Cartoons from the 90s!!

I can't really remember everything I used to watch in primary school, I just knew I really liked reading Nancy Drew books, Harry Potter, the Narnia chronicles, etc. Books were my world back then, when real life felt like the pits and the places in books seemed like a hell of a better place. I was an extremely awkward and shy child. I may still suffer the after-effects of my tormented childhood, which explains A LOT.


Anyway, I watched loads of Scooby Doo, Johnny Bravo , Cow and Chicken (*_*), I Am Weasel (I R Baboon! and the Pantless Devil), Rocko's Modern Life, Rugrats, Mummies Alive, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Recess, Hey Arnold (Helga Pataki-that unforgettable unibrow), Sonic the Hedgehog and other random stuff back then. The 90s was a great decade to be a kid. :-)

Recognize any of these lines?
1) Move it, football head!!
2) "...blows his experiments, to smithereens..." (lyrics)
3) "...Dad was proud, he didn't know how." (lyrics)
4) Police! There's a handsome man in my mirror! Wait, it's just me.
5) *mumbles and whines urgently at the latest dastardly weird thing approaching*
That's all I got for ya. My memory fails meeee...

Recently, I was reminded of the cartoon As Told By Ginger. I never forgot the lyrics and listening to it now, the lyrics seem to shine a different light now that I'm more 'mature'. (I AM AN OLD RAMBLING CRONE.)



Back then, it was all about being stuck between adolescence and adulthood. The younger me would interpret this song as, "We all want to GROW UP quickly! But we should be happy being a kid. Coz we rock." Now, I see that it applies no matter how old you are, people may say wonderful things about things we haven't done, places we haven't been, but it all boils down to whether you feel happy and content wherever you are.

I tend to over-analyze things too much (a habit instilled by my English Literature teacher in high school. I miss uuu, Puan Alia!)

Back to present day, where my youngest sister is completely uninterested or may not even recognize the cartoons I used to watch! These days, Hannah Montana *wince*, Danny Phantom and Ben 10 reign supremacy.

But then again she's more of an otaku really. Don't get me started on the anime I used to watch. Saiyuki all the way, baby! That stuff to me is LEGEND-NEVER-TO-BE-TOPPED. Everrr.

*goes back to doing nerdy things*

P/S: Course I watched Asian stuff too like Doraemon and Akazukin Cha Cha (major lolz!). Oh, but never did I stoop to this.

KELUANG MAN: Ambik kau, Lat Kampung Boy!

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…
