Proposal Daisakusen goes Korean!

Ooh, I can't wait till February!!

I was pretty obsessed with this drama back in university!! (many thanks to my roomie, Eva, for burning the drama into DVDs for me.) No posters are out yet except for a bit of casting news. Park Eun Bin and Yoo Seung Ho are supposed to be headlining this drama which is a reunion of sorts since they were previously in The Legend (태왕사신기) together. Still trying to wrap my head around the fact that Yoo Seung Ho will be the lead. 0_0



Anyway, back in those days (here we go), I was head over heels for Yamapi (Tomohisa Yamashita of Jpop boyband NEWS) and watched everything he was in but I had to stop after seeing his cotton ball hair in Code Blue and pink-lined basketball uniform in Buzzer Beat. I even watched Kurosagi for him!

Ah, the things we do for love. *delusional*

I have had this song in my phone's playlist since 2008! *swoon*

Mongol 800 - Chiisana Koi no Uta (Proposal Daisakusen OST)


P/S: For some reason I can't embed any video that isn't…

GAH

What is with every other website affiliated with Google changing their interfaces (Youtube, Blogger etc)? It looks dull and I suppose, more mobile-friendly. But I hate learning where everything is again when I was perfectly comfortable before. Anyway, enough about that.

As pretty as I think the Facebook Timeline is, I hope they get around to editing their privacy settings SOON. Not only do I, myself, not want to see what a hare-brained twit I was years ago, neither should other people. And it's pretty tedious to remove every single post manually from 2007. Grrr....


Inspire me...

Three Week Roundup!

I've been neglecting my blog completely these past three weeks. But the past three weeks have not only been busy but uninspiring and miserable for me. Maybe it's the lack of sleep, female maladies or the fact that my bedcovers make me itch but I have been in a terrible mood recently and only these last few days have my spirits started to lift... And I'm terribly sorry to all the people I inflicted my non-existent good humor to recently.

And that usually means bloggy time! :D

These past three weeks in a nutshell:

1) New Girl (new sitcom besides HIMYM!)


Love this adorkable show. Nearly burst a blood vessel when watching episode 8 which should totally come with a warning for weird nerdy bedroom shiz. Will continue to enjoy this show for as long as it runs because it's worth it! :D

2) Hobbycon 2011 at Suria KK

Umbrella Corp guy, I hope you're as hot inside as you are on the outside, and if you are, call/tweet/buzz me! ;-)

This is starting to become a yearly tradition. Every y…

Oh Happy Days!

Dinner at Sailor's Cafe at Grand Millenium with the 8TV Without Boundaries crew (who btw are pretty awesome people) and *ahem* who dropped by little ol' KK again after a shoot at Mount Kinabalu recently.

Little Wonders...

After finally relenting to my baby sister's insistence that I watch Meet the Robinsons (2007), I finally gave it a go.


And enjoyed it immensely! Which is saying a lot since I don't usually like animated movies. Especially the new-fangled ones. Gone are the days of Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, Cinderella and Little Mermaid. Their heydays are long over and what's left of them is lurking all over Disneyland.

Meet the Robinsons is a little wacky, a little bumbling but like lot of Disney movies are - all heart. A lovely story about how we have to keep moving forward even though we may fail and how precious families are.

If you haven't watched this yet, you should!

P/S: *sheepishly* I kind of dearly hope there's a sequel!

My Heart Skips a Beat

Currently listening to some Lenka while typing this out, hence the sappy title. :)

BEHOLD~

Okay. I AM SO HOOKED. LINE. AND SINKER.

Pics are actually unsupported GIFs from Episode 29. A pity.

I should probably get a Tumblr too since I enjoy stalking Ojakgyo Brothers updates over there. At least the GIFs work.

Maybe. Someday. Probably. Hopefully. (I wonder how long I can dodge this before I will actually admit that I am too caught up in my own dramas like updating my FB, Twitter AND blog to bother...)

And all this on top of saving the world, one fish at a time. ;-P

The One That Got Away

I am a genuine sucker for these kinds of videos. I ADORED 'Thinking Of You' and 'The One That Got Away' is another of my favorites. Keep making story-based music videos like Taylor Swift and I might just fall in love with every leading male character in their videos! =D (In this case, it's Diego Luna!)

Earlier this month, Mrs. Russell Brand puzzled me greatly with her slew of melancholic posts whenever I happened to glance at them in my newsfeed. Now that her video's out, it's like someone just shone some light in my hazy memory. I've reposted her teaser updates in case I ever wanna look back on them because they are lovely photos!

Could you still sketch every line of their face?

Do you remember what it was like to hold your hand in theirs?

Do you ever get a strange feeling of Déjà Vu?

Do you ever wonder if you’re staring at the same sunset as them?

Would you give anything to have them sitting next to you again?

Do you still laugh at their jokes?

What do you mi…

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…

Newest Obsession: Game of Thrones

Just a brief look at my current crack: HBO TV series Game of Thrones based on the book series Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. There are seven freakin' books! I love the supernatural/medieval bits in it but is all the nudity really necessary?? True Blood is practically conservative next to this TV show.

Characters I adore! Honestly, half the time I don't know why I adore them, I just do!

L-R: Cute little Bran Stark, the bastard son Jon Snow, the dancing teacher Syrio Forel, the sweet and fearsome Daenerys Targayen and the feisty little Arya Stark.

Honorable Mentions: Eddard Stark, the wilding lady caught by the Starks, Samwell Tarly

Characters I loathe/absolutely do not like no matter how much you try to rationalize their actions to me:

L-R: Lena Headey as Queen Cersei, Lysa Tully and her wretched son, Sansa Stark, Joffrey Lannister and his trusty bloodthirsty sidekick, The Hound.

Honorable Mentions: That Whatsisface Commander at The Wall, Petyr Daenish, random witch lady

Awi Rafael is waiting for you everyday!

I giggled when I heard the Manglish version of this song which you can hear for yourself in the video above. I heard the Malay version on Suria.fm Sabah (I don't actively listen to this radio channel), I actually prefer Hitz.fm-I love you two, Rica and Cassie!!! *blows kisses* But yea, they played this song often enough at the staff canteen for it to get stuck in my head.

Sorry for subjecting you to epileptic fits when watching this vid. Malaysian music is so funny! The BM version is better but it kinda reminds me of 24:7's song. Teehee!

Chorus:
Mungkinkah aku yang tidak sekaya
Mungkinkah aku yang tidak bergaya
Haruskan aku pun tetap menantikanmu
Berikan jawapan
Pulanglah sebelum ku runaway
Aku menanti kamu everyday
Aku menunggu dari Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Aku tak ingin tak perlu
Pulanglah sebelum ku runaway
Aku menanti kamu everyday
Aku menunggu dari Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Aku tak ingin tak perlu
Aku dah bingung

I still not-so-secretly like this song.

Halloween Short

Excerpt from this article in TIME about what scares the people who scare us:

“There were eight or nine of us at a restaurant in Raleigh, North Carolina, and we were telling ghost stories. The friend of a friend said, ‘When I was a girl living in Texas, I had a recurring dream. In this dream, I was walking down the street of my hometown, and a man would walk toward me. Sometimes he was older and sometimes he was younger. He didn’t always have the same face, but I always knew it was the same man. He would get closer and closer, and I would know that something bad was going to happen, but I would wake up each time before he reached me. I would be terrified. One night, in my dream, we finally got face to face and I spoke to him. I said, “What is your name?” He said, “My name is Sammy.” And then I woke up, and I was so afraid that I couldn’t go back to sleep. I went to my sister’s room and said, “Can I get in bed with you? I've just had a really bad dream.” My sister said, “…

* Big Watch (Okay, I haven't gotten one of those yet.)

* Scars from trigger fish bites (Thank God, I haven't felt one of those yet but white damselfishes are pure evil!)
* Expertise on anti-histamines

You can spot old time divers by:

Hee hee! Found this over at malaysiaunderwater.com. A lot of funny divers out there... XD

Konnichiwa Japanese Fair ^_^

Dropped by Citymall KK to check out the japanese fair there last Saturday all thanks to my otaku sister! It was held from the 7th-9th October. Though not as exciting as the yearly Hobbycon, there was a dancing competition and sushi competition. Here are a few pics from the event (I'm not in any of them because I was playing photographer for the day...):

Mr Danboard greeted us in the parking lot...



This group of schoolboys strongly reminded me of Max 24:7! Most of the performers danced to Japanese songs sung by Koreans... @_@

Didn't get to see these army people perform!

You can buy collector items like samurai swords here!


Spotted Plue from Rave Master at one of the stalls!


Bought a couple boxes of Koala cookies (made in Thailand =_=') and sushi from Hana Restaurant's sushi stand! My mood that day wasn't so great because I was born a girl (cramps are evil). Can't believe I get dragged to these things by my baby sis every year. It amuses her somehow.

New Phone! :DDDDDD

Okay, so scratch that Blackberry. I settled for the more reasonably priced HTC Wildfire S in pink (I couldn't take my eyes off it when I first saw it!). My very first smartphone... *blushes* I know I'm a little slow on the bandwagon and it was like complete phone-culture shock using it at first, but I think I've more or less got the hang of it!

I have decided to call my phone Lenglui (my lappie is Princess Sophia). Don't judge. ;-P

I really do hope it will at least last a year without any problems. So far, I'm just enjoying using the apps especially HTC Peep, Facebook for HTC Sense, Fruit Slice, Foursquare, Angry Birds, surfing anywhere with Wifi (haven't subscribed to an Internet package yet) and playing around with pics in the gallery... I could do this all day long!! *swipes to the next picture*

The novelty will eventually pass I'm sure since there are lots of other fabulous phones on the market, but for an entry level phone for beginners like me, it's …

Guilty Pleasure: Ojakgyo Family [2011]

I give you, my latest craze: Ojakgyo Family (오작교 형제들)! I know watching K-dramas may not be the coolest hobby out there but I thrive on the stuff. Especially those family dramas where you can see how tightly knit Asian families are (just ignore all that stuff about birth secrets and evil stepmothers). I tend to gravitate to the cuter kind of family dramas, not the makjang ones where everybody seems to be cheating and spitting poison at each other.

Ojakgyo family is pretty addictive, though this is actually the second weekend drama that I've picked up (the first being Smile, You). Weekend dramas tend to be about 50 episodes unlike trendy dramas which usually span about 16 episodes. I have only watched one daily drama - You Are My Destiny starring SNSD's Yoona. Daily dramas can be over 100 episodes! Phew!

MY THOUGHTS:

Uee/Joo Won - (or Baek Ja Eun/Hwang Tae Hee) Not nearly enough Uee/Joo Won moments! NOT ENOUGHHHH... Uee was quite spoilt in the beginning and hopeless even though sh…

Miss AM - 'Goodbye Baby' Parody

This sort of thing where a boy group performs a girl group's song always gets me giggling. I present to you, Miss AM's dance practice of Goodbye Baby! I think Jo Kwon is Min, Jin Woon is Suzy (I very nearly died) and Chang Min is Jia. So I guess Seulong must be Fei! XD



I doubt I'll be writing up a serious blog post anytime soon... I expect I'll be blogging in bits and pieces for the time being, so please bear with me... Hey, at least I'm blogging!

The Nyan Cat Re-emerges Again

This seems to popping out a lot in people's conversations lately. I forgot who introduced this infamous cat to me, I think it was one of my silly sisters a couple of months ago.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the infamous Nyan Nyan Cat.


Click to visit Nyan.cat in all its glory (with music!) and see how long you can nyancat. @_@


Ah, Internet memes. XD

MBLAQ Doesn't Know...

...how much I love them! Call it a passing fancy but their latest offering to kpop fans has got my toes curling in squeelified goodness.

I find MBLAQ's performance of I Don't Know (모르겠어요) charming somehow... And it finally got me interested in MBLAQ as I find Lee Joon boorish and even though Mir is somewhat adorable and Sandara Park's brother is in the group, they just never had a song I actually liked.

Well, I Don't Know definitely marks a turning point for me, kinda what Beautiful did for me and B2ST. Now I adore both groups!

The only guy I've seen who can pull off Harry Potter glasses:


Previously unbeknownst to myself, G.O. (or Jung Byung Hee) debuted as the member known for his...facial hair. Pffft.



He's still a cutie though. :D (G.O., I hope you know what I'm thinking!)

And that episode of Invisible Youth where the MBLAQ boys are paired up with the girls and face horror sequences cracks me up till today!

P/S: Blogger is so buggy today. Either that or Internet…

Confirmed acts: Big Bang (TOP, Seung Ri and G-dragon), FT Island, Teen Top, 4minute, U-kiss and Park Jung Min

Jdorama rambles...

I've been looking for a jdorama to pick up ever since I graduated because all I've been watching is Team Medical Dragon 3 (I'm a TMD fan!!) and Honey and Clover (the things I watch for Osamu Mukai...). So far, I'm down to two different titles, both with vaguely interesting premises and well-known actors and actresses.

Zenkai Girl




Synopsis: Devoted to becoming an international lawyer, Ayukawa Wakaba is full of ambition. Her hard work pays off when she lands a job at an international law firm, but to her disappointment, the first prestigious assignment that is given to her is to babysit the boss' 5 year old daughter, Hinata. Wakaba loathes kids and nursing, but unwillingly takes on the job as she is fixated on wealth and success. One day when she goes to a preschool to pick up Hinata, she meets a man named Yamada Sota. Sota is a man without higher education, wealth, or a future goal, someone that Wakaba absolutely cannot stand, the complete opposite of her ideals. Onc…
