world class chocolate
baskin and robbins mmmm, 31% off... MMMMmMMMMmMMmm


moving on...

well, we've come to the end of the rainbow sequence, now it's time for one day of random colour, and one day of random theme.

random colour:
pink, brown, maroon, peach, beige, grey, black, white, etc, etc. just as long as it's not adequately represented by the rainbow colours (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)

random theme:
textures,cars, stone, roofs, hands, etc etc etc.

these are things i just pulled out of my ass, so please feel free to suggest more to me, and maybe one of these days i might even have a poll haha.

but for tommorow, i'm gonna do pink (wahahahahahaha), but there's still time to get me to do what you want for a random theme the day after, just leave a cookie ;) and i'll see what i can do.

wilkommen, bienvenue, welcome
sunday bloody sunday.

every sunday morning lately has been a trial. cos i can see the windows and with the air of religion in my lungs, i start to get existential. and i wonder what it would be like the just take a short cut from the 3rd floor to meet the parking lot.

but it's a see saw and exhausting cos sometimes i feel very euphoric. and bounce back to suicidal. where is my sense of self worth? it's repressed by my sense of blurness.

on to other things, sunday is designated driver day. as in, i am designated driver. compounded with my moodiness from earlier, it's translated to theme park driving. add upset and agitated passengers(mom, dad, bro) giving me hints/instructions/advice/screams/chiding/and so on and so forth. it does wonders for my sense of patience and control. though i need to work on my sense of well, sense. in retrospect, i do really dumbfuck things on the road. so all directed comments are justified.

now it's night, and i'm cheerful again. cheerful-ISH. at least i don't feel like emptying the panadol stash anyway. all give thanks for music, art, and terry pratchett.

all the shots of stuff in the house.


(looking at blue pom-poms) Whoever killed these smurfs sure meant business.

fook eat
it's been a really...confusing day. i don't know what i'm feeling. it's a borderline between being really happy and being really depressed and frustrated. so they cancelled each other out and i've been drifting about like a zombie.

thank you all for the well wishes.

forgive me for my sucktastic mood. (damn i like that word)

ugh, i don't really like the way this one turned out. i really need to improve on my shot quality. please be kind, i know it's not that great.


Some friends of mine got me a sweater for my birthday. I'd have preferred a moaner or a screamer, but the sweater was OK.

wow it's early.
this is one of the rare times i actually post before the sun goes down. I'm having fun with this lil project. keeps me creatively occupied. makes me long for my own digicam however. All these shots taken in and about my house.

ai caramba.

mildly scrambled
another day another bout of madness. well, in the perception of others anyway. XD

most of my classmates now think, or confirmed their suspicions, that i am a raving lunatic. this in part by my insistence to take random pictures of them or anything that is orange for today's photo offering. i get entertained when i mildly freak people out.

but i'm hoping my eccentricities wont be a replacement for actual personality. 8D

another note, i felt so bloody stupid in marketing tutorial today. the combination of fatigue, marker fumes and whole blocks of text taunting me from my textbook, made me feel like the mental equivalent of george bush. this was aggravated further by me not being able to turn on my default brain -to- mouth filter, ultimately causing me to be a sucker for attempting to fill in the meaningful silences thrown at us by the lecturer after every question directed at our lil tutorial class. At lest i tried!...right? but getting almost every single wild guess wrong after a while demoralizes you somewhat.

and off i go.

ps. if you guys wanna comment, toss me a cookie ;), finally figured out how customize my comment box, and i'd rather you guys leave cookies cos chatbox shouts will disappear after a while.

the next piece. shots from around my house, and college area.

fun with colours
since i have finally regained control of the digicam (or managed to steal it somewhat), i'm gonna embark on a new project, for fun and sanity.
i don't know what to call it yet, and i don't know where it's gonna go, but i'm just gonna start it with this first set of shots. at least it'll give me a reason to update everyday. ohohoh. at the end of it, i'll prolly compile the series then upload it on DA, but that remains to be seen.
the following shots were taken in and about college, then spliced and diced in photoshop CS. hope you guys enjoy it. ^^

i'm a sodding failure at managing my time.

i feel as if i've been getting a sign. and a second chance rather.

rewind to wednesday night. status of figure assignments, not done. status of panic/world weariness/ work ethic cynicism, over drive.

decided to compromise by skipping this week and do better next week. lo and behold, tutorial gets cancelled later that thursday. i've got no class on fri. class on sat also put off. and next week tues is thaipusam. is this a sign?

oh, and have been getting messages that choir rehearsals on sunday got cancelled. and early rehearsal on monday also cancelled.

with all this extra time..... so called.

i am so fucked.

the good part so far is that my capturing block seems to have gone. trick is to avoid drawing the faces 1st, since i'm supposed to be doin figures. it's easier to draw a whole body than a face for me. the eye tends to more forgiving about the wonkiness of limbs than the proportions of faces.

beer and shoes and bbq ribs.

went for another workshop for M!, twas an interesting experience.

ooo, good news, saw the torrent for a raw file of samurai champloo 18. can't wait for a subbed version to come out.

i have just realised i can start putting down a list of mass-media that has shaped me over the years. i'm gonna be as honest as my legal advisor would permit, and list them down here. maybe it'll give you an insight on how i got to the pink and wobbly state of mind i usually find myself in.

by the way, for some reason i find myself drawn to warm colours...RED....and pink too. more for shock effect and the fact it can be pleasant haha. it's always interesting to see the look on ppls faces when i take off my shoes and blind them with my red socks, or for my preference to pink coloured items at random moments.


anyways, i'm off topic, back to the list, in no particular order, other than my scattered brain processes and patched memory...

books/stuff i have read/seen/heard that stick in my head.

the bible - so sue me, it was one of the thickest books i ever read when i was a kid, other than the phone directory. now that i think about it, i never did read it from cover to cover. Just all the exciting bits XD.

calvin and hobbes, by bill waterson - when i first read it at circa age 6~12 i couldn't get half of what he was saying, but i was drawn to it nonetheless, i always had that feeling i would get the jokes later. and true enough i did, and so much more. the little wisdoms and insights on life and people have changed me or affected me a lot. taught me to be more mature and to find the funny or absurd side to life that's always there, but not seen by many. he also has eye candy to offer.

terry pratchett, the discworld books, and others - one of the few writers whose work i am so comfy with that any book by him is considered worth buying even without thinking. His thoughts of life led me to another level of bizzare, but always had this underlying seriousness that there is still hope for humanity, despite the fact that most of the time we are headed for our own oblivion.

sandman, by neil gaiman. - eye candy and the occult. and brain wrenching plotlines.

sesame street - i still like the show. there's always some adult satire thrown in, start em young i say. but i don't watch it anymore. it's called a failure in negotiations between my sense of maturity and sense of curiosity. that and i never seem to know when they air it on TV.

webcomics - the whole plethora of them. you can see my link box for those which i frequent. it's due for an update soon. :P

national geographic and reader's digest. - nothing recent mind you, it's cos there's a few shelves in my house of these from as early as i think the early 60's, maybe earlier, and nothing more recent than the late 80's methinks. it's amazing how little as well as how much we've changed. there's still good stuff in those pages. one of those things which give me something new everytime i read them evey 2 years or so.

anime and manga - at first it was doraemon and dragonball, then cardcaptor sakura and smurai X, in BM or in local newstands and television. then came the advent of cd burners and broadband. then came kazaa and bit torrent. it's a pretty wide scope these works, some make you laugh, some make you think, some educate, some are bimbotic, but yeah, they're there if you wanna know major influences in my life.

the internet - in all it's glory and guts. having information and knowing how to get it at your fingertips. there was a period when i sourced almost everything from the net, basically on the premise that it was easier, which was true most of the time. but till there's a comprehansive archive of actual printed material on the information superhigway, i'll give the good `ol library more frequent flyer miles.

Monty Python - do i need to explain? comedy that still is funny today as it was almost 1/2 a century ago. some jokes may seem stale, but then again, they were the first to do most of em, they were the pioneers. they're all from havard or cambridge i think and they come up with lines like "drop your panties sir william, i cannot wait until lunchtime".

so that's all i can think of at the moment. now back to watching episodes of sex and the city. which is looking to be another step in my education on popular culture in the hopes of understanding the way people go about these things, and to see those fabulous outfits haha.

la lluvia
the choral piece, "cloudburst" an arrangement of a poem by octavio paz by eric whitacre, is one of the most hauntingly beautiful, and magical pieces of music i have ever had the gift of listening to.

but back to other things. no day but today huh? i just realized when i really really cherish something, and in my vain attempt to express it, sometimes i sound as if i am gonna die tommorow haha. but then again, there was once a saying, "today is a good day to die"

it's interesting how much more life is appreciated when there is the prospect of death. there is no pleasure without pain. no freedom without limits.

no love without hate? or is it knowing love when the pain of loneliness is a heavy burden to bear?

aaaaaand.... happy birthday to aly. you go girl!

eating 2 ramli burgers and one bowl of instant noodles in one night is never advisable.

man's romance - this one's dedicated to aya and fellow furubas. the gif animation is to die for.

i have been prodded by my sense of unnacomplishment (yay! new word) as well as bitching in my bitch box to write a post.

well, it has been a hectic ever since college started. and we are stilll recovering from the aftermath of the great blackout of '05. And the collateral damagefrom my lack of sleep and time management skills.

It's amazing in our day and age i find much merrriment and enjoyment UNO rummy up, UNO stacko, chor tai tea, pictionary, charades, and also randomness in conversation which is augmented by a dosage of caffeine and sugar. No, i do not work for the people who made these games. i just enjoy the fruits of their labour like how any mindless consumer would. 8D

and now, for something completely different.

Looks very the beauty``is it sushi? is it candy? will wonders never cease?! *insert drmatic hyperbole music here*
pi10k-converting the 1st 10 000 digits of pi into a musical sequence``what i got mostly out of this was cacophony.
Lego Porn``i realise i am not as screwed up as i think i am after seeing what this guy does in his spare time.
Time to get out of bed ``i love this, just try to wake the lil guy up by putting your mouse over him for a few secs.

"I don't wanna talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! You mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!"

"How you English say, 'I one more time, mac, unclog my nose in your direction', sons of a window-dresser! So, you think you could out-clever us French folk with your silly knees-bent running about advancing behavior?! I wave my private parts at your aunties, you cheesy lot of second hand electric donkey-bottom biters."

"No chance, English bed-wetting types. I burst my pimples at you and call your door-opening request a silly thing, you tiny-brained wipers of other people's bottoms!"

right. i just noticed a trend. one usually has to be either

  1. ridiculously beautiful

  2. exceedingly offensive

  3. bogglingly intelligent

  4. or even genuinely interesting

to get anywhere or any attention. i exaggerate. behold my wonders of bad spelling.

basically, major changes i have made in my life. well, not major, but changes nonetheless.




like lah i'm gonna put here for the whole world to see. 8D

see there's one already.

my life has been enriched by the internet. by the free expanse of free (pirated) material readily available for perusal at my fingertips and mouse wheel.

ppl go read su yin's blog. go shoo.

go visit the kung fool link as well under my webcomics addiction box. he's been updating again. be sure to check out the previous posts for links of interest.

i have come to terms with the fact that universal acceptance/popularity is an impossible and unrealistic ideal that i have childishly hoped to cling on to for a long time. GROW up!! there are some people who would gladly spit on my grave and defecate explosively on my remains.

and me likewise.

tho not to that extent.

i'll prolly be only to muster waving a picture of a pile of dog poo at your elderly aunt.

oh. and college starts again. tis a 6 day week. oh joy.

it looks bleak but i'll survive dang namit!, i swear this upon my pet pig's grave in front of that irritating teacher whom i refer to as barney: purple destroyer of innocent souls and minds, the great beast who signals the beginning of the end, the one who proclaimed "some carnivores eat meat". i wonder what do the rest do? go vegan on weekends to appease their guilty conscience when they devour all those cute bunny rabbits?

this article on bittorrent gave me deja vu cos i actually compared bt to tivo in a conversation prior to reading this. i think i am one of those partly to blame for the bittorrent proliferation in my circles, cos i recall being the one to always tell ppl to try it out. those music and tv ppl are gonna turn up one day at my door and give me a stern warning and a large pie in my face. hopefully it's cream and not cow.

oh, and i can't wait for tuesday cos i'll get to see tigger :D

hmmm, what else?

remember to light a candle in your heart for all the screwed up poo poo that is going on in our lives today. god help us all.

Conversation, like certain portions of the anatomy, always runs smoothly when lubricated.

crossing the date line.
what a year it has been.

WHAT a year.

for the world. and as well for me.

i could write a book. it has been a defining period.

the year really ended with a bang.

And I know things now,
Many valuable things,
That I hadn't known before:
Do not put your faith
In a cape and a hood,
They will not protect you
The way that they should.
And take extra care with strangers,
Even flowers have their dangers.
And though scary is exciting,
Nice is different than good.

*Stephen Sondheim, excerpt from "i know things now"[into the woods]

prayers go out to the new years, my loved ones, the victims of the tragedy, those who need healing, and those who need strength.

i seems to be so introspective in my blog lately whenever i write. my blog is my journal/ record of dates and feelings i need expressing and/or need to be remembered. it's much more secure thn pen and paper i feel, looking at the condition of my desk @_@""
