Hair Me-me

Thank you so much everyone for wishing me on my birthday! It’s so heartwarming for me to see so many birthday wishes in the comment section. Not to mention the calls and sms. Thanks thanks and thanks.

I got tagged by Ringo for a hair me-me.

Doing this me-me made me realise something. I’m too…SAFE.

I haven’t dyed my hair since year 2000. I maintained long hair for almost a decade and only recently had them chopped. And now I’m growing out my hair again. Don’t think I’ll ever curl my hair again too. I’m forever doomed as a typical straight, long haired chinese girl. Not that the bf minds, why do men like long hair so much? Check out my post in moNSTerblog to see what I mean.

So after searching high and low, I still couldn’t fulfill the requirement of 8 different hairstyles. So at the expense of the integrity of the me-me, here are 7 instead of 8 different hairstyles for your enjoyment.

1998-2004: Long straight hair for many years.

2002: Added a green hair and fuschia (not visible) hair extension.

Late 2005: Curled my hair. Big mistake.

Mid-2006: Pigtails by Mom during a bonding session. Please ignore the pimple and pale face.

Late 2006: Made the ultimate sacrifice. Transformed my waist-length hair to a bob. But I loved it.

Late 2006: Barely 2 weeks later, I cut my hair again and did the unthinkable. I layered my hair after 8 years. Hated it.

2007: Grew it out a bit and got the Victoria Beckham-ish bob. Love-hate relationship.

And that’s all. Thanks

ZOMG I’m 23!

I’m officially approaching the mid-20s. 23 is such a foreign number to me, I still refer to myself as a 21 year old in conversations, it’s so embarassing. Funny though, I don’t feel any different from 1 or 2 years ago. I still feel like a spoilt little girl (which I am haha). Celebrated my birthday in the best way possible, with my family and boyfriend.

First birthday card of the year.

My parents bought me nice Korean dinner, my brothers bought me a cheesecake and my boo bought me 4 presents: 3 books (which I totally want, and they have nothing to do with a pre-pubescent wizard boy), an electronic toothbrush (which I have wanted for the longest time but never got around to buy it,so romantic right?), an epilator (an obvious attempt to stop me from using his shaver lololol) and a Boss perfume (love the scent, absolutely love the bottle).

Korean dinner courtesy of the folks.

Birthday cake from the sibs.

The very first birthday present I got that I can still remember today was a Barbie. I had bugged my Dad incessantly for it. I ended up cutting all its hair off in an attempt to give a boyfriend to my new Hawaiian Barbie the year after. After about 3 Barbies, I outgrew them and began to ask for the nerdiest birthday gifts. Things like microscope set (if you recognised the ones in Toys R Us today, well, they haven’t changed at all), encyclopedias and freakin’ Saidina game (local version of Monopoly). Then I read my uncle’s Guinness Book of Records, an edition from the early 70s.

For a few years, all I ever wanted every year was that year’s edition of Guinness World of Records. My addiction stopped at 1996, IMHO the greatest edition of the book ever. Robert Wadlow was the tallest man that ever lived then. The most expensive hotel then was MGM in Las Vegas. And Pulau Batu Hairan was the newest island in the world then ;)

The 1996 edition had a feature of silly record attempts on its last page. Sadly, many of those “silly record attempts” have been passed off as real record attempts on the television series nowadays.

In 1996, I also received my very first computer. A Compaq Presario, with 1.15g hdd. And the following year I got Internet dialup connection. Throw in some pretty chronic Internet/mIRC addiction, poor self esteem and teenage angst and you get a totally f-up teenager. It is due to this phase that I hope I will never get a daughter in the future.

Anyway, I’ve grown so much since, mentally and horizontally. I met my bf, whom I will credit for my fabulous life. He centres me, and he had a hand in helping me and Mom communicate. My relationship with my Dad and brothers also got so much better because I’ve become a much tolerable person.

Our heights are completely disproportionate to our age.

Boo and birthday girl.

At this point, I’m rediscovering myself again. Finding out what I really want and setting out to do it. I’ve never felt so sure about what I wanted and I feel it now. The best thing is, I know I can just take a chance and if things don’t go as I desire, my family and bf will always be there to catch me and love me for being a goof.

Birthday presents!

Happy Birthday to me!

Jangan Togel

An old friend who used to study in Ohio told me about his naked football game on his graduation day. Everyone stripped down to nothing and just started to play football, or better known as soccer in US of A. Men AND women alike. Suffice to say, there were more balls than one that day. Eversince I’ve listened to his story, I’ve not stopped wondering whether such ritual would ever take off in Malaysia.

Jangan togel? A phrase totally foreign to me till I saw it on my Nuffnang ad.


Probably the closest thing to naked football that we can ever get here. Well, basically the phrase “jangan togel” is in reference to a local football subculture where the first team to concede a goal would have to play the rest of the game topless. Seriously, how could something so delicious escape my knowledge?

I’m glad that Nike has picked up this local football ritual. Otherwise I would still be residing in the dark. The site is downright impressive! There are videos for you to watch should you want to understand more about “Jangan Togel“, music and wallpaper downloads. The comic like graphics are really cool, I hope it’s done by a local artist.

I’m going to pay a little more attention from now on, check out the local football field a little more often. Watch some aspiring Beckhams flaunt their footwork and glorious abs. Who cares if they’re the n00bs in the first place?
