Bye Bye Power Rangers
[ZOMBiE CyGiG] ranted at 12:42 AM --- Post#7323658403357490498

My display cabinet with Power Rangers.

These got to go, selling them to a collector for $85.

White Ranger.

Dino Megazord Tank Mode.

Dino Megazord Battle Mode.

Mega Tigerzord.

Red Dragon Thunderzord.

Sold part of my Power Rangers collection to a collector for $85. What is sold is shown above. Bye bye to them! They were my "friends" when I was young, when you grow up without human friends, you began to personify toys and objects around you... Probably that started my interest in gadgets. Somehow I was abit reluctant to let go, but they are practically useless and takes up quite a lot of space. Probably a collector could do more to them.

$85 altogehter for those sounds cheap, but I can justify. During those days, those toys were abused like fuck by me. I remember I used to have 雷神王 bots, and when I threw tantrum I will smash them onto the floor, and I remembered they ended up in the bins due to severe fracture and breakage. But Power Rangers could resist much more abuse by me without a total break down. By now, most of the bots have scratches and peeled stickers. My sis used to bite those accessories like swords and staffs and now they are filled with chew marks. Some small figurines and objects tt came with the set were gone too. Thus I self-justify the steep decrease in its price (not value).

If its in mint condition or at least 8/10 (now is about 6/10),I would have sold one set for $60 lor.

DIY Grey Card
[ZOMBiE CyGiG] ranted at 11:06 AM --- Post#1671344037330847653

I printed out all shades of grey for my printer, and match it with a free grey card I got from purchasing a photography book. Though technically there colour aint totally the same, but practically it's useful enough for something that cost near to nothing.

Make Up
[ZOMBiE CyGiG] ranted at 6:48 PM --- Post#8860866810876615656

Just now, I was browsing through some Facebook photos when I came across this girl, whom I always commented on her make up. She used to look all right - average college girl, but after she went to University, she started all her "face painting lessons" and made an "artwork" out of her face. Wheee...I will always see saturated electric triadic colours - blue, yellow, red all over her face, machiam like colour mixing palette for glossy car paint. Its not just my view, some my my female friends agreed to my judgement as well.

I'm not sure about other guys, but I never like girls that make up, esp if she cannot do a good job. When I see a woman with make up, I will tend to play "Spot The Flaws" and try to see your pimples and freckles and dark circle underneath. Natural skin FTW, even if you aint pretty, I will appreciate you for being yourself naturally.

There is this statement I always used to describe girls that cannot make up properly, "Using Lipstick as Mascara", which I feel is not far away from reality. The truth is, if you have a face with all parts fighting for attention by using strong and heavy colourings insensitively, then you are going to look like some shit.

Generally, what I feel is:
If you are an ugly girl, and you dun make up, you look ugly.
If you are an ugly girl, and you have poor make up, you look fugly.
If you are an ugly girl and you have good make up, you may look chio, but once someone sees your true colour, that scene of your un-make-up face will stay forever.

If you are a chio bu, and you dun make up, you look chio.
If you are a chio bu, and you have poor make up, you look like a disgusting piece of bimbo.
If you are a chio bu and you have good make up, you look heavenly.

So, if you cant make up well, dun make up. Simple. You wun lose out more.

Going back to the photo of the girl whom I saw on FB, on certain photo, I could barely recognise her. Not that her made up had became worse, but the reverse is true. Her make up is much better now (though still far from perfect) and it has done its job to portray her as grown up woman instead of a woman-wannabe. Well, I guess some wannabes level up till professional levels at times. I can still see some awkwardness at certain angles, but its a definitely a great general improvement.

I always thought that mature girls are woman with confidence and pride, who dress up sensibly and appropriately, and not one that pours colour powder over her face, try to show assets that she dun really have, act high class with innocent and being fervently girlish.

3rd Party Ink for Brother DCP-150C
[ZOMBiE CyGiG] ranted at 4:21 PM --- Post#3066527830411710460

Empty compatible ink cartridge bought from DealExtreme.

A blank cart that I filled. Remb to remove the plug for the air vent pior to use. This pic shows the air vent plug stuffed in.

This is the black Sepoms ink I used. Bought from Mustafa Center late at nite cos got to print project for the next day.

The black cart compared to orginal.

This is my set of compatible ink cart I used for my Brother DCP-150C. For those interested, this is how the set looks like. Basically, it has similar physical shape to the original cart so that you can feed it into the printer as usual. But these compatible 3rd party carts comes with holes (one for filling, one for air venting)and plug to make refilling job much easier. The original ones I have are difficult to open, and the ink is contained in a soft plastic sheet that would break, puncture and tear very easily. It makes refilling possible but a pain.

Remb to wear gloves and apron while refilling, esp if you are a noob in this. Ink stained onto your clothings cannot be removed. If you get ink onto your hands, you will need to bleach your hands to get rid of them, some people have sensitive skin, and bleach is caustic (it corrodes and try to "eat" your skin).

Cyber Clean Review
[ZOMBiE CyGiG] ranted at 2:14 AM --- Post#2062311985613469684

This is SKU 24037 from DealExtreme. The product description is "High-Tech Dust Removal Slimy Cleaning Gel (75g)" and it turned out to be the orginal Cyber Clean. I though it would be some kind of China imitation. I got it for US$4.34. This video shows what you will get if you order one from DealExtreme.

School Life 1:5
[ZOMBiE CyGiG] ranted at 11:30 AM --- Post#4655703740005767880

Now for some serious shit. Something had went really wrong in my life.

LASALLE was much more xiong than I though. Dun get me wrong, by xiong, I do not mean throwing you 101 theories and formulae to remember of give you three GP essays a week, by xiong, I mean doing something that is easy to understand, but need ultra patience and lots of time to complete.

At first, I was told to draw my face in six different style. Still ok, but when done my lecturer told me that I need to be neat, the papers got the be clean, presentable etc. I was like "WTF? Why dint you tell me earlier?". I based my assumption on the same sketchbook they showed us, which is all dirty and untidy, and backed it up by what my design teacher used to tell me that if one work is dirty (with content and flow inside as well lah), it means he had put in effort in the exploration process. I know of ppl who redid the entire two weeks project in one day just to produce a neat copy, and ended up her grades remained the same.

Just as I tot that was worse, then I was given one week to do up a colour chart. Using RBY and black and white to create 103 different colour isnt fun at all. I did it for nearly 10 hours. And guess what, I was told that my colour is't accurate and needed amendment.

And just as I tot that was epic worst, I was just told to paint a whole fucking picture. We were told to trace it all out to a watercolor paper, and split the image into four parts to paint - Monochrome, Analogous, Complementary and Triadic colour scheme. Fact: I had never touch watercolour in my life before.

Oh btw, that is just one module. There are SIX more to deal with. WHEEEEE. For the last week, I slept only six hours for four days, each day arriving in school like an authentic zombie. Lol, I was always authentic.

Im not stressed, maybe a bit but the stress level can never beat those times in AJC. I'm just frustrated, at first when I joined LASALLE, I always though that my skills in NS and AJC could help me to a large extent, but I was partially wrong. My chao keng and excuse-scripting skills definitely helped me with some sticky situation and the Chao Slacker skills acquired in AJ helped me out in taking several short cuts (though laziness itself will use up lots of time to do a single thing even if short cut is applied). GP helped me in CCS and Grey Matters. Whereas Project Work helped me in presentation. Despite all say, art skills STILL MATTERS. Ppl with poor English and lower qualification can easily own me when it comes to drawing and painting, for my specialisation is in digital arts, I am a TOTAL noob when it comes to producing images by bare hands. But everyone can draw, it's just the matter of nice or not nice, I feel frustrated when I should be the one having advantage but end up becoming a total noob. But on the other hand, not everyone can do A levels math :) Thus the frustration and not stress.

Probably I should talk about something good. The time table is good, the people here are good, the lecturers are good, and the system is good. How good? I dun have time to really explain now, but here is a brief idea: you come to school, you study and you go home. No forced dumb commitments like CCA, extra lessons cos the inefficient AJ teachers cannot finish his syllabus, class bonding session, stupid school events like AJ Carnival, PE, helping lazy teachers etc. That is nearly exactly what I wanted. I come here to study, not to serve the school. Additional events should be left optional, and you dun make a big hoo haa if I decided to skip a lesson or two. You dun become a VP for so many years and make the whole school a totalitarian sector, sacrificing many students just for your career portfolio. Having aircon in all the classrooms is great, not like some JC which won the best energy saving award not until I was about to graduate, there were not even fans in the study area.

One thing worth mentioning in LASALLE is the teachers. You can call them "lecturers" or "tutors" but that's all just terms. I was astonished that alot of our teachers are famous practising artist and designer, coming here to teach us Foundation Studies (not sure if they teach other levels). This is what I call professionalism. You do not call in an ugly old nanny, who is IT illiterate, with her brain filled with thinkings from the 80's (along w stuff like favouritism and nag-gation ) and lead one of the alpha groups in class to doomsday for project work, to teach. Unlike common belief that the older the teacher the better, I would prefer young teachers any time, simply because communication would be fluent. I really respect my LASALLE teachers.

Now, let me talk abit more about the people in LASALLE. The first week was a fashion show, and it seemed that this trend is dying - people are now beginning to wear much more casually. Maybe its my mind getting used to the environment, I dunno. The people here have personality tilted a bit towards secondary school than JC.

There is one particular person who I die die have to mention.

Generally, that was how people in LASALLE are like. I do not know if that is a good or bad thing. I think I'm quite done writing about my damned life, and ya, I think I should go and mug le. Bye NEE!
