The End of a Decade

A lot has changed in these 10 years... Phones didnt have colour screens, Facebook wasnt created, I never touched my veggies, I only had a fraction of friends compared to today, Lady Gaga was still in school, and a whole lot of other things... 10 years is a whole lot of time for lots of stuff to happen. Good stuff, bad stuff, controversies, historical and record breaking feats. There's so many of them. Here are just a teeny few picks...

 Usain Bolt breaks the 100M sprint record, twice.

Datuk Lee Chong Wei, Malaysia's first silver medalist in Olympics Badminton

Wikipedia was made

 Michael Joseph Jackson passed away June 25th

 Malaysia's first astronaut, Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor 


Michael Schumacher wins a record 7 Formula 1 Driver's Championships

Third generation gaming consoles Nintendo Wii, Playstation and Xbox 360 released

It's just 4 hours 20 minutes away. It's been a roller coaster ride of a year for me (dont get me started on the decade). New friendships, new enemy (stressing only ONE person, *hint hint 4sc2*) a fair share of scandals and controversies, one of which I was on the receiving end (ouch), reaching new highs, hitting new lows, elations and heartbreaks, you name, it I've had it this 2009. But lets not look back on the bitter but savour the sweet, dont be afraid of what's ahead but be confident of overcoming them (SPM!!!! AIIIIYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). Closing off Life in The Fast Lane for 2009, Happy New Year (and Decade) everyone!!!

I Should Learn to Take More Photos....

A big shout-out to Chuah for successfully organising his first major outing with us, Hou Zhen, Fatin, mua, Miss Hidayah (our English teacher, damn sporting wei can join us) and her fiance. For that, I say....


Wokay, firstly we went bowling; Me, Chuah and Hou Zhen vs. Miss Hidayah, her fiance (his nickname on the screen was Aiye). We played 2 rounds, we won the first (our combined 274 beat their 170-180 something), but we lost the second reealllly badly (162 vs 290-300 something.. OUCH). I bowled 92 in my first game (YAY PERSONAL BEST!) but only 43 in the second (yay personal worst.. buhuhuhuhuu). I noticed something cute about my scores in both games....

7-7-7 (and HZ's 0-0-6-0-0-6)

P.S Houey, when you look at it, your score is actually 0-6-10 (spare)-6, so its not too bad oso la yea? =)

 and 1-0-0-0-1 (nguaaaaaaa T.T)

Ahh... we had barrels of fun anyways.Then we went for lunch at Miss-U-Cafe. 6 of us crammed in Aiye's Satria and surprisingly we all could fit inside! Listen people! Dont buy Hondas or BMWs! Get a Satria and carpool!!! So then we arrived and ordered our food. Nasi lemak for RM7?!?!?! *faint* Even fried rice was nearing 5-6 ringgit. Other foods and drinks seem reasonable lor. Quite a number of dishes containing cheese. Cheesey chicken chop, fried rice with cheese, cheese here there everywhere. Later we thought of go-karting, but then the place wasnt open yet, so we went allllllllllll the way to Lumut, turn around, stopped by the mangrove swamp for 1-1.5 hours. Lots of monkeys were at the entrance because of the people selling snacks.

This fella was rocking the whole box trying to get something to eat or drink from the man. Just near the entrance, we saw one monkey climb up a tree, run along the branches, and straightaway "did it" with another monkey, right there for public viewing. O.O We walked around... and went walking on the little hanging canopy they put up. (Hey chuah, can you send me the photo you took?). Saw some crabs, lots of rubbish (tsk tsk tsk), and some planks on the walkway were broken... o.O

Then we went back to the go kart circuit and happily, they were open! *everyone cheers* Paid rm10 per person for 7 laps (quite short actually), or we could choose to pay rm20 for 10 minutes and all the driving we want. Miss Hidayah went really slow because she was afraid she would crash... Hou zhen was the very opposite, since he went karting before he had the experience and was waaay out in front, I was in 2nd with Chuah further back in 3rd. Not too bad for a first timer. =] Although it's not fun to be frank like what a lot of my other friends had hyped about. Dont get me wrong, it's a great way to spend time with your buddies like bowling, but it doesnt make me scream "WAAAAAHOOO JOLLY GOSH THIS IS FUN IDONTWANTITTOSTOP YEEEHAWWW!!!!" Maybe the thrill will come if I can get enough practice and have a proper race with Houey *grins*.

All in all, a great time in the dying days of 2009. Will be having my undang test tomorrow (wish me luck!) and badminton in the afternoon with my mates who came back from MRSM. Adieu~

BTW, have you noticed why my title says "I should learn to take more photos"? Yeeeeaahhh..........

Naza World and Naza Italia 2

This is Naza Italia, the largest Ferrari/Maserati showroom outside of Italy. Unlike the sad, grumpy, selfish Naza World boss, the kind young lady at the reception desk gladly allowed me to take as many photos as I wished. One thing I should ask kau foo when he gets back is how did he manage to start up the engines? probably because they didnt want this young boy to mess up multi-million ringgit exotics. Or maybe because there was no salesperson available to attend to us (one was talking with a customer). So, pics:

Ferrari Enzo

The glorious 6 liter V12 engine

Monstrous V8

I wasnt expecting it to be in this dark maroon, but hey... a Ferrari's a Ferrari

These flaps are called diffusers, they help with downforce (those who know form 4 Physics should know how).

A button that will make any man of any age giggle like a little boy

Huge carbon ceramic brakes

Maserati MC12

Maserati GranTurismo

Maserati GranTurismo S (note larger exhausts)

And on the way back we spotted this:

Later at night me and my bro "treated" dad to dinner at Shiok Kopitiam in Bandar Kinrara.

I didnt take the camera with me, but the place you see on the home page is where we ate. You should go try it someday. If you love cheese then you MUST order the chicken fettucini (the Italian's kuey teow). My ice-blended vanilla drink with melted caramel was absolutely fantastic. Anyways, it was supposed to be me and bro's birthday treat for dad (his birthday is on the 17th), but unexpectedly dad got up to pay the bill. Probably when he sleeps tonight I slip the money into his wallet... =P

I guess it's safe to say my year end holiday has reached its climax, and now all that's left is school reopening *gasp* and my driving theory test.
