some pictures from Malaysia

Chicken rice in Mid Valley's food court. This one had a lot of gravy. The hard-boiled eggs add a nice touch to it too. Doesn't it always?

This was from Lim’s Fried Chicken. So simple. Rice, veg, fried chicken, curry and egg. Don’t even know if that’s Chinese, Malay, or Indian. BUT FUCK IT WHO CARES IT’S GOOD

This was at Verona’s, the Italian restaurant my aunt and Enzo owns. Would you believe it if I told you this was the world’s largest curry puff?

This was from A Pie Thing. The green stuff is mashed peas. A little bit on the expensive side, but it was all worth it once I dug in.

This was at the traffic light before the Sunway industrial area. Took this because look at that asshole taxi driver on the left.

Din Tai Fung pork chop and egg fried rice. Think they fried the rice in some salted egg yolk mixture. The pork chops are underrated too. GO TRY LA

This was at Jason’s apartment. He brought me to a spot which had a nice view of the city and its skyline. This was right before that spot, and it caught my attention.

Weirdest couple ever. Spent a lot of my time with them. ALWAYS felt like the third wheel, but it’s all good because they’re genuinely good people.

I think about you all the time. Every night. Roti Telur, I.. love you.
This was in Klang. Taman Ngee Ann. One of those coffee shops that retained its cramped, noisy, and bustling form.  Chicken rice, laksa, and steamed kaya butter bun.

An update

I got a haircut from the hairdressers 30 seconds away from my doorstep. I told him I wanted my fringe gone, so I got the number 4. It wasn’t quite short enough. I asked for the number 3 instead.

It feels light now. I like this feeling.

I was cleaning up my room when I got home. I started with the cork board, and threw away all our polaroid pictures and post it notes. They were written by you.

I was placing my books back on the shelf too, when I saw your letters. I remember I placed them there, so that I could read them over and over again whenever I wanted. I read them again one last time. “Hope we can pull through anything that comes in our away”. Could we?

I paused for a while, before I tossed them reluctantly into the trash can. All that we could have become, is now all we can ever dream of becoming.

The sunlight in the U.K breathes life into the souls of local students nowadays. Wherever the sunlight hits, the English will be there. No doubt. It’s strange, because back home locals go wherever the cold is.

I can’t wait to get on with Adobe Illustrator. The photos that have been released recently are so blurry. It’s annoying. It looks fine on my notebook, but once it steps into Facebook’s territory it looks fucked up.

Can’t wait to add value to the world too.

sorting out ideas

Everyday I get new ideas; everyday they need to be sorted out.

But the thrill of getting new ideas everyday’s like a double-edged sword isn’t it?

At any given point, you have ideas that you want to pursue and you have ideas that are pursued and unsustainable.

It’s a lot of mental work, you know; but for the pursuit of that one great, I’d do it over and over again.

Give me 3 weeks from today to design a site. Deadline: May 7th. 

a shrill shriek follows me

liewshn:

This guy right here… You need to follow him la

things I learnt today on (mostly) Photoshop

  1. cmd + A to select all
  2. cmd + D to deselect
  3. Convert to Smart Object to make life easier
  4. T to transform
  5. Drag after pressing T with Shift to ensure photo ratio stays intact
  6. Drag a photo directly from its source to the open file to use it
  7. SLICE to keep dimension in check
  8. Rectangular marquee + delete to forgo crop

Other than that, you’ll never know when you (and your designer-coder-startup friend) might bump into a restaurateur-coder at a coffee shop and share each others’ ideas. When you do, foresee epic brainstorming and vigorous rethinking.

Personally, our chance meeting definitely made a big difference to everything we were (and still are) working on.
