pekcek




我到底是属于球场的,还是乐室的。

中学同学,肯定炸我,叫我离开球场远一点。

上了大学,不想再次面对建立乐团的痛苦。


进了一个乐团,就要花上无数的心血。

进了球队,也照样要付上一些东西。



我就是不想。


很懒惰。




什么都不想。



我有点多愁善感,



自我pekcek。



不喜欢。







被别人‘讲’,



多几下就开始不爽。




鸡蛋糕。






还有功课要赶。






就这样。

wee waang waaang







(sigh)



at first wanted to and planned to type a whole lot of complaints about my physical condition.




(i'm not going to say i'm fat, just now read someone's blog with the sentence i'm fat presented in various versions, i feel like puking when that particular person looks just greeeeat to me. but that's just a girl being a girl. i do that too heheh)



but the point is, this midterm break's rather physically challenging lo, what with LTC's teambuilding games and all, swimming, and now volleyball training camp.






so...





tangan dan kaki sakit in various places...






: x







so i was just about to type a whole lot of complaints...





when suddenly i thought of others who are not as lucky as i am
to have fun in these places,
or don't even have legs,
or those born blind so they couldn't even see those pretty bruises on themselves...

























darn, i'm lucky.










thanksgiving of the day:


thank you Lord
for giving me such a wonderful roommate
to tapau a nice dinner(星光豆腐饭chewwanjie do you remember~?) for me
so the invalid won't need to leave the room
heeeeheeee.

CheckingItOut



teehee, went to check out the campsite for the orang asli camp ICF & Malaysian Care will be organizing on late november.

it's at Port Dickson, the place for all affordable camps, and this particular campsite is called Golden Sands assembly or something like that.

hmm, about this camp, its for the orang asli youth, and the theme is 'Overcoming Temptations'!
what better way to overcome temptations than with Jesus with you all the way?
there're gonna be lots of games and this cool 'choice' tunnel for them to do~

heehee~ looking forward although we're only faccies~



anyways, part of the itinerary is 'Port Dickson's army museum'.





sounds boring right?









No!




its actually quite cool and fun!


haha, i think its quite new,
and the place has loads of planes, tanks, war stuff i think guys would love~

nice museum too, better than i thought~





not much pictures to show though...

nice part of the fighter plane. girls only notice artwork. machine work? leave it to the guys..


the outfits Malayan soldiers wore back then. the cap was purposefully placed senget by me~

artistic Dutch gun on the left, ugly Malayan gun on the right.
Form over function, i see~


union jack !
this was the british part of the museum~






and then...

we entered the communist tunnel~

its this place remade to look like how those communists lived during that time:


bras and polka dot shorts~


i simply can't imagine living under those conditions. there was also this scary 'emergency room' area for those hurt and wounded. very bad medical facilities. poor communists, the sacrifice they made for Malaysia's independence from the Japanese :(








next stop: the campsite!


long flight of stairs down to the beach area~really windy, loved it :)



nice place, seems like a scene right out of some lion king movie, for animals or centaurs to have the annual meeting~ with this huge tree over everything..........what a tranquil place...





short brainstorming meeting later......















beach time!

li ann and random camp ground rules~

and they played frisbee...


my hair colour is looking lighter now... that day, someone asked me this:

'what happened to your hair?'
'why is it.....*long pause, frowns, can see the brain churning*.............not black?'









HAHAHA....






whatever, after that had totally gorgeous dinner at this yong tau foo place i've been going to ever since i was a kid~

will intro and do some PR for it one day,


soon.



hehe, that's all, after that we went back to inti since i had this volleyball training camp to attend.







haiz, 5 people squeezed in the backseat for coupla hours is no fun experience....











teehee~

HAHAHA

hahaha.












(this is one of the things i like about mass comm,
i might've chosen it if courses were open for porcupines)

model?







ohkay so it's time to update you guys on my supposed modelling experience.

i know last time i posted something about helping kay and all, but it took me some time before i can calm down and come to peace with myself. i've decided modelling is not for me, but this post makes it so much more worse because one of my favourite daily reads include coco rocha, one of the coolest models in living existence (go check out her blog )



background info: Kay's a makeup student at Sense & Style academy, who hosts some sort of show for their students as some kind of graduation showcase. She loved the idea of entering the show so i was roped in to be her model since the 'pro' model she hired was too busy or something like that. when i agreed, i had no idea that it's this show where there's gonna be loads and loads of people and you actually have to walk onstage with tons of stuff on you and etc etc etc.
(if i enter ANTM i would be the first one eliminated for complaining)


so, to emerge winner of the show, makeup artists are judged based on their creations which have to be done in exactly 1 hour and 15 minutes. bear in mind that this isn't the sort of everyday makeup.

its stage makeup where you goop loads and loads of colour and glitter on the model's face like it's an art and craft project. apart from gooping, you have to make sure that it looks really '3D' and blended.
so, ladies and gentlemen, its no easy job.


look at those scary eyelashes. its actually cut out of paper.
the usual type of fake eyelashes sold are not big enough.
haha i'm not wearing contact lenses either cause if i wear them you can't see the whites of my eyes altogether teehee.



(Kay pulled an all-nighter just to complete my dress,
so i felt that she's really tired and lost all her 'oomph'...
i tried my best to encourage her,
but after that i deflated too....
so..in terms of spirit,
i think we lost half the battle)




we reached KLCC at 8 in the morning, models and makeup artists rambling around, most shorter than i expected, i was expecting really really gorgeous models who were at least a head taller than me but hey we're in malaysia so most are around my height, few were shorter than me and a couple being a head taller than me O.o



went backstage for a go-through and some briefing. Backstage is really really cold, i think they're trying to kill off all the models with hypothermia before the actual event itself. most of us models were huddled together. a few were wearing oversized shades. i don't know about you but i have a thing for people who wear shades in dark places. are you really blind cause you're no posh spice. but some models are really funny and friendly lar.

got to know this gorgeous looking girl who (phew same as me) had no experience in modelling. she's studying business admin at Monash, yamcha-ing at Station 1 one day and was approached to help her makeup artist out. lucky loh, i thought i was the only noob there :)



the competition started at dunno what time, ganjeongness with everyone scrambling around to change, attach headdress, apply foundation, start face-painting and whatnot.

haha at this time all the models' faces were still bare,

with small single eyelids and buggy eyes...



when grace koh who tagged along for the day came back,

in her own words,' shocked weih all the girls eyes suddenly so BIG'


HAHAHA





my head dress thing was attached, so i had to bear 5(?)kg of stuff on my head for 3 hours.

i so regretted not joining some tribes for training on how to carry stuff on your head early in my childhood.

just imagine this:
a really really heavy pot of plant with a small base on your head, fastened by 50 pins which were all jabbed in your scalp in a futile attempt to secure that monstrosity, then the whole thing would jerk your whole head, hair, and scalp along in any direction that you would care to tilt your head towards. you move an inch, that thing retaliates by grabbing your scalp. seriously, i thought my scalp wouldn't survive that 3 hours.



i was inwardly apologizing to my scalp for torturing it this way.



man, i'm sorry.




a robot doll with her makeup artist. those robot dolls had swords and guns and other cool stuff. so yeng!


finally the allocated hour is up and everyone has to stop. i couldn't sit on the chair due to my humongous dress, so i could only sink on the floor.

the above and below pics were all taken from my point of view--the floor.



this girl had a cape made of safety pins on her, i saw red rashes on her neck :x
(but at the end her artist won a 'creativity prize' so i guess its worth it)

some sort of little-bo-peep barbie model with a hat,
that hat idea was a stroke of genius since it
wont fall off
at. all.

see all those scary pins? but very chio lo, right before the show some were scrambling for safety pins to fix some last minute problems, haha no problem, just grab off her back...

on the left: me with my unfinished makeup since there's no time left.
on the right: me with the makeup i'm supposed to have on. i lacked another couple of petals on my left cheek.










by then i was just gritting my teeth and counting down the seconds. i also tried to distract myself from the pain by admiring other models.

this show was divided into a few categories, with the main theme being 'doll',
there were 'robot dolls', 'chinese dolls', 'barbie dolls', and 'ghost dolls'.





sorry i didn't take pics of them. i was in a foul mood that day.








i'm a barbie.


ha.ha.







ta-da~




guess which's me?





















come on la guess la don't just keep scrolling down.























ok don't want play already i'm first from left.


see my arm used to hold on to that stupid thing? we were supposed to have 8 poses in all, changing a pose every 10 seconds in a doll-like manner. but damn, when i walked out, my huge dress was wayy too huge and i kept stepping on it and there were so many people out there and some staff were helping me to sort out my dress and the music was so awesome and i was going 'ohshit ohshit ohshit' and i couldn't see anything since i didn't wear my specs or contacts and

basically,










i. freaked. out.







of all those 8 poses i've practiced to doll-like perfection, none of them catered to that monstrosity which teetered on my head and threatened to fall off with every minuscule move.









so basically i made a fool of myself.





and i moved the slowest i could kill myself but the dress so big what can i do ?




ARGH...




and i was at the very front of the stage. smiling like some barbie princess but inwardly cursing.









feeling sorry for myself in general until i saw the girl next to me. haha i know i'm bad to say this but at least i felt better when she posed once. (she made a mistake too she thought she was supposed to go first but at last she just made one pose)





good to know i'm not the only freak.











when i finally finally got backstage in an excruciatingly slow manner (the whole ensemble was killing me by that time) i started crying.

i don't know why i cried. Kay thought it's because the head thing hurt me too much. but actually, i think i cried because i've let her down. i think i f***ed-up majorly. i felt even more ashamed of myself after seeing other models with huge headpieces too. am i the only complainer?

maybe its because the base of my head piece was too small resulting in its instability. so i cried even more when i tried to apologize to her. argh damn stupid moment then. i knew that she was disappointed, i am also disappointed, we couldn't do anything and i just stood there in my 5 inch heels and cried. i couldn't even sit due to that stupid big dress.






after that models and their makeup artists had to go onstage once more for the finale and all stand there while awaiting the results to be announced.


honestly, i felt like i was part of a circus. or a freak show.



people who look like aliens or otherworldly creatures moving slowly, with surreal headpieces and glittering outfits which either amaze you or gross you out.



wow.



i think i would've loved it if i were part of the audience.










after that show ended,i couldn't face Kay and her family.


so i just rushed to meet darling margaret who came to klcc to fetch me to see danni off at klia.





damnit she's leaving for UK !!!!


that sorta puts everything back in perspective doesn't it?







cute passport


one last camwhore together.



last pic of the freeks with raven lee tagged as the oversized baggage.
(she left for johore that morning =[ )




bye dear *sobs*


(kelly tan for your information, she was talking on the phone with you while we were banging on the glass like idiots up there)















to Kay:
i'm not sure whether you would read this or not, but thank you for giving me this chance to experience modelling. for sure i'll not try it again but nevertheless it's a valuable experience. finally i can proudly say 'i tried modelling' hahaha. but for me, its a one time thing.

for you, you'll have to continue doing it. take this as an experience, learn from it. don't always listen to your teacher who may or may not be right.
i believe that you can and you will do it one day.
all the best :)

目瞪口呆是这样子来的。





O.O

wow wow WOWW ! !

words actually can't describe my feelings right now..

today is 20th of October, making it 20-10-2010 and the subject of various facebook status updates.

it's also shirley's birthday~

so eileen asked me out to sorta celebrate her birthday~

originally eileen just wanted to watch this weird chinese movie,

but since its also shirley's birthday, we treated it as an occasion lo~

congrats shirley, you're officially 22 years old :)




anyway, the movie we were supposedly watching is called

'reign of assassins'







starring our very own datuk michelle yeoh~




i wasn't very keen on chinese movies because they always let me down..
with lame predictable storylines and stuff in general......................................
but anyway, since i was the one being asked along, i just went to see how was it............

first, we had dinner at the usual kimgary, shaking with hunger while waiting for our orders...

for the first time i timed their serving...

not bad, 16 minutes to serve everything in one go~

satisfied my craving for the korean stone rice~



then went to lavender to pick up some bread for my highness eunice koh for her breakfast tomorrow...since she hates her job and all, its only fair that i get her something to make her day happier~ its been a long time since i went to that particular bakery, lots of new stuff, i see...



then ........ to the movie...









wow.





pure entertainment.




when the movie ended, i just sat there, heart pounding, unable to leave...




seriously.



ohmigoshohmigoshohmigosh..




itsbeensuchalongtimesincei'vewatchedanygoodchinesemovicesisimplykennotaccepthis.




this movie by John Woo and a new director called Zhao-Ping Su was totally cool to say the least.

it's an action movie, it's a love story, it's a martial arts movie, it's a story of revenge...




The reason that it deserves my praise?

this movie contains:

cool action moves and special effects that don't make you feel they're fake,

full of lenglui actresses who can really act and fight,
UNPREDICTABLE storylines that make you fall out of your seat,

great filming from all angles,

good lines that the actors deliver,not lame stuff like the usual fare they spew,

a good balance of funny scenes in the movie,
(trust me most of the laugh out loud moments in the movie include Barbie Hsu hahaha)

nice deep plots,

a very strong cast (including  戴立忍,余文乐,王学析, 林熙蕾 who weren't in the pic)
see jung woo sung second from the right???? HE'S HOT!!!! no doubt about that~

and a happy ending to boot




*sigh*





as i told you before, its also a love story. at first i was thinking like, hehm, just another shaolin kungfu thing, then i was rather puzzled by the sudden change of pace to make way for the love angle, then after that i was totally immersed in the wonderful gushing river of the story,



all in all, a really really really good story told.












the way the camera was angled wasn't the job of any amateur, it wasn't just another lame action flick, it wasn't Hollywood-wannabe material either.









it. was. cool.




the thing i love most about the movie?

the director had brains.

it wasn't just brawn all the way.
i've watched those lame kungfu movies or chinese war movies that were supposed to be good but they wasted 2 hours to let the audience see fighting fighting fighting and forgot what kind of story they were supposed to be telling.
this movie, apart from cool fighting and good unfake effects,
still delivered the big picture and refused to lose itself in fighting.
the director (who also wrote the script) put alot of meticulous details in it.




ohmigosh i am so in love now. not to mention the main actor was hot too hahaha
(actually the way he was portrayed in the movie wasn't hot, its the way he acted which made him so hot!!!! i know i sound confusing here just watch the movie to know what i mean)




the chinese movie industry, there is still hope in you yet!!!!!!










aaaah, so excited can't sleep. i feel so happy when i have been watching movies that let me down so many times and *pop* out of nowhere comes this kind of totally cool movie that surpasses all expectations and leaves the consumer exceptionally delighted :]







there were some really cool lines in the movie too, but i won't post it here to be spoilers heheh
but just one:

'我愿化身石桥,受五百年风吹,五百年日晒,五百年雨打,但求此少女从桥上走过'

lame translation:
' i am willing to become a stone bridge, 
go through 500 years of sun, rain, and wind,
 just to let her pass the bridge once.'

it was used to describe the degree of love the guy felt in the movie~





go on, watch it, i promise you that you won't regret it.





















(for all those bananas out there,
the subtitling is enough,
the malay couple sitting beside me enjoyed it too)
