Or will it be the remaining 1% to fall on 3 June or 4 June?

As promised, this will be the post "I Have a Date with Giddens" 我和九把刀有个约会. However, I have too many photos to post and I don't want to make the post become too lengthy. I will divide them into 2 parts. Today will be the Part I.
I departed from my house around 6.45pm. I need to go Greenlane to pick up my friend before going towards the destination. I reached the Sin Chew building at Macalister Road before 7.30pm. It's hard to find a parking lot. I need to park my car along Lorong Selamat and walk to the building.
Out of my expectation, the hall is almost full with people. I thought it will be a few and not that many. At the back, the popular staff was selling Giddens' book. We found 2 seats at the 4th row on the left. To me, the seat was good. It's front enough for me to take photos!
Before the talk starts, I went to the back and checked out Giddens' book. Those books that I bought from Taiwan online bookstore were selling there. Most of the books are selling at RM18.90 and RM24.90 nett. For the latest book, there is a 20% discount. To me, it is a very good deal. I cannot get the books in such a low price. I think you can guess what will be my next step. YES, I bought some of them. How many I bought this time? Let you guess, just guess for fun. I will let you know the answer in the Part II post. :)
The talk is mainly about Giddens. He talked about himself, starting from his first book. The talk is quite interesting. Due to the time, he finished the talk and have a Q&A session. Some people asked him questions and he answered all of them.
Before he let the audience asking the questions, he told us he has 3 questions that he is not going to answer. First, why he call himself Jiu Ba Dao 九把刀 (Nine Knives). Second, which 9 knives. Third, where is the idea comes from.
After the Q&A, the talk session is ended. What is coming up next? Yes!!! Time for the autograph!!! This is the most awaited session for me. Yeah..... I have the chance to let the author sign on the books! I wanted to let him sign all of them but they only allow us to sign 2 books at one time. If we want to have him sign all the books, we need to wait. Since he can sign all of them, for sure I will wait. :)
Giddens was signing all the books I have!!!
To be continue...
Next: Photos on the autograph and more.... Stay Tune.
Thursday, May 29, 2008
I'm back!!! Where I went? I think most of you know about it. Yes, I went to meet up the writer Giddens 九把刀!
Now, I'm busy copying all the photos into my laptop. I need time to select which one to post in my blog.
This post is only a preview for the post "I Have a Date with Giddens" which will publish by tomorrow with all the photos.
For those who are still don't know who is he, here's a glimpse of him.
Remember to come back tomorrow, to find out whether I manage to have his autograph and take photo with him. Stay tune for the full post ya. :)

My friend brought her son to the office last week. This is the first time I met her son after seeing so many of his photos from my friend's blog. He is so cute!!!
According to my friend, he likes me very much. My friend brought her to another cube to visit her friends and her son wanted to come back to my cube instead. Haha. We played with him for a while. My friend asked him to kiss one of my colleague and he refused to do so. But when she asked him to kiss me, he just came and kissed me. Hahaha, he was so cute!

During the renovation and decorating for a new house, windows will be part of them. For those who never involve in the house renovation, maybe you will say it's only windows, very easy to settle about it. I have that kind of thinking few years back until I got my new house.
It's a headache decision for you to make on the house decorating. You need to decide whether you want to use curtain or blinds. You also need to make sure, the colour for the curtain or blinds must suit the colour for that room. It's not an easy job.
Talk about blinds, I got one website that has information on this. Before that, I don't know there are so many blinds in the market, including Mini Blinds, Vinyl Mini Blinds, Motorized Shades and many more.
For each of the blinds, there will be a description for it. You even can learn on the installation from the How to Install guide. Free samples are available for you if you request for it.

Just a reminder, there are 2 hours left for the guessing game on 23456 hit for my blog. If you are still not making any guess, please do so in this last 2 hours! If not, don't come and tell me I'm not fair ya..... Hehehe.
Previously on Books......
Odonata Publishing called on 8 May and I asked them to send me Bright Times together with Moon City when Moon City is out a week later.
On 15 May Thursday, I received an email from Odonata Publishing, saying that they have sent out the books via normal post to me. I was happy to get the email. I thought it will reach me very fast. So, I wait.
There is no sign of the books on Friday and Saturday. I thought it will be on Monday. Later, only I realized Monday is Wesak Day and is a public holiday. Tuesday, 20 May, there is still no sign of the books. I have no choice but to wait patiently. On Wednesday, when I checked my mailbox, I got this card.
Oh man!!! I missed the postman!!! I have work, nothing I can do about it. I need to take this card to collect my books from the post office.
On Thursday, during lunch time, I went to the post office and got the books. I was so excited. I can't wait to see what is written inside the books by the author. Before I opened the package, I took the photos of the package inside my car!
The package is not in good shape. The brown paper seems to be tear off by someone during the delivery. I cannot wait any longer and open it after I took the photos.
This is what I got: Bright Times and Moon City!! I loved both of them!!!
Moon City is written by our lovely 邓秀茵.
Inside the book, you can see her writing and signature. Nice writings right?
For Bright Times, it is written by 许友彬.
友彬哥 wrote my 奕 wrongly. He wrote it as 亦. Anyway, I still like it very much.
On the back of both books, there is a short note. Both are also very meaningful. First one is from Bright Times and second one is from Moon City.
Thanks to 秀茵 and 友彬哥 for signing the books for me. I like them very much!
Who not yet buy the books? Just go to Odonata Publishing and order them now.

Another guessing game for all my readers. My hit is going to reach 22222 soon. I want you to guess the date for my blog to reach this number! Besides 22222, please also guess when my blog will hit 23456. Of course, the one who guess it correctly will have a gift from me. If there is more than one people with the same answer, the first to state the date in my comment will be the winner.
For the previous guessing post, Chobits and Akira are the winner. Who will be the next one? Will it be Chobits and Akira once again?
For the guessing on 22222, it will start from 22nd May 2008 12AM until 23rd May 2008 12AM, total of 24 hours.
For the guessing on 23456, since it will still take some time to reach that number, i will extend it for another day. It will start from 22nd May 2008 12AM until 24th May 2008 12AM, total of 48 hours.
Start guessing now and Good Luck!

Death Note, a Japanese series based on the comic. It's all about a notebook from the death god. Anyone whose name is written inside the notebook will die. Light, an ace student found the notebook and started to use it. Criminal happens and L, the legendary detective has been appointed to investigate the case.
If in the real world, you can choose to have one supernatural characteristic, what will you choose? For me, I want to have the power to stop the time. Sometimes, I think that the time flies too fast. If I can stop the time, it will be good. I can finished all my stuffs, then only resume back the time. Nice huh?
For those who lived in US, you have the chance to watch DeathNote now. It's only shows in theater for 2 nights, 20 May and 21 May at 7.30pm, in most of the cinemas nationwide. You can get the ticket by entering the zip code in the search box on the website. Grab the ticket now while seats are still available.
Before you purchase a web hosting, it is better for you to do a research or read more about it. There are many web hosting company that you can choose from. Each web hosting company provides different plans or packages for users. Some is cheap but the features are not as many as those expensive. However, you also need to know what is your actual need.
I found one site which is full of useful articles on web hosting including linux web hosting. Some people prefer linux web hosting for its security. It is the safest web hosting if compare to windows based.
Do you have a web hosting? If not, are you going to get one? Remember to go through the articles before your purchase.

I think many people heard of Lasik especially for those who are wearing glasses. Lasik is a corneal reshaping procedure by using the laser technology. With this eye surgery, one no longer needs to wear the glasses anymore. To me, I would really want to try it out. However, until now, I didn't make a move. Why?
Every time I talked with my friends about this, some will say it's not good to do it. They said Lasik is not 100% safe. You will not sure whether the surgery will success or fail. If fail, your eyes will become blind. Some of them said it's too expensive to do it while some other will think that they have already used to wearing the glasses.
After listening to those comments, the most important reason that pull me back is the first reason. I'm scared that my eyes will be blind if there is anything wrong during the operation.
If you lived in California and want to get more information about Lasik, you can always go to Lasik in Walnut Creek, Santa Rosa, San Francisco or Silicon Valley.

Yeah, that's right, I no need to go to work tomorrow since training is cancel. I have whole day tomorrow, think of going to watch Narnia but not confirm.
Talking about the Earthquake in China, I feel so sad to see and read the news. I feel like crying after reading them. There is one 3 years old girl, the rescue team manage to save her. Her parents helped to cover her and they died instead. Another victim, a 67 years old man, they found him in the wreckage. He is hugging his wife when they found him. His wife was dead and he is alive. The number of people died in the earthquake is keep on increasing. The latest number from the TV news was 19500. Can you imagine this?? 19.5K!!!!!! So so so SAD!!!!!
Tomorrow I'm going to Sin Chew office to donate some money to the earthquake victim. Although I cannot donate a lot, at least I contribute a bit. Hopefully, can help them out.

Starting last Sunday 11 May 2008, I need to go to office everyday for 13 days in a row. Here is my schedule:
11/5 to 14/5 - My own shift.
15/5 - Covering my colleague.
16/5 - Training.
17/5 - Return one day to my colleague. I owed her.
18/5 to 20/5 - My own day shift.
21/5 to 23/5 - Covering my colleague.
That's why, I asked one of my colleague to swap on this Sunday with me. I will return her one day on next month. At least I can rest one day in between this super duper crazy schedule. She agreed and I'm happy about it. Of course happy la, since I can rest, although only 1 day. Better than nothing.
Today, the whole morning, my left eye keeps "moving" non stop. Cantonese says Ngan Mei Tiu 眼眉调. If this happen, for left eye, it is bad and for right eye, it is good 左凶右吉.
In the afternoon, my phone rang. My colleague called me, said that got a big problem. She promised another colleague to swap with him and work night shift instead of morning. By doing so, means she will work on Saturday night until Sunday morning. She was not able to help me to work on Sunday anymore!
I was not happy. Of course la, she promised me first then now told me cannot. I already planned to take my mum out for lunch or dinner on this Sunday. Now, all also no need to say anymore. Plan need to be cancel and I need to go to work! Back to 13 days in a row.
If you already promise someone, will you break your promise? I have no idea. But for me, I will not simply promise over something if I am not sure about it.
I feel very upset and my mood is like taking a roller coaster, from very high point suddenly drop to a very low point. Sigh...... Don't want to think so much now. I just wish the time will pass quickly and it will be over after next Friday!
Wish me luck!!!
I received a call during my work on Sunday. He asked me whether I'm at home because he wanted to deliver something to my mum. I was like, huh? Deliver what? Then I realized, it was Mother's Day. For sure it will be my 3rd sister. She is the only one will send my mum gifts during Mother's Day. She never informed me about it. She forgot about it, as what she said.
I'm not yet celebrated with my mum. We postponed it. Hahaha. :)

I think it's time for me to reveal the answer for my guessing contest. Hmmmm, is it a contest by the way? :) If I didn't reveal it by today, I think Kikey, Dora, Sharon and LimZhi will kill me! Hahaha.
This is the box inside the DHL envelope. It's not really a big one, and not a small one either. Can you guess what is inside now?
BOOKS!!!!! Yes, I bought books from Taiwan online book store. I cannot find these books in the Popular due to these books were released few years back. Maybe you will ask, why not just ask Popular to help ordering the books. I can tell you, it's easier for me to order online. The price for the books are actually very cheap! After including the shipping fees, it is still cheaper! Can you imagine this? Furthermore, It only takes 3 days for the books to reach me!!! It's super duper fast. I ordered on Sunday morning and the books reached on Wednesday noon! Amazing service.
Here are the books I bought. How many of them? Can you count from this photo?
Just in case you are not able to count how many from the above photo, here's the order list. It's a total of 6!!! I covered the price for the books. Hehehe.
The winner for this guessing game is the one and only Chobits!!! Yes la, it's you!!! You are the first one to leave the comment and stated books! You won yourself a gift from me! What gift is that? You will know when you receive it.
For the second question on how many item I bought, no one guess it correctly. Many of you said 2, including Akira, Piggy, TSP, Ang Ku, K3vin, Anne and 恶魔的恋人. While Joze and Sai Ling said 3. Ping Ping said 4 and 百勤 said 5. I'm waiting for someone to reply with a number 6, but it seems no one think that I will buy so many books at one time!
Thanks for everyone who participate! Although you didn't win a gift from me, I'm still help to advertise your blog by having the link on your name! Not bad right? :)
I will still have this kind of game in the future, just visit my blog more often la! I also want to take the opportunity to thank all who visited my blog often. With your support and comments, I only have the motivation to continue and write more and more!
THANKS and LOVE U ALL! MUACKS MUACKS!!
P/S Since no one won my 2nd gift, for the one who get my sofa for this post, I will give the second gift to him or her! Good Luck!!! I can't wait to see who is the lucky one!!!
