So I have a short story in mind when I decided to take this picture.

You see the plastic cling wrap that covers these fruits? And the surface in between that the fruits make of the wrap? When I was a wee kid, I used to poke every available one as I walk past them! Hahaha. Talk about being a naughty kid. Menyusahkan orang jua tu kan? LOL. But that’s the only naughty thing I did as a child, I was quite the goody-two-shoes. :D

On the topic of fruits. I quite like this next one:

I love the green that makes up this picture.


I’m it!

I was tagged, and I love doing these things. It’s been quite unfortunate that I’m rarely the popular one, so I rarely get tagged. LOL. Sad, much? But thanks, F! :)

1. Tell us your name:
Tina D. Aiseh, so glamorous, is it not? HAHA. Right. Anyway. Next.

2. Three things about yourself:
Bubbly, self-deprecating, and contradictory.

A lot of acoustic versions of songs at the moment, like All-American Rejects’ Dirty Little Secret. Lisa Loeb’s Stay (I Missed You.) And thanks to her, Marié Digby.

4. Your favourite music:

Getting updates on people I don’t like. Be it from people talking or reading up on their blogs. ;)

6. Favourite food:
I love Japanese food. But I eat anything. (Quote from the boyfriend, really.)

7. Define love:
I can never define it, not because it is complicated. On the contrary, love is quite simple. I can’t define it because they found the word inarticulate when they met me. :P Okay, fine, I will try. All I know, love is.. okay, I can’t. It’s a wonderful feeling you cannot describe, that’s all.

8. Define sex:
Err.. the coming together of two (or more) people? Haha. Okay, this is starting to get inappropriate!

I’m thinking how to get out of the house unnoticed.

25. Best childhood memory:
When I was about 8 years old, and Liz was just 5, her family and mine went on to Singapore for a family trip (now annual Singapore trip), and it was early in the morning. I called her up in their hotel room, which was just next door, when everyone else was getting ready for another day of shopping, and I asked her, “Ko pakai make-up kah hari ani?” which translates to “Are you wearing make-up today?” Days before, we bought Barbie make-up kits at Toys ‘R Us. LOL!

The dark, rejection, and messing up on air!

New eye candy!

Christopher Gorham (who plays Henry in Ugly Betty) is hot! And funny!

Though he’s married for seven years and have two kids.

My take on Ugly Betty

Ugly Betty didn’t spark any interest of mine when it first came out. I’m always late to jump on the bandwagon, because I prefer to have the whole season out on DVD so I don’t have to wait every week for a new episode. Okay, I’m not always like that, but I was with Ugly Betty because I couldn’t be bothered.

But.. One glorious day, which usually falls on the day that pay is out, I wasn’t particularly spoiled for choice when I paid a visit to Joey Joe, my favourite DVD store. I spotted the complete first season of Ugly Betty, and I thought, “Hm, why not?” So I did.

And I only finished watching Ugly Betty’s yesterday.

September 27th can’t come any sooner! Second season airs on that date, and trust me, I’ll be braving the Trojan viruses this time around just to see what happens in the first episode. By that, I meant downloading torrents, of course. But I’m going to ask around first before I start this bad habit again. ;)

(Warning: Either hate me for posting them up, or stop reading from this point on. Ugly Betty spoilers ahead.)

So, all right.. I’ve never had favourite episodes before on any TV series, but on Ugly Betty, I fell in love with episode 21, Secretaries’ Day. I have to say it’s mostly influenced by Henry Grubstick. Don’t you think he and Betty are adorable?!

Image above was a scene from Secretaries’ Day. When he was semi-conscious, saying the three little words. I practically shrieked when he did that! Romance on TV and in the movies, in my opinion, rarely warm the heart anymore because it seems like they are.. I don’t know, nothing new.

But when Henry, played by Christopher Gorham — trust me, this isn’t the last time his (character/real) name will be mentioned on this post, said those words, he seemed so sincere albeit semi-conscious.

Another favourite episode of mine is the season finale, 23rd episode, East Side Story. The goodbye made by Henry to Betty when he decided to move with Charlie back to Tucson! I CRIED! This season finale has to be THE season finale of all season finales of TV!

This is my second favourite scene, where Betty confessed in the copier room.

Awwww! Cute, dorky and sweet all at the same time!

And my most favourite, where Henry said goodbye (which, hopefully doesn’t get taken down), from the scene that I so wished didn’t happen, but did, but in the end was one of the things that made the finale great.

I was so sad he was leaving! Responsible, yes, but still sad! For Betty. They were just perfect for each other! Then again, like Betty said, “.. it would’ve been too easy..”

So then, based on my obsession with the Betty-Henry relationship, I made a little research on the good ‘ol Internet, and found out from here that from season two onwards Christopher Gorham (Henry) will become core regulars in the show. YEAY! Which means, it’s not really goodbye.

By the way, here’s Christopher, who plays the most adorable geek that is Henry.

“It’s just something I know.”

If I had to rate this TV show, based on this one season, I would give it five stars out of five! Love it. Don’t care what you think, I LOVE IT.

Okay, you know what? I’m going to throw in another video that make me fall in love with Henry (the character and the guy playing him!)

Sigh.. :))

Himbo & Bimbo

As I was on my way to the studio for my three hour shift last night (just in case, time check now is WAY after midnight), I was surprised to see the usually orange-carpeted walls were very much bare.

Sean was in the studio before he handed it over for Technologic (the show Aaron and I host every Saturday night, by the way), and I talked to him about the walls, and he said, “It’s like being in Saw.” Then, I said, “Maybe they’re filming Saw 4 in Brunei!”

Wishful thinking on my part. But even Aaron, who was in Bandar this time ’round, said that the walls look scary. Haha.

So if you’re wondering how it looks like before, I don’t have the before picture, but the walls’ were lined with orange carpet, like shown below.

This is just outside Pilihan FM studio.

Just one of those days when I don’t have anything good to blog about. Ha.


If you ask any of the people I’m close to, they will choose to say, among other things, that I have a bad temper. A few find this hard to believe, but I can get really ticked off by the tiniest things. I understand why, though. It’s because I only show this side to those I’m closest with. I can count these people in one hand, mind.I’m not the kind to throw tantrums, but I snap a lot.

My mom has brought this issue to my attention because she’s scared that I’ll end up with, I don’t know, was it high blood pressure? I really am not sure now what she had mentioned. She’s always worried because I snap at the smallest things too. Especially in the car.

My mom will also be able to tell if I’m angry just by a single ‘tsk’, or a tiny groan of someone being stupidly annoying. I also sometimes have colourful vocabulary, when the time calls for it. Sometimes I wonder why people don’t ask, “And you kiss your mother with that mouth?”

When I’m feeling less angry, I change some words to more friendly words, for example, “WHAT THE FUDGE?!” because I really want to keep it clean in front of the kids. *rolls eyes*

Sometimes people can tell I’m pissed when I’m really quiet. I talk a lot, so you can tell something is wrong when I’m not saying a word. But that is how I’m like with other people I’m close to, even my closest friends.

Anyway. I’m on this topic, because I just got really angry at someone I really care about for forgetting that I am on this end, chatting with him. Now, he’s not here, and I miss him badly.

I really need to get my temper in check.

A walk down memory lane

I keep boxes. In these boxes are things that I keep for memory’s sake. On them, I label the year they belong to.

Tonight, I took out the 2004 box, for no reason. I saw some pictures that didn’t belong in that year, but they all bring a rather dreary feeling they decide to call nostalgia.

My printer/photocopier/scanner has given up on me since eons ago, so I had to make full use of my camera, so excuse the quality of these pictures. (I didn’t even bother editing them in Photoshop.)

This is during sungkai with Izzah, but I don’t remember if this actually belongs in the 2004 box.

I know this is definitely not 2004. It’s 2003, from left, that’s Pram, me, and Daniel. I lost contact with these two, and I’m sorry it had to happen because they were really great guys. They were in my Biology class, back in Maktab Duli.

When I was browsing through the photos, I just had to put this one up! CLASSIC! When was this, I don’t remember! From left, Izzah, Tiq, and myself. What I remember is that this was taken in a shop at The Mall. The shop is now closed, I think they didn’t do quite well.

Liz and I. Taken during on the Raya family outings. (I remember posting this on one of my old blogs, and I remember those earrings! I wonder where they’ve gone?)

And this.. is my favourite. (How can it not be?)

That was dad keeping a lookout for my little sister. He once used to study in Preston, Lancashire, and we decide to have a roadtrip to London. This was on Trafalgar Square, back in ’97!

Aww, looking at the last picture reminds me that my family and I always meant to go back and visit the UK on holiday. We fantasized on having the fish and chips, and maybe drop by Preston and see how much it has changed.. Now that dad’s gone.. they’re all just plans.
