Entry 14 : Of Recycled Harmonic Orchestra

Little meaning is given to trash and garbage as they serve no purpose. However, a new meaning is given to trash and garbage for Cateura, Paraguay a small city that has grown upon a massive garbage dump and is regarded as one of the poorest slums in Latin America.

It all started by a guy named Cola who found a piece of trash that looks like a violin and brought it to Favio, a musician. The pair created a functional violin in a place where.. a real violin is worth more than a house. Thus, the pair further create a cello, a flute, a drum completely out of trash.


(Pictures taken from Creative Visions Foundation)

What really caught my attention is that people of Cateura, Paraguay gave a meaning, a purpose of trash and garbage that it could be something beyond our imaginations.. and that is music, a form of art that plays around with our emotions. 
One thing that saddens me is a quote from Favio Chavez, "The world sends us garbage. We send back music". People of Cateura, Paraguay have reached the point where they make musical instruments out of junk. 
What I am trying to say here is that, in general.. arts should be available to all humanity. Arts like music and.. especially music, connects us, giving a mysterious experience of one's self in relation to the universe.

On the bright side, it is truly a miracle that an orchestra is born in one of the most depressed areas in the world. Now a group of filmmakers, producers, and photographers are trying to tell a story of how instruments made from recycled trash bring hope to children whose future is otherwise spiritless through a documentary titled "Landfill Harmonic". 
This, without doubt will bring a change to the lives and hopes of Cateura, Paraguay.

Cheers,
Jason

Entry 13 : A reality or dream?

Last night, I re-watched the movie "Inception" which was dated back three years ago. Frankly speaking, I didn't understand a single shit of what was happening when I first watched the movie.
After watching it for the second time and eventually the third time. I really like the concept of dream within a dream and the idea of people sharing a dream space.

In fact, I like the whole concept of Inception itself, implanting an idea into a person's subconscious while they are sleeping, an idea that is like a virus, resilient, highly contagious that even the smallest seed of an idea can grow to define or destroy you.

Which brings me to the question of how do we know we are living in reality and not a dream? 
What I am trying to say here is that.. What if what we are doing now is just a dream of endless boring chores, dream that is so real that it gives us the perception that it is real.

Rene Descartes, a philosopher, held the idea that we could not differentiate between dreams and reality. So we could be constantly be dreaming and never know it. He also said that we could be making up our whole life. For example, the people, what they said, their history, their effect on us, the things they do, where we do it, what we choose, everything we make up. In fact, nothing is real, just a constant dream, authors of our own life.

There is no definite answer to this question. However, I did come up with few explanations that others might agreed on.

Firstly, the concept of "Eye of the Beholder" whereby perception determines reality personally.
Secondly, the concept of "General Consensus" whereby majority decides reality factually.
Thirdly, the concept of "State of the Mind" whereby by not knowing everything and knowing everything about nothing.. dreams are reality.
Lastly, the concept of "Ambition" whereby dreams can be reality.

There are other concepts that could relate to this, in fact there are plenty of concepts that we could relate with.

I guess what would really freak us out is when we apply the concept of general consensus, whereby majority says that we are living in reality. Hence, we are living in reality.
Imagine it the other way round, majority says we're living in a dream. Hence, we are living in a dream.
This could be a potential usage for cult leaders to convince people that reality is a dream and the only way to end the dream is to take a leap of faith, and that is to kill ourselves.. leading to mass suicide like the Jonestown suicides in Guyana and the Heaven's Gate mass suicide.

Some might think that, does this question really matter? 
Well to be exact, no, it doesn't matter. I made this blog post out of curiosity after watching the movie Inception, which really got me thinking. But one thing I learnt from the movie is that subconscious is  motivated by emotion and not reason.

Jason

Entry 12 : Arts of Joan Cornella

Little is known about Joan Cornella. The fact is, I only know that he a spanish illustrator and cartoonist.. And a pretty sick one too. Well sick in a good way of course!
Back few days ago, a friend of mine shared one of Joan's artworks on Facebook which really caught my attention. Hence, prompted me to view more of his artworks.

Here is one of his most recent artworks

Joan's artwork

There are few ways to analyze this piece of art. 

Based on some of the comments on Facebook, they interpret it as :
(Might not be logical as different people have a different point of view)

1. The guy in green suit saw the drug addict getting high. Then he saw the little girl's sadness as her balloon accidentally flew away. He decided to drug her so that she can get high to get the balloon.
(Okay, seriously, wtf.)

2. The girl lost her happiness. The green suit guy was her saviour. Giving her a new happiness, a new life.
(Doesn't make sense, but okay.)
Maybe the commenter was trying to say that getting high on drugs means happiness and the green suit guy saw the little girl's sadness and decided to drug her to make her happy.

3. Another commenter responded by saying "I think this is pretty obvious. People are shocked and horrified when others do illegal drugs but they are quick to drug up their children when they get upset for perfectly normal reasons".

Well, okay. Now, if I were to interpret this critically and in-depth.. I would say..

In my opinion, this describes society nowadays. 
The guy saw a man doing drugs, he saw the man happily, getting high.
When the guy offered him drugs, he ran away because its against social norms.
When it comes to seeing the little girl losing her balloon, he decided to drug her to make her "happy".
This artwork criticizes the hypocrisy of people. 
For example, telling people that drugs are bad but the fact is he/she do drugs.
or
A police officer carrying the duty of preventing crime and maintaining the public order.. But in fact, is a corrupted person accepting bribery, making quick money without really working hard for it.

Another way of how I see it is that people tend to spoil their kids without thinking about what is good for them.

How would you interpret this?

Entry 11 : The Stupid Philosophy

Who would have thought that being stupid was a good thing? Well, I am with stupid. 

You see, we're like balloons filled with hopes and dreams
However, over time.. a single sentence creeps into our lives and that is "Don't be stupid".

It's the crusher of possibility, the world's greatest deflator.

The world is full of smart people doing all kinds of smart things, well that's smart.
But, stupid is the relentless pursuit of a regret free life.

Smart may have the brains but stupid have the balls.
Smart recognizes things for how they are but stupid sees things as for how they could be.
Smart critiques but stupid creates.

The fact is, if we didn't have any stupid thoughts, we don't even have interesting thoughts at all.

Smart may have the plans.. but stupid have stories.
Smart may have the authority but stupid has one hell of a hangover.

It's not smart to take risks, it's stupid.

To be stupid is to be brave.
Stupid isn't afraid to fail, they know there are worse things than failure.
For example, like not even trying.

Smart had one good idea, and that idea was stupid.

You can't outsmart stupid, don't even try.
Only stupid can be truly brilliant!

Jason

Entry 10 : Lazy people are usually the smartest

Lazy often refers to something negative.. For example, not willing to help, slacker, unable to do a simple task, blah blah.. Well, I am just too lazy to mention out other examples.

I have to admit that I could be a little lazy sometimes. For instance, when my mum calls me to do the dishes or when someone asks me to give them a hand on carrying stuffs.

I don't think lazy is a bad thing. Let's look at this from a different perspective, maybe I didn't learn much from high school because I was too lazy to study and decided to cheat to get good grades. Well at least I wasn't too lazy to cheat right? =)

I know most parents or teachers who sees this will most probably be like "If you're cheating, you're cheating yourself boy, you won't learn anything being lazy."

Well, that's not true at all. If you're cheating, you're learning how to solve problems.

For example, if the problem is that you have to pass a test in order to get a good grade. You will probably spend hours studying and actually learn things. (That if you actually learnt something.)

But if you're lazy and find a faster, effective, and efficient way to pass your test, you're engaging in problem solving. I am not encouraging you guys to cheat, but if you're lazy and you cheated on an exam.. and got good grades, then you kinda deserve an A because you outsmarted the teachers.

But it also goes the other ways as well, if you cheated and you got caught cheating, you deserve an F. You deserve an F because you're not smart enough.. not smart enough to cheat the right way.

I believe that lazy people are usually the smartest people. Lazy people are the reason why we get to live life so much more comfortably today.

I am pretty sure long time ago, people called the guy who invented the dishwasher lazy as well.
"Wow, you're so lazy that you can't even wash the dishes?"

or what about the guy who invented washing machine
"Wow, you're so lazy that you can't even wash your own clothes?"

or the guy who invented car.
He was most probably like "I got tired of walking so I invented the car."

These are the lazy people who found a simpler way to complete a task. I don't know about you guys, but I find these guys absolutely brilliant.

There are other examples,

  1. Too lazy to light a simple candle, he invented light bulbs. Thomas Edison.
  2. Too lazy to drive, so they came up with a new way to get to places faster. The Wright Brothers invented airplanes.
  3. Girlfriend broke up with him, instead of chasing after her.. he stayed inside his dorm and created something that would make her come back to him. Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook.


So if someone calls you lazy whether its your teacher, friends, your mum or dad.
Don't get mad, don't get sad, be proud, say it out loud from the brightest cloud and even you one day will... erm..one day... I am too lazy to complete the sentence -_-

Entry 9 : Sand Art

Few weeks ago, I went to Sunway Pyramid before Chinese New Year to do some last minute shopping and I bumped into this guy who does sand bottles.. which I am not aware or heard the existence of such handicraft before. He is really talented with his craft, doing his craft with a large number of audiences looking at him. One thing that I noticed about him is that he is very precise and dedicated to his sand crafts.

Detailed Sand Bottles

I found out that there are many other arts and crafts that use sand as their main material, modeling sand into artistic form such as sand brushing, sand sculpture, sand painting and sand bottles. Here are some other arts using sand.

Kseniya Simonova's sand art
Lawrence Koh's sand art

I find sand art really amazing, especially the fact that they use sand as their main material... well something that I have been stepping on all the while when I am at the beach. #Truestorymuch
Despite stationary sand sculptures, sand could also be used to perform "Sand Animation" which is literally animation using sand.
I find this as a superb art animation for sand artists to bring audiences to a surreal and imaginative journey of sand art using merely only sand, music and light. Who would have thought of using sand to make animation? Genius indeed!

However one of the disadvantages of sand art that I would say is that such art are often temporary. In other words, we can't really preserve sand art. For example, sand sculptures are temporary because... eventually the sea waves or any other harsh conditions would destroy such sculptures. If and only if there is a way to preserve sand art, I believe that more people will know the existence of such a beautiful art.

Entry 8 : Religion & Race

While I was doing my assignments, boredom struck me with a question of
"Would the world be a more peaceful place if religion and race didn't exist?"

Well here is my point of view, if there is no religion and race, there wouldn't be such thing as racism, ethnocentrism nor religious war.

I wouldn't say that the world would be a peaceful place because violence has been and always will be part of the human nature while religion and race has been the cause of some of the most violent happenings.

Why is that? Let's take an example, the genocide of an estimated six million Jews in Europe during World War II by the infamous ruthless Hitler and his Nazi henchmen because of the dictator's hatred for the Jewish people which he regarded them as inferior human beings.

Secondly, some people will always find differences that distinguish them from others.. eventually leading to conflicts. For example, intelligence differences, body sizes and heights.

My third and final point would be, humans at its core, a natural beast as goes by a quote from Thomas Hobbes "Man in the state of nature seeks nothing but his own selfish pleasure, but such individualism naturally leads to a war in which every man's hand is against his neighbor".
A clear example that I would give for this is the need of survival, such as food and shelter.

To sum it all up, the world wouldn't be a peaceful place even with or without religion and race. Of course, we will never know what will happen if there is no religion nor race... but my guess is that we'll probably have World War III because of heights or body sizes!

Jason

Entry 7 : Wreck-It Ralph

Last year, I watched a movie called "Wreck-It Ralph" which tells a story of an arcade game character who rebels against his role as a villain and dreams to become a hero. It revolves around an arcade shop whereby at night, when the shop closes.. various arcade game characters can leave their respective in-game roles and are free to travel to other games.

Ralph in the middle, with his crew of friends

Ralph who is a villain in an arcade game called "Fix-It Felix" reveals his desire to be a hero instead of being a bad guy. This is because he is not acknowledged as part of the society as he is a villain. Hence, was never being loved and cared. I still remember when Ralph went to a support group for video game antagonists because he was depressed and bothered.
At the end of the discussion, all the video game antagonists took a pledge;

"I am bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. 
There's no one I'd rather be than me."

Troubled Ralph

Overall, I find this movie great because it tells a different perspective of a character, perspective of a villain instead of a hero. The movie had impacted my creativity in the sense that I should not look at things at just one point of view but in fact.. look at things from different point of views. Ralph is a villain, which we would normally engage in a perspective that villains are bad or evil..
Yet, Ralph was able to save the arcade world and became a hero. 
The movie taught me to look at things from many different views to get ideas. I will also get to expend my creativity from these views, combining them together to be different from others.

Cheers,
Jason

Entry 6 : Paper Craft

What is the first thing that comes into our mind when we talk about paper?
It is used for writing, printing, and drawing. In fact, we use paper commonly under these situations mentioned.
But I view paper more than that.. it is an object which could be something else, something more than just a paper. It could be used to create 3D models better known as paper craft. Making paper models are one of my favorite pastimes. Here are some of my works =)

Devilio & Stuffed Panda
Stacking paper craft
Listener, Observer, Speaker

We can easily get paper craft templates from the internet.
Doing the paper models requires a lot of time as I need to cut out the template from the paper.
Waiting for the glue to stick is another thing because I got to wait one side of the end to stick before I proceed to another side. What I find difficult about doing these models are that some parts that I got to glue are hard to reach. After some trial and error, I figured out that it would be good for me to use a toothpick to reach out those parts.. and it worked =)

As I said earlier, paper is more than for writing, printing and drawing. What I am trying to say here is that we always have the tendency to overlook things. For example, paper can be modeled into 3D objects. Another example would be old used tires, they are excellent planters when it comes to growing potatoes.. or you could just use them to make swings.
All it takes is a spice of creativity to change the common used things into something else.

Cheers,
Jason

Entry 5 : The Skewed Art

I still remember my Multimedia Tools lecturer saying "When you skew an image, it will become distorted, and distort is bad". Since then my perception towards skewed objects or images means bad... until I read about Jonty Hurwitz.
He designs amazing anamorphic sculptures that can only be seen in their own reflections. In fact, without the mirror cylinder, most of his pieces would look like rubbish. He first, scans a three-dimensional object, then uses Mathematics and a range of 3D software tools to design the final outcome. Here are some of his amazing artworks.

Frog reflection on the cylinder
Human face
Metallic red hand
(Pictures taken from Google)

What I find so amazing about his collection of artworks is that it contains algorithms as their main essence, combining the power of computer science and math together. Hence, forming these reflections on the cylinder.. which I find it creative.
According to research, the right brain is best at expressive and creative tasks while the left brain is considered to be adept at tasks that involve logic, language and analytical thinking. However, his artworks really make me wonder, does creativity only exist on the right side of the brain? Or it could be a combination of both your left and right side of the brain?
And my answer is, creativity comes from a fusion of both sides of our brain as portrayed by his artworks, a mixture of math, computer science and creativity!

Jason

Entry 4 : Levitation Photography

Many believe that levitation is not achievable where the human body rises up to the air by mystical forces and.. nobody did that successfully until now. However, I do believe that it is achievable using the right tools such as Photoshop, DSLR Camera and proper angle.. I am talking about "Levitation Photography".

It all started from Natsumi Hayashi's blog. (http://yowayowacamera.com)
I am impressed by the shots she took. Her work involves "Levitation Photography", which is basically shots that make the subject look as if they are floating.

Reaching for the water dispenser
Levitating in a restaurant
Levitating out from a train
(Pictures taken from Natsumi Hayashi's blog)

After viewing her blog, I was driven by this sudden urge to take pictures of myself levitating, but with no hope I failed miserably. It is undeniable that levitation photography is a difficult task to do if you're alone. You need to set the composition and focus manually, then press the shutter release(in timer mode) and run to the right position and jump. By doing so, you will be jumping over and over again just to get the right shot and angle.. not to mention, it takes a lot of patience.

Logically, levitation is physically impossible, we can only picture ourselves levitating within our minds.
However, with this new concept of photography we're able to transform our imagination into photographs which we could not have physically or possible accomplish in reality. 

This made me realize that everything is achievable if we use our imagination and believe in it as what Albert Einstein said "Logic will get you from A to Z, imagination will get you everywhere".

Entry 3 : Yamakasi and Parkour

During my semester break, I finally had the time to watch movies after god knows how long. One of the movies that I watched was "Yamakasi : Les samourais des temps modernes" following by the second installment "Yamakasi : Les Fils du vent". (Translation "Yamakasi : The modern-day samurai" and "Yamakasi : Sons of the Wind".)

(Picture taken from Google)

Yamakasi is founded by seven people who are parkour practitioners. Parkour better known as "Art of Displacement" is slightly similar to free running. Parkour focuses on making a quick and efficient getaway while free running focuses on freedom of movement, involving many tricks simply for their aesthetic value allowing you to move through environment in whatever way please you the most. Here is a video of David Belle, one of the founders of Yamakasi.


(Video taken from Youtube)

David Belle acknowledges the influence of Bruce Lee's thinking stating that "There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. A man must constantly exceed his level" which I find it pretty true due to the fact that humans give up easily thinking that it is impossible for us to outrun our limits.

Parkour, opened my eyes to what our body can do and the limits we can achieve. I am also amazed that we, humans, can move through obstacles quickly with ease. I find Parkour itself is a creative art involving overcoming and adapting to mental and emotional obstacles as well as physical barriers.

Entry 2 : Gangnam Style

Back a few months, the media world was buzzing about a Youtube video better known as "Gangnam Style" by a Korean artist named Psy. The video gain global recognition due to its unique horse dance and became the first video on Youtube to reach over one billion views. Almost everyone including me, was talking about the video turning it into an internet phenomenon. Here is the video of "Gangnam Style" by Psy.

(Video taken from Youtube)

Personally, I didn't like the video in the beginning as the dance was rather silly to follow. However after watching the video a few times, there was just something unique about the dance that makes me want to watch it again and dance to it. Once people get hold of the dance pattern, which is just five simple basic steps, he or she can literally dance to the music. Here are the five basic steps of the dance.

(Picture taken from Youtube)

I find Psy creative in a way that he managed to create a new form of dance which looks as if he was riding a horse, it is something new to the world as no one have danced that way before. Moreover, he is also inspiring because there are many parody of the video out there on the internet done by other people after watching Psy's "Gangnam Style".

It makes me realize that creativity comes in a variety of forms, and dance is one of it. It doesn't matter if you can't dance or you are really not good at it as the dance steps are pretty simple to follow.
Thus, I shall end my post with a quote, "If you hear a voice within you say,'You cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced" - Vincent Van Gogh

Entry 1 : Of Birthday Symbolism

Recently, I celebrated my friend's 20th birthday. It was indeed a fantastic party despite us having tons of assignments to cope with. While I was driving back in the middle of the night after the party, I suddenly thought of a question
"Why does the first slice of cake always go to the birthday boy/girl?"

Yes, I think a lot of random stuffs while I am driving. Well at least I am not driving with my brain dead after a few shots.
To be exact, there are no reasons at all on why the birthday boy/girl gets the first slice of cake. (I tried googling it)

If I were to give meaning to it, I would probably say that maybe it is the person's special day whereby he/she is getting older.. Hence treated like a Very Important Peanut Person on that particular day.
Secondly, the first piece of cake represents the greatest blessings for that special person. 
My third point might sound illogical but here goes.. Maybe it all started by a family who celebrated birthdays long long LONG time ago, whereby they celebrated it with cakes and the first slice goes to the special person. Then the whole town follows, and soon.. the country. Hence, the tradition continues till now.

If I were to celebrate my birthday,I would give a new meaning to this tradition. Probably the opposite of what people usually do.
I would give the first slice of cake to anyone who attends my birthday on that day and take the last slice of cake for myself. 
Now why is that?
I believe in receiving when we're giving as what St. Francis of Assisi once said "For it is in giving that we receive". 
Secondly, it shows that we care for others rather than ourselves
Lastly, it is also a sense of respect which further supports my second point.

To conclude this, we often follow what others are doing.. without knowing, without questioning.. and sometimes, without meaning or purpose. I believe that people should give their own opinion on certain things, a new purpose, a new meaning.

Jason

Semester Break Part 2

Hmm.. now where was I? Ahhh.. yes. I even spent some quality time with my family. My sis came back from Shanghai for a week or so, then we went to Malacca for a food frenzy day trip.
Our first stop was Dim Sum Garden Restaurant. Some of the Dim Sum are nice, especially those with unique flavors such as Cheese Shumai and Curry Shumai. Other than that, the rest of the Dim Sum are below average. The Dim Sum wrapped in rice flour are too thick.

Cheese Shumai
Homemade Tau Fu
The rest of the food that we ate there.

After Dim Sum, we went to Jonker Street and some other places. I brought my camera along cause I hardly use it due to uni, don't want it to collect dust either. Here are some few shots that I took in Malacca.

Because time is everything.
Hardly see these anymore.
Took this in Bukit St. Paul
Where the light doesn't shine.
Ding Ding Tong Seller

I must say that I got some pretty decent shots for a beginner.*Self praise much*
After walking around, we ate Durian Cendol and some other kuih-muih.
Then it was..... Satay Celup time!

Makan la, apa lagi!
Sixty cents for a stick :)

I forgot the exact location of the Satay Celup store, but what I do know is that I ate quite a number of sticks.    After eating Satay Celup, we went to our last stop which was Fatman Popiah at Jalan Bunga Raya.

Fatman Popiah@Jalan Bunga Raya

and hence, ends my Malacca day trip. There are other food that I did not mentioned. Cause I don't wanna sound like a badass eater. Oh yea, Malacca used to be my hometown, or it wasn't o_O Not sure about it lols. I love how my grandma used to be around, we would just head down to Malacca and stay one night at her flat. Heh.. I guess, things change over time.

Semester Break Part 1

Heck, I am using up more energy than usual during my sem break. Anyway, I am currently enjoying my break. The first thing I did was to have fun with my friends up in Genting Highlands. It was a three days and two nights trip... and all I gotta say is that the trip was superb. We had barbecue in an open car park, and I did not bring my sweater and it was freezing cold, thanks to the wind. Overall, the barbecue was fine, we had a "professional charcoal burner" in our gang... and a bunch of naturally professional eaters. (All of us)

On the last day, we went to strawberry farm and had strawberry chocolate drink and strawberry coffee... and well that's about it.

Dexter's facial expression, priceless.
All of us -_-

I even got a chance to meet up with Sushi(Shuwei) of UTAR Kamparian in Midvalley cause she wanted to pass Chervie the Mac cover that they bought online. Heh, she used to be in our Foundation batch before degree separated all of us. She gave us crafted toilet rolls to arrange our cables and wires. *tears of joy* Thanks Sushi. :)

She made this, with my name on it! :)

Coincidentally, Fashion Fast Forward which consist of Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge and Dorothy Perkins was having a one day sales for members and it just so happened that Sushi was a member. Therefore, we took turns to go in just for the goodie bags. I am so sorry that we exploited this just for the goodie bags. =X
As what Sushi said, "Goodie bags stealers"
Baby, Sushi and Me :)
Promoting Juice Works because it is pure fresh juice.
Sushi younger sister's bracelet. Golden Spiky Spike. 

The goodie bags contained accessories(randomly given) and vouchers and more vouchers.
I guess, I'll end it here and continue part two of my Semester Break in a new post.
Getting lazy and tired.
Till then! :)

Of dusty and neglected Miss Blog

Aha! I remembered my password... I mean, hello there! Its been a while indeed. I am so sorry for not updating you Miss Blog. Therefore, you shall be updated! Oh yea, have I told you how pretty you are Miss Blog? I shall feed you with my random stories, with pictures... with.. crab and rubbish and crap and rubber..? o_O
Anyway, what have I been doing lately?

 
Fuck yea,  I was having my exam. Nuff said.
...and ate a lot of Oreo, cause I love them.
Then everyone was hoo-ha-ing about Gangnam Style.
Baby bought me this note book in Bookfest.
She even bought me a pencil case which I decided to give life to it by adding a pair of eyes.
and of course! We share a lot of love too.. by acting retard and stupid.
My Samsung S3 casing just arrived today! Ajajaja

And I am going to Genting Highlands tomorrow! Because I need to have fun, fun is a must. Because... I need to chill, chill is a must too. Currently, life's good.. The air is fresh and the roses were red. A pure taste of temporary stress-free until my semester break is over.

Till then Miss Blog! I'll try to update you as frequent as possible!
Life's good ;)

Samsung Galaxy S2 and S3

Last week, my two awesome sisters bought me a new phone which is the Samsung Galaxy S3, my... first smartphone. ( I know I am outdated thank you. ) Heh, like finally a phone that is smarter than me =X

Anyway, I have no idea how a smartphone works. Therefore I am like "(o.O)" and "(O.o)". Most probably the most clueless guy ever now. I guess.. I just need a little time to play around with it. My mum even bought Samsung Galaxy S2 for herself on that day, sudden spending spree.

Samsung Galaxy S3
My mum's Samsung Galaxy S2
Samsung Duo ;)
My Samsung Galaxy S3 is bigger than my mum's phone ;D
Overall, I think Samsung Galaxy S3 is pretty neat and cool. Especially the direct call feature, whereby you can just call without dialing up numbers, going though call logs and contacts. All you need to do is lift up your phone to your ear to call the person you are text-ing. Heh, this feature is totally for me.. I am a lazy pig.

One of their unique features is the S Voice, which is similar to Apple's iPhone 4S whereby you can actually talk to your phone, command it to wake up, snooze your alarm, check the current weather and many more.

All I gotta say is, it depends on each individual preference on which phone to buy and whether to upgrade your Samsung Galaxy S2 to the latest Samsung Galaxy S3

Dexter's Early Birthday Celebration!

Celebrated one of my best pal's birthday today, gooosh.. the surprise plan failed miserably.. like seriously. Of course, there was no Plan B cause we're all busy rushing for assignments, it is a hectic week for many of us as we have deadlines to be met.
My foundation monkeys attended his birthday party too heh.. Man, how I miss those days of going crazy during foundation, running around, singing and shouting around, doing all sort of crazy shit stuffs that we can do during our free time

Celebrated his birthday in McDonald, I guess that's the only place where we can gather conveniently. Then... things got messy when we started playing around with the birthday cake. What's a birthday without "caking" someone's face? =D

And to make things worse, I was wearing white. So yea.. you'll get it from here. Hopefully.

Dexter the birthday boy, look how happy he is.

The mess we created, it was far worse than this..
My cute lil' princess
Talking about how catastrophe the messy was, there was cake all over the floor till the staff have to clean it up.. and as usual I poker face throughout the whole cleaning up thingy. I sincerely apologize for the mess we have caused.
Heh, I guess I'll end it here. 
Once again, 
Happy Birthday Datuk Dexter Liu!

Cheers,
Jason
