Birthday Weekends

Mood: 46_Enthralled happy

My birthday passed weeks ago but here are some pictures! Thank you to family and friends for the greetings. It was also my brother’s, Baekhyun’s and Naomi Scott’s (Power Rangers 2017’s Kimberly Hart) birthday too!

 My brother decided to treat me to see Guardians Of The Galaxy. All I can say is that, I love the songs and the third act of the movie. It was bittersweet but I love it. I guess that’s probably the first time I ever cried during an MCU movie.

 In-game me also celebrated her birthday. My favorite girls came to the party. How sweet of them. Becky was suppose to move at the end of the month, but she decides to stick around on her own. I wanted her to move because her house is at the wrong place. Maybe next time. I like Becky! It’s just that her house placement rubs me the wrong way.

 My friends kept wanted me to join them for dinner after I said that I’m off work by 10pm. We went to a new cafe (closes in one hour when we arrived LOL) and ordered sloppy joe beef wedges, I guess that’s what it’s called. It was so good! If I get the chance to go there again, I’ll probably order this one.

 Then we went to another restaurant which has an extending closing hour, and there were still a lot of people there at the time. I decided to order macaroni chicken salad.

The owl bag and pink watch were gifts from my parents. I have no idea who told them that I love owls (I love bears too) but hey, I’m not complaining. I love this bag. A little small though, the straps are short but I love it!

 The Captain America building blocks was a gift from my boss. He actually had no idea that he gave it to me on my birthday LOL! The finish product looks so cute! I misplaced a few parts at first. Finally, a Wonder Woman mopeez was a gift to myself. There were a few mopeez dolls available; Superman, Aquaman and Supergirl. I decided to get Wonder Woman because her move comes out later this week! Yay!!

Speaking of Wonder Woman, I’m so excited for the movie! I can’t believe the day is approaching close! I did not watch anymore trailers or TV spots after the release of Origin Trailer.  I will bring my Wonder Woman doll with me when I see the movie. I did that when I went to see Captain America Civil War last year and Funko Pop Batfleck for The Lego Batman movie. It’s Ramadan now. I will probably see Wonder Woman probably at 8pm or 9pm. Here’s hoping for the Wonder Woman popcorn and drink combo!

That’s all from me for now. Are you excited for Wonder Woman? Will you see it on the opening night?


On and off ‘relationship’ with Harry Potter

Mood: nostalgic

Between later last year and earlier this year, I was bored out of my mind at work. I can’t constantly play ACNL during work, so I start considering which movies I should watch. A few months prior, my cousins discussed with me that they have completed watching all eight Harry Potter movies. Then it dawned on me that it’s been so long since I talk and read about it. I kind of missed it. So, I decided to watch the movies from the beginning.

I have an on and off relationship-ish with Harry Potter. Back in school, only the cool kids read Harry Potter (at least that’s how I remember it). I was curious, very curious so I borrowed the first book from a classmate, she’s nice. Since I’m a casual fan of magic, I was delighted with the first book. I had no idea that the story was set during modern time but Hogwarts was during traditional times, which kind of makes sense. It described how different London and Hogwarts are. Then the first movie came out later in the year. It had huge impact! Harry Potter stationary, bags and toys were everywhere! I played the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone game on PlayStation which I really loved but never get to finish it. I read the books but stop sometime after the fifth book was released. I had no idea why I stopped. Probably anime influence was super strong at the time and I was in the Naruto fandom (I left later on because it got too much to me). Okay, maybe I’m the one who have an issue here.

I watched Screen Junkies’ Movie Fights – Harry Potter episode before I started to rewatch Harry Potter movies. This was to celebrate the release of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them movie worldwide. I enjoyed watching the debate and it got me excited about the fandom all over again. I remember a time when the Fantastic Beasts movie trailer was released during MTV Movie Award 2016 (I think), Harry Potter theme song (I don’t know the exact name of the song as I’m typing this, please forgive me) was at the end of the trailer and it gave me goosebumps. Man, do I miss that song.

After I completed watching the movies, at first I was numb (because there was a lot to take in) and then happy (because I feel accomplished, hehe…). I returned home from work to find whether I still have my Harry Potter books. To my delight, I still have them but to my horror, I lost the second book. When I browsed through the pages, they were yellow now (obviously), more than 10 years old and slightly battered because I remember I used to bring the first book everywhere alot of time. Right now, I’m in the process of re-reading the first book, and yes I bring it everywhere with me. It’s a little hard to juggle reading and playing ACNL since the game is in real time. I’m not too fond of time travelling in game, I mean I did a few times but it’s not favorable.

Oh right, I forgot to mentioned about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I did spoil myself on the story. Albus Potter was in Deathly Hallow Part 2 movie and I have a soft spot for him. I understand his worries at the end of the movie. I can’t say much about it since I did not read the book, only rely on information from wiki. It’ll be a while for me to get back to reading the books again. I mean, if I really can’t find Camber of Secrets, then I have to buy it again. The cover will probably be different. 😦 Speaking of the books, I saw a copy of Philosopher’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets illustrated books in Malay language a couple of months ago. They’re expensive but pretty.

I registered at Pottermore a few days back and I got sorted in Hufflepuff. It kind of makes sense to me. According to the website, my wand is an Alder, dragon heartstring, 12 and three-quaters inches. That’s interesting. I haven’t tried the Patronus quiz so I’m excited to see the result. I did try the same quiz on PlayBuzz; I was sorted in Ravenclaw and my patronus was a komodo dragon. 😯

I guess that is all from me for this entry. Are you a fan of Harry Potter fandom? Did you get sorted via Pottermore? What is your patronus?

Happy New Year 2017!

Mood: Excited photo excited.png excited

Happy New Year 2017 everyone! I hope everyone had a great get-together with family and friends during the countdown.

I did not do much, just play a little bit of ACNL, go to work and counting down to new years in ACNL haha! The suspense was killing me though because I often read other players’ ACNL diary blogpost of sort and I really wanted to be a part of this celebration in the game.

On the final two weeks of 2016, I’ve been fangirling on a semi-new (LOL) K-pop boyband called “NCT” (sub-units are NCT U, NCT 127 and NCT Dream). I got curious about them after watching an episode of Weekly Idol which they came as guests. I listened to their songs; “7th Sense” and “Firetruck” but I did not get to know all of the members. I’m only familiar with Taeyong because after SM Entertainment’s twitter post his picture (at that time he was introduced as a member of SM Rookies), I saved it in my iPad because he looks so cute and he’s Jaejoong(JYJ) and Luhan doppelganger! (now that picture was deleted because I need plenty of memory space and I never actually use his picture as my wallpaper LOL). Jaehyun (EXO’s Suho doppelganger) is my bias but I love everyone, even the ones who have not officially debut yet.

From there, I began searching for more videos of them and came across with their variety show called “NCT Life” which currently has four seasons now. The boys are so funny and adorable and I was impressed that they were not awkward for being in front of the camera. Then I discovered it was because they had a lot of video series in their trainee days as SM Rookies. That’s why they were fun to watch. Now I kind of want to collect their physical albums and some merchs (official and fanmade).

Korean Festival 2016

Mood: Optimistic photo optimistic.png fangirling

I attended Korean Festival on Oct 21st 2016. It was a three days event and I was glad that Friday was my day-off.

The highlight of the event was K-Tigers’ performances. I wanted to watch them in the first place and my budget was tight so I did not spend much. I think I only bought a Bungeo ppang (fish-shaped bread) that day…and a drink because I was so thirsty after screaming like a loony when K-Tigers performed my favorite songs.

The bungeo ppang was great. I really loved the ice-cream! It was soft and the toppings I had were crushed peanuts and sprinkles and they also added marshmallow. The marshmallow were a little hard though. I thought they were super soft. I requested the big size bungeo ppang so that I can share with my brothers. Initially, I wanted the nutella filling but it was sold out so my brother wanted the red bean filling instead. I chose vanilla flavored ice-cream. I would like to try another again but this time maybe I will opt for a small size. The small size has no filling, just the bread and ice-cream.

There were mini Korean film festival (or showings), food booth, electronics booth, photo booth and art booth (those are what I can recall). No, I did not take any pictures of myself at the festival because I don’t like doing it. I guess that habit cause an irritation towards my friends (or everyone else) who are the selfie freaks.

K-Tigers performed at 8 o’clock (if I’m not mistaken). People already went nuts when they arrived on stage…or peeking at the them from backstage. I recorded the video until my storage was full. Yea, that was not a good sign and I missed their BTS’ “Boys In Luv” performance (I watched it bunch of times on YouTube though). I literally screamed when they performed EXO’s “Overdose” and “Growl.” I did not expect that at all, I mean I did expect them to perform maybe at least one dance number. Can you imagine how I would behave if my favorite idols performed live on stage? I’d probably faint but I hope I won’t, or else I would miss the whole experience. I’ve posted a few K-Tigers’ videos on my Instagram. Now I understand the hardship the fansite admins out there had to face when they want to take good pictures/videos of the idols. They have mad skills, and better gadgets of course. My 16GB iPhone 5 just doesn’t cut it, haha!

It was a great experience for me. I would love to attend this event again next year, maybe I’ll have enough money to spend just at the festival. Maybe K-Tigers can perform again next year…or maybe…they can invite K-Pop idols as well. I suggest VIXX! (That’s quite a big wish)

Have any of you ever attend Korean festival (or any cultural festival)? How was your experience ? How big or small the event was?

*As of 26/10/2016, one member from K-Tigers liked my video on IG! Probably because he was at the center, haha!*

The DCEU is coming

Mood: 46_Enthralled excited

It’s now less than two months until “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and the beginning of DCEU. I’m very excited that DC movies finally has a large universe, like the MCU. I’ve been counting down to DCEU on Facebook but not in the typical, “50 days left,” “49 days left,” I post quotes from the movies (Man of Steel)/trailers (BvS and Suicide Squad). My friends are probably annoyed (I hope not though) to see daily DCEU movies’ quotes but hey, I like doing it. Maybe I should do it on my Twitter too. I may probably do the same thing as I’m counting down to “Captain America: Civil War.”

Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016

Mood: 46_Enthralled

2015 has been great, there were ups and downs. Working life is good too. I miss having to lazing around at home 24/7 but hey, when you have a job and get paid at the end of the month, it’s not so bad.

I’ve started watching CBS Supergirl and CW The Flash. I love both shows! I haven’t watch Supergirl EP6-EP9 (I think…), will get back to it soon-ish. The show always mention about Clark Kent and I find that cute. There was one scene where Kara and Clark were chatting on social media. Clark was like ” 🙂 ” How adorable is that! Also it’s nice to see a familiar face taking the role Supergirl. I loved Melissa Benoist since Glee.

Grant Gustin who was also on Glee played as the Flash. He was so evil as Sebastian but I loved him as Barry. Basically I love all the cast. I never thought I would get caught up with The Flash. Jay Garrick is a cutie! His appearance reminds me of Steve Rogers. Sigh… ❤

I’m so excited for 2016 because of “Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice” and “Captain America Civil War” (will be released on my birthday, yay!) movie. Both trailers were awesome! It’s good to see Bucky again. A few months ago I had a dream that I joined Steve Rogers to search for Bucky. I’ve been waiting for a part two of that dream. I was blown away when Wonder Woman appeared in BvS trailer and also that trinity shot… OMG, the best shot EVER! It’s like a dream come true. I always wanted to see live-action Superman and Batman but when they add Wonder Woman, AMAZING! A bonus! I feel bad for my wallet now.

Here’s hoping for 2016 to be just as great! 😀
