Level 100

At level 100, I have yet to finish the Ashes of Malmouth on Ultimate difficulty. There is a tedious portion where one enters the void after Barrowholm. That will require 2-3 hours to traverse as there is no riftgate in there. Ugh.

I think I will take a break with this Witchblade character for now.

BBC radio

BBC radio seems to be only about refugees and minority voices these days. I don't hear much news reporting. I don't hear anything about East Asia, nor Southeast Asia. It is always about Africa, or India or Syria. It is always about social causes. I used to listen to the BBC a lot more. Now, it is interview after interview with displaced people, female social enterprises. Where is the news? I usually turn it on and turn it off seconds after.

I have managed to level my Witchblade (Soldier-Occultist combination) to l00. However, I would have to spend many hours if I want a complete set of the Dreeg equipment. I am not sure if my Witchblade were powerful enough to finish the Ashes of Malmouth. Anyway, I am a bit tired of playing the Witchblade.

I have since been playing my Demolitionist, Arcanist, Necromancer, Inquisitor, Soldier, Occultist and Shamen.

The Arcanist and Necromancer appear to be fun while the Shamen and Soldier were tedious.
It was a rainy, chilly 23.5 degrees this morning. Even at around noon, it was 24 degrees.

Level 98

I finished Grim Dawn on Ultimate Difficulty at level 97. Last night, I made level 98. Now, I will make level 100 and then finish the Ashes of Malmouth on Ultimate Difficulty. However, that may be easier said than done. I may have to rebuild my character. My poison caster character has difficulties surviving despite the armour, shield and more.

Quests for the Outcast

It does appear that I would have to venture into the Steps of Torment again to finish a quest. Afterwards, I would have to explore the Bastion of Chaos for another and finally, Port Valbury for the last. Then, I can move into the Ultimate difficulty of the game. Hmm.. Should I go straight into Ultimate?

Finally, I would need to restore my reputation with the Black Legion as the Outcast quests reduce Black Legion reputation.

Ashes of Malmouth completed on Elite difficulty

Whee! I have managed to finish the Ashes of Malmouth on Elite difficulty. I should now seek to boost my defences, the resistances. That will lead to a big drop in dps however.

15 August 2018

It is almost time. Phew! I have been distracted. It is such a dreary day.

Relegation candidates 2018-2019

I look back at my prediction for relegation in the 2017-2018 season. I got it right that Swansea City, the Malaysian-owned team would be relegated. Watford and Huddersfield Town stayed up.

My predictions for this season are:

West Ham United

Steps of Torment

I finally finished the Steps of Torment in Grim Dawn for the first time at level 82. It was my second attempt. It was my first attempt in Elite difficulty. Two years ago, I tried for the first time probably at level 20 thereabouts in Normal difficulty, of course, my character died in seconds.

People who have betrayed me in the past can expect no pity nor forgiveness. They are less than human to me.

Of Spaceships and Dreams

I dreamed of a spaceship design in my sleep at dawn today. Haha. I shall have to draw it tonight.


Airmech has changed a fair bit since I was on it four or five years ago. Great game.

The Front Line Assembly soundtrack is excellent, likewise the Warmech soundtrack.

Elite and Legendary levels

I have managed to finish Grim Dawn on Elite difficulty, thus unlocking Ultimate difficulty! Legendary items have began dropping.


Instagram is a funny place. It seems to be a practice there that if someone follows you, you are expected to follow them back. In the past few years, I had various people follow me, and when they find that I had not followed them in return, they stop following me. A few entities did that a few times.

I find a few commercial entities doing that. Likewise, some girls who I have never heard of who I think are probably 'influencers'. (Their instagram accounts seem to be full of pictures of them posing at the pool, at a café, on holiday somewhere).

31 July 2018

I look forward to going for a run this evening. There is much to do tomorrow.

Ashes of Malmouth

I finished the Ashes of Malmouth on Sunday night. It was the second DLC (Downlandable Content) for Grim Dawn. An excellent expansion and addition.

I can't wait for the new instalment, Forgotten Gods.

A dream at dawn

I dreamt of her at dawn. I dreamt that we were watching a movie in the cinema with her head on my shoulder.

The morning intruded and I returned to the routine of work.

World Cup 2014

I have happy memories of watching the World Cup four years ago. I remember going to a community centre in Tampines and watching it. It was quite something.

Jurong Region Line

The Jurong Region Line (JRL) is finally announced. I think the line is much needed from what I have heard, the crowding at the stations in the western region of Singapore. Given that Jurong is a large area in Singapore's context, the number of stations seem right.

I do wonder if there are enough lines linking Jurong to the city though. If not, the East-West line would still be choked. I suppose the last segment, the JRL extension will alleviate that.

Buffets. It makes me sad when I think of them now. I haven't eaten at a buffet for a few years now.

12 January 2018

It was 24.5 degrees at 6:00 pm yesterday and 23 degrees at 9 pm this morning. Apparently, it did drop to 22 degrees last night. It rained the entire night. It had been raining for three or four days continuously.

This has been the coldest in Singapore in a long while.
