The world’s largest floating book fair, the MV Doulos, which has over 6,000 titles and 500,000 books on board, is visiting Malaysia again. The vessel is scheduled to arrive at Port Klang today and will be opened to the public at the Star Cruise terminal from July 6 to 31.
The book fair will be opened by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Dr Maximus J. Ongkilli on July 6. The books cover a wide range of subjects such as science, sports, hobbies, cookery, arts and philosophy.
Every year, more than 200 young people join the all-volunteer crew and staff (currently there are 320 volunteers on board from various countries) for one to two years of training and cross-cultural exposure. Since 1977, more than 18 million visitors have been on board the vessel, which has travelled to 102 countries and visited over 500 ports.
I have personally went on board (twice in-fact) many years ago when i was a kid and its an experience!! you should give it a try.

then some may say that the *body* that's tired after a 9-5 work...for those in the office all day, you sit at your desk most of the time maybe and you walk (in total) 30 minutes a day...and how is that true again? double hmmm...
so another study being made for this *duh*, and they find that its mostly a pyschological thing...*is it?!*. why you may ask...being human, we always do things the we like to do in the *morning* and we leave the unpleasant stuffs to the *afternoon*. we'll feel drained because we are either pissed, stressed up, unmotivated, etc. doing this stuffs and we tend to bring this *feel* back home, too. and thats why you feel tired everyday after work - all pyscological.
the same study then suggested that you do all the *yucky* stuffs in the morning and do the stuffs you *like* in the afternoon....well it might just work..no harm trying it out!!

what i see...i remember
what i do...i understand
one of the principles of better learning is to improve our memory skills (i need this badly!!). Research has shown that memory can improve as long as the brain is used creatively and constructively.

A mail was sent out by the facility guys warning us a fire drill will take place this week and advice us where were assembly point, don't use the elevator, etc. The thing is most people knew it was going happen today and at 10.30am *wow!! what info* & I was one of the them :-D. We being heroes took the elevator down 15 minutes before it happened, just *lepaking*, reading papers and all that. To my surprise, it wasn't only me who found out about this drill but a whole lot of other people as well...hmmm...and everyone was downstairs *lepaking* to beat the *traffic jam* at the staircase and not forgeting the sweat too.
The question is "is the objective met for the fire drill?" to me it defeats the purpose since so many already knew of this *suppose surprised* drill, where you never know when a real fire may happen...yeah yeah i know i'm one of the culprits...but hey its better than sweating like a horse ;-P

The first thing to do is to check for and safeguard yourself from being afflicted by secret poison arrows that are created by sharp, pointed and straight physical objects that might inadvertently be aimed directly at where you are sitting. These can be the edge of a filing cabinet or an overhead beam inadvertently placed directly above you. Or it can be the corner of a wall directly opposite you or someone's straight divider. Poison arrows can be a colleague's desk edge, her cactus plant, a pillar directly in front of you, and just about anything that appears to be threatening your peace of mind.
In any office, especially one that is basically too small and seems crammed and untidy, there are bound to be harmful poison arrows near where you sit that bring bad Chi towards you. These are sure to hurt you while you are working, sitting or doing anything at all, your mind on other things, oblivious about what may be silently hurting you. So you need to open your eyes and look hard around you for anything that might potentially be harming you.

So back to the *sick* thingy again...as i was saying, i first went to the car workshop, the brakes dun feel right and they were leaking( i think!), the foreman confirmed it, it din leak from the calipers but from the pump instead, they suspect the seal is loose after so many years and would need to replace that. how much ah for the seal? 80 bucks?! just for some rubber seal? oh it comes with the brake piston and everything.....i see. change lor...need more brake fluid too? need to breath the brake lines lar....so plus the workmanship it came to 140 bucks...*sigh*

Ever wonder whats with this boxes and numbers?
its a new craze...just "fill in the grid so that every row, every column, and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 through 9."
There's no math involved, only has numbers and
nothing has to add up to anything else. You solve the puzzle with reasoning and logic. :-)
It's fun. It's challenging. It's addictive!
you can play it for free on NST online www.nst.com.my
