MCR coming to KL!!

My Chemical Romance, the hottest rock band at the moment is coming to KL for a concert!! Yes, the Black Parade has arrived. Confirmed. As reported by The Star a few days ago.

Surely, this had got something to do with the Merdeka celebration. I mean, the organisers were geniuses. They might not know it yet, but this will become an important milestone in our nation's history, yes, even more significant than sending a space tourist to, well, space.

Ok Ok I know I am exaggerating a bit. But you certainly understand my excitement, no? Erm...what do you mean you have never heard of them?

But wait, if a concert by Gwen Stafani managed to drew so much controversies. Imagine what will happen when a band like MCR comes to town. White face make up, black mascara, songs about dying and death. I am sure our moral guardians will be less than pleased.

But a quick check on the date revealed that it will be held on the 9th December. *insert profanities*. More details here

I am still on vacation during that time *sob*

Hopefully, it would be delayed.....*fingers crossed*

An Epic Victory

Warning : The post below is written in Dota-speak. Please refrain from scrolling if you are allergic to grown men discussing about computer games & prone to eye rolling.

Dota - the best thing since sliced bread

Yesterday night, was my friend's, CK last night in KL before going back to UTM. Therefore, I decided to cook up some impromptu sending off for him. And yes, that usually means we will go and play Dota.

Thus, the 3 of us : me, CK & Kenny went to tbun for some senseless killings.

The 1st game was not worth mentioning. We lost. Again. I think I am starting to get used to that feeling. It's not our fault of course. It's a just something we named : The Curse Of Teoh!

For the 2nd game we randomed :
Magnataur ( me ), Morphling ( Kenny ), Broodmother ( CK ), Spectre & Weaver

The other team got :
Puck, Twin head dragon, Dragon night, Lone druid & Naga

Not too bad right? Me think the same too.

But that was quickly forgotten early into the game. Me & CK was in the same upper lane. Pretty soon, CK was getting rape like an AV star. And I didn't fair any better either. Kenny said that when I manage to get the blink dagger & Battle Fury, we will start owning. Emm..okay

But farming isn't easy when u always got killed. Luckily, Kenny & the weaver managed to get some respectable items. Yet, by the time I had enough money to buy those 2 stuff with my hard earned money, our base look a lot like KLIA.

The upper & middle base were gone. Even the 2 towers guarding the throne were gone. I was losing hope. Fast.

But wait, Kenny & the weaver still insisted we can win. WTF??

Naturally, our opponents started pushing the final lane. With my newly acquired item, I confidently blink into the middle of their heroes, ulti & started whacking. I was killed in no time. My pessimism reached an all time low after that.

But, Kenny & the weaver defended like hell & even managed to kill. Miraculously, our only tower remained intact even after 30 minutes of their pushing. Huh?

At that point I was just playing along. Surely, I do not want to be known as a leaver, right? Then, the turning point came when the weaver gave me another Battle Fury. 2 Battle Furies is like joining skim cepat kaya. Money won't stop flowing.

After I got my heart, we started pushing. Firstly, we destroyed their middle lane. Then their lower lane. When we went up for the final lane, we smelled victory for the 1st time. How ironic.

We won that game against all odds! And in the process, I think we made 5 men quit playing Dota.

After 82 minutes we were spent. I heaved a huge sigh of relief. Then, I started wondering. How the heck did we managed to pulled that off?

I spun around & the answer became obvious.......

Teoh was not around. ^-^

The Big 21

A new blog. A fresh start.
Blogging on Friendster just doesn't cut it for me anymore.
That's why I am starting my new blog, albeit belatedly today. And to kick things off, my 1st post is gonna be about my 21st birthday (What do you expect??)

To those who were unenlightened yet, my birthday falls on last Wednesday ( 10th October, Yup 10-10 better jot that down in your diary now ). This year my birthday gained added significance because I am turning 21. Well, It was suppose to be a very symbolic moment, to certain people at least. To me, it meant that during my next trip to Genting, I won't be spending it in the theme park *wink*

I had an early birthday bash courtesy of my hometown friends on Sunday. And it is the usual bunch, my very close friends : Kenny, Desmond, Teoh, Ong+GF and me with Rachel. We went to a very pleasant restaurant, the San Francisco Pizza for dinner. It is not very often that the few of us get the chance to enjoy our meal together though. Everybody seems so busy nowadays ( Yes, that means you tbun zai ^-^).

We had a simple dinner, ordered 2 large pizzas. It was hardly enough for the all of us. Each of us just man
aged 2 thin slices max ^-^. Not full but still we had a good time. And did I mentioned I got a nice t-shirt from them as well? Seriously dude, those guys have got taste. Just like the birthday boy ( Sorry, Can't help myself )

On Tuesday night, I celebrated with Rachel at Station 1 in Pandan Indah after she finished work. It was very sweet of her to bake a cake for me even though she was tired from work. Before that I receive a nice bag as gift from her. Love that present as well. We enjoyed a hearty Western meal, I had lamb chop, she had steak. Both were surprisingly tasty.

After the main meal, Rachel was still
hungry for some snacks & we ordered some escargot ( Yup. French snails ). Some of you might cringe at that, but it tasted pretty good I must say. The picture below doesn't do any justice to its deliciousness ^-^

Cute little escargots

Please do not try this at home

Lip smackingly good

Later that night 4 of my UKM friends were crazy enough to come find me in Wangsa Maju. They : Dai Lou, Ah Chuan & Ah Muk made the long journey & arrived here past 12am. So, being the gracious & grateful host that I am, I brought them to Steven's Corner. Apparently, the food wasn't that good when compared to Al-fariz according to Ah Muk. That guy is really addicted to Al-fariz stuff. We also ate the cake Rachel made there. It was real tasty & chocolaty, it tasted even better when frozen. After sending Rachel back, the others come to my house for some chatting. Even though Dai Lou is there we didn't gamble though.

To wrap things up, I had a birthday dinner with my family on Wednesday night, this time at a more conventional pizza joint, Pizza Hut. This of course is an annual affair. Well, there is nothing like a simple & cozy dinner to e
nd things.

At the end of this super long post, I must thank all those who celebrated my birthday with me as well as all those well wishers. Appreciate it *sob* My family, my gang here in Wangsa Maju, my friends at my second home, UKM & of course the main organiser, Rachel.

And the vicious cycle continues next year.....
