Beautiful evening

The pavement was wet with dewdrops from the rain. For a place usually so humid, there's a calming effect to have such cooling wind blowing in your face. All around the birds begin singing their chirp-like tune, as if a 'Canon' (Baroque piece that repeats a main melody) were taking place. Yesterday evening, Vincent and Christopher decided to ride around the neighbourhood. Afraid that they'd be kidnapped, I was asked to keep an eye on them.

"I won! *pant* I won the race! *pant*"

Qoute of the day: "I demand a rematch!"

Yes, I really like the wind after the rain. One moment, I'll be enjoying the peace. Another moment, the boys will be speeding down the road wild and loud. What a great everning to calm my nerves.

Movie Festival 2008

So here we were, at 1 Utama, where we saw a movie exhibition, promoting upcoming films. Know what's coming up?? The X Files, Star Wars, War of the Dragons, Hell Boy, Batman, probably Spiderman, Met Dave (Eddie Murphy film) and a whole lot more!!

See Spiderman??
Posing with a character from Star Wars sent a chill on our spines. You won't want it anywhere near you!! Take note of the silent sufferings in fear. By the way, he's, no, let me rephrase that, IT is a character from Alien vs Predator, if I'm not mistaken.

We had lunch at Secret Recipe. The food was good. I ate 'Chicken Cordon Bleu' something like stuffed chicken. Kind of nice for a change. Slurp!!

PS. My little cousin, Christopher, came to stay with us for a night. It puts on a smile to see him and his 'other half'(Vincent, my brother) prance around with their wild antics. XD It's the effect of being the only son in both families.

Longings to Skate

How I longed to step upon the ice.
How I longed to disappear into the realm of the Snow Queen, where icicles hang from very corner. At every moment, they capture the lights of the aurora, casting myraids of dancing rainbows upon the frozen walls. The land is misty, dim, yet so enchanting.
Cold, yes, but with every thump of your heart, it shoots a massive amount of warm blood to every inch of your body, as though it were some sort of ecstacy.
Be it beginners, or those with experience, they cannot resist the lure of the slippery stage.
The floor is a mirror on its own, calling skaters to glide across it, as if vanity were a virtue.
Oblivious to their surroundings, forgetting all of their sorrows and painful worries, releasing their burdening stress, no more troubling their thoughts.
All this imagined at the edge of the ice skating rink, after a heated argument.

I don't feel like talking about that argument yesterday. One thing, for certain, I must add. I am not one to tolerate with misjudgement or online addiction.

*Here are pictures of an ice skating class taking place. They were probably having rehearsals.*

Narnia or the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull?

It all came down to this.

To enter the world of Narnia, or the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull?

Will it be better to wander in fantasy? To follow the footsteps of the four kings and queens of a magical land to help a bethroned prince. To hear our hearts throb at the declaration of war, and watch five young people change the course of the world --- at least, the other world.

Perhaps, instead, a dose of reality? To walk with a world renown archaelogist in search of treasures beyond our wildest dreams. To discover an ancient skull that has blinded soldiers of a Union, racing to return an artifact to where it truly belongs while facing toil and trouble.

Two paths to two cinema halls, two different movies with equally good points. Yet, one who knows me would know which one I'd pick. With five of us to cast votes, it came to a fast decision.

What is the verdict?? For one, I know I'm going to be really happy next Monday.

Honestly, starting a blog is new for me. I've never heard of it until...well, I can't remember when either. I know, I know, it's something like an online journal, where people spill their thoughts, opinions and fragments of their daily life onto a site they call their own. So here I am.

I suppose a brief introduction would break the ice. My name is Rachael Lum. I'm someone who enjoys escaping into the fantasies of books, listening to music, and putting my thoughts into words. My imagination is a wild thing that can never seem to stop. At any time, it can pull me into a world of day dreams. Then again, we all do.

Goodness, I have no idea what to put in my first blogpost! Alright, I'll cut to the chase. Welcome to my blog!
