To laugh is to risk appearing the fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out for another is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas,your dreams,before a crowd is to risk their loss.
To Love is to risk not being loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk despair.
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing and is nothing.
They may avoid suffering and sorrow but they cannot learn, feel,change,grow,love or live.
Only a person who risks is free.
Life is too short. Risk it. Carpe diem. Cliche-ish I know, but they are bound to have at least some basis of truth.

For a week now, these buzzing bloodsuckers have been feeding on me. They've bitten my eyebrow area, my ears, side of face, my arms, my legs and the bottom of my feet (the last being the most irritatingly itchy). DO I LOOK LIKE A BUFFET TABLE HUH??!!??
And yes, they just gotten The Spray. Bwahahaha, am a certified Mass Mozzie Murderer(MMM)!!!
Ought to get together with my cousins... mozzie hunting are their hobby XD.
In abt 3 weeks, I'll be reverting back to my Oxygen-Wasting phase! But for now, there are 3 final projects left to complete and more hair to pull out. Do wish me luck, I need truckloads of 'em!

Ah, the end is here [for Malaysian idol that is,lol]. to be anal retentive specific, the results will be announced in abt 24 hours, after all these weeks! One thing abt these long running competitions, you start to identify or at least, feel 'close' to the contestants. After Nikki dropped out, started to feel slightly sad. With American Idol, it wasn't so much, although had felt absolutely furious at the exit of the realllly good singers and those who weren't so good remained, but MI is closer to home =P.
Now. Is it just me, getting this 'BAMMM!' dejavu feeling for the finals? Physically, Jac is like Fantasia and Dina is like Degarmo. Even the voice... that husky, grainy voice of Fantasia/Jac and the powerful clear singing of Degarmo/Dina.
Dina sang the first two songs absolutely fabfab, but blew it with her last song.
Jac did an absolutely great finish, and like LC says, the final song 'Gemilang' was a bit like 'I Believe' by Fantasia Barrino. All judges's opinions keep pointing to Jac, that she'll be the Malaysian Idol.
Even as I type this, I keep messing up the MI and AI finalist names. THIS is how simliar it is.
Dina looks and sounds sad at the duet... I don't blame her. I mean, after all this months! i think she has a feeling that her friend will win, not her. I feel kind of sorry for her... if Jac wasn't in, she would be the 1stwinner. There's a bit of unfairness here, because Jac is semi professional and Dina got off on an even footing with the rest of the contestants. And she improved a LOT. However, I'm voting for Jac. Cuz she can do some butt kickin' in World Idol and can prolly rival Fantasia... As for Dina? If she has an album out, I'll definitely go get it. mind you, not pirated! =P
Will the outcome be similiar as AI? The wait (and voting) begins. Have more stuff to blog abt, but currently,uh, have some stuff to settle. Streamyx is acting all sucky again for the past two days. The connection is all broken up like fallen glass.
near the end of Nov this year, I'll be getting a 2-3 months break...oh God,am soooo gonna die of boredom. But the initial rest would be good. and will complete my website. GAH!
