Look what I did!
My hometown video!
Okay, so half of it is recycled footage, and some new. If you know me, you’d know that I live in 2 places now – Ipoh, which is my hometown where I was born, and Selangor (Kuala Lumpur) which is where I’ve been living for 3 years now. I also used clips from our tourism promo videos so you’d get a basic idea what Malaysia is like which I could not cover. Then some clips in Ipoh (if you see like peaceful town without tall buildings, that’s Ipoh lol) and Kuala Lumpur (obviously with the tall buildings and major traffic jams). The beginning and ending of the video (after tourism clips) is my neighborhood in Ipoh!
Hope you enjoy it. It’s not what I had expected it to be but oh well. Now I need to get some shut eye for an hour or so.
PS: Those who are in the video, don’t sue me! lol.
Yesterday I was so depressed. See this?
That is my extra credit project that I did on The Evil Dead movie. See the word “Linda”? Well that piece fucking fell out, peeled itself off and I guess I can say – gone with the wind. So My board that I did 1 1/2 days straight until 6.30 am yesterday was fucked. Blah. I shouldn’t care much because it’s only 5 marks extra but still, that thing is ruined. I”m terribly upset when things are not perfect.
Other than that, there was replacement class yesterday for Film Appreciation and we watched SE7EN. Brad Pitt is hot. I got bored during the first half of the movie but got into it during the middle. It’s fun when you’re watching it with friends, cuz you don’t fall asleep unexpectedly lol. The beginning is too slow for me. Oh and at least something else made me happy – I got 10/10 for my Charlie Chaplin movie analysis that we did Friday, 2 weeks ago, yay.
Last night I was up all night and after researching, I finally figured out how to put movies in my Nintendo DS Lite. So now I can have movies or clips to watch wherever I go when I’m bored. I should buy a new micro sdhc card to store movies and mp3 for my nintendo ds. Oh I also found Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side: First Love game for the DS. OMG OMG it’s like my favorite game of all time on PS2, and I so didn’t know it’s the same one for the DS. I’m SOOOOO happy. The only downside is the EVS. They can’t pronounce certain Japanese surname you put in.. so you have to put the most common one like Yamada or Abe or something. That sucks. Plus the space is limited, so you can’t put names like Matsumoto, Tachibana, Watanabe etc in hiragana unless you know kanji. But at least in the DS version, you can ‘touch’ the guys you date.. hehe. Now I miss the PS2 version.. I so wanna play it now… ! It’s the only original PS2 game that I bought, online, imported from Hong Kong some more (because no original PS2 games in Malaysia unless it’s at Sony, but extremely limited selection)… that’s how much I love that game.
When I was buying the micro sdhc card last Monday, I was talking to the guy while waiting for them to test out my card. I remember he said he’s not into console games.. the last thing he played was the nintendo game boy, the black and white one lol. That’s old. He said only his mom plays console game, and I was like cool! My mom doesn’t know how lol. He said she only plays casino game lol.The only game that I know how to play is Blackjack. I’ve tried other game but I have no clue what I was doing. If only I can play casino games for real, I’d master my ‘techniques’ and win myself some moolah. At least I won’t be so broke
Ok that’s all. I’ll blog later cuz now I have to go back to being stressed about my 3DS MAX final project which is due this Saturday. F-U-C-K. I guess I”d have 2 more sleepless nights.
Tomorrow is HALLOWEEN! YAY!!!!! And we’re watching Rocky Horror Picture Show in class, woot.
Sorry I haven’t been blogging but to answer Seebe’s question in the previous post’s comment section, YES, I GOT A DS LITE, WOOT WOOT!
So took me only one sleepless night to bug mom to let me to borrow her money first last Tuesday. I just couldn’t stand it anymore and when I want something so badly, I must get it asap, by hook or by crook. Basically I was just going into a deep depression, and I couldn’t let that happen as I only have 2 weeks left for this semester.
My new Nintendo DS Lite:
- 1 original DS Lite (Metallic Rose)
- DS Pouch
- R4 SDHC (a new ‘fake/clone’ version that supports microSDHC card)
- 50+ preinstalled games in the MicroSDHC card
- HORI screen protector
Cost: RM700 (USD$196)
I’m not sure if it’s expensive or not because I had the pouch and hori screen protector thrown in, rounding all up to RM700 because mom is an expert in bargaining. That guy was gonna give me non-branded screen protector but luckily I noticed and asked to change to HORI. I bought it at Sungei Wang, even though I read in forums NOT to buy it there x.x Didn’t care. lol.
At first, I was not so fond of R4. I was still confused between DSTT or EDGE (as to which is better) but I had no choice. I figured, if this new R4 won’t support latest games then I could just buy new flash card, but so far it’s been good. Firmware is updated constantly. All games that I’ve tried played smoothly. Plus, lots of menu layout I can choose from since it’s the same as old R4. HERE’S my current menu layout. The only downside is the USB card reader, which is faulty for a lot of people. So I have to find a new USB card reader…
So I’m EXTREMELY HAPPY that I got the metallic rose color, which is my first choice (second being crimson black). They don’t have metallic rose color in Ipoh. And in Ipoh, they sell it at around RM660 without pouch or screen protector (with EDGE or DSTT card). Wondering how come Tesco Ipoh sells it at RM780…hmm
So since last week, I’ve been obsessing with my ndsl. I have too many games that I love. Hard to say which game I’m addicted to, cuz there’s at least 10+ that I’m addicted to which includes Animal Crossing: Wild World, Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan!, Cooking Mama 2, Brain Age 2, and many more..
Last Saturday I had replacement class for Animation 2, and Helmi was sitting next to me.. I asked him the direction to digital mall (mall dedicated to just IT and gadgets) in PJ cuz Low Yatt (another mall in KL) is too far away. Finally today I tried to find my way there and I found it! Fucking finally. They sell NDSL for RM680 there, with a starter set (kinda ugly pouch, another extra stylus, screen protector and EDGE card). Oh well, just Rm20 cheaper. I bough a new 4GB micro sdhc card for my R4 and it works just fine Now I can store more games hehe. I was worried the sdhc card won’t work but the dudes at the phone store were nice enough to test it out for me and stuff XD One guy is funny and talkative too hehe. Guess they’ll do anything for someone to fork out RM40 huh? Oh I also bought new printer inks, yay.
There’s a pirated dvd store there, ARGH SO MANY MOVIES. I want the Dr. Who DVD set season 1,2,3,4! MUST GET MUST GET ARGH! I don’t think I’ve seen Dr. Who set anywhere else.. MUST GET. Omg. Okay I’m going to play my ndsl then get a short nap and get up early cuz I need to finish my extra credit assignment today.My tummy feels so stuffed, I think I ate too much today. I swear, once my semester is done, I’m gonna start my own weight loss program, with very strict diet and exercise routine! Before I can’t fit into my clothes…
Need to blog more!
PS: Oh glad I didn’t wait to import NDSi which will be releasing next month in Japan, it’s gonna cost USD$300, yowza!
I reached KL at 6 am last Friday. That Friday was LONG and interesting to me so I’ll make a new entry for it later cuz it’s gonna be LONG.
The weekends? I was bored to death, I was depressed, I was in no mood to do anything.. it’s like nothing I do interest me. So I spent 2 whole days being friggin addicted to Warioware: Touched! game for the DS Lite on my laptop. Gah that game is so evil. So friggin addictive. Story about how I came to know the game in my next entry later.
Today was an interesting day for me. I love it when I go to class and be with my friends, whom I’m comfortable to act lesbo-ish with, lol. By that I mean just hugging and being close friends, you sick pervert. Cures my depression temporarily. So me and Skyler are both addicted to Warioware: Touched! AND DS Lite.. funny cuz she was so against it before, lol. Heh, I’ve spread my new obsession around. Unfortunately the more I’m obsessed with, the more things keep rubbing in my face. So I brought my laptop and class ended early cuz we decided not to watch THANK YOU FOR SMOKING movie in class.. so I was showing everyone the warioware game in my laptop.. haha omg, it was SO MUCH FUN.. I was acting so retardedly in class, especially when the game asks you to use the mic.. so I was screaming and yelling and talking gibberish to my laptop out loud like a total retard. A few people were surrounding me and we were laughing like there’s no tomorrow. And when I first mentioned warioware and nintendo ds lite to Skyler, suddenly Joe took out a pink DS Lite out of his bag and showed it to me.. great, more people with the console And me – none. It’s funny though cuz he was holding a PINK one.. but it was his sisters. Should have asked to play it cuz he had so many games in it.
Then after that me and Skyler went to lunch and we watched MadTV clips from my laptop while eating until 12 pm, with a few other people joined us and we were laughing like mad. They had to go to meeting and I don’t wanna be bored to death for 2 hours so I decided to follow them to meeting lol. So after meeting was over, me and Skyler ‘stole’ Imara’s DS Lite and played warioware lol. I wanted to know how much she bought it but turns out her boyfriend bought it for her.. omg So I was all whiny, and they all said how everyone would go annoy their bf now.. I said that’s what I did like back in the days with my ex but those days are over.. honestly… I’m not denying that I felt quite embarassed… I have nothing to show people.. all I have to show is my cellphone, and because my ex bought that for me, it doesn’t count anymore.. the thing some girls like to do is brag about their bf.. and how much their bf spends on them for the sake of showing off.. so to quote one of the girls earlier, “we want expensive stuff, not cheap jeweleries” and “money don’t buy love… wrong“, well something along those lines. Some friends I have huh? lol. Oh well.
Anyways after watching Skyler hogging Imara’s DS Lite, Jackie was nagging me to go to class lol. So I went to animation class.. I was soooo sleepy cuz I didn’t sleep. I was up all night watching youtube on ds lite stuff (can you tell how obsessed I am?). Suddenly a man came in and said I wasn’t supposed to use the comp cuz they haven’t made police report.. I assume the two missing monitors were stolen. Ack.
After that went to return my library books.. haha the librarian, who is a guy, was soooo funny.. he ended up like telling stories and making jokes and such. I prefer him than that other jackass. And I was supposed to pay $6 late penalties but he didn’t say anything.. So yay, I bought McDonalds for dinner with that extra money.
That’s my day. Phew. Long story. Another long one coming up later. I’ll prolly slip into depression again tomorrow, oh well.
I’m going back to KL tonight. Feels sad to leave my cat and her kittens here. Oh well.
I’m feeling terribly depressed now.. well been depressed for the past week. I always get depressed when I see my old high school mates doing better than I am. Most depressing is that most of them are either engaged or married and what am I doing? Alone, pathetic, doing a DIPLOMA when I’m 24 when everyone else is doing masters already? Omg, how pathetic can I be? I hope I won’t be old and alone living with 100 cats and people calling me “The Cat Lady”. I’m about to be 25, I should have some sort of achievement.. something big. People can become millionaire by early 20s.. what the hell am I doing? This is not what I had in mind. I want to be successful by 25. I want myself known. I want people to be proud of me. And yes, I should start thinking about having a family for a lot of reasons. Have I achieved any of that? A big fat no.
I want to turn my life around before I’m 30. And get married asap. Before I sound so pathetic to everyone else who is living happily with their husband, perhaps kids too. My biological clock is ticking. I’m prolly being melodramatic but I don’t know.. when I broke up with my ex, I thought, god I”m finally free.. I like being single.. but as time passed, I feel the urge of you know, having a family.. kids of my own.. I guess that ‘motherly instinct’ just came.. but hey, Jamie Lynn Spears is a mother at 16, and I’m surprised to say I feel jealous. Sigh. It’s just depressing you know, not to have the person who are there for you in real life, take you to places, give you presents, buy you expensive dinner, promise you heaven…and to show off to people. Even my 20 year old cousin is starting to think about marriage, COME ON! If she gets married before me, omg, I’m so killing myself. I’m better off dead than live in humiliation, without a husband.
Now I understand why my friends are so frustrated about not getting married before when they’re just in early 20′s.
I hate when I’m depressed. All these stupid questions and thoughts lingers in my mind.
