SELAMAT HARI RAYA 2015

It’s been a while since I wrote in this blog, huh? I’ve been very busy, preoccupying myself with things and then spent most of the days sleeping. This Raya has got to be the most boring Raya ever for me where I spent 3 Raya days sleeping instead and not inviting anyone to my place. Plus, I also have a very badly decayed and broken wisdom tooth that I need to deal with this week but I don’t have enough money. Haih.

Here’s the one and only Raya selfie that I took yesterday when I went to my relative’s house!

It was hard trying to take a proper selfie with food when the app didn’t have a timer. So I had to use my phone cam with a timer to take but the color is all shit. 🙂

Since I don’t have TV this year, so let’s put on a Raya song from youtube to get that Raya mood.

I need to write about Native Instruments but the page shows me nothing so I’m not sure what can I write about it. Now my laptop is also lagging badly, which is normal, so I have to reboot it. I miss my iMac, really. This bites.

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.

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.

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!

Print Store & DVD Cover

March 23, 2014 at 5:24 PM

Do you own a printing business?
Looking for an online design customization tool?

There’s a company called EonCode specializing on building print-industry specific software. I checked out the website and it looks so awesome. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s available internationally, maybe just in the US, so if you’re in the US and looking for something to improve your printing business, you can check out the company.

Speaking of printing, when I went back to KL last year, I found my old DVD print!

It was my very last assignment for my elective class at college, which required us to do a full DVD cover. I never took a pic of it properly. I remember going through hell trying to get that DVD printed and it was fecking expensive! And they couldn’t even get the alignments right because I had different template. The ‘screencaps’ part turned out darker than I had expected. Sucks.

Just thought I’d share that.

Bye 2013.. Hello 2014. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014!

Hey… it’s new year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014!

This was supposed to be posted on new year’s day but I was preoccupied with other things, and then the next day I went to KL for 2 days so I didn’t get a chance to finish this. Since last year I barely blogged at all, so this is gonna be super long.

I can’t believe 2013 is gone now. As usual, all you would hear is ‘how time flies… where did my 2013 go?’. I’m sad. Sad that I’m a year older, and it’s a constant reminder how old I am now. It makes me depressed. Anyways.

I didn’t do anything on new year’s eve to celebrate except sit at home in front of the TV and wait for the countdown. I was depressed, about my problems and also that it was the last day, last minute that I would be in my twenties. Oh God. Moving on. Continue after the cut below.
