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 ♥

summer, come already

i wish exams will be done with already
i'm so excited for the summer
mission & NTE will be awesome :)
plus roadtrip with meine lieblings
and then ASIA!
the only thing that would make it even more fantastically exciting
would be if i'm going to a summer music festival
which i'm not
because lineups are ok, but nothing i'm really excited about
plus i was mostly hedging my bets on laneway fest
i really do like the antlers and all
and some of the others
but not enough
plus noone wanted to come with me anyway.
i think i'd go if ladyhawke would be playing melb laneway
but apparently she's only playing NZ laneway.
BUT aside from that i'm hoping the bands do side shows
so i can go to them instead.
can't wait :)

asian family gathering awkwardness take 2

yes sorry.
i figure i'm just going to restart doing the everyday posts once i completely finish exams
which is on the 5th
and i'll aim to reach 300 posts in the year instead
though the thing is i do have quite a few blogs posts that have been started
but i never bothered to finished them
so i'll finish those and post those up too

but anyway so today i had to attend another family gathering
though this time it was awkward because i didn't know who the people were
that just visited from hong kong
apparently the guy and his wife is meant to be my cousin
but he's like 16 years older than me.
so yes.
its also awkward because asian adults make a fuss about everything
and i had to sit next to my mum.
i had my own dish but the rest of them shared
by rest of them, i mean adults
(my 8 y.o. and 10 y.o. cousins didn't share either)
and my mum kept offering some of my food for them (as in the visitors from hk) to try
because they don't really eat vietnamese food
not that i minded
but its just weird that she was offering my food for them to try
plus it was pork chop and i didn't have a knife
so it would have meant me trying to try and cut pieces of meat using a spoon.

another thing i HATE about having asian parents
having to say hi to people
not that i'm a snob or anything
but like my mum expects me to say
"hi aunty" or "hi uncle" to like everyone
or today "hi cousin"
and when i don't
(and i usually don't) she usually says i have no manners
and i witnessed the same thing today with my kid cousins
my aunty was like to them "did you say hi to your second aunty?"
its quite annoying
its not like i HAVE to say something verbally to acknowledge them
i usually smile at them anyway.
but no,
my mother is quite insistent.

yes, i'm not quite sure why my mum made me go today
i didnt exactly talk much
plus i was being antisocial
and was doing the sudoku in the mx.

it was weird weather today
even though i was indoors the whole day
and it didn't really affect me anyway
(side note: i really like when it rains and i'm indoors and i can hear the rain falling outside, its a very comforting sound)
but there was thunder and lightning
and even though my blinds are closed
i could see the lightning seeping in through them
whenever it struck.

also, slightly off topic
why is it that when you get struck by lightning once, you are more likely to get struck again?
compared to someone who has never been struck
i find it really odd.
