heyyy.. nothing much to blog about today.. just that my uncle's coming down tonight. yay!
my personal top 10
1. Daniel Radcliffe
He's cute, rich & not to mention, young. Definitely deserves a place on the peak of the list.
2. Chester Bennington
If he was not married, he'd hit Daniel Radcliffe off the shelf already. He's a musician & has a great sense of humour. A great combo.
3. Milo Ventimiglia
Also known as Jess Mariano from Gilmore Girls. Bad boy coolness is the main reason why he's here.
4. Rob Bourdon
Shy drummer of Linkin Park. Being INCHES away from him made me realise he's cuter up close. Oh yes, & he's also known as one of the greatest drummers in the world.
5. Tom Welling
Back when Smallville was all the hype, my friends & I always pictured him as our Maths teacher, going, "Do you understand, girls?" hahahahaa.
6. Jake Gyllenhaal
I like his boyish good looks in 'The Day After Tomorrow' :D
7. Jared Padalecki
Also known as Dean Forester from Gilmore Girls. Good body. End of story.
8. Chad Michael Murray
bleh. He's cute, no matter what you people say. Sophia Bush is one lucky girl.
9. Benji Madden from Good Charlotte
erm. babyface/punk cute?
10. Eminem
He has HUGE talent, this guy. Oh, and he has a warped sense of humour too.

Day 19.
See that? That's how long I've been sick for. I hope I get better soon... sigh
on the bright side, my pc monitor & printer is back!! yay!! I must say, hp is efficient when it comes to service... they gave us a new unit!!! & kor kor got his new optical mouse from the fair, so he's giving me his old infrared one.. :D
today's lyrics. thanks to my dad's good taste. *grins*

What would you think if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And I'll try not to sing out of key
I get by with a little help from my friends
I get high with a little help from my friends
the beatles
a little help from my friends

my dad has finally decided to prescribe some medication for me, saying that I need to start on antibiotics. finally.
went to church this morning, contemplated forgoing the morning one... but I dunno what drove me to tear myself from my bed... I had to suffer stares from aunties, uncles, children due to my current condition. couldn't control NOT coughing.. & the church PA system wasn't working smoothly too. since I'm in charge of the PA in school, I reckon I could've helped, knowing that the church one was done up by the same caring people who did the school's. sigh, but I was too tired, drowsy & sick to move. & I would've made the PA blow up or something too. wow. fireworks. I was so happy to go home after that.... only to find out that my mother wanted to stop by the market to buy some coconut shavings. ish. made me walk out & get for her. I was already so pissed at her complaining about me moaning & groaning about my illness. I dunno if I've mentioned this, but my mother always says that I moan & groan too much... the first time she did was at.. (what a coincidence!) church.. while she was parking. as she started, she scolded some car owner for parking in her spot, cursing too! I didn't want to rub it in her face that despite my m&g, I didn't hurt anyone's feelings, but with her scolding, even the hardest, roughest, meanest baddie would feel hurt. seriously. you're looking at the perfect example... moi!! which is why I have the confidence of a tortoise. even the 'stones' in my house have the nerve to escape from "the aquarium". kindda reminds me of me, actually. just that, to escape my version of alcatraz is... plain ol' courting death.
by the way, I do agree that I m&G too much, but I like to think that it's a form of expressing myself. :P plus, I only m&g to my folks & well, here, I guess.

Now can I get an encore
Do you want more
Cookin raw with the Brooklyn boy
So for one last time I need y'all to roar

Now what the hell are you waitin for
After me there shall be no more
So for one last time, make some noise

Get 'em, Jay

Linkin Park & Jay-Z

today is my eldest kor-kor's 26th bershday.. bring out the cake! confetti! balloons! and those paper trumpet thingies! oops, yeah. 26th. he's too old. hyuk. since he was born 26 years ago today, I decided to talk a wee bit more about him in this entry..
David Chu. (or how my grand aunt pronounces it-- rabbit. lol!) everyone 's first impression of him was... eh! you.. malay arr?' rofl. when I was a tiny tot, he was the only sib who didn't bully me too much & yelled at my other bro if he bullied me. thus, I always had a good impression of him since young. he's also the looniest member in my family. he likes to think his jokes are funny, but I always say they're kinda lamo, like my dad's. haha. I seriously don't get how he can get such a pretty girlfriend.. she's so gentle & fragile. he's so... erm.. weird? well, love is blind. (and not to mention stupid, but that's a topic for another day) did I mention that he is a crazy fella? I mean, he can just dance around the place like a psychopath. sheesh. and he has recently started this obsession with his hair.. which he likes to think, looks like beckham's. hah! right.. okok, I know I only wanted to talk a 'wee bit' about my bro, but sigh, there's just too much of his crazy antics to talk about... oh yeah, and since he began earning his own moolah, he has become very stingy. kiam siap fella.. hahahaa. he still owes me my burger king!! lol.
by the way, my other bro & I bought him a nice present months ago, hope it hasn't, like, disintegrated or something. hahaa.
p/s: still very ill. bah. I never played in the rain at all!! Honest..
+ lp isn't nominated for best video OR best rock act in the mtv asia music awards for the first time in 3 years. that means, that they won't be WINNING those awards for the first time in 3 years. you get the drift, right?

Open up the part of you that wants to hide away
You can shine
Forget about the reasons why you can't in life
And start to try
Cos' it's your time
Time to fly
Bubblegum pop princess (( Hilary Duff's )) Fly

thanks to all those with their 'get well soon' wishes. love you guys!!
am currently loading some photos for my dad. heehee.. got excuse to blog online. ;) anyways, today still ill. minus the pitchy voice, that's a good sign, right? we'll see tomorrow...
KFC & family were here awhile ago to get new specs done. *thumbs up sign* I won't be changing mine anytime soon, although I was eager to get a new pair, the optician said I needn't have to. sigh. at least can save some money for other purposes... :D

There's got to be a reason and we know the reason why
You try to put on those airs and act real cool
But you got to realise that you're acting like fools
If there's music we can use it
Be free to dance
We don't have the time for psychological romance
word up

*cough*cough* I'm still very much ill, only slept about 4 hours last night. Had a huge fight with RW before that. He's such a drama mama! kept going on & saying he'd die & bleed etc. Words, are all he needs to piss me off. I've never been so angry for the longest of times!!!!! the word 'overreacting' is an understatement for him. he kept saying I was mean by disrespecting his late mom when I never even TALKED about her. bloody nonsense! I kept using what he said to me against him. It was so convenient that his conversation was full of loopholes I could use back at him. ish.
went to my aunt's again today. really thought of cancelling. felt so weak & tired when I woke up. In the end, I was nodding in the car... didn't even know that my bro dropped me off at Paya Lebar.. too sleepy... but the trip home was interesting though... saw a cute Caucasian dude.. who smiled at me so sweetly!!! actually i think it's because of my good deed.. hahahaha. he looked quite young, with a red cap.. probably a foreign tourist by the way he was looking around curiously before entering the train. it was so packed too! I had to help push this indian lady into the train so she wouldn't get stuck between the doors. It was so cute the way she was saying that she didn't want to leave one of her legs behind... & at that moment, the cute guy smiled at me! *melts* if only I had a frigging camera phone!!! *groans*

would you rather be a host or a guest? the million dollar question of the year, folks! (ok, lame..) my dad said he'd feel more comfortable at home so he'd rather play host. pth. easy for him to say! he rarely sees his family, let alone the guests!
to those of you who do know that I'm down with a bad flu, I'm not gonna gargle salt water anymore.. I always have the feeling of drowning in the sea!! for those of you who aren't aware of my current situation, let me explain in detail... The day I fell ill was on Wednesday, 17th of November. I couldn't control my long & painful coughs beginning on Thursday, at my aunt's house. it was so terrible! trying to digest Chemistry yet fighting the urge to interrupt with a cough. in the end, I had to fight down the feeling of puking. erghh.. my throat became all sore & weird sounding on Friday... still at my aunt's abode. I sounded like my kuzzie. seriously! it was so husky & low. (& no, chrissypoo, it's NOT sexy) had a terrible time trying to talk.. coz i sounded so funny! the worst part is the coughs. they're doing even more damage to my never-gonna-be-the-same-again throat. of all the things to inherit from my mother's genes, I get her terrible coughs.. sigh..
I watched 2 movies today, Princess Diaries 2 & A Cinderella Story. I know I know, chick flicks with nothing but teenage love & raging hormones.. but I'm a sucker for chick flicks... I kindda liked Hilary Duff's movie better than Anne Hathaway's, I'm afraid. Before you start throwing rotten tomatoes at me or mutter the word, 'teenybopper', I would just like to point out that I felt the storyline was more interesting... Ok, maybe I was just bias towards the very hot chad michael murray... *melts* okok, & the funky converse sneaks I always wanted... so??? It was more surreal than a clumsy princess' dumping her fiancee at the altar. yeah, that seems fair...

I think I'm permanently traumatised & scarred for life. I was being such a foreigner on my way back from S'pore... I doubted every move I made.. almost got up the bus to Senai, of all places... lucky I walked the other way to take the right bus. after that, I was even bummed out... the causeway link auntie swotted me with her umbrella & shouted at me... :( so scary. my parents & friends were very amused when I told them about it. hmph. thanks SO MUCH. upon reaching JB, a lot of middle aged men were going, "taxi?" and I just walked past the mob, faintly hearing "taxi? taxi? taxi?" haih. anyhoo, I went through the eerie tunnel to get across the road.. EERIE is an understatement, by the way. I was half running across the frigging tunnel that smelt Baaad.. then I was verbally harassed on my way to CS.

a couple of friends & I were on national news today!!! it was quite long & although we were in the background... still could see 2 of my friends clearly smsing. tsk tsk. lucky I was looking all perky & attentive. *cough*cough* it was for the UPSR results. yeah yeah, so we weren't there to receive our results, but more to give moral support to my little friend, michelle. haha. you should have seen her parents.. grinning from ear to ear. mum even had tears welling in her eyes, even made me want to cry because I had a nasty flashback of myself 4 years back. So what if I had straight As at that time? my parents weren't there! they just went, "yeah. ok." like they hear that everyday... & there I was, watching an over-excited Indian momma caressing her daughter, kissing her cheeks, with tears of emotion streaming down her proud cheeks. *sniffle*
Oh & my mother suddenly recalled that I was to go to my aunt's place to study Chem. sigh.

our confirmation went on smoothly.. despite me looking all make-upy. my mom did it for me. it was SO HOT in church, I regretted not taking breakfast that morning.. didn't know shaun knew my Godma.. they go waaay back. anyways, took so many photos, smiled for SO LONG until my jaw hurt badly.. later, Godma took cassie, xinyu, andrew & me to vivo's for lunch. andrew didn't stop talking the whole way. lol. he was even late for work at silver planet. sad case.
oh well, i'm not in the mood to blog much, i'm going to fall asleep on the keyboard soon.. sigh.

the danga bay trip was.. wet. my sneaks got soaked!!! haha. well, we managed to catch 'Taxi' before going there by bus. speaking of buses... we were almost run down by one! I screamed & so did chalin, who was behind me. I will never cross a road with hema ever again. kysha was so right when she urged us to use the overbridge. man, it was scary... chalin actually thought I was gonna die already.. the bus didn't stop for us, some said it even gained more speed. like he was DETERMINED to kill us all. you know, in some movies, before the guy/girl becomes road kill, they just stare at what's going to run them down, without moving a muscle? and the viewers would go, "what the hell is he/she waiting for???! RUN!!!!" that happened to me last night.. it was so frightening. I thought that that night was gonna be my last & the last thing I see before I die would be big bus headlights. *weeps a little* the horror!!! that was probably why I was so miserable last night that I couldn't sleep & missed ron weasley a little.
back to 'taxi', dang, that movie was Fiiiine! so lame, but funny! though nothing beats the original, eh?

linkin park vs jay-z
I came, I saw, I conquered
From record sales to sold out concerts
So if you want this encore
I need you to scream, 'til your lungs get sore
I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless
Lost under the surface
Don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes

to see the numb/encore video, go to linkinpark.com
just to listen to this track, go to either of the sites

Today is the day of our class party, which we'll be having at Danga Bay. we invited our class teacher who replied that she'll take a rain check. mrs ignatius was upset that we didn't invite her. lol. no one said anything after that. I'm not even sure if I wanna go. but it'll be safe, imagine 20 of us just hanging out from 7 to 10. possibly with a teacher. i just have a little voice telling me not to go. (maybe because my parents aren't in town or something)
didn't go to school today coz' my parents went to KL. and my dad didn't say anything when I said I wanted to pon. haha. I even woke up at 5.30 to bid them goodbye. although they'll be home tomorrow night at 9. I was supposed to follow them to the airport, but I couldn't wake up at 4.30 to get dressed. wonder what the gundus in school are doing right now... hmm

I'm not one to generalise.. which is why I'm saying specifically that the Shell station I'm talking about here is the one opposite my school, beside a huge longkang.. Humble friends & visitors who are reading this, lend me your ears!!! You are forewarned about the poor service & hospitality portrayed by the oh so unkind people at Shell. Maybe t'was my comrades & I who spent every week loitering in their little shop. (not!) seriously, they have been very hostile & snotty towards the people who literally pay their wages. what happened to the 'serve with a smile' or 'the customer is always right'?? we, the customers have a right to stay in the shop because we actually eat the food we BOUGHT from there. it's not like we're having a cook-out or picnic? I don't see why the small Luigi looking dude has to say,"cannot wait here" to which I replied, "we're eating, not waiting." the next thing he said was, "cannot eat here either." my friends & I then stormed out of the shop, before one of my buddies exclaimed her urge to go to Esso. (which was a little furthur from our school, but no way are we gonna patronize Shell) and till then, I have not step foot on the soil of Shell. oh wait, and after months of purchasing my lunch from that place, I realised that Shell's prices are way higher than other places. although it is common knowledge that petrol kiosks often charge higher than say, supermarkets etc, the goods at Shell are even higher than normal kiosks. Daylight Robbery, much? They are exploiting the young and feeble minds of the youth, from as young as 7 to as old as 17!! and girls too, for that matter!! yes, we may be young, but we're not STUPID. obviously, the guys at Shell think otherwise. I can only do so much as a 16 year old, which is why I hope someone of high authority (hopefully the CEO of Shell. yeah right) would do something about it. like, punishing their irresponsible & irritating workers at Shell who are too nosy for their own good. one even has a disgusting habit of making weird noises at girls. eew. that's all for this blog entry. tune in next time for more of my moaning & groaning. as my mom puts it. Thanks Mom!
