good moms, bad moms, they are just moms doing thier best

today i witnessed a real life scenario in a shoe way

i wanted to get slippers and the guy went to get the other side of the slippers cause it was the last pair. the other side was still on display. while i was pointing to the salesman that i wanted the pair. another girl and her mom was there as well eyeing the same pair.

"tat wan last pair wor"

the girl's mom heard and so she took the other pair as the daughter wanted it. they took it to try. i was by now holding the other pair of slipper that the man gave to me.

you know the feeling when you stand there in the midst of a 12-13 year old girl, the type that 'the mom doesnt let her do 1001 things cause it is not a proper girl thing to do and whatever mom does is the best for you' type of girl? ...so she was trying on the slipper as she was wearing shoes.

her mom who was being "if my girl wants it, she gets it"

my mom who was keeping quiet cause she has passed the phase of helping your daughter and your daughter at a double digit age should know how to kaotim herself and that every action she does is now her own responsibility and she has no right to say anything even if the result was not what she wanted cause she asked for it.

i stood there in the midst of all these emotions surrounding me...

went to the daughter and gave her to try the other side. she just smiled back at me.

i guess she liked it cause her mom went to pay for the slipper. all the while knowing i gave in the slipper cause she was there as well. not saying a word. not giving me a single gesture of thanks. as she was paying, the sales guy was stopping her saying " sorry, but this girl took it first. she has the upperhand of whether she wants it a not, although your daughter tried it"

well..vincci workers rocks? hahahahahahahaha

but at that very moment, i just went " nvm, she can have it"

her mom just had the " SEEE, she said it wan ar. not my problem."

and my mom had the "WHAT? are you stupid?! you have been wanting that slipper for so long. now you are giving it away?!"

at that moment....well...i just have to find another slipper obviously. what do you want me to do? since it has been done, some things you just cant go..oh sorry...and i just cant go regretting as i know there will be other slippers out there but seeing my fussy style it is going to be very long before i find something i really want or willing to pay for.

it striked me where..mothers really go all the way to get something...Laughs

rush movie

: D : D when i was in college, we would complain that 2-3 weeks holidays are too short. the fact that that homework always came with the holiday in a package. so....suddenly it seems a lot shorter(actually..heck, we usually do not finish the homework given: P)

anyway HOLIDAY!!!: D: D

and i looked into ms.sexay chan's eyes with utmost sadness.

cause she does not have a holiday!!!!kakaka.

confession.confessionnn.

i spent the entire freaking day watching a japanese drama that my sensei loaned to me. was supposed to watch and catch the words plus you know, learrrnn from the language.

in the end, cause it was a "crying" show. like those touching type, not someone dies type. so...i was fastfwding cause i was impatient. crying like shit cause i....-_-'' it is touchinglarh. how not to cry. and...no, i did not learn anything cause they talk like they have too much battery or sunning out of time-_-'

my reading got better btw.

at 8.15pm. i on-ed MSN.

'let's go minum!'
'wth. you are still in the office? go backlarh'
'yala, going back now. minum a not'
'wait, i thought you say you wanna catch a movie?'
'now only you remind me arh? what time edi'
'aiya, lemme checklarh before we go minum just in case.oh ya i haven't bath also: P'
'....'
'eh..gotlarh the show. 9pm'
'whattttttttttt?!!! i am coming now! go bath!'

at 8.30pm. she was honking outside my gate and i was fidgeting trying to shut the gate as fast as possible.

at8.45pm. she dumped me at the door. i ran with my 'slight' heels shoes from ground floor to the cinema.....everyone was giving way and i was practically gonna scream 'LAN HOILARH' but mommy taught me to be a good girl...so 'excuse me' was all i said in between breaths while "running".

hahahahah i can imagine myself screaming lan hoilarh: D

8.55pm. lining up. kns. all these ppl no need to sleep ka?!!!!! ROAR. no work ar tmr?! ms.sexay chan comes after a while with a disbelieve look on her face..or more like "huh?! why so long queue, these people all no need to work tmr ar?!"

ahhahahahahaha: D

9pm. reach the counter

"this!! i want this!!"
"the 9pm one?" in a freakin slow voice...-_- hadlaju yang stagnant lidat.
"YES!!! for 2."
"where do you want to sit"
"...here. cepat!! sudah 9!"
"yeh....9pm, Der Fischer Und Seine Frau for two" stilll hadlaju yang *argh*
"...........-_-'''"

rush to buy drinks. rush to buy food. rush to cinema. rush to toilet.

and got 10 minutes of commercial some more.....always remember esteeeeeeee. got like.20 minutes of ads at GSC where as TGV starts right on the spot-_- ish

we watched this..: D
Der Fischer Und Seine Frau(The Fisherman and His Wife)

"For my wife, good Ilsebill, wills not as I’d have her will." The refrain of the famous Brothers Grimm fairytale which inspired Doris Dörrie’s new film.

Ida, a fashion designer, is travelling through Japan in search of inspiration and ideas when she runs into two Germans, Otto and Leo, who reveal that they are fish merchants. In fact, these “Flying Fish Doctors”, as they call themselves, are purchasing particularly expensive toy fish called koi for wealthy collectors in Germany. Ida and Otto fall in love with each other and their every wish comes true, if only it was not for Ida’s insatiable ambitions....

sypnosis from GSC.

to me it was a not bad movie....realistically speaking. it CAN happen. i mean WHY NOT? man and woman meet by accident. falls in love. blindly. gets married. big hopes. big dreams. priorities change. woman dreams big. makes it big. gets blinded by riches. man wants to be simple. live simple. be simple. etcetcetc. basically what happens when there is a disconnection with one another or what money does to you....i believe such scenarios ARE happening right now. this era or more in the future.

kinda artsy fartsy even if you do not like the storyline in terms of colours and all. RM5 per show. won't hurt to diet for one day kan?: D

re-set

during class,かつまた せんせい asked

どんな ひと (は/が?) なりたいですか。
donna hito (wa /ga?) naritaidesuka.
(what kind of person you would want to be in the future/wish to become)

obviously my grammar still sucks. cannot recall is a ga or wa.

i bet if someone asks me 15 years back, my answer would be way different.

and this feels like the "what do you want to be when you grow up?" question.

just that the tables are turned now.

or maybe it is structured in this way but the answer is supposed to be different cause you cannot really direct translate something from japan to english......let's just skip to the answers.

half the class said
"おかねもち" (rich person)
okanemochi

some girl said
"せいこうしゃ" (successful)
seikousya

Alexaさん said
" ほそい" (slim)
hosoi

we laughed cause she was always eating in class. せんせい joked that her food always took up at least 3m of space on the table. but surprisingly せんせい likes ふとい(fat) healthy kind of fat, people. she says that looks healthy. in Japan, thin is healthy and fat is not. she was like "they must be losing their marbles to think like that."

when she asked me...i was stoning,

and in the end i mumbled.

”しあわせ”(happiness)
shiawase

wanted to answer useful as well...but got cut off cause suddenly the meaning of being happy rose.
"you would want to be a rich poor man, not a poor rich man"

was just the sentence given with no definate answer for it.

funnily,せんせい's answer was
”しんせつ”(kind)
shinsetsu

this is darn difficult.

with life's bitches and it revolving around one another like tigers hogging on a boar's tail. sometimes i don't know how is one person going to be kind.
