Responsibility.

17 07 2009

I’m back. But only because there is something I need to get off my chest. Even though it has been like what, 5 days? Its been seething in my head from that event until now. I know you’ll be reading this, but I just do not know any other way to let you know without offending you or your friends.

The first time I entered the team thread, I was amazed and happy to see everyone was so clickable with each other. No arguments, no conflicts, no friction. Eventually, as all cliques do, disagreements would occur, but it’d be solved in a jiffy. No problems there. But what happened on Cosfest Day 2, was just simply unforgiveable to me. To be honest, I thought the 2 of you should have known better.

There we were at BK White Sands rushing through our costumes, wigs and make-up. I think this is the point whereby I need to remind you that you volunteered to do the make up for the team. OUR team. But in the end, you ended up late. Frankly speaking, we were prepared. I’ve always told Oreo that whenever we do an event, we MUST consider the worst case scenario, and then act appropriately. Anything else that happens wouldn’t be THAT bad, and from there we could play it by ear. So we were quite prepared when we found out that your friend left your make-up materials at D’Marquee. OK la. We swallowed our rising tension, and then luckily, Mag, Mayo, Xuri was already on hand to help out with make up. I hope you remember that they are our back up. Not the MAIN make up artiste.

Oreo and I had planned it in such a way, with all the bad scenario’s planted in, that we’d all arrive, ready and good to cosplay, by 1:00pm sharp. Then suddenly, a call came in, saying that you won’t be stepping into Downtown East without your costume and make up on. Okay.. we factored that in. Got on with the plan. Still on track.

The group had to split up after that, because we had to deposit our bags at Mag’s place, whereas the rest went to D’Marquee to get the costumes, wigs and make up done. We figured that you were going to reach soon, and that everything would be fine and dandy. Right after we reached Mag’s place, took a short break, we received news that your best friend and yourself, would be DOING YOUR OWN MAKE UP AND COSTUME AT YOUR FRIEND’S HOUSE BEFORE HEADING DOWN. We were also told that you’d reached by 2:00pm. I would also like to mention that when I called to get things clarified, I was SHOUTED AT OVER THE PHONE, SAYING THAT RECEIVING CALLS FROM US WAS IRRITATING. Yes. IRRITATING. As much as I would have loved to FLICK OFF THE PERSON WHO ANSWERED MY PHONE CALL THERE AND THEN, I was a guest in someone’s house. So I put the phone down.

In my heart, all I could tell myself is; WE HAVE BEEN FUCKED.

True to my word, Oreo and I rushed down to D’Marquee to witness the all-around chaos that was ensuing. Make-up was barely done. Wigs was not styled properly. Basically, the shit had hit the fan. Oreo had a competition to go to, and his make up was more or less, unsatisfactory for competition purposes. But I don’t blame the stand in make-up artistes. They DID THEIR BEST. We got on with it. The Gundam Seed Destiny Team was pretty much fucked too, because of their incomplete make up and costumes. But I don’t blame the girls in their team for that. Because they actually volunteered to help TEAM CODE GEASS with their make-up. Yes. YOUR TEAM. In a way, they put our team first before their own.

So while Oreo went on the compete feeling disappointed, I tried to run things. TRIED. Wigs and make-up. Definitely not Fadzli’s area of specialty. BEST part was, that’s when you came. at 3:00pm. FANTASTIC. Not only did you fuck us up over the make-up. You also FUCKED OUR WORST CASE SCENARIO.

Fast forward to that same night, where your friend actually OFFERED HIS APOLOGY to us for screwing up our make-up arrangements. But do you know something? I don’t blame him AT ALL. Circumstances fucked with him. There was nothing the poor guy could do.

My only question is;

Why did you have to stay in your friend’s place to do YOUR own make-up and leave YOUR TEAM, the ones you PROMISED TO DO THEIR MAKE UP, in the lurch, only to turn up fucking HOURS LATER?

You screwed up arrangements for Team CG, and Team GSD. I am not going into details on how I felt when I was shouted at. I think you would know that if people are drastically calling for you, its because they need your help. But.. we were FUCKED weren’t we?

In your defense, you were sick. Okay. But I don’t see that as being any reason to come down late, or in this case, NOT FUCKING APPEARING to help your team with the make-up.

Oh. And to top it all off. Not even an apology from you. but from your friend yes. In our team thread nonetheless.

I have a very high opinion of you. But after your display on Sunday, there’s a lot of things I have to reconsider. I just hope the photoshoot doesn’t get fucked too.

Sit down and think about it please. Its not everyday I blow up like this, and if I do, its because of something, someone, or some TEAM, that I hold very close to my heart.

Zombified.

17 04 2009

High on zombies today. No no, I did not consume them. But killing over 3,000 zombies in one sitting really feels good!

Met up with Calvin and Wei Zhong for a bit of Left 4 Dead action just now. AH. The best game ever. If you ever need to destress and you wanna feel good and warm all over, play L4D! Its the one game where shooting at humanoids zombies is mandatory, only to save your life. Good trade eh? I actually felt my eyes BURNING after finishing our 3-hour zombie-spraying binge. I got a feeling tonight I will dream of zombies. Left 4 Dead style!

A bit pissed off though. Out of 3 stages we played, I didn’t survive on ONE. And why? Because the damn TANK got to me before I could reach the safety of the rescue vehicle. Tank you say?

Ashley after he ORDs.

Ashley after he ORDs.

This is the one face that strikes terror into every noob L4D player’s hearts, especially when you hear the accompanying cheesy music and see the vibrations on screen of the approaching Tank. So what is so bad about this dude? Well..

  • He has PLENTY of hitpoints. Which means to say you probably need to empty 3 clips of machinegun ammo just to bring down the big guy.
  • He is strong. He hits you one time, your health goes down about 25 hitpoints. Not good, especially when you are being raped overwhelmed by zombies.
  • He treats you like a shuttlecock. SERIOUSLY. One of this guy’s attacks is to swat you away. Personal experience: I once tried to be gung-ho and chionged the fella with nothing but my 2 handguns. He swatted me off the building. Instant death. I’ve never seen Wei Zhong laugh so hard in my life.

He has another friend which I love to hate. The Boomer.

This big, fat, ugly fella has one irritating ability: Vomiting. The vomit actually attracts hordes of the other kuching kurap zombies, which then proceed to rape overwhelm you again. Luckily, because his belly is so full of gas, 5 bullets is enough to blow him up like a balloon. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Needless to say, I LOVE to play the campaign missions, because you’re up against the AI. Me and 3 other friends whom I can trust. Of course, I know Calvin won’t save me if I’m left behind next time, because that’s what I did to him just now. HAHA.

Okay. Now for a bit of indulgence.

I am totally head over heels in adoration for this celebrity:

Bae Seul Ki

Bae Seul Ki

PRETTY RIGHT~!?

It also helps that she’s a wonderful singer, and she can dance as well. She appeared on a couple of Korean variety shows, namely Xman and Love Letter. Her Bokgo (old school) korean dance is damn cool!

She recently released her new album, with the title track Tiresome, featuring Ha Joo Yeon of Jewelry fame. Here’s a video of her recent LIVE performance on KBS’s Music Bank on 3rd April 2009.

Now you can see how pretty she really is! HEHE.  Here’s more eye candy photos for my your viewing pleasure.

If I don’t dream of zombies tonight, I’ll dream of her. No combination of both please. HAHA.

Just a random shoutout: OETLEUMAS, what the hell are you still waiting for~!? Just ask GNITIUHMIS be your girl liao la!





Gluttony.

14 04 2009

Okay something I’m not proud of.

My recent running sojourn has caused me to EAT like a caterpillar on caffeine. A LOT OF FOOD. I have no idea how much rice I downed today, but all I know is, I just ate my probably-5th bowl of rice, 3 pieces of bread, and I’m STILL hungry.

My appetite aside, I managed to get hold of my uncle’s speedlight. Okay now I wannna know, any of you knows how to use it? I tried it over at my grandma’s house, and I didn’t understand it AT ALL. It works like the normal flash I see on the D70s. Except brighter. That’s all there is to it?

I was going through some old photos. Both in my iPhoto and blog. I think I should bring them back again. Shall we?

You can make a wild guess who this is.

My Chalet-war-mates. I was sleeping through it actually.

Been doing a lot of anime-watching lately. Code Geass, Gundam Seed Destiny & Devil May Cry. Finishing up Boys Over Flowers.. and then I got nothing else to watch. Recommendations anyone?

Remember I mentioned that I like meaningful lyrics? Here’s a song that I really ADORE for the lyrics. Clay Aiken’s Everything I Have;

I feel like I never measure up to who you see
Sometimes I think I can’t give you all the love you need
You keep changing everyday
Amazing me in every way.

If I could be the perfect man in your eyes
I would give all I’m worth to be a part of your life
I could promise the world but it’s out of my hands
I can only give you everything I have

I never dreamed I could ever feel the way I do
I hope and pray I will always be enough for you
I can only do my best
I have to trust you with the rest

If I could be the perfect man in your eyes
I would give all I’m worth to be a part of your life
I could promise the world but it’s out of my hands
I can only give you everything I have

I promise I will hold you through the changes and fears
When life seems unclear
And when I can’t be right there with you
I know there’s angels by your side

If I could be the perfect man in your eyes
I would give all I’m worth to be a part of your life
I could promise the world but it’s out of my hands
I can only give you everything

If I could be the perfect man in your eyes
I would give all I’m worth to be a part of your life
I could promise the world but it’s out of my hands
I can only give you everything… I have

Kind of describes the way I feel too..





Leveller.

8 04 2009

WTH~!? Man Utd were so promising in the last 10 minutes. Went behind in the 4th minute thanks to wonderful secondary school defending. Got level in the 15th minute thanks to kindergarten level defending. Scored a wonderfully worked goal through an Argentinean that does nothing but run around. AND.. conceded a goal right at the death! SERIOUSLY! I could have placed Wei Zhong there, and HE could have done a better job. WTF man. Stayed up for nothing.

The good thing is, I get to watch another high-level game tonight, with Chelsea taking on Liverpool. YEAH. I wonder whether Rafa Benitez is gonna rotate his players again. Maybe put Dossena as centre-back, just for kicks! HAHA.. either way, I’m a neutral in that game. I hate Chelsea, and I refuse to acknowledge the existence of Liverfools.. eh I mean Liverpool. I WOULD though, honestly like to meet Liverpool in the next round.

Here’s an update on the upcoming game this weekend. Well, there is NO MORE game, because the church team hasn’t enough players. At least they informed us early. Looks like our first game will have to wait then!

OK for all of you K-Drama fans out there. There’s a new drama series coming soon to SBS, starring the young man with the great voice, Lee Seung Gi.

Shining Inheritance Promo Picture

From left to right; Bae Soon Bin, Han Hyo Joo, Moon Chae Won & Lee Seung Gi

Storyline:
Eun Sung (Han Hyo Joo) was a kind-hearted girl who has everything, a loving father, a rich and happy family. But her step-mom, Baek Sung Hee (Kim Mi Sook) took away all her properities upon the death of her father and forced her to fend for herself while raising her real daughter ‘Seung Mi’ (Moon Chae Won) with great care. Luckily for Eun Sung who has a talent in cooking, she was accepted to a food company ‘Honey combs’ which is owned by the SunWoo family (unknowing that SunWoo family and her family’s grandparents are friends). But things are to get compilcated for her when she starts working for them as both SunWoo Hwan (Lee Seung Gi), the successor to the food company and Park Jun Se (Bae Soo Bin), a Fusion restaurant owner with an upcoming arranged marriage to Woo Hwan’s younger sister “Woo Jung” (Han Ye Won) get attracted to her.

Sounds complicated right? K-drama usually is. Lovers in Paris and Boys Over Flowers are testaments to that fact. But they also have good storylines. Anyway, I’m watching this because there’s Lee Seung Gi in it. I hope soompi subs this, if not, I’d have to make do with GUESSING what’s happening. And that sucks.

More promo pictures from the show!

THAT is a limited edition Harley Davidson.

I had a great breakfast with Marcus this morning. And whatever he said to me moved a few thoughts in my head. Its still a mess and a jumble of strings now, but, I now realized all I’m doing is torturing myself.

I think its time to wake up, and look ahead. =)





Huiting’s 20th!

7 04 2009

Ok this part is for my “sister” for 8 years, a certain Ms Sim Huiting, who turns 20 today!

Ting & Me

Thank you so much for being around whenever I need a listening ear! All the best to you and ____. HAHAHAHAHA!! More chicken rice and beancurd suppers in the future!

Come to think of it, what IS the definition of a perfect birthday celebration? I remember, my 17th birthday celebration in Jin Tai, with Shumei, Chermaine, Huiqi, Sally, Xiuxin, Thierry, Gin Min.. practically the whole bunch of volleyball peeps. Stayed in SCHOOL to celebrate. Imagine that. But it was fun! Waterbombs, truth or dare.. I remember they made me hold Huiqi’s hand. HAHA.

My 18th birthday, I went to meet Joanna, Pearl and Kai Yan for some cakes at MAC. Ginza Plaza. Another legendary place. The cakes were good! but I remember almost choking on the tiramisu powder though.. lols.

And then there’s my 21st birthday. Celebrated in style at Sentosa. PLENTY of people around. Practically the old Cine Clique was there. After a while though, half of them left because they thought it was boring, without doing anything. That made me pretty upset actually. Then Tiffany came up with the idea of a ice-cream birthday cake from 7-11. NICE. Really enjoyed that.

Jump 2 years, to my 23rd celebration last year. Held it at Calvin’s place, BBQ style. A lot of people who said they’ll be able to come did not appear, so there was massive wastage of food. And then I remember the Rabbit Incident. lols. Isaac brought his rabbit given by Steph, who eventually passed away. So a whole bunch of them went out to bury the poor little fella. After that came the Frog Incident, where Calvin, Darren and Shiying witnessed the death of a frog run over by a car on the road. Calvin, being Calvin, screamed. lols. So they came back traumatised and valuing their lives much more. Anyway, I can’t remember much after that.

Do you see the pattern there?

That’s the reason why I don’t have an answer when both Ting and Ryan asked how I was going to celebrate my birthday. To tell you the truth, I even FORGOT it was my birthday month until they asked me. Birthdays come once a year.. but after all that’s happened, especially in the last 5, its getting to be a torture just celebrating this day, because eventually, people won’t turn up, or they’ll do something else. Even in my blog archive, I didn’t have an April 2008 entry at all, and the celebration was given a cursory mention in the May entry. I think even back then, I’ve realized that celebrating my birthday is a lost cause, its just that I kept denying it because.. I’m like that.

Ok enough ranting. On to other stuff.

The player list for the coming match on Saturday as follows:

James
Khim
Marcus
Dickson
Fadzli
Firdaus
Calvin
Luke

Yeah that’s all for now. Hopefully, the game’ll go ahead.
