August Quickie? Slash that.

K-drama: Shining Inheritance (SBS)

Previously, I've blogged about trying to decide which K-drama to watch (it was between City Hall and Shining Inheritance) and I watched a bit of both.

THE RESULT: I'm totally hooked on Shining Inheritance/Brilliant Legacy (Korean dramas and their multiple titles...)!!! I'm on episode 7 now and I'm bravely trying to ravage a couple more episodes before I finally admit that the weekend has finally ended and turn in for the night. It's not that City Hall is bad in any way, it's just that Shining Inheritance is more gripping (dang, those cliffhangers) and I love seeing their outfits, bags etc. Pretty~

At first glimpse, it seems to be your standard fare, evil stepmother, a vague hint of disease *shock* *horror*, convoluted family relationships, the ultra sweet guy who will never get the girl...but something about it just reeled me in. Apparently South Korea agreed with me because it had massive ratings when it aired from April to July this year. Just in case it isn't overly apparent to you, I am a HUGE fan of Korean entertainment... *loser*).

Onto my delicate health issues: I'm still feeling under the weather, but not feverish anymore but I have a sneaking suspicion that I'm about to lose my voice, which makes for happy miming. I cleaned my room top to bottom today just to break into sweat (it makes slight fever heal faster or so me thinks, I almost expired from the attempt) and I've never been prouder of myself. ^^

Owh and I'm very probably going to the Inter Campus Gathering 2009 in Johor for Catholic students. I wasn't really sure about going but a couple of people said I should, it's my last year anyway. I'll just have to suck it up and dust off my cobwebby social skills (did I ever mention I dislike crowds?). But it should be fun, will update on that! &hearts

Blogging stuff: I've decided to limit my really short posts (quickies) to say, once a month maybe? If I can hold my word to it. Edit: Guess I can't consider this post a quickie anymore.

There's always next time. :)

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...

Injin A/L Bot (changed his name already...)

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…
