hi! i'm als & this is my blog.

i write about random things.
these days i write pretty sporatically.
sometimes i completely rave about something, like a tv show but sometimes i write pretty serious things.
i write in short phrases, i like the freedom of not having to write in proper punctuation and grammar.
i'm a christian. i also ♥ music, art, photography, movies, tv & books.

hope you enjoy ♥

#88 bueno


i think i never really ever say hi or anything.
so hi

i think buenos are making me fat
true story.
they're so good
and like currently its like buy two
and get a $5 movie ticket
they're like a dollar at coles
in melb central
well, currently they are
even though it doesnt say so on the shelf
it scans at a dollar
in conclusion
i eat them a lot now
and they're making me fat

this is pretty true.

i dislike how this doesn't show me when i get a new comment
so if you have commented
well i only just read them now
cos i had to go to my actual page to read my comments
but keep them coming

i also like how in my music
i have songs that go up by numbers
as in:
20 years of snow - regina spektor
21st century life - sam sparro
22 - lily allen
23 - blonde redhead
24 - jem
25 bucks - minuit

also, i will finally update the post from two days ago
it was a good story
just that i couldn't be bothered to post it
and has more 'drawn-in-paint' pictures
(see echidna head guy post)
enjoy :)

awkward family gatherings #86

sorry i've been delayed with post these past few days
been coming home late

so tonight, i went to my uncles house
after work
meaning i got there at 7.30m
for some family gathering business
you know the one
cos my aunty just came from hong kong
to visit
and stuff
and i hadn't seen her for 5 years
so that would've been
when i was 15 or 14
and yes
so when she saw me she was like
"Oh, you're so pretty now"
la la la
and she kept wanting to take photos of me
as in while i was eating alone by myself on the table.
it was awkward.
and brushing my hair back
cos she says she likes it like that.
it was kinda odd to me.
my other aunties and my mum found it funny.
though i do like that aunty
she used to buy me barbies from hong kong and stuff

it just was a bit odd
i don't know
but she kept saying how pretty i looked
you know in an 'aunty' sort of way
i find that they discuss things about you
'as-if-you're-not-there, but-you're-right-there' way.
as in "oh, she's so pretty now. she looks like her dad though, (insert my mum's name in canto). oh yeah she's so pretty."
they do that.
a lot.



irregular shoppers #85

i like my title
it makes them sound like they're irregular
as in
they have irregular bowels

so i was at savers
as usual
and well, i'm what i call a normal shopper
i start from one side of the rack and work towards the other side
well, i encountered a irregular shopper
and well, sometimes you encounter people
who are slightly irregular
but not to the extent of this lady
so she'd start at say the right side, look a little
then go to the start of the left side look a little more
return to the right side
to the same place
and this is during while i'm working my way down the rack
and she'd push all the clothes away
and well, if you shop at savers regularly
you know that there's an etiquette
that if someone's looking at their section don't intrude
just look somewhere else
and return later
but seriously she was intruding
and i was so annoyed
then she'd decide to return the left side
and then the end of the right
and back to the top of the left
she was annoying.

here's my diagram of it:
i'm in the orange
and her movements are indicated by the burgundy arrows and numbers
uber annoying.

Friday, March 26, 2010


so today i was at lincraft
buying some stuff and it was nearly closing time
so i was going to pay
then i walk up to the cash register
and the chick is counting money
but there's a sign that says
register is closed, pay at the cutting corner
which is upstairs
and the chick saw me go up and didn't say anything
then i go up to the 'cutting corner'
and i ask if i can pay
and she tells me to go downstairs
then i go downstairs to the girl but on the otherside
because there was this other girl
and she goes
'oh, you have to pay over there'
because i was quite annoyed at this point
i rolled my eyes at her
and went to the counter which i finally could pay
but the stupid thing is as well
is that
when they announced in the loudspeaker
that they were closing
she said go pay at the cutting corner
but the place i went to pay
had no such sign
whereas the one upstairs did
lincraft service sucks.

the end.

watercolour #82

been doing a lot of drawing lately
because jacky bought me a set of water colour pencils
it been fun
cos you draw something mediocre
then with a brush strategically wet it
and it looks
much better

also, jacky bought me a set of expensive faber castell ones
and well there wasnt enough colours
so i bought a box of cheap ones
and theres more colours
but you can easily tell which is which
the cheap ones
though they claim to be 'soft'
are really hard
and they leave dents into the paper
when you draw
which defeat the purpose
cos when you wet it
you can see where you've drawn
but the good ones
they're so much softer
and better to blend when wet

i drew a gum ball machine today
which all colourful gum balls inside
i think its cute
but yes
i'd take a pic to show you but
its late
and i can't be bothered

lost&found #81

i love finding things that i've lost
its the best feeling
makes me so happy and excited

i found two things today
a lost earring
that i really liked
as in i had one and lost the other
but i found the other one so i'm good now

and my curler which i had thought i'd lost
i found it too

implausible typing #80

so you know in movies or cartoons
or tv shows or whatever
the characters/people always do what i call implausible typing
which means the character/person type what they are intending to type
in about less than half the time it would in real life
maybe even in a quarter of the time

well, i get that you know they need to reduce empty screen time or whatever
but i mean seriously
try to make it at least a little more believable
and obviously it isn't possible that all of these characters are just super efficient at typing
this also applies to when the characters are "hacking stuff"
they press like 3 buttons and they end up entering, i don't know, like the CIA files or whatever

i just remembered this yesterday
when emma pointed out
that in an episode of how i met your mother
marshall 'types' his password in like 2 keys


in other news,
i find this fail really funny
i love the music they put behind it
it makes it seem so poetic.
i also loves how the frog uses his arms to grab the insect to his mouth
but nothings there


Saturday, March 20, 2010


don't you just hate it when
you really want to get home
so you rush out from work
then when you get to your bus stop
you realise you left your wallet at work just when the bus is about to come
so you rush back to work to get your wallet
then go back out
and have to wait for the bus.
and now i realised i left something else at work
which i guess i'll have to get next week.

nicest thing #78

i absolutely love this song
its an old song
nicest thing by kate nash
but i love hearing songs i used to love
and this is one of them
the lyrics are so sad but cute:

all i know is that you're so nice
you're the nicest thing i've seen
i wish that we could give it a go
see if we could be something

i wish i was your favourite girl
i wish you thought i was the reason you are in the world
i wish my smile was your favourite kind of smile
i wish the way that i dressed was your favourite kind of style

i wish you couldn't figure me out

but you always wanna know what i was about
i wish you'd hold my hand
when i was upset
i wish you'd never forget
the look on my face when we first met

i wish you had a favourite beauty spot

that you loved secretly
cause it was on a hidden bit,
that nobody else could see
basically, i wish that you loved me
i wish that you needed me
i wish that you knew when i said two sugars,
actually i meant three

i wish that without me your heart would break

i wish that without me you'd be spending the rest of your nights awake
i wish that without me you couldn't eat
i wish i was the last thing on your mind before you went to sleep

look, all i know is that you're the nicest thing i've ever seen

and i wish that we could see if we could be something
yeah, i wish that we could see if we could be something
i wish that we could see if we could be something.

birds of tokyo #77

i borrowed the Birds of Tokyo cd from the library
and i really like them
they're a
well i would describe it as
purely rock
slightly pop, but mostly rock band

i also really like this literal eclipse trailer
funny :)

also, btw
i enable comments again
just so you know.

freak out #76

sorry my post is so late
i had a stressful incident last night
which prevented me from posting
and by stressful
i mean i had a little freak out
but all is cool now
cos i fixed it.

yeah my netbook usb ports didn't work at all yesterday
then i freaked out cos i hadn't registered my warranty yet
then i tried to make an account with acer australia
and i filled in everything
but it kept telling me that i didn't fill in the post code
thus i couldn't register
and yes
very stressful
i managed to fix it but updating the usb drivers
even though there wasn't anything to update
and this was at like 12.30 last night
and cos i wanted to sleep early since i had to wake early for my 8.30 lecture
but i still hadn't printed my lecture notes
so i slept late yesterday

but it's all good now.

heroes vs. villains #75

currently watching the new season of survivor
quite excited for this season
cos it'll be really interesting
especially with the villains
cos i mean usually you have 1 or 2 'evil' people
that lie and backstab to try and control the game
but now there's 10
all on one team
it'll be interesting who would be the ones that will lose by their own game
and get backstabbed instead of backstabbing

i also love the music they play for the respective teams
like for the heroes team
you have very heroic and upbeat/happy music
but then for the villains
you have very dark and dramatic music
i found that really funny

though i'm totally going for the heroes
actually i really want either colby or amanda to win
or james
and i really want russell to be voted off
he annoys me so bad
like i watched him last season
and this season
yes, want him out.



-1.41 am
i just finished being up to date with survivor
how annoying
the villains keep winning the immunity challenges
thus the heroes keep getting voted out

awkward pimples #74

i currently have a pimple
at the bottom of my elbow
and its really painful
and i wonder how on earth did a pimple end up there
like seriously

and once i had one on my butt cheek
that was kinda painful too
how do pimples end up in such strange places
i mean i get it if its on the face or back
but elbow?

bad grammar much? #73

so i emailed this lady at uni
she's the coordinator for placements
and so i emailed her to ask a question
and she replied

"Hi Alison

Could you dropped pasted my office and have a chat with me.


& its not even a typo
cos she has two things wrong here

so it'll take a while
and emma also got me a mrs fields cookie cake
which i haven't eaten yet
and my boss bought me cupcakes today
which was sweet
cake cake cake.

or laugh

i love you all ♥

and its a class i should go to
cos i would actually learn stuff

the other one #68

i dislike being in groups of 3s or more
i always find myself being the one walking alone
ie. two people walk together and one either infront or behind
but about 80% of the time
i'm usually the one by myself
missing out on the conversation
but then again
i don't know if its always because
i'm always the left one out
or i just instinctively walk by myself
cos well,
i can handle being alone
i'm very used to it.

i also dislike when people are talking
and its meant to be in a group situation
but they talk quietly to another person
and i find myself always wondering what they are saying
half the time i ask
but the other half of the time i don't
so i don't feel like i'm being annoying.
but yes.

just saying.


late a little.
i was cleaning my room

when i looked at my timetable last week
for my lectures this week
well tmr i was meant to have
a lecture from 10 - 11
then 11 - 12
then 1 - 2
and a tutorial 2 - 3

then i looked again today
on top of that
i have a lecture 9 - 10
and the tutorial goes from 2 -4

flood #65

i was working right
10 - 6
my usual shift on saturdays
at the pharmacy.

but at around 3pm when the storms hit
the pharmacy was flooded
it all happened so quickly
we were standing there helpless
not knowing what to do
then for the next 2 and half hours
we (and others in the shopping centre) were trying to stop more water coming in/getting the water out
and i think if we just left it
the water would have been around 10 cm high
at some points of the shop
and i did get quite a work out
pushing the water out
and everything.
and i had my feet soaked in water for that amount of time
so disgusting.
i hate soggy feet.

also had another horrible public transport experience
except this time took no where near as long as last time
since after spending 40 mins on st kilda rd
the bus driver decided to drive on tram tracks instead
so it was a bit quicker
i still was home about an hour later than i would normally
but at least it wasn't 2 hours like last time

also pretty much all of the trees
in the city i saw
were stripped of their leaves
and there were leaves
but then impact in the west was no where near as bad
when i got off the bus
there was hardly any evidence of damage
ie. the trees still had their leaves

but yes
it was a CRAZY day.

Friday, March 5, 2010


i went to see phoenix tonight
with jiali
it was pretty good
except that we weren't in the mosh pit
so we had seats in the back corner
but it was alright
oh, but there were an annoying bunch of guys behind us
that sorta kept boo-ing
just cos they didn't know a particular song
i liked most of it
except the fact that i was really tired
and the instrumentals (ie. love like a sunset)
people started chatting
which was a bit
i was so excited when they finally played 1901
the place went wild
yes, thoroughly enjoyed it
though i still think the best concert i've been to was the yeah yeah yeahs
i was on such a high after that

also, met some guy at the train station who went to the concert
one of those white washed asian, wearing skinny jeans and grey singlet with half shaved head types
turns out he loves hungry jacks
(cos i was eating it)
and that he knows the prices for all the stuff
i thought that was interesting

names #63

i dislike it
when i meet someone
and we tell each other our names
then get into a conversation
and i realise mid conversation
that i've forgotten their name
its very frustrating
also cos i feel rude if i ask for their name again.

i found this on youtube
i liked it.
its mean girls
disney style :)

theodore #61

been watching better off ted lately
its really funny
and i also can't help comparing it to arrested development
well for 1) portia de rossi is in both
2) the male protagonist is a single parent businessmen
except for the fact that in arrested development george michael bluth is a not-so-bright adolescent
but rose crisp in better off ted is an extremely intelligent child
but yes
the shows are different in the setting
and a little different to each other
but ted, in better off ted
is just so likeable
whereas michael bluth is also quite likeable
but no where near as much
and rose crisp is soo adorable :)

and some of my fav parts are the fake ads for the company bit:

"veridian dynamics. we're a family, just like yours. but we don't waste our time throwing leaves around...... veridian dynamics. family. yay." LOL

"veridian dynamics. we're the future for food, developing the next generation of food and food like products. tomatoes. the size of this baby. lemon flavoured fish. chickens that lay 16 eggs a day. which is a lot for a chicken. organic vegetables, chocful of antidepressants. at veridian dynamics, we can even make radishes so spicy that people can't eat them, but we're not. because people can't eat them. veridian dynamics. food. yum." haha

oh, i also found out that ted is short for theodore
by both watching this show and how i met your mother
then jacky told me the story of teddy bears and theodore rossevelt
so i have an excuse for not knowing that fact
i'm not american

early present #60

i haven't actually started uni yet
didnt have any classes today
start at 9.30 tmr
which isn't too bad
i only have 1 8.30 start in a week
and the rest start at 10 or later
i have 4 lectures tmr
and i'm already planning to skip one of them
but i'm going to christian union instead

i'm using my net netbook right now
its navy blue
and my mum bought it for me for my birthday :)
so i can carry it to uni and stuff
so that it won't be so heavy as carrying my laptop everyday
but it feels kinda weird
its so SMALL.
like the screen and keyboard and everything
its like half the size of my laptop
but i guess i'll get used to it

ning nang nong #59

oh, it brings back so many memories
