Warren Buffet's Advice for 2009

This is actually I copy from my email sended by my boz.. Thanx Ms. Sheila..I appreciate it and hope that can be guide all of us to wade this year due to economy crisis.

the artical are:

We begin this New Year with dampened enthusiasm and dented optimism. Our happiness is diluted and our peace is threatened by the financial illness that has infected our families, organizations and nations. Everyone is desperate to find a remedy that will cure their financial illness and help them recover their financial health. They expect the financial experts to provide them with remedies, forgetting the fact that it is these experts who created this financial mess.

Every new year, I adopt a couple of old maxims as my beacons to guide my future. This self-prescribed therapy has ensured that with each passing year, I grow wiser and not older. This year, I invite you to tap into the financial wisdom of our elders along with me, and become financially wiser.

* Hard work: All hard work bring a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.

* Laziness: A sleeping lobster is carried away by the water current.

* Earnings: Never depend on a single source of income. [At least make your Investments get you second earning]

* Spending: If you buy things you don't need, you'll soon sell things you need.

* Savings: Don't save what is left after spending; spend what is left after saving.

* Borrowings: The borrower becomes the lender's slave.

* Accounting: It's no use carrying an umbrella, if your shoes are leaking.

* Auditing: Beware of little expenses; A small leak can sink a large ship.

* Risk-taking: Never test the depth of the river with both feet. [Have an alternate plan ready]

* Investment: Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

I'm certain that those who have already been practicing these principles remain financially healthy. I'm equally confident that those who resolve to start practicing these principles will quickly regain their financial health.

Let us become wiser and lead a happy, healthy, prosperous and peaceful life.

For The Salary...

Before you scroll down to read this I would like to inform you this is funny joke that I just received via email from my friend. You must are open minded and have sense of humor to read this ...

The Day the Penis asked for a Raise
I, the Penis, hereby request a raise in salary for the following reasons:
I do physical labor.
I work at great depths..
I plunge headfirst into everything I do.
I do not get weekends or public holidays off.
I work in a damp environment.
I work in a dark workplace that has poor ventilation.
I work in high temperatures.
My work exposes me to contagious diseases.
Sincerely,P. Niss
The Response
Dear Penis:
After assessing your request, and considering the arguments you have raised, the administration rejects your request for the following reasons:
You do not work 8 hours straight.
You fall asleep after brief work periods.
You do not always follow the orders of the management team.
You do not stay in your designated area and are often seen visiting other locations.
You do not take initiative - you need to be pressured and stimulated in order to start working.
You leave the workplace rather messy at the end of your shift.
You don't always observe necessary safety regulations, such as wearing the Correct protective clothing.
You will retire well before you should.
You are unable to work double shifts.
You sometimes leave your designated work area before you have completed the assigned task..
And if that were not all, you have been seen constantly entering and exiting the workplace carrying two suspicious-looking bags.
V. Gina

Life is like gambling

This is such a beautiful advice from my friend JoJo Ng.. I like it, Jo!

Its like playing poker.

You win, you win. You loose, you loose.

Unless if your are like in the movies, and playing with all the tricks (That is call cheating)

How many of us knows how to gamble with life? If you are handsome, you are poor. If you are handsome and rich, you will die early. If you are handsome, rich, and live long, then you will surely loose some part of important elements in life. (Perhaps, happiness or love, etc . . .)

If the poker card comes to you, then its yours, if it doesn’t, then its not. If you make the wrong move, then there will be no turning back, no U-Turn. No one will always win, no one will always loose. One shall declare the winner, the other the looser, but this doesn’t mean that it will be forever.

The gambler takes the risks, the gambler takes the challenges. If you wanna fool with the game, you have got to face the consequences. May it be good or bad.

But sometimes, there are gamblers who stop taking chances. This my friend, takes lots of courage as well. It is not an easy move to back out while your on the poker table. One might look at you as a coward, the other might look at you as a looser. Well, I look at this person as a winner. It takes a brave heart, and a smart brain to tell himself that enough is enough. Move forward and never look back. The decision had been made. The decision, is not only for the sake of himself, but for the sake of his team, his associates, his fans, and for the future.

If you are to gamble with your life, don’t let the joker fool you. Don’t let the Kings, and Queens, Spades and Hearts to eat your precious life away. There will always be en entrance and an exit. Step in , and step out, while you still can, MY FRIEND.

p/s: Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated…


To someone not a part of the punk, emo, goth type subcultures, the three may seem very similar, especially when it comes to emo and goth.

Nothing could be more laughable to people who subscribe to these lifestyles, however. If you want to understand emo and goth, you need to understand their roots.

Both emo and goth stem from the punk culture, and they both retain those roots, although emo has stuck closer to its punk origins than has goth. All three of these lifestyles stem from music.

Music is highly important to the human race – it acts as an outlet, and it moves us emotionally. Punk music has had a sort of underground popularity for decades now, and it has spawned other, similar styles

Fashion is as much an art form as music, so it stands to follow that each separate branch of this tree would have its own distinct style. Of course, you can’t stereotype and say that every person within a fashion mode wears the exact same clothes. It’s no more true to say that every goth wears all black than it is to say that every preppy wears pink polo shirts.

Emo, goth and punk have signature styles, and the differences are obvious if you look closely. Goths do tend to wear a lot of black, but they also experiment sometimes with other dark colors. Black pants, skirts, corsets, interesting tights, etc. are all typically associated with goth.

T-shirts of bands popular among goths also abound, as does black eye make-up lipstick, nail polish, and heavy footwear (combat boots!). The easiest way to differentiate between emo and goth is accessorizing. Goths tend to wear heavy Victorian and other historically-inspired jewelry and accessories.

Emo fashion doesn’t stay away from black, but it’s not nearly as common to see black clothes as it is in the goth world. It is typical for hair, but not clothes.

Clothes can sometimes be thought of as a more modern cross between grunge and goth. Hoodies, scarves, and tight jeans are very typical.

Once you understand the basics of what differentiates emo, goth and punk, you won’t mistake one for the other. Each group has its own aesthetic that makes it unique.

Gothic as Subculture

Gothic, like the Glam and Punk scenes it sprang from, is highly rooted in style. Music and fashion take precedence over other forms of expression, in fact, the newsgroup alt.gothic lists resources on bands, clubs, and dying hair, but no resources on any particular doctrine or philosophy of the goth scene. Similarly, Nick Mercer's Hex Files: The Goth Bible only lists information relevant to the consumer: CDs, boutiques, magazines, etc.

The emphasis on style, tendencies towards individualism of the subculture¹s members, and general lack of definition, therefore, make Goth difficult to place within a socioeconomic context. Goths come from all economic classes and the culture which a Goth has grown up in does not seem to be important.

The only way to place Gothic in a previously-studied context is to relate the defined elements of the subculture to the subcultures it rose from. Punk and Glam, having had more media exposure and widespread recognition, are easier to contextualize, and perhaps Goth can be defined in a limited fashion regarding its relationships with its parent subcultures

Glam, which itself is a synthesis of the Underground and the skinhead subcultures (Hebdige, 60) is a consumerist movement based mostly on self-presentation and representation. This aesthetic and the propensity of goths to play with conventional ideas of gender are highly visible in the Gothic scene. In fact, David Bowie, one of the main figures of the Glam scene, is also quite revered in the Gothic scene, reinforced by his friendship with perennial Goth favorite Bauhaus and his appearance in a popular movie in the Gothic subculture, The Hunger

Punk rock is also an enormous influence on the Gothic scene. One of the bands seen as the cornerstone of Gothic, Siouxie and the Banshees, started out as punk groupies (Hebdige, 110) and gradually created their own dark aesthetic, taking the black clothing and bondage gear of the Punk scene to the extreme and taking song inspiration from the macabre and horrific.

Goth also has similarities to New Wave (also known as "art school punk", which is itself a descendant of Glam and Punk. In fact, Goth can be seen as sort of the dark inverse of New Wave, relying on the same theatrical spectacle and artistic strategies and having similar musical structures, but relying more on a celebration of death and sadness than on absurdity and politicism.

here is a subcurrent of individualism and self-alientation that sets Gothic apart from these other subcultures, beyond the stylistic approaches. Although Goths will gather at clubs to dance and socialize, they tend to set strong boundaries and mostly do not dance with one another as other clubgoers might; they dance alone ("Spacial").

This individualistic nature is indicative of a personal sense of alienation. Alienated youth have, according to Keniston,a fragmentation of identity in which "[t]he core of their ideology is negative, a repudiation of the central values of their culture, with few clear positive values or goals." (184-185) This may be a reaction to the plethora of choices youth, especially those more intelligent than average, are expected to make, causing them to refuse all and adopt a nihilistic attitude (86-87).

Another theme of youth alienation is a strong love of fantasy and an idealization of the past (189). This is reflected in the Gothic subculture's love of Victorian and medieval/fantasy-inspired art and clothing, and in the admiration of fantasy films such as The Dark Crystal, Legend, and Labyrinth, (which co-stars David Bowie).

Women are surprisingly much more represented in Gothic than in other subcultures. They are neither absent nor invisible, as hypothesized in the studies of McRobbe and Garber (112), but occupy an equal position to their male counterparts. This may be because Gothic is seen as a traditionally feminized identity (As Hannaham puts it, "Heavy metal was aggressive, sexist and therefore 'masculine,' while Goth had a softer, more accepting, 'feminine' cast."(114)). There is more of an emphasis on reflection and intellectualism than on action, and the participants in the Gothic subculture tend to have a strong artistic bent

The primary reason for the strong female presence in Gothic, however, seems to be that traditional gender roles are not as important in Gothic society. In other subcultures where gender roles are subverted, females do indeed become more visible, as in the Hippie and Glam movements

A crucial part of representing oneself in the Gothic subculture involves questioning the adherence of others to the Goth scene. This is strange in a subculture with such a loosely defined ideology, but certainly has parallels in other youth movements. For example, rappers will strengthen their own self-image by denigrating other rappers, as in the case of the arbitrary east coast/west coast distinctions and the arbitrary rivalries they have spawned

The practice of ridiculing fellow Goths is highly visible on the internet. Sites such as "Cheeziest Goth Site of the Week" , "Goth Goose of the Week" and "Reality Check" are databases of websites which are too pretentious, too poorly designed, or not Goth enough by the standards of the reviewers.

Furthermore, Goths tend to look unfavorably upon those just joining the Gothic scene. Alicia Porter states that "First and second generation Goths look suspiciously upon the new generation, doubting their authenticity and disliking the exposure they give to a subculture which would prefer to remain underground." ("Gothic Subculture") The urge to remain out of the public eye is certainly understandable, as the media tends to portray Goths in an unfavorable ("Gothic Subculture") and frequently inaccurate ("Gothic Subculture") light

However, though there are Goths who take themselves very seriously, there are also those who represent themselves by downplaying their "gothicness" and by making light of their involvement in the subculture. The "Insta-Goth Kit" is a satirical look at the popular icons of the Gothic lifestyle - music, fashion, literature, etc. It is a response to those who those who join the subculture abruptly and without learning more about it ("Bored with your current look? So am I! Shed off those blah blue jeans, purchase an Insta Goth Kit, and enter the mysterious world of Goth easily and Cost Effectively!") It also addresses stereotypes of Gothic attitude in non-Gothic culture ("Remember, all true artists and poets were greatly misunderstood, much like the gothy people are. That is why we are outcasts! Because *hand to forehead* we are all so misunderstood!")

Although the Gothic is a difficult subculture to define, a sharper picture of it emerges through its relationships to Punk and Glam, through the psychological studies of alienated youth, and through the act of self-representation, especially on the internet. It is not simply a culture of "darkness", it has roots in an opposition to modern society and a celebration of gender exploration, a morbid aesthetic, and a dichotomy of representation by degrading self and others

Tauruz Outlook for 2009

Year 2009 Career
You will discover new ways to regenerate your finances this year, as you let go of blocks and fears that are holding you back. Rethink your belief that you have to work hard for money; as you evolve spiritually, you will find that this thinking no longer serves you. As you step into your creative flow, work and finances become much easier for you. You realize that you're able to manifest a dependable income when you just allow your talents to flow. As you learn to do what excites you, your enthusiasm will overflow and new opportunities will come your way. Trust that your ideas will tap into profitable avenues. When you stop placing restrictions on yourself, you will be able to move ahead and gain amazing benefits.

You enjoy giving outwardly and being in the public eye, and your life-long pursuit of developing your creative talents now has a new venue for manifestation. As you embrace your power, opportunities open up for public speaking, writing, performing and sharing visionary ideas with others. Through your work, you will most likely be helping people to achieve their own creative connection and a higher purpose in life. Your integrity and energy is shifting, and others are inspired by your wholeness and beauty.

The fruits of your work relationships will increase by leaps and bounds this year. Any endeavors you undertake will be very profitable, expansive and satisfying. As you open up to the creative avenues before you, you will earn bountifully, so surrender to the blissful adventure of walking down a satisfying career path!

Year 2009 Romantic
Success in your work life spills over to your romantic life. You are newly inspired as positive friendships develop and your loved ones express how feel about you. Their encouragement helps you feel more comfortable about expressing yourself romantically. Spontaneity can be challenging for you in romantic love, but your gifts are many and it's important for you to appreciate and love yourself so that it rubs off others and attracts the right person.

In recent years, you've been hesitant to trust your instincts when it comes to love, but that mindset doesn't serve you anymore. As you start surrendering to the notion of a one-on-one relationship, the right person will walk into your life. As you let the doors open on your romantic life, your home environment will become sunny and stable, and you'll find your personal relationships improving. By the end of the year, your romantic life will have taken on a whole new dimension. You will be singing with joy as you experience intense intimacy with your partner, leaving you content on an emotional level deeper than you've ever felt before.

Much of the transformation happening to you romantically this year is about discovering how to be comfortable in larger fields of social existence and belief systems. As you expand your personal beliefs, you are also learning to trust others and connect more with the creative energy blossoming between you and everyone you meet -- especially your lover

Hallowen's Nite in November '08

This early November I went to Penang Island and it look quite nice there, I spent for 3D2N there and I had a wonderful vacation on there. People like me not coming down here just for seeing or looking for food, took picture( of coz laa..hahah) or shopping like ordinary tourist but MOSTLY looking for the night life here(Penang).

Thanks God, that 1st nite there is Hallowen Nite. So, of coz Im looking for the nite entertaiment, rite? Hahahah...But I have no picture for this..so sayang oh...Luckily me & my frens staying near the most top pub & bar there (Continental Hotel).I couldnt believe my eyes when I went down to that area (just crossing the road) that nite, it was HEAVING! Thousands of people..... all dressed in an array of costumes, make up and looking out of this world (excuse the pun). Ah it was Just So Outrageous! It was brilliant to see so many people dressed up, made me so proud to be part of this..... seriously, it was great! You really should have been there! Loved being in the midst of it all ! For those people who got dressed up : WELL DONE YOU !!!There were Ghost Busters, Police uniforms, accident victims, even Betty and Thelma (from the Flintstones) and those two gals looked absolutely adorable. Then there were draculas wondering around,witches, warlocks, frankensteins, anime characters in leather, 'school kids", ghosts, cowboys, prisoners, a great looking cleopatra, can can girls, 80s vintage dressers, clowns, mime artists, and the list goes on .... yes, I was impressed... saw so many fab outfits and make up too.

We went to R&B! Wow!!! Wow!! all the hip people were flocked at those two places. DJs and Bands group were rocking the house! the band was great! Brilliant! Even I had a bit disappointed to go this pub (coz I more prefere to crowded & more happening place like 1st pub we go) but I had enjoyed and hanging there till the police make sport check (dun care laa they didn't kacau me mah). ;ll-))What a great night , Hallloween was such tremendous fun! Danced all night and party all night tilll late! Hope my next destination (Manila) more Happening and Glam. hahaha..
