Dragon Babies


I LOVED 2009. The Year of the Earth Ox was hecka good to Dragons, mostly! My grades improved, my driving got loads better, I actually learnt how to cook (thanks Billie & Liyana!), finally got a camera and much more. The only awful part last year is that my English seems to have deteriorated somewhat. Wtfbananas. (SEE?!) But next year, I have no words to describe the bad fortunes that seem to be on every Feng Shui-yada-yada masters' predictions...

According to Singaporean Feng Shui Master Tan Khoon Yong (never heard of him):

The Dragon in 2010:
Surrounded by contingencies and making you feel helpless.
(Just what I needed... Less money... Urgh.)

On another 'helpful' site:
- Dragons may have very bad wealth opportunities this year. (Here we go again.)
- Dragons may have some study opportunities this year. (GREAT! I think.)

However, (is that a silver lining I see?) there are some good ones out there, thankfully... Such as:

1. Dragon people will be able to live a contented life through their will power in the coming Chinese Year. (Only through sheer will power will I be contented... Sounds excruciating.)

2. In 2010, Dragons are going to learn some new skills that will help them achieve many things in future. (Hah, isn't that what your 20s are for? Shaping you up for achievements in your 30s?)

Truth be told, I don't know why I even bother. Maybe it's because I'm slightly superstitious. In a skeptic har-har kind of way and I'm probably one of those kind of people who flip through several different horoscopes of the day and settle for the one I like the most.

At the end of the day, you make your own luck. Take it in your stride and should you ever get confused, here's a modern quote for all you answer-seekers:

When life gives you questions, Google has answers! (Though not necessarily good ones).


Nah, this one's better. Those old geezers really knew what they were talking about. =)

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

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…
