1. I love my Random Notes posts! Do you like my Random Notes too? Sure hope you do. Haha! Anyway, today is the 13th in the series. Hey it's Friday! So shall I call it Friday the 13th? LOL!

2. Last night, I had the WORST asam laksa noodles for dinner in my entire life! Guess where did I eat? OK, let me tell you. It's at OldTown White Coffee. I won't mention which outlet but it was really, really horrible! I could only find one thin slice of shredded fish in it! What kind of asam laksa is that?

3. Do you want to know my latest hobby? OK, it's not really my latest cos I have been at it for years! Haha! I am talking about afternoon naps! I love taking short power naps and I call it Panda Power Nap or PPN for short. Why panda? Go figure! Do you take PPN? : )

4. OK, some people will say taking naps are only for lazy people. If that is so, then Bill Clinton, Leonardo da Vinci and Thomas Edison are lazy people! I am so privileged to be in this list of famous people. Hmm, wonder if Obama is in this list as well?

5.You want to know the benefits of taking power naps? And the difference between nano-nap, micro-nap, mini-nap and power-nap? Read HERE

6. Of course, not everyone can afford to take power naps, especially if you work in the office. Really, all offices should have a room just for people to take 20 minutes power naps! Look, it can increase productivity as you will feel more alert after a nap and can focus better. Of course, employers are strictly against this since they know most of their employees are either busy blogging, tweeting, msn-ing, or facebooking instead of working! Haha!

7. Want to know 5 ways to change your IP address? Watch this video.



8. Recently, I had so much fun irritating people with my Vuvuzela! If you don't know what a Vuvuzela is, obviously you have not been following the FIFA World Cup that is going on now. Here's a picture of a man blowing the Vuvuzela.



Oh no! I did not buy a real Vuvuzela! Just downloaded the app on my iPhone and started blowing it to annoy people especially those who hated the noise made by this trumpet-lookalike instrument. Haha!

9. I was laughing and laughing when I saw these photos of Lady Gaga on those super duper high platform shoes and she stumbled and fell on her face at of all places, the airport! So bloody funny!



Well, that's over-the-top Lady Gaga for you!

Hope you had enjoyed reading my Random Notes today! Have a great weekend! : )

    Sometimes I take short naps during lunch hour. Short naps are good but after waking up...it's hard to get back to work..haha.

    That lady is just asking for trouble wearing those atrocious shoes. The extent that some people go to...just to be different..sigh.

    June 25, 2010 at 8:25 AM
  20. lina said...

    I can never really take short naps. If I nap in the afternoon, it'll turn out to be a 2-3 hours nap session! :D

    yikes... Changing Ip is not really advisable especially if you will be using Proxy server.. it will be quite conflicting with the system

  33. Change Your IP

    I think the best way to change your IP is through a proxy. Everything you do on the internet is sent through the company's server so you want to be sure that you can find a trustworthy company behind the proxy. You want to be sure that you can rely on the company not to steal or read your personal information.

  46. Ishmael Fischer Ahab said...

    Aha...power naps. If I could just do that in the office than maybe I am not that sick today.

    Oh, I remember, I never had a habit of taking naps. ^_^

    I know that trumpet like instrument. Well I guess if that was played for so many then it is indeed annoying.

  64. Shingo T said...

    Heard so much about OldTown but I never been there before. Haha, so next time I should packet outside food to eat at the cafe? =p

  65. Vernon said...

    Frankly speaking, I love those Random Notes more than any other posts in your blog. They are packed with much different news that one become aware of most of the things that happen around you. Bye.

    June 28, 2010 at 9:03 PM
  66. HappySurfer said...

    Unfortunately, the best food is not found in our cafe chains. I think sometimes, the food in shopping mall foodcourts serve better-tasting food, eg, I once tasted a great bowl of curry laksa at two Jaya Jusco foodcourts. Come to think of it, roadside stalls can sometimes come up with the best food such as those in Tengkat Tongshin or even in Chinatown, those backlane stalls. I remember the assam laksa there is to die for. Have you tried it?

    July 4, 2010 at 4:32 PM
  67. HappySurfer said...

    Am I glad I'm nowhere near you when you decide to blare your vuvuzela. That racket is deafening and I think prolonged exposure to that noise can make one deaf. So, be careful yourself, eh?

    July 4, 2010 at 4:36 PM
  68. HappySurfer said...

    Hey, not nice to laugh at people's misery, wor.. In a way, I feel for celebs because in the eyes of "lesser mortals", they are supposed to be perfect. Even when they need help, people don't dare go near, just like in Lady G's case. So sad, and to top it off, people scoff and laugh at them. tsk tsk!

    July 4, 2010 at 5:11 PM
  69. HappySurfer said...

    Random Notes may be nice and easy to read and easier still for the writer but it doesn't do much for SEO in terms of keywords in the title, IMO. Bottomline, they don't do much for organic traffic. My two cents, of course, Foong.

    I love to have nap. My hubby always took his power nap during lunch time. He ate very fast, so got plenty of time to nap. hehe

    Like, you could customize the way the note would look and then they would show up on your profile. Does anyone know what that site is called?

    July 12, 2010 at 5:01 PM
  72. handmade holiday gift ideas said...

    I play guitar, and I've only recently started so preferably music without all the sharp/flat symbols, the extra lines everywhere etc, but I can work around them if that's all there is.

    Good info on changing your IP address. Personally, I use Hide My Ass which works well for me.
