I do not need a car, a house, a phone and i do not need to find or buy my own foods.
I also do not need more than 2 sets of clothing.
I do not need to be wary about fashion, about the latest gadget, about fancy cars or watches.
If someone ask me what do i like about working offshore, my answer would be, because of the things mention above.
It suits me just fine. Because deeply inside, i do not care about those stuff..Or at least not just yet.
And that make me a boring person, i guess. Hell, i dont even care if i am.
But stab me, and i will definitely bleed, red.

Follow your dream with a plan and then act. Successful people chase their dreams. It is the mind and the brain, that work together to decide the path to be followed.
At times we experiment and then eventually start developing interest in a subject. A person might feel contented after helping the poor, or after getting into a spiritual life.
Compromising on your passion is nothing but choosing the second option. When you have only one life to fulfill your dream, to discover the dormant quality within you, then why compromise on your dreams? Visualize the dream and decide the course of path. After all you deserve it.

Aku tengok jam tangan, yang aku pakai di tangan kanan ketika itu.
"Baru pukul 3petang!"
Selalunye time macam ni memang takkan jam. Jalan selalu clear...
Aku berfikiran positif. Barangkali ade eksiden....eh, tak positif langsung. Barangkali ade orang bagi nescafe free dekat tepi roundabout tu. Aku mula looking foward untuk sampai ke line depan.
Sedikit demi sedikit kereta semua bergerak. Dari jauh aku dapat confirm, memang takde sape bagi nescafe free. Aku kembali frust. Telur sudah di hujung tanduk...aku teruskan kemutan.
Orang ramai pun mula frust, ade yang mula hon, menjerit, maki hamun dan sebagainya. Aku tidak turut serta. Aku kan pemandu berhemah.
Aku lihat orang ramai mula ciluk-menciluk. Motor, kereta, lori, semua pun turut menciluk. Aku turut serta. (Di hujung tanduk kot....)
Sesampai nye aku di depan roundabout, aku menjeguk keluar tingkap mencari punca angkara jam ni.
Ade kereta yang seakan akan-tak berani drive in ke roundabout.
Aku tengok betul-betul..
"CIS..PATUTLA...AWEK YANG DRIVE!"

I was on a coffee break when one of my colleagues started to complain about his life. He had a pretty bad day and he sure knew how to elaborate the details.
He started talking about his problems - his bad health, his overdue mortgage, his premature balding, his belated dog and so on. You get the picture.
In the end of the miserable complains he said “Well…what can WE do? That’s the reality of life. We can’t help it can we? Life’s sucks!”
“Hold on a sec…” I thought.
Somehow that is his reality, and his life turns out to be as sucks as he has always imagined it would be.
He used to think that Apek Tilam is a very bad guy, that Apek Tilam is going to take him away from Tok Mi’s house. (Apek Tilam is the guy who sells tilam from his truck or the guy who buys old news paper from us)
It was not until he started crying every time “Apek Tilam in-da-house”, that we decided to change Apek Tilam’s profile. We convinced my nephew that Apek Tilam has changed; that he went to school, and he has becomes a good man …plus he loves kids too! So now my nephew is not afraid of Apek Tilam anymore. His believes has changed and so does his reality.
You will come to know this type of people when you hear them saying things like
“People WILL believe whatever they WANT to believe”

Nike 5 T3 FS - Yellow and Black
Nike CTR 360
This is a latest model from nike, i think. It focuses on passing accuracy and ball control. But the one in the picture is a football boot, not exactly what i wanted. Anyway, both of these shoes are out of stock for size 9, which is my size. Freak!
p/s: Hopefully i can find my size in Mid Valley tomorrow. If i find one, then I could buy it and put it on top of my TV in Labuan as decoration..because *umph, who am I kidding, I dont have time for all these!

Fred boards a jumbo jet in Bangkok at 11.30pm. The jet seats 420 people and it weighs as much as a small apartment block.
For the next 14 hours Fred travels at over 800 kilometres an hour. Less than a foot from his nose the air temperature is minus 55 degrees Celsius and the wind is blowing at hurricane strength.
Meanwhile the stewardess serves him dinner - steak from Argentina, wine from Australia, butter from Ireland, cheese from New Zealand, coffee from Columbia.
At the press of a button blankets and pillows are delivered. Fred buys duty free watches for the kids without even leaving his seat. During dessert he watches the latest Hollywood movies.
He takes a nap. For breakfast, it's croissants and fruit.
And all this in economy class!
At five am London time, in the middle of a hailstorm with 10 metres visibility, he touches down on the other side of the world - two minutes ahead of schedule.
Fred's wife collects him at the airport ... "How was your flight?"
And Fred says, "The movie was terrible!"
Don't we take so much for granted? We live in an amazing world!
We are so fortunate to eat food we didn't have to grow and fish we didn't catch, to drive in cars that we didn't have to invent, across bridges we didn't have to build.
And any flight that lands safely is a good flight!
"What really matters is how good you are to your friends how good you are in the community, and how good a person you are. That's the real value in life", Sussie Tompkins Buell - Founder of Esprit.

Orang yang berjaya adalah mereka yang suka membaca. Berapa banyak anda perlu membaca?
Baca sekurang-kurangnya 1 jam setiap hari. Sebaiknya membaca buku ilmiah yang berkaitan dengan bidang anda dan juga bahan-bahan yang boleh membangunkan nilai diri anda sendiri (Bukan baca novel cinta)
Sekiranya anda membaca 1 jam sehari, secara purata, anda akan menghabis satu buku setiap minggu. Sekiranya anda membaca 1 buku seminggu, anda akan dapat menghabiskan 4 buku sebulan. Ini bererti dalam masa setahun anda akan menghabiskan 48 buah buku. Sekiranya anda meneruskan selama 3 tahun, anda akan membaca 144 buah buku.
Tahukah anda bahawa kebanyakan pakar-pakar industri yang berjaya danmencapai tahap jutawan telah membaca >100 buah buku yang berkenaan bidangmasing-masing?
Semuanya bermula dengan hanya membaca 1 jam sehari, dan anda akan menjadi pakar industri anda dalam masa 3 tahun dari sekarang!
On the other hand, jangan pula tidak baca buku-buku lain… oleh kerana kadang2, idea dan strategi dapat di ambil dari industri lain yang anda boleh aplikasikan kepada industri anda!
In fact it is the responsibility of an individual to inculcate the discipline of reading within them after finishing school. One’s mind should be open to grab knowledge because knowledge is that wealth an individual can acquire and store in his brain where no thief can come and touch it.
Successful people have got successful vocabulary and they ensure that reading a book on 'Self Improvement' for half an hour everyday is itself inspiring as it sets the spiritual tone for the rest of the day and it pays to increase one's word power by not only keeping the channels of communication open but to also express more completely as individuals.
I hope each one of us becomes voracious readers. A book a month will keep you even. It takes effort, but it's worth it. It takes regular, persistent reading and studying for one to improve and climb the ladder of success. The journey is indeed rewarding and also a voyage of discovery. The daily practice of reading in our chosen field will make us one of the best informed people in our field. So, let's decide and make reading as our resolution. A resolution that may require a lifestyle change from being better to the best.

"Dude, what should you do today, to make your life better the next day?"
I've actually been here for more than a week now, and i'm still in a standby mode. Meaning, i am free, but can't really be certain, because they can call me anytime to go to the rig.
Boring story, i know.
So while i was slacking my ass off in the hotel, i spent many hours watching TV. (Yes, i think watching TV will make a better tomorrow...WTHijklmn..)
And i wathced a lot of NatGeo and Discovery channel..because i'm generally a boring good looking person that like to watch boring stuff like "naked sience" etc..
Anyway, the one i watched this morning is about "Earth2". Basically they found a planet somewhere out there that is similar to earth. A planet that human kind can live on.
And the plan is, to send people out there to continue the human kind survival! You know, incase of armegeddon ...or 2012 (huekk ptuihh!)
"Send people to Earth 2!? Waa OOOo..." i clapped..
So they (you know who "they" are right? NASA, the Russian etc...) have been doing tonnes of research about this...and here are some of those are about:
1- It will take about 200 years to reach Earth2.
2- The radiation will kill the astronauts in 10 hours.
3- The absence of gravity will deteriorate human muscles and boness
4- dan banyak lagi...
Of course many questions arises...
1-How can we create a human that can live up to 200 years?
2- How can they survive the radiations?
.....again, genetical engineering! they found out that cockroaches have an extremely good resistance to radiation..and so they want to take this gene and put into the humans!
They made one experiment of taking the "glowing in the dark" genes from jelly fish, and put it into a pregnant rat. The resut? well...glow in the dark rats were born...(dude i really saw them! they're real huh..)
3- How can they survive the absences of gravity?
....Do you know that we need gravity to live? Why?
The thing is, we are design to live in gravity. Experiment shows that without gravity, every massess in a human body will shrink and eventually disappear. A russian astronaut was in the space for a year, he came back home (to earth) and he cant even stand for days! his muscle and boness were deteriorated really bad.
Well...good luck guys!!!! (ending the story just like that)
(i'm hearing that voice again...)
"Dude! can't you see you are wasting your time?! and wasting others who's reading this sh*t?"
"Yes...i can really see that" T_T
You know what those mean?
Yes, it means that they are right!
Ok, bye now!
p/s: Three left does make a right.
