It's official. Year 2011 is about to become (for me) the year for attending friends' weddings.

should i be freaking out about my singleton status already? nah.. still too early for me XD

But really, last year there were lots of friends getting engaged, so this year the wedding invitations starts coming in. I've got a wedding to attend this weekend too. A dear friend from secondary school is getting married. I practically spent the whole Sunday at her house helping out with the wedding preparations. And got a shock at realizing how utterly clueless I am at trying to decorate all the hantaran and other stuff. Guess I'm just not creative enough for these sort of things.

I would really love to get her a lovely wedding gift, but so far I haven't been able to look around the shops much lately, and I have absolutely no idea what kind of gift I should get. Any thoughts? I'm not that stingy when giving presents, but I'd really like to get something the newlyweds could use.

And as it so happens, the wedding also coincided with the Bersih 2.0 rally -- demanding a free and fair election process, and they just have to choose the July 9 date for it :(

My friends and I are concerned that the rally might cause some roads to be closed, or roadblocks mounted at certain parts of the city by the police, or roads reduced to one lanes leading to the rally, or.... lots of other not very entertaining thoughts come to mind, really.  Some of my friends promised to be there early in the morning to help out. And I'll be there during the reception itself because I couldn't make it in the morning. But it's a huge concern for us in case we are left with limited choices of routes to get to the wedding. And I live quite far from the wedding venue.

Really, can't even get married and enjoy the merrymaking in peace >.<

Merry Christmas to those celebrating it! :D

Almost 2 days late though XD (well, if you follow my timezone, anyway)

Had a wonderful day watching Narnia Voyage of the Dawn Treader today with my sister and cousins. It's been such a long time since we went out like this. I'm just so happy we could hang out together again. The movie was really awesome! I've read all of the Narnia novels, but it was so long ago, I don't exactly remember much of the plot anymore. But the visuals was stunning, and there wasn't a dull moment, and wasn't very lengthy either - which is perfect! Caspian is really good looking, and though I'm sad we only get two out of four Pevensie siblings in this movie, Eustace pretty much made up for the lack XD

Although by reading some blogs, I recently come across a pretty disturbing revelation (should I even call it that?) about the whole setup in Narnia. It will need me doing some more info digging on it though. It's the part where Aslan says "I am known by a different name in your world" line... okay, I can't remember how it was phrased exactly, but that's the scene I'm talking about. Like I mentioned, it will need some digging, because even I thought it was strange the first time I read it, but I let it pass.

Saving it for another entry? Maybe...

======================================

Oh by the way, Dreamwidth is giving me another invite code for some odd reason. So if anyone of you in my F-list wants the code (or have a friend who wants the code), please let me know, because I have no use for it.

I have never actually used my Lenovo Y410's webcam before.

And now that I need to use it, it won't work >.<

Just my luck. I hate computer problems.

Oh dear... I just finished a watercolor painting to be submitted during my Fine Arts class tomorrow. Have I mentioned how much I suck at drawing? Apparently I suck at this too. It turned out kinda fine before I started adding spectacles to the portrait, and then it was totally ruined, cause I'm not good with the detailed parts. Oh well...


Last Saturday I hung out with a few friends at Mutiara Damansara where we had dinner together. It's been a while since we could all meet together, since some of them had already started working. Ended up at the nearby Cineleisure to watch The Ugly Truth, which is hilarious, but not what I had imagined before I watched it.

The Ugly Truth spoilers... and my opinions  )



By the way, CLAMP fans, have you heard? Apparently there is big news about xxxHoLic.


Seriously, SPOILERS if you are not up to date with xxxHoLic )


Ooohhh!! I almost forgot to put this in. I only just found out that Chapter 1 of The Gathering Storm (the upcoming Book 12 of the Wheel of Time series) was posted at TOR's website HERE. Unfortunately, you have to register in order to read it, but it's free. I've registered, but I don't have the luxury of time to read it right now. I've read a bit of the early parts though, looks kinda good. Looking forward to the release this end of October   /hyper XD



Eh.. this entry went longer than I expected. But I guess it's good, since I want to focus on uni work right now. I've been procrastinating too much lately. We have a one week break next week, and immediately after that will be my mid-semester tests. So I'd better focus and start studying ._.
