Day before halloween...


Ok i was originally going to reveal this during my halloween post tomorrow. But i just can't help myself.

I made a full costume from scratch. I even bought latex and made a mold for my face for the mask. Then earlier today got some rubber gloves and a real semi leather apron. Which i was very suprised to find and it cost only five bucks!! Talk about a deal. Only thing missing are black boots but i think i could figure something out.

The plan is that i'm going to wake up extra early to prep my costume. Stay tuned to see me in full costume!

The sketching mood.


Yup Alisha the news and traffic girl... got the sketching bug too.

On the right is a sketch she did of me and on the left one i did of her.

My Love for Short Films...

Ya know i just realised something... at one point of time i was never really into short films. I don't really know why, maybe it's because i'm used to the idea that Films are supposed to be a full two hours or plus plus and i guess the same goes for short stories...

But it just dawned on me after awhile whether it be short stories of the internet or in book form and short short films through youtube or other streaming video page... I love shorts and had always loved them without knowing it. I mean it's like a good joke with a good quick punch line, it's not a full stand up but still you'll be on the floor laughing.

I mean imagine, a story that gets you captivated but distilled into ten minutes of your time. TO appreciate a short story or film is totally different from enjoying a Novel or a Full-length movie. I once thought it was in the same category (that was the problem) but it's not.

It's a different feeling, different experience all together.


p.s. here is a short film i just saw five minutes ago... pretty funny.

Some old photos...

Here is some old photos that i wanted to post on my blog that never really got to... but here tehy are... they are of the Campur Chart that happened about a month back :D





Wierd thing that happened.


Half an hour ago as i was leaving my parents place. i found A letter stuck on the left passenger side window of my car.

I can't seem to figure out if the letter was stuck to my car when i left the studio or when i was inside my parents place.

Here is what the letter says " assalam mu'alaikum wt. wb. Saya minta maaf atas apa yang saya buat dan saya nak cakap apa yang ada di hati. Saya tidak faham kenapa perasaan ini muncul dalam diri saya, saya juga tidak mengerti kenapa la uduh bersemadi dalam hati saya,petang yang nyamaan ini, membuatkan saya begitu berani untuk mencoratkan sesuatu untuk kamu yang tidak pernah saya kenali,terima kasih!

Dari saya misteri "

I'm seriously not making this up...i'm slightly creeped but mostly curious about who wrote it...

The New Janitor...and Prem is his name...

Yup we at the studio here just discovered how much of a clean freak Prem can be... words can never explain how Prem just took the vacuum cleaner from the cleaning lady (while she was vacuuming no less) and proceeded to clean the whole studio! every nook and cranny... since words can never explain enough...here are pictures to prove the point :P




An hour in the kitchen...


Yup thats right i spent a good hour in kitchen making...ayam masak merah for the fly fm and hot fm potluck.

Okay doesn't look like much all packaged... I knew i should have taken a picture while cooking...more street cred lol. But yeah used all the usual ingredients although i used butter instead of veg oil. So that should give it an extra kick... :)

So guys at the studio i made this with all my 'Kasih sayang'... even made sure the chicken was tender and not all tough... Which i hate with an iron fist! How? By boiling the chicken before hand silly you... That way all the chicken flavour comes out, or at least i think, but at least the important bit the chicken is soft and easy to eat...okay now i'm hungry :(

A lil art in my life...


Random doodle recently done on my notebook.

Playing with the camera.


Last week i was so clicker happy and was constantly taking pictures. Mostly little things that i felt could turn out to be a grand picture. Here is one of many. I'll post the rest up later.

I guess something like an online photo gallery...ooooh don't i feel artsy ! Lol

Random Youtube video...

Yup this video seriously made me laugh my rear-end off! a very well made amateur video entitled "Why Asian Guys Can't Get white Girls" ... two thumbs up and a must watch.

a quote to remember...

“If you think you are too small to be effective, you have never been in bed with a mosquito.”
-Betty Reese

"

Believers! Do not nullify your acts of charity by stressing your benevolence and causing hurt as does he who spends his wealth only to be seen by men and does not believe in Allah and the Last Day. The example of his spending is that of a rock with a thin coating of earth upon it: when a heavy rain smites it, the earth is washed away, leaving the rock bare; such people derive no gain from their acts of charity. Allah does not set the deniers of the Truth on the right way. "

Quran(2:262 - 264)

Finding a cause...


Last night I was asked by a individual by the named of jimmy to attend a parent teacher meeting for a school night that there having for SMK USJ 8. I was originally supposed to be just there to give my in put and maybe contribute just a few minutes of my time.

Although something about being there touched me. All the parents that were there probably have full time jobs filled with mountains of stress and the challenge of raising their kids right. Yet they could take the time to do something that would benefit there children's school and i found that to be such a selfless act.

I realized that we live in a very individualistic world where we are mostly pre-occupied with ourselves... and course i like any human being am no different.

But something changed... last night something awakened within me, something that i haven't felt for a very long time. I felt the need to help others, to give back to the community selflessly. I have no connection to any of these people and my connection to jimmy was only through a friend of a friend's relative basis and i had only met him twice which includes last night.

The question was how could i help them? well i volunteered my services free of charge and i had agreed to help them promote and get publicity for the event as much as i can. As well as sharing my contacts within the media.

I just feel that despite the terrible state the world is in and the bad news we always read in the papers. Good can still be done... we just have to be brave enough to do it selflessly... and last night i realized i wanted to make my community and maybe one day the world a better place... one step at a time.

Emily and I... our night out.

It's been awhile since me and Emily had a date... it's good in a relationship that now and then (or at least i feel) to just go out and treat each other how you did when you first met or during your first date.

I feel that if people kept that fire alive, and rekindle it now and then... there would be no divorce :D welll anyways sounding too preachy heh he he he he ... can't help it i'm always filled with opinions...i mean heck check out my traffic report i would always allocate four to ten seconds to say my opinion on the topic Prem and Juls are talking about.







and finally the morning after the sad goody bye moment...




i'm so lucky to be with her...

At Sri Pentas...




Every now and then i walk around sri pentas after my last traffic report... it's to basically ease my mind and mainly to wait for traffic to calm down... like i've said before what's worse than being stuck in traffic? knowing that there is a traffic jam you have to go through. Especially when you need to get home. So i took these shots of sri pentas from one of the open areas...(click to enlarge :D )




Then ran into Rina of 8tv and found out how passionate she was about wildlife and animals in general... especially towards rare animals and snake... and it just so happened that she had a snake in her car... i'm scared of snakes just incase you guys were wondering so i have no real close up shots of "Chicken" ... yes that is the name of the snake... why? cause it's afraid of people...hmmm go figure.






well anyways lets back track a bit... yes i did spend my raya at the studio and a few people have texted me saying how sad it was that i didn't get to taste some Raya food... well sorry guys i did get to taste raya food on the first day of Raya... here are pictures to prove it :D





and if you were wondering what i looked like when i was a young Moe Nasrul... like say 7 to 12-ish years old... here are some really old photos...guess which one was me :D
