Oh Look, Krill!

Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.

At The Library

Watching kids play Dance Central. I don’t want to stare but I can’t help it. It’s like watching a wreck waiting to happen. Morbid curiosity, ya know?

I know I’m definitely not the best dancer in the world but when you’re watching from the sofa, it’s makes you go “OMG, ARE THEY REALLY DANING LIKE THAT?!”

Of course that means that we dance that way too. I’m trying not to judge but it’s tough. Must. Not. Look. Anymore.

Last Friday Of The Year

It’s the last Friday of the year and I’m at home watching Harry Potter.

It’s the eve of the new year tomorrow and I doubt I’ll be doing any partying since I’m not the partying sort.

Dude is still out of the country so I’m just a tiny bit bored and there’s only so much tv watching and random internet surfing that one can do.

So what are your plans for this long weekend? Out partying? If you are, do take care and don’t drink and drive. Stay safe and have fun everyone.

I leave you with this:

Reading List for 2012

In the past month, I’ve been compiling a list of things that I’d like to read and re-read in 2012. I’m not sure what I my schedule is going to be like but I’m going to try and complete as much of the list as possible.

So in random order, here’s my list:

1. Waking the Witch, Kelley Armstrong.

2. Spellbound, Kelley Armstrong

3. The Lost Heroes, Rick Riordan

4. The Son of Neptune, Rick Riordan

5. The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins

6. Catching Fire, Suzanne Collins

7. Mockingjay, Suzanne Collins

8. The entire collection of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

9. The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien

10. Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien

This is what I have so far but I may add to the list when I come up with more books to read. Do you have a reading list? What’s yours?

Trying My Hand At Sewing

It’s been more than a decade since I actually sewed anything. The last time was for a school project and even then, I was strictly supervised by my grandma and my mother. When a friend of mine showed me a site for cute cloth postcards from Taiwan, I couldn’t resist and got myself a few.

They’re so cute! I’d initially wanted to start with the cow but my mom, having totally no confidence in me, told me to start with something easier, like the sheep.

Well, I can’t blame her since I’m known to never finish a sewing project, not even any of my crocheting project. However, I’m going to give this one a go.

My friend who introduced me to the cloth postcards made a penguin for me, as a belated birthday present.

Isn’t it cute?

So I’m going to attempt, emphasis on ATTEMPT, to make at least one of these cute cloth postcards. Aiming low is the way to go.

Look What Came For Me Today

The lovely people at HBO Asia sent a little gift pack today, containing a bottle of True Blood, a 2012 desk calendar and a True Blood poster that’s exactly like in the picture shown.

Many thanks to Atiqah and HBO Asia. Now I have 3 seasons of True Blood to catch up on, since I only finished watching the first one and maybe half of the second season.

Moving Away From iDevices

At the recent demise of my 5 year old white Macbook, I was convinced to go back to using a Windows machine.


It helped that I got a machine that’s the same specs as a 13″ Macbook Pro, for half the price.

It was not as hard as I thought to be back to using Windows, though the keyboard placement did give me a slight problem. Anyway, the transition from an Apple OS to Windows 7 was relatively smooth and painless. Although, I did keep trying to do my Mac shortcuts only to realise they don’t really work.

Since I was moving away from Apple, I had gotten myself an Android Tablet as well. However, I didn’t expect the learning curve to using an Android tablet to be as steep as it was.

I had some technical issues with the tablet at first which ended with it being at the service centre for a week after only getting and barely using it for two weeks but so far it seems alright.

The home screen for the device looks like this.

Anyway, the onscreen keyboard for this tablet isn’t as easy to use as I thought and I can see why some people downloaded their own keyboard apps instead of using the native one.

I’m so used to the Apple App Store that trying to navigate through the Android Market doesn’t feel as easy. I have to keep reminding myself that not everything on the App Store is available on the Market and that I have to find alternatives for them.

The thing that I do like about this tablet is that it’s relatively easy to transfer my files in there. I’m still unable to sync it to my computer but since it’s read as an external storage device, I just drop my files into the appropriate folders and TA DA! I can read/watch them on the tablet.

Now that I’m moving away from Apple, the only Apple product left that I have is the phone but I have a feeling that that isn’t going to change anytime soon in the future.

What I’ve Been Up To Lately

Being home the past couple of weeks, I’ve been doing a lot of things that I’ve not been able to do for quite a while due to my busy schedule.

I got to meet up with my friends. I forgot how much fun I have when I’m out with them and I’ve missed it.

I’ve been reading a lot of comics lately too, catching up on my reading list.

I went for a camera workshop with my friends.

I met a friend for lunch.

I went out for a late breakfast with sister.

Best of all, I get home-made goodies.
