Something Good Today

Good things come to those who have the courage to speak up for it.

Had a bout of good news today. Can't really go into it as it is not very official yet. I always have this worry that things will be taken away from me so I have to get two of everything.

But I am really happy for myself. This can make a lot of things more comfortable not only for myself and also my family. =D

For me to put my Korean craze on hold for a while and concentrate on finalising my plans and itinerary for my Japan trip.

So excited!

So many places to go, so little time! <3 Japan!


Feeling moody again!

Bought a lontong and McWings meal for lunch. That's a $9 lunch, which can be eaten by two person. I not only overspent, and will also overeat, for lunch, I also spent my gym money for tonight. Not to mention the carbs I will be inhaling in a short while. What a sensible person I am!

Sigh. Wish April will be here NOW. I need a proper holiday.

Am I the only one who finds CL the only tolerable member of 2NE1? She seems to be getting a lot of focus lately and may just be the most popular member of the group. I know leaders generally get a lot of attention, but I used to prefer Sandara Park because I find her really pretty.

I don't know man. I generally find 2NE1 a very entertaining girl group. Their songs are catchy, their dressing is experimental in a good way, and they dance well. Pretty much all one can ask for in a girl group. But somehow only CL seems to be the only one in their current album to really shine. The rest just seem mildly annoying. Everything about CL feels right, from her clothes to her make up and hairstyle. I even like her hair colour. I normally do not like blond colours on Asians, but she worked it.

Maybe it's because it doesn't feel like CL is trying hard at all. She seems to have this crazy-tough-bad girl kind of persona, and she has the charisma to pull it off. She may really be the crazy-tough-bad sort or just damn good at pretending to be. Either way, it is fine by me, I am still wholly entertained.

Not so say the other girls are not entertaining, but there is just something, something, like I said before, mildly annoying.

Like Sandara Park, it kinda feels like she is trying too hard to be crazy-tough-bad girl too, but her face is too pretty. She should just go for a sufficient amount cool girl or even the cold, quiet type. I think she can pull that off. But no, she had to go play crazy-tough-bad girl too. IMO, one crazy-tough-bad girl is enough, especially when there is such a huge disparity in their personality and image.

How about Minzy? Hmmm, I am on the fence with that one. Although not exactly crazy-tough-bad girl, she has this mischievous minx thing going on for her, making her more crazy-fun girl. I guess I do like her funkiness and cuteness, but find her too cute in a lot of ways too. Her short black hair makes her look like some youngest sister tagging along to do naughty stuffs with her older sisters.

As for Park Bom, can't say I really like her. Among the girls, I find her the least likable. I always associate her name with "bimbo" and she really gives off that kind of aura. Her red hair is horrible. Good singing voice though.

Okay, I am done. How about a picture?

High Kick Rant

Nooo! I DO NOT want Kim Bum to fall for Kang Yumi, who I think is a class A bitch!

Hate such developments of stories. It's almost as disturbing as when Rachel fell for Joey in Friends. I kinda liked the whole Joey falling for Rachel angle, I thought it was kinda sweet and real. But Rachel's crush on Joey just felt shallow.

I don't want High Kick to turn into an anger fest! Noooooooooooooooooo!

PS: I reckon I am gonna start rambling and ranting about High Kick a lot in the coming days, until I finish the entire series. I am only up to episode 65, so good luck! But it's not as bad as Queen Seon Deok, I think. I can watch more episodes of High Kick because it's more relaxing than Queen Seon Deok. Haha!

Currently watching this 2006 Korean sitcom, Unstoppable High Kick, which is about the daily happenings of a typical upper middle class Korean family and the funny situations that happens to them and their friends.

It is 167 episodes long and each episode is only about half an hour, like a lot of American sitcoms complete with its own laugh track, which makes it very easy watching for me. And it has fast attained a position in my heart akin to my favourite sitcoms like Friends and How I Met Your Mother. After 50-over episodes, you really feel like you know these people personally, and watching each episode is like catching up with the comings and goings of your friends.

There are plenty of genuinely hilarious scenes that had me laughing hysterically. On top of that, the show also dealt with some social and personal issues, which I find well-handled. Just enough to keep the show realistic, but without overpowering the entire sitcom's top priority, which is the comedic value. The only grip I have is that sometimes during a moving moment, they would make a crying woman trip and fall and the laugh track comes on, spoiler.

Really feel connected to the characters in certain ways. Like when two of the single ladies living together started crying together because of work problems, I really felt like bursting into tears with them. But then, the student of one of the ladies, who happens to be the other lady's ex-husband's nephew (confused yet?) came to drop off some stuffs for his ex-aunt, and saw the two women rolling in tears on the sofa and floor (???) respectively, his expression was just classic.

Haha! Gonna watch some more High Kick.

See You Tomorrow's Tomorrow

I've got grand plans for the weekend.

To do some major slacking at home.

It will be 48 hours of hibernation mode starting right now, all the way till Sunday. I am just gonna laze around on my bed, watch my dramas, surf net, play Facebook games, take naps, and above all, do nothing at all. NOTHING. Maybe just stare at the walls and ceiling. It's been a long while since I stared at my walls and ceiling. If I have time, I will throw in some staring with my door and windows as well. Yes, there will be plenty of staring.

I will not go out, not stress myself over what shows I have to finish watching, trouble about what to eat and drink (already stocked up on plenty of instant noodles and packet green tea), or even do anything that I usually dread doing (laundry). If I really feel like it, I may not even shower at all in the next 48 hours.

Hopefully this will take the edge off this entire week and prep me for the next. Felt so tired and tense. Lousy week.

Annoyed And Frustration Just Don't Cut It Anymore

Can't help but feel that if I am truly happy with my job, I won't be so angry all the time. Even outside of work.

Gotta seriously consider this whole shebang.

Life Just Has To Carry On

"I once loved you so much that I thought it was impossible to love anything else. Now it's constantly reminding myself that it's one step at a time. Can't rush anything. It's impossible to jump ahead and skip any part of it. Even if it may be painful.

Life just has to carry on."

Hoho! I Hope No Crazy Fan Reads This!

So I am finally caught up with the whole TVXQ or JYJ or DBSK, or whatever it is they call themselves, dispute. Although I am not exactly a fan. I kinda like a few of their songs, but was never really into them. But oh! Such drama! Involve the law even! Waaoow!

Haha! I don't know what so many people are getting their panties into a bunch for. It's just the entertainment business. You so angry, so indignant, they will give you a cut of their earnings meh? Just sit back and enjoy the show. Odds are with all this drama, their saleability will increase making all of them even more popular. Then people will get to see their idol/s more often. How nice, right?

But I do have one thought about all of it. I kinda observed that a lot of fans seemed to be on JYJ's side. Why is it not a surprise? Well, because all the really cute ones from the group are on that side. So the other two left are, and will probably continue to be, fighting a losing battle. What a "suck it bitch!" thing it all is.



I am really having trouble keeping my eyes open man. This tiredness is making my brain turn to farts.

Don't really think I am having insomnia though. Probably just that my brain lacks proper stimulation and is not tired enough to fall asleep at night. But the rest it gets from whatever sleep I had is not enough to support my gorilla of a body, and hence I feel soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sluggish.

Okay, don't know what the hell I am saying. How about a music video?

Se7en is a baaaaaad boy in this video. But he's really looking better to me now. Not sure if it's the hair or what, but I never really used to find him cute. I'm sure it's the hair. The side slant is just irresistibly cool.

She who gave me life. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUNTIE!

She is going to box me for posting this photo of her. Mumsies is notoriously reluctant to take photos. I took this when she was most unaware.

But my 엄마 cute hor! So nua and relaxed. Like laobu, like 茶母 kia! Hahah!

妈咪!祝生日快乐, 年年添寿!

Turn It Up LOUD!

Damn this guy has no right to be so cool! Feel like slapping him. Too much fineness going on!

눈 뜨고는 볼 수 없는 몽키매직!

Why do married people always seem so grown up even though they are the same age or even younger than you? And it gets even worst after they have kids. The singletons just seem to get reduced to immature un-grown-ups,  with no real purpose in life.


Oh well. That's not the only thing that made me feel lesser-than-ok this weekend.

I was at the gym yesterday when this guy came in and started using the stair master beside the swingy-thing-with-the-two-sticks-for-you-to-sway-with-your-arms, which I have found out is called the elliptical trainer or also the cross-trainer, that I like to use.

He then proceeded to do this really intense workout with the stair master that was simply just not cool. I don't even know how to dsecribe it. There was a lot twisting of his butt and his hands were all over the place and the stair master in all the funny, funny spots. Seriously, he looked like he was dirty-dancing with the stair master. NOT PLEASANT DUDE!

It was really awkward to be next to. I wonder what was going through his mind. I am 89.9% positive that he is gay or at the very least bi. Nothing against homosexuals or bisexuals, but some of them really have weird habits that only they seem to understand.

And not to mention, next to his "sexy", I use the word loosely, "dancing", again using the word very, very loosely, firm ass and shapely thighs, I felt like a misshapen, sully, grunting old bear. Red-faced, perspiring profusely and trying hard to catch my breath from the workout.

Such low moments need to be executed. Bleh.

Fearless - Colbie Caillat

If that's the way you love
You've got to learn so much
If that's the way you say goodbye

And this is how it ends
And I'm alright within
Never going to see me cry
Cause I've cried

So go on, go on and break my heart
I'll be okay
There's nothing you can do to me
That's ever going to burn me

So go on, go on and leave my love
Out on the street
I'm fearless
Better believe I'm fearless, fearless

If this is how it hurts
It couldn't get much worse
If this is how it feels to fall

Then that's the way it is
We live with what we miss
We learn to build another wall
Till it falls

So go on go on and break my heart
I'll be okay
There's nothing you can do to me
That's ever going to burn me

So go on, go on and leave my love
Out on the street
I'm fearless
Better believe I'm fearless, fearless

If it's between love and losing
To never have known the feeling
And I'm still sad we've loved

And if I end up lonely
At least I will be there knowing
I believe in love

Go on, go on break my heart
I'll be okay
I'm fearless
Better believe I'm fearless, fearless

Go on, go on and break my heart
I'll be okay
There's nothing you can do to me
That's ever going to burn me

So go on, go on and leave my love
Out on the street
I'm fearless
Better believe I'm fearless

So go on and leave my love
Go on and leave my love
Go on and leave my love
Better believe I'm fearless, fearless

I Enjoyed Myself Way Too Much While Writing This Entry

Seriously, I don't know what is wrong with young celebrities nowadays. I sure as hell do not get in what way this look is cool and/or pretty!

Even Addams Family won't get with this mess.

What's wrong huh? It's really a pity because I used to find her really up and coming after watching her on Gossip Girl. She has a really sweet face and her makeover to an edgier look was really refreshing, i.e.

Never easy to rock a pony tail, but I like it.

But now... now she doesn't even look gothic. She looks unwell. Let's revisit

Simi daiji ji kor siao eh? Found your long-lost panda family yet?

So sad. The good ones seldom last.

Hello! Are you still in there somewhere in the inexplicable mess of mica and titanium dioxide?

Really. I know it's not easy to do a good smokey eyes job. I am constantly struggling with shaky hands, smudgy eyeliners and looking like I eat babies for sport, but basically crayoning your entire eye like that is never a good solution.

Crazy panda girl needs to take some tips from Park Jung Min. If anyone can pull off the smokey eyes look, it's him.

Sexy charisma, ok!

But then I realise something. This guy wears eyeliners. A LOT.

"Annyeong! This is how you rock a proper, sufficient smokey eyes look, sexy charisma style. Take that, crazy panda girl!"

Haha! Dude needs to lighten up on the eyeliner usage. But key point, he does it and he does it good. I cannot resist posting another picture. A favourite I spent hours scouring the internet for because I stupidly overwritten the file.

"I am allowed to smile in such vaguely haolian manner because I look this good!"

On this note:

HJL: "I am allowed to air my armpits in such luxuriously haolian manner because I also look this good!"
KKJ: "Can they see me too?" *inclination for disassociation vs. need to put himself out there more*

Strong urge to listen to "Love Like This" now. Wonder why is that.

Confessions Of An Angry Woman

Some friends commented a while ago that they think my blog is not insightful enough and also usually just contains all these comments that are sometimes not very nice and extremely critical. Sometimes even very angry and very bitchy. In short, it's not something that will appeal to the masses.

Now, do I really give off the aura of someone who wants the masses coming in here and poking about my business?

If all you really want are insights, then come talk to me personally. I can give you plenty. In fact, I can give you so much insight that you will rue the day you ever asked me for an insight. Because I will probably never stop giving you an insight. And I will also probably never stop talking.

Just don't expect my blog to be full of deep thoughts and meaningful feelings. Because my blog is pretty much the only place I can write a lot of the things that I am not at liberty to say in real life. Those sarcastic, snide thoughts that pop into my head all the time, which I have to hold back even though I find them extremely hilarious.

That's who I am. Or at least a large part of my brain is. A sarcastic, snide woman who likes to make harsh remarks and mean criticisms simply because I find it amusing to do so.

If I really say every single thing that comes to my mind in real life, I would probably have no friends. Not to say I am trying to be someone I am not. In fact I think my friends will probably tell you that I am too much into the being of who I am. So much so that they don't know what to make of me sometimes due to my brutally honest nature and my inability to mask my true thoughts and feelings. But that is also after I've learnt to tone it down a tad after years of being around people.

Honestly, I don't think I am a very nice person. I can be really mean and petty if someone or something really annoys me. Especially people who treats me like an idiot. Or people who tries to take advantage of other people. Or people who are stuck up. Or people who tortures little animals. Or people with no personal hygiene and no sense of personal space. Or stupid people who are lazy. Or lazy people who are stupid. Whichever way you fancy. And so many other things. Oh so many, many other things.

So it won't come as a surprise that I get angry very easily. Being angry is my thing. I have a mad bitchy attitude and would lose my temper over things that would not bother anyone else. If I am not angry, I am usually irritated and/or frustrated.

But then again, I am also easily distracted from my anger and usually never last more than a few hours before I am happily distracted by some frivolous and/or silly thing. Sometimes I even forget what I was so pissed off about in the first place.

Tsk, tsk, tsk. I am such a lovely bed of sunflowers, aren't I? All sunshine and joyful cheer.

When all is said and done, the thing that is really, truly surprising is that I still have friends. A bunch of solid, good people who also call me friend. Who rallies around me in times of need, accepts me for who I am, listen to all my rants, not take any of my shit, and always steer me in the right direction. Usually with a funny comment or joke. Exactly what I need to distract me.

And for these people, it's not difficult to be less angry, less bitchy, to be nice, to be more considerate, to be a better person. It just comes naturally and it's effortless.

I said this once today and I am going to say it again, on the record. I really don't know what I will do without my friends. Each and everyone of them is a blessing. And each and everyone of them are great people.

Because they are willing to be friends with this woman:

화난 여자! Sho scarieeeeee!

The Treadmill... me, is like a complicated relationship with a boy that I know is good for me, but I am just not that into him.

I dread using the treadmill and usually have to blank out the thoughts in my mind so that I will auto-pilot myself onto it. I especially hate it when I am running on it, because I always feel like I am going to die from the sheer physical exertions of trying to breath while my lungs feel like they are exploding, and my calf muscles overworking themselves to an almost stage of self-destruction.

But when I am away from it, I think about it, about when I should go back to use it, because it's really good for me.

And it's definitely a relationship I have started and given up on time and time again in the past few years.

Arrgh, see? I am thinking about it right now. At 1.40 am in the morning. I wonder if it's thinking about me too...

Hello In 2011!

Hey eee-vaaa-reee-baaar-deee!

Did my picture scare you? Haha! No intention to scare anyone, I just really like the eyeliner I used. This was taken after I got home from New Year's Eve celebrations. Still going strong despite no re-applying after seven hours! And minimal smudging! I finally found THE ONE (eyeliner)!

How was your first day of 2011? Was it everything you expected and more? Or otherwise? Hahah! Of course it's impossible to tell how the year will go based on just one day. To me, it felt just like any other day in 2010, 2009, 2008, etc, etc.

But I do think that 2011 has gone off to a pretty good start for me. I woke up early, went to the gym, came home to do my laundry and pay my bills. After a quick shower, I went out to the neighbourland in search of the elusive Etude House sunscreen, which I finally managed to purchase at half the price that Singapore is selling, and ON TOP of that, they are offering a good 30% discount. Meaning I got a sunscreen selling in Singapore for $24.90 at only $9.00. Really, don't blame the locals for boosting our neighbourland's economy, blame it on the high prices here.

Anyway, I came back to SIN after getting my sunscreen because I didn't feel like shopping. So I went to visit Mumsies who is helping out at the shop for the CNY season. It's been a while since I've gone to the place where I spent a large portion of my childhood and teenage years, playing then working during weekends and holidays. It's nice to revisit the place in the new year, and say hello to some of the uncles and aunties there.

After that it was home for a quick nap, then off to Beerhouse with the Pinkies. Beerhouse is a drinking hole that we go from time to time. It's not too rowdy, have KTV facilities and it's frequented by our seniors from secondary school, who knows almost everyone there. So it's a familiar and friendly atmosphere all around. And best thing is, it's in the neighbourhood area, and I can go there in shorts and slippers. Ultra-comfy! It was a wonderful night of funning around, drinking games and singing! I even drank a little, little bit because the mood was so good!

Nothing spectacular or out of the ordinary, but I think I managed to start the new year by doing a combination of healthy activities to spending time with loved ones and having fun. Seems like a good way to kick-start the year.

Shall lazy my Sunday away in preparation for the first work day of 2011!
