Daisy

As Daisy slightly opened the front door of her three rooms apartment from the outside, a sick stench raced into her nostrils from the inside forcing her to back away a few steps... The opening of the door was so slight that it seemed that the only thing that could come out through was a sliver of light...  and through that opening, the stench came out rapidly like gigantic waves, drowning and suffocating Daisy... "What the hell is that awful smell?", Daisy moaned as she covered the lower half of her heart-shaped face using her fluffy brown scarf...

"DAISY!!"

Daisy opened her eyes... It was bright... Then, she heard the blinds being opened... "Are you awake??", asked Rose as she moved from the bedroom windows to Daisy's bed... "Sweety, wake up..." Rose's lips reached Daisy's forehead and stayed for a few seconds before she lifted them up just to moved them to Daisy's lips... "How do I taste?", Rose asked... Her hands were placed on both sides of Daisy's pillow as she gently lay her body onto hers, preventing her from getting up...  Daisy wanted to say ; Your breath smells like garbage, get the fuck off me... but instead, with a sweet smile, she uttered, "Sweet..." ...Rose got off her with a smile on her face... Still lying down on her bed, Daisy watched how Rose skipped to the door... until her vision became blurry... and blurrier...

"Daisy? Is that you?"


Daisy opened her eyes... It was dark... She was standing outside of her apartment with her scarf still covering half of her face... "Huh? What the fuck??", Daisy thought... The stench was back to haunt her... The door was slightly opened, letting out a sliver of white light... "Rose...?" With a small force, she pushed the door to widened the opening of the entrance, revealing a pool of blood on the floor of the living hall... "Owh my God... ROSE!!!"


"Hey, u went back to sleep?"


"Rose?"... Daisy was confused... "Yes, darling... Did u dream about me?" Rose answered... - So, it was a dream... The stench, the blood... it was all a fuckin' dream - Daisy thought... Rose was sitting on the side of the bed... "I had a nightmare...", Daisy uttered...


"What kind of dream?"


"Rose?"... Daisy was confused... and scared... "What the fuck is going on??" She found herself back standing in her bloodied living room... "ROSE??!! Where are you??", Daisy screamed... Blood was everywhere... on the floor, on the walls, on her plasma television, on her sofas... everywhere... Who's blood is it? - She asked herself... Is it Rose's?


"Darling? You called me?"


Daisy opened her eyes... She looked at her surrounding... No blood... Just soapy water...  Where's Rose? Where am I? "Darling? Baby? Are u okey? U've been acting weird since u woke up..."  Rose wrapped her arms around Daisy's upper body from behind... "Weird? How weird?," Daisy asked while still figuring out her  current whereabouts... "Soapy water... Rubber duck... Shower head... Tub... We're having a shower... together... in the tub" - Daisy concluded in her head... "Well, since u got out of bed, u've been spacing out a lot..."

"Are u okey?"

"No... No... NOOO!! What is happening to me??!" Daisy screamed as she found herself not being wet and naked in the tub anymore... In split seconds, she was brought back and forth between her bedroom and her bloodied living room... over and over again... "Who's blood is this??!"

"Mine..."

"DAISY!! DAISY!!" She heard Rose calling... and opened her eyes... "Rose... what's... happening to me...? Why is it so bright...?" Daisy felt weak... unable to utter more words... Her head was spinning round and round... "Daisy, u fainted... Hang on! I'm calling the ambulance... My God... Your nose is bleeding... Daisy? Daisy??"

"Mine... The blood is mine..."

"Who the fuck are u?" Daisy found herself staring at herself... "I am you...", she said... "What??"

"Over dosed??"

Daisy woke up to the voice of Rose... "Was she taking drugs?", Rose asked the doctor... "I'm afraid so... She's now under extreme hallucination and confusion..."

"Fuck..."

If earth stopped spinning...

What if the earth SUDDENLY stopped spinning?

Well, the earth is currently rotating at the speed of 1100 miles per hour... The atmosphere (air) is moving at the same speed too... if the earth suddenly stopped spinning, the atmosphere would still be in motion... the atmosphere would be moving so fast, it would sweep earth's surface clean... Anything that was not anchored to the bedrock (humans, vehicles, sand, water, animals and etc) would be swept into the atmosphere... it would be like being swept by a monstrous hurricane... cities would become deserts...
 

Of course, the probability for that to happen is zero... Earth wont stop spinning suddenly... It will stop spinning gradually!! ahahah...

Do you know that the moon is drifting away from earth? Because of this, the earth is slowing down every year... Which means, the day is getting longer... In a couple of hundred million years, the earth will eventually stop...
So, what would happen then? 

Hmm... one half of the Earth would be in daylight for half the year while the other side would be in darkness... The second half of the year it would be reversed...



Because of that, the temperature would be extreme... One side of the earth would be extremely cold... the other would be extremely hot... You would have to migrate often to search for place with good temperature rate...

Besides that, earth would loose it's magnetic field... There would be no more 'northern lights'... and what's worse is there would be no protection against cosmic rays... you could get sunburned just by being in the sun for 1 minute... Not to mention, nuclear radiation from the sun, cancer, and etc... We all would become black... unless we lived at the colder side of course... 


Be thankful for the earth is still spinning...

Owh, they're sisters?

A few minutes ago, I suddenly recalled a few scenes from an episode of the TV series, 
Bones...
and I thought, "hey, that woman from Bones look similar to Zooey..."
and
"hmm... she talks like Zooey too..."
so,
I Googled... and found out that they are freakin' 
sisters...


Emily Deschanel~ 


Zooey Deschanel~


Who's older? Try to guess...







Hmm... I should be doing my action research instead of writing this...

Pew Pew Pew

"Every time I go to the cinema and pay my money and sit down and watch a film go up on-screen, I want to feel that the people who made that film think it’s the best movie in the world, that they poured everything into it and they really love it. Whether or not I agree with what they’ve done, I want that effort there — I want that sincerity. And when you don’t feel it, that’s the only time I feel like I’m wasting my time at the movies."

- Christopher Nolan


Sometimes when I watch a very crappy movie, I ask myself, "did these people watch their own movie before releasing it?"... because if they did, they should have known how crappy the movie is and wont ever ever release it... unless they are plain stupid... or greedy...

Malaysian movie makers, prove the world that u can do better... 

How come there are no Malaysian action movies? Why cant we do something like Thailand's Ong Bak? Because we dont have capable stuntmen? or is it because of budget? For me, Ong Bak didnt seem too expensive to make... 

Maybe it's because our so called movie stars are all jambu and metrosexual... 

Or is it because of politics instead? Or is it because of censorship issues? Hey, Remp-it and Bohsia are explicit movies, okey... and they did fine...

Aiyah... We dont have to compete with Hollywood or Bollywood... We just need to produce good movies... By good, I mean something that intrigues the mind, arouse the body... Something that I want to see twice... 

Here's the movie that I want to see twice... The Expendables!

 

When u have a line of stars like Statham, Jet Li and Stallone, u can only expect one thing... ACTION PACKED! Yeah, muscular bodies, husky voices (except for Jet Li), cool rides, and powerful guns... We are talking heavy artillery here!



Since the movie Crank, Jason Statham has been my most favorite action movie actor... and after this (above) particular scene, I love him even more... He's the coolest!


Hell, even my girlfriend loves the movie...


:-D

Are they called brownies because they are brown?

A few semesters ago, I had my first brownie with buttercup... She dragged me to Secret Recipe in Tesco and introduced me to the looks and taste of brownies... And I loved those square slices of fattening chocolate flavored brownies...

However, I almost forgot how good they taste until the last day of TESL Movie Night at KBM... Nasuha was kind enough to make the whole TESL crew some brownies...  She even brought ice cream!! they were delicious and I never had enough... I didnt get why people must restrain themselves from eating many slices of them... But, it's okey... They didnt want them, then I had some to share with buttercup...




A few days later, buttercup and I shared a slice of brownie in Calanthe Cafe in Jonker Walk... The best one ever!! The brownie has walnut in it, ice cream on top and home-made chocolate sauce at the bottom... Sehingga mengjilat pinggan~




Maybe inspired by Nasuha's and Calanthe Cafe's, cupcake made me some brownies too... They also have walnut~ Well, that was her first time baking brownies, so the taste could not match the one in Calanthe Cafe... But it was meaningful because she baked them for me... It meant a lot...



Can I have more brownies please...

Best cake ever

Desperately looking for a new place to eat at Dataran Pahlawan, my honey daisy and I decided to try out Nadeje, the shop just beside De'Celup and Old Town Kopitiam... At first, I was doubtful because the price of food there was rather high... it almost matched the price of food at Secret Recipe...


However, after I've tasted a bite of its Berry Berry Cake, all of my doubts faded away... This cake was the best cake I've ever tasted before... Totally worth my money...  U cant see it by looking at the picture as it was taken from above, but the cake was actually layered... it had fifteen to twenty thin layers and between two layers, there was sweet heavenly berry jam... Every bite gave both of us extreme satisfaction... Owh My God... It's like I can still taste it in my mouth... 
Even though I'm not a baker and I've never baked before, but I can guess that it would take a long time to make it... High quality! That's why it's expensive...



Refreshments! This was my cupcake's... Cant remember the name but it was superb... Too sweet though... Cake plus this drink equals to sugar high... 3 layered drink! Hmm... This place is all about layers huh? Even my cold chocolate drink had layers! 



Chocolate sauce at the bottom! Milky chocolate drink at the top... Man, we were really sugar high...



I ordered the Curry Udon... The gravy was delicious as it was kinda like soup but it tasted like curry, hence the name... There's half an egg in it, pieces of chicken and also carrots and potatoes... However, the mee was not that great as it tasted plain... 


My buttercup's was indeed better than mine... Yagi Udon!! I cant describe it thoroughly here but when the plate was served, the Udon was "alive"... The steam from gravy made some of the thin ingredients (not sure what they were...) move like the tentacles of a squid... Kinda freaky yet so interesting... It tasted good too... Awesome!!

Most of the food was Japanese food... Remember to ask whether the food is halal or not before u order because most of them were mixed with alcohol... But the food and drinks above were halal~ :-D 

All in all, Nadeje is a good place to eat if u're thinking of trying something new... It has WIFI so u can bring ur laptop... There are plugs for u to plug in the charger... They also serve coffee and some western food... A perfect place to hang out and chat with ur better or worse halves for it is quiet since there are not so many people go there... 
Try it!

Movie Night at KBM



After all of the trouble of creating and distributing questionnaires, doing proposals, dealing with HEA/HEP people, downloading movies, choosing the right movies, putting up posters, translating subtitles, setting up speakers and laptops, re-choosing the right movies, selling tickets, giving out fliers, making popcorns and sausages, arranging the chairs and tables, re-arranging the chairs and tables, and many more stuff... we finally wrapped up our Movie Night at KBM!!!




Thanks to all BTSL 8A friends and other people like Noel (who helped to arrange the chairs and tables)  and the lecturers for willing to lend a hand promoting and supporting our thing~ It was fun right? Plus, we got to eat that delicious and addictive Nachos with cheese... Credits to Hafeez, Fadzly and Alvin... Can I have some more?? 

We also got to devour Nasuha's brownies with ice cream... It was delicious! I ate so many pieces of it... Can I have some more of that too??

Maybe we can do this again huh? Like Farril said, "Scream Fest!"... Since all of the thrillers, Dead Silence and Orphan, got sold out...



*A part of me doesnt want this semester to end...*
