I had 2 phone calls while I was out today. Both callers told my bestfriend and I don't have anything better to do. Here'z the thing. Both of us didn't feel like driving. We also don't wish to get stuck in the traffic esp when we are going to enter the city during lunch. Besides all that, we wanna save some bucks too. =p

What have we done to be given such remarks? I picked her up from her house and parked at an LRT station quite in the middle of her house and mine. We took the train to KLCC and walked to Low Yat. Are you gonna call us nuts now? Go ahead. We used to walk alot alot when we were back in school. Walking from the school to LRT station is nothing and it is not even far; just about 10-15mins walk. I've managed less than 10mins too...well, itz not far and I used to walk extremely fast. Where else have I walked to? Mmm...

1. From school to a friends house in Kg. Baru.
2. From a friend's house in Damai to Ampang Park..then to my hse..multiple times.
3. From school to my house.
4. From Ampang Point to my house.
5. From an LRT station (can't remember which station) to a friend's house in TTDI.

Furthest is number 3..think it is about 15km and nearest would be number 4.

When I was back in uni, I used to walk to anywhere I wanna go to in the campus coz I've got no car...and the feeder bus sux back then (not too sure about now..). Sometimes my friends and I would go down the apartment to take a walk too...ya know, juz to enjoy the air and chat. =)
Walking helps ease my mind too.

When is the best to walk?
1. Right after it stops raining.
2. At night. Especially when it is windy. =)

What I regret about walking? I dunno how true this is but it makes my legs big. =( I talked about it with my bestfriend...looks like we both have the same opinion. = If I were to mention this to my colleagues, they might not believe it. Ruz walked? Seriously? She could? =p
Yes guys. I walked. Well, I still love walked. LEISURELY. ;) And no..I'm not interested in hiking and the likes. =p Sowie. I mall-hop from time to time too. =p

What I do while I walk? Mmm...if i'm with a friend or two, we'll talk...sometimes sing. =p all depends on the situation; can't juz sing when there's too many passerbyZ. =p Some other times, I would sing to myself...but most of the time, I do alot of thinking along the way.

Anyway, driving could sometimes increase the risk of drivers getting heart attacks or depression. Why? Too many "funny" drivers on the road to just get on our nerves. URGH! some has too much patience that the drive super slowly like that have 50hours per day. Some has no patience that they honk you to move forward even when the car in front of you is static. URGH. How smart. Guyz stop complaining about women drivers. Trust me. There are alot of funny drivers who are males out there. I've encountered many today. IT SUX!!!!!

At times like this, it is a lot better to walk in the sun. Atleast I get to walk and clear my mind. =p
Feel free to argue. I saved my petrol. Best of all, I paid 0bucks for parking today. Muahahaha

Confused Bird

Attempted to add my Twitting Board here...but the bird got a lil confused and got stucked in the header. =p The cause? I think it is my template.

Mmm...I'm quite happy where they put my Twitting Board but it is not showing quite right.
I wondered why and discovered the culprit is actually the title I put for it.

I gave up so now I'm juz gonna grab the code they have to be embedded into other sites.

Here's how I got started.
1. Deleted all the codes related to the widget they added for my Twitting Board earlier.
2. Get back to Twitter to grab the code.
3. There are 2 options; Plain HTML or the one which requires Flash 9. Well, the latter looks good. So I grabbed it.

Didn't turn out good;overlapped with my other widgets..well,maybe I could resize but it won't look as nice I gotta opt for the plain HTML one.

4. Picked colour for the Twitting Board to match my blog. Result? Itz on the right! =p

Saved your time..haven't I? =p


I dun chirp but Twitter made me. LOL!
I didn't intended to sign up but a colleague told me to subscribe to him.
I was juz there to check out what Twitter is all about and tadaa! I'm now chirping.

Itz a very simply web thingy. It is where you update what you're up to.
Yeah....sometimes updating the status on your IM and Facebook is simply not enough. =p

Another colleague of mine registered juz few seconds after I did and she ended following quite a number of the actors in Heroes. Don't tell me to name them coz I don't really know their names. :

Anyway, to those of you who wonders about this chirping thingy, click to my Twitting board.
Yes. I juz called my Twitter page a Twitting board. Those who are interested to know what their idols are up to should definitely register for an account too. ;)

It is very simple to use so you don't have to be so internet savvy to know how to use it.

- Updates on what u're currently up to.
- Change your backgroup pic with your fav. pic.
- Keep up-to-date with that your friends are up to...well,not juz friends but anybody (they gotta be on Twitter though. =p)
- Send/Receive messages

If you have any probs chirping, feel free to shout out here. =p

Other features?
Mmm...lemme see. It enables you to integrate ur Twitter onto Facebook, mySpace, Blog and Typepad. Others? They provide HTML codes where you can just paste into your widget/site/....

Twitter on Facebook; checkin' if updates done on Facebook would update my Twitterboard on

Oh no! Not yet I guess. :

Anyway, since I see my friends updates in the pic above, it shows that updates done on would trigger updates into Twitter on Facebook. So...1st test failed...2nd test passed.

Twitter on Blogspot? You'll know if it works if it appears on the right-pane of this blog and...I plan to put it on Ruz's Bookshelves too. :) Will see if it is relevant of not....

Snow White

What makes enemies better than our friends? Well, they tell the truth. If you stink, they tell you, "You stink!". If they think your hair is ugly,they tell you "Your hair is ugly." What bestfriends can do to outdo enemies is to tell the truth is a better way. It might hurt a lil to get your weakness pointed out but it is good to know than not knowing at all. If you do not know what is wrong, you won't improve. When you don't improve, you go nowhere. Be it in work or school or even life.

I would like to thank a friend who was being truthful when I asked "What do people at work think about me?". He is not my bestfriend and we had only gotten to know each other better recently when we happen to hang out. I told him to answer me and don't worry about mentioning names coz it is not important at all. The point is to know how people sees you and know what your weakness is and work from there. =)

I REALLY despise those who go behind others' back and talk about their weaknesses. If you this that person is not doing something well, go over and talk to him and maybe even suggest how he could improve. If you go to everyone in the entire world and talk bad about this guy, it won't help him at all. You are making it worse for him. He doesn't know what he is not doing right. He thinks he is fine. He thinks you are fine with him. Then you went around telling everybody there's something wrong with him and make him look bad in everyone's eyes. Tell me if this is fair and professional at all.K? If you think it is, put yourself in this person's shoes and see if you answer is still yes. If it is, lemme tell u this; THERE IS SOMETHING VERY WRONG WITH YOU. YOU HAVE NO HEART. YOU ARE PLAIN DUMB and RATIONAL and PROFESSIONAL is not in your vocab. There you have it. I'm being a friend here.

When you look into the mirror, you wanna see yourself. If you see a super model with a clean face, it definitely doesn't help you groom yourself. You won't know you hair is a mess and your face is like the surface of the moon. Would you like your mirror to do that? Or would you like your mirror to show your ugly friend's face instead just so that you can criticize her? =p

When we look into the mirror everyday, we see only our physical. To know how we are with other people and how well we are doing in life, we need a special mirror; Friends and Colleagues. Well, this mirror will only function well if these groups of people functions well. If they don't we are doomed...worst of all, we do not know we are doomed. Mirrors do not show others your flaws. They reflect your flaws in your eyes for you to improve.

B*thin' around doesn't help. Don't believe me? Read the book titled "Rule of Work". There are 10 main rules with some other sub-rules. One of it is "Don't B*tch".

To those who works with me or happen to be around me and think there is something about me that I should improve or change to be a better person, feel free to drop me a mail or nudge me on IM.K? Be a friend. Don't pretend to be one. Thanks.

Lemme stress this again. Talking bad about someone behind their backs won't help a person to improve and it is definitely NOT PROFESSIONAL. SO if you happen be a leader or supervisor, more the reason why you should talk to your subordinates and tell them what they are doing wrong. more professional. K? Btw, before you think a person is not doing well, why don't you look into the mirror and analyze why you think this person is not doing well and ask yourself if you have done anything to help this person.

p/s: I'm not angry. I just believe things can be better if we really care. Especially if that someone is a friend.

One centimetre away

Is this a month of quizzes or am I really that bored? LOL.
Anyway, I've seen quite a number of friends posted what their birthday said about them.
Honestly, I ignored it many times already but...somehow now,I just did it. Why? Well, I was doing the last question of an online training...when I clicked Next, the thing just hangs there...URGH! Why is it so damn cruel??? Why can't it let me finish atleast one training a day???!?!?!?!? See! I usually reach my objectives well if I do not rely on anything else....hahaha

Nice meetin' u

This is juz gonna be a short one but I seriously think some ppl really need to know how to handshake. =p

Met a guy over a Townhall Meeting juz now...didn't really get his name but gosh...his did the bonecrusher handshake...ouch! I almost told him "Hey,that's a bit too hard...loosen up a lil bit, will ya?..Plus,I'm a girl...i believe my bones and all are pretty soft compared to urs...and no!I do not have the strength to match urs.TQ."

Well, he's not the first one who crushed my bones. Atleast he's a guy. A colleague of mine, who is a girl...gave me that as well...When I first met her, she totally crushed my bones. OUCH! After sometime knowing her, I told her that she shouldn't shake people's hands like she does. Here's what she said. "Ruz, it wasn't a bonecrusher. It is a firm handshake. A lot of people told me that about my handshake. They said it is firm." *siiggghhhh* Firm won't make ppl like me go OUCH!....

I've also met ppl who gave handshakes like a deadfish. Gosh! If you're not interested to shake hands, then don't! Keep your hands by your sides. Smile =) and juz acknowledge that person. End of story. Urgh....

Both bonecrushers and deadfishes should mate up to have a nice handshake; FIRM.

Mirror Image

Did a lil personality quiz online...well,juz for fun. It was shared by a fwen;

The results :

Your view on yourself:

Other people find you very interesting, but you are really hiding your true self. Your friends love you because you are a good listener. They'll probably still love you if you learn to be yourself with them. is this possible? I don't hide...well,maybe I hide my sarcasm and my not-interested face sometimes.Muahaha

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You like serious, smart and determined people. You don't judge a book by its cover, so good-looking people aren't necessarily your style. This makes you an attractive person in many people's eyes.

Absolutely true. Good-looking people are just like trophies...they juz make a good display but they barely serve any other purpose except collecting dust. No offense but brains and capabilities are crucial...oh.yeah!Cleanliness too...and loyalty..and honesty...i could go on and on and i better put a capital fullstop here. :p

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person. =)

The seriousness of your love:

You like to flirt and behave seductively. The opposite sex finds this very attractive, and that's why you'll always have admirers hanging off your arms. But how serious are you about choosing someone to be in a relationship with?

Ooopps!But anyway, no admirers. SERIOUSLY. How serious am I? On the rank of 1 to 10...My pick is 11. VERY SERIOUS. =p

Your views on education

Education is very important in life. You want to study hard and learn as much as you can.

=) I need buckz...anybody wanna sponsor? I wanna go to Carnegie Mellon...plzzzzz I wanna do their MBA together with Masters in IT. Would be superb! *siigghhh* I WANNA GO!

The right job for you:

You have plenty of dream jobs but have little chance of doing any of them if you don't focus on something in particular. You need to choose something and go for it to be happy and achieve success.

Very true. Keywords : Management, Database, Test, Music, Writing, Business, Baking..........

How do you view success:

You are afraid of failure and scared to have a go at the career you would like to have in case you don't succeed. Don't give up when you haven't yet even started! Be courageous.

I try my very best to avoid failure. I see cause and effects. I know what I don't wanna see and go through. Well, be courageous? Mmm..there are times when I would do things you don't think I'd ever do but when I feel like doing it...I'll juz do don't be surprised...and don't tell me I didn't warn u. =p

What are you most afraid of:

You are concerned about your image and the way others see you. This means that you try very hard to be accepted by other people. It's time for you to believe in who you are, not what you wear.

Gotta feel comfortable and look fine. I can juz not be pretty but I wanna look presentable. Messy is not in my vocab...and I dun want it to be a synonym to me...I mayb try to be accepted but if I'm not I could be on my own; Eagles fly solo...remember? ;)

Who is your true self:

You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.

Couldn't agree less.

Don't ask me why I bother answering such could be becoz I'm bored or I'm too lazy to do anything techy and here'z another one..itz pretty close to 100% true. Did it at

Here is the analysis: (Ouch!)

  1. You've got great self-confidence and you're full of charm. Most guys who get to know you will be attracted to you. You are far from sweet and proper; your intriguing personality fascinates them. Most guys find it easy to fall for a girl like you. (LIAR!)
  2. You really care about other people's feelings and are quite serious about the issues that affect your life. You are sincere, and your concern for the well-being of others makes many people want to be your friend. (I'm a REAL softie inside...I REALLY AM.)
  3. You are a bright, cheerful and bubbly person. You are thoughtful and considerate, and like to have fun. Everybody feels comfortable around you because of your pleasant nature. When you walk into a room, people's eyes are likely to be drawn to you because of your charm.( Mm...charm?Bright?Mmm...If itz REALLY true,itz nice. )
  4. Your peers think of you as a fun person, but sometimes you can be a little irresponsible. You can be somewhat childish, and can try to ignore the fact that you will one day need to really grow up and be a mature adult! Perhaps you could start reading good books; they might help you look at the world in a different light. You do want to be taken seriously, right? (Started reading SERIOUS books already.)
  5. Your boyfriend thinks that you are a real doll but this is not a totally positive thing. Sometimes you can be a bit too sweet, and come across as being helpless. If you're like this too frequently, your boyfriend and other people are likely to get tired of you having to rely on them all the time. *siigghhh*
You desire a love that will last forever. You are quite serious about finding this type of love, and that's why you think carefully about the men that you meet before deciding whether you could really love them. You don't just develop a crush on someone overnight: you look at a person's personality and other aspects of their life before deciding to form an attachment. If a guy doesn't meet your expectations, you would rather be alone. Your love has to be perfect. Be careful though, you could be missing out on some worthy relationships because your standards are so high. Mmm...... *sigh*

You are always cheerful and charming. You never get too serious with people when they're around, but when you are alone, you think carefully about what they have said. That's because you don't want anyone to see you being too somber. Your personality means you have a lot of friends and you are often the center of attention. Many people who fall into this category become artists and movie stars, perhaps fame could be yours in the future as well.

Scissors Paper Stone and a Candle?

I've been in KLCC since Dec 12, 2008. See if there will be anything coming in by end of April. Yes. I said April. LOL. What have I done here so far? Mmm...I did quite a number of trainings online. I came up with a book blog after a month. I.....mmmmm can't really recall. =p

Anyhow, it is time to cut down ALL unnecessary expenses. I quit shopping. So no more books, perfumes, accessories, clothes, handbags, CDs and gawd knows what else. Everyday I still hafta spend atleast 10bucks. *siiiggghhh* 7bucks for parking...the rest on food. For the past 2 weeks, I've spent less than 5bucks for lunch. However, this week is pretty impossible. Yesterday, my colleague told me to accompany her for lunch coz she wasn't feeling very well and we had lunch with a manager and 2 other people. Today, 2 of my colleagues are coming over to KLCC so expect to spend on lunch....and there goes my plan to eat light food. *siiiggghhhh*

Today's my brother's bday...he wanted a body brush...of all things eh? Then last nite he told me to get it as his bday present...well, itz not that expensive but I'm cutting down all that i i guess i'll see how... :|

Anything nice coming up soon? Well, it depends. I've got quite a few stuff in my hands which IF i get it done as expected i can earn some bucks and settle my electone loan with my dad and of coz my credit card bill. LOL. Another thing is....mmm a secret...more like a surprise maybe...well,it will be nice IF it really happens. No worries. Will definitely broadcast it when it happens. ;) For those who knows about it, keep it low coz i dunno when it will happen; scheduling issues. Not work related though. ;)

I'm supposed to be in a mid of an online training now but i dun feel like reading too much techy stuff. I wanted to update my other blog but i'm not too sure i can crack out gewd sentences and ideas with this current mood im in. Anyhow, i think the topic would be "Ebooks vs Physical Books". Could blab about it anytime...just prefer to do it in a better mood to ensure better I have more good points and better sentence construction. ;)

Can't recall when was the last time I updated this; was extremely bz after the last post. When I was no longer bz, I guess I sorta forgot I've got a space 'ere.Hihi Anyway, I started another blog solely for books. Call me nerd if you wish but that word isn't a real word...More like a slang incase you haven't know. =p

Here I am. Back to where I started blogging just that this time, this space of mine will be opened to all. Deep down, I'm still quite unsure if it should be publicly public I meant my bunch of friendz out there. My bookblog is more than public. LOL. Itz opened to all Booklovers and if you're not one, you can still drop by. Who knows you might fall in love with books too. ;)

I've juz changed the template of this blog with a hope it could accomodate more stuff. Stuff I've got on my list are :

1. Wishlist
A list of stuff i'd love to have *hint hint*

2. Friendz' Blogz
This will be under the Blogroll section on the right pane.

3. New Visitor Counter
Need a new one to match this new template and of coz to start new. ;)

4. Calendar
Maybe one which could highlight which date contains which post and stuff...

5. QuickLinks
To save time from typing out sites I normally visit.

6. Favourite Websites
Sites I like to go to...what's the difference between this and item no. 5? Well, this list contains stuff I don't normally click in not something I visit on daily basis. ;) If i were to dump all under item no. 5, item no.5 will be super NO. =p

7. Tag Clouds
Found 'da code to do it but if I'm too lazy, I'll juz settle with the Label widget which comes with Blogger.

Juz for the fun of it. =p

9. Blog-Related
List of sites related to blog stuff like tips and tricks, templates and etc.

OUCH! So many stuff....maybe I'll need to rethink some stuff IF it makes my space here looks so messy. Anyway, let'z juz hope I could keep things coming in.

You might ask why don't I just have one blog and dump everything in. Well, here's my reason. BookBlog is solely for BOOKS and Books-related matters only and itz super public. I usually dump my links to it wherever I feel appropriate. As for this one, it is still pretty discreet. Think only 2 ppl knows about this unless some of you guyz happen to stumble upon this one...then that's a different story. Well, this is the area where I blab about stuff...stuff which are personal, stuff which are stuck in my head or heart juz coz sometimes Idon't wanna argue too much or maybe it is just not too appropriate to be spoken out loud. Despite being a pretty loud person, I swear I'm shy in some ways. *looks down onto the ground* Some stuff I "scribble" here are for myself btu anyway,if you wanna read and have some funny thoughts..maybe you could just keep it to yourself. Well, you get here on your own...don't u? =p
