Just a Rant, Pokèmon Spooky Cup

Wow, no time for blogging is it?

Well, I was busy a bit.

Busy for what you say?

Another online tournament for Pokèmon. They do this quite regularly and it helps you to hone your skill. So for this tournament they have a set of Pokèmon that we can only use because it is deemed the scariest. It is nearing Halloween, so its quite fitting actually.

As I am typing this, the competition is under going. 

How am I doing? I lost 8 out of 10 battles). It is intense!. I spend the whole week breeding the perfect one only to find out it just does not synergize well or that I don't have a backup plan for certain matches.

It's tiring, that I feel I need to rant.

What's more interesting?
There would be 2 more Pokèmon Video Game Championship, happening later this year, and all of it occurs during my off day. How awesome is that. Its both fun and frustrating to play. I guess that is the game.

Too bad I never entered any competition when I was younger, I was a very sore loser. If I decided to have children in the future, I would want them to feel the joy of winning and the pain of losing but not until you get all crazy mad. Just sad is good enough and brings enough drive to improve yourself.

Pokèmon. It's a kid's same but also an adult game where you have to know strategies and techniques. Did I mention there is more than 700 Pokèmon to be memorize.

Wander lust

Wander lust

I gotta love that word. It's like a combination of two things that I like. Wandering around and lust. Evil, very evil.

My birthday is coming up soon and I decided to give myself a treat. A treat of travel. Last year I bought a PS3 and I love it. I don't play it as often as I should, but I still love it. (I play my 3DS more often, as you would notice)

I would like to visit either two countries that I have visited before, Korea and Japan.

Why would I visit countries I visited before, why not try other places.


Well, yes, the statement above is true, but both countries is special to me.

Korea is fantastic, I love Korean food. I love their cosmetic line. I love how very friendly they are to Malaysians. I mean, we do go there a lot. However I just like to be aloof there and just chill out at the nearest cafe while watching the people go by.

Japan hit's close to home. It's the land of Pokèmon and sushi. Both are incredibly awesome there. I would not mind to take a cheap flight there with a ridiculous long transfer time and stay a share house just because I love it there. However I just went there like 2 weeks ago.


I could buy a new phone and just chill out in Langkawi or something right..


This ability of not making any decision is costly. Since all of the promotion ticket has ran out and that promotion with the new Galaxy Note 5 with free powerbank and wireless charger from Celcom is over. I feel like kicking myself, but at the same time, I wanted to take risk and see where it would lead me.

Why not right? Might as well take a few risk.

Blogging Class

A class for blogging?

Yeah, sure why not. It's a dying art. Well at least from my experience. Remember my last post, yeah that one.

However this is a new class for mostly newbie. However its funny to find out some people actually have blogs, but they forgotten about it. LMAO!

I guess it's good to find new blood to read. However, little do they know about trying to blog. If you see from my post, most of it was published well after midnight. Lately that is the only time that I could get actually any inspiration to write,
This has nothing to do with the blog, but this to show who I am.  Gadgets, Pokèmon, skin and messy

My first Pokèmon Video Game Championship (Pokèmon VG Malaysia Sceptile Series)

I look happy right, she did beat me. She is a seasoned pro and I just started to get serious. It's all good.

So what did we play?

We played Pokèmon. Yes we played Pikachu

Yes, that yellow cartoon character that was supposedly banned because of Jewish Zionist influence. I am not kidding, it was spread way back in the 90s and sometimes the story pops up now and then in social media. 

This was held in KDU Damansara Jaya. It was held by its own club called "KDU Gaming Club". I find it interesting and awesome because KDU itself offered a Bachelor in Gaming Development. Seems pretty sweet to promote their course and we get to have fun. 

So my first battle, number one of out 6 rounds, is against a pro with a 3ds video capture card. Which means, the whole world, or at least those who watched the online stream, managed to see me get beaten miserably. Although if I had played my cards right, I could be better because I used a few rare Pokèmons. It's all good.

As I suspected, I felt old. Seriously old. Most of the participants are still students. Well thank goodness for these frame-less glasses that made me seem young? Maybe not.

I came along, aloof here and there. Then suddenly out of nowhere, a wild friend appeared. Made 2 friends actually. Both are still students but we have a bit more in common other than Pokèmon. One guy came from the same kampung as I am, while the other was a student in UTP, which is home to a lot of my volunteers.


The battle was intense as hell! It was fantastic because the pros gave me tips on how to improve my team. Since I am in love with Ampharos, there were suggestions on how to make him better for VGC which includes make his slow speed work and increase his defenses.


It was fun and maybe I will start to join the rest of the gathering, if and only if it happened during the day that I actually have the day off. 10 October was a lucky one for me.

It felt awkward and uncomfortable, which mean it is the right thing to do and it will help you grow.

Just Keep Writing

Just keep writing.

It's just one of the ways or steps that you learn when you want to become a writer. It kinda makes sense though. Writing is practicing.

When we had a drama class, the adviser swore on pen and paper. He meant that certain studies has shown when you write on a piece of paper using pens, you will developed better mental health? or something. I don't know. I am too lazy to provide the source.

He is right though. Think about it, first you think of what you what to write. Secondly you move the pen into letters, that form words and becomes sentences. As you write, you read and you review. So it makes one hell of a party in your head. Its better than slamming your fingers on the keyboard.

Hmm, I don't know, what about those who can type without looking at the keyboard. I am doing it pretty well. I wrote most of the sentences above without actually looking at the keyboard. Yes, I do make mistakes but I did correct it.

So the words from my head, goes into my fingers and my fingers press the appropriate keys to form letters, that form words and turn into sentences. Which will then tell a story.

Was he wrong, my drama class adviser? Am I right? Who knows. If you type to much, you will loose the art of hand writing. However as we digitized, typing is something we do naturally. Samsung has been doing it for years with its Note series, while Apple being Apple, says it revolutionilized the pencil by making the iPencil. *facepalm. Hey whatever rocks your boat right.

I think it is important for children to diversify their motor skills, a bit of writing, painting and typing. This shit ain't easy to do okay, the typing without looking. For me it's like playing a musical intsrument and the words are my notes and the song is my story.

Ah well, whatever it is, if it helps to write, why not?

Original content

You know what worries me now? Not having enough original content. Yes, me blabbing on a blog and you accidentally clicking on it, is considered original content.

Whenever I see a Vine, YouTube, Instagram or Twitter, those are original content. Well at least those who do make them. We do have those who simply re post and it just pisses me off really. Those that post original content and have a strong followers, now that is even crazier.

What can I do? Well definitely most of these people has a rather humble beginnings and I was happy to be a part of the group that watches them grow.

Do I have a group of people watching me grow? Hmm, well maybe during my active days. Now? Eh, who knows. It's crazy that I actually have more content but I refuse to upload them

Lazy Fuck...

That is soo not how rich successful people get rich and success.


You gotta work with what you have eh?

Me and my Pokemon, if you know Pokemon were real and this picture has nothing to do with the blog, I just figured all of you deserves a picture.

Normal Type

What is normal? Well the picture above is Lopunny, a Normal type Pokemon. It may look like a female character, but it can be male or female. It's also one of the Pokemon than tends to get over sexualized by horny Otaku perverts. Eh, watcha gonna do right.

I don't feel normal. Never had a normal childhood, normal school life, not normal anything. In fact I tend to be attracted to abnormal things. Erghh, it seem some of it is just bad choices. We are so not getting into that mode.

Normal mode for now means going back to work after a 2 day travel, 3 workshop, 2 daytime work travels and 2 night time visits in a different country.

Now I am going back to the real world, which is my museum world and back to the place that gave me the opportunity to break from the normal. I must keep in mind the one year promise I made to the. It's actually in contract so I am screwed if I don't follow it. Meh.

However yeah, it is fun. Remember all that talk about social media. Damn, it is much harder than it seems. Its even harder when you don't have a reliable equipment to use. Thank goodness I bought a good laptop. I mean the old one can still be used normally but really if you can't YouTube then what it the point of paying RM 243 a month for 20Mbs Internet.

Ah well, I guess there is nothing wrong about not being normal. When they say normal is boring, they can't really put what is normal. What is normal to you, seems so abnormal to me and vice versa.

I feel better now. Maybe because I writing more, maybe because I have a hot cocoa, maybe because I have the AC on to just chill me until bedtime.

I really should upload all my photos of my trip. People like that kinda thing. It helps them to plan.

Who am I? A question about branding

Who am I? Well in life I got a relatively well understanding of who I am, but online? Who am I? For most people it probably does not matter since the real world is where the action is, but what about those who work closely with media and public. Who you are online will say what you are and what you do.

In my line of work which involves me working in a museum, I don't really have any related work outside the museum field. All those demonstration and random science facts don't really add up outside the museum world. A talk with my sister who is a recruiter confirms that. If she can't understand what I do, will the rest of the world do?

So I am nearing my 5 year plan. Who am? This just made me a bit confused. Am I a nerd? Am I a foodie? Am I a wanderlust traveler? Am I an emotional person? Am I a story teller? Am I a blogger? Am I a gamer? 

I think I am all of it. If you remember the saying "Jack of All Trades" this seems like it but there is actually a continuity of it which is "Master of None". Oooh that just really pull down the saying into the negative zone.

Well, people call Bazli. I love Pokemon and I plan to play it competitively. Hence the ID card you see above. It is a legit thing that the whole world has and involve and it does actually provide you with a lot of opportunities. Not bad for a thing that was supposedly banned in Malaysia sometime ago but never enforce, just like smoking. 

I do play other games on other system which includes Android, Sony PlayStation and PC. If I had the money, I would also get the Wii U.

I love to travel and have been doing it extensively. I am lazy to upload pictures though, but that has to change.

I love food and I love making them. I do believe I helped my younger sister jump start her online baking business (she still uses my Pavlova recipe that I took from the Internet).

I definitely enjoy working in the museum and I love the various demonstration that we are able to do and show off to people. 

I did enjoy blogging sometime ago because my masters was so hard to do and the work itself was very lonely, so I had to vent out one way or another. 

So I guess I am more than just one thing.

However, branding requires you to focus. So which one is it?

Oh Apple, you sneaky ....

Lately Apple has been messing with my mind. Not the fruit but the tech company that swept the world by storm. Apple churns out pretty good products that EVERYBODY (that has money) seem to have. Iphones, Ipads and Macbooks. The amount of customer loyalty is insanely high in my opinion but Apple must have been doing something well enough to make people that loyal.

I like my Android and I like my PC but lately people seem to push me around in another direction and it is driving me of the wall. I like Androids with the games they offer and the freedom to choose a variety of phones. It is also a lot cheaper. I like my PC because it runs a lot of games that I like, besides who plays games with a Mac? Maybe those simple games maybe, but not those high definition games.

However Apple has been tugging my soul. Yeah, my soul, not my wallet, not my heart, not my mind but my soul. It is scaring me a bit. If I did not have a good head on my shoulder. I would just probably swipe my credit card now and just get that Apple product that I want, right this instant. I even have the Apple website open in one of my windows.

I would get the Iphone because it seems to have a lot of cool features now like 4k recording, live pictures and just a sleek exterior. It also has this pastel metallic pink that they called Rose Gold and I felt the gentle color SCREAMING at me. What the hell Apple. When I was in Japan and they already launched Iphone 6s, I was watching their commercial in Japanese and was hook on it, even though it did not make any sense. Once I switched it to English, I hate it that the voice in the  commercial was being self depreciating ish about the phone features and I love self depreciating humor. God Dammit.

When I went to Japan for a workshop, a god damn spokesperson from Apple came and presented a video on how Ipads and Macbook can be used to make Ebooks that is simple to use and yet very detailed. Aaaarggh, Apple has definitely gotten it hook on education a LONG time ago. I am in the education sector and I want to create my own brand, so I feel like I need an Ipad and Macbook now because in order to create a better future for myself.

It all cost money though, but I feel like I could used that money for my personal trip to Japan because I have so many things to see, but you know what would suck though? More than half of the people there uses Iphones. WTF! Those waterproof Japanese phones are rare to see now. Using an Android seems to be the hipster thing to do.

Yup, I finally made it here to Tokyo Japan. Actually it was already in my plans to travel to Tokyo for my 31st birthday, but as fate would see it, I was sent here for training.

The gist for the 3 days training is

  • This is a one year commitment project
  • I am screwed
  • I get to learn new skills that will help me in the future
  • I got to meet cool new people
  • I am soo screwed
  • I get to see bits and pieces of Japan, although Odaiba does not feel like Japan at all
  • I feel nervous with the responsibilities that handed upon me
  • I am not sure how will my bosses react to the plans
  • Can I handle this amount of power again?
  • Euww Apple's marketing managed to get to me.
So many questions, but this is wonderful because I would be out of my comfort zone. There is no better way to learn and grow than to be thrown into something you feel uncomfortable in.
