Status: Feeling under the weather—and hating every minute of it.

I make the worst sick person.

For most people who fall sick; feasting on steak, chili cheese fries and rich chocolate laden brownies would be the furthest thing on their minds.

However, I seem to be one of the more fortunate ones born with an unfettering appetite—albeit projectile phlegm, a runny nose, and nursing the excruciating agony resulted from tonsillitis.

What’s worst, my ailment is stopping me from doing what I love most: talking.

Fortunately, my throat is a lot better now but the past few days prior to my speedy recovery I sounded like a cross between Lindsay Lohan sucking on bong and a very husky Brianna Evigen.

But I probably sounded a lot less sexy.

Also, this illness couldn’t have come at the suckier time. I had just begun working on a new song and now I can even sing it properly.

So this explains my lack of updates as I get really cranky and agitated when I’m sick. My entries would have probably been hostile and laced with profanity anyway, seeing how I find everything (and everyone) around me really annoying.

Lately, I’ve been biting the heads off my more passive and softhearted peers, emitting more than my normal dosage of sarcasm and behaving a lot more obnoxious—sorry guys!

Anyways, you’re not truly my friend until you’ve absorbed a fair share of mocking and sardonic comebacks that are a 100% Josh-approved.

*smiles*

Peace out.

We had the photoshoot for our Student Council organization poster.

And this is the result of it:

I reckon we look like the cast of Heroes.

Or not.

[Re-edited with new pictures] 

Hey all!

Finally am able to sit down and blog about the showcase. Mind you, there are tonnes of pictures ahead so brace yourself for a lot of scrolling.

I decided to leave college earlier last Friday in hopes to catch Colbie wandering the streets of The Curve.

Instead–while waiting at the venue early–at 5.00pm; I manage to catch her do this:

Colbie was already there doing sound check! She maintained composure despite the fans screaming her name, disrupting her hearing.

See. There are advantages to arriving early at an event.

n604993730_419758_1355.jpg

Horny boy Levi hung out with us and provided the sharp pictures you’ve just viewed with his SLR camera.

n604993730_419760_242.jpg

With Christina; glad you came along girl.

n838575047_2394984_7981.jpg

The rest of the early goers: [from left: Jun Ming, Crystal, Gal, moi and Christina] Andrew, Sarah and Petrina came along slightly later.

Colbie left the stage–amidst screaming fans–to get ready for the show. Granted she stayed at One World Hotel which was just around the premise.

So fast forward to around 7.50pm, this happened:

n556884005_489413_6094.jpg

It rained! But us hardcore fans–along with hordes of other concert goers–stood there drenched in rain.

colbie-caillats-showcase-0308-049.jpg

Alas! After standing there in the rain and watching event emcees Adam C and Natalie entertain the crowd with their nonsensical antics and games, the rain stopped and Colbie Caillat arrives on stage!

She was really sweet and greeted the audience, thanking them for staying despite the downpour.

Colbie starting the show with “The Little Things“…

colbie-caillats-showcase-0308-061.jpg

…before proceeding to sing (my favourite) “Realize“; her new song “Out of My Mind“; the Hawaiian inspired “Tied Down” and the melancholic “Battle“.

n802495366_2517943_9345.jpg

Gal, Andrew, Pet and I: wet but happy.

colbie-caillats-showcase-0308-065.jpg

*Cheese*

colbie-caillats-showcase-0308-069.jpg

Doesn’t she look like an auburn version of Vanessa Carlton?

colbie-caillats-showcase-0308-093.jpg

Her guitarist and back up singer, Justin Young.

colbie-caillats-showcase-0308-094.jpg

Her other guitarist and back up singer, Tim Fagan.

There was also her drummer, Michael Baker playing the kahoun and percussions but he was sitting behind Colbie so I couldn’t get a good shot of him.

colbie-caillats-showcase-0308-095.jpg

Hitz.fm, our local radio station, ran a contest where the decided winner gets to sing on stage with Colbie and accompany her to visit the KL Tower the following day. The lucky winner? 18 year old, Prima.

colbie-caillats-showcase-0308-096.jpg

Prima, accompanied by Colbie on guitar, sang “Bubbly“. To be honest, she sounded pretty regular and reminded me of those Malaysia Idol hopefuls. A fairly decent delivery.

colbie-caillats-showcase-0308-097.jpg

The lucky girl gets a peck from Colbie.

colbie-caillats-showcase-0308-099.jpg

Colbie continued, sans Prima, to sing “Bubbly” complete with bubbles.

She then ended the 40 minute showcase with “Magic“.

A very blurred picture of Colbie waving goodbye.

She came out later for an autograph signing session but the line was so long we decided to just camwhore and chill at Laundry.

Look at all the famished faces.

copy-of-colbie-caillats-showcase-0308-111.jpg

And the number one gluttons.

Overall it was an amazing show and Colbie sounded awesome! For more info on the event, check out the lucky girlwho got to interview Colbie.

I’m so psyched that my favourite acts and singers came to Malaysia. First there was the Pussycat Dolls. Now, Colbie Caillat.

Next up: Vanessa Carlton, Joshua Radin, John Mayer and Paramore!

*lets out a huuuuugggggeeeeee sigh of relief*

Finally, exams are over! Not that I was toiling day and night for the past few weeks but I still managed to cram enough the past few days to be able to answer with ease.

….at least I think I did.

My fingers are numb from all the writing but it don’t matter no more cos now I can finally breathe and enjoy my break partying away!

Speaking of partying….

Tomorrow night I’ll be in the front row witnessing this, firsthand:

Yes!

Colbie Caillat’s in Malaysia giving a showcase at Laundry, D Curve; and I’ve got tickets!!!

Way to celebrate my liberation huh? Anyways, check in to see photos from the show as soon as I get back to blog about it.

To all Life College students; go relax and chill out after your papers. I know how hard you’ve all been studying for exams this semester.

See ya’ll in a week!

Browsing through the papers today, I stumbled upon something that caught the attention of my eye.

Kye Li!

Apparently she’s running an on-line shopping website selling gorgeous looking clothes. I knew she’d venture into the fashion business, what with her being a fashionista and all.

The peeps in college misses you girl, as do I.

All the best in your endeavours!

Serena van der Woodsen + Blair Waldorf = Utter hotness

I miss Gossip Girl.

Sorry, needed something to distract me from thinking about my Academic English paper.

But they make for good distraction don’t ya think?

I usually don’t care much for tags and neither do I actually read them but both Gal and Levi tagged me so; I cave.

Let the lameness begin: 

LIST OUT 5 PRESENTS YOU WISH FOR:

  • The perfect body i.e.
marcnelson01.jpg 
Marc Nelson’s stone hard abs. Swoon…
  • An iPOD or an mp3 player. Seriously! I think I’m the only pathetic person who still travel on trains listening to a discman.
  • New clothes or rather, money to shop. Then again, I’d need present number one to look good in them otherwise no point wasting money.
  • A trip to New York, San Francisco and Boston. I guess that’s three things so I’d settle for a plane ticket to the States.
  • A grand piano. It’s always been my dream to own one.
    • THE PERSON WHO TAGGED YOU: 

      YOUR FIRST 5 IMPRESSIONS OF HIM:

      Levi:

        n838575047_7436.jpg

      • Horny Innocent
      • Stupid Funny
      • Annoying (he still is)
      • REALLY ANNOYING!
      • A person who underneath the exterior of a complete buffoon is actually a good friend, brother and confidante; which explains why I waste so much of my time on him. Haha, love ya bro!

      Gal:

        1_795044803l.jpg

      • Hilariously funny!! Gets my off-based humour.
      • Adorable to the max; which makes the girls love him even more!
      • I thought he was older than me…maybe it’s got something to do with the size. Sorry Gal!
      • He is going to be someone I can count on and have a good lasting friendship with. I was right.
      • That goofy smile!

      THE MOST MEMORABLE THING HE HAS DONE/GIVEN TO YOU:

      Levi: Ooohh….erm [pauses to recall]….I really can’t think of anything…Oh! The time he…erm…I can’t think of anything. Oh yeah,  when he downloaded season 4 of Grey’s Anatomy for me. Or the time he…err…wait…I can think of this…erm…the time he….

      Gal: The confidence of knowing that he will never betray me.

      THE MOST MEMORABLE THING HE/HAS SAID TO YOU:

      Levi: “You’re gay!” Memorable because he never fails to say it to me everyday.

      Gal: “Shua, you’re not thaaat stupid lar,”

      IF HE BECOMES YOUR LOVER, YOU TWO WILL:

      Levi: …be having fabulous, off-the-wall, crazy sex. But that’s never going to happen–PERIOD!

      Gal: …be the luckiest, most satisfied lover in the world. Gal, Honest to blog.

      IF HE BECOMES YOUR ENEMY, THE REASON WILL BE BECAUSE:

      Levi: He had sex with my (non-existent) girlfriend…but I think I’d still find a way to forgive him. I love him that much.

      Gal: …I don’t think he can ever be my enemy, unless I suddenly became Chad Michael Murray.

      mum.jpg

      It’s not every day a kid gets to say to their mothers: “Happy 50th mum, you’re getting old!”

      Well in the case of mine; I can, and I say it loud and proud.

      My mum’s turned 50 and she’s never looked more beautiful.

      Happy Birthday mum.

      Love, your over-weight son.

      Here are pictures from Crystal’s birthday dinner at Italianese. It should make up for my absence from the blogsphere while I cram for exams next week.

      Enjoy!

      Glorious Angel’s Hair at Italianese. [Edit: I actually hate the food at Italianese but the outlet in the Gardens was most impressive. I like, I like!]
