Haley Reinhart from American Idol Season 10

14 Apr

This season of AI 2011, I am really rooting for Haley Reinhart.

So wat if my eyes are too close together?

 

Yeah!  So wat if her eyes are too close together?

I think her looks grow slowly but surely on me. 

And her voice is appealing.

Plus, who in the world can make yodeling & growling sound cool??? 

Go youtube & search for these few songs that she sang on AI

10 Jan

YAYYYYYYYYYYYY…  I ignored my blog!!!

*runs away*

Must be the holiday season.

It’s making me feel sooooooooo lazy.

The whole of the December month is like 1 big holiday mood for me, but ironically, it is the busiest period for me in the working world.

Then January is like the hangover from the December holiday mood.  Which is basically, also making me feel very lazy.  And again, ironically, I should be working hard because of all the start-of-the-new-year reports to be done at work.

To top it all off, the Chinese New Year is in the beginning of February so that makes me feel even more lazyyyyyyyy.

I think I am born lazy.  Maybe I was born with a brain that has a super high amount of activity in area where it controls the lazy/hardworking functions of the body.

I have been communicating with some of you via email & you guys really have interesting topics!  You have ignited the curiousity in me & I am currently already doing some research.

I have read up on pH levels for skin & body.  Different people seem to react differently with different levels of pH.  But I want to research more before I blog on it.

A few of you are also enquiring about other products from the BSY line, especially on the Noni Black Hair Magic.  I did some research & found that it is also made from natural ingredients.  Apparently, some of our local organic stores are already selling it at $8 per sachet or $98 for 20 sachets, but you guys want me to ask for lower price.  (-_-“)    I feel like you want me to be an auntie bargaining in a wet market, but ok I will work on that soon.  LOL!  Please give me some time though… because Berry Mii is a little… err… ermmm… a little… under… the weather?

OK I ADMIT I AM FEELING LAZY NOW. 

But I’ll try to get it done after the Chinese New Year.

On the BSY soap, I want to say that I have stopped using it for 4 days now & my cold sores gradually came back.  =\   Is there really no cure for that??????  Those bumpy clogged pores also returned.  I am so sad.  I cannot use other cleansers.  Still have 1 full bottle of 100% Pure cleanser sitting in my cupboard.  =\

Quick update on what has been going on in my life since my last blog post.

I watched a few movies.

The 1st one was…


 Gulliver’s Travel starring Jack Black.

 

My bf almost fell asleep.  I watched the big screen like a zombie.  It was THAT bad.  I wonder why comedy actors like to repeat their actions.  It’s like once you’ve seen one of their movies, you will feel like you’ve watched them all.

For example, Jim Carrey’s facial expressions are the same throughout when he starred in The Mask, The Cable Guy, Liar Liar, etc.

For Jack Black, it was the same crazy loser rocker vibe in School of Rock, Tenacious D, Nacho Libre, etc.  hahaha… ok actually he is a pretty funny guy.  Plus he can sing.

The 2nd movie was…


Little Fockers starring Ben Stiller & Robert De Niro.
p.s – a lot of my friends told me that when they look at Robert De Niro, he reminds them of my daddy.  I think so too.  The resemblance is uncanny!  especially the grumpiness.  LOL!

 

Another comedy that didn’t make me laugh.  But for some reason, the girl seated next to me thought it was so funny that she laughed extremely loudly at all the not-funny parts of the movie.

*curious side-glance at her with puzzled eyebrows*…

buay beng (translation: dun understand / dun get it) at all.

Most recently watched movie was…


The Tourist starting a A-lister combo of Johnny Depp & Angelina Jolie.

 

HOLY SMOKES!  Now THAT is what I call acting!  They made the movie very believable & I was totally immersed into it… … except for that stupid kid who kept making a din in the theatre, I was enjoying myself in this movie.

Speaking of young children in movie theatres, for god’s sake, can parents please DO NOT bring them into a dark quiet environments???????  You should know that kids cannot sit still & they are demanding little pricks.  Also, they cannot control their voices & tend to talk/yell/cry/sob loudly in the nice dark quiet environment.  Verrryyyyy irritating, okay?!?!?!?!  Unless you want your kid to get beaten up by an angry mob of cinema-goers.

If you want to watch a movie in the theatre & insist on bring your noisy kids along, then at least feed them with alcohol to knock them out first.  Geez.  Parents.

Johnny Depp is seriously charming & he grows on you.  He is one actor whom does not have the same expressions over & over again.  I love him.

As for Angelina Jolie, she lost a lot of weight, but she’s still looking so fabulous & supermodel’ish.  She has really tiny ankles that looked so delicate & girlish!!!

The movie ending was predictable though.  Halfway thru the movie, I told my bf the plot & ending then he was sian* (translation: bored) throughout the movie already.  hahahhaa… I am such a killjoy.

p.s – Do not feed alcohol to young children.  I was JUST KIDDING.  omg.

As I was surfing thru the internet, I found this photo on that Twilight couple.


Kristen & Robert

 

Kristen is looking hot as ever with her sleepy bedroom eyes that can pierce thru your soul.

But… Robert… somehow managed to look like an old chee ko pei* (dirty pervert) to me.  He also looks like he is going thru premature male pattern balding.

*stares at the photo somemore*

He looks downright creepy.

I’m going back to lazing.

Peace.

Johnny Deep, £40,000 & the 500 crew

19 Oct

He spent £40,000 on waterproof hiking coats for the 500 crew of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

To protect them from the icy cold weather in Buckinghamshire, England.

I wish I was one of them crew  members.  Read the full article HERE.

I have been a fan of most of Johnny Depp’s movies.  The very 1st one that captured my attention was Edward Scissorhands back in 1990.  And I must have watched that movie like… … oh not much… … 100 times???????

Edward: omg!  I see rust!

 

Is it because of his crazy uncombed hair that is badly in need of a Loreal treatment?

Or that dazed psychotic eyes that suffers from severe dark eye circles?

Hmmm…

I also like the musical Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.  It started out with me staring at the TV screen like this     (O_O) WTH is this?????    to attempting to sing along with the dark music.  Some of the tunes are actually quite catchy.

Of course, everyone’s favorite character must have been Captain Jack Sparrow.

If I were as rich as Johnny Depp, would I have done the same for the crew?  Never in a million  years would the thought of waterproof hiking coats come across my mind.

… … sounds so… … … … … … unthoughtful of me.

I’M SORRY I’M SORRY WITH THE PASSION OF A THOUSAND SUNS!!!!!!!!!  I’M SO SO SORRY!!!!!!!!

I will attempt to be a better person in my New Year’s Resolution 2011.

That is why it is good for me (and the rest of the unthoughtful people of the world) to read articles of kindness like this Johnny Depp one.  He is probably thankful for getting to where he is right now, which is rich & famous.  And he is giving back to the people who are indirectly or directly contributing to his success.

I am guessing that most of us do not even carry out random acts of kindness for our own immediate family, let alone strangers.  We just take & take & take whatever people give to us.

We should be thankful for the little things in life & give back to others.

So this weekend, I will start by bringing my Mummy out for dinner because she has relentlessly cooked delicious homecooked food for the spoilt brats in my family for the past 30+ years.

What would you be doing for your loved ones?  =)

Why we like to spook ourselves during Hungry Ghost Month?

27 Aug

I am beginning to see a trend here.

During Chinese New Year, there is always some Jackie Chan movie or a Jack Neo movie.

For this Hungry Ghost Month, we have:

*shudders shudders*

A while ago, when I was at Golden Village Tampines Mall, the poster that I saw hypnotised me.  While my friends were buying popcorn, there is just something about this poster that beckons to me, “Berry… Berry… lai ah… guo lai ah**”.

**chinese-english translation: come over here

 

I was so fixated with this poster, mainly because it’s creepy & intriguing at the same time.  If you cannot see anything out of the ordinary with this dark shady poster, then you better go get your eyes checked.

Today, there was a review of the movie that is due to be released on 02 Sept.  Read it HERE.  It appears that the filmmakers have a blog as well (which you can find in the link).

I have to admit that during my younger & more fearless years, a group of my friends decided that it was super fun to visit the haunted places around Singapore.  There was the old Toa Payoh Hospital & some white house or red house on a hill, and that one other place with the 2 stone lions at the front of the abandoned gates, a couple of graveyards.  We have also gone into this old Changi Hospital as featured in the movie.

Nothing scary happened to us in the old Changi Hospital. *CHOY*

But I have to say that my first horror adventure was when Jon drove us to the old Toa Payoh Hospital, we all smelt something funny (and I’m not talking about funky smells like farts or body odor).  It was a sweet fragrance.  And stupid me, who was a newbie to all these religious dos & don’ts actually opened my mouth and said, “wah lau eh… one of you is overpowering me with your perfume sia“.

Everyone’s immediate response to that was a BIG LOUD…

“SHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!”

 

So rude, right?

Wrong.

Apparently I’m not supposed to be pointing any smells out.

HOW I KNOW AH?????????  Nobody gave me a 101 Dummy’s guide to Do’s & Don’ts When You Visit A Haunted House!

In the old Toa Payoh hospital, it was visually kind of scary.  I think some devil worshippers have made some offerings there, drew some demon faces on the wall with red paint (or blood), white candles everywhere, no lighting (of course, what was I thinking), creeky doors & also that strange sweet fragrance which I should have shut up about.

Then there was that abandoned big grand house on a hill.  On another occasion, Jon got to drive his dad’s lorry so he trucked the whole lot of us sitting at the back of the lorry.  Again, feeling young & foolish dangerous, we wanted to get a cheap thrill again.  But even before we drove up that hill, this VERY HOSTILE dirty-looking skinny old Indian woman jumped out of NOWHERE & started to, “pehpliiiii kalikuna baplikanonaaa piplaaa” or something like that because all of us couldn’t understand what she was shouting to us.  She has a pair of transparent looking bulging eyes.  Her pupils did not look black, but more towards a lighter shade of bluish-grey.

Jon was so shocked that he immediately swerved the lorry around so sharply that we banged against the side of the lorry panels.  Still thanking our lucky stars that we did not fall over the panels & having to face the old indian lady alone.  I mean, getting injured is one thing but facing that old lady with the bulging eyes was a whole different issue.

Now that I think about it, I guess that old indian lady was just protecting some illegal immigrants who were sleeping in that abandoned building on the hill.  Or was there something more than meets the eye?  Hmmmm…

Another occasion, we went to the Bidadari Cemetery some time near midnight.  No lorry this time, Jon drove his dad’s car.  The gates to the cemetery were opened, so Jon decided to reverse into the cemetery instead of driving head first.  His logic was that if anything happened, we could make a quick getaway.  Good idea!

But as he was reversing, he suddenly said, “eh… how come the back window is so blur??  I can’t see anything“.

All of us turned around & noticed this mist or fog slowly but surely enveloping the entire car from the back.

I was seated at the back of the car & I looked out the side window nearest to me and saw how the water vapour was forming on the window.  It almost covered the entire side window when one of our friends seated in the front passenger seat told Jon to just drive off.

I told them it was just water vapour because there were a lot of trees in the cemetery.  But the friend who was seated in the front passenger seat said that he thought he saw a figure in the fog, that was why he told Jon to drive out.

*can feel the hairs standing on my body now*

m.. m… maybe it’s the caretaker???

That was actually the last time we visited haunted places again.

Also, now that we are older & probably wiser, we either outgrown cheap thrills or we decided not to put our noses where they don’t belong.

I still have so many real-life encounters of the unknown.  But I shall leave that to next time.  I don’t think it is healthy to scare yourself for a prolonged period of time.

(O_O) 

W…w…. w… WHO’S THAT BEHIND YOU?!?!?!?!?!

just kidding.

or maybe not.

:-p

I Want The Perfect Camera

20 Aug

Is there even such a thing as the perfect camera?

Why must I be faced with so many choices.  My friends already know how indecisive I am.  And if they give me more than 1 choice, I start to blank out.  The conversation will always go in the same direction:

———————

Friend – so what do you want to eat?

BerryMii – i dunno.

Friend – then where do you want to go?

BerryMii – anything.

Friend – what about chicken rice at Kim San Leng?

BerryMii – dun wan lah.

Friend – then you still say anything?!

BerryMii – then ok lah ok lah.

Friend – you wan to eat chicken rice or not???

BerryMii – ok lor. anything.

Friend – or you wan to eat fast food or pastamania?

BerryMii – *silence for a long time, pondering over her choices*

Friend – shit man, gave her too many choices, now she got big problem deciding.  Then we go & eat chicken rice.

BerryMii – but i feel like Italian today.

Friend – then pastamania lor.

BerryMii – i think dun wan lah, chicken rice lor.

Friend – ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! *stabs himself in the heart*..

BerryMii – why? what did I do?

———————

Anyway, I kind of like the new MFT (Micro-Four Thirds) camera by Olympus E-P1.  Read more HERE.

Goddamn.

Did you see the red one????????  SO CHIO, RIGHT??????????????????  Actually there is another color that I love & is in that weblink to Olympus, it is the silver body with the beige side handle.  Isn’t it vintage???  I love vintage.

I know everyone thinks that I’m going to buy a product the second it comes in a color that I like again.  Just like what I did with my current mobile phone – Sony Ericsson Satio.  There were tons of news about SE closing down or that their mobile phones are not as competitive or software not as good as whatever blah blah blah or why dun get the iPhone instead.  But you know what?  WHO THE HELL CARES when SE can design the most super chio hp with a 12.1 megapixel camera???????????

wahhhh… chiooooooooooooooo…. Who can resist this?????  TELL ME!!!  WHO CAN RESIST?!?!?!?!

It was sitting in a store behind glass display.  I walked past & was blinded by this shiny redness.  Immediately, I ran into the store & drooled at it for a good 5mins.  Wondering should I get it or should I not???  I just bought the SE 905… or was it the SE 910i.  errrmmm… well… I can’t remember.  I bought too many hps.  But I think you know by now that I’m a Sony Ericsson fan.  Previously I bought Nokia mobile phones, but then SE came out with so many pretty ones.  So………. yeah.  I bought it anyway.  Without contract.  So you can imagine how much I paid for it.

ANYWAY.

So yeah.  In order not to buy on impulse, I did some research on some of the digital cameras in the market.  And the Olympus E-PL1 was one of them, but then I found out that a newer model is launched just 5 months after the E-PL1.  Introducing the new & improved (how can it be new AND improved? It is either new OR improved) Olympus E-PL2!!!

But it only comes in black.

So boring one.

I looked around some more.  And there is the Sony Nex-7 that is yet to be out in the market???  It has a shimmering silver!  Or maybe it’s just the photo effect.  You know how some food photos look so good, but when you order it, the veggies are placed in an untidy manner & the meat somehow dun look as big & juicy.

See below for the upcoming model: Sony Nex-7.

It has such a slim skinny body like mine.  Stop calling me Pai Gu Jin (chinese-english translation: Skeleton Spirit).  *credit Christina Aguilera-Beautiful* I am beautiful, no matter what they say.  Words can’t bring me down.  So don’t you bring me down today.

Love that song & music video.

Digressing a bit.  Just saw the movie trailers for Grown Up starring Adam Sandler.  It’s so funny at the pool part where the little girl screamed & the water turned dark blue becuz the grown ups peed in the pool & everybody ran away!!! HAHAHAHAHAA!!!  I’m going to watch it.  Adam Sandler has always been one of my favorite comedian idols, even though he did that one boring sleeper movie called Punch Drunk Love.  But to me, he is still ONE DA FU ONE DA FU~~~~~~~~~

Last camera that caught my interest is the Canon PowerShot G11.  Read more HERE.

Or or.. maybe the Canon 550D??  Even though it’s gigantour.  Read the specs HERE.

I think everyone knows by now that I know nuts about cameras.  I read up on the specifications of each one, but it’s really too much to absorb.  Seriously need professional good help.

Why can’t good digi-cameras come in chio-red or pink, small & light-weight, excellent megapixels with image stabilizer, a huge variety of photo effects, CHEAP, user-friendly, with a flippy view screen so that you can take self-portraits with ease.

Sigh.

I love taking pictures everywhere I go.  Right now, I’m just surviving on my pretty SE Satio.  Surprisingly convenient & reasonably good photos.  But I want a proper camera that is easy to carry around & not the bulky DSLR kind.  And hopefully I won’t change my mind after buying it.

All these camera studying is making me sleepy.  I’m going to dream about the perfect camera now.  I really want one NAO NAO NAOOOOO~~~~~~~

Btw, the Starhub Football Channel is showing women’s football now  (Sunday 15 august wee morning at 0143 hrs).  FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup 2010.  Germany & Nigeria.  These women footballers are just as rough as the men.  I love it.  One of the Nigerians is called Sunday and… …. OH SHIT!!! GERMANY JUST SCORED in the 8th minute by Popp!!!!!  And now all the German players gather together on the field & did some lame cheesy cheerleading dance for the fans.  😐   … *speechless*… I…. really dunno what to say about that.  😐   ok, I think I do now.  I would like to see the men footballers pull an All-The-Single-Ladies on the field after a goal, just like in that one Glee episode.

Wait.

What was I saying about Sunday earlier??

I cannot recall already.  Oh well.

Simply Red Concert + other gay videos

19 Aug

I was on Facebook when a guy friend of mine (let’s just call him Dunny) told me that there is a Simply Red Concert coming up in September.  He said that it is going to sound gay but he is going to a Simply Red concert no matter what, but it is not as gay as Boy George.  Then he sends me this youtube clip on a song called Stars.


If the video doesn’t show up properly, click the direct link HERE.

I didn’t know how gay it was but the first 5 seconds of the music video already confirmed it.

And I dunno if you realized by there is some kind of red lettuce stuck in his teeth throughout the video. I told Dunny that & he told me that I should have just looked the other way. But I still think that Simply Red should have fired his music video producer.

Then at around 2:29 into the video, Simply Red shakes his dreadlocks in the most ultimate gay-unsexy way.

And at 3:00, there was a pair of lips in the sky. Just the lips. But Dunny said that the term is called psychedelic. Really?? A pair of lips in the sky is psychedelic?  Okay, if you say so.

Dunny then persuades me to view a 2nd video.

Again, if the damn video doesn’t show up properly, the direct link is HERE.

All I can say is… … … Dunny, you are a serious closet drag queen.

Then he proceeds to send me this classic.  OMG.  FINALLY.  something that is gay, but sounds great.  Actually isn’t this the Gatsby commercial song?!?!?!?!??!?!?!  I didn’t know that it was sung by black men in falsetto voices!!!!!!!  Quite lovely!!!!

Yet again, the direct link is HERE.  I dunno why sometimes the youtube videos dun show up properly on my page.  =(  I’m so not IT savvy.

And and… the lead singer looks like my History teacher in secondary school.  Mr Ramachandran!!!  I didn’t know you sang for The Stylistics!!!  You rock, man!!!  If you sang like that in your classes, I would have paid more attention to you!!!

Dunny knows I have great stirring feelings for Takuya Kimura, so he sent me this youtube video on a Gatsby commercial & labelled it gay, but don’t guys get it by now?????  Whatever Kimura does is NOT gay, it’s just good ole sexiness!  WATCH WATCH!!! omg.  Halt, my racing heart!!

Direct link to KIMURA is HERE.

OMG, KIMURA!!! *squeals in pillow*… you definitely same sexy as Adam Lambert!!!!!!  Me love you long time!!!

*repeats Kimura Gatsby video for another 17 times*

By the way, do you realize that those self-proclaimed gay people are usually the more talented ones??  Just look at Adam Lambert, Ellen Degeneres, Boy George, Elton John… just to name a few.  They are just more interesting (Adam Lambert), funnier (Ellen D) & seemingly nicer… not to mention, sexier (Adam Lambert).  Maybe we should all be free from inhibitions too.

Abrupt end of blog post.

Luv
Berry Mii
