i’ve started watching Hikaru no Go a few days back. halfway through the series now. the show is mainly about the growth rate of a boy name Hikaru in the competitive world of Go. Go meaning the game, sort of like reversi, but played on a larger-scale board with more complex rules involved.

with a total of 75 episodes and one special, i am captivated by it. be it halfway through the series, i still have relatively no idea how to play the game or to “read” what’s going on from watching the placement of the Go stones between two individuals, i still find it an interesting show.

hope to finish it by tommorrow. oh hey! HAPPY MERDEKA eve…


so i spent 3 days (there goes my weekend) watching 50 episodes of the anime titled “Eureka Seven“. it was worth it. good plot, great character development, a series that blends humor, drama, romance and a bit of horror as well into a nice package. oh, did i mention the artwork is pretty cool too?


Eureka Seven centers around Renton Thurston, the fourteen-year-old son of Adrock Thurston, a military researcher who died saving the world. He lives what he considers a boring life with his mechanic grandfather in a boring town. He loves lifting, a sport similar to surfing but with air as the medium. He dreams of joining the renegade group Gekkostate, led by his idol Holland, a legendary lifter.

An opportunity to do so literally falls into his lap when a large mechanical robot, called the Nirvash typeZERO, and Eureka, a member of Gekkostate, crash into Renton’s room. Renton’s grandfather orders him to deliver a special part to the Nirvash, which reveals the immense power dormant within the typeZERO. Afterwards, Renton is invited to join Gekkostate, where he quickly discovers that the behind-the-scenes life of Gekkostate is hardly as glamorous or as interesting as printed in the glossy pages of their magazine, ray=out. Only one thing makes it all worthwhile for him: the presence of Eureka, the mysterious pilot of the Nirvash.

an interstellar love story, definitely. this show won some awards in 2006. if you’ve ever seen and enjoyed Evangelion, then don’t pass this one up. it’s so much better and more rewarding. Eureka Seven kept me yearning for more till the end and then some.

i wish they’ll make more animes like these.

Matt Damon reprise his roll as Jason Bourne in this third and final installment of the Bourne Trilogy. i don’t really like him actually, kinda dopey looking. his facial expressions lacks that oohm! and his acting is a bit stiff, kind of like he’s just following the script without conveying much emotion into the role. he just doesn’t make a very strong lead actor.

anyway, you need to watch the first (Bourne Identity) and second (Bourne Supremacy) movie to really understand what’s going on in Bourne Ultimatum. old characters come back to play, the plot is not very interesting, the fight scenes are cool, but nothing really stands out.

it’s just an okay watch for an action movie.

got this from an email. wish i had done this back in high school when i got stuck with an exam question. haha.








off days

Posted on: August 22, 2007

“is this suppose to be funny?” i think to myself when i read a reply from my MSN chat. i don’t think so, it sounds kind of lame to me. damn…

i’m having an off day.

nothing seems to be right. i just want to be left alone, doing my own thing, not having to smile or talk to anyone. but it’s not easy is it? some days you just *HAVE* to interact with people around you, else they’ll think you got a problem with them and it’ll escalate and in the long run, make things pretty uncomfortable. but it’s just one of those times when i just don’t feel like talking, don’t feel like looking you in the eye, don’t feel like explaining myself or telling anyone what is going on.

i’m tired.

not the stressed out kind of tired, but the kind that has no rationality behind it, where you feel like you just want to drop everything and not THINK about anything. i know if it’s stress, that’s easy to overcome. just take a breather, joke a bit, chat a bit, walk around a bit. but today, it’s not that. how i wish it was that easy.

i do not want to be here now.

i know i know, i always have the option to leave, get up and go. but it’s not that easy. it’s not a choice. it’s like not wanting to be here now, but perhaps tomorrow its okay to be here. does that makes sense?

i’m not complicated.

as least i don’t think i am. no, i’m definitely not. i just have goals i want to achieve, and at the moment i see lots of obstacles in my path. some i feel i can overcome, some i think will never go away, some i can’t say for sure if it’s achievable but maybe in a few years time things will change for me to be able to fulfill them.

i just wish things will go my way.

this came up in a discussion last night…

if you need to provide your 3 months payslip to apply for a credit card then…

can a Pastor (man of the Church) apply for a credit card? seeing as his income is from donations to the Church?


does your heart flutter when you think of your significant other? maybe your knees go weak whenever you get a phone call from that person? yeah, i’m exaggerating a bit. this probably only happens when you just start a relationship. but how about when your in one after say…a year?

what are the signs? how do you know if the feeling is still there? it’s pretty obviously strong, the attraction i mean when you first start out. but like any relationship, when you start to get into it, getting to know the person better…the flame will slowly die out. wait, don’t get me wrong, i’m not saying it’s going for broke, all i’m suggesting is that it will turn into a routine kinda relationship, a couple that is together but…that’s about it.

sure you’ll still go out together occasionally on dates, watching a movie, dinner, stroll around the park, vacation, shopping etc. but where is the spark? the feeling of missing the other. like in a family, where you see your parents everyday. you don’t miss them right?

so how do you know? how can you tell?

here is my take on it. you could consider what life would be like without that significant other. ask yourself if you can live with that? maybe that’s how you can dig deep inside and be confident enough to say that your still deeply in love.

that’s what i think anyway.



u can regard everything here as fiction, or fanfiction (me being my own fan haha), or messed up ramblings from the deranged mind of a guy in his midlife crisis. whatever. comment as u see fit. the brainless ones go to /purgatory, not that i'm saying ur a zombie. then again seeing as i'm not getting much sleep lately, i probably am one. that said, u'll realise that u can't take legal action against a zombie. cause we've gots diplomatic immuniteh. rawr.
