Miss Beh's Birthday

Miss Beh is my mum. 
My dad use to call her that (cute)


It was her birthday so we went out for a casual dinner at Boston 又一城. We didn't know where else to dine at. 
[ In future, I must bring them to eat something really nice when I can afford it ]
Everyone was there except for my elder sister. Too bad.

Without Eh-Ser-Li

The Dears

I really HATE Boston. I went there twice and I'm so so so not going back.
The reasons:

1.  Their food sucks to the max. I can't even finish them.
2.  The restaurants are so unorganized 
3. Messy & uncomfortable environment .
3.  STUPID staffs. 

Why stupid? I handed a birthday cake to them and asked them to bring out when I signal them.
This is very common. Every waiter/waitress knows what to do.
BUT this Boston people..........when i signaled them, they put the cake on the table...unseal, unopened. 
Singing birthday song is a credit but opening the box and lighting the candles is a must!

I seriously felt fire inside me when I saw them bringing the cake out. The cake was inside the box and the box was still inside a plastic bag.
WTFook, spoiled our surprise for Miss Beh.

See, we had to light the candles IN FRONT OF MY MUM, by OURSELVES! 
Blame myself la, next time go to a better place. 

♥ I'm sure she made wishes for the family 



Then, we walked around the place.
I realized I forced all brothers to snap 
"Look-like-couple" pictures with me.
I'm a Bin-Tai sister.


 Mum & daughters 

♥ Hehe 

Nothing is better than seeing your family & your partner being friends
It's rare & hard to get
I can't accept myself not having it
Because I love my family very much

Lepisosteus, half fish, half alligator

The Lepisosteus is a primitive species of fish that can only be found in rivers and water lakes tranquilas of central America (Mexico and Guatemala). Voracious natural predators, possess the prolongated bodies and thick scales and can arrive up to 45 kg. Fish-lizards or fish-alligators are called popularly due the similarity of the snout between the two animal species.


The fish-lizard is a sort of four species of primitive ósseos fish, enters oldest than still they exist in the present time. They already were here when the human beings we arrive the Land and possibly still are when we will be extinct. This species was introduced in Thailand and caused a serious ecological disequilibrium.

Hui Ling is Going To Australia!


Everyone is so busy with final year project this semester.
We thought we hadn't hung out together for a long time already
and so we went to makan together. 


My lovely girl friends 
(only LY sempat tukar pose! pro!)

Ah Ling!

One thing that TGI waiters need to learn is HTTPFC 101
[ How To Take Picture for Customers ]
Took 100 times already my face is still blur. WHY ME!

Should let Gan & Nisha sit together more often! Haha!

Look at the pose! Can see that they are my friends.
=D

Too bad they are lesbian

But I still  ♥ them

The "No make up also pretty"

The new friends! XD

101% our outings are Noisy, Crazy & Happy 

I got gravy on my white dress
=(


Bye~

Secret: Hui Ling is not going to anywhere. We lied to the waiter to have fun only. 
Fun because they usually celebrate birthday and farewell for customers.
They sing in group and give free brownies. 

We didn't take anything at the end la, we were too full =P

Cairo Crisis


Cairo is capital city of Egypt, and it is the country that has a great history of Pharaohs. Recently, Cairo has been going through a major disaster and with flames of burning police vehicles and the headquarters of President Mubarak's National Democratic Party headquarters lighting up the Cairo night sky, Friday, as protesters defied a curfew, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke briefly in Washington on events in Egypt. She began by urging the Egyptian authorities to restrain the security forces that are cracking down on protesters, but also urged demonstrators to refrain from violence. "These protests show that there are deep grievances in Egyptian society, and violence won't make them go away," she said. Here is video to show you Hillary Clintons statement:-

The End of Torchwood and Doctor Who, The Lady Killer, and SOCOM Fail.

*
TV: This has been a big week for TV viewing at our house. Within the span of a few days, we finished watching all available Torchwood and Doctor Who episodes, and we are now in a holding pattern for the new stuff.

Argh.

Also, brief thoughts:

*

>Torchwood: Children of Earth

Wow, where to begin with this one?


I suppose the first thing that needs to be said is that it is absolutely deserving of all the praise it's gotten from everyone I know. This five-episode series was just stellar from start to finish, and had so many rich moments that I feel more than comfortable saying it's probably one of the finest things I've ever seen on television.

Without getting into spoilers, I will say that the ‘children’ in the title is meant very literally in the plot. As a parent myself, I find that I am growing more and more sensitive to programs that deal with child-related trauma, and in this program, there's lots. However, rather than being strictly for shock value, I did feel as though the harsher scenes really led to some deep thinking and good discussions afterwards. Honestly, I don't think a program of this sort would even air in America, so I'm grateful that the BBC seems to be much more lenient and open in terms of what's considered acceptable viewing.

That said, think I'm a little emotionally scarred. There are a few images from this program that were instantly burned into my mind, and even thinking about them right now makes me feel a bit distressed. A handful of moments were utterly horrific, and I have a feeling that I won't be forgetting those anytime soon.


My own sensitivities aside, the plot was excellent, the quality of acting was great, and I was quite pleased with the way the writers took the time to explore the character of Jack Harkness more than they had in the previous two seasons. As a character who is immortal and has already lived for several hundred years, I've often felt as though his potential was largely left untapped as the Torchwood team chased each monster-of-the-week. Jack really took center stage towards the end of Children, though, and there was some phenomenal depth on display.

Kudos to everyone involved with Children of Earth, it was heartbreakingly outstanding.

>Doctor Who, Season Five

So, the new Doctor -- love him. Matt Smith does a fantastic job, and I am 100% on board with his portrayal of everyone's favorite Time Lord. The Doctor's new companion, Amy Pond? Eh, not so much. She's certainly all right, but I find myself not connecting with her, and I think Karen Gillan’s acting style feels a little flat to me.


In terms of the season itself, it was generally good. There was certainly a dramatic shift towards increased production values and tone, which was quite a contrast compared to most of the Tennant episodes. It was very appropriate that the writers sort of said goodbye to that era and started fresh, though.

However. there were a few moments I didn't care for. A big one was the way the rules surrounding the evil Stone Angels seemed to get tossed out the window (‘Blink’ is one of my favorite episodes, mind) and I also didn't care for the underworld adventures with the Silurians. That two-parter could have been condensed down to one episode, and the Silurians themselves were too human for my taste. They didn't even have reptilian pupils, and I'd like someone to explain to me why the females had breasts.

Still, a good season overall.

As for the season finale? Not so good. I have to admit I wasn't really a fan of the running ‘crack in the universe’ concept, and the way it tied into Amy Pond failed to resonate. Worse, I felt as though the writers took far too many shortcuts and gave viewers things that just didn't make sense. Granted, Doctor Who can’t even remotely be called hard science fiction, but you can only fudge things so much before suspension of disbelief just falls apart. For example, the events surrounding the Pandorica were complete crap, and I nearly did a spit-take when the Doctor made his comment about extrapolating the state of the universe from a few particles.

Although i'm a wee bit sour right now, don't get me wrong -- I'm still very much a Doctor Who fan,and still very much looking forward to what comes next. Also, it's worth mentioning that GameCritics will be hosting a special episode of the podcast centering solely on Doctor Who. Look for more information on that soon.

Music: I don't tend to talk about music a lot on this blog for a few reasons, but primarily because I feel as though the vocabulary needed to do a decent music review is an entirely different set of words than the ones that are used to break down videogames. I hate feeling as though I can't do justice to something that I like, but in this case I will make an exception.


The wife picked up ‘The Lady Killer” by Cee-Lo Green, and it's a fantastic album from start to finish. It's one of those rare discs that you can pop in (or queue up on your iPod) and just let play without having to skip over any ‘dud’ tracks. That's a pretty rare thing in my opinion, but I love it when it happens.

Although Cee-Lo first made a name for himself with hip-hop outfit Goodie Mob, he's been shifting styles with other projects, most famously the Gnarls Barkley St. Elsewhere album. The Lady Killer takes a cue from those vocals and infuses its songs with influences from Prince, early Motown, Earth, Wind & Fire, and a number of others. It has a strong R&B vibe from the era when R&B actually meant R&B and not whatever it currently represents. That's an extremely good thing in my book.

If I had to give The Lady Killer a rating, it would certainly be a 10/10 to my ear.

Games: I recently attended a Sony-sponsored media event featuring the PS3's  SOCOM 4, but to be perfectly frank, I didn't see enough of interest to do a full-length piece.

Meh.
The game is another military-themed shooter with little to differentiate it from any other one, as far as I can tell. It had more of a run-and-gun vibe than I was expecting, but I quickly grew bored with it and ended up spending the rest of the time chatting to fellow journos.

On display and accessible for use were both the Move controller, as well as a 3D TV and accompanying set of special glasses. I gave both a try, and came away thoroughly unimpressed.

As one of my fellow journalists commented at the time, isn't the whole concept of the Move that the motion controls are supposed to be easy to use and feel natural? I had quite a bit of difficulty coming to grips with it, and often found myself pointing straight up at the sky, or struggling to perform basic actions. With the Move, I got picked off by enemies multiple times in a row and quickly grew frustrated. Switching back to a regular controller, I blew through the level with little problem. Suffice it to say, I wasn't exactly motivated to run out and pick up a Move to use at home.

You really want to wear these all the time playing in 3D?
The 3D TV was just as impressive, by which I mean, not. Turning the feature on, I noticed that colors were washed out and that things on-screen were not nearly as sharp and distinct as they were when playing in normal mode. My eyes got tired after a few minutes, and the 3D effect was not only not convincing, but added absolutely nothing to the experience. In fact, it was actually worse, since the graphics were much better running in standard fashion.

I'm not quite sure who Sony is trying to sell these things on, but it's sure as hell not me. If this is the kind of performance people can expect from Move and 3D displays, then the marketing people in charge of the products have got their work cut out for them. No thanks.

The Most Fashionable Cocktail Dress Patterns of 2011

2010 along with the fashion statements made then is now history. Enter 2011, which brings with it a fresh look, bold new colors and plenty of excitement.


Everyone has heard of the LBD or the Little Black Dress. 2011 redefines traditions to LWD or the Little White dress. White is ruling the ramps and the Red Carpets in 2011. It has officially taken over as the new black. Other shades that are noticeable is the fascination towards nudes and pinks. For those opting for a splash of color, deep greens are the way to go. Catherine Zeta Jones and Angelina Jolie splashed into 2011 with their gorgeous green cocktail dresses at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards.


In terms of patterns, mid thigh cocktail dresses are sure to sizzle the place up and are quite a favorite. The eggplant cocktail dress sported by Drew Barrymore is also drawing attention. Lace and chiffon are here to say along with full skirts and empire waists. See some new styled cocktail dresses.

Incredible the fossil

It seems the Predator, that foreigner who hunts Arnold Schwarzenegger in the forest. But he is harmless límulo, or crab-horseshoe, one of the animals most strange of the Land. With espinhuda its carapaça, it survived the diverse extinções in mass and is one of the species oldest of the world, with more than 500 million years. When the dinos had appeared, it already were ancião. As if it sees, the horseshoe is a fossil living creature.

Which the secret of as much success? Among others things, it eat of everything, but also it can pass one year without eating. It does not have natural enemies and it supports extremities of temperature and salinity. In 1967, it relieved until Nobel: its visual receivers and optic nerve had helped to disclose as the vision functions.

Currently, its blood is used for the pharmaceutical industry and NASA. Agency uses the space it to locate and to exterminar bacteria in its sounding leads, so that they do not contaminate other planets. It is possible that Mars in an attempt is sent to detect life there.

Although the name, the horseshoe is not a crab nor is considered a crustacean. Its four species - that east and Asian Southeast occur in the American coast - form an exclusive classroom of filo arthropod, the merostomata. E, if you to find a horseshoe in the beach, do not need to run away. Although to arrive more than half the meter and to have six pairs of claws, it he does not pinch. The horseshoe can scare, but he is harmless as a horse. Sea horse, clearly.



Lesson of anatomy
The duplex crab-ferraduraem
Eyes

Eight on and two under (indicated in the image to the right), of different types. In the dark one, its visual sensitivity increases 1 million of times. Enxergam in ultraviolet

Carapaça

Greaters to each exchange of carapaça are 25%. They become adult the 10 years, after 16 exchanges of skin. The females, greaters, can reach 60 centimeters and live 19 years

Mouth

Body is in the way it, between the legs. Structures remembering combs help in the chew. The animal eats of earthworms and clams the seaweed

Legs

They are six pairs, all with claws. The first one serves to place food in the mouth. Others four serve to walk and to chew. The last pair pushes the crab ahead

Tail

In sting form, it is not a weapon. Its function is to serve toggle. If the crab to capotar, uses it to desvirar itself. She is rigid and funny as a helix

Genital

Eggs or sperm are under of this covering. The males if grasp a female, forming one “trenzinho”. In the sand, the female digging nests and puts 300 eggs in each. The males liberate sperm on of them and the nest is covered

Blood

It is blue and it contains copper - and not iron, as ours - to carry oxygen. The scientists use the substance to purificar vaccines. E the animal does not die exactly after “donating” one terço of its blood

Gills

Beyond used breathing, they function at the same time as paddles. The animal nothing upside-down.

Dream date with Freddie Mercury's Moustache

A Two Worlds II Giveaway, The NGP Appears, and Some Torchwood Talk

*


Games: It's been a while since I had a contest here at Coffeecola, and seeing how I’m enjoying Two Worlds II as much as I am, this seems like the perfect time to rectify that. So, thanks to GameCritics.com and the wonderful people at Southpeak Games, I've got a 360 copy of TW2 to give away to one lucky reader.



How do you win it?

Post a comment here and tell me what the worst RPG you’ve ever played is, and why.

The more descriptive, the better, and bonus points if it makes me laugh out loud. The winner will be drawn at random from everyone who enters, and the lucky duck’s name will be announced here early next week.

If you're even vaguely thinking about maybe playing this game, go ahead and enter... it's definitely one of the most impressive redemption efforts I've seen in quite some time, and it's a totally enjoyable adventure in its own right -- if you can get it for free here, hey, why not?

(Oh, and if you don't win? Buy it anyway!)

*

Games: So it took a few hours off of Twitter tonight, and when I got back, my feed was absolutely exploding with talk about the announcement of the NGP – Sony’s next-generation successor to the PSP. This information is literally minutes old at the time I'm writing this, so I'm going to reserve most of my thoughts for later.

…However, I will say that I could not be happier that someone at Sony R&D finally realized the catastrophic error of their ways and added a second stick to the hardware. I mean seriously, how did the PSP ever get out the door with just one in the first place? Additionally, although I know that neither franchise is very popular here in the states, the announcement of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd and a new Yakuza title both got my attention immediately. Between the two of those titles, that's probably something like 300 hours of play right there…

Anyway, I'm rambling on. No further comment at the moment, but you can click on over to the good people at GameFocus to get a quick run-down of the NGP’s tech specs.

TV: The wife and I recently finished the first two seasons of Torchwood, and without any spoilers, I will say that the "series finale" was a little emotional… I wish I could go into it further, but I would hate to ruin anything for those of you who haven't watched the show yet.


Anyway, it's very true that the writing was often hit-or-miss and could be quite inconsistent in terms of characterization at times, but we still really enjoyed the show regardless. In fact, it's a little sad to know that there isn't much left for us to actually watch. Well, at least not right now, anyway.

(On a similar note, we're also getting perilously low on unwatched Doctor Who episodes as well… it may be time to start watching some of the old stuff!!)

At the moment, the only thing left available to us is the “Children of Earth” five-part miniseries and the thing that sucks is that it's really, really good. In fact, although we haven't completed all five episodes yet, what we've seen so far has definitely been some of the best Torchwood overall. Tight scripting, plenty of action, and lots of twists and turns -- this is great TV.

It's really a shame that the earlier installments weren't up to this same level, frankly. From the beginning, I felt as though the series had not lived up to its full potential, but Children of Earth is going a long way towards making up for that. Hopefully the new crop of episodes currently being filmed as a co-production of the BBC and Starz will be of a similar quality -- after all, if there's one thing the world needs, it's more quality time with Jack Harkness.

Singularidades extraordinary of usual animals: sanguessuga.

A shorter and made right description of sanguessuga is not selling of ambulance, nor absorb-blood, much less sticky vampire. The made right description shortest and is: barometer that it bites and already I go to explain why. Despite sanguessugas seems basically all equal ones, in the reality 650 known species exist that go more than since miniature until the 45 centimeters of length.


All sanguessugas are divided in 34 segments. E attention: each segment has its proper “brain”. The segment of the head contains a simple structure of two lobes, while the remain has a group of neurons called ganglion. However, although as much unfolding of brains, the truth is that sanguessugas does not have many neurons: only 15.000. The brain of a bee, for example, has 95,000).

Why we cannot call sanguessugas absorbs-sangues? Simply because few species absorb blood, despite all are carnivorous and despite the ones that absorb blood do not know what they are making: they eat during one followed hour and they increase between 5 and 10 times its original size.

When they finish with the satiated supper, sanguessugas costumam to leave as test of its mordisco a wound with form of Y. Ademais, the wounds bleed very, up to 10 hours, because the saliva of sanguessuga contains anaesthetic and hirudina, an anticoagulant. Stranger is that although everything, the bites of sanguessugas do not donate. In way that if some day to feel some of them grudada in its body, does not try to pull out it force (burning or playing salt), duly warned that it regurgitates and it provokes an infection; the best one measured is to wait that if sacie and frees by itself.

In 1799, the troops of Napoleão in Sinai had drunk water infested with sanguessugas that they had grasped themselves to the interior walls of the noses, mouths and the throats of the soldiers. Hundreds of them had died for asphyxia.

However, sanguessugas can pass up to 6 months without feeding itself.

In century XIX they were used with frequency in medicine to carry through bleedings. In they do not go, France more than imported 42 million them only during 1833. Therefore the species arrived at the side of the extinguishing. Currently also they are used in the alternative medicine in the units of burnt and aesthetic surgery to drain blood and for its anticoagulating properties.

Why sanguessugas can be defined as barometers? Because the change of the atmospheric pressure makes with that the water where they swim dissolves little oxygen very, what makes with that they are obliged to go up to the surface, functioning as well as a prognosticador of storms.

In fact, George Merryweather constructed one of these prophetic, one elaborated barometer with sanguessugas, that he was presented in the Great Exposition of London of 1851. The machine consisted of 12 bottles that contained water of rain and one sanguessuga. To the measure that a storm if approached, sanguessuga went up for the pass of the bottle and made a bell to sound. “Ding Dong, catches its umbrellas”.

Why male spiders die after the sex?

The reason depends on the species - and it is not excessively to remember that this does not happen with all they. “It has about 35 a thousand species of spider and the behavior of many still is unknown”, says Irene Knysak, director of the laboratory of arthropods of the Butantan Institute. The caranguejeira, for example, can conclude cópula with the elimination of the male for serviz it, 60 days later, to the just-born younglings. Yes, during the first slap-up meal of its lives the small ones are empanturram with the proper father. Already the widower-black, coitada, caught fame unjustly. If the sex many times takes chosen its to the last sigh, affirms Irene, is for an accidental question: the reproductive agency of it can fall when it is pulled out quickly of inside of the female. After that it comes the extreme loss of hemolinfa (equivalent to our blood) and the death. The female of the aurantia Argiope also would be innocent, in accordance with researchers of the universities of Concord (Canada) and California (U.S.A.). It has suspicion of that the male if commits suicide during cópula, therefore is entalado in the female, thus forming a type of chastity belt and preventing that other galas intervene with its hatch. Its rivals do not save efforts to remove it, but they are rare the ones that get success.

Yes, during the first slap-up meal of its lives the small ones are empanturram with the proper father. Already the widower-black, coitada, caught fame unjustly. If the sex many times takes chosen its to the last sigh, affirms Irene, is for an accidental question: the reproductive agency of it can fall when it is pulled out quickly of inside of the female. After that it comes the extreme loss of hemolinfa (equivalent to our blood) and the death. The female of the aurantia Argiope also would be innocent, in accordance with researchers of the universities of Concord (Canada) and California (U.S.A.). It has suspicion of that the male if commits suicide during cópula, therefore is entalado in the female, thus forming a type of chastity belt and preventing that other galas intervene with its hatch. Its rivals do not save efforts to remove it, but they are rare the ones that get success.

Two Worlds II - Quick and Dirty Hands-On Impressions

*
Games: If you follow console games at all, it's pretty likely that you've heard of Two Worlds. Released in 2007 for PC/360, it was quickly greeted as a colossal failure and one of the poorest pieces of software to hit retail at that time. The reviews were absolutely scathing, and the title quickly became a running joke in the industry -- even a bit legendary, really.


Naturally, no one expected a sequel, however, a sequel there is. Even crazier, not only did the sequel actually get made, Two Worlds II is about fourteen bazillion times better than what they turned out the first time.

In fact, it's so much better it's not even comparable to the first game. Seriously, everything is massively, massively improved.

For realz, yo. And no, I'm not kidding.


So, here's the deal: SouthPeak sent along a copy of Two Worlds II on 360 and I've put about five or six hours into it so far. (By way of comparison, I put about fifteen minutes into the original before chucking it out the window.) I'm getting through it as fast as I can, but this is a big project. In the meantime, here's a quick and dirty breakdown for those who want to know:

*

> The simplest way to describe it is that it's a third-person open-world Western-style RPG. It's probably most analogous to Oblivion, although much more fast-paced, streamlined, and guided. To me, those are positive qualities that I appreciate. Does anybody really complain when a game includes a map marker indicating the location of your current goal? I know I don't.

You can also swim, but it's A LOT SLOWER.
> The world (the parts I've seen of it, anyway) seem to be pretty enormous. Thankfully, there are teleport pads sprinkled here and there to make quick-travel a viable option, but the square footage to be explored is quite impressive. After spending a couple hours in one area, I pulled the map back to see how big the total landmass was, and it was damned huge. I hadn’t even covered a majority of it.

> The main character can equip three completely different sets of equipment at the same time and cycle between them with a quick press of the D-pad. Whipping from robes and a mage staff to a bow and arrows to a broadsword and shield in the span of a second without stopping to go into an inventory screen is totally appreciated, and is a great way of keeping the real-time action moving.

There might be some good loot here...
> The crafting system reminds me a bit of a loot-whoring dungeon crawler crammed into a different kind of RPG world, but it totally works. Every piece of equipment dropped by enemies can either be used or broken down into component parts, so weaker dupes of stuff you already have can actually serve a purpose besides being sold for gold. Have four extra +1 swords? Break them all down into iron and steel, and use those materials to give another weapon a huge damage upgrade. It really gives a different spin to the item collection.

T3h z0mb13s!!!

> Apparently the magic system allows for a crazy variety of player-defined spells. I've seen a little bit of it so far, but I don't have enough of the components to actually see the full scope yet. At this point I can change the elements of my spells (ice/fire/water) and the nature of the spell (bolt/area blast) but not much else. Still, it's easy to see how flexible the system can be once I start collecting more goods.

*

That’s about it for now – I’m still really early in the game so I can't say much more than the quick observations above (estimated completion time without sidequests is around 20hrs, I’m told) but as someone who is a fan of this style of game, I definitely appreciate the tweaks and choices on display. It’s a little rough presentation-wise, but it’s all easily forgiven in light of the cool bits I’m seeing.

You can travel to that tower in the distance in real-time.
More impressions to come, but if you’re the kind of person who's interested in an open-world RPG but felt a little lost, bored, or overwhelmed with Oblivion, this one is definitely worth a look.

Lies of LIARS


How often do you lie?

  1. I can't live without lies.
  2. Sometimes I lie about stuff.
  3. I try to avoid lying to others.
It is very known that everybody lies, and there is absolutely no one who has never told a lie in his/her entire life. Seriously, a liar would definitely be caught if he/she said that he/she never lied before, well you are lying right now. The point is that lying is a bad habit whether it was a simple or major lie, it is a bad habit that people should try to avoid it. It's wrong to lie, but it's worse if you never ask for god's forgiveness! Because God will forgive anyone who seeks his forgiveness.  

If your answer was #3 then I'm glad that you are trying to avoid lying to others. If your answer was #2 then I hope you are lying for good reasons, but I wish you would try not to lie too much. But if it was #1 then you have to see this video:-



Mrs. Lauren was never honest with her family and her husband, she completely filled her life with lies, and look how did she end up now! She entered moment of truth show thinking that she could easily win 500,000 by answering the questions truthfully without telling any lie. In fact, it has become very difficult for her due to her daily habit of lying on every single thing. The moment she was supposed to be honest, is the moment that she herself could not differentiate between truth and lie.

To every person who depends on lying, don't lie on everything or else you'll lose everything. I hope you liked the post and thanks for reading.
