overwhelm with eastern promise.

exactly wat comes to your mind if you see me holding a book like tis? u dun have to lie now. naturally, the first thing u'd ask me is, "chris, are you reading a porn?" i wouldnt blame you, as i've gotten such remarks so many times while i was reading it. even my younger sister gave me a sheepish smile look when she spot me reading the book. and i wont forget to mention about the amount of stare i get in lrt. men and women gave me a judgemental look while thinking whether i was out of my mind holding up a porn like that in the broad daylight. well, i'm reading such an interesting cultural book mind you! now stop being envious of me for having the ability to choose such a great read! wahahha.. *evil laughs*

let me share with you the synopsis of 'sputnik sweetheart' by haruki murakami here:
twenty-two year old sumire is in love with a woman seventeen years her senior. but whereas miu is glamorous and successful, sumire is an aspiring writer who dresses in an oversized second-hand coat and heavy boots like a character in a kerouac novel.

surprised that she might, after all, be a lesbian, sumire spends hours on the phone talking to her best friend k about the big questions in life: what is sexual desire and should she ever tell miu how she feels about her.

frustrated in his own love for sumire, k consoles himself by having an affair with the mother of one of his pupils. then a desperate miu calls from a small greek island and asks for his help, and he discovers that something very strange has happened to sumire.

i have long heard of murakami's books from karen. and i was delighted when borders was having a promotion on titles by the eastern authors. which means, more books, books, and books to add to my collections!! have you read any by wei hui? the author of 'shanghai baby' and 'marrying buddha'? those are very interesting reads as well. 'shanghai baby' was reportedly banned and burned in china due to its controversial portrayal of wei hui's generation of urban women, born in the 1970s, as they search for moral grounding in a country of shifting values. interesting, doncha think? read that, and then follow up by 'marrying buddha'. i guarantee you, these books are a real eye opener. i am used to reading a lot of chick lits and autobiography, eastern titles are now adding to my list of interests as well.

i am sharing more books by the eastern promise:vintage book collection that has been released recently here. do check 'em out. i have bought norwegian wood by haruki murakami, autobiography of a geisha by sayo masuda, the sailor who fell from grace with the sea by yukio mishima, and waiting by ha jin.

*surrounded by books* now will you excuse me, i still have more than 20 new titles stack up on my book shelves waiting for me.. i have lost count.

loosen up my buttons.

i'm tellin' you to loosen up my buttons babe (uh huh)
but you keep frontin' (uh)
sayin' what you gon' do to me (uh huh)
but i ain't seen nothin' (uh)

tis one is for LB *muaccks!*

i think i lost count of how many i have, but believe me, this red knapsack i used to carry is full of 'em!!! got square ones, round ones, hugE ones.. some are gifts, some i bought myself over the years.. i still think they're real cooolz!!!

everyone, show us ur buttons!!

wackos hall of fame.

i need autographs!

RED alert!

okAy.. i admit, this may not be the most original and fresh entry as LB has started this tag with this COLOR. buuuuut, i wanna do RED!! *pout first to add hor leen factor*

so here it is! the new-style tagging originated from L B; tagged by littlemissmay centuries ago, on six mindless but colour-coordinated pictures..

1. one of my favorite threadless T, 'in case of emergency, break dance'
2. mr.p (the mini) hiding in my room, i have another bigger one lying on top of my office's monitor
3. a bouquet with love
4. my first crumpler, 'the western lawn' bought in singapore
5. the voodoo doll and his partner-in-crime, veggie monster
6. my mainichi organiser from kinokuniya

wednesday blues.

my comfy bed. my fluffy pillows. my dusty toys. my novels. my magazines. my crowded desk. my art. my CDs. my photo albums. my heart. my soul. my everything.

i always always have this weird longing of hiding in my room everytime i’m home every fortnight. its not dat i have a very beautiful room to boast about or watever. but i love my space. and i can lock myself in forever.

it feels good to be alone (tho i’d get out of my hiding hole occasionally n kacau my parents, siblings and the fishes), and have the time to sort out my plans, read for the longest time on my bed, watch endless dvds on my faithful laptop, and blast the same music tune over n over again without anybody poking out of annoyance from behind.

damn.. its been so long since i last had the chance to blog in da office. now, hush.. i aint supposed to be seEN doin tis!

hmm.. *scanning around the room* its actually not hard pretending to be concentrating intensely at work huh? my brilliant tips for all: 1. try to stick ur face as close as possible to the monitor 2. perfect the look with a huge dose of face expression; like for example, narrowing ur eyebrows a lil’ bit or biting ur lips in frustration every so often. and, if you think all these doesnt still complete workin-ur-arse-off look, make sure you 3. slam your poor helpless mouse hard on ur desk a few times until sumone is staring at you disapprovingly. *4. repeat steps 1-3

*step 4 is strictly for attention-craving individuals only.

nahh.. i’m juz kidding. i’m sure all of you dun need such pathetic tips like these.. you are all a real pro at it!

GOSH.. i’m goin bonkers. I NEED A TIME-OUT!

speaking of the devil.

I read this in Cleo today (sept issue). And this is what they have to say about Ms Virgo this month. Of course, I always have my say. So, ready or not, here goes:

Cleo says:
You are --> You and your sense of style are cool, calm and collected. As you treat your body like a temple, you usually look drop-dead gorgeous. Your strong ethics and organizational skills bring success and acclaim, and as a friend you’re giving and soothing.

ChristinE says:
Reaaaally.. I couldn’t stop laughing at first! I think my style is safe, simple and comfortable. And of course I treat my body like a temple. Just blardy look at my size! I will never starve myself. I love indulging in good food. And look what i've gotten myself into!! haha I bumped into someone I have not met in 4 years yesterday; and he commented that I have gotten very fat over the years! Gee, I couldn’t have felt better. (sob!!!) Well, at least I have not gotten so fat till I am not recognizable. Gosh, people can be so harsh nowadays.. wahahaha!!! Oh, I am organized alright. And I am learning to be a more giving person. I know I am not.

Cleo says:
You are wonderful because --> You love to help out, have a practical approach and intuitively avoid dramas. Being the virgin maiden, simple pleasures make you happy but they still have to be the best. You’re easy-going but when things are important, you will vice your opinions.

ChristinE says:
I would love to help out without getting into trouble. But how is that possible? Haha! I absolutely hate dramas though. I am a simple person, I love simple pleasures; nothing to do with being the virgin maiden *roll eyes* Yes, I can live with anything, or at least, I will try. I only voice out when I absolutely have to.

Cleo says:
You’re impossible because --> As everything has to be super-clean and fresh, you can be a fussy eater and will complain if there’s the slightest thing wrong! Something out of place can have you in frenzy, criticism comes easily and you often think you’re the most perfect person there is.

ChristinE says:
I know I can never be perfect.

Cleo says:
Love match --> He needs to be a gentleman with good manners while knowing how to be a real man! A sweet smell and crisp white shirt will melt your heart faster than a grimy tee will turn it to stone. He needs to enjoy quiet times as much as partying and have his life together.

ChristinE says:
This is interesting. Baby, are you taking note? haha!!

I have always read all these horoscopes in magazines and in the papers for fun. But I never take them seriously. I believe I shape my own life.. haha! Now, don’t tell me you do believe in every single word and worship it! You will have a miserable life aitelyou..

love at first bag.

wow!!! it’s been ancient years since i last blogged! lb has been scolding dy.. *broken promises* wor.. sob sob =( i hope you guys miss me..haha okay okay.. i dun exactly wanna know the truth now. truths are often not pretty..haha! i know i suck at writing.. *stealing glances at juls* =P

so, what exactly has happened since the i-love-singapore trip? OoOOOoo.. a lot. reaAlly. apart from recovering from a burnt hole in my wallet (i shall post what i bought in spore =P), i’ve attended two convos in two weeks straight (notice the hole is even biGGer now!). i have never bought so many flowers in my whole life. but heck, its for my very own sister, my cousin brother, and my mmu dearies. happy graduation folks!!! its time to kick asses out there in the workin' world!!

this year’s mmu convo is a blast cuz it was held at the newly built convocation hall in cyberjaya. dammit, mine was held in malacca in a rented dewan seri negeri or something. the place was waaaaay smaller and there were hardly any shades for families to sit and wait. come to think of it, i think i've stayed around longer for my friends’ convo rather than my own. i still remember how unbearably hot the weather was, i was totally soaked with sweat. i guess the same goes for everybody in robes huh? yea, you try that under the blaring hot sun with a long sleeved shirt and long black pants underneath. not forgetting i was running around with two bouquets in my arms and a digital camera, looking for my mates to take pictures! i couldnt feel my hands after! i wanna graduate in winter somewhere out of malaysia next time can? haha well, i guess my point is….. i hav such great feelings to be done and out of mmu now! muahahhaahahha *continuous evil laughs*

and then... there was this ex-xmers reunion in honor of hazim’s ‘farewell’ party. dude, you’ve had too many farewells doncha think? muahahhaha i guess i’ve surprised many by turning up with a date at tsb (telanjang street bistro) last week. yesss.. i have been dating. but i aint telling nothing here.. muahaha!! spoiler huh? noE. the truth is, i’ve been pretty disappointed by the rumors that some meanies are spreading. i mean, do you really have a problem with me dating? i don’t even care about what you think. keep your opinions to yourself. who do you think you are to say anything about my personal life anyway? just do me a favor and stop harassing us. you suck. get a life yourself and be gone! (*note to self: there really are such meanies in this wonderful world. unbelievable.)

on september 3rd, 2006, i had the most incredible 23rd birthday ever! thankyou dear, for the awesome dinner at kampachi, the soft toy, the personalized card, and the amazing bouquet!! what can i say about you? you totally got me speechless. i am very touched by all your efforts. love you heaps!

and to all my darlings out there, thankyou for your warm wishes, dinners and the big fat hugs. you know who you are.. you guys rock my world!! muaakss!! where’s my autographed kangta & vanness cd now babe??? *spotting an unidentified object flying all the way frm cheras now* muahahhahah.. cheers everyone!

many hugs and kisses.

sucky mucky wucky!

it could have been a great weekend if there weren’t so many things bugging me mind. i have stayed in kl this week. so i couldnt hide in my room and blast the music =(

i’ve watched like, four dvds on friday nite and saturday. i’ve read non-stop. i’ve reorganized my wardrobe. i’d done everything possible to stop myself from thinking alone. hmmm.. maybe i should have gone to my stylist and redo my haircolor. that could kill three hours! i also went shopping at 1U today. look what i bought in less than two freaking hours!

a bit toooo green huh? and i only went in to like, four different shops! i had to stop myself from walking into Zara after that. i’m afraid i might just buy everything in my size. so, its true isn’t it? i’ve completely lost my mind!

i’ve finally tried the food at the Dragon-i restaurant today. well, i have to say, the food here is slightly better than the Jade Crystal (sister restaurant) in Lot 10. you’ll know after you taste the difference in their siu long paus *winks*


i couldn’t help feeling weird. i couldn’t help feeling helpless. and i knoe i cant lie to myself all the time. but i really don’t know what i can do. i’ve never imagined myself to be in this kinda situation. things like this does not happen to me. but it did. and it sucks. big time!! it feels wrong you know. it aint right. but sometimes, i sort of feel like telling myself to just give it in.. to just fucked it u know? screw what people might think of me. there's no reason i'm gonna deny myself a few laughters. no one tells me what’s right or wrong. it’s my call. arghh.. someone, pleaaase get me outta this!

i wish be an ostrich. i wanna hide in the dirt can?
