Baking pies & waking dead

How I've missed writing here. And now because I'm (un)officially on holiday, I can finally rant, spam and review practically anything I want on this blog without having the annoying "You-know-you-should-be-doing-your-work-right-now" voice tugging inside my head.

So, where should I start?

Pushing Daisies Season 2.

I'm back to being happy again =D

A quickie about Pushing Daisies : A story about Ned the pie maker who has a gift. He could touch dead things and bring them back to life. He uses this gift to help solve crime/forensic cases. Think C.S.I minus the always grim and sullen mood. There's 2 simple catch to his ability though. Keep the dead thing alive for more than a minute and something else would die in its place (to keep the balance of life, I presume). And touch a dead thing twice, it dies again. This time, forever. A humourly morbid twist for an otherwise another average American TV show. Anyway, one day Ned brought back Chuck a.k.a Charlotte, his childhood sweetheart from the dead but he can't love or touch Chuck the way a typical guy loves his girl. One touch is all it takes to send Chuck back 6 feet under. Adorable kan, the premise of the story?

What do I like about Pushing Daisies anyway? Hmm...I like how the narrator begins each and every episode with "It's been ** years, ** months, ** days and ** hours..." and ends with "The facts were these...". I like how Lee Pace plays Ned in a bashful, innocent-like manner so perfect to a T. I like the dresses that Chuck wore. Basically, everything that could make me happy is in that show. There's quirk, colour (each episode is literally colourful. Like a children's storybook come to life), daisies (it's my only favourite flower) and pies. Absolutely, visually delicious pies that are to die for. Blueberry, kiwi, lemon...all pies imaginable are in the show. It's sad though they discontinued the series after only 2 seasons. I think it's one of the original series available on TV. If you like the works of Tim Burton, I think you'd like this show.

The many styles of Chuck

You have got to love those red Mary Janes ;p

Another pretty dress.

*Hint to Amal : Bile nk makan lemon meringue pie ni??*

Kathleen Kelly (from You've Got Mail) is my all time favourite female character. The one thing she and I have in common is she likes daisies too. "Daisies are the friendliest flower". Just a random fact I felt like writing. ; )

Daisies my mom bought for me from when we went to Cameron. Cantik kan?? LOL!

Holidays are usually the time of the year where I catch up on all TV shows I've missed. Those in queue include True Blood S2, Castle, Supernatural S4, Criminal Minds and The Amazing Race S15. (I'm soo hogging the telly)
