MK’s finally back! [^_^]

*enjoying last hours of my weekend*

*enjoying last hours of my weekend*

Konbanwa minna-san! MK has returned to the scene of the… blog… [.___.]{?]

I know, I know. Minna-san does not need to remind MK of her short-coming these last couple weeks. I’m really sorry for allowing the blog to go unupdated for such a long time. Please accept MK’s apology [u.u]{Gomenassai).

Moving on…

How is minna-san? MK has really missed minna-san a great deal during her abscense [u_u]. It’s even hard for me to believe, but this whole time, I was pretty much absent from the whole of the internet [@_@]. And that’s something that’s completely foreign to MK who is used to being online as often as possible.

Anyway, at the moment, I’m really just enjoying the few days off of school that we have. Right now I know that the next couple days will be filled with “festivities” and celebrations and all of those stuffs. But I don’t know for certain whether that will prove to be a good thing. Every year we endure these festivities and some years are more fun than others, but in general they’re quite the hassle for MK and her family [.___.]. I don’t think this is how everyone here on MK’s island feels about these festive days. For most of the island, it’s simply a choice of whether to participate or not. But MK’s family doesn’t have that choice [-__-].

Anyway, enough about MK’s issues. I’ve just downloaded Skype last night. A friend recommended it (yet again) so I decided to check it out and see what all the commotion is about. So, right now I only have a single skype contact, and he hasn’t even responded to my invitation yet, so I can’t even talk to him [-_-]. MK is so alone and has no one to share her first skype moment with.

Plus! MK’s laptop is so old-fashion that it doesn’t have an internal mic or internal webcam \(>‘.’<)/ <–{MK’s an angry kitty cat)! How lame! Fortunately MK has both an external microphone and an external webcam, but the problem is, the webcam that I have needs an installation CD to be used. And MK has no clue where that CD is! [u_u] <—*defeated*

So it seems MK’s only chance of ever using Skype to it’s full potential is if she buys a new webcam (what a waste). But I’m not going to be too hasty. In order to save what I can, I’m going to make sure that this webcam that I have here absolutely cannot possible work without the installation disk…

(Wow, this is probably MK’s most boring post ever! Hmmm, what can I do to spruce things up? [.__.]{…])

Well, last night, a friend of MK’s shared with her a very nice video (it’s actually only about the song though) which she enjoyed quite a lot. So…

MK WILL SHARE IT WITH MINNA-SAN! \[^v^]/|||<—-*trying desperately not to lose minna-san’s attention*

It’s “FYI by Utada Hikaru”

How did you enjoy the song? I didn’t love it at first. But I quite like it now. I personally think the beat and the instrumental are really cool.

I own a couple of Utada Hikaru’s songs (Simple and Clean + Sanctuary from Kingdom Hearts). FYI is definitely a different style than she did with those two. And those are really the only songs I’ve heard from her, so it was a bit strange hearing her voice with this genre of music. But once I got used to it, I quite liked this song.

OK, it is unfortunately time for MK to leave… I’m beginning to get very hungry.

MK promises to post again as soon as possible. And seeing that we don’t have school and hardly have any homework, that will probably be soon.

Ja~ne! [^_^]v

PS. Apologies for this post being so incredibly boring…[u_u]

Testing Windows Live Writer

Oyasumi minna-san!

MK is feeling rather guilty for not having posted in such a long period of time [u_u]. Gomenasai minna-san! I’ve been quite busy, and to be truthful, I haven’t found anything exciting enough to share with minna-san in a while.

Well, MK will try to get a chance do a real post again in the near future.

But at the moment, I’m trying out this new program called “Windows Live Writer” some might have heard of it, or even use it.

So, I’m just trying it out.

But I must go now. [-__-]

Bye Bye – Ja~ne!

MK wants a Mac



Konbanwa minna-san

MK‘s been a PC user for all of her life. I’ve never owned a Mac of my own. My two siblings have Macs, but I’ve never had one. So… today I’ve been looking around for more details about the different macbooks out there.

OK, first of all, let me show minna-san what my current laptop looks like:

Sony Vaio VGN-NR160E

I like my computer a lot. I’ve had it for about a year and change now and it still looks just as good as new. The only problem is that the mouse keys have gotten a little weak and irresponsive (not sure if that’s a word), so you have to pound on ’em real hard for them to work.

Uh oh! MK must go now! Sorry for the abrupt ending to this post. MK will continue to tell minna-san about her thought about her future laptop choice later.

Bye Bye!




Oyasumi minna-san!

Recently, MK was in her parents’ room when she stumbled upon a very farmiliar-looking CD. I recognized it as an old dance CD my sister always used to blast really loudly in the house when my parents weren’t home. I think I was about 6 years old around that time. Since it’s that old, it was really badly scratched and I was pretty sure it wouldn’t work. Still, I popped it into my CD drive (since normally computers do much better with scratched CD than CD players).

It actually seemed to be working, so I quickly zipped through the songs for anything that sounded farmiliar. In particular, I was actually looking for this one song that I used to really like. I couldn’t remember much about the song other than that it was a techno-ish song with a female singer. In the end I ended up finding three songs that I remember.  I ripped them to my PC. Two of them, I don’t think, are very popular, but the third one is a very well-known song: It’s called September ’99 by Earth, Wind and Fire.

Oh! Also, MK found a really cool charm for her Palm Centro today! [^_^] It actually came attached to this bottle of perfume that I got from my dad. The funny thing is, I hate getting perfume, and this one costed my dad like $60, but instead of being all excited about the perfume itself, MK was very happy with her little charm which fit perfectly on her phone. [¯v¯] Here’s MK’s new charm:↓

Anyway, it’s now time for MK to head to bed… Plus my mom’s begging me to use my laptop for something [u__u].

Oh! Gomenassai (Sorry) for taking so long to update my blog. This week has been a real blur. Not sure where all my time went. [>_<]{Sorry)
