I foresee that I'll be getting a lot of the above in the days coming now that as of this very minute (1917 hours) on this day, I'm officially into the third decade of my life already. Rest assured, friends and fellow fanatics, it's in the 9th Malaysia Plan.
Anyhow, I'd like to take this opportunity today to thank my parents, whose reproductive organs were essential to my existence and whose level of patience to raise yours truly as the geek he has become today is, on hindsight, quite confounding.

Just like in 2004, May seems to be THE time of year for friends' weddings. Earlier this month, a good friend of the family, Crispian and Jacqui got married. Then today, a dear friend whom I knew at Purdue, Sukma tied the knot with Che Mud. Here's wishing the best to both couples.
Manager: Kamu dah kahwin?
Friend: Sudah, encik.
Manager: Hmm. Ada isteri?
Friend: (Confused) Err... maksud encik?
Manager: Berapa bini?
Friend: Seorang, encik.
Manager: Itu belum kira isteri lagi tu.
Friend: Kenapa pula, encik?
Manager: Jadi macam saya: tiga isteri. Baru "is three".
Bastard. There are some of us here who are still deprived of
Reading scientific journals can sometimes be reassuring for geeks
who are sans girlfriend. For example, a couple of years back, I
read that opposites do not attract in the mating game.
Now recently, they're saying females don't always go for the hottest mate.
It's good to know that despite some swiping, snatching and sweeping away
that's been going on, I still have my chances out there.
I found myself on the Los Dan Faun
set the other day where they were shooting the toilet scene with
Hans Isaac and Adlin Aman Ramlie. It's amazing to see the amount
of work being put to shoot what would end up as a relatively
simple conversational scene in the movie. Anyways, as the crew
was wrangling with the continuity of the scene, I got myself
lost as to what the scene was all about, but I think it had to
do with one of those breakthrough or archimedean
moments. Things like that always happen in the toilet, don't
Speaking of those archimedean moments, Afdlin had me
"enterframe" and then "leave my mark" in that scene. If it
doesn't end up on the cutting floor, I hope it will spark one
of those pointless debates on whether one should do it standing
up or sitting down even when acting it out. Maybe I should've
done it handsfree or akimbo just to confound those who could
even find the time to debate such matters.
Here's a piece of insignificant trivia on yours truly. I have
never actually used the word 'blog'. I hate the word 'blog' and
now I'm forced to say it twice already. I always use the
non-abbreviated form of it, i.e. 'weblog'. Sure there's an extra
syllable to it but at least it doesn't sound like you have a
massive phlegm stuck in your throat and trying to barf it out.
Maybe my dislike of the word 'blog' has to do with my Javanese
roots. The word 'blog' is almost like 'goblok'. It's not nice to
call people dumb, idiot, dimwit, nitwit, numbnut, nincompoop,
stupid, etc. etc. Unless, of course, you happen to be the one who
is the sole reason for our neverending misery on the road and
without fail always blames man-made disasters as "Act of God".
