The Bolehbolehland

be Malaysian!:
+ The notice ‘Sila Beri Laluan Kepada Penumpang Yang Ingin Turun Daripada Tren Terlebih Dahulu’ on LRTs and trains is totally crap and actually does not mean anything. It is just for solely decorative purposes only. So if you want to board any train, just stand right in front of the door and the second it opens, hustle and push your way in. Better still, if you are in a group, just board the train simultaneously. Never mind the people that want to get out off the train, they will be more than happy to give you way. Hey, you deserved that seat!

+ When you are driving, and it rains heavily, don’t forget turn on your hazard lights so that other drivers will see your vehicle easily. And they will not be confused whether your vehicle is actually moving or stopping. Road safety tips stated that you should only switch on the hazard lights when your vehicle breaks down or is involved in an accident. Bah! What a great lie.

+ If you are lucky enough to get interviewed by some TV station for a Bahasa Malaysia speaking program like maybe Buletin Utama, and they are asking you some question like maybe “Apakah pendapat encik tentang kenaikan harga minyak sekarang ini?”, answer it in Bahasa Malaysia with as many English words you can fit in. The more the better. Suggested words are like ‘well’, ‘actually’, ‘just’, ‘government’, ‘we all’. Yes, it is a Bahasa Malaysia speaking program but you must look intelligent on TV right?

+ last but not least, alltogether now, 'Malaysia Boleh!'

+ Seven Collar T-Shirt – Drones. Only bought it yesterday so I guess it will be in the playlist for these couple of days. Noticed a new greatest hits album by Pearl Jam at the store, digipak, imported and all. All the songs are available in their previous studio albums so there’s no point in wasting my money for it. Good for first time listeners and budak-budak sekolah that want to impress their girlfriends. I better save the money for maybe Belle & Sebastian’s Dear Catastrophe Waitress or something.

new things that I learned today:
+ you can’t pay DBKL Pusat Pengurusan Perumahan’s water bill via Maybank2u (and yes, ours is way overdue)
+ Page Hamilton is back with a new Helmet, all new songs, and a quest to bring rock back to the mainstream with the new album. Unfortunately, he fails short.
+ from a survey :
• only 3 percent of online artists said the internet has had a major negative effect on their ability to protect their creative works
• 52 percent of artists said it should be illegal for internet users to share unauthorized music files, compared with 37 percent who said it should be legal
• 64 percent of artists said they think the copyright owner should have complete control over the use of a work
• 77 percent of artists use the internet

+ Rooney - Rooney
+ Super Furry Animals - Rings Around The World
+ Various Artists - Wicker Park Soundtrack
+ The Mars Volta - Drunkship Of Lanterns (Live at Santa Barbara) - Video
+ The Mars Volta - Inertiatic (Live at Santa Barbara) - Video
+ Butterfingers - Siaran Tergendala (Live at Latte@8TV) - Video

template update:
+ added k u n o c r i e s and difficultalgebra sections in the sidebar. as time passed, I realized that this blog is mainly about music and things related to it (and Rina, of course). Although my musical knowledge is just about the same of any ERA and Hitz FM listeners out there, it is still much more than all of my other knowledge fields combined

Walk and commute and walk and commute

I don't drive to work.
I walk and I commute and then I walk some more.
And yes I don't own a car.
With my trusty CD Walkman and either NST's Computimes or The Star's InTech I walk and I commute.
Did I mentioned that I don't own a car? Sigh...*

Every single morning I take the PUTRA LRT and then I take the KTM Komuter to work. I do believe that our public transportation system is reliable enough to get us through our daily activities. Lucky for me the office is just a walk away from the Komuter station. At least I can get some exercise from all the walking. I like to watch people around me. At the stations, in the trains. All kinds of people with all kinds of behaviours trying to get to their destination as soon as possible. Men, women, tall, short, Indons... all kinds of them. I do wish that I can ignore them and just dig in to whatever is playing in the discman (currently it is either Cave In or Ambulance LTD) and just read the bloody newspaper. But the truth is that I can't. Believe me I did try, hard. But I just can't help it!

There are yuppies tapping something on their laptop (most propably is BenQ), prentending that they can get a Wi-Fi signal and prentending that they are busy replying emails or surfing the web. Showing to the people around them that they are the true mobile techies, when the most that they can do is either playing Solitaire or Minesweeper. Some of them also thinks that turning up their crappy laptop speakers' volume is really a cool idea while Winamp is playing Linkin Park or Sum 41 or Simple Plan or some other mall-punk crap. Bah! More on 'The People That I Saw in my future postings.

template updates:
+ added Haloscan's comment and trackback function. Thanks to Zaha Si Celik IT for the info
+ added some free music downloads and online radio links in the sidebar. Go and listen to awesome new bands/artists, there are tonnes of them out there
+ added 'currently online' function. free by fastonlineusers

new things that i learned these couple of days:
+ people eat cum
+ PHP coding with 'register_globals' off
+ the word 'abbadon' as in Pinback's Summer In Abbadon means 'hell' in Hebrew
+ banks only allow loans up to 1/3 of an individual’s monthly pay for property (real estate) loans

About me

  • I'm a m o y i e
  • From Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • " SETIAP HARI HATI BERBUNGA..." Typical male that whines a lot. Most likely to be found struggling to deliver a solid grounder cross from the right side at the KLHA Pantai Stadium every Saturday night. Char Kue Teow at Mali's Corner is the best. Prefers British bands.
