I don't know what to write

I remember there was this time when I could just start to blog about anything anytime.

Right now, I'm stuck -_-"

Time to sleep anyways. I blame work for the lack of inspiration.

Facebook Part II

After two weeks of insane facebook-ing i.e. throwing sheep, buying drinks, writing on walls, sending pandas to seduce other people; I think its fair enough to say I've had my fair share of it.

*throws sheep*

Anyways, been working for slightly more than a month now; and it's been a pretty good learning experience. The first thing I found out that while whatever I learned in uni is very much directly applicable to whatever I've been doing, it's also fair to say that its not sufficient enough, which also means A LOT OF PAIN AND SUFFERING when you're sitting down there trying to figure out what other more experienced and qualified people have done.

So far most people have asked me what do I actually do for a job, so instead of the very general but not so true answer of "math", I shall take the time to elaborate a little bit more.

My job - working with Bank Negara Malaysia - basically revolves around regulatory and supervisory work, specifically towards the insurance industry in Malaysia. In practical terms this means reading a lot of reports and checking other ppl's work, and giving them a good spanking if they don't do it properly (note: the term spanking is intended to be metaphorical, so for those of you who were thinking otherwise, errrrr....we'll just leave it at there). It's basically a 9-5 deskjob (well actually 830 to 530), so I'm pretty cool with that.

It also suddenly dawned on me that I will have to be studying (again!!! *@#4%@%*) pretty soon, when the actuarial exams begin. Sigh. Moral of the story to all kids out there: Do some research before you decide on what you want to study. Or what you don't want.

To compound matters, the inevitable arrival of the PS2 has already made the whole studying-while-you-work-which-we-know-is-impossible even more ridiculous. But hey, somebody needs to save the world, right?


On more trivial matters, it's been an incredible start for Arsenal fans! Whoooooo! But I hardly have the chance to catch the matches nowadays (sigh). Condolences to all Chelsea fans on the loss of Jose Mourinho. He's a great coach no doubt.

Things in church have begun to pick up, rather, they've always been up, just that I've been picked in to the flow a bit more. So here's to a event filled life. *drinks redbull*

It's been so long since I last blogged properly it feels like I'm having writer's/blogger's block. Ughh.

Time to wake Ding up and go pay the bills.

Due to intense diplomatic pressure (its always easier when you blame people), I've finally succumbed to Facebook.

Night Out @ AF Practice Session

So I was out last night at Altered Frequency's band practice session, being the kepo that I am. It was good fun to meet up with bass master guru DG again, and even more fun to gawk at Kysern's amazing guitar tone, lines, chops, licks err... in short... guitar playing.


I. Need. To. Practice. More. So hooray for band practice tonight.

I was asking Kysern how does he does he find the time to practice with work and all that.
" social life loh."

So it's goodbye social life. So much for the rock star glamour. This whole actuary playing guitar thing isn't really working out.

We have a spanking new PS2 in the house with 10 different games and I haven't even touched it yet. Lunacy I tell you.
