One of the boys



I have been schooling with girls most of my education life other than kindergarten and college. So, my contact with boys are some what very very very minimum... is not that I desperately want to know boys during my teenage years is the exposure is late. But then if I think about it, it's actually a good thing, at least I graduate secondary with good grades, I didn't let my parents worried about me and boys and blah blah blah...

Anyhow, other than my schooling days that I barely have contact with boys but in my family, I always get to hang out with boys. I have a one and only brother and lots of cousin brothers! I kinda grew up boyishly.

During my college years, I start to get along with a lot of boys. I guess girls around me would probably think that I'm a bitach for always hanging out with boys. Honestly, hanging out with boys are so much easier than hanging out with girls. For all the girls out there, you do know what I'm talking about right? Girls tends to have those backstabbing, gossips, fake, girl cat fights issues. Which I think NO ones likes it. With boys, you can be straight forward when talking, can talk about any topics (other than girls stuff, like shopping, makeups and etc), and of course being just the only girl in the gang of boys, boys will somewhat protect/sayang the girl which is good. You feel you have the privileged on certain treatments and of course protected from danger.

Years gone by, I do still am hanging out with boys most of the time but all the boys treats me like one of the boys. FML but I do keep a balance, I do talk about my girl stuffs with my best girlfriends! *hugs to all my best girlfriends* Boys are not so sensitive when it comes to these kind of stuff.

Hope you all do like the Katy Perry's One of the Boys song. Share your experiences with me if you all experience the same as me.

Sleepwalker

I know, I know, Adam Lambert had came and gone and so does Paramore, but to fans that did went or did not when to both of these concerts are still having withdrawal symptoms. I can still remember how was I when I went to Avril's concert! The before and after withdrawal symptoms can last for quite sometime and all you gonna talk and listen to is about them! ROFL

Anyways, I really like this song a lot from Adam's album. It truly speak out how much you love that someone but yet could not yet any in return and you just hanging there wondering *stuck*. Sad and cruel but true.




I saw a picture of you
Hanging in an empty hallway
I heard a voice that I knew
And I couldn't walk away
It took me back to the end
Of everything
I tasted all
I tasted all the tears
again

Outside the rain's fallin' down
There's not a drop that hits me
Scream at the sky but no sound
Is leavin' my lips
It's like I can't even feel
After the way you touched me
I'm not asleep but I'm not awake
After the way you loved me

I can't turn this around
I keep running into walls that I can't break down
I said I just wander around
With my eyes wide shut because of you
I'm a sleepwalker walker walker
I'm a sleepwalker walker walker

Let me out of this dream
Everywhere that I go
I see another memory
And all the places we used to know
They're always there to haunt me
I walk around and I feel so lost and lonely
You're everything that I want
BUT YOU DON'T WANT ME!

I can't turn this around
I keep running into walls that I can't break down
I said I just wander around
With my eyes wide shut because of you
I'm a sleepwalker walker walker
I'm a sleepwalker walker walker

Let me out of this dream, dream
Let me out of this dream

I can't turn this around
I keep running into walls that I can't break down
I said I just wander around
With my eyes wide shut because of you
I'm a sleepwalker walker walker
I'm a sleepwalker walker walker
I'm a sleepwalker walker walker
I'm a sleepwalker walker walker
Let me out of this dream

- Zen -

Ever have that feeling that all you wanted to be is just to be at a place quietly alone and just be zen/me time/doze your mind/day dream? It's not just having alone time or quiet time is consider zen time right? or doing yoga or meditation is consider zen time right? I guess, just having a temporary time to just have a peace of your mind on your own is consider zen time. At least for me.

I used to feel zen when I was in the toilet because I feel that that's the one and only place where you have your very private moments. Like you would only sing when you are bathing, some people only able to read when their doing their "business", looking yourself most in the mirror, crying and of course being zen. Is like temporary locking yourself up away from the chaotic world and just have some peace with yourself and take big steps back, take big breaths and just pause.

Lately my zen time became when I'm driving alone. I will blast my radio and auto-pilot myself and just drive. Sometimes shout my heart out to sing along with the songs I know. It's dangerous I know but somehow I find it dangerously peaceful. But I will only do it in auto-pilot mode, so no worries.

I feel that is best that we sometimes do get some time to have some peaceful thoughts because this will keep us sane from the insanity out there when you try so hard to keep up or keep hold on it.

So tell me what and when is your zen time?

The Only Exception

Got to know that Paramore is coming to KL for concert! aarrggggg~~~~ can't go to their concert! cos so GD poor! moreover no buddies to go with. DAMN!

Anyways, this song meant a lot to me *emo* so wanna share out.



When I was younger
I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind
He broke his own heart
And I watched
As he tried to reassemble it

And my momma swore that
She would never let herself forget
And that was the day that I promised
I'd never sing of love
If it does not exist


But darling,
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception

Maybe I know, somewhere
Deep in my soul
That love never lasts
And we've got to find other ways
To make it alone
Keep a straight face


And I've always lived like this
Keeping a comfortable, distance
And up until now
I had sworn to myself that I'm
Content with loneliness


Because none of it was ever worth the risk

Well, You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception

I've got a tight grip on reality
But I can't
Let go of what's in front of me here
I know you're leaving
In the morning, when you wake up
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream

Ohh~~~

You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception

And I'm on my way to believing
Oh, And I'm on my way to believing

Recharge & Rebond

Went to Singapore for a long and short holiday weekend recently. I just wanted a relaxing short holiday to get a break from the hectic life that I'm having. Wanna break out from the somehow routine lifestyle that every working person have. Wanna break out from the circle that I am in. Wanna break out from the stress that I'm having. Wanna break out from the dysfunctional that I'm having. Wanna.... just wanna go there.

Even it was a long and short trip there, I made the full use of my time there. It was a busy trip too. Busy shopping and meeting up with friends and family. Took Air Asia flight there, the fare was farking cheap! Ok la, just the return fare was farking cheap, going there the fare just normal. Guess how much is the return ticket? Is freaking farking RM8!!!!!!!!!!!! How can so cheap one? Anyhow, bought and flew there with dad. :D

Reach there, it was already dinner time, went to Hyatt to have dinner with aunties and her friends. Had a great time, bonding with family. Tired went back to aunt's place and just crash. Woke up in the morning and it's shopping day! Just love to shop in Singapore, maybe felt bored with the choices I had I guess, somehow everything is the same here, even the cheap stuff. Or maybe I'm just choosy. Before damaging my wallet, had lunch with aunt, uncle and cousin bro, dim sum, nice! ;) After that, met up with StupidGang - Kai Kai for shopping. It's been quite some time we met, everyone is just busy with their own stuff nowadays. Kai Kai just transferred to Singapore for work. So miss her being there. We shopped at Far East Plaza, my fave place to shop! Went on shopping spree for 6 hours non-stop! Disappointingly, we didn't get much stuff. Damage was minimal.... but we had a great time. Really haven't spend this much time with her already. *miss ya* Later on, went to meet up with Stephy for late night session. It's been too long ever since we last met. We wanted to go to 2AM dessert bar, due to me hearing good reviews about it. But it was quite late and the waitress told us that it's already last call for ordering and just push us out. It wasn't a good treatment, making me doubt of going there again. Maybe next time. So, we went to 24 hours Swensens and chatted till morning! Poor gal, she still need to work the next day! But I love you babe! Thank for meeting up with me! *hugz*


The next day, had Japanese food for branch with aunt and family again. Rest at home for awhile. Then went to meet up with college friends at Plaza Singapore. Never been there before, didn't expect it was a nice mall too but there wasn't time to shop (will make it another place to shop next time, LOL), so just yam ca session with the whole bunch of friends. It was quite a big bunch! Thanks for taking the time off to meet up guys! Dinner time! Gathering for the whole family, meet up with other cousin bros at Marina Sands Hotel to have dinner! The food was fantastic at Imperial Treasure Fine Dinning! *slurp slurp* It's another one of the rare and precious moments for family gathering. A lot have been going on since everyone last gather, good re-bonding moments there. Wanted to check out the Sky Park but it was close! Damn! Next time again?! LOL Went to meet up some friends for late night yam ca session again. *Whew* Was late when arrive to meet them, but they were so sweet to wait me up. All of them need to work the next day too. So didn't get to chat too late.

Last day of the trip, when to have another shopping spree at ION. Didn't damage much too but got some lovely stuffs. Lunch with a nice friend then straight have yam ca session again with one of the best college friends I have known. Shop a bit more, dinner with aunt and cousin bro. Dad was being entertain by another aunt's friends. His has the superstar treatment during this trip. It was time to say goodbye again.

Goodbyes are always hard. It was a late flight back, reached back here already pass 12am. Happy Merdeka! Tired! Super tired! Already started to miss Singapore. I don't know why but I just wanted to stay longer this time. Guess didn't want to go back to the hectic and routine lifestyle. Anyways, I got my energy and spirit charged back. Have found a bit of new goals this time, cos I was clueless on my next goal to aim for. Had a really great great great time meeting up friends and family to re-bond those long non meeting and less and less of keeping in touch. Everything it's just splendid. Make me miss more~~~ *sob sob*

Miss miss miss~~~~ hope I can visit Singapore again within a short period of time. Haiz.... dysfunctional and routine lifestyle is back but this time, my attitude has change toward it!

OLAY! OLAY! O~LAY!

OK! The title is so not about football and World Cup is already over and ya it's not Spain's song either! So, all footballers can stop reading this post or you can read on cos it's involves my naked hand...LOL
I know lately, my entries are super not posting up and even when I post up, it's all emo stuff. So, I'm going to give you guys a break. Here's a beauty post for lazy peoples! I literally mean it for lazy peoples. and YES! you can be lazy even for bathing to0! But is not like someone or some machine is going to bath for you. It's just steps to save more of your time cos everyone's life is so God DAMN busy! Yes! Now you can save minutes while bathing and nourishing your skin!

I'll stop blabbering and tell you what is so amazingly save your time while able to nourish your skin at the same time! It's Olay's Total Effect's 7-in-1 Anti-Aging Shower Cream + Body Butter (the name so farking long...LOL) YES! I've been using this and still using this for as long as I alive! Maybe you already know Olay already has such product but have you try it yet? Have you smell it yet? Have you touch it yet? NO?!!! Well, please go grab it and try it to believe it! and most of all, it farking save up your freaking busy time!

Bottles that I already finish up!

Just some quick steps that show you how amazing is this product! I mean, you know how to bath right? so don't bother ask how to bath with it. I'm just showing how it works!

 So creamy and thick!

This is how it would become when you lather it with a lot of water. Less foams = more to your skin      
This is when you just lather it will not much water. See how it's like you applying body lotion at the same time?
Look at my skin! So smooth and glittery! You probably can's see the glitters cos my hair already cover them up..wtf!
Nah! Show you how glittery it is!



The amount of glitters really is a million million million more better than any of those glitter products you buy. At least, this STICKS to your body the whole freaking 24 hours lor! It's really really that STICKY! Make your skin look brighter! I seriously didn't know it contains glitters in it. After the second time I used it, I only notice it has glitters. LOL

So now you know how good it is! GO GET IT! I think guys will eventually get it too. cos they can save the embarrassment when they go get body lotions. People are still quite conservative on guys getting body lotion for their own unless they have like really really freaking dry and scaly skin....yer....'geli lor' haha...(no offense) With this Olay's Total Effect's 7-in-1 Anti-Aging Shower Cream + Body Butter, guys can easily buy it without anyone doubting you.

You know what is the greatest part of this? It's, it could save us tons of money! Well, maybe not tons but it replace, body butter, glitter powder, anti-aging lotions and blah, blah, blah whatever products we use during showing, after showering, before showering and it's just goes on...am I right?

PS: I'm not hard selling it, it's just really amazing and I just want to share! NOW GO GET ONE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not Youth Anymore!

A month ago, a friend of mine was discussing about some telco plans. He sign up for a YOUTH package and introduce it to me, saying the package really save a lot. So, I go check out the link he sent to me and one of the conditions to sign for the package is being a YOUTH! *Thunder struck* I realize in two weeks time (then) I won't be a YOUTH anymore! FML I will be officially be label as an ADULT in two freaking weeks time! FML......

Everyone wants to grow older quickly when they were a kid and when we were adults we either want to stay at certain age or be a kid again. Ironic isn't it? We humans are like this all the time, living in irony. Anyway, I am now officially label as an ADULT now. Having real responsibilities, commitments and blah blah blah.... A friend of mine told me this:"Once you start acting your age, you will be the age that you projected." Which is true, I am now the official age of an adult but I don't really act my age. Compare to my younger years, I used to like to hang out with mature and elder friends. Cos I really like the maturity of them that I'm getting and in a sense I can learn to be an adult. But for the last two years, my crowd of friends had extended to younger age or same age of people. I was then realize that I miss out few years of my proper age stuff. I miss out on YOUTH stuff! Damnit! But mostly I missed out FUN!

I used to be a very serious person. I take everything into my responsibility. My shoulders of stones are pretty heavy that I made myself carried. Times passed and I slowly learn to let go of things and take certain things lightly. I learn not to stress myself out and learn to have more fun, enjoy life more. I mean life's really short so should make out of it more than ever!

Btw, I didn't have a cake and blowing candles for my bday this year, so it makes me not growing an year older? *evil grin* I want to stay at this age forever can? Anyhow, I don't really act my age anyway, people who first meet me will always think that I'm few years younger than my age. Maybe is my looks that gives out the younger me LOL

For people out there that are still YOUTH, here's some stuff that you should do before you got expired!
1.) Sign on telco YOUTH package! - I can't FML
2.) When go traveling, you can stay at YOUTH hostels for way way cheaper prices! - I can't FML x 2

But then come to think of, who says being an adult can't have fun? Adults can do a lot of fun stuff LEGALLY!  : P

Suppress = Numb?

I'm sure everyone of you have suppress your feelings for certain things or certain feelings. Hoping it will go away after sometime. But have you ever wonder did that suppressed feeling really go away? or already become numb? When it's numb, you will only be immune to that certain feelings. When the same feelings you come across again, you won't be able to fully feel it again. I probably sound like I'm just jabbering stuff, but you get what I mean right?

Let's break it down to what most of you could relate to - love. Don't really care what are the situations but it will just end up you being forbidden from loving that person. What most of you do? Give up? Still hope that you could with be that person in the mere future(somehow, people will always like to hang on to forbidden love cos what you can't end up with will always seems to be the best)? Whatever the answer is, in the mean time, you do have to suppress your feelings for that person, right? And as time pass, the feelings you suppress will just being push behind you day by day. Probably, will end up having numb feelings. It's funny that our brain/heart could block up those hurtful feelings to protect ourselves from being hurt again. Somehow, you kinda forgot what really happen but having to be a person with a zombie heart. (Same page with me yet?)

 When you have numb feelings, you tend to miss out on the coming love which probably will happen in the future. But your brain/heart blocks you from it. You probably would be able to truly feel how great of the love that the future lover is giving to you, right? You probably will end up with a empty heart which is full of loneliness. So my question is does most of you experience such? Does suppressing your feelings will end up to numbness? Will you suppress too much or too deep that somehow one day you'll EXPLODE?

Been pretty stress lately, that's why such *useless/boring* thoughts go through my head. I'm suppressing my pressure for work. It's kinda hard cos I end up getting very jumpy and having hard time sleeping. Another thing is that, I've been suppressing the true person that I am. I don't know why but maybe I'm too concern on what people think of me. I think I'm starting to have those perfectionist sickness. *need help* Though, I'm starting to let lose myself bit by bit. I probably will shock some (sort of, cos known for quite some time already) new friends of who I really am. I feel the evil/rebellious side of me is getting lose. Is it a good thing? *Being emo now*

My Current Playlist

UPDATED: Can someone tell me how to edit the size of the video so that it won't just appear half of it here. I'm sry for the unpleasant viewing.

When I saw my current playlist is not songs from gadgets. It's actually songs in my head and erm...youtube. To be honest, I never own any music gadget. Not even a walkman during the dinosaurs decade! I always wanted one but either is too expensive or there's always other gadgets that slide my mind away from it. Of course, for now we have youtube! and the more tradition ones - radio. It really is a savior while you were driving and stuck in MASSIVE jam!!!!!! *hate that*

Anyway, my current fav songs that I have to listen to are these..... I don't know why but they just keep replaying in my head! I guess, I can entertain myself! *lame*



Lady Antebellum - Need You Now
OMFG! I totally fallen in ♥ with this song when the very first time I heard it from American Idol Season 9! It's just so so so addictive! Their live version is just as good as the normal version. This is what we call good vocals. No matter live or not live, your voice sounds the same or better then you are really good! I just like this song a lot! It just a bitter sweet song where you miss a person so much that you really want them in your arms like NOW! 





Will Young - Leave Right Now
Everything when someone from AI 9 leave and they will show videos of previous memories of the kick out, and there's this song which sound sooo good and even I don't really like the kick out, every time I'll get tear up! It just the perfect song for such sad ending. So it's obvious that this is a sad song *duh* I always wanted to know the title of the song and the singer but didn't get to know until they invited Will to sing at the finale of AI 9. The performance was just great! I teared up so much! *cry* and I finally get to know who.t.h sing this song! Btw, he's the winner of Pop Idol!





Christina Aguilera You Lost Me

Well, well, well... I can't say is this a come back album or not cos her first single - Not Myself Tonight was not very impressing for me. But her performance from AI 9 just blew my mind off! This song is really really really amazing! I think she's the only that could sing this song! Thought I think else bout her outfit for the performance. LOL This song just reminds me of how good of a singer that she is, she really is born with a beautiful voice but I don't know why she move to the WILD side of her which just so blah... 


Crystal Bowersox - Up To The Mountain

This song is really really emo for me and Crystal! She just sings her heart out in this song, so emotional! This song really suits her voice and her uniqueness a lot too. Don't think people sing songs like this anymore. *teary through out the whole song* I really hope she get this song recorded and put it in her album, I am SO! gonna buy it! Ok, I know, I know, the playlist is all from AI 9 but I didn't really want it to be like this, it just happened that all songs and artists did performance in AI 9. I didn't really watch much of AI except for season 1 and season 9. These are the seasons that I watched fully. When I say fully it means from audition to the finale. The other seasons I just skipped watch or just watch the finale. Coincidentally, this is the first season for Ellen to join in as judge and Simon's last season. It's like I watch the beginning and the end of AI. Well, it's not the end of AI but Simon is gone so I don't think it will be that good to watch cos I personally thinks Simon's critic or suggestions are really professional right. I do secretly like Simon LOL! I do think Crystal is a winner from day one already cos she's just so unique! I continually watch this season because of her, is just sad that she didn't win, but anyway, she 100% definitely get sign to publish an album! She SANG with Alanis Morissette!!!! How cool it is! *screaming my lungs out!*

 

Kina Grannis - World In Front Of Me

I got to know her from wongfuproductions which I will be talking about on my coming entry. Let's talk bout Kina first. She just look so sweet and her voice is sweet too. She does write her own songs. So please do support her. You can subscribe to her, here Check out her official single - Valentine The video is cute too and a lot of effort is put in it. Finally a happier song in my playlist?! wtf Am I that emo? I'm just sentimental? hahhaa... I don't think I need to say much about Kina's voice and this song cos you just get it instantly. It's a good morning song too if you know your day will be tough, so you can unFYL temporarily. 

 

David Choi - That Girl

 This is a song about a guy who gives up or force to not love the girl of his life. It's just a bitter bitter song and situation where you are in denial for loving a person or to suppress your feelings for a person. It kinda also like admirers where they can't voice out their feelings. Please stick to watch until the end of the video cos I think the ending is so freaking amazing! Love the video lotzzzz..... David is talented as well and I got to know this song from wongfuproductions too. 

~ END ~

★★★ Hope you guys enjoyed my playlist.

The Descent 2

 Tickets! (I know I know overdue post! but I was bz, sry!)

Yeah! I won! I won! I won! *faint* You might think that I maybe exaggerating and making a big deal about just winning a pair of tickets but IT IS! I never won contest for creative slogan. Is NEVER! *angry and wonder why* I mean these complete slogans competition, do you really think people win? How do they rate or choose from? How good is good? and how creative is creative? You have to define that right? Usually there's any contest that related to 'please complete the slogan with not more than 20 words' I will back out. I guess I know that I'm not that creative. But how can you be creative when you limit ppl with just the little amount of words?!!! ok la! I'm just back to square one where I'm not creative.

Let's not argue with that fact and proceed pls. It's one of the many Nuffnang movie contests and I won ONE of it! *pat my own back* *Happy* :D It's the premiere of The Descent 2 @ e-Curve. I always like to hang out at The Curve whether is shopping, eating, getting drunk, movies, it's really a comfortable hang out place to be.

Nice pavement right? while you dine or walk over to e-Curve

Another view from e-Curve

It was a hectic day for me, I almost can't make it to watch the movie but at the end of the day I manage to arrive safe and sound for a good movie. I had watch The Descent (part 1) few years back. In fact, I watch it more than once. I watch TWICE!!! You may think that I'm a brave person or a person who likes to watch scary ghost movies, guess again! You are WRONG!!! While watching the first time, I didn't expected it to be so freaking scary! It just give you the scare because it is based on real life situation. I mean, you really never know what you will discover if you were in a dark cave let alone being LOST! The movie just gave me the scare till my butt was stuck at the edge of my chair and pillow covering over my eyes! When the movie ended, I was so relieved. The second time, I was suppose to watch with my mom and I told her I already watched so it's fine, I knew which part to hide. Still it gave me the chills down to my spine. I had TWICE of nightmares for a few nights TWICE after watching TWICE of the movie! FML x3 

I thought the movie ended and stay ended but NO! they have to come out with a sequel.

 End of part one, where the only survive manage to escape

Even though part one of the movie already made me have nightmares but I was still tempted to watch it. You kinda lost your adrenaline once your life has gone routine and I want to know how can they top it up with part one. It is an interesting surreal movie and the ending of part one will just keeps you wonder. I never in a million years think that they will make a sequel cos in Msia it wasn't a much talk about movie and not much people watch or heard about it. I didn't know what's the rating then but it certainly not as high as blockbuster movies. I did ask around and 10 out of 2 only have watched part one of the movie before =.= Feel kinda sorry for the director, actresses and production team of the movie. They probably be FML'ing.

Btw, what's not better to watch scary movies while eating your popcorn?! You probably won't be eating much for this movie cos it's either there's scary moments or disgusting moments. If you still can enjoy, you are very good with sustaining these kind of situations. I always feel that somehow Cathay Cineplex's popcorn tastes better. Do you think so?

 Movie and popcorn time!

The Descent 2! (prepare to scream your heart out!)

In this part two of the movie is straight off continuing from the ending of part one. Where the survivor ran out for help. It's like watching those weekly drama series but only you wait longer(years), wtf! I don't want to be a spoiler cos the movie is very straight-forward. You will know what you are watching. There's really not much to say cos it's a scary movie, no point knowing where and when the scare is then you won't be afraid of it! I only can show you what is it be like while you are watching it.

She, Sarah (staring Shauna Macdonald) is the survivor of part 1 and hero

This will be one of the disgusting/disturbing creatures you will be seeing throughout the whole movie

This will be the way they going in/down the cave this time

This guy will be the b*stard of the movie

 This will be their battle looks, can you guess other than blood on their face, what else is on it? (Not mud)

Ok go watch the movie now! The movie has two very surprising characters (other than the creatures) and a very sickening twisted ending. I don't know are they planing to make part three but by the looks of it, it seems like there's part three coming....*faint* The sequel definitely could top up with part one of the movie. My heart was literally still pounding after watching it. I already had nightmares after watching it wtf!

dCim 2010


As you know dCim 2010 is going on at Midvalley Megamall's Exhibition Hall on 14th - 16th May 2010. I, of course went to have a peak on what they are having there. I just went for a day, but compare to some photography hot lovers, they tend to hang around the event for three whole days to get the best promotion for their gadgets.

My main purpose of going there is to check out a few cameras that I'm interested in and to check out is there any new cameras launching there. I arrived about evening and there's still a lot of people browsing around the event. Btw, just so you know there have a few booths at the ground floor for you to have a look too. There are Canon, Panasonic, Olympus and HTC. I saw a lot of aunties and uncles trying to purchase digital camera and the booths are feel with them. So, I didn't hang around there yet, I just went straight to the Exhibition Hall. I thought that the event will be quite big or happen or at least that's what I imagine but to my disappointment there wasn't much to see. Most of all there weren't as much brands opening their booth at the dCim. *wonders* There were just the very main and famous brands at the event. There are just the well known brands of Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Leica and some galleries and some accessories booths. Just all that, nothing much impressive.

For quite some time I'm having dilemmas on picking the best suitable semi-pro camera for myself. For budget wise slightly over RM 3k is fine for me. but of course when Canon launch their very affordable yet advance level range of DSLR the Canon EOS 550d, everyone wants a bite of it. My bro went with me to check it out too. He too wants to own it. Of course, you may say that a budget of mine like that could get this (Canon EOS 550d) already but I don't want to have a DSLR! Because...

1.) It's heavy!
2.) I'm not a pro user! I just need a non-pro camera to do a pro job.
3.) It's not convenient to bring it out for traveling and while you go for travel, you want to take good pictures too!

So, it doesn't leave me much choices. I mean semi-pro cameras are for noobs that just wanna act pro right? My choices were Panasonic Lumix GF1 and Olympus Pen E-PL1.


Look at the color! I feel in ♥ with it! Of course the price is my concern!

The Olympus Pen E-PL1 comes with Black, White, Silver and Champagne color.

I do really like both of it and the color choices are very attracting too. (I know, I know, gals tend to decide on buying an item buy choosing the pretties color, why not?! wtf!) You can check out their specs here and here. Both have very good reviews on them and both features are more or less the same with not much of a big difference. Both have their own good stuff that you can't get from the other. Honestly, I'm a Lumix lover and if I get the Olympus I feel very unfaithful towards Lumix! wtf! Most of all, there's been rumors going around that Lumix is planing to launch new gadgets too. *anticipated*  Arrgggg....!!!!! *pulling my hair* it's so hard to decide! If any of you have already own these two gadgets kindly please advise! All I can do now is wait.

OK! back to the dCim 2010. I found my new I mean it's every photographer's wet dreams and to own this baby as part of their collection! I'm here by to announce ~~~ LEICA! OK, it is surprising to find Leica booth in this dCim 2010 cos in Msia there's not much of dealers carries Leica cameras cos it's very expensive for just normal specs compare to other camera brands which have the same result but way cheaper. But it's LEICA! *bow bow bow* Without hesitation, the moment I found their booth, I quickly grab hold on what was had on display cos it was fill with people. I pick up the Lux -20, snaps some picture and totally *faint* and fell in love! It has become my main priority to own one when I get rich! *dreaming* There was a display of Leica M9, guess how much it is? IT'S RM 25 K +++ (OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!) but then the quality of just a Leica digital camera can be compare to Panasonic LX3. 

 The very expensive Leica M9! (not for trying too)
 
The design is just classic and simple, NICE!

Trying to pose it

Enough of my unrealistic dreams! Let's carry on. Canon and Nikon booth have certainly draw the most crowd. It's very thoughtful of Canon to have some cute and colorful display within their booth to let us try out their camera and of course both booths have display of their very bazooka lenses for us to play with too.

Canon's cute and colorful display of 'Bajak Hitam'.

This is Nikon's huge DSLR display, I think I should own one as my garden display (haahaa) *swt*

Panasonic Lumix booth

If you like underwater adventure, you should totally get this accessory to snap wonderful pic underwater.

 
Olympus booth at ground floor 
The gallery section was interesting, a lot of photographers' masterpieces were being display but too bad it really didn't draw much attention for the crowd compare to pretty models walking on stage modeling cameras. Well, most photographers are male so they do think with their adrenaline more than their mind. Canon has a EOS Buddy Club for Canon fans and photographer free lancers to join in. You can check out the details here and their facebook fan page. Apparently, they will help find business for you, get discounts for Canon items and stuff. I think is pretty cool of them. This way, you can extend your love for photography even more and well earning a few dollars more is no harm too.

Got to took a shoot of this model modeling a camera for the crowd

Drawing a lot of male crowds, crowds go blizzard taking photos of models adding to their collection

Bring on the bazookas!

Do you think this guy is 'seriously' asking questions from this pretty lady? (Well, I think so cos he look kinda pro)

I hope next year's dCim will bring in more brands and more cool stuff for us to see. Choices of accessories and gadgets are so much more overseas compare to here and please please please try to set the prices to more affordable prices so that poor people like me can own much more stuffs!

IP Man 2 & Ironman 2

Continuing my Summer Movies! I got to watched IP Man 2 on premier night thanks to a friend of mine to buy advance tickets. The hall was a big hall and it's FULL! So many supporters for the movie! Happy that I'm one of them :P My seats were quite alright it was not center but it's a right higher side seat, so it wasn't that bad. You should consider lucky if you could get ticket last minute.

IP Man 2  葉問2:宗師傳奇

Obviously, this movie is the sequel of Ip Man. (Duh!) If you haven't watched the 1st movie, please go watch it 1st then only watch the second movie. This time Ip Man (starring Donnie Yen) had moved to Hong Kong with his family and wanted to continue teaching Wing Chun there. He then had taken upon some students. One of his students and main student of his was Wong Leong who based on real life history, Wong Leong was Ip Man's best students in his life time of teaching Wing Chun. But very soon, Ip Man came across with Hung Chun-nam (starring Sammo Hung) and had conflict with him. There were few challenges for Ip Man to pass and to ensure he could open his martial school in Hong Kong and of course he didn't lose and had a draw fight with Hung Chun-nam. Being noble and humble as he is, Ip Man doesn't want to pay protection fees to Hung Chun-nam or have anything to do with Hung Chun-nam's organization. (You can just skip this part if you already had watch the movie) If you can recall, in the 1st movie Ip Man had to fight with Japanese and this time he had to fight with British because during that time Hong Kong was under the British colonial rule. It was a Chinese Martial Art Fight VS Boxing!

Donnie Yen had totally brought Ip Man's character to live and made him legendary, I mean, he is a legend but not until we watch this movie right? Just made us feel so proud to be Chinese. I think already had spoil this for people who haven't watch yet. Sorry.... So, I would like to share some stuff that you may not know(yet).

Somehow there's a rumor about Jay Chou playing the role of Bruce Lee in Ip Man 3. Hmm... I think Jay Chou would just stick back to singing than acting?! What do you think? Who is better in acting the role of Bruce Lee in Ip Man 3 as Ip Man's student? 
In KL, we have our very own Wing Chun Sifu, Yip Fook Choy who had broken stereotypes and had taken in Kahar Zaitun as his student long ago. Which is well said that Chinese Martial Arts doesn't mean to only learn by Chinese. Read here.
Here's another amazing Wing Chun student! I think if I've to face with him, I will already faint at 1st punch! *Ooch*


Watch him!

NOW! From Kung Fu Masters to more exciting advance Hero! IRONMAN 2!!! ♥Robert Downey Jr. ♥Scarlett Johansson, just ♥♥♥ them! *faint* 
 Ironman 2 

Robert Downey Jr.  ♥ so handsomely bad boy look ♥ 
Well, to clear up some bad reviews of this movies cos by now I'm sure most of you had already watch it, but for those who have not watch it yet, this movie is NOT bad at all! It's good as good as the previous Ironman! People who said that it's bad because they have high expectations and high anticipation for this movie. When people have such, they will tend to let their imaginations gone wild especially you have Scarlett Johansson (kidding) in it!
Sexy Scarlett Johansson ♥♥

Hot ! & Kick Ass !

I don't need to say much about the movie, just go watch it. In this sequel though, Pepper Potts (starring Gwyneth Paltrow) gave me a more unforgettable memory of her than the previous Ironman. She did a good job in this sequel really play out the character right and of course she's such a hot mama! and this Ivan Vanko (starring Mickey Rourke), the villain just kept me wondering who is he. He looks really really really familiar. After I Google about him I finally got the mystery solve! He's from WWF the boxing program! No wonder he looks sooooo familiar! He really suits this villain character. The part where he was bang by the car at the race track! DAMN! He's TOUGH! I wouldn't want to cross him in his path too!

For people who have NOT watch Ironman 2 yet or people who had already watch but don't know or miss out, please stay awhile more after the movie had ended and the credits had ended, there's a special sneak peak of the coming sequel. Nice! I just can't get enough of it!

Enough said, there are just too much more movie to watch yet so little time for me to go watch and review about it. FML These 2 movies sure have not disappointed me.

Summer Movies

Is the time of the year again, SUMMER! I love Summers! Its because Summer has all the big blockbuster movies. This year will be a great Summer Marathon for Movies! I started off with watching Ice Kacang Puppy Love and Kick Ass. OK, I know Ice Kacang Puppy Love can't consider as a blockbuster movie but is a local production and it's really good, so need to give some support also. I mean, Summer does has a feeling of L.O.V.E so it should be included in my this year's Summer Movies list.

 Ice Kacang Puppy Love 初恋红豆冰

This movie is shoot locally in Penang and is directed by AhNiu 阿牛 陈庆祥 which is his childhood memory of himself in Penang. AhNiu had some Mega Malaysian Superstars to participate in this movie. The Best Actress Award Winning Lee Xin Jie, famous Superstars Singers like Fish Leong, Gary Chaw, Victor Wong, Nicolas Teo, and Penny Tai. There is also the not forgotten superstar like Angela Chan Mei Ngor and Eric Moo. I was shocked and amazed when I saw them on screen.
The movie is based during the 80's in just a small town where everyone knows everyone. Where kids just have simple yet fun games to play with like playing just marbles and fighting fish and where adults hang out at Kopitiam and gossips and so on. It brings up a lot of childhood memories cos nowadays kids toys are PSP, hand phones, laptops and a lot of technology gadgets their parents could afford for them. Life is not as simple as it used to be anymore. As what the movie is named as, it includes a lot of L.O.V.E such as Puppy Love, Parental Love, Admirer Love and Friendship Love. I teared when I watch the ending. It's those kind of bitter sweet love story ending so, be sure to bring along your hankie. There is also some funny moments in the movie, be sure not to choke yourself. I won't mention about the synopsis of the movie cos you probably already know or had already search for it and I don't want to ruin the movie for you. You have to watch it yourself! 
Other than the mega cast of superstar, the movie is directed beautifully and perfectly with all the olden shop lots, houses and coffee shops and how the story was told is really really really beautiful, its a piece of art work. Thumbs up for AhNiu!  

 Kick Ass

Kick Ass is actually based on a comic book written by Mark Millar & John Romita Jr. It is directed by Matthew Vaughn who gave us StarDust in 2007.  It's definitely not a parody movie but the name of the movie does gave me such a though when I first heard it. With Nicolas Cage staring, it won't go wrong, that's one of the reasons I went to watch this movie.
The story is about a teenager that wants to be a hero but fail stupidly after he meet Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) and Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz). Hmm...I don't know why Big Daddy's costume looks like Batman, it's one of the funny part for me. Hit Girl is the one that kick the most ass! I'm very impress of her character and I like her purple wig costume.

Well, every comic needs to have at least one villein, in Kick Ass the main bad guy is Frank D'Amico (Mark Strong) who is a drug leader of a local crime and his son who later became Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). The movie is quite violent especially Hit Girl cos she's just a kid but she could kick ass and play with weapons! She is not your typical 11 year old girl who likes dolls and dress up. But I like her so much! *claps* Well, you'll know how the story goes. It does have a tiny bit feeling of Spiderman's plot, just a tiny bit. But it does have more action than Spiderman (not those kind of action), I meant REAL action, a lot of shooting, bombing and explosion kind of action. The ending of the movie is not predictable with of course a bit of twist that you may think there will be a Kick Ass Part 2. Overall, it is a good movie. 

Till then my next Summer Movie Marathon will be Ironman 2 and Ipman 2. Both very anticipated movies, just hope there will not be disappointment.

My NARS Affair

Ever sunk your hands on NARS before? The very first time I sunk my hands on it, I have an addiction for it. I remember it was when I went for my Hong Kong trip. I wanted to get myself a nude lip liner pencil and I wanted to try NARS because it's review is very good. I search high and low for it in Hong Kong and I come across Sephora and I know that Sephora do carry NARS. I pop into the shop, search for NARS and try on the color and fell in ♥ with it! I just took the lip liner pencil and just went straight to the cashier and pay. Talking about impulsive shopping... there was no thinking at all, just try, take and pay!

After using the lip liner pencil for sometime, I just can't stop thinking of purchasing or trying out other NARS products. I begin with my search. Reading reviews on top picks products that other people bought. Watch YouTube videos on people using NARS products. I was so obsess with IT~~~!!! Then, X'mas was coming. (I know is quite sometime now) I thought WTH, why not splurge myself some X'mas gift! *grinning evilly* As you should know, NARS is pricey but in the end it just worth every cents of your money. Trust me! So, I went online to choose the perfect X'mas gift for myself. Obviously there wasn't any NARS or Sephora in Malaysia and the nearest place I could get NARS is in HONG KONG!!!! Not even in Singapore! And so you think you can purchase it online, think again!!! NARS doesn't ship internationally!!!!! WTF to the max!!!!  Luckily, I found a guy online that helps helpless gals in such hopeless situation. I pick my orders and was also lucky enough to found NARS having 30% discount! Told you it worth your money! Of course, it does need my patients too. The orders need to wait about 3 weeks time. Everyday, I feel so excited that I finally could own and use more NARS products. Days gone by and every single day that comes closer to the date that my orders will arrive at my doorstep just make me feel so anxious and anticipated. There was a downside though, my purchases couldn't arrive in time for X'mas. I couldn't wear them for any X'mas celebrations. *bummer*

Finally! 3 weeks had gone and the postman arrive at my door and handed me my package. I teared off the envelop quickly and stare at the items I purchased. I'm not exaggerating but really, if you own NARS, you know that kind of feeling - at least for me it feels like that. 
NightFlight
 Loving the dark blue black shade with lots of blue glitters ♥♥♥
With flash, look at the glitter and they are very pigmented
I Want You Lip Gloss Coffret
♥♥♥ NARS NARS NARS ♥♥♥

From what you can see, I already done some damages to my wallet. Anyhow, every items are very very very worth it! I bought the lip glosses in a set cos there are all so pretty and I couldn't make up my mind to which I should buy. And I found this set and all of them are NARS signature lip glosses in 1 packaging and tell myself WTH! The eyeshadow is very glitter and pigmented. It is glittery in a way that only when light is shine on it, cos you wouldn't want to have a big patch of glitters in your eyes, right? I also ♥ how NARS names each of the products, very sexy, naughty and seductive. Make you feel like a sexy person inside. (I wish I am deep down but who's not?!) The lip glosses are named (from left) Turkish Delight, Striptease, Orgasm, Dolce Vita and Greek Holiday. There are all high-shine colored, smooth, long lasting and moisturize. I have not stop wearing them ever since I bought them that I almost forgot I have other brands of lip glosses to use.  ♥♥♥

Alicia's Birthday + StupidGang Gathering

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALICIA!

It's also yet another StupidGang gathering to celebrate Alicia's birthday (1 day before). It's just a simple yet happy StupidGang gathering. Although the place that we celebrate in is not any fancy restaurant or special food place but it's special for us because it's for Alicia. Guess where we went? I bet you can't guess it in a million years! It's at Food Garden@The Gardens.

I never eat at Food Garden before, just always pass by and eat at Sushi Zanmai just 2 shops next to it. Well, at first we wanted to eat at Sushi Zanmai but the queue is freaking long! I don't blame them though cos it was a weekend AND during dinner hours. Everyone is damn HUNGRY! So, we decided to skip the queue and go for Food Garden, which is not a lot of people and the food review for some stalls are not bad too from a few StupidGang members. It's not a lot of people so we could have our own sweet time to catch up and LOL so that we won't disturb other people around us. Believe me, we do scared people with our laughter. Of course, there's another reason too, we need to wait for Ken to show up cos he's work got off during dinner hour too. He's so 'Big Face' need bday gal to wait for his arrival :P

Everyone was hungry and some not very hungry but we still went to order our food before the 'Big Star' arrive. Surprisingly(to me), there are a lot of choices of food to chose from.

My Beef Ramen
 Bday Gal's Salmon Bento Set
BoBo's Saba Bento Set
 Fried Mee Hon Wok
Another Wok but is Fried Rice
Korean Kimchi Bento Set (Everything looks so spicy)
Look at the redness of the soup (but Phoebe say is not spicy) 
The most spicy dish - Kimchi! (It's really really really really really SPICY!!!! I can smell the spiciness without need of tasting it, it REALLY IS spicy!!!! *hot hot hot*)
  Ice Kacang for dessert but taste so so only

After almost finishing our food and Ken finally arrived. He took his dinner fast too and everyone starts to camwhore/taking pictures. Of course, we as usual, always have funny conversation and LOL till the tables around us looking at us thinking what were we talking about which is so funny. 
Me and bday gal! ♥
Ken and me trying to act cute (fail? haha...)
Alicia and Phoebe aka 'Mushroom head' for the day (but Phoebe you still look pretty)
Alicia & Coe
 Like Food Garden's design (give me a very comfy feeling)
Me + BoBo + Alicia
♥♥♥ StupidGang group pic! ♥♥♥
more of StupidGang's group pic ♥♥♥
Wendy and her hubby - the newly weds

Enough camwhore time, it's time to sing the Birthday song to the STAR of the day! "Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to Alicia, Happy Birthday to you~~~~~" *clap clap clap* 
Blueberry Apple Pie as Bday Cake with a candle without any light cos Ken quit smoking! Urrgg... this is when we need a lighter Ken! (OK, OK, OK! just joking Ken, is good that you quit! GOOD FOR YOU)
★★★★★  
BoBo was in charge to get spoons for us, this is what he got for us =.="
Then everyone has difficulty in eating the cake, it was fun though *wink*

For you people who do not know how the process of singing birthday song till cutting the cake ceremony is held, this is it!

1.) Pose for the camera holding your cake like it's in an ad.
2.) Pose some more
3.) Make a wish (I know you wish you want more $$$ right? LOL)
4.) Cut the cake. - FYI, there wasn't any knife available, so it's replace by using the back of the one and only big spoon we got
5.) End

★★★ Alicia, this is for you, I know the picture looks noob and ugly and cheesy made but I'll do better next time. :P Hope you had a great time with us! I know we had a great time with you! *Hugz and kisses*
