Officially Graduated !!!

That's right, I've finished my exam last year December 2005 and got my results early April this year, and guess what? my convocation was on 17th September which was 2 days ago. Oh well I guess its worth the wait somehow, the feeling is great where I get to see most of my classmates there to do some catching up as well as taking photos. I guess the fun part is taking photos, its a one in a lifetime thingie and I think everyone should try to snap as much photo as possible as we (me and my classmates) might not meet each other again in the future after this convocation, who knows? Below are some of the photos taken at my convocation.

Hohohoho....happy moments XD

Anyways there's more pictures but I'm too lazy to post all of them here. You can view more of my graduation pictures on my friendster though :) Alright something funny at graduation, besides getting the scroll there was another award for best final year project which I did not manage to get, and I was questioned by my mum =.=" where she goes saying that I always play games on my PC and thus I failed to get that award, which was true.. hahaha I didnt really gave in my 100% I guess, but oh well I'm happy with the results I got no complains there. Oh my scroll was presented by Sapura holdings director or something, Tan Sri something something which made me quite disapointed. I was hoping to get the scroll from the UK University Din, a guai lou which will make the photo looks much much better :(

The ceremony ended around 430PM and there was refreshments prepared for us and the guest outside the ballroom. There was aproximately 1000 guests and it was pretty much crowded, I only manage to grab some food and I couldn't find any drinks, give the guests sapu all already I guess. Left the hotel after paying for my group photo and got a receipt where I'm suppose to collect the photos on the 29th when I return my gown. We went to watch the football matches that night featuring Chelsea vs Liverpool and Man United vs Arsenal which was quite dissapointing where Man U midfielders were basically crappy the whole night. Damn I hope Giggs will faster recover from his injury, we need him!! argh...

Nothing much this few days, basically spend the time fixing up my car and furnishing it with something nice =P Thats all for now.

Changing Shift?!

Yup u read that right, I will be changing shift soon whereby instead of working sun-wed its going to be wed-sat wtf? Yup I'm going to miss all the weekend hangouts with you guys, bah this sucks but there is nothing I could do really, as I'm assigned to handle a new account by my team leader and apparently the first half (sun-wed) shift is already full. Oh well, told by my team lead that I could make a swapping with my first half team mates once the account is stabalized. Yeah the new account is facing alot of problems, and well they need me Super-Loong to go and fix it lol, just kidding. Anyways I look at it as a chance for me to learn new stuffs and to prove my worthiness whereby I made a vow to myself that I'm going to fix that account single-handedly, yeah right! Oh, I just realized that I cant be ranting about work here anymore =_=" as my blog is easily searched on google, dont believe me? try googling for Tze Loong.

Apart from that Kevin has officially fired his boss yesterday =.= and hopefully he will be able to join my company, hohoho then we can lepak together for breaks X). Oh and his blog has been revived, hopefully not for a day only lol.

LX is back from Cambodia and bought back some cool postcards for us, picked one off the loads of postcard, although didn't get the one I wanted (who took the blue Angkor Wat postcard?! faster give it to me *bwahahahaha*). Also he got me a blinder! thanks man at last I can sleep well in the afternoon now without getting disturbed by the sun light. Alright aside from that quite a number of my friends are leaving to UK to continue their studies lets name a few of them: Vincent, Whei Meng, Victoria, and Jeng Yean. I wish you all the best in your studies, good luck in whatever you do over there and dont forget to take good care of yourselves, hope to see you guys soon I hope.

Been thinking quite alot lately, whereby I'm still in the midst of considering whether I should continue to modify my car by changing the engine just for the sake of fun. Hmmm... I need some opinion people. This is a point where I need to decide should I continue to modify my car or should I concentrate in getting a new car? which will be quite sometime from now, probably after I've finished paying my car loan. I am reluctant to sell off my car now as I have placed in a lot of effort to make it look good and it will be a waste if I let it go. Then aside from that I am also thinking about my plans for my future, the CCNA cert, should I take a course or should I self study? I can save alot if I choose to self study about 4k+-. I will need to look for materials to self study, as the paper needs me to have some basic knowledge on the cisco products. Hmm.. I will leave the study plan to next year, I will concentrate on improving my life this year by equiping myself with stuffs that I have been craving to buy all these years.

I did some research on the job scope of all the accounts that are handled by my department, almost everyone here are doing event monitoring and notification, yeah sounds nice? basically they are just like a mail room, dispatching things to supporting teams without doing much technical stuffs. Yup and I'm not proud of what I'm doing here either, too little to learn in my opinion, and hopefully I will be able to acquire more knowledge from the new account. Oh by the way I'm having my convo this coming sunday 17th September at Renaissance Hotel KL starts in the morning around 9AM. You guys are welcome to come to my convo :P butyou're not allowed to get in the hall as the seats are very limited and besides that you need to pay RM60 in order to get a seat, yup APIIT slaughters all of us because they know we will pay for its a once in a lifetime thingie sigh. Alright that's all for now will update again soon.

10 years of Computing...

Yup 10 years of computing, thats the amount of years I've lived with my PCs. I was browsing Gamespot.com when I came across Fifa 07, still remember the first game I bought for my PC was Fifa 98 and thinking back, it has been 10 years since then. Thinking back I've became so dependant on it that a day without the PC is like I'm missing a big part of myself. Thinking back the PC played a really important role in my life, it has been an important communication tool for myself as its very boring as I'm the only child in my house. It provided entertainment as well as connecting me to all my friends, perhaps its the greatest mankind creation for single child family :P Still remember my first PC was a Pentium 166MHz MMX, then 2 years after that I got it upgraded to a AMD K6/2 450MHz. Those were the only 2 PCs that were not assembled by me, thinking back I got cheated quite alot by the computer shop =.=" I guess you pay the price of being noob. The following year I got a part time job at a computer shop in a shopping complex nearby my place, guess there was where i started to get more interest on computers.

Then I built my first PC which was a Duron 650MHz and I've learnt overclocking PC from the seniors there and managed to get my Duron to run at 900MHz w00t? yeah since then I have been overclocking my PC to run at a faster speed. I've also unofficially became the IT guy among my classmates and providing services for their PCs every now and then. Upgraded to several other PCs and now I'm using a Pentium 4 2.8GHz which is overclocked to 3.5GHz. Its going to be sometime before I upgrade the PC, or perhaps I'm not going to upgrade it anymore, guess its enough as I'm quitting on games and the PC is sufficient to play movies, perform some office task and internet surfing. Alright what do I get on spending 10 years with the PC? well I guess it brings me closer to my friends, got myself exposed to the technology stuffs and being my primary source of entertainment. Yeah, and the bad side? I've got bad astigmatism of the eye. My right eye astig level went from 0 to 200 and left eye from 0 to 150 in this 10 years. It may look little, but when I tried living a day without my spectacles the other day it was hell, I had a hard time reading the words from my monitor and driving at night was hell. But well I guess that's the price to pay for the services it provided me? Yeah right...

So I'm actually at work now, my eyes are kind of blurry, still a little dizzy after yesterday clubbin session with Kevin, Wei Ming, Vincent and Sai Seng at Zouk KL. The session went bad I did say, okay firstly it was all guy outing, then the worst part is.. not much chic was in Zouk that night =.=. Made a promise to myself that the next outing there have to be girls with us, okay dont get me wrong its to prevent people from misunderstanding us as gays LOL and we're definitely straight mind you. The DJ was really bad whereby the theme of the night was trance but the tune was just from low to high and vice versa the entire night! wth, the most uncreative DJ I've ever came across. Luckily the drink was good, yes! nothing beats Chivas got to say its my favourite liquor of all time. We left about 230AM and then we went to Jln Alor famous beef noodle, the noodle was good although I had the pork version due to religion restrictions. On our way back we met a roadblock but thanks to our Pro-conman cum driver Wei Ming we made the cops to believe that we were actually heading back home from supper *LOL*. Took my bath as soon as I reached home and then got a call from a friend and we chit chatted for about 2 hours when I finally gave up and slept around 615AM.

Well here I am now 12 hours from the time I slept blogging at work and in fact I'm very sleepy but I just restricted myself from sleeping, just following the rules and I believe HP does not pay me to sleep at work like some of the !@#$% does. Alright guess that's all for now, take care !
