Shopping Spree!

Ok, now I fully understand how female feel when it comes to shopping…
I bought another 5 books during 1 Borneo Popular Book Fair…

I admit that I cannot resist the temptation whenever there is 90% sales. (usually book fair) Well, I managed to find several favourite genres of mine and not patronized just for the sake of my own impulses…I assume…
The original price of the books was RM169.40 and after 70% discount…Tata, you can get it, RM50.82! I saved up RM118.58! (even though I actually spent 50 bucks…)
Anyway, let’s welcome another five compilation for joining my book collection.
  • Commentaries on Living: Series II – Infinity by  Jiddu Krishnamurti
  • Commentaries on Living: Series III Part I – Inference starts from Conclusion? by Jiddu Krishnamurti
  • Commentaries on Living: Series III Part II – The Quality of Pure by Jiddu Krishnamurti
  • The First and The Last Freedom by Jiddu Krishnamurti
  • Thought. Language. Society. World. by Lim Cong Yi
I kept the receipt just in case someone needs it for personal income tax deduction (maximum RM1000).
Anyone interested to claim it? (^_^)

Nicest job up to the moment

If you happen to read my last post about the terrible job, you may have some ideas about the toughness of being a sound system technician. Unreasonable treatment? Not this time.

(^-^) b


Any idea?

How about these?







Yesterday, I was placed on Pulau Dinawan for a typical cultural and entertainment night designed for the China tourists.

Since the event was on the island, instead of sleeping on the beach, me and Azlan (colleague) were allowed to overnight in this cottage.


Not bad huh? I did manage to watch 3 DVDs (Diary of the Dead, They Wait & Mirror)last night after the event. Nice bed, calm atmosphere, tasteful meals... That was my best job since months and I had my sounded sleep last night. I was wondering whether I was working or on my study retreat.

Besides, I learned another function of plankton.


Shame for the management for allowing the tourist to use mobile airgun. They were polluting the sea. (Well, exploiting the island for recreation purpose is to be blamed at the first place...) Sometimes, I feel guilty for being watching what those people polluting environments...

Is Loading Bay part of Hotel?

Well, I am an idiot when it comes to hospitality industry. How do you rank a hotel? If it is ranked according to its overall management, does it include the hotel during its upgrading process?
Yesterday, I was working (as part time sound system technician) at Promenade Hotel, Kota Kinabalu. Due to its facility upgrading (ballroom I assume), many accesses were blocked and I must say that this includes…loading bay…
Guess what? Bad news for technicians like us, of course. Why? I think you know that because we have to move this five boxes of equipments

through this

and the thing that calmed me down, is my lucky number…

Our anger and frustration arose out of the ridiculous management of the hotel THAT the management levels did not prepare the secondary loading access for the supplier! We have gone through lots of suffering situation before where we had being moving more boxes through tougher ground surfaces but they were not due to stupid arrangement!

Promenade Hotel is not a high class hotel after all.

Oil based paint or water based acrylics?

If you crafting plastic model kit (like Gundam or the fans coin it as Gunpla), at some point of our crafting experience, we would go to th...
