Goodbye Keypoh…

April 10, 2014 at 3:07 AM

At the beginning of every year, when I make my new year’s resolution or wish, there’s one thing that I always wish – to have an awesome year ahead. Wishing for no drama and no depression. And shortly after that, I get a confirmation that my wishes never came true when shit happened.

Yesterday morning, I lost Keypoh, one of my cats. I noticed that for the past week or two, she’s been quiet and not as energetic as she used to be. I sensed something was wrong but a few days ago she was back to her original self. She’s been eating, she was cheerful, until 2 days ago when she was so quiet and barely responding to me at all. She didn’t eat nor drink. I’ve faced kitty death so much that I know well the signs of you know.. death approaching. So I was preparing myself. At least when you’re expecting it, it won’t hurt as much as something that came as a shock. At least you have time to prepare and accept what’s coming. I had 2 days to prepare for what’s coming.

Apart from that, I’ve been having major health problems since last month. And it’s not helping that yesterday I woke up with an excruciating pain in my right foot – the same kind of pain I’ve been having since December in my left foot. It’s like they’ve switched. I don’t even know what happened. So since yesterday I’ve been in SO MUCH PAIN and limping like [insert a word here].

I have other problems too that I cannot mention here. I have high tolerance for pain and sorrow and depression but try having 5-10 major problems at the same time. Tell me if you don’t end up in a mental hospital or do something stupid. So for the past couple of weeks I’ve been avoiding people. I’m alone, always alone. I tried talking to some people about my problems but nobody understands my shit, nobody would help and end up making it worse. So screw that. I’ll deal with my shit alone.

It seems that the older I get, the more shit I get into, and the more I feel like … I don’t want to mention it here so let’s just end it at that.

Goodbye Keypoh.
I miss you so very much :(

No Internet = Ultimate Boredom

March 31, 2014 at 12:57 PM

Okay so for almost one week, I didn’t have internet. No internet = ultimate boredom. To top that, I was tethering from my mobile phone and Maxis has been so SHIT. It keeps getting disconnected or just not connecting at all. So stressful! So, for almost a week, my life felt incomplete. I was like wrapped in my own cocoon, disconnected from the outside world. I hate that feeling.

So I didn’t get to do much except read a book, watch TV shows and sleep. Once in a while I would check facebook and that’s it. I couldn’t work on my website either. Speaking of website, I’ve registered my new domain! Was working on it until they fucking suspended my account. I didn’t know they could do that even when I haven’t reached my account credit limit (for Unifi). So now I can go back to finishing my site. It’s all set up except I have to tweak a bit here and there, setup plugins and I’ll be done. It will be my new personal site. I’ll reveal the address soon.

Claudia came to Ipoh a couple of days ago due to some event and I decided to see her yesterday and we hung out. That was nice. I also got “Awek Chuck Taylor” book by Nami Cob Nobbler. Damn all the hype and review had me all excited and desperate to get that book. I’m currently reading ‘Cerita Satu Malam‘ so I’ll finish that one first (almost done), then KL Noir: White then Pinjam then I’ll start on Awek Chuck Taylor. Had to get it yesterday because MPH had some book festival going on so I had 15% discount. Yesterday was the last day.

Awek Chuck Taylor by Nami Cobb Nobbler

I’m not sure if I’ll like it or not. I’ve also read a good amount of negative reviews but I feel it’s personal preference. Not everybody would like the same thing you do. I won’t let that hinder me from reading this. We’ll see if I end up liking it or not. I’m thinking of making another personal book review blog since now I’ve found my love for reading again like I used to when I was young. I don’t know what happened that made me lose interest in reading completely… oh wait. I know what happened. Computer and internet came, that’s why.

I wanted to read ‘Babi‘ because of course, I heard all the hype and positive comments about that book. Didn’t have enough cash for it :( I wish Lejen Press would start selling their books online in ebook form like Buku Fixi. I’m happy I could get majority of Buku Fixi through Google Play at half the price of the printed book.

I have updated the layout of Sinfully Delicious – Malaysian Food Blog a bit! I wasn’t happy with the old layout and kept wanting a cleaner 2 columns look. Finally took the time yesterday to fix that. Next up to fix my movie review blog because I hate the layout and then finish working on my new domain.

Missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 Confirmed Lost in Indian Ocean

March 25, 2014 at 2:27 AM

This is such a devastating news that I have not yet been able to accept.

I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to the families of passengers and crew onboard the ill-fated Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. Our prime minister held a press conference tonight bearing the bad news that with latest research developments, they have concluded that the plane is lost in the Indian ocean and all passengers and crews on board perished together with it.

But part of me is still not believing it. I’m still praying and holding on to a hope that somehow, just somehow, the plane survived. I refuse to believe and accept this conclusion based on assumptions. I will believe once I’ve seen concrete evidence of their findings, confirming the plane did indeed, end its journey at where they said it did. I’m praying to God that they will find the black box and end this mystery once and for all. Give a closure to the families and the rest of the world.

My thoughts and prayers are with the families.
I don’t think I can sleep tonight.
I can’t imagine the devastation, the heartbreak, the sorrow, shock, anger, etc. the families must be feeling right now.
I am still hoping for a miracle.

Alfatihah to Muslim passengers and crews.
RIP to the rest of the passengers.

It’s a sad day for everyone. The whole world is mourning.

#RIPMH370

 

Retro Game: Hugo DOS Games!

March 23, 2014 at 8:59 PM

So I was googling and wanted to write about wholesale offset printing, and about printing and design. I wanted to post about design softwares that I used to love since we’re on printing subject. Unfortunately I couldn’t remember the name so I can’t find any pictures, info or write about it.

However.

I found this game that I used to really like while I was googling.

It’s called Hugo House of Horrors. I think this is part 1.

It’s a game where you are required to type instruction for your character such as “walk to the door” or “use key” or “open door” and stuff like that. This game frustrated me to no end because I couldn’t figure out what to type and what to do next so I kept getting stuck. Click more to read more about this game!

Kid’s Typing Spooky!

Need some tips for Letterhead Printing? You can visit the link.

I remember the existence and extensive use of easy design softwares when I was young that I used frequently. I was probably about 12? 13? I would create all the really cute designs and letterheads and stuff for absolutely no reason at all. I unleashed the creative beast within me just to waste time because at that time, internet was boring. Seriously. Not much to do on a fucking 56k internet connection! So when I wasn’t busy with DOS games and learning how to type faster on the keyboard, I would create arts.

I seriously miss Spooky, my typing coach! That Casper lookalike bastard. T__T

I still remember his voice and everything. I remember how at the end of the test, you get your typing speed result and I would print them out and filed it properly. He was my friend when I first bought my computer which had windows 3.1 :( He was so awesome.
