Eight more months to go and the Twilight movie will be completed. Set to be released during the Christmas season, it'll be a big hit in the cinemas and hopefully worldwide too. The casts are now shooting in Kalama, Washington and the progress is getting really good!! However there are still haters out there who still don't like the choice of actors and I'll tell them you're not a true fan and you have no sympathy for the actors' feelings. IF you're true "Twi-hards" you'll support whoever will be playing the characters. Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) has been given the cold reaction from alot of haters when he was first casted but to me and the rest of supporters, he is the PERFECT Edward. Just like Taylor Lautner playing Jacob Black. I was awed when I saw this video called The Twilight Project and it's from fans from all over the world supporting the TWILIGHT CASTS 100%! Love the video!
I cannot stop spending!! Even if it's the basic stuff! Ok... so today I went to White Sands to buy my ingredients for my Blondies and I already planned to buy hair conditioner from Watsons and make-up here and there for tomorrow's dinner. And I was gobsmacked when I found out that everything that I bought costs $30 over!! Sometimes discount sales can be very, very and I mean very deceiving! 20% of everything! And here I thought Silkygirl's cheap!!
Ok... maybe it's partially my fault. I should have just bought one eyeshadow rather than two and just buy one lip gloss instead of a lipstick and lip gloss together. But come to think of it, all these things might be useful in the future! It's like an investment... like how Becky Bloomwood thinks! My gosh... I cannot be a shopaholic!!
Ok... I wanted to list down the things that I've bought but I lost the receipt (not on purpose!!) but I know that the most expensive was the lip gloss but it was worth it!! It looks so good on me!!
Okay... I should spending! ANYWAY, I've reserved $50 to buy a Taylor Swift album that my new-found friend whom I met from FRIENDSTER and is a HILARY DUFF fan reserved for me from HMV! Tomorrow I have a budget of less than $50/-!!!
Ok... this post is a reply to one of the bloggers who tagged my blog. Well... at first I wasn't really sure about Robert playing Edward but it got to me after I saw these Cullen pictures (below). He might not be the perfect Edward that you have in mind but I bet he can play the part very well.
AND Stephenie herself has said that Robert is the perfect Edward. Below is the video from her German tour and the question to her was about the casts in Twilight movie. She was happy with them especially Robert Pattinson himself.
Why don't you try to accept Robert and maybe he will play a really good Edward. Although he doesn't have the looks like Gaspard Ulliel, it's how he portrays the character well that counts. I really wish him all the best and he really will be the perfect Edward Cullen.
I have a feeling I spent more than what I should have but most of the things that I bought are reasonable though. I met up with my aunt for lunch today and we ate at Sakura's in Far East Plaza. I planned to go to my grandmom's after lunch but my aunt suggested why don't I walk around Orchard and wait for her till she finish at 4.30 so we can go back home together. Agreeable, we walk back to where we met and went on our separate ways.
So my first shopping trip was in Borders at Wheelock. I wanted to search for Libba Bray's The Sweet Far Thing for my cuzz Anisa but it wasn't there. Instead, I bought Jodi Picoult's new book - Change of Heart which was unexpected. Anyway, I've already plan on what to buy: going out shoes, a bag but I bought more than what I wanted.
My spending kinda remind me of Becky Bloomwood from Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series. But I'm not that bad as her... haha. So after going to Borders, I went to Wisma Atria's Charles & Keith whose having a sale but the shoes... I don't like. Then went to Forever 21... wanted to buy some tops but over my budget of $50. Too much. New shoes and bag at the back of my mind, I went to Pretty Fit but the shoes are just too ex and anyway, they don't have any of my sizes... too bad. Quite disappointed, went to Hula % Co and OMG!! They have really, really good tops. I browsed through the racks and saw one that caught my eye! It was B-E-A-UTIFUL!! I MUST GET IT... though hesitant at first, I put it back to its rack but a few white girls came in and one of them was also browsing the same rack as me... so I thought to myself, better get it now or they'll take it! It was like a matter of live or die situation! Come to think of it... I'm a bit like Becky Bloomwood! Gosh! I can't believe it... it was like her Denny and George scarf but it wasn't on sale though. Anyway, happy I've got 2 carriers... one from Cotton Up... bought 2 long sleeve t-shirts there. 2 for $30!! It's a bargain!!
Still, my mind on shoes and bag, went to Takashimaya and I was really shocked that Accecorize is expensive here!! UK must be cheap then. I didn't manage to find my things so I thought of going to Tangs since it was almost 4. When I went to Tangs it was heaven!! I finally found my shoes and it only cost $19.90!! Super-glad, I bought it and well finished my shopping for the day!
However, it kinda suck shopping on your own cos I don't have advice from anybody about my shoes but I really love the ones that I bought! Even my mom says it has a nice cut!! Yay for me!!
Okay... so I thought of calculating my whole expenditure of the day.
Book from Borders............ $22.45 (after 10% cos I'm a member) 2 Cotton Up t-shirts......... $30 (bargain!!) Hula & Co top................ $36.90 (Ok... expensive but I have to have it!) Shoes from TANGS............. $19.90 (total bargain) TOTAL EXPENDITURE............ $109.25 (OMG!!!!)
HOLY CRAP!! THAT'S ONE DAY!! DAMN I SHOULD STOP SPENDING SO MUCH!! DAMN IT! DAMN IT! I HAVE TO HAVE A BUDGET!! Ok from now I on, I promise to write down all my expenditure and MUST ENSURE THAT I HAVE IT BELOW $100 OR EVEN BETTER BELOW $50!!
Alright... I can do it! I can't be the next Becky Bloomwood! I have to be thrifty! I'll try my very best and will write down my expenditure and maintain by budget! GOOD LUCK TO ME!!
Today I felt really weird but really motivated at the same time! It was like a craving... a must-do for me! I was watching Debbie Travis Face-lift when I started to have this craving for chocolates. So I went to the fridge browsing through the junk and decided to take one piece of eclaire with hazelnut candy when I saw Hershey's Real Semi-Sweet Mini Choc Chips. It's for baking but I don't mind. Tastes better than milk chocolate anyway. So I was nibbling a few bits when I turned to the back and saw some recipes and one of them caught my eye. It was Mini-Choc Blondies recipe and looked through the ingredients and thought to myself, maybe I should make these.
Anyway, I was dieing to make something this morning after re-reading The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella yesterday. I wanted to bake either a Pavlova or a layered sponge meringue cake, both Nigella Lawson recipes but I had to drop by the supermarket to get the ingredients. Thank god the Blondies recipe was really simple - just plain flour, milk, butter, eggs, brown sugar and lots of choc. chips!!
Made the batter and everything and in the middle, I remembered my cousin, Jahiza actually superlatived me in Facebook, nominating me to be the next Martha Stewart and I just blanched at the thought. Yup.. I like to cook and bake but I'm not a domestic goddess like both Nigella and Martha... I don't really like doing housework. Oops, slipped that out.. sorry hehe.
I thought it took 2 hours for me to finish but only a mere half an hour or so! Didn't know it's be that simple and the results turned out to be really, really good! It goes really good with black coffee but too bad I can't drink coffee. Has a different side effect for me actually... I'd sleep rather than being awake! My mom and dad were really impressed with my success and I thought I'd bring it over to my grandma's house tomorrow and let my cousins try... see what they think.
Okay... signing off soon... trying to watch Samantha Who?.. Ciao!
I was listening to my songs in my Zen when a particular song hit me. I've listened to it a few times before but it was only yesterday that I listened intently to the lyrics. It was beautifully written yet the message was meaningful but true. Take a listen to it and read the lyrics... you'd understand.
"WASTED" by CARTEL
It's 2:45, the baby takes his first breath The mother never knew he only had a few left and The father gets a call in the middle of the night His breath gets short and his chest gets tight
But he's 16, and he's driving too fast Takes a turn to the left, it would be his last Nobody knows what happens if he turns to the right Nobody in the car would've died that night
But he's 32 and invincible. The cancer he had it was visceral He never saw it coming...thought he had his whole life Sick in the morning and he died in the night.
We're all so... We're on the run. We're all, we're all We're wasted, no no no We're all wasted We're wasted, no no We're all wasted
7 years old, got his bat in his hand He’s looking for his father and he doesn't understand 'Cause dad's too busy, got some deals on the way His son sits alone as the children play
And he's 18 he couldn't wait to move out His parents wonder what all the rush is about They never bothered with his dreams Only thinking of theirs. Wonders why he doesn't call and why he doesn't care
But he's 32 and invincible With everything he is based on principle He never had a truly happy moment in his life He didn't want the kids and he didn't want his wife.
We're wasted, no no no We're all wasted We're wasted, no no We're all wasted We're wasted We're all wasted We're all wasted, no no We're all wasted
23 now got his life in his hands He's looking all around and he doesn't understand 'Cause life's too busy, things get in the way We all feel alone every single day
And I'm 18 couldn't wait to move out It's been 5 years and now I'm starting to doubt... Whether all my dreams are just aimless stares Looking off to someplace that isn’t there
When I'm 32 will I be miserable? With everything around based on principle Will I have a clue, oh wouldn't it be nice to never be alone in this wasted life.
We're wasted, no no no We're all wasted We're wasted, no no We're all wasted We're wasted We're all wasted We're all wasted, no no We're all wasted.
