30th

So yeah, I finally hit the big 3 (or as PeiWen said, “Welcome to the 3-series club”) There was a time when 30 years old seemed far away, but nowadays it feels like time flies faster.

First headed to office to (pretend to) be surprised by a birthday cake celebration. (This happened last year and the year before that)

While I usually spend my birthdays like any other day, this time I bought myself a toy…

… PlayStation 4. 🙂 Because the PS3 is spoilt.

Starting off with two games – Until Dawn and The Last Of Us. Mortal Kombat X was sold out.

I was just thinking: in my schooling years I loved playing video games a lot – had plenty of time for it, but yearned for the cash to spend on them.

Today, I can spend on entertainment without a flinch… only problem is: not much for time for it!

Partly because games nowadays are going towards ‘open world’ and playing time gets longer and longer. Games today aren’t as linear as before where you can finish in just a few hours tops. Some can take days, and that’s if you’re committed!

But the gamer in me still hasn’t outgrown; when I’m not working and when I’m not outdoors, this can be my entertainment at home 🙂

Operation White Rhino III

Spent the weekend away from phone and Internet to join a 2 day Airsoft game in Indonesia.

This is my third time back in this army camp, and it had been a cold, rainy game – alternating between the jungle and local residence nearby.

This was the least enjoyable MILSIM of the three times I came here – partly due to the heavy downpour, but there was significantly less fire fight, and more walking in the woods at night… under the heavy rain too.

I’ve shared my feedback with the Organizers and understandably there’s no such thing as a perfect game; I hope there will be more action the next time I come here. But if anything, it was still a much needed break from my Online Business. I’ve gotten a lot more busy this year; this is practically the third time I’ve played Airsoft ever for 2016. Before this, I’ve played frequently – at least 1-2 times a month – for the last 7 years.

Until the next MILSIM…

Putrajaya Morning Drive

Right after party night, comes an early morning drive – what a happening weekend! Again, it’s not all the time I find an occasion to dress better than usual. The morning drive was just as rare.

Thus the morning drive doubled as both photography takes and also driving lesson for Charis! She’s got a driving license but rarely drove as she worked in Singapore for a few years.

Here’s driving lesson in progress with the Ultimate Driving Machine…

Nina Ray’s Birthday Party

It’s not all the time I get invited to an occasion to dress well! Attended Nina Ray’s 41st birthday party at a bungalow in KL.

Also here’s a video of me and Charis dancing Salsa. The result of my 1-hour crash course training 🙂 But of course, Charis is a more advanced dancer – she was just dancing to my pace.
