Regine & Me

Just bumped into my friend Regine Tai today. My, my I've gotta admit that fame has definitely put a rosy glow to her face. Anyway, I'm very very happy for her. Her album is definitely doing well and she is getting femes and femes as Malaysian Bloggers put it.

Good Job Regine !!!

As I always say, please do support our local singers. They are just as good, if not better than what Taiwan, Hong Kong and for that matter China can produce.

Malaysia Boleh !!!

My Obsession With Jewel In The Palace

Hi World,

I am back again after a very long hiatus. No real reason other than the fact that I have found my soul mate. Here's to you soul mate if you're reading this. Anyway, back to the issue at hand. My JEWEL IN THE PALACE vcds have been rendered unwatchable. Arrrrgggghhhh! Here was I wanting to watch it for the 7th time and it failed on me.

Why do I like Jewel In The Palace (Da Chang Jing)? I'll tell you why. It'll stand up to numbers of rewatches just for the myriad of details to be seen in the movie. You can actually appreciate how much heart has been put into this series.

I am not about to rave about the actors and actresses. They did their job ok but it was nothing great but the script and the story was superb and riveting. From the details put into the preparation of the food to the prescriptions by the healers and of course not to mention a beautiful glimpse of old Korea.

Of course I still can't decide whether the movie was done in conjunction with the Korean Tourism Ministry because it's like almost EVERYONE (including moi) wants to go to Korea to have a look. Well kudos to Korea.

Anyway, did I mention that I've found my soulmate? She is definitely capable of pulling my thoughts away from Da Chang Jing hehe :-)

Desperate Thoughts of Suicide - 3 Times in My Life

Just reading up Jill's Blog @ about somebody who drank a cup ultra concentrated Clorox because he was rejected by a girl. Really churned up memories of the 3 Times in My life that I felt like suicide.

1st Time - I was National President of a multi-varsity society when it was still undergoing a transition and realignment. We had inter-varsity cat fights and turf battles for the sake of thriving and survival. I was caught in the middle trying to balance it all. The thought of attending the Mid-National Convention really gave me the jitters and the shivers. Felt like throwing myself off University Heights.

2nd Time - Failure to Graduate within 4 years - Yeah, it took me 5 years to grad - I was in short a lazy bum who didn't work hard enough to pass all his papers - I tell you nobody can punish you like the way you can punish yourself. I really felt like throwing myself off Penang Bridge. Ohh, the shame !!! Couple with the fact that I was already confirmed with a job 6 months before. What will my ultra strict mother say? Will I lose my job over it?

3rd Time - I had been cocky and full of myself. I gave up a RM 5000 job in the year 2001 to fulfill my ambitions to be a trainer. I joined up with somebody whom I thought could make me one. Turned out to be the 'GREATEST Learning Experience In My Life'. I was with the guy, CKC, for 1 year and 3 months. I didn't get a single paycheck from him. I invested or threw away nearly RM 100,000 in that period. My SATRIA 1.6 turned into a TOYOTA Corolla 1981 and I lost my girlfriend in the process. That was not all, I lost my self-confidence, my self-esteem, my friends and the respect of my entire family. I was reduced to practically begging for money from whomever who could give it. I felt like hanging myself.

Why am I still here? Basically, it's love of family and a sense of duty. I feel like an investment sometimes. They have invested more than half their lives in me. Money, time, love, heartaches. Here I was contemplating the 10 ways to die handsomely :-( I cannot give in to the weakness of SUICIDE - sure it takes courage to throw yourself off the edge, but it takes more to soldier on despite everything. That's why Hell is the only place for Catholics who hang themselves. And the weight of Karma hanging on your neck for the Buddhists. We've been given the special privilege of life and yet we throw it away? Hey, I still had at least 3 friends who believed in me - Bunnywunny, LSG & WL. And Bunnywunny is my bestest friend. Bun Bun, if you're reading this, Kudos to you ok.

ORGASM Switches off Part of A Woman's Brain

Far be it from me to Tabloidize something Tabloidable but this article that I received on my email just today really has a place in my ... (I'm in danger of changing Minishorts rating of my blog from U to 18SX - but still no swear words haha)

Orgasm Switches Off Part of a Woman's Brain

If you're a Seinfeld fan, you'll probably remember The Abstinence episode where George stops having sex and gets smarter, while Elaine abstains and becomes dumber.

Although you can't put much scientific reliance on a Seinfeld episode, researchers at the University of Groningen have discovered that sex does affect the female brain.

Unlike Elaine, who lost brainpower when she stopped having sex, the team found that several areas of a woman's brain turn off during orgasm.

For the study, the researchers gathered 13 healthy women and asked them to lie with their heads in a PET scanner while they were being sexually stimulated.

The PET scan revealed that as the women were turned on, activity increased in the somatosensory cortex, the part of the brain that controls senses. However, activity dramatically dropped in the amygdala and hippocampus, the areas associated with alertness and anxiety.

The researchers believe the drop in activity in certain areas of the brain has an evolutionary function--everyone knows that women can't have sex if they're anxious--so as a woman becomes aroused, this part of the brain becomes inactive, letting the instinct to reproduce (senses) take over.

A similar study has already been performed on men, however, their brains had far less deactivation.

Next up, the team hope to look at what happens to the brain immediately following an orgasm.

The research was reported in Copenhagen, Denmark at the annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology.

Guys, how many times have you felt that you have given your all to satisfy the one you love and yet you don't get much of a response ? Or you feel that she's faking it - yeah we guys can sometimes tell the difference - and there's not much you can do about it ?

She's well lubricated but she just can't come ? I think it's probably due to some oher stuff - mostly concerns about life and the universe in General (like, uh I hope my boyfriend doesn't find out about this - Damn I forgot to finish my daily report - hmm can I close that mega deal I've been working on - God, I think I forgot to lock the door to the room - oops have I taken the PILL yet - I think I'm late) that just can't seem to get her up.

Well, after reading this article, things seem to fall into place - Ooooh I've had a Eureka moment. I now know why no amount of visualing Einstein's E=MC squared or Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle or fergodsakes Thermodynamic Principles is going to prolong (by much) my ejaculation time - if it's gotta come, it's gotta come - sheesh - there goes the macho I can go at it for half the night fantasy :-(

Seriously, this changes the way I view ORGASMs both male and female.

Guys, we gotta learn to distract the Girls from those intellectual ruminations during the act or can we do that by humping those thoughts out of them?

Girls, what do you think we Guys can do to give you a better ..... time ?
