Happy New Year! Really …

happynew2009

Unlike Wallace and Gromit who are all dressed up in style in-time for tonite’s countdown – I will be home avoiding traffic and crowds like good ol Hermit. How do you like that? Even clay characters have a more happening life than I do. Well, then again – for the record, staying home is by choice and not circumstance. I just don’t see the point of going out to a crowded spot surrounded by sweaty and smelly people. Its probably a sign of old age confirmed by a recent discovery at my regular gaming forum. Incidentally, I am the oldest chap playing Call Of Duty while my fellow gamers ranges between the age of 10 to 25. That’s not the worst part – the worst part is having my old ass kicked by these younger teens who should be studying instead of gaming! Youth – where hasth thou vanished to? As everyone starts sending Happy New Year text messages making money sucking Telcos even happier – I decided to opt for a more economical way to send my wishes to everyone here instead. Am not sure what 2009 holds – despite all the gloom and doom being reported in the news, I wish to end this year with the following quote: The darkest hour is just before dawn. So just make damn sure you have your bloody torchlight handy. May happiness, health and hope be abundant in your next 365 days to come. Happy New Year, everyone. Really ….

Holiday Hangover

grrrrr_bear

After 5 days off from work, am getting a little holiday hangover and finding it such a struggle to get back to work again tomorrow. Some of my colleagues are taking the entire week off as today and Thursday are public holidays. Me, I’ve used up all my off days and hence gotta go back to work unlike half of the city folks here. The only silver lining, less traffic. Everyone just gets so lazy in December.

Tim Burton’s 9

It’s coming out on the ninth day of the ninth month of the ninth year. Tim Burton is back together with Timur Bekmambetov, the guy who directed Night Watch and Wanted. With a cast full of stars like Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, and Crispin Glover – this looks promising. Being a Tim Burton film, expect a twisted tale with wicked creativity. Can hardly wait. Side note: Sackboy look alike alert.

Killzone 2: Official Boxart

This is the next game that I am waiting for. Killzone 2, a Playstation 3 exclusive title. But if you’re not into FPS (First Person Shooters), then this will not excite you a bit. Coming February 27, 2009 – hopefully this game will relight my fire for the Playstation 3. As of now, I am turning into a Xbox360 fanboy due to the lousy online experience on the Playstation Network especially for Call Of Duty 4 and Call Of Duty: World At War.

Christmas is a time when everybody wants his past forgotten and his present remembered. So, for your convenience as we’re just a couple of hours away from Christmas day, I will take online transfers or paypal. Merry Christmas.

CoDY – 5 1/2 Months Old

cody_211208

Was back visiting my parents as it was the Winter Solstice day which marks the first day of winter in the lunar calendar. The seasonal significance of the Winter Solstice is in the reversal of the gradually lengthening nights and shortening days. It’s also a day when Chinese will eat Tāngyuán made from glutinous rice flour. I didn’t get to eat Tāngyuán this year – but I had a very huggable and lovely fluffy fur ball which seems to be getting bigger and bigger everytime I see him. CoDY – my puppy. He is getting so heavy – but still adorable as ever.
