There's No Fate Between Me and Pokemon!

Recently, another game console entered the lives of my brothers and I: a Sony PSP! My dad bought this as a gift for my youngest brother Hafiy for finally achieving greatness in his studies; getting the title 'Number Two' among his classmates. Hoooray for Hafiy! As the one who thought him, I was elated he achieved good grades (though I'm still dissapointed with his Mathematics). I was even more elated when my dad bought the PSP for him, since I could also 'share' the experience of playing a brand new console. Hehe...

But buying the PSP means one thing, my fate to play Pokemon games from a Nintendo handheld console is closed yet once again. It has always been my desire since primary school, to get a hold of a GameBoy and play Pokemon games at my own leisure. Since Pokemon games doesn't come in any other game consoles, it makes the title quite special in a way. Eventhough I get to play the game on the computer when I was much older, I just don't feel satisfied.

Perhaps it's time I should close my 'gamers heart' from hoping anymore Pokemon games in the future. When I have the money of my own, I'll make sure I'll open it once again! (guess I'm still not giving up...^^)

Well, it's not like I don't have any fate with Pokemon at all. I still watch its anime series, and i even collect its trading cards. I'm not that bothered not being able to play the game. Here are the updates for today! Finally found the lost manuscript, and I hope i won't have to lose it again. Take care readers~!

1. "Dwane VS The Enigma: #7" -
2. "Once Upon A Cherry Tree (Pt.2 of Ch.1) -

Reading an old Malay novel entitled 'Konserto Terakhir', there was one word that captured my attention and pondered what it was called in English. So, today's word is:

intermezzo (n) - a short piece of music

The spelling is quite unique, and this widens my vocabulary in music. Hope it helps you too! ^^

Science nowadays has reached interesting heights. Just now I was reading a National Geographic's magazine, and I came across an article regarding a biologists who determines the 'taste level' (how tasty it is) of frogs by licking them. That's right, the biologists herself licks the frog on the body! Talk about eccentric...haha, on other issues; the price of roti canai/teh tarik and nasi beriyani in Malaysia are reduced by 10 cents and 20 cents accordingly. This is to ensure that the price is the same for all stalls. Is it?

Being Busy Is Not Always Bad

My simple ways of getting busy is either I play a game for 2 hours straight, read at least 4 volumes of comic or write anything that piques my interest. I guess these activities are not as 'healthy' as it sounds, but it's not entirely bad as well. Sometimes, being busy with the things you like most can take your mind off the things that are troubling you; such as problems at work, at school or at home. Ease up the pressure inside for a while, and get back to solve you problems calmly and efficiently (leaving them unintended is a pretty bad situation).

Getting busy is negative when you neglect others around you. "I'm busy working, so I don't have any time for my kids." or "I'm busy playing games, so I can't do my chores." are just a few of the sentences that could make a relationship go haywire. Unable to 'get busy' with others may lead to further problems you are running away from, thus making you even more pressured than before.

So readers, don't just get busy doing your own things; but get busy mingling and caring for those who are important as well. Think positive, and there should be a way to settle the scores fairly.

I'm starting to sound like some kind of motivator or something. Haha, here are the updates for this time. A few things are bothering my mind, so I guess I'm going to get busy updating more often (hopefully...). ^^

1. "#06: In Search For Nana" -
2. "Shot! :: It Could Be..." -

Anyone who are fans of J-drama should definitely have heard of a drama entitled 'Hana Yori Dango' which was released with 2 seasons. And now, the story's own movie is finally up and running on movie screens nationwide! The story basically revolves around Makino Tsukushi, who is closely involved with a group of outrageously rich guys who calls themselves F4; Tsukasa Domyouji, Hanazawa Rui, Nishikado Soujiroh, and Mimasaka Akira (check wikipedia for more info).

In the movie, Domyouji is now Makino's boyfriend, and announces to the world that he will marry her soon (reminder: he is the head of a mega corporate group!). Domyouji's mother then gave Makino a tiara, The Smiling Venus, as a symbol for her to enter the family. This tiara is said to be worth at least 30 million dollars! Things began to get disastrous when suddenly, the tiara gets stolen and only the couple knows who took it. In order to save the marriage, both Domyouji and Makino must find the tiara, leading them to a testing adventure of love and friendship. Will they ever get married?

The movie is as interesting as its drama; packed with action, suspense, romance and values to ponder. Whenever the couple's relationship seems to be in a pinch, it always give a certain 'vibe' in my soul (and a 'churn' in my stomach). The plot is interesting, the twist magnificently manuevered. It's sad to know that this is the last title that the story is going to show, but all that begins must come to an end. Then an end gives rise to another beginning. Check this movie out on TGVs near you! ( Rating: 4.0 out of 5)
