Saturday fun time learning English...

I just came back from my relative's place after a full moon dinner..
I was writing and came across the word 'rhythms'. I wasn't sure of the spelling, so I checked it out and noticed that they have no vowel letters.. So, being free, I try to trigger more words that has no vowel letters in it..

Rhythms, try, why, hymn, myth, shy, cry, my, cysts, lymph, fly.

And did you noticed that all the words above has 'y' in it?

hehe.. now I'm trying hard to get a word -vowel -y
dr. tv. ms. mrs. mr. hmm. grrrrr. still can't think of any.

So, I seeked refuge from the Internet.. and it's getting more fun learning that 'y' is a vowel when it sounds like a long 'i'. People are debating on whether the letter 'y' is a vowel or a consonant. Some says 'y' is only used as a vowel when no main vowel exists in the word.

So, all the words I've mentioned above are thus, consider as words with vowels?!?

You have any idea? Are there any real English words that has no vowels?
CRYPT .. dang.

I did not get to take a picture of this, but it was on The Star, 1st June '08. I ‘printscreen’ it.. :)

Then, we head over to LowYat Plaza around 6+pm to purchase network card. It was pretty jam that day at Bintang area. I got a DLink network card for Rm18 at All IT Hypermarket. On the way back, we stop for a while to watch the World Cyber Games held outside LowYat Plaza. There was a PC football game going on between two participants. They were on stage and there's a big screen showing the game. They even have a few rows for spectators to watch the footie. Wernn said it was more exciting than the real footie. I have to agree. The footie game was fast and interesting. We got back to our car within an hour and head home for dinner with parents. We had our steamboat dinner at our old place, Hoong Kee's Steamboat.

Later, we head over to Coco Banana, Sunway Pyramid, meeting up with my colleagues and Kenji. It was a great night, it's been a long time since we had a night out drinking session. Headed home around 2am and it's time for a good rest after a long day.
