This is My ultimate TIME!!

[nowplaying:HOT STUFF/Davichi]

Having 4 days break (i don't hv any class on Fridays;Saturday & Sunday plus one day public holiday-Malaysia's 52nd Independence Day on Monday) is a blessing. I struggled since 2@3 weeks ago with one after one assignment and of course three consecutive tests which obviously blew my head off. I reminded myself to be patient and alhamdlillah, i think i did a very good job (angkat bakul sendiri.hehe).

Except for Friday (bcos i had to print out my Sale & Purchase Agreement n submitted it before 1 noon), i have few things to do during these three days. Thanks to Ilham for giving me an after-heavy workloads reward; I have with me few English series including Gossip Girl (ep 15 until finale) & Brothers & Sisters season 3. I've been following these series since their premiere but at one point, i stopped. And due to my endless disappointment with internet connection as i hardly get to watch Brilliant Legacy & My Fair Lady (maybe i should get myself a broadband; but I prefer to be disappointed than having to pay bills for surfing internet when i'm able to do so for FREE.hehe), i asked Ilham to find the remaining episodes of GG & BAS that i've left for a long time.


Gossip Girl vs Brothers & Sisters



Just to share one unimportant thing with you, I had four slices of Domino's pizza for iftar (breaking fast), and right now I felt lil guilty to my own body; for not being just to it. "i'm sorry BODY". (i'm neither thin, nor tall; so maintaining my standard weight is important for me)



well, I looked at the current votes for the Seoul International Drama Awards (it involves various countries including Taiwan, Korea & Japan) just now, surprisingly the highest vote goes to 4D Prince, Kim Hyun Joong for overseas, korea & japan categories (this is what we call as fans' POWER). I'd like to note here that I'm not anti-KHJ; i rooted for him long time b4 i notice Mino but i'm of the opinion that it's not practical to choose the best actor@actress@drama based on votes. As much as i'm against the voting system in any reality show except in elections/by-elections, i strongly disagree with this idea when it comes to this kind of international drama awards. ss501 (pronounce as double S 501) has countless fans from all over the world and i can understand why KHJ could receive such recognition from ss501's fans (but hmm...how can i put my opinion into words.err...it's quite frustrating to see my Mino down in #3 in all categories after taking into account his outstanding acting skill as Joon Pyo in BOF compared to Ji Hoo and as i mentioned earlier, i don't believe in voting system; so in the event Mino will lose the Best Actor award to KHJ, i would take it as his LUCK). Don't get offended by my sincere opinion; because i'm just saying :)
p/s: the Award will be held on September 11

Yesterday, my new roomate, Fatiha browsed through my song collection in my Lappy with a hope she could find any new songs; that's when i realised that i haven't updated my songs for a long long long time.hehe. what i'm having in my possession is only few korean drama ost albums (which of course she's not interested!!). Ilham's external hardisk came as a rescue (thanks for the songs!! altho i'm not really sure they are new or not but i believe most of them sound alien to my ears.hehe). here's a thing; I abandoned my fav English series-GG & BAS (plus Prison Break.sorry Wentworth Miller, i'm moving to Lee Min Ho.hahaha) and at the same time i seem to have rejected any other songs than k-pop (no-lah.i didn't.i'm a universal music lover; i listen to all sort of songs; in few different languages).



speaking of music, ss501 will be in Malaysia soon (i don't know when) for their Asian Tour Persona Concert. i intend to attend the concert and enjoy to my fullest (after having a blast one attending Jason Mraz Live in Malaysia few months ago.hehe). i'm still searching for the ticket price (if any of you happen to know how much does it cost or where can i get the ticket, please inform me via comment/shoutbox)
p/s: there's one local singer i'd like to attend his concert (if there's any) and it's Faizal Tahir (i met him once in OU,but after meeting him, i talked to myself that i should ask him more about his plan esp. concert instead of smiling n taking pics with him (hmm..)

Salam Ramadhan :)

SALAM RAMADHAN MUBARAK
May Allah s.w.t shower upon us His Blessing & Guidance. Amin
Alhamdulillah, we are about to approach the holy month of Ramadhan. I'm going home tomorrow (after two consecutive tests: Evidence Law & Jurisprudence) to celebrate my first day of Ramadhan with my beloved family... I'm totally excited!hehe :D

I'd like to quote a hadith:
"One who loves for the sake of Allah alone and hates for the sake of Allah alone; and whatever he gives, gives for the sake of Allah alone, and whatever he withholds, withholds for the sake of Allah alone-indeed,
he perfects his Iman" (Abu Daud)

It's a matter of respect



"Justice is a habit whereby a man renders to each other his due with constant and perpetual will"

Throughout this week, I have thought about all sort of things. And most of them are very much related to what I'm studying right now - LAW.

Have you ever heard about an offence called Marital Rape??
In many countries including Malaysia, marital rape is a sexual offence (it's a new provision inserted into Malaysian Penal Code). Recently, there was a case involving marital rape; a husband was charged in April for committing two offences; (i) marital rape and (ii) committing carnal intercourse against the order of nature without consent (sodomy) and he was convicted last week for 10 years imprisonment and 3 strokes altogether. The case attracts my attention to share some information about it with you; not because I'm being sexist here (because I'm not), but because I believe that all men and women should know something about it.

As I mentioned earlier, Malaysia is one of the countries that criminalise marital rape. Marital Rape is defined in Section 375A of (Malaysian) Penal Code as 'any man who during the subsistence of a valid marriage causes hurt or fear of death or hurt to his wife or any other person in order to have sexual intercourse with his wife SHALL be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 5 years'. Bear in mind that in law, the word 'SHALL' means mandatory. Prior to the insertion of the provision into our Penal Code, many non-governmental organizations (NGOs) esp. women organizations (AWAM,SIS etc) proposed so that the offence be included into our Penal Code as opposed to the exception to Section 375 of the Code which provides that sexual intercourse by a man with his own wife by a valid marriage is not a rape. I'm not sure whether the exception to the said provision has been repealed or not (because I only have the older version of Penal Code plus I left my criminal law classes long..long..long time ago.ehe), but I assume it has been repealed and replaced by the new provision (s. 375A PC). Due to my interest in this issue, I brought it into a general discussion in Jurisprudence tutorial class on the topic of justice. When we talk about marital rape, we can relate it with the principle of JUSTICE. It is within our general knowledge that the purpose of us having laws is to uphold justice and at the same time to regulate the society in a better way. Thus, if we look at the offence of marital rape and relate it with justice, the explanation will be longer than we expected. In the recent case, the accused (husband) was reported to have slapped, strangled, threatened and dragged the victim (wife) to their room before having sex without her consent (this is rape). Like I said, I'm not being sexist; but justice is my concern here.

Our class discussion (if we can call it as a class discussion with only few students participate in it) continued with a question by my lecturer, "Would it be an offence of assault or force if we are talking about the husband who causes hurt to his own wife?" as he seems to disagree with the insertion of s375A into the Code. I persistently answered his question by telling him that it's not a mere assault and force and it's not even a mere rape. It's called marital rape because you can see clearly both elements of force/assault and rape exist in the provision and of course, I'd say the punishment should be more severe. I can understand if somebody can't differentiate between marital rape and rape plus it's a new offence in Malaysia (Malaysia is quite left behind I must say) but you can't simply say that they are the same because they are not.This is why browsing through the Penal Code itself is important. I know some male students had looked at the issue as a rejection or skepticism to the traditional idea that a wife should submit herself to her husband. Whatever they think of me, I DON'T CARE! (it's one of the reasons why I never be interested in dating law students.hehe.NO OFFENCE.this is my blog, I can say whatever I like). Enough. I do believe that marriage is a sacred institution whereby wife should be loved and treated with love and respect, and vice versa. And yes, I know that it's a part of a wife's duty and obligation to fulfill the husband's need but the husbands should also know that it's part of their duty to show respect to their wives.



Islam is beautiful; and it provides the best way of life. There is a hadith reported by Abu Hurairah in which the Prophet said, "The most perfect of believers in faith is he who is the best in conduct and the best of you are those who are the best to their wives". Thus, Muslims particularly are estopped to deny the fact that wives should be treated respectfully. I'm sure all religions and beliefs promote the same thing, therefore one must agree that husband and wife should be given proper treatment by their spouses. It goes without saying that slapping, strangling, causing hurt, threatening etc your another half is unforgiven acts to women (including me.I can't imagine myself to be beaten etc); what more if those are done in the course of having sexual activities (it may be a sensitive word for some people but please be open-minded;for the sake of education). Be it love-marriage or arranged marriage, husband and wife are expected to be just to each other. According to my lecturer, he said that in most countries which criminalise marital rape, the wives who purposely refuse to have conjugal activities with their husbands are bringing up the issue of marital rape. I don't know to what extent this is true but in Malaysia, it's a settled law that the wife can only bring this issue before the Court if all the elements have been fulfilled (please refer to s.375A) and wives cannot simply bring it in the event where they refuse to carry out their duties. Looking at the whole picture, I hope you will be able to appreciate the importance of law in our life. And please, KNOW YOUR OWN RIGHTS. And bear in mind that, Man & Woman need each other.


newly-wedded couple: my BFF, Delima Radzwa & her husband
May Allah shower upon them blessing and cute babies!!hehe


A picture has thousands of stories



Kim Bum fainted on the set of Dream but don't worry, he's fine. I read somewhere that so far, Dream failed to achieve high ratings but Bummy's effort (with all sweaty and long hours training for the drama) should be appreciated. I wonder how my Lee Min Ho can still be standing healthy without any fainting whatsoever, although he's the busiest among the F4 (Kim Joon, Kim Hyun Joong & now Bummy were at least fainted once due to their hectic schedules). Maybe thanks to the ginseng and all sorts of herbs he swallowed everyday as he mentioned in few interviews.hehe



Korean Brangelina (Song Hye Kyo & Hyun Bin) are reported to announce their explosive relationship next month (September). Can't Wait!



The fact that I think only Youngseng, Kyujong & Baby Joon can sing (sorry Hyun Joong & Jung Min, I discredit both of you.ehe), they are absolutely beauties! Love this pic!

I personally wonder why Yoon Sang Hyun could gain so much attention and honestly, that curiosity generates my interest to watch this drama. So, remember! My Fair Lady will premiere on August 19.
p/s: I can't wait to watch the drama esp after watching the teasers and press conference!!!



The more I look at him, the more I agree with Mino when he was asked in an interview about his first impression on his BFF, Jung II Woo. Mino answered, "He looks like a girl". How can you be so frank Mino?? But,one thing we can't deny; they are BFFs and they could still find time having lunch together (arghhhh..I wish I have recent pics of them together!!)



I can't leave my Mino behind.ehe. These are his behind-the-scene pics when filming for Cass CF with Jessica Gomez
he's a totally hottie in eyeliner!!!a way hotter than TOP of Big Bang




Last but not least, Mino in Trugen Award (recently)
one word: HOT!


p/s:I hate when I have to bear with the slow internet connection. I could feel my patience was tested at the highest level.ehe. Good Night people & Have a Wonderful Weekend (well, I need to attend a workshop with Selangor BAR tomorrow morning.arghhhhhhhhhhh).

W.eek.end



what a boring Sunday. In sequence->I woke up, had a cup of caffeine (ehe), ironed 2 pairs of baju kurung, arranged my books & notes, swept the room, skipping for 200 times while listening to my mixed-tape playlist (it's very universal; Bahasa, English, Japanese & Korean.ehe); took a nice & longggg shower & headed to cafe for lunch (ALONE!). waaaaaaaaaa....shdeynye tggl sorg2 dlm bilek.ehe (bg Kinah rase bersalah sikit.ehe).



I planned to watch Brilliant Legacy on this weekend but I didn't. Thinking that the download will take forever makes me think 100 times whether or not to continue the plan. Maybe next time. I heard the drama achieved the highest rating so far (exceeded BOF). I don't really care about the rating (usually) esp. when I was watching Worlds Within in the late 2008 & early 2009 because it is a good drama and full of emotion (although I dislike the production thingy whatsoever). WW is a real drama and I really like real dramas. With regard to Brilliant Legacy, I have an instinct that it is a good drama and like Lee Min Ho who started gaining his endless fame since BOF, the main actress in Brilliant Legacy named Han Hyo Joo is getting more attention due to her outstanding acting. It seems that Korea is now full of 20s actors & actresses but never abandon its older (veteran) stars eg Song Seung Hun, Won Bin etc (they remind me of Autumn In My Heart moments.ehe).
Brilliant Legacy, wait for me!haha :D

F4 Photo Book is out! I don't know much about the Photobook but I read somewhere, the photobook is quite expensive. But, if you don't mind spending to have F4's pics in your possession, I'm sure it's worth it.

.

On August 3, Lee Min Ho joined Haptic Amoled event at Carribean Bay (I don't know where it is). From what I read and watched on youtube, few fans were given a chance to get a hug from Mino (erkkkkk....benci!) and at the end of the event, Mino was asked by the MC to show heart signal to his fans. Mino who was shy, showed the heart signal three times (from three different angles) and then he ran away to the backstage embarassingly (hehehe.what a cute boy!)

recent pic of him. one word: cool!

We love to love them and sometimes we love to hate them

Everyday, as much as I need my teh ais (iced tea), I need my celeb-gossip fix too. It's a routine for me to log on to Facebook and Twitter and few bloggers' website which gives me a sneak peek into Hallyuwood. Malaysians, don't get me wrong. As much as I love to be a Malaysian, I never forget to update my local entertainment eg. who is getting married, who is getting divorced, who is releasing new albums etc (they are all within my knowledge). But, I don't want to be a hypocrite; I need to show who I really am. I chose Lee Min Ho instead of Remy (the actor stars in Nur Kasih which is my current 'must watch' local drama.ehe). I chose Song Hye Kyo instead of Maya Karin (duhhhhhhhhh...ehe). I chose Korean dramas and I don't mind spending money and time on them instead of watching Manjalara or Zeti & Si Mawas (which I detest them so much). I can't push myself by pretending that I love our local dramas/movies when I don't; just to show the people that I am a Malaysian (when all leaders are busy promoting 1Malaysia policy).

I need to be true to myself

Just now, I read an article;
"Celebrities: We love to love them and sometimes we love to hate them"
I have to agree with it (although some people may beg to differ). Evidence? My blog tells it.ehe. I stalk Mino like nobody's business; do you think I would stalk him if I abhor him? No, I won't.


Song Hye Kyo & Hyun Bin are an item!
hoooray!!!!!!!!!!
(please refer the prev post)






pics: (i) & (ii) taken during the press conference of Worlds Within & (iii) promotional pic for WW

later, due to breaking news, more lovey-dovey pics of BinKyo are dug up by media
(but the following pics are not the new one;they are in my safe-keeping since last year.ehe)









When I read the breaking news on Wednesday morning (August 5), I was like, "What?Is this for real???". But, honestly since then, I can't help but hoping that it is TRUE. Lucky enough, their management agencies have confirmed the rumor but both stars are still keeping their mouth shut. For me, Song Hye Kyo is the female version of Lee Min Ho (I mean I like her as much as I like Mino (hmm..maybe lesser.ehe), and it's a coincidence that SHK is Mino's ideal girl.ehe). After Fullhouse, Worlds Within is the first drama she involved in and I really anticipated the drama to premiere (i remember watching it online in the midst of my 3rd year 2nd sem final exam.crazy!ehe). It turns out to be that the drama failed (in terms of ratings) but I definitely could bear with the storyline plus the main characters are Song Hye Kyo & Hyun Bin (still remember his arrogant character in My Lovely Samsoon and his dimples!!ehe). Although I'm one of the BiKyo fans (Bi aka Rain) & Song Hye Kyo, but after watching WW, I can't deny SHK & HB have a great chemistry on the screen (in WW) despite the fact that the drama was a doom. So, when the news on them came out like mushrooms (you can refer to these bloggers' website: K-popped.com, Popseoul.com & Allkpop.com), it's the most amazing news about her I ever received so far.
GO BinKyo!!!hehe :P



He's a hottie & She's a natural beauty
As said by many, perhaps they are the most perfect (Korean celebrities) couple so far.
For me, it’s like the show (Worlds Within) is coming to life; they go so well together :)
