Happy New Year! [Jan. 12th, 2014|10:54 am]
daredare
It's been like FOREVER since my last update :-) As usual, real life sucked the internet out of me. But heck, I need to keep this account alive, as well as to update it from time to time so that I can continue to feed my ravenous hunger of oddities, anime/manga and interesting bytes found all over livejournal and such.

Happy new year, and may 2014 be a joyful one to all!

Finally, 15th post.
Now I'm just another nameless, faceless person in the adult working world, mindlessly toiling away day after day meaninglessly (other than for the purpose of "having a job" and "earning a living"). Oh well... that's life, I guess. I still love my anime and manga...

Almost there, 14th post!
Cloud Strife is from FF7. I've played many computer games, but FF7 was the first one that made me fall immensely in love with gaming. Oh, I miss my gamer-girl days...

On to unlucky number 13th! Or not.
While I'm trying to download my daily fix of yummy mangas, I wonder about my little userpic called Cloud Strife. Cute guy, isn't he?

Moving on to my 12th post...
Dang, my internet connection is bad or is being throttled. I can't download my torrents, sob sob. Have to find direct download links... *stalks away*

Number 11th post.
I mean, why settle for something mainstream and so-called popular and, well, normal... when you can read (and watch) really good stuff that you really want, right?

The 10th post, still 5 more to go... huff huff...
Oh yeah, if you've seen my profile, you'd see that I'm watching tonnes of yaoi and adult-themed communities. Yes, it's that good.

Merry Christmas 2012, and Happy New Year 2013! [Dec. 25th, 2012|11:24 pm]
daredare
Just a short note here to tell the world that I'm still somehow alive and well :-)

It's been a year since any updates to this blog, and man, what a year it has been! Career-wise, I've taken yet another big step and life has been busier, more interesting and more fulfilling at the same time. I feel that I've reached a stage in life where I'm contented, happy, satisfied, and ready to pursue further. Mmm... Zen moment? My personal life remains pretty much the same, but life's good :-) My otaku side is still quite active, acting as a great counterbalance to my busy work life, though I've cut down on a LOT of things since then. Just a few simple pleasures in life, and that's what makes me feeling great.

Merry Christmas everyone, and have a Happy New Year!

NOTIFICATION

I hereby announce that I condemn CI YAOI - http://community.livejournal.com/ci_yaoi - for what they are doing. They steal download links and files from scanlation groups, post and reshare the files without permission from the groups. They have no respect whatsoever to the people who buy the books, scan and translate those projects.

I condemn them and I won't have anything to do with them. I don't tolerate such actions. I hereby state that I am not a member of CI YAOI community and I will never steal from any scanlation groups without permission.

Another year has passed. Oh my gosh, is it really 2012 soon? The year that was predicted to be the end of the world? *grins*

It's been an eventful year for me. My anime/manga/fandom/otaku-ish self is fading away little by little, and I'm really starting to launch myself into greater heights with my career, and hopefully, towards a better life.

This year I've accomplished much more than I expected, managed to achieve a more sensible work-life balance, found a deeper sense of inner peace, and best of all... I've had the opportunity to travel to all of South-East Asia (with the exception of Brunei). Another milestone reached! :-D

Still, I tried to take little breaks from "real life" sometimes. For example, spending a couple of hours immersing myself into some jpop/kpop/videogame music, watching a bit of anime (hardly, but I really, really, really tried anyway...), read some manga during the weekends, mindlessly surfing the net for oddities and interesting otaku news when I had nothing else to do, etc. It's not much, but it's like a nice warm bowl of chicken soup for the stressed up soul who's starting to wear down from the rat race.

The journey is far from over, but I'm not complaining. I think I've learnt to see things more positively and I've started appreciating the little things in life that makes everything special and worthwhile.

Merry belated Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone! :-)

2011 update [Jun. 5th, 2011|10:45 am]

So much time has passed since my last posting... sigh! My sincere apologies to anyone who may be watching or following this little journal. Real life had taken over, and this journal had been cast aside for years.

I'm posting just to make sure that people know I'm still alive, and for the communities that I've joined/trying to join - please rest assured that there's a real person with a good heart behind this LJ account! *smiles*

Summary of what happened in the past few years:

Career development and growth. Oh yeah. Good stuff are happenin' and I'm really loving my work life now, including all those stressful meetings, project deadlines, business travels and even office politics!

Kinda disconnected myself from internet presence and its super-busy social network, so that I can concentrate on the few really important things in life - family, good friends (in real life!), nature and all that is natural, humanity, peace, goodwill and harmony with the world. *laughs*

I stay away from ringing handphones and 24/7 postings from facebook/twitter. Nothing beats a nice quiet evening walk near a 'kampung' (village in Malay language), listening to playing children's laughter, delicious smell of curry dinners wafting in the cooling breeze, watching the fading light of sunset casting shadows on the grassy fields, and feeling at peace with your inner self.

Being a polite lurker. I haven't been active in this LJ, but definitely been actively using it to lurk around. Still a fan of yaoi and shounen-ai, I do regularly follow scanlation releases whenever I can.

Running a small side-business of helping anime/manga fans to get what they want. My shopping website in Geocities was wiped out with the closure of Geocities, but I still have my International Ordering sales posting in ComicFiesta Malaysia forums.

Come and take a look if you're interested! Generally, I offer help to purchase online goods and services using credit card and Paypal, for a small commission fee. Good customer service is assured, simply because I am also a shopper just like anyone else, and know what it's like to have a bad shopping service! *winks* My service is limited to Malaysia, but I'm also open to options overseas.

For further enquiries, you can e-mail me at ezee AT rocketmail DOT com.

Good things to come in 2008... [Dec. 31st, 2007|09:44 am]

Well, I finally, finally got my ass off the couch to fiddle with this rather inactive Livejournal account.

Over many years and even decades, I've accumulated a mindboggling number of accounts and posted stuffs everywhere on the internet. It's becoming a mess to keep track and manage these lil' babies, so I thought I'd list out my To-Do-In-2008 checklist :

Personal blog at Friendster's - to move into this LJ account, if I can figure out how. Simply because (1) I'm afraid my friends and even family members might chance upon the dreaded 18+ content that's so pervasive over there, and (2) I'm sick of keeping my blogs light and fluffy. I really want to start ranting adults-only stuff.

Move all my fanfiction from ff.net and other LJs to here. I'm going to start writing epic, disturbing or downright unconventional stuff, and I don't want to risk getting kicked out from any accounts.

Slowly move my pride and joy, the Ultimate Serena Lee's Yaoi Manga list to this LJ. I'm starting to hate Yahoo Geocities because HTMLing sucks.

Set this LJ to become a front-end interface with my y!Gallery account. Simply because I want to re-start my drawing career and I'll probably end up drawing 18+ yaoi stuff anyway. So NSFW, so it goes to y!Gallery.

And with the above, after years of hiatus, ENO Comics will finally be underway. I think I'll need to rename my lil' one-man doujinshi circle. ENO sounds like a brand of digestive, or some kiddie candy.
