A not-so- typical Christmas

It was the 27th, yet my friends are still having friends over for a late Christmas celebration. Got to go to one of my friend's house for food, typical Malay food or what you would find at a gathering: satay, peanut sauce, rendang, sweet sour chicken, mutton curry and lemang. Yummmms ~~ Now that is what I call a feast!

~ Christmas tree ~

Since I have never follow friends out visiting friends during holidays, last year one of my New Year's resolution was to go visiting during the holidays. It was something achievable, something I could actually do and at least say 'I have one under the belt!' proudly. And that I did! I am so proud of myself for accomplishing something I have always failed, year after year. I have visited friends for Chinese New Year, Eid, and now Christmas. I know I am missing a few holidays but that can be improved. :) I have always set out goals and never achieved them. Or sometimes I just forget about them, brush them off, push them under the bed until 24 hours before countdown. Then I'd crawl on my knees, search in vain for the 'list' and realize hey I didn't do any this year. Again.

Ok it is actually not a 'list' but more of a mental thingy... some thing that's always mentally remembered. One of the thing that's been on the 'list' (for 6 years) was to get a boyfriend. I know. So pathetic!XD But it was on there for quite a long time. Like freakin' 6 years! Hell yeah I can cross that out too. I mean, not to sound all desperate or anything, it was something easy achievable mentally challenging and it turned out that it wasn't that hard nor easy. After 6 long years (of not really) searching, I can say I won't be putting that on there ever (hopefully). I have found someone, and I think he is great. :) I know you'd think your significant other is "great" too, but he is great. For me. Cause I have met a few ungreat people in my search for the best possible someone. And I think he surpassed them, by a freakin' lot in terms of zaniness and weirdness. Or maybe I am just easily pleased. (That's what he says! -  anyway, but I like to think as myself as a hard person to please. It gives me power!). I guess the journey to where I am today makes me appreciate the time I've had with myself. With my friends and family. :)

~ Friends for Christmas XD ~

This year, I don't know what I will put under the new year resolution line: will I ask for material things?, power?, money?...I just don't know. :) I want health and prosperity for my friends and family. Maybe some freedom in thinking. :D Or blog a lil more ;). I don't have the most exciting life in the world, unlike some people. :) I am just satisfy with lil things. Maybe I'll travel more...that would be pretty exciting! World, here I come! Orchestra practice has been put on hold, for the last weeks and days before the new year. :)

Who knows, maybe life will bring more surprises in the new year. I know 2009 has been really good to me. :) I am thankful and blessed for everyone that has been in my life, the strangers that has made me happy, that made me laugh. The good and the bad. It is life. It is always there waiting to surprise you. With good things, and bad things. I can't wait go open a new chapter in my life. Move forward...just maybe.. ;).

Happy new year!

Merry Christmas!

....and a happy new year! I think if we had would be about 12 foot by now...I love rain. I would love the snow too. My ultimate dream for next year during this time is to be in Wisconsin with CLK. Hopefully we can celebrate at least one New Year together. That would be wonderful. :)

Happy holidays!

I <3 Jewelries

I know, who in the right mind don't?? CLK knows how much I adore jewelries, especially silvery ones, very exotic and unique and cutesy ones. :D It's in the blood I tell ya. I have come upon this website LuShae Jewelry, and they are giving away some freakin' awesome prize, and use it to buy your own jewelry. :D As you know...jewelries are like trademarks. Everyone has its own style sense and uniqueness. Diamonds, opal, sapphire, pearl...whatever, you name it. :D Jewelries, one of the many best friends I have. (^_~)V

You know it's X-mas when your orchestra practice starts playing the Christmas Song

Yes, it is officially Christmas! Last night we spent 3 hours playing Christmas songs. I get it, it's like 2 weeks before Christmas but well I don't have anything against Christmas I suppose. But I like Christmas songs to be played like in March or June...December is too Christmas-y. I know weird...but we did have fun playing Christmas songs. Songs like Frosty the snowman, Hark the Herald angels sing, O ye faithful (ok I don't know if I spelled it right) and a few other Christmas must-play. I'd put some Christmas songs up but I think it's overrated :P haha.

We did play 3 pieces by Anita Hewitt-Jones. It was fun pieces. I love Ragtime, it just reminds me of fun Autumn evenings, running through the fields...maybe it's just me ;).

Georges Bizet

Georges Bizet's Suite from CARMEN is one of the best pieces I have played as of late, but...I can't find it anywhere (on YouTube!). Maybe I have not been looking properly...but do not fret, I will keep looking...or find another alternative for it. The suite from Carmen comprises of The phantom of the opera and Music of the night, my fave! (Either that or I have the pieces mixed up :P). But I will keep looking.

Other that that, I have some bizarre news I want to share, but not at this moment. I am still thinking on how to go on writing it on paper (haha, paper :P I have not been writing on paper for a while). Been pretty busy lately, since it is Christmas soon, school holiday are such a drag. I want to go to Disneyland!!! (heh out of the blue...)

Piece of the week: Serenade for Strings

Ok, I am guilty for not posting my POW and I am sorry. I have been MIA from my rehearsal for nearly a month and a half and I don't have any new pieces to share. But last Friday I went to my practice and I fell in love with this short but sweet piece. It is by Mozart, enjoy. :)

I am alone...and sick

I think I have a cold. *Sniff sniff* I am here with my kitties (since my parents, sisters and brother are away, visiting my grandparents) I am here alone. Plus being sick, sucks. :( Altho my retail therapy today was ok...bought something for my mum's birthday (belated birthday present :P) and I feel kinda good.

My eyes itches, my nose hurts like I have been swimming for awhile..and the worst part, theres no one to pamper me...why does CLK have to be far away? :( I mish you.

p.s. I am looking for a long hooded cardi...I have found options and am thinking of happy (in sickness).

Oll korrect!

OK! :D Something interesting I read tonight. Have you ever wonder what OK stands for? It's spelled so many ways (that I use anyway :D): OK, o.k., okay, wokeh. I didn't think any of it till I read this interesting answer on Yahoo! Answers.

1839, only survivor of a slang fad in Boston and New York c.1838-9 for abbreviations of common phrases with deliberate, jocular misspellings (cf. K.G. for "no go," as if spelled "know go"); in this case, "oll korrect." Further popularized by use as an election slogan by the O.K. Club, New York boosters of Democratic president Martin Van Buren's 1840 re-election bid, in allusion to his nickname Old Kinderhook, from his birth in the N.Y. village of Kinderhook. Van Buren lost, the word stuck, in part because it filled a need for a quick way to write an approval on a document, bill, etc. The noun is first attested 1841; the verb 1888. Spelled out as okeh, 1919, by Woodrow Wilson, on assumption that it represented Choctaw okeh "it is so" (a theory which lacks historical documentation); this was ousted quickly by okay after the appearance of that form in 1929. Okey-doke is student slang first attested 1932. Greek immigrants to America who returned home early 20c. having picked up U.S. speech mannerisms were known in Greece as okay-boys, among other things.…

H.L. Mencken once described "O.K." as "the most successful of Americanisms," an estimation verified by U.S. troops during the Second World War, who reported encountering the phrase all over the world. Of all the scores of theories (and sub-theories) as to the origin of "O.K.," the most widely heard traces "O.K." to the "O.K. Club," a political committee supporting Martin Van Buren's unsuccessful bid for the Presidency in 1840. The "O.K.," it is said, was short for "Old Kinderhook," Van Buren's nickname.

It appears that this theory is not so much wrong (the "O.K. Club" certainly existed) as it is incomplete. Chances are good the Van Buren's partisans would never have named their club "O.K." had the phrase not already been widely known as an abbreviation of "oll korrect," a humorous misspelling of "all correct." American speech in the early 1800s was awash in similar abbreviations, two of which, "N.G." ("no good") and "P.D.Q." ("Pretty Damn Quick"), are still heard today.

Ironically, while "O.K." didn't save Van Buren's campaign, the campaign gave "O.K." a new lease on life -- until then, it had never been as popular as a competing phrase, "O.W." (for "oll wright"). (By the way, before we start feeling too superior to the cornball 1800s, is "oll wright" really any worse than the "excuuuse me!" or "not!" fads of a few years ago?).…

OK is without doubt the best-known and widest-travelled Americanism, used and recognised even by people who hardly know another word of English. Running in parallel with its popularity have been many attempts to explain where it came from — amateur etymologists have been obsessed with OK and theories have bred unchecked for the past 150 years.

Suggestions abound of introductions from another language, including the one you mention. Others include: from the Choctaw-Chickasaw okah meaning “it is indeed”; from a mishearing of the Scots och aye! (or perhaps Ulster Scots Ough aye!), “yes, indeed!”; from West African languages like Mandingo (O ke, “certainly”) or Wolof (waw kay, “yes indeed”); from Finnish oikea, “correct, exact”; from French au quais, “at the quay” (supposedly stencilled on Puerto Rican rum specially selected for export, or a place of assignation for French sailors in the Caribbean); or from French Aux Cayes (a port in Haiti famous for its superior rum). Such accidentally coincidental forms across languages are surprisingly common and all of these are certainly false. Many African-Americans would be delighted to have it proved that OK is actually from an African language brought to America by slaves, but the evidence is against them, as we shall shortly learn.


It's very interesting I tell ya!!

Happy Blog-a-versary , errmmmm how ever you say it..

Technically, it was sometime this week...but I am a lil slow at updating lately (ha...ever!). But anywho...(my lil cat is sleeping beside me as I typee...awww) yeah, like I said I am freakin' lazy.

My classes this week is like...ughhh. They last till 5, and then traffic. The traffic is really bad where I am. At least when it is peak hour, but then again, where isn't?? Probably somewhere where people don't exceed 100, 000. Maybe in Africa. So I usually stay till closer to 6 o'clock before I make my way back home. Yeah, no traffic but late arrival. I gotta sacrifice something right??

So since this week was my blog first anniversary...I didn't have anything special planned. I mean, I kinda forgot about it till late Thursday. Yep my mom's birthday. Honestly I totally forgot about that too. How bad am I? Mummy I am sorry for forgetting your birthday...but we did make up for it right?? Mom I will get you something you really like! :) Shopping is always a good theraphy...(and will regret when you see the money in your account is getting smaller). Then Friday was my dad's birthday. :) Amazing isn't it?? Their birthdays are just a mere day apart. I suppose it is less than 24 hours. I use to envy them so much but not anymore :D.

Then on the 11th was our 2-months-to-almost-a-year-anniversary. :) Altho I am pretty bum CLK isn't here to celebrate it with me I am shocked how fast a year goes by. It was this time last year, I kept thinking about what would happen to us, except there wasn't an US last year. It was just you and me. Me and you. Me and him. We have gone a long way from being me and you to us. And I am proud of us. :) Us is just a strong word for being just two letters. We have made milestone in the past 10 months, and I can't believe it has been 10 months!! I'm deliriously happy (in the inside) cause I don't have anyone to share my happiness with. And I bet this new year is gonna suck. :( I am hoping next year new year we will spend it together, fingers crossed!

So this week is all about anniversaries and birthdays...and I almost missed it all!! But I didn't :) I am happy to share that I made it happy this week (even tho I had to go to class all day Saturday =_='''). I do have pictures, but they are on my lappie...not here so I will post them maybe tomorrow (hopefully I remember). I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I am off to play Mafia Wars and Farmville on Facebook!!!! :P

Piece of the week: Greatest Hits

I have been away for awhile..actually just here but so busy. Doing this and that (read: not finishing what I have started) but anyway that's typical of me. Ahaha...such a bad habit. Ultimately I have been missing from my Saturday night practices (but come on, it's a Saturday night, I want to go out and do nothing) so I am kinda worried I may not get picked for November/December concert/show/performance. But heck with it. :) I will go to the rehearsal cause I have to love to play my instrument. :D Am a happy camper.

This week I want to share this lovely piece. I love me some Tchaikovsky :D and we have played this piece several times before. And I love it. Short, simple and sweet. Hope you enjoy it, Tchaikovsky's Greatest Hits. **Pssst, fyi my birthday present has not arrived yet, I I am asking for a bigger present :P

Monday, October 26, 2009


Saturday morning I woke up after a restless night (talking to CLK and sleeping at the same time) and muse came to see me (not the band, altho if they did come that would've been AWESOME!). I wrote this in a course of 30 minutes:

it was cold,
the bed beside me yet i felt warm.
i woke up to the cold rainy day
but i feel the sun, shine,
i sit alone most times but i dont feel lonely,
people tell me i laugh to myself but i know you are there beside me,
everyday i awake to the thought of how great we are together,
you are always that someone that keeps me flying and that left me smiling,
and long ago i realized
i love you ...

Muse don't ever leave me...

More kitty pictures

I just want to share some kitty pictures I have accumulated throughout the weeks (months, years?). Ok, not years...but maybe months. Since I just let go Happy Feet, a few of my female cats gave birth. Yeah you heard me, a FEW. A few meaning a couple, meaning exactly 3 cats. 3 FREAKIN' CATS! But I just lost a lil kitten a few days ago. I guess the mother wasn't paying attention to it like not giving it milk and just isolating it from it's other 2 sibling kittens. How CRUEL! Maybe it was sick from the day it was born...but I am glad it died. I am over my head...with cats!!! Like seriously. I just entertain you with some pictures. :)



My lil Sunflower


One of the many pictures I have of Happy Feet and Sunflower...they were so happy together.

I'll share more pictures when I remember where I saved them. :)

Piece of the week: Camille Saint-Saens

This week I have a cute little long piece to share. It is so cute :D. They even tell me before we started playing. :D So listen to my pick this week. It is a complete version of Camille Saint-Saens 'Le carnaval des animaux'. (I am assuming it is translated to 'The carnival of animals' :D) Really adorable.^^ (I have only gone to my practice after weeks of absence...I miss you Ms violin!!)

Thursday, October 22, 2009

We bid farewell... Happy Feet. :( *running to a corner and crying hysterically* Ok, I haven't talked about Happy Feet on here...much or at all. But I did mention that my cat (Vee aka Momma) had 2 kittens right? (And yeah I forgot the pictures...dang it) and the kittens are (or is) 4 months old this 26th October. :( Is is because Happy Feet have left us and gone to a better home, with my friend E and her husband (errr I forgot his name, but I can assure you he is a nice guy :D). So I should be happy right??


I am happy, but at the same time I am sad too. I love Happy Feet. Everyone loves Happy Feet. Who in their right mind wouldn't miss this cute little face:

or this:

Isn't that adorable?? She is a cutie...I miss her already...but she is in a good home. And I hope she grows up healthy and strong. We miss you Happy Feet!

Ok...5 minutes ago I had no idea what a Bumpit is, am I too late to say.. Ohhhhh that thing. I didn't think they existed. Ok, anything can exist in this century but I never thought anything of it. I mean I know they do it the 'old fashion' know they puffing your hair out with combs that will always gets it tangles at the end. I never do that. Just never appealed to me.

I have naturally wavy/curly hair (which I despise, but I absolutely LOVE now!) and I have never thought to volumize my hair that way. Like hello? My hair is very messy, frizzy and 'volumize' already..why would I want to destroy frizz it even more? You know what I mean...have it altered to make you look and feel good. Yeah I know, I am such a party pooper. Anywhooo, I guess I never really take the time to make myself look presentable -like most people- and hair is just hair (or so I thought). I don't really care to curl, straightened, volumize, do cute things to it until now. Well I still am lazy to do it, but I do have it curled...and it stays a couple of days...pretty cute too. :P

So anyway, Bumpits. Wow, the things people would buy. ;) Yeah well it is an easy way to get great hair (if you have great hair) and a cheap way too. I envy those people with pin-straight hair. How I envy thee!! I had my hair straightened for a whole 5 years, and I tell ya, it is hard to maintain. You'd have to iron it flat when the wave starts to show and every 6 months or so should re-straightened it. My aunt did me good when she kinda break me from the habit of straightening. Now I would love to do it again...but I think they curls makes it sexier :P. Really! I should've listened to my housemate when she said it was sexier...but I do love straight hair too. (I'm just lazy to iron it flat...cause I have thick mane and it takes a really, really long time.)

Ok anyway bumpits (dang I keep on babbling) really is a cool thing, I'd love to try it but...errr...I don't think it would look that good on me. :P Ehehehe...but if you're interested, visit here. I am sure they would come with a similar ones (cheaper and well I said somewhat similar here, when it has reached it's must-haves status).

Here's a picture in case you're wondering:

Birthday week: Over!

Just wanna summed up my birthday week: Nauseated.

I have been literally sick this whole week! And the fact that my birthday present is still floating in the South China Sea (haha, kidding, I hope it is not floating...touch wood) really didn't make me feel any better. I was hoping, really was hoping I'd get my pressie that CLK has sent me about a week and a half ago (ok would be 2 weeks this coming week) which he said would get here within 6-10 days. Hello?! I dunno...I am very skeptical about people saying it would get from point A to point B within a number of days. I mean, the guy at my post office says it would take several weeks for my package to reach him and it only took 7-8 days!! I love our postal system. *hugs* Ok maybe it was sheer luck...I am hoping I would always be this lucky!! Altho I won't try to be cocky next time I send him anything.

Anywhoo...yeah. I got no birthday pressies...*sniff sniff* (that was me sniffing cause I am sad not I am sick) and I don't even know if he remembers to send me my NYX stuffs too!!! WE bought it together, online!!! He said he would sent them with my pressies...sad, sad, sad.

On the other hand I got a birthday cake from my parents today which is Saturday. Yeah they are off by 6 days...but who cares! I still got chocolate cake! Yummmmmm...

So yeah, typical not-so-exciting-my-friend-took-a-rain-check-for-dinner-birthday week...but hoping things will get better this week. Post-birthday week. ^^ Altho I did spent a lot this whole a lot lot (of money =_='''). I bought stuffs...I need.

P.S Something amazing happened during my birthday week. Ok I know I just said it sucked, but this was totally coincidental! Will tell you later....Can't wait!

Piece of the week: Star Wars Theme

Star Wars you say? Yes I say. Actually I did not find the clip I was looking for on YouTube (dang search engine) but we did play this piece this week. I am sure this is not an alien theme for all most of you since it's Star Wars for goodness sake! Honestly, I have only watched one Star Wars was preeeety good. I have to go thru it again just to make sure. :P

Our Friday rehearsal consists of string players only (or Junior Strings as it is dubbed). Most of the players kids that plays in it are
1. totally new to playing in the orchestra.
2. are not ready to join the full ensemble orchestra.
3. are kids (like WTF?)
4. did I say kids already?

Ok, the kids can play better than I! On a regular basic, meaning theories, solo pieces (I totally suck, that's why I need more practice!!) but they play really soft when they are in an orchestra. And they ok some, can't keep up with the pace of an orchestra. I am not saying I can - since I only play for like oh 14 years!- but some of the pieces we play are pretty damn fast! I know sometimes I can't keep up myself! That's for lack of sidereading the notes.. =_='''  I have lost my magic touch. *sigh* Nothing practice can't fix!!

Anywhooo, this week I present you Star Wars Theme. (Ok, this totally wasn't the one I was looking for either, but it is pretty darn close).

Happy Birthday!!!

"...A a a a a a, very happy birthday to me, TO ME..." I quote from Alice in Wonderland. :D Yay, it is my birthday!!!-5th October, if you're wondering- and I think I've spent a lot of $$$ ka-ching this birthday weekend. *sigh* But if it makes me happy I am thrilled, should I not be??

So anyway, like my cousin says 'If it is buying what you need, indeed it's not shopping' :P I concur. Hehehe, anything to make me feel better, right? Anywhooo, CLK said he sent me a package, which he persistently avoided even when I tricked him - in ways only I can do - to tell me what he sent me, he never moved. He's as solid as a rock! He got the package I sent his like 2 weeks ago, and he got in within 5 days and the old man at the post office said it will take about 2 weeks. I got lucky. CLK said he sent his like a week ago and he said it was suppose to arrive within 8-10 days, so I am hoping it will arrive today! Like hopefully.

I gotta sleep...I don't feel so good. I will update later...

Piece of the week: Is on vacation

I. Hate. !@#%^(&*#$%@. The internet connection has been uberly slow and annoying to me this past few days...and I need fast, lag-free connection dammit! I can't even load my Facebook page! OK, that's very important you know.

So since I can't get on YouTube this week POW would have to go on a slight vacation. Will find a badass piece for all....

2 Nights 1 Day

That is how much time is spent laughing our ass off - and crying till my chest hurts - talking and laughing at other people, laughing at stories,about other people that are hilarious and cursing at people who we find effin' annoying. Ok, we don't always laugh at other people, we just sometimes have stories (about ourselves) that we laugh about. No harm done. :)

And 2 Days 1 Night!!!

Like seriously, absofuckinglutely funny!!! x 1000! We (Fi and I) was over at Juls' for the open house and we had to, had to stay and watched 2 days 1 night...together! Like for the very first (possibly last) time. And we laughed. Like. Crazy. XD and it was like after midnight ^^. It was funny! Hilarious! You gotta watch it to believe it (oh it is in Korean but we 'understood' ;) ).

Fi and Juls are so into 2D1N!

It was one of the good days of Raya. Hmmm...actually waited for CLK to get on but he didn't and well I was kinda pissed a lil. Cause at least he would say HI. You know...ok, I am just a lil clingy...I am not saying I am not! I am CLINGY. He knows I am clingy. Take it or leave it.

So yeah I was kinda !@#^&%* and then my parents says "hey, we are going to take a family portrait today". OK yay? And we actually had fun. It was not like super duper fun but we had fun. We got home and well...took more pictures, as usual. Me and the sisters and my brother trying to be civilized.

Until I realized I was suppose to go see Juls (she actually reminded me XD thanks Juls!! I had fun!). Then Fi and I went. We were expecting everyone to be dressed - as in in Raya clothes and stuff - but they were in jeans. JEANS. Gah if I knew :P I wouldn't be so dressed up. Hahaha, Fi and I were dressed to impressed but it was ok. It is still raya :P.

We got back at around 2am, not before we went to my aunt's house. She was here for a few days only and I wanted to say hi before she leaves. Nicky, my cousin gave us his own concoction of a 'mocktail' - Sundrop orange juice with Cola- it was surprisingly good. :D My aunt didn't want us to get poisoned by it but I am still good. And kicking :P. So, THANKS Nicky!!

Sundrop + Cola = good

It was like a small (family?) gathering but I was nervous. I was embarrassed to wear something so 'glam' when they were casual. :P We ate good food, always good food with KFC. I know, out of all the food KFC you say :D but I was craving for KFC was goooooooooooooooooooood. ^^ yummm yummm.

We were introduced to Glee and Vampire Diaries. And they were interesting. They are not out on tv or anything here but they are out in the states. Time to look it up and drown ourselves in more vampire episodes - and Glee. :D They are really good. I am going to follow.

So today (Sunday), I had some fun too. :) With some friends, old friends. High school friends. :) I miss high school friends. We had spaghetti! It was good. And cheesecake. They were. Awesome. My friend's husband is a lucky guy! ^^ Too much food...and an hour ago, I had some steamboat thingy. =_='' I much food today... but it is still Raya. ;) That is always a good excuse. :D

Piece of the week: Symphony no 47 in G major

Ok, as we all know it was a holiday weekend, which, no rest, food, staying up most of the night, food, friends, family and laughter. Yeah fun...then I remember I forgot this week POW...hmmm. I guess I wasn't in a rush to post this up since I have not been going to my orchestra practice...for almost 2 weeks now. :P Didn't I said it was a holiday week? :D And no I have not done my ASSignment yet...typical.

Anywhoo, this week piece was on of the last pieces I played before the holiday. It wasn't one of the 'greatest' or interesting piece I've played but I like it. :) G major sounds really good ^^. So this week I present Symphony no 47 in G major by F. J. Haydn.

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

What has been going on?




Now I don't need words for that right? Gonna indulge in chocolate cheese cake...hmmmm... (and that my friend is how I got my migraine yesterday).

Piece of the week: Air on G string

So this week, I only went for my orchestra practice once (ok it was last week, since I am doing this like a whole 5 days late) and we were playing (mostly) the G string pieces, or majors...whatever. Anyway, they were getting ready to play for a wedding (booo, we didn't get to play in it since they only want like 5 people!! how stingy!) and the pieces were romantic and great.

This was one of my many favorites of that night, and I tried so hard to remember the names of the pieces (even had to write them on my phone, just in case) and this particular piece is so familiar yet I never could find the exact title for it. NOW I know. :D This lovely piece is by Bach. :)

It is a romantic piece, good for those long walks down the isle or a romantic dance with your partner (now that makes me wanna dance) altho it also reminds me of the castle, knights and kings and queens. :) So I leave you with Air on G string by Bach.

Early morning rant

I sometimes feel like rambling about nothing-ness but when I come spill my ill thoughts random ramblings, I go numb. Like, hmmmrrmmm what was it that I was annoyed at? Yes, exactly. I have no effin' idea.

Today I was just feeling kinda at peace with myself, wait maybe not. I don't really know how to express the feeling, but I'm not sad nor am I happy. It's like being stuck in the middle. At peace? With myself? I dunno...but people have been asking me, constantly about when will CLK and I meet again. I suppose the idea of him not being here really puts me down. Like don't rub it in the face man, I know he's like half way across the world you don't need to remind me of that fact - kinda feeling. You know...

It has been about 7 months this 15th of September that I last saw him, like see him, feel him kinda see. *sigh* I talk to him almost daily but it is not the same. I mean we didn't want to be put in this exact situation but it just happened. I guess there are some good that comes with it but like what is good if you are apart right? I dunno...I mean it is good, but the distance really is bull. But that's what we choose, we decided, we took and accepted. :) And I am happy. (Ok didn't I say it puts me down?)

I dunno, I guess some people can't see how it could work, having a loooooooooooooong distance relationship and all, and being apart for so long. The way I see it, is that if you have no desire to be with someone else, or attracted to anyone else it would work, right? And I do believe in karma. I mean, if the other person was cheating on you you are sure to know about it one way or another. Karma's a bitch I know. Altho I am hoping karma would be good to me this time :). I mean what have I done to be bitten on the ass right?

Anyway, I was just rambling...actually there was a point to this but like I said I forgot as soon as I see the 'new post' segment. Life's a chocolate factory...haha. Hmmm, chocolate.

I just miss him.

Piece of the week: The planets Op. 32 Jupiter

:D I love planets. This week piece is a piece that I somewhat hate love, I guess I have a love-hate relationship with it. Undoubtedly it is a very good piece. :) Or maybe it's the conductor my lack of side reading skills...but listen to it. It is really good.

So I give you The Planets Op. 32 Jupiter by Gustav Holst

Monday blues

Seriously, I think I have Monday blues. :( I just realized the my drivers license expires tomorrow and I can't go and renew it!!!! I have an 8 am class (I think, I'm not sure!!) I am so screwed! And I just spent !@*(!#$**# amount of money sending a parcel to CLK today. Like I knew it was gonna be much but not THAT much. You hear? *sigh*

I have been on retail therapy lately, and I need a therapy to get out of that therapy. I NEED A GOOD BOOK! Seriously. Lately I'm obsessed with something....and my kitties are leaving me soon. :( I'm so sad!!! Like really. They are the cutesttttt of the cutest. I'll post pictures soon, I need to catch some zzzz. Night.

Piece of the week: Greensleeves

This piece was our soundtrack favorite growing up. (Al, this piece is close to heart ain't it?) This is an 18th century piece by Mozart, altho I think it is relatively short and I wish it was longer. It reminded me of the King Arthur era, where all are white and gay (gay as in happy, joyous, celebratorious (is that a word?)). And it is so never-ending-story theme. :) You know what I mean. ;)

So this week I present to you Greensleeves by Mozart.

** The first clip is the piece we usually play with the orchestra, and I thought was the original one, or maybe not...I don't know but the second one so reminds me of King Arthur. Dang I want to watch The Tudors.

I know this is 1st of September (here it is) but I just want to make a shout out to everyone out there who celebrated our Independence yesterday.


Ok I am a lil late on that throw-your-hands-up-in-the-air-kinda-thingy, but I really meant to post this yesterday, really. :D I did not celebrate. Nope. Not this year. Nor any other year. Well maybe some years when I was in college, bored with the internet, since you're on it 24/7 (damn I should've started this blog then, actually I do blog but on MySpace :P) and go, 

'hey why don't we go make a fool of ourself and try to look slutty sultry and sexy while doing it?'  

Haha, nah I'm not like that. Really. :D So some 31st August was great, or should I say the 30th night. We use to rent this house, and from there we could see fireworks and didn't have to be stuck in traffic to go to the stadium or whatsoever to watch it. Cool heh? :D We'd usually just sit on the park benches in front of our rented house and take pictures with the firework on display. I think 2 years ago was the best, since our college had a firework display too and the state had a firework display too. It sounded like Thor was having an uproar with Zeus :P and I feel like I was in this colorful, bright, loud, and magical land.

Awesome. I think I have some pictures. I'd have to dig those up. :D

Anywhooo, this year was bleh. I, for one, did not really enjoy the night/day. It was kinda peaceful yet boring. Altho I fell asleep before midnight I probably missed the fireworks. :( Oh well I'd have to wait till New Years. But the kids were playing fire crackers and fireworks of their own. Damn, annoying kids!!! But yeah, it dampers the mood of my Merdeka night. But at least I got a good night sleep, eh? :D Well deserved.

Oh, I just realized that it was also the anniversary of the death of Princess Diana. She died 31st August 1997, and I remembered that day clearly. Since it was our Independence day, we were celebrating it. With joy. Then the news of the princess dying really shocked me. So every year on the 31st of August, it always reminds me of the horrible crash that took her life away. :) Altho I did not know her but she has done amazing things in the short life. You will always be missed.

**Selamat Hari Merdeka = Happy Independence Day

Piece of the week: The Marriage of Figaro

This week piece is by Mozart. Altho it was not the piece that I wanted to share but I could not find the one that I wanted so this will have to do. :) Enjoy Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro.

Monday, August 24, 2009


...not! Ok I am happy Arsenal won (again! yippie!) last Saturday night, and it was a good game. 4 - 1 versus Portsmouth. See, I told you it would make me not so pissed when they play, but today is Monday and I am kinda bummed. Ok maybe not bummed, just a lil mad. A lil. A teeny tiny bit maybe. *sigh* Anywho, as for Arsenal winning, I am fairly happy. :D And they have another game on Wednesday (that would be Thursday morning for me) vs Celtic for the UEFA Championship qualifier. I hope they win. Bad. :) Arsenal video here. :D

And owh, I have learned something new over the weekend. :D Ok I know it's not new anymore but I have been wanting to learn but just got held back a bit. I learned how to do a fishtail braid and a rope braid. I am uber happy. :D Altho I still can't do a french fishtail braid (yet) but I am learning. And my hair looks so crappy with the rope braid. Cause I just have this crazy lil hair and shits that goes everywhere. I tried it on my sisters hair, and it. Looked. Good. YAY! New things to do with my very long, and crazy hair! So anyway, it is raining elephant and dinosaurs out there and I left the umbrella in the car. Stupid really. But they said it wasn't gonna rain. Next time I should listen to my inner conscience. I better prep for a wet journey to the car...not looking forward to it. *sigh*

Imagine having to endure the freezing cold rain like this, poor thing

** Oh I was listening to some songs I have on my laptop for centuries that are gathering dust (ahaha...gather dust?) and I was like her I haven't listen to this song in a freakin' long time, and I think it just brought me back to my lonely days, I feel lonely today. Listening to To you I belong by B*witched**

*photo from here*

Can you say pissed much? Yes I am. It started cherry but now I feel like I was gutted in the stomach. Really? Hate much? Yes, but you can't really get angry at someone for that long of a time right? Wrong, I am gonna be uber ego and drag this on for days...really. Am pissed. Really..........

Arsenal is playing tonight so that oughta be good. Can't wait. At least I won't stay angry that long. Hmphhh.

Piece of the week: Marche Slave

As you know I am a part of an orchestra (ok maybe 2 orchestras) but I love my classical orchestra. (Yes I play in an orchestra). I play the violin. :) I have been playing since I was 10 (that's actually very late to start playing the violin) but that doesn't matter. I got the chance that ultimately got me where I am in the orchestra today, playing for the Sarawak State Symphony Orchestra or SONS.

I started playing the violin when I was in elementary school. Actually I didn't know how it all started. It is a long story but I'll try to keep it short :P. There was a time in my life when I had to move around a lot, since my parents were teachers. And one fortunate event lead me to study abroad (ok my dad was studying abroad not moi but I suppose I was studying abroad too :D but in elementary school hehehe) and it brought me to Menomonie, Wisconsin. :) I loved the place. It is a small town (is it a town now still?) and everyone is friendly. :D Good first impression.

Well you know how it is, they encourage you to embrace your identity (ok I might just made that up) but they were talking about being in a band or orchestra. It was either band or orchestra. :D I was really interested in learning the drums or percussion but I think I was persuaded by friends to join the orchestra. (Ok maybe I always thought being a violinist was awesome :P) so that's how it all started. And the rest is history...or herstory :P *geddit*

Anyway, I was thinking of sharing the piece that I think are really interesting (and that interest me) of the week. :D I play twice a week (for my classical orchestra) and twice a week (now to be once a week) for my jazz orchestra. Yes I play jazz too but I'm not very good.

So this week Piece of the week (POW) is Marche Slave by Tchaikovsky. I love this piece, altho it is a tad bit difficult but practice makes perfect, right? ;) I am gonna practice summore.

I. Am. Fuckin'. Awesome.


I couldn't believe myself.

There is a story behind this (promise) but I am too tired and sickly to tell you now, but I am.
Pretty. Awesome. :D

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ UPDATE ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ok, I said I was awesome, so I am. :P I need to indulge in self-vanity once in awhile. So anyway, it has something to do with yesterday (Monday evening, in case yesterday is confusing). :D I was pretty pissed off cause the lightning struck our router so that means no internet, and no YoVille :P. Ahahah...I think I am hooked on that
game =_='''. So anyway, after a frustrating hour of trying to connect but then I realize there was no connection, I went on playing my Farm Frenzy 2!! I love that game :P.

So, I walked out of the office late (like by 5 minutes) and I was frantically trying to think where I parked the car. (Yeah sometimes I am so paranoid that my car is missing :P, I hope that never happens) and I saw there was this orange-ish car that double parked me. Actually that asshole blocked my car! I was like what. The. Hell? How
am I going to get out? Ok, first I thought, if he is double parking that means he is close or/and somewhere near right? (That's what CLK thought). I thought so too. After starting up the car to give that asshole a signal that I AM ABOUT to leave, I waited for about 5-10 minutes for that person to get a clue. Unfortunately, the so called asshole wasn't anywhere near his car. Nor was he 50 feet from his car. I was like. What. The. Fuck! Like seriously, I had to go home and get change and go to my jazz orchestra rehearsal.

I was sitting there thinking I have to have a second plan to get out of this parking space in case the dude would not be around to move his fucking car. So then, I got and idea. I. am. Awesome. Fortunately the parking space next to mine was empty (thank God!!) and I was thinking,

'Hmmm, this car is small enough to do 3-points turning to actually use the empty lot to actually squeeze out of the parking lot.' This might work! Brilliant idea I say.

So I don't know if there was anyone around to watch my spectacular escapade or be amazed at what I did (cause they should because I rocked!) but I know there was this one lady and her son in a car just a few feet from mine. And I bet she saw the whole thing. How I manage to squeeze out of the parking space by doing the logical thing I can think of. I thought I saw the boy point at me and telling his mom something. I wasn't paying attention cause I was hoping I wouldn't scratch the fucker's car (wish I did, serves him right).

I manage to get out after reversing-forward-reverse-shit.I hope I don't hit his car.-reversing-forward and I got out. Aren't I amazing?? I. Totally. Am. Yesserie. :D

Too bad I didn't have anyone take a video of my escapade :P

Sunday, August 16, 2009


It is just. Fucking. EPIC. Can you believe it?? Arsenal (on its first game of the season) won 6 - 1 vs Everton. Epic I tell ya. I am happy. *roll on my back and wants my tummy rub, like a kitty cat* (Cheshire smile **___________________________________** )

Our 5 goal scorers from last night are (yes 5, Fabregas scored twice ^^):

First goal was from Denilson, was an awesome goal, didn't think it would go in :D.

Second goal was from their new defender, Thomas Vermaelen, awesome header,

third goal was also from the defender, William Gallas, who is known to head home goals on occasions.

Fourth and fifth goal was from (the very cute and awesome) captain Cesc Fabregas. :D

Their last and also important goal was from Eduardo, who was out for 1 year last season from a broken leg, it was a cute goal but it was a goal that counts. :D Epic I say.

Altho the other team manage to score 1 goal (from Saha) it was an epic game anyway. Happy. :D Read the story here, and the video here.

Let the countdown begin

Everton vs Arsenal 1230 pm, Sunday morning (1730 hours London time)

Mood swings, yeah it's that time of month

I get effin- mad during this time of month. I get upset, I cry (yes I cry over stupid lil things), I get pissed off by little mistakes, I get really pissy and I always seem to throw it all at CLK. I sometimes get upset with him, even tho it was clearly nothing to be upset about. I get 'irrational'. (Yes I know, I admit I'm irrational when I'm upset, or I'm upset and get irrational, but I can't help it.) Yes. I. Can't help it. I get pissy, I cry- a lot. Sometimes it makes me feel a lot better about myself. Other times, I just get more upset.

But you know sometimes I just needed that someone to not try to understand why I'm upset. Just let me be. (OK I don't want to let me 'be' I need someone to give me hugs and tell me everything is going to be OK.)

(What? I just want some lovin'.)

Clearly, sometimes that message don't come across. It sometimes come across as 'leave-me-fuckin'-alone-I-don't-want-to-talk-to-you-now'. Which really sucks. I do admit it's a mistake in my part. But that's ego talking. I don't wanna go, 'please hold me, I want you to make it all better'. Sissy. But really, that's what I'm saying. *sigh*

CLK always seems to be optimistic about things. Like now, I'm in my PMS-ing state, really annoying if you ask me. If I was my boyfriend I'd really be annoyed. But no. He's like all 'I know you're in your mood swing, pms thing so I think I need to leave you alone'. Like what? So cool. I mean, yeah I'm in my PMS thing but I don't want to be alone. :( *pout* And yes, I am being difficult. I am being irrational. I am being stupid. But I don't want to be alone. What am I talking about? I don't know. Sometimes I don't get myself. Being irrational. *sigh*

I don't want to be irrational. (Yes I am definitely IRRATIONAL) but sometimes I can't help myself. Sometimes I feel like yapping and biting peoples' heads off (mostly CLK cause I talk to him a lot and he happens to trigger my irrational mode when I'm upset (which usually happens over idiotic things he say or I just feel like he don't want to talk to me) which is, irrational). See? I don't understand myself. *spins round and round* I'm upset, can't you tell? (and I have no idea what's the point of this post)

I need a rest and clear my mind. Oooo, orchestra practice tonight, yummy. Mind-clearing time.

*psst, PMS survival tips*
