Two Can Keep A Secret If One Of Them Is Dead

This was meant to be posted before my PD post but the sea excites me. So I've been wanting to shout it out to the world that I had already passed my viva on 29th November. It went okay-lah. I didn’t expect to spend more than one hour for Q&A session! There were lots of questions, some I can answer and some I couldn’t. Not always on the technical part but more on general knowledge, which I have to know more than what is in my field. It was scary! Anyway, I'm so glad that it’s over and  now I can blog all I can! (look at me, how optimistic!)

So I’ve been spending some time watching this mesmerizing series, Pretty Little Liars. Watching it straight for a week from the very first episode of season one till this Halloween episode; which the production of PLL screw my happiness by leaving me hanging on the most awesome episode ever! And I could only watch the next episode on January 8th, 2013. And that’s about three weeks from now. Anyone feels my frustration here?

For those who had no idea what PLL is about, let me summarized it for you a little. Well, the story is about four girls (Aria Montgomery, Hanna Marin, Spencer Hastings and Emily); whose becomes friend because of Alison. Alison turns them from average to popular students; share a huge secret with each one of them to make them feels special. They follow her lead even though they knew she wasn’t necessarily the kind of girl everyone like. But then one night, Alison goes missing. No one knows what really happen to her. One year later, the girls begin receiving text messages from a mysterious person using the name "A" who threatens to expose their secrets. At first they think its Alison herself, but after the police found her body, the girls realize that someone else knows their secrets—including long-hidden ones they thought only Alison knew. Yes, it’s like I know what you did last summer meets the gossip girls – isn’t that thrilling? :DDD

I really love how that each characters have their own flaw. It’s like I couldn’t pick my favorite character at all. To be honest, I don’t think I could get along with Spencer in real life but her character is so quick and strong and honest, I just can’t hate her! She’s my favorite queen control! Hanna is actually a sweet girl to begin with. She’s actually the only one who was disturbed by all the bullies Alison done. And she’s a great friend (even though it could be her being stupid) for what she’s done for Lucas and Mona. Emily Field is the most beautiful girl. She reminds me a lot of Maya Karin. And I like Aria when she’s not spending time with Ezra. She can be funny sometimes. I just think that Aria’s storyline is getting boring - she keep going back and forth with her relationship with Ezra. I hope there’ll be something in store for us when PLL makes a comeback. (Warning: Spoiler ahead)

One of the Spencer's awesome moment :DD

But the most fun part is there's a bunch of hot guys always the speculations/theories about who is A (or in A’s team) after each episode. You’ll get suspicious on everyone, including the four girls because everyone is hiding something from someone. It shocked me to learn that Mona was behind this and now that it was revealed that a bunch of people might be working for A (A could be one person or a team) and Toby is part of Team A. But I refused to believe Toby is totally evil. I keep my eyes on Jason, Wren and even Ezra, heh. Those are on my A-list. The ending might not make any sense but so far, I love the plot.

Well, to those who have never watch PLL yet, you better watch now. You have a month to catch up with the series. Happy watching!

Sea, Sand & Sun

Another family gathering was being held at Teluk Kemang, Port Dickson on 8th November 2012. We stay at a bungalow near Bougainvillea Resort and the beach was just a walking distance away. Traffic was quite bad so we reached there quite late and only went to the beach the next morning.

I do not have any intention to get wet at first. I just wanted to sit peacefully by the beach and took some photos. But my cousins and nephews wanted to try a banana boat ride. I was reluctant at first because I’ve been on the ride too many times before. And I think I’m too old for this kind of thing. But of course me against six of them, who am I kidding?

Self-expression session :P

As soon as I got onto the banana, I get excited, haha. I purposely avoid taking the front sitting because being in the most front; you have a high chance to get high blood pressure - with all the water spalsh that gets into your mouth :DD 

The speed boat driver told us to let go of the grip and the rest of us was like, ‘Tak mau! Tak mau!’ And no matter how strong you tried to hold on to the boat, you’ll end up getting thrown in the water.  And then we had to get back on the boat and it was the hardest thing to do. Not because I do not have enough strength to pull myself up on the boat, and I refuse to believe that it was because of my weight but because I was laughing too much! We were thrown again near the shore and had to swim back to the beach.

Had too much fun - a good swim and playing water polo in the swimming pool, awesome barbeque, exciting banana boat ride. And most importantly, me spending times with beloved cousins and nephew!  

p/s: We just couldn't resist to do the Gagnam style pose (no matter how much I hate that song) :DDD
