Baby & Me

Han Joon Soo (Jang Geun Suk) is an 18 year old rebellious high school student who couldn't seem to stay out of trouble. Fed up of him, his parents decided to run away from home and leave him to fend for himself. They recorded a video with the messages written on placards informing him that his credit card has been terminated and that they will only return when he has reformed. After watching the video that his parents have recorded on their reason for leaving, Joon Soo decides to throw a party. He headed to the supermarket to do some shopping for the party. While choosing booze for the upcoming party, a baby was left in his shopping cart without him noticing. He was shocked to see the baby in his shopping cart when he turned around to place the booze in the cart. Joon Soo then brought the baby to the information counter to be reunited with his parents. At the information counter, the personnel looked through the baby's possessions and found a note stating that it would be best if the baby is taken care of by his father Han Joon Soo.

Left with no choice, he then takes the baby home. Woo Ram, the baby was giving Joon Soo a hard time and so he decided to abandon the baby at a dumpster, but failed. With no one to care for the baby, Joon Soo brings the baby to school. That subsequently landed Joon Soo suspended from school. Albeit unhappy being stuck with a baby whom he hasn't a clue who the mother is, Joon Soo soon became attached to Woo Ram (the baby).

Jang Geun Suk does bear some resemblance to Lee Min Ho in this movie. It was kinda cute seeing him carrying the baby around in the carrier.

It was also really funny seeing him running around asking people for breast milk. From this movie you can see that Jang Geun Suk seems to be quite good at handling babies. In this case it should be baby as there is only one. Besides that, the baby in this movie kind of resembles the baby that acted with Jackie Chan in Rob-b-hood.

I have to add that, Jang Geun Suk doesn't seem as short as he does in He's Beautiful. Wonder what went wrong. He looks much better without eyeliner that's for sure.

He's Beautiful

Left to right : Jung Yong Hwa, Park Shin Hye, Jang Geun Suk, Lee Hong Ki

He's Beautiful also known as 미남이시네요 / Minami Shineyo / You're Beautiful / You're Handsome / 原来是美男


Gemma /Go Min Nyu grew up in the orphanage with her twin brother Go Min Nam. She was a nun to be living in a monastery. One day she was approached by the manager of the famous Korean band A.N Jell, Manager Ma, to pose as her twin brother while he recuperates from a botched cosmetic surgery. Reluctant to do so, Gemma turned Manager Ma down as she was on her way to Rome to become an actual nun. However after being told of her brother’s intention in becoming popular was to locate their mother whom they have never met, she was pensive, but turned him down anyway.

While at the airport waiting to board her flight, Gemma accidentally knocked into Hwang Tae Kyung, the leader of A.N Jell and had their possessions mixed up. She quickly grabbed her things and ran towards the terminal without realizing that she has dropped her air ticket. Hwang Tae Kyung then picks up the ticket and tries to return it to her but she was nowhere to be found. Gemma on the other hand unintentionally picked up Hwang Tae Kyung’s MP3 player. After realizing that she has lost her air ticket and was unable to go to Rome as planned, Gemma was devastated. She then realized that she had a foreign object in her possession. Out of curiosity, she listened to the song in the MP3 player. The song touched her and she then changed her mind to join A.N Jell to fulfill her brother’s dream.

She then posed as Go Min Nam and joined A. N Jell. Initially she was resented by the group members. Trying her best not to be detected, Go Min Nam went on posing as a guy. Hwang Tae Kyung who was trying to kick her out of the band tried making things difficult for Go Min Nam. One day, Tae Kyung discovers that Min Nam is a girl and wanted to expose her. She begged him not to reveal her identity and agreed to the terms that he came up with. Not long after that, another band member, Kang Shin Woo discovered her identity but remained silent and helped her without her noticing.

All was going well until one day A. N Jell’s coordinator unintentionally reveals Min Nam’s secret to pretentious singer/actress Yoon He Yi. As there was a rumour that He Yi was dating Tae Kyung, she ceased this opportunity and blackmailed Tae Kyung to continue posing as her boyfriend or she will reveal Min Nam’s secret. Tae Kyung who was trying to protect Min Nam’s secret then reluctantly consents.

Soon, one by one, the members of A. N Jell starts to fall for Min Nam.

Having Boys Over Flowers cast as comparison, the cast of this show looks like pre pubescent teenagers and appears to be kind of stunted. I'm not too sure whether they (He's Beautiful cast)are tall in real life.

When I first saw the show, the first thing that came to mind was the lead actor bears striking resemblance to a Hong Kong actor called Wong Cho Lam. Apart from that, I think that the lead actor wears too much eye liner and it makes him look rather weird. Seeing other photos of him without eye liner, he looks better that way. Seriously, guys should not wear makeup.

Sometimes his hairstyle makes him resemble the lion in Madagascar. What were the stylists thinking anyway? Tying the guys' hair in multiple pony tails? Just watch the show and you will get what I mean.

Don't you think he resembles the Grinch smiling in this photo?

The lead actress of the show. Go Min Nam. Somehow she looks like a teenager in this show. Probably that's due to her chubby cheeks. I saw a commercial starring her and Kim Hyun Joong and she didn't look that short. They just look stumpy in this show. Anyway, I was wondering whether people in this era are that dense that they can't tell the difference between a boy and a girl. Is it still possible to pull a Mulan trick and get away with it? Seriously?

Kang Shin Woo the gentleman in the show. This was the scene where he secretly followed Min Nam around when she went out dressed as a girl. I sympathize with his character in the show. He secretly loved Min Nam and when he finally had the courage to tell her, he was rejected. Yet he stills stand by her, helping to protect her. I will be really touched if someone does that to me. Why aren't there any Kang Shin Woos in real life?

Of the 3 male characters in the show, I think he looks best. Tae Kyung's makeup really makes him weird. He looks much better without the eyeliner and weird hairstyles. The stylists idea of making Jeremy look cute ends up making him look idiotic.

Jeremy is the childish fun loving character in the show. He was initially against Min Nam but soon became nice to her when he come to know that Min Nam is an orphan. When he started developing feelings for Min Nam after learning about his past, he thought that he was turning gay and tried to keep a distance from her. Upon finding out that he is actually a she, Jeremy began to show his feelings to her.

Piggy rabbit, the doll that Tae Kyung made to represent Min Nam. Tae Kyung nicknamed Min Nam piggy rabbit because he claims that she is a rabbit pretending to be a pig. How all this came about was when they were lost in the woods and he told Min Nam about being bitten by a rabbit. He added that she is like a rabbit that looks docile but is actually dangerous, and piggy because she keeps making the pig snout whenever she's with him. Tae Kyung thought that Min Nam kept making that pig snout because she is teasing him for being chased by a pig that left him lost in the woods. Unbeknown to him, Min Nam actually makes that nose whenever she's trying to control and conceal her feelings towards him, a trick that Manager Ma taught her.

Shots of Min Nam and Tae Kyung. They also show the difference between Tae Kyung wearing eyeliner and without.

Can't recognise that it's Jang Geun Suk right?

The ending of the show was rather a disappointment though. I was expecting a lot more drama but it just ended abruptly. Anyway, the show is worth watching. There are several funny scenes and a whole lot of crying scenes. Only in Korean dramas do you get to see men cry. All the male leads in this drama shed tears. Besides that,the music in this show is actually rather catchy and is part of the reason that makes the show worth watching. It is after all a drama on a pop band A.N Jell. Apart from that, I certainly don't see the point of local television channel (8tv) censoring parts of the drama when the show is actually catered to tweens and teens, which means no erotic scenes. A better option would be to watch it online (whispers). Shhhh.

What Christmas Means To Me

My favorite season of all time is here. I have always been fond of Christmas because malls and hotels would be beautifully decorated with Christmas motifs. Not to mention, everything seems to look better when its colorful and the jingling sound makes the ambiance really merry. Since small, Christmas to me should be covered in snow. Buildings decked with colorful lights, beautifully decorated trees everywhere, lots of presents and Christmas carols filling the air. Unfortunately, I have yet to have my white Christmas. Hopefully very soon I will be able to celebrate a truly white Christmas.

The lion in Trafalga Square covered in snow. How beautiful.

"What Christmas Means To Me" -Hanson

Candles burning
Lots of mistletoe
Lots of snow and ice
Everywhere we go
Choir singing carols
Right outside my door


All these things and more
That's what Christmas means to me my love
Christmas means to me my love
Christmas means to me my love
Christmas means to me my love
Christmas means to me my love

I see your smiling face
Like I've never seen before
Though I love you madly
It seems I love you more
The little though you give me
Will touch my heart for sure


I feel like running wild
Those angels a little shy
I caught you underneath the mistletoe
I kiss you twice and then some more
I wish you merry Christmas baby
And a happy new year

Let's deck the halls with holly
Singing Silent Night
Fill the dreams with angels' hair
Pretty, pretty lights
Go to sleep and wake up
Just before daylight


Christmas means to me my love
Christmas means to me my love
Christmas means to me my love
Christmas means to me my love
Christmas means to me my love
Christmas means to me my love
Christmas means to me my love...

Merry Christmas!

Tampered Mail

We received a greeting card from overseas a few days ago. We were rather bewildered by the condition of the mail though. On the front, there appears to be nothing wrong with the mail.

However when the envelope is turned, the flap is tightly sealed with tape. We were clueless as to why the envelope is sealed with cellophane tape. We didn't give much thought to it initially. In the envelope was a greeting card with a separate sheet of paper that neither belongs to the greeting card nor a letter that bears any message. Could it be that this friend of ours enclosed something with the greeting card? Photos, cash, etc. It then dawn upon us that there might be a possibility that the envelope was opened by the employees of the post system. How did we come up with such a conclusion? Well, Japanese place great importance on the packaging of their things. It is rather impossible for a Japanese to send out something in a torn envelope.

As you can see there is a big tear at the side of the flap to the right. Just because the envelope is taped with cellophane tape, it doesn't revert the torn state back to its original form. How stupid can these people possibly be?

This is not the first time our mail has been tampered with. During Chinese New Year we received greeting cards from Hong Kong without the postage stamp on the envelope. If the sender has forgotten to attach the stamp, the mail would most likely have not reach us and would be returned to the sender.

People these days simply have no integrity. Taking things from people without their consent constitutes stealing regardless whether the item is a piece of paper,or valuable items like money. Stealing in any form is a crime be it stealing a physical object or an idea. There is no such thing as taking something that is insignificant in monetary value does not constitute stealing. Stealing is stealing. Shame on these people.

Playful Kiss

Can't seem to get this song out of my head. It is quite catchy. This is one of the songs in the Korean series Playful Kiss (also known as Mischievous Kiss/Naughty Kiss/장난스런 키스 / Jangnanseureon Kiss).

Don't know why this script is broken towards the end. Anyway, below is the lyrics for this song. The writer didn't write the lyrics. They were Googled. Just to share a catchy song that is dominating my mind. Enjoy.

When did this begin, I guess the moment I first saw you
Every 1 minute 1 second, you keep coming onto mind
What are you doing.. Where are you now

Ooh baby

I see this I see that
I do this I do that
You keep coming into my heart, I seemed to have gone crazy..
You do know why my heart is like this.. You do know why I’m feeling like this

Day by day I look at you only and waits for you always
Until now you’re the only one I know and I will love only you
It’s a valuable moment even when I’m loving you
If there is no you, I do not want to do anything at all

Every single day when I open my eyes in the morning, I want to see you
In my present days now, I cannot live if there is no you
I want to hear that one sentence “I love you” though
Every day, I love you..Only you, I love only you, Just the two of us

Ooh baby..

Probably just by imagination, thoughts like ‘You are mine’
Can make my heart pound whole day long
I seemed to have gone crazy
I will run towards you..and confess honestly

Day by day I look at you only and waits for you always
Until now you’re the only one I know and I will love only you
It’s a valuable moment even when I’m loving you
If there is no you, I do not want to do anything at all

Every single day when I open my eyes in the morning, I want to see you
In my present days now, I cannot live if there is no you
I want to hear that one sentence “I love you” though
Every day, I love you..Only you, I love only you, Just the two of us

Struck for words.. Out of breath (out of breath)
Your two hands that is grabbing tightly of my shaking hand
I’m crying already.. Are you gonna confess to me now

Keep watching and guarding me always
If I cry because of you, you must hug me in you tightly
That’s the moment I sincerely wish for
No matter how I think, I won’t be able to believe

Every single day, guard by my side and look upon me only
Because I love you too much, you who treats me as a friend only
Will you say that one sentence that you love me now
Every day, I love you.. You love me only..
Shall we kiss?

언제부터 였는지 너를 본 순간부터
1분1초마다 니가 자꾸 생각나
너는 무얼하는지.. 지금 어디있는지 Ooh baby

이리저리 보아도 이것저것 다져도
니가 자꾸 맘에 들어 미칠거 같애..
이런 내맘을 아는지.. 이런 내 감정은 아는지

하루하루 너만 바라보며 항상 기다려 볼래
오직 너 하나만 알고 사랑해 줄게
사랑하기에도 아까운 시간인데
너 없인 아무것도 하기 싫은데

매일매일 아침마다 눈만 뜨면 보고 싶은데
이제 너 없이는 하루라도 살수 없는데
사랑한다 그 한마디 듣고 싶은데
매일 사랑해.. 너만 사랑해 우리둘이

Ooh baby..
혹시 니가 내꺼란 그런 상상만으로
하루종일 두근거려 미칠거 같애
너에게로 달려가.. 솔직하게 고백할거야

하루하루 너만 바라보며 항상 기다려 볼래
오직 너 하나만 알고 사랑해 줄게
사랑하기에도 아까운 시간인데
너 없인 아무것도 하기 싫은데

매일매일 아침마다 눈만 뜨면 보고 싶은데
이제 너 없이는 하루라도 살수 없는데
사랑한다 그 한마디 듣고 싶은데
매일 사랑해.. 너만 사랑해 우리둘이

말문이 막혀.. 숨이 차올라(차올라)
떨리는 내손 꼭 잡은 니 두손에
눈물이 날것 같아.. 지금 내게 고백한거니

나만 항상 지켜주고 바라봐 줄래
너 때문에 눈물나면 꼭 안아 줄래
그토록 간절히 원하던 순간이네
아무리 생각해도 믿기질 않아

매일매일 내 옆에서 나만 보며 지켜봐 줄래
친구로 지내긴 너를 너무 사랑하니까
사랑한 그 한마디 지금 해줄래
매일 사랑해.. 나만 사랑해.. 키스해 줄래..

What's New In Penang

Several new developments are sprouting in the island that once used to resemble a turtle from birds' eye view (but now looks more like a rectangle due to reclamation).

One of them is 1st avenue shopping mall that opened on the 25 November 2010. Located near Komtar and next to Traders Hotel and Prangin Mall. Nothing much to show as there aren't many shops opened apart from Parkson. Not wanting to appear like a clown snapping photos when there is nothing much to see. It is rather miniature compared to Pavillion.

The escalators upon entering from car park. Just to show that the escalators resembles slides in theme park. Whee. Not very clear due to camera resolution.

The view of Trader's Hotel Pool from 1st Avenue carpark.

The Times Square building taken from 1st Avunue.

Apart from that, Sungai Pinang has been transformed and is hardly recognisable. This is some high rise residential building in Sungai Pinang. The building is facing a promenade that overlooks the sea (on the right). From the promenade, Penang bridge is visible (from a distance).

The new shoplot next to the high rise.

Drum roll........................Behold the first Burger King in Penang. Located in Sungai Pinang. It is so out of place and practically hidden but should be visible if swimming to Penang from mainland.

Disruption in Water Supply

We don't know what we've got until we lose it. This saying is really true and it applies to almost everything in life. Last night, the water supply at my place was cut off because of the upgrading work somewhere. Although we did receive notice regarding the water supply disruption, we didn't really feel the pinch till the water supply was turned off entirely.

It is during times like this that we tend to use water more (refer to pie chart below for the break down). For instance, we tend to use the loo more when there's scarcity of water. Prior to the cut off time, we were getting ourselves prepared for it. We brushed our teeth right after dinner. However, not long after brushing my teeth, I had an urge to have a drink and had a cup of coffee with some biscuits. Then I immediately rushed to brush my teeth again before the water supply is cut off. Mum on the other hand, started purging after dinner. It was probably due to the mangoes she consumed. She was in and out of the toilet several times before the water supply was cut and continued visiting the loo a few more times after the cut.

After all the purging, she was hungry and started eating again. She invited me to join her and so I did and ate too. Then dad jumped on the bandwagon and had instant noodles with additional ingredients. Well, there's a price to pay for eating during a water supply disruption. I had to brush my teeth for the third time within 2 to 3 hours using as little water as possible from a bottle that was meant for all of us. I also had to control my water consumption so that I don't have to frequent the toilet during the disruption.

After going through this ordeal, I can say that I truly feel for those having to live with no water supply to their homes. For us having to live a day without water supply is unbearable. Imagine those who don't have water supply in their homes. To them it's a daily ordeal. This episode has really jolted me out of my comfort zone and has ingrained in me the importance of water conservation. We should never take simple things like water for granted.

Found a chart on Google that breaks down water consumption.

See the toilet image? The activity that garners most water consumption with 26.8%.

Near Heart Attack

The internet has been a real important part of my life. I have become so dependent towards it that a moment without it makes me feel uneasy. I had a near heart attack yesterday. I was surfing the internet and all of a sudden I got cut off without prior notice. And attempts to reconnect was futile. I tried restarting my computer...-negative, turning it off and on again...-negative. The wireless function went dead and there was simply no connection. It kept appearing that there is no connection and the cable was required for a connection. Regardless of what I did there was no connection. Then I tried plugging in the cable to make a connection. Nothing happened. No connection could be made. And the worse part was the other computer too lost connection to the internet as the result of my plugging in the cable to lappie. That got me really worried as I have caused a catastrophe. No computer technician is available over the weekend. Which means no internet over the weekend. T.T

I thought my lappie is "sick" because the wireless button is not lit. Pressing the wireless button does not make it light up either. This could not be happening. Lappie is hardly a year old. Only a few months old. It is not possible that it is dying. So for the whole of today, I was deprived of the internet because I thought I have screwed up the internet connection. Then a while ago I turned on my computer to transfer some files. To my surprise, there is internet connection. How did that happened? Does this mean that the problem does not lie with my computer but the ISP itself? Screw the ISP.

Can't Breathe

I have been sneezing and blowing my nose non stop from the moment I got up today.
I tried to refrain from taking medication for the first few hours with hopes that I was able to overcome it. But after 4 hours of continuous sneezing and blowing, I was left with no choice but to swallow the medicine because my nose hurts from all that blowing. It didn't work and I continued sneezing and blowing for another 4-5 hours. Then I took the panacea, the wonder pill (a.k.a Panadol). But that did not help either. Two hours later, I took another runny nose stopper. That did not stop the runny nose either. At present, I am unable to breathe as nose is blocked. I strongly feel that being breathless is the result of taking the running nose medicine as this is not the first time I experience this ( difficulty breathing after taking the medicine). The dustbins are filled with my used tissues. Currently my nose hurts so badly.

Who Do You Want To Dress Up As For Halloween?

It's time to play dress up again. Woots!!! For the pretty ones, it really doesn't matter what they intend to dress up as. At the end of the day, they are still pretty and beautiful to look at regardless of what they wear. The hideous ones on the other hand, well, basically they save up a lot on costumes. They don't have to spend a single cent on Halloween costumes. All they need to do is just be themselves for Halloween. Muahaha. Anyway, it's more like Halloween all year round for them.

Just the other day, I saw a photo of a kid. I felt so sorry for this kid. It is seriously not his fault that he resembles Frankenstein (blame it on his parents. To be exact the mother cause she resembles Frankenstein). I think many people feel the same way for him. Cause most of them have to tell little white lies by giving comments of praise on the photo his mother proudly posted. I'm not being mean or anything but that photo of him was seriously weird. His forehead was sky high and he had duck like lips. His hair was like a few pitiful strands sprouting from his scalp. Just visualise Frankenstein. It's karma that the kid ended up the way he looks. It's really pitiful that he has to pay for his parent's misdeeds.

Okay enough of the poor kid. Anyway, if you happen to have someone whom annoys the shit out of you, this is the time for vengeance. Just tell that person you'd dress up as him/her for Halloween this year. Nuff said.

Happy Halloween.

Sim Card Anda t'lah Berjaya

This person must have thought that I'm foolish enough to fall for it.

During my schooling days, my teeth were the envy of all my friends as they were perfectly straight. I never had braces and yet my teeth were in perfect semicircles. I could bite into jelly like a mold without leaving any uneven marks on the jelly. For those who do not know me thought that the straightness was because of braces. But it is all natural. Gift from God.

Things stated changing as I left high school and subsequently furthered my studies. My wisdom tooth started growing. The wisdom tooth on one side grew and started to push my teeth out of alignment. They are a bit crooked but still looks quite straight from far. The depressing thing now is the other wisdom tooth began to emerge lately. I am rather worried now as this tooth might push my teeth totally out of alignment and I might require braces to rectify the problem. My jaws are not big enough to accommodate all the teeth.

The headache now is to find a dentist with caliber to restore my crowning glory to it's glory days without breaking my jaw. The last time I had my tooth removed, the dentist almost dislocate my jaw. He tried removing my tooth before my gums became totally numb from the injection. After my tooth was removed, my gums couldn't stop bleeding. It was like a river of blood and I have to have my face in the sink every few minutes as my mouth became a reservoir of blood. Subsequently I had to go back to him to stop the bleeding. The dentist placed a pill into the wound and that hurt like hell. I have been traumatized since that incident. In a dilemma now. Sigh. Life.

Ah....let's see. What can be said of this digits. 10.10.10. As a gimmick, it was said that this day signifies perfection. According to the chinese saying, the number 10 symbolises perfection (in cantonese "Sap chuen sap mei", or in mandarin "szer quen szer may"). So upon hearing this, baffoons rush to register their marriage on this day in hopes that their marriage will be perfect. I hate to break this to them, but whether or nor your marriage is going to be perfect is dependant on the person that you choose to be with for the rest of your life and not a day per se.

These people also chose to register their marriage on this day because it's a once in a lifetime opportunity that the the numbers for the dd/mm/yy will be the same. The same was said for 08.08.08 and 09.09.09. Anyway, if you want to have the same number for the day-month-year on your marriage certificate, you can still do so for 11.11.11 and 12.12.12. If you don't register your marriage by then, you are doomed. You will be alone for the rest of your life. HAHAHAHA. I wonder why nobody said anything about 01.01.01, 02.02.02, 03.03.03, 04.04.04, 05.05.05, 06.06.06, and 07.07.07.

There was a great buzz on weddings for this date but nothing was mentioned for births and deaths. The gimmick for births could be delivering on the 10 October 2010 at 10.10 a.m/p.m.. It could have been said that babies born on this particular day would be perfect. Although we all know that a perfect baby would be dependant on the parents genes. Lousy genes will lead to lousy babies regardless of them being born on a perfect day. Hence there is no need to get feng shui consultation for the right timing of birth. Why weren't there any advertisement on the perfect death? The gimmick would be dying on the 10.10.10 would imply that you have lived a fulfilling life or born imperfect but died perfect. Point to ponder.

What Did You Call Me?!!!

When I came out from the bathroom this afternoon, I heard a beep from my phone. Upon checking my phone, I noted that I have a missed call. However, the call was from an unknown number. I thought to myself, "Well, if it's urgent the person will call back". Hence, I continued doing my stuff, that is getting dressed. A few minutes later, my phone rang again. This time my hands were covered in soap and it seem difficult in washing it off. Then the ringing stopped. I dried my hands and walked back into my room. Before I could have a look at my phone, it rang again. This time I managed to answer the call.

Me: Hello.

Unidentified caller: Mummy....

Me: (Thinking to myself, when did I become a mum?) Who are you looking for?

Unidentified caller: Oh, sorry. (in slow motion) [as though I was pulling his leg]

Caller hangs up.

Excuse me!! When did I get promoted to Mum status? What's wrong with this person? He doesn't even know his own mother's handphone number. It is fine that you can't remember you friends' number, but your family members' number?...Especially your parents!! Sheesh! Can't even tell the difference in my voice. Rather give birth to roasted pork than you (literally translated from the cantonese proverb 'Sanng kao char siew hou kor sanng lei').

How Mid Autumn Festival Came Into Being

In conjunction with the Mid-Autumn Festival a.k.a. the Moon cake festival, I would like to share some folklore on Mid Autumn festival. Personlly, I didn't even know of the first three folklore and only found out about them while watching a television programme yesterday. Not too sure if I got it right as the programme was in Mandarin. My Mandarin proficiency is that of a Primary school kid or perhaps kindy level as I am English educated and have never had any official lessons on Mandarin. So don't penalise me if the folklore aren't accurate.

Folklore 1

A long, long time ago, there were 10 suns shining down on earth. The heat emitted by the sun was unbearable, resulting in drought and withering crops. Then a warrior named Ho Yi shot nine arrows into the sky and extinguished 9 of the 10 suns. The Earth was then left with one sun shining down on it. A goddess descended from the Heavens and awarded Ho Yi with an elixir of immortality. Ho Yi the warrior then gave the elixir to his wife Chang Er. One day, when Ho Yi was away from home, a man with bad intentions went to his house. This man called Peng Meng tried to steal the elixir from Chang Er as he wanted to be immortal. The warrior’s wife, Chang Er knowing that she couldn’t fight off Peng Meng, swallowed the elixir. She then floated and ascended to the sky and landed on the moon. She has been living on the moon ever since. Hence on the fifteenth of the eighth month on the Chinese lunar calendar, people will pay tribute to the lady in the moon with hope of getting a blessing from above.

Folklore 2

Once upon a time, three Gods descended from the Heaven and disguised themselves as 3 pitiful old men. They met three animals on Earth namely a Monkey, a Fox and a Rabbit. The three men then asked for some food from the three animals. Both the Monkey and the Fox offered the three men the food that they have. The Rabbit, not having anything to give to the three men offered itself and leapt into the fire. Touched by the Rabbits sacrifice, the three men transformed the Rabbit into the Jade Rabbit when the rabbit ascended to heaven. The Jade Rabbit resides on the Moon and makes elixir. On the fifteenth of the eighth month on the Chinese lunar calendar, the “shadow/image” of the Jade Rabbit pounding Elixir could be spotted on the Moon.

Folklore 3

Legend has it that there is a wood cutter that chops trees in the Moon. His name is Wu Gang. He was demoted from his warrior position because of a mistake he made. As punishment, he was made a wood cutter at the Moon Palace. Wu Gang could never finish chopping the tree because every time the tree is chopped it would restore itself magically. Hence this is an eternal punishment to Wu Gang as he has to chop the laurel tree that will never fall. It is claimed that on the fifteenth of the eighth lunar month of the Chinese calendar, the “image/shadow” of a wood cutter could be seen on the full moon.

Folklore 4 (This I have eard of)

Once upon a time, a war erupted. The army contingents have to be very cautious of their speech as there were spies among them. The battle plans were highly confidential. Hence it could not be communicated to their comrades in letters for fear of the plans being leaked to the enemy. They then came up with a plan. The battle plans were communicated in strips of paper placed in moon cakes that are sent to their comrades in other army contingents. That is how the moon cake came into being.

"Coaster" Highway

Just the other day, when I logged into Facebook, I saw a post that made me laugh my head off. It was posted by someone who claims she is genius in everything and the rest of the world are retards. She posted " Stuck in stupid jam at COASTER HIGHWAY". What the hell.

I suppose having a baby made her lose half of her brains. Or perhaps she didn't have much to begin with. She couldn't tell the difference between COASTER and COASTAL. Coaster Highway. HAHAHAHA. No wonder she's stuck in it.

Anyway, I do not usually penalise people for spelling mistakes but because she is an anal bitch that attacked me for no apparent reason, it is only just that a post is written on her pathetic mistake.

Stupidest Dream Ever

Last night, I had the stupidest dream ever. In the dream my mother was shrieking while spraying insecticide at the lizard (just as what she always does in real life). She was calling out to me to hit the lizard with a broom. Being the ever filial me, I obliged, took a broom and went to her rescue. I lifted the broom and hit the lizard. It fell to the ground and bit me in the foot. The bite was so painful and surreal. My foot actually felt painful when the lizard bit it.

The strange thing is I actually remember the dream albeit it is a stupid one. What does that dream mean anyway? Is it a bad omen? Besides, lizards don't bite. Or do they? I don't think lizards have teeth. Or does someone with features of a lizard is out to get me? Perhaps someone whose name has the word l-i-z-a-r-d in it out to get me.

I Dreamed A Dream

Glee has again sung a song that depicts my feeling.

I Dreamed A Dream (Glee cast version)

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung no wine untasted

But the tigers come at night
(But the tigers come at night)
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
(As they tear your hope apart)
And they turn your dream to shame

And still I dream he'll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed

As usual, clip taken from youtube and lyrics googled.

Additional Flavouring

I was really hungry this morning but there was nothing to munch on. Hence, I decided to fill my stomach with instant noodles. I looked into the cabinet in search for instant noodles to cook. After looking through the different flavours of noodles in the cabinet, I decided to go for the 'dry' style noodle.

After cooking the noodles, I transfered the drained noodles into a plate to be mixed with the flavouring. I was about to eat it when my eye spotted something on the rim of the plate. To my horror it was a worm. I was so grossed out by that worm hence I threw the plate of noodles away. After packing the noodles in a plastic bag, I poured the bowl of water that was used to cooked the noodles into the kitchen sink. That was when I saw the other family members of the worm. There were all different sizes of worms in the sink from big to minute ones. Thankfully I didn't put that plate of cooked noodles into my mouth.

Meet Mr Worm's family members.

That tiny spck to the right in the above photo is the baby of the family.

The moral of the story is, "Don't consume noodles that have been around for a while".

Farewell Old Faithful

The sky was dark and gloomy this morning. The wind stated blowing and got stronger by the minute. The silence of the morning was filled with the sound of thunder. The strong wind blew everything in every direction. It was as though the wind would turn into a tornado. It was as though the sky was reflecting Old Faithful's feelings.

The sound of metal banging incessantly and the countless attempts to ignite the Old Faithful's heart was akin to a marching band in practice. A peek out the window, there stood a man persistantly plonking away on Old Faithful's chest. First attempt, Old Faithful'd heart beat a while then stopped. The man then embarked on the second attempt. Negative. Third attempt. The sky started pouring. The sound of metal banging ceased. It poured like the dam in heaven broke.

At that moment it seemed like Old Faithful was crying. Saddened by the fact that she will no longer be staying with the family she has been with for the past 20 over years. After a while, the rain stopped. The sound of plonking resumed.

The man tried to revive Old Faithful's heart. A heartbeat was detected but ceased in a matter of moments. A few more attempts ensued. Then it poured again. And all resurrection activity ceased. It rained a while then it stopped. The plonking sound resumed. This time, Old Faithful's heart stated beating. The plonking sound stopped. Then there were sound of cars driving by, followed by silence.

When I looked out the window again, Old Faithful was gone. She left without bidding farewell. My heart sank. The spot where Old Faithful used to occupy is now left with memories of what used to be there. I truely feel the saying 'You don't know what you've got until it's gone', now. Old faitful has been family even before I was born. It has been servicing us from kindy through high school and even part of college, when it's health deteriorated. Farewell Old Faithful. May you be happy with your new family. I miss you.

I received a message from a friend about an outing today. That prompted me to look at the calendar and realised, gosh my birthday is less than a week away. I can't believe it. How fast time passes by. A year ago, I had to put up with old kids ( that is adults that behave like kids) during the time of my birthday. What a horrible experience that was. Dealing with kids is bad enough but dealing with old kids is just terrible. Fast forward a year later, all I can say is the old kids are not getting anywhere bigger or should it be older. In fact they seem to be reversing into toddlers and foetuses and soon disintegrating back into ovum and sperms. Anyway sarcasm aside.

I don't know whether I should be rejoicing that I am soon to be a year older or be depressed that my youth is fading away. I suppose the Peter Pan syndrome does not apply to everyone. If you are wondering what the Peter Pan syndrome is, it is a term that I have coined to describe people that refuses to grow up, just like Peter Pan himself. Someone must have hit the forward button cause I am certainly brisking through my teens and early years of adulthood.

If anyone asks, I am sixteen. More exact fifteen going on sixteen. (Winks)

Leave Right Now

Using songs to describe my emotions.

Leave Right Now
By Will Young

[Verse 1]
I'm here just like I said
Though its breaking every rule I've ever made
My racing heart is just the same
Why make it strong to break it once again?
And I'd love to say I do
Give everything to you
But I can never now be true
So I say...

I think I'd better leave right now
Before I fall any deeper
I think I'd better leave right now
Feeling weaker and weaker
Somebody better show me out
Before I fall any deeper
I think I'd better leave right now

[Verse 2]
I'm here so please explain
Why you're opening up a healing wound again
I'm a little more careful
Perhaps it shows
But if I lose the highs, at least I'm spared the lows

Now I tremble in your arms
What could be the harm
To feel my spirit calm
So I say..

[Repeat Chorus]

[Middle 8]
I wouldn't know how to say
How good it feels seeing you today
I see you've got your smile back
Like you say your right on track
But you may never know why
Once bitten twice is shy
If I'm proud perhaps I should explain
I couldn't bear to lose you again

[Repeat Chorus]

Yes I will...

[Repeat Chorus]

I can't find the download for this song.If anyone is able to, kindly let me know where I can download the song.

Total Eclipse Of The Heart

When I first heard this song on Glee, I didn't really fancy it. However, it did sound really familiar. Then I looked it up in youtube. I have indeeed heard of this song before. When I was little. It is either a late 80s or early 90s song. How do I recall hearing this song? Well, it is because I have cousins in their teens during that decade. Lol. Anyway, this song has been repeatedly played on my Ipod as it has become quite personal and relatable. It kinda describes part of my life.

Total Eclipse Of The Heart - Glee cast version

(Turn around) every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you're never coming round
(Turn around) every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears
(Turn around) every now and then I get a little bit nervous that the best of all the years have gone by
(Turn around) every now and then I get a little bit terrified and then I see the look in your eyes

(Turn around, bright eyes) Every now and then I fall apart
(Turn around, bright eyes) Every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight and I need you more than ever
And if you only hold me tight We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right 'cause we'll never be wrong
Together we can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time (all of the time)
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight, forever's gonna start tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love, but now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do... a total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time there was light in my life, but now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say... a total eclipse of the heart

(Turn around) bright eyes, Every now and then I fall apart
(Turn around) bright eyes, Every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you'll only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
Cause we'll never be wrong together
We can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time (all of the time)
I don't know what to do, I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
Nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
A total eclipse of the heart
A total eclipse of the heart
Turn around, bright eyes

Cursed By The Cold Bug

I was cursed by the cold bug when I woke up from my slumber yesterday. I couldn't stop sneezing. My nose was like a faulty running tap. I kept sneezing and blowing my nose till it hurt so badly. I decided to let my antibody do the fighting. When my antibody could no longer fight the cold bug, I had to resort to taking the cold medication.

All was well after I took the cold medicine. My nose stopped running and I was active as ever. All was well until the effects of the medication starts kicking in. I began feeling drowsy and my whole body became limp. All that I was able to do was to lie down. I tried to get some sleep to overcome it but all that I was able to do was to drift in and out of sleep. The hangover of the medication was indeed terrible. But it indeed managed to stop the sneezing and runny nose right after the medicine is consumed.

As it was the last pill I had, I asked my mum to buy me some from the pharmacy. When she got back she informed me that the pharmacist said that the medicine is no longer available as it contained some controlled substance favoured by drug addicts. No wonder the hangover was so severe. Laughs. I took the final control substance medication and ended up with a terrible hangover.

Guatamala Sinkhole 2010

I was reading the newspaper the other day and a picture caught my attention. There was a huge hole in the picture. And surrounding that hole were buildings that resembles houses. The description below the picture was that it was a sinkhole in the Guatamala city. Goodness gracious. Seriously, Guatamala has been hit with several natural disasters within a few days. Since the report in the newspaper was yesterday's news, I did some searching on the internet to find out more. Luckily there weren't anyone in the building that went into the sinkhole. That hole looks so deep and huge. It's creepy. It is like going to bed and waking up the following day to find yourself in the center of the earth. Yikes.

A photo of the sinkhole taken from Google.

Out Of Service

The past week has been the most furstrating week. Having to deal with incompetant people really makes one's blood boil. It all started with a phone call to the internet service provider with a request to get the password for the internet connection. All hell broke loose there on. That particular phone call proved to be "fatal". There was no internet connection right after that call. Flat. Negative. For one whole week!

Why was that phone call made in the first place? Well, the story begins with a router. All this while my computers have be running on cable for internet connection. Then the router showed up and messed things up. And you thought that plugging in all the wires and cables will make your home a WiFi zone, Boy are you wrong! The router has to go through some setting that is totally alien to me. Well, although I did touch a little on IT stuff in university but all that was purely theoretical. This whole setting thing was certainly not part of the syllabus. Especially so for non IT majors.

Anyway, because of that setting up the whole router thing, I was told that I needed the username and password for my internet account. That was a really big problem as all this while the computers have been automatically connected to the internet whenever it is turned on. Having used this broadband thing for 6 years or so without having to type the connection details each time has indeed made us forgetful. I don't even remember what the username and password is anymore since it has not been in use all this while. So a call was made to the service provider company to get it.

After giving us our account details, we could no longer connect to the internet. That resulted in multiple calls to the telco requesting them to help us solve the problem through out the entire week, several calls a day. The result was they kept guiding me through the same steps that leads no where. At the end of every call, there is no internet connection and the hang up tagline from the telco's side is "Is there anything else that I can help you with?". Well, there certainly is. FIX MY INTERNET CONNECTION!

The whole cycle is repeated throughout the week. I even requested that the telco send their technician over everytime I call but they never did for they don't do house calls. So for the whole week, It was call after call repeating the same matter over and over to a string of telco employees with no conclusion.

Why does an internet service provider company monopolise the internet service industry when it clearly doesn't have the capabilities to do so? If a company wants to be the pioneer in the internet service industry, the least it can do is to have competant employees who can comprehand the English language, listens before executing, and is able to solve problems that is caused by the stupidity of their own staff.

I am so bloated right now that I can't even sit. I should have drank so much but I just couldn't help it. The extremely hot weather made me extremely thirsty. Groan. How does one get rid of the bloated feeling?

Post-Purchase Disonance

Murphy's Law has always been synonymous with my haircuts. According to Murphy's Law "If anything can go wrong, it will". The same theory applies to every haircut that I get. It never turns out right. Regardless of which hairstylist I go to, professionally acclaimed ones, costing a bomb, the end product is always the same...DISSAPOINTING and DISASTROUS.

The current phase that I am going through is known as Post-Purchase Disonance. Post- Purchase Disonance is whereby, after a purchase, the consumer deliberates whether or not they have made the correct decision in purchasing a particular product and might feel that an alternative would have been a more preferable choice.

I am currently deliberating whether or not I have done the right thing in getting the haircut. Perhaps I should have just kept the hair for a little longer. The thing is, my "fringe" was long and I was starting to look like a red indian. (No offence to the red indians. Just trying to describe my hair). But I suppose it is much better than looking like a country bumpkin-retard now. Why do the hairstylist with "professional" certification, acclaimed expertise and years of experience never fail to make me look like crap? Why is it so difficult for them to give me nice, decent, and presentable haistyles?

There should be an accreditation board to govern the hairstyling industry and a benchmark should be set as to what falls under the constituence of decent and presentable. Perhaps it should be more like the professional bodies of Accounting whereby there are accounting standards to govern the profession and those practising it needs to abide with the standards set. Hairstylists that do not abide by the standards would have their licenses revoked or pay a hefty penalty. Hairstylists should also be banned from claiming themselves as professionals unless they have passed the examinations as what accountants go through to get their professional status. Hairstylists should also be compelled to attend improvement courses annually to retain their professional titles lest their skills and standard deteriorate.

Argh!!!... What can I do about my hair now? Frustrating. Emo big time.

I'm Back

Howdy, I'm back from the non-blogging break. Computer died on me in the previous post. Technically it didn't die entirely. Just got totally blind on one side which make things really difficult. Perhaps that is called "died" or "dead". Anyway, nothing much to say in this entry. Just wanted to announce that I'm back from the hiatus.

Goodness, it is really hot! So hot that makes one wanna take off all clothes and jump into the sea or a pool to cool off (just metaphorically speaking). Anyway, the water would be too hot and it would be akin to dipping in a boiling pot of water. The weather is killing me.

Lappy Breathing Its Last

I am sadden to announce that Lappy is breathing its last. I can hardly read what's on the display anymore. There are probably many spelling errors in this entry as I can't read what on the other half of the screen. Farewell Lappy. May you rest in peace. Love you always. XOXO
