Ever heard of a song written in 1933 by a Hungarian pianist, Rezsô Seress, interestingly nicknamed “The Suicide Song“? The mournful, melancholic lyrics of “Gloomy Sunday“ or “szomorú vasárnap”, written by László Jávor, paired with the deep emotional notes of the piano, combined into an incredibly haunting song, that many people ended their lives after listening to this song, after leaving hastily written last letters. Ack Sounds like extremely evil stuff to me. Read its lyrics here. Anyway I’m downloading a version sung by Bjork, and another by Sarah McLachlan… just curious. Well… hopefully this is not my last post… Hehe~ grin

Regular and loyal readers of my blog might notice that I’ve been constantly skipping my blogging every day or two recently. Well… Just been a bit too lazy to post on my blog on a daily basis, unlike Ee Yean. By the way she’s finshed with her blog… nice look! Although pure white isn’t exactly my cup of tea… uh, coffee. Anway click here to see the new Le Grandi Aspetattive, which means “Great Expectations” in, uh, Italian? Meanwhile, apparently after listening to advice from Aewis and me, recently she’s been starting to write longer and more, er, structured and readable blog entries now. On overall, well… it’s good to see some improvement. Not that I’m saying my style is good though, even my good pal Oliver used to complain he can’t understand the way I wrote my e-mails to him when the chap’s in London… LOL As in this little quote:

“Oi , how come you write yur messages so incoherrently ? Can’t understand bits and pieces of yur updates , even with my finely honed cerebrum …. “ – Oliver

Maybe this guy’s right after all! Hey… Got any linguistics experts round here? Perhaps you guys might want to flame me abit bout my so-called “incoherent” English and teach me of The True Path Of The Tao In Writing… grin Just don’t use too much swear words ok? Hehe~

Had two donuts from Top’s for breakfast, damned expensive stuff I tell you. And it isn’t even better than those you can buy from Dunkin Donuts! Humph. Anyway am feeling groggy yawn because I miss my daily java, and without my daily overdose of caffeine I’d probably have to resort to using toothpicks to pry my eyelids apart to prevent them from closing every few seconds or so in class. In fact slept through my 2 hours each Software Programming and Accounting classes in the morning. Ah well, whaddahell, I knew most of the stuff the lecturers will be ranting on and on about anyway… C++ and crap about Job Cost Accounting in Managerial Accounting stuff. So, no loss. smirk Emmm… anyway rite now am considering brewing myself an instant cupa… mmm mmm…can smell the thick sweetish aroma already… :-)

Buggered!!! My Compaq CD Player won’t start anymore!! Damn, have to pay a visit to Low Yatt Plaza soon to get it fixed. Meanwhile, ah, Altec Lansing speakers (read its reviews here), yeah babbeee… come to dada… grin

Sh*t, my harddisk is starting to run low on space already. Probably about 900 megabytes more before Windows XP will start to make a fuss out of it and nagging me to clean up the trash. Dang… if it wasn’t for Gavin who has been downloading all sorts of MTV’s off Kazaa into my laptop (One whole gig of these crap!!!)... Why can’t he just videotape it off Astro? Dang… Now I have to wait until I finish Mafia before I can install the full version of Emperor... i>groan

Aahh… finally got a copy of the October and November edition of the latest PC Gamer mag, just enough to satisfy my “thirst” for mindless gaming goodness… Hehehe, my precioouuusssss…. (Which reminds me, how come they name the mag that comes out by the end of September “November edition”, when November is still two calendar sheet flips away? Hmmm…. wierd men computer games magazines editors are…)

Oh yeah, btw I realised that recently this page starts to take a freakin’ long time to load, even on my DSL line… ack Sorreee! Will try and fix the bloody bug asap. Maybe it’s my Javascripts, maybe it’s my posts, maybe it’s my archives? I don’t know… Anyway I still don’t like this template, I still don’t like this layout, and I still don’t like the way the posts look all scruffy and disorganized… Damnit… Will need to start tweaking the html again… Which reminds me, Ee Yean is going to do a complete makeover for her blog too, and in fact I had an exclusive sneak preview of the brilliantly polished stuff that she’s managed to work out during the evening… Nice. :)
