Lesson 1:
A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor.

Before she! says a word, Bob says, "I'll give you $800 to drop that towel, "

After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves.
The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, "Who was that?"

"It was Bob the next door neighbor," she replies.

"Great," the husband says, "did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?"

Moral of the story:
If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.

Lesson 2:
A priest offered a Nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.

The nun said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?" The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again.

The nun once again said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?"

The priest apologized "Sorry sister but the flesh is weak."

Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way.

On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129

It said, "Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory."

Moral of the story:
If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.

Puff! She's gone.

"Me next! Me next!" says the sales rep. "I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life."

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing?"

The eagle answered: " Sure , why not."

So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested.

All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

Lesson 5
A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but I haven't got the energy."

"Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients." !

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree.

He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the! tree.

Moral of the story:
Bull Shit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

Lesson 6
A little bird was flying south for the Winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.

As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.

A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Morals of the story:
(1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.
(2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
(3) And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth shut!

STROKE: Remember The 1st Three Letters.. S.T.R.

New Sign of a Stroke...... ...Stick out Your Tongue.

I have received e-mail about stroke identification, which is so important to everybody. Seriously.. Please read:


During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food - while she appeared a bit shaken up, Imelda (name changed) went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Imelda's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00pm , Ingrid passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Imelda would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this...

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.


Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S* Ask the individual to SMILE.

T * Ask the person to TALK to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE(Coherently ) (i.e. It is sunny out today)

R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out their tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call 911 (for US) or call 999 (for M'sia) immediately !! and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

The World Best Kept Auto Secret.

This is very, very good. I never realized of this before

I have been driving (legally) for more 15 years. Anybody would think that I would have noticed the little secret on my dash that was staring me right in the face the whole time. I didn't and I bet you probably haven't either.

Quick question, what side of your car is your gas tank?
If you are anything like me, you probably can't remember right away. My solution is to uncofortably stick my head out the window, strain my neck and look. If you don't do this in your own car you definetly have done it in a borrowed or rental car.
Well ladies and gentlemen, I'm going to share with you my little secret so you will no longer look panick on your way to the gas station or put your neck at risk of uncomfort or injury.

If you look at your gas guage, you will see a small icon of a gas pump. The handle of the gas pump will extend out on either the left or right side of the pump. If your tank is on the left, the handle will be on the left. If your tank is on the right, the handle will be on the right (see photo above). It is that simple!
I don't know how you feel right now but when I found out this morning I felt cheated!
Why don't the dealers share such importnant information with car buyers? I don't understand why this isn't in the drivers ed manual? I don't get why any mechanic I have ever been too or know has even thought of mentioning this to me? The only possible explantion can be that all these people probably don't even know!
Go out and share the worlds best kept auto secret with your friends as this is information is way too important to be kept secret.

First Malaysian Cosmonaut To Space

10th October 2007 has become a history of Malaysia, when the first Malaysian cosmonaut (angkasawan), Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor Sheikh Mustapha, 35, was launched to the International Space Station (ISS), in rocket Soyuz TMA-11.
This historical event held in Baikanor Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, Russia. The lift-off was at 7:21pm local time (9:21pm Malaysian Time)

Fig: Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar waving before boarding Soyuz TMA-11.

Besides him, the mission to ISS is accompanied by Komander Peggy Whitson (USA) and flight engineer, Yuri Malenchenko (Russia).

Nine minutes after the lift-off, the rocket reached the altitude of 200km from earth and the main control centre near Moscow announced "Space-shuttle TMA-11 is in orbit".
Visual from the cockpit was shown to the whole country (live broadcast on several M'sian channels). The space shuttle will reached the ISS in 48 hours at the altitude of 360km from earth.

These three cosmonauts will be in ISS for 10 days with Dr Sheikh Muszaphar conducting three experiments involving 3 main components ie. "cells in space", microbs in space" and "protein crystalization" before returning to earth on 21st October 2007.

Malaysians are so proud to have a Malaysian in the space, proving that nothing is impossible to achieve a big success.

"This is an area which is usually explored by developed countries. I see this as a big success for the nation as there are Malaysians who are qualified to be astronauts." - Dato' Najib Tun Razak (Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia)

Fasting Month is near to the end for this year (1428 Hijr). (The event to watch the early moon of Syawal will be held on 11th October 2007. By calculation of astronomy, the first day of Syawal will be on 13th October 2007.)

I would like to wish to all Muslims around the world "A Happy Eid Ul-Fitr". And I would like to ask for forgiveness, if some of the articles might hurt someone.
Hopefully the whole world will be more cheerish from day to day, World Without War....

The World's Longest Ferrari !!!

Believe it or not, the world's first-ever Ferrari stretch limo: a 23-foot 360 Modena with eight seats and the biggest electric gullwing doors have ever seen.
£200,000 was spent by Style Limousines in Manchester to modify this rear-engined Ferrari 360 Modena.
Those gullwing doors are nine-foot long and were designed by one of the teams responsible for the Mercedes SLR McLaren.

All the eight seats are made of carbon-fibre buckets, with five-point race harnesses - which really needed when the 3.6-litre V8 remains, with its 395bhp roars and accelerates the mega-Ferrari to 60mph in under six seconds.
This F360 stretch is not the only unique limousine in the Style fleet. It also includes a stretch Hummer painted bright pink, as well as other stretch Hummers, Range Rovers and Chrysler 300s.

The SkyWalk over Grand Canyon West is Now Open....

THE SKYWALK, is the latest tourist main attraction in Grand Canyon West. The cantilevered walkway, which is made its media debut Tuesday, is a mere 4,000 feet above the bottom of the canyon. It opens to the public on March 28, 2007.
It cost approximately $30 million to build over a couple of years.

The open-air skywalk extends 70 feet out from the rim of the canyon, where it's anchored deep in the rock landscape. It will be open from dawn to dusk, and the price of admission is $25 per person. As many as 120 people will be allowed on the bridge at any given time; each will have to wear special shoe covers to prevent slipping and scratching.

The skywalk and Grand Canyon West are owned and operated by the Hualapai tribe, which is hoping for an economic boost from the new landmark. The site is in Arizona, about 70 miles northwest of Kingman, and about 120 miles east of Las Vegas.

The U-shaped structure can safely withstand 100-mph winds from eight directions and an 8.0-magnitude earthquake within 50 miles.

Most people will go out onto the skywalk to look down. Here's an unexpected view, looking up from below the glass platform. The 2-inch-thick glass floor is a joint effort of industrial giant DuPont and manufacturer Saint Gobain.


In this Holy Ramadhan, I would like to wish all the muslims around the world "A Blessed Ramadhan".

Since this month is a sacred month for muslims, "someone is taking a leave" & will be tied-up for the whole month....

Love Has No Border....

Please hug me tightly darling


An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which she carried across her neck.

One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water.

At the end of the long walks f rom the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.

Of course , the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments.

But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it could only do half of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream "I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house."

The old woman smiled, "Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side?"

"That's because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them."

"For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table.

Without you being just t he way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house."

Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it's the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding.

You've just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them.

So, to all of my crackpot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers on your side of the path!

Miri City - "The Oil Town"

I have got a lot of people asking me about any special places in Miri City (in Sarawak, Malaysia or also called as West Borneo). Some of the places in Miri can be found in other websites, such as the Mulu Cave, Mulu National Park, Niah Cave, Lambir National Park, Bario Highland, and Loagan Bunut National Park.

So, I would like to add some other places which is a must-visit place, which located on the Kanada Hill, Miri, Sarawak (don't know how they got the Kanada name).

1. Grand Old Lady - The First Well
This is a very historical place for Malaysia, because it is the First Well drilled in 10th August 1910. Drilled by Shell, big oil company which still remain in Sarawak as Sarawak Shell Berhad.

2. Time Capsul (in Malay: Kapsul Masa)
The Time Capsul was launched on the 20th May 2005. It contained the "Book Of Miri City Officialisation" ("Buku Cenderamata Perayaan Pengisytiharan Bandaraya Miri") which will be opened on the 20th May 2105 (100 years later after the launch).

**Writer & his kids.

So, since this year is the VISIT MALAYSIA YEAR 2007, don't miss your chance...

Making A Baby...


The Smiths were unable to conceive children and decided to use a surrogate father to start their family. On the day the proxy father was to arrive, Mr. Smith kissed his wife goodbye and said, "Well, I'm off now. The man should be here soon."

Half an hour later, just by chance, a door-to-door baby photographer happened to ring the doorbell, hoping to make a sale. "Good morning, Ma'am", he said, "I've come to..."

"Oh, no need to explain," Mrs. Smith cut in, embarrassed, "I've been expecting you."

"Have you really?" said the photographer. "Well, that's good. Did you know babies are my specialty?"

"Well that's what my husband and I had hoped. Please come in and have a seat".
After a moment she asked, blushing, "Well, where do we start?"

"Leave everything to me. I usually try two in the bathtub, one on the couch, and perhaps a couple on the bed. And sometimes the living room floor is fun. You can really spread out there."

"Bathtub, living room floor? No wonder it didn't work out for Harry and me!"

"Well, Ma'am, none of us can guarantee a good one every time. But if we try several different positions and I shoot from six or seven angles, I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results."

"My, that's a lot!", gasped Mrs. Smith.

"Ma'am, in my line of work a man has to take his time. I'd love to be In and out in five minutes, but I'm sure you'd be disappointed with that."

"Don't I know it," said Mrs. Smith quietly.
The photographer opened his briefcase and pulled out a portfolio of his baby pictures. "This was done on the top of a bus," he said.

"Oh, my God!" Mrs. Smith exclaimed, grasping at her throat.

"And these twins turned out exceptionally well - when you consider their mother was so difficult to work with."

"She was difficult?" asked M rs. Smith.

"Yes, I'm afraid so. I finally had to take her to the park to get the job done right. People were crowding around four and five deep to get a good look"

"Four and five deep?" said Mrs. Smith, her eyes wide with amazement.

"Yes", the photographer replied. "And for more than three hours, too. The mother was constantly squealing and yelling - I could hardly concentrate, and when darkness approached I had to rush my shots. Finally, when the squirrels began nibbling on my equipment, I just had to pack it all in."

Mrs. Smith leaned forward. "Do you mean they actually chewed on your,"

"It's true, Ma'am, yes.. Well, if you're ready, I'll set-up my tripod and we can get to work right away."


"Oh yes, Ma'am. I need to use a tripod to rest my Canon on. It's much too big to be held in the hand very long."

Mrs. Smith fainted !

Doctor Terminology

What doctors say, and what they're really thinking:

"This should be taken care of right away."
I'd planned a trip to Hawaii next month but this is so easy and profitable that I want to fix it before it cures itself.

"Welllllll, what have we here...?"
He has no idea and is hoping you'll give him a clue.

"Let me check your medical history."
I want to see if you've paid your last bill before spending any more time with you.

"Why don't we make another appointment later in the week."
I'm playing golf this afternoon, and this a waste of time.
I need the bucks, so I'm charging you for another office visit.

"We have some good news and some bad news."
The good news is, I'm going to buy that new BMW. The bad news is, you're going to pay for it.

"Let's see how it develops."
Maybe in a few days it will grow into something that can be cured.

"Let me schedule you for some tests."
I have a forty percent interest in the lab.

"I'd like to have my associate look at you."
He's going through a messy divorce and owes me a bundle.

"I'd like to prescribe a new drug."
I'm writing a paper and would like to use you for a guinea pig.

"If it doesn't clear up in a week, give me a call."
I don't know what it is. Maybe it will go away by itself.

"That's quite a nasty looking wound."
I think I'm going to throw up.

"This may smart a little."
Last week two patients bit off their tongues.

"Well, we're not feeling so well today, are we...?"
I'm stalling for time. Who are you and why are you here?

"This should fix you up."
The drug company slipped me some big bucks to prescribe this stuff.

"Everything seems to be normal."
Rats! I guess I can't buy that new beach condo after all.

"I'd like to run some more tests."
I can't figure out what's wrong. Maybe the kid in the lab can solve this one.

"Do you suppose all this stress could be affecting your nerves?"
You're crazier'n an outhouse rat. Now, if I can only find a shrink who'll split fees with me ...

"There is a lot of that going around."
My God, that's the third one this week. I'd better learn something about this.

"If those symptoms persist, call for an appointment."
I've never heard of anything so disgusting. Thank God I'm off next week.

Hehehehe.... For Doctors, Cheer Up Guys....

Next Mercedes Sport Car - SLC

As you already know by now Mercedes and Mclaren split after the SLR didn’t have the success everyone expected. As a result, the next sport car from Mercedes will be built without McLaren’s help.

The next sport car will be called SLC and will be built in cooperation with DTM. It will be based on the next-generation SL and will be a front/mid-engine car with rear-wheel drive model. A first concept will be unveiled next year at Geneva Motor Show.

The SLC will have a fixed carbon roof to lower the center of gravity and gullwing doors to link it with the SLR. The SLC will be a 2-seater, although one of the design goals is that the car provide more than adequate space for two people and their luggage.

It will be powered by a modified 6.2-liter AMG V-8 engine with an output of 700 hp. Price will be around $200,000 and will be limited to only 500 units.

Tire Safety
Studies of tire safety show that maintaining proper tire pressure, observing tire and vehicle load limits,and inspecting tires for cuts, slashes, and other irregularities are the most important things you can do to avoid tire failure, such as tread separation or blowout and flat tires. These actions, along with other care and maintenance activities, can also:
- Improve vehicle handling
- Help protect you and others from avoidable breakdowns and accidents
- Improve fuel economy
- Increase the life of your tires.

What Information’s you must
know about your Car Tires

• Temperature Resistance
• Traction
• Tread wear
• Max. Load Capacity /tire
• Speed Symbol
• Manufacturing Date

Where you can find these information ?

Temperature Resistance

These letters indicates a tire's resistance to heat.
From highest to lowest, a tire's resistance to heat is graded as "A", "B", or "C".

Symbol Area
A - Hot Area
B - Normal Weather Area
C - Cold Area

Treadwear Number

This number indicates the tire's wear rate.
The higher the treadwear number is, the longer it should take for the tread to wear down.
For example, a tire graded 400 should last twice as long as a tire graded 200.


This letter indicates a tire's ability to stop on wet pavement. A higher graded tire should allow you to stop your car on wet roads in a shorter distance than a tire with a lower grade. Traction is graded from highest to lowest as "AA","A", "B", and "C".

Max. Load Capacity & tire Speed Symbol

Number indicates the max. load that can be carried by the tire. Symbol indicates the
max. Speed at which a tire is designed to be driven for extended periods of time.

Manufacturing Date

This Tire has been made in Week 37 from year 2005

Vehicle tires have a 4-year validity period from their Date of Manufacture (DOM). Thereafter, the tire expires and may burst whilst in use. How to find out whether your tire has expired? Check for a stamp like this: (*2603*) There is an asterisk at the beginning and at the end of this serial number.
The first two numbers 2 6 will tell which week of the year has it been manufactured.
NB: One year has 52 weeks. The last two numbers represent the year of make. Therefore, *2603* shows that the said tire is manufactured in the 26th week of the year 2003. *2699* this shows that the tire is made in the 26th week of 1999.
Check all your tires for safety purposes. Do not use expired tires. They are likely to burst (especially when running in hot weather) because the rubber component may have hardened and cracked.
