Fadli pergi ke TAWAU...



Well on saturday morning at about 4.30 am, me and imran headed to KLIA for our 7.30am flight to Tawau. Im sure some of u wondering y TAWAU? of all places.. ini kata KERJA TAK MASUK AKAL... accompanying my friend to attend a wedding reception.Then we have to rush back to KL the next day for our officemate's wedding. We arrived in tawau in about 10.30am. The bride's brother already tunggu kitaorang. Oh... me were accompanied by this couple (which the wife is a close friend of the bride and relative from the bridegroom's side) It took us about 45 mins from the airport to the small town. We arrived at the Hotel Heritage, unfortunately we can't check in till its 1pm, so we headed to this so callled 'pasar' nearby that sells the kain batik indonesia and others barang perhiasan and even pearls (which is so expensive!). Had murtabak jawa after having sum trouble finding and deciding what food to eat.

Finally back to the hotel and straight head to bed. TIDO la aper lagi. After a couple of hours of sleep, bangun and head to the bride's house. Ouh.. the bride is imran's bestfriend and goes by the name of Kak Su. We managed to hangout at her house only bout 15 mins before we had to leave (cuz the pengantin lelaki ader kot). So sampai di hotel. We headed to the pantai (its more likely like teluk) thanks to the info from the pengantin perempuan. So lepak sambil tengok pemandangan tepi pantai sambil menghirup angin sepoi - sepoi bahasa. Got back to the hotel and rest before getting ready for the ceremony.

The wedding starts at 7ish.. awal for a wedding reception. The ceremony went well and ends at 9.30pm. Giler awal... oh well took the photos with the pengantins and we head back to the hotel. Ingat nak bersiar - siar at this dead town but instead both of us end up zzzzz..

Its 6.45am, my alarm from my hp kept on buzzing. Tho i have told the front desk to wake us up by the hour of 7. Im headed to the shower while i was busy checking the channels from the TV. Our flights from AirAsia gonna departure at 10.30am so its better to get ready early. Before we check-out, makan breakfast, then Imran got a call from the pengantin perempuan saying that she's gonna pick us up. So end up lepaking in the room till 9.00am. Rupa - rupanya going back together with the rombongan lelaki, they also balik with same flight as us naik AirAsia.

We arrived a bit late for the check-in, managed got in the flight. Text messaged Nelli to be standby at KL Sentral. We decided to take ERL straight to the center of KL. Senang nak rush to Yamin's wedding at Dewan Perdana Felda. So to cut the story short, we arrived at KLIA at about almost to 1pm. Rushed to the ERL booth to get the tickets. The journey was took 28 mins. Arrived at the KL Sentral and Nelli waited for us in the car. Called Yamin to check wether the reception still ader orang tak.. and he said that only the close relatives that's still at the the dewan. We decided to drop by as to congratulates to him and his wife. Makan - makan, then hantar Imran balik rumah as i also gone straight home. So till my next tak MASUK AKAL adventure. chiow...

Thanks to the savings and the freelancing werk that im duing now. Hope more to come. Then boleh beli powerbook.. muhahhhhahahahahahah

Oh well.. i should be back to werk. there's annual report cover and layout to propose for tomorrow's presentation.


Song For A Friend - Jason Mraz

Well you’re magic he said but don’t let it all go to your head
Well I bet if you all had it all figured out then you’d never get out of bed
No doubt of all the things that I’ve read what he wrote me
Is now sounding like the man I was hoping to be
I keep keeping it real cause it keeps getting easier indeed

He’s the reason that I’m laughing
Even if there’s no one else
He said you’ve got to love yourself

He said you shouldn’t mumble when you speak
But keep your tongue up in your cheek
And if you stumble onto something better
Remember that it’s humble that you seek
And you’ve got all the skill you need; individuality
You’ve got something. Call it gumption.
Call it anything you want

Because when you play the fool now
You’re only fooling everyone else
You’re learning to love yourself.

There’s no price to pay when you give what you take.
That’s why it’s easy to thank you.

Let’s say take a break and get back to the old garage.
Life’s too short anyway but at least it’s better than average.
As long as you got me and I got you know we got a lot to go around
I’ll be your friend you’re other brother
Another love to calm and comfort you.

And I’ll keep reminding if it’s the only thing I ever do.
I will always love you.

Climb up over the top.
Survey the state of the soul.
You’ve got to find out for yourself whether or not you’re truly trying.
Why not give it a shot?
Shake it. Take control and inevitably wind up
Finding for yourself all the strengths you have inside still rising.

an evening at artseni, STARHILL




Last Sunday was a big day for my my god-brother Phillip Wong, as he successfully launched his own gallery, 'artseni' at Starhill Gallery. The launch was officiated by YB Dato' Seri Ong Ka Ting the Minister of Housing Development.

But before that, I was engaged with office occasion playing bowling games at Tropicana Clubhouse. It was the final game for this season. It was a good game tho, but i didnt win annything. Just merely participating.

Overall i was pleased to know that all his hardwork and passion in art paid of with huge turnout at the launching (for an art galllery launching). Wishing all the best to him and the gallery. To know more about artseni, log on to www.artseni.com.

Believe Your Ears



Call it astonishing. Unbelievable. Impossible, even. Then pick it up and hold it in your hand. Take in the brilliant color display. Run your thumb around the Click Wheel. Put on the earbuds and turn up your music. That’s when everything becomes clear: It’s an iPod.

It holds up to three days’ worth of music. It plays for up to 14 hours between battery charges.(1) It displays the color album art for the song you’re listening to right now. It carries your photos, podcasts and audiobooks. It syncs seamlessly with iTunes. It connects to a host of iPod accessories. Simply put, iPod nano is 100-percent iPod. And then some.
(text taken from www.apple.com. all rights reserved.)

Imagine i was thinking of getting myself with iPod 20G and first. Then comes iPod nano that comes in 2G and 4G. Boy, im gonna the 'nano' instead! With the new function as lock and its slimmer and smaller than the iPod. Turn on beb! Callled a good friend at apple malaysia about this new gadget and he says that the shipment of stocks are on their way. HUHUHUHUHU This kewl.. ohh.. by the way i'm planning to get the 2G ones that cost about RM1089 here in Malaysia. Hmm.. i wonder how much it is in Singapore. Oh well... watever it is ... i am so gonna get this stuff!

For more info on it just go to www.apple.com.. till then cheers!
