Men-women Relationship Talk #3

In this short and concise post, there will be guidance and tips on how to show confidence even when you are a timid little boy

Like I said previously, a man that screams confidence during their presence attracts whoever is around. Maybe it is your coursemates, colleague, boss, ex-girlfriends, a dog from Mars, a triceratops or whoever you're trying to impress. Like it or not, confidence is the key in success in most area.
Especially when it comes to girls. 

--------------------------------------Confidence Is Like Money---------------------------------------- 


1) Head held high, chin up, stand straight, drop and relax your shoulders, stuck in your abdomen, put your body weight on your forefoot when you stand like clicking a remote control on the floor with your little toe. (A grin on your face will be a bonus if you execute it perfectly, if not, you'll look like you're constipating, execute it with you own risk)

These basic steps should be your first priority when you want to learn to look confident. It might be tough at first since you might not use to it, but fear not, keep remind yourself to do it, practice makes perfect. Soon enough, you'll become so use to it when it become part of you... The NEW YOU!

2) Stay cool, breathe normally (not too fast or slow), mentally says "calm down, it's just a chat", don't move too much or having huge gestures as it will show your anxiety. 

These little gestures are able to portray confident in you, as natural is just a step away from confidence.

3) Even walking is an art, try walking swiftly, but not too fast like you're running away from a Godzilla, or walking too slow when you're competing with snails for the slowest beings competition. 

It sounds like a lot of hard work, I know. Though, it is not easy, but the importance of it makes it such an excellent art to master.

4) Finally...


Nothing can be compared to a smile that comes from your heart! 
Again, doing it moderately, not like a hooligans-who-had-too-much-beer-and-talking-nonsense-type of smile.

Try smiling like you're grinning, and showing only 6 teeth which I called it the 6-teeth-smile. So, try mentally says "This person is fun, I'm going to have a great time with her/him" and smile from the inside.

-----------------------------------And Money Buy You Things--------------------------------------

From personal experience, even when you're not showing confidence from the inside, with the above gestures, it should be enough to let you prepare yourself into a situation before you really showing confidence from the inside. IMO.

Suck it up if you failed, flaunt it when you got the deal. 

(It's controversial, but it's deadly) 

Next post, I will discuss on some issues regarding body language. So, stay tuned.

Men-women Relationship Talk #2

Second phase...

Being confident, but thy shall not be over self-assured...

Few words... but packed with essence of the spell.


I have this friend, who thinks he is hell of a great, showing off his charming personality and smile to females. Taking pictures with whole bunch of girls thinking that "Hey! I'm a playboy already!".

In truth, he is over self-assured.
Amazingly, until now that he has gone abroad, he still has no idea that among the girls that he "allegedly" go out on a date with, started talking about him behind his back.

Why I know?

Because some of the girls he dated/"dated" are actually my friends, they came back telling me how pathetic this friend of mine is.
(Please, let's remain silence for 2 minutes to remember my friend's inability to court a girl till now)
*sarcastic smile*

This is how the conversation goes:
(Fake names are used)

Lady Guava: Do you know? Your friend Jamiz Oliver says the weirdest thing ever? He started to call me baby, puppy and paprika all of a sudden when go out on a date? I HATED IT SO MUCH! 
Why he keeps on doing it? Then when we go out on a date, he brought me to Mc Donald's! 
DUDE! Why would any guy bring a woman to MC DONALD'S to impress her?

Me: Wow, isn't he "nice"? You're a lucky girl ;)

Lady Guava: Lucky? He is full of himself showing poses and talks like he is The belle of the ball, calling me honey and saying how much he misses me *vomits* even though we just knew each other. The worst thing is. Even after we finished dating and went home. He still call me saying how fun our date is...
Can't he even understand the signals I desperately sent to him??  

@#$%^&*(^%@#$%^*@#$%^&* (Trust me, you don't want to know what she said afterwards)

That's how it is. And that is not the only friend that told me about their negative feedback regarding Jamiz.
There are more to it from where it came from.

So, what is the problem here?

I did say men should be confident when facing anyone, especially women.
This is because women are naturally attracted to men with this quality. 
Don't ask me why. It is hormone.

However, my friend Jamiz there express too much of this trait, too much for his own good until he been blinded by his self-assured trait to see what the women's signals are (I'll talk about women's body language in future entries).
He didn't sense the SOS the lady is sending, causing his blind confidence to commit seppuku to his date.

Needless to say, those girls have stop going out with him after their first date.

Morale of the story, be modest in being confident.
Composed, and you'll be rewarded.

I will be talking about how to portray confident physically in the next entry.

Till then,

PS: Due to a certain request from a female friend of mine, I have to write about how women should approach man in my future entry.

Seriously, I would consult a real expert first to write about that.   =.=

Men-women Relationship talk #1

This post will be something I don't usually write.
But after reading a few article on men-women.
I have to open the gate and let the city mouth speaks.

There was this one male colleague of mine asking me why I can mingle around with female colleagues looking this smooth considering I'm only started working here for a week. The conversation as below:

Playboy wannabe: Dude, why you always able to make girls wanna talk to you? Is there a secret spell or something?

Me: Well, you need to first throw away your desperateness like how you are right now. Female can "smell" desperate man, and it ain't welcoming for them.


being desperate isn't something to be practiced around women at any time of the year, month, day... PERIOD.

If a man wants to be successful around women, he has to learn to be confident with their own skin, just be natural.

How to do that?

I once brought a book with me in the outdoor and do "research" as an excuse to meet more women, try to get them to "assist" in my "research" by asking them intriguing questions that will sure spark interest in them.

Making sure to look good and calm along the way.

Women love to talk, seriously, let them do the talking as you ask questions
and you will be fascinated by the amount of information they would share to a total stranger.

Enjoy the process and keep your composure.
Practice a bit more with other women to get use to your new skin.

This is the first phase.
It took me a week or two to get used to it.
But once you know the spell, you wouldn't need to be the timid little man again.

However, explaining all these to that colleague isn't easy, as you can't teach an old dog new tricks.
He needs a wingman to discuss this to him, sadly, I'm not that close to him. What a shame *sarcastically*


Second phase...

Be confident, but thy shall not be over self-assured...

To be continued....

Ipoh Trip: 1st stop. Ipoh Famous Yong Tau Foo @ Pasir Pinji Big Tree Foot

All right. I have been MIA for so long saying I would stop blogging here.
I... guess I changed my mind.

So, here I am, once again.
Writing about my blas and blus and most of all...



Me and Sam thought of going for a trip during our 3 days holidays from the end of April till Labour Day.
Hardly we have been granted three VALUABLE holidays and thus, making a good use of it is our main priority.

After departing from my office at 1pm, we reached Ipoh around 3.40pm, can't blame me,
the traffic is congested along the highway -.-

Our first stop is none other than Pasir Pinji Big Tree Foot Yong Tau Foo.

This reputation of it isn't something of a hoax, the Yong Tau Foo (Yong Liew) made from the fish paste really taste fresh and every bite just brings you to another level of comfort... "food comfort". Every little Yong Liew we ate was definitely worth its money as the Yong Liew are stuffed packed, ensuring every bite is a BOMB!

I nearly forgot to mention about the soup base of the Yong Tau Foo, it is HEAVENLY!
The anchovies (ikan bilis)-based soup is very concentrated. Though a bit salty, it saltiness and the taste of the ikan bilis blend well with the fried Yong Liew.

Going at 60-70 cents per piece, this delicious masterpiece is definitely a must-go for anyone.

Here is the LOCATION of the place if you need to refer to the Google Map.

Author's note: The location is quite isolated from the town. So, make sure you look carefully in your search.


My post will be shorter compare to last time, but I'll make sure every word speaks content.

Till then,

Porto Romano day for Christmas

Well, I've came to know about this place 2 years back via some recommendation from some bloggers.
And it turns out quite good... at least that's before I've tasted the food.

I don't know about the outlet in City Square, but the one in TTDI is surely give me a bad impression on the food.

On one hand, the atmosphere is bloody nice. No doubt about it, but they just love to use immigrants ei? Though they have good command of English compare to those Old Town and others, they just doesn't bring in the "feel" that a Mediterranean restaurant should have... EUROPEANS!

Okay okay, may be I'm a little bit harsh, but that's what I would expect considering their good reviews by other bloggers.

So, here goes nothing.


Me and my love went to Porto Romano in TTDI during Christmas last year, and it was a tough ride as both of us have no idea where is the place and we ended up driving ROUND and ROUND for a few hours (divided by 60 minutes minus 39 minutes +2 minutes times 0.2 minutes)
All right, I'm joking.
But we did lost our way until we have a moment of EUREKA!

And there we are.

Nice service I would say, the waiters greet us well, seated us nicely and make us feel like home with the tiniest   "kekokness" (Damn, my ABL rocks!)

As you can see, the place has a good ambiance with perfect lighting condition, not too bright nor dark, the place gives you the comfort though the place is quite small. The place divided into both outdoor and indoor.
Sadly, we only have pictures for indoor only :\

On normal days, I bet the place would be much quiet, but maybe since that day is a Christmas so the crowd got into my nerves sometimes. They talk LOUDLY + children SCREAM = Total "calm"

Me and my girl seated for quite sometime before we get our food. We actually chose the turkey as main course (It is special for that festive season only not available on other days)


It taste horrible -.-
I'll try to simplify the description of the food.

The pizza was gooood. You can actually taste every ingredient in the pizza. The layers of taste give your palate a distinguishable feel of all the ingredients.

The infamous tiramisu that everyone claim to be the must-try dish. It was just not my cup of tea though. Same for my girl, she just doesn't like it too.

So there you have it. For my next entry... You just have to wait and find out. :)

2011 New Year Resolution

After writing the New year resolution for 2010 so that I can at least have a target for myself so that
I won't look so useless when I reflect on my life of what I did for 2010.

Pathetic? Yeah, maybe. At least I'm better than those that wasted their 2010 basically doing nothing that would help them :P

I did completed 4 out of 6 resolution for 2010. So I think I can manage the future resolutions.

Now I'm going to go straight into my 2011 New Year Resolution.

1) Earn more $$$$$. Increase my monthly income to 3k-4k. (Thanks to you, Mr. MyVi)
A bit unrealistic maybe. But it is possible. Trust me.

2) Jog/Swim/Biceps training at least once a week. (My dumbbells have been lying around for quite
some time -.-)

3) Meet up with my old pals and new buddies. (Seriously, after I moved out to OUG, I've not been meeting up with them often. Miss ya guys.

4) Have at least 7 hours of sleep everyday. (I can't seem to have 8 hours of sleep a day like how I use to be)

5) Succeed in doing all the resolutions above. (Okay, this is a cheat, but hey! If I could do the above 4, I deserved the extra "completed resolutions", right?

This year will be a tough one for the Rabbits (Zodiac). As we are "offending Tai Shui". So, Rabbits, work harder!

Till then
