What they will think of us

Image
What if people in the very distant future find our photos one day? What would they think about our time?

A make-believe situation:


Circa 90s suits with non-solar powered boat.

Chatting in old restaurants in those days.


Masked men from secret organizations post-samurai period.


Caroling during Christmas by humans. Pre-robotic era.


Old scientists.


Some spying club in school post-WW2


Smuggling on the beach. Post-mahathir era.


Jungle resistance squad. Communist period.


Drumset. Pre-synthetic music period.


Some friends gathering. Circa Abdullah administration era.


People not seen before. Unknown period.


Some mad scientist conference. Pre-genetic mutation experiments era.

Get Your iTunes Account in Malaysia

Image
Yup! I finally found a way to get an iTunes store account from Malaysia, thanks to Makeuseof.com. As some of you know, due to Paypal issues Malaysia is one of those countries who have no access to iTunes Store.

Q: Why would you need a store account when you don't buy music and this is Malaysia where we have ah beng's selling music at dirt cheap prices?

A: Because you can get album arts using the iTunes software. This might not be a big issue for most of you, but album art is something that completes the music experience for me so it's quite important. iTunes album covers are of quite good quality - makes CoverFlow look cool and not rubbish. Besides that, iTunes offer free music, videos and movies to download monthly. That's the clincher for us Malaysians right?

To begin, go to TuneCore. Follow the instructions on-screen.

Go to the iTunes store website and click on "Redeem" at the "Quick Links" section

The Dark Knight

The Dark Knight is DC Comic's perfect answer to Marvel's crazily successful Ironman. I think what my housemate said is really true. This movie redefined the genre of superhero flicks.

Stop. Looking. At. My. Abs.

We all know how a superhero flick would be like:
There must be damn 'cun' technology, gadgets involved. From kick-ass suits in Ironman, transforming cars in Transformers, lightning fast aircrafts in X-men, to crazy genetic experiments in Hulk, these movies never fails to offer the viewer a glimpse into the not-so-distant future or translating fanboys imaginations into reality (Had tears of joy when I first saw Optimus Prime).There must be physics-defying superpowerthat scares them baddies out of their skin.The storyline will be as follows: The origin of the superhero will be explained. If it's a sequel, then it would be how the superhero spent his time whooping asses between both movies with a general feel-good mood. Then something must go wrong that enables t…

Teachers

maybelah the sun dam hot and you make your form 1 students take class pictures. see what happens..like dying tauge

Teachers play a big role in molding my school experience and life philosophy (such as picking my nose with my left hand only. No, I joke). I was just thinking the other day about which of them have bigger influence in my life. Hence this post.

Primary School
Puan Saudahwas my Primary 1 class teacher. Take note that I was only 6 when I entered the realm of Malaysian multi-cultural school. Ok lah, I wasn't used to seeing so many Malay and Indian kids around, satisfied? Puan Saudah formed my first stereotype of primary school teachers - gentle, firm, tudung, teaches BM and all.. Influence level: 7/10

Cikgu Yusof was my Physical Education teacher in Standard 1. He was very very funny and I enjoyed PE immensely. However, Standard 4 onwards, he changed his style after becoming the disciplinary teacher. He and his rotan... who would forget that? Influence level: 4/10
