This is the only month where we can tweets or updates FB status with 'tgif'...everyday. And the only month where we can get February the 13th on the year 2013th. Yes, triskaidekaphobia-ed everything. If only we can get 31 days in February, we'll have a nice 31022013. Ok it settled, March the 3rd will be 31st February.
Wait, I think I've done 'February of Horror' some time ago.
Also today is my 3rd day having flu. According to my Chinese astrology reading, year of the Water Snake doesn't goes well with my zodiac. So here, I'm gonna stop and get my rest.
And this is how I'm wishing you all a very Happy Chinese New Year of the Water Snake. (CNY-themed photo will be uploaded soon, so stay tuned).
Alright I've made a few changes to my blog layout. The first is to disable Mobile template that enable viewer to view this page in simple and adjusted to their mobile screen. I liked it but since I'm using tab to browse/blog, I found it very annoying to re-type the blog address so that my iPad can view it with normal desktop template. For example, if I opened my blog on this device, it goes http://www.mellsilver.com/?m=1 which is mobile template. To view it on it's original template, I have to put 0 on the last letter - http://www.mellsilver.com/?m=0. (That ?m= probably means mobile version while 0 means off and 1 is on). Good thing there were setting to turn it off in blogger.com (or also to change to another nice mobile template).
Another thing is, I've put a photo header on this blog. It took me some time because I didn't know the size of my header. Its a trial and error. After that, I combined two different photos, so there's a Godzilla with Mt. Kinabalu on the background. Finally, I'd make it gradient-ly transparent. Nothing much actually. I did this just now in the office. Probably I have too much time. Now, I have something to blog on. Thank you. And Happy New Year 2013.
(Oh I almost forgot: I've put Instagram icon below the header, but mine is private, so feel free to request).
We used to create and sings our own '12 Days of Christmas' in Form 4. I've forgotten the rest of the lyrics but I remember when we goes 'Fiiiveeeee, keropok Golden Riiiings...' and of course keropok Golden Rings were famous during our time. The idea was T. Rizal B's, and he used to changed every lyrics he knows to something else. Or just changed the song titles. I'm not sure the originality of the titles like 'Under the Bo'bot', 'Tie a Yellow Ribbon on the Lolok Tree' or some other malicious sounding song titles but I guessed every teenagers or school boys did this in their time.
Okay back to the present time. If the 1st day of Christmas is on the 25th Dec, I guessed the 5th day is on the 29th. So next year's 5th day of Christmas sa mo golden ring la...oh wait...lama juga. Ahahaha. Anyway congratulations to my friend, the kakak of our life (hahahaha) for her engagement today 30th Dec 2012. And after for so long, I've finally reunited with the original 'pixelayerions' and also the rest of the teams. I guessed, 2012 is not so bad at all. No, wait, I think it's the best...(if only the government let me wrote the year as 0000 After Apocalypse). So, congratulation again, Girl.
It's the Second Day of the Year 0000 After Apocalypse. I don't remember what happen on the last day of 21st December. I guessed everything has been reset.
But I was wrong. The human mind might has been reset but the Earth still remember what we have done to it. Yes, there.. it keep telling me.."reredrum htrae"...whatever that mean.
Anyway, during one of my idle 'sick-bed' moment (I didn't go hunting Unicorn, apparently they will hunt you back if they manage to destroy the dimensions divider), I was thinking what cool super-power that haven't being 'ínvented' yet. So I go with Gravity Canceller. Like the name suggest, it will cancel or remove gravity from one person or one object by pointing at them. What was the effect? Gravity-canceller will nullify one's gravity from earth; and send him flying away to the space. Imagine if you at the equator and the earth spinning at about 1600 kilometers per hour, imagine if the 'glue' that holds you to earth doesn't work... okay imagine you spin a mud-covered soccer ball on the floor and see the mud go flying to all direction. That's how the Gravity Canceller work. But this power has weak point. It can't be use at the North or South Pole. You can try it but it will only make the object bounce a few centimeters or the person you targetting at will only feel slightly dizzy. Now good luck at that.
In another related topic, why was when we were little, we can spin round and around and around and around in axis without feeling dizzy? I remember I can go on faster and faster till I created a black hole and suck everything from the earth and the scientist and all that. But nowadays, make one sudden complete 360 turn can make me want to scream and hug the wall and demand the world to stop spinning.
Again in another maybe-related topic, I know the scientist. He is a Coldplay singing about his dead girlfriend while walking backward.
One of earthlings...I mean human abilities, is natural healing power. Not that X-Man kinda power or dark-arts kind of ability. It just our body's self defence against diseases. I was, since were little, didn't like taking medication even when I got fever. Most of the time I just let myself heal by time (and I even goes telling my friends that the Panadol they were taking is just tepung with flavour). It is not that I don't believe in modern medication, it just when I took paracetamol, it don't have effect on me.
But not until in my early 30s (that's a few years ago), did paracetamol finally have effect on me. I guessed that I've used up all my natural healing ability and have to depend on modern medications. It started with a flu and fever a few years ago, which really horrible and painful that I decided to take a strong pain reliever (Panadeine), which the name suggest, a paracetamol + codeine. It was a happy trip.. I mean it really have effect on me that in just a few minutes after taking that medicine, I'd be hunting unicorns. But since I knew the side-effect of codeine, I only take Panadeine when really, really-really need it. When I took it, in a few minutes I fell asleep. (I brought panadeine during my recent Kinabalu climb and expecting to fall asleep and tumbling down the mountain after taking it. It didn't).
Nowadays, I just take paracetamol when fever/pain/headache. Compares to during my teen years and the twenties, now I can felt the effect immediately. I guess that before this, I strongly believe in my self-healing and let my antibody repel even the medicines that I took. So, goodbye antigen and thank you for taking care of me for so long. If any of you still inside of me, please multiply. No matter how fun it is to hunt unicorns and smashing rainbows, I still prefer natural self-healing.
The last time all the planets were aligned, the Titans were unleashed.
Welcome back, Titans.
When I started going to school in 1985-86-87, (earlier than that I went to Chinese kindergarten but I don't have any good memory or close friend) everyday was filled with the story of magic, fairy tales, myths and religious story. But the best of all were the made-up stories that getting better and better each time we add another lies elements or make-believe facts.
One such story that were famous during my time was the end of the world (kiamat). A friend told me that in the future, the world is going back to black and white. What he mean was, the world is colourless, as in the old movie that he saw. What he didn't know at that time, (and I actually knew because I already read a lot) that the world was in black and white as in the old films because the technologies haven't been able to produce coloured image and/or Colour TV was expensive during our time.
And he said that is the sign the world is going to an end.
Strangely enough, after too much watching post-apocalypse war movie, playing war-themed games and following scientific research journals, I think it is possible the world to be in black and white due to the blocking of the sun, nucklear fallout, volcanic ash and dust.
I'm not gonna say that the world is not/going to ends or this entry is about the world ends. What I wanna share is, about the people who seemingly predicted the future. Like this kid (hey I'm a kid too that time) who said people are going back to black and white in the future. Who have thought that this is really true. Look at most of the photos on your FB friends, almost everyone have their photos in black and white. What, did colour has lost its value? Oh wait mine also almost all in black in white.
We also talked about when the world ends, dunia jadi terbalik (the world turned upside down). How can the world turned upside down when it is round? Or the Sun rises in the West? This is actually has been predicted by people long time ago. How can they know? Then when we DO have the technologies to predict earth's movement, and have the technologies to learn about mostly everything about our earth, it is really possible for the world to turned upside down - in a sense of compass points. The world's magnetic poles has changed from north to south vice versa since millions of years ago. When our magnetic poles switch location again later, the Sun is, literally - in a compass points, do really going to rises in the West.
And when the magnetic field changes, whether its going stronger or weaker, the earth going to be vulnerable by all the cosmic forces out there. So good luck Earth People.
