Zound Plug technology

Earlier on my bus ride home from retreat I was talking about headphones and decided to search for varieties. UrbanEars has designed this innovative feature for their Plattan range headphones which allows a friend to plug their earphones / headphones into yours (literally) and listen to what you are listening to :)


Personally I don't really like Beats headphones / earphones - its too mainstream for me, but sure, they look great and sound great and I guess that's what everybody looks for :)

Photoblog updates

Do you all remember.. how I went to Daiso with Connie and was it.. Raymond or Kirsty? Forgot who tagged along with us.. D: Well I bought these false lashes from that time, and.. it was only today that I actually tried sticking them on! This was my first time ever trying false lashes before.. so hopefully it doesnt look too bad.. right? heres the result.. xD


I went accessory shopping about 1-2months ago but was too lazy to upload. Might as well now :) I really love the bracelet and long feather earring a lot, not so much the cuff, but mainly because I rarely put my hair behind my ears, so yeah.. looks cool though ):





Oh yeah! This one of the many photos I sent from my phone to my PC today and I wanted to share this with you all - a mint mentos bin from my church!! (and theres even more underneath!!) i dont know if the hotel we hold church at, supplies these mentos.. or if someone from church actually goes out.. and buys all of this.. O__O


And another photo.. from KuraKura across Market City! Funnily enough the restaurant right next to it is also called Kura.. (is there some sort of connection)? But the KuraKura logo looks different and I know that the many Kuras around the city, like the Dixon St one, all hold the same logo, so err.. totally dont know :S

Want these so much!


(bag)


(shirt in particular but also belt)

7 more days.. [edit]

till the giveaway ends! its been going for sooo freaking long, theres about 3000+ entries :S The more I participate in it, the more im reconsidering if its really worth it or not, because, well I don't know, I just want to win SOMETHING from a giveaway and this one wasn't even the best out there. But I thought, well, just try at least once in my life. I really do understand that people do not appreciate my 'consistent' effort for something so small, and aren't all that happy for me advertising it, but I did warn and apologise in advance, even before it started. Honestly, I would've posted about it everyday, but in respect for people not wanting junk on their newsfeed, I didn't.
I'm expecting that I won't win it, but it's always worth a try right?

At times like these, I always have to hold my tongue from talking back..

Music

Was playing around with Garage Band on my sister's mac and it's pretty cool, I wish I knew how to use it to the best of my ability, seems like my kind of thing lol

Oh and omgsh was listening to FFVII (7)'s game soundtrack and like every song brings me back to a certain scene in the game, its really interesting the impact that background music has when gaming xD

God I feel so ashamed

..something that could tear everything apart.
I don't know how you can let me off like this, much less let me do the same mistake over again. If ever I do it again, you really have the right to expose me to everyone - my family, friends and church.

Happy 24th Birthday Changmin!

I swear I tweeted about it the moment the I got up this morning but it didn't seem to go through :(
Hmm.. its nearly the next day, I wonder what he did to celebrate his birthday..




And this song is amazing but I bet it would be better with all of them in it :(


I miss all five of them together.

Dreamt about 3 things last night that I can surprisingly remember quite clearly:
- Received my lip balms in the mail and got 2 extras but they all were a mix, only two were the limited edition ones but I was okay with what I got
- Went to Bali with our school group and Lady and I were having hash brownies and I had more not because of the hash but because the brownies tasted really good :S
- Travelled really far from home in Jakarta to go the BEST church's Jakarta campus

I know, they all sound really random but seriously when have dreams ever made sense? LOL. I reckon anything you've thought about during the week (for even just one second) is usually brought up in the dream and a story is made up from it hahah.

GIF attempt #01

Most Tumblr GIF makers use Photoshop but since I kinda don't have that, I had to use Adobe Flash CS4 (Kirsty and Lady will know we're total pros at using this program now :D)

This is the result of my final product (click images for the animation):

It's so choppy right? =/ But this is what I gotta reduce it to, for tumblr :(


I have a totally new respect for tumblr GIF makers - this whole process is so time-consuming! And since this was my first time, I literally spent hours changing this and that just to get to this stage :S I made this not knowing GIFS are restricted to 256 bit colour (or something like that) so the very first result came out not pixelated or anything, but the colour was so ugly D: Anyhow I shall continue experimentation later xD

Senses

From time to time, I ask myself the odd question, "If I had to lose one of my senses, which one would it be?" And then I list all the things that are pleasing to the particular sense and can't decide in the end. It really does give me a sense of appreciation that I'm able to experience everyday things that another people may not.

Wonder Girls giveaway results

Nuuuuu all the winners were US residents! I swear I read no terms about having to be a US resident to enter.. Heaps of people are complaining too.. but then again, when I think about it, its only possible to watch it legally on cable TV if you're in America.. so.. I guess they had a point.. but still, they could have mentioned it!! =/

Already?

It's only my sister's third week of high school and she's already got detention for 10 mins LOL for not signing her planner.. -.-"
So tempted to watch so many movies / dramas / TV shows at the moment.. T~T

Wanna watch reruns of Shuffle! , K-ON and Hana Kimi (Japanese version).. and then I got Dream High to catch up on as well as Running Man xD
The look that miss Clancy gave me and Kirsty on Friday is still in my mind, and it wasn't the first time I've seen that look. SO, SO scary.. T____T If I'm right and she heard exactly what I said, she thinks I've only done half of my need while everyone is up to research.. Should I explain it to her to clear up misunderstandings or.. Ahh what to do.. =/

Health habits I need to take up

1. Avoid slouching
2. Reduce use of hot water when showering
3. Drink more water

Prank at Airport

My church friend was leaving for Indo this morning for a fortnight and I thought I'd keep him company :) I had a feeling it was his first time ever traveling alone, which gave me more reason to accompany him.. and i was right, it was actually his first time :O it must be pretty nerve wrecking for him, especially because he's not used to the whole process that Sydney airports use ><

The other reason why I wanted to go, was to prank him, and it was because after saying goodbye to him at the airport, I had to meet with a friend and give him back his PS3 which just happened to be in a luggage bag.. and thats when my genius idea of the prank came about =p At first when I tweeted him saying if I could accompany him, he was going 'sure' but didn't seem so convinced at my effort of wanting to do that. Yesterday, I told him 'i'll meet you at the airport with my luggage.. not kidding' and hey i really was telling the truth right?! xD

Anyway summing it up, I really, truly convinced him that I was traveling too, but to Canberra for 2 days, and that I didn't have to check in until 2-3 more hours! HIS REACTION WAS PRICELESS!! There was a hint of doubt here and there, but at times he really did believe my story. Although.. it did tumble a bit when he asked what I would be doing there and where i would be living, then he became slightly sus but kept saying 'i can't believe it.. really? REALLY?'

When we came to Customs, it was time to reveal all since I couldn't join him any further, and I finally showed him what was in my suitcase (the PS3) and explained my story. My mission was to leave a lasting impression on him before he left Sydney. Result? MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

OH YEAHHHHH.

..Really? :O


LOL no way, you serious? xD
yaaaaaaaaaay!
was so close to buying one today though hahah

Colourgenics Results


You are seeking an affectionate relationship, offering fulfilment and happiness. You are capable of powerful emotional enthusiasm. Deep down, you are a kind loving person, always helpful and willing to adapt yourself if necessary to realise the bond of affection that you desire. But you need the same consideration and understanding from others and it is this need that will sometimes hold you back... so let go, trust and you may pleasantly surprised at what happens.
You are working extremely hard trying to improve your image in the eyes of others. You are looking for acknowledgement from your peers and those who come into your sphere of influence. You want to be liked, not for what people think of you but for what you really are.
The situation at this time is one of considerable distress. You feel trapped and you are looking for some way out. You can find solace in the arms of someone who cares so long as there is no long-term emotional involvement.
You are being unduly influenced by the situation that is all around you. You do not like the feeling of loneliness and whatever it is that seems to separate you from others. You know that life can be wonderful and you are anxious to experience life in all its aspects, to live it to the full. You therefore resent any restriction or limitations that are being imposed on you and you insist on going it alone.
You wish to be left in peace... no more conflict and no more differences of opinion. In fact you just don't want to be involved in arguments of any shape or form. All you want is for 'them' to get on with it - and to leave you alone.

Speck

A company that specialises in making simple but modern looking iPhone, iPod, iPad, smartphone and macbook laptop cases ^^

I was lucky enough to get my iPod case for only $10 at a sale that EB Games had, the cases normally costs $30 :S But just for anyone interested, I dunno, looking at websites like these always get me feeling inspired haha :)

Caught?

I accidently left my new phone on the table around 6:45am thinking no one would see it.. and while preparing breakfast my mum came out!! I think she most definitely saw it.. I even think she saw the casing for it in my wardrobe.. because I open my wardrobe to see the box fully displayed! D: I hid it under a huge pile of clothes.. so im pretty sure my excuse for 'oh im borrowing my friend's spare phone for a few days' is officially not legit anymore if she asks me about it.. thankfully she hasnt yet but still.. T.T

Felt so sick within the past hour.. Woke up with a bad stomachache and it all came from there.. I started getting cold sweats, I wanted to throw up, I couldn't walk properly because I felt so dizzy.. I sat in front of the toilet for 5 minutes then tried getting up and walking to my room.. and when I did that, my ears started burning hot, and I completely lost my vision for around 7 seconds, and I'm not talking about regular grey coloured blur that I usually get when I stand up. It was literally black with thousands of white spots, and my eyes weren't even closed. I was so scared :( So I went back to the bathroom and got myself to throw up a couple of times.. 10 minutes pass and now I feel better. My stomach still hurts though and I just got a headache.. whew. This isn't the first time it's happened.. and so far this has been the most intense one :( Really hope it doesn't get worse..

Dancing in heels

How do kpop artists do that, especially when it has been raining on stage or water has been poured intentionally..? Like every second I watch, I'm so scared that they'll slip and hurt themself D:

Problems

All my sister does is drop ONE thing on the floor and its enough for my dad's anger to escalate to slamming doors, banging this and that.. WHAT. THE. HECK. I seriously don't understand what there is to be angry about. And an hour later, he's STILL carrying on.

Please calm down.

Courses I want to get into

Just like Janice previously posted, I would like to list my possibilities down :D
They are all based on the UAC 2011 Guide, so I guess ATAR cut-offs are subject to change this year.

UTS

Cross-Faculity
- B Science in Information Technology, B Arts in International Studies - 82.40
- B Medical Science, B Arts in International Studies - 92.00
- B Design in Interior and Spacial Design, B Arts in International Studies - 94.20
- B Design in Visual Communication, B Arts in International Studies - 97.35

All of the above are my ultimate dream choices, of course all with the cost of an extra high cut-off :(

- B Biomedical Science - 86.05
- B Medical Science - 90.00
- B Science in Information Technology, Diploma in Information Technology Professional Practice - 82.50
- B ICT Engineering (Computer Systems) - 85.00
- B ICT Engineering (Software) - 85.00
- B Design in Interior and Spacial Design - 88.25
- B Design in Visual Communication - 93.70

Choices for uni:
1. UTS (because they specialise in I.T and Design)
2. UNSW - all round good uni? and uni that I'm most familar with
3. USYD (not too familar with this uni though)
4. Macquarie University (haven't researched much about this uni yet though).. and its in North Ryde..  D: meh.. still not too bad..

I really need to attend open days this year due to my lack of knowledge on my uni choices :)

Well as you can see, my choices are VERY broad.. If I don't get into one, there's always 'this' or 'that' :) But I must aim to achieve a high 80s to mid 90s to actually qualify for majority of them.. Is that possible at the rate I'm going? lol.. Well I shouldn't give up now! There's still hope XD

I never mentioned this to anyone before, but design is actually not my top choice, science is :O I never bother mentioning it to anyone though, cause lets face it, I know my chances of actually getting into the course is really slim. I never get good marks in science.. :( But then when I look at these cut-offs, design is equally as hard to get into! -surprised-
