Laxative, powerful and effective

short-talk:

My church has just launched its official Youth Service this evening. It's just great and inspiring. Truly, one of my greatest aspires is to see "Every believer to be passionate for God."

---------------------------------------------------

Everyone faces constipation before. True?


If you have not, i pity you 'cos you have just missed out one of the seven wonders of human inner body escapades.


Don't get me wrong, i'm not saying that constipation is good for us. Even personally, i hate it heaps. The feeling is just so terrible, such that one feel like carrying a harden chocolate cake in the bowel for days and days. Perhaps, even worst, weeks.


Constipation knocked at my bowel about two weeks ago. Of 'cos this was not what i intended for. I did drink water consistently, but it attacked me again. I felt miserable for the entire two weeks. I felt like taking a chainsaw, severing my bowel and void out the faeces.


By the way, just to make myself clear, i did not keep those cakes in my bowel for the long straight two week k. I am not a rubbish bin. I did, but not much. Get it?


I tried to eat as many papaya as i could, *papaya papaya* but this method did not aid well. I don't want to end up having bowel cancer... Later, my mum introduced this remedy to me. I should say, the answer.

Dulcola.


I had no hope other solution to my situation anymore but to give myself a try for this Dulcola. Exactly 12 hours later, i seriously sensed a bad stirring in my bowel and it's again uncomfortable. Yet, i knew this happening will give good outcome.


Minutes later, i ended up in the factory making nice icing cakes. And **relieved**


It's overloaded until i feel like ...

Anyone interested? *grin*

On newspapers 'again' !!!!

short-talk:

I am starting to like our National Anthem, Negaraku now. "....tanah tumpahnya darahku..."

Do you?


--------------------------------------------------------------


Tell me, how often can you appear on the newspaper? Maybe once in a lifetime? Obituary, i mean. *choy choy* But then, up to date, i have myself published publicly on the newspaper twice as far as i could remember.


Two times man and that is actually a lot!


Just exactly one year ago, August last year, i participated the Kuching City Parade with my junkers' peeps. And unexpectedly, our faces were publicized on the Chinese newspaper. Yes. Super huge image.


Photobucket

Spot on me?

Probably not many would notice that middle exhausting guy, carrying the weighty Milo tins was actually me because of the whole chunk of color paints painted on my face. Poor me.


Nonetheless, I was on the newspaper recently again! Just yesterday, i was told by my friends that they spotted me on the second page of the Chinese newspaper. Not obituary ok. It's actually on subject of the Swinburne Graduation. I'm not graduating, but i'm in the newspaper! lol!


Shawn's convocation.


Unbelievable? Believe it.


#tada#

Photobucket

The girls.


I'm no way to be seen in that snapshot. All girls unite together except Shawn. In fact, what makes it special is my face is published in a more "colorful" image, which is:


Photobucket

Woot!

Multicolor eh.. Seems like that particular paparazzi is actually stalking after Shawn, not me. So, it has proven through this that Shawn's convocation is so so so important not only to you, but to the whole Sarawakians, to the whole world. LOL...


Be that as it may, Johnson is on the newspaper! Jealous eh...


Photobucket

*Smile!*

Our group photo is supposedly to look like this. LOL! Guess that the Chinese Newspaper's paparazzi has been following stalking after me especially at the month of August. lol..


Hmm..... maybe on next year's August, i might appear on the front page...


What say you? *grin*


Comments:

haha...reli unbelieveble that we are in the newspapers...both newspapers have my face le..:P

My potential fingerprints

short-talk:

It was told that the petrol price has dropped by 15 cents. Do you know why, people?

I know ...


------------------------------------------------------------

Last Saturday was Swinburne G-R-A-N-D Opening.


What makes it grand is the opportunity i have to be part of the choirs to sing the Anthems. Yet, what makes it more grand is my two hands:



Photobucket

The bike

I placed my two hands on the handle and snapped a picture with the police bike. Don't **cher** eh... How often can you place your both hands on those vast, deluxe and sophisticated Police bikes?


At least, i took up the courage. *wink*


Even so, what makes the G-R-A-N-D Opening even more grand is my fingerprint. People, never ever under estimate the capability of my fingerprint. Why?


Simply because:


Photobucket


Taib's Rolls Royce has my fingerprint on it. Forever and ever. Don't *cher* eh. How often can a person plant down its fingerprint on Taib's car?


I know this snapshot is of incalculable value; still, don't get jealous yea...

The Anthems

short-talk:

Papaya Juice is healthy. *slurpe*


----------------------------------------------


Acclaim enthusiastically to the whole world, this coming 23rd August, Saturday is Swinburne Grand Opening. Fabulous! Swinburne University of Technology will officially celebrate its 100th anniversary and embark on its building.



Photobucket

The G-R-A-N-D Opening.

Bear in mind that this ceremony will not just be another typical outset you encounter in all places. As for Swinburne's, there will be chancellors from various universities from Australia and other parts of the world attending this event. Hence, it's known as the G-R-A-N-D Opening.


Yes, those BIG shots and names from overseas are coming. Furthermore, our Chief Minister, Mr. Taib and his wife will appear at this ceremony too.


Supposedly, our Prime Minister, Mr. Pak Lah has agreed to turn up for this G-R-A-N-D opening too, but due to the by-election thingy, he's not coming. Not appearing anymore. At least, he's sending a representative to come.


Who knows, instead of having our Prime Minister, Pak Lah, we might have Pak Loh noodles coming? hmm....


Also, The G-R-A-N-D Opening will be held in MPH.



Photobucket
I mean, Swinburne's Multi Purpose Hall la...


Photobucket


More than a thousand of invited guests, lecturers and international students will flock together in this hall. As only two more days to go, construction workers are trying to get the preparation done. Props to be set up. Trial performances are read through daily. Organizing committee members are making every effort to get things flow without a hitch.


Inevitably, everyone is so hectic now.


Photobucket


You can even spot on Spiderman and Cicak man hanging on the ceiling. Ever wonder why Cicak Man is so slow behind Spiderman?


So, why am i writing about this G-R-A-N-D opening?


Proud to say, i, Johnson is involving in the Choir Singing for the G-R-A-N-D Opening. To be more precise, i was invited without my concession by Mdm Maggie to participate in this choir.


Frankly, I did feel of not wanting to sing at the first place, but after some thought, i reckon that this is a rare and golden opportunity for us and me to perform in Swinburne G-R-A-N-D Opening.


Photobucket

After all, it's only occurred once yea. Hey, it's the G-R-A-N-D Opening!


I, together with the choir members will sing Malaysian National Anthem and Australian National Anthem.


True enough, i couldn't recall when was the last time i actually stood straight up and sing our National Song with full dignity. Don't laugh, i know you are the same.


I admit that i don't have a pleasant and beautiful voice compares to others, but at least i am eligible *wink* to be part of the 40 students to sing in front of:


Photobucket

his wife, the man and the tall man.


You will never appreciate and think highly of how hard it is to actually sing our National Anthem properly. I remember during the morning assembly at my early Secondary days, i always tend to sing the Anthem without much energy, standing like a sotong and just babbling through the lyrics.


Don't laugh, i know you are the same. =P


Even worst, some of you could have forgotten our National Anthem lyrics too. True? =P


Photobucket

Our Choir instructor, Mr. Beng.


And this is where the chancellors will be sitting.


It's utterly different now. Knowing that we, the Choir vocalists are so significant for the kick off. We are called to come almost everyday to rehearse for only this two songs. Practice after practice.


Photobucket

The rehearsal.


And now it's in Choir mode, the projection of voices are required. The diction of each word is needed. The big wide mouth opened is necessary.

Photobucket

Woot!

Perhaps this is my first time that i am so enlivened and well prepared to sing our National song. Both songs keep stirring in my mind now.


A day left for myself to prepare.



Photobucket

The Stage.


Photobucket

Free T-Shirt


What makes me feel more honor right now is that, i know how to sing the Australian Anthem thoroughly.


"...advance Australia fair..."


Comments:

Finally the grand opening for swinburne is arrive.
It was a privilege for us can be in the choir team and welcoming team, as well as attain this big big events.
now i know how to sing the Australia Anthem and Australian students also know how to sing Malaysia Anthem so that is fair...hehehe...we have free T-shirt too...:P
enjoy ourself in thisGrand opening! :)

Bako reviews --Part 1--

short-talk:

And so it is true, Negaraku has never been played publicly in any Olympic... will never?

-------------------------------------------------------------


As mentioned earlier on, i have never heard of Bako until 2 years ago. Now and then, people keep talking about Bako. How nice Bako is. How worth it to get yourself to visit Bako. I envy though.


And the day that i have been yearning for has come to past. Last Sunday.


Knowing for sure that this day will surely be filled with tremendous fun and great adventures, i forced myself to wake up before the sun reached above the horizon and get myself ready. Grabbed my kit, did some stretching and drove my snoozing Myvi to Xiang Xiang Cafe and gathered.


It only took around 40 minutes drive from Kuching to Kampung Bako.


Photobucket

Just ignore that poser. >.<


Just for you information, Bako National Park is an island. So, we need to reach Kampung Bako first, then take a 30 minutes boat ride to Bako island.


Photobucket

In total, we had around 41 students joining us for this trip. Huge group. Supposed to be 42 people but one human overslept. =.=" pig.


Anyhow, wondering why am I standing in front of so many people? Cos' I was none other than the sanguine Camp Commander.


Photobucket

Don't laugh. I know it's funny. 0.O


Even I myself think that my face looked extremely ugly and monstrous. I was not supposed to look like that if you have seen me, just that i happened to accidentally pose such mien and Chris quickly took a snapshot without my acknowledgment. *piak*


Photobucket

Tax collector huh?



Photobucket

Kampung Bako is really a humble and calm living place as seen. Most of the villagers who live here depend very much on their daily catch and transportation of tourists to Bako Park.


Photobucket

The Kampung kampung.


Photobucket

After the settlement of ticket, we quickly rushed ourselves to the jetty and hop on the boat before the alternate sea tide reached low level.


Photobucket

Of course, we get to choose our preferable boat to sit, and i chose this boat:


Photobucket

That's my maroon boat. An aged uncle with a white cap. Excited!


Photobucket

Off and here we go! Manage to spot me on that boat? =P


There are a few possible reasons why it's compulsory to wear the orange safety jacket. First, to keep us safe in case we drown. Secondly, most probably is because that the boat is not in an accountable and utter secure set-up. High possibility of shipwreck. True?


Nonetheless, i did not wear any safety jacket owing to the fact that i have little knowledge of kicking and swimming. At least i know how to float, unlike ...... **wink**


Photobucket

Surely, everyone on boat was so enthusiastic and anxious to know more about Bako. 30 minutes ride was definitely sufficient for everyone on boat to get a buzz of the sea view.


Photobucket


When the puff of wind caressed through your face, such gentle contact was truly beyond descriptions. The uncontaminated and cool air. The not-so-blue sea. Indescribable indeed.


Photobucket

Catching fishes or "Catching snakes"?


Photobucket




Photobucket

This boat that supposed to be behind us overtook us.



Photobucket



Photobucket

Erm.... i don't know what's that. From far it looked like a shark, from a close distance it looked like a (___fill in the blank____)


During the 10-15 minutes of uninterrupted ride, we stumbled upon these splendid views of trees, big rocks, mountains and so forth.



Photobucket

The edge of the rocky island.

Photobucket


Photobucket

Something funny happened. As we were enjoying the magnificent views, out of the sudden, I heard no sound of the engine’s working. At once, I came to a realization that our boat’s actually die down!


Yes! I know it sounds rather jokey and bizarre, but who could have envisioned for such incidence to happen to me. Worst to say, I was in the last boat while others had reached Bako Park. The Camp Commander stuck in the middle of the sea! *yell*


And this was absolutely not what i'm anticipating for. I have not even reached Bako Park and my boat died in the middle of no way??!!

Photobucket

At this moment i regretted of not wearing the safety jacket. *help!*And now i have really realized how important was that orange jacket. **hit my own head** The Camp Commander was trapped in the middle of the sea!!!


Conceivably, to be more encouraging, I purposely took this unexpected occurrence as a planned happening by the inexperienced uncle to grant us more time to enjoy the view. Hmm…


And i spotted this mountain from a far end,

Photobucket

That's Gunung Santubong.


Correct me if i'm wrong. If you notice the mountain slightly longer, it actually looks like a pregnant lady lying down horizontally right?


See it?

After the unwanted sunbathe, the uncle finally managed to regenerate the engine and we continued our voyage.


A couple more minutes later, we finally managed to see the pier.


Photobucket

And so, we were welcomed with some applauses by these

Photobucket

Homo sapiens.


Not only by them, we also had this unanticipated welcoming team,


,Photobucket

Monkey? Yes. Monkey.


Photobucket

Real monkey sitting on the bench!


Goodness, this was really shocking. I had not even prepared myself to meet with these monkeys and they had already welcomed me and others at the front door.


Photobucket

"Where is the cage, Mr Zoo Keeper??!!!" **yell**


Seriously man, i was so so startled when i saw those monkeys in a close distance. Okay okay, i was scare. In Kuching, you see stray dogs and cats scattered around the street; in bako, you will see monkeys, heaps of monkeys jumping around you....!!


Photobucket

Monyet..


And to be frank, these monkeys were not friendly and tame at all! They went super aggressive and confrontational when they encountered we, homo sapiens. When i reached the jetty and saw those monkeys starring at me, i as the Camp Commander tried so hard to hide my fear and showed my boldness in front of the people, still, i failed... i quickly ran towards crowds and concealed myself.


Photobucket

I


Photobucket

hate


Photobucket

monkeys.

By looking at this monkey's hairstyle, it seems like it's trying to imitate David Beckham. Copycat.


Somehow these monkeys did not seem to be that appealing to me. None of their act of appearing attracted me. Hmm.... I just dislike monkey. Forever.


Be that as it may, i was thankful that i did not get shipwrecked with my boatmates in the middle of the sea.


Photobucket


At least, i managed to arrive at Bako National Park in one piece. *grin*


.....to be continued



Comments:

You know what? if you move futher inside Kampung Bako, that will lead you to a hill. SKJ Chung Hua Bako is on the middle of the hill. I worked there for 6 months.. haha!
