blogger beta does wonders

If you have a blog hosted on, make sure you run over right now and activate the Blogger Beta service. It's so easy and stable to use. Even someone like me, who is artistically deficit can come up with some sort of template like this. Just click a few buttons here and there and Blogger Beta does it all.

It even has NewsFeed function(check the bottom of the sidebar), although I had to settle with Reuters' News because I couldn't find the RSS link for BBC News. (Psst.. for the record, I DON'T LIKE REUTERS)

"We shall now return to your scheduled programming."

the greatest magic trick of all time

"For a few brief minutes, I strive to pull off my greatest trick of all: to make them forget they are ill."

- Daniel Sokol

I just read an article on BBC(link: here) about a guy who does magic in hospital and he calls himself a Medical Ethicist. I find the article that he wrote very interesting because it spoke to me in a pretty deep way.

It's no secret that I do magic. A lot. And I always try my best to offer to do a bit of tricks here and there, at children shows, etc.. etc... but I never seem to really put my thought into why I want to spend my time doing these things. Reading that article that I mentioned above sort-of opened up 'something' in my heart. I can't really put a finger to it but as I think about that little moment of joy that I can put into someone's life, it makes all the effort worth it.

So, I urge all of you, YF-ers(if you're reading this at all), who are involved with the Christmas Outreach Program to think carefully about what you will be doing for the kids this coming 17th as well as Christmas.

that school of thought

I remember this thing that I said last year when I had to skip DNA '05 (Petronas...! *waves fist*) but went for ESP4, in the end:

It doesn't matter what camp you go to if your intention is to learn from what God wants to teach because camps are just a premise for a person to learn. So, even if I missed DNA '05, God used ESP 4 to teach me new things. In fact, even if I didn't go for ANY camps, I will still learn what God WANTS me to learn because if He wants me to learn, He's going to teach that to me any how.

In short, that's pretty much what came up to me last year and I thought, "Since I only get to go for 1 camp this year(2005), I hope next year(2006) won't be worse."

Yeah... right. Me and my big... uh... thinking inner monologue. *cross arms*

This is my routine for the 17th December show. It's a short one. 15 minutes, maybe?

1. Is this yours?
2. 3 ropes become 1
3. My favourite card trick
4. Burger King
5. Escaping shackles

Yes...yes... I'm late by 28 minutes but hey, I was busy! Reaaally!

Thursday, December 07, 2006


Tune in tomorrow into this blog as I reveal the routines which I will be performing for YA's Christmas Outreach Program.

Well, not "reveal" as in showing you how it's done but "reveal" as in you know, let you know what I'm doing.

No, this is not a marketing ploy to get more people into this blog. No, really, no!

Just tune in tomorrow, dang-it!

Notice how I didn't mention what time? So that you will keep refreshing this page *wink*

humbled 24/7

For the pass 72 hours, I've done almost a million(overly exaggerated, of course!) insanely stupid things(not-so-overly exaggerated, though...) and I'm tearing my hair over it constantly. So, what does that mean? Well... that means, I'm reminded daily that I'm a HUMAN and I make mistakes; although sometimes it may seem as if I make more than an average human being. Still, God, I know You are there. You can't hide. Even if You could(I'm sure You can), why would You do that? No.. don't say, "Why not?"... :-/

Plus, that ever growing list of TO-DO things are growing(magic show, I'm looking at you), which means more time will be spent at home doing things that I should be doing AWAY from the computer.

I did a major hardware overhaul of my PC though. It will probably last me another 2-3 years and that would be enough before I go off on my studies somewhere. My new rig, dubbed The RIGGED DOOM:

AMD Athlon 64 3000+
Asus M2V AM2 Motherboard
1GB Kingston PC5300 667mhz DDR2 SDRAM
256MB Asus EN7300GE with TurboCache (which bumps the video memory to 512MB)
Cooler Master Centurion 5 Case with 380W PSU
40GB Maxtor HDD
Creative SoundBlaster Live! Value

It' But too bad wireless internet refuse to work on the machine for some reason and I need to call up Chipsoft to help me out on this.

derren brown

This man makes things look like real magic. But actually, it isn't. It can all be done with cold reading, hypnosis and/or NLP.

DISCLAIMER: Some of the videos may be a bit mentally disturbing. Nope, no gore or sex or any sort of things like that. It just makes your brain go 'hoo-hoo' for a bit.

Derren Brown put a guy who's playing a zombie video game into a trance and then literally put him on a 'film set' as if what he was playing is happening in real life:

Do you REALLY want that as a gift? Think again.

How some people get scammed easily:

There are a lot more but these three stuck out the most, for me.

Think about this strange metaphor that I thought of to myself one day:

I am Canada.
Everyone around me is United States of America.

Canada =! America

MPPPU Annual Dinner 2006!

The dinner this year was a success, I would say. Heck, even the principal thinks so too, which is great, because MPPPU would always catch flak from the school about the dinner over the students' dressing/performances. The board did a great job and here are some pics taken by the camera man of the night, Woon Cherk:

staffroom politics

I absolutely marvel at staffroom politics. To be honest, I'm very disappointed that educators whom the students should look up to are fighting amongst themselves over petty things and bringing their little fights/misunderstandings/arguments/back-stabbing/brain-stabbing/eyeball-gouging to the students.

It just HAVE to be today. A day where many things didn't go as well as I would like them to.

Anyway, Teacher X came and asked me how I invite teachers for the MPPPU Annual Dinner(oh, pics will be up soon!). I thought I was gonna get a lecture on why did I forget to invite her(she wasn't on our invitation list because we're inviting only the senior teachers for each subjects); but boy, was I dead wrong. She came and asked me why did Teacher Y go. Now, Teacher X and Teacher Y both have a long standing feud over some sort of misunderstanding or whatever for a long time already and half the school already know about it. Anyway, I explained to her that Teacher Y paid the full amount of ticket to be there with the students(only invited teachers get it for free). So, somehow she got jealous and she left me with this line, "Since you said you're only inviting senior teachers, then why is Teacher Y there?" and then walked off.

Goes without saying that I was fuming for a while.

Anyway, that's between them and I shouldn't take part in their melee.

stepping into new territory

Call me nuts, alright.

With already enough things on my hand, I've just added a new world of responsiblities unto the current load. I hope that with this new responsiblity, I will be able to impact people's lives. Yes, I will definitely do my best and I have some exciting things running through my mind already.

I can't wait.

Thank God for 209-63 though!

sorting my life

Argh crap. Form 6 IS tough. I've been trying to tell myself that Form 6 is not that difficult. It's not beyond me. As long as I clock in the hours to do my work, I will be fine.

Dang, I was wrong.

Here's a review of how I'm doing at the moment for each subject:

1. Pengajian Am
God bless Mr. Morgan.

Mdm. Indra's a good teacher and she doesn't knock on the weaker students eventhough their command of the language is not strong. Instead, she will build their confidence up. In fact, she will do just the same for those with pretty good English. Thank God. *Bleep*, I'm sick and tired of people telling me that my English is terrible and it's gonna ruin my confidence. Here's a shout out to Mdm. Presanna too for the MUET tuitions. They're really helpful to me.

3. Mathematics T (Paper 1)
Miss Neo's my teacher and she is very the good. Haha... All of her students will know why this is funny. Hehehe... Any-the-way, I find all my Math classes interesting and I really enjoy them. I mean, all the toilet jokes aside(I get it almost everyday), the things that I study in her classes are very interesting and challenging. It's not really until the point that I get jammed 100% yet. Yes, I get brain lapse or whatever you call them when I do Math homework but they're not that tough until I don't know what's going on. If I put in a little bit more effort into it, I'm sure it's not going to be one subject that will be the death of me. Somehow or rather, I have a feeling that I might eat those words one day. We'll see...

4. Mathematics T (Paper 2)
Mdm. Woon's my teacher. No, having a teacher with the same surname as you doesn't necessarily mean that you will get away with anything in her class. It actually means, in short, endless torturing. Haha... It's not that bad. It's just that somehow you will find yourself to be the butt of all jokes. Well, she's the only one doing it, anyway. Honestly, I'm starting to get really confused with this subject. More like I feel more stupid everyday. I didn't have as much trouble as I expected for graphs and charts in Chapter 5 but once I step into Chapter 6, Probability, I feel like crying. I don't understand ANYTHING towards the later part of the chapter! This is really bad for me cause I've been pressured to hand in my work and there is no way I could hand them in because I really don't know the things there. It's not the teacher's fault. Mdm. Woon's an awesome teacher and she really knows her stuff. Somehow, those probability stuff are just 'above' me. Gargh.

5. Chemistry
Miss Foo's my teacher and honestly, she rocks. I don't understand why all the other classes think she is very strict and almost unapproachable but my class thinks she's one of the coolest teacher ever! She's really experienced in what she teaches(come on... she even taught my MOM science back in Convent!). The problem, again, is in the student. Well, me. I feel dungu. Her notes are complete and whenever I study Chemistry, I understand and know why things happen the way they do but when it comes to exam, CRAP. I couldn't understand the question! Not surprisingly, I failed my first Chemistry test. Woo.

6. Physics
I refuse to comment on Mr. Hamdan. The thought of his Physics classes are just repulsive. Anyway, Miss Lileen Chan has been giving my class extra classes out of her own free time. I'm really thankful for her because whatever little help that she gives really help us in our Physics. Unfortunately, people don't treasure and make full use of what she does. Many students from my class didn't attend the extra class because they feel tired and just don't feel like going. This is ridiculous. Here, we have a woman, who took out time from taking care of her sickly mother to impart knowledge to us and you ungrateful people don't want to go just because you're TIRED? I hate to be unreasonable and I'm sure some of the people who skips her classes have reasons good enough to justify them not going to her classes on Friday. Classes that she spent her time away from her sickly mother to teach us.

Anyway, enough of ranting. Here's a peek of my study area:

a good musician

A good musician... one who practices regularly, one who keeps his chops up whether there's a gig or not, one who never stops learning, one who is well prepared to gig at any given time, one who is able to work with other musicians, one who respects other musicians, one who is honest and true with himself, one who is humble, one who plays for a song and not have a song played for him, one who knows his roles in a band well, one who is responsible, one who loves music.

Yes, it's not easy to be a good musician but I want to be a good musician.

The Eden's Gotong-royong gig was awesome. Playing in front of hundreds of people is really a different experience and I really thank God for the opportunity. It's cool.


I went home and I couldn't move both my calves and my left arm's botched. So, I thought that was due to exhaustion and promptly went off to sleep and rest. Woke up the next morning feeling alright already and later at night, I tried to pick up the bass again and clean it a little. The moment I tried to play it, my left hand, which is the fretting hand felt as if it's gonna come off. As if a nerve's been pressed down and the muscle just cramped to oblivion. I had a bit of that feeling when I was playing on Sunday but I ignored it and continued playing. Still, it hurted so bad and after reading some articles online, it could be tendonitis caused by bad playing technique(which is very possible considering I didn't have any formal lessons) or lack of exercise(which isn't very possible cause I've been playing for 4 years and this is the first time I'm experiencing this kind of pain).

So, I went to see the doc and he said that it's probably a pulled muscle and hopefully nothing serious. Phew. He gave me some MEDS to take and I'm told to rest that arm of mine from playing for a while. C'mon... honestly, how many bassists do you know who take meds when they play?! Ridiculous. Haha..

Lukas Rossi - Creep

I was channel surfing on one of my rare "TV-luvin'-days" and I came across this Rockstar: Supernova show on Star World. I will usually skip through these kind of shows(Yi Wan can testify) but I decided to watch it anyway because I heard the bassist for the house band rocks and he played for James Blunt's album. So, I really wanna check him out. Through enough, it's that bassist BUT something else in that show really caught my attention.

I watched how these future 'rockstars' prepare themselves for each week's elimination/competition and this guy, Lukas Rossi chosed the song 'Creep'. The show showed how he practices this song and he keeps going out of tune and screetch all the way. And of course, he was swearing and cursing all the way(hey, it's a show about ROCK N' ROLL, after all).

Then came the competition day, he looked so tense/quiet. Below is a video of his performance:


I really hope he will win this competition and even if he doesn't I will want to check out his future musical endeavours. Boy.

I saw this Ashdown Five Fifteen bass amplifier priced around RM980 at Lemon's Musical Store the other day. It looks like this:

Image Hosted by

I tried it out and boy, I love that sound! One cool part about it is that it's 100watt and that's about 70w more than I have right now with my Samick SA15.

I would totally get this amp if I have the dough and I could sell off this practice amp of mine. Alright, guys... That's it. I'm selling this Samick of mine for RM300(price negotiable) since I got it for RM450(new) and it was never played outside and only used at home as a practice amp. I have for about 2-3 years and NEVER once have I had any problem with it; tonally. It's not dinged as far as I know and being made in Korea really helps to ensure that it's built sturdily.

Anybody interested in my Samick? Do contact me. :)

"I totally dig Jesus... but it's his fan club that I hate"
"You people are always together with yourselves only and talk about Christian things"
"You all never mix around with us at all"

Hmm... I really don't know what to say in reply to non-Christians(my school mates, especially) when they talk to me about this.

Next year will be my last year in school. I really don't want to mess things up and give peple a skewed view of Christianity. I will have to try my best and do the right thing.

Yes, the right thing in God's eyes.

And oh, I won't be going for W@P this year because of ELS' Farewell Dinner. Cheng Yee and Daniel too.

Sunday, July 30, 2006


Went for MPPPU's Badminton Competition yesterday and I think we(my friend and I) did pretty okay considering we won the first game against the first team and then lost to Isaac's team in the second round. I must say that it's an awesome experience and watching some of these people play is really inspiring. Hmm... guess I still have a long way to go.

Besides that, the Eden's Gotong-Royong band(consists of Cheng Yee, Isaac, Jaeson, Ryan and I) had a little meeting over breakfast just now in the morning. We have decided on 4 songs. Not sure if I'm suppose to tell the whole world yet but umm... yeah.. you can find clues to the song on my blog. :)

busy busy busy

Probably from now on till the end of my Form 6 I will be a very busy chap. First of all, I'm part of the English Language Society(ELS) Board of Directors and in that club itself I have to plan for the Farewell Dinner 05/06, newspaper distribution as well as the Talent Time. Yes, in that order. During all that I also have to prepare for my coming 1st monthly test, which will be held from the 9th till 11th of August(in about 2 weeks time).

That's just school.

There's also the coming Eden's Gotong-Royong Campaign band-thing. We need to rehearse for the band soon cause the event would be pretty huge and about 1000 people will be there to gather at the Jubli Intan Hall on the 20th of August.

All of that PLUS all the studies that I will have to catch up.

what makes you think you're right?

Like the title suggest, what makes you think your judgement is right? Many times I've seen people(heck, even in the youth group) getting labeled as unfaithful Christian or not walking right just because their involvement in the youth is lacking hence, the lack of 'attention' or 'priviledges' from others in the group. I think this is a worrying trend because who gives you the right to label one person as a 'good' Christian or a 'bad' or even 'back-sliding' Christian? People always assume that a person is walking right with God because he/she is involved greatly in the youth ministry and another person isn't walking as right as the other just because he/she ISN'T playing a big part in the group.

Well, this just seems wrong. Why?

Always remember this verse from the Bible: "In the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

Yes, I'm guilty of passing on judgement on others and one day unless I repent, the very same way I judged others, God will judge me with my own ridiculous measure. I have learned a great lesson about it during the past year or so and I've come to realise how unfair things can be at times for people, who have been misunderstood.

Because of that, they could feel neglected and not belonged. They may very well be people who are working hard on THEIR own ministry in school or at home but because of all that misunderstanding and lack of fair treatment, they may even falter. They will seem so small in everyone's eyes.

And because they seem so tiny, and unimportant just because they don't play much role in your GREAT plan, they will always be the last to recieve any kind treatment that's been given to others, who seem so openly 'serving' in the group.

Remember, "Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me." Mathew 25-40.

Boss ODB-3

I went to JB's Tebrau City on Friday with my family. Everytime I step into the mall, I will definitely go to Masai Yamaha Music Shop cause they have a bunch of music stuff(a lot more compared to the tiny Lemon Musical Store here in Kluang) and also that's where I bought my 2nd bass the Ibanez GSR200. I went there and I gave the Boss OverDrive Bass(ODB-3) Pedal a good 10-15 mins demo.

In short: I LOVE it.

I really wish I could buy that someday. It sounds super cool and as far as my ears allow me discern out of that bunch of fuzzy, overdriven tone, there are 3 distinct type of sound that I can make without many tweaks and turns. I tried to play Chili Pepper's 'Around the World' with it and it sounds so awesome(although I failed miserably cause I couldnt remember how to play it due to the amount of excitement in fooling around with the pedal). If any of you have an extra RM320 lying around, do consider buying that for me and I will be eternally grateful to all of you. ;)

Here's a picture of it so that I can look at it everyday and drool:

Strange, how people often give up trying after failing to succeed. I suppose they focus a little too much on difficulty of the task instead of putting in even more effort in order to succeed. Maybe it's just me with my tons of overconfidence(which is proven in my test, which I will blog about sometime in the future). Or it could also be due to the lack of inspiration. I really don't know.

Well, of course, I give up all the time too and I really want to be able to stand strong in the face of adversities and improve myself even more in this area of my life.

It is also very strange that how things can affect or even inspire someone else by a huge margin. Take the guy on top as an example. His name is Bill Clements and he is a one handed bassist. You can check out one of his many performance videos on I've always thought to myself that with two hands and 10 fingers, I can do many amazing things on the bass(IF I'm good laa...) and it will be impossible for me to play without few of my fingers. Then I stumbled upon this video of Bill Clements playing and my jaw dropped. Well, I'm sure people would easily rate either Jaco Pastorius or Victor Wooten's playing wayyy above Mr. Clement's but with 5 fingers and a hand, that is amazing. There are lots to learn from this guy, my friends!

This man is amazing and you can definitely see the kind of effort that he has put in to play the bass. I'm sure he felt like giving up for a MILLION TIMES at least but he didn't. This guy definitely inspired me to take my playing up till the next level.

If you're a bassist and you're reading this, go pick up your instrument and play. For God.

high in the head

I'm feeling so high now. That adrenaline rush in my head is still there although the message was 5 hours ago. Still feeling very very light-headed too.

It was a very different experience to be given the honour and opportunity to share God's Word in front of people. Although it was in front of mainly Christians but I really thank God for this experience. Not sure if there would be more opportunities like this in the future but if there is... I would definitely take it up again.

It's not that I want to show my face more often in YF or get light-headed again and again but it's because I notice that through this opportunity and this time of sharing, I was able to bring my spiritual life to a totally new level. It's like a breakthrough in my life. I recorded the session on my phone and I'm gonna check it out later. It isn't so much about me teaching when I speak in front. It's more like I'm learning much myself too. I'm still learning how to trust God even more and I believe that when I do trust God with everything, for e.g. the message, God's gonna do something in my life. A................................MEN!

Much thanks to all the folks in the counsellor's group for helping me during 'preparation time' in YF, Uncle Ven for teaching in Class 3, Jit Pang and Yoshua on inspiring me and teaching me on how to speak as well as everyone else who prayed for me.

Well, with that over already, it's time to get back to planet Earth and plan my next course of action in life. I'm so tired now but I'm still gonna praise God.

sea monkeys!

Yup, I finally got myself into a writing mood and this time, I'm gonna talk a bit about those little buggers(also known as sea monkeys). Okay, it's been roughly a month or two now since I dumped them into their little torture tanks and have my siblings take care of them. I took a bunch of pictures of them about 3 weeks ago and I guess I should just post them now for you all to see how creepy they really are:

Wow... lot's of things have been happening lately.

Parent's Day would be on the 17th of June 2006 and yours sincerely would have to share on a topic that have yet to be discussed with the event coordinators(Pek Ying and Mei Qi). That's currently on top of my 'To-Do' list at the moment. Hmmpf... 2 weeks to prepare a 20-minute long sharing... Yikes. My first time too. *scratches head*

Anyway, besides that, there's also the whole badminton thingamajig. Every Sunday, a bunch of us, youths, would go to the Convent school here and play games/exercise/have fun. The youths could play anything; from football to captain ball to basketball to badminton. There aint many issues with all the other games at the moment besides badminton. Apparently, one has to pay to use the school's badminton court. "Fair play", I hear you say. You're right. It is only right to pay to use another person's property but I remember that back in the days, we were told that as long as we have Convent girls playing with us, we don't have to book the court. We've got tons of them playing. And so, we thought we don't have to book the court. Even the security guard said so. We continued like that for months, if I remember correctly. 2 weeks ago, while the youths were having fun playing badminton, 2 sisters(or nuns) came in their green Nun-mobile and blasted everyone present at the court. I wasn't there when they came because I was walking Yin Ying home because of something I can't remember. Which is good. If I was there, I might have clobbered them. Anyway, the moment they stepped in, they blasted everyone by accusing that we didn't pay to play on the court. Which is bull, because I did book the court for a whole month and many of the youths know that. By then I was at the court already. They claimed that they will NEVER loan the courts for a whole month... well, until I showed them the receipt, that is. Pity the others too. Just because we didn't book all the courts for the whole month(eh... money don't grow on trees), many of the youths didn't know that. So, they played anyway and got scolded by the Nuns of love and happiness. Ah well. It was a sad day. Daniel, his dad and I had to carry on to play because we did book the court for the month. But Daniel's dad didn't quite realise the awkwardness of the situation and insisted that we continue playing. It wasn't fun after that. Really.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAanyway, we've come to a conclusion of collecting as much money as we can from the people who wanna play badminton and book as many courts as we can for the month. I'm collecting RM5 per head for those who wanna play but apparently RM5 is really not enough. It is, in fact, too little. I had to use my own money to pay for the rest. Seems like the most we can book are 2 courts. I can't always pay for everyone but heck, who would want to? Still, I want to thank everyone who contributed to the "Badminton Love Fund".

There's also the upcoming jam with Mervin to warm him up a bit on Monday, I think. Then there's also the training session for vocalists and worship leaders on Thursday night as well as a small recording session with all the song writers who wish to have their songs recorded and archived on Friday afternoon. On the same day itself, we will be having training session with drummers, I think. On Saturday morning, Ryan and Jaeson will be conducting piano and PA training sessions, respectively. All that, happening in the church.

What can I say? It's gonna be a full holiday for me. Nevertheless, I think it's gonna be a fun one.

can you really blame me?

You know... sometimes people tell me that I'm being too insensitive at times and my words are crude, mean, sharper than a ninja's sword, fatter than lard as well as all sort of other unpleasant things. Especially being too frank at times.

Consider this, everytime I do something that I know I am not excellent at, people would come and knock me down. I HATED it. Everytime. I don't get it. Why must people always do that to me? So what if I'm not so good at something? Must you really come and embarass me in front of everyone? Is it necessary? IS IT???

Maybe you do that to keep my head level in check and prevent it from bloating up but it's definitely not the right way. It's not like I made any mistake. It's really not necessary. So, stop it! If you don't want to, fine. You are just gonna keep on pushing me right till the edge and then I will snap. If I do snap, I will in turn become the bad guy who couldnt control himself. The evil little man that everyone will despise.

So, whatever it is, I'm still in a lose-lose situation. Whatever my course of action is or will be, I will still lose. Guess I can't do anything about it. If you're reading this, which I am 100% sure you will never, my words to you is this:

Sod off and leave me alone.

Guess I really have to do that once in a while to keep my psycho level in check. After all that, can you really blame me?


I'm not back from the Family Camp and I think it was a lot fun. I got to check out lots of a cool nature stuff like how awesome the beach can be as well as the chance to hang out at a very beautiful island about 10-15 minutes off the mainland. I will try to get pictures from Paulus and put them up here.

Anyway, now that I'm back as well as the lads of Kitchen Utensils, we're gonna have a recording session soon; probably this Friday.

Wish us luck.

Kitchen Utensil's demo songs

Alright, here are the promised songs that the band did so far. I'm afraid this is the most I can put up since the band didn't want me to put up the full songs. Anyway, here's a small(literally) insight of how we sound like and the kind of songs that we write.

Hope you'll enjoy them and there will be more in the future from the pots and pans of Kitchen Utensils! :)
