Scribbles From An Almost-hermit

Not that kind of hermit, fooool!!

To end the wonderful month of May, which has been rather uneventful compared to April (April was awesome), comes this last post here. I'm hoping June will be more interesting! Nothing seems blog-worthy these days or inspiring in any way. Maybe it's because I'm still new at this being independent thing and I'm rapidly turning into a reclusive hermit who grunts at people who call out of the blue.

Hopefully, that will all change next month. I must make the effort to change and for this I need to summon all my positive energy and channel it into job applications. Haha.

Sitting on a chair from 9-5 is making me flabby. I need to get some exercise, flab on a slim person looks unsightly. Time for some movin'! (Only my sisters will understand the hilarity of this statement.)

Anyway, Mika's We Are Golden has just replaced Lee Hyori's How Did We Get (ft. Dae Sung) as my fave ringtone! I like its early shock factor and perky sounding tune (for lack of better words). &hearts Mika! I also love that he penned the song Gave It All Away by Boyzone earlier this year, which was overshadowed by Stephen Gately's untimely demise.

My housemate likes to call all the music I listen to, gay. Cobra Starship - half-gay. Mika - gay. Katy Perry - gay. Owl City - gay. +_+

I don't give a fig in hell because all the music this person likes to listen to are "getting jiggy with it" songs, with chicks dancing in a club/beach/cruiseship, whatever. And praise and worship songs. Not that I think they're bad, but most of them are...repetitive? And sound the same.

My own father has joined the legion of people who think I look like Giuliana Rancic. He says we even act the same way!! Whhuttt??? So if he misses his big girl, all he has to do is switch to E! News. The funniest thing I've ever heard. Why?

Number 1: She has an orange tan.
Number 2: She is super skinny and super toned.
Number 3: Personality-wise, I'm not nearly as bold as her.
Number 4: I did not surgically enhance my breasts.
Number 5: I do not have a hot husband named Bill.

TTFN! Because I am only 6.

Hey Van,

You'll probably kill me for this but now that you mentioned it, I would agree with your dad. You DO look like Guiliana Rancic!!! LOL. You look different now from what I remember of you agessss ago. Time flies.

Yes, you do look like her, minus the hair colour. Haha...

It's a good thing. You've changed so much in the past few years. Looking prettier these days! ;)

You take care too! =)

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…
