  • re...start?

    Monday, Dec 30, 2013 10:15PM / Standard Entry / hmm...

    i wanna start blogging again!yeah, right... let's see how long you can keep it up this time...

    so i heard, less people blog now...
    i think it's because of social networks... don't you think? we tend to "micro-blog" by posting "status"es and "tweet"s more than sitting down (or my case, lying down) and type a full post, eventually finishing it by hitting the "publish entry" button down below...

    i guess micro-blogging is true to the moment, but lacks depth in a way...

    it's been a whirlwind this 2013, and i'm somewhat glad it's never coming back... so are the many people and things that were lost along the way... 

    it's made me a more firm believer of karma: of what goes around, comes around...
    though i have lost, i have also gained...

    i need some order in my life, hence the need to discipline by blogging... yeah right, like that's gonna have a control on you

    i believe we are our very own best critic, so let's see where this leads to...

    p/s in my last blog, i was excited about going to Seoul, and yes, i made it there earlier this year despite the cold weather, even saw BIGBANG 2 nights in a row, because i was kicked out the first time for taking pictures and videos they were very strict. the 2nd night got even better because i had a nearer seat to the stage at a cheaper price, yet what's ironic is that i didn't even get to enjoy the seat much, was standing 95% out of excitement. singing and swaying to the beats! it wasn't just a concert, it was a huge party

  • looks like my determination isn't strong enough...

    Sunday, Dec 2, 2012 10:36PM / Standard Entry / hmm...

    but it's not what you think... 

    my  for BIGBANG is enormous, or should i say, my eagerness to see them LIVE is unbounded by destination...

    and thank you very much to YG Family, i'm flying to South Korea once again... for "THE FINAL" BIGBANG ALIVE GALAXY TOUR!!! 
    WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO~~~ EVERYBODY SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    YES!!!! even typing about it makes me excited 

    i can buy whatever i forgot to buy a month plus ago, and YES!!! I CAN SEE MY BOYS PERFORM IN THEIR HOME COUNTRY WITH ALL THE FULL EQUIPMENT AND COSTUMES!!!!

    IT'S GONNA BE THE BOMB!! SUPER 대박!!!

    now i just have to wait til the 11th when tickets start selling on GMarket... gosh... heart thumping!!! and then for my flight ticket, i'm hoping that AirAsia is flying direct from Kota Kinabalu to Incheon, because i know AirAsia is opening a new route for Kota Kinabalu-Osaka from 21st December 2012... can't wait CAN'T WAIT CAN'T WAIT CAN'T WAIT

  • determined to go to HKG between 7 - 11 Dec 2012

    Monday, Nov 5, 2012 9:16AM / Standard Entry / hmm...

    sorry that i haven't been blogging again...

    i was busy with this translation project i got for a road construction manual, which i thought would be good extra pocket money for my recent trip to South Korea...
    turns out it was tougher than i thought, so i couldn't finish it in time, and i only got half the money for deposit to travel... so now i'm gonna continue finishing it by the end of this month to get the full pay, which some thought i wasn't paid good enough bcuz it's much lower than what usual translation jobs would pay... but it's ok, Japanese is not my strongest language to translate into English, so i'm learning too, learning costs money, so that's how i think about it... it may be little, but at least i'm improving by the day...

    so on to my trip to Korea, i don't wanna say much about it, i'll let my pictures show about the trip later on... there were hick-ups too, but that's life, i guess that's my life? lots of hick-ups to teach me how to progress next, and what should be done, and not to be done...

    and yesterday something really bad happened... my most important memory card died on me. in it was live performances that i took really hard effort in shooting, and also fireworks display that i took whilst being bumped into, being blocked, being not tall enough... maybe i left it in the laptop too long cuz i thought i did transfer the files, turns out it didn't go and when i checked again it died... 

    i never cried so bad over lost photos/videos before, but the thought of the hick-ups and efforts it took me to take this photo, not to mention the main reason i went there this time was to watch the Fireworks Festival, i broke down... 3 times... twice in front of my really good guy friends bcuz i was sending some souvenirs from Korea over...

    so now, after the frustrations and not being able to sleep last night, i decided to go to Hong Kong to watch the concert that i missed in my own country while traveling in Korea... the BIGBANG Alive Tour that will run from 8-10 December 2012. lose 1, gain 1 back... or at least make an effort to go for something i really really wanna see... last year i saw GDTOP & Seungri performing for just a slot of Korean Music Wave in KL, so i know it's something that's worth the effort. money, i can still earn... but time lost... that's something i'll lose forever...

    all friends that went in multiple different locations all said that it was a well worth concert to go for... Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, even the States... so now, the next nearest and most convenient location would be Hong Kong...

    i checked the flight tickets and it's somewhere i can afford (to owe on my credit card)... as for the tickets... i'm wishing for my luck cuz tickets on Urbtix for all 3 days were sold out 

    now i'm waiting for people to reply me via Twitter or Facebook if there's anybody with extra tickets or what so ever...

    so if anybody in AliveNotDead knows anybody who has tickets, or any helpful VIPs (BIGBANG fans) out there... please help me out... i just need 1 ticket... 1 ticket only...

    thanks a bunch, i know i've not been be a great AnDer but i'm sure to share the remaining pictures that i have from Korea one of these nights...

  • Happy Mid-autumn Festival!!

    Sunday, Sep 30, 2012 11:17AM / Standard Entry / hmm...

    sorry that the lazy-bug had me again...

    well, it's the 15th day of the 8th Lunar month, which means we're celebrating Mid-autumn Festival today!! a great day it should be, for kids will be running around at night carrying lanterns, and adults have a chance to sit around together after dinner, under the big round moon, having tea, pomelo and mooncakes.

    that, is probably the image i have about Mid-autumn festival... the exact memory of celebrating Mid-autumn Festival as a child, however, was not on the fun of playing lanterns, it was more on the food. though my maternal-grandparents have passed away long before i was born, but everybody in my mother's family, those residing in the same area, would get together and have dinner, a FEAST actually, since the amount of food would cover the whole long table where everyone will be sitting at! in the eyes and mind of a child, the enormous amount of food on the table beats anything else...

    the reunion dinner would usually take place on the weekend before the celebration, unless the actual day is right on a weekend. the ladies in the family would be busy preparing the ingredients and cooking since noon... sometimes i would help, but most of the time i'm considered a nuisance as the youngest among my cousins: not a helping hand, but more of a destructing hand since i would mess up most of the things i lay my hands on  not your average gentle little girl, more like a lost boy  the scent of spices cooking in the kitchen would fill the whole house, sometimes even choking!!

    as time passes by, we kids grow up, some of us no longer stay nearby, some even overseas, and some have passed on, the family somehow downsized without us realizing it. Especially since my 2nd aunt passed away, being the "cook" of the family, without her, preparing food has became a little bit tricky... as the number of people lessen, the amount of food laid on the table has become less grand than past days... it's almost a normal dinner with a little bit more food laid out, and sometimes, we would opt to eat out since it's tiresome to prepare food with less experienced hands, and a pain to clean the utensils and dinner plates afterwards... the fact is, the older generations are getting old, and the younger generations are getting little in numbers...

    in days to come, i'd probably be eating festive dinners alone, no difference than any other days... so it's probably a good idea to have more kids to keep each other company, instead of giving lots of love to the one and only child when they were young... 

    that aside, i hope the weather will continue to be as fine as this sunny weather i see outside my window... let's hope kids can play lantern tonight under the big bright moon!!! and enjoy your mooncakes to those celebrating!!

  • a little sense of achievement?

    Wednesday, Jun 27, 2012 2:33AM / Standard Entry

    this has been on my mind for a few days now, so i better pen it down before i lose this idea...

    i have a reason to believe that people, especially adults, who like gaming (video games, computer games, online games) are somewhat not very contented with their life... so gaming acts like an outlet for them to release the tension that has built up in themselves...bcuz while gaming, one is absorbed into another world that is away from reality: the troubles in life, the frustrations are all gone, and every winning is a sense of achievement that may be lacking in their actual life...

    i realized this bcuz, i too have been gaming these days 
    tried not to get myself hooked on games bcuz knowing myself, it would be hard to lay them down... however, i guess i needed some sense of achievement...
    it's not like i'm playing really challenging games, but just simple games... and even that can make me feel somewhat good about myself...

    instead of playing games, i think i should reflect about my life... what is lacking, and what is to be achieved, instead of hiding in a surreal world playing worthless games...
