This morning 9.22am my hand phone rang.
I remembered that I set my alarm at 10am, but anyway it wasn't the alarm, but a call from my friend.
William called me to inform me a bad news.
Bad news, I thought someone we know in common has died of cancer. I've just told him recently that this uncle that we know of is having cancer, so I thought that he has received some bad news.
But i was wrong.
He told me that one our friend's father got kidnapped.
He received a call from this friend, "S" early in the morning of 5 am. He rushed to PJ (where she's stays since she's studying there) to fetch her back here. And now William is with S's family.
He asked me whether my father knows any loan shark because S needs money to save her father. My father said of all the people why loan shark? And paying them doesn't mean that they would release him. Therefore the only way is to make a police report.
The next time i called William he was driving, fetching S's mother to get money. I asked William to convinced them to make a police report since it's the only way they could do.
“I think they’ve reported”, he said.
It was said that the melay I kidnappers demanded a hundred thousand at 5pm. After 5pm, I called William again. They were all still waiting for the call; guess that the plan wasn’t moving smooth.
And policemen already helping them out, part of the money were brought by them. I talked to S and she couldn’t do anything but to wait for the kidnappers help. The last place she knows her father went was sungai buloh, where he went to meet the client.
William was helping out copying down the number of the notes. They couldn’t do anything, but wait. No news yet until now.
And I can’t do anything too.
Suddenly I feel so helpless. There’s nothing that I could do. This is the first time where such a horrible thing occurs on the people around me.
This world is full danger. Imagine what if this happened on you. What would you do?
Pray hard for S’s father to be released unharmed. And pray hard for those kidnappers to get caught and burn in hell.
340# 1/100 Gundam Kyrios
Another filler. Really nothing to talk about recently.
Oh well, i think I'll just write another reveiw to keep this site running. Or this is what i usually do?
Bought 1/100 Kyrios early of the month and i pushed myself hard to complete it within 1 day. Really rush because i'm having less time to spend for gunplas.
Assembling part is a piece of cake, but the painting part is a pain in the ass.
If compared to Exia and Dynames of the same grade, Kyrios certainly needs more painting. The shoulders, forearm, waist, torso, ankle, feet, back... Almost all parts required the grey painting.
Yellow is also needed for the medial tibial part (what the heck am i saying...). That part is really tiny and for sure there will be excessive paints to be scrapped off using the modelling knife.
Articulation is good especially the legs. Maybe that's necessary since it has the ability to transform into the wave rider mode.
The beam sub machine gun can be held in the hand or mounted at the forearm. Again, for the transformation mode i think.
Two beam sabers are mounted at its back. But Kyrios isn't a beam saber mobile suit so can forget about it...
But it still look cool with it, even though I'd prefer only Exia to have swords.
The very first shield i know of which can transform. From a flat shield it can turn into a forceps (lol) where a hot blade shoot out from the inside.
This weapon killed one pity fella in one of the episodes (can't remember which episode, but feel so sorry for the victim). Personally i think this transformed shield do not serve much functions other than torturing people. (Inserting the hot blade slowing until the victim die)
Plane mode. Or does it called as the Wave Rider mode like the Zeta? Or yes now I'm reminded that i still haven't write for the MG Zeta which i have done assembling earlier than this Kyrios.
Anyway the plane mode looks ok, very streamlined. But the wings are a little bit too small for me. Some say it pwns Zeta's wave rider, but i do think that Zeta looks better in plane mode.
Beam sub machine gun and shield is mounted at the side during the plane mode. I found that the plane mode is a little bit funny because the pilot cockpit is at the torso, so what is the front part of the plane for which looks like a cockpit?
Cosmetic design? But anyway it's still look good nonetheless.
If the opponent shoot at the head of the plane and thought that the pilot is dead then it would be a joke. Because the cockpit isn't over there!
By the way, since there are so many clear parts used in Kyrios so i had to mask these parts before i spray a layer of acrylic top coat onto it.
I didn't spend money for the masking tape so i used the normal sellotape.
A triumph into air.
2 more episodes for Gundam 00 first season. But the merchandise will keep on releasing, how poisonous they are.
Still got 1/100 virtue to complete the line up. But i doubt whether i have time to fix it or not.

339# Redang 2008
I don't feel like staring with this line, but, oh well. It's been a while since i last updated.
Streamyx is back after repeating my situation to the streamyx operator for 6 times. I got so bored repeating my line again and again. And finally, after 2 months plus without internet, the line is back.
Cut the crap, i may write in detail next time to let you know how good streamyx can be.
Don't know what to start with so i decided to write about my trip to redand with my batchmates during our cny break.
I remember that my last visit to Redang island was the June of 2005. It was fun because that was my first snorkeling experience. Plus it was relaxing because we had just finished our A levels exam, and during that time, lots of people from taylors college went there too at the same time.
I can't swim. My hydrophobic status doesn't allow me to swim with my feet off ground, but somehow i managed to get over it and hold tight the life jacket to prevent from drowning.
For my first visit to redang with my collegemates in the year of 2006, we took the bus to kuala terengganu. We spent our first night in the bus where it was quite tiring. Now this time we all took flight there, since everybody can fly nowadays.
I booked a wrong ticket and i only realised the mistake 2 weeks after i booked it. That took me RM100 extra just to change the date of my flight, pain.
Laguna is a good stay and i don't mind to stay there for a second time. The place is beautiful and affordable. A deluxe bedroom has 4 beds provided even though we have only 2 person in a room. The extra beds are for...?
Don't feel like guessing something haunting now...
7 rooms for 14 of us is too many.
I guess we went there during a wrong time. The monsoon season wasn't really over yet so the weather didn't look great.
The first day we managed to go to the sea to snorkel, in the mild rain. But that was fantastic was i could really see what in front of me even though i couldn't wear my specs. Because i wore my contact lens which i took 30 minutes to put in with yum yau's help.
Food over there was great too. There were no salty juice or salty coffee which i have tasted during my last visit. Guess the water filter is working fine now.
I guess the only thing to do at night is to play cards and drink. And we did it. But i didn't expect us to tell ghost story in the dark room.
It was kind of freaky to do such a thing at such a place though.
Like i mentioned, the weather wasn't good for boating. The sky started to look funny and the sea started to roar on the second day.
I heard that flights from KL had to U turn back because of the bad weather. And boat services back to kuala terengganu were not available.
Monsoon huh. Now i have experienced the power of mother nature.
Sree looking to the horizon.
Furthermore, the changes in weather caused our snorkeling sessions on the second day to be cancelled. It was kind of sad because the session at marine park is the highlight and we couldn't make it. The deep sea ones is good as well though.
The weather got so bad until we could only hang around in the resort for the whole day. Play ball at the pool, walk around the beach, play ball again, walk again...
We were worried that we might not able to go back as scheduled and waste our flight ticket.
Luckily the sky turned to be better on the third day and we managed to go home.
During the first and only session of deep sea snorkeling, a few of us, including me, got sea sick. I nearly puked. The wave was too strong and i wasn't looking far enough to distract my dizziness.
It would be better if we sat in front of the boat, i mean, outside. I think that would cause less sea sickness. But wave was too strong and we had to sit inside.
The journey back in the ferry was really terrible. The boat was flying most of the times. I felt very sick that time. I needed to use the toilet so i walked carefully in the instable cabin and trying hard to stabilise myself.
I didn't puke until i opened the gent's door. To have someone in the toilet shitting without locking the door, the smell is more than enough to trigger of my vomiting mechanism.
So i sat down outside the toilet, on other's luggages, and puked in a plastic bag.
Son of a bitch never learn to lock toilet door.
And someone else puked too. Kevin had a glass of orange juice that he drank in the morning back from his stomach into a cup.
I wonder would he find other things that he ate during the morning in there.
Anyway, no matter how sick the journey was, no matter how wasted that we missed other 2 snorkeling sessions, this trip to redang was quite memorable. It would be the last time i hang out with my batchmates before we go to different universities for our clinical year.
By the way, i think of having a road trip to penang again, by map...
