How exciting. I'm actually feeling weirdly nostalgic now. I can't quite put my finger on it.. If I'm honest with myself, I just really want to fast forward 2009 so that SPM will be over ASAP. ;p But then again.. I'm really looking forward to spending my last year of high school with the people I've come to know and love. (:
I'm ALSO seriously looking forward to meeting new people. I am SO getting out more often. Or I'm going to try anyway, I'm kind of grounded. Not because I did anything wrong, just coz Mom doesn't really want me to go out too much. >.<
But I'm still going to try making 2009 fun! Despite SPM. Bleh.
So happy new year everyone! May God shower you guys with so many blessings that you won't have enough room for it and will have to give some to me. XD
I'M KIDDING!!! Seriously. :P
But yes. God bless you guys! Here's a virtual toast (as William Sexy Beckett says) to all of you. (:
First off, (obviously) I'm home! And I feel awesomely rejuvenated.
I have a new little big brother now. Zen. LOOOOL, little coz he's younger, big coz he's taller. Like, ALOT taller, he's 6'1. Insane!
Secondly, I'm reeeeeeaally regretting not being able to go for Comic Fiesta today. ): I wish I checked Mishi's blog damnit! But oh well. I've got a dinner tonight, I'll be seeing Marcia then.
Thirdly, I'm super excited!!For some reason, excited to go back to school. Not for the studying and teachers (though Pn Asimah will be a welcome face), but to see you guys! Except the Form Fivers. I will kidnap you all, I swear.
Why am I so excited? Well, this sounds REALLY weird, but I'm really psyched about sharing Jesus with you guys. The things he's done for me are worth listening to, really. I'm not going to stuff a crucifix down your throats, but I'll probably be talking a little bit more about Jesus and I'll be doing quite a few things differently.
Numero Uno : I'm going to stop swearing!!
So.. You guys gotta help me, don't swear around me. Pretty please? Haha. Thanks.
Anyway, I've kind of gotta run, so I'll leave with a great big Yuletide greeting!
And groan at all the bad special effects. They SUCK.
When James the tracker did this deep sniff thing, I burst out laughing in the cinema.
It was so funny! His face.
Oh, and Edward does this thing where he STARES at Bella all the time (I think it's supposed to be romantic, it's really not.) and when he STARES at Bella, his eyes BUG out, and then its as if he's saying :
I'm going to STARE you to death, Bella, I am going to STARE you to death. To DEATH.
Lol. My mom and I made new discoveries today. Nose is actually really affordable. I was always under the impression that Nose was this extremely expensive place that we could never afford and that was why we always went to Vincci(which kinda sucks now, to tell you the truth. It's so boring in there, gawd.). So yes, I have these super cute flats from Nose, they're blue and they look really cool. I'll take a photo sometime and put it up, coz they're so darn cute. ^^ RM39.90, or something like that.
Then we went into i=am, which is that Will-I-Am store. I always thought THAT was really expensive too, so we never went in. Plus, the stuff in there always looked pretty lala from the outside. The BRIGHTNESS of the colours in there were insane, and there was so much frigging gold and silver, metallic too, not matte or anything like that. Kinda scary. So yes, we decided to go in because we saw these ultra cool sandals. They were the lightest things in the world, I swear! It's like you're not wearing anything at all. Then we found really cute canvas shoes, just plain ones coz I've been looking for a pair to draw on. (: RM45, I think.
So we ended up buying those, coz they were surprisingly cheaper than Pallas that you could find in like Giant and Bata, and much lighter. More wearable. They're so adorable. I've already started my sketches on them. I can't wait to actually paint them, it's gonna look so damn cool.
-jumps in glee-
So yes, that's my news for today. ^^ Two pairs of shoes for under RM100. I swear, Seventeen magazine should take shopping tips from my mom and I. I mean, come on Seventeen. Which teenager (unless they come from a rich-ass family) can affored Juicy Couture and Ted Baker? PFFT.
And shoes from Steve Madden or Jessica Simpson at Stage. Gawd!
Kay. It's really late and I haven't been sleeping well lately, so I'm going to go to bed. (: Night!
"So kiss me goodbye, I may not make it out alive." - Cobra Starship feat. William Beckett (TAI), Travis McCoy (GCH) and someone from The Sounds (XD), Snakes On A Plane (Bring It)
I'm BOREDD. slept over at Sammie's yesterday. Lol, we had fun. :P Hey Sam, remember this?
"Uncle John? Uncle John? Can you teach me to swim, Uncle John? Uncle John?"
Inside joke. :P
I'm not gonna describe the stuff we did. Embarassing much. XD We ate hard-as-rock muffins. Well, the first muffin was. After that, they were not bad. (:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEBORABARABA!!!!~ Mua ha ha. I'm sorry I can't come on Saturday. ;.;
I'm leaving for Langkawi tomorrow! Ya'll better miss me. XD Kay. I'm really lazy right now, so I'm going back to sleep. Ooh, did I ever mention how incredibly SEXY William Beckett is? He's just the sexiest boy on Earth. Skinny, but sexy. His hair is AWESOME. EEEEEK. He looks super good in the video with Cobra Starship - Snakes on a Plane (Bring It). MUA HA HA! Sexy gilerr.
"We fight webreak up, we kiss we make up." -Katy Perry, Hot N Cold.
I finished Inkdeath. It's a gorgeous, gorgeous book. My words can't describe all the words in it. YOU MUST READ. It WILL blow you away. And the arguments between Fenoglio and Rosenquartz and Elinor are particularly amusing. :P
HAHAH. I was just watching the Fallout Boy video for I Don't Care (catchy, but not particularly intriguing) and I love the end where Sarah Pahlin shows up. XDD Hilarious.
Have I ever expressed my love for The Academy Is..? They're so good. William Beckett is like.. Sexiest thing alive. Okay, ONE of the sexiest things - I mean, people. Men. - alive. SO GORGEOUS. Aaaah. If they do a video for His Girl Friday, I will fight tooth and nail to be in it!! D< Anything to kiss William Beckett. I was screaming when About A Girl's video came out, he jus looked so darn'd sexy in that blue shirt. And his smile! -swoon- Haha, this is fangirl-ing to the max.
Anyway. I've been having pretty weird dreams. I might start a dream blog (Dlog?) so watch out for new cookies. (:
"Bite your lip, pull me in ; It's not the sin, it's the mess that feels so right." - The Academy Is.., His Girl Friday.
I am almost finished with Inkdeath, the third book in the trilogy of Inkheart. It is..
Fantastic. Really, truly. It's like, so amazing how it draws you into the story. I love getting lost in books, it was almost as if I was in the Wayless Woods, next to the Black Prince, feeling Meggie's confusion between Farid and Doria, creeping up behind the Milksop with Mo and Dustfinger.
Ooh!! I'm going to Langkawi next weekend for mom's birthday. Leaving Friday, coming back Sunday. I'm so sorry I'm missing your birthday Debbie!! ;.; I'll make it up to you. (:
Its my first holiday in three years, so I'm pretty stoked. I just PRAY I don't get my period while we're there coz it would awesomely SUCK not to be able to swim at the beach. D<
Anyway. Oh yeh! I went to watch High School Musical 3 with Aqila yesterday. She came to my house like super early in the morning and we went to One Utama. We spent like 7 hours there. And not a single goodlooking guy did we see.
DAMN SAD. Gosh.
HSM 3 wasn't actually as bad as I thought it was gonna be. I loved the usual Ryan and Sharpay act and the new characters like Jimmy "Rocket Man" Zara. And Zac Efron, admittedly, has a very sexy back. But the story was, as expected, ridiculously predictable. Aqila and I could predict what kind of songs were coming up. XD
"Oh God. So lame."
"Now, they're gonna burst into song.."
"Yeah, another "You and Me" song.."
-cue music and Vanessa's squeaky voice-
Lol. It was pretty funny like that. Too much of Troy Bolton and Whatshername. I wanted more Ryan and Sharpay!! D< class="Apple-style-span" style="color: rgb(204, 204, 255);">more extensive than ever - far more than any high school would be able to pay for. The dance scenes were fantastic though, the choreography was so damn cool. :D Oh, and I liked this one scene when Troy was doing his "I HAVE TO FIND MYSELF" act and song (thankfully, no reflections in the water) and he was in the corridor, which was like this box that kept turning. It was without a doubt, one of the cooler sets. :P
OH and when Troy and Chad stole Jimmy and his friend's clothes. That was HILARIOUS. XD
That's all for now, I suppose. I think I'll definitely go with polaroidcandy. OR, I just had this idea, chewypolaroidcandy! XDD Let me know. (:

If I missed anyone out, I'm sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm pretty sure I did though. ;.; Anyway! I wanted to say.. -drum roll-
GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS FOR ASS-PEE-AMM!!!!!!! Or, SPM. :P I know some of ya'll are stressing, some of ya'll are just slumber-ing(Mayu), but hey, it's gonna be over before you know it, and then you'll all be FREE!! Do your best! Ganbatte! XD I know you guys will do well, I have faith in you!
-GIANT GROUP HUG-
Okay! I thought of something to say, then I forgot, so here's something else on Twlight :
There's this one line that she uses in it that made me wanna rip the book apart. In her immense effort to use canggih words in this book, she has written this one line that not only doesn't make any sense, but also sounds rather absurd.
"...while he looks abstractedly out of the window.."
WTF. WTF. WTF. WTF. WTF. ABSTRACTEDLY?!?!?! Please, woman. It's DIStractedly. DISTRACTEDLY. DIS-FRIGGING-TRACTEDLY! Who in the HELL uses the word ABSTRACTEDLY for such sentences?!? How do you stare ABSTRACTEDLY out of a window, in a weird ABSTRACT pose or something?!?!? Geez woman.
Sigh. So yes, that's all for now. WAIT! I ALMOST FRIGGING FORGOT!
Guess what people? I GOT MY DSLR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I DIDN'T HAVE TO SELL MY KIDNEY FOR IT!!!!!!!!! More about my new baby in my next post. Ciao! ^^
Clyde : Hello, ladies and gentlemen (or boys), welcome to Kateh's Book Review!! Right now, we are reviewing the best-selling book among teens and teeny-boppers alike, Twilight!! Let's welcome the all-famous Kateh to the stage. Applause!
-applause from non-existant crowd of adoring fans-
Hello everyone! Okay, so I've only read half of this oh-so-popular book, Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. It's easy, at first glance, to see how this book became so popular with teens. The plot is simple - girl, here seen by the name of Isabella Swan, preferably known as Bella, moves to new town, girl meets boy, they fall in love, yada yada yada. BUT! Throw in an impossibly gorgeous boy who turns out to be an irresistable VAMPIRE, and hell yeah, girl, you got a best seller!
So yes, what IS the deal with this book? Well. I've only gotten through half of the book. Not normal for me, I'm usually a pretty fast reader. So what's taking me so long?
This book is just SO SLOW. My gawd. Snail's pace. Stephenie Meyer seems to pride herself in describing every scene, every day, every-FREAKING-moment in such excruciating detail that after reading six adjectives in the same sentence, one will want to tear their hair out and scream, "OKAY I GET IT!!"
"Of the three boys, one was big - muscled like a serious weightlifter, with dark curly hair. Another was taller, leaner, but still muscular, and honey blonde. The last was lanky, less bulky, with untidy, bronze-coloured hair. He was more boyish than the others, who looked like they could be in college, or even teachers here rather than students."
Are you tired yet? And that was only describing half the Cullens.
I HAVE FINALLY FINISHED THE BOOK!! Verdict : It is the most sluggish book in the WORLD.
Yes people. I WILL admit that, yes, Edward Cullen would probably be pretty difficult to resist. He's feisty, mysterious, etc. He seems to have one very major flaw though, in the way Meyer describes him. How does she CONSTANTLY describe him? One word, my darlings.
Look, if i wanted to kiss "cold marble lips" or feel "cold marble arms" wrapped around me, I'll just go make out with a statue, okay? Geez. So yes. Why is this book the slowest moving book in the world? Well, three-quarters of the book is dedicated to Edward and Bella's slow courting, followed by :
"I love you." "I love you too." "I miss you." "I know." "Never leave me." "I never will." "I love you." "I know. I love you too."
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH SHUTUP!! And then, when it finally starts to speed up ever so lightly, it only starts speeding up towards the end of the book. Like, when there's two inches of book left. And then, James doesn't kill her. I was like, come on James! You go boy! Woot woo- Shit.
Yeah, she didn't die. But then again, if she did, there wouldn't be any sequels. .. Shit. WHY JAMES WHY?!?!?
So yes. I'll stop here now because I'm REALLY sleepy, I don't know why. The rant will continue! If I feel like it lah. :p
Okay, so I didn't win the WHOLE thing, i won for Theme A for the digital compact division. The theme was Indulge Metropolitan. Stupid theme, but yeah. I won another digital camera, but it's not even as good as the one I have NOW, it runs on AA batteries for goodness' sake. But yes. I am THRILLED.
So yes. My first ever competition. I didn't realise that it was going to be such a HUGE event, I thought it was going to be a small scale event, not even a hundred people, but boy was I WRONG. At least a thousand people had signed up for it, Mom estimated about 400+ people in the digital compact division, which was the one I was in. So yes. Out of 400 photos for Theme A, I won! Omg lol.
Unfortunately, I don't get to keep the winning photo, I should have copied it on my memory card. ;.; but I have one of the trial photos I took, so here it is :
