Whoa!! Super way to loose weight?? Getting full using brain power!

If you imagine eating something, you will be less hungry for it!

Enough hotdogs for me!

That was what researchers concluded.

They asked people to think about eating M&M
and another group to think about something else. A control group was asked to think of only M&M not eating it.

They found out that people who thought of eating M&M ate less when presented with the real thing, while people in the other two groups had more of the cute stuff!

Getting ideas?

Romantic things to do in Selangor - Our Selangor Story! Part 3/5

Ah yes, what is a trip to Selangor without visiting the most unique icon in the state?

Welcome to Sunway Pyramid!

Where else in the world can you find a shopping mall with a Sphinx and a pyramid?? This makes Sunway one in the world! You won't find any mummies here but you will find:


Yes, you will find me and Babe and many other people in the place. A romantic place? Well, why not?? Shopping with you bb is kind romantic (only not more than 2 hours please!)

Huhuh, before you get anywhere, let me take this time to thank Amelia who has been our organiser for My Selangor Story 2010! You can read the post here! Warning, may contain delicious stuff!


Thank you to our MSS Mummy!

Next, after indulging in some shopping, you can head down to the beach! Yes! Sunway has the only indoor beach in South East Asia!

Sunway Lagoon has been around for many years, but then, every other year, they seem to add new things there. Don;t miss the opportunity to go down the slides with your Bb! Hehe, the dry park is alright, but I prefer the wet park and the extreme park!

After that, if the fun in the sun is not enough, you can head to the many entertainment spots.


What is a romantic place without movies and good food??

And free wireless internet access from Sunway!

At night, there are clubs and bars, and most importantly, that beautiful scenery to take cute shots together!
How do you get more romantic than that??

How to surprise a girl!

Step 1: Get your friends to buy a cake on her birthday and keep the cake in the freezer so she does not find out!

Step 2: Knock on her door on midnight when shes unsuspecting! Sing happy birthday and light de candles!

Step 3: Turn off the lights and let her make a wish! Blow the candles out!
.... I wish for Snow!

*Alternatively, buy a cream cake or creampie and smack it on her face!
Warning: might not work for every person... but would be fun!

Step 4: Cut the cake...!

Thats how you surprise a girl! Happy Birthday to Ellie! Blessed birthday!

Ooooo... the wish! The wish for snow came true!
So we went down to enjoy some ice ice!
Wondering what are a bunch of Master's students doing at 1 am?
Vaining of course!
Contrary to popular belief, this shot was just a test shot... not vaining or anything.
London is not a very romantic place at all, cause so many lampposts! but they are nice for shooting!

Anyway, it snowed quite a bit so we decided to snowball fight!
Before we knew it, there were like 10 people throwing white balls all around! The guys on the 1st floors had the high ground but we had the numbers! Hope his room is full of snow! Ironically, we were told off at about 2am for making too much noise!
Oh well, time to go.. and for his final act, Reuben decides to strip for the ice!
Its gonna be a white Chirstmas!

How to make your friend's homosexual, the Gay pill?

How to know if you are gay?

Well, what do you know, there are easier ways than going to Thailand!

Here's the trick! Mercury!

Well, do not try it at home because it is poisonous! But it has been reported that mercury can turn some birds gay!

Perhaps if might work for humans?

The satu batang there is 10 microns across, or ten times thinner than the average ketiak moh!

Ten more days to deadline! Arrr!

Top 5 reasons to study at Imperial

Well this is ackward, I find so many juniors and kids wanting to graduate from Imperial College London. Well, I decided to come up with a list of reasons why you should apply! (I'm not getting paid for this)

1. It is in London!
Well, duh. London is considered the capital of the world and it can be rightly proclaimed. The Queen lives here so does David Beckham and Elton John. JK Rowling and Harry Potter lives here and so does Amy Winehouse. So many stars have a place in London like Madonna and Micheal Jackson was supposed to perform here! Safe to say, London is the happening place!

2. There are lots of guys!
If you are a girl or homo, then this will be the best place for you! Stay our of medicine though! Too many girls! Comes in all shapes and sizes. Enjoy the buffet!

3. Recruiters love Imperial!
Yes they do and on average, more than 80% of engineering students get jobs after they graduate! Most recruiters even go directly to the departments to recruit specific disciplines and you will find the big names here like Exxon, Shell, BP, Azko, ICI, McKinsey, Rolls Royce, Boston Consulting, RBS, Llyods, Citi and a lot more!

4. The fees!
Well, if you are local then its F**** cheap education so stop complaining! So cheap that when the government proposed to raise the fees by 3 times people start complaining. Its still cheaper than education in the USA so live with it! If you are on scholarship, which most people are, den even better!

5. The rankings!
Ah, the senseless numbers that put all the top Uni's in one page. Why not, have a good degree from the top 3 uni in the UK and have braggin rights!

Well, it would not be fair if I dont look at the other side, so here are the

Top 5 reasons why not to study at Imperial!

1. It is in London!
Oh gosh, that means its a friggin pricey place, the most expensive the UK perhaps. There are not many people from the UK in London, mostly Arabs shopping in Harrods, Chinese in the universities, and Indians in the clubs! Not to mention that Oxford street is a big cigarette butt, making London the biggest cigarette dump I've seen!

2. There are lots of guys!
If you are a guy...welcome to the sausage fest! Sad reality that engineering is a guy thing... with gender equality and that stuff not really better at all. Thank god you were not in the 1960s. Must have been a man club of some sort!

3. Recruiters love Imperial!
Yes they do and on average you have to compete with the rest of the uni! All 20,000 of them! Good luck! Where are all the stupid people when you need them!

4. The fees!
If you are foreign, it WILL burn a hole in your pocket!

5. The rankings!
Hmmm, wonder why is UCL climbing up? Perhaps might be the old lecturers that we have or just the way the uni is run like a profit making centre.

Now you heard both sides of the story! Happy applying kids!

Top 5 ways to destress!

This past week, my head feels like the below picture. The problem was, I could not find any reason to be stressed or to be anxious.

So, I decided to find out the best ways to destress!

1) Chocolate

Okay, chocolate suppose to make you feel nicer but seems that I have grown immune to the caffeine kick that it has... sad.

2) Movies

After unsuccessfully trying to destress using my dark friends, I decided to watch some movies in the hopes of feeling less stressed... So I went to watch an old movie... All the way from 1998, the Truman Show by Jim Carey!

Nope, even if it was a nice show, it did not help decrease the amount of stress. Immune to movies....

3) Youtube

What else do you do when you are stressed! Watch shows on Youtube in the hopes of finding some entertainment. After video number 5, I dosed off.

4) Stress ball

Haha, well, these lil things are really nice to squeeze. I prefer to throw them around against the wall. Hard. Then I started throwing it to the ceilng and then the ground. After 5 minutes, the stress ball was gone, hiding under some huge furniture. Oh well, at least I found something that decreased my stress.

5) Laundry!

Who knew doing the laundry can be so relaxing and destressing! Maybe its the feeling of clean sheets and socks! Who cares, it least it seems to work and for a good cause as well!

Boston Consulting Group Interview, London!

Oh sheet! First interview of the year and why did it have to be BCG!

The stupid me did not know that BCG is one of the most established consulting groups in the world, working for governments and all other huge corporations. I also did not know that the company had 70 offices around the world.

Ranked among the second best consultancy firm to work for, I think i should be preparing for tomorrow!

If you are interested in how to do well to their standards, read this!

Unfortunately, first interview i screwed! Sheet!

Oh well, note to self:

1) Train doing math without using a calculator
2) Do not trade in the stock markets the day before
3) Actually practice all answers and the interview
4) Prepare for Why this company and why consulting questions!

Hopefully I remember all the best interview practices

Objective of the interview

Things to prepare

Romantic things to do in Selangor, Our Selangor Story! Part 2/5

On the road to more romantic things you can do in Selangor...

Following My Selangor Story as a guide, a good place to go in Selangor is definitely the Royal Selangor factory!

Why would one find it any fun to be at a metal factory? Well, besides having the biggest puiter mug in the world,

I would say it would be about value. Why is gold so expensive? How about diamonds or how about silver or platinum. We do not see why these things are so expensive or valued until we see how they are made! 
At this factory, you get to make your own creations and I can say I was not easy for Bb and me!

We managed to engrave our names on a metal plate and turned it into a bowl! Once you realise the hard work and effort into making such ornaments, you will appreciate (hopefully) if a guy gives a girl some precious metal! Gold and silver included!
Anyway, you get to tour the factory together and see how other people do it for a change!

Before you get bored, you should check out the museums inside and have a welcome drink in some really expensive set of cups!

Another unusually romantic place in Selangor, or another romantic place in Malaysia for that matter is definitely Genting Highlands!

Usually, the nightlife there is nothing short of amazing! An escape from the hectic city, you can indulge in some well deserved entertainment! There are concerts and shows all year round but the Dazzle show was one really Romantic thing to do in Genting!
The shows are held at the Pavillion, close to the First World Hotel, the largest hotel in the world!

Make sure you get a good seat! We got the front row just to make sure, and Bb even brought her glasses to make sure she did not miss a second of the show!
Of course, some of the themes were romance as well! To find out about the night, read more in this post!
If you consider eating romantic, then do not miss the cafes and restaurants! This trip, we found our self in Maxim, one of the big dining areas in Genting!
The desserts were fantastic and looks so yummy!
While you are up in the mountains, might as well drop down to Chin Swee Temple at the spot with the best scenery in Genting! Praying at this temple will gurantee you building your own company based on casinos and high altitudes!
Hehe, Jing Yi in the picture. Hmmmm... well, three is a crowd... No matter, friends or no friends, there is always something in store. To read more about Chin Swee, go to this post!The other beautiful thing about the place is the lights! After sunset, the lights kick in and set the place on fire in an amazing glow!
Therefore, go for the lights! They are really nice to look at!
If you are hungry, just pop by into one of the other makan places around! Psst, the casino is next door!
After your night at the affordable rooms, you can get breakfast in one of the most serene places with the amazing view!
Check out the First World Lounge!
Have a nice trip!
Safe to say, there are more than just romantic things to do in Genting Highlands. In fact, some people go there just to be alone. However, being such a popular place,  I have not been to genting once without meeting someone familiar! Shows that it is a place people escape to, albeit unsucessfully! Anyway, find out more from this post!
PS: Dont forget your cameras!
