Curvy!

So after a long battle with the post office, i finally got my package. remember that submission i did for that aussie magazine? yes it has flown several seas (or air borders) to get to me, and although it has reached my hands in a slightly tattered state (the package was already ripped open, prolly searching for the oh-so-outdated anthrax), the book looks a lot better than i expected.






i'm on page 123. i like the number yes i do.


got no idea where it's distributed since honestly dont think ive seen any previous editions of curvy around before.
then again i doubt romania gets many artbooks, so. meh.

i'm still sad that i didn't get to go to the gallery opening and launch though. the pictures they had on the YEN site look like they had a blast. ;_;

uh. oh and in the list there's another malaysian other than me! awesome =D

hate list

i began listing down the things i hate and i began to hate even more, quality and quantity. and i hate the fact that i know for a fact there are so many people that would be offended and deem me politically incorrect, or just incorrect in a general way. well suck it up because opinions can never be incorrect and i can say this - my opinion is that you're an asshole. i would love to go into detail to what kind of asshole you may be, but everyone of you is so special in their own assholic way that it's really unfair to describe A asshole as B asshole when A asshole might actually be a Z asshole. wait what? vicious cycle of assholes, you guys always get me.
as this post climbs down i'll probably actually update my list. so leave me be and let me hate the things i hate.

what about that? have a nice ******** day!
this city makes me sick.
