January Quickie

It's that time of the month again! (Wait, not that kind.) The time where I can't be bothered to name my posts because they are chock-full of scattered ramblings and thoughts that are neither deep nor meaningful. Which kind of reminds me of a phone conversation I had with my sister recently...

Vadee: So what are you doing now?
Me: Watching my period dramas... (I was watching Sense & Sensibility)
Vadee: Why do you like watching period dramas so much?
Dad: *muttering in the background* Oh, I get it, she's having her monthlies again.
Vadee: HAHAHHAHAHAHHA! She means old costume dramas!
Me: *dies*

And that is why I refer to them simply as costume dramas now.

On to other news, I have finished my lab work for my final year project! Yippee! ^^ This means I can start writing my thesis now and not spend hours at the lab... This semester's kind of laid-back for me since I'm only taking 3 subjects this semester...&hearts (But all of them equally tough...) *nods head*

TV talk:

Flashforward was awesome! I finished all 10 episodes... Can't wait for more!!! The mystery, the unpredictability, JACK DAVENPORT... White people sure like Japan for some odd reason. Yuko Takeuchi (of jodramas, Queen of Lunchtime and Pride fame) was a nice surprise. They didn't cast an unknown this time unlike Heroes' Hiro. Creator David Goyer promises some massive reveals in March... (Yup, they moved up the date!) I have something to anticipate this year! =)

And The Private Lives of Pippa Lee deserves honorable mention too for making me sit through it continuously even though it should have been called Outrageous Pippa Lee's Mid-life Crisis (but then who would watch it?). Blake Lively played the part of a younger version of Pippa Lee and Keanu Reeves was in it, thank heavens for small blessings. I was starting to think it was irredeemable. I think it helped me understand my mother more though. In short, not a bad movie.

And since I am so behind in movie-watching, I have only just finished watching Star Trek (2009) today and it was the best thing ever (this week)!!! One word: SYLAR. I don't know if it was intentionally hilarious but I laughed a lot, it was so over-the-top geeky, Zachary Quinto, how do you keep a straight face? John Cho was in here too as Sulu! *fangirl* I love anything sci-fi except for the ones that are simply an excuse for blowing up gross-looking aliens (ANYTHING with Sigourney Weaver and Vin Diesel). The Star Wars saga is unbelievably good too but you could never make me watch the Star Trek series... (Young Patrick Stewart? @_@) Fingers crossed for Star Trek 2! (in June 2012 if the world doesn't end.)

So much for maturing this year.

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…
