This Made My Day!

My intention to go to Times Square to terminate my Umobile broadband no later than 12pm today was hindered when I saw an unexpected comment on my FB wall timeline (that's what they call it nowadays) from an unexpected person this morning. It was ALONG, the frontman of the notoriously legendary, awesome, fabulous, excellent, brilliant rock n roll geniuses, ZIP ZIELLER!!!! Omaigodddd I was soooooo stoked that I ran like a mad woman who just lost her daughter to my room for no reason and ran back to the spot where I usually work with my old lappy. I was so excited!!! :D (hey, I have a crush on all of them okay, gimme a break! :P). From one comment to another and another and another until it reached a total of 49 comments :D. I really thought that it was never going to end because we went on and on and on and on about our current favourite songs and about Zip Zieller's latest EP, Bersih 0.1/5 as well as their progress. Of course, I didn't want it to end, but I was kinda glad that the conversation was finally over because I really had to go out anyway. (I guess I turned him off with my last question though. Stupid stupid stupid!) Hee, when I showed my overreacting enthusiasm, he said "hahahahaha....pape tah dohhh...aku orang gak cer ?" Oh Along, you may not realise this, but you are not JUST a human being to me (and I believe to thousands of other people as well). You're a GOD (READ: DEWA), a ROCK n ROLL GOD!!! I worship you guys!!!! :D As an avid fan/follower cum stalker of Zip Zieller, I really feel appreciated. It's like, it's worth it. I love them even more now. I may not have gone to all of their shows/gigs, but I consider myself a die-hard fan because I have ALL their EPs and I have been loyal to them since 2008 and I will always be! I even suggested to a gig organiser in Ipoh once to invite Zip Zieller to play! And they DID get invited, and they DID play, and I DID go. I really really really regret not going to their recent gigs, because... Along told me that their last appearance as a band is going to be this end of year, where they will be doing their last show, besides selling their last complete CD as well as an LP. That means, I am never going to see them perform again after that!!!! EVER!!! Huwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa sedihnyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!! :(( I'm gonna be there no matter what happens!!! I'll be there ZZ!!!! I PROMISE!!! Isk isk isk. I'm gonna toss aside my shyness and I'm gonna take photos with them, I'm gonna shake their hands, I'm gonna ask for their signatures, I don't care!! I WILL!!

In short, this day will be one of the best days in my life (although it also came with the sad news), because I'm never gonna get over this. It made me smile all day today. :D I may be overreacting, but, who cares? Zip Zieller is like my Malaysian Rolling Stones y'know. To Along, you might not be aware of how much this means to me. You really did make my day. Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. :)

Oh ya, to those who are stalking reading this, if you are interested to buy Zip Zieller's latest EP, please contact Manager Kemat Hassan (lol) a.k.a Bard at +60122102814. Or you can just go to their Facebook page by clicking here (which means you still have to contact Bard in the end bahaha). I promise you, you won't regret it!

The Chronology of My Tragic Relationships

Rizal (2001 - 2007)
Story: I broke up with him for Nasik. I fell out of love with him long before. Maybe it wasn't even love. I was young. He was the nicest and kindest guy I've known in my life so far. A very obsessive possessive man though.

Nasik (2007 - 2010)
Story: He cheated on me his girlfriend with me for many years. I found it out on the day that I turned 25 years and 1 day old. I thought he was worth it. I thought he was really the one.

Ally (almost)
Story: We have so many things in common, which was part of the charm. But all we ever did was hurting each other's feelings. There were lots of miscommunication and misunderstanding. It was over before it even began. And then he fell in love with another girl. Pfft. We are currently trying to "save" the friendship though (after months of silence, mainly because, y'know, ah whatever). He's 3 years my junior.

Nasik AGAIN (mid-2011 - early 2012)
Story: Well, I guess you can guess what happened.

Current status: Enjoying the luxury of being single and not looking. At all.

My Ramadhan 2012

Today is the second day of Ramadhan 2012. Spent my 1st and 2nd Ramadhan in Faezah's hometown, Batu Pahat. Going back to Serdang tomorrow morning after dawn. Well, I did nothing much yesterday and today. Went to the market with Faezah and her mom, watched TV, napped, played The Sims Social, (solat fardhu in between), and just waiting for sungkai time. Such a waste huh. Well, apart from helping Faezah's mom to kopek ikan bilis, there's nothing I can really do anyway. Nevertheless, I hope this year's Ramadhan will be more meaningful to me, and I hope I can fulfill my responsibilities as a Muslimah better. InsyaAllah.

Yesterday and Today

Yesterday, I went karaokeing with He Who Cannot Be Named (no, not Lord Voldemort) at Song Box Entertainment, AU2 Jusco, Setiawangsa. 3 hours. Despite the sucky sound system, I had fun as I got to sing the songs that I like. Here are the videos of the songs that I sang yesterday (not necessarily in this order). Thanks Groupon!


As for today, I went to watch The Amazing Spider-Man at The Mines. Yes, alone. Fatin said the movie "tidak siuk", buttt... it was okay for me. I enjoyed it. It's between 3 and 4 stars, so I'm gonna give it 3.5 stars or maybe 3.98, because of Andrew Garfield! :P  I promised to myself not to buy anything, butttt.... How can you not buy this and this at only RM39.90 RM9.90 each??? Apart from that, I also bought a new memory card reader. I'm gonna return the broken one that I bought from Low Yat and ask for a refund. What a fuckin' ripoff! I don't care if the shop has the "Items sold are non-refundable and non-returnable bla bla bla bullshit" policy! If you don't want people to return your stuff or ask for a refund then stop selling JUNKS that deserve to be in the rubbish and/or recycling bin!! This was not my first time buying a non-functional item from the shop (I couldn't bother to check the shop's name on the receipt pfft). Only a few months before, I bought a RM10 computer vacuum and went home happily only to find out that the thing didn't (and still doesn't) work. Pfft. Well, at least the detachable broom is useful. *rolls eyes* (Bah sepa suruh juga kan suda tau tu kedai selalu jual barang2 rosak mau juga masih pi beli sana. Baru tau.)

Magazines, CDs, DVDs, and a book that I bought recently
My almost RM36 lunch at Pizza San Francisco sucked. I was disappointed even by the look of the seafood pizza that I ordered. The cold chocolate beverage was a joke. Bottom line is, I am never ever going to Pizza San Francisco again!!! 

No mushroom soup, no nothing, and on top of that, the pizza was burnt. Pfft.
In spite of all that, I enjoyed my weekend! And next weekend is going to be Ramadhan! *excited* :D

Top 10 Reasons Why I Prefer Going to the Movies Alone

  1. I only have to pay for myself
  2. I get to choose whatever movie I wanna watch
  3. I don't have to watch animations and my companion(s) don't have to watch horror or Twilight
  4. I get to choose when and where I wanna watch the movie according to my own convenience
  5. I enjoy my own company (better)
  6. I don't have to watch a movie which I knew I will only end up pretending to like just for the sake of being nice to my companion(s)
  7. I can watch a lame Malay horror movie and get away with it
  8. I can watch a lame Malay non-horror movie and get away with it (you know that I'm kidding right?)
  9. I can have the popcorn all to myself
  10. I won't have to worry about bothering my companion(s) or other people in the hall because when I go to the movies with someone else, I have a tendency to talk to the screen and people will "Shhh" or "Shut up!" me or move a little bit away from me so that they can enjoy the movie better and this is NEVER the case when I watch a movie alone (because I never talk to the screen when I go to the movies alone, but when I do talk to the screen, it's not like I do it too loud or too often or non-stop all the way from the beginning to the end of the movie anyway. I'm just too absorbed sometimes.)

And hell yeah, these are whys I'd rather go to the movies alone.

This Song From Weezer Always Gives Me Goosebumps (in a good way)

Back in 1991, I wasn't havin' any fun,
'Til my roommate said, "C'mon on and put a brand new record on"
Had a baby on it, he was naked on it
Then I heard the chords that broke the chains I had upon me

- Heart Songs by Weezer -
