Alan Walker – Faded (Spuds Remix)

You’ve probably heard Alan Walker’s hit single “Faded.” But instead of a hard-hitting beat on the original track, our remixed version of the song has a more chill and melodic vibe to it. It is a totally different take on the song, so we hope you enjoy this one!

Spoken Truth By Grab & Taxi Driver

There has been an on-going battle between Grab/Uber drivers and taxi drivers. Taxi drivers are complaining that Grab/Uber drivers are taking their customers and are making it harder for them to earn a living. The taxi drivers have protested – some have even gone to the extent of using violence to express their frustration.

In this video, I interview a budget taxi driver and also a Grab driver. This gives us a fresh perspective on the current situation as both drivers mention some things that are not well-known to the public.

The Mind. The Ground.

Wrote this while I was having as what people would call “the monkey mind.” The flow just came, and I am proud and excited to share this with people!

There’s no where to run. No where to hide.
I’m inside you. I’m the demon in your heart.
Polluting your gorgeous soul.
Who am I?
I am your mind. Or am I?
I am the one that keeps you awake at night.
I am your computer, your phone, your internet, your friends.
The one that keeps you coming for more.
Am I really your mind? Or am I just some unhealthy part of you called addiction.

We will win gold!

They say sports brings happiness. Watching your favourite athlete score the winning goal at the very last second, or nail that final point, is a different kind of special. Well, that’s probably true, unless you’re a fan of Arsenal and/or the French football team and/or Malaysian Badminton. Then the emotions you feel is the kind that turns beautiful babies into murderous psychopaths. One minute you’re a sucking on a nipple, puking cuteness, next minute you’re killing Jewish people.

Okay, I’m sure there was a point to that opening paragraph. Right. Malaysia lost the big one, again. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t one of those articles where I go on a 1000-words bitch rant. You can read my article on Arsene Wenger, for that. I’m proud of Goh Liu Ying & Chan Peng Soon, I really am. It’s the first time in Malaysian history we’ve gone this far in mixed doubles badminton. Getting SILVER at the Olympics is an amazing feat that only a select few will be able to take to their graves. It’s also important to note that most people (myself included) did not expect this highly talented but also highly inconsistent pair to actually make it to the finals. So, eat shit Dedpewl!

But this is pretty much same shit different day for Malaysian badminton. We lack the mental fortitude when it matters most. It really shows. When we fumble, we get nervous and we’re never able to recover. That is the Malaysian problem, regardless of what sport it is. Believe me, it translates to e-Sports too. Fanatic fans will know what I’m talking about. Heck, forget sports, Malaysia’s mental fortitude, or lack thereof, is very apparent even in our day to day lives. It’s deep rooted in our culture. Something needs to be done. We have to change.

Bullet-point Philosophy for Bolehland

I began tweeting in 2011. It’s a goddamned glorified waste of time – you should try it. Nothing like keying in 140 characters to get one’s mind off that 10-mile traffic jam or 10-page office e-mail or that grade-10 hot babe/hunk.

Anyway, I hope the following selections of my tweets over the past half-year make you smile, think, righteously pissed-off, “inspired”, blahblahblah.

 

  • A website has 8 seconds to grab attention. An FB post has less than half that time. How long do public speakers n educators think THEY have?
  • Parenthood: When you rejoice whenever absolutely nothing happens.
  • Of all the superheroes, surely the Thing got the worst deal?
  • When you refuse to ‘like’ someone’s FB updates, but you refuse to Unfollow them too. #getalife
  • Unless they crap on you, it’s impossible to be pissed off by small birds.
  • The one thing which WON’T make me calm? Some suited ‘high-powered’ idiot in the paper urging me to remain calm.
  • We need a sign in university classrooms: “Responsible profanity is allowed.” #education
  • Leonardo DiCaprio is proof you don’t need a good body to become a Hollywood elite. Heck, you hardly need a body at all.
  • I’m starting to suspect that adolescents today are repelled by linear thought. #education

Relationships

I think being in a relationship with yourself is very important. Isn’t it funny how a relationship status is so important nowadays? Look at us – we’re fighting to fit the expectations of society in ways of appearance, ways to behave, what you should or should not do. Are we all not tired of living up to other people’s expectations? Shouldn’t we be only pleasing ourselves instead of trying to live up to other’s ridiculous expectations that are infinite and unsatisfactory? Why are we doing this to ourselves? Torturing ourselves for all these silly things just so we can fit in?

Now, what was I saying? RIGHT – HAVING A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOURSELF IS CRUCIAL. So what if you don’t have a so called ‘BAE’? So what if you’ve been single for a long time? You’re allowed to be, and you shouldn’t have to answer to people who don’t know how to mind their own business. Please don’t ever compromise yourself for that relationship status. Never ever do that for anyone. It’s not worth it. To be frank, I did and I learnt it the hard way. We’re not perfect, loves, but it doesn’t mean we should do things to harm ourselves because in the end, the only people we’re hurting are ourselves.
