More Thanh Words

"My name is Thanh and I'm a Blogger". Now that I have admitted to that, I can say that I'm a stereotypical "geeky" Engineer who enjoys sci-fi books and movies and into all things technological. I also love music and have a passion for FOOD. I'm a social person and like to talk to people. I hate people who are fake or overly aggressive. If you're also into some serious discussion, with a pinch of sarcasm and a dash of real emotion, then please read on.

Still Alive

Wow, it's been over two weeks since my last post. I don't think there are any regular readers of this blog. But if there is, I'm still alive. Just been having too much fun and therefore no time to blog.

Here's a quick note on some things.

* Indiana Jones and The Whatever is very boring. I slept through some of it.
* Get Smart was better than I expected. It was quite funny and true to the style of the original series.
* Flight of the Conchords is the funniest show on TV at the moment.
* Go Hawks, we finally have a chance to win the flag.
* I really like macarons now. They're not so hard to make after all.
* I hope I get a pay rise during this coming work performance review. I'm not sure where my career is headed. I don't know what I want to do?
* The Amazing Race is back on. I really want to go on a holiday, but don't have enough money. Paris (the city, not the person), I will see you one day soon.
* Saving money is so hard. I've tried to be frugal this month, but have already spent nearly $800 in half a month.
* Tax time is coming up. I'm not looking forward to doing my personal and business tax at all. I might need an accountant this time. I'm also going to have to pay heaps of tax, damn.
* I went on a couple of training courses at AIM on Fitzroy Street. Their lunches are really good. The training was ok too. I'm now more assertive and can speak in public better.
* The Euro Championships was quite good. I stayed up to watch quite a few games. Guus Hiddink is a genius.
* Wimbledon is on. I hope Federer wins again. He's looking a bit shaky but he's still in it. A Englishman might also win the cup in a long time in Andy Murray. There's been heaps of massive shock exits from the top players this year. It makes things interesting.
* Currently I'm listening to Jordin Sparks, the youngest American Idol winner. I also like listening to Sam Sparro, an up and coming Aussie artist. Black and Gold is the catchiest song at the moment.
* Finally, I'm getting quite fat now. I really need to exercise and eat less.

Hey Thanh! I've been out of the blogging ring lately too but plan on being more "regular" from now on. Actually I've probably been saying that for the past year or so. But I've got a new job now which requires me to speak and write coherently so thought I should get back on the blogging horse.

Anyway I plan on seeing Get Smart (and Dark Knight) very very soon! Saw Mongol last week - have you seen that one? It's a historical account on Genghis Khan.

Yes I was dragged along to see it :)

First of all, that's very OLD news.

Second of all, trying to touch your toes every night after stuffing your face with pork ribs doesn't count as 'exercise'.

Anonymous, it is my way to short cut all the posts. There's too much to cover and not enough time.

Mish, how have you been? It's funny how we've all seem to have lost the impetus to blog as much. Life gets busy I suppose.

I want to go see Dark Knight too when it comes out. I haven't seen Mongol yet. How was it?

Anonymous, well touching my toes is better than not.

Fat Do,

Then what's the point of posting at all. People read your blog to get inside review of your experience of your latest activities.

What you have done is nothing more than a short diary entry which no one could care less.

If you got no time, then retire from your job.
