paint job

after a year in our second office, we decided to springclean, rearranging our workspace. it has been long overdued. time to throw out that dirty underwear that has been sitting in the closet, or that dried up leftover food on the keyboard. since we were at that, we decided to repaint our walls as well. something that makes it a little less corporate and a little more fun. we wanted something we could work and stare at almost everyday. we were too lazy to plan the design so we decided to paint it freehand as we went along. these are the pictures of the finished art as well as the tiring process. i ripped this off julian 'cos i can't be fucked touching up the pictures we took.

this is the left wall that we did... see my robot's kookoochiau... so cute! you 'light' up my life! haha.

and this is the one on the right. this is how it all came together. i hope you like it as much as we did. now, this is an office we can all work in. i likes!


divine pain

i got inked again last night. a pair of wings to be exact. it's not quite done yet with the colouring. impulsive? maybe. but i'd like to see that it took a good 10 years in the making. you see, the very reason that got me so interested in tattoos in the first place was because i fell in love with sarah's (the little girl who grew up) tattoo in the crow : salvation back then, but i totally forgotten about the wings when i had my first tattoo. i recently caught that film again and it made me reminisce those days. the goth, the rebellion, the attitude, the energy. i decided that it is about time.

i really like this particular picture of me with one side of the wing taken by sengkai. keng la that fella. haha. below are pictures of the process that jules took while i got inked.it's not really done up yet. i had to stop and continue on another session cos the cold sweat and fever was coming. so there you go. what do you think? my mum didn't quite share the same sentiments. haha.


halos of the sun

woo, my all time favourite band Fuel is back with a new album, angels and devils. the album cover art damn cun. i personally like shit like that. it's been a while since their last album. previous singer Brett, left the band and is currently replaced with new singer, Toryn Green. Green, however, isn't the only new member in Fuel. Fuel have also enlisted ex-Godsmack drummer Tommy Stewart, who had previously filled in for a handful of live shows after former drummer Kevin Miller left.

not that i don't enjoy their current stuff, but i really loved the entire package when Brett was still with them. the image, the look, the attitude, the nose ring, the emo voice. fooyoh! maut la. as for their new stuff, it ain't like how it use to be, but it's still worth the listen, which brings me to this particular song, Halos of the Sun. the name itself damn gila gaya. haha. so poetic.

the song is damn fucking ons! i likes. the energy of the track makes you feel strong emotionally. affecting chorus and high-octane, climaxing into a heartfelt and anthemic refrain. if you put a visual to the track, it'll be a man in silhouette standing in a sunset backdrop with arms wide open and his head tilted towards the sky. get what i mean? haha. songs like that make me wanna immediately pop up and start running for miles. the adrenaline rush sorta thing. it may not be your cup of tea but have a listen man. it may just grow into you.

yes yes, i'm sure the boys in the office are gonna have their turns in telling me how it's being overplayed in the office. well, there are always headphones ya know. if it doesn't work for you, bugger, just too bad. haha. go chew on a shoe. check out the lyrics.

Fuel - Halos of the Sun

With her there comes a hunger
Believing any minute all could break
She's looking out for something unknown
That could never be replaced

In a world consumed by madness
A world where I can barely breathe

Forsaken beauty lies again
These empty arms embrace what's come undone
A life together torn apart by halos of the sun

The loss becomes the lover
The emptiness becomes my everything
I taste her in the air
Feel her everywhere
I don't know how I'll ever feel sane again

In a world consumed by madness
A world where no one hears you screams

Forsaken beauty lies again
These empty arms embrace what's come undone
A life together torn apart by halos of the sun
Yeah, yeah



recently, i'm back to the soapy Korean dramas and songs again. sigh. they are like past romances, constantly playing at the back of your head and make you cry every time you think about them. haha. this is why i hardly listen to love songs, especially emo ones.

anyways, this particular Korean song has been around ever since my college days. KISS - because I'm a girl. i fell in love with the music video and the song the first time i saw it, and i'm falling in love with it all over again. haha. trust me, you'd do the same leh. it's videos like these that paints me a pretty picture of love, and i kinda like that, even if i don't ever find one. wa lau, the music video made me cry the first time i watched it, and it fucking makes me cry again even after so long. chipet.

yes yes, i'm a sucker for ideal renditions of love and stereotypical soapy romances. haha. not likely for a guy with tattoos, but so what. like fuck i care what you think. besides, i didn't say i'm some fucking macho dude. i'm the new age sensitive dude. i love crying while watching the sun set. lol. you oso will cry wan lor. you don't believe you watch la. be prepared with the fucking tissues man. haha. by then, you'll fuck yourself and wish that you understand Korean.

oh, and did i forget to mention that i'm so in love with the chick in the flick? haha. she so fucking cun la, or at least what i think is ideally cun. i wanna marry her. haha. sarangheyo.

well, this other video i found is actually the piano piece of the song played by some girl. i put it up 'cos i kinda like her arrangement. only problem is, the bitch gotta learn how to slow down. wa lau, she playing the song on the piano like she fucking running a marathon on steroids. sheesh. take a chill pill my dear. it is after all a love song. haha.


life is for the living

some people live to be happy, while others are just happy to live. i guess i'm a little of both these days. don't get me wrong, it's not like i'm prancing around the garden all day long and glad that it's not raining. most of my days are packed with high stressed decisions both creatively and financially, at the same time playing mother hen with the flock. but i like doing stuff (maybe not all at once) and sometimes the reward is just great looking at the faces of the people who are with you everyday. just that sometimes it gets a tad bit tougher than usual.

sometimes people ask me why do i even bother with a company of my own if the stress is killing me, and sometimes it seems like there is just so many boundaries. really, how could i want it any other way. you won't understand. it's just things i take to my grave on my own i guess. it's so much more fulfilling this way. i mean, you actually think you can rid yourself of crazy work and stress? what? a less stressful environment and less work? please la, everyone still has to cope with bullshit at some point. if you don't then, er, well, good for you. to think that i'd achieve this much without going tru it? must have fell out from the sky huh, and i was just fucking lucky to be there to catch the drop.

i'm not all that, neither am i God, nor close to perfect. i don't have all the answers and i'm certainly not your hero. i just wanna do better. i'm just a man who tries to make the right choices everyday. i make some good ones, i make some bad ones. but hey, i'm trying everyday. i don't have the strength for everyone else. but i guess courage is not about how tough and strong you are. on the contrary, courage is when you are afraid and you persist.

it's such a sin not to be me if i'm me. i'm a fighter. born to fight my way tru life and that's what i shall do. my life hasn't been smooth, but heck, it's a good life, and i'm fortunate for it. i want to live that dream that i dare to dream about. the point is that i will live. it just feels so good.


let's face(book) it

wah, facebook is getting lots of attention these days. no, seriously, im like wondering why. if you don't know facebook by now, then you are probably an even bigger idiot than i am, cos im probably the last to know. everyone is like asking me, talking about it big time and inviting me to join in. people are just fucking weird period. it's not that i don't think facebook is cute and shit. i even have an account just to fuck around with. haha. you can actually adopt a pet and open an aquarium which you can't personally feed by the way. my poor little pet is starving. help feed the poor little bastard la.

it's almost like someone said, let's all jump off a cliff, and everyone agreed and joined him. in this case, it ain't exactly jumping off a cliff. ok, maybe i got too carried away with the metaphors, but you know what i mean. i mean, what's with the commotion? let's just face (pun intended) it, friendster is phasing out. sad but true. and as for me, i'm some regular dude who just love familiarity. i conform to it. yes yes, we all need change some day, but i'd rather not if given the choice. haha. i guess i'll just have a little of both. add me, add me. haha. joeykhor@gmail.com. like they say, can't beat 'em, join 'em. so fuck that. let's just facebook it.


the way I are with this track

usually i'm not a big fan of R&B or hiphop, but this track just gets to you. Timbaland feat Keri Hilson - The Way I Are. fuck, i'm really loving this! my body can't stop moving and swaying itself when i hear this. just fucking awesome! you'll just automatically start nodding to the beat. haha. damn ons la keri's voice. especially the part where she goes, "thug it out, till we get it right." i decided to download the album to check out the rest of the tracks. pretty interesting stuff.

i'm liking the one he did with falloutboy too. anyways, back to this particular track, this is one smooth song you can dedicate to some chick and tell her you ain't got no money but you'd fuck her anytime and still get away with it. yea right. haha. still, its a brilliant song! somehow it feels kinda old skool in some ways. me likey!!


again, someone i know passed away. another person i know is slowly withering away within the week. i hope they will be in a better place. i just choose to blog out these emotions i'm feeling. all i know is that it's pain and despair all around. it's not easy hearing a man telling you that he knows his time is up. i'm not gonna discuss about death. instead, i wanna celebrate and value life. please don't gimme your empathy. don't need it. i'm not the one who passed away, or with the loss. just wanna stop a while to smell the roses. bright red ones. cherish and appreciate.

no one said it was easy, it's a tough life, but it's certainly a beautiful one.



totally voo-dooo... this girl will charm the fuck out of you. yes yes, the queen of dooodolls, my dearest kaixin. and yes, i've been reminded that it's 3 'o's and not 2. sensitive subject konon. haha. we go way back. and yesterday we went out for lunch... or so it seems. sheesh. how come i keep getting conned into this again and again. first its mrs P and now the queen herself. mrs P, now that's a walking barrel gulper! i think there is a conspiracy or something. it's like, woo, let's fucking take turns with joey, he's an idiot. he won't know what the fuck hit him.

i find myself fucking drinking hoegaarden in broad daylight. not that it's a fucking problem, it's just that i don't do it. to me, it's such a sin to drink during the weekdays, and worst, in broad daylight. and here she is, this petite little girl, all sweet and smiley, charming me to drink. "drink la, drink la, it's just tea." yea right. tea my ass! haha. and for a minute there, i actually thought that it was. haha. fucking idiot! *smack. like doh!

likai joined us much later in the evening after work. birds of a feather man. haha. the moment she sat down, it's yada yada all the way. until of course her prince charming showed up. haha. control oni after that. kaixin was right though, likai is really awesome. she's really funny and entertaining. loved her company. i love it so much, i've decided to link her blog to mine.

we found ourselves sharing about things in life. so much grounds we could relate to. don't worry my dear, we all know you are a strong one. petite but strong. muahaha. stay true to yourself pretty. we wouldn't want it any other way would we? all in all, it was a great day catching up. it's times like this i wish it would last. we (well, mostly her) had a few mugs and a whole lot of laughter.

let's do it again soon ya. we'll get mrs P too. haha. crazy women. :P



to all my boys (and girl) at hue, it's about time, and i've never said it before, but yea, if i ever need to sing you my feelings, it'll be this entire song. oh, so touching, your creative director. i have my moments. haha. you might love it, you might not, but when you ever hear this song, i hope it reminds you of this journey with me, or you once had. this is the perfect song. the exact lyrics and the right tune. exactly the tone and manner i'll say it to you. excited and happy! hmmm, maybe with less shouting, but you get the point. haha. so come on, enjoy the ride with me. lift up those skirts and pettycoats, and run with me.

this is my song to you.

Red Jumpsuit Apparatus-Ass Shaker

I remember a year ago I was standing in the crowd
waiting for my chance to break through, my chance to live again
Now it seems I've found some friends

who finally understand what it takes
to make this dream come true, we'll be here till the end

Shake it, break it, get off your feet,
come dance with me and don't you fake it

Shake it, break it get off your feet,
get close to me and don't you fake it

Shout and scream my friends, connect with me and we'll pretend
this night will never end (wo oh) this night will never end
Just let go you'll see together we'll do anything
this night will never end (wo oh) this night will never end

Shake it, break it, get off your feet
come dance with me and don't you fake it

Shake it, break it get off your feet
get close to me and don't you fake it

Oh, wish I could thank you all for what you have done
and all of the things that you have shared with me.
Oh, wish I could take you all too where I must go
wish I could take you all I'll take you with my heart.

Dance, get on the floor,

shake, get on the floor,
break, get on the floor

Shake it, break it, get off your feet
come dance with me and don't you fake it

Shake it, break it get off your feet
get close to me and don't you fake it

I'm reaching out here to show you what we've been through
I think there's something we can share, that's completely new
or maybe I'm just insane
Shake it break it get off your feet
