I was born on the year of 1980′s but to most people they would always be surprised to know that i always tell them my Birthday, people would always think that i am older (i hated that) but its cause maybe of my appearance, sometime i dress up sometime i dress down, well when i dress down you are surely not able to guess how old i am, cause i would always be younger from what i look, and when i go out for formal function, people would always percieve me as older, (NOT GOOD)
anyway, so have you guess which day in december i was born in ? hint (the world, MIND YOU THE WORLD celebrates with me on my special occasion) why I blogged about this today is because i saw a characteristic of a capri and i liked it, SUITED me so well. here it is, i love being a capricorn as it has so many good attributes to it !
"Once you have made up your mind, dear capricorn, it is doubtful that anyone will find a way to change it, You are set in your ways and you have your plans laid in stone, (so so true) Having this sold base to stand on will allow others to support you in an extremely effective manner. You are trustworthy and predictable.(predictable part i am not too sure la) Others can depend on you and know where they stand in relationship to you (hhhmmm, how right this horoscopes is). Don’t let self-doubt slip in. (i do have self doubt sometimes. but its ok. i also have self belief !
Cheers and Catch ya later !
Lazy Sunday, took out my car to Curve to meet Eddy
I know la, stuck in the jam nothing to do my take pics of the car lor,
I wanted to change the interior to alluminium side panels. from TRD, cost a bomb, what do you think?
I want to mod the whole car to look like this man. 19" rims with extended TRD bumper styling.
Meet up with Eddy at the curve and didn’t know what to have for lunch, he told me to visit this place called Paddington house of Pancakes, I feel like sushi for lunch, but since Ed suggested Paddington "why not try out a new place for a change" Oh i am a very sushi person.
This Paddington is located on the second floor of Curve just opposite Casa Vino, the atmosphere reminds me of old english hut, hhmm.. or was it? I can’t recall la, ahah .. had my eyes on something else actually.
Yes i know, bad pic’s again, Lousy Camera ma, wait.. end of the month i will change to a better phone la, just bought a laptop no money liao la.
Eddy on the right, Well he was looking thru the menu to order something new, this is one of his favourite place to eat. Well he recommended me to eat Lamb or something like that, suppose to be good to him, well i didn’t order the lamb as i feel its too heavy for lunch.
Neways something caught my eye as its called FULL MONTY ! yes i know i am cheeky knowing that, Ed ordered the Sloppy Joe’s and his Wild Berry drink. He FORCED me to order drinks ler, haha, just felt like drinking Barley at that time, told him we go for barley later at kopitiam, so i didn’t order drinks.
all of a sudden barely 5 mins have passed, the food came WOW very efficient, but what the heck its only PANCAKES la, not very hard to make ma.
Can you guess which is Sloppy Joe and which is Full Monty ? (hint: use your imagination)
oh the ketchup on the left is what i always take when eating Mcdonalds, KFC, BurgerKing, etc..etc.. its not enough, I am known as the legendary Ketchup guy by all my friends, you dont want to know why they call me that.
oh this picture
shows that when i was finishing my water, there was some substance on the bottom of the cups. GROSS MAN! sigh nevermind la, it just shows how clean this place is.
Ambience: 4/5 nice place to bring your gf and bf for lunch or breakfast.
Service: 5/5 being fast and that guy gave me maple syrup (YUMMY)
Food: 3/5 erm, what do you expect Pancakes only ma,
Price: 2/5 what do you expect from this kinda of House of Pancake place.
Cleanliness: 1/5 well this is a new category after the cup incident. yucks !
Well i got to go now, Catch ya later !
No no no, its not about the football team, but its the REALPOWER drink which officially sponsors Real Madrid, how did i come about knowing this brand ? well i dont think its for sale but it was on promotion during the Presidential ride, they had a slogan "kickin time" , Man the legendary cyclist as said by some people in their blog and me was making fun of the slogan, saying Aiyo, this is a bike event la, change it to have a "BIKING time la"
why all of a sudden talking about a health drink? well its really POWER MAN, after the presidential ride, I needed to pick my parents up from KLIA as they were coming back from China, i couldnt as their flight was 10.30pm, so i was online till 10pm and then my cous told me that their flight was delayed, DAMM, waited all for nothing should have gone to sleep. Then a call came in at 12am, its my cous saying that we can go pick them up at 3.30am, AIYO! die man, so i took a little nap and woke up at 2.30am, felt so tired, took one of this drink to drink, and guess what IT WOKE ME UP INSTANTLY ! i swore to gawd this thing got some Erythropoietien (EPO) in it.
it has the taste of redbull as said by Jason aka Fish, but i guess its taste more to Livita with a gas, the first time it hits your tongue, it has a lemony taste with sourish apple aftertaste, mix it up with gas and viola its called REALPOWER drink. dont think you can get this in the store, so if you see this in the store and you know you are doing a endurance race, TRY THIS OUT !
Taste: 4/5 (can be to gassy for some people)
Price : TBA
ps: I Won a carton of these from the lucky draw at the PPC ride, ngek ngek ngek. so don’t say ask me why i am so fast the next time i riding my bike ok. (gave some to Mac and Fish, also let Jesus tried it out)
check this stuff out, it might be the next thing to win the tour de france for all the losing teams. muhaah .. THE ROCKET BIKE ! cheers
Yes this is the long awaited report of my 60km PCC Presidential Ride 2006, this is the most memorable event this whole year as of to date, because its just CRAZY, and GRUELLING i tell you, but i love it. I will not blabber alot on the report but only the bare essential of the details of the ride and my thoughts when i took the pictures ok, its going to be a photo blog for this report. Its not going to be much but bare with it.
Please mind the poorly taken picture as its only taken from my phone. its a lousy Mini O2, the camera is not that fantastic but the phone is superb. Do not worry phone is going to be upgraded to a better cam, something with over 3megapixels so i can report with better pictures next time (talk about that later)
As you can see its only about 7.15am and you can see the cars coming in to Kajang,Semenyih for the Presidential Ride last sunday. I even say Andrew Fang who is a Singapore bowler, i think those guys drove all the way from Sing over for this ride. Didnt say hi to him as he was with his friends.
yup, more people coming in even the start off time was 7.30am
this is not a race but a fun enjoyment ride for everyone.
Thats Valeris on the left with her BIKEPRO jersey, someone being sponsored wei, I think she is getting paid to be advertised not bad man. GO VAL, she is super hardcore anyway, so why not give her the jersey. Even i dont have one, Boon Foo would tell me go flykite. HaHA
The picture on the left is the registration point where riders have to register themself as i think the marshalls want to keep track of how many riders turned up for the event. oh those are not my bike. Wish it was.
On the Left is MAN and Mac, both having a power breakfast before the ride, Me and Jason as the powerbar was my breakfast, well no sponsors from them yet. but its ok. (hint hint) a little info on everyone, Man is from Penang and i think he is some kind of legendary MTB biker, he is old but to me he is only 25 at heart, i think he can kick ass any bikers at anytime, Mac needs no introductry as he is the Fitness hardcore, Jason the Fish as known to the fakawi tribal council as he has his kick ass bike ( a Giant Anthem, with Dangerboy lever, and great alot of other great parts )
told you my picture quality was bad, but the first on the top left is clearer, dont know why, must be Jason aka Fish posing for the cam. check out all the riders that turned up, about 500 strong, suppose to be 650 capped, but i dont think all turned up for the ride. OH did you see the hottie in whitey ? hehe
this is the start of the first stage, sorry i didnt took anypicture till the half hour cause it was a good ride into the forest, thats a picture of the hill on the most left, the middle picture is to show that we all had to come down and push the bike because of the traffic of riders, my trusty 11 year old bike. Mind you my bike has only 21 speed, a broken hub, and overused fork, has never been serviced from day one. Thats my bike and i love it,
I told myself to take all pictures of the Checkpoint to show that i went throught all 4 stages. Ain’t the scenic beautiful, on the center picture do you see the riders riding to the hut, gorgeous i tell you, the picture on the left is also one of the route. I do not know how to explain the feeling of being in a Kampung Valley as its really way beyond expression for a city slicker like me.
After crossing checkpoint two, refilling my water bottle, it was a very very scenic ride and i enjoyed it most till nearly the end of Checkpoint two, i had to cross the a little stream where it had wet my sole of my shoes, causing me to rub against my shoes ( you know what you get.. BLISTERS) and on the self portrait on the right hand side is a killer time when i thought my heart was going to busrt out, i was extremely hyper and climbing all hills without coming down from the bike as i was following some KOTRT people going up hill, till i met the hill of destruction, i call it Triple KILL, want to know why? well it was nearly the end of stage two and there was this killer climb, gung ho me went up the first thinking that its going to be over, so i went really fast and when i was reaching the so called top of the hill, it was a little right turn to a second hidden hill, My heart was pumping so fast i thought it was going to jumped out, i checked my heart rate monitor but it was only 178bpm, its just the exhaustion, so i rested on the first end of the hill, then i started to push up that hill to reveal that it has another higher and steeper hill to climb. IMAGINE going up three hills which gets steeper and steeper ! YIKES !
This was the second kill, look far enough into the picture you will see a turn up to the third hill. REALLY A KILLER ! see everyone pushing bikes ?ahah .. they all got conned on the first hill climb also just like me, but i think there are bikers that cycled up all the way. On the highest peak there was this trail which was really muddy and my bike ran into it, Guess what happened next, my V-brakes has lost its grip and its eating out of my rims, Screeching with every turn of my rims. Oh my rims turned black cause my brake pads was abraising the sidewalls. Stanley from Fakawi told me that i had to clean my rims if not my brakes are going to go soon. ( to be honest, the brakes are already worn off after the mud incident) I had no brakes from this stage onwards, i was using my feet as breaks. I had tried to clean the rims but to no anvil.
Me and Soon at a Hut in the middle of no where, well no where to me, but i think its a restaurant which serves food like tomyam, maggie mee etc..etc.. look at that BIG ENOURMOUS coconut that i am drinking, super sweet and really refreshed me. Well to the least that Checkpoint 3 still so far that i think la, better drink rather than get dehydrated! I was a one man show, but now i guess i had to cling on the Soon, Stanley, Shawn and gang. I hope they dont mind cause i have no brakes and i am slowing them down, Stanley was kind enough to ask me if i wanted to change my pads? (not the KOTEX with wings ok) but my brake pads, he took a look and said he didnt have a compatible wan. WOW ! thanks for everything man.
Thats Checkpoint three with a Watermelon Station, GREAT MAN ! i told Stanley that it was the BEST WATERMELON I EVER ATE (at that moment la) i quote Jason on what he commented on that station " No watermelon can compare with checkpoint three watermelon" Thats Stanley on the right, He is DA MAN ! i owe him man! hey Stan if you are reading this, THANK YOU ! after checkpoint Three i really wanted to quit cause i had no more brakes on my bike, i was practically doing two stages without brakes and my feet hurt cause i am using it as a brake when i go downhill. But i think it wont be far now for stage 4! what else can they throw at us in Stage 4 knowing that its already the last 3 trail was so difficult. Guess i was wrong. Stage 4 Peak was crazy after cycling like 5km of TARMAC, it was a very steep hill after 5km into the jungle DARN THESE PCC people who found this route, look at the two pictures below its actually 250meters up after Soon asked one of his friend to check the altitude on their watch, its just crazy ! can you see people sleeping ? yeah they are really sleeping, cause its the highest peak already of Stage 4.
well after a gruesome uphill climb which was impossible to cycle up, there is the dreaded downhill, where i had to use my legs as breaks later on, sigh oh well, I brought this on myself. I managed to go downhill with a bit of acrobatic skills on my bike and trusty SPD shoes of mine, i can tell you that my cleats on my left shoes are all worn out.
Thats Checkpoint 4 and its only 6km to the finish line, i was told that i was number 140 and its already 2pm, i think i am going to be late, ahah .. well what can you expect from a guy with no brakes ok. ahah .. carefull ma. I WAS HAPPY TO FINISH the whole damm thing, Those pictures of the Powerbar tent is the finishing line, i was given a small handpouch and a kiara booklet, no kiss from the girls after finishing, maybe too smelly kua. hahah, riders relaxing after the ride.
Exercise time: 7hrs 27min (the whole time i took to complete)
in Zone : 4hrs 43min (the time my heart rate was in 80% – 165bpm – 175bpm)
Limit : 154 / 124
Average Heart rate : 146 (i was surprised to see so low knowing that half of the journey my heart wanted to jump out)
Kcal/FAT: 4889 calories burned 40% of it is fats only ! ( the last Malakoff i only did 2500Calories this is CRAZY)
next time i would go faster with a better bike, I hope this event would be on again next year, as i would definitly participate it in my new BIKE ! no more Brake problems ok. So thats my report for the PCC Proton Presidential Ride last sunday on the 19th of November. Many friends has been made, many experience has been harnessed and many faces of despair for not completing the Ride was sseen. till next time RIDE HARD AND RIDE FAST ! My Passport of completion! my PRIDE ! Catch Ya later !
ps: I heard there was many people cheating on the trails of this ride, Using shortcuts just to finish the ride, well to those cheaters ! YOU DID NOT FINISH TO ME ! you guys are just posers who want to add a badge to your name, you have no pride. You know who you all are !
A place to have lunch is always a very hard desicion to make, not only lunch but dinner and breakfast as well if you are living in Malaysia, cause we are spoilt for choice, usually we are clueless of where to eat, but today me and lawrence headed down to Port Klang to have lunch at this famous venue called Cathay in Port Klang.
This place has all the nostalgic feeling with a hint of collisuem in Kuala Lumpur, this place really reminds me of war town colonial building, wait.. IT IS A WAR TORN COLONIAL building, infact this building was built in 1941, wow. its a great place i to feel the old times.
if you see the picture below, the was your utensils in the steel mug, HOW chinese, hehe, and that bottle on the right is actualy Barley, well i dont recommend the Barley rather bluntly tasteful, go for their Kopi O or Kopi Ice, they still serve their coffee in those olden coffee cups, its really classic i tell you, the other picture is the overall picture of the front of the store, the owner is sitting over the counter manning the whole restaurant. The menu is reasonably price, and the food is good
I know you must be thinking, Isaac says the food is good, BUT WHAT FOOD ? well to be honest, they serve a variety of chinese fry for example, Fried Rice, Wa Tan Hor, Kueh Teow, Mame Mee and many more, all reasonable price between RM3.50 to RM4, oh not only that they serve Chinese foodm they also have Western food which they are also famous for, BK ordered Fish and Chips and Chicken Chop, while i ordered beef steak, You will never guess the price of these items, its being priced at only RM7, very reasonable for a decent place like this. the picture on the left is my
Beef Steak, and the other two is Fish and Chicken, Oh i nearly forgot, when you order don’t say it in full, like when i told the uncle taking orders i told him i wanted the beef steak, he was stunned and stood there looking at me, as if i ordered in french, then Lawrence said , he wanted GU (hokkien for cow) now i know, i am in PORT KLANG and not some fancy restaurant like Frangipani. The uncle repeated the order in this order, ok u both ordered barley, GU, KWAE and HEE (cow, chicken and fish).
didn’t really expected much from the food, but then it came and it was really good, look at Lawrence tucking in his Fish and Chips. really superb, and did i mention that my Beef Steak melts in my mouth when i chew on the meat, wow.. the suculent taste of the beef was right and it was so juicy that this beef steak makes victoria station or any beef steak out there shameful, i polished off my beef steak within minutes, oh i forgot to mention that this place is Multiracial and HALAL, if you do want to come and have lunch please come early around 12, after 12.30 this place would be packed and you might have to wait for a seat.
Opening hours of cathay is around 11am to 3pm (i think) and the outside of the shop as it says Sin Kok Thye, but its actually known as Cathay.
Service: 4/5 being fast
Food: 4/5 Delicious
Oh i just had to take this picture, see whas wrong with this picture below, If you are coming down to Cathay for Lunch, do let me know I want to join ya for more BEEF ! oh man .. i am hungry after doing this review !
Hey guys i believe the Presidential Ride is over and here is the part where i blog about every detail that i have gone thru, this is the pre ride collection on the 17 which is the Friday of November. I’ve only managed to capture about 3 picture of that day cause i was in a hurry to go back. Never the less its still are great pictures
The organisers getting the name list out at a rainy 5pm in Boon Foo, it was really crowded and it was a real hype to see so many bikers around in Bikepro Boon Foo, not that his shop is short of any, but this is extremely alot, like around 20 to 30 bikers, usually it would be around 10 people at one time in his shop.
Thats Mac sitting down waiting for the line to clear so that he can get his number. Jason in blue polo talking to Mac as we are convoying to the PPC ride this Sunday, Arrangement is Key to success ! and the other person is Lawrence aka Jesus, and thats this bike on the left, the White Element, it has new grip tape being wrapped up. we call him the white night as he has this lapierre jersey and white tights, really sexy, ladies dont drool when you see him ok. The pics on the right is Wahid in Glasses and the rest i don’t know, as you can see there is a lot of people in the shop, i rushed off after collecting my kit, which consist of a T-Shirt, POWERBAR, Some cap Tiga Kaki Oinment, as they say, that oinment is the EPO of mountain biking, as two legs is not enough for the ride this Sunday, thats why they giving us the third leg. Alright .. i am going to conclude this Preride report and await for my POST report on the Presidential ride. Adios and Catch ya later.
I was on the net the other day and was searching for anything related to cycling and biking, its really great to see how cycling has evolve not only from being a transportation but to being a entertaintment contraption. People use Bikes to compete in nationals, people uses bike to do stunts for movies, but something that i stumbled upon really garner my attention to it, and it was from Youtube.com well there is more from where that came from, its really fun to see all those people carefree and cycling around town with their bikes
This thing that surprised me so much is called a critical mass! its does not mean that its a CRITICAL stage of MASS being piled up or anything but here is a definition of Critical Mass from critical-mass.info. It states that Critical Mass is a monthly bicycle ride to celebrate cycling and to assert cyclists’ right to the road. The idea started in San Francisco in September 1992 and quickly spread to cities all over the world. This site attempts to be the most complete guide to local Critical Mass rides around the globe. and its also done on every last friday of the month or something like that.
Critical Mass has a different flavor from city to city – there’s a big variety in size, respect of traffic laws (or lack thereof), interaction with motorists, and intervention by police. So if you want to know more about Critical Mass, you’ll really need to find out what your local ride is like. For those who must know more right now, here’s a link to Phoenix, Arizona CM, which I suppose is a "typical" CM ride, if there is such a thing.
Critical Mass has no leaders, and no central organization licenses rides. In every city that has a CM ride, some locals simply picked a date, time, and location for the ride and publicized it, and thus the ride was born. This is really great you know, i hope to do a critical mass in the roads of Kuala Lumpur one day, but i think sure get knock down by road bully or some matt rempit.
CM is an idea and an event, not an organization. You can’t write to "Critical Mass"
Some CM riders try to tie up traffic as much as possible and be otherwise confrontational with motorists. Such riders are missing the point about Critical Mass. CM is a celebration of cycling, not a war against motorists. CM is about asserting our right to the road, not denying others their right to the road. Those who want to play juvenile games are encouraged to stay at home instead, its also to promote the use of alternative transport rather than just motorised vehicle.
Any one wants to do one ? let me know. I might just start one on December ! Catch ya later
tomorrow me is doing this event called the PROTON PRESIDENTIAL RIDE. will update you guys if i have a chance to take photo and ride. So check out this site later around late Sunday or early Monday. Check ya out later !
ok ok .. i am not gay or anything, i just want to let the guys out there know that grooming is a essential part of a guys life in the 20th century. Grooming makes the man, and here is 14 tips that i follow. Women notice a successful man, but not all successful men get noticed. Why? They don’t know how to present themselves. Here are some tips that will help you look your best, no matter what your budget. This is just a guide, if you have more tips let me know ok. Catch ya later.
Whiten your teeth
The best way to whiten your teeth is to have them bleached at the dentist’s office. This procedure can run between $390 and $1,200 for both the upper and lower teeth. It should take between one and three hours. If you want to save money, you can use either a take-home dental kit (about $500), an over-the-counter kit (less than $120), or even an "express whitener," like Crest’s Whitestrips (which promise whiter teeth in seven or 14 days, depending on the package; prices range from $28 to $33, but results only last a year). If you want to go all out, you can also use toothpaste with whitening ingredients, which won’t actually make your teeth whiter, but will prevent further yellowing.
Get a tan (everytime i get)
The price of a tan can range from free to a ton of cash, and can take as long as a summer season or as short as a few minutes. The difference is whether you do it the old-fashioned way or in a salon. If you opt for a salon, expect to pay about a dollar per minute (and remember the potential danger of tanning beds). How long it takes and how often you need to visit depends on your skin pigment. Either way, remember to apply sunscreen and don’t forget to consult a doctor if you have any questions about safety. On the other hand, self-tanning lotions and spray tanning salons are other options.
Get a professional shave (ahha not bearding enough to do)
Men are always looking for a better shave. After all, a good shave means your woman will be more likely to get close. But nothing beats a barbershop shave, for two reasons. First, the old-school brush the barber uses to apply the cream actually lifts your facial hair, making the shave easier. Second, the straight razor gets closer than anything else on the market. True, you could do it yourself, but I wouldn’t experiment with a straight razor on my face. And who wouldn’t want to be pampered when it comes to shaving
Consider professional hair removal (ok this i dont follow)
Many of us have hair in the wrong places. But we have several options. Any area can be shaved (provided that you can reach it), but shaving is a short-term fix. If you’re attacking a small area like your ears or nostrils, the proper attachment on an electric razor is your best bet. For larger areas, you can use a chemical hair removal cream like Nair for Men, which can sting and cause a reaction, and isn’t permanent. You could also wax, which is pretty painful. Then there are the more permanent options: electrolysis and laser hair removal. Both cause mild discomfort but promise permanent removal at a price ranging from hundreds to thousands of dollars, depending on how many treatments are required.
Get a new pair of eyeglasses (I dont wear specs)
Glasses don’t have to be boring. A simple change can go a long way in giving you the attention you want. Try rimless glasses if you’re used to clunky specs. If you’re looking to draw attention to your glasses, try bigger frames, like thick, plastic, rectangular frames.
Get a good suit (oh my fav part, Gucci’s and Prada’s are my fav)
Two factors set a nice suit apart from the pack: the style (which changes, but you can’t go wrong with a single-breasted, solid color suit) and the material. For material, you’ll want to go with wool, which comes in four types: tweed, tropical, flannel, and worsted. Yes, there are other materials (like polyester), but wool is natural, wears well, breathes, and accomplishes a cool and timeless look.
Get a new pair of cufflinks
A suit says you’re a professional, but cufflinks say you’ve got style. Yes, they serve a practical purpose that you could also accomplish with a button, but this is your chance for a little bling. For less than $100, you can find a nice pair. But we’re talking jewelry here, so in theory, the sky is the limit. And no one says you can’t wear cufflinks while wearing a button-down shirt with flat-front pants .
Invest in a stylish tie (no bonus for guessing what designer i love again)
A tie is the only real choice a guy makes when he goes formal. Suits come in basic styles and colors, but ties let us know who the players are. Every guy should have at least one tie that he bought at a specialty shop. It’ll be your power tie, the one that works for you in every respect, from length, to shape, to color. Make it a silk tie and you’ve really got something.
Clean your watch thoroughly
This one is practically free and it goes a long way. You can clean your watch with a lint-free cloth and a toothpick to get rid of the dirt clogged in the case. If your watch is water-resistant, you can use warm water and mild soap. If your watch has a leather band, only clean the case.
Get a new jacket (This i dont do, cause malaysia too hot la)
It’s tempting to use the same jacket year after year. After all, if it keeps you warm, there’s no point in changing, right? Wrong. Invest in a quality jacket. Try cashmere if you’re looking to make a formal impression, or go with a cool leather jacket for a more casual look.
Tailor your clothes (I can recommend you a good place where i go)
You don’t need to tailor everything you own, but you should have a few items (and at least one suit complete with shirt) that fit you perfectly. Tailoring isn’t cheap, but some stores offer lifetime alterations, which could save you from having to buy a new suit.
Get a nice belt
Don’t make your belt the afterthought — it’s holding up your pants, so you want quality. But you should also consider style when choosing one. A black leather belt with a small silver buckle is good for just about all occasions. Aside from matching your belt to your wardrobe (including your shoes ), you need a good fitting belt. The right fit is a belt that fits snugly around your waist while set at the third hole.
Don’t look like pocket change
Different tips work for different guys, so you don’t have to do everything on this list. But it’s a good idea to try a few things and see what works best for you. If you get a compliment on something you try, you know you’ve hit the jackpot.
its been a slow day, didn’t have a very productive day at all, didnt do my run, Did not go for my swim, but definitly going for my biking later with Mac and Gang, wait.. i think its 5.30pm only, haha .. sorry.. Better go do a short 5K run, will be back tonight to finish this. Ciaoz
date 12-November-06, time 11.01am, venue Sheraton hotel, this is utterly crazy, people lining up like snake slithering side to side, this is sheraton hotel, I am blogging as I wait in turn, the snaking line is incredible I tell you, I will try to snap a picture for you guys. Sheraton Hotel has turned to a recruiting agency. Oh i did not mention that i was going for a interview, well yeah, i am trying my luck applying for the most lavish, yet well paid job in the world. Its a job with Singapore Airline, the amount of people coming in is non stop i tell you. Is Singapore airline so desireable? Is SIA a fortune 500 company? The line truly amazes me, and i am still looking at this queue that is applying for the job of steward and stewardess. Imagine Prada giving out freebies, how would the turn up be?
Wait up been told to go up to another queue, as the queue i am queueing up is for the girls, DARN IT.. the amount of girls here is incredible looks like all this are doll up for a big party, well some not. Some are just casual like casual monday. Oh i will remember that girl that wore the dolly white dress! oh so kawaii, not to mention the white capri, the oh so look at me red, too many to mention. its like Zoukout FEST but without the beach theme.
This information is for the girls, Guys here are just not hot. Sorry to disapoint you. Oh but if you are into faggots and gays by all means, But I bet if you go to sentosa there would be lots of hot able sweaty guys around. Girls are all pouring in, sorry this must be my 3rd time stating girls are hot.
After handing in my application I was told to wait for 1hour and 30min just to get my named called, how outrageous that can be? saw some funky fashion by the guys, saw this dude who was carrying a picnic basket for briefcase.
I am now looking at the requirment for girls. its really strict, do you see a girl leaning on a pillar? its the height requirement for girls, sad to see some girls pleading to get in, sigh. Doing nothing at the moment but waiting till my time is up, its just crazy!! feel like leaving already but the thought of getting the job is so close, getting a job must be really hard these days. No wonder there are so many hopefulls wanting a job in SIA.
Its already 1.35pm I am still here, to think that am I in a dream? i feel like I am applying for Singapore Idol, check the picture below for longer queues going into the ballroom. Today will be a record breaker if I were to go thru this whole process. I think overall waiting time would be five hours. I think they are moving the girls now because there are so many girls around, I am thinking about one thousand or more?
After waiting in the ballroom and being called out, I is group88, imagine this! each group is 10people, and I am 3quarter of the final batch. How many more to go, oh let alone the girls I think their batch surpasses 95 already. I wouldn’t want to be in the interviewers shoes. The amount of time and face you have to go thru.
Well my batch is done and awaiting my results, as I always tell the applicant. the results is always UNPREDICTABLE !! in my group there was 9 guys, i was so confident about this malay chap that i think he was 100% going in, and another guy who works for a bank and speaks well english, poised, everything, also I have seen people speaking with confidence, I have seen people who are fluent, I have seen very skilled people, and yet they got turned down! Why?? What’s is SIA looking for in a team player? Aren’t those atributes good enough? Is SIA looking for fresh/dumb/naive people? That’s up to them to answer. till today i am seeking this answer, (if you happen to be a recruiter of SIA I would like to know)
This is the final time I am trying to get a job as a flight attendant and be it so!! the money good or the perks is super. It the last thing I would do in my lifetime cause you people baffles me! Catch ya later.
