Ayo SONE! The journey on the SoShi Express

SNSD I Got A Boy wallpaper 3

So in my WordPress posts, I have always left traces of my SNSD fanboying in them, posting pictures and talking anything related about them. I HAD to dedicate a whole post to them, and here I will share how my journey on the SoShi Express has been. Although most may see this as pointless and just another average post from a SNSD fanboy, it’s hard to believe but along this ride, I have learnt and gained much which I would not have been able to experience at other places. *WARNING: massive fanboying ahead*

This journey for me started back when I was Sec 4 during early 2009. During that period, SNSD and their newly released song Gee was trending among my friends and of course the curious me went to check out the music video. My reaction wasn’t like: “OMG THIS IS THE BEST SONG EVERRR”, but it was good enough to stir my interest regarding the girls. The me that time had no clue about the Korean scene: I was watching taiwan variety shows plus dramas and listened mostly to english songs. I started to look up anything related to them: performances, variety shows and even commercial appearances. It was like I was exposed to a whole new world, and it was something which it liked and had to find out more. Before I knew it, I was slowly sucked into the world of kpop. And before I go on anymore further, let’s just say that me knowing SNSD and slowly turning into a SONE turned out to be one of the best things that could happened to me! 🙂

With that, I signed up at a member in Soshified and started exploring the videos section, and these are the videos which got it all started. There was Star Golden Bell, Hello Baby and Invincible Youth, but what left the biggest impact was Intimate Note, where I learnt a lot about each member. Although you wouldn’t understand some of the jokes before then, after re-watching the show, you would understand them a whole lot better. The teasing of the heights of Taeyeon and Sunny, that infamous alligator laugh from Yoona, and the virtuousness of Seohyun. At the beginning, yes it was hard to learn all of their names, but the show helped me a lot to match each member and its traits to its names. Shockingly I didn’t really had a problem with the YoonYulSeo triplets, and slowly I finally got all 9 of their names correctly, and also started to learn more of each of them from reading their individual sections in the ssf forums, as well as watching more of their shows. From reading all the threads, the pairings start to form up, such as TaeNy, JeTi, YulTi, YoonSeo, and although there are 9 of them, each of them have their unique traits which makes them memorable. From Tell Me Your Wish, Oh!, Hoot and now I Got A Boy, their songs have become a staple in my iphone and my running playlists too. My favourite song till now has been Tell Me Your Wish, so much that it has been played over 1000 times on my iTunes LOL. The Tiffany part where she says: “DJ, put it back on!”, I always have the goosebumps hearing it. As each concept come and go, all of them mature along as well. You don’t see them with lollipops anymore and now they have a much more mature concept. If you see the SNSD in 2009 and 2013, although it has only been 5 years, their attitude and behavior have changed immensely. Topics such as drinking and dating are no more shunned upon, and my current bias Seohyun… omg who would have ever imagined our Keroro loving maknae grew out of her shell haha! ^^


Our ever-growing maknae! ^_^

Now here comes the interesting part, I believe that being a fan of SNSD has actually benefitted me a WHOLE  lot (true story). I too was the delusional fanboy who couldn’t get enough of them and wasted a lot of time following them, one really awful example was where I brought my mini laptop to classes so that I could use the school WiFi and download all my SNSD related videos. And after returning home, I would proceed to ‘multitask’, watching those videos and studying at the same time. As my common test results have shown, this ‘multitasking’ obviously wasn’t productive and here I decided that if I wanted to study, do it properly. After flunking the CTs, my attitude towards my fanboying also changed. The fanboy in me died down little by little as I was more focused in pushing my grades up but I still enjoyed all my SNSD shows, now just in moderation. After achieving what I wanted to for my promos, during the holidays the fanboy in me gradually came back, but now I managed to find the delicate balance between work and fun, as I strived to improve my J1 foundation while also catching up on my SNSD-related videos. Although there are times where new releases tempted me, such as the release of Hoot which had to come out during my Project Work period, as well as The Boys which came out during my A Level period after a 1 year hiatus. Okay, so I did succumb to them and had to go watch it, but after finishing it, it sort of brought out the extra motivation in me to study harder, since I spent some time fanboy-ing already. The usual: Work hard, play hard, or in this case: Work hard, fanboy hard! The delicate balance between being a fanboy from being a blind fanboy was also found during this period, as my opinion toward other girl groups started to be unbiased as well and I wasn’t full mode defending SNSD all the way, and this helped me enjoyed and appreciate other girl groups and their songs as well! Then, there were times when life didn’t go exactly the way I wanted and what do I do? Watch some of their variety shows! Their dorky sides always cheer you up and brings a smile to my face. Yes this might sound a bit excessive but don’t we derive our sources of happiness from different sources? SNSD just happens to be one of them for me! 😀

SNSD has also helped me open up the many pathways to more aspects of the Korean world. I got into other singers, as well as many more Korean variety shows and dramas, but it were the ones where SNSD appeared in which got me all started. The first other K-artist I listened to was IU and her acoustic performance in Sketchbook, and her cover of Gee along with Sorry Sorry and Lies was just daebak, and during that time she was only 16 and just started out as a rookie artist. This also brought out my appreciation for artists who have real vocal talents and can sing without a backtrack. Onto the variety show side, Yoona’s and Taeyeon’s appearance in Family Outing had me watching all of the other episodes, which branched out to other shows such as Running Man, Dream Team, 2D1N, etc. Same goes for dramas, where my first Yoona drama (Cinderella Man) got me into so much more dramas, and after watching many of them, you realize that although your bias is inside the drama, it doesn’t mean that it’s good (sorry but CM was mediocre at best oops :x). I did a little fan-subbing here and there as well, and only through doing part of the subbing process itself (from the translation, to the timing to the QC and the typesetting), would you realize the number of hours needed to put in for quality subs. Best of all, most of the fan-subbing groups out there do it for free, just for all their fellow fans there. I also studied Korean for a short while but now I’m unable to have any commitments to lessons so I cant expand my knowledge much. Nonetheless, having basic knowledge of hte language here and there have helped me understand the shows I watch ever so slightly. Watching 2D1N really helped me know some of the Korean cuisine since all of them are forever feasting on food and whenever me and my friends go out for a feast, Korean buffet is a must now and then ohnomnom. A trip to Korea is now on the top of my bucket list as I want to be physically be at all the areas that I have seen on TV. And have I ever mentioned how hot it is when Jessica and Tiffany speak English?

spreading some JeTi love <3

spreading some JeTi love ❤

Although many see them as mega-celebrities, many of us forget that they are also like us, normal human beings and have their down-to-earth sides. They do have their silly and unglam moments, the most obvious example being Taeyeon’s ahjumma laughter. And all of them worked hard to be what they are now, the nation’s girl group, where many do not notice the effort they put in way before their debut and only see what they have achieved currently. Remember their first public performance and how nervous they were backstage? Now, they are owning the stage with thousands of fans with their pink lightsticks cheering them song after song. Did they ever complain? Maybe, but as this shows there is no shortcut to getting what you want, and with this point in mind I studied my ass off during promos to avoid getting retained, and gained much more in return. Back when my bias was still Taeyeon (Taeyeon is still my 2nd bias okay!) and was only slightly drifting to Seohyun, what amazed me about Seohyun was how she still sticked to her principles and her lifestyle choices although were really upright to a scary extent, to the point which made Yonghwa speechless during their first meeting in WGM, is something which you can admire and give a thumbs up. I mean who would have said that the person they look up to is the secretary-general of the UN?! Seeing Seohyun striving to improve herself as a person in areas where celebrities usually don’t touch is a very heart-warming sight, and being me I try to follow some of them: I started to read more, eat SLIGHTLY cleaner (you can’t say no to food all the times), and work harder to improve myself as a person. I even followed some of Seohyun’s ridiculous habits, such as eating of potatoes, and using the seatbelt when I sit at the back. Despite her hectic schedule, she still finds the time to attend classes in university. How can a free me give excuses not to study when she can study? HA!

Till today as of the year 2013, I am still somewhat a diehard SONE and I am definitely not embarrassed about it, as a matter of fact I show the fanboy side of me a bit too often (to the irritation of my army buddies in camp). It’s really weird that I haven’t shifted away my interest away from them and it has been 5 years already since I first got to know of their existence. Yes, I blew a lot of money and time buying their posters, albums, and going to their concert but to me, it’s all worthwhile. That 2.5 hours seeing them within a few feet apart, priceless! (shall not go into further details or else I will just keep typing on and on hahas).It has been an enriching journey, and I don’t see any reason stopping. So let’s continue on this SoShi Express and as a SONE, grow together with them. Next stop? GG World Tour 2013 in Singapore, I need an offical announcent like right now, MAKE IT HAPPEN PLEASE! 😀


you just can’t get enough of them right? (And yay I manage to get a post out for July hehe!)


It’s good to be alive! Life after A’s

It’s the new year, and for the first time in my 18 years, I do not need to go to school. Whew joy to the world! After being finally released (temporary) from the education system and given a load of free time, I really finally had the time to just relax, look at the ceiling (LOL) and have nothing to worry about. Most people I know have a job during the holidays, but I just choose to slack my remaining days off and really, REALLY, enjoy life to the max, and just do the many things I wanted and love to do when I didn’t have the time to do last year. During the 2 years in Senior High, most of my time was spent on “closet-mugging” and I didn’t really get to do much, maybe except during the holidays in Year 5 and the beginning of Year 5 where I just slacked too, but back then studies was still my top priority. One K-drama I could relate back to would be Scent Of A Woman, where the lead basically got only a few months to live and lived her life to the fullest after years of hardship. (ok you can’t say 2 years of SH life is exactly hardship, and I don’t literally have a few weeks to live, just using a metaphor).

It’s the new year, but basically nothing changes

After A’s, I have 3 months of free time to do all the stuff I wanted to do. Fortunately, I worked out the stuff I wanted to do before and during the A Level period, and I don’t necessarily have to complete my list before I head for enlistment, just enjoy the process while doing it. I previously wrote about going to MAMA and SNSD concert, which was basically the top 2 stuff I wanted to do Korean-related after the As. Actually going to either 1 of those would have been sufficient, but although the tickets were expensive, it was really fun to have gone all to those (no need for the details). I also wanted to go to Korea, but if I wanted to go Korea, I had to miss the SNSD concert. Any dumbass would have gone to Korea, but c’mon, going to a SNSD concert was literally a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see them perform all their songs. I saw them once live in MAMA already, but one song was definitely not enough :O. I don’t know if they would return to Singapore again, and even if they do, I could be stuck in the army. By the time I have enough money to go to Korea, they might have retired or gone inactive already. How could I say no? Well, maybe next time for Korea, since it’s going to be there forever and I would always have the chance to go there once I have the time and money. Heck, I could go there for an exchange program during university. There are many other opportunities out there, no point crying over one. Instead, I went to Taipei and did the same stuff again. Eat, shop, eat, visit relatives, eat, walk around, eat. I gained 3kg itself from the 1-week trip itself (mother of god), but it was nice to see my relatives in Taipei, which I didn’t see for close to 2 years. Went to see some distant relatives for the 1st time as well, which was kind of interesting because you are meeting people who are living in really different environments. The stronger family bond is evident, which is heartwarming to see, but we do have our similarities, such as our constant usage of our phones and my female cousins having a sweet tooth (just like my sis). I missed the year-end prom AND class trip to Thailand just for this trip, but no matter what, family comes first. I never really thought about how hard is it for my mom to be only able to her mom (which is my grandma) once every year or two, BASED on me and my sister’s schedule. If I can’t go to Korea, Taiwan would be the second best thing. I wanted to travel at least once outside of Singapore during the 3 month break, since Singapore to me is really a concrete jungle, and even the sunset is like a rare scene for me here.

me goofing around with my sis with one of our SUPER RARE zi pai attempts LOL

Other than attending Korean-related events, I also got to do many other stuff related to it. I watched tons of drama, some at a slow pace, but some at disgustingly fast speed (I finished Scent Of a Woman in 2 days and Protect The Boss in 3 days). After the new year arrived, I went back and continued learning Korean, which I stopped for a while during Year 5 in order to focus on studies. Most of my friends think I study Korean just for my love for SNSD, which is true ONLY to a certain extent (lol self-denial). I really like the Korean culture, which I learnt from Korean documentaries and dramas and there is many things about Korea which are intriguing and tend to be forgotten, from other genres of Korean music to the culture and even the food. This includes myself, who can’t seem to stop idolizing SNSD until it gets to the point of being annoying, but I would say I’m not so into K-pop and the Korean wave as compared to perhaps 2 years ago. I don’t go on Soshified everyday or listen to K-pop everyday lol. But still as I stated before, I would support those 9 girls all the way! Many tend to forget or don’t even know the hard work these idols put into their debut. Although I don’t like all the K-pop groups, I do have respect for all of them, given the years of dedication they put into their work and practice, along with the ability for them to survive the wrath of the many kinds of fans. Other than that, I do fan subs, which after going through the process itself, realize how tiring the process is. Dramas are much easier, but imagine a group of people talking to each other in a variety show, and not to mention the captions. But all of these I’m just taking it as an experience and take that I’m helping the community, as well as the subbing groups who 100% do it for the fans (unlike some which do for the fans)

9 angels ❤

Other than that, there are many things I’ve done. Sometimes, I would just sit down and play the guitar, while singing out songs at the balcony by myself. Although there isn’t a beautiful view or something (all I see is the PIE lol), it feels great with the silent night and night breeze blowing at you. I also do go exercise on a more regular basis, such as going to the gym or go for a run. Running around the Kembangan track really feels good, and it really helps you clear your mind and worries (things just feel so awesome when done at night). Having a healthy body really makes you feel good. You don’t really need to have a killer figure, just one which is healthy. I also started to read books, which kinda reminded me of my Primary School days which I read every single Roald Dahl book. Having school means I just couldn’t find the time to read books, but now I do haha. I always imagined myself to be at a Starbucks, sipping at hot coffee while reading a book, which I get to do now! Last year, I go there and study, while getting chased at times, but now no such thing happens! Enjoying the rich coffee smell, sitting on the dimly lit shop on a couch and just read a book. I should be out with a job and earning money, but I’ve been doing the opposite and blowing money instead, which makes me feel like a lazy pig. (writes note: must find job after NS)

Of course, I do go out with friends (I do not stay at home all day okay -_-). Like what Terence said, friends are REALLY important. When you have no one to turn to, you can always turn to your friends. It’s always nice to meet friends after school ended, from 4F to 24 to any one I’ve met during my 6 years in DHS. Although there was no 4F or 24 chalet (lazy me…), there were many outings between both class and guys that I went, and it’s just feels really good to just sit down, chill, relax and chat about stuff. I also (like 18 months haha) finally got to clear something off my head through HTHT haha, so it’s all good. Most of the guys are enlisting in like a few days, and I really wanted to spend more time with them, but all of us have to go serve our nation, sooner and later. During my break, I really got to spend good time together, from cocking around, going to the gym, eating together, talking to each other about life, and many other things. I would really miss the school times we spent together, and hopefully all of us can keep in touch (which I’m sure we would). Especially for someone like me which is incredibly shy, it’s really rare to find such great friends, and I feel fortunate to have such friends and could not have asked for better. This reminded me of Tiffany, whom I respect a lot for being so mentally strong, despite her mom passing way when she was at a young age.

Mom, you left this world before I have, but you gave me 8 sisters.

*bows back*

In all, there are many other things that I wanted to do (really learn drumming, travelling around, jamming with the guys, etc.), but I’m already satisfied. You always take things for granted, even to the simplest stuff such as having a house to live in, or to have both of your parents etc. Nearly every year, as I look back, I really feel like I’ve grown a lot and matured. Let’s hope this trend goes on and I can improve on myself and become a better person in the future!

Hoping the year 2012 would be a good one for all! And it’s good to be alive~

P.S. I got my inspiration to write this long, long note from 艾莉絲, whom recently got married. Randomly hopped on her blog and got the inspiration from there haha. Time really flies, 2 years ago I was watching her hosting tian cai chong chong chong and now she’s married >.<

glad she got her perfect wedding haha

The last brick wall

Yes, we’re finally on the last lap. Less than a month to the As, and it seems like there was more than 200 days to the As. Well, reality hits hard, and we are always done in the 12 years of education. Haven’t been posting for a while, and I won’t post here till after my A’s, so I will try to make this worthwhile.

Got back prelims, hit my expectations. Surprisingly, I hit my expectations for every subject, even my Maths haha. Exact results will come on Friday, but I know where I stand. Could have enter the 80 marks range if I did a little better in Chemistry and Econs, but now I know my weak areas, no point thinking about it and go straight for the As. Getting a bit cocky now, since I’m slacking, which is the WORST thing to do. To be honest, I didn’t feel like I put in 110% for the prelims, maybe around 80%, but I improved a lot. Got an A in Geography, which I am super happy about, especially when I thought I flunked. Although I told myself to be more optimistic this year, I always think of the worst for my exams, such as fucking up Maths etc. Turns out, I’m doing much better than expected, so that’s a definite plus. I tell myself that I have come a long way since the CTs last year, so slacking now will just put all the effort I put since then into shame. I think I really improved a lot, from someone who shy away from academics to one doing relatively well now. I mean, I’m someone who got a GPA of 2.8 in Year A, but I still vividly remember a screwed up assembly where your projected score for the As has a high correlation with your GPA. Well, take that, cause I don’t see myself flunking in As. HAHA!

There’s only 1 week left in school, and I’m glad I get to leave the god-forsaken school. To be honest, I think I would have been much better off in another class, but that’s bullshit since people like Jiayu and Boon are still owning in academics. I always wanted to positive environment in school, something like what I see in Yong Sheng’s class, but what I see in my class is the exact opposite. If you have the passion in something, doing it would come natural. Ok, it’s 2 am now, so I may just be ranting. I’m dreading the last week of school, can’t you just give me a week off so that I can study in peace? Other than that, I’ve definitely met an awesome group of people.

Nearing to the end point, I kinda lose a little motivation here and there, but I recently gained 2 new insightful ones. One of them would be Steve Jobs. I reviewed one of his talks in Stanford and the famous quote still sticks in my mind. “Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish”, is something really applicable now. I sort of follow only the hungry part, but that quote teaches a lot of things. If you want something, you gotta do something unconventional. Now that he recently passed away, he definitely left a legacy behind him. I learnt of his death on my iPod Touch, how ironic. The years of work he left behind would be an inspiration to many, and his actions speak for himself. Never give up, and go for your dream. His passion for Apple was simply amazing, and he would be definitely missed.

My second inspiration now is SNSD’s Seohyun (lol?). My bias used to be Taeyeon, but it’s slowly shifting to Seohyun. I’m just awed at how someone could be so upright and disciplined. Actually, I think she would have been better off as a student, since the idol status is probably stopping her from doing a lot of things, such as pursuing her studies. However, she’s clever to use her idol status into good use and I’m so glad that she got to meet her idol UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon. In the short of 2 weeks of holiday where I spammed SNSD videos, I learnt how mature of a person she is despite her just being 20. Now, I would try to emulate her style (Kinda) and hopefully get into gear in time for the As.

Probably one of the crappy posts all time, but until then, I will continue to study hard, and of course, no regrets.

ok she’s officially my new bias >.<

2010 resolutions

Ok might as well do one, this won’t be a resolution, more of a short-term dream which I wish to accomplish. since its 2010, I’ll put 10 things i wish to accomplish this year. In no particular order, whatever order I write these is what I thought of first.

1. Pass all of my subjects

Geography, Maths, Economics, Chemistry, GP, PW. All at least a C, hopefully a few Bs and As too.

2. Be able to play the guitar better

Nothing flashy, this is what I aim to be able to play by the end of 2010. May sounds impossible, and why this song? Pretty obvious right =.=

3. Translation and Timing

Aim: To be able to translate 10-minute part in 1 hour, timing not so sure. And maybe I will register myself at RamenSoupSubs. We’ll see and wait

4. Mastering Improving my korean

If I’m going to do something, might as well finish the job. Korean is kinda fun anyway, may come in handy someday, especially *cough, cough*, I’ll skip that.

5. Save some money $$$

Self-explationary. Don’t go out too much, don’t eat too much fast food. Walk instead of taking the bus (Of course from the MRT, not from school.)

6. Enjoy More Quality Time with Family & Friends

I always try to aim this. Being a new class would be hard, they would be many chances for the class to bond, right 5c24 =P. Still wishing the 4F guys could meet up, maybe watch 2010 World Cup? While waiting, Jun Kai and me can watch some SNSD videos rofl.

7. 1000 posts at soshified

No idea why this, must be running out of ideas haha. Got a new account since I forgot my old account username rofl. 3 posts a day should be possible anyway

8. Post in this wordpress more frequently

39 posts in 2009, that’s around 3 every month. I will try to add somemore stuff and remove some as well. Haha

k maybe not 10, 8 will do. More posts to come next week until school starts. Until then, I’m off learning the F chord (1st baby step into playing My Guardian Angel)

Merry Christmas!

Taking this chance to wish everyone who reads this post a Merry Christmas/belated Merry Christmas 🙂

Today I went to Christmas Stomp with Dillon and some other few people. The place was so crowded, people had to sit on the steps. The first hour was really nice, a video-game concept, and the actors really engaged with the audience. The ending was so abrupt, wished it could lasted longer and actually completed the game. The last hour was this guy talking and talking and talking and talking. I was so bored that I was so tempted to take out my iPod and listen to some K-pop. Bleh, after the whole thing ended, the other people were planning to go eat supper and see lights at Orchard, camp/ go to the forest (<— I wtf at this). But I'm not the type who likes to hang out so late, so I decided to go home. Thankfully, Dillon went with me and we went to drink some hot chocolate at Simei Starbucks. Anyway, I just want to thanks Mr Dillon Foo, my classmate and friend for 4 years for being with me all these while, without you I wouldn’t have survived to school. I enjoyed our 1 hour chat at Starbucks over that Christmas Stomp, although we won’t me classmates next year, I still love you LOL (in a brothery way). That just made me miss those Maple Legendhero gatherings, most of us quitted maple anyway. Miss you guys already!

So I got gifts for my family. The most funny thing is that I got my mom those toys where you can put your handphone in it, and my mom gave me the exact same thing, just a different thing. My family got around the artifical Christmas Tree and opened gifts around 15 mins. It’s so hard to get the whole family together for a fun time other than dinner, so it was great. It’s around 1am now, so I’m going to celebrate Christmas after my sleep. Right now, it’s still 2 weeks left to the start of Senior High. Seriously, I miss you 4F guys already, and that chat with Dillon just made you miss you guys even more. ❤ 4FlipFlops 09! I'll be forever [4FLIPFLOP’09<3!] Guardian, that 4flipflop tag will be with me on my MSN name for a while, maybe until i go into my new class. This Christmas surprisingly made me treasure the bond between us flippers even more. Another gathering pl0x…

2 weeks left, now learning the Hangul alphabet in Korean, hope to learn more and actually make some simple sentences. Hoping to learn some timing and learn more about the subbing processes in videos. Other than that, play less DoTa and Mousehunt and play more of my guitar. Hopefully I’ll settle my CCA soon. And this is my message to Guitar Ensamble, it’s your loss you didn’t chose me. I’ll still learn guitar, but maybe this is a blessing and a early christmas gift for me. Instead of playing guitar as a CCA, I can learn it as a hobby and something I can enjoy. I can focus on my studies more hopefully and play songs I actually I like. Watch me, I’ll make sure I own guitar, even if it takes me to lose even more skin on my fingers. After today, I realise I’m the type which should just stay in front of the comp,uter staying out late is not my type of thing. Call me a computer geek, it just suits me better. Haha

Another song for this Christmas, this song is Dreamland by BENNIE K (a J-pop song)

They can’t stop my heart!
Now get a party started alright!
omoi wo asu e nose
It’s like wonderland
te wo nobaseba alright!!
Then I feel like I’m dreaming!

A really happy song, fits the Christmas theme well.
Wishing all again another Happy Christmas! ^o^

Before I knew it… another day passes by… my footsteps take me back home.
With a thought that started with a strong heart, sometimes despite these tiring days.
This precious freedom drags my exausted body, and follows that road

Seoul, you’re my beautiful world, make my dreams come true.
Sooyoung ♥

although Sooyoung isn’t one of my favourite, this picture is just awesome!

Holiday… madness?

It’s been 2 and a half weeks since I came back from Taiwan. Life’s boring now, and I still have around 1 month to enjoy this ‘holiday’. After that, 2 years of torture for A levels, and when you thought its over. Nah, say hello to another 2 years of National Service. So right now is it holiday fun or holiday boredom?

As you see, I changed my layout again, wanted to put a custom banner for my blog, and was thinking of what to do. Only 1 obvious answer came up to my head, “SNSD”!!!. Lol, the pictures is from SPAO shootout if you are interested, and I photoshopped it. The Guardian is genie font, looks familar right? Thought it would fit the winter theme. See the snow falling? Haha, since this is the holidays, I should have more time blogging, but I’m getting fucking lazy. I watch TV till 2+ in the morning because I’m lazy to go to my bed. LOL, I’m lazy like that. So what have I been doing? Certainly not work, can’t find a good job. So what else? Staying at home 24/7. Unlike last year’s holidays, I did something more meaningful this year. Firstly, I’m now a translator at strongheartsubs, you’ll see my name at episode 5 lol. Strong Heart is a very nice talk show, you get to know a lot more about celebrities and their touching stories. I just don’t like that how some episodes focus on a few guests. Ep 1 was GD and Seung Ri, Ep 2 was 2NE1… and a story about a guy being mauled by a tiger lost to a story about reducing the time 2NE1 can get boyfriends (seriously wtf?). I have been also self-learning korean. LOL, but the only phrase i remember is that Hello is anneyo haseyo and coffee is kopi. Other than that, nothing much in my boring life. I still dota, mousehunt, go to guitar every Tuesday, watch SNSD videos, and some 2D1N episodes. 2 Day 1 Night is a damn funny show, I recommend those who like to see guys play and fight while seeing the beatiful sights of South Korea. It’s like a 2 in 1 show for me, so it’s very nice. Subbing is a VERY tedious process, especially all the bloody captions. Now I know why soshified takes so long to come out subbed videos. Credits to them!

6 guys on a 2 day 1 night vacation. what can you expect?

So what next for Guardian? Not much, maybe meet up with some of the 4F guys, play with some photoshop, some more dota (no more 6.64 pls), more SNSD, more korean, practise my guitar, and wait for the crude 2010 to come. By the way, what’s so nice about a new year? I don’t get why people waste so much money on parties to celebrate 1st January of every year. Gratz, you lived another year in this fucking screwed up life…

Time for me to go watch Liverpool vs Arsenal. Haha

Taeyeon in Strong Heart = Double win ^o^



This would be my first and last post for September before the EOYs rush. The next time there would be a new post would be mid October after my EOYs. Anyway I’m quite surprised about having so many views taking that less than 10 people know about this blog. having 5000 views in 9 months is quite an achievement for me, taking that I have 500 views a month, that means around 15 views a day. This holidays was supposed to be for me this kind of noob fuck to catch up, turns out I get too distracted easily. Went to Starbucks on Sunday and Thursday to do Maths, was quite productive until I ended up watching videos on my iTouch due to getting bored. Still ordered my usual Mocha Frap, $7 pain but Starbucks condusive for learning, especially being away from my computer *MouseHunt*…

Recently, especially among the guys in 4F, there has been a recent Korean girls craze, and I remembered when wz saw me making a wallpaper of TaeYeon, he MSN-ed me and asked when my taste changed to Korean, how the fuck should I know why? Anyway I think the only 1 chio is SNSD is TaeYeon, the rest okok, but Jun Kai mentioned about watching videos of SNSD, but one bad thing is that it’s Korean, so I have to look for subs. Just pure bad timing to get crazy over them… Hope this craze gets away soon… or else I would start having SNSD videos in my iTouch (I now have 10 videos of them out of 550, 2% of total) My father thinks that they are a bunch of plastic dolls, and I don’t disagree with him lol. But what can I expect from my dad? We are of two different generations, so our taste sure different.

Skip the girls for a while, do something constructive *Peter Chao Style*. There’s less than 3 weeks to the start of EOYs, should have started mugging a long time ago. I rewrote the WHOLE chem notebook, did the Physics paper and some maths, haven’t even touched Geography. I can’t wait for the end of EOYs, and class chalet. To be honest, I’m not really looking forward to all those ”class-bonding activites”, I just wanna have fun with the guys, and I’m not really the enthu type. Many will argue, say what I’m a loner bla bla, but looking at the girls in our class, it’s hard seeing all 33 people having fun, some would surely missed out of the fun. Thinking of it now, it’s seems like you want to do alot of things before the EOYs, but after it ends, you seem to have nothing to do… ahhh FUCK IT!

My stomach’s growling now, time to go to the washroom.
