"What works for you to kick start the day?" virtualling's Profile

Surely, not cili padi (chili pud-dee) for me.

Cili padi, a.k.a birds eye chili. Tiny little thing. It'll keep your tongue burning, you'll break into sweat and holler for water. Some AXN Fear Factor item. I kid you not.
That photo was taken during my first visit to Tawau, Sabah in East Malaysia in 2005.

I's a Malaysian and lived in Plano, Texas for about a year before moving to Austin.
Coming from Kuala Lumpur, Plano's a breath of fresh air.
The 'burbs is a lot quieter and slower paced.
Plano is about 20 minutes (very much depending on traffic) drive from Dallas.

And Austin is hippie at heart and eccentric, colorful... beaming with life and oh, sounds.

I'm a cam whore by nature and I snap pix of almost everything I find interesting wherever I go. I hope you'll find my tips helpful. My view or review of what I come across may not be up to what you expect to find but I hope you'll browse the pix regardless.
Drop me a note, rate my tips, let's get interactive on VT.

Having said so, this fierce Chinese-Malaysian-Hakka is not shy to delete you from the friend list or ignore you completely, especially when you try to be funny with me, not to mention a pervert and abuse this portal. I suggest you click on dating sites instead, you'll have much better luck there!

*grins* So yea, click on my tips and piccies, leave a rating and a comment or two.

20 minutes after I edited this page, I got this in my VT mailbox:

    if you fly major european or asian airlines then you can take your bike for free as long as you put it in a box. north american airlines can be quite pricy for that though. are you planning on an overseas bike trip?

    Whoops. Didn't know you'd left a msg about SXSW until today. I think the system leaves me permanently logged in but I really don't check it much. Cheers! Hope you enjoyed it!
