25 Random Things About Me

A billion years ago I got tagged on Facebook to do this note called '25 things'. Instead of doing it in Facebook, I'm just gonna do it here. So yeah, read on! :)

Everytime I go to a mamak stall or restaurant whatsoever, I always without doubt, will order Milo Ice. Its become kinda a habit I guess. Besides, who doesn't love milo ice? Its the best most delish drink ever invented! Period!

I get leg cramps very easily. In other words, pins and needles. I seriously don't know why. It happens everytime I sit crossed-legged. I know this is bound to happen if I sit too long cause the blood cannot run smoothly and stuff.. but the thing is, even if I sit for like a FEW minutes, I already get em' cramps. Is this normal? D:

Ever since I stared watching this Korean drama called 'Boys Over Flowers' last year. I got hooked on K-dramas and songs. In order words, yes, you can call me a Korean addict :D and I'm proud of it too. For all you anti-koreans, spare me your dirty looks. I used to be just like you okay?  I used to think the guys there were so girl-ish and too feminine, but now.. they look nothing but hot in my eyes. *dreamy zombie voice* come... come and join the Korean craze before its too late... OoOOohh....

This year, I stole took a teachers pass, and never gave it back. I'M SORRY OKAY D: it was an accident! It was a few more minutes before school ended and I seriously could not hold back anymore. In other words, bladder was in critical condition! So I took teachers pass and went to the toilet. When I finished my *ahem* buisness, school bell rang. Despite my frantic search for teacher, I still couldn't find her...

I'm sorry, let me keep this as souvenier of this school?

Okay, a few of you may know this about me already but for those who don't... You know most people eat their roti canai/ roti telur with dal or curry, right? Well, not me! ^______^ I eat mine with sugar. Trust me, it taste way nicer. The reason I started in the first place was cause when I was younger (like, age 6) my parents gave me sugar instead of dal cause they were afraid I couldn't stand the spicy-ness. Tens years later, and whadya know? I'm still hooked on eating roti canai + sugar.

I. am. obsessed. with. my. hair. This is a fact I'm sure most of my friends already know. Early this year my obsession got so bad that I couldn't walk past one car without looking at the glass reflection to check/puff my hair. However! Its safe to say my obsession kinda died down a little after one particular incident -.- its embarassing.. should I tell you? Hmmm.... ahh, what the hell! Here's what happen :

I was walking past a car. Then, it couldn't help it. The glass reflection was calling out to me!! I could hear it, it was saying 'check your hair.. check your hair'. That was it. I went to the mirror and happily puff puff puffity puff my hair :) aaahh, satisfied. And that was when I saw.. him. Starring back at me. From the other side of the car window!! D: His facial expression was an exact replica of mine. We both had this omg-who-the-hell-are-you look on our face. Turns out, in my concentration on checking my hair, I completely did not notice that the car had a person inside it watching me check my hair the whole time. I swear, I got no face at that moment x_X  I quickly mumbled an apology and RAN away. Literally.

You know those lil' photobooths in Sunway Pyramid or anywhere else? I absolutely LOVE taking pictures in booths. I love those moments when you and your buddies go scrambling into another pose as the timer ticks in front, I love see-ing how gorgeous our face turns out (due to the good lighting) or it could be vice versa, how hilarious some of the facial expression will turn out x), I love edditting the pictures later on and adding those funny stickers and words, in short I love everything about those photobooths!

Oh there's more, trust me. I just malas wanna show all :P

I have a tendency to read back what I wrote very often when I'm writing something. Like, for example, at this moment itself, I'm gonna read back what I wrote from the beginning of the post..................Ok, I'm done. You see? This is so annoying but I can't help it. I will always have this urge to read back what I wrote every few minutes. =S

Once, I ate half an insect body when I was happily munching on choclates. Bleeeehhhhh. It tasted like.. shit! Not that I would know how shit taste, cause I never ate shit before.. but ahh, screw it you get what I mean. It tasted horrid! Who knew insects had such a metal-ish bitter taste about them?

Also, I once stepped on a...omigod.. COCKROACH! And I was barefoot D: Now that was honestly the most disgusting feeling ever. I have goosebumps even as I type this out. You see, I've always had this phobia for cockroaces. Ask any of my friends, I'm sure they know my fear for cocroaches, right Lim? Hahahah. Needless to say, that accident made me even more terrified with cockroaces then I already am.

The truth is, I stalk random people whom I find interesting on Facebook. I can spend like, hours going trough their photos and stuff. The saddest part is, I don't even know this people and they probably don't even know I exist either! D: But as long as they're interesting, then I enjoy browsing trough their stuff. Hey, you there. Yes, you reading this right now. Be careful, I might just be stalking.. you.

Be careful folks...

Stalker on the loose!!

I just finished re-reading my post from the top. (again -.-)

I recently developed a fear towards my own hand phone. Well technically, more like my... number? I should explain. Recently, my OWN number has been calling me at night. The first time it happened I was shocked o__O Like, I didn't know if I should even pick it up or not. In the end I didn't. (cause I'm chicken :P) It was so scary when  it kept ringing.. and ringing.. and ringing.. and ringing... then it stopped. 

Omg pheww. I was puzzled but thankful it finally stopped ringing. Then, I got a message stating this : You have received a voicemail from 012-*******. MY OWN NUMBER. What the heck?! So I dailed 1313 and listed to the voicemail. Man, I'm brave. Well anyway, the voicemail was.... weird. I could hear shuffling, as if the person or thing that called me was doing something. And breathing sounds. Scary. Then, the voicemail ended. 

The following night, I got a call from my number again. I didn't pick up again. Why is my phone doing this to me?! I'm seriously jumping into conclusions. Is my phone possibly.... haunted?! *dramatic music*

When I was younger, I had this stuff toy rabbit that I love so very much. However, I've been neglecting her since I've grown older and stuff.. Anyhow, her name is Abbit! Don't ask me why that's her name, cause I can't remember either. My theory is, she is a rabbit. Take away the letter 'R' and what do you get? ABBIT! Haha, I was a kid okay? Probably my creative juices weren't fully developed yet :S

Told you Abbit was old :P

This rabbit name Abbit has been everywhere with me when I was young. I even took her to Korea and other holiday destinations.. sighs, I miss her, but we'll probably never be as close as we used to be. I've grown up now. :(

I care way too much about what other people think of me and their impressions about me. I wish I don't, but I do. I always try my hardest to please everybody and I hate offending people. Its so annoying cause I end up hurting myself in the end. Thankfully, over the years I have toughen up a little and I don't try to please everyone that much anymore. I still do, but not so much :) Push me to my limits, and I will snap back at 'cha.

If there's one thing I can sum up about what I learn in life, its : 
You can't please everybody so stop trying too hard , and just treasure the ones that are worth it.

I realized my mom told me many tales (that I actually believed) when I was a kid, in order to make me do something. Now that I'm older, I realize their all white lies and seriously illogic. Here are some stories I can still remember her telling me :

One time, she told me if you don't blow your really hot soup/water, steam will come out from your ears. I was like "weaaallly mama?" and she said yes, cause she saw steam coming out from my brother's ears once when he ate something hot.
REAL REASON : She didn't want me to burn my tongue when I drink hot soup/ water.

Another time, when we were eating rambutans/durians, she told me if I swallow the fruit's seed, the seed will grow and a plant will sprout from my head.
REAL REASON : She didn't want me to swallow the seed and choke.

Anyway, as years passed. I learn science and stuff in school and I realized the stories were all just plain.. weird. But I know, the real reason she told me the stories were cause she was just looking out for me. Who knows? Maybe in the future I'll be telling my kids stories too :)

It is a known fact that I truly enjoy shopping. Give me extra money, and I'll go out and get a new shirt or something. But don't get me wrong, I can control my urges. So take note i'm not a shopaholic, okay? However, I must confess that I was a shopaholic when I was in primary school. There was this teeny weeny bookshop that sells pretty things. As a girl, I use to go GAGA over the things they sell there. Eventhough now, I'd cringe thinking of how silly I was last time. 

I have impulse buys there quite a number of times. But probably the most huge and silly impulse buy I ever purchased there was this HUGE stack of 'calling cards' I bought! I mean, seriously? I still have them you know D: What to do with it anyway? Why I buy it in the first place horr?

Looks pretty, doesn't it?

Does it still look pretty to you?! Not to me. There's so many D:

What was I thinking when I bought this?

I hate cooking. (repeat that statement 100 times) Its more like, I fear cooking. I'm scared on the hot oil that jumps and pops. What if it hits my hand?! D: OUCH. Dammit, I'll never be good wife material now.

When I was younger, I used to take ballet and piano classes. One time, I even performed at IOI mall with my fellow ballerina friends. Aaaah, those were the days when I was flexible. Now I can't even do the split! I stopped when I was about to take my UPSR cause time was an issue, but I never regret taking ballet classes. It was a huge part of my childhood, really :)

As for piano classes, man, those practical exams really scare me. Waiting for your turn to come before you enter the room. Just the examiner and you.  In one room. I can feel my heart beating so hard it feels like its about to fly out of my chest. But the relief you feel when its all over is awesome. As for theory, its not so scary as practical. I can still recall my mom forcing me to memorize piano term like allegro, crescendo and more. P/S - I got distinction for my last theory test! :D Unlike ballet, I still continue playing the piano up till now. Its a great stress reliever :)

Initially I was suppose to make 25 facts about me but imma stop at 20. This post is getting way too long and besides, I'm not gonna reveal all my facts in one post, you've just gotta find out the rest yourself >:) Bahahaha. Anyway, here's one last fact for you : I hate chocolates that has nuts inside it. It totally spoils the taste don'cha think? I love chocolates that has jelly fruits in it d: DELISH!

I hope you've enjoyed discovering the side of Natasha you never knew. Finally I'm done with this post, took me ages to finish it cause I kept doing it halfway and saving it under drafts :p Till next time, BYE.

Scary make-up = Fame

One year ago, my friends and I organized a Halloween party for my neighbourhood. We had so much fun planning everything!! Thankfully, the event went smoothly. Real smooth. In fact, it went so smoothly that the RA invited us to organize one this year too! Too bad I was stuck in the midst of my finals went they gave that request, so I had to turn it down. Luckily, the RA was determined to have a Halloween party this year, so despite us refusing to organize one, they organized a Halloween party by themselves! YAY!

Thus, Danny The Vampire was born!

Bloody zombie, Green witch, Pink princess, Kitty cat, Vamp dude.

So yeah, on Tuesday November 9 2010, guess what? My friends and I appeared in Star Newspaper! I knneeeew it that besides ghouls and monsters, there was a few paparazzi among us! >:) Yup, I'm certain it was the scary make-up that did the trick of attracting them. Heheheh. Well, one problem though.. in my excitement to take a photo of it, I kinda lost the original newspaper piece (probably my maid already passed it to the local newspaper man for recycling) so I'm only left with the Online Star. Never mind lah, more modern, no?

and presenting....

TheStar online~!

and look, I was also featured in one picture on that article! Don't worry, its pretty easy to spot me. I was right in font y'know? :D

Yeaaahhh there we are, Danny, Amanda and I. Right in the middle. Totally centre of attraction, right?

errr.... not so.

Oh well, despite the huge crowd making us less visible, at least we still made it in the news. I felt like a celeb with all the camera lights flashing. B-) It was one helluva night, just chillin' with my girlfriends and lots and lots of... kids. But heck, it was still fun! Plus, I learnt one very, very, very importo lesson.

The older you are = The less candy you receive

A sad but true fact. I learnt it from experience! Everytime we reach in front of  a house and scream "trick or treat!" before I can even finish that line, the lil' kiddies all ran- wait, more like rampage their way towards the house and start shouting for candy. Thus, the older children, like me, will be left behind with this shock expression like this ---> O_O on my face. At last, when the crowd eventually clears and the big kids make it to the house, the people giving out candy will say this 'sorry, all the candy finish already' and then, my facial expression will go like this ----> D: WHY AM I BIG? WHYYY??

But it wasn't all that bad. There were some very nice little kids who donated some of their candies to me. Really! I was so touched :'D Such adorable little kids, I love them! And no, I'm not saying that just because they gave me part of their candy though that does count abit, it was cause they looked SO cute in their costumes.

Showing off my empty candy bag (mouth cencored cause braces too sexy :P)

Anyway, lucky thing I wasn't there for the candy. It was more for the heck of scaring my neighbourhood >:) A rule was we had to go all 'OOOHHHH' and 'BOOOO' that night. No kidding! So I had a blast screaming and yelling. Probably I ended up looking more like a spas cat then being scary though. Besides that, I think the walk/run around my neighbourhood was very beneficial. Beneficial in a sense that I'd probably lose weight (yay!) .....but then again, I'll probably gain weight later on from eating all the candy (noOoOo!).

Oh oh oh! Speaking of long walk/runs, my buddy Yi Jun broke her high heels from all that walking! See the thing is, I think Yi Jun and I were the hyper-est teens there that night. Running around all.. no wonder I got blisters that night. Eheheh, but anyway, Edwin ever the gentleman, gave her his shoes while he continued the walk in HER high heels instead! Hah, kidding! He continued the walk in his socks :) Heyy, it ryhmes! Walk.. sock.. see the similarity? Yes? No..? Never mind. Anyway, wasn't that sweet of him :D Looks like the sweetness of 'Mr. Your amazing just the way you are' is up for some competition >:) I meant Bruno Mars by the way.

Yi Jun (check out her shoes) on Dee's back as I point on

My girlfriends!

Yi Jun and I among the little kids! Yay!

And that's it! Sorry for my long overdue Halloween post guys :) It was a truly enjoyable and memorable night and everything you could hope for in a Halloween event. Oh, and the after-party which was held after the 'trick or treat walk' was fun too! I loveeee seeing the adults dressed up scarily, so sporting. Bravo!

P/S - If you think my post sounds abnormally hyper-er than it usually sounds, sorry, its late and I'm feeling restless and all.. so yeah. PEACE! x)

P/PS - I can't wait for the next years Halloween party! teeheehaaheeehaahahah!!

Lights, camera and.. Deepavali!


So feel free to be jealous, nyeh nyeh :P Anyway, since Deepavali is coming soon, I decided to blog about the most indian culture-ish thing I did this year :
...dancing to indian songs and performing it THREE times at each different places!!

and I loved every moment of it! After awhile, you get really addicted to the adrenaline you feel when performing and plus, the fame that comes afterwards isn't bad either :P It all started when I saw my ultra-talented friend, Keerthana, performing to an indian song in school one day. I WAS AMAZED. This girl can really shake it to them indian beats y'know. So I went all crazy chick on her and said "Keer! You have to let me dance with you next time okay?! Pleaseeeee~!" and she said, okay nat! and that was that. xD

So Performance numba 1 was when our school had Hari Canteen. The school needed performances from the students, so who else decided to volunteer? Non other than us girls, of course! Keerthana, Thiru, Me, Dee, Sofea and Nerin! Then the hard part came, getting guy partners for each of us. Migod. This, was, torture, I tell you. Who knew guys could be so shy?! We had to go trough lots of last-min pull outs and mini disasters before we finally got the permanent partners. But when we did, it was totally worth the trouble :)

Announcing the partners :
Jeremy + Keerthana, Matthew + Thiruselvii, Naveen + Me, Kajen + Dee, Lam Mun Hoh + Nerin, Joshua + Sofea = The awesomest dance crew ever!

Training was probably the funnest period for all of us. I can still recall our last training.. We'd dance away all our troubles and worries and err.. flabs while cracking jokes and having fun. Best part is, after dancing the real dance, we'd rock out to other songs after that. Watching Keer dance battle with some of the guys never fails to make me scream cheer! Until I got sore throat. -.- The song that we danced to was a mash-up of 4 indian songs. Hmmm.. I think it was Mere Piya, Some traditional song, Doom Machale and Shava shava. Ok, go ahead and laugh at my retarded spelling! Anyway, inspired by the name of the first song, our dance crew name was born! Its.. *drum roll please* .... MIKE VALOWSKY! Hah, Gotcha! Its The Meri Piya's.

The Mere Piya's + malay girls from other performance (my face is funny, so i cencored it xD)

Say shava shava! xD

Shakin' it, yo!

End of performance number 1. It was such a great day.. the teachers all love us. Ahahaha, really! :P After that, I thought that'd be the end of the Mere Piya's. And I was right, until one day, we got an invitation from Keer's neighbourhood to perform for their upcoming event. Thus, that bring us to our Perfomance numba 2 : Puteri 10 Malaysia Day.

This one, sadly, alot of the Meri Piya's had to pull out due to their busy schedule that day :( It was a mini calamity y'know. Nerin, Jeremy, Lam Mun Hoh and Joshua pulled out. So I rushed & rushed and at last, found replacements for them! Phew. Meet our latest additions to the Meri Piya's *drum roll* ...Amelia took over Nerin, Abishekh took over Jeremy, Ivan took over Joshua, and guess who took over Lam Mun Hoh? Non other than my BROTHER himself! :'D hahahahhahhaahah. Welcome to club, guys!

So in 2 short weeks, this new bunch of Meri Piya's trained hard and managed to successfully master the steps. I ish so proud of you people :') I still remember teaching ame, ivan and my bro the steps.. during my PUASA time! I show so much dedication, no? HAHAH. Training period part 2 was shorter this time, but just as fun as before. I really really really miss those session. And I still do!

All 6 guys + 1 girl (me) stuffed in the car on the way to Puteri 10 :/

Our performance at Puteri 10's Malaysia Day! 

And yes, I was wearing a cheongsam for that event. The organizers there wanted us to dress in a specific traditional outfit. So yeah... but oh well :) Oh my gosh, wanna know something? Its frickin' hard to dance in a cheongsam!! Sofea and I would know because we did it for that day. Its like, our hands can't really move freely up and down. And don't even get me started on the high slits on the cheongsam xD Impossible to squat properly, and unfortunetly, our dance HAS a few squats here and there! Dayum :P It was tough but we pulled it off with style I hope? x) The organizers gave us all free coupons to buy stuff. Yay! Sadly, my bro and I couldn't really stay for the event, we left shortly after performing. Boohoo.

Now this brings us to our last one, Performance numba 3 : Puteri 8 Tanglung Night! This one, 2 people couldn't make it, that is Kajen cause he has his spm trials around the corner (don't worry Kajen, I'm sure you'll do great!) and dee, I miss her! Luckily it was Jeremy who covered for Kajen cause he already knows the steps from our first performance so can skip the whole re-teaching process. xD and Keer's lil sis took over for Dee. Anyway, we didn't even need any training session for this performance cause by this time, all of us knew the steps by heart. We're like so fly like a G-6! I mean, we're so pro we're like popping ice like a blizzard! Okay, I shall stop my attempt to 'cool talk' now. Hahaha love that song, btw :P

Anyway, for this event, some of the Meri Piya's came early and we watched the performances in the evening. Our performance was scheduled at later at night. Or so we thought. The funnest part was the havoc last minute when our performance was so called gonna start earlier then planned, so all the girls + guys rushed home to fight for the bathroom first. Hahahah girls took longer, as usual. But only cause I think the guys didn't bath at all! EWWWW.

Despite being the last 2 girls left in the house, we still had time to camwhore! :P

Then, thiru and I rushhhhhhedddd to the padang only to find, we weren't late after all! :'D phew. My B-boy lil brother's performance was before ours so we were there to support him. And boy, was he amazing! Like, seriously. He really REALLY got the crowd all hyped up with his break-dancing steps and moves. I AM SO PROUD OF YOU DANNY :'D

Coming down from the stage with his present :) ahh, must have got his talent from his sis!

The guys with their dyed golden hair courtesy of Jeremy (that was their only accessory btw)

Meri Piya's rocking out on stage

I don't know what I'm doing o.O

Down the stage we go.. sigh. I'll miss performing :(

And with that, I'd like to end my post. Honestly, I find the indian culture truly amazing with their colourful-ness and music. Always loved it and always will! :) Happy Deepavali in advanced everyone!
