Inter-campus Gathering 2009 at Johor

Go, Dark Blue, go!!!

I just came back yesterday at 1 am and I had a fever and a cold when I came back (froze my ass off in the bus). But I enjoyed myself thoroughly at the ICG '09 for Catholic students studying in the peninsular! Woot~ I got to meet old and new friends. *sigh* Being my usual unsociable self, meeting old friends is always weird because we haven't seen each other for so long that it's awkward. (Spotted! Old SFC schoolmates: Brenda Chong, Jacqueline J. & Sandy!)

UMT-INSTEP peeps... :)

Anyway, we had group workshops (I was in the Dark Blue group), Project Runway, Fellowship Night and the usual praise and worship (Kudos to the awesome home-grown Christian band Prodigal Apostles!!! They really know how to rock the stage!!) The speakers were really interesting too, as diverse as they were - an NGO, a TV producer from MediaCorp, a research officer for the Selangor CM, a corporate worker and a singer (Juwita Suwito!&hearts) Some topics I never imagined at a church camp: Media? Politics? Racism? wtf

My debut as an 'aktres buruk'!

(I am in no way responsible for the name 'Yoyo' or the editing of this video)

The theme was O.R.A.I.T - an acronym for Our Religion As the 'In Thing'... The Penang Coordinating Committee (PCC) were totally pumped with yells of P.C.C.! AUMMM! The Malacca-Johore diocese were the organizers for this event held every 2 years (will I get to attend the next one?) and the turn-out this tme round was 537 students from Perlis to Johor... The KL Diocese will be the next hosts of this event! ^^

The UMT party together with the Institut Teknologi Petronas (INSTEP) boys set off together to Johor on the 18th (it took a whopping 9 hours to get there!) and we picked up Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) students on the way who were a really funny bunch...especially Jenit and Wednna who keep telling me to join Unduk Ngadau (I who am not worthy enough... *bows*). :)

Farewell UMP!

More detail on the workshops and speakers later because I'm still feeling too sick to elaborate more and I write ever so much better when I'm in tiptop shape. My facebook has never received so many friend requests in one day, all thanks to ICG...

Cheers to new acquaintances! *\(^-^)/*

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...)
Penus (Oh dear.)
Labiah binti Kondong
Ignor Ingor
Blueberi anak Dewberi (This made me laugh the hardest!)

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…
