NEVER HAD A DREAM COME TRUE ~S Club 7~

Everybody's got something they had to leave behind
One regret from yesterday that just seems to grow with time
There's no use looking back or wondering
How it could be now or might have been
Oh this I know but still I can't find ways to let you know

I've never had a dream come true
Till the day that I found you
Even though I pretend that I've moved on
You'll always be my baby
I never found the words to say
You're the one I think about each day
And I know no matter where life takes me to
A part of me will always be with you

Somewhere in my memory
I've lost all sense of time
and tomorrow can never be cos yesterday is all that fills my mind
There's no use looking back or wondering
How it could be now or might have been
Oh this I know but still I can't find ways to let you go

I've never had a dream come true
Till the day that I found you
Even though I pretend that I've moved on
You'll always be my baby
I never found the words to say
You're the one I think about each day
And I know no matter where life takes me to
A part of me will always be

You'll always be the dream that fills my head
Yes you will, say you will, you know you will
Oh baby, you'll always be the one I know I'll never forget
There's no use looking back or wondering
Because love is a strange and funny thing
No matter how I try and try I just can't say goodbye
No no no no

The Stupid Test - Here is a fun and real challenge

OK. Pay close attention. Here is a very simple little test comprised of four easy questions to determine the level of your intellect. See if you have what it takes to be considered "smart."

Your replies must be spontaneous and immediate, with no deliberating or wasting of time. And no cheating!

On your mark, get set, go...

1: You are competing in a race and overtake the runner in second place. In which position are you now?
2: If you overtake the last runner, what position are you now in?

3: Take 1000. Add 40. Add another 1000. Add 30. 1000 again. Plus 20. Plus 1000. And plus 10. What is the total?

4: Marie's father has five daughters:

A. Chacha
B. Cheche
C. Chichi
D. Chocho
E. ????

Question: What is the fifth daughter's name?




Think quickly...you'll find the answer below..

















Answer 1: If you answered that you're now in first, you're wrong!
You overtook the second runner and took his place, therefore you are now in second place.

Answer 2: If you answered second to last, you are wrong once again.

Think about it... How can you overtake the person who is last? If you're behind them, they can't be last. You would have been last.
Answer 3: 5000? Wrong again! The correct answer is 4100. Try again with good calculator.
 Answer 4: Chuchu? WRONG!
It's obviously Marie! Read the question properly.

Computer Tips: FASTER RESTARTING YOUR PC

FASTER RESTARTING YOUR PC :

Perhaps you have gotten an "illegal operation" message and have been "advised" to re-start, or your resources are running low. 
That in itself is frustrating. Why take the extra time to re-load everything when you don't need to. Using the following method will only re-load windows, not all of your drivers.
Hence, it is much faster. Here's How u do it ....
  
Just go to "start">"shut down"> and select "re-start"......when you are ready to click "ok",  hold down the "shift" key at the same time as you do so.
Then release it. Windows will re-start. You'll even get a little message saying so.
Try it next time and you'll see the difference.

Computer Tips: Here's an oldie, but a goodie.

Here's an oldie, but a goodie...
  
You can turn off the animation displayed by Windows when you minimize and maximize windows. This makes navigating Windows a lot faster, especially for those that don't have super fast video cards. Ever notice how when you minimize and maximize your windows, they seem to "shrink" and "grow"? well....if you like that, fine. If you want to speed things up though, here's a neat little tip.

Simply disable that animated effect. Doing this will make windows, menus, and lists just "snap" into place. No "shrinking" and "growing" effect.
here's how to do it:

right click on an empty space on your desktop. select "properties> click on the "effects" tab. look for the little box that says "animate windows, menus and lists". uncheck it. then click "apply" and "ok".

 its been awhile since I did this, so I can't remember if you will be prompted to re-start, but I advise re-starting anyway. when you re-boot, you will notice a difference. if you don't like the change, just go back and check the option.

 i think you will like the "snappiness" effect though. try it!!! have fun.

Computer Tips: SCANNERS & CAMERA

SCANNERS & CAMERA:
 
Here we go. if you look in your MSCONFIG start-up list....you will most likely find something called "still image monitor". (STIMON.EXE).

If you have and use an imaging device (scanner, camera) on a daily basis,
you can stop reading now.
if you are like me however, and are an occasional user, this may be beneficial.

STIMON is necessary to run these imaging devices, and your scanner or camera may not work if it is disabled. my scanner wouldn't when i disabled it.

 however, i did notice that my system resources increased by 3% when it was disabled. so i got to thinking....."hmmm, if i use my scanner once every couple of weeks, do i need STIMON running in the background all the time eating up 3% of my resources?" ok....so 3% doesn't sound like much, but every little bit helps. so.... here was the dilemma...i wanted to disable STIMON and let my system use the extra resources when i wasn't using my scanner, but when i needed my scanner, i would have to enable STIMON in MSCONFIG and re-boot to use it?

 no way i was doing that!!

here's what i did.....i went to C: windows/system    and scrolled down to the "STIMON" icon and right clicked on it. i made a shortcut for it to my desktop. i renamed it "pre-scan" to remind me to click it before scanning and placed it down by my start button on my desktop( i go to programs to start my scanner), so by being there, i was sure to see it as a reminder before scanning.

if i had a short cut for my scanner on my desktop, i would have put it right next to that. then I went to MSCONFIG and unchecked STIMON.EXE then i re-started as prompted, checked my resources, and had gained 3%. now all i have to do is click on the shortcut i made for STIMON before using my scanner, and everything works fine. meanwhile, if i don't use my scanner, i have those extra resources available.

one additional note: some imaging programs, if not running in the background, will just open and run when you start them. STIMON however, will not if it is disabled. when i tried to run my scanner without STIMON running, i got the famous "this program has performed an illegal operation."....etc. message.

if i forget to click on the shortcut anytime, i get that message also, and it just serves as a reminder. no big deal. i close that message box, click on the shortcut for STIMON, and im ready to scan. you may want to try this, and perhaps use this info to experiment with other imaging programs added in MSCONFIG startup.

remember, you can always just enable something again of you don't like the way it works.

Silap Naik Keta Dah...^_^


Kat bawah nii ada satu kisah kelakor yang diciterkan oleh sorang pompuan yang hanya mengenalkan dirinya sebagai Bedah Redah! Citer dia gini...

Sebagai seorang kakitangan kerajaan... bila hari jemaat aje aku suka balik umah.. pasal masa rehat dia panjang. Tapi hari Jemaat tu hujan dengan lebatnya... So? aku tumpang office mate aku sampai depan umah. Rumah aku ni berbukit sikit... Sebelum turun.. akak tu janji nak amik aku pukul 2.30 petang...

Hujan kat luar masih lagi lebat... jam hampir ke 2.30 petang.. aku mandi dan semayang.... lepas tu bersiap siap tunggu akak tadi dating amik aku. Jam dah kul 2.35 aku dah risau.. mana akak ni.. tak sampai sampai lagi...office masuk kul 2.45 ptg.

Tunggu punyer tunggu.. hah.. yang dinanti sudah pun tiba!!!! Keter proton warna cokelat matelik pun berenti kat depan rumah aku. Hujan punyerlah lebat... so aku amik surat kabo lipat tebal tebal takut
tudung aku basah...lepas kunci pintu.. aku terus berlari turun... pasal rumah aku berbukit.. aku kene berlari hati hati..

Sampai aje kat keta... aku tak tunggu lagi.. terus bukak pintu dan duduk kat tempat sebelah pemandu.. Tapi kenapa akak tu tak jalan. Aku toleh kat sebelah... Ler... rupanya orang lain!!!! Aku tengok orang tu..
orang tu tengok aku.... Mulut orang tu siap ternganga lagi...

Ish... saper ni?! Camana aku boleh silap ni... abih tu.. kat luar ujan lebat.. takkan aku nak kuar.. aku dengan muka macam kerang busuk berkata,"Err.. bang boleh tulung hantar kat UTM tak?"

Abang tu pun... tak jawap apa2 agaknya pasal masih tergamam lagi..terus angguk.

Sepanjang perjalanan aku diam... abang tu pun diam... masing masing masih gabra lagi.. Aku lagi ler gabra. EnTah keter sapa aje aku main redah.
Aku malu.. bengang.. rasa muka aku dah di tepek-tepek ngan taik...Aku berdoa semoga aku pengsan masa tu.. tapi sayang.. aku tak pengsan pun.

Bila sampai kat destinasi... aku pun turun... lepas ucap tima kasih. Sampai kat opis aku tunggu kakak yang sepatutnya amik aku. Bila kakak tu sampai dia tanya aku,

"Pergi naik apa? Kenapa tak tunggu?"

Maka aku citalah peristiwa yang sadis tu.... Ya Allah.. kakak tu punyerlah gelak gila kat aku... Ishhh!!! Sungguh memalukan. Tapi itu cerita 3 tahun lepas... skang ni... Abang yang aku tumpang tu.. dah jadi
suami aku
He..he..he..

Kekadang bila ingat balik.. ish.. malu sungguh. Suami aku pun kata masa tu dia ingat aku nak rompak dia.... he..he.he.he. Aku pun Tanya kenapa masa tu dia berenti kat depan rumah aku... Then.. dia kata dia nak amik beg duit kat seat belakang tu pasal dia berenti. Tapi tau tau aku pulak yang
masuk.....
He..he..he.. sampai skang ni.. dia masih ejek aku lagi pasal perisitwa kureng tu...

Tapi kalau peristiwa tu tak berlaku. Maybe aku tak jumpa lagi suami aku yang sowang nih? ihiks!!


moral drp citer ni :
tumpang jer mana2 balak yg ada keta untung2 buleh buat laki....

Bila isteri dah tak cun....sedihnye...



Untuk renungan dan perhatian isteri2 dan bakal isteri...

       Pembaca Semua,


       Saya ingin berkongsi pengalaman ini dengan semua kerana saya ingin puan2 tahu apa sebenarnya tersirat didalam benak sesetengah suami dan  bagaimana dia melihat kita di kaca mata mereka.Walaupun mereka tidak pernah komplen tentang perawakan kita tetapi disudut hati mereka
mereka menilai secara diam2 dan membanding kita dengan perempuan lain.

Barangkali suami puan2 tidak begitu tapi ini boleh jadi panduan.

Saya seorang isteri baru berusia 29 tahun dan mempunyai 3 orang anak,perawakan saya biasa sahaja,tidak lah hodoh,sedikit gempal setelah melahirkan 3 orang anak. Saya berkerja sebagai seorang
eksekutif dan suami saya berkerja biasa saja.

 Kebanyakan belanja rumah seperti ansuran rumah dan kereta saya yang membayarnya demi suami yang mempunyai gaji tidak seberapa. Suami saya boleh lah dikatakan menarik jika dibandingkan  saya,tinggi,putih dan menarik minat ramai perempuan semasa bujangnya.

Saya mengabdi diri seluruhnya untuk rumah tangga,pagi sebelum pergi kerja saya akan masak utk anak2, sarapan utk suami,saya memandu sendiri ke paejabt dan setelah balik ke rumah pada petangnya saya  lah yang menyediakan segala keperluan rumah tangga.

Sepanjang perkahwinan suami tidak pernah komplen pasal perwatakkan saya,saya memakai tudung,dia nampak biasa saja,tetapi dia tidaklah sentiasa tertarik kepada saya semasa di rumah seperti cuba mencium saya,memeluk atau memegang saya,biasa shj kami akan bersama bila waktu malam apabila dia perlukan saya.

Baru2 ini saya mendapat tahu dia mempunyai kekasih di tempat kerja sendiri.gadis tersebut bukanlah muda dari saya tetapi sudah berumur 30 tahun, saya mendapat tahu juga yang suami saya sering ke rumah gadis tersebut semasa waktu kerja.Hubungan yang terjalin nampaknya telah smapai ke tahap sex.

Bila saya bersemuka dan bertanya kepadanya,pada mulnya dia menafikan..tetapi setalah di kemukan bukti dan sebagainya baru dia  mengaku.Saya ingin tahu kenapa dia menjalain hunbungan,apa kurang
saya,dia akhir berterus terang mengatakan memang tiada apa yangkurang dengan saya,saya menjaga makan minum,membantu kewangan,menguruskan rumahtangga dengan baik tetapi saya hanyalah setakat itu shj tiada rangsanngan lagi bila melihat saya.

Baginya dia kadangkala ingin bersama wanita yang dilihat cantik,menarik minat lelaki lain dan bila berjalan sama menimbulkan cemburu pada lelaki lain.Dia dengan berani memberitahu saya bahawa
 teman wanita nya mempunyai kuku yang cantik,perut yang nipis,bau yang  sedap,fashion yang menarik.Sedangkan saya menurutnya walaupun tidak  hodoh teteapi hanyalah wanita yang sangat biasa saja,kuku saya pendek dan kadang2 rosak kerana memasak,rambut pulak kadang2 berbau bila balik kerja kerana bertudung sepanjang hari,perut saya pula tebal tidak menarik dirumah bila hanya ber t shirt dan berkain batik.


       Hari2 melihat saya dia merasa tiada apa yang dibanggakan tentang  saya,bercakap dirumah pula hanyalah tertumpu pasalrumah,anak2..tiada topik menarik separti teman wanitanya yg boleh bercakap pasal politik, career, mempunyai taste yang tinggi dan dapat membantu dia mengenali  dunia yang baru mengaenai fashion,korporat,jadi dia merasakan seperti  lelaki yang berjaya bila bersama wanita tersebut.

Memang saya akur tentang perawakan saya kerana pertama memang saya dilahirkan begini,kedua sya terlalu sibuk untuk membelek diri  sendiri,ketiga saya tidak mempunyai cukup wang untuk berbelanja
sepenuhnya untuk kecantikan. Begitulah hati budi lelaki sebenarnya walau bagaimanapun kita menjaga
dia tetapi dia masih mementingkan fizikal jauh disudut hati ingin bersama wanita menarik yang boleh menbuat dia berasa bangga.

Saya telah pun berpisah dengan suami sekarang tetapi sya tidak lah duduk meratap tetapi menghadiri slimming session dan membelanjakan duit separuh untuk kecantikan bukan untk lelaki tetapi untuk kepuasan sendiri,biarlah saya pendek dan sedikit tembam tetapi saya berazam untuk menjaga kebersihan dan kelihatan menarik.
