Horror Movies... Phew!

Good morning (or afternoon, or evening) people!

I am not one to watch a horror movie (any horror movies) without closing my eyes in between the scenes using my hands, or a pillow, or a blanket. I was never known for my bravery (cause I have none - get it?). However, I'd like to get over this cowardice (if I could - haha).

I'm currently at my sister's, helping out with her newly established business (rice - come and buy some!). So, during the few weeks I've been here, I've been challenged (mentally) with horror movies at most nights by my nephew and nieces (Yes - I am an aunt who has nephews and nieces almost my age).

I've remembered the first movie we've watched while I was here.... It was "Sinister".

As my first horror movie in a long time, I've really tried to 'act' brave, but it wasn't a really pleasant experience. I end up dreaming about the movie at midnight (nightmare), though it was an alternate version of it, with me as a side actress who was killed in action (haha).

Then, a stream of horror movies followed suit after that:









You could probably guess my posture while watching most of these movies:

Our general positions in front of the TV (or laptop).

I don't know if I'm braver now, or if the last movie I've watched was just a really lousy horror movie. However, I found 'Insidious' to be more funny than scary (yay me!).

Maybe... it has something to do with us relating the culprits in each movies with each of us, and to our surroundings (funnily). There's 'Mr. Boogie' in the 'Sinister', 'Batsheba', 'Rory', and 'Annabelle' in 'The Conjuring', 'Jonah' in 'Haunting in Connecticut', 'Mr. Gordy' in 'Haunting in Connecticut 2', 'Emily Rose' in the 'Exorcism of Emily Rose', 'Abyzou' in the 'Possession', 'The Breaker', etc. in '13 Ghosts', 'Mama' in 'Mama', and unknown entities in 'Insidious'.

There were times when things happened at home that could scare us out of our wits, but when morning comes, things can always be explained to senses.

There was that night when the lamp above the stairs suddenly flickered in the middle of the night. I opened my eyes to see it flickered for a while, then immediately closed my lids as tight as possible. That way, I won't be seeing things that I might've just imagined. I'm safe as long as I'm under the cover (haha).

There was also that other night when the lamp inside the car I was driving suddenly flickered. Thank God, 2 of my nieces were inside with me, or I would've step hard on the accelerator and speed home (haha).

Anyway, I'm sure that most of you are way braver than me. Shame on me (haha). I'll catch up on you soon!

It's not as easy...

I bid you "Hello!", fellow earthlings.

It has been so long... in fact, it has been too long since I've last posted anything on this humble little blog-site of mine. I've always thought that I'd be able to type/share as much posts as I wanted after I've dealt with all my study-related matters.

How wrong I was.

It's not as easy as I thought to actually click on the 'new post' button, and start typing away. It's as if I've lost my mojo, my groove, my inspiration - or whatever you'd normally call it - to blog. It's depressing to be in this situation, sometimes. I'd sit there, somewhere, watching something, anything... and my mind will wander about every little possibilities. If I had actually wrote down these 'stuffs' playing in my mind, I could probably stand a chance of publishing my own book(s).

Who knows?

So... how have you been?

Pardon me. Where's my manners? I should have asked this early on... but, there you have it. How are you? I'm being such an anti-social, aren't I? Blame it on the speed of the internet. Especially, at my humble little village. The internet is close to being nonexistent! How is that still possible? It's the.... 21st (?) century! Internet should be available everywhere - high on top of the mountain, deep inside the forest!

Anyway, it's midnight now and I'm in serious need of my beauty sleep. However, there's so much to blog about! I'll hold these thoughts, and hope to be more inspired to blog more tomorrow... or the day after tomorrow... or someday.

Hah! Who am I kidding?

Take care for now!

Spread the love, people :)

Do you know how good it feels to do something good to another?

It feels SO GOOD!

Anyway, it's Valentine's Day today. I'm not really sure of the real fact, but one legend told the story of a priest called Valentine who served a long time ago in Rome. Apparently, when the emperor during that time decided that single men are better soldiers as to compared with those with wives, and families, he banned marriage for young men. This was obviously a ridiculous injustice. So, Valentine, set against the decree of the emperor decided to ignore him, and continued to wed young lovers in secret. Soon when this matter was discovered, the emperor ordered Valentine a death sentence.

It's just a legend, so don't hold to that. 

For me personally, I think of Valentine's day as a day to remember that love prevails. It's true that every day can be a celebration of love, but people tends to put more effort if we actually set a date on it. So, why not Valentine's? It even got a nice story to it.

I was supposed to do a charity with few friends from the Christian Union today. They've bought a 1000 gift hearts to give to random strangers on the street with bible verses on them. Sadly, due to some last minute changes in my timetable, I will not be free until after 2 pm  so I wasn't able to join them for this good deed. I was really sad, but I won't fret much. It was amazing enough that they were able to do such nice things for the sake of love today.

Then, in the afternoon, when I was about to go back home, a friend of mine who's finally picking up Christianity again after abandoning it for a very long time, told me that she's going to a Bible study session, and asked if I wanted to come along.

I said "Yes!".

We had a really good read, and discussion on Luke 7:36-50. It really touches me how this sinner of a prostitute was able to have so much faith in Jesus, believing that she'll be forgiven even after the enormous sin that she bear. Added to the faith is an extravagant devotion towards Jesus, and I can't even compare to her. In a way, I was celebrating Valentine's day by learning about this faith, and love towards Jesus. It was amazing.

Later that evening, I went to a couple of friends' flat, and had a really good, pancake date with one more of their flatmates. One whom I've just gotten to know that night. (p/s; my Canadian guy friend made the pancake for us. It was like "pancake 101 with insert name here"). Then, after a couple of hours lounging at their flat, I went to an International Pudding Party organized by the Christian Union. I was an hour late, but I got to chat with some old and new friends during the party. (I had enough pancake, so I didn't help myself for any puddings). It was a good social, and at the same time, a good sharing of Jesus, and the mission's week that's currently ongoing in my university.

Finally, on my way home, I've stopped by a convenient store to withdraw some cash, and planned to buy some foods for myself. Then, I saw this homeless guy, sitting by the door with his dog.

It was such a sight...

Having bought some foods, I went out of the store, and stopped for a while to look at him. Thinking that I had received so much love for the day, I handed him the plastic bag that I was holding, with all the foods I've just bought inside. I guess, Jesus was driving me to spread some love tonight, and guess what? I felt so good! It was such a satisfying feeling to be able to do something nice for a change.

Better, when it's because of Jesus.

If you are feeling down anytime later, try to do something good to another. It doesn't have to be something big, but it'll give you so much satisfaction. It's a good therapy. It works for me!

I'd really love to write a couple or so blog entries right now, but I've too much work, that I'm feeling guilty once I've started spending more time writing on my blog rather than writing on my thesis.
I'll be free in June. Hope to write more then. Take care everybody :)

Traveling, and spending all my ££

I went for a couple of one week's vacation during the holiday, so I'm officially broke. However, I'd like to update on my traveled and dusted list.

1) Munich, Germany
2) Salzburg, Austria
3) Albstadt, Germany
4) Feldberg (Black Forest), Germany
5) Barcelona, Spain
6) Granada, Spain
7) Cordoba, Spain
8) Sevilla, Spain
9) Malaga, Spain

I'm happy to be able to travel to all these places while I still can, but I obviously have to face the aftermath.

1) Less time to study and do my research
2) Less money to shop

It's a new year, so we may not know what's waiting ahead of us. I can't really wish all of you a "happy" new year, since regardless of anything, it's not possible of being happy throughout every seconds, days, weeks, or months on this new year. However, I can wish these;

May we all be treated nicely by the years ahead of us. May we survived each morning to see the smile of our loved ones. May we remember God all the time. May we learn how to be happy at little things that occur in our daily lives.

Peace :)

(30DBC) Day 30- A photograph of town/city you lived in.

Jambatan Tamparuli.

This is a very famous bridge at the town I lived in. It's not even that amazing of a structure, but it has a song to it called exactly as it is; "Jambatan Tamparuli".

(30DBC) Day 29- If I were to fall for my neighbor, I would..


Though, if we are just talking hypothetically, I would... I would not fall for my neighbor! It's just impossible. I couldn't even imagine what would happen if I do. Ugh!

I'm sorry that I couldn't handle this question better. Ha ha ha.

See you another day :)
