Endau Rompin

My sister just came back from Endau Rompin National Park.

She says she couldnt find any Endau named Rompin.

But she found a Batang Benar in Serembam.

Endau means handsome in hokkien
Batang means stick in Malay
Benar means true/real in Malay


Diffraction Grating.

Aquarium Toilet

"Hay, let's buy a USD140 bullet train ticket from Tokyo, take about 170 mins to reach Kobe, and take another local train or bus to reach a cafe in Akashi"


"To use the toilet."

Tokyo Game Show 2008

Went to Tokyo Game Show 2008 last sunday. It features all the games you could find under the sun.




Play Station



In addition to the usual pretty girls with flyers, they have pretty 'interesting' crowds too.

Like Chun Li is among the crowds

And some gypsy are waiting in line to get their hands on the latest game.


This guy below is having lil baby for lunch.

The favourite of the day:

Radiohead Live in Tokyo (Videos)

Entrance and 15 Step 1"23'

You and Whose Army/Videotape 5"39'

All I need 3"51'

Everything in it's Right Place 0"44'

Radiohead In Rainbows Japan Tour'08

After months of waiting, The day was finally here! 8th Oct 2008.

Hall A

Venue was in Tokyo International Forum. The place was amazing. Right after stepping out of the train station, we saw people helding up cardboards, wishing somebody might give up Radiohead tickets to them. I could had been money minded, selling my tickets at twice the price I bought them.

Tokyo International Forum

We were inside the hall kidda early. Kiasu-mah.

Main Hall, Capacity of 5k

The opening act is by an electronic music band from Berlin call Modeselektor. It was not enough to warm up the crowds.


So, we rushed out the venue after the opening act, gulped down two cups of beer, rushed to the toilet, and dashed back to the scene. The stage's background changed.

Pipes dangling down from stage ceiling

Then moments later, Thom Yorke and crew walked out. The crowds gone mad. Without any words, they straight away play 15 step from In Rainbow album.

The most memorable moments are You and Whose Army, Electioneering and Paranoid Android. Too bad they did not play Fake Plastic Tree that day which was one of my fav. No matter, it was definitely a very memorable gig.

Video will be uploaded later. :)

Lack of Update-ness

Please forgive my lack of update-ness for my Sheepish blog. Been up to nothing much recently. Winter semester had started, stress is hitting hard on me now. I feel the need to excel among a bunch of elites.

Ando Sensei wanted me to translate his lecture notes from Japanese to English, so, I am hook up with this task. Also, busy 'trying' to revise my Japanese before the starting of regular class next week.

Summer is over. I am not eager to see the turning-red green leaves.

It's miserable to be cold again.
