Boy Girl, big deal

Listening to Kylie Minogue's - Wow

In my defense, I did warned you I was going to blog whenever I feel like it. And apparently, I feel like blogging everyday... even when there's no bloody substance in it.

Screw this. Went to Section 14 with mah baby (who else) today, and had my usual awesome Hakka Mee *drools*. I've had that prolly one too many time a person can count, and I'm still having images of it in my head. *drools* again... On our way to the hawkers, we discussed about swapping genders - something like that, and asked each other, what would it be like if we change our genders with the opposite, for a day?

Me: I want a guy, to try and carry a handbag with all the stuffs inside thats not his!
Sweets: I want a girl, to try and be more relaxed, and not tensed more often than boys.
Me: I want a guy, to try wearing heels for one whole day!
Sweets: It would be cool to be a girl, and be able to eat and try all the food especially desserts because girls LIKES to try a lot of things.
Me: I want to see a guy, waking up extra early in the morning just to put on makeup and what hair to fix on that day! It's so hard!
Sweets: I want a girl, to appreciate the casual short pants look without saying it's not decent!

Both of us were, okay I lied, only I was so enthusiast talking about all the things I'd wish for a guy to see or experience what a day in girl's life feels like - and also experience life through guy's eyes! Though the conversation might sound abit sarcastic coming from both of us, but we weren't because sweetheart thinks it's especially important to not talk about certain issues which involves women, because we are slowly - becoming, the superior gender no matter how hard we try to deny it.

Okay, I admit at times, I personally think some of the decisions women make are much more mature, reasoned and well-thought of with at the other extreme, some of the decision women make are emotionally influenced, impulsive and inconsistent. And just like what Daren says, which I agree, sometimes I wish I could be less tensed, less worrysome, less emotional at times, because it really helps! Which leads this post to...

I meditated today! NO SHIT. And I shall talk to you about it in abit of my experience. I used to meditate when I was in high school, but now I've become too stressed with every single detail in my life (ah ha!), I haven't been doing much 'relaxing' for so damn long. So here're few stuffs you really need to know about meditation, it's not just the monks doing it, it's really really good, it's really not as easy as it looks and it's (actually) fun!

If you're too stressed out, the cheapest way is this - like seriously. Coming back to women being stressed all the time, as I tried to meditate today - after 5 minutes of relaxing I realized my eyebrows were still frowning! Argh! I tried fixing it manually by pressing the upper part of my face to relax my face, but I couldn't! It took me about 10 minutes to just chill to finally be able to relax my face. And I realized...

I (or for some women too maybe) like(s) to try too hard. Whether it comes to pleasing our other partner, our wardrobe, our hair, our relationships, our physique, our assignments, our time management or the food we cook, our workload, our friend's criticisms, our path in future - and believe me when I say this our Facebook's pictures or profiles, almost everything I can think of!

If I were (this IS the correct english dah-lings) a boy for a day - I'd wear short pants, tee that says 'If I say you have a hot body would you hold it against me' and slippers the whole day. I'd enjoy the cheaper drinks which are beer and actually love it, I'd watch every other sports thats playing on TV and curses freely, I'd try stand up peeing and starts moving 'it' uncontrollably just to see how cool it looks like, I would play games that I'm good and bad at, I'd wait for my sayang to cook for me, I won't pay for the girls because I'm not that stupid cause I hate chivalry, I won't get into a relationship because it looks so hard, I have the right to EAT MORE! and last but not least blardy hell if I'm not a gentleman I won't follow the rules - because when I was a woman I expected rules to be changed too!

No, no this is not a post to degrade the men - these are the things I seeeeereeeeously want to do if I'm a boy! Which makes it so much easier to understand why some men can be jerks or ignorant for that matter are easier to become, than good. I mean if guys would experience what women feels that would probably give them a better perspective why we're like this. Right?

What would you do?

And it starts now

Listening to Dean Martin- Memories are made of This

"What are you going to do tonight?"
"...I. Don't. Know"
"...that's like the best answer ever."

I'm drugged with music right now, since I have a bucketfull of free time, I just ransacked my brother's playlist - and seriously, no like really, he's got THE BEST playlist ever. He's got Bob Dylan, to Bob Marley to Love Actually's soundtracks, to Duffy and to Crush On You to a box of CDs that I'm just waiting for the right moment to play 'em. Oh, and I'm officially on holiday now. It's not so special, it's only just...


Okay, that sounded mean and bitchy. I'm sorry. I'm just so glad I'm on holidays now, but I reckon this excitement will be over in few more days 'cause waking up late everyday would wear off sooner or later right? Which means, it's time to unveil my things to do list! *jeng jeng jeng!*

1. Pepper Ann. I'm not going to hyperlink this word so please Google or Youtube it!

2. Read books! Thanks to my beautiful baby and friends, I have few books to keep me company this break. Including - Archie's!

3. Lose Weight/ Diet. (If you can't beat them, join them!)

4. Games. Computer, handphone (hahahaha- loser) or in any other form I shall seek for the silliest most easiest (oh no I didn't) game in the world to play.

5. Blogging. Prepare to be constantly updated or read (no force) about me.

6. Shopping. Probably in KK, because mummy will be there.... She gives... advices! :D

7. Work. I'm still trying to figure out how to go about this one, because when I'm back from Sabah it'll probably be quite late to opt for a part time or internship. So I will talk to mum about this and ask for her views - 'cause she's blunt, and she's my mum! (I can so rhymekan)

8. Spend time with my friends both in KK and KL!

9. Clubbing/ Partying

10. not in that order... and MORE.

I'm set! Now I just need to ask God to rain cash in my room. *looks up the sky*

I have a confession to make. I had pizza for lunch just now. Wait, wait, I have a valid explanation to this. Only because I've been craving for Dominoes Pizza for almost a month now and because I've been so busy this whole November, Pizza was delayed, until baby was incredibly sweet, he somewhat surprised me to eat pizza with me today. And you know what, the whole time I've been craving for pizza, I see delivery motors, I see advertisements, people around me eating pizzas... Cripes! Makes the wait much more worth it! I was so happy, as I purposely starved myself by not munching (big deal) anything before it, plus we watched Made of Honour together with pizzas!

Thanks baby you're the best, wuv you.

Oh and you know what I just realised, blogging is so much more fun to read if everything is exaggarated. You know, like the use of 'for the 300th million times' and 'I'm going to smother myself with the lecture notes'- sounds..familiar. Right? I think everyone's beginning to use such words to make things more interesting, even if! all they did for that particular day was breakfast, class, lunch and dinner. The best part of our everyday lives has GOT to be the conversations we had HOWEVER, we choose events over anything with tons of pictures in between. Multimodality? oh, I'm looking for the ultimate peace sign necklace. Since most of my necklaces here are mixed and matched by meself, I don't mind just getting the pendant and mix around with it. I really, want a peace sign necklace! I'll look high and low, for the perfect one. I will!

One last thing that adds up to this really random and (of course) scattered post: I'm beginning to love cooking. I've been watching a lot of Asian Food Channel lately, it excites me more and more for the next cook, because I experiment by myself most of the time, and I think I'm ready to cook for my family when I'm back. Shall I warn them first?

Till then:

Happy Holidays my dear classmates!

Love, Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie

Passions' Photoshoot

Last week Calyn called me up for a photoshoot, and I contemplated on saying yes at first because I don't approve of sexy or obscene shootings/ photos of myself. But when Calyn told me I get to dress-up myself, I excitedly said yes! I'm definitely much more comfortable with my own clothings.

Anyway, when her colleague called me up to confirm with me the details and what not, I asked her whether I can bring Daren with me to the photoshoot, and guess what, she asked him to take part as well! Hahaha. He was dragged into it, without being able to say no! :)

Me: baby, I have something to tell you.
Baby: what ar.
Me: Tomorrow you're taking part on the photoshoot as well.
Baby: ..... (10 seconds of silence)
Me: Baby?
Baby: Oh my God. I AM DAMN SHY.

All I can share with you guys about the spread are; it'll be on December Issue of PASSIONS, it's about clubbing and partying, it's about youth-ism, and of some new year's resolutions. The photoshoot went tiringly well. It took about at least two to three hours to get our hair and makeup done. Both Daren and I didn't have our lunch, so we were having terrible headaches after hours of waiting for the group shot, when everyone was done.

The shot was taken at Space Club in Heritage Row. It's quite funky actually, and the entrance is... well, not that obvious. I'm not sure whether thats a good thing, but Daren and I were searching for the entrance door which was apparently, underneath Cynna, and in between the Loft and the mamak Bukharry's. It was this two tiny glass doors. Rather unique actually.

I was the first to shoot. Here are some of the pics, though I didn't manage to take pictures of myself when I was snapped away. I'm really tired, the whole thing ended around 6.30pm, and I was there since 2pm. Tired. Tired.

Calyn (the Ihopemybossdoesn'tseethis look)

See, see.

Very, very over the top makeup!

Handsome, beb! (he's so going to kill me)

I purposely took this shot, to show the gorgeous art!

"Which one should I get for this morning..."

The pretty, shiny pillows! :)

After everything was done, we left the place with seriously not freaking kidding you heavy makeup walking around the streets of KL. After 5 minutes of passing heavy lookers, I couldn't take it, I took off my fake eyelashes and start scrubbing my makeup off - and failed. It was too thick! We went and have dinner after that, and well.. let's just say I was probably the most coloured one in SS2 last night.

Last but not least, I'm so proud of my baby! He'll be published! :)

I'm sorry the group shot is fugly, this the best Calyn can get and I tried photoshopping it! :(

Group Shot (L-R) Dee, Jesslyn, Daren, me, Natasha, Akmir (?) & Nana.

Why aren't you updating your blog?

I've started on my last assignment, and honestly, I kinda like it. The whole trial and error is quite cool actually. Well, of course if you must know I've been sitting on this chair for at least (plus minus) 6 hours. I really don't mind, because I really learn how to do html and css from this assignment, plus I have to finish this work by Tuesday and worry about Business for a week. Yes, for a freaking week, because I really really can't afford to fail. If I fail, I'd smother myself with the business lecture notes because!; I have to see that Cruella again.

Since none of you actually gives a damn, I shall stop. Blood pressure gets higher when I talk about it. Anyway, it's only 12something but everyone else is already fast asleep. Me on the other hand is singing Britney's Womanizer.

I'm quite excited for this afternoon's shoot. I don't really know how big or small will my face gets published, or even whether it will make the cut, I'm still pretty excited! It's kinda like the first. You know what they say, a girl should go for at least one photoshoot in their life. Hope this will be good!

My brother's sleeping with me tonight, because he's going off for some 3 weeks (fuyo) ceramah plus jungle trekking before he starts on his 5 years journey as a government doctor. These people, will for sure be attending boring seminars and lectures, and that leaves me to question the whole idea of jungle trekking. I mean, I'm assuming this concept works the same way as the one we did for primary school to 'eratkan tali-silaturahim', but I'm still quite uncertain with this whole idea.

You know what they should do, they should leave them in the woods and let them survive on their own. Which means, all they can have in their bags are medicine and their clothes. That would be cool, because if they'll be posted at rural areas then they can really make this to good use. And start making herbs out of leaves and animals. No, I'm not making fun of this concept, I really mean they should do that! You know, pushing the limits, it would be so awesome.

I don't know why, but I'm very brutal with junk food nowadays. This weekend alone, I've eaten so much of Cadburry's dark chocolate, Marks & Spencer's cookies, Apple Pie, Twiggies, slices of cheese and chocolate cakes, and dammit I bought Pringles. Expect to see me all flabby this March. Someone should really stop me, you know the 'a moment on your lips is a moment on your hips' thing. It's true! *cries* It's not even funny anymore :(

I'm trying to avoid making Christmas wishlists, it's Fantastical and it leaves me wanting more! This Christmas, I shall be humble and definitely not greedy. I shall eat what my tummy says, and not what my eyes are attracted to. I shall spend time with my love ones, instead of sleeping the whole day. I shall, do it.

I'm off to sleep now. Bye!

2 more weeks!

While Sweets was doing his IPD Assignment just now, I was pumped up blogging about cooking and food, because welll, I'm all about food. Now, my eyes are all droopy and I'm forcing myself to listen to some "clubbing" songs. Omg, NERD's Everybody Nose is too awesome not to replay it over and over again. Serious shit. It's quite of an awkward song, but I have to admit the beat makes me realise how I miss clubbing so much. I miss the loud music, I miss dancing with sweets and my girlfriends, I miss drinking, I miss dressing up from head to toe, I just miss having night outs! UNIVERSITY is robbing my life away. *asfdkasjdfchnsdh!*

Anyway, that aside. I must always remember, that the 3 months holiday is in two weeks time. Three blardy months people! Three! THREE! It's like insanely super cool, and I'm already scratching my head thinking what to do; KK (definaately), part time/internship (most likely) and open my arms wide open and fall to the bed. Oh Mercy, Lepak! Probably shop here and there, something for christmas, and something for the end of the year (we always have excuses) just to feel all girly, "girly" again.

If I'm looking for a job, I want something like an Events Freelancer, ifff it's possible. I know it's not easy to get these kinda jobs, but I really hope I could, plus I don't have a car so I don't know whether doing events would be a good idea. Gracious, imagine taking cabs at 1am or something. *grits teeth*

Omg, today Brian and Shaun scared the crap out of me. They were saying things about BCB (the subject that's used as a tool to obstruct students from going next semester - like seriously) and how their failure was so dissapointing and that everyone else failed the subject as well. That ruined a quarter of my day because I was thinking about it too much. I can't afford to fail anything, including this God forsaken subject, I can't.

One more assignment, and one last exam. Hang in there. The revenge of Lumix Panasonic and the absolutely free Jacqkie (I hope) is coming :)

F word!

Listening to Astro 865- Jazz

I really tried, really tried to. I was keeping myself busy by washing my clothes, sweeping my room floor, watching Hannah Montana and checking people's photos on Facebook, the evil-blogging spirit still manage to entice me to update! Grr.

I am supposed to update my "Academic Blog" but I couldn't because those stuffs are too darn boring so I decided to prostinate for abit. For goodness sake, I'd have to freaking reference my post! Okay, okay enough about my work. It seems like everyone else has been blogging about assignments, and school our readers would probably feel our sorrow.

After much learning about blogging phenomenon, and how it has affect people and their lives, I guess making my blog public to the eyes of the most weirdest or coolest people in the world, could only mean one thing; just leave it to their interpretation. Frankly, I'm not really worried or scared when strangers read my blog, I actually feel more awkward when people who knows me read about me, and uses that priviledge to ask me or harrass me about it. I'm not really comfortable talking about the things I talk about in my blog, to some people because words are easier described when you don't have many facial expressions focusing on you. It's tough, isn't it?

Conclusion is, hello, everyone :)

Last week was my first anniversary with sweets. Watched Mamma Mia!, had awesome cake in Pastis Gardens. After much talking, and reminiscing of sweet memories (not that it has been SO long, hehe) we went for dinner at Spaghetti since we got an RM10 voucher. Food was great, I swear that place really reminded me of a typical American bar - minus the families with toddlers of course.

Matching slippers!

Here comes the political Jacqkie. I'm not particularly interested in talking about the politics thats apparently making the world go round right now, but truth is, somehow politics do make the papers now interesting (not, worth it) to read. Especially, when Obama's daughters were on the focus when they got themselves dogs (yes, anjing) , this after when he won. Like, what? That's a news, itself? But I'm glad he won, not because everyone else is rooting for him, or because he allows gay marriages or he's black but because I think America is, and always will be a Democratic country. Not through the media, but the kids, and families there practice values that are much cooler than us. Though he's a junior, he's got all his life to fix or improve USA with help and assistance with his comrades in the White House.

I'm currently OBSESSED with online tv. Every damn subject I have in Lab, my fingers will automatically type the website and I'm there listening to lecture, while streaming the video. Gosh, shame on you jacqkie. Shame! Oh, lipstick jungle is tha' bomb by the way. All three women look so ridiculously hot in their 40s you'd love all the repetitive drama thats clinging them. Though it happens to their menopausy life over, and over, and over again. No shit!

I should stop cursing too. All the F words, coming out ready. *makes sad face* I never intend or want to curse, it's just not cool la. I used to use Fudge, now fudge sounds like food. I mean. You know actually sounds like food to me.
