Hari Ini Dalam Sejarah


The annals of sixthseal.com are kinda messed up since I don’t actually have a backup copy of my own blog – the archives you see on the sidebar is a monthly HTML manual save, and it’s not searchable since it’s not in the main blog database. Clicking on it is probably going to rape your bandwidth since one month’s worth of sixthseal.com posts will likely choke even the most robust broadband connection.

I’ve been meaning to do something about it but I’m a natural at procrastination. It just reminds me of this saying “Procrastination is like masturbation – It may sound like a good idea at the time, but in the end you’re only fucking yourself”. Thus, I have decided to do a Hari ini Dalam Sejarah (Today in History) feature where I upload the posts of the day starting from 2002 until 2006 so it can be fully integrated into the blog.

This would be easier for me to do since I’ll only have to do 4-5 posts per day. It basically requires cleaning up the HTML code, and uploading the photos. This will appear at the end of every post starting from today until 365 days later (The Day Before Today, which would be best summarized as YESTERDAY in 2009). It’s a long, tedious task since I’ve been blogging daily since 2002 but in small doses, it just might be manageable. πŸ™‚

This is the debut post, the posts after this will just have the links at the bottom.

Hari Ini Dalam Sejarah Singa Laut Nombor Enam (sixthseal.com)

25th of August 2002

I was studying in Monash University in Melbourne, Australia and had just come back from a trip to the Grampians. The trip report was done on the next day since I was bushed (no pun intended) when I got back.

25th of August 2003

I was in KL and apparently had a lot of time on my hands since there were several posts. I had just gotten my job in XM Malaysia and also made a trip report of another sort which shall not be linked directly from this post. πŸ˜‰


I made one final post about the The Tallest Book Tower + The Biggest Pushpins Jalur Gemilang @ Sunway Pyramid.

25th of August 2004

I was in Kuching working and wrote about this drinking establishment (of the non-ethanol variety) in town.

25th of August 2005

There isn’t an entry for this date on this year. Phew, I thought the previous day’s one was 25th. I’m glad it’s not. πŸ˜‰

25th of August 2006

I was writing about the Gourmet Market at Siam Paragon in Bangkok, Thailand. I went there with one of my ex-girlfriends. She had a pharmacist convention going on there and had a room all to herself so I booked a ticket and went with her since I was on leave at that time.

It’s very interesting to see how my writing style changes throughout the years. My belief system and experiences have gradually shifted as well, and it always makes me nostalgic to go through the archives.

Hope you enjoyed the journey back in time as well. Cheers!

  1. fish fish: Yeah, it’ll be a good way to stop myself from procrastinating too. I’ve been meaning to get the archives up properly but never got around to doing it after MONTHS of saying I would. πŸ™‚
    Kim: Yeah, the monthly archives to the side are a bit nasty on bandwidth, both on your side and my server side. This would be a good way for me to actually get the posts up in a disciplined methodological way too – it’ll be done in a year. πŸ™‚

  2. Dude, MT4.1 upgrade does not migrate the comment? I encountered the same problem. It’s okay, I hate to read the embarassing troll like comments I left on sixthseal.com back then.

  3. Finally woo!
    Ive tried finding my old fav posts but yeah its very hard to navigate.
    It will be a deja vu re reading all your old posts, times you have forgotten?
    all the old comments would be lost tho, right?

  4. Actually it is fun to read back what you had posted on this day long long time ago. Hope to see more HDS posts. Btw, I know this friend of yours. I think I stay with her family in the same neighburhood.

  5. musique7775: I’ve been thinking about doing that seriously now. Ever since speaking to Justin and doing a book about my life in various parts of the places I’ve lived in and the exploits I’ve been though. πŸ™‚
    goolooloo: Heh! It’s okay, it’s not that bad and it wasn’t that long anyway, come to think of it. Time waits for no man. πŸ™‚
    annant: Indeed…I was just a university student when I started out and now I’m (nearly) pushing 30. πŸ™‚
    e: Well, the problem is that I don’t even have the old MT backups. I only have the HTML backups and those weren’t even mine – it was kindly sent to me by an Australian reader.
    No problems mate, all in the past. πŸ™‚
    Bert: Thanks for the vote of confidence buddy! πŸ™‚
    I am going to do one. I have lived quite a hedonistic life, and have experienced quite a few unusual things worth writing about. Heh!
    suituapui: Yeah, I still remember the 5 minute feature on national TV before the cartoons start when I was young. Heh!
    essentric: Indeed. It shall be confirmed either in a week or a month. I shall wait and see. πŸ˜‰
    Blue Curacao: You sure or not? It’s a show all tell all confessional wor. πŸ˜‰
    Your name might be mentioned in one of my exploits. Heh!
    I’m kidding, pseudonyms will be used, naturally, to avoid lawsuits. πŸ™‚
    julian: You’re the first one who told me about the concept of a blook. I am going to go at it soon. πŸ™‚
    I am such a procastinator, I haven’t even sent you the logs that I downloaded. I’m sorry!
    (=’.’=): My life is an open book. πŸ™‚
    babycicak: Yeah, time flies when you’re having fun. I wish I could go back to 2002 and just be a uni student. I used to be much happier. πŸ™‚
    Oh well, life goes on.
    Richard Goh: Oops! I totally forgot about that. I just emailed you, check your mail.
    peteformation: Yeah, it’s a nice place. It was new when I visited Bangkok.
    Tom: Yeah, the monthly thing without search is a bit of a hassle to navigate. Unfortunately, I don’t have a proper database backup of the blog so all comments are lost. I only have the post itself so everything prior to 2008 will be without the comments since it was just done today. I wish I had kept better backup procedures but I was such a mess back then that I couldn’t even take care of myself.
    Choonie: It’s going to be a daily feature from now on. Yeah, her name starts with an S right? Don’t say it on the blog though, she’s a pharmacist and cannot be associated with a person like me. Cheers!
    Thanks for reading Choonie! πŸ™‚

  6. This page seems to get a large ammount of visitors. How do you promote it? It offers a nice unique spin on things. I guess having something real or substantial to say is the most important factor.

  7. The aid aspect was key. When the MLM prospects were purchased, was there somehow help in the event that of need? Most had email support, various had live telephone support, and a few had live real-time message support. There were web-sites that offered no support, and if you had a challenge together with your MLM leads, then good luck.

  8. Training also includes scripts, dealing with objections, presentation, following up, closing, and various MLM potential customers topics. There are a few HOT MLM sales opportunities web pages around that really delivered on this excellent of MLM sales opportunities training.

  9. Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
