Spoiling Myself!

I'm not the type that would spend RM10++ for a coffee, it is insanely overpriced and its only meant for the high society people. It is nice i agree, but i find it hard to find this as a reason to go to Starbucks even though i am a regular coffee drinker.

But today, i am sort of stuck in Low Yat Plaza waiting for my gf to finish her annual dinner. So the only place i can think off to kill time alone is to sit at Starbucks and online.

As i sit back relax, enjoying the jazz music and cool environment and taking a few sip. I suddenly feel like i'm in paradise and life is beautiful!

Especially while watching outside the glass window where people are busy with their life, but in contrast inside here i'm just relaxing and being idle, Damn... it feels good!

No wonder it's so expensive, you're paying for the experience too.

One should spoil and pamper themselves once in a while. A good rest is to prepare yourself for a tougher day tomorrow.

Horse Ridding

My first ever horse ridding experience took place in Mini Malaysia, Melaka.

It's quite cheap RM5 and they would provide you a helmet and a guide will guide the horse around a straight walk, u turn and head off back to the starting places.

As i approach the horse for the first time, i was a bit nervous because due to its size. It's a few times bigger than you, and luckily they're herbivore! They have this step ladder for you to climb up to and As i sit above the horse, i was surprised to see that it's quite high.

The ride was a bit bouncy and it's quite nervous at first because thanks to Christopher Reeve's incident i was holding tightly to my seat. Horse ridding is a bit uncomfortable for my little johnny due to the bounce mentioned but then after a while, you'll get use to it.

At one point, i was suddenly very tempted to hit the horse at the back and say "Gi Dee Up" but luckily i'm able to resist it as who know what might happen if i do so.

I began to imagine myself as a medieval knight on a horse and slaying my enemies beneath me with a sword. Wow, it's actually quite difficult to do! You'll need to handle both your horse and your enemy at the same time, no wonder it requires years of practice.

Which reminds me of the Mongolian Horse Archers which can fire their volley of arrows at full gallop! wow, archery itself already requires a lot of concentration, what to say some more you still need to control your horse. Really hard and amazing!

I heard that this horses are those ex-racing horses that either is too old to run, or is injured to run. So they end up being amateurs riders. Hmmm...thinking back now, i feel abit pity for them not being able to run freely in the wild, splashing waters apart as they cross rivers etc as seen in many movies or pictures of horses.

Anyway, it is a fun experience, i feel like i've achieved a great feat that day, something good to remember:)

Thanks darling for help me take picture:)

Captain Malaysia

I was doing a facebook quiz - Which Marvel superhero are you?

I got Captain America as my result.

My friend, Mike suggested that I just need to change the five star into fourteen star and add a crescent moon then I'll become Captain Malaysia!

As i was LOLly, (laughing out loudly) Inspiration struck me and i actually think this can be a good idea! Not me being a superhero of course, but the changing of the design.

It is quite easy to design Captain Malaysia due to it's flag similarity with the USA flag.

Actually since primary school i was wondering if our Malaysian flag is copied from USA.

So i rush and grab my pencil began to draw a rip off version of Captain America and incorporating my friend's idea and adding some design myself too. I figure that i should color it to make it more eye-catching, which i glad i did.

I was doing what typical Malaysian do best. copy-cat other country's work of art and turning it into our own. Yeah, Malaysia Boleh! Hey, before you complain, be reminded that after Captain America, there's also Captain Canada, Captain Britain.

Oh well, to spice it up, I didn't just stop at re-designing the star. I replaced Captain America's antenna wing to Petronas Twin Tower mini replica! The fourteen stars is very difficult to draw so i didn't draw it accurately. I even made up stories like actually on Captain Malaysia's chest there is a fourteen star shape scar that he obtained during the communist insurgency. Hmm...something like that to make it cool, i wonder if i should continue to imagine more and then maybe i'll get a complete story!

Finally, i've also decided on a tagline for Captain Malaysia!

Captain Malaysia, Every Country Needs a Hero!

You know, in case they decide to make it into a movie, a superhero movie is not cool without a cool tagline!

Things would not be so great if i did something that many people already did. So,I google it to see if i'm the first one to design it, but unfortunately someone else did it first. And the photo got copyrighted some more! Don't Play Play!

Oh Dammit! But anyway, ladies and gentlemen let me present you, my latest syiok sendiri piece of art, Captain Malaysia!

Teng, Teng, Teng! Oii...please clap hand lar~
