Twisted Theory

I've always come across a lot of art works on the school building. There were drawings, some with motto, and some with motivational phrases.

There’s one motivational phrase which I stumbled years ago when I was teaching in a rural school in Sarawak. The phrase goes as:

Semakin banyak kita belajar, semakin banyak yang kita tidak tahu

Which can be literally translated as,

The more we learn, the more we do not know

The first thing I asked myself was “Why learn?” LOL! The phrase was written in a school some more! Kind of misleading right :P

Well, the original means of this phrase is to tell students that the more we learn, we’ll realize that there’s a lot more that we have yet to know.

These few days I was surfing online (school holiday ma~~) and found another similar phrase but it is in a form of equation. I bet a lot of you have seen this but I think it’s pretty amusing. Anyway, enjoy :D

the universal formula for power

Therefore, substitute Power with knowledge and Time with money. This is what we get...


Well, according to this formula, we must learn as little as possible so that we can learn infinite money! Just another twisted theory -_-"

p/s: the person who created this theory is pretty brilliant, isn't it?

Mr potato's reminder!

Yesterday i got this email from "Mr potato"! I thought it was something good but it turned out the otherwise =_=".

click to enlarge!

It says that digital touched-up pictures are not allowed! Which means my previous Mr Potato's picture entry will be disqualified!
After discussing few ideas with Egg through phone, I decided to make my own original version of Mr Potato! Before i show you my latest picture, let flash back my previous photo entry

This is obviously a digital touched-up picture =_="

So I start to gather my materials needed! I dig around my house for recycle staff then went out to buy few packets of potato chips and these is what I got for myself!
(erm..why the story hanged half way??)

Since this is part of the Mr Potato Contest, so i decided to put the whole story of the making of "the real Mr Potato" in our no compromise for mister potato fiesta 2009 's post!

Make sure you read my newly updated post if you wan to know how exactly I look like being a real Mr Potato :P

No Compromise for Mister Potato Fiesta 2009

Once upon a time, there was a young man named “Yolk” who worked as a potato peeler in Mister Potato’s organization.

In fact, the potato peeler’s position was even lower than the rubbish throwing uncle!

However, this never stop Yolk from pursuing his dream to become the #1 man in Mister Potato Empire! It was never an easy task to go to the top position in such a big empire!

Yolk worked very hard everyday peeling off all the potatoes hoping that someone will notice his potential.

One day, a potato genie showed itself before Yolk. The potato genie told Yolk that it can help Yolk to climb the corporate ladder and become the #1 man in Mister Potato Empire. However, the potato genie warned yolk that he must not compromise the quality of the potato chips. He must make sure that every single piece of potato chip must be tasty, crunchy and nice!

Yolk swore that he would not compromise low quality potato chips in front of the potato genie. Feeling impressed by Yolk’s oath, the potato genie starts to show Yolk the steps.

1st – you must pluck and differentiate the good potatoes and the bad potatoes. Only the good potatoes are worthy to be used to make potato chips.

2nd – you must go around the globe to find out other’s favourite types of potato chips

3rd – practice your slicing skills until you can slice 14 thin slices out of 1 potato and finish 3 potatoes in 20 seconds.

4th – memorize all the details on the packaging (the canister of Mister Potato Crisps)

5th – train you hearing! Differentiate crunchy or limp potato chips out of 10 chips in 20 seconds (just by hearing!)

6th – Test you potato chip making knowledge

7th – memorize the laughter of Ortega, Mister Potato’s assistant by using Q, W, E, R, and T

8th – Final test! Dress yourself up as a Mister Potato!

Finally, Yolk became the #1 man in the mister potato’s empire. Despite of his position, he still went around the potato chip factory to make sure that all slices of potato were in the best condition. He never compromised the poor quality potatoes chips. With Mister Potato’s tasty, crunchy and nice potato chips, everyone lived happily every after.

Give this flash a try :)

When I woke up, I made up my mind to become a REAL MR POTATO!

So I start to gather my materials needed! I dig around my house for recycle staff then went out to buy few packets of potato chips and these is what I got for myself!

1. Brand X potato chips (pretend that you don't recognize the brand >_<)
2. Mister Potato Hot and Spicy potato chips
3. A piece of cut-off cloth from an old red T-shirt
4. A fake mustache made out of old stocking! (Gosh! I'm sticking it underneath my nose!)

5. A toy pistol which my dad gave me when I was in primary school (erm..15 yeas ago i guess :P)

6. Last but not least, a hand made Mexican Hat (with a hole -_-")

So here's few pictures that I've taken!

(a) Limp chips! No compromise!

(b) I won't allow Limp Chips in my territory!

Well, which one you think looks better? In fact, I've submitted (b). Anyway, there's still 3 days before the voting date! Do let me know which one looks better so that I still have the chance to update my photo :D

Do give me some of your votes ya!
Voting date: 29th Nov - 5th Dec 2009
Vote can be cast once everyday!

p/s: I think i look more like Ortega rather than Mr Potato -_-" (too thin!)

My "Emo" post

There's not much contest lately so I'll just post something personal here :) Just to let you know my story with Egg. Love story perhaps? Haha!

We knew each other since we were in form 6. (erm..8 years ago - guess how old am I?)Then we continued our tertiary education in Sabah (UMS) and that's when we started our love story until now! Well, it's not easy to maintain a relationship and there's always quarrels. Seriously, there's no couple who can avoid from disagreement of ideas. Perseverance is important.........WHAT AM I BABBLING ABOUT?!

Sorry for being a little bit too "emotional" here. Well, there's an explanation for this!

Did you realize that you don't really see Egg's writing in recent blog post? Previously, Egg did all the writings and I only did the cartoon stuff. But for this few weeks, I've been doing all the writings and drawing! Why?! Because Egg went for her job training in KL for a month! I know to some of you out there, one month means nothing but for me, one month is like YEARS~~ So these few days, I've been digging up some old photos and flash that I've create all these years.

I won't be showing all of the flashes here as most of them were badly done -_-" (lack of skill and knowledge)

Here's one of my favorite and it was done in year 2006. At that time, I secretly did this flash animation and send it to Egg as a gift!

*please click the "half naked figure" to continue!

Let me do some commenting after looking at my past product-

1. The drawing is lame! haha!

2. I still remember the content clearly and it's one of my best writing! (for your information, my English s*cks! That's why Egg did all the writting for our blog -_-")

3. I like the music so much! It's one of the instrumental song by Mayday (a Taiwanese band)

I know this flash is not that impressive compare to others, but I believe that the efforts counts :)

Well, do drop me some comments on my flash! :)

My Top 5 Treat List

I (yolk) work as a secondary school teacher in Kuching. I have been earning a tiny amount of salary every month (really!).

Out of my salary, 60% goes to housing loan, 10% goes to transportation and 10% goes to family fund. Left 20% for daily expenses and savings

I ride a little blue motorcycle (Suzuki) which were bought 3rd handed during my years in University (5 years ago)
I have been using an old desktop computer which was bought in 2003! It keep hangs and restart by itself. I had to format it 2-3 times in a year. Further more, when I use Adobe Flash CS4 to draw, it will suddenly shut down even before I save my drawings.

Therefore, I have no choice but to use back the old version of “Macromedia Flash MX 2002” to draw -_-".

Despite of my condition, I do treat myself something nice once in awhile. Erm..let me think.

I brought Egg and her parents to Genting Highland for holidays....few years ago,

I bought a double storey terrace house for me and my future family!
still under constructions

On 2nd thought, I never really treat myself anything! -_-"

Anyway, here's My Top 5 Treat List which I really wish for!

1. Dell Inspiron 13 Laptop

2. A brand new car to replace my little motorcycle. I’m not greedy, Proton Saga SE is enough.

3. Get my whole house air-conditioned (especially bedrooms and living room)

4. Go to Disneyland Park (Anaheim), California with egg. (It is me and egg’s dream vacation)

5. A Fender American Standard Jazz Bass guitar

Anyway, treating myself with a Dell Inspiron 13 is my top priority now. If I have the money, I would definitely get one for myself. As I mentioned earlier, my current computer is 6 years old! (The average life span of a desktop computer is about 3-5 years) There are just too many problems with this computer such as frequent hangs, too many errors with software, too slow, too space consuming, etc. I need a computer which has the performance, the size, the connectivity and the price!

I need a computer which allows multitasking such as running Adobe Flash CS4, Adobe Fireworks CS4 and Sony Sound forge 10 at the same time so that I can create better arts (cartoon, caricature and animations). I need a powerful graphic card and a wide vivid display to create the perfect animations.

My current computer is taking up too much space in my room. I need a spacious place to do my work so that I will have inspirations to produce creative arts.

I need to surf the internet for ideas and resources frequently. Therefore, wifi is very essential. At the same time, I need to do a lot of transfers from other input devices (camera and hand phone) and a big hard disc space to store all my files.

Last but not least, I need a value plus computer as I earn just enough for my monthly expenditure.

Surprisingly, Dell Inspiron 13 meets all my needs!

Performance + Wide vivid display
It is built with an Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo processor which supports multitasking. It also has an improved graphics performance with ATI Mobility RadeonTM HD 4330.

It's only 13.3 inches which makes it very portable and saves space!

It has built-in connectivity with a media card reader, HDMI and eSATA, Enhanced wireless supports up to 802.11n connections and Dell™ Webcam Central

for your information, Egg is now in KL for her job trainings :)

From RM2,299 (definitely a thumbs up for a notebook with intel core duo processor). It is well balance between performance and price.

Why wait? Treat yourself a Dell Inspiron 13 now!

By the way, you are given a special coupon code 7ZQVQF2RLZRKW3 from Dell that would allow anyone who makes purchase of a Dell Inspiron 13 (S510701MY) with RM100 Instant Cash Redemption!!. This promotion is only available online or by calling Dell at 1800-88-0301. This coupon code expires on 10th Nov 2009.
