Yeah, and you thought it would be so easy to write about one's self...
Fine. The basics: Strizzt; female; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; publishing/press/media; rock music; fantasy novels; The National; The Matrix.
Rantglass was conceived back in December 2001. I also have a photolog of sorts, which, sadly, is rarely updated due to time constraints, available at ray*glass.
Then when Nanowrimo 2005 came about, I created Rhymeglass to keep track of my attempts to write a 50,000-word novel. 'Novel', haha. I managed to clock 52,045 words on November 29, 2005 for Shadowfalls, though.
I also go by the username rhymeglass on Twitter.
I finally got around to starting skies.insatiably.net in January 2006 - which, as its name implies, is all about the lovely blue up there. Sadly, this project lasted for barely a year.

last.fm charts available here.
Reveres images of magical, fantasy worlds.
Loves reading books about: mysterious dark elves, tiny hobbits, powerful mages, dangerous maidens and striding rangers living in dark realms, battling to see good triumph over evil. Can never tire of flipping through the pages of the Icewind Dale and Dark Elf trilogies (R.A. Salvatore); the Farseer and Tawny Man series (Robin Hobb); and the Dragonlance Chronicles (Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman).
May also occasionally be found reading sci-fi and other fantasy such as the Ender series (Orson Scott Card) and selected books from Philip K. Dick, David Mitchell and Haruki Murakami.
Bits and pixels.
Used to be found in front of the computer, playing strategy and role playing games such as Planescape: Torment, Icewind Dale, Neverwinter Nights, Simcity, The Sims, Warcraft, Starcraft, Age of Empires, Command and Conquer, Caesar III, Rise of Nations... and Minesweeper. Now still occasionally whipping up experimental images from image editing softwares such as Photoshop.
Scrolling green code.
The Matrix. Yearns to question reality and likes to be inspired by thought provoking elements, reading up on symbolism and other enlightening materials from the movie. Also finds excitement in sitting through thrilling and action-packed movies, and ones set in distant, fantasy realms.
Also finds time no matter what to tune in to TV series 24, The Amazing Race, Entourage, Fringe, Lost and Modern Family.
insatiably.net is my
personal space on the Internet. If you are in dire need of webspace online, feel free to apply for hosting by sending me an email. At the moment, insatiably.net is only open to hosting by invitation - but if you think you do have what it takes, why not? I give priority to creative and dedicated individuals who love expressing themselves and inspiring others through art; be it in writing, poetry, design, music, photography, and more.
