Coloured Pencils

When I was in primary school, life was like not complete without a big box of coloured pencils.  You're not cool if you're just using a small box of Luna.  I wasn't cool till my sis got me this 36 Colleen coloured pencils. 

Box a bit rusty now


Topped even those with 24 Luna....even 36 Luna cuz' Luna only came with paper box, with just a picture of the ship on it. My Colleen came in a metal box with the most beautiful pictures on it.

The next thing I knew... I was so damn cool with all other classmates admiring my coloured pencils :p

They're very precious. I never drop them and never sharpen them with a sharpener.   I only sharpen them with a blade (...added even more coolness to it! Lol!).  I made sure I handle them the correct way (the correct way to take them out from the box) and made sure that the colours were in the right position - always put them back to the same spot! (or so I thought. The thing is, when I put the box in the bag, it tend to open sometimes and all the pencils got dislocated... couldn't keep track after that - I guess they're not really in place :p)


This box of coloured pencils are still with me... with some like never been used before.  I saw a note in the box... dated 1984!?  It's been 29 years!?  I tried using them and the colour is still very beautiful.

Thanks to my sis, I get to be cool a bit :)

Dancing In The Moonlight - Toploader

I love this song by Toploader. I've been using it as my ringtone for some years now. I always feel 'happy' listening to it :)


   

Dancing In The Moonlight - Toploader

We get it almost every night
When that moon is big and bright
It's a supernatural delight
Everybody's dancing in the moonlight

Everybody here is out of sight
They don't bark and they don't bite
They keep things loose, they keep 'em tight
Everybody's dancing in the moonlight

Dancing in the moonlight
Everybody's feeling warm and bright
It's such a fine and natural sight
Everybody's dancing in the moonlight

We like our fun and we never fight
You can't dance and stay uptight
It's a supernatural delight
Everybody was dancing in the moonlight

Dancing in the moonlight
Everybody's feeling warm and bright
It's such a fine and natural sight
Everybody's dancing in the moonlight

We get in almost every night
And when that moon is big and bright
It's a supernatural delight
Everybody's dancing in the moonlight

Dancing in the moonlight
Everybody's feeling warm and bright
It's such a fine and natural sight
Everybody's dancing in the moonlight

Dancing in the moonlight
Everybody's feeling warm and bright
It's such a fine and natural sight
Everybody's dancing in the moonlight

Dancing in the moonlight
Everybody's feeling warm and bright
It's such a fine and natural sight
Everybody's dancing in the moonlight

Dancing in the moonlight
Everybody's feeling warm and bright
It's such a fine and natural sight
Everybody's dancing in the moonlight

Dancing in the moonlight
Everybody's feeling warm and bright
It's such a fine and natural sight
Everybody's dancing in the moonlight

Samurai!

After watching Wreck it Ralph for don't-know-how-many-times, I thought of the games that I played with my brother when we were young. .... Ok...can't quite call it when we were young cuz' we were still playing when we were already working and I bet we'll still be if he didn't relocate to Shanghai :p

Anyways, one of our favourite games was Samurai Spirits.  We played it on PC and would also put on the Dr Alban CD to go with the game - it would sync and play the music as we fight. Imagine how hyped up it was with songs like It's My Life playing at the background :p  Though I have the PS version now, but I still prefer to play it on PC.  Too bad I don't have the game any more.   Not forgetting all the bashing on the poor keyboard! :p



I normally play using my favourite characters - Charlotte and Ukyo.  My bro's favourite was Nakaruru. It would normally piss him off whenever I use Ukyo. Lol! Cuz' it's annoying to see how a sick guy who's always coughing blood could beat him most of the time with just his sliding kicks  :p

...I miss you bro......
