What a ‘Wonderful’ Situation

One track (Larl Larl Buleeya) from the movie called ‘It’s a Wonderful After Life movie’.

Just wanna share with u guys, especially for those are in Tokyo areas and planning to pick up your family or friends at the airport. Firstly, make sure your get the correct information about the airport (either he/she will arrives at Narita Airport or Haneda Airport), if in Narita (which terminal he/she will arrives at), and the expected time arrival.  Actually my friend (let me call him as G) had asked me to follow him to the narita airport for pick up his friend which will arrives at Narita Airport around 3pm, on saturday (last week) from Chicago. I’m agreed and both of us going to the airport at 12 noon. In the car, I’m asking my friend which flight and terminal he will be at. With confident, he told me that his friend (D for short) will arrives at Terminal 2(without mentioning what flight it was). Since the clock is still 2.15pm, we stopping at the Shisui Rest area (in Chiba) and buy Starbucks coffee (I chose Matcha Tea Latte) and then take a look at the information screen for arrival and departure flight at narita airport. While G looking at the information screen, I’m going to the toilet. After that, I’m asking him for the latest information about D’s flight. G keeps telling me that D will arrives at Terminal 2, so, we’re heading to the Terminal 2, Narita airport.

We have to make sure the exact terminal that D will arrives soon, because, even though terminal 1 and terminal 2 are close to each other, if you are driving a car , and to go from terminal 2 to terminal 1 or  from terminal 1 to terminal 2, then you have to go thru the expressway (and for sure you have to pay for JPY350, about 9km for one way) and exit from the expressway to national way, turn back to expressway (another JPY350 and another 9km)…that what happened to us…D arrived at Terminal 1 about 2pm.

I have to blame myself for not re-checking the information at the information screen after G…and of course, it my fault as well..and because of that, D (this is his first time coming to Japan, looks so worried after he has to wait for us almost 2 and half hours (his flight arrived earlier, one hour before 3pm)…very sorry D, and we do…and I feel very sorry for G (when I see his face, he looks so sad and terrible and keep saying sorry to D).

Watchaaa….

Wasurenai yo!

Singer: Thelma Aoyama

Title: Wasurenaiyo

I keep listening to this song recently. Enjoy!

Lyric:

Can I still believe in you?
fuan dakedo shinjiteitai no mmm
kitto kore ga ai nan datte
kienai mono nan datte
hajimete oshiete kureta hito dakara

I’m not saying it’s a promise
yakusoku de wa nai
datte kotoba wa aimai deshou
motto tanjun na koto nanda
aisarete ureshikute
tada aitai kara

I’ll be waiting
wasurenai yo wasurenai yo
dakara kyou mo
ano hi no you ni
matteru yo matteru yo
samishii kedo daijoubu
okaeritte tsuntsunde kure
taattakai mune no kodou ga
kikoesoude
missing you

nanimo kawaranai nichijou kara anata dake ga
inakunatta totan ni
mawari no subete story ushinatte
me ni utsuru no wa mou shiranai machi mitai

I’m not saying it’s a promise
yakusoku de wa nai datte
kanawanai to kizutsuku deshou? kitto
honnoutte yatsu na no doushiyou mo naku ki ni natte
tada aitai kara

I’ll be waiting
doushitemo doushitemo oboeteitai
koto dakara itsumademo itsumademo
kawaranaitte iwasete yo
tadaimatte dakishimete kureta kokochiyosa ga
nokotteite
missing you

(I’m not saying it’s a promise) no it’s not
(demo shinjisasete) I believe, I believe, I believe
(yakusoku nanka janai) Even though it’s not a promise
tada aita kara

I’ll be waiting
wasurenai yo wasurenai yo
dakara kyou mo
ano hi no you ni
matteru yo matteru yo
samishii kedo daijoubu
okaeritte tsutsunde kure
taattakai mune no kodou ga
kikoesoude
missing you

doushitemo doushitemo oboetetai
koto dakara itsumademo itsumademo
kawaranaitte iwasete yo
tadaimatte dakishimete kureta kokochiyosa ga
nokotteite
missing you

—————————————–

<Translation>

Can I still believe in you?
Even though it’s difficult I’d want to believe, mmm
I’m sure this is love
It is something lasting
As you were the first person who taught me

I’m not saying it’s a promise
It’s not a promise
Because words are just vague right?
It’s more simple
To be loved
I’m just delighted

I’ll be waiting,
I won’t forget, I won’t forget
That’s why today as normal
I will be waiting just like that day
Even though I feel lonely I’m fine
How you said “welcome back”
And embraced me
It’s as if I hear
The beat of your warm chest
Missing you

Nothing changed everything were still normal
Only you were gone
The rest surrounding us, story were gone
The city that’s in my eyes is foreign

I’m not saying it’s a promise
It’s not a promise
As it won’t change and I will just be hurt right? I’m sure
I have no special instincts nor anxious feelings
I just want to see you

I’ll be waiting
Whatever happens, whatever happens it’s something I always want to remember
that’s why It’s something I’ll always keep saying
The comfort I felt when you sayd “welcome back” and when you embraced me still remains
missing you

(I’m not saying it’s a promise) no it’s not
(but I still believe) I believe, I believe, I believe
(it’s not something like a promise) Even though it’s not a promise
But I just want to see you

I’ll be waiting,
I won’t forget, I won’t forget
That’s why today as normal
I will be waiting just like that day
Even though I feel lonely I’m fine
How you said “welcome back”
And embraced me
It’s as if I hear
The beat of your warm chest
Missing you

Whatever happens, whatever happens it’s something I’ll always want to remember
That’s why I’ll always keep saying
The comfort I felt when you said “welcome back” and embraced me
Still remains
Missing you

Tell me why…

Tell me why…

  • …I keep pending my “to do job”?
  • …I  always do the “not important thing”?
  • …I can’t say  “I can’t help you” to do the task?
  • …I’m so confident that I can do and finish my work on time?
  • …I’m so lazy recently?
  • …I can’t  tell myself why?

Jokes about computer related…

I got this jokes from one of Malaysian website. Just wanna to share with u guys and enjoy yourself.:)

—————————————————————————–

From : Mr. Suresh Singh of Tamil Nadu, India
To: Mr. Bill Gates of Microsoft
Subject: Problems with my new computer

Dear Mr. Bill Gates,

We have bought a computer for our home and we have found some problems, which I want to bring to your notice.

  1. There is a button ’start’ but there is no ’stop’ button. We request you to check this.
  2. We find there is ‘Run’ in the menu. One of my friends clicked ‘run’ he ran up to Amritsar ! So, we request you to change that to ’sit’, so that we can click that by sitting.
  3. One doubt is whether any ‘re-scooter’ is available in system? I find only ‘re-cycle’, but I own a scooter at my home.
  4. There is ‘Find’ button but it is not working properly. My wife lost the door key and we tried a lot trace the key with this ‘ find’ button, but was unable to trace. Please rectify this problem.
  5. My child learnt ‘Microsoft word’ now he wants to learn ‘Microsoft sentence’, so when you will provide that?
  6. I bought computer, CPU, mouse and keyboard, but there is only one icon which shows ‘MY Computer’ when you will provide the remaining items?
  7. It is surprising that windows says ‘MY Pictures’ but there is not even a single photo of mine. So when will you keep my photo in that.
  8. There is ‘MICROSOFT OFFICE’ what about ‘MICROSOFT HOME’ since I use the PC at home only.
  9. You provided ‘My Recent Documents’. When you will provide ‘My Past Documents’?
  10. You provide ‘My Network Places’. For God sake please do not provide ‘My Secret Places’. I do not want to let my wife know where I go after my office hours.
  11. Why is it that your name is Gates but u are selling WINDOWS

Bayangkan…

Sambil menyelami beberapa clips in youtube, terfikir bagaimana perasaan orang malaysia apabila secara tiba-tibanya aku menyanyi dengan nyaringnya, sambil menari…(rasa macam buat persembahan muzikal bah!). Mesti ada yang suka, ada yang akan kata, mengada-ngada budak ni, atau ada juga yang akan join sama. Apa-apa pun enjoy beberapa clips dari youtube yang aku nak share kan bersama-sama.

  • Break out in song at Lisbon Airport, Portugal – Aku terpikir kalau di KLIA boleh buat benda yang sama terutama sekali apabila orang tengah take so granted nak balik kampung berhari raya,  mesti terhibur juga…tapi rasanya, mau juga kena sumpah seranah sebab tak menghormati bulan puasa…ahakkss….


  • Stansted Airport, London Hmm, maybe we can perform at Hentian Pudu Raya, or Hentian Duta, or KL Sentral. Takpun, dekat Hentian Bas Ekspres Di Batu 4.5 di Kuching…Kalau dapat perform di Kuching Airport, ini pun sudah cukup bagus.
  • At Grocery Store – Apa yang akan berlaku sekiranya budak-budak ni perform kat Pasar Minggu Satok?
  • At Baldwin Hills Mall, LA – Kalau buat kat Kubah Ria atau di Permata Car Park, Kuching time orang tengah makan, ditambah lagi suara yang menyanyi tu sedap, mahu bertambah-tambah orang ramai nak makan di situ. Sebaliknya, kalau suara yang menyanyi secara live dah macam suara katak memanggil hujan, baik tak payah perform jer. Kalau nak gah, buat ler kat KLCC Food Court tu.
  • Trump Tower – Akupun suka lunch….tapi onigiri, salad dan jus oren jer….syukurlah kan…eh, terfikir pulak, apa kata kalau kita buat musical kat Warong 2000 (Samarahan), atau di Food court (sebelah Water Tower, Unimas).
  • Time Warner Center – Jom kita perform sama ada kat Boulevard atau di The Spring…Mesti penuh dengan ‘ke-glamer-an’ ni.

Another ‘sad-surprise’ day

You know what happened to me today? (i) stopped by the policeman(one guy not wearing an uniform and the other one was) and (ii) i met my x-supervisor (the one that supervised me for my masters program a few years ago.

 

(i) for the first case: i just arrived at JR Shinjuku Station, and heading to east exit, suddenly I’d been stopped by the policemen…I’m a bit confused and surprised (and think about what was my fault?) when one guy touch my shoulder and asking me to follow him at a side. Then he asking me if I come ‘here’ (in Shinjuku i guess) alone or with friends and i told him i came there just to go for shopping. The other guy( not wearing an uniform, and he shows me his police badge, (terasa aku ni macam berlakon dalam drama series called ‘NYPD’  or ‘Law and Order’)) and asks me about my ID…and of course, I just follow and answer what he wants to know more about me…(ahaksss…at that time I feel like I’ve been interviewed by the journalist for television news). A few minutes later, they allow me to go wherever I wanna go (of course I went to the toilet nearby). Just for on record, almost three years in Tokyo, this was a third time the policemen arrested stopped me (1st time at JR Shinagawa Station, 2nd & 3rd(yesterday) time were in JR Shinjuku Station, and of course I’m happy to share my story if you really wanna know more about them).

 

 

(ii) the second case: I’m on my way to one of the Starbucks nearby JR Shinjuku Station. Right before the entrance, I saw one guy looks familiar to me and he is  having a coffee at the starbucks too…OMG!!!! That was my x-supervisor in Aizu Daigaku from 2002-2005. He looks at me and smiling at me…for sure I can’t hide myself then…and go toward him, and have a little chat. Before I go, he asks me to send him an email just to let him know about me and hopefully to meet me again in Tokyo if he comes here or if I wanna go to visit him in Aizu. By the way, it was great to see you again in Tokyo (and it was in Starbucks…ahahaha).

I ‘Love’ Surprise…

OMG! What I wanna do now? I’m (getting) blank, blur and have no idea what to say right after I read a message from the supervisor….“I would like to have a seminar with all of you. You are required to present your progress…..”. Hmmm…I’m speechless…(actually he told us before, there will be no progress presentation for PhD students….(apa lagi, melompat seronok giler baban ler kita org time tu…but now….). Then, I’m thinking, should I present my current work on conference paper? or just say “Prof, I have a progress, but I have no time to do a slides for you”… or maybe, “I have nothing to present now”, can we reschedule the time, pleaseeeeee….”, etc.. Anyway, I “love” surprise…and I ‘love’ to see other faces when they’re surprise….really cool and so funny.

 

 

The clip at Wellington Train Station(below) was not a surprise for me anyway, but worth to watch it for fun…
