The 8


The Constantly Dramatic One have been tagged by Quin. Actually I think I have been tagged with this before but I couldn't be arsed into doing it. Now I could. Mainly because I'm procrastinating from doing the slides for my presentation. And study. And clean my room. And yeah, okay. You get the point. Onwards!



8 Things I Am Passionate About


1) My family.
They irritate the hell out of half the time. My sister can be such a condescending bitch. My brother yell at me on the phone -on long distance phone call, no less - all the way from Chicago. My mom nags incessantly. My Dad calls me at 11 fucking pm just to tell me to get home "right now". 11 fucking PM people and I'm already in my early twenties. Like what the fuck? But yet I love them all the same and I will beat the living shit of anyone that messes with any one of them.


2) Maintaining my friendship with the friends I love and care for no matter how far away they are from me.
My highschool bestfriend is in Ukraine studying medic. My brother in Chicago. I have friends leaving for the States. I have people whom I care for dearly scattered all over the world. I am determined to never lose contact with them.



3) Performance arts.
- Interpretive dance, musicals, theatres, films, etc


4) Ghendut.
No seriously, Ghendut. My golden hamster whom my friends think is either a depressed dog or a teddy bear. Ghendut is a golden hamster you bitches.
** "Ghendut" means "tubby" in Malay.



5) Making sure the penguins do not go into extinction.
Penguins are the world's most adorable creatures but their numbers is declining every year because of global warming and the fact that those sea lion bastards eat them. The only easy solution here is to stop global warming all together and club the sea lions to death. You heard it here first.

Sea lion bastards!






6) Sunflowers!
As in the flower itself and the term of endearment I use for my friends and loved ones.


7) History and culture.
Especially the ones that involves my own culture. I solely believe that young people these days no longer care about culture or tradition and have turn their backs on them. It is up to us, the young adults, to preserve our culture, customs and traditions. Being modern is good but not so much that you would turn back on your own traditions. I am determined to be one of those people who would bring my culture, the Malay culture to the 21st century so that it would never be forgotten - no matter how modern or Westernized we become.


8) Standing up for myself.
As a child I was bullied and walked all over on. Never again.



8 Things I Want to do Before I Die


1) A fireman/marine/sailor/pilot/S.W.A.T/ any variation of a hot guy in uniform.

2) Travel alone. With no company whatsoever. Preferably to either one of my top travel destinations:
Mongolia or Tanzania. When I do this, and I will, hopefully I won't get kidnapped for human trafficking or get my organs harvested.

3) Hug an Emperor Penguin. No seriously, an Emperor Penguin. A real one.

4) Hit a nude beach.



5) Become an organ donor.

6) Be directly involve in a political revolution.


7) Spend one whole day in a sunflower field. I want to watch as the sunflowers follow the movement of the sun as it rises and sets on the same day.



8) Give a rousing speech to an audience of at least a thousand.


8 Things I Say Often

1) Seriously.
2) Bitch.
3) Like what the fuck?
4) I will smack that bitch until she/he bleeds.
5) Oh For the Love of God!
6) Sunflower!
7) Step on it you fucking asshole. I have places to be at.
8) This sucks donkey balls.


8 Books I've Recently Read

1) High Heels and Homicide (Kasey Michaels)

2) Diary of a Young Girl (Anne Frank)

3) Bapaku P. Ramlee (Nasir P. Ramlee) *Malay ***My father P.Ramlee


The late P.Ramlee. The greatest thing that had ever happened to the Malaysian movie industry.



4) Malaysian Politicians Say the Darndest Things (Amir Muhammad)

5) Life of Pi (Yann Martel)

6) 501 Must See Movies (Various Authors)

7) Schindler's List (Thomas Kenneally) - actually reading this one right now.

8) Agent Provocateur: Confessions. A collection of erotic fiction (Agent Provocateur)


8 Songs I Could Listen to Over and Over


1) You Can't Stop the Beat (from the musical Hairspray)

-just wanna get up and dance to this one. Each time.

2) No One Mourns the Wicked (from the musical Wicked)

- everytime I hear this, my heart skips a beat. It's like one of the most powerful songs I have ever heard. Plus it bring me back to that time when I watched the musical on Broadway in Chicago.


3) Kau Ilhamku (Man Bai) *Malay ***You are my inspiration

- everytime I got it bad for somebody, I can hear this song playing in my head. True story.

4) Ketipang Payung (from the classic "Nujum Pak Belalang") *Malay

- one of the best Malay songs ever, with ethnic beats and dance move. Before Rihanna, this lady was already singing about umbrellas (payung in Malay). I remember how I used to dance around to this song when I was kid, complete with my own umbrella. Check out the video!






5) Damelo (Juanes) **Spanish

- Juanes is a sexy beast who makes equally sexy music. Nuff' said.

6) Bitch (Meredith Brooks)

-"I'm a bitch, I'm a lover, I'm a child, I'm a mother, I'm a sinner, I'm a saint, I do not feel ashamed. I'm your hell, I'm you dream, I'm nothing in between. You know you wouldn't want it any other way."

7) Take Me of Leave Me (from the musical RENT)

- don't you love it when lesbians sing while arguing?

8) That's Amore (Dean Martin)

- timeless.


8 Things That Attract Me to My Best Friends

1) Honesty.

2) They have a certain aspect of them that I respect. I can only be with people whom I respect. So yes, I respect my friends. Every one of them.

3) The ability to bullshit creatively. Very important.

4) They are happy with themselves. Meaning they do not try to be anyone else but themselves.

5) Supportive.

6) Clever and witty.

7) Not desperate or/and conceited. I loathe desperate and conceited people.

8) A bunch of weirdos just like the Constantly Dramatic One.






I'm tagging Kerp. Coz he's a tag-whore.

constant drama said...

Quin:

Performing arts MUST be kept alive. Completely agreed!!

And I did present on Schindler for my commerative speech. Its all good =)

Sunflowers and a hot man in uniform? Oh what could me better.....

Technodoll:

Well, for number 5 I must like sign the agreement BEFORE I die then they can have organs after I'm dead. And you're right, if I do get kidnapped....it does kinda mess up the plan a little bit....hhmmmm....

Oh well. Let's hope that I dont get kidnapped then =p

Tine:

You sang it for school choir?! That's soooo cool. I love the part where she goes "Hoiii!" with the shoulders and all. =)

Just Me:

Yes. Each one. Once.

Once with a fireman.
Once with a marine.
Once with a pilot.
Once with a S.W.A.T

Evie:

Item one is a MUST. A MUST.

And yes, we must always threaten humanity with bodily harm on a daily basis. It makes the world a much better world to live in.

Valerie said...

I was bullied and walked over as a child, too. Now I think I overcompensate by being a bit too defensive.

Elisabeth said...

Great post! I love these little snippets into the mind of the Constantly Dramatic One!

faye said...

I'm so glad you love P Ramlee too....
I thought I was the only 'young adult' that would treasure a night of nasi lemak bungkus and Labu Labi. :)

I bought all his songs...but cassette la...damn jurassic.

The Stiletto Effect said...

I find this game very funny :) I've been tagged twice but I only had to say 8 random things about me and nothing more :)

elfiejane said...

Nude beaches arent that much fun. We have tons of them in Europe and 90% of the peopl who go there are OLDIES

so it's basically saggy boobs, saggy peens and saggy skin everyyywhereeeeee

constant drama said...

Pink Rosies:

P.Ramlee was hot. Fact.
He is also dead. Fact.
So the fact that we are collectively agreeing that he was indeed hot, is in fact, kinda disturbing =p

Valerie:

I have inner confidence now. I dont overcompensae but the experience did thought me to have confidence in myself and to always stand up for number 1 - moi.

Elisabeth:

Little snippets into my mind? Ohkay....I am now heading to paranoid city.

Like seriously.

constant drama said...

Faye:

I wanted to write "adults" and I realised that makes me sound old...so I wrote young adults because bitches, I am young. (The Constantly Dramatic One has age-related issues that is yet unresolved at this point).

Wow. Casettes? What are those =p
I have it on CD. Heh.

Stilletto Effect:

WOW!! What are you doing on my blog?!! I read your blog religiously. You are awesome. Thank you for being so stylish, you give hope to style-challanged individuals like me.

And thanks for dropping by!

Elfie:

You been there? =p

Okay I believe you. I guess I have to create my own nude beach. On my nude beach there will only be me...and a nude Clive.

Best goddamn nude beach ever.
