Don't Judge a Book by its Cover

Thanks to Yahoo! I found out about Susan Boyle and what an inspiration and touching story of rags to riches for me. The Web went abuzz after Ms. Boyle sang "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables during Britain's Got Talent. The performance brought the audience to its feet and left the judges including Simon Cowell either speechless or in tears (A big WOAH). If I may add, brought some people to shame.

Her background life story doesn't reflect the kind of talent or presence that people thought she would bring on stage. She lives alone with her ten-year-old cat, has never been kissed, and is teased by children in the street. You probably can't able to imagine the kind of pain that she has to gone through life everyday. I do not know because she seems like a nice and a bright lady who can be seen constantly smiling even when she sings. Maybe that kind of life made her that strong inside. I feel her though, I know the feeling of being misunderstood, looked down on, ignored and being laughed at. I've been there but not as bad as hers.

I feel so happy for her. In my opinion, the song "I Dreamed a Dream" that she sang really expressed the kind of life that she had. Finally she has the last laugh. Don't ever judge a book by its cover until you read its contents.

Les Miserables - I Dreamed a Dream


There was a time, when men were kind

And their voices were soft

And their words were inviting

There was a time, when love was blind

And the world was a song

And the song was exciting

There was a time it all went wrong


I dreamed a dream in time gone by

When hope was high and life worth living

I dreamed that love would never die

I dreamed that God would be forgiving


Then I was young and unafraid

And dreams were made and used and wasted

There was no ransom to be paid

No song unsung, no wine untasted


But the tigers come at night

With their voices soft as thunder

As they turn your hope apart

As they turn your dreams to shame


He slept a summer by my side

He filled my dreams with endless wonder

He took my childhood in his stride

But he was gone when autumn came


And still I dream he'd come to me

That we would live the years together

But there are dreams that cannot be

And there are storms we cannot weather


I had a dream my life would be

So different from the hell I'm living

So different now from what it seemed

Now life has killed the dream I dreamed

4D Training Course scam scheme?

I got some brochures today from my letter box and there's one which caught my attention. It's an advertisement for "4D Training Course". I'm sure most people in Miri and maybe as well as other places also received this. Very interesting you see. Most of the time I thought that buying lotteries or some sort wholly depends on luck and intuition. I didn't know that you could calculate the winning numbers out based on timing and calculations.

In fact, some people I know do not simply buy 4D numbers. They usually would do some observations first using various ways. One of the most common method is to take note of incidents or things which you think have special meaning. In other word, the "SIGN". For example car plate numbers (especially during accidents), birthdays, deathdays, the amount of money that you spent buying gifts for your lover, numbers that occur in your dream (I got 3058 in my head kekeke *grinning*), the day the bird shit on you, the day I broke my teeth, and etc. be it good or bad signs.

Weird thing is that, sometimes it worked though if you look at the big picture, there are more people who don't kena. Even if kena, won't win big also. The probability probably is like 1 in dunno how many millions to kena the head price. Just like what Fran LeBowitz said, "I figure you have the same chance of winning the lottery whether you play or not."

Lets just play the lottery for the fun and thrill or maybe try your luck in earning a little bit of extra money. Don't do it excessively in hoping that one day you'll strike big and become rich instantly. If kena, then you are one hell of a lucky person lol.

Anyway, according to the brochure, the training consists of 2 courses. First the Foundation Course covered topics like:
  1. Timing System - When to buy your 4D Car Number...? Why Timing is very important.
  2. Timing Signal - Radar-4D Forecast Method: Signals that can alert you now.
  3. Timing Scale - How much should you bet today?
  4. Costing & Budget Management.
  5. Accounting Made Easy.
  6. Observation Skill.
I LOL-ed at the topics that they would teach. Kinda like what you learn from college or university but more concentrated on 4D. I thought that the universities could implement this kind of subject into their systems hahaha.

Next if you want to advance to Immediate Course, you need to take and pass 2 Exams (Compulsory to all students in Malaysia, Singapore & Hong Kong). The exams consists of:

Exam 1: Live 20 Trial Test Games.
Exam 2: Real Game for Real Result. Your winning is your results.

Requirement: You MUST at least win 2 numbers in a week just after the 1 hour training to qualify yourself to next Immediate Course.

Sooooo, meaning that if you FAIL, as in none of your numbers came out in the result and you lost your money buying it, you will not be able to advance to the next course. Probably you will have to pay fee again to retake the 1 hour training again or maybe keep buying numbers until you win at least 2. What a bummer. Sounds to me like a money cheating scheme or some kind of conspiracy designed by people who are trying to capitalize on the market of 4D.

What's next after qualifying for the Immediate Course? It's not stated on the brochure. I guess it's for you to find out yourself. Other details include the time of the classes from 10AM to 9PM everyday from Monday to Sunday. These so-called trainers got a lot of time on their hands huh? Also included are some contact numbers for you to call and reserve your seat.

There's no address for the training places but they do have their website address at "www.win4dtoday.com". I've visited the site, nothing special except some extra and detailed informations on the courses offered and testimonials from their students. From here I found that after Immediate Course, you'll be eligible for 4D Final Level Course.

Very freaking expensive I tell you! The Foundation Course costs RM380 (promotional price, origi-anal price is RM560) for only ONE FREAKING HOUR of training plus some CDs, formula books and one month of customer support by SMS or e-mail........ d-_-b

Almost the same goes for Immediate (promo: RM560, ori:RM720, 1 hour training) and Final Level (promo: 1480, ori: RM2280, 95% winning chance) courses. Come on everybody, say WTF.

Sounds too good for me but doesn't look that good for me. I doubt it 100%. I reckon that you can spend all that money on something better. Don't get fooled by them fools. Don't be a fool. You've been warned.

I don't know why but I'm feeling very under the weather today. Heck even the weather isn't good today. It's raining heavily and the skies are roaring. I feel anger, I feel the rage and I feel like inflicting pain on myself to stop the hate feeling. I hate! Hate! Hate! Hate! Hate!

Monsterism in Me.

Rain/Bi x Usavich


I'm gonna be a bad boy,
I'm gotta be a bad boy,
I'm gonna be bad bad boy,
I'm gotta be a bad boy,

Haha! I just can't stop listening, singing and dancing to that song! I also can't get enough of Usavich! Both of these are always on my mind nowadays so that gave me the inspiration to create a crossover character design between Rain / Bi and Usavich. Pretty cool eh~? If only I could come out with a vinyl figure of this character or maybe on a t-shirt. o(^▽^)o

David Holmes brought the house down during Southwest Airlines flight


This flight attendant, David Holmes gotta get promoted, a commercial deal or something for this. He brought a lot of attentions and free publicities for Southwest Airlines. He’s really famous now till extend that CNN caught wave of the viral video hit on youtube. People would fly Southwest just to listen to him rap.

It was not easy for me to make out what the lyrics are so there would be some mistakes especially at the parts with gold letters. Correct me if I’m wrong hehe.

Rap Lyrics:

This is flight 372 on S-W-A,

The flight attendants on board serving you today,

Teresa in the middle, David in the back,

My name is David and I’m here to tell you that,

Shortly after take off,

First thing first,

There’s soft drinks and coffee to quench your thirst,

But if you wanna another kind of drink,

Then just holler,

Alcohol or beverages will be 4 dollars,

If a mobster finish your drink cos’ you’re paying,

That would be 3 dollars and you get the whole thang,

We won’t take your cash,

You gotta pay the plastic,

If you have to keep em’ then uh… and that’s fantastic,

We know you’re ready,

To get to new places,

Open up the dance floor and wave your suitcases,

Carry-on items go under the seat,

In front of you so none of you will have things by your feet,

If you have a seat on a row with the exit,

We’re gonna talk to you,

So you might as well expect it,

You gotta help us evacuate in case we need you,

If you don’t wanna then we gonna reseat you,

Before we leave,

Our advice is,

Put away your electronic devices,

Fasten your seatbelt,

Then put your treys up,

Press the button and make the seat back raised up,

Sit back, relax,

Have a good time,

It’s almost time to go so I’m done with the rap,

Thank you for the fact that I wasn’t ignored,

This is Southwest Airlines,

Welcome aboard!

“You will not get that on United Airlines. I guarantee you.” – LOL pawned.

…and Air Asia or MAS.


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

Updated Lyrics. Much thanks to Anonymous.

I'm an Indestructable Legendary Killer!

At least that was what I thought I looked like. I was at a friend's house for a sleep over when I put a whitening mask on (Olay brand). I never tried it before so I guess I should give it a try. It was a sticky (the mask itself was covered with some kind of creamy aromatic chemical substance) and a rather refreshing experience.

After applying the mask on my face, I was adviced not to move around too much and just lay on the couch. My friend took this chance to take pictures of me and Raymond. I myself was curious how I looked like lol. It was amusing for me that at one point I bursted into laughter as I had some funny thoughts going through my mind because of the mask. All kinds of characters came into my mind, The Mask, Iron Man, Spiderman, Batman, Hentai Kamen, Power Rangers, Ultraman, The Human-skinned masked dude from Texas Chainsaw Massacre and etc. However, there is only one who I thought I resembled the most.

Guess who?

Jason Voorhees is doing mask.

Anyway, after about 15 minutes, it's time to take off the mask. I went and checked myself in the mirror and waddayaknow...My face became twice as fair as before. 'Wow' I thought. This stuff works so damn good.

Wang Gek said that I looked scary with the mask on. I LOL-ed when she showed me the pictures. I said, 'I look like a monster.'

Do not disturb.

Actually the instant whitening effect worked only like a few hours for me as I found out in the morning when I woke up. You need to do a few more treatments (which is kinda expensive) before you can actually experience the lasting effect.

This is Raymond.

And he got stabbed (heartbroken) lol.
