the essentials

i bid you welcome to my humble blog space and taking an interest to get know me a little better. my name is Alex. a Chinese at heart, a resident Malaysian. born in the city known as Kuching on the 2nd of July in the year 1978, i grew up among 2 siblings, an older brother and a younger sister in a family of 5.

i graduated with a degree majoring in Information Technology & Information System and currently working on a project in the healthcare industry with a Kuala Lumpur based company but is happily residing in Kuching. i’m an ex-Josephian, college at Informatics Institute and completed my education at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia.

my interest is in reading, watching movies and listening to good music. favorite book would have to be “Wizard’s First Rule” by Terry Goodkind. i’m into science fiction slash fantasy and is currently enjoying the works of George R.R. Martin, specifically his “A Song of Ice and Fire” series. the worst book i’ve ever picked up would be unfortunately by Anne Rice, titled “Memnoch the Devil“. i gave up half-way through the book because the pace is just too slow for my liking and i found it boring as hell. just not my cup of coffee.

too many favorite movies to list, among them i’ll say “a Walk to Remember“, “Butterfly Effect“, “Shrek” and “Shutter“. actually, i don’t like horror all that much (“Shutter” being the only exception so far) but i have a soft spot for good romantic movies. Japanese and Korean dramas are kinda cool too. oh, i also think the best Malaysian movie ever has to go to “Sepet“.

i recommend getting a song of your own if you don’t yet have one. something that can define who you are or holds some special meaning to you on an emotional level. mine is “Right Here Waiting” by Richard Marx. it is the first song that i memorized the whole lyrics to when i was in secondary school.

i don’t drink (more like can’t drink) and fortunately (unfortunately?) don’t smoke as well. i did take up smoking before during the time i was working in Kuala Lumpur, a stressful 9am-9pm job. i’ve kicked the smoking habit. honest.

anyways, don’t get irritated by the lack of capitalization in my sentences. i just don’t like them, really. caps sort of feel like shouting to me. too much mIRC influence i guess. tee hee.

so why did i start this blog? well life for me was tediously repetitious or lacking in variety that i’ve been feeling like i’m getting no where, fast. i realized i should be embracing it and start appreciating my existence more, at least before my time is up. thus, slowly but surely i started changing my lifestyle, basically redefining myself…and that is what lead me to create a blog to call my own.

so join me on my journey of self discovery and perhaps you’ll learn something along the way.

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.
