House flooded

Apparently , since yesterday I believe , my house in Tawau has been hit by a flood , call it a flash flood if you want although it wouldn't sound right . It turns out that the river have over-flowed , and from what I heard from a friend , the water level was so bad that it reached his hips . Seriously that's high!He's like 180 cm , so if it was me must have been until my stomach edi . Poor house , hopefully nothing was spoilt because of the water seeping into the house . Nobody is actually there for the house , elder sister is staying in KK , middle sis in KL , and me , I am studying in Penang . and so you see , the house is isolated , so kesiannnn , I love the house so much you know!!

I think my big sister should have arrived the house already just to check things out , she is anyway the nearest and fastest to arrive Tawau if needed . Hope nothing really bad happen to my house la , I want to have my semester break already , and I really really want to stay home alone there , I really wannaaaaaa ...

Neighbours from the sorrounding tamans? How are your houses? Taman Sunny ? Taman Emas? Maju Jaya? Xin Ann???

vic's bday

Latest picture with Victor ( middle top)

Today(18/3) is the day where an old friend of mine turns 20 and perfectly eligible to drive a girl around in town since he just received his CDL a week ago . *provided the "home JPJ " gives you the green light la Victor !!! heheheh XD "

Just to lengthen this post , I think I would gladly write on the history on how we got to know each other . It all started back then when I was tranferred back to SM ST PATRICK in Tawau from SMK VICTORIA in KL . And yeah , everything was quite new for me , I have to admit I was a bit lost as I was thrown into different environment . Back in KL the school was a an all-boys school , exceptions to the Form 6 la . And yeah you know , this time round I was mixing with boys and girls again , and the truth is , although I was quite uncomfortable at first , it was all cool again a few weeks after that , I love it very very much compared to school life in KL .

I remember , coming back to schooling in Tawau , I knew I would meet up with some old familiar faces , and yes , there was TKP lo , at first look we knew each other , although it was just a plain "hi " .The first day of class, I placed myself in the middle row, the front one !
I felt weird . I was like a new guy in town and nobody really knew me after I went missing just like that 2 years back .

Then the class teacher came , Cikgu Jaitun Banggu . yeah I remember her , she seems to remember my dad's name , and therefore knows my sister ( sister was her pupil ) , and which in turns made her paid a little more attention to me as I was new in class .

She rearranged the whole class and I , as a result of being among the few tall guy ( at that time la) , I was placed at the furthest row at the back.Lemme see if I can still remember the arrangement for my buddies in the same row with me :-

Isaac | Soon | Ket | Su | Me | Victor | Khai | Shang
King | Voon | Chun | Cheng |___ | Tan | Loong | Zu

Oh yeah I do remember , hahahaha .

This is where I get to know this Victor Tan , he , along with a few more like TKP , Tim the shen , GJ , Jeannette Wong , Pang YF and Evelyn were the first few that approached me during my first few days . So it was like , cool man , they're being friendly to a new guy!

Focusing on Victor , we shared the hobby of listening to musics that time , and every Monday , we would talk about the chart on Sunday . Hahhahaha , hey we even sang to songs together rite??? just to kill some time , or maybe the teacher wasn't in .

In PRS , we own the room on Wednesday , hahaha , funny la thinking about it now . Jaga petang was more like relaxing in the afternoon , nobody really came for help right Vic :P .
We just listen to Radio 4 . Ah , I remember Avril's My happy Ending was booming , very popular that time .Got radio ma in the room , XD !!!

In academics , you always like to compare with me one la , and there's only one subject that I will always lose to u I think , and it's Geography , I really suck at it !!! But as for History , I'm the king la Vic!! hehehehe , We also fight with the English subject , we were in the TKP , GJ , Tim the shen league ba Victor , we top 5 one ma . Puan Agnes really sayang us oneee :P

And the following years , Form 4 and 5 , we sat in about the same territory again , so we were able to talk and stay connected lor until now . Covalent bonding ah Victor ? dun play2 oh? later 133 kill u , denda u 200x , hahahah .

Last but not least , wish u a good 20th birthday , think you went to Promende Hotel with your family right? Don't play2 with Tawau girls ah , they don't go krazy without me one . hehehe , ok then

Friendly Reminder : Don't Drink AND Drive ah Victor
A perfect picture of you drunk XD

16 Facts About Sleeping

I have been reading this from the net , just thought I should share it ( actually want to post something on the blog de , cari alasan sajaaa XD)

Fact #1

Chronic snoring can be treated by uvulopalatopharyngoplasty, a surgical procedure that tightens the tissues of the soft palate and throat. But , there are possible side effects like changes in your voice frequency.

Fact #2

Another way to fix snoring is by injecting a chemical solution onto the palate to harden the soft tissues , which the process is called snoroplasty .

Fact #3

The traditional practice that is believed to help a person to fall asleep - the sheep counting , is actually a no-no . A recent study by Oxford University researchers concluded that this method is ineffective and that the this mental activity is so boring that it forces other problems and concerns to surface , which in the end doesn't solve your problem of sleeping.

Fact #4

Mattresses have an average life span of eight to 10 years. They grow some nasty stuff in that time. A study has linked mattress bacteria to sudden infant death syndrome(SIDS) too .

Fact #5

An adult bed bug can survive up to one year without food .

Fact #6

The number of adults aged 20 -44 asking for prescriptions of sleeping pills have rose double in the last 4 years .

Fact #7

A lot of car crashes are caused by drowsiness , and that talking on the cell phones increase therate of accidents by 6 percent . So , better not call anyone when you are driving when you are tired .

Fact #8

You wake up at 5.30 am in the morning although you set your alarm to 6 am . This happens because of the internal clock inside your body . It is triggered by a stress hormone called adrenocorticotropin , which enables some people to wake up naturally at the time they desire.

Fact #9

A six-year study of a million adults showed that people who get only six to seven hours of sleep a night have a lower death rate than those who get eight hours.

Fact #10

In 1964, 17-year-old Randy Gardner stayed awake for 264 hours and 12 minutes, the officially recognized world record. He then slept for 15 hours -- not a record, but not bad.

Fact #11

The European Union launched a campaign on eliminating siestas , or better known as afternoon naps .

Fact #12

The idea that it is dangerous to wake a sleepwalker is a myth.

Fact #13

Whales and dolphins can literally fall half asleep. Their brain hemispheres alternate sleeping, so the animals can continue to surface and breathe.

Fact #14

Dreaming is related to bursts of electrical activity that blow through the brain stem every 90 minutes during REM* sleep. Over a lifetime, an average person spends more than six years dreaming, clocking more than 136,000 dreams in all.
*a stage of sleep that recurs several times during the night and is marked by dreaming, rapid eye movements under closed lids, and elevated pulse rate and brain activity

Fact #15

Nobody knows why we dream.

Fact #16

Somniphobia is the fear of sleep.
