2012 is right round the corner aaaaand for some reason I don't really care. Maybe because for the first time in 10 years, I do not have to go to school in the beginning of January.

The only thing I'm looking forward now for the rest of 2011 is seeing Siti Nurhaliza perform during the countdown on Channel 5 and keep whining about how fat she is. I even heard she wants to have a child. Gurl, by the time your kids are 16, their father will be 80. (slowly awaiting Siti fans to waste their electrisiti and flame me while putting on simplysiti cosmetics and sipping on pandan-flavoured ctea)

I think 2012 will be a very interesting year for me because I'll be attending a class chalet, working for the first time in my life and trying my best to not leave a bad impression on my boss when I ask him/her for leave the very first day I go to work.

2012 will also be the year when I will be starting my tertiary education in a polytechnic so I am also excited for that.

Since there is only around 1 day left in 2011, I decided to take some time out of my sad, lonely life and think back about what I have done in 2011.

Actually, it's not that many, but I had one of the best birthdays in my life, got promoted to a Warrant Officer in Red Cross, passed out a mere 1-2 months later afterwards, started reading a book that is not Harry Potter after a HP book marathon for the whole of 2010, achieved something from debating, tried dengdeng for the first time, getting the best results in my entire secondary school life for prelims, baked a fantastic cheesecake which EVERYBODY LOVED and still eating like a fat pig non-stop.

I guess it was a pretty fruitful year for someone with a sedentary lifestyle!

Don't really feel like blogging for the rest of the year i.e. tomorrow so this is probably the last post of 2011. Oh well! See you in 2012!




*that was a |c001 way of saying 2012

And that's it for 2011!!!

Also, the little announcement that I said I would make yesterday is that from 2012 onwards, I will only make collection updates once a year in December. The reason is because I am simply lazy. Joy to the world!!!

One month to go, furrealz

One month to go before my baby is born!!!


It is also one month to go before I am done and over with braces!





Tee nee nee. It's actually supposed to be white, but 1-2 days later I decided to eat curry the entire day thus resulting in this unfortunate colour.



He wanted to file my 2 front teeth as well because apparently they are "too long" but I personally think it looks just fine, so I told him not to.

I don't even want to say anything else because I am too excited about getting my braces out! I have to go back to see my orthodontist for 2 consecutive days, where 1 is to remove the braces and the next day to go collect my retainers.

Speaking of which he and many of his colleagues are also transferring to some new specialist centre being set up near Novena, so I'll have to go there next month, lol. Maybe I should get it done before my birthday.

In other news tomorrow I will be posting up my end of year collection update!! And a little announcement which is not very important so keep your pants on.

Not religious but celebrates Christmas. Awkwaaaard

Merry Christmas everybody!!!

I spent my Christmas being a total glutton eating a shit load of food and then feeling very disgusted by my actions shortly afterward.

But other than being a very gross person eating like nobody's business, I also had a fun time last night with my friends at Eva's place! Though most of the time I'm pretty much entertaining myself but that's not the point.

We played Monopoly which I won because everybody was too fed up landing on my properties with many houses and we also had this gift exchange where we each bring a present wrapped up, and not knowing whose is whose other than yourself, the winner of the game gets to pick a gift first, followed by the second etc.

So since I'm the first I chose Philana's present! The moment I touched the present, I immediately knew it was Ferrero Rocher. Nonetheless it's still one of the most expensive presents over there lol.

I was vacillating between Philana's and Adeline's present (which I did not know belonged to them beforehand) because they were the biggest presents.

Lucky for me, Adeline's present taken by Christel turned out to be 2 long stacks of Angry Birds tissue paper from Watsons with an additional body wash HAHAHAHA

My gift which was a mug that said "I LOVE MY ATTITUDE PROBLEM" (I feel like getting one myself) was taken by Desmond and Jiele got the best gift of all, which was $10 slutty stockings from Eva. Eva did it because she was hoping I would get it (Sweet mother of god)

I also got an Elton John CD from Philana because she wants me to "Come out of the closet" even though she is more familiar with his discography than I am.

Amongst other things, I also got a T-Shirt from Eva, a cute pouch from Jiele (with a Lady Gaga pin badge as well), a card from Christel and the best gift of all from Desmond, which was a mini Christmas tree from DAISO.

What... an amazing life I have.

Best of 2011 in J-Pop

It is almost the new year and this year in J-Pop has been very exciting. Just kidding, it was very boring.

With Ai Otsuka having fallen off the face of the Earth because of her baby and mihimaru GT slowly losing their relevancy, the only event that has been very happening in the second largest music industry in the world is AKB48 getting million-selling first week sales for every single they release, which I'm sure never fails to send Taylor Swift on a :o-face frenzy every time it happens.

In all seriousness, when it comes to the quality of music put out this year, I'd say it was pretty good, although the sales don't reflect all that. I decided to do this simply because I want to irritate 90% of all 10 of you.

Let's get this party started! *dances to myself*



Best Single of 2011




Koda Kumi - 4 TIMES

One of Kuu's best summer singles ever, which also happens to be her 50th single! There's nothing to dislike about this single, at least when the songs are concerned.

It pretty much comes in a complete package -- there is the fun song ie. Poppin' love cocktail (nothing says fun like singing about loving a younger man), the heartwarming mid-tempo song that is IN THE AIR, the pussy poppin' V.I.P. and of course, the song all you horny bastards wank to, KO-SO-KO-SO.

Not leaving out the icing on the cake which is the absolutely superfluous interludes that include the sound of pants being unzipped.

What really sealed the deal was that there's no cheesy, generic ballad in here! Oh my fucking god! Easily makes it one of Kuu's best singles ever, and I'm being serious.
Other good singles of 2011 include:
Namie Amuro - Sit! Stay! Wait! Down! / Love Story (came REALLY close to emerging top)
Namie Amuro - NAKED / Fight Together / Tempest
Perfume - Spice
Every Little Thing - MOON

Best Album of 2011




Koda Kumi - Dejavu

I absolutely love this album. I personally don't think there is a single bad song on there.

Even the worst song, Passing By, is average at best, and it's not even because the song is bad. It's just ruined by B Howard's vocals.

The interludes are at least tolerable and once again, there is no cheesy generic ballad, and neither is there a disgustingly cutesy song. (Bambi was nice OKAY)

For an album that spans 13 tracks excluding the interludes, I really have to give it to Kuu because it is almost one of her most flawless albums. Album photoshoot is good, album flow is great with more than enough songs for the album without compromising on quality.

Other good albums of 2011 include:
ayumi hamasaki - FIVE
Superfly - Mind Travel
Every Little Thing - ORDINARY
Kaela Kimura - 8EIGHT8
Perfume - JPN
Namie Amuro - Checkmate!

Best DVD of 2011





ayumi hamasaki - ayumi hamasaki Rock 'n' Roll Circus Tour FINAL ~7days Special~

Undoubtedly one of Ayu's best tours ever, and beats the 2009 tour by so much. My only grouse is that she removed certain songs that I really wanted to hear for the 7 days special, but other than that, the vocals, the outfits, the theatrics and the stage setting are just perfect. (okay, maybe not the vocals) I don't even know if HOTEL Love songs is going to be able to top this.

Other good DVDs of 2011 include:
Koda Kumi - KODA KUMI 10th Anniversary ~FANTASIA~ in TOKYO DOME
Utada Hikaru - WILD LIFE
(and possibly)  Namie Amuro - namie amuro LIVE STYLE 2011

Best Song of 2011




ayumi hamasaki - progress



Probably the best song Ayu released for 2011 from her album FIVE and everything about the song is just epic. From the arrangement to the inspirational lyrics, it pretty much shits all over every AKB48 song.

Other good songs of 2011 include:
ayumi hamasaki - Why... feat. JUNO
Koda Kumi - V.I.P.
Koda Kumi - POP DIVA
Namie Amuro - Wonder Woman feat. Anna Tsuchiya & AI
Namie Amuro - Love Story
Namie Amuro - Higher
Kaela Kimura - Make my day!
...and many more, but this list is getting a bit too long

Artist of the Year

I think this is very obvious and we can all agree to this.

SNSD



Just kidding.






Koda-fucking-Kumi.

She nailed 2010, and now she nailed 2011 as well.

With a stunning album, the number of good singles she's released this year and stunning live performances, Kuu still shows no signs of slowing down even after 11 years in the industry!

Not to mention she's also getting married and she's PREGNANT! Shotgun marriage but that's not the point! Kuu seems to be very happy about this and as long as she's happy, as her fan, I'm happy for her too!

She's so influential, even somebody in the SNSD picture copied her POP DIVA cover pose. (Go google it yourself)



aaand that's the best of 2011 in J-Pop! Admittedly this is probably the most biased post ever because I only review the artists that I listen to but THAT'S JUST TOO BAD NOW ISN'T IT.

1 2 3 4, Hi-5!




This blog is officially 5 years old!!! 

I am so not proud of myself!

Then again, I actually am because I feel like maintaining this blog that is still read by people is something that is not easily accomplished by many of my peers so I am very happy for this day to come!

So to celebrate this joyous occasion I even tried baking something slightly new which is the cheesecake I did last year with chocolate chip cookie crust! How low cal is that?

Just kidding, it just so happened it was done near this date.




As yellow as an Asian!

So what will I be doing on my blog's 5th anniversary?

I'll be having lunch with Jiarong and then delivering the cake I baked to people. And I'll probably rewatch the Sex and the City series again on DVD. This is called being pathetic, unemployed and loving it while I still can.

In other happy news I got the shock of my life when I saw my blog statistics because I managed to breach the 200 unique visitors mark this past week without pulling any promotional stunts! I feel so amazed.

Anyway thank you thank you to those who read this blog religiously like it's the bible and I hope I'll be able to celebrate my 10th anniversary!

When that day comes it would just mean that my life is just really sad and miserable. BUT STILL.

First world pains

I was craving for chee kueh today and went down to the shop beside Old Chang Kee at Jurong Point only to find out they don't sell it anymore.

 It's ridiculous how there is a demand for chee cheong fun and none for chee kueh. Who the hell eats the former without any prawn or char siew inside?

...I eventually bought that instead.

CDs of the month! (#23)

~Disclaimer disclaimer~
I won't be including the stuff I bought from the US in this post! I intend to show what I bought only when I blog about the trip itself! However, very soon, I will be contradicting myself because in the year-end collection update they will be in there. Whatevs.




Lady Gaga's Born This Way collection!

Which I ordered off Amazon, because I knew here, not only will I risk having it manufactured locally, but it would be more expensive and have an M18 sticker slapped on the back. True enough, true enough. But I had no intention of getting this at first until Amazon offered it at only USD25. Sounded like a great deal to me.



Comes packaged with the Monster Ball Tour, the Born This Way Remix album and the special edition of the album which I already have but who cares.

At first I thought it would come in a big and thick package (that's what she said) but it turns out that the box is the size of a normal jewel case and the thickness is of 3 really thin digipaks. (except the remix album which is only a cardboard sleeve)






(2011.11.02) Perfume - Spice (CD+DVD | Limited Edition)

A very pointless single by Perfume because the album would be released a mere 4 weeks later. Nonetheless I like both songs and the only issue I have with this release is that the styling of Nocchi's (left) hair is a crime against nature.

The PV for Spice is pretty lulz too






(2011.11.30) Perfume - JPN (CD+DVD | Limited Edition)

Perfume's third album as mentioned above which finally does not simply come in a jewel case. (Hey⊿hey)



At least Nocchi here has the hair that I have liked since the beginning. The album is pretty good too, I don't know why people are being so anal over it.


(2011.11.30) Koda Kumi - Love Me Back (CD+DVD)
(2011.11.30) Koda Kumi - Love Me Back (CD+Goods | Limited Edition)

Koda Kumi's latest single which is kind of pointless so I don't know why I even bought it and with 2 versions at that. The limited edition comes with a pouch that I don't think I will ever even use. This is why people look up to me as a role model when it comes to budgeting. :D


CD+Goods Limited Edition

Nonetheless this bitch is on a fucking roll because her 10th album is already coming out in Jan/Feb next year and the covers look FUCKING HOT. She's also filming a music video for all 17 tracks on the album just like Kingdom in 2008. She is ridiculous.

Also did you catch her performance on MAMA? DID YOU? FUCKING AMAAAAZIIIING. She's the queen of fucking live, seriously. I woke up at 4am in the US just to catch her performance live! It was worth waking up for it, although I was depressed that she was in Singapore when I wasn't.




DIAMONDS, AND SAPPHIRE, AND KUU, OH MY



The last CD for this month is something I just bought a few hours ago, which is



Florence + the Machine's Ceremonials!

Seriously, this album absolutely blew me away. Sounds like nothing I would have expected from an indie artist. Certainly provides some respite from the avalanche of electropop music that is all over the music industry now.

I tried finding this album in the US but the version that they have doesn't have all the bonus tracks, and we all know how OCD I am. The digipak here is thicker than the one in the US though, probably because this has two discs whereas the US only has one disc.


And this marks the end of the last CDotM for 2011!!! Full collection update will probably come at the end of the month so you can look forward to that.
