Hello 2013, I wasn’t expecting to see you so soon. Saying the year went by too fast is probably the understatement of the year. Given the fact that it is already a new year also makes my statement slightly invalid. Regardless, happy new year everybody. I hope you’ve got more of an idea on what to do than I do as of right now. Seriously…
Despite my ever overflowing pile of unread books, I have only managed slowly reading the first Game of Thrones book. It’s not that I’m not into it, just the mere mention of the Starks and Winterfell gets me so excited to read even more. It’s just I can’t seem to find the time to just read because I distract myself by watching TV shows such as Psych. Which is by far one of the coolest shows out there, I adore it. Just as I adore the fact that James Roday is dating Maggie Lawson in real life. Which means the ever adorable pair of Shawn and Juliette, LIVES. Nevertheless I need to stop procrastinating with TV shows and start procrastinating by reading my book. Take me into the world of Winterfell, King’s Landing and the drama from The Wall. Oh and of course the ever perfect Robb Stark. I must never forget him.
I’ve managed to injury myself again. Just the other day I bumped right into my bed post, really badly I might add. My leg hurts like a bitch and I feel a bruise coming on. After New Years Eve I found a really bad looking bruise on my knee, one small little circle. Probably hit something while I was on the roof top. I have like four other bruises, and a few more small ones from falling UP the stairs a couple of days ago. Last but not least, for some weird reason my index finger of my right hand hurts like a bitch as if I’ve sprained it. How? I have no clue. Oh did I mention that my left ankle feels slightly sprained too? WHERE DID I HURT MYSELF!? I am such a klutz it’s absolutely ridiculous.
As for things I’ve been doing lately, the only story to tell is how I spent my New Year’s Eve. The day itself went by relatively normal, at about five o’clock I went to Plaza Damas to meet up with Lyanna, our NYE plan was that we get a service apartment for the night so we just have somewhere to stay. It was a brilliant idea actually, because we didn’t have to worry about driving or finding a place to be, the insane crowd of the Curve or that stupid spray they end up spraying in our faces. It was such a simple and brilliant idea, it basically made our night so much more awesome. :D
After meeting up with Lyanna and buying some things in the store for us later, we headed back to the apartment. Which turned out to be really awesome and just the perfect place for all of us. It didn’t take long for Lana and Luen to arrive with more food and drinks. Funny thing actually when we went down to pick them up, Lyanna saw them and without planning anything the both of us yelled at the same time, “FOLLOW THE SOUND OF OUR VOICE!” I found it such a random moment, I get amused easily okay? Anyway, we went back to the apartment once again, where we literally just lazed around, talked, chilled, the other words used when friends hang out together and absolute randomness starts. There was this pretty funny moment when Lana was making the playlist that will take us into 2013, and Lyanna decided to blast her music as well to annoy Lana. It worked perfectly. The fact Lana made when she realized that was music clashing with hers, man I wished I took a picture. I did take a lot of hilarious pictures that night, I mean what’s a night without me there being sober and taking pictures. :P That night poor Luen was sick with food poisoning if I’m not mistaken (I blame Bali, you come home sick after visiting Bali…) and Lana was just tired so for a while we just sat lazing around the room like a bunch of lazy people until Jason and Justin called asking where to meet up. Thought in truth half of the reason we moved was because we wanted food. Actually come to think of it I’m a bit blurred out on if we went back to the apartment first, oh wait no we ate. Right. Excuse me, it’s late my mind’s getting fuzzy.
The coolest part about the apartment was that it had this AMAZING rooftop that wasn’t guarded at all, Lyanna and I checked it out way before anybody else got there so that was one of the things that got us really excited for midnight. Basically by the time we got back to the apartment, all that followed was complete and utter random stupidity. There was music blasted, people slowly getting drunk, us realizing it was way to early and that we had WAY to much time to kill, and me giving Luen his Christmas present. Which was a contract I wrote on how we shall equally share Lana. Given the circumstance of the recent change that has happened in our group, it really is a hilarious contract. Lana helped a lot writing it and I keep laughing whenever I reread it. There even is a section at the end that says, "This has been stamped and approved by Allah", aka Lyanna. For some reason "Pixie, Anal and Allah" is a thing now between Lana, Lyanna and I. I just like how for almost the rest of the night the term, “BREACH OF CONTRACT!” was being yelled out by everybody (mostly Justin in an attempt to get Lana to NOT use him as a leg rest… Weird boy) and there would be these hilarious moments where I would defend my contract and Jason would step in trying to defend Luen. But according to Luen I pretty much covered everything without leaving space for a loophole. I just forgot to give him more benefits than I should have… Opps? :P
The night slowly went by, with random topics being brought up like significant things that happened to us in 2012, Lana slowly got drunk on her bottle of wine while Jason and Justin left to go to a bar for a while. Which left Luen to nap, Lana to sober up and Lyanna to use my phone since our internet (despite the promise of the management….) WAS NOT WORKING. What crimes. Come to think of it, it was pretty funny how we had this up and down moments where we’d either be so hyper or so tired… I have this one video of the night where Jason, Lana and Luen are just doing the stupidest dance moves. It was absolutely hilarious. Anyway by the time it got close to midnight we decided to head upstairs to the rooftop, it was amazing up there. The complete darkness, the lights from the city, being able to see the Twin Towers… I adored it. So while we laid Lana on the floor, took some pictures of us making faces above her, I went into this “photography” mode where I wanted to try to find a way to capture the surrounds with the absence of my tripod. It wasn’t easy but I think I managed to get a few shots that weren’t completely blurry…… WOOT~ About ten minutes before midnight, Justin called saying he was on the way back so Lyanna and Luen went to get him, while they were gone I entertained myself by talking to a drunk Lana and laughing over her mumbles while taking pictures and exploring the vast emptiness of the rooftop. I am easily entertained to tell you the truth. When the others returned we settled for sitting on the outer spot of the roof and just waiting for midnight to roll by.
Now since we didn’t actually have a countdown, we honestly had no clue when New Years hit. But the fireworks did help. All ten different one of them. IT WAS AMAZING. The fact that we were sitting on a roof top, enjoying each others company, watching countless of fireworks exploding from all corners, including finally after years of living in Malaysia seeing the fireworks at KLCC, and just the fact that despite whatever shit that happens in our lives, we managed to spend New Years Eve together like we’ve done for the past two (three including this) years. I loved it. I know, I’m being ridiculously sappy right now but it’s the truth. It was awesome, maybe it was the rooftop, maybe it was just my love for fireworks but I just really enjoyed how we were all together that night. I had a conversation with Luen the other day, and he brought it to my attention that we’re actually a very tight knit gang. We may have a lot of new extended members coming in from time to time but in the end it’ll always end up being the five of us and Jason, Sandra, Izzul and Josh. I like it though. Anyway, midnight hit, we wished everybody a big happy New Year while literally shouting it off the roof tops. Justin being the drunktart he was that night went around peeing off the building, racing Luen for god knows what reason and scaring the fuck out of Lyanna and I when he wanted to go to the edge of the building because "Luen was doing it too! [insert him whining *literally* here]" The fact was, Luen wasn’t drunk. Justin was soooo gone, so Lyanna and I nearly had a heart attack when he tried to follow Luen. What else happened? Hmm… Well apart from enjoying the countless fireworks nothing much. After that we went back to the room where we ate… so much junk food. We literally sat all together on the couch passing the chips, apple pie and chocolates to each other, snacking like a bunch of fat asses. Hahahahahaha. It was fun. After a bit Lyanna got really cold so Lana and I went into organize mode and made her shower and everything. Wrapped her up in bundles of clothes and blanket and pillows, though we actually only went to bed at like 3am. Or 4 in my case because I just couldn’t sleep. I think I wanted to do something more but everybody was crash dead. I didn’t actually sleep much to tell you the truth, I kept waking up to make sure Lyanna was okay. I remember waking at at 6:40ish, close to seven but nobody else was moving so I just used my phone for a bit before falling asleep again. Woke up close to 7:30 again being fully awake now, and found out Lana and Luen were freezing the entire night and they themselves barely slept. Lyanna was okay but she started shivering badly again so as Luen stared at awe because of how organized Lana and I got sorting out shit and calling Lyanna’s mum and all, we got the room cleaned so Lyanna could be picked up by her mum. By 9 something everybody was cranky, tired and ready to sleep but we still had to send Lyanna off. When that was done we went back to the apartment and just crashed. Until about 10:30 for me. Then I fell asleep again and woke up at about 11:30, got ready to leave and headed for home. Not that Lana and Luen remembered much they were dazed with sleep. Hahahaha.
I wanted to be home before noon because my family and I have this little tradition (or maybe my dad and I) to watch CNN’s coverage of New York’s new years eve. The one with Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin. We’ve been watching it for as long as I can remember and I just couldn’t miss it. I mean I didn’t have to watch everything, but I needed to be there for midnight. It was almost like celebrating New Years again. Plus, Kathy Griffin’s Taylor Swift basing this (or last actually) year was brilliant. So yes that was basically my NYE story. That and how I walked around like a zombie the rest of New Years Day. :P
So it’s a new year and I am once again scared shitless, as I’ve previously said. Majority of my days have been spent getting shit together and figuring out things. My mums birthday on the 13th was what we declared the official end of Christmas for us, since we extended it by a week. It’s always sad to see the lights come down but I did organize my room really nicely after sorting out all my gifts. I actually just realized how many books I have. God I can’t wait to have my own personal library one day. :’) I’ve attempted to catch up on my TV shows. Still way behind. Obsessed with Psych, can’t get enough of it. So behind my Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl. On a side note the Golden Globes has passed and gone and as usual I’ve spent entertaining myself with the gorgeous dresses and funny jokes any award show has, this year was rather entertaining because Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted it. I just actually saw a picture of Victoria Justice and damn. That girl looked good. Screw them all and their flawless beauty. Oh what am I doing with my life. Hahahah as for hang outs of the ‘13 well… During the first week of January, Lana, Luen and I took a mini trip to Valencia to visit the still sick Lyanna. We spent a few hours there just talking and catching up. That was really nice. Later that night we all went to Rasta where we saw Izzul as well. Funny enough there was actually a ten minute conversation about penis names. No idea how that came up, most probably because of Luen and Izzul but nevertheless it was hilarious listening to all the name ideas. The couple of days later on Tuesday if I’m not mistaken I spent the day with Luen because we realllyyyy wanted to watch The Hobbit. It was actually pretty funny, the previous night he kept giving me names of people to invite and everybody I asked couldn’t come. So it ended up just being the two of us but it was a fun. After buying tickets and making jokes about how we’ll tell Lana about getting couple seats (we didn’t Lana) or something that would make her jealous because that silly girl had to post on my wall the previous night that she had spies and she’d know if I touch him. Oh God Lana, clingy much? :P Anyway to kill time we sat at Embershoppe having a very interesting conversation about religion and a few other things, eventually it was time for the movie… Which slowly made me regret asking Luen to go watch a movie with me seeing as how he loudly entered the theater questing how I knew where our seats were, if I had the bong so we could smoke up and some other shit. Oh Luen. Sweet sweet embarrassing Luen.
During the movie we sat in silence, it was a given the movie was that amazing and I didn’t want it to end despite it being nearly three hours long. IT WAS SO GOOD. They perfectly connected this movie to the Lord of the Ring movies and it was so awesome seeing more of a background story on the dwarfs. In fact after the amazing movie (and the excitement over them going to Rivendell because the Elves are awesome) Luen and I spent a really long time just discussing the movie and matching it up to the books and the other movies like the LOTR dorks we are. Hahahaha. It was hilarious. Anyway after that I ended up having to help Luen shop for socks no less and let me tell you, Luen is the pickiest shopper ever! -.-’ After getting socks we went to go get him some new shirts and not only did he spend ten or more minutes straight speaking in an obnoxious Malay accent (the ones where English speaking people try to speak but they have a serious accent to it) but he also said no to half of the things I picked up because they were too colorful, weird or something else. Eventually we settled on three long sleeve shirts in mild colors though he insisted that two of them had to be L. Even though it looked so baggy on him, he said he wanted to dress like a hobo for college. Oh boy. Hahahahahaha. Overall it was still a hilarious experience, despite his pickiness. We killed more time by sitting at Starbucks just talking until we had to head home for dinner so yes, day well spent. Plus I got to watch The Hobbit so that was brilliant.
What else did I do? Well last week Luen, Lana, Lyanna, Jason, Sandra and I hung out at Kiara Park. We were the awesome kids with the fort (aka Beer Fort) and Sandra even brought along Su-Yen who I haven’t seen in ages. She’s my German buddy since we’re the same mix. Hahaha we even celebrate Christmas rather similarly. It was an awesome night, Sandra brought her brother Oscar who we so nicely made fun a lot. Or laughed at her constantly telling him to shut up. They have such an odd relationship it’s hilarious. To be honest the entire night was just everybody being drunktarts, when we’re Beer Fort we just sit there together, drinking (them not me), listening to music, talking about random shit and snacking on chips (me… majority of the times). So it was nice. Especially when we started taking pictures. The amount of blackmail I now I have. Hahahahaha. Or when Oscar decided to chase a cat who ran away from him (obviously) so he showed it his middle finger. Smooth. Or when Luen got so wasted that he entered sappy mode. Which is basically him going around telling everybody that he loved them and how he’s so happy to have them in his life. It’s hilarious. I remember when he called me over, he hugged me and said he loved me and that I was awesome and blahblahblah and so I hugged him back and than the stupid idiot went, "Don’t touch me! I’m Lana’s!" Hahahahahaha. Or when he was talking more about how awesome I was (oh the flattery) and he was like "I’m going to kiss your cheek now. Wait… LANA CAN I KISS PIXIE’S CHEEK!?" Hahahahahahahahahahaah. It was so amusing. How he kept switching from being sappy or turning to Lana and being even sappier. I was so amused, these are the moments where whoever you are, you’ll get a huge ego boost because Luen will find some way to compliment you. By close to midnight we decided we were all hungry so we went to Rasta to eat. The poor guy taking our orders. It was just Lana, Lyanna, Luen and I because the others were still in the other car and here we were like ordering seven dishes and loads more drinks. He thought we were eating everything. Oh his face was priceless. To make matters more hilarious, Oscar suddenly felt tipsy after claiming the beer wasn’t hitting him the whole night, he spent majority of the night trying to tell Lyanna and I apart because we apparently "look so alike" that he kept mixing us up. Then for some reason at Rasta Lana said something that got him saying that I’m really pretty and if I were fourteen he’d date me. So we laughed over that but it got weird when tipsy him reached out for my hand and said, "PIXIE YOU’RE SO HOT!" I obviously leaned to Lyanna for support and went for my typical, "I’m gay" respond which Lyanna so graciously grabbed my boob for. Thanks man. :P After that he had this insane theory that squeezing lime in your ear helps make it go away. So he asked for lime and got lemon and Sandra offered to do it. Yeah that lasted like five seconds before he started screaming bloody murder over how much it burned. We being the mature people we are all burst out laughing at his agony, telling him how stupid he was and just laughing some more when he kept complaining about the pain. Sandra being the lovely sister she was, told him to suck it up and eat. And Jason being cranky and wanting to sleep went into brutal father mode and started saying shit like, "If you keep whining like that I’ll leave you behind." And then Lyanna decided to join in and be the brutal mother saying things like, “If it doesn’t hurt than eat” and if he wanted she’ll squeeze lemon in the other ear so it’ll even it out. It was hilarious and we all couldn’t stop laughing. In fact we probably looked like such assholes because here he was screaming in pain and all we did was laugh even more. Hahahahhahaha. Overall it was a good night though.
Apart from seeing the Twins, Adrees and Fitri last night for a short moment as I rescued Jia and gave her the present I got for her, her lovely new wombat stuff toy. That is all that has been happening lately. Now if you’d excuse me, it’s midnight and I have TVD episodes to catch up too. :P
Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur. Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr purr purr! <3
2013 Resolution: Get better at photography, you have the gear now get talented. :P
I like those randoms moments walking along the beach as it slowly turns to night.
Don’t mind me, I’m just causally waiting for it to snow. Soon please?
