A great man…

Today, we, Xaverians from St. Xavier’s Institution Penang had received a terrible loss. Our Brother Director, Brother Karl Wolff also better known as Brother Charles Levin has to leave us for the Creator.


According to The Star newspaper, he passed away today, 14th October 2012, of sepsis at 4.14am. He was 85.

la salle

When I woke up this morning, as my morning Facebooking routine, I was pretty shocked I saw a few of my friends posting “RIP Brother Charles” and so. At first I thought it was just a joke or prank but after reading several posts, I began to doubt my doubt. I just couldn’t accept this shocking news!

Just a couple days ago, I still saw him, lingering around the school, with his usual stick, strolling along the corridor and now he’s gone? For me, I just can’t accept it! Although he never taught me in class, but from the first day I had ever step into this school, I knew this man is a great man! I have my utter respect towards him.



When I was Form 2, I went to his German lesson couple of times. As I was young and I didn’t have the passion to learn German language, he still taught us well, with passion and patience. I still can remember our class started at 7am and we will be leaving around 7.40am, through the Brother’s Quarter. Used to always greet in German every morning, “Guten Morgen, Bruder Charles”…



Having Brother Charles to leave us, is truly a great loss. In the year 2009, our last Brother principal, Brother Paul retired, a year later, great Brother Brendan passed away and now our last Brother Director had to leave us. Seriously, I really what will happen to St. Xavier’s Institution after this. No more figure to defend our school’s mission, vision, legacy and tradition.

We will always pray for you, as for the students and the children of St. Xavier, we will always hold our Lasallian principles. Rest in peace.

Auf wiedersehen….

Legoland Malaysia

It’s FINALLY OPEEEEEEEENN! Welcome to LEGOLAND Malaysia! The first LEGO themed park in ASIA! (Wooo~ So proud being a Malaysian)
Legoland Malaysia is located at Nusajaya, Johor. It’s just a few kilometer from Singapore, approx 10-15 minutes drive maybe? Anyway, for us, the Malaysian, it’s in Johor. If you don’t know where is Johor, Google Map your way out, man!
Well, for your information, Maybank is giving out tickets for LEGOLAND! Details here. I kinda stumble across this, so maybe I should just try it out? (Like duhhhh)
Question: “Why Maybank should give me tickets to Legoland?”
Easy! This is because I have travel so many places, and tried all kind of theme park already. For example,
Sunway Lagoon and Lost World of Tambun,
Genting Highland Theme Park
and even Bukit Merah Theme Park
Bukit Merah Theme Park
These parks are mostly Malaysian choice for water theme park and I love them! Thus, I would love to visit LEGOLAND because I heard the dry and water theme park are equally awesome? Seriously? Don’t tempt me lah!
They even have a rebuild of KL Tower and Petronas Twin Tower in Johor!
In Legos, of course. How surreal they can rebuild it and looks almost exactly the same!
As adventurous and aqua-seeker as I am, LEGOLAND Malaysia is a must for me to visit one day. Even me, a Penangite, from the north Malaysia can take the challenge of taking transportation as long as 10hrs to travel to Johor, just for LEGOLAND, well I can say that it will be a worthwhile trip! Just look at the amount of people, craviiiing for it!
Neither the less, for those who love theme park and water park, LEGOLAND Malaysia is a must to visit! Why?
1. It’s LEGO! Who doesn’t like LEGO?
2. It’s just in Johor. If you want to go to another LEGOLAND, it will be another 11000 kilometers away. Why not travel just 500 kilometers (from Penang) only?
3. The price is AFFORDABLE! Serious, not joking at all. It’s just RM140 for an adult price. Check it out here!
I would like to thank Maybank for giving us this opportunity for us (bloggers) to have a chance to win this amazing experience in this LEGOLAND Malaysia.
For more information about LEGOLAND, check out their Website and their Facebook Page!
LEGOLAND Malaysia! HERE I COME!….. but only after my STPM! *smile*

KIA Optima K5



It’s here, it’s FINALLY HERE! 2.0 litre Theta II MPI mill offering 165 PS at 6,200 rpm and 198 Nm at 4,600 rpm, with a six-speed automatic transmission in attendance. You can that this beauty owned Proton flat!


As a sedan lover, I would say…. DAMNN! Just look at the DESIGN, sleek, smooth and smooth and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. 3 colours to choose from; I love the Platinum Graphite, a very ambiance colour.





You can view some picture of the interior look beside this. From what I see, I love the bluetooth handle button. Such an ease for the driver. Furthermore, check out the seat! Looks comfy for me.





Check out the exterior nearer. YOU really should see the fine design of the car. I would say I love the streamline of the car and the front light. They give me a feeling that it’s ready to rock the road! Too awesome for a car, right?





Well, from the price RM143,888, you get an 8-way electronically-controlled seat with an integrated memory seat function, which retains settings for two drivers based on their seating position. In terms of safety, the car comes equipped with six airbags (dual front, front side and full length-curtain) and an electronic stability programme incorporating ABS, EBD, TCS, brake assist and hill-start assist control.


I mean, for such a performable car with HPD (high performance dampers) as part of its suspension setup, it’s really a joy to us as drivers to drive!

Final word from me, for those who doesn’t own a car or planning to buy one,

Steve Jobs (1955-2011)


It’s so sad that one of the world greatest inventor had just passed away; Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple. 2 years ago when Michael Jackson passed away, it was sad but now, it’s even worst because he’s the reason now we have all our iPod, iPad and iMac.

I kinda found out a video of him giving a speech which I think is really inspiring for me.

I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That’s it. No big deal. Just three stories.

The first story is about connecting the dots.
I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out?
It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife. Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: “We have an unexpected baby boy; do you want him?” They said: “Of course.” My biological mother later found out that my mother had never graduated from college and that my father had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented a few months later when my parents promised that I would someday go to college.

And 17 years later I did go to college. But I naively chose a college that was almost as expensive as Stanford, and all of my working-class parents’ savings were being spent on my college tuition. After six months, I couldn’t see the value in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out. And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The minute I dropped out I could stop taking the required classes that didn’t interest me, and begin dropping in on the ones that looked interesting.

It wasn’t all romantic. I didn’t have a dorm room, so I slept on the floor in friends’ rooms, I returned coke bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be priceless later on. Let me give you one example:

Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best calligraphy instruction in the country. Throughout the campus every poster, every label on every drawer, was beautifully hand calligraphed. Because I had dropped out and didn’t have to take the normal classes, I decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do this. I learned about serif and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can’t capture, and I found it fascinating.

None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life. But ten years later, when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just copied the Mac, it’s likely that no personal computer would have them. If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards ten years later.

Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

My second story is about love and loss.

I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life. Woz and I started Apple in my parents garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4000 employees. We had just released our finest creation — the Macintosh — a year earlier, and I had just turned 30. And then I got fired. How can you get fired from a company you started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me, and for the first year or so things went well. But then our visions of the future began to diverge and eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our Board of Directors sided with him. So at 30 I was out. And very publicly out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating.

I really didn’t know what to do for a few months. I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down – that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure, and I even thought about running away from the valley. But something slowly began to dawn on me — I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over.

I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.

During the next five years, I started a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife. Pixar went on to create the worlds first computer animated feature film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful animation studio in the world. In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought NeXT, I returned to Apple, and the technology we developed at NeXT is at the heart of Apple’s current renaissance. And Laurene and I have a wonderful family together.

I’m pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn’t been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.

My third story is about death.

When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning, and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn’t even know what a pancreas was. The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor’s code for prepare to die. It means to try to tell your kids everything you thought you’d have the next 10 years to tell them in just a few months. It means to make sure everything is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes.

I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy, where they stuck an endoscope down my throat, through my stomach and into my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a few cells from the tumor. I was sedated, but my wife, who was there, told me that when they viewed the cells under a microscope the doctors started crying because it turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had the surgery and I’m fine now.

This was the closest I’ve been to facing death, and I hope it’s the closest I get for a few more decades. Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept:

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late 1960′s, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and polaroid cameras. It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.

Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.” It was their farewell message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.

Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

Thank you all very much.

The past has passed, therefore I’m guessing we should just look at our future right now. Let us remember him, who changed our life, in our hearts.

Rest In Peace..

The X-Factor USA Ep 2

It’s Miami and Dallas, peeps! Beaches meet Cowboys, bikinis meet cowboy hats, and Simon meets weirdos? Seriously, weirdos. We have Justin Bieber went-even-wrong since Bieber is a wrong thing since the beginning.

We have diva/bitch


And even ‘Presley’

nick voss

This is so frustration because Episode 1 was amazingly awesome and then, this? For godness sake, this is not the worst yet, I mean, this is my personal opinion. There’s this rock and roll guy, Dexter Haygood.

dexter haygood

Watch this first.

First, he almost got cut off but Simon ‘saved’ him and gave him a second chance, I would say usually, USUALLY second chance means mind blowing performances but instead I feel like it’s just SLIGHTLY better, I mean 1% better only? He got thru the audition. For me, I don’t feel like he’s good enough for this competition but America rejects my opinion.

This is a poll made in and it says:

Did the Judges Make the Right Call on Xander Alexander?

Yes 80.18%

No 19.82%


Well, all judges passed him, so I rest my case. Let me just enlighten you all with the top audition of the night. Cailin Koch, 21.


Beautiful right? Oh by the way, she’s a rugby coach. Anyway, total voice control and her style is seriously unique. Watch this!

Last by not least, I would say the best audition of the night goes to…. *drum-rolls*



She sang ‘Listen’ by Beyonce. Yup, tough song but let me tell you this, she freaking nailed it! Yes, as powerful as Beyonce! Trust me, this is the only video you would not want to miss it.

Sometimes I really wish that I have their talent.. *envy* but anyway summary for Episode 2 was talent’s not overwhelming, lots of retards and looking forward for Episode 3 next Friday! (Only for me who watch X Factor thru Malaysia’s 8TV)

The X-Factor USA Ep 1

I been waiting and waiting for Simon Cowell to be back on reality television show and finally, he’s BACK!


Well, I do not have Astro or whatever other channel, Imma sticking with my 8TV. Their channel might be late a couple days late than US time but I’m good with it, as long it’s air in Malaysia.

There’s a few talent I would say it’s good such as this 12 years old, Rachel Crow


Not bad I would say, for a twelve years old young lady.

There’s a lot of wonderful talent but I’m promoting the excellent ones only; such as Stacey Francis, a 42 years old mom of two.


Her voice is just…. beautiful. Seriously, watch this.

I seriously don’t know what’s wrong with her ex-‘husband’. Seriously, for a person to suppress this wonderful woman is just a jerk. Whoever you are, curse you.

Well, next we have this guy, Chris Rene, 28.


He sang his audition with his own original song, Young Homie. I mean, for a big show like this he uses his own song. It’s kinda bold but you will believe each words he sang. Try listening.

For a person who just got off from rehab, I’m freaking sure it must be hard for him to scrap of his addiction but I guess, this might be his chance.

Well, such wonderful an opening for the brand new reality show, I would say (for now), this show is 100% better than this year’s American Idol. For everyone (Malaysian), who doesn’t have Astro, like me, The X-Factor is on 8TV; every Friday and Saturday, starting 10pm and 10.30pm.

I am so hype for this show!! *smile smile*
