I really had fun.

Hi there.

Today was really interesting.. We made a 2D game, named Pong (It's sorta like a tennis game from a bird's eye perspective). It wasn't easy at all, I swear. It's something a person can't make without guidance or knowledge. We took 3 hours just to make a Pong game. But the whole lessons was really fun, be it laughing at someone's funny movements or the lecturer's funny gestures. Haha. Surprisingly, the Pong game was fun. Maybe because it's your own work, so it's kinda like satisfaction I guess.. Probably, in the future, making 3D games will definitely be harder. Still, we had fun!

Since the month of April is ending, I decided to get a new desktop look! I messed with a little Photoshop and some texts. It also has a new Rainmeter interface. It can be improved further..

I also wanted to make it look like a Macbook, with the cluttered dock. Haha.

Ugh.. Tomorrow's presentation day, gonna be boring as hell.

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

First careless mistake of the year.

Hi there.

I had more Photoshop lessons today.. Today, it's about making cars look older. It's pretty simple, but I really wanted to go in depth.. Too bad, I do not have Photoshop at home. I downloaded CS4 from a torrent website recently, but it's really annoying. It asks for your serial key every time you open Photoshop. Maybe it wasn't properly cracked.. Purchasing Photoshop is definitely out of the question, it costs a whooping $600~!

I committed my first mistake of the year. I forgot to remove my thumb drive from the computer I used during Photoshop class. If nobody stole it today or tomorrow, I'd be lucky. Anyway, there isn't much important documents in it, just a few horror videos and a death "note" Readme file in it to whoever reads it. It was for fun, and it'd probably scare the crap out of whoever stole it, HAHA. I was planning to purchase a thumb drive anyway, since this thumb drive I used was a few years old.

So there's two kinds of Photoshop lessons, one on Practical and one on Theory. I had Photoshop theory lessons for 4 hours straight. It was tiring. The class watched two movies and supposedly, we were to analyse how producers created the movie. Well, for one, it's mostly common sense. I watched Wall-E and some giant robot and a kid movie, can't remember the name.

That's about it today..

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

The daily life.

Hi there.

So I got a new look, beard and mustache clean shaved and the natural spiked hair, meaning I don't have to blow my hair, messing up my hair with hair wax and doing it wrong. I went to school today and learned more about Photoshop again. I'm downloading a pirated version of Photoshop CS4 and gonna train myself at home as well. I got Zul's guaranteed help in hand drawing hopefully and I WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE MY OWN ART! Sweeeeet.

Instead of having lessons after lunch, I had two consecutive talks. One on Stress Management and another on Perseverance. I was wondering whether Polytechnic students have these kind of talks, because it felt very Secondary-ish. One thing ironic about today was that I'm supposed to have lessons till 5.30pm but when both talks ended, I was allowed to go home already. By then, it was around 3.30pm. I was also supposed to meet a friend at 6pm. Initially, I planned today to be smooth-sailing, after lessons - head to Orchard ION - then chat a little - then return home, and turns out to be wasting more transport fare than usual. What's so ironic? I was the only person who was unhappy about the early dismissal. What a bad coincidence.. Of course, if early dismissal happened on other days, I would be elated like hell..

I need a new cabinet.. for gaming, don't you think?

Rain moar.

Hi there.

Alright.. I had a tiring day at school. First off, I had my first Sports & Wellness lesson, which is equivalent to Physical Education (PE) anyway. It seemed to me that there is no Trim & Fit (TAF) club currently.. Maybe in the future I suppose? I filled in my application for joining the Fitness club and signed up for an objective to finish 42km in 6 months, to earn that awesome T-shirt. Wow.. 42km in 6 months sounds easy, but it's kinda hard right?

I had my first group work and it was pretty smooth.. I don't know all of my group members but they all worked willingly and that's most important right? We passed the submission time, but we still continued without panicking. The girl in my group voluntarily asked to be a presenter. In the past, the presenter's role is thrown around and people rejecting it every time. I'm really surprised.. We managed to finish about 80% of the work, and decided to resume tomorrow.

I noticed that some girls in my class go for good looking men. That pretty much sums up my ITE life already. And one question.. For example, I'm 19 years old now. Can I still continue to advance into Polytechnic after I graduated from ITE, as long as I'm pursuing full-time studies and I can defer my National Service enrollment for as long as I like? I need answers!

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

Really tired. Dead tired.

Hi there..

Sorry, I'll not be able to update tonight because I'm dead tired. During this morning, whoever took the North East Line MRT should know. There was a technical fault and the commuters were not informed early. I stood all morning, tired and waited for 30 minutes. Then, I decided to hail for a taxi but it was filled with people hailing for one too.. So I took a short 5 minutes walk further from the station and finally got into one.. What a terrible day..

I'll be sleeping now.

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

Hi there.

Well.. It's a pretty warm day, isn't it? My lecture today was filled with watching different animated films and then the lecturer goes in-depth with every film. I have to admit, the lecturer's either from China or Japan, his English is just horrible, but I have to add props to his hardwork and stress easily seen by his perspired shirt. I went home with a new friend, who only stays one stop away from me and we talked pretty much about dirty stuff. Haha!

I was talking to a friend just now regarding his plan to initiate a relationship. Certain times, it made me reminisce some of my good memories which are long gone. I didn't have anyone to talk about it, but at least some tried to cheer me up. Just remember.. Love have no boundaries. A man without confidence is as good as nothing. Once you catch her, cling onto her and never let her go [Of course give some privacy lah, LMAO]. What an interesting night I had.

Well. I'm done tonight and I'm gonna head to sleep.

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

It had to happen at the wrong time..

Hi there.

I apologize for not updating during the weekend. Well, because there was nothing to blog about! There was.. Actually.. But I posted it on my gaming blog. I received an broken XBOX360 from a friend and that if I fix it, I would be able to use it for quite a while. Check out my gaming blog at here.

The Circle Line was released last Saturday and it's my first time using it today. I have to say, I'm loving it. It's so convenient! I took less than an hour to reach home, compared to the hour and a half previously. Those who are heading into Dhoby Ghaut at the late morning, say around 8am+.. Beware, the train will be packed almost forever. My friend missed 7 trains in the morning, because nobody wanted to ride on the Circle Line. Probably because they're scared something bad might happen I presume.. So far, no accidents, the Circle Line stations looks way awesome than the others. So far, so good.

Today at school, I learned about Photoshop again. This time, it was about using the Clone Stamp Tool, which I used before during Secondary 2 art lessons. I took the time to recap everything about it and managed to do a decent job of renewing an old photograph. Next, I had to do a game review of a game that I liked. It was tough but I chose Metal Gear Solid 2 - Sons of Liberty, since I finished the game already. After that, had to do some research on XBOX360. Thank goodness for my friend's XBOX360.. Haha.

That's about it..

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

Photoshop is seriously tough.

Hi there.

Today was short, and I had four periods of Games Design Principles.. Wow, you must be like, "What the fuck is that?". If you're a gamer, you should know stuff like gameplay, audio, storyline and stuff like that. It's like that, and much more in-depth. I noticed that my lecturer loves talking about his life.. Sometimes it's funny, and sometimes it's not. Not to mention, I made another friend today and he's just way awesome. Nothing rocks better than sharing the same mind and hobbies. I'm gonna try out Reallife@ITE, which allows me to take a job and also get salary for it. Hopefully it sticks to my busy schedule, which includes heavy Photoshop training, Badminton training and of course, honing my drawing skills.. My current skills are so D&T..

Photoshop is seriously tough to master.. I have a huge ass pile of notes to refer. Still, wouldn't it be better if I had Photoshop at my own computer? Anyone has a spare copy or is willing to loan me the Photoshop disc for 2 years? (Haha!).

I'm done for today. I wanted to sleep.. But I decided to play some games first.

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

Final day of orientation.

Hai thur.

Alright. So today was my final day of orientation. We had a talk in MPH (Multi-Purpose Hall, or just Hall in short) about the various CCAs offered in College Central. Since ITE MacPherson is the main hub for College Central, the other Central Campus had to visit our school for CCA orientation. Pretty cool though, made me feel proud about MacPherson. I wanted to wait for Mun Tat to arrive, who's currently in ITE Tampines, but he took too darn long. After I picked my CCA, I went home.

I picked badminton. What do you expect? Haha. At least, I'll prolly lose some weight before I enter NS after my graduation. I'm kinda liking my badminton mates already, haha. Everything just seems too good to be true. Or probably I haven't had good things happening to my life in the past. Now, I have to save money for badminton rackets.. Ugh. My 6 years old racket is too rusty and the handle felt damp and moldy. Tomorrow, a cousin of mine is offering me a freelance at some business stuff of some sort. Good money earning opportunity I guess.

Life's been pretty good lately.. But I'm pretty sure the good things will end anyway. Hmmm.. Fuck you, pessimism! Life's great!

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

666th post.

Hi there.

It's my 666th post. What does 666 mean? Google it, you dimwits. Hoho.

I had afternoon school today and it was just awesome. I made 7 new friends in a row. Some of them are RTS lovers, some love multiplayer FPS and some MMORPGs crazies. I learned basic Photoshop skills and theory on Gaming Art Styles. Wow, the last time I used a Photoshop application was when Photoshop was still a baby. Now it's like Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended. Wow damn. What a long name.. The lecturer then showed us a video of XBOX360's Project Natal. You know, the stuff that lets you game without a controller? It just looks weird.. I'll be driving a car without a handle, mowing a field which looks as if I'm shoving someone's ass. All in all, it's just weird..

You'll never gonna believe what happened in the MRT while heading home. I was surrounded by 6 hot ladies, some office ladies and some schoolgirls. Holy cow man. There's this schoolgirl who fell towards me because the train moved way too fast and hit me so hard, using me as a shield. Oh my goodness. That moment, seriously, I literally froze. She thanked me and then smiled at me. You know, I WAS TRYING SO DAMN HARD NOT TO SCREAM IN UTMOST JOY. Luckily she got off, but fuck, how I wish we got off the same station, I would've asked her for the number. But I'd prolly be too nervous.. UGHHHHHHHHHH.

Alright. I'm done for today.

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

Interestingly short day.

Hi there.

I had an interesting, short day in school today. There was a talk, explaining the role of the student council in the school, a talk on self-esteem and after that, my class advisor went through some scholarships and awards requirements. I definitely do not want to join the student council because I'll be in ITE for only 2 years. This council might probably be for those who are studying in ITE for at least 4 years (Nitec + Higher Nitec). What pretty much summed up the day, being "interesting" was the self-esteem talk by the school's own student councilor in-charge.

I really loved how we can relax freely in the auditorium unlike in Secondary school.. Most probably because we're being treated as adults already. Surprisingly, it was really quiet! The April 2010 intake gave the talker their fullest attention and clapped whenever necessary. I was really amazed, never expected it. Putting that aside, the talk itself was very well executed. I'm pretty sure I lacked self-esteem which reminded me of Secondary school.. During O levels, there wasn't much positivity. Most of the people were saying how they'll fail this and that.. Spreading the disease around like some epidemic. I just realized that I had the word, "FAIL" in my mind constantly and eventually, became paranoid. I was also told that I should forget the past and forgive. Personally, I will forget whatever happened, but if the person didn't change, I will not forgive.

I found a new inspiration. Abraham Lincoln, thanks to the talk. He failed numerous times, but he never gave up. Hopefully the inspiration will get me through ITE, then NS, then Polytechnic and finally, overseas universities (Cus Singapore is only a gaming distributor, not a gaming hub). This list shows his failures and successes.

  • 1831 - Lost his job
  • 1832 - Defeated in run for Illinois State Legislature
  • 1833 - Failed in business
  • 1834 - Elected to Illinois State Legislature (success)
  • 1835 - Sweetheart died
  • 1836 - Had nervous breakdown
  • 1838 - Defeated in run for Illinois House Speaker
  • 1843 - Defeated in run for nomination for U.S. Congress
  • 1846 - Elected to Congress (success)
  • 1848 - Lost re-nomination
  • 1849 - Rejected for land officer position
  • 1854 - Defeated in run for U.S. Senate
  • 1856 - Defeated in run for nomination for Vice President
  • 1858 - Again defeated in run for U.S. Senate
  • 1860 - Elected President (success)

Ultimately, I became more confident. I made some interactions with my classmates. The fact we shared the same mind, makes it so much easier. I'm.. kinda liking this ITE life, HONESTLY. Haha. Not to mention, my school starts at 2pm tomorrow. Whew!

The worst has yet to come.. Maybe?

Hi there.

I just had the first orientation day at school. You know, the usual stuff, icebreakers, mini-games, to build teamwork. Also, it was awesome that the computer lab is my classroom! There's a games testing room where there are tons of XBOX360s and big ass desktop monitor. Very awesome.

My class is probably the most quiet amongst all. There isn't those group of youngsters who always find the need to yell out of the blue. Of course, I was expecting a sudden yell from anyone.. It did happened anyway, not surprising at all.

Not to mention, it was pretty warm day. In the morning, already I'm perspiring all over. In the afternoon, it was WORSE! I went home, with my Polo-T all drenched. Gosh.

My orientation lasts for 3 days.. After that, it's down to business!

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

Goodbye, beloved holidays.

Hi there.

Yeah. It's the last day of my holidays. I'll be officially starting school tomorrow, without a uniform.. Just great. I wonder what are people gonna think when they see me in school, not wearing the ITE uniform. Oh well. Bad start I guess. So back to today, I did all the stuff I loved doing, be it playing games, modifying games and of course, once again, pimping up my desktop. Here's the result..

Olivia Wilde + Rainmeter.

Before you go all, "Woah John, you dig that?", like of course I dig that, I would dig that anytime. There's nothing wrong in liking girls or if you have a different opinion on girls, I have nothing to say really.. The only bad thing you do to girls is betray them by cohabiting with multiple girls. That's not faithful for all you hungry perverts. Right now, I'm still single, so I still have the freedom to look at ass! *grins*

But seriously, what do you think of my new desktop? I love it. I could imagine everyday, coming back from school, switching on my computer and looking at Olivia's sexy pose in front of my eyes. Hell yeah.

I heard something from my maid which I found to be really unbelievable. There's this woman who was pronounced dead 3 days ago. Sadly, the killer was still on the loose and the woman could not reveal the killer obviously. Then after 3 days, she was alive again! She could not remember anything personal at all, but she remembered what happened to her before she died. As a result, the killer was caught by the police. It's definitely a miracle but I found it unbelievable. 2 doctors pronounced her dead and then after 3 days, she's alive again? That's some creepy shit. Unless the doctors were frauds or the dead woman was acting, there's no way a dead person could revive him/herself. When I told my maid, "Was it an act?", she argued. She said that God helped her or something. I decided to stop the conversation before it gets all nasty. I'm not disrespecting the religion or anything, I just find it hard to believe that someone can get revived at the will of God. My question is.. Can a dead person just revive him/herself all of a sudden?

Last few days, I also asked my maid, "Who came first, the male or the female?". Since babies came out of the female body, wouldn't it be logical that the female was the first human on Earth? Then my maid told me it was man named Adam. God created Adam or something. Then God found out that Adam was very lonely so God created Eve for him. As weird as it sounds, I partially believed it. And then there's the Adam and Eve that we all know of, maybe they were the first pair to discover the art of sexual intercourse as well, since they're the first couple on Earth, right? So much questions, so little time. Haha.

This is my last holiday post for 2009/2010. From tomorrow, you might read on my life in ITE. It's your chance to experience ITE from WORDS! Haha. Hopefully I'll manage to make you feel like an ITE student and of course, remove the negative stereotypes from your brain too.

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

It's getting lesser..

Hi there.

I had a rather busy afternoon today.. Thank goodness it was raining in the early morning. I played with the water gun of some sort and sprayed all the moss and fungi out of the air-conditioner tray. It was fun and I hoped it destroyed all of the mosquitoes' breeding habitats. So far, I only found one mosquito but it was so annoying. Still, at least the plague is getting lesser. Those insects loved to stuff their needles into my legs for no reason. Are mosquitoes attracted to drumsticks? *roll eyes*

For some reason, I went on to Google and searched for ITE. Several ITE threads came up and totally made me more confident. At least for now, I still can wear my ITE uniform with pride regardless of what people think. For those ITE students who still feel low about themselves, trying searching for ITE on Google and read some of the forums shown. Hopefully it might make you feel better about yourself! Don't give up yo!

My current wallpaper. :D

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

Irritating needles.

Hi there.

I.. did not notice that I had not blogged for 4 days! Wow. All these gaming is bringing my mind to another world! I have been playing lots of arcade games lately. I played Pac-Man Championship Edition on the XBOX360 at my friend's house and it was so awesome! Retro awesomeness. Once again, I'm off to search for sites which provides XBOX360 giveaways. An online friend of mine recommended me this site. He won several prizes from the site, including a PSP. Now, I don't know what to do. Should I earn points to earn that XBOX360 Elite or find a job quickly to purchase it?

Look at this.

Apparently, it cost 2700 PTZ. I only have 4 PTZ so far.

To earn PTZ, you need to fully watch videos and enter captchas to earn your points or invite friends. I'm in a dilemma. It would take so long to earn 2700 PTZ.. Sigh, there's so much goodies I want but not enough money. I really wish I could earn an XBOX360 right off the bat! Hot damn. In my dreams! Anyway, if you're interested in using the site, do comment! Lockerz is only a member-invite only site. Comment and I'll invite you if you want.

Talk about today.. Weather forecasts are just bullcrap. It was supposed to rain today but it was just scorching hot in the afternoon. Damn, living at the top floor sucked balls. Not to mention, fucking mosquitoes everywhere. I'm forced to close the windows around my flat and there's little ventilation. I kept perspiring and mosquitoes seemed to love poking their dicks into wet skin. I don't know why air-conditioners need to have a tray beneath it! After a rain, the tray collects water and allows mosquitoes to breed.

3 days ago, a mosquito inspector came into my house. You know what all he does? He went into the kitchen, looked everywhere then into the toilet. After that, he's gone in a swift. WHAT THE FUCK? Does this mean that ONLY kitchens CAN breed mosquitoes but not in other rooms? These inspectors really need to spread out.. Everywhere with water is a possible habitat for mosquitoes! In the past, inspectors were really strict. They searched for stagnant water sources in the house and gave advises. This inspector just comes in, ya-dah ya-dah, okay no mosquitoes! *zhao*

I worry for the house, because I cleared every stagnant water sources, sprayed some insecticide in every room and I'm still seeing these irritating needles. I always feel paranoid around them because you'll never know which mosquito gives the dengue fever. I got bitten thrice already, but thank goodness I'm still in one piece.

Dai, mosquitters, dai!

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

April 4, 2010

All at once.

Hi there.

I woke up this morning with a new friend, a sore throat. Gosh, I can't even speak properly because I have 3 mouth ulcers and man, these ulcers are not giving me an easy time! Every single time the ulcer get touched, it hurts so bad that it gave me a splitting headache! Since it rained so much the past few days, mosquitoes are breeding outside my flat, damn. Wow, I'm loving all of it.

Oh well. My school is starting in a week's time. I still have not gotten my uniform (What is taking them so darn long to call me?). I think I might pay a visit to the school again.. For this week, I'm gonna make the most of my time before school starts. I'll see..

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

Hi there.

When I was roaming through the forum in a General section, I stumbled upon this thread and found it rather disturbing and sad.

Do read the article here.

To sum it up, it was a schoolgirl who committed suicide because she was bullied by her own classmates. The classmates abused her in the school library, the lunchroom and the hallways and threw a canned drink at her as she walked home. Just thinking of the bullies makes me sick. What the hell were they thinking? I can't imagine how her parents would feel after bringing her up for years and only to pass away from a stupid, mindless bullying ploy. Those 6 bullies shall get their taste of the medicine.

Some of you may think she's from Ireland and we're from Singapore, there's a difference so why care about it at all? Yes, there's a difference. Some people can tolerate bullying but some cannot. We're all humans with emotions, regardless of where we're from. I really hope something like this doesn't happen in Singapore, because there are bullies around too. I hope she'll rest in peace and get her revenge from above.

Bottomline is.. Think before you do something stupid which might affect you.

Thanks for reading. Peace out.

Why is life so cruel to me?

Hi there.

This afternoon, I was watching some Youtube videos until I decided to revisit the Bioware forums. On top of the Bioware forums, there was a bazaar notice which will start on the 6th of April. There were well over 400+ prizes, each of it were so tempting! One of the prizes caught my eyes. It was a Mass Effect special edition XBOX360! A fully skinned XBOX360 with the Mass Effect theme! I was so hyped! I went to check on my auction tokens and I had over 4000+ tokens. I never felt so excited in my life.. I checked the rules and of course, the damn auction is ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE UNITED STATES! Literally, my expression was like, "WAH?!". Why is life so cruel to me? Another incident was also for a free XBOX360 Elite.. It was a contest to find missing letters to a word. I worked so damn hard, finding the missing letters. After I found the word, a guy beat me to it by a minute! I was utterly speechless.

I have never won a lucky draw, a contest or anything pertaining to expensive giveaways. I entered in draws for my whole life, never once I won something. During my graduation night, I was so eager to win something, at least an iPod or something. Well, you guessed right, I never won a single thing. Even in MMORPG.com, there was always a lucky draw going on and the prizes were mostly laptops, video cards and consoles, and I never won once! SIGH SIGH SIGH!

Of course, I have to be compassionate.. There are people who never won once in their life as well. I guess I'll get my chance one day. Hmm.

Oh yeah, I have your sextape here!

And the new Youtube layout sucked! Don't you think? I really hope it's just an April Fools' joke..

Thanks for reading. Peace out.
