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. And all my movies!! I almost freaked out when my favorite chick flicks were gone and I had a mental breakdown for a while there. I made very depressing company for a few days. *sniff* (UPDATE: Thank heavens for friends with external hard drives...)

Let's look at the bright side shall we? The 'advantages' are:

1) Less clutter. (I can rearrange everything just the way I like it!)
2) Everything is back to default settings (I only had Recycle Bin at first!)
3) At least the damn laptop can start (and no forking out huge sums of money to get a new one).
4) Everything's faster. Big whoop.
5) It's an old laptop anyway, about 5 years old and Coco (my puppy) dragged it on the floor once and nearly peed on it. So judging that it crashed for the first time last week, I think that's a pretty good running history.

Overall, I guess I should thank my lucky stars I backed-up my thesis but somehow I can't bring myself to give a fig about it now. :-(

Somewhere out there in cyberspace, the people against Internet piracy are cackling in glee and concocting more ways to bring down people who fileshare.

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…
