Spotlight: On The Pierces

Now why is it that I have never talked about this duo?

After the first song I've heard from these two (Secret), I was completely hooked.

They have a style completely their own, and that shows creativity.

The duo comprises of two sisters - Allison and Catherine Pierce who hail from Birmingham, Alabama.

So far, they have had 3 albums - The Pierces, Light of the Moon, and Thirteen Tales of Love and Revenge.

The duo appeared on Gossip Girl, performing two of their songs (and personal favourites of mine) - Secret and Three Wishes.

What I like about this band is that they are unconventional. And I love that.

This is a very sinister song that talks about keeping secrets.

The beauty of it isn't that it sounded evil.

The thing is, it's meant to sound evil. Yet it's just so cool you can't help but like it.

I predict great things for this band. Not in the mainstream, I think.

But Indie. Definitely Indie.

BREAKING NEWS: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Trailer is OUT!

OH MY GOSH I CANNOT WAIT. *squeals like deranged fan girl*

Please oh please don't screw this up like you did the previous ones!!!! *prays*


You know, I had a variety of choices to choose from.

I could've pursued art,

Painting objects, landscapes, animals, people.... Call it what you will.

I could've pursued music.

Continued my violin lessons,

Get my diploma,

Join a band,

Tried out for the Malaysian Youth Orchestra.

I could've pursued something in science,

Be a doctor, dermatologist, dentist....

Something my family members thought would be "respectable".

But here I am, in Advertising.

Due to starting internship, and possibly my career.

I'm not regretting.

But there's this small part of me that's yearning every now and then,

Just every now and then,

To perform once again.

To stand in the limelight, and play my violin.

I'm not sure if it's ever gonna happen,

So I'm waiting.

I guess the whole passion in music never left me.

Come to think of it, it's in my blood.

My entire family loves music.

About half of us can play some instrument or other.

I miss it so much, I feel as though I could break if I don't do something about this.

Fingers crossed. :)

In the years to come,
Will you think about these moments that we shared?
In the years to come,
Are you gonna think it over,
And how we lived each day with no regrets?
Nothing lasts forever though we want it to,
The road ahead holds different dreams for me and you.

Sometimes goodbye though it hurts in your heart is the only way for destiny,
Sometimes goodbye though it hurts is the only way now for you and me.
Though its the hardest thing to say,
I'll miss your love in every way.
So say goodbye,
But don't you cry,
'cause true love never dies.

In a year from now,
Maybe there'll be things we'll wish we'd never said.
In a year from now,
Maybe we'll see each other, standing on the same street corner though it rains.
Each and every end is always written in the stars,
If only i could stop the World i'd make this last.

Sometimes goodbye though it hurts in your heart is the only way for destiny,
Sometimes goodbye though it hurts is the only way now for you and me.
Though it's the hardest thing to say,
I'll miss your love in every way.
So say goodbye,
But don't you cry,
'cause true love never dies.

And when you need my arms to run into,
I'll come for you.
Nothing will ever change the way i feel.

Sometimes goodbye though it hurts in your heart is the only way for destiny,
Sometimes goodbye though it hurts is the only way now for you and me.
Though it's the hardest thing to say,
I'll miss your love in every way.
So say goodbye,
But don't you cry,
Because a true love never dies.

Hey you, yeah you.
You're not gonna read this, I think.
But this expresses exactly how I'm feeling.
So I dedicate this beautiful song to you.
I wish it didn't have to turn out this way,
But it's a choice you've made, so I won't stop you.

They say that if you love a person, you'll let them go.
So I'm letting you go.
Smile, be yourself, don't ever lose yourself.
As long as you're happy, I'm happy.
I don't care how you're feeling.
But I know exactly how I feel.
I'll always, always love you.

In the End,

After getting hurt,

You gotta pick yourself up,

You gotta know you have to move on,

Despite the hurt,

The pain,

How much you still don't understand,

And how much you're wondering why you're doing this.

You just have to.

Because the clock still ticks,

The sun still rises,

Just as surely as it will set.

You know you just have to.

So stand up,


And move on.

'Cos you're stronger than this.

In a Serious Need to Vent

I tossed,

I turned,

I counted sheep.

Nothing worked.

Conclusion, I can't blardy sleep.


And I think I know why. -.-

Guilty Pleasure

This is it, I'm coming out of the closet.

I love Korean music.

I swoon over the hot Korean guys.

I am a (borderline) Korean fan girl.

Big bang rocks kay.

Especially Top. Mm that voice. ;)

Here their latest video, and I must say, they are getting better and better.

I'm happy to say

That emo Eileen has gone!

Yes! No more annoyingly emo posts because she has packed her bags and moved to Antarctica. :D

In comes completelynonsensicallysenselessfilledwithtakdekerjaness Eileen.

*jumps for joy* Clap lah! Feel happy for me! :D

Unfortunately I am super bored.

Like seriously, I can go watch my plants grow, and that would be more interesting.

I feel so jobless (padahal I do have a job lah, but I called for another day off cos my wisdom tooth is aching)

On that note, why do they call it a wisdom tooth?

It's not like I've gotten any wiser.

And all four of mine have grown out.

Am I supposed to be four times wiser? -.-

I would totally yank out all four of my teeth, but apparently I'd die of blood loss.

Apparently after pulling one out, I have to stay in for 4 days.

Which means, I need to rest a total of 16 days when I do yank all four teeth.

That would be the lesser of two evils, considering that the first time one of my wisdom teeth grew out, I was in so much pain that I had fever.

But then there's another problem,

I'm going for internship in 2 weeks lah.

I suppose my best bet would be to yank at least ONE of them out lah.

Which means I need to go for surgery.

Which means I might not be able to talk for days.

I don't think I have a problem with not talking,

It's just that, it's really really annoying.

Especially when I'm annoyed with someone and I dearly wish to scold them about it but I can't.

I can totally imagine the scene:

Random College Mate (RCM): AUNTIE EILEEN!!!!!

Me And My Muffled Mouth (MAMMM): MMMMMPHHH!!!

My Cynically Annoyed Self (MCAS): Shaaaddaaaaap lah!

RCM: Oh that's right, YOU CAN'T TALK! HAHAHAHA!


MCAS: Evil being, spawn of Satan, I CURSE YOU!

RCM: Poor little Eileen, can't speak. HAHAHAH!



Yes that just about sums it up.

Don't get any ideas, you.

Be My Escape

Yes yes this blog is getting super depressing.

Here's... Ah, an attempt to lighten the mood.

I love Relient K. :)

However, I prefer this version of the song, compared to the original one.

This song is meant to be sung slow, I feel.

The original one had too many instruments, and was sung a bit too fast.

Not to say it wasn't good. It's just that the orchestral placement, and tempo were a bit off.

As in, it didn't suit the melody, and especially, the deeply meaningful lyrics.

I mean, I heard the original first and I thought it was cool.

Then I found the acoustic, and I thought it sounded perfect.

So many nights,

Of going between emotions,

Of wondering,

Of hurting,

Of insomnia,

Of being confused,

Of crying,

She finally decided to let go.

He never contacted,

She wondered what happened.

She worried,

She feared,

She hurt.

She felt that he was a stranger, no longer known to her.

So she decided it's time to let go.

At least there was a direction.

Instead of going in between holding on and letting go.

Because it tore her apart.

Because holding on felt so much more painful.

She fought,

God knows how she fought.

But it was no use.

So she raised the white flag,

And left.

It was all a dream.

A lie.


Am no fluffy bunnies,


Happy endings,

Riding off into the sunset with your knight in shining armor person.

People who know me, would know that the last thing I am,

is girly.

Like the all things pink and cutesy and princessy.

Nope. Sorry wrong number.

Hello, I'm one of the largest cynics on Earth. Ask anyone.

I don't believe in happy endings.

I think that every story with a happy ending is complete bullshit.

Despite (and I may sound hypocritical) how satisfying you feel when you read a happy ending.

I think people made that happy ending just to make us all feel better about ourselves.

To think, oh if this happened to so-and-so (insert dreamy hero/heroine name here),

It can happen to me.

Hence, hope (cue shining light with angels singing in background)


Problems don't go away.

They come and go,

Disturb the calm.

Cause discord among people,

Ties severed,

Hearts broken.

It comes to a point when you have to realize that after slaying one dragon,

A newer, meaner one comes out.

So you can't expect to ride into the sunset peacefully and nothing else is going to disturb your happy lives.

The only thing we can do about it, is to solve the problem.



I don't believe in sitting, waiting, and dreaming.

Hoping the problem solves itself.

You may as well crossover to lah-lah-land.

I slay my own monsters.

But in solving that problem comes another problem:

It depends if both parties want to solve it.

If one wants to and the other doesn't, what's the point?

So there's another problem,

The party that wants to solve the problem has to think of a way to solve that problem,

But how does the party do it when the other party is unwilling?

And in that problem comes another problem.

And if that problem isn't solved, the problem doesn't go away.

Am I making sense?

Probably not.

Bottom line, happy endings, no such thing.

I never believed in it, and I never will.

Besides, who says every story needs an ending?

If there's an ending to each of our stories,

It'd be death.

Sounds depressing, don't it?

Now there's another problem...

And again I'm not making any sense.

Question 1

Dear Girl, after a fight with your loved one, and he never contacts you for days, what would you do?

A. Call and apologise even though he's at fault too. Beg him to come back to you.
B. Call and tell him it's over
C. Bitch about him, take revenge.
D. Ignore the idiot and enjoy yourself. Be at your most awesome. He doesn't exist to you any more. If you don't exist to him, why should he exist to you?

I choose D.

Friday, June 11, 2010


Goes on.

Move on.

Don't stop.

Don't quit.

Keep going.

Keep moving.

Don't think.

Don't feel.

Just keep going.

The sun will still rise,

Just as surely it will set.

Just as surely everything keeps going.

So you keep going.

But why does it hurt so bad?

Enough's Enough

I need to get a grip.

No more childishness.

I'm 20.

I shouldn't do this.

Taxi Driver Rapes Girls, Forces Them To Be Sex Slaves

SIX Malaysian high school students were allegedly forced to be a taxi driver's sex

slaves after he reportedly raped them and threatened to release videos of the act if they told anyone.

The Star said today the 54-year-old taxi driver reportedly picked up girls, aged between 15 and 17, outside their schools and drove them to his house in Taman Muda, Ampang, telling them he had to attend to an emergency.

It was alleged he would then rape the girls and film them on his phone, using the recordings to threaten the girls into giving him sexual favours for almost a year, police said.

One of the alleged victims decided to go to the police after confiding in a close friend, who asked her why she took the same taxi all the time.

Two of the girls attended the same school and lodged a police complaint on May 20, a third victim came forward on May 29.

Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Com Abdul Jalil Hassan said they believed there was an accomplice who made the recordings, which reportedly showed the victims screaming, crying and pleading with the cabbie to release them.

The suspect, who has been a taxi driver for 17 years and had no previous criminal records, lived alone. He was remanded for seven days until Monday at the Ampang Jaya district police station. The taxi had also been taken to the station, The Star said.

Because the recordings showed six different girls, police were urging the three other victims to come forward.

Honestly sickening.

And I take the taxi when I have no transport.

I have no idea what's happening to Malaysia.

What Words Are

I heard this a long time from a friend.

Expanded the first sentence.

Words are just words when the person who said them didn't mean them.

They don't hold water,

They don't hold anything,

and they never will.

People will say so many things,

Make so many promises to you,

And never mean them,

Never keep them.

Never say anything you don't mean,

Especially not to a girl.

Never make a promise to anyone,

And break it.

Especially not to a girl.

Because her heart will break.

Because she was waiting with baited breath for you to keep that promise.

Because she hoped so much that you would keep that promise.

Because a promise to her is a test of how much you love her.

A fulfilled promise, is a measure of how important she is to you.

A broken promise, shows how much you fail at loving her.

Or maybe not at all.

Your excuses,

Your so-called reasons,

Were they really so important,

So much more important than your girl?

If they were, then she really isn't all that important.

Never make a promise that you can't fulfill.

You'll save the heartache.

If you wanted her to trust you,

You shouldn't have promised.

Keep this in mind.

Before you lose your hold on her.

And she leaves with someone who deserves her.

But if she's not important, you wouldn't care,

Would you?

"Be careful little lips, what you say;
For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray."

Cross My Heart

And hope to God,

There will be a better tomorrow.

Cross My Heart,

I tell no lies.

I will always be by your side.

Cross my heart,

Swear to God,

I love you, that I do.

Cross My Heart,

I say to you,

I'll never break my promise to you.

Won't you cross your heart and fulfill all those promises too?

A Fire Extinguisher vs. Human Life

KUALA LUMPUR: A man’s desperate attempt to save a woman from her burning car was in vain because petrol kiosk attendants refused to lend him their fire extinguishers despite his pleadings.

The tragic 3.30am incident yesterday happened after an accident involving the woman’s Perodua Myvi, a couple’s Toyota Vios and a lorry with two men.

The accident, on the flyover along Jalan Cheras near Jalan Loke Yew, caused the Myvi to catch fire.

Grim aftermath: The burnt car after the accident in Cheras early yesterday morning

Among the earliest to arrive on the scene was 31-year-old Teo Chai Yong.

He was on the phone with the emergency hotline operator when he heard the frightened screams of “Tolong! Tolong! Help me!” from a woman in a Myvi. Sparks flew from under the car.

Teo quickly drove to the nearest 24-hour petrol station, less than 500m away, hoping to find a fire extinguisher.

“As I ran up to the paying counter, I saw four fire extinguishers behind the glass door. An attendant was on the other side.

“I pleaded with him to let me have the fire extinguisher and screamed that someone was pinned inside a burning car.

“But he just stared at me and kept saying he was not allowed to open the door after hours,” Teo said.

In desperation, Teo even offered to buy the extinguishers and showed the attendant his identity card.

Shortly, a second attendant showed up beside the first man and told Teo to call the fire department if there was a fire.

In frustation, Teo rushed back to the accident scene, only to see the car, with the woman still inside, engulfed in flames.

“She was still screaming but I could do nothing. I just stood there, her screams grew more frantic before fading away,” he said in a telephone interview.

BH Petrol’s managing director Tan Kim Thiam, when contacted, expressed regret over the incident at one of their petrol stations.

He said robberies were common in those hours.

“The staff were concerned and did not respond to the request as they could not see the accident,” said Tan, who declined to comment further.

City traffic police investigations chief Deputy Supt Abdullah Roning said the woman was burnt beyond recognition and her personal identification documents were also lost in the fire.

“We believe she was a 27-year-old college student from Sarawak,” said the city police prosecution division head.

The driver of the Toyota Vios and his girlfriend were also seriously injured and were rushed to Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia here.

The case is being investigated under Section 41 (1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for reckless or dangerous driving.

So they were more afraid of a robbery than a person dying. I hope your conscience rests well with this.

Lady Gaga = Satanic

Got this from Deirdre Wong.

Honestly, I laughed when I saw this.

And no, it's not because I believed that Lady Gaga was satanic all along.

Just to be clear, yes I am Christian. No, I am not bashing my own religion. No, I have no problem whatsoever with the religion itself.

But seriously???? All the social issues and problems happening in the world and you people choose to uncover this??

So who are you to judge? According to the Bible, we're not supposed to judge........ Now open that book and tell me I'm wrong.

It kinda looks as though some extremists really hated Lady Gaga and decided to distort her lyrics.

You know, I think there's a continent called Africa somewhere on Earth where people are dying of starvation......... But apparently dying people aren't important enough for you people to help.
