Live While We're Young

I feel like cougar for this entry but what the heck. Yes, it is about one Direction  (again!). I love love love their new video Live While We're Young (LWWY) and they never look so hot especially Zayn Malik. He is looking so hot and playful in the video seriously.

The video is about them having fun in same sort of camp and well, live while they're young. The song is catchy and fun like the summer anthem and the the images are beautiful and vivid. Supposedly, they will lead the video around October but somehow have to show it early as the video leaked online. I do watch the "illegal leaked". Sorry boys.

So far the video has over 14 millions view on YouTube since 2 days ago and I think I do contribute around 10 of the views.

So here is the video, let's go crazy crazy crazy for this video!

P/s: About Zayn cute and hot thing, please go to 1:42, 2:05 and 2:13 of the video

Aren't you to old to watch cartoons? Yes, yes I am

Yes, I love cartoons, even when I became adult and supposed to be somebody's mom. I know I' m not supposed to watch or even like cartoons anymore but just face it, cartoons rocks. That is why I subscribe to Disney, Nickelodeon channels.  So here are three of my favourite cartoons that I love to watch .

1. Phineas and Ferb (Disney Channel, 6pm)

The series follows Phineas Flynn and his English stepbrother Ferb Fletcher on summer vacation. Every day, the boys embark on some grand new project, which annoys their controlling sister, Candace, who frequently tries to reveal their shenanigans to the boys' mother, Linda Flynn-Fletcher, and less frequently to their father, Lawrence Fletcher. Plot almost always features Perry the Platypus working as a spy ("Agent P") for the OWCA (Organization Without a Cool Acronym), to fight an evil scientist named Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz. However, Dr. Doofenshmirtz, or Doof as he refers to himself, feels the need to assert his evilness. The two plots intersect at the end to erase all traces of the boys' project just before Candace can show it to their mother. This usually leaves Candace very frustrated.

I love it because the brothers are so creative and can do everything that they wanted to. Phineas will do most of talking while Ferb is man of work. Believe it or not, they have awesome original songs in every episodes. My favourite songs would be "Summer Belongs to You" "Gitchee Gitchee Goo", "You Snuck Your Way Right Into My Heart" "Disco Miniature Golfing Queen" and of course "A-g-l-e-t".  

I think I already watched most of the episodes (3 seasons) as the series kept repeating over and over again but still it is fun to watch.

2. Spongebob Squarepants (Nickelodeon, 10pm)

Oh come on, seriously, who doesn't like this cartoon. The theme song is catchy and the series is awesome. I like Spongebob because he is the most positive people I know (virtually). His motto "I'm Ready" is a good catchphrase when we are too lazy to wake up to go to work. He loves his job (although with crappy boss) and his friends (Patrick is so adorable) and of course Gary, his pet. One of my favourite episodes would be "Wormy" where Spongebob and Patrick babysit for Sandy's caterpillar that become butterfly. It was just so funny. Another one would be "SpongeBob Meets the Strangler" where SpongeBob tattles on the "Tattle-tale Strangler", a criminal who promises to strangle anyone who reports on him and his crimes. 

For whatever reason, I also loves Plankton although he always fail to steal the crabby patty formula. His determination is to be admired for. Believe it or not, he and Mr. Krabs used to be best friend. I also love the relationship between Spongebob and Patrick. They are BFF for life!

3. Penguin of Madagascar (Nickelodeon, 8pm)

The show has nine characters from animated film Madagascar: The penguins Skipper, Kowalski, Private , and Rico; the lemurs King Julien , Maurice and Mort. The penguins are adorable especially Private. I love how they always have plans and can fight enemies fiercely. Their have paramilitary-like missions to protect their home in the Central Park Zoo and also has to deal with with problems caused, or made worse, by King Julien XIII (a ring-tailed lemur), Maurice (an aye-aye), and Mort (a mouse lemur). And of course, Mort is so cute.

Sometimes when I watch penguins in the zoo, I just wonder whether the leader will said "Just smile and wave, boys. Smile and wave..."haha

Last time I use to loves Voltron, He-Man, Thundercat and Heatcliff. Until know I still read comic strips in the newspaper and my favourite is NST's Baby Blues. What to say, I'm just young at heart.

Europe; Project Update

Well, it has been quite long since I updated my plan to Europe. According to my plan, I'm supposed to buy flight ticket tomorrow at Matta Fair but it ain't going to happen yet. No, not because I cancelled or postponed the project simply because I still made up my mind where should I enter the Europe continent.

You see, my little brother who just got engaged last week will go to UK to pursue his Phd with his fiance later wife next year. No, I'm not crashing their honeymoon but since they will be there anywhere, so why don't I took this opportunity to visit them. The problem is, my bro doesn't know when he will be able to get there and where. He got unofficial offer from 3 universities, Leeds, Birmingham and perhaps Edinburgh. Secretly, I wish he choose Scotland then I can visit him there and see the vast landscape and to visit Lochness Monster hehe. The other problem is, he doesn't know when he can get there, I mean it depends on his university and budget from government. But he plan to get there in March 2013.

In addition, as I didn't manage to get travel buddy so I have no choice but to go with Kelana Convoy. Since I will be alone and this is my first time to Europe, I will be more safe and comfortable to travel in group and it is around my budget. Perhaps, it is a good way to know more people who has passion to travel as you do
 ;-). They only just come up with the 2013 tour dates this week and at first I plan to go on March or April but my brother and I has talked it would be better for me to go in May since we are going to have his wedding reception between Feb - Apr 2013 (because of unsure dates to fly).

I choose spring dates as I wanted to visit Keukonhof ( I love Tulips) and choose the tour 'Highlights of Europe' with 9 days to visit 5 countries. The other tour, "Conquest of Europe' is quite exciting, visiting 9 countries in 16 days. However, as I have limited annual leave, I budgeted to travel in 16 days, 9 days with Kelana Convoy and the rest is for me to visit my dream Neuchwanstein castle in Fussen, go to Bath, visiting my brother and shopping till I drop in London. So, I know where is the point I want to get out from Europe, which is London.

I just thinking whether I should enter from Munich and visit the castle then back to London for the tour or I should get in from London, visit my brother and go the Fussen come back and join the tour? To enter from Munich is much more cheaper from London as London airport tax quite expensive but London is the mother of transportation where you can get anywhere from there. I f I enter from London and get out from Europe from Munich, I have to bring a lot of bags to travel with me as I said before I want to shop a lot in London. It will be hassle for me to take train or flight with all shopping items.

I also wanted to stay in London for more days as I plan to visit the usual attractions such as London Eye, Westminister Abbey and also set aside one day to visit a countryside. In my mind it would be whether Bath (I saw Samantha Brown visit here) which is 90 minutes from London, or Oxford or Canterbury which I always dream about, you know seeing their drama such as Downtown Abbey or film such as Pride and Prejudice. I also wanted to see medieval castles so as for now I still do some researching. I wanted to feel the breeze of countryside while sipping English Tea and eat some scorns while looking at the vast greenery lush and white cotton sheep running in the background. Hmmmm

Still I got around 8 months to plan for my dream trip and I hope everything will be real soon. Can't wait!

I wish to see the sunset here
How wonderful is this?
