My Lazy Boyfriend [Oct. 4th, 2007|10:38 am]
bookofmusic
Lao niang is super pissed off with those ignorant stupid people criticising about what the Boyfriend wrote for Yanyan.

My Chinese standard is not too bad but I'll never judge anyone's work if he/she can worte something like that, simply because I know very well that I am nowhere near there.

“在关公面前耍大刀” 听过吗? 不自量力!

I asked Boyfriend to speak up for himself. He refused 'cos "it's pointless and troublesome to explain to those who obviously don't know and thinks that they know."

懒惰虫!

I don't like people to talk bad about him lah!!
*气愤地跺脚*

RRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRR

Harry Potter [Jul. 23rd, 2007|11:06 pm]
bookofmusic
Don't read if you haven't finish it!











I finished the 7th and last book of the Harry Potter series at 6pm today.
From then till now, I am still overwhelmed.
While I was shopping for food, while I was preparing dinner, while I was eating and while I was bathing, snippets of the story kept flashing through my mind followed by tears welling up.

It's so weird to have so many mixed feelings about a book or 7 books, if you ask me.
Don't get me wrong, I am very happy with the way Joanne Rowling ends it. There could be better ways, I don't know. But if she wants it this way, it shall be it.
However, I am sad at the same time. Sad to realize that this is the end. (I feel like crying, again.)

I've never cried so much over a story.

That how genius Rowling is.

We all know that 2 main characters are going to die. But the Harry Potter series and the entire wizarding world don't only make up of main characters.

The thing about Harry Potter is that every single thing counts.
Even Hedwig, the owl.
Believe it or not, she is my favorite character in the book. (Because of her, I visited the nocturnal birds gallery so often during my internship in the BirdPark to look at the snowy owls. Beautiful.)

Ever single character or creature in the book as its own very distinct characteristics. You'll just know who they are, important or not. And they are all very 'real', even in the fantasy world.

Logical in a non-logical world. Ironic as it may sound, it all made sense in HP.

I can't remember all the little details like Yanyan does. She is amazing, I tell you. Almost insane.
But here are the parts of the stories that went deep down inside.

1) When Harry tried to talk Hermoine and Ron out of embarking on the search of Horcruxes with him, they told him what they have already done in support of their friend.
Hermoine modified the memory of her parents. She changed their identities, made them think that it was their life ambition to live in Australia, where they, of course, went to, just so that they will be safe from Voldemort and his followers. And she made them forget that they have a daughter. *sobs*

2) Hedwig died.

3) Dobby died while saving Harry. Harry dug his grave manually with a spade(when he could have just used magic) to honour the house-elf. Harry, Ron and Dean dressed Dobby's body with their own clothings.

4)Colin Creevy died. He stayed back to fight even when he was underaged. He's one of Harry's most loyal supporter.

5) Severus Snape. (Rowling is a GENIUS)

(Ok, I want to cry already.)

6)Lupin and Tonks have a baby. They made Harry his godfather. Lupin and Tonks died in the battle.

7)Neville killed Nagini when Harry was dead. Harry told him to do it before he went to meet his death.

8)Harry named one of his children, Albus Severus Potter. Albus was worried that he would get into Slytherin. Harry told him, ""you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew."

Book 7 wrapped up EVERYTHING. It linked up little tiny details from Book 1-6 which you might think they are unimportant then. It makes you go, "Oh oooohhh.."

Harry Potter was targeted at young boys.
I don't know if kids will relate it like I do.
We went through Harry Potter's life with him, from baby to adult.
Fiction it may be, but it felt like we share his burden and responsibilities of life, and we can relate to it. Even though his is more to the dramatic side.

During the period of darkness and despair, people are risking their lives to fight for the greater good. Greater good seems to be a rather vague thing, with no definite explanation. But in the story, it's like you can FEEL what it is really about: when Dudley shook Harry's hand, when Bill and Fleur got married, when Lupin and Tonks had their son, naming him after Tonk's father, and everybody drinking a toast congratulating Lupin, even when Draco nod at Ron and Harry on Platform 9 and 3/4...

就是那刻骨铭心的心路历程让读者们动容.从年少的童真与对未来的完美向往至被迫面对真实未来中的残酷与压力,虽然间中参杂着恐惧,迷惘,愤怒,甚至于死亡;但却是凸显了真正让人类生存下去的原动力:人与人之间的忠诚,爱,分享及贡献所带来的快乐与希望.

I don't know if I made sense.

Rowling deserves every single cent she makes from Harry Potter.

I think I'll go read it again. And then, I'll start from Book 1 through the very last page of the last book.

Abigail [Jun. 29th, 2007|01:31 am]
bookofmusic

Sometimes I feel kinda embarrassed to blog.
'Cos I lead such a boring life.. and that nothing much is interesting enough for me to pen it down.
I hate those mundane blogs, remember?

The only worthy stuff (in my POV) nowadays is my beloved, cute, smart, cheeky, beautiful, darling ABIGAIL.

I don't want to sound like I'm obsessed with Abigail, by keep blogging about Abigail, saying nothing but how adorable Abigail is.
OH WAIT! Abigail just sneezed, I got to go and check whether Abigail is alright!

.
.
.
.
.
.
I'm back.

Anyway, yes, this entry is about Abigail.

This is a classic.

Abigail has A LOT OF toys.

To date, she has 4 trunks of toys (do you know those huge plastic storage boxes?) , plus a cooking stove that's as tall as she is, plus a super market trolley, plus one battery-operated motorbike and one small car, plus a full size tent, and 1 locker-sized shelf full of books.

This is only at her own house.

I think she has 2 trunks at her gong gong's house, and a LEGO TABLE.

I'm not counting the soft toys at both places.

Okok, back to the classic.

There's this little puzzle that she always play with. She'll always start with the butterfly head
The thing is, she'll tell me that it's a BEE.
Whenever I correct her, she'll just say that it's a bee again and again and laugh.

(Her smile is a killer since she was a baby. Now she has an additional dimple. HOW TO NOT LIKE HER, YOU TELL ME?)

So...Zhengchang came over to play with her.
She took out the puzzle and I ask, "Enen, what is this?"
She replied, "Bee!"

=___=!!!

So I nudged Zhengchang to ask her the same question. Same thing, he asked, "Enen, what is this?"
Abigail said, "Butterfly!"

The Ah Yi a.k.a me went hysterics.
"I THOUGHT YOU SAID IT'S BEE? EVERY TIME AH YI ASKS YOU, YOU SAID IT'S A BEE! SO WHAT IS IT NOW?"

She WHISPERED NONCHALANTLY, "B for butterfly..."

Hen li hai.

I lose.

And it made me love her more. Haha.

If you haven't fall in love with her like I did, take a look at these:






Btw, it's the boyfriend in the last 2 pictures. I secretly thinks that he is in love with me partly 'cos of Abigail. Shhhhhhhhh...

I'm so not obsessed about Abigail. Really.

Happy Vesak Day!

Very pointless, I know. Heh heh.

Abigail is getting cuter and cuter.

She learnt this sentence from us: "Why (insert name) like that?" (Jia lat liao. Singlish is being passed down to the next generation.)

Sometimes when you do (stupid) things which are suppose to make the average babies laugh, she suddenly pop the question. HAO XIAO!

That day, her mum was running and screaming 'cos there was a cockroach. I grab Abigail and sat in the room to wait for the pandemonium to be over, Abigail turned and ask, "A-yi, why Mama like that?"

Madam Mok! 你被自己的女儿笑!

Ok, bye bye, 谢谢, 再联络.

Update [Mar. 10th, 2007|01:53 pm]

Hello peeps, long time no see.
Lots have happened since no idea went.
My uncle was hospitalised right before V-day. Thus, I missed celebrating V-day-cum-anniversary as well as CNY.
Luckily he's alright now..zhe bi shen me dou zhong yao.
So, I've been busy shuffling between the hospital and home, as well as to fetch my princess Abigial to and fro school.

Recently, I've been thinking about going back to school. Get a degree or something..
I laid my eyes on BA in Fashion Marketing and Management but it's so expensive and I have to obtain the Advance Diploma too.. Diploma again. =(
If the study plan is to happen..then I'll probably find a part time job at a reputable boutique to build up the resume.

Alright..got to go..ZC's going for choir practice and I'm going to the hospital.

xie xie da jia de guan xin, wo ai ni men!

Boyfriend is having exams, thus my life has been pretty mundane.
But CYY is back! We are going to have a slumber party. But could be just the 2 of us. Will probably ask her to scratch my back.

On a bo liao note, there's this nice fishball noodles stall at Bras Basah foodcourt with FREE FLOW LARD AND CHILLI AND CHOPPED GARLIC.

I've been getting alot of mosquito bites recently. TMD.

Anyway..back to my sewing orders. Slots are still available.

I miss Abbie. =(

Some people asked me about the dress I made for Yanyan.

I'm taking orders for that but I'll only make a maximum for 5 pieces.
(Pink is unavailable. That's only for Yanyan.)

Email me at bookofmusic@gmail.com or leave a comment if you are interested.

I'm selling at SGD$70 nett each.
(It's ok if you think it's too expensive. It's my own design, handmade + machine made and there are only these few pieces around.)

Sewn a couple of pieces too. Shall put up the pics when I have the time. =)

Adios!

Supposed to meet up with ZhengPeng and his girlfriend, to sing. And then they cancelled on us at the very last minute.
Luckily DaNeNe and Lamlam were around and sporting enough to make the 'double date' happen. Heh.
