Places We Should Have Gone

One of my favourite videos from Wongfu Productions.... I secretly think it's the best.

(FYI Wong Fu Productions is an independent production company that creates short films, music videos and vlogs on their own. Starting out as dormmates, Wesley Chan, Ted Fu, and Philip Wang, have made the company what it is today. Their videos have Asian touches, which is part of their appeal I guess.)

Was scouring their Youtube channel after I enjoyed their video, Strangers Again, when I came across this little piece. Enjoy! :)



Love the music and the scenery. Actor and actress are just normal people and their parts were filmed in just ONE NIGHT. Read the Director's Commentary here for more information behind the scenes.

Cleanliness is the best policy

You know we love you, Daaaaaaadddddd!!!!! ♥

Can't Wait For Lie To Me (2011)!

Remember this? *points at sticker on my make-up box*


Ah, those were the days. Back in 2007, Princess Hours was all the rage and I remembered how I paid some girl to burn them for me and Korean dramas (VCDs) were 200 bucks per box for originals. 'Course they're a lot cheaper now thanks to the wonders of Internet streaming and the birth of the DVD. This was also Yoon Eun Hye's breakout role in the K-drama story. Her dramas are usually hits and misses for me. She always does a rotten drama after a good one. So hopefully her latest will be the bomb!

Am totally looking forward to Lie To Me, airing in South Korea this May!


Looks totally cheesy but heck, it's YOON EUN HYE! And Kang Ji Hwan! Though the former's popularity alone is more than enough to guarantee the success of a drama. I don't know much about the plotline, except that it seems a li'l rushed which makes me go uh-oh.

I do hope they won't resort to writing silly unnecessary plots to keep the story goin…

K-Movie Review: Petty Romance [2010]

One of the funniest Korean movies I've come across so far. Just when I thought it couldn't get any funnier, it bowls me over in another fit of chuckles. I expected a few laughs but this was a riot!

Choi Kang Hee is GENIUS at portraying her character of a sex-columnist-turned-manhwa-storyboard-writer (FYI, manhwa=Korean comics). And Lee Seon Gyun (RAWR) is as arrestingly charismatic as per usual playing an erm...erotic manhwa writer in dire need of a writer 'cause his stories suck. How can a plot like that not be funny??? Especially since the 'sex columnist' is a virgin, who bases all her knowledge on women's magazines?

Previously acted together in My Sweet City (2008)
This was for me what I was hoping Cyrano Dating Agency would be like for me (which was a snorefest or maybe I expected too much). Maybe the drama wrought out at the ending felt a little random but it's expected in every Korean movie ever made. I really liked the use of comic strips and effects bo…

Wish I was at the KL Bieber concert!

I have never seen Malaysia get so excited over a singer. Justin Bieber was definitely more popular than David Archuleta and Bruno Mars when they came over!!

From flashmobs,



To Hitz.fm playing Bieber songs all day yesterday AND tweeting about it like crazy,

Good Charlotte frontman, JOEL MADDEN, was there for a special appearance singin' Don't Wanna Be in Love and Selena Gomez for support (my sister's a big fan of Selena),



Malaysia's very own, MizzNina, opened the show with her hit song, "What You Waiting For",

Here she is, doing a sound check before the show

Even Daphne Iking was tweeting about the rain and how she salutes anyone who can come to a concert with high heel and falsies. Wakakakakaka!!

The thing about Justin Bieber's My World concerts is (according to my li'l sis), he picks one lucky fan to be his "One Less Lonely Girl". This was Malaysia's one less lonely girl:

:-)
His Malaysian fans look so cute wearing his signature colour=purple.

April Blues

When the mundane gets even more mundane, what shall I do?

Might be heading over to New Zealand in September for the Rugby World Cup (like I know a thing about rugby) just to show some home support for the Malaysian team! Plus my aunt's married to the Sabahan rugby coach (main reason for going). It could be really interesting...right? 'Cept people say the night life in NZ is zzzZZZ.

And when I think of New Zealand, I think of...


and


and of course...

Middle earth!!!

I do know a few people who are happily studying/working there so I'm sure there must be more to do there than meets the eye... Like getting a cool Maori tattoo! Or the wonder that is crêpes! Or good old-fashioned hiking!

Before I end this post, I know a lot of people are busy cramming for finals, with last minute presentations, tests and projects before exams in a couple of weeks so I wish you all the best!! (I secretly can't wait for uni hols to start to I have my friends back again. :D)

Flashback: Teen/College Comedies

If you were born in the 80's and grew up without watching any of these teen/college comedy flicks, then you have missed out! Well, you haven't missed much I suppose but these were fun to watch back in the day and still are! I still like 'em better than what passes muster for teen flicks nowadays. *cough*twilight*cough*

Here are my Top 15 teen/college comedies!

1) National Lampoon's Van Wilder (2002)

Van the Man, man about campus and King of Coolidge College. This guy knows all the tricks, all the moves and knows just the right thing to say. And Tara Reid was still hot. Van Wilder, I crown thee Best College Flick ever! Seriously, I wish college was like this.

2) The New Guy (2002)

Where DJ Qualls teaches us there shouldn't be a social hierarchy in high school and an important message about bullies. Bring on the funk.

3) She's All That (1999)

One of the many Freddie Prinze Jr movies that made him drool-worthy and the object of many a girl's teenage fantasies. Is p…

The road to heaven is not always clear or straight.
Couldn't resist posting this screenshot of 49 Days (Episode 6). She's doing something as ordinary as taking out the trash but I like how it seems like she's walking towards a back-to-front sign of a place called 'Heaven'.

-----------------------------
"Heaven. Hell. Limbo. No-one even knows where we're going. Or what's waiting for us when we get there. But the one thing we can say, with absolute certainty, is that there are moments that take us to another place. Moments of Heaven on Earth. And maybe for now, that's all we need to know." - Denny Duquette

When will it change?

PTPTN sucks. I mean, like not as in I owe a shitload of money for my studies which I have to pay back, but in the way they prioritize Bumis over non-Bumis to get the 1% ujrah loan conversion from the usual 3% interest rate.

Seeing other people not getting what's open to you simply because you're born with it sucks. Seriously, my fellow 'Bumis' (Malays, Kadazans, Ibans and other ethnic minorities of Sabah and Sarawak), do you really feel happy receiving all this when it's apparent that it's wholly unfair?

Answer this whosoever is in charge of these things:

Is it fair that Muslims get to build mosques left and right whereas it is difficult to get permits for other places of worship to be built legally, and not in some second floor shophouse? Should I even mention the defaced bibles of Kuching?

Is it fair Malays are prioritised in organ transplants when non-Malays make up the larger share of people who actually DONATE their freakin' organs?

Is it fair that non-Bum…
