I know I should be studying...

...but I suddenly had a thought.


This may sound stupid.

I was reading my friend's blog and she was blogging about high school romance that sorta stuff.

And it got me thinking!

I'm 20!

I will never get the chance to experience what high school romance is all about!

No more high school sweetheart.

No more innocent "I like you because I do" sorta feeling!

No more butterflies in my stomach.

OMG...I'm getting old!

But I haven't outgrown my love for silly romantic movies. =P

Everytime I watch a movie with high school romance in it (eg. high school musical/any taiwanese idol drama series), I'd be fantasising myself as the female lead character.

*slaps self*

Before I go, just finished watching Notting Hill (I know, I'm extremely outdated) and oh my God! I loved it...but I know movies can't be real and never can be.

I love the ending song though. Enjoy!

The original version is not available for embedding so here's the remix. Not bad too! Almost similar =)

OK, gotta run!

Summer plans

I know this sounds crazy. It's only the middle of 4th week of my 2nd semester of 2nd year and I'm already planning what to do during summer!

Plans usually don't work out (based on experience), for example the Sydney trip, I can save that for another loooong post.

Anyway, yes...summer plans. Since one of my best friends, GF, won't be there when I go back home (she's flying to the US tomorrow! *sob*) I would have to entertain myself with stuff I've always wanted to do but haven't gotten the chance to.

So here's a list of things I wish to accomplish when I go back home!

Visit my baby boy in Singapore! <3

Try out different food at different places *drools*

Watch Twilight with my girl friends!! *screams*

Do my shopping early (which I dread)

Bake/cook =D

Practise my piano and hopefully get to learn guitar

Learn ballet (I MUST do it this time!)
Oh, and last but not least, get my freaking driving license!!! I just cross my fingers that the driving instructor won't be an a**hole! Hmph! Made driving a bad experience for me only.
That's for now! Stay tuned to my boring life...

Specially for Twilighters (Read: JM) XP

One of my best friends, JM, got KT and I to become twilighters by introducing the book Twilight and showing us the teasers and trailers on youtube whilst feeling extremely anticipated about the movie being released in December (we're so gonna watch it together eh?!). Yesterday, there was a book release party held in Borders. Obviously, it was the release of the 4th book (also final) and sequel of the Twilight series written by Stephenie Meyer – Breaking Dawn. As fans could dress up as their favourite characters and a prize would be given to the best dressed, KT and I thought it was interesting. So as curious as we were, we headed to Borders after grabbing bubble tea each for AUD2 (usual price: $3.90 - went during Happy Hour). I have nothing much to say about the book release party, but what the heck? A picture says a thousand words so I'll just let the pictures do the talking! ;)
"Kids" 'dressing up' as their favourite characters outside Borders

Breaking Dawn sold out completely

Forks is one of the places in Twilight
(for those who don't read Twilight)

Gloria Jeans in Borders was the venue for the event

Each group was named after those in the book

This is not the worst one yet

I think this is my personal favourite XD

I made KT join me! =P

The winners of best dressed with Borders staff (2 on the left)

Nothing much really. But it was interesting to witness a book release party? =)

The Other Boleyn Girl

Oops, excuse the bad quality of the picture.
I can't believe I actually finished reading The Other Boleyn Girl. I thought the story would be long and winding but once I started on the 1st page, I just wanted to keep on reading until the last page! Never thought I'd enjoy reading stories about the Tudor courts although I didn't quite get the organisation. It was a really interesting read! At the same time, I felt for Mary Boleyn (acted by Scarlett Johansson) - the love-hate relationship between her and her sister (and family). The story is told from Mary's perspective. While reading the book, a thought constantly crossed my mind: Thank God I wasn't born in that era! I wouldn't say much to spoil it for those who haven't read the book/watched the movie. Go check it out yourself! ;)
p/s: I just cross my fingers that the movie would be as good as the book as the book is really thick (at least for me) and the story is stretched across a period of more than 10 years.

Start of a new semester

It's the 1st day of the 2nd week of the 2nd semester and I'm blogging at the computer in uni because my comp is "unwell" at the moment and I don't wanna overstrain it =(

I'm now waiting for my mom to send me over some CDs that are needed for my comp. Gonna format my comp cause I can't stand it anymore. Without my comp, I can do nothing! Well, I can do other stuff like studying/reading my novel, but that's about it! No entertainment, no communication with friends and family! Sad...I know. If only I have TV or more ppl here to talk to. Then I wouldn't need to rely on my comp (or rather internet) so much. =S

Oh well, life's full of hurdles. And I'm motivated than ever to complete this semester cause I know that my flight back to Penang during the summer is waiting for me! ^_^

This morning I had to brave the rain to classes because I carelessly left my umbrella in my friend's car. So I reached my lecture all wet. *sigh* And the thing I hate about the rain is getting myself wet! 1, because I hate the feeling when the rain dries up, it makes u feel cold. 2ndly, cause I fall sick easily n I've been falling sick alot and mostly due to the rain + wind.

I think I'd better stop blogging as there are streams of people coming into the comp pool to use the computers and it would seem very inconsiderate of me to hog one of the comps to blog. XP

Maybe when my comp has "recovered". Till then, take care everyone! ;)
