they scare me

I edited the previous entry to add some photos.

Yesterday, Per and I met Juliah for dinner. I’m sure Per didn’t tell me we were meeting for dinner in Tampines. But anyway, I thought we were having dinner in town so I settled with Per to meet her at the mrt station.

Per arrived in bermudas and tee. Uh oh…something’s wrong. *blink blink* We’re meeting for dinner in Tampines. Now, I felt like an idiot coz I was dressed and made-up to go to town. :glare:

We met Juliah and had dinner at BK. As usual, talk about JE. Don’t know how or what but we moved on to some scary topics. I knew it’ll scare the shit out of me but my curiosity got the better of me.

So now, I’m trying really really hard to block the stuff out of my mind. Last night, I slept in the study room with Sis. I know I’ll start thinking about it if I’m alone. 😥

yoso wa yoso, uchi wa uchi

“他所は他所 家は家!!!”

I bet my mum would have said that if she was Japanese. Hina says this line in a very おばちゃん manner at the beginning of “∞SAKAおばちゃんROCK”. It sounds so funny. Direct translation: “Somewhere else is somewhere else, home is home!!!” Per said it’s probably a common saying for mums when they scold their kids. Like when their kids always come home late.

Oh…I have quite a few things to blog about. From the previous entry, the meme that made me so high… Haha…some people should know why. Give you a hint…Ma___. :woot: It was a meme rin-chan posted in the forum.

Who do you like: Massu :heart:
Who likes you: Shige
Where will you meet the one you like: KFC (Why am I not surprised? KFC = food = Massu) :rofl:
Who do you marry: Shige
Who loves you for real: Shige
What is your ending: have twins

The first line already made me go “AKIRA SHOCK!”

Second, Tacchon’s birthday. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, TACCHON! Per and I met up with Cindi and Julia again to celebrate Tacchon’s birthday on Tuesday. They couldn’t find a green cake again. Some explanation here…light green is Tacchon’s ranger colour. We ended up ordering desserts that were green in colour. With one exception, the red bean ice-cream which has a kanji (小倉) that almost looks like Tacchon’s surname (大倉).

Red bean ice-cream, some green tea mousse (can’t really remember the name of it) and warabi mochi with green tea ice-cream

The green tea mousse came with this cage-like cover…

After the dinner, I went to meet Sis at the airport to welcome Yui and Ryoko back from their trip to Japan. Haven’t read their report on the KAT-TUN concert which they went to watch.

Today, went to ktv with Sis and Per. Cash Studio at Apollo Centre. Good place if you want to sing Japanese songs coz they have this whole book of Japanese songs, almost phonebook thick. I think the only bonus for me, the one being the worst at Japanese, were the NewS songs. We were singing NEWSニッポン and 希望~Yell~ so loudly. :laugh: I can only manage songs that I have partly memorised or have lyrics almost all in hiragana and must be pretty slow coz I read pretty slowly. Which is why Per has been “reprimanding” me that I should go study Japanese. Too lazy lahz…hehe…

Oh. Mum just called me to go bathe. Shall end here. Thanks Per for sending me the radio rip of “∞SAKAおばちゃんROCK”. It goes on repeat mode everytime I listen to it. :rofl:

I said I was doing this 100 questions thingy. It’s done. Got it from a lj. It’s under the cut at the end of the entry.

Oh…and birthday wishes to Ling Mei and Takki. お誕生日おめでとう!!!


That’s the line from AAA’s “Hallelujah” used in the drama. Hmmm…should be “sankyuu for your love”… :laugh:

Finished watching “ガチバカ!

I think the part where most Massu fans go “no, I don’t wanna see that coz it makes my heart break” was when 加奈 got scared and mistakenly called 木実 (Tego’s character) thinking it was 耕太 (Massu’s character). And when 木実 showed up, he hugged her seeing that she was frightened. Well then, 耕太 happened to arrive just then and saw it. WHOOPS! I covered my mouth at this part too.

You know what? I can’t stand those fanfics with memberxmember pairing. Most common are MassuxTego pairing. And it’s really M18 or R21 content, if you get what I mean. It just sounds so wrong.

I’m working on this 100 questions thingy which I’ll post up soon…

sing a song

[edited on 28 Mar at 2.39am]

Upon request, I’ll add this in. At the last minute, we were furiously scanning through the Japanese song list. Then we decided to just overstay and maybe pay for an extra hour. At around 2.45pm, the guy knocked on our door and told us that we’ve stayed too long. He said that they actually extended us till 2.30pm but that’s it. We said we might as well extend till 3pm which was only about 15 minutes away and actually pay for that extra hour but he said if we did that, we had to pay for tidbits and another drink. Not a very reasonable deal. So we just said we’ll finish up the last 2 songs or so then leave.

And our last song was SMAP’s “ダイナマイト” which we became so loud and high. Talk about making a grand exit. Haha…

Random thought:
Massu lives on happy pills and breathes happy air. That’s why he’s forever so 元気. He should share his happy pills with me so I can be forever 元気 as well.


Went ktv-ing with Per at KBox. Went for the KLunch promotion. Overstayed by one hour. Haha…it was damn fun. Only thing was the selection of songs were not that great. We couldn’t search for Japanese songs by artiste. And we ended up selecting Saya’s “想念你的歌” but singing it in Japanese…Yuna Ito’s “Endless Story”.

We really should do it again. 🙂

Got this from Shaz’s blog…

  1. A song by a Beatle:
    The Beatles – Yellow Submarine
  2. A song featuring piano as the main instrument:
    倉木麻衣 – I Sing A Song For You
    Kuraki Mai – I Sing A Song For You
  3. A song with a woman’s name in the title:
    F.I.R – Lydia
  4. A song with a man’s name in the title:
    周杰倫 – 霍元甲
    Jay Chou – Huo Yuan Jia
  5. A song about money:
    ABBA – Money Money Money
  6. A song with weather in the title:
    関ジャニ∞ – 大阪レイニーブルース
    Kanjani8 – Osaka Rainy Blues
  7. A song with parentheses in the title (these are parentheses):
    関ジャニ∞ – 桜援歌 (Oh! Enka)
    Kanjani8 – Sakura Tasuku Uta (Oh! Enka)
  8. A song made by a punk band:
    Green Day – American Idiot
  9. A song with the word “song” in the title:
    NewS – Love Song
  10. A song you love so much you stop and listen whenever you hear it/ put it on repeat mode and never get sick of it:
    NewS – チェリッシュ
    NewS – Cherish


Thank God the problem has been fixed and my blog is fine…

Something I did sometime ago from Cas’s blog. Most of it is quite true I’ll say.

the Peacemaker

you chose BX – your Enneagram type is NINE.

“I am at peace”

Peacemakers are receptive, good-natured, and supportive. They seek union with others and the world around them.

How to Get Along with Me

  • If you want me to do something, how you ask is important. I especially don’t like expectations or pressure.
  • I like to listen and to be of service, but don’t take advantage of this.
  • Listen until I finish speaking, even though I meander a bit.
  • Give me time to finish things and make decisions. It’s Ok to nudge me gently and nonjudgmentally.
  • Ask me questions to help me get clear.
  • Tell me when you like how I look. I’m not averse to flattery.
  • Hug me, show physical affection. It opens me up to my feelings.
  • I like a good discussion but not a confrontation.
  • Let me know you like what I’ve done or said.
  • Laugh with me and share in my enjoyment of life.

What I Like About Being a Nine

  • being nonjudgmental and accepting
  • caring for and being concerned about others
  • being able to relax and have a good time
  • knowing that most people enjoy my company; I’m easy to be around
  • my ability to see many different sides of an issue and to be a good mediator and facilitator
  • my heightened awareness of sensations, aesthetics, and the here and now
  • being able to go with the flow and feel one with the universe

What’s Hard About Being a Nine

  • being judged and misunderstood for being placid and/or indecisive
  • being critical of myself for lacking initiative and discipline
  • being too sensitive to criticism; taking every raised eyebrow and twitch of the mouth personally
  • being confused about what I really want
  • caring too much about what others will think of me
  • not being listened to or taken seriously

Nines as Children Often

  • feel ignored and that their wants, opinions, and feelings are unimportant
  • tune out a lot, especially when others argue
  • are “good” children: deny anger or keep it to themselves

Nines as Parents

  • are supportive, kind, and warm
  • are sometimes overly permissive or nondirective

Then from Nad’s blog.

Your Inner Child Is Scared

Like a kid, you tend to shy away from new experiences.
You prefer what’s tried and true – novelty is scary!
New foods, new places, and new friends are difficult for you to deal with.
Some say you’re predictable, but you enjoy being comfortable.

Your Japanese Name Is…

8 points

Haven’t had much to write about for the past 2 days except that we celebrated Dad’s birthday and watched the Jet Li movie, “Fearless“.

I’ve been tagged by Nadine.
# the tagged victim has to come up with 8 different points of their perfect lover.
# need to mention the sex of the target.
# Tag 8 victims to join this game & leave a comment on their comments saying they’ve been tagged.
# If tagged a 2nd time; no need to post

Target: Male

  1. non-smoker
  2. able to trust
  3. offer me hugs when I’m upset
  4. willing to dry my hair for me
  5. able to hold intellectual conversations
  6. thoughtful
  7. family oriented
  8. observant

Who I tag: Ling and anybody else who wants to do this.


And then let me explain my points.

Point 2:
I believe trust is a very important thing in relationships. I’m not going to have someone make me report my movements 24/7 just coz he thinks I’m going to run off with someone else. I still want to maintain my friendships. If you are going to suspect my love for you then why are we even together?

Point 3:
Hehe…he must not be stingy with his hugs. Must also offer me a shoulder to cry on.

Point 4:
This may seem a small matter to everyone but it means a lot to me.

Point 5:
I cannot stand people who talk rubbish or shoot off random words and then think they are so damn funny. When you do that, you’re telling me that you have no intelligence. I like people who are able to talk about different things, give opinions to certain issues, tell me what you think about something, share with me your ideas etc.

Point 6:
I don’t need him to shower me with expensive gifts. Simple things to show that he cares is fine.

Point 7:
He must respect his family and elders. He doesn’t have to go to the extent of being a mummy’s boy though.

Point 8:
He knows what I like or don’t like. Don’t need to know EVERYTHING but at least know the important things, that I don’t like cheese, butter, milk, cream etc. Surprise me by knowing little things like, I do not like ice-cream floats. Even some of my friends know that. (Right, Nad?)
