Being single #17

At home waiting to pick up sister at 5pm. Checking up on my cigarette boxes collection, my aim was to fill one side of the wall with cigarette boxes. I have a habit of keeping my own cigarette packet, I been doing this for afew years now, you can tell it really adds up. Its one of those habits that can kill you.

Funny how it started out, when I dated S., she gave me the reason to quit. But in the end I couldnt keep her. So I turn to L. for comfort and used her as a rebounce, L., I'm sorry that I hurt you..

So these days I better off alone.

Driving out to Cabramatta looking for a latenight restaurant to have dinner.

Present for little Jonathan

Bought a Hi-Low chair for little Jonathan at Sydney's Baby Kingdom, his babyshower party is this weekend.

Raise the chair up for Tanya to feed him and let him make a messy. Slide it down so Jonathan can run around and let him make a mess. It can even tilt backward to lay back, enjoy lunch and let him make a mess.

3 notorious girls and a bottle of Vodka

Van, Nhi and Duyen, the 3 notorious girls from Melbourne come to attend little Jonathan's babyshower party.

Saturday. Everyone met up at Wilson's place to see Jonathan sleep. Bought some take-away food at Lao-Thai Luammit restaurant and bring it back to the Motel where they are staying for dinner and drinking Vodka. After dinner we head out to GAS nightclub, and dance the night away till 3am in the morning. GAS were quite lastnight, probably because most people are attending the rave at Fox Studios.

Sunday. The whole group spent the night at Motel, all cuddle up in a shared blanket, but none of us could sleep cause one of our roommate have a habit of snoring. 10am, time heading out to Cabramatta for yumcha breakfast, then to Mounties Club for coffee. By 1pm Sunday everyone gathered at Wilson's place ready to eat and make trouble.

Our next group gathering is in August, lets rock Brisbane again!

Robert's birthday

Its been raining the whole day. Robert's birthday was 3 days ago, so we're going out for Charcoal Mine BBQ House all-you-can-eat Korean style BBQ dinner on Church Street Parramatta, I like the idea of an all-you-can-eat BBQ, its so unique, I bet the restaurant owner make heaps of money out of that, oh, and the food was good too. I'm coming back there again.

After dinner we went bowling at Fairfied for some indoor entertainment.

To a guy, his birthday is just another day, we dont make a big deal out of it. That explains why we're not good at remembering others' people birthday..

Enlightenment lesson

Going to Phuoc Hue temple with Khoi to listen to Buddhist's teaching. This week topic is What is Happiness and Path to Enlightenment. The teaching of Buddhist philosophy is fasinating, especially the moral of life. Buddhist philosophy make me see the beauty in simple things. There were other topics but the literature were too advanced for my understanding.

The temple also held classes for kids from year 7 to year 12 every Sunday, it designed to help them with their school work. Most of the tutors there are university undergraduate volunteers, maybe I should sign up to take up a class, it looked like fun.

Gmail account

Activated my Google mail account today, half.man.half.shark@gmail.com, courtesy of Ralph Tan.

Gmail aint what it hype up to be. Your chance at grabbing an unique username is as good as finding one from Yahoo mail. The only feature which I was impressed is the anti-spam-engine. This is how it works, Google collects all the characteristic of a spam mail in a repository. This act as an intellegent-anti-spam-engine filtering out incoming messages before displaying the rest to the Inbox.

I can see a new Open Source project opportunity here, a plugin for Mozilla/Netscape/Thunderbird and others proprietary mail agents with the ability to download spam-definition, it will rejects all messages found to be "spam". Should any developers be interested, please contact me.
