Perfect Wintereenmas Gift!

Wintereenmas is a great and joyous occasion for us videogamers worldwide! It is a time of great celebration of videogames… from January 25-31st (although the whole month is Wintereenmas Season)… and what a great way to celebrate this occasion than to get a brand new handheld!

Yes ladies and gentlemen… my best friend got me a PSP! How incredible is that! I was so excited I literally drove the office nuts with the device… so much for work! Now I have something to entertain me during lunch breaks and before exercise!

I also got seven games with it (well, five, I bought the other two)! Enough to last me a century (and I still have 3 unplayed games on my PC and soon-to-purchase games on my X360).

This is THE game to play! (Hamza don’t be jealous now :P )

Didn’t play it through on the PS2, but now I definitely will!

Every old school gamer needs his Castlevania fix… and it’s Rondo of Blood too!

Although we’re on Final Fantasy XIII (13) now… this is the millionth remake of the first one to cash in more. Don’t expect something grand from a 20+ year old game.

Purely for collection – now I officially played all Final Fantasy games!

One of the best games released on the PSP… gotta be playing this after Valkyrie Profile

I really hate Mega Man, but Mega Man X was my favorite game on the SNES so I had to check out the remake.

Looks like the PSP doesn’t only play games… it has videos and music and photo sharing, as well as Internet! I instantly hooked it up to the net and browsed over to my blog. Cool, ain’t it?

Happy Wintereenmas everyone!
PS: Hamza please do not voodoo me… I am sorry your friends in KSA think Wintereenmas is bid3a and 7aram :P
PPS: Williams, I hope you get your DS Lite soon :P

Story of Stuff

Many people I know are TV junkies – and although I never considered myself a TV junkie, I do like to watch little clips from the web thanks to YouTube and Miro.

I came across this video and I really liked it because it is quite unlike most of the stuff you see out there. This is an eye opener on how “stuff” comes about and goes. The presentation is simple and innovative which makes it fun to watch.

It is 21 minutes long but I seriously urge you to watch it.

Oh and by the way, the next edition of Moogle Thoughts will be a special edition so don’t miss it!

Before the Final Note

Before the Final Note

My last journal entry for the year, I’ve written:

It has been five years now since we have met, in the most unlikely place in the world – the arts and crafts section of a bookstore. But now I understand why you were there. It took all these years to appreciate who you really are.

You listened to me as I spoke of my life. You stood by my side when people accused me of being a terrorist for praying, gay for hugging and naive fore looking for the best in people.

You listened as I ranted on my two crushes. You consoled me when my friends picked up and left or were giving me a hard time.

And now when I look back and browse through your pages, I find that our happy moments are few and far in between. I have been unkind to you when you have been selfless with me.

You have only a few precious pages left, but I will leave you now. I will take all the lessons you have taught me and become the man we both envisioned me to be. And I will come back and tell you about it, so that I finally get to thank you like I should and finally pay my due.

You will always be my favorite journal, and I will be missing you dearly… until the next time we meet.

Much love,
KJ

This was the most difficult entry I had to write, ever… I was at a complete loss of words, the pen was drying and my handwriting reflected my stress. But it was time to move on… to get a new fresh (seventh) book, and writing in it my days – better days – and leave all this darkness behind.

May 2008 be the new beginning for all of you as well :)
