that's wot they say when you put 2 & 4 together

Yay!! So happy - I got myself a birthday present that I had always always wanted! The FRIENDS 10-season DVD boxset! I made that wish last November. And and and I got it at a bargain. It was $333.99 before and I only paid $168....
Should really thank Aunty Shoba and Karine who took me out for lunch - otherwise I wouldn't have walked into JB Hifi and bought it. Yea it was quite an effort to buy the DVDs - been trying hard to bid it on eBay but I lost, EVERY SINGLE TIME. Hahaha... If it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be; that's wot they say.
Just wanna thank the people who sent me birthday cards from Sydney (WinWin), KL (Edmund), Ukraine (Siew Jing) and KL again (MOON). And other bunch of people who called and sms-ed.
Oh I'm so screwed for my exam on Tuesday...I am finishing my season 1 of the DVD. It's like 7 more to go (Yea I've watched seaons 9 and 10 a million times). Wish me luck.. It's not really unachievable - I scooped the who 9 series of the X-files during the last exam season.
Again, thanks everyone...

Transformers - Robots in disguise

I-CANNOT-FUCKING-BELIEVE-THIS. This is another dream come true after the X-Men. It's definitely going to be a must-watch 2007 for me.

Don't you wish you hadn't eaten BEANS?

Famous Fart Food

The most famous farting food is the bean. What is it about these little things that cause such a stink? Beans contain sugars that we can't digest. When these sugars make it to our intestines, the bacteria go berserk, start feasting and make loads of gas. Other foods that are great for making you fart are broccoli, cabbage, raw apples, milk and raisins. So if your best friend has a broccoli and cabbage salad for lunch with an apple for recess and a big glass of milk - Don't sit too close on the bus ride home.

Now you know...

w0w!! there's something u don't c everyday

The 2 photos above were taken at Volkswagen's new storage facility in Wolfsburg, Germany. The actual space that the facility occupies is approximately only 20% of a comparable facility with the traditional design that is used primarily in the US. Not only is the German structure less expensive to build, but vehicles are also "retrieved" in less time and without the potential of being damaged by an attendant.

Collecting your new car is an event in itself. "In a fully automated procedure, your new car is brought down to you from one of the 20-story Car Towers. Large signboards in the Customer Center show you when your turn has come. Then, you're handed the keys, your picture is taken, the glass doors open and your brand-new car appears. You're all set to go".

Disneyland in (Johore) Malaysia?

Yea, unless it was just a rumour or the truth that has been rejected =P more comprehensive review here.

Stormy Apologies

I would like to apologise for being a biatch in my review for X-Men: The Last Stand, especially on Storm.

I just did some research and recall from the comic collections, that the fight between Storm and Callisto was in fact quite a defining moment in the X-Men history.

You see Callisto was far from as pretty as the character in the movie. She was one of the sewage people. Yes you heard me right. There are mutants who live in the sewage systems. I don't know why but they all looked very deformed physically. They are called the Morlocks.

What happened was that the Morlocks had captured the X-Men. Callisto, leader of the underground mutant camp, intended to marry Angel (the mutant who has wings). Kitty Pryde was dying, infected by a disease caused by one of the Morlocks. Storm went on to challenge Callisto in a hand-to-hand duel-to-the-death battle for the exchange of freedom of the fellow X-Men.

Ororo, who was still weak suffering the same disease, struggled in the batter. After being cut several tmes, she ensnared Callisto with her cape and stabbed her in the chest.

This intelligent blending, from comic to movie, also took part where Cyclops wasn't available to the team as the long-serving leader. And it was the first time Ororo ever killed. I was very shocked to see the change the battle had done to Storm. She was no longer the typical goddess with long-hair and long white soft dress. Instead, she became this punk woman with hair that grew only on the middle of her head and she was wearing tight leather jeans etc. Thereafter she became the leader of the X-Men for a period of time before Cyclops returned.

Her originally maternal-like bond with Kitty changed too, after the battle...even though they did make up after some serious misunderstandings.
