HD 650

it was 15minute passing thought, was browsing sites on diy 3.5mm interconnect, one thing lead to another. this was definitely an impulse buy.

went down to stereo at ion orchard to audit it, was not impressed when i tested with song samples from itunes store. [itunes allows sampling of all tracks in their online store], after a while i realized that the tracks were streaming at a low bitrate, hence making the music sound muffled and unclear.

started to browse the songs loaded in the mac, i shat bricks when i played this hi-def lossless track

after listening to this track, i bought the headphone….

sound staging is the first thing i experienced, with the hd650 i’m able to clearly pick up instrument’s position in the arrangement.  the violin to the left, singer in the middle, bass somewhere in the middle, drums, guitar each taking a place.

2 weeks into my new job


I’ve started december with lotsa of expectation and hopes that my new job will be meaningful.

well, im now administrating ESXi, redhat and windows servers for derivatives and securities middle and back office.
i think that sounds meaningful enough.

not forgetting to mention the exposure in financial technology sector that will be beneficial for my career.


was so unfortunate to be caught up in thursday’s mrt breakdown. luckily i missed the prior train that was stuck in the tunnel. so i managed to disembark at raffles place and changed to the NEL from outram park to dhoby ghaut and walked to orchard for my jap class….i was an hour late….

since its the end of the yr, i guess it makes sense to do a review of goals set earlier.

1) JLPT 5 taken the exam, did badly for the grammar section. probably gonna fail….
2) RHCE6 yup, got my RHCE 🙂
3) Driving License gonna start after my final term of japanese class
4) Save up an additional $20000 in part thanks to the lucrative job at sfdc.
5) attempt to go gym at 6am at least once a week… i tried going after work. but since leaving my previous job. i had not gone to the gym for 1 month. the nearest gym at my new workplace is fitnessfirst platinum…it has a $150/month membership fee…. it’s just too costly.

la tristesse durera toujours

I never knew this song was a tribute to Vincent Van Gogh.

After 3 months of job hunting, finally managed to secure a new job. the job sounds tough, not too sure how it will go.

seems that christmas is around the corner. dont u think a starry night is wonderful for this christmas

and wait for the sunrise, next morning

or end up like the sorrowful old man

feeling like this old pair of boots, the feeling of  being discarded.
