… for a way overdue update on this weblog. It's also this website's 10th anniversary. If you're wondering what sort of crap someone could possibly come up with over the span of a decade, look no further. In fact, I felt obligated to write something today just out of guilt actually. Opening up the editor to write this entry felt like going into a house that you own that hasn't been occupied or visited after a long while. So does that make this site a cobweb-site then?
Anyway, so much has happened since the last time I actually wrote. Unfortunately, I still haven't gotten laid. And at the rate I'm going, there's a high chance for an actual 40 year old virgin to emerge out of this. Let's hope there won't be cobwebs in the underpants then.
So then, in light of the coming festivities, I would like to wish Eid Mubarak to all the Muslim readers and friends and Selamat Menyambut Kemerderkaan Malaysia yang ke-54 in advance. Perhaps I should extend it to Happy Deepavali, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year too just in case.
Be nice. Godspeed.
Life is but a fleeting dream, an insignificant sliver of worldliness twisting through space-time. All you touch and all you see is all your life will ever be. All those memories will be lost in time, like tears in the rain. For we are just arbitrary subunits of a quivering biomass fighting the ravages of increasing entropy in a harsh unforgiving environment, trying desperately to evade the inevitable degeneration to thermodynamic equilibrium long enough to propagate our genetic information. You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everyone else. And some day, man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here… but stardust.

This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. all emotions are beautiful. When You eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often, getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them so go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream, and wear your passion.

Wow. I actually skipped two whole months without a single entry on this website. What is the world coming to?
In case you didn’t catch some of my tweets in the last month or two, once again, I got myself involved with another 8TV production called Showdown 2010 to do the music remixes and edits. The whole thing has been crazy to say the least but at the same time, the most fun as well. Crazy as I was doing this on top of the demands of my day job but fun as I was given a lot of room to play around (and too much rope to hang myself with sometimes), especially with the remixes. Plus, I gotta say that the production team has been the coolest I had the privilege to work with and the dance crews have been awesome as well bringing visual life to the songs. I hear some got injured performing to the songs too so I guess my work is done and mission accomplished.
Check out some of my own personal favorite remixes and performances…
I decided to do a bit of rummaging through one of my overstuffed
gerobok cabinet in my apartment when lo and behold, I found me an unopened brand new toaster! For the love of God, I have no idea when I made that purchase nor was it someone's gift to me but I have never been more excited about a piece of electrical appliance ever since I got my fridge a few years ago! With this, I can now have my bread slices toasted or even have waffles for breakfast. Of course, because I'm such a lazy ass, I'll probably be eating them over the kitchen sink to avoid having to clean the mess that those toasted crumbs can make all over the place.
Toaster. Never stick a fork in it or shower with one that's plugged in.
I actually made it through the month of March without a single entry on this weblog. I'm not sure if I want to consider that as an achievement but it's the first ever since the inception of this website.
Bring out the cake!
Ever since MySpace acquired music service iMeem, a few of the mashups that I’ve uploaded there have gotten lost in some digital wasteland. Worry no more. I’m releasing ALL of the mashups and remixes that I’ve ever done in freely playable and redistributable MP3 format. That’s right! You can finally download and keep remixes and mashups like Nikki (feat. Survivor) – Cantik Like Me, Nikki Vs. Shazee (feat. Christina Aguilera) – Selamat Tinggal Genie and Dayang Nurfaizah & Diddy (feat. OneRepublic/Timbaland) – Hilang (It’s Too Late) that were previously available only on iMeem. You can find more of those to annoy your neighbors on the Audio page. So don’t delay, collect them all today!
Everyday is made up of different battles. Sometimes you fight them not because you want to, but because you have to. Other times you fight for what you want but what you want isn't willing. Even worse, you still fight knowing very well that you can't have what you want. Rarely, if ever, that there's no battle at all, where everything works out perfectly that things just happen. So when you do win a battle, be happy with it and savor it well as it usually involves a fair share of disappointments before that. It makes you more appreciative of what you've been fighting for when the battle has been a long and difficult one, fraught with so many failures before victory is achieved. Especially when the fight is for things that really matter in your life. Like pride in your work. Or your friendship. Your family. Your loved ones. Or most importantly, yourself really.
Just keep the faith when you're still duking it out there on your own even after all these years.
You'd think I'd let 2009 slip away without an entry for December, eh? With everything that went on throughout the year, I actually took a very long overdue break from everything during the whole month of December in my bid to fix the most difficult thing I've ever had to fix, i.e. myself. Rather than trying to find myself by going elsewhere, I actually did the opposite by going nowhere and did absolutely nothing but daily errands and reconnecting with people that matter, i.e. family and friends. I won't bore you with details of it but I'm thankful that I did manage to find that clarity I needed to get in touch with myself again (although I still remain untouched by anyone else). There was also a discovery of purpose that I really want to take further steps on but that's just tempting fate at this point in time. Trying to remind myself that good things do come to those who wait, though I don't think I want to wait too long that I'll miss the boat altogether now.
And so in just a few hours, 2010 will be upon us. You may go, 2009. I forgive you. I want to move on.

This is where it all started. SMSS is where it all started. Di bumi SMSS inilah saya mendapat inspirasi hidup saya. I am not saying this because I have to speak in front of all of you. I am not saying this because the organizers have told me to “Izham tolong cakap bagus-bagus pasal SMSS and pasal macamana SMSS ni tolong Izham dalam kerjaya Izham sebab ni Homecoming Dinner”. I am saying this because it is true. This is where it all started.
