Is there a point in blogging?

You know, one thing I notice is as you live, you will like things and then not like them over a certain time period. I didn't think blogging was cool, but a few years ago I started blogging and found it interesting. It's like a diary, only everyone can see it! :D But then.. as time goes by.. you realise that.. the plain old simple handwritten diary (that you normally would only let yourself see) beats blogging.

What makes me say this? Well, it's simple really. Sure blogging is all about sharing your experiences with the world, if not about crapping. xD But, how much can you share with the world? Can you share every little bit of thought about a certain event or person or object just like that? As in, typing it all out here? No.

I believe an average internet user is aware of the threats that the internet has. Such as passwords and IDs thefts. And sure, I'm being pessimistic and all. But even if it's not for this, people can see what you type and sometimes you just don't want people to see it. RATHER, you wanna write it down somewhere, just to let it out of you.. And perhaps one day look back at it..

So, is there any point in blogging? I believe there is a point. Otherwise, it would've been designed in the first place. People have shared great experiences through blogging, and some make a living out of it. But to me, I no longer see a point in blogging.. Instead, what has been replaced is a simple typed diary that I keep with me. I call it an "e-diary". Haha.. Why don't I write out a diary instead? Simply because I have bad handwriting and I type faster than I write. lol..

And by doing so.. I have the freedom to write what I really feel like writing.. No restrictions. Of course, when you use harsh language and you look back at it in the future, you would feel bad. But that's okay. At least only you or close people know it, and not the whole world right? :)

Anyway. Enough with all this. Whether I not I put up any more posts here is another story. I will, though not actively, still look at some of my friends' blogs and check out on what they're up to. :)



PS: This is a song I wanna share. It starts of as a very quiet and simple tune, and slowly becomes happy. Towards the middle and end, it's at its climax - it's very lively and energetic! It makes you feel that all your problems are free (at least for me). :) The song, that has been my most favourite instrumental up till now, is:

When Everything Seems To Fall Apart

It's been so long since I could update my blog. I finally have the chance. Yay!

So, as of late and also for the past few weeks, I've been extremely busy with courseworks. This semester was the most hectic semester I have ever experienced, and I believe the next and last semester of my uni life will be far worse than now, but I'm ready for it. :)

A couple of updates for now. Starting with the one with least impact. I bought a new transformer last Sunday. It's TERRADIVE!! :DD OH goodness, you have no idea how long I have been waiting for him!! ^^ But, after two days, it BROKE!! WTHL right!? >.< So, I am planning to return it to the shop today before they don't let me (the receipt says I can return the product within 1 week or purchase). Hopefully they still have stock for Terradive, otherwise I'll just have to choose another transformer from the lot. haha.

Next update: Coursework submission. Lo and behold, Chemical Engineers in my uni will definitely know what I mean when I say "CEL". This module basically is about submitting a single lab report that is worth.. well, an entire module of marks. Yeah, that's crazy. However, I tried very hard to submit it on time, but I failed. And I lost my temper.. :S Honestly, I don't know why I chose to lose my temper, but the result was ugly enough.. Then after cooling down, I realised that it was a really good thing that I didn't submit the coursework because there were so many errors in it! WHOA! >.< So, I'll have the entire weekend to finalise the coursework properly, and also to relax a bit before I start studying. Haha. Good luck to everybody for studies! :)

Another update? Haha.. I finished the world-renowned games "Assassin's Creed" and "Assassin's Creed II", and I tell you they are AWESOME!! :DD The story is about assassin's fighting templars, but I will only reveal this much. Go play the game and I guarantee you it is awesome :P

Last update? Well, this is not exactly the biggest achievement per se, but I did lift up my spirits. Remember the girl I kept mentioning in my previous posts? We are beginning to talk more comfortably again. So, that has made me happy. :)

Cheers guys.

First of all, I'd like to say that my life has been pretty lifeless until now. Because of one particular person, and because of the decisions I made, my life has been revolving in a weird manner.. My friends don't have a good impression of her, yet I still am drawn towards her. But right now, for the better for me and her, we'll distance ourselves hopefully to become friends just like before.

But the point of this post is not about her. It's about everything else other than her. I had friends whom I could share this problem with. I had friends who brought me out of misery, and make me whole again. Without them, I would still be brooding over the girl, whom I don't even know is meant for me or not. Haha!!

Yes, that's right. You know who you are. :) Thank you for helping me get back on my feet. Thank you for the little things you've done, such as asking me out for meals or simply talking to me even though I don't reply that much. Thank you for being there! :D

Also, it's not just about friends, but also for my Graphics Team that I only begun to know. They're a great team of dedicated, talented, and active individuals! Their works of art amazed me! Thank you!! :D

Also, thank you for my family, especially my sisters. I only dared to tell two of my three sisters about the problem I had, and they helped me out too. Hahaha.. Thanks a lot! :D

Some of the songs that are on my playlist remind me of the girl. I still wish I could turn back time to the moment where we would chat just about anything.. Unlike now. But then again, if that hadn't happened, I wouldn't be here writing this post. :)

Most of all, thank you Lord for making all this happen. You were there among my friends and among everything that happened. The nights when I was really weary and the nights when I shed tears because of fear and sadness, I did feel your presence. I felt your presence as well when my friends forcefully dragged me out of depression. Hahaha... Thank you, and God Bless to you all~!! :D

Back to EPop?

Okay, you may see EPop as "Online Pop" or "Digitalised Pop".. Hahahaha. No no, it's my way of saying "English Pop". Lately I'm listening to more English pop songs, and also songs by Katy Perry, Taio Cruz, etc.

Maybe I'm growing out of Kpop.. But I still like them.. :)

Graphics Graphics Graphics~

It's amazing that I get to work with great graphic designers. Some are not as good as others, but their creativity and ideas are admirable! I feel happy to be a Head in Graphics, not only for the uni's 10th anniversary celebration but also for the Music Society in my final year of studies. :) But this is even more great because I get to work with such talented and dedicated people, whom the uni has yet to know :D

All I can say it: Thank you Lord for giving me this chance~~!! :)

And now.. Back to studies..

Back to Normal

Guess what. The past few days I have been "emo-ing" about my actions.. To the point where I had no mood to do anything at all. :(

Then.. last night, I chatted with a friend and realised that everything is back to normal. It's kind of weird because it's like there was totally no point in emo-ing because I didn't fully understand the situation.. (Again, I cannot share details of the incident here. Sorry. Try to understand it out of what I type xD)

Anyway, the sun right now is very bright, and the sky is very clear. Thank you, Lord. =)

Ever wondered why people just keep making the same mistakes in similar situations over and over again? Have you ever felt like knocking some sense into them, but somehow it never works? It's funny isn't it?

"I am such a numbskull." That's what I wanna say to myself today. Something happened but I cannot share it here. For the past few days, I thought there could've been a way to fix it.. But I guess it can no longer be helped.. Just like the past few days, I shall mutter these words to myself:

"I should not have said those words..."

Something Big Is Going to Happen

What is it, you ask? XD Before you can make sense of it all, let me bring you back 2 months into the past..

It was a fine afternoon. Birds chirping in the air, cars driving by slowly as if there's not a worry in the world. And there I was, with my mom at the steering wheel, driving to the nearby town from our house.

"Hey mom," I said, "I have the strangest feeling.."

My mom replied, "Really? What?"

"I don't know..," I said while tilting my head. It's a bad habit when I say "I don't know", you see. "I just have a feeling that something BIG is gonna happen in my final year!!"

My mom chuckled. "Nah, you're just excited to go back to uni. And it's your final year. Study hard ok?"

I just smiled and enjoyed the car ride...


Now back to the present, not only one big thing has happened, but a few! Here they are, as I recall them:


On the first day of uni, I woke up with a very very freaking terrible backache! Just bending my body a little felt like a few hammers hitting my spine all at once! >.< Moving about with such a condition was a very horrible experience.. I had to pull out from a Frisbee Competition and not take part in any sports for a good 2 to 3 weeks.

Apart from that, I had to go to classes and prepare materials for Big Event No. 2...


On the 2nd day of uni, the uni's Music Society gathered together to organize the biggest event in my uni's history! It's 10th Anniversary Celebration! And we had a fun fair to spring to life! Hooray huh? But the workload was intense!

I was assigned as the Head of Graphics for that project, and boy was it a daunting task! @@ I had no time to revise anything from class and I couldn't do much research for my academic projects.. But the good things that came out from it were that I really outperformed myself by making a humongous stage backdrop for the event, and had a team of very very surprisingly gifted and dedicated graphic designers! Thank God for letting me work with such a team!! =D

The event overall was a success and it was great to see our hard work bear fruit ^^.


Hohoho.. Lo and behold, the ultimate projects of my degree..!! I'm undergoing a lot of stress preparing materials for my big Final Year Project and Laboratory Session.. So far, there's not much going on.. And that's not cool.. Better hurry up!! >.<


As of now, I am thinking of submitting T-Shirt designs for a few clubs. The designs are in my head, and ready to be put on Photoshop. =) Only problem is.. I really can't find time to do this! D:

Just recently, I learned that the Nature Club's T-Shirts were ruined. The shirt manufacturers did not produce good T-Shirts and the printing was peeling off.. Talk about quality control there.. So, one of the committee members, who is also my classmate, asked me to submit my design since I told them I had one in mind. Well, that made me kinda happy that I could use my design, but I was more sad because the club's T-Shirts were ruined. =(

Anyhow, I had to come up with a new design for the Nature Club T-Shirt because my previous design was too complicated to work on. I have finished it, and I do wish to hear positive feedback from the committee. :) I didn't take too long on it, so I have sufficient time for my FYP.

In fact I'd like to put a Big Event No. 5, but I don't think it's appropriate to put it here. =P I guess that this year is gonna be a BIG year with more BIG events to come!!! Looking forward to it!! =D

God Vs. Science

I found this on a friend's blog, and it's very insightful. Please take some time and read this. =)

God Vs Science

'Let me explain the problem science has with religion.'

The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand.

'You're a Christian, aren't you, son?'

'Yes sir,' the student says.

'So you believe in God?'

'Absolutely. '

'Is God good?'

'Sure! God's good.'

'Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?'


'Are you good or evil?'

'The Bible says I'm evil.'

The professor grins knowingly. 'Aha! The Bible! He considers for a moment. 'Here's one for you. Let's say there's a sick person over here and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?'

'Yes sir, I would.'

'So you're good!'

'I wouldn't say that.'

'But why not say that? You'd help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn't.'

The student does not answer, so the professor continues. 'He doesn't, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Can you answer that one?'

The student remains silent. 'No, you can't, can you?', the professor says. He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax. 'Let's start again, young fella. Is God good?'

'Er..yes,' the student says..

'Is Satan good?'

The student doesn't hesitate on this one. 'No.'

'Then where does Satan come from?'

The student falters. 'From God'

'That's right. God made Satan, didn't he? Tell me, son. Is there evil in this world?'

'Yes, sir..'

'Evil's everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything, correct?'


'So who created evil?' The professor continued, 'If God created everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principle that our works define who we are, then God is evil.'

Again, the student has no answer. 'Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things, do they exist in this world?'

The student squirms on his feet. 'Yes.'

'So who created them?'

The student does not answer again, so the professor repeats his question. 'Who created them?' There is still no answer. Suddenly the lecturer breaks away to pace in front of the classroom. The class is mesmerized. 'Tell me,' he continues onto another student. 'Do you believe in Jesus Christ, son?'

The student's voice betrays him and cracks. 'Yes, professor, I do.'

The old man stops pacing. 'Science says you have five senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Have you ever seen Jesus?'

'No sir. I've never seen Him.'

'Then tell us if you've ever heard your Jesus?'

'No, sir, I have not..'

'Have you ever felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelt your Jesus? Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ, or God for that matter?'

'No, sir, I'm afraid I haven't.'

'Yet you still believe in him?'


'According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your God doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?'

'Nothing,' the student replies.. 'I only have my faith.'

'Yes, faith,' the professor repeats. 'And that is the problem science has with God. There is no evidence, only faith.'

The student stands quietly for a moment, before asking a question of His own. 'Professor, is there such thing as heat? '


'And is there such a thing as cold?'

'Yes, son, there's cold too.'

'No sir, there isn't.'

The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested. The room suddenly becomes very quiet. The student begins to explain.' You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, unlimited heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don't have anything called 'cold'. We can get down to 458 degrees below zero, which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the lowest -458 degrees. Everybody or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-458 F) is the total absence of heat.. You see, sir, cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat we can measure in thermal units because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.'

Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the classroom, sounding like a hammer.

'What about darkness, professor. Is there such a thing as darkness?'

'Yes,' the professor replies without hesitation. 'What is night if it isn't darkness?'

'You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light, but if you have no light constantly you have nothing and it's called darkness, isn't it? That's the meaning we use to define the word. In reality, darkness isn't. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?'

The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him. This will be a good semester. 'So what point are you making, young man?'

'Yes, professor. My point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to start with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed.'

The professor's face cannot hide his surprise this time. 'Flawed? Can you explain how?'

'You are working on the premise of duality,' the student explains. 'You argue that there is life and then there's death; a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought.' 'It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it.' 'Now tell me, professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?'

'If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man, yes, of course I do.'

'Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?'

The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he realizes where the argument is going. A very good semester, indeed.

'Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a preacher?'

The class is in uproar. The student remains silent until the commotion has subsided. 'To continue the point you were making earlier to the other student, let me give you an example of what I mean.' The student looks around the room. 'Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the professor's brain?' The class breaks out into laughter. 'Is there anyone here who has ever heard the professor's brain, felt the professor's brain, touched or smelt the professor's brain? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, with all due respect, sir.' 'So if science says you have no brain, how can we trust your lectures, sir?'

Now the room is silent. The professor just stares at the student, his face unreadable. Finally, after what seems an eternity, the old man answers. 'I Guess you'll have to take them on faith.'

'Now, you accept that there is faith, and, in fact, faith exists with life,' the student continues. 'Now, sir, is there such a thing as evil?' Now uncertain, the professor responds, 'Of course, there is. We see it every day. It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil.'

To this the student replied, 'Evil does not exist sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light.'

The professor sat down.

If you read it all the way through and had a smile on your face when you finished, mail to your friends and family with the title 'God vs. Science'

PS: the student was Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein wrote a book titled God vs. Science in 1921.

Mega Project Part 2

Hello bloggers. The big project I was working on has been completed and I am looking forward to seeing it for real. And nope, it's not a poster. It's a stage backdrop. So yeah, it's huge. Sorry for the confusion in my earlier post =P.

Apart from myself, I have a group of talented graphic designers under me for the 10th Anniversary Celebration preparations. I must say, they are all very very talented and have not failed to impress me with their work - banners for that day. Thank you, Graphics Team!! I love you all! XD

For safety reasons, I will not post any pics of the banners or backdrops. =P

Cheers everyone!

Mega Project

First week of uni has started, and boom! I have a packed timetable, or so it seems. Right now I have to find time to wisely choose an optional module for my 1st semester. That ain't so hard right?

Guess what? I've been assigned to complete a Mega Art Project. For the first time in my life, I am making a very humongous poster for an upcoming event in uni - 10th Anniversary Fun Fair. Yeah, you'd be thinking: Cool!! There's a fun fair! Well yes! There'll be lots of fun for the guests, but its' not that fun for the people preparing for the event, that includes me. >.>

I'm under a lot of stress just because of this mega project, but at the same time I am happy to take the challenge as I get to see myself surpass some of my limits in art. =D

I passed my driving test~!!! Woohoo~~~!!! =D

September 14, 2010


Driving - It is the ability to operate a vehicle to get a person to a certain destination. That's one amateurish way of putting it. It basically involves controlling of your accelerator, clutch, gear and brake when need be. Obviously even after learning all the basics, I haven't grasped the very basic of it all - Controlling of the pedals.

I try day after day to get used to the feel of the pedals, yet until today I have not been able to get it right. Either I hit the accelerator too hard or I release the clutch too much. Not to mention my usual clumsiness adds to the mess.

One thing is for certain though. The driving practical test is coming soon and I am really not prepared to pass the test. I am still going for it, and until then I will do my very best to get those basics right!

Back in the Flesh

Hey bloggers. Thought I would be gone for good huh? Since my blog was not accessible for some time. Haha.. Worry not, I'm starting my blog over again. =)

So, what have I been up to? A lot, and not much. Hehe ^^


This was the main focus of my summer this year. I underwent industrial training at a construction company. Weird or not, all I can say is it's God's work and He guided me towards that company. I've learned a lot. =) I won't miss the work there, but I'll miss the experiences I've had in that company. =D

A pic of me and my colleagues:


Yup. What's me without transformers.. XD I bought a few new TFs with my hard-earned allowance. Here are pics of the new TFs, and some pics of my Transformers Collection. =)


Yep. Finally I've decided to learn driving. I'm halfway done with the lessons and will be taking the exam this weekend. Wish me luck~!!


Well believe it or not, I actually am really interested in picking up this fine instrument again. =) Despite having completed Grade 8 Solo Piano, my fingers have stiffened over so many months. In addition, my sight reading had never improved at all. Hahahaha. But now with more interest than before, I'm confident I can use this skill for good in the future. =)

That's all for now. =D
