Might as well end it.

I talk about wanting to blog more than I actually blog. :( It's not as if I don't enjoy it anymore, I just can't seem to make time. Hmm, can't seem or don't want to, not sure.

If you enjoy something, but don't spend any time doing it anymore can you still say that you enjoy it if you don't do it anymore?

What if you spend all your waking (and sometimes non-waking) moment at something you don't quite enjoy - does it actually mean that you actually enjoy it?

I'm losing it. By it, I mean my life... my intentions for it this year. It's not on track at all. It's so not on track it's actually on the negative. It's depressing.

What I'm in was what I told myself I wanted, but I'm tired of it now. It's not.... worth it anymore. It once was, but now I feel numb by it, I've lost all taste for it. Everything that drove me to do it, it's gone. It's no longer gratifying. I no longer feel that sense of accomplishment. It feels like, nothing.

When you feel like this, it's time to get out of it.

Isn't it?

I'm such an idiot.

Thanks for helping me realise that at the end of the day, all I am is a big, fat, lifeless, emotionless, disposable, piece of nothing.

I am such a goddamn fucking stupid idiot.

cryptic post - i don't care.

The blue pill or the red pill.

it's been bugging me for sometime now. Like an itch in the corner of my mind I can't reach to scratch.

i wished i was as certain as neo when he chose the red one in less than 5 minutes. then again, he grew up knowing that the red pill was his chosen path. He knew that the blue pill was NOT it. No need for grandfather stories. No need for further encouragement. No need for insurance salesmen con/scare tactics. He Just Knew it in his Gut to take the red pill.

I just need to know WHAT is MY bloody red pill.

But that's not for anyone to tell me. It's for me to know it in my gut.

_looks down_


*grasshoppercrickets chirping loudly in background*

..... stupid gut's no help at the moment.

maybe it will come with a little more time.

I still Love to Blog

Really I do. But I love my nieces better. They are cuter than my blog.

Also, I'm spending wayyy to much time at work. If not at work, then thinking about work. If not thinking about work, then dreaming about it. This is very unplanned for.. I just fell into it, really.

I still love you, dear friends and reader. I just have less of a life. and time. and energy. To update, or get involved. But that doesn't meant I don't think about it all the time, which I do, by the way.

I keep meaning to load up a collage of my twin nieces. But I spend too much time playing with them and taking pictures of them... and then conveniently feel lazy to make the pictures into a collage and load it up onto the web. :P Take my word for it, they are the cutest things ever. So chubby, and cute, and cuddly, and ohymgod it just melts my heart when they smile. I don't want to grow up too fast. Because once they'll do, they'll start talking, answering back, being rude, saying no, refusing to listen, slamming doors at your face... argh. Surly teenagers. I don't remember being like that... (though I'm sure my mum would beg to differ)

This is becoming a bad habit, me updating my blog only when I'm feeling high. It's like I'm only inspired when I'm high. Does that make me an alcoholic? No lah, I'm inspired by everything. The first rays of the morning sun. The chirping of birds. The smell of coffee. The taste of food. The smell of babies. Everything. I'm not an alcoholic. I'm a lifeaholic! :P

Now that I'm on a random blogging spree, better puke out everything I can think of:

Let's see, what are the last few movies I've watched.....
Avatar: Oooh, very pretty. The animals and plants, so pretty. But too freaking long. And one too many reminders of LOTR. But soooo pretty!
Alice in Wonderland: Weird. Alice in Wonderland to begin with, was already a weird story to begin with. Tim Burton took it to a whole new level. Disappointed with the Mad Hatter though. Expected him to be more, outrageous. He seemed too, controlled.
Sherlock Holmes: Rocked my fucking socks. Robert Downey Jr + Jude Law = fanfuckingtastic. I mean, apart from the actor, the storyline and the script was entertaining enough for me to love the movie!

Tv shows I'm currently trying to follow:
Glee: It's a guilty pleasure! Really! I really hate the very shallow storyline and always can't wait to get it over with until they perform.... but the lines they come up with sometimes, can be pretty darn funny and clever! I'm really liking r. schuester a LOT... though the sad thing is that I highly suspect that he is gay in real life. :(
AI: Not quite fantastic group this year. Not one person really stood out for me. It was just, meh. Is it just me or are the judges just really sound like they don't know what the fuck they are talking about anymore? My money's on Crystal or Siobhan. Crystal is actually original enough and Siobhan, like Simon says, it's a funny little thing. But if she keeps insisting on screaming at every single song ending, I'm going to strike her off faster than you can say "adam lambert"
So you think you can dance: love it love it love it love it...... until a couple screws up a performance, or when that annoying screeching thing who's a judge screeches like a dying hyena. The host, Cat Deeley, is really someone I can keep looking at without feeling bored. Ryan Seacrest could pick up a few pointers from her.

G6: Hate the place, most probably due to the fact that I hated the crowd. All these kids looked like they haven't even sat for their SPMs, what gives? Hate the DJ that was spinning on that night we were there. Some guys from Hitz. DJ Skeletor? Ohmygod. Unless G6 is meant to be a club for kids with a 5 second attention span, DJ skeletor should've been sacked yesterday! Thank god there was good company to save the night.
Zeta Bar: Very age-appropriate place. Nice life band, but after 2 nights, realised that their sets are pretty much the same. I had great company, so both times I was there, it was awesome.
Marketplace: For a foam party. Helluva fun! Mostly because of the good company, and excellent DJ. Except 2 days after, my skin started to peel like a freaking snake shedding it's skin. A little embarrassing when it's on your face. At work. But FUN fun FUN!

- I want to whiten my teeth. I've been thinking about it for too long already. Time to actually DO something about it.
- I'm feeling relieved and excited about something I did this evening. I haven't felt like this in a while with regards to "this". Fingers crossing, I hope it works out. I know I'm being annoying cryptic. So sue me.
- I'm actually a little jelak of Hoegaarden. Going to try my best to stay away from it for the next couple of months. Keep the killkennys coming though.


damnit. I ran out of juice.

till the next random update.

muah to the 2 of you for still sticking around.

Internal Thoughts.

Oh my god.

I am so totally aware that I should be sleeping right now because I actually do care about being able to function at work tomorrow. But the urge to blog is just too much to ignore. So here I am blogging at 2.15am on a Thursday night. shhhh. don't tell my boss okay. :PPPPPPP

why am i fucking blogging whenever i'm feeling extremely high ar. this is fast becoming a habit. am i turning alcoholic? do i actually creatively function better when I'm high? Wait. Don't tell me. I don't think I want to know. Let me enjoy this a bit longer.

I have to reiterate that the urge to blog in me is very high. Is just that I don't have my own pc, so.... it's inconvenient lah, which is why i dont bother.

Anyway. first thing first. clubbing in bamboo is fucking fun because the DJ plays MOSTLY danceable music. i say mostly because the fella likes to do the following which annoys the hell out of me:
1) plays a couple of songs more than once... not really complaining when he plays my favourite songs, but i don't feel the same about other songs which I don't quite enjoy.
2) plays karaoke-ish songs in the middle of the night. Karaoke-ish songs are only meant to be played at the END of the night lah idiot.
... other than night, fucker plays very very danceable music ...... thus far.

....and a 700ml black label for 300 bucks is still fucking overpriced for something i can get for 100++ bucks got 1 litre duty free at airport but what can i do about it, eh?

anyway, random shit time, because i'm high and can say almost whatever i feel like saying:

i'm 30. time is running out, but i'm still kinda young.

i wish i picked things up faster, but i know everything takes time.

i wish i had the natural talent to speak/sell/convince because it's so fucking relevant in life, but perhaps i will learn those eventually.... but why not NOW.

it's true what they say about "it's not what u know, it's who u know". unfortunately, my no bullshit assessment of myself is that i have neither, which means i have to work from ground zero, which sucks for me.

i know hard work counts for something but i wished i didnt have to work so hard.

i would probably go somewhere later in life, but i'm a impatient motherfucker who thinks too much so why not the hell now.

i know the fact that the only thing that is really stopping me from being truly great is myself - this might take forever to fix.

i really love to have a somebody, but right now when I'm high, i must say that it's better being alone than settling. in general lah.

i probably want too much too soon and have too high expectations which might mean that i'll never be happy - it's a good and bad thing ... right?

i don't care what u think, but i do truly love to dance, but the lack of basics, and with my fucked up knees means that there's a high possibility that i can never do it for a living. :)

my nieces are so cute. until they are naughty, which is when they are not cute and i'd feel like throwing them away, but the moment they are NOT naught i truly love them to bits.... until i remember what my brother told me " they are mine yeah, not yours. get your own ". sad. u think so easy ar? tiu.

lady gaga still rocks my socks.

i can't think of anymore.

till the next drunken post, goodnight.

Of Clubbing and Dancing.

Fuck I really want to blog more but I'm spending too much time at work and with life. Sorry. I feel really bad because I have so much to type about, but just can't be arsed to. Anyway......

Am a little high now so may be incoherent. you've been warned.

I'm sure i've mentioned this before, but I really do enjoy clubbing.

the music. the atmosphere. the drinks. the company.

Ppl say I think too much. that I'm too uptight. that I'm emo. I care too much.

Perhaps they are right. BUT.

When the music is good, the company is right, the drinks are plenty - I am none of that.

I prance around with my hands flaying about like a monkey on heat. I say whatever without giving a shit. I wear whatever I want - cargo pants, sneakers, tshirt - as long as I'm comfortable.

So if you're judging me on that night by how I act, look or dance - why should I care? I don't know you. You don't even KNOW me.

Someone once shared with me that his "me" time was when he was making his own coffee from scratch. The moment people see him making coffee, they know to leave him alone. It made me wondered what MY alone time was.

I finally figured out tonight that my "me" time was with some booze, some decent music and a dance space.

That's when I don't really give a shit about anything else but my own enjoyment. That's when I can lose myself. That's when I don't give a flying fuck what you think. That's when I forget about everything. That's when I feel fucking great.

Which is why I don't quite enjoy lengthy, philosophical conversations at clubs. Or any conversation for that matter. Don't enjoy random guys trying to chat me up. Hate the lack of a dance floor or shitty music.

Which is also why I prefer dancing with women because THEY DON'T EXPECT TO GO HOME WITH ME.

Not saying I'm hot. Or a great dancer. But you know how it is at clubs, right?

I would dance with a guy, if he knew that he's not getting anything from me. I would dance with a guy if he can kind of dance. Of course, bonus points if he is semi-cute when in the dark and when I'm high. But it's all very subjective because I don't really care about anyone else but ME during my "me" time. I'll just do whaever makes me happy.

I sure the rest of the world thinks different but I want to go to a club because I just want to enjoy myself. I want to get lost in the moment. I don't want to give you my number. I don't want your name. I don't want no goddamn conversation. I don't want to go home with you. I just want to dance. Unless you feel the same way, just leave me the fuck alone please. Please. please. Stop wasting my time and yours.

Hello, nobody decent really wants to get laid at a Club by a random stranger okay.

At leasts not me anyway. So just leave me alone, and just dance! Gonna be okay! just dance! spin that record babe! just dance! dance! dance! dance! dance!

A One Third Life Crisis In a Pear Tree.

Blooooody hell. Last night I had the biggest urge to blog and rant while I was high but NO! Cannot! Blog had to be down. Must be a sign from Allah. Oops. I mean. God.

Happy new year all! :D

It feels weird being able to BE at home for such a long period of time. These past 3 week marks the longest stay I've had in Malaysia over the past year. When I was away for work it was mostly me, the four walls, cable tv, booze and the laptop. It was fun at first since it has been quite awhile since I have lived "alone". Not having to layan anyone but myself. Do whatever I want, whenever I want to. But the novelty and the sense of adventure wore off after 6 months and routine kicked in. Most of the time, there was so much work to do that I end up leaving the office late, only to continue with work at home with beer in hand - because there was just nothing else to do and nowhere else to go, without having to go through the trouble of wrestling my way out of a sea of people who have nothing else to do and nowhere else to go. The only things that kept my sanity in check were my friends, and well, would you like the guess the other thing? No prizes.

Last year will also be remembered as the year I drank the most beer in my entire life. *looks at belly*

Getting flabby now. Should start hitting the gym already. Not to lose weight, but just to get back that sense of fitness. Not getting younger. Even my mum's muscles are more toned than mine and she can carry more weights than me. A bit shameful lah, that's all I'm saying.

Okay. So now I'm back for good, I'm like a lost puppy.


I am so out of touch with everything it's not funny. Apperantly too many things have happened over the year. I'm out of touch with this community, my local friends, technology, hell I'm even out of touch with myself.

One really weird thing now is that I find it out that all my friends from this community are SO hooked up that every time they say/do/go/taste/smell/laugh/touch/see they update it on twitter first before anything else. -_- This phenomenon is really going to take a lot of getting used to.

So, I guess this year will the year where I jump start my own life. Get ME sorted out. Get up to speed with everything and as fast as possible.

Which brings me to something very dear to my heart.

One Third Life Crisis.

Look, it's not fair that 20 year olds and 40/50 year olds with a life/identity crisis get to have an official name for what they are going through. Sure, One Third is not as catchy as Quarter or Half, and will probably never catch on, but hey, 30 year olds with a life/identity crisis have rights just like any 20/40/50 with a life/identity crisis do and it therefore deserves a real name damnit.

I'm turning 30 this year. Oh my god (which just in case you didnt know when translated to BM means: Ya allah tuhanku).

The big Three! Oh!

The funny thing is that whenever someone I know frets about the number I'm always telling them that it's ONLY a number. But now when it has infected me I'm all - It's NOT JUST A FUCKING NUMBER. I'm sweating now Not because I have the urgency to get married tmrw and operate a baby making factory immediately.

I'm sweating now because I still have naught a major achievement to be proud of in the past decade of my life. Or perhaps my memory is so damn short now that I probably had quite a few but forgotten them all because too many brain cells drowned in booze. But I digress. The point is, if I don't remember, it didn't fucking happen. Haha.

Someone I look up to once asked me "you don't have really high ambitions do you?"

I'm not sure if I was supposed to feel insulted, but I wasn't. Because this person is right. By high ambitions, he probably meant that I didn't have that desire to climb the corporate ladder like an aggressive fire breathing dragon lady on crystal meth and having the desire to eventually take over the company and destroy a small country.. or something along those lines. Anyway, he was right. I don't. But that does not mean that I didn't have ambitions. It's just that my priorities in life were different.

Then he asked - what do I want?

I want to be happy.

Then he asked again - Yeah but what will make you happy?

I couldn't answer. Which then got me thinking - WHAT makes me happy? What were my priorities?

After nearly a year, I think I now have a vague idea. In no particular order:

1. My family. I want to spend more time with my nieces. My oh so damn cute can die got com nieces I can't get enough of. I want to be there with them every second they grow up. Make them laugh. Scold them when they are naughty. Buy them nice, pretty things. Watch them beat me at computer games. Take them out for their first beer when they are 18. Dispense auntie-ly advise to them whenever they seek it.

I want to be able take my family out for a holiday. Buy my parents a car. My little sister a car. Dispense big sisterly advise to my sis and brother whenever they seek it. Help out with brother's twins. Hang out with the sis-in-law. Treat the family to makans or a movie sometimes. Buy my sister nice things when I feel that she deserves it.

2. My friends. I want to have hang out with my friends more and get into all sorts of fun, stupid shit with them. Have tonnes more warm and fuzzy memories with them. Have stories about them to tell my grandchildren or at least, my nieces when they grow up. And even when we are all old and grey, still be able to have a beer at the pub, exchanging pictures stories of our grandchildren. When on my deathbed, I want to be able to reflect upon my life and say that I had been a good friend (even though forgetful and scatter brained), and was constantly surrounded with good friends and good times.

3. Myself. Start exercising again. Organise my bloody mess around the house. Start a working filing/action/scheduling system. Own a landed property with MY name on it. Get a bigger car. Go on that crazy backpack round the world trip. Start another blog which focuses on that one hobby and actually commit time and effort to come up with proper content. Update THIS blog a little more regularly because I still do ENJOY IT. Pick up a new hobby. Go for hip hop, belly dancing and pole dancing. GO dancing. Get married one day with someone who's better than me at life and madly in love with me. Have a couple of kids. Adopt a beagle. And if I don't get married, fine. I'll still have my nieces. And TWO dogs. And my own place.

Funny thing about my list is that work was nowhere in it. Yet somehow I'm spending MORE time on it then I pursue the things on my list. Plus I KNOW I don't want to eventually take over the company or anything like that. I just want to do something I enjoy doing, contribute my fair share, and work well with like-minded and awesome colleagues/employers who I actually like enough to want to have a drink with. Only a naive idiot don't know that work IS important. Because without work = no money = no means to hang out with friends or family or do things that make me happy. Also, because of my stupid sense of responsibility I would feel nothing short of guilty if I didn't make it a point to do a good job at my job. Besides, I enjoy it most times. It's not perfect, but I think I can safely say that I liked it much more than my previous jobs who close friends are aware how.... strongly I feel about those.

I want to do too many things, with too little time, and with not enough moolah to go around. That whole work hard play hard saying is easier said than put to practice.

I need to find a balance that works for me. But How. How? HOW? HOW???!?!?!?!

I haven't found the answer to that yet. Which is why I don't feel like I've achieved anything, I suppose. Hence, my one third life crisis.

Perhaps time will tell. I hope it doesn't take too long though. Because for some reason, I keep thinking that time's running out too quickly... and the answers are still nowhere in sight.

Meanwhile, I'll continue bumbling around, trying my best to make things work.

Well, it IS the new year. New decade. New ambition, perhaps. And hopefully new motivation.

So friends & family, please be patient.
This life is still under construction to serve you better.
