Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
The road not taken. Sure you're gonna look back and say 'damn I'll leave it for another day', but you noe you won't be able to.
But where would the United States be on the world map if it was not for a sailor named Chistopher Columbus?
Which route to take? The road taken by everyone, said to be full of bumps and potholes but a pot of gold awaits at the end of the route? Or the one full of a mystery you've always wanted to discover and explore, with the risk of it ending with no pot of gold and leaving you with nothing and nothing only?
Too bad Google Earth doesn't have this place on it's map.

'You rock!' normally means that someone is awesome and you wanna convey your appreciation towards that person.
But wut if 'rock' is just a name for another object? Like in the context of 'You pig!'
Now, all of a sudden, 'You rock!' sounds like you're saying that someone is like a rock, either
as stubborn as a rock, or as cold-hearted as a rock.

Or they can degrade, or even worse they can teach hate...."

Fuck'ed up, ain't it?

The way they cut through foodstuff look so easy. It's like all food are made of butter.
Their workflow is millimeter perfect that you'll think your cutting board is too small. Yes indeed...
Tried making this steamed fish thingy Jamie Oliver on The Naked Chef kept making (repeats, lol).
The heat:time ratio thing never got to me. I never got a hang of how long to cook stuff at what level of heat.
I thought: hrmm 100 C is boiling point, I'll put it at 150 for 25 minutes. Fish should cook that fast.
Fark. I took it out when the thing rings. The thin parts were cooked, the thicker parts were still fckin stiff and transparent. By the time I wanna put the package back in the oven has cooled off (it's a pretty small version). And I dun wanna wait 25 more minutes for the oven to heat up water to evaporate and cook the fish that way (latent heat, anyone? takes time...). Dumped it into the big frying pan and juz finished it off.
My god the next time I'm cooking fish, pan fry is the way to go. 5 minutes flat the thing's done, both sides.
The only downside is that the skins stick to the pan and strips the fish.
Tastes just like those sour sauce fish you order at restaurants, juz w/o the pickles.
I don't care next time I'm making curry from scratch.
Tuesday, October 6, 2009
Uncle fried up some catfish. I gotta say curry powder is the best thing to marinade fish with, esp if ya gonna deep fry it. It's so great i dunno how to describe it. Make sure the fish is fresh though. That one was still alive 30 minutes before it swam it's way into my stomach.
Trials just over. Been wondering about what field to go to post-F6. I dun really want to deal with the sciences anymore. I dun wanna bother understanding energy levels beyond the d-orbitals, I dun wanna learn more about electrical circuits, I dun wanna calculate the volume of an elephant and prove some mind-twisting identities.
Learning about gravitation is satisfying, learning about bonds and elements is fun, learning to solve 3 way simultaneous equations with matrices (juz used one in physics, my calculator rocks) is fun.
Beyond that, uhh it's just plain torture. I planned to write a post about why nobody should deserve the mental torture of studying for STPM. Just a sneak preview: lum-sum examination style is no good.
So, any recommendations for fields of study for someone like me who's done with sciences but has done sciences?
I knew it the moment I watched How To Alienate People and Lose Friends.
I knew it the moment the first shot of her showed in Transformers 2.
I just freakin knew it.
Megan Fox is a snoobish A-list wannabe.
yes she's freakin shot, but if she only she's a decent girls with a decent attitude with some common sense and professionalism, it would have been perfect.
Guess she's a long shot from perfect. And yes I do believe that the following quote holds truth. That mention about her complaining about the working environment is good enough.
This is an open letter to all Michael Bay fans. We are three crew members that have worked with Michael for the past ten years. Last week we read the terrible article with inflammatory, truly trashing quotes by the Ms. Fox about Michael Bay. This letter is to set a few things straight.
Yes, Megan has great eyes, a tight stomach we spray with glycerin, and an awful silly Marilyn Monroe tattoo plastered on her arm that we cover up to keep the moms happy.
Michael found this shy, inexperienced girl, plucked her out of total obscurity thus giving her the biggest shot of any young actresses' life. He told everyone around to just trust him on his choice. He granted her the starring role in Transformers, a franchise that forever changed her life; she became one of the most googled and oogled women on earth. She was famous! She was the next Angelina Jolie, hooray! Wait a minute, two of us worked with Angelina - second thought - she's no Angelina. You see, Angelia is a professional.
We know this quite intimately because we've had the tedious experience of working with the dumb-as-a-rock Megan Fox on both Transformers movies. We've spent a total of 12 months on set making these two movies.
We are in different departments; we can't give our names because sadly doing so in Hollywood could lead to being banished from future Paramount work. One of us touches Megan's panties, the other has the often *$+$*$ job of pulling Ms. Sourpants out of her trailer, while another is near the Panaflex camera that helps to memorialize the valley girl on film.
Megan has the press fooled. When we read those magazines we wish we worked with that woman. Megan knows how to work her smile for the press. Those writers should try being on set for two movies, sadly she never smiles. The cast, crew and director make Transformers a really fun and energetic set. We've traveled around the world together, so we have never understood why Megan was always such the grump of the set?
When facing the press, Megan is the queen of talking trailer trash and posing like a porn star. And yes we've had the unbearable time of watching her try to act on set, and yes, it's very cringe-able. So maybe, being a porn star in the future might be a good career option. But make-up beware, she has a paragraph tattooed to her backside (probably due her rotten childhood) - easily another 45 minutes in the chair!
So when the three of us caught wind of Ms Fox, pontificating yet again in some publication (like she actually has something interesting to say) blabbing her trash mouth about a director whom we three have grown to really like. She compared working with Michael, to "working with Hitler". We actually don't think she knows who Hitler is by the way. But we wondered how she doesn't realize what a disgusting, fully uneducated comment this was? Well, here let's get some facts straight.
Say what you want about Michael - yes at times he can be hard, but he's also fun, and he challenges everyone for a reason - he simply wants people to bring their 'A' game. He comes very prepared, knows exactly what he wants, involves the crew and expects everyone to follow through with his or her best, and that includes the actors. He's one of the hardest working directors out there.
He gets the best from his crews, many of whom have worked with him for 15 years. And yes, he's loyal, one of the few directors we've encountered who lowered his fee by millions to keep Transformers in the United States and California, so he could work with his own crew.
Megan says that Transformers was an unsafe set? Come on Megan, we know it is a bit more strenuous then the playground at the trailer park, but you don't insult one of the very best stunt and physical effects teams in the business! Not one person got hurt!
And who is the real Megan Fox? She is very different than the academy nominee and winning actors we've all worked around. She's as about ungracious a person as you can ever fathom. She shows little interest in the crew members around her. We work to make her look good in every way, but she's absolutely never appreciative of anyone's hard work. Never a thank you. All the crewmembers have stopped saying hi to Ms. Princess because she never says hello back. It gets tiring. Many think she just really hates the process of being an actress.
Megan has been late to the sets many times. She goes through the motions that make her exude this sense of misery. We've heard the A.D's piped over the radio that Megan won't walk from her trailer until John Turturro walks first! John's done seventy-five movies and she's made two!
Never expect Megan to attend any of the 15 or so crew parties like all the other actors have. And then there's the classless night she blew off The Royal Prince of Jordan who made a special dinner for all the actors. She doesn't know that one of the grips' daughters wanted to visit their daddy's work to meet Megan, but he wouldn't let them come because he told them "she is not nice."
The press certainly doesn't know her most famous line. On our first day in Egypt, the Egyptian government wouldn't let us shoot because of a permit problem as the actors got ready in make up at the Four Seasons Hotel. Michael tried to make the best of it; he wanted to take the cast and crew on a private tour of the famous Giza pyramids. God hold us witness, Megan said, "I can't believe Michael is $!!$%#* forcing us to go to the $!!$%#* pyramids!" I guess this is the "Hitler guy" she is referring to.
So this is the Megan Fox you don't get to see. Maybe she will learn, but we figure if she can sling insults, then she can take them too. Megan really is a thankless, classless, graceless, and shall we say unfriendly $%$##. It's sad how fame can twist people, and even sadder that young girls look up to her. If only they knew who they're really looking up to.
But 'fame' is fleeting. We, being behind the scenes, seen em' come and go. Hopefully Michael will have Megatron squish her character in the first ten minutes of Transformers 3. We can tell you that will make the crew happy!

Elisha Cuthbert as the next Mikaela, anyone?

That's right folks. Transformers 3 now expected to arrive by July 1st 2011. And remember you heard it first on this very blog.
Wan chilli sauce ah?
No actually Micheal Bay blogged about it.
Let's see how much worse they can make of Megan Fox. Transformers 1 was the dime, and that's it. T2 was overdone. Unless Mikaela grows some brain and contributes some maturity/intelligence to the movie, heck this goes straight to my DL list.
