More Goong and KTV

Even though I've finished with 宫 for about a week or so, I'm still very much mesmerised by the show, and by the music as well. =) Oh well, I guess that's why the show is so popular and successful. Sadly, I read that there isn't going to be a continuation. Goong S isn't a continuation at all. And even if there really is a continuation come next year, I doubt that the cast will be the same. =( That is because Yoon Eun Hye, the lead female actress had some issues with the management company, and had left the company. Argh... why?? why?? It wouldn't be the same without the original cast! =(

Anyway, I had been slacking for the past few days.. lol.. maybe it's because that the progressive PhD seminar presentation is over, and thus I'm still on my relaxing mood - taking things slow and easy. Argh.. probably it's about time to switch gear. Aja fighting! And it's only 1 month, 3 weeks, and 3 more days till my dear come over to mark the start of the GREAT HOLIDAY! So, I must work hard now! aja aja fighting fighting!

Just last Tuesday, I did something for the first time in my life. I went to for Karaoke! Yeah... I'm a mountain tortoise alright.. lol.. 27 years of age, and never been to a KTV before till now. Oh well, I can't sing, and I can't bear to listen to my voice - so what for go to one? And my friends are mostly not the KTV type either. Couple with all the negative image about KTV being dodgy, being places where trouble brews, all the more I'm not going. But, since last Tuesday (13 Nov) was Cat's birthday, and both Emily and her were like asking to go, and so I relented. And so we went to this 'Big Echo' KTV somewhere near Telstra building besides Hyde Park, after our late lunch at Kura III somewhere near Chinatown. Kura is a Japanese restaurant... hmm.. the price is relatively ok, and the portion is big! After a bowl of Unagi and egg don, my tummy is truly satisfied!

And so the 8 of us (including me) went to the KTV with our tummy full. And the rest, especially Cat the birthday girl, was like happily singing me? well... like I say, I couldn't stand hearing my own voice and so I didn't... just sat there listening to their singing, and humming along here and there etc... and probably singing to myself once a pathetic right? haha.. oh well, I know my limits, and I don't wanna embarrass my myself. And so, there I was slipping away the vodka... wrong choice! After 4 hours of vodka, I had to make my way to the toilet to puke! Hahaha.. terrible terrible. Luckily I still know what's going on to some degree, and feeling that the singing etc is really making me sick with the alcohol and such, I stayed in the toilet for almost 2 hours. LOL... puking occasionally! No choice, I don't wanna go back to the room half drunk, and disgrace myself. So, rest in the toilet cubicle for a couple of hours (luckily the cubicle was clean!), then went back to the room feeling much better. Hahaha... that certainly reminds me not to drink so much! Still, come to think of it, wat a disgrace! oh well, all in the name of fun. =)

Went on to sing a couple of songs together with the rest of the folks such as 朋友 etc. They kept on asking me to sing, and it wouldn't really be very nice to reject again and again. And furthermore, the rest are all singing together.. so effectively, they would drown my voice.. great. =)Don't ask me why I hate to hear my voice so much... I just don't know.. I'm not used to it I guess. Every time I hear it, I feel like laughing at myself, and the more I laugh, the more I think my voice is strange and weird, and the more I laugh after that... and so the cycle continues. =)

Finally, everything ends at 1am, and to make this a memorable event for Cat, we (or rather me) came up with an idea to 'sabo' her. We made her tell us 21 cat cartoon characters since it's her 21st bday, and because we know for sure she wouldn't be able to complete it! Wahahaha...(evil laughter). So her forfeit is to act like a lesbian and approach a girl for her phone number! LOL... Evil right?! haha... and she is also quite sporting to accept her forfeit as well. And so, we singled out a Asian girl walking alone on the street (ard 1am already) and asked her to complete her task. Haha.. according to what Cat told us, the girl was quite shock when Cat complimented her, and asking for her number! LOL... who wouldn't, especially if it's from the same gender!? And the 'victim' kept on saying no to Cat's poor girl.. I think the girl will have some kinda trauma rather than Cat.. hahaha.. oh well.. poor girl....
