World updates~or how it seems

Imagine you throwing shoes at your country leader here in Malaysia.

You might end up in the ISA (well, it seems to round up people with any cause available)

Check out this man who hurled TWO, yes, TWO shoes at George W. Bush.

This news is kinda old, but then, I just knew about it today. Blame me for not keeping in tabs with the world news.

A round of applause for Bush for being so calm despite being the public's enemy. And he still can ask, "So what if he threw the shoes at me?" I take my hats off you, Mr President.

On the other note, Geoge Bush can really consider joining us for dodgeball competitions after his step down from the presidential next year. That guy can dodge!!


p/s: The last thing that I heard that is that throwing shoes at someone is the greatest insult to the particular person. And yes, the one who threw the shoes at Bush is a Iraqi journalist.

p/s 2: Check out here. This new article talks about how all the rivals cobblers claimed that the shoes that were being hurled at George W. Bush was made by them.

Do you like movies from Disney?

Do you like animations from Pixar?

If you like both, then check out this two videos.

Carl Fredricksen (Edward Asner) is 78 years old and walks like a hunchback with his tripod cane. When Carl was a child, he met and eventually married a girl na
med Ellie who grew up in a small midwestern town. Ellie always dreamed of exploring the mountains but passed away before she got a chance. Now, when developers threaten to move him into an assisted living home, Carl decides to fulfill his promise to Ellie. To accomplish this, he befriends a chubby 9-year-old Wilderness Explorer named Russell. The two opposites match up for thrilling adventures as they encounter wild terrain, unexpected villains, and all the terrifying creatures that wait in the jungle.

Up is an upcoming computer-animated 3-D film being produced by Pixar Animation Studios. It will be distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, and is scheduled for release on May 29, 2009.

Well, I enjoyed animation movies, so let's just cross our fingers and hope that both of these movies can be a hit at the box office.


Don't you think this poster somehow looks like all those Mummy movie posters?


I do not really know of The Race to Witch Mountain though, but I personally are looking forward for UP!

Here are more footages from the movie.








Yes, my name is Mr. Carl Fredrickson

For my loved one

I am still with the Westlife fever if you ask me.

Remember that I told you guys before about how my English teacher in Form 4 tease me about Westlife? If you haven't. just scroll down, it is down there.. somewhere.

Well, ironically something happen today. I mean yesterday, given the time is already over 12am. It was Miss Wee's birthday (the English teacher) and I sms-ed her to wish her Happy Birthday. As usual, I mentioned to her that she does not need to worry because I had already forgotten how old she is. (well, she don't really like to reveal her age you see..)

Anyway, the funny part was that I told her that I am already attached. The first reaction that she gave me was, "Wah wat ur bf lk like? Westlife?" (yes, she is my English teacher and that is the way she sms) I was laughing when I received her reply and told her that it was nothing of that sort.

I told her that my boyfriend is not good-looking, but then he treat me very well. Then she replied me saying that I was smart to choose for good ones than going for handsome ones.
And the last thing that I sms-ed her was telling her that I am already attached for the past six months.

Six months.

Woah.

That equals to half a year.

Six months ain't long, but it ain't short either.

He may not be the best looking guy, but he is good enough for me.

6 months and still counting.

I ain't good at this, so I will just say everthing through these videos. My favourites.

From Westlife of course.

Bleach~

For those who are addicted to Bleach, and can't wait to watch the newest Bleach episode and Dattebayo is giving u alot of headache..

Why not head on to this link and click on your favourite anime episodes?

Bleachget.com, compared to Youtube and also other website that caters Bleach episodes, it serves much better due to the fact that this website only have Bleach episodes and also movies.

It is way much faster, hence, you won't find the need to throw your temper when the connection is slow.

Seriously, you should try this website.

And if you think you had watched all the Bleach movies, think again.

I found an OVA in this website too.

Entitled The Sealed Sword Frenzy, it is the first Bleach OVA.

You can download or watch it here.

Movies~ Taiyou no uta

Gloomy day today.
And surprisingly cold.
And I am still hungry because the dinner was stale just now and I feel like as if I had nothing for dinner.

Anyway, totally random-ness strikes again. So I am blogging randomly (again) and while I am typing on the keyboard, at the same time I am actually thinking of what can I post in my blog today.

R-A-N-D-O-M

Then I found this~ YUI-san!!

There aren't many Japanese movie that I like (apart from anime of course) but this is a must-watch.

The Midnight Sun, or better known as Taiyou No Uta, was YUI's debut on the television screen.

In the movie, she plays the role of Kaoru Amane , a 16 year old girl who suffers from the rare skin condition xeroderma pigmentasium (XP), a disease that makes the ultraviolet radiation of sunlight potentially lethal to her. Yui's character is partly based on herself, as she is an amateur singer and guitarist in the movie.

YUI performed 3 songs in the movie and the most notable one will of course be, Goodbye Days.

Well, this movie may not be as touching as One litre of Tears (nope, I did not watch that) , but still, it is still one of the best Japanese movie ever that I watched. Maybe it is due to the fact that YUI is in it.

But just to let you know, this movie is from quite a few years back, so do not say that I did not tell you about this.

You can stream the movie from Crunchyroll or from Youtube, or you can also get it from here.

As for now, I had included the theme song from Taiyou No Uta, Goodbye Days.

Goodbye Days-YUI

So now, I’m going to meet you
that’s what I’ve decided

this song in my pocket

I want you to hear it
softly raising the volume

I’ve already tried
and made sure


oh Good-bye days,
now
there’s a feeling of change up until yesterday
so long

because there’s an uncool kindness beside me
~with you

I hand the other earphone to you
it flows slowly
this moment are you loving well?
even though you lose your way sometimes

oh Good-bye days,
now
the heart that started to change
alright
because there’s an uncool kindness beside me
~with you

if possible
I’d want to
not think any sad thoughts
but you’ll show up, right?
that time,
with a smile

even if you could say something like
“Yeah hello!! my friend”
that’d be nice
when we’re humming
the same song
be next to me,
I wish
I’m glad
I met
an uncool kindness

…goodbye days

~YUI-san

The Dawn of the Age (2012)


2012

The number sounds familiar?

Of course.

This is the day that everything on Earth wil eventually come to end.


December 12, 2012.


I personally just stumble across this few hours ago and come to this surprising this fact (speaking of not keeping in tab with the world news)


Not so long ago, many people were convinced of the world’s impending doom.
Nostradamus predicted terror descending from the sky in July 1999. On New Year’s Day 2000, we made it unscathed through Y2K and the near-hysterical scenarios that every computer across the planet would crash due to a basic time-keeping glitch.


So why does this prediction seem different?


One of the main theories driving this prophecy is that the Mayan calendar ends on Dec. 21, 2012. The Mayans studied our sun and made their prophecies based on the cycles of the sun.
Based on their observations, the Mayans predicted that from the initial date of the start of their civilization, 3113 B.C., one cycle being completed would be 5,125 years in their future, Dec. 21, 2012. The sun, having received a powerful ray of synchronizing light from the center of the galaxy, would change its polarity which would produce a great cosmic event that would propel human kind to be ready to cross into a new era, "The Golden Age." (from here)


According to the Mayan calendar, it is the last day for them and it is the Final Age for them. (check out here). Many catostrophe were already predicte for that particular year itself and the most notable one will be on Christmas Eve 2012, the sky is divided by the sun and all dry land begins to rise. The oceans respond to the tectonic shifts and the great flooding of the Earth begins.


Well, talk about end of the world. How much do you believe in it?


How much are you digesting this fact?


Do you believe in this?


I guess Roland Emmerich does. From the guy who directed "The Day After Tomorrow", comes another epic on how the world shall end in a day.


In this movie that is set to release in 2009, it talks about.. what else? But Doomsday.

So what will you do if you are only left with 3hours in this world before everything perish?


Will you run back to your family? Will you stay side by side with your loved ones?


Or will you seek closure that you had never done before?


2012.


Is far beyond my thoughts.

But if it really happens, I want to stay by his side (you know who you are). But for now, I just want to live life to the fullest.
