- My cake for my birthday last week! Yet again, sorry for the crap quality posting.. I can't help it if my camera is only 8mp and full stuffed up with resolutions! :D Okay. So I basically dont wanna go spamming you all with Cake photos. LOL, so I found like 2 good quality (kinda) pictures which kinda show it. it was a really nice cake. Omnomnom. :D
- Theres like one slice left in the fridge. LOL. I'll sell it to the highest bidder on Ebay or something! ahaha. :D Its was very yum. :9
- Okay, I know my packing really sucks and it's all compact, and that was before I fitted all my clothes in there. LOL. So I wont post those pictures cuz those ones are just.. embarrassing. LOL. Anyways. I need help. Well, chortle chortle chortle, yes Eugene you do need help. But thats besides the point; which bag should I take for like hand carry around HK. I have either my CR bag, which is kinda my tutor bag, or my stussy bag which like nearly all of you have seen. But like the Stussy bag is like kinda really nice, and it's not really that safe in HK if you bring a backpack.. and Country Road is like a bit too big but fits everything.. But yeah. I don't know. I'll probably end up taking CR bag. Ahaha. Oh, and I studded the 'O' in Country Road on both sides of the bag with a gold stuf. Ingenious. Amber told me to put an anchor on it. But yeah. Thats a bit hard. Ahaha.
- Oh, I also studded my suitcase with the remainder of my circle studs, and my random pyramid studs. If you wanna see it I'll take pictures. It looks good with the circle studs.. wish I had more to stud with. ): So now its kinda dodge, but still presentable. It's different. Lols. :)
- Found this camera! It looks really nice, and I really like it. I really want it off him, but yeah.. he wants to keep it because he used it for ages. LOL. But yeah. Its such a nice camera. But I just dont prefer the colour of it. I would like a black one iwth white writing for the 'Nikon' part. Canon ones look wierd. Some of the Power shot models look okay, but I dont know. I'm going for Nikon. Lol. :D
- NICE NICE NICE NICE NICE x 100000!
Today was pretty retarded. Got up early cuz I had to have a blood test. Saw who was gonna take my blood, and it was the bitch from ages ago who couldnt find my vein and was like crazy and was poking the needle that was in my arm full hard, which CAUSED NERVE DAMAGE. Whattabitch. Lulz. Anyways. Bolted when I saw her, so it was only Mum who went to getthe blood test. Had to go to Bowral to do it. Bowral was pretty good actually. Had lunch blah blah blah and yeah. Finished packing last night. I'll post pictures up on next post. But yeah. Sorry I havn't been really active on my blog, but yes. I shall be blogging homefully from my iPod in Hong Kong. Most of them won't have pictures, but yeah. If I do have pictures, hopefully they'll be taken from my nice camera which I shall get, and yeah.. thankyou Rosa Nguyen (http://r05a.blogspot.com) who possibly gave me the best advice on cameras I've ever had. Lulz. Anyways. Enjoy my next post! :) And hope you all have a fantasmal holiday filled with joyous fun, and have a safe, sound and amazing last week at school. Safe trip to Shelly who is going to Mauritius today. Safe flight. have a beautiful stay.

Yesterday was probably my most intense day ever. Sorry for not blogging. After sport went to Mac Square with Avi. Had so many trains to catch wasn't even funny. Got there, blah blah, Avi's getting me a birthday present and yeah. He couldn't find his present for Troy's birthday so he went to get Oporto and went on the train. Lulz. Newais, we nearly missed the train because we were sitting there, and the train was behind us, and it was just parked there, and Avi stood up and was like 'Hey is that our train?' so I'm like oh shit yes! Because it was already 3:45 then, and in 2 minutes our train would leave, so if we missed that one I wouldve been in so much trouble from school. Ahaha. So caught that, and within like 2 minutes, the doors closed. Wooh. Luck. Lol. Got back to my room @ 4:15, talked to Jay for 5 minutes, who brung up the fact that our inning was at 4:30, so I had liek 15 minutes to get ready. Got ready Blah blah, and yeah. Inning was pretty fun. Learnt how to play pool. Ate so much and got sick at night. Ahaha. and Watched Van Helsing & The Waterboy. Both were pretty good. :D. Lol. Wednesday was a pretty good day I reckon. Last Netball for the term too. Yeehargh. :D
Okay. Now today was such a bad day. You know how I mentioned that the number 23 just plagues my life with misfortune. Yeah. Well that happened today again aswell. Maths test, which I knew I completely blew. Wooh. Wuts this, 23/33. Hello getting moved to the front. Argh. And yeah.. every second test I do bad in, because like, I think we do like 3 topics for the Half yearly, and my next topic test will be good, and my half yearly will be bad. Argh. So worried, because I really don't wanna flunk my Half Yearly because that's actually worth alot more than the silly topic tests.
On the other hand though, I did somehow manage to achieve 103.5/104 for my Katakana assessment for Jap. Lol. So nerdy. Hewett said we're the smartest class so far for that test, because over 60% of the class got 100% Lol. It was all like, everyone got called out for 104/104, and then, it was like, EUGENE, 103.5 ARGH. Was so annoyed because I screwed up the 'Mi' I like mirrored it. How stupid of me. Lol. So Technically, so many people tied for 1st place in the class I got 2nd place. Grr. How sucky. That sounds really bad too. Grr. Lol.
On the ligher hand of things, I'm really glad this week is nearly over because I'm going overseas and it's my last week. But I think this term I've grown close to alot of people I wouldn't talk to and didn't know how to talk to. And yeah. This term has been great. Thankyou all for making it such a great time.
Most of you guys would know Labib went to Dubai (Due Bye :() forever on Wednesday, It was his last day. The last time I saw him was after Biathlon. And yeah. Was just thinking how long I've met Labib You know. And yeah. Just gonna write him a dedication.
I can shove my whole fist in my mouth, wanna see? LOL KIDDING. Totally reminded me of Dear John.. Ahaha. Internal humour never mind. Ahaha. I remember in Year 7, like I didn't really know anyone, and to be completely honest, I didnt really wanna know anyone either. You were in my DAI classes and possibly the FIRST person I talked to one on one about something I liked (Anime) Lol. But looking back, Year 8 was such a bitchy year for me. Like I was such a bitch to everyone and was full like GRRR to everything and wasn't committed to studies or anything either.. and I guess we could've been friends (better friends I mean) if we cut those boundaries. I feel so sorry now looking back on how we might've been friends and stuff. And I look back on Year 8 and I see how much of a bastard and bitch I was to everyone, and I regret treating everyone in that manner. Honestly, there are still some people I would like to inject arsenic and acid into, but thats an entirely different matter. But Labib, I hope you have a wonderful journey in Dubai, learn what you have to learn, and be prepared for whatever life has instore for you.

I still really want fairy lights. Like, I might be getting some from Harrison's parents for my birthday, because they have them, but theyve got a silicon casing around them, and inside theres a light, and then I've got a wooden frame in my room somewhere, so if I hammer it to my wall, I can kinda intricately place the lights in a pattern on it. It'll look nice. But that will take effort, and time.. and i don't have any of that at the moment.
Anyways, Netball tomorrow, don't really feel like going. But wahey, what can you do. Atleast I can talk to Christine and Mish about shit. Lulz. Have a great day tomorrow everyone. And I'll see most of you at school tomorrow. :)

Ahaha. These a nice jacket at GPC with the anchor crest on it. So nice. Anyways.. was in ag 1st period and was trying to make a mark of the anchor on Amber's leg when Pachiewwww. It snapped off! how retarded. Was full sad. ): NEW NECKLACE RUINED. Actually, I was pretty pissed at the time, but eh. Lulz. Anyways.. Rest of the day was pretty crap. Gave the necklace to Christina to Hot glue gun and attempt to fix and what not, and yeah.. Maths I'm pretty worried about with Indicies, because I'm pretty sure I'm gonna flunk it and so many people are gonna beat me. How lame. Got a $50.50 voucher from Farzana at lunch today for General pants. How nice of her :) Thankyou Katharine, Farzana, Michelle Dam, Michelle Nguyen and Christina for chipping in. You're all the best. Happy Birthday Roy!

Allan’s use of interviews from people close to Mandela in ‘Mandela: The Living Legend’ give a first person account of what type of person Mandela is shown to be behind all the publicity. During Allan’s documentary, interviews with Mandela’s personal assistant convey a detailed recount of Mandela’s story; therefore giving the audience a direct insight into the life of someone publicised so heavily. The direct interview with Mandela gives more technical detail into the story behind the words and publicity.
In “Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s war on Journalism”, director Greenwald is shown to use incriminating past footage of fox’s biased point of view, favouring the Republican Party’s decision and hence being assertively bias against the Democrats. This is shown in past footage when the fox journalist criticises John Kerry as ‘scaring old people as usual’, which is an exaggeration of the truth and can lead the audience to believe that Kerry is what Fox News perceives him to be. Hence twisting the news into a perspective which promotes Fox News’ point of view which alters the way the audience’s knowledge of events.
During the documentary of ‘Mandela: The Living Legend’, the music is used to promote sympathy towards Mandela. The different moods created by the music when the focus of the story changes is a technique used by Allan to target our emotive senses. For example, during the interview with Mandela when he reminisces about the years he fought the apartheid, music was slow and soft, which drew the audience into a feeling of nostalgia. However, sharp and loud tones are used when Mandela is shown to be called a ‘terrorist’ in past black and white footage. The audience’s emotive perspective is altered in response to the change in music.
In Greenwald’s documentary, the sources of information that promote what the documentary presents are all primary sources which are more reliable than secondary sources which are heavily impacted from Fox News. Secondary source such as newspapers usually summarise what certain news stations have said either the night before or in the morning. Fox News being one of the larger news stations will more often than not impact on what is being projected. However, primary sources sourced by people with no association with Fox news at the present time such as Jeff Cohen, who was interviewed by the documentary are sources which can be trusted because Cohen has ‘nothing to lose’ if he restates his past affiliation with Fox. Hence gaining a stronger sense of trust from audience as a response to this use of sourcing.
The use of film techniques to either promote or criticise the certain point of a subject that is used to convey an idea is a highly regarded way of presenting a point of view effectively. The bias in the documentary is usually one sided; therefore it can never be totally objective. Consequently without the bias and techniques a documentary is not a documentary. Hence it is safe to say the balance of bias and techniques as a whole is rather ‘fair and balanced’.
