Comments not commands

Ok, that was a joke by my Business Law lecturer she was talking about the spelling mistakes made by students during exams. She said they were usually from Chinese school. Well, I was from a Chinese primary school. S.R.J.K.(C) Yuk Chai but I think my spelling is good. Most of the time. Haha. Well, I think that's because I speak English at home, in church, almost anywhere.

I used to not like One Republic because I got sick of the song, Apologize. But I take my words back after listening to Stop and Stare. Hope that unlike Apologize, I won't be forced to listen to it for close to a million times.

OneRepublic Lyrics
Stop & Stare Lyrics

Stop and Stare - One Republic music video and lyrics.
Comments: I don't know what this song means exactly. It's so ambiguous. But sometimes, in our lives, we can only stop and stare. It's not that we don't want to do anything but it's just that we can't do anything about it due to certain things standing in our way. OK, I think I sound ambiguous too. I know many of you are dying to know what I mean but it's personal.

The next one, it's still one of my favorite Lee Hom song. I was playing it on the keyboard before CG starts yesterday until David started playing the song on his phone and everyone's attention diverted to the phone.

Wang Lee Hom - Kiss Goodbye

Thursday, May 29, 2008

This is the song

This is the Cantonese song by Lee Hom that I like. The tune is catchy too. I prefer the lyrics in this version compared to the Mandarin version.

歌手:王力宏 专辑:唯一

词:林夕 曲:王力宏

如何令你钟意 hey yeah
time to fall in love 时间总会走
time to fall in love 时间飞走
time is in your hand take the time

take the time take the time yeah yeah.

time to fall in love time to fall in love

I made it through

This is where I listen to Mandarin/Korean/Japanese songs by my favorite singers. Currently grooving along to songs by Wang Lee Hom. I didn't know he sings in Cantonese too. Gosh, he sings in so many languages. He's probably the most multi-lingual singer I know!

Had my first 2 lectures for this semester. The first one Business Law, well the lecturer was a no-nonsense kind of person. You don't want to mess around her, or even slack. She probably won't allow you to slack anyway. She's that strict. The 2nd lecture, Management Accounting. The lecturer is very experienced, has been lecturing for 11 years, a CIMA graduate, laidback, yeah, he's good too. At least I went home understanding what I just studied. So 2 good lecturers so far.

Semester Break ends tonight

I'm going back to college tommorow. I don't know if I'm looking forward to going back or not. Back to all that stress. Haiz. I need God's grace to go through all that. Really, I think God's grace is one of the best things in this world.

I saw a comment under last, last post, and thinking it would be Hoc Mun commenting on don't know what, I went to read it, until I found out that the comment was by Monique, the PR team for Sherwood Pictures, creater of Facing the Giants. Yes, that's the movie I watched twice and can't wait to promote it to Andrew. But he watched it before me.

OK, that comment basically was to promote Fireproof, due to come out in September 26, probably in USA. I'm in Malaysia so I probably had to wait and Andrew is going to watch it before me again. I watched the trailer on it's gonna be as amazing as Facing the Giants. I can't wait to watch it.

Which one do you fear more?

I read an article on the internet asking which one would people fear more. Recession or terrorism. I would say neither, but I would fear natural disaster more.

I was reading CNN on the internet when I came across this report about a Hurricane that hit Weld County in Colorado. Even the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Admistration (NOAA) predicts that this year's hurricane season which begins on June 1 would be above normal.

Recently we hear news of earthquakes, hurricanes and what not. Other than helping the victims, what are we doing about it for the future? Fighting global warming would be costly but is the economy more important than this planet that we live in? Sometimes natural disaster might weaken the economy. What about our future generations? Nature can easily wipe out the entire human race. It's that scary. That's why I would fear natural disaster more.

Ups and downs today

I'm happy because....
David Cook is the new American Idol. I kind of expected it, hey he got 12 million more votes than the other David. And he's really good, really versatile. The kind of singer I would like. So congratulations!

I'm angry because...
I don't like my new timetable except for the part where I don't have to go to college on Monday. I have so many reasons not to like it. First, On Tuesday class ends at 7.30pm. 7pm is my dinner time. Are they considerate? Why can't they put it in the morning at 8am? I rather have an 8am class than a 7.30pm class. Secondly, on Wednesday, I have to be at college for only 2 hours just to attend a tutorial. What were they thinking when they planned that? No complains for Thursday schedule but I absolutely hate Friday's schedule. I have cell meetings on Friday night. My class ends at 7pm, by the time I reach home it's 8 something. Go figure. I'll be late for cell and all that, I don't even have time to bathe. By the way, do they know that the darn LRT is packed like sardines at those times? The class that ends at 7.30pm on Tuesdays and 7pm on Fridays are English for Business classes. Darn it!

Anyway, my "movie marathon" sort of ends this week. This whole semester break I watched: Casino Royale, Narnia: Prince Caspian, Ah Long Pte Ltd, Die Hard 4.0, Escape from Huang Shi, Wimbledon, Facing the Giants, Day After Tomorrow, The Devil Wears Prada. All these movies are worth watching except for Wimbledon which was a slight disappointment.

The whole afternoon was wasted trying to fix this problem on Youtube. I wanted to watch a video or two as usual but when I got there, there's this message that says I either have the javascript switched off or had not downloaded the latest adobe flash player. So I tried to fix this problem, I went to check if my javascript is on and it is and so is my adobe flash player. I used to be able to watch videos on Youtube as in I never encountered this problem before. I was able to view Youtube videos posted on my blog but not on the Youtube site itself so I don't know what's the real problem here.

So later on, as in just recently, my friend asked me to try firefox instead. I'm trying it at the moment. Guess what, it works. So now I'm watching some Youtube videos while blogging at the same time using firefox.

So I have been watching Switchfoot videos.

This is my favorite song, I first heard it while watching the movie A walk to remember.

This song is for Narnia: Prince Caspian. The one recently released.

What's the big deal???

I was reading the discussion board for Lifehouse on Facebook and they were talking about Lifehouse music and how it has gone mainstream/secular/commercialized etc. There was kind of like a heated argument. What's the big deal? The most important thing is their music. As long as they love what they're doing than it's fine with me.

Just like in this Lee Hom song, W-H-Y. I can't think of any other song that expresses my sentiments better.

Narnia: Prince Caspian

I know this post is 1 day late but I had fever yesterday so I didn't go online. Still having fever now.

Watched Narnia, the one that just came out in Cathay Cineplex yesterday. I know many of you haven't watch it yet. It was amazing, worth your money, there's a lot of fighting scenes, if you love action, a kissing scene at the end, suitable for kids to watch. I also like the song at the end when Peter, Edmund, Lucy and Susan were leaving Narnia.

Before the movie, we had early lunch at Sakae Sushi. After the movie, we went shopping at the 3 shopping malls. They are all linked to each other by bridges. So we crossed many bridges that day. Didn't buy anything much except movie tickets, food and a Lee Hom CD. Bumped into Pi Yao who's part-time job hunting there. Wise choice. There are less people there, most of the shops start opening after 12pm and free bus ride from Kelana Jaya LRT station. Furthermore, there are many shops there looking for part-time workers.

That's all, I need to rest now.

Going to watch Narnia

Narnia will be opening in cinemas tomorrow. And I'm going to be one of those who'll be watching it tomorrow, together with my friend, Yoon Fong. I've booked tickets for the show, the first session. I guess this shows how much I can't wait. I wonder if I can pay with my touch n go card. I read in the newspaper that I get RM1 off.

Other than reading books, I have been playing the guitar, e-mailing, facebook-ing, and watching videos online.

I also watched Ah Long Pte Ltd, this is one of those movies you can only watch in Malaysia and Singapore. It was funny.

By the way, it's Siu Fai and my brother's birthday today, so do remember to wish them. You have to wish both of them. They are like twins you know.

P.S. Narnia opens in US on May 16 so for once, I'm watching it before they do.

Finished reading...

The Innocent Man: Murder and injustice in a small town by John Grisham.

When I started reading this book, I thought it was like all the other John Grisham books I read before, you know the fictional ones, until I read on and on and found that it's different. So I looked at the book's jacket and found that the story is actually fiction. It's a true story.

John Grisham's first time writing a nonfiction. A good read. The moment I started reading it, I can't put it down.

It was set in Oklahoma, about Ron Williamson and his friend, Dennis Fritz, wrongly accused of raping and murdering Debbie Carter. In the end, both were found innocent and freed but their experience in jail probably scarred them for life. There were others they met in jail in the same boat as them.

Stuck in my head

Yellowcard's lights and sounds seem to lost it's way in my head because it has been playing in my head especially the chorus part. I think I don't need a radio sometimes, my brain can play songs on its own.

I'm glad Jason Castro is out of American Idol. The next 2 weeks is gonna be exciting. I hope David Cook wins the American Idol.

Visit to Media Prima

Went for a visit to Media Prima, that's the company that owns TV3, 8TV, Fly FM, Hot fm and other media stuff.

Just went for a tour to watch what really goes on behind the scenes. Interesting. I also got Steve from Fly fm autograph.

While I was in the Fly FM area, I saw a poster of Switchfoot concert. Yeah, you guess it, I missed it. Like how Andrew describe it, that sucks. I hope he won't miss Switchfoot concert in October. October 5 if I'm correct. Saw it on their Facebook.

Other than that, I saw them filming Berita Terkini, tour their studios, editing room and other behind the scenes stuff. It was only a 2 hours tour.

Would I like to be in the entertainment industry? Probably but it's not as glamorous as it seems. It can be glamorous sometimes, but it can also be stressful sometimes.

Recently read

The case for faith: A journalist investigates the toughest objections to Christianity by Lee Strobel

This book get the answers for 8 objections to Christianity. I asked myself some of these questions before. They are:
  1. Objection #1: Since evil and suffering exist, a loving God cannot
  2. Objection #2: Since miracles contradict science, they cannot be true
  3. Objection #3: Evolution explains life, so God isn't needed
  4. Objection #4: God isn't worthy pf worship if he kills innocent children
  5. Objection #5: It's offensive to claim Jesus is the only way to God
  6. Objection #6: A loving God would never torture people in hell
  7. Objection #7: Church history is littered with oppression and violence
  8. Objection #8: I still have doubts, so I can't be a Christian

The author gets the answer to these 8 objections by interviewing the right people to answer those questions. He asked really tough questions. For more details, read the book.

I had doubts before, even after becoming a Christian, but I decided to just put it aside and trust God, I think this requires faith because " is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."(Hebrews 11:1)

The more I know God, the more I experience Him, the more I know that He is real.

Other than that, I read the Bible, and read books. I read three books by this author - The Case for Christ, The case for Faith and The case for a creator. Read these books, it's really good.

Not much of a technology noob

After some thinking over the technology noob thing. Can't believe I spent like few days thinking about it? I'm a introvert. To those of you who don't believe this, believe me. Observe me in parties and in places where I know only 2 or 3 people. You'll notice I'll only hang out with these 2 or 3 people. I'll only mix with others but mostly it's because we have similar interest. That's why I can talk so much online but it is also usually with people I know well or have similar interest, if not I won't talk much, probably give some monosyllable answer.

So with the amount I spend on the computer, I don't think I qualify to be a technology noob. Besides, it might just be that I don't know some of the stuff you know. Do you know how to use stuff on Google as much as I do? Google is like my playground.

My CG has dissolved, I joined a new CG yesterday. Getting used to it, probably takes time for me to settle down. Maybe a month??

Technology noob

I realize today how much of a technology noob I am. I don't know much about HTML, or cell phones, or megapixels.

I guess my knowledge is limited to Facebook, blogging, chatting, emailing, watching youtube. That's practically what I do online mostly.

At least I'm still learning, that's a good sign. One day, I won't be a technology noob. At least I much better than some people, some don't even know how to start a blog.
