IceKacang Puppy Love - 初恋红豆冰

Any of you watched this movie before? :D

I know many of you might think, what is this? What a title for a movie?  Well, don't judge a movie by its title. The important thing is the story line, right..  It's a nice show actually.

Directed by the famous singer Tan Kheng-Seong better known as AhNiu, who called upon  a bunch of top Malaysian artists including Nicholas Teo, Fish Leong, Gary Chaw, and Angelica Lee to produce this touching film.

Set in the early nineties, in a small town of Ipoh, where Ah Niu as "Botak" and Angelica Lee, as "DaJiaYu" ( Fighting Fish ). Spending the whole childhood together, Botak developed feelings for DaJiaYu but never got the courage to confess this feelings for her... The icekacang is used to describe his first love for DaJiaYu.

It is an enjoyable film having a mix of drama and also comedy.

 So sweet...

A bunch of mid 30 artists who played a good part in being youngters again.


A movie not to be missed. 

Somehow, I don't think it was a nice ending because there wasn't a happy ending. I don't know why but I like happy endings and maybe believe a little... in happy endings. What am I right. So drama... haha. 

Overall, I think it's a great show. Worth watching. :)

Here's the trailer of the movie. Enjoy.  


 

"Deejay" Roxanne - nice experience

First time up on air. My first time becoming a "radio" deejay. It's not an actual radio station, just a short talking session on the loudspeaker in school. Well, surprisingly I wasn't all scared and nervous. It was fun. I thought I didn't sound like myself, I'm serious; even my parents said so, but my cousin said that he could recognize my voice instantly.

My deejay partner was Sumei. :) Both of us were like taking it slow and steady. Hoping that students were actually listening to us. But as we walked passed classes when we played the "We are the world 25 for Haiti" song, most of the students were like talking among themselves. I guess this whole morning talk really isn't a great idea. What do you think?

Oh well, I just gotta hope that we can actually attract students to listen to us. Like look forward to listen to your talks.

Or maybe we can ask for students' opinion on what they would like to hear. I know many of them want to hear more songs and less talk and well, we told the teacher. But the teacher obviously rejected. She said that that wouldn't be the whole point of this morning talk then. And they won't allow us to play love songs. What's the point then right? All the songs are about love. -.-

We are trying our best to convince the teacher. We will be back after the Mid term exams. Stay tuned alright ! :)

Signing of with my camwhore pic. haha. ><

I miss Beijing.. 
miss the snow.. 
miss the cold weather..

We Are The World 25 For Haiti - Lend a helping hand.

Found this song when I was researching on MJ. The old " We are the World" was re-recorded by new artists, hoping to reach the people of Haiti. They used back the lyrics written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie and added some rapping by LL Cool J, Will-I-Am, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Swizz Beatz.

Love it.


Hope you guys enjoy the video.





Lyrics below.

We Are The World 25 For Haiti Lyrics
[Justin Bieber]
There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
[Nicole Scherzinger & Jennifer Hudson]
When the world must come together as one
[Jennifer Hudson]
There are people dying
[Jennifer Nettles]
And it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all
[Josh Groban]
We can’t go on
Pretending day by day
[Tony Bennet]
that someone, somehow will soon make a change
[Mary J Blige]
We are all a part of
God’s great big family
And the truth, you know love is all we need
[Chorus]
[Michael Jackson]
We are the world
We are the children
[Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson]
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
[Barbra Streisand]
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me
[Miley Cyrus]
Send them your heart
So they’ll know that someone cares
[Enrique Iglesias]
so their cries for help
will not be in vain
[Nicole Scherzinger]
We can’t let them suffer

[Jamie Foxx]
Right now they need a helping hand
[Wyclef Jean]

There seems no hope at all
[Usher]
But if you just believe
There’s no way we can fall
[Celine Dion]
Well, well, well, well, let us realize
That a change can only come
[Fergie]
When we stand together as one
[Chorus - All]
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day

saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me
[Rapping - LL Cool J, Will-I-Am, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Swizz Beatz]
We all need somebody that we can lean on
when you wake up look around and see that your dreams gone
when the earth quakes we’ll help you make it through the storm
when the floor breaks a magic carpet to stand on
we are the World united by love so strong
when the radio isn’t on you can hear the songs
a guided light on the dark road your walking on
a sign post to find the dreams you thought was gone
someone to help you move the obstacles you stumbled on
someone to help you rebuild after the rubble’s gone
we are the World connected by a common bond
lyrics courtesy of www.killerhiphop.com
Love the whole planet sing it along
[Wyclef]
CABARETT
[Chorus - All]
[Kanye West]
Everyday citizens
everybody pitching in
[Singing - Children & Wyclef Jean]
Nou se mond la
nou se timoun yo
[Will-I-Am]
You and I
You and I
[Kanye West]
Uh, 12 days no water
whats your will to live?
[Will-I-Am]
we amplified the love we watching multiply
[Kanye West]
Feeling like the Worlds end
we can make the World win
[Will-I-Am]
Like Katrina, Africa, Indonesia
and now Haiti needs us, the need us, they need us
[Chorus - All]
[Wyclef Jean]
Ayiti, Ayiti, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Ayiti, Ayiti, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Ayiti, Ayiti, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay

CIMB Junior Circuit Selangor Interschool Scrabble Competition

This is my first time ever going for a scrabble competition. And to tell you the truth, I'm not even good at it. Brittany and a few of us that attended the workshop were suppose to go together but they pulled out last minute and therefore I had to go alone. At first I didn't want to go too but I thought ahhh.. just go for it. Get some exposure and experience.

Well, I did gain a lot of experience as it was my first time joining SCRABBLE competition and also playing scrabble with a timer.  Normally, when I played scrabble, I would take my own sweet time to put my words and all.. But during the competition, it was like I never took my eyes of the timer. but of course I was looking at my rack too la...


 The competition in the Hall of SMK Dato' Hamzah, Klang.
( Picture grabbed from HuiJan )


Another truth untold, I didn't actually practice or prepare for the competition at all. does a game with my dad a night before count? ><  Seriously.. I was so busy with school stuff and all, I only decided that I was attending the competition that week itself, around Thursday or so. You might think wtheck, this girl dare to go for competition unprepared? I know, I think I'm crazy myself. But like I said, I wasn't going for the prize or anything. I just wanted to experience what a scrabble competition was like.


Contestants taking their seats on the first round. 

46 tables altogether.
The left side is the players with high points and spread.  

I went into the hall where the competition was held and found myself oddly dressed. Every contestants were in their school uniform and I was the only one in my school Basketball Club shirt. After registering myself, I heard my name being called but then I saw no one I knew. Until someone appeared infront of me. It was HUIJAN! I was so pleased to see her.. I totally wasn't expecting to see my BRATs friend on such occasion.  

Lucky I had her there because I knew totally no one but her. And of course Martin which I met during the workshop. He is the committee member of MSA ( Malaysian Scrabble Association ) and also one of the organizer of the CIMB Scrabble competition.

We had 7 games altogether, 3 before lunch and 4 after lunch. Here, tell you something I find rather funny and stupid.

After every game we play, we will have out points and spread. Then we will be allocated against an opponent. So, if our points and spread are high, we will be allocated to play on the front few tables. But then, I didn't know it was like that until I finished the 5th game. Stupid right?  but, excuse the stupidity, I am still somehow a beginner in Scrabble. 

I was at the 40 + table for the first four games then I went to 20+ the last three games. Not bad right?

The most fun opponent I had was Pragaash, my fifth opponent.  There was a word COG on our board and both of us were really trying to UNCOG our board by adding UN-COG. So I tried changing tiles. And once I managed to uncog the board, there he went and got bingo with the word INSPECTOR.  pfft. He also said that it was his first time ever playing scrabble. Can you believe that? But overall, it was a fun game I must say.

After the fifth round, mummy came to see how was I doing.

At the sixth round, I was so tired and exhausted and my opponent was a 13 year old experienced scrabble player. So I decided to play defensive by using up as much time I could so she wouldn't score more points because I had very bad tiles and I couldn't put any words. 

The whole competition ended around 6 or so. The winner was Jagan who also won the MELAKA CIMB Junior Circuit Scrabble Competition and runner up was William Kang who always sat at the first table which is the highest ranking table.

Final score sheet.

Can you see my BRATs friend in TOP TEN! :D HO HUI JAN!

And me placed at no. 59. For an inexperienced and unprepared player like me, I think it's not bad. At least I'm not the last. ><


Note to self : Must play and practice more! :) Aim for Nationals next year.
