My Mid-Sem Break

A week has gone by since the start of the mid-sem break.. and so far it's been a rather good week.

For once, by pretending that the impossibly high stack of essays-that-urgently-need-to-be-marked don't exist, I've managed to do some thesis-ing - read a handful of books.. sorted out the newspapers for further analysis.. and fingers crossed, will actually put in some real word count soon. =)

Awww.. who am I kidding? No way I'm gonna get any writing done. Starting tomorrow I will need to mark them demn papers first.. >.<

But it's not all sad and sad. Managed to squeeze in two (more recent) movies:

1. Up

The start of the sweetest and cutest love story

Kids, do NOT try this at home

I adore Up. It is soooooo amazingly sweet and gorgeous and the old man kinda reminds me of Harrison Ford.. must be the square jaw. lolx

I am also totally in love with the opening short animation of how babies are made. It is too delightful for words. If you hadn't seen it, you HAVE TO. By far my most fave Disney-Pixar production.

Ah, Disney, you've redeemed yourself as a wholesome teary-eyed spot of goodness. FINALLY.

2. Generation Fame

A remake loosely based on the 1980 film.. more drama than High School Musical.. better singing.. much better dancing, and with a waaaaay better looking cast. XD On the whole it's pretty decent watching.. but be prepared for lots of untied loose ends and random/abrupt endings.. what else do you expect for a movie that attempts to squeeze four-years of "life" into 102 minutes?

Movies aside, I also found time to bake my first ever carrot cake. Although the top burned a bit.. at least it looks AND taste like carrot cake.. so am pretty pleased with myself ^o^

Finally, a more updated picture of sweet+cute Moka. Not recent anymore - it was taken 8 Sept, 2009, but at least it's newer than the other ones.

It's 12.25am here. Time for bed!

285 Days Left

Go forth here and procrastinate! XD

These Days...

... are kind of busy
juggling between self and others
switching between the different
hats. and thus, losing oneself
in the crowd

... are kind of angry
losing patience over every
stupid little thing. don't
speak to me unless you have
something good to say

... are kind of lonely
the world seems closer yet
the people more distant. the
media breeds distrust and
more doors are closed

... are kind of violent
people are talking so much
they've forgotten to listen
and missed the most important
lesson of all: humility

... are kind of forgetful
but one must start somewhere
sometime, wishing for change
learning from mistakes. lest the
past haunts your tomorrow

300 days now

If you had been following my PhD complaints progress, you would know one month ago, on Aug 2, I had 333 days left til my thesis submission deadline. Well, ladies and gentlemen, the ONLY, and I emphasise ONLY task successfully completed in the past 31 days is..

drumrolls please!

Moka can now shake paw/hand on command. =D

So much for to-do-lists though!

Bloody Meat

This post may offend. You have been warned. Scroll down for the rest.

First I take you home
then I let you eat
After which I sever off your head
and drag it through the streets

When the people ask, oh,
what happened to all the meat?
I'll tell them it's processed
into tiny little treats

Cooking both your insides and
outsides was no simple feat
Luckily you had no brain
and only two left feet

So that saved me some time
oh yes indeed, you did
Otherwise my lateness will
put me in the hot seat!

Off to Ke*cing, off to Shah Dalam
wherever the Big One leads
Together we shall break fast
and dine on bloody meat!
