After the long wait, Romeo x Juliet OP: Inori - You Raise Me Up, is finally released last night...haha! I can see a very frustrated Kid with his torrent speed :P (You're not alone buddy...)



祈り~You Raise Me Up
Performed by: Lena Park
Original Lyrics: Brendan Graham | Original Composition: Rolf Løvland
Japanese Lyrics: Kaito Okachimachi | Arrangement: Masayuki Sakamoto, Satoshi Takebe

うるんだ瞳の奥に
urunda hitomi no oku ni
変わらぬ君の姿
kawaranu kimi no sugata
「どこまで世界は続の」
[dokomade sekai wa tsuzuku no]
途絶えた日々の言葉
todaeta hibi no kotoba

[Chorus]
凍える嵐の夜も
kogoeru arashi no yoru mo
まだ見ぬ君へ続く
mada minu kimi e tsuzuku
教えて 海渡る風
oshiete umi wataru kaze
祈りは時を越える
inori wa toki wo koeru

霞んだ地平の向こうに
kasunda chihei no mukou ni
眠れる星の挿話
nemureru hoshi no souwa
「明けない夜はないよ」と
[akenai yoru wa nai yo] to
あの日の罪が笑う
ano hi no tsumi ga warau

震える君を抱き寄せ
furueru kimi o daki yose
届かぬ虚空を仰ぐ
todokanu kokū wo aogu
聴こえる 闇照らす鐘
kikoeru yami terasu kane
君へと道は遠く
kimi e to michi wa tōku

[Chorus] x 2

祈りは時を越える
inori wa toki wo koeru

The anime version of Romeo x Juliet adds a 'twist' to your normal 'Romeo & Juliet', by William Shakespeare. This show centres on the two main character, Lady Juliet Fiammatta Asto Capulet, (...so long x.x) the last surviving member of the House of Capulet and Romeo Candorebanto Montague from the house of Montague. When she was a young child, her entire family was massacred by none other than Lord Montague, Romeo's father. Lord Montague takes up the throne as Duke of the aerial city of Neo Verona and brings fear to her citizens.

By a cruel twist of fate, Juliet ran into Romeo and the two ended up falling in love with each other.

...ok I'm lazy to talk further. Go watch if you wanna know. Or read here RxJ Wiki.

I find this show to be rather sweet (<3 episode 10) althought some of you may say its rather predictable. For me, I'd say this show's worth a watch....and oh..did I mention they have cute guys too? (no...romeo's wimp-ish...its not him...)

Mmm..i'm off now XD

Carbon Copies

I just noticed something while blog-hopping the other day....some ppl's blog, those that were loaded with buckets of self photos....


The faces in the picture (note: I said faces, not poses etc etc...the face...smile, eyes, hairstle)...were all the same. I don't mean it that way (as in "Of course same la..same person ma!"). I meant like...the look in each and every photo...its like you copy out the face and tampal in every other picture...only the bodypose and scene (and ppl who are taking picture along with the person) are different....kinda reminds me of Photoshop except I'm pretty sure those pics were real...

Swt...talk bout Ctrl C Ctrl V..


Anyways....mum's back...y'day actually. I'm heading back (Penang->SP) in an hour or so...went shopping whole day today... XP ..Bro bought me a pair of pants...keceked! Sis in law bought new HP. Bro thinking of getting a Sony-Ericsson Cybershot...phewwwitt. Saw the pair of shoes I wanted in Vincci (@^#$ damn shop had to close so early the other day) except that they were in Size 9...geh...

Looking forward to Tuesday. :3

Happy Birthday My Love!

When I Fall In Love - Nat King Cole

When I fall in love
It will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love

In a restless world
Like this is
Love is ended before it's begun
And too many
Moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun

When I give my heart
It will be completely
Or I'll never give my heart

[And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you] x2


Happy Birthday My Dearest! Here's a little song for you...
I hope you love the little surprise I have for you...and I hope that you've received it by the time you read this... X3
Wish I'm there with you now...mew /paw :3

Really looking forward to seeing you again real soon...and I hope you'll have (had XD) a great time celebrating with your family at home.

Lots of Love, hugs and kisses,

Your Kristine




p/s: Ok (to the others)...excuse me for the utter mushiness but I can only do this once a year so you can close your browser and throw up your lunch/dinners :P lol!

I was wandering around the plant stalls during Penang Floral Fest the other day, and filled my time taking pics of these flowers while waiting for aunt to choose the pot she wanted...






...when I sumbled upon this flower's pot.






Being curious, I took a closer look



Harry, 90 bucks.

Yep...must be the hype... ^^;;

Timeout!

Once in a while, its a really good idea to get 'unplugged' and get yourself away from the comp...well...if there's a good reason to do so, that is.

Last weekend, I came over to Penang to kinda help aunt take care of my niece (her babysitter oh 'MC'...hehe)...so dad and I packed a bit of our stuff, I packed my CPU (...bro took PC to repair...sigh)...and the dog..and her cage...and stayed at bro's place.

Sis came over (didn't expect her to camp here too but it was great having her around as well!) and we had a really nice dinner that my sis-in-law tapau-ed earlier. Curry fish head (gosh the curry was to die for) some chicken etcetc and bro tapau-ed fried oyster. Sooo NICE! X3 ...wanna try laksa sumwhere near here since sis says its nice. Hope its as nice as Penang Road's.

Anyways...sis felt guilty for pigging at the dinner table so she asked if we wanna take a stroll along Gurney sidewalk...hell...I didn't expect her to wanna walk the WHOLE STRETCH of it! Otherwise I would have wore sumthing comfier...My poor feet in my flats (cuz that's the only shoe I brought to Penang)...but the long stroll alone wasn't really that bad...

...the shopping next day was. LOL. Girl power. Fury of 'shopping crazed girls' unleashed. Sis treated us to Chilis in G-Hotel (just beside Gurney)...YES Chilis in Penang!! w00t indeed. After that we went Gurney (and she tried on a bunch of clothes)...then lingered off to Padini Concept Store. No luck on that pair of open-toed I wanted. Ah well...'god of shoes' wants me to save up for sumthing else I suppose...hee~ Walked around summore till bro called asking if we wanna head back already or not...haha! Someone can't tahan anymore...sis, aunt and myself still haven't finish lerr!!! But we decided to head back anyways as it was getting pretty late...for the baby.

Walked quite a distance (thanks to kiamsiap bro who parked so far away just to get free parking...grr) and had dinner sumwhere near where he parked. Very nice Singapore Fried Bihun. Must learn. Head back, and bro and dad konked - Proves that guys have low stam in Shopping... XD ...Oh did I mention bro walked all the way back? Cuz sis was playfully threatening to leave him behind and bro just simply waved us off and he walked back himself...haha....but here's the wtf element. He got home first before we did. I blame it on Penang weekend shopping traffic jam.

Pretty proud to say, I didn't get anything. The clothes on sale were either not nice, or if they're nice and have a nice pricetag, you can see thru them. Except another shade from Elianto eyeshadow range - Lavender. Love it. Wonder why I never gotten it last time. Cham la...I was telling to my sister, 1/3 times I pass Elianto, I'll enter the store and browse. 1/3 times that I browse, I'll definitely get myself sumthing. She replied to me "Ya know, 1/3 of the time I pass Elianto, I'll enter but everytime I enter, I'll DEFINATELY get sumthing. Who more cham?" :P

Lingered around and headed back to SP pretty late (or so it felt. Was dead tired when I got home)...practically flung Fifi in when we got home cuz she was acting so awfully bitchy. I wasn't in the mood to play along with her. Took down my stuff from the car. Changed to pajamas. Cleaned up a bit and fainted on bed. W/o the dog. She smelled like some raw vegetable, made me wanna throw up. Woke up next morning and she was on the floor, greeting me. How sweet.

Dad took us all to a new place to have breakfast. Since its in the low-cost area, the food were priced pretty cheap as well but taste good enough to get my picky sister to say "Dad, next time can come back here eat ade". She dragged us to Giant hypermarket later on and bought a bunch of carrots and it only cost her RM2ish...made her go O.O cuz she never expected carrots to be so cheap. Made us carrot juice in the evening. Aunt made chicken porridge for lunch+dinner (gotta try make that back in Mlk) and a very delicious dish of eggplant topped with minced meat and dried shrimp. Lovely. Sis only ate the topping =.=

Next morning I slept in, and sis made pancake. Nice to have her cook once in a while. Pilsburry buttermilk. Must try. Taste so much better than the normal ones. Lunch was sotong in sour-sambal..err...sauce? Taste great. Really, its great to have aunt around (aside from the company to chat with...hee). Went out with my ex-classmate and walked around Central Square (the only daytime hangout-able place in SP). Wish my other classmates gonna have some gathering or sumthing cuz this is one of the only time that we MMUians get to have our (stupidtrimestersystem) break along with their 2 month semester break.

Headed back from mini-outing. Ate dinner. Lazed around living room. Threw things into bag (err..packed) and ran off to Penang...again. Gonna stay till Friday/Sat this time (yay for streamyx..bro's compy back). Mum's coming back from Russia this Fri. Hope she had a great trip.

Glad to be back (on the net)...tho having my siblings around certainly was a very much welcomed change.
