extreme tiredness and aching feet

what a cheerful blog post title.

sore feet from standing in half-inch heels. all that serebeh-ness in kurung and selendang for a whole day.

basically, I'm not going to post what the activties were exactly, but a few keypoints on what Khazanah looks for in it's scholar is basically leadership in general.

For the first task, they're looking at resilience: encompassing interpersonal skills, self-confidence and work smart.

The second task, they're looking at strategic thinking: encompassing forward-thinking and breakthrough thinking

The third task: simply integrity

well, to note, Khazanah was pretty generous since they supplied us with buffet lunch at PNB Darby Park, and they were transparent enough about the criterias they look for.

oh, one of the questions that got my attention was:

did you apply for biomedical engineering as a scapegoat because Khazanah doesn't offer medicine? i bet you applied medicine for other scholarships.

my answer was:

no way.

then, I elaborated why. too lazy to go into the details. still tired.

conclusion: Khazanah is a lot tougher than Sime Darby.

Betrayed by the worst atrociously shameful mark of femininity, the shy, embarrassed, immature, self-conscious, awkward, school girl blush in the presence of a drop dead attractive member of the opposite sex. *facepalm* I'm gonna be fricking 21 years old, hormones, please stabilize.

If you have not read this book, get you hands on it quick!
Yes, I'm serious, it is that good.

simply because it is unforgivingly, brutally honest.
What I love of this book is basically the fact that not a single word has gone to waste. Every single description is relevant, and makes for a pinpoint analogy of each scenario in the book. When you traverse each sentence, you already have an idea what the author is trying to portray in the way he describes what the characters do, wear, walk, talk. the simple gestures represent the very soul of the culture so imminently depicted in this book.
And the main character, Balram, seems so real that you could almost believe that he actually runs around in the streets, er, slums of India. The complexity of emotions and the inner turmoil he felt as he expresses his views on the issues.
The author's ideas of a new-age caste of small-bellied and big-bellied people and the Rooster Coop has been compellingly displayed along the storyline, and y…


Firstly, I should make my biases clear, but I'm pretty sure it's obvious. I've seen the Sam Raimi trilogy and of course, I will be comparing it to the reboot. After all, the reboot came a little bit too soon after the trilogy. Most of what follows will probably just be my personal preferences and gripes. Warning, spoilers abound.

1. Peter Parker

I liked the doe-eyed Tobey Maguire more as the day-to-day Peter Parker. He's the nerdy, unsure of himself, normal guy. Andrew Garfield's cheeky boyish look doesn't make me buy the Peter Parker-ness. Andrew Garfield looks like he belongs to some teen series.

2. Mary Jane versus Gwen Stacy
I hated Kirsten Dunst's Mary Jane. She's completely helpless like the traditional damsel in distress and sometimes her whining about her relationship with Peter Parker, seems, idk, petty, and sometimes she seems to not understand his predicament of being Spider-man and not being able to be there for her all the time.
