Introduction to who I am

Ok, this is my first ever blog and blog post, so i'll keep it plain and simple.

My name's Graham, I'll be 23 in a few week's time, and I'm just a simple guy trying to get through this life. I'm not too fond of writing 'cause i think it's really time consuming and mentally tiring. I hope blogging will help me think otherwise.

I used to be really outdoorsy and sporty (The athletics trophies that line my display cabinet can testify to that), but now, i just prefer to stay indoors (Partly due to the recent spate of crappy weather). Currently, i spend most of my time either playing the guitar, playing DOTA, or studying (because i have to).

Sounds like the life of a normal Singaporean student? It is. Sorry to disappoint you. I'll try to be more interesting next time.

Hopefully you'll find something you'll love to study about... I've always been curious why DOTA is especially popular with Singaporeans. Do you know of people in other nationalities who play it too?

Well there's mostly the japanese, koreans and philipinos. Americans play it too. But Singaporeans don't play with them cause of the lag. I used to play on Battle Net a lot since i had the original cd. But eversince i got my notebook and installed it, i've been using a program called lancraft that helps to connect players via a host's ip address. So now i can play with my brother and friends against other Singaporeans (less lag).

Hi i'm Monica and I want to say that the quotable quote you have there is cool. Why did you choose that? I used to go on Battlenet too for the Diablo. Do you like that game? I know it is old but it's still my favorite.

Yeah, the verse just reminds me that even if i gain the world (wealth, popularity, girls...), but do not have my soul secured (through my religion), then it's all for nothing. Those things ain't getting me salvation.

Diablo's an all time classic hack and slack game. Played it before too, but yeah it's old. Now i'm playing Titans Quest, which is very similar to Diablo. You should check it out too.

Maybe that should be your first study as professor Kevin. Why DotA is especially popular with Singaporeans. :D

From what I see though, why would you say that it's esp popular with Singaporeans? I see plenty more games for PHI, JAP, KOR, BRA, VIET... It's not hard to find and SG game but it doesn't like dominate the server.... um right? But then again, I play Eurobattle, so the demographics might be different. SG MY PHI JAP KOR BRA VIET all the pirates haha...
