REFLECTION

Peace be upon you my brothers and sisters.

Previous posts were deleted by me today. mostly those consisting vanity and inappropriate rants on petty things. i would like to start with an apology to those I've hurt and done wrong to. i hope you (kind humble beings) would forgive me. yes you, you, you and you. i forgive all of you. ok :) however, if you you really don't want to forgive me, you don't have to. you don't even have to like me and probably some of you might hate me till the day you die. lol. but at least i am now taking this opportunity to ask for forgiveness. it's never to late to ask for forgiveness anyway (i believe). (wah i typed so many of the word 'forgiveness' in this paragraph.. huhu MUST STRESS on that cause im really serious!!! huhuhu) why am i doing this??? God have showed me love by sending me one of his angels and i wanna be thankful to him for that.

Secondly, as a woman, my biggest sin would be vanity. don't we all want to look pretty? we want this and that so much that we fail to realize that what we look like to those that matters don't matter. physical attraction could just go as far because one day, all beauty would be lost. what do we have then? nothing. yes nothing.

So, lets start with nothing and see how far we'll go because behind that every mortal living soul, there's a bigger entity whom millions of people seek to when in chaos, misery and happiness. it's time we reflect upon ourselves and start to be thankful with what we have instead of trying to be in a rat race with something that's temporary and insignificant.

may peace be upon you
:)

LATE OF THE PIER 'BEST IN CLASS' (SOULWAX REMIX)



such a dizzy and disturbing video. can't get enough of soulwax nonetheless.

DEFINITION OF THE 'SHEANDROID'



A lovely girl asked me what's the meaning of sheandroid.

in summary, the concept behind the name sheandroid was derived from the word 'she' as in female(myself) and 'android' which means a 'humanoid' or 'artificially created being that resembles a human being'. in context, by my understanding, when i blog, it's through a form of media. the internet. my blog is just a collective of codes and pixels that are stored in a place. you don't hear it directly from me but through a virtual space that anyone can log into and interact. so by saying she android i'm actually saying my android. 'she' is just another way of saying her (her as in mine) and the word 'android' represents my artificially created being which sole purpose acts only as a medium for a virtual interaction without loosing the characteristics of what i would actually be like in reality. :D

owh ya follow me on formspring :D

in the mean time, i've been digging this video. so wtf!

MARK RONSON AND THE BUSINESS INTL FEAT. QTIP AND MDNR - BANG BANG BANG

mark ronson, QTIP and MDNR (the business INTL)
awesome! i love how the video has a japanese superhero style.
and check out his shoes. gah damn. so nice.

“The Business Intl” crew also includes D’Angelo, Boy George, Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, Alex Greenwald, Miike Snow, Ghostface, the Dap Kings, Spank Rock, Rose Eleanor Dougall, Wiley, MC Pill, and a dude from Kaiser Chiefs.

MY FIRST ATTEMPT ON 3D MODELLING









my house inspired by Takao Shiotsuka Atelier silent house.

I LOVE MINIMAL JAPANESE ARCHITECTURE!

first attempt on doing 3D in 3Dmax. reminds me of the sims.

owh ya, i was watching a documetary on designers in class the other day and it got me thinking that most people would say to think outside the box. i believe we should throw away the box and start from nothing. why do you need a box anyway? kankankan. like function and practicality over creating mindless junk that we designers keep on creating. there's a whole debate that i could talk about. hmm.

like if a phone is good enough why do you still need a casing for it? what's pop my bery for? those bb covers. i know you have like 5 different bb covers in 5 different colours. what for?? create junk only. if the product is good enough you dont need the covers. find a better solution/ material. scratch free the same material you people use for jet fighter air craft.. nasa came up with a few scratch proof materials if im not mistaken. then again itll be because of the cost. probably then the hp would be pricy-er but think about it. if we could find a solution and an invention of a better material to make the cover so it satisfies the needs of everyone without forking money to get things such as covers.. now i believe that's a better invention.

then again.. economic wise. probably they made the phone in such way that it would be a necessity to get those covers because it creates job opportunities for a lot of people in china and the rest of the world to make underpaid phone covers/ accessories in some dodgy factory. and phone companies will get more money when customers have to buy 5 different colours for their bb covers ;) good marketing strategy. but yeah... junk junk junk... so please we should really stop creating so much junk in this fucking polluted world anyway.

owh ya if you guys rajin, go and read on kenya hara. he's unbelievably inspiring ♥

and watch this video. :D

teaser for my self motion video: how i see designs. yeah sometimes in motion tracking and in measurements.

i'm almost done with school. i have 3D and this assignment left. submission is this friday. motion tracking might take me forever. but will probably just cheat or something and use stills.. not sure how to edit it yet. 3D rendering might take me a few sleepless days as well. crazy!

STATUS UPDATE

studying graphic design is actually nothing like what i thought it would be. today in class i was learning psychology. how different types of personality would effect a team. we talked about carl jung and siegmund freud. i like design management class. it's so interesting. the class is more like a facilitation on a certain design management topic. pretty much a discussion. you can curse, debate, shout fight and what not to prove your point. see damn interesting right. huhu

i feel so lazy lately. and yesterday i bought a movie ticket and watched it alone at 11am in the morning -.- i feel like i want to be alone the past few days. so depressing. i can't think straight and not inspired at all. what is wrong with me?? i seriously feel a lot of hatred and im supposed to pass all of this when i was younger since im no longer a teenager. lol.

school just started but im not ready for it. sigh. i should stop with all this hating and emo-ness and just be happy. seems like i need to resolve some unseen issue that's been bothering me so much first and figure out what to do next. haihh.

anyway, i am so loving this song. the video is alright.. but the song!! omg!!! best gila ok! AND.. omg.. is the guy hensem or what??? perfect ok.. chinese look, skinny, tall, with a beard. SIGH.. come say it with me! SIGH!

AND!!! LOOK AT WHAT HE'S WEARING... BLACK CONVERSE!!! omg.. dah almost a year i cakap nak beli... but still havent!! ok.. im so getting them this weekend!! huhu
