Against Nature

By nature, I like to be right all the time at any time for any topic. Its just something I am, especially when I know I am right. I want to be right and I will strive to find ways to be right to the point its not right, but who cares, as long as I am right, everything will be alright.

However, there are some people who are more stubborn, ego, bitchy, or right than I am. Usually I will fight them off one by one, till I have nothing left. I will either prove to you I am right by doing research by showing proof or will finally give in to your truth, but only after I given it a good fight.

However, you still forcefully want to be right, refuse to acknowledge me at all, used your Veto power, or refuse to back down, I will let you be right, and will let you be right forever. Everything you said is the truth and nothing can ever bend the facts you given to me. I will agree and believe to everything you say. You are the truth and you are the fact, you are wrong only if you choose to be wrong. At this point, I agree to whatever you say, not because I actually agree, its because I don't give a shit anymore, you can go f**k your self with your f**king  points and I won't say a f**king word anymore about it. You can take your f**king arguments and be the f**king ruler of the country name S**tville. You want to be right, go f**king ahead, just don't expect me to respond to anything more than a nod, or smile, because all of it is pure lies. You are so f**ked up you don't even know I am lying straight to your face, and that is the F**king truth

Over and Over Again

Where am I going? No where actually. I am cleaning out my closet, yet again, for god knows how many times already. I really have to get rid some of these clothes, Some of these clothes has been in my possession for 11 years already. I don't even where them anymore., yet I still keep them. Some of it are very comfortable to wear, some I keep for if I fit them again, some I kept when I feel a bit on the bloated side, while some has some sentimental values to it.

Bullshit, I think most of these things need to be thrown out. Yesterday during brunch my mother and sister had an idea to have a yard sale at our house to sell off anything we feel we don't need anymore. Its a reminiscent of a garage sale or a car boot sale depending on which country you learn your English from (is there another word for this?). Anyhow I think its a fantastic idea and I do have some clothes are still new but never worn again. My mother was especially ecstatic about this because her Islamic society did a charity sale and it turned out to be a big hit.

Hmm., room still look a like my closet just threw up. One, I chose to sleep on the floor because my bed was full of disarranged clothes. At least its better than my sister, she gave up sleeping in her room entirely.

Overhead Cost

I was talking to a fellow Benz owner the other day about my old 190e.We were discussing about the ownership of our cars. I noticed he did not drive his Benz along, when I asked why, he told me, the it was involve in an accident so he drove this really beat up Kancil. He told me he had drove the Kancil for 15 years. He drives the Kancil mostly but brings out the Benz for special days. I had the same idea as he did. I wanted to get a small simple compact car that is cheap to maintain, something like a Kancil with its carburetor engine. Spare parts are a plenty and my mechanic could fix it with his eyes close. It sounds like a good idea.

My car is a rare sight in Malaysia, its rare enough to find a 2.6 engine in a W201 body but a left hand drive one? Its crazy. He told me, if I drive the car everyday, which I do actually, the overhead cost or the cost to maintain it will be high since there will be more wear and tear. I was thinking its true, since my automatic transmission is acting up and the front tires are worn out. However the car is actually doing fine despite the radiator water and wiper water light is on. When I drive it sensibly as is in driving it at around 80km/h-100km/h and resist the urge to overtake at more than 100km/h, the car doest about 13 litres /100km, its sounds bad for today standard but its normal for this car. So  one tank of fuel cost about RM93 and it goes about 400km if you drive economically. I could drive the car and match the suggested fuel economy. I guess if you keep it under 100km/h, you should get the same fuel economy as suggested by the manufacturer.

I still could achieve the suggestive fuel economy for this car even though its already 20 years old. My friend told me, if I drive something else 60% of the time and this car 40% of the time, the cost of keeping this car will be low since the parts will wear out less than driving it full time. Well at least now, I am taking it cool with this car and cruise on the highway. Other people have photography, shopping, gadgets as their hobby. I guess keeping this classic rare car, is mine..

2 weeks

Around 2 weeks ago, I suddenly had a major acne break out. I did not change my diet, not did I change my skin regime, in fact I even doubled it after I started to follow my friend doing facials. The lady that does my face told me, I had a lot of blackheads, so I set up in a battle to control it. It was perfectly fine actually, I loved that my nose is no longer bumpy, but one thing she complained about my skin is that, although its free from acne, my face is quite oily and even though she already done the extraction, it seemed to come back after a week. Actually I think within 3 days my blackheads are back. Everything was quite okay, until I had 3 days of self induced stress which I tried to overcome by listening to music, doing work and going at the gym like crazy. It worked, since I was able to overcome the problem but 2 days after I thought I solved everything, I started to break out, and it got worse by each day. When I went back to the salon, she was so surprised my face is breaking out all of the sudden. She got her guns out and started to work on my face throughly. She scrubbed twice to remove all the oil off my face, and now the extraction process included to remove the acne that is hidden in my skin. It was a really painfull extraction process but it had to be done. As usual my blackhead extraction was also painfull. Then she did something new, she said, she had to use this toner, that will sting a lot but will help with my acute onset of acne. She was being honest, it stings like hell.

My face felt like it was on fire, I actually cringe in pain. It was so shocking that the toner actually hurts more that the extraction process. At the end of the process my face was swollen a bit and there were marks of all the acne that was extracted. She told me to get a cleanser for my skin so that it will be less oily. I finally gave in and bought it. Actually it was a pretty good cleanser, it made my face felt really clean. better than Neutrogena Deep Cleans foam. I am stopping all of my lotions for a while I just want my skin to be as less oily as possible. My last facial was so painfull, I felt very tired from the pain and slept early that day.

At 27, my acne came back with a vengence. Its going to be a long recovery, just like when I had my first break out at 13. Bring it acne,  I will take your sudden appearence and I will destroy you

I am Number 4

This is another movie starring Alex Pettyfer, the other one is Beastly. I think they filmed these movies at the same time or concurrently. So now we know how Alex Pettyfer got really fit, since he does lots of his own stunts in this move.

Look, its Diana Argon (Quinn) from Glee, of all the Glee cast members she seemed to be able to get some small roles on the big screen, Burlesque was the other movie she has a role in.

Imagine you are hunted down and you had to find away to survive. You also acquired new abilities that require you to master them in a short time

At least you would have someone to give you a crash course in using your new skills and she might just teach you new ones.

Check out the trailer

Did you hear that Number One was killed in Malaysia, in the trailer :). LOL..

By the way Nuffang is giving away free tickets to this movie. Why don't you guys check it out :)

Before and After

 This was the result of anger, a powerful rear wheel drive car and a slippery road. I overtook a slow MPV that drove to close to me almost to the point that I almost hit the road barrier that only resulted me oversteered and spun the car from left to right and right to left, which only stop after I hit the road barrier. Its ironic that I avoided a road barrier which resulted me to crash into one. This was the damage which is quite surprising.
This was after repairs was done. The turn signal cost me RM50, while the body work cost me RM250, it does not look a lot in pictures, but the headlamps was pushed inside and puctured my windshield wiper tank. The bumper need to be repaired by laying fiberglass on it, while the entire front bumper needed to be painted or it won't be even which cost me RM200. So sad really.. but at least the result was good. Now the only thing that is bothering me is that now the transmission is acting up. When I drive the car will shift from 4th gear to 3rd gear out of the sudden. The only way I could make it go back to 4th gear was to shift it into neutral. I am not sure what the problem is but its gonna cost us :(. What to do, its not my car, but I do drive it so I am responsible for it.

I’ve Got the Power with Sucker Punch

Sucker Punch

I have seen the preview of this movie a few times in the cinema and I kinda liked it. The soundtrack is very rock and the girls are pretty hot. The main character reminds me of the cheerleader in Heroes. Its a very CGI based movie but then most movies showing now are, anyways.

Synopis of the movie

Close your eyes. Open your mind. You will be unprepared. “Sucker Punch” is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary.

She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls—the outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung) and the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish)—to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac), Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino) and the High Roller (Jon Hamm).

Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), their unbelievable journey—if they succeed—will set them free.

Other than looking like the cheerleader in Heroes, Emily Browning starred as Violet in Lemony Snicket A Series if Unfortunate Events in 2004. Well, now Emily is much older, blonder and has longer eye lashes. I personally think this movie would be a good movie. According to past movies, any movies that has a woman as the main character in a Superhero type movie, would usually suck and be a box office flop such as Catwoman or Elektra. If the woman accompanied by other characters, the movie would turn out very good actually. So I am definitely looking forward to see this movie.

For this Nuffnang contest we needed to write a blog post titled “I’ve Got the Power with Sucker Punch”, and tell them what we would do to escape if we were held against our will with Babydoll and her team.

I can definitely relate to them, how they used their mind to escape reality. Reality can be harsh and sometimes your mind is the only safe place to be. I love dreaming and day dreaming. Sometime I could just fly away in thoughts..

So what would I do if I were trapped with Babydoll in asylum with a lobotomy waiting for me? I am not as fit as they are and even I was as fit as they are the dream sequence, I think they have enough kick ass weapons. We got a katana, a two hand sword, a Magnum, a sniper and an axe thrower. So I think I would on the chemical and biological warfare.

 Ah my lovely recombinant surface antigen proteins that I developed.

 I'll make an aqueous solution of it so that it will be easier to use to infect our common enemies.

 A little blood sample to test the effectiveness of my biological weapon

 Some animal testing was done to check the efficacy of the recombinant surface antigen

Time to pack them nicely in appendof tubes for easier transportation

In reality I will just contaminated a batch of cookies and serve them to the guards. Once the guard is down with agonizing pain, it will give time for Babydoll and the gang to find the 5 thing that we need to escape. I hope it will give them enough time to accomplish everything that we planned...

A Change

A little change can do you good. Heck, that is what my horoscope signs says, a Sagittarius does not like routines and love to change it up. As I was frolicking in the water with friends at the pool in a condo that has a view to KLCC, but with a different host, it made me realised of all the changes that has happened. Some happened in about 4 years, some happened within weeks, some even happened through out my life time. Changes, for the worst or for the best. I can't wait for the next change.

Beastly...It's What Underneath...

A twist on another fairy tale? This time Beauty and The Beast, a classic french fairy tale which was titled La Belle et la BĂȘte.  Yup, its french. If you watched the famous Disney's version of Beauty and The Beast, you would know that the main character was named Belle, which is the French equivalent of Beauty, hence the title of the story. The Disney version of the tale managed to win an Academy Award for Best Original Score and Best Original Song while it manages to win Best Picture - Musical or Comedy in Golden Globes award. So Beastly has a pretty high bar that it needs to follow. So what is Beasty about?

Seventeen year old Kyle (Alex Pettyfer) is the spoiled, shallow and incredibly popular prince of his high school kingdom. Entirely captivated and empowered by his own physical appearance, Kyle foolishly chooses Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen), a witch masquerading as a high school student, as his latest target for humiliation. Unfazed by his cruel behavior, Kendra decides to teach him a lesson – she transforms him into someone as unattractive on the outside as he is on the inside. Now he has one year to find someone who can see past the surface and love him, or he will remain “Beastly” forever. His only hope, a quiet classmate he never noticed named Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens), may be his best chance to prove that love is never ugly.

Sounds like regular secondary/college/university story for me. Although no one is that evil.. right? right?.. RIGHT???

Anyhow.. I have no idea who is Alex Pettyfer, upon some Googling, I found out that he is English and he does have a few movies under his belt. One of the other movies that Alex is starring in is "I am Number 4" which release in the US on 18th of February 2011!!, we only get to see this movie on 24th February 2011. Beastly is however is released world wide on 4th of March but Nuffnang is giving opportunity to its members by holding a contest (like the one I am blogging now) so that we could watch in on the 2nd of March, which is like a freaking 2 days earlier from the rest of the world. AWESOME!!.. Wait back to Alex, yes he is English, yes he has a few movies under him, he is only 20 years old (same age as my youngest brother) and he has 2 movies that will be released quite close to each other. Wow, he has been quite busy.

Then we have Mary Kate Olson, you don't know who she is? She is Michelle from the late 80s and early 90s sitcom, Full House. She is the shorter, brunette, anorexic sister of Ashley Olson. I am glad she is returning to the screen. I kinda like her witch persona in the trailer. Nice!

We have also, Vanessa Hudgens, the ex of Zac Effron, the star of high school musical, and one of the many artist who have their nude photos uploaded into the net. She only 22 and done so much ;). I still like her nevertheless and like Alex she has two movies releasing quite close to each other which is called Sucker Punch (Nuffnang is holding a contest for the movie too!! YEAY!!)

Anyhow other than blogging people about what this movie is about, Nuffnang asked us..

 If I were a Beast given ONE chance to prove that I am worthy to be human again, I would...

My answer was

"say that I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I hurt you, I’m sorry that I lied to you, I’m sorry that I betrayed your trust. I only wish that you would be happy again as you did before. I’m sorry.."

I guess when you hurt a person that is dear to you, you are a beast, which makes me a beast. When a friendship is ruin because of lust it makes me a beast, but at the same time its not all about lust. So I lost a friend while gaining a new one. However it does not make it right so I do apologize for my mistakes and all I hope is that you will be happier now and in the future.....

Bitter Lemon

Bitter lemon, its a type of carbonated beverage with quininie and bitter lemon flavour. It was said to aid cramps, but I think they used it more to make alcoholic drinks. I actually love these different carbonated drinks. I will always get ginger ale if its available, even bitter lemon is nice now. It used to be a mystery for me when I seen these on the shelf at the supermarket. Not anymore...

Speaking of bitter, I have been feeling extermely bitter all week. Seriously, even more bitter than the skin of lemons. I just can't shake this feeling off. Maybe its the lack sleep or too much sleep or not enough sunlight. I think I just think too much or something.

Its like a screw loose in my head or something. Oh please.. let this bitterness go away..

Its almost over

Prof just approved my final draft. I am just a proof reading away from printing it and making 5 copies of it to send it to the faculty. Soon, it will be read and reviewed before I do my presentation. I can't believe its almost over. Wait..dammit, I do believe its going to be over. Among other things in life. So many things, some things I thought I never did, but I did. Each comes with its own consequences.. but I am prepared for it..

*I don't plan to stop anytime soon, I will keep going till I decide to stop..
