Traffic Relationship

27 May 2009 00:18

Sometimes if you're stuck in traffic with the same people, mile after mile, they genuinely become your neighbors. These are the people you turn to for solace. You complain to each other. First, you make eye contact. Then, little sympathetic sighs and dismissive waves of disgust.

Once in a while, you even roll down the window and chat. "Hey, can you believe this?"

"Well, this sucks, doesn't it? How is it over in your lane? Sucks?"

"Here, too. Sucks. Guess it sucks everywhere, huh?"

You develop a relationship with these people. Which is why I get upset when somebody tries to pass. It's like they're breaking up the relationship.

Your first response? You're shocked. You didn't see this coming. "What do you mean you're leaving? Why? Where are you going? I thought we agreed we'd stick it out together... What is it -- you want to see other cars? Is that it? I guess you need a space of your own, huh? Well, fine. Go... Just go."

And the great moment of revenge: Two minutes later, they come crawling back. They want back in. But, of course, you don't let them in. You've been hurt, scorned -- make them sweat.

"Hey, look who's back. I guess life in the fast lane didn't work out like you planned. Suddenly I'm looking good to you, huh? Well, get in line, baby."

"Oh, and I hear that I'm eligible for that frequent traveller rebate programme on the LDP now too."

Remaja Dan Cinnamon

19 April 2009 17:55

A quick late evening doodling with the recently released Ableton Live 8 got me marrying Shazzy's "Ketikaku Remaja" with Utada Hikaru's "Apple And Cinnamon".

While I still can't get myself used to Live 8's new way of warping tracks, I think I kinda got the hang of writing blog entries like this on the iPhone using VirtueSoft's BlogWriter.

Baby's Got Phuturecam Back

30 March 2009 03:38

See that image above on the home page? It's back! To the uninitiated, back when this website was running on the old weblog engine, there was an image that simply showed whatever stuff that was captured by my computer's video card at any random moment when it's online. It went away when I introduced the new version of this website (the current iteration). Fans of the Phuturecam can stop with the textual harassment now that I brought it back.

We now return you to your normal scheduled programming.

I Phoney Baloney

14 March 2009 09:05

People who complain about the ridiculous price plans for the iPhone that just made it to our shores via Maxis should get a little bit of perspective. For one, while a mobile phone is a necessity, the iPhone itself is not. It's a nice to have phone. Just like a car is a necessity for most of us, a BMW/Mercedez is not. If you can't afford the iPhone, there's always Sony Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung, LG, etc. just like there's Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, or heck, even Proton. As for the somewhat limited functionality of the iPhone as compared to others (MMS, 3G video calls, etc.), again a BMW doesn't exactly stack well against a hybrid Honda Civic in terms of gas mileage for instance, even though the former is pricier. Catch my drift?

So in case you're still stuck in Steve Job's reality distortion field or just being overly kiasu that you have to get the latest phone in town but can't due to the immenent recession, there ARE other cheaper alternatives out there. And stop preaching to those intent on getting the iPhone over others and just leave them to their own choice of device.

Now that I got that off my chest, if you'll excuse me, I'll be collecting my overpriced limited function portable telephone come March 21 to replace my previously overpriced 4 year old phone that's giving me callouses on my thumb from all the navigation done on its sticky joystick already.

Cantik Like Me

22 February 2009 04:02

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.

Semalam Dan Sebelumnya

21 February 2009 00:01

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
Menyempurnakan kesepianku
Cemburu berkunjung ke hatiku
Melihat pasangan yang berkasih
Seolah dunia ini tercipta hanyalah kerana mereka

- Ad Samad for Nikki's "Semalam Dan Sebelumnya"

The Story Behind Rihanna's Concert Postponement

11 February 2009 23:51

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.

Refitting And Reshaping Myself

10 February 2009 00:16

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.

Common HTTP Error Codes In Relationships

2 February 2009 01:03

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?"

403 Forbidden:
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.

401 Unauthorized:
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.
