hello world

ah...its been a long time since i took up the 'pen', so now i'll write a little sumting while waiting for rise of nations to install.

as many of my gang know (they were responsible for it in the 1st place), i've recently got hooked on a new hobby...watching anime. specifically, Naruto, the anime series about a dumb ninja wif a super powerful demon locked inside him dat saves his ass when his carelessness leads him into trouble. on top of that, my interest in dota was resurrected after temporarily being replaced by civ4 (i've deleted THAT time consuming game from all my comps d....whew...)

anyway, on to more 'serious' things. lately i've been...well...not-so-cheerful (read: depressed) as the date of my departure to japan draws nearer. well, the i dunno the exact date yet, but it'll b sumwhere between 1-7 april. that leaves me slightly more than 1 month more in penang now. n knowing u'r about to leave ur hometown somehow sets u thinking on stuff u normally dun think about. eg regrets bout the stuff i din do, wondering wat things wud hv been like if i took another path in my life, etc etc.

on top of dat, there's so many things i shud b doing in preparation but havent done yet, cuz i've been procrastinating n wasting my time on games n stuff. n wondering about the future: whether i'll b able to settle in there, how i'll adapt to the new environment etc. so u guys who r already overseas, u better leave sum comments n advice!

ok, rise of nations finished installing. sayonara!

aiks aiks... depressions is usual la... even me a veteran or upgraded or level 3 or enhanced (aiya watever fits la) oversea goer feels super depressed for the past weeks as well....

anyway not much advice lah.. as the others already say stock up on stuff tat r cheap here n expensive there (colgate etc)
n also try not to regret wat u din do... think of this as a whole new start.. another completely different life... no time to spend time scolding urself over past errors.. so cheer up k? u n yst r the gang's star in the east so shine well :D
