2010 REVISITED

Honestly..
i cant think of anything accomplished in 2010 that resembles anything along the lines of "proud" and "worthwhile" at this point.

I think from the beginning i had already set my sights on making 2010 a doomed year of recuperation and restoration.

Oversplurged in 2009 so naturally 2010 was the recharge year.

But the little little joys that creeped in where very much welcomed.

i mean

I worked alot i guess.
Handled more shoots than i usually did.


Played more songs.
Jammed some jams.


Had my share of faktapshit.

Experienced the French invasion.



The German white boi's departure: (not sure if this qualifies as a "joy".)


(ok fine it does! haha)

Spent time with my hordes of adoring fans.



but overall nothing as epic as Halfwayroundtheworld Euro trips or Halfwayupthesky mountain climbs.

ANYWAY...

2010 LOVES:

KICK ASS

TANGLED / RAPUNZEL

SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON

BURIED

THE SOCIAL NETWORK


WHIP IT (technically 2009 movie but only saw it in 2010)



ZOMBIELAND (also 2009 movie but bloody hell it dserves to be in this list!)


2010. Bah. Watever.
Faster come la 2011.

MY CHRISTMAS POEM

I am feeling quaintly artsy and expressively expressive.
Therefore, i shall lament my recent Christmas escapade in the form of self-indulgent poetry.

Ambik ni:

As the joyous end of 2010 comes near,
Wallets and bank accounts sigh in fear,
The uproarious and yuletide season of giving,
Descents upon our daily living.

Presents and trees and decorations and lights,
Are indeed the things i cannot lose in sight,
But this year i decided to spread more cheer,
Cuz' God knows it's been a bitter year.
(paycheck conflicts, workspace antics, management politics and laziness tactics)

I turn my head, i grip my fist, i push my posture high,
I will not, cannot, stand another moment in depression plight,
So i declare emotional ignorance and pick my next procession,
And i approach dear Swen in a last bid for redemption,
"Oh please oh please let me join your cause"
"I want to feel loved instead of being perved".

"Come to church this Friday! we'll fix you up with something you can harold"
Swen pats my shoulder as she invites me for a plan to behold.
"It'll be fun it'll be swell you'll like it i promise u well
You'll prance and pout till you're smillin as hell".

With that, i found myself performing the deed,
Of donning a religious coat of festivity in need.
It wasnt easy i have to say,
It wasnt a cuppa tea, to my dismay.

There were steps to remember,
Vocal prowess to conjure,
A hipload of sign language to decipher,
But alas it was fun and thrilling and lots of carpooling
- Embracing the Caroling.



We tackled a sign language song,
That sent me on a confusion throng,
We suited up in pitch black,
Though some would frown and say Frak.

My commitment was limited,
As regretful as admitted,
But i pray i did not offend the many,
Whom i thought were downright sweet as honey.



So i salute the Anglican church which took me in,
For a short while of cheer and grin.
To Swen, Andrea, and Qian,
Thank u for not letting my December become "Sien".

Merry Christmas!

JINGLE BUSH JINGLE BUSH

Last year I was running on empty fuel from post-Euro splurge, so naturally, the Christmas rush was way out of my financial league to enjoy in all its glory.

The good thing is, by the end of last year i managed to snag myself 2 awesomely cheap post-xmas deals on 6feet xmas trees from IKEA and been keepin 'em thrown tucked neatly in the storeroom.

Until now.





check out the xmas forest growing in our living quarters.




woots.
just wait till we light it up.

We're sprouting xmas tress all over the rainbow.

Take a whiff of that artificial pine.
oh yeah.
u know u love it.

i know that Christmas isnt about gifts and shopping and pretty decos...
but who am i kidding?

It's sealed in my ignorant head that Christmas without a tree and lights and gifts, is not christmas at all.

i need my dose of visual stimuli to keep my festive spirits up.
if not i'd just hermit myself in my lil depressing corner and hurl anti-commercialism remarks at all the SALE SALE SALE signs and throw rotten eggs at Santa wannabe impostors.

on that note... i think Christmas would never be Christmas without the abundanceness of year-end workshit datelines, rushed projects and cursed ideas.

Some so treacherous and unforgiving that one is forced to surrender one's dignity to cater to the success of an ideas.




Project produced by the vastly larger than life MizzKoh.

(isnt the intern just smokin'?)


Happy Decking the Halls.

SCOTT PILGRIMISATION

SCOTT PILGRIM had so many LOL moments that flash by too quickly i thank god i have the downloaded pirated version that allows me the privilege of rewinding, pausing and playing at my own slowmo-tortoise pace.



and because weight has been a hot topic of discussion lately for me and every known female around me, every time i see that Julia Roberts movie poster around, i see THIS:



ANYWAY, because i have not done any form of self-indulgent movie critiquing in the past several (was it?) months, i will allow myself to indulge in some now.

SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD rocked my beat-em-up fetish socks to the bone.


i loved almost every scene.
Every fast-cut edit.
Every WTF random liner.
Every super canggified VS battle.
Music to my ears. Candy to my eyes. Orgasm to my soul.

It aint exactly deep but i thoroughly enjoyed it.

8.5/10 Evil Exes



HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 1


Nope.
Didn't really enjoy it.
Yawnsome.
Dobbie's death wasn't played to the tear-jerking emo state i was in when i was reading the book.

Draggy throughout most of the film.

Meh.

4/10 Avada Kedavras


THE SOCIAL NETWORK


Good movie.
Enjoyed it from start to finish aka did NOT doze off like i usually do.
Good script.

I think the movie works cuz there is an instant connection with the viewers already considering how facebook is the main subject of the movie.

Goodstuff.

7/10 Friend Requests.



LET ME IN



Not nearly as good as the original master piece but passable.
Not bad.
Pool scene at the end absolutely cannot beat the impact of the original movie.

6/10 Buckets of Fresh Blood

SHOTS FROM SHOOTS

More shots of pain from work hell.











checkout my director-face mode.
donts i look diabolically professional?









Stress.
But fun.

Could not have done it without the very experienced people around coaxing me to pay attention to the minor annoying details that one shouldnt miss-out.
i am nothing la really. Would be an epic fail without these people around me.

The completed promo should be on air by now.
if you actually watch normal free earthling TV la i mean.

btw.
thank you Jeremy.
Hope u had tonz of funz. (despite the waiting and re-taking and makeuping and waking up so damn friggin early and more waiting)
Nah. this is for you.



hehe.

THE WHORELIDAYS ARE HERE

And obviously i am not in a position to enjoy em.

So rather than sulk in self pity of the whatnots and wherebys that i would not be able to indulge in, here is this month's Newbies which i completed in... err....3 days?

i think.
The timeline gets so screwed up sometimes i lose track of what im suppose to do.



was experimenting with fast cuts graphics instead of super smooth ones
that fly in and fly off like we usually do.

4 CHORDS TO RULE THE CHARTS (AND WORLD)

Started off as a night of street-prowling planning.
Ended off as a nonchalantly random room busk session which lasted for 3 whole hours.




tats ShoyBunneigh semangatly joting down the list of songs

My fore fingers hurt.
But nvm. its for a good cause.
the cause of cracking down the most-played most-used 4 chords of all time.


G | D | Em | C

Forgive my amateur music epiphany aftermath enthusiasm.
All y'all musically inclined geniuses have probably already realised this BeforeChrist-ages ago, i know. But its huge for me yo.
Imagine realising all the songs you used to sing through school and blast through your radio speakers and associate fond memories with suddenly smashed to smithereens...

because they ALL share the same. damn. basic. tune.

Apparently these are the 4 chords you will only ever need to learn to completely rule the musical entertainment charts and claim your recording deal and make impact on the world before u own it and digestively leech of any amount of profitable dough.

THE TIDE IS (SO)HIGH

The high tide of the unforgiving work waves have washed up a hazardous heap of dung on my Rainbow door.

Whiff it till ya luv it, i say.

From the words of Legally Blonde: The Musical:
" what doesnt kill us makes us hotter."

Oh yeh.

REMEMBER REMEMBER THE SPLURGE OF NOVEMBER

OK.

so I've been swiping that wretched card at any god-given opportunity dangled in my face so far and am feeling the scorching aftermath of some very splurgetastic items.

OK la so maybe a veteran shopawhorelic would glance at me and pffft my amateur buying power off but still.... i never spend so much money on a pair of shoes and a shirt hokay?! (and much more things on my to-splurge list)

i'm running low on the fuel of life.

I think i've reached a point in time where i feel that appearance and 1st impression is most definitely close to essential la. As impossible as it sounds, i shall dedicate the next few months to investing in this shallow cause and bulldoze my way into extravagant outlets and shiny boutiques i would, on a normal basis, never browse / whiff / set foot in. How absurdly cool of a challenge is that? (talk like i'm some commited 讲到做到 sorta fella right?)

Workwise it's been helping me alot to go out and actually meet people instead of the constant hi-bye acquaintances i've been caging myself in for the past 3 years or so.

New outlook on life i guess.

Rest assured at the end of the day i will still retreat to my sanctum sanctuary of solitude and dust-filled shelves when the sun goes down and the curtains are drawn. But really, i will don a mask and my flash fixture of pearly whites when dawn cometh.

OK, am off to scavenge through the Pelangi dump sites and garbage cans in search of extra pennies for side income now.

Sikit-sikit lama-lama jadi bukit.

Wish me luck.

FISHY FEELINGS FROLICKING

Stopped by the trusty Seremban fish shop (next to Curry Leaf) and got myself a hefty sum of feeder fish for Stoney and Rasco last Sunday.

It's been eons since they had their fair share of savagery.
This is my Halloween present to them.



Look at the abundance of life just waiting to be picked off one by one!
(or 5 by 5. if u go by Stoney and Rasco's consumption rate)

Ah.
Life is good.


This is AhSoon's Bday gathering gangsters the week before Halloween.


insert me in appropriate empty spot.

Plus pics of straws in nostrils of friends.



Hailat Howa


Tsk tsk Tina


Booyah Bunneigh


Hansem Hamster.


i am so damn
Woooh. Liao.
