I finally decided to brush off the dust that was gathering on the blog and post an update!

2 new covers here for you guys.

made in the toilet of my apartment while I was studying in Cardiff.

introducing the illegal squatters in my apartment: Siva, Chris and Azrul.

Hapus Aku by Nidji

Chris came down from Ipoh to visit me in KL and so I couldn't let it go to waste and therefore, a new cover was born!

The Bench.

Do you remember the time we spent, sitting on the bench? Do you remember? Do you?
All the hours that we spent, talking about nothing, nothing at all.
Do you remember all the jokes, the things that made us laugh like a bunch of retards out of control?
So do you really remember all these things? Do you really? Do you?

One day will you look back? Remember all the fun we had? or will you just forget about me?
will you just forget about me?
cause I won't. I won't. I won't.

and as the years pass, as you look out of your window, and all you see is snow.
Will you get so cold, you erase me from your soul.
or will you look back at our pictures? the photos we took together? with all our stupid pose.
then will you really remember all these things? Will you really? will you?

One day will you look back? Remember all the fun we had? or will you just forget about me?
will you just forget about me?
cause I won't. I won't. I won't.

Do you remember the time we spent, sitting on the bench? do you remember? do you?

I wrote this song for you, for me, for us.

Open Your Eyes.

to just be able to relax, that's what I want, that's all I want. To just be able to do absolutely nothing, without someone ordering me around. to just bum around, so to speak. But alas, in this world that we're living in, it ain't possible. I gotta go out, gotta study, gotta work towards a career so that I'll be able to get a stable job in the future. That's what society tells us right? work now relax later. my question is, when exactly is that later?

you go to primary school and study hard for UPSR to get in a good secondary school. you study hard for PMR to get in a good form 4 class. you study hard for SPM to get in a good college. you study hard to get in a good university. you study hard to get a good job. you work hard to get a better position, a promotion. and then you keep working hard till you reach the peak of the ladder, till you're at the top of the world.

is this the life that I want to live?

the little things in life, that's what will pull us through. to be able to appreciate the small things in life that brings us joy. minute things that have a huge impact in our lives, whether you realize it or not.

things like dinner time with family, hanging out with friends, or even just listening to music. it's amazing how listening to your favorite song can affect your mood.

as I study for my biology exam on wednesday, the last paper of my A2 exams, while snow patrol plays in the background, I think to myself is it worth it? this pursue of a 'normal life'? this race that we're all in? all this hard work that only causes more hard work?

and then open your eyes starts playing, and I forget it all.

The West Indian Manatee

It's like a floating round blob with flippers. 

The West Indian Manatee (Trichechus manatus) is a large aquatic mammal of the order Serenia. They are found in shallow coastal areas where seagrass beds or freshwater vegetation flourish. They are gentle, slow-moving animals that are completely herbivorous. The West Indian Manatee population is estimated at only about 2500.

West Indian Manatees have no natural enemies. However, a large number of manatee fatalities are from human-related activities such as ingestion of fish hooks, litter, and entanglement in nets and destruction of its natural habitat. However, the most serious threat that the manatees are facing is collision with watercraft.
A 2000 National Geographic article stated that 900 manatees had been killed by boats since 1994. Manatees cannot hear the low frequency sounds emitted by boats and thus do not know that they are in danger in order to get out of the way.

The reproduction rate for manatees is low. They are not sexually mature until they are five years old and only one calf is born every two to five years. Due to their low reproduction rate, a decline in manatee population may be hard to overcome.

They are protected under federal law by the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 and the Endangered Species Act of 1973 which make it illegal to harass, hunt, capture or kill any of these marine mammals.
As a result of the Endangered Species Act, the Florida Manatee Recovery Plan was developed and is coordinated by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. The plan is geared towards recovering manatees from their current endangered status. Site-specific boat speed zones were developed in 13 counties where manatee population is relatively high. This step is to reduce the likelihood of watercraft collisions.

The scientists at Florida Atlantic University have developed a high frequency warning device that is to be attached to boats to warn manatees of a boat’s presence. The Save the Manatee Club was established in 1981 and advocates legislation on behalf of manatees, and raises funds for equipment used in manatee rescue and rehabilitation efforts. Large amount of research is also being carried out to learn more about the West Indian Manatee in hopes of learning more about this aquatic mammal and finding new ways to protect and conserve it.

Hey guys, it's May 11th, the first paper of my A2 exams is tomorrow and I got so bored of studying I decided to post something.

So, it's the middle of the year already. Time seems to pass as fast as a Bugatti Veyron. It's already been one and a half years since I sat for SPM and finished form 5. Now, I'll be going off to England in September.

Recently, I found myself thinking about the past alot. from the early days of form 1, to being a senior in form 5, and then about the first few months of college, and just like that, I'm about to finish college in 3 weeks.
I get all nostalgic just thinking about it now.

So, I'd like to give a quick shout out to the people who I've been lucky (or unlucky) enough to meet in this past few years. in no particular order.
and a side note: don't get offended if I didn't mention you. I probably forgotten to put your name in or I just don't give a sheep about you. pick whichever reason suits your need best.

so here goes.

again, these are just the people who I've met after form 1. if I knew you before form 1 then you won't be in this list. So don't go trolling me, spamming my cbox saying that I don't care about you (even if I really don't)

also, check out the debut performance of THE BENCHERS belowww.

The Benchers is comprised of Sean, Jun and of course me.
we were very nervous and only had 1 day of practice so go easy on the criticism yeah?

peace, love and manatees.

Melancholy Town where they never smile

Hey sup' people?
a new video is up. Just me and Kai Xiang messing around actually.
We covered Feel Good Inc by Gorillaz. Do you even remember the song?
It used to be my favorite song back when it first came out. I remember just singing it over and over again in school. So anyway, check it out and give it a thumbs up! =D
Also, give some love to Kai Xiang for throwing in a sweet solo towards the end.

peace, love, and all the other stuff that comes with it.
