Equestrian?; I wish.

So much for me becoming an equestrienne.

The opportunity presented itself, I took it, messed up.

I fell off a horse, people. Yes.

Oh yeah, another little thing, I dislocated my left elbow too.

I shall fill you in when I have both hands to type with, :)

Beat to the music, eardrums.

And when I see you,
I really see you upside down.
But my brain knows better,
It picks you up and turns you around.

If you feel discouraged,
When there's a lack of colour here,
Please don't worry lover,
It's really bursting at the seems,
From absorbing everything,
The spectrums A to Z.

from Lack of Colour - Death Cab for Cutie

We're not the same dear, as we used to be.
The seasons have changed, and so have we.
There was little we could say, and even less that we could do.
To stop the ice from getting thinner, under me and you.

We buried our love in the wintery grave,
A lump in the snow was all that remained.
Though we stayed by its side, as the days turned to weeks.
And the ice kept getting thinner with every word that we'd speak.

And when spring arrived, we were taken by surprise,
When the floes under our feet, bled into the sea,
And nothing was left for you and me.

We're not the same dear, and it seems to me.
There's nowhere we can go with nothing underneath.
Then it saddens me to say what we both knew was true,
That the ice was getting thinner, under me and you.

The ice was getting thinner, under me and you.

If you guys get the chance, please give the songs of Citizen Cope a listen. All of his songs are pure greatness.
My favourites are Sideways, Awe, Bullet and a Target, Penitentiary, Holding On, If There's Love, Lifeline and Let the Drummer Kick. Then again, all his songs are awesome, so you should listen to all of them. Have fun :)

Deception Point by Dan Brown


This book is one of the only books that I can honestly say made me laugh and scream out loud. A book has never ever ever made me do that.

It's just clever. And gripping, thrilling and suspenseful. Dan Brown has this way of writing, that glued my hands to his book. I just couldn't put it down. His writing allowed me to create this amazing motion picture in my imagination that I didn't want to stop watching, despite my better intentions to put the book down and sleep!

President Zachary Herney is facing reelection and losing supporters to Senator Sedgewick Sexton because of the Senator's revelation of the harsh truths and his scrutiny over NASA's broken promises, over-budget and failed missions. The President gets Rachel Sexton (the senator's daughter), who is a gister for the NRO, involved in this amazing predicament (a serious "this will change the world" predicament) with some of the smartest people she'll ever meet, to make things right and prove that NASA is important to the country. Gisters reduce complex reports into single-page briefs, and in this case the president needs that confirmation before he broadcasts to the nation, probably ensuring his reelection. It's tricky because Rachel is the daughter of his opponent. Rachel has no choice, and joins the team, amazed to be told that a strange object had been found buried deep in the arctic ice; a meteor. And after countless tests and samples, it was proven that they had discovered fossils of organisms in that meteor; evidential of extraterrestrial life. However, Rachel Sexton and Michael Tolland (from the team), suspect something is amiss when the meteor is pulled out of its icy grave.

This book is really good. You should pick it up and read ittt! :D I will not tell you more for it will ruin everything! GOOOOO DAN BROWNNNNN! JYEAH!

Kuku kachew!

Hello and welcome 2011 :)

Bit late, I know, but hey, better late than never.

I AM ON MID SEMESTER BREAK! JYEAHHHH! A week off, and lets hope I don't waste it.

I got off last Thursday, and shot off straight to LANGKAWI with the family baybay!!!

It was so so so so wonderful. About 13 of us went, and it was amazing, nothing else to say about it.

Went swimming everyday, dug our feet in the beautiful fine sand and let the waves crash on us and drag us around like helpless little rag-dolls, haha. The waves were the biggest I've seen in a while. Though the water wasn't blue where we were staying, it was still great. The blue water was near the airport and where the cable cars place was, that, was some nicely coloured sea water man :)

And my gosh the cable car. FRIGGEN COOL. There were about 2 stations before we got to the top, then we went almost vertical to another station which brought us to the suspension bridge. The view was absolutely breathtaking the whole way. The ride itself was breath taking, like literally. I've never experienced such a quiet atmosphere. All you can hear is the wind. Have you ever heard nothing but the wind? It was like my ears were slathered in gorgeousness. Beautiful, really it was. Going up there, you're surrounded by the pure elegance of nature, lush greens, the earthy tones and silky white threads of water from the waterfall hidden behind the trees, and cool fresh air. Really, really serene :) The suspension bridge was awesome! If you stand still, you'll feel it moving with the wind and the stomping of everyone's feet. But my goodness the stairs that you have to go down from the cable car station to the suspension bridge, woooweeeh! SOOOO MANYY STEPSSSSSSS. Seriously, it was a whole lot of weathered and uneven steps to go down and climb back up. Hahaa. All was worth it though :)

Went to visit Mahsuri's tomb, and that was an interesting history lesson! Her story's so intriguing, and to me, no painted or poetic interpretation of her beauty can ever explain how beautiful she was. I just, I can't imagine. It's almost like the Mona Lisa, there's just something about that painting. You just don't know what. Like, you want to know why she's got that face on and why she was painted. But you can't know. You won't ever really know. Well it's sort of that same feeling for Mahsuri and her story. I don't know, something eerily beautiful.

Here are some pictures, I loved this trip! :)

Waves! Not the biggest I saw though, didn't catch that one on camera! Was too busy being drenched by it :P

These are my footprints; yes I have flat feet :D Doesn't this look like a book cover to you? :P

Had breakfast at Breakfast Bar on Jalan Pantai Cenang (which was where we were staying) and it had this cool thing outside its doors. Good Morning in different languages. Neat huh? :)

Cue music : DUN DUN DUNNN!!!!!
Haha, The cable car line.. alllll the way up there. Woooweeeh!

On the cable car! EEEEK!

This is the highest point I took a picture at, after that, my hands were too shaky, lol :P

The suspension bridge. Beautiful architecture right? Woooh!

Views from the bridge; what did I tell you? :D AWE-wait for it- SOME!
