Mixing and remixing some choonz for a party that I won't be attending. I'll prolly usher in the new year as a homeboy in front of the telly. New year parties are overrated, especially since Y2K. Anyways, here's a sneek peek from the overall 60-over minute megamix. Thank you Hammerhead Rhythm Station, Technics SL-1210 MK5, SBLive!, sample CDs and all ye artists in the mix.
Tens of thousands throng theatres all over to watchLord Of The Rings: Return Of The King.
Yours truly braved it alone through the longs lines at a cinema
to catch the earliest possible show with an available seat for
one. For some reason, single seats are only available at the
back row corner in all showings for the day. But I noticed that

Was thinking to get me a book (or two) at a bookstore too.
But since they're priced rather steep, I wanted to have a quick
glance on the inside to make sure it's gonna be worth parting

we're taught not to judge a book by its cover. What gives?

lame excuse to ask for timeout to go on a vacation eh?

When I was doing my preparatory studies at PPP/ITM, one of the English lecturers handed us this piece of write up for discussion (and I still have that handout kept till today!). It never fails to crack me up reading a fairy tale told in a very pretentious language!

Dr. Nungsari and I share the same alumni that is Purdue University. I've never met him in person ever and the reason I'm putting this up isn't just because he's a fellow alumni but rather what he wrote rings true and that I can definitely relate to some of the things being mentioned in the article. As it is already, Malaysian youths are turning into mindless automotons who lack dynamism as a result of controls being put by the authorities.

This article was written by someone whom I had the privilege to know via her boyfriend who was one of my juniors at uni. It appeared in one of the local dailies in 1999. Bogo and Fern are married to each other now which goes to show that relationships of this kind is very much acheivable.
