Bad News

My mum called me earlier when I was sleeping. Apparently an uncle died and while I think it's nice she thinks I should know, sometimes I feel she has a morbid delight in telling me the details when people die. It's like she's pleased that they conked out. I will never understand this woman.

My uncle, R.S. died in Singapore following complications during an angioplasty procedure. His funeral will be later in KL. When a death happens to that family, it hits them really hard because my grandfather's side is rather expansive, theirs is much smaller with my grandfather's brother only having 3 kids and and an adopted auntie. Aunty E.'s lots of fun, she's married and divorced enough to fill one hand, nicknamed 'The Black Widow'. But now she's happily married to this really wonderful Uncle H. who I've always thought was really nice and adopted a son.

Anyway, I don't know why I'm jabbering on about this family, but they're always so interesting and really nice people, my side of the family is more homey and down-to-earth and I love that about both sides. It's a real pity this happened, he just turned 50 this year. There was a really big bash in January (which I couldn't attend coz I'm stuck here.) where all sorts of important family friends and bigwigs attended. It's the type of bash where girls can wear gowns! Anyway, that's besides the point, I will always remember him as a round jolly uncle, the life of a party! :-)

P.S. Off-topic but I found out that if I googled my favorite nick, 'vrosemarie', I can track my Internet progress since a few years ago! Mostly from comments at Korean entertainment websites... It's alarming coz I didn't know I'd left such an obvious trail.(-.-')

Funniest Malaysian Names!

I laughed out loud for 10 straight minutes reading this old post at Mr. Badak's website! If you must know, I was searching for the meaning of mulau (crazy in Kadazan) because I wasn't quite sure of the meaning (I'm a poor excuse for a Kadazan), and I stumbled across this. It's not even the post itself (about an unfortunate man named Mulau bin Burit) that was the absolute funniest, it was the commenters! Teachers and government workers come across the funniest names...

Imagine being named...

Lee Je Hoon to Belt Some Notes for Paparotti!

How cute is this piece of news? Everybody's favorite actor gone for military service, Lee Je Hoon, is acting as a gangster who wants to sing! Jang Ho (Lee Je Hoon) has a talented voice, but because of his poor family background, he became a gang member. Nevertheless, Jang Ho still likes to sing and desperately wants to become a singer. He enlists the help of Sang Jin (Han Suk Kyu) who used to be a well regarded performer in Italy, but is now a music teacher at a local high school in a small city. He's not the most passionate of teachers. Kang So Ra plays Sook Hee, a classmate who has a crush on Jang Ho. 
This movie is based on the true story of Kim Ho Joong, who first appeared on Korean TV Show, Star King, on July 18, 2009. During the program, Kim Ho Joong surprised people with his vocal abilities and also made people cry because of his back ground story. He grew up as a troubled kid who joined gangs, but because of his grandmother he began to sing in earnest. Stills and the …

Gawky Poses People Do Best Forgotten

Ever seen a pose that you thought looked terrible even though the person doing it is a mega hot fiiiiiine piece of...well, you get my drift. I'm sure if I asked a guy, they would have plenty of other suggestions but here are just three that occurred to me while typing out this post.

1. The Angry Chicken Pose

E.g. Sohee from the Wonder Girls (middle girl) - BTW their new album WONDER WORLD is out! Check it out! :)

I have never seen anyone pull this off and still look attractive. (Also known as The Stomach Ache or Pelvic Thrust)

2. Woman Draped on a Car Pose

No offense to auto babe ladies everywhere, but I can never find this not tacky. It must be difficult to twist yourself in a sultry pose on a heap of metal (something I, a mere mortal, can never hope to achieve) and I'm glad that at least you're being paid for it.

3. Cutesy Asian Poses

There's a whole multitude of these but I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the like. E.g. Peace Sign (I'm totally guilty of this…
