How To Make A Rilakkuma Pinata

Image
So, apparently my sister likes Rilakkuma..Elder sis decided to throw her a Rilakkuma-themed surprise party and I was too lazy didn't know what to do for the programs so I offered to make a pinata. It's been a very long time since I did art and crafts and those sort. Nope, I haven't been making cards cause I feel like it neither did I drew or sketch anything lately. I actually like doing those, alone. ._.
Anyway...the steps are really easy...except it took me close to six hours to complete the whole thing, including decorating the exterior T^T 
Few things I used to make this pinata:
One oreo cardboxs (those boxes oreos that I won last year came in handy :P - link) One Shin Ramyun cardbox (the red one) Stapler Masking Tape Rope  Brown Mahjong Paper  Brown Paper  Scissors PVC Glue Paper Knife or Blade Newspapers Marker Pen Brush Yellow A4 paper White A4 paper
I actually followed a guide here (link) which I think it's better for you to refer to and improvise like I did. There's a pic…

The Other Side of Life

Image
Of late, I've seen this picture of "Dr. Richard Teo" and in the caption it was his thoughts about life, wealth, success and happiness. You can listen it here (link). I decided to google him and to see what his background was, because he seemed familiar. I think I've seen him appear in CNA (Channel News Asia) before. Lo and behold, I found out that 'thoughts about life, wealth, success and happiness' were actually part his testimony and speech that he gave in Dental Christian Fellowship. Read here for the transcript of the full speech (link)



I'm not sure who started sharing but this story definitely went viral (at least within Malaysia and Singapore). The thing is, not the whole speech was made into a transcript. His testimony about his Christian faith, his encounter with God was left out :( Nevertheless, I think if people actually google him out, like me, they will find out that it is not just an inspiring story about 'life, wealth, success and happin…

Video of the Week: Moon Trance - Lindsey Stirling

Image
I love the cinematography done in this video! Lindsey always get a lot of good directors to film her music videos and this time it's Emmy Award winning director Nathan D. Lee! :D

Does the video reminds you of Michael Jackson's Thriller? It does to me. But nevertheless I don't think it's a copycat video. :D Love the fact Lindsey dances around while she plays lol.

FOOD: International Buffet Dinner at Hotel Istana - Taman Sari

Image
Livingsocial was selling a deal - RM49 per pax for a buffet dinner at Hotel Istana - Taman Sari. Mum bought the deal and we ate there in conjunction of Ruh's birthday :3 It's my first time there with my family and I've always heard how good Hotel Istana's buffet is.


It's my second time at Hotel Istana.. the first was back in August, went for friend's birthday party in a restaurant nearby and decided to park at Hotel Istana..so on the way back, we jalan-jalan in the hotel lobby area and looked for restroom. LOL :X


View outside the buffet area. Can see the swimming pool nearby.


All the "cold stuff". Salads, hams and the best - smoked mackerel (●´∀`)ノ♡





Not sure what's the significance of having car brands on the cup cakes. Ducati and Yamaha ._. anyone care to explain?


Overview of dessert side.


BBQ booth was located outside. :D 


The available dressings and sauce at the BBQ booth.


Loot from BBQ booth - closewise from top middle -  clams, beef, chicken sausage…

To be or not to be

To be or not to be, that is the question. Literally. 
: (
Dilemma. When in dilemma, what you do? 
Don't tell me flip coins please. :1 
Sigh.

Once a Week Weekly Deodorant Review

Image
So. You might be wondering... why the heck am I writing about deodorant. Nothing special really. Except that I always think that sharing is caring. :D So today, just so happen I've finished my assignments and I have some free time, I figure I should be a lil caring :P

I've have BO problems ever since I was in secondary school (ohmagerd, confession time!). It's pathetic really. I've tried using Nivea deodorant for women for I think 1-2 years maybe? It didn't really work, in fact it's because of it, I often find stains on my shirts and of course there's some side effects to the armpits. What the heck. :1 T_T Sangat memalukan okay. So because it was ineffective, I finally stopped using the Nivea deodorant (despite using it 1-2 years -_-) and used lemon instead. LOL. I scrubbed lemon onto my armpits every day when I bathe.. until one day I realized I did it wrong. ONLY use this method when it's sun down. Darn. :( Kebodohans. Anyway, it wasn't effective …

Months of Drought

Image
What's with the repetitions?
It's not really drought here in Kuala Lumpur. In fact, it's been raining cats and dogs for the past 1 week since Wednesday. It rained so heavily that the carpark at uni almost got flooded (again!) on Friday. Panic a lil because I was at the other side of the building and I had got wet on my way back to the carpark area -_- thank God, the water level was not high enough to drown reach the cars' engines but my shoes were drenched with muddy water, no escape :(

Anyhows, what I meant by months of drought is that.. "my life with contests" haven't been fruitful for like 6 months or so. LOL, as my friend would say it - SLNWB. You wonder what this acronym? It stands for So Long No Win Big. LOOOOL. Contest freaks would know this. :( Three of my friends just won S3, I'm so motivated to win one gadget for myself. The closest I get to winning a tablet is Pappa Rich's contest (link)... which reminds me I haven't go collect my c…

Video of the Week: Lady Gaga Throws Up on Stage

Image
OKAY, not exactly the best video to watch but if you're a Lady Gaga hater, you're probably gonna watch it.
Not too long ago, like 2 or 3 weeks ago I think, Justin Bieber also throw up on stage while performing his first concert for his Believe tour. Oh gosh, how embarrassing.

Then now, Lady Gaga vomits FOUR TIMES on stage, while performing Edge of Glory in Barcelona. Err...so is vomiting on stage a trend now or what? :P




Wimpy Braille Burgers Advertisement

Image
One thing that's nice about studying mass comm is that we get to watch loads of videos. I get to watch videos almost in every lecture for every subject. Teehee. Even get to watch free movies and documentaries. So, yesterday my marcom lecturer showed us this video (and a few other videos) and I really liked this video although it's actually an advert. 
I thought it was so touching when I saw those participants laughed and smiled while they read the Braille codes with their hands. T_T 
I like the message in the video: "Sure it was a small gesture.. but for people who use their hands as their eyes this was the first time they could do more than just taste their food" YEAH MAN.

:DD
During film class yesterday, lecturer showed us a freaky video on German expressionism but I couldn't find the video on Youtube. :1 He was asking us what expression is this.. then one of my friends answered.. "Shocked..no psycho..sure psycho" LOL. 

I Won the Super Cool MTV VMA Headphones!

Image
Something unfortunate happened about 2-3 weeks ago. I broke my beloved v-Jays which I won back in November (link). :( Super sad because it was my first high-end headphones which I love a lot because it sounds awesome. And I loveeee the ergonomics of it and v-Jays teman me to sleep almost every night. :(
But! Thanks to hot magazine, I won a super cool MTV Video Music Awards headphone! Am super happy lorh. The headphones are made by IMIXID and I've never heard of the brand before. It's over-ear, unlike v-Jays which was on-ear. 



The wire/cable is only connected to the left side, so no more hassle with wires tangling with each other. Plus point. Then, it's quite ergo too but I hate the fact I have rather big ears
(;¬_¬) . So it's not really comfortable that the headphone covers my whole ear because the feeling is like the paddings are squishing my ears :( And as for the sound, I don't find the sound as impressive as v-Jays. 



But cannot deny this headphone looks awesome…

Video of the Week: Adele - Skyfall

Image
ADELE is back! Yeah, she's back with Skyfall, theme song for the Bond movie with the same title (name). I'm not the biggest fan of Bond movies nor any 007 stars nor chicks and I certainly don't like Daniel Craig (ooppss..) but I like Adele..so :D

Coca-Cola Limited Edition Hari Raya Plates

Image
Awhile back, Coca-Cola had organized a campaign - for 4 x 1.5 liter of Coca-Cola you purchase, you will get a free limited edition Hari Raya plates from Coca-Cola in limited participating outlets only. 
As cheapskate as I am, I don't want to spend so much money to buy soooo many Coca-Cola (4 x 3 = 12 COKES!) just for 3 plates (cause 3 different designs). So, I waited. And joined contests. Then, hooray! I really won :P Much thanks to Nuffnang! Teehee. So, I didn't need to drink Coca-Cola excessively. Phew. 



The thing is... I'm missing the 3rd design of the plate. Coca-Cola had some problems with the printing (or so I heard) so the 3rd design (love shaped) was very limited in the market. So, if so happen you are a Coke collector and if you are a kind soul, do let me know if you would like to trade plates with me.. THANKS :D



What I Learn From Doing Movie Reviews

Image
For the past 2 weeks, I've been writing movie reviews. No, not for pleasure or blogging. Academic purposes. One of my assignments this semester is to write reviews for 4 movies. To date, I've watched an Italian movie, an Iranian movie, a French-produced short film, a British-produced film based on a Kenyan true story and even a Bosnian war drama.

Yes, of course I grew up watching Disney cartoons (awesome childhood I have :p) and the overrated Hollywood movies so this is definitely an eye opener. But reviewing movies has been such a painful process because I have to watch it several times to be able to write a 2-pages review.  What makes it so difficult is because I need to write it based on film theories and elements and not just plain BS about the storyline.

So here's what I learnt so far.

1) You need to pay attention to details.
The technicalities in film are important. Not only do you need to listen to the dialogues but also look at how shots are taken, the angles, the …

Beng See Full Bakery

Busy, busy with assignments. Bored, bored of assignments. 
While people were out playing lanterns, I was at home finishing my PR assignment on Mid-Autumn Festival. HAHAHA. I feel productive. Anyhows, mama b(r)ought back home Beng See Full Bakery's awesome awesome delicacy twice...and I'm saying delicacy because I don't know what's it called. LOOOOL. It's not mooncakes by the way


Tastes yum! As you can see from the picture above, the egg yolk is like hugeeee and the pastry is not too thick. Unlike a lot of pastries I've eaten before, the pastry makes up 50% and filling is only 50%. This one is like 80% filling. :) If you wanna get them if I did not make any mistake here's the address:
67G, Jalan SL 1/4, Bandar Sg. Long, 43000 Cheras, Kajang, Selangor.  You can also call 012-6635854 or 016-3378606 if you have got any questions.
