It has been.. a very eventful nine days.

The last nine days have been crazy. Really crazy. I'd tell you more about it, but there's so much to say that you'd probably lose me halfway. But I will tell you one thing that's been happened: Kaki Dilemma is here to stay.

I can't think of a better way to end the decade.

Hello again.

At around this time of year, it's almost obligatory for fresh school leavers to write posts along the lines of the ending of one chapter and the beginning of another, and similar such things. Apparently, I am not very different from the masses, so here goes.

Secondary school has been good to me. Both of them. As much as I despise the education system, frankly, education has rather taken the backseat for the past five years. I'm not saying that this is how things should be, merely that this is how things were. There are those who will say that they cannot wait to move on from secondary school, but I am not one of them. I'm sure I will come to miss it in years to come, and probably sooner than even I think. So if you're reading this, you're probably one of the people who has helped shape my secondary school life to become what it is. Yes, even if you happen to be among people I hate. And for that service, I thank you.

What a chapter it's been, eh?

I don't like being called "fuck face".

This is by far the most gangsta challenge ever. I'm not sure exactly what I did to provoke him, or if he was having PMS or something, but.. well. Yeah. Gangsta.

And you know what? He was so serious that HE REMOVED ME FROM HIS FRIENDS LIST? :O CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I'M A DEAD MAN.

Daniel Loh, if you're reading this, I've called your bluff. Take your best shot, fat man.

Hey, you know what?

SPM is really different than I expected.

Prose ftw.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I, on the other hand,
Suck at poetry.

I'm too sexy for a car, too sexy for a car, too sexy by far.

That's what I'm telling myself until I get my license.

Muk?

I won't lie to you; This post is totally plagiarized.

You know how Ekans backwards is "snake", 'cos he's a snake?



..And Arbok is "cobra" backwards, because he's a cobra?


Well.. What's Muk?

Round One. FIGHT!

I dug up my old Street Fighter Zero disc today. So many memories. :')

Birdie still rates as the #1 most hilariously-named character. They think up a huge, black punk character and they decide that they should call him Birdie?

5 Chings of energy.

If more great scientists were Chinese, we'd have Chings and Shuns instead of Newtons and Pascals.

A true exercise in futility.

If you've been reading the news lately, you'd have heard about the dissatisfaction among Singaporeans after our Tourism Minister staked claim to various traditional dishes. Since Malaysians aren't the type to gawk on the sidelines of a good fight (We only do that at road accidents), some started fighting back.

So honestly, does it really matter so much whether your food originated from our country or theirs? I know I've never stopped to think about it when I order a cheeseburger. And you know what? I don't think they have, either.

I think reading the news is making me a cynic.

Friday, September 25, 2009

O HAI.

So Chem tuition's been cancelled last-minute, and all of a sudden I have two hours of free time on my lap. How great is that? So, quick updates:

- My bass amp has been busted for a while now. D:
- I've started reading novels again. I am relieved.
- I'm back on my feet and running again. Let's hope I don't fracture anything else.
- I bought The Resistance. Woo, legal music.
- My hair is longer than usual. (Yes, this is a big deal)

So as you can tell, life is uneventful. I like it.

Also: Guess The Song is now updated, and more fiendishly difficult than ever. Have at it.

Troubled.

When your dreams includes waking up on a school day, putting your alarm on snooze and going back to bed, something is clearly not right.

Thursday, September 17, 2009

Context.

Yesterday, a friend of mine lost his father.

And that really just shoves things into context, y'know?

After hearing the news yesterday evening, I was sitting on my bed thinking about things and it really hit me that people (myself included) are placing priority on things that really shouldn't be important at all. You've probably heard by now about the Kanye West/Taylor Swift incident the VMAs. Of course you have; Everyone has. What perplexes me is the sheer amount of people I know who are so passionately angry at Kanye after hearing the news. Is it honestly so important that Kanye is a jerk? If I broke it to them that my friend lost his dad, in all likelihood all they'd do is go "Oh" and the conversation would move on. In comparison to how they reacted to the VMAs, that's just really messed up.

Sure, these people don't know my friend personally, and neither did they know his dad. But do they know Kanye or Taylor? Probably not. And come on, even Taylor Swift would tell you that losing her father would be infinitely more grievous that what happened to her at the VMAs.

Is my message getting through here? 'Cos I really don't know.

What do you think?

About freaking time.

Yep, so there's my funds jar for a Fender Mustang bass. So far I have RM250 in notes, and about a kilogram (probably more) of coins. I've got some ways to go.

Ho hum.

Yeah. That's about it, really.

If ever I needed a personality test to tell me about myself, this would be the one I'd take.

iPersonic

Sensitive Doer


Sensitive Doers are gentle, modest and reserved persons. They cope well with everyday life and like their privacy. With their quiet, optimistic nature, they are also good, sought-after listeners and other people feel well in their company. All in all, this type is the most likeable and friendliest of all personality types. Tolerance and heir regard for others distinguish their personality. They are very caring, generous and always willing to help. They are open to and interested in everything that is new or unknown to them. However, if their inner value system or their sense of justice is hurt, Sensitive Doers can suddenly and surprisingly become forceful and assertive.

Sensitive Doers enjoy the comforts life offers to the full. They are very happy in everyday life. Sensitive Doers are often gifted artists or very good craftsmen. Creativity, imagination and an especially keen perception are just a few of their strong points. Sensitive Doers are very presence-oriented; long-term planning and preparations do not appeal to them. They take life as it comes and react flexibly to daily demands. They do not like too much routine and predictability. Their talents come more to the fore when work processes are variable and there are not so many rules. Sensitive Doers like to work alone; if they are part of a team, they do not get involved in competitive or power games and prefer living and working together harmoniously and openly.


Sensitive Doers are completely satisfied with a small, close circle of friends as their need for social contacts is not very marked. Here, too, they avoid conflicts - quarrels and disputes put considerable strain on them. Sensitive Doers are often very fond of animals and are very good with small children. As partner, this type is loyal and reliable and is willing to invest a lot in a relationship. Mutual respect and tolerance are very important to Sensitive Doers. Their love of pleasure makes them a pleasant companion with whom one can experience intensive moments. They like to look after their partner with attentiveness and small gifts and are very sensitive to the partner’s needs - often more than to their own. However, should they meet the wrong person, they run the risk of being taken advantage of. They are then deeply disappointed.


Adjectives which describe your type: introverted, practical, emotional, spontaneous, sensitive, peace-loving, reserved, gentle, good-natured, independent, empathetic, friendly, playful, carefree, sympathetic, relaxed, quiet, modest, pleasure-loving, loyal, obliging, caring, helpful, optimistic



Go take it, and tell me what you get.

Man does not live on bread alone. Man needs good music to go with said bread. THEN it's a good time.

They say that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, but for me it's through my ears.

Female musicians are ftw.

Right, I'm going back to Physics. Kthxbai.

Ignorance may or may not be bliss, but it sure is fun.

As kids, everyone thinks that radiation is glowing neon green in colour, and that you'll become the Hulk or Spiderman if you manage to get your hands on some.

Then education comes around and ruins everything.

In case you can't read it from the picture, that door says "bad boyz". Now, I'm not entirely sure what a bad boyz car is, but I'm sure as heck that THAT car is not it.

I'm a cripple!

In case you didn't already know, I fractured my left foot yesterday on the 5th metatarsal while playing basketball. I'm on a crutch right now, but my foot is healing really well. The doctor said I should be on crutches for 3 weeks, but I can limp around crutch-less as it is. Still, I'll be sticking to the crutch for a while just in case my crutch-less limping makes this worse.

A quick update.

A quick summary of what's been going on for the past so-and-so amount of time:
- My band made auditions for DJ's prom. Not sure if we're auditioning for any other schools. Song suggestions, anyone?
- I've started taking studies (a little more) seriously, which is why I'm now online (and blogging) less.
- I'm doing some parkour now, which means that I'm now also taking my exercise and diet more seriously, because no one wants broken limbs. That means regular workouts and a protein-, carbohydrate- and calcium-heavy diet.
- We played a gig last Saturday:



I'm pretty happy with this song in particular, since I really like the song and we only practised it as a full band for 20 minutes(?) and still pulled it off pretty well. Epic. The sound quality (I'm not sure if it was the mic, the hall or the camera) is sadly not as epic.

And now that list makes me realize that I haven't been living a very interesting life as of late. D:

Stupid motorists.

Today, I was trying to get across the street on my bike. I saw an approaching car further down the street and figured I'd have enough time to cross if the driver had the common courtesy of slowing down for pedestrians. But you guessed it; When I was halfway across the street, I realized that this guy had not in fact slowed down and proceeded to come to a near halt right in front of me to give me the finger and yell at me from inside his car, all the while blaring his stupid horn. Of course, he couldn't slow down to let the cyclist pass, but could slow down to yell at said cyclist.

Motorists can be such jerks. I hope petrol goes up to 5 bucks a litre.

Sunday, July 19, 2009

Random.

In the not-too-distant future, the world's population will be so dense that governments will no longer need/want every married couple to procreate, and prospective mums and dads will have to take qualifying exams before being allowed to have kids.

Feeling good.

Today at school, I was ambushed with not one, but two cakes. One from my classmates and one from the CF people, both within an hour. And what an hour it was.

I ate cake (of course), got smeared in said cake, shaved with a ruler and got drenched. I'm not sure about you, but that makes a good hour for me. And while I have your attention, I'd like to say a tremendous thank you to all my friends who made my birthday this year my best one yet, and also to all the other random well-wishers who came around to get at the cake. I'm not sure what I did to deserve this, but whatever it was, I'm glad I did it.

To everyone who wished me a good one, I have this to say: It was.

A sad state of affairs.

Anyone who knows me reasonable well will know that I rarely take any interest in our country's politics. Recently, however, our dear leaders have made one of their stupidest decisions in a good while.

And I don't like that.

Short of an armed coup, the best we can do is voice our opinions as best we can. Take a minute to vote on Dr. Mahathir's blog and your voice just might be heard.

Woah.



Exactly what I needed for my dry spell of bass inspiration.

Saturday, June 27, 2009

Decisions, decisions.

It's so difficult to decide between electric guitar and bass guitar. When I grow up, I'm going to live in a van full of so many of both that it won't even be funny.

No, it'll just be awesome.

Lest I forget.

Rest in peace, Michael. You've been hit by the smoothest criminal.

One of the sexiest guitars ever made.



Yes, John 5 looks kinda strange. But I need his guitar. Alder body (a rarity in Squiers) , 22 frets, pick-up toggle switch on top, and to top it all off, a price-tag of less than 400USD. Looks like Squier's really stepping up their game.

I simply have nothing to say. Imagine that.

The end is nigh!

If you replace every mention of H1N1/swine flu in the newspapers with "zombie infection", you'd probably freak out.

Why are you looking at me like that?

Saturday, June 20, 2009

What's wrong with these people?

"So.. a lot of gay dudes ah?"

Lots of people say that when I tell them that I used to attend a boys school. And just about every time I feel like punching them square in the mouth.

Guess The Song: The Sequel

I did not put my list on shuffle. I just picked the more obscure songs (some much more so than others) and put 'em up here. Have fun.

I've decided that I'm just going to keep adding to this list. Indefinitely.

UPDATE: As of #84, I'm no longer using the only the first lines of songs. Any line goes. And since I'm doing that, I can now repeat songs. Have fun.

You know the drill. Googling will have you banz0red 4ever.

Scores!
Esfern: 31
Justine: 17
Daph: 15
Joanna: 13
Ooi Giap: 5
Luke: 3
Yoong Tat: 4
Cheryl: 1

We're awesome.

Incidentally, we're also half-nude. I will be looking in to this to see if there's some sort of connection.

A plea to the big mobile phone people.

You know what gets on my nerves? It's the fact that mobile phones nowadays can do just about everything but cook your meals (though I hear companies are looking to fix that), but they come with batteries that will last you for three hours or so if you actually use all of their wonderfully addictive features.

Case in point as to how much I live out of my phone: This post, along with many of my other recent posts, has been written on my phone. I also connect to instant messengers, Facebook, Twitter and Gmail from this thing (sometimes all at once). My battery rarely lasts me more than a day. As I type this, my phone is telling me that I have "Low Battery" and is due for another charge.

Curse you, Nokia.

"I'm here because I'm bored!"

Get it right.

If the haze is going to stick around anyway, it should at least get bad enough so that the government shuts down schools.

Pitcher time.


Group photo!


The original League of Completely Ordinary Gentlemen reunited and doing completely ordinary things.



..What, you mean it's just us?


Also, I forgot to mention: We finished the whole 100-bottles-of-beer-on-the-wall song while waiting for one of the rides.

Screaming at all the boring parts.

I normally don't blog about "my day", but today I'll make an exception.

I spent the day in Genting with some friends, and although we didn't have the time to ride all the rides, I have made a significant discovery:

TEACUP RIDES ARE HARDCORE.


Yes, they are. Even more than the Solero Shot. Once again, allow me to illustrate:





Yeah. Pictures when Calvin sends them to me. 'Till then, I'm going to go lie down. Dumb teacup ride.

Just a thought.

Adam Lambert completely ripped off Muse's arrangement of Feeling Good and didn't give them any credit for it.

Work In Progress.

If life were a video game.

Real life needs some progress bars and skill levels like in The Sims. Maybe then I'd start studying seriously.

Also, anyone who cracks a Sim joke at me, I will personally punch in the jeans.

It's hammer time!

Today I was walking through Ikea's showroom holding a hammer I bought from Ace. It was a very, very tempting experience. Allow me to illustrate:



Ah, hammers. The power to both create and destroy.

How I wasted my time today:

MyBrute. If you're anything like me, you'll spend 20 minutes trying to get a decent avatar, give up and try to settle for less, and then decide that you don't want to settle for less. And so it goes.

Try to beat me up. You know you want to.

Cool stuff.

At least that's over..

But why doesn't it feel like I'm on break yet?

Beer is now cheaper than gas. Drink, don't drive.

I'm just keeping it for a friend, honest!

If you're the type to pay attention to the side of my blog, you'll realize that I'm trying to read Twilight. Again.

This time I made it past the first 50 pages. Will I finally finish the book? Who knows.

Probability of death: 100%


Lifetime odds of dying from:

Any accident: 1 in 36
A motor vehicle accident: 1 in 81
A firearm: 1 in 202
Poisoning: 1 in 344
A falling object (terrestrial): 1 in 4,873
Drowning in a bathtub: 1 in 10,455
Being caught in or between objects: 1 in 29,860
Suffocation by a plastic bag: 1 in 130,498
Lightning: 1 in 2,320,000

Some years ago, a committee of specialists produced a report for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission; It's called the Rasmussen Report. The Rasmussen Report is at its core a compilation of probability statistics. The Rasmussen Report is, by definition, a incredibly boring piece of work. And yet, I can't help but think I'd want to read it. Why? Because the bottom-line subject of the Rasmussen Report is death; Yours, mine and everyone else's.

The Rasmussen Report is basically a compilation of probability statistics of dying in different ways. The probability of being killed in a truly shocking variety of mishaps, in fact. Want to know how probable it is you won't survive a flight? Or how likely it is you'll be killed by lightning? Read the Rasmussen Report.

Shockingly enough, just skimming through some of the summaries and statistics, I find that the Rasmussen Report is a surprisingly uplifting one, whether its authors meant it or not (No, they certainly didn't). It tells you in a precise and tidy format that in everything you do, there's some risk involved. However, it also tells us that the things that our society worries about most are some of the least likely things to happen. We spend such a great deal of our time giving ourselves stomach ulcers, hypertension and heart attacks worrying about getting killed in a plane crash (odds: 1 in three million) when the real killers out there are.. well, stomach ulcers, hypertension and heart attacks.

Despite what anti-smoking campaigners would have you believe, there is no such thing as "preventable death". Sooner or later, everyone is going to die (the only question is how peaceful or painful). Just ask your doctor. So that's exactly why the message of the Rasmussen Report is an optimistic one. The sooner we realize that we're all going to die, the sooner we stop worrying about it so much and start enjoying the ride.

Why quality of life as opposed to mere quantity of years? They say Methuselah lived to be almost nine and a half centuries old. Well, I'll bet the last 800 years weren't too exciting. Alexander the Great, on the other hand, was thirty-three at the time of his death and had conquered almost the whole of the known world by then. Dying was probably the only thing left to do.

I could decide to live the rest of my life within my own home, eating only home-grown produce and having to wear a jumpsuit to do the gardening because of the ultraviolet rays. I'd probably live a healthy 90 years or so.

Or I could go do ride some rollercoasters and do some bungee jumping. In a thunderstorm.

Almost there.

In celebration of almost completely rebuilding my playlist (and then some) it's time to guess the song!

1. Caught up in this madness, too blind to see Justine
2. Say your prayers little one; Dont forget, my son, to include everyone Justine
3. I've got a soul that cannot sleep at night when something just ain't right Ooi Giap
4. It's bugging me, grating me and twisting me around Joanna
5. When you look you see right through me; Cut the rope, I fell to my knees; Born and broken every single time Justine
6. You'll never be a better kind if you don't leave the world behind Justine
7. Fear and panic in the air; I want to be free from desolation and despair Joanna
8. See me ride out of that sunset on your colour TV screen Justine
9. What I've got you've got to give it to your mamma Esfern
10. Find yourself a girl and settle down; Live a simple life in a quiet town Justine
11. They say I need some rogaine to put in my hair Joanna
12. Fumbling his confidence and wondering why the world has passed him by Daph
13. My baby's on the level, I try to read her mind; She's on the straight narrow, I'm guessing all the time Justine
14. On and on, reckless abandon; Something's wrong, this is gonna shock them Justine
15. Mamma, take this badge from me; I can't use it anymore Daph
16. I think I'm drowning, asphyxiated; I want to break this spell that you've created Daph
17. I seem to think I think I got a little situation; So listen to me sister, listen maybe you can help Justine
18. When you're on a holiday, you can't find the words to say Joanna
19. I was caught in the middle of a railroad track; I looked round and I knew there was no turning back Justine
20. She's got a smile that it seems to me; Reminds me of childhood memories Daph
21. Despair to the point 'till they provoke; The punchline before they have told the joke Justine
22. She told him she'd rather fix her make-up than try to fix what's going on Joanna
23. Bear paws and rascal power; Watching us in your garage; Big girl you ate the neighbour; The nova is over Justine
24. All the small things; True care, truth brings Joanna
25. So who's that girl there; I wonder what went wrong that she had to roam the streets Justine
26. This time the bullet cold rocked ya; A yellow ribbon instead of a swastika Daph
27. It's alright to tell me what you think about me; I won't try to argue or hold it against you Justine
28. Back in black; I hit the sack Daph
29. There was a friend of mine on murder, and the judge's gavel fell; Jury found him guilty, gave him sixteen years in hell Justine
30. This shining city built of gold, far cry from innocence Justine

Yep. That's pretty much my favourites on shuffle.
(1) song name - artist

EDIT: I just realised that I missed out #30. Have at it.

Also, 26 out of 30 done within half a day? Nice.

I'm on a boat!

"I'm riding on a dolphin, doing flips and shit
The dolphin's splashing, getting everybody all wet
But this isn't Seaworld, this is as real as it gets
I'm on a boat, mother$%*@er don't you ever forget."

Gotta love that song.

The only music video of the song I could find on the internet, and it's only available because they censored all the swearing (i.e. half the song).

I need a nerf gun. For some nerf fun.

The ampere and the what now?

Who'd have thought that buying a second pedal would mean so much trouble with AC adaptors? Gah. Thank God for 9 volt batteries.

Oh, and whether you like it or not, this layout is going to stay for a while. Until and unless I'm sure I don't like it. Which I'm not.

Bass shredding. Epic win. Seal of approval.




I will be unavailable for the next lifetime or so, because I'll be busy learning how to play just those two bars. I think I'll even have to learn how to sweep pick on a bass.

Thursday, April 16, 2009

I'd like to thank the Acadamy.

I hereby award myself this seal of approval.



Syok sendiri indeed.

Jinxed, I say!


Then today, for the first time since as long ago as I can remember, I fell off a bike. In front of her house.

And where are the plasters and surgical tape when you need them? Murphy's Law at work.

LULWUT?: The Sequel.



Not for the faint of heart.

I knew it!

Sticking its tongues out at you. Oh, the nerve.

This must be another one of those trends I'm missing out on. I'm so confused. I think if I stared at a pair, it would stare back. I'd have to lock it away overnight for fear that it'll strike while I sleep.



I'm sorry you had to see that.

EDIT: No, I don't own them.

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

So today one of my bicycle's pedals cracked snapped in half while I was cycling around the neighbourhood. Hardcore.

Now I have an awesome new bike, because that snapped pedal is just one of the many problems about my old bike.

Now all I need to know is: When's summer?

I think the most dangerous part about Earth Hour is the false sense of accomplishment that comes after.

Saving The Planet; All Within An Hour

How much good is one hour of darkness going to do the planet? Even if Earth Hour achieves or even exceeds its goal of 1 billion people turning off their lights, I doubt it will make much difference in the long-run. And awareness? I think there are more people taking Earth Hour as an excuse to party than there are those who are actually in it to prevent global warming. If you really do want to help, spend that hour looking up more practical ways to save the planet. You can do it in the dark if you want to.

Earth Hour has become like wearing your pants low; No one's quite sure what the point is, but everyone's doing it because everyone's doing it.

David Archuleta? No, come on. It's been a year since Switchfoot. I need a rock band.

So about camp.

Will someone please tell me what was up with the whole "hot topic" thing? No, I'm not completely oblivious. I just lack the specifics.

Sorry.

I blame the fatigue.

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

Seriously. Does anyone post on my Cbox using their real names anymore?

..Wait, what?

PAS made so much noise about Avril Lavigne and now they're letting Korn come over?

Note that Korn is part of the Sunburst '09 lineup. Now note also the apparent lack of complaints and/or criticisms from PAS.

Maybe they'll catch on a little later.

Please, PAS; At least be consistently annoying.

There's just enough time between each ring for you to:
a) wake up from your sleep
b) hope it doesn't continue ringing, and
c) be grateful that the caller seems to have given up
