I still remember when I was first exposed to the Internet. It was the year 1998. Cyber cafes (cc) were still a new idea in Kota Kinabalu, my hometown in Sabah, Malaysia. One of the very first CCs opened in Karamunsing Complex. I forgotten their name, but I remembered them charging RM8 per hour. Ridiculous, isn’t it? But I didn’t care. I remembered spending four hours in that cc (yup you do the math), just chatting away in mIRC. The Internet opened a world of possibilities – you have your own email account, which you can send emails to your friends or cousins faraway and get their replies faster than snail mail. And the mIRC…oh my. Isn’t it cool to be able to choose your nickname and just chat away without worrying about making a fool out of yourself (because you know, you could always quit the channel and ‘X’ the person).
I can’t imagine a world without Internet. I can’t imagine not having Internet access in my life. This blog is simply a place for me to express. Anything I want. Whether it is some original dish I come up with, sharing my artwork to ranting about a bitch. I think I’m ready to share with the world.
So here I go.
