Melissa's Sweet 17

It was Melissa's 17th birthday yesterday and we had tons of fun! 8D First, she came over to my house after lunch to hang out. The one thing I "gave" her for her birthday was the freedom of making me watch anything she wants. Which is pretty hard to do, since the last time she made me watch Vampire Knight, I hid the CD. 8) She makes me watch a lot of stuff, namely Loveless, D.N.Angel (episode 1 AND the last one), D.Gray-man and stuff. She wanted to make me watch Kuroshitsuji 2, but my internet sucks so I couldn't load the anime. Instead, we watched...

High School of the Dead!

I didn't have any junk food, so Koko Krunch was our popcorn

We watched episode 3-7. It's a pretty nice anime, except that 50% of the time, the animation and drawing is pretty suggestive and uh... yeah. Thank goodness I'm a girl and I don't get turned on. By now I'll be forever disturbed by the dudes who watched this show... o__o It's like Viletta Nu and Kallen from Code Geass on a bigger scale!

Another thing on our agenda was making sushi! (which was why we didn't watch episode 8) So we went into the kitchen with almost zero skill in making them! Melissa had tons of fun messing around, since she hardly cooks. (which was why I'm making her cook at my house 8D)





Rice pwnage


She was actually enjoying the sound of the egg sizzling and "squeaking" o_o


The omelettes! My face was supposed to look like eet (if you're wondering)

Our ingredients for the sushi! (yes, it's not much, I know ;__;)


First roll of the day! (and first one all by myself, ever :D)

Mel going against the norm - TRIANGULAR SUSHI! 8D


My Tamago wrapped sushi! I'm a genius! :3


Our sushi! There's my "tamago" Nigiri sushi too, and Melissa's fat seaweed+egg wrap sushi

But all in all, both of us had TONS of fun. :D And we did it all ourselves too! (other than mum helping to slice the cucumbers) I swear I put too much vinegar in, but still it tasted great! And it tastes like victory! owo

Then, we scurried over back to her house. Her mum picked her up for dinner and I'm going along! But that's what Melissa thinks. Oh no, Shu Hui knows better than that, that's why she took a bath before following Melissa to her house. 8D


SURPRISE!

You see, Khai Xin asked Shu Hui a few weeks ago to help her with surprising Melissa for her birthday. Shu Hui was the distraction for the rest of them to sneak into Melissa's house. Shu Hui even got Melissa's mum in it, and even prepared a barbecue for everyone. Ain't Shu Hui awesome? And Melissa didn't smell anything wrong the whole day either! (except for smelling pretty sticky when she got back home)

We welcomed her to "Fandomland", where Melissa has to speak in third person. HAH. In the first 40 minutes, she broke the rule 20 times. For the whole night, she went OVER 9000!!! over 100. I asked her if she was a "boy" or a "girl" and asked her to name herself. (Pokemon game reference!) Of course, we made her do that in butt-writing. But true to "Fandomland", lots of suggestive stuff appeared that night.


Everyone was entertained by the gay action

Before we started eating, we told her that she had to collect "hearts" from all the guests by doing the specific tasks on their backs and doing another extra task of their choice. Collect 17 "hearts" and she'll make "Kingdom Hearts"! 8D We had quite a lot of silly stuff happening ("Doggy on my back" - I took the meaning literally, and so Mel placed Kingston on Jia Jie!)









Alas, with 17 hearts in hand Melissa opened Kingdom Hearts!


If cakes were made of Heartless, I'd have over 9000 :D


Tradition must be fulfilled :3


I was too drawn by her Dollyeye Brown lens! 8D Can't wait to get mine!


The random tasks sticked on the wall randomly

Melissa had one more task to do in Fandomland. She was supposed to find an item and give it to the mastermind of the party. It's blue. It's a feather. It's from Harvest Moon. 8D When she finally got it, she laughed hard. Told you it was Fandomland! After that, we had Truth or Dare, which was really really entertaining. Jun Kit has more pictures. ;__; Then we continued until after midnight (just Mel, Jia Jie and I) then I went home.

Hope you enjoyed your sweet 17 Melissa! I sure did. :3 And now, I'm gonna have lack of sleep for Taylor Asaban Fest later. And the pimple on my forehead is not going, and to make things worse a new one pop on my nose! Grrr.

See you tomorrow. :D

Number 150

Post number 150!!! Wheee! Just gonna spazz a little more because today and tomorrow will have me with loads more to write about. It's Melissa's birthday today and we'll be spending some time together at my house. :3 She's coming over soon~ And tomorrow is Taylor's Asaban Fest, which was actually my first ever anime convention way back in 2006. Cosplaycosplaycosplay.

Random note: I'm chosen for NS/PLKN. D: Apparently only one third of the school gets in. I must be pretty luck to be in... if only this luck went somewhere else.

Nothing much happened for the whole week, other than much anticipation for the weekend. :3 Yesterday night, I was testing out my cosplay for TAF. I'm doing Shippu! Konoha Gakuen Den again! I'm supposed to do Tenten this time around, but I've been planning and looking forward to do someone else...



Tsunade sensei! :D Principle of Konoha Gakuen, ohohoho! Peeps who are reading this blog post early, this is first insight to what I'll be cosplaying, and also first full face picture of me in a coloured wig. o_o Colouring the eyebrows were hard! Maybe they are too yellow... Wig is Li-ann's, lab coat is Nurul's. xP

While digging through my stuff to make up this outfit, I was looking for my Mia earrings, which were kept in a box along with my Magatama and attorney's badge. So I opened it and I had a surprise.




One of those fake cardboard badges sound like a great idea now...

My Magatama's and badge were made from a mixture of bread crumbs, PVA glue and lotion, so... ;__; I guess I'll have to make new ones now...

I originally planned this post to be about my to-do wishlist. It's kinda a list of things I wish to-do. :X I'll just make a simple list for now(while my mind is still running) and work from there later.


1. Pick up a new instrument! (flute or violin)
After giving my mum hell with my piano lessons for 9 years, it'll be pretty evil to jump back in it with a new instrument. :X But I really really want to! Some time. In the future.

2. Learn sewing!
For cosplay, duh. :P Makes costume making easier and sooooo much cheaper.

3. LOSE WEIGHT
Obvious again. .__.

4. Play more piano!
Perfect some fun songs and record them and YouTube them! 8D Before that, I need to tune my piano. Garrrr.

I just lost my thoughts again. 8D Will type more later. :3

SPAZZM

Guess what? I was sick, again! D: Twice this month already, sheesh! Still coughing a little now, but I'm pretty much healed. And I've been feeling better lately about stuff, so yay! Blogging really helps you get everything out, whether or not people are reading it. (I hope there are!) =w=

Nothing much happened lately. Sooo, I'll tell you about what happened in the past few days. 8D I'm back on a YouTube/music/piano/cosplay high! WOOHOO!

Please log on a computer with high speed streaming and click play on all the videos below. kthxbai. 8)

It started with this. YOU. MUST. WATCH.



First, the music is OWHSM. It's by DJEarWorm, and it's called the "United State of Pop 2009 - Blame it on Pop". It's a mashup of Billboard's 25 top pop music of 2009. And it rocks socks! It flows super duper well! I've been listening to it like 9358392 times in two days I know the words to it. 8D

Second, what an owhsm idea! 8D I so so soooo want to do this too! (one day... I will...) Now I cry at my minuscule cosplay collection. ;__; Now I miss cosplay...

Third, OMG HER COSPLAYS ARE EPICCCC. And her expression! :3 Then I went on to watch her other videos. Hillarious! Demyx Time! Ahhhh!



THEY SAID FLOCCINAUCINIHILIPILIFICATION! GOOD FOR THEM! :D

So now, I'm stuck on YouTube, watching people who are funnier and cooler than me and wishing I was the same. D: Taylor Asaban Fest next week, so at least I get to cosplay! Whee! So, from YouTube, I checked my videos. And from there, I was listening to other people on the piano. So now I'm watching people who are funnier, cooler and more talented than me. D:

So, I spent some time with Persephone! And now I'm gonna try to perfect some of my songs and add them to my channel. The last piano cover I did was July last year. .__. At least I can brag that I was the first person online to make a "Distant Traces of Beauty" cover. (Dahlia's theme from Ace Attorney) :3

Which, ended up with me looking for more sheet music too, because I liked "Sacred Moon" (theme for "The World That Never Was" from "Kingdom Hearts") sooo much I need to play it. Then I found someone on YouTube playing it, from some original sheet music. MUST. HAVE. So, Google abuse! After a few failed downloads and discovery of other stuff (KINGDOM HEARTS HAS A PIANO COLLECTION), I finally got what I want. :3 I would share the link here, except that I forget which are the correct links that links to where, orz. So, I shall be hanging out with Persephone more often. 8)
(EDIT: Oh wait, I just found out my download doesn't contain sheet music... Darn.)

And then, Anthea tagged me with this.



Me Nurul Anthea must sooo do this. 8D With better pitch and in harmony of course! And pwnage cosplay.

And we are getting contact lenses! DOLLYEYE BROWN HERE I COMEEEE. (dubbed Twilight lens)

Yeah, spazzage! 8D

Double Majlis

I got my appetite back! So back to working on overdued blogposts! :3

The two Saturdays before the last, my school was having two big events. Let's start with the one on 24 July. Majlis Makan Malam Amal! One of the PIBG's attempts of leeching money from us. Hurray! First, they make it a point by talking about it at every single assembly. Then, the teachers constantly harass asked all their students to buy the RM50 dinner tickets, shoving it especially hard at "pemimpin muda's" and those holding high positions in clubs. They had a board to record the sales for all the classes for the month, which I never knew existed until it was in its last week. And they were expecting to sell 135 tables! That's 1350 seats! In the end, they pushed the sales really hard and I think they sold almost 1500 seats. Where do they get a hall that big? Anthea, Nurul and Melissa were performing, so they had a first-hand look of the Hotel Singgahsana (dubbed the hotel behind PJ Hilton). It was smaaaaall. Immediately, I knew they never planned to put everyone in the hall.

Boy was I right.
We got there at 5pm and once we entered the hotel, there were already tables lined up right till the entrance. In the hall, ALL the tables were "reserved", for teachers, "VIPs"(there were almost 10 of those VIP tables), and clubs or people who bought 10 seats at one go. Even with the tables outside the hall, there weren't enough tables to go around, so they went all the way to two separate rooms that were cut off from the event. They had LCD screens and speakers for a live feed of what was happening in the hall. But it failed because almost all of the equipments weren't working outside the hall. Poor students who were cheated of their RM50, they probably never saw this coming.

The hall (look closely and you'll notice a guy in black standing higher up - we dub him the Phantom of the Opera :O)

Lucky for me, I was sitting with my friends at the performer's table, so I was in the hall with better view, and earlier access to food. :3 Who wants to wait till 9pm after all the long, boring speeches?


But gosh, the service there was horrible. First, they filled up the cups of people who weren't even there yet, then it took them forever to get to us. And when Melissa asked for a refill, the waiter came by and filled just her cup. Hellooo, don't you see a table of empty cups? Do you need us to call for you 10 times? o_O

And they served the fruits on the what-used-to-be-the-curry-bowl. AGONY!

The food wasn't that great. It's even sad for the other guests who waited through the speeches, only to find a mediocre meal waiting for them. Thank goodness my ticket was sponsored by Koperasi! (perks for being a greenie! :D) The PIBG sure is earning a lot from the ticket sales by giving us a low standard dinner for RM50. Anyhow, more pictures!


The boys who had seats in the "store room"


The strings performance!

Puan Zuana in Anna Sui makeup. Amazing. o__o

Okay... I don't have any other pictures because I was lazy to photograph, the battery was running out and Melissa photobombed me. owo The night went alright, with some pretty interesting performances. xD Everyone went home happily cheated and the PIBG gets a big plus in the bank. Yay!

31 July, Majlis Anugerah Cemerlang. I applied for Tokoh Kokurikulum with high hopes, wishing at least to get Tokoh Kelab dan Persatuan or something. A week before the Majlis, two of the school ustazah passed me the invitation to my parents. I was excited to have won something, but I had no idea what I won. Puan Zuana congratulated me, but she wouldn't tell me what it was either! Then we had two rehearsals with every club's president, every MSSD participants and PMR achievers. It takes at least 4 hours for them to get everything done. =/ It was then I found out that I had the biggest prize of all. Tokoh Murid Kokurikulum! Then they told me that on the day itself, they wanted my parents to go on stage with me. Wow...

I was really shocked and happy about it. I reckoned that it was "Tokoh Murid Kokurikulum" and not the real "Tokoh Murid" because my academic wasn't excellent. There wasn't a Tokoh Murid in 2006 too, so I honestly thought there was some requirements that needed to be fulfilled (all subjects B and above, president of a club, yada yada), and that my award was not the same one, but just a substitute for that. Then on Saturday, they told me that my award was the last one to be given out at the ceremony because it was the most important one. And it was only after accepting the trophy that I was convinced that I had really really became the Tokoh Murid.

Me and my beautiful mum :3

Piala Pusingan! With all the past winners names engraved on the side.

It was really a proud moment for me. =) Even my eldest brother came along, teehee. Other fun stuff that day was that the choir performed (it's always fun when the choir perform), and then there was the really cool choral speaking performance led by Ili! And we camwhored.

Rawk on!


Attempts of lala-fication :D


Epic wtf moment

The eldest brother doing what he does best :D

That's all for the photos. On a side note, I'm finally signed up for more than one tuition. Zomg!

Blessings

Lately, I've been pretty down with a lot of things to think about. It's the last year of high school, SPM year, and the BIG, stressful decisions to make in life coming next year.

I remember a lot of things. Little things, big things, happy moments, proud moments, meaningful moments... I keep them deep in my heart. I guess that's why I always find myself constantly needing reminders of these things I hold dear. There's so many things in my mind now that's making me feel differently. And I think I know the main reason of why I've been down - I've been missing those things.

I would be lying if I said I wasn't jealous seeing my friends having their birthdays celebrated by other friends. Cards signed by all your friends, friends pooling in money to buy presents, singing birthday songs in different languages... Of course I had expectations on my birthday. and truthfully, my 17th birthday had affected me in some way. All I wish for was to at least be able to leave with sweet memories. It was a Sunday on 4th April this year. It was Sports Day, and I was there. My last birthday with my high school friends, but nothing to remember it by.
I can't exactly be pointing fingers and blaming my friends for not building that memory for me. Everyone has been so caught up with life this year, so busy, and sometimes things would slip everyone's mind. I admit I'm sometimes careless too.
So, before I forget:
Thanks to all my friends for the 4 great birthdays you've shared with me in high school
Thanks JC for the birthday cake in 2008 - for giving me the chance to celebrate in class, to cut my own birthday cake and distributing it to my friends, all for the first time (sounds stupid, but it meant a lot, really)
Thanks Anthea, Nurul, Ili, for going crazy with me and celebrating 2009 and 2010 with me at Subang Parade and Sunway Pyramid, love you girls :3
Thanks everyone for all the birthday cards I've ever received! Anthea, Sarah, Melissa, Tara, Reuben... everyone.
I really missed those moments.

I used to commit myself in everything I could get my hands on because the experience and the people made it an enjoyable experience. It's rewarding when you see how your efforts were able to change things and touch people. Being in it for awhile, it does wear me out, and sometimes, we need someone to remind us again why we put ourselves through the hassle. I'm glad to say that finally, my efforts were somewhat recognized.


Last Saturday, 31 July, the school has named me "Tokoh Murid". I'm genuinely surprised and flattered, and ecstatic that I managed to make my mum so incredibly proud of me. I often take her compliments for granted, as they were rare and drowned in her naggings and other harsh and frequent opinions about me. After all the crap that has happened lately, I'm unable to fully bask in the glory of my huge win. That is when I realized how much these things really meant to my family, especially my mum. Although she has constantly used this win as an excuse to remind me of the family's expectations in my SPM, my family was the one who gave me the chance to celebrate this.
Mummy, if you're reading this, thank you for being with me through this time. Typing this down, I think we've became pretty close the past few days, and I'm really really happy that my hard work, this award, has made you become my friend.

It's impossible to turn back time. And like Debbie once said, no matter what the condition, you can never capture the same picture with the same angle, same expression, same lighting. (or something like that) I really missed what used to be, when we had no worries and played childish games, and laughed madly over the stupidest things. I think I've sometimes forgotten how to smile because I'm missing those days. So I hope that I'll be able to carry these memories with me, but make new moments with all of you so I'll never forget how to smile.

And please kindly do remind me if my blessings I've forget.

My life is filled with blessings
Abundant like the air
I've a little bit of everything
And a lot of love to share

I have all my friends to thank for
And I've nothing to regret
So please kindly do remind me
If my blessings I forget

There are days of joyous laughter
Of simple endless fun
There are times of childlike wonder
It's as if, life's just begun

I must thank the happy faces
Of the people that I've met
And please kindly do remind me
If my blessings I forget

While these blessings come and go
There'll be times when I'm alone
So I'll thank my friends and family
For the love they've always shown

My life is filled with blessings
How much I'll never know
They have soothed my times of trouble
They have helped me learn and grow

So I think it's now the right time
To return these deeds of love
And become a shining blessing
To one and all and all above

I'll become a shining blessing
To one and all and all above

Sick Girl is Sick

Random post time! (whoa, rajinnyer)

Fell sick the pass few days. .___. Oddly, I fell sick just around this time last year too. How'd I remember? During the same Koperasi Annual General Meeting last year, I skipped school on Wednesday to rest, and went to attend the meeting. I'm that committed. :D

On Tuesday, went to school as always, feeling normal as usual (which meant feeling sleepy). Couldn't sleep during Moral period because we were sitting on the floor in the Dewan (Me: "Surely going to pengsan during Chemistry"). Felt dizzy and tired during Chemistry. After recess, I didn't feel any change of temperature, but my body was cold. Reaaally cold. We had no idea what was happening to me, but there must be something wrong with me, and I've never felt this way before! So, I took a rest at the Bilik Kesihatan (first time!), and was surprised that there were already three girls resting in there. (probably their ponteng spot :X) I felt much better and got back to class right before school ended. But then, turned cold again during EST. Finished up my exercises in a jiffy and dropped dead on the desk. Thank goodness there wasn't English Society meeting that day! Went home for a needed short rest before Add Maths tuition. Got back home in the evening and my whole body, except for my palms and feet, turned hot.

Then, I finally knew it. Fever. =.=

It was hoooorrible! My brother was sick that day too, and my dad fell sick the next day! Sad, sad. For me, looking or smelling any heavy food, especially oily stuff makes me feel sick to the stomach. (omg that sounds like I'm pregnant o_o) Even eating porridge was painful! So for the whole night, I lay shivering on the couch with my blanket watching Biggest Loser.

The next day, I felt better but my stomach's still being evil. I ate nothing but two slices of pizzas (Koperasi AGM made me! D:) and some dragonfruit. It's Thursday today, and my tummy's still being evil. If this doesn't lose me any weight, I dunno what will.

Wanted to blog about something emo, but I'm not in the mood at the moment. Sky juice, anyone? owo
