NEW Google Logo!!!

(Wednesday, February 14, 2007)

Google must be one of the MOST accessed pages on the Internet. As usual, I found myself going there to search for something. That’s when I noticed something new, and different…yet odd.

It’s very obvious that they’ve uploaded a new logo (for Valentine’s Day), like what they normally do. They usually changes their logo whenever there’s a special occasion. My first impression about the logo was, it’s quite a simple and nice idea…replacing the ‘g’ with a strawberry coated in chocolates….just makes me wanna have some. haha. However, like I’ve said earlier, it felt odd.

Took me a few seconds to notice what’s wrong with it. You notice anything oddly wrong with the new logo?? Have a look.

Google Valentine's Day logo

Then it strike me like…. WTF???

Where’s the ‘l’?? It’s spelled Googe, instead of Google. Some probably might argue that the ‘green stick’ part of the strawberry may form the ‘l’. However, that would be a little too ‘forceful’ don’t you think?

Either someone messed up BIG TIME….or probably cupid was a little hungry?

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE!!!

Man sues wife for NO SEX

(Wednesday, February 14, 2007)

I just finished reading an article online. Pretty darn ridiculous if you ask me. The whole story goes something like this:

A man and lady got to know each other through a matchmaker. After dating for 3 months, they finally planned to get married. But not without a contract. The contract states that the sole ‘purpose’ of the marriage was just for procreation (having babies). And that they’ll be sleeping separately after they’ve consummated (had sexual intercourse). However…

Quote:

On the wedding night, Lin slept fully dressed and wrapped with a quilt, the daily said, without citing any sources.

When Chen tried to sleep with her, the report said, she pushed him away shouting: “You are ridiculous!”

I mean like… WTF???

Why would anyone want to get married, have kids, but wouldn’t have sex, and definitely not sleep with the husband? Why not just go to a sperm bank?

They’ve been together for a year without consummating. The man got so fed up, asked for a divorce, and sued his ‘wife’. And guess what? He WON!

Back from swimming

(Tuesday, February 13, 2007 )

I just got back from swimming. Swam for 31 laps…stopped in the end because time’s up. Of course…in between those 31 laps..I got stop and rest a while lah. Quite impossible to swim non-stop, YET.

1 hour after swimming, I feel damn tired already. Ready to sleep anytime. haha. But I’ll try to stay awake, play some games maybe.

Just wait till tomorrow and the day after, I’m sure my whole body will be hurting like mad. Have to stick to a strict exercise program, to lose some(A LOT OF) weight. I look like I’m well into 5 months pregnant now. Damn…

Paint…paint…paint….

(Monday, February 12, 2007)

I’m back. Second post.

Woke up late this morning, or should I say, afternoon. Spent the whole afternoon painting. First was the flower pot stand. Painted the whole thing bright green. Looks pretty neat. Will post a picture of it tomorrow. Then, I painted some rusting pipes in the kitchen.

After finishing those, I was totally in the mood for painting. So I started painting the rusting gate.

By the time I finished, it was already dark. So, I’ve done a pretty good job, didn’t I? ;-D
