Onnatachi is the result of two girls living in different countries, and who have different lives and different dreams. They would have never met if not for one fateful day on ICQ (The gods must have not been paying attention to let this happen). As time passed, and the topics of Hanakimi and bishounen never seemed to pass, they discovered some disturbing facts regarding their sanity and their undying love for purty bois. They both found out they thought in sync, and shared the same brainwave... One day, Charlene offered to create a shared blog between these two scary onna, and here we are!
Anna. 17. Female. Currently residing in Hong Kong. Her streak of insanity (which she tries to conceal, but never quite succeeds in doing so...) increases exponentially day by day, much to the chargin of her best friends. She is multilingual, but tends to forget which language she's supposed to be speaking, and at the most inopportune times too. Only hoping to get through her A levels intact, she still dreams of attending University at in the UK to study English Literature...
[ @AIM ]
Charlene. 17. Lives in Singapore. Absolutely evil but sweet (is this an oxymoron?), and wishes to do English Literature at University. She is the webmistress of Shizukesa, and controls the html+layout on Onnatachi-V.Fortunately for her idiotic computer illit. twin, she's v.good at this XD. Anime, webdesign, manga, music and of course, BISHOUNEN rule her world. V.kind, v.compassionate and a wonderful listener (though in our case, it's more like a wonderful reader -_-a), she is the best friend anyone would ask for. Together with Anna, she plans to dominate the world XD

Quite a lot to report, it seems.
Last Saturday, I went to the national theatre to watch 'Chicago', performed by professionals from the UK. They were AMAZING... incredible singing, beautiful movement... it was wonderful, only the BIG guy sitting in front of me with a BIG head blocked my view, so my sister and I were straining around.
I had a ki-doctor check me today. Christ. My body is a disaster zone. Bad heart and kidneys, which was the sharp pains I kept getting in the small of my back. And also the reason for being fat- my body can't circulate water and blood or whatever. And then I get dizzy too easily, get massive headaches, always feel like I'm being smothered. Basically, she said my balance is totally out of whack.
UGH. And she said I was too unhealthy for my age till I said I was 17. She thought I was a university student.
Anyway. The headaches are back. Time to say goodbye~

Ugh. Life is doing my head in... anything to recommend?
I can't sleep these days. I stay up till the crack of dawn, and it takes hours to get me drowsy enough to even think about sleeping. I've always been like this, but it's getting worse -_-;
That was very pointless.
I'm going to indulge in a moment of rabu-rabu with my smuggled in manga... I'll probably have to hold my nose to muffle the squeals XDXD Afterall, having a Satoshi and Daisuke incarnate in a Korean manga (by a mangaka I HEART immensely!) is.... meh hehehhehehehe.

Today I went for the Temasek Seminar at SAFTI MI.
Well, it ended earlier than I expected and was actually pretty good. Better than the 3 day Pre-U Seminar anyways. We totally weren't expecting anything grand or remotely prestigious but we were transported to a military institute where they seemed really big on security (they had little wheel-able mirrors to check if there was anything smuggled underneath the coach) and it all reminded me a little of FFVIII when Selphie and gang have to infiltrate a Galbadian Missile Base to stop Trabia and Balamb Gardens from being bombed.
The place was really pretty, and looked a little like a large foreign university in red brick. Apparently it's where they train the most elite of the National Service men, or the Officer Cadets. The teacher was irritated that I didn't tuck in my shirt and I was supposed to be one of the "media people" who would "talk to the media" but in the end we didn't get to at all, and I guess by "media people" they meant people who sit behind the ministers and look presentable for pictures by the press. It's true, there were an awful lot of cameras and lights which made it difficult to concentrate on what the speaker was saying.
Anyhow, what the speakers said were interesting and important and I felt it went a whole lot better than at Pre-U Sem where everyone seemed disorganized and evaded questions, etc. Our outgoing and incoming education ministers were there, so they were bombarded with complaints about the education system (as always) and some guy spoke about the recent terrorist threats in S'pore. It wasn't really pertinent but I guess they were trying to address some of the key concerns of people. (Though students are really almost always more keen on making things easier for themselves than on other more global issues.)
The food was good, and we had lots of nice things in our paper bag. A swiss army knife, a good pen, a large notebook and the collar pin of the military institute. After the speeches and panel discussions, we went on a tour of the place and I was excited because I realized that Jeevan was actually training there at that very moment! He smsed that he saw me but I didn't see him. :( Disappointing! I would've liked to see him in his army uniform.
My feet are aching horribly from having to wear court shoes everywhere all day. I'm gonna go nurse them now.

I'm so sick and tired of hearing my mom nag about how I should be working. To her, the SUMMER HOLIDAY means workworkclassclassstudystudy!!!! So what was that about relaxing and getting the energy back during the 'free time'??? And ths school teachers. They say 'oh you'll have loads of time during the summer'. As IF. Four subjects, every teacher demands summer work (in case of Drama and Art... that's loads of work. If only for the workload, I am DROPPING either of them.) which is supposed to help next year blahblahblah. Ugh. As for the Summer classes... I'm going to take classes from Princeton Review as well, starting from Thursday, but it's a SAT II Writing Strategy class. I don't NEED that, what I need are math classes for IC, with Teachers who know what they're doing. At the moment, I don't understand what the teacher's saying... in fact, I do much better when I DON'T listen to him. How's that...
I can understand why kids get so irritated when they're teething. My Wisdom Tooth on my upper right just cleared through the gum and now, every time I smile or smirk, I can feel it. It's bloody irritating.
So far, my summer has sucked big time.

I've been too distracted and busy to blog lately. -_- School has been tiring, leaving me with little energy at the end of the day to do very much except the assignments due the next day. Mostly because I've been going through some sort of mental block, probably my brain was tired and wanted to take a break, something like that.
Sometimes I find myself wondering if I made the right decision coming to JC. It's so fast-paced and there's absolutely no room to slack that I feel so stifled. Even when I am slacking, the disturbing sense that I'm doing something terribly bad is there. o__O Wow. That sounds truly awful when I type it out like that.
I think I really need a break. A friend showed me a photo of the Sentosa beaches and they look really clean and pretty!! (Much different from when I last visited which was when I was a little kid.) I feel so very much like spending a day there reading or listening to music and swimming.
Not this Saturday though. Some student conference thing to attend for Project Work, and my friend's piano concert. (yay!)
What a boring and mundane entry. I guess I just wanted to say something to let everyone see I'm alive.

My voice is nearly gone, but funny enough, I can sing clear. I just had a two-hours and a half session of karaoke... and I just had to choose the loud technotypes to lose my voice to. Still, pretty fun... but I am so beat.
Recent events in Hong Kong... as well as just thinking, makes me feel like I put too much of my personal life online... Someone in a different school got expelled for something he wrote on his xanga. Probably libel -_- which buggers the question, do I slander people on Onnatachi? If that's the case, I should really.. well, I don't know. It's not like anything's going to change. No real specifics either... *scratches head*
It's been ages since I've talked to Charlene and Tin-nee. That's a little sad.. I mean... I used to have so much fun, in what little bits of conversations we had. T_T Everyone's drifting apart... less time to squander, and more responsibilities in RL... T_T

Ugh. I've been caught up in RL, doing... well, nothing much other than reading manga and watching TV. Korea really does that to me... I don't glue myself to the computer because there's more out there to do. I haven't started my summer classes yet, but I know I'll start sometime soon... Friday? Monday? Dunno. I'll have to check.
It never fails to amaze me how completely BULLSHIT some manga could be. Lacking in humour (as in, say, the mangaka seems to find it funny, as will some kids in diapers, but otherwise tasteless), whacked out incomprehensive storyline which CHANGES EVERY BLOODY FIVE SECONDS, characters that are not-so-evil and utterly unlovable... HELLO EDITORS, WHAT WERE YOU _THINKING_??
However. That's the bad stuff I've been reading. The GOOD, however... are amazing. I know it's mostly personal taste, but I'm willing to take a shot at reading anything, as long as it catches the eye. There's a really fun one called 'Chun Heng Gi' (something about the Heaven and Records?). It involves the youngest daughter of the Jade Emperor who's run away from home (cuz she doesn't want to marry the King of Hell -_-;;), the Four Guardians of the Directions (..as in, Genbu, Suzaku, Byakko and Seiryuu...) and a shady character. Scary part is.. Genbu (.. did I get the name right? I only know it in Korean -_-) and Seiryuu are a team. They look EXACTLY like Satoshi and Daisuke. They even ACT like them, to a certain degree, only Satoshi-kid has slightly longer hair, and is less cold to people. Otherwise, the efficiency, intelligence, sharp attitude etcetc are the same. I think he's got a thing going for the Princess XD. The Princess... -_- is in drag. She's pretending to be a normal highschool boy... she's got the attitude to match it. The Four Guardians have a mission to bring back the Princess before her wedding day, but two of them (Byakko and Suzaku, sister and brother. Brother has a mega siscom towards his aneki XDXD) are ChunYoo (Princess)'s friends. Argh. I could go on and on. I'll just stop here XD. Only woke up half an hour ago... did the laundry -_-;; and now, it's time for me to wash and go out!!

I've always believed that when you start something, you can't stop. Therefore. Don't start it at all. It's been one of my main principles, in dealing with what society calls the evils- drugs, smoking, alcohol, etc. And it's also been my excuse for not joining in with the late going outs. Simply put, I'm a 'boring' person.
The thing is, I've got nothing against people who smoke. I do get irriated at the idiots in my school who start smoking to look cool- smoking doesn't automatically make you cool. Same with the idiots who want to fit in, and keep talking about the drugs they've done, their experience blahblahblah. I know some people smoke to relax. Some actually like it. I'm fine with that, I respect that- how can I not? I'm always on about rights, and looking at my dad... he can't function without a cigarette in his hand. Which is why I don't say anything, and also why I get annoyed when my mom picks a fight with him because of that- it's about time she gave up, it's been nearly three decades. She knows she can't fight her habit of chewing her nails, so why grudge him his cigs? To be fair, my mother is extrasensitive to the point of getting physically sick when she's upset or smells something strong. I'm like her to a certain extent, but I can't say anything to my dad, because I'm too mean to him anyway.
...I think we need some more tolerance in this family.

Uh.... Sorry for disappearing like that. It's been a busy week or so.
My Dinner Dance was on... well, that's last Monday, now. It was pretty fun... after I started dancing, of course. But, there's a slight problem. This was years ago, but I used to dance with a group of girls for the public, like the school fair and assemblies... and the thing was, once I got over the shyness, I would bop and move to the music whenever I had the chance. Now, this habit got trained? forced? out of me, and for a few long years, I haven't even moved to the music. Now, after the dinner dance... I start dancing in HMV. It's embarrassing. I was watching Charlie's Angels... couldn't stop there either XD.
By the way... I'm in Korea right now. The house is HUGE, compared to our little 'shack' in Hong Kong (despite its size, I love my little shack)... and we've got a brand new PC!!! The tower is SMALL... and we've got a CD burner~ yay!! AND~ It's Windows XP... bwahahaha, I'll have FUN this summer. I used to weep at the connection and PC here.
It's late.. I should sleep, but the iced tea is keeping me awake, for the fifth time this week. I had Bennighan's for dinner... stuffed my face. UGH.

Wow, I am in the middle of my Common Tests and I'm pretty sure I flunked History already. I can scrape a pass for Econs and a better grade for Lit, but I'm really screwed for GP and Chinese (even though I haven't done the paper yet, but I know.) Ah well, there's always the Promos. And besides, I really can't expect good grades if I didn't study.
I have read Hanakimi 20 (poor Nakao! I feel so sorry for him I almost like him--almost), Murakami's Sputnik Sweetheart (in a few hours, it's so short! But lovely as ever...reading him always makes me doubt reality) and Order of the Phoenix. Order quite disappointed me in more ways than one, but I won't elaborate. Everyone I know loves it, but somehow I wasn't able to feel as satisfied with it as I was the past four books. But viewing it as a prelude to the final battle (as Selene said) makes it a lot better.
Been listening to a lot of Mew, too much. And while playing Noah's Ark from the moment I get up! XD Because I play it two hours straight at one go, nothing seems to get into my head even though I read the same notes four times!
The holiday passed by really quickly. I didn't get much (any) studying done, but I finished Melmoth and did my Lit essay. There's a lot more homework waiting for me after the CTs but I'll leave that for later. =) I had a lot of fun, and caught up with a lot of people. That was really much more important than getting work done.

If you can't take concern for what it is, and only twist it in your own indignation, and worst of all, you fail to see or understand because you refuse to look beyond yourself, then perhaps it's just not worth it. If you refuse to listen because you're too hurt I can only take that as the limits of our friendship. Whether that is an absolute limit, or just an unseen line, that's up for you to decide. But if you think I'm going to take the blame simply because I was wrong, and you don't think of what CAUSED it, then I suggest you either look into yourself or not bother with the pretence of friendship. I've tried to understand, I've tried to ignore, but something had to be done, and if you took it the wrong way, and won't bother listening to my own reasoning, we'll just let it go and say we were both selfish. In anycase, this seems to be the last time I can speak to you honestly as a friend. I don't know if you'll read this or not. If you don't, that's fine. That's only going to be shutting the book, and not bothering to find out what happens in the end. If you do, I suppose it's the first step to consideration I've seen in a while.

I read HP 5. Harry irritated me to no end, but that's probably because he's not the quiet little boy anymore. And I haven't read the entire book, just the first 400 and last 50?100? pages. I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY KILLED HIM OFF. NO WAY IN *HELL*...
Eh. Tired as hell. I seem to be doing a lot of walking around and shopping these days... I met up with Sindy today, and went around cwb. Mucho fun... but got so tired towards the end ~_~. I bought... a watch, the straps of which are chains, with little charms hanging on them =). And... some bits of makeup I'll need, and a bracelet. Sindy got me the bracelet (I swear I was joking, Sindy!!!!), and it's a really nice one- basically, a cluster of blue cats eyes, big blue beads and clear quartz... I really like it =). I also got my shawl for the dinner dance *cheers* it's really pretty =). Okay, enough of that, I need to take a bath then do some art and sleep...

I only have about a week more of holidays... *depressed* I haven't started studying for any of my tests yet, at page 535 of Melmoth now. Boy, it's a tough book. Really good, but still. It takes a lot outta me just to read it. =_=
I stayed home the last two days and have been insanely bored. I mean, the weather is too hot to get out and do stuff and I still have Melmoth so. =(
Some recent purchases include Kings of Convenience's Versus, the first volume of Sandman and too many clothes. I spent this week's and next week's allowance in advance last week. XD Jeevan got me Dandy Warhols' "Welcome to the Monkey House." He's such a dear.
