The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

OMG!!! It's The Hobbit! The Hobbit! I'm so excited! Too bad I have to wait till next year December. *sigh*

Years ago when I was 16, I was a librarian. Ah.......I was a librarian in a small 105 year old secondary school called Canossa Convent. The library was located at the top of the hall where some people think it's eerie. Being a poor school, it couldn't afford to have any air-conditioner in the library. Nobody want to put themselves in a hot and stuffy library after an exhausting day at school. Come on.......would you? It's like putting yourself into a hot oven. Some students have not even once stepped into the library throughout their years in the school before. So you can imagine how the library looked like without any students but only us librarians and racks of books.

Back then I was just a normal librarian and all I was assigned to do was arrange the books. It's a rather silly job when the books were often left barely touched. Some of the books were even covered with dust so thick that it'll scare you off the moment you see it. You wouldn't want to lay your fingers on them.

One day, as usual I wandered around the library searching for interesting storybooks while pretending like I'm arranging the books. Books by books, my hands ran over them until at last I picked up a peculiar looking book. It iwas a thick, black hardcover book with nothing but the title "The Hobbit" printed on it. It really looked like a secretive book to me. So, out of curiosity, I took it home and never regret reading it.

It is a magical story of Bilbo Baggins and his journey to Lonely Mountain to reclaim a treasure stolen by Smaug the dragon. This story is somehow related to "The Lord of the Rings" as both stories are written by the same author, J. R. R. Tolkien. If you're a fan of "The Lord of the Rings", I'm sure you'll love "The Hobbit" too.

Woohoo~ I can't wait to watch it in the cinema next year.

2011: It took me a year

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

It took me a year.
It took me a year to understand that I'm just nothing.
It took me a year to realise I'm just a bystander.
It took me a year to escape from this psychological struggle.
It took me a year to shook of the unhappiness in me.
It took me a year for me to recover myself.
And the year is 2011.

I spent a year asking myself:
"Why me?"
"What wrong had I done?"

But now, I'm thankful that it happened. I'm glad because it all happened for a reason.
There is always a reason behind everything that happened in my life.
At least that's what I believe.

Within a year, I left many people and met many people. Whoever they are, I've never once regret meeting them.

2011 will be ending in a few more days. like 2010, it is also a year that has left an impact on me. All that had happened made me realise life is not just life but the twists and turns. Because of them, my life is colorful.

Thank you 2011 and goodbye.

A trip to Penang

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

Came back from a fun Penang trip and this is what I remember.

Day 1
Breakfast: Fried Kuey Teow
Lunch: Fried Kuey Teow
Dinner: Fried Kuey Teow

Day 2
Breakfast: Fried Kuey Teow
Lunch: Fried Kuey Teow
Dinner: Fried Kuey Teow

Day 3
Breakfast: Fried Kuey Teow
Lunch: Fried Kuey Teow
Dinner: Fried Kuey Teow

Day 4
Breakfast: Fried Kuey Teow
Lunch: Fried Kuey Teow
Dinner: Fried Kuey Teow


Nah......just kidding. I didn't literally had just fried kuey teow everyday but I ate 6 plates within 4 days of visit to Penang.

Whenever I went, I'm sure to find fried kuey teow stalls without fail. I can't help having the idea that it is a common dish in Penang.

Penang did have it's famous foods. Asam laksa, lo bak and of course fried kuey teow.

Talk about that plate of most famous fried kuey teow in Penang, it got to be the most expensive fried kuey teow I've ever eaten. Price range from rm7.00 to rm8.00 per plate! WTH! That's double the normal price. ROARRR!!!!! Even though it's yummy(not that awesome as I expected) I will never ever pay rm7.50 for another plate of fried kuey teow ever again.

Anyway, it was a nice trip from Malacca to Penang. Though tired but worthwhile.

We stopped by Ipoh on our way to Penang. Ipoh is a place surrounded by beautiful mountains. Maybe my next trip will be Ipoh. Can't wait to visit Tambun hot spring. Woohoo~~

Short and inspiring video

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Have you heard of Nick Vujicic, the guy with no arms and legs? Yeah....he's born without any limbs.

Watch this video and get inspired.

Whenever I feel down, I watch and get inspired. And each and every time I watch, I cried.
I cried because I know I have no right to be sad and fret over my 'problems'. They're nothing compared to his.
I cried because I admire his courage to face his problems, get over them and conquer them.

He'll forever be an inspiring character in my heart and also someone I admire.
Yeah, I admire courageous people.

Of course if you watched any other of his video or the video above, you'll find many inspiring quotes.

I have my favourite one here.

Be optimistic!

Monday, December 19, 2011

I broke my bottle handle.
Lost my phone.
Lost my file.


From the pessimistic point of view, it's called unfortunate.

But when viewed optimistically, it's called fortunate.

It's just a bottle handle. At least I can still drink water from the bottle.
Lost my phone? That means it's time for me to change my phone.
Just a file with some not-really-important notes. I'll just use another file since I have so many more.

When you feel down, try to look at your problems from a different perspective of view. Life isn't that difficult when you view it optimistically.

Just remember......

The most difficult person to please is yourself.
The easiest person to please is also yourself.

So just chill and relax. Don't be too harsh on yourself as sometimes it brings no good at all.


Why is JYP's Joo a failure?

Saturday, December 17, 2011

I know it's very bad to call someone a failure but then she is known to be a failure of JYP company although she is not exactly a failure to me.

Who is Joo?

Do you know about Joo? Most people haven't heard of her and that's the reason why she became the failure.

Joo debuted in 2008 at the age of 18 with single "Because of A Man".

3 reasons why Joo is a failure:

Not competent enough
It's hard shine in the competitive korean music industry when you don't have either looks or talents especially if you're going solo. The music industry is just too cluttered with many groups and solos. There's approximately a total of 60 so far and still counting. There will be more coming in 2012. So, in order to standout from the crowd, you need to look good and have strong talent in singing if you're going solo. A very good example of someone with looks and talent is IU. Well, I'm not saying Joo is ugly but not appealing enough. It's just that to compete in the music industry, you really have to standout.

Not being well promoted
It's important for companies to promote their singers and it's important for them to do so. However, JYP did not put enough effort to promote Joo. JYP should have promote Joo's two single "Because of a man" and "Bad guy" which I find them rather good but sadly, JYP didn't. IU isn't really popular when she just debuted until the release of her hit song "Good day" which seems to make her popular overnight. That was when LEON Entertainment company discovers the 'hidden gem'. With the company continuously promoting IU, she's now shining brighter and ever. I do hope that Joo will be able to shine like IU someday.

Past scandals
There have been scandals lurking around revealing Joo's past that have contributed to her downfall.

Here's a picture showing her smoking with her friends at a young age. I got this picture from allkpop. Hmm.....I wonder who took and uploaded these pictures. It must have been taken years ago.

So these are mainly the reasons for Joo's downfall.


Now, I'll like to show you something else. I stumbled upon an article about Joo in allkpop.

What pissed me off is the way the article was written.

Along with SNSD’s Yoona and Sooyoungthe failure JOO, from JYP Entertainment has also graduated from high school on February 12th. She will be moving on to attend Dong-guk University, the same university where SNSD‘s Yoona and Wonder Girls’ Sun Ye will be studying.

Seriously? Do you have to emphasis "the failure"?

JOO celebrated the night of her graduation with tons of alcohol and a bunch of trashed people. Just kidding.

And "with tons of alcohol and a bunch of trashed people"?

The party girl’s pictures from graduation:
You’d think JYP would make JOO look a little less uglier more presentable on her graduation day.

And this? WTH?!!

Here’s the only song I know one of JOO’s songs, Because of a Man.

Is there a need to emphasis it's the only song you know?

This is all pure sarcasm and biased. This is such a let down that allkpop would write these kind of stuff. Allkpop should feel ashamed for publishing this article. I hope allkpop will delete this article because it does nothing but to tarnish the idol's image.

Here's another song by Joo that's in my opinion, better than "Because of a Man". Do give this a try.

Song title: Bad Guy (feat 2pm Chansung)

I hope JYP doesn't ditch her just like that and gave her another chance. Looking forward to hear some news about her soon.

So what do you thing about Joo? Do you thing she has the potential or is she really a failure of JYP?
Do share with me your opinions.

Share this?

Polka dots crazy!

Thursday, December 15, 2011

I'm so obsessed with polka dots lately especially polka dot blouses and dresses. It has a vintage style yet so cute and eye-catching. Don't you think so?

My friend commented: "Eeee......those polka dot clothes are like the 70's fashion la..."

I don't care. I just think polka dots are so so so cute! In fact, I love 70's vintage fashion style.

I don't care if it's just a background....

Or a blouse.....

Or a dress.....

Or flats.....

Or a headband.....

But please, NOT polka dot pants.

Oh gosh......It's like a fashion disaster to me.

This little girl looks so cute in polka dot dress. Oh my gosh! How I wish I look like her.

So cute!

Chinese New Year is around the corner in approximately one more month. It's the time again to shop for new clothes. Woohoo~

I'm going for a shopping spree in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow.
Assignments, stand aside! Lalalalala~~~


Monday, December 12, 2011

You like me, you like me not.......
You love me, you love me not.......
You hate me, you hate me not.......
You forget me, please, forget me not.

Forget me not. A very queer name for a flower. I wonder who named it at the first place. Who named it, you ask? Wikipedia is the solution and the answer is God.

According to German legend, god named all the plants and flowers except for a tiny unnamed one who cried out: "Forget-me-not, O Lord!". Upon hearing, God replied: "That shall be you name." Hence, the name forget-me-not is given.

Like its name, it's a flower that represents true, faithful love. It can be romantic for some people but secretive to me. Blue with a hint of purple, definitely a secretive colour to me.

Don't you love this forget-me-not colour? Because I do and I couldn't forget about it.
(I don't know what is the name of this colour so I just name it the forget-me-not colour.)

The gorgeous dress of my dream

Saturday, December 10, 2011

There goes another last minute study for maths: Probability and Statistics. I know I shouldn't do any last-minute work by now as I'm 19 years old right? But I just couldn't help it.

The devil Amber kept saying: "Ah......it's just maths after all. It's just a mid-test. It's only two chapters. No worries!"

Angel Amber: "Oh freak! Why are you always listening to the devil?! Please..........damn."

Don't worry. My mid-test is already over. It was okay. Looks like my last-minute study worked again. Muahaha~

Oh well, although I can handle this last minute task this time but I'm sure this bad habit is going to eat me up someday and force me to face the consequences. *sobs*

You know I'm a k-pop fan, right? (Almost an addict.) If you don't, now you know. That's why I'm constantly following k-pop news from allkpop. No. I don't read ALL the news. Just a few here and there daily and that's enough.

I just want to share something.

My ideal dream dress!


After School's UEE showing off her Barbie trophy she received from '2011 Barbie & Ken Awards'.

It's the dress on that barbie I'm talking about! OMG!!! That's  so so soooooo gorgeous!!! I wouldn't mind if it's just a trophy. No wonder UEE is proud of it.
If you didn't notice, she's wearing the same dress as her barbie trophy. OMG! I want that dress!!! T^T

By the way, that dress looks like some kind of fairylike wedding dress. Okay, I've decided. That dress is going to be my wedding dress.

*cough...cough..* Maybe it's a little too early for me to think of wedding. Hahaha!

A visitor from an invisible country

Wednesday, December 7, 2011

My blog stats per day isn't stable at all. Some days, I can reach 40+ pageviews (rarely) while other days I only get 1 pageview (rarely nowadays).

A few days ago, I checked my stats (I check almost on daily basis) and found there's only 1 visitor. Curiously and automatically, my mouse found its' way to the Audience button and clicked it.

This is what I got.

1 visitor from Puerto Rico!

(rubbed my eyes....)

(after 10 seconds...)


I was wondering if blogger had forgotten to highlight the location of Puerto Rico on the map with green colour. Later on, I googled and found out Puerto Rico is an island located somewhere along the Caribbean Sea.

Somewhere in the circled area.

Puerto Rico is so tiny, as tiny as Singapore (perhaps smaller?) that it couldn't be seen in this map. Perhaps blogger should enlarge the map so that these tiny little islands can be seen someday.

Chasing dreams

Friday, December 2, 2011

Quote of the day:

"A dream is not just a dream if only we have the courage and determination to make it happen.
You are the owner of your dream and it's up to you to make it happen."

Do you have any dreams?
I am not talking about the dream you have when you're asleep but the dreams of your life.

Everybody has a dream.
What is yours?
How do you define it?

To me, dreams are often the opposite of reality. In fact a dream is an ideal illusion we create in our mind.

A dream is a simple thing that everyone have, can have and should have. I believe it's healthy to have dreams as it serves as a guidance in life. Dream is something you want to achieve in life, a goal, a compass of you life. A person without a dream is like a boat sailing aimlessly in the middle of the deep wide ocean, not knowing where to head. Without dream, life is meaningless and one cannot go far. When there is dream, there is hope and future.

Different people have different dreams. Some want it big, to work in a big company, have a luxurious life; while others want it simple, to live a peaceful and blissful life.

I used to be (still am) that poor aimless boat floating in the middle of the ocean. That's why I chose A-levels, not because I'm smart but to lengthen the time span of another one and a half year for me to determine what I want to study in the future. So, one and a half year passed and I still couldn't decide.

In the end, I accepted my dad's proposal to study foundation in management which I'll then proceed to take degree in accounting next year. The reason my dad gave was accounting jobs are always highly in demand and there is a tiny chance that accountants will face a job crisis. So I accept dad's proposal thinking maybe it's the best for me?

Until today, I still doubt myself in making the right decision. Many questions flooded my mind. What if I find out accounting isn't the thing I want to study? What if I regret on my decision only years later? Will it be too late? All these I-don't-know-what-to-do feelings are suffocating at times.

Despite all those doubts, I have a dream........and my dream is to be the daring heroine in my heart that is brave enough to overcome all obstacles and be the owner of my dreams. (If that makes any sense to you)

Here's an interesting short story I stumbled upon in Wikipedia.

Life is a Dream

The King of Poland has kept his son Segismundo secretly imprisoned since birth because an oracle prophesied that the prince would bring disaster to the country. Telling his subjects that the boy died soon after childbirth, he manages to keep his son hidden until he has grown to be a man. When Segismundo reaches maturity, the King wishes to reveal his son at last, restoring the Prince as rightful heir to the throne. The King brings Segismundo to court and tells him about his Princely heritage. This discovery makes him violent, however, and he rages, killing a servant, attempting to rape a woman, and injuring the King's advisor.
Horrified and certain of the truthfulness of the prophecy, the King has Segismundo drugged and returned to his tower prison. Upon waking he mourns, believing the previous day's events had been nothing more than a dream.
Though he remains oblivious in his cell, the people have discovered Segismundo's plight and break him out of prison. Though Segismundo rejoices, he cannot be sure whether this new development is, in fact, reality or still just a dream.
The rebels persist, though, and Segismundo raises an army of the people. Together they defeat the king, but Segismundo cannot take his father's life. Moved at this gesture, the King proclaims Segismundo heir to his throne. As ruler, he resolves to live by the motto that "God is God," acknowledging that one must strive for goodness whether he is asleep or awake.

Oh my idols!!

Friday, December 2, 2011

I saw this post on my sister's Facebook wall yesterday.

Rui Lin
 ·  · Tuesday at 8:08pm · 

My response??

Amber Tan  
SHIT U!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTH WTH WHTHTHWTHH!!!!!!!!!!! I WANT AH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *jealous*

Then I proceeded to blast out my 'bu shuang' feelings or discontentment as my Facebook status.......

Amber Tan 
While I was trapped in the boring life in MMU yesterday, my sister saw SNSD, SUPER JUNIOR, BEAST and MISS A LIVE!!! WTH!! LIVE?! OMG!!!! GOD!! WHY??!?!!! I'm so jealous I wanna kill myself dy. T^T 
 ·  · Wednesday at 6:58pm

Which surprisingly attracted some likes. =_="

These korean idols were there for the 2011 Mnet Asian Music Awards which was held in Singapore which means there were other groups that attended the award ceremony as well. 

Having such a luck to catch a live glimpse of your favourite idols even just for a few minutes can give you a good adrenaline rush and make you high for the rest of the weeks. At least that's the kind of adrenaline rush I'll get if I get to see my favourite idols in front of me.

It's been two years since my very first concert with my most favourite idol Super Junior!! I'm still having adrenaline rush each time I think of that concert. =D


My two top favourite groups Super junior and f(x) will be here in Malaysia soon in another 2 days!!! Too bad I couldn't attend because I have to get myself prepared for my mid-term which is coming soon too. 5 more days to go. Arghh!!!

Feeling stressful?

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

It has been days since my last post. It isn't because I'm away or anything else but the horrifying loads of assignments. I've been chasing after the due date which is tomorrow. Busy, busy busy......arrgh!!

Anyway, I'll try to keep this post as short and sweet as possible.

Are you feeling stressful lately? SPM, STPM, A-levels or final exams around the corner? Assignment due dates coming close?

Then here's something for you.

WARNING: Use at your own risk!

Whoa!! Halt!
Please don't bang on your computer screen la~~!

Hahaha! What an ingenious idea somebody invented isn't it?

I remembered back when I studied in Sunway University, I used to see this a lot. It was pasted on every door of the lecture room. I've always wonder if anyone really gave their head a good bang on this kit? If that person really did, he or she must be feeling ridiculously stressful. Or maybe he or she has nothing better to do. LOL!

That's all for today. Remember to check back for my next post which will be coming........soon? (I hope so!)

The influences of k-pop

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Have you heard of Wonder Girls? Big bang? Super Junior? SNSD? f(x)? U-kiss? Beast? 4minute? Teen Top? MBLAQ? BoA? IU? (and the list goes on and on and on). I wouldn't want to list all of them as it'll be a waste of time. There is seriously too many groups produced in the korean music industry. So do you know any of the groups I've listed? At least 3? Are you a fan of k-pop too? Or you're a k-drama fan? Am I asking a tad too much? XD

For the past few years, the popularity of k-pop has been growing steadily across Malaysia and also in other countries like Phillippines, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia too. Now, the k-pop influence is starting to spread gradually across western countries. SM town concert held in Paris and New York this year are proves.

With the k-pop craze spreading across the world, it has nonetheless asserted many influences towards teenagers nowadays (especially asian teenagers).

The obvious influence has to be fashion.

SNSD vs f(x)

Korean fashion is no doubt a hit among asians.
Baggy shirts, tight pants, short pants and high heels.
A match of any of these produce a casual yet trendy fashion. Besides, it gives one the illusion of a slimmer and taller stature.

The second will be make up and beauty.
It isn't difficult to see why.

Oh so perfect & pretty!

It's every girl's dream to have a perfect natural glowing skin.

With korean idols promoting a natural flawless look, teenagers are getting more and more self-conscious of their own appearance which indirectly drives self-improvement. Therefore, makeup products like foundation and bb cream are used to achieve that ideal look.

Besides, the makeup wore by korean idols have been inspiring many people to follow them.
Here are some korean idol inspired makeup tutorials.

One of my favourite tutorials.
In the end, she looks more like Sandara Park than CL. LOL!

Korean modern dance is also one of the few major influences. Go and watch Music Bank on KBS or any of the group's mv. Most of their mv comes with a package which offers addictive songs with awesome dance moves. It's a no wonder why people are getting more and more interested in learning those dances.

Watch this full mv:

It's SHINee's Lucifer! One of my all time favourites.

Then the dance practice (highly reccommended):

Superb, fabulous, awesome!

I saw an interesting comment regarding this dance practice video.

What kind of fabric is taemin's shirt? 1% cotton 99% sexy


This is how k-pop have influenced me in terms of fashion and beauty. I also tried learning f(x)'s Pinocchio dance steps but gave up because I don't have the talents. (Aww....so sad)

How about you? How did k-pop influenced you?

About my blog

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

A few days ago, someone asked me this question:

"What should I write about?"

Yes. It's her first time blogging.

That is the same question I asked myself years ago when I first signed up for blogger. Without any knowledge about blogging (I don't even know the existence of blogger or how a blog looks like......(so noob)), I joined blogger because all my friends have it. I'm just a teenager back then (still am) so I guess it's normal for me to follow suit?

So what did I blogged about?

Like most people, I make blogger as my diary and write about my life and thoughts (that's how my blog title is derived). You can have a look here. I didn't bother whether anyone read or visited my blog. It was until recently that I discovered blogger actually provides Stats which makes it easier for us bloggers to monitor our blogs. There are 4 sections:
  1. Overview - lets you see the number of view on your blog at that moment, day, week, month and overall since the day you started blogging.
  2. Posts - lets you see what are the popular post others have been reading on your blog.
  3. Traffic sources - you can know from where your blog readers have been referred to your blog.
  4. Audience - who are you blog readers? Where are they from?

So after I learned about blog stats, I realised that very few people have been reading my blog. My highest pageviews per month was only 57 (oh pity me~~~). That was when I got motivated and decided to blog more. Within a month, my pageviews per month shot up to 270 which shocks me and motivates me even more. Okay, I know 270 pageviews is a pitiful amount compared to those experienced bloggers who can reach 1000 pageviews within a day but who cares.......at least I got some encouragement.

I've been a blogger for 2 years, laying inactive until 6 months ago. Of course I've visited quite some blogs, often seeing the nuffnang logo in them. But I've never questioned about the logo until yesterday. Out of curiosity while visiting one of the blogs, I clicked on the nuffnang logo and was immediately directed to their website. That was the moment I regretted for not finding out what nuffnang was. Nuffnang is an online blog advertising community which can help you make money (provided if you are a successfulblogger). Damn! I should have signed up for it earlier. I should have signed up the moment I created this blog! Arghh!!! Who knows I might have earned RM0.50 or RM1.00 if I did. Who knows right? And hey! RM0.50 might look pitiful but it's still money. RM0.50 can buy you a tiny packet of chips that can probably last your hungry stomach 30 minutes. I'm serious. RM0.50 is a lot of money! Go watch the video. XD

Okay, end of my ranting. Now, to the main point:

What should beginner bloggers do?
  1. Go sign up for nuffnang or adsense or any advertising community that can let you earn money while blogging! Imagine earning while doing something you like. It's call killing two birds with one stone. (unless you're not interested in money?)
  2. Post something of your own interest. Be it about your daily life, fashion or cars. As long as you post something, there will be people reading it.
  3. Post a lot. Yes, I mean A LOT! Many! Like almost a blog a day. (but I fail to do so because I'm lazy)
  4. Design your blog to you own liking. Make it cute and lovely, dark and secretive or just simple. A beautifully designed blog can attract readers too. It's like an appetizer to readers.
  5. Make your posts as interesting as possible too. Images and videos are some of the ways to add spices to your posts.
I'm still a beginner myself and I find these tips useful as they've helped me a lot. I'm just sharing them. Sharing is caring right? I hope you'll find these tips useful someday even if it's a little. Thanks for reading and have fun blogging! =D

Are we just pretending?

Monday, November 21, 2011

Here's another of my favourite Glee song. Good song with good lyrics.

Seriously, many of the songs sung by Glee are awesome.

Before watching Glee, I used to think that Glee is just another High School Musical but I was wrong. Yeah, both Glee and High School Musical did musicals but Glee is better. Way better.

Here's the song with lyrics included. Enjoy~

The lyrics (literally every line) has been lingering in my mind for some time, especially this line.

"......Or will we forever only be pretending?"

Pretenders. Are we?

Photo edits

Sunday, November 20, 2011

Whenever I'm bored, I went stalking on Facebook (you don't? you're weird.....hahaha!). Okay, okay.......it's not exactly stalking. It's actually what I call friends'-picture-reviewing moments. So yeah, I'm not a stalker. Don't be afraid arrr........hahahaha!!!

So during me so called picture-reviewing moments, I realised that most people have their original pictures (mostly selcas....a.k.a self-captured picture) edited or photoshopped before uploading them for the world to see.

In awe of their awesome photo editing skills, I went to search for some free photo editing sites and found a handful of them. *gasp*

There's picnik, pizap, befunky, fotoflexer, lunapic and much more.

As I said I was bored, I visited every site and played with it, trying to produce a somehow awesome picture through trial and error. (It's my first time!!)

My favourites are fotoflexer, picnik and befunky.

All of them have similar but different editing functions.

Both picnik and fotoflexer have blemish fixing functions (which is a must for me XD) but picnik's is better compared to fotoflexer.

Each photo editor have their own pros and cons. It's up to you to decide which is best for you.

Tadaa~~ Here are the results of my experiment. :P


After using picnik's blemish fix and exposure being altered:

With befunky HDR effect:



I hope my editing skills isn't that bad. I love the effect of underpainting. Lovely!

Btw, there's a morphing funtion in fotoflexter. I tried and.......EPIC FAIL!!! I don't dare to save the result of morphing as I looked like a mutant. A horrible mutant, uglier than the shrek. T^T

Anyway, I'll try to improve on my morphing skills (and maybe share it by the end of 2011?). Just wait and see. LOL!

I'm so hot!

Saturday, November 19, 2011

The weather is getting hotter and hotter nowadays even though it's monsoon season now. There's the occasional rain and storm every now and then but I still feel like it's a HOT HOT SUMMER~~

Frankly speaking, this song didn't catch my attention at all the first time I listened to it. I just love the their cute-funky colored outfits. It really gives the mv a splash of cheerful colors.

My first impression?
Ahh......not addictive at all. Why are they winning awards for this song?

I was wrong.

Days later, the song suddenly popped up and got stucked in my head. The next thing, I found myself automatically singing: "Hot summer~ A hot,hot summer~" over and over again. Just like any of their songs, it's annoying the first time but got addictive afterwards.

I still couldn't understand how every korean idol can dance in those killer heels and still look good. Anyway, the dance is cute but rather complicated (as usual for a noob like me).

My 2 favourite f(x) members:


As cute as always!

And Victoria~

Freebies for you!

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Hey guys, I have recently wonder around other people's blog and came across this.

Hold on. Do you love freebies?
(Duhh.....who doesn't love freebies??)

Then this is for you!

OMG!!! Burger king spicy chick n crisp for just RM1 with any carbonate drink purchased?! *drooling*
Don't forget to grab your's tomorrow!

How about some fruit juices? *slurp*

You can get more detailed informations and other freebies/deals here.

Too bad most of the offers are only available in Kuala Lumpur..... *sobs* but nevermind. At least I can have a free sample. (better than nothing lar.....)

Just a few clicks and you'll receive a tiny pack of Biore Facial Foam Pure Mild 15g sample.

I haven't tried any of the Biore products before and this sample will be perfect for me. I might consider it if it doesn't cause any havoc on my already troubled face.

The Face Shop has discontinued their Quick & Clean range and soon I'll be out of facial foam. *boohoo* Face Shop....why do you wanna discontinue it? That's my favourite range! Especially the moisturizer!! *argghh!!* I couldn't seems to find another moisturizer as good or even better than this one.

Peer pressure

Saturday, November 12, 2011

What is peer pressure? I'm sure you all know.

Peer pressure is the pressure exerted by your peer group that can influence you and affect your future.

"近朱者赤, 近墨者黑"

It is a chinese idiom meaning: One takes the behaviour of one's company.

That is why friends are so important to us. Their pressure are so powerful that they can influence and affect you in many ways, sometimes without you realizing it. Don't be surprise when an old friend that you've not met for a couple of years says you changed a lot.

People change. Everyone change as they grow old. Peer pressure is just a small contribution to the change. There are many other factors such as environment, experience and their own willingness to change.

I've been suffering from (indirect)peer pressure lately and I'm quite surprised at it.

My current peer pressure:
1.) They're smart. I want to be.
2.) They're tall. I want to be.
3.) They're beautiful. I want to be.
4.) They have nice clothes. I want.
5.) They have so much fun. I want.
6.) They have boyfriends. I want.
7.) They changed. I want too.

Some kind of pressure I have here. LOL!

My Handmade Christmas Bookmark

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

At last, I've created a bookmark for my business project.

Sadly, this is only what my creative juice can produce.

As christmas festival is around the corner, I've decided to make it as the theme for the bookmark.

And this is what I made.....

Simple and......err.....looks cheap? LOL! I don't care! I like it!

Teehee......a book as a gift from my sister.

Hohoho~~~are you starting to get the christmas vibe already?

A day with my family

Monday, November 7, 2011

Doesn't this look yummy? Maybe it's not but it tastes really delicious. It's a nyonya delicacy (I guess) which consist of sagu, coconut milk and gula melaka. Definitely a thumbs up!

My sister was suppose to go back to Singapore yesterday but she was lucky that she got a ticket for today at the last minute. Lucky her. So to celebrate her luck and her extended-another-day in malacca, dad decided to bring us to Flo bar which is at the lobby of Equatorial hotel.

After we found a place and settled down, the waiter came, placed four wine glasses and then pointing and asked:"Is it okay for your daughter to have wine?" Well, five people sat down and he only took four glasses. Obviously he thinks I'm underage. LOL! I'm 19 already!

We shared a bottle of grape wine which cost about rm200. My youngest sister had fruit punch instead because she is the only underage (not me!).

This is me with a half-drunk look. LOL!

Maggi mee for dinner~

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

It's a hectic day today. Running around the university to attend classes, video shooting and meeting.

At last, when all the business ended, when I thought I can finally take a nice bathe and have a rest, the rain came like a king, preventing me from strolling back to my hostel. No, I didn't even have the chance to stroll at all. The rain was too heavy. There wasn't just rain but with clashing thunder too. It was a thunderstorm. All I can do was just stood there like a refugee, waiting for a kind person to send me back.

I was happy that my friend's aunt agreed to send me back to my hostel and so here I am now.

It is still raining heavily right now except that the thunder had gone away (thank god!!).

I did not get to have my dinner at the usual restaurant I always go as I wanted to avoid the heavy rain. When the rain had subsided, I went to the mini market just right opposite my hostel and grabbed a cup of instant noodle.

Woohoo!! Instant noodle for dinner tonight. Yeah!

Excitedly, I looked around the cup, finding for instructions on how to cook this cup instant noodle. No matter how I search, I couldn't find it. Then it dawned on me. Argh! So stupid of me! Cooking cup instant noodle is the easiest thing ever. Even toddlers know. Just pour hot water, wait for a few minutes, put in the sauce given and done.

Damn. I'm so dumb. T^T

Yes. It's my first time eating cup noodles. LOL! LOL! LOL!

Real Steel: moral value

Monday, October 31, 2011

Hey, have you watched Real Steel? Yes. Real Steel the movie.

My sister and her boyfriend went to watch this movie yesterday because of it's many positive reviews and so I tagged along too.

That movie isn't that awesome like I hoped for or that exciting like some people described. I would say the movie is good, not awesome. Maybe robot boxing isn't mind blowing enough for me.

So, you've watched the movie? Did you learned something?

Most movies try to deliver some kind of moral value to the viewers and so did Real Steel.

Did the little boy win in the end? No. But he was ecstatic.

It doesn't matter if you win or lose in the end. It is the process that matters. Like our lives. Joy is not found in finishing something but by doing it.

No matter how many lemons life gave you, endure it. Do you best, enjoy and you're sure to love the outcome.

In trouble? Watch comedy...

Saturday, October 29, 2011

Oh my god, oh my god, omg, omgggggggggggg....................

I'm in DEEP trouble.

Yeah, I mean it. DEEP trouble.

Business presentation is just a few more days away (this coming Thursday) and I'm still struggling. No speech, no slide. Nothing yet. Worst of all, it's a group presentation and none of us are prepared yet. Oh no, I'm doomed!

"Hey, chill. Just a presentation. It's not like the world is falling down. No big deal. =D"

Yeah but to me, a presentation (not to mention public speaking) = doomsday!

"Well then, you still have time to prepare. Four more days to go."

Right. But those time are for me to procrastinate.

O_O *speechless*


Okay. I know myself. Prepared or not, I'm gonna get nervous and tongue-tied and mess up everything anyway. So just chill.

I remembered my sister telling me about a Canadian stand up comedian, Russell Peters and talked about how funny he is.

I came across this and yeah, he is funny indeed. What he said about chinese (especially dealing with money.....LOL!) is so true.

You got to watch this video to know what I mean. It won't hurt to spend just 3 minutes of your time watching this.

Have a nice day! =D

50 cents is A LOT of money!! Hahaha!!

Yeah! I totally agree to that. Although you can't buy expensive things or even a pack of nasi lemak with 50 cents but you can certainly able to buy a handful of sweets or even a packet of potato chips.

If you're to talk about 1 cent then...........better don't give it to me. To me, 1 cent is like nothing to me. NOTHING. *throws the 1 cent out*

Rainy day

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

It's a rainy day today (without thunder). YAY!!

Rainy day, a day when I get to enjoy those lovely cool breeze softly brushing through me. So soothing, it always makes me feel nostalgic.

I remember when I was young, whenever it rained, I would ran out to the rain joyfully, feeling the rain dropped on me. My grandmother would then yelled at me and hurried me back indoor.


As I sat looking at the rain, a faint smile spread across my face. I wasn't exactly happy. I wished that the rain could wash away the pain and hatred in my heart.

Anyway, I randomly found this picture and just had to share it out.
Hahaha!! Gosh...this is funny! XD
