Out of ideas of what to cook for dinner? Dining alone? Salad makes an awesome, simple meal for one, or side dish for two or more!

Today, I went shopping at the 'quite' newly opened Giant at my hometown.

...and he asked if I want a tub of ice cream...when I was browsing thru them.


X3

So nice when they offer to buy these kinda junky food w/o me asking them...hee~

Its too quiet..

by Volvoxx On 2:39 PM 0 comments
I'm home....but it doesn't feel like home...why's it so quiet?

Well...mum's off to Russia (her yearly 'out of the country' vacation...sigh...so nice)...aunt's off to Penang to take care of my bro's daughter (since her baby-sitter went eye operation...swt) so its just my dad, the dog, and me at home. Well at least I have TV/aircon/good bed/car/(quite) good food/dog to chase around/good PC+internet access/etcetcetc...so yeah....I'm good.

Fifi's pawing me begging for apple... /feeds

So I would have thought dad and I are gonna go eat out every day rite? Turns out...dad's bleh to go eat outside ade....so he asked if I can cook. So yesterday after breakfast (very nice fish soup bihun...so long never had such nice breakfast ade), dad brought me to the local pasar and bought ingredients...so fun to buy things when you don't have to pay...lol!

I made fishball (with mix of those ...fishball-like things u eat in steamboat) cabbage soup, Japanese tofu+chicken and asparagus cooked with sambal belacan and prawn (first time cooking...haha!) Turned out quite well...at least dad din complain and said the asparagus were ok eventho its the first time cooking (had to call aunt up to ask her how to cook asparagus with sambal..since dad wanted it to be a lil spicy....swt)...Lucky my house quite well stocked...she had belacan, cili, shallots and dried shrimp....I just had to blend them...kekkeke...

Lunch

Dad surprised me when he bought big prawns yesterday...so again, I had to call aunt up to ask her

Me: Eh...how to cook aa...big prawns?
Aunt: Errr...how big?
Me: ...big la...like tiger prawn.
Me: ...wa...he bought aa?

Had fried prawn (with salt, soya sauce and ajinomoto...its dat simple), steamed fish (with dark&light soya sauce and fried shallot+ginger...simple but taste great) and sawi fried with oyster sauce....and yesterday's soup...hehee...Dad says its much better than when mum cooks (in my house, aunt cooks. Mum doesn't)...cuz she usually makes the real simple ones and doesn't bother with troublesome menu....so....I'll take that as a compliment :D ..haha.

Gonna make lemon chicken tmr...hope dad likes it. :D

Going Penang this Friday. Sis says there's Chilis there now....gonna belanja...yay!


On a totally different matter, Fifi's scent of smell (and...ermm...voice recognition?) has improved IMO. Came back yday and didn't even got near her cage...can already hear her jumping up and down and whimpering behind in the kitchen. Was so excited (but THANKFULLY didn't pee on me this time)...


Fifi bugging me whenever I'm on my comp

Mmmm...hope mum gets something nice for me from Russia...wonder what she got me from K.Kinabalu lately...hee~

Laters... :D

p/s: Fifi snores when she sleeps....

Very good song to 'testdrive' your speaker.

p/s: Yes, I woke up at 5.30am. I actually slept at 10. How healthy is dat?? o.O
pp/s: Now i KNOW the 'english' part of the song had different translation both in Japanese and English...but since I copy paste this song...and other sources seems to have copy pasted too....cant really do anything bout it....haha! Can't help laughing actually.





Japanese

Shizuka ni sora ni kaeru anata no sugata wo
what else can I do besides avenge you?
Namida ga kareru made zutto mitsumete ita

Afureru kanashimi wa kese nai kizuato ni
Wasure wa shinai to chikatta


Oreta tsubasa wo habatakase
Subete wo keshsite mise you
Itsu no hi ka owari wo mukaeru
Saigo no kane ga nari yamu made

you told me
live as if you were to die tomorrow
feel as if you were to be reborn now
face as if you were to live forever

Furueru yubi de akai namida wo nazotta
I had nothing to lose, nothing truth
Hakanai omoide ga yami ni ochite yuku


Saigo no hohoemi ga ukandewa kieru
Nukumori dake wo nokoshite

Yasashii dake no kotoba nara
Ima no bokuha iyase nai
Hateshi naku tsuduku tatakai ni
Kono mi wo subete sasageru dake

Itsuka wa kono sora ni daremo ga kaeru kara
Wakare no kotoba wa ira nai

make it up

Oreta tsubasa wo habatakase
Subete wo keshite mise you
Itsu no hi ka owari wo mukaeru
Saigo no kane ga nari yamu made

Yasashii dake no kotoba nara
Ima no bokuha iyase nai

Kono mi wo subete sasageru dake

REDEMPTION...REDEMPTION...

English

Your form which returns gently to heaven
What else can I do, besides avenge you?
I watched it for the longest time, until my tears dried up.

And the sorrow overflowing from the scar which can't be erased,
I swore that I would never forget it.

I'll flap my broken wings and erase it all some day, you'll see,
Until the last bell ringing the dirge completes.

You told me to live as if you were to die tomorrow.
Fail not and be what we were now
Face as if we want to have forever

Bright red tears traced by a trembling finger,
I had nothing to lose, nothing to lose
It crashes through the dark memories.

The last smile wavered, and disappears,
And the warmth is all that's left.

Your kind and gentle words can't heal me now,
This body's only dedicated to the never ending fight.

Because everyone returns to heaven, some day,
You'll never need to say goodbye.

Break out!

I'll flap my broken wings and erase it all some day, you'll see,
Until the last bell ringing the dirge completes.

Your kind and gentle words can't heal me now,
This body's only dedicated to the never ending fight.

REDEMPTION...REDEMPTION...

Secrecy and all that

by Volvoxx On May 25, 2007 6:42 PM
Sometimes...its just really funny to observe when people (plural) desperately (but needlessly) try keeping secrets from you but fails miserably at that...and it gets better when you see them trip over each other trying to cover their own asses...LOL! And for all that trouble, only to have the whole secrecy thing somewhat 'backfire' in their faces. Heh.

They really think everyone else are idiots.


Yep, VERY *coughs* mature.

Ah well....that's life for you.

of having no more papers! XD

I'm finally done with them. For this semester.

Right after the paper, I ran some errands with Kristine and Shindee, after which I slept and boy, did I slept all right. I think I slept straight for more than 15 hours. The moment I woke up I was so disorientated. I felt like I was in a life of another, having lived through a whole life in my dreams. Right after I woke up, I turned on my monitor and bugged as many people I see online and not idle that I was willing to bug. It's like I need some sort of a 'reality anchor' to hang on to while I let the unreal get washed away by the waves of time and I gather my bearings.

In anycase, I'm awake now, and believe or not, part of my brain is telling me to get back to bed. Sheesh. The other part of me fear that if I go back to my sweet warm blanket of mine, I'll be fast forwarding to another day. And that's what been keeping me awake tip-taping away on my keybaord.

Looking back at what I've wrote, I think this must be the first post of mine here that looks more of one of your more typical blog post. Heh. I guess sleeping through a whole day of your life messes up your brain a little.

So does sleeping too little or irregularly, as I've found out lately. I don't know whether or not it's the real reason or not but I've been feeling rather awful and uncomfortable physically ever since classes were over. It's like the irregularity of life's making my body more than a little f-cked up lately. I guess I'm getting old. I used to be able to take all this shit and more without so much of a flinch, but I'm getting headaches, dizziness, appetite problems, stomachache, hell, even muscle cramps and aches when I didn't even do no fricking exercise. Might have something to do with the amount of fat that I've 'accumulated' over the years, so I guess it's time to get serious and exercise more as well. (After I get a Wii, I promise myself I'll be doing more sports. Wii sports, that is.)

Might have to do with stress, I dunno. Like I said, it tend to happen only when I do things that's irregular to me. So far, there's only one good explanation to me that I can think of -

I'm getting old. T.T

A, B...C?

Something QJ got from YM message spam forwards...lol...Dont know how far it is true..nor do I know which uni this is from. Anyways...enjoy. Lesson to be learnt? ALWAYS read the instructions. LOL!


Dear (name),

Every year I attempt to boost my students' final grades by giving them this relatively simple exam consisting of 100 True/False questions from only 3 chapters of material. For the past 20 years that I have taught Intro Communications 101 at this institution I have never once seen someone score below a 65 on this exam. Consequently, your score of a zero is the first in history and ultimately brought the entire class average down a whole 8 points.

There were two possible answer choices: A (True) and B (False). You chose C for all 100 questions in an obvious attempt to get lucky with a least a quarter of the answers. It's as if you didn't look at a single question. Unfortunately, this brings your final grade in this class to failing. See you next year!

May God have mercy on your soul.

Sincerely,
Professor (name)

P.S. If all else fails, go with B from now on. B is the new C.

Took these pics during my sister's little house warming thingy the other day (6th May). Nice warm cozy house...just bought and renovated recently.

Somehow...I got distracted and didn't really take pics around the house...nor the small crowd there (except baby Minn-Yi..haha)... /swt sorry! x.x ...

Went down KL to join in the small gathering, as well as to Celebrate with QJ :3 ...well..it was a nice weekend.

君がいた夏は遠い夢の中

空に消えてった打ち上げ花火

君の髪の香りはじけた
浴衣姿がまぶしすぎて
お祭りの夜は胸が騒いだよ

はぐれそうな人ごみの中
「はなれないで」出しかけた手を
ポケットに入れて握りしめていた


君がいた夏は遠い夢の中
空に消えてった 打ち上げ花火

子供みたい金魚すくいに
夢中になって袖がぬれてる
無邪気な横顔がとても可愛くて


君は好きな綿菓子買って
ご機嫌だけど 少し向こうに
友達見つけて 離れて歩いた

君がいた夏は遠い夢の中
空に消えてった 打ち上げ花火

神社の中石段に座り
ボヤーッとした闇の中で
ざわめきが少し遠く聞こえた

線香花火マッチをつけて
いろんなこと話したけれど
好きだってことが言えなかった


君がいた夏は遠い夢の中
空に消えてった 打ち上げ花火


君がいた夏は 遠い夢の中
空に消えてった 打ち上げ花火


空に消えてった 打ち上げ花火

Need to get that ugly dude's picture off the top of the page. >.>

/bumpitybump

Anyways...!

Kristine and I went to watch Spiderman 3 last weekend at MidValley Megamall.

The moment we got there... this scene greeted us.

This was 10am.

We went to McDonalds for breakfast and I took the picture above. As we were eating and chatting over our food, there were announcements from the management every now and then. "For those who would like to buy Spiderman 3 tickets, please head to counter 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. For all other movies, please proceed to counter 1."

Uh... /swt. =.=

Thank goodness for pre-booking.

An hour later - we got ready to leave after breakfast. I took another shot from McD.

Hoo boy.

Movie's at 12, so we took a little stroll around the area, and when we came back, and here's what we saw as we were walking towards the cinema.


Okaaaaaay.

Watched the movie, came out of the cinema, and voila, the bloody place is still packed even after the movie.




Well... At least they were decent enough to queue around the cinema roundabout thingy now instead of blocking the entrance all the other shops previously.

Oh the movie? I'm lazy to talk about it.

Um, here's a short summary of what I thought about the movie. Harry's cool, Spidey's a dork, MJ's a bitch, Gwen's kinda hot. And Harry's butler is an idiot.
Just felt like saying, its really wonderful to have you... and I'm sorry I didn't appreciate you better.




Thank you..for everything, dear. X3

I love carnations X3

Too much hate in the net these days...pftt...dun get those ppl...PMS I think...nvm...

Yeah...I love carnations...but I love you more my dear!

Took these pics in my room the other day. Got a bunch of carnations, put in my nice, square vase, put in front of comp with a lil dim yellow lighting, and snap away :D

Haven't been taking flower pics in such a long time ade. Used to take a lot back at home in my garden but haven't been home since CNY...meh. Soon..soon...hee~ (expect a lot of floral and fluffy dog pic spam then :D )


As usual, taken with Olympus SP510UZ.

Step aside, men in tights, pirates, transforming robots, green orges and ninjas!

This fanboy here is looking forward to different sort of movie this summer's blockbuster season!

Speaking of which... I've preordered book 7! Have you?

Why is the rum gone?

...because Captain Jack Sparrow decided to make himself a tad bit too tipsy and aggravated the whole village...
Pic sent by Althras...guild master of QJ's guild in World of Warcraft MMORPG...well...you'd understand the '*agro' caption if you're familiar with WoW or other MMORPGs...hehe...

Has it been a year already, since we all went to watch Pirates 2? ...almost, I guess...gee...time flies... (doesn't it, when you tend to enjoy life too much? XD )

Very much looking forward to the 3rd part of the movie, Pirates of the Caribbean - At World's End...hope this time we won't be left clinging to our chair going "Ehhh???....next year??!!" ..haha!

Hmm...dearie still haven't watch the first show ne?... /goes find my DVD ...one day we watch?? Hopefully before watching the 3rd part (so you won't be blur like last year XP )

Pirates of the Caribbean 2 was hilarious...it was better than what I'd expected so I hope PotC3 won't disappoint me.../looks at cast list ... o.O ...hmmm...


List of shows I wanna watch in May 07
1. Spiderman 3
2. Pirates 3
3. Shrek 3

(...heh...I just realised...they're all 3s...)


note: * 'aggro/agro' in WoW is when you perform certain actions and you have the creature's attention...these 'actions' including (of course) whacking/shooting/slamming your shield in their face, taunting them, healing someone so they wun die (yep..they dun like u healing the person they killin, of course), or simply running too close to them.
Minn-Yi: You hairpin's crooked...you hair's so messy...
Fifi: I know...
Minn-Yi: ...and dirty..
Fifi: SHUT UP!
Minn-Yi: You stink too! XD
Fifi: GROWWLLL!!!


Minn-Yi: I better not let daddy carry me later else I might get some tick over.
Fifi: [/wriggles struggles tries to bite] WTF DO YOU HAVE AGAINST ME YOU LIL SHOWOFF KID YOU ALREADY STOLE THE LIMELIGHT FROM ME AND NOW YOU WANNA STEAL AFFECTION FROM ME SUMMORE #$@%^$#@%#$@#!@$%$!!!~~ /BARK BARK GROWL!!



My niece, Minn-Yi, 'camwhoring' again...haha...I think mum/sis/bro has a few gigs of her pics....her face is splattered across several folders in the comp back at home....poor Fifi....

Bro's bday 3 weeks ago (precisely a month after mine..hee~)

Minn-Yi: Happy Birthday Daddy!!


Pics taken by 2nd sis, using Olympus C760UZ
