Numa Numa Iei! – Dragostea Din Tei

I guess most of you have seen this by now, but seen as though I just fixed my soundcard I’ve been listening to the song for about half an hour on repeat so I thought I’d post about it.

It’s a Romanian song that took europe by storm last year.

It’s called DRAGOSTEA DIN TEI by Haiducii (Love from the linden trees by The Outlaws)

You can see the flash of a hilarious fat guy dancing to the song at Newsgrounds here:

This version has the original, with subtitles and version without the stupid pictures.

The original was first seen here


Alo, Salut, sunt eu, un haiduc,
Si te rog, iubirea mea, primeste fericirea.
Alo, alo, sunt eu Picasso,
Ti-am dat beep, si sunt voinic,
Dar sa stii nu-ti cer nimic.

Vrei sa pleci dar nu ma, nu ma iei,
Nu ma, nu ma iei, nu ma, nu ma, nu ma iei.
Chipul tau si dragostea din tei,
Mi-amintesc de ochii tai.

Te sun, sa-ti spun, ce simt acum,
Alo, iubirea mea, sunt eu, fericirea.
Alo, alo, sunt iarasi eu, Picasso,
Ti-am dat beep, si sunt voinic,
Dar sa stii nu-ti cer nimic.

Lyrics from HERE.

There is an even more scary dude singing it here:

Rock on!

The Corporate Cockshaft – Why we work..

Indeed, thank fuck it’s Friday.

The weekend dawns again, another week of bending over and taking the corporate cock shaft is over.

2 more days and the inevitable cycle will begin again.

We ask ourselves during those periods of reflection, why do we do it? The answer is simple, to earn money, to eat, to buy shiny things, to buy things that blink and beep and do all kinds of interesting stuff.

Everyone has their own view on it, some people seem to live to work, their work is their life, now this line of thinking, I really can’t comprehend and definately can’t subscribe to. Why sacrifice all else for a job, or a career or whatever you want to label it?

If it’s your own company, I can understand, been there done that, you have to work hard to get returns, if you are seeing direct benefits from your sweat, blood and tears then by all means do it. If it’s NOT your company, and you don’t even have shares, or any part of a profit distribution scheme, then what’s the point?

What I always say is..

Work smart, NOT hard.

Some people choose to go totally the other way, those amongst us that are less material and less egotistical, they choose to work as little as possible, make the most of their money and enjoy life to the max without earnings thousands and driving a BMW. I can respect this and probably admire these people most of all, my mother is one of these people, she has never worked full time and probably never well, she earns enough to keep her own house and a new-ish car and to travel all around the world, she doesn’t buy expensive clothes or anything, but the house is nice, mostly filled with old furniture she has bought cheaply from charity shops and restored.

For me this is better than the alternative, losing friends, family and loved ones for work, at the end of it what do you get? A nice house, a flashy car a shitload of bills and a feeling of personal satisfaction? When in fact your life has become hollow, you have become what you earn and what you own, nothing more, nothing less.

I have always done enough to get by, to get to the next level, this was also my thinking in studying, you could call it efficiency I guess. Some people are into going the extra mile, but I say what’s the point in doing more than you need to? Do what you do and do it well, that’s more than enough already.

For me luckily I am in field I enjoy, but I don’t always get to do what I want to do, this is life and this is the corporate world, you end up doing other peoples jobs, why? Because they are incapable of doing it, but why me? Apparently I am one of those people that has a label on their forehead saying “I can do anything”. Which is probably true, I am capable, but it doesn’t mean I want to do it.

Basically the moral is as always we work because we have to, not because we want to, don’t sacrifice priceless things (friends, relationship, family) for the sake of career advancement or material goods, money as you well know by now does not equate to happiness. I agree you have to be happy with yourself before you can be happy with anyone else, or they can be happy with you, but just take a look around, take a look in the mirror, if you stick your head too deep into work, when you pull it out, everything else will be gone.

Work is work is work..

Let’s get paid and let’s get laid.

I’m gonna hang out with my wang out.

I’m gonna rock out with my cock out.

Party on.

P.S. This is the monumental 100th post!

The Crappy Week…

Yeah it has been so far, I guess all the bad things are getting over and done with before the new year (Chinese calendar). My good friend God also got mugged, his post about it HERE.

I crashed my car..beacause I was ill, I kept being ill and actually got iller..ended up going to the doctor on Tuesday night (that reminds me better take my medicine now)..

No alchohol for me seen as though I’m on antibiotics..

Managed to get pretty much everything sorted out with my car on tuesday though, which was cool..turns out you don’t have to ‘pay’ to make a police report, but if the accident is your fault (which if you whack someone in the ass it always is) there is a ‘compound’ fee of 300RM.

The Seargant was very nice though and told me where to go so I could reduce the summons to only 150RM and he gave me 2 months to pay it.

The car is off away with the repair people now, they are taking care of all the paperwork and I’m having the windscreen done too. So should be mad love.

Only thing I was disappointed to find out is that Malaysia does have excess for claims…I was surprised that it didn’t, but two seperate people said they don’t have it here…well guys you do.

For the first driver it was 250RM, not so bad…for named driver (me) it’s 650RM, bit of a killer.

So total pocket damage:

  • Lost NCB for first year 25% of policy = 400RM
  • Excess for claim = 650RM
  • Compound Summons = 150RM
Total = 1200RM


That’s a goddamn lot of burgers and beer.

Oh well I bought 4D for my car number, so if that hits it’ll be good, pretty slim chance of that though.

Being in a bad mood too I decided to treat myself yesterday, after spending most of the day sleeping the medicine off, seen as though I managed to get myself a rather nice office chair, I thought it was about time I sorted out my pc..

I was pretty much 100% sure my CPU was fried I went out and bought a new one, a Sempron 2500+ (1.75ghz, 333mhz frequency), just need to get some RAM now as I am borrowing someone elses (and it’s only 256MB which isn’t really enough)..

Maybe after next payday 馃檪

Whacked the CPU and off I went, OS bluescreened, but that’s to be expected as the motherboard is using a completely different chipset, so I installed the OS back on top of itself and it worked pretty ok.

It seems a bit funky, but well it’s about time I reformatted anyway, so I’ll get that done soon when I tidy that crap up (Noticed I have over 3000 mp3’s aswell..) I missed my songs. Whacked a game of DOTA aswell just to test things out 馃檪 It was good, haven’t played with sound for ages.

Need to stop using Outlook Express aswell, stupid peice of crap, it’s just that my mail filter rules are so complicated, I don’t know if Thunderbird[/url] can import them properly..

I installed the latest Firefox[/url] with all the cool extensions[/url], updated my anti-virus and now I’m ready to go, rocking in the new era of DDR RAM!

So things are ok, no one is hurt..I am feeling ok today, kinda dizzy a bit still though.

Haven’t really eaten properly for 3 days..have definately lost weight too although not in a healthy manner.

Will post again later, with some food 馃檪

Seen as though I’ve fixed my main PC aswell I’ll get some more pics online soon, I found my sunset gallery and some of my diving holidays, although one important CD is missing! The underwater pictures from Redang.
