Hi everyone! Yes, I have finally done up Nkayesel.com, with three spanking new posts to herald in this new era of my blog! I’m still working out some kinks and stuff, so I haven’t directed this blog over yet, but I will very very soon! As mentioned in my previous blogpost, WordPress users, please remember […]

1. “Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armour, and it can never be used to hurt you.” 2. “A very small man can cost… a very large shadow” 3. “When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.” 4. “Winter is coming.” 5. […]

Of course, these can still be found in places like Bugis Street, Chinatown, Pasar Malams, the occasional cart here and there, and in various parts of Malaysia, but it’s nice to relive these memories anyway. 1. Ding Dang Tang, also known as kok kok candy, which gets its name from the sound made when hacking […]

1. Amanda Abbington, who plays John Watson’s new wife, Mary, in the series, is actually Martin Freeman’s long-time partner. 2. And the nice elderly couple in The Empty Hearse who turned out to be Sherlock’s parents? Well, they are actually Benedict Cumberbatch’s parents. 3. The code used to activate the bomb in The Empty Hearse […]

1. Why are they wearing shoes in the house? 2. Why would there be ghosts in broad daylight? 3. If there are ghosts out on Halloween, why would you let your kids out to play? 4. Why are the kids even dressed like that? Wouldn’t that just attract the ghosts? 5. Why are they (the […]
