I'm not ready to make nice
I'm not ready to back down
I'm still mad as hell
and I don't have time to go round and round and round
It's too late to make it right
I probably wouldn't if I could!
Cause I'm mad as hell
Can't bring myself to do what it is you think I should
I hate everything about you
Why do I love you
You hate everything about me
Why do you love me
I know the truth now,
I know who you are,
And i don't love you anymore,
It never was and never will be,
You don't know how you've betrayed me,
And somehow you've got everybody fooled.
It never was and never will be,
You're not real and you can't save me,
And somehow now you're everybody's fool.
p.s dont' worry its not a song targetted at any particular person now, but it does bring back memories.

Honda S2000. This roadster is probably the only Honda right now that is FR (front engine and rear wheel drive). This particular pink version is the same version Suki used in the movie Too Fast Too Furious. Other than dressing up this car to become very girly, it has also has muscle under its hood. The 2.0 litre engine already produces a healthy 250 bhp but this particular pink car with an airbrush chick on its side has a supercharger bolted in to produce 360 bhp. Nothing like girly car that kicks ass on the road :p Ford Kuga, a new generation crossover/light SUV with an ultra efficient diesel engine that is not only clean but very fuel efficient. It handles and looks like a dream since its based on the Ford Fiesta platform
Fiat 500 Abarth. Fiat 500 is a car loosely based on the old Fiat 500. Abarth is a sports version of the Fiat group. Combine them both you get a classic looking car with modern sporty dynamics. It even has 5 stars NCAP rating.
Audi Rs6 Avant with a 5.2 litre V10 engine, a detuned version Lamborghini Galarado engine. What better way to shop at IKEA and carry small furniture in this baby :D.
Mazda Rx8, a personal favourite of mine with my favourite color :D. The same car Wolverine was driving in Xmen 2. It only has a 1.3 litre engine, but its a rotary/Wankel type. So it can produce 250 bhp at 9000rpm :D via its slick 6 speed manual transmission. Did I mention this is actually a 4 door car. Ok not 4 door but 2 door + 2. The rear door will open suicide style or with hinge on the opposite sides. Clever way to allow the rear passenger to enter the car :D.

25.. 25 to life.... Do I regret what happened? Not really..I do wish I could do it differently but that is just cheating now right.. Another year passed and another year awaits me.
This is Dr Dibah (I did not know she was a Dr until I read Ad's blog) she brought these really cute looking pink frosted cupcakes with the names of the guest that she got written on top.
They were so cute! Unlike other cupcakes I tried, these cupcakes had sweet frosting on top instead of just cream and butter frosting. YUM!!!. I enjoyed the night every much and it was nice meeting old and new friends. Thank god everything went well :D and there were no hiccups with the dinner :D.

This Taiwan made bumper could not accommodate the fan, so we had to make an alteration to it.

I was always a person who is very independent. I do my own things at my own pace using my own method. Somehow lately I was just so busy trying to catch up with everyone else and trying to blend in, I almost lost myself. I actually had to take a deep breath and hold back a while. Why would I want to try so hard to blend in or pretend to be someone I am not. Its like, screw them all. Like me as I am or just don’t like me at all. Its sounds strong right, but it’s the best thing for one self. However you can’t be yourself totally. In some situation you just have to bend a bit. I mean how you act in front of your parents is different how you act with your friends. Even with friends there are different way to mingle with different friends. You don’t want to lose your self but also you don’t want to end up being a complete fake. There is thin line that separates them both.
A song from Camp Rock. I like it, its has a good message of being proud of oneself

Hmm while fueling up today on my drive to Perak, I noticed the fuel price went lower again, which is good news. The bad news is even though petrol prices are down, none of the goods that went on a price hike, lowered their price too.
We sent my mother to Sudan via Emirates airline at KLIA. She will be staying with my dad for a month in Sudan. Which means just us 5 siblings in the house for the whole month. The irony is today is the exact same date my mother left us when she performed Haj last year. Strange though I feel sadder now and felt even more worried than I did last year. Heck I been worried and paranoid all week long. God knows where I got the strength to drive all day today. I been driving for about 8 hours today, from Kajang to UiTM Seri Iskandar Perak and back and then Kajang to KLIA and back. I was flooring our MPV to Perak and lucky enough we did not get a ticket during a roadblock that was held a few kilometers before the Tapah Rest area. Funny enough the people who were driving fast on the highway were those driving MPVs with big engines (Naza Ria, Estima, Alphard, Oddysey. etc). The big capacity engine in these vehicles, makes driving feeling very relaxed at 130km/h.
Hmm almost end of the year already, 3rd semester is over. What have I accomplished? Bad dreams began to appear, getting sick more often, feeling paranoa more often....

This car sits really low on the ground. I mean the driver head rest is as tall as my side mirror. The car is remarkably light. Its lighter than my Perodua Viva. That is why it needs only a 1.8 liter engine to drive it.

Cordin Bleu (Bleu, that is brand of mineral water right? I wonder if his family gets a share of the profit?). This blend (I make it sound like a expensive coffee drink :D) of Jamaican and Italian ancestry has back ground in balet and jazz. His exotic looks has landed him gigs in modelling as a child and a few roles in TV. He even starts in Disney TV movie about a boxer who likes to double dutched. It seems Disney love to break the stereotypical roles or cliques status quo in all of their movie. Anyways I just cannot get over his hair. Its like their and is in my way. I mean what if he shaved it off. Heaven forbid he will be like that guy who won second place in the first American Idol after Kelly Clarkson. He shaved it off and then soon disappeared from the world. I wonder if its his real hair or does its a weave (a weave is hair that is sewn to your original hair that has been corn roll, corn roll is a method where African people tie their hair to the scalp)

Someone yanked, pulled or pry the screwed spoiler off my car's bonnet while the car was parked outside of my house. Why this car for goodness sake.. and the spoiler was already in a bad condition. Its going to be hell to find the spare part. I check one half cut shop and they have a spoiler with 2 extra fins that with add 2 extra hole to my bonnet and it cost be a bloody RM 250.....
The front bumper is cracked and is just waiting too fall down. A new bumper cost almost RM 700 and not including installation. These are not your clip on bumpers like on the Protons and Perodua. The are solid metal covered with plastic that are screwed to the body just like those old Proton Saga in the early 80s. Sigh.. these are the challenge of owning an old car that is German and is not local...

- You are lucky, you are still a student. Student life is easy, everything is taken care off.
Oooh I absolutely love to dread this statement from those who are working. I am just wondering which level of education are they talking about? Secondary, diploma and degree have pretty much the same concept. Go to class, there is a person in front of you giving you lessons, you do homework and then you take a test. Simple life really and I do agree with that. When else can spend half of your day hanging out with your friends. Maybe these people are saying this type of student life. However, have they tasted post graduate school A.K.A MSc and PhD ? This is radically different from what we are used before. No more cramming 30 in a class, instead you have very small pupils in a class unless the class in combined with Phd, MSc students from many courses. I was the only student in my class in first semester. Can you imagine just you and the professor head on. Something that will permanently etched in my mind. What about homework, well there is none. Lucky? not really, what you do have is plenty of hemorrhaging causing journals to be read, presentations to be done and experiments to be performed. Speaking of experiments, usually they will fail at the first, second, third, fourth and fifth time. So you end up trying and trying it until you get it. Holiday? What holiday? there is no holiday during your post grad studies. There is sneaking out or lying to your advisor but there is no holiday per say. Yes I agree working life is stressful, all the stories I hear from my working friends about their problem with their bosses, clients and colleagues really scare me. Yup I hear all these stories while riding their nice cars, eating with them a really nice restaurants, fooling around with their PDAs and Ipods, and looking at the nice photos they took during their trip to Australia. I be happy if I get to go to another state other than my kampung.
Student life less stressful than working life? Only if you are doing secondary school, diploma or degree. Not MSc or PhD. I think many of those who graduated would resist beating the life out of a person who asked do you want to do your MSc or PhD again....
- You are lucky to be living with your parents. Free food, nice bed, free utilities, freshly wash clothes. That is the good life.
Yah sure everything is nice but you must remember you live with your parents. Unless your parents are hippies and let you roam around as you wish. Its not exactly something you want to do forever. I have strict parents. My mother would freak if we don't return by sundown. My dad says as long as we are his children, whether we are 2, 12, 22, or 42, he will always be right and we would always be wrong. My mother loves to ask about my friends. Who are they, their names, where are they from, what does their parents do for a living. The best question would probably comes after she ask how old they are. If they are 28 and above her next question would be "are they married" if I said no, she would ask "why are they not married yet?".......... I cringe at that question which I don't even asked to people, which I feel is very very personal. So tired of having to deal with all the cars at my house. 5 cars in total, for me to take care off. I can't get my brother to take care of it because my mother feels he is too young to take care of it but she lets him drive it everywhere. Yup the little shit head can get away with murder I bet once he shows his sad puppy face to my mother.
Well all type of torture has to end someday. My master will end soon and I do hope I get a job far far far far away from home. Heck I finally be able to throw a makan2 and invite my friends over for a chance. Just me and my own baggage to take care off..
