starvation

the title says it all.

HUNGRY!!!!! ;A;

Cafe Cafe

i really missed my family and the food at home..after all those instant cadbury hot chocolate and mamee instant noodle that I've consumed, i thought to myself, hey~ why don't I go indulge myself in some pictures of food?!

so here I am, talking about the intangible food that interest me soooo much!

I'm talking about Cafe Cafe here!

so what is it?...

Stepping into Café Café, one leaves the mundate streets of Kuala Lumpur and is immediately enthralled by its lavish interior; magnificent Occident in this part of urban Orient. Café Café, quintessentially Parisian - echoes of the combination of Le Quartier du Marais, Montmartre together with a touch of Moulin Rough perhaps? offers those with a discerning eye and taste, a delicious smorgasbord of visual and appetising designer fetish.
Many urbanists have already claimed Café Café as their home away from home. An indulgent in luxury, rewarding with comforts of haute decadence, an escape from the harsh industrial and minimalist chic of too many modern restaurants. Here, the ones is to know enjoy privileges of classic dining, without pretentiousness. Classic yet modern, formally relaxed, flamboyantly simple. Café Café is truly a pastiche of styles that some together to enchant. A refreshingly informal place to meet freiends, colleagues, or even a special acquaintance.

Sumptuous dining in a classic European style; Café Café affords its patrons a unique atmosphere, where an opulent interior enable one's imagination and inspiration to be truly stirred...

i was immediately taken by the strong interior design (and i really do love interior design!) the majestic visuals of their restaurant, and amaaaaazing ambience. it's like... it is just visually orgasmic! i can't even explain how incredibly beautiful that place is!

it's like being lost somewhere in time and you stumbled across this fairytale like place of your dreams! (well at least my dream xD)

lets talk about their food... i mean CUISINE.

Our accomplished chef serves a repertoire of mainly French and Italian meals. Classic favourites include traditional foie gras (goose liver), which is our signature dish. We also specialise in succulent French duck breast, and for lovers of Italian food we offer pasta and risotto cooked with dried porcini mushroom. To stimulate the palate, we offer a range of mouth-watering entrees like mussels in white wine,escargots, scallops with black truffles, etc…
Lovers of desert will appreciate our range of homemade classic French and Italian foods. Cafe Cafe specialises in French dark chocolate or banana mousse. Alternatively, may we tempt you to indulge in our crème brulee – a classic French favourite. Our tiramisu comes highly recommended with creamy Italian mascarpone cheese and a touch of strong French brandy.

minus the "... strong French brandy" part, this piece of heaven on earth is actually halal. I've looked up on it, and to tell you the truth, I will be GREATLY disappointed if it's not!!! (I just tend to do research online on the restaurant that i want to put both my feet into)

eventhough the food does live up to it's name, but it's the ambience that you're really paying for. 

let's see what media have to say about it eh?

While the rest of Kuala Lumpur seems to be caught up in the wave of post-modern minimalism or nu-Oriental styles, Café Café bucks its own sublime brand of tasteful European opulence and rustic ingenuity...
[Men's Folio 2003]

With an atmosphere that's reminiscent of a favourite neighbourhood hangout on the Left Bank in Paris. Café Café is the ideal place to savour a glass of Merlot while Dalida hums Softly in the background...
[V Mag April 2004]

I don't think we're in Kuala Lumpur anymore...
[Cubes 2004]

The Café, naturally, makes a marvellous place .................. makes you feel as if you're dining at old Tante Mathilde's .
[Wine & Dine 2003]

Step inside and you will find a place full of old European charm. There is A bit of Paris, Milan and London...
[New Straight Times]

and there's more where THAT came from. Located somewhere in KL near the Jalan Maharajalela, this place is certainly to DIE for. (for me) xD

well apart from that, it's the price that really concerns me. =3= it's better to have RM50-RM100. Eventhough I think it is quite affordable once in awhile, but hey~ I'm just a girl who relies on her parents for her income xD so I can't really say anything... which brings us back to the main point here, I really miss my family *cough* especially my parents *cough* 8D

WELL!! lets see some eye popping and "oh my god!!" triggering pictures shall we?





and some pictures of the mouth watering delicacies~

the website - CAFE CAFE

GOSH I'M STARVING! OAO *fainted*

p/s info mostly taken from the website

sigh

supposed to do work... but procrastination got the best of me. from my table i could see the world outside. the sun was blocked by the clouds but the rays still could find their ways to earth. the temperature is normal but how I wish there's snow in Malaysia right now. hard wind blowing rustling the trees, the sound is like music to my ears. the distant sound of thunders adds the feeling of longing and loneliness and also serenity.

I can feel the wind caressing my face as I type. I can smell the light scent of rain in the wind. Is it going to rain? the wind is blowing again. the scent of rain is getting stronger. sometimes i wish my window is bigger that what i have now. in away, it could help with my room ventilation, but it also calms me down.

maybe I should take a nap for awhile. maybe i could see things in a different point of view and vigor.

yes.

I should.

zzzz....

p/s sometimes, nice weather like this made me feel nostalgic and made me feel like typing something... different than usual. yeah...

to malaysia from japan

we had a live conference the other day. and the talk was conducted by none other than HAZMER! -this is his blog-

it was a very interesting talk indeed! he talked about Japan and the doujin culture there and the differences between Japanese people way of thinking (especially when it comes to games, graphics and all those related stuff) the events there, the culture there, and how painful it is to burn your own wallet just to buy some anime/game/manga stuff there. LOL

it was a very fun talk too. TOA should do this more often! 

some pictures... (need more picture man!!! =3=) taken by orilia


there's a One Piece poster at the back!!

yeap~ actually there's a lot to say, but i just couldn't think of what. =_= aish... just 2 words, AWESOME CONFERENCE!!!!! xD

after that the event continued with the MM GOT GAME competition. they compete using Nintendo Wii. It was hell lotta fun! I wish I had entered. sad. there's 2 types of game they played, Wii Sports and Wario which is for the finalist.

it was fun to watch lecturers playing xD THEY ACTUALLY ROCK! and they won they're round too which was awesome. until they back out from competing against the finalist. pfft... was hoping to see the lecturers kicking those students butt! xD

OH! before the live cast started, 2 of the seniors presented their work. It was awesome! after they finished their talk, I was thinking to myself, WHY didn't I take Advance Digital Media again?! OMG! its soooo much fun! OAO but I love video too, so I don't regret my choice of elective. Still got next term's Game Art & Planning subject! was talking with the tutor, Reuben..? i can't rmmbr his name. I asked him whther it is compulsory for me to take advance digital media if I wanna proceed and take game art & planning? he said it is not! YAY! but there's a little bit of scripting for that class. WHICH IS FINE FOR ME 8D i can't wait!

yeap... so basically that's it~ congrates to Apocalyse group for winning 2ND PLACE in the wii competition~!

can a low standard gets even lower?

It is now almost 3 am. And I feel like ranting (was gonna use b*tch*ng..but nah~) about penpals who don't respect their friend!

I was doing my work today, and I received this sms from this guy, who got my number from my ex-highschool friend. Due to the feeling of respect towards my highschool friend, I replied that guy. and this was last term. After long time of not sms-ing me... he started to text message me again. OK~ fine! I'm a cool person! I can talk with people I don't know~! like wth~~ if my highschool friend trusts him until the verge of, SPREADING my phone number around~ SURE~~! maybe he is a cool guy~! I CAN TAKE IT!!! 

In the afternoon, he asked my what I was doing, I replied I was having lunch with a bunch of friends and chatting with em, WHICH actually means "GO AWAY..I'M BUSY" but he kept asking me stuff! FINE!! I'm a very AWESOME person!! so i play along~ he asked me what did I order, I said I'm not hungry. and he replied "on diet?". TELL ME PEOPLE!! WHICH PART OF "I'M NOT HUNGRY" is identical with "I'M ON A DIET" ???!!!! (well cept for the "i'm" part LOL!!) HAR?!! WTF! still I go along... trying not to... graze his feelings. so I said "no I'm not". If I am that guy, and have just a little bit of sense in me, I will be like... "oh...her answer kinda short...must be busy..." and will tell myself "maybe I should sms her later" . BUT NO! he insist on sms-ing! so i decided not to entertain him any further.

just now, 9.45pm, he sms-ed again. and I just saw the message like at 2am something. so ok... just to be polite, and nice and the usual cool me~~ I'll just reply him~ "oh..sorry, didn't see your message" then he replied... ALMOST INSTANTLY!! (GOSH THIS GUY IS LIKE GLUED...no CEMENTED to his phone!!! OAO) and he said~ "tak tido lg ke syg?" which in perfect Bahasa Melayu tatabahasa is "Tidak tidur lagikah sayang?" I was like.... THAT'S IT!!! I'M AT MY LIMIT ALREADY!! I am very sure I am not his bloody "SAYANG" and NOT EVER GONNA BE UNTIL I DIE!!! so I said... In English... (I always reply him in English) "I hate it when you use the word 'sayang'. You sound like a pervert, and I despise perverts" and I hit send.

some of you guys, that is an even better person than I am, might 've been thinking.. "omg ifaaa~ so bad!! say like that" but honestly... I don't regret it. then he replied, "sowi k.tengah buat pew?" which means "sorry okay. Tengah buat apa?" (I JUST HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE ACT CUTE IN SMSES!!! I mean, if it fits the person... then I'm ok... but this guys... well he just SUCK at it!!!! i mean "...pew" ?!! how can it be from the original "...apa?" or "...pe?" to the disgusting "...pew?" ???!!!! BLOODY HELL!!!! could he drop his image even LOWER?!)

so i replied him..."...I just don't get guys like to use the word 'sayang'. I'M NOT YOUR GUYS PUNYA 'SAYANG' OK!..." then he replied again..."kalau you duwan me to kacau, nvm la" so i said something bout, it's not the problem of you disturbing me or not. I don't mind people sms-ing me! REALLY!!! I will try my best to reply even!! it's the problem of not respecting your friends when you converse!! I don't even know him well for goodness sake!!! then he giv me his reply "...taknak tido ke? pandai cakap je". HOW DARE HE!!! that BLOODY &#%@*$ SON OF A ^#@&$*@!!! HOW DARE HE!!!!! from the point of hitting the bottom of my 'penpal standard bar', he just volunteered to kill himself by jumping out of it, made a dive, hit the bloody cliff wall, and hit the ground on top of sharp stones in a very ear deafening splat!!!! HOW DRAMATIC CAN IT GET?!

so in my pissed off mood i replied "fine...but just rmmbr, the way you speak, reflects yourself" and just like that... I put down my phone vowing not to reply any sms from him for tonight...

first things first... WHY!! OH WHY!!! most of the male penpal that I got, sounds like a pervert?!! they smsed you for 1day, and start asking for your pictures and "can I call you and listen to your voice?" and even to the extent of "boleh jumpa tak?". i mean... HELLO!!! I don't bloody know you!!! why should I do what you want?!!!! then they keep pushing~ and shoving~ and elbowing~ without putting ANYTHING in that THICK HEAD OF THEIRS, that I just simply don't trust them yet to do all those stuff! and with them pushing me like that everytime they text messaged, they still wonder WHY i don't wanna meet, or give them my picture, or even answer their call. I just can't imagine what they will do with my picture if they get their hands on them *shiver* and to meet outside.... *shaking* I DON'T EVEN WANNA THINK ABOUT IT!

one of the sad point of all this is that, they are all malays... MALAYS!!!!! not to say something bad about this one of the beautiful race in Malaysia (im just being a bit naive here for a bit), because I myself is a Malay, but HOW CAN THEY DO THIS?! their like, destroying the image of this race in my own opinion! it's not a perfect race to begin with, but with this kind of human being around, it's making the situation even worst. I just can't help shaking my head slowly. disappointing. embarrassing. I feel sad with all this thing. Can't we just have a normal penpal nowadays? the guy who smsed me even reach the level of asking where I'm gonna further my studies and maybe WE could go TOGETHER!! NOT IN A GAZZILLION YEARS!!!!!!!!!!! WTF! even after i told him some logical explanation to why I CAN'T study with him (i said "well..I don't think that's possible" SIMPLE AND PRECISE!) he still can ask me "why did you say that? :(" ....then I replied "unless you are taking courses related to multimedia and got videos, web and all those stuff, which I don't think is even close to what you're doing now, then who knows..." =_= how THICK can he get?!

I am not a bad person. I make friends quite easily sometimes. and my friendship, i can proudly say,most probably can last forever (LOL for now). but after what you guys read up there, Im sure you guys will think it's a bit too... harsh. but i think he deserves it. I can't respect someone enough, if that person itself don't respect me and everybody around me. its as simple as that.

so lastly... i wanna say thank you to all you guys who has been bunches of kick ass friends withme this past years~~~ i appreciate you guys, and I would do anything for you guys as long as I can do it and without any complaint because you guys rock my world!!!!!

GOSH!! talking bout all this is making my eyes feel heavy! ,,, or maybe because I'm just sleepy... xD but i feel GREAT after typing all this down~!! mwahahaha!

......GOOD NIGHT!!

p/s made Tony-tony Chopper's (one piece) 3D hat today in lightwave!! lightwave is AWESOME! xD

2nd not so random post 4 today

so.... I've decided to continue my studies after college. hmm... but I don't know how, who, what to do... =A= HOW?! does the offer like... fall from the sky? does it grow on trees? does it appear on your bed the next morning?! HOW?!!!!

well...that is part of the things that is in my head when i think of continuing my studies. I wanna try studying outstation. some place which the name doesn't start with an "M" and filled with "alaysia" 8D  i wanna try to live in new places. new sceneries. new... perspective. I want to gain new experiences which excludes Malaysia for once in my life!!

but of course, those questions up there, came along with uncertainty like...
- the way people communicate out there. (saya punya bahasa orang putih very the bad one!!)
-what if I can't understand a word they're saying?!
-what if they saw me with tudung, they will be like... OMG! terrorist!! (LOL! where did that come from! xD)
-what if i got no friends there? ;3;
-what if I got lost...
-what if I can't find any food there? HALAL food?
-what if I got stabbed!! and died on the spot?!!
-WHAT IF I'M SUDDENLY BROKE!!!! OAO THE HORROR!!!

what ifs... what ifs... i can't help thinking about this!! it makes my head feels like EXPLODING into gazzilion pieces!! O_O but with it... came also the positive side!!

-OMG!! new friends! OwO
-NEW SCENERIES!
-new school!
-new environment!
-new life style!

all those new things that I've never experienced yet!! xD and not to forget... the proud feeling that i could give my parents when I reach that level of study!!! but for now... looking at my.. not so average... well maybe average achievement... I'm not so sure anymore... can I really get out there and pursue the next chapter of my life? (walaowei! xD) or will i be stuck in this country forever and be blind to other places in the whole world? It's never to early to do research on this matter... which is what I'm doing now... xD ;;

no! NO!!! I don't want that to happen!!!! 

but the main question here is...

HOW?! and WHAT IS THE 1st STEP THAT I SHOULD DO?! 

help!!!!

Paranormal?

Nothing thrills me more than a nice freakin' ghost story! 8D so I was searching for some ghost stories one day (I know... I know... I should be researching for design method's class *cough*) and I came across an articles about Count Dracula 8D (I LOVE VAMPIRE!!!! ) I knew Ct. Dracula is evil... but I didn't know he was THIS evil! O_O look at this!!!

Vlad was known for his cruelty. There are paintings of him, having lunch while enjoying to see people die on the sticks. It was said that after a great battle there was a whole forest of sticks with impaled Turkish soldiers, which made the Sultan withdraw in horror, although he had the better chances to win the war.
There are also stories about Vlad killing children and drinking their blood in front of their parents. Also, cooking people and solving the poverty problem by burning hundreds of poor in a locked off building.


wow... but then they said he has this one quality in him which was JUSTICE. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?!! xD hahahahaha!! vampire stories never cease to amaze me man.

how dracula died... well he was killed by his own brother, Raul. hmm... interesting.

well, I like ghost stories... but there's only 1 type of ghost I'm really scared of... Zombies =A= (are they even considered as ghost? more like living dead...) I dunno why, but they just freaked me out!!! you can see me watching stuff like Thai ghost story, Japan horror movie and all that, but you won't catch me watching zombie stories! Especially alone!!! i'd rather watch educational channel! wtf! Zombies freaked me out _-_ yeah...fine...enuff talk about zombies *shiver*

I feel very thankful to god because till now, there's no unusual entity have ever disturb me yet. (I hope it stays that way!!!) I mean... I dreamt of stuff like that, but it never actually happen to me in real life. It happened to my sister before tho. She was possessed but my parents doesn't allow us to get close to her until she's well enuff. I rmmbrd my sister asked me to accompany her in her room at night. (because she said she saw some... "stuff" there) but i only lasted 1 night u_u when I think of it now, i feel guilty and funny at the same time xD what kind of sister am I?! geez! xD

I recalled my eldest brother did some test on me when I was in highschool, something about how "strong" am I towards all this stuff. so he stared at my eyes and was reading something... and he said If i blink early that means I'm "weak" or something... and I didn't blink. so he said "oh... u got a very strong protection." or something like that. when I think back... xD nobody ever won against me on a staring battle LOL!! (it's all in the wind direction xD) so i think he was just joking around _-_ pfft... but people tend to use me as shield whenever something spooked em xD perhaps it's got to do more with my oh-really?-well-nothing-will happen-one-la attitude xD ( highschool, PLKN...lol) somehow it's funny when I think back. It's all in our head. I mean, of course paranormal stuff do exist, but it's all in our head. It's like... "hey~ if I don't disturb you, plz don't disturb me~" kinda thing?" instead of freaking out.

there's 1 time during my 3month national service where there's this one period of time it like the "ghost period"! xD we were living inside a chalet. So during this incident, some of the people from other chalet slept at my chalet, and nobody wanna sleep near the door! they're like...freaking out =_= so I have to take up that spot? and tmrw morning... the person who slept in the middle of the bed was bothered by some entity! LOL ( i love that word... sounds pro like that xD) she said she heard some sound saying something like " I just wanna play" like wtf!!! and I had a very peaceful night! xD hahaha!! but sometimes my friend told me, my "bravery" should have a limit. OF COURSE I HAVE A LIMIT!!! I'll be the 1st person to run if I saw zombies =_= trust me!! *cough* they actually scolded me 1 day when I went to toilet at 2-3 am. ALONE. kind of creepy actually



it looks bigger than the picture... and darker... so that's my chalet. and the toilet is like this 2 HUGE warehouse! with a LOT of cubicles... and sometimes the light will flicker on and off. can you imagine how creepy it is? but somehow I don't really feel anything... so I went and came back safely. BUT, there's this 1 incident when I almost reach my chalet, I heard a cat miao-ing. so i was like "wth... got cat kah?!" so i turned my head here and there... then the dustbin next to me suddenly fell down! like somebody kicked it! O_O but I swear there was no cat around! so i was like.... "what the f..." so I ran back to the room. and sleep. CREEPY! 8D but maybe it's just me~

hmm... and got this 1 time, this girl was possessed and keep saying she wanna go home. at 1st she looked normal, but she get hysterical by the second. So i was standing next to her. We can see that her eyes is slowly changing... (as in... it's just not her anymore... her eyes were blank...) then she began staring at the people around her... (there's like 4--5 other people including 1 teacher) so the 1st person she stared at was me... can see her eyes trying to "pierce" you!! LOL! it's very sharp!!! and I keep staring at her till the teacher realized what I was doing and she pushed me and said "DON'T LOOK INTO HER EYES!!!!!" and i was like... "wha....?" they said, whenever people got possessed, it's not safe to look into their eyes. because that thing that is inside' could get into you. so i was like... "oh.... yeah...i forgot..." LOL! (I heard of it somewhere b4...) then the possessed girl look down... then one of my friend went to my back and looking at the girl over my shoulder when he head suddenly snapped at us! like SUPER fast! O_O and my friend freaked out xD she was hugging me till i couldn't breathe LOL! then the teacher slapped the girl xD (not my friend, but THE girl)..... 

nothing really bad happened to me... which I'm very thankful for!!! 8D ........ my goodness... I'm talking bout weird stuff again O_O ;;;; what the heck!? O_O ... i better start my work now! random storytelling stuff is over. _-_

the conclusion here is..... don't think too much...~ _-_ ;; swt

p/s ... why do I have the feeling I've told this story before? =_= ;;

you know~the usual stuff...

8D so... actually this post was created due to my procrastination habit. ("anything but work!" is my other motto LOL) I've got nothing to say really in particular... spend my time yesterday with Aurelia and Steven (he doesn't even know my name... =_= ) playing RockBand2! it was awesome and I felt awesome! tried playing the guitar 8D which i think I'm a bit good at... tried the bloody drum (which i totally suck at playing) and sing~ which I enjoyed more than the guitar and obviously the drum 8D well.. I know my voice is like a chocked frog, but It was fun nonetheless xD then we played some other games. I beat aurelia in a fighting game 8D which I'm super uber happy till wanna die d (IN YOUR FACE ORILIA!!! IN YOUR FACE~~!) xD lalalalla~ xD i think the game was called rag doll kung-fu, plastic face. After all the joystick spinning, and body jumping and hand swishing and screams~ we watched our man Steven *sound of distant cheering at the back* play his shooting games~ he totally rock LOLOL xD

well honestly, after not playing Playstation or other types of consoles for a long time, my hands got a little bit stiff. But I'm glad I still got my gamer instinct in me. Used to breath, eat, drink and sleep game once. xD I doubt people will believe me if I told em this. People just grew up which includes me too. I think, my passion for anime, manga is slowly leaving me. Replaced by a new interest in videos, blogs, vlogs, and all those graphic-ky stuff xD but it is still there somewhere. Just like games. A bit lazy to play... but once I hold the joystick, it's like my childhood experience and my love of games revisited me again xD and I can't seem to take it out of my head! O_O i think... i used to be...I must've been!! an addict once. whew... scary. I remembered 1 time during highschool (PMR season I think...) I was playing games... *flashback*

mom : why don't you stop playing those games and go study?!
me : *mumbles* ooo... *continue playing*
mom : your exam is getting near!
me : it's saturday tmrw la mama... let me rest for today! *eyes still on the tv monitor*
mom : suit yourself... I'm going to sleep.
me : k~~~

*after...a few minutes...*

me : *heard my parents room door open and turn my head* eh mama... I taught you said you wanna sleep?
mom : IT'S 5 IN THE MORNING!!! and you still haven't stop playing!??
me : err.... aha~~~~~ 8D *show cute face*

this really happened u_u cept that we were speaking in bahasa melayu xD

well other stuff... was blog-hopping and surfing again the other day (like I ever stop surfing pfft.. xD) so I opened Youtube. and 1 vid caught my attention. something about a zit oh his arms xD LOL!! and I was hooked with his vlogs xD hahaha! after watching his videos, I was thinking of trying to do a vlog too. so me and KaRo tried, but we just suck at it xD lalalala~ maybe I'll do it some other time... it just felt... weird talking to a camera. I love talking to people and hear them replying back, but camera just don't talk much you know LOL! xD so it's a bit... awkward xD but, if you guys saw me on youtube or something, don't get shocked haha! xD (well actually...once upon a time, I used to post vids on youtube.. but i doubt anybody would find it 8D)

vlog of the guy I like so much~


some of his vids~

5 FACTS ABOUT KEVJUMBA

I KEEP SAYING MYSELF SUCK!!!!! OAO WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!!!!! *slap* cool down ifa... chill...chill... *inhale~exhale*... yeah~

Typography Motion Graphic Design

so today I bloody forgot to bring my design frames to school u_u resulting only me didn't get my critique. very malu ORZ xD once again... this will be a great lesson to me for today~ aih... so here it is...

1st frame : decided to do something related to pixel art (no...it got nothing to do with that TOA event.. it's just coincidence) mostly focused on those pixel games.   

2nd frame : this one is all about stationery sets. brush, inks, colors, doodles, paper, etc... related to those tools 8D
 

3rd frame : was thinking of making some islamic design related. But got stuck whenever I think of how to relate and incorporate islamic elements on to the typography. so this on was the 1st idea I thought of, but the last to be done.

yeap!! that's it!!

on other note....

ZEE AVI ALBUM IS OUT (Tuesday, 19th May-in the us) !!!!!

Yuna

well 2nd time updating~ I just HAVE to share this!!

*****

It was in Sabah when I 1st heard the song, in the car I was immediately hooked! So i tried asking my mom, she doesn't know, I asked my lil sis, she doesn't know also, my dad... well obviously he is more blank-er than both my mom and sis bout this xD so i recorded it...and unconciously deleted it =_= before I even get to listen to any of the lyrics! BLOODY HELL I KNOW! so I have to let it go ;3; sad...but true.

so the 2nd time I encountered this song was inside the taxi with Karo on our way back from the airport to home. So I immediately record the song! (ON MY LOW QUALITY PHONE MIND YOU!) by that time, the taxi driver was talking on the phone... so yeah... eventually, the song that I recorded was lost behind the taxi driver's voice =_= DOUBLE BLOODY HELL!!

so finally... after accompanying Orilia watching Akademi Fantasia final yesterday, one of the students I think, sang the song!!! LUCKY ME!!! so I jotted down the title ot the song and downloaded it! 

the song is GORGEOUS! after listening, I ended up researching on her 8D 

here's some info~



Yuna (also known as Yunalis) is a female acoustic/folk singer-songwriter originating from Pahang, Malaysia and is now based in Selangor, Malaysia. She began making a mark for herself in the local independent scene in 2007, before releasing her demo in February 2008.

life impasse...

well... 

I was blog hopping today. So i visited my friends blog and some great artists blog and feel soooooo underachieve!

I went to this person blog and can see all the great worldly achievement this person have through her photography skills. Wide varieties of clients and for sure humungous amount of money. (well if not, surely in the future she'll be swimming in it) xD so heavy heartedly (if this is even a word), i went to her online portfolio pula. and oh my god... how can i get to her standard in my own carrier/major?!

then i blog hop again...

the fact that I love to read peoples everyday activities on blogs made it an interesting "journey" when i visited this friend's blog. xD what she do, what she wear, stuff that she buy, places she went to during holidays, ceremonies, pet, family, food, restaurants, bars, friends...my goodness, the list is just...ENDLESS! she's a rather petite person and despite her saying she got bad sense in art designs, made me wanna shake her and say "YOUR ART SENSE IS NICE!!!!!" xD and all the stuff she got made me think to myself "my goodness, if i got all those clothes and make ups and shoes... my mom will get into a comma and be proud of me in the same time! and my sister will be super uber jealous, she will jump out of the window from a 2 storey high building!!" xD hahaha!!

she knows what she likes, and enjoys life in her own way. 1 of the traits that i think is very... adorable. (I don't even know how to wear eye shadows LOL) xD

then i went to 1 more awesome friend of mine and read her post about how she cooked especially for her mother, and they liked her cooking!! I AM TOTALLY UNDERACHIEVED! xD the only food that i ever got praised for was my egg tarts and my own recipe sandwich xD (which varies on occasion depending on the ingredients in the fridge at that time xD) LOL and this person made a bloody good dish!!!

*sigh* wish i could cook like her xD

then i went to this person's blog. 1 more talented photographer. looking at all the breathtaking photos made me wanna scream "OH MY BLOODY ....PUDDING!!! OAO I can't even take 1 decent picture of human being!!!!!!!!!!!" and yet he took his with great composition and amazing editing. He will probably be a great photographer in the future.

and my dSLR is tucked away in my wardrobe. untouched. I hope i can build up my photo taking skill -if I have 1- it's a waste if I didn't make use of the camera now xD

they all have their own achievements and the way they deal and went through with their life.

I wonder if I will ever achieve something in my life like the others did.
I wonder if I will ever cook an even complicated dish other than egg tarts.
I wonder if i will own my own cosmetics someday (hears a distant sound of laughter somewhere xD)
I wonder if people will view my blog, and think "oh my gosh... this girl got an amazing life!" 

well... I don't want to think a lot about this just yet. I love my life just the way it is~! xD 

for now~

i guess the life impasse will come later huh? xD

...

BETTER START MY MOTION GRAPHIC! OAO

Salvador Dali Movie?!

WHAT THE HELL!!!!!!!

so i was surfing the Apple Movie trailer as usual (because it's on my main home page) and I saw this poster of a new movie called LITTLE ASHES and realized the guy on the poster looks familiar. whatdya know... it was ROBERT PATTISON!!!! with SALVADOR DALI STYLED MOUSTACHE!!! BLOODY HELL!!! so I clicked it. and oh my god... it's filled with gay-ness!!!! xD woohoo!!!!!! I guess this movie is going onto my must-watch-movie list then xD



some...err...synopsis..?-

In the midst of the repression and political unrest of pre-Spanish Civil War, eccentric artist Salvador Dalí and renowned poet and revolutionary Federico García Lorca find their artistic and sexual freedom. The two form a bond challenged by their fierce ambitions, their friends, the struggle between a love for Spain and a love for each other. In 1922, Madrid is wavering on the edge of change as traditional values are challenged by the dangerous new influences of jazz, Freud and the avant-garde. Salvador Dalí arrives at university at the age of 18, determined to become a great artist. His bizarre blend of shyness and rampant exhibitionism attracts the attention of two of the university’s social elite — Federico García Lorca and Luis Buñuel. Salvador is absorbed into their decadent group and for a time Salvador, Luis and Federico become a formidable trio, the most ultra-modern group in Madrid. However, as time passes, Salvador feels an increasingly strong pull toward the charismatic Federico — who is oblivious to the attention he is getting from his beautiful writer friend, Magdalena. Finally, in the face of his friends’ preoccupations — and Federico’s growing renown as a poet — Luis sets off for Paris in search of his own artistic success. Federico and Salvador spend the holiday in the seaside town of Cadaqués. Both the idyllic surroundings and the warmth of the Dalí family sweep Federico off his feet. Salvador and he draw closer, sharing their deepest beliefs, inspirations and secrets, convinced that they have found a kind of friendship undreamt of by others. It is more than a meeting of the minds; it is a fusion of souls.

OAO I'm proud!!!! and far from disappointed with it!! I'm glad i decided to watch this movie instead of Star Trek today 8D it is absolutely worth my money!!!!!! 8D

at 1st, honestly, I was a bit skeptical on this local movie, but it is more than what I expected!!!

Her name is Rafflesia Pong (Rafflesia=largest flower in the world, which reeks of animal carcass; Pong=stink). She's a bottom-ranking arts show host who's disillusioned with "those over-rated underachievers we call artists."

He's Eric Tan (Eric=Eric, Tan=typical Chinese surname), a product designer who's just about to learn that it doesn't pay to be creative.

They both work for FONY, a multinational conglomerate whose mission statement, copied from a Taiwanese company, is to be original.

In the face of such pressure, will Eric and Rafflesia retain their artistic integrity or will they finally sell out to fame, fortune or some other nasty thing that also starts with "F"?

Art is hard. Sell Out!




Trailer


Malaysian 1st trailer



the front part makes me laugh till wanna die!!! xD

yeap... from my P.O.V. this movie hides a deeper meaning. You just have to think and look more not just the surface. all the things related to typical things that...well.. frankly speaking... us malaysian's experience/face... for example - 

1- department store staff who are everywhere but don’t seem to be around the moment you need one
2- phone calls from people that who just don't get it when the receiver said "wrong number"
3- and the desperate effort of getting taxi LOL (and the price for it too *cough*)

and a lot more!!! you have to peel your eyes open LOL! xD and since I'm a hell of a rotten reviewer... I copied this review from somewhere else -


From what could probably be deemed as Malaysia's first Manglish comedy musical film, "Sell Out!" shows its quirky and comedic side with dark humour and obvious inside jokes. Producer, composer, writer and first-time feature filmmaker Yeo Joon Han amusingly crafted an artsy film that pokes fun at almost every issue that society encounters or surrounds itself. It jokes on a variety of questionable thoughts like why Chinese people create unofficial English names for themselves, how power hungry business conglomerate bosses are blinded by profit or how ridiculous it is to have reality TV shows where society determines people's fate by sending SMSes among others.

In the opening film, the filmmaker turned the tables onto himself by introducing himself as an artsy director with very little words and pokes fun at the question and answer session which caused much frustration to the interviewer. A refreshing start for a Malaysian film. Since this is part musical, this reviewer believed Joon han when he said that all songs were sang by the casts themselves. So expect a few non-melodic tunes, especially from the half-English lead actor, Peter Davis. Heck, this film even makes fun of musicals! Regardless of that, the songs are brilliantly witty focusing on money, love, rejection, death and a couple more.

"Sell Out!" sees Eric Tan (Peter Davis) as an innocent young man who tries to persuade his bosses to market his 8-in-1 Super Soya Maker machine invention at Fony Corporation. Meanwhile, he is infatuated with Rafflesia Pong, a straightforward TV host who can't wait to out succeed her rival, Hanna Edwards Leong (Hannah Lo) in the ratings game. The true show stoppers are the CEOs of FONY Corporation played by Kee Thuan Chye and Lim Teik Leong as their characters are packed with ridiculous slapstick humour and are sometimes unfortunately, degrading. But then again, they're perfect as money-minded businessmen.

Needless to say, with all the humour involved, the comedic timing is spot on, but there are times where some sequences and gags are thrown in for no reason than to rake in the laughs. And surely, it'll be hard not to even giggle or crack a sound while watching the scenes.

Compacted into 106 minutes of pure entertainment, this is a good film to catch if you're looking for a unique element that is out of the ordinary in Malaysian films. - from here

yeap~ worth to watch. very creative and nerve racking. xD a must watch for me!!

i'll give it 9/10 (minus 1 mark for some lousy jokes u_u)

and the soundtrack is out!!!! can get it at any local video shop!!! so far i knew that Speedy, Rock Corner and Victoria...something... are selling the soundtrack which is made and paid by the director himself!! SO GET THE ORIGINAL!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY PEOPLE!!!

mother's day? i don't think so...

well... I'm not really the type of person to celebrate this kind of celebration. It's as if saying that this is the only day we should tell our mother how we love her and all that. I think it's a total pish posh. mother's day, father's day...and what next? uncle's and aunt's day? 

i still couldn't find it in me to say "happy mother's day" to her. if i did... well... it'll add up my list on the hypocritical thing that i have done. I love my mother, and i appreciate her, and I don't have to wait for mother's day to say it. and that's just me. pathetic? xD HAH!!! I DON'T THINK SO!

I LOVE MY PARENTS!!
I LOVE MY SISTERS!!
I LOVE MY LITTLE BROTHER!!

and no mediocre celebration gonna remind me for what i have carved into my heart and soul!
but then again... it could be that this day was created to remind us much more about our parents...? I am 1 confused human being =_= 

ANYWAY!!!!!~~ 8D ZeeAvi's song titled MONTE was featured in the season finale of Private Practice. amazing~!! you go girl!!! 8D

class starts today... and lastly I still wanna say Happy Mother's day to everybody. (well~ people do celebrate it~ so what the heck _-_ )

****

wth!!! O_O I went to my youtube page (yes ._. i do have 1... ahem!) no i won't tell you what video i posted =_= ;;;. i just realized there's like tons of positive remarks! O_O OH MY GOD! i'm touched ;A; but sadly, I stopped posting like almost 4-5 years ago O_O well.. maybe i should start again... but maybe post something other than what i used to post... but what??!!! O_O

Zee Avi

8D so I was on the plane back to Sunway and I was reading the Going Places when i stumbled across an article related to a girl called ZeeAvi or more known by her Youtube name KokoKaina. She posted videos of herself singing to her own songs which have this very melancholy, smooth, relaxing tones to it. But i didn't knew that before I reached home. So while on the plane, i kept reading and re-reading that article until i reached KL xD the thing that caught my eye (make it 2 eye 8D) was that she's releasing her self titled album! and i LOVE the overall feeling of her album (eventhough there's only 1 picture on that article, which is the cover) but it really caught my eyes xD

so here I am now, researching on her! 8D



Zee Avi (also known as KokoKaina) is a Malaysian singer-songwriter and musician. Her song "No Christmas For Me" is featured on Brushfire Records's 2008 Christmas album This Warm December. She was discovered as a result of years of posting videos on youtube under the moniker KokoKaina. Her single 'Bitter Heart' is currently available on the US iTunes store, and her full self-titled debut album will follow on May 19th. - WIKIPEDIA

"Born in Borneo and now based in Kuala Lumpur, 23-year old Zee Avi is the first female artist signed to Brushfire Records/Monotone. She was discovered by Raconteurs drummer Patrick Keeler, who liked a video she posted of herself on YouTube enough to send it to his manager Ian Montone (White Stripes, Raconteurs, The Shins, Vampire Weekend). As Zee puts it, next thing she knew, she was on a plane to LA to record her engaging debut record, due out in May.
She’s small in stature, but her voice is a surprisingly powerful retro throwback to some of the female artists she cites as influences: Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. But backed with her acoustic guitar or ukulele, it’s Ella in a hammock, or Billie sipping mai tais — there’s a tropical breeze here that makes me want summer to hurry up already."-www.fuelfriendsblog.com

her album!!! MAY 19th!!! i hope they will sell it in Malaysia!! OAO I will buy it!!

video and introduction on Zee Avi

Words and Music by Koko Kaina
2007


No, there won't be Christmas for me this year
For the simple reason being you're not here

There won't be eggnogs by the cozy fire
There won't be glasses of mulled wine either
There won't even be a Christmas tree
'cause you're not here to light it up with me

Oh, Santa honey, won't you bring my baby back to me?
'cause i miss him, yes, i miss him oh so dearly

I haven't sent him his Christmas card
'cause that would mean we really are apart
The Christmas stockings are as empty as my heart

I know you're away doing something good
But just this once, baby, if you could
You know you can, and you know should
'cause Christmas won't be Christmas...

without you

Two days to Christmas and i'm still waiting outside
Wishing upon a star that you'll be coming home tonight
But it was cold, it was getting late
Sadly, i crept back into bed
But then i felt a soft kiss on my cheek
I opened my eyes, and there my baby was...

with me!

My baby came back for me
Merry Christmas, baby

there are loads of other vids of hers on youtube. Just search "KokoKaina" and VOILAA!! 8D but because I feel extremely generous tonight...I'll put the link here 8D

fairly odd parents

well...if KaRo is with her SpongeBob obsession~ I'm with the 2nd best animation that comes after SpongeBob. FAIRLY ODD PARENTS!! 8D

I've always knew that Fairly Odd Parents is one of the GREATEST animation out there xD great storyline, fantastic character design, awesome soundtracks, and boy... the humors!! it's to die for! xD

so I'm gonna dedicate this post to this animation itself 8D

*********************



The Fairly OddParents is an American animated television series created by Butch Hartman about the adventures of Timmy Turner, who is granted fairy godparents named Cosmo and Wanda. 

Timmy Turner is a short, buck-toothed 10-year old boy who lives in Dimmsdale, a small suburban town with his dim-witted parents. His life is constantly miserable, due to the fact that his parents are never home, he's babysat by an incredibly mean and nasty teenager, Vicky, and that generally, no one understands him (As indicated by the show's theme song). But everything changes when he receives two fairy godparentsCosmo and his wife, Wanda, and eventually a godbrother named Poof, Cosmo and Wanda's son. Timmy learns that his fairy godparents are capable of granting him any wish he wants within certain limits. However, Timmy's immature nature causes him to sometimes ask for wishes that unintentionally result in disaster and he and his godparents must find a way to "unwish" the wish. Over the course of the series, Timmy also makes many enemies. For example, his teacher, Mr. Crocker, in contrast with other adults in the series, firmly believes in fairy godparents and has been searching for them for a very long time. He is dangerous to Timmy because according to "Da Rules", a large rulebook that defines what children can and cannot wish for and how fairy godparents must behave, if the child reveals that he has fairies, or if someone discovers their fairies, they will lose the fairies forever. Jorgen Von Strangle, a parody of Arnold Schwarzenegger, an enormous and tough fairy, personally dislikes Timmy and his fairies, although, in "Teeth for Two" he claims Cosmo and Wanda are his closest friends claiming he punches many others. Crocker is also mean because he gives all the students in his class an F in their tests, except for the very smart kid, AJ, who is one of Timmy's best friends. In many ways, his 10-year old life with Cosmo, Wanda, and Poof is filled with joy, misery and hilarious adventures. At his school, he is often bullied by Francis, a miserable grey teenager who claims to be the strongest guy in the school. - (taken from wiki)
