I didn't gamble during this CNY

Guess what? After the CNY was over, I just realised that I did not play a game of either mahjong or any kind of card game. The only mahjong game I played was with my computer. May be part of the reason was unable to find suitable mahjong 'kaki', timing for the session and early start work. But it is a good thing since I do not have to lose my angpow money. Hehe.

How about you? Winning a lot or at the losing end? Addiction to gambling is not good. There are all sort of gambling tools which include the betting game too. Of course the football betting is another addiction to many but not to me. Although sometime my mum would ask me whether I'm actually bet on the soccer game since she realised that I like to watch soccer match live through the TV during the weekend. Watching and betting is two different thing. I like to watch my favourite team playing soccer but I don't like to bet.

Again, do not addicted to gambling.

Election is coming soon!

Malaysian parliment was dissolved on the 13th Feb, the 7th day of the Chinese New Year and coming this Sunday 24th Feb, it will be the day for candidates nomination. Each day newspapers without fail are fully covered by the election-related news. These few days has been intense with potential candidates jostling for seats plus a few sensational news like DAP's Fong Po Kuan declining to contest in the general election due to the internal bickering.

As for me, this will be my 2nd time going for polling. I had my 1st polling experience in 2004. I still remembered on that day, i went to the polling center which is just a 5 minute walk from my house together with my parent and sister. Of course, just before the entrance, various parties workers were there trying to get your support to vote for their respective candidates.

The whole polling process just took a few minutes and after that, we walked home together to have our lunch. I guess this year will be the same. Happy election!

Another fatal gun shooting at US university

After the bloody Virginia Tech gun shoot incident, another fatal gun shooting case happened at Northern Illinios University resulting 6 persons dead.

Yahoo News: 6 dead in N. Illinois U. hall shooting
CNN News: 6 shot dead, including gunman, at Northern Illinois University

This is also the fourth shooting case in US schools within this week.

I think the US government really need to seriously consider the total firearm bans in the country to avoid such incidents to happen in the future.

May Year of RAT brings you lots of laughter, love and optimism.

Pre-CNY 2008

There will be another few more hours before the CNY 2008 starts. Today is an off day declared by the management.

Taking advantage of being an off day today, I went to the Tesco with my mum to do some last minute CNY groceries shopping buying some canned drinks and mandarin orange. Well, the last day at Tesco offers mandarin orange at the price of RM4.88 and RM5.88 a box. Such as bargain.

In the afternoon, I washed my car and changed the road tax sticker.

Then when my brother and nephews came, we start our reunion dinner, a pre-event before CNY. Very full now.

Waiting for CNY and the continuous loud firecrackers sound to come. Happy Chinese New Year 2008. Gong Xi Fatt Chai! Gong Xi Gong Xi!
