The router is king (a whole load of pictures)

So I haven’t been on for the past few days cos my modem/router died. And suddenly they decide to start working again today. So I’m back in the online world :p

Well, its been awhile since I’ve posted a whole bunch of pictures, and I’ve been clearing my phone’s memory (annoying process of infra-red phone to blue-tooth phone to pc), and so here are some interesting pictures I’ve collected over the past few months.

Road sign on the way to the Selangor National State Park.. not very encouraging

Since Win Yew didn’t play his guitar anymore, I decided to trade my magic cards for his guitar πŸ˜€

Did you know that Ramly made condoms too? Hahaha

I encounter 11.34 in with my touch and go card.. evil

Who would’ve thought you needed to learn how to be sad?

Great news! It’s that time of the year again, where I get to share my (crappy) music with the rest of the world! Well not really the world, but KL :p

A few weeks ago, I came across the doppelganger open mic website and emailed Jaz asking if I could perform for the open mic at the next gig. And so I got the reply (yes), and to cut the short story short, I’ll performing (hopefully my hair will be out of mid-length crisis by then :P) at:

So yeah, even if you guys aren’t coming to watch me perform, come for Jerome Kugan. That dude is awesome. I’ll be having another gig coming up the following week, I’ll keep this blog posted.

All Time Low

You know the period of time after a haircut, when your hair reaches the length that is impossible to manage? It’s too long to spike up, yet too short to be left alone to fall down. And no matter which way you style it, you still end up looking like you got hit in the face with an ugly stick?

Yeah, I’m going through that right now.

So you say, how do you solve that problem? Well, from the following chart which I made up:

we can see that I have two options- cut my hair again, thus resetting the graph, or just wait it out till my hair grows longer. Since I’m not in the mood for a haircut, I’ll be keeping it long again. How long will it take? Well it depends on whether the hair growing tips on Wikihow work or not. Just kidding.

Anyways, you can see that you can’t keep your hair too long or you’ll end up looking like an unkempt beggar in petaling street.

Hope this post saves some lives out there! (note: this chart doesn’t apply to girls- they can usually carry off all sorts of different hair-lengths)

(EDIT : i just realized that this chart is for me, and not everybody- some people look really good with short, next to bald hair i.e. Scofield (right Vanessa?!) and some people look good with really long hair as well haha, so this chart can’t apply to everybody, but it can be used as a rough guideline- the first low will be the ‘mid-life’ of your hair where it’s too long/short, and the second low will be there only if you don’t look good with long hair. Wow, long edit :p)

Traffic cops are a menace.

Traffic cops are a fucking menace. Never in my life have I ever exclaimed to myself, “thank God there was a traffic cop!” When are they ever helpful? NEVER!

Why are they there to replace perfectly working lights? I understand the reasoning for them to be there when the lights are broken. But when they’re not?! Since when can a man do a machine’s job better? The fucking machine was built for this very purpose. A machine that doesn’t know anything other than to regulate traffic flow. Its very reason for existing is to guide cars! And this cop can do it better?!

It would be funny to see a traffic light kill a traffic cop. Even if I was the one who rammed into the traffic light and made it fall onto the policeman. Serves him right for trying to ‘ease traffic flow’.

Everyone knows that traffic police are rookies anyways. These guys should be given better things to do– like patrolling the streets looking for mat rempits to strangle rather than wasting their time breathing in carbon monoxide in the middle of rush hour traffic.

I realized I wrote about traffic cops awhile ago as well. See how much they infuriate me?! Even now, 5 months later, things haven’t changed.

Dreams are meant to be shared.

And so the other night I had this crazy ass dream and I managed to remember most of it! Since I’m bad with words, I decided to do some illustrations to go along with them.

Yeap you guessed right, there is a part 2 that I will post when I’m done editing. πŸ˜›
