I smell fishy from Crab Island

Crab Island Trip (Pulau Ketam)
  • 26th April, Saturday - This trip was plan a month ago by my dept. colleagues. So we plan for Pulau Ketam trip as many of my colleagues have not been there before.
  • My last time to P. Ketam is since I am a kid...hardly can remember anything.
  • We meet at Klang KTM Station at 9am. We had small minum teh session nearby the Klang station while waiting for the rest to arrive.
  • Before we head to Port Klang to take the ferry ride to Pulau Ketam, we went to the famous Bak Kut Teh restaurant underneath the Klang Bridge. This restaurant was recommended in Astro TV...Taste with Jason.
  • BKT - We ordered for 8 ppl .... guess what, they don't serve Garlic! Secondly, the BKT is cook and put in the bowl....not in the clay pot. The service staff were unfriendly a bit and this restaurant is Over-Rated!
  • The good thing is the price is reasonable. RM 77 only.
  • After breakfast, we took the KTM to Port Klang. Suprisingly, KTM schedule was very punctual. We start to LOVE KTM service.
  • Arrive Port Klang KTM station bout 10.20am. We need to catch the next ferry at 10.45 to the island. Wai Yee and Jason was on the way....so while waiting for them, we had another round of minum kopi.
  • Too bad, we miss the 10.45am ferry...so we need to wait for next ferry at 11.45am. Per person for the ticket is RM 7 for adult and is paid in the ferry.
  • It was half an hour ride to the island only. We reach the island bout 12.15pm....our first journey was to talk around the P. Ketam fishing village and hunt for nice seafood restaurant.
  • It was a hot and sunny day....By 1 pm, we came to this seafood restaurant (recommended in the newspaper before). We ordered a set package lunch...cost rm 220+. It have most of the seafood dishes in there.
  • Seafood - The crab and vegetable dish was too small portion for 11 ppl. Crab was not fresh at all. The only good stuff we enjoyed is the fried sotong, Lala and Har-Go (Mantis).
  • Oh yeah, we ordered from another stall the Fried O-chen and Fried Lala-chen...damn it, cost us rm 20 for 2 small portion.
  • After lunch, we went for a short fishing tour ....cost Rm 12 per pax. We took a small boat and they drove us to their fishing farm. They had chalet there. So the tour guide explain to us how they rare the fishes and wat type of fishes in each netting. The trip completed in 1 1/2 hr time.
  • By 3.45pm....we took the ferry back to Port Klang. We waited for KTM and it was delayed for almost 45mins...damn it, we start to HATE KTM.
  • Arrive Subang Jaya bout 6pm. It was a nice trip afterall. Really enjoy it.

Wednesday - Friday update

Do you have life?
  • Asking myself this question...is our life all bout work only? Have to admit is a YES.....we need income rite! But another thing struck my mind....are we workaholic and dedicate our personal time to work? ...
  • Took a while of time for me to ponder....i've been telling myself that work is a never ending story....it just come and keep on coming .... how nice i wish I am a student back....where I study 1 week before the examination.
  • Seems after this 3 days, been working late and feeling tired once reach home....cause squeeze too much out from my brain during my office hour. I am a serious kind of people when comes to work and often deliver my task .... but recently, I feel I am slack a bit ... probably, handle too much of projects ... which I don't have the time to monitor each of the task and status.
  • For the next two weeks, will be busy preparing a major tender proposal .... sigh...hate this work especially when comes to documentation.

Fresh grads...

  • Can see new fresh grads injecting into my company.....oh yes, they are so SEMANGAT....anything u ask them to do, they will immediately deliver it to us.
  • After months, we will see them start to take things much easy..... this is the behaviour when you move to a new team, been assign a new task or got a new job....we tend to work harder and efficiently for a moment.
  • Wait till the fresh grads stay longer....they will notice, working life is challenging and is cruel. As for me, I still got the working passion cause I can't stand people who work very slow and slow response.

Work harder or work smarter??

  • Let me share my experience with you ..... work harder doesn't mean you are shoe polisher to show that u r hardworking .... but it show how stupid are you....so be a smart worker!
  • Firstly, u stay at work till late(your boss able to notice if he/she is around), deliver your task very fast and writing a good document and listen to your boss instruction very well. But will u get promoted or appreciated?...YES, U R VERY HARDWORKING PEOPLE....but people might take u for granted.
  • It is different for those who work smarter....
    1. Those smart people will work longer hour when the boss around, and will go home early if they know the boss is not around in the office.
    2. When given a task, always tell your boss that we are busy with other projects and able to deliver within next few days where you can deliver it in a day (reason is, this show that you are busy with other tasks but still manager to deliver the assigned work within days).
    3. Sometimes we got to argue a bit with our boss opinion in a friendly way, then at the end, admit that your boss instruction is much better to save his face...this show that u r a creative and lots of idea kind of person which can contribute to your team altho sometimes is a crap ideas, boss like this kind of people.

Dream Home

Note: While sitting in front of a meeting room doing my work, suddenly 12 hot young models came in for interview. Give me some inspiration to blog .... a lame excuse, kidding only. I was blogging while they walk one by one across me and saying hello to me! (in my dream).....

- They din close the door and I able to hear clearly, the girls doing self- introduction...
1. I am Fion, 20 yrs old, from xxxx college, studying GR .... damn...what is GR??
2. I am Jenny, 19 yrs old, from MMU college, doing Multimedia course.
3. concerntrate back to my work and trying to finish my blog.
4. Wait, another model metion doing science nutrition....wow!

What is your dream home like?
  • Came across this site from google ads ... saw their interior design gallery for this Suria Stonor property at KLCC. It was a luxury condo.
  • Straight away impress me ... too bad, knowing my financial capability...1st, not able to purchase this condo...cost million ... 2nd, no money to renovate such a grand interior environment ... 3rd, got many loans to settle.
  • Sometimes was telling myself, in future, I want to buy one nice house which I like....and slowly renovate phase by phase to become my dream home before moving in. Right now, not able to do renovation on my current house cause many stuff move in and scared to clean up the mess.

I like this bedroom design...firstly, it is wood.....it give me a calm and comfortable feeling. But I will change the bed for sure....i hate wood jugging out cause there is once i jump to this kind of bed and my leg hit the edge of the wood. I love Zen and Bali interior design.


Oh baby, this bath tub is chun.....too bad, dun have jacuzzi. Love the two wash bowl....very nice toilet design. Give u a feel to 'poooh' comfortably.



Oh yes, kitchen and dining hall is important for me. Yeah, I love to eat...dats why I need a nice place to cook and a nice dining place to eat. With the wine rack, I can place my wine bottles there. Clean and simple kitchen n dining hall.



This living room is huge....probably I don't need such a big living room ... not organizing and gang bang event ....

Maxis Friend Finder service

  • Last week, one of my colleague left her handphone in the female toilet...after an hour plus, she notice her missing handphone.
  • Of course, when she went back to the washroom, her hp already missing. Luckily during that time, is those cleaner staff off for duty and was 4pm. We suspect is those cleaner lady. She did subscribe for friend finder service and her hp mobile is still alive when she tried to call.
  • The last trace of her handphone was at Old Klang Road, Taman Evergreen. So she send a message "Please return the phone to me and a small reward will be given to you. I know you are at Old Klang Road" and she send another sms version in BM cause those cleaner is from Indonesia just in case they don't understand English.
  • So I did the malay conversion for my colleague (my BM was much better than my English!). "Tolong kembali handphone saya dan saguhati hadiah akan diberi kepada anda. Saya tahu bahawan kamu kat Old Klang Road". We put the Old Klang Road just to scare her that how the heck we know her location.
  • After few minutes, not able to contact my colleague hp anymore. The person switch off her handset. She went to the Security Room and request for CCTV ... confirmed that the last 3 cleaner ladies seen to walk in to the washroom .... 2 came out from the washroom and 1 came out quite late.
  • The following day, the handset was returned to the owner after questioning those cleaner ladies.

  • Then bump to Daniel and Corina .....same movie and time.

My Melaka trip ... all bout food only

Melaka Visit
  • First of all, my blog is not a foodie blog. Just happen that this time when i go back melaka to visit my parent in law, it is all about food and eat n eat only. I want to introduce some of nice and yummy and cheap Melaka food....
  • Been since CNY till now, havent gone back to Melaka....dat's why me and yve miss Melaka food so much.
  • Here are some of my fav. melaka food:-
    1. Spicy Pan Mee (better than Jln Pudu famous spicy pan mee!)
    2. Yong Tau Fu (fresh and nice kuew teow)
    3. Bak Kut Teh (must tried their yam rice)
    4. Dim Sum (cheap, nice and good)
    5. Nyonya Mee Siam
  • Went on Saturday morning and came back on Sunday night.

Introducing Melaka - Yong Tau Fu

  • Below is the dry kuew teow yong tau fu....i just like their kuew teow.....it is different from ipoh hor fun which is thin. As u can see the kuew teow texture, it a different style of kuew teow, to me, nothing special compare to KL and Ipoh, just a different kind of taste....
  • When arrive Melaka early morning 7.30am, we straight head to this stall for breakfast. It is packed with people. We have to wait for quite a while for our food to come. While waiting, ordered the nyonya nasi lemak bungkus. Yum Yum!
  • Oh yes, the price for YTF is cheap! I think 50-60 sen a piece only!


Must try this Melaka Spicy Pan Mee! --The Best
  • I brought 5/5 my friends to try this spicy pan mee.... all say one this only 'Wow, the best' and they willing to go Melaka once a while just for this spicy pan mee.
  • I am a pan mee food lover .... my friend which brought me to try the famous Jln Pudu Spicy Pan Mee last time, which all ppl say is the best and original. Here is my honest feedback...i find it is nothing special actually and the pan mee is normal....maybe the only special is their fried chili flakes.
  • Oh boy ... was telling myself....is those people eating the fried chili flakes and mixed with the pan mee....and as long it just taste spicy enough....then they claim is the best spicy pan mee.
  • They are wrong, the pan mee ingredients such flour + eggs need to be well balance and of course must blend well with the sauce and soup. Once you tried the Melaka Spicy Pan Mee, u will know which is the best spicy pan mee....no point promoting so much bout it unless u try it. Cuba Sekali, Mahu Lagi!
  • I would say the Melaka style is not as spicy Jln Pudu but it give u the right spicy kick to your tongue. The pan mee was nice and yummy to eat... The sauce taste much better than KL one. Don't under estimate the red chili sambal .... when u mix with the black soya sauce.... u will ask for more only.
  • Obviously, the price got no fight at all with KL....for Big bowl, only cost RM 3.50 , Medium RM 2.50 and small RM 2 only!


Drink tea at Jasmin Tea House, Melaka Raya

  • Went to have a real Tea with yve friends at Jasmin Tea House.
  • I fall sick with sore throat and flu, therefore, they have this special tea flavour to ease my throat and flu. It was refreshing tea.....


Melaka Duck Mee with 'Loh Duck'

  • Midnight, was feeling hungry after Jasmin Tea House .... probably had an early dinner and the tea already digest my food.
  • Wan Sin suggested to bring us to try this duck mee and 'loh duck'. Loh Duck is specially cook in herbs ingredient in a big pot and this dish is famous in Johor.
  • This shop is at the Red Square, Melaka Raya.....
  • Quite expensive for 5 people to eat.... RM 30.


Melaka Dim Sum, at Jln Tengkera!

  • I still can remember the first time when yve brought me to eat dim sum at Melaka, it was 5 yrs ago...dat time is to introduce me to yve family (pak toh stage) .... hahaha.
  • I ordered quite a lot....and was shock when the tauke told me is RM 11.50 for 2 pax! I stun....I was so full and hardly can move. Per plate is just RM 1.10 .... if in KL, it easily go above RM 40. The current price for a dim sum plate is RM 1.40 - RM 1.60....
  • Then I brought my friends and even my family to Melaka for dim sum ....they love it so much...I remember that time yve colleagues from Japan n Korea...bout 10 pax...the bill came up just RM 70+ .... all was amazed only.
  • The famous dim sum there is their BIG PAO! .... trust me, ppl were queing up and snatching the big pao...u can see every second, ppl tao pao 5-10 big paos and the kitchen staff keep on bringing out the big pao tray ... this scene is worse than ppl buying JCO Donaught at Pavillion Mall.
  • I must admit their big pao is very nice and yummy! Oh yeah...less than RM 2 sumore!

  • Had bak kut teh for lunch but I did not take pics from my handphone camera cause I was too busy eating the dry bak kut teh....first dry bak kut teh in Melaka....u can see ppl eager to try this.

Project Meeting - Tense moment
  • I think everyone is under pressure and their temparent can self destruct just like that.
  • As normal, we had our project progress meeting with the vendor. When the vendor fail to deliver some portion, of course there will be lots of Q & A. But this vendor PM was super lousy....trust me, no quality...u see his face also u feel like shooting with AK-47.
  • I am feeling under pressure as well.....one project plan to cut over on 21st April and the other one on 29th April.
U Mobile expects good response to 3G post-paid service

Third generation (3G) service provider U Mobile Sdn Bhd expects strong take-up for its newest post-paid offering dubbed the U38 Plan. Chief executive officer Yun Hae Jong said the RM38 per month post-paid plan would attract 3G users due to its pricing, believed to be the lowest commitment fee plan in the market at present.

“The U38 Plan is aimed at new 3G users who want an uncomplicated, affordable performance-driven post-paid plan with all the essentials thrown in,” Yun said after the launch of the new package yesterday.He said typical users of the U38 Plan would be highly mobile individuals who were discovering growing dependency on a mobile service with a primary broadband functionality.

“That is why we've bundled our high-speed mobile Internet service together with this innovative plan,” Yun said, adding that the company planned to introduce its pre-paid service in June. The company would aggressively expand its network coverage over the next few years, he said, adding that the capital expenditure for the network expansion activities would be “several hundred million US dollars.” Key features of the U38 Plan include video calls at the same rate as voice calls, no contractual period and free U Mobile broadband for two months.

The new plan will be available via the company's flagship store at Berjaya Times Square and selected mobile phone dealers and distributors throughout the Klang Valley starting Friday. Meanwhile, U Mobile deputy chairman Datuk Rosman Ridzwan said the joint 33% acquisition by Japan's NTT DoCoMo and South Korea's KT Freetel (KTF) in the company for US$200mil had been completed.

“Now, in addition to the pool of dedicated local talents driving the company forward, we have a team of equally energetic and capable talents from DoCoMo and KTF,” he said, adding that 2008 would be an important year for the company as it was now well positioned to introduce innovative products and services for the Malaysian market.

My Injury condition + Blood Pressure back to normal!

Day 1 of my injury status

  • 14th April, was in pain when trying to sleep. Show my injury to Yve and she was shock.
  • Did sms Daniel before going to bed, in case i woke up tomorrow and my eye vision is blurr, need him to fetch me to work.
  • At 6am, woke up and sms to Daniel and told him that I will drive myself to work cause I want to sleep more. Slept quite late last night...bout 3am.
Day 2 of my injury status
  • 15th April, woke up morning....my vision is ok except my left eye still in pain and watery.
  • Went to office, my colleagues saw my face .... from there, they making fun of me....sigh, my wonderful colleagues. Got even one mention, wat a good love bite at my nose!
  • 4pm...after my meeting, went to see doctor for check-up. Doctor check my cornea and 'puper' ... i heard is petpet ... no damage, just can see my blood vain burst a bit. That's why causes the eye tears flowing out.
  • Show the doctor the broken racquet picture which smack to my nose and eyes. She was shock to see the picture as she thought is just a normal injury.
  • I really feel uncomfortable with my eyes now. Imagine like a dirt when into to your eyes and you keep on rubbing to it. Problem, even i try to rub to reduce the itchiness....it is too painful. Compare with my nose, at least I don't laugh or jump....i don't feel the pain or uncomfortability.

Day 3 of my injury condition

  • Feeling much better esp on my eyes....but within this few days...can feel the swollen pain and very obvious now.
  • Drive to work and the sunlight today is quite bright.....still not able to open my left eye fully.

Blood Pressure back to normal FINALLY!

  • Despite my injury, this is the happiest news i got from the doctor during my injury check-up.
  • She saw my previous visit which is 4 months ago .... saw that there is remarks of my blood pressure is quite high ... bout 101.
  • So she did a blood pressure test on me and guess what, hmmm, it seems my blood pressure is normal at 80 .... wow! So i ask what is the ideal level of blood pressure...the doc replied bout 75 to 80.
  • When reach office, straight email to Yve to tell her this news.
    Real Story:-
  • I've been fighting to reduce my high blood pressure since 20 months ago, it's been at alarming level. I did exercise by going to fitness first for few months and control my eating. But it just reduce a bit but still at alarming level (90-98).
  • Then Fui Ling introduce me a tea early this year.....I took it for 3 months till now....I have my regular buffet lunch and dinner, mamak or sometimes cook maggi mee at night before sleep and just eat as normal.
  • I did not do any diet at all while drinking this tea. After 3 months, this is the result I got. I manage to reduce my weight to 84kg from 92kg with my height of 173cm...obviously I am a 'obbis'....

Need time to rest...

My dear friends and bloggers,

Sorry that I not able to visit each of your blog site and reply/comment due to my recent injury I sustain last night. My eyes need to rest at the moment and my nose need to heal as well.

My nose broke the racquet NOT the racquet broke my nose

I am in Pain now...

  • I rephrase it again, is not the racquet broke my nose BUT my nose broke the racquet. Amazing rite! I myself can't believe it.
  • Last night, playing at Puay Chai school at SS2....this is what I can remember only.
  • Me and my partner was chasing for the shuttle at the baseline....the moment we try to hit....i know my face been whack by my partner racquet.
  • Immediately, I drop my racquet and cover my face with my both hand...and in pain shock. I did not shout and scream ....I just stood there, bending my head down.
  • What I can remember was I saw total black for few seconds, then after that, i can hear my friends voice around me asking my condition and to sit down and lie down.
  • I felt the pain at my eyes and my nose and my right thumb.
  • After a minute, took off my hand from my face....then saw blood at my hands....my friend told me that is was bleeding from my nose cut .... then i asked, my eyes got bleed a not? Luckily did not bleed from my eyes. I feel happy that I able to see.
  • The player who hit me, keep on apologizing to me and I told him is alright, this is just an accident.
  • Drove back home with a single eye close. Tears just keep pouring down like a crying baby.

Olympus Digital Camera + EA Form out

Olympus Digital Camera - u1030SW
  • Was planning to get one small and compact digital camera to bring around for functions.
  • Since my last Canon IXUS which got stolen from my previous house break-in... then got myself a Canon S3 IS. It is bulky a bit but with good image quality and shooting mode.
  • But it is troublesome to bring to events and gatherings. With a slimmer and smaller digital camera, I at least able to put at my pocket.
  • Today went to KLCC camera shop but this model havent arrive yet. Anyway, did call up Key Colors and the best price they can give is RM 1349 with free 2GB memory card.
  • Yesterday was telling Yve that I want to buy a new camera but my suggestion got REJECTED from Finance Minister....sigh....
  • I am still comparing with other model than this especially Canon Ixus. Need people feedback and advice on this.
  • Review: Adventure is yours for the taking with the µ1030 SW. Waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof and crushproof, this camera goes wherever you do. Yet despite its tough attributes, image quality isn’t compromised. Precision Olympus optics deliver true-to-life results. Integrated cutting-edge technologies provide intelligent solutions to ensure the flawless reproduction of subjects. And, with a choice of several colours, the µ1030 SW further brightens the photo-taking experience.

Why suicide? Not end of the world if in debt

My Casino Experience
  • Those who knows me well, they know I am a big gambler last time....my two devil horns will reveal out. I can say I am a gamble addict last time when young and love to take high risk for fast return.
  • I remembered the first time I went to Genting casino was after my college graduation...age of 19. Everyone says, first timer is always lucky. Yes, I won hundreds for my first attempt.
  • I got even much greedier after I started working. Will visit to "Uncle Lim" once or twice in a month to fatt choi. My bonus will splash in the casino. Even i did swipe my credit card to take out cash to gamble when I am losing. Overall lose a lot - over 20k or more i think...lost count liow.
  • My largest single bet was BIG SMALL table...RM2k at one go. Put my money at BIG ... fxck, it opened up SMALL... I lost RM2k in less than a minute, probably less than 40 secs. I was stunt but afterall I did not feel sad and I left the casino.
  • Then got even worse when I paktoh dat time (now my wife) ... she even banned me to go Genting Casino till now. Been a few years I did not visit casino till now.
  • Luckily i spent my money into stock investment, a very wise decision and till now, I find stock investment is much better than casino gambling ... . If u lose money in stock market, consider paper loss, at least u can hold it. But in casino, u lose instantly!. people, think smartly!!!
  • The worst is borrow money from Ah Long in the casino.... this is a death invitation to yourself. You will see this Ah Long sitting at the jackpot machine at a corner with 2 ppl beside him. He will show off few bunch of RM50 notes.
  • SUMMARY: I LEARNT MY LESSON VERY WELL. THERE IS NO SHORTCUT TO GAIN MONEY FAST. IT TOOK ME 3 DAMN BLOODY YEARS TO CLEAR OFF MY CREDIT CARD DEBT (age 20-23). NOW I TURN TO SMALL GAMBLER WHERE I WAS ALLOWED BY MY WIFE TO GAMBLE DURING CNY only.

The Greatest Gambling ever comeback I've witness

  • One of yve friend invited us to stay a night at Genting hotel cause the brother change some chips and got hotel free night stay to gamble....I think RM3k+ for a room stay. This package is mainly for gamblers.
  • We watch yve friend brother play .... ok, guess wat....that night he loss over RM 18k.
  • And early in the morning, he went to casino by himself .... he won back RM 16k. Walaneh....losing 2k better than losing 18k rite....
Attempt Suicide at Genting Highlands
Wednesday April 9, 2008, Source: The Star news

PETALING JAYA: Deep in debt to loan sharks, a man jumped out of a Genting Highlands hotel restaurant window to his death. Well, not to his death. He crashed through the rooftop of the Genting Skyway station and landed on the safety net under the cable car system.

The man, identified as Lai, was seen kicking open the window of a restaurant at Highland Hotel before jumping out at 9am yesterday. Failed attempt: Rescuers trying to persuade Lai to give up his suicide bid. Lai jumped out of a restaurant but landed on the Genting Skyway safety net. Stopped by the net, he sat on its edge for five hours, halting the cable car service and forcing all passengers to be transported to the lower station by bus and the Awana Skyway. From 9.30am, firemen tried to coax him down and even offered him fried chicken, said a witness who declined to be identified.

“Later, he called his father and told him he was going to die today before switching off the phone,” the witness said. Rescue effort: A rescuer offering Lai a cigarette as he tries to talk him out of committing suicide. Lai finally relented at about 3pm. About five hours later, firemen persuaded him to give up his death wish and police escorted him to the Kuala Kubu Baru Hospital at 3pm.

1.4KG Fish Head cost RM 420! @ Gohtong Jaya

How True Is It?
  • Bet someone of you all will receive this forwarded email to beware of this slaughtering restaurant.
  • This is the story of the person who got slaughtered!.....read it...
  • Dear All............Last week, I brought my guests to Genting Highlands. After a day 'above the clouds', we decided to have dinner at the Gohtong Jaya area on the way down.We ordered some dishes and decided to have a steamed fish as well. So the captain recommended 'sultan fish'. The steamed fish came. HALF, and plain steamed. Good & fine.But when the bill came, it came to over $500! We were shocked! We were told the fish was 1.4kg (& please bear in mind, its ONLY HALF A FISH) at RM320 per Kg! RM420! This was daylight robbery. We were not informed by the Captain that a Kg of the Sultan fish would cost us RM320 and there was also no signs of such pricings anywhere in the restaurant.When we checked with the cashier, she told us, its correct! Of cos, it was our mistake for not asking the price first. Anyway, on the way back to KL, we stopped at Unique Seafood, PJ, where one can choose a live fish. The most expensive Soon Hock swimming in the tank is RM135 per kilo. Asked them about the Sultan fish, it is going for RM100 a kilo.Will be sending this letter to the newspapers, Tourism board, etc; and friends, pls pass on to all on yr email list.CHEATED.


My Experience - Bak Kut Teh
  • Last few months ago, after casino, we went to Gohtong Jaya for lunch. We stop by at this proclaim Klang Bak Kut Teh.

Shock confession of maths prodigy who turned to life of vice

Shocking Confession...

Sufiah decided to CONFESS ALL after we revealed how the former child prodigy was working as a £130-an-hour prostitute while studying for a masters in economics. It is the latest heartbreaking twist to a life that seemed so full of promise—but went tragically wrong when she cracked under the pressure of her bullying father's cruel academic regime and fled university at 15.

Eight years on, he is now in jail for sexually assaulting two girl pupils and Sufiah has somehow convinced herself that her seedy new career is the answer to all her problems. "People think escorting is sleazy and terrible but I don't see it like that," she says. "I've always had a high sex drive—and now I'm getting all the sex I want—and guys are much better in bed with an escort than a girlfriend.

"I have men who are thrilled about my passion for mathematics. In fact one made me recite equations while he pleasured me, then I gave him oral sex while he chatted about algebra. It drove him wild." And brainbox Sufiah has worked out that subtracting your respectability to become a prostitute can equal big money.

Peeling "I have a nice life and I am in control," she says. "I hate this stereotype society has of escorts being exploited. It is so far from the truth. "My clients treat me like a princess. One guy I see in London took me shopping on Bond Street. He bought me a beautiful black Gucci dress for £700 and then took me to Selfridges and told me to pick any handbag I liked."

She chose a £600 Gucci clutch. "I'm a Primark and Topshop girl normally! I felt like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. "Later that night we went for dinner. I wore my Gucci dress and sexy lingerie and took great pleasure in peeling it off for him later on back at his hotel." Sufiah was working as an administrative assistant earning £ 16,000 a year in Manchester when an escort agency boss approached her in a bar four months ago. She'd run up debts of £3,500 in rent arrears and credit cards.

And she was still haunted by her hellish childhood—subjected to her father Farooq's Accelerated Learning Technique where she studied maths day in day out in rooms kept freezing cold to improve her concentration. So the big rewards the agency boss promised seemed more than tempting. "I have studied so intensely for so many years I wanted to have fun," she says.
She can't see the sordid side of prostitution—and instead likens herself to Belle De Jour—the saucy hooker played by Billie Piper in the TV drama. "I'd read Belle De Jour's Diary of a London Call Girl and was fascinated," she said. "When this immaculate lady in a designer suit asked if I had ever considered escorting, I found it appealing.

"I went home, researched agencies on the internet and found one I thought looked professional. I sent them photographs and they put me on their site." A couple of days later Sufiah was offered her first client. She recalls: "I felt quite nervous but excited too. I slipped on some black lace underwear and stockings and suspenders and a dress, and just though, ‘Wow, this is thrilling.' "He was waiting for me at the bar of the Hilton. I expected him to be older but when I saw him he was lovely.

"He was only in his late 20s, tall and handsome. I thought, ‘I can't believe I'm getting paid to have sex with this man.' "I'd have been thrilled if he chatted me up in a bar. We had a drink then went upstairs to his room and had fantastic sex. I left that night feeling totally elated having had an amazing time with £250 in my purse." Since then, she has built up a base of regular rich clients and sees between five and ten men each week. Her sugar daddies have treated her to fabulous clothes, designer bags, trips on yachts and even helicopter rides.

Sufiah, whose interview can be seen on video at notw.co.uk, brags that she can earn more than £1,000 in a night by having diner with a client and staying over. "It's like they want to rescue me. One man asked me how much I earned a year. I said £60,000. He told me, ‘I'll pay that amount straight into your bank and buy you a flat and you can be my mistress.'

"But I don't want that because I'm happy doing what I do. Now I wonder if I could go back to a normal relationship, where you watch EastEnders and have boring sex. I've got used to being treated like a princess." It is as if she has run away from reality—just as she ran away from university and her father's dominance at 15.

Sufiah becomes solemn and subdued when she talks of her upbringing. "As I grew older I began to clash with my father," she says. "He was violent on occasions. Because he pushed me so far academically, I became more confident for a girl of my age. I grew up too quickly. "From 11, I was studying maths all the time. I didn't have any friends. I wasn't in the Brownies. My father said they didn't teach Muslim values. I hardly ever played with other children."

She passed her maths A level aged 12 and started at St Hilda's College, Oxford. "It was an amazing place but I was too young. By the time I was 15 I wanted to be in control of my life. I fought back." Sufiah sparked a two week nationwide police hunt when she ran away instead of going home at the end of term, saying she'd "had enough of 15 years of physical and emotional abuse". Her father claimed she had been kidnapped and brainwashed by members of a socialist organisation.

But now, speaking about it for the first time, Sufiah says: "I couldn't bear the thought of going home so I ran away. I'd saved up £200 and found a hostel in London for £14 per night. After a week I moved to a hostel in Bournemouth. I knew I could survive on my own." When she was found in an internet cafe, Sufiah refused to go home and was placed in foster care by Bournemouth social services. She says: "I stayed with two families who were very good to me. My mum and dad would call me and ask me to go home—but I didn't want to."

Rich

Her 50-year-old father is now in jail for 18 months after being convicted of sexually assaulting two 15-year-old girls he taught at his home in Coventry. When Sufiah reached 18 she returned to Oxford to continue her studies—and fell in love with fellow student Jonathan Marshall. They married a year later but it barely lasted a year.

"At the time I thought we would be together forever, but we married too young and grew apart," she says. After the split she moved back to London where she taught maths in the evenings to make ends meet. Then six months ago she moved to Manchester—and stumbled across her new career. "I'm still only young and I can't decide what I want to do," she says. "My escort work provides me with a fabulous life.

"I still enjoy learning and I find it puts me in the right frame of mind for an intelligent conversation with my clients." But she admits not all her sexual encounters work out. "At the end of the day you don't have to sleep with a client if you don't want to. I've done that twice now. Both men were young and very nervous. I just left. "The dullest client I've ever had was a rich man who talked about cars all night. It was really, really boring."

Sufiah is well aware she could easily find a job in the City where she could match her £60,000 a year sex earnings. But she said: "I don't want to take anything away from people who do jobs like that but it's not for me. I have a nice life. I don't want for anything." Her mother Halimahton is now divorcing jailed Farooq and is desperate for her daughter to get in touch with her. "I was shaking when I found out what had become of her," she says.

But talking about her bitter split with her parents, Sufiah says: "I would describe our relationship as estranged. "I have contact with them occasionally but I couldn't speculate on what they will make of my new life. "I don't have any regrets. I've never felt more confident about my body and I've had some of the best sex of my life."
