Are you what you blog?

Read the newspapers about the action taken by PSC on a scholar that posted racist remarks on his blog.

So are you what you blog?

A blog is suppose to be a record of one's personal life. It makes me feel so weary of what i am going to enter in my blog now. I dun wanna be sued or anything.. who knows how many voyeurs actually read this..

Hmm..

so if u read this, add a comment and tell me man..

Till then .. Take care!

Sad Movies... Only make me cry

have been so busy working recently, that i have no time to update my blog on a regular basis.

Today, watched a show Tiramisu on Channel U. Casts: Nicholas Tse Ting-Fung, Karena Lam Ka-Yan, Eason Chan Yik-Shun Mainpix_tiramisu

Karena Lam plays Jane Chan, a free-spirited dancer who meets an untimely end and must ask for help from deaf mailman/delivery guy Fung (Nicholas Tse). The two met over the course of the day, and upon her death, Jane's spirit became entangled with Fung. Jane informs Fung that she only has seven days to help her dance company and best friend Tina (Cando Lo) compete in a generic Big Dance. It's her life dream and Jane is hellbound to make it happen even if it means taking over Fung's body. Can the rhythm-less Fung become a dancing machine?

When i watched it, i was so touched. Throughout chinese culture, we have had many tales of romance between the living and dead. But this movie had such a modern touch as well as a touching storyline that my eyes were wet...

gosh... i am such a sucker for weepies recently. The movie made me realise that how fortunate we are everyday, sometimes, we must treasure every single things that happens in our day to day life, so that we when we look back at our life, we will not be filled with regrets!

The things in life...

These few days.. i have been thinking back about the past..

i remember how way back in primary school days. My chinese teacher used to tell us.. treasure your primary school friends, for when you grow up, you will realise that the friendship forged during that childhood is the most true and innocent.

It's been 11 years since i left primary school.. looking back, i realised what she said is perfectly correct. Even though the internet has made it possible for people with similar interests to come together and stuff like that, there is still a lot of hidden agenda and back stabbing happening. Where has the true meaning of friendship gone? Friends or just fiends?

Flowering.. Flowering..

Just how nice it is when airplant start to flower.. this is my Tilly2Tillandsia albertiana... impressive striking red colours... sorry for the very poor resolution pics.. cos these were taken using my lousy web camera!!! So to all those who wanna see nicer pics, my birthday is in December.. i wish for a good digital camera in advance ok? haha!!! Will try to get more pics of blooming plants in my collection up soon.. got a lot more blooming recently..

Tilly_1Anyway... here's some info on the plant:

Tillandsia albertiana (all-bear-tee-ah'-na): This plant is native
to the foothills of Argentina where it grows in dense clumps as an epiphyte
on cliffs and rocks. It likes shaded areas and is a fast grower, producing
pups that form a mass in as little as one growing season. The blooms of
this plant are a bright red and quite big in relation to the the plant's size.

It's a cruel, blue summer...

For the past few days, i have been thinking over whether to leave a forum Logo_phpbb
that i have have been moderating..

a lot of unhappy incidents have been brewing... to some extent.. i feel that i have been badly affected.. all the politics.. need a break... arghh.hh...

Why cant live be more simple? i dun see why a group of ppl coming together virtually can have so much conflicts... geee....

haiz...

TGIF Friday!!!!

Supposed to be study week = study at home week..

could not resist the temptation today to go out!!!muahaha..
went on a shopping spree...

met my friend to go shopping at queensway area.. from there we started off with an orchid shop selling quite a lot of exotics.. the persuasive uncle was sad to say not that... that uncle kinda reminded me of insurance agent.. everything also good.. everything also must buy..
Next went for lunch to the hawker centre there.. most of the stalls not open.. so sad.. so early meh? 1030 already leh... so in the end settled for Bak Kut Teh... eh.. which CMI..

went to Ikea then, to check out the plants section.. not very impressive..
so after that.. decided to go to Far East Flora at Ridout where i bought my unlabelled bottle of fertilzier.. nothing much to buy at that branch.. so after taking a seat at Macdonald's... we were soon overwhelmed by the thought of going to all the nurseries at Thomnson!!!
My first time there.. when i was there.. i was like wow.. this place is incredible.. nearly all kinda plants.. of course some of the plants were not in good condition, especially for the tillandsias (air plant) .. all looked either too dry or over wet. Overall, it was a really enjoyable day.. zipping from place to place.. all that fun!!! super fun..

here.. i would like to thank my new friend, June aka Junde.. for being such a nice tour guide today!

Moanday... sian...

Monday Blues!!! The rain just simply adds to how sucky this Monday has been.. Raining since morning..
This week is exam week!!!!!
argh... so stressed..
looking my AP chemistry.. trying my best to absob as much as i can.. its really quite confusing haha.. sheesh.. i actually wondered how i managed to study all this last time during A levels.. quite suprising that 2 years in the army can actually induce memory lapse.. :P
anyway.. today found armour bugs on my tillandsia diaguitensis.. pesky bugs.. luckily i managed to find them before they suck my plant dry... irritating parasites.. the thing about them is they are so small.. just the size of a full stop.. and that makes sporting them so difficult..
Guess gotta start revising already.. so man.. so stressed!!!!

managed to get a very nice show on Channel U today ..

It's turn left, turn right!!! I have not always been a big fan of chinese shows... but this one just caught me watching it.. a really great plot! Very touching too, i must say... really got my heart at this one.. It taught me that, somewhere out there, someone is really waiting for me...
awwww... so sweet right?Turn_left_turn_right_a

Saturday seems like just a normal day this week..
perhaps its becaue it has been a very slack week.. no school.. no work.. nothing at all...
haha... speak about the calm before the storm.. exams coming really soon.. First paper is AP Chemistry coming up this wednesday.. thankfully, i only have 3 papers.. so not too bad... still can afford time to slack here and there..
the air plants on my fake tree still doing really fine.. hopefully they will acclimatise themselves soon!!!
ok.. time to go back to the books!
