself!

Daniel is who Daniel is .

People can say all they 1. I am me , me am I ... :)

Life is like ........

As i looked down where everyone is happily ice-skating in Sunway Pyramid this afternoon, I cant help but to think that life is exactly like ice-skating in the skating ring.

As we walk through the journey of life, at first, when we are immature and young, we will always fall just like how the newbies experienced it in the skating ring.We will always want to hold on to something.

As we grow up, we began to be responsible for our own doings in life. Occasionally we may fall, but it is family and friends who will give us a lending hand and pull us up again.

As we grow ever older with experience and hard knocks of life. We began to skate gracefully in the skating ring, embracing new skills and new ways of skating and even dancing. However,the crucial point is this. No matter how skillful a person may be, some how or rather he will also fall. No one will stand in the lime light and always stand and lie on their laurels with no failures.

Life is like skating in the skating ring..

My thoughts

Currently lying down on the bed,blogging about my thoughts today.Went to Section 14 McD to study with dear today. Spent 3 hours just on my land law assignment this morning before meeting dear. Just can't imagine how I can concentrate for such a long duration.

Before I went there, I went to the bank again,obviously to withdraw money. My cost of living has increased since my new semester starts. Feel guilty everytime I go to the bank. Just before I entered into the bank, I have only rm1.50 in my purse. Pathetic right? I didn't spend on other things except for food n parking.

Was talking to dear regarding how should we apportion our money when we start working. A question cropped up in my mind. How much should I give my parents when I start working in a few years time?assuming my initial income will be rm2000. Of course I wish to give them as much as I can, but seeing my current spending and basing on that rm2000 is really nothing. Perhaps what I can afford to give them is just really minimal.equivalent to what they are giving me each week or maybe two weeks now. When I think of it, it's really not fair for them.

People often say raising up a child is just like making an investment,but will this investment of my parents be worthwhile?

I hope I can afford to give them high yield and dividends when I am capable to do so.

On a side note,just had koko krunch as my supper. I will think that is it really pathetic! How nice if I am in Muar.take the car key and off I go for ah peng wan tan mee or fried kueu tiow or whatever that fancies my taste bud.

It's about time to sleep. Having tutorials tomorrow and I shall study hearsay rule in the library tommorrow morning.

Nasi kemal sotong will be an appropriate breakfast for me tmr! Cheap and nice.

After two and a half year...

What I want to say is that , after two and a half years, technology improves.. :) ... nah no, I'm not that lame. I remembered clearly that when I first bought my O2 Xda Atom phone, which is also my first PDA phone, I said that this is the phone for me, there is no longer a need to change and substitute this phone with another newer phone. Simply because this is an all in 1 phone. Looking at the technology back then, this can be classified as one of the high end phones but occupies a middle level in the category PDAs.

Owing a PDA phone at that time and taking a stylus out and poke on the screen was my cup of tea back then. It was really cool to me, I like every single bit of this phone, although now I stil heart it, but not as much as before. For a gadget lover like me, I think that when we talk about not changing phones, we meant for the time being. Yes, a good phone will tend to attract my attention and prevent me from losing interest it in within a short period of time. I think I need to qualify myself, as long as technology doesnt stop improving,the tendency and urge to change phone is still there, its just a matter of time and duration.

Looking back too, this phone has all the functions that I want, ranging from a touch screen to having wifi connectivity and what more it runs on a Windows Mobile 5 platform. So its cool to think that you are bringing a windows mobile device in your pocket and can serve the internet as and when I like.


Two and a half years down the road, as technology improves, of course the urge to change a better technology phone is there, what more this is the phone that most of the people in the world are longing for. Till now, more than 20 millions set had been sold worldwide and mind you, they have only 3 models since the first launching of the Iphone 2g. 3 models with minimal changes I could say compared to HTC and Window Mobile based mobile phones, and the market share of them is already that high.

What's the difference then between this two?
Both of it is still a phone, like hmm obviously, both has wifi connectivity, image viewer, video functions , camera.

The obvious and significant difference I think lies with the interface of this two different phones, the extremely user friendly interface of Iphone with just less that 5 buttons on the phone and it complements which each other pretty well!Second will be in terms of graphics. Thirdly, the quality of the camera. This I must say is a significant changes in the technology 2 years back and after.

Last time, when you talk about having a all in 1 pda phone . This actually meant that certain areas have to be compromise. It will not be prefect and will not be satisfied with all the functions it provides. Why then buy I bought and crave for the pda for so long ? Well, it was 1 of the best during that time, but now it is not longer applicable.

Principle is simple, its like if you have a plate of fried mee and you have no options, you will surely choose the fried mee instead of not eating it at all . Since now, there is a choice of eating fried mee and hmm perhaps, jogoya buffet. Of course, Jogoya buffet will prevail leaving the price of it aside. This principle fits in well with choosing a phone as well .. :) ..

The camera of the xda atom is really bad. In order for me to take a picture, it takes up to 7 seconds to take a short. Yea, imagine that. Now, with the iphone 3gs, within a second its all done. The megapixels of it may be the same, but the technology and lense used, it makes a vast difference.

In terms of wifi connectivity, the time taken to connect( xda atom ) is about 10 seconds, and for the iphone, as soon as you on the homescreen, the wifi will automatically connect. It may not seems to have that significant difference on paper, but when you start using it, you will start to realise it.

Iphone has something that xda atom did not have too. The sensors attached to the phone, this is the technology that all of the mobile companies are trying to copy right now especially HTC but Apple is still the champion in this market. Apple is the trend setter and all the mobile companies are striving hard to come up with their standards and hopefully gain back their market share.

With just a few finger gestures, the iphone can cater to your needs. Gone are the days when I need to use the stylus almost everytime when I'm using the phone. Fingers are all you need for an iphone and some buttonless motions, sometimes finger gestures need not come to play at all !

In terms of functionality, I would 100% agree that Iphone is still not the best phone, there are quite a lot of functions that are present in a Windows based mobile phone and not iphone.

But what makes iphone so popular?
Simply because it is the product of Apple Inc! There are truth in this statement, trust me. All the while their products are seen to be high end. It only takes some form of more advance technology to lure more customers and people wil just forget functions that they didnt provide in an Iphone . Their strategic planning is really superb.

As what Chiew Ee said, the type of phone that we take can really create a different impression of us by others and this is crucial for a future lawyer i guess? :)

Food Review- Station 1 Cafe

I was very hungry when both Mian yi and I visited Station 1 Cafe for our dinner in OUG Plaza. The first time i went was in april or may this year when we are rushing to finish revising and preparing for exams. I remembered I went there once with Erna as well.

The environment there, as compared to other franchized based cafe is considered to be cosy, relaxing and confortable. There is no room for complain here.

When I open and look through the entire menu, the food looks really nice and mouth watering. After flipping front and back for a couple of times, I've decided to order Sweet and Spicy Chicken Rice which cost Rm11.90. I would not say that the price is expensive considering the environment and kind of service they provide. However, the food is to me, totally unsatisfactory. Remember I said that I'm really hungry when we visited the cafe? and yea, I'm not a picky eater especially when I'm hungry. This meal/dinner just simply cant satisfy my taste buds. The fried chicken is not crispy but more towards the hard side. I think they just didnt bother to defroze it properly or perhaps the quality of the chicken is at the very beginning not satisfactory. The rice on the other hand, some are clog together in a lump and some are not being cook thoroughly. Generally speaking, their food are just unsatisfactory. I would prefer to go Uncle Sam's cafe and the food is much more better/ way more better than this.

It looks good, but it doesnt taste like how it look! The thing about franchized based cafes is this. Yea, they are popular hang out places since they are providing free wifi services and some even have singers to entertain you while you are eating. Very often, the food fall below the standards as compared to shops/ cafes that are not francized based. Food with a more expensive price tag but the quality and taste of it is not up to the standard required.

It's fine if you go there for a drink, chill-out and study. That was what we did, but food wise, Station 1 Cafe is not "The" place to go.

In the feedback form, a question was asked. When you think of western food, will you think of station 1.

My answer is definately a NO!.. :)

will they sue me for defamation? Nah, I will think of a defence if they really sue me .. haha

Enough of pictures

It has been a while since i blog and pen down something without pictures doing most of the talking.

How's life treating me lately?

Well i would say that I'm really blessed in the material sense. Now,I am in possesion of my sister's car since she is in muar. This has safe up a lot of hassle of needing to waste time waiting for the bus, and since the bus fair is so high now , it does not actually justify the time waiting for it. I can say that, what ever i want, I have it now. Having a car makes a huge load of a difference. Well, I will not go down the list 1 by 1 but in short, I'm just so contented with it. Occasionally of course, I'll sit the bus since the fuel price is not cheap also and I m not from a filthy rich family. My needs are all met, really and I am so thankful for that.Not forgetting to mention it AGAIN, my iphone had arrived last monday. Have been playing with it while I am studying. Kills my boredom.

On a different issue, a couple of weeks ago, I was chatting with Rachel in the library and I said to her that I'm those kind of person which can only focus on one thing before I can continue with my other stuff. It makes it quite hard for me to really sit down and study before the installation and charity nite. She told me something , which I think I've benefited from it. She said, this is a very good practice to prepare us to our future working environment in a few years time. Lawyers will not only handle a case at a time . There will be handful of cases and this is what I really need to learn, juggle a few things at 1 time. I have to tune my brain to do that.

I'm not sure whether this is what ppl always termed it as peer pressure. While i was browsing through my facebook. I can say that most of my friends life are so happening, even more so when they come up to KL. I wonder to myself, why am I stil the "old fashioned" me. Never visited a pub or any happening events which are happening around KL. Seldom go sing K with friends, seldom go shopping. I am not saying that I want to follow my friend's footstep to be happening almost everynight. But i think i need to learn to be more sociable and indulge my self with more social activities with my friends which recently discover, some are really very active in this and still score well in examinations.

I need to study hard, very hard if I want to get good grades, but at the same time, I'll give my self a bit more free time to socialise.Which i think is healthy.

Man cannot live on bread alone everyday. Daniel cannot live with law books everyday too

Wanted to complete a whole chapter on Land Law today, but I guess I cant finish it tonight since the pages that I need to read is tremendous. In fact, I cant even imagine that I can finish reading the whole chapter by tonight:)

A learning process-climbing the stairs

Take note of Watson's face, He looks so stress and sorrowful.

"woof woof, I'm finally up here"

Now he has another challenge, how to get down of the stairs.
Due to the tension and stress, he slept for the whole day the following day and refuse to eat his breakfast.
Oh well, He is cute, but notorious at times. He is also a proud and manja dog. Simply just like ppl's attention.
New liking: car ride.

An Apple a day,keeps my boredom away

I just cant resist the temptation of it!!It really serves me very well in terms of utilities,entertainment, and even my studies!

Of oxtail soup and fried quail

Food doesn't need to be expensive in order for it to be tasty.Evironment doesn't need to be classy to make your money worthwhile.

In the town of muar lies a secluded kampung named bukit pasir. A 20 minutes journey wil take you there.

Went to have a taste of d food there and it's all ranging from ordinary fried noodles to oxtail soup and quail.Not forgetting about the satay which is also awesome.All for a very reasonable price.

For chinese,money is important.For the Malays they are more easilky contented and more willing to care and share.This is what I like about them.
