about me

Hi, I’m Tim and this is my space on the internet where I aggregate my musings, opinions and weird things I do.  I am Canadian (Vancouver born and bred) and ethnically Chinese.  My parents emigrated here from Malaysia via Australia and I'm thankful and blessed that they did.  I'm in my late-20s, I can do the splits, and I graduated from Simon Fraser University with a BBA in marketing, though that means very little to me now. 

I used to be a diehard Canucks Fan, but mostly support Chelsea FC and Whitecaps FC at the moment.  I like to laugh a lot and will make corny jokes to do so and I enjoy flying kites, which I haven’t done in years.  I enjoy eating potato chips waaaaaay too much.  I prefer dogs over cats and vacuuming with a Dyson relaxes me.  I own twelve Batman tshirts.  On a good day I can crack every single joint on all fingers and thumbs on both my hands (sometimes multiple times) and my wrists.  I wish cycling was a more viable commuting option, but for now I just enjoy it for what it is.  I enjoy watching zombies get killed and will use pictures or GIFs to express emotion because it can be superior than using words.  I also pronounce GIF like “jiff.”  I would like to have a pet duck someday because they're cute and they waddle.  Oh, penguins are cute and waddle too!  Decisions, decisions.  If you've made it this far and still find me interesting, hurray, maybe we could be friends in real life.  At some point, I would likely tell you how I believe in God because it was Jesus’ death on the cross and following resurrection that gives my life meaning, as the Holy Spirit empowers me.  I don’t believe I could do it any other way because LIFE is TOUGH.  I am a flawed human, now filled with hope and love. 

If you'd like to contact me for medical advice, product endorsements, or just have a hankering to send a stranger some hate mail, my email is:

why "the Terriblelands"?

I started this blog in 2005.  My website had to have a name (who'd want to read "Tim's Crappy Blog" anyways?) and I considered calling it "the badlands," but that sounded too cool (I had just graduated highschool you see).  And, I was kind of hoping for something unique, not just a rip-off of a desert type of place.  So......the Terriblelands it became! It has a nice ring to it (or a terrible ring). 

Another reason was because of Psalm 47:2 which reads, “For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth."  At first I thought, “...whoah. God? Terrible?” And then I learned that “terrible” is just a synonym for great.  And God is great.  If you don't believe me, go stand on a mountain and look below.  I’d think you'd have a pretty amazing view.  God made all that.  We just tend to use the word "terrible" in a negative sense.

So basically, I’m a narcissist.

Anyways, in all seriousness, try not to waste too much time here.  Life is too short.  But I hope you're amused!
