"I can't. I still have works to do."
"OK, then. Bye"
Thus, I'm now staying alone in my room. 2 room mates went back to their hometown, 2 housemates went to classes, while the other 2 joined a camp. Finally, I'm ALL alone!!! Yeah!!! I prefer to stay alone, to tell you the truth. Sometimes, I just feel that me myself just need to be left alone, to be with, myself, in my own world. I don't want my world to mix up with others. I just need to be in my world. Sometimes when my room mates were there, I just feel like asking them to get out of the room. For me, alone is better. I don't need a companion. I just need myself. Sometimes I wish I own the whole room. But I'm not affordable to do so. Hence, I just wish my room mates will go back to their hometown as frequent as they can, so I can 'own' the room for some time! Now, I'll just enjoy myself in my world!

Angered over the loss of her spurned lover and his slight of her character, Merteuil plots to deface Cecile’s virtuousness by having her friend Valmont seduce the young, naïve Cecile. Valmont declines Merteuil’s request relating that he is currently trying to allure Madame de Tourvel, a married guest of his aunt that is staying in the country while her husband is abroad, into bed with him. Merteuil chides Valmont in his conquest and the two place wagers on his success or failure. If Valmont succeeds in bedding the innocent Tourvel, he will be able to bed Merteuil, a feat that she constantly rebuffs. However, if he fails, Merteuil demands that he must join a monastery for losing.
Merteuil convinces her cousin to allow Cecile to join her in the countryside to help Cecile get over the loss of her music teacher, when, in fact, she helps Cecile write secret love letters to Danceny. The two of them join Valmont at his aunt’s residence where he playfully flirts with Cecile. Valmont offers to help Cecile write a letter on Merteuil’s advisement and Valmont takes full advantage of his opportunity to exact revenge on Volange. When Cecile confides to Merteuil what she has done, Merteuil encourages her young cousin to use Valmont as training for when Cecile finally gets her chance with Danceny.

Day 2-Movie Red Cliff 2
Day 3-The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Finally, this movie is released. And I rush to the nearest cinema to watch it. The crowd is less, as it's the earliest time slot. I read before the movie's plot, it's an emotional film. But for God's sake, I don't know it's sooo touching that I cried so much throughout the whole movie! Read the storyline alone I've already felt touching. Now sitting in front of the wide screen and watch the casts play their role, it gives more feeling! I don't know that it will make me cry so much! I thought I cried so much while watching 'Changeling', but now I cried even more while watching this film. I don't have to say much more about this movie. My tears already tell you guys the story. Those people who have 'feeling', will have the same feeling like me (though I know you won't cry so much, as I'm the one who's easy to cry), while those who don't have 'feeling', you can challenge yourself and see whether it's 'high standard' enough to make you feel something. To all who are going to watch it in the cinema, please prepare yourself and the one beside you some tissues!

Chaos in Michael Phelps' Life
7 Feb 2009
My housemates had been planning to have our reunion dinner (for Chinese New Year celebration) on 16th January 2009, Saturday. So, KP and I plan to do the birthday surprises on that particular day. Wendy and Kalao shouldn't know this planning. At first, we were still not sure whether the reunion dinner should be held at a nearby restaurant, with those friends living below us (4th floor's friend), or just having it at our house . So, plan A, which is the dinner at the restaurant, will go like this: STK would bring in the birthday cake when we are half way having our dinner. How should STK reach the restaurant as he's not sure where is the place? Solution: 1 of my housemate,JC will suddenly 'received' an very important phone call, asking to meet her which is actually to bring in STK. As Kalao is the only one who drives among my housemates, JC should ask the other friend who also drive, from 4th floor, to fetch her 'to meet someone'. Then, STK will go to the restaurant with them. While plan B, which is having the dinner at our house, will be more simple and easy. STK will just popped out with the cake at the frontdoor halfway through the dinner when JC go downstairs 'to pick up something'.
Planning was sure easy, but the important things is whether STK can make it on that particular time. As I'm the only one who have STK's number (Wendy gave him mine number in case he can't find Wendy, and he happened to call me to find Wendy once, so I got his number), I did the asking. Thank God he can make it on that particular day. My plan go easier as the final decision to have the dinner will be at our house. Thus, we'll go on with Plan B! STK is not only the present for Wendy, as we also prepared a real present for her. We bought her a Tweety Bird's bedsheet, as she don't have her own bedsheet. All these while she used her sister-in-law's. Tweety Bird's design as some said she looks like Tweety Bird (the eyes). We also bought bus ticket for STK (coz we asked him to come here at the first place), so that it will be easy for him to take bus back to KL the next day. As for Kalao, we were not sure what to give him, as he's single and didnt lack of anything. But his present was a T-shirt. We also booked birthday cakes for them, 1 for Wendy and 1 for Kalao. We curi-curi done the shopping and cakes, as we do not want either of them know. Thus, everything was ready. We just have to wait for that day to arrive.
During these 12 days, we had to keep it secret from them whenever we want to discuss these things. When that particular day arrived, the 2 important people were busy with their stuffs, so they were not at home. This make our plan more easier. We went to take the cakes and kept it at our friend's place (at 4th floor). STK should arrive at my house around 6pm after he done his shopping (present for Wendy) and he should wait at McDonald's until we call him. He reached here earlier than expected, but luckily only KP and me were at home. Kalao and other housemates went to do last minute shopping. So, STK came, took a bath and still have time to do some revision before other housemates called to say that 'Kalao and us are coming back now', which means STK need to go and hide now.
While we were preparing the food, Wendy was still playing volleyball, as she took part in the Sukad (Sukan antara Desasiswa). When everybody is at home and the food is ready, I asked STK to meet JC and SJ at the 4th floor to get the cake. When we were waiting JC to reach, all of us already waiting at the table. JC came in a while, then when she saw SJ came in, she switched off the light. And then we sang the birthday song. Wendy was suprised to see that her man bring in the cake! Kalao was a bit slow to get it, as he thought both the cakes were for Wendy! I can see that Wendy's face was full of surprises and happinees. She was very happy. So was Kalao. All things were 'exposed' when we had our dinner. Both of them felt real dumb as they really didnt notice all the things we've planned!
It was a success, but most importantly, I had to say a lot of thanks to STK. Without him, it won't be soo success! :)
Detective Ybarra is called to a ranch at Wineville, Riverside County to arrange the deportation of 15-year-old Sanford Clark to Canada. The boy's uncle, Gordon Northcott, has fled after being unwittingly alerted by Ybarra to his visit. Clark tells Ybarra that Northcott forced him to assist in kidnapping and murdering approximately twenty children and identifies Walter as one of them. Jones tells Briegleb that Christine is in protective custody following a mental breakdown. Jones orders Clark deported, but Ybarra makes Clark reveal the murder site. Briegleb secures Christine's release by showing Steele a newspaper that details the Wineville killings and names Walter as a possible victim. "Walter" reveals his motive was to secure transportation to Los Angeles to see his favorite actor, Tom Mix, and says the police told him to lie about being Christine's son. Northcott is captured in Vancouver, Canada. Christine has an attorney secure a court order to release the women unfairly imprisoned by police.
On the day of the city council's hearing into the case, Christine and Briegleb arrive at Los Angeles City Hall, where they encounter thousands of protestors who are demanding answers from the city. The hearing is intercut with scenes from Northcott's trial. The council concludes that Jones and Davis should be removed from duty, and extrajudicial internments by police must be reviewed. Northcott is found guilty of murder and sentenced to death by hanging. Two years later, Christine has not given up her search for Walter. She is told Northcott is willing to admit killing Walter on condition that Christine meets him before his execution. Northcott refuses to tell her whether or not he killed her son, and he is executed the next day. In 1935, David Clay—one of the boys assumed to have been killed—is found alive. He reveals that one of the boys with whom he was imprisoned was Walter. David, Walter and another boy escaped, but were separated. David does not know whether Walter was recaptured, giving Christine hope he is alive.
Changeling is based on the true story of the kidnapping and supposed return of Christine Collins' nine-year-old son, Walter. The aftermath of his disappearance exposed corruption in the Los Angeles Police Department and the city's political hierarchy, leading to the dismissal of senior civic leaders. Walter went missing on March 10, 1928, after having been given money by his mother to go to the cinema. His disappearance received nationwide attention, and the Los Angeles Police Department followed up on hundreds of leads without success. The department faced increasing public pressure to solve the case, until five months after Walter's disappearance, when a boy claiming to be Walter was found in DeKalb, Illinois. Collins paid for the boy to be brought to Los Angeles, where a public reunion was organized by police. Collins' claims that the boy was not Walter were met by police Captain J.J Jones' urging her to "try [the boy] out for a couple of weeks".

In 1926, 14-year-old Sanford Clark was taken from his home in Saskatchewan, Canada by his uncle, Gordon Stewart Northcott. Clark was taken to Northcott's ranch in Wineville, Riverside County, where he was beaten and sexually abused by Northcott. A family member informed police of the situation, and in September 1928, police found Clark at the ranch and took him into custody. Clark claimed that Northcott had kidnapped, molested and killed several young boys with the help of Northcott's mother—Sarah Louise Northcott—and the forced participation of Clark himself. The police found no complete bodies at the site—Clark said the bodies were dumped in the desert—but discovered body parts, the personal effects of several missing children, and blood-stained axes.
