“I’d like to wear a rainbow every day, and tell the world that everything is o.k. But I’ll try to carry off a little darkness on my back. Until things are brighter, I’m the Man in Black.”

“If you are a troublemaker…it’s our job to politically destroy you. Put it this way. As long as JB Jeyaretnam stands for what he stands for – a thoroughly destructive force – we will knock him. Everybody knows that in my bag I have a hatchet, and a very sharp one. You take me on, I take my hatchet, we meet in the cul-de-sac.”
– Lee Kuan Yew, The Man And His Ideas, 1997

I took your advice and the requisite pills
And forbidden pies from a white windowsill
Did I tell you “don’t come home”?
Why was your mouth not beginning to foam?
Swallowing caveats, Baphomet’s breath and migraines

Pardon the lack of updates . Been extremely occupied .

Had a great weekend i say.Great time at Jason Mraz show.
Glad to see mirah and her sister enjoying themselves . We also helped out someone to give out flyers on vegetarianism before the show lol

Downside was. getting out from the gardens by the bay. had one of the worst exit ever. took us almost an hr just to get out from the show to the near by train station. i believed due to the pathway and the bridge is unable to cope the number of ppl crossing it. it was swaying when we were on it.And it looked theres only one exit out of the place.  someone in the crowd joke that we were like from a zombie apocalypse cause of our movement out of the darn place and the silly looking structure that reminds me of Umbrella Cooperation from resident evil 😛

On another positive is great that Jason gives a shout out for tomorrow PinkDot 2012 😀

The vibe for this year pinkdot2012 was wonderful .Glad to be part of 15,000 people coming together to support the freedom to love ,regardless of sexual orientation


Before PinkDot , Ami and I met with our friend from Spain ,  Isra ,who is here studying Feng Zhu’s course .We had a good time chatting and sketching the afternoon away.

 Covers of NIN/Johhny Cash and Nirvana i did over past few weeks ago

i just have to post this up cause it cracks me up

Got inspired by a photograph taken by Mike

2hrs paint in photoshop

Wohoo i’m 30 this year ,on a contrary of popular culture of losing one youth,
i never ever want to be where i was many years ago, cause it was harmful , trying and difficult situation to live in . In fact i’m looking forward for the years to come ,the ppl/cultures i will meet/learn, self education and this life is worth living very finite time we have here . No , i’m not in a state of denial . Not too long i only started living, and damn well i’m not gonna waste any moment of it .

Had dinner with friends , gah the onion rings are awesome, but a tad too pricey for me  to indulge frequently .

hehe  I know im a jackass, thankful but im an annoying jackass 🙂

Clean up my guitar setup and the cluster around it, took out the old BOSS pedal board and tidy up the wires . Introducing the telecaster at the back there.Got it second hand  from a friend  and a slight superficial chip but I’m really digging the single coil twang- ly sound  ,goes  really well with the 15watt tube amp .”pops” out well during recording .

Recorded this tune with the telecaster and taranado
Downloadable ,lyrics and link to the track

A song i wrote when someone close to us pass away

Hope everyone had a great long weekend
