Ah Beng/Ah Lian and Lala Zai/Lala Mui & Siham

Now let me try writing something about these categories of people as I'm somewhat placed into their categories as well at times (Think Sotong, think Seafood, think Lala/Siham).

Ah Beng / Ah Lian

Ah Beng and Ah Lian are terms commonly given to a member of a group of young Chinese men and women in Southeast Asia, particularly Singapore and Malaysia. These Chinese, whose age ranging from their early teens to late 20s, usually centralize in the busier and more developed cities in the region, but are usually seen as originating from smaller or more rural towns. They typically speak local slang, which is Hokkien or Cantonese mixed with English and Malay, such as Manglish or Singlish. They are often stereotypically portrayed to be anti-intellectual, superficial and materialistic and shallow. These values often lead to a lack of culture or indulgence in criminal activity or being involved in brawling or affray out of disagreement with other people. Ah bengs are also sometimes associated with extensively-modified or zhng-ed cars, and are stereotypically seen as being excessively flashy and show-offs. Ah Beng commonly are seen in gaudy patterned shirts, loafers without socks, gold jade rings and gold often counterfeit Rolex .

ah beng evolve

The term 'Ah Beng' and 'Ah Lian' are also sometimes used to describe young Chinese men and women in Southeast Asia who cannot speak fluent English and/or have graduated from the secular Chinese education system of the region.

Common words used by them
"Wat lah!" , "Ha Nah!" , "Oi!" ,"Happi Lah!" , "On ah!" and other phrases that end with 'lah'.

Danger level - 5/10 (If you're able to tolerate poor command of English, if not, approach with caution!! Brain damage would most likely happen)

LalaZai, LalaMui, Siham

Usual term to label people who acts tough in front of other people (usually gangsterisme) but it's actually a weakling inside. Often seen picking fights with others when they obviously outnumber their opponent 10 to 1. Compared with lala and siham, which are both aquatic creatures with hard shells but soft content inside the shells. Their appearances are usually modified to look more intimidating, usually with piercings, temporary tattoos and etc.


Danger level
  • 0/10 when you're facing him/her alone
  • 15/10 when you're facing 10 of them together
Here's something that I nicked randomly from the net to test if you belong in either of these categories.
  1. your hair has more than one colour tone. silver is excused, of course.
  2. your hobby is "staying back at school and play basketball with lalas"
  3. your mother drives a proton saga but youre using the most expensive handphone there is
  4. you suffocate if you do not swear in chinese for more than 2 hours
  5. you have a piercing at any other place than your ears. *for guys*
  6. your shirt can reflect light better than the construction workers "baju keselamatan"
  7. you can fit your pinky into your ear pierce.
  8. you wear polo during stayback to play basketball..
  9. you cant read the word "odyssey" or "illiad", and have to change them to "ilek osi" instead
  10. your car has more than two colours, an exhaust that can fit a baby`s head, a speaker that takes up 70% of your car boots space, more stickers than a toodlers sticker book, spoiler of the size of a desk and etc
  11. you think this post offends you.
Both Ah Beng and Siham

Aluminium Cabinets

Why aluminum cabinets? Easy. It lasts long, doesn't rust and looks great. These guys have outfitted so many garages before with aluminum cabinets and people everywhere are very satisfied with their work.

Now they're bringing aluminum cabinets to the next level. What do you think about aluminum cabinets in your kitchen?

I personally think it's great as kitchen is definite an important part of your home that you wanna have furnitures that not only looks good, but also long lasting. Exposure to water vapors in the kitchen might cause your regular wood cabinet to fall before long, but with aluminum cabinets, they could definitely outdo your normal ones.

The Magician

It's a very known fact for most of my friends that I'm not very keen or trusting towards things like horoscopes, tarots and fortune tellers.

However, I can't deny that the cool artworks on the tarot cards kinda' piqued my curiosity. So there was this site that would give a code for your tarot card upon you answering a few of their questions. Apparently those questions are kinda' direct to identify what kind of person are you which means, it's not much of a tarot reading, but it's something like a personality test.

Here's mine. Check it out.


You are The Magician


Skill, wisdom, adaptation. Craft, cunning, depending on dignity.


Eleoquent and charismatic both verbally and in writing,
you are clever, witty, inventive and persuasive.


The Magician is the male power of creation, creation by willpower and desire. In that ancient sense, it is the ability to make things so just by speaking them aloud. Reflecting this is the fact that the Magician is represented by Mercury. He represents the gift of tongues, a smooth talker, a salesman. Also clever with the slight of hand and a medicine man - either a real doctor or someone trying to sell you snake oil.


What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.



The next thing you know, I'll be selling snake oil at your nearby Pasar Malam!

Fire Ants

Nasty lil' creatures aren't they? Once you see one in your home, you better get help, cuz' it's very likely your house is infested by them. And if you're gonna leave them alone for awhile, your house structure would be as good as cotton shirt.

Here, check out Fire Ants Guide, a website dedicated to teach you what fire ants really are, their colony and many more ways to get rid of them, be it with bait or organic repellent.

Check it out even if you aren't dealing with any right now. Who knows, the information could come in handy in the future.

Packed

Man, I've never been so packed in my life before.


It's as if I'm the lil' girl in the bag

As most of you guys have already known, my classes for this semester is ridiculously insane with 6 days of classes in a week, 5 of them starting at 8am. To top things up, I hit the gym 3 times a week resulting most of my time during weekdays are spent outside my house till late evenings.

gym
Not the gym that I attended, just for illustration purposes.

I practically only have 1 day during the weekday which I have time for myself, which I used to go shopping for my clothings to fit my theme each week for my

shopping
Shopping is always fun. The not fun part is the money vanishing from your wallet...

Wait, it doesn't end here. Let's not forget college life is filled with excitement and pleasures as group assignments, presentations, tests and events never fail to entertain us. For this week alone, I'd sat for 1 mid term test, completed one written assignment. Up next, 2 presentations and 1 written assignment due next week which I can't utilize my weekend to do them. But hey, no complains there.

presentation
Presenting facts and information. Hmm.. I do enjoy that, but proper preparation is of course important as I really don't like screwing up in front of people.

Although I'm busy, but somehow deep down inside, I'm happy, that I can manage so much things at once. I'm really glad that pressures like these ain't holding me down, but making a better person out of myself. *pats self in the back*

How about you guys? Ever felt so packed or pressured before? Relevant experience shared would definitely be appreciated.

Cheers

Beauty and the Beast


Press play to listen

I'm gonna give all my rants and craps a rest for awhile and chill upon my favorite YouTube video. Helps recovering for my overworked mind and body a lot. It's actually a repost since I did put this in before in my blog quite some time ago, but I really love it. Haha.

Now this is definitely creative ain't it? Lol.

Random Priest and Rabbi Joke

A priest was called away for an emergency. Not wanting to leave the confessional unattended, he called his rabbi friend from across the street and asked him to cover for him. The rabbi told him he wouldn't know what to say, but the priest told him to come on over and he'd stay with him for a little bit and show him what to do. The rabbi comes and he and the priest are in the confessional.

A few minutes later, a woman comes in and says, "Father forgive me for I have sinned."

The priest asks, "What did you do?"

The woman says, "I committed adultery."

Priest, "How many times?"

Woman, "Three times."

Priest, "Say two Hail Mary's, put $5 in the box and go and sin no more."

A few minutes later a man enters the confessional. He says, "Father forgive me for I have sinned."

Priest, "What did you do?"

Man, "I committed adultery."

Priest, "How many times?"

Man, "Three times."

Priest, "Say two Hail Mary's, put $5 in the box and go and sin no more."

The rabbi tells the priest that he thinks he's got it so the priest leaves.

A few minutes later another woman enters and says, "Father forgive me for I have sinned."

Rabbi, "What did you do?"

Woman, "I committed adultery."

Rabbi, "How many times?"

Woman, "Once."

Rabbi, "Go do it two more times. We have a special this week, three for $5."

The Other Side of the Story

BP factory in Whiting, Indiana was recently featured in Chicago Tribune and they were a little misrepresented.

Here's the other side of the story before you should form any opinions regarding them.
  • Energy Security and Diversity - BP plans to spend $3 million to modernize the Refinery to process additional crude oil from Canada.
  • Only treated water into Lake Michigan - BP does not release sludge as claimed by some sources but at least 99.9% water as sludge were treated separately and not dumped in Lake Michigan
  • Well within legal limits - A new water discharge permit allows the refinery’s average ammonia discharge to increase, but at levels that will still be less than half of those that federal environmental guidelines could allow.
  • No harm to people or the environment - BP follows state and federal laws, regulations, and guidelines that protect aquatic and human life.
  • Continuous improvement - For the benefit of the environment, the Whiting Refinery voluntarily reduced total suspended solids in its water discharge by 40% in just the past four years.
  • Modern technology - BP operate a modern wastewater plant in Whiting today and plan to invest about $150 million to enhance the refinery’s wastewater treatment capability.
  • Jobs now and in the future - Today the refinery has about 1,700 employees and another 1,500 contract workers. The planned modernization will create new jobs for about 2,000 contract workers during peak construction, as well as an estimated 80 full-time BP employees when complete.
Facts can be misleading when the details are not whole. By having both sides of the story, opinions are more just to make rather than just having only one side of the story

Vader

Remember this?



Why am I talking about Vader all of the sudden? Simple, just watch the video below.


Those Japanese do have sense of humor, ain't it? Lol

And wait, there's a Phantom of the Opera version for Star Wars too! It's a bit lengthy but if you enjoy crappy singing to the tunes of Phantom of the Opera, I guess it's still enjoyable to laugh at it. Lol.

Tired


I am really tired. I wish I have more time for myself. Due to commitment in StarCeleb, freelance modeling, and assignments, tests in college and gym sessions, I'm totally worn out.

I would express myself more in details regarding these issues when I've gained sufficient rest. Sorry for lack of update guys.

Evil?


You gotta admit. How do you tell these things? Starwing tagged me with a note of saying me as an evil person. God sake, I refuse to admit that (sin No. 1 - lies). I'm such an angelic person! (sin No. 2 - blatant lie) There's no way I'm an evil person!

So I'm gonna do his meme about 8 random things about myself, to prove how nice of a person I am.

  1. I'm an honest person (Zeus must have been sleeping as there's no lightning striking where I stay). I always tell the truth unless I have significant gains from lying.
  2. I adore doggies and cats. Only nice people would do such things right? Evil dictators and world dominator would step on their gut and break their bones at sight.
  3. I love to love and be loved. Evil people won't care about love, right? Remember those movies? Example, Hairy Bottom Harry Potter, fights for love and Voldemort fight against love and compassion. (Note, I'm not linking myself to anything similar to Harry Potter cause I happen to hate him, but I adore Rowling's work)
  4. I smile a lot to my friends. It's not that I'm not friendly to others, but in Malaysia, try smiling to strangers and they'll think you're a nut case.
  5. I'm a modern day Robin Hood. I steal from the rich and give to the poor. (Except that the definition of rich is equal to anyone else I don't know and the poor refers to me. Kleptomaniac reporting.)
  6. I'm a very environment friendly person. I throw tissues and papers on the floor so they can return to the earth providing nutrients for everlasting green. XD
  7. I'm good looking. No one evil would be good looking ain't it? Lol. (Blatant Lie!!!)
  8. If I'm given 1 wish, I'd wish for ever lasting world peace. (Too much TV influence from shows like Miss Universe and etc) ( I'm damn afraid that a car would knock me over when I cross the road after this statement. Lol )
I'm done. I'm gonna tag Carmen, Julian, Wei Zhu and Kei. Prove to us whether you're an angel, or an evil devil.

As for me, I'm definitely an angel in disguise.

Robb

I Love You?

Another crap joke from my homie, KeeFoo. Nicked it from friendster and I thought it's worth sharing, so here we go.

Before the marriage:

He: Yes. At last. It was so hard to wait.

She: Do you want me to leave?

He: NO! Don't even think about it.

She: Do you love me?

He: Of course!

She: Have you ever cheated on me?

He: NO! Why you even asking?

She: Will you kiss me?

He: Yes!

She: Will you hit me?

He: No way! I'm not such kind of person!

She: Can I trust you?

Now after the marriage you can read it from bottom to the top.


Good for me to know my wedding bells are still far ahead. Lol.

Loves You
Robb

Stressed!


With so many days of classes this semester with assignments, presentations and tests upcoming, I can't help it but to feel stressed. Not to mention I've gotten into StarCeleb which is gonna take a chunk out of my weekends as well. No complains there, but the accumulation of workload is just starting to eat me up.

Let's talk about trivia matters for example, like my blog. Due to my previous post, there were many unpleasant reactions towards it and they involved strangers to even to the people close to me. I can't help it but to feel responsible for my post. But as usual, each action has its consequences, the most important thing is accepting it and making the situation best for yourself, ain't it?

As far as I know, only with pressures and stress can human beings improve themselves as life without pressure and expectations, there wouldn't be changes, would it? Cheers to the upcoming improvement for myself then.

*Psst* I could use some tips on how to handle stress. Any takers?

Stressed but still standing
