    For those who are interested, I have a music blog at You will find music that I've put online without permission from the rightful owners and all kinds of musical things. I will keep this blog for non-music related smart-ass comments.

    It's the Chinese New Year again. Usually also known as "The Annual Batdude Blogfest" held yearly in Melaka, this time things were different. For one, I did not plug into the Internet for more than four days! That's a record for me. And I survived.

    And the reason why I had blogfest in the first place; which is to keep me from hurting myself with blunt but still usable knives due to the boredom that Melaka offers, I was not bored this time. For this time, I planned well. One week before I left, I downloaded 14 episodes of "Heroes" and I brought that along with my "The Office" DVDs.

    That about sums it up: "Heroes" and sleeping, waking up only to eat. I am talking about 15-hour sleep days.

    This Chinese New Year was also different for another reason. It's the first time for me to be in Melaka celebrating CNY without my grandmother. So that was weird for me. And that also meant that the reunion dinner was at my parent's. When you only have ONE sister who lives in the same city as you, a family reunion dinner seems pretty silly. The moral of the story here is to have lots of kids. Family reunions are more fun that way.

    Now I am back in KL. I start making music again tomorrow. I am excited.

    Because of Mr. Manager...

    Six Things You Did Not Know About Me.

    1. It takes me less than five seconds to fall asleep once my head hits the pillow.

    2. I watch the "Special Features" on the DVDs I buy and hardly watch the actual movie itself. Even if I do watch the movie, I watch it with the commentary.

    3. My favourite kind of music is jazz.

    4. When I write a song, the greatest practical motivation for me is money. The creative motivation is the artist I am writing for.

    5. I do not read or write music notation.

    6. I have more than 15 black T-shirts.
    More often that not, Malaysians (which includes The Star newspaper and RTM TV) do not realise this. It is not polite to refer to Japanese people as "Jap". While I am at it, it is also impolite and downright rude to refer to people from Pakistan as "Paki", or to refer to black people as "nigger" or "negro". Don't say I didn't warn you.

    This is how pathetic I am. I just recently discovered jambu air. I've seen it around but I never got around to eating one. Then a friend offered one to me about six months ago. I can't enough of it.

    Also called "rose apple" or "water apple", the jambu air which is of genus Syzygium, and is in the Myrtaceae species, native to Malaysia and Indonesia. Other common names include wax apple, love apple, java apple, wax jambu, and bell fruit.

    It retails for about RM5.00-RM-5.50 per kg.
    This blog update is dedicated to Azlan Abu Hassan, winner of Anugerah Juara Lagu 2007 with "Terlalu Istimewa." He owns three Universal Audio UAD-1 DSP cards and has every string and orchestra sample library known to man. He is also on a quest for that 1-terabyte grand piano sample library. Still, I love him and call him a friend.
