A Perky Thanksgiving

4As 1B in her UPSR!!! Congratulations, baby!

You know what? I enjoy making lists. Some of them end up forgotten like my End-of-year Resolutions (conveniently more like it) or my To-do List (more often that not). And since I'm feelin' so darn blessed recently, here's my list of all things I'm grateful for this year:

01) A loving family and good friends (I miss you all!!)
02) My adorable pets (Patches+Lucky+Paddy+Coco)
03) Unexpected encounters and new friends... :)
04) The holiday season!! (Oh no, Kristen's infected me!!!)
05) The invention of TV! Thank you, John Logie Baird!
06) South Koreans, how I love thee!
07) An internship that wasn't so bad after all! =)
08) CW TV shows
09) Lovely songs that get to me
10) Yogurt cheese cakes!
11) Kindness when you least expect it~
12) Going out to sea! I love it!! (Corals still freak me out though...)
13) Facebook (though I've been at it since last year..)
14) Just being 21!
15) WEEKENDS! (Best thing EVER)
16) My phunky fingernail that grew back normal-coloured
17) The resurrection of this blog! (I wonder if I can keep this up...)
18) The good Catholic parishioners of Terengganu! =)
19) That I do not live in Terengganu (haha...)
20) My 2GB RAM and additional internal hard disk (Now I can keep more crap!)
21) The good lecturers of semester 5!

and more...

I can go on and on but the rest would be a little too much information, lol. Obviously, I'm trying to encourage myself to think positive! (Which hasn't been happening a lot lately due to FYP stress) Thinking happy thoughts releases feel-good hormones that make you look more younger and good-looking! =) It's true, I read it somewhere and it's proven. :-P So wipe off those frowns of your faces because you'll just be miserable and ugly at the end of the day! XD I'm not going to argue on that point but I think we should all count our blessings and make each day count!

Currently listening to:


For an instant pick-me-up! &hearts this album!

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

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…
