Iconic Songs from Chinese Horror Movies

I’m a bit of a scaredy-cat by nature and one would have to pay me a lot to even watch a horror film in a movie theatre packed with people.  However, as a determined truth-seeker, I just can’t seem to keep myself from questioning the authenticity of certain urban legends…especially, if it’s related to music.  Yes, I attest that curiosity can kill a cat (but it did not tonight).  Tonight, I will present two songs – one is supposed to be cursed and another is just iconic as f**k.

Ingress Training & Food Meet with the Great Food Critic

The following post is another one of my whimsical mixed posts (food and game “review”), so readers’ discretion is advised. 😀

Recently, I got introduced to the game, Ingress, by Food Critic that ultimately confused the heck out of my mind for the past several days.  Thus, I was left with no choice but almost “pleaded” Food Critic for help to get me started (and thank goodness she has time today ^^).  Apparently, this game is essentially one that blends the virtual world and our reality with Google map technology.  There’s a whole epic story that comes along with this game with two opposing forces – the Enlightened and the Resistance.  However, it is basically a “get-to-know your local community” walking game (*Edit: Food Critic kindly corrected me and mentioned that this game is much more higher and bigger scale than a “local community” game…Well, I’m sorry for my level 2 noob ignorance @___@).

The logo of the game, Ingress. With Food Critic's help today, I have successfully levelled up in the game. So woohoo!

Music at Each Stage of Life – Eason Chan

I was over the moon when I found out that Eason Chan would be holding another concert in Vancouver this year.  I was totally hounding the computer screen as I waited for the clock to strike midnight so that I could get to the ticket pre-sale before anyone else.

I closed down the web browser at the very last minute, however, and gave up the thought of clicking on the “check-out” link which would have taken me to the Paypal screen.  At the very last minute, I remembered a couple of things: Continue reading

Love is…

Taking a breather from the LSAT prep and life’s mundane activities in general and picking up on where I have left off in my writing last time, I suddenly recalled my writer’s block with regards to the definition of “first love” (and I supposed “true love” too).  More specifically, I recalled a specific definition that I wished I could have flushed it away down the drain because it burned my eyes for an unnecessary long while.

Honestly, I did debate on whether I should revisit this topic because I might offend this gentleman who had kindly offered this “specific definition”…but then, I thought, “oh, what the heck.”  He’s probably far too busy to pay this blog a visit any time soon.  Yes, I know.  Extremely positive thinking for my own convenience.

Sunday Tofu

A successful food experiment would always make me smile like an idiot.

Who knew tofu can taste so good with kimchi and grapefruit honey marmalade?

Forgot to put the grapefruit marmalade here before I took the photo. Then, after I included the grapefruit marmalade, I got so immersed with eating that I forgot to take a photo.

It Takes Confidence to be Carefree

逍遙自在 (xiāo yáo zì zài), which roughly translates to “free and unfettered, being your own person wherever and whenever you are”.  Usually, whenever I practice calligraphy or penmanship, I tend to deliberately choose words or phrases that have meanings or lessons that I can learn from and to have it, hopefully, embedded in me by the end of the practice session.

With 逍遙自在, I learned that it actually takes a certain amount of confidence to be truly carefree…at least that’s what my somewhat shaky penmanship is telling me.

ugly penmanship that shows a lack of confidence makes me realize that being carefree needs a zing of confidence too.

The Love Cycle of a Ridiculous 20-Something

The love cycle of a particularly ridiculous 20-something.  Just need to get this out of the system so that I can finally study in peace, at least for the next couple of days…aka “Operation: Saving Rationality”.

Stage One:  Fall in love ridiculously fast like an idiot.  Yes, I chose this particular video, so that you may sing along with it. 🙂  – I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You.
