Damn proud of them. :)

Spoiler Alert. Done out of boredom.

A few movies i watched recently. :)

Pantang Mengundur sebelum berlawan

It's nothing like Yasmin Ahmad's Sepet but it had an odd mix of cultures in this movie. Sumo-lah focuses on the rules behind the sport applied in daily life.

The plot was rather predictable lol. But still, pretty good for a local movie! 2 hours for this was rather long though but if you are a Gurmit fan, you will sit through this (zoning out occasionally, if you must.). :P

I was just waiting for Afdlin to win against Gurmit.

I give this movie a 6.
Gurmit's snob-ness a 7.
Fake Japanese Accents a... Nvm.

My Father(2007)

K-movie Genre stereotypes. It's either a humanitarian, romance, disease, comedy, teenage angst, mafia vs. police, horror or Joseon-period movies. Some one surely dies. One thing they all have in common is, they make you cry.

Fine. I won't spoil it. For the sypnosis, refer to google. It's everywhere coz this is a K-box office hit. DANIEL HENNEY IS SOOO HAWTT!

I give this movie an 8.5.
I give Kim Young Chul a 10.

KYC delivered his role awesomely!

Welcome to Dongmakgol (2005)

It's an epic!

Set during the Korean War in 1953, 3 Northeners meet 2 southerners in a village that is completely sealed out from the outside world come together to realize that they can learn to get along. There's a yankee too. It was funny at first, but towards the end...

Stock up tissues. That's all I'm saying.

Spin Kick (2004)

Kim Dong Wan is such a dork in this Movie. This movie revolves around teenage vices, street fighting, tobacco, alcohol and what not. The problem only starts when the principal, desperate after the 6 taekwondo members got hospitalized, agrees to bail 6 of the schools nightmare ghetto students from jail if they agree to get through the priliminnaries.

So you can see how bad turn good and Kim Dong Wan acting dorky :P the good always prevail that sort. The rivalry between him and Hyunbin i felt is too intensed. We never really got a clue if any of them got together with Su Bin.

There is a moral in every story and this is no exception. It's not the best korean film i've watched. But watch it anyway. Hyunbin in this is really different from his Kim Sam Soon days.

Shinhwa fans should watch this. lol.

She's on Duty (2004)

If you think Kim Sun-Ah was great in Kim Sam Soon think again. She was even better in this! She played her role really well.

A rookie cop forced to head back to school to befriend the daughter of their prime suspect. As soon as you see her step into school, prepare to laugh.

Gong Yoo!


If you like Action and Humour, you'll like this one.

Beowulf (2007)

The posters are everywhere.

Jolie doesn't want her kids to watch this.

I find it superficial.

To put it crudely, jolie toots an old bastard and get a monster, you do it with a young warrior you get a handsome strong golden dragon.

Does that equation work?

Good CGI nonetheless! Towards the end, the fight was awesome.

The Wedding Singer (1998)

Adam Sandler!!!! *gushes*

"Even let you hold the remote control..."


I knew the song. Never watched the movie. And I finally did. Deh.. what have i been doing for the past 9 years missing out on a show like that!!!

Thumbs up for the 80's setting!

Spoilers end here.

Ok. Damn it! I'm not warm anymore.


In fact, I'm freezing. I'm freezing, I'm cold, I'm icy, I'm iced-up, I'm chilly, I'm shivering. Yes. I'm shivering.

It really sucks you know. One minute you feel warm and fuzzy, the next you freeze even without your air-con on. You curl up in a duvet and just pull it closer to you and force yourself to sleep.

This is one of the other things that's even worse than having problems sleeping (which i forgot to mention).

You go close a book/cleo/8 Days and put it next to you. The last time you saw the clock it was midnight. You think. One thing leads to another. You toss and turn in your bed for a while. And when it seemed like an hour, you finally sleep.

Sleep sleep.


And then, suddenly you jolt up awake. You turn to yourside. You realize you're in your room. You realize the sun isn't shining on/roasting/toasting your butt. And then, you see the clock - 5am.

5 am.

Seriously! (too much GA)

What's worst than having problems sleeping is waking up in the middle of the night at the most absurd hours during the holidays.

The dreams aren't repetative (thankies buddha!), but waking up in the middle of the night is.

I miss McKay already. :(

Barely 1 month. BARELY.

It drizzled that night. But I was warm.

TV Addict

I'm messed up. My head is as messed up as the hair of 15-year-old angst and kimchi. Must be the strong scent from the preserved fruit thing Karina bought and polluted the air with.

Sharveen and Karina are mean. I was driving. They shoved it at my face on purpose. Haha! I was defenceless.

I am on my way to a McDreamy marathon. 12 discs. :P

LOL. I have to say, I have never really liked a show so much to actually bother to watch it in seasons. The one who recommended it didn't lie.

The last American show that I caught was Smallville. Hey, that's like how many years ago. Channel 5 showed it at 11 every week and i religiously caught it. And before that, I caught Martial Law (1998-2000). My brother and I both liked it. I don't think anyone is going to remember that show but search on IMDb. Clue: It stars Sammo Hung. Awesome LAPD drama. I didn't like Ally McBeal because I was kid when it came out. I didn't like X-files same reason as the previous.

*this is the time where I'm supposed to feel old.

So, I spent half my life consuming Asian television. Singaporean and Korean soaps and sitcoms. And something I'm not very proud of... Taiwanese! LOL! Those were some dark moments of my life. But so much for television, what pwned the most was the amount of kiddy TV i consumed.

Just to name a few, I watched Sesame Street, Ace Ventura, The Mask, Animaniacs, Pinky and The Brain, Disney Classics, Tom and Jerry, Looney Toons, Barney and dare i say it, Power Rangers! Apart from Teletubbies, I hated those animes with machines with alot of jagged edges and complicated lines. Classics were the best!

Teletubbies for once, is the crappiest rip-off text ever created because they have low production cost (15 minutes of the show will be taken by replaying and ads), rubbish (Red bag? Damn Gay sial), and it totally distorts the child's development in self-expression. (one, they don't speak right. two, they don't cry/frown/get pissed off. Wouldn't you be scared if your son didn't speak right, didn't cry/frown or get pissed off?)! I know I would.

Pokemon, on the other hand, was a phenomenon. Everyone was trading cards at school! In Com1020, 2 people in my group confessed to be a really big Pokemon fan. South Park by Trey Parker and Matt Stone makes kids more adult as ever. I used to like South Park but their later seasons go beyond stupid. In any case, toilet-humour, cheesy poofs, terrence and phillip kills time. How often do you get to see Saddam and Osama appear on TV together anyway?

I am born a TV addict. Nothing else is more vivid to me than that period of time where there was no need for me to attempt to laugh inconspicuously so that my mum won't think I'm loony. (ie. when I was a kid.)

But whenever I have my eyes glued on the TV and do that now, (besides watching PCK) my mum would ask. "What's so funny?"

My mum takes a while to understand the humour on 'Friends' (Ross daaawww) or The Simpsons. My dad is quicker but had no reaction. Even when we watch something together, it's always me who is laughing. Why am I always the only tard in the house? Easily-tickled? Yes. Critical? No.

I laugh at almost anything on the idiot box, and lately Youtube.

I watch E!, I watch DH&H, I watch GA, I still watch cartoons. You just can't kick it out of my system.

Which brings me to my first point. I am messed up.

This is one of the things I would say is worse than having trouble sleeping at night.

You see, today I met up with my usual bunch of buddies at City Square (it's like the 2nd time I've been there in 4 days) then there we were eating, walking, eating some more. We spoke about absolutely everything under the sun and I feasted my eyes on shoes. Lots of shoes. Apparently in this part of the world, it's impossible to find a pair of decent flats.

Everything that is nice has heels! HEELS DAMMIT! Thin pencil-like stilletos, or tall wooden chunkies in a variety of inches, 1's, 2's, 4's 5's! like Who in their right mind would wanna spend $$$ on stilts that is almost inhumane to wear?! How can you balance if your center of gravity is elavated THAT high?!

Heels are absolutely sexist!!!

They're nice though. Sexist nonetheless!

Trains are fun. Even though the journey is rather long but it's really pretty comfy over there. Beds! The upper deck gave me a reason to hunch. If i sit up, my head touches the ceiling. O.o Next time I'm getting the lower decks. XD

I have no idea what I said in the interview in KL but I just got myself a spot to join about 30 other people from all walks of life to the Korat Sea Games in Thailand!!! Kari and Alex will be there too. It's not hawaii and it could be like boot camp but still... it's getting somewhere! lol. WOOOT

One word to sum up this weekend.


p/s: I saw this really big squishy doodoll at Room in MV. *pulls out hair*

One of VFS Animation film.

I am really pigging out.

Sharveen invited us over to her house for a deepavali dinner with her family. So there we were finishing half her peanut cookies, downing muruku (all sorts) and having a bbq. They marinated the meat and seafood with masala spice from india and IT IS AWESOME! Don't get me started with the chicken and mutton stew. OMGG.

It was a fun get together since they even baked a cake for us to celebrate our belated birthdays! T.T SHARVEENN~! *tears up like a baby* LOL.

It was a pleasant surprise! It's a yummy cake. And we really appreciate everything you did. :) I HEARRT YOU! Have a great deepavali and may your family be blessed with only the best of health, wealth and everything else! I missed you so much I could squish you. Hang out with you soon yeah? XD

I danced! Not much. But at least I did! Wasn't sure if i did it right. Hahaha~

I had fun hanging out. Pictures should be up at Kari's blog so head there sometime later.

Life. As. It. Is.

The options have been laid out.

+Option 1: B. Communication - Single Major, Minor in INT, WRT as elective.
+Option 2: B. Arts - Double Major, INT minor.

I need to kacau kevin.

+Media, Culture and Power. Postcolonial Diasporic Literature?! CHIISIN!!!! >_<

+Alex: Can Double major la. It's written in the site. OMG.

+Dad: Start writing a CV. I called up the Event's Management company already.
Me: O.O!

4 Month Plan.

Marathon: I bought South Park 9th and 10th Season. I downloaded 3 movies yesterday and Greys Anatomy 1st season eps. I was planning to raid my auntie's drama collection this weekend.

Read: I have been raiding Pay-Less-Books last sem and I plan to kick my bad habit of stopping at page 77.

Starbucks: Ok. Yes. I know by doing this I'm supporting Cultural Imperialism. But I just like the uniform really.

KORAT: Okay. I dunno. I don't think I can make it for the interview anyway. (miserable)

Penang: Dad was talking about it. But he stopped. o.o

KL: Alvin, Karina and all were planning to go back there again. I WAN!!!


Ok. All in the name of Experience. Fine. I'll make coffee, do the filing, wash the toilet. All in the name of Experience. :P

torrents piss me off.

I have a question. If I do not know how to overcome the capped "local-seeders-only" rule Streamyx set up, does that mean old movies with very little seeders are impossible to download?

But by imposing what peer can contribute and all that is intervention in file sharing! (lol. too much INT.) Streamyx-ah! Cyberspace should be a free-market also leh! You even capped my speed at 50kb/s for Clubbox download. I need to exchange coupons to reach a measly 90kb/s! That sucks wey.

I found "The Wedding Singer (1998) on torrent. There are peers, but it still remains at 0 after an hour.

Itching to watch "하루 - A day" (2001) [Han Ji Seung, yes. It's a tearjerker]. But there is no living torrents. Clubbox doesn't have it. No direct links on Soompi.

It's one of the movies showing at GSC's Korean Film Festival. =_= Should've gone to watch it first before coming back.

I'm too free now. >_<

Awesomeness is so my word. XD

Feat: Jack Black, Jackie Chan, Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu, Dustin Hoffman. Ooh. I like the cast.
Scheduled Release: June 6th.

RAIN is going to tape Hollywood cartoon film theme song in the strict confidence in U.S.A. in the beginning of November. RAIN will get a chance showing off the ability of one's song to whole world cartoon film by the next project.

RAIN sings the theme song of the Hollywood animated cartoon "kung fu panda" (Kung Fu Panda) for LA on November 2. It was known that RAIN does commercial photography and album work in U.S.A. in these days, but digests a "kung fu panda" production schedule first of all.

[The translations are weird. LOL.]

Full House 2nd Season

Season 2 of popular KBS drama 'Full House' is in the process of full-scale production.

Park Chang Shik of Kim Jong Hak Production stated on the 30th, "To make season 2 of 'Full House', writer Jo Jong Hwa is already in a full year's work and at present has successfully completed the script until the 3rd episode. We are also considering oversea locations."

The script and the casting of the main characters will be approached at this latter half of the year and the shooting and broadcasting of the show will happen next year. The director is as yet undecided.

Mr. Park said "The 'Full House' drama in 2004 received great love from many viewers and it was so successful as to receive offers from Chinese and South-eastern Asian countries to broadcast it on their television networks." and "If 'Full House' season 2 is just produced well then there is a high possibility that there will be great success not only in Korea but in Asia." It is yet unknown whether Rain and Song Hae Kyo, the main characters in the first season of this drama will be cast.

The KBS drama 'Full House' that aired in 2004 in August was a modern love story based on a sweet comic story and acted out by Rain (Young Jae) with Song Hae Kyo (Ji Eun) who were received as an extremely beautiful couple.

Source: NATEnews. Taken from Soompi.

I personally won't want a second season coz the first season is draggy enough. Besides, there's no point if they are changing the cast. LOL. I don't mind seeing more of the rain-hyegyo pairing though.

I'm home.

I DROVE. 330 KM's. HOME. FIRST TIME. Reached home. In one piece. No speeding tickets. I even stopped by Melaka to visit my brother. Reached home at 7.45pm. Home-cooked food. No french beans though :/

Miraculously my dad allowed me to drive. Haha. After stuffing my stuff into the car, I was all rev-ed up.

But still, there's something about the PLUS highway that I can't stand.

Something I call "Rocketlaunchers". They itch to get a ticket. They love tailgating. They bully smaller cars. They think they own the road. HEY. Reality check. WE PAY ROAD TAX TOO.

The Melaka-KL stretch is 3-laned and it's awesome. You can stay at the center lane happily driving at a consistent pace. My dad at my side, then we just talk and catch up abit. Joke around. Missed him lameness. HAHA.

But then there'll always be this RX8 or some other flashy car will come really close to your back and then swerve and then overtake you from the left. This is when whatever swab of pride left in a Proton car driver disappears. I really don't fancy the idea of them smashing my baby (or me and my dad) like aluminium foil. ==|||


The whole Johor stretch is 2-laned with alot of upgrading works. Kancils/Lorrys/trailers on the left will travel at most 80km/h. So I have to cut out into the outer lane. There I was checking if if was clear. I move out, accelerate and move forward as fast as I can. Then comes this speeding Audi/Mercedes/BMW/wtheckcrazyexpressbus I saw earlier in my lane from the rear mirror darting from my back tail-gating a good few meters before I can move back in. EWRRGHUGHUHGGHHH!!!!


I'm going to go on a full-on tail-gate cussing campaign. >_<


Mum wasn't supposed to know I went against her no-revving-above-3000rpm rule. LOL.

She found out anyway.

First time. 330km's. I feel glorious. :)

Bukit Tinggi. >__<

Came back from dinner~ And I have a sudden craving for the roti goreng at Sunway College.

Bukit tinggi was supposed to end the semester. Getting sick wasn't. Haha.

Watching Jackass in the car was a bad idea. There was about 4 of us huddled at the back of a Naza Ria watching a mini (prolly 9 inch?) monitor. The things they do on Jackass is REALLY retarded.

I got sick-ish.

Stopped a Petrol station and purged my lunch.

I took a cab home while they went on with their roadtrip. Waa....

I got Feverish. T.T

Slept the rest of the evening.


The stupid headache didn't go away though. ==|||

I should start packing.

Byebye KL. :(

Hellow Johor :)


They're back! And they made me a souvinir. DAAAWW... *huggles homies* =D I saw the pictures Karina took.

BUKIT TINGGI IS SO NICE. LOL. Go to her blog and see the pics. Shouuld be up soon. :P

Friday, November 02, 2007


Whoa. First Year is over.



The sem always ends with sleep deprivation. Hahah. My COM and INT paper nearly killed me. I was supposed to wake up at 7 today to work on INT but I overslept. Then the night before Com, I kinda realized how much I've neglected MUSO. When I wanted to save the notes (the best for last minute study), MUSO UNDER MAINTANENCE. !@#$$@$%!

I hope for the best. *crosses fingers*

Time pass really fast. I still remember how I struggled for FTV last sem. Totally "awestruck" by the amount of words we need to write for the assignments. And all those last minute assignment sleepless nights. When the exam was over, it still didn't hit me first year is over.

Dunno. Sometimes i wished time could slow down a little bit. Things happen too fast sometimes.

I don't know what am i going to do for 4 months. So much time but no plans!

This sem taught me many things I guess. A couple of kids won't be around anymore here next year. Like i remember how it was like the first time I came here. And I can't believe it's gone so fast. Haha.

I still feel there's something left undone though. :/

I still can't decide whether I should Write. Too fickle for my own good.
