缺钱@宅男 Otaku

圣诞期间回到了吉隆坡,呆上了4天半。现在又到回来槟城了。
Went back to KL during the Christmas period, stayed for 4.5 days. Am now back in Penang.

由于这次在吉隆坡花费超支了,所以估计这几天要在家当宅男了。
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,

应该这个比较贴切,呵呵。。
This should be more appropriate, hehe..

宅男的定义,大致上应该就是指整天呆在家里,没有踏出家门口半步的人吧。顺便和大家分享一下从百度百科找到的一些资料
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:

如果是在自称,“我是一个宅男”或是“我真是宅”的时候,代表的意义通常是“我足不出户 ”或是“我看电视玩电脑一整天”等。但是如果是用在他人身上,如“醒醒吧!宅男。”“你这个阿宅”等的时候,其意义就是只会幻想、嘴炮或是在家里不出门与他人交际。
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.

其实,偶尔当下宅男也没什么大不了吧?当我告诉我的友人我这个念头,大家好像都在担心我又跑去转牛角尖了。我索性就告诉你们吧。
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.

我本来就是个宅男。在我还没有跑来槟城打混的时候,我根本就是个不折不扣的宅男。也许没有到很离谱的地步,我当然还会约好友去看下戏,唱下K,吃下饭,喝下茶,Club下bing 之类的,不过大部分时间都会呆在家上网/看Astro。在我开始懂事的时候就已经开始过着宅男的生涯了。
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, clubbing etc, but most of the time I would be staying home, online/watch Astro. I'm an otaku from a very young age.

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.

当然,如果大伙儿有什么好康,记得也要打电话给我,宅男也需要出外透透气,得到些友情的滋润的,我只是在大伙儿没有什么pattern的时候,不想多费精力去做些吃力不讨好又花钱的勾当@call这约那而已。千万别因为我一时想恢复宅男生活的宣言便弃我而去啊~~ :'(
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,写够了,我要继续刨花生看七龙珠了,掰掰 ^o^
Ok, that's about it, time to get back to peeling peanuts and watching Dragon Ball, byebye ^o^
