Sprained my ankle not too long ago while walking on 1st Feb 2015, less than 3 weeks before Chinese New Year. It’s been almost 5 months and I still have yet to regain full function on my ankles. =(
Anyway, I knew that the best shoes for squats and deadlifts were high cut Converse Chuck Taylors. They have flat soles that allow better feet grip and the high cut allows you to tie laces around to protect your ankles from over twisting.
We plan to start selling with 3 completed ice cream flavours in Little Penang at UPR on the last Sundays of every month. However, we are actually stuck. We aren’t really sure where to go to to get a bigger ice cream making machine in Malaysia.
I don’t think donating clothes count as anyone is capable of doing it without breaking a sweat. I am still looking forward to visiting animal shelters like SPCA Penang and see if there’s something that I can contribute my time to. Maybe help take photos of dogs/cats for adoption or bathing the animals. This was the only thing that we didn’t get to cross off our list. =(
I don’t care if you think I’m going to hell since I don’t believe it exists. I’m also not interested in gaining admission to your heaven.
I’m not afraid that you might be right and I might be wrong, so fear isn’t going to change my view.
I don’t care what “the bible says”. I have read it, studied it, enjoyed parts of it, but I don’t believe that it is anything but literature.
I will not accept rules or laws being imposed on me that are based in your personal religious beliefs. If you attempt to pass laws like that, I will fight you with all the strength I have.
I play fair. If you don’t play fair, then expect me to treat you as I am treated.
I don’t need to hear your version of the “good news” or any news. I’m an educated adult and I have spent much time researching religion and experimenting, and I ultimately decided it isn’t for me.
I have no problem with you practicing your religion. Why can’t you give me the same deference in living my life? My choices are not imposed on you in any way. I don’t expect to be imposed on by your choices either.
If you enter the public arena with an agenda, then expect those like me, who don’t share your agenda, to oppose you or at least ignore you.
We can work together on many things, like doing charity work for the poor, homeless, senior citizens, orphans, etc. Just leave your personal religious beliefs where they belong — in your personal life.
I will be polite when you attempt to impose your religion on me to a point. When you become invasive and annoying, I will push back. Let’s agree to disagree and keep our private lives separate. That will suit me fine and will lead to a peaceful community.

We can always go there next time.
Wen Huan Thanks for ALL the times when you picked me up for lunch with the guys. I really appreciate it. Really.
I’m at a point in my life where I’m searching and determining the things I want. For example, I like house music not techno, dogs not cats, Guinness not Carlsberg, and the list goes on.
Right now, I’m putting up the list of what I look for in a girl not for anyone but for myself. Yeah, it’s actually me getting to know me better. Self improvement kinda thing la.
Experience without education may not be enough. I never knew how different the male and female mind work until I read John Gray’s Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.
One fine example is the way guys react under stress. A guy usually withdraws himself and delve into the issue until a solution is found. If a solution is yet to be found, he will take ‘time outs’ and and go out with friends or watch the TV or play games, etc to take time to determine a solution. It allows him to distance himself from the problems to focus on something else. It allows him revisit the problem later with a fresh perspective.
A girl will find it hard to understand this as they were designed to talk about the issue during stress. There were times during my past relationships where I tried to retreat as she tried to get closer to me. As a result, it leads to conflicts.
There are other points as well, listed and explained nicely in John Gray’s book. Reading it was like viewing the same world in different perspectives. I like it when a girl understands me.
Honesty leads to trust. However, there are 2 types of honesty. One, reaction honesty, which is the approval seeking type and two, genuine honesty, where it is heartfelt and sincere. I like girls who are genuinely honest. I understand that sometimes it may be hard or she may be afraid to tell the truth because it may hurt or scare the person away.
more lies = more problems
Wouldn’t you rather be told the truth rather than be lied to? I would. I learned that in relationships, boundaries and rules will have to be set up from the start.
The saying below applies to honesty as well.
“Say what you do and do what you say”
Of course it applies to guys as well.
I like girls who are health conscious. I dare say health conscious girls are more attractive than those who aren’t. After all, a good physique is the FIRST thing that attracts a guy, even before getting to know a girl better. I’m attracted to women who exercise, eat right, sleeps well. I feel that being healthy makes a woman more energetic and confident. Resisting her may become an issue for me 😀
I like girls who carry themselves well. I believe this attribute usually comes with well read and educated women. I find the kind, caring type more attractive than the gossiping, nagging, insulting, teasing and alienating type. I find girls who are modest, reserved but fun more attractive than the type that always tries to be the life and soul of the party.
A Good Sense Of Dressing
I like girls who have a good sense of dressing. 3 reasons why.
Firstly, dressing well shows respect for others. I can imagine the frustration if I were to go for a date at a fine dining restaurant with a girl who looks like she’s just finished tuition class.
Second, dressing well promotes respect for herself.
Third, dressing well is part of being a woman. Just wearing whatever’s most comfortable isn’t really good enough to do well in the real world. For example, offices have dress codes. Clients have expectations. The kind where it requires the girl to put away the jeans and other college type of wears. And not knowing so will simply exhibit ‘immaturity’. If a woman dresses like a woman, she’d most likely be treated as a woman.
Full of Surprises
I like surprises too. A woman who surprises me just when I think I’m getting to know her is very exciting. I find mystery enticing and new at the same time. Keeping bits of information about herself can actually be beneficial. It’s like finding out that she can actually cook my favourite dish a month later or that she can play the piano well or she’s got talent in singing, etc.
Is A Dog Person
Simple. I’m a dog person. I hate cats. This is probably due to the cat infestation back when I was in Multimedia University. The part I hate about cats most is when they walk under the table and unknowingly curl their fur around your legs.
A Good Conversationalist
It’s like talking with each other, rather than at each other. I like a girl who speaks well and have constructive things to say. She doesn’t necessarily have to have something in common for me to take interest in her but if I try to talk to her and she just stands there, I’m going to move on. I like a girl that pays attention to things, who can make me want to listen more.
Be Willing To Participate
Whether it’s talking, eating, hiking, playing sports, games, dancing, swimming, hanging out with my buddies, it’s only polite to join in. If she just sits there and watch she might as well wear a flashy sign that says ‘I’m a boring person who does not like fun!’ Of course it does not mean she should join in drinking or gambling if she’s not into those things.
Makes Me Feel Confident In Her Presence
I like it when a girl makes me feel confident. I think this is something that is pretty unexplainable. I think it’s something that comes with her character. I think it comes with trust-worthyness, reliability, adventureousness and determination.
This list was actually written 8 months ago, specially dedicated to the next guy. Couldn’t seem to find the right time to share it. Anyways, here it is. The 20 things that will make it easier for you to understand her. It’s like a shortcut or cheat sheet.
Her favourite colour is green.
She likes shopping with her sisters in Prangin and Pacific Mega Mall cause she feels like it’s sale day each time she goes.
She LOVES horror movies even though she’s super scared after watching it. It’s a girl thing.
She enjoys attention from guys. Know that she will always be loyal and faithful to you no matter what. So, relax and learn to have fun watching her have fun.
She keeps in contact with her ex-s, especially No.3 and No.5. Know that she will always be loyal and faithful to you. So, relax.
There will be times when she will just feel like she’s the sexiest girl in town. She might say something self complimenting about her looks. Laugh at her and compliment her. She likes it. She was once the ‘presttiest supplier’ of her company.
When she learns something new like a dance move and shows it to you, laugh at her and compliment her. She likes it.
She likes the type of dog breed that looks like a polar bear. Second in line would be a pug. Her ultimate dream is to take her pet lion for a stroll in the park and scare the hell out of everyone.
If she sees Mark Cheng Hou Lam, she will hug him super tightly and never let him go. To her, he’s the hottest guy on earth.
She loves chocolate.
Because she’s the eldest in the family, she acts like a queen at home. But to you, she will be a machai.
She would love to own a Volkswagen one day.
She will wear your clothes often as it makes her feel close to you. Feels like you are around her when she smells your smell.
She has a better temper now. Even so, there will be times when she will utter words when she’s angry which she does not mean to say at all. Forgive her during those times. Continue to stay calm and relaxed.
She LOVES Haagen Dazs’s green tea ice cream.
She sings very, very well. So karaoke is a thing she enjoys a lot cause it makes her feel like a star.
She LOVES watching tv. She can sit down the whole day and do nothing but watch TV. It was her favourite since young.
One of her all time favourite R&B song is Mis-teeq’s – Scandalous.
She enjoys watching CSI : Las vegas a lot. I think she has a thing for Grissom. She also likes predicting the bad guy at the beginning of the show. Usually wrong la.
02.00 pm – We went to Rumah Charis old folk’s home in Relau.

Jacky Cheung – First Of May
Manbai – Kau Ilhamku
Ungu – Cinta Dalam Hati. (The Indonesian song that’s been played a lot by FlyFM)
As I do a lot of heavy sporting activities like gym, cycle, run, hike, play badminton, and jog, I will be needing a new pair of shoes. It can still wait as I can still run around in the shoes above. But if my eyes sport a super duper cool pair of sports shoes at a sale, I won’t hesitate nor think twice.
Update 3rd May :
The cup above is more than 3 years old. I like it, but it is small. I would like a Starbucks mug if possible. The one that they serve customers with.
(I wanted to ask whether if I could buy it, but nah…. I don’t think it’s for sale)
Update 3rd May :
I have been using this wallet since my buddies gave it to me on my 17th birthday. 8 years man. Pretty tahan lasak punya wallet. The next wallet for me will have to be thin. I saw a few potentials already but didn’t get any. Still waiting for a sale to appear.
