Glasses Makes You Look Better

It has been some time now that I feel that having glasses is cool.
I'm sure those who wear glasses are sure to argue with me that having glasses isn't as cool as it seems and is damn inconvenient.

You have to bring it along all the time. You have to pay for the damn thing. You have to take good care of it. It doesn't come cheap.

Well, my friend, now let me tell you a good news.
Glasses does make you look better.
Here's how.


Priceless huh?
See glasses are cool.
Imma go get one. Maybe.

Al Bhed Translator!

It has been 3 week since my holiday and I've been spending my days doing sports, playing games and surfing the net. As I was surfing, I came across this program, Al Bhed to English Translator.

For those who has no idea what Al Bhed is, do kindly read a quick fact below.

The Al Bhed are a faction of technologists in the role-playing games Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. They are notable for their use of machina (prohibited by the games' dominant Yevon religion) and the Al Bhed language that they speak, and can be recognized by the green spiral pattern visible on the irises of their eyes.

The Al Bhed language is a fictional language that, apart from the main protagonist who may learn it, is spoken only by the Al Bhed people themselves. Although it seems at first like a foreign language, it is actually a cipher, a system of transposing certain letters for others. It shares the same syntax and grammar of English.

Here is how to convert English to Al Bhed:


For example, "you" in English is rendered as "oui" in Al Bhed:

  • Y → O
  • O → U
  • U → I
Certain keywords are not translated into Al Bhed in the game. Most keywords are proper nouns, but some common nouns also are not translated, such as "fiend" ("Y fiend! Eh risyh teckieca!" / A fiend! In human disguise!), "magic" ("Ouin bnaleuic magic yht Aeons yna caymat" / Your precious magic and Aeons are sealed), and "airship".

Now that I've explain what Al Bhe is all about, it's time to have some fun!I'll continue writing in Al Bhed language. To those who are interested to read on, you *can* translate it manually via the reference up there OR download Al Bhed <-> English translator from here!
