Domino's Hawaiian Cheese Burst Pizza

Domino's Hawaiian Cheese Burst

I got a hot sizzling Domino's Hawaiian Cheese Burst Pizza delivered to my boi this afternoon, but what does "Cheese Burst" mean? It's actually a type of pizza crusts / bases. Domino's Pizza offers two major category of crusts: Famous and Indulgent. The "Famous" crusts are Classic Crust, Deep Pan, and Thin 'n' Crispy. "Indulgent" crusts, on the other hand, are The Edge, Cheese Burst, and Triple Cheese.

Both my boi and I are cheese lovers, so I decided to have a try on the Cheese Burst. As you can see clearly in the photo above, there is a thick layer of creamy cheese dripping out of the classic and wafer thin crust. The pizza tasted extremely yummy and we loved it very much!!!

Supremo Pizza + "Chor Tai Tee"

Papa Guiseppi's Supremo Pizza

Lately, we had been staying up REALLY late, partially was to watch movies and the HK drama called "缘来自有机”. Another reason is because both of us were having Easter holidays and I, myself on the other hand was off from work for one whole week. How awesome could that be?!

In this late afternoon around half-past-five, after we had our late brunch, three of us started to play "Chor Tai Tee" which is also known as "Cho Tai Tee" or simply called "Tai Tee". In between 5.30 p.m. to almost 12 midnight, we only stopped for a very short while to bake the Papa Guiseppi's Supremo pizza for dinner. As the rest of the time, we just played and laughed, laughed and played...

I believe you could hardly imagine playing "Chor Tai Tee" non-stop for 6 hours with no money involved?! Sometimes, the games would turn out to be so much more fun and exciting with just a little twists and turns. I'm always prepared, and surely looking forward for the next coming round!

Test Your Typing Speed

What about you? Hehe, I was wondering around the Internet just now, seeking for some entertainment to kill my boredom. Eventually, I got myself to a Speedtest website where you get to test your typing speed online and I found it's really fun to play around with.

The Seychelles Island

Seychelles Vanilla Tea

Last week, my African housemate has finally came back from his home country located at the northeast of the Madagascar Island. I never know the name of the country until he brought us a pack of SeyTé Vanilla Tea made in Seychelles upon his arrival here. Just out of my curiosity, I started to search for information about this "mysterious place" and I was so surprised to find out that it's such a shockingly wonderful paradise!

CISCO Certified Network Associates (CCNA)

CCNA Textbooks

Starting from semester 1 of 2008, the course name for CSC 3407 has been changed from "Computer Communication and Inter-networking" to "Network Fundamentals and Routing". There are four CCNA Exploration v4.0 courses available in USQ: Network Fundamentals (CCNA 1), Routing Protocols and Concepts (CCNA 2), LAN Switching and Wireless (CCNA 3), and Accessing The WAN (CCNA 4).

One of the core modules I'm taking this semester, covers the contents of both CCNA 1 and 2. Meanwhile, the other two modules are MSC 3001 Pro Issues in Science and Technology, and CSC 3400 Database Systems which requires "hands-on" practicals on softwares like XAMPP, MySQL or PostgreSQL.

I know that it's gonna be a tough semester for me, as I'm not giving up on my part-time job. I've promised myself to study harder in order to achieve higher GPA scores in my final semester. If nothing goes wrong, I'll be graduating in this coming July or August. Here, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Benny for the increase of our salaries.

Not to forget, thanks to those who concerned about my current health status. My family has been worrying so much about me especially my mommy. I'm glad to tell you that I have no more vomiting today, but I started to have bad diarrhea right after I consumed the Inner Health Plus capsules my boi bought for me at Terry White Chemists pharmacy.

I'm So Sick...


I've been vomiting since last night, right after I came back from my evening class. Whatever goes in my mouth comes out through my mouth too. I'm feeling so sick, so weak, so suffer... I can't eat, can't sleep, the feelings are killing me! I felt like crying at the moment I was throwing out, cause it was such a real pain to me and my tears were bursting. I didn't attend any of my classes today, didn't even go to work. Now, the fever has gone away but left me headache and dizziness.

Apple: iPod Touch VS. iPhone

iPod Touch

Recently, My boi has been "hooking up" with the sleek and slim, yet black and stylish iPod Touch that he got as a gift from his cousin in Sydney. At the same time, Benny has also purchased an iPhone which will be arriving on next week. This is why I decided to do a quick research on both of the gadgets.
