The (Not So) Messy Hairdo

In Randomness, Silly Posts on November 21, 2007 at 1:21 am

This post goes out to all those trendy hairstylists out there.

I just need to vent on this and ask you guys one very important thing that’s been bugging me for years now.  And it’s funny that the trigger for this fashion question is actually a scene from the hit series “Scrubs”. Yeah, I’ve been reminiscing the glorious first season by watching the DVDs and there’s this one scene where Dr. Cox pats J.D.’s head and complained on how much J.D. uses hair styling products and J.D. says he doesn’t.  He even claimed that his hair naturally looks like that.

Now the question is:

Who started the “messy” hairdo with so-called “texturizing wax” on so-called “celebrities” and then charge “regular” people to pay a “shitload” to be “messed up“?

To Whom It May Concern

In Ultimate Sarcasm on November 12, 2007 at 12:01 pm

I don’t like being angry.  So I retracted the previous post because I hate my blog adorned by swearwords.  But the message is clear.  I don’t welcome stupid people in this blog.

Good day to all.

Funny Typo :D

In Giggle To This! on November 9, 2007 at 11:56 am

I’m not a fan of posting on mailing lists albeit the member status of so many.  But since this morning I’ve been thinking on how to put a comment on a thread submitted by one of my ex-colleague without sounding rude or insensitive.  Why am I thinking about this?  I’m still all giggly because apparently the groom-to-be punched a typo that brought a totally different meaning of the invitation (and would probably attract different people for different reasons).


I imagine it would be one heckuva wedding! LOL.

Beauty is Nothing Without Brain

In Giggle To This!, Video Post on November 7, 2007 at 5:30 pm

I got hate e-mails when I posted the Nasi Babi video in my Indonesian blog because it’s considered racist and such. By all means, dudes. Call it what you want, but I call it funny and I was NOT being racist. And now I’m posting another video, which I am almost sure to get comments (hopefully not hateful ones) from blonde girls. Hate the ones who made this ad, girls. I’m just the one sharing the laugh. Hahahahkahakhkakk!

Adorable Airline Ad!

In Giggle To This!, Me Likey, Video Post on November 7, 2007 at 4:56 pm

I was searching YouTube for inspirations on my work assignment and stumbled upon this British Caledonian Airlines ad dated way back from 1982. For you (old) Brits, this might not be a new thing, but for me this is so very very cute! I jotted down the lyric so we can all sing along! Yippeeee!

Eastern girls are hip
I really dig the style they wear
And American girls with the way they talk
They knock me out when I fly there!

Latin stewardesses really make you feel alright
And the German girls really do their best
To keep the passengers warm at night

I’ve been all around this great big world
And I’ve flown with all kinds of girls
But I can’t wait to get back to Gatwick
To the cutest girls in the world

I wish they all could be Caledonian
I wish they all could be Caledonian
I wish they all could be Caledonian girls!

Now if that isn’t adorable, I don’t know what is! 😀

When Men Fall Sick

In Giggle To This!, Mushy :) on November 6, 2007 at 12:23 am

I used to think men, when they fall sick, tend to get all macho and wouldn’t let anybody know that they have a forty-degrees fever and act as normal as they could.  Well at least that’s how Hollywood portrays its on-screen heroes.

It’s clear that my dad isn’t a Hollywood hero.

He’s the type of guy who’d ask for tissues from everybody when the flu bug bites.  Thank God for his good health, this doesn’t come often.  But when those times of the year come, he’s sure to make everybody around the house take very good care of him, the sickie.

In Daily Annoyance on November 5, 2007 at 5:08 pm

And while we’re at it, I just want to scream something out loud to all non-Indonesians out there:

Our language is the BAHASA INDONESIA, people! NOT just BAHASA!

I couldn’t help but feel very irritated whenever I come across this common mistake. Bahasa is Indonesian for “Language”. It’s pretty annoying to hear somebody say: “Yeah I don’t speak Bahasa.” Bahasa WHAT, exactly? It’s like saying “Yeah I don’t speak Language.” Stupid, isn’t it? The safer way is to say “No, I don’t speak Indonesian.” Because we are Indonesian and we have a language called the Indonesian language or Bahasa Indonesia.

Should you decide to refer to our language using the Bahasa term, you might as well add ‘Indonesia‘ at the end. It makes more sense and it’s the right way to say it.


On “Bridge-Blogging”

In Randomness, Silly Posts on November 5, 2007 at 4:48 pm

I blogwalked around today and ended up at one of my favorite blogs on the blogosphere, Mr. Unspun’s. He wrote this article, and I was tickled to say something about the new bridge blogging thing.

So the reason I started this English blog is because I’ve got quite a few complaints from my readers in my old blog. Some of them e-mailed me and said things like “Why do you write in English nowadays? We can’t understand you” or some more mean stuff like: “Do you really know what you are? Indonesian, right? So write in Indonesian!”

Amazingly Appalling

In My Amazing Race Asia Addiction, Sarcasm on November 2, 2007 at 1:37 am

So it’s that time of the year again, when I wouldn’t be able to be disturbed on Thursday nights.  I’d be glued to my TV set to watch the contestants of The Amazing Race Asia get their gears on and race around the world, while drooling over the ever so handsome Allan Wu.

Or so I thought.

I just finished watching the “Racers Revealed” premier episode of the Amazing Race Asia season two and felt outrageously appalled seeing the contestants lineup.  Why?  Let’s see.
