I’m a Standout in Life


I wasn’t born in one of the cool zodiacs. I’m not a snake, dragon or Tiger (:p). I’m a Rooster. A wretched chicken. *makes chicken noises* Jesus Christ, why can’t I be born in a better year? However, my horoscope is impeccable – I’m an Aries. Hell, I’m an ARIES Aries since I’m smack dab in the middle of the month.


I stand out in life coz I have the courage to boldly go where no man has gone before. Kiss a poisonous King Cobra? No problem. I bet the owner of the snake temple must have regretted the rhetorical call to action coz she thought no one would actually do it. She quickly shooed me off the stage since I was well within striking range of the rather agitated snake. The snake charmer liked me though. I do things that others wouldn’t dare to…

…like go naked in a public waterfall (scarring numerous little kids in the process – boy, are they gonna need therapy later on in life).

…or setting gasoline on fire in a back alley of a gated community with CCTVs.


…or go up to Genting in full costume and getting INTO the casino and out.

Watch the video. I celebrated pulling this off by singing on stage with the band. I just waltzed up and asked to sing. πŸ™‚


I’m a standout in life coz I dare to do what others do not. I guess you can call that being impulsive and reckless but hey, those are Aries traits and I’m proud of them. I wouldn’t blink if you show up on my doorstep with a kwan tau nursing a bleeding hand. Pierce my wrist? No problem. I laugh in the general direction of going for a tattoo on a whim. I don’t think. I do.


…and that’s what makes me special. That is what makes me standout coz it takes a lot of courage to pull of all the stuff that I’ve done in my life (some not chronicled on sixthseal.com for obvious reasons) and not be dead by now. I ought to be dead, or at least horribly disfigured.


Someone up there loves me. There’s no other explanation for it.


Thus, to show my appreciation to the Powers That Be, I am going to the Stand Out With Tiger and Nuffnang party dressed as a mutilated creature. Someone (something?) you’ll shrink from in fear. The person you’ll point out to your kids and mutter “That’s what you’re gonna look like if you keep misbehaving”.

I don’t care about what others think of me. Call me an outcast, call me a pariah, but at least I don’t follow the crowd. Are you unique? Are you a Standout in life?


If you are, you’ll love the upcoming Stand Out With Tiger and Nuffnang party. It’s going down on the 6th of June 2009 at 7 pm (it’s a Saturday) and the dress code is simply “Standout”. Just be yourself!

I didn’t go all the way up to Genting in a Devil’s costume for nothing. :p

  1. Dude, outstanding post! I boookmarked sixthseal.com the first time I read your blog for the life story that shines 15 dB above other bloggers. Unique, bold, tell it like it is, you are the rolling stone, the unstoppable Rocknroll train, blood, sweat and fire. No guts, no glory!
    btw, nice Asian squat, the cobra was aiming for the red rooster.

  2. HB, seeing that snake made me sad for I had one for many years as a pet. Raise it from a small snake and I bought live mices for it to eat and some friend trap some mices for him to have also.
    My pet passed away 6 months ago named Slim but taken many photos of him to remember always. Thinking now getting a monkey or a parrot.

  3. You, HB, are most certainly a standout in life. And you’ve got balls the size of watermelons. I mean that figuratively, of course, since, uh, well….. photographic evidence would indicate otherwise.
    Btw, that water didn’t look so clean. That’s like, runoff from a storm drain?Yikes. For you, “standout” that you are, that just didn’t matter, did it? For me, well, uh, I’m thinking I can do without the risk of Hep C… I guess that’s why you’re blogging and I’m reading.

  4. your tags to your old posts reminds me of my uni days reading your blog and all. I remember me and me substance happy friends, think blogs are gay and some of us never heard of blogs until we stumble upon yours.
    Good/bad times man.
    Glad we’re out of that crap. Or are we?

  5. Your hand is at the wrong position at the waterfall! Now if you were to have your left hand slightly to the left, we’ll have a full glory view of you! Lol… good post. You have always been a standout in your own ways.

  6. You like the rush, drugs or not, what I see is that you still live a daring and risky way of life even sober. I doubt it will change til you get really old.
    That’s what makes sixthseal.com exciting – you almost get a vicarious dose of adrenaline with all the up-close in your face action. You see more action in a month than most people see in a year.
    Sixthseal.com is the antithesis of boredom.

  7. wow.. dat nude shoot really a standout..
    luckily, perhaps, u didn’t show it up or else you will get banned by malaysia government just like the danish reality show.
    anyway, you can still do so in any other places than malaysia..
    really lose out to your standout compared to mine..

  8. Niki: Thanks Niki! πŸ™‚
    No public voting, unfortunately, let’s see if I can win anything that night.
    Robb: Haha! Evil > good any day. πŸ˜‰
    e: Thanks mate! Yeah, this is a hark back to the old days of sixthseal.com – I love writing posts like this. πŸ™‚
    LOL! I was actually a bit apprehensive about the cobra coz the snake temple doesn’t stock any antidote and if it had bitten me, I would have missed my flight back to KL.
    Vickie: I used to keep a ball python too – nice, cute pet snake.
    I love watching it eat mice.
    A monkey? Is that legal where you come from?
    Jhnhth: Thanks buddy! πŸ™‚
    Yeah, it’s a storm drain runoff, didn’t do wonders for my skin either. I broke out in a rash a day after that. Could have been worse though. πŸ™‚
    fish fish: Dragon + Aries would be a SUPER combination, I reckon. πŸ™‚
    Why pai mia for dragon? It’s one of the strongest zodiacs.
    pm: Well, I think I have, somewhere in the archives. I just can’t remember where.
    steben lim: Cheers! πŸ™‚
    I’m proud to be the one who brought blogging to the chemical brothers. πŸ˜‰
    Er…yeah, I’m clean now, have been since my last stint in rehab.
    Darren: Thanks mate!
    eiling: Haha! I wanted the leaf for a bit of an artistic touch. πŸ˜‰
    Cheers Eiling! πŸ™‚
    I guess I standout for a lot of reasons, and not all of them good. πŸ™‚
    Trey: I wrote something about that a couple of days ago…last weekend if I recall correctly.
    Yeah, I do enjoy taking risks (and of course, getting away with it) but age has tempered that a little.
    Thanks for the kind comments mate, much appreciated. πŸ™‚
    KwOnG FeI: Heh! Yeah, I remember the banning and the public apology by the Danish filmmakers.
    Nah mate, we all standout in our own way. Yours is good too! πŸ™‚

  9. Dude; you dont need preacheing from me. In deed, I dont preach. Though I was a sunday scholl teacher, and have given 3 “sermons” which I thought wrer concise and to the point ( It was the “good samaritan- all hangs on this point Love God with all you heart, and do unto others as you would have done to you.) I was not invited back. I cannot stand that, nor never could. Many and I at least watch what people do, NOT Say. Saying is too easy. I live. But this series of photos … Well it got me off guard. I seems like you are, but but but…. me 20 years ago. In the first one, you look like medusa. The second one,well, everybody knows you are ok. Do not provoke things needlessly, dude. Around where I live, there are some persons that handle deadly snakes and drink poison as a test of faith. Thank you very much, I have already been bit, survived, and do not care to pick up another. I don’t kill them, just give them a wide berth; and I drunk some bad moonshine in my youth, and survived, also, though some went blind from lead poisoning. I figure God might have some tests for me in the future, but I am more than happy to wait for them. ( as they say in the military, we will let you know when we want you to be uncompfortable) As Many other photos and Utube vids. Yhe one that got my attention was you climbing out of the creek, with a banged up knee. I thought, Damn is he ok? Can I help him? Then I thought, This is my brother. I am 50, and that is what I have learned. Though half a world away. Sorry Hb, for the “lecture” God Bless to you and all you love ( and even to those you dont)

  10. no you dont the closest thing u have is a photo of u jerking off but theres no nudity but you should put some nude pics up

  11. HB, I reakon I better finish this off now. Not tow Offend Millions of persons, ( I have great respect for the Buddist faith) but you look like you are kissing the blarnny stone, not to mention your hair is red. But also laddie, al those great looking lassies. Hope you are doing right by them. Aye, twill have you in my prayers, no doubt. ( actually I am Welsh, so If i wrote in in that , I would look like xmzppwoioiodmdef) So what. God Bless HB.

  12. Oh, in case you might wonder, Pises ( feb an march) and the bithstsone is ameythst, (the sobiety stone according to the new agers for all the good it has done me). Also the stone color of bishops in the catholic church though i do not hold wih that. And I ama leap year baby. Old tradiions die hard. But I LIKE your purple shirt. so be it
