Random Dessert Dish
August 14, 2012 @ 8:48 pm (Permalink)
Several days ago, I discovered a wondrous thing called nata de coco — also known as coconut gel. These things are addicting. So yesterday, I decided to try mixing nata de coco with some blueberries and raspberries, creating what I now call “The Red, White, and Blue Fruit Salad”. Today, I decided to make another dish with nata de coco, this time with bananas, mandarin oranges, and almond milk.
It’s not bad. I like it. My only thing is, what shall I call this creation now. Hrm . . .
On a completely random note, tomorrow — August 15 — is Korea’s Liberation Day, and Aigoo-Chamna.Net’s 10th birthday! Yes, I’ve had this domain for ten years as of tomorrow! I wanted to do something special, but alas . . . that’s not happening! Still, though, it’s amazing how ten years have passed since I first got this domain, and eleven since I’ve started owning domains! So Happy 10th Birthday, Aigoo-Chamna!
Oh, I feel incredibly old now.

The Messy Workplace

Fear my messy desk! On the left-hand side, you can see a roll of soft toilet paper (which acts as my Kleenex) teetering on a pile of holiday cards from last month. Behind it is my magnetic white board with “origamis” all over it. And yes, my keyboard is sandwiched in between the house phone and my cellphone (why I have them is beyond me since nobody calls!). Then there’s my mouse and the three (out of four) textbooks I’ve been snoozing over . . . and several other items that really shouldn’t belong on a desk.
Okay, I honestly don’t think my desk is that messy, but combine that with this chair I am using as a table for my other documents and stuff, and the bookcase off to the right-hand side that’s filled with more crap . . . welcome to my workplace!
The things I do when I take a break from my studies . . . Oh, what a lame life of an online grad school student.

After not updating since September 2010, I decided to just finally close down Capriccio.
I will miss the site, miss introducing people to instrumental and classical pieces, but I realise that it’s become much harder for me to update the site with new music since I no longer work in the band room :( Plus with grad school and other priorities in my life, I just no longer want to run the site.
It has lived a fulfilling five years, though. I only wished I had bothered to update the last year and half, though.
Second Life Identity

Thanks to Vickie, I started playing Second Life. The best way to describe this is that it’s The Sims meet a hypersexualised MMO with the most frustrating user interface known to man. I’ve encountered some annoying issues playing this. One of the major issues I’m having is connection problems. My connection tends to die on me every couple of week, so I have to always reset it for it to work . . . but ever since I started Second Life 24 hours ago, I had to reset about 4 times now X_X; It also lags on my connection, which is odd since I’m in Korea and our connection is fast and reliable.
However, I did encounter an amusing thing. I started off as an airship and when I tried to customise the avatar into human, the programme was only showing me his top-half. His entire lower-body was not appearing, so my friend and I puzzled over this strange and freaky phenomenon. I finally got his lower-half to appear after my friend discovered that I had to re-login the programme. ~_~;
Despite all the strange issues, I still find it quite fun to try and customise my guy.
This bloke, by the way, is Takimoto Chikao aka Chi-Chan aka TC. I hope you guys can see why I went the “TC” route XD; I am in love with him now!
