August Happenings

August 7th, 2010: Let it be known that on this day, Vanessa made her maiden trip to Shenanigan's, KK at the ripe age of 21. I'll be 22 in 21 more days, a minor detail... *sweeps away from mind* My delightful Auntie Nana, bless her merry soul, took me on a night out after the Sabah Rugby annual dinner (whyyy was I there?) at Pan Pac... Crappy camera pic below:


I would have to say that the highlight of the night was when my sis and I got seated with the La Salle secondary school rugby team and they were like, "Sooo, you're both from Konven?" *headslam* But it was fun being called Kakak (older sister) the whole night, puahahahhaha....

After that we went on to Rhumba at Le Meridien Hotel but boy, has it changed since I was last there. It used to be salsa and couples dancing but instead we got kids thumping to ear-splitting beats and dancing girls. So we moved on to Shenny's after an hour. Got introduced to a KK hiphop artist, Atama who's somehow related to me (no idea how but cool!).

Atama

Yesterday, I watched Avatar: The Last Airbender yesterday, which was awful, but I loved the fighting scenes only and the Earthbenders. Dev Patel and the Moon Princess (so pretty!) were my favourite characters there, the rest had some of the most awful dialogue and acting scenes, heaven forbid I should see another Twilight actor in another movie. Please keep M. Night Syamalan from doing anymore close-up shots during conversations. Some of us actually like to take in the sights and not stare directly into the Avatar's flaring nostrils. This movie is probably as bad as Dragonball. So so so wrong.

Disappointing.

On the other hand, everyone has been telling me to distraction about how awesome Inception is. Heard Salt was good too but I'm more drawn to the The Sorcerer's Apprentice. I'll try to blog properly next time when I have a proper Internet connection. One good thing about this dry spell of no phone and no Internet is that at least I still have KBSWorld and I can still watch I Am Sam (aka I'm Your Teacher) and Baker King, Kim Tak Gu (aka Bread Love and Dreams). Yoon Si Yoon is a major cutie! Have temporarily dropped the Taiwanese drama, P.S. Man, after dad made pointed remarks about the lead actor's cotton candy hair (it truly is NOT his look) and Coffee House (got bored).

Till better days! =D

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…
