rat tat tat

ratatouille(rat-a-too-ee)

was simply fantastically fantastic!


thumbs up. 
I've always liked pixar movies. nott that much bout shrek.

but anw.

since the incredibles. no animated film has made me laugh so much and feel so satisfied before!

definitely made me change my views bout rats. (not that 
I'll really embrace them if ever see one whole clan) but I'm not so fearful of a rat anymore. but seriously rats ARE dirty and disgusting so after watching this movie dont assume your pet rat or whatever can cook and really have humane feelings. its crazy. though it would be nice if that really happens.



SOOO CUTE

hahA

hmm but 
I wonder what the real ratatouille tastes like. really as nice as how the movie described meh? hahA I'm quite a food critic myself. v was practically drooling while watching the movie lor. nice nice nice french food. I LIKE!

suddenly 
I'm starting to lament the fact that ppl cant be who they wanna be. hahA like how remy the rat cant be accepted as a chef simply becoz of his rat status...

but ohh well. thats life. bahhhh 
I'm getting so emotional over this.

I feel like cooking.

after all. anyone can cook!

hahAhaHa >.<

when things go wrong

watch 1 litre of tears
yes. the jdrama.


heart wrenching and motivating at the same time. this jdrama wont fail to let u reconsider your direction in life.

basically its bout a girl named aya who was diagnosed with this INCURABLE disease called spinocerebellar degeneration disease. and how despite that she continued to live a purposeful life.

hee.

its damn nice can. 
I've learnt to appreciate life more. and to think positively from now onwards.

well. the special thing bout this drama is that. after watching it. 
I think I really shed 1 litre of tears. the last episode was the killer one. I used up almost the whole box of tissues lor!

hahA. hahA.

pls go watch it. dont consider anymore. u wont regret if u go watch it. (besides, the female lead erika sawajiri is pretty. and the doc fujiki naohito who is in charge of her too. SO SUAVE!)

hahA. definitely recommended. one of my favs now.

anw.

must treasure life.
after all.

“Just being alive is such a lovely and wonderful thing." =]

well. the one I watched years ago was in cantonese. but I can only find the eng dubbed online.

here it is

click the 'previous' to watch the movie all the way to the end.

anw.

1 thing in the movie that has turned into like a commercial opportunity for the producers is the sakuma drops i.e the hard candy


HAHA I bo liao until I go and take a photo of it. hee.
anw the shop more than words were selling it and wth I bought it. I think its like 2weeks now and I still cant bear to open it lah. actually I just opened it.

BUT some camwhoring. as usual. before we get a heart attack at the d'marquee
.
.
.
.
.

and gosh this robot or whatsoever is soo damn cute. not very nicely constructed though
(plus 
I see alot of masking tape behind lor) how the hell is he gonna move?


wahh sexy ar. 
I was wondering how long she was gonna pose there. coz she really posed veryyyyyyyyyyy long.....


CHICKEN LITTLE!
or rather chicken BIG. so cute lor.
he got scared when 
I stood next to him for a photo. and started dancing when there was some music starting on the stage.


spiderman. I HATE.
but for chaijun. 
I just take lor. basically this one not bad leh. out of all.


YUNA!



and now for u to compare:



to...


NANA. omgomgomg.
I was sooooo HAPPY. I wanted to ask her soo many many qns! soo much that I think I could talk to her for 1h! but due to our HECTIC schedule I couldnt even ask for anything more other than a photo. bahhhh.


like last year. GRAFFITI! but 
I think the stupid SOS spoil everything


hahA jianming. 
I almost freaked out when I saw him. couldnt even recognise him even though he was like in front of me lor. (and can someone pls tell me WHY my legs open until so unglam?)


ohhh gosh. for this. I SCREAM. coz this little girl is just SO CUTE!
omg dont know why she just stand there in the middle of nowhere and let so many strangers shoot her. flash flash flash. as in the camera shoot...
C-U-T-E. and she looked into my camera even though there were soo many guys shooting her too! CUTE! me heart melt alr.
and look at the way she stands. ahhh.

her mum's so cool. I'm gonna be a cool mum too. pls infer. hehE


these 
I dont know what...anyhow take photo lor.


the blue girl's harp strings were wobbling lor. she should have tightened it more! hahahahaha so funny.
I just tried to take as many nice photos I can take as possible de. rush for time.


haizz 
I blurred this whole bunch of bleach.
showing the pic to my mum:"korkor got these in his display cabinets."

"................................."


coz apparently he has loads of figurines mah. close to a hundred maybe? but majority of them are naruto. GOSH and 
I didnt take any photos of naruto. SADSAD.


but anws. at least 
I saw my fav NANA rite. though I think I am more nana than her in terms of attitude. coz she was very polite. aiyah whatever lah the way she speaks just isnt like nana lor...





so its time to say goodbye. sian lah less than 1h at cosfest leh. 
next year dont care I'm gonna really get confirmation from alot of ppl to go with me lor.


hmph. 
I know. its funny.

condor the great

I'm having SERIOUS withdrawal syndrome

just finished watching return of the condor heroes (神鵰俠侶) on 'crunchyroll' and wth 
I'm overcome with grief. grief of no more of ROCH to watch.



HAIZZ.

the show is soooo damn nice can.

at 1st i watch coz of xiaolongnu (acted by liu yifei) one. 
I bet thats what most of the ppl do. coz she very pretty.



hahA. but as 
I progressed on I became entwined in the storyline and eventually I think yangguo not bad wor. (at 1st I thought he was normal looking.)

anw yangguo should change his hairstyle.

BUT.thats not the point.
I'm feeling a sense of loss. sense of sublimity. the type of feeling u get after watching a GREAT movie. like hotel rwanda or sth along those lines. hahA.

the thing is. 
I think the author of this novel jin yong is really a great author. I mean. all the novels he wrote are amazing.

BY THE WAY
I didnt know there is actually a condor trilogy:
1. legend of the condor hero
2. return of the condor hero
3. heavenly sword and dragon sabre

HAHA. BET U DIDNT KNOW TOO

anw. its amazing how jin yong magically adds things to his stories.

u know. like the whatever skills and wu3gong1 they possess. like
18 Dragon-Subduing Palms (降龙十八掌).
Divine Finger Thrust (彈指神通).
Divine Toad Stance (蛤蟆功).
Dog-Beating Stick Technique (打狗棒法).
Jade Maiden Sword Play (玉女劍法).
blah blah the list goes on.

its just like the modern day harry potter lor. both are good in their ways lah.

anw.

there are lots of things he added in. like real ppl. eg. the great khan and the likes. he also used ppl from san guo yan yi. in other novels lah.

BUT STILL

ROCH is great just coz liu yifei is in it.

actually 
I got lotsa things to write. but my mind is in a whirl now so I cant think.

I can give u 5 gd reasons why u should watch this '06 version of ROCH

1 great skills and fighting scenes. (hurhur if u like wuxia stuffs lah)
I've alr mentioned above. hmm I dont know if its coz of my dad's genes or sth. like him. I also like watching gu3zhuang1 shows. coz got nice costumes. and the fighting. HAHA. ok I'm sidetracking but anw if u too then watch it

2 ayumi songs

hahA actually this very little lah. at some parts 
I heard ayumi's songs as the background music. abit weird though. ohh and towards the end there is this character called guo xiang. she's real cute. and looks like.
AYUMI.


not in this pic but in the show can tell more. that is what 
I think lah. but watch it if u want lor.

3 liu yifei lah!

OMG and 
I just realised she has a jap single! +++ points! HAHA u know u got my attention if u sing jap! yepp she has released her mandarin album too



this jap song
Mayonaka No Door is used as theme song for Japanese anime, “Power Puff Girls Z.” cool huh. abit not the genre I listen to. but its cute lah. there is also a chi version. hahA.

and. she dances. go see for yourself in youtube if u dont believe.
the link
its quite weird though to see her demure demure type. but dancing like that. blehx. but not bad lah. 
I like her silver skirt. =(

4 how villains are NOT villains

dont get what I mean? hahA this is getting so literaturish. I SHOULD HAVE STUDIED CHI LIT.

ok. the antagonists in this show. as evil as they seemed. are portrayed such that we feel empathy for them too. hurhur. dont get it?

li mo chou.


she's evil alrite but when they show how she luvs and would die for a baby and actually how she luvs 1 person and 1 only. u sort of heart softened and think that she's not that evil after all.

gong sun zhi.


rarr he's a pervert. powerful one at that. but its only coz he has a VERY controlling wife which is 
I think thats why he cant take it. ya. dont want say anything more.

and jin lun da wang.

(the middle one)

wahh this one the best.

he tried to save guo xiang in the end and sooo he died.(
I think this is an adaptation coz the real thing is he kena killed by yangguo)
but anw he tried to save a little girl. isnt that sweet?
5 for leisure
YA.

BONUS 6 the female chars are actually all very pretty.
even right up to the villain. except for the obvious ones. like old hag or sth.






yepp actually I think this show got some blunders here and there so just watch it for leisure. and also to refresh your memory of ROCH. since there had been so many remakes.

hahA.
blunder 1I can see yangguo's arms even though they are cut off lor. diao rite.

blunder 2
damnit the animals in this show are so fake can. 
I think they budget thats why. ALL the animals wor leopards. nine-tail foxes. AND THE CONDOR. technology is sooo advanced cant they make it real? I'm sure its possible. coz the animals were really too fake for a show to be made in 2006. blehx.

blunder 3small blunder lah. not only my own opinion. coz this show is long. so I suppose they cut it so that its of suitable no.of episodes. but still. the scenes are often very abrupt. and dont have FLOW. like 1 moment they fighting then next moment they show the other characters happy (for the good fight) but I think its too awkward. THE EDITING IS REALLY SHIT. they should make it more SUBTLE.

blunder 4
yangguo SHOUTS too much in this remake. period.



aiyahz hahA 
I;m supposed to be appreciating this serial why like suddenly become critical.

I feel like I'm doing critical analysis. HAHA.
anw want to know more then click for wikipedia.

I dont like her plaids hairstyle. the normal one better.


actually. yangguo real life not bad de leh.




haizz but 
I cant slp. for the past few days I've been watching ROCH until late of the late. coz u just wanna watch the next epi and on and on and so everyday I'll watch until 3am+ or sth. hahA.

ok the reason why 
I titled this 'condor the great' is coz I think the condor in the show very cute lor. =]

closure

happy april fools day

on fri. 30th mar. that fateful day.
my vocal class went back to m5 and see our vocal teacher michele for the last
time there.

yepp we've all decided to quit.
although the boss wanted to put us in the performing grp.
and we are gonna have a photoshoot somewhere in april de lor (if the boss never
cheat us lah)
u might think 
I'm stupid but. I dont know.
I had to quit. lots of reasons. lots of stuffs that no one else understands...
but. but 
I know I will continue all this only after my A levels. ya.

but thats not the point.
for the 1st time then 
I realised my class became so united. a
need our friendships forged were so deeply entrenched in our hearts.
haizz felt sad that we're separating lor.

that day we went ps buy some present for michele. hah it was the most
memorable and meaningful present ever lor. 
I think.

but ya. we went back there and started chatting and...
I just felt guilty and
sad and everything. for quitting so suddenly and....haizz. then later we
started jamming again!

zhuan shu tian shi.

stef and me play guitar and piano. then we all got sing. and recorded it
down. with our 'last words'.
if theres fate maybe 
I'll let u hear the song...

aiyah all in all it was a great nite.



the whole singing experience started soft. with the 4 of us not
knowing each other.
.
.
.
.
.
.
everyone had flaws. michele took great patience to teach us.
.
.
.
.
.
it ended with a bang. the best ending ever. it had to end this way.
.
.
.
.
but the 4 of us will continue on our journey towards our goals. no
matter what they are.
.
.
.
of coz michele will jiayou too.
.
.
we all must
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
.
but then again. its not as if we are living in some 3rd world country where we
wont have chance to contact each other again. we promised to go sing karaoke
some day. 
I hope we do sometime soon!



will always remember the moments...

NTU HSS

haha.
like at last. 
I'm uploading the pics of our m5 performance at NTU HSS last
last last...fri

mandy put damn alot of chemicals on my hair
and started plaiting it. OMG 
I felt like an object when she was fiddling with
my hair! but nvm it was a great experience lah.

yepp. it was a freakingly bad performance
coz the speakers faced the audience and dont know why our music soo soft so in the
end we couldnt hear the music and talalala u know it lah how can anyone sing
on beat if u cant hear the music.

but then we tried our best lor. cannot hear also must sing all the way finish
mah. but our vocal teacher michele say actually we not bad alr. so 
I shant
blame myself anymore.

great thing was after the whole thing the
boss of angelsky. 
I just know thats an organisation. well anw he treated all of
us to dinner. woot. nice. got fried mantou. I LIKE.

I realised there is a lot to learn if u
wanna go into the entertainment industry.

have to know to suck up. smile. and always
ready to take photos and finally suck up to the boss. and basically act like
mister nice guy around everybody else.

its really not that glamarous and free and
easy like ppl think it to be. its tough.

but if your passion and drive is there. it
will overcome anything lah. HAHA.


reminds me of lit. its like a facet ppl put
up.


well but other than that. the singing part is
real lah.


but...I luv cam whoring!

(from clockwise top left)
1 me and my that song partner stephanie. she
is so damn chio lah.

2 jian ming.then ryan. both from my vocal

msia again

ya soo lag. here are the msia pics.

I hate going back lah.

its inconvenient.dirrty.boring.superhot

to go shopping. u need to drive to the area where all the shops are. and risk it
being stolen or whatsoever.

sooo. 
I just stay in the house all day lor. stare.maybe see a few lizards
crawling and give a few screams. I HATE LIZARDS.

anw.

back at my paternal grandfather's 80th bdae celebration. at mentakab.pahang



the birthday cake. hilariously polka dotty. I
hate polka dots.

then there was the reunion foto.



yay then my fav part. at nite we go the
night market.



and as always up on the wires are all the
birdies. FULL of birds. on top of signboards too. anywhere they could stand
lah.

nth much to say. I dont like it here anw. it was a >8h car trip from
singapore. my butt would have felt better with some massaging from u peeps.

anw.

later we headed to muar. where my maternal grandmother is. muar is just a 2h
or so drive from singapore.
I like it better here. its cleaner.livelier.and kids for me to play with. AND
the ppl here pay to install TALL TALL wires on their roofs so that singaporean
channels can be braodcasted. ya so the best part was that 
I could watch
singapore shows.

AIYAH 
I realised I forgot to take photo with my fav cousin.fuyi.

instead 
I took alot of zilian shots with his younger sis henna. wow she has
double chin sia



so cute hor? damn lah why my face suddenly
become so big de.....

and hor. in singapore 
I dont even bother going to markets. but at there whenever
the adults say they wanna go out I would jump up and follow wherever it is
they are going lah. better than stoning all day in the house.



ya they went market. and this fish is NOT
sold in singapore. its used for making fishcakes. quite nice when u steam it
lah.



but then u can see how sian I was.

henna wanted to play games at the arcade.



haizz very fun meh...
I think the dogs in their house more fun.



the black one is the mum.mimi



white one is her son.xiaoxiong. for your info
they are chained up and subjected to rain.shine.storm.whatever u name it.
poor things.

kk. zilian time. I took my grandmother's hat.



no its no for farming purposes.she wears it
when she goes out to hang clothes. coz its always scorching hot lah...but 
I
like it!

hahA the best part is probably taking a million fotos of henna lah. she's
damn zilian and a POSER


what the hell we ask her to pose and she just do all these weird poses. soooo
cute lah. she loves her vampire teeth.and is almost as tall as xiaoxiong.
doesnt the middle one remind u of some aRTISTE from taiwan?

WAHAHA.

but still 
I'm pissed I was forced to go msia with them. make me
lose the opportunity for BETTER things. u know it...
