Back from Guangzhou

Home sweet home.

I’m back from Guangzhou. That’s about 30+ hours of no bath/clean up. So this is a quick & dirty update.

Spend my first night in the streets & casino of Macau. Won 300HKD.

Stayed in Panyu [番禺], it’s the town next to Guangzhou [广州]. Something like Kajang and KL. Digressing a bit… as we pass by Zhuhai [珠海], the city itself is like Putrajaya. The roads are wide, the landscaping along the main roads/streets is amazing. In a few years time, KL wouldn’t be able to compete even with a mid-sized town in China. Our BN politician (appallingly stupid and self-centred) are just too darned busy playing politic, harping on racial issues & comparing ourselves with with some 4th world nations.

Attended Ah Onn’s wedding. I was basically the official photographer despite my lack of experience. Thanks to Henry for over-promoting me. >.<

Went to Chime Long Amusement Park. Well, it’s sort of like Genting. Also went to Ju Long Bay hot springs resort [聚龙湾温泉度假区]. It was a nice mata air panas. Henry got an ear infection because air termasuk telinga. Also went shopping a little in GZ. I’ll be back to GZ again. This time, I’ll be heading to Jiuzhaigou [九寨沟+黄龙] or Zhangjiajie [张家界] or Guilin [桂林].

My last night was spend in the streets of Hong Kong… well 24hour McDonald’s actually.

Towards the last few days, I didn’t take a lot of photos. Probably because I feel so lost/blur and tired to actually take any photos at all. Crap, the Nikon D70s is a bloody hassle to take photos… too darn big @ss. I should so get a Canon G9 (or wait for Nikon/Fuji to come up with a G9 equivalent). Or maybe a Pentax K200, Olympus E-410.

Oh yeah, before I log off…
It’s not hard to get Henry drunk. All you need is a six-pack. Actually, half a six-pack will do. The crazy things he do & say when drunk is so dangerous he should be quarantine in Level 5298467 biohazard labs, not to mention he’ll keep on talking & talking & talking throughout the night. Oh, and camwhore too!

Take your foot off the brake!

This is a community service message.

At night, when stopping at the traffic light…

Please take your foot off the brake!

F*cking take you fat-leaden-foot off the brake! 

Why?

Because the brake lights are so d@mn bright so that it is visible even far-far away.

Becaues at night, the brake lights appear even brighter.

Because your brake lights are like ray guns shooting high energy red laser beams into my eyes.

Now what?

Shift into neutral gear (N), then pull the hand brake. After that, lift you foot off the brake pedal.

I hope after reading this, you practise it and tell others to do this too. Just be a little considerate for my eyes… and the eyes of the driver behind you.

Guangzhou… here I come!

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh baby, I hate to go…
[Haih… no one to kiss me and hold me. *sob* Tiba-tiba feeling emo…]
X^D

Well, I’ll be back on the 30th. See you guys then! There’ll be lots of photos to share. I’ll be covering a wedding too. Henry’s cousin in Guangzhou is getting married. So He invited me along with him to visit GZ and jalan-jalan. Of course, he had to bluff his cousin that I’m a professional kamera-men. So off I go to GZ!

Oh, due to the fact that my flight is to arrive in Macau before Henry’s uncle pick us up… I figure I might as well drop by the casinos and have some fun. Hah hah! Please hope that I win some money. You’ll never know… when I come back and see some well wishers leaving a comment or two here, I might belanja minum or something.

Turn on your lights in the car park

To all drivers in Malaysia…

This is a community service message:
Please turn on your lights in a car park.

No matter how brightly lit the car park is, just f*cking turn it on!

Why?

Because there are imbecilic pedestrians like me who are late for yamcha with my ‘pig friends dog acquaintances’ (猪朋狗友), sprinting past lines of cars across the car park.

Because there are mischievous (and short) children weaving in and out between the cars to be the first to reach the entrance.

Because there are even more idiotic drivers who suddenly appear out of thin air from the corner because they didn’t know you are also around the corner.

That’s why.

Refine & Define 2008 – The Dance Space

Oh, if I have not mentioned it before… now I’m telling you.

I sent in a form for the Men’s Health Refine & Define Challenge 2008. And I am selected as one of the 20 finalist. Woohoo! The challenge is to turn me into a real man’s man! X^D

So dancing is the third module out of 10. Off I went to The Dance Space in Plaza Damas on Saturday morning. The Dance Space is actually quite small lah. It’s just one big square room with wooden parque floor and a counter.


The Dance Space. That’s Mie posing for this shot. I put the magazine there simply for promotional purposes, and also to give the photo a sense of context, it is a Men’s Health event after all. flickr

I forgot who our dance instructor’s name. She’s a Thai and she taught us hip-hop… Aiseh, what is this lah. I don’t even go clubbing, so hip-hop basically doesn’t mean much to me. I was hoping that they might teach us some latin dance or some simple waltz. But I guess no guy will want to hold another guy’s hand and waist in a waltz. Ah well… hip-hop it is.

Contrary to my initial believe, hip-hop is actually not easy. I had the chance to learn a few steps from a friend last time. I just can’t synchronise my hands with my legs with my hips with my butts. Either I looked like a rusted robot with jammed gears, or a bone-less octopus squirming when I dance hip-hop or go to the clubs. I like dancing, but I’m no good at it.

I stood at the front. Why? Because I’d rather face the dance instructor’s back than to have 19 guys’ ass poking my eyes. I was just right behind the the instructor… and a few times she jokingly [& sarcastically] mentioned not to stare at her ass. Ooops, I must have overdone it. X^D


That’s Alif feigning exhaustion. flickr

After 2 hours, everyone was tired. There was a lot of movement, ass grinding, booty shaking & blur faces. If you want aerobic exercise the fun way, take hip hop lessons. We split and I went off for lunch with Alif, Dixon & Amran.

Belkin support in Malaysia

Belkin Malaysia phone customer service technical support
Belkin Malaysia phone customer service technical support
Belkin Malaysia phone customer service technical support
Belkin Malaysia phone customer service technical support
Belkin Malaysia phone customer service technical support

That should do it. People who Googles ‘Belkin Malaysia’ should reach here and actually get somewhere, instead of jalan mati by calling Belkin’s phone number.

Call AVF at 03-7783 3010
http://www.avf.com.my/contactus.asp
Address: No 14, Jalan 4/152,
Taman Perindustrian O.U.G,
Jalan Puchong, 58200
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I can’t paste the bl00dy Wikimapia map here. Stupid WordPress can’t seem to recognise html codes. It only accepts its own codes! It’s just like Apple+Steve Jobs — trying to take over my brains. Ciput!
So here’s the link to Taman Perindustrian OUG map in Wikimapia. [Note: You can’t come out from KESAS(Lebuhraya Shah Alam) to Jln Puchong [B11 & E5] on that junction next to Tmn Perindustrian OUG — it is a fly over, it’s not an entry-exit junction.

AVF is the distributor of Belkin products in Malaysia. Ask for Jack. Even he himself told me that Belkin’s toll-free line is useless. You want to claim warranty –> Jack; you want 1-to-1 exchange –> Jack; you want to RMA –> Jack; you want to check your device –> Jack. AVF is located in OUG Industrial Park, off Jalan Puchong. I’ll post a map later.
(The above info is correct at the time of print)

Stupid customer service of Belkin. Belkin’s customer service in Malaysia is non-existent. They only have a toll free line which will route (pronounced root, not ra-oot) your call to another continent (India? Philippines?). The CS representative will take down all sort of details about you and the product and confirm with you so many times that you begin to wonder if you just called a survey agency. It’s d*mn irritating. Then they will promise you that tech support will call you soon. How soon, only god knows. They were supposed to call me 3 weeks ago.

To Belkin…
If you can’t provide support here in Malaysia (I wonder why, since you do have an office across the bridge in Singapore), at least guide us to someone who can! List contact details of the official distributor of Malaysia (which is AVF). At least we know who to deal with when the Wireless G Router (pronounced rooter, not ra-ooter) goes bonkers. Your stupid CS rep don’t even know the distributor of Malaysia. Come on… don’t you train them properly? And your tech support still have not called me yet!
