This is a remix of Nikki's Cantik and Pretty Like Me combined. It's not a mashup although it samples heavily from the song it was based on as Audi mentioned in his blog entry. It's also bilingual so it's guaranteed NOT to get any airplay and like Selamat Tinggal Genie, I've also kept to the album's production rule of not using a crash cymbal at all on this remix.
I had tremendous fun doing this remix. So much so that I got caught playing the air guitar and air drums a couple of times during the making of it. As dorky as it can be, it sure beats hitting keys and drumpads anytime, especially on days when you really need to get it out of your system. Props to Nikki, Audi and Mr. Manager for their guidance and blessings for me to do this.
If you like this remix, go buy Nikki's sophomore album Hawa, out in stores now where you can hear the tracks in their original state before I mangled them.

Sedang berjalan di kaki lima
Ramai yang pulang dari bekerja
Sehari lagi hampir berlalu
Esok bermula semua semula
Apakah erti hidup ini
Sebuah kitaran tanpa penghujung
Bertambah sayu bila kusedar
Kubersendirian di tengah ramai
Cukup sudah berkali mentari terbit tanpa diriku berteman
Malam disindir pula purnama
Cemburu berkunjung ke hatiku
Melihat pasangan yang berkasih
Seolah dunia ini tercipta hanyalah kerana mereka
- Ad Samad for Nikki's "Semalam Dan Sebelumnya"
Apparently Chris and Rihanna were partying and she was heard yelling Don't Stop The Music and telling the DJ to Pon De Replay all night long. Chris got sick of it and started to beat her up with an Umbrella. Hurt and shocked, she tried calling for S.O.S. (Rescue Me) but no one heard her. She was this close to tell Chris to Break It Off but instead got him to take her into his car and told him Shut Up And Drive to the closest hospital. Now the poor girl has to go to Rehab.
In my bid to become
good better healthier looking, I have restarted my running regiment once more. It always pains me to start over when it comes to working out because it never fails to make me feel like a wuss for not able to perform at my last known good form. In my case, that would be making it on foot from the basement carpark to my apartment on the 10th floor without losing my breath while cussing the numbnut who broke the elevator. At any rate, I think I'm doing good so far. Using the Body Test on the Wii Fit we got a couple of months back as a yardstick, it tells me that I have the fitness level of a 21 year old. As much as I'm flattered that it thinks so, I think it means to say that I act more like a 21 year old than a person of my age. Not to mention horny like one too.
Over the years, I've had my fair share in dealing with various situations in relationships. Being
a geek an IT professional in my day job, I can't help but notice the similiarity of it to the HTTP error codes a web server gives out to the client browser, especially when it comes to rejections. Among the common ones (in accordance to the RFC 2616 standards):
404 Not Found:
Girl not found, i.e. that Dream Girl or The One. Sometimes also used as the response you give when people ask "Why aren't you married yet?" or "Dude, where's your girlfriend/wife/date?"
Request not allowed. Usually to go out on a date, for a long term relationship or sex. Sometimes it is preceded by a 401 Unauthorized (see below). Parents of the girl are also known to issue such response.
Girl doesn't know you (or pretends not to know you). If she does, it is usually followed by the 403 Forbidden error code (see above) like when you ask for her phone number or any other personal details (direct or via a proxy). Also issued by the girl's parents sometimes when they don't know you (or pretend not to know you).
400 Bad Request:
Girl doesn't like your request. Mostly due to that choice of eatery you suggest to go to on that lunch/dinner date, the kinky lingerie you ask her to wear or that "monkey pulls the turnip" karma sutra position that you're eager to try out.
301 Moved permanently:
Girl has moved elsewhere/changed phone numbers. Most likely she has had enough of your stalking or your incessant requests to try out that "monkey pulls the turnip" karma sutra position.
500 Internal Server Error:
Girl having PMS.
503 Service Unavailable:
Girl not answering your phone calls.
With this, it is hoped that fellow
nerds geeks out there will have a proper understanding as to why you're not getting that elusive 200 OK code.
