Surprisingly, I can't sleep well this morning because I was coughing all for several hours before hynoptising myself to sleep. Hopefully, I will be able to sleep in peace tonight. And damn, I think I threw away my cough mixture, my natural sleeping dose.

So did you guys dream about Tokyo Crepes this morning?

Tabetai!
Saturday, October 4, 2008
Tabetai! (I want to eat in Japanese) All of a sudden I remembered the crepes made in a talkshow in Japan where a crepe restaurant manager taught Krystal Kay in Hey!x3. Looking at that crepe makes me feeling hungry. The crepe just looks yummy! And I'm just curious why is cheesecake included into the crepe??!! I have never eaten like that before but now I feel like tasting it!

I have the recipe to make crepes. I will try making it some day when I have flour that is. But I don't have cream and .... some other ingredients... But making crepes is on my list! Oh right. Apple cinammon is also yum. It's my favourite back in Wellington, NZ.

At the mean time, please enjoy drooling.

Scream, bitch!
Friday, October 3, 2008
I watched 3 scary thriller or horror films, you preferred, consecutively until 2 am. The first movie I watched called Chermin, which is a Malay horror film that incorporated with local superantural elements and the ghost scenes were quite gory. The second movie was the Hitcher; dumb dumb movie but I pitied the killer because that actor has never ever gotten a good role except in Lord of the Rings and even he has a role as a good guy, he will surely be dead before the movie ends or in the middle. The third movie is called the Woods, which is about .... witchcraft? I didn't see the beginning but its midway is interesting enough for me to watch til the end. It's not really scary but watching it after 12 am just made the atmosphere spooky.

I could not really go to bed initially after my brain kept on playing tricks on me like there's going to be someone sitting on your stomach ... or there's someone standing beside you and the like. I got a little frightened by own imaginations but after recalling my experience of being able to see those spirits... I just tell myself to hell with them since I can't really be bothered to be disturbed or not. I just want a good night sleep! And I did!

Anyway ... people, please upload a picture at http://www.canongoesgreen.com/ so 2500 trees could be planted. Thank you!
