My Poor Ol' Creaking Bones

Korean music video of the day:

I just had one of the best holidays ever! I've never felt so pampered in my life! Lol, haha... Exaggeration, but I really did enjoy myself. In the space of 5 days, (4 if you will, minus the 8 hour bus rides), I covered Sungei Wang, Times Square, Midvalley, KLCC and Sunway. I'm still suffering from the after-effects of ice-skating, my muscles have been aching away since two days ago. Auntie and uncle were really interesting people and the kids are so precocious. And I got to see Sara! (who always worries me with all the shenanigans she gets up to...) Not to mention, I met up with LAVEE after a YEAR! :)

(Sara's awful at taking pictures...)

My 2 roomies, Eva and Shu, still aren't back yet so I'm alone but it's cool coz I get to roll around their bed and play my odd music! It's rather quiet in the house though. But I will persevere! Dex and Jack are having a barbecue at my Taman Sejati house tomorrow night so there'll be lots of people underfoot and I will probably vanish away into my room due to my slight aversion to crowds. (*chomping on mooncake* Yum! Can't help it, I love mooncake season!)

Anyway, with one literature review and a lab report to finish up, I better get my butt moving and then work on my proposal...if I want to have any chance of going back in the Nov-Dec holidays... *sigh* On another note, the archbishop is coming next week! Awesome possum.

&hearts, Vanessa

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...
Alias bin Mati
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…
