And they said work’s fun…


Jeez. Ain’t it a loong time since I last updated this ol’ mangled creation of mine. =)

'Tis a delightfully hot (Considering that I’m comfily under refuge of my snug little bedroom with the fan blowing cool wind behind me instead of dehydrating and literally speaking, changing from solid to liquid state under the bloody sun outside… Hell, and it rained non-stop yesterday? Weathers nowadays… tsk tsk) Monday evening. Thanks to Siva, Krishna and whoever of those Hindu (or was it Buddha? Er…) gods and demi-gods who’ve made their loyal believers celebrate Thaipusam yesterday, and thus today became a national holiday, and thus, no need to work today. Yup. No need to sit on a crappy plastic folding seat in a dark moldy and devilishly hot koperasi sekolah nodding my head off and waiting time to tick away till rehat time so mobs of budak-budak will approach with shiny little shillings jingling in their little palms as they stare at me with their beady little eyes innocently while drowning me with requests just so to spend their parents’ hard-earned money on 10 cents Digimon erasers, 30 cents pencils, 70 cents Spiderman notebooks and other cheap stuff of cheap material and cheap quality, which they’ll indulge in, show off and obsess on (Gollum, particularly, comes to mind. God knows why I’m suddenly associating this little kiddos with that twisted pathetic excuse of a hobbit… Not that I’m an anti-kiddo. =p) and then when time passes, eventually lose it by some kind of means, so that they’d have an excuse to return, a lust for something new and shiny gleaming in their eyes (On second thought, Lust? In the eyes of kids? Perhaps I’ve got issues… ) ... Thus begins another new cycle of konsumerisme, where both parties change hands of their cold hard greenbacks (Or bluebacks. Redbacks too, maybe) in benefit of each other happily. Or on secod thought, make that one. Count me out. If anybody’d be happy working in said, “dark moldy and devilishly hot“ place, surrounded by towering piles of primary/secondary school textbooks, may he die peacefully, God bless him, as he works till his last days in a dark moldy and devilishly hot public library where he can then be entombed in a tomb of tomes, may he rest in peace. Not a practical way to die perhaps, nor is it romantic, nor has it such a grandeur or worth-mentioning-ness that decades later one might bring up the subject to the grandchildren huddled by the knees (“Y’know, der’ wuhz dis guy who died inna libraree…”), but hey, who knows, years of popularitylessness and then you’d make the headlines? Go consider it.

Uh. Wandered off topic. Ah well. Anyway bought Ayumi’s new album, Rainbow today… am listening to it but a Virgo perfectionist I am, I can’t decide whether to like it or not. Hmm. Back to track 14…

Orcs, elves and Pandaren?


Last time, rumour was Warcraft’s gonna have an expansion. With Panda-rens (Y’know, black-white Panda-ish critters which ancestors of Oriental origins was probably been smuggled out of China into the icy lands of Lordaeron ages ago and later evolved into?) gonna become a new race. As all-knowing gaming guru extra-ordinaire, of course I knew it was just a hoax, and so quickly scolded the rumour-monger, poor misled fool he is, and dismissed the whole matter all together.

Now, out of nowhere rumour is there IS an expansion for Warcraft 3 (Considering it was easily 2002’s game of the year, and it as a commercial success, I ain’t suprised. I guess ditto for the millions of other fans out there). It is said that Computer Gaming World, the mag (duh), will be revealing all bout it in March’s issue. At the meantime, there’s zero info bout this bit of news anywhere online, except maybe in fan-infested public forums. However Blizzard has a beautiful splash image of icy mountains with the following caption:

The winds of the north whisper…
that a new King shall arise…
Hmm…

Uh… let’s see ah, Top Five Qualities of Blogs Who Are Sure-Failures :


1. Shows no insight whatever of the blogger’s mind or life or serves no purpose whatsoever. (Uh-huh. Good one.) (Tick)
2. Seldom, rarely, or hardly ever updated, thus annoying regular visitors alike. (Yup-yup, it does has a familiar ring to it.) (Tick)
3. Takes at least 30 seconds to load, even on a goddamned ADSL line. (Aaahhh… Yes. Perfect match.) (Tick)
4. No interesting captivating content, no nice pix, no nice games, no nice stuff, no nice nuthin’. Null, nada, nil. 'Nuff said. (Tick)
5. Tasteless, meaningless, boring. (Mmm, reflects mine just fine. So another tick to it.) (Tick)


Perfect score huh. 5 outta 5. Ya can’t get any better than this. So my blog qualifies as a failure huh. How exciting. Yippee.

Woo… Paul got himself a blog (Movable Type! Webcam! Wow!) already… In fact he’s running it off his own server through his own home-made business, partnering with a friend of his. double-Wow! Hell, even Ee Yean is setting up a web-hosting company. Geez!
