The Clouds Are Blue

Being busy, I managed to find sometime to keep my mind off stressful stuffs. In doing that, I buried myself in thoughts of others - what I've seen, heard, felt personally or from others. And so, I came up with something short, a simple story that tells more than its word-count:

"how did I meet her? It started in a low cost flight.. A careless flight attendant bumped into me, made me drop my pen.. Just when I picked it up, the blazing sun struck my eyes and that's where I saw her.. Staring out into the blue sky and white fluffy clouds, her soft and warm eyes melted my heart and that's where it occurred to me, "where has she been all my life?" I couldn't get my eyes off her and so I started a conversation with her with "clouds so blue eh?" without realizing my mistake... She laughed and that's how we began our story *smiles*"

Joke That Made My Day

While reading around off the net for some work of mine, I happen to stumble across a joke, in which I'd like to share it out:

A tourist walked into a pet shop and was looking at the animals on display. While he was there, another customer walked in and said to the shopkeeper, "I'll have a C monkey please." The shopkeeper nodded, went over to a cage at the side of the shop and took out a monkey. He fitted a collar and leash, handed it to the customer, saying, "That'll be £5,000."

The customer paid and walked out with his monkey. Startled, the tourist went over to the shopkeeper and said, "That was a very expensive monkey. Most of them are only a few hundred pounds. Why did it
cost so much?" The shopkeeper answered, "Ah, that monkey can program in C - very fast, tight code, no bugs, well worth the money."

The tourist looked at a monkey in another cage. "Hey, that one's even more expensive! £10,000! What does it do?" "Oh, that one's a C++ monkey; it can manage object-oriented programming, Visual C++, even some Java. All the really useful stuff," said the shopkeeper.

The tourist looked around for a little longer and saw a third monkey in a cage of its own. The price tag around its neck read £50,000. The tourist gasped to the shopkeeper, "That one costs more than all the others put together! What on earth does it do?" The shopkeeper replied, "Well, I haven't actually seen it do anything, but it says it's a project manager"

Hopefully, it make sense to you as it did for me =P

Ego Can Wait

Seeing that message, my ego didn't stop me.
And I had to wait for a good 5-10 minutes before I get started on my work...
That was enough time to munch on my breakfast - Big Pao and Tea
