Anyway, just to update that. Au revoir
No. But some girls seem to
'Cause I love her
A close friend. Someone who knows how to have a good time and can take a joke
Great gal. Funny, knows how to have a good time. Excellent friend. Loyal.

But first, I want to publish something about Weii Syuen's gathering today (19th December 08). It was a blast! I definitely like tight knit parties better then the full blown everyone-is-invited kinda party. Mun Yee, Mayin, Jasmine, Sher Lynn and my girl; Liyana. We had a blast. First we watched the Love Guru. It was hilarious! I definitely recommend it. But it can be a bit vulgar so I don't recommend watching it with your younger siblings. Unless they're also teens or can get the joke.
Then we had a water balloon fight. But for some reason, it always bounced off everyone. It only burst on the ground so only the hems of our pants were wet. Funny. Since it was tiring to fill all the balloons, everyone just grabbed one, filled it up and let the pressure shoot it out like a water gun. Some used the hose and some used the bucket. Michael broke one of'em. The buckets that is. I was the first one to get wet. Courtesy of Michael.
Arriving right on cue, Weii Syuen's mom with pizza! I had two slices. One from each pizza. One was Hawaiian Chicken, the other was Beef Pepperoni. While eating, I managed to crack a few jokes. We all had a good time.
After the pizza, we decided to walk around the park. Well, more like parks actually. Liyana and I went barefoot as we were the only ones who wore shoes. Everyone else wore slippers. This was just as fun as the water fight. Weii Syuen had quite a time snapping pictures of us. While we were at one of the emptier playgrounds, we chatted. We were really chattering. It was fun. We left Weii Syuen's house around 5 and headed back around 7. Wow. That was a long time. After changing, Liyana and I 'talked' a bit. It was really REALLY GREAT to be able to see her again. God I missed her.
At around 7:15, I left and now here I am, typing this blog, wrapping it up.
Thanks Weii Syuen for the great hospitality and for knowing how to have fun. Merci tres beacoup

We'll start with my all time favorite; Corvette. Once again it's the Corvette on the top of my list. I'm telling you, the Corvette the sexiest car ever created. The first Corvette was produced way back in 1953. The car is definitely steeped in history. Since I'm on the topic of Corvettes, I might as well list down all my faves. Here they are;
1) '58 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster (C1)
2) '59 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Racer (C1)
3) 2008 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C6)
'C' indicates Corvette and the number means which generation are there. So C1 means generation 1 Corvette*
Gwyneth Paltrow drove this baby -- though very briefly in Iron Man.
3) Ferrari F430
I'm sorry but I don't know what movies this prancing pony starred in.
I think it's only wise that we move on to the next big automotive nation/area; Japan. Birthplace and home of the Samurai, sushi, and Anime. Here are -- in my opinion -- Japan's top cars.
1) Mazda RX-8This sexy geisha had a brief stint in The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift.
2) Honda Jazz/Fit
3) Honda S2000
This one I would LOVE to have as a car but it's a 'little' bit out of budget. Fine. WAY out of budget. But it's a coupé roadster! What do you expect? It's cheaper than the Porsche 911 Turbo convertible. But comparing those two is like apples and spinach.
*information courtesy of Wikipedia
Being an American at heart, I fall hard for the American Muscle. My first choice would be the Corvette; one of the sexiest cars ever to have been produced. A true American classic. I fell in love with this one when I saw it's predecessor; the C5. Prior to that, I had never even seen a Corvette. This one really rocked my world. But living in Malaysia for most of my life has left it's mark so not all the cars here are American.
The '67 Ford Mustang Fastback is simply drop-dead-gorgeous. What I wouldn't give to try and tame that Mustang.
*Sigh*. If only eh? If I had to pick one and one only, I'd choose the Corvette in a heartbeat. The rest are -- unfortunately -- not in order of preference. Only the Corvette. Sorry.

I'm considering either Puma, Fila or Skechers for my next sneakers. I'm hoping it won't fall apart either. Those Fila sneaks aren't that bad. Neither are the Skechers. I'm torn between going for the tennis shoe-style sneakers or for the hardy hiking boots... If I go for the hiking boots, I'll look for Colombia or something. Hm... I think it's time I had somewhat of a makeover. Tennis shoe-styled sneakers it is.
As for the sandals, that's just something I decided to add to the title.

Maya sat down facing the glass panes. Aaron merely stood in one of the corners. This made Maya feel guilty. As though she had been the cause of all this and she didn't even know what it is that she had caused. Aaron’s cold demeanor only made her feel worse. Soon Samantha and Jonathan stepped in and took their seats across from Maya. Only then did Aaron settle in beside Maya.
"Maya, do you know what happened tonight?" started Jonathan.
"I know what happened but I don’t know why it happened. Why are we here? Why are we hiding? How long has this been here? Who were the people at the dance? Why did Aaron rush me out of the school? What does Aaron and his friends have to do with this? Why were Luther and Anna waiting in -" and Jonathan held up his hand, asking Maya to stop.
"I know you have a million questions you want to ask and they will all be answered in due time. But first, your mom and I have something to tell you. We've been keeping it from you all this while,"
"Maya," this time Samantha spoke, "you’re a witch,"
"A witch? As in riding on a broomstick and casting spells kind of witch?" Maya asked, disbelieving.
"No, not casting spells and riding a broomstick but yes a witch. You can do virtually anything and at your will. Every witch has a different… how to say it? A gift so to speak; a particular power they are exceptionally skilled at. These are the earliest powers to surface but unfortunately, these powers also happen to be the latest to mature so you will have minimal control over them even though you can do everything else with ease. But once they mature, they will be your greatest power. That is why you look so attractive and share minimal attributes from either of us; you're a shape-shifter. But all your powers have their limits," paused Samantha.
"What about dad?"
"Only women inherit the power," spoke Jonathan softly; pleased that at least Maya was having hysterics.
"What about Aaron, Luther and Anna? What do they have to do with this?"
"I’ll tell you later," said Aaron; not looking at Maya and before Samantha or Jonathan could say anything. Maya was slightly offended but trusted that Aaron would tell her later. Maya was beginning to wonder whether Aaron asking her to the dance was his own decision or her parents way of keeping tabs.
"What about the people at school? Who were they? How come no one heard the helicopters fly overhead?" Maya asked.
"Because there weren’t any helicopters and those people are members of a secret organization. They believe that all Nightlings should stand up against the humans. You know; no more living in secrecy and fear kind of stuff," explained Samantha.
"Nightlings? What are those?" Maya enquired further, bewildered by the term.
"Creatures of the night; vampires, lycanthropes, witches and warlocks," explained Samantha. Maya noticed Aaron flinch at that last word.
"What about this hideout? When was it built? By who? And why?"
"It was built by those of the Nightlings who wish to keep our existence a secret. We are just as formidable a force as our opponent," explained Jonathan.
"Who are 'our opponents' exactly? I mean why did they come after me? If they were all about protecting the Nightlings and raging war against humans, why did they come after me like that? Couldn’t they have approached me more discreetly?" Maya asked; trying to clarify as to why they had stormed into the school in such a manner.
"Well, as to who they are, they call themselves the Night Warriors. Defenders of the secret world, so to speak. And as to why they did that… um… Samantha? Could you explain this to Maya?" Her dad’s cracking voice told Maya what she was about to hear wasn’t going to be pleasant and so she braced herself.
"Maya, their leader; Jean Dubois is a vampire. He has two vices; blood and women. He must’ve caught your scent and is after you," Samantha spoke, her voice cracking.
"What you saw tonight is just a fraction of what he is capable of. He has a whole army at his command. We’re not safe here. Sooner or later, he’ll find the hideout but by then, it would have been sealed off," she murmured.
To Maya’s surprise, Aaron’s car was in front of the school, not in the parking lot where they had parked. Then the doors opened and she heard two voices. One of them was very gruff; a man’s. The other wasn’t gruff and a little higher pitched; a girl’s. Aaron indicated for Maya to climb in the back seat while he climbed in the front passenger seat. The moment, the door was closed, Maya was thrown back as whoever the driver was; he or she had slammed on the gas, hard. Sitting beside her was one of the two girls from Aaron’s table. She was quite pretty; with wavy jet black hair. She was dressed in a pastel pink zip-up sweater, jeans and a pair of Puma tennis shoes. The other guy was at the wheel with Aaron riding shotgun.
“Are you OK? I’m Adrianna. Call me Anna,”
“Hi Anna, yeah, I’m fine. Umm… can you explain what just happened?”
“Actually, I’m not the best person to do so. We’re going to your mom’s house right now. I think they’re more… suited, to do the explaining,” and that’s when Maya noticed Aaron gazing through the rear-view mirror at Anna. His eyes were different now. They were still that luminous hazel glow but they seemed to be hiding something. That cold, angry front seemed more like a cover that an actual emotion.
Soon enough, they pulled over in front of Maya’s house. Jonathan was waiting by the door with a grave expression. Maya just kept her head down, unable to bring herself to face her dad. They followed Jonathan into the living room where Samantha was waiting. Maya and Aaron sat facing her parents. Anna and the other man stood guard by the doorway. Maya felt so alienated. As though she had missed something and couldn’t appreciate how they were feeling. She felt alone.
“Thanks for bringing her back so quickly, Aaron. You’re sure no one followed you, right?” spoke Jonathan suddenly; breaking the silence.
“Yes. I’m positive,” answered Aaron briskly.
“Good. Maya, could you come with us? We have something to show you. Aaron, Anna, Luther, please come too.” Maya was surprised to learn that her dad knew them.
“Dad,” she whispered.
“Not now, Maya,” he spoke quickly and softly but it still sounded like a command.
The group followed Jonathan to a bookshelf and Jonathan pulled at a book then slid it back into place. The books then fell apart and somehow seemed to blend into an archway, revealing a spiral staircase going downwards. The three guests followed Maya’s family down the staircase. As Luther stepped onto the staircase, the bookshelves closed back up.
The environment in the secret passageway was unprecedented. It wasn’t stone but rather a strange, smooth, white wall. It was also well lit with electric lights instead of the medieval torches. The staircase itself had an aluminum frame and the steps were made out of Plexiglas. Even though it was all white, it wasn’t glaring. At the bottom of the staircase sat quite an impressive facility.
“Welcome to our hideout,” spoke Jonathan is a soft voice but it seemed to reverberate gently so that everyone could hear it clearly.
“It’s not much but it’s quite the fortress. There are sleeping quarters, living quarters, an armory, a medical facility, teleconference room and even a lab. Our canteen is very well stocked. But it’s self-serve,”
“What are the protocols should the hideout be breached?” enquired Luther. He seemed more like a bodyguard than a family friend.
“There are five tunnels leading out of here. Three will take you to the surface at different points and two of them will take us to other hideouts. Let’s say this one were to be breached, it will be locked down. All tunnels leading out will be sealed on both ends. Only those with the access codes can get out,” Samantha explained this time. Luther merely nodded and fell quiet again. He’s eyes were much different from Aaron’s. They were a light grey and cold.
“Maya, Aaron, could you wait for us in the teleconference room?” spoke Samantha very gently.
“Thank you darling,”
It's a good book. A hard one to get hold of too. I went to two MPHs and both stated they were out of stock. I had to get it from Borders. The plot is nice. Deeper than Twilight. I kinda understand how Bella feels when Edward leaves her. The emptiness afterwards I mean.

One small snag; we forgot that Selangor was on leave today so we were greeted by an unsightly experience; rushing against the clock while facing jam after jam. This persisted even on the way home. Aargh! But upon arrival at Mid Valley, we were determined not to let it ruin our day.
1st stop of the day; brunch. Yes, we had to skip breakfast. We woke up a little later than planned so haste was necessary. We had brunch at Chilli's. I had their Lamb Shoulder and ordered their Pina Cholada. Yeehaw! After the meal, we chatted a bit. It's a family tradition. Somehow the topic of drawling came up and my bro and I started. My dad had a good laugh. Yeehaw!
Afterwards, we headed for MPH. To get there alone we had to face what was like a recreation of the traffic we just gone through on the road. Oh, and I wanted to get New Moon. BADLY. My earlier attempt at SACC was unsuccessful as they had run out of stock. Then I was hit with another surprise; the MPH Superstore in Mid Valley was out of stock! That is a first for my family. The series must be a HUGE hit. I have a feeling a majority of the fans are girls. Just a feeling, don't get touchy.
So my bro, my dad, and a disappointed me, left MPH and headed for Metrojaya to see their selection of school uniforms. Blagh. Poor selection. Dissatisfied, we browsed a bit more and then headed across to the Gardens. We shot straight to Robinsons since my dad had a *cough* platinum *cough* membership. I bought a pair of slacks there. There was a cool jacket from Blend there. Stone grey. Nice design. The thing costs RM329. T-T *sob* *sniff* *sniff*. Why must jackets be so expensive?
Anyway, afterwards we went to Borders upstairs. I was determined to get New Moon. *Laughing like someone who just lost it & twitching*. Thankfully they had it. Phew. Finally. My bro went looking for a book on drawing. He couldn't find it and so he bought only a sketchpad. The one he was using kept falling apart. Not surprising since it was an exam pad, not a sketchpad. He's not half-bad at it actually. Drawing I mean.
Then we headed back to Mid Valley's North Entrance by DOME to try and catch a cab. Eventually we did but after queueing up for like 1/2 an hour. Crazy. So many people were waiting there. When we finally got a cab, I dozed off on the way back to the service center. After picking up the CRV, I dozed off again.
It is now 23:39 and I am wrapping up this post. Au revoir

Back to Eid il Adha, my family wanted to go perform the Raya prayers at Masjid Putrajaya as we expected it to be at least emptier than in BJ. Previous years we missed it because the mosque in BJ was always overflowing. But this year, the cars were parked all the way down the Boulevard. It was crazy. People usually leave AFTER the khutbah (sermon) so when we saw people leaving, we naturally thought we missed altogether. Especially since listening to the khutbah is one of the rukun for the Raya prayers. Then we realized that people were skipping the khutbah. So we walked towards the mosque. But not before we watched a group of Arabs demonstrate how uncivilised they were.
Here's what happened; a Perdana saw an empty spot and wanted to take it. But the spot could barely fit a Kancil. Then as he was backing up, a Wira came up right behind him, honking. He wanted the spot too. A Saga then joined the action. And the Saga was BEHIND the Wira. Wonder whether their brain is the size of a peanut or a green pea. The Perdana gave up the spot to the Wira and the Wira couldn't get the right angle so he left too. Then the Saga squeezed himself in. It's amazing he didn't hit anything. I felt like laughing and pointing at their stupidity.
After that good laugh, we proceeded towards the mosque but by the time we arrived, it was too late so we went downstairs to have breakfast. The options there can be described in one word; pathetic. Seriously, there was nothing much there. The Chicken Rice cost RM7. What are they trying to do? Buy a Merc. Then again, that isn't exactly surprising. Nando's unfortunately wasn't open. Then there's a Mamak stall at the other end. We hate the ambience at this Mamak places so we went for the only alternative left; some stall called Kelly's something something. The price was OK but the serving was meagre. I think stray animals get a slightly better share. Blagh! The walk back to the car was more serene. Everyone had left so it wasn't so bad. More relaxing.
The journey to Banting was slightly more eventful. We blasted the rock songs! Woohoo! Van Halen, Whitesnake, Led Zeppelin & Rainbow. We weren't able to burn the other CDs so that had to do for the time being. It was good enough. A lot of "hero kampung" as my dad puts it. All the Gung Ho drivers.
The rest of the day spent in Banting was rather uneventful. Everyone was bored. Two of my youngest cousins fought over the TV. On the way back, my bro fell asleep. I dozed off a bit too.
All in all it's been a tiring day. I'm beat.
Sunday, December 7, 2008
At 6, Maya started to get ready. By 7:45 she was ready and went downstairs.
"Wow Maya. Every guy there is going to dump their girl right there on the spot," commented her dad.
At 8 sharp, the doorbell rang. Jonathan opened the door. Aaron was dressed in a black Armani all black tuxedo with an apple red satin tie. It was a very simple outfit but seemed to accentuate Aaron’s physique.
"Evening, sir; I’m here to bring Maya to the dance?" greeted Aaron.
"Evening, you must be Aaron. Nice wheels. Charger?" enquired Jonathan, noticing Aaron’s car.
"Yes, sir," chuckled Aaron.
"Oh, he IS dashing," whispered Samantha into her daughter’s ear,”
"Mom," she hissed.
"Well, stay safe dear. Aaron, I expect her back by 11,"
Aaron held the passenger open for Maya and then climbed in himself.
"You look stunning tonight. Did you pick that on personal initiative or was it on Sara’s advice?"
"Thanks. And it was more like I chose it and Sara agreed. Who were the other kids sitting at the table with you?"
"I see. Well, you have good tastes. Um… put it this way; our parents go way back. So in a way they’re almost like family friends,"
"Oh. Uh… how do you afford all this? I mean if you’re rich, why don’t you go to a private school or something?"
"Well, I’ve never liked the crowd at those private schools. They always seem snobbish. Besides, life at a public school is far more eventful. At least it is to me. So what about you Maya? Where did you come from?"
"Oh, I was from Richmond. My mom insisted we move here because I had somewhat of an argument with my ex,"
"Oh? What kind of argument?"
"I'd rather not talk about it,"
"I'm sorry if I made you uncomfortable,"
Soon, they were in the school compound and before Maya could react, Aaron was holding the door open for her.
"How did you do that?"
"Hold the door open?"
"I walked around the car and opened the door," answered Aaron sarcastically
"No, I mean how did you get to the door so quickly?"
"What do you mean? I jogged around the car if that's what you mean. Maybe you drifted off a bit," Aaron evaded and Maya decided to leave it at that.
When the band started to play Lost, Aaron leaned over to Maya.
"Would you care for a dance?"
Forcing herself to calm down, Maya took Aaron’s hand. As they got into position, Aaron could feel Maya’s heart thump rather quickly.
"Am I making you nervous or are you not that comfortable with dancing?"
"A bit of both but its been a while since I last danced," admitted Maya.
"Then let me lead you," and sure enough, they were doing perfectly fine.
YOU'RE AN EDWARD!
You are talented, knowledgeable and people are drawn to you. You like a good challenge and enjoy the company of a select few, but this is because you are picky and can be set in your ways. Sometimes you over react when things don’t go well, but your intentions aregood and you’re priority is protecting the ones that you love.
Friday, December 5, 2008
“Hi. You must be, Maya. I’m Aaron. I was wondering if you would come with me to the fall dance,”
“I’d love to but um... I don’t have anything to wear,” confessed Maya, blushing furiously.
“That can be fixed. So it’s a yes?”
“Yeah,” Maya sighed breathlessly.
As he left, Maya had to struggle to stop herself from hyperventilating. After she took her seat at the cafeteria, Sara suddenly spoke to her.
"I heard you need a dress for the dance. I was thinking why don’t we go tomorrow? I need one too"
"How did you know I was looking for a dress?" although Maya suspected she already knew.
"Aaron told you, didn't he?" blurted Maya.
"I still can’t believe he invited you. He’s quite the gentleman; covering for your dress and everything,"
"What?! So he asked you to pass him the bill or something?"
"Don't be so innocent, just take the offer. So are we going dress hunting tomorrow or what?"
"Fine but I’m driving. I’ll pick you up at 9 a.m. Good thing the dance is on Sunday,"
Back home, Maya went through the day with her mom.
"So can I go?" pleaded Maya.
"I don’t know. I mean after what happened with Jason and all… but only if you promise to stick to the crowds." Maya sealed the deal. The next morning Sara came over. She was driving a sporty 2 door convertible.
"My mom’s car; my brother borrowed mine," she said in response to Maya’s bewilderment.
"So where are we going?"
"I know this spot but it’s out of town. Is that OK with you?"
"Yeah, it’s fine,"
It was a riverside front and the view was unprecedented. They dress hunted for about an hour and after many tryouts, Maya settled for a turquoise Versace gown with spaghetti straps and halter neckline. The dress fell down to her ankles. The slim cut of the dress revealed her form flawlessly. Several store clerks actually stopped to stare. Before paying, Sara scooped up their gowns and headed for the counter. After paying, Sara handed Maya’s gown to her.
"Now it’s time to go hunt for the accessories,” and hooking her arm around Maya’s, Sara dragged her off. After another hour, Maya bought matching earrings, a bracelet, choker and white heels.
By the time they were done it was lunch so they headed to a nice little cafe for a bite. Maya ordered their Irish Lamb Stew, her favorite.
While they were walking back to Sara’s car, they bumped into Aaron. He was dressed in a white form-fitting polo and jeans. The shirt flaunted his lean body very well and it sent Maya’s heart beating erratically again. She was having trouble not to hyperventilate.
"Hi Maya; guess I’ll see you tomorrow night. Is 8 alright?"
"Why 8? Wait, you’re not picking me up are you?"
"Why wouldn't I? See you tomorrow night at 8 then," and he continued on, turning into a music store.
"How am I going to explain this to my mom?" exasperated Maya, giddy.
"Don’t worry, she’ll understand," reassured Sara.
Thursday, December 4, 2008
"Your dad tells me you're looking for your first car. Can I suggest a white '83 Mitsubishi Colt? Its a solid car. Being a Japanese car, its also easy on the gas. It isn't what you'd call powerful but its a great city slicker,"
"Mind if I take a look?"
"Not at all. Right this way,"
While Jonathan drove to work, Maya drove back home in her newly acquired Colt. On impulse, Maya decided to drive by the school. It was the last day of the Summer break so she might as well take a peek. The school complex was very nice. Double story, red brick and a rather spacious parking lot for the students.
The next morning, Maya was awakened by an alarm clock. Her mom must've put it there to make sure she woke up on time. Climbing out of bed, she headed for the bathroom. While brushing her teeth, she studied herself in the mirror. Maya was about 5' 3" and had flowy auburn hair. She had very full eyes and her eyes were a brilliant hazel color. She had always liked her eye color but wondered why she had them. Her mom was blue and her dad was green. Her face was actually very exqusite. Almost exotic. She had a very nice skin tone. She noticed that those from South-East Asia had this tone. She also had a very lean body. Many guys flipped over her but it still bugged her that she didn't have much of either of her parents' physical attributes. Almost zip. Sure it was a body she practically dreamed for but it was a bit unnerving. All in all, Maya was an extremely attractive girl.
Entering the student parking lot, she was relieved to see that most of the students drove something like hers, nothing fancy. But apparently one student liked to show off. Down the parking lot was racy red Dodge Charger SRT8. After collecting her schedule, she headed for her first class. For the first half of the day, no one really spoke to her. But at least she didn't have to introduce herself in front of the class.
While she was queuing up at the cafeteria, a girl approached her. The girl was quite pretty, blonde-haired but seemed sensible.
"You're the new girl right? Why don't you come sit with my us?"
"Um... Sure, why not?"
"Great, I'm Sara,"
The girl led Maya to a table where a group of students sat and started the introductions. There were 3 guys there and all seemed a little over-excited to see Maya. She noticed that there was a striking brunette at the other corner kind of glaring at her. Maybe one of the guys was her boyfriend. Maya just shrugged it off. While she was eating, Maya noticed a table at the other end of the cafeteria. Even though it was the other end, she had an uninterrupted view. They were two guys and two girls sitting there. All of them had jet black hair. They sat laughing and joking like everyone else. They seemed just like another group of friends but something about them seemed different. But before Maya could figure out what it was, the bell rang and everyone headed to their next class.
For the rest of the week, Maya forgot about the group from the other table. She was busy getting used to the tempo of the classes and trying to ignore the boys who were a little over-eager to introduce themselves. Until English on Thursday when Sara approached her.
"So, anyone asked you yet?"
"Huh? Asked me where? For what?"
"You don't know? You definitely need to pay closer attention to the notice boards. Fall dance is coming up. No one's asked you yet? Funny considering that many of the guys are going gaga over you,"
"They are not," hissed Maya.
"They are too. Anyway, now you know one of the reasons why they're a little over-eager to get to know you. Well, that, plus the fact that you're a total bombshell," and Sara walked away, giggling, before Maya could say anything else.
"You OK, Maya?" she heard her mom ask, waking her from her trance.
"Yeah, I'm fine, mom," replied Maya McKenzie.
Samantha McKenzie had adamantly decided moving upstate with her daughter after she intervened in an argument between Maya and Jason; Maya's now ex-boyfriend. They were moving into a nice little house on the outskirts of town. Camden was chosen so that she could open up her own legal practice to keep an eye out on Maya. Besides that, her ex-husband; Jonathan, lived down the road so he could help keep an eye on her as well. Jonathan had offered Samantha and Maya to move in with him but they declined.
After unloading, Samantha's colleague went to drop the U-Haul off. Jonathan had come over to help with the sorting. They were surprisingly quick and by dinner, had unpacked all their essentials and sorted their furniture. The family had a dark secret but Maya didn't know it. Yet.
Jonathan had already registered Maya at the local high school. Unfortunately, both Samantha and Jonathan would not be around enough to drop and pick up Maya from school so Jonathan agreed to get her a car despite Maya's protests.

Anyway, I'm curious to find out how the Twilight movie is. But weighing between the movie and New Moon; the 2nd book in the Twilight saga... I pick New Moon. Hopefully I can get it this weekend. Fingers crossed!
I don't really like modern rock bands. Not really sure why. I guess one reason could be because they have stood the test of time and can still be generally accepted. Besides, their guitar solos ROCK! I like the 80's and mid-70's best. AC/DC has been around since '75 and they just released their latest album -- Black Ice -- this year. They still rock! Imagine, some 60+ year old guys still being hailed as awesome.
I don't deny that modern bands completely suck. Some of their songs can be quite good. It's just a matter of preference so please, don't take it personally. Anyway, here are my fav bands
I couldn't find Rainbow's official website since they disbanded so the best I could do was to find their info on Wikipedia.
In a half-empty classroom,
With a few students,
And no teacher,
The classroom rings with voices of chatter, laughter and discussion.
And on this cold rainy morning,
Most boys sit at one table;
The back table,
Most girls sit at one table;
The middle table.
Yet there she sits,
Just diagonally across at the same table,
A fallen angel,
Oh, how my heart melts,
On this cold rainy morning.
While she sits there,
I sit across,
Writing this poem,
Drawing inspiration from the little community that is our class,
On this cold, rainy morning.
Last night my brother started to read the book Twilight.I don't know when he will finish it. We can only pray that he will. He seems to like it. Look out girls; you might have the real thing coming. Unfortunately he is 6 years younger than you gals. Sorry.
*Sigh*. Curious and nervous to see what next year has in store for us. Hopefully another exciting year. Or at least an interesting one.
I'm getting New Moon this weekend! Yeehaw! Fingers crossed!
That's all for now though I'm probably gonna publish another post today. We'll see.
Tuesday, December 2, 2008
*Sigh*. There really is nothing to do now. Maybe I'll get back to my attempts at writing a book. I want a laptop! That way I can do whatever I want without my bro bugging me and/or trying to read over my shoulder 24/7. If I get a laptop, I'm clearing out the favorites on my user. That way, my bro can't trace my blog. He's not that tech savvy. Lazy too. Not to forget cocky. Serve him right for getting lectured -- literally -- to tears by my dad.
Anyway, today's been a tough day. My bro is not helpful (never has been) and to aggravate things, I have a cold. Perfect. Just perfect. Can my day get any better? Oh wait, it just did; today happens to be one of the MOST important days on my calendar. And I forgot! WTF man?! How could I have forgotten?! Why today? Of all days? AAARGH!!!
I feel like Edward. I'm never upset at her. Always at myself...
Gah! Why must the school holidays be such a drag?! There's very little to do as it but with the restrictions I face, my options of activities either completely go out or become repetitious like hell... I want to go shopping now that the Sale has started! But my dad says to wait till my mom gets back. There's nothing to do! I'm beginning to lapse into either cabin fever or the winter blues. But it doesn't snow in Malaysia. Aaargh! I'm going nuts! I want to buy New Moon! I can only hope my dad will say yes...
There are very few factors keeping me within the boundaries of sanity. But I think the main reason is my girl. Chatting with her really helps. I'm not saying I'm going overboard here but you know how it is. For those who have Twilight, the best way I can describe it is how Edward feels whenever he has to leave Bella's side. The Michael Bublé songs also keep me calm. I think because it reminds me of her as well. See, told you she was the main reason.
I feel much better but I'm still bored so I think I'll put forth a questionnaire or something later.

I'm interested to buy the next book in the Twilight saga; New Moon but I'm not sure my dad would agree to buying 3 books in ONE school holiday... Oh well, no harm trying eh?
Au revoir, that's all for now. Merci tres beaucoup.
We were planning to go out tomorrow but we had to cancel it due to a number of reasons. None of which I will tell. *Sigh*. I can hardly be myself without her. I feel like Edward whenever he is away from his Bella...
Speaking of Edward, we seem to share some similarities. We both seem to have that romantic soul somehow. Creepy, yet interesting... Then there's how Edward always seems to pop up. Weird, I know but everyone seems to be surprised that I can do that. Well, I don't glitter in the sunlight so I don't think I'm a vampire. I don't need to hunt either like the Cullens. But I'm not so sure...
Anyway, that's all for now. *Sigh*. So bored and missing her...
Au revoir, merci tres beaucoup
