Pure Dose of Adrenalin Rush

Having acquainted with the intensity of Honda's B16 on the road thru my recently acquired ride has got me hooked on this daily need-for-speed ritual. It may not be the fastest kid on the block, but jus a measly but highly potent 1.6 litre twin cam screamer a.k.a Type R wannabe - I've always wanted an EK9, but my current ride would do juz fine..

Need-for-speed routine step-by-step:
1. Hit the open roads
2. Engage 1st gear & stomp on the accelerator & watch the revs climb eagerly towards heaven
3. Full throttle all d way; the magic mark is 6000rpm onwards whr the DOCH VTEC cams goes from wild to wow & ram u up the road like hornet gone beserk!
4. Gun it to a whopping 9000rpm to experience full effect before upshift
5. Repeat the crazy process again, stretch each gear to max - 2nd takes u to nearly 100km/h in under 8 secs flat, 3rd shud bring u close to 160 clicks

Addictive? Sure is. Thrilling - definitely... undeterred by the $0.30 petrol increase. Maybe it's the aural experience from that distinctive VTEC changeover exhaust note, so loud and mellow, both beautiful & forceful. I need my daily dose of VTEC...

X Factor - con't

Merger opens up a new chapter... what does it hold for the future? Waiting in anticipation for changes bound to take place real soon.. uncertainty definitely stirs up some feeling of insecurity; Job security? Nah, it doesn't bother me, not at this point. But oh boy, i'm getting excited... at the prospect of seeing some answers to some pre-historic questions about:

1. IPOs - will it materialize? It;s sounding like an old record player, repeating act at quarterly communications since.... i can't remember when..
2. Bonuses ... w/o bond? -> now that's sounding like a real deal
3. Regulated OTs? - > 60 - 70 hr working week juz sounds too pathetic; hey get a LIFE!
4. Change in manangement/direction? -> changes are most welcome! Can it possibly get any worse?

Well, fingers crossed..wait & see...

It's a Beautiful Day ~ Part II
2006 is definitely a fine year to get settled down... another our ex-colleague tying the knot. Surely a beautiful way to start the weekend, & a good excuse to 'ponteng kerja' for some of us..... to be at the wedding ceremony...

'Professionals' at work

Distractions US!

Agogo with the 'look'

The next in line....

More to come, slowly but surely... in the meantime i'll be playing catch-up

It's a Beautiful Day

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no regard of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trust, always hopes, always preserves.
Love is forever patient.
Love never fails
