sweet couple

this is a photo from one of the gadget website that is covering the CES (consumer electronic show) in las vegas.  below shows (i assume) 2 gadget reporters having an official massage.  think they are a couple.  aren’t they sweet.  can’t see the face but i assume they are both males (adam and mark)

military break

was let out for the weekend.  the last few days was totally boring. sleeping in the bunk for like 5 hrs a day during the day time. training was less than 2 hrs a day and mostly very quick revision.

the tough part should be next week.  hoping it is not going to be as tough as previous years.  4 days of in field exercise.  sure hope it burns some of the calories i have been piling on while serving my military service the last few days.

Quiet Time …. “Singapore’s best gay novel”?

found this review of the book launch on Fridae’s website. might just buy it and read it during my vacation to manila after my reservist.  for those not familiar, the author wrote Singapore’s first gay novel “Peculiar Chris” 17 years ago (wow how time flies).  i never read the book, since at that age i was more keen on reading erotica. now being older and wiser, i guess is time i read some serious literature.

the author (isnt he cute) wrote a second book which was a follow up on Peculiar Chris.  this is his third book. after i have read it, i will update here with my review.  in the mean time you can read the review on fridae website at the link here.

book spoiler alert … the review exposes some of the themes in the book … i extract some of it here below after the link.

still procrastinating …

well … i have been doing stuff. did jogging on 1, 3 and 4 Jan.  a bit of gym, some shopping, some socializing (minimal … am getting more anti-social as i grow older) and went to HortPark and Marina Barrage to take photos.  had lots of food … i guess as a start to 2009, not too bad from the have fun perspective.  

about time i get some work done though and continue on my exercise and less food.

was originally planning on updating this blog to a newer look but i guess that is now postponed.

Happy New Year 2009 … fighting fit

first post of the year.  just ran 7km this morning to welcome the new year.  something i learnt from my ex, to start off well. one of my new year resolution is to hit 15% or below body fat.  cant remember if it was the same resolution last year.  but am feeling more positive (the after exercise adrenaline speaking) that i can reach that goal this year.  so to help me along … more photos for inspiration to come.

12,911 days old today

almost 13,000 days on earth (calculate yours) and i not quite sure what i have done or achieved.  at least not played or enjoyed and experienced enough i think. then again, i do a lot of it in my fantasy land.

started to rediscover facebook again today.  it is actually very much like a glass house.  no privacy at all.  all your friends see what you do online with facebook.  scary.

will be going up to KL today with bil (bro in law). will be in the car while he drives.  will be mostly work, jogging, eating and soaking in the tub in cyberia. hope it wont be too stressful a trip.

feeling old

was with some friends just now and they were showing me photos of their parties the last few days.  gosh, it was mostly of hot young guys without shirts.  and i mean young like early to mid 20s.  some still in university and others already starting their professional career.  when i look at the pics, i just cant help but feel so old. i cant imagine myself enjoying in the parties like those.  not that i was ever a party animal. but now with my age, i prefer small groups, just quiet wine sipping at someone’s house may be watching tv, playing taboo.

weirdest movie sequel

i must say this is the weirdest movie sequel idea i ever heard.  cant wait to see it. 

so titanic the movie was based on historical events.  it has the whole history epic make up.  then they do a sequel where they find Jack (leonado) frozen undersea.  got him up, reanimated him, as in bring him back to life.  he escaped and is caught in the “future” where he finds Rose already dead.

is like from historical epic, to sci-fi triller.  and it is staring leonado as well.  i actually think leonado is a very capable and good actor.  so no way is this a B grade ripe off.

try looking for the triller and check it out.

six packs on obama

not a good pic to judge his looks, but just focusing on the abs … isnt that 6 packs?

but still with a bit of love handle?  hmmmm ok i am going no where trying to achieve my 6 packs.  beginning to feel like a fantasy.

first day of holiday …. and other musing

recently i was addicted to secondlife.  for those unfamiliar secondlife is a virtual world environment where you create yourself as an avatar and interact with others.  it is like an advance chatting and socializing in a WOW environment without the gaming objectives.  

but the reason why i was addicted, is the same as why i used to be addicted to reading online erotic stories and chatting.  it is a sordid affair.  you cannot believe the amount of sex you can have in secondlife and you create the environment, so it is one step closer than text fantasizing.  the visual element is very addictive.

oh and yes i am the female in the picture.  that is the whole idea of secondlife … to be able to lead the life that you are not in real life.

any case soon after my labido wane off, i started to take interest in the secondlife (SL) environment.  for instance you can create furniture, cloths, cars and practically anything in a virtual world.  couple with that, secondlife has a very very development financial system.  you buy linden dollars (secondlife currency) with real money and you get to spend it in SL.  There is even an site to track the black market exchange rate of SL to USD which fluctuates with demand.

what this interested me is

  1. ability to create stuff.  that has always been an interest for me.  reason why i like programming is because every program is like a creation.
  2. money.  have never been a very money oriented person.  guess i was always a little boy mentality.  but i might finally be growing up a bit with regards to realizing i do need so stable income and savings/investment in order for me to retire early or not be worried about my old age. and of course to enjoy life now, my monthly expenses is not low either.
so i started thinking i might create some simple stuff and may be start selling it in SL. of course it will take some time.  but i guess it will be fun and can be a hobby.
then this morning i was reading an article online how an iphone application that plays farting sound is now the top selling application on iphone at USD 0.99 per download. the number of downloads slowly climbed from 200 to 13,000 a day on 22 Dec 08.  that is like average of USD 800 in one day as apple takes 30%.  WOW! a farting sound application!
ok i am now downloading the iphone SDK and bunch of development resources.  but you cant imagine the process of getting an iphone app to run and to be on the apple store.  the process is so tedious, it makes me wonder why are the so much crap still on the app store.
well i was thinking why no do it for jailbreak phone.  then again, i wont be able to sell it at USD0.99 a pop.
oh well is xmas eve and the start of my one month official off from my official work.  i say official because i still my side line programming to catch up on and 2 weeks of military service.  so no, it is not 1 whole month of idling.
but may be i will get around to updating this blog with new design and updating the version.
happy holidays everyone.

challenging times … to keeping fit

is the holiday seasons again. i think this is the first time i have a long break of a month from my day job. too bad i still have my side line to catch up with and 2 weeks of military service.

while the holiday season is a challenging time for keeping the body weight down, this year might not be that bad as i am likely to be in cyberia or military and will likely avoid most party since bf is not around.

oh by the way is bf’s birthday today.  happy birthday.

no photo evidence of my half marathon

obvious that is not me in the photo.  they keep sending me emails about the marathon photo but when i search online they have no photos of me.  so as good as no photo evidence i completed the 21km in my personal record timings.  oh well at least i know.

next year i will target to pose for the cameras and wave.  note to myself, make sure i have pair of photogenic sunglasses on.
