Check this out !

A jobless man applied for the position of "office boy" at Microsoft. The HR manager interviewed him then watched him cleaning the floor as a test. "You are employed" he said. "Give me your e-mail address and I’ll send you the application to fill in, as well as date when you may start. The man replied "But I don’t have a computer, neither an email". "I’m sorry", said the HR manager. If you don’t have an email, that means you do not exist. And who doesn’t exist, cannot have the job."

The man left with no hope at all. He didn’t know what to do, with only $10 in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10Kg tomato crate. He then sold the tomatoes in a door to door round. In less than two hours, he succeeded to double his capital. He repeated the operation three times, and returned home with $60. The man realized that he can survive by this way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late. Thus, his money doubled or tripled every day.
 
Shortly, he bought a cart, then a truck, and then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles. 5 years later, the man is one of the biggest food retailers in the US. He started to plan his family’s future, and decided to have a life insurance. He called an insurance broker, and chose a protection plan. When the conversation was concluded the broker asked him his email. The man replied, "I don’t have an email." The broker answered curiously, "You don’t have an email, and yet have succeeded to build an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you had an e mail?!!" The man thought for a while and replied, "Yes, I’d be an office boy at Microsoft!"
Moral of the story
M1 – Internet is not the solution to your life.
M2 – If you don’t have internet, and work hard, you can be a millionaire.
M3- If you received this message by email, you are closer to being an office boy/girl, than a millionaire.

RACE DAY

yes its coming to soon, its what i call RACE DAY, race day is in fact AXN CHALLENGE which will be held on 1st OCT, and to me it will prove to be a real challenge as its a task which involves running around KL with lots of gruesome adventrure and mystery challenge to solve before moving on to the next route. its like Amazing race where we have to complete a task before moving on to the next round, this year 2005 AXN challenge will have a whopping 60+ teams to race with. And one of the team i found out was, Jeff’s team named TEAM HAVOC, but  i wont be competing with you guys as i am in the mixed team.. nyek nyek nyek.. ya milk carton (thats our team name) remember that and remember it well..

1. MANFRED SAM: the boy hulk
2. OLIVIA HERNENDEZ: the powerwoman

paradise far away

yesterday when i opened my friendster account, someone added me, and i was surpirsed to know that a leng lui added me wor.. but of course i am not going to tell you who that was.. but she made me come to light again by saying this word ! quote "i see you love the beach very much" unquote.
 
 yes she have awoken my beach bum side again, and hell yeah its been long since i went to a beach. which actually was like last month,(ok ..one month is very long for me ok, i need the beach and sea water) last month  i went to phuket. but that wasnt enough for me, as those beach are commercialized.. wasnt really happy with it, no girls in bikinis, i was wakling around the coastel area with my broadshorts.. but there was no one doing the same, and ppl was staring at me, like what is this dude up to ? sigh .. i miss those days of phi phi where it was like a island community. just be who you are.. and no one gives a shit…
 
i am yet to go to philiphines and bali, heard the beaches there are nice, any ppl from philiphines who want to bring me around ? can i bunk in your house? i will cook for you and clean your house.. please…hehe.. well looks like my one month in Koh Samui wont happen as i didnt win the FEAR FACTOR stunt. sorry all you beach bums out there .. i will still try to raise funds for it tought.. so no worries.. will let you all know when i can get the fund ready..
 
i dont know why i love the beach so much ? could it be the calming effect of the sea ? the waves ? the sand ? the sun? the sunset? the enviroment ? the breeze.. for it i think  it the effect of the skimpy bikini that has a blood rushing effect?? haha .. i dont know .. i think its all in a package. girls are there to flaunt their well carved body. well .. i can go on and on about beaches around the world.. well i have to stop myself here.. take care guys .. catch ya later ok
 
 
ps: if you have any island trip in mind, do let me know ok ..
 
and please enjoy the island pictures that i took when i go for trips,  some of it got formatted by my stupid computer.. i will put it in my photo album on the side.. but for now just enjoy. now i remember all my sydney, brisbane and melbourne pics got burned sigh ..

James Blunt – You’re Beautiful
 
My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I’m sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won’t lose no sleep on that,
‘Cause I’ve got a plan.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw you face in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I’ll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Fucking high,
And I don’t think that I’ll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw you face in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I’ll never be with you.
You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it’s time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.
