Don’t Sweat It!

When you live in a hot place like Malaysia, you sweat.

Sweat makes your skin all sticky.

Contrary to popular opinion, showers don’t help. They’re only there to get you wet.

No matter how many showers you take in a day, it doesn’t help alleviate the fact that you’re sticky – because that’s how you’re going to stay.

Every time you take a shower, it’s not helping how sticky you are. What it is doing, is washing off the previous day’s stickyness so you can build up a new layer – paving the road with a red carpet for more sweat; more stickiness.

The solution?

Don’t sweat.

I’m not kidding, either. If you don’t sweat, you don’t get sticky, and it’s as simple as that.

Keep cool, and don’t sweat. Works every time, although it can be a little hard to achieve.

Air Con helps a massive amount, as does dehydration. When you’re dehydrated, you don’t sweat (as much), but you also feel like crap 100% of the time, which is why I recommend copious amounts of air conditioning.

So – lesson for the day?

Don’t sweat it.

Happy Australia Day

Apologies for the lateness of this post; I can’t get access to the Internet every day, much less if I’m posting from my iPhone… In any case, here it is anyway:
Happy Australia Day.

On this most excellent of days, it’s a shame I can’t be in Australia to er… be Australian (what else do you do in Australia?). Patriotism and all that, you know?

In actual fact, this year’s Australia day coincides with Chinese New Year’s Day. It doesn’t happen all the time, as Chinese New Year’s Day doesn’t happen on the same day each year…

In any case, my Australia day was spent doing pretty much crap all…

Woke up blastedly early, washed, ate, went to some exceptionally boring church service for Chinese New Year’s day, ate lunch, slept, went out with cousins to return a mahjong set (that failed – no reciept, d’oh), ate some spicy deep fried chicken from Maccas with curly fries (also with aforementioned cousins), had an epic gambling session with more cousins where we played the non Texas Hold-Em version of poker, blackjack, and Big 2 (overall, I won RM 3 – the Australian equivalent of about $1.20 😛 ). Finally, watched some Dragon Ball Z (up to the Android saga now), blogged, and it’s now 1am on my birthday, and I’m sitting here typing this in the dark on my iPhone…

Ahh, perfect.

As for you, I hope you did something outrageously Australian on Australia day… I’d be mega proud of you if you did, but if you didn’t, well, there’s always next year, hey?

Comment below, mates.

Happy Birthday To Me…

Oops. Yet again, this one’s a little late. Apologies.

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me…

It’s almost sad to think that I have to say happy birthday to myself on my own blog. The least you could do is comment this post 😉

In other news, I’m 18. Adult status means I can now drink (legally), vote (/care), and also be tried as an adult when I break the law (don’t plan to, but good to know nonetheless).

So… Have a cold one without me, and if you’re one of my facebook friends, be nice enough to say “happy bday” on my Wall. You’ll find my facebook profile link on the contact page of this blog, from the menu up the top.

My birthday wasn’t actually that bad. In the typical Benny Ling summary style, it was:

Wash, eat, go out with cousins to internet cafe to play Warcraft DOTA (some weird RPG/RTS thing, but I did manage to BSOD the computer I was playing on not once, but twice), go out with a different set of cousins to buy stuff, come home, eat, play Warlords and Scumbags with cousins, write some blog articles, sleep (nap only), go out for dinner at some wierd place, eat cake at home, watch Dragon Ball Z, write this post, sleep.

I guess that’s about it, but for now, I just have this one thing to say:

Cheers! 😀
