KL Is No Fun When You're Broke...

Meet Dome, Auntie Jakalyn's cat, which I adore for all its poofball-ess! I doubt that it returns my affection.
KL gives me a big headache especially on the roads where I seem to spend half of my waking hours. KL has a way of turning my mood sour sometimes.
But I do love it that I don't have to confound anyone with my embarrassingly awkward BM here.
Finally found Wifi at Starbucks in Jaya One. This place seems to be built in such a way as to puzzle noobs like me without a sense of direction.
Everywhere seemed to lead to a dead end, till finally, the first Starbucks I've seen in months!! :D
Read in a mag yesterday that people with sisters are more optimistic and ambititious people. Something to do with the stereotype of women having a knack for conversation. (Lies.) I have four sisters. Does this mean I'm super optimistic and chockful of ambition?! Still thinking about it. *uses blurface*
Works like a charm.

P/S: My sister, Sara here is in the middle of exams. And Chyna…

Open Water Scuba Diver's License at Bidong

At an event organized by Bidong Undersea Buddy (BUBU), I got to take my first Open Water Scuba Diver's License under SDI! I'm just really glad I got to experience diving for the first time!! It was really scary the first time I put on the scuba gear - it weighed a ton!! - and then fear started to sink in - hard. The first time underwater took some getting used to as you solely depend on the oxygen tank to breathe. I don't have an underwater camera, if I find any pics floating around FB, I'll post them up!!

There were two diving instructors, En. Nadzim and En. Baharim. I was under En. Nadzim and if you're wondering, he's this guy...

He was really patient with all of us and was so funny that it made class all the more enjoyable!! The Dive Master, En. Faizal, was really cool too, eventhough he told me I was a bit blur underwater and proceeded to call me 'Blur' for the rest of the diving lesson. Hahahahhaha.... But he seriously helped me a lot with my non-exi…

My 'Holidays' Thus Far...

Because this reminds me of Lucky... XD
Hey!! Had a long break because it's been so hot I've been having such sh!tty sleep these past few days. I finally had a beautiful night's sleep - might have had something to do with the heavy shower last night.

Downloading is pretty slow these days, I'm downloading lots of Korean movies! e.g.The Sword With No Name (set in olden times of Korea), Descendants of Hong Gil Dong (the drama was okay, the movie looks um... interesting), Kiss Me Kill Me (about a hitman, LOL-ed at the title). Bored of American TV shows ATM... Anything to pass the time before my scuba lessons next week...

I finished the 2009 k-movie Take-Off too which I kind of regretted watching. I won't even bother reviewing it properly, it was that crappy. It was about a motley crew of underdogs who represented Korea in ski-jumping at the Winter Olympics. I watched it because it did really well in Korean cinemas (should have known, the only things that perform well are p…

This Season's Kdramas

This season's k-dramas are so juicy I don't know where to begin!!! I'll start off with what I like the most and move downwards from there. All the dramas listed here are currently airing in Korea and I've only seen about 4 episodes of each so far... I think I have a thing for SBS dramas these days... :)

First of all, there's Prosecutor Princess [SBS] (my sisters were ROFL-ing at the title) but it's by far my favourite. The ladies are most importantly, likable from the Elle Woods clone, Ma Hye Ri to mousy little Jung Sun (who I can relate to). This was the drama I didn't bother with initially because I thought it looked too Lawyers of Korea or Partner (zzzZZZ). Anyway, it turns out I like it the most which might have something to do with the writer who did Shining Inheritance (one of my favourites!) or more likely the eye candy in this show! The eye candy I'm talking about is Park Shi Hoo (never heard of him but he's grand), Han Jung Soo (General Cho…

The Bieber Teen Sensation

WHOA. Where did the Bieber boy come from? I heard about someone called Justin Bieber on Perez and everywhere else online. My sisters also love and adore this boy and I had no idea why. He's just another Disney teeny-bopper right? Listening to Favourite Girl and Baby did not faze me.

Unbelievably, Justin Bieber started out as a Youtube star that eventually got signed to Usher's record company. His popularity has exploded over the last few months and it seemed like he came out of nowhere! Tasting fame at only 16 and standing barely a couple of inches over five feet, this boy's voice is still changing. I thought he'd be like the Jonas Brothers so I rolled my eyes and ignored anything that came my way about this boy.

What sparked my interest was when I wikied him one day out of exasperation and when I found out he started out in Youtube, I was intrigued (so he's not a Disney star?). Then I checked out his Baby video featuring the rap of Ludacris (he collaborates with gr…

Rock-climbing at 1U

Phew, I seem to have lost the urge to blog after exams are over. April looks like it's gonna be pretty quiet since I have to wait till my final year presentations (postponed again till 5-6 May) are over.

Anyway, pretty much the reason I'm blogging now is that I've finally recuperated enough after coming back from KL by bus! How tiring, my poor bones. I went over to KL with Natallee and stayed over in Melissa's house in Damansara, which was fun, her mum is a fantastic cook (mutton curry!) and her dad is such a nice person to talk to.

Tourists! Bah, humbug.
Went rock climbing in 1Utama which was a new experience, I've tried rock climbing in Outward Bound Sabah but that was a slab of cement (harder!), this was an artificial wall. The people working here were so friendly and helpful, I would love to be a member here if I could. It was only RM12 for rental of the harness and shoes because a member can bring along 2 guests.

Figuring out how to tie the 'ropes of life'…

Of Monkeys and Boneheads...

Bickering with housemates is like a way of life with me in Uni. Most of the time, they all gang up against me to bring me down. It's all in good fun...I think. Well this is how one of those times went.

Me Dexter

Dexter:*pokes at my himono-onna bun* What's with your hair?

Me: Huh?

Dexter: You can keep a monkey in that.

Me: Hmph. You have a big tummy.

Dexter: Yeah. *looks down*

Me: You can keep a monkey in that.

*Eva snickering in the background*

HAH!!! One of the rare moments I one-upped a housemate! BTW, the monkey is a Crayon Shin Chan joke (Dexter, 2010). I KNOW, I didn't get it either.

Double Take: Zack and Cody

Anyone who has ever watched Disney in high school or re-runs of The Suite Life would probably recognize these guys... Well, their younger selves anyway! :D

Me thinks I've been away from the Disney sphere too long or grew up or something because I totally didn't notice that the Sprouse brothers are all grown up!!! They're 92-ers, so I'm like a noona to them... Anyway, hope I'll be seeing both of them soon on the big or small screen, it's just so weird though because I still think of them as the cute kids living The Suite Life, up to mischief as usual!

Dylan's the taller one... Or it could be the other way around. I'm confused.
To quote Dylan in a brief interview with La Coacha, "I grew up a lot since you've last seen me but guess what, I have more hair in different places!" Riiight...

WEIRD. I have this theory that Kuala Terengganu is like a secret time warp that sucks the years from you. If I turn my back on them for a sec, they'll probabl…
