One Night Only.

Gosh.. George Craig is cute! I was practically gawking at him everytime 'Say You Don't Want It' plays on MTV, LOL.

I went looking for the song right away.. and later bummed when the quality FAIL, grr =='
Well I extracted the mp3 audio straight from YouTube so what the hell should I expect, right?

So I looked for it again and yes, I found it. Don't ask me where I've found it - I just went to Google, typed 'say you don't want it mp3' and hit Enter. Opened up to 10+ carefully picked links just to get a better chance of picking one with a good Q [that's quality].

Say, you don't want it?

I read somewhere that if I registered in their mailing list, I'll get a free mp3, 'All I Wanted'. Charming. So I did that, and got the mp3, and when I listened to it, I was like, "This is better than their earlier material, surely. This is AWESOME!"

Go get it yourself. You fans won't regret it.

Oh, and word is that he's dating that chick in the video.
Yea, me too. I was shocked. << Deadpan statement. Sorry, I'm a blurcase by nature :)

Well, they met on a shooting set for Burberry shoot.

Now that explains the cute chemistry in the vid, don't you think? Link

And then I stopped.

Yesterday, I read The Sun. There's this article talking about transfers post-WC '10. Interesting. So I scanned thru it.

Among them are Torres, Fabregas, this blondie spiky-haired Germany guy whose name I can pronounce but can't spell, and J. Cole.

Then I read about Fabregas. Apparently Barcelona's interested in him. That's when I read, '.. and Fabregas did look reluctant to be in Barca colours, for obvious reasons.'

Being a total footie noob I am, I was about to say, "Papa, why is it that.." when I came back to my senses.. and realised he's no longer here.

It dawned to me that he's probably the only guy who could answer my never-ending curiousity about the players.. and also the only one who could spontaneously [and unexpectedly, which I love] go, "You see Howard? The goalkeeper. There. He's from the US." "Oh, dear.. Evra's panicking. Everytime he becomes the captain, he'll panic." "Look at Gordon, the Sunderland keeper. Everytime he kicks the ball, he'd always tilt his head to a side! See? Ha ha ha!"

Hey, no pun intended. I'm talking memories here, not footie.

When I missed the WC '10 Finals, I felt a pang of disappointment. Coz I've missed so much.. and I missed my Dad.

PLKN (Ku Berharap)

Call me lame for posting this when it's already over for a month plus now.. but I really miss seeing, talking, and laughing with them so much I just gotta take it outta my chest.

I've got to admit this - I was excited to get into camp. Call me nuts, crazy, retarded even but military-ish life everyday from 6.30 am to 10 pm is nothing... when you're there with your buds. Fine, go on *groan* all you want, but admit it - we all had a blast. Or to some, you WILL.

That's why I was freakin' excited to get into camp - coz I know I'll meet a whole new bunch of people. Despite 3 months dealing with the heat (I could have cussed a lot more if it weren't for the genes - thanx Dad), weird JLs whose minds you just can't comprehend, much less understand, and occasionally sucky food (there, I said it), PLKN is the best thing that has ever happened to me. It's like I've been reborn.

Scratch that last sentence. it's pure bliss with friends.. but for the entire period we felt like we're the target of a mass murder, but they failed, so they tried it again and again for 3 months. when they finally go, 'oh these wankers just don't die!' they make us pack our stuffs and get out.. and then bring in another bunch of teenagers and try to kill them again.. to see if it works this time. So we suffer with our friends. That's why it's so unforgettable. Because we all hate the same things. Hahah. Ok, anyways..

I've made friends, sure. Some still stick with me to this day thanx to mobile phones and MukaBuku.

Then, I've come to understand a culture bit by bit. Why that is that, this is this and the like.

And the things we do - handling Colt M16, flying fox (I went 'woohoo!' up there, wonder if anyone ever heard that), kayak, gosh.. they were awesome.

Yes, it is still the best thing that's ever happened to me.

We have
- slept in the same dorm.
- ate nearly 6 times a day at the same table.
- taking sick, crazy photos every weekend or even activities.
- met buds on weekdays in PK and KN classes and go 'are you sleepy? me too, man' to the person next to you.

All these for 3 straight months. I smiled wide ear to ear and laugh till I make no sound hundreds of times in there. It's a whole new level of bonding.

To you guys who went pale-faced when you received The Letter To PLKN, here's one simple rule of thumb that'll keep you 'alive', so to speak -

Change That Mindset.

Honest. Just think about it, when you dread it, you'll ruin all the fun. Just enjoy everything. Take part into as many things as you can. When you enjoy everything, you'll weep when the 3 months is over coz you had too much fun.. but later laugh back at the memories you had back there. You won't leave that place empty-handed. Trust me, I was there. ;)
Just follow all the rules, and when in doubt, ask. And then when they're in doubt when you ask them when you're in doubt, by all means, just cuss for your own sanity. That's how I survived the camp. :p

Oh, the title? Heheh, the song Suara (Ku Berharap) by Hijau Daun was a hit at my camp. People sing it EVERYWHERE. Along with Wonder Girls' Nobody, Nobody.. and some guy got famous coz he's danced to that tune, LOL XD

In PLKN, make yourself some saccharine sweet memories. Then you'll begin to enjoy every moment of it.
