Christmas time everyone!!!

Jingle bells, Jingle bells... Christmas has arrived early folks. LOL.. yup... was on my way to uni today and was passing Lakeside Shopping centre, and from the train I could see them putting up the Christmas tree for the front entrance. Ok, it wasn't completed in that it was decorated, but still, it is only October, still a good 2 months away from Christmas. Well.. they might as well do something, since shoppers aren't really spending money now are they.. hehe...

In other news, yesterday was Michael Schumacher last ever Formula 1 Grand Prix. The 7 times world champion failed to add another world championship, as Alonso won it. But yesterday confirmed what we will be missing from this great sports men... He started 10th because of some kind of engine problem, so he was already wrong footed. Then he had a puncher to his car, which put him to the back of the grid, 70+ seconds away from the leader. But he some how clawed his way back to finish in a not to distance 4th, only 24 seco…

The View was worth watching...

Went to see "The View" gig yesterday. It was amazing. To start the night of, we had some supporting bands. We had 3 altogether and I cannot remember what their names were, but the first band wasn't too bad. They played music that is er... probably a harder edge to the kooks... The second band were the worse of the night. They were ok I guess and are kinda like a bad version of the verve mixed with the libertines. But yeah, they didn't really command the stage and lack something special that makes them exciting to watch. The next band were amazing. In my opinion, this band will be big soon. Their stage present is like oh my god. Their last act, the guitarist and the bassist climbed onto the railings where the lights were situated and jumped from them.. hehe.. well good.

And now at around 10:10pm, The View came on, and at first they played some songs that I have no idea, and then... WASTED LITTLE DJ came on and the whole place went mad. People were coming on stage singi…

Lots of things happening around here

A very long time since my last update, and there are reasons for this. The main reason was that today was meant to be the launch of my next version of my website. But due to time constraints and also pressure of my uni project, I am disappointed to tell you that this will not be ready until mid 2007. But in the mean time I have given a preview to the site, which can be found using the link above.

Also, another thing that has happen is that I have switch web host, and also the shout box has been totally redesign. What does this all mean? Well for one, my site will be more reliable and you should now be able to access it without any difficulties. Second, the URL, www.richardtan.co.uk is much easier to remember. And the third reason is that it will be much faster to load the page due to the redesign to my shout box. So yeah, that’s about it on my website. But yeah, if you do have time, please check out version 3 and drop me a note on what you think of it, since soon it will also be your w…

3rd year, here i come

My god, how time flies. Only a week and a bit ago I was working at Detica, and now back to the full flow of uni. And it is October as well. Scary man, where does all the time go? Anyway, uni is starting to get busier. Not that the lectures are intense or anything, it is just that project are coming up and reading other stuff, and just realised just how busy I am going to be over the next few weeks. Not looking forward to it at all. But everyone is in the same boat.

Was watching a TV programme just now (yes, I am always glued to the TV, lol) and it was about this boy aged 4 from India. He was a poor boy and was taken in by this judo guy so that one day he can train to become a judo master, or something like that. Anyway, this boy was always being naughty and the teacher didn't wanted to punish/hit him, since he was still so young. So what he did to try to teach the little boy a lesson was to ask him to run around the track outside his house where they do judo training. So the boy di…
