Malaysian Idol II Finale

It's now the final 2 so I guess I shouldn't miss out on the critics before the results are annouced tomorrow though I'm not a loyal fan of MI. Wonder who will win this year? Last year was pretty obvious who the winner would be but this year, both are so different. Daniel is the slow and steady type with soft voice and sweet while Nita is the hot and happening type with strong and heavy voice that when reaches its peak can easily break a glass.

Daniel looks ok but Nita looks odd with her dyed blonde hair. Not to forget Nita is so much taller than Daniel, she made him look small on the huge stage as what Paul said after his first song tonight. Nevertheless, they're both good.

Anyway, I don't think I'll be voting for any of them. They just don't seem to have appealed to me to vote for them. Neither did any from last year though I knew Jac is a clear winner. As for this year, it's everyone's guessing. All the best to the two.

My my....

Oh my... it's so long. Some I agree, some I'm not sure, some don't agree. Got from this site

You entered: Tan Chun Eng
There are 10 letters in your name.
Those 10 letters total to 44
There are 3 vowels and 7 consonants in your name.

Your number is: 8

The characteristics of #8 are: Practical endeavors, status oriented, power-seeking, high-material goals.

The expression or destiny for #8:
Your Expression is represented by the number 8. The 8 Expression is well-equipped in a managerial sense. You have outstanding organizational and administrative capabilities. You have the potential for considerable achievement in business or other powerful positions. You can expect to receive the financial and material rewards. You have the skill and abilities to establish or operate a business with great efficiency. You have good judgment when it comes to money and commercial matters, and you understand how to build and accumulate material wealth. Much of your success (or lack of it) may come due to your ability (or inability) to judge character. With the number 8 Expression, you exercise sound judgment in most of your affairs; you are realistic and practical in your approach to business matters.

The positive 8 Expression produces individuals that are very ambitious and goal-oriented. If the 8 energy is not in excess in your makeup, you will no doubt express these traits to some extent. No one has any more energy that a person with the 8 Expression who has a plan laid and is starting to work. No one has any more self-confidence, either. If you are expressing the positive qualities of 8, you are an outstanding manager because you can plan, initiate, and complete projects; you are very dependable and determined.

As it always happens, there can be too much of a good thing. If you have too much of the 8 energy in your makeup, you may express some of the negative attitudes. A negative 8 can be very rigid and stubborn. Ambition sometimes has a way of becoming over-ambition, and you may express an unreasonable impatience with the lack of progress. If your negative side is showing, you may be too exacting, both of yourself and of others. Sometimes this can even becomes a case of intolerance.

The number 8 is very materialistic and also very desirous of status and power. Neither of these drives are inherently negative unless they are taken to an extreme. You must avoid the tendency to strain after money, material matters, status, or power, to the detriment of the other important factors in your life.

With a 9 Soul Urge, you want to give to others, usually in a humanitarian or philanthropic manner. You are highly motivated to give friendship, affection and love. And you are generous in giving of your knowledge and experience. You have very sharing urges, and you are likely to have a great deal to share. Your concern for others makes you a very sympathetic and generous person with a sensitive and compassionate nature.

If you are able to fully realize the potential of your motivation, you will be a very self-sacrificing person who is able to give freely without being concerned about any return or reward.

As with all human beings, you are prone to sometimes express the negative attitudes inherent to your Soul Urges. You may become too sensitive and tend to express emotions strongly at times. There can be significant conflict between higher aims and personal ambitions. You may resent the idea of giving all of the time and, in fact, if there is too much 9 energy in your nature you may reject the idea. You may often be disappointed in the lack of perfection in yourself and others.

Your Inner Dream number is: 8

An Inner Dream number of 8 means:
You dream of success in the business or political world, of power and control of large material endeavors. You crave authority and recognition of executive skills. Your secret self may have very strong desire to become an entrepreneur.

The fuss of modern working days

In the modern day, working life isn't as enjoyable anymore. Yet, we're all stuck with it in the name of "SURVIVAL". To many of us, we don't work we don't get paid. We don't get paid, we can't eat, pay bills or buy our favourite stuff. And working in the corporate world sometimes can make things difficult and life more stressful.

People say, working for ourselves is better. But that would usually mean even longer hours because we have to maintain our business. There are also worries. Whether we're an employer or employee, it's both sucks because working life sucks because just how many of us can say, "I'm not working today..." ????

As for me, I don't mind working long ours if I know it's a worthwhile investment of my time. But your boss may not even appreciate it and would keep asking for more. And we can't just refuse because we're not financially secured to just leave our jobs. Many people has realised this and have other side incomes in them. To this people, it's great that they know how... and I want to learn and know how.

I'm that kind of person who enjoys working but I find my job is getting too technical for me that has made me to reconsider my prospects in life. Should I just leave IT and find some other jobs? What? I'm not equip to do Sales & Marketing... I'm not qualified to do Accounts & Finance, neither am I good with my handcrafts, graphics or decos.

Some experts says we should learn how to let money for us. There's a marketing saying that reads: "You spend money to make money", but how are we able to make money in the first place to even let it work for us? Do we have that kind of making money mentality or be a money minded person? I'm still looking for the "HOW" factor and also the right "ATTITUDE".

Man... at only 22 years of age... I'm already worried of so many things. Thinking of so many questions.
