How's life so far in Kuala Lumpur ?

Have been in KL for new Project for more than 2 weeks. Still not get used to it. But one good thing is that not need face the couple in Commonwealth. Haha =) Let me jealous oh, Since my Peishan is in Shanghai leh.

  • Cough every night, about after 9.30pm, till the time I sleep. What the... not sure what's the cause. But it wont happen when I back to SG or JB. weird eh. Suspect it's because the water here that cause the problem. 
  • Not managed to sleep before 12.00am every day. Hehe. The working hour here is longer. Good? Maybe, so got more time to do my work. But, it's my first time involved in Project Delivery, need to meet deadline, meet customer, prepare document/excel sheet/presentation/minutes, etc. No chance to do this in Operations work. Challenging eh.
  • Variety of food to enjoy. No more Amoy's fixed menu. But miss the food in Amoy. When will I stationed in SG again ? not sure. no fixed date.

Good Bye Commonwealth

Oh my goodness, house lord decided to sell her house, and give us 2 months of grace period to move out from it. Grrr... So cruel for me at this crucial timing.

It is market so good ? Think so, we had once asked house lord to come to the house. Planned to ask for Rental price cut because my Peishan go to Shanghai, so there will be 3 of us sharing the rental. But she said that time the market is good, for that house, rental maybe can up to 1200 - 1300. Lucky she never add anything to our 1000 rental, grrrr, we still thinking of cutting price. Haha.

She that time got told us she got plan to sell the house and buy a new house in Thiong Bahru. But her brother Eric said that all new HDB are quite small in Singapore nowadays. So, might not go ahead with the plan. We just relieved for 2 months, they she told us to prepare to move. Who knows? Yiak.

Last time Darren mentioned over the renting in his blog, now is my turn to looking for new house. Need to discuss with Emily what's next this Friday. Still in KL now doing the new Project. Very very busy, because timing very tight, and need to take care of the Previous Project.

Bedroom Interior Design

This year just bought a house in JB, under my and my mum name. The Taman's name is Adda Heights (by Southern Gateway). Just beside my Taman now, Taman Daya.

Ok, the developer said the building will be finish constructed around end of this year. Cost about 200+K in Ringgit. One of the bedrooms going to be my and Peishan bedroom oh. Hehe. But Peishan currently in Shanghai, so she has asked me to design the bedroom.

Hmm, so what's should be the theme color ? Thinking of combination Red, White, Brown and Skyblue. Let's see some photos and pictures.

White + Green, the wall paper quite nice.3D Image. It has a nice carpet + 'inserted-style' bed. Not bad oh.
White + red + brown. Is that a carpet ? Or just that part is made by wood. the curtain really nice. But don't think will be applicable for my bedroom. Hehe.

So, some concrete plan: Carpet, white color bedsheet, LCD/Plasma TV/Monitor, some nice lights. Looking forward to it. =)

Last farewell in Integro last week, it's hold on Friday, for Mr Space. Hehe.

Very sad that he's leaving, we have been playing all the time during lunch, tea time, etc. Really sayang that no chance to work with him, as he's doing another project, else I think will be great fun.

One Man Dinner and Air Ticket to Shanghai

Space is leaving Integro =( so sad... We bought a teddy bear for him, Zenn Gan Ma got the idea. And teddy bear's name is Spacey, wearing fire fighter suit. Hahaha... Very suitable for him as he always put off the 'fire' created in a Project. =)

Reached home before 730pm today. Then read some company mails, feeling troubled. Not because of production issue, but some change request thingy. Lucky I'm still in SG coming Monday. Hope can solve it asap. Not wish to drag for so long time.

Then bath, wash clothes, prepare dinner. Because of the mails, not feeling happy or excited at all when preparing the dinner. Just lost. Hmm, since like long time I have not been in such situation. So quickly, after the dinner, investigate... So, made myself mind prepared for what should do on Monday.

Ok, everything is in my mind now. Just storm the front!

My dinner, Luncheon meat (as promised yesterday) and cabbage. Hehe. Finally the Indo dried noodle.

When preparing dried noodle, must get the noodle to soaked in cold water after cooked, then put back into hot water. So it will feel good (Q) when u bite it. Just like biting jelly. Haha.. Over exaggerated. Ok, if any asking, that girl is Victora Beckam, cause of her husband, ex-Manchester United no 7 going to develop his 'late age' career in Los Angelos, she wish to be a Movie Star there (as stated in the Mypaper free newspaper).

The air ticket ! Finally, got the air ticket to go to Shanghai. Will alight at Shanghai Pudong International Airport. Will be second time to go to China after business trip to China's Beijing last August :) I will going at 28 Sep till 7 Oct. Hope I can really enjoy it. My Peishan, I'm coming o ~

Finally we are reunion after 1 and a half years =) We made some nice joke that will let others think dirty. But we managed to turn it back to correct track. Lucky. Haha.
Ok, she is Emily la ... Flower bought by Muichoo, another girl (or lady) who left after Emily. Errr... Oh gosh, didnt manage to take any photo. Kian should has her photo in his blog.

All the best to all the person who left Integro. Actually, the ex-integro list in my Yahoo IM is increasing, over 40+ since I joined the company in Jan 2005. Terrible? Hmm... Talk about this another time.

Tomorrow (8 Jun) is Space's farewell. Again! 2 farewells in one week! Gosh. Ok, put some photos for the memorial of Space. May the Space be with you, Space. =(

Hahaha, nice ? Guess where I take it ?

What's the meal in the menu today?

Ok, Kian complained to me my blog just like another blog of Grace's sister, talking about food. Right now, the topic is still about food. Haha. Maybe next time change topic. How about talking about slimming. Hehe =)

Tonight's dinner is prepared by Emily. She told my Peishan about the dinner things. My Peishan just stop her straight away, cause she can't taste it. So poor, I really wish to prepare dinner for her. Already promised her, we will prepare a meal together when I'm going visit her in October. Yeah. Faster faster faster... Not sure whether I can get some nice food in Shanghai, then prepare a nice meal to Peishan. Hehe. I need Malaysia local food.

Jarod went to camping in Ubin. It's a leadership event. Got climbing, some programs can join. Since like, I has not been to Ubin for 5-6 years already. Wow, long time. And got some big changes told by Emily. Hope got the chance to go again. :)

So, what's tonight dinner. 'Mi Tai Mak'/'Lao Shu Fen' Soup. It's Short Rice Noodles in English. Short noodles that made of rice :) And what's inside the soup. Cabbage, crab stick, vegetarian meat and egg. Nice oh. I finished all of it, include the soup, not include the bowl. Haha.

Mine ... Look nice ?

What's the plan for tomorrow's dinner. Got the plan already. Hehe. Got cabbage, egg, and luncheon meat, should not worry so much. Haha.

Tofu in the Soup with Carrot and 'Abalone Mushroom'

Oh ? Blog about food again ? Yeah ..! Today is Wednesday. Has been preparing for dinner from Sunday till today, four days. =) I believe that home-made meal is healthy, because less oil, less salt, no Ajinomoto. And I like to cook. Dream of become chef one day, in restaurant. Emily likes to be in a Cafe.

Today, I prepared the dinner. Jarod helped to prepare the soup and white rice =p Today nearly can't think of 3rd dish. Thinking whether to put Abalone Mushroom into Soup or fried with minced pork. At the end, decided to put it in the soup. So soup got more food =p

So how about the minced pork ? standalone? since it's best companion, (which i believe) tofu is going along with Abalone Mushroom. Hehe... A bulb come out, cook it together with vegetarian meat ball. So? must make a creative dish. I fried the minced pork like meat ball. Hehe... Then put them together.

Resulted that Emily thought we having vegetarian foods today. Haha. The soup is nice, after the add-in of Abalone mushroom. Hehe. very sweet also with the carrot.

Going to have Wednesday dinner
Take a photo. So the upper left is the mixture of Real meat and Fake meat. Hahaha. Look alike eh...

Jarod going to Ubin for 3 days tomorrow. So how about our next night dinner? Let Emily think of it. Hehe. Maybe will pack food. oh no... how i wish i can cook. But need buy food. Just for 2 days, Thurs and Fri.

Oh ? Where is another pair of Spoon and fork ? Hehe ...
Minced pork with Tofu, Otah, Spinach with Carrot. Spinach very nice. Feeling like a Popeye after eating. Haha.

Cheese Tofu in Japanese Curry

Who's that? Yeah. Jarod, Emily's boyfriend. Preparing white rice for us (include me). Hehe.. So, what's today's food ? Luncheon Meat, Cabbage with Slice Carrot, Samba little fish and Cheese Tofu in Japanese Curry. Of course, the iron is not included =p

Close look. Actually, intend to put slice fish cake, fish ball and meat ball into that Japanese Curry. But all 'spoilt', got a heavy smell. Should put them into freeze area. Aiks... Wasted. Ok, all food are prepared by Emily. Very nice =)

Those are last Friday dinner. Hmm, today Emily cook again. And I burnt my finger because of hot wok cover. Grrr.. very hurt. Immediately apply Aloe Vera Gel. Ouch ouch...

Beck is really back !

Source: TeamtalkCool. Did watch the replay of the friendly match between England and Brazil on Saturday.

Really a long time never watch Beckham playing soccer, I mean for me. =p Due to his recent great form in La Liga, McClaren recalled him for the England. Got some good pin-point passes from him, but lack a bit of luck, Owen can't manage to finish it.

Really don't know why Gerrard must partner with Lampard. In this match, Gerrard did some good defense, Lampard, well, made some successful pass. Other than that, I really can't see both of them can cooperate well, like Scholes and Carrick in ManUtd. They just cant get the ball to forward. On the left, Joe Cole seem like lack of form before he injured. Not good enough in Chelsea and also England. Lucky, Shorey did help him up.

Brown, as a substitution for Captain, made a 'impact' to England. Alves, Dutch League Top scorer, nearly scored because of Brown's poor awareness. Seem like there is a limit for him to grow in ManUtd and England. Do something ...

If not of the decent form of Beckham, don't think England can get a single goal. Good luck for coming match on Wednesday. =)

Least, Greatest vs Sign, Decode in Oracle

SELECT DECODE(SIGN(30-40), -1, 30, 40) FROM DUAL;

So, what does this piece of SQL query mean?

SIGN(x) = 1 where x > 0
SIGN(x) = -1 where x < 0
SIGN(x) = 0 where x = 0

So, the above result is 30. Ok, what if 30 is not just 30 and 40 is not just 40, where 30 and 40 are very long expression. What the SQL query will look like? And you need to maintain it. Insane. And really admire previous developer's work. The query is very very long. Then just found out what he/she intend to do.

Ya, you are right, the query is to find which is the Smallest number. So is there any Function can achieve such great work ? Yes, Least and Greatest.

Finally, the query become like this:

LEAST(10, 20, 50, 70) = 10
LEAST('10', '2', '3', '7') = 10
