A series of unfortunate events.

Today was a pretty eventful day.

I took my car for servicing in the morning. Some of my speakers are busted.

I had to go to work (not for the whole day, but still!).

My atm card got stuck in the machine– and came out a few minutes later. (I panicked for a moment)

A friend of mine had his house ransacked. But the robbers were pretty stupid– they left 2 laptops, an iPod and a ps3 alone, while rummaging through the whole house and only taking some alcohol.

I heard another story from another friend: his uncle gave a robber a cash check. The robber tried to cash it in at a bank..and he got arrested on the spot. LOL

I watched Beowulf in the cinema and it was probably one of the worst movie experiences I’ve ever had. Some asshole sat next to me and throughout the whole show he kept talking out loud! To his friend! Who was seated a some couple of seats away! Behind him! Whenever some titties came on screen or something exciting happened, he would go ape shit and mutter some unintelligible sentences. I wonder what would happen if he ever saw a real girl naked in front of him. He would probably die or something. And he wasn’t even sitting in the right seat! And to top it off- he was one smelly fucker. People like him don’t deserve to watch movies in cinemas. In fact, they don’t even deserve to watch movies.

One more person to add to the list of people I hate.

But Beowulf was a pretty good movie. The graphics were amazing (though some parts reminded me of Shrek), and storyline just passable. But it could have done with more action sequences. But it was an enjoyable movie. Some parts were censored in the cinema though. Gotta get the dvd version to see what was cut out.

On the way home I encountered another bunch of mat rempits. Doing ‘superman’ and weaving in and out of traffic.

Its been awhile since I’ve had any awesome dreams. Work is stressful like a motherfucker. It’s still the same, it hasn’t changed, but I don’t know why it’s gotten harder. And is it so hard to learn from mistakes? Fuck! I thought humans learn that fire is hot by touching it. They never make the same mistake again. Maybe I should bring a fucking torch to work and burn some fingers each time someone sends me a half-assed done scene.

Prawn Mee/ Piracy (wow they rhyme!)

I used to love eating prawn mee when I was younger. Back when I used to live in Happy Garden, I would go to this prawn mee stall nearby Pearl Point Hotel every weekend. I haven’t been there in awhile, but it’s one of the best prawn mee places I’ve ever been to.

I haven’t had prawn mee in ages. I don’t particularly miss it. But it’s one of the better types of soup noodles you can get. It’s tastier than most fish ball soup noodles. There’s a really great fish ball noodle place in Jalan Loke Yew.

Everybody has their own preferences. Some of the food I like might taste like shit to you. Not literally I hope, cos not alot of things taste like shit.

But you know what rhymes with shit? Hypocrite.

There are alot of hypocrites in the world. But there are some that annoy me more than others. Today we’ll talk about the people who look down on people who use fake LV (or other similar branded) bags- yet use a pirated version of photoshop to modify pictures of themselves. Talk about hypocrisy!

If you’re dissing someone for using a fake bag cos they can’t afford it, and modifying pictures of your camwhoring photographs with a pirated version of Photoshop- you should be ashamed of yourself.

If you want to do that, stick with GIMP. or Paint.

“People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.”

(Adobe Photoshop CS3 – $999.00 (for the full extended version, standard/elements/upgrade versions are cheaper)
LV bag – $900+ (depending on design, some even cost less than that)
So you could say they cost roughly about the same. I think if you’re rolling with a LV bag, buying an original version photoshop should be no problem for you.)

4.5 Pictures

So it’s been awhile since I’ve posted any pictures, so I figured I’d spice things up here. And I’m trying as hard as I can to do the one post every 2 days but it’s hard! Once I stop something, I find it hard to pick up again. So I’m trying to get into the habit of doing useful things: writing, and drawing.

I find it so easy to make empty promises as well. Especially when I’m making them to myself. Fuck!

Procrastination. Another bad habit to get rid off. Ever since college I’ve been trying to get rid of it. I do it for like one week, but then go back to my old self again. Late nights, 24 hour days, sleepless nights, whatever you wanna call it. Not fun at all.

Working life is reminding me of the last few weeks of college- working non-stop, deadlines just around the corner, and people who don’t make your life any easier.

My car came back beautiful:

Good job workshop!

I bought an mp3 modulator thingy the other day. Now I can listen to my mp3 player through my car radio! I’ve saved a few hundred on a new cd player. Awesome. If you look carefully, you can see that I’m listening to Four Year Strong, because that’s what real men listen to. They’re probably one of the fucking best bands out there right now, and if you disagree you’re probably deaf- or just not manly enough.

I’ve never listened to a band that pwned this much before.

Jason said in my new display pic I look like Rick Moranis


So I was supposed to write something below this..

It’s been ages since I last wrote something down here. I’ve been busy with work (as usual).
Only time I get to unwind is when I get home and during the weekends. Where I mostly do nothing productive, because it feels so good to not do anything productive when you’ve been spending the whole week being productive at work.

I bought a new sketchbook, so I should be drawing more. Been ages since I’ve drawn or painted anything. I use the mouse too much at home (playing dota lol). Going jamming tomorrow. Potential new band mate? I don’t know.

There’s so many things I want to do, but I haven’t. Yet.

I seem to have lost focus in life. I might be spiritually dead too. The body is as weak as its mind.

You don’t deserve to be called a lady, so I’ll call you a whore
(james write it down, new lyrics for S!TA)

RIP Oink

Alive and well,

I am.

Been spending the past few days as a traveler. Or a nomad as I like to call myself (it sounds way cooler).
The car should be ready in a few days. Then I can cruise around inviting more reckless people to drive into my vehicle 😀

No I’m just kidding. I like cars with symmetrical bumpers. Yes Andre, despite what you think, I do.

I facebook alot on my mobile phone now! It’s pretty entertaining if you have nothing better to do while taking a dump. So if you leave me messages or write on my wall- I can reply! Haha.

Ever wonder why it seems like everybody is born in October? I guess the new year really puts parents in the mood for lovemaking.

5.40am, and I’m still awake, rereading old entries on my old blog.

just the thought of her alone sends my heart beat racing..i wish this night could last forever/ her palm pressed against mine..fingers intertwined/ i could go on driving forever, just me and her..just me and her

Dreams are fucking amazing.

We don’t need the moon.

Earlier today when I was driving my little sister home, I was having trouble seeing the road because it was night time and it was raining. And also for some reason my windscreen is never truly clear- no matter how much I clean it, its as clear as shit stained glass whenever cars on the opposite turn on their lights. Especially those assholes with bright ass white HID lights, or those that drive with their high beams on.

That got me thinking. Why do we have night time at all? You know what? They should just do away with night. Someone in the future should come up with some way to make sure we have daylight all the time. Life would be so much better!

Forget romantic candlelit dinners on the beach under the starry night–
we wouldn’t have crimes anymore! People could walk around any time of the day without fear of being robbed around the corner, cos they can see clearly in the daytime. People wouldn’t find night shift jobs so intimidating anymore! We wouldn’t need outdoor lights! That would save half of the world’s electricity usage!

And like Daniel Tosh said in one of his jokes (daylight saving time)- guys who go clubbing, you get to take the girl you’ve been pumping drinks into all night out into the daylight! This would prevent sexually transmitted diseases! “I’ll see you in standard time where you belong!”

Life would be very different indeed.

I’m so controversial

If God was so powerful, how come he just doesn’t remove the evil from this world?
I am sure he could crush Satan with his fingertips.

Why do we have to ask for forgiveness when we all know He’s going to forgive us?
Why didn’t he rebuild the world when Adam and Eve sinned? He could have easily just wiped out everything and made everything again in seconds.

Why did he let us choose when he gets upset when we do not choose him?

Why do I ask all these questions?

Grass is green

Every time I drive by grass cutters, I get scared. But only if my windows are down. Because I always imagine a piece of stray grass flying through the air, into my car and slicing my eye causing me to go blind and crash the car when I panic because all I see is red in one eye. Why do you think they have to wear long sleeves, a face mask and goggles when cutting grass? Flying grass is lethal, that’s why!

But why does freshly cut grass smell so good? Why does it even smell in the first place? Is it bleeding? Does grass bleed? I don’t know. But all I know is that freshly cut grass smells so good, and grass cutters need to be heavily armored when working.

Shower heads

The only reason shower heads have settings is because girls use them. Seriously. I mean when have you ever felt the need to change the settings on your shower head when you were taking a shower? Never!

This is what and all a guy will ever need:

The standard setting for all shower heads and those with no other settings. Nothing fancy here, just a normal shower.

These are the other modes offered by some shower heads:

High-pressured shower

Alright some people might like it, but I don’t. The shower head in my toilet was set to this setting when I went in today (which inspired me to write this post), and it felt like I was ripping my skin off! The water actually hurt! Now I can’t see another situation where water flowing at high-speeds is needed (besides the dam..well come to think of it, it is like a dam. Damn.).

We don’t need this-

low pressured flowing water in the center and higher pressure water around the sides. What the hell is this mode for? For getting girls off of course! They’ll use the low pressure water first and slowly build up and then bam! They finish off with the high-pressured water from the sides.

And then there’s

I myself don’t even know what that is. But I’m sure it would work pretty well. There’s like high-pressure, low-pressure, zig-zag streams, spirals, the whole Giant, and a whole load more shit. Definitely not for (most) guys. I speak on behalf of the manly men out there.

Have you guys ever seen the ad which looks something like this?

We all know what she’s really ‘shh’-ing about
This is based on a real ad! Seriously! I’ve spotted it a couple of times on some major highways. If I ever get the chance, I’ll get a picture of it. I mean, how subtle can you get?

P.S. Lame mspaint drawings tonight cos I felt like doing lame mspaint drawings.

Sometimes I feel like..

Harry Potter

I wonder about my parents. What were they like when they were young? (because they’re still alive now)

Was your mom miss popular back in high school?
Were all the friends she hung out with bimbos?
Were they the smart nerdy types?
Did she go out partying every weekend?
Did your dad play Dungeons & Dragons?
Was he a pot head?
Was he in a band?
How did they meet?
Were they romantic?

I don’t know where to go with this, maybe I’ll revisit this post in the future :p

* * * * *

Awhile time ago, James tagged me with this quiz, and now I’ve finally come around to doing it. I think I’ve done it a long time ago on my geocities blog, but I don’t remember, so it doesn’t count. Here we go!

1. Open your library. (iTunes, Windows Media Player, iPod, etc.)
2. Turn on ’shuffle’.
3. Press ‘play’.
4. For every section, type the song that’s playing.
5. When you’re on to a new question, press ‘next’on your player.
6. Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool by hiding your Hilary Duff and Westlife songs.

Opening credits: Hawthorne Heights – Screenwriting An Apology
Man this song would be so much better for the end song: “Exit now/credits rolling” haha

Waking up: I Am Ghost – Beyond The Hourglass
This would be better for a funeral song..why am I getting all the wrong songs? “My heart still beats outside this/Please put the final nail into this coffin/Ten-century has closed”

First day of school: As Cities Burn – Of Want And Nothing : The Misery That Kills
“I will hang my life in the space between the noose and your neck/I won’t let you die just yet” School wasn’t that depressing for me! In fact quite the opposite.. maybe my high school crush.. hmm haha

Falling in love: Taking Back Sunday – Lost And Found
Finally a song which fits! “Have you seen the girl/With my heart on her sweater?”

Fight song: Straylight Run – Tool Sheds And Hot Tubs
“Do you think that this could work out?/ Do you think you could come around?/ Do you think that this could work out again?/ I don’t.”
I guess this one fits too

Breaking up: Poison the Well – Turn Down Elliot
“I’ll hang neck tight from anything for you/ Skies most wanted good-byes/ You missed my face again”
So tragic :'(

Prom: The Hunt For Yoshi – Ride The Wings Of Pestilence
There’s no lyrics for this instrumental cover of a FFTL song..but the original song has the lyrics “I’ll wear your skin as a suit/ Pretend to be you/ Your friends will like you more then they used to”

Life is okay: Powerspace – Prologue: Adam Beckett
“And one day someone spoke inside of me/ Young man rise and make your mark/ So today I will be free”

Mental breakdown: Theme song to the Spider Lilies movie.
No idea who wrote it or what it’s about, ID3 tags are in Chinese and its an Instrumental. It’s a haunting song anyway. I can imagine listening to it and going insane o.o

Driving: Dashboard Confessional – Hands Down
“These hearts they race” LOL. Love this song anyway, and yeah it would fit a driving scene. I can picture it in my head!

Flashback: Yourcodenameis:Milo – I’m Impressed
“Congratulations, you’re on time/ Congratulations, you’re on time/ Tonight’s your night but it will pass/ You never thought that this could last”

Getting back together: The Used – Alone This Holiday
“Maybe light a candle/ Don’t say a prayer me/ Feel alone cos I’m gone/ I left you, make Christmas your own/ You throw the thought of us away/ You’ll be alone this holiday” Not really huh?

Wedding: Papa Roach – Crash
“I refuse to be your victim i refuse to be your slave/ I keep on burning my bridges/ I keep on fucking up everything”

Birth of first child: Saosin – 3rd Measurement In C
“Tango with daddy, and separate only/ Smile my only/ Rights of passage!”

Final battle: October Fall – It Was Summer.. (Baby Steps)
“You say you’d never let this go/ I say we forget what we know/ Keep taking baby steps/ We’re still so far ahead”

Death scene: Senses Fail – Buried A Lie
“I’ll catch the murderer/ And send him away/ I’ll get the evidence/ From your last day” lol

Funeral song: Lostprophets – Last Train Home
“To every broken heart in here/ Love was once a part, but now it’s disappeared/ She told me that it’s all a part of the choices that you make/ Even when you think you’re right/ You have to give to take” Damn, this song is sad 🙁

Ending credits: Dashboard Confessional – Screaming Infidelities
You know this song is so good, I’ll just post all of the lyrics up :p

I’m missing your bed,
I never sleep
Avoiding the spots where we’d have to speak
And this bottle of beast is taking me home.
I’m cuddling close to blankets and sheets
You’re not alone and you’re not discreet.
You make sure I know who’s taking you home.
I’m reading your note over again,
There’s not a word that I comprehend,
except when you signed it:
“I’ll love you always and forever”
Well as for now I’m gonna hear the saddest songs,
and sit alone and wonder,
how you’re making out.
But as for me I wish that I was anywhere…
With anyone…
making out.
I’m missing your laugh,
how did it break?
And when did your eyes
begin to look fake?
I hope you’re as happy as your pretending
I’m cuddling close to blanket and sheets
I am alone in my defeat
I wish I knew you were safely at home
I’m missing your bed, I never sleep.
Avoiding the spots where we’d have to speak.
And this bottle of Beast is taking me home.
Well as for now I’m gonna hear the saddest songs,
and sit alone and wonder…
how you’re making out.
But as for me I wish that I was anywhere…
With anyone…
making out
Your hair.
It’s everywhere.
Screaming infidelities.
And taking its wear.
Your hair.
It’s everywhere.
Screaming infidelities.
And taking its wear.
Your hair.
It’s everywhere.
Screaming infidelities.
And taking its wear.
Your hair.
It’s everywhere.
Screaming infidelities.
And taking its wear.

I tag whoever wants to do it cos when I write names nobody does it anyway :p
