che det


dear diary,

Many times i've regretted speaking my mind and tell myself that maybe i should just shut my mouth. But, Mahathir does it and in doing so has shaken a nation to its core because otherwise we would still be living on trees. There, great excuse to keep bitchin'.

king of cali


dear diary,

i've loved evan rachel wood's acting ever since i first saw her in Thirteen. Amazing young actress, and i like that she's crazy enough to date marilyn manson. Not that i would. I'd date eminem tho.

I'm not quite sure what's up with me and uber slow dramas of late, getting sick of predictable movies. I guess.

Ze! on Art Star

dear diary,

My interview is up on this blog called Art Star.

"A feisty chick that's emerging as a vibrant trend setter and innovative musician, Ze! pops in as a force to be reckoned with in 2010. With a synth-pop club sound, the MIA comparisons are limited but her individual touch and boy lusting streams through her songs and art. Take a sec and enjoy our chat with the lovely Ze!"

cleavage


dear diary,

I did an interview today, and it's one of those where they want to make it 'controversial' so yeah, i gave them controversial. Blah.

But they did most of the talking which annoys me because they're radio DJs who get to speak on air every freaking day anyway so let me talk for fuck's sake! I mentioned that i wrote I Am Glam which was written about my frustrations toward the local music industry. They reacted before I could finish and i feel that they took my meaning wrongly, like i think that the scene doesn't mean shit to me which isn't the point.

I have spent many years trying to break through in the local scene but never quite cut it. I felt terribly trapped, out of place and I couldn't understand why. I wrote the song at the time, recorded it with Ruben, sung it at my first gigs in europe and noticed that people loved the sound, the image and the attitude that came with it. I learned the long and hard way that it was never the scene that I had to change, but it was me who had to. So, I am no longer frustrated over the local scene because i've moved on and because it is what it is. But, that's what 'I Am Glam' is about and I can never change that because it's now part of my history.

What I don't get is, if you're planning on doing a 'controversial' radio program to sell the show then why do it on indie artists nobody knows about? Do you see tabloids written about nobodies? No, because people don't care about people they don't know about. I think that's common sense. Plus, you're meant to be the chart show the indies are scrambling to get their songs on and then you call us up for an interview only to diss us when we've already got a pretty low self-esteem. Very classy, guys. How bout you find some balls to do the same on the superstars?

And they went on to say this; if you can't make it in Malaysia, you're never ever gonna make it elsewhere.

Oh, really?

the reunion

dear diary,
it was a fabulous weekend. i was one-half of the organizing committee of our high school reunion which finally took place last saturday (after much drama), and it turned out to be super fun! nothing made me happier than seeing my friends' smiley faces, proven by the millions of pictures we took throughout the night. Made us girls even happier to learn that one of us now works at Gucci, well hello best friend! Lol. Here's to another 10! :)
p/s: also heard that 'I Am Glam' has entered the Hitz.fm MET 10 charts at no.8 today. Double joy!

octopus


dear diary,

i've forgotten how mentally draining it is to complete a full-length album. And, it's not like i'm working completely alone either (thank goodness), but i just CANNOT wait to get this baby out! I say it's mostly mentally tiring rather than physical because it's 90% decisions. Librans suck at making decisions, fyi. It's been 3 and half years in the making now, cause Ruben and I first started working on 'Boys I Like' in summer 2006.

Being impatient has to be one of my worst qualities, or not?

he's just not that into you


dear diary,

i climbed into bed and put this movie on my laptop cause i thought i haven't seen it before but i have. Which goes to show how much of an impact it has made in my life. (boo). Anyhow, i think us girls like to think that the world revolves around us by analyzing every step a guy makes like he purposely wants to make us think what we think. But, at the end of the day it is NEVER just about us. Nothing is ever about somebody else, we're always our own center of the universe. A guy could be nice to you, and genuinely not give a shit... at the same time there are those out there who does give a shit, but doesn't quite know how to show it. People are complicated and never so simple.

This could only apply to men who've got it together, knows what he wants and isn't afraid to go for it. In which case, we'd have ourselves a winner :)

dear diary,

just saw Up the movie, cutest movie of the year. The 'dead wife' in the movie reminded me of myself and my own enthusiasm for adventure. If i could travel the world in my house floated by thousands of helium balloons, i'd just wanna leave above the clouds forever and a day.

for your entertainment


dear diary,

adam lambert is beginning to annoy me
. Yes, i love the bitchy attitude but not when it's faked. He's taking things a little too far and trying a little too hard. If you wanna get BJ-ed on stage, obviously national tv ain't the place.

But i gotta say i love the makeup on his cover, sensational! ;)

cyd jouny


dear diary,

I am a sucker for sneaker-meet-stiletto boots, and I have found THE designer for it and quite possibly the original maker who released the first of its kind in 1995. Meet french designer, Cyd Jouny. I discovered him thanks to this book by Linda O'Keeffe (where you'll find all you need to know about the history of ladies' shoes).

In it is another, rare design I am now going to make it my 'holy grail'. I couldn't find a pic of it via google, so i'll scan it when i ain't lazy. Meanwhile, i invite you to drool over this piece of gorgeousness with me.

me, the undomestic goddess

dear diary,

I LOVED THIS BOOK! The reason I picked it up would be obvious - I am so undomestic it's not even funny but it was nice that the gal in this book was far worse. Heck, maybe I ain't all that bad after all.

Writer Sophie Kinsella definitely got me crackin' - a must read for other goddesses like me! ;)



p/s: Just discovered the movie's gonna be out next year. Awesome!

Check out my Q&A with Fifi on this awesome blog, Previously Owned.

+ this lady blogger Fashion X K8 left this comment;

"Incredible interview Fi, I actually watched the MTV show Styl'd once and distinctly remember liking the music. She definitely has an amazing Santogold-esque way of styling and viewing personal style which is wonderful to see in a young 'electro' pop star." - K8

j.k. rowling


dear diary,

At my age, Joanne Kathleen Rowling has struggled through a lot, mostly with her personal life then, in order to get to where she is today. Salute!

"Joanne was in an emotional whirldwind. She had just turned twenty-six. She was once again out of work. The relationship with her boyfriend once again seemed to be going nowhere. And she was in a constantly saddened state because of the death of her mother.

The only real joy in her life was Harry Potter.

She had continued to work diligently on the book, with boxes overflowing with ideas, names, and fragments of stories. Joanne was feeling confident in what she had jotted down and began seriously contemplating writing the novel. But she was town between living out her dream of a life dedicated to writing and the guilt she was feeling at not being like everyone else."
- Marc Shapiro (Author of J.K. Rowling, The Wizard Behind Harry Potter)


... what wasn't mentioned there is that, on top of all that, she had a daughter to take care of. A lot changed for me when I finished reading this book few months ago. Not because it was the best writing in the world, but because we thought the person behind Harry Potter must be one hell of a man. But it wasn't, it's one hell of a WOMAN.
