The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was a good read. It made my heart skip a few beats as I flipped the pages. Stieg Larsson has a vivid imagination on story telling and his characters just casually leaps of the page. The girl with the dragon tattoo is such a compelling character suffering from social ills and how she uses her sources to solve a mystery is just jaw dropping.

It is about a murder on an island, some years ago, where a journalist is called to help solve a case which appeared to be unbreakable. The girl is the grand daughter of one of the most famous financial figures in Sweden, and he suspects that a member of his family was responsible for the death of her grand daughter. The journalist with the help of the girl with the dragon tattoo takes on the case from different points of view and what they find was simply staggering.

I was so hooked on the book that I just had to get the second part of the three part trilogy. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl who Played with Fire and The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest are the titles.


They even turned the books into movies. But unfortunately, it is in Swedish. I'm currently looking for the DVD or the torrent online, but I can't seem to find a functioning one. It got good reviews from the international media so this makes it the movie that I have to watch, one way or another. Why is it so difficult to get foreign language films to play in Malaysia? Essh. Moronic.

They are also making a remake of the movie in English. And who stars in it? Daniel Craig! Woo hoo. I think that was perfect casting for the part of the journalist. Can't wait, can't wait!

Busy La

Listening to: The Brown Eyed Girls, Abracadabra

Orgasmic sial this song.

Sorry for the lack of updates. Been busy with...... stuff.

Have been having writer's block as well. Every time I start on a post, I end up leaving it hanging and I just forget about it. Three times this happened. Gah!

My sister was here from Australia for two weeks. Been having so much fun with her. If you're an avid stalker of my Facebook page then you'll see all the crazy pictures. My picture on my blog being one of them. All we did was go out, eat, shop, sleep. I think I gained 5 Kilos from those two weeks alone. Missed her a lot and it was really good having her around. Just to talk and do stupid things. Felt a little down when she left, but it's okay, cause I'll definitely be seeing her again.

I've already come up with my education plan, but I haven't exactly executed it yet. Starting my Canadian International Matriculation Program (CIMP) in Sunway University College this coming January and also planning to take three SPM papers at the year end of 2011. Most of you think that I'm crazy or just clearly wasting my time. But this battle is one that I HAVE to do. It's a personal vendetta against everything and everyone. I want to be able to do a medical course and the only way that's going to happen if I go all out in the coming year and more.

From a friend via Facebook: Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the worst failure.

Been having a tough time with money. Need a job. Or I need to be really good in poker ;)

Will

People deserve a second chance. Don't they?

So I messed up my life once before. Who's to say that I'm going down that same path again?

I will to be different. I will for a change.

But sometimes the world doesn't see that will and leaves you in a void. A helpless one at that.

But I'm still here. I'm still persevering.

I will succeed.

Die, the people who think otherwise.

Sheesh. I'm a sadist.

I need a new job people. Anyone know where I can strip for a living?

Kelantan and Celebrities

I got offered a place in University Malaysia Kelantan for Applied Science.

I don't want to go. But my parents seem to think otherwise.

So what happened to all the running around for Medicine? Am I just leaving it all behind and giving in to my parents and do what they want me to do?

If Medicine was never in the picture, I still wouldn't agree to this course.

They say it's a good program. It has many job opportunities. This. That.

Bottom line is, I don't want to do it. I don't get which part of that they don't understand.

It has been a little confusing on my end and I decided to give them an ultimatum.

If I'm not doing Medicine, I am not going anywhere near Applied Science and I am just going to settle for Mass Communication.

LOL. A bit harsh, but screw it. I can't be troubling myself and them any longer. So it's crunch time.

Oh, yeah. I joined Celebrity Fitness last week. Can't wait for the outlet to open and start to gym! Another reason not to go to Kelantan!

Harry Potter Pawns the Twilight Saga

What is the big hoop-la about the Twilight Saga?

What is it that makes this series to die for? Why does it make girls swoon and drool like cavemen? And why does it just make guys want to barf?

I've read Twilight, New Moon and I couldn't bring myself to complete Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.

I've watched the movies. For society's sake.

Reading the books. I felt like ramming my head into a brick wall. I might have actually done it. Seriously.

I can't get into the whole hype. I despise the books and felt like barfing out my innards through out the movie.

I think I know why I hate this series so much. For me, there wasn't enough realism. To be honest, there was no realism in it at all.

Don't get me wrong. I'm a fantasy geek. Sort-of. When I first heard that it was about werewolves and vampires, I was head over heels. But as I was getting into the middle of Twilight, I realised it wasn't your typical werewolf and vampire story. It turned into this icky soft-porn between a vampire who's always in pain and a girl who has not much more emotions than a plank and a boy who turns into a wolf when he's pretty much angry.

And that's when the whole thing started becoming fake. The ickyness was just too much to bear. There were too many barf moments. And as the story grew, the love triangle between girl, vampire and werewolf was just too stupid to comprehend.

Plank-girl and vampire-who-sparkles-in-the-sun fall in love. Evil vampire want's to suck plank-girl's blood. Vampire-who-sparkles-in-the-sun kills evil vampire. Evil vampire's hot chick want's to kill plank-girl for revenge. Vampire-who-sparkles-in-the-sun leaves plank-girl in the friggin' woods for endangering her. Plank-girl becomes depressed. Wolf-boy steps in to look after plank-girl and falls in love with her. Plank-girl becomes confused but still loves vampire-who-sparkles-in-the-sun. Vampire-who-sparkles-in-the-sun returns and falls in love with plank-girl while wolf-boy is jealous. Evil vampire's hot chick returns with army vampires to kill plank-girl. Wolf-boy and vampire-who-sparkles-in-the-sun join forces and kill them all. Wolf-boy still madly in love with plank-girl. Plank-girl loves both of them, but vampire-who-sparkles-in-the-sun more. Wolf-boy hurt. The two want to get married.

That's up till Eclipse. From what I hear, in Breaking Dawn, plank-girl gets married to vampire-who-sparkles-in-the-sun and transforms her into vampire-plank-girl-who-sparkles-in-the-sun. So now, they sparkle together in the sun (woop-dee-doo). Oh, she gets preggo with vampire-plank-babies-that-sparkle-in-the-sun too.

The story lost every ounce of realism in it's ridiculous ickyness.

If you're going to compare it to another fantasy novel, say the Harry Potter series. I would take that any time.

I went head over heels for the Harry Potter series when I first read it.

For one, J.K Rowling's style of writing was amazing and she kept me reading through every page without me almost never putting the book down.

Another, perhaps, is that most of the characters in the series were created to be around the same age as I was when I started reading them. A sense of connection between me and the characters were established through out the series.

I think the most important bit of the Harry Potter series was the realism involved in it. Putting aside the magical aspect of the book, it deals with real problems such as losing one's parents, fear, hope, struggles, friendship, bravery, revenge, growing up, actual hormones, actual love, choosing from what is right and wrong, good and bad, etc.

Growing up with these characters and with the sense of realism in the series makes Harry Potter one of the best series of books that I have read in my 20 years of life. And that is what makes a series unique.

The Twilight Saga? Please. It's rubbish. It just gave me massive head aches. Massive.

People say, you've not read the books, don't judge. I read, well, most of the books, and I hate what I found.

So to people out there who love the Twilight Saga, I respect your delusional mind and decisions, but................

Harry Potter PAWNS the Twilight Saga :D

Someone should really consider killing Stepahnie Meyer.

No, really, someone should actually kill her.

Running Around

To quote a friend: It's easier when there is only one option.

I couldn't agree more.

Let me just speed you up a bit. I was about to do CIMP. Then I discovered that I have take some SPM papers again. Then I found out that SPM registrations are closed. Then I got offered AIMST. Then I was confused. Then I went to Putrajaya. Then I don't know if I'm going to AIMST. Went to the British Council to ask about O Levels. And now, I'm going back to Putrajaya with an appeal letter to sit for my SPM examinations this year.

I've been doing so much of running around lately, that I don't know if all of it was worth anything. It's tough being at such an important cross road in my life. It's difficult to choose from what's hard and easy, convenient an inconvenient.

I didn't know it was this hard to be a doctor. I mean, I knew it was hard in med school, but I didn't expect it to be this hard to get into a med school.

I'm about to be doing another foundation and that doesn't bother me too much. But what does is the fact that my SPM has a blocking factor of what I want to achieve in life. The education system has tightened up like a virgin's ass. It's difficult to do the things you want. It's just difficult. Difficult.

Need to send my appeal letter today and I'm just hoping for the best. Should I start studying now? Maybe I should. Help in Physics. Anyone?

So friggin' dead on the inside.

This Is It

I finally watched Michael Jackson's This Is It since it's release last year.

I remember all those years ago when he was down. It was the biggest thing that could have happened at that time. I remember wanting to go for his concert. People kept telling me I was too young to go for one.

How I envied my cousin and my sister. Still do sometimes.

Watching This Is It was the closest thing I was going to get to watching Michael Jackson perform, even if it was just the rehearsals. He still has it.

How I regret not being able to watch him perform live.

I can see it. The moonwalks. The infamous crotch grabs. His high pitched, shrilling WOOH!

But most of all, his songs. That have made him a world wide phenomenon.

Black or White. Billie Jean. Thriller. Beat It. Man in the Mirror. The Earth Song. Just to name a few of my favourites.

I remember hearing the news of his death. It nearly brought news of my own. I was driving when I heard it and I nearly crashed into another car. I was shocked and bewildered.

Watching This Is It nearly brought me to tears.

The King of Pop is gone. But he has and will forever be the one and only King of Pop. Through his music, he will live on.

Michael Jackson. Forever.

Friends

Just got off the phone with one of my friends and we were talking for quite some time. About things that were, things that are, and things that are about to be discovered.

It's funny, how talking to a friend can just make you forget all your troubles and for that moment in time, you are just one perfect person with no worries what so ever. The loud sounds of laughter acquired through many of the conversations and the mere sound of their voice just brings you to a better place, where your nerve-wrecking problems just melts away into this unimportant goo.

It just made me understand that there are people in the world that love you so much, that nothing else matters but their love. I don't mean the icky kind of love that Bella and Edward have, just love in general. Because besides your family, the closest of your friends will be there, no matter how far the gap that separates them from you.

My friends have been dear to me. They may not be perfect, but even with their flaws, they have managed to captivate me.

Although some have flaws beyond compare, they show their noble acts through means not as conventional as others, but still makes me wonder with awe, that they are here for me.

They are the most important things that I posses. And I begin to wonder how I would funtion without them. They are like my breath of air I take, their friendship fills my lungs each time I want to breathe.

Although I contradict my previous post, there is a better place in the world after all.

They are my loves, and I love them!

To those who have been there from the get-go:

Darshanaa
Michelle
Dinisha
Joel
Ron Nard
Ashwin
Thira
Jane
Radiance
Jin Li
Ravind
Karmen
Zhe Rei
Nirusha
Venga
Kalpanaa
Yeshotha
Kalai

and to a host of many other people, I cherish you with all my heart.

If I have missed out anyone that have been dear to me, please forgive me, to forget is the nature of man.
