Country of Rape

People from the 3rd world country
Rushing in pushing me and my homie
Country of rape
Will we eventually take the rap
When would the white men realize
That we are the ones being victimized.

Finally a Graduate.

As most of you know, I am pursuing my Banking & Finance degree. A few hours ago, I submitted my last paper. Minutes prior to submission, a sudden sense of emptiness overwhelmed me. This is it. I told myself. I did not even try to finish my exam questions fast in order to leave the exam hall early. I'll miss being a student.

Throughout my life as a student from Primary school all the way to Polytechnic, I've never put in my best effort to study. Perhaps it's the subject matter or perhaps it's because we're all forced to do so. All I know is, I'd never truly "mugged" for any subject.

In a competitive job market such as Singapore, I knew that I needed a degree. The question is, which one? I eventually narrowed down to Banking & Finance. I felt that financial knowledge is something that's useful even in everyday life. And I can finally make sense of all the financial crises happening around the world.

Getting back to school ignited my new found love for studying and mentoring. A big thank you to all my friends, classmates, project mates and especially the lecturers; their patience and concern made this journey easier.

And last but not least, to my girlfriend, Bonita for always being there for me; accompanying me in Starbucks, McDonald's, libraries and school classrooms while I do my revisions/assignments. Now I have more time for you.

Yes, I am finally a graduate. What should I conquer next?

Alien

In Space No One Can Hear You Scream
In anticipation of Prometheus, the girlfriend and I watched Alien recently. We wanted to have a better background of the whole situation so we can enjoy Prometheus better.

Background
In the distant future, men has ventured into space for resources. Nostromo is one of such commercial spaceships, towing several million tons of mineral ore back to Earth. One by one, the seven crew members on-board the spaceship wakes up from their hibernation. Instead of being on the way back to Earth, the computer, Mother, on-board the ship has intercepted a signal in space and is heading towards the signal to investigate.
All I wanted was a friend.
No prize for guessing what they discovered on that planet. Alien life form. More specifically, lots of alien eggs.

And one of the crews got himself attached to one. No, not fall in love with one. He had one attached to his face. Yes, we are talking about the infamous Facehugger.

I can't really go on without giving out more spoilers. But all you have to know is that this is a good movie. All hell breaks loose from here on.

Unlike movies nowadays which try to confuse you with special effects to make up for the lack of plot or directing skills (yes, I am talking about you Michael Bay), Ridley Scott allows you to soak in the whole atmosphere and fucks you right there. You genuinely fear for the crews' and for your own life. And it helps that we were watching it in a dark room in the middle of the night.

To sidetrack a little, anyone else thinks that Sigourney Weaver in 1979 looks like Kristen Steward? Even the acting style was pretty similar. Cold, expressionless acting.

Stiff acting before it was cool.

Edit toolbar not appearing on custom Concrete5 theme.

Make sure that you've replaced
<title>Some Title</title>
with
<?php Loader::element('header_required'); ?>

And you would also need to have
<?php Loader::element('footer_required'); ?>
at the bottom of your page.

How to put the post title at the end of the breadcrumbs in Drupal

If you did just
<?php print $breadcrumb . $title; ?>
You will realise that your page title appears in a new line like so:
Home » Guys »
Shirts

To solve the problem, just add this to your css.
.breadcrumb 
{
   display: inline;
   margin-bottom: .5em;
   font-size:80%;
   font-weight:normal;
   color:#393939;
}
And replace
<?php print $breadcrumb . $title; ?>
with this
<?php
   print $breadcrumb."<span class=\"breadcrumb\"> &raquo; ".$title."</span>";
?>

Displaying Google map on Drupal

If like me you have been cracking your head trying to integrate Google Map into Drupal, watch the video below and read the guide after that. Definitely helped in my understanding.

But you need to get some stuff ready before diving in.
  1. Google Maps API - Sign up and get your Google Maps API key. You will have to input it later on in order for the map to work.
  2. GMap (Drupal Module) - This will provide an interface to the Google Maps API within Drupal.
  3. Location (Drupal Module) - It allows you to associate location information (coordinates, address, etc... ), with Drupal nodes and users.


After watching the video, have a look at this guide, Mapping with Drupal: GMap, Location & Views. You will learn how to create a view with the information you've created above.

My December

I have been anticipating for the arrival of December.

The end of a year. The welcoming of a new year. Christmas. Gatherings. Presents. Celebrations. Alcohol. Our anniversary. Her birthday. December is just filled with endless fun.

But most importantly, come December 15, I will be eligible to register for my Class 2A lessons. And I will try my very best to get my license as fast as possible this time. No more slacking. For we know that by attaining my Class 2A is another step closer to Class 2, which ultimately leads to my Fireblade.
