How am I doing

You Are a Carnation

You are down to earth and grounded.
You tend to be more traditional than trendy.
Your confidence gets you through anything.
People trust you and are very loyal to you.
What Flower Are You?

Lol! I have just pulled an iheartbadtz! =)
I found this survey from Kawaiiness MB, and idk, it just happens that I rather like Carnation =) My favorite flowers include Lily, white roses, and dandelion too.

Just feel like telling how I am doing rite now =D I have been earnestly procrastinating in doing my Synoptic assignment, which equals to final dissertation and thesis for my last four months in college. Correction: procrastinate in starting to do my Synoptic and I have no excuses:(

Now I only have two weeks to finish it, and by that time I will have another 3 assignments on queue. I am lucky that I got the best lecturer as my supervisor but that’s beside the point. I only hope that I can keep my life in balance. I really” want to score this semester - All the B+ I got for my results and possibility of just graduating second upper haunt me to my dreams D: I don’t know for sure if I have ruined my chances or not (maybe I have but better left in the dark where there is still hope)!

Now I’d like to give virtual hugs for you and all my Sanriotown friends :D


Next post will be the 5 best nights that I have been delaying to post! :D

*Little Sev*

Thanks Winyen

Happy Birthday, Malaysia!!

Sunday, August 26th, 2007

Well technically it won’t be until 31st of August, but the fireworks showing, Colours of Malaysia 2007, has been on since last week.

I was THISclose to viewing it last friday. I missed the event, sadly, because that same day my friends (supposedly me too) were going to Putrajaya to watch it, I was in terminal stage of craving for chocolate cake from the weekly night market in Nilai. T_T


Tell you what, I just proved that choosing between the tempting strawberries or magnificent fireworks, can deeply torn people (or your stomach in this case) apart.

It goes something like this:
Yay to cake!! =DD
No, no, better watch the fireworks. Save money also. Y_Y;;
hey, cake is much more delicious.. and can cure your crankiness too! (:
But!, says my not so hungry alter ego, It will be so fun just to hang out with friends.
Ah you mean the taking photos part… ~_^!
well that too…
you know the antidote to your problem? Whipped cream. Loads of it!
Well, when is the last time you have that much fun, last year?!
“….” *stomach growls*

The lost cause battle of the mind resumed on and on for a few good hours.

If it was a bad decision or a stomach-friendly one I do not know, but finally I reckoned that satisfying my taste buds with chocolate chip layered cake with strawberries was marginally better than 5 minutes viewing of something you can’t eat, not to mention the crowds and sleepover afterwards that was bound to happen -_-” I went to the night market alone (as every living soul I know was heading to Putrajaya) and spent the night fattening myself while watching Jigoku Shoujo. I at least gained two kilos just on both cheeks!! O_O

Worth it though :]

siggie: Steffi. yeah.

Of pop corn and Osim massage chair lovers

Sunday, August 19th, 2007

My family and I got to watch a special screening of Rush Hour 3 premiere on 8th of August, held on Genting International Showroom! :D I reckoned there were probably around 400+ people in that room, even on a midnight showing. Gosh, it was a quite nice experience, minus the non-Osim, I mean the non-cozy chair of course (my you-know-where still hurts XDD).

So, Rush Hour 3. I have watched the series ever since I was a little kid, if truth be told, I am a big Jackie Chan fan (haha. don’t laugh it’s not even remotely funny *makes straight face*):P Anyhow, the duration felt too short, but we had fun laughing!! I will admit though, the story line is pretty cheesy and gets cheesier in exponential rate, instantly bore us with its silly and overused plot (been there, done that *yawn*). Yet, this is conviniently covered with the jokes, that are granted lame ones (what is your name? my name is Yu. No what is your name?!?!), but maybe that fact is covered by something else since the audience, when not laughing, they.. funny I actually did not know what they do instead of laughing and laugh some more O_O”

So, one of the plus points from RH3 is that, you will or might have a good laugh 70% throughout the movie. Jackie-Tucker pairing is hilarious, and seeing how Tucker has to bear his often stupid lines and some sirius-ly lame jokes in both words and action (Michael Jackson impersonation -_-”), I wonder how one could still get it done. George, the french taxi driver is also adorable! For a minute, I thought there would be a crossover between Rush Hour and Taxi haha.

Well not stopping until that.

If you thought that Rush Hour 3 is the only thing in France this summer, you are so wrong. In the heart of Paris, I found this too, no no this one is a li’l bit smaller in size and tastier,,, =D

Ah yes…


Bon appétit!
The strawberries, cheese, gourmet rat, Martha Stewart kinds of grand kitchen and Eiffel Tower. It is all enough to make you love to eat, I mean, watch Ratatouille, literally a kind of food in French.

Ratatouille: vegetable dish consisting of onions, zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers, fried and stewed in oil and sometimes served cold.

Based on my unbelievably useful Apple dictionary :D

Sounds (and looks) very yummy. I love the French song, Le Festin sang by Camille and composed by Michael Giacchino. Have I told you that I am love-struck with Giacchino’s music composition in LOST? Yes, LOST as in one of my fave TV show :D Le Festin is a beautiful and fun song, even if it’s in incomprehensible French, at least for non French speakers, one excellent example: like me.

les rêves des amoureux sont comme le bon vin
ils donnent de la joie ou bien du chagrin
affaibli par la faim je suis malheureux
volant en chemin tout ce que je peux
car rien n’est gratuit dans la vie

l’espoir est un plat bien trop vite consommé
à sauter les repas je suis habitué
un voleur, solitaire, est triste à nourrir
à nous, je suis amer, je veux réussir
car rien n’est gratuit dans la vie

jamais on ne me dira que
la course aux étoiles, ça n’est pas pour moi
laissez-moi vous émerveiller
prendre mon envol
nous allons enfin nous régaler

la fête va enfin commencer
et sortez les bouteilles, finis les ennuis
je dresse la table, demain nouvelle vie
je suis heureux à l’idée de ce nouveau destin
une vie à me cacher et puis libre enfin
le festin est sur mon chemin

une vie à me cacher et puis libre enfin
le festin est sur mon chemin

The movie is very funny and sad and delicious looking at the same time, but do bring food and pop corn if you are watching, that is if you do not wish to drool over the scenes and leave the cinema in great danger of famine XDD

I am looking forward to watching~ Stardust.

Based on a fantasy novel by Neil Gaiman, from what I have gathered from the trailer, it looks pretty neat and enthralling! 8DD

p.s: I just realised that Sanriotown blog has a coding system to open and close tags, insert image and stuffs o.O! I did not know that and always type the code myself (so tiring) oh well, silly me!

till I blog again :D,

the greasy git

Friday, August 17th, 2007

Alan Rickman is a british actor notably known for his role as Professor Severus Snape in Harry Potter movies. If you recall, he was also the unfaithful prime minister’s brother in law in Love Actually. My mom noted too that he was in earlier series of Die Hard.. which gave back a faint memory, wasn’t he the villain who died falling off from the building he hijacked? Well, so much for trying to outdo John McClaine :D Now now, I find it so hard to believe that Alan Rickman is already 61 years old!! o_O” Gah. Watching him in HP, I would never, never have guessed that… Maybe it’s the wig.. or because Snape is supposed to be only 37 in the last book?


Apart from the age bit thou’, Rickman is just perfect for the role. He’s got the silky voice, which so belongs to Snape,, the hooked nose, plus perhaps the greasy black hair (already so much improved in the last movie,lol). He is just way underrated with Snape’s lack of screen time in HP, and he got like, 2 chapters in Deathly Hallows! Most horribly, I suspect many of those heartbreaking scenes will be done by Alec Hopkins and other kiddie as the young Severus *sobs* ;_; If the director somehow decides to cut short the scene for The Prince’s Tale, I will kill him myself so he better do it right XDDDDD

…I don’t know about you guys, but I have always found Snape to be really hot. Lalala. And no, me saying this is totally unrelated with the fact that he is my most favorite Harry Potter character!! =)

I guess I have developed some sort of fetish for older men (no big news, or even ‘news’ if that matters, but still..). Shoot, I am mental.

*sweat some more* -_-”"

Can anyone guess who the girl beside Snape in the 1st pic is? They are one helluva adorable couple in HP, or at least in the world of fanfiction and Harry Potter AU*. I love Sev :]

OMG, new Hello Kitty Blog themes!!!!!

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007

LOL. I just found ‘em by pure serendipity and perhaps the lack of something to do XD duh, aren’t they adorable!! In addition to previous themes, we can now cutify our blogs with these:

yay!! I guess iheartbadtz will be flipping happy because of the badtz theme ;) I tested all of them, uber cuties!! BUT (If I knew myself, I know I will have a ‘but’.. for I am dark and twisty like that). But, I found the default text abiiiit too bluish black and small for my taste :o The new row on the left for the calender section takes extra space, which kind of makes my blog looks abit weirdish. Maybe it is just me. I have weird taste after all.

So, after some desperate (and failed!) attempts to make peace with the smaller fonts and small, tiny-but-there distortions, I changed back to the usual My Melody theme. Maybe next time. Or next posts. o_O”

Not to stop ’til here, here are my incessantly annoying
Daily Ramblings
Actually it was something that happened a while ago, just yet to rant about it XD
Hmm, I rant and ramble so much I wonder if I should make a special category for this kind of posts.

Oh no!! Should I?!?! :(

written on a sunny afternoon, a decade ago. If you believe it, which I guess you don’t.

I had tried to hide my face with my oversized ESPRIT bag and wish it were my invisible cloak -the real one was still in laundry.
I had, gone as far as circled my college paths nevermind the longer and for sure, hotter route!
Basically done everything except hiding in the restroom :X

STILL!!!! I could not avoid that person. I think my swear of total avoidance backfired a reverse jinx to me, or whichever. So, instead, I walked into the room [where I was supposed to study] only to find that person sitting nicely there, looking up to me as if I somehow had been expected to disapparate to that place but was fifteen minutes late. Hey, paranoia can be good for health too *lower voice* …sometimes.
Anyways. Spent the rest of the day with that person*.

Then as if it was not enough to-make-my-days-not, the next day, the day after tomorrow, and the next day after the day after tomorrow (Excuse moi. Being jinxed causes dizzy head), I just bumped into that person** somemore.

Karma rocks *nods in agreement*

Moral of the story: Should have hid in the restroom :)

P.S. * and ** are marks of my footnote. It is so fun to do that I think I should have footnoted every comments I made in this blog. lol, kidding. My number one priority fine, 177th: I shall never let thee, my readers suffer :D

*: note that I do not give out the gender.
**: still not giving ;)

Have a curious and fun day, ya’all!! :D
