In line with my graduation (from secondary school life), I have decided to start afresh.
(no, i haven’t done any heinous crimes.)
So here will be my newest blog address:
See you there!
P.S. This blog will disappear from the face of this planet in approximately… 2 weeks.
I will be shifting to a new site shortly after I have straightened it out.
Keep a watch out for it!
In other words, this blog will be dead.
I must admit that I am dying to share this video with the world.
No, it is not about me.
However, it was a really amusing congratulatory hug between Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart and Steve Carell — the greatest comedians alive.
For those who are absolutely confused as to what is going on, simply put, Steve did not win anything, and everything that was said and done was purely for entertainment sake.
Probably the most memorable moment at the Emmys.
It is a humid and bordering on stifling night today.
In approximately 5 minutes, Wednesday will be rolling around and the US election day will be in full throttle.
Oh, the night is truly mysterious.
Moments ago, I had nearly jumped out of my skin after hearing classic oriental music (you know, those haunting kinds) being echoed from an apartment (I could not figure out which).
Thus, on the topic of melancholic (possibly creepy) Chinese tunes, they truly transport you to an era where black and white televisions and rickshaws rule.
It is definitely a sense of nostalgia you simply are not able to shake off.
Tonight, I have decided to take my mind off studies.
We do not have all the time to live in reality, so, why not make the best of it?
Maybe I can even reflect on how crazy it is that Lewis Hamilton could have coincidentally fallen to the fifth position.
Pffft. The scandals.
You have gotta love tomorrow!
The holidays are rockin’ and rollin’ as I speak. So, when boredom strikes, what is there to fill those hollowness?
Well, have no fear. From couch potatoes to active feet, I have a few boredom-busters for you! Read on.
- Simply, read! Reading takes hours, and that can help burn an entire day off. Just borrow/buy/
steala gripping novel, or any material that interests you and begin flippin’!
- Go back to basics and work on puzzles such as word search and fill-it-ins. Want numbers? Polish your Sudoku. Highly addictive. You have been warned.
- Pick up a television series. This is the perfect time as the US has premiered aplenty brand new/sequels of television series. Try long running series. It helps in killing time.
(Remember, some series last as long as 20 odd episodes in one season! Note: One hour each eppy.)
- Not a telly junkie? Fret not. Movie marathons works as well.
Tip: If you intend to watch them online, catch earlier releases. They have been uploaded from DVDs, so they tend to have clearer qualities.
- If you have an interest for music, why not play your music playlists (preferably one that contains 4503755 songs) in shuffle mode, and without peeping at it, guess the song title! (For a challenge, guess the artist too.)
You might want to play it with one or two other buddies.
- Go gaga over a celebrity. Reading about them would take days. (Select one with a long history. Hint: Madonna.) Try it!
- Volunteer! The possibilities are endless with this one. For one, the National Library hosts plenty of duties during this period. Simply sign up online, and you will be kept on your toes till school begins in the following year.
- Out with the old, in the with the new: Rearrange furniture in your very own room (or mess up someone else’s) or unearth 14th century clothing in your wardrobe and pass them on.
Now that’s, decluttering with a cause.
- Cook! Sieve out recipes on the world wide web. Not only can you discover novel meal ideas, but new takes on existing meals.
This requires some basic knowledge in kitchen safety. Disclaimer: I will not be liable for any injuries or major/minor accidents that is evolved from this suggestion.
- If you are very much bounded to your desktop, games might be the solution for you. Time travel caution: Online games may range from the DOS-days to before-fantastic-graphics-was-invented period.
Not for picky gamers.
- For female readers, you might to try reading up on home remedies. These DIY treatments for your body saves you money (forgo those which require expensive ingredients like avocado), and snips off time.
Tip: Work on what you have in the pantry, so you won’t have to spend on anything extra.
- Blog. Just remember to keep it neutral, and refrain from making discriminating remarks. Also, keep personal information about yourself, to yourself.
Beware: Although you might think that your blog does not receive much attention, it will always be in public eye. That means, anything you post is read. Even if it is only one reader.
- Have your friends to each contribute a board game, and spend a whole day playing them! Computer games might be the rage now, but board games promote social bonding.
It is a great way to spend time together with pals as well as a fantastic ice breaker for new friends who have joined your circle of friends.
As you would have realised, none of these activities require a cent from your bank.
Who said time is money?

Womanizer (Director’s Cut) by Britney Spears
You have got to admit one thing.
This song sounds generic ever since Britney’s comeback of Blackout.
First of all, the beginning was the likes of Gimme More.
Secondly, the obvious I-can-live-without-KFed surfaces barely two seconds into the video.
Lastly, the “ah-ah” segments of the tune are far too repetitive.
Britney is simply trying too hard to get her groove back.
For one, the naked Britney scene in the sauna was uncalled for.
What she really needs is Justin Timberlake’s help.
P.S. This music video is reminiscent of Toxic, much?
