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

RIP Brittany Murphy
10/11/1977 - 20/10/2009

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!

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.
