Mood: Monday. Bleah.
Reading: US Conducts First Full-Scale Cyber Security Exercise
Currently listening to: Nothing

So, yeah, its another Monday at work and i've just realised that i actually have NOTHING to do! Amazing, no? :)
Anyhow, just wanted to point out that i've updated the template somewhat (including that erroneous personal details part that stated i was still 24) and added/updated a two links to the sidebar... Lisa's blog is now there and, for those of you who know him, i've updated the correct url for Melven's new blog - check 'em both out!
On another note, i had a pretty good weekend all in all... Went for that War On Terror documentary on Friday night with Boon at the KLPac but the traffic that night was utterly horrendous! What would normally take about 45 minutes travel time on a normal Friday night exploded into a plodding 2 hour traffic nightmare - so much so that Vik, JJ and Davine (who were supposed to meet us there) gave up and headed for home. The worst part by far, i suppose, had to have been the fact that my bladder was about to explode for much of the journey. I mean, can you imagine the torment of holding 'the urge' for the better part of an hour, whilst listening to some bad jokes (damn you Boon!), and slowly inching your way to a turnoff (and a secluded enough spot) at the rate of 0.5 metres a minute?
Anyhow, the documentary was good. I didn't learn anything new that i already hadn't managed to establish for myself (thank you daily security newswire services) but its a major topic for me and managed to hold my interest throughout. The more interesting event was, by far, the post movie discussion where a Malaysian human rights lawyer of some apparent notoriety was invited to initiate a discussion on Malaysian human rights issues. Interesting stuff what with, for example, the various detailed insights into the legalities and interpretations of the ISA (Internal Security Act) and interpretation of the freedom of worship section of our Malaysian constitution.
And yes, it was hosted by Amnesty International Malaysia. :)
(note: getting stopped by the Malaysian police for whatever reason when driving in a car with various Amnesty pamphlets scattered around the back seat might lead on to painful results, physical or otherwise...)
Other than that i spent the better part of the weekend celebrating Alvin's birthday at his place (we 'surprised' him with a coffee machine of some sort - i think of it as an investment) and at the Al-Rawsha arabic restaurant on Saturday night. Also managed to swing by Alexis with some of the guys that same night for some jazz and, more importantly, to meet up with my old friends Zamil, Skye, Huey and - surprise, surprise - Nigel Wong!
Played tennis/squash, followed by some ginger tea, chicken, and conversation on Sunday with Vik. Went for my brother's crab and seafood dinner
Hrmmm... what else, what else...
Oh yeah, Saturday dinners are back on again this week so keep an eye out for tomorrow's post!
