PhotoHunt: Metal

When I saw this week's theme, I was like having this deja vu..."Hmm...haven't I done this before?". After going through my previous entries, indeed it is a repeated theme.

No problem though, as I have many pictures that can be used for this week's theme. After a long (yeah...long) consideration, I decided to use these:

This is the bronze metal statue of Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy at Kek Lok Si Temple, Penang, Malaysia. I took this picture a year ago when they were still constructing the pillars around her. I am sure the whole structure is completed by now.

I love this statue. She looked so calm and compassionate...

Pug Attack

Don't let his big puppy eyes deceive you. When he attacks, he shows no mercy!!!

Kidding la... Axel is a very gentle pug. He just turns violent on his bear bear only. Talking about that, I have to say IKEA's teddy bear is really durable!

Good to be busy

Work been terribly busy lately until I do not have much to say in my blog. Well, sometimes I did feel like venting about it... but then I thought it would be more prudent to leave work at work and not constantly thinking about it at home. Furthermore, never know who'll be tuning in... so wouldn't want to get myself in a sticky situation.

Anyhow looking at the positive side (always must remind myself to be positive!), being busy is a good thing. When there are piles of stuff on your desk for you to clear, that is a sign that you are still very needed by the company. When there are like thousands (well, that's how it felt like to me!!) of projects waiting for your attention, that shows that there are still businesses for the company. On top of that when you are busy, time just fly you by and before you know it, it's time for your bonus!!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee....

See, it is good to be busy.

PhotoHunt: Reflection

These are pictures taken inside a huge kaleidoscope at Singapore Science Center. As we all know, the patterns that we see in a kaleidoscope came from multiple reflections generated from mirrors inside it.

This one is huge enough for a small person to crawl in, but I don't think you are allow to do that. ;-p

Pretty right?

When the applause start

This is Fish Leong singing "Zhang Shen Xiang Qi" which through my banana translation means "When the applause start". This song was originally sung by Foong Fei Fei, but being a Fish Leong's fan, I of course love this version more.

Take tissue before watching the video hoh...

掌聲響起 (zhang shen xiang qi) pinyin lyrics

Gu du zhan zai zhe wu tai
ting dao zhang shen xiang qi lai
wo de xing zhung you wu xian gan kai

duo shao qing chun bu zai
duo shao qing huai yi geng gai
wo hai yong you ni de ai

hao xiang chu chi de wu tai
ting dao di yi shen he chai
wo de yen lei ren bu zhu tiao xia lai

jing guo duo shao shi bai
jing guo duo shao deng dai
gao shu zhi ji yao ren nai

掌聲響起來 我心更明白
zhang shen xiang qi lai, wo xing geng ming bai
ni de ai jiang yu wo yong zai
掌聲響起來 我心更明白
zhang shen xiang qi lai, wo xing geng ming bai
ge shen jiao hui ni wo de ai

JW will line up...

Yesterday about noon time, as I was on my way to the toilet, I decided to stop by the pantry and flip through the newspapers to see whether there's anything interesting.

As I flipped through Malay Mail, I came across this page:

Something in there caught my eyes and I'm telling you, it ain't the cakes! I saw JW in the picture queueing up for free cakes! I found that to be funny as I don't have many friends who appeared in newspapers before.

So I took a snapshot of the page and MMS'ed her with the message: "U r in today's Malay Mail".

And here's her reply: "Die. During office hour some more".

Later on MSN, I found out that she queued 3 hours for the cakes!

I think the headline should be changed to "JW will line up - but only for food, and if it's free".

PhotoHunt: Together

It's been a while since I last participated in the weekly PhotoHunt, but here I am again. I missed all the fun!!

This week's theme is "Together". When people or things come together, they can form a force to reckon with.

In my entry, you can see what happens when balloons come together.

Faraway (千里之外)

Qian Li Zhi Wai (千里之外) Pinyin lyrics:
by Jay Chou & Fei Yu Ching

屋簷如懸崖 風鈴如滄海 我等燕歸來
Wu yan ru xuan yai,feng ling ru cang hai,wo deng yan gui lai
時間被安排 演一場意外 你悄然走開
Shi jian bei an pai, yan yi chang yi wai, ni qiao ran zou kai

故事在城外 濃霧散不開 看不清對白
Gu shi zai cheng wai, nong wu shan bu kai, kan bu qing dui bai
你聽不出來 風聲不存在 是我在感慨
Ni ting bu chu lai, feng sheng bu cun zai, shi wo zai gan kai

夢醒來 是誰在窗臺 把結局打開
Meng xing lai, shi shui zai chuang tai, ba jie ju da kai
那薄如蟬翼的未來 經不起誰來拆
Na ba ru chan yi de wei lai, jing bu qi shei lai zhai

我送你離開 千里之外 你無聲黑白
Wo song ni li kai, qian li zhi wai, ni wu sheng hei bai
沈默年代 或許不該 太遙遠的相愛
Chen mo nian dai, huo xu bu gai, tai yao yuan de xiang ai
我送你離開 天涯之外 你是否還在
Wo song ni li kai, tian yai zhi wai, ni shi fou hai zai
琴聲何來 生死難猜 用一生 去等待
Qing sheng he lai, sheng si nan cai, yong yi sheng, qu deng dai

一身琉璃白 透明著塵埃 你無瑕的愛
Yi shen liu li bai, tou ming zhe chen ai, ni wu xia de ai
你從雨中來 詩化了悲哀 我淋濕現在
Ni chong yu zhong lai, shi hua le bei ai, wo lin shi xian zai

芙蓉水面采 船行影猶在 你卻不回來
Fu rong shui mian cai, chuan xing ying you zai, ni que bu hui lai
被歲月覆蓋 你說的花開 過去成空白
Bei sui yue fu gai, ni shuo de hua kai, guo qu cheng kong bai

夢醒來 是誰在窗臺 把結局打開
Meng xing lai, shi shui zai chuang tai, ba jie ju da kai
那薄如蟬翼的未來 經不起誰來拆
Na ba ru chan yi de wei lai, jing bu qi shui lai zhai

Repeat Chorus 2x
