About

Hey guys…

Welcome to my humble journal.

Though I would say that this journal is for my band, but then the original author (me) has decided to make it a complete journal of himself AND the band.

Let me begin by introducing more about myself.

I am a polytechnic student graduate residing in a small island called Singapore. If you don’t know where it is, it’s a little red dot off the equator, near the southern part of West Malaysia. I have a Diploma in IT, majoring in Enterprise Computing. My expertise is mainly Java programming, be it Swing applications, jsp applications and even java mobile applications. I spent my 3.5 years inside polytechnic learning only how to use Java programming. I have other skills learning in polytechnic such as using Macromedia Dreamweaver (now it’s Adobe), Macromedia Fireworks and Macromedia Flash. Other skills also include html, CSS, javascript and web designing. But I hate web designs now, because the younger generations are better at that. I mainly use what I learn into everyday uses like what you might find in my journal entries.

I have a high level of experience in using Windows XP. Mainly because, I only use Windows XP when I’m at school, home, and even during my NS period. I enjoyed using programs made for Windows XP, and find out new ways on how to use the program, suited for my needs.

I also have a high level of experience in combating viruses, spywares, adwares and whatever-wares that’s lurking out in the internet. Though I mainly rely on sources I found throughout the internet to combat such problems. Internet nowadays is not a safe place to be no matter how high your computer security can be. I have friends who’d look for me whenever they encounter any problems whenever they are using Windows XP.

I am also an avid musician who enjoys listening to metalcore and hardcore. I enjoy aggressive music because it makes me headbang automatically and I can just dive into the music I listen to. Especially songs with synchopated riffings like Lamb Of God, Meshuggah etc, because I enjoy listening to the distorted sound of the electric guitar.

I have been playing the guitar since I was 10 years old, but back then, I only used my thumb to play “twinkle twinkle little star” tune. I know nuts about chords and frets, and I only watched my elder brother rocking in the house. But based on experience, my real guitar playing starts when I’m 16 years old (in 2000), when I wanted to learn to impress. Because at that time, I was the kind of boy who people wouldn’t want to look at. Especially if you got nothing to show. So I picked up guitar playing as a hobby at first. It later become an interest and lastly it becomes my soul. I have not stopped playing guitar ever since.

In my band, I am the guitarist. We have 2 guitarist, and we don’t label who’s the rhythm and who’s the lead. Because both of us plays individually. We enjoyed playing in the public like performing in gigs or trying our luck in competitions. I have always dreamed on playing for the Baybeats, which is held annually at the Esplanade. I hope my music career will show me a path where I can find satisfaction in my years of guitar playing.

I’m also currently attached to my lovely girlfriend. We met with the power of Internet. I have always wanted someone who I’ll enjoy talking to everyday. I never get bored of her. She always accuses me of talking to other girls, which I do, but most of them are usually my poly friends. Other than them, I have 2 other girl friends whom I knew the same period I knew my girlfriend. Am I wrong to have friends? But I can understand her jealousy, because she’s afraid she might lose me if she didn’t enforce the jealousy in her. But no matter what, I won’t try to cheat on her. In the first place, I looked like a nobody but she chooses me. That’s why I’d rather not leave her. Then I really become a nobody.

That’s about it. Enjoy the rest of the contents in here.

Me wearing hood

And that is me! Well, back then when I was not as heavy as I am now… Oh btw, this nice sweater have been donated by me to a friend in NS.

My mask

The man behind the mask.

I design my own mask. If I ever see another replica of the mask anywhere, I’ll make sure I send you to court. Even if I don’t have the patent but you’re infringing intellectual property. And it’s punishable by law.

The band uses masks whenever we perform; supposedly to hide our identity. And honestly, the mask makes us feel more confident when we’re on stage and thus we become more energetic to perform.

Us

My sweetheart and me.

This photo was taken while we were on our way to IKEA. I like my hairstyle in this photo.

Diyanah

This is my lovely cute little niece.

She was still a newborn, and all she does is sleep, eat and cry.

1 year old Diyanah

The 1-year-old niece. She has grown to almost 15kg!

Well that’s about it. Hope you’ve learnt a few things about me. Take care! And don’t take drugs… 🙂
