Holy Crap… I Broke Something!

Specifically, by altering some php code manually on the file, I seem to have caused Sila’s Pajeri Terong entry to disappear, or perhaps eaten by cacodemons at the very least. The PHP file is still there in the database directory, but somehow I can’t get it to be published on the weblog. Damage control is currently being carried out. Hopefully […]

Fleep

Fleep by Jason Shiga is not a webcomic. It’s a story published not to its conclusion by AsianWeek but now collected in its entirety at Jason Shiga’s website. It’s a story of one man’s adventure upon waking up entombed in a telephone booth. The tale starts out looking as if it’s fantastical and Twilight-Zone-esque, but like the best of stories […]

Pajeri Terong

When we were growing up, Hisham’s favorite food was Pajeri Nenas (holy cow! No Wikipedia listing for this!!). Pajeri is a kind of spicy thick gravy, sweeter than a curry but similar to a curry, containing different spices as well as kerisik). I had never made this dish myself, and finally I attempted it. But instead of Nenas (pineapple), i […]

V For Verisimilitude

I saw V for Vendetta on Monday. Therefore I shall write about it here. With spoilers. You have been warned. I only read the comic for the first time last year, so I never really connected with the background of the millieux presented by Alan Moore in the book. I understand why there was a need to alter it in […]

A Website I’m Working On

Here’s a website I’ve been working on the past month. It’s come a long way from minimal HTML code, simple CSS, placeholder images (which constisted of the Cylon raider “Scar”) and the words “Text coming soon, bitches.” on some pages. It’s still far from being fully operational. I’m hoping it’ll be 95% ready for public viewing by the middle of […]

Aragorn Jenkins

Aragorn of Pals For Life Guild

It’s unknown to me who made this image, but every time I look at it I have to at least stifle a laugh… because the way Aragorn rushes into combat almost without warning is nearly similar to how that fateful battle began at Blackrock Spire. Unfortunately not everyone will get the joke. Just you MMORPG jocks. Meanwhile, everyone else please […]

New Comments CSS Code

I’ve jazzed up the blog’s CSS code for each journal entry’s comments. It’s now, um… well, comment to this post to discover how it looks like now (or you could just check out any other entries possessing any sort of comments). I hope it would not only look aesthetically pleasant, but differentiating individual comments would be much easier now. Comments […]

Monster Chick

Illustration Friday: Monster

Yet another entry for Illustration Friday featuring the topic Monster, this artwork displays the city-leveling, destructive rampage of a fearsome, gigantic chick. Yes, a gigantic, adorable, yellow-feathered chick that hatched from an egg. Of course the fun would only begin when its mother of proportionate size comes to a-looking for the infant.

There’s A Dragon In The House

Half past ten post meridian equals no sunlight or its dim red afterglow outdoors. Thus if lights are out indoors, it’s dark. Last night we were about to go to sleep when Irfan asked for his Dinosaur book (Das Reich Der Dinosaurier. Gee, I wonder where I bought that for him) to read. It was out in the darkened living […]

Noumenon is Coming

According to the powers that be at Abstract Nova, the book which I contributed some writing for is currently in print. Although one of the two pieces I submitted didn’t make the book, the one left out will be featured in a download in May. The book itself will be launched in June. Hopefully a comp copy will be in […]

Irfan’s Cycling Saturday

Thanks to Irfan’s Tok and Opah, he now has a brand new bicycle with which he would rule the world. Or at the very least the play area at the KLCC park. Quite eager to try out his new vehicle in the morning, we took a drive to KLCC last Saturday morning. As usual, the queue into the parking lot […]

We’ll Be Back October

Not “we” as in Hishgraphics.

The 90-minute second season finale will be aired on Friday. I guess I can wait, watch the news or the cool, […]

The Library

At the end of last summer, we finally finished our library project. We turned the front room from a room where the books were stacked on the floor to having books sorted out on bookshelves. OK, let’s admit it. Neither Vin nor I are handy enough to actually build our own bookshelves, believe me we have enough trouble trying to […]
