From the Indian stall at Alpha. Egg, fish and veg. Delish. But the queue is long.

Tip: Make queuing fun, bring a friend!


My calves. They hurt.

24 Jun

Results update here!

4th day of a 30-day program to add an inch to my calves, as promised by the article below:

Basically the program tells you to do between 50 to 100 reps of calf raises everyday for a month. The upward portion lasts 2 seconds, hold at the top for 2 seconds, and downward 2 seconds.

The only way to know if it works is to try it and the cost for trying this out is very low –  no prep, no equipment needed, easily performed anytime and anywhere. So here I am, into the 4th day and my calves ache like mad and I walk funny. I expect the ache to wear off eventually as the muscles adapt to the high repetitions, which was something I rarely do.

My calves measure 14 inches cold when I started this. Will report in 26 days with the results. :)

Ohai, iz bak. Version 2012.

The good news is I’m finally done with my exams for the last 3 units of my studies, bad news is that I suspect this will not be the end of it. Sigh.

Looked at the site stats page and was quite surprised (and secretly pleased) to see a small number of visitors everyday. Then I realised that most might be bots, which quickly killed off the previously mentioned feeling of being secretly pleased. But I know there’s at least one human visitor who claimed to have been checking this site regularly and mocking me in my face IRL for my lack of updates. This post is dedicated to you and the other (human or robotic) visitors. Thanks for reading!


2011 in review. My blog stats, that is.

14 Jan

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 33,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 12 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

30 May

just taking a break from exam-mugging to share a site full of lolz that i had stumbled across. XD

lots of funny stuff in the politics section, if you are familiar with US politics.

here’s the link straight to the politics section:

the rest of the site is funny too, of course. even the captions on the ads are satirical.
