I nostalgia’d. Who else remembers this?

And now, a bit of good literature to stretch and warm up my writing muscles, which are quite out of shape due to neglect.
You walk beneath the spiraling lamp and step through the glass door into a sleekly-designed shop of black and red-coloured furnishings. The lady at the counter with the thick makeup immediately acknowledges your presence and asks in Chinese if you want a simple haircut. You say yes, and she directs you to an empty barber’s chair.
You cross the tiled floor littered with bunches of hair strands and lower yourself onto the seat. Promptly an apron-clad woman appears behind you, razor at the ready.
You ask for a high-slope; she confirms your order by repeating it, using the Singapore Armed Forces term, and you understand that she knows exactly what you’re thinking.
You remove your glasses while the woman wraps a cape around your neck. You stare blankly at the reflection before you, lost in your thoughts as she deftly shaves off tufts of hair, using a comb and razor in tandem. Every now and then she would pause and touch her fingers against your scalp, subconsciously beckoning you to tilt your head to give her a better angle, before resuming.
5 minutes in and she retires the razor and takes up a pair of scissors to make fine adjustments.
You eventually become aware of tiny stubs of hair lodged uncomfortably in between your neck and the cape. Worse still, there are bits and strands of hair all over your cheeks and nose. Despite this you keep still and put up with the discomfort, patiently waiting for the barber to finish.
A few moments later and she appears to be done. She walks around you to reach for a hairdresser’s mirror and positions it for you to evaluate your new hairstyle. You squint against your near-sighted vision, usable to put on your glasses as your hands are kept beneath the cape. You’re unsure, but you tell her it’s alright. She puts away the mirror and uses a hair dryer to blow away the bits of hair on your face and neck, and removes the cape off you with a hairy flourish.
You pay the fee and go home. Your father notices your haircut and remarks that it is uneven. Spectacles on, you gaze into a mirror but don’t really see what he means. You shrug, and remind yourself that you only needed to pay $3.80 for it.
Thank you, Snip Avenue!
I’m not usually the sort to be enticed by advertisements, even if they are interactive ones online. But this video which turned out to be an ad for Pringles sure caught my eye. Continue reading
I know this Internet meme has been going round for quite some time already and that I’m quite late to be blogging about it only now(busy doing IRL stuff), but I realized that it is really quite interesting and appealing, at least to my tastes (and not just because it’s partially Japanese, srsly guiz go faq yourselves) so I deemed it suitable enough to fill some space here.
Get Down! (ゲッダン) is an Internet meme which combines a crazy idea with crazy images and crazy music to produce an Internet meme that is infectious, funny and three times the awesome. Continue reading

I decided to just post a screenshot of my desktop today. Booting up Windows and waiting for my account to finish loading, I took look around my recently revamped desktop and wallpaper (I spend a lot of time just staring at Erika mostly), and I realized that there are plenty of features that reflect a lot on my normal human personality. So I thought I’d just share this with you.
As you can see, all my icons are stacked neatly into two complete rows to the left side of the screen. I’m quite the stickler when it comes to organization. I also think it’s very nicely balanced that I have my icons to the left and my sidebar to the right.
The folder called Downloads is where all files downloaded from the Internet through all the browsers I use are streamed into. I sort them out into their respective folders within my user account every once a week.
My recycling bin hasn’t been emptied for a while though…
I like to keep My Computer and Control Panel at easy access for me because I’m constantly using Flash drives and tweaking my computer interface. Most of the icons you see here are shortcuts to the games I frequently play. As you can see, I’m mostly into RTS games. I play DTXMania to train myself in playing the actual DrumMania at the arcade. Guitar pro 5 is a guitar tab reader that helps me a lot when I’m playing songs on my guitar. Freespace 2 is a very old game (ten years old by now I think) that I used to love as a wee little tyke, and still do to this day. Team Fortress 2 is my latest addiction from Steam. Unfortunately, this computer can’t handle most newer-generation games very well…
Looking down, you can see that I’ve expanded my left taskbar. Firefox and WMP are the two programs I execute first and foremost the moment my account is running. I keep the rest of my installed browsers in this flip-up window as I have a tendency to switch browsers while surfing, to constantly compare their pageload speeds.
I like trying new things, that’s why you can see I’ve downloaded the newest version of Windows Live Messenger, Messenger 2009 Beta. Download link is in previous post.
Taking your attention to the right of the desktop, Bitcomet has been useful in helping me share and receive useful files with and from my ‘peers’. No I do nothing illegal with it, you have my word.
The calendar up there helps me count down how many days I have left till school (currently stands at 1), so I know when I should be rushing with holiday assignments.
A friend helped me download this custom clock skin. I loved the Transformers movie, but no more so than the cartoon series.
The currency calculator has proven to be of tremendous help whenever I’m checking Japanese merchandise prices, or just observing the foreign exchange markets. I’m quite worried about the exchange rate currently, although it has dropped very nicely of late.
I keep plenty of notes to remind me of things worth remembering that I can’t for the life of it keep in my mind. They are mostly things in my wishlist, things to buy, things to do within the week, etc. A very helpful organizational tool.
Lastly, I like to keep this sliding puzzle in my sidebar. it brings back fond childhood memories, evokes great feelings of retro nostalgia, and most importantly, whenever I’m waiting for videos or other applications to load I find myself hitting Windows+D and fiddling around with this puzzle, trying to beat my latest time (my best still stands at 45 seconds). the perfect short-term time-killer.
So, how does your desktop reflect on your personality?
Finally, we come to 2009, the year of the Haruhi (projected year over which the events of The Melancholy took place. No SRSLY, go investigate on that), and the year of my official legality, although it really means nothing since I know I will hardly have any time to get a driver’s license, drink beer, smoke or watch M18 movies.
Here’s wishing everybody a promising year ahead. I would advise you stop bothering with New Year’s Resolutions like I have as we all know just how easily we tend to forget them by the time March or April sets in. By the time we remember that we had forgotten about them, it would be the end of yet another December, and we would have no choice but to snowball them into next year’s resolutions. Rinse and repeat a few years, and you get a list of sins you can dedicate to your nearby church. Just for the record, we all still keep a certain kind of resolution throughout the year no matter what, and mine for 2008 has been my Compaq Presario’s 1200X800 15-inch screen.
I ought to resolve to tone down on the lame jokes.
All that banter aside, it was two days ago at home, when I got so bored that I found myself playing around with my star Wars figurines again. The poor guys had been collecting dust at the far corner of my study desk for a few weeks now. I figured it would be a dear waste of time if I just toyed around with them like that, so I whipped out mum’s camera and, before I knew it, I had created a pilot section of a comic series depicting the adventures of a bunch of Clone Trooper figures exploring a messy desktop.
Before I resume with Day 2 of AFA 2008 (might I just inform you that, given the kind of workload I put on myself to complete such a comprehensive blog post as that, Blogger really sucks as a co-worker? It is all a matter of Typing text, uploading only five pics at a time, sometimes having to type out the entire filename into the test box to get it to ‘open’, sometimes having to refresh the file browsing window cos it just won’t load, then waiting for the CSS to appear at the top of the text body after uploading, hitting cutting and pasting to the appropriate places, rinsing and repeating), I’d just like to direct you to this post right here which really made me LOL and forget my worries for a little while.
*Clears the dust*
After yet another long period of absence (again, mostly due to Facebook, studying, and my most recent return to AnimeB.com), I come back to blogging with this great announcement. Great only if you’re an avid collector of good Smile merch (figures and the like).
As you might’ve read from my contemporary blogs, the English Version of the Good Smile Company has finally been set up, thanks to the translators at dannychoo.com who offered to help (I did chip in, but only very little due to my insignificant command of the language) and Danny Choo himself, a loyal friend to the people at Good Smile, who set up the site. Learn about all your latest Revoltech and figma releases (I intend to get Figma Tsuruya and Ryouko end of this year btw) and drop by at Danny’s corner where he will be reviewing his own Good Smile figures (given too him for free, damn). Do drop by to visit whenever you’re free, yeah?
For lack of anything else better to say today in this post, apart from my concerns that I’m absolutely not ready for the final exams, I’ll just be posting all the random pix I draw over MSN Messenger.
And a certain hand I happened to start a game of Hearts with:
You can tell. I’m bored as hell. Although, I did find plenty to do in my spare time, stuff which I can actually talk about on my blog. When I have the time. And when I’m not feeling lazy. Stuff like Touhou Hisouten (Scarlet Weather Rhapsody). Or all those Japanese-themed events I so happen to miss just because I don’t even know of their existences. Or my lack of funds. Or the Stormtrooper outfit I intend to build one day. Or the Star Wars Expanded Universe story I’m writing (when I have the time, and when I’m not feeling lazy). But whatever. Nothing else for now.
