I want to change the name of this blog

Wait wait wait, before you object. Let me explain why.

First and foremost, the word xtechbiz, has no meaning. I don’t even remember why I came up with that word.

Most of the famous/successful/good blogs have a proper name. And when I say a proper name, it doesn’t need to be something sensible. It just needs to have a meaning. Like, people would put their favourite things, or their names, or some words that make sense.

It’s usual fine if the name does not make sense, but it needs to be easy to remember. It also needs to not sound stupid. (when you say it out loud in your head)

To be brutally honest, xtechbiz fulfils none of those.

Also, the thing of having that senseless name for such a long time is starting to rub me off the wrong way. I’m fine with it as an email address or whatsoever, just, not a blog’s name.

For the first time ever, I’m going to have a poll. Please, if you’re one of the few who visits this blog regularly, just vote, it won’t take a minute. I have a couple of ideas. Of course, you could submit your own suggestions and I’ll take a look.

Vote please!

If the results is conclusive I’ll try my best to wrap up everything in 2 days (:

Editing a lot of pictures is quite tiring

DSC00512

Sadly, I’m home alone today. During holidays, if you’re not going out and there’s no food at home. Your diet becomes somewhat of a pain in the ass. I sent out a tweet hoping that people would come over and get me some food on the way.

Obviously, everyone’s too busy with their god damned lives.

So I resorted to instant noodles, and I thought, there’s no way I’m going to do that again for dinner. However, walking… is too troublesome. I thought, well, I guess I should practice my skates today, and at the same time, get dinner on the way home.

Just skating can get a little boring. So I took my camera out and see what I can do. Again, I should really get a tripod. I now understand why those hobbyist always bring a frickin huge tripod around.

Collecting eclipse is cool

Overkill is underrated

It all started a few years back in my secondary school, I had a friend called Micah. Now, Micah was a pretty interesting guy. He did lots of funny things but one of the most significant ones was that he always brought sweets to school. It could be mentos, chocolate, some gummy sweet, or more often than not, Eclipse.

In fact, out of all days I’ve seen him. There’s only probably a 5% chance that he didn’t have Eclipse with him. Also, he like to put it in his pocket, and if you ever carried a half eaten box of Eclipse in your pocket, you’ll be familiar with the

CLING! CLANG! CLANK!

That accompanies your every step. So during my last year, I decided that I can’t let this tradition die off. The revitalising sweets that you get during class, the rhythmic metal noise, the faggots who’ll always steal your sweets, I can’t let that fade off!

“Also, I really like the mints.”

What to do when you have nothing to do

DSC00437

A Yakult a day, keeps your bowel out of the way.

Wasn’t planning to do anything today. So it’s inevitable that I got bored. So I started taking random pictures. Sadly I only took 2 stuffs, and picked the best. Which of course, is Yakult, and my awesome phone.

DSC00438

Say what? ( =’o'= )

That’s so cute right.

So I realized, 2 pictures is kinda dumb. So here’s 1 more.

It is NOT a waste of money

Alright, I think my eclipse deserves to have it’s own post.


Nothing better to do

Dragon Nest on a 15" Laptop

Shall not talk about what I did today, except that I had 1 plain 1 egg prata, 2 slices of large cheese sausage pizza, 1 slice of large Hawaiian pizza. (Canadian Pizza)

Evening at SP basketball court

Um, here’s a picture I took the other day while practicing at SP.

Beautiful streak of orange across the sky. Could’ve taken a better shot but I was sitting down and feeling lazy.

I read on a blog recently,

“The best camera is the one that is with you.”

Couldn’t agree more with that. There are just so many moments in life that I find really beautiful. Often missed because I took my phone out too late, or I didn’t bring my camera along. Well, I would write more but my mind’s pretty blank right now.

Time for a wonderfully sensual sleep (:


Watch the sunri- light

Who knew that you can’t watch the sunrise on the east?

Yeah me neither. I did not know that Pasir Ris (park), though in the east location, is facing the north. So I missed it. Still, I managed to snap some shots of… sunlight I guess.

It was a birthday chalet for my classmate. Blah blah it was stupid, nothing to talk about that.
(but I’ll at least honour him with this picture)

DSC00345

Yes, that’ll be his birthday cake. (note: not bought by us)

Another note worthy.. note, is that we bought a bunch of durian related stuffs for him. Clearly because we knew that he was going to drink and get drunk. So we thought, why not take this opportunity and just K.O him with it?

Okay this is getting a little long, click on to see the sunlight~

Let’s climb the damn hill

DSC00178-2

“I climbed the Bukit Timah Hill,
because I can.”

First things first, it was steeper than I thought. There wasn’t really any picture I took that could convey how steep it was except for this.

DSC00144

Went with Z to test out my camera and he was just… practicing his skills I guess. Though I feel a little stupid holding a compact next to a DSLR. But that also means that I can take shots like this way easier than he could ^^

Honestly, this is a really boring place and there isn’t a lot of things that I could take picture of. I could, of course, keep taking shots like this.

DSC00206

But I find it really pointless to go around taking pictures of rocks and leaves. Our only saving grace at that time is.
