I seriously love the fashion in Gossip Girl! I've heard people talk about how they like the fashion in Sex & The City and now Gossip Girl is voted as one of the best shows that has the best dressed cast!! AND some websites do sell the clothes at cheap prices... well only for the States...
I really like Blair's outfits. Funny don't you think? In the books, Serena is always the best dressed but in the show, Blair is! Anyway, her signature headband is the best and Chuck' signature scarf! My cousin totally digs his scarves and now she's wearing it too!!
I’m back from my wonderful and FUN holiday!! Came back this morning at 2 and arrived home around 2.30… really a tiring journey! But well… I broke a record for myself!! Tee hee… After landing in Jakarta, my big family and I went straight to Lembang, Bandung to celebrate Hari Raya Haji which was the next day. We set out to my uncle’s villa high up on the mountain at around 6pm but lo and behold! We were caught in a massive traffic jam all the way for 6 HOURS!! Usually, it’ll take us around 2 and a half hours to reach Lembang but because of the long holiday, people were leaving Jakarta to go home to their families! And boy was it massive!! All the way through the highways! We finally reached at 4 am in the morning!! That was a record for me cos I wasn’t sleepy AT ALL!! Well… I did sleep in the car but I wasn’t sleepy!
The massive traffic jam that lasted for 6 bloody hours!! Our dinner in KFC during the wee hours of the morning!
Mariana, Me and little Safiah in my Uncle's villa in Lembang!
Sadly we had to sleep… forced by our mothers cos we’ll need to get up early the next day for the slaughtering. You see during Hari Raya Haji we do our “kurban” tosymbolize the meaning of it when Prophet Abraham wanted to slaughter his own son Prophet Ishmael and before he could slit his son’s throat, God replaced Prophet Ishmael with a sheep and that’s how it all began. It’s my second time watching it in Indonesia cos firstly you won’t be able to watch it here in S’pore except for selected mosques and secondly, instead of buying a sheep, you can get a cow for seven million rupiah which is equivalent to S$200. We don’t do kurban to have the meat to ourselves but to distribute the meat to the poor and needy. So after the kurban, we distributed the meat to the villages in the valley. It was a very meaningful day for all of us especially for me as my cousins and I bought a cow together to help the villagers.
Alright.... that's all I can write for today. Tune in for the next one! LOL
Tomorrow's Hari Raya Haji and I'm flying off to Jakarta soon. Soon as in a few hours time. Our flight's at 1450 but it was rescheduled to 1550 so there's still a few more hours left to play with. Yesterday, I found out that one of the shops in Changi Airport sells Hilary's With Love perfume! I was ecstatic and I thought I could buy it before leaving but sadly, my departure's at Terminal 1 instead of Terminal 2 where the shop is!! T_T
Maybe, if I have the chance I could get it or after I my holidays I could purchase it! I mean if I buy it now, I'll have to put it in my luggage cos liquid/solutions aren't allowed in hand luggages! That really sucks!!
Anyway... I can't wait to go for a holiday...but when I come back lots of things to do! Group meetings, basic driving theory test on the 2nd!! I wish time was slower than usual! =P
I'm embarrassed and shameful at myself that instead of supporting Hady for Asian Idol... I was busy doing something else which I can't vaguely remember! Gosh.. memory loss must be getting to me.
Anyway... CONGRATULATIONS HADY MIRZA!! You did us proud!! Business class tickets all over the world?! Okay... if it's not for Muttons at Midnight, I wouldn't have known who had won Asian Idol and I was very shocked when Hady won!! He really did us proud!! Well done!!
Here's a clip where they announced the results. He was speechless!! That's genuine I tell ya! LOL
It's finalised!! After 18 years not knowing... I'm an O+ and it was for free!! Tee hee. Well today for my bio practical we did a blood grouping tests so it's really fun for those who doesn't know their blood group! Being an O+ has both its advantages and disadvantages. Firstly, I'm a universal donor which means if anybody who is not the same blood type as me, I can help them. However, if I'm in trouble, I can only receive O+ blood only. My friends teased those who has blood AB+ as selfish cos they can receive all types of blood but can't donate their own. LOL
I think I'm really desperate to find a good book to read cos it has been my third time reading Rosie Dunne by Cecilia Ahern and it still never fails me to make me laugh. I had to restrain myself from laughing out loud on the train and buses!! My god... that'll be embarrassing! Anyway, I found this hilarious conversation between Rosie and Alex!
Alex: Hello Rosie: Oh so he is still alive. Where have you been for the past few weeks? Alex: Hiding Rosie: From whom? Alex: You. Rosie: Why? Alex: Because I'm dating Bethany again and I was afraid to tell you because you hate her with a passion and then you found out from her first which made things even worse. So I was hiding from you. Rosie: Why? Alex: Because I'd thought you'd come over here and kill me. Rosie: Why? Alex: Because you think she's a slut and that she's no good for me Rosie: Why? Alex: Because you're my overprotective best friend and you're always hated my girlfriends (and wife) and I've always hated your boyfriends (and husband). Rosie: Why? Alex: Well because he had an affair, for one... Rosie: Why? Alex: Because he was an absolute fool and he didn't no how lucky he was. But let's not talk about him anymore because he's gone and he's never coming back. Rosie: Why? Alex: Because I scared him off. Rosie: Why? Alex: Because I'm your best friend and I cared about you. Rosie: Why? Alex: Because I've nothing better to do Rosie: Why? Alex: Because it's the unfortunate way that my life turned out, whatever happened made me care about you and yours. Anyway it's great that I don't have to hide anymore. Rosie: Why? Alex: Because I've apologised Rosie: Why? Alex: Because I'm tired of not hearing from you and I miss you. Rosie: Why? Alex: Because (and I'm now saying this through incredibly gritted teeth) You. Are. My. Best. Friend. But I have to warn you, I'm not going to listen to any of your bitchy remarks about her this time round. Rosie: Why? Alex: Because I really like her Rosie and she makes me happy. I feel like the little boy working in Dad's office again. And just think, if it wasn't for you getting so drunk on your sixteenth birthday that you had to get your stomach pumped, we never would have been caught, we wouldn't have been suspended, and I wouldn't have been punished so severely by having to file every piece of paper in the world in Dad's office where I might add, I would never have met Bethany. So it's all down to you my dear friend! Rosie: OH WHYYYYYY??? Dear God, oh why?
That's half of the conversation. If you want to read more.... GET THE BOOK!! LOL Ciao! Disclaimer: I don't own the book, ROSIE DUNNE by CECELIA AHERN ---------------- Now playing: Anberlin - Time & Confusion via FoxyTunes
Many things have happened these past few days so here it goes:
Saturday, 8 Dec 2007 I went for my first ever Adventure Race - Synergy, organised by NYP's very own Adventure Club! It was fun till it lasts and it's the experience that counts! I did kayaking again... haven't done that after my OBS camp, ran around well I'd say more walking than running! LOL. But the best part I get to do archery!! I always wanted to try archery and I got my chance!! Imagine myself being Kagome or Ruriko! HAHA I know lame!
Sunday, 9 Dec 2007 My paternal cousins came over for a gathering and also for a birthday party. We planned to go to the park but it started raining on and off so it was just indoors all the way. It was fun and my mom and me managed to do the tiered-cupcake thing inspired by Martha Stewart! Really nice!!
Wednesday, 12 Dec 2007 Ok so today I was expecting to buy The Pierces CD but sadly Gramaphone do not sell them. Like the music that it's playing right now? It's The Pierces - Three Wishes. I knew about them when I saw one of the Gossip Girl's episodes: Hi, Society. And then Summit Entertainment announced that Robert Pattinson who plays Cedric Diggory in HP is playing Edward Cullen! I was like "ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME! YOU MUST BE JOKING!" I was disgusted when I saw his pic on IMDB... HE LOOKS SO DISHEVELLED! Plus, the sad thing is Gossip Girl won't be airing this week but next week instead! I was so looking forward to it but I guess they postpone it due to the strike I guess... Anyway... I'll be leaving on the 19th for Jakarta which they'll be showing GG then! SO SAD...
YIPEE!! I FINALLY GOT THE TOTE BAG THAT I WANTED!! THANK YOU CAFEPRESS.COM!! I'm so happy! I passed my practical! The bag came earlier than expected!! Adventure clinic was super fun and I cannot wait for this Saturday!! THRILLING!! LOL. And here are the pics of my cute, lil Lion!! Ain't that cute!! LOVE HIM TO BITS! HE'S SUCH A CUTE TAME CAT! LOL
It's Thanksgiving on Gossip Girl but it wasn't great as the one before. Last year, the three best friends had splendid fun before S decided to ditch B after sleeping with N. This year, after everybody had reconciled, it became from bad to worse. Dan invited the van der Woodsens over and it was a pretty bad idea. There was a cat fight between Dan's and Serena's mom just because of one man - Rufus Humphrey! Secondly, Natie and family... well his dad's problem with cocaine hasn't been resolved yet and to add more to the drama, his dad tried to commit suicide by chucking down pills with alcohol. Dumb really. Swallowing pills won't kill you... stabbing your heart does.
However the worst of it all is Blair. Fans of Gossip Girl know that she has an eating disorder from the very first book and it didn't shock me when they showed her bulimic side. I'm not thrilled that they finally show that she's bulimic but it's the way television shows are portrayed now. Most of them will showcase all the beautiful, rich girls have perfect lives but not GG. It really was a dramatic scene and I really pitied Blair. I've posted the scene of Blair's bulimic side and for those who would like to see the whole episode you can visit www.fanpop.com
