Screaming School Girls

My legs are totally aching right now. The cycling at my during the chalet and the football I played at the BBQ just now are the main cause. I hope I don't get leg cramps later on when I sleep.

Before today I can't even remember the last time I touched a football. I don't know if my skills are gone yet, but I'm sure I've lost touch already. It's not that I've retired and stopped playing football or anything, it's just that opportunties to play keep getting lesser and lesser.

I just read Xiaxue's latest blog about the Channel 8 drama, "The Champion" and it's totally hiliarious! Wispy Fiona and flat chested Jeanette. Go and read it. LoL~

Christopher got eliminated in Singapore Idol today. As much as I want Sylvester The Act Cute Poser out of the competition, I'm not surprised that he's still in. We all know that a large number of his support is made up of screaming schoolgirls, but NEVER EVER underestimate the power of the SCREAMING SCHOOLGIRLS.

Some years ago I was at Suntec on a Saturday afternoon. I was at the top floor waiting for my brother to finish his piano when I noticed a large gathering at the ground floor. The Moffatts were going to have a peformance!

Yeah, remember them? They're a bunch of Has-Beens now, but they were really popular back then. It was no surprise then that 99% of the crowd that gathered, numbering around 200, were all girls. Anyway, I decided to stick around wait for them to appear, since seeing a celebrity in person doesn't happen that often to me.

After about 15 minutes, they appeared from Tower Records at took the escalator down to the ground floor.

That's when it all happened.

All 200 of the girls started screaming. And it wasn't just a simple scream of surprise. It was an ear-splitting scream of hysteria. I couldn't hear anything else and my ear drums felt like they were going to burst. I thought the screams would die down but after 10 minutes, the screams didn't get any softer. In fact they got louder and louder. To the point that the top floor literally started shaking! At that point a lot of people, including myself, immediately stepped away from the railing. But I could still feel the tremors in the ground. I couldn't take the screaming anymore, so I got the hell out of there before my ears started bleeding and the entire building collapsed.

Now, presume they numbered 10000 instead of 200. Imagine the amout of damage they'd cause. Their screams alone would be enough to bring down an entire building and cause permanent hearing loss to everyone within a 5km radius. If you ask me, SCREAMING SCHOOLGIRLS should be classified as Weapons Of Mass Destruction. Not to mention they come equppied with lots of money (from Daddy's wallet), all at your disposal. You could sell tissue that ______ (insert any F4 member's name here) used to wipe his ass with for $50, and they'll still buy it. 5 pieces somemore.

So you can see why Sylvester Sim is still in the competition with the backing of the SCREAMING SCHOOLGIRLS. All I can hope is that Daddy will soon discover their huge phone bill and ban them from using their handphones. WAHAHAHA!

Okie, I'd better end this entry right here before some Sylvester fan gets pissed and sneaks behind me to scream in my ears.

ARSEne Wanker The Sore Loser

I did an "Are You A Blogaholic?" test and here's what I got.

Your Score: 40 / 100
You are a casual weblogger. You only blog when you have nothing better to do, which is not very often. There's nothing wrong with that. But if you'd post a little more often, you'd make your readers very happy.

* These results are just for fun. Do not sue me. Have a sense of humour.

Hmm… Not quite true I feel. I blog because it’s quite fun and I do make an effort to blog; when there's something to blog about.


I'm still savoring Man Utd's victory over Arsenal. Victory is sweet! I read Arsene Wanker's comments in today's New Paper and he is such a SORE LOSER.

"AS expected of a poor loser, Arsene Wenger has accused Manchester United of being irresponsible.

The Arsenal manager said they did not play to the true spirit of the game.

Just days after the Gunners lost 2-0 at Old Trafford, Wenger went one step further by saying the Red Devils have marred English soccer's image.

'This game (was) watched in 75 countries,' he said, 'and English football had the opportunity to let football talk on the was a bad promotion for English football.'

'When football is not played in the right spirit, you cannot agree with it.'

Then he goes on to blame the Man Utd players, the referee for his team's loss. Yeah yeah.. blame everyone for your team's inability to score. I think he should be reminded of how his players totally destroyed the spirit of the game with their lack of sportsmanship last season before he starts pointing his fingers. Wayne Rooney diving in the game? Kolo Toure did the exact same thing in the 88th minute. It was just too bad he coujld't act as well as his good friend Robert Pires. And your players throwing food at other people, Mr Wanker? Tsk tsk.. It just shows the level of maturity of your side. Either way the fact remains, Man Utd scored 2 more goals than your side and Henry was reduced to being a spectator. So just shut up loser.

Yes, you're right. This dude really hates Arsenal.


Alright enough of the football talk. Tomorrow I'll be going for a class chalet at East Coast! I hope it'll be still as fun as before. Most of the time a few of my classmates will end up semi-drunk in the middle of the night. I don't drink, so I'll just sit there and laugh as they get stoned.

I remember that time we all went night cycling, slightly more than 10 of us, and we cycled for 2 hours to all the places near East Coast Park. It was fun, but the seats of those rented bicycles can really cause your ass to hurt like hell.

I can't think of anything else to blog, so I'll go back to playing my Winning Eleven 8 now. Ah.. Manchester City is up next. =D

I Love You Forever?

I was at someone else's blog recently and on her tagboard, her boyfriend left lots of tags. There was the usual "I love you" tags, but there was one that said something like, "I love you forever" and another saying he was going to marry her.

I don't believe in saying things like "I love you forever and ever and ever" or saying that you'll marry someone when you haven't even proposed yet, so I left a tag saying that he shouldn't say those things he didn't know the future. Now the dude got pissed and said that he already had determined his future to marry her. I just replied and said that if he knew the future, good for him, but I didn't believe in making empty promises.

(By the way, about this couple, the girl is in her mid-teens and they're only celebrating their 1st month anniversary. You can see why I thought the guy was getting ahead of himself.)

Sometimes I wonder if people really know what they mean when they say, "I love you forever". That statement is literally a commitment because of the word forever. Forever is a very big word. It means eternally, which is well... a very very very very long time.

Guy: "I love you forever."
Gal: "How do you know that for sure?"

How will you answer that? Do you know for sure that you'll love her forever? Words must be backed up by actions. Are you certain that 5 years from now, you'll still be together? Forever is way longer than 5 years. If you're not sure and you can't back it up, then you're making an empty promise.

One might feel for certain that you both will be together forever and that's why you may say that statement, but everyone knows that when you're in love, your judgment is clouded by emotion. The heart can't think, it can only feel.

I remember making a stupid promise to a girl that I'd wait one year for her. And that in one year, I'd go after her again. Well, after a year, the feeling died and I realised how stupid I was, making an empty promise. But looking back to the time I made the promise, I had felt so sure that I would be able to keep that promise.

I feel that saying "I love you forever" should only be said when you're getting married. Why?

Guy: "I love you forever."
Gal: "How do you know that for sure?"
Guy: "To prove it, I'm willing spend the rest of my life with only you, no matter what happens."

When you get married, you are able to back up that statement with an action. It means you love your partner to the point that you'll give him/her the rest of your life. Marriage is THE ULTIMATE commitment. When you get married, you are actually saying that you love this person so much that you are willing commit the rest of your life with him/her no matter what happens. Like the wedding vow goes:

"... to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish 'till death do us part."

That commitment is no small commitment at all. It's for the rest of your freakin life! It isn't for 5, 10 or even 20 years. It's a commitment until the day you breathe your last breath.

So if you want to say, "I love you forever", I can't see any another way to back those words up other than to back it up with your life.

This is the first week of my holidays and already I'm starting to get bored. Yesterday I just stayed home and played Winning Eleven 8 all the way. But now, I feel like doing something else. Like watch a good movie or something. I could ask my super lovable girlfriend out, but she's having an exam tomorrow, so I don't want to disturb her.

I'm finding it hard to blog nowadays, particularly because I've been staying at home more. When you don't go out, nothing happens and so there's nothing to blog about. Right now, all that's happening at home is my dog that's sleeping beside me. Even when I call out his name he's too sleepy to respond.

Bah.. I'm so bored. Anyone got any suggestions for me to kill boredom?

Manchester United 2 - 0 Arsenal

Manchester United 2 - 0 Arsenal !!


Arsenal, you got your asses handed to you today. Sure, 49 games unbeaten is a feat. But you've only won the Premiership during that run. Man Utd didn't go unbeaten but won the famous treble in 1999. Arsenal the team of the 00's? Man Utd won the titles in 2000 and 2002, what domination? Did I forget to mention that Arsenal didn't beat Man Utd during their 49 game run. Both games ended in a draw. So if you say Arsenal are a better team.. well.. you left your ass at Old Trafford.

I'll just end by saying this. Write Manchester United off at your own peril. Just be careful because you might just get your ass handed to you too.

The Best Football Game Ever

Yeah! My exams are over. Not that it feels any different. Before exams or after exams, it always feels the same in my course. That's how slack it is.

Anyway, today's Internet Computing paper didn't go to well. It was more a damage limitation exercise than trying to pass the paper. You can't blame me totally though, because our IC teacher he ah.. well, he sucks. Most of our practicals were spent copying codes that we didn't understand. And whenever there were errors we'd call him to for help only to find out that the teacher himself didn't know how to solve the error. Oh well, the paper is over already, so whatever will be, will be.

If you noticed I haven't been blogging as much as before, it's because of this:

Yep, it's the latest Winning Eleven 8(WE8)! Forget about the lousy Fifa series and it's crappy gameplay. The Winning Eleven series is THE best football game in the world and in the history of gaming. Winning Eleven beats Fifa hands down in terms of graphics, realistic gameplay, tactics and computer AI. Unlike Fifa where you can practically "pattern" your way to goal, beating the computer in WE8 requires tactics and skill.

What I like in WE8, is that it requires much much more tactics and skill are involved. For example, if you don't pick up and running man and choose to commit your defender, you can bet that the computer will pick the open player with a through pass.

So never buy another Fifa game again, it's not worth your money. Alright, I've got to beat Newcastle now, so I'll end here. =)

Rocker? More Like Rock-A-Bye-Baby..

I haven't blogged in 2 days but it feels so long. Maybe it's because the past 2 entries have just been copying and pasting stuff. About the previous entry, remember you've got to check the "Deep File Scan" option when you scan if not the SearchMiracle will not be completely removed and will try to install itself everytime your computer restarts. That spyware is just like Smeagol.. Sneaky sneaky.

Today I had my Systems Security exam. I actually wanted to study at around 3am last night, but I fell asleep all the way through to 745am! My paper was at 9 and it takes an hour to travel to school. So I bathed and all, and then left at 820. I always feel that the last minute studying on the bus is the most effective one, so when I got to the exam hall at 930, I was feeling quite alright. After the paper YF, TS, Leonard and I went to play pool.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention one thing.


I guess his supporters grew a brain overnight and realised how crappy his singing was. Or maybe they just ran out of money. Hahaha. Either way, he's out, and the world is a much better place. =)

So who do you all support in Singapore Idol? For me I don't support anyone because I think they all are mediocre singers but one person who surely won't get my vote is this guy.

At first I supported him a little, but after a while I didn't like him. Why? Because I think he's fake. I mean, come on, since when have there been any rockers in Singapore? I know there are, but they are very few. And most of them are Malays (I'm not being racist here), so a chinese rocker guy? That's something I've never seen before.

He's just wanting to associate himself with rock since that's the music that most youths listen to. If he was a rocker, why didn't he display the wild and crazy side that rockers usually have right from his first appearance? Why didn't he do the "Rock On" sign? The rockers I saw in World Idol and American Idol both declared they were rockers right from the start without any hesitation.

Secondly, what's up with that picture?

A rocker? Looks more like acting cute to attract schoolgirls to me. A rocker doesn't make little cutsy faces like pouting your lips and winking your eyes. Stuff like that belongs with Hamtaro, Happy Tree Friends, The Teletubbies and Fiona Xie.

= = =

Seriously, let's leave the "acting cute" to the professionals.

Real rockers look like this:

Lenny Kravitz

Eddie Van Halen

Well, you may agree or disagree with what I've said. It's still up to you whether you want to vote for him or not. It's your money after all. But if you ask me, I think giving the 50 cents to me would be much better. =)

The Best Spyware Remover!

I've finally found the solution to remove the irritating SearchMiracle spyware. It creates links to the searchmiracle website by making hyperlinks through certain keywords in the websites you visit. Words like business, games, mba and sex all become hyperlinks. In addition to that, pop-ups keep appearing even if you're offline and it installs a hijacker toolbar to your Internet Explorer. Bloody Irritating. Here's more information from Giant Labs.


Alias: Elite Bar, Search Miracle, SearchMiracle, EliteBar

Threat type: Adware - Adware is generally software that displays advertisements. Some advertisers may covertly install adware on your system and generate a stream of unsolicited advertisements that can clutter your desktop and affect your productivity. The advertisements may also contain pornographic or other material that you might find inappropriate. The extra processing required to track you or to display advertisements can tax your computer and hurt your system performance.

Threat category: Browser Plug-in - A browser plug-in is an application that can be installed within a user's web browser. Plug-ins can come in the form of a toolbar that is included in your web browser or a search or navigation feature to extra task buttons on the browser. Although most plug-ins are designed to perform necessary functions, many plug-ins are harmful to you computer because they have complete access to your web browser and can modify, spy and redirect any task you perform.

Threat risk: High Risk
High risk threats typically are remotely exploitable vulnerabilities, which can lead to system compromise. Successful exploitation does not normally require any interaction. May open up communication ports, use polymorphic tactics, stealth installations, and/or anti-spy counter measures. May us a security flaw in the operating system to gain access to your computer.

Description: Adds a search hijacker toolbar to Internet Explorer called Elite Bar.

SearchMiracle also displays popup advertisements.

SearchMiracle.EliteBar hijacks Internet Explorers home page and search settings.

The website does not have a privacy policy or EULA to date.

Advise: Remove This is a very high risk threat and should be removed immediately as to prevent harm to your computer or your privacy.

So what's the solution? It's the Giant Antispyware! To download it just click on the link, and then type what country you're from and how you heard about the product. That's it.

So far it's the best Spyware remover I've tried. Better than any of the other spyware and adware removers like Spybot, Ad aware.. etc, which all failed to remove SearchMiracle on my computer. Giant Antispyware will also set up a firewall of some sort on your computer which will notify you if some program is trying to install itself onto your browser.

Once you've installed it, to completely remove SearchMiracle, go under Scan Options and check all the options, including Deep File Scan. It'll take quite long to scan this time because of the Deep File Scan option, but it'll throughly clean your system. You'll be surprised at how much Spyware and Adware is in your computer. After the scan ends, it'll ask you what you'd like to do with the spyware found. Just select "Remove" for each of the spyware and watch the program do the rest. =)

There's lots but it's worth your time. =)

O.J.> Radio interview quote from Marine Corps General Reinwald and a female radio host. He wants to host some boy scouts at the training center for some practise excercises. As follows
FEMALE INTERVIEWER>: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?
GENERAL REINWALD>: We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER>: Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?
GENERAL REINWALD>: I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER>: Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?
GENERAL REINWALD>: I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER>: But you're equipping them to become violent killers.
GENERAL REINWALD>: Well, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?
The radio went silent and the interview ended. You gotta love the Marines!

After reading all this, there's only one word can describe it. LOL~

T - Square!

Wohoo! My exam is in 9 hours and I haven't studied yet! Crap. I'm even here blogging away. I couldn't help it. The OC.. no, Mischa Barton was on TV! I couldn't possibly miss that.

The bad thing now is, I'm starting to feel sleepy. I feel tempted to go to the exam tomorrow with whatever is in my brain right now, but I must.. fight.. sleep...

Right now I'm listening to T-Square, a band which my friend rates on the same level as Dream Theater, and I agree with him. They are GOOD! And the song Samurai Metropolis just kicks ass.

Looking at this picture you can tell they are group of old guys with lots of experience. They look a bit gay too, with the bassist (the guy in red) putting both arms around the other 2 band members. Hahaha..

Alright, alright, that's enough for today about people who look and act gay. I'd better start studying now.

Filled With Consternation

I'm currently watching Singapore Idol now and I am APPALLED. Appalled means "be filled with consternation or dismay"; consternation meaning "A state of paralyzing dismay" and dismay meaning, "To destroy the courage or resolution of by exciting dread or apprehension". So in other words watching Singapore Idol has left me paralyzed with dread.

Why am I so appalled?

Because of the last 2 performances. Of course one of them was Jerry Ong, who's still in the competition thanks to his bunch of tone-deaf, stupid but RICH supporters. I'm thinking of how to describe his performance, but his performance was so so bad, that I can't find the words to describe it. Okay, well maybe there is a word to describe it.


The 2nd person that has touched me tonight is Christopher Lee. Man, I don't know what the heck he was singing. At one point those falsettos were really starting to piss me off. I think Dick Lee said it best.

"Don't pick songs that you cannot handle. You should just stick to Ba Ba Black Sheep."

Well said, Mr Dick Lee. Finally you've said something wise.

At least the show didn't totally disappoint me as the final performance by Taufik was something that I enjoyed. But the fact that the show, week after week, is filled with mediocre performances (and the fact the Jerry Ong is still in) brings me to the conclusion that the whole show is a total waste of time.

Then why am I watching it? Well.. That's because watching Singapore Idol, or doing anything else in that matter, is better than studying. =) I hate studying.

PS: I feel it's harsh calling people gay when we don't know for sure that they are, so I changed the title of the previous entry.

Designer Guys Gays Guys

Tomorrow's my programming paper and I haven't studied! Crap. So why am I here blogging away? Well it's because I'm real good at procrastinating. Right now I'm watching Designer Guys on Channel 5.

It's showing weekdays 12:30pm, Channel 5.

Those guys are good,I tell you. If you haven't watched it before it's one of those shows where they do a makeover and re-decorate a room in your house. The way they re-decorate is better than any other show I've ever seen. They not only remake the room, but they change the entire atmosphere with lighting and even go into the smallest details like making your dogs are comfortable with the new setting.

And I have to say I not only enjoy the show because of the way they remake the room, but because the guy on the left is gay, or acts like one. No, I'm not gay and I am not turned on by men, but it's because the way he acts sometimes cracks me up. You know, he'll act real sissy and say things like,

"Awww.. I'm feeling a group hug coming up!"

Then again, both of them might be gay, how would I know? But if they really are, it would really be a waste. 2 good-looking guys who have their own show, are rich and know how to decorate your home, I'm sure they'd be any girl's dream man.

Thanks everyone who greeted me a Happy Birthday! It's nice to have people remember you on the day you were born. =) Speaking of birthdays, it's my dog's birthday too! He's 5 years old and 35 dog years old. We don't really know the exact day he was born, but he was born in the month of October. So..

Happy Birthday Rainbow!

Next time if I manage to upload pictures onto my blog, I'll post a picture of him.

Today I went for a sushi buffet at Sakae Sushi! Yep, I love to eat sushi. I went with my super lovable girlfriend, Sheena and F|sh. We usually have this sushi buffet outing once a month, but due to everybody's busy schedule, today's buffet was the first one in around 2 months. And I was ready to eat the entire restaurant down! Alright, not the whole restaurant. Just 15 plates of sushi. Of course eating 30 pieces of sushi is enough to leave anyone stuffed for the rest of the day, so here I am happily blogging away. Ugh.. I think there's still some salmon stuck in between my teeth.

Anyway, I was reading Joe's blog and he mentions a story that took place on a man's wedding day. Here's an excerpt from the story. Go to his blog to see the rest.

This is a true story about a recent wedding that took place at Clemson University. It was in the local newspaper and even Jay Leno mentioned it. It was a huge wedding with about 300 guests. After the wedding, at the reception, the groom got up on stage with a microphone to talk to the crowd.

He said he wanted to thank everyone for coming, many from long distances, to support them at their wedding. He especially wanted to thank the bride's and his family and to thank his new father-in-law for providing such a lavish reception.

As a token of his deep appreciation he said he wanted to give everyone a special gift just from him. So taped to the bottom of everyone's chair, including the wedding party, was a manila envelope. He said this was his gift to everyone, and asked them to open their envelope.

Dang, that guy sure had some guts in doing what he did. And I'm sure his revenge was real sweet. What would you do if you were in his shoes?

I think if it was me, I wouldn't go so far as to shame my fiancee, the woman I love, so I guess I'll just settle the whole matter privately. But, one thing I'll surely do is to beat up the best man until he can't walk anymore. Haha.

The Death Of Superman

Wohoo! Finally submitted my TOR on Monday! Feeling much better now that I've got nothing on my back. Although the exams are still to come, I'm going to take a few days off to relax. Like today! I've spent the whole day playing on my Playstation. Slashing and cutting people in Way of The Samurai 2. In fact I played so much that I'm having a bit of a backache now. =( Anyway, now that I have much more free time, I can blog more. =) The only thing is, I'm feeling a bit lazy to blog nowadays.

Today I just heard that Christopher Reeve had passed away at the age of 52. I was surprised when I heard the news because I thought he was coping fine despite his paralysis after the his accident. Just a few days earlier, I read an entry of Maddox's on Christopher Reeve. Take a look.

Here's an excerpt:

Christopher Reeve is was an asshole.

Why is Reeve an asshole?

Simple: because he's selfish. Reeve didn't give a shit about paralysis before his accident, but now that he's paralyzed, suddenly he opens up a paralysis foundation and cares about the plight of cripples? Where was his foundation in '95 when he played the role of a man with spinal cord injury? Sure, some of you might argue that he's doing a good thing by bringing attention to paralysis, but the underlying message being sent here is that nobody gives a shit about cripples until a celebrity becomes one.

I think the whole entry makes sense. Although I feel bad about agreeing with Maddox, with the recent death of Christopher Reeve, I've got to raise my hand and say he's got a point.

It's funny how people only start to look around and care about the world around them when something bad happens. I guess humans are like that. We only care about something when it directly involves or affects us.

3 weeks without eggs and then people start complaining and saying how much they miss their eggs. Well, ever thought about the people starving around the world who have never even tasted an egg before? Surely they need the eggs more than we do. I'm sure a few weeks without eggs never killed anyone.

There was even a case not too long ago where a man injured himself when he slipped and fell in the rain at the Singapore Island Country Club carpark. Unable to get up, he lay there for 20 minutes before someone helped him. What really makes ticks me off though, is that people saw him lying there but did nothing. They drove by and even the person who parked in the adjacent parking space saw him, but did nothing to help. When asked, the reason given was that he/she (I'm not sure if it was a man or a woman) though the injured man was lying there to "chope" the parking space!

That is the worst excuse I have ever heard. It's worse than "the dog ate my homework" excuse. At least it's possible that your dog might eat your homework (it has happened to me before). But seeing a person lying down in the middle of a carpark, in the middle of the pouring rain and saying that you thought he was reserving the parking space, that has got to the biggest piece of bullsh*t I've ever heard.

Well maybe they didn't help him because of these reasons:

Top Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Help Someone Lying Down in the Rain in Your Exclusive Country Club

1. He may not be a member.

2. Even if he’s a member, he may have fallen down in the non-member’s section.

3. He fell down on a double yellow line.

4. It’s raining, mah, and my expensive designer clothes may get wet.

5. Some more, I just manicured my nails.

6. Maybe he peng san because he ate some dodgy chicken and wait suay-suay he pass bird flu on to me, then how?

7. I was just preserving his image. This is a very prestigious club and it’s very LC to be seen as needing someone else’s assistance.

8. I was already late for my tee off.

9. He wouldn’t sign the waiver of liability that my lawyer insisted I obtain before helping him.

10. That’ll teach him to wear such lao ya shoes that can slip in the rain so easily.

11. He got no chauffeur to help him, meh? Tsk tsk, the club’s admission standards are falling.

12. I already showered, and I do’wan to sweat again picking him up.

13. Let the staff pick him up, lah. Pay such expensive membership fees for what?

14. Help one person once, and soon people will be falling down all over the shop all the bleddy time. I don’t want to encourage more of this sort of careless behaviour in the club. It’s a real slippery slope.

15. Wait people see me and all the time I’ve spent building up my reputation as a tough, hard-hearted, ruthless businessman will be wasted.

16. Aiyah, I thought he was only a staff member.

17. Singaporeans simply must learn how to stand on their own two feet.

18. People faint here all the time after finding out how much club membership costs.

Hahaha. Oh well, I'm dozing off as I type this entry right now, so I'll end here. Tomorrow I'm going for a sushi buffet! Yahoo!

It's In The Eyes

Notice the recent entries are really short? Well, it's because my TOR. I haven't finished it yet. So this entry will probably be a short one too.

Actually I'm supposed to be doing it now, but I'm procrastinating again. So I'm here blogging, but I can't blog properly because this TOR thingy is hanging at the back of my mind. I feel like playing Way Of The Samurai 2 on my Playstation, but it's better to complete my work first before relaxing. Oh yeah, tomorrow's the deadline for our Audio Video project and everything seems to be going quite well. Hopefully when they play it tomorrow on the big screen it'll look okie.

Well, exams are coming up and I'm sure lots of mugging has been going on and yet to come. Sooner or later you'll spot someone with dark rings around their eyes. Speaking of dark rings, I've always wondered why we get them. So I used trusty Google to find out.

Bags Unders The Eyes

Why do you get dark rings under your eyes, when you're tired?

The short answer is that nobody has done a lot of research in this area, so we don't have one single definite answer. But we do have a bunch of partial answers.

The skin under the eyes is very thin, and almost transparent - so it will show any colour changes in the layers underneath very easily.

First, the blood supply from that skin drains into the internal jugular vein. That drainage is a lot better when you're lying down than when you're standing up - so the blood tends to pool there. This is one factor that will give you dark half-circles under the eyes.

Second, you have huge numbers of Mast Cells in the skin under the eyes. These Mast Cells will release histamine (sometimes by themselves, and sometimes when you rub them), which will cause swelling under the eyes - and darkness.

Third, when you get dehydrated (which sometimes happens when you get tired), the skin under the eyes gets dark. And finally, not a reason but an observation. Eyes in animals are an important signalling area.

So if we humans get dark under the eyes, it's a way of telling other humans that we're tired.

Intersting. I also found this site with lots of questions related to the eyes. Like how blinking more times can help prevent your eyes from becoming dry. With the amount of mugging that's going around now, it's important to keep the eyes nice and moist. The last thing I need is having to rub my eyes every 15 minutes.

Finally in the mood to do some work. Back to the bloody TOR.

It's Saturday!

I'm the library doing my TOR right now. All my other classmates are here doing the Audio Video assignment too. I'll be going off in a few minutes time because I have worship practice at 4pm.

It's Saturday, which means Summer Scent is on later! So like I said earlier, drop whatever you're doing and switch the TV to Channel U at 11pm! Oh wait, there's England vs Wales at 10.. Bah, I'd rather watch Son Yeh Jin than David Beckham.

Okie. Gotta go now.

Low Energy

I'm feeling super tired right now. All because of the Physical Fitness Test we had to take today. How did I do? Well I failed. But I don't really mind.

There are 6 stations, sit-ups, pull-ups, sit and reach, standing broad jump, the shuttle run and finally, the dreaded 2.4KM run. I managed to do all 5, and I did pretty well but when I reached the 2.4KM, I was out of energy. What made it worse was that I was dehydrated and started to feel faint. I passed out for a while as we were seated in the stands so I didn't take the final run in the end.

Even though I didn't run, we played basketball later on so I still spent a fair amount of time running around. It feels good to have gone through a workout! Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, YF almost got into a fight with another guy while we were playing basketball. Haha. I wasn't playing but from what I heard those idiots were playing really rough so YF got pissed and wanted to whack one of the guys. When confronted, the guy and his fellow idiots backed off and left the court. At least they made an intelligent decision there.

Alrighty. Once again I'll have to cut this entry short because there's other things I have to do. Like sleeping. Nitey.

This Is A Boring Entry

I'm supposed to be doing my Terms Of Reference(TOR) for my Final Year Project(FYP) but I suddenly feel like blogging. This is going to be a boring entry, so read on if you want to.

Seems like the blogging trend is catching on in my class. At first only a few of us had blogs, but more recently, more have been starting one! There's ZK, TK and YF. In fact, I helped TK and YF created their blogs yesterday!

Right now this TOR is giving me a bit of hard time. Writing the TOR isn't that actually, it's just that you have to think and plan out how you're doing to do your project and what it's going to be like. (E.g. the functions, the scope of the project..) I just ate not long ago, so maybe the digestion that's going on in my stomach is hindering my thought process. I just feel like sleeping... *yAwN*

Alright, that's enough blogging for now. Back to the TOR. Crap.

An Important Story For Everyone

Alright, here's an important story that we all can learn something from.

*Names of characters have been changed to protect their identities.*

The Japanese Job
(Based on a true story)

One Saturday morning, T-Snake, Jordan, Zidane and H3lix went to the school library to finish up their report. So they found a study room, took out their laptops, and started doing their work.

They did their work all the way until around 1pm when they decided to go down to get something to eat.

They all got up to leave except T-Snake.

"Eh, don't want to go eat ah?" Zidane asked.

"Don't want la, I not hungry," T-Snake replied. "I stay here help you all watch bag."


So Zidane, Jordan and H3lix went down to canteen 2. It was usual lunchtime crowd so when they got there the queues were pretty long.

"The queue very long, I go back get a smoke first," Zidane said. So he returned to go back the study room to get his cigarettes from his bag. However when he returned to the room, he saw T-Snake at his laptop. When T-Snake saw Zidane, he tried to close the application he was using. To his horror, it wouldn’t close! Frantically he clicked away at the “X” button.

Zidane’s laptop was always very slow but it always was usually working alright.

Surely, the laptop wouldn’t choose to hang now. Surely he wasn’t that unlucky!

Still the program refused close. Abandoning his efforts, he quickly closed Zidane’s monitor and tried to back to his seat as casually as possible, hoping Zidane wouldn’t notice anything.

Zidane however, sensed some fishy business was going on and pulled up his monitor to see what was going on. And to his surprise, this is what he saw:

Sending Files To T-Snake:
File Name: Japanese Hot X-X-X Total File Size: 278MB
Progress: 68% ...

!!!!! T-Snake was stealing p*rn from Zidane’s computer! You think that Zidane would be all angry, but instead he was amused that T-Snake would be caught stealing p*rn from his computer.

“T-Snake… You ah..,”

All T-Snake could was to look at Zidane and give an embarrassed laugh.

And ever since that day, T-Snake has had to live with nickname, “The P*rn Stealer”.

The End.

So everyone, what’s the moral of the story? What can we all learn from this event? It’s quite simple really.

There are 2 lessons we can learn from here.

1) Don’t steal something that is free.
- T-Snake could have easily just downloaded whatever he wanted at home. If he had done that, he wouldn’t have been caught with “his hands in his pants”, so to speak. Maybe he was just horny, but being horny doesn’t justify stealing. Only being SUPER HORNY does.

2) Don’t steal. Just ask.
- If T-Snake had asked, Zidane would have given him what he wanted. All he had to do as ASK. But in the end, he chose to steal. Steal some more, now kena caught. But then again, being horny clouds one’s judgment, so we can let him off a bit on this part.

Ah.. we all have learnt valuable lessons today haven't we? So next time when you're old and you have children, be sure to tell them this story, so they all can learn from the mistakes of T-"The P*rn Stealer"-Snake.

Believing The Make Believe

When I started learning magic, I learnt that one of the most important things you have to do is to get the audience to believe something that is not there.

"A magician is an actor playing the role of a magician" - Robert Houdin.

So getting people to believe something that is not there, is a trademark of a good magician. That's why I admire magicians like David Blaine because they have such exceptional ability making peopl something that is not there. Well, here's a story for everyone to read.

The Golfer, His Wife and a Genie

A husband took his wife to play her first round of golf..... Nervous, the wife promptly hacked her first shot right through the window of the largest house adjacent to the course.

The husband cringed, "I warned you to be careful! Now we'll have to go up there, find the owner, apologize and see how much your lousy drive is going to cost us."

So the couple walked up to the house and knocked on the door.

A warm voice said, "Come on in."

When they opened the door they saw the damage that was done: glass was all over the place, and a broken antique lamp was lying on its side near the broken window.

A man reclining on the couch asked, "Are you the people that broke my window?"

"Uh...yeah, sir. We're sure sorry about that," the husband replied.

"Oh, no apology is necessary. Actually I want to thank you. You see, I'm a genie, and I've been trapped in that lamp for a thousand years. Now that you've released me, I'm allowed to grant three wishes. I'll give you each one wish, but if you don't mind, I'll keep the last one for myself."

"Wow, that's great!" the husband said. He pondered a moment and blurted out, "I'd like a million dollars a year for the rest of my life."

"No problem," said the genie. "You've got it, it's the least I can do. And I'll guarantee you a long, healthy life! And now you, young lady, what do you want?" the genie asked.

"I'd like to own a gorgeous home complete with servants in every country in the world," she said.

"Consider it done," the genie said. "And your homes will always be safe from fire, burglary and natural disasters!"

"And now," the couple asked in unison, what's your wish, genie?"

"Well, since I've been trapped in that lamp and haven't been with a woman in more than a thousand years, my wish is to have sex with your wife."

The husband looked at his wife and said, "Gee, honey, you know we both now have a fortune, and all those houses. What do you think?"

She mulled it over for a few moments and said, "You know, you're right. Considering our good fortune, I guess I wouldn't mind, but what about you, honey?"

"You know I love you sweetheart," said the husband. I'd do the same for you!"

So the genie and the woman went upstairs where they spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying each other.

After about three hours of non-stop sex, the genie rolled over and looked directly into her eyes and asked, "How old are you and your husband?"

"Why, we're both 35," she responded breathlessly.

" No kidding," he said, "Thirty-five years old and both of you still believe in genies?"

Dang. That couple got "PWNED". In other words they got totally owned by the guy's trick.

Although this is an example of using that ability for bad purposes, it's also an example of this ability at it's best. Simply because they believed the guy so much that he got them to do whatever he wanted.

Well, if you're saying that magic is all about tricks and tricking people, you're only half right because magic is all about entertaining people. It's only when you use it like this guy, then you become a con man.

But I just had to post up that story because it was so funny.

The Prettiest Girl On TV!

(Note: I updated this entry again after 11pm so if you read it before, there's some changes.)

From today onwards, my new primary email is! Yeap, 1GB of space and I don't know what I'm going to do with it. Still, it's better than Hotmail's current storage space of 2MB, even though I heard they're going to upgrade to 250 MB soon). So go on ahead and drop me an email if you want to. I'm changing my handphone number too, but of course I'm not going to post it up here.

Well, it's been a long day so far. I came early in the morning to help my classmates in their filming for the Audio Video assignment. We were filming a basketball shoe advert, so we were in the hot sun all morning all the way into the afternoon, playing basketball and helping TS, our main star, do his ultimate slam dunk over JJ. I wonder how the final video look on screen when it's finished.

Talking about video, I've got something to say: I've found the prettiest girl on television! Haha.


Yep! She's the 2nd prettiest girl I've seen so far (the 1st? My girlfriend of course!) and her name's Son Ye Jin! She's starring in the drama called Summer Scent which shows every Saturday 11pm on Channel U. I like her because she's got the really sweet and really cute look. Her figure is just nice too. Not too skinny like most of the girls nowadays. I don't like girls that are too skinny because when I put my arms around her, I don't want to feel something that's hard and bony.

At first I didn't watch the show because I hate soap operas but one Saturday my brother was scanning through the channels and he happened to turn to Channel U when I saw her. Of course, like any guy, when I saw her I told my brother to hold the channel right there. And that's how it began. Hahaha. It turned that out my sister also followed the show so come every Saturday night at 11, the 3 of us will be glued to the television.

The only thing I have against her is that she always has this "on the verge of tears" look. Like she might cry at any moment or she just finished crying. Maybe it's because she's supposed to have just recovered from a heart operation (which soap opera doesn't involve a character getting sick or being in poor health). But thinking again, it's alright! Because just seeing her is enough to keep me watching the show. Hahaha.

So whatever you're doing this Saturday, drop whatever you're doing at 11pm and turn on the tv to Channel U!

P.S - I'll write the "important story" tomorrow because I got sidetracked instead with Son Ye Jin. Hahaha.

The Blue Phone

I've been feeling really lazy to blog nowadays, which explains the lack of recent entries. So here's my first entry for this week!

I've got good news! I finally got my new Nokia 5140 phone!

Yeah! Feel so glad that I've finally got a phone of my own. All my previous phones were either borrowed was given to me by someone else. I got it on Sunday at Funan Shopping Centre and something else happened too. I saw the finalists from American Idol!

They're here in Singapore for a concert this week and they were doing some shopping. At first I didn't believe when my friend said, "Hurry up, Jasmine Trias is here". So I went anyway and there she was in one of the shops! Actually Jasmine is really short. Maybe only around Amelia's height, which is 155cm or something. And not only Jasmine was there, but all the other 6 finalists who came to Singapore. At first not many people noticed them, but after a while people from my church (the service is held just next to Funan) heard about the news and came to see them. They were the first ones to approach them and started asking to take pictures with them. What can I say? Filipinos will be filipinos. LoL~

I saw Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson, (who were quite tall), Jon Peter Lewis, George Huff and Latoya London. My friends told me that Diana Degarmo was there too but I didn't see her. George Huff was in one of the shops buying a guitar and my good and crazy friend, Chester went to take a picture of him because George was his favourite singer in American Idol. Then you know what Chester did? He started to sing in front of George Huff! Well, Chester can really sing well, but singing in front of George Huff? It was so embarrassing for me. Later on I asked him what he said to George Huff before he sang to him and he said, "I just went up to him and said, 'George, I'm your greatest fan, then I just sing to him la. I sang the "Lean on me" song'. Then he said, ‘Wow, you can sing man!' and in the end he gave me his email address la."

At least George Huff was kind enough to entertain a crazy dude like him. After a while more and more people came so they all had to leave after a while. Too bad I didn't manage to get a picture with Jasmine Trias, but it's alright. :) There was this cute girl playing one of Xboxes around so it wasn't too bad. Haha. =P

Oh yeah, before I continue, I'd like to say:

Happy 21st Birthday Yifan!

Yep, the big brother of our class turned 21 day and we all went to Far East's Hans at for dinner to celebrate his birthday. After that we just spent the rest of the time walking around the place, looking at stuff but mostly we didn't buy anything. We walked until around 10 plus and then we went home. Leonard was kind enough to give me lift home. It's nice to have a friend that drives.

Right now I'm listening to the songs from Zhou Jie Lun's latest album and they're really good. Yep, he's a good songwriter. It's precisely that his songs are so good and unique that he can get away from his slurred words and his okay singing. I don't think he's a good singer at all. It's just that his songs are so well-written and made for his style of singing that it becomes so unique, which has made him stand out from all the other mandarin singers out there. Before all the Jay fans start flaming me, don't get me wrong. All I'm saying is that Zhou Jie Lun is average in terms of his singing ability however; his musical talent and songwriting skills are really really good.

Tomorrow I'll be writing a very important story from which every one of us can learn something, so look out for that entry. It's based on a true story some more. Alrighty, then. Good night people.

Love And Madness

I got this story from an email. It's quite an amusing story.

The Origin of Love

A long time ago, before the world was created and humans set foot on it for the first time, virtues and vices floated around and were bored, not knowing what to do. One day, all the vices and virtues were gathered together and were more bored than ever.

Suddenly, Ingenious came up with an idea: "Let's play hide and see!" All of them liked the idea and immediately Madness shouted: "I want to count, I want to count!" And since nobody was crazy enough to want to seek Madness, all the others agreed. Madness leaned against a tree and started to count: "One, two, three...." As Madness coutned the vices and virtues went hiding.

Tenderness hung itself on the horn of the moon, Treason hid in a pile of garbage.

Fondness curled up between the clouds and Passion went to the centre of the earth.

Lie said that it would hide under a stone but hid at the bottom of the lake, whilst Avarice entered a sack that he ended up breaking.

And Madness continued to count: "... seventy nine, eighty, eighty one..." By this time, all the vices and virtues were already hidden - except Love. For undecided as Love is, he could not decide where to hide. And this should not surprise us, because we all know how difficult it is to hide Love.

Madness: "....ninety five, ninety six, ninety seven..."

Just when Madness got to one hundred, Love jumped into a rose bush where he hid. And Madness turned around and shouted: "I'm coming! I'm coming!"

As Madness turned around, Laziness was the first to be found, because Laziness had no energy to hide. Then he spotted tenderness in the horn of the moon, Lie at the bottom of the lake and Passion at the centre of the earth. One by one, Madness found them all - except Love.

Madness was getting desperate, unable to find Love. Envious of Love, Envy whispered to Madness: "You only need to find Love, and Love is hiding in the rose bush." Madness grabbed a wooden pitch fork and stabbed wildly at the rose bush. Madness stabbed and stabbed until a heartbreaking cry made him stop. Love appeared from the rose bush, covering his face with his hands. Between his fingers ran two trickles of blood from his eyes.

Madness, so anxious to find Love, had stabbed out Love's eyes with a pitch fork. "What have I done! What have I done!" Madness shouted. "I have left you blind! How can I repair it?"

And Love answered:" You cannot repair my eyes. But if you want to do something for me, you can be my guide."

And so it came about that from that day on, Love is blind and is always accompanied by Madness.

My Super Classmates!

I've decided to take my FYP! Yep, finally made the decision after much thought. Since it's within my hands to finish the FYP, I'm going to take it and get it over and done with. I know it's going to be hard work, but life's going to be like that no matter what aspect of your life you're in. And most of all, I want to graduate with my super fun classmates! Haha.

I tell you, I have the best class in the whole of Singapore. From our leader YF, there's TS with his huge anaconda, JJ the programming and basketall pro, Joe the romantic, Ruby our class pet, CH the long one, Mel the dinosaur, ZK the.. wait, he has no nick name.. PK and Ham the other progamming experts, YY the expert in everything IT, TK the blur one and XH our mummy! =P

That's the usual gang in our class and if you do happen to come by our class, you'll see us playing cards all the time. That's right, we're all card experts now. From Dai dee, bridge to hearts, we'll kick your ass! Hahaha. Just kidding. Actually we got caught playing cards by a gay and impotent network administrator yesterday. We should have kicked his ass but when we saw that he was giving us a chance, we feigned that we were guilty and in the wrong. You know, heads bowed, face sad sad that kind of look. And he let us off a little. Hahaha.

Alright, enough blogging, I got a class at 10! Crap.
