Another cover!

This is my cover of Stevie Wonder's Knocks me off my feet. I really love this song and I think that I can never do this song any justice. But I did it anyway because I'm a dork!

Oo and this guy is the one who played the guitar... I tried looking for a karaoke version, but I can't find none. So, credit to this guy.

Music: Knocks me off my feet - Stevie Wonder


When I will have my own house, I would love to buy a big ass bookcase just so I can fill it with wonderful books! I don't know why but I just think that bookcases can make a room look a little more epic.

Something like this. I would love to have this kind of room!

See! A room looked a lot nicer when there's a bookcase at a corner. Some people may prefer to 'decorate' their house with dvd's and cd's but hey, I love books so I think it's a good investment. But of course, I need to buy a house first to make this dream of mine come true. Last time I heard, a house would be too expensive by the time I graduated and have my own job, so it's kinda sad to think what would happen and what's in store for the future. Sigh...

Oo! I almost forgot! Can you guess who this girl is?

It's moi!
My friend drew it for me! Yes, the same guy whom I introduced last time in my older post. Don't you think it's pretty? Methinks it is! He's so talented and I truly wish the best for him in the arts industry, from the bottom of my heart. Weee!

Tuesday, December 13, 2011 her run, can you feel it?

Current music: 
Here I go again on my ownGoing down the only road I've ever known

I can probably say that everyday, all that I'm thinking about is 'I gotta finish up my assignment, or else my ass is numbered'. Right now, I have around 3 or 4 assignments that need to be done before next week come. And I have about 5 group presentation waiting in line. You can actually say that I'm in a very stinky situation and trust me, you wouldn't want to be in my shoe. Remember around early this year I complained about how tough it is for me that semester? Well guess what? It's TOUGHER this semester. And I bet that next semester would be the same. Impossibru? 

Huuuh. I hate my life.

But hey, no matter what I always look on the bright side. Wait I can't think of a single positive thing right now. :(

Thankfully, besides assignments I have something that can keep me entertained whenever I feel like I needed to take a break. It's this old show called Veronica Mars. Yeah, it is old but I LOVE it! Reminded me of Buffy series a lot (and I also LOVE Buffy TVS btw...) though I must say that in a way both show were totally different in terms of storyline, theme and everything. Check it out guys and I promise you wouldn't regret it! 

What else did I do these past couple of months besides assignments? O yea, I had my birthday and I got the best present ever! Like totally awesome. I get to see Whitesnake live! They are the best rock band of their generation and I'm lucky to have seen them performing live. We had a blast headbanging and stuff. 

And the best part is that I've read Dork Diaries 3! Hehe. (Extorted from my little niece)

Dear future husband

Current location: Cheras
Current music: 
You complete my fate
The world unwinds inside of me
You complete my fate
The halo crawls away

I wanna talk about marriage. I don't know why I just want to ramble about it. Maybe because of the weather. Nah, it's just me. Well, I was just wondering what marriage feels like? I would like to mention here that I'm a very private girl and there's a fat chance that I won't be married to anyone, anytime soon. I don't like people messing with my personal space. Yeah, it's me. I have a very serious problem and nobody can treat it, not even myself. Ok, so back to the topic, what does it feel like to be married?

Let's think about it for a minute, you have to be with that person for your whole life. There will be no secret between you and your spouse, not forgetting all the work you have to do in order to make sure that your married life wouldn't fall apart, and it can be a little annoying sometimes, don't you think? Maybe love is a good enough reason to be together forever but I just can't imagine me, living with some guy. I would go crazy, like seriously.

Take my mom, for example. Sometimes I know that she cannot stand my father. They always argue about a lot of things, most of it is just too trivial to even matter. I think 30+ years of living together can do that to you.

So what is my point here? Hmm, I sure as hell don't know myself. 

But I did said this to myself a long time ago. If I ever going to get married, the guy would have to be Japanese. Again, I don't know why. I kinda just thought about it on the spur of the moment. Meaning that I won't find my future husband, ever.


I know I've been neglecting this blog for quite some time now, and I admit since my life is so hectic and it's getting tougher and tougher to keep up with everything. Sorry folks. But despite what it seems, I would never abandon this blog all of a sudden without telling anything first. So thank you for your visit and hope that you'll have a nice day!

A Confession

Currrent music: 
Some things in life may change,
But some things they stay the same,
Like time, there's always time,
On my mind
So pass me by, I'll be fine.

To the most dearest person in my life, my mom.

I don’t have delicate hands. I can’t cook like you do, I can’t fix things like you do, nor do I seem to inherit your abilities to do almost anything. I’ve always been a wild child, refusing to do every single thing that you want me to do. Thank Allah that I did at least listened to you when you told me to go to school. You told me a lot of things really. How you wish you could finish your education, in order to have a better life. How you wish you could give us the best of the best of everything in life. But I never feel that you have failed us. Sure I get angry at you now and then but I’m only  human so that’s probably normal right? If anything, it’s us that have failed as your children.

I love you mom. And I think that she knows that too. I love you mom and I’ve always find solace in you when I needed something to remind me that life is not so bad. You are my anchor, my guiding star. Your laughter is like medicine to my soul. Your smile is the most brightest thing in my world. Even brighter than sunshine. I love you mom. And I would die for you in a heartbeat.

And it pained me deeply to see those shine in your eyes slowly diminishes with the passing of time. I can’t replace your bones nor can’t I give you my energy and I really  wish that I could. Mom, there are no words to describe your love. I will try, and one day I really wish I could repay you back for all that you’ve given me. Even though my hands aren’t delicate enough. I’ll try.

The truth is...

I can't sleep. Well, 'tell me something I don't know', you say. But because of that, I did another cover. This time it's this heart wrenching song by JRA, Closure. I like this song a lot. Mistakes here and there, because it's so quiet and dark when I recorded this, it's almost too eerie. Enough talk, let's hear it.

Lift Up Your Head

The other day, a friend of mine made this pretty picture as a tribute to me! It was awesome and I LOVE it! Although she's not really a representation of me (as the girl in the drawing have nothing in common with me) I do think that she looked really cool, don't you think so too?

And it's all thanks to this guy! He was my primary school classmates back in the days, and I remember he used to draw all the time. And I wish him all the best as I have faith that he will hit it big in the future. 

Nice eh?
Check out his blog to see more of his beautiful arts. 

And to repay back what he did I decided to make a cover of Matt Hires song, the one which I'm so addicted to listen to for some reason, O sunrise. The quality of the audio is not so great so I'm very sorry about that. I don't have a good mic so I have to make do with what I have. Thanks!

UN-happy ending!

Current music: And lift up your head,
                     Oh, the night's long and lonely,
                     And nothing's the same when you're gone. 

I hate sudden endings. End of story.

See what I mean? No explanation, no reasons, no nothing. Just that. And I really especially hate sudden endings in  manga because let’s face it, who likes to wait for nothing right? You waited faithfully every week or even months for a new (ahem) scanlated chapter to come out and then suddenly after all of the waiting you've done it’s ending like everything’s a joke. I think that one of the suckiest endings of all time in manga universe is Yankee-kun to Megane-chan / Flunk Punk Rumble. I was like...WTF WAS THIS SHIT!? Now, I LOVE that series, don't get me wrong. I mean it's a great manga and it would have been fine if they just cancelled it and leave the rest of the series open to let the readers make their own ending as how they'll see fit. But when the people who decided that this fantastic series need to be cancelled immediately which leads to that horrible, crappy, disastrous, whatever ending, it makes me want to turn into a frickin’ Godzilla and terrorize the whole world. Seriously. What a crap. I truly despise rushed/sudden endings. That’s all I wanted to say. Thank you for listening to my pain.

My life so far

Currently... : drained, desperately trying to sleep
Current location: somewhere on Borneo Island
Current music: the sound of heavy downpours outside, it's like music to my ears

Since I was little, I used to be told that it's important to know what you want to do in life, to have a goal and try to make it when you grow up. Now I'm all grown up (at least I think I did), I still don't know what I want to be or do. Is that bad? It's not that I don't have a dream or anything like that. I actually do, but at this point I don't think that it's realistic to go for that dream knowing that I won't ever reach it even if I'm giving my 1000% effort. There must be something else for me out there, it's just that I don't know it yet. It's such a headache, trying to figure out what your true calling in life, isn't it?

Well, I said this many times before but I'm gonna say it again just for the sake of it, NO ONE will ever know how the future will turn out, not even if you're the best witch doctor / scientist / alien? in the whole universe. And until then, I'm just gonna try my best to search for that purpose that I was meant to do in this life. You can say that I'm still stuck at the crossroads of my life, and I'm trying very hard to find a good gps store to help me finding my destination (which in a way makes very little to no sense at all since a gps can't really tell me where I want to go unless I point it to them... sigh) So wish the best for me guys!

Have you heard? American Gods going to be made into a series soon! Yay!! I love that book. Thanks to Tom Hanks production company, HBO is going to bring this fantastic book to live on the television for 6 seasons. I'm truly excited guys.

Hopes and Fears

Current music: Yeah we walk through the doors, so accusing their eyes / Like they have any right at all to criticize / Hypocrites. You're all here for the very same reason

You know, I've seen a lot of anime lately since I have too much free times on my hand. One of them is Samurai Champloo and I don't care if you dislike it I do so shut up! This anime was produced and first aired in 2004 until 2005 with the total of 26 episodes by Manglobe, who also famous with producing this other great anime called Ergo Proxy. I can't express how much I love this series. I hope that there will be a sequel some time in the future by Mr Shinichiro, though it's highly unlikely. But if they do have a plan for a sequel, I think that they could make like some kind of reincarnation thingy going on, where our three favorite characters, Mugen, Jin and Fuu would meet in this current universe. It would totally be awesome! I like the idea of really combining the hip-hop element into it. One other thing that I love about Samurai Champloo is the voice actors or the seiyuu, particularly Jin's. His seiyu is this guy name Sato Ginpei, and aside from video games and Samurai Champloo, he didn't do any other voice acting for other anime. Quite a let down actually. His voice is so silky and smooth and I would love to hear it again in other series as well... sigh.

Great fanart of the trio

Oh yeah and I have a good news! The results were out earlier today and I passed! Woohoo! So relieved guys, you have no idea! I've been worrying about my finals a lot and I guess in the end, all my hard works are worth it! My thanks goes out to all who have helped me throughout the semester! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

May the 5th Be with You!

Currently... : I'm fighting with these super annoying mosquitoes. 
Current location: My soon to be demolished hostel room.
Current music:

 I've been long, a long way from here Put on a poncho, played for mosquitoes,
And drank til I was thirsty again
Star Wars day was yesterday, but I think that everyday should be a Star Wars day! :)

Hello folks! Yes, it's that time of the year again! Say whaat??
I've finished yet another semester today! Wuhuu!!

And what a lovely feeling it is! 4 months of pure unadulterated holiday fun and goodness! FUN FUN FUN FUN!

O yeah, I am OBSESSED with Kamio Yoko's work as of lately. Yea, she's famous for creating Hana Yori Dango (Boys Over Flowers) manga series, but to be honest, I never really read that one. It's the other works from her that I'm crazy about. Cat Street and Matsuri Special. You have to check these two manga out. Got me hooked to the last chapter in one sitting...

Cat Street
Matsuri Special
There's also a Cat Street live action drama made but I heard it's not so good, so I won't recommend it since I've never watch it myself too. But personally, I always prefer the manga rather than live action. Hehe...

Aaannd I also get myself this wonderful book during the Book Festival last week. I know I'm late but there's a discount so I finally can get my hand on this one. :P

Yeah, I got this version of my Eat, Pray, Love book cover. I love it! Unfortunately, haven't seen the movie yet! How lame am I?

It’s fine being full of mistakes

I love this song, TOKYO by YUI. The first time that I heard it back in 2007, it almost bring tears to my eyes...I kid you not! I've never search for the translation before though, but knowing YUI and her songs, I knew that it's got to be something personal based on the way she's singing it and all. This is a cover of the song by me but let me warn you that it's far from perfect. Ack! I lost my breath near the end of the song, thus butchering it (Sorry YUI!).  I'm not Japanese, so pardon any mispronunciation that I made guys. Gomen ne! (~.~')
Anyway, here it is. 

O, and here is the translation and here is the blog that translates the lyrics for this song!

The day has come for me to leave
this room I’ve been used to living in
I’m still bewildered at this new journey

Inside the bus that’s heading toward the station
I emailed my friend

I tried to call on the morning platform
But somehow, I felt that it was different
I came carrying an old guitar
I’ve placed out all of the pictures

I let something go and take something
I wonder if it’s that kind of repetition?

This show of courage continues even in my
If I became cowardly, I would be cut off there

Inside the train that began to go
Just a little bit, I was moved to tears

This town that continues outside the window
I wished that it wouldn’t change
The person who gave me the old guitar
had said that Tokyo is scary

I’ve already stopped searching for an answer
It’s fine being full of mistakes

The red evening glow was cut off at the building
even if I endure the tears

Each journey that comes with the next morning
has its doubtful places, right?

I can’t simply choose the right t
At least I understand that

Have no idea who YUI is? Well, don't fret! You can find all you need to know about her here! ^.^
She's wonderful and very very very talented!

Decide for yourself...
I won't say that I understand your pain.
Your pain is something only you can understand.
I can't understand it.
I won't tell you that you're trying to run away from that pain.
Because that's another way of being saved.
Living with the burden of that pain or escaping from the pain...
Decide for yourself.
Because it's your life.

By Chance

This is what I made today! I learned this song by J.R.A, By Chance (You & I) on my ukulele and decided that I should make a cover of it since I love it so much. And here it is! Enjoy guys...

Lame-o's everywhere!

Currently: hyperventilating due to excessive anger.
Current location: dorm room
Current music: on a ladder from there to here i'll climb, all this clatter between my ears i find, does it matter if i can't clear my mind?

I don't appreciate jerks. Unfortunately we have plenty of them here in Malaysia. Sometimes, I wish I have a jerk detector/alert gun just so I can avoid running into them. Guys, please, please, please don't think you're so cool that you hit on girls whenever you feel like it, because you're only going to look like a big ass jerk. No, seriously, it's so not cool man, not cool at all. Have some manners will ya! What would you do if someone treats your little sister or someone that's close to you like that? Think twice before you act buddy! And don't even get me started on the leery remarks that some of these jerks say sometimes. Makes me want to kick their butt back to elementary school! When will this foolishness ends? I don't know. But I've had enough! This has got to end.

Lean on who?

Currently... : am so messed up!
Current music:

Crap! It's almost a week since holiday start and I don't even open my book not even once, or finish a single assignment yet. This is the number 1 reason's why I don't feel this semester break at all... I'm doom! My days are numbered y'all. And you know what I did this whole week? Lounging around in the living room watching television...and I'm also on the internet 24/7, watching Higashi no Eden series! Well then I think I'm gonna be off and open my book for real right now...

p/s Who have Bill Withers number by thew way? Because I'm SO wanna lean on him right this moment!

Introvert me

Currently: trying very hard not to fall asleep...
Current music: What are you waiting for? Say goodbye to my heart tonight

I've always known that I'm an introvert. But I just never really haven't thought much of it before, until tonight. I have an assignment which will due weeks from now, and my group chose to do a topic on people with introvert and extrovert personality. So I did a little research and I found a set of test questions that will determine how introvert you are. And here are some of the question:

7. I tend to notice details many people don’t see.
10. I feel anxious if I have a deadline or pressure.
16. I don’t like overstimulating environments.
19. I feel drained after social situations, even when I enjoy myself.
21. I often feel uncomfortable in new surroundings.
23. I often dread returning phone calls.
25. I find my mind sometimes goes blank when I meet people or when I am asked to speak unexpectedly.
26. I talk slowly or have gaps in my words, especially if I’m tired or if I’m trying to think and speak at once.

I answered 'YES' for all of the questions above and there are 29 questions altogether. It is stated there that the more yes you answered, the more introverted personality traits you have. No wonder I always feel like an awkward person when I am in a crowd or even in a small groups of people. Conversation are always very hard to make especially to a person whom I don't know very well or with an acquaintance. I hope that with this new information, I'll be able to be a better person.

Anyway, I'm super sleepy right now so I think I'll be off now. Bye every1!

I guess it's not to late to wish Happy New Year, is it?

Current location: Cheras
Current music:  Every time that you lose it sing it for the world, sing it from the heart, sing it till you're nuts, sing it out for the ones that'll hate your guts!

Yumm!! I really wish I could eat chicken burritos right now... O hi there! I'm Elle, (a.k.a Gadis Analog) author and owner of this little  blog. Sorry for being away for so long. It was not my intention to do so, it's just that I've been too busy straightening up my messy life and preparing to enter my 4th semester in UPM. I left this blog for about more than a month ago which was right after my semester break started, right? Well, there's a lot that happened since then, some of them are a  little too trivial to mention anyway so I won't waste your time to recap those, but I had a great year and 2010 was probably one of the best years in my life. Do I have a new year resolution? Hmmm... I'm not sure. My motto every single year is just to 'go with the flow' and I know that way, I won't disappoint anyone including myself at the end of the year. 

So how's life so far? Being a student is tiring but it's fun...sometimes! I have a few tough classes this semester though and I just hope I could do well. I managed to 'upgrade' my result last semester and I was quite happy as I didn't flunk any papers! Woohoo! But the sad thing is, I think I gained more weight now than before I said I wanted to lose it. Maybe I binging on food due to excessive happiness? 

Anyway, I wrote many blog posts actually, it's just that I never got to post it online. So maybe I'll post those blogs in my future entry. Until then, have a great day everyone!
