Move.

Cristiano Ronaldo is probably making the WORST decisions in his career right now.

First. He’s moving to Real Madrid. REAL MADRID! The White Storm. Where the fans can just suddenly turn against you for just ONE bad performance. Forget about the 20 goals in the past 16 games.. bla bla bla. Look at Michael Owen. People forget he WAS from Real Madrid, where he did PRETTY WELL coming from the bench. Let’s see whether Ronaldo can perform as well as he did at Manchester United.

This is the one that really shocked the hell out of me. Cristiano Ronaldo is dating. Not just any supermodel mind you. He’s dating PARIS HILTON. YES. The figure that made sex tapes trendy all around the world. Check out the news here. Seriously I tell you. Even Cristiano’s mum is not agreeable with her. She thinks they can be the new Becks and Posh. Pui. Scary. I wouldn’t want to imagine the strains of STDs she might carry in her.

okay, moving on from disgusting news. I finally decided on the 2 places I wanna visit, or retire to, before I die.

New Zealand and South Korea.

New Zealand, you guys probably knew it already. I simply ADORE New Zealand. Just look at the Lord of Rings trilogy, was was shot in NZ. The scenery is FANTASTIC! Who wouldn’t want to wake up to this scenery every morning?

My room window view.

My room window view.

View from the other window.

View from the other window.

Hell yeah. Throw in the sheep too. Hari Raya Haji sacrifice.. MUTTON….

OK I bet the 2nd choice shocked you guys… a bit.

Other than my undying love for Korean female artistes Sun Ye WG, Yoona SNSD, Yoon Eun Hye, Goo Hye Sun, Son Dambi, Lee Hyori and Bae Seul Ki, I love the culture, the people and.. the countryside.

Don’t believe me? Check out this show called Family Outing. The show’s premise is simple. A group of celebrities (6 permanent cast with 1 guest) are sent out to the Korean countryside to help out a family with their household/daily stuff while that said family goes for a vacation. Besides the ensuing chaos and hilarity, the cut scenes showing the natural beauty of South Korea’s countryside is simply breath-taking. Check it out if you like to watch something really unique and laugh-all-the-time kinda fun. Follow this link here. Brings you straight to Youtube. The channel has english subtitles!

My fever has subsided. Thank goodness. I hope my appetite returns as well.

Thrills.

14 06 2009

Yesterday was probably the most spastic funniest day I’ve ever had with the team. lols.

We went to Scape opposite Cine for the StreetFest, basically an event for cosplayers all over Singapore. Saw a few familiar faces, plenty of characters, a lot of disgusting things as well. Shall not elaborate. lols. I refused to bring my camera yesterday, because it was just as I expected, a lot of photogs, but less cosplayers. Which means, this hypothetical scenario keeps repeating over and over again.

Me: Hi, can I take a picture of you?
Cosplayer: SURE!
*poses*

And suddenly, your prime spot to adjust your body to get the perfect frame and angle is suddenly assailed by photographers armed with all manners of zoom lenses, flash and other camera paraphernalia which I don’t even know their names. In short, they were like a bunch of pirahnas.

"EH QUICK! That one posing liao!"

"EH QUICK! That one posing liao!"

Then there were some of them who actually went there to just.. gawk. Not to look and enjoy the atmosphere of people who enjoy cosplaying, but to ogle and make crude remarks. I don’t even know what to say about these guys.

Anyway, after the whole thing was over, we went over to that new, funky shopping centre opposite Centrepoint. And yes, I forgot the name and I am lazy to freakin Google it. Anyway, the place has this cool escalator running from the 4th floor to 7th floor on the freakin EXTERIOR of the building. So we went up, acting like a bunch of really noob tourists. LOLS. At the top, we got ready the cake we prepared for Bryan, coz it was his birthday! After plenty of laughter, comments, insults and jokes.. we took the lift down to the 4th floor.. to go up the escalator again. LOLS!

YES spastic I know. But its a cheap thrill! Once back on the 7th floor, we spied a really tall circular makan place at the top of Meritus Mandarin, and we decided to go over, JUST to see what it was.

38 floors and a embarassing moment later, we found out it was a lounge bar call Chatterbox. lols. So we went back down and called it a night. Some of us went to Cine for a drink, and that’s that for Saturday.

This morning, woke up to a fever. Yay. And as I type this entry down, my nose is dripping like a water tap. Hai.

CURSE YOU FICKLE WEATHER!!





Naturally Rebellious.

11 06 2009

You know sometimes how your ear has this ringing sound whenever you stand too close to something loud, or, you stand right beside a bass booster stereo in a club? Well, I did the latter stunt yesterday at Rebel, and now my ears feels like Qifa Primary’s school bell ring. Its like perpetually recess time, all the time.

But I understand now why Samantha loves Rebel so much. Damn happening. I had to leave early though, and Marcus said the music got better later on at night. Was there with old primary matey Kuan Sian and his JC friends, Fiona and Jennifer. lols. The music was good, the atmosphere was good.. Rebel next Wednesday anyone? lols.

This morning, I had a very interesting conversation with a close friend of mine. She was relating to me her relationship problem, pertaining to communication. The problem was, the guy didn’t contact her enough. The worst case was when they actually went several days without talking to one another for like even 10 minutes, and with periodic SMSes (and when I say periodic, its more like 5 – 6… per day). The thing is, she’s feeling insecure about the whole situation, She doesn’t know what to do.

So I told her what most people would think makes the most sense. Tell the fella. See how he reassures you. And she pretty much said what I expected the reply would be; “Reassuring the girlfriend also need people to tell him?”

Okay, the thing is, all guys can be jerks, and they can be utterly chivalrous gentlemen. I admit, I can be a jerk sometimes, and then I have my good moments as well. How you define a guy that is good for life, is the number of jerk moments they have against the number of gentlemanly moments I suppose. Here is another fact: Guys are, surprisingly, humans too.

Which means, we have our bad moments on a regular basis. Ok let me take the abovementioned situation for example. Yes, I do admit that we guys have to be proactive in reassuring our partners that things will be fine. But the thing is, once that is done, and things are settled, the girl suddenly decides that the guy now is on autopilot mode, and would know know when and how to reassure her. That’s big mistake No. 1.

Remember I mentioned earlier that we guys are humans? Well, that’s because sometimes we need that occasional reminder too.. Just like how I know some of you love to hear sweet nothings from each other, this communication thing is an on-going tool too. We’re not psychics, so we definitely can’t read your minds. Not all guys are the same.. and some of us needs a reminder once in a while, in the form of a casual chat, or serious talk, or even an SMS or love letter. The thing is, we NEED YOU TO LET US KNOW. Eventually, we WILL go on autopilot, and you won’t need to remind us guys so often.

I got a feeling I know where this “my-boyfriend-must-and-should-know-when-to-reassure-me” concept is from. THIS DUDE:

No. 1 on a girl's wishlist.

No. 1 on a girl's wishlist.

If you’ve read the Twilight series (and I have, and I own all 4 books. Epic fact.), you’d know that this guy could practically communicate to Bella and reassure her, make her happy and all the like. BUT, unlike us, he’s a 100 year old vampire who decides to turn vegan with this uber good looking doctor and his family of vampires. See where I’m coming from? And I bet, the same concept can be found in countless other romantic dramas, movies, Korean and Japanese drama serials.

FACT: Those are all scripted. Whereas your relationships are not.

Knowing all these things, being on autopilot, being able to rush out and meet her at any point of the day.. bla bla bla.. kinda makes Edward like a robot doesn’t it?

Future Edward Cullen.

Future Edward Cullen.

Anyway, to continue with the story, I told my friend whatever I said above. and she said “OK, I go tell him for the 500th time”.

Besides implying that she actually counts the number of times she has spoken to him (which is waaaay into OCD), she’s saying that she’s been telling him A LOT of times about the situation, and he just ain’t doing anything about it. If that happens to you, then my female friends, all of you should do this:

Eunuch in the making.

Eunuch in the making.

Minus the horrifying look of wrath and anger of course. Not sexy. The look on the guy’s face is just.. fantastic.

What do you think? Not about the eunuch, about what I mentioned earlier. Makes sense? Fair?

Just try the communication thing. It’ll do wonders.





Checkpoint.

1 06 2009

Wow. Its now June. damn fast eh? Felt so alive in January, blinked, and now its the midway point of 2009. 6 more months, and then it’ll be 2010! So before that arrives, its always good to do a check on yourself.

For example, I managed to do 90% of what I set myself out to do. The only glaring void; my driving license. THAT, will have to wait a bit more longer. hehe.

This year is gonna be a slack year for me, because I just found out my application to SIM has been accepted, albeit for the January 2010 batch, not the July 2009 one. I won’t complain though, because I was feeling down throughout the whole month because of this, which would explain my lack of entries. I’ve got 6 more months to spare, and I’m looking for another job to supplement my tuition one.. Suggestions anyone?

Celebrated my dear sister Kuro’s birthday last weekend. Here some scandalous pictures from the get-together!

Group Photo 1. The guy on the extreme left looks like WEI ZHONG!

Kuro was seriously surprised to see us over at her place, because each of us were “busy” with our own stuff.. so we literally caught her off guard. lols. So besides the usual fooling around, drinks and plenty of laughter, we followed up with dinner at Al-Azhar. Note to self: Prata Boom is DAMN SWEET. Eat it only once a year. Also have to remember to stop doing Hardgay impersonations. Have to wait till Bryan comes back. lols.

Speaking of the team, I’ve been arrowed to do their dance for them. Yes. Me. This dance-rusty 24 year old whose joints have long crusted over and unable to move as smoothly as he did 10 years ago. BUT. I’m still taking up the challenge, and one trophy from that would be my left ankle giving way again. lols. I MUST show them something by Saturday. I’m not too overwhelmed by the challenge, just.. unprepared for it? I wasn’t a choreographer in the first place, I just bite from videos, and maybe tweak them here and there. But I’m still gonna show them a good dance to perform for the competition. That’s my mid-year super short term resolution!

Whilst on the topic of years, I met up with a group of my primary schoolmates last Friday. Marcus, Steven, Yuhui and Pei Rong. I was like, WOW, because time really flies so fast, because when I think about it, the last time all of us were together was all the wwwaaaaayyyy back in Primary 3, 15 years ago. Marcus left us in Primary 4 for greener pastures in what ironically is now Yew Tee, and I haven’t seen the 2 girls since I left Qifa. The stories we exchanged, the memories that were revived.. absolutely nostalgic! I just wanted to live it all over again you know. We didn’t take any photos that day, but I made a promise to myself, that when the next gathering comes, there’ll be MORE peeps and then I’m gonna bring my camera along. With a tripod stand if I have to. lols.

I just realized that when I went through my iTunes playlist, I haven’t updated any of my Korean songs yet. I went on K-pop music spree, and I’m gonna list down a few songs to note if you into the Hallyu wave!


I’m doing this dance! For fun.


She’s the new Lee Hyori. Nosebleed alert!


Check out the lyrics. Very touching.

If you want any of these songs, look me up in MSN or FB. =)

OK. This is for all you blog shoppers out there *looks at Jocelyn and Angela*. There’s a new blogshop in town, run by our very own Cine Bimbo, Evan!

michicaloves – COLLECTION #A

The blogshop, which caters to the female population of the nation, has a good choice of casual and semi-formal attire perfect to grace any occasion, bringing style and glamour to whichever event of your choosing! There’s a mailing list as well, so you can be kept informed of new designs brought in! Hai. Suddenly, I wish there was a list of male blogshops I could go through. hehe. Check out the blogshop y’all!





Epic

13 05 2009

Okay. Learned my lesson. Never am I gonna click on things I shouldn’t click. Its like opening a Kinder Bueno egg… that’s already sour and rotten.

Since its been 7 days, I guess this entry’s gonna be… epic? long? Well, I’ll just write down what I wanna write down. Please forgive me if it looks like a chapter from Twilight. lols.

4th of May:

Attended a live concert of sorts by local band En-X! I only heard their songs from Wei Zhong, and they’re pretty good. But in my opinion, they sound a lot lot better playing the way they did at Concourse in Esplanade. I brought my D70s along with me, just to take photos, and they sounded so good, my butt was literally glued to my seat, and I only took from that angle. BAD photography. But who cares, the music was good! Photos coming up.

The whole entire band for that day for the Concourse performance. The lead 3 are the main members of the band, whereas the last 2 guys at the back, on the drums and the guitar, and special guests for the performance!

Upon reaching home, I told myself that I should have used a higher shutter speed. lols. Excuse me. photo-talk.

Anyways, you can check out En-X on their Myspace and Facebook profiles. Links as given! Listen to the songs Never Be The Same and Everything Will Be Alright. My favourite songs!

Other than that, I’ve been spending my days at home. Running. Watching anime online. More running. AND, according to my mum, my appetite has increased 3 fold. OOOH.. I’m gonna look like a Boomer soon.

Oh yeah speaking of Boomer, I’ve been going for plenty of L4D as well! Oreo is now addicted to Survival mode. Frankly, it IS fun, but if the objective is to just SURVIVE a never ending onslaught of rotten zombies, what’s the point? I kinda find it.. dull after a while. At least in Campaign mode, you have an objective to finish. Survival mode? I still don’t see it, but its still exhilirating to shoot down wave and wave and wave and wave and wave and wave and wave and wave and wave of zombies, followed by a random number of Tanks, Smokers and Boomers. Comedy central I tell you.

Last weekend, the team went back to that cursed place to catch soft toys again. lols. I spent $14 bucks, without catching anything. WTF. The Marksman game increased to $2. I got so demoralized, I missed all my attempts. DAMN IT. Disappointing.

And before you guys judge me and assume I’m getting my money from my mum, I’m not! I’m starting work tonight, at a tuition centre in Jurong West. Tutoring English, obviously my BEST ever subject. Let me teach the kids anything else, and it’ll probably turn out disastrous. lols.

Oh well. Wish me luck!





Mood = 0

6 05 2009

This is spastic.

Here I was, ready to blog about all the things I wanted to let out, when I saw something I shouldn’t have even LAID my eyes on.

Mood is GONE.

FUCK. I’m a useless piece of THRASH. CAN’T EVEN PURGE MYSELF PROPERLY.

I HATE me.

PLUSHIES. Except for 1.

PLUSHIES. Except for 1.

That picture on top pretty much sums up my weekend. lols. The whole Team had plushie catching machine fever. and I think its all my fault.

Marina Square has this really cool shop that is full of that money-sucking-scam-filled claw machines that promises you a soft toy if you manage to grip the toy properly. The Team walked past it, and Shiro and Kousagi were enamoured by that big Stitch in the photo. So after the guy was done, I realized I had several one dollar coins in my pocket, and itchy-itchy-itchy put it inside to try my luck. And as always, I missed. But it was this <——> close. So I tried again. Eventually, I managed to do it, with Oreo’s help, and I gave it to Kousagi. By this time, EVERYONE was playing.

So my returns yesterday were;

  1. The big Stitch (Gave Kousagi)
  2. 2 turtles (Gave Kousagi)
  3. 1 Pooh Bear (Gave Oreo)
  4. 1 Pooh Bear in a cow suit (Got passed around, and landed up with Mayi. lols)

Yeah. I didn’t bring any back. The best was Ben though. There was this particular machine called Marksman, which isn’t the typical claw machine. But you had to control a pushing pointer on 2 vectors, up and right, and then manouver it to push down a metal plate bearing a number, through a random shape done in acrylic plastic. Confusing? You gotta see the machine to understand the mechanics of it. lols. Ben spent 3 bucks doing nothing but understanding the game. DAMN funny. OK la, among all of us, he spent the most, so he got the most plushies.

Really reminds me of the days in Cine and PS where we ended up with;

The big one behind was part of Catch 3, Get him free option. We left it at Hougang.

This was on the first day Cineleisure arcade brought in the claw machine. Darren went nuts.

STITCH! Hot favourite.

STITCH! Hot favourite.

This is all the result of watching Darren plot, plan and manouver his way around to catch one.. only for him to miss, cuss, followed by a few dramatic turns and facial expressions and den followed by changing more money to play. He usually gets it at the next attempt though. I had the same reactions yesterday, but spent a bit more money than him. lols. Grass will taste damn good next week.

Picture of the day:

Eriol, with Shiro's Dollfie.. whose name slipped my mind.

Eriol, with Shiro's Dollfie.. whose name slipped my mind.

Check out the doll on Eriol’s arm. I found out yesterday its actually a HOBBY. so I looked it up.

Dollfie (I believe that version of Dollfie is in that page)

Think Barbie, except with much more cooler clothes, funky hairstyles, blue tack and no gay-looking Ken doll. Kousagi and Shiro have one. And I see the way they invest in the dolls.. I got one complain though. I can’t differenciate between guys and girls. That doll up there, its a guy.

CANNOT SEE RIGHT?

And the other thing that freaked me out, was how easily detachable the dolls were. This was demonstrated to me over dinner one night, when Kousagi and Shiro was discussing their dolls, when suddenly Shiro simply detached her doll’s head into two equal pieces. It was like breaking an egg, albeit SMOOTHLY. I had maggi goreng sitting inside my mouth being chewed, and I was quite close to having it being maggi goreng on Mayi’s face instead. Imagine Saw. That freaky. Or maybe I’m just a big ayam.

Marina Square anyone? lols.
