A place where nonsense makes more sense than sense itself?

The lifeless geek.

Well...okay I pretty much forgotten that I publish boring blogs once a month or so ever since my last semester or something, couldn't be bothered anymore. Anyways, to keep some possible actual readers up-to-date, I managed to complete all my subjects...this means I technically graduated...as long as I passed my last few exams lol. The exams been over...roughly a month or so but haven't really ventured much into the social world. Everyday I have a setup of pre-determined tasks...

9am-10am = Rise and shine! Its time for another day of unlimited opportunities, ventures, etc...
10am-1pm = Sit in front of TV/PC, depends on mood, most likely PC.
1pm-2pm = Lunch.
2pm-4pm = Nap.
4pm-7pm = More TV/PC time. Take note, TV time = PS2 time.
7pm-8pm = Dinner.
8pm-3am = Even more TV/PC time.
3am-9/10am = Sleep.

And the routine repeats itself =O

Okay, maybe occasionally I do go out on my own but its mostly spent in nearby areas such as Sungei Wang/Low Yat/Berjaya Times Square. Japanese food being the major motivation for even going there though lol. Perks of lone exploration is that you can move around at your own pace and do things you normally wouldn't do in a group and I'm referring mostly to food...not anything suspicious...no one else really likes Jap food for the costs =(

Alright then, let's start my usual idiot bashing rant part of the blog =)

As I have mentioned before...in fact many times...I believe over 90% of my fellow Malaysians have no common sense, and yes...I also believe myself to be the other 10% =)

Anyways, we are finally sending someone into space! Woo hoo! I mean...aside from those rich tourist with nothing better to do with their money, this is a great achievement for our country...or is it? Why do you ask? The answer lies with...yes ladies and gentlemen...why the idiotic 90% part of the population of course!

Okay first of all let me explain how we got our future astronaut. We decided to...make it into a SMS competition! Woo hoo! Its Malaysian Idol/Akademi Fantasia once again where looks trumps talents! Well I don't know the initial number of canditates, but at least they are somewhat suitable? Its pretty much the system that makes it a joke...

Alright onto the second part, when the candidate was finally chosen for whatever reason it was...well I couldn't be bother with this nonsense...Anyways, he was asked on what he plans to do in space and given the usual 90% idiots...guessed what he wants to do yet?

Drumrolls please~

HE GONNA MAKE A F**KING BEVERAGE IN SPACE!!! TO TOP IT OFF, HE'S GONNA PLAY CHILDREN GAMES TOO!!! OMFG!!!

Sigh...if you are curious...what he's planning to make is what we call here a "teh tarik" or directly translated into English as "pulled tea" as a travelling food/drink enthusiast once said on TV lol. The concept of it is that its just like any other tea but simply "pulled", this means the tea is poured from top to bottom from 2 mugs/jugs. This I believe was done to cool off the tea or enchance the taste or something. Now imagine doing it in space. Yup, even kids know the term "gravity". Its pretty much a joke in most publishing papers but we will see if he goes through with it...there are also indications of him wanting to do it for the Malaysian Guiness Book of Jokes...opps I mean Records. Yes, we like to record things like the longest or biggest , so why not make it the first or highest tea made. Ah yes, he also plans to play traditional children games up in space while he's at it. I guess they are trying really hard to backup my claims on the common sense of 90% of the population here.

So thats all folks, I'll be back next time when I have nothing better to do =)

Life's little parody

You know...sometimes life is just simply too predictable. So some of us find solutions to "spice" up our lives while others just simply ignore the obvious and continue their same routine day after day, me being the latter of course. But I decided to perhaps...change my lifestyle a little. This was somewhat decided when I was having a chat with a friend which I have come to know for more than a decade. After going to the movies, we decided to have supper nearby and talk about the usual stuff we always talk about. Pretty much about the facts of life, something those in the 50's onwards usually talk about lol. So we had a talk about how our current lives were like. I really admire his will as his life is not as easy as mine, and yet he strives to improves himself more and more and has dreams. I on the other hand seem to have little or no will at all and have nothing to look forward to. But of course I know myself enough not to ask for anything from anyone. So in my gratitude to my parents, I rarely ask for anything from them and tried my best to be the good son. Although I may not be the best achiever in the family but at least I try not to be a burden as much as possible.

That aside my friend tries to make life more fulfilling by getting more involved in activities such as sports, etc. He knew I have been like this for years as he was there in the same school with me, although he was in a different class but he knew how those people were. So he gave me a suggestion, since I am unable to play sports due to my injuries, perhaps I should try some other activities like reading etc. At first I wasn't taking that seriously but I did consider it. So as we bid farewell I tried to come up with something to do in my free times.

While I was pondering over my life, I decided to watch "Numb3rs". I like to watch these types of serials, for example...CSI, Boston Public etc. So this show was similar to CSI but involves more to using mathematical formulas to solve cases rather than forensic ones. So that week's episode was about how arson cases were getting more frequent and eventually kills a person. So eventually they narrowed down to one of those involved which happens to be just a 17 years old boy who is doing an engineering course in a university. This boy wanted to prove himself or make others acknowledge him as he was an outcast due to his age and intelligence. Eventually he gets involved with a person who was just using him in the end. So this was how his life was like...nobody would talk to him, and they only did when they needed his help on the subject, feeling rejected he finds a friend who was an enviromentalist. So he tries his best to prove himself by getting involved with another person who only sees him as a tool.

As I was watching I realised...sigh...this is me...well, maybe make the situation reversed. I was this dumb kid whose English was his only forte...and the best in the school at the time, in a smart nerdy class...people only come to me for help with English related homeworks and pretty much ignore me once they are done with me. I tried to prove myself by leading the charge in promoting the English club and language which in the end...well...suffice to say, they even forgotten to add my name in the club's list in my school's year end magazine...sigh...I guess my case is more common than I thought...as time passes, so has my mastery of the language and my perception of the society as a whole. The only difference is that I didn't go jump off a bridge, go rampaging in school with a semi-automatic or burn down buildings...the only similarity is the loss of self-esteem and confidence.

So I guess if I can't succeed socially, at least I can still try to enjoy life on my own. So I thought of picking up an old hobby I once had back in the days...

Its fishing~ Yes...I guess I should try go look into the basics first lol. Oh well thats it for now I guess. So until next time, sayonara~
