    zeelo sum game onli lah. The end loser is usj.com.my Period.

    A community forum web site is like the universe. Both require inhabitants to populate and justify their existence. The inhabitants are full of colours and spices. Not 2 are the same. If everyone thinks, talks, argues, jokes, pens like me, this will be such a boring place...
    Colourful characters like the late Sentinel with his many nicks and even Opulant (with his many nicks too do honestly lend so much joy to this otherwise ghostly site. I aint never got no issues with both of them...That said, I actually enjoy the knowledge, sugar & spices, insults, antics, banterings and batterings too. Plus of course, a number of friends and 'tai ko' cultivated here over the years too.

    So if we are all so sugary and nice, where got fun lah? Life is like a living heart beat, it needs the rush, the highs and lows and the occasional missed beats too!
    In my books, a virtual insult or a verbal beating is nothing but my fave nursery "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names can never hurt me".

    Ada berani? Bring it on!

    Well he is history now so no need to have a prolong discussion on this but imho agree he did much damage to the forum's participation, .....but let's see if old timers will make a comeback. Hope BSLee will reconsider his option.

    I think the 'glorious' days for this forum were during the early 2000s, when there were so many contributors (when Jeff Ooi was around). But with the passage of time, many people moved on, got other things to do etc. I myself first moved into the USJ area in year 2000, then, in my late 30s, now I am in my mid 50s.

    I used to post under a different ID (during those days but I forgotten the password) but I was also busy with my work & other things in life (like playing the role of being a father; my 2nd kid was 3 mths old when I first moved to USJ) & during a long period of time, I didn't really come into this forum.

    I created another ID last year, & I realised then, that this forum was extremely quiet with only 2 or 3 regular contributors( I still remember those days when David Yau/Sentinel contributed under his 'Green Bug' ID & his tussle with Stand Chart!).

    Hey thanks for the heads up. Yes, I noticed some just gave up posting but I have to admit it was an entertaining ringside seat spectacle when those two taikos wannabe hammer each other (I remember the F word in bold literally flew out many times in one posting!) as though they were fighting a turf war outside of banana plantation. Ya, those were the once in a lifetime days! Reminiscence of those "not too long but gone" great days pass us by ....... like those yearning and harking for the the good old days in the 70s and 80s. Just half joking...

    Your profile is similar to mine. My kids born and grew up in Subang Jaya. It is a nice place for the kids to grow.

    No lah. Jeff Ooi was/is just an elegantly quiet owner of this site. He didnt contribute much except for the occasional wanna 'tayang' only. Many old timers have had lotsa virtual 'skirmishes', 'batterings' and 'hammerings' with this site LCLY owner. And Poor mod Mr Chang got 'volunteered' into his task until today. Jeff called for volunteer-mod, the lot took a step backward and guess who was caught standing still up front?

    Yeah, true that. Sentinel's fight with Std Chart was a classic David vs Goliath. Of course, Goliath won but with a bloody nose to crow. This fight actually did influence me on NOT having SC on my panel of banks Those were the 'glorious' days indeed esp Sentinel & I with our whisky and cigar chomping session...then we also TT sessioned with all the Mr & Mrs Teetotaler nice people of USJ.com.my and a certain airline crew will bring a bottle of very matured grape juice to share amongst the matured kids...

    AHHHHH...pleasant memories indeed.

    And of course, I also enjoyed David Yau's/Greenbug/Sentinel subsequent tussle with Manulife! I really missed his presence in this forum.
