One Hot Mama

Posted by Ruok On March - 28 - 2007

Remember the card I bought?

Turns out she’s really one hot mama. I managed to OC her from 575/850 to a whopping 660/1000!

And she’s still purring like a sweet pussy.

And because of that I can finally play my Company of Heroes with all the bells and whistles. Woohoo!

All the bells and whistles


As you can see there isn’t much difference between running with all the bells and whistles and not. This is one heck of a card manz.

Short & Sweet

Posted by Ruok On March - 26 - 2007

I will be appearing in two plays in the above short play festival. According to the schedule, both of the plays will be held on 22 April. I’m still hoping that they can re-schedule one of them to 21st. 😛

Anyway, the plays are “Who’s Catherine Seah May Ann” and “Pure Sugar”, both in the Wildcard category.

I got an offer today to be in one of the Top 20 plays, but alas, I’m already committed to this two, and each actor is only allowed to do a maximum of 2 plays.

Still, its nice to know that I was good enough for one of the Top 20s. 😀

Update :

They’ve managed to re-schedule.  So, I’ll performing on two days instead.

Apr 21, Sat : Who’s Catherine Seah May Ann?
Apr 22, Sun :  Pure Sugar

Oh Happy Day!

The thing that bugged me the most, as I prepared for my audition yesterday, was the inexplicable reason that I couldn’t get to sleep the night before. Coupled with the stress of having to change my modem and dealing with the anticipated mobilisation call up, you might say I wasn’t in the best frame of mind for the audition.

This Is The Day

This is the day.

That The Lord hath made.

I will rejoice,

And be glad in it.

Thank You for such a wonderful day.

Early Birthday Gift

Posted by Ruok On March - 23 - 2007

I guess I’m treating the graphic card bought as an early birthday gift to myself.

8800 GTS OC Edition For those not in the know, this is a DirectX 10 card, real bleeding edge stuff. How bleeding edge is this? Well, there are no games that support DirectX 10 now, that’s how bleeding edge it is. Of course I didn’t get it so as to play Directx 10 games, I got it to replace my really cannot make it anymore 6800 Ultra.

And with this card, I’m finally inducted into the current wave of wide-screen gaming, and I must say I’m loving it.

For those with 24″ or larger monitors, I would recommend the 640mb version and if you are the rare few that is gaming on a 30″, you might want to invest in the top of the line 8800 GTX. If you do have such a large screen, you might even want to consider a SLI configuration for that and run every single detail maxed out, and be the envy of all your friends.

But if you do want to upgrade, I suggest waiting till April. A whole new range of Nvidia graphic cards are gonna be out, which usually means price drops on the existing cards now.

Yes, yes, including the one I just bought. Sigh.

Waddaya Know

Posted by Ruok On March - 23 - 2007

My first ever made for youtube video has now reached more than 10,000 views.

If you haven’t seen it, do watch out for the shock twist at the end.

Sigh, if only that many people watched my showreel…

I’m Weird Like That : Full Circle

Posted by Ruok On March - 22 - 2007

When I got tagged by Zeus and Serendipity to do the weird meme (pun intended), I thought I had done it before sometime ago.

Lo and behold, I did. Back then it was five, so now they bumped it up to six. Like that also song ah?!?

So ok lor, now you know five, so here’s the sixth :

I always come up with the title first. From blog entries to scripts, I will always think of the title first. To me, a good and clever title is extremely important, so much so that I’m sometimes guilty of giving it precedence over the content. No doubt, content is king, but there’s just something about titles that I’m fixated about. So I’ll decide on the title first and then decide on how to carry on with the content, instead of the other way round.

As for tagging people, I’ll tag the same people who didn’t respond the last time round, which is about four of them.

And tag these :


LMD (cuz since she started it for me, she should end it. Like that, then got full circle mah.)

Judging from the director’s emails and text messages, she sounds just as frustrated as I was that I didn’t get the role in the end.

And to think it was all due to some email technicality. Which had came about suddenly and then, mysteriously, disappeared suddenly as well.

I guess we aren’t meant to work together on this one. And I guess I was meant to get the role as well. Yup, just like my ad that was never aired, this one looks like another divine or otherwise intervention.


And the frustration I get from losing this role echoes that of having blown my chances with you.

It has been since been three months, and yet every time your favourite song is played I find myself thinking of you. And how I let my chance slipped by. Oh how!! I can’t explain it as well, but you know what, its really like there was a divine or otherwise intervention.

I guess we are really not meant to be either.


Perhaps, the role I was gunning for is cutting it a bit too thin. Fact is, the performance is near your birthday, and coupled with how “method” I tend to be when it comes to acting, doing this role might just pull me over the deep end of you, all over again.

At least that’s what I can think of as a reason for this intervention. So, yeah, maybe that’s why.

I’m still at a loss what came over me with P though. Doesn’t look like I’m gonna find out anytime soon.

Way Back Into Love

Posted by Ruok On March - 20 - 2007

All I want to do is find a way back into love. Oh indeed.

On another note, I think this is one of the best romantic comedies I’ve watched. Go watch it if you haven’t.

Was wondering if Haley Benett was an established singer already, and turns out that she’s not! A really good and impressive debut, I must say. Way to go Haley!

Oh I just realised Haley is also the name of my favourite Batman villain. No wonder I’m partial 😛
