- sleepyhead on 2nd day of cny -

currently listening to - hoobastank
mood - ... (>.>)

it's been 3 days (& 4 nights) since mom left home to taiwan for holi. somehow we've been doing well without her. we: well fed; dogs: well fed too; laundry: done punctually everyday; internet: surfed very often; piano: hit occassionally; house: in a mess. thought i personally think it's in a mess even when she's around. not saying anything bad about her, but our house is just stuffed with too much.. stuff. =p

so we decided to polish up things here & there to make our place less "unslightly".

cutleries. a lot of them have been with us since the last century. imagine how stained they r even if we washed them clean everytime we used them. then dad (who always comes up with strange ideas) suggested we should use toothpaste to clean their stain, since it works in getting rid of tooth stains.. & it really worked. my hello kitty plastic bowl (which very obviously my parents had bought it when i was still at the age of sucking milk bottles..) which looked brownish, turned back into white & the hello kitty face has once again revealed itself. hmm.. is it cuz i'm easily amazed by simple things when actually everyone else does that at home or.. >.>.. by the way the toothpaste brand was zact.

manga. yes, they're one of the contributors to y our house is so messy. to make them look neater.. (mind u we dont have enough shelves for mangas) i thought i should pack them into small hand-made boxes (without cover) & stack them on my 2-feet-tall shelf. for once, my mom's manuscript books' back covers (card boards made of recycled papers) came into great use. after packing 2.5 sets of manga (around 70 books) i was out of sticky tapes to make boxes.. by then my task was only 30% complete (not counting manga belonging to my sis).

looks like our aim to make our house look nicer is harder to reach then we thought.

oh, to all those who celebrate chinese new year, gong xi fa cai!! may all of u hav a prosperous & great year! well, i myself dont really fancy the celebrations & stuff even though we do ask for red packs =p.. i prefer sleeping peacefully at home with the comfort of air-con.

argh.. y r the neighbours so noisy...

- lunch @ hotel nikko during 1st job -

well it costs around 20 bucks.. no doubt it tastes nice though XD

- mmorpg or not mmorpg? -

currently listening to - my sis singing misora hibari's songs
mood - bored

ways to get defames/demerits when u play online games:-
- u purposely did a so-called “kill-stealing” (killing monsters which already fell victim to some other players earlier on)
- u’re not so skilled in aiming & accidentally, unintentionally kill-stealed
- certain paranoid players thought u’re about to kill-steal when u’re innocent
- u left ur character standing around doing nothing while u went afk (away from keyboard)
- u stood too long at a certain place without moving (eg. 5 mins)
- u ignored someone who was talking to u
- u accidentally cancelled an unexpected trade/party request
- u purposely cancelled an unexpected trade/party request
- u ignored an unexpected trade/party request
- u didn’t have the items asked for trading
- ur character hasn’t obtained enough level to b able to fame/defame others
- ur level was comparably lower than the others (ie u look weaker)
- u looked/sounded like a scammer even though u’re not
- u’re from a different country/ethnic
- u asked some real noobs who called others noobs y he/she did so
- u’re trying to stop some real noobs from bullying others
- u’re considered a noob
- u’re considered a scammer
- u’re helplessly surrounded by a pro-defaming gang
- u somehow aggravated the pro-defaming gang

suggestions when u get defamed:-
- if u’re a vengeful person – find lots & lots of people to take revenge together with u
- if u’re a carefree person – just ignore. it won’t hurt in real life if u get defamed. relax.
- otherwise, the best method – DON’T PLAY ONLINE GAMES

ro : rox
by the way im NOT from the pro-defaming gang thanks
& please dont consider the points above too seriously cuz i just wrote out of boredom

- bits of memories of 1st job -

currently listening to - the fan
mood - a little bored

the very 1st task was to welcome the japs at the airport. we (my parents & i. my sis went for a 5-day pandu puteri camp) stood rooted in front of the arrival hall for ages, waiting for the 7 of them to appear. for ages. yeap. initially the plane was supposed to arrive at KLIA around 8pm, but due to some malfunction problem it’s been re-scheduled to reach at 10pm. surprisingly or not, we waited till midnight. japs after japs passed by, & our dear camera crew was no where to be found. well they DID appear eventually. by the time we sent them off to their hotel at 2am, we almost went crippled.

for a 1st-timer (in doing part-time jobs) like me, it’s really a new & tiring experience. of course, there’re ups & downs during the 9 days. the next day (the official 1st day of work) one of their cameras kind of broke down, so my seemingly-too-helpful parents went all over the state in search of someone who could fix it. failed. instead they found a guy who rents cameras who made an offer of 3k per day (after bargaining). the jap cameraman accepted the offer, but didn’t get his replacement camera immediately. when mr. renter was about to do the transaction, someone announced that the broken camera was fixed! woohoo guess which innocent little part-timer who didn’t know a single thing about them renting cameras got scolded by the rental guy (who stumped away for another business nearby b4 everything was officially settled) without a reason?

the kuala lumpur conference hall was packed with men & women in black. as an ordinary part-timer who’s not exactly related to the conferences, i couldn’t do anything except for walking around the so-called “waiting room” (which actually looked more like a normal corridor with free flows of coffee & tea..). looking out of the glass windows u could c suria klcc & it’s huge garden quite clearly. then i decided to take some snapshots of stuff found in my vicinity. later in the afternoon, we went to another hotel for the recording of even more conferences. after what seemed like hours lurking up & down the hotel, i got bored again. so i thought since i was so free, i should get to know my digicam better by clicking around. that’s when i deleted all my pics.

eating with jap businessmen (they’re called "salaryman" in jap). yeap. that’s another rather interesting occasion. they’re just full of rules & customs, & they follow them blindly (most of the time). so far I found none of them who doesn’t drink beer. it’s their custom, apparently, that everyone should drink during meals, including women (they spend over hundreds of ringgit everyday for beer). i got away by claiming that i’m allergic towards alcohols (it’s true la), but i still smelled worse than smoked salmon every night (or should i say, every morning?) after returning home. cuz most of them r chain-smokers. one thing good about having meals with them was that i got to try a variety of cuisines which i don’t normally get to eat if i was with my family. from cheap mamak stall foods to unbelievably expensive korean dishes. we tried all of them.

and yes. some of u were wondering if i followed jun-jun around day & night… well… yeah i did saw him... i did manage to stand close enough to take his pics (they’re somehow a little blurred, cuz he walked as fast as typhoon & was forever surrounded by sp’s)… but NO i didn’t stick with him 24/7 like a stalker! =p
