1984 is real.



Shiny and happy

I just searched for my old blog. Like, the very, very old one I started in sec 1. I think is a sub-conscious self-calming mechanism. I only did 2 pages today. I couldn’t sleep so I went to watch more Terrace House (This jap reality tv on Netflix) but the development is so shocking (REALLY YURIKO WHY ARE U LEAVING WTF AND WHY IS THE NEW GUY SOME TATOO DUDE FROM HAWAII???) I couldn’t sleep even more. I guess that is why my subconscious tells me to search for something old and familiar, to comfort myself.

But I guess I searched WAYYYY too far back. Because I couldn’t understand what the hell I was writing.  Here is a quote from 9/11/2003.

Muahhahahhahahahha!!!!! lok here. great chalet in dec. HEHEHEHEEHEHEHEz so excitied!!!!

art claz as usually yesterdae(sat ma!) my piece was…. i lov it!!!! it iz so damn cool man! n successful. e dragger i was drwin rite was soooo nice. hahahaha! wait till i scan in my work…

First of all, what the heck is lok? Is that a typo? Is it look? Ok seem like my spelling has always been so bad. But look here? look what? what is there to look? I just went MUHAHAHAHHA then look here. LOOK WHAT CHIP WHAT? Was I too excited about chalet that I started seeing things I wasn’t suppose to see? And why must I add a z at the end of HEHEHEHE? Why? And Why the fuck I couldn’t type in proper words? What is with all the random eliminations of letters from the words? Was I too lazy to put the “e” at the end of the word “love”? And why replaced all the s with z? iz? seriously iz?? Why make future chip miserable 2003 chip! 2017 chip need to take at least 1 minute to understand a sentence you typed!!!

And I couldn’t believe I was actually happy with my own work. Where did all the confidence come from? and what dragger? Did you mean dagger? What cool dagger did you draw? Why were you so 中二? Why were you drawing daggers?????? Why were you so happy drawing daggers? Why? ART IS SUPPOSE TO BE A PAINFUL PROCESS LOOK AT ALL THE PAIN I AM GOING THROUGH NOW. BOTH PHYSICAL AND MENTAL.

oh god my shoulders hurt.

But I am happy that you are so happy 2003 chip. You seem invincible. I wish I can find back that part of me.  Leave the nonsense typing part out though.

I am old


Freelance is in the final stages, means I can get rid of it soon. So left full time job and 18 pages of inking.

But all of a sudden a new issue pop up. More like, I finally decide to look into this issue. My butt. In case you don’t know, the end of spinal cord has been in pain for as long as I remember every time i sit down. Everyone’s comment was like “you are too thin your butt has no meat.” That is what I thought too. But that night in the office the pain had gone so bad I felt like I can’t pretend it doesn’t exist anymore. So I went to the doctor. Who made me wait 2hours + even though I booked before hand. Guess what. Turn out my hip bones are dislocated. that is why the nerves are constantly being pulled tight and will get inflamed easily. that explains the pain.


That means my hip bones are dislocated for at least 5 years. wtf.

And the reason the hip bones are dislocated is a mystery. The doctor say most likely is caused by running or other forms of vigorous exercise. Which, I don’t do. But whatever the reason is, my hips are dislocated.

moral of the story is: If you are in pain, go see the doctor.


1997 is so happening.

You know the reason I am here.


Another facebook just reminded me that Titanic screened 20 years ago.

Another 20. Just how many things happened in 1997? Here is the list to remind myself how old I am already. yay it has been a long time since i did a list!

Things that happened in 1997

1) Pokemon Animated Series.
Ash started his journey to be a pokemon master with his soulmate pikachu. Anyway there is a reboot of episode one i.e. Pikachu! I choose you! on big screen. But there is no misty and Brock and they are replaced by two unknown new characters. I wonder what is Nintendo thinking.

2) One Piece
Luffy beginning yelling “I WILL BE A PIRATE KING!” on his small little boat. And Shanks lost his arm. Anyway some official Japanese anniversary-celebration-holiday committee has just announced 22 July to be One Piece Day. Is official. I love the Japanese.

3) Harry Potter
Harry received a letter from Hogwarts and had a visit from Hagrid, who told him the legendary line “You’re a Wizard, Harry” Anyway there will be two more new books this year. Which is like expanding the Harry Potter universe

4) Titantic
Yar I just discovered this. Jack told Rose “You jump, I jump” in this year. When Leonardo was still hot and not like some old uncle carrying ugly purple plastic bags around.

5) Mayday
Had their first little performance as a 小咖 with other 小咖s back then (which includes Cheer Chan) in some small little park. And the rest is history.

6) Digimon
The game (remember that small little console?) first came out. I never had one. I am not a game person. But i recalled all the boys in primary school were crazy about it. Especially my tuition friend’s little brother.

7) Princess Diana passed away
I liked Princess Diana as I kid. I thought she is very pretty. You know, our news used to update us regularly on the British royalties before updating us regularly on 習大大. And the fact that she is defiant towards the strict rules of the monarchy and being active in various causes appeals to me. So her death was quite shocking to me back then.

8) Bird Flu outbreak
I think bird flu is like a prologue to SARS. I was already in Singapore then so I wasn’t directly affected. but i recall watching the news with tons and tons of chicken being killed by men in white protective suit. It was shocking images

When the whole Asian economy just collapsed. and inspired so much tvb and mediacorp dramas.

10) The Handover
Oh yes. The beginning of the end of Hong Kong.

11) Kinki Kids
Choo just reminded me that kinki kids is 20 this year too. Well, I never bother to know who the other kid was besides 堂本剛. and 堂本 will always be the one and only 金田一. Unfortunately 堂本剛 recently went deaf (!!!) due to stress. He has a lot to prepare for the 20th anniversary performances. Well, screw you Johnny’s. For abusing your artists. And causing SMAP to disband. Anyway I dont like 木村now thanks to all the SMAP saga. He seemed like a selfish jerk who cause misery to his team mates.

12) Back Street Boys
Omg so even back street boys started in 1997?? *Cues I Want It That Way*

13) Beach Boys
Omg I loved that j-drama! I think I will feel it even more now. After all, Is about two 20+ mid-crisis dudes ditching work and spending the summer at a beach house. The ending is still stuck in my mind. It is very sad.

ok this list is not going to end. so is saiyuki. But looking at the health conditions of the author, i wish her all the best and I will respect every single fucking line she draws. Don’t you dare criticise her, because she is the last person you should ever criticise for laziness and unprofessional work ethics. I just hope she gives more happiness  to goku, my first 2d crush, and stop making him endure all the heartbreaks and shit. He deserves better.

So yar, I am officially of the “When that happened I was….” age.
