In court

Rock up to Fairfield Court House to appeal against my double parking infringement. Representing myself in court. The judge dismiss my case appeal and as well as my section 10 plea. He found me guilty, its a mastercard moment.

Double parking fine.. $95
Court fees.. $65
Amusement.. priceless

Good news. I passes all my uni exams, but somewhat disappointed, I was hoping to get a distinction for one of the subject. I passed my provisional licence rider training and skill test. Watchout world!

My life

My friend read my palm, I dont believe in these superstitious stuffs, but he said something like this - "You live a short life, maybe till late 30's or 40's. Then die of a sudden death. But you remain faithful to your wife."

Yes! I like the sound of that!

Day 1 - Sydney city

Taking Balasubramanya for a brief tour through Sydney city. Balasubramanya said something that make alot of sense, we both prefer to be marry to an Asian wife. Because Asian have the 'charm' which many Western girls dont have.

Day 2 - Blue Mountains

Taking Balasubramanya a tour of the Blue Mountains.

Christmas party and pocker every year at Vincent's. When I have 5-6 shots of muscle relaxant I become sensitive?! Lastnight I showed Julie how to slice the mango the way I like to eat it. She's a good girl, but I can make her perfect.

Not BF material

Buying some new shirts and sporting goods during end of year stocktake sales at Parramatta.

Thinh is right. When it comes to dealing with girls I'm as good as a 17-year old schoolboy doing surgery. I'm hopeless at it.

Another year has gone past, it was a good year indeed. So a new diary for another year, another chapter.
