2009 Christmas wishlist

Saturday, November 28, 2009

This is my official Christmas list :D
I love making lists of things I want. LOL.

Carmen's 2009 Christmas wishlist

1. Nike+ shoes

AHHHH :D! But the thing is I don't even know whether I would have time to use the Nike+Apple application for exercise. LOL I don't even exercise! But I want the shoes so much!

2. Blackberry

I really want an iPhone 3GS instead, but everyone has an iPhone! I like to be different. So I'd rather have a Blackberry, but I heard they are good anyways. I just don't know how long I will take to get used to the tiny keypads.

3. iPod Touch Charger Adaptor

Haha I know la, nothing much. But, I need it! Instead of always having to turn on the computer to charge my iPod, I can charge it without turning it on by using the adaptor!

4. Affogato

It's an Italian coffee! I saw it in Gardens the other day. I wanted to try it! Unfortunately, didn't have time to get it..

5. Nintendo Wii

I love the sports games. Can also exercise with this! So cool.

6. Nintendo DSi

I can't believe they released the Nintendo DSi a year after I bought the Nintendo DS. That's the problem about technology! Gets updated all the time!
I wrote a previous post about how upset I was that my Nintendo DS is outdated.

7. Padini Authentics bag

I don't really have a picture of it.. but it's nice :D\

8. A new laptop/netbook/computer

I currently don't know what I model/brand I want.

9. Olympus PEN

A DSLR, but digital camera size. I saw some pics which were taken by it, and they were so nice :O!

10. Sony Ericsson W910

Joanne Sim has it! Haha I played it! And I accidentally dropped it too. I felt guilty the whole day, I think I still feel guilty!
It was really Wii-like.

11. Nikon Coolpix S1000pj

The world's first projector camera. So cool, you can show everyone your pictures on the spot! And Nikon Coolpix cameras are user-friendly :)

Currently can't think of anymore. I will update/edit the list when something comes to my mind.

Jazz; Upcoming Christmas wishlist!

Friday, November 27, 2009

Life is a lot like jazz... it's best when you improvise...
— George Gershwin

Jazz is freedom. You think about that.
—Thelonius Monk

Jazz music is the power of now. There is no script. It's conversation. The emotion is given to you by musicians as they make split-second decisions to fulfill what they feel the moment requires.
—Wynton Marsalis

Once you get it, you can't stop! :mSmoking:

It doesn't take an Einstein to recognize jazz. You hear it, and you just know it. Jazz takes you to another world, a world with no worries.
And it sounds so high-class (what Bryan T said). I love the high-class ambiance and environment. Don't you? Thinking about eating in a high-class restaurant with jazz as background music in some cool country just makes me drool :mBerangan:
I'm so trying to learn how to play jazz on the piano, but it's so hard o.O I need to get a book for it.

You probably don't understand what I mean.
Let the music take you to THAT other world~

Diana Krall - The Look of Love

Chris Botti - My Funny Valentine

Ella Fitzgerald - Body and Soul

Thank God for creating jazz :)
And Bossa Nova (this will be another post another day!)

But right, I think I like jazz now because of the Christmas season. Jazz just sounds so much better during Christmas.


I don't know why..
I can't wait to grow up and face all those adult challenges out there!
I want to learn how to drive, earn money, buy things myself, live in a studio apartment/luxury apartment, attend cocktail parties etc..
I have big dreams. But I don't do anything to chase it. Sad.

I am so going to come up with a Christmas wishlist soon! Even if I can't get most of the things on the list, at least I can fantasize myself having them!

Dad says if I get straight As for PMR, I'll get a Nike+ shoes, Nike shoes with chips inside that can track your exercises with the iPod Touch/iPhone. RM200+ :pandaGeli_18: I have the iPod Touch, now I just need the Nike+ shoes!!
Ok I'll save my fantasizing and ranting for my Christmas wishlist!! I think I'm gonna do it now!

New Christmas layout & icons

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

Christmas is just around the corner :pandaGeli_18: So fast right?
God, please let my PMR results be a good Christmas present from You!

So I made this layout :) I don't like the snow in the banner, but it's a WHITE CHRISTMAS theme. Hence, the snow.
When it comes to my blog layout and Photoshop-related things, I must achieve perfection! Well, near to perfect is good too.
How's the snow-falling-down thing :D? I hope it's nice, and not irritating anyone. If it is, do tell me by leaving a msg in the tagboard/comment.

I think I'm going to make another one 3 weeks later. A dark one so that you can see the snow clearly. And put some Christmas jazz in the blog

AHHH so busy doing preparations for VBS. This year like so slumber like that :pandaGeli_02: But I'm so happy we did a lot :D Thanks Shan Berg for fetching me to church and back. And buying food for us. You're awesome!
I shall upload the pics after VBS or when VBS starts.

HAHA thank God Phoebe gave me the .avi version of Glee, if not, it would take me forever to make this:

Awesome gathering :D

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Had an outing/gathering with Saw, YuenC, Verinia, Jya Xia, Pek Wan, Lay Fang, Amira, her sister Hani, John, Cheah, Colin and Giam!

I finally got my Starbucks Mocha Frapp! Have been craving for it.

These girls (and a boy) are so high when it comes to cheong k XD!

Saw and her :pandaGeli_14: face!

Me & my beloved coffee.

I'm telling you.. Starbucks makes Verinia (and me) absolutely high~

Haha I was called 'mummy' the whole gathering just because I looked like "A mother of two" =.=" I insisted on them calling me Dai Ga Jeh instead XD

This has gotta be the cutest, silliest video I have participated in:

Here are the cheong k clips:

If You Wanna Be My Lover/Wannabe
(Lol, I wanna I wanna I wanna I wanna!!)

Axel F - Crazy Frog
(This was really funny because as you know, the whole song only has 'bram' and 'ding'. Priceless moment!)

We Will Rock You

For more pics:

I don't sing, I take photographs.

You wake up, and time has slipped away..

I was on a Photoshop craze again~ I felt productive.
Personally, I think I make better icons when there are humans (subjects) in the picture ;)

Spot the 'C*'/'*C'!

Hmmm time has certainly slipped away.
And just in a blink of an eye, PMR results will be out, and the holidays will be over.

Had a great church thanksgiving dinner! The American food included turkey, pumpkin pie (I don't like pumpkin) and cookies! The cookies were heavenly!
And it was then that I realized that food with texture like oats and pumpkin, make me puke.


It was my bro's & Stan's burfday this week :D! They had a nice cake, and Christopher got a bingo set.

I gave him a card and a Christian bookmark!

Am I a great sister or what :mGelak:

New stuff!

Saturday, November 7, 2009

How are you people liking the new layout? It's like a tiki paradise :D!
It's so colourful, lol. I'm so lazy to match the colours, and I have some error in my blog HTML which I don't even know what it is.

(Click on it to see a bigger view!)
This was originally what I wanted to put up there, but it didn't match the background. And I couldn't find a seamless background to match it. Darn, doesn't it look so much cooler?

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty proud of my banner. LOL it took me 3 hours to do. From 11.30PM to 3AM.

I keep making mistakes and have to re-do it again XD

Woohoooo I'm on Photoshop craze~

I made these yesterday too:
