Breaking Down

Went for World Drum festival on Sat with a couple of good friends,

sat LRT to masjid jamek and walked to dataran merdeka, pretty sight, a lot of lights! shining brightly in the night, only hoc mun brought camera, so he has the pics.

Well the emcee was lousy, trying to sound pro but ain't pro sounding he was.. pffttt... and always mentioning the sponsors a gazillion times, and the speeches were long and tedious and cliche!

Even the tourist there were restless, one woman laid back and raised her hand symboling a 'bird' sign in the 'bird paper stone' game, and opening the 'bird's' mouth and closing it, haha, it was funny, even the tourist know our speeches are long and pointless, all for show, no one pays attention!

Then the show came on,

it was....


better go listen some drum solo by some random band, probably more entertaining,

yea yea, its cultural and stuff, but it's supposed to entertain!

Then they boasted bout the youngest conductor or something, and the fella is in the malaysia drums troupe, but that group was quite disorganized, they use everyday items as instrument


wonder why that sound soooo familiar?

could it be some other PEOPLE did it and became damn famous?

The emcee kept mentioning that singapore is our neighboring country, repeatedly you know, but thailand they didn't mention that they are our nieghbor, seeing how we share border with them and with singapore we are separated by a river or something,,

even indonesia was mentioned as our neighboring country, poor thailand... we left halfway go mamak watch football a bit, more fun.

Come 2008! come!

Movie Buzz

Saw Alien Versus Predator Requiem earlier tonight, or AVP2, whichever you familiar with.

Well, the show was alright, action movie, what did you expect?
I like the senseless merciless killing aptly done by the directors, no need think, just let the characters die.

Well, i was sitting beside two ladies, they were talking NON STOP!

Literally since i entered the cinema till the credits rolled, they were yapping yapping and more yapping, thankfully this movie was just all eye candy kinda show, if not i'd probably 'politely' ask them to shut their traps!

Real Life Examples from the movie and the women's conversation:
Predator vaporizes bodies to leave no trace:
-"OOhhh, Dia ni hapuskan bukti", "Ya kah? Ohhhh"

Predator hangs a body upside down:
-"Dia tergantung"

Women in movie scream for no reason:
-" AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Survivors climbing towards helicopter chased by Aliens:
-" Cepatlah naik helikopter! OOHH! EEEEEEEEEEEE!"

Every time alien jumps out from the ceiling (VERY PREDICTABLE):
-"ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" (covers mouth)

Small kids killed:

Yeap, thats the idea, followed by countless of obvious statements and actions which were so annoying, as i said, thankfully this show really just go to see for fun.

Funnily, people behind us were also as noisy, but spoke in different language or with heavy accent, laughed kau kau when girl gets slaughtered as collateral damage...

Man, people are sick in their minds.

I think i better go watch some South Park now..

Been Better!

Holidays i'm busier than when i got exams


need a breather!

About prom ah, when got mood only blog ler hehehehehe

Meanwhile here's a joke,


The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington
chemistry mid-term. The answer by one student was so "profound" that the
professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course,
why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.

Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas
cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need
to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which
they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to
Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many
souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different Religions that exist in
the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a member
of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of
these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we
can project that all souls go to Hell.

With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in
Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the
volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature
and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand
proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

1) If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter
Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell
breaks loose.

2) If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell,
then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year
that, "it will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you," and take into
account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number 2 must be
true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen
over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it
follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore,
extinct...leaving only Heaven thereby proving the existence of a divine
being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting "Oh my God."

The Day of Births

Last Sunday was a loooong day.

Why long since it only has 24 hours?
I don't know, doesn't make sense right?
How come humans don't make sense?
When we say short cut, how the cut is short?

Luke Skywalker to Sith Lord in a Yo Momma Contest:
Yo Momma's so stupid that she went to bangkok to buy a tiefighter!
Yo Momma's so stupid she spent all day saying "Am not" to R2!

I digress, big time.

So, mom celebrated her, erm, well, er..... 30th(?) birthday!

And our church Myanmar brother celebrated his 25th!

HE and his pallies made us another Myanmar cultural dish! If you remember my More Hinder
post back in May, a pun for another of their dish i name Mo-Hing-Kah, this time they brought another tribe's special dish - Shuen Cow Swear! (As close as i can spell it to be pronounced properly)

As simple as it looks, it is absolutely fabulously delicious!!!!
I guess i like this more than Mo-Hing-Kah, but it doesn't matter, both rocks!
I had 3 helpings, would love to have more.. but then i had other plans!

Celebrated mom's birthday at Shogun, while it was satisfying, it wasn't terribly good, i like the sushi part though, i love sushi, anyone got good sushi buffet which is affordable? we should go.

Yea, the desserts weren't so good. Well, Shogun is just convenient, that's all, but i guess if go with friends, it'd be funner, anyone wanna go?

Then walked in 1u a lil, at the exhibition area got like christmas-y stuff! Like this Fully chocolate made Bunny!! But Mom said it's hollow inside, can get tiny choco animals coated too! (Lazy to rotate the pic and upload again, just make do la huh)

Then got this not so Lil Drummer Boy (?) Quite a sight, then got these bunch of like orchestra kids came out, mostly Lala girls and Lala boys,
underage some more, sigh.

But it was cool, i like the semi-crowded malls, nice to walk and see all sorts of people!

Last but not least,
Quote Keren:
Yo momma's so fat that when she sat next to everyone in class.

Fairy Tales and Castles

As the sun goes down and we grow up, what have we become?

Are we jaded?

Are we sluggishly going through with life?

What happened to the dreams we used to have as kids?
Where are they now?

How about saving the world?
How about following Him to the end of the earth?
What about that becoming a hero?
Having a bunch of kids to make up a football team?
The perfect family you always wanted?
Fly around the world?
Help the needy?

Is it because it was so childish? Now that we have BIG responsibilities, we are more in tune with REALITY, and we have to put our dreams behind?


Are we just deviating from those dreams further and further and justifying by saying we don't want them anymore? By embracing what comes may?

Life is a drag, only if you choose to drag it.

He's not even trying..

Keren updated his blog!!



Apart from that

been studying a lil, gaming a lil, life's alright =)

Met old friends today at a camp. good time!

Few things i learned from the movie Enchanted (Spoilers may be ahead!):
1. Your true love can change to be someone else when you stay with that someone for a couple of days.

2. All stepmothers are stereotyped to be evil.

3. Prince charming is an idiot (there, go for handsome people some more la, haiyo, girls ah)

4. Curtains and floormats can be made into nice clothings.

5. When cartoon characters from disney come to life, it is ridiculous. (hint: cosplay)

Overall, fun show to watch to kill brain cells, songs catchy though, and the small girl cute in her role.

Sweeney Todd, Prince Caspian, The Dark Knight, Iron Man, CJ7! Come 2008! Year of the movies!

Blue Eyes

We are at fault for conforming.


Look, when things come our way, we tend to embrace it and then somehow mould it into our "destiny".

IF God made us to be more than conquerors, why aren't we conquering?

It's a disease i tell you, you may wanna argue, but it's true.

A.W. Tozer puts it nicely, allow me to paraphrase from Chapter 5 of Pursuit of God:
With the age full of automation, we tend to have shortcuts in life and comforts never known before, we therefore apply the same principles in our spiritual life, we want fast transactions, unlike prophets of old, unlike King David where he would wrestle day and night and moan just to get God's attention, now all we want is fast, spending lil time in prayer and quiet time hoping to compensate what is lacking in our spiritual walk.
We go to meetings after meetings, sermons after sermons to feel "alive" in God and we feel good bout it, but in the end always dead inside, always withering away.

He wrote that like eons ago man, and it still reigns true, with passage of time comes better gospel messages, better worship, all futile, all meaningless, swept away by the winds, scattered into dust, if David in the olden days wrote that God desired not sacrifices and external things, then why now are we falling prey to it again?

Think about it, when you fail exams and people ask you to pursue something you dislike, are you just doing it because it's safe? is it ever in God's plan?
To heck with social norms, if ever we are normal, then we wouldn't be any different from this world.
To those who are going to study overseas, don't succumb to temptations, don't let things take charge, through God take charge!

Let God rule! Don't be a wimp!

D i s a r r a y

Blog hopping, saw the link to wikipedia, funny stuff:

"Ah Lian is a pejorative term commonly given to a certain group of young Chinese girls in Southeast Asia, especially Singapore and Malaysia. These Chinese girls, whose age ranging from their adolescent years to late 20s, usually centralised in the busier and more developed cities in the region. They are regarded as bimbos, and are stereotyped as anti-intellectual, superficial, materialistic, and shallow. Ah Lians are commonly stereotyped as having hair dyed in gaudy and bright colours, and attired in fashion mimicking hip-hop culture, although how much of this is true is debatable. Since their male counterpart is the Ah Beng, Ah Lians are also thought of as being excessively flashy and show-offs.

The Ah Lian "culture" is especially prevalent in the secular Chinese educational system schools, typified by their frequent use of vulgarities and appearance in cliques (joined by their male counter parts Ah Bengs).

Ah Lians commonly speak in a kind of hybrid mix of Singlish or Manglish and Chinese, or Chinese-related dialects. It is also common for the grammar from these dialects to cross over English usage, creating English phrases with Chinese grammar."



Ah Beng is a term commonly given to a member of a group of young Chinese men in Southeast Asia, particularly Singapore and Malaysia. These Chinese men, whose age ranging from their early teens to late 20s, usually centralise in the busier and more developed cities in the region, but are usually seen as originating from smaller or more rural towns. Ah bengs typically speak local slang, which is Hokkien or Cantonese mixed with English and Malay, such as Manglish or Singlish. They are often stereotypically portrayed to be anti-intellectual, superficial and materialistic and shallow. These values often lead to a lack of culture or indulgence in criminal activity or being involved in brawling or arguing out of disagreements with other people. Ah bengs are also sometimes associated with extensively-modified or zhng-ed cars, [1] and are stereotypically seen as being excessively flashy and show-offs. Ah Beng commonly are seen in gaudy patterned shirts, loafers without socks, gold jade rings and gold often counterfeit Rolexes .

The term 'Ah Beng' is also sometimes used to describe young Chinese men in Southeast Asia who cannot speak fluent English and/or have graduated from the secular Chinese education system of the region.

In Malaysia, the term 'Ah Beng' usually refers to males who have unusual styles and tastes. And the term 'lala-zai' refers to males involved in stereotypical gangster activity or fashion such as the dyeing of hair."
