Er... not dead, if anyone's worried

Well, yeah...

If something pisses me off enough. Like this:

This is the kobold who works at the coffee shop downstairs (you know, the one that Zeus doesn't like too) - who makes it an artform to ignore customers who may or may not be dying of thirst. (Not to be mistaken for the guy who works there in the afternoon, who's so efficient, he's scary too.) The Kobold, on the other hand, would rather chat with his friends at the coffee shop and to help the owners of the other stalls collect their dishes and cutlery.


While I'm at it (and while the WoW server is down for its weekly maintenance), here's more images from the last three weeks:

1. More reasons why I don't like my estate sometimes:

So, besides the dickhead who pees in the lift every now and then and the idiot who leaves soda cans and empty packets of Yeo's on the stairway landings, there's also this asshole who thinks it's funny to damage shit.

And here there's trash. Left by people who think that the public trash bin is for everything piece of crap that used to mean something to them. And all this when there's a whole trash collection point within 50 metres of this mess.


2. Sometimes I just envy the guy.

Not always, but sometimes.

3. Taken while having supper in JB (at the place with the kick-ass sup kambing - the kind that doesn't quite drip off the soup but rather oozes off of it) after Zeus's wedding:

One wonders why the Nasi Campur and Nasi Beriani are listed under "prices according to the market"...

4. This shot after I was done with another film stills shoot. At a rather surprising place, on top of that - it's already given me some ideas for other shoots in the near future.

5. And this last one, just for the hell of it:

Because getting tagged by the neighbour is probably going to be the only reason why I'd blog nowadays...

Four jobs you've had in your life
Lab Assistant, Psych Department
Advertising Suit

Four movies you could watch over and over
LOTR - all three movies
Sin City
Saving Private Ryan

Four TV shows you love(d) to watch
Baa Baa Black Sheep

Four places you've lived
Telok Kurau
Somewhere in Burnaby, Vancouver
2/ 2711 Fairview Crescent, Vancouver

Four places you've been on vacation to

Four places you'd rather be
Not here

Four of your favourite foods
Mee Siam
Curry, any

Four websites you visit daily
CNA - because I don't get newspapers
NHL - because I need my fix

Four tagged


IMHO though, THIS is a much better meme.

When Night Elves Quarrel...

This should explain where I've been since my last update. Packrat went and got us each a copy of WoW, and, I don't know about him, I've been hooked ever since...

A Cowboy Wedding

A Cowboy Wedding
Originally uploaded by Terz.

Back from Johor this afternoon, but spent most of the rest of the afternoon asleep.

Will write more (or not) about the weekend later.

Updated Monday, 10 January 2006, 1924 hours:

OK, have completed the first round of treatment for Zeus's wedding (privacy set for Family and Friends only). Will upload to Flickr after this post goes through, so be patient, wait a couple of hours...

Those who were there, you all know my Flickr account; if not, add me first and I'll add you to the list of 'Family and Friends' if you are kosher.

The Postman Always Rings Twice

Originally uploaded by Terz.

Figured I should start the ball rolling for 2006 before I lapse too much.

Two noble houses, both alike in dignity. One leaves bills that have to be paid; the other, flyers from morons who think that killing several hundred trees a month will get them work - never mind if people who aren't looking for new homes will probably not care if you're the 'number 1 real estate agent' in the East; never mind they'd probably not think of you, the idiot jamming up their mailboxes, when they're ready to sell.

Funny thing though, legit mailman chooses not to castigate the other.


Anyway, not been updating because:

1. Looking to move out of the studio.

2. Looking to fly to Hanoi for a sabbatical - need the rest and the rediscovery of the discipline. And besides, I really need to be away from Singapore.

Which reminds me (and the missus was the one who told me to do this): does anyone want to come along? Cheaper airfare if there're two to fly. We'll just be flying in and out together, nothing else. I'd be too morose anyway to be good travelling company. Leave a comment if you're keen - I'm looking at a ten-day to two-week trip...

3. Having more parties - who said things only happen during the festive season?

4. Looking to streamline the business. I need to get a good system going for filing, quoting and billing and sticking to it.

5. Looking forward to an even better year ahead than 2005.
