Terrible! That’s What It Was.

There are many things that can frustrate me and drive me up the wall. One of it is an online game that my husband introduced me to. Often, I’d find my character being killed off over and over again, despite the endless streams of health and mana potions. I end up telling myself that if…

Of Political Shootouts and Countless Betrayals.

I don’t often Netflix and chill, but when I do, I do it for five hours straight. Nah, not really. I kind of did it for the entire day. The whole of a Saturday of one particular weekend. To be honest, I rarely watch anything on Netflix unless it well and truly catches my eye….

A Timeless Tale of Beauty and Nostalgia.

Recently in Malaysia, the movie Beauty and the Beast had garnered negative attention when the Censorship Board spotted what they interpreted as a gay moment during the song and dance between the pompous Gaston, his sidekick LeFou and the townspeople. Apparently said “gay moment” occurred when LeFou lifted up his shirt to show the love bite…

Definitely #firstworldproblems.

The arrival of new smartphone models and the creation of new mobile phone gaming applications are things we cannot avoid. It happens everyday, no matter where we go, whether we like it or want to be involved or not. You can bluff yourself and say that you’re not interested. You can tell the world that…

Movie Review: Captain America – Civil War.

I know the poster says that May 6 is the official release date for the movie, somehow, it is already out here in Malaysia, and I saw it last night. Also, since many of you may not have seen it yet, I won’t be leaving spoilers in my review. I just want to say how…

Whose Side Are You On? Batman or Superman?

Upon discovering the release and airing dates of the Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice movie last year, all I’ve done was wait patiently for it to hit the big screens in Malaysia. I’ve always loved DC Comics (and Marvel too) and the movie only served to crank up my curiosity as to who would…

The Idle Mind is Talking.

Do you know what happens when you suddenly stop being busy and productive? Your mind stops being the same. Your body is still active because of the certain activities that require you to be up and about, but your mind becomes idle and you end up shooting blanks. If you’re like me, retrenched and unemployed…

Deadpool; No Holds Barred.

There are many reasons why Malaysians don’t trust nor like our own Censorship Board because they have a habit of censoring and removing the best parts from movies that are deemed to be too offensive for movie-goers, especially those who are not of age. More often than not, these could be the same reasons why…

Drama Kings and Queens.

Growing up, I never had the opportunity to watch many television series, despite some of them winning a number of Golden Globes and Oscar awards. I had a curfew to adhere to when I was growing up. Completion of school work and assignments at a certain time, helping out with household chores at a particular…

What is: MMO vs. MMORPG?

I’ll be honest with you. After putting in as many job applications as I could, I sat back and wondered what else could I do. Sure, I have also submitted a request to become a guest contributor on an online blog community (minus the pay because the community was new and they are still hiring…

Walking Down “Memory” Lane.

Drag and Drop Dragging and dropping files into a tiny piece of technology is often a pain in the ass to me because of the amount of storage that will eventually run out when too many things have been put into it. I have various storage devices ranging from 16MB to 128GB, with each and…

British Superstars Dead at 69.

When I finally heard the news… I thought, what are the odds? Two of the greatest superstars dead at 69 years old, both from cancer. David Bowie succumbed to liver cancer at 69 years old. Alan Rickman succumbed to cancer, also at 69 years old. David Bowie, as Ziggy Stardust: The Man and the Musician….

Genting Highlands for Everyone!

My husband and I were back in Genting Highlands last Thursday, but not for gambling reasons. We don’t gamble. I’ve never been to the casino in Genting Highlands, to be honest. And I don’t plan to either. I have been to the casino in the Central Business District of Brisbane, however, and after seeing how…

Hit Me, Britney, One More Time!

Once upon a time, when the Internet was new on everyone’s box-shaped computer. When songs contained meaningful lyrics, when singers and performers were not as skimpily-dressed and shouting out sex-heavy, bruised and battered lines. Also, once upon a time when Britney Spears was the darling of MTV, and everyone’s fantasy. Every guy wanted to be…

Beam Me Up, Scotty!

I regularly listen to LiteFM, a local radio channel in Malaysia, and Taylor Swift often pops up with her catchy pop tunes, with ‘Wildest Dreams’ and ‘Style’ being two of her latest numbers to be aired on the radio. I am quite taken with both songs, so I decided to watch the official music videos…

Oh, ‘APP’ solutely!

Who would have thought that Waze could help so many drivers today, to locate their destinations and avoiding as much traffic congestion as possible. Whoever came up with the idea for Waze was one helluva genius (geniuses, ‘app’ arently, because it was created by Israeli trio Uri Levine, software engineer Ehud Shabtai, and Amir Shinar)!…

Tickling His Fancy.

My cat is a male but he’s still four months old. He’s not small anymore, and he’s growing up fast. Which means his appetite is growing too. And so are his energy and capability to last throughout the day. At first, my husband and I were unable to provide proper cat toys for him so…

Petr Cech-s in for Arsenal.

Every tabloid, every newspaper, every form of media is singing the praises for Petr Cech, former Chelsea-turned-Arsenal goalkeeper. The 33 years old Czech Republic shot-stopper agreed to a long-term move to the Emirates Stadium from Stamford Bridge for an undisclosed fee. Rumour has it that the move was so he could be closer to his…

Swapping Mix Tapes for Fanfiction.

It was a bookish weekend for me two days ago, beginning with a one-night sleepover with my sister at my condo and ending with the last page of ‘Eleanor & Park‘. I have my comments about the book, which I will share in awhile. Before I went to bed, I placed my Paris bookmark into…

EPL 2015: Arsenal vs Crystal Palace.

Arsenal’s full-time match results of 2-1 over Crystal Palace imitates a similar situation back in February 2015, when the same 2-1 results catapulted them to third place in last season’s Premier League match. The goalscorer was the same, one and only, Olivier Giroud. In February 2015, Santi Cazorla was the second goalscorer. This time around,…

Plush Booty and No Cootie. (DOOF Malaysia, 2012)

It was a bed of brightly coloured plush and poofy beanbags that covered the dull brown wooden flooring in the training room of The Edge Malaysia. The temptation to sink into a beanbag, sigh and close your eyes for just a few minutes was very strong. Just imagine disappearing from your work station for the…

EPL 2015: First Match Flop.

I am honestly displeased and disappointed when the full-time whistle was blown and the score remained at 2-0 in the favour of West Ham United. I don’t hate West Ham for defeating Arsenal. They played well, and they played with such fervour and ferociousness that they had every right and reason to win. Arsenal, on…

The Boy Behind ‘Budapest’.

When I first heard the song ‘Budapest‘ aired on public radio, I thought, wow, this must be a black singer or a jazz specialist. Not wanting to rouse the racial police but I’ve heard my share of blues or jazz singers with this kind of deep, soulful voice. And it was sung with what seemed…

A Hot and Spicy Affair

Copa American 2015: Chile vs. Argentina It was definitely a Chilean affair. Chile held on for dear life throughout the entire competition right until the final match against Argentina. They were probably the least expected country to win the cup, especially since Argentina had always been favourites to lift the trophy. But Chile “made history…
