Should Guys Always Pay For The Bills?

Majority think that a guy should always pay for the bill (any bills) whenever he is dating a girl. If you fail to do so, you are going to be tagged as stinky, not gentlemen, bla bla bla....

As per one of my reading on a Chinese article, the author has a very good point there. Below is basically what the article said and also what I am having in my mind.... :P

Yes, as a gentlemen you should take the initiative to pay for the bills whenever you going out with a girl, but even if the guy doesn't pay for the bill, the girl shouldn't blame him for not doing so. When he pays all the bills, you should remember how good and how gentlemen he is, but NOT take it for granted.

Aren't we are shouting all around the world "Men And Women Should Be Equal" ??

Then why we are only equal on things when the ladies are lose/less capable in, but not on things that they gain? For example, ladies ask for equal in politics, ask for equal in doing house works, but why not equal in paying bills, equal in getting food from the buffet table?

So, Should Guys Always Pay For The Bills?

P/S: Please take note that this IS NOTa discussion on "Men And Women Should Be Equal" (I personally think that men and women SHOULD ALWAYS BE equal), this is a discussion on "Should Guys Always Pay For The Bills" ?

P/S as per 31st July 07: Ladies out there, please don't misunderstand me yah~~~I am not trying to say bad about women here....I know there are women which are so indepedent and will not let guys to pay for them....don't shoot me la~~~I am just trying to gether the public opinion on this topic....see my reply in comments room.....hehehe...

What Tarot Card Am I ??

OK.....I am DEATH

So what are you? Try this out if you want - Tarot

You are Death

Change, Transformation, Alteration.

People fear this card, but if you want to change your life, this is one of the best indicators for it. Whatever happens, life will be different. Yes, the Death card can signal a death in the right circumstances (a question about a very sick or old relative, for example), but unlike its dramatic presentation in the movies, the Death card is far more likely to signal transformation, passage, change. Scorpio, the sign of this card, has three forms: scorpion, serpent, eagle. The Death card indicates this transition from lower to higher to highest. This is a card of humility, and it may mean you have been brought low, but only so that you can then go higher than ever before. Death "humbles" all, but it also "exults." Always keep in mind that on this card of darkness there is featured a sunrise as well. You could be ready for a change.

After reading this...Fine, I think it is really the time for me to CHANGE!!!!
hmmmm......What to change first??? hmmmm......YAH!!!! MY CURRENT JOB!!!!!

ok...that's all for the weekend...need to go update my resume and mail boom all the employer out there....wahahahahahahaha....

Decided Not To Reveal This Post

**ANNOUCEMENT : I drafted this post yesterday afternoon. Planned to post this up this morning. But after reading some blogs, I found there are already few blogs posted with this video. Hence, I decided NOT TO Reveal This Post !!!

p/s : am I revealing actually?? (HAHAHAHA)

Hope You Able To Get The Answer As Fast As Me

Someone asked me this...

"Albert, try guess this. My friend asked me few days ago and I still can't get the answer until now....See if you can get the answer or not.....I couldn't sleep because of this...."


"A Taxi driver was driving on the road, he didn't violate any rules and laws. He did absolutely nothing wrong!!! But why did the police stop him?"

without even thinking more than 2 seconds.....below is my answer to this someone.

"OK...Tell you what, you go and ask your friend this....A policeman was riding on his motorcycle and rushing back to police station for a very very very super super super extremely urgent meeting. However, his ride broke down during halfway. He was still 30KM away from the station. He has no handphone (due to the low salary), his radio battery is empty. There is no car, no motorcycle, no helicopter, no airplane, no Transformers, no Bumblebee, nothing on the road. Suddenly a red-white vehicle with a huge TEKSI (TAXI in Malay) wording passed by. WHAT SHOULD THE POLICE DO?? "

"............ (speechless)"

God Bless My Mom


"Where are you?"
"Having Dinner."
"At where?"
"PJ lor"
"Can come back take me to see doctor?"
"Why?!? What's Wrong?!?!?"
"I feel dizzy....see things very blur....hand shivering..."
"Huh?!?!?! What happened?!?!? OK..OK....I come home now"

Got a call from mom yesterday when I was having dinner. She told me in the phone that she is not feeling as per the conversation above. Dad is outstation in JB, younger brother is now working in Singapore.....Left only mom and maid at home. I've no choice but ask her to hold on and wait for me while I rushing home with my little Myvi. Mom called again during my way home. I knew things might be quite serious. Too bad...that was the fastest I can go with my Myvi.....I miss my Civic at that moment..... =(

After reaching home, I asked mom how she feel, she said she still feeling bad. She told me she felt dizzy yesterday morning and went to see a doc. Doc said her blood pressure is very high...reached 160....0_0 ......She has minor high blood pressure problem all the while, and was having 5mg of Norvasc (Thanks Bernard for letting me know the correct spelling.) all the time. But don't know why, the pressure suddenly gone up this high....

After hearing all this, I decided to send her to hospital instead of normal clinic. At the hospital, doc said her blood pressure is still high and asked us whether want to be admitted or take medicine home? I decided to let her stay one night in the hospital.

After done with all the procedures, I drove home to pick up my maid to hospital and let her accompany mom overnight.

Called mom this morning. Her blood pressure dropped to 130 this morning....phew~~~Now need to wait for doc and see what he is going to advise. Whether to stay one more night or go home.

God Bless My Mom

8GCC Vroommm Vrooommmmm - Ulu Yam to Gohtong Jaya

15th July 2007 - A group of 8th Generation Civic 'crazies' (around 20 rides) went for a vrooommmmm vrooommmmm to Gohtong jaya by using the Sungai Tua/Ulu Yam route instead of the normal Genting uphill. They wanted to test their heavy mod ride to see whether all the $$$ they put in worth it or not....hehehehe.....

Why this road??? Challenging, Less car, more save-to-take corner and not as slope as Genting uphill.

At 1st, I decided not to join the fun as I do not have a car and I my new Civic Type-R is still in Japan (hahahaha...). However, brother Gary offered to give me a ride on his yellow monster, hence....I AM IN......hehehehehe.......

Gary's car had a small slip in one of the sharpest corner, but he was able get the car back to the track with his 40 years driving skill. I felt the DRIFT man!!!!! Gary, you are a great driver!!!!

If you ask me how was the drive/ride? I can't write much on this as I am not a driver, I can only tell you that I couldn't stand properly after the ride. Not just because of the car I was sitting in but also by seeing how my fellow brothers 'whack' the corners like crazy......

Enjoy some of the pictures..........

Gathered earlier in the morning at Caltex after LDP Kepong Tol

Our special guest - Mr. Gary.....and me.....hehehehe.....

Another Special guest...Mr. Andy

One of my good bro heavy mod FD....You're the man John !!!!

The Cars....

The Gang!!!!!

A HUGE round of applause to our one and only one female racer....Ms. Chloe !!!!

Another Hijack Case Happened To One Of My Club Member

But she is lucky - really lucky??

Yes...I think she is lucky, if not she might be in more serious situation than below and you will know why:-

"It was an "attempted" hijack but since her car was BADLY crashed, the hijackers sped away and left me there right in the middle of LDP after a horrifying "car spinning" episode ."

She was driving alone on LDP that night around 11:30pm on the fast lane @ 85-90 km/h. Just when she reached the bridge in front of 1 Utama heading The Curve, a car revved from the back on the middle lane and pushed her car on the left back-corner. As per what she said, she knew something was not right because it was not a normal car-to-car metal collision. After police inspection, that car was trying to hit her car with the trye and hoping for minimal damage on both car. But that F**ker couldn't control his car and stuck the tyre underneath her car then keep pushing her car towards the middle concrete divider. She steer to left by instinct to avoid the being pushed to the middle divider.

She did escape from the contact but the speed has caused her car to swivel too much towards the left almost horizontally. Again, in an attempt to pull the car back from going down the drain after the 3rd lane, she had to swivel right again then the car went into a 180 degrees spin towards the right, and finally hitting the concert divider on the left front corner and put the car to a stop. She was not able to see what car hit her as the car sped away immediately.

Injury and Damages
Both front air-bags were deployed on impact. The entire left body side of the car had tyre and rim mark, a very slightly broken left back lights, while the front was badly crashed ( can see the entire engine compartment from the gaping hole on the left ). Windscreen cracked.

she suffered very minor injuries: small bruise on the right ankle, a skin-burn from the seat belt on her chest and a hairline break on her upper lip ( possibly from the impact from the airbag ).

At the Police Station
After putting down the statement and the police heard her car was the new civic, he said hers was the 3rd case for the day. There was already a crashed blue 2.0 civic parked at the inspection area. He then showed her another police report made the day earlier where a restaurant owner's new civic (silver) was hijack when he was getting into his car after leaving a cybercafe. The hijackers had parang and they managed to get the car and have hurt the guy on the arm while his girlfriend suffered the cut on the neck. Fortunately while trying to leave the scene, the hijacker crashed the car into a lorry parked along the road. Seeing the car damaged, the hijacker actually got out of the car and ran off.

Don't you think she is lucky??? If that was a successful hijack case, I am afraid those son-of-a-bitch might not only take the car.....might take this pretty lady along as well!!!

Yes, this might be a hit-and-run case by a drunk driver......but still, we really need to be extreme caution on the highway at night.

Longer Hours Don't Mean Higher Output

Something I read today in The Sun - MONDAY 9TH SEPT 2007. Which I think is so good d*mn true and precise.

So folks, please leave this issue of The Sun on your bosses' table who honor the staff who work late just to show he/she can "sacrifice" for the company and leave a copy on your colleague's workstation who like to "sacrifice" for the company.....buekkkkkk.....

Quoted from The Sun - MONDAY 9th SEPT 2007, Pg. 18, by VRK from Kuala Lumpur : -

"I do not believe working long hours can be related to increasing productivity or whether it is a good things as a whole anyway."

"Working long hours may overcome shortage of work time in the short term BUT eventually it will catch up with you."

"How many of us know of those who boast of working until 2am or 3am the next morning only turn up at work the following day after lunch." - WHAT IS THE POINT?!?!?!

"Someone who actually slept in the office under the table due to so-called work urgency and then disappeared for a few days due to exhaustion." - AGAIN, WHAT IS THE F**KING POINT??!!??!

"Productivity is a function of output and time; increasing number of hours worked may just reduce productivity if average output falls."

"Germany which has one of the highest productivity figures also is where people work the shortest hours." - Why are are we working 24/7 but still can't see the tail light or even smell the exhaust gas of German's Technology?

"We wasted a lot of time on pleasing internal bosses and preparing presentations."

"How many of us stay up late amending and redoing presentations for internal consumption when all effort should be focused on external clients where the revenue is."

"No need nice PowerPoint to show the Group CEO or MD what the thinking is, it is sufficient to outline and discuss the matter at hand, so time is not wasted on unproductive or non-revenue generating matters." - I partially agree with this, as some CEO or MD will judge one performance with the attractiveness of the PowerPoint, just like some I know. Which I think this is ridiculous, you should hire a graphic designer instead of a Team Leader or Manager then.

"Many of time, middle or lower management staff just wait around for the head honcho to turn up for a review or meeting." - Even on weekend. Some event waited for hours just because the head stuck somewhere on MARS meeting with another ET.

"A GOLDEN RULE OF MANAGEMENT is DO NOT waste too much time on internal meetings and presentations when the clients and revenue are all external."
