Blogging is becoming so yesterday! Nowaday, we have twitter, facebook, flickr, and God knows what other social networking stuff around. As business grow big, so is the problem. Every year, I have new set of business problem or challenges. Last year, I have problem with payment processing, this year, I encounter something similar again. Anyway, all this is about to end, as I decided to move all business out of this miserable country.
No, that’s not my dog. It’s just one of the many dogs I saw in Japan. Compare to Mr Don, this one look more sharp and smart. Mr Don, if you really observe … look more like a dungu (Malay word for stupid or feeble-minded). After going to Japan, I begin to realise what’s actually a civilized society. People queue-up for everything, don’t simply throw rubbish everywhere and people don’t even steal or take stuff that don’t belong to them. Unlike China, people spit everywhere and there’s no such thing as queuing-up. There’s once occasion when I was trying to enter the theater, suddenly the people just stomp into the building, and in the process, I was squeeze like a hamburger. Maybe these people are farmers and perhaps no so civilized. Anyway, you gotta play the game, civilization to really get it. You start from farming, and you move on to industry, and the later move on to high tech stuff like space or nuclear (and you conquer your neighbor in the process).
There’s one thing that I really like about this Japan trip, it’s not the people or the food or the shopping. It’s the hot spring! Sitting in the hot spring (totally naked) outdoor during winter is really an experience. Well, there’s something that money just cannot buy…

One thing I learn from my recent travel. Never go for sight seeing when it’s a public holiday. When I was in China earlier this month, it was actually a public holiday in their country. Imagine, all this people rushing and pushing you, just to be ahead to see the sight. The photo above is taken at Huaqing hot spring. The hot spring is located at the foothill of Lishan, about 35 kilometers east of the city Xi'an. Huaqing hot spring is famed for both its dainty spring scenery and the romantic love story of Emperor Xuanzong (685-762) and his concubine Yang Guifei. Above everyone cramp into the room just too see some old and dry hot spring.
When the tourist attraction is full with people, it’s not easy and almost impossible to take a nice photo. Above photo, you can see a statue of Yang Gufei (which is not accurate). Yang Gufei is actually slightly overweight, a much sought-after quality at the time. Other than the emperor hot spring, the hot spring is also popular with patron like Chiang Kai-shek.
The Qin Terracotta Army Museum (also crowded with these terracotta army).

I think I can't get satisfaction from this Xi'an trip. There's just too many places that the tour didn't cover. Imagine coming over to this pagoda, Big Wild Goose Pagoda is also a highlight of the tour. I'm expecting museum, cycling around the city wall, cultural show and many more.
Well, I guess I can always come back to Xi'an again. But there's just too many places to go other than Xi'an.

When I was in Bangkok few days ago, I came across this thing called “Elle Peep Room”. Guess what?
I peep through and I saw this! The model even do a few sexy pose for me. I was hoping the model would change her clothes but that didn’t happen. By the way, I’m not sure if the model is a she or he/she (you know what I mean?).
