YB Nurul Izzah Anwar and Raja Petra Kamaruddin LIVE in Melbourne

Last month, I attended a public forum spoken by Nurul Izzah and Raja Petra at Clayton Hall (near Monash University).

full house
Response was so overwhelming that there's always not enough seats. All of us should love that.

Raja Petra was our own comedian in the house. He made us LOL!

The take home message was to vote for a government we want. Not just voting for the Opposition to replace the present government. We should set a higher expectations for the next government.

After the talk it's photo time! YB Nurul Izzah had to take an earlier leave so didn't get to pose with her.

biopolymath and raja petra
Call him Pete.

My friends were also there!

The wind of change is blowing. We have always wanted it, we won't stop till we get what we want.

Here's the Korean original for comparison:

My new toy: iPod touch 8 GB

I've never expected it, I won an iPod touch 4th generation by a lucky draw during CMG Idol!

I knew I've missed out a lot on Apple iOS apps because I don't have an iPhone, especially many developers choose to write apps for iPhone over other platforms (Symbian, BlackBerry, Android). But not anymore! With my new toy I'm able to enjoy Instagram and Tweetdeck like most people do.

With my new iPod touch, I don't use it as a music player, mostly. With the iPod touch, I'm introduced to tons of interesting apps like never before, I do not get to enjoy them on my N97. The apps adds so much more value to this supposedly music player in my palm, I got exposed to so much useful softwares like never before, functionality of iPod touch increased exponentially with each app loaded. It becomes some sort of mini computer that comes in handy whenever I need something. The only limit is disk space, practically I have 6 GB available; and your imagination on how the device can become useful to you.

Back then, phones with Internet access were considered luxury. I could still remember my prepaid credit got drained out simply by browsing a few web pages, when I first stepped onto Melbourne two years ago. Two months passed, I found out that mobile Internet just got 10 times cheaper. Practically, I find myself checking my Twitter and Facebook on my mobile, everyday.

Who will be able to predict what people need in time to come? The thing you label a luxury can become a necessity in the near future.

Going Crazy MV stalker version

Girl singing in fear coupled with haunting lyric of stalker's rap. Here you go, Song Ji Eun's Going Crazy:

I've always thought Ji Eun was using a wig for her blue hair. Turned out she was dying her hair blue for it. Cute K-pop songs are everywhere and overrated - I like the Ji Eun in Going Crazy rather than Shy Boy.

K-pop songs I like with recorded music (MR) removed

Not long after I started 3rd year of uni, I searched for 5dolls' debut video. What I found was:

It sounded a little weird. Lacking time, I didn't find further videos of them. Back then I had no idea of what's MR removed.

Being a singer is really a occupational hazard. Check them out below:

SECRET: Shy Boy - a demanding dance that makes you gasping for air and still sing!

T-ara: Yayaya

G.NA: Black and White

SNSD: Oh! - I say dancing and singing is next to impossible! Don't believe me?!

You expect a reasonable performance when dancing is not involved.

SECRET Jieun: Going Crazy

Chi Chi: Don't Play Around - Obviously lip syncing!!!

IU: Good Day - You can say she's fit physically.

Who's the one that can really sing?
