The Spinning Woman!

Reading all the comments for my previous post was very heartwarming :’)

I am really glad to know that people can find my post easy to relate to. There is no need to thank me, others gave me plentiful good advice in the past but I ignored most… I’m hoping my post could have reached out to at least some of you out there.

Anyway, today’s a new topic and it’s far from being emo!

Because I’m geeky like that, today I am going to blog about an Optical Illusion!!!

It fascinates me to no end and I go like, “ooOOooh! Aahhhh..” everytime I see it, so I thought I’d share with you guys this gem I found over the internet!

This is a really popular one that I’m sure at least some of you have seen. It’s not really an optical illusion per se, but it’s extremely entertaining nonetheless.

Known as the “spinning woman”, this silhouette looks like just any other dancing figure…

But the question is, can you make her dance for you?

According to studies, if at first glance you see the woman spinning clockwise, then you use the left side of your brain more and vice versa, if you see her spinning anti-clockwise, you are using the right side of your brain.

If you really want to, you can CONTROL the movements of this dancer, solely by exerting enough control over your brain.

Apparently, most people would see her spinning anti-clockwise but I saw her spinning clockwise at first! You can google the difference between people who use their left / right brain to find out what kind of person you are.

At first, this woman never changed direction for me at all, and I got frustrated knowing that others can while starting to doubt it – could be some lame Internet scam.

But after 40 minutes, and after much concentration plus a substantial amount of patience and faith, I can change her direction every few seconds at will now and it’s so cool because I’m telling my brain what to do, and not having my body take total control over me!

The brain sees what it wants to believe.. It all depends on how much you want to believe it.


Try it for yourself!!!!

Tried, but still can’t change her movements by yourself? Here’s a few neat tricks to share with you guys, after wasting 1 hour + on my life staring at the above illusion, I am now a spinning woman illusion master!!!

Easy ways I’ve discovered to change her direction:

1) First off, you have to believe that this woman CAN and WILL change direction for you.
Like I said, the brain sees what it wants to believe. If you’re thinking that this is a rigged picture – it’s not. Get your bf/ gf / family to stand beside you and ask them if they see the woman spinning anti-clockwise or clockwise – high chances are, your answers will be different.

Frustration gets you nowhere… To be able to fool the brain and manipulate your own vision, you have to be open to the possibility otherwise it’s not going to work. One side of your brain cannot be too dominant!

.
.
.
.

2) Start off by looking at fancy and vibrant pictures / photographs that are full of life, and once you’ve absorbed that, look back at the spinning woman.

Then, read a confusing chunk of text about anything – read your history textbook, google “What are nuclear weapons made of” - anything that’s foreign and confusing!

Logic and imagination is handled by two different parts of your brain. I looked at a picture of me and Sam on holiday then I started to read a chunk of text – amazingly enough, the moment I started to change my focus on the two different subjects, from the corner of my eye I could see the woman change her direction!!!

.
.
.
.

4) Another easy peasy way would be to stare at the upper half of the woman’s body for about 30 seconds.

Just focus on the direction that she is spinning, then change your focus onto her lower half of the body. The shadow of her spinning feet would trick your brain, and she should change direction for you. Alternatively, you can scroll my blog blog so that all you can see is the the top part of her head. Then, slowly scroll down further to reveal the rest of the image.

Take note of which direction she’s spinning, then repeat the same experiment again, this time starting from the bottom and ONLY revealing the shadow of her feet! You must not be able to see her body. Slowly scroll upwards to reveal the rest and you should find that the direction has changed,

.
.
.
.

5) Once you’ve mastered the above steps and have started to properly freak out, it is time for the ultimate test.

Instead of resorting to additional materials for help, don’t look at pictures, don’t read confusing text and don’t look at her shadow.

Cover the tell-tale shadow, then simply start to focus on the contours of her body. You will realize that her body is designed in a way that at a certain angle, it is easy to picture her spinning in the opposite direction while still in the same position!

Because she is merely a 2d-silhouette, it’s hard for the brain to picture depth and shadows etc, so reality is easily changed.

With enough willpower, you can focus on imagining her changing direction and with enough time and mastery, you should be able to manipulate her movements every few seconds, whenever you’d like to!

Voila!!!!

Now you have your very own dancing ballerina, choreographed to the thoughts of your brain.
Fascinating or what?!? I don’t think I’d ever get bored of it.

Oh, and one more thing! If you find this all hard to believe, get somebody to record you and the image of the spinning woman for about 1 minute.

Whenever you see her change direction, shout out “Changed direction!” and then replay your footage.

You’d realize that she never changes direction at fixed intervals. You may have shouted “changed direction”, but what was caught on footage shows that she was still spinning the same way along…

Call me a nerd, but I’m so easily fascinated by how the brain works!!!


…So tell me, do you have power over your own body?

Okie, back to my own life, enough attention for spinning woman already.

Went to pick Sam up from the airport last night, and decided to glam it up a little to surprise him!

Usually I’m just in T-shirt and shorts and I look like death, cuz his flights always come in at 12am +.

Good hair days are always a fabulous excuse to post huge ass vain pictures of yourself! I love how my hair looks in this picture :>

But I just removed my hair extensions just now, cuz I’m fickle like that!!!! Only had it on for a month plus or two.

If you want hair extensions like mine, go to my sidebar on the left and there’s a banner for Milly’s that you can find out more details on ^.^ Or just click here!

Can’t wait for my upcoming hair sponsor.. So needing a new cut and a new dye job, roar! But since it’s going to be sponsored, I’m trying to be patient and wait for a week + instead of spending the money myself now.

Okily dokily, back to doing my advertorial. Byee!!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend people. Mine’s gonna be fab cuz I’m gonna be with Sam HEHEHE!

Warwick Avenue

I love this song and I usually sing it when I’m in a good mood, but today it just caught me and tugged on my heart strings while I was unexpectedly vulnerable, and I feel compelled to open up and share my own experiences with other people so here goes.

Listening to this song and watching the tears roll down Duffy’s face made me think of my own tears that I shed while being in the exact same situation.

This song is about moving on to better things in life, to break free from a seemingly bottomless pit and finally realizing that you’re better off than what you once believed you could never live without.

For 2 and a half years of my life, I lived everyday thinking that I was in love with my ex-boyfriend and that I could never survive a day without him.

Almost a year later, I’m in a relationship with someone who appreciates me more, I am generally happier and definitely better off.

Despite the fact that I’m in love with someone completely new and have already moved on, it seems like every now and then I remember what used to be my world, and I remember one of the hardest lessons I’ve learned and will ever learn.

They say “the first cut is the deepest”, and I’m sorry if I have to resort to cliche and over-repeated quotes we have all heard before to emphasize on what I really mean, but these quotes wouldn’t be so famous if they weren’t so true.

Your first love would be nothing like the rest of your relationships. It is the first time you fall in love that you fall the deepest, because you love like you’ve never been hurt before. And that, in my opinion, is one of the truest forms of love.

Because in my first real relationship, I taught myself how to love unconditionally. I was new to this scene, and all I could really understand was how hard and fast he made my heart beat.

I’ve never known heartbreak like how it knew to always find its way to me, and because I’ve never been hurt quite so badly, I also never knew how to protect myself.

For the longest time, I was obsessed with the fact that I was in love with somebody whom I thought was perfect for me, never once stopping to realize that perhaps I’m in love with the idea of what I’d like him to be or who I THINK he is, and not realizing who he actually was is someone I’ve never known, and still don’t.


I was trying to hold onto someone who was already gone.

I was young, far too young and naive back then to even begin to grasp the basic concept of relationships. I just knew that I had to love him, and that I had to be with him.

When you’re in a relationship like that, you don’t stop to think that one day, all that was your entire world would come crashing down on your head, taking you along with it.

You’d never imagine that he would say the hurtful things to shatter your world that he eventually did one day, you’d never imagine that you were merely placed as an option all along when he was obviously your priority.

And so I got hurt.

I was lied to, I was emotionally abused and I cried like I’ve never cried before.

He didn’t want to see me, he was seeing other girls and making use of me, toying with my feelings and you know… just doing the usual stuff to break my heart.


And you know what? That’s okay.

Everyone goes through heartbreak, and sometimes you’re gonna wholeheartedly trust that seemingly special someone who steals your heart but conveniently steps all over it and leaves you to bleed out all by yourself… but the most important part is knowing how to pick up the pieces and walk away.

There will always be assholes out there.

But they are not the biggest problem of all.

I am not quite as upset about the fact that he cheated me a hundred times too many, and absolutely destroyed my self-esteem and every ounce of self-respect I had for myself..

What I’m really, really cut about is the fact that I let him do it to me. Over and over again.

I let him hurt me, because I was too eager to believe his lies, too desperate to feel wanted and loved.

I believe that..

The first time he lies to you, it is his fault.

The second, third, fourth and countless other times are all your fault.

You must know that if he lies to you once, he definitely can lie to you again. I am not saying that he definitely will, I am just saying that he might and is definitely capable of repeating the same mistakes.

And you know what else?! Don’t be an idiot.

There’s a chance that he won’t tear you up inside again, but don’t use that as an excuse to throw away your dignity and self-worth and readily accept living a lie while in self-denial.

Don’t let that be the reason why you forgive him after his second repeated mistake even though there was a gut feeling inside you telling you that something is very, very wrong.

I’ll be completely honest with you and tell you that the only reason why I stuck with my ex-boyfriend for so long was because I was too obsessed with the idea that some day he will change for me, and I can say that I was right here waiting for him all along.

They say love is unconditional, and me being the idiot that I was, happily lapped up every single ounce of bullshit that was spoon fed to me by clueless people who claimed that true love is unconditional.

And it was my first relationship – of course I thought I was truly in love.

But I’ve been meaning to say this for awhile now so I will say it loud and clear.


FUCK UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

The last time I listened to that shitty advice, I got my heart seriously fucking broken.

Only 2 types of people would promote “unconditional love” :

Mother Teresa, or somebody who just couldn’t find anyone better out there to make themselves happier and simply resigned to their lowly fate.

You know, that would be the sort of shit coming from Jerk Neo’s wife, going like “I will love him no matter what, stick by him through thick and thin……… even though he wanted to stick his penis into everything that was breathing and had a hole beneath ignoring the fact that we are married with kids”

Yes, your love may be “unconditional”, and that is the reason why your husband is going around having sex with girls half your age and probably why you are so bloody miserable and still haven’t left him yet.

They say she’s known about the affairs, but kept one eye shut.

What’s even more astonishing is the fact that some girls said they found her love to be very inspiring and strong. What kind of message is this woman sending across to young girls in Singapore?!?

That it is okay for your husband to cheat on you?

Or that knowingly letting your husband belittle you and everything that your marriage stood for is loving someone unconditionally?

It’s not.

It is, more than anything, sheer stupidity and lack of self-respect for yourself.

I find that 99% of the time, guys take girls for granted because we let them. Never let the guy feel like he doesn’t even need to earn your respect or forgiveness when he’s done something wrong.

A relationship shouldn’t be something just to HAVE, it’s something to work for!!!

Practicality over passion is for losers who end up marrying someone they wish they didn’t and spend the rest of their lives hating on people who are actually in love and happy.

Who is going to respect you if you don’t respect yourself?

“To love somebody, you must first love yourself.”

Sounds like a load of bullocks, but let me explain it to you.

When you love yourself, you learn to take pride in having utmost dignity and respect your self-worth. With that, men will eventually realize that they cannot shove you aside and trample all over you like a barbie doll – They will learn to respect you as well.

They say “trust is the fundamental base in a relationship” but what they don’t tell you is that someone will only bother to tell you the inconvenient truth if they respect you enough.

Otherwise, they’d figure that you are not even worth explaining to and would forget the whole idea of being completely honest with you in the end.

Without mutual respect, there will be no honesty and not enough consideration, and with that, there will certainly be no happiness and love.

No guy in his right mind would intentionally or knowingly hurt a woman he really cares about, he would rather hurt himself.

If he’s willing to take that chance, then obviously he doesn’t care about you as much as you think he does.

Love can be impractical (like my own long-distance relationship), sometimes it may not even make sense but


LOVE IS NOT UNCONDITIONAL UNLESS IT’S FROM YOUR MOTHER!

It worries me when I see how many girls out there are in destructive relationships, letting themselves be physically and emotionally abused by their boyfriends – all in the name of “unconditional love”!!

Please stand up for yourself and have some dignity!

.

You’re better off without the boy who would always rather spend time playing stupid computer games than precious time with you,

The boy who always seems to have suspiciously over-friendly text messages with random girls on his phone

The boy who shortens your dates because he would rather do something else with other people

The boy who (indirectly or not) compares you to other girls with better figures, looks etc or says bad things about you to destroy your self esteem

The boy who always conveniently fails to pick up his phone while he’s out partying at night

The boy who turns violent and whose aggressiveness scares / harms you when you guys have fights

The boy who never keeps his promises, from the littlest to the biggest things

The boy who says bad things about behind your back to his / your friends

The boy who could look you straight in the eyes and tell a blatant lie without even blinking

The boy who never replies your sweet text messages and never calls back when he says he will

The boy who seems to love you, but seems to like every other girl as well

…And the boy who just never loved and appreciated you enough.

Most girls are unrealistically optimistic about their relationships or sometimes just in major self-denial, so if there happens to be a voice inside your head telling you that something is wrong, don’t ignore it.

I remember crying myself to sleep wishing that things would get better, but they never did. Not until I took control of my own life and stopped letting a destructive relationship consume me.

And I know I’m not the only one who cries myself to sleep (or used to)

If he abuses you in any way or if he really does not make you happy, you are better off without him. It will hurt a lot in the beginning, but eventually you will thank yourself for making the right decision.

Perhaps this may be hard to believe for those who are stuck in a shitty relationship or situation right now..

But some day you will meet somebody new, who will treat you the way you should be and want to be treated then you will realize that relationships hold a whole new meaning to you.

It is not a quest for dominance, it is a lovely partnership where you can both contribute to each others lives and make it more worthwhile.

I concur that having the balls to break up with my abusive and manipulative ex-boyfriend is one of the best decisions I have ever made, and has allowed me to grow so much as a person.

Muster whatever courage that you have, and take a leap from this black hole that’s eating you up inside. Break free.

I know it is easier said than done – I’ve been in my fair share of pretty awful situations myself. I know what it’s like to feel completely trapped in a bottomless pit that you feel like you’ve got yourself in..

But stop bloody wallowing in self-pity and DO SOMETHING to make your life better!

And when you do finally take the plunge, be firm with your decision and never look back.

Nothing says weak like trying to walk away from someone but giving up halfway and ending up running right back into his waiting arms because he knew you just weren’t strong enough to do it.

With each try, the next will be harder, and more distant.

Oh and of course, assholes are not worth being friends with!!! Tell the ex to go screw himself if he wants to be “friends”, more like he wants make up sex or something y’know? Don’t trust him.

In the past, I let myself down by allowing my ex-boyfriend to mistreat me for so long, but I will go out of my way to make sure this doesn’t happen to me again, or anyone that I really care about.

A mistake is not wasted if the lesson is learned, so I’m sharing mine with you.

I had to learn all of this through the hard way, and it took up 2 and a half of some of the best years of my life.

I only hope that this blog post would reach out to somebody out there who is in a similar situation as I was in and find that this post has helped them understand things a little better,

or have given them the slightest bit of inspiration to breaking free from an unhealthy relationship that’s causing more misery than it’s worth.

I’m giving you advice that I’m taking myself. We are all still young (unless you’re like, 50. hi mum) and we shouldn’t have to settle for less than what we can get.

We have the rest of our lives for commitment, but settling for an unhealthy relationship at a young age is just plain silly, silly, silly! No wonder my mum always told me I was sooooo naive and borderline delusional.

Don’t wait by the phone for the call that will never come, and stop giving someone who doesn’t deserve it a second chance.

It’s not called a second chance when it’s been said and done more than twice..

Stop trying to change that person – start by changing yourself!!!!!!

I leave you with lyrics from Warwick Avenue by Duffy.

For your convenience, I have embedded the video twice in this post because it’s an awesome song that makes the lyrics so easy to relate to.

When I get to Warwick Avenue
Meet me by the entrance of the tube
We can talk things over a little time
Promise me you won’t stand by the light

When I get to Warwick Avenue
Please drop the past and be true
Don’t think we’re okay just because I’m here
You hurt me bad but I won’t shed a tear

I’m leaving you for the last time baby
You think you’re loving but you don’t love me
I’ve been confused, out of my mind lately
You think you’re loving but I want to be free
Baby, you’ve hurt me

When I get to Warwick Avenue
We’ll spend an hour but no more than two
Our only chance to speak once more
I showed you the answers, now here’s the door

When I get to Warwick Avenue
I’ll tell you baby that we’re through

I’m leaving you for the last time baby
You think you’re loving but you don’t love me
I’ve been confused, out of my mind lately
You think you’re loving but you don’t love me
I want to be free, baby, you’ve hurt me

All the days spent together, I wished for better
But I didn’t want the train to come
Now it’s departed, I’m broken hearted
Seems like we never started

All those days spent together when I wished for better
And I didn’t want the train to come

“I’m leaving you for the last time baby
I’ve been confused, out of my mind lately

You think you’re loving but you don’t love me
I want to be free, baby, you’ve hurt me”

…Here’s to all the girls (and boys) who know exactly what the fuck I am talking about.

Fight for your own happiness because you deserve it.

Universal Studios

I feel sooooo much better!!!

Sam’s on the flight back home now, and even though we haven’t really talked a lot about our situation, I already feel like things are fixed. I guess all I really needed was a big, big hug and reassurance that all this effort will not be for nothing and that we’re both not wasting our own time. I snapped about a week ago because there was just so many things on my mind. Most of the time, relationship problems are the least of my concerns.

People seem to be under the impression that I lead a stupidly carefree life, which makes me wonder how naive they really are. I must be doing my job right then.

It’s good to be real and post about how you are REALLY feeling deep down inside every once in awhile, but nobody wants to have to read the diary of an emo kid every day.

Everyone has their own problems, I try to trouble others with mine as infrequently as possible.

.
.
.
.
.

So anyway, besides writing melodramatic posts on my blog, I also enjoy traveling across the world and visiting their theme parks whenever I can, so here’s a post on my time spent at Universal Studios!!!

Hehehe so cute!!!!

This is Bob, my baby shamu accompanying me at the breakfast table while Sam ran up to the hotel room to grab our memory cards for the cameras.

Oh how I miss starting every morning in Orlando with the heartiest breakfasts ever!

We ordered breakfast and I had fillet of steak, baked potatoes + tomato and scrambled eggs which was one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had :D

That’s one of the great things about staying in a 5 star hotel – you can order absolutely anything on their menu and it will still be yummy yum yum!

*insert random weird narcissistic picture of myself cuz I can*


O hai, Universal Studios!!!

Where movies come to life!!!! I love movies and I love theme parks – this definitely works for me! ;)

I remember the first time my Dad brought me to Universal Studios. I wasn’t too excited at first, I just wanted to stay in Disney the whole time but I ended up loving it to bits because it’s like a theme park for older people.

You don’t get to see the mouse anywhere, but you get really cool effects and spectacular shows! Plus the buildings and architecture is quite amazing.

Instead of taking pictures with Disney Princesses, you get to take a pic with Marilyn Monroe & friends!!! How snazzy do they look?! I do love that fur coat.


I ADORE everything vintage - I wish I was born in the ’60s!

I love their era of music, fashion, and somehow life seemed a lot simpler but sweeter.

Universal Studios is so so so photogenic

Perfect place for people watching and a cuppa in the morning

What a sexy car!!!!!!!

I don’t care for cars, but how can I resist the old school charm of this black baby?

Hahahaha this pose would work better if I wasn’t wearing my boyfriend’s clothes and squinting so hard I didn’t even know where I was looking.

I can’t imagine when I’ll start driving!! But when I do, Sam said he’ll buy me a Pink Volkswagen Beetle Convertible!!! Omg even if he doesn’t I will buy it myself eventually!

I still can’t believe my mum got the white one *face palm*

I was approached by these two super cheeky mascots!

Woody Woodpecker and some monkey whose name I was told is George. Woody has the funniest and most annoying laughter ever!!! Been so long since I watched cartoons on TV. (or anything on TV in general)

It’s real cute and funny when mascots try to flirt with you – they do things like kiss your hand and hug you but the boyfriend can’t do anything!

Out first show was about Horror & Make UpI remember this from when I was about 10 years old!!!

Universal Studios is all about going behind the scenes and into the movies that they make, and this show demonstrates to people how they do certain special effects and make up that you see in their horror films!

For example, they showed us the machine which was used for the transformation from human to wolf in the classic “Wolfman”

The show started off with a big bang – or a scream, for this matter.

This woman came bustling through the doors, flailing her arms around and screeching.. oh and of course, she seems to have a knife stabbed into her bleeding chest.

She stumbled around the room and when she got to my side, I whipped out my camera and said “Ok now pose!” and she actually did LOL

I loved watching her, she’s such a riot and reminds me of Ellen Degeneres!

She and her partner were endless entertainment and original which made the performance so enjoyable to watch.

The best part? It wasn’t kid friendly. Tons of hilariously inappropriate jokes - Love it.

It was great to leave Disney behind for a bit.


Nothing says picture perfect like an arm that’s being cut open!

Sam in a fab mood after watching a great show.. and the person behind him obviously wants some attention so Congratulations, you’re on Underage-Girl’s blog now!

E.T ride!!!!!!

I heart this ride, you get to go on flying bicycles throughout the E.T adventure, and how often do you get to sit on bicycles that are suspended in mid air?!

So nostalgic :’)

.

The BEST part about Universal Studios is definitely the fact that they sell express tickets.

Which means you don’t have to wait in line for most of the attractions – for an extra (I think) 30 USD per person, you get to zip to the front of the line for every attraction, once.

So much better than Disney’s Fast Pass system! Come on Disney, you rip people off for everything already, might as well let those who can afford it buy express tickets!

The Fast Pass system is ridiculous because it’s a machine that gives you tickets that tell you to come back at a later timing, which could be anywhere from 15 minutes to 5 hours.

So basically you’d have to plan your day according to the Fast Pass tickets – or you could just wait in line for every ride for 2 hours. (You can only use a certain number of Fast Pass – very limited!)

The worst part is, Fast Pass tickets for the popular rides run out in the early morning and for the poor people in line,
the wait is extended even longer because everytime you think you’re that much closer to the front of the line,
a whole horde of FastPass dickheads would waltz in when their time comes (like 50 of them at one shot) and you’re like wtf, that’s another 20 minutes.

We could have saved like 20 hours of our life. Meh.

Ok *end of rant*

“Pet Ahoy!” show by Universal Studios – Lolol they came up with this story where they made it seem like the little boy actually stole the Orang-Utan’s bra.

They are so human like it’s not even funny!


SIMPSONS LAND!

Sam’s eyes lit up so brightly when he entered the place, he was like “Omg omg kiwk e mart, that’s the mini mart which Apu works at and owns!”

We walked inside and I think he half expected to see a funny looking indian with the most ridiculous accent behind the counter welcoming him, too bad it didn’t happen hahahaha

A little boy excitedly collecting Simpson-pressed pennies :)

Sam LOVES The Simpsons, he swears to have seen every single episode. It’s pretty funny, but a lot of the times I don’t get their jokes about american politics and other things that are so foreign :3


LOLOL HAI HOMER!!!!!!!!!! *pokes belly*

Him meeting Homer would be like me meeting Freddie Mercury or Paul McCartney.

He’s like the biggest freaking mascot ever. I wish Mascots could talk, that would be so funny!!! Everything Homer says is nothing short of stupid and hilarious.

Stopping for a mid day snack

Hot chocolate and Old Fashioned Funnel Cake topped with vanilla ice cream and drizzled with chocolate sauce!

Eeek! Sosososososooooooo good and I can’t get it anywhere else!!!

Funnel cakes are like waffles, but crispier (like big rice crispies!) and coated with lots of icing sugar :’)

The worst act at Universal Studios. The cast were awfully unfriendly (everyone else was super nice) and their performance was just really, really bad. Like cover-your-ears-bad.

What on earth was Universal Studios thinking when they hired them?! We walked out about 3 minutes into the performance. If I wanted to hear bad shameless singing, Youtube is good enough for me.

This was Sam’s favourite – the Revenge of the Mummy ride!!!

Unexpectedly fun but at the same time quite creepy actually, lots of rotten mummys and explosions with REAL fire (you can feel the rush of heat on your face whenever something goes BOOM!)

I love coasters where you can’t see the tracks and you don’t know what’s going to happen next - oh oh, better still if it’s really freaking dark and all you can see are special effects flashing around! Makes it 100 x more exhilarating ^_____^

Outside the attraction, they had people dressed up Egytian style so we had a pic taken with them and they were very creepy and gave weird stares and never talked (part of their roles) and if you make fun of them, they will GRAB YOUR HAIR and pull it without mercy, like what happened to me! T.T

A neat touch to the attraction, but I personally felt the “hostile” behaviour was a little overdone. Scared some kids away!

Pissed Sam off too, when the black dude pulled his hair so hard he went like “OUCCHHHH!”

The eyeliner looks good on you. The topless part looks great as well, but I’m really not quite sure about the hat, sweetie.

Saw this less scary and hotter egyptian angmoh thingy so I did a close up on him and he actually stared into my camera (or at me?) for a very long time, even though he was obviously “posing” for other peoples pictures :P

I’m not a mummy but you can be my daddy any time.

LOLOL I am so bad at coming up with pick up lines

Ending this post with their newest roller coaster called Rip, Ride, Rockit!”



The coaster is HUGE, and the whole thing’s music-themed so you can choose different genre of songs and tracks from specific artistes to be played during your coaster ride! How hot is that!!!!

They have R&B, pop, rock, everything!


The music would be blasting from speakers on your headrest and it would be so loud, you couldn’t hear the people behind you screaming or even yourself!

(images that are obviously not my style of photography / editing are all taken from google)

c

Crazy vertical uphill scale then a DEEEEEEEEEP drop!!!!

Omg I need my adrenaline fix NOW!

We purchased the coaster’s DVD, and even though the footage of us is really short, I don’t think I’d ever be able to see myself on a roller coaster on tape ever again, so here it is!!!

The video shows a lot of animation and graphics and POV riding, so if you just want to see our expressions only, fast forward to 1:03 and again at 1:30 and lastly at 2:09!!!

Wooohooo~ Here we go!!!

* * * JESS AND SAM RIDING RIP, RIDE, ROCKIT! * * *


HAHAHA 1:30!!!

I WILL SURVIVE!!!!!!!!!!
