Terry Fox Run KL 2008 - I'm in!

Friday, October 31, 2008
A bit of history behind Terry Fox.

Terry Fox is a Canadian who at the age of 18, was told that his right leg had to be amputated above the knee as a result of bone cancer.
During this crucial period, Terry saw the intense pain and despair of other cancer victims and was deeply moved. In order to raise funds for cancer research, he decided to run across Canada asking for donations.

Although he had to use an artificial right leg, his determination to raise the fund lead him to run from the very west to the very east of Canada. Can you imagine that? The route is across more than 5 province... and each province is more than twice as large as Malaysia!

This became ‘The Marathon of Hope’. Terry Fox died before he could complete his crusade, but his legacy is carried in the hearts of all who participate or donate to the Terry Fox Run each year around the world.

Terry Fox is a symbol of inspiration of all Canadian.


This coming Sunday (2 November 2008), which is the day after tomorrow, there will be a Terry Fox run at KL.
The starting point will be at Tasik Perdana. There is no registration required. Participants are required to be there before 9 am.
There are 2 route that can be taken. One route is 5km and another one is 7km.

Donation can be done by purchasing a limited edition Terry Fox shirt for RM25.00.

Any inquiries about the event can be directed to

This event came to my senses via my lecturer. Well, since our lecturers are mostly from Canada, of course they won't miss something like this, hence promoting it to their students.
I felt quite touched upon hearing the story of Terry Fox. Some more, one of my senior lecturer had witnessed Terry Fox in his epic run. I feel quite bad to not joining in honoring Terry's effort. To be exact, it is his effort to help in the funding for the cancer research.

I'm in! =D

By the way, I have a humble request for those who has read this post.
Please spend a couple of moments to visit Terry's Wikipedia to know him better. My words are not that good to describe the real him.

(p/s: One of the 'note' stated for the upcoming run is... "You can walk, run, skate, bike or use a skateboard." =D=D)

New NFS!!

Monday, October 27, 2008
Just in case you are not aware, EA will launch their next installment of the Need For Speed series on November 18. The title is... Need For Speed - Undercover. =D

This new installment is particularly based on our all-time favourite game - Need For Speed Most Wanted. There are cops, helicopters, new world to be explored as usual,... and the cars that can be damaged just like in Prostreet.

Maybe the difference this time is, there are missions that will be given to you, such as going to somewhere to pick up something, send it to somewhere else... etc.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention... just like Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, now you can be the cop! You can be the one who make people get busted XD.

As for now, the game has not been released yet, but you can see some in-game footage at youtube... such as this one.

Some quotes from various sites. =D

"Riccitiello(CEO of EA) stated Undercover is taking inspiration from action films such as The Transporter, with a large embedded narrative."

"John Doyle (Developer at EA Black Box) has hinted Undercover will feature a brand new game mechanic and a "Most Wanted-ish" sandbox style of gameplay."

There seems to be some appearance of characters from previous installment as well.

Hmm... my comment?
........... Please oh please... there better be some multiplayer function for LAN gaming.

I've been onto the NFS series for quite a long time. I could say... since the beginning? LoL. I'm looking forward to play this game. Hopefully my x2300 can handle it = =. It wont be much fun for me since I can't enjoy its graphic quality which has been their main attention recently.

(p/s: I have lost my interest in Spore[another game by EA] = =. Can someone buff me up back?)

Lunar Spirit back from the Stars!

Sunday, October 26, 2008
Hmm.. well.. lunarness. Why is he so crazy about that? you would ask.Such a lolness. #1

To be honest, there is no real reason. I am just holding on to some logic, but mentioning it here worth nothing because... no one will care, really. (Just like my previous ObeyObeyObey post perhaps XD, but interestingly, some people commented, lol, ty)

Okay, before this crap gets longer, lemme get this straight.
This can be called as... My Lunarness Aniversary... Hooray!
It has nothing to do with my 'big plan coming up' post.
Ok, so let's get going.

By the way, don't waste your time finding the meaning of 'lunarness' although googling it might save some cats. #2

It is about A GAME........
...well, to be exact, AN RPG GAME
related to my lunarness... a lot

Do you aware of a series called Star Ocean? I don't mind if you dont, but at least aware that I do.

A few years back I played this thing called Star Ocean - The Second Story for PS. The story is awesome!! An anime titled Star Ocean Ex also has been made as an adaptation to this game.

Hrmm, of course all fantasy-genred games are great, but this one is different. During that time, I prefer this type of RPG for its real time battle system which is in contrast with a pokemon-like battle system in you-know-which game =D.

That time is that time. Although the you-know-which game has improved da%n a lot now, I still keep up with my Star Ocean =D I have sense of loyalty too, just for you to know =D.


In SOex, the ending theme song was sort of among the 'first wave' of Jpop songs that have hit me, hence introducing me to Jpop genre. =D

Still related to Soex, the ending animation shows three moon revolving the place. The way they emphasize that moon in that scene is so COOOOOOOOL!(... to me of that period, lol)

Just like Rockman series with their adventure-techno-like music, this series also brings along its own style of music which is more time-space-like and toward-the-future-like. LoL. It is also Cool really =D

The most important thing here is... The main character, Rena has a Crescent Hairpin!! Its soooo COOOOOOOOOOL! I like it =D Where else you can find a girl who wears a crescent moon clip?

The main point here is.... it is unique. Oh yes, one more thing... the Star Ocean titles, logo, design, web sites, game menu...some main character's hair are emphasizing on the BLUE COLOUR!! THAT'S SMOKING STYLE!!!!! MUAHAHAHA!!! =D =D (lol? y should I be laughing? XD)

(Gasping for air... lol XD)

So, that's the introduction of why I like the series... What makes me so excited today is because Square Enix has released a REMAKE of my favourite installment, Star Ocean 2 - The Second Story. Oh yes, this time with a new title, Star Ocean 2 - Second Evolution. Isn't life so fun??? =D=D

Since I've played it before, why should I show concern? No!!
There are a few reasons, in which among them are...

1) This time, they include some veryx3 COOL animated cut-scene, a truely remake compared to the anime version. PLUS!, the theme song for this game is FANTASTIC! A song called Start by Scandal.
2) Then, the voice actress for Rena this time is.... Mizuki Nana, which from what I've known her so far, she has performed the opening theme song for whole Nanoha series, who is also the voice actress for Hinata in Naruto, Fate in Nanoha series, Yuufa in Ragnarok Animation!!
3) Again, the storyline =D

... unfortunately... it is on PSP.

Ah! Not an obstacle at all. While waiting for the English version to come out, I'll start saving =D =D =D.

Ah! Some pics!

Rena in SO2Ex...

...and her in SO2SE

#1: Might not apply to all of you. Mainly to the people who know me more than 3 years =D
#2: Don't you ever heard of the quote "Cat dies because of curiosity?"

(p/s: Last time when I play eRO, I remember giving a Crescent Hairclip to a person. Wonder what happened to it now XD)
(p/s 2: I changed the Flash player on the top right to play the SO2SE theme song. Hear it!!)

Unit 2102 Dark Trade

Saturday, October 25, 2008
On last Thursday, we had our Unit test for the chapter Electrochemistry =D. The test is hard, but still manageable. =D If it is not hard, it wont be called as test anyway = =. Test are meant to be hard, Yeap!

And then, on the next day which is Friday, which is also yesterday(lol), we had our English 3U test for our knowledge in Shakespeare. Now, I see Shakespeare quite differently than the way I look at him before we get into our unit. He is simply... a freak. lol. No just kidding. Muahaha.

By finishing the 2 test, all of our subjects are finally in their last Unit.
Gambatte to all ICPU scholar.

Done with that.
So, today we decided to refresh our spirit and soul at The Summit.

As the result... =D =D


Ah! 1 more person is not there =D. Too bad he has his own plan for the day. If not, we could make it 3 vs 3, woohoo.

We went pooling! Actually, our initial plan is to go jamming, but since there is some unknown argument between my friends and the Guitar place owner, the plan deviated XD.
I didn't actually finish the game. After a few shots, I went downstair to find some ANIME DVDs.

[update 26/10: Wait a second,.. I just realized something in the picture...]
Black vs Pink vs Yellow vs Red vs Green

Tomorrow, maybe I'll go to Low Yat to check out some new stuffs =D.
I have a few things in mind now...

1) Asus F5VL battery or
2) Ext. Hard Disk or
3) Sony PSP or
4) HP...

Maybe I'll ignore option 3 and 4 for now. Option 1 and 2 however, are crucial. Now I know why my friends who went to tertiary education earlier inquired about ext. hard disk. Haha. Naruhodo.
On the other hand, for my F5VL battery.... FISH!

(p/s: [Update 26/10] Too bad I was wearing black. So ironic, the one who likes to wear blue shirt didn't wear it on such occasion XDXD)

XP vs Vista (Chips)

Friday, October 24, 2008
By Chips Magazine

Recently I bought a Oct 08 Chips magazine. It seems to be a monthly routine to buy 1 at MPH Bookstore at The Summit for me. XD. This month's release has an article that I've been looking for so long =D =D =D
Remember my post called Noob argue about Vista?

Chips has done the work for me =D. And surprisingly, their conclusion is very much similar to mine.

I wont go through all the test process in this post XD. You will have to buy the mag if you want to know. I'll just put their conclusion here.

"Even though it might sound astonishing, Vista wins hands down. The latest version of Windows comes out as the frontrunner, but only if one has a high speed computer and the latest hardware and software product. Even though the User Account Control can be annoying, with respect to security, the OS offers much more then its predecessor. XP only has partial success - users with sluggish computers or notebooks should keep using this seasoned OS, not just because it is quicker but also because it has virtually none of the hardware of software problems that Vista poses." (October 08, Chips Magazine)

In red is the the thing that is not mentioned in my post earlier.

But the conclusion does not covers everything. Buy the magazine to see the result for each test they did. Both have their own advantage in certain situation. =D =D

(p/s : Work cited. )

Get the message?

I have a lot of thing that I believe.
Some are abstract, and some are specific with proof.
Some are fun, and some are not.

But, there are things that make you feel great to know them.
However, you do not believe in them.
Isn't it great to just believe it then?

If there is fun in believing, then believe it.

And it is okay because after that, it rests on the word FUN.

If it is fun to NOT BELIEVE what you have believed so far, then it is fine.

(p/s: A bit from Haruhism =D. But still, my physics understanding is more solid I believe. =D)
