oh...recently i like this song,

breathless, by Shayne Ward. this british guy is from a british singing talent competition called x-factor..haha got Simon from American Idol as one of the judges as well.

this song is very nice, the lyrics is very touching. and the voice...wow...amazing. especially the break part, ngaiti, the singer can sung so insanely high.

haha, i don't think i can manage to sing this song, it's way beyond my league. haha, but still i would have fun trying to learn it and sing it for my own entertainment:P

here's the lyrics taken from www.completealbumlyrics.com

If our love was a fairy tale
I would charge in and rescue you
On a yacht baby we would sail
To an island where we'd say I do

And if we had babies they would look like you
It'd be so beautiful if that came true
You don't even know how very special you are


You leave me breathless
You're everything good in my life
You leave me breathless
I still can't believe that you're mine
You just walked out of one of my dreams
So beautiful you're leaving me

And if our love was a story book
We would meet on the very first page
The last chapter would be about
How I'm thankful for the life we've made

And if we had babies they would have your eyes
I would fall deeper watching you give life
You don't even know how very special you are


You leave me breathless
You're everything good in my life
You leave me breathless
I still can't believe that you're mine
You just walked out of one of my dreams
So beautiful you're leaving me

You must have been sent from heaven to earth to change me
You're like an angel
The thing that I feel is stronger than love believe me
You're something special
I only hope that I'll one day deserve what you've given me
But all I can do is try
Every day of my life


You leave me breathless
You're everything good in my life
You leave me breathless
I still can't believe that you're mine
You just walked out of one of my dreams
So beautiful you're leaving me

You leave me breathless
You're everything good in my life
You leave me breathless
I still can't believe that you're mine
You just walked out of one of my dreams
So beautiful you're leaving me

my first few days in KL

as i arrived in KL airport one of my bag's handle came off again. it was the same bag that i brought for the KL interview. it was mended by my mum, but it came off again>_<

i live at my fren's apartment as a temporary free loader whereby i sleep at the living room. next month they'll move into a new place and i'll move together with them as well. haha of course, this time i would be paying rent. i'm glad that i have my hometown fren as my room mate. i was quite lucky also as my living place has already been settled before i've arrive in KL and it's also quite near to my work place.

among the very first thing i do is to find transport as i need to have my own transport for my work. my friend's gf happens wants to sell her blue iswara. so i go and take and a look, conditions and price is quite reasonable so i agreed on the spot. haha, i was quite suprise that it goes smoothly so fast, and i didn't need to do alot of things as the seller would make the arrangment. i just only need to prepare payment.

next day, i took public transport to Low Yat to find myself a laptop computer. To get to low yat, i take a taxi to Kelana Jaya LRT, frm Kelana Jaya LRT to KL Sentral, frm KL Sentral walk opposite road side take monorail to Jln Imbi, then frm Jln Imbi walk to Low Yat. haha i felt quite proud of myself as i arrive beacause i've did it by myself travelling there, of course with friend's instruction and advice beforehand.

i went around and ask for advice from my friend on phone before i settle down to a lenovo G410 laptop for a very reasonable price. as i happily bought my laptop back and taken all those train and taxi back to my house, you have no idea how much i was shocked to see blue screen pop up while using it at the very first day, and it's several times some more! ngaiti, new laptop buy already blue screen, i went back the next day and give the laptop for them to check.

Lenovo G410, picture taken from here.

they say it was because i simply installed programs not compatibile with the laptop. i was thinking "WTF la, u think i'm a PC idiot ka, where got such thing one?". according to my friend the blue screen message say " beginning dumping physical memory" which concerns RAM. meaning that the 1GB RAM that i requested them to upgrade is not compatibile. but nevertheless i went home, bought a extra mini screw driver and open the laptop, take out the RAM, and test it whether it would crash and it didn't.

which proves that it indeed is the RAM's problem. so next day i took the tedios trip back to Low Yat and luckily managed to find a reasonable good guy in which he exchange the RAM for me. damn...i've make three tedios trip to Low Yat in three days just to manage a laptop. for me i think it took me more effort than buying my car!

one thing i gotta get use to in KL is the hot weather. i think it's the result of too many carbon dioxide and carbon monokside from too many people and cars in KL. haha no wonder they prefer to drink tea than coffee to cool off:P

haha, anyway i've gotta polish up on my cantonese as well. sometimes when i speak cantonese i would accidentally spill out some hokkien and would have the gave the listeners a puzzled look, in which i would quickly speak mandarin. thank goodness most people here can speak mandarin.

basically i'm ok and i believe i would get use to my new life. haha, if kenot get use, also need to get use. the last thing i would want to do is to come back Kuching announcing my defeat:P

oh well, tat's all from me for now. this is kwang houg reporting from KL:)

farewell kuching....

image taken from here.

farewell my friends in kuching, i would be leaving my beloved hometown to start a new life and to work at KL. life would never be the same again for me for most part. living in KL would be hard, hectic and not as comfortable as in Kuching.

there's alot of mixed feelings. i feel excited to start a new life, to face new challenges and yet at the same time i feel a little bit heavy hearted to leave my hometown that i've lived for 24 years.

my last day of work at my ex-company is still very busy. when i left, they sure would be more busy. haha, i feel sorry that i need to allocate my taskload to them, but what to do. i would miss my colleages, i'm quite lucky actually to get a bunch of good colleages, especially that is my first job some more. i'm the youngest in the company and therefore somehow they would look after me like a little brother haha. thanks for everything, if there's anything that i did wrong please forgive me:P and i wish you guys all the best in your future undertakings.

i took this photo of my workplace on my last day. haha, i know it's very messy. it shows how busy i am:P

i even need another table behind me to put and arrange my stuff.

haha, i've learn alot from my first job, although it is not directly related to what i study. it gives me alot of chance and exposure, espcecially the skills of dealing with colleages, boss and customer. haha, thanks for all the scolding,advices from my boss and customer as well. it really made me grow up. when i bid farewell to my big boss on my last day, suddenly i feel very heavy hearted as i drove back home. haha, almost want to drop tears. ngaiti...didn't know that it would affect me so much.

for my friends in kch...haha, thanks for the companionship and fun through the many years. thanks for being there whether i'm sad or happy. i would surely remember all the happy crazy memories. thanks for the all the farewells gathering and gifts. haha, all of you, take good care.

for my family...sign...gonna miss them the most. and my house, my bed.

and for all the foods in kch..laksa kolo mee sio bee....i'm gona miss you guys haha.

image taken from wii's website.

before i went to kl i attend a birthday party at my friend's house. haha, i almost forgot it was my fren's b'day as because next day after that day is labour day. (her b'day is actually on labour's day, and her dad's b'day is on 1st day of lunar CNY!)

anyway i was suprise to see a Nintendo's Wii in her house. Wii is very popular in other countries and it's still not common yet in Malaysia. of course, as a gamer i quickly and happily took my chance to try out Wii for the first time.

haha, all of us instantly turn into kids again as we played. Wii is quite different from other console games like play station and Xbox or other pc games as it utilize a different 3D engine system and requires physical movement of the "wii stick" which would be shown on screen. for example, if you're playing a tennis game, you'll swing the wii stick like tennis racket. if you're playing a shooting game, you'll point the wii stick to the screen like a gun.

the most enjoying game i played is the boxing game whereby you swing both Wii stick controller in a punching method. haha, it was quite fun and i was overexcited about it that i didn't realize i was sweating like hell after i played. my friend also look at me and ask me why i'm so serious, it's only a game! haha, i beat up 3 guys in a row>_<

Wii is fun and is suitable for all ages. the games may look simple and easy to play but as you proceed to the higher level it's actually quite challenging and requires some skill especially on your concerntration and precision.

but then my friend say, Wii is only fun when you have a bunch of frens or people to play with. if you play alone at home, you'll easily get bored:P

to read more about wii, you can go to wikipedia or it's Wii's website.

houg with glassess

after living for 24 years...finally my eyes can't take it anymore. actually i've got some short sighted problems a few years back but it's still not serious. back then my right eye degree is 50, my left is 170. reason why i didn't wear the glassess eventhough i've got one is because i feel that i don't look good in it. looks alot like a bookworm nerd. and also, i'm still able to see things clearly.

but then as years pass, especially this year, the toll starts to take on my eyes. one big concern that i've begin to realize is that i couldn't see the subtitles of the movie in cinema clearly anymore. not to mention movie, even the subtitle at my home tv is already blur for me. what to say more, while sitting at cafe or coffee shop, my fren ask me to look at beautiful girls a few tables away, i would sadly told them...i kenot see clearly la! T_T

so since i would be going to kl i decided that i should re-examine my shortsighted degree and get a better looking glassess haha. and the result... now my right eye is 125, my left eye is 175. i wonder why my eyes would be shortsighted unevenly. i use both eyes to see le.

haha, it was quite fun for others to say...eee...when u start wearing glassess? when they first saw me wearing. so far, the response has been good about how i look with glassess. gud gud, cos i think wearing contact lense would be very troublesome. besides, i think wearing glassess would look more professional and smart and would make my childlike face abit more mature:)

but of course, it's more preferable if you maintain and keep the original. my ex boss use to kek me, aiyo since when u start to wear? you see, i'm 50 oledi but my eyes still original.

i've started to feel the inconvinience of wearing glassess. like for example it's hard for you to look at something high. u'll always need to adjust your glassess or need to bend your head high. i found out this sort of put some stress on the neck when i'm sitting down and i'm talking with someone very tall. (haha one of ex-colleage) it's different without glassess cos you'll just need to adjust your eyes up and there's no blind spot that the glassess have.

and one thing is that you'll surely left some scars on the upper part of the nose as a result of constant wearing. oh yeah...it's quite trouble as when you sweat, you'll need to take off glassess to wipe the sweat, you'll need to take off when you eat hot stuff as the steam would build up in your glassess and etc etc...

haha, but everything has it goods and bads. so no choice on that.

i'm the last among my family member to wear glassess. haha so next chinese new year my family photo would have all members wearing glassess:P

haha, tat's all for now:)

conclusion of the interview kl trip

they say a picture describe a thousand word. this picture is what i can conclude from this kl interview trip.

the conlucsion. well, i'm glad to say that this trip is quite successfull. as all the 4 companies offered me the job. haha, i also didn't expect it to be this good. very glad and happy indeed:)

i suppose the idea of me insisting to paid for the RM500 plus air ticket myself makes me really fuel up to really make sure the interview would be worth it and therefore give the best i could. cos my dad offered to sponsor the air tickets for me. haha, luckily i insist on me using my own money.

but looking back, not all my previous interview that i went thru in kuching is successfull. haha, i think it's all a process for me. if not for the previous failures, i may not able to gain the success i have today. most importantly is not to give up and learn from your mistake and strive to improve.

a very big thank you to my frens who bring me around and allowed me to sleep at their places also haha. if not for their help and effort, this trip may not be that smooth.

haha another big unexpected gain is to be able to meet up and with this leng lui for the 1st time^_^

so among the 4, i've chosen to take the offer by Orisoft as application consultant and would start work in KL on 16th May 2008. haha, i've already drop my resign bomb. looking forward to start a new chapter of my life in KL

gambate kudasai p(^_^)q

rush rush KL adventure trip finale~

monday morning i have two interviews in which each is at both corner of town again. due to the fact that i don't think i've put up my best performance and now today it's the two last chances, i've better do my best.

the 1st interview in the morning i've arrived on time but waited for about half an hour before getting interviewed. feel a bit tulan but what to do... i still gave my best but they say they'll only be able to confirm with me within two weeks time. but the interview process itself is o.k.

the 2nd interview is at a big tower in damansara. wow..i've always fancy to work in a big tower. besides the great view from afar, you can also look out at the window into the distance and say like in the movies, "one day, everything i see here will be mine!" >_< haha...just for fun.

the 2nd interview is quite ok also eventhough i've been interviewed by three person at the same time. they would get back to me 2molo for my confirmation. at least this job i've more interest and i feel that i've better chance as the H.O.D hinted something like to offer me on the spot:)

haha, after the interview as i went to the ground floor i realize there's a mcd! oh no...if i work here. sure get fat and unhealthy haha. but still, i go there and give myself a good treat as a completion to my 4 interviews:)

when i catched a cab home, i also saw that the taxi driver is taking mcd takeaway. but then i see something a bit different about this taxi driver. so i ask him, "hey uncle, can i ask you something? y most of the taxi driver they don't mainly speak english but y you do?"

then we began a long conversation as he told me of his stories. he was once a businessman but got cheated by his partner that ran away with all the money, leaving him bankrupt. as he need to find new jobs, he found himself cannot catch up with the trend as he don't know anything about computers. then he also find it hard to learn again as he's quite old already. and now he become a taxi driver instead

i did try to advice him that it's ok if you don't know how to use a computer, ask someone else to do it for you! as long as you've experience in your field. you shouldn't be afraid of losing your competiveness. just like my sales manager who's a super salesman in heavy machinery and equipment, he's also not good at using computer but he ask our help to do the computing and reporting stuff for him.

sign...but it seems that he's too afraid to overcome new challenges. really a pity. worse of all, he also mention that he recently got robbed by two bangladesh in his taxi. he even showed me the bandage in his hand as he risisted and fight back.

sometimes, you can really think alot just by talking to even a taxi driver. i suppose everyone has their own stories. especially in a big city like KL. i'm feel very pity for him, and i bid him all the best in his future undertaking. i feel pity not because of he being rob, but that he lost his fighting spirit to learn new thing to keep up to trend.

from this conversation it made me feel that one should always learn to improve so that we would not loss our competitiveness and lose to the trend, else we would be replaced and become useless. haha,yeah the society real world is a harsh living place.

i've also have some conversation with my fren whereby he told me a story of his lecturer who find it too old for him to learn new programming languages and still uses the old programming language. it's a pity for him cos he've reach that kind of stage, whereby learning new things is very much harder compare to younger days.

i've also beginning to feel society's competitiveness as i reach KL. my fren advice me to get a master, if possible. i've also feel that i should, or get a professional certificate to sharp up my edge while i'm still young and able to learn more (although i'm not really good at study.) if i'm in kuching i surely wouldn't feel the need as life is slow and comfortable here.

haha, for a better future i should work hard. see how it goes. i've felt that i've learn alot from this KL trip and that the 500 plus of flight ticket is quite worth it.
