Fear me

Well it's that day of the week again. Sunday, a.k.a blog-by-today-or-you-lose-your-bet-day. For the uninformed, that is to say everyone else, I have been wagered a rather tempting prize that I will not be able to keep up this once a week updating. It occurs to me as I write this that no mention was made of a minimum word length for my posts during the bet, so I could conceivably just leave a post every Sunday containing a full stop (and maybe a comma if I'm feeling generous) to win the wager. It's been a somewhat interesting week thus far. [...]

You Learn Something New Everyday

Today I learned three things. 1) Durian flesh is yellow, not green. (Roughly one year from the day I learned that milo, despite its green packaging, is not in fact green.) 2) If a giant insect flies into my shirt I will jump up and down on my bed and scream like a little girl. 3) My computer speakers emit a loud squealing noise whenever its wire comes into contact with my skin. In deference to the noble and dignified tradition of scientific inquiry, I spent the 5 mins following that discovery repeatedly assaulting myself with the speaker jack. The [...]

You’re never too old to throw someone into a wall

Well it's been a week since my last proper post, and if I wish to keep to my new resolution to update this place once a week I have less than 24 hours to do so. So I shall do a brief posts on the exciting happenings of the last week. 1) I went to Malacca Since my family trip to Taiwan has been cancelled due to the typhoon there, our family decided to organize another trip to Malacca instead. We ate, we shopped, we ate some more and that was pretty much it really. It was the epitome of [...]

New Template!

I've finally done it. Despite years of resistance and inertia, I've finally taken the huge leap of changing both my facebook profile picture and my blogger template. Some of you traditionalists out there might be frothing at the mouth that I've so casually disregarded my Web heritage, but after keeping the same basic blog template for 5 years, not to mention sticking to the same 15 year old photo of myself as my single profile pic since the day I first pondered the grisly implications of a book full of faces, I think I've done my dues to loyalty, tradition [...]

An-arbitrary-number-that-will-probably-end-up-being-a-nice-round-number-like-10 things I learned in the US (Continued)

And I'm back! To continue the post I left off sometime last month. If you haven't read it yet you can read it here. Or you know, just scroll down. An-arbitrary-number-that-will-probably-end-up-being-a-nice-round-number-like-10 things I learned in the US (Continued). 6) Clubbing is pretty much the same thing everywhere you go. Having attended the vaunted activity known as clubbing in both Singapore and the US, I have come to the conclusion that it's pretty much the same activity no matter where you go. With all my years of clubbing experience (amounting to 5 times over 5 years) I've been subjected to depraved [...]

An-arbitrary-number-that-will-probably-end-up-being-a-nice-round-number-like-10 things I learned in the US

Hello people, it's been a while. I sit here now in my dorm room at CMU, typing my first post as a college student. Those who know me know that I usually only blog in moments of inspiration or sheer boredom, and I would like to clarify that the reason I am typing this entry now is purely due to a love for writing and nothing to do with my being locked out of my dorm room for the past 2 hours after leaving my wallet inside and closing the door. It has been remarked to me by many people, [...]
