It was a weekend like no other!

I have never had a huge, huge, huge crush and fond of any particular band-well not after Backstreet Boys anyway. But came 2007, and my world was rocked with M79. That wasn't their first single, but that song was the first one I heard-there was this awesome radio that played top of the top indie songs which I guess kind of turned my music genre, my eyes were finally opened! And call me backwards, but back then I knew nothing about MP3s downloading, so what I did was open up youtube and record the song with the voice recorder. Yup, that's right!
But it wasn't until the late 2008 that I really thought that I should put my mind into Vampire Weekend, and I loved everything about it. Their first album was beyond incredible, from Mansard Roof to Kids Don't Stand a Chance. I loved the music videos, especially A Punk, and it's pronounced ay punk rather than just a punk, at least that's how Ezra always says it.
2 years later, the most anticipated album arrived. So I had to get it, right? And by the time it was released, I was in Seattle so there was no reason for me not to get one. And I loved it very much! From Horchata to I Think Ur A Contra.  I was so happy about Horchata, I showed it to a friend of mine and she said "that guy sings weird" whatever bitch, you're weird!
Up until August 2010, never in my wildest dream did I think about seeing the guys live. All I could think about was maybe if I was in US, I could catch some music festivals, but it was closer to impossible than to likely to happen. But Vampire Weekend said that I didn't have to spend all the money for the flights, for the festival tickets, and for the impossible-to-spare-time. Instead they said "I'll come to you, and forget about those dreams, because they're coming true!" Waaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!! And I said to myself, no matter what, I'm gonna be there! And seriously, that "no matter what, I'm gonna be there" actually happened to me. The guys were scheduled to perform on Sunday, and three days before which was Thursday, I had an accident. I fell over, and kinda cracked my foot bone. But I still must go!
So I did anyway, and I stayed at my uncle and auntie's house for two days. And had a blast, and one rocking weekend!

Too bad I didn't get a shot of C.T.

I Am A Total Loser

I think I didn't do good enough in my life, it's like a warning to be more thankful. I'm superstitious like that.
The night before, I just installed a new modem to my computer in the living room. I was so happy about it, I was in the internet until midnight. I got sleepy, and because I was lazy, I left the old modem inside a plastic bag (that's one bad thing) on the floor. The next morning, I felt like I needed to check my email before taking a bath, so I did. So I was done with my mail checking, then I got up-this all felt like a second-I stepped on the plastic bag that I left on the floor, then I slipped or maybe slid until I hit the wall, then I fell over, my head hit the sofa, my right foot-which hit the wall- was bent inside, and my right knee bumped to my lower left knee. I don't know which one actually happened first, for all I know, the pains were there.
So I got up, I had en enormous feeling of pain in my foot, and took a shower walking with a limp. I though maybe it was just a sprain or something like that, I said to myself, "I'm gonna go to that man who fixes these kinds of things" which my mum knows.
I went to campus, I couldn't walk fast, and the pain was horrible! I felt like something sharp is sticking into my outer side of my right foot. It was nothing like sprain. Then after a long walk from the campus entrance to the my building which is like in the deepest end of the campus, I finally settled in and sat with my friend. What I didn't realize was the pain in my lower left knee. When I looked at it, it was like a balled up sock that was stuck inside my pants. It was huge!!
So later that night I came to that guy's place, and he said that there was a teeny-tiny fracture 5th metatarsal bone. And what he did was, pulling, pressing, twisting my foot here and there to get the fractured bone realigned. It was like magic! And seriously the pain reduced. Done with that, the guy tried to fix the bruised and swollen part of my left leg by massaging it. I know massage sounds fancy, but this one wasn't. I wasn't crying, I was sort of laughing in pain, and he wrapped it with some ginger liquid.
This was totally new to me.
This is the bruised leg, it's shrunk.

O, Frozen Yogurt. Why aren't you tasty?

As much as it is healthy, as much as it is trendy, as much as it is yogurt, I don't like it. As a matter of fact, I dread it. Why? Why you ask me? Come on! Don't call it yogurt if it has the texture of Ice Cream. But I can't call it Ice Cream either since it's got no taste in it (dull!). So let's just figure out a whole new name for it since I love sweet and fatty yogurt so much, I don't wanna destroy the whole kingdom of yogurt by putting this so-called healthy food in the middle. And for God's sake, for a fermented milk dessert- and to remind you, that it's not tasty as well - it costs a fortune!
So I guess here, this fro-yo is all about trend and image. Because seriously, nobody cares about fatty food. One minute they're eating fro-yos, they're eating Padang food the next.
Fuck you!

I should call it good times in the bad times.
