Twilight = Trash

Has the world gone absolutely insane? Everyone's crazy about Twilight. A close friend of mine even wrote about how it "doesn't have cliches" and she was so sure that I would adore Edward Cullen. No offense to her, but Twilight (book and movie) is trash. Utter trash. My sister was curious about the whole Twilight craze, so she borrowed her friend's book. When she was done, she told me, "Ciaee!! OMG THE BOOK IS SOOOO BAD IT'S GOOD."

I'm not even gonna try and write a review on the story because it'll probably come out sounding quite hateful, and it's not exactly the author's fault that people are crazy over her work. But here are two funny reviews I found. I cracked up so many times.

I want to beat Edward Cullen with a stick.

This is why I stay away from romance books.

If Twilight was written 100 years ago, I can understand. Because back then, a story like this might've been breaking new grounds. But today, hasn't a teenage-drama-vampire-love-story like this one been a million times over? And her writing style is really nothing impressive.

I'm definitely getting the DVD of the movie. I can't wait to watch it together with my sis when she comes back from the US. It's going to be soooo. much. fun. 8D

I've been wanting to get that out of my system for a while.

Book Titles and Love Handles.

I've got some peekchures from LiVon's birthday outing! (I just realized that I've never posted a single photograph on this blog.) Thanks to my cam-whore gal-pals, we took a couple of nice ones that day. :D

LiVon: I shall kiss teh ball.
Ciaee: Any ball I see, I grab.
Weng Yee: Aaaahhhn...

We landed on Borders somehow. I suggested that each one of us go around hunting for books (titles) that reflect our personalities. And so we did.

Weng Yee looks utterly ridiculous, as usual.

Ciaee: I are taller den j00.
Livon: And my b00bs are bigger.

The book title is pretty self-explanatory. Weng Yee, on the other hand... has been in the Tourism and Hospitality business for a little too long.

It was a fun, fun day. We bought a skimpy dress for LiVon and they gave me a can of sweet condensed milk (susu krimer pekat) as my belated birthday gift. Yar. I love my crazy girlfriends. And here's a recent artwork:-

Love Handles.

(I've got to get rid of my love handles.)

Love Handles (definition from Wikipedia):
Love handles, in colloquial or slang speech, are a layer of fat that is deposited around a person's midsection. They are called "love handles" because they can serve as places to hold on while copulating. Love handles are also colloquially called a spare tire.

So many people want to be thinner and thinner and thinner these days; it's insane.

As always, a gif to show you my painting process.

Anyone going to Comic Fiesta? I'm going! :D
