29 February.....leap year


2008 is a leap year, which means that it has 366 days instead of the usual 365 days that an ordinary year has. An extra day is added in a leap year—February 29—which is called an intercalary day or a leap day.

How leap year came into picture ??? A quick search on the net reveals this :-

Leap years are added to the calendar to keep it working properly. The 365 days of the annual calendar are meant to match up with the solar year. A solar year is the time it takes the Earth to complete its orbit around the Sun—about one year. But the actual time it takes for the Earth to travel around the Sun is in fact a little longer than that—about 365¼ days (365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds, to be precise). So the calendar and the solar year don't completely match—the calendar year is a touch shorter than the solar year.

It may not seem like much of a difference, but after a few years those extra quarter days in the solar year begin to add up. After four years, for example, the four extra quarter days would make the calendar fall behind the solar year by about a day. Over the course of a century, the difference between the solar year and the calendar year would become 25 days! Instead of summer beginning in June, for example, it wouldn't start until nearly a month later, in July. As every kid looking forward to summer vacation knows—calendar or no calendar—that's way too late! So every four years a leap day is added to the calendar to allow it to catch up to the solar year.

Sometimes we really envy those born on this day !! They only get to celebrate their birthday every 4 years !!!!! So how lucky you are when you are 80years old ... and can proudly says that you are only 20 !!!!! Only set back is that no one would celebrate with you for the next 3 years....as on the 28th February its not your birthday yet...and on 1st of March..your birthday has already passed !!!

And they even has a special page dedicated to leap years !!!


On the not so positive side, the 29th day of every month would be mark a black day in my life history. Its been 2 month since that unfaithful day.... my heart is still hurt and the wound has not healed ... only deepens ...

Old Priest Joke !!!

Received this in my post today..so just thought of sharing it with you guys !!! Enjoy.......


The old priest lay dying in the hospital.

For years He had faithfully served the people of the nation's capital. He motioned for his nurse to come near.

"Yes, Father?" said the nurse.

"I would really like to see Khairy and Samy Velu before I die", whispered the priest.

"I'll see what I can do, Father" replied the nurse.

The nurse sent the request to them and waited for a response. Soon the word arrived. Khairy and Samy would be delighted to visit the priest.

As they went to the hospital, Khairy commented to Samy "I don't know why the old priest wants to see us, but it will certainly help our images."

Samy couldn't help but agree.

When they arrived at the priest's room, the priest took Samy's hand in his right hand and Khairy's hand in his left. There was silence and a look of serenity on the old priest's face.

Finally Samy spoke. "Father, of all the people you could have chosen, why did you choose us to be with you as you near the end?"

The old priest slowly replied "I have always tried to pattern my life after our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."

The old priest continued..."He died between two lying thieves. I would like to do the same."

My dream come true

I've finally got a place of my own. Just signed my bank loan documents today and hopefully by this year end ,I can move in to my own place !!! The only drawback is that my monthly commitment would be heavier,....... much heavier and literally I've got to work hard for to pay off my loan..meaning I've got to cut down on my expenses, happy hour etc.

This particular property is the last low-density condominium you can find anywhere else in Setapak ,with one block comprising 82 units and 16 townhouse only ,situated at the highest point of Wangsa Maju Section 10 hill .




The fengshui master giving his nod of approval for my home sweet home.



Unobstructed view from my balcony, overlooking Ampang .


'The longer you stay, the better your luck would be' thats what the master commented !

Pool area...hopefully some hot babes would move in here !!


Even comes with a rooftop garden with spectacular views .

Unobstructed view of KLCC and City center from the rooftop garden, my favourite !!



The setback....it doesnt comes free !! Have to service my loan from now !!!!

Lydia Sum ( 1945 - 2008 )


Lydia Shum Din-Ha, known as Fei-fei, or Fatty, and one of Hong Kong's most popular comedian actresses, died of liver tumor and other complications on Tuesday morning in a hospital in Hong Kong. She was 60 years old. With her signature smile, dark-rimmed glasses and comic hairstyle, Shum established herself as a comic and dramatic actress. Her successful career spanning almost half a century also included the role as a TV hostess.

Lydia Shum , Born in Shanghai in 1947, Sum made her movie debut at age 13 and acted in more than 100 movies in Hong Kong and hosted more than 5,000 episodes of variety shows. As Hong Kong leader Donald Tsang commented "Hong Kong grew up with her laughter. She brought us a lot of joy,''.

Recalling my younger days as a child I also grew up with Fei-Cher on TVB's Enjoy Yourself Tonight, that was the days where VCR tapes were the in thing. Indeed she has brought me many laughters, if my memory permits me...there was one episode on EYT, where despite her size..she stand on some egg and miracously it never break....and as a child then....i tried it at home too..and guess what ??? The eggs broke !!!!

May her soul rest in peace.
