American Idol/Yet Another Proton Problem/Weddings

1.  American Idol.

Frankly speaking, I have not been following AI since the season when Taylor Hicks won (cant remember which).  I even missed the Finals for the season where Jordin Sparks won.  For last season’s AI, I managed to catch the Finals Result show though, and I enjoyed the performances by various celebrities, most notably by Bryan Adams with the other male contestants of AI.  Bryan’s still the man!

Anyway, since its THE Finale, I must, hop in the bandwagon and write something about it too.

So it was yet another guy vs guy finale.  Or rather, guy vs gay. Hah.  Kris vs Adam.  Which do you like?  I’d say,  Kris is for me.  First, I like his peaceful image, clean shave, plays the acoustic guitar and piano, and sings songs that I like.  Adam, on the other hand, has this goth, grunge, Twilight-Green Day bastardized image with weird sense of music and style.  But I must say this, between the two, I think Adam has better vocals, though I still vouch for Kris as the more ‘complete’ artiste because he can play instruments too.  Maybe I am biased lah, first, because Adam is too damn gothic for my liking, (Fish those ugly dugly suckly vampire eyeliners and black robotic outfit) and second, I have soft spot for men who can play the guitar.  I know, I’m weak =(.   I have had my eyes on him since the first time I saw him perform, probably in the Top 8 or something like that, and I somehow knew that he would make it to the top.  Like how I felt when I first saw Carrie Underwood during her audition a few years ago.  Also, when I saw Taylor Hicks in his audition the year after Carrie.  Hm, I have good foresight and jugment, kekekkekeke.  *perasan again*

Anyway, I am so happy that Kris Allen won, and I hope he wont be one of those AI winners who went under the radar after winning.  Macam Taylor Hicks.  What on earth happened to him la?

2.  Proton Again.

This is yet another Proton bashing entry.  Last night, or rather, in the wee hours in the morning, my proton car alarm went off.  Had to unlock the car so that the alarm shuts, because it was too dangerous for me to walk out to the car alone to check what triggered the alarm.  This morning, when I got to the car, I found that one of the rear doors was not fastened.  It was not only unlocked, it was loosely closed, like someone actually opened it and just push it slightly to close it, probably out of panic from the alarm system.  And I knew that that door had always been unable to lock properly.  It cant be my fault, alright, it is my fault that I didnt fork out money to fix a problem that SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE!   Look, it is outrightly NOT my problem because I seldom open that door.  I wish the car is not as problematic as it is, but as long as I’m still paying for it, I’ll have to live with the shortcomings that were packaged with the car.

But then again, I should be thankful that at least, I have a car.  Much better than not having one, especially for a kutu like me.


** Actually I have more to write, but had to truncate them because I am sleepy now.  To be continued…hopefully can upload some pics la.  Goodnight.
