Play of the Mind

I had a bizarre dream/nightmare last night. I was still in Primary School and the most bizarre thing was one of my classmate, the one sitting next to me was my own niece! Dinnah who was half the age I am. Imagine even if I'm in Primary 6, she was still unborn then...
The story of the dream was at that day and age, children below the age of 16 are prohibited to have adult aka romantic feelings; even to artists or celebrities - if found out they will be carted off to the nearest psychiatric ward and labelled mentally unbalanced/ill. (Bwoh, Dinnah! ^_^ Baik jua it's only in my dream) There I was, after checking this blog and found several posts that I never wrote regarding infatuation over some girl named Noralinda (I racked my brain and couldnt remember if I had former classmate by that name). I was like - who broke into my blog??? My brother? Impossible - the english was too fluid, plus my brother writing jiwang poems?? Laughable! In that dream, I also had this habit of printing out my posts and putting it in a file - I check that file, and sure as rain there were printouts of that posts in the file.
I went to school and my brain was still buzzing, what the teacher was hammering about at the front went unheard. Was I losing my mind? Am I some kind of Schizo? (Haha... I dont think I know what a schizo is when I was in Primary School, only know one kind of craziness - just plain OG). So I went to the toilet to washed my face. My primary school bestfriend Rumaizah was in a class next to mine. When she saw I passed by her class on the way to the toilet, she went out also. In the toilet, she asked me If I'm feeling all right, answered I'm fine; just feeling nauseatic a bit. She was being sympathetic; pat my back, hand me a tissue.
By the time I went back to the class, a new period had started, the one taught by Cikgu Pg Hj Salleh, one of our strictest teacher (well, not the most strict - just the one who showed no favoritism...to me). Just before the teacher started to teach, Aminah (again another one of my Primary School bestfriend) walk to his desk and telling him about how I had this blog, and what I wrote on that blog. She snatched my notebook from my hands and showed him the written instruction how to access that blog. I was rendered speechless, surprised beyond words - lots of activity inside my brain; every thought going on at once. Aminah came to my table again and rummage my schoolbag. She found my blog's file and hand it over to the teacher. (What kind of idiot bring that file to school?) Satisfied with all her evidence, she went back to her seat.
Then Cikgu Pg Hj Salleh started questioning me:
PHS: Is it true, this is your blog?
Me: Yes, Sir. But...
PHS: Do you know this stuff is prohibited for kids your age and you could...
Me: Yes, I know sir. But I created that blog to write a review on tv dramas that I watched and books that I read. I thought it will helps me in my english and sharpen my composition skills (Hahaha...as if! I didnt check my grammar when I wrote and I dont care if anyone read it will understand or not). Those posts...the recent posts, I never wrote it, Sir.
PHS was flipping through the blog file and some magazine clippings (where the hell does this clippings come from?!)
PHS: So you never made this? (Showing a bookmark made from a picture of some male artist I dont know of)
Me: No, Sir! I did some before but I was wayyyyy over it now. It becomes boring. Sir, may I ask a question? (He nods for me to go ahead)
Me: How did Aminah know where to find the instruction to go to my blog in my notebook? And I'm not an idiot, even if I need reminders of my blog address or password, I'm not that stupid to wrote it in my school notebook. And the handwriting wasnt even mine! (His eyebrows come together, thinking hard. He's kinda slow here, that I need to pointed out that fact to him)
PHS: Aminah, bring your notebook here! (Heavy footed now, she come to the front with her notebook; obviously there's no CSI showing then, or else she could planted better evidence, one that doesnt pointed back at her)
The handwriting matched the instruction in my notebook. But still PHS keeps flipping through the pages. He found some glued-together pages and proceed to ripped them unglued. There in the hidden pages was written conversation between Aminah and some unknown accomplice. She asked him/her to try dig up some secrets from Dinnah that could get me in trouble but that person couldnt get Dinnah to say negative things about me except, I'm "udang yang akan jadi bubuk"?? I asked Dinnah who sat next to me what does that mean, but she just cover her face embarrased. Then, about three of my classmate came to the front and stand next to Aminah saying they helped her planting the evidence too after Rumaizah tells them about the blog.
I was really suprised and pissed off. Why did they hate me so? Its not a crime to be a teachers' pet when I didnt abuse it for my own benefit right? Was this what I think of them then (talam 2-muka; but I dont think so- childhood friendship was pure with no hidden agenda) or was this just a reflection of my present state of mind- don't trust anybody even your bestfriend. (See, at this stage in this dream I kinda know I'm dreaming). Rumaizah was called from the class next door and I was facing the culprits stand in a row in front of the class...Suddenly!
Knock! Knock! Are you awake? Argh! I was fighting to stay asleep. I wanna know what the punishment will be, I wanna see them get punished (hehe...vindictive). Another knock and the door pushed open, "Something wrong with my mobile..." The dream vanished and I am fully awake.

Breaking Dawn

I had the book in my possession for four days before finally brave myself to start reading it, I dont know why I'm kinda hesitant then when I was so fired up to know the ending before... Well, anyway I like the ending of these series (unlike Harry Potter, hmph!). The book was told from two perspective; Bella and Jacob and then back to Bella. I like it better when told from Jacob's perspective :) Not that I hate Bella as from the previous three books, here she seems more tolerable.
Anyway the ending Bella, Edward and Jacob get their happy ending. Though I'm not overly content with Jacob's happy ending. "Imprinting" somehow steal someone freedom of choice; willpower, but hey all in all, I dont think there's a very satisfying happy ending for Jacob; for him to simply fall in love with another girl without the 'soulmate' syndrome will make him a fickle man.
The questions lingering in my mind was about the wolves pack. After all the troubles were overcomes, they remained two separate packs? Because of his 'object of imprintment' Jacob abandon his early plans to leave his village and his former pack, right? So one pack would have Sam as their Alpha and the other Jacob? What would become of Leah? Will she remain bitter and feeling left-out? or wont she found her own soulmate also someday?
Hmm...wonder what children would a half-vampire and a werewolf have? Opps! There are not werewolves; but shape shifters lah...If not because of the 'confrontation' at the ending I would not notice the difference between werewolves and shape-shifters. Werewolves doesnt change into wolves by will, only when there's full moon and when they can infected someone to become like them by biting, while shape-shifter its in the genes and cannot be transfered to another.

Crazy For You (3)

What would you do if you fall in love with the person who caused the death of the person you were in love before? Even if its accidental, even if its unintentional; but the fact remains the same - he/she was the reason that your beloved's life was cut short. Even if you could forgive him/her, but would you be able to be with him/her with a clear conscience? would you be able to forget that 'fact'?
Suh Jin Young absorbed herself with work after her fiance was killed in road accident the day before their wedding day. Their bestfriend Hyun Chul went abroad and left her alone dealing with her own grief because he himself was in love with her. He was on the phone with his friend when his friend got hit. The last word he said to Hyun Chul was he knows about Hyun Chul feeling and he trust him...then the sound of BAM! He went back after 5 years, thinking he was cured of his feeling but just one look and all those 5-years effort was useless...

Kim Chae Jun cant get a stable work being an ex-convict, but Director Suh Jin Young give him a chance as an aviation mechanic. Then his childhood sweetheart Min Hee left him because she dont like to live in poverty. She knows that he's willing to work hard for her to get whatever it is she want. But that just it, not anybody had to work hard just to get a bigger tv. Min Hee was materialistic in a nice way, you could understand her frustration and ambition. Furthermore, it gives reason for Min Hee to let go of Chae Jun's hand first ^_^ Chae Jun was falling for the kind and baeutiful Jin Young and she was falling for the hard working, honest, charming, cheerful Chae Jun.
Then, they later found out it was Chae Jun who hit Jin Young's fiance. It didnt help their relationship either by the fact that Jin Young was living with her dead fiance's parents as if she really are their daughter-in-law. To not broken everyone hearts, she kinda broke up with Chae Jun and try to hate him and even wished that he got beaten to death. She no longer can hide from reality by using her working endlesssly. She cant forget Chae Jun. Was it worth it to make everyone happy by living in misery? Or would you be able to be happy when you know you had broken many hearts? Tough choice, but if I were her, they were not my real parents anyway...
Then there's Min Hee and Hyun Chul. Pityful Min Hee, its alright for her to see Chae Jun in pain because of her, but when it was because of another woman, she can's stand it. Pityful, Hyun Chul, happy to be married to the one he love knowing she's in love with another man.

My 19 Year Old Sister-in-Law (3)

Its been awhile since I post about my kdrama, partly because I was finishing off the Stephenie Meyer's New Moon and Eclipse and the other because I only got Vol.1 for Yi San...sigh! when will Vol.2 be available??????? When I watched the whole drama then I'll post something about it.....
After falling in love with Yoon Kye Sang in 'Who Are You', I simply wanna watch his other works, and since my niece had this drama ^-^ I'll just have to borrow from her. (Currently in the process of watching Crazy For You - looks promising!)

First of all this drama shouldnt be titled as such, since it told the story when she was 19 and 24 years old. It's about a 19 year old girl, Yoo Min who after the death of her mother when she was 4, was left/abandoned in a train by the two aunts who works at her mother's restaurant. She was later adopted by the couple who found her and later when her adopted father lost at sea and the adopted mother left for parts unknown, she alone take cares of her sick adopted brother, Kang Pyo. She didn't remember much of her childhood, she thought she was abandoned by her parents, so she wants to ask them, even if they are so poor, did they even try to take care of her? She took care of the sick Kang Pyo who don't have any blood relation to her- no matter how hard and trying it is- why couldnt they?

Because of her brother illness, she frequented the hospital Min Jae works at and had a crush on him for years and accidently when she was 19 she meets Seung Jae- the younger brother of Min Jae-who at the time was running away from home. To deter his mother effort to marry him to some socialite, Min Jae gets in an engagement contract with Yoo Min and they all end up living at Min Jae's house. The contract expire when his first love return back to him.

Unexpectedly, Seung Jae and Yoo Min are going to the same high school and those close encounters make him fall in love with her. But he hide it all inside, because he love his brother so much, who also began to develop tender feelings for Yoo Min

I was guessing it was 50-50 at first, which brother she end up with, but then there are more interaction between Seung Jae and Yoo Min rather than with Min Jae so its sorta tipped towards Seung Jae at the end. But the past started unraveling, so maybe she wont choose either brother.... See its their mother who left her on the train!
On the other hand, Yoo Min's father who got amnesia from a car accident when she was four is looking for her again after being told the truth by his father of his marriage and the daughter he never knew he had. He met Su Ji, Yoo Min's childhood friend (one of the aunts' daughter) who remembered him. She knew what her mother had done, so she covered it up by telling Yoo Min's father that her daughter was dead in an accident when she was 9 years old. Funnily enough he bought it, without needing further proof. Even if they dont have grave or they scattered the ashes away at sea or higher ground, don't they have death certifcates or something??? He later sort of treated Su Ji as his surrogate daughter. Not only Su Ji would lose so much if the trut was revealed, she was also in love with Seung Jae who regards her as a sister only...

Cast:

Jung Da Bin as Yoo Min
(DOB: 1980-Mar-04, Died: 2007-Feb-10)
According to police's primary investigation, Jeong death was suicide due to depression.
I didnt like her in this drama - too over, too fake. Then I found that she was no longer among the living. Feeling sad suddenly... Life, you'll never know when its your turn...

Kim Jae Won as Kang Min Jae (DOB: 1981-Feb-18)

Kim Min Hee as Choi Su Ji (DOB: 1982-Mar-01)
Yoon Kye Sang as Kang Seung Jae (DOB: 1978-Dec-20)
Hee...he was older than Kim Jae Won but he played the younger siblings. I thinks its in his smile so young and carefree...but it contrast with his sad eyes... Heehe...by the many pics I posted here, you can guess that he ranks among the top of my Kactors now, maybe even my no.2 ^_^
