I can't do this.

I can't even start with the 30 days blog challenge.

No words can describe my miserable feelings.

No need to understand.

No attention needed.

Green Lantern - Movie Review

Date: 17 June 2011
Time: 8.30 pm
Cinema: Megalong Cineplex, Donggongon, Penampang, Sabah
Movie Rating: 3/5

Trailer makes me feel that it will be a marvelous movie to watch. I am a bit disappointed after watching it. No climax at all. I think it's because of the introduction part of the history of Green Lantern made it sucks. Too easy to defeat the villain. I love Blake Lively's character in there. So not Gossip Girl. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are just two hot actors combined to attract fans to watch the movie. However, I really love the moral of the movie :) With courage, anything is possible!

Last night we met few friends Mr & Mrs Kelvin Mijol and families Aunt Dionysia & hubby at the cinema. All watching the same movie. Special thanks to my cousin Fifi for treating me with popcorn & discount berabis! Next time belanja lg k. Pnya main gembira dpt free popcorn.

So you people who have not watched it yet. Don't get your hopes too high. It's only average. For me at least. Oh can't wait for Transformers!

Job Interview Tips

I have searched for a number of going-for-an-interview tips from the internet. None of them seemed useful though except for one. Rest assured, I will try to give out my own tips for you. I even found tips which are hilarious and full of wth-ness. Not going to publish it here. World peace!

Ok. The one and only website which I think are really useful are (Lulus) Tips Temuduga Kerajaan and (Bongkar) Soalan Lazim Temuduga Kerajaan.

Do visit the websites mentioned above if you're going for an interview!

These are some job interview tips from me. Tada! Can be applied when you're going for a Government job interview or any job interviews.

  1. Do some research about the job that you will be interviewed in. (Job duties, description, salary etc.)
  2. Do some research about their company. (Directors' names, divisions, function etc.)
  3. Read the newspapers. (Local news, world news etc.)
  4. Memorize the names of our Agong, PM, TYT and etc. (It helps when you know who are your orang kuat in the Ministry. If you're lucky, they won't even bother to ask you the names. No worries.)
  5. Dress accordingly. (Formal attire is recommended the most )
  6. Arrive early (20 or 30 minutes) at the place where the interview will be conducted. (You will never know what other problems might occur. Traffic jam, lost and etc.)
  7. Be confident and try to be yourself (Do not try to become another person. Just relax! If that job is meant for you, it IS meant for you)
  8. Give the interviewers FIRM answers (No need to elaborate too much or else people will get bored)
  9. Smile! :)

Voila! That is all from me. GOOD LUCK!


P/S: Tips given are based on my own experience! Good news. I've got the job! Thank you Lord.

Gaya Street Time!

Last Sunday was indeed a very perfect day for a visit to Gaya Street. I went there with Darryl's mum, aunt Maria & cousin Grace. Snapped a few pictures with my Sony Ericsson T715 phone.

The famous fashion dog
 According to the owner it is a he. His girlfriend is at home doing house chores. LOL

Pure Breed Bengal Kitten
 RM750 each. That's a very big kitty. Miao miao. I forgot to ask how old are they.

Closer look of them
 They look like bf's Tiger. She's currently missing. My Kiko too :( Please come back Kiko & Tiger. We miss you bah.

Signature Freeze with Oreo
 Cost me RM10.05. RM5 cheaper than Starbucks. Yummieeee!

Steffy & Grace
 We were tired after just 1 round of Gaya Street. When bf's mum & aunty wanted to go for another round, the 2 of us surrendered. So, we decided to just to wait for them near the Old Town while reading magazines.

Gaya Street, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

Traffic behind Jesselton Hotel
View from Menara Jubili's car park at 3rd Floor. That's where I park the car each time I go to Gaya Street :)

A guide to West Malaysians for Sabahans


JUNE 1 — Since I have written a guide for West Malaysians about Sarawak, perhaps it is only fair I write about Sabah. But writing “Sabah 101” seemed boring so I flipped it around and now here’s a handy reference for Sabahans dealing with the influx of West Malaysians thanks to AirAsia.
1. Most West Malaysians really don’t remember September 16, 1963, and when asked, will only remember that “Malaysia gained its independence in 1957.” Don’t blame them; blame our badly-written history textbooks. Incidentally, they were written by West Malaysians.
2. West Malaysian Muslims are a lot more uptight than the ones in Sabah. If you take them to a soto stall that is situated outside a Chinese coffee shop, don’t be offended if they refuse to eat in fear of the food not being halal (kosher). If they are Malay and Muslim, make sure the eatery has a halal signboard.
3. Expect them to be very nosy about what race or religion you are. If you happen to look Chinese but greet them with the Muslim salam or you look Malay and are eating pork in front of them, prepare for either looks of shock or ones of taking offence. West Malaysians seem to get offended easily, for some reason. (Proof can be found in the comments of my columns, funnily enough written by people in West Malaysia)
4. Some of them will ask really stupid questions. Just smile and blame, again, our education system. What else are they supposed to think when the only references to Sabah and Sarawak in textbooks are usually illustrated by pictures of natives in traditional costumes?
5. Even if they have landed in Kota Kinabalu, they might still forget that Kuching is not in Sabah. Resist urge to make fun of their poor grasp of geography. Besides, that’s my job.
6. They can’t even get tapai and tuak straight either. So if they ask you for the latter, smile and suggest they look for the heady beverage in Sarawak. Say it gently, remember point three and five.
7. Also, a lot of West Malaysians regard tapai as a sour-smelling delicacy made out of either rice or tapioca. So if the nice Malay makcik enquires about tapai, she probably means that and not the locally beloved alcoholic beverage. Drunken Malay makciks are not pretty sights.
8. Put up with their griping about the need for immigration controls. And their whining about not being allowed to come and go in Sabah as they please. Remind them of the 20-point agreement. Make a joke about us being afraid they’ll come in and take all our timber. Then add, “Haha, but you already did!” Enjoy the peaceful silence.
9. They will also express shock at how rustic Kota Kinabalu is compared to Sabah. Just shrug and say that whatever money Sabah makes from oil and its natural resources all go to the federal revenue. Also that more than half of the people living below the poverty line come from Sabah.
10. If they ask why East Malaysians like to drink a lot and even make it part of our culture, remind them of point nine.
11. West Malaysians cannot quite work their head around the many tribes in Sabah as the local propaganda and tourism paraphernalia in West Malaysia make it seem like most Malaysians are generally Malay, Chinese or Indian. Again, our education system sucks. As does our information ministry.
12. West Malaysians from rural areas are really sheltered, and thanks to that, are prone to saying stupid things. One example: “The Greg Typhoon in Sabah was caused by sinful Sabahans having wild parties and the storm was God’s punishment.” I was told this by a pious Malay girl from Kedah. Refrain from punching said people in the mouth. They really don’t know any better and also read too much Mastika.
13. For some reason, people from West Malaysia think Harian Metro, Mastika and Utusan print truth and not fiction.
So be gentle with our fellow Malaysians from the peninsula. Sabah and Sarawak have long been a distant mystery, the cash cows and fixed deposit of the federal government. Now that West Malaysians are beginning to realise that we are just as civilised as they are, they might not take us quite as much for granted.
But it’s still fun making fun of them.

Top Three Winners of Unduk Ngadau Stand to Become MASwings Cabin Crew


Source: New Sabah Times


KOTA KINABALU: The top three winners of the upcoming State-level Kaamatan Festival Unduk Ngadau pageant stand a chance of being recruited to work as a cabin crew for MASwings.


“If they wish to join as cabin crew, 50 per cent is already considered acceptable while the other qualities will be looked into during the interview. They will also become our icons in billboards to reflect our identity,” said MASwings managing director, Dato’ Capt Mohd Nawawi Awang.


He said this at the presentation of sponsorship to the State-level Kaamatan Festival, organising committee chairperson, Jornah Mozihim, in a form of a business class fare for the champion and an economy class fare for the first and second runner-up at a hotel yesterday.


The sponsorship tickets covers air travel to any destinations in Sarawak and Sabah served by MASwings, as well as the BIMP-EAGA region such as Brunei and Kalimantan, which the airline is still awaiting for approval from the respective governments.


Nawawi said they are eyeing to start operations in July to provide services to and from Kota Kinabalu to Bandar Seri Begawan and Kuching to Pontianak. Then, in October, the service from Kuching-Mulu-Bandar Seri Begawan and Kota Kinabalu-Tawau-Tarakan is expected to be launched.


These are all viable routes which are under ‘MASwings International’ programme and also within the operating capacity of the aircraft which is one hour, he said.


On their sponsorship for the Kaamatan Festival, he said it is under their newly launched programme called ‘Wings of Love’.


“Since we are serving here, in future we want Sabah and Sarawak to consider that this airline belongs to them. Furthermore, 90 per cent of our staff come from these two states and we also want to position MASwings as the icon for Sabah and Sarawak,” he stated.


As part of our service to the community, the sponsorship today is our first activity under the Wings of Love programme and we want to be a part and parcel of the community because the people of Sabah and Sarawak are supportive of MASwings, he said.


Besides MASwings, the organising committee also received a sponsorship from Tamariska Tour for the top three winners in a form of a full board luxury holidays to Bali, Indonesia for five days and four nights, departing anytime this year.


Tamariska business development director, Boniface Mosios, who handed over the sponsorship to Jornah, said the winners would also be given free lifetime Tamariska membership plus holiday vouchers worth US$100.


“This sponsorship is part of our corporate social responsibility and it signifies the company’s support for KDCA’s continued efforts in cultural preservation, which is important for uniting the people, enhancing understanding amongst all the ethnic groups, and a celebration of a unique diversity of culture of people around the world,” he said.


Meanwhile, the State-level Unduk Ngadau champion will be offered a scholarship worth RM25,000 courtesy of Asian Tourism International College here.


Its assistant Chief Executive Officer, Defiry Ubin, said the winner can sign up for a diploma course in the hospitality and tourism management as well as culinary and pastries programme which has a high demand in the market.


“We have been sponsoring for the Kaamatan Festival since 2002, and since then, only three candidates had completed their course in the college,” he said.


Jornah said the State-level Unduk Ngadau final on May 31, is expected to be contested by 41 beauties representing the districts, sub-districts, municipal councils and city hall.
