Rock On!


Lately my friends and I have been on edge waiting for the premier of Camp Rock 2. Although I seldom visit Disney Channel, or any of the kids channels for that matter, I myself am very excited for its debut. We’re so excited for it, already jamming to “It’s On” and singing our hearts out to every line we can remember from ads and previews.

Is it surprising that I have a huge interest in this musical phenomenon? Not really. My friends and I have an extended history dealing with Camp Rock. It does bring back memories of earlier, more innocent (somewhat) days. Firstly, one of us watched it online before it even started showing in humble Malaysia and passed on its CD to us, so many of us got to see it early.

Secondly, in our final year of Primary School, we danced to “Start the Party”, one of the awesome tracks from the movie, during our Grad Night. Admittedly, the dance lacked that “oomph”, but with all the support we didn’t notice that! A couple of my friends also auditioned for the same night with another one of the Camp Rock songs, though it didn’t push through.

My best friend is also crazy over Nick Jonas, and since he’ll be in the movie on a bigger scheme, we’re all equally jumpy for her! The Jonas Brothers were my first favourite teen boy band at the time when they first appeared from almost nowhere in a Hannah Montana concert. I also happen to be a Demi Lovato fan.

Can’t wait for it to show here! I’m so gonna be watching it that September Sunday. Just as a reminder for my Standard 6 days. Sigh, good times, good times…

“Hey, remember when…”


Lessons Learned from My Cats



Introducing… Kittie and Kuluu! These two were part of a three-kitten litter of a stray cat. Kittie, being the older sister, is your typical cat: Loves food, is (mostly) quiet, is attracted to anything that moves, doesn’t really care and is silent and graceful. Kuluu, on the other hand, is more like a dog in a cat’s body… She’d rather get carried and petted all day than finish her food, is extremely clumsy and has a strange sense of loyalty and has someone she can call her ‘person’. She likes to talk and always has something to say to whatever you say. Oh, and did I mention that she sings?

Based on first impressions, there isn’t much to Kittie. The first thing one might be reminded of when looking at her is your typical street cat, wondering around seemingly aimlessly. She shies away from strangers. But, get to know her, and you find that she is extremely adorable, sweet and enjoys a regular audience watching her cute, fluffy antics.

On the other hand, Kuluu is a natural charmer. She is very ‘pretty’ and will walk up to a stranger and start meowing at them, asking to sit on their lap. While all my friends think she’s extremely cute, I have been ‘lucky’ enough to be chosen as her person, and I can tell you the truth about all this.

Kuluu is actually really like that person everyone likes at first… Until you get to know him/her. She has lost all her innocence and is quite manipulative… for a cat. When she doesn’t get the attention she craves, she will tear at furniture, annoy her older sister or simply meow her head off! When she thinks nobody’s watching, she’ll do whatever she knows she isn’t allowed to do. As a person, she would be a total nightmare. Her sister is the one with that adorable innocence in her huge eyes.

Don’t we all know a person who we believed would be a great friend, and turns out they were exactly opposite? How many of us have been cheated on, betrayed or tricked by the obvious charmer? And how many later realized that the one we never bothered with is the one person who is an indispensable person, whether it’s a friend or a worker?

How much your two pets can make you think is surprising, isn’t it?

Why I Decided to Start a Blog


Hi all! This is my first blog post, so go easy on me, k?

I guess all of us need a channel through which they express themselves. The same goes for me. At the same time, a lot of us like to be heard by others, to have someone to talk to.

I’m a writer, and I find that I can express what I’m thinking better through a pen dancing across the paper on would-be straight lines than from behind a computer, through a paintbrush or by using my own tongue. I admit, I find it somewhat difficult to express myself verbally (and often resort to my diary or to writing a song). But I felt like I still wanted some people to hear my thoughts. I have some sort of dire need to be heard and I like others to know my views.

That’s when it hit me… Why not start a blog?

So there you have it.
