You're The Guns of August!

by Barbara Tuchman

Though you're interested in war, what you really want to know is what
causes war. You're out to expose imperialism, militarism, and nationalism for what they
really are. Nevertheless, you're always living in the past and have a hard time dealing
with what's going on today. You're also far more focused on Europe than anywhere else in
the world. A fitting motto for you might be "Guns do kill, but so can

Pictures, Yes

Blogs are usually spiced up with pictures and the like. The problems are:
i) I don't have a digital camera
ii) I have a scanner, but unless you're a stalker there is nothing interesting in my albums (except leng luis, maybe?)
iii)I have a DV cam that can be considered 'old' (2001) and this also gave rise to another problem: hosting

I don't want to spice up my blog with pictures that are grabbed from nowhere and used for motivational posts. Not hinting at any particular blogs, mmkay?

As for my health, I'm glad to say that I'm fully recovered. Aside from my left ear which is constantly ringing and my right which was lukaed a bit (both of which I guess are the consequences of the heavy fever), I'm doing alright.

Am recovering. Having slight difficulty in breathing due to the presence of mucus in...what's the name of the thing between the thracea and the lungs?

Something is wrong with my left ear. Might have something to do with the fever.

Cough cough HACHOO!

Michael Ooi

*cough cough* Equinox was supposed to bring hot hot hot sunshine for us, but the effects had been stunted somewhat by the rain. Which explains my health, *cough cough* that is never good had been made worse. To list all my ailments is almost suicidal, but here goes: asthma, sinusitis, rhinitis, bronchitis etc. etc.

*cough cough* Haiya...any Chinese herbal medicine suitable for pulmonary ailments? 'tis been dampening my life for more than a decade now...

Bought The Catcher in the Rye, Assault at Selonia, Showdown at Centrepoint and Shadows of the Empire. Assault and Showdown are quite good, but Shadows lacked something in certain department. The Catcher in the Rye...I'm bracing myself to read it. From what I've heard, it's quite controvesional. Hmm.

Waking up
at eleven
a shower, no breakfast
Only a cup of coffee
broadbands my knowledge
Frequent headache
for those abandoning caffiene.

Damn brats touching my things
I stared
They run and screamed
To their soccer mums
who didn't raise a voice
when their brats touch my things.

Homeworks undone
No time, no initiative
Administration stuff is not a student's thing.

I think I might
go on a road trip
Up to Lahad Datu.

Stuck in the 70s

I am talking about myself. Yes, heard that right. This is the man who listen to Bee Gees, disco and whatever stuff from the 70s. Why, you might ask?

I found, in 70s music, something that is lacking in today's music. Simple lyrics, harmony and the beat. For me, 70s music is the music for me.

Excuse me, but it's Saturday Night. Don't want to miss the fever :)

You scored as Islam. Your beliefs are most similar to those of Islam. Do more research on Islam and possibly consider taking the shahadah and officially becoming a Muslim, if you aren't already.

Despite the actions of some - who go against the teachings of Islam - Islam is a religion of peace; the word "islam" means "peace through submission to God." "Muslim" means "one who submits to God." Islam is the third of the three Abrahamic faiths, and it shares much with Judaism in Christianity; its differences are the acceptance of Muhammad as the last and final prophet, and the oneness of God - in other words, that Jesus, though he was a revered prophet, was not in fact God, and only one God exists. Apparently the Taliban could not read (though their name means "students"), because the Qur'an states that men and women are equal as believers, and that all believers should be educated and seek knowledge. Modesty in dress and behavior is required in Islam for both men and women to preserve the values of society and move the emphasis from superificial appearance to intelligence, knowledge, and God.

My First Strip

What were you thinking?

Drama suspended, playwright out of ideas

KUCHING, Tuesday: The play 'The Colonel's Diary - Act III' have been suspended indefinitely, sources said.

Alright. To get real with, this is not a 'quit-blogging' message. Instead, my posts that have names with 'Act III' in front of them will be on hold for the time being. Or indefinitely.

Why? Because I feel that it is not the time yet for me to reveal these matter. Maybe when the traffic is high, because it is quite useless if you do not have any readers.

And I agree with rkaru. To quote him:
i blog for my own satisfaction and if people wanna read, go ahead and read. if not, absolutely no loss for me.

Well said.

Just now...

Sis: "I bought soya and chrysanthemum. I'll take the soya, which one you want?"

I feel like I want to laugh out loud or slap her.

Top quality posts within space of a weel *kowtow*

Found this 1896 1/4 cent Sarawak coin in a hole on the floor of a Form 3 class (not my class, of course). Was sitting at a table looking around when I noticed a dark, circular thing covered in dust in the hole the size of a fist. I dug it out and immediately went ballistic.

Condition: Moderately Damaged.

Main question: How did it get there? Was a student bringing his collection to the school? Or was it stuck in the sand, before the construction of the school?

Either way, heh heh heh.
