An American Crime

As per usual, I’ve immersed into Hollywood for films that would entertain me during the holidays. I thought maybe a good Ellen Page movie would be able to do the job. And from there is where I came across of such a heinous crime film. 

Based on a true crime case happened in 1965. The brutal beatings on 16 year-old Sylvia Likens. 

Sylvia was left together with her sister under the care of Gertrude Baniszewski since her parents were busy with their work in the carnival. 

I wouldn’t want to give away too much but I’ll just say that her stay with the Baniszewski family was not a pleasant one. 

What was much more worse was that not even did the woman abused her, she even allowed her children to do so. So-called ‘teaching Sylvia lesson’ for the misdeeds that she has been accused of.



The picture shown on the left is the real-life Sylvia Likens.

The movie depicts the courtroom drama about Sylvia’s murder. Though it was rather accurate it still did not tell the WHOLE story. I was curious and I wanted to know more about the case. 

This article is the closest I could find about the murder of Sylvia Likens. It is sad to know that people still choose to ignore the obvious untill the damage done would be too late.

Haaa… I remember this sitcom long, long time ago.. I guess its the opening song thats stuck in my head. The couple was so sweet, and now as I watch the series all over again, the guy is actually kind of cute. 😉 Here is the very first episode of how they met. As in, the VERY FIRST TIME.

Okay… I won’t be leaving you guys guessing what happens next… Its not like you didn’t know that they got married in the end. On their FIRST DATE.


Ouh yea. Did I forget to mention I just started my 3 weeks holidays? WOOOPEEE!!!

Ramalama Bang Bang/SexyBack

These few dances just randomly popped in my head on my way to school one day. I guess the song that I was listening to reminded me of them.

Yesh. Both dances are from the same choreographer. None other than Mr. Wade Robson himself. Enjoy!

PS. Happy 43rd Birthday, Singapore! 😀
