*NSYNC - Pop (Dirty Pop)

Oh God, this video really bring back the nostalgic feeling of the boyband era.
I still remember it was the release of this single by *NSYNC that drive me begging
my mom to buy the "Celebrity" album for me.

I mean, what is there to dislike about the song,
catchy chorus, funky beats and nifty dance sequence with awesome effects.

This really put Britney's Gimme More to shame.

Foreigners = Blondies + White @ Black - Asian?

Well, for Pete's sake, does being a foreigner means i have to be
a blondie with angelic good looks and model-esque figures and a sexy appeal?

I've really had it with all the shallow people around me,
who goes all ga-ga over those plastics (it's a word i use for describing those white trash)

So, i'm an Asian, so what?
I don't have a tattoo, or a translucent eyes, so what?
And my hair isn't blond or bleached or colored, so what???!!!!!!

I AM still from some country where i have to burn a huge freaking hole
through my damn pocket just to get a peek of my home!!!!

Those shallow minded bitches and morons,
it was as if they never seen one before! I mean, do they think they get laid by some MEG-HI-KO (that's how they pronounce MEXICO, not MASIKHO,FYI!!) buff dude named
ANTONIO? Or hey, there's also a CHRIS from PA-REE (That's PARIS, pronto!) whom they assume is real good at tongue (That means FRENCH KISS).

Oh Great Mighty God, those primitively minded bitches and morons are seriously crazy.
Who am i not better than they are? Huh?
I mean, yeah, i might be writing this out of jealousy of those liquid brains admiritation towards "FOREIGNERS",
BUT come on, seriously, i'm way better than they are.

ICC - International Cultural (CRAPPY) Camp

I just woke up with an aching and stiff body,
and a pang of anger that i really need to spill it out somewhere.

I was a group leader for this ICC thing ISC organized.
And so, i was required to learn several dance moves,
like the famous Papaya Dance which everyone (literally!) in Philippines know.

And guess what, after all the hard work i've done, humiliation i endured,
the sweat, the embarrassment, when i went on stage to perform with the other 7 leaders, i was push down the stage like an idiot just because they THINK i don't know how to dance.

I mean, think of how humiliated i was, to be ask to get off the stage.
Anyway, the dance thing is just one small portion from my list of dissatisfactions over this crappy event that cost NT500 and worth nothing in terms of the meaning and aim.

I don't even know where to begin with the whole misinterpretation of the "ICC" theme.
I thought if you wanna introduce international cultures to the kids, you're suppose to go international! Instead, even i'm really embarrass to kept explaining to the camp members that this is from Malaysia, that one's from Malaysia, almost everything are from Malaysia.

So why not just call it a, say..."Malaysia Cultural Camp"? (MCC! Oooh...catchy!"

I was required to show up as early as 8 a.m., sure, it might be an easy task for most, since ALL of them have either
1. A scooter
2. Extra cash to spare for cabbie

Me? I have an old rustic bike that torture me so much i'd rather walk than hop on that f***ing piece of metal. And what's more, even if i showed up, at all, what they'll do is shove me aside and treat me as if i'm invisible/non-existence. So what is the point of me showing up at all?

Waste away my time there while i can snuggle in my bed and read a good book or sipping hot cocoa instead? If you want me to be there, make me useful! I swear, i WILL distance myself from the club if this goes on.

I used to think that being with the other oversea students, either from Malaysia or not will give me a sense of "home", but after months of being with them, i found out that being with the Taiwanese are way better than being with them. At least my Taiwanese friends are trying real hard to make me feel "home-y"

Oh well, i guess even if i sue them or whatever, it won't change their attitude.
Just like the day when i join them to the crappy camp at a beach last 6 weeks ago.
All they do is brush me aside as if i'm someone not worthy in their clique.

My List of Best Albums (Year 2007)

Some Updates (Pt. 2: Noel/New Year Edition)

Well, Christmas is drawing near,
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells....
wait, sigh...that means New Year is coming as well,
another year passes by, looking back, the first 3 quarters of my 2007 was...rough.

Most who supports me back in AIMST knew how bad a situation i was in back then.
I was alone, deprived of any real friendship, even the once my best friend, YP
ditched me for the superficially annoying bastard, W.

I'm really glad, that all the patient, hardwork, and traveling back and forth from Penang-KL
paid off well, resulting in me being here, a new start, a fresh start, and a place where i can be,
if not partially, who i am inside without being tease.

Anyway, last weekend, i received a package from LA,
and guess what, it was from the author of the novel The Front Runner,
Patricia Nell Warren herself!!! I mean, OMG, who (by that, i meant authors FYI)
in the world would give away free books, not one, but four, each and every one of them autographed personally, along with a personal note to a mere fan of hers on the other side of the planet far far away?

And i've checked, all her books cost up to a total of USD +/- 100 AND postal fees that cost
more than 75USD! Really, i felt as if i don't deserve it at all. She's been too kind. As for those of you who haven't read that book before, i would recommend it with all my heart, that you should really read it. If you are a schoolmates of mine (meaning here in TCU), i've donated one of my extra copies to the ELL department's mini library.

Drop me a line if you'd like to read it, i'd be happy to borrow it for you.

#Ms. Warren, if you're reading this, thank you so much for giving me those books, you have no idea how much that means to me. It's the best Christmas gift i've ever had.

Anyway, my life lately has been...well, fun, i guess, with all the activities,
camps, etc. Although i'm much prefer to hide in my dorm room, a cup of hot cocoa
(That reminds me, i'm out of MILO, well, i'm pretty much broke, so MILO is a no can do)
and a nice tv show. Samantha Who? anyone?
sigh...with the WGA strike going on, i doubt there'll be another new episode at all for the next few months., at least i haven't watch the second season of HEROES since the 4th episode, so there's plenty of shows left for me to fill the void in between the WGA strike..

Speaking about strike, that reminds me, the rally that has been going on since a few weeks back (?) in Malaysia is disappointing. Why? I expect the people of my home country to behave like sane people instead of crazy bonkers going out to protest whatever, and the Government too, doing all sorts of craps. I'm so over the stupid election and politic thingies, cuz i'm bored lamenting on those matters and even if i DO lament on those matters, it won't help anyway.

Oh, before i forget, does anyone know why my economy seat-MAS ticket cost more than NT35000 (that's RM3500)? I mean, the air fare to London doesn't cost that much... But anyway, just curious since i've already decided to cancel the booking and book a much cheaper one from another company.

Well, pretty much that's about whatever that i had in mind or happen to me lately.
Oh, and i found a cute little puppy which i named it Danny. Will post the picture after i taken em'.

Oh well, Hohoho! Merry Christmas everyone!
And best wishes for the coming year.

Christmas Glitter Graphics

That's all! Once again, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year,
and i got to resume watching SANTA CLAUSE 2:MRS. CLAUSE now. Hehe...
Will probably lie in bed later, listening to Josh Groban's Noel.

Some updates

Last night, i went through my older posts out of extreme boredom,
and was surprise to find that most of them consist of:
1.) Complains & lamentation
2.) Youtube videos.

And it bothers me that it's been a while since the last time i have
the initiatives to post anything at all.

So, lately i've been getting back most of my reports and
test papers, and surprisingly, most of my result turns out better than i expected them
to be, like my literature paper, i actually got a 71, while 95% of my classmates failed.
The only thing i regretted is that i didn't put more effort on the terminology part.

For the past few days,
i've been doing a bunch of volunteering works,
one of them being helping out with the Malaysian Singaporean kids who came here for
a 2 weeks chinese learning camp.
It was fun, but the more time i spend with those kids,
the more i wanna cry, since i missed the familiarity of my home.

I also happened to be the host for a Study abroad campaign,
which i did ok, but i was surprise that i actually have the guts to stand in front of a bunch of people and babbling non-stop.
Like last evening, for example,
i was surprise that i actually went out on the stage in front of an auditorium
to talk on the department i enrolled in and my experience etc, without a thought of
how scared i was.

Well, i guess i found a bit of who i am that i didn't know of
just in a couple days.

The weather for the past week or so have been real cold,
the coldest being last Wednesday and Thursday.
Ah well, nothing really big, just feel like being in a giant air-conditioned space, that's all.

Guess that's all.

Winter is Coming

Hermes whisper...
"Hark! Winter's coming!"

Snow white gown,
sewn by the very Gods and Angels,
guided by the Goddess of handicrafts,
Pallas Athena...

Breath of chills,
that brings death that lead to life,
and the dead and revival of Persephone,
daughter of Demeter,
soul ferried to the land of death.

Her beauty,
so exquisite, air turns into tiny flowers of all
shapes, to celebrate her arrival.

All fauna dies,
for they waited for 9 months,
full of anxiety, and insomnia,
that lead to their eventual death.

winter is here,
chilling all lives with her exquisite beauty,
though deadly, yet mark a new beginning,
for lives that is to come upon her leaving.

Leona Lewis - Bleeding Love

The official video of the song Bleeding Love
by UK's X-Factor second season winner Leona Lewis.

Quite a meaningful video.
Although i couldn't get if the video
and song is about praising abusive/distorted relationships
or the other way around.

A Very Pickler Christmas

Anyway, this a clip of Kelly Pickler desperately tryin' to figure out what to buy for Jay Leno's Christmas present back in Christmas 2005. So she went to New York city asking everyone on the street (literally) what should she get for Jay.

I know, Christmas is still one and a half month away, but Thanksgiving is drawing near.
So i thought i should kinda spice up some festive mood now.

I love Kellie, she's so...ditzy and weirdly cute.
Although i hate her new hairstyle.

Apakah Yang Menjadikan Kita Anak Malaysia?

What makes us Malaysian.
MAS [Malaysia Airlines] Merdeka commercial.

Really, what makes us Malaysian.
To be frank, after 1/2 semester @ 2 months here,
the feelings of homesickness has becoming more and more excruciating.

I mean, yeah, for example,
Taiwanese are way polite than we Malaysians are. I mean, i still couldn't get use
to not hearing shouts of "Kopi Peng (iced coffee), Milo Peng (iced milo)etc.
You will be greet with a loud and polite "Welcome" the moment you step near the
shops. Even after you're done, they will bid you sincere thanks.

But being loud, a little yucky (duh, Malaysian restaurants reuse all their utensils)
and among others, but isn't that are the things that give us a really unique

Okay, i know i kinda posted something on how i hate the politics and
racism stuff in Malaysia, but by setting them aside,
there's the friendliness, the warm feeling of the weird "rojak (mashed up)"
language. Where in the world would you find a country where everyone speaks
in a language made up of up to 5 language? (Chinese, Malay, English, Hokkien, Canton)

Here's an example.

"Why you like that one?"
"Want to got to the mamak to get teh tarik? (Indian milk tea)"
"Lu punya anak pukul wa punya anak!"
"Mana eh ane kuan eh? Mai la, aiyo!"
"Amoi, ai beh roti mai?"

See, we Malaysians are unique in many ways.
It's what distinguished us from being stereotypes.
I see how Taiwanese are so proud at their own language,
they scrutinize my way of speaking. I even hurt my tongue trying to speak in a
fake Taiwanese accent.

Despite our occasional rudeness, strict religion values,
we are still Malaysian, and it is up to us to protect our unique styles and ways of living.

(I know the post sounds crappy since i post this on a slightly chilly, sleepy afternoon. Sorry about that.)

Sophie Monk poses naked to promote vegetarianism

Sophie Monk poses naked to promote vegetarianism.

Australian pop singing sensation and actress Sophie Monk is as compassionate as she is beautiful. That's why she jumped at the opportunity to speak up for animals by shedding her clothes and posing nude in a bed of chili peppers alongside the tagline "Spice Up Your Life—Go Vegetarian" in one of PETA's sexiest vegetarian PSAs to date.

As a longtime vegetarian, Sophie wants fans to know that giving up meat is one of the best things you can do to "spice up your life." Eating a diet of vegetarian foods will give you more energy, help you stay trim, and improve blood flow to all of your body organs.

"If you are going to take your clothes off for something, it better be a good cause," says Sophie in her interview with PETA. And a good cause it is! Going vegetarian will not only help spice up your own life, it's the best thing you can do to help the environment and save billions of animals from suffering in factory farms.

Busy, tired, cranky, BAD GRAMMAR!!

I've been so busy and cranky lately
all i could think of is chew on
lots and lots of Pringles that make my
belly swell up like a huge balloon.

Seriously, binge on at least one whole
tube of carbs everyday isn't the best
way to look good. Now i have to suck in
my breath just so i can fit in to my
jeans. Geez...

And not to mention the source of all the
excessive binge, the mid terms.
I thought it'd be a piece of cake,
and believe me, it was, and still is,
just all the stupid questions MOST of my
classmates hurled at me made me question
myself if i truly am prepared.

For example, i got so tired of
a couple zillion questions on
i myself am now confuse on the plot
of the poem. Why can't they just Google
the interpretation of the poem up themselves?!

And all the stupid grammar lessons
actually helps in making my grammar
from bad to worst. I mean, i never really
care about those grammar stuff,
all i do was using my own instincts,
like if it sounds right,
it's always right.
Things changed ever since i was forced
to read all the grammar crap.

I nearly fainted yesterday after getting
back my assignment on paragraph
writing. All the red inks smeared across
the sheet makes the A on top of the paper
seems worth a pile of shit.

Well, whatever, hope i won;t lost my
mojo on my English prowess, since that's
like the only thing i'm really proud of.

Oh, well, working on my Feminism project now.
Why do women dress up? And does the physical
appearancesit really matters?

Oh, and Mythology too!
Apparently Apollo is bisexual,
and that Zeus is a monster.
All the greek romance makes me
wanna puke.

Ah, and then there's classical
literature! Sheesh, Epic of Gilgamesh,
The Iliad, The Odyssey...

My life is filled with never ending
crap from centuries ago.
Hey, if the Greeks invented all the
myths, does it mean that
the future generation might have to
study Pokemon, Final Fantasy etc????

在日本发生了一件千真万确的事:有人为了装修家里,拆开了墙;日式住宅的墙壁通常是中间架了木板后,两边批上泥土,其实里面是空的。他拆墙壁的时候,发现 一只壁虎被困在那里一根从外面钉进来的钉子钉住了那只壁虎的尾巴。那人见状,既觉可怜又感好奇,他仔细看看那根钉子,天啊!那根钉子是十年前盖那房子的时 候钉的。到底怎么回事?那只壁虎竟然困在墙壁里活了整整十年!黑暗中的墙壁里的十年,真不简单。不对呀?他继而寻思,尾巴被钉住了,一个步子也跨不出的这 只壁虎,到底靠什么撑过了这十年?他于是暂时停止了装修工程它到底吃什么?他要一探究竟。过了不久,不知从哪里又钻出来一只壁虎,嘴里含着食物...啊! 他一时愣住了,这是什么样的情啊?为了被钉住尾巴而不能走动的壁虎,另一只壁虎竟然在十年的岁月里一直不停地衔取食物喂它。我听了以后,很感动!也不去想 它们之间的关系是亲子,朋友,异性,手足.........在人类的社会中随着计算机的普及,人与人获取相关的信息更快速,但是人与人之间的距离是否也越 来越接近呢?...

Simple Plan - Untitled

Just like to share this video with you guys.
It's the music video of the song Untitled by the
band Simple Plan.
Since they release their latest single
today, entitled When I'm Gone,
i figure why not post an old video of them to
celebrate their comeback as i'm a huge fan
and it so happens i'm in love with this song.

It goes to show how much damage
could cause by DUI (Driving Under Influence]
Once the damage is done,
not only you ruined people's lives,
you ruined yourself as well.

British English vs. Malaysian English

Who says our English is teruk? Just see below - Ours are simple,short,concise, straight-to-point, effective etc.........


Britons: I'm sorry, Sir, but we don't seem to have the sweater you want in your size,
but if you give me a moment, I can call the other outlets for you.
Malaysians: No Stock.


Britons: Hello, this is John Smith. Did anyone page for me a few moments ago?
Malaysians: Hello, who page?

Britons: Excuse me, I'd like to get by. Would you please make way?
Malaysians: S-kew me


Britons: Hey, put your wallet away, this drink is on me.
Malaysians:No-need, lah.


Britons: Excuse me, but do you think it would be possible for me
to enter through this door?
Malaysians: (pointing the door) can ar?


Britons: Please make yourself right at home.
Malaysians: Don't be shy, lah!


Britons: I don't recall you giving me the money.
Malaysians: Where got?


Britons: I'd prefer not to do that, if you don't mind.
Malaysians: Don't want la...


Britons: Err. Tom, I have to stop you there. I understand where you're
coming from, but I really have to disagree with what you said about the issue.
Malaysians: You mad, ah?


Britons: Excuse me, but could you please ! lower your voice,
I'm trying to concentrate over here.
Malaysians: Shut up lah!


Britons: Excuse me, but I noticed you staring at me for some time.. Do I know you?
Malaysians: See what, see what?


Britons: We seem to be in a bit of a predicament at the moment.
Malaysians: Die-lah!!


Britons: Will someone tell me what has just happened?
Malaysians: Wat happen Why like that....


Britons: This isn't the way to do it here let me show you,
Malaysians: like that also don't know how to do!!!!


Britons: Would you mind not disturbing me
Malaysians:Celaka u

Britney Spears [BLACKOUT]

This is the new cover? Fabulous! (can't believe i use that word...)

Gosh, i'm so in love with her latest album,
so much i forgave all the s**t she did like
not wearing any panties and dropping her
sons clonking their fragile skulls.


Anyway, BLACKOUT is her much anticipated
5th studio album since the last album,
In The Zone, which was released 4 years ago.

12 new songs with 4 bonus tracks,
i've heard all the tracks, except for Outta This World,
which i'm still searching.

Tracks which i'm head over heels in love with?
Freakshow, Toy Soldier, Gimme More, Hot As Ice, Everybody, Piece Of Me, Get Back, Radar

Britney really hits all the right spot this time.
It's Britney Bitch!!
So, go buy, steal, anyhow, anyway,
definitely have to check it out!!

My Roommates: Part 2

First of all,
i wanna apologize for what i wrote a couple post back,
regarding my current roommates.
And also,
i wanna thank them for being understanding and
friendly to me, despite all the stuff i wrote.

it just so happens when i feel like i wanna
lament on some stuff that i'm not very
happy of, and it got so out of control i simply
blurp out whatever and even exaggerate the whole

That is why,
to my roommates,
i'm glad you guys took me under your wings,
truly, i feel more accepted than anywhere else when
i'm with you guys, even the ISC made me feel like as
if i'm an outsider.
You guys care for me, laugh with me,
talk to me, and i'm glad i have the honor to
listen to you guys talking about your
dilemma, and maybe that means you guys
trust me a lot and love me dearly,
and that really means a lot to me.

Britney Spears new album [BLACKOUT] commercial

Umbrella [Vanilla Sky's Cover]

Another cover of the monster hit of 2007, Umbrella
by the band Vanilla Sky.

I kinda liking this version,
and it's so...gay, it gives me the creeps.

My Roommates

I received a comment last night from Ah Bong,
asking me why i hate and like my roommates at
the same time.

Sure, i have a crush on one of them,
and sure, i kinda like them,
because they care for me, buy food for me,
ask me to visit their hometowns etc.

It's just, sometimes, i felt,
neglected. It's like, whenever they talk to me,
it never got far from what i'd like for dinner
or where i'd like to have dinner, or
asking for help in their homeworks which
due that very HOUR it's suppose to be handed in.

Sometimes, things do get a fresh turn,
them talking on their personal stuff.
Like...this cute girl, that cute girl,
family, this and that. Which annoys me.
I mean, hello, yeah, i a a nice guy,
and i know i always listen, but does anyone listen to
yours truly talking about my problems before?

And things are even worst whenever they talk about
sports, i'd get totally left out, as if i'm invisible.

See the point of my love-hate relationship with them?
They talk to me when there's SOMETHING,
but ignore me when there's gossips and sports.
Although i'm glad about the sports part,
as wouldn't have to endure the pain of listening to
testosterone induced stuff.

But please,
ask what and how i feel sometime.
I am a foreigner, who is gay,
who hates sports, who has a relatively small
socializing scale, and a quiet personality.
Those mentioned above are enough to
warrant me all the rights to
have someone to blabber to.

But no, instead,
i have to listen to THEM!!!!

Saturday, October 20, 2007


I went to the teacher's lounge yesterday,
to MR. DB's own office
(hey, every lecturer/Prof. gets their own private office)
and was going to have a chat with him, and get some
extra reading materials from him. (Odyssey!)

So i went to his office, and there was someone else in there,
and when he saw me, he flashed this really adorable
smile at me, y'know? And all i could do was blabbering non stop.
Here's a recap of my conversation with Mr. DB.

"um, uh, i, uh, um, guess you're occupied or something,
so uh, i guess...um, next week? i mean i'll see you...uh...next week..?"

And he was like,

"could you give me a moment please?"
"deng yi xia"

And that got my feet wobbled.
Anyway, i waited for like another 15 minutes or so,
he invited me in.

So, next thing was that he was commenting on the weird
black dots and grainy mouse poo thingie on the floor.
It was awkward, and he was this close to me,
i can even smell his breathe (musky, sweet)
(damn, i feel like i'm writing porn)
And he backed away, and i cleared my throat,
and then i looked at him,
and i was staring at the greenest eyes i have ever seen in
my live. I mean, it's sort of jade mixed with
the color of lush green fields..

And i was like...sort of a faze,
a dream or something.
All i could do was balbbering a lot of "uh(S)"
and "um(S)".

And after i got the reading materials i requested,
we just...well, it goes like this.

me: "Uh, ok then. thank you so much, and sorry to bother you.."

DB: "Ok then. Anything else ? i have a lot of other books,
but they were from the library, so maybe we can go there together
sometime, and i have a scooter.."

me: "Whoa, ok. Um.. when?"

DB: "Well, whenever you're free. Do you have my number? 09xxxxxxxx"

me: "Uh, thanks, um... ok then. I'll see you on Monday"

DB:" Sure, Wyatt. Come by anytime. Maybe yo could give me a oral
report sometime?"

me:"Sure i will. Thanks again"

So, he walked me to the door, and when i press my hand
on the door frame, his hand brushes on mine,
and that got my face blushy and there's like a bunch
of butterflies in my tummy making me excited and sick at the same
time which makes me wanna puke.

So, that's about all. My first chance,
i blew it. Darn. I really wasn't looking for any
physical excitements, don't get me wrong,
but my crush for him is...i don't know how to
explain this, mutual? Maybe.

I was on the verge of kicking myself on the backside.
Sheesh... But i have his number. That's a great thing
right? And he did asked me to pillion riding with him
to the library of the central school area.

That should meant something right?

Sports? Academic?

Ok, before any of you blast me with a bunch of crap
like "Oh, we need sports in our lives" or whatever,
i have had enough of the students here taking sports activities
more seriously than their academic performances.

I mean, the reason i pulled down the freaking post on
how bad their English are were because i thought, ok, they
are nice, sweet, yadda, yadda!
Really, they make no effort at all to improve!!!!

All they do is a bunch of never ending strings of
basketballs, volleyballs etc!!!
I mean, ok, a few match a month just for fun might
not be such a bad idea, although i hated any sports for
that matter. What irks me is that how serious they
take on stupid games like these!

Who on earth ends a basketball match with a bunch
of dramas, feuds and disputes!! Sparks (definitely not the colorful ones)
were flying even among the teammates! That's pathetic!!
And i'm had it listening to them complaining on how
their feet ache and sore after the vigorous sports activities
that literally tore their ligaments apart! Why complain if
you wanna torture yourself in the first place??

And not one person in class makes any qualms on
how their shitty quiz's grades will appear on their transcript!
How ironic since the last time i checked,
i'm studying English Language and Literature,
not sports science, for christ sake!!

And there's this dude with too many X hormone in his
sex hormone, who goes around insulting others with his
insulting remarks, and a bad ass attitude to go with.
So who does he think he is? Huh? Better than anyone else?
I'll show him what is the meaning of "better".

Oh, here it goes again,
my roommates are talking about sports again.
The stupid upcoming basketball match!
Sheesh, my ears are literally bleeding.

Bukit Mertajam aka. Tua Sua Ka aka. 大山脚

I spent my whole life under the mountain. It sadden me that i'm no
longer be able to look at the beautiful mountain when i wake up everyday.
The lush paddy field reminds me of the route me and my family take
every time we went to my grand parents house.

I misses my hometown, the
kuey teow (炒粿条)
Curry noodle(咖喱面)
Roti canai(印度煎饼)
Nasi Lemak(椰浆饭)
Fujian noodle (福建面)

Ok, i'm gonna stop now.
I know i sounded pathetic.
All i think of is food and more food.

Glass shattering

Just thought i share with you guys.
I have these weird fantasy (ok, fetish)
of glass shattering.

Don't ask me why.
The only thing i know is that
i always picture a self imagined scene of a music video
with glass shatters around Kelly Clarkson
whenever the second last verse of "Here i am, once again"
Weird huh?

And there's another thing.
I love it whenever there's glass shatters in a tv show or something.
For example. Those who watch Ghost Whisperer might know
in the last episode of the first season,
a plane crash occured and the windows of the shop houses
behind Melinda smashed due to the vibration.
And that got me real excited.

Do i sounded nuts?
Because i feel freaky of my weird fetish of
seeing glass shattering into smithereens.


Of Relationship and being Gay.

It's been a while since the last time i post any
relationship related stuff. Well, the previous
post wasn't so much of a relationship post as all i
did was writing bad stuff about my ex.

It's been a whole two years,
and i have to say, finally, i'm really through
with it. I've deleted the last ever sms he sent me
which i preciously saved in my phone for 2 years.
It just hit me this morning, it's The day,
that i have to let go, since it's not like he'll
even care less if i keep the sms for the rest of
my life. From now on, i won't care a bit if he
screw his life. Heck, i don't care if he turn into
the devil himself...oops, Steve Jobs (founder of
Apple Inc.)

Ever since i came here, i have crush on 3 particular
person. My lecturer (hereinafter known as DB),
an Italian transfer student (P) and my roommate (R).

I guess part of the reason i had a crush on my lecturer
Mr. DB is because he's cute, he looks sensitive,
he's soft spoken, and like i mentioned before, the killer eyes,
that is both soft yet...mysterious in a way that is inexplainable.
But hey, nothing will happen (although deep down, i do
wish for something to happen, hahahahaha!!!)
since i have no idea how old he is, and he's my lecturer,
for God's sake. A great friend maybe, since we had a
great conversation in MSN 2 days ago.

Hey, stop accusing me of being a slut or something for
having a crush on my lecturer. Don't you straight people
have a crush on your teachers before? Duh!

Anyway, Mr. DB is clearly out of the league.
So, it goes down to Italian P and Taiwanese R.
Which doesn't look good as P will only be here for 2 months,
and R is definitely straight to the core of his bone.
Heck, i even help him to pursuit a girl he have a
crush on. I kinda have this feeling he knows
my orientation as he likes to ask me for my opinion on
how to dress sharp and smart.
(roll your sleeve, not folding them, and leave the 1st button off!)
(Black looks good on him!!)

So, that's about the closest thing of a relationship i had in years.
A guy might hope, but i have this feeling...tired, maybe?
Or it's just simply that i realize my perspective are something
else important?

I haven't really told anyone about my orientation here,
i'll leave them to discover themselves. Not that i'm
afraid or whatever, it's just i don't wanna go through whatever
i endured last year. It also breaks my heart that some
people here make fun of gay people.
They just don't understand how hard it is being one.

That is why i state clearly on my profile that i am gay,
take it or leave it. Your choice.

Britney's New Album, Blackout's cover??!!

Oh my God. Someone should really get their things on
and sue Jive Record/Zomba for the hideous album cover!

First the awful, cheap and poorly made video, and now this?!
I mean, after years of bad press and bad marriage and a handful of
lawyer papers, it's good to see she gets her feet back on with the smash hit
Gimme More (which is find addictive, It's Britney, Bitch!),
but it seems the record company doesn't even care about the
most basic stuff. Album cover, and the video! Geez...

Let's hope they change the darn eye sore.
Heard it's the official cover, since Sony BMG Germany announce it today.
Sigh... Britney, my heart goes out to you.

Album Review: Jennifer Lopez - Brave

"First single from upcoming Brave—follow-up to her March number-one Spanish bow Como Ama Una Mujer—is a satisfying, flamethrowing pop-urban pearl befitting top 40 hits from Rihanna and Kat DeLuna. J.Lo may now be following the footsteps of a new generation of pop stars, but there's no shame in that. Not since 'Waiting for Tonight' has she served up a song with such potential to rally long-term play, not to mention imminent remixes for the dancefloor. Let's hope her successful return sans rapper will signal to all that it's high time for change—for good. 'Do It Well,' well done." — Chuck Taylor of Billboard.com

Ok, usually i don't dig J.Lo's music,
no offense, i always thought her ego is as big as her famous bum.
but i gotta be honest, i'm head over heels in love
with this one. I just got the entire album
(including the iTunes Pre-Order bonus track]
a few days ago, and i might say the entire album
really got my feet working.

Hold It Don't Drop It [It's on the top spot of Billboard hot 100 dance chart!]
Do It Well [1st single, hot song, hot video]
Frozen Moments [iTunes bonus track, dancey]
Brave [a beautiful dance ballad]
Be Mine [Dance-y R&B]

The one listed above are some of my personal favorites,
but the one track that i absolutely head over heels madly
in love with is track no.7, which goes by the title
Mile In These Shoes.
One would remember the snippet of the track was used
in the promo for the 4th season of Desperate Housewives.

I don't know why, there's something about that
song...addictive. Hope they'll consider release that
track as a single. With a couple remixes and a video to go
with it, no doubt it'll do well.

With Brave,
Jenny from the block has got her thing back, for good.

Kelly Clarkson - Don't Waste Your Time

This is one of my favorite track from Kelly Clarkson's My December.
The album isn't that bad, really. In fact, it took me some time,
but it grows on me.

My Bad

I hate my blogs layout.
I write crap most of the time.

But that's not gonna change anytime soon.
I like how things are as it is.

MadTv iPhone Parody

Now this is funny. Hahahahaha....

A night at a KTV

I went to one of Hualiens hippest and trendiest (i presume...) KTV in the city center
last night with a bunch of my classmates. It was fun (sort of), and believe me or not,
being an obedient kid all my life, i never ever been to one of those place before, so it's
aort of new to me. Ha-ha...

Although i have no idea most of the time what in the world are my friends yodeling
since i never listen to any Chinese songs except for the very (i mean very, very!) old ones
or those from the 90s', when brainless pop music is still absent from the whole music scence.

Anyway, i was force to sing Avril's Girlfriend. Geez... That's the first time ever
i sing in front of so many people. Kinda weird.

All in all, it was a fun night out. Though i was snoring my way to dreamland
half the time.
Well, this is yours truly, i bet i was drooling then. Ha-ha... Hey, i'm not the only guilty party on the scene, Viecie the Indonesian was snoring like a pig way before i decided to drool.
Went to McD for breakfast. Everyone was staggering as if they were drunk by then. Had a huge pot of coffee (ok, i'm just being exaggerating), but i still manage to fell asleep on my way back on the cab...Empty street of Hualien (6 in the morning). Seems most of the shops are close since it's their National day.

Chai Kuey (菜粿)

I missed the CHAI KUEY my grandma used to make for me and my brothers. I never get tired of the small, dumpling like cakes filled with ku-chai (chives) or mang-kuang (don't ask me what it's called in English, turnip? But it's tasteless...)

Hui Yi trying to talk

KUALA LUMPUR: Heart transplant patient Tee Hui Yi cannot speak well with a tube in her mouth so she communicates by writing on a whiteboard.

“Sometimes she tries to remove the tube but we stop her. So she writes on a whiteboard. She tells us that she is in pain,” said her mother Dina Bato Sam Bua at the National Heart Institute (IJN) yesterday.

MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting, who visited the 14-year-old girl, handed a Thank You card and a copy of his open letter of gratitude published in The Star yesterday to the 34-member IJN team that carried out Hui Yi’s double heart transplant.

Recovering: Hui Yi receiving visitors at IJN yesterday. They are (from right) Dr Fong, Dr Chua, Ong, Wong Sek Hin and Wendy Ong. With them are Tee and Dina Bato.
He commended the team, led by chief cardiothoracic surgeon Datuk Dr Mohd Azahari Yakub, for their commitment and excellence.

Together with his wife Datin Seri Wendy Ong, Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek and wife Datin Seri Wong Sek Hin, and Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri Dr Fong Chan Onn and his wife Datin Seri Tan Lay Hwa, they visited Hui Yi at the intensive care unit.

Ong encouraged her to be strong and told her that Malaysians were praying for her recovery.

He later presented a fruit hamper and a teddy bear to Hui Yi’s parents.

“Do not worry,” he assured Dina Bato and her husband Tee Ah Soon. “The IJN team is very professional. They are giving their best to your daughter.

“The people are very concerned. We are praying for her,” he said.

IJN’s Heart Lung Transplant Programme director Mohamed Ezani Md Taib told pressmen that Hui Yi would be taken off the respiratory machine today.

He said Hui Yi, who now weighs 33kg, would be in intensive care for two weeks to avoid infection but doctors would not want her be in there longer than necessary.

Last Thursday, Hui Yi underwent surgery to implant a heart from a 15-year-old boy in Sitiawan who was declared brain dead following a road mishap. Soon after, Hui Yi’s body began to reject the organ.

On Friday, a second heart was brought in from Johor Baru, donated by the parents of a 20-year-old mechanic who was also killed in a road accident.

The IJN surgical team scrambled into action again and performed a second heart transplant on Hui Yi.

Organ donors’ pledges to be upheld by law

KUALA LUMPUR: Family members may have to honour a donor’s pledge to give away their organs to save lives.

The Health Ministry is looking at making amendments to various legislations so that parents and relatives cannot object to the pledge made by an individual of legal age.

“We have to come up with this unfortunately because we feel the time has come to look into it.

“The problem that we face is when relatives and parents object to organ donation.

“They (organ donors) pledge without informing their parents and relatives. So, when it comes to the real harvesting or procurement, there is a problem,” said Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

He said amendments to the Human Tissue Act and Medical Act to compel fam

ily members to honour a donor's organ pledge would only be made if the majority of public agreed to it.

Dr Chua said there was still a lot of fear over organ donation because of religious and cultural dimensions.

Reiterating that all religions in Malaysia allowed it, he said, there had been over 100,000 pledges up to June this year but not all organs could be harvested immediately.

Dr Chua was speaking to reporters at the National Heart Institute after visiting 14-year old Tee Hui Yi, who on Friday underwent a second operation to receive a heart from a 20-year-old mechanic, declared brain dead after an accident in Johor Baru.

A day earlier, Hui Yi received a heart from a 15-year-old boy diagnosed as brain dead but soon after the operation her body started rejecting it.

In 2002, 30 organs and tissues were recovered from various cases (five cases were from pledges).

In 2003, there were 25 recoveries (six), and in subsequent years there were 16 (two), 13 (three) and 25 (one). Until May this year there were seven (three). Some 1,200 kidneys, 700 corneas, 450 hearts and 200 livers are needed annually to save lives in Malaysia.

Dr Chua said it was the responsibility of the attending doctor to inform the next-of-kin of patients certified brain dead that they could donate the organs. (There is now no provision to compel the doctors to inform the families of the donation.)

Dr Chua said the ministry would step up its organ donation campaign to maintain the interest generated from Hui Yi's case.

Book Review: The Tender Bar by J.R. Moehringer

The Tender Bar is J.R. Moehringer's memoir about growing up on Long Island, much of it centered around a bar. After his father attacked his mother when he was an infant, he grew up never knowing his father and living in his grandfather's house with eleven other relatives. His Uncle Charlie was a bartender and J.R. often accompanied him to work. There he learned the culture of drinking and hanging out in bars, and was mentored by a couple regulars who loved to read. He was always taking notes and scribbling down jokes and comments he heard, and even as his life moved away from the bar and he had to face his own drinking problem, the bar always felt like home to him. He lived his mother's dream for him to go to Yale and eventually became a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter. The Tender Bar has received positive reviews with the Rocky Mountain News saying, "Funny, frank, sad and bursting with life, The Tender Bar is irresistible."

I never really like memoirs of any sorts. I mean, far as i can remember,
the last "memoir" i read before The Tender Bar was Marianne Pearl's A Mighty Heart.
But something in me just...snapped when i flip open the book. I'm not a picky person when
it comes to books, but i do emphasis on how the first few page i read affects me.
That's the kind of sensation (sensation? haha!!!) The Tender Bar gave me.

Anyway, i like how J.R. describe the bar, as his home, spiritually.
It hit me as i remember how i love to hang out in a tiny used bookstore
managed by an old guy back in Macalister Street, Penang. Half my books
which consist of rare, out of print, first editions books were given to me by him.
I guess that's the main reason why i'm so crazy on books. Ha-ha...

Anyway, great book. Glad i found this book when i was browsing mindlessly through

Changes of Seasons

Spring passes and one remembers one's innocence
Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance
Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence
Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance.
Yoko Ono, Season of Glass

The weather getting cooler by the day.
Autumn is passing by a lot faster than i thought.

MadTv Spoof -Aren't Asians Great

I don't know if the parody video is praising Asians or just a
plain ol' insult. You decide. Found this video a couple days ago
when i was stuck in my dorm the day typhoon hits.

ABC in Taiwan.

I had this humongous bowl of fruits and ice confectionery for NT50,
and i'll say it's worth every penny. There's like a bunch of pineapples,
watermelons, kiwi, pear, banana etc... And when i say humongous,
it's really, really huge.

Drop by this shop if you ever going to visit Hualien, Taiwan.
The shop is situated on a small lane just across the main Gate of Tzu Chi University,
on Jung Yang Road.
