Leon Lai in 1993. Jacky Cheung and Alan Tam in 1996.

I went to scrape through my old collection of photographs. These stuff were taken AGES ago, when I was still a young, weird-looking little kid.

Cantopop in the 90s.

With Leon Lai. 1993. A press conference in Singapore before his concert.

With Heavenly King, Leon Lai

With Jacky Cheung and Alan Tam. 1996. A celebration after an awards ceremony. It was also pop star Kelly Chen's birthday.

Soap Opera Alert! Kimi ga Nozomu Eien!

Finished Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien in one sitting last night (watched everything except the last episode in double speed though, so characters were speaking quickly in high voices). What can I say about this anime? Hmm... it's not exactly what I would consider entertaining, but it's compelling enough to keep me awake from beginning to end.

Evaluating the heroes of PS2 RPGs

Okay, I did finish Lord of the Rings: The Third Age as I've promised. But the story of the game got so retarded in the end that even though I had a faulty copy (after beating the final boss, me cannot see the ending), I was too indifferent to care already.

I've started playing Shadow Hearts 2 right after that even though I've never played Shadow Hearts before (it's a direct sequel) because it's getting better reviews than Star Ocean Story 3, and it's seemingly more... different from your generic RPGs (The Third Age really left a bad taste in my mouth, I shit you not). I'm currently loving the game even though I'm just two hours into the game. The hero's a badass dude who can turn into a demon and already I can declare that he's BY FAR the coolest PS2 RPG hero ever. Really, I shit you not. Look at his competitors (just the main male characters in RPGs, not the female ones, so Shion from Xenosaga is excluded):

Lord of the Rings: The Third Age

I'll probably finish the Lord of the Rings: The Third Age by tonight (I can actually do it now, but li'l sis wants me to wait for her before I lay the smack down on Sauron, so...) and makes it the very first console RPG I've completed for this year.

Death In Venice Expert?

Man, I've been doing so many things about Death In Venice for European Mythologies(one of my literature units in uni) that I feel like an expert already. I mean, not only have I done an oral presentation about Thomas Mann and his novella, I've also written a 3000-word long essay analyzing the 1971 film adaptation by Luchino Visconti (just printed out the whole damned thing just minutes ago, it's due on the 15th of November... er, that's today).

I'll be putting up the essay onto my site, cos' I'm pretty damned proud of it, and it's film-related, and also it's rare for me to write something that goes THAT deep into a film and its source material. Just let me look for some screenshots first.

Novel Update

Yes, I'm going to talk about my novel now, a writing project I haven't touched (excluding the time when I brought the rough draft onto my site, and also a short chapter I was writing 2 months ago which was meant to be a meeting between two major characters) since Alanded went off to Sydney on February.

As many of you should know now, the entire project's going to undergo one MASSIVE overhaul. It's going to be VERY different from before, even though many of the characters who appeared in the rough draft will still be around. But everything else, the main plot, the settings (especially this), the tone, the mood, everything will be pretty damned different from before.

I'm bringing this up after having a pretty short conversation with Alanded this afternoon regarding the new direction our novel will be heading. And I think I pretty much like what's going on. And yes, once I'm done with Slam Dunk: Inside Stuff, I'm going to concentrate fully on this novel as my one and only writing project, and nothing else anymore. So, basically, once Slam Dunk: Inside Stuff is done, I will move it to another section on my page, and then start expanding the section that was for my novel (and we'll probably try to come up with a name for the series by then).

We'll put up lots of stuff, flash animations, games, blah blah, for the novel, hopefully. So yeah.
