3 secrets about me

16 Sep

I got an invitation or should I say a challenge to write 3 things about myself from Aura.

*** Fact No. 1 ***
Ok, the first secret is, I love to collect bottled Coca-Cola. I started to collect them since 1995 when I had to do my 'Tour Of Duty' in Taiwan. I also collected canned Coca-Cola but lately I stopped it as most of my canned Coca-Cola had already leaked out and I had to throw them away.

Countries of bottled Coca-Cola I had : Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, USA, India, Arab Saudi and Greece.

Thanks to all who remembers to buy it for me.

*** Fact No. 2 ***
Oh.. What my second secret eh? Haha.. I don't like hotdogs/sausages. I don't like the smell, taste and color (it look like… opp!). I hate when the canteen stall put hotdogs in the Nasi Goreng!

During my Army Days, we got our supper every night. So there will be some foods. Normally we get buns. What inside the buns? Hehe, like Forest Gump said: "You never know what you get." When someone said it hotdogs, I will give away my share to others.

*** Fact No. 3 ***
What else? Ok.. My third secret is Nasi Brani at Block 125 Toa Payoh. That is where the superb nasi brani rice in Singapore. The curry, not too good. But… Wait! Here my suggestion. Instead of taking the chicken curry, ask for the chicken sambal. It is the best combination and my favorite. That is my special menu when I went there.

But the best chicken curry is at Block 324 Bukit Batok.

*** Fact No. 4 ***
Secret number 4?? Haha.. It a bonus for you. Anyway, when I was young, my dream was to be a policeman. But, due to my eye-sights, I had to forget about it.

*** That's All Folks! ***

Ok.. 4 secrets had been broken. No more a secret.. haha…

3. When did the problem start and what time the problem would occur most likely:
4. Operating system (OS version / Service Pack):
5. Can the problem be resolved when PC directly connected to cable modem (bypass router):
