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 miss?

Is there a song that reminds you of them every time you hear it?

Do you ever wish they’ll magically re-appear?

Rejoice!


Absolutely stunning video. Surprisingly directed by the same lady who directed E.T. If you are unable to tell, I adore Katy Perry! Manufactured for teenagers-whatever critics might say, I think she worked really hard to be where she is today.

Trailer voiceover by Stevie Nicks:

The past is like a handful of dust,
it filters through your fingers,
little by little...

I wish for one day I could go back.
In another life,
I would do things differently.

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, Asian thing), puffed out cheeks, kissy faces, creative use of other fingers and/or other hand to frame the face while winking/smiling/making 'O' shapes with their mouth, etc etc. So I'm just posting just the one, as it's as much as I can bear to have on my blog.


Admittedly, it might be cute. And some guys dig it. But I shudder at the thought of my grandkids pulling out a pic of me doing something like this.

That's all for today folks!!!

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

A heavily censored version of Game of Thrones should be airing on HBO on Astro at the moment! You will probably find that infinitely better watching. If a few pieces of information escape you, you can try buying the book like me though I have no idea where to find the sequels in Kota Kinabalu as bookstores like Popular, Harris and Times only seem to stock new books that are high in demand.

2 more episodes to go till I can put down my thoughts of the show in a proper review!

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, “Was it Sammy?” I said, “What did you say? How do you know Sammy?” And my sister said, “I don’t. But you just brought him in the room with you.” I turned on the lights and I saw that my sister was asleep.’”

- As told by Kelly Link (horror writer)


I don't know bout you but this gave me the creeps! *shivers*
