Happiness is...

Happiness is....
A drink shared

Watching stars under a really dark sky

Highlighting the important people in your life
(in this case, Elvis and the Angkasawan)

And pretending you already have a fisheye lens
(does this picture look familiar Awe?)

The Quickie

Discard what I said in the earlier post about 'What goes around, comes around'. Obviously, in the insanely infectious world of memes, you get screwed either way. But this is not to say I'm mad at the person who tagged me. A little kick start is good once in a while, no?

Do you think you're hot?
Actually, yes. Which is exactly why I need a bath now

Upload favourite pictures of yourself. Why do you like these pictures?

Because nobody knows I'm the one in the middle!

When was the last time you ate pizza? this supposed to be a Brain Age moment?

The last song you listened to?
Vertigo by U2

What are you doing right besides this?
I was spending some quality time with my PSP. The poor thing needs some loving see?

What name would you prefer besides yours?
Nur Adrina Lina *laugh*

Who are the next people you will tag?
Seriously, I would not want to put others through the same ordeal

Who is number 1?
What number 1?

Say something about number 2
It comes after number 1

Introduce number 3
It's not a tree

How about number four?
'For' the love of God, can we stop here?

Yes you may
Thank goodness for that

Looking Up



And away....!

Tag Me

Memes/Questionnaires/Tags are a cheap way to fill up an empty blog. And they're also a cheap way to trick your friends into filling up theirs. I like to think memes are the Maggi (more like Megi, am I right?) of blogs but since I've been tagged by a close friend and the fact that I've grown tired reading about complications in pregnancies, might as well respond right?

Flowers or chocolates?
Oh come on. Can't we start with something that's not glaringly obvious?

Pepsi or Coke?
Generally Pepsi. But on days when I need my sugar rush, I'll go for a Coke.

Pop or Rock?
Rock definitely. But then again, I listen to all kinds of music. Yes, even sickly sweet sugary pop tunes and Chopin.

Relationship or one night stands?
Relationships. One night stands usually end up dismally. Plus you never remember what happened the night before.

Love or money?
That's a tough one because I've always thought that I can use money to buy the things that I love.

Oh. We're talking about the kind of love given by somebody else is it?

Movies or music?
Music. Period. But I'd go to the movies too if someone took me

Country or city?

Sunny days or rainy days?
Rainy days. They make for cozy snuggle ups under the blanket. Plus, the mood is great for feeling melancholic without a reason. But I'd definitely want the sun to shine if I'll be shooting photos outside (DSLR, where art thou?)

Friends or family?
Family first with close friends coming in at a close second. 

Have you ever:

No. Didn't - and still don't - see the need for it

Broken someone's heart?
I would like to think that I haven't but feel free to correct me

Had your heart broken?

Wish you were a prince/princess?
Have you ever seen how Prince Charles looks like? Do you want to be like him? Me neither.

Liked someone who was already taken?
Yes? My fault really. Was totally ignorant about the said parties' (implying that it happened more than once) relationship. Yup. Classical Jamil-ism.

Shaved your head?
I came close once. It was a form of punishment from my mum cause I was rude to her hahaha.

Been in love?
Who hasn't?

Used chopsticks?
I have, and it's one of those experiences in life which you hope to bury deep at the back of your mind and pray to never remember them again.

Sang in the mirror to yourself?


Now that I think of it, I shouldn't have been particularly honest about that one


I looked up the meaning of candy in a dictionary and it said "a sweet concoction made with sugar or syrup combined with fruits, chocolate or nuts". If that's the case, can I name myself as my own favourite candy? Well, I am a sweet mixture made with sugar and combined with a nut!

According to iTunes, the song I'm currently listening to the most is Gelombang Cinta by Butterfingers

There was this one perfume once given to me as a gift which I really liked. Smelled of fresh water. Does fresh water even have a scent?

Musical instrument
I used to play the organ and was -believe it or not - only six months away from completing the whole course, which is close to seven years. I didn't complete it. It goes without saying that I do regret it, but it was unavoidable. Nowadays, I'm teaching myself to play the guitar. I heard that girls are attracted to guys who play the guitar but I suspect that it's a lie because the only people who listen to me play are my housemates

I'm not exactly a movie watcher, but I have to say that I really like Shrek. It's a thong! - timeless.

Is this based on looks or acting skills? Keanu Reeves in the first Matrix

Junk food
Super Ring. I could eat ten packets and still want more (the whole idea behind junk food, isn't it?)

Can I have a panda for my next birthday please? But on a more realistic front, I like baby animals. It's kind of the same with people too, but that's another story.

Is there anything you wish you could change about yourself?
How about a more deadpan look on my face? Other than that, I wish I could be more charming when dealing with people I'm meeting for the first time.

Do you think you're attractive?
I know I am.

You have to choose a fairytale as your life. What would you choose?

Do you play any sports?
I'll let my twisted knee answer that one

I don't think I'll be tagging anyone else because like they say, 'What goes around, comes around'.

When I Grow Up, I Want To Be....

There have been times in the past where the medical course got a bit too much for me (bloody hell, it still does, doesn't it?) and it is during these so-called 'instances' that I start to question my sanity and soundness of mind on the day I decided to take up medicine.

This is not, however, to say that I regret choosing medicine as my pursuit in life; far from it in fact. It's just that I can't help but wonder if I weren't doing medicine, what is it that I'd be doing instead?

And like only a true bloke would do, I drew up a list of things I'd do in life had I not completely chained myself to medicine and threw away the key taken up medicine. Mind you, some of them were thought of after having just sat for my first and second professional exams, so that should tell you something about the emotional state I was in after answering those bleeding exam questions:

1. Burger seller
2. Newspaper/Tabloid columnist
3. Video games reviewer
4. Video games repair specialist
5. Rock star

But looking back, I realised something: even though I'm now a full-time medical student, I'm also a little bit of everything on that list; well probably except for the burger seller perhaps. Columnist? I'm writing in this blog, am I not (albeit not on a weekly or fortnightly basis). Video games reviewer? Always doing that with my gaming friends. Repair specialist? I've brought back my PSP back from the dead on more than one occasion in the past. Rock star? Always have been one, and always will be.

All thanks to the wonders of photoshop

My only regret is that I can't be Rambo due to err...physical constraints. Unlike some of us.

Now in DVD format!

Postscript: I promised my bored buddy Awe to post up a picture of the smiling moon (more like the smiling constellation, am I right?)
