TONIGHT, I SEALED MY IDENTITY AS A YOUTUBE FANGIRL <3

I was never that big a fan of David Choi – I liked some of his songs and all, but twas never crazy over him like I am WONGFU & KEVJUMBA (<33) – but after watching him live tonight, I’VE BECOME A FAN!!!!

And for those people who are like HUH WHOS DAVID CHOI!? (zz)

This is David Choi:

He is a youtube singer/songwriter and probably one of the more famous ones on youtube. (+one of the more famous asian-americans on youtube) Subscribe to him here.

He performed tonight at TAB:

I really like this place other than the fact they kept coming around every 5 minutes asking us if we want to order more drinks. -.- I was on the brink of carrying out Marcus’ suggestion of WHERES YOUR MANAGER. I AM A PAYING CUSTOMER.

The drinks:

THE BEST DRINK IN THE WORLD. Its called Toblerone. Baileys + kahlua + milk + honey + all other sweet chocolatey amazingness.

The company:

The man:

Majority of what made me really like DChoi was that he was so funny and down to earth. AND SMALL AND CUTE. He messed up quite a few times on the high notes and he was so paiseh about it he couldn’t finish his song properly HAHA but it was really funny. + he had alot of audience interaction/Q&A. + THE CALIFORNIAN ACCENT IS ALWAYS WIN – which Geri pointed out reminded us of Andrew :'(((

Did I mention he sounds really good live? YAY. His set included WON’T EVEN START & THAT GIRL (which are the only 2 songs I know ALL the lyrics for), and a song about a girl picking her nose which I thought was really cute. YAYY.

I BOUGHT HIS CD! So he could autograph <3

The queue that formed after.

My semi-fangirl moment.

ALL OF US + DCHOI!

{FANGIRL RANTING STARTING RIGHT ABOUT NOW}

SO HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY AND STARSTRUCK BECAUSE WE GOT TO TALK TO HIM & we told him that he should have sung DANCE TO THIS SONG!!!!! THEN WE SAID HE SHOULD DO AN ACOUSTIC COVER OF DTTS (which I am trying to get Marcus & Geri to do) AND HE SAID THAT THEY WANT TO DO ONE BUT KEVJUMBA LIVES FAR AWAY FROM THEM. AND THEN I SAID OH WHY DONT ASK YOU ASK WES AND TED TO RAP INSTEAD AND CUT KEVJUMBA OUT. LIKE WES AND TED ARE MY FRIENDS LIKE THAT. I ACT COOL ONLY. LIKE A TRUE BLUE YOUTUBE FANGIRL.

<3

It really was quite surreal seeing him in real life when usually I’m so used to watching him on youtube.. and he talks to you like you’re just a normal friend. SUPER FANGIRL MOMENT + TRYING TO KEEP COOL RIGHT THERE.

I was telling Geri that if Wong Fu comes to Singapore, and they have a autograph/photo session like this, I swear I’ll be too STARSTRUCK+FANGIRL+HYPERVENTILATING+DYING to even say anything. OMG.

OKAY IM REALLY HAPPY NOW + RANT OVER + I WANTED TO BLOG THIS BEFORE THE MAGIC FADED.  GOODNIGHT.

LOOK, YOU CAN GET ADDICTED TO ACADEMIA. Its all about presentation.

/edit

I LIKE THIS ONE. Past-positive/negative, present hedonism and future-oriented. I THINK IT MAKES ALOT OF SENSE (+the whole part twd the end about technology and the next change in generation and culture).

So addicted now. This is all Quentin’s fault.

The Tube & Asians

15/05/2010

HOKAY! Just did some housekeeping on my blog. Updated the sidebar a little, and put my links back on. Did some clearing up and adding on of the links as well. I deleted those blogs which have been stagnant for a long while, hope you guys don’t mind. Also, if you want me to link you or UN-link you, please let me know! Your wish is my command.

The other thing I did was add in a new blogroll section called TUBE. Essentially its the links to my FAVOURITE Youtube channels (post in the making soon!). I thought I’d share them with you! My top three are definitely 1. Community Channel, Wong Fu Productions and Kevjumba. What can I say? Asian pride rears its slanty-eyed head again. Actually, 10/12 of the channel links are by Asians or mixed-asians! We are taking over the world FO SHO.

Anyway here’s some snapshot lovin to my favourite subscriptions! <3

They truly make my world a happier place.

Ever since an email sent by Dakor Yap to the family declaring every 2nd and 4th Sunday afternoon as FAMILY BOARD GAME DAY (FBGD), things have gotten quite exciting around the household.

Tonight we once again embarked on our favourite game so far:

And got introduced to a new game:

I LOVE BOARD GAMES. THEY ARE INTELLECTUALLY STIMULATING AND EXTREMELY FUN. Hoorah for FBGD! (Extra hoorah for 24 hour Mcdelivery to accompany us through these riveting few hours).

Brothers & Sisters

09/03/2010

Remember my post on how YJ and I spent Valentine’s Day?

I don’t think how I mentioned how I found out about Orgo, and this is once again backdated to 4 months ago (yes, I’m forgetful and lazy), when we had our once-in-a-loooooong-time Brother/Sister outing – consisting of the 3 pairs of siblings. Moris, Teohs & Yaps.

Mae introduced the place to us and made the reservation, and it was pretty awesome cos our first time there and we were given the GLASS ROOM to be seated in, complete with fluffy red cushions, background music, and a beautiful view of the Singapore city skyline.

SISTERS/BROTHERS

We ordered drinks & dessert; this was the bread pudding and the souffle, I think? Honestly, the desserts were terrible. Stick to the drinks. That’s what they are known for anyway.

Every year we always take every opportunity that the 6 of us around to take a brother/sister shot. Over the years now I have quite a collection! Reminds us of how our roots I guess. When we were just kids running around together in church.. those were the wonder years :)

BIRTHDAY HIGHLIGHT #4:

CLICK FOR FULL DESCRIPTION OF THE ITEM. (I promise you won’t regret. Might be a bit M-18 though)

American born, but schooled abroad, Eric retains many European sensibilities, including Italian bravado, French table manners, and German soccer skills.”

I will not disclose who are the people who gave me this present, but I would like to qualify that I’m pretty sure they had did NOT have the full understanding of what this lip gloss was meant to convey and represent. HAHAHAHAHA. I LOVE IT. SO HILARIOUS.
