Tea-aholic

I am so hooked on tea! I drink tea daily. I have Green tea, Pu-erh tea, and Oolong (wulong) tea at home. According to http://oolong.co.uk/oolong.htm,

"Tea contains significant levels of manganese and potassium, but its antioxidant flavonoids (a kind of polyphenol) are the main components thought to promote good health. There is strong - but still not conclusive - evidence that tea may help to fight certain kinds of cancer, and reduce some other signs of ageing through its antioxidant action.

There is very strong evidence that tea can help protect against heart disease, probably thanks to the same antioxidant chemicals, although other mechanisms may also be important.

There is also evidence that tea, in particular green and Oolong tea, can aid slimming; several studies have backed this up, although the strength and indeed the existence of the effect is still disputed.

Tea also seems to be good for your teeth, probably partly thanks to its antibacterial properties, and at least one study has suggested that it can reduce flatulence."

Happy 50th Independence Day!

I attended a triple birthday party at a cousin's place last night. the food was great, company was great, what else can i ask for? hehe. I seriously think i gained like 5pounds just from last night. Tomorrow night is the Liew family's annual BBQ. But before that, in the afternoon, after church there is a potluck.. so you see, tomorrow's business is all about food mwahahaha. Im worried. hmm..
The other day, me and my bro went out and when the traffic light was red, i noticed a bus infront of us having those stickers on its window like the 'Intel Inside' kind of logo. When i look carefully.. it was 'Bugis Inside' mwahahaha!! That was like, the funniest thing ive seen this week.


To all of ya.. Happy 50 years of Independence and another 50 years more to come! I have read some blogger's 'merdeka-post' huiyoo.. hebat sekali donk! I'll be the first one to admit that i am not that patriotic. Its not that i dont love or appreciate the country, but this is just who i am. But at least i have tried la kan.. hehe. Baaa.. Happy Merdeka ya'll!!

Sappy Love Song



All I hear is raindrops falling on the rooftop
Oh baby, tell me why’d you have to go
‘Cause this pain I feel it won’t go away
And today I’m officially missin’ you

I thought that from this heartache, I could escape
But I’ve fronted it long enough to know
There ain’t no way
And today I’m officially missing you

can’t nobody do it like you
Said every little thing you do, hey, baby
Said it stays on my mind
And I’m officially

All I do is lay around, two years full of tears
From looking at your face on the wall (face on the wall)
Just a week ago you were my baby
Now I don’t even know you at all,
I don’t know you at all

Well, I wish that you would call me right now
So that I could get through to you somehow
But I guess it’s safe to say, baby
Safe to say that I’m officially missin’ you

Well, I thought I could just get over you, baby
But I see that's something I just can’t do
From the way you would hold me
To the sweet things you told me
I just can’t find a way to let go of you

Everything about this vid & song reminds me of the past but just like time passes on, i have moved on. But every now and then when i miss someone, this song is my refuge.

Nolita Fairytale



Ive always been a fan of Vanessa Carlton and this song, i must say is 10x much better than A 1000 miles. I at first thought it was "A 1000 miles" vid for the first 5 sec hehe. I see some kind of revenge at the beginning of the vid?!

Whatever U Like



New one from Nicole Scherzinger. Better known as the singer of PCD. The song is amazing. love it! but the vid is not right..kinda retarded, in short i hate the vid. try listen to the ending hook.. i particularly like that part the most.

I got it from my mama



I gotta admit, this song is contagious! it got me singing to the hook "i got it from my mama" like, everywhere!

tell me where u got ur body from i got it from my mama i got it from my mama i got it got it!

Daym! do I have to say it again?!?

Who are you?

Ive been indulging myself with CSI's. I have the complete season of CSI Las Vegas, Miami & New York..woohoo! I now memorize CSI Las vegas' theme song, the "who are you-u..u-u" hahaha. I like Las vegas a mile far than the other two installments. To know more about CSI LV, click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CSI:_Crime_Scene_Investigation and it'll tell you about all the characters played by each one of them. I like Grissom's character the most. He is so pintar! Grissom is played by William Peterson. When i saw episode one of Season 1, i was like "Ohh.. so that is how everything started!" I like watching CSI coz it makes the brain to think, it doesnt remain stagnant. Talk about being brain-stagnant, i dread going to Advance Statistics classes every week. I dont learn a thing! its not that i dont pay attention to what the lecturer is talking in front, its just so damn hard, with all the formulas..i think theres like 5 formulas being shown every 2 seconds and im not saying the lecturer is a bad lecturer, he's just a liiiiittttlllee bit bad at teaching the subject. Oh, and have i mentioned that the textbook is no good also? not user-friendly at all. I better stop now, i know ya'll dont want to read my complaints right? hehe
.
So, You.. have a nice day ahead!

Mondays

Today was a tiring day. I woke up at 7.45am, left the house at 9am and got back at 5pm. It's not that i went to work or anything (me??? working?? ..i dont think so. well, at least for now la hehe) I left home early coz my siblings had stuffs to attend to. Me? well, i tagged along just because i hate being along at home. After lunch at the airport, we parted ways with Josie.. she is flying to Labuan for an audit assignment there for four days.
.
I went to karamunsing today to buy some empty dvds for my CSIs. I was looking for dvds that are bigger than 4.7gb and i did found some but it was sooo expensive. like, rm12.90 each. Its expensive coz im planning to buy like, 10 dvds. The 4.7gb dvds ofcourse la cheap but my CSIs cant fit in it :-( i guess i'll have to copy them to my PC lah.. sampai mana ja yang muat.
.
I am subscribing to e-diets newsletters and i just received an email on "keeping the weight off permanently" but i havent read it hehe. I think these kind of newsletters are useful, especially for people like me! Lately, i have been so malas to exercise. Today im skipping exercise agian coz i think ive had enough exercising jalan2 today :-P
.
Some of you asked me why a new start? Do you ever get the feeling where you just dont know what you're doing anymore and everything that you see just dont make sense anymore? aahh.. that was what i was feeling. I overhauled my room, made some re-arranging to it, deleted old, unwanted e-mails in my inbox, delete pictures (yes.. pictures! those that tick me off). Luckily i didnt cut my hair! hahaha. Lastly, delete the old blog. After doing all that, i surprisingly feel much better. Like the void has been filled, or something like that. So, have i answered your Q about starting anew? hehe..

Ive been Simpsonized!


If you want to get Simpsonized just like me and all the other rest of the people in the world, go to
http://www.simpsonizeme.com/ and you'll be looking like the simpsons characters. The above picture is me, after being simpsonized. I was looking like this before the transformation:

Any similarities? no? yea, i dont think so too hehe.

A fresh start

If u guys havent notice, i have deleted the old blog. I am starting a new one.. a fresh start la kaka. Here are some of the pictures that were featured on the last one (the ones that i really.. really like)

with Zaq Salazar, lead vocalist extraordinare of the band, Tribe of Levi.
The guy im with is Reeve (a sweetheart), rapper of the same band, Tribe of Levi. The next picture is Gracie Alonzo of Hip 2 Soul. These two bands are the two bands that me & my bro went to see on our last night in the Philippines. Bedrock (malate) was just a few feet from where we were staying during our 1 week stay there.. lucky us!
.
And here's one pic i took outside my house, which turned out to be quite pleasing for the eyes (considering im not really that good nor knowledgable in photography):

Aight, i think thats about it. will post more soon so keep tuning in, ya!
