Went back to KL during the Christmas period, stayed for 4.5 days. Am now back in Penang.
Due to overspending in KL, I suppose I'll have to hang around at home and be an otaku this few days.
No no.. 不是这个宅男，
No no.. not this otaku,
This should be more appropriate, hehe..
The meaning of otaku (the real meaning), generally it means some guy who spend all the time at home, not setting foot out of the house. Below is an extract from Baidu encyclopedia:
If you are self proclaiming, "I am otaku", it means "I don't step out of home" or "I watch TV/play computer games all day". But if use it on other people, say "Oi wake up la! Otaku!" or "You bloody Otaku!", it means saying that person is daydreamer, talk cock, or just plain unsociable.
昨天和前天，我到了商场，买了许多粮食：米粉，伊面，蔬菜，蘑菇，红萝卜，鸡胸肉，水果，宝塔标花生，饼干，Corn Flakes，Coco Crunch，yogurt drink。家里还有些有机麦片，杏仁粉和美禄。。若无大碍，估计真的可以呆在家好几天了。
Yesterday and the day before, I went to the supermarket and bought lots of foodstuff: bihun, yee mee, vege, mushroom, carrot, chicken breast, fruits, Pagoda peanuts, biscuits, Corn Flakes, Coco Crunch, yogurt drink. There's also some organic oats, almond powder and Milo at home.. if all goes well, I think I can spend a few days at home without going out.
Actually, what's the big deal about being an otaku once in a while? When I told my friends about this idea, everyone seemed worried that I'm going to think up something weird again. I'll just tell you guys something.
I've been an otaku all the while. Before coming to Penang to hang around, I'm absolutely, 100% an otaku. Probably not till a very extreme level, of course I will still meet up some friends, watch movies, sing K, dinner, yumcha,
其实当宅男也没有什么不好吗。在家上下网，看下自己喜欢的书/戏剧/动画，听下许许多多的悲伤情歌，发下部落格贴，未尝不是一种享受啊。尤其是现在工作时那么快节奏又伤脑筋，难道过下清静悠闲的生活很不好吗？而且，在家 = 甭花钱，在这经济不景气的恶况里，能省即省方为上策啊。
Actually, there's nothing wrong with being an otaku what. Staying home getting online, reading/drama-ing/anime-ing, listening to tonnes of sad songs, making some blog posts, is quite a pleasure too. Especially since work life is so hectic and mind boggling, is having some relaxing time not good? Besides, staying home = no spending money, and in the current economic circumstances, saving as much as you can is the smart move.
Of course, if you guys have any good things to do, remember to call me as well, otaku needs to get a breather outside, and immerse himself in some friendship once in a while, it's just that when everyone has nothing much in mind, I don't wanna waste time, energy and money trying to do the tedious tasks @ calling here, dating there. Please, please don't ditch me just because of this declaration of otakuism of mine~~ :'(
Ok, that's about it, time to get back to peeling peanuts and watching Dragon Ball, byebye ^o^
