Last Day...

Tomorrow will be the last day of my internship period. Huuuuuuraaay.

It has been a great working and learning experience. This internship has given me a taste of what the office working life is like, of which I'm glad that I still have another year of university before I really immerse in that kind of life.

Anyway, after seeing Rames' latest vintage-looking photos, which by the way I've always adored such old photograph feel, I decided to google for tutorials on how to do it.

Here's what I got by following closely the tutorial.



Here's after tweaking the tutorial..



Read about the bus crash that killed three in many people's blogs. My condolences to each of the victim's family.

I'm joining the others to sign the petition for safer long distance bus rides.

I may be going to Singapore next month, by bus, but now I'm having second thoughts about going.

Movie Rants.

Two weeks ago, I think, I watched Cloverfield.

When I first saw its trailer during my first round of Transformers at the cinema back in July 2007, I remembered saying to my friends, 'wow another must-watch movie!!!'. It was still untitled then and shrouded in mystery and I soon forgot about it.

This year when I saw the poster of 'Clovefield' showing the headless Statue of Liberty,the dots connected. I suddenly remembered the trailer where the decapitated head of the statue of liberty was hurled from a distance like a ping-poing ball. Boy, was I excited.

Then the day finally arrived. I was so excited and curious at the same time at how the story was going to unfold. My expectation was, so to speak, through the roof!

As the movie played, what I thought was gonna be one of the best movies of 2008, had become one of the worst, in my opinion.

Wut I hate about the movie:

1. Too much screaming and running around. Getting from one place to another.I'd like that they focused on the monster too.

2. The dude behind the video camera kept screaming Rob's name. Fucking irritating.

3. Too much night scene. Night scene + running + shaky video camera = fucking dizziness. cb. Only the last 3-5 mins were daylight scene. Wtf.

4. wut the fuck happened to the monster in the end? BIG QUESTION MARK THERE.

Wut I like about it:

1. Perhaps the story-telling. Love the idea of telling a story through a first person's view.

Verdict: Damn fucking disappointed knnbccb........!!!


Don't watch this movie, you've been warned.

I watched 'Gabriel' last week and it topped Cloverfield in the worst movie category. Fucking lame siah the story... and the graphic... shit ....the most undeserving rm11 ever spent.


Rambo yo asssssss!!

I just came back from watching Rambo 4. Initially I didn't think I would watch the movie, let alone like it. The reason why I disliked it at first is because I hate the idea of shooting the whole thing in a jungle... but I wus totally wrong. I love the movie.

Love the violence and lots of bloody splattering scenes, the powerful explosions and firing of machine guns. OMG.. RAMBOOOOOOOOO......

I wish they will make 'Rambo' a verb!!!

(which I almost sold).

It seems like one would never grow tired of their Nintendo DSes.

I mean, of course at one point in time you will feel bored after playing it for one year. But with so many great homebrew applications out there for the handheld console, it is not difficult to start liking your DS again as if it were just bought yesterday.

If you bought your Nintendo DS solely for playing games, then you are not doing this awesome little gadget any justice. Please don't, for god's sake! It is capable of doing so many other things!!!

Why not? It is equipped with wifi connectivity, a microphone and a touchscreen function for interactivity.

Right now, I think some talented developers are experimenting how to turn the Nintendo DS into a functional Skype-like phone.

You can turn your DS into an ipod, albeit not as many features as the real ipod. But close enough. Using the touchscreen, you can scroll the wheel of the ipod to choose menu, songs and adjust volume.

Here's a video.

And here's my IPOD/DS.


Last week, after almost 3 years and many failed attempts to meet, I finally had the chance to meet a couple of old friends from Melbourne. But the darn thing is, after all these years, we forgot to take pictures to remember this rare chance of reunion!!! Wut the hell right???? It must have been the excitement.

This is us nearly 3 years ago. How time flies.

Me, Wily, Alan.

HAHAHA... wut an unforgettable night. LMAO.

YOUTH '08!!!

Finally, an entry that is not outdated. Yay.

So my friend and I went to the "Youth '08 - We Are The Trendsetters", a Malaysian Youth Lifestyle Showcase 2008 on the 19th Jan.

This event could not have come at a better timing, when my friend had just returned from Indonesia and we were just dying to go fire some shutters.

These are the pictures from that youth lifestyle exhibition.

Celebrity Secrets programme.

I dun really know who these pple are, but the cat with the hat on is Point Blanc.

Oh wait, I remember!
(L-R: Ex-M'sian Idol contestant, Ex-Miss Beauty Pageant, DJ, Point Blanc).

I could be wrong though.

There was a dance competition, too.

And, Point Blanc performing "IPOH MALI" on the spot.

Also, there were some bombing aka graffiti going on.



Part of the graffiti scene.


Then, there was also a Malaysian rapper dude performing. Who is he?

Oh yes, nice to finally n officially meet you guys, Jason and Rames!

Back in December 2007, a week before Christmas, few friends and I went to Midvalley for the PLAYex'07, a convention of some sort for games, comics, manga and toys aficionados.

Having never attended this sort of event before, I thought it was going to be a great one.

How so very wrong was I. THE EVENT SUCKED. SUCKED SUCKED.

Maybe my expectation was high, but I had a pre-conceived idea that it was gonna be like the ComicCon in San Diego... rofls... ok, maybe not on such a grand scale... but come on... at least 1/5 of it. Man, I was totally disappointed.

Anyway, we didn't spend more than 30 mins there and proceeded to The Gardens.

Felt really hungry near midnight, so decided to grab a bite near my place.

Bloody hell, I've something to rant about.

I just have one of the worst movie experiences, thus far!!

and this happened at TGV @ Sunway Pyramid.

So I was watching American Gangster, supposedly a very serious drama, Godfather-type, but not even close.

And suddenly, when it wus half way into the show and getting serious, the picture in the screen moved or wus it misaligned.. you know you can see the border of the film and some parts of the scene was cut. And sometimes it was split into two, with the bottom screen on top.

Then came the funny part.

The TGV peeps fixed the 'split screen' problem but they didn't know that they had projected the picture on the screen lower than usual. Meaning to say that, originally in a scene, you can see a character's full body. but now, since it's 'lower', you can only see his head and there's more space above his head.

Sometimes, you can see the microphones too.

In some scenes, the microphone is much lower and conspicuous. it wus funny seeing the scene and frustrating at the same time.

Now, have you seen subtitle this high???

maybe in pirated vcd.

damn you TGV! i want my money back!

So my friends and I went to the PC FAIR on the 8th of December 2007 at KLCC. And already you can tell this entry is one month late. But like they say, better late than never.

Well, the purpose was to take pictures of the models (living and non-living alike). But when we reached there, we find the place so unusually "desolate" of fellow shutterbugs/colour wolves (Later we found out that they went to an event where the girls were 10 million times hottaaaa!!!!!!!! aka The Xtreme Night!).

We felt abit paiseh to approach the models and take their photos. Defintely hundreds of eyes would be looking at us like cheekopeks and we didn't want that kind of attention.

So mission failed. Utterly disappointed.

Anyway the models (living ones) oso not, urm, how to say... "cream of the crop"... haha.. cuz the better ones were at TXN remember?? But got lah.. one or two promising ones.

We went outside and took photos of buildings instead.

The conventional angle...

The Concrete Jungle

Received my first paycheck today which is 8 days late... damn... dampened my excitement a little u know..
