Shrek mania!

May 31, 2007

I ate the Shrek meal at McDonalds today.

It consists of a beef foldover(spicy) / chicken foldover + french fries + a shrek green drink which I still dont know what it is until  now.

I chose the chicken, my mom the beef. My bro went for happy meal as usual and got a talking-kicking-punching Fiona toy. Hehe!

Whats cool about this meal is the french fries. You get to put them into a plastic bag then add the seaweed flavouring and shake shake shake! Its a whole new taste but its a little too salty.

So I gains a million few calories, so what? Hehe! :)

And then there was none.

You’ll always be missed. *dong*

Skeleton Key

May 30, 2007

This book is AWESOME!!! I am so speechless! I love the Alex Rider series!! All of them are spectacular!!

Finally Alex gets a girlfriend! :) Yay! But I dont think the relationship will last very long. Hmmm…

Alex have two “fathers”. I was thinking what would have happen if he took in Sarov as his dad? That would be a nice story. I was so touched and surprised that Sarov killed himself for Alex… Awwww…

This book rocks!

Miss Universe 2007

May 29, 2007

Yay! My insticnts were right again! Lalaa… I rock at predicting pageant winners! Muahaha… Lets see… Miss Universe 2005, 2006 and now 2007! I’m on a roll. :)

Miss Japan is absolutely breathless.

Congratulations to Riyo Muri on being the next Miss Universe! She’s from Japan, and is really really pretty. She’s my fav to win since the start of the show. Though I would have want my own country in the top 15, but alas they never made it before. Haha.

This year more asian countries got into the top 15. India, Korea, Japan and Thailand made up the 4 of the 15. And now they have more attention to the other countries as well, such as Angola and Tanzania,who made it too. But the old favourites still remain: Brazil, Czech Republic, Venezuela etc. I was surprised Puerto Rico or Dominican Republic didnt made it this year.

Miss Tanzania, who was bald, made it into the top 15 and even top 10! She’s making the Aficans proud.

Miss Venezuela’s eyes are really lopsided and her face is flat. Haha. But she got 3rd.

Miss Korea, Honey Lee (no one forgets a name like that) got fourth. She’s quite okay.

Miss Brazil got 2nd. She’s really really pretty.

Miss USA, Rachel Smith, got 5th. I really pity this gal. She slipped and fell while walking the runway on the nightgown show. But the judges gave her way into the top 5 anyway. Yay to her!

Miss Japan, my fav! She looked stuning in her evening gown, and only hers was creative enough. The other gowns the other contestants wore were all flat and typical. But hers was extendable and she took the end of her dress and hold it up and ruled the runway. Yay Miss Japan!

Last year my fav was Miss Japan too, but then she only got 2nd, beaten by Miss Puerto Rico, pardon me in saying this, has bulging eyes and aint pretty at all. She looks very snobby and proud. Humph.

Anyway congrats to Miss Japan! The land of the rising sun rules.

Miss USA

May 29, 2007

Congratulations to Rachel Smith to be the next Miss USA!! She’s representing Tennessee. Frankly I would vote for Miss Rhode Island to win, but my insticnts say that this gal would win, and I was right. (as always!)

Rachel has that shine and freshness that makes her very likeable.

 Congrats again! See you in the Miss Universe pageant!

‘This Is My Now’

May 27, 2007

I LOVE THIS SONG. I prefer Jordin’s version over Blake’s version.

THIS IS MY NOW

There was a time I packed my dreams away
Living in a shell, hiding from myself.
There was a time when I was so afraid

I thought I’d reached the end.
Baby, that was then.
But I am made of more than my yesterdays.

This is my now,

And I am breathing in the moment.
As I look around,
I can’t believe the love I see.

My fear’s behind me,
Gone are the shadows and doubt.
That was then.
This is my now.

I had to decide.
Was I gonna play it safe?
Or look somewhere deep inside,
Try to turn the tide.
Find the strength to take that step of faith?

This is my now,

And I am breathing in the moment.
As I look around,
I can’t believe the love I see.

My fear’s behind me,
Gone are the shadows and doubt.
That was then.
This is my now.

I have a courage like never before, yeah.
I settled for less, but I’m ready for more.

Ready for more…

This is my now,
And I am breathing in the moment.
As I look around,
I can’t believe the love I see.

My fear’s behind me,
Gone are the shadows and doubt.
That was then.
This is my now,

And I am breathing in the moment.
As I look around,
I can’t believe the love I see.

My fear’s behind me,
Gone are the shadows and doubt.
That was then.

This is my now.
This is my now.

Congratulations Jordin!! American Idol Finale Pt.2

May 25, 2007

First of all, congrats to Jordin on winning AI6!! You deserve it Jordin!

Jordin is the youngest winner of AI.

First Blake and Jordin both started the show with ‘I Saw Her Standing There’. Awww. Blordin is so cute!

Then the screen turned to Gwen Stefani, who was at her concert and watching via satelite. She sang her new song ‘4 In The Morning’. I like that song! But the music video is pointless though.

Yay we get to see Kelly Clarkson on stage again! She sang her new single too, ‘Never Again’. She really can rock the stage! Love her music video too. )

Kelly singing ‘Never Again’.

Then was the 2nd annual Golden Idol Awards! First was ‘best presentation award’!! The winner was Mdm. Big Bird (I dont even remember her name!) Oh yea… Margaret Fowler. They were playing the sesame street theme song while showing her! Then she went up the stairs and kissed Ryan. Oooh poor Ryan… Her feathery yellow dress was ridiculous. But no doubt she was entertaining.

Then the top 6 guys performed a medley with Smokey Robinson (who?)  but I didnt care about the guy. I wanna see the guys. They shun Blake at the far corner though.

Thats Sligh, Chris R, Sanjaya, Smokey Robinson, Brandon, Phil and Blake.

Then Blake was beatboxing along with DougEFresh, whom I have no idea is. But Blake’s beatboxing is wayyyyy better than this guy’s.

Blake’s better than this guy. Seriously better.

The next award for Most Original Vocal to Sholandric Stallworth. Who dont deserves an award at all. He sang Silent Night and everyone jeered at him.

Then was the top 6 gals! They looked so stunning. Especially Gina! Love her. They sang a medley with Gladys Knight.

Then it was the contestant’s mentor, Tony Benett singing. The judges were on their feet while he sang. I dunno why. He’s just an old man. Oops! )

Then was the third award, ‘Best Buddies’. Simon and Ryan were nominated, along with Kenneth and Jonathan and Antonella and her friend. Yuck. I hate Antonella. Ring a bell? She’s the one posing nude on the internet. She disgusts me. Anyway, Rymon didnt win, but Kenneth and Jonathan. Kenneth was the one looking like Bushbaby and Jonathan the obese plump one.

Then this year’s number 3, the resident pro, Melinda Doolittle sang her heart out with Bebe and Cece Winnans. All three are backup singers. Well in Mindy Doo’s case, was a backup singer.

 

Melinda and gang.

After that, both Blake and Jordin were presented the car keys to their new Ford Mustang’s. Not fair! Haha. Kat and Taylor got cars last year too.

Carrie Underwood then took the stage and sang her hit song ‘I’ll Stand By You’. She sure have her own fashion style! She performed the song in Africa too in the ‘Idol Gives Back’ show.

Carrie singing pretty and looking great too.

Then she was awarded a gift from Clive Davis, an AI manager I think. She was awarded for her sales of her album.

Poor Chris and Phil. Carrie… They’re not there to do your dirty work. Just kidding. In  case you’re wondering, Chris and Phil are carrying her heavy award.

OOoh then one of my favourite parts! The African children choir, who sang at ‘Idol Gives Back’ was back and they sang an African song. It was very nice and very entertaining too! Those kids sure have talent!
Then it was Sanjaya back in action! It was really unfair cause other than the top 3, only he got an individual performance. Sanjaya, I like you. But I still hate you. And you make little girls cry. Youre evil. Even the big bird is crazy about you. What has the world got into? :) ‘YEAH! you really got me… you really got me…’ or should I sing ‘Lets give them something to talk about… other than HAIR… HAIR… HAIR!!!’ Yeah. The lyrics were love. Not hair. But it was intentionally sung by him when he was voted off the show. Yes Sanjaya, your hair will be the topic for centuries. I’m sure of that.

Sanjaya singing and Amanda, his no.1 fan, crying. AGAIN. Oh there’s big bird at the back.

Green Day performed on stage with their song to help charity.

Thats Billy Joe Armstrong, lead vocals.

And then Taylor Hicks came out singing and playing his harmonica, looking excatly the same like last year. His wardrobe doesnt has much changes…

Yup… Same old Taylor “Hickups” Hicks.

Then he, Carrie, Kelly and Ruben Studdard (AI2 winner, the teddy bear guy) sang and then all 4 of them sang with the top 12.

Looking for Sanjaya? He’s not in the picture.. Haha… Maybe Getty doesnt like him too. :) He’s at the far left, beside Chris and Chris. You can see his hand.

Then was the best moment of all.. The results show. Before the results were announced, Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell predicted that Jordin Sparks would win, while Paula Abdul refused to make a choice. Ryan Seacrest announced that after a world record 74 million votes that Jordin Sparks was the winner of American Idol 6. An emotional Jordin Sparks said “I can’t thank you for keeping me around, and thank you so much for everything.” Mom, Dad I love you! Nana Popa PJ, thank you!”

Jordin repeated her story about talking to Blake before Ryan annoucned she won. “I was standing there and Blake was holding my hand. He whispered to me, “I love you girl. Knock’em dead. If I forget the words, will you sing with me? I said, ‘Yah, as long as you sing with me if I forget’em!’ So we were kind of easing each other’s nerves. He calmed me down. I said, ‘Everything will be fine no matter what happens.’ (from Jay Leno)

Awww… Blordin is so cute. Then Ryan announced Jordin as the winner. Blake was a gentleman and was happy for her!! Jordin sang ‘This Is My Now’ which will be her new album’s first single.

Blake is such a gentleman. He’s so happy for Jordin.

Yay everyone is happy for Jordin! Except Stephanie though. She looks very glum. She’s at the far left. Haley, why are you biting your lip? Jordin you better be careful of them. :)

Congratulations to both Jordin and Blake!! I’ll be waiting for your albums. And Chris R’s!

American Idol Finale Pt.1

May 23, 2007

WOW! I love tonight! Everything was great!
First Ryan came out and showed that they were in the Kodak theatre, not the CBS one anymore. It was huge!

They showed a clip with Ryan flipping a coin and Blake was face up. SO Blake chose himself to go first in order.

He came out with ‘You Give Love A Bad Name’, and it was just deja vu. It doesnt have that freshness. But Simon liked it, thankfully.

Jordin rocked her song with Christina Aguilera’s ‘Fighters’. Her next song, which was sung in Country week, ‘Broken Wing’ was great! She brought a freshness in it and it didnt sound like it was performed before.

Jordin looking stunning tonight.

Blake took Maroon 5′s ‘She Will Be Loved’. Blake seems to grow on Maroon 5. I think he did it fantastically. It was very smooth and nice.

Blordin showdown!

Then comes the idol songwriters challenge winner song, ‘This Is My Now’, which I voted too and it as great song! Blake sung it rather well, but Jordin nailed the song perfectly and she cried at the end. Gah. I think it’ll be a great hit for Jordin if she wins and records it.

Blake while singing ‘This Is My Now’.

I was overjoyed to see Chris R, Phil, Kiki, Melinda, Brandon, Stephanie, Chris S and the guys in the audiece!! Chril were so supporting Blake! Yay!

There’s Chris R, Phil, Mindy Doo in front, Haley at the back. Oh there’s Sanjaya! Chris S, Stephanie, Brandon and the other guys are at the other side. (not shown)

And the show ended with a clippet of Sanjaya crying (Haha!) and Chris Daughtry singing his big hit, ‘Home’. It was great!

I think that Jordin will probrably take the title this year… but Blake still has a chance!! Even if he didnt win, I think he and Chris R will sell more records.

Best of luck to Blake!
Cant wait for tomorrow!
YAY!

Pretty right? I made it! Hehe!
