I thought I've always been afraid of being involved.

Everything's possible with the right methods, keys and management. It depends on how you take things.

For seconds, minutes, hours, days, months and years, I always knew I had you by my side. Just that I was foolish enough to never step up, and do what's right.

Maybe it's because I respected you after all this while. Maybe it's because..I didn't want you to know.

But if you were to not know, then when are you going to know?

And I couldn't stand watching you hanging by decisions. And as I told a lot of people; when you're hanging onto the edge of a cliff, it's either you let go, or you pull yourself up.

Be yourself; and be straightforward.

For 4 years, I've been hanging onto the edge of a cliff without knowing. But I allowed you to see me, and I've pulled myself up instead of letting go; so I could be with you.

Well, sleepyhead, I miss you! Have a great day. Interpret the picture below and see if you understand how I feel at the moment.

I've always loved Steve Vai, because he's the easiest person to see and tell how he expresses his emotions in a song when you watch him live. Having the hands of ten guitarists, and most importantly; the sould of a thousand guitarist, that's how beautiful you make me feel. As for months, I've been depressed, feeling worried, and helpless at times. But with you, I know you. You always came to me when you had problems, therefore, I know you.

One Decaf, Venti, infinite shots of Love and Glacius' syrup over Ning's specially made drink!

I'm coming home in a month's plus time! I can't want to see you soon. Looks like I'm not going back to Penang genuinely becuase of my family, again. Hehehehehehehehehehehehehehehe.

You know that I love you. :)

Dei. Emo gila. Hollow Years is being played on my playlist now =.=

And It Begins!

Let me tell you what's up.

I've been working like mad.
I've been missing out on classes sometimes
I've been learning new things which are irrelevant to my studies these days.
I've been .. thinking.

And my mid terms starts in about 3 hours time. Wonderful isn't it? :D

The Worst Day At Work.

.. Seriously.  I've been through some unimaginable situations before, and I can't believe that I just went through one that is very........ insane.

It's more to like.. life and death about getting a complain soon .. But..

.. ugh.


Anyways, I've got facebook now!  Still uploading pictures so that it won't look so plain.  HAHAHAHAHAHAH

Tender Surrender.

I'm writing this right after I finished the music tag post which is prior to this entry. And.. I'm in one of those moments where I'm "being one" with music again. That stage where I blend in perfectly like a chameleon, trying to understand a certain song when it's instrumental, unlocking its hidden messages.

Back in 2004, I did this under the tutoring of my guitar instructor, Kelvyn Yeang, only because he touched a bit on the topic. Not many beginner musicians would sit down and understand melodies like a written poem.

And I did that again. Like its title, Tender Surrender, I have no idea why..

... But I'm at a stage where I'm willing to give up everything I have, and just.. relax ...

Am I overdoing myself, again or what? It's impossible! I enjoy work in every way, and .. I don't complain although I'm shit tired.

What do I really want, anyways?

It's time for isolation again, I suppose, until I stablise myself once again ..

... Mmm.. Jordan Rudess .....

Music Tag.

Something to ease my current situation.. Thanks Amy!

1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answer to the question even if it doesn't make any sense. No cheating.
4. With the answers, give your comments on how it relates to the questions.
5. Tag 5 people.

How are you feeling today?
Avril Lavigne - Girlfriend

..... probably happy in some areas? Lyrics have nothing to do wiht how I feel. Maybe I would want to steal some hot girlfriends from some ugly boyfriends during work .. lol

Will you get far in life?
Joe Satriani - Starry Night

Perfect song for the perfect question .. I always wanted to drift somewhere really far away. Actually, I've been always drifting towards a certain direction, even if it's right or wrong ..

How do your friends see you?
Silverchair - The Greatest View

How's this now .. Maybe they're watching me from afar and I don't know that they really do care at times? I'm pretty stubborn. Sigh.

Will you get married?
Dream Theater - The Spirit Carries On

If I take the lyrics seriously, I'm not afraid of getting married during this life, but maybe in another life, where I hope to be a better person than I am now?

What is your best friend's theme song?
Metallica - Master of Puppets

.. Wrong song.. Lol

What is the story of your life?
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Otherside

Always wondering where I'll end up at times. Best thing for me to do is just to move on without even planning. It's a bad thing, I know, but.. It's not exactly a good thing .. I gotta take it on the other side... :)

What was high school life like?
Dream Theater - Take Away My Pain

Probably the first thing I would go through to make me forget my problems I face at home and outside at times, I guess?

How can you get ahead in life?
Joe Satriani - The Extremist

Well, this song is obviously an instrumental hit. But this song is like, a song where you play to motivate yourself to do something right, and hard. It's perfect to explain what I do, I guess? When I set my mind on something, I'll just move on without looking back. Besides, it's not like there's an undo button for us or something.

What is the best thing about your friends?
Children of Bodom - Touch Like An Angel of Death.

... I'll try to add some optimism to this song.. I guess .. They're the biggest impact in my life no matter whatever drastic happens? hah... ugh. Mind's going blank

What's in store for this weekend?
Matina McBride feat. Jim Brickman - My Valentine.

.. A date? Hey. I'm working this weekend at Starbucks la..what date..what nonsense -_-

Describe your grandparents.
Paku - Bila Kau Rheda

.. I've never knew my grandparents, really. And with that said, I never understood what the hell this song meant because my Malay sucks.

How's your life going?
Ddie - Sangsi

Oh my God. I love this song. Some parts of the lyrics explain the worst parts of my life, I guess. Mmmm. Meeting the people we never expected to meet - or have met somewhere before..... mmm..

What song will they play at your funeral?
Kid Rock - Only God Knows Why (after I tapped forward because the song previously before this was BSB's Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely)

I have a lot of unanswered questions in life. And sometimes, I'm confused with the things I'm doing, the mistakes I've done, and the paths I've set for myself. It's indecisive, but we have to go through trial and errors to really learn what's right and wrong for all of us, I suppose.

How the world sees you?
FF VII: Advent Children OST - One Winged Angel (Sephiroth's Theme)

Sephiroth; known to be the greek version of Lucifer, being brought to life in the famous RPG game known as the Final Fantasy series. Final Fantasy 7 received the most fanbase, I feel, and is still my favourite game among the other series. The lyrics to this song is sung in greek, but composed by Nobuo Uematsu, a well known Japanese composer. And in the previous version, the lyrics mean nothing but how powerful Sephiroth is and how he will continue to bring death and implying fear into those who stand in his way.

Maybe I have a different impact upon other people? I've always tried to be kind to those around me, but then again, I'm known to have various masks depending on who I'm with..

Do people secretly lust after you?
Prince - Kiss

................................................................................................. WHAT A BLOODY SONG FOR A QUESTION LIKE THIS. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHA! "I just want your extra time, and your kiss" LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

How can you make yourself happy?
Metallica - The Thing That Should Not Be.

Being someone else that I'm not? That used to make me happy. But I'm happier being myself now thanks to those around me :)

What should you do with your life?
Metallica - The Unforgiven II

Not forgive those who are against me? Or just pick up, and move on and leave those who go against me .. ? What a song for this question. Lol

Will you ever have children?
Ocean of Fire - Seashell Song

I admit I love this song a lot.. But.. Duh, Seashell song. Probably going to have kids in Hawaii or something. Lol

What song would you strip to?
Ocean of Fire - Dreamin'

... What, slow strip show ah. Oh God. If Kelvyn ever finds this blog, he would have the wrong image of his own song.. Lol

What does your mom think of you?
Dream Theater - Take Away My Pain

As a son, I admit that I've been nothing but a hassle and a burden to my mother due to my attitude. Maybe this trip to KL for my studies would make her and myself appreciate each other more. Only time can tell, but I can't be bothered at the moment.

What is your deep dark secret?
Hammerfall - Always Will Be

This song, seriously, has beautiful lyrics. And I guess in my love life, there are times that I can never let go of the one that I've treasured the most, somehow.

What is your mortal enemy's theme song?
Bust a Move 2 OST - Here Comes Trouble.

Oh puki. Meaning to say, s/he's going own me anytime -_-

What is your personality like?
Puddle of Mudd - Blurry

Like the masks I wear - it's hard to decypher what's going on in my mind every second..

What song will be played at your wedding?
Steve Vai - Tender Surrender

.. I hope I would be the one playing this song DURING my wedding! This song is beautiful!!!!!!!


Insane. Work is just getting more fun, and insane at the same time. Today, I'm extremely exhausted. I feel the fatigue getting onto me very very soon.


I'm blank at the moment. Extremely random blog. I know I nearly threw up while I was at work just now.. no idea why .. Gah.

There's more work tomorrow! From 2 pm till.. God knows when. Wish me all the luck please.. I really need it.. T_T

Fery, you memang dosa giler... adui.. hohohoho..

Some Shitty Customer Care.

As you all know, I just got my laptop back. Mysteriously diagnosed with a burnt motherboard/BIOS system, and guess what? I asked for diagnosis for my laptop and I never got one in the end. Only an assumption, but no report of what really happened - before I got my receipt.

This is my worst experience with these stupid official service centres for a certain product.

Which means that the person who sent my laptop into the service centre is not at fault. But whoever is behind the organisation, training of the staffs and allocation of workers on wherever they're mounted to, is at fault.

I received a call last week, saying that I won't be able to receive my laptop back too quick only because they have to wait for their parts to replace my laptop's motherboard.

Which results to bad quality control problem - until a certain extend that all Compaq/HP laptops actually had the same problem and they eventually ran out of parts due to underestimated units?

Well, I leave the imagination up to you, but whatever's going through your mind is definitely correct, even if an elephant crapped all over their factories or an alien abduction took place and rigged everything because they hate commercialised nonsense, and it's going to be powered by a Windows operating system.

Or better still, Apple supporters decided to tear everything down that relates to Windows.

So, let's not focus on the hatred I have against Vista this time, but plain ol' customer service. For HP, it's extremely bad. If it was on a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give it a rating of -59156572234.55.


Firstly, I called the customer care centre, or whatever that place is called, a total of 6 times. And out of 6 times, my call was mysteriously rejected 4 times. Dumb, isn't it? Must've been those damned caller IDs hooked onto their phones.

And when I called for the first time, somewhere around 8.30am, 2 days ago, I gave in every particulars required, and they said that their engineer would call me back. Guess what? Typical Malaysian service - they would forget the bloody job on the next day. Plus it was on a Monday, so the person who answered my call was either drunk, emo, suffering from the Monday Blues, or all of those at once. After all, that croaking in his voice explains everything anyways. If you heard the conversation, I would've been his English teacher because I made him repeat whatever he said due to his distorted voice.

Imagine Louis Armstrong - whose nuts got bitten off by a Tasmanian Devil.

And I'm not sure how telephones work, but I'm sure once you lift it up, dial the numbers you wish to dial, it (somehow) should direct you to whoever you wish to speak to. Unfortunately, from this service, I waited for 4 hours and no call from any engineers. I don't blame the engineers, because this croaky frog just forgot about it. Even if he did not forget about it, I swear that something dropped so hard on his head, till he got an amnesia.

And I hope he forgets who he is if he has that amnesia.

.. And die a slow death, of course.

That's the first point. Secondly, would be the wonderful database system they have. When I mention the words, HP, or Hewlett Packard, or whatever that name is called, you should already know that they're an established computer company. Like Z'Tronics, Acer, Asus, Dell, so on and so forth. And this next problem I faced, is rather.. cute.

I called the Customer Crap Centre again, and I admit that half of it was my fault because I didn't have my invoice with me. But that doesn't mean that I'm restricted to know of my unit's status when I've already submitted my details to HP themselves. I remember in Nokia, it works in a way that you don't need to show them what phone you have, or what serial number is mounted on the phone, or the battery, or the invoice number related to the phone you purchased, or anything. Just give them your last name, confirm it, and they'll come up with your whole transaction, and status of any sort.

As for HP, when they seem to be proud sponsorships in conjunction to some of the major companies in this world, they can't even won't even bother trying to find out my unit status through my name, handphone number confirmation, IC, date of the invoice, etc. It's like, everything revolves around a couple of bloody number that's 2400xxxxxx. And without that, you will lose your genitals, somehow.

It's funny? I thought there's this term saying that "The Customer's Always Right". I demanded to know of my unit's status and I was restricted, like as if I was speaking on behalf of Mr. Jean Louis Sibert. Hello? I have full rights because I paid a bloody lum sum of RM4k just for that laptop and I don't even have the rights to find out my unit's status?

Oh. I must've missed out some bribery fees.

Or maybe it's because I'm Eurasian. Or maybe it's because I bought it from Penang and it's kampung compared to units being purchased from Kuala Lumpur.

Or maybe the person who intercepted my phone had buttocks intercourse and was pissed about it being too imperfect because I could hear that in his tone.

So, that only led me to one choice. Since telecommunication is so bad in HP, I went to the HQ itself, and demanded to know of my unit's status. You know what? It only took the person who served me 5 minutes just to find out that I could pick up my laptop the next day after 10am.

You see, that's efficiency over there. But the hassle that I had to go through to achieve that customer efficiency was horrible. In fact, go save more cost by disabling the telecommunication system or customer care department because it's no different from having one and not having one. In the end, you serve customers badly.

Maybe you don't serve customers badly, but if that was the case, why was I treated in a way that I felt not welcomed by HP? It's not like I purchased this laptop without tax, or a pirated one? The only thing I did was to change the RAM from 1gb to 2gbs because Vista is just plain nonsense on 1gbs of RAM.

Now with that said, it's funny how your employers are being trained to say something like, "I'm sorry sir, but your laptop is being put on hold because...". That is the exact same thing I got on the next day, when I went to pick up my laptop at 10.30am. As stated in the post, I am able to receive my laptop anytime after 10am, and that was according to one of the person working there.

So you're telling me that my laptop was still being put on hold? My laptop got raped by a siberian tiger? Or Bill Gates mysteriously decided to enhance my laptop?

I did not know of what reason was the cause and that's the problem, you see? They weren't trained to tell me the problems being caused for my laptop's delay after someone mentions it only once.

I hate to say this, but I had to rudely interrupt her and explain my situation. THEN only this girl by the counter, decided to check with the engineer and guess what? My laptop was ready.

And I realised one thing. Although I know that I am able to pick up my laptop after 10am on that day, but I did not receive a call or a notification saying that my laptop was available. Maybe they wanted to practice that Edison Chen scam, but my laptop's free from pornography, sorry!

So, an organisation with bad customer service, with workers who are constantly facing miscommunication problems, no notifications when whatever you sent in is ready, and extremely rude Indians on the customer service department makes it rather interesting.

In fact, I think am sure that the Indian parking attendants who works at my place are much more polite in asking for parking fees compared to those hooligans.

And from what I see is that, the lower you pay them, the more polite and efficient they are in their work. So whatever it is, just cut everybody's pay in the customer care department. It'll work somehow.

I am satisfied that I got my laptop back, but I'm rather embarassed that it has a HP logo. In fact, I had bad experiences with HP before and this just keeps on piling up somehow. I was planning to change my laptop soon after I save money, and until then, I just can't wait.

And if you think that I don't have the rights to publicise all this on this blog, you're wrong in every way. It all comes back that I'm still extremely disappointed with the service you all provided. You should re-train everybody and make sure they've got a feminine touch, so they don't sound like assholes over the phone.

Minor Updates..?

Well, for those who reads, and have been tagging my tagboard, and wonder why I don't post anything BUT reply whatever I see on my tag board, it's simple.

I hate blogging through the iPod Touch. You can consider myself being.. limited somehow. Until you use one, then you'll know what I mean. Haha.

Anyways, I'm catching up real fine with my odd schedule. One thing's for sure. My housemate sees me way less compared to my friends seeing me, regardless if it's at work, or in college, or somewhere.

My schedule is that I wake up, I go to college, I come back from college, I take a 1-2 hour nap, I go to work, I come back from work, I MIGHT do my laundry, and then I go to sleep. If I don't do my laundry, I have a quick bath, and I drop dead on the bed.

But that's not the point. So far, I've met really beautiful people (not appearance wise, you bloody perverts). My collegemates, I guess? Although I do feel awkward because.. well, I'm a guy and they're all girls, but that doesn't matter.

What really makes me smile is to know that they're extremely sarcastic very very kind. I have met people like those before, but they don't hail from Penang, surprisingly.

I don't know. And these people, they're not even from West Malaysia. And the last time I went to East Malaysia, my Kuching friends were so... friendly.

I can't find any other synonyms for friendly, and it's a little bit understated.

I did prefer Kuching compared to Penang at one point because of the hospitality from the locals there though!

But, whatever it is. It's a fact in life that it's not appropriate for us to look back on the mistakes we've done, the people we've lost due to our mistakes, and the pain we've felt. After all, we're all just humans, and we do not have the power to turn back time.

So that only leaves most of us with one choice - to appreciate whatever we have now, make full use of whatever we're good at, and to prepare for the future.

Oh well.

Anyways, I am glad for those who I still hold close to me, the people I've recently met and gotten closer to, the things that happened to me, the people that inspires me to take music seriously, my partners @ starbucks for teaching me what needs to be done in the store and so many more..

And you must've noticed one obvious thing. I didn't state your name/names here about being grateful for. Well, it could be anybody, that's right. But the problem is, only those who know I'm really close to, KNOW they're appreciated by me through the things I do.

Thanks, you guys! Both in KL and Penang.

Penang friends: I miss you guys!!! JOYCEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!! Haha .. I will be going back to Penang on one of the weekends probably next month. Since as a part timer in Starbucks, I just need to work for 20 hours per month, and I can get the rest of the days off. But I feel that's not the right thing to do because it'll kill my pay with lack of working hours.

I think I'll plan a Penang trip in June. I'll meet up with those I said that I will meet up with, I guess? I've neglected those who were once close to me, so.. you get what I mean at this point.

And for those in KL; the May 9th, 10th and 11th trip/party is a good sign to show what I mean by being close. LOL.

Tak tau lah.

Well, that's it from me. For those who are in KL/Selangor/Mutiara Damansara, please do drop by Starbucks Ikano if you wish to meet up!

And I also thank my laptop's RAM or BIOS to screw up on me, by the way! Because of that, I have more than enough time for MORE music! Hahahahahahahaha.

PS. Recording session resumes this Friday @ The Ark Studios in TTDI under Iz's new song, entitled Bersama/Together ..

Friday, April 11, 2008



I will be offline till Tuesday or Wednesday. My laptop mysteriously died on me, so I will be somewhat.. Uncontactable. Forthose who needs to keep in touch regarding certain issues, you know how to get me.. Either email or phone. But if it's really important, just SMS me or something.

If you don't have my contact.. Then just too bad.. xD

The Secret.

The Secret to what?

I have no idea how to explain what I just watched. Probably the most beautiful thing ever. It's a documentary more onto self-help (not to say that I have serious problems, but it's always nice to know!) and it's extremely good!

I'm not sure how you can pick it up, but here's a link from wikipedia to explain how it is.

Secrets being taught to us and becomes knowledge, and as for me, I like to share beneficial knowledge. The reason why I've blogged endlessly regarding the stuff I have been doing and my musical journey, is because that you might or might not need it!

After all, I did read from the great guitarist, Joe Satriani, say "Knowledge is power!". And local guitarist, Kelvyn Yeang, says something about.. A man's wealth really shows if he shares his knowledge .. Or something like that. I would gladly copy and paste the exact same thing he said, but it's either in his friendster or myspace blog. If I do that now, I won't be able to work well tonight.

I got this file through Karen, and I'm grateful for it (Thanks girl!!!). Although the break up took place, it is some parts of The Secret I've applied through the reasonings I've given her - and myself, to stay strong though we've parted.

After all, it is true that I am happy seeing her smile, even if I'm not the one making her smile. It's a great feeling to let go of someone for something better.

Besides that, I've been grateful for the people I've met, the things I've done, and whatever I have now. After all, don't forget that there are others who would want to be in our shoes regardless who we are. So please, appreciate yourselves, share whatever you have, and always think positive. Negative thoughts gets you nowhere like a neverending loop.

Now if you all are interested in what I've watched, please ask for a copy. I would be more than glad to pass it to you and you will learn a thing or two!

Oh well! Enough of that. Time to sleep, and tomorrow shall be a better day.

Guitar Recording Progress..?

I'm extremely tired at the moment, no thanks to my bloody laundry last night. I was way too tired. But nevermind about that, because last night was so fruitful!

I recorded my first draft guitars for Iz, and out of 8 bars, he only liked the 2nd. The other 7 bars failed. And that's quite a bit, I think. Had to practically re-write the whole thing. that means that I had to re-write a 25 second solo.

And one thing about me, a lot of people know me when it comes to guitars, I can never play melodious stuff. Until last night.

Another different side of me in the guitar was discovered, I guess? The one that I've been searching for after all this while. It's like, implanting my soul into the guitar, and use it to speak my thoughts out, instead of vague shredding notes, I guess.

And finally! In a recording, or writing a solo, I managed to switch back and forth the neck to bridge pickup, and ending the solo with the neck pickup. I keep forgetting that there are a few pickups installed into this thing for a reason; and that is, it's meant to be used. Huuuu..

I'm digging the guitar solo now, even if it's a draft. EXCEPT for the bloody notes that went out of timing.

But the thing that turns me off is that when I hit the first few notes, it sounds like a solo from Dream Theater's Another Day or something. Buh. But it doesn't sound like it, because you know why? Simple:

I can never catch up with John Petrucci.

Wheee! So I'm not copying his melodious works in any way. Hahaha.

One reason why it sounds good is because we have to thank the technology of recording multiple layers of guitars. Wheeee!

And the recording session this Saturday isn't confirmed. In fact, I don't even know when it is. So till then, I'll leave another entry regarding those plans. *Burp*

Time for college..

The Sessionist.

I received an SMS from Iz, and I'll be back in the music scene, once again, after my long absence. Regardless if I'm from Penang or now based in Selangor, the music scene should be known to be as one. Only because we need ALL the support we can get in our own ways!

I won't be producing tracks or music because Iz has already a really good beat going on for one of his songs, which will be featured in his single.

This is going to be my first semi-Malay track to record my guitar nonsense on! I'm looking forward, and I would want to do my best; not because of money, but because how I looooooooooooooooooooove how this song sounds like! Wheeeeeeeeeee!

Can't wait!

And by the way, this is my 2nd time doing official recording for an album, even if it's an EP, but my very first time recording in an actual studio! Which means that this is an invitation for you to come along, if you're interested to have a little sneak peak of whatever Iz has recorded (oops!), and what I will be doing.

I will have to get things prepared real soon. Ugh. This is the only thing I've feared right after I took up a job. :(

Oh! On another note, please head to Iz's site, and vote for his single which is being played on and .. Remember, even the best entertainers are nothing if there aren't people like YOU to support them!

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee work tonight T_T

And Again..

.. She asked for a break.

I don't know if I should be happy for sad for myself, because I can't feel anything at all.

I'm numb.


Hmmm ..

Sunday, April 6, 2008

And So..

I'm telling you, work is insane. Now I know what they mean by work is tiring. I've never experienced stuff this hectic before.

.. Which is good! I'm working in somewhat.. an established company, instead of some family-based business. Working in my mum's travel agency is not considered as work, but a waste of time.

I mean.. spending my time going online and doing nothing for a few hours, and that's helping out, to her.

But screw that -lah-. Hohoho. I guess both work and money are my motivation to go on?

... Except for B.o.D. If you all come by Ikano during my work shifts, and don't see me there, I'm the B.o.D. lol

Tired gila. I'll sleep a little bit later. hohoho

2nd Day of Work

I never posted the first day because.. I was dead tired. Not because of work, but because of insomnia taking over my nights.. It sucks, really.

Tomorrow's another day. Nothing much at work. It sucks being the new guy because.. I don't know how to serve customers! Besides bringing their drinks over or something.

One thing I need to brush up on. I need to speak properly. Ugh. I mumble a lot, I guess. Ugh.

I'm heading to the studio again tomorrow, then it's off for work. I don't know what the hell I can do. Haha. I'm confused. I plan to go to the gym tomorrow, but I don't know how to schedule myself now..

And I think I might go to work when I get stoned very soon. I keep listening to.. Bob Marley. I always wanted to listen to his records and now I get the chance; provided if I don't wash the dishes, which is the only thing I do due to my .. qualification. Hohohoho.

Hmmm. How ah?

Blues sound so damned good. Eric Johnson has the best bluesy sound on stage to me.. ooooooohh... Emotions........

Wheee The Ark studios! XD

Trophy Attained!

Don't mind me. I've always been a fan of Predators when I first found out what they really were (way before the AvP movies.. the 2nd one sucked big time, by the way), and when they kill a worthy human during their humid summer hunting season, they collect either human skulls, or alien heads (whatever you call them).

Like.. this

For my side, this is MY thophy..

And I start work tomorrow :D..

I'm working under Starbucks! Most importantly - I HAVE A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

iRaped iPod

Nope, this isn't a belated April Fool's joke, nor is it a new application for the iPod Touch.

I was in college (and still in the crap internet lab), while waiting for my 12pm class to start, and I was going online with my iPod somewhere near the canteen.

Until I opened a couple of sites, and there's more reason to hate Microsoft if you love them so much. What happened?

I opened, and wanted to sign in, but once that site loaded, my iPod hung, and I had no choice but to force shutdown the iPod.

.. Which resulted it to automatically enter RECOVERY mode.

AND I HATE IT WHEN IT ENTERS RECOVERY MODE! I have killed my iPod, and now, I will HAVE to re-jailbreak my iPod (for God knows how many times), and it'll probably take my whole night off AGAIN.

Experienced slight insomnia last night; but not as bad compared to last night and the night before, but it's taking a serious toll on my health soon. Plus I'll be working soon.. I'm not in a good position.

.. Argh! I was listening to Dream Theater's Learning to Live and it died on me! wtf

I'll leave notes here again so I'd remember how to re-jailbreak my iPod all the way from version 1.1.1 .. urgh.

1) downgrade to firmware version 1.1.1
2) go to via the iPod's Safari and download the
3) update all community services/whatever it's called in the and add this source - or some link like that. I saved the actual link in the laptop..
4) search and install Oktoprep, and prepare 1.1.1 for 1.1.2's jailbreak
5) head to iTunes, SHIFT-CLICK (not click!) on "Update" and force-update the iPod with the 1.1.2 *.rpsw file.
6) with the iPod connected to iTunes, shut down iTunes, use Task Manager (for windows) to shut down all Apple-related programmes (AppleMobileDevice..etc)
7) search for 1.1.2 jailbreak (downloadable online - but I've donwloaded it already) files, and run the windows.bat.
8) follow the instructions and remember to set "install OpenSSH" (???'s still going to be removed in the end when it reaches 1.1.3)
9) with the MS-DOS thing running, 1.1.2's jailbreak process is running..
10) once the jailbreak is completed, reboot the iPod. After the iPod is rebooted, click on "OK" on the MS-DOS pop-up window to show that the jailbreaking process is complete. This will initiate another reboot for the iPod.
11) with ipodtouchmaster's source added, use and search for the 1.1.3 jailbreak update. This will download the 160mbs update with the January firmware update including of the iPhone's applications.
12) install BossTool and rearrange fonts for bigger internal memory space.
13) think happy thoughts, be super optimistic, and manually restore all of your files back into the iPod. :)..


Someone remind me to search for the 1.1.4 *.rpsw file online or something like that when I get home after the Starbucks thing later..

I have never posted a blog entry through my iPod, so this is to show how bored I am at the moment. GAH.

I hate Tuesdays or this semester. It is extremely tiring just to wait for 4 whole hours for one bloody 2 hour class. Ugh.

Anyways, I've RE-registered for my Taxation (!!!!!!!) and dropped my Commercial Law for this semester. It's about time too. I've got a thing against law subjects. Somehow, I seem extremely prone in failing law subjects. Haha.

PS. Amy! I can't believe you left me in college! :( .. Now what the he'll am I going to do for 3 hours in college?! Thank goodness there are down-to-earth people.. Like Karen for instance!!!!! Bwahahaahahahaha [/boredom]
