My One Week in KL: Buys & Finds

Hey hey! Just back from KL... I'm sort of relieved to be able to resume my online life (geek alert!) even though I'd love to shop and browse some more in KL... Cotton On seems to be the 'in' store in KL now to students or people with a limited budget. I didn't know this Australian brand was so cheap but it is. Cheaper than Giordano and about the same price as PDI. Everything there seems to be made for warmer climes and caters to Australia's current fashion trends - lotsa tights and high-waisted skirts. Bought some things here and Isetan.

Topshop and Zara were equally lovely too with the prices to match. I need these places to be on sale before I will even consider buying anything from there. I also couldn't pass by Etude House without buying something from there (Park Shin Hye and Jang Geun Suk used to endorse this brand!). Heard a lot of good reviews about their BB cream but I doubt it would fit my skin tone. So I made do with this!!!

Nail polish.Lol.

Met up with my good friend Vivian in KL too and had lunch at Pasta Zanmai in MidValley (not halal sadly) but I loved their fusion food! (Though the unagi pizza was quite a stretch even for me). Sweet!

I also finally found a copy of Elizabeth Gaskell's North & South at Borders Bookstore! At last!! *happiness* If any of you have read my past review of the BBC miniseries North and South here, you'd understand my joy. &hearts Reading e-books just ain't the same as holding genuine bound pages in your hand, tucked up in your favourite cosy reading corner.

The moment I reached KT, I got fleeced by the teksi sapu man at the MPKT bus station. RM25? Are you effin' kidding me? Then I knocked out for 6 hours at my house (hate buses, can hardly sleep in 'em) and my rumbling tummy led me to Giant, where I got mildly sidetracked at the DVD store and walked away with these...

Crows Zero 1+2 (Modern classics!) and Tokyo Sonata! (I bought the latter because Yankee-kun to Megane-chan's Chiba stars in it. Real name: Koyanagi Yu) These are the latest additions to my K-movie and J-movie stash. Ah, Vanessa, will you ever outgrow these? I still prefer buying CDs and DVDs to downloading (but I still do) in case my hard drive goes KAPOOF like last time.

My back was giving me hell in KL for some unknown reason. I HAVE AGED.

Till later days!

P.S. Brazil vs. Portugal tonight!!! Might have to resort to staring at the orange gigolo tonight since Kaka got red-carded.

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…
