It's FRiDAY

Well, it's officially my last day in Freeform today. I tried to hold myself from tearing up but from inside, I was tearing up. I even took myself to the toilet and just try to take a breather. It's finally the last day...



Last day of me waking up at 9am and ended up arriving in office at 10.30am onwards.
Last day I'll ever stepped into the lift, pressing level 6, keying-in the security lock to enter the office, signing-in as "TRAiNEE", head to my desk and switch on my yellow Dell laptop and plug-in my mouse and external hard disk.
Last day hugging my lime green pillow while doing my work.
Last day changing the water in the pantry.
Last day going out lunch with Freeformers at Tappers, The Bee, One Chef, Jaya Noodle House, Nando's, Marufuku Udon House, Uncle Sam's, Old Town, opposite road's mamak or Jackson's Burger at Section 14. Last day going to Cold Storage at 4pm with some of the Freeformers.


I don't know if I'll ever see these people again but I do hope we will CROSS-PATHS again. Thank you for having me in your world and showing me the tiny world of Freeform. To Karen, Priya, Joshua Desmond, Sueann, Joshua Chay, Minky, Shantee, Ilani, Gwen, Helmelia, Niki, Emily, Mita and everyone else in Freeform, FANK YOU so muchy!


Mita now has my lime green pillow :) Take care of my 'legacy'.

Freeformer #3 - Shantee
She's got big, big and I mean really big eyes! Everytime she introduce herself as Shantee, people go "huh? Shantee?" Make no mistake, she's a CiNA from Penang :) Sometimes it's Shantee, sometimes it's Shanti but most of the time it's just Shaquantay (yeah, she's GHETTO like that!).
Shantee Likes: Peace sign for her accessories. Her boyfriend who picks her up all the time. Minky and Karen. Oh, and her lips go M-shape when camera clicks :)

Freeformer #4 - Minky
Sometimes known as Minkeh. She's hyper, always happy on the outside and is bound to get a hold of your Blackberry and Facebook when you are not aware. She hails from UK so she knows a limited amount of Malay words such as her infamous "TAK MAU" and lately she's been doing the "lah and aiyo" alot. Returning to UK as an Ah Lian?

Joshua Desmond Likes: ALL OF US! His girlfriend and erm, flirting? Hmm, iDK. 1 thing's for sure, he likes ALL of US!

Freeformer #6 Priya
Priya is my supervisor and she's got this face that wants you to say "Yo, Priya" HAHA! You couldn't asked for a better supervisor other than OMG Priya! Yeah, you will laugh each time she says OMG. Priya is also stressed daily because she got exams and Minky to deal with. Haha! Oh and Karen, haha.
Priya Likes: KFC, egg tarts and Gwen. She likes to say OMG also.

Freeformer #7- Gwen
She's old and new because she's been in Freeform but left and now she's back. She's got a very cute name behind that Gwen and it's not Gwendolyn! Very detailed in her work like everyone else here and she's mean and nice like Karen!

Freeformer #12 - Ilani
She used to be in-charge of the Tongue In Chic store until she decides to leave. She's full of this weird type of personality but it's cool. We always see her in the pantry round 4pm and if you stare at her, she'll do a Beyonce or some other dance.
Ilani Likes: The Tongue In Chic Store and bright colors. And of course, her Kelisa.

iLoveFreeform.com

Week 11. It's supposed to last till Week 10 only but I extended me training and it's worth while because being where I am for my training, it's F-U-N! Have you ever come across people who works and yet are fun? Serious but fun? Oh, don't forget the major FRiENDLY-ness with these people. Although coming to KL burnt a very big hole in my pocket, I am glad I came because it's supposed to go this way! Knowing these people is the greatest in life so far. It's an experience that I wouldn't trade for anything. Lots of people may complain bout their company or say they won't miss their intern company but I'll miss mine a whole LOT! I've still got life to settle in Penang but I know I'll always have a part of life here in Petaling Jaya where Freeformers are. Freeformers are stylish, cool, fun and everything unique. Oh! and when Freeformers come out to play, you wouldn't want to NOT be part of them because they are such a fun bunch! Everyone has their own style and unique. You don't settle for the ordinary joe or plain jane look here in Freeform. Everyone's certainly has their own thing called style. I am proud to call myself a Freeformer although it's only for 3months.











xoxo Hosef with LOVE...

Your Top10

I'm just plain bored and was browsing through Billboard.com and came across the current Top 10 songs in Billboard. Kinda like the current chart and I have to admit because I'm bias. I like these types of song and so the Top 10 are...*drum roll*

10. Katy Perry - Firework
This is one of the songs from Katy Perry which everyone sings to, has such meaningful lyrics and yet people make fun of it simply because Katy decides to shoot fireworks from her boobs, there's even fireworks from the crotch. It resolved in tons and tons of spoofs/parody. Two of the ones that caught my attention was from The Key Of Awesome and Sherry Vine.




9. Enrique Iglesias - Tonight (I'm Fuckin' You/I'm Lovin' You)
Whichever way you wanna call. Enrique's song has always ooze sex appeal but this song? I don't know...it just feels rude. I still like Takin' Back My Love and Do You Know(The Ping Pong Song). It's like running around saying to his fans that he's going to F them tonight. Well, at least the song rhymes when he goes "Here's the situation, been to every nation. Nobody can make me feel the way that you do. You know my motivation, given my reputation. Please excuse me I don't mean to be rude but tonight I'm fuckin' you". Well, he gets away with it because he's YUM-O. Here's a parody from DizzyCityNation. The guy in white is YUM-O too :)

8. Katy Perry feat. Kanye West - E.T
Katy Perry is in the chart again and this time, no fireworks from her boobs. Just her singing about her fascination with aliens. Russel Brand not good enough? Who knows. I would have love the song if it's not for "Mr. Ego Who Must Win Every Award If Not, They Are Racist" Kanye West. It's pretty catchy and fun especially the chorus part but there shouldn't be no Kanye inside. Maybe Katy wants an alien to abduct her and she'll give birth to her own little monsters so she can be called Mother Monster? Parody courtesy of Hit Single SPOOFS :)


7. Ke$ha - Blow
Ke-Dollar Sign-ha's latest single, Blow. Radio says it has a controversial title. I don't think so. It's not like she's singing blowjob or anything. Not her best hit but it's ohkay lar. I'm sure everybody is still hooked on the infectious Tik Tok and BlahBlahBlah. Who cares if she uses auto-tune. I don't. It's a different form of music and it's pretty refreshing I would say. It's fun, sexy and slutty! I wouldn't say much about the video though. There's unicorns, rainbow colored blood and that guy from Dawson's Creek...no worries, no mythological creatures were harm in the making :) Parodies courtesy of KeepTheHeat and nayders07.

6. Bruno Mars - Grenade
The artist with the CHEESiEST song lyrics of all time. It's not that I don't like him but he's stating the impossible and something nobody would do. "I'll catch a grenade for ya, throw my hands on the plane for ya. I'd jump infront of the train for ya". Ya, right. If a grenade comes infront of you and your girl, you would spear her away from it, not catch it. There's also another single where he sings "I do, I do, I do. I'd marry you". Cheesy much? Go away Bruno! Here's a parody from Key Of Awesome :)



5. Jennifer Lopez feat. Pitbull - On The Floor
J.Lo is back with a little injection of Pitbull. I saw an article somewhere that this song is supposedly a Chinese song and J.Lo just did a cover on it. I've took a listen to it and its fun for clubbing and dancing but it's not something to sing-along. Still on the fence with this one. Guess the song's too fast for a parody? Couldn't find one or maybe it's in the process...well, J.Lo still has it in here and I say GO J.Lo even though I'm not a big fan of this single.



4. P!nk - Fuckin' Perfect
Great song, meaningful and great lyrics. Something different for the youth out there. The song gives one a sense of belonging and helps build confidence. P!nk, yes she changed her spelling from Pink to exclamation mark as the "i". P!nk may not look the part of a role model but she is in terms of her songs. Most of her songs has the angry feel to it but that's just like everyone of us. We all have been through the teenage angst and I've always been able to relate to P!nk's songs. Who would do a parody of this song? No wayyyyy :)


3. Rihanna - S&M
It's RiRi with her sexually overdosed song "appropriately" titled, S&M. For those of you who don't know, S&M stands for Slave & Master. A form of sexual fetish that Rihanna seems to like. I don't have anything against Rihanna but don't you think Rihanna is getting a little over-sexed up? She's practically singing about sex in all her songs. Soon after she sings about it, she "forgets her name". LOL...but I do like her look in S&M's music video though...Here's a parody courtesy of DxDutch.



2. Cee Lo Green - Fuck You/Forget You
The usual case with any song with the F word is bound to be changed to something else that is "appropriately clean". I love, love, love, LOVE this song! Not only it so relate-able, it's something so common nowadays. I am having this on my iTunes as I'm typing this post. We've all been through the situation where we lost someone we really loved and thought loved us back but the only obstacle was because of the ka-ching. So, here's to these people! Forget you! Cause being in love shouldn't be expensive. Love both this version and Gwyneth Paltrow's version in GLEE. One hell of a parody! Check this out! Courtesy of DeStorm :)

1. Lady Gaga - Born This Way
We all know this song would top the chart and it did. Only expect the best from Lady Gaga. The main reason why I love this song because it's an anthem for the queers and it sends such a strong message across. I wouldn't say so about the music video though. Personally, there's no connection between the song and the music video but with lyrics like "No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, trans-gendered life. I'm on the right track, baby I was born to survive", what's not to love with this song. A song that is an unofficial anthem, with a strong sense of social responsibility. But be prepared for a very long-winded MV. Here's a parody from Ms. Sherry Vine herself and gregsgarcini :)

Given The BOHEMiAN Rhapsody

What has Kay-Elle done to me? In terms of thinking, the way I talk and also fashion wise. Fashion changed quite big! Been seeing tons of style instead of Penang having one style only, Lala. There are lalas here but there's also different kind of style and fashion. To date, my favourite would be the Vintage look and the Boho Look. For those who goes "Boho what?" Boho means Bohemian. It's a heavy influence of the 70s hippie style. Often linked to the Peace sign.There are lots of BLOGSHOP sells boho and vintage items for ladies but NOT ENOUGH of them in the market for men :(

For the ladies who wanna try Vintage look, you can head to:


As for accessories, try:


These 2 blogshops are my favourite for accessories so far...


Sorry guys but I couldn't find any blogshop selling boho or vintage stuff for men. I do wish they have though. I only found lots of Korea/Japanese/Taiwan blogshops but if you wanna try some Boho look, here are some tips :)

Boho style, also known as Bohemian and Boho-chic, is a fashion trend which borrows heavily from Hippie-chic undertones, vintage finds, and earthy charm to promote self-expression and a unique twist. It can be a difficult style for men to pull off, without looking like vagabonds or starving artists. But just as Hippie-chic is unisex, and vintage clothing stores cater to both male and female shoppers, Boho fashion can work for men just as much as for women. Often, Boho style has a romantic element incorporated for men's designs; tapping into your inner Casanova can work wonders with the freedom afforded by Boho style.
 Here are 5 tips of making this fashion trend work for you:
  1. Decide on which Boho style element you want to stress, an especially essential step for men even more than female enthusiasts of this trend. Boho style offers limitless creativity, but each outfit should be limited to one or two types of Boho; vintage, hippie-chic, earthy, romantic, etc. Combining a woven organic vest, tie-dyed bell-bottoms, a fedora and distressed tie would overwhelm any man trying to dress Boho.
  2. Take caution with distressed items. It is a very thin line between Boho—and Hobo. While buying designer jeans systematically engineered to look well past their prime, dressing in the Boho style gives every guy an opportunity to keep those comfortable old sandals, torn-knee jeans, and faded Superhero T-shirt. These personalized elements are actually the key to wearing Boho style believably. Argue that the next time your date challenges the longevity of your most comfortable clothes!
  3. Think: Rebel Actor. Johnny Depp, Paul Newman, James Dean—all celebrity men who have embodied the Boho style and attitude, possibly without even trying. Depp often has a hippie-chic undertone in his wardrobe on movie sets. Is this a reflection of his personal tastes or does the wardrobe automatically associate the free-thinking, humble, handsome rebel with Bohemia?
  4. Boho lives in the details. The tiniest of embroidery, the subtlest seashell cufflinks, the most faded and unusual socks—these unexpected details are a feast for the eyes, and provided limitless potential to let your personality shine through your clothing and accessories. If the 1940’s are your favorite era, try incorporating elements of that period of fashion into your wardrobe. Part of the freedom of Boho is deciding which fashion rules apply to you.
  5. Understand the Boho Attitude. Boho style enthusiasts argue that Bohemian fashion is 20% clothing, 30% attitude and 50% freedom of thought. Men are taught from childhood to “be their own man.” Perhaps Boho style is the perfect opportunity for modern men to be creative and interested in fashion without compromising their individuality.



This space here was supposed to be about Vintage look and Boho look for ladies but then again, there's so much you can get on these looks for the ladies via Tongue In Chic @http://tonguechic.com so check it out over there :) Meanwhile, these are some look that's really in right now :)

Neely The Anthony :)

Was in Sungai Wang doing some minor shopping. Was in RedBox earlier in the morning for a K-session which I had been missing out for 3months! I did Cee Lo Green's Forget You for 5 times! Can you believe it? Sang Anthony Neely's Sorry That I Loved You 3times and was told he's going to be in Sungai Wang at about 7.30pm. Haha, i was in a blur because my friends kept saying Nee An Dong coming and I was like 'who is that lar"? Then she told me, I sang one of his songs just now and light bulb suddenly appear, Anthony Neely! Haha...I'm not big with the whole fans thing but all the little girls...OHMGEE, signs, cakes, certificate and such. GG.com. I like Neely just for that one song because it's very meaningful to me.

Don't BECOME Like This!

Here's something that happened last week. As most people know, I'm interning in Freeform and as intern, you do everything given but that's not the case in Freeform. In Freeform, you are free. Work is fun and it's not a type of job where you kept looking at the clock wondering what time you'll be done. Now, there's this intern who goes by the name Tristan. He lives in his imaginary world, I supposed because he thinks he's the best. I don't have any major issues with him other than his sense of style but that took a turn after he publicly announced on his Facebook wall that he'll be terminating his internship and I quote...

"Terminating my internship in KLue because did not achieved intended purpose. Don't like the new direction that the website is going. Guess I'll move on to greener pasture and focus on my project".

Okay, first of all, be grateful that KLue accepted you. Don't go posting, complaining about your training in social media. There's a reason why it's called social media, duh?! Second, be honest. If you're going to post this, say it to your superior your reasons, don't bullshit infront and bullshit behind. And next time when you do work, please dress appropriately. Wearing 'pasar malam' shorts doesn't show respect to your colleague nor the place you work at. Slippers? Are you kidding me? If it were your birthday, I'd get you a mirror. But then again, why would I wanna waste a single cent on someone like you? Next, learn Photoshop or Photoscape for God's sake! You can't even resize pictures properly without any distortion and you wanna act like you're so good? Even if you want to drag your pictures, press Shift while draggin. I don't want to clean up your mess one after another.

There was also a comment from him which he says he is interested in Tony Phua because he's going into the same line as Tony but could care less about Deborah Henry because she's not worth his time. Erm, you think they give a shit bout you? LOL, wake up kiddo. You signed an agreement, don't go round posting bout what you're doing in the company, what tasks you're given, where you're going and such. Have some work ethics please. Gosh...I can deal with ugly people but ugly people with no brains, no common sense? I can't...

M.i.A NO MORE

Yeap, I've been M.i.A recently in this blog. Nothing much to say because there isn't anything to hyped about but I'm back! Back, better, bitchier than ever! LOL, is that good? Don't know...

BORN THiS WAY but Doesn't FLOW THAT WAY

video

Little monsters, Mother Monster has arrived. That's what Gaga call herself these days. She's now Mother Monster just like I'm Mother Bitch. When the clock tik-tok into 12am yesterday, everyone's eyes was focused on YouTube because it was the premiere of Lady Gaga a.k.a Mother Monster's Born This Way music video.

Like everyone little monsters, I was excited with the new video but it was a major disappointment compared to what Gaga had done previously. I always count on Gaga to have a story out of her song and a music video to go with it. Listen to Telephone, Bad Romance and her other hits, they have a story within the song and the music video. Born This Way tells of a beautiful story in the lyrics but...the music video is just straying off the path. It's like Alien Vs. Predator and Gaga is Mother Alien =.= I would say her performance in the Grammy looks better than the music video. Yes, we all know that Gaga likes to have a mini-story within her music video so they normally span till about 7-10minutes but this one has no meaning. It's just Gaga giving birth to...more Gaga. I myself, a Gaga fan and for me to blogging bout this, it's sad. C'mon Gaga, you can do better. It's not bad, it's just irrelevant.
