Total Class Act!

I was typing away in my dream blog when I suddenly remembered an incident back then when I was still working as a tour guide. I had a nasty cold and cough back then and my throat was kinda sore, so I more or less wasn't at my best shape when I was doing my tour guiding, but it was nothing meds couldn't cure.

The next day, I felt a little better, although my throat was still a little sore. I didn't want to strain my voice, so I pretty much faked my voice to be worse than it is and pretended that I couldn't talk for the life of me. I depended on facial expressions and body language and also made-up sign languages to convey my message. Needless to say my supervisor saw that I was totally not in shape to do any tour guiding, so he told me to stay in the office and do menial tasks in the meantime. LOL! It was a hoot playing with their minds and screwing with their heads as they try to make head or tail of what I'm trying to say. I even resorted to typing my message on my handphone when they couldn't understand my sign languages.

During lunch hour, I even "talked" with my best friend and colleague using a fake strained voice and whispers, coupled with sign languages, and we more or less had an understanding conversation. I was so convincing that they really thought I've lost my voice and all. LOL!

Then the next few days they let me off the hook and told me to take leave when I continued to put up my mute act. It was relaxing at best, and I enjoyed my weekend peacefully without the interruption of shifts, but it came with a cost of having my salary deducted for the number of days I didn't work. But it was worth it.

Dang, I totally should consider an acting career! XD

Wedding Bells A-Ringing...Soon

Wee~! Finally~! After so many months, we've finally went to do our registration~!

My fiance and I have been planning to get married ever since he proposed to me (unromantically in the car out of the blue). My future mother-in-law went to help us get a guideline paper on what sort of paperwork needed to be prepared for the registration, since I am the foreigner, and I have to do most of the work, coz first of all, I'm the foreigner and the more important works are all on me, and the other thing is that my fiance would be at work and I'm still semi-unemployed, so I've got more or less all the free time at hand to do it.

Getting the paperworks on my side was a little tougher than I thought. Not only I have to have a letter of consent signed by my dad, who is all the way in KK, and a photocopy of his IC, I have to get a paper from the municipal council of KK to prove that I am single and no strings attached. Pretty interesting though, with the stamp and all and I had to wait quite a bit coz it had to depend on whether my fiance's cousin, who lives somewhere near the border of KK, would be available or not to deliver the papers to me, but all in all, I got them.

Then, just when I thought I have all the paperworks prepared, somehow my fiance's passport got stuck in the washing machine coz our maid couldn't bother to double-check the pockets before doing the laundry, so he had to go apply for a new one and details on our letters have to be changed. We were worried as to how are we gonna have my dad sign his letter again because of the detail change, but...well, let's just say we improvised.

We always ended up delaying our trip to the immigration for our marriage registration coz my fiance was always busy ever since he was promoted to Project Technician or something and have to do OTs and stuff, and I always end up being the middle person because my future in-laws are always bugging me to hurry up with the registration before it's too late, and when I have to relay the message to my fiance, he would give me the Kill-the-Messenger attitude which made me upset as well. There are times where he drove me to tears and I really showed him what for...more or less.

Anywho, finally last Saturday, we got the chance to get it over and done with. It was lunch break for the immigration side, so we waited for a while before they returned at 2pm for their remaining working hours. The lady in charge came in and we quickly presented our stuff. It seems we were her first case. She asked us to make an extra copy of some documents and then while she prepared the necessary documents she asked who the "outsider" is, in layman's terms, who is the foreigner. I said I was and she just nodded and pasted our pictures onto the form. Funny thing she was speaking so softly but we didn't want to pressure her to repeat her questions coz we were afraid to offend her. Yeah, so it's a little hard to communicate.

She got us our registration form and told us to come back for an interview same date next month and bring along the necessary documents and also bring along my future father-in-law. According to my future eldest sister-in-law, if they've approved, they will give us a letter and then my fiance and I will have to go all the way to the courthouse to make a formal registration before we will be officially given a certificate of marriage. Wohoo~!

So, wedding bells, get ready to be ringing soon~!

My Rants in the Past

I was checking out some things and stumbled upon my old workplace's website Brudirect.com and remembered that I used to pretend to be someone else posting my thoughts on things. I went by the name Snarry and had sent in quite thought-provoking issues more or less. Although I had to be careful because terms of privacy is very high here and First Amendment doesn't really apply in Brunei. Since I'm no longer in the company, I think it's safe to say I can put it up here.

This is when I was upset about life in Brunei initially and agreeing with someone else's post regarding his/her opinion on Bruneians:
22/10/07

I agree in which we Bruneians are way behind in schedule. I wouldn't say that we are stupid, coz God gave us a brain and He would never intentionally make us stupid, but I would say this in another form: We Bruneians are slower than a snail pace when it comes to forward thinking.

I mean, look at us! How far have we actually gone? Sure, we have a few developments here and there and a few renewals in rules up and about, but that's it! Where's the advancement? Where is the tourism? Where is the hubbub our government promised us to look forward to in order to step into the future and keep up with the times? Where is the improvement of life? Nothing! I don't see anything!

I hate to say this, but seriously, tourism wise, we don't have anything to offer! So what if we're ranked best in London because of Empire? No one comes to Brunei just to stay in a hotel and shop! They can do that in their own country, thank you very much. Nowadays, even tourists are complaining that we don't have anything enough to awe them and said they don't feel like coming back. We never bothered to fix Jerudong Park, we never bothered to create any forms of National Park or Zoo or anything that can rival the ones in Singapore, and we sure as hell are not promoting anything by just high-lighting The Mall and Empire only in our main tourist attraction, because I can guarantee this is the only thing we can offer to the outside world.

We live in a fishbowl, guys. We are too protected and live in a bubble where we refuse to leave from its comfort zone. There are so many Bruneians nowadays who are dying to leave this country to seek better opportunities outside, because, let's face it, there is not much job opportunities here in Brunei. And even though those people actually left the country and work outside, they couldn't cope with the stress of the country's forward thinking and start complaining "Oh my God, how lucky are you to be Bruneians" and all that crap. Come on! If you're not prepared to cope with the life our country is meant to have, don't leave! Stay here and rot!

And another thing, we are too confined into our religious beliefs that our minds are ending up as a closed door to the outside world. I'm not saying that I'm against the religion or anything, but come on! Open your mind a little! How do you think other countries managed to reached the development age without bending the rules once in a while?! How did Malaysia managed to be so much better than we are?? Even the Middle East seemed way much more advanced and open-minded than we are!

The government spend so much money and scholarship to send students to UK and overseas to study, and I have to admit, I applaud the way the government want their children to excel and bring in ideas from what they've learnt to better secure the future of our country by providing lodgings, allowance and all that whatnot. But when they graduate and DO bring ideas into the society to be put to good use for the country, our country's religious beliefs refused to acknowledge those ideas because it's too forward-thinking and not suitable for our country's moral and religious lifestyle. Then why the hell did you send them off to overseas like UK in the first place?! Might as well let them continue studying in UBD, that's it!

There are so many things I'd like to berate about us Bruneians, but let's make it a more open discussion like civilized people, shall we?

I love my country, and I am speaking this out of love

This was when I was addressing the issue on corrupt cops:
28/09/07
I was very overwhelmed by yesterday's and today's news about the police sexually assaulting and molesting the Chinese tourists and their way of handling their raid business.

I mean, be serious, how can you just simply enter other people's premises without a warrant? If you claim that you have a warrant, show it. Not just saying "Oh, I have a warrant" and then not producing it or proving it that you have it

And then there's the search. This is so stereotypical of men, not only the police, these days. Just because you're from China doesn't mean you're here to promote prostitution. Are you trying to say that every Chinese that come here is here to sell their bodies? Of course not! It is an outrage! It's plain and simply discrimination! And what is this I read about jamming the tourist's visit pass into her jeans until the button broke? And the other police raiding who have supposedly witnessed the act, were conveniently "not in the room"? This is unacceptable! Isn't that enough evidence to be a sexual harassment and a cover-up?

What about the evidence that the police claim to have found in the search?

According to the news, the police said that "circumstantial evidence shows that there is proof that this place is a brothel and a place of 'inappropriate' business". If so, where is the evidence? Why don't they want to show it to the lawyer? Why did they not want to disclose the evidence? Don't they want to prove their point? If they do, show it! Not hide it!

And then they have the nerve to detain people, confiscate their passports, and issue an order to remove them out of the country, in which they have no power to do so except the court? How can they do that?? And I also believe what the lawyer said in which "the police will drag the investigation until the girls are fed up and go back home" might happen, judging by how bias and inconsiderate they handle their jobs. Why, I never!

The government must take this corruption seriously. This goes to show that Brunei police has gotten even more and more embarassing as years go by. Corruption, indecency, unlawful procedures of work, disregarding the code of honour...need I say more?

This is when I was literally screwing at Wecan Restaurant after reading a forwarded email and heard from countless experiences regarding the treatment they gave to customers:
02/10/07
This is very disappointing. To think that we take pride in Bruneians being polite, humble and courteous has been tainted by this restaurant who doesn't know the first thing about customer service! I know sometimes customers are not always right, but in this case, the term 'customers are always right' definitely applies.

What's so wrong about excluding the 4 ppl out of the 14? Can die ka? If you want to sedekah so much, go outside your doorstep and pretend to be beggar to beg for money la, then maybe they might CONSIDER sedekah to you.

And how dare you scream at your customers? In front of other customers no less. If your food is not enough to serve other customers, it's your problem your cook is too lazy to cook and refill! Don't blame customers for eating too much. They have the right to eat as much as they like! That's what buffet is all about!

And who gives you the power to 'haramkan' the food and your customer's presence? You think you're God, to just simply haram people as you feel like it? You have no shame!

I am definitely not going to set even a single toenail onto your shop. See how you survive without customers!

This was after I read an issue on a lesbian marriage in Melaka, Malaysia and the tragic story of them being separated:
22/09/07
I've been reading a lot of online news and websites and also world news lately portraying on how this guy got married to that guy and how this girl got married with that girl and how their love and marriages triumphed over all obstacles.

Then I read one of our local news a few weeks ago about a lesbian couple in Melaka, Malaysia, were forced to divorce each other because the "husband" is not male nor hermaphrodite in medical standards and therefore illegal in Syariah law or something. The "husband" only changed her name to a man's name, but was still physically a woman, and that was not allowed and are forced to divorce each other after so many years of marriage.

Other countries are so open to same sex marriages, and I for one am not against same sex marriages. In fact I support it.

I mean, who are we to deny their right to love each other? Isn't life all about love and cherishing each other? Is there really any concrete proof that it is politically, morally and religiously (no offence) wrong? Do they hurt anybody by loving each other? Did they commit really harmful crimes that can threaten the entire nation? Is their love lawfully wrong?

Of course NOT!

I really do feel sorry for those who have hide their true preference of love just to put up a show and please the society. Some even have to go through painstaking hours and money just to change their gender so that their love can be acceptable. Why? Why are we so discriminating towards them when their love is no different that our hetero love? If other can give them the right and freedom to love whoever they want, why can't we?

So I ask this question to you all, and feel free to reply me: Do you think same sex marriages and love is, once and for all, WRONG?

This was when I was very upset with my ex-boss and literally screwing them:
21/09/07
Have you ever had reli crappy bosses that are like venom in your life, the bane of your existence? I'm sure everyone does, but let me share my experience with you

I work under a private firm who is run by two bosses, and let me just call them K and Q. Q is OK to tolerate. Q can be a little fussy, and forgetful at times, but I don't blame Q, because Q has a lot of clients and projects in mind. So dealing with Q was never a real problem.

K, now that's a problem. K's a two-faced kinda guy. One minute K can be reli nice and friendly, then the next minute K will be breathing down ur neck and bombing you for no reason. I've become victims of K's mood-swings quite often. He asks you to do something, then scolds you for doing it wrongly when you are actually following exactly what he asked. There was once when he had asked me last minute to prepare an urgent report, and I sacrificed my lunch hour just to prepare the report for him. When he asked 5 minutes later where is the report, and I said, it's not entirely complete yet, he scolded me for doing things last minute when in fact, he was the one who asked me to do it last minute! How can you ask someone to finish a report within 5 minutes when it's one of those long reports that has to cover everything?? I ask you??

Just the other day, he bombed me for a tiny mistake I did in my job. I admit I made that mistake, but he saw it himself that when I was doing his thing, I was also doing another thing for Q at the same time and asked him to wait for a moment, in which he consented and said, "OK, you do Q's stuff first, but I want it now, ASAP". It wouldn't be a surprise that I would get confused when I'm asked to do two things at once. I mean, multitasking is a good thing, but everyone has limits. When I wanted to explain my situation to him, he cut me off and said, "No! You've done this mistake too many times already!" when in fact I only started working 2 mths ago! He doesn't even know what I want to say in the first place and assumed I was trying to worm my way out of the situation. Now how unreasonable is that??

And to think I have to put up with all this for only a meager $600! The worse thing is that one of my colleagues is taking maternity leave, and I had to do her s**t plus Q's s**t PLUS K's s**t! Where is the justice in that??

It may be Puasa time this month, and everyone is encouraged to beristighfar banyak-banyak, but bottling it up is just not healthy! It's very very bad, and people have limits as to how far they can tolerate their crappy bosses!

Gosh, I just wish K would just disappear from the face of the earth!

This was during the anniversary of the 9-11 incident:
11/09/07
I would like to draw everyone's attention to this day Sept 11. Though we may rejoice to the upcoming puasa and the eventual holiday of Hari Raya, do not forget those who are saddened and greiving for their loved ones who have passed on to the next life and those who have risked their lives, and died in the process, trying to save the survivors of 9-11.

Let us pray for the wellbeing of those gone during that day at the tragic event of 9-11 at the World Trade Centre and give our condolences to the friends and families and survivors who lost their dearest people on that day

May God bless their souls in Heaven
This is when I was disagreeing on the opinion on whether Borneo Bulletin or Brunei Times was better:
17/09/07
No offence but, come on, Observatory Tower, who are you kidding? I don't see anything good about BT. In fact, I can't see why BT's style of giving out the news to the public. Do you even KNOW what's going on within the walls of that news company?

I'm not going to say what truly goes on behind the doors of BT, but I can say one thing: When it comes to quality newspaper, BB always reign supreme. True, BB could use a little bit of work in their field, but at least their news are so much more reliable than BT.

For instance, who in their right mind want to buy such a big-a** newspaper with words that you need to bring almost close to your nose to read their words? Why is it so thin and not like BB which covers everything including world wide news on a bigger scale? BB has even the entertainment page and talked about more current issues and entertainment news, and has a better comic section. All I see from BT is just serious, serious, serious, with only two or three comics in between, and more serious. And it's so thin! BB may be huge and fat and bulky, but at least it's fat and bulky for a reason: more news! The first thing you see from BT is the thin look which gives you the first impression that there's nothing much it's gonna offer

And I don't believe their pictures are good. I think BB's pictures are way better, and their news more reliable. The pictures that they capture really focus on the core of the subject it wants to give out to the public. The people there may be highly educated but lack creativity.

Don't get offended. I'm just stating my opinion. It's the Puasa time after all
You know what's so funny from all this. No one thought for a second it was a woman who sent this. They all assume I was a guy by calling me 'he' and not 'she'. LOL~!

A Series of Jokes

COW-A-BUNGLE
Dr. DoLittle helped his farmer friend to get him a nice strong bull to replace the old bull he used for breeding his cows. But a week later, his friend called him and said that his old bull looked sickly and wanted him to find out what's wrong. So Dr. Dolittle did.

When he arrived at his friend's farm, he was surprised to see that his friend was right: the old bull was in rather terrible shape and looked much more tired than he should. He went up to talk to the old bull.

Dr. DoLittle: Hey, old bull. How's retirement?

Old bull: Fine, just fine. Grazing and moving around as I please, no longer having to tire myself trying to mate with all 10 of those cows. I have the time in the world

Dr. DoLittle: Then why the long face?

Old bull: If only you can tell that young bull to stop "sneaking up" at me every night because I'm not a cow!

PARTY MAYHEM
A newly wed couple were invited to a costume party, but on the day of the party, the wife didn't feel well, so she asked the husband to go without her. After taking some pills and a short nap, she decided to check on her husband to see if he was being loyal to her at her absence. She changed a different costume and saw her husband in his Spiderman suit at the party. She pretended to be someone else and seduced him into making love with her with their masks on. After the ordeal, she went back home and waited angrily for her husband to return. When he did, she asked, "So how was the party?"

"I didn't really enjoy it," the husband replied. "I spent the whole party playing poker with my friends. Your cousin borrowed my costume and he seemed to enjoy his time though."

NOT FUSSY
A lady walks into a restaurant for lunch. A young waiter immediately tends to her.

Waiter: What would you like to order, ma'am?

Lady: Oh, give me steak, and make it 75% done, because I don't like it well done, too tough. And hold the mushrooms because I'm allergic to it. The salad, make it coleslaw, but I want it very fresh and very cold, and the gravy I want it to be black pepper, but not too much pepper please, they make me sneeze. I want a 1917 Burgundy, and I want it to be fresh out of the shelf, not those old ones that have been half-drunk. And for the soup, I want it to be cream of chicken, but don't put in too much chicken, and make it creamy and thick. Thank you

Waiter: *writes everything down to the last detail* OK, ma'am. And for your dessert, ma'am?

Lady: Oh, just an apple crumble please. I'm not that fussy

Lady A: Yeah, he did

Lady B: Then I think your boyfriend is much more daring than you

DRINKING PROBLEM
Kid: Mom, I have a drinking problem

Mom: Oh no! But you're only six! How can that be? *turns to the father* It's all your fault! You never spend time with your son! Now he has a drinking problem and it's all because of YOU!

Dad: What?? Is this the thanks I get for slaving all day at work to provide you and the whole family?? That's it! I'm leaving! *walks out*

Mom: Fine! We don't need you anyway! *turns to the son* Don't worry, son. We're better off without him. Now tell me, son, about this drinking problem of yours.

Kid: Here it is *takes out a question paper* "If A drinks 15 out of 300 litres of water, how much is that in mililitres?"

Defenders of Dynatron City

I was going through some pictures in Google when suddenly a childhood memory struck me. It was a one-shot cartoon called "Defenders of Dynatron City" (although in my country, it was named as Dynamation City, no idea why) which really captivated me. I researched on it online and this is what I got from Wikipedia:

Defenders of Dynatron City is a video game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System by JVC and LucasArts in August 1992.[1]

Videogame

The game centers on a team of superheroes who protect a futuristic metropolis from Dr. Mayhem and his robotic henchmen. The Defenders are:

  • Ms. Megawatt (voiced by Whoopi Goldberg in the animated series), who can shoot electric bolts
  • Jet Headstrong, who can fire his head like a rocket
  • Buzzsaw Girl, who has a buzzsaw blade instead of legs
  • Toolbox, a robot with a smashing hammer head
  • Monkey Kid, a blue monkey armed with exploding bananas
  • Radium Dog, who can fly and has jaws strong enough to pick up cars with his mouth

Critical response

The game won praise in its preproduction by many video game magazines for the creation of an original superhero team. However, when the game was released it was widely panned by video game critics for, among other things, having a notoriously poor hit detection that required extremely precise aim for attacks to hit enemies. [2][citation needed]

TV show

The game was adapted into an animated pilot by DiC Entertainment.[3][4] It failed to be picked up and was released on VHS.[5] It featured the voice of Whoopi Goldberg, Tim Curry, and almost Christopher Walken.[6]

Comics

Marvel Comics released six issues of a comic book adaptation, written by Steve Purcell. The first issue was released in February 1992.[7]

I tried to look for the video in YouTube, which led me to Veoh.com for the full story, but unfortunately, no idea why, Veoh is no longer available in Brunei, which pissed me off big time, because I wanted to watch it again. There was a short clip of it in YouTube and even though I had to admit, it's kinda crappy animation for its timeline, it still rocks big time as I was reliving my childhood of falling in love with the characters but was hoping for a continuation that never happened. After reading Wikipedia, my long time question was finally answered.

It was kinda sad for me to know that it was only a one-shot that didn't make it because even though the animation sucked, it had potential. I especially am in love with the character Toolbox. Dunno why, he was the one that stood out among the rest and caught my eye. I even remember drawing doujins of them when I was a kid, creating my own OC called Screw Pogo or something like that to be paired with Toolbox. And it's by Lucas Art and the famous DiC Entertainment, who had been putting out a lot of good-quality cartoon series in the years back then, so why didn't it set off? It was upsetting to know that a potentially good cartoon came to a halt as a one-shot just like that. I swear sometimes people just don't know good stuff when they see one

I hope they would bring it back. It's very good. Maybe make a reboot and officially make it a cartoon series, even if it's just for one season

My Fantasy Loves Throughout the Years



BATMAN (BRUCE WAYNE)

He was my first love. He is a man of mystery and justice. He travels at night to fight crime and uphold peace upon the City of Gotham. I called him the Warrior of the Night. He has two partners Robin and Batgirl. I used to admire Robin too, but Batman has always been the center of my attention. He lives a quite solitary life. He is the multi-billionaire Bruce Wayne during the day, giving out charity and manages everything in the business and development of Gotham City. He practically almost owns the whole Gotham City given his status. By night, he is the silent hunter—the Guardian Angel of his beloved city. I loved him for the mysterious, dark side of him and the way he hovers around in Gotham City and protecting them from evil villains like a shadow. He was the only superhero I’ve ever seen without any superpowers, and also a true hero because I believe a true superhero relies on his heart, not just his powers to fight crime.. He’s my protective shadow.

FREAKAZOID
He was the second love. He is a crackpot and a crazy superhero with a way of saving the world: the crazy, wacky way! In real life, he was a typical, no-show teenager trying to cope with life, but when he got a computer microchip for a Christmas present and he tried it on his computer, he soon turned into the crazy superhero he was. That microchip—as far as I can remember—was an experimental microchip that somehow went through a minor short circuit during its creation and somehow turned into some chip that releases the crazy side of humans deep down inside people, and that’s what happened to the teenager. As he learned to control his powers and use them for good, whenever he wants to transform into Freakazoid, all he had to do is say the magic word: ‘Freak Out’. When he wants to return to his geeky self, he’ll say ‘Freak In’. I loved him for the wacky way he does things and the way he never ceases to amuse and surprise me. And he’s quite cute too, if you ignore his crazy antics. He’s my crazy monkey.

MISBUN SIDEK @ BUN

He is the love of my life, and I still love him even today. Although I have promised myself not be obsessed with him anymore now that I’ve grown up, I still couldn’t get over the fact that sooner or later I am going to see him marry someone else in the comics and I can’t do anything about it. He is titled as the national badminton coach now, but I call him the Badminton Master. He didn’t start out liking badminton and he often got himself into serious trouble by his dad (I pity him often for being forced to do things that he didn’t like), but he had to admit that badminton did hold a good future for him, which led him to who he is now. I loved him because of his mysterious attitude and his fascination for the supernatural. He and I had a lot in common, which made me even more ultimately attracted to him. He’s my husband.

KATSUYA KIMURA

He is my dearest little outlaw. He is the Student of Domori Elementary and he’s everything a bad boy has and more. I have a thing for bad boys, so his attitude really clicked with me. He maybe a Grade 5 student, but he looked nowhere near a primary schooler. He is so much like a secondary schooler to me! He had everything bad boys have: smoking, cheating, stealing, lying, his long, unentirely done hair, and he is so cute!!! Of course, another thing that makes me attracted to him is that despite his unearthly attitude, he had great responsibility and makes a great father if he were to have a family. I could see that by the way he treats his sister like she meant the whole world to him. Who wouldn’t if your parents were out working all day long till the middle of the night and you have to take care of your sister ever since she was born? I know I would. He’s my lover.

ALEX BENJONE @ BEN

He is a creation of my senior’s artwork. He doesn’t exactly exist in any comics outside. My senior and I have a great passion for comic books and anime and I introduced the Anak-Anak Sidek comic to her. She was so used to drawing Japanese manga that I tried to train her to draw Malaysian manga, as in my Anak-Anak Sidek characters. She tried and did quite a good job, only that she made this Alex Benjone so much of Bun’s doppelganger that I couldn’t help admiring him. Of course I only admire him; I don’t love him that hard. He’s my best friend.

CHICHIRI

He is my loving soul mate and my darling. He is the life and soul of his Suzaku (Red Phoenix) team. He has the δΊ• sign on his left knee and he wears a smiley mask on his face. He did that because he’s covering up the scar on his blind left eye he got from accidentally killing his best friend. That scar could’ve healed but he refused to let it heal out of guilt. He is a traveling monk but I called him the High Monk due to the fact that he really is good in his incantations and always had an upbeat on life while he tries to cope with the guilt within him. I loved him so much because of his smiley face, mysterious attitude, bright outlook in life and his handsome face when he takes off the mask.

TEACHER RASCAL

Teacher Rascal is a very, very interesting guy who teaches in a sort-of magical school (nowhere near Harry Potter style) and is the class teacher of Princess Akazukin Cha-Cha. He always carries a whip and loves to whip it like crazy, and the most important is he is the doppelganger of Katsuya Kimura! I was so shocked when I saw he was so much like Katsuya! I fell in love with him at once. Of course, it was just a phase. He is no better than the real Katsuya. He’s just a doppelganger and nothing else. He’s my Katsuya-wannabe.

MIGHTY MAX

He is the doppelganger of my dear Bun. He gets to travel through dimensions to save the world using the portal cap on his head and his sole mission is to prevent his archenemy SkullMaster from taking the cap to rule the dimensions. He looked so much like my Bun. I know I don’t do doppelgangers but the problem is…he had been in my childhood for quite a long time, which means he had been my Bun for so long, and yet I never noticed it! Damn it! I couldn’t let him go!!! He is known for many titles: ‘The Chosen One’, ‘Mighty One’ and ‘The Justified One’. But in the end, he is my childhood lover.

SEVERUS SNAPE

He is mysterious, dark and cold. He is my cold statue. He is a Potion Master in Hogwarts teaching Potions (obviously) to Harry Potter and his gang, as well as the whole bunch of students under his care. He had that certain feeling that he is hiding something, yet you just can’t figure out what’s going on in his mind, no matter how much you try to pry it open. He is emotionless and cold (except when he’s really pissed off) and he is cynical and critical as ever. No one, and I mean no one, can move him an inch. He is firm to his decision but unfortunately very unfair. He plays favourites and loves to give Harry a hard time. He may not be handsome and cute, but I love him just the same, because he’s the most challenging kind of love I’ve ever met.

LEGOLAS GREENLEAF

He is the dream of every female. He is beautiful and handsome at the same time, with his blonde hair and green eyes and his flawless skin. He is the Elf Prince of Mirkwood in LOTR movies. He and the Fellowship of the Ring came together to fight the evil villain Sauron and help Frodo in everyway to destroy the One Ring that could bring the revival of Sauron and the downfall of all mankind. He is great in archery, swordsmanship and riding horses. He is agile and gentle at the same time (I just LOVE the way he leapt on the horse to join the fight). He is my Elf Prince.

JINGGO THE HUNTER

He is much of a latest crush, but a crush nonetheless. He is both cool and cute at the same time and there’s something unique about him that totally attracts me. He is a private detective helping the city to solve cases and most importantly, reap high payments for it. Well, he’s not always that money-minded but he sure cares a lot about the public to do what he’s doing. He has two partners—Joned who has been with him since he started the private detective business and his faithful companion throughout their years of work, and Kido who was an extra help hired through interview. He got in because of his talent: he has telekinetic powers and is also part-psychic. Somehow, there is a drawback for my crush for him. In the last episode of the series, Jinggo died in an attempt to get rid of an alien who travels around the galaxy looking for a worthy opponent to fight. The undefeatable Jinggo was defeated. Joned and Kido were left all alone to face the wreck of earth the alien behind before he disappeared as suddenly as it came. Jinggo was left floating in space, his body slowly breaking into pieces as the vacuum of space sucked his body…It was so sad that I practically mourned for him for a week! He would always be in my mind though. This was my first love that ever died. He is my one-time gallant hunter.

Urban Legends

These are urban legends I have collected from various sites that are worth reading into (although most of them are already proven to be just rumours or fake):

The air hostess, as she passed along the aisle of the plane on the transatlantic flight from Amsterdam to New York noticed that the baby, nestled between the couple who were asleep, didn't look very well, in fact it looked extremely ill. Not wanting to disturb anyone she gently lifted up the baby and took it back to her station. Feeling the baby's forehead, she found it was cold and with a sudden panic she realised that the infant was dead. Calling upon a doctor she knew to be on board, he examined the baby and confirmed that, not only was it dead, but it was embalmed. The child's body had been hollowed out and it was full of the drugs that the couple was trying to smuggle into the States.

A young lady is alone in her apartment. She goes to bed with her dog on the floor beside her. In the middle of the night, she is woken up by a strange sound. She is alarmed, but reaches down to the dog, who licks her hand. She is reassured and goes back to sleep. In the morning, she finds the dog hung in the shower. Where the dog slept, she picks up a note which reads 'Humans can lick too,"

A woman living in the city {Salt Lake} was visiting some friends in Ogden. When she got into her car in front of this friend's house, she noticed that a car started up right behind her car. It was about 2:00 in the morning, and there weren't any other cars on the road. After she had driven to the highway, she began to think that this car was following her. Some of the time he would drive up real close to her car, but he wouldn't ever pass. She was really scared to death and kept speeding to try to get away from him. When she got to Salt Lake, she started running stop lights to get away from him, but he would run right through them too. So when she got to her driveway she pulled in really fast, and this guy pulled in right behind her. She just laid on the horn, and her husband came running out. Just then, the guy jumped out of the car, and her husband ran over and said, 'What the hell's goin' on here?" So he grabbed the guy, and his wife said, "This man's followed me all the way from Ogden." The man said, 'I followed your wife because I was going to work, and as got into my car, I noticed when I turned my lights on, a man's head bob down in her back seat." So the husband went over to her back-seat, opened the door, and there was a deranged man sitting on the floor with a knife in his hand.

Two roommates remain at their deserted college dormitory over a holiday break. One of the girls goes out on a date that evening, and the other one turn in and goes to bed before her roommate returns. Later that night the sleeping girl is awakened by gurgling and scratching noises coming from outside the hallway door. Frightened, she locks the door and cowers inside the room until morning. When the girl finally opens the door and ventures outside, she discovers the bloody corpse of her roommate in the hallway. The murdered girl's throat had been slit, and she had bled to death in the hallway while clawing at the door.

In Berlin, after World War II, money was short, supplies were tight, and it seemed like everyone was hungry. At that time, people were telling the tale of a young woman who saw a blind man picking his way through a crowd. The two started to talk. The man asked her for a favour: could she deliver the letter to the address on the envelope? Well, it was on her way home, so she agreed. She started out to deliver the message, when she turned around to see if there was anything else the blind man needed. But she spotted him hurrying through the crowd without his smoked glasses or white cane. She went to the police, who raided the address on the envelope, where they found heaps of human flesh for sale. And what was in the envelope? A note saying 'This is the last one I am sending you today,"

A male flight attendant was stopping over at Japan. He went to a local bar where a Japanese man and woman approached him. They chatted and had a drink, The man gave him an old traditional Japanese drink. The next memory the flight attendant had, was when he woke up in a bath of ice in a hotel room with agonizing pains in his stomach. He managed to pull himself out the bath and phone the police. He told them everything he could remember, the policeman described the two people and the man said that's what they were like. The policeman calmly told him to get back into the bath and sit there till the police and ambulance had arrived, The man's kidneys had been removed.

Supposedly, at another college in the state, a girl was studying late and went back to her dorm room to get some books or notes. So she wouldn’t disturb her roommate, she didn’t turn on the lights when she got her stuff off of her desk. Later when she went back to her room, she found her roommate dead and a note written in lipstick on the mirror. It said, "Aren’t you glad you didn’t turn on the light?"

A rich elderly lady from Harrogate was taking her pet poodle for a walk when they were caught in a downpour. Rushing back inside, fretful for her pampered pet, she was desperate to dry him out and warm him up as soon as possible. So she took him straight into the kitchen, opened the door of her daughter's new microwave cooker for the first time, and thrust him in, moving the dial to a moderate setting. She patted his head and carefully closed the door with a click. The old lady was still drying her hair when the cooked dog exploded, ripping the door off the microwave.

This guy had this date with this really cool girl, and all he could think about all night was taking her out and parking and having a really good time, so he takes her out in the country, stops the car, turns the lights off, puts the radio on, nice music; he's really getting her in the mood, and all of a sudden there's this news flash comes on over the radio and says to the effect that a sex maniac has just escaped from the state insane asylum and the one distinguishing feature of this man is that he has a hook arm, and in the first place this girl is really, really upset, 'cause she's just sure this guy is going to come and try and get in their car, so the guy locks all the doors and says it'll all be okay, but she says he could take his arm and break through the window and everything and she just cries and cries and goes just really frantic and the guy finally consents to take her home, but he's really mad 'cause you know he really had his plans for this girl, so he revs up the car and he goes torquing out of there and they get to her house, and he's really, really mad and he's not even going to get out of the car and open the door for her, and she just gets out on her own side of the car and as she gets out she turns around and looks and there's a hook hanging on the door.

A teenager is driving his girlfriend home from a date. The boy had been playing around earlier about the car running out of gas as a means to make out with her. Well, it doesn't work and she's mad. He starts up the car to take her home, apologizing all the way, when lo and behold they actually do run out of gas. He pulls the car over by some trees. It's very late and the area is secluded and wooded. The boy tells his girlfriend that he saw a gas station a couple of miles back and since going ahead would take even longer, he tells her to stay in the car with the windows rolled up and locked and he'll get back as fast as he can, no sense in both of them going, right? Well, the girl waits in the car. It's been about 20 minutes when she hears a faint scratching noise. It starts to bother her, but she blows it off as the tree branches hitting the car, it had been windy that day, She decides to turn on the radio to listen to some music so it won't freak her out. Well, now it's been almost 2 hours and she's starting to get worried. Her boyfriend was a jock and could have easily made it there and back in under an hour. A half hour later she's very worried and decides to turn off the radio and look around. He had told her not to get out under any circumstances so she tries to peer out the window, she sees nothing. To her annoyance the scratching sound is still there. She decides that she will get out just long enough to break off that damn branch.

She immediately turns around and sees her boyfriend hanging upside down from the tree, throat slit, and his fingernails dragging across the top of the car making a scratching sound.

If you stand in front of a mirror in a dark room and chant "Bloody Mary" twelve times starting at the stroke of midnight, the face of a hideous woman will appear in the mirror. It's the spirit of a girl who was born with a disfiguring disease and was killed by a cruel joke gone awry.

One girl claimed that the old man who had been buried earlier that week in the graveyard down the street had been buried alive. She claimed that if you tried you could hear him scratching at the lid of his coffin still. The other girls called her bluff and told her she was afraid to go there tonight. She eventually accepted their challenge and took a stake with her to drive in the ground to prove she'd been there. She headed off to the gravesite right away and never returned, the others assumed she had "chickened out" and went home ashamed. The next morning as they passed the graveyard they saw her there at the old man's grave. She had accidentally staked her nightshirt to the ground and died of fright.

A young lady driving alone down the highway one night saw a large gray-haired woman slowly walking along the side of the road. She pulled over and offered the old woman a ride. As they rode along, the women made small-talk. As the old lady offered her a stick of gum, she noticed the old woman's hands were very wide and the knuckles were badly scarred, she also saw how incredibly hairy the woman's arm was. Realizing her mistake, she swerved and said she thought she'd hit something, then she stopped and asked the old lady if she'd take a look. When the old lady was behind the car, the girl sped off. The young girl immediately felt guilty realizing that she had probably just been an old woman, and in her nervousness she had behaved very badly. She felt even worse when she noticed the old woman's purse sitting in the floor of the passenger side. Realizing she couldn't just go on with it, she lifted it from the floor and saw that inside it was filled with wallets, watches and jewelry and a large bloody hunting knife.

The driver smiled and said "Alright, when will the war end?" the hitchhiker replied "The war will end in July as surely as you will have a dead man in your car before you get home." Unsettled, the couple said good-bye and drove off. Before they reached home they saw a wrecked ambulance by the road, they picked up the driver and a badly hurt patient.

A few weeks later the woman finally received another letter from her son, it read: "Dear Mom, Try not to worry about me, they are treating us well and I'll be released as soon as the war is over. Make sure that little Teddy gets the stamp for his collection. Love you, Joe" The woman was overjoyed to hear the news, but was confused because she had no idea who "little Teddy" was. She decided to steam the stamp from the envelope and have a look. When she did she saw that written on the back of the stamp were the words: "They've cut off my legs".

A young man and his new bride were honeymooning in Paris when his wife went into a restroom and didn't return. With time the man began to fear the worst and went to the police.

He cautioned residents to lock their doors and windows because this guy was very, very dangerous. Well, the teenager checked the locks on the windows and the doors, but she forgot the door on the cellar bulkhead. Needless to say, the psychopath broke in about an hour later, coming up from the cellar, armed with an ax. The children heard some noises downstairs, but thought it was the baby-sitter moving some furniture around. Then it got real quiet. All they heard for the remainder of the night was this noise: "Thump! Thump! Dra-aag... Thump! Thump! Dra-aag..." Evidently, they were too afraid to get up to see what it was. In the morning, their parents came home and were horrified to find the babysitter at the top of the stairs, dead with both arms hacked off at the elbows. She'd been climbing the stairs on the bloody stumps of her arms, pulling her badly injured body along. Was she trying to check on the children? Was she trying to get help?
