100 Things to Watch in 2010

This is from the list of 100 Things to Watch in 2010. Here's a few things that caught my eye:

1. 3D at Home
- All I can say is awesome.

11. Brighter Colours - I've seen too much black, white, beige. Can't wait to have some funky colours into my wardrobe.

35. Gaming Software - More handhelds/apps, less consoles. This will be interesting.

60. Mobile Money - People will be able to send money via their mobile phones as quickly as they would a text msg. This is going too far, dontcha think?

61. Mobile Ticketing - Flashing mobile phones at airports and event venues will replace paper tickets. Aw, but I really like saving the paper tickets.

73. Public Bicycles - Is this cool or what? I would totally use these since I don't have a bike lol.

78. Silent Dance Parties - Dancing to the beat via headphones. This seems ridiculous but I guess it prevents noise pollution/angry neighbours and no one will fight over the song choice.

80. Slow Beverages - Anti-energy drinks which promotes calming and boosts concentration. I dislike all energy drinks so this might be good.

99. Wonder Girls - Surprised much? Although I'm not that into them. If only it was Big Bang or something lol.


Watched Avatar in 3D yesterday.
I was never planning to watch it but then everyone was saying it was really GOOD.
And they were right, it was awesome.
It just takes you to a new world and it's so epic!
Although, I wouldn't watch it twice.
It's just not one of movies where you can watch again and again.

But I find it interesting that the director, James Cameron, started writing the script 15 years ago:

"Avatar had been in development since 1994 by Cameron, who wrote a 114-page scriptment for the film. Filming was supposed to take place after the completion of Titanic, and the film would have been released in 1999, but according to Cameron, "technology needed to catch up" with his vision of the film. In early 2006, Cameron developed the script, the language, and the culture of Pandora. He has stated that if Avatar is successful, two sequels to the film are planned."

Yay, parts 2 and 3!

Anyways, I'm never going to go to Hoyts Cinema ever again. The line up was so long and we missed the previews! I know, previews are nothing, but this is 3D. The large popcorn & coke combo is so expensive too. $15 compared to Greater Union's $10. And they only have 2 categories - Child & Adult, whereas Greater Union has Child, Student & Adult. And I'm not classified as an adult yet. So basically, I paid $4.50 extra and I spent $55 in total since I bought Adam's ticket and a combo.

Never again.


I didn't do much for Christmas. Just had a small party on Christmas Eve at a friend's place with a few people.

Ate chicken nuggets and jumbo-sized dimsims, made tacos and munched on cherries, rambutans and pineapple pieces. Watched 'Major Payne' and 'Not Another Teen Movie' - I know, what Christmas movies.

Only the guys drank but the only drinks available were jรคgerbombs and the recommended intake for any energy drink is one can a day so obviously, they all felt really sick after a while from drinking too much.

Anyway, while we were all watching the movies, everyone was spread out around the room with their 'other half'. 4 couples. I found this really funny, I dunno why.

The time flew by pretty quickly and it reached Christmas Day. Then finally 5 AM. Some of them decided to sleep over, and the hostess even laid out 6 piles of pjs and toothbrushes for each person. Her boyfriend kept calling them 'constellation prizes' -_-".

But Adam felt pretty bad from the drinks so we decided to walk home. Konked out immediately then woke up at 6 PM. Still Christmas Day.

Unfortunately, we didn't take any photos. Guess we forgot lol.

Didn't get to spend Christmas with family but I guess there's always next year. I gave my dad and step-mom their presents yesterday though. They didn't even open it in front of me! I had to leave the house right away. But my dad did give me money. Practically blew it all away the same day though -_-".

Now all there's left is New Years Eve! Probably gonna spend it at the beach or watching the fireworks in the city. Can't wait :D.

Christmas shopping

Christmas shopping was the worst experience ever last night.

Got to Parramatta at 9.30 PM with Adam, packed as, obviously.
I really hate walking in crowds. This tells me I should've went Christmas shopping before.
I already knew what to buy so I went to Myer department store.
Went to the area where they sold electrical appliances.
Found my present for my dad, which was a neck and shoulder massager.
The box was all screwed and it was the last one so I just took it.
Tried looking for the foot spa for my step mom and Adam's mom.
The store assistants told me they were sold out but they did have one on display but it may be dusty.
It wasn't just dusty. It was old and crusty looking.
I told them no thanks so they told me to try this other store.
Bought my dad's present, went to the other store.
They did have a foot spa but it was $100?! The one I wanted was only $40.
Obviously didn't get it. Saw my dad's present, all newly boxed. Annoyed.
We wanted to go to Big W to see if they had it and Adam wanted an air canister for his tower.
Found out Parramatta didn't have Big W. How is that possible?!
Went into Target, searched for the foot spa everywhere.
Asked a store assistant, said it was near 'cosmetics'.
Wasn't there at all.
Contemplated about getting my step-mom a hair curler.
I know, a 36 y/o woman curling their hair? Unlikely.
Went into David Jones, didn't see the foot spa.
Did see a mini foot massager. $50.
Told Adam I was just gonna get a present for my step-mom and not for his mom.
I could tell Adam was disappointed.
But I'm not loaded ya know.
Purchased the thing, found out it was only $30.
Decided I was gonna buy it for his mom too.
Took the last one.
Didn't want to look like an idiot for buying something again so we went to find another cash register.

Finally finished and went to eat.
I ate chicken teriyaki udon soup, he ate prawn and dumpling noodle soup.
Best moment of the day.
It was almost 12, closing time, so we headed to the station.
Arrived at Granville.
A train was just arriving on the platform we were suppose to be on, so Adam ran for it first, not checking the schedule.
Found out we were going BACK to Parramatta.
Ended up in Parramatta station again, found out we had to wait 1 hour for a train.
Finally came, arrived at Granville.
No more trains after 12 so had to take a Night Ride bus.
Waited another hour for it to come.
Cockroach crawled on me.
Bus came, they said it didn't go to Cabramatta, but stopped at Fairfield.
Took the bus anyway, knowing we had to walk for an hour to get home.
Arrived at Fairfield and found out we could take a Night Ride bus to Cabramatta.
Jumped on that and arrived at Cabra.
Walked to Adam's house and a group of tb's were in front of us, knocking and running on doors.
Adam said it looked like fun.
I told him to join them.
Finally arrived at his house.
It never felt so good to be home.

The morals of the story are:
Don't go Christmas shopping last minute, check your train schedules, don't always rely on your significant other and never sit near bushes.

Anyways, here's what I got them!

Red is for Adam's mom, the purple is for my step mom

My dad's present

All wrapped! I don't care much for ribbons and bows though lol.

I didn't even get them a card -_-".
Probably have to go out today and get them.

I'm pooped now.
Christmas shopping is so much work.
And I only did it for 3 people.

Andddd I still have to get my Secret Santa something.
Gonna order it online.
Sigh, money money money!
Spending all of it on Christmas shopping and going out so much.
Too many people's birthdays are around these months.

Okay, too much talking.
It's 7 in the morning and I haven't slept yet.

Hope you have all a very Merry Christmas tomorrow!

As some of you may not know, fashion is one of my favourite things. All I do on the computer most of the time is browse and save pictures. But I have a love/hate relationship with it.

I love it because it gives me great and endless inspiration. I am just in complete awe when I see someone wear something so creative and beautiful. It makes me want go out and wear the exact same thing. And when I see editorals, I'm so amazed by the shots.

But at times, I hate it because I get so jealous of people who can piece together something so wonderful. It makes me think, 'why can't I be creative enough to do something like this?'. It makes me want to 'kick' fashion out of the way and not give a shit about it. When it gets to this point, that's when I stop and do something else.

But I guess that's what hobbies do to you? Make you feel happy but jealous at the same time? But who wants to feel jealous? I hate jealousy.

I dunno. I don't have that with reading.

On Sunday, woke up at 8 in the morning and took an hour and a half drive down to Stuart Park at Wollongong to celebrate my friend's 18th.

It was 23 degrees that day, but that didn't stop us from going into the water :D

The bay next to the beach

Birthday boy on the left

Our base

Playing poker on a mahjong table

Guys playing Yugioh

Had to wait an hour for a vacant grill -
sausages, chicken wings and steak.. mmm

Being the Asians we are, we decided to eat at the grill


Fun day spent with good people and nice food.

Many lives have been gone too soon this year.
Too many.
It makes me incredibly sad, but that's the cycle of life.
It's our turn eventually.
And even when you are prepared for it, you still can't help but feel shocked.
It just makes us appreciate life even more.
Like the sayings, 'live your life to the fullest' and 'live each day as if it were your last'.
As cliche they may sound, they're so true.
So be sure to make 2010 and even all the years after that, your best years.

RIP Brittany Murphy

Waking up to the news shocked me pretty hard.
I really liked her in Clueless and Just Married.
Another life gone too soon.

‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ by Stephen Chboksy

The only book I've read that I can truly, truly relate to, it's scary.

Saturday, December 19, 2009


Yesterday night, went out to eat at Sicilian restaurant in Parramatta to celebrate my two friend's 18th birthdays.

Birthday boy & girl

Karaoke time!

Tobacco Kingdom, oh yeah!

All in all, it was a good night :D.

Music player

My apologies if my music player is a distraction.
In order to comply with Youtube, Mixpod has to show the full video in order to stream the audio.
You can upload MP3 versions yourself, but you know me.
I'm too lazy.

There's one other skin that allows you to have audio only, but it's way too big for that tiny space.

'Til next time.

Blue frogs

Got my contact lenses case in the mail the other day.

They're so cute!
Only $6 including P&H.

I'm planning to buy some coloured contacts soon.

From the Geo Angels series preferrably.

I'm gonna get the grey or blue ones.
But I have to visit my optometrist to ask them for my exact prescription.
I know, silly me for not knowing.
Well, silly them for not telling me! D:

Yayyy! Holidays have finally arrived!

Woke up at 3 PM today then trekked to Stocklands later in the evening.
Yes, I'm enjoying my holidays already.
I don't usually post up pictures of my purchases, 'cause I dunno...
It's uninteresting and it seems like a way to show off.
But I don't give a hoot toots right now so away we go :D.

Mink dress - $45

CG LashBlast waterproof mascara - $12 (used a $5 off coupon :D)
Srsly, the best mascara I've ever tried.

Exfoliating gloves - $5
One for my boyfriend :D

Rings from Equip - $10
There's something about rings I just absolutely love.

I should seriously wait for Boxing Day sales, but I couldn't resist.
Musn't spend anymore money 'til next year!

Monday, December 7, 2009


Hello again.

As the due dates of my assessments are coming closer, I realise that I am able to get through this and that I was stressing over nothing.

It's just a matter of determination and great will-power.

Anyway, I'll make sure you won't have to read anymore posts that are about my stress of school and my pitiful outbreaks.

Until maybe, the HSC exams are near :P.

Thursday, December 3, 2009

No more foolin' around. No more complaining.
Gotsta get down to business!

Quadratic functions and geometrical applications of calculus:
Please be nice tmrw.

School reports

I got my Year 11 report during school today.
It was OK, not too great but not too horrible.
Rankings are more important than the actual % right?
So to make things short:

English Advanced: 12/107
English Extension: 1/4
Mathematics: 32/107
Mathemetics Extension: 22/36
Economics: 4/24
Ancient History: 24/93
Society & Culture: 1/10

I could have done better, especially with maths 2U & 3U.
That's just ridiculous.
I didn't do so well in my yearly exams for english advanced and extension, so I'm quite pleased.
But overall, I'm pretty satisfied with the results.

I was planning to drop extension maths today because I have an exam this Monday that I clearly have not studied for at all but my teacher was so desperate to keep me.
"Just stay, sit for the test, write your name, don't have to do anything, drop later".
It's because he's afraid the class will collapse due to the small number of students and everyone will be transferred to the other extension maths class and he doesn't want that.

So I dunno.
I'm so lost?!
I want to drop it and not sit for the exam because it's doing my head in so badly.
I don't want to study for something I'm not giving 100% in.
And I have other exams/assessments to worry about.

I have done jack shit, seriously.
I really don't want to put up with this stress.
I want to drop out of school altogether and be free~
But of course, I can't.
And no one will let me.

I just want it to be over, quickly and painlessly.
That's all I ask.

I absolutely love everything about this photo.
The girl, pose, the setting, the makeup, the corset, the mask.
But, I would never be caught wearing it.

I only found out about her today. She's quite pretty.
It's unfortunate that she was only 20 and imagine the life she could've had.
Makes you think that the fashion industry isn't everything.

A typical day at the boyfriend's house

Adam and I are watching one of those TV programs that document about the progress of a police department on a case...

TV: ".... they find out that three masked men went to the suspect's house."
Adam: "Hey, isn't that a song?"
Me: "What?"
Adam: *starts singing in a sing-song voice* "Three masked men, three masked men..."
Me: "What the hell, that's 'Three Blind Mice!" *stares in bewilderment*
Adam: "Oh, is it?"

Oh, he's so funny ♥.

Year 12

Year 12 is the biggest bitch.

As people reached this god-for-saken grade, all I heard was complaints about how much year 12 sucks and that they wanted out.
And I would just think they were over reacting.
But it's so goddamn true.
It totally kills my life.
It's only been 4 weeks and it's already killing me.
There's so much to do but so little time to do it in.

I have an in-class essay for English about belonging and choosing texts that relate to my prescribed text is :@.
My prescribed text is Emily Dickinson's poems.
Do you know what she was like?!
All she did was sit in her room all day, writing poems about how she was too scared to fit in and all she did was mope about it.
All I can say is grow a pair.

I need to decide on a topic for my Personal Interest Project for Society and Culture rather quickly because we have to do a speech on our introduction in 3 weeks time.
I have abso-fucking-lutely no idea what to do.
No drugs, sex, depression, death, emo-culture related topics either.

I also need to choose a topic for my major project for Extension History.
I don't know :(.
I may drop the subject if need be.

But any ideas will be greatly, and I MEAN, greatly appreciated :).

I have to say though, that I have a slight advantage since all my friends are high school graduates now, so I can always go to them for help.
But still, I don't know how they were able to cope with all this.
It's too much to handle.
But I know it will be all over and done with in a blink of an eye, and I'd be wondering what I was so stressed about...

Wedding Dress

Taeyang - Wedding Dress

When I first listened to this song, I thought it was pretty boring.
But I think it's grown on me now.

But seriously, how can someone be so hot?!
It's not possible.

Sailor Moon

As a child, I absolutely loved Sailor Moon.
I'd come home after school and watch it everyday.
I even had the movies on video tapes.
My favourite character was Sailor Mercury because she was blue (my favourite colour at the time) and she was the brains of the bunch.
But I never realised how ecchi it was until now.
It contains a lot of sexual content but it's very vague.
For example:

Their skirts - they are short as fuck.
I can tell they rolled them up, hence the outward angle of the skirt LOL.
Trust me, I'd know - a lot of lil girls do that in school and it's so obvious.

I always knew there was something strange about Sailor Mars...

One of the most common feature of ecchi anime is underwear.

The lesbian couple - but they never wanted to admit it.

I don't know what they were thinking, but I'm sure many young girls admired Sailor Moon as well.
My childhood was based on lies D:
Tragic, I know.

Feeling quite sad at the moment.
My tumblarity on tumblr went down from 225 to 94.
Probably 'cause I kept reblogging from the same tumblr.
Didn't even know that could happen.
And I have to stay after school tomorrow for my first lesson of extension history.
I regret choosing it.
And I need to choose a topic for my society and culture personal interest project (PIP) pretty quickly.
Fuck I hate this.
I was going to say FML but stopped.
There are people out there who are experiencing more unfortunate things than someone who dropped their phone in the toilet or had their tumblarity plummet.
And here we are, throwing the words around like it's nothing.
Where's the justice in this world?!
Okay, I should stop now.

Sunday, November 8, 2009


I didn't even end up doing anything on my to-do list 'cept 6. Gees.
When I was buying the scrapbook, I was contemplating between Dora the Explorer, Bart Simpson and a lizard one.
Dora the Explorer was too teeny bopper, Bart Simpson looked gay, so I took the lizard.
The ugliest one.
But at least it has a section on the cover where it states, 'This belongs to __________'.
That's cool.

Anyway, my friend (hey look, I didn't mention his name) is celebrating his birthday tomorrow, but unfortunately I can't go because of school.
Most of them just finished their HSC, so they're free. Free from high school!
I, on the other hand, is still going through the last year.
And it seems like they're gonna be having so much funnn!
Fishing, swimming and bbq.
Aw, sucks to be me.

My boyfriend cut his hair, mohawk style.
Yeah, he thinks he looks cool but he won't admit it.
I wanted to take a picture but he didn't let me.
I'll take a sneak shot when he's playing games, heh.

Anyway, later taters.

Sometimes I forget how good rock songs are.
Makes me have chills. The good ones.
Brings me back to the old days...


Wednesday 4, November -
Happy birthday, T.O.P!

Hello! Ahaha.
I crack myself up.

Very productive day

Well, today was very exhausting.

Went late night at Parramatta to help my friends - Chloe, Teresa, Jenny and later Vicky -pick out their dresses for their year 12 formal (you know, I think this is the first time I actually mentioned my friends names in my blog besides my boyfriend's and the birthday shout outs. Weird huh?).
It was an utter failure because it was so hard to find a decent dress they liked.
One wanted a flowy, bright-coloured dress and the other wanted an innocent-looking, white dress with thick straps.
They couldn't be that hard to find could they?!
But they were.
And obviously, you can't buy the shoes and accessories without buying the dress first.
That's just the rule.
So we ended up buying food and more food.
And we got free mini boxes of cereal! I love free stuff, even if it's not useful.
I saw many nice, wonderful things I wanted to buy, but I forced myself not to look at them.
There were sales too :(.
But I must save up money. Very important.

For the first time in my life, I actually sat down on a chair during a shopping trip.
Me? Sophie Phan? Sitting down? During shopping?
That's outrageous!
But my feet were hurting, I only had an hour of sleep, school was wearisome and the girls gave up.
So my tired legs found the nearest chair in Myers and sat down next to Chloe who was Facebooking away - I gave up pestering her to get off her lazy ass and look for a goddamn dress.

Sooo, Chloe and I will go on a mission to find her perfect dress again, but this time at the city.
I told her no complaining this time otherwise I'll make her wear a potato sack to the formal.

Cannot wait for tomorrow.
It is Friday - or should I say, TGIFT -
Thank God It's Friday Tomorrow.
No? Aw.

I really need some motivation for this year.
I was really pumped in the holidays, but I'm sick of it now.
Homework is just piling up on my desk slowly, gradually.
Arghhh, what do I do?!
I don't want to be a lazy blob who leaves everything 'til the last minute.
I really need some change.
I was good before, but when year 11 hit, I just became really, super, ultra, mega lazy.
I need to reorganise my priorities.
Set some new year resolutions for 2010! - I know, it's not 2010 yet, but this is very important!

So here goes:

1. Eat breakfast every morning whenever I can.
2. Have a notebook ready for English - my teacher gives away A LOT of good points.
3. Listen in class and actually do work.
4. If I'm unsure of something, ask the teacher, not the person next to me.
5. Right after school, eat then do some HOMEWORK!
6. Cannot touch the TV or computer until I finish every single piece of homework.
7. Start assessments early, preferably the same day I received it.
8. Write study notes RIGHT NOW so I won't have to cram right before the HSC.
9. Revise everything new I've learnt everyday.
10. Minimize the amount of times I go out a week.
11. Lights out before 2AM!
12. Prioritise Facebook games last - being the highest level in Cafe World on my friend's list does not help me in obtaining a high ATAR.
13. Spend money wisely. Only buy things I really need and will actually benefit me.
14. No more taxi rides! Please!
15. Exercise regularly - push ups, sit ups, jogging anything.
16. Eat healthy! - More vegetables and fruits, less chips and candy.

That's all I can think of right now.
I think I'll start this next week... or maybe the week after...


Yes, so I decided to make a tumblr.
It's really easy and quick to use and it's very simple.
So check it out if ya want ;D.
I don't post things on there I would post here.
It's normally just pictures and/or quotes that I like and find inspiring.
All my rants and daily doings go on blogger.
Speaking of blogger... I should really update this huh?!

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

When you try and don't succeed, what do you do?
Do you try again or do you give up?
It's a tough call isn't it?
I dunno...
I put my heart and soul into this but I ended up failing.
So I try again, hoping that I can do it.
It doesn't happen. But I still pick myself up and try again.
It's a continuous cycle... try, fail, try, fail, try, fail...
And yet, I still end up falling.

I don't know if I can try anymore.
I mean, how do I know when to stop hoping?
It feels like I have nothing left to give.
I don't know what to do.
I feel disheartened and really disappointed.
I feel stupid.

I just don't know what's going on anymore...
What the hell's happening?

The Lovely Bones

Loved this book.

It's a deal


Hah, cute.

I'm thinking of making a tumblr.

Flame haired


I'm considering dying my hair this shade of red.
It's subtle yet it still stands out.
I like that.

A new start

School started yesterday.
Got most of my yearly exams' results back.
Advanced English was absolutely appalling. I was shattered.
Was pretty pleased with my other subjects.
At least it doesn't count towards our HSC.
This year is what counts. I'm going to work hard.
Must manage time effectively, no more cramming, no 'cbf' business, get plenty of sleep.
I don't care what it takes, what I have to sacrifice, what I have to do -
I'm going to do it.
It's the first step in determining my life path after all.

Scary? I know.

Grace Park

So I happened to come across this actress as I was on brutalturtle's blog.

Note: nudity under the cut - okay, technically there isn't any but for those lil youngins, don't say I didn't warn you and cry to your mommies.

Grace Park from Maxim

See, it wasn't that disturbing, was it? So don't get your panties up in a knot.

Anyway, she's a pretty girl.

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

Happy chap

Got my phone back,
bought a shit load of things,
donated 2 bucks to charity,
done my dailies on fb and
getting contacts tomorrow.

Life is sweet.

Holidays! Celebrate!

Exams are over. Holidays have begun.
A week ago.
Yes, I haven't been updating this damn blog.
'Cause haven't you heard?
Exams are over! Holidays have begun!

So obviously, I've been doing amazing, exciting things during my absence.

No, I'm lying.
I've done utterly nothing.
Play mahjong, eat, laze around Adam's house, play games on Face
book, watch movies, read.
Yeah, that's abouttttt it.

But I have to say, mahjong takes you on an oh, so amazing adventure.
And I don't mean this solitaire-pyramid type one:

I'm talkin' 'bout the real shit:
Guess which one I am.

It's a game for the 'pros':

And we all know Wikipedia is always reliable.

But it really is addictive.
In fact, I played last night.

And I was declared the champion.
(Thank you, thank you)

Oh, so I watched Up last week. IN 3D!
Damn right I did!

But the annoying thing was I had to wear the 3D glasses over my normal glasses, so it kept slipping off my nose.
And it gets smudged with fingerprints so badly.
But it was worth the suffering.
'Cause it was awesome!
Seriously, if you haven't watched it yet, GO NOW!

Look at the chubby, Korean kid.
It's funny already.

I watched G-Force too. IN 3D!
It was about guinea pigs.
Does that sound amusing?
Well, it wasn't.
'Cause they were special agents.

Anyway, I wanted to get into reading again before I get busy with year 12 'cause I know I won't have any time.
I haven't read a book since last year.
That may not seem long to some, but it is to me.
And that book was Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer.
I haven't even finished it yet.
Just waiting 'til the movie comes out then I'll start reading.
'Cause I know I'll forget what the book is about and I'd like to know before I watch the movie so I can compare and criticize the movie's take on the book (I know, I'm mean).
Just like Harry Potter!
Yes, I was very disappointed with the HP movies, but you just can't blame 'em.
They have a budget to meet and no one would want to sit through a 6 hour movie. (I wouldn't mind though).

So, I bought a book the other day.
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.
I know, it's practically a crime for me not to read this worldwide bestseller novel yet.
I've watched the movie twice, and I liked it.
The story is so mindboggling. I love it.
And I have a thing for conspiracies. It's just so interesting.
And this story is full of it.
But as I'm reading it, I'm getting confused with the sequence of events and the information between the movie and the book.
They changed the book cover too.
I prefer the original one, but at least we can see what the "cryptex" and Louvre Pyramid looks like.

Books are quite expensive though - $20+.
But I'd rather own it than borrow from the library.
I don't know what to read next.
There's so many great books out there, I don't know where to start.
Do you guys have any recommendations?
I'm open to all genres, 'cept maybe sci-fi and horror, lol.

Anyway, there is only one more week left 'til I'm faced with pressure and all the other ugly things.
I'm talking about year 12.
This is practically my last holiday as all the remaining holidays in year 12 will be filled with studying.
And that's no holiday to me.
So I should make use of it while I can.
Yes, the shops are calling out to me.
