what a day

what an unlucky day. finally decided to watch Gamer at shaw after work since i have an hr plus to kill before i can shut down my system and also because no one is interested in the movie. 5 min into the movie i realised the aspect ratio of the film is wrong. instead of a normal widescreen (16:9), it was a cropped dimension. i might as well have bought a pirated DVD and watch it on TV. i pay good money to enjoy a movie and expects the screen to be filled up but instead, i have a restricted view of the shots. what a fucking waste. i couldn't concentrate as i ponder whether to talk to the cinema people. then my boss called me and check on stuff. i didn't mind to get out of the theatre to take the call. after the call i decided look for cinema staff to ask about the dimension (since i'm already outside). i wasted almost 15min looking for people and finally get to talk to the manager. he checked and told me it is like that, nothing is wrong. i decided to forget it, and continue with whatever i have left of the movie. my final conclusion of the movie is good visual effects but weak story. maybe also part of it is spoilt by the wrong aspect ratio and bits i missed out on.

then i waited for the bus. it came, stopped in front of me but i had to see it go past me because singaporeans are so inconsiderate. there was a big space in the center of the bus enough for at least 4 people to stand but nobody moved in after some considerate passengers move further into the bus. so there was such a big cramp at the entrance door and therefore the bus driver drove away. i got really pissed. and i got even more pissed cos i had to wait for 15 min for the next bus.

finally got home and decided maybe i shd continue with my Lost. and i got this message "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by PASTECOPYRIGHTHOLDER." how lucky can i get. i am stuck at the last 4 episodes of the season 2. i have nothing to say.

it's been a while

it's been a long while since i last blogged. the last post was abt finally going to leave ochre for good. and now i'm already into the 3rd month at iceberg. my freelance deal is supposed to be up by this week but i might be staying on. which shall do me some good, loads more things to learn. it's like the school for post production.

actually today was quite sian. i was playing with my guitar when i realised the volume and tone knobs got stucked. AGAIN. this is the 2nd time. i brought it back to the place the first time and i thought i've got it fixed. but NO. the problem came back again after 2months. though i don't change my settings often, stucked knobs are not acceptable. and only 5months with me. i'm going to send it back to where i bought it again since still under warranty. if this problem arises again i might as well spend money and bring it to a tech who can do the job properly. it just upsets me to see my guitar like this. =(

as i read the forums it seemed like other guitars had this problem but not yet seen one abt a fender guitar. i hope i've not brought back a display set -__-

oh well i shall get it fixed soon and have a chocolate now =)

hello world

i'm finally getting out to take a breather. though maybe for a week, and then i'll start somewhere new. but at least i'm out! finally giving myself a bit more time. i hope the new job is slightly better, with enough rests and breaks, esp during weekends. for 6 months with almost all ur weekends taken up, it's too much. even army boys get their weekends off. we are not machines we cannot work everyday. i dunno when they'll get that idea into their head. it's not as if they work everyday. well i don't see them do that. i think i'm not ready to get tied down to a place for a long period of time. like where i am now (for the last week!). so i'll try freelance, which is what i'll be doing for this new job, for 3 months.

i'm enjoying myself more these last few weeks. altho everything's a mad rush, i realised how i can find time for myself or other commitments if i have to. shd have done tt long time ago, but i know i won't becos i was still new, and will try to chiong. tt's so not right. but whatever it is, it's going to be over now.

colleagues are the only ppl i'll miss. enjoyed lunches, breaks, gossips and bitching with most of them. i'd also started jamming with some of them, which is a real de-stress after a hard day's work. for allllll of us.

still remember i was really looking forward to working here last year this time. in a year's time i can't wait to leave.

oh well. so much to say. i think most of u have heard most of it haha...

ok i think i can go off soon... so see ya soon, whoever i've not seen in the longest time!

i am annoyed

not a very good start into the 1st day of work of the new year. it seemed like any other regular day, only worse. that was yesterday. i got very very annoyed with a couple of people. do not ask me redundant question while i'm working. do not distract me with ur nonsense. do not tell me random things when i'm trying to concentrate. if you bloody well wants me to concentrate on doing ur show, then DO NOT distract me with your ridiculous remarks and $6000 bag. if somebody is irritating you, go tell them off yourself don't drag me into it. you'll leave for the day much earlier than me so stop complaining about wanting to leave early. i have another shift coming up after your shift. so stop fucking whining. it makes me cringe. and another one. do not ask me questions again and again, for the millionth time i've been repeating myself, by telling you the procedures again and again. i have a bloody long week ahead of me without any break thanks to your arrangements. all i need is not making any of my day worse. i have even more annoyance to deal with at the end of the week. i am NOT looking forward to that. so stop making your problem sound like the biggest and the most important cos every fucking show are fucking urgent at the top of my list.

good times bad times

weaving through the different kinds of music, i'm currently stuck at Led Zeppelin. and now i understood why they're heroes and why a million over ppl are fighting over 20,000 tickets for their reunion concert tmr.

i wish i wish i wish... i wish i have time to do things that i want to do. time really flies and then you'll realise that it's been a month since you've seen a soul. everyday you'll work and work and weeks just pass by like that. i'm on my 4th day of my 10 day stretch. it's madness if nobody's going to hire another person to help me and my colleague. though this week will be slightly better cos somebody is coming back to help for a week =)

if interesting things happen will you work, then it won't be so bad. =) just like one of the nights last week (hehe). and that rainy day when me and my colleagues are stuck outside funan with packets of toilet rolls scattered around us as we waited for the rain. and this coming week shall be better as well. so you'll have to constantly find things to amuse yourself or wait for things to happen to amuse you, and your long day won't be a bore. rather than constantly sulking.

a whole lotta love!

have a nice day

suddenly the song came to me the other day at the end of my night shift. i went on to look for the song immediately. it's making me happy. it's like a nice memory that pops up in your mind and you just want to re-live it again. then when i was having supper at bk eating house just now, the song was playing on the radio. that made me smile.

i'm ending my night shift earlier (director was tired as well). i'm getting very tired and aching from coughing. for the past 2 weeks i've been seeing the doctor on every tuesday. so was yesterday after work. the doctor had been giving me mc for every visit. i never use it today. only today. i hope i can break the tuesday-doctor curse.

i wish i'm lying on the green grass with blue sky and white clouds above me. and i'm falling asleep with stereophonics' "have a nice day" playing.

True Love Waits

True Love Waits

I'll drown my beliefs
To have you be in peace
I'll dress like your niece
To wash your swollen feet

Just don't leave
Don't leave

I'm not living
I'm just killing time
Your tiny hands
Your crazy kitten smile

Just don't leave
Don't leave

And true love waits
In haunted attics
And true love lives
On lollipops and crisps

Just don't leave
Don't leave

Just don't leave
Don't leave

(oh thom you've got such beautiful voice, no girl will have the heart to leave.)

my director was afraid i'll cough my lungs out, she decided to finish an ep faster. and i'm sitting here, happened to get stuck to this song (again). it's so nice to listen to it at night. it melts my heart everytime i hear it. radiohead's acoustics are really nice to listen to these days, esp at night.
