Jolly Weekend Message


It’s either that you don’t have the time, or you don’t feel like blogging once a new semester in college commences. There’s just so much to do i.e. girls day out, attending lectures, pool gathering/party/playing and in between you’d just wanna take a chill pill. If you’re wondering about project work and assignments, yeah, it’s somewhere in there.

Even though I really look up to those who update their blogs on the go—someone once updated their labor process, no kidding—I’m just not one of those highly motivated to report that I grew another zit or that I’m going to the college mart in 5 minutes.

Point is, I will try to post twice weekly if things go well. I always post to keep my interests in check, so if the posts seem sluggish, means that I prolly have got no interests in insects or chimpanzees during the week.

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll post something else soon.

Whaddya Want From Me

No seriously, whaddya want from me??
Here you go, cheap thrills in life. *winks*

Go Adam Lambert! Go Adam! Go Adam!

He totally rocks this one. Frankly love this one much better than "for your entertainment", even though that was good also. I know he's gay, but that doesn't mean we have to stop drooling. Hahah

Shop. Till. You. Drop.

When I'm feeling really really uninspired, I usually do 3 things:

Shop, go somewhere, or hang out with people who talk nonstop.

I really wanted to do something, but couldn't and I don't know how, so I got kinda frustrated and down. Then my mom announce that we're going to do some shopping today and I got all excited.

At the end of the day, I ended up doing all three things and I can't even begin to tell you how high I was.

I could shop for anything. You name it, clothes, make-up, scarves, toiletries, toys, carpets, furniture, jewelery, books, shoes, handbags, anything. I salivate hearing 3 magic words -- "Let's. go. shopping."

I'm satisfied enough being the shopping assistant without shopping myself, as long as something new is obtained. I'm the very definition of a shopaholic and I don't wanna be cured.

After a round of shopping extravaganza in the morning, me and mom-ster headed to Toys'r'us to pick up something for my youngest bro who's about to turn 11. I got so chuffed and headed towards the action figures. I knew in my bones that my bro would bow to me for buying him a batman figurine.

Apparently, mom gets spooked by the figurine, as any other tall, dark, caped thing does--so in the end we opted for a red darth vader lightsaber, after failing to convince mom into buying a 20 bullet toy gun. It doesn't matter, more star points for my Toysrus membership card!

As for supercool finds this month:

  1. Qirani t-shirts
  2. Body Shop make-up brushes
  3. Esprit outlet in Alamanda, Putrajaya (old news, still)
  4. Levi's outlet in Metro Kajang ( eventhough place is cringey, still worth it)
  5. Primavera shoes ( for some reason they're getting cheaper for same quality)

I'll elaborate later. That's it. Till next time!

AI vs AF?


Call me whatever you want but I don’t really know much about the Malaysian music scene except for some very select few like Siti Nurhaliza (awh shut up haters), Hujan, Faizal Tahir etc etc.

I always thought those who catches my attention are REALLY good. I latch on to American Idol like rabid fever and if you’ve seen how stringent the whole process is, you’ll get an idea of how strong each contestant’s singing voice is.

So whenever I flip through channels and Akademi Fantasia is on, sometimes I’d pause to check it out. Guys.. I dunno. I think Akademi Fantasia is a watered down version of American Idol. Sure the concepts are different but I’m talking about the vocal prowess.

American Idols are lions to Akademi Fantasia’s kittens.

Can you imagine Mawi singing Michael Jackson? Let that question simmer. Danny Gokey did, Adam Lambert did. Powerful voices and ranges. Adam Lambert could definitely hit a Faizal Tahir song. That’s why I think American Idol rocks and AF does not.

We need more singers with powerful voices, like her:

Plenty of love. xoxo

Friends or Foe

How To Have a Beautiful Mind

OK. I totally ripped off the title from a book.

If you’re anything like me, you’d have book genre seasons. What it means is that, you’d stay away from certain genres and you’d really have the fire to plow through another. This month I’m staying away from fiction and going into non-fiction.

Hard to explain. It’s like suddenly getting tired of chocolate chip ice-cream (as if) and preferring strawberry or something.

Well the good thing is, I’m not putting anymore dragon/witches/vampire boyfriend/death wish ideas into the grand head (now you have an idea of last season). Bad thing is, this non-fiction business is having me spend ALOT more. Plus I'm not easily content with one measly book. Psshh. And I don’t borrow, ‘cause I tend to have oops—roti canai dal spill moments and the apologizing, the admitting to clumsiness just gets old.

Whereas with my own book, I can just burn when something spills on it. Just kidding –_-

Anywaaays, if you used to be a lucky son of a gun who turned into an old fart who just lost his job or a young fart who got kicked out of school or you’re just simply someone who needs that motivation down there in the dumps, then you’d better pick up this book:-

How Starbucks Saved My Life, by Michael Gates Gill

Inspiring indeed. One great read indeed.

Somebody uploaded this image to a forum from which I downloaded. Apparently he takes the book wherever he goes and loves the book so much that you can see scratches at the bottom from him trying to pull out the book when it got run over by a bike. What else could explain those marks on the book?

Either that or the guy has some serious unresolved issues with Michael Gill.

Why Bollywood Movies Are Better Than Hollywood Movies

1. They recycle the actors/actresses so you get to see your favorite actors/actresses over and over

2. Just when you feel like a yawn coming on, they break into an upbeat song-dance number

3. With each movie clocking at an average of plus minus 3 hours, you’ll be sure to have filled that otherwise uninspiring afternoon of deep sleeping with useful geographical and culture lesson

4. The amazing dance choreography

Rabne Bana Di Jodi

5. The amazing dancers

6. The amazingness of dancers coming out of nowhere when main actors break into a song

    7. The chiseled good looks of Bollywood actors and actresses


    Deepika Padukone


    Preity Zinta


    Anushka Sharma

    Saif Ali Khan

    Saif Ali Khan


    Arjun Rampal


    Hrithik Roshan

    Anyway, you get the picture…

    8. Location, location, location

    New York



    9. How heartbreaking it is to watch Shah Rukh Khan’s face when he’s about to cry

        10. You don’t speculate, you don’t guess. You KNOW it’s a happily ever after ending!!

        Say Grace
