I love you without anyone knowing it...[updated]

Today, I began my day with an intention to go to the Career Exhibition at Midvalley with few close friends. At 11am, I received a morning call from my friend;
"Nad,today's plan is cancelled"
I replied, "Why?" Farhana said, "The career booths will only be opened tomorrow". Here's a thing; I woke up early for one purpose i.e To attend the career exhibition but it is cancelled. I tried to continue sleeping but I couldn't :(



Reading LAW is undeniably good. But since I enrolled into Matric IIUM (Petaling Jaya) and start learning law, there is something I'm lacking at. I always love Mathematics & Additional Mathematics but so far, **studying law has nothing to do with numbers unless in Probate,Company Law & Banking Law (maybe). I start to forget what tangen, sinus etc are (hehe) but luckily I have Sudoku & this colourful Cube (it's my replacement for Mathematics)


try to solve this...

**the appropriate term is 'reading', but I'm afraid people misunderstand that law students only read & memorize the laws; the reality is WE DON'T! (at least I don't). Law is to be understood and not to be memorized!!remember that!)

Yesterday, when I was busy looking for new MVs, I came across one MV entitled "Love is Punishment by K.will". I am always a fan of K.Will (not a big fan but I can't help to love his voice since I first listened to his in A Love To Kill OST). 'Love is Punishment' is actually a theme song for a korean drama called 'Brilliant Legacy'. I have a knowledge about the drama (plus the main actor is someone I'm familiar with; Seunggi from 3 Days 2 Nights) but I never had a chance to watch it. I don't know why but I was touched when I listened to it for the first time.
"I believed LOVE was happiness; LOVE that can't be spoken is a punishment from the heaven"

I don't get carried away by those lyrics because there is no such punishment from heaven.ehe :D But, what I'm trying to emphasize here is that the lyrics give a hint that it's an emotional burden for not be able to tell someone you love that you actually love him or her. I'm always positive that LOVE is very difficult to be explained. Sometimes it can't be explained or expressed by words or even gestures. But, it's important to confess to the person you love. No matter what it takes; courage or tears, tell them that you love him or her. LOVE is a happiness and it's surely not a punishment (nvm K.Will,I still love your song.ehe). Hmm...I don't know when I'll be free from workloads (which are keep increasing day by day) but I hope I'll find time to watch 'Brilliant Legacy'.

I love you without anyone knowing it...
(hehe...it's part of the lyrics)


As I promised that I would inform you about any update on Dream (starred by Kim Bum, Joon Ji Mo & Son DamBi). The drama premiered on July 27 at #SBS. This is the trailer (credit to the person who uploaded it on youtube)

Breathless

I planned to update my blog yesterday but the wireless connection has deprived me from doing so. I felt like my freedom of expression was at stake.ehe. Luckily, the connection is fine today :)

Breathless
Yes, I am breathless. Due to flu. WAIT! Don't jump into conclusion, it's only a mere flu and not Influenza A H1N1. I'd say it's a package; when you catch flu, cough and sore throat will come into picture. And that makes my condition even worse. Last Friday I had a client interview with my Professional Practice lecturer at 2.45pm (I do not have any class on Fridays but I had to go to Aikol because of the interview. Tertekan!). The interview was supposedly conducted for 15 minutes but I did for half an hour.ehe. This was my third client interview (with Madam) and I tried my very best eventhough I think there are few questions I missed out during the interview but it's okay. There will always be a second chance (a follow-up interview). Due to flu, I couldn't help but to hold the tissue throughout the interview. It was a very uncomfortable moment (plus, it's a client interview! My marks depend on my performance, so you can understand my situation). At the end of the interview, Madam said it was a good interview and she gave me a piece of advice;

"Nad (yes,she remembers my nickname better than my full name.ehe), avoid using OKAY too often. I know I used it a lot in my lectures but try to not use it too often. You can just nod to the answers given". Later she laughed.

Well, the real situation is like this; instead of nodding or smiling at the client after answering my questions, I replied with an OKAY few times and I even slipped my tongue and said AWESOME once.duhhhhhhhhhhhh..ehe. I can't recall giving the OKAY and AWESOME answers in any previous interview (I must be losing my mind at that time). But the point is I ended up doing a NO-NO reply to my client and eventhough it was done unintentionally but it may become a habit if she didn't point it out. Thank you Madam! I learnt my lesson.ehe


grrrrr....I can be naughtier.haha :D

Whenever I think of the word TRUGEN, I'd imagine the best pictures of Lee Min Ho. He did Etude, Pepsi, Anycall, Levis, Dunkin Donut, Cadillac etc but of all products, Trugen portrays him the best (No wonder he won the Best Male CF Model for Trugen last month). Few photos are already out in the open. And in order to avoid extra melting thingy on my part (hahaha), I limit myself to post only three of them :P



And this one is a pic taken for a magazine:


I think he lost weight after the surgery

As I mentioned in my previous post, Kim Bum is on a new project called DREAM with Son Dam Bi and the actor who starred in 200 Pounds Beauty (I don't know his name.ehe). If I'm not mistaken, Kim Bum will portray a new side of him; rebellious. I have a faith in his acting skill but I doubt Dam Bi's acting ability. Not all singers can act (unless you are Rain.ehe). But honestly, I'm looking forward to watch DREAM. Here is one official picture of DREAM just in case you are interested to watch it later (I'm not sure when it will begin; I'll update about it later)


once again, Dam Bi is lucky after Haptic Mission

As we are now in the second half of 2009, few new series will be out soon and it includes the My Fair Lady (formerly known as Lady Castle). Who's the lady?? It's one and only Yoon Eun Hye (she's cute and the most important thing is she can act!). Now, who are the actors? This is fun.ehe. Jung II Woo (Mino's BFF or if you are still wondering who he is, he starred in Iljimae Return and if you are still wondering, you can google his name.ehehe.simple). Another actor is Yoon Sang Hyun (star in Queen of Housewives.He looks old to me but I heard he's gained his fame after Queen of Housewives and for his look-alike Goo Joon Pyo's pama (i hate plagiarism) but I guess he's not popular enough for me to know him.ehe). The drama will premiere over KBS2TV on 19th August (Sheh's birthday?ehe)


a friend of mine said,"Mino has a way better look than his BFF!!"
Yeah of course, but his BFF is good looking too
(minus he looks lil' feminine to me; like Lee Jun Ki)

Friendship Moments!!
24hours are good enough when they are around :)

Knowledge is Virtue



I couldn't think any other title than this one. It may sound a bit tacky but it's nothing but the truth, knowledge is virtue.ehe. (Frankly speaking, my Jurisprudence lecturer kept repeating this phrase for few times in my class today, so it's kinda stuck in my head.ehe)


My new semester (and perhaps my last semester, InsyaAllah-God Willing) has begun since last Monday. I must say it was a tiring weekdays and thank God I don't have any class tomorrow.


my darlingssssssss

Living with Kinah & Ilham for a long time is a great comfort. After being physically and psychologically abused by classes and tutorials, at least I have them plus my de-facto roomates (Nab & Herda) because they know well how to have fun.ehe. Thinking that we are going to our separate ways in few months is actually unthinkable. Speaking of roomates, I have a new roomate (maybe 3 years younger than me; which makes me feel older.ehe). It's too early to know her true colour (well..I'm not judging) but I hope she can be a good roomate and we'll be able to get along well.


x miss him x

Just few hours ago Sheh asked me:
"Why didn't you mention about me in your blog?"
Later, I replied,
"Because you never mention my name in your blog"
I know I'm neither a really good gf (with moody character and a mountain of ego I have in me) nor an expressive gf. He should know it was only a joke. The real reason why I didn't mention about him much is because I prefer treating someone I love differently and it includes to not mention about him in the open often. I prefer keeping my loved one in the dark.ehehe. Trust me, love is always in the air. Eventhough at times we quarrelled like there's no tomorrow, but deep down in my heart, I appreciate his existence in my life very much. Having someone who can understand me better than anyone else makes him irreplaceable. So Mr Boyfriend, don't worry.
You're still the ONE :)

One Litre of Tears

New semester will begin in less than one week. As a matter of fact, this three-month break, so to speak, is the BEST MEDICINE for me. But truth be told, even after nearly three months, I'm still not ready for school!! And there's nothing to hide, I am an insatiable creature. Hardly to be pleased and satisfied.ehe. Well, it's okay. I'm going to enjoy that little bit of freedom that I'm having.



After this, I will begin the semester with determination, willingness to study smarter, and above all, I have to put my heart into it.ehe. Speaking of holidays, I made a checklist prior to it. It's like a new year resolution (eventhough I never had one.ehe). Among others are I must EAT right, DRINK lots of water, get ADEQUATE REST and EXERCISE because these are crucial in our lives. The questions are; Did I eat right?, Did I drink 8 glasses or 2 litres everyday?, Did I get adequate rest ie sleep? and Did I exercise?ehehe.

Hmm...I think I ate right; I ate mostly my mom's cooking and the good thing is I can count using my ten fingers how many times I had my fast food moments (it's difficult to find food in my uni that suit my appetite, so I'd normally end up eating unhealthy food or healthy food but cooked fast.haha). And because we are having fruits season in Malaysia, I had durians, rambutans, mangosteens etc almost everyday (full of vitamin C!!!I hope I'm not excessively eating them because we shouldn't take vitamin more than we are supposed to take. But I watched in a documentary programme that today's fruits contain less Vitamin C that they used to so we need to double up the intake.Justified!Enough said.ehe. I drank lots of water but I don't think I did up to 2 litres per day. Adequate rest??? Haha. Of course I did esp. sleep. People says there are two things in this world that can make us lazy. First is when we are overeating and secondly is when we are oversleeping.


the SLEEPYHEAD me!
(sleeping in the class)

Let me be frank, I'm a rather a sleepyhead than a food lover, so I fall into the second category.ehe. I watched ss501 in 7 episodes of Thanks For Wake Us Up (an old korean TV show; it aired in 2005/2006); and I found that Kim Hyun Joong and I have something in common ie WE ARE SLEEPYHEAD but I'm positive to say that I'm better than him because I can wake up (pretty much.ehe) easily.


ss501

EXERCISE?? It is always my problem. I was a sportmania when I was in primary and secondary schools. I represented schools for volleyball, netball, handball and softball (I played hockey sometimes). And in the pastime, I mountain-climbed with few friends just for fun (the highest mountain I ever climbed until its peak is the legendary Gunung Ledang in Johore.It's not that high but it's kinda dangerous to climb it and I did twice; firstly when I was 15 and secondly 16). The only game that I never interested in is BADMINTON!!. I still remember the hardest time I had in Mrsm; when I had to burn the midnight oil just to memorize everything related to badminton; its rules etc for my final exam. It was crazy!! Of all subjects, it's the first and last time I stayed up for the whole night without getting any sleep; just to understand what BADMINTON is. And thank God I passed.ehehehe. But, as I grow older, I became lazy (but I complain a lot about my figure.ehe) and now, I prefer doing some light cardio exercises eg. jogging and skipping. And that's what I was doing since the early of the holidays (eventhough there are times I couldn't get rid of my laziness). The good news is recently, I started dancing poco-poco (it's one kind of dance, I'm not sure about its originality but I think it's from Indonesia; maybe.ehe). Initially, my sister and I used a remix Indonesian song but later, we changed to the fast number songs eg. Super Junior's Sorry Sorry and Wonder Girls' Nobody .ehehe. I had fun doing it and at the same time, I exercised. That's what matters.ehe. So, the checklist is a success. Yeayy!!


I super heart holidays because I have more time to watch series!!ehe. Honestly, I prefer watching series than movies because I think each character develops effectively in series and the actors have opportunities to improvise their acting. That's what I thought.ehe. This holiday is filled with Japanese series (thanks to my supplier-my younger sister.I didn't spend any single penny to enjoy them.ehe). I watched Kurosagi, Code Blue, Dragonzakura, Proposal Daisakuen, Hotaru and the latest is 1 Litre of Tears.


It'll take some time to make a review for each series (ehe), but 1 Litre of Tears really brought me tears. This is an outdated series (if I'm not mistaken it's produced in 2005) but the fact that it's based on a true story, it's a really good series to share with. The main character in this series named Ikeuchi Aya (the real name of the deceased is Kitou Aya). She was only 15 years old when she's diagnosed to suffer from an incurable disease called Spinocerebellar Degeneration Disease (SCD). Prior to knowing the disease, she was just like other girls; happy and active. SCD is described to be a cruel disease; she slowly lost her enjoyment of life; she couldn't walk, she couldn't speak properly etc. During her period of suffering, she wrote a diary (1 Litre of Tears) to express her pain and suffering that only she could feel. It's touching when she wrote,
"This disease, why did it choose me?". She then answered, "Fate. It cannot be put into words".

One episode to another (11 episodes altogether) and we can see there's one thing that kept her moving on and it was her spirit to live. She was lucky to be brought up in a normal and happy family; with parents, 2 younger sisters and one younger brother and I've seen them to be like First Aid Kit in her life. She moved on eventhough she's in pain when her boyfriend dumped her upon finding out her disease; she even had to transfer into a disability school which initially, she refused to go but she had a second thought after considering her friends' difficulties in helping her out in school. Watching 1 Litre of Tears is like watching the late Kitou Aya fighting her disease; every single day until she died. She fought it because she wanted to live. We can feel the pain when she wrote,
"My life is like a flower that hasn't bloomed yet";
and it makes me think that life is something we need to treasure and it's a waste if I don't. Her diary has been published in Japan and it is said to be a motivation to everyone until today. Eventhough she had hard time to write, she kept on trying because she believed that,
"This diary is evidence that I'm alive right now"

She died two years after I was born; May 23, 1988 (at that time she was 25). It's a sad true story and it made me realize that I want to live comfortably in this world and no matter what happen, I must be happy, not for others but for ME. And of course, I cried a lot while watching it. And a song titled 'Only Human' perfectly match with the series.

"To be able to smile, I have at least cried one litre of tears"- Kitou Aya

Thinking of Aya who had wonderful people around her, I'm thinking of mine. Like most people in school, I went around in a clique. It's four of us and we studied in the same school until we were 15. We met everyday, we spent our recess everyday, we even called each other everyday and many things we did together everyday. Unfortunately, things didn't turn up so well for us. Now it seems that only three of us are still keeping in touch with each other. I think this is what we call as growing up. There always a price to pay for a long lasting happiness. And people change; at least this is what I believe in. Although we are not seeing each other (3 of us) often like we used to, I'm glad we still are. As for me, BEST FRIENDS are not something that I can get rid of easily. If it's difficult for a friend, what more it takes for a best friend. Whenever they're upset or happy, I'd feel the same. Their friends are my friends and their enemies are my enemies. And of course, living as a teenager with three best friends who have different strong personalities, strength and weaknesses was a really memorable moment for me. We cried, we laughed and most of the time we laughed to the extent I felt we could die just by laughing. Trust me, it took us a long journey to have this kind of friendship. When one of my best friends called me about two months ago and said, "I'm getting married this July!!", I've been in an emotional rollercoaster ever since. It's for sure that I'm happy for her. Not just HAPPY but EXTREMELY HAPPY.ehehe. And until today, there is no word to describe how happy I am. We've gone through a lot together, and I'm happy when she's happy. I'm still looking for her wedding gift and I hope I'll find the perfect one, to suit her as MY PERFECT BEST FRIEND.

"A best friend is a VIP next to my family"


I love you Best Friend! And I will always DO.
