I'm late for this post!!!
First of all I would like to wish everyone a happy new year!
あけましておめでとう!

and once again~ it's time for me to review if I completed my 2010 resolutions!

1. Study hard

DONE! There were a few times that I really thought I will not be able to make it but somehow I still managed to pull through. Managed to get into deans list and I'm proud of it. :) And most importantly~ I SURVIVED ADVERTISING :D


2. Apply to go to UB

Applied!I'm a little nervous but also excited about going to Buffalo...will be leaving in 2 days time!!! And sometimes I still can't believe that I am actually going to Buffalo. It is something that the old Zi Xuan will never ever do. But I believe it is going to be a fruitful trip and I will learn how to be even more independent!


3. Continue learning Japanese
At the start of the year yes! But eventually me and val got so busy that we decided to take a hiatus after finishing our basic lessons. Will resume japanese classes when I get back form Buffalo!


4. More overseas trips!
Went to Hokkaido! Although it's my 2nd time going to Japan, I still find it very nice and I want to go there again!!! Free and easy trip next time!!! :D


5. 10th year anniversary with secondary school best friend (:

Oops. The only resolution that I did not fulfil. I did meetup with Mingjie sometimes and I tried to fulfil this resolution when 2010 was ending but oh well >.<..Will have to meetup with them more often next year!

But this year I fulfiled one of my 2009 resolutions!!!
I went for my 1st concert! And it is *drumrolls* THE BACKSTREET BOYS CONCERT! WOOHOO!

And now~~~ my resolutions for this year!

1. Aim for magna cum laude

I must not let my efforts go to waste! One more semester!!! Really hope that I can get magna cum laude!!! Would be even better if I can get into Deans list again next semester too!!!  


2. Be more independent


I think somehow I will be more independent after spending 6 months in U.S? We'll see then...:D


3. Continue learning Japanese

Have to resume my lessons after I get back from Buffalo!


4. More overseas trips!

Once again the same thing on my list! Want to go for more trips and visit more countries!!


5. 0405 perfect attendance gathering

We're almost there! Just a few MIA members that we need to "pester/stalk"..lol...I really want to see it happen because I think this is a great and awesome class :D ROCK ON 0405!!!  

It's time to move on to 2011 everyone! Have a great year!!

I'm back from Hokkaido!
It was a great trip. Nice Scenary, nice food and nice people!

Will talk more about the trip in my next post.
Want to blog about the movies I watched on the plane now... :D


LIAR GAME: THE FINAL STAGE (ライアーゲーム ザ・ファイナルステージ)



Official site: http://liargame.jp/index.html


This movie is currently showing in Singapore.
I love this drama series so I was really looking forward to this movie.
And guess what?
I LOVE IT!

I think it's really nice! Love all those mind games and tricks they were playing in the show! I would really recommend it to people who haven't watch this drama/movie.

Liar game rules haha! XD



BOX! (ボックス!)


Official site:
http://www.box-movie.jp/index.html


People who know me will definitely know why I watched this movie.
HELLO! HAYATO ICHIHARA IS IN THE SHOW~~ :D How can I not want to see him boxing..XDXD

Basically, it's one of those typical shows about a school club, and how the students are enthusiastic and blablabla....might be boring to some people but it is totally my type of show hehe!

And for fans of Hayato Ichihara...I think that it's a MUST WATCH! How many times can you see him all sportsy and angsty at the same time? All those scenes woooo! please watch it if you're a big fan of him haha!



MY DARLING IS A FOREIGNER (ダーリンは外国人)



Official site:
http://www.darling-movie.com/index.html


This movie is adapted from a graphic novel by Saori Oguri. It's really a cute and sweet show!

Basically, it's about this woman who get into a relationship with this American man. It's interesting how they show about some of the weird things that the American man asked/do because of the cultural difference.

Such a cute show! And after watching the show, I feel like buying the graphic novel hehehe! Will get it when money comes in~


SOOOOOO~
These are all the movies I watched on the plane! Was thinking of watching "A Beautiful Mind" again but then I think it would be more worth it if I watched a movie that I can't download haha!

OH OH!
And I'm dying to watch this new movie featuring Toma and Aragaki Yui.



HANAMIZUKI (ハナミズキ)


Official site: http://www.hanamizuki-movie.com/index.html


It's going to start showing in Japan on 21st August 2010.
I really hope they show it in Singapore too!

I hope encore films will bring in BANDAGE and BECK too!
Really hope to watch these shows on the big movie screen :D


To end of this blog post~~~
YAY TO JAPANESE MOVIES! :D

Lately I've been feeling frustrated.
Not with myself but with others.

I just get irritated by others so easily and I don't know why.
I really don't wanna waste my energy feeling frustrated 'cuz of others but somehow I can't help it.

This is bad.

Maybe all I need is just more rest and a longer holiday to relax myself.
I'm still not over the stress from last semester and now, new stress awaits... >.<

I really got the blahs mannn.

After a loooong time, I've finally found a song that starts with D that I really really like.
This song is by a new singer miwa.
I absolutely love the lyrics.


D: don't cry anymore by miwa




ギリギリだって 一人きりだって
負けたくないの 冗談じゃないわ
I don’t cry anymore I don’t cry anymore
強くならなきゃ 言い聞かせてる
どんな時でも 泣かないから

ぬくもり感じ眠ると幸せだった それが
永遠に続くと思ってた なのに
どうしてなんだろう 信じてたものは嘘だったの
こんな時そばにいてくれたらいいのに

震える足で 今踏み出したいよ

ギリギリだって 一人きりだって
負けたくないの 冗談じゃないわ
I don’t cry anymore I don’t cry anymore
強くならなきゃ 言い聞かせてる
どんな時でも 泣かないから

どこを探しても 私の居場所が見つからない
声が聞きたいよ ホントは会いたいけど

振り返らずに 歩いていかなくちゃ

ギリギリだって 輝きたくて
私ならまだ やれるはずだわ
I don’t cry anymore I don’t cry anymore
涙こらえて 顔をあげたら
大丈夫だよって つぶやいてみる

何を信じたらいいのかも
わからなくて もがいて 迷って
つかみたい 今叶えたい
小さなこの手にたくして握りしめるの

ゴメンそんなに 強くないんだ
くじけそうになる時だってあるよ
たとえかすかな 希望だとしても
持ち続けたい ずっと

ギリギリだって 一人きりだって
負けたくないの 冗談じゃないわ
I don’t cry anymore I don’t cry anymore
強くならなきゃ 言い聞かせてる

無理矢理だって がむしゃらになって
生きてゆくんだ 終わりじゃないわ
I don’t cry anymore I don’t cry anymore
あなたの声を 思い出してる
どんな時でも 泣かないから
いつかきっと 笑えるから


Translation:

Even if it’s the last minute or I’m alone
I don’t want to give up, this is serious
I don’t cry anymore I don’t cry anymore
I’m telling myself I have to be strong
No matter what I won’t cry

When I fell asleep with your warmth I was happy
I thought it would last forever
So why was everything I believed in a lie?
At times like this you should be here by my side

My legs are shaking but I want to step forward now

Even if it’s the last minute or I’m alone
I don’t want to give up, this is serious
I don’t cry anymore I don’t cry anymore
I’m telling myself I have to be strong
No matter what I won’t cry

No matter where I look I can’t find my place
I want to hear your voice, I really miss you

But I have to walk on and never look back

Even if it’s the last minute I want to shine
I can still make it on my own
I don’t cry anymore I don’t cry anymore
As I fight back tears and raise my head up
I whisper that everything’s going to be alright

I don’t even know what to believe in
And I struggle and remain lost
I want to grab hold and make what I’m holding
In my tiny hands come true

Sorry, I’m not that strong
And there are times when I feel down
But even if it’s a faint hope
I want to always hold onto it

Even if it’s the last minute or I’m alone
I don’t want to give up, this is serious
I don’t cry anymore I don’t cry anymore
I’m telling myself I have to be strong

It’s not what I want but even if I’m reckless
I’ll live my life, it’s not over
I don’t cry anymore I don’t cry anymore
I remember the sound of your voice
No matter what I won’t cry
I know I’ll be able to smile again someday

Been quite some time since I last blogged.

Oh well...school has started and laa-dee-dah.
I've been trying to change my sleeping and eating habits now.
Not to forget cutting down the hours I spend on the computer too.

Changing my sleeping habits really works.
I can now officially go to school without complaining "I'm sooo tired." as much.
Of course there are still times when I nap during class breaks...
But oh well...that's a different story.

Taking 5 modules is really not as easy as I thought it would be.
Not to mention that I still have my japanese class and some other commitments.
But I'm trying my best to look at things in a positive way.

Of course there'll be times when I feel like complaining (as usual).
But heyyy!!! I remembered that someone has volunteered to be my "trashcan" for the whole of this year. (:

I will be fine. (:






"思い出してみて 絶望を感じたら
君が諦めようとしてる今日って日は
どこかの誰かが諦めたくなかった
明日なんだってこととその手を
僕が強く強く握っているってことを"

"Try to remember, if you’re in despair
On this day when you’ve decided to give up
Somewhere, someone didn’t want to give up
And remember that I am tightly, tightly
Holding your hand and the future"

First post in 2010!

Would like to wish everyone a happy new year!
あけましておめでとう! (:

I must say that I have learnt alot in 2009.
And now, as usual, it's time to review my resolutions for 2009.


1. Study Hard

Definitely done. I've studied like I've never ever studied before.
I've studied so hard that people in school thinks that I'm a mugger.
This is a breakthrough you know..lol


2. Start learning Japanese

Hell yea...me and val finally got our ass down to Bunka and registered for the Japanese class...More Japanese classes awaiting in the future..lol


3. Keep in contact with old friends

Kinda done..had meetups with 0405 and dyb peeps...:D and of course my secondary school friends...wow..I should have even more meetups though...


4. Go to Japan (?)

Oh well...this ws not fulfilled...but since I went to Hong Kong and Bangkok instead, I guess it can be a replacement? haha! :D More trips in 2010 hopefully!


5. Catch my first ever concert

Sadly not fulfilled. The rumor of Arashi coming to Singapore/Malaysia was obviously not true. And since I want to keep my virgin concert for a Japanese artiste/band...I guess I'll have to wait...


6. DYB Zoo Trip

FINALLY FINALLY FULFILLED.
It was great. And lots of people turned up.
But of course, there are always people who can't make it (or perhaps they just didn't want to be there)



NOW!
My resolutions for this year:

1. Study hard

This will continue to be a must-have in my resolution till the day I graduate. There were a few times I got so overwhelmed by what's happening around in school that I've forgotten my dreams/goals. It made me feel lost. But thank goodness my dreams/goals are always here with me. It will always motivate me. And I will never stop trying.


2. Apply to go to UB

I really want to make this true. I don't want to be just talking about this but not doing anything to fulfill it. This is why I really must work hard for the upcoming semester and then apply to go to UB.


3. Continue learning Japanese

DUH! :D


4. More overseas trips!

I want to travel around the world more. :D
It's nice to be traveling with my sis. And not to mention no parents..hehehehehe :D:D


5. 10th year anniversary with secondary school best friend (:

Yes! I'm going to celebrate the 10th year anniversary with my secondary school best friend! It's nice to know that I still have someone supporting me and listening to my rants when I needed it most. (:



This are the resolutions I have for this year. And I need to continue reminding myself to move on in life. And never look back.

I can already foresee a year filled with activities, new memories and of course, more fan-girling to keep me happy (:


"Scars left behind will become part of a memory.
And these memories are going to push me closer to my dreams!"
