“Dong Ka Umm Da, Da Sai Ka!” whut doth that meaneth?

  • Princess Mononoke is one of my all time favourite japanese animated film. actually, i love all the films produced by Studio Ghibli. My Neighbour Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Grave of the Fireflies and Castle in the Sky to name but a few. but one of the most prominent thing that really made me fall in love with this movie is the soundtrack. in particular, the theme song for this film. it’s hauntingly beautiful.

    so here i present to you, the Princess Mononoke theme. size: 3.8mb.

      Haritsumeta Yumi no Furueru Tsuru yo
      Tsuki no Hikari ni Zawameku Sonata no Kokoro

      Togisumasareta Yaiba no Utsukushi
      Sono Kissaki ni Yoku Nita Omae no Yokogao

      Kanashimi to Ikari ni Hisomu Makoto no Kokoro wo
      Shiru wa Mori no Sei
      Mononoke Tachi dake
      Mononoke Tachi dake

      In the moonlight I felt your heart
      quiver like a bow-string’s pulse
      In the moon’s pale light
      you looked at me
      Nobody knows your heart
      When the sun has gone
      I see you beautiful and haunting,
      but cold
      Like the blade of a knife
      so sharp, so sweet
      Nobody knows your heart
      All of your sorrow, grief and pain
      locked away in the forests of the night
      your secret heart belongs to the world
      of the things that sigh in the dark,
      of the things that cry in the dark

    this is a hokkien song ranting about smoking and the rising price of cigarettes, chipmunk style. actually it’s not suppose to be chipmunk’ed. i’m scratching my head wondering why it turned out like so after being uploaded. size: 208kb.

    this one’s a sugar-plum, cuppy-cake, gum-drop, pumpy-umpy-umpkin chinese song. oh my goat so cute. someone tell me who sang this pwease. size: 628kb.

    Toby is the cutest little bunny on the planet. Unfortunately, he will DIE on November 6th, 2006 if you don’t help. I rescued him several months ago. I found him under my porch, soaking wet, injured from what appeared to be an attack from an alley cat. I took him in, thinking he had no chance to live from his injuries, but miraculously, he recovered. I have since spent several months nursing him to health. Toby is a fighter, that’s for sure.

    Unfortunately, on November 6th, 2006, Toby will die. I am going to eat him. I am going to take Toby to a butcher to have him slaughter this cute bunny. I will then prepare Toby for a midsummer feast. I have several recipes under consideration, which can be seen, with some pretty graphic images, under the recipe section.

    I don’t want to eat Toby, he is my friend, and he has always been the most loving, adorable pet. However, God as my witness, I will devour this little guy unless I sell 100,00 copies of my book, Save Toby: Only you have the power to save toby. You can help this poor, helpless bunny’s cause by purchasing the book online at Amazon.com by clicking HERE, or by purchasing merchandise at the Savetoby.com online store.

    went to VA last night and came across some of my colleagues. not surprising as most of the ang moh‘s at work is staying in Merdeka Palace. honestly, don’t really like VA very much. with a name like Victoria Arms, i imagined the place to be hip and posh, attracting big crowds of cool teenagers especially on a friday night. sad to see that it is dominantly infested with adults and cheap girls looking for *cough* one night stands and something extra.

    anyway, played some pool with my Project Director and lost (he cheated! :-P) and chit chatted with someone who gleefully pointed out to me which and how many times he had “scored” with the regular girls there. that one 3 times, that one 2, that one is too bitchy i don’t like etc…oh my gosh, Malaysia Boleh? also met some SEGi College peeps, who are pretty darn good pool players btw.

    after midnight i had a case of the munchies and was invited over to a friend’s apartment to try some Jordanian Hummus. i was pretty looking forward to this since last week as my first experience with Hummus was back in KL sometime before Christmas and it made a good lasting impression on me.

    Hummus is a creamy puree use as a spread or dip made from chickpeas and tahini, a sesame seed paste. goes well with assorted types of bread and normally taken at breakfast throughout the Middle East.

    it’s really not difficult to make. all you need is the proper ingredients. everything except the cheese and tahini can be found at Choice Daily, where my friend got them. i wonder if there is a market here for this. it’s really good stuff.


    Hummus, taste better than it looks


    Jordanian cheese


    pita bread


    tahini, ta-hi-ni as in your shit in Mandarin Malay


    extra virgin olive oil, makes a big difference in taste

    i was reading Afdlin Shauki‘s blog when i came across this picture.

    Ikan paus terdampar di kerusi di Pulau Mataking, wanita-wanita jepun yang sentiasa mengambil kesempatan untuk bergambar.

    i literally went rolling on the floor laughing my ass off.
    thanks for the laugh boss. it just made my day =)


    ikan paus a.k.a. whale

    i never had a reason to get a friendster account. with Skype, MSN and recently Meebo (experimenting with), i’m pretty much connected to my friends as it is. until one day a friend pointed me to me to her friendster page to check out her latest uploaded photos of a friend’s birthday gathering. i went, i checked and i couldn’t find any birthday pictures. i figured maybe i need to have an account to be able to view them.

    thus, my friendster virginity has been broken. i signed up, check my friend’s page again and…eh? still no pictures. uh, well since i’m on friendster, mind as well add some friends so i don’t look like a lonely dork. then it started. i added one friend, followed by two and soon spent the whole morning feverently searching for more long lost friends to expand my network. suddenly, it has turned into a video game with no save features or a game over. objective to hunt down every single person i know and get them into my exclusive list. not since the introduction of the brick game (tetris) did i had so much simple joyous fun.

    i cheered when one friend was added successfully. i cursed when i encountered obstacles in the form of emails and surnames. i approached each case like a new game level with its difficulty settings set to random. i took them all on.

    then i realised it was just crazy. what was the point of all this? i just wanted to check out some birthday pictures. silly me. i calmed down, took a deep breath and decided to delete my brand new spanking less than a day old account. but frienster wasn’t about to give me up just yet. they’ve secretly hidden their remove button and gave me lots of other clickable options to explore and get myself lost in. i almost gave up.

    but google saved the day. click here to go to the cancellation form and apologies to those i’ve just added this morning. lol. maybe next time friendster, a devious game is you!
