This was supposed to be posted on new year’s day but I was preoccupied with other things, and then the next day I went to KL for 2 days so I didn’t get a chance to finish this. Since last year I barely blogged at all, so this is gonna be super long.
I can’t believe 2013 is gone now. As usual, all you would hear is ‘how time flies… where did my 2013 go?’. I’m sad. Sad that I’m a year older, and it’s a constant reminder how old I am now. It makes me depressed. Anyways.
I didn’t do anything on new year’s eve to celebrate except sit at home in front of the TV and wait for the countdown. I was depressed, about my problems and also that it was the last day, last minute that I would be in my twenties. Oh God. Moving on. Continue after the cut below.
I didn’t care much before this but of course I didn’t wanna miss the wedding yesterday. I did however miss the after-wedding stuff. I only watched the part in the church and after that, because of all the ‘talk’ and the choir that sounded like a lullaby, I couldn’t keep my eyes opened anymore so I fell asleep only to wake up at 11 pm, exactly the time they finished broadcasting.
It was a traditional wedding.. boring but beautiful.
Kate was very simple. Her wedding gown was very simple to my surprise. Her hairdo was simple, her makeup was simple, everything was simple.. because you know, other celebrities had it grand. This wedding was very traditional.
I don’t know why but the wedding almost made me teary-eyed! Actually some of my friends in twitter also said the same thing – they cried. I guess I felt happy for Kate for having her own fairytale happening.
One thing that annoyed me the most – WHAT’S UP WITH PRINCE WILLIAM’S HEAD?!?!
Seriously. He used to be sooooo handsome, soooo hot… but now why is he BALDING?! He’s only 29 🙁 It annoys me to death… some people were making fun of it on twitter – saying he should use a hair treatment program. But seriously, he was the man of every girl’s dream. He was a very cute kid who grew into a handsome man… but now he looks very old due to the bald patch on his head 🙁
But Kate’s dress was so tight that she looks very skinny. I’m so jealous 🙁
It’s a pity that the late Lady Di didn’t get to witness her first son’s wedding. I still adore her. She was one of the most beautiful women of all time. It’s so sad that she had to go early.
I didn’t stay for the kiss but I did watch the clip on youtube. Awwwwwww. So sweet! But it was a very short kiss, not passionate one. Maybe they were shy 😛 *sighs* Kate Middleton is the luckiest girl in the world seeing that she was not from a royal family but married the popular royal bachelor. Now, does Prince Harry has a gf??? Maybe I still stand a chance *chokes*… At the time I’m writing this, youtube is rebroadcasting the wedding.. not watching it because it was quite boring lol
CONGRATULATIONS PRINCE WILLIAM & KATE MIDDLETON, THE DUKE & DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE!
Can’t wait to hear the news of their first child 😀
Titanic. A piece of history that never fails to amaze me, and chills me to the bone. I get extremely emotional and obsessed everytime I read about the tragedy. As I was browsing yahoo, came across this news.
LONDON (Reuters) – The Titanic hit an iceberg in 1912 because of a basic steering error, and only sank as fast as it did because an official persuaded the captain to continue sailing, an author said in an interview published on Wednesday.
Louise Patten, a writer and granddaughter of Titanic second officer Charles Lightoller, said the truth about what happened nearly 100 years ago had been hidden for fear of tarnishing the reputation of her grandfather, who later became a war hero.
Lightoller, the most senior officer to have survived the disaster, covered up the error in two inquiries on both sides of the Atlantic because he was worried it would bankrupt the ill-fated liner’s owners and put his colleagues out of a job.
“They could easily have avoided the iceberg if it wasn’t for the blunder,” Patten told the Daily Telegraph.
“Instead of steering Titanic safely round to the left of the iceberg, once it had been spotted dead ahead, the steersman, Robert Hitchins, had panicked and turned it the wrong way.”Patten, who made the revelations to coincide with the publication of her new novel “Good as Gold” into which her account of events are woven, said that the conversion from sail ships to steam meant there were two different steering systems.
Crucially, one system meant turning the wheel one way and the other in completely the opposite direction.
Once the mistake had been made, Patten added, “they only had four minutes to change course and by the time (first officer William) Murdoch spotted Hitchins’ mistake and then tried to rectify it, it was too late.”
Patten’s grandfather was not on watch at the time of the collision, but he was present at a final meeting of the ship’s officers before the Titanic went down.
There he heard not only about the fatal mistake but also the fact that J. Bruce Ismay, chairman of Titanic’s owner the White Star Line persuaded the captain to continue sailing, sinking the ship hours faster than would otherwise have happened.
“If Titanic had stood still, she would have survived at least until the rescue ship came and no one need have died,” Patten said.
The RMS Titanic was the world’s biggest passenger liner when it left Southampton, England, for New York on its maiden voyage on April 10, 1912. Four days into the trip, the ship hit an iceberg and sank, taking more than 1,500 passengers with it.

I’m speechless. Imagine, thousands of lives could have been saved had they stop sailing. Imagine that this tragedy never happened and Leo Dicaprio and Kate Winslett and James Cameron wouldn’t be part of Hollywood cinema history. I get very very sad/emotional everytime I think about the women in fear, babies and kids drowning, animals not knowing what’s coming, oh the chaos in that ship. How the survivors had to witness their relatives or families or somebody they befriended on the ship sank together with the ship and never to be found again, and the ocean being the burial ground for thousands of lives… being haunted by those images and the sound of people screaming as they plunge to their death.. their belongings to be buried deep into the sea until the explorers found the wreck and dug up the pieces which are now artifacts for the public to see. Urgh, seeing the wreck gave me some sort of chills that words can’t describe.
Oh how this story fascinates me. I’m starting to get the chills now.
If only I had the time machine. If only I could witness. If only I could tell them to stop sailing. If only I could change history. It’s extremely sad to know this piece of information now after being kept secret for almost 100 years. Speaking of Titanic, have anyone watched Titanic II?
Now, I didn’t think this was real until I saw the trailer!
WHAT THE FUCK, right?
Never thought there’d be Titanic II and surprisingly it has nothing to do with the tragedy or the first James Cameron movie o.O;
It’s all just pretty much a predictable story. In 2012 they made a new ship called Titanic II (how original), had its first maiden voyage on the anniversary of the real Titanic tragedy, goes through the SAME course and guess what? A fricken tsunami hurls an ICEBERG (oh surprise surprise!) and guess what happens then? I give you one guess…
Why would anyone make a stupid movie like this? It has bad reviews and if you can’t beat the best epic of all time, don’t fucking embarrass yourself. At least be original! I commented on youtube and here’s what my movie would be like if I wanted to make a Titanic II:
The ship would be haunted by 1500 ppl that drowned, and they are resurrected from the sea as zombies and kill people onboard, with Jack as head zombie captain, take control of the ship and sail to its doom. Oh & zombie Jack would find zombie Rose, and make dozens of zombie babies and then sinks with their babies with the ship for the 2nd time. My movie would be a huge hit compared to this crap.
Haha that’s actually my ‘movie’ for my scriptwriting class, except it didn’t have anything to do with Titanic.. but it did have zombies on a cruise ship 😀 But for the sake of curiosity I shall download this movie and waste 1.5 hours of my time.. be prepared to hear me moan about how I want my 1.5 hours back. I can’t comment much because I haven’t seen it.. yet.
At least it’s not a remake which is good.. unlike ‘Children of the Corn‘.. totally crapzilla.
Since yesterday I’ve been obsessed with the Titanic story...AGAIN.
I don’t know why, the story of Titanic still fascinates me till this day. It gives me goosebumps just to see the rusty metals buried 12000+ feet underneath the Atlantic ocean.. I was watching a documentary on youtube last night where they took a HD cam down the water and we could see in clear high definition view of the decaying wreckage.. and you can still see some of the everyday stuff at the bottom that you couldn’t see before.. it’s creepy yet at the same time it makes me really, really sad. Imagining all the people that was on board.. panicking.. kids, old people.. men & women.. whose life ended in the water, buried there forever.. kids who would never see their future as a grown up.. families that would never return home again.. and a ship that never reached its first destination.
How ironic that the unsinkable ship sank on its first journey? Actually it was first quoted as ‘virtually unsinkable’ but they took the ‘virtually’ out and everyone believes that it could never sink.
It’s even disturbing to see the ship sinks.. when I watched the first black and white movie, and then James Cameron’s Titanic, I can’t imagine what the people in the lifeboat must have felt at that time.. I like to position myself in the situation.. because I usually become obsessed with these things between 2am-6am so I love to turn off the lights, watch the video and imagine myself there… it’s… very… disturbing… *shudders*
I so wish I can go to the Titanic artifacts museum.. you know, some people argued that it’s wrong to take those things.. it’s like graverobbing.. for me, I don’t think so. We should preserve whatever we can find so that future generations, like us for example, could see what people on board used, or had, as a remembrance of the tragedy that took their lives. Unlike 9/11, we had footage to remember everything from the moment the plane crashed into the building until the towers collapsed… but we only have artifacts to remember titanic.. in a couple of hundred years later, there’d be nothing left of Titanic down there I presume.. so I’m thankful for explorers that found Titanic and now giving us a clear view of the ‘grave site’ in high definition… it’s disturbing and sad to think what kind of lives the owner of the stuff found (artifacts) had, how they felt etc when you look at the things…
I do however think it’s sickening how they make money and become rich from those artifacts.
Let’s give a moment of silence to remember those lives lost at the sea.
I decided to blog about this because this month marks the 98th anniversary of the sinking of Titanic.. in 2012, it would be 100 years the Titanic have sunk.
Also since this post is about remembering an anniversary… I would like another moment of silence for the victims of COLUMBINE HIGH SCHOOL SHOOTING (April 20th 1999). As I used to be obsessed for years about the Columbine shooting so since this shared the same month so why not. Also happy belated birthday Eric Harris.
Okay, done with this sad stuff. I’ll blog about something happy soon!
