when boredom strikes today I was just fooling around with Feist's song... you know, the one that I've learned through youtube...
I may not be the best singer or the best guitar player, but I did it anyway...! Laugh if you want, it's just for fun after all... (>_<"

p.s. oh and a very Happy Eid ul-Adha to all Muslims... :)

He doesn't suck y'all!

currently... : Imma youtubing again
current location: peninsular malaysia, wishing everyday that she was back to borneo
current music: when you wish you were someone else and you wanna go out and kill yourself, you’re overreacting

I just discover this one man band with no fans today, which I stumble upon accidentally. I was watching some youtube video, (I was searching about Cyril errr don't ask!) (x_x) and the background song's just captured my heart... I instantly and frantically searching for the name of the song and who sings it. After searching for approximately 5 minute, I finally found it (by typing the whole word and all). It's Overreacting (the Deep Immunosupression Mix by Dr. Gore) by Brad Sucks. I definitely am his fan from now on! hehe... Oooh and he doesn't suck!

- This is the guy that I was talking about, Mr. Brad Turcotte, and he's great! -

Currently... : my business is growing strong...café world is very addictive indeed.
Current location: same as always, in front of the pc.
Current music: When you came in the air went out And every shadow filled up with doubt...

I am absolutely 100% a manga addict. I don't know who's to blame for that. Hmm...probably my brother. He liked to read manga then. I remember when we were kids, I used to read manga like all the time. My first manga is probably Doraemon. And then, I was introduced to Dragonball and there was no turning back since. I'm a manga whore! I have like a whole bookshelf dedicated for my precious manga collection. Yes, I'm a manga collector – Dragonball, Sailormoon, Chibi Maruko chan, Doraemon, plus a bunch of many other various Shonen & Shoujo mangas. I'm still a manga addict now, but I hardly ever bought any these days. Its tough (and depressing) being a student with no income you know. I wish I could buy manga anytime I want. Luckily, these days many sites offer manga download/reading for free, so I won't have to buy them. Series like Naruto, Bleach, Claymore, One piece, Gintama... and now, I have a whole hard disk dedicated for manga.... "-_-)

Right now, I'm reading Kimi ni Todoke (From Me to You). It's a shoujo manga by Shīna Karuho, but I'm guessing that boys are also 'allowed' to read it since it's not too mushy or overly lovey-dovey love story or anything like that. I bet a lot of boys do read this manga, I think... Highly recommended for those who wishes for something new and refreshing. I enjoy reading it. And for once, I don't have a hard time liking the main girl character because usually the main character for shoujo manga was...well...unlikeable? Or just very hard to like at first. And the story was also different as it's not simply like boy meets girl, then they fall in love, have a little misunderstanding, and quickly resolve it then have a happy ending...totally nothing like that at all.

Well the story is about Kuronema Sawako, a girl who people at her school were afraid of because she resembles the girl from The Ring – Sadako (Samara), and she was also called Sadako because of it. There's this funny synopsis written that says, "Sawako is the perfect heroine – for a horror movie..." But of course she's nothing like a ghost. She's actually very sweet and naive. And she's incredibly dense (but extremely cute when she's in her dense/naive mode)! Sheesh! You have to read it to know more, and I promise you, you won't regret it! :D And I also adore the main guy character, Kazehaya Shouta...He's cute! – and have a very big heart! Sounds like the kind of guy I would hope for! Hehehe... There's also the anime version of it and if you would like to watch it, then go here.

I FEEL it all

Currently... : I feel super!
Current location: youtube
Current music: Ooh I'll be the one who'll break my heart, I'll be the one to hold the gun

Youtube is the best teacher of all time...yeah! That's what I think! hehe. Just now I learned how to play Feist, I feel it all. A song that I love so very much from a singer whom I adore greatly.

I saw Feist for the first time on TV. But I wasn't much of a fan then. But after I heard the remix version of Mushaboom by Postal Service, I immediately googling her up to find out more about her and her music. That's how I first was exposed to her songs and the rest, as cliché as this would sound, is history. Thank You Postal Service!

And then about a year later or so, I saw on the news about her 1,2,3,4 video was being used as a commercial by Apple for Ipod nano. She became much more mainstream and known after that I guess.

This Canadian singer-songwriter is very talented and she had won many awards, among them including Songwriter of the Year, Artist of the Year, Pop Album of the Year, Album of the Year and Single of the Year at the 2008 Juno Awards. Nice! To know more about Feist and her fabulous music, click here.

a really strange phenomena

Currently... : listening to The Action Design
Current music: Rails on rails Walls on walls Madness comes Madness goes!

So, today as I was scrolling through the status updates on facebook, a statement from mr. Tom has caught my eyes. Apparently, he was curious as to why do people, likes to have their pictures taken in the bathroom. Hmmm... I've never thought of that before. So I was asking the same question, and here were the top most famous reasons.

  • the 'lighting' - yeah right! like what's the different between the lighting in the toilet compared to any other rooms?
  • because of the big mirrors
  • because it's a private place, so no one can disturb while camwhoring.
  • low self-esteem - whaaaat????? is this for real?

So I find that this is a very interesting thing to discuss about. No, I'm not saying that it's wrong. People can do whatever the hell they want, I don't care. It's just that I would like to know why. Is that wrong?

Speaking of bathrooms, I've done some research on toilets. So there are 2 major kinds of toilets, the

Pedestal toilet

Squat toilet

And a combination of both

And there's also the portable toilet! Hey, now you can poop anywhere you wish! Sans flushing of course! Useful for campers I bet.

And here is what an ISS or a space toilet looks like

Kind of freaky if you asked me. Sure am glad I'm not an astronaut...hehe just kidding!

I wish someday, I could have a toilet like this:

-nyalah ya! x mampu ku nak bayar zakat emas, ngaaa!! XD -

Apart from taking pictures in bathrooms, there's also another thing that you may find common but strange if you think about it. Writing on bathroom walls/doors.

I think that's enough toilet talk for one day... Though I've got to say that this got to be the 'dirtiest' post I've ever written! :D

- Just beware of perverts! XD -

can't be saved

Currently... : my mind is saying bleakhh
Current mood: bleakhh!
Current music: shut the door and turn all the lights out
And listen to all the songs that the night shoutsThey go something just like this

First of all, I would like to wish a very HAPPY 23rd BIRTHDAY to:


hehe. Now we're even! We're OLD Tom!! uwaaa... I know you're having a par-tay tonight, so drink responsibly yah!

So, what do I hate most? hmm....

Life's too short for hate!

It's not in my nature to blow up in front of people whenever I'm mad at them. I do, but only to those who are very very close to me. But I RARELY get mad to people that I am not familiar with. If I'm angry with them, the only thing that I would do is to avoid them. But I never hate them. Because life's too short for hate... It'll hurt a lot at the beginning, but surely in time, it'll heal. Life's too short for hate...

kampua oo kampua...

Currently... : I'm watching true blood... can't decide who I like more, bill or henry (blood ties)
current quote:
"don't stand there and be judgmental about her, when you're no different..." - Dr Kelso
current music:
so let this be my last salutation and let this be my first vindication if I believe it then I can leave it and I will leave it.

As you are aware, I'm watching true blood now. So you guys were wondering... 'hmm, that's strange. How can she watch true blood while typing her blog?'... Actually, I'm streaming it online, so I have to wait for it to be fully downloaded, so that I won't have to stop watching every 5 frickin seconds. I'm still a noob though as I only watch the first episode of the first season last Sunday. I LOVE vampire stories. I've seen and read like dozens of vampire related movies and books. Blade, Underworld, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Van Helsing, Buffy, Blood Ties, Blood: the last vampire...surprising though, I haven't read or watch any of the twilight saga. hehehe...

And I don't know for how long has it been since I last watch the TV. I used to love my quality time just watching tv and be a couch potato. But now, I rarely do so anymore, right ever since I started my University life. I kinda missed it. So this afternoon, I turned on the tv, and guess what's on?? Only my favorite doctor tv series of course! [Scrubs]! I love Scrubs very much thank you! I follow the series since like I was in form 4 or 5, and whenever I watched it, I would be laughing like a hyena. It's a fun show, and very funny. God, I was so happy when I heard the news that the show will continue for another season. Currently, the 9th season will premiere this December (US, don't know when it'll premiere here in Asia :( )


Dan satu gik perkara yang aku mok padah ialah.....

Aku makan kampua aria! yay! Nyaman aih! Bapak aku buat. Boh jeles! hehehe!

get out

currently... : I'm reading a very funny blog. she's a genius
current location:
current music:
Something's gotta changeGood bye yesterdayTry again today
something's gotta change

when I read a blog about local students studying abroad, I would get this funny feeling... call it jealousy, call it envy, call it whatever you want, but I, sometimes wish that I could be that person and get out of this place. The sooner the better. I want to be there, a chance to be on the other side of the world, to experience life, something much bigger than what I have now. I know, I sound like an ungrateful little minx. But that's what truly want. I want to get out of here. There's got to be something much more for me out there, right? If only I was filthy rich!

On to some other random thing, I witnessed an accident yesterday, while having a claypot noodle at the mines (I don't like the noodles, I'd rather buy mee sedap than buying this noodles ever again! huh!). Though no souls were harmed, it looks like the car that was collided with the truck was damaged pretty badly. I could swear I saw the guy weeped. -or- maybe that's just my imagination (sebab aku ada imaginasi yg tinggi). That's why I don't like to drive here. Org sitok driving cam h1n1. Perangei x semperna nar! Asal dpt overtake jak puas la hati sidak. sial! Too bad I don't have any pictures. Drive safely guys! Biar lambat asal nyawa x melayang & mati katak. In the end Sapa rugi? Anda dan keluarga andalah! Dahla x sempat mengucap!

- Random things I found on the net -
Tonight I am so ___________________. (sleepy but I refuse to shut my eyes just yet)

Today was a/an _________________ kind of day. (uneventful)

Our weather was ________________ this morning. (rainy)

My favorite time of day is _______________________. (dawn)

The last thing I do before I go to bed at night is __________________. (pray)

I wish that I could go ____________________. (anywhere but here)

The first thing I do in the morning is ___________________. (thinking, "all is well")

I should have ______________ yesterday. (said goodbye to)


word of the day: Piglet Flu

During times of pandemic, the common flu is known as Piglet Flu. While less deadly than Swine Flu it still makes you feel like shit. However, because it is not infamous like swine flu you get no respect from having it. So you feel like crap and no one gives a damn because you don't have h1n1.

Doctor: How do you feel.
Patient: Like shit.
Doctor: Well the tests came back, you don't have swine flu. So get the hell out you lazy good for nothing bastard. Come back with a real illness.

Patient (as he is thrown out) But i really do have the flu. Even if it is only piglet flu.

capo is what i'm looking for

Currently... : I was wondering, if things don't end up like this, then what would happen to me right now?
current location: recycle bin...trying to get rid of all the junk in my life
current music: "
butter on a summer day when i hear that name, a dream that never came true"

I was obsessed with death cab for cutie's I will follow you into the dark song from their 2005 Plans album. And so I decided to try and learn how to play it with my (i wish it was mine but... no, it's my brother's) trusty guitar. The result was not very satisfying because I don't have a capo! damn! But I manage to, thankfully, learn to play the whole song, though I'm no expert guitarist. But I'm learning everyday. Finger picking was not my forte I must say...heee... so I just settled with strumming them, thus destroying the song completely, I'm sorry dcfc! I didn't mean to! if only I could finger picking a guitar.

As you all can see, I desperately need a capo (and a teacher to teach me how to finger picking). At this very moment, my capo is a pencil and few rubber bands (these darn things always breaks, driving me insane!) and voila! a poor-man's capo! (T_T)

my poor poor-man's capo

ok, well y'all laugh out loud at my capo now. But I tell you what, I learned how to play the paramore's version of use somebody with this very unattractive thing! Now if only I could get my hands on a real one... Perhaps you could say it's my biggest (belated) birthday wish? hmmm... well actually, not really! hehe

But one thing for sure is that I want to learn how to play the guitar properly, and practice till my fingers bleed or something.


no lah! XD

- wish me luck! -
and wish on that capo too!
