Read this you mask-maniacs

Ahh I love these kind of articles. They shake up your knowledge on wut you thought you already know and make you learn something new. I mean I already know about this but not enough ppl know about it yet. So...

I'm not joking. Go read this article: http://medicine.com.my/wp/?p=7760

So the mask is either useless, or not good enough. Let's start buying respirators!!! Then we can cosplay Counter-Strike all day long!


Hey I just realise i've got a new website to follow. This website is fun! Serious/informative yet fun at the same time! LOL.

Oi keep that hand away from yourself

*Puts on my myth busting suit, ready for action*

Ok I think it's my turn to blog about the H1N1 thing. Particularly I would like to talk about this remedy of preventing the flu virus. Guess wut? Dr. V. M. Palaniappan (i'm juz kopipasta-ing) recommends [quote] avoiding dry masturbation and homosexual activities [/quote]. I'm not BS-ing here's the link.

Better still here's a screen shot:

Note that it emphasises that heterosexual intercourse is perfectly OK. A little homophobic, isn't he? And who is this "Dr. V. M. Palaniappan"?


Let's see wut is the interweb's response to our leading scientist's remedy.

I love this one:

OK let's see wut the web say about masturbation.

Wiki says:

Here. I wouldn't recommend reading the methods part. It has got live pics.

From here.

Now I've been cool-ly playing along when offering flu-prevention advice. You noe, having a laugh or two from it. But when ppl get serious about it coz they read it from some 'reputable' new source, I can't stand but laugh at them.

Bernama is not a reputable news source. It is the most bias-ed news source i've ever seen. No 'independent' news agency will air a political party leader promoting his own party. Never. How are you going to justify airing one side of the story?

And now this. I'm fed up wit the local community being ignorant and naive about scientific facts. Even a national news source is like that. This PhD holder just took it a step further. Friction from masturbation and gay sex but not hetero sex? WHAT THA FARK? Tell me how different masturbation is from normal intercourse. I bet he never masturbates before. Wait does he even noe wut is friction?


No wonder they say you can't even trust the news nowadays.

Myth busted or not, you decide.

Ayham Starthing Thuu Misthew is Swahili for 'Holidays Suck'

Electrical blackout few days ago. Dunno for wut reason the electric house (?) keeps breaking down. Copper at a very good price now ah?

Wut's a dark house good for? Grab an LED light and shine away!

"Ladies and gents, introducing the Ferrari..."

The whole idea started off by me trying to see how the brushed glass table looked like when shone from below. Grabbed the Enzo and voila! Not that enlightening but just feel like posting.

*cues dramatic car launching music* " ...Enzo!!~"

Guess it's a noob's stepping stone to actual strobing.

I should be dusting the Enzo since I'm taking so many photos of it lately...


The WB for this pic was awfully blueish. If it wasn't for Lightroom this pic wouldn't have survived. I dunno about you but I like the lack of vibrance in this pic. Super noisy but who cares.

Not that much reading material this time coz someone says my blog is boring. Hmph!

When Is Zero Percent Zero Percent?

This got me thinking. Could the invention of batteries actually be a scam? Like things didn't actually need electricity to work. But if you tell ppl who bought them that, they would take the product for granted and use it like a pencil (you get the idea). But you put in elements of care and nurture, that product might not be just a product. It becomes a pet, it becomes a family member, it becomes part of your life.

The battery. The supposed lifesource of all electronic gadgets. You're supposed to feed it electricity whenever it says it needs to be fed. Underfeed it and you'll have to feed it very frequently. Overfeed it and you'll decrease the longevity of the lifesource.

The manufacturers actually went so far as to totally disable the device when the battery is removed, making people believe that the battery is an essential part of the device. But wut I've shown here, ladies and gents, is that when the battery's showing 0%, it doesn't die. This only means one thing: it's a scam. You don't have to recharge the batteries. Leave it there and it'll survive by it's own. No recharging needed.

You say that your phone dies after the indicator shows no more charge? That's the scam at work. You need to care for the device, therefore you need to feed it. The frequency of this depends on how the manufacturer programs the feeding mechanism. Some want you to show more love and nurture, therefore batteries 'dying' faster. Some want you to nurture it for as much as you've used it, therefore batteries dying depending on usage. Some juz dun care about it, and thus you have the 0% battery.

The battery works this way: after a certain period of time predetermined by the programming of the manufacturer, it automatically disables the phone by showing an unpowered screen and unresponsive keypads (that's why you cannot turn it on when the battery's dead, see?). After a certain period of time predetermined by the programming of the manufacturer, the battery 'recovers' to 100% and the user is granted partial access to the device. Why partial? Because you are not allowed to reprogram the feeding mechanism.

Isn't this like nurturing for a pet? You feed it, you play wit it. You dun feed it, it dies. Life's a cycle pretty much like the wheel of a bus. It goes round and round and round like a flywheel.

So the next time your battery 'dies', you know that it's not actually out of electricity, but lack of attention. Give it some attention by allowing it to have sex with the pointy device included in your purchase package when you purchase your electronic gadget. No repeated thrusting motion is needed as electronics do not have sex the same way as us multicellular complex organisms. They are made out of transistors and integrated circuits, wut do you expect?

When was the last time you nurtured your electronic devices?

P/S: Hey in case yer wondering, this is a pile of BS I thought up when I was just gonna talk about the incidence of battery indicator showing zero percent and still running. Anyway, it's poking fun at conspiracy theories and unproven pseudo-scientific articles. You should read about magnetic assistance for bloodflow using magnetised ring/bangle.

What's Your Favourite Food?

I dunno how to make this post lengthy, so I'll try to develop it as I go yea?

There's once I thought "wut if someone asks you wut's your favourite food?"

Do you tell them wut you currently like to eat?

Or your all-time favourite food?

Coz when you have a current food that you like you might rank your all-time favourite 2nd.

And if you like your all time favourite 1st, your current favourite wouldn't be your current favourite anymore coz it'll be your current 2nd.


"What's your favourite food?"

Is it your all time favourite?

Or your current favourite?

Maybe it's a nice food you enjoy at the moment coz yer not eating your favourite, be it your current or all-time favourite?

Or your favourite food is actually one part of a food?

Is it your favourite sweet food?

Or favourite savory food?

Or the food that's your favourite to make?

Is it the food you wished you could eat all day long?

Or the one you wish you could eat everyday?

Is it the favourite food you'll crave for from time to time?

Or the one you can't live without?

Maybe it's the one you've been subconsciously eating all the time?

Or you're just a pathetic anorexic that hates food?

So, "What's Your Favourite Food?"

Sometimes it's just so hard to tell wut you like, wut you love or, as MY would put it, "wut you lust for". Like, love and lust. 3 words starting with 'L' that has a meaning so close to each other yet representing 3 different levels of the same thing - affection.

Think about it.

P/S: This post was originally titled "Where Your Stomach At?" but was changed due to the overly repeated phrase of 'favourite'. Guess it was changed for the better.

P/S 2: I've been wanting to make a food post for a while now. Been taking pics of food but couldn't wait for that long. Dug up some old pics, recycled a few.

P/S 3: I dunno, but i wanted to put some hidden messages into the post, but, well, if you can pick it up, great, if you can't, then too bad. :-P

Where's My Chicken At?

Was a lil bored this weekend. Ended up buying a piece of chicken breast. Always wanted to try marinading chicken with orange juice....

In goes some onion and garlic (and salt and pepper, but barely noticable. Hrmm..). I like chopping up onions like how they do it on TV. Damn nice to play. XD

Then seared the meat by itself.

It was ok until I had this evil idea of getting some juice in to sorta 'glaze' the meat. Super fail I tell you. Coz the pan was a lil too hot (lowest heat tim, damn huh?) And turned blackish like right a few seconds after I drizzled some in. It didn't taste pleasant.

Good thing didn't affect the taste much. Maybe the chicken's cooked to perfection? :-P

Onions and garlic sauteed separately.

Then this evil thought of making a sauce from the marinade came. "Why not?", I told myself and before I knew the whole bowl of marinade was poured into the pan. Let it evaporate a bit den couldn't wait already, time to serve that thing.

I muz admit, the sauce sucks. The initial taste was bland, then the orangy weird taste kicks in and you're left with raped tastebuds. Weirdly enough if eat the chicken wit bread and drizzle the sauce onto it, it tasted ok. Juz barely ok though...

Urghh I'm not gonna make my own flavouring next time. It's better to stick to original taste for now. Oh yeah I juz remembered. This was all due to my 'kiam sat-ness". I was given the option to buy sweet oranges or sunkist oranges. The sweet one is Rm1, the sunkist was 40 cents. I bought 2 of the cheaper option. LOL. Damn I even took the effort to zest the oranges. LOL~~~

Not to be left defeated, I cooked the remaining portion of chicken breast the next day (today). I thought: "hrmm... is it really that delicious to sear meat wit only salt and pepper? Hey I miss that Cordon Bleu from Secret Recipe...."

And here we have...

Cut the remaining breast into 2 portions. Expanded one a bit wit the book flip trick. Made a pocket in the other.

As Jamie would put it "a lil' salt and pe'r..."

And I thought: "bread crumbs! bread crumbs!"

Sacrificed a piece of bread, the first piece of the loaf anyway. Toasted it at high heat for 10 i think.

I pan fried the cordon bleu a bit for like 5 a side den wacked in the oven for another 10. The smell was awesome.

Chicken steak was easier. 5 a side den gao dim. Flipping it once is my only stubborn-ness in making food. Makes the perfect meat everytime.

One chicken breast and one cordon bleu coming up!

Breakfast is served! Playing wit the cam gave the food enough time to relax. Jamie yang ajar tu...

Kind of punctured the pocket while doin the thing. Had cheese all over the place in the oven.

I would say salt and pepper is the best way to eat a piece of chicken breast. DAMN NICE!!! But must be black pepper though. Whites dun go well wit anything.

Snapped this halfway thru eating it. I swear I'm gonna make this again. It is that good. The chicken liquid/juice thing mixed wit the cheese (juz ordinary breakfast cheese) is heaven.

Now I gotta learn to make side dishes. Can't be eating all these goodies wit bread all the time...

P/S: I love Lightroom. It's fun salvaging lost details!
