My Journey on Becoming A Playgirlz

p/s: It is not the promiscous playgirl, it is the After School fandom name. Better clarify first before my poor mom suffer from a heart attack thinking her daughter is the actual playgirl ;p

I was watching a rerun episode of Inkigayo yesterday where After School still promoting Flashback. And I still have the same goosebumps attack as when I first watched their comeback. And then, I feel proud calling myself a Playgirlz.I feel proud watching After School performing on stage.

I found myself reminiscing the moments when I acknowledge their existence, taking interest in them, memorizing all members, humming to their songs, called myself a fan and finally choosing my bias.

2010: Getting To Know After School

1. I was introduced to k-pop.
2. Crazy over Super Junior.

I was watching Star Dance Battle at that time and was rooting for Suju. While waiting, I watched others. That time, AS was against SNSD. I still remember how amazed I am watching their movements and started shooting lotsa questions to my friends who are much more familiar with k-pop. Trust me, I only knew Suju, SNSD and DBSK. T____T

Since AS is not as famous as SNSD, my friends knew so little about them except Uee since she is once part of WGM. 

Watching the dance, I went like "OMG OMG OMG!!"..They are really good, creative and powerful especially Kahi..She is

Then, unsatisfied, I look for more After School dance videos. Major salute to them, they were really good in dancing. And I started thinking, why don't I check their songs and videos too.. 
Here, at this very moment, I started my journey alone as most of my k-pop loving friends are not interested in knowing After School. 

Next, I've checked their latest single at that time, Bang!. Honestly, Bang! does not leave any significant affect on me. The song was so-so. Not something that I would listen again. But, I kept coming back watching their MV, because... 
1. I really really like the girls' images
2.Their dance routine (because I keep checking their live perf)
2. UEE (yes, at that time I think UEE is the most beautiful)
3. Bekah alluring gaze (I wrote about it here)
4. Raina's adlib

The journey continues when I decided to know and memorize every members and I've started digging back their past songs and MV. Here, where I started to fall for Jungah.

2011: From Interested to Love and Meeting a fellow Playgirlz

Here, I've declared myself a Playgirlz as keep updating myself with their latest news, comebacks, variety shows and pictures. In other word, I've become obsessed. I started to forget Suju. :(

 I started blogging about my love to them and here, my fellow Playgirlz and blogging buddy, Vee left a comment on my chatbox "All hail After School".. I've become super excited!! Yes! A living Playgirlz!! Trust me, being at my place, knowing another Playgirlz/Boyz, will excites you.

But things started to look bleak when they announced that Bekah is graduating. At first, I 'thought' I can accept this graduation and admision concept. But when one of your bias is 'actually' graduating, it hurts so much that I thought:
1. Am I going to remain being a Playgirlz?
2. How am I to accept other rapper except Bekah?

I even feel a wee bit down when I heard Bekah's part was being taken over by others. I felt empty, really. As if something is missing, not right.
But because I'm still crazy over Jungah and the rest of the girls because they are extremely gorgeous, I still jumping up and down everytime I watched their performances and videos!! Their dances excite me. Their songs haunting my ears. I keep humming them.

2012: I'm a TRUE Playgirlz

Again, I received another bad news. Kahi is graduating. AS dancing backbone is graduating! And she is my 3rd bias. What will become of After School? One of the reason After School is known is because of the Kahi's dancing abilities. And of course UEE.. Is this the end for After School? 

I pray very hard that it is not. They are talented and they deserve the limelight. Here I've decided, with or without Kahi, I will become hardcore Playgirlz. I will support them.
Surprisingly, I was super duper impressed with After School's comeback and I did not miss Kahi one bit. I even despise those who laments "It is not the same without Kahi" bla bla bla.. Get over it! Love AS as one. Kahi is my blogging buddy main bias and she is not affected that much. She even managed to find herself a new bias (E-Young).
I know, one day, Jungah will graduated, because deep in my heart, I want her to have a solo career as it is her dream to become a performer. That's why you never see her pursuing other activities like acting. 

And I've started going gaga over new AS member, Kaeun. Vee is right, it does helps when you have more than one bias.

Here also, I've started rooting for Orange Caramel. Usually, I despise cutesy concept, but because of AS, I've started liking OC

This is what I meant when I say I love AS as one. Cutesy or sexy, I heart them. Every single member.
And I'm never bored with Flashback. :)

Be Careful 2

Remember my story here??
Well two days ago, my colleague, alone in the shop during her morning shift, was a bit unlucky as she lost her Xperia phone.
That time she was attending an innocent male customer when a Malay male came in and wandered around and went out. The very next minute, she found that the phone that she had partially hidden between the books, has been taken. In just a mere minute!!
Angry, she called her phone almost immediately and that fool actually answered the call.
I think he was having trouble unlocking the phone at that time but never cross my mind that he will actually answered the call.
My colleague treaten him and asked him to bring back the phone to her right now.
Well, of course he is not bringing back the phone back. In 5 minutes, the phone was shut off. I figured he already found the way.
So the lesson here:
1. Please please please be careful, this may sound like a small matter but what if this involve something bigger like your life? Better safe than sorry. Better be paranoid than 'terkena'..
2.If you own an android phone, better download an app that will detect the location of your phone through the net.
Just for the sake of sharing.

Review: SKARF Oh! Dance

I was watching Inkigayo when this group made their debut with Oh! Dance... The first thing I noticed are their awkwardness and lack of strong vocal. But the song is so light and fresh, I can't get them out of my head. I keep humming the "oh oh ooooh oh" part. And I'm kinda hooked with their simple choreography. And I googled their MV! Haha.. Not a strong debut but the song is catchy enough to catch my attention. And both Singaporeans catched my eyes too..Oh, I don't like their cutesy image. :(

Be Careful~

Ini kisah benar untuk dikongsi... 
Hari ni aku nyaris-nyaris kena rompak.
 Dalam pukul 12 tengahari macam tu, aku sedang brunch. Yela lapa gile kot, takleh tahan.
Time tu aku tengah charge handphone aku.
Walaupun bukan iPhone, tapi kalau jual, memang ada harga la..
Salah aku, charge hp, letak dalam laci terbuka.
Then, ada satu lelaki cina masuk (bukan racist ok), tanya macam-macam soalan tentang product. Dia try la, itu la, ini la.
Dengan kata lain, dia nak bagi aku busy.
Allah swt nak tolong, aku terbagi tumpah cream sangat banyak atas tangan dia.
Dah krim tumpah, mesti la kena bagi tisu lap kan? Takkan nak suruh dia jilat sampai licin? Ingat tu whip cream ke?

Aku toleh je nak ambil tisu, tengok ada sorang lagi lelaki cina ada belakang kaunter, lagi sikit je nak sampai ke cash drawer. 
*buat apa belakang kaunter tu cik abang? Nak curi makan nasi ai kerrr?*
Dia terkejut tengok aku tetiba toleh, terus dia berpura-pura tanya tentang produk and cepat-cepat keluar kedai.
Aku tak berani nak tunjuk hebat sangat soal- siasat, bajet Sarjan Misai, sebab aku sorang je yang jaga kedai. 
Karang dia panggil geng-geng serang hendap masa kat parking kereta, naya.
Handphone aku, dari cover terbuka, dah tertutup.
Aku pasti cover tu terbuka sebab aku tengah main game *ok kantoi main game masa kerja* sambil makan masa cina tu masuk.
Maknanya kalau aku terleka seminit lagi, memang lesap la handphone aku.
And kalau aku terleka 5 minit lagi, mungkin duit kaunter pun akan hilang.
Cina  yang first tadi, terus jadi kurang friendly, tapi still tanya soalan lagi, (mungkin nak cuba lagi), tapi mata aku dah macam salamander, sikit- sikit tengok kaunter.
Dia give up, and keluar.

Mungkin tak ramai yang akan duduk di situasi yang sama macam aku, tapi pengajaran di sini, jangan terleka dan sentiasa berjaga-jaga. Jangan tertipu dengan penampilan orang lain. Serious, cina kedua yang masuk dalam kaunter rupa macam bapak mithali.

Just be carefull guys....
