GO FIERCE.

1. Well, I've finally finished watching the series The Fierce Wife on Shuang Xing. Didn't catch all the episodes but enough to know the who's and what's and why's. It's good. All very reasonable and logical. Unlike most other dramas, especially the lovey dovey ones. Nuh uh. Not my taste anymore. I'm so past the tween obsession.


And well.. Loving Sonia Sui for the moment (because she's gorgeous and is pretty good acting) :D Yes, that's one of my fave pics from her. I've got a penchant for b&w photography. :D

I'm loving this song from the show. Never heard of the singer before but she's good. :)


2. Righto. I've also finished reading Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. It's about cloning and they clone humans like they're sheep and finally harvesting their organs until they die to let others live. Some clones get a childhood and decent education until they're old enough to be donors while at other parts of the world, some clones live like animals. It's an awesome read. Though really sad at the end. I love books that leave me thinking for a while. Food for thought?



I want to watch the movie *it's got Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan!!!!!!!!!* but.. It's not aired here. Anyone got ideas where to watch it online?


3. I finally got to watch Rise of the Planet of the Apes today! Gosh, and I'd thought I was in for a lot of gruesome ape killing people kinda stuff, but no. It was really good. Caesar stole the show! I mean, from the trailers and posters you'd think he turned into a crazy ape bent for vengeance after feeling betrayed and getting all creeped out by his menacing looks. BUT NOOOOOO (his favourite word, yes he can speak too) he's kinda nice. He even got his other allies to not kill the innocent. The ending was really fitting. Maybe a sequel? I can't imagine anything other than the humans all dying by that drug virus and apes taking over the world. But that doesn't sound like a good movie? Also. I'm now very, very scared of Alzheimer's. I can't imagine what it's like to lose your mind like that. Tragic.

4. After my piano exam, it's time to gear up for my SPM. No more excuses to not study. Must be motivated!!


Feeling a bit nostalgic at the moment. Gui Boratto suits me just fine for now.

100th Escapade

note: my 100th post!!!

I finally took my grade 8 practical exam @ Prince Hotel yesterday! Gosh, it was so nerve wrecking. It went well at first but then... didn't nailed it. Don't think I'm gonna take another piano exam anymore. It sure feels weird, going back home and having the urge to practice but then realising I don't have to anymore.

Well.. Let bygones be bygones. At least I had a great day munching on bread and stuff at Levain. It's my first time there and I wanna go back there again! Love the cozy ambience and pretty decor. The food looks scrumptious! Especially the dessert counter. Haven't tried any of their cakes or macaroons yet. NEXT TIME. :D
























The item most worth having has got to be the cream of mushroom and chicken? It reminds me of Dome's, the difference is it's got chicken in it. And it's also half the price of Dome's with just the same serving. If I were to eat up the whole thing I wouldn't need to have anything else. So, best to just share it with someone else so you can have enough appetite for other stuff ;p

Lastly, to end my post with Priscilla Ahn. I love her voice. Pure and lightening. And no, I did not watch Bride Wars to know about her. Credits to a Tumblr friend who posted this.


P.S. I changed my template, made some changes to the fonts.. You like?
