rant of da day: this world... doesn't work in mysterious way.

the world of computers.... is as simple as it gets.
Binary. 1's/ 0's. true/false. yes/no.
when you ask me on instruction/ help. bear this in mind.
follow the damn instructions.
the problem issn't gonna go away, if you pretend it is not there. Turn off the computer, go to sleep, when you wake up. the problem will still be there. there's nothing mysterious.
So.... if you choose not to follow the steps. you know it's gonna to piss me off further when you keep asking for help.
so there you have it.

i know. i know. i'm supposed to be patient.. etc

yeah. just needed to get that off.
need sleep.

Live match at highbury!

Live match at highbury!
Delayed entry. Watched arsenal vs sheffield united at highbury. Just had to do it despite the 51 pounds tix. 1-1 result. Loved the way the fans shouted at the ref. Complete sentences and in proper english. "oh referee, he's wasting time!" "referee is a w@nker!"

laphroaig + evian + tall drinking glass (starbucks)


first step into the world of single malt whiskys.

managed to digout a bottle of evian 2001.
my starbucks doubleshot glass (tall glass for "nosing")

it was pretty fun. could nose some of the described scents. as well as taste, the peaty , smoky.

dummy's guide: from laphroaig's website.
Below are the 4 easy steps to unleashing and enjoying Laphroaig's full potential.

Step 1
Pour yourself a full measure of Scotland's most richly flavoured malts. Admire the full golden amber colour with its slightly greenish tone.

Step 2
Nose the glass (adding just a drop of water to release the full potential) and savour the pungent earthy aroma. Admire the heavy peaty smokiness and detect the delicate heathery perfume.

Step 3
Really taste the whisky - roll it around on your tongue and allow it to impress your palate. Take time to experience its full rich character and peaty flavour.

Step 4
Contemplate it, savour it, but never rush it - appreciate the lingering and unique mellow finish of the true single malt Scotch whisky for the connoisseur.

home news... interesting stuff, when i'm away.

ST: Lively Exchanges

well.... "start a party". issn't that... from yonder years ago... the catherine lim incident. here we go again. put the turntable needle back to start and *listen* (again!)

here i go ranting again.

keep this up... it's gonna all blow up.
respect and admiration is one thing; how this country is run, can't be based on past records and nothing else.
the young un's will be asking, what can you do in the future. not some communist fighting stories repeated for 30-40 years.

slowly.... release first the thumbs.... oh yes... now loosen the 2nd finger. right... breathe... now the 3rd finger.. NO! No! don't put the 2nd finger back. relax.... you can do it.....

"go with grace" ahmem.
