[Charmed Again]
17/07/08 20:39
I am...

feeling: Good :D
watching: Charmed!

Ahhh it's been altogether too long since I watched a tv series! And today a friend of mine gave me a link to watch a load of tv shows online and I rediscovered my past love, Charmed <3

Surely everyone's heard of the three witches, right? ^_^ I'm rewatching season one. Gna rewatch the whole series eventually :) I love it! I used to watch it on Channel 4/5 (can't remember which) but then it stopped showing/showed reruns and then something came up and I couldn't watch it so I ended up missing loaaads after season four or something. When I tried to watch another ep, it was so far into the plot I couldn't keep up at all so ended up giving up watching it.

Now that I've found it again though I'm loving it again <3 Tho I can feel it's gna take up all my time! Oh well~ I haven't found a job yet anyways :( Funnily enough, the page that I found it on redirects me to a Chinese site to watch it haha, so I'm watching with Chinese subtitles. Thank goodness I understand all the Chinese so can navigate the pages easily, otherwise I really wouldn't have been able to find the eps since there are so many broken links on the site!

Oh, I also intend on launching a new website too, but I haven't worked on it yet. Grrr >_<;; I'm so disorganised. No wonder nowhere'll hire me ;_;

Apart from that, I've given away an invite today and am in the process of giving out another one, so as soon as they both make their first post I would love to introduce them to you--go say hi! XD

Okay, back to watching more Charmed ^_^

L8r,

[Final Music Exam]
16/07/08 22:54
I am...

feeling: Dunno =3
watching: YouTube

Hullo everyone! :D Had my DipABRSM music exam today. For those who are unfamiliar with it, it's... well, basically the next level above grade 8 (highest grade in music, after that it goes Diploma [what I did today], LiscenceE [or something], Fellowship)... so it's erm, pretty high tbh ^^;;

That's why I've been pretty inactive for ages--been practising my arse off, basically :( But thing is, I have this problem where I can play fiiine, but then if you ask me to play the pieces again a short while later, nerves will get the better of me and I will mess up.

Which is basically what happened in my exam today; I had an hrs practise time before it began, where I played *fine*, then in the exam, everything just... fell apart.

My music teacher was in there with me as my page turner. Seriously, he was worried for me. We don't know if I passed; I will just have my fingers crossed, but lets just say, I wanted to cry in my exam... Sigh.

But now that that's over, I can concentrate on finding a job, yay! :D

I'm really glad it's finally over though. Been working towards it for so long, I'm just sooo happy that I've finally done it. Pass or fail, it's over and done with now... Gosh, such a load off my chest! ^_^

So I went to watch my school's production of High School Musical tonight; really was crap the first half. The number of off-key notes were unbearable I had to actually subtly cover my ears at one point... And we couldn't hear half of what the cast said, 'Gabriella' had a severe attitude problem and it was just generally dead. Seriously the cast were so... well, it was like someone had grabbed a big vacuum and sucked out all their energy.

I was expecting a lively performance >_>;;

But yeah, that being said, I really enjoyed the second half :) People finally managed to sing erm... a bit better, but even if we still couldn't hear what most the cast were saying, they were a lot livelier, which just automatically made the play much better ^_^

Bedtime now, goodnight all :)

[A Poem by a Silent, Silent Chinese]
26/06/08 17:58
I am...

feeling: Contemplative
listening to: Love In The Ice (Live at Soul Power, Tokyo Summit '07) - Tohoshinki

Dilated said to read AmbyrJayde's entry and give feedback... As soon as I read it, I was reminded of this poem.

It's very similar in the message behind it, but to be honest, this poem strikes me way more than mere racism. Racism is something you can't get rid of, anywhere, but some of the things mentioned in this poem have affected a nation far greater than just a few racist remarks.

Some of them are just so harsh... some of the things that the Chinese have had to go through are things nobody should have to face. Nobody.

"What do you want from Us?"
- by a Slient, Silent Chinese.

When we were called the Sick Man of Asia, we were the Yellow Peril.
When we are billed to be the next Superpower, we are a threat.

When we closed our doors, you smuggled drugs to our markets.
When we embraced Free Trade, you blame us for taking away your jobs.

When we were falling apart, you marched in your troops and wanted your “fair share”.
When we were putting the broken pieces together again, “Free Tibet” you scream, “it was an invasion!”

So, we tried communism, you hated us for being communists.
When we embraced capitalism, you hate us for being capitalists.

When we have a billion people, you said we were destroying the planet.
When we tried limiting our numbers, you said it is human rights abuse.

When we were poor, you thought we were dogs.
When we loan you cash, you blame us for your debts.

When we build our industries, you called us polluters.
When we sell you goods, you blame us for global warming.

When we buy oil, you call that exploitation and genocide.
When you fight for oil, you call that liberation and democracy.

When we were lost in chaos and rampage, you wanted rule of law for us.
When we uphold law and order against violence, you call that violating human rights.

When we were silent, you said you want us to have free speech.
When we were silent no more, you say we are brainwashed racists.

Why do you hate us so much? We asked.
“No,” you answered, “We don’t hate You.”

We don’t hate you either,
But do you understand us?

“Of course we do,” You said,
“We have NBC, CNN and BBCs…”

What do you really want from us?
Think hard first, then answer…

Because you only get so many chances,
Enough is enough, enough Hypocrisy for this one world.

We want one world, one dream, and peace on Earth.
This big blue Earth is big enough for all of Us.

This poem was written during all the free-Tibet and boycott-China-Olympics commotion. I will not boycott. I will watch it on my tv screen and follow every single minute of it as I am unable to be present personally, something which disappoints me greatly, but I will give my wholehearted support to China and wish them every success.

Those who scream for a free Tibet and an Olympic boycott... Whatever. My opinion of you is now very low. Learn some facts about the place before you start making ignorant claims.

Anyways, onto other news, I need a job. Started applying already. Hopefully I'll get a job :)

I'm gna miss someone greatly. Let's call him L. L just called me... He's finally arrived in Taiwan. I won't be able to see him for 2 and a half months ;_; Sigh...

Oh, and today, I found out my friend's bf cheated on her so she's broken up with him. She's really upset over it... Ugh that btard. Seriously, when I get my hands on him, I'm gna--ehhem, okay, nevermind, I'll keep this post PG-13 =] But yeah... Ugh. What an arse!!! >_<;; I'm taking her out for a pudding tomorrow though. Hopefully that'll cheer her up some :)

L8r,

...as to why my profile photo before suddenly decided to stop resizing itself... o_o;; It became huge and basically stretched my layout as well -_-;; I don't get why. Oh well I've changed it to a new one now and it's resized quite nicely :)

Now, I applied for payperpost a while ago to accept my blog. I got an email back the first time saying they couldn't accept it because I didn't have a proper archives page (hence I went on about and wrote out an archives page after seeing Kirei and Kkama67's) but since I've updated the info with an archives page and submitted the blog again they haven't gotten back to me at all...

I think it's been almost a week now? I got an email back from them the very next day after I applied the first time! ¬_¬;; Hm, I wonder if they are ever going to accept it or if I should just cancel it altogether? I will ask Kirei how long it took for them to get back to her :)

Another thing, I've put forward the suggestion of an archives page on the forum, but I honestly wonder if people still check it? The forum seems quite dead, pardon me for saying @[email protected];;

Well, I guess NuTang did go through periods of downtime which probably irritated quite a few and maybe put them off? =/ I still love this place though :)

I think I might collect my money from NuTang soon as well--finally finished setting up my paypal account so yay! ^_^

[It Really Sucks...]
15/06/08 19:21
I am...

feeling: Happy
watching: Nothing

...That I have nothing worthwhile to say... Bleh, isn't that new? Heh... And I can't really be bothered to blog about things I've missed in the past now tbh :(

So... I guess I'll ramble a bit... I'm good at that x]

Oh! I bought a pair of leggings today!!! :D I've been meaning to for a long time but couldnt find any :( So I was looking around New Look the other day and lo and behold! I found some! Well, I found some very thick, opaque-materialed tights and thought they could pass off for leggings, but because I was in a rush I said to myself I'd come back another day.

So since we always turn up to church an hour early cos my sis has Chinese school at church beforehand, I usually use that time to do a little wandering. So today, I wandered back into New Look to the tights and realised, no, they can't pass for leggings... sigh.

BUT, when I looked around, I saw a pair of leggings on one of those fake model thingys! So I asked around to see if there were any... wooo!!! Found some!!! They were only £5 too! And can I just say, I absolutely love them ^_^

At the same time, I also picked up this gorgeous summer dress, which I was dead tempted to buy, but it was £25 and I only had about £20 on me altogether, AND they were strapless... I have yet to buy a strapless bra >_>;;

Therefore, I didn't buy them today, but honestly, I might have to go back to New Look to get them. Who would have thought New Look had some really nice clothes that suited me, eh? x] Usually I look awful in anything New Look ._.;;

Oh, it's also father's day! ^_^ So I cooked dinner :) Well, with help from daddy, of course. Obviously I could have made something on my own, but considering our fridge is absolutely EMPTY, (I'm not joking. There is a jar of raspberry jam and an iceberg lettuce in there and I think that's about it?) my mum took out some ribs from the freezer, expecting me to cook them.

Well, I've now learnt how to make some ribs :)

Something I've recently been playing and enjoying a lot lately as well is Stepmania! :D If you want, you can download it from there and download some song packs and play! It's so fun! ^_^ I'm only really interested in it cos some of my friends are amazing at it =O I'm getting better! x]

Oh! And has anyone seen "Cinderella: A Twist in Time"? I watched it with my sister the other day (it was her 4th time watching? She just rewatched it downstairs AGAIN as well--she's really obsessed with it =3)... I love it! It really is great ^_^

It's basically a twist in the Cinderella plot... What if the stepsisters and stepmother got their hands on the Fairy Godmother's wand, turned back time and Anastasia was the one that fit the slipper...? What would happen then? =O

Quite amusing ;)

Oh! And if anyone watches Heroes, the cheerleader sings the credits song for the movie... Her voice is surprisingly wonderful! =D

Hm, I haven't mentioned the archives page to dave yet, or put it in the suggestions page... I think I'll go do that now :)

Okay... well, I've rambled some! x] I'll leave it at that :)

...I think I'll make another layout! XD

I've already started on one, but not finished it... and it's not for NuTang, so I was thinking of making another layout for NuTang, what'd you think? ^_^

Also, I'm going to purchase a domain... The one I really wanted was Unforgettable.Net, but it's already taken! TT_TT Does anyone else have any good ideas for domain names? =3

By the way, I've finished my archives page now! :) Took a while, but finally got it done. I think I'll still make the suggestion for an integrated archives page on NuTang though...? =3 Although I don't know if dave even looks at that page anymore so I might have to contact him directly =3 Not many people got back to me in my last entry...

Speaking of which, haven't I been good with updates? ;)

And I just noticed... it's Friday the 13th! ...Be careful, all you superstitious people... Avoid some black cats today, eh? ;)
