Tremors

Felt another tremor last saturday. An earthquake in Sumatra measuring 6.9 on the Richter scale. This is the 2nd time in 2 months I felt the tremors at my apartment. I think I live directly in line with the quake wave. But luckily we did not evacuate, I dont think anybody realized it since it happened in the afternoon and everyone was busy with their work and all. But the previous one (8.7) 2 months ago was around midnight and everyone ran down of the building. Somehow after the DEC 26 Quake, I feel like I'm living in Japan, where they feel tremors everyday. Another point is that I never felt the DEC 26 quake tremor. Could be because it happened deep underground and the later two happened near to the shore/ land.

*By the way Tremors is a tv series based on the cult classic Tremors Movie about a giant worm.

Ultra Laziness Virus Reported

Ok, I was supposed to finish about 40 pages of report (chapter 3 and 4 of my thesis) by monday, which did not happen. Everytime I sit infront of the PC I feel week. I just cant move the fingers. Nothing comes out of the brain. Its either I'm facing information overload (referring to too many publications) or Im just damn lazy.

And then, was supposed to build 3 websites. One for CosmicCode (partly done by the host;Todd) another for Ghost Particle (my own) and another for Swastikas Digital (the AV company I freelance at, this would also be the first ever matrimonial website in Malaysia, hopefully). All this did not happen either.

Something is seriously wrong with me, and I think I need some kind of revelation, a voice from the sky maybe? Muruga! I have exactly 5 weeks to submit my thesis and have about 50% left to be finished.

Monday Surprise

My buddy and mentor Fred mailed me yesterday to inform that the Ghost Particle Music Project composed its first song (December Fireflies) and will be played on two radio stations in Pittsburgh, USA, and in southern Portugal. Thanks to Jeff (the singer) and Davis (the drummer) (of Mispel Bellyful) and Fred (of Daymoon) for the composition. And thank you to myelf for the great lyrics (hehehehe). The original poem is here. This is the song:

December fireflies (the song)

Sometimes, somewhere,
I think there will be fireflies flying,
-there will be fireflies flying
Shining their enigmatic light,
Illuminating the field,
and your grave.

{ music }

Sometimes, now, here,
I wonder weather fireflies are real,
Weather they shine in joy or pain,
Weather they resemble our feelings,
Or maybe they are the dead souls of you
and in time, me.

{ chorus }
{ music }

Sometimes, far then,
A long time ago beside the river,
The clear water reflected a dream,
One vision that could come true someday,
Then, was the time we were young,
and full of dreams.

{ chorus }
{ music }

chorus:
December Fireflies,
There's one less star in the sky,
another painful memory,
i remember you and me,
together on this cold december night


* Happy I am feeling. The mini album will have about 4 songs. Ill post a post when all the songs are done. December Fireflies will be available as a single soon (a small PayPal donation are welcome for those who wants to download to support the Ghost Particle Project and recording)

Tuesday and Decisions
I had this feeling that I have to go home, maybe this weekend or next week. Thing around here are not going too well, need to 'rebuild' myself, go home and have some good rest and come back in a week or two. I hate the city, the pollution, the noise, the people (yes!) and the climate.
What I can find 20 minutes from my hometown (my home) (and I would never find in the city):

Field Of Dreams

Paddy Fields

Glory Days

Tanjung Dawai Beach

Get all my photos in my webshot gallery.

*I might not blog for a week or so, depending on wether I go home or not. Technology is driving me sick, but hopefully I can cure this before its too late!

*Have a great week guys and girls.

Nice to see such long posts. I hope its not advance posting for the the coming days.

Wow - so you have an album against your name - sounds cool.

The photographs were awesome.....

Hey dont hate the people. If you do, it just indicates that you havent known them well. Try to understand them and you will definitely fall in love with them.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
