07.30 am – Woke up. Breakfasted.

08.30 am – Checked mails. Caught up with a lot of mails marked for reading.

10.30 am – Updated famouschris.

11.30 am – Lunch with Daryl n Gabe

at Kedai Kopi Top Taste.

Since young, I was trained to eat internal organs by my late grandfather. Every morning, when he goes for his Bah Kut Teh breakfast with his buddies, he’ll bring me along. And so being an ignorant 5 year old, I just ate whatever that was on the table.

Not until a few months ago when I had my blood work done, did I realize I have high cholesterol. I found out that internal organs are pretty high up in the list of high cholesterol food. Since then, I have been monitoring my intake closely.

01.30 pm – I have no talent in music at all. Zero.

However, if I were to choose a music instrument to master, it certainly will have to be the guitar. I have tried teaching myself but somehow, it just doesn’t seem to last. When I found out about John’s ambition to master the guitar as well, we came to a mutual conclusion to start guitar lessons NO MATTER WHAT by August 2008. (so as to prevent procrastination)

And so after lunch I went to enquire more about the guitar lessons in IJM’s Yamaha Music Academy. Thanks Ho Ann Lee, for spending the time explaining to me the details.

Basically, students pay RM80 monthly and RM50 for registration. Students will also have to buy their own song book for less than RM40. Lessons are for only half an hour per week. And they don’t teach strumming, ONLY plucking.

Hmm… Doesn’t sound too generous to me. Moved them down the ‘consideration list’.

02.00 pm – Collected my monthly salary.

02.30 pm – Updated famouschris.

06.00 pm – Ate something to tahan perut. Wanna keep the appetite for Kayu later.

08.00 pm – Kayu.

Looks delicious, tastes delicious.

09.00 pm – Reached Queensbay. Waited.

All 6 pairs of eyes were glued to the screen because of

this.

How cool. I would love to run along Gerrard and Torres if given the chance.

09.30 pm – Made of Honor.
