24: There is no reason for guys to watch Ice Skating or Men's Gymnastics. Ever.

We've all heard about people having guts or balls. But do you really know the difference between them? In an effort to keep you informed, the definition of each is listed below.

"GUTS" is arriving home late after a night out with the guys, being assaulted by your wife with a broom, and having the guts to say, "Are you still cleaning or are you flying somewhere?"

"BALLS" is coming home late after a night out with the guys smelling of perfume and beer, lipstick on your collar, slapping your wife on the ass and having the balls to say, "You're next!"

We hope this clears up any confusion.

Top 5 favourite movies Tag

List of 5 favourite movies

I guess my list of movies does not really differ from David's but I'll think harder..Hmm favourite movies are those that you can watch over and over and over and over again without yawning right? There are many categories..such as scariest movie that I'll never ever forget movie that made me cry buckets everytime I watch it

1) Papa Can you hear me sing (1983)
I'm not sure whether you guys watched this mandarin movie before or not, but you have to! I watched it about 4 times in my life, and last watched it 2 yrs ago..I still cried buckets watching it. About a girl with a mute dad...He picks up the abandoned baby and raised it as his own's. He goes around collecting wine bottles, hence the super popular song Jau gon tong maai mo (Wine Empty If Sell Nothing). I'm not so sure, it has been a long time.

2) Back to the future (all)
I don't know, all of us grew up watching it, so..haha. but it's a magical story with cute actors (then)

3) All of Stephen Chow's movies
100% confirm that I would rather watch reruns of Stephen Chow's movies than any of the silly lame comedies in the cinemas lately. His humour is not lame (i.e. cold) and has that silliness that somehow that I just find funny. I think I watched Shaolin Soccer more than 10 times d, lol, and his past movies are just so good!

4) The Ring
The japanese version is very good. The original wan la..but I guess the scariest part is when the girl was in the well and then some skeletal hand grabbed her wrist. Actually I watched that with a bunch of girls in the family and then the electricity suddenly just went off and it was midnight =( All of us nearly screamed our heads off~ -_-"

5) Dirty Dancing (1987)
Starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. Classic!!! You're not being passé if you watch an old movie you know..The dancing is just so may not be like You Got Served or Honey with super canggih moves, but the chemistry is just there

None, haha but I'd love it if you guys share your favourite movies with me as well. Nowadays, movies are just,..movies. You go to the cinemas just as a past time, the moment you walk out of it, sure, there is a topic of discussion for a few days, and then a new movie comes along.. =( I think I'm becoming an antique..coz lately checking out many old movies haha. So anyways..if your list of movies are really good, then I'm going to look for the DVD or d/l la haha.

1. Grab the closest book to you.

The World's Funniest Joke

A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator, in a calm soothing voice, says: "Just take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says: "OK, now what?"

the nite I saw someone hentam someone

Last night was having dinner with a few friends at a coffee shop in Tmn U. While waiting for my dinner to be served, there was this sudden commotion. Being the kaypo Penang ppl we are, so peered over to our side. This customer was shouting at this boy (who's the waiter of one of the stalls), maki hamun that the boy threw the change on the table instead of politely placing it. Then the boy gave him some retort (which was rude I assume). Then the man shouted again, daring him to repeat his sentence. The boy did. The man terus gave him a penampar and his tirade of profanity. The boy wanted to hit back I think, but since he's a mere 13-14 (15 at most), and the man (Ah Beng-ish in his 20s) is so garang, he refrained himself and just said something. That man's temper terus flared, and boxed him few times. Chisin hor? The boy was about to fight back when a friend pulled him back and ask him to leave. The man challenged him to bring back his friends or something..

later we saw the boy talking with his group of youngster friends also, probably just to complain. but the man misunderstood that he would be attacked, terus call his leng. A few minutes later a man came, took the plastic chair and hentam the stall (selling zhu chao). Even the chair broke. Even the stall's owner pun lesap, leaving the gas stove still on. Nth interesting happened after that but we were quite scared la.. Ppl throw the change also beat up the guy and thrash the stall d, apatah us kaypo onlookers.. Tsk tsk.

Tsk tsk again. That's why I say hor, JB no good le. So kelian the boy tak tentu pesal kena wallop =( Full of people like this. There ARE nice people, but few lah. Glad that those I personally know so far are nice ppl. Must clarify a bit. Ahbo later kena defamation legal case lagi boh tat. No money to pay arr...Moral of the story hor:

Customer --> Drink more leng teh to cool the temper
Staff--> Never ever throw your change to your customer in a kopitiam (I wonder if that man was expecting service like in a 5-star restaurant.
Here is your change, sir. Thank you so much for your patronage ?????
Kopitiam wor..aimeh??

on a brighter note, today I learnt a new technique. Lol. I didn't know I was this talented or it was plain natural beauty. Lol. Bwhahaa rofl. Perasan siot. Ho ho ho. See la if you can see any difference. Hint, eyes.( That's actually the answer la) ignore the fats and the poor complexion and greasy hair. I was about to take a bath that time. Heee-heeee.

The nite I couldn't sleep

Last night after a heavy dinner, I happily watched anime, some House series and then went to bed at 1am, since class is at 10am this morning. Kut kut lah damn proud for beryoga for 1 whole hour yesterday. And was so busy the whole day it should be a good, relaxing sleep. weather sumore cold cold...Thus I snuggled into my blanket and slept...

Woke up at 2am...Tossed and turned =( Ciz. then think happy thoughts, fattening thoughts, evil thoughts and FYP thoughts. 3am. Prognosis: I must be hungry. Cos I overexerted myself by yoga (excuse to eat nia) for an entire hour earlier that evening ma. hmm. logic. My heavy dinner must've already been entirely digested. Thus, in order to save my tummy, I had 3 pcs of HupSeng kiam pneah (latest addiction).Lies back on bed.

4am. Cis. Still awake wan...must be still hungry kua.Takes a piece of bread. Puts a slice of cheese on it. Melts it with the microwave oven. Yum-yum. Still not full. Takes another piece of bread. This time smother it with Milo. I heard it's good. and I've got sudden cravings for Milo anyway. Yuuuummmm. Confirm tat my hard work of yoga that evening has gone to waste =( Drinks a glass of milk. Jumps back to bed.

5am. Why?????? I'm so tired d..but can't sleep..Realised culprit: My clothes' fabric is not cotton. Very uncomfy and hot. Ciz. Could've saved myself of 3 Hupseng and 2 pcs gardenia had I realised earlier. Changed clothes. Bahagia...Then I dozed off...

The communists are making us plant and reap the crops the whole day, from early morning to night. The food ration is so little, the 3 meals rationed barely make up to our regular 1 meal. I heard they sent off the neighbour's dad off to some camp or village last week but never came back. But it's just a pretense. Apparently the communists has already silenced him forever as they believe him to be a government supporter. Am so worried for dad and mom. The communists just came to pick up them just now. Younger bro is crying. But am not sure why we still get to live in our flats. Can tanam so many crops in flat wan meh? Ahbo I try to call Dad with my Nokia 6270, "hello? Where are you?Are you and mom ok?"
"Yeah we're fine..we are in the village now"
" come the communists let you keep your Nokia 3310?"
"Yalor, they let us keep hor, so kind"
"I see..alright. Glad that everything's ok.Ttyl"
I was sending Dad a text message when...

The ringtone of Floorfilla Anthem rang. Jeez. Vun called d..Looks at alarm clock. 9.55am. Class at 10am. Brush teeth and hurry off to class. Late 20mins siot. Lol. Actually hor, after telling this long winded story, my point is I wanted to reflect on my dream cos I kept thinking about it the whole day. Hehe. Such a funny dream right?But it isn't.

I read this book 2 weeks ago, FIRST THEY KILLED MY FATHER by Loung Ung. Written by a Cambodian survivor of the Khmer Rouge's tyranny, this story told of how she and her family survived the era. From 1975-1979, through torture, execution, starvation, disease and forced labour, the Khmer Rouge killed 1/4 of Cambodia's population, which was about 2 million people. Imagine, 2 million ppl dead for no reason. Just because Khmer Rouge felt they were right in their own twisted patriotic mind. Obviously my dream was that I was in that Khmer Rouge era. The writer had to eat charcoals, worms, roaches and anything they could find on the floor to fill up their stomach. Using their jewelry to trade for food, the chicken they traded for were totally walloped. Even the bones were eaten with relish. From a well-to-do family, and chubby, she went from healthy and robust to being malnourished. From well groomed and trimmed hair, to being filled with hair lice, sticky and knotted. They make do with mud water as bathing water. When they are lucky, they get to use the river. No toothbrush, toothpaste or any sorts. All kinds of diseases plagued the society then, and all the suspects (mainly government servants) were killed. Her dad, mom and sister was killed by the communists, and another sister died from disease. Obviously there were also rapings and all sorts.. dan sebagainya. It was really sad reading the book, and all of it is true. All because of the craze for power, innocent people had to suffer. The Khmer Rouge (called Angkar) destroyed many of the temples that was preserved (Angkor Wat and all the other Wats) and basically killed their prospering country. 30 yrs later, when I visited Cambodia in June 2006, I can see that their country is still slowly picking up..The poverty was quite bad and you see shoeless children begging for food whereever you go. And some that stepped on the landmines and survived? Either tak bertangan or berkaki. I almost forgotten the scenario d till I dreamt of it last nite.

Gosh, we always complain so much about dissatisfactions in life. Do we realise how lucky we actually are? Even our communists last time in Malaya weren't so bad (I believe la, since my grandma always tell of the stories of the Japanese occupation and communists). I mean, at least gramps and grandma had potatoes to eat everyday. I mean, roaches, crickets, and yucks. Many other types of insects were described in the book. We are just so so so lucky to be borned in this era and in Malaysia. And I can guarantee you that there are definitely no handphones nor nice communists like in my dream during the wartimes (sure la, tarak handphone pun last time, but it was just an analogy for small luxuries). I'm not making sense am I?

What can I say. Sometimes we just forget to appreciate things. Or simple things in life. Go read the book. I guarantee it will at least twitch a vein in your heart.

p/s: sorry the beginning of the post was a bit mouliu and non-relevant. but wanted to build the momentum to write ma, which is prelude to my dream, which is the prelude to the Khmer Rouge tyranny which is prelude to emphasis on how lucky we are now. Jeez, no wonder I nv score well for essays. No head no tail~

It's freaking cold in Johore after being freaking hot for a few days!!

Lol. Texted Joe just now...

H.C.Tan: Missy, I'm now one step closer to marrying Cannavaro hehe...

Joe: OMG are u going to italy?

H.C.Tan: No lar..just taking italian this semester hehe =)

Dear if I really am going to Italy of course I wouldn't forget you. You'll be like, the first person I will gloat to. Afterall, we have been supporting Italy since form 2 which is like, a decade ago. hahaha. anyways, yes, due to my horrible timetable this semester, I had to drop my Japanese II. I switched to Italian instead..after susah payah appeal etc (cos registration closed d last week), I have the green light to take Italian. hehehe. So Next time dont have to worry that I dont have international appeal.

let's see, I use Hokkien, Malay,
English on a daily basis.
(Thanks to Chun Tin Au Bo Sim my hokkien has improved tremendously...neh, that taiwanese hokkien drama that all our grandmothers and mothers and aunt and grandaunt are busy following wan lately).

I speak
Teochew and Cantonese when I have to, although I'm not 100% fluent lar,but cukup makan). Oh, I speak a little Tamil and Thai which are super simple phrases and syok sendiri nia wan. and I've taken courses for Mandarin, Spanish, French, Japanese and this sem, Italian! *wink wink which are all 'phuar tang sai' (half barrel of shit,literally translated).

Dad asks, "Are you studying aeronautical engineering or languages?"

Lol. somehow languages are more interesting. I really do want to take my Japanese though, cos I can barely speak it and still cannot fully understand the anime that I watch. =( bohpien..

so can I conclude that next time I can marry a Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese,
French, Indian, Malay or Thai? (preference in sequence) hehehehe. gleefully imagining my future groom.I'm not actually very picky, I'd gladly settle for Signore Fabio darling..or Signore Alessandro.'s not like I have anything to do you's been raining here non-stop for two days. apparently some parts in Johore are flooded again d..and my eyes are seeing stars after watching 120 episodes of One Piece in a week..Have been gathering my courage since the past 3hours to bathe..but..brrrrrrrr...

Enjoy your weekend and as an Italian will say...Ciao! hehehe

the year that was...2006

'twas the year that I...Had crazy impulsive hairstyles

obviously the one on top left was a super mistake, cos I wanted to recreate the zaman kegemilangan look in 2005 when i worked in glo...
zaman kegemilangan

Hah, obviously failed dengan fact, the whole mop of hair looked like charred noodles in rainbow colors--red, orange, brown =( =( thanks to the auntie who did my hair. terus banned her after tat incident.kena 'suan' by lecturer sumore and dubbed, 'perempuan yang rambut berwarna-warni'. cis. Hence, 1 week after industrial training, I chopped all it off.

'twas the year that I...went for industrial training
I was very lucky to be accepted to undergo my internship with Honeywell Aerospace Services, where our main workload is to assist with the overhaul and maintenance of APU (Auxiliary Power Unit). basically it very fun working for the 10 weeks, in fact i extended my internship for another 10 weeks!! =) learnt a lot from the GM, Mr. Tong and the other employees

Partners in crime-- Hah, Lun and Jenifur (fellow coursemates)

'twas the year that I...cavorted in clubs & met loads of new friends
the best part about KL is obviously the nightlife heeheeeheeeeee. penang
clubs are just so potong..but very homely feeling la,wont feel scared or alienated cos friends/acquaintances are everywhere). In KL, I got to know some really good friends whom I still meet from time to time whenever I'm in KL or when they are in JB

'twas the year that I...lost a dear friend- Yu Ki who passed away on April 2006

'twas the year that I...joined gym for 3 months, lost lots of weight and became a yoga enthusiast
'nuff said. I looked super fit during my stint at Fitness First, losing weight no matter how much I ate. was at the gym almost everyday and god, it felt so good! (dum dum, I didn't take a good picture when I was at optimum weight)

'twas the year that I...gained all the weight back after I quitted gym,and more!
OF COURSE it didn't feel good after that because my appetite remains ravenous, unwhetted no
matter how much I eat...and I stopped exercising completely after uni reopens, maka all the pounds came back..*sobs sobs (I refuse to upload any pictures of my fats =P) as of now, I' a good 5kgs heavier than when I was in gym

'twas the year that I...joined Spirit of KL 2006 and won!
This is definitely one of the best experience ever =) I don't think I blogged abou
t it (no time ar that time =P), but to summarize it, the collages below should suffice. Basically there are 4 of us during the prelims and when we got on to the next stage, we recruited 2 more researchers into our team for the finals. The 4 of us are supposed to do the running and completing the tasks whereas the other 2 are given the responsibility to research on topics to aid us. ahhh. but we won!!!! we didn't think we would, but we did! =) 3 of us are coursemates, 1 from UTM, 1 from MMU and 1 from UTAR..

Prelims where 150 teams participated and only 20 selected for finals
Making banner for team La BambaAmongst the tasks are abseiling and making flower garlandsFinal presentation where we presented a sketchbwahaha. 10k!!!!! (divided by 6 la of course)
