Mammoth The Heavenly Mountain

after 12-14hrs snowboarding in 2 days . 24hrs later i find myself window shopping for some gear in a snowboard shop, bought a snowboarding mag n was thinking to save up and enroll in some freestyle park camps for snowboarding next season . this addiction has blown me away, both physically and mentally, not to mention financially . but still everytime when im on the snow . speechless

mammoth weekend . 2 days ago was a blast . even it was the driest season in 80yrs in california, still i had a great time . it wasnt perfect, but it was great . blessings to all the boarders, we all came back in one piece, had a great time n gain new skillz to our shredding ability .

in this city of angels, most people are strangers that walk pass us in our lives . even we may not even board together again for d rest of our lives, but good luck to ya'll on ur journey . d show must go on nevertheless . to all living their lives under the sun . we are all trying hard at this game that is call life . sometimes we have our ups n downs .

this is another phase after that "summer" . different faces, different activities . but these are the things that makes me . stop and think abt how much i love life .

7 Years

was running to get in front of the crowd, just to get the front seat, cz then it would b cooler to sit in front . din really thought much abt how foolish it was . cant even remember some of their names in the picture . 7years into the future . me sitting here blogging from LA . never from my wildest imagination that would ever happen .

its been a while since i got tipsy, it was saturday at a malaysian house party, lots of people . around 40people . with a live band, whoever wanna jam or can sing, go ahead, in the end i was kinda drunk till i was singing a few songs . how gnarly was that . but like the people in the picture, we were coincidently at that location at that moment, when the moment snaps away, we were on our own ways heading to some diff location . does that make talkin to them at that moment useless for the future? what do we gain? by interacting to the people who are right here coincidently the same location as you? what do we acheive? i may be evil or think too much, by every conversation i dont mean i wanna gain something, but whats the use? so during the party i drank the chivas + green tea, me and steven bought, gave a couple of shots to those who i think was worthy of the shots . the rest were too indulge in their own activities or non activities . the LA lifestyle . to be thrown in a pool full with strangers . even with your fellow malaysians here in Los Angeles, its the same thing . we are all just coincidently here .

p.s you know your a true snowboarder, if you check the weather forecast during the winter season like those who frequent the stock websites and sports result site .

i guess im a pessimist afterall, so sue me ..

Snow Orgazm

this is a summary of the pictures of this winter season, spent alot a huge amount on the snow, burning cash on the snow, but from the start of the season, the whole day, if i had a perfect run down without falling, i would be so happy, but around now, i have to at least get at least 1-2 feet of the air flying, then ill b happy . i am literally flying right now . maybe other people may think im crazy for going so many times, but its rare for anyone of us to find something that we can love so much with all our heart . i cherish each moment of it when im on the snow, same with basketball i tend to be in a different zone, a different world of it's own . i forget all the worries, the sadness, the problems, and for a brief moment, im somewhere else . i guess this is the feeling when people take drugs, but mines a natural 'high' . like i said before, when i do something, i dun mind be alone standing at the top . its for myself and not anyone else . its a individual thing . hopefully the mammoth trip will work out 2 weeks from now .

Cigarettes & Snow

a piece of cloud i took down from the californian sky . what a crazy weekend it was, well worth it though . started off with a friday night with chisho's birthday dinner at torrance, anyways by the time it was over with a lil champagne it was 230am and i had to wake up at 430am to start driving to a friend's place so we could carpool to the mountain, and praying we would start shredding snow before 9am, so we started around 930am, stop at 130pm had lunch till 230pm, continue the snow orgazm till 6 something, caught couple inches of air of the ground with a perfect landing, did the box, race with the japanese snowboarder from whistler (#1 ski resort in the world), chisho . by the time we got back to LA, it was 9smth, had our dinner and headed back to my friend's place, they were all not at home . having a gambling chinese new year chap goh meh session, so i ended up joinin them and gamble till 3 in the morning with just 2hours of sleep the previous night . then had a chance to catch up with a very good friend of mine, we talked till 5smth in the morning, that friend prove that real "real" friends dont have to see each other every day, and yet we din see each other for such a long time, when we talk, the feeling was still the same like a few summers ago . i miss the times we had together, it was so crazy and we never thought of wat would happen the next day, just focusing on the moment . and after the long talk, i had to wake up at 9am to play a league, by sunday morning, my phone was dead, so was my ipod, not to mention myself . i could barely walk, i only played the first half of the game, scoring 12pts . i gave up after that, my team lost . i din care too, my head was bobbing hard, my legs were weak, my body felt as it was gonna break into pieces, by the time i had my breakfast/lunch it was 3pm, and joined my friends in another bball session at 4pm till 6pm, won couple of games and my legs had the cramps . we reached his place at 630pm, they all went to dinner, i quickly took a shower n i was KO after that till 9pm . sometimes im amazed at how i can go, even my body couldnt take it, nobody could hang with me, most ppl were already sleeping when i was still gambling saturday night . won 15 bucks though, its been a while since i had that like chinese new year feeling .

incredible weekend ...
