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!

download the ebooks~ :p i have them if you can find a software that can read epub files. :)

btw, the books for a song of ice and fire is up to book 5 (which took george r.r. martin 5 years to write). books 6 and 7 are not out yet...and they're kinda old... so i think you'll be able to find them in popular or harris. :D

Yeah, I saw them! They're these huge books I always pass over because they're, well, HUGE! But now that the series seems so interesting, I'll try to give it a go. I don't like reading ebooks. I always forget my page and get distracted because I don't like staring at a computer screen that long...

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...

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…
