Blockbuster season is upon us (: and everyone knows I looooove a good movie. (Although I really hate paying 10 bucks every time I want to watch one.)

First up was Iron Man, 

which was bloody fantastic. I loved everything about it, from the slightly feasible storyline, to the foxy Robert Downey Jr., to the way Iron Man flies like a ballerina in a music box. It was amazing and I told everyone I know to go watch it. Most of them loved it too.

If you haven’t watched it yet (what a loser), too bad you’ve missed your chance to watch it on the big screen, this movie is just big screen material, watch it on your pathetic plasma tv anyways. Its totally one of those must watch kind of movies.

Next up is one that I’m watching TONIGHT (: (: (:

Since the end of Sex and the city, the series, I’ve rewatched it a gazillion times and now its a movie! I’ve been waiting for this day since I first heard that this movie was in production. It’s not that I have very high hopes for a beautiful ending or anything, its just seeing my favorite characters together again, on a screen, being glam and having lots of sex, just the way I love them. Ooooooooh so excite. 

Next month, there’s The Incredible Hulk!!

I’m a HUGE Edward Norton fan, like HUGE, so I’m really excited about this one. I have yet to watch a single remake of The Hulk, I always thought it was kind of lame, so I’m all sorts of ready to watch this one. (:

Last but not least on my must watch list, is

The Dark Knight. Oh Heath, I love you. That’s the main reason I’m going to watch this. I was excited when he got cast as a very twisted, sinister Joker, now I just want to watch him again, in the last movie that he acted in. Its really very very sad that he’s gone. Sigh.

Other movies that I want to catch (but seriously don’t want to pay 10 dollars for) are:

Its just damn cute. And its coming out on my birthday. Lol.

And I’ve always been a fan of fantasy. 

So that more or less rounds up what I’m looking forward to movie-wise this blockbuster season. I’m sure that every other person I know is looking forward to exactly the same movies, so let’s go catch a movie sometime mates. (:

When I was younger (like 13 years old) I wanted to grow up to be exactly who I am right now. Doing a degree, having great friends, partying all over the place and having lots of fun.

So why do I sometimes feel so unsuccessful? Like is there really a need to work from 9am-5pm during my holidays so I’ll be productive, or do I really need to find a boyfriend so I won’t be an old maid, you know useless stuff like that.

I’m great, really, but people around me seem to think that I’m not. They say that I need more money, more love, more whatever. I always tell myself not to care about these people, what do they know anyways? But it just becomes a little voice in you, questioning, thinking, wondering if they are right. I don’t know. Are they?

Bowler hats, girls with nice legs and short hair, mad boys jumping around and bowler shoes, all looks well in hipster Ipod Land. 


It looks like I’m not the only one who loves The Ting Tings.

Life in black & white

I ❤ black and white magazine features. So pretty.

I’ve finally gotten down to making birthday plans, cleaning my drawers and cupboards, reading books and doing my toenails. I love the holidays, but I’ve got a feeling that I’ll get bored soon.

So I’m gg to try and find myself another part time job. But I only have a month from June 15th to mid July to work, if anyone reading this has something for me to do (I’ll do anything paying $7/more an hour, except telemarketing) do tell. Thanks!

Its so hot outside, I think I’m just going to go to Vivo and read at Starbucks or something, I’m sweating although I’m not doing anything. Global warming sucks.

They call me ‘quiet girl’

but I’m a riot

That’s not my name – The Ting Tings

❤ them, favourite new band of 2008. So a week has gone past since my exams ended, and I am finally beginning to feel like I’ve rested enough. My eyebags are not going away though, its a little bit worrying. When I was younger, after a week of insufficient sleep, all I had to do was sleep for like 12 hrs on one day and it’ll be gone. I’ve been sleeping for about 8 hours everyday this week, and they show no sign of vanishing. Shit. I think I need to start using an eye cream. The perils of age. 

Today I was talking to a friend about how men get better looking with age, but for women everything more or less goes downhill after 27 (a.k.a. the age that women get married and have babies), what a pain. Not all of us are superhuman bitches who look hotter then ever after having 3 divorces and 10 babies. So girlies, these are the best looking years of our life, use them well.

“Desperate times call for desperate measures, its time to put your worries down and your legs up.” (: I’ve been watching ALOT of Will&Grace.

This is what I sound like

( A small intro: The taller guy in the white shirt is Clay, the hot chick in the pink top is me, next to me in blue is Debbie, Germaine is in her slutty cheongsam and Eugene is in the black Fcuk)

We did it! We finished our exams and we’re all still alive. (: (: (: (:  6 weeks of super hardcore studying is fucking gross and tiring.  Our body clocks are fucked, our skin is fucked and we need to detox & diet from all the Macdonalds and Burger King studying sessions, hopefully our grades will be worthy of all the effort that we’ve put in.

So we went to Zouk to celebrate the fact that we’ve just finished our first year, its honestly flown by and thank goodness I’ve made friends who are such nerds (: 


Call me! Book me! Lets go out and party!

My exams finish on Friday, and I can’t wait to get my life back. This past 5 weeks have been very very taxing to say the least.

Kitsune Maison is going to be at Zouk this Friday, and I really want to go. I don’t know if Mavis will be back from her little Krabi trip by then. I heard that they will also be here at the end of the month for another gig, this time at Butter. I don’t mind going for both. I lovelovelove Kitsune music, srsly. Call me a hipster wannabe or whatever shit just don’t look at me that way ’cause I know you think I’m hot. 

I have a paper tomorrow at 2pm. I have lost all motivation. I just want it to be over. Friday, come quick.
