Obama Craze in the States?

I saw this news over at CNN which made my jaw drop literally. i was like :O

Apparently a plate of half eaten waffles and sausage, together with its cutlery; eaten by Obama himself was put on auction on e-bay. Its apparently plastic wrapped and frozen right after Obama left it there.

After about 36 bids or so; maybe less or more; it reaches USD 20100. Pretty shit expensive for some half eaten waffles don't you think?
Many would have though that is action would made the guy who posted it up smilling till his lips can't frigging stretch no more....

but the end of the description of the item was...
"money raised from the sale of Senator Obama's breakfast would "go to Hillary for President!!!! Haha.""

would you like pay usd20100 for half eaten waffles? you could get fresh ones with ice creams on top in AnW for less than 10 bucks..

Add another title here....

Listening now to : Ash Like Snow - The Brilliant Green

Its been a long while since the last post and its been a topsy turvy period of time since then.

Was at the Sean Kingston 'concert' last Friday. I wouldn't really called it a concert as, he blardy performed for only 30 minutes. In fact, I think the opening act by MC Jin was a whole lot more interesting. Sean Kingston aka. FDWKV ( Fat Dude With Kool Voice) came with 2 backup rappers, a DJ who in fact did most of the entertaining with mixing and pre-recorded vocals, as well as some bad-ass dulan looking body guards.

Even all that, the moment that chubby dude opened with " Me love" every girl in the hall literally melted...Its not to say that its a bad 'concert', but a world tour when only dropping by a Zouk and sing and dance for like about 30 minutes? He even showed his emo-ness on stage...haha
Its not a disappointing showcase, but it wasn't that impressive either. Prolly due to the fact that the tickets was free.

After that 'concert' jetted down over to Laundry for some drinks with some friends. They actually did something that i would say ' siao'. Malibu Surf tasted like cough mixture and it was too damn concentrated. So, we MUST add some ice to dilute it a bit, along with some PussyCat and Tequila Sunrise along with some white wine Obviously the outcome wasn't as expected. I thought i tried the Colorado Bulldog. When it arrived, my drink looked like Nescafe Ping' from some higher grade mamak. It wasn't that bad, a concoction of coffee liquor, cola and vodka.

Weeks work came and went. Was out of office the whole week as i need to attend to some stuff coming one after another at our Data Center.

Friday night came again, and i was declared emo for the day. zzz
Some stuff happened la. After work, i went with for some Korean BBQ with some friends. Well, the food was a whole lot tastier and more savory compared to the last one i had. This store passed my taste and it was good. Well worth it.

We then went over to Laundry and started off with the Blue Margarita tower to ' wash' and 'clear' ourselves. Then Eddy ordered this for me....
Obviously thats not the real picture. Its googled. No pictures was taken then unfortunately, but a short video of me downing it was taken -.-.

In case for those who don't know. Its the Flaming Lamborghini. A concoction of, Blue Curacao, Sambuca, some coffee liquor and some Galliano ( or something or rather...don't remember the spelling). Its where several glass for stacked up into a tower like contraption with the coffee liquor+Galliano(?) at the bottom. The Sambuca was set a flamed and was pour over from the top of the 'tower'. As it flowed into the coffee liquor, the Blue Curacao was added into. And that i went i sticked the straw into the liqour and start sipping it dry..Careful not to get hair burned. It was good, but the afters, i felt my throat and the part where the drink flowed into my stomach as thou it was burning. Got really dizzy then after that. Fortunately i can still drive. Thanks to Eddy for tailing my car all the way home.

Was sent this by Kazuki. Apparently he is some Japanese Comedian acting gay, a former wrestler. Dont mind the title, enjoy the video. Its really funny. Hoooooo!

Thats about it i guess.

Add title here

Currently listening to : Whoever Brings The Night - Nightwish.

BTW the title was so as i don't currently have any ideas what to put there....

Nightwish by the way is a Finnish rock band. The songs they play have a mixture of heavy rock as well as some slower beats. No, they are not new; they have been around for awhile already, not really well known at our shores. Speaking of which....
ITS HERE!!!!!!
Thanks to Kazuki for helping me getting this album via e-bay. Got hooked to it since i 1st heard their songs and now i can even enjoy them in the car. haha. Went over to MidValley and also saw this album at one of the record stores there; the one opposite Nike. Gutted at first knowning that i gone through all the trouble of getting it via e-bay. Then i saw the price...RM46.80 when i only got mine for like half the price.

I damn like the song Last Of The Wilds from this album. Its an instrumental song, with the beat and rhythm of an Irish Dance tune. Soothing and really nice..
I also got a version where there are singing in it, but it was sung in Finnish and i could bare understand what is mentioned there. BTW, the songs in the album are in English...

have a contest where, if you registered with them, they calling you and you having a Sean Kingston caller ring tone, you automatically win 4 passes to watch that chubby dude perform in Zouk. I'm not really a huge fan of his; but i guess why got give it a try. So i registered with them and one fine day....last Friday to be exact,
The DJ from, if i'm not mistaken, it was Jin; contacted me. I was shocked as i wasn't really hoping to win.
This is how it goes, if i remember clearly that is..

me: Helo?
Jin: is this Daniel?
me: ya.....
Jin: you just won 4 passes to watch Sean Kingston live at Zouk!!!!
me: wow...thats great...
Jin: now scream like a girl
me: .....

ok the last 2 line was added by myself here as i don't really remember what was spoken there...

So, i got 4 passes to watch this chubby dude at Zouk.
Ok lar...just go there and have some fun and release some work stress.
The concert will be at Zouk this 11th of April. from 9pm onwards...

Currently i have been thinking of try a new hobby. I've been reading about and considering about rearing and breeding crystal shrimps..

Pretty aren't they. But they are rather costly in the market, with the lowest grade ( those with more red than white) comes to about RM10 each. High grade ones ( those with more white or have some distinctive red pattern on them) can reach the hundreds each, They aren't that big either, with most of them are no longer that the diameter of a 20cent coin. Feeding won't be that much a problem thou as they feed on vegetation, so a cut of cucumber or tomato would suffice. Problem will be the shrimps itself, an big enough aquarium; 2 ft at least if you wanna breed them, lightings as well as moss and water vegetations for them to munch on. Heard they groom the moss rather than eat them.

Guess now i would just settle with this

Sadly, those are not my fish. haha. I'm just settling at aquascaping and rearing discus and other ornamental fish.
This is not my tank too....but this is mine...

Not as impressive...haha. Those pictures are outdated, have not taken a picture of it now..lazy
Too bad i cant put crystal shrimps in here else they will be eaten as soon as they enter the tank.

So another note. Arsenal crash out of the UCL in a 5-3 aggregate to Liverpool. What i would say is the referee influenced this result. A clear penalty where Kuyt dragged Hleb down in the penalty box in the 1st leg was not given. That game ended 1-1. In the 2nd leg, it was 2-2 in the 84th minute with Arsenal looking to go thru via the away goals rule. A minute later, Babel was judged to have been fouled by Toure and a penalty was given. The challenge was from outside the box so it should be a free kick, Babel went looking for a penalty, in other words he dived, and its a soft penalty to give. Many said the Kuyt-Hleb incident warrants a penalty rather than the Babel - Toure incident. Its done, Steven Gerrard buried the resulting penalty and Babel went on to add another when Arsenal was pushing for another goal in the last minute of the game.

Well, IMO, Arsenal often get decisions against them where they are not the 'big' team compared to the likes of Liverpool or Barcelona. Decisions always goes against Arsenal. I would say the three games against Liverpool was overshadowed by some poor referee decisions, especially both the UCL ties. What to do, we are hated....sigh...

Sometimes....shit happens

Currently listening to : It Doesn't Matter - Wyclef John feat. The Rock

I am now feeling...

As we know, its all different day, same shit. Was out on site somewhere today. Was suppose to setup or replace a print server. It all started from installing Windows into the system. As the OS was stored within the network, we had to boot from the network. And guess what,

Access Denied!!!

WTF? Its been ongoing since yesterday, and by attempt after attempt, it still shows the dreaded 'blue screen of death' ( BIOS screen is blue wert....). So try and try, and out of the blue (lol) it went through. FINALLY!!!!

Then to install the printers...all in a days work. To add a network printer, we used the IP address. done, tested and it works...yay!! then someone had to change the IP to a name for the printer, causing it to not work..Alright he seems like an IT guy and he does work in the organization, i just let him do his configurations la...And it did not work; screwing up the printer set up. So just let him play around with the settings and configuration, still did not work.

Then its when i got
and told him that if it works with IP address earlier, lets give it a try again. Then it works, try printing from a remote location, and it blardy WORKS TOO!!!!
Then i told him to do the same for the other printer and it WORKS locally as well as from a remote location.

And all that took like 15mins +-. The configuration and settings he did but to no result took almost 2 hours. As i had to be there, i was there looking at him doing his stuff, feeling really TULAN....

Really glad thats over and done with...

On the lighter note, went to Kepong for steamboat on the 1st with Ivan, Alwyn, Fiona and Jason. Did not manage to get an pictures of the food as we are all hungry famished ghost. Once it is boiled and ready, we just dug in. Verdict is, the food is good, lots of variety and quite reasonable too. No, its not a buffet but we did order what we wanted instead of the conventional sets that most steamboat outlets offer.
Tomyam soup, together with their special home made blended red and green chilli, a dash of garlic oil and some fried onions to go along with the fresh ingredients ( cant think of any other word at the moment) was the next best thing to heaven. Yes it was really that good, or im just really hungry to the level that everything tasted good. haha. Seriously is was good.

Champions League yesterday and today...
MU beating Roma at Olympico was kinda expected but 0-2 was quite a flattering scoreline I'd say. Barcelona expectedly shown their class with a 1-0 away win at Schalke. Fenebache with what would be the result of this match day with their 2-1 win over a much favored Chelsea. Arsenal being held by Liverpool at the Emirates for 1-1. OK result for Arsenal i guess, but its rather disappointing because of the possession that Arsenal enjoyed and being denied a blatant penalty when Kuyt dragged Helb down in the penalty box. However, no point dwelling in that matter.

if google's promotion tool was like this
it will be a whole lot more famous...IMO..

and something i stumble upon in a forum...

Thats all for now i guess...
