My January Will End With a Great Start

Just got my copy of Final Fantasy XIII-2 from Gamestop! I also bought the Strategy Guide (Collector's Edition) with it, since I got my refund from the price drop of Resident Evil Revelations (It's $40 now). They have discounts if you buy a guide with the respective game and another discount if you have the Pro Membership card. I'm a happy person right now...How long has it been since the last time I played a good JRPG? That's why this game makes me really excited.

I just started playing it, and there are a few things that caught my attentions:

1. They provide a Beginner's Primer, a summary for what happened during Final Fantasy XIII (divided by chapters). It's a nice addition for people who never played the original, and also for myself since the story doesn't really make any sense back when I played it.

2. This might be the first time a Final Fantasy game has a difficulty setting (I might be wrong though), although only Easy and Normal modes are available. From the reviews I read, the conclusion I got is this: don't ever change the difficulty into Easy. Yup, you read that right.

3. Some sweet extras are given to those who has the save file for Final Fantasy XIII, including themes for your PS3/360 and some hidden treasures in the game. Not sure if you need to complete Final Fantasy XIII first or you only need the save file. I think it's the latter.

Well I am working tonight and tomorrow night, so I won't be able to concentrate to play it maybe until weekend. Also goodbye Modern Warfare 3, we'll meet again someday.

On the side note, I also went to bookstore to get my textbooks. Thank God I got them cheaper by renting the books. I still need to get one more book before this weekend :( The textbook for Biology is freaking thick! Plus expensive too...At least I can start doing self revisions from now.


  1. You make me jealous!


  2. that's my purpose mwahaha

    and you should look how much Hope has grown up, I'm sure you'll love him mooooore

New College Life In UKM

After intentionally abandoning my blog for around 6 weeks, I think it's about time I write something about what is currently happening in my life.

Since the last time I updated, I haven't done anything much. I met some of my friends, and mostly spent my time with my families and explaining to every single one of them about "why" am I not returning to the States. Most of the them accept the fact easily and told me to be strong, work hard in the future and don't make the same mistake (which usually just simplified to "don't play games too much")

Being Different Is Lonely

From our ages, I know that I am different from most of my classmates. Naturally, most of them are three years younger than me, but that is not the problem. In fact, I had the most fun surrounded by them. They don't treat me differently just because I'm older. I think I am blessed with the fact that there are others who are older than the average (those who were born in 1993) in the batch.
I think I am not as matured as someone of my age should. But then again, there's no guideline on how matured a person should be or how you to be a mature person. Though my guidelines are basically these two: when you can prioritize and you can be responsible towards your actions. I don't know if I have these two qualities, but I know I am working towards it, slowly but surely.
Anyway, being older doesn't make me automatically different from the others. But there are certain things that make me feel.. different, and sometimes isolated. Like at this moment of writing, I am overwhelm…

Death in the Community

All of my housemates returned to their parents' house this weekend since we have public holiday on Monday. I stayed because my mother is not home and I have exam on Tuesday.

I don't mind being alone (isn't it weird for an attention seeker?), but it is too quiet in the house so I went to the nearest surau for Zuhur prayer. To my surprise, there were a lot of people there, and the main prayer room is full, compared to the usual only 3-4 rows of jemaah.

The prayer went as usual, and I think I had more peace being surrounded by people (hoho). After the prayer, the imam announced that we will be making a prayer for the recently deceased (solat jenazah). No wonder there are a lot of people.

Looking at the scene, I can't help but remember the day when my father passed away. His body was carried from Kluang, Johor to Shah Alam, and brought to a surau nearby for solat jenazah. Today's event reminded me that a community is very important for our well-being. Just imagine, ran…
