Byousoku 5cm

When Japanese anime first appeared, I was like "Yeah, so it's just another cartoon.. What's the big deal about it?? Why is everyone so addicted to it?!"

Some told me that the arts were very nice, very human-like. Some just like them for the story line. For me, I was rather skeptical towards all these until.... I've seen this show.

The graphics were perfect. The scenes were superbly beautiful. The details to each scene, to each animation... it makes me feel as if I'm in the movie itself... The falling of sakura flowers, the drops of snow, the movement of the train, the sunset, the walk along the countryside with birds chirping.. and the list goes on.

However, the movie is the heart-throbbing and sad love story kind of genre. The entire movie consists of 3 chapters.

Episode 1: Ōkashō

Ōkashō (Cherry Blossom Extract): Upon graduating from elementary school, Takaki Tōno and his close friend Akari Shinohara drifted apart. Akari moved to Tochigi Prefecture due to her parents' jobs, while Takaki attended a junior high in Tokyo. The two kept in contact by writing letters, but despite the special feelings that existed between them, the only thing that persisted was time. When Takaki became aware that his family would move to Kagoshima, he decided to go see Akari since they would be too far apart to visit each other after he moved. However, when the day came, a severe snowstorm delayed Takaki's trip, and it would be hours before he reached Iwafune, where they promised to meet.

Episode 2: Cosmonaut

Takaki is now in the third year of senior high in Tanegashima, where the Tanegashima Space Center is located. Kanae Sumita, a classmate of Takaki, has special feelings for Takaki, but she does not have the courage to express her love to him. She later observes that Takaki is always staring off into the distance, as if searching for something far far away. Even though she loves Takaki, Kanae understands that he is searching for things far greater than anything she can offer.

Episode 3: Byōsoku 5 Centimeter

It is now 2008, and all three characters have gone their separate ways. Takaki is now a computer programmer in Tokyo, and Akari is preparing to get married. One day, Takaki goes out and sees the face of a familiar-looking woman at a railroad-crossing. Puzzled by the encounter, he tries to look back, but a train comes and cuts off his view.

There is another REVIEW for the first part of this anime.

Anyhow, the soundtracks in this anime are nice. It's really recommended for those who love beauty of art.

A girl that caught my attention....

The first time I look at her, she was turning counter clockwise... But apparently, she can turn clockwise as well!! So, i concentrated hard.. to make her turn clockwise.. It was so hard to do that, when i was on the verge of giving up.. she turned clockwise for me.. dang... (think the trick is to focus else where)

Anyway, some claims that this is a right brain or a left brain test. If you see her turn counter clockwise, you're a left brain. Otherwise, you're a right brain!

So, what are you?

My self-made meal

When people cook their own meals, it may be pasta (spaghetti), rice with dishes and noodles.
Well, I'm more of a lazy person and all i do is make my own sandwhich toast!

My 'kitchen'

I shall call it the Ham Sandwich Toast with cheese, ketchup and mayo (additional cheese topping may be included)

Sometimes, I'll have yoghurt drink and some fruits to go along with it. Oh, btw, the cheese topping would be adding a slice of cheese at the top (in addition to the cheese inside it). lolz

This is so fattening and unhealthy!

Oh No the blog is dead!

*beep beep beep*

*loooooonnnnngggggg beeeep*

uh oh...looks like this blog died..needs to be revived!!

*frantically digs for defibrillators*

*electrocutes the blog*



*tiny beep heard*

It's ALIVE!!!!!!!!!

Hahah..lame..i know...sorry...lack of something subtantial to say..I haven't even been keeping my own blog alive..

Some updates about myself:

1) Currently in my research year. Doing research in the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital in Melbourne in the field of glaucoma. Nopes I'm not saving people's lives...not yet anyways >_<

* Sunshine --> Check

* Summer dress --> Check

* Sunnies --> Check

now the problem is HUNKS. How can a beach day be a nice beach day if we don't throw in some hunks here and there?? It's a Friday, and all civic-minded hunks would be either at work or at uni. Maybe I should change the date to the weekend instead..

3) I've grown FATTER! Yes siree! To 45 kg! I can officially donate blood!! Wooottt!!!!!

4) I've straightened my hair again.. and I don't know which one looks better, but straight hair is certainly easier to manage! Curly hair is kinda bothersome, but I've gotten used to it for the past 2 years.. Wait till the next time the blogging bug bites me and I'll post up a voting thing so u all can vote whether I should keep it straight or curlie.

5) I mis-remembered Gabbie's birthday one month earlier!!!!! *blush* At least I didn't forget!!!!!

6) I go slightly nuts in spring. Just slightly, mind you!

Now if you'll excuse me, I've gotta plant my mp3 in the pot so it'll grow mp3 babies since it's spring.

7) I am in dire need of entertainment as you can see from my revival of this dodgy blog.. someone entertain me, please???

Cheers everyone! [or should i say anyone who reads this blog >_<]
