Is it true that when a girl wants to change something in her life, she starts with her hair? To me it is! Some of my friends celebrate a semestral break vacation with a new hair cut. Others want a new hair do after a break-up. Whatever it is, we girls feel that our hair is a big deal and going to a Salon is a therapy for all of us. We feel more confident if we look good and the hair contributes a lot to how we look. That’s why, going to a salon I trust is very important!
My usual trip to a hair salon is traumatizing. I am not a hair expert myself so I wouldn’t know which styles are best for my face. It’s always a dilemma expecting to see a beautiful change then all of a sudden, the hair stylist screws up. That’s why I am very keen in choosing the right parlor for me.
Oh well, I have a new discovery folks!
Vince and I went to Vivere Salon to get our haircut together Their tagline is “We just don’t cut, we DESIGN your hair!” True enough girls, I went inside not knowing what to do with my hair. All I know is that I have my own hair problems.
My problem with my hair is obvious.
(1) Uneven color!!! YIKES!!! Look at that ugliness.
(2) My hair looks boring! It needs a new hair style!
Luster, shine, split ends and hair fall weren’t my problem though, Pantene takes care of that
Time to go inside Vivere now
The head stylist examined my hair. I just told him to surprise me.
I just wanted to be more beautiful and less boring.
And so he did say that he needed to re-color my hair (obviously) with some treatment and a stylish layered do for my naturally thin hair to give it a more bouncy feel (even without blow dry).
The dying part
The washing part… They always massage my scalp everytime they rinse my hair.
Oh… and they also massaged my back… It was the best back massage ever.. I almost slept!
A guy massaged me. A real man… I’m starting to think I’d get a male masseuse on my next spa time lol.
The stylist also noticed my wild eyebrows so he did some threading to make it more neat
This part is almost done, it’s just time to cut the hair!
Vince also had his hair done
That face means he likes his hair ^_^
TA-DA!!! Hair cut done!!!
Look at the head stylist Mr. Leo! He looks intense man… He’s definitely determined to make me more purrty!
I always chat with the stylists and I found out he did lots of make-overs for some magazine or a TV show (I forgot)
He’s at the Vivere Salon at Robinson’s Place Ermita so if you don’t have a clue what to do with your hair, let him handle it.
Ta-da!!! I forgot to ask what color because I was just too excited! I was so happy!!!
Look at the shine and the color! At this point, my hair is still half wet!
Many girls love their hair really straight, but me, I just love natural waves Look at that happy monki
and of course, posing inside malls is no biggie… I’m a blogger, it’s my right!
Vince and I were so happy we had to take a family picture ^_^
I would like to give all my thanks to Bea Chua who hooked us up with wonderful Vivere Salon It was a great beauty discovery for me! Also thanking our stylists Leo Antifino and Peng Guevarra for our make-over!
Do check out Vivere Salon at the different locations below!
sssThe pictures describe themselves So this post is all about my photo coverage of the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix Qualifying. Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel were both battling for the Pole Position. Vettel had the fastest lap on the practice sessions but Fernando Alonso was very determined to get that pole. Vettel has always been doing a good job in the Signapore circuit. But, of course, it is not good enough.

This is the view outside our window at Hotel Re!
Glass elevator of Hotel Re! with a pink shadow of Marilyn Monro
Re! for Retro!
Another nice church I saw while roaming around the city
Ilumo mall – The lanterns lit up at night
Bugis Street where you can find lots of great fashion buys, lots of durian and drinks and pasalubong to take home. They also have a s3x shop inside too lol
Albert Centre – Hawker Center with plenty choices of local dishes (to blog about this separately)
I can’t help but notice great architectural structures in Singapore. The buildings are eye-catching. This is the La Salle building. I think it’s a new mall, not sure though.
My favorite place to eat Duck Rice and Char Siew Rice (Roasted Pork / Asado Rice). This is Leang Seah street corner Northbridge Road.
Yu Kee Duck Rice (the red resto on the left side of the picture) is where you should go
Marina Bay Sands is finally up! They also have that cracked egg thingy on the side which bursts with inviting disco lights that reach the sky at night.
A close up view of the egg thingy. It still looks unfinished.
Sexy gal, eager to watch the cars zoom in front of her!
This picture is a little bit blurry but people here can do crazy fun stuff
Like I said, you don’t have to be an F1 fan to watch it. It is just one of the sexiest experience in my life ever!
Fullerton Hotel always has nice cars parked outside it.
Rolls Royce anyone?
They said that real travel photographers don’t only take landscape photos and stuff, but they also take photos of the locals and other people.
So, I’m trying to be a real one lol. Hence, I also have a series of photos of spectators like I did before here.
I saw this posh pretty little girl and I can’t help but take my camera and capture her
A young F1 fan
3 Bros… young F1 fans
Amazed by the Marina Bay Sands
This was taken on Saturday’s Qualifying. When it’s Sunday race day, this grandstand is Jammed!
I just realized, you can watch F1 from a boat or a yacht! Do they sell tickets from this angle? lol
Lucky one, his job is to shoot F1 cars live all over the world!
Good thing I brought my 70-300 zoom lens! I was so far from him. The major change they had for this year was to issue a limited number of wristbands that will give you access to the Fan Zone area.
It’s like a VIP section. It’s free but you have to line up for the access. T_T
Another angle of Daughtry
Renault F1 car Singapore Grand Prix 2010
Force India Singapore GP 2010
Another Renault car. It’s not hard to take photos of the Renault car, it’s so photogenic. It reflects more light than any other cars and my pictures with it are always clear.
Fernando Alonso of Ferrari zooming in front of me at the Signapore Grand Prix!
Fence-less photo of the Red Bull car. They are pretty strong this year! So far, they are leading the constructor’s championship title.
Felipe Massa who didn’t make it well with the Qualifying.
Also thanking Singapore Airlines, Singapore Tourism Board and Stratworks and all the Rev and Rave partners for making this all possible Thanking also Nick who drove us around Singapore (Through STB) thanks so much that was the most enjoyable Singapore stay ever!
Also thanking Singapore Airlines, Singapore Tourism Board and Stratworks and all the Rev and Rave partners for making this all possible I go to Singapore over and over again to cover the F1 race here and so far, I can say, this is the best year for me ever! I was surprised because I thought they will only give me walkabout tickets. But, when I dropped by Swissotel to pick up my tickets, I almost fainted seeing that my F1 passes are for the Stamford Grandstand! It costs around SGD 898 (Php 30,000). I love the fact that I would be able to take more photos of the F1 cars at a different angle I help the F1 fans and my readers choose the best seats for them and right now, I can comment about the Stamford Grandstand as well!
Here are the photos of Day one with quick descriptions if you click on the picture
*photographed using Nikon D40 and 70-300mm G Nikkor lens (yes, I photograph using a manual lens) 😀
My tickets! This time I’m seated on the Stamford Grandstand worth SGD 898 (PHP 30,000)
This is Vince’s Ticket c/o Globe Philippines worth SGD 598 (PHP 20,000)
Accidentally found a nice church somewhere.
And these are my Stamford Grandstand tickets ^_^
Thank you Singapore Tourism Board
Had a hard time untying and tying these back on Airport inspection lol
Thank You Singapore Airlines for the best flying experience ever!
No kidding! I memorize all the Pokemon in the Pokedex!
Why don’t you believe me!?!
Hey, wanna trade your Pikachu for my Snorlax?
Haha, seriously guys, I am a Pokemon trainer I know Vince always brags that he’s a Pokemon trainer on his speaking engagements but he’s just a poser… I am the real Pokemon trainer. I used to battle my Pokemon with my other officemate who also has one… wait… that doesn’t sound quite nice lol. Crap, I am getting influenced by Vince’s bad green jokes ~_~’
Anyway, moving on… There’s a new Pokemon Black and White that is out on the market now! They just started selling last September 22, 2010 and most stores in Japan selling it are sold out and millions of people preordered it. Pokemon is a big business man… If you haven’t played it yet, where on Earth have you been? Us Pokemon trainers have traveled from Veridian City to Lavender Town and many places more… Seriously guys, you’re stuck in the real world. Sometimes you need to escape the real world and train Pokemon like us
I am such an addict of Pokemon games and collecting them. Gotta catch them all right? haha!
Since this Pokemon Black & White craze is still… well, CRAZY!!! Some people created a trailer of Pokemon Apocalypse. Don’t ask me if this movie is legit or not. I don’t care, it’s just so entertaining. It’s a good production too Awesome… I would have just hoped they used child characters though and not adults like that.
This is another backlog But, I still want to blog about it anyway. I kinda stopped pursuing my passion for photography. I got discouraged because I don’t have enough moolah to buy enough gears for my photography. But, what the heck. Looking back, I realized I didn’t need those for now. The camera that I currently have, and my passion and eye for photography are all that I got and I belive it is quite enough to bring out lovely photos.
Here are some of my reef walking photos that got published on A&F Magazine (Action and Fitness Magazine, which they soon will rebrand as Total Fitness Magazine).
This is the first time that I had my photography published on a magazine
I have another photo that got published on CNBC Business magazine in London
The underwater photos were captured using my Panasonic Lumix TZ5. Sadly, this camera is dead now. It got drowned with salt water on one of my surfing trips
I loved that camera so much. Click here to know why.
If you want to buy this camera, I suggest you buy the newer versions TZ10 and latest TZ12. TZ12 is super new and I’m not sure if it is being sold here in the Philippines yet.
This is the cover of the September 2009 Anniversary Issue of Action and Fitness magazine.
It featured the sporty Nikki Gil and Billy Crawford.
They are re-launching Action and Fitness magazine this September 2010 on their supposedly 5th year anniversary and rebranding the magazine as “Total Fitness”.
This post is super delayed, but I have to blog about it anyway I was featured together with other 20 bloggers on UNO’s October 2009 issue. At that time, my project form London was already live, I just got back from Singapore (twice) to cover for F1 Singapore and attend the Nuffnang Blog Awards and I just submitted my resignation letter. Hence, it was a super hectic month. OMG, I almost forgot… It was the month of my birthday too!
Now, when I said I was featured in UNO, I got this reaction from friends and colleagues –>
Don’t worry, I wasn’t half naked or anything… at least not yet
The text reads:
Hannah’s claim to fame is to look sweet, while still being able to gorge on a meal of steamed pig’s brain and cow testicles. Men, take note.
Here’s another feature last July 2010. UNO Magazine had a special edition where they didn’t use much text on the magazine. We guided the readers on how to use the magazine well
Oh yeah… she still got it! I love this cover!
Anyway, you will see FlairCandy blog layout on one of its pages
okay, there’s a little bit of a typo error on my name 😛 but that’s fine 😉
I got so tired from jet-setting. My ears got really wonky and I got so sleepy. So, after eating some nice char siew fan (adobo rice), I just slept. I was awoken by the sound of my phone ringing.
It was Angeline Angeline and Satkuru picked me up with Ed at our Hotel and drove us around Gurney drive before meeting the other Penangites. It was 6pm then but there was still sunshine. 7pm, there was still sunshine.
Thanks to Chee Hsien, Willaz and Nasi Lemak restaurant for helping me identify the food. I got poor memory and I couldn’t remember the names of every food I ate
My first nai cha (milk tea) of the day. This was actually the milk tea I had for lunch. I love going around Asia because they have lots of milk tea everywhere. It always helps when I order something spicy.
my favorite Char Siew Fan (Adobo Rice)
7pm but there’s still sun. You can check the map. Geographically speaking Philippines is on the more Eastern Part but Malaysia follows the same time as us.
Sorry, it’s a little bit underexposed. I really didn’t edit much and besides, I don’t know how to Photoshop
I got tips from everyone I know, even Filipinos who have been to Penang, that street food in Penang is the best.
so street food it is…
not sure what this is but it might be pig kidney
It gives Khoay Zhiap its authentic salty but soury flavor I believe
Khoay Zhiap is only found n Penang and Lasker said, they only prepare it like weekends. Perfect timing for me
Khoay Zhiap is like our soup number 5
If you don’t know what soup number 5 is… it’s like sinigang or nilaga with cow testicles
I know I have eaten the weirdest things *faints*
This is the Khoay Zhiap soup not bad tasting. You can also opt to have it with rice and I like rice better yummy loh, but not for those with high uric acid.
Char Kway Teow (CKT) My favorite noodles of all time! Spicy is good. It’s not the best CKT if it’s not spicy
It’s flat noodles with egg and bean sprouts. They also put usually shrimp and other veggies.
mehhh… I forgot what this is called but according to the owner of Nasi Lemak’s resto here in the Philippines, this is Cheng Tng. It’s just water and ice with some fruit syrup. Lychee and beans and other sweet things are in it too
I gulped this and ate the fruits when the CKT got really spicy
You know, I’m very sensitive with spicy food.
Chicken Feet We call this “adidas” in the Philippines because it has like three lines lol
Curry Puff! It’s like empanada but it’s very big like the size of a Calzone. They have more meat and potatoes though and really spicy. But don’t worry, if I can take the spice, you will too YUMMY!
Food Place in Gurney Drive. A lot of people are here. Locals usually eat here more often than refined restaurants.
The cuttlefish – so big!
I got lychee ice which is made of real fresh lychee fruit and juice extracts. Yummy! I don’t know why we don’t have these here.
The green one is umbra (according to Willaz) it’s a fruit as well. I think we have the same fruit here in the Philippines but I forgot what.
This is Kuih Kosui, Kueh Nyonya. It’s like pandan rice thingy with coconut shreddings It’s like our own kuchinta but made into a ball
oh yes! they have their own version of Taho and this is the sweetest thing! They call it Taufu fah
This is the Fried Popiah, kinda like Lumpia
Kaya Kuih (not sure) but it’s sticky rice. One of the ingredients is supposedly a flower that causes the blueish color.
It’s really spicy but it’s definitely yummy! It’s a salad made of shredded cucumber, Chinese Turnip (hong kuak), potatpoes, bean curd (taukua), bean sprouts, prawn fritters (hae chi) and sliced boiled egg. The spicy sauce is made out of sweet potatoes. They know how to create and invent very good food ^_^ It’s also called Mamak Rojak or Cheh Hoo depending on which version of food this is (Indian or Chinese).
More milk tea and
another vrsion of CKT I ate near our hotel… yummy! I’m telling you, I’m craving for one right now gaah!
Chili bits you’re supposed to put on CKT if you want it to be spicier lol
oh yaye! What’s this burger doing in this blog post? oh well, you gotta McD everywhere once in a while
We arrived at Penang at around 7 am and we haven’t had any nice decent sleep. We were supposed to walk around Georgetown and take pictures. But we were really tired and sleepy so we just took these pictures while riding the bus hoping to walk around the city in the afternoon. But we slept whole afternoon lol so we never got to have another walk. I know I haven’t captured everything in photos but Georgetown is really lovely and very rich in culture. Georgetown Penang looks like our Vigan’s Calle Crisologo where old houses are preserved. The only difference is Georgetown’s architecture looks more English or British and our Calle Crisologo looks more Spanish. They also had cobbled roads like the one in Calle Grisologo Anyway, here’s the best of my bus photos
Kapitan Kling Mosque in Jalan Kapitan Kling
Tourists should be properly attired when entering the Mosque but I don’t know what is proper or not. I never went inside anyway
Another view of the Kapitan Kling Mosque
They also use the word “Kapitan” and I researched about the meaning. “Kapitan Keling” means headman.
What I find really nice about this Mosque is the ocher yellow façade around the posts.
This was just a random photo and according to Willaz:
“I know they sell medicine and bird’s nest and many more.. but i couldnt recall the name!”
“Berhenti” I think means stop lol
Loveyly street with tourists walking around I would really love to go back here and walk.
Thanks for Willaz who tried to help me identify some landmarks.
this is the clock tower roundabout near the Esplanade
This is the Clock Tower, Pesiaran King Edward
Tanjung City Marina, Pengkalan Weld
I think this is where cruise ships dock
There are lots of worship places here. Mosques, Chinese Temples and churches
This is just some ruins I found while walking from the bus stop to
Another colorful temple just near our hotel.
Komtar Tower. Tallest structure in Penang.
It’s just 2 blocks away from our hotel.
We also rode a free bus that supposedly will take you around
This is the Hop on, Hop off bus
Another Chinese Temple in Jalan Sungai Ujong.
I wanted to go inside and do pai pai and ask questions, but I won’t understand Dhinese
I loved walking around the streets of Penang. It’s a friendly neighborhood.
You need to take pictures of signs of streets and places once in a while
Penang bridge to mainland Malaysia via Butterworth
I have been to KL a year ago and it was my first time traveling outside the Philippines alone. I was only there for about exactly 48 hours (2 days) and I just had little time to stroll around. I only went around Subang, Klang for some Bah Kut Teh, KLCC to take my picture with the Petronas Towers and south to Melaka.
I have heard of the yummy Penang Island *drools* The first few people I got to know in Malaysia were in Penang and now I’d love to call them friends And if you may ask where I got to have many friends in Malaysia, it’s all because of this. I really love these guys. I know that I’ve only gotten to know most of them online, but I feel like I’ve known them for years. They also came by the Philippines to say Hello I blogged all about it here. Actually, I just realized… I blogged a lot about them. Pretty much, they have influenced me a lot I guess when it comes to blogging. They were also the first blogger friends I had.
Okay lah, time to blog about me and Ed’s jet-setting adventure to Penang and KL!
Ed and I booked tickets like a year ago Why? Coz they were only for Php 621 (to and fro KL). Cebu Pacific went ZERO fare and I believe this has been the most inexpensive ticket I have ever bought! A few days after, Air Asia went super sale too! And so we bought tickets from KL to Penang. They were selling a ticket each for only RM 19 all in (RM 19 = Php 266 – ish). BINGO!
After a year…
I was on my car on the way to NAIA 3 and look at the weather… @_@
At the airport… I got hungry so I ate a little bit of unique donuts from Mister Donut.
I got lazy taking pictures of myself. Also, at that time, I felt ugly so no pictures la la la…
anyway, I took pictures of these tips I found on Smiles magazine
This one too… I was planning on following this but… I got lazy and tired too because I brought some work with me while on vacation.
We left NAIA 3 at around 10-ish (can’t remember well)
and… touchdown LCCT yaye! It was around 1:30 am then
Ed was busy checking stuff via LCCT’s wifi.
We got sooooooo hungry and it was so bad for both our diet
I still felt ugly but what the heck… *click*
I ate a cheeseburger meal by the way which cost RM 11 (P 160) @_@
Ed ate Spicy Chicken burger thingy… It was so spicy he was sweating like crazy XD
We had to wait for 5 hours for our next flight to Penang.
Tune Hotels is just nearby and had I known they had a 3-hour resting promo thingy then I would have booked a room and slept.
But, I didn’t know that so we waited at LCCT *faints*
Of course after 4 hours of waiting I got hungry again and ate something… Chrysanthemum tea is my favorite tea of all time and I love the Iced tea better!
I don’t know why but I can’t seem to find Chrysanthemum teas here in the Philippines so I often buy them when I’m abroad.
I didn’t know what was wrapped in this banana leaf when I bought it and I was surprised –
It’s Nasi Lemak wee! (bought everything at RM 10 or Php P145) @_@ expensive!
Nasi Lemak is like their favorite breakfast meal consisted of Rice steamed with coconut oil.
On the side are anchovies (Dilis) and shrimp paste (kinda like bagoong with tomato sauce and chili)
Oh yaye boarding time!
I guess we were so tired by then that we got grumpy over AirAsia. There were around 20 planes on dock and we had a hard time looking for our own plane.
We almost went to the wrong plane which was supposed to go to Johor Bahru (south of Malaysia near Signapore).
We spent like around 30 minutes looking for the plane. It wasn’t only me and Ed, the entirety of us passengers got lost lol
haaaaa… finally we found ze plane to Penang!
okay I look so demn tired at this time as you can see but I can still manage to smile as always
In flight Beautiful sunrise ^_^
I seem to notice that sunrise and sunsets are more colorful in the Island of Penang
they also call it “Pearl of the Orient”
and as you know, the Philippines is also “Pearl of the Orient”
no wonder I can relate so much with the people in Penang
We were supposed to take a cab as Satkuru suggested which should only cost about RM 60 – RM 70 I believe ( I can’t remember)
But, we were a little bit adventurous and we took the bus for only RM 2.70
We took the bus 401 which should take us to the Jetty port Bus station which is on the rightmost part of the map below
Jetty means we’re near Georgetown (near TuneHotels)
When we arrived to Jetty, we took another bus (Bus 101 Php 1.3) that took us directly to Tune hotels.
So, if ever you’re visiting Penang and you’re on a budget, and you’re wondering how to get from Penang International Airport to Tune Hotels (tunehotels.com)
then, just follow what we did. Bus 401 to Jetty Port. Another bus 101 to Tunes

We all know Google changes its Logo design once in a while and we know this mainly as “Google Doodle.” Unfortunately though not a lot of people catch this especially when they are directed to their local Google pages. Anyway, here’s the video for you guys who missed it.
Random questions in my head would be:
1. How many balls are there? Is there any significance?
2. Why are the balls afraid of the mouse?
3. Why is it addicting?
It clearly distracts us from our work They are creating great Doodles now. Not only are they putting up images alone, they also installed within the homepage a pacman game before on the game’s anniversary.
Of course, I just realized that flaircandy.com is also distracting you from your work by encouraging you to play. I have more game tricks for you… Do you want to play Gameboy on your Nokia e63 and e71? oh I just know how I even played pokemon gold on my Sony Ericsson P900i before If you want to know how, just email me… I’m just lazy to make a blog post because I want to play
Ice Watch just launched here in Manila on September 1, 2010. It’s pretty much a new watch brand born in the year 2007 and designed in Belgium. The brand’s designers are Jean-Pierre Lutgen (who I personally met and have photos with *see below*), Polly Yu and Christy So. The theme “Change. You Can.” has been inspiration of the designers as it came to life when they started to create a wide variety of watches that suit every lifestyle and every attitude.
Ice-Watch has been known for a wide variety of innovative designs in affordable prices, allowing more options and freedom to change and match. Personally, I find the designs very sleek and simple yet elegantly colorful enough to make my whole get-up stand out! They have over 20 different collections using different colors and materials that made it hard for me to pick at least one favorite watch from the entire set!
It would be a perfect gift for your loved ones too as the watches are very affordable. I thought of buying Vince one because I noticed that he doesn’t seem to wear any watch at all and that the designs are meant for him since he’s a cool DJ, surfer, skater and many more I think the watches match his attitude Lucky me I won a watch in an auction at the launch! They gave us play money with the invites and we got to participate in the auction…
Guess what I got!!!
It’s the Classic Green Ice-Watch!!!
RJ Ledesma hosted the Ice-Watch Launch at C3
I LURRRVE the packaging! It is designed to be collected as well…
I want to make a Megatron out of all the Ice-Watch cases
Models made their way on the ramp
The Classic Pastel Collection are very playful!
Ice-Watch World Philippines!
The Ice-Watch World Collection is inspired by the World Cup that happened this year…
I love the Philippine design It’s really simple and they only made 200 of these…
The other World design that I love is the Finland Ice-Watch World! Kimi Raikkonen is from Finland woot!
OMG look at that!!! It’s so BEAUTIFUL! Like it’s made of Ice!
I think though that I might need to go to Finland to get these
Or maybe… possibly, I can order this online!
The Ice-Watch event was graced by Jean-Pierre Lutgen himself
and here’s my picture with him
Bloggers in the background ^_^
ooh la la
Me and Abby, Thanks for inviting us!
Here is the darling I won at the auction!
Me claiming my amore
I got the watch by participating in the auction and used up Php 5000 of my play money
The Neon Collection
The Ice-Watch World Collection – Philippines
the Stone collection! *yums*
Anyway, you can check out more designs from their different collections on their official website below.
Check it out guys… I believe you have noticed the new layout of my blog FlairCandy.com I have been planning this since January 2010! But I didn’t have any really nice pictures to update the background. So, first things first, I though of having a photo shoot! Who says photo shoots are only for magazines and billboard ads? If you want one, you can actually have one. All you have to do is to find a photographer, a studio, and a makeup artist (If you don’t know how to do your own makeup). I actually know of some people who just do the photo shoot by themselves and it actually looks great!
Thank you so much to Vince for introducing me to Garvin who did the photo shoot. Garvin also thought of the techie, candy concept Check the awesome pictures below… I love it!!! Big thanks also to Char who did my hair and make-up despite the busy business day! Thanks for making me look really pretty Char And of course, thank you to Jehz for combining the photos and made a whole new layout! He did it only overnight! I have no doubt for this guy’s eye for creativity and art!
I was writing an article for my blog flaircandy.com and I was looking for a word that would describe my brain being drained of anything intellectual because of not sleeping straight since I left the Philippines.
The word “Zonked” just came to my mind. It sounded right and I though it would best describe how I feel… I wrote the next sentence, but I couldn’t move on because I realized that I have not used nor heard (consciously) of the word “Zonked” before. Since I wanted to impress someone for this article that I was writing, I played safe and replaced the word “Zonked.”
I checked my twitter a little bit and I saw Kristel tweeting about Josh Hartnet.
In the airplane… I was supposed to watch LOST… but even with my ear phones plugged in,I still couldn’t hear the audio well… So, I looked for other movies that I can watch… I started watching Wicker Part before and I figured I will continue watching it now (then was not probably the right time to watch Wicker Park).
Then, I was like… oooh, it’s Josh Hartnet, what a coincidence…
Then at the middle of the movie… he used the word *zonked*
