i love this movie [11 Aug 2009|12:05am]
[ mood | calm ]

caught this on a saturday, oh my god during the starting of the show when they showed Carl and Ellie meeting from young and growing old together and finally carl being alone, something inside me just broke and i cried!!! in the cinema!!!!

that short stretch of the story reminded me about a number of things that i could relate to in my life, and my thinking, and i really connected with it!

the show was really funny, and at the same time, touching.

i'd recommend it to everybody!

whats up! :)

i've not been blogging *feels guilty* !!!!

but in NS , life really is dull ! haha!

now with the H1N1 flu around, hopefully i'll get some time off to spend it on other aspects of my life instead of 'serving the nation'

we went to this place, called "Spizza" over @ Club Street (near maxwell market, where they also have a nice place called "Jerry's") where they serve ultra thin crispy pizzas, apparently we have a thing for crispy thin pizzas, and they had very nice pizzas! :D

there's this place called ROC (Relak One Corner) at the Beach road army market, also very nice thin pizza at reasonable rates!!!!

i just found out from my squadron mates that it costs $2k for a skydiving session in australia / NZ , hmmmmmmm !!! makes me wanna go try when i finish NS !

i really need to get my life in check , now i'm still freelancing IT services while looking around for suitable places to study mass comms or journalism when i finish NS in March next year, and then its off to working life , have to save some capital up and maybe start a small business or something, well gotta see if it all works out in the end! as it goes, the dreams you follow will be findin' you~~~

well maybe i'll just buy a 4D ticket from time to time and hope i strike it big
wishful thinking. hahaha!

wow i took the time to visit my old blog, @ Blurty.com

[ mood | happy ]

today was rather uneventful ~~~ had a nice lunch with irene :) can't eat much stuffs due to wisdom tooth bleeding :(

we will be planning what places to go on our HK trip this coming sunday :D :D :D
just wanna let zynnie know , we found her post VERY INFORMATIVE :D :D :D thanks man!!!

however i am suddenly reminded of two people.

I'd like to say to them :

all those years ago
When you two got married
and all those things happened,
no tolerance, no forgiveness, no consideration for collateral damage,
and then decided to separate
leading separate lives now,
with the people you both are stuck with ,
i do not even know whether you both are happy or not,
did you both ask yourselves when you signed those documents,

(damn that jay chou song title fits perfectly here)
说好的幸福呢 ?????

somethings i'll never know, as much as i'd like to find out.

some fishing place!!!

first time trying such fishing! hahahaha!!!!

we took pictures with a real-life puffer fish!! the sort that bloats up!!!

after that we went back to the main island for some really DELICIOUS mee sua (mian xian??? rice noodles in some super nice broth!!!) and they had fun bbq-ing these clams or oysters or whatever i did not eat them (don't eat shellfish stuff much!!)

dessert store!!!!!

after dessert we went to another beach ... to learn how traditional fishing is done!!!
apparently its just taking a mound of rocks and moving it to another location in the shallow water , and all the fishes and crabs and whatever will go and hide in the rocks!! and u take a net and surround the rocks and then move the rocks away and close the net~ voila!! u have caught some stuff!!! omg its really an eye opener i NEVER knew you could catch fish and stuffs with just rocks and a net!!!

small fishie on my cheek ahahhah!

the super mound of rocks that we used to fish!

moving it.. . . . .. . .

take a net and surround the rocks........

pull the net towards you in a circular motion!!!!!

and ta-da!! U REALLY HAVE FISH AND CRABS (albeit small ones)

OMG THIS SONG !!! LOL!!! [11 Oct 2008|01:56pm]
Serj tankian , lead singer of "System of A Down"

his voice is like the Joker from batman!

i'm watching a series called "Fear Itself" horror show from the US and this is the opening intro! LOL!!!!

Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie

My baby, my baby
Let me know
Because you love me, you love me
Let me go
And you're my lover, you pay me
Twice my size
And on your knees you lay
In my eyes,

Take my hand and lets end it all,
She broke her little bones
On the boulders below,
Take my hand and lets end it all,

My baby, My baby
Let me go
And if you love me, you love me
Let me go,
Cause I'm your brother, your brother,
Have some pride,
And now you love me, you love me
Then die tonight

Take my hand and lets end it all,
She broke her little bones
On the boulders below,
Take my hand and lets end it all,
Broke her little bones
On the boulders below,
And while she fell I delightfully said,

Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie

She took my hand and I let her go
She broke her little bones
On the boulders below,
Took my hand and she ended it all,
Broke her little bones on the boulders below,
And while she fell, I smiled.

Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie
Lalalalalalalala lie lie lie

update day 3/4 of TW 2008 later tonight!

taipei 2008 - part 1 [06 Oct 2008|08:47pm]
[ mood | amused ]

hahahahahahahha sorry dardar DUNCH KILLS ME!!!!!!


Honestly i was the one of the oldest there in my "section" or room which consisted of 13 ppl.
honestly the majority of them were JC boys, 18 or 19 years old.

What can i say , i was glad i passed outta there , maybe it's me i dunno but i found their behaviour and the way they talked very childish. Oh well! i was very glad to have booked 2x tickets to taiwan !!! Finally go there to have a breather with irene and hope for the future posting to be in a place with less "Jialat" ppl.

Terminal 3 - flight SQ878 - 13th June 2008 !!!! first time sitting an airplane from T3. and its from SIA! Woohoo! damn pain coz $$$$$ spent but Jetstar wasn't anywhere cheaper by alot so just heck it and wacked SQ tickets!

SQ878 SIN/TPE 13JUN 1230pm/1710pm Seat:52J,52H damn i was so happy to see this info

felt all warm and fuzzy just to see the info! REALLY! LOL!

a little "Pre-Flight" picture

going to airport we always try to eat a favourite thing there - POPEYE'S!!!!
gotta love their cajun fries and mashed potato!!!!! not to mention their nice muffins also!!!

Bought some delicacies from Bengawan Solo for our taiwan friends :)


Sit plane to taipei liao!!!!


Reached Taoyuan Intl' Airport @ taipei! WOOHOO!!!
THAT SONG....... that Song keep ringing in our ears since KTV session.....

我的阿妹妹 快來和我跳阿哥哥 Go
我知道你看到是我 妳不會說No
我不是油頭葉教授 我的Honeys都叫我熱狗 for show
女孩 就是喜歡你台台 等等去家裡轟趴 要不要來
只怕你掛的太快 明天要去廟裡收驚拜拜
How High ? We Can Kiss The Sky !
人生海海 我們不會只是 Stand One Night
One Night In 墾丁 我留下許多情
你是我的可口可樂 幫我解渴 看我穿著就知道我玩饒舌
不用說我壞話 因為我有順風耳 
如果是你肚子大 我帶你去看順風婦產科

我愛台妹 台妹愛我 對我來說 林志玲算什麼
我愛台妹 台妹愛我 對我來說 侯佩岑算什麼


first stop : Raohe night market!!! We went there with our friend Emily :) she's the girlfriend of Mike, whom we met the last trip!

some super hidden corner shop but apparently its been at Raohe for many many years already according to Emily :)

Some of the items we tried there:

Mee sua ??

Glutinous rice (omg it was yummy)

and some pigs organs thingie but i dun really take it so irene took most of it HAHA!

after eating back to walking Raohe market :)

Some famous spiced meat buns :)


next nearby had this dessert branch called "鲜芋仙"

they have really nice desserts i feel! :)

very nice chewy things they add to the iced desserts! its like ice kachang but got "Chewy" sweet potato and other stuffs! and chewy mochi ice cream lol!

lol mike and emily parked their car in a multi story automated carpark building, its the first time me and irene saw such a thing! :)

i was so tired when went to their house. i just dropped on the bed! lol !!!!! irene took a picture of me . gawd so un-glam!!! LOL!!!

That was Day 1!!! :D

Spent the night at our taiwan friend's house :)

In the morning wake up go down to do a little exploring and guess what i found!!!!
They have an eatery at Geylang road in SG too! :) quite well known 24hrs shop for soyabean and youtiao lol

over here they got other stuffs !!!

at another smaller Airport......

turns out, our friends are heading to "Peng Hu" which is an island off the coast of Taiwan!
we had to sit a domestic flight over which took a little over 45minutes :)

On the flight towards Peng Hu island

we were part of a small tour group, about 10 ppl, all of whom are friends of mike & emily.
We got on cabs from the local airport at Peng Hu to reach our destination, some hostel :)

the islands scenery was very pretty but a pity it rained when we just got there!

The Motley crew!!!

our room key lol

nice little cosy room inthe countryside~~~

And when i mean countryside i really mean countryside.. . . . . . opposite us was penghu's one and only main school! lol! and we wer very very near to the seaside!!!

as you can see the environment was ruined when it rained~ basket it'll all look nice and bright if it wasn't for the rain! Peng Hu rarely rains they said!

upon reaching the hostel to put down our stuffs! we went for lunch!!

some seafood restaurant??

all the damn fresh seafood (coz majority of penghu ppl all catch their own seafood and cook one !!!)

SUPER SPRING ONION SOUP! it was very tasty coz got ikan billis boiled with it also! TOO BAD IRENE CANT HAVE IT HEE HEE SHe hates spring onions!!! lol !!!!

now for her favourite the oyster omelette lol

NOW THIS IS AWESOME!!! PUMPKIN vermicelli!!! IT WAS damnnnnnnn nice!!!!!

check out the fish , guaranteed irene wont touch it at all. Look at the bombardment of spring onions!!!!

after that we headed to some crab museum that was opened in peng hu, apparently they got alotta the worlds species of crabs , dead or alive and other flora and fauna of the deep sea!

There was this temple in Penghu that had an underground cavern that housed huge old tortoises!!!!!

when i heard tortoises we had to go there to take a look hahaha!!!!

i'm inside taking lead

that pool that got the old tortoises!!!!!

aiyah they swim so fast here and there this was the only decent shot i got of them!!!!

raining like crazzy over there !!! had to improvise and buy some really caveman looking raincoat lololol

so this was what danshui looked like in the older days

CACTUS!!! THEY DRINK cactus juice and eat CACTUS flavoured ice cream!! LOL!!!!! it's quite tasty. :O

dinner @ pork ribs noodle stall ( they said its veryfamous there)

exploring the streets of penghu at night!!!

Tang yuan but meat inside omg!!! very big sized, not your usual small tang yuan!!!

back at the hostel!!
rest and concluded day 2 !!!!

[ mood | indescribable ]

this drama is really very very nice~~ very touching!!!! based on the autobiography of this dude by the stage name of Lily Franky who lives today still in japan! everytime i remember the scenes! omg!

Every moment without you
Seems like eternity
I'm begging you begging you come back to me

Hard to say goodbye
I can’t smile with you anymore
I want to know
Where did we lose our way?

Winter breeze hurts gently my heart
I know I don't need to be alone
Can we go back to the precious days when our love was strong?
Can you tell me how?
And when a perfect love goes wrong
Somebody tell me how you get things back

Every time I was holding you,
Seems like eternity
I'm asking you asking you comeback to me
Hard to say goodbye
But I'll take sweet memories
I want to show everything I've got from you

Someday sun will shine
And I will walk by myself
Cuz I'm able to feel you even though I'm away from you
Tears are not in vain when I cry
If you're smiling somewhere
I realized some parts of your tenderness

Every moment breathe at you
Seems like eternity
I'm begging you begging you come back to me

Hard to say goodbye
I can’t smile with you anymore
I want to know
Where did we lose our way?

Winter breeze hurts gently my heart
I know I don't need to be alone
Can we go back to the precious days when our love was strong?
Can you tell me how?
And when a perfect love goes wrong
Somebody tell me how you get things back

Every time I was holding you,
Seems like eternity
I'm asking you asking you comeback to me
Time to say goodbye
But I'll retain sweet memories
I want to show everything I've got from you
