what lies ahead...



My life is documented here. Regardless of who you are, my family, friends or someone who just chances upon this wasteland, I extend my warmest invitation. Welcome, good folks!

A backdated entry.

2008-10-27T17:19:13.465+08:00

I have finally moved to KL, which will be my second home for years to come. Flat hunting was indeed a grueling proces and I am just glad that it's all done. The location is convenient - just a short walking distance from the LRT station. I am still adjusting to the new environment and haven't been sleeping too well. Contrary to popular believe that I can sleep anywhere and anytime, I feel that I need some time to adapt. I think the place is not bad though. It is tranquil and has nice landscaping. The security, while not state-of the art, seems rather tight. What follows is a virtual tour of my flat, Eric-style, save taken using my crappy 2 megapixel v3x.Taken from the LRT station, just a stone's throw awayMy unit is located at the 20th floorOne of the poolsJaccuziSo-called saltwater poolWardrobe needs to be filled up moreI need bigger table!So that's about it! I have uploaded more pictures to my facebook album too.[...]



This Wednesday

2008-07-13T16:46:17.823+08:00

I have RSVPed for the CFA information session on Wednesday 6.30pm. According to the agenda, it will end at around 8.30pm.

(image)

Then yesterday, I found out about this:(image)

Yoga Lin's autograph session on the same day at 7.30pm in Sg. Wang. Yoga is the winner of One Million Star season 1 that I have been watching on crunchyroll. He will be performing a few songs so it will be an opportunity to catch him live.

The locations are close to each other too!




Whoaa, 2 posts in a day

2008-06-28T21:17:16.836+08:00

Some personal record here :D

(object) (embed)


I like this song Xing Bu Liao Qing sung by Yang Zhong Wei in the season 1 of One Million Star Taiwan. I have been watching the show on Crunchyroll. It had such a high standard and this guy was one of the favourites. He left the competition early after confessing that he was lying about his age. Still, his career took off from there.

EDIT: Thanks to Little Goat who pointed out that what I'm watching happens to be the first season, not the second!



Lest we forget

2008-06-22T07:07:57.814+08:00

Finally my Streamyx is back! After not being able to online for more than 24 hours, I finally called the customer service. I thought no one would entertain me since it's Saturday, but a technician named Michael was there to assist me. Before looking at the problem, they needed some account info (like my father's IC no.) for verification purposes which I wasn't able to provide at that time. Still, Michael troubleshooted the problem and in the end, I my connection was fixed. For that, I am very grateful. Kudos to Streamyx customer service!

Now it's probably very rare for you to hear praises about TM Net customer service, but Michael was very polite and professional - what every staff at customer service should be. It's unfortunate that not everyone is like him, judging by the number negative things being said about it over the internet. But perhaps, what's even more unfortunate is people who have not experienced TM Net's customer service first-hand may also discredit them because angry complaints abound (herd mentality).

It's also strange that so far, I have had many pleasant experiences when dealing with government officials: the people's favourite source of complaints. About a month ago, on the way back from our hiking session, Sushin and I were stopped by a policeman. It turned out that we beat the red light (another story another blog post). However, the policeman pakcik was very friendly and clearly wasn't looking for any bribe. We were happy although we got the ticket.

I also generally experience good service from the people at JPA or the Public Service Department of Malaysia. During my first two years in Sydney I lucky enough to have Encik Zainal as the consul. He had helped me though various times, more than he needed to. For me and many others, he was our guardian when we were left to fend for ourselves in a foreign land.

Strange isn't it? There really shouldn't be any good and dedicated souls, especially in the government. Fact is: there are.

Although I have thanked them profusely in real life, I would like to again thank them for being who they are, and sometimes saving me from a sticky situation. Oh, and many thanks to my neighbour (although I don't know who you are) who 'lent' me the internet to google for the customer service number :P

New banner!

2008-06-04T08:34:41.841+08:00

Featuring Nissan Fairlady...the new banner reflects my recent craze for Initial D. Everyone -whether you like cars or not -should seriously watch it.

This is so ironic since I don't update my blog often. But what the hell :D Made using photoshop 7! (soo outdated)



Second to none

2008-03-26T20:39:28.332+08:00

that's four syllables
how uneconomical
considering the more humble alternative
consists only of one syllable.

so which redundant word/expression gets to you the most?

But God, I hope this is true. It would be reassuring to know I made the right decision and that management may really be suitable for me. Oh look, investment banker is one of the options too!

Looks like someone has not given up on me

2007-10-12T23:39:31.665+08:00

How's my favourite fellas? I guess no one will really come here anyway after the long silence, so I don't really know what to feel when CY gave me something that was chiak pa boh su zor. Keke! Anyway, here goes.5 things in my bag:I don't really carry a bag to anywhere except maybe for gym. I know! Such an anticlimax, but oh well.5 things in my head:This actually reminds me of a blonde joke Alexi told back in RMC. It goes something like this: A red-hair, a brunette, and a blonde were facing God. They had to speak in front of a mirror which was able to detect any lies told, and if it did detect a lie, the person would vanish in a puff of smoke.So the red-hair went first. She said ,"I think I am beautiful." Poof! And that was the last of her.When it comes to the brunette's turn, she said, "I think I am hot." Poof! She met the same fate as the red-hair.It's finally the blonde's turn and she said with confidence, "I think...." Poof! and she met her smoky end. LOL!All the new animes screening in Fall 2007- which one to watch? As usual, this season offers a whole range of genres, from yuri to horror. I am eyeing on Clannnad, KyoAni's only offering for this season. Also previewed a few slice-of-life animes and expectation is high on the esteemed studio. A good harem or slice-of-life anime always makes my day. Which reminds me:The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya will have a season 2! Wohoo! Let's all rejoice like Konata! Moving on..A British comedy I just watched, called Hot Fuzz. Recommended to those who need a good laugh.There is an ACCG353 test sometime next week. Not sure when, so gotta check.Econ335 test I just sat for a few hours ago. It sucked, but I don't have to lay my hands on microfinance again.5 words I frequently use:pleasethank youbitchhawtdude among other things...5 recent smses receivedFrom Carol, who I havent met for awhile. It's funny cuz I have been thinking of calling her, but this morning she sms'ed me instead. Haha!Also from Carol.from Alicia, about going to gym at 7.30 and reminder to sleep early. Haha, thx.also from Alicia, about something random.from Yeelin ,about dinner.5 recent things I just did:Sat for Econ 335 test.Went to Chong Wen's. Stayed there watching Chong Wen and Victor playing God of Wars challenge and ate there.Went to Macquarie Centre just for the sake of going there - the result of being housebound for days.Printed my notes.Went to Trafalgar Pharmacy across the street for lozenges. and a lot of sleeps in between. Haha. Sick eh su...5 things in my wardrobe:I have a big wardrobe, so this is the place most of my stuff ends up in.Clothes, like duh!Part of my skincare productsHair productsA stack of magazinesMiscellaneous - linens, extra towels, Home Brand toilet paper, medicines, coin storage, shopping bags from buying clothes (recycle, recycle, recycle)5 things i just ate:Chicken sandwich from Cheeky Salad.

could've, should've, would've

2007-02-03T05:19:52.562+08:00

New year, new start. That's what they say. Maybe those are just words used by optimists to reassure, to attempt not to look back and to just forget what a crappy year it has been. Is it even possible for a change to happen overnight, just like that? What the hell.

Well, the mantra is definitely working for me. Moving into the new (in every sense of the word) apartment just gives me that fresh air that makes me think this year's gonna be so awesome. Summer school is just boring though- 6 hours of class on Tuesdays and Fridays. Same subject, same lecturer throughout. Every lecture is a cycle of : I look at the lecturer - the lecturer looks at me - I look away - I accidentally look at the PRC who looks like Ugly Betty dressing up as a zebra - puke and puke - look back at the lecturer, now talking about his girlfriend.

The only consolation, it seems, is to look forward to retiring at my brandspanking new pad. Lounging on the couch, with the TV remote control in one hand and a bag of chips/hearty homecooked meal in another just makes that grueling day earlier more bearable. Not to forget the warm shower in its full high-pressured splendour (unlike the showers in RMC which streams out in trickles, pressure comparable to the pee coming out of a very very sore urinary organ). Or the healing mattress with pillow firm, but fluffy. Or the...

Haha. Bear with me. While it's true that I enjoy staying here, I have a few regrets as well for coming back a little early. People that I should have met or spend more of my time with. Places that I should have gone, events I should have attended, FOOD that should have been eaten! And a purely evil few person whom I call a friend (you know who you are!) who constantly boasts about all the great time I have missed ( "hey, i went to this this event!! and i met xxxx!! oh damn fun lor, you should have come. padan muka go back so early") just aggravates the feeling.

chaaoo*&O@*^R%$!!!!

on another note, this is slightly overdue but as we all know Step into my World/ Storyblog/ Anything and Everything has officially been closed by its owner. It was certainly fun while it lasted and its demise is indeed a loss to the blogging world. As a tribute, the link will still stay, marked by an honorary tombstone. Together, they will serve as physical reminders of what once were.



i notice i dont have many food pictures

2006-12-07T03:13:11.206+08:00





from left to right: RMC chicken cordon bleu; some desert with mint sauce; FNL curry laksa; Musashi's bento box (forgot to rotate); chinese food (forgot their name, but hell cares); seafood gourmet pizza; assortment of fishballs; self-prepared steamboat ingredient (hence the tacky decoration); Makoto's beef udon; sea urchin sushi; satay; kangkung belacan and curry; Devil' Delight; some desert from Shangri La Sydney; hotpot bibimbab; Sydney Fish Market's harvest.

and I can't even swallow porridge now

sucks sucks sucks sucks

things that dont serve any purpose like wisdom tooth should not exist.



Of Peking duck and MUV

2008-03-04T05:43:14.100+08:00

No, it has nothing to do with Viewtru's newly completed, newfangled, highly controversial wuxia epic which I have been reading. KekekeIt's time to pack up! Boxes suddenly become so precious, especially good quality big ones from Woolworths. I heard Franklin's have better ones, will scout the place soon enough. I have become the official box hunter, a title conferred to me by a friend. Anyways...These few days post-exam were actually hectic! Kekeek! Went out with some fabulous people (read: my friends) and eat really really good food. Well, this is actually a usual thing after exam every semester, but each time has its moments.Today, I went with 3 other fabulous people to eat Peking duck! This is particularly interesting because I have never eaten this famous duck dish before, even though I have learnt of its existence a few millennia back. We went to Eastwood Garden Peking Restaurant (I think, cant remember the order of the names) which is famous for this dish. At first, we were sitting there in the VIP room wating for a particular fabulous person who was fabulously late for the occasion. But it was well worth it, cuz it was damn good. Strongly recommended, even if you are not a fan of duck ( in this case, I am like you).For the uninitiated, Peking duck is not your average roast duck. A special breed of duck is reared in a special way for this purpose. A typical Peking duck dish is eaten in two days. Firstly, the skin with some thin later of meat is carved out of the whole roast duck, into several pieces. The snap-happy me took the picture while our private waitress was deftly carving the roast duck.The crispy pieces of duck skin is then served on a plate, but hold on - it's not ready to be eaten yet (but I really don't mind eating only the skin, cuz it smells so good, kekeke!) It is then wrapped with a thin bread of the size of a saucer, together with spring onion and cucumber. Roll it up, and it's ready to be eaten. Good stuff.Then, the remaining roast duck was brought back to the kitchen to be stir-fried into a dish of our choice.Enough about Peking duck :DI will be moving out of my current accommodation, Robert Menzies College to the new phase of Macquarie University Village. Not only it is more affordable, it is also more luxurious. Because it is damn new, I will be the first to rasmikan my room, how good is that. Here's a sneak peak.So compared to my current 30-year-old college, MUV will win hands down as far as physical appearance is concerned. Furthermore, I will have a private bathroom, which means no more the frustration of having to share bathroom with more than 10 other people of the same floor. To be honest, I find sharing bathroom is no big deal at all but the irritation comes when someone uses the tap or flushes or comes into shower when I am showering, thereby disrupting my hot-cold water equilibrium.Plus, college food in RMC is a term that is known to make people shudder and insinuate nausea at times. Well, farewell rice and chicken ("rice and chicken" being the popular euphemism to the mundaneness and tastelessness of college food)!Damn, I look forward to staying at the new place, can't wait.[...]



words of wisdom

2006-09-18T18:15:11.076+08:00

Most of you probably don't realise but I am, in fact, quite philosophical. I think about life when I am having breakfast. While enjoying my scambled eggs today, it got me thinking.

Naturally, humans are made to do things which we enjoy doing. For example, humans need to eat, right? And we enjoy eating. Some goes to sleeping, which I find to be the greatest blessing. Likewise, shitting and peeing. The healing relief after discharging the pent-up waste is beyond words. Sex, too ( I think so la, can ask CY). Let's extrapolate...

Beats me why I have to study??



Salam merdeka

2006-09-01T06:04:03.510+08:00

Yesderday was our big day, wohoo! Such big occasion should be rightfully commemorated by a merdeka post. I started the big day yesterday by blasting Sudirman's 31 Ogos 1957 at midnight, intending to stop only if the Dean come knocking on my door. But my neighbour, especially the one(s) above has been mysteriosly tolerant this semester, incomparison to the last semester. Oh, i am not complaining. When I woke up the next morning - actually it is already afternoon - in a truly Malaysian fashion, I just whiled away the public holiday which doesnt come often, with Sudirman still playing at the background.

A lot of people have posted a merdeka blog. Hsuiyoong has and the ambiance is immidaitely felt upon entering her blog. Keke! Beats me why Eric has not. Of course, I am not saying we should post something to honour merdeka, that would be silly. But I am proud of Malaysia and I wanna show it here!

49 years..we have indeed come a long way. Next year will be our Golden Anniversary, doesnt that sound imposing? Hahaha. If you are not proud then you are should be a retard. I know some smart aleck would be like "ohh, it is not a time for celebrating, there are so many weakneess in the country!". And there are some who just hate the country to the bone -"unfair treatment!" - because they failed in university application or denied a schorlarship. Sad, really. I feel sorry for this folks, but if they can just stop complaining perhaps they are able to see our country in different light. Plus there are those who relish on defaming his/her own country to foreigners by spreading all kinds of racist slurs and bullcrap. In all honestly, I don't count myself to be a patriotic person but some humans are utterly unbelievable. Hope I don't insult anyone because I know my friends are all proud to be Malaysians! Keke!

Have a nice day everyone.



National Geographic, everybody

Eric made a post on this bird before. Today, I again stumbled across an article on this dimunitive creature in wikipedia.

(image)

"The Superb Fairy-wren (Malurus cyaneus) is the best-known of all fairy-wrens, and in south-eastern Australia is frequently known simply as the blue wren. Superb Fairy-wrens occupy wide range of habitat types, and are found in almost any area that has at least a little dense undergrowth for them to shelter in, including grasslands with scattered shrubs, moderately thick forest, woodland, heaths, and domestic gardens." [more]

-Wikipedia


Gee, i never know this birdie has such a glamourous name. My friends and I (to be specific CQ and I) just conveniently call it "bot chiao" for the simple reason that it resembles a 'bot'. Well, if u don't know what it means, ask any cool Hokkien people.

We didnt mean to be perverted. In fact, we are people with impeccable manners, thus will not relegate ourselves by saying something totally meaningless. We have our reasons..

"It is notable that fairy-wrens are socially monogamous and sexually promiscious: pairs will bond for a long time, but mate with other individuals. Young are often raised not by the pair alone, but with other males who also mated with the pair's female assisting."

That's all for today. I am glad to carry out the noble task of educating you folks. Blogs out.

an easter break post

2006-04-21T05:17:24.883+08:00

:In a little more than a week's time, Easter break will come to an end, classes resume and so ensue the unexciting life that (almost) all uni students experience. But if there is one thing I love about Macquarie, it will definitely be this long, two-week break.

So far, I have been hostel-bound, entertaining myself with various trivial activities, nothing special but it's all good. Holiday is the time when I can vegetate without that pang of guilt. Hehehe. Steve, the Sydneysider-turned-Canberra countryboy came back for a few days and entralled us with stories such as how the idea of having FUN in Canberra can be associated with sitting at Starbucks with friends. Hmm, not bad...very peaceful, living with simple folks with simple needs. More spare time to patt toh. Kekeke!
I have also been looking for info about World Vision's sponsor a child programme, but what I have gathered so far only raise more doubts. The website is not very detail at telling how they actually use the funds, just some dandy idealistic statement how child will receive better health care, education, etc. I want to know 'HOW' they use the funds to achieve these goals. It also strikes me that they are (this is argruable) much better and sincere channels for charity. For World Vision, you just pay 39 a month. That's it. Easy. No further effort needed and you find contentment in believing that the child now is in a much happier state and you have done a good deed. It's like a shortcut to charity. I believe true charity can only be regarded when one, guided by a sense of empathy, selflessly go all his way to assist the less fortunate. Some form of self-sacrifice is involved here, and that includes more than forking out some moolah.

Shit, everybody goes to Goldcoast for holiday, leaving me to fend for myself at RMC and also leaving me with no kaki to go paintballing. Sucks.

To Tailou: Thx for the books! Received them (finally). I am more than a quater thru Ugly Americans...a damn good read! Will start on From Day One when I feel inspirational. Hahaha!



Finally, a post

2006-03-09T23:20:42.246+08:00

I wonder how long I have neglected this place. Judging by the contents of the chatterox, suffice to say it is a long time indeed. Part of the reasons is my interest in this whole blog thing just dissipated. But what's the use of opening a shop when u have no good for sale, I thought. I am slightly astonished when I see you good people actually come to this wasteland although it was left to decompose. Hehe, many thanks!

Another reason I don't update (haha, I am giving excuses, but really one ok!) is there is really NOTHING intesting to tell. To be fiar, there are a lot of turbulances these few months but I have decided from the start that this blog is not for me to rave and rant, and I intend to keep it that way.

The new semester started about two weeks ago, and it is the time again when new bunch of people come in, replacing the ones who left. This time around, there are a lot more Asians, especially Japanese and Korean. While it is refreshing to see new faces around, it is somehow a regret that everyone you meet are just like passing ships that u know only for a semester or two, if u are lucky. The whole process of meeting new people, getting to know them, and forging new friendship can be daunting after a while. Steve has left as well and he is having heaps of fun at Canberra, can you believe it? Man, I am in Sydney and I am beginging to fell that this semester will be boring! I have been such an optimist all this while, so this feeling indeed doesnt bode well.

Anyway, wish everyone an exciting new semester. For me this semester will be a hard and important one; I cant afford to screw it up. This calls for hardcore nerding, a concept which sounds so elusive to me. Hehe, step by step...

Sigh, so many challenges.

Oh yeah, why is everyone's birthday on March???



Birthday Dedication

2006-01-09T10:46:46.206+08:00

It is with great honour (and with no mistake) that I dedicated this post to none other than my Tai Lou, who has just aged by another year. You grow not only in age, but also wisdom. I am sure we will see more great things from you. So happy birthday Max and have a wonderful year!



So u guys miss me....

2005-12-10T04:00:00.433+08:00

How's everybody? I believe everyone is having a good time, cuz I sure do! For those not having fun ( stuck in the exam or wuteva), just remember - cest la vie. Hehehe. I also think that the time is ripe to declare to everyone that I have finally done the impossible - work. The salary is not lucrative at all, but I have my own reasons.

Truth be told, I am actually quite pissed rite now cuz someone snatched away the Tooth Faerie Mouth Wash, just because this blardy streamyx jammed for a few seconds. I have also realized that my Neopets skills have corroded with time....

Anyways, for those who are in Malaysia, anyone watch 8TV Quickie? The hosts are just amazing - Adam, Marion, Rina and Fatface. Especially Marion, who is just hot. Anyways, before the Quickie starts, usually, there will be some kinda animation showing, then something that sounds like "ahhh, e-mails good" will be heard. Now, what exactly is the voice saying? This has been puzzling me for quite some time now and I have come up with tons of guesses. What say you?


Wanna take this opportunity to congratulate Max for having published in an article in "full colour". Well, this is long overdue, but I have just read the pdf version. Wohoo!

Birds of predator

2008-11-25T23:48:29.532+08:00

Man, birds in Australia are nasty. The other day, when I was walking to the uni, I was attacked by a mother duck! Well, I heard that ducks attack people, but I will just laugh and tease the person. Didn't know I would also be the victim!

I was only walking near them, didnt even crossed their path. Nasty creatures! With outstretched neck, she just zoomed to me, until I threateningly swung my legs and tried to kick the bastard's sorry ass away. And her "ducklings" she tried to protect were not even lil' fledglings anymore. Their size was almost as big as the mother! Sigh, overprotective mother even exists in the animal kingdom. Ok, to be fair, I am not sure that it's a mother duck. So, I just assume. Kekeke.

Other known aggresive birds are galahs and magpies. I heard that magpies like attacking passerby and pecks away people's eyeballs. Sick idiots. For those who don't know what are magpies, they are black and white birds, and they look like crows. In children stories, they are said to have the habit of pecking away glittery or shiny stuff from people. So I was walking back from the gym the other day and a bunch of magpies flew past me. Then, I realized - there is another con of getting a piercing...



lazy to think of a title

2005-10-18T00:25:53.840+08:00

haizz, now too early can't sleep. So fiddling friendster. Frendsrer get really popular now because it's fun. Why izzit fun, u may ask? My 2 cents:

Friendster fun because can see your friends' updates lah. Now got friendster blog summore, really jam-packed with features. Dats why everyone play Friendster, cuz they miss their friends mah. U disagree ah? Go jump down frm a bridge la, useless piece of shit!

Secondly, there are some accounts dedicated for 'Legluis" to join. I know a few la, if u want ask me. But sadly for u, real lengluis are really few and far between in these acconuts, only got those super ugly bimboes who think they can rival Angelina Jolie taking headshots of themselves. The result is horrible beyond words. Still it's fun to see how dislussioned people can be. So, give it a shot. If you're a gal and not interested in seeing gals, dont be dissapointed. There are Lengchai's version of this also. Although sadly this is 1 trillion times more disgusting.

but of course, i have a list of real frenster lengluis too. wei, i am not desperate k. just bumped into them by chance :P

Also, one of the funniest things abt friendster is the Top Network Search. Most of the time, there are something interesting. Here're some examples:

"aku menyelak baju kebaya"
"ranjang coli"
"stim di bilik mandi"
"diramas"
"posisi jimak"
"diramas"
"malam paling panjang"
"terlondeh baju"

man, these mofos are really desperate man. if wanna look for p0rn, look somehwere else mah, friendster search is not very efficient anyways. dun pollute my Top Network Search. later ppl who view my profile would think i mix with bad company. but damn creative lah these desperados. Hahaha.
