Mainly just... Photo spam maybe?
( A million photos )
That's all! Last day of holidays today. Sort of. Then I'll be back at work for 2.5 days... then a long weekend again (including my sis's bday this coming Sunday)
Going out for lunch with grandma!

Here goes another entry with a non descriptive/relevant title.
I suck at LJ titles. Anyway. Photos!
I was supposed to post it during my mixlr broadcast but in the end I didn’t… So here I am posting this at 1:30 am. Because I don’t feel like going to bed yet. Cos I had a nap earlier! So I can’t sleep! And then tmr I’ll end up being sleepy at work… and the cycle goes on yay! But I usually get 4-6 hours of sleep on weekdays anyway so…
Alright. That’s all for this entry! Till next time!
Yay! Day 4 of the vacation! It was Christmas eve!
So that was all for day 4. We took the train back to the hotel and packed up, because the next day we’ll be heading off to the airport right after a quick breakfast in the hotel!
Finally, got round to making this post! Went out like… two weeks ago with my sis and her friends to celebrate her bday… and I snapped some photos! Her bday is on the 3rd of Jan, right after the new day, so the christmas decorations were still around! And there’s the Orchard road (premium shopping street in SG) pedestrian night too. It’s a trial that’s underway, where they close the road once a month on the first Saturday of the year to well, let you roam the streets. It was kinda… pathetic though IMO. There were some random performances here and there, a stage, with a very noisy MC. And is was pretty crowded with tourists and Singaporean alike… but the whole atmosphere was lacking. The street performers were still by the sidewalks, as they always were, because they are not license/authorised to perform in the middle of the road. It’s a once a month, 6 hour event, so they didn’t think of setting up stalls in the middle of the road. Some snack stalls and such would certainly give the whole place a more… carnival, festive atmosphere. Thankfully the Christmas lights were still up so we had something to see on this occasion. But otherwise? Kinda disappointing. There’s so much more that could have been done really. And considering how much SG depends on tourism to survive, the Singapore tourism board really should have done better.
Okays. Without further ado, photos!( Click for photo spam! )
Finding more random stuff to translate!
Because I still don’t feel like doing abunai. Hahaha.
I was going to translate the short video message on jweb mobile, because the English subs for the video wasn’t out when I checked the other day… but it’s out now so I guess there’s no need. Plus it’s really just the usual promotion stuff anyway. Though Aiba did make a cute mistake in the middle. Said that I can’t see the long, full video. You need a Japanese address to sign up for the JFC. Oh wells. JFC? Johnny’s Family Club. Suddenly realised it sounds like KFC. Ha!
There’s tons of scans on KnH for me to download and translate… but magazine interviews thens to be… pretty long… blah.
Oh wells. How about I spam you with a truckload of photos instead? Literally truckload of photos. You have been warned.( Photo SPAM )
Ah… I think I shall stop here for now. I’ll continue in a part 2 later/next time i guess… :X
Yay photos! Cos I was too lazy last weekend to open marsedit and make a post with photos… I kinda… refuse to do posts on LJ with photos unless I open marsedit. Its too troublesome to upload each photo individually to photo bucket or wherever, and then tinkering with the html code to make sure the photos don’t end up TOO big… whatever. I’m just a lazy person. You should know that by now.( A cut to prevent from photos from flooding your feed... XD )
Finally. It’s here. The post that ya all have been waiting for the whole week. So Monday was holiday in lieu of National day, and I went to watch Conan movie with my sis… and then we found out that they are airing Kenshin movie in sg toooooo! And I’ve been super hyped up about the Kenshin movie even though I’ve not watched the 1st movie yet, thanks to all their promotions on VSA and AnS… But yup, I’ve downloaded the 1st movie to my comm already! That’s one more item to my To-Watch list, together with episode two of Sherlock (plus the manga to read too). Luckily I already watched last week’s AM and NS. Just got Thursday’s VSA to watch! And of course, LOVE DVD. I’m watching those today FOR SURE. Octavia’s gone to Manila to meet up with the other girls and attend the LOVE DVD screening there, so there’s no one to bug me about doing random videos today hahaha. Great! XD I’ll be watching to my heart’s content! XDAnd oh about the Conan movie... I enjoyed myself tons even though that was the first Conan movie I watched! Yes, add that to my to-watch list as well. Finish up kenshin anime and watch conan anime and movies from start to finish. I was really glad too, I understood pretty much everything w/o having to read the subs. In fact, I spotted a few instances when the subs were wrong. Nothing major but, the sentence was spoken as a question, but the sub changed it into a statement of fact. Happened like twice I think...
What I’ve found amusing is that… as a two men team (well its either me and Mafia red, or me and Mafia J), we are working and releasing faster than the group made by the girl I clashed with last time. So much so for her and her translators. Even both of her translators working together last time, they could not finish an episode of AnS as fast as I could alone… tch! And I could have finished it faster if I didn’t go out… but well… I enjoyed myself on Monday loads! Ah yes your long awaited pictures… here they come!( Pictures, and more rumblings )
Hmm finally. Japanese words. Been wanting to post this for a while now. Remember my previous post where I talked about the word 零れ? Well. I was thinking about the one and only Arashi song that I made flashcards of the vocab on quiz let (more on that in a while), and I felt like shooting myself. It’s there. The very same word. In the lyrics, at the beginning. Pifft. And I have, obviously, forgotten that word. Well not really. I guessed the meaning when I heard it in AM but I wanted to be sure. But there and then I certainly didn’t remember that this word came from Fly.
Just gonna introduce two words for now...
石鹸 (せっけん, Sekken) - Soap
女々しい (めめしい, memeshi) - Effeminate.
Now this is a word that I can guess the Japanese meaning, but need to search up the definition of the translation to check that I guessed right. Yes, my vocab is pretty sucky. So well, here’s the definition of effeminate: (of a man) having or showing characteristics regarded as typical of a woman; unmanly.
Finally. Last thing of the post! Quizlet. I’ve been using it for some time, and I’ve decided to share some of the lists with you girls. Just two lists for now. Random Japanese words over here. And words from the song Fly, over here. Nope, there is no romanji in the cards. If you are trying to learn Japanese you really should start by learning Hiragana and Katagana anyway, and there’s a million sites to learn those (I’m sure a million youtube videos teaching them too) so there is no need for me to post that here.
