Buffetting : Quizzes

Your view on yourself:
You are intelligent, honest and sweet. You are friendly to everybody and don't like conflict. Because you're so cheerful and fun people are naturally attracted to you and like to talk to you.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You like serious, smart and determined people. You don't judge a book by its cover, so good-looking people aren't necessarily your style. This makes you an attractive person in many people's eyes.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.

The seriousness of your love:

You are very serious about relationships and aren't interested in wasting time with people you don't really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love.

Your views on education

You may not like to study but you have many practical ideas. You listen to your own instincts and tend to follow your heart, so you will probably end up with an unusual job.

The right job for you:

You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life.

How do you view success:

You are afraid of failure and scared to have a go at the career you would like to have in case you don't succeed. Don't give up when you haven't yet even started! Be courageous.

What are you most afraid of:

You are afraid of having no one to rely on in times of trouble. You don't ever want to be unable to take care of yourself. Independence is important to you.

Who is your true self:

You are full of energy and confidence. You are unpredictable, with moods changing as quickly as an ocean. You might occasionally be calm and still, but never for long.

Apart from the lovey-dovey issues, which I'd never encounter before, there others were practically right on the spot!

Most users claimed that its just the majority and random probabilities, but hey, if its THAT true, the serendipity of these chances are quite high.

The view on success is probably Jack Pot, because the fear of not succeeding can really crumble of someone's morale.

Well, why don't you give it a try over (

Buffetting : Why the butler?

Don't you think that adults are ALWAYS contradicting themselves?

Seriously, if the other siblings couldn't care to call the butler to tell him its dinner time, why should the butler care more? Its not like the butler is obligated to fund them with food when time comes, seeing how much pay this butler gets. It's like the butler is the fount of all domestic means of the siblings.

C'mon, they are above 13 years old no less, and if they WANT food, they should call instead of waiting till someone with a car returns home and found out they aren't occupied with any.

So why should the unpaid butler care?

The butler has his life to live too.

Plus, it WAS the siblings who said that the butler needed some work out, and now the butler got screwed because he went for some work out and no buying food for the siblings simply because they didn't even bother to call?

Hello?! Earth to siblings. Butler has a life too you know. Being a butler without any pay or respect or credit from the siblings can really drive him nuts, worse out of the house.

Its okay, you guys are doing a bang up job right now.

Don't be surprise if the butler quits one day and never return.

Because he have had enough of these idiotic pieces of shits.


Guess this butler is pretty damn popular.

Buffetting : Odd sheep

Living in a big family is not easy, and things get worse when you are the odd one out.

Taking up squash instead of badminton in the adolescent years was the perfect shift out from the sibling circle.

And being out of the circle means you don't get to spend much time sharing the same interest and topics, and that ranges the gossips of the favorite players to meeting with the circle's friends.

Somehow, living in such situation seemed to be perfectly fine by now, although the odd thoughts come and leave occasionally like, "Guess I'm not part of the family," or " Yes I was probably picked up by the trash , ending up with the name of 'bin'".

The years back in high school did provide a perfect landscape for independence and reticent training.

Stepping into adulthood in 2011 as a 20 years old male, Binn being self-centered Binn should probably reduce the rate of reticence.

Yet, its such a normal thing to do, avoiding the act can be uncomfortable.

It's a real pleasure to be a patient listener for others, but being a person who perform the consultation can be tricky.

Of course, many parties bring out the issue of trust and all. Yet, what can actually be solved by telling others. If its something that a person himself can solve, probably no one else can solve for him. By the end of the day, its up to his personal views and actions.

Back to being different.

Sometimes it might be the subconscious acting on its own to pull Binn out of the family.

Taking up Japanese somehow did wonders on such phenomenon.

While the family hunts and nails down every Taiwanese Hokkien drama from channel 333 of Astro subscription, Binn had rather lock himself in his room enjoy his dramas and movies.

Up till today, the development of mental state to leap out of this cage of indifference and misery has evolved so much, the act of stripping one's family name came up multiple times.

It's a bad thing, of course.

Disappointment. Sadness. Anger. Fury.

Yet, if there's nothing in common, what's the point of being family? Just because you were born into it? Or simply because the society said so?

Buffetting : Parenting

As posted by a fellow blogger Jer Renn on parenting, the American way of bringing up children seemed to be ideal for typical Asian youngsters, especially on the freedom policy.

Growing up in a typical SEAsian Chinese family, freedom is practically what every child desires.

It was still really vivid in my memories on the disapproval by my mum for me to attend birthday parties during the elementary days.

In Asia, the answer would be:

"No, I said no, and don't ask anymore," was practically what I hear every single time.

In Western Countries, the answer would probably be:

"Fine, as long as you don't get into trouble and finish your school work on time,". Of course, revoking such agreement would cause the kids in to be grounded.

Yet, there is also a different side, especially when it comes to earning possessions.

In most Asian families, the parents would spend cash to buy stuffs like toys, bags or food for their children.

In western families, the phenomenon will be different, so as the children will be asked to work for the possessions themselves, even when the parents can afford them, in most cases.

It might be how Asian parents try to reward their children after attaining those high grades, at the same time show some sentimental side of them.

The western parents are somehow much more liberal, and treats their children like adults. Undeniably, there are parents who love their children so dearly that they'd just serve everything with a silver cradle. In most cases, the parents are liberal.

Of course, being Asian, studies was the priority for all children. By hook or by crook, a satisfactory grade based on the child's capability was mandatory. As for Binn, studies was something which was never granted such freedom.

Being pressured to score high grades since primary school was vexing and stressful. There are curses and resentment along the way, and describing the mum as Devil was one of them.

Up till today, the same adjectives were used, due to the born nature of the mother.

Nevertheless, those pressure was somewhat a motivation to push Binn to a higher level.

Binn was the average student, and scoring an A would be enough. Yet the mum wants more, most of the time the idea of hitting the 1st place in class would be perfect.

It was not until I was in Pre-University level which I'd hit the target, but it was the self-subconscious which did the driving, instead of the yabbling and babbling of the mother.

Those pressure from young has seemed to sowed a seed in the mind, pushing the person to a further extend.

I've no idea to be thankful, or to resent those pressure. I never like those pressure.

It's probably the pressure has cause Binn to be so much more a worry-wort and neurotic most of the time today.

I guess a big part of the mind is thankful of the pressure.

If not, where would I stand today? If I were to be laid back, would I strive as hard as I did and still is today?

If there weren't any pressure, could I have had the courage to perform all the wonders I did?

But, at the end of the day, these pressure has cast a significant amount of impact on the mind, cause Binn to no want to stay at home.

Living alone in a condominium without any pressure is delightful. And that would be a dream come true.

So how was your childhood? How did your parents brought you up?

Buffetting : Population

It's natural for the human population to grow, especially in developing countries like Malaysia where the increment is on the exponential gradient.

Like it or not, these growths are like double-edged swords.

It Subang Jaya's case, the population growth of human aging 17--25 has burst like the millions of sperm upon ejaculation, hunting after the ova, colleges.

Naturally, the colleges, especially Teilars College, or rather University is very delightful to have these sperms to come in and conceive into billions of cash.
Fine, Imagine Asians instead.

Yet, for normal poor citizens like Binn and gang, these increments bring us into further disaster which the private school across the road, Seri Kei Elle has caused since the the dawn of time.

Jammed roads, idiotic pieces of shits consisting from aunties to dirtbags who can't drive in their own lanes, overly-packed food court, and owh yes, random parking right in front of the house lot.

You get what Binn mean.

Anyway, if there's any chance which the ticket is available to any of the selected countries including US, UK, Japan, HK or even Aussie, Binn's gonna nab it and fly~

Why? Cause the trafficking system in Malaysia suck like shit.

Buffetting : Metta

Loving-kindness, and that's something which is lacked by almost 99% of the human population in Malaysia.

Personally, it's really hard to channel the thoughts and mindfulness into trying to feel happy, especially when there are shadows of other parties flashing into your mind every quatron seconds.

Binn just tried like, 30 minutes ago.

Seriously, it's really hard to try practicing such mindset, even more when you are raging inside.

It happens that Kare4 is having such policy that every rm128 spent on a single receipt, the customer is entitled to have a RM8 rebate voucher.

Sadly, alcoholic drinks were not in the list, as Msia is a Muslim country, where alcohols reigns with pretty much less, or no freedom or with 200% tax.

The phenomenon was the claiming of voucher with alcohol purchases is prohibited, and the family did tried to claim anyway.

Binn volunteered to run to the counter to check the claim status, as the sister was taking far too long to claim, without a single phone call of confirmation.

As "honestly", yet labeled as "stupid"/"dumb"/"foolish"/"you will not survive in the society" act of Binn abruptly blurting the words of "So alcohols can claim ar?" across the air, the claim was halted by the dude/dudess from the customer services, right before the sister signed.

After some arguments and deliberation, the claim was official rejected.

"I can't believe a 20 years old can be THIS stupid,"

"Why can't you just shut up and ask 'is everything fine instead'?"

Presumably the following dramas is well expected and well known by Msian readers.

"May I be well and happy always," that was the verse kept ringing in the mind.

Everything else was forcefully ignored in order to invoke... fine, inFUSE the verse into the oval head of Binn.

Proudly, the mind was managed to be settled down and the rage of burning flares was put off by the calmness of the head.

It was such a satisfying feeling and satisfaction in order to calm oneself down, and not debate further, for the sake of oneself well-being, as well as other parties.

It would be nice to be practicing more of such ideology. Yet, not the expense of one's principal and mind.

One should start wishing himself well before he start focusing on others, because the thoughts of hatred or vengeance might just rise, even more when you are enraged by a particular subject.

The mom said it was THE principle of life.

But something rang in Binn's head.

THE was referring to HER life. What about MY principle?

So, you expect Binn to give extra dosage of drugs to sedate someone else, or to not bother of some tiny extra drugs in the patient's list?

Sorry, I have MY principles too. And I will keep on to it.

Being born in an accountant and business field monopolized family has made cash something so essential that it can't be clung out of our lives.

I for one, want to be different.

Of course, everyone wishes to live in wealth, but still I'm fine with terms with cash, particularly when it comes to honesty with cash.

Well, I guess I have a longer road towards practicing wholesomely with the ideology of Metta.

What about you? Would you practice Metta towards the people around you?

Buffetting : Greet up

How do you actually greet a stranger the first time you see him?

Hello, Hi, Nice to meet you, It's a pleasure meeting you, Whaddap dog? and the list goes on.

Yet, they're probably nice words just to make a good 1st impression of yourself towards the other party.

Lets zoom back HOME instead.

How do you greet the family members?

Lets phrase it, do you greet them at all?

The weird thing is, we'd probably treat some stranger nice and better, with wide smiles and sparkles coming off our eyes, as compared to someone as close as our own family.

Binn probably just say, "Owh you're back? Uhm okay," when the members come home.

Isn't it weird?

What kind of cosmic rule has stated, or which ideology has gone into most people minds that, consideration of a stranger's feeling is so much more important than the family's?

Somehow, Binn felt this way all the time, and of course acts like this too.

Maybe being so close has automatically programed some kind of assumption that the family would be fine or naturally be adapted to such circumstances, which leads to Adaptive Radiation...

Baah shut it with the STPM Biology.

Well, I guess this happens a lot nowadays, where formalities are only made mandatory in most upper-class wealthy families, with butlers and maids all over the house; or in feasts and among royalties.

Did I mention about first dates?

I personally has not been to one yet, so how was yours?

How do you react to your family as compared to strangers?

Buffetting : Ways to Drink

Have you looked into the mirror before while you were gulping the H2O down your throat?

If you do, what position do you hold as you wash the liquid down?

Do you put your hand by your side?

Do you hold it right in the middle of the air, approximately few inches in front your chest?

Do you just hold your water container with your both hands?

Something which Binn has realized, the right hand normally holds the bottle while tucking it into the hippo-sized mouth, whereas the left hand normally clutches onto the shirt for Pete knows reasons.

Any psychology bachelors out there can explain such phenomenon?

There are also other sights you can spot while someone else is drinking.

Some prefer to drink without any lip contact with the bottle, causing some of the water dripping down their chest, which most ladies find it sexy in men.

Some take a big gulp down their stomach, and take a DEEEP breathe after.

Some breathe while drinking the water.
Of course, this can only be done by peeps in this age, or pretty much only those who practice acrobats can drink like this.
So, what position you take while drinking?

Buffetting : Ignorance

How do you define ignorance?

According to Wikipedia:

Ignorance is a state of being uninformed (lack of knowledge). The word "ignorant" is an adjective describing a person in the state of being unaware and is often used as an insult. "Ignoramus" is commonly used in the UK and Ireland as a name of someone who is overwhemingly ignorant.

Ignorance should be distinguished from stupidity, although both can lead to "unwise" acts. Also, if important information is available, one may fail to acquire it due to lack of intelligence (not realizing its importance, or not understanding it).

Is it a good thing, or is it a bad thing to you?

Being in the Charles Darwin's system, competition is inevitable.

Back in the STPM days for biology, in order for evolution to take place, there's a requirement of competition, and also variation, leading to survival of fittest and struggle of living.

They are all still very vivid in the mind, even till today.

Yet, we often hear of words and terms of ignorance, particularly when we are too ambitious, or when we take things too seriously while competing with those around us.

Case study 1:

In you own class even in college, do you feel the surge of at least being the BEST in something? Best in presentation? Perhaps best in a particular subject? Best in organizing the class' activities?

When you see others doing so well, don't you feel like being in the tier also?

Yet, some, or perhaps most people will tell you to not bother too much, and try to keep it to your own pace.

It's actually all perspectives, as long as you reach YOUR target.

Case study 2:

Your hair is as messed up as it seems to the whole wide world.

Yet, you think its how it best express yourself.

Do you change it to another style to fit into the society norms, or do you stay who ever you are and allow cock-stares at your hair whenever you wall down the street?

Well, you should know the answer for yourselves.

The meditation class focuses on the concept of Awareness.

And yet, to laymen the monks seemed so ignorant to what is happening in the outside world.

So how do they promote awareness? Do they actually embrace the theory itself?

It's time to seek for the ideology right now.

Buffetting : Hunting

His eyes were sniping here and there looking for his victim.

There were so many of them and the lights beaming around was too disturbing for him to lock on.

Even more, the constant sonic fluctuation has made him lose his concentration more than he'd expected.

Calmly, he took a sit, had a sip of vodka, and rest his eyes for a second battle.

This time, he sat further from the hurls of beams and waves for a better focus.

Finally, with swishing sandy hazel hair, a mild scent of Le Blanc parfum, he has found the perfect prey.

As their eyes locked on together, the surge of current crossing through their pupil...

*Use the given extract to complete a story of your own, out of the norms."

As most people do in the society, hunting and feeding would be practically the best,or not logical ways to seek for their life partners.

Be it by chances, accidents or by means, the objective of MOST hunts is to mate.

Biologically speaking, hunting occurs as phremones of both sexes, or some cases even same sexes act on and attract each other, as result of nature's cosmic way to determine if the particular subject is able to produce a fertile and desirable offspring.

Sounded like Species, but that's how the nature goes.

Most youngsters who have committed pre-marital sex may blame them on the hormones, which in this case the pheromones, are scientifically acknowledged.

Yet, humans aren't mere animals. We are gifted by nature with the aesthetic control over ourselves, and siblings can't blame their hormones to commit incest do they?

Same goes to those who have commit pre-marital sex before the age of maturity.

Back to hunting. It was only recently that Binn realized how both sexes hunts for their partners.

Basically, the procedures stay the same.

Snipe, Lock on, and be either satisfied and go drooling over, or shake the head vigorously and give absurd critics over the looks.

Obviously, all parties do the same, undeniably Binn does it too.

Nevertheless, due to such confined culture of the Eastern country, being a Muslim country on top, less than 5% of the population dares to forward and go beyond the walls of snipe-feeding.
Of course, the potency of Binn to walk forward is also much confined in our environment. Yet, its pretty much easier and natural if Binn were to be in the same scenario in much , so to speak FREE-er countries such as US or Canada, heck even in Singapore, the following step of getting the number or even a drink is possible.

Guess this is what the term cultural-influence plays its part.

Since Us is gonna happen in a few months, maybe Japan or Hong Kong, guess Binn has to start coping with these kind of trends by then.


Binn real good boy since forever.

What about your outings? Do you have the guts to forefront and ask your hunt for the number or buy them drinks?

Buffetting : HKU Interview

It was just like the MUET speaking test I had back in my STPM days.

Both Prof Choi and Prof Tam weren't a little close to be known as scary. In fact, both of them were as described by a fellow interviewee, Nicole---Elderly CUTE.

Fine, they were both male so no Lemon Party pictures around here.

The group interview was okay, practically it was like the normal routine, intro, then group discussion.

Sadly, I was the 1st to start, the Binn practically screwed up a little here and there.

Talked overly fast.
Talked before the brain managed to process.
Blurting out words which shouldn't be saying for Pete's know what reasons.

The worst part, I've only managed to BOAST about my experience as a Buddhist Society President.

What about Disciplinary Officer, Squash Club Secretary, Scouts Quarter Master and the long lists.

Well, somehow for comforting purposes, Binn came out with a good reason.

Since everything boast-able has been written on the CV, might as well just churn about something recent and which has cast more impact.

The group members were real intelligent peeps. We had Nicole, Jessica, owh wait, how is it that CHINESE name are much more easier to forget?

I'm sorry peeps, if you so happen to come across this blog, I apologize and please to drop your name by the comment box so I can contact you someday!

A total of 6 young people, 50% of both genders.

Even though Binn was the only person pursuing health sciences, the others were brilliant in tackling the issue of Global Warming.

It was really an argumental conversation, and speaking out was like IMPOSSIBLE for the first 4 minutes due to the high enthusiasm portrayed by everyone.

Finally Binn managed to butt into the conversation to point out some views on how global warming has spread and the lack of attention and man-power has been invested on it.

Same goes to the idea of GREED participating into the consideration of managing the phenomenon, even more for developing countries like ours, and also the leading one in China.

Everything was really scientific and the whole conversation went a little off course when Binn butted in to talk about plastics, and the direction was heading somewhere else.

So Binn had to take responsibility and invoke a new issue to relate the whole conversation back to global warming.

The first university interview wasn't that bad, though Binn could have performed better with individual interviews as the pressure ain't that immense. Group interviews are fun, but not as fun when you were the 1st in the row.

Anyways, obtaining the offer letter from HKU upon submission of the actual STPM results would be enriching.
