To celebrate the launch of Guamuzik.com.my (they also have the main site, www.gua.com.my, ‘Gua’ as in me or aku in Bahasa slang, or also ‘cave’), the parties in charge of the website decided to stage a free mini concert (or ‘Supergig’) at the car park area of Stadium Putra in Bukit Jalil. It was held last week, 30th May at around 8:30pm. No, Hujan wasn’t playing, but the main act for the night (well, in my point of view at least) was Butterfingers, so that was enough to force me to attend the event.

Again, I did not expect the event to start on time, or 5 minutes later, so I decided to have dinner first with supaa_dry and his girl mate which he brought along. We managed to reach the venue at 9pm and after getting out of our car, we could hear Estranged midway into the song ‘Itu Kamu’ (the song which won the Anugerah Juara Lagu). As we were hastedly walking to the stage area

Ok, so you’ve graduated, now what? All things said and done, your degree doesn’t matter too much if you don’t actually go out and apply for a job. And with graduation season around the corner, the job market is gonna be inundated with fellow applicants – making the competition much tougher. But fret not, because here on www.lifeinkl.com, we have a few tips and tricks that should help you out.

But first a disclaimer: The tips suggested in here are merely that.. suggestions. I’m just recommending to you what worked out well for me, but as always, there’s no guarantee that it’ll work out. Use whatever is in here at your own discretion, and definitely feel free to make changes if you feel that you can improve on it. And cross your fingers and hope for the best!

Rumours spread real fast. Especially rumours regarding price increases. This afternoon, SMSes were flying around stating that the petrol price will increase, some stating up to RM3.20 and some, RM2.70. I was placing my bets on a 20% increase though, about RM2.30.

So, at around 5pm, people who are leaving work took heed of the rumours and visited the petrol station to fill up petrol at the price of RM1.92/liter for the last time. Does not matter whether it was empty tank of half tank, as long as there was money to be saved.

And there it happened, again, as always. Petrol stations jammed up with cars. Pump attendants were busy as heck, receiving payments, filling the petrol and directing traffic ensuring that chaos won”t happen (queue jumpers, etc). Roads leading in and out of the petrol stations were then clogged up, swallowing innocent drivers into the jam. Stubborn and ignorant drivers

LEGO 6212 Star Wars X-Wing

Posted by kenchill. Toys

When I was a kid, I used to play LEGO, lot’s of em. From castles and pirates to petrol stations to space-themed vehicles. I can’t really recall exactly at what age did I start or stop LEGO but it should be when I was around 7 to 12 years old. And yeah, I didn’t play with the Duplo blocks, just the normal LEGO. No LEGO Technics too.

Fast forward to a decade later around the year 2002 and there I saw it, while I was studying in Brisbane (Australia), LEGO Star Wars sets (well the huge ass LEGO Star Wars collector’s edition sets were way out of my budget) which were selling at ‘normal price’.
