Yesterday I finally downloaded the finale for seasons 1 of GLEE. I was surprised that even though with constant crashing, and bandwidth throttling, slow download.. using my phone as modem, I still managed to download it. I’m happy.
I’m not going to spoil anything though. Finally spent some time today to watch the last few episodes that I haven’t watched yet.. from the episode with Neil Patrick Harris. I’m sad that Glee is over now.. but it’s coming back in September for season 2, I can’t wait! You know I have never been addicted to a TV show since Charmed. I don’t watch hour-long TV show because they bore me, except maybe a few. Oh and my mom has started to watch it too, and wanted to watch the finale today.. which is a huge shock since she has NEVER watched American TV show except a bit of Charmed, and that she was against Glee at first. She thinks Lea Michelle (who plays Rachel Berry) is an amazing singer.
My friend thinks Glee is like High School Musical. Well if you think about it, it kinda is but different in so many levels. I’m a fan of HSM but Glee is far from HSM. HSM is so typical Disney movie, where it’s all very cliche. Cute jock wants to sing, but afraid he’ll be ridiculed by his team mates, but then his team mates will also join, then includes the pretty girl who’s in love with the jock.. then there’s the rival…sounds a lot like Glee huh?
What’s different about Glee is that it deals with adult theme. The language also is not really appropriate for kids.. like for example, Sue Sylvester calling Mr William Schuester a “manwhore” and “slut”. The rest is typical.. you have different labels in the Glee club.. like the over-achiever annoying Rachel, the badass Puck, the cute jock Finn, the goth/emo weirdo Tina, the black sista Mercedes, the used-to-be-popular pregnant Quinn, the cheerleaders Santana and Brittany, the disabled kid Artie, the other Asian Mike, the other black (forgot his name), and the gay Kurt.
The best character in the series would have to be Sue Sylvester for me. I looooove Jane Lynch. She’s this sarcastic bitch that constantly insults Mr Schue (and his hair and chin) and despise the Glee club. Everything that Sue says never fail to make me laugh… I’ll paste some quotes from Sue that I found online:
Sue Sylvester: [writing in journal] Glee club. Every time I try to destroy that clutch of scab-eating mouth breathers it only comes back stronger like some sexually ambiguous horror movie villain. Here I am, about to turn 30, and I’ve sacrificed everything only to be shanghaied by the bi-curious machinations of a kabal of doughy misshapen teens. Am I missing something, Journal? Is it me? Of course its not me. Its Will Schuester. What is it about him, Journal? Is it the arrogant smirk? Is it the store-bought home perm? You know, Journal, I noticed something yesterday. Of course. Its coming clear to me now. If I cant destroy the club, I will have to destroy the man!
Sue Sylvester: [to Santana and Brittany] Ladies, I misjudged you. You may be the two stupidest teens I’ve ever encountered. And that’s saying something. I once taught a cheerleading seminar to a young Sarah Palin.
Will Schuester: Okay look Sue. If you’re back let’s bury the hatchet.
Sue Sylvester: I won’t be burying any hatchets William unless I happen to get a clear shot to your groin. You humiliated me.
Will Schuester: You did this to yourself Sue. All I did was enjoy watching it happen.
Sue Sylvester: Yeah, well enjoy this William. Now that I’m back and my position is secured I will not stop until you’re fired and your little Glee Club is annihilated into oblivion.
Will Schuester: Bring it.
Sue Sylvester: Oh I will bring it, William. You know what else I’m gonna to bring? I’m gonna bring some Asian cookery to wipe your head with. Cause right now you’ve got enough product in your hair to season a wok.
Here’s an example of how awesome Sue is.. this clip shows some of her hair insults for Mr Schuester:
Sue Sylvester is AWESOME. Actually, Jane Lynch is awesome. I’ve seen a few movies and she’s that sarcastic in them.. like in ‘Role Models‘, ‘Another Cinderella Story‘.. ‘Two & A Half Men‘.. etc.
Love the songs in Glee too. Currently I’m so addicted to “Run Joey Run“… the video is like pure orgasmic because it has Finn, Puck and Jesse. I’m a sucker for guys in white shirt and black leather jacket and black pants. Is it getting hot in here??
(video is flipped to avoid being taken down by youtube)
The craziest episode would have to be The Gaga episode.. all of them with Gaga inspired clothing.. so ridiculous! Haha.. Tina with the bubble dress, and Kurt with I think 10 inch heels? And Rachel with dress filled with stuffed animals..then the boys in KISS makeup..
Anyways, the finale almost made me cry. And oh well, no more Jesse and Vocal Adrenaline (their rival team). Jesse is so cute but too bad he’s gay in real life. So yeah, HSM maybe can be called the cleaner version of Glee, lol. Oh and Neil Patrick Harris was AWESOME in one episode Too bad Neil is also gay -.- You know, it’d be interesting if Jesse was paired up with Kurt instead of Rachel.. a gay relationship.. I wanna see Kurt in a relationship with a guy in seasons 2 even though he has the hot for Finn, lol.
It’s 5 am now so I better sleep.. mom was sleeping on my sofa aka bed, so I’ve been up all night watching stuff and putting up with my cat’s crazyness cuz she was bored so she didn’t shut up or sit still for almost 5 hours.. NONSTOP. Talk about driving me crazy. Now I need sleep.. if not I’d need like a dozen of wrinkle creams later for my under eyes @_@ Wait, I already do…. T___T
I have post #GleeKL syndrome.
Whenever I hear the ‘Don’t Stop Believing‘ music on Star World Asia (the channel that airs Glee), I’d get up and prepare myself to dance… it’s infectious. It was so much fun that most of us want more, and are having the same post #GleeKL syndrome.
So, I’m currently trying to take my mind off the whole Glee thing because it’s driving me nuts. I’m still happy to be part of Malaysian ‘history’ as this is the first huge flash mob that is covered by a TV station. If you haven’t seen the Star World Asia’s promo on it that is shown on TV, here it is.
Anyways, I’ll be working on Sinfully Delicious (my food blog) tonight so that it won’t look abandoned anymore, and I could actually start posting. Seriously, I gotta stop abandoning my blogs because it’s such a waste financially -___-
It was AWESOME-NESS!!!!!!!!!
OMG ADRENALINE RUSH!
Be prepared… soon to be LONG entry with videos & pictures!
EDIT// We were on the news!
Okay, it was a bit obvious because there were loads, I mean LAODS of people joining in at the last minute.. it was kinda obvious.. plus everyone has been taking pictures with the Glee sign, some dressed up, some with big cameras.. so we screwed up a bit with the random spontaneous flash mob part.. but hey, we had a BLAST and everyone enjoyed it!
The mob was held at The Garden. Everybody thought it’d be at Midvalley. We all met up at the ballroom, and was given number. This would separate us into groups. I reached there at about12.20 pm and I was put in 2B.. which would be for 2nd floor.. aww too bad I wanted to be near the kids lol. Anyways, we waited with our group and around 12.45 pm or so we walked to Midvalley and waited there. Then we walked back to the secret location… and my group was near the bridge.. and EVERYONE, I mean EVERYONE was leaning against the railing/bridge etc looking down! Talk about being too obvious! Hahaha.. it’s so funny when passerby started to look down wondering what the hell is hudreds of people looking at and there’s actually nothing???….yet. Busted.
Suddenly the music started at around 2-ish pm and that was it! SHOWTIME!
Everybody was dancing like there’s no tomorrow! So much fun! Couldn’t see the kids though because there was too many people that we were spread along the bridges.. so I just kept dancing to the end. Then after it’s done.. some people forgot to disperse naturally.. everybody was rushing down, taking pictures and stuff.. of course tv people was there covering the event. Then after a while, suddenly the music starts again! wtf. I was queuing up to do the promo thing. Then everybody started screaming and dancing again.. an encore! Haha only in Malaysia’s flash mob 2nd round because Glee is just too much fun.. so it was just a random spontaneous dance … and everybody was just like dancing like mad. Then everybody was screaming “WE WANT MORE!! WE WANT MORE!!” Hahaha… too bad, had to end. Then pics and stuff.
I felt like a temporary celebrity! Except no one asked for my autograph. Shucks.
It was so hot, I was so sweating. And I also made a new friend! Finally broke out of my antisocial awkward phase. After that went to buy food with my new friend then we went back home. And I took a nap because I only had an hour sleep. Too excited okay!
Overall, it was a MAJOR fun event! Reconnecting Glee fans in Malaysia, expressing our love for Glee! I can’t wait until they show the TV version on Star World this Wednesday before the new season of Glee starts. Thank you Random Alphabet for this opportunity!! This has been the my highlight of the year and I’ve never had this much fun in ages.. since I absolutely love dancing!
Some people might think, after watching 1 video with the kids video and quickly assume that it’s a failed flash mob.. well we were spread out silly! You only see one part of it!
Check out twitter with the hashtag #GleeKL (do a search), everyone’s buzzing! Still waiting for pictures to post.
I found this picture in RA’s facebook. Wtf the angle makes me look like I’m obese haha (but I’m not that fat ok!) but oh God, I look like I was in a super Gleek hyper mode! Actually I was just doing the L sign because everyone was doing it.. that’s my new friend beside me who was probably watching me in disbelief or laughing at me for being a camwhore.. or a diva? o___O;;;? Nah…….!
This entry will be updated constantly with pictures and videos that I’ve found online. And I will write about my first flashmob experience very soon so come back to this entry again! But to start, here’s a video someone uploaded, which is a promo for Astro’s Star World TV (Asia’s channel that airs Glee) and this was my group’s shot! Haha. Can you spot me???
Finally found a video with the bridge view.. can see myself dancing! (I’m next to a striped shirt guy, with white sling back) Can you spot me??
This is the ‘encore’ part, where we did a 2nd round! Haha, I don’t think that’s been done before?? Usually after a flash mob people would just disperse and that’s it.. but I guess this is Malaysian style? ENCORE!!!!!!!!!!!!
The encore part was the most fun! I was somewhere at the back in the video, but you can’t see me.. but it was hella fun, because that was not planned, and it was spontaneous fun..!
EDIT// OMG Can’t keep up. So many new videos and photos emerged! And most of us are still NOT OVER #GleeKL yet! Everybody misses it including me and watching all the mob videos posted on youtube brings back tears.. it was THE BEST DAMN EXPERIENCE

I went to my first gLee KL flash mob rehearsal tonight (I didn’t go on Tuesday because my uncle was here) and it was so much FUN despite me being alone and looking/feeling very awkward there, haha… I didn’t expect such a huge crowd so I suddenly went all extremely shy and just fiddled with my phone like a noob geek.. oops! But when the dance start, I was crazy! It was CRAZY! I’m all icky from the sweat and my whole body is aching now (gonna stick lots of SALONPAS heating patches tonight or rub LOADS of Tiger heating muscle rub at my aching spots) so just a short blog before I take a shower, watch a bit of movie then sleep.
Then tomorrow’s another long day – my junior’s graduation showcase (I’m curious so I wanna go) then at night, another full body workout at gLee flash mob rehearsal before the BIG day on Saturday.. and after that, it’s sunday.. which is……………………..
I seriously have no idea where I’m gonna take my mom to eat this Sunday. I always take her to dine out on mother’s day… last year I took her to an Indonesian Bali food restaurant and cost me like RM100 O___________O;
This year.. might have to be on a budget a bit. You’ll know why soon.
Anyways, if you’re thinking of something to give to your mom on mother’s day, a random suggestion is photo cards.. you could never go wrong with anything personalized.. it’ll touch your mother’s heart. But if you’re really on a budget, I suggest MAKING something.. you can bake for your mom, you can create something, draw something, anything. What matters is not how expensive the item is, but the fact that it comes from your heart.
Now I gotta hit the shower and sleep! I’m beat.
PS: I’ll blog tomorrow about my Glee rehearsal.
I just found out today, after reading a retweet by my friend, that we’re having our own Glee flashmob! Woot!
I’m SO THERE. Being a huge GLEE fan and all.
At first I was hesitating, since I just found out about it today and then the first rehearsal is TOMORROW. I don’t know the dance! But then after watching the video, I learned the dance in an hour. It’s a piece of chocolate frosting oreo cheesecake. Easy to learn. So if you haven’t registered or don’t even know about the flash mob or a huge fan of Glee, what are you waiting for? JOIN IN. The more the better. This would be my first flash mob. Last time they wanted to do an MJ flashmob right after his death but it got canceled. I was sad.
Join in the fun at the Glee Flashmob Dance Kuala Lumpur!
