Anyway here's some pics of the so call Winter Wonderland in Barunaiku.

Went to watch the highly anticipated new OO7 flick last weekend,an all boys affair,myself,my brother in law and my father in law...It was spectacular,eventhough with little gadgets,the story line is great and im starting to like this new Blond bond, very charimastic,very masculine,its not that the previous bonds are not,but this new Spy agent is buff,instead of having a sexy girl coming out of the water,it was him,the muscled bond...hahahha..a new era in the next bond franchise.This Bond is made to work hard all the time in this movies, had his face scratched and his balls whip(ouch!!!).But overall this new Bond movie is a 2 thumbs up.So go and watch get yourself entertained.

Trekking at Tasek Lama

While huffing and puffing my way up the trek stumble upon a man meditating toward the sun

One of the less straining leg of the trek at Tasek

View of Bandar from top of tasek.

The last time i went for a fitness regime was before Ramadhan,manage to lose 3kg after ramadhan,and immediately gain 5kg during Syawal!!!!arrgghhh,so i decide to wake up early on a friday morning and starts my fitness programs.Well to be honest, i was only thinking of doing a short trek to the first slope of tasek, well its my first exercise anyway since ramadhan,so manage to reach the first slope, and confidently overtaking few fellow trekker(slow ones..mun paham bisai)and when i decided to turn back, the slow ones(he's kinda big) starts to follow me from behind, hey, i was thinking to myself at that moment, if he decides to continue the journey completing 1 round of the tasek trek,why cant i do it(a quote from my wife"you rather die for your ego ")so i decided to push on to complete the whole round, while glancing back always for the big guy.....Manage to complete the whole round of the trek and upon descend to the tasek park..i puked!!!! you guys, take out your trainer,don those sports attire and dont let the big size guys beat you to your game..the EGO has landed.

Let the Game Console War Begins

I hope this 3 Game console will be the last one being produced in this decade,no,make it this century,to date i have 1 SNES,1 sega,1 megadrive,1 playstations,1 xbox and lastly 1 PSP,in the last 2 decades.Boy,how much have i spent my mums money on those things. Now,came the consoles of all consoles,the anticipated release of PS3,just recently launched in Japan last week,XBOX 360 was launched a year earlier,Wii(nintendo) i have no idea when this was launched. Now to the $1000 question or more(HDTV is required for these consoles),what will i get for my next birthday, or to be exact what will i get for Syahmi,promised him to get an XBOX 360 if he went for his bersunat next month. OR better yet, will i get the approval of the financial controller...heheh,mun paham bisai.

Pics of my cousins and my wifes nephews & nieces(note the 2 latingz)

I came from a long line of big families,my mum side have 9 siblings,dad side have 7 siblings,and i have lost counts of the number of 1st cousins,2nd cousins,etc..etc, (i have not include my wifes side yet), i only have 4 siblings,3 in laws,and 6 nephews and nieces. An aunt,my mother sister have 12 children,imagine the number of grandchildren she have now. In Brunei, family usually comes first, had a conversation today with a french colleague of mine, and he is impressed with the Brunei Family values that we have here, He told me that the elders in Europe usually are left to the Care centre to be cared of. It just shows how we Bruneian respect and took care of our elders until they have gone, i do hope this long traditions of care for the elder be instilled to our younger generations, so this tradition of respect to the elder people are passed on to the next generations.

Life as it is

Hallways to Heaven..(kidding, the hallway of Jame Asre)

Had breakfast yesterday with old friends,they were supposed to visit the Royal families at Istana,but decide to have breakfast with me, went to the airport restaurant and guess what "crap!! no roti canai!!",they were doing some renovation at the place,and what does the renovation have to do about not having roti canai??,anyway,it was great to catch up with old friends especially during this festive seasons,we were talking about zakat,life,death,etc..etc..i guess it must be the age things that leads up to this kind of conversation,it used to be about the latest handphones,laptops,but now its about life and death.
Talking about death,are we prepared for it?, are we ready to go anytime if god permits,im for sure are not,i still need to see my kids grow,my wealth and health prospers,and get that shiny sport car before i turn 40,haha..but hey,god have its on plans,so the only preparation that i have before i go, will be my insurance policy,my TAP,my debts(hope i can finish it before i die) and of course my prayers.So family and friends think again are we ready to face the ultimate adventure in life?DEATH,so from now on, im thinking of ways to make more money(not that i need it to bring to the grave) so that my family will be well off after i died or at least pay off my debts, Keep my health in tip top conditions, pray more to ALLAH the all mighty and lastly keep loving my families till the day i die.

Trans fat to be ban in NYC

Come across this morning news in yahoo about the ban of Trans fat in NYC,what is trans fat?"Trans fats occur naturally in small quantities in meat and dairy products from ruminants. Most trans fats consumed today, however, are industrially created through partial hydrogenation of plant oils and animal fats — a chemical process developed in the early 1900s.
Unlike other fats, trans fats are neither required nor beneficial for health.
Eating trans fat increases the risk of coronary heart disease. For these reasons, health authorities worldwide recommend that consumption of trans fat be reduced to trace amounts. Trans fats from partially hydrogenated oils are generally considered to be worse than those occurring naturally."a brief description of Trans fat(Thanks WIKIPEDIA).So what can we do about this TRANS FAT?for once try other alternative cooking oil,good example will be corn oil(MAZOLA).I should check up with the MRS what cooking oil is used at home.I do hope MOH or whoever is responsible in monitoring our nation eating habit(again its an individual decision,i am what i eat,hehehe) to do spot checks on eatary outlets in our country,to ensure that they are using healthy cooking oil,especially the fast food outlets.Btw the hydrogenated oil is as the same price as the vegetable oils in our market.
