I felt like I was a giant watching little clockwork toys taking to the stage inÂ a little musical box.
Note: Don’t ever ever ever buy RM90 seats. Call me the next time some big name musical decides to come to Malaysia and utilizes Istana Budaya instead….or even KLPAC(a little bias here as I’ve not seen it for myself, only heard rave reviews about the place).
I wouldn’t KNOW if the thing sucked. I was looking down from an angle. If I jumped off my row of seats, I would die. I was THAT high up and FAR away from the stage. I know how much my father hates bad seats because it’ll be 2 hours(movies are about 2 hours too) of his life wasted. Felt quite bad also because it was I who made heck of a lot of noise about how I am oh so very pitiful that I didn’t get to see Saturday Night Fever boohoohoo and can I PLEASE see Grease??
Thank god for Optical Zoom.
Okay lah, fun enough to make me come home to download all the Grease songs.
L-r: Aud, Jia Min, Hsin.
Someone shouted, “JOLENE LAI PEI SHAN!!!” when I was going down the escalator after the show. EH EH EH!! HSIN EE!! JIA MIN!!! AUDREY!!! AUDREY IS BACK FROM US ALREADY(I know that..but still, seeing it is believing it mah:P).
Apparently they were oggling my shoes before they looked up and realised that it was me. HAHAHAHA. Typical girls lah!!:D *hugs* So good to see them. And see how pretty they looked, all dolled up for the occasion? These girls mad one lah. Saved up for the RM200 seats AND had a good time.
Since I had my hair up with a chopstick the entire day, I had nice curls to camwhore with! That’s my brother’s toes by the way. He was playing Dota when I asked him to help me to take a picture of my hair.
Don’t know lah if I should go for straight hair or curls. Thinking of rebonding. I know, I’m like FOUR years behind time. It’s just so typical of me to wait for something to go wayyy out of fashion before jumping into it. Wait, no. No. It’s usually the case of me holding on to a certain style for SOOOO long that it comes back in fashion.
Oh yeah! I finally watched The Da Vinci Code at Central Square(the only go-able shopping mall in Sungai Petani. Which is just *slightly* better than Summit USJ.). After our class ended at 11 o’clock..we decided to catch the 11.30am show. I called up the woman and asked if there were still tickets and she aptly replied, “Ohhh..banyak lagi.”
Well, that’s Kedah for you.
Most of the movies these days are book adaptations and I was quite upset with myself that I have not finished reading the book. I made it a point to read all the books before heading to the cinemas. Here I am, catching up on some reading in the elevator.
GSC offers the cheapest student rates around. PLUS this GSC is located in a small town. Go check the websites if you don’t know what I’m talking about. Seems that big cities have higher ticket prices.
Only RM4!! ne ne ni bu bu.
I don’t know why the movies got such bad reviews. Chee Kiang was telling me that he fell asleep when they spoke french. He watched it with his scholarly friends(Kai Lin, Charming Chun Leen, FuiChin(did u go?) and Britt.. not sure who were the rest.:)) when they went to Singapore for their university interviews. Obviously lah, no Malay subtitles to explain to you ma. There weren’t even english subtitles for the French part. Kakaka..go Singapore and see somemore lah:D
But I liked it!! I went with Lie Yuen, Narjit, Ah Thong and Steven. Since I only read till the part where Teabing brings them into London with his private jet(i’m a slow reader, you got a problem? *turns tables over HK-gangster style*..Andy see how you influenced me.. haha)… so up till that part,Â Narjit, Lie Yuen and I were squealing about how they missed out some parts and how it’s not like that andÂ what was actually said instead. After that part, Narjit andÂ Lie YuenÂ whispered to each other excitedlyÂ and leaving me to go, “Whatwhatwhat??” only to be replied with annoyed “YOU SEE LAAA!!!”s from the both of them.
I guess it’s fun to have read HALF the book and then watch the movie. Something different right. Like having dessert half way through dinner. And then continuing with dinner after that. Different parts of your taste buds have been stimulated. Gives a whole new perspective.
I LIKED THE MOVIE!!
Life is so much better now that I have installed an aircon in my room in Kedah. Gone are the days where I would slide all over the floor crying about how hot it is and feel the oil ooze out from my pores.
Mr. Aircon Man installing an aircon. He made such a mess with the drillings and stuff.. everything in my room was covered in brick and cement powder.:( A good excuse for spring cleaning..spent nearly 4 hours sweeping, mopping and wiping everything that has a surface.
Strange thing though, the next morning, during class, I received an sms.
“Hi…I am the airconman yesterday. Everthing find?”
This must be some new form of customer service.
I replied, “Yea, it’s fine. Thank you very much.”
“Have a nice day ^^ ” came the reply. Got emoticon somemore.
“Hehe. Thanks. You too.” I was still playing the grateful customer.
“So you study here?” he queried.
Okay. Definitely not part of his company’s customer service policy already.
When Chee Kiang called, I told him, “Hehe! I installed my aircon yesterday and the aircon man smsing me today. Aircon man hitting on me leh!”
“Don’t perasan kay!” he said.
“Cannot perasan abit issit now! Cis! Let me perasan for awhile ma. Hahaha.”
But since the aircon man spoke in passable english(which is a pleasant surprise), I now even know about his grand hopes for the future.
“ur right .. kedah damn sien. i wan go back to penang next yr. become sub contractor there instead.”
“Icic..good luck to you then”
By the way, it’s not the guy in the photo. It’s another one who was doing the outside unit. The one in the photo reminded me of some kungfu guy what with the big oversized V shaped t-shirt and big puffy track pants.
I just find it damn amusing that I was smsing my aircon man. But after awhile I got bored and stopped replying and took a nap in my newly air conditioned room instead.
