Fish spa at home?

I bought some fishes for my mom on mothers day, those that nibble your feet when you put it in the water. She complained that it wasn't enough and she go order a hundred of them. And the result...

Mom's very own fish spa at home.

Have A Great Day

Sleeping Around with Fear

While most people try to avoid them out of fear, I spend most of my nights around them sleeping soundly without any fear or worries. Most people I know will feel disgusted, shock, surprised when they hear about my unusual interest, some even gave negative comments like "One day they come out and bite/eat you then you know.", I can't really blame and call them retards for their ignorance really, it's not their fault that our education system failed to deliver right?

One of my many tarantulas

Some of my roaches

In case you are wondering why roaches? Here's why, tarantula eats insects, roaches are insects, crickets are smelly and mites ridden. I breed my own roaches to keep my tarantulas safe from mites that might come with the crickets that are sold in most pet shop plus I know for a fact that the roaches I have eats good food. These are not you average roaches you find in the drain by the way.

Have a Great Day

p.s.: I know... this post is quite lame, not really in the mood today

The Last Communist

Spent the last 2 days in the jungle for a shoot, day 1 of the shoot was utter disaster so I rather not talk about it, I wasn't able to do much too thanks to my thumb so instead of "working" I was either taking pictures, walking in to the orang asli village to chat with the people, play with asli children or sleeping.
Skin is starting to fall off, ouch...

Day 2 of the shoot, the director made me put on a communist terrorist costume and run around the jungle and in the end got myself killed and beheaded by an Indonesian military personal, I was the only person there in a communist outfit while the rest are mostly Sarawak Rangers, and it looks as if I am a captured terrorist.
Acting as a communist terrorist caught in the Sarawak Communist Insurgency made me curious about how the communist were back then, and it's amazing how they can survive in the jungle and have their morale high as we were told by an army officer who is training near the shoot.

Well, I had my fun playing as a communist for a day at the shoot, and it's back to being myself now.

Have a Great Day

My injured thumb

In my previous post I did mentioned how I managed to seriously injure my thumb, now I would like to bitch about how inconvenient it is to have a thumb that's injured, allow me elaborate a little on the condition of my thumb first. The burned skin is starting to become dark, it is also starting to break at some part and water is flowing out of the broken skin.
The doctor instructions which was not to wet my wound, so every time I shower my right arm is held high as if I am in class ready to answer a question. I also had to wash my face and brush my teeth using my left arm this at least is not as bad as trying to reach for my wallet which now has become a challenge because of the friction between the wound and my pocket makes paying for anything very painful, literally.
When it comes to eating, I cannot use the chopstick properly, even using a spoon can be quite a pain, but I lost my mood to eat every time I see my injured thumb, I'm still getting enough food thou, don't really like the feeling of being hungry.
Trying to reply SMS om my phone is also starting to piss me off, had to take my time writing using my finger, sometime typing using the keyboard is a painful affair especially when I hit the space bar with the wrong side of my thumb.
Well, it's actually not that painful now and I think it's starting to heal despite the disgusting look, water flowing and all the crap.
Time to sleep.

Have a Great Day

Strata Falls Aftermath

Walking on sunshine, crossing the abandon oil palm estate

klown AKA Henry said...


lemme be the first to post results. We nearly had honey glazed thumb sausage a'la Heng for dinner due to unforseen circumstances that involved a Slurpee cup, a fly, and a lighter..

Thank you Henry for ASKING me to kill the fly... Now I shall continue with the full story, I was in a world of pain yesterday you can practically say that I had pain for dinner but before I move on to writing what happen let me first write about yesterday's hiking trip.
6.30AM, 7 of us gathered at our usual spot, the people that showed up includes Seng Keong, Aurelius, Josen, Henry, Eu Jin, Linus and myself, we started our journey to Proton City (More like Rempit Land) for Nasi Lemak Breakfast, after breakfast we head off to Diamond Creek located in Tanjung Malim where the start of the trail is. We found ourselves in what looks like an abandon oil palm estate, at about 15 minutes we started to find the jungle and as usual we had to get a little lost first. Luckily someone came out with a great idea of following the river, that dude who gave that suggestion is such a genius, anyway we started to walk upstream sometimes we had to climb a few huge rocks the size of a small house at some point even large ones.

Cam whore break: Mid way to the falls
After about an hour and 30 minutes we stopped and decided that some of us cannot move on and make it to the top, I wanted to reach the falls too but I never like the idea of splitting up or leaving anyone behind plus I can come again another day, so I decided to stay back and stay with the dudes who can't go on, even made them a nice fire to keep them warm until the other return.

The Reward: Strata Falls

at about 3pm, we started hiking back to the cars and head down to the nearest 7 11 for some food and Slurpee (Henry had 2 large ones and he manage to finish them faster then us having one), I was starting to feel some movement in the bowels,it must be the Nasi Lemak from Proton City. So I bought some traditional medicine (Poh Chai Yun) to help relief that and I must say it's not much help, we head for dinner near Batang Kali anyway.
At an old restaurant by the road we stopped for dinner, we placed our order and wait for our food and while waiting a fly flew in to somebody's slurpee and it got stuck, then someone asked me to kill the fly using one of my pyrotechnic tricks I usually perform involving a lighter and an aluminum can which involves holding gas from the lighter in to the can then lighting the mouth so that a jet of flame will shoot out from the can. I never tried it using a slurpee cup but in theory it should work the same but the cup might melt since it's plastic and since it's larger then a soft drink can it should be able to hold more gas and should have a longer and bigger jet of flames. I couldn't resist the idea so without much thinking I start filling the cup with gas from the lighter and try to light it, first time fail, second time didn't work but third time "Woosh!" it lights up! Shooting a jet of flames out of the hole but my thumb was in the way...
I watched my thumb get caught in the flame while my friends laugh at the misfortune of the fly (which didn't die from it) not knowing that I am injured, I was calm then and right after they stop laughing I told them that I got myself burn quite badly and my thumb was white. They instruct me to put cream or toothpaste to cool it while some of them said I should put it in ice (I guess I need to find a friend who is good at first aid) I walk to the payment counter and asked the cashier for toothpaste, she however have a better idea which is to apply honey on the inflicted area she opened a bottle and apply before I can agree to it, I thank her after that and go back to my table and took a sit while holding back my pain however very soon after that, I started to feel weak, my friends kept telling me that my lips were white and that I'm starting to look pale, I told them that my visions are fading very rapidly and I cannot see clearly, I told them that I want to rest in the car and forget about dinner for now but they kept trying to pursued me saying that I should eat and that I'll be alright, I was really hungry but I didn't care about food at that time, I wanted to lie down in my car and rest for a moment so I stood up while I still can see and slowly walk towards my car vision still fading, and then I fainted before I enter the car, luckily my friends were assisting me or I would have fallen flat to the ground, that point on the last thing I remembered was telling them which pocket my car keys were. I think I didn't pass out very long cause when I woke up my friend were pulling me into the car while the entire village came over to see what's going on, some of them were kind enough to offer water and medicine but I was feeling fine except for the pain from my thumb so we head for the clinic right after dinner.

Henry holding my wallet (Don't know why), while I'm in pain.

At the clinic, we were fooling around like monkeys as I moan to my pain while my friends were saying all kind of jokes such as "Too bad Amber Chia not here" and "His thumb is charred grilled and ready to eat, he even added honey!"
When the doctor asked me what had happen, I was too lazy and ashame to tell him the whole story so I just give him the short version, "I got burned by a lighter."
The doctor checked my blood pressure and heart beat, and said that it's all good however he's going to give me 2 jabs. "2 JABS!? Why are you giving me jabs?" I asked him to make things clear plus I'm quite afraid of needles (Hey! I'm honest!), he asked me to lie down and then gave me one jab on my left arm which wasn't that bad, he then asked me to turn over to lie down on my back, as I turn I asked the doctor "Is really necessary to jab me on my butt? Can I have a shorter needle? That one looks long and scary... wait please let me try to relax first, Nooooo!!!"
After leaving the clinic I walked as if I was given an anal probe, and the fact that I now have a pain in the butt and the thumb is still giving me a lot of pain, it really gives me a whole new understanding what the pain relief jab is for.
Honey glazed thumb sausage, I told you it's a sausage fest!

Well, I must say that I learned my lesson, never try that again on a large slurpee cup.

Have a Great Day

Grave of the forest

How many trees have to fall for us to wipe our ass?

A recent project had brought me to saw mills and wood processing plant, and it's really sad to see the amount of dead trees in the area. Simply imagine that more then a dozen or 2 dozens football fields filled with logs or sawed wood, the amount of wood there is so insane that you have to see it to believe it, everywhere I turn there is wood, even the ground is no longer soil, earth or mud, it's all covered in think layer of saw dust.
The biggest questions that runs in my mind are, where did all these trees come from? Who permits these logging activities? It's just crazy how fast the trees are being cut down and turn in to strips of wood and shipped out at a rate that it gives J.I.T (Just-in-Time) a whole new meaning.
Sad thing is that humans are killing themselves and they don't even realized it.

Have a Great Day,

The Pink Spider Memorial

I was looking for a video of X Japan performance where Yoshiki Hayashi starts the song with a slow relaxing solo tune on the piano, then continue with head banging beat on the drums, the dude is talented and the lighting of the stage performance in the video is sick!
I did not manage to find what I want, however I just learn that the band just had a memorial recently for their band member Hideto "Hide" Matsumoto who passed away on the 2th of May 1998.

Pink Spider was the nickname Yoshiki gave to Hide for his trademark pink hair

Now I return to my dose of Japanese Heavy Metal.

Have A Great Day

Movies to watch

Watched 2 movies for the last 2 days, and to me these are the 2 movies that everyone should watch.For a movie that was nominated for the best foreign language film on Golden Globe this film have a really low presents in our country, I only knew after being told about it and initially I wasn't really eager to watch it, but thankfully I did.
There are 2 thing that I like most about this film, one is the visual, I just love the way it was shot and I find every scene beautifully taken. The second think I like about this film is the story, a story of a man who seeks redemption for the thing he did during his childhood, and a loyal servant who would do anything including losing his own life for his master or his friend.

Hassan: For you, a thousand times over

Unlike the kite runner, Iron man (or "Orang Besi" in Bahasa) is one of the most talked about movies among my circle of friends, I guess most of my friends are fans of Marvel Comic, most of them watch it before I did anyway.
I don't really need to say much about Iron man except for "Rock & Roll, Baby!". I'm Gonna Love the soundtrack.

Tony Stark: Is it better to be feared or respected? And I'd say is it too much to ask for both?

Have a Great Day

Haven't Shower: since 1983

I got no clay and I got no way to transfer pictures on to my computer, so I got to draw using a touch pad because I couldn't use the mouse, I had to use MS Paint because my Photoshop has expired, but at least I came up with something today.

note: The above events are all real, that includes not having my shower.

Have a GREAT Day
