MJ Departure Song...

MJ songs still playing in local radio stations since his departure. Billy Jean, the song that makes you dance. Heal the World, the 'peace core' song. But one song that brought me to tears (and I'm sure I'm not the only one) is none other than 'One Day in your Life'.

In this video he started off saying "If you get the chance to really hear what's going on. It's really soft and slow, y'know. Just understand the lyrics."

One day in your life
Youll remember a place
Someone touching your face
Youll come back and youll look around, youll . . .

One day in your life
Youll remember the love you found here
Youll remember me somehow
Though you dont need me now
I will stay in your heart
And when things fall apart
Youll remember one day . . .

One day in your life
When you find that youre always waiting
For a love we used to share
Just call my name, and Ill be there

Youll remember me somehow
Though you dont need me now
I will stay in your heart
And when things fall apart
Youll remember one day . . .

One day in your life
When you find that youre always lonely
For a love we used to share
Just call my name, and Ill be there

......................Kleenex please.

Where is the pressurized oxygen chamber when you need it?

I just watched Michael Jackson's oxygen chamber Nat Inquirer's stunt in E! yesterday. MJ likes the bizzare headlines in tabloids. Today comes the tragic 'Prince is Dead' headlines. Unlike the previous stunts, this one is the truth.

Or it isn't...? Hmm?

Yesterday, MJ was nothing but bizarre news be it his plastic surgery blunder, the baby drop stunts, the court case on child molestation, the day when he wed the King's daughter and a lot more to be listed here. No one would ever remember him for his glorious 'Thriller' years or the time when he 'Moon Walk' and shook the world.

That was until today.

Facebook mini feed is flooded with tribute message update on Michael Jackson's death. 'RIP MJ' or the combo tribute to Farah Fawcett or quote from his music.

Star got famous. People love Star. Time passed. Star got humiliated. Star died. Star got famous.
Cruel cycle of iconic legends. Does happen to the King of Rock n Roll too, don't you think?

Michael, your music will always moonwalk in my heart and it has always been that way.

Holiday + Melbourne + June + Winter

June 15:
Plane landed in LCCT, Sepang. Feels good after jiffy 1-week of holiday. June is not really a good time for holiday since its winter, but I was up for the challenge. Three layers of 'skin' (clothes) and it lasts me quite a long walk around the city.

Boy, I got a whole lot of stories/advice to tell you all. Too bad I can't do it all in one shot. Still a lot of pending work piling up my to-work list.

Few facts/observation for travelers (especially Malaysians) traveling to Melbourne in June/July.
  1. Even with H1N1 on the rise there, locals don't really bother wearing surgical mask here. Your choice whether to wear it or blend in. My advise, just wear it in the plane, especially from the infected countries back to your country.
  2. Keep your hands clean and away from mouth, eye and nose (MEN). Unlike Malaysia, there is not that much access to sink in restaurants. So always use hand sanitizer. Avoid using hands to scratch MEN. I use the inside of my clothes I'm wearing to scratch myself. I know its not so hygienic, but its a safer option.
  3. Don't bother bringing local food (like maggi, indo mee), especially if you're from Malaysia or Asian. If you're staying more than 2 weeks, maybe you can bring some. There are variety of food in Melbourne! Food that I managed to bring in are (safely through Australian strict custom); Ayam brand's sardines, Ibumie, Ayam brand's tuna, Maggi instant porridge, Maggi cup. I ended up eating only Maggi cup. Haha!
  4. Take advantage of City Circle. Free tram ride around the city! Taxi is expensive here.
  5. Wi-fi access is hard to get in the city. They don't go pasting on their cafe/restaurant about free wi-fi. Almost all McDonalds provide free wi-fi, so Maccas it is. Tech tips: Type Maccas in address bar.
  6. Buy winter jacket/sweater/comfortable boots from Malaysia. Don't bother buying there. Cheaper here! Its SO cold in Melbourne especially June/July. For Malaysians, malls are the shelter to keep us cool from the sunny Malaysian weather. For Melbourne, its the other way round. People go to the malls to get warm!
  7. Plenty of activities for art lovers here from Wicked musical, Salvador Dali exhibition, Nutcracker, many more! Go to to find out the latest event.
  8. Drink plenty of water. If water is not your thing, go for juice.
  9. Bring toiletries/travel kit from your country in advance. Expensive stuff here.
  10. Moisturize lips and body. The squeeze-in lipbalm compared to the finger dipping is better! No germs in contact.
Hmm...that's all I can think of now. To those who will be traveling to Melbourne, have a safe journey and don't answer "I'm doing great!!!" the locals when they ask you "How are you doing?". It's just their way of saying "Hello". LOL!

Who does that? Only Freddy Rodriguez.

He is one heck of an guy/actor. Freddy Rodriguez. I know most of Getty (Betty/Gio) fans would agree with me. My guilty pleasure - TV time with my linty throws and watch Ugly Betty.

I never liked Betty first and second boyfriend, Walter and Henry. They're just plain boring and predictable but when Giovanni Rossi played by the kid-faced Freddy Rodriguez enter Betty's life, my heart raced from 0-100 beat per second. Ok, now that's an odd expression.

What makes Freddy Rodriguez SO irresistible? Guys, watch and learn.

1. He would put on his piercing eye look. From a glance it looks like an angry look, but that's his signature passionate look.

2. When he gaze at a girl, he has this 3-5 secs rule. He would fix his eye on that girl and pretend that no one else exist. Mano y mujer (man to woman). During this duration, that gaze tells SO much how much a guy falls in love with that person. Is he in pain? Is he lost? NO, HE IS IN LOVE!

3. Now comes to the romantic part. The kiss. Besos! Quanto besos! LOL! Since Freddy is a Puerto Rican descent, a hint of espanol is must. You know I never actually get the "you're the air that I breathe" thing in the lyrics of most love songs. But heck, he would kiss/breathe that special lady as if she's an oxygen tank. REALLY!

OMG! And here is Matt...the new guy, played by Danied Eric Gold. I like him cos he reminds me of Josh Groban. My vote for Matt, but Giovanni Rossi gotta stay!

Toy Story 3 in 2010

Toy Story 3 will be debut in cinema worldwide in June 18, 2010 and the more great news is that it will also be in 3D! Yay!

Traveling preparation and H1N1

I've been a busy bee lately, working, planning and researching and contemplating about the pesky flu, the H1N1. Only 1 week to Melbourne intro trip; can't wait for it to start and also can't wait for it to end.

Since its going to be early winter in Melbourne this June, a person from sunny-all-year-resident like me need to prepare for the cold, unpredictable weather such as Melbourne. Add it with H1N1 makes the planning goes crazier.

I just got back from a pharmacy and bought a few essential stuff for travel. As for now, I think I might stick with over the counter meds. Not brave enough to resort to flu shot since word has it that there might/is a mercury content inside the shot. We'll see. Perhaps I visit a doctor before flying. Hmm.

So I consulted the pharmacist on what supplement is good for travelers and she suggested me to take Esberitox N, a chewable (also can be swallowed and dissolved) prescription-free supplement. She said its good in strengthening the immune system and preventing cough, sore throat and flu. One board costs me MYR 15 (US$4). To be taken 3 times a day. I was holding a soluble Redoxon vitamin C and decided to put it back in the shelf since Esberitox N is good enough, according to her.

Even this article 17 Ways to Avoid Swine Flu and Why Not to Freak Out recommends this medication.

Good thing I found this particular hand disinfectant called Softa-Man. It does not only work to kill bacteria but also viruses. This particular brand is used in Korea during Avian Flu. Click on the picture to see full description. Available in Caring Pharmacy, IOI Mall Puchong. I've tried looking for this in Watson's or Guardian but its not available there.

Wipes, wipes, wipes! The door knobs, handphone, flight seats...

Er, never know right?

Mask shopping will continue later. I just gonna bring one or two for the heck of it.

I'm a bit skeptics of shots (eg flu shots), so I rather go for the over-the-counter supplements, plenty of water, healthy food and weekly yoga :D. So many dodgy shortcuts these days, you never know how it may effect your system.
