Sony Malaysia held this MyFirstVAIO contest whereby you design your own skin for the new Sony Vaio, and the winner will get a Vaio C series, with the winning design la.

Now I'm not really a contest person. I hate competitions. I never enter them. My friends know that. But goddamn I'm desperate for a new laptop! I can shower, do my laundry and boil water while waiting a message window to pop up load with the one I'm currently using. It's so obsolete that I am breaking my Hobbit tradition and join a friggin' competition for the first time.

But therein lies another problem - I am so caught up with work I barely have time to whip out new designs for this shit! So I figured what the heck. I scoured my folders for old drawings, paintings and just whacked Photoshop like how Ike beat Tina.

So um yeah whatever.

Still in topic, Jezmine, my uni junior has been chosen for Project Runaway Malaysia. Congratulations! Way to go, girl. Check out her très cool blog for some fashion sense!

I've got an F and a C, and I've got a K too. The only thing that's missing is a *beep* like U

As a teenager I grew up obsessed with depression, often having suicidal thoughts. In high school I was perpetually brooding, feeling melancholy by choice. Marilyn Manson was the soundtrack of my life. I thought it was "cool" listening to the Antichrist Superstar.

However, I became my own antithesis in university. Love. Ah.. bright young things. Graduated, and now working my dream job - I'm a fucking carnival. But after all these years I finally heard the ultimatum: "Je ne vous aime plus".

What seemed "cool" then is now the only state I am able to be in. Only this time it's not a choice. And it is so not cool! Marilyn Manson, welcome back.

Unused artwork for Dark Hunger

"Carpathians are immortal blood-drinkers who become evil vampires, without emotion or morals, unless they find their female lifemates. They are all dangerous hunters and warriors with a rigid sense of honor and deep family connections. Becoming a vampire is the worst thing that could possibly happen to them, as it is their utter antithesis. Because of this, they worship and adore their women with an unbreakable bond of trust, devotion, and desire."

Hah! How about that? Hell I'd be a vampire by now.

Working late nights again. What's all this about? I'll update when I'm more sober. Haven't painted for so long...

A Mid Hazy Mad Om

Spaceboy Topman

I woke up today and thought of uniforming my website, myspace music and my friendster account into one standard design. Sort of like a branding (?)

But then reality kicks in - I'm too busy with a long term project I'm assigned to clear by the end of this month. Then, out of the blue I scribbled my full name backwards. It sounded like 'desire the mayhem'. I thought it was cool I quickly registered the name for this blog.

I guess it can be the other side of my official website, (like how Paul Pope has his Pulp Hope blog).

Oh by the way, the title for this post is an anagram of my full name. Thought that'd be interesting to share :P
