Flashforward continued...

I was so occupied these last few days that I have only just realized that Flashforward started again last week with a two hour premiere! I sort of wish they never stopped because I was a bit confused with their situation, not having watched the show for two months. Timbaland had a cameo at the ending of Episode 3: Blowback as an officer in charge of storage. Lol, I wonder if he was bored or something with producing.

Anyway, I realized I skipped to Episode 13 without watching the premiere (no wonder I was so confused! This episode was really dreary and Aaron (Tracy's dad) suddenly got possessed by the dad from hostage thriller movie 'Taken' (2008) and went Rambo on Jericho operatives. I am getting tired frankly, from the really slow character development. Janis (Christine Woods) and Bryce (Zachary Knighton) are my favorites on the show but they hardly get any screen time in Ep 13. I really hope they step it up soon because I hate to see a great story go to waste. Sometimes a…

Music Break: SoulJa (Japanese)

Okay, okay, I lied. Here I am blogging again. But I'll try to keep it short and sweet... This time it's about one of my favorite Japanese rappers whose songs I can never get enough of!!! SoulJa is half Belgian and half Japanese and he has this awesome side profile (so misleading, he looks like a hottie from the side) but it's his rap that I adore so it's not important. *beams*

His most popular song is Kokoniiruyo (ここにいるよ) ft. Thelma Aoyama (also half Japanese) and the song's gained so much popularity in recent years. The song's about long distance relationships. I stumbled on the song accidentally in 2008 and loved it to pieces!! Thelma's answer song, Soba Iru Ne (そばにいるね) ft. Soulja is also worth a listen (it was even more popular in Japan than Kokoniiruyo and featured in many advertisements). They both were virtually unknown to international audiences before these singles came out.

March Quickie!

Last post of the month!

I am trying to keep to a strict schedule before my FYP final draft deadline and exams so no laying about. But I'll be as free as a bird after April the 4th! I've noticed my recent blog posts seem to be personal entries because this month has really drained me of my resources: time, energy and money. I also have to think about what comes after exams... And BTW, my lappy problems are over and done with, with no hard feelings... :-)

For all you people taking exams soon, don't forget the most important thing!

Seriously, without it you won't be able to think clearly. (I once wrote 'Harry Potter' once in an essay about water quality which was so off-topic and I had to Blanko it so my lecturer wouldn't see it and think I was crazy.) I learnt my lesson and from then on, I slept enough hours the night before the exam. Drink enough water too, being thirsty disturbs your concentration.

I am inordinately fond of this song. But th…

Reformatting Hell

ARGGHHH!!! This is like the WORST thing to happen EVER! After sulking and updating my software for days, I've finally come to terms with losing my TV shows and movie stash. Though I find it very hard to forgive the two people who erased my (D:) drive which contained all my movie stuff. I'm sure I will...someday, maybe next week, but currently I am still a bit bitter from losing my most treasured TV stash. (I used the HP Recovery disks to get it back to howdy-dowdy again.)

Here's the lowdown on what I lost:
3 seasons of Chuck (Update: Recovered this from Shu!!!)
3 seasons of Gossip Girl
Vampire Diaries
Glee Season 1 (Update: Eva has the whole thing!!!)
Flashforward Season 1
True Blood Season 2
You Are Beautiful (Kdrama)
Smile You (Kdrama)
Team Medical Dragon Season 1 (Shu has this too!!!)
Gokusen Season 3
All my BBC miniseries (Persuasion, North and South, Anne of Green Gables, Sense and Sensibility, Emma)

Most of which I downloaded myself, which means hardly anyone has copies of them. …

FICOS Dinner 2010!!!

Believe it or not, FICOS stand for something like Fisheries Club of Organized Studies... I may be wrong but what is Organized Studies supposed to mean? Some studies are unorganized? @_@

Enlighten me.

But then again, who am I to question the decisions of seniors before me? Even if they do puzzle one so.

Bachelor of Applied Science (Fishery) Class of 2010 - Missing some people...
Yay!! It happened!! The reason for my joy is because last year's dinner was cancelled due to a disagreement between my seniors and juniors over the venue... *scratches head* Anyway, my 2nd year at UMT pretty much stank. Not everyone attended the dinner because we seniors, are supposed to be really busy this week. But tell me, how often do you get to dress up to the nines in KT?

Yesterday the dinner was awesome! It was at Grand Continental, Kuala Terengganu again and the buffet wasn't all bad, I liked the food, though the vege looked half dead, the pudding was sh*t and bean soup is the bane of my life. But th…

Grim and Trying Times...

It's crunch time again.
I feel like I'm being pulled in many different directions at once and it would be great if I knew how to split myself up so my other selves could just take over.
So sick of presentations.
So sick of people who judge based on appearances.
So sick of self-centered people.
So sick of those who never listen.
A certain subject is being a b- again and it stinks when all the dirty work is pushed to you. FTS.

I think I just need some sleep. :-(


Dresses to Drool Over

I'm no fashion expert but now and then I see really GAWJUSSS dresses on the red carpet and I know not what to do except wish I was blond and fair so I could even look a quarter as amazing as these actresses...

Rachel McAdams and Cameron Diaz
Can you say Oscar's? One of my favourite times of the year! Next to the Grammy and Emmy Awards... Rachel McAdams' colouring goes so well with her watercolor dress and Cameron's looking less like a train wreck this year... I AM SO MEAN. Her golden dress is very pretty but I'm not so sure I like her hair... Do blondes look good in everything?! Sheesh. *throws hands up in frustration*

Kristen Stewart and Abbie Cornish
Above are the darker dresses I rather liked as seen on Kristen Stewart (who looks like she feels good about herself today! Pat yourself on the back because you should!) and Abbie Cornish who looks the best I've seen her in...ever. I thought all four of these ladies owned the carpet at Oscar's. Elizabeth Banks loo…

Are you a Himono-onna?

Anyone who's ever watched the jdorama, Hotaru No Hikari (Lights of Fireflies) would probably know that this term means Dried-fish Woman. In the drama, himono-onna (干物女) means a woman who has stopped loving anyone in her twenties, thus she is a 'dried woman'. She rolls around the house in tracksuits and grubby tied-up hair and guzzles beer after a long day at work.

Is that a person under there? @_@
THE PLOT: In Hotaru No Hikari, Dramawiki tells me that the main character, Hotaru (Ayase Haruka) works for a famous interior design company. It's a glamorous job but Hotaru's private life is totally the opposite of glamorous. She lives alone, and when she isn't working she's mostly lazing about her rented house in track bottoms. She's not interested in men. In fact, she isn't interested in anything. "I'd rather lay around than fool around!," is her motto.

Observe! TOP: At work; BOTTOM: At home.
Her landlord is a bar owner, and one day his son, …

One Chance to Keep from Falling...

I love this song.
It featured in Episode 11 of Vampire Diaries (Bloodlines) when Damon killed Bree.
The song aptly describes someone who has disappointed me today.

Alex Band is still as skinny as ever, isn't he? I loooove his voice but he looked so funny in this video, I had to laugh quite a few times!! (I wonder if he was forced into it?) Kind of reminiscent of songs from the earlier part of the decade. I wish the video wasn't so generic, because this song is beautiful.

Thought of the Day: I hate feeling like a failure more than anything in the world.


I feel better already. :)

Hostel Living

EDIT:Oops, accidentally published an unfinished post! Lulz. Might take some time to finish. Rome was not built in a day. FINISHED!

I was just flippin' thru my first year pictures in uni... Which was pretty awesome but it feels like it was eons ago. In first year, being juniors, we all stayed at the hostels, and mine was in the Ibnu Majah block and we (my roomies) considered ourselves lucky because we got the room facing the boys' hostel! Hello, Dolly!!!

Ah, first year. The year when Jack hung out a lot with my bunch of friends and the grand opening of Giant and Secret Recipe in Terengganu, where we could do demented things with our food, like this:

Then we had our very own Yoyo outside with juice and nata de coco, cybers aplenty and lots of food and drinks. Yes, living at the UMT hostel does have its perks. The path we took to the campus by the sea was dubbed 'Jalan Biawak' for its delightful inhabitants: giant monitor lizards. Nope, no pictures. I was too busy running aw…

Don't You Go Burstin' My Bubble!

Just re-watched Bubble Boy...
An utter CLASSIC!!!
They just don't make a lot of kooky-fun movies anymore... (Instead, you get all these campy, body-baring movies that is sneakily inserted in most genres these days, which is seriously alarming. Dude. My eyes.) There are Tim Burton's films, of course, but those are more to the creepy-kooky side. And as interesting as his films are, I'd be hard-pressed to pick out a favourite.

Bubble Boy is one of the absolutely silliest movies I'm fond of watching over and over again. :D
And it's probably the only film I like with Jake Gyllenhaal in it (complete with crazy hair and dorky laugh). Although that could change with the premiere of the Prince of Persia movie! Trying not to keep hopes up so I won't get disappointed...

There's a lot to be said about weird people in this film and it hilarious how no one is ever normal in this film! Not one single person!
Dr Freak and the Freaks!
Pushpop the Hindu ice-cream man!
The spookily p…

March and Still Kickin'

I just came back from Kelantan a day ago, for a very short trip to Jeli, Kelantan for my Business Basics project. Gosh, Kelantan people are so funny. Friendly, but funny... Taking pictures in Jeli was hilarious, the people in the large trucks and cranes on a nearby construction site kept waving and honking non-stop! (I thought they were really pissed at someone at first... XD)

The people at the Pejabat Pertanian Jajahan Jeli place were really helpful. When I first walked in the Jabatan Pertanian headquarters, I felt like I was back in Likas Fisheries Research Center again. Like WOAH, dejavu. I guess government buildings built long ago were made pretty similarly... Anyway, Tuan Haji Sabri, the hydroponics expert of Kelantan was really helpful and knew everything there was to know about hydroponics. Thank you, kind person!!! (middle person in the pic below)

I've never blogged about food before, so here goes... No pictures of delicious food however, it was gone before I kne…
