2006 New Year Resolutions

2006 alvinology

Found them listed on my old blog. Let’s see how I have fared, close to two years later (I did not make any New Year resolutions in 2007 because I knew I will probably not be able to keep them).

1. Pass my IPPT (nope, nowhere close! In fact, I even had to go for remedial training twice)
2. Lose at least 5kg (nope, I think I gained 5kg instead)
3. Finish my film project The Party (nope, I have practically stopped making short films)
4. Set up webcomic Peeps (nope, I have also practically stopped drawing)
5. Master Flash (nope, I gave up on pursuing web design as a career)
6. Set up personal portfolio website (ok lah, I maintain two blogs now which are updated daily – counted? Can lah!)
7. Get a job, find my direction (yup, happily working in the web industry :))
8. Forget all the unhappy things (yup, can say I already done that)
9. Win at least one major design competition/award (nope, don’t even dare think about it anymore)
10. Be happy! (yup, I am now, thank you!)

Achieved 4/10. I need to try harder next time I list down another set of resolutions. Then again, I changed my career path lah. Hence a lot of the resolutions I made in 2006 are no longer that relevant.

Win a Sony Ericsson K810i!

Something larger than STOMP is coming up!

I don’t know what is it exactly yet, but it’s Chinese, it’s sensational, and it’s FUN!!!

http://www.omy.sg prelaunched their site today with a damn cool teaser game that got me wasting about half an hour in the office. When they have 10 Sony Ericsson (my fave handphone brand!!) mobile handsets to give away and I need a new handphone, what’s a furtive half an hour of pretending to look busy?

Besides, out of the 10 mobile handsets, the top two prizes are the Sony Ericsson K810i, a phone I’ve been eyeing for two months now!!! It retails at $598; $398 for two-year contract with Singtel (just in case you were wondering why I didn’t just fork out the money to BUY it.)

How to play: You got thirty seconds (thereabouts) to snap as many newsworthy pictures as you can with your fake K810i. Before your battery runs out, you have to send the shots to 75858. More details can be found on http://www.omy.sg.

Here are some screenshots of the game:

Zap zap zap!

Sending in shots

Apparently something is going to happen on 25 Sept!

Anyways, I don’t understand how come the top scorers can get 1800 points lorh. Possible meh? Must leave comment and let me know what you think k?

Top Ten Body Modification Freaks

crazy woman

giant ears

skeleton

leopard man

Someone compiled a list of the top ten freaks in the world obsessed with body modifications. Not for the faint-hearted. Please do not click this link if you are offended by such stuff.

Why do people do such things to themselves?

Some people are born genetically deformed. These people choose to purposely deform themselves. Ironic.

For me, I must admit I am one of those geeks who enjoy gawking at these folks. I don’t support their actions, neither do I condemn them. It’s their lives and their choices.

Even if I don’t understand why.
