After the last episode of GG aired, I suddenly became withdrawn and restless every Tuesday nights cos that's the time where I would on my computer and watch new episodes of GG. Fortunately, CW (the channel where they aired GG in the States) featured a new segement of Gossip Girl called "Gossip Girl Revealed". Many thought that they'll be revealing who is Gossip Girl but they were mistaken. It's just a show where the casts talk about fashion, their characters and even gave the fans never before seen deleted scenes and of course bloopers!
I'm sorry to say that I can't put all videos here as there are 13 videos altogether so you'll have to go to YouTube and type "Gossip Girl Revealed". You'll find many links to the various videos. Furthermore enjoy the video below and watch the bloopers from the set of Gossip Girl! Have fun watching!
I'm really disgusted and shocked with Singaporeans nowadays. Shows and articles might have talked about kiasu singaporeans 'chopping' their tables with tissue papers and I didn't even care... well cause I didn't experience it once. But the day when I went out for lunch with my parents, I was totally disgusted with it. We Singaporeans actually 'chop' tables with tissue papers? OMG!! I was shaking my head and laughing to myself when I saw tissue papers scrambled all around the unoccupied tables!
Being that my dad and I don't believe in all this tissue paper crap, we usually book our table with either of my family members sitting down at the table and wait for our turn to buy our food. It was only three of us that day. My dad, mom and me. All the corner tables which seats 4 people were occupied so all that's left were conjoined tables which my mom finds it uncomfortable as she had trouble leaving the table if she wasn't seating at the corner seat. It was really cramped actually so we had to find a corner seat for my mom. So when my mom and I were queuing up for food, my dad shifted tables to a corner one. And lo and behold, someone came up to my dad and told him that the table was booked. My dad looked at the lady and asked her how can that be and as you might guess... she told him that she booked the table with tissue papers. My dad looked perplexed and went to my mom who was queuing. Seeing that there was an empty corner table, I rushed towards it and planted my ass down instead of 'chopping' pieces of tissue packets on the table.
I can't believe why people are too lazy to sit their asses down and just wait for their turn to buy their food? Or another solution, just ask your kind friend to buy you the food. Wouldn't that be better?
Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.
Rule 1:Life is not fair - get used to it! Rule 2:The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself. Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both. Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. Rule 5 :Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity. Rule 6 :If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them. Rule 7 :Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room. Rule 8 : Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life. Rule 9 : Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time. Rule 10 : Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. Rule 11 : Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one
It was such a drastic news when I heard Gossip Girl will be showing only 13 episodes and the day has finally come to watch the end. Rumours were heard that it may continue after the end of the writer's strike... but fates may change.
The 13th and last episode was the finale which I think was incredibly well done... though I hate the scenes where Rufus and his multiple dates. I want more of Blair and Serena!! It was nice to see more of Dan and Serena and their everlasting relationship. They finally said their I LOVE YOU'S! =)
However, the turning point of this episode was Blair. I really pitied her when everybody "ditched" her, even Nate after he got the message that Blair cheated him with Chuck. But the only person who stood by her and became her leaning shoulder was none other than Serena van der Woodsen. The love and a presence of a best friend can do wonders. What if Blair did took the helicopter to JFK and left for France? Would that be starting it all over again? Blair leaving Serena without saying goodbye and leaving people wondering why?
But with the love and support coming from a best friend, Blair did stayed and I loved the part where Serena said "I'll fight with you". Having a best friend like that to fight along with you even after all the scandal that you had done shows that Serena is a very true friend and I really respect her for that.
So... in all, Episode 13 ended with a great, big bang! It might be that there will be more cause Little Jenny is the new It Girl?? Hmmm... I wonder... Let's hope and pray that Gossip Girl will continue.
Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind ? Should old acquaintance be forgot, and auld lang syne ?
For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne, we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet, for auld lang syne.
And surely you’ll buy your pint cup ! And surely I’ll buy mine ! And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet, for auld lang syne
