(That Thing I Do)

Thanksgiving

I am thankful that I am not as fat as I used to be, though that’s not to say I shouldn’t put down that donut. I am thankful that my job doesn’t suck. Yet. I am thankful that where I live food is good, cheap and plentiful. Or perhaps I shouldn’t be, because it’s making […]

I promise

I promise to come to work on time. I promise to drink responsibly. I promise to not spend heartbreaking amounts of money on photography. I promise to not be such a huge iPhone fanboy. I promise to call more often. I promise to treat you with more respect. I promise to exhibit more kindness towards the people around […]

Day 49/365: Going Down

I end my day at work every day when I step int into the lift. Down I go, out of the office. Away from everyday droning. Down I go. A reminder that I’m not really escaping from the routine rat race. Disposable income. Down.Energy levels. Down.Motivation. Down.Free time. Down.Fitness. Down.Mood. Down. Down.

Day 54/365: In The City

Some prefer chicken, some prefer beef. Some feel pleasure with extreme spiciness, some feel pain. That’s the beauty of being Malaysian. We don’t […]

How Not To Conduct A Food Review

Once upon a time, there was a man. One day this man went to a restaurant and ordered some food. He liked the food very much, and took pictures of it. He then went home, posted up the pictures on his website and wrote all sorts of wondrous things about it for people to read. […]

Baskin’ In Chocolate Glory

Growing up, there was one day I really looked forward to every year, and that is Christmas. I could take 364 days in a year, roll it into one, and it couldn’t even hold a candle to the awesomeness of that one magical day. It’s a day where I get showered with the things I […]

For Love Should Be Effortless

I remember the day the iPad 2 was released in Malaysia. I heard stories of throngs of people queuing up outside stores for hours, just to be among the first to own the hallowed gadget. My desire for the device had not been a very well-kept secret. As much as I lusted for that magical […]
