UEFA 2008

The new trophy for the UEFA Euro 2008 tournament
Just came across these few days seem the traffic kind of easing without many cars on the road. Is it because of Euro 2008 or due to lately fuel price increase? Personally i think both also play the part.

Everyone seem to sleep early in prepare for the late kick off matches of Euro 2008. The earliest match starts at 12am which most peoples were already sound in slept, whereas the following match starts at 2.30am where majority peoples were having sweet dream counting their money or dating someone in dream. Except those hardcore football fanzy or gambler holding their hand for the team they bet on or support on. Well, who really does care about this Euro if your neither both of them. Anyway, maybe just “Ooh, who win or who lose?” on the next day. At the end of the tournament, “Wow, XXX Team finally won!”. So? My pocket or wallet won’t full disregard which team won, so better have a good night sleep much practical! By the way, I do hope Holland could win this Euro2008 as I’m supporter for Holland team. Viva Holland!

Hmm…RM2.70/L of RON97 petrol, sounds a little bit ridiculous in Malaysia as we are one of the crude oil exporter country. Thus we still being the scapegoat for the price increase in crude oil by our government. THANKS FOR OUR “HELPFUL & RESPONSIBLE” GOVERNMENT! New rebate scheme is useless for those frequent traveller like me. Because of this I have to train hard on my right foot to the accelerate pedal. Keep the car movin smooth and without pushing too hard on it. Sigh, some good points maybe can help on reducing receive speed summonses and probably can squeeze a little extra mileages. Safety one thing, perhaps it can improve your joy of driving by seeing things you never had seen when you’re on speeds. Yeah, right! How ironically! It is not country seaside with beautiful scenery to stop-look, majority just some same old shop houses.

Back to the title, so peoples are cutting short all those unnecessary trips to save fuel? To do that by taking our crappy public transports or car pool? I doubt on that as nowadays human is too dependent on their car than their legs. Even within a few hundreds meter they still prefer to drive over. Actually can’t blame on them as crime or snatch thugs happened anytime anywhere, better in protection by a square box than exposed to them. Perhaps they all just stay at home and sleep early for a healthy life rather wasted fuel hanging outside.

So at the moment I think they still haven’t overcame the aftershock of the fuel prices hike, but gradually after some while the busy traffic will resumed no matter how. With in progress Euro2008, hopefully coming weeks the traffic still smooth flowing and easing to drive on. Get my finger cross!

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Please Click On Image for more Photos.

One of the famous tourism and 2nd largest city in Thailand. It located at approx. 700km north from Bangkok, among some of the highest moutains in the country. Don’t worry, I’m not going to repeat what already had in others website found on Internet, for more details or history of Chiang Mai, simply ‘google’ for it, you’ll find it bunch of websites listed.

So what I’m gonna write here is about my tour to Chiang Mai with my buddies, buddies tour instead Chiang Mai tour. Haha… We went on the 22nd March to 25th March, a 4 days 3 nights tour. If you have times or longer leaves available, perhaps you can stay 1 day longer, a 5days 4 nights tour as we missed some places not visit like the famous Long Neck Tribe Village, which it needed 1 full day to travel.

We booked Air Asia free and easy package which cost us approx. RM600 per couple on a round trip flight ticket plus taxes. Whereas I felt sympathy on my another buddy because he had to pay double our price which RM1200 because he booked later than us, but he’s a great buddy because kept his promises just to follow us for that trip. Well done, dude! 😉

On the accomodation, we booked earlier thru internet with a fairly cheaper discounted price. For the same hotel, you got discounted price if go Online, whereas you’ll get higher fixed rate prices if go local. So my advice is, beter search around for a discounted price online before you go over, suggesting you take a visit on this website, it has hotels around the world with customers feedback. You can read on the feedbacks and judge the hotel comfortability and overall rating before you decide on which hotels to stay. It offered best discounted internet rate for various hotels, hassle free and reliable which lessen your headache. Booked and check-in on the day you arrive, easily done. You dont have to carry all your luggages around to find hotels if you have done booking earlier. We choose Royal Lanna Hotel because it located centrally of the famous Night Bazaar (night market) within 5 mins walking distance, whcih easier for the girls shopping.

And for the places we visit, I won’t explain it in details. As someone did said, “picture said thousand words”, so i just post some pictures to say it all.

Basically those are the places we visited, but there are a few more places we went but it is impossible for me to upload it all. The rest will leave it to you to explore. In short, it is a great place to visit for a sighseeing or shopping tour. Plan your vacation properly, best time to visit should be at year end where the weather much easing and colder(winter), and also on weekend where the Sunday Market is available. Simply drop me some comments if you need to know more about Chiang Mai (not about history pls, abt the tour only).

Aquarius

Aquarius Characteristics and Aquarius Personality

If you ever met someone that appeared to be charming, funny, tantalizing, and intelligent, it was probably an Aquarian Sign. They usually live in their own minds, filled with a world of ideas. Although they seem to possess a certain detached quality and may sometimes come across as removed from feelings, they are warm, outgoing, and very concerned with others.

These Humanitarians often are wary of emotion and like to deal rationally with life. Optimism is a big part of their nature, along with the knack of friendliness and the mastery of flirtation. If you want to get an Aquarian attention, you will need to intellectually stimulate them. Good conversation, including debates are a favorite past time of the Water Bearer. Open minded, People from Aquarius Astrology can accept criticism and understand others perceptions about things. If you have a problemus, they are always willing to listen, though after awhile, enough is enough. Tolerance is a big part of an Aquarians Sign temperament. Aquarians are slow to take offense, never jealous and never over emotional.

When planning a date with an Aquarius, you don’t have to go out of your way to impress them. Just about anything pleases them. From sharing a picnic lunch to a candle lit dinner, Chinese or Mexican, it doesn’t matter, as long as variety is on the menu. In time, a relationship can grow, built on trust. Never nag an Aquarius about a mistake. A mistake is unimportant to them, so don’t harp on it. If Aquarians are constantly told what is wrong, they will begin to feel unappreciated and the relationship can get rocky.

In any relationship, the Aquarian may find it hard to give of themselves but will always remain loyal and devoted to a worthy partner. When the Aquarius makes a promise, it’s usually never broken. However, if you become demanding, and critical, they may start to wonder elsewhere.

Aquarians want a partner to share in the adventures, along with the challenges, that life has to offer. Life with them will never be boring.
