Random Notes 11

Posted by : foongpc | Thursday, May 27, 2010 | Published in


1. Now that I have finished my Bali posts, I would like to resume my Lake Kenyir posts which I stopped halfway a few months back. However, for today, I would like to take a break from my travel posts to give you Random Notes 11.

2. The other day I posted this sentence on my Facebook. I wrote :

I AM FEELING H........... NOW AND I AM CRAVING FOR S.......... !!!

Someone responded by commenting "So just go and M......."

What do you think I am feeling and craving for? And if you know what M stands for, then you are really having naughty thoughts! Haha! : )

3. I love to tweet! Now with my newly bought iPhone, I can tweet from anywhere at any time of the day or night! And checking my emails have never been easier! Thank God for iPhone!

4. The days of sms are over, at least for me. Previously I was known as the Sms King in my family as I loved to send text messages to my friends. My phone bill used to be quite high because of this!

Nowadays I hardly use sms to communicate with close friends. What I use instead is Twitter. By using the Direct Message feature in Twitter, I can send private messages to my friends who are also on Twitter.

Why pay for sending text messages when you can do it for free via Twitter? So want to send me text messages? Come follow me on Twitter! : )

5. According to a 2010 Reader's Digest Poll, Nicol David is the Malaysian that Malaysians trust most! Surprisingly (or should it be not surprisingly?) feng shui master Lillian Too made it into the Top 50 Most Trusted Malaysians this year!

For the complete list, read HERE.

Judging from the list, Malaysians seem to trust actors and singers a lot! And is it any wonder that not a single politician is on that list? Haha!!

6. Now do you know what is the 10 Most Trusted Professions in Malaysia? They (in ranking order) are :
  • Pilot
  • Teacher
  • Doctor
  • Paramedic
  • Firefighter
  • Surgeon
  • Scientist
  • Dentist
  • Pharmacist
  • Nurse
Are you in one of the above professions? Looks like Malaysians trust mostly science and medicine oriented professions.

Surprisingly, CEOs ranked no.27, way below musicians (no.21) and tour guides (no.23) !

7. I am sure most of you know who Dr Pornthip is don't you? Yes, she's the famous forensic pathologist from Thailand. Well, according to Reader's Digest Poll, Dr Pornthip is Thailand's most trusted person! No wonder she is much sought after - even in Malaysia!

8. Recently, I checked my resting heart rate and it was at 68 bpm. I think I am not as fit as before! I am aiming to bring my resting heart rate to 60 bpm in 3 months time. I hope I can achieve this!

Do you know what is your resting heart rate? To know the proper way of measuring your resting heart rate, read HERE.

    Interesting list...how come 'lawyer' is not there? I'm kidding, kidding! I heard that twitter is gaining popularity and could replace sms but I find texting faster and better than twittering.

  6. HappySurfer said...

    I'm not surprised pilots top the list, otherwise tourism will not be so high. Maybe it's a no-choice situation. Still, it means we trust the pilots enough to put our life in their hands. No?

    Only makes sense that people who have anything to do with our physical bodies/health top the list. Dr Porntip, on the other hand, is the only one the dead trusts. :p

    Good morning, Foong.

  11. khengsiong said...

    Oh... you have jumped on the iPhone bandwagon. I expect a post on this topic from you.

    Regarding the most trusted person list, Jackie Chan was at the bottom in Hong Kong. Surprising, huh? (But I know why Hongkies distrust the movie star.)

    May 27, 2010 at 10:50 AM

  15. mNhL said...

    i prefer to call directly than sms le. Because call direct can get direct answer. haha...sms and twitter still have to wait for the otherside to response.

    Malaysian are taking their life seriously for trusting the science and medical professions. hehe...

    May 27, 2010 at 11:02 AM
  16. Reanaclaire said...

    May 27, 2010 at 11:21 PM
  30. foongpc said...

    bananaz, but HOT, SHOWER and MAKAN do not make sense together! Haha!

    May 27, 2010 at 11:23 PM
  31. foongpc said...

    rosebelle, are you a lawyer? LOL! Well, texting or sms is definitely faster but you have to pay for them. Whereas, if you use iPhone or any smartphone, and make use of push notification, I think Twitter can serve as a free substitute for sms : )

    May 27, 2010 at 11:39 PM
  32. foongpc said...

    ggg, thanks a lot for spamming!

  35. foongpc said...

    bluedreamer27, haha can't tell the truth here! LOL!

    Sending you the iPhone? Dream on! Haha!

    Why are you confused with Twitter? Still a noob? Don't worry - you'll soon get the hang of it! Make sure you tweet more cos I'm following you now : )

    I am not rally a big fan of Readers Digest but I do subscribe to it. So you are a teacher? Haha, so I guess I can trust you? : )

    I bet government officials and politicians are right at the bottom of the list, haha!

    Don't know your resting heart rate? Quick! Go measure and let me know : )

    May 27, 2010 at 11:48 PM
  36. foongpc said...

    khengsiong, why are you expecting a post on my iPhone? Hmmm, I may or may not blog about it : )

    Jackie Chan? Yeah, I don't trust him too. haha!

    May 27, 2010 at 11:49 PM
  37. foongpc said...

    mNhL, I prefer sms to calling haha! Although if there are too many things to say, I would opt for calling instead of sms : )

    May 27, 2010 at 11:51 PM
  38. foongpc said...

    reanaclaire, haha! Too bad : )

    May 28, 2010 at 12:03 AM
  40. foongpc said...

    iamthewitch, haha! That;s a good answer! But is that what I really thinking? LOL!

  42. foongpc said...

    mei teng, I kinda agree with you. LOL!

    May 28, 2010 at 12:06 AM
  43. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, haha! Actually, it's I am feeling HORNY and I am craving for SEX!!! And someone commented "So just go and MASTURBATE" Hahaha!!

    Now I didn't say that's what I really had in mind when I made that statement!

    Cos I am feeling HUNGRY and I am craving for SUSHI works just as well! Then someone commented "So just go and MAKAN" LOL!!

    merryn, haha! I know you have naughty thoughts!!!

    No iPhone? Go get one!!! Of course I will reply if you sms me : )

    I don't trust all teachers OK? LOL!

    I think Malaysians don't really trust therapists that's why you don't see many Malaysians visit therapists.

    Why are pretty nurses not to be trusted? : )

    May 28, 2010 at 2:43 AM
  48. foongpc said...

    cheahs@n, sashimi? Nice!! Haha!

    May 28, 2010 at 2:46 AM
  50. foongpc said...

    che-cheh, H for hungry, S for sushi or sashimi or satay, M for makan!

    That is, if H is for hungry! Haha! You may want to substitute H with hot, or horny! LOL!

    The digi plan I chose is RM88 per month with unlimited internet.

    Your resting heart rate between 60 and 65 is quite good already! But can be improved further : )

  54. Tekkaus said...

    I still love to sms. Well...I used prepaid so no problem. I love to sms especially during the festive seasons to send my warmest greetings. :)

    May 28, 2010 at 3:46 PM
  55. Tekkaus said...

    Yeah! Nicol is the most iconic facein Malaysia right now. :) She beats Najib and Chong Wei!

    May 28, 2010 at 3:47 PM
  56. Tekkaus said...

    Wow...they still believe teacher after so many incidents lately. Shocking! :)

    May 28, 2010 at 3:47 PM
  57. Tekkaus said...

    Nope I don't think my job is anywhere in the top 30 bro. :p

    May 28, 2010 at 3:48 PM
  58. Tekkaus said...

    Yeah! What?Dr. Pornthip is the most trusted person in Thailand? I thought they worship their king?

    May 28, 2010 at 3:49 PM
  59. Tekkaus said...

    My nephew set Skype up on his computer for a job interview. The job was several states away and an in person interview would have meant a drive of hundreds of miles or a flight on a plane. The employer suggested the video interview.

    May 28, 2010 at 5:27 PM
  61. [SK] said...

    haha, yeah!! thanks for being so considerate to let us have a break in between your propelling travel posts.. :p

    May 28, 2010 at 11:10 PM
  62. [SK] said...

    i actually thot you've already put the Lake Kenyir posts to an end already.. are there still so much to blog about?? it was like a year ago right??

    May 28, 2010 at 11:10 PM
  63. [SK] said...

    haha, i saw your status update in FB the other day.. that's a cool one, just leave us free to imagine what you're thinking about~~ :D

    May 28, 2010 at 11:11 PM
  64. [SK] said...

    so, it could be:
    So just go and M********E

    So just go and M***N


    May 28, 2010 at 11:14 PM
  65. [SK] said...

    yeah, i can see that you're addicted to Twitter, and to the extent of obssessed already.. why???

    May 28, 2010 at 11:15 PM
  66. [SK] said...

    because i can see you updating your status every few minutes through Twitter in FB!!! a whole long list of your updates when i signed in.. :D

    May 28, 2010 at 11:15 PM
  67. [SK] said...

    haha, but still not everyone is always online Twitter right?? so i guess SMS is still more efficient, or else just give a ring would be the best way of communication..

    May 28, 2010 at 11:17 PM
  68. [SK] said...

    because sometimes the same sentence, different people might comprehend it differently.. and that's where the inconvenience of text communication lies..

    May 28, 2010 at 11:18 PM
  69. [SK] said...

    oooh, i am not in the list of the 10 Most Trusted Professions in Malaysia.. which rank does an IT Consultant go??

    May 28, 2010 at 11:18 PM
  70. [SK] said...

    surprise Nicol David goes to the top of the list!! haha, and Lilian Too made it to Top 50, haha.. how about Joey Yap?? who ranks higher??

    May 28, 2010 at 11:19 PM
  71. [SK] said...

    come on, and we all clearly know why there isn't a single politician in the list right?? don't have to explain, it's understood..

    May 28, 2010 at 11:20 PM
  72. [SK] said...

    oh, the best resting heart rate is 60bpm?? i always thot the normal heart rate is 72bpm.. :p so the lower the better?? but what is the lower threshold?? i only know the max is (220 - age)..

    May 28, 2010 at 11:22 PM
  73. foongpc said...

    tekkaus, haha no I have not finished yet with my Kenyir trip.

    I am not trying to show off my iPhone, but then again, they have always said, if you have it, flaunt it! Haha!!

    So your job is not in the Top 10? No comment on mine ; )

    Your resting heart rate is 50? It does not mean you are healthy, but you are very fit indeed provided you have no underlying health problems! : )

    May 28, 2010 at 11:25 PM
  74. foongpc said...

    hanging lamps, good to hear that! An interview done online saves time.

    May 29, 2010 at 12:07 AM
  75. foongpc said...

    SK, the kenyir trip was about 6 months ago and yes, still have not finished blogging about it! Haha!

    So you managed to fit in some pretty good answers in the blanks! LOL!

    Haha! Yes, I'm addicted to Twitter and sorry about my frequent updates on FB via Twitter! : )

    Yes, those not on Twitter will have to sms instead : )

    Joey Yap is not in the Top 50 List so I guess people trust Lillian Too more. Haha!

    No, 60 bpm is not the best resting heart rate. I just want to achieve 60 since it's better than the current 68. The fitter you are, the lower your resting heart rate. Most athletes have lower than 60.

    That’s lovely to see teacher in the second position. But I am still confused with the big ‘M’. Looking forward to your next random notes. Bye.

    i think i'm the only one who's not a facebook or twitter member. they can get pretty addictive and time consuming.

    Happy tweeting!

    life ramblings, yes you are right! Twitter is very addictive, but I don't really find it time consuming - most probably because I love to tweet! LOL!
