It's been quite an interesting week so far. But I've been out too often lately and have been spending limited time at home with the family (bet they missed me too woohoo). Let's hope tomorrow (Sunday) and the few days after would be nice stay-home days! =D

Nevertheless, it's been fun seeing new people, attending the bbq minus those annoying cats :( URGH!, the dinner with people I did not know well (but randomly fun =D), and the meet-ups with people who came back from overseas lately! It's been great.

And the sleepover at lil poh's house too, in which we talked and laughed so hard I had asthmatic cough for the night, and then the birthday dinner I attended when I haven't even met the birthday boy before. how muka tembok i know right but it was fun nevertheless :P. haha! =P

And this coming week, more rounds of meet-ups/dinner/yumcha.
(Oh crap, wallet is seriously getting thinner! How now brown cow?)

And that particular meet-up, should I or should I not? hmm.

nyehe! picure time! :P

Goodnight. Guess I won't be insomniac tonight after tiring myself from the past few days! =D

What up yo!

Hello folks! It's been awhile since I last bothered to update this blog.

I was barely half done with the semester when I previously blogged. Who would have guessed that the next time I touch this blog (which is now, today) would be after I have completed my final semester in university, and even, my life as a student has now come to an end! Well, unless I decided to do postgraduate studies but even so, I would not consider myself being a student then. Haha.

Somehow I have lost the urge to always write about things like how I used to. Perhaps it is because I do not take walks like I do in Australia anymore; neither do I do all my chores on my own anymore. Hence less observation of my surroundings and thinking (I usually do a lot of thinking on my way home from the university when I was studying in Aussie), and thus less inspiration to pen down my thoughts.

Life in Subang is just so different. I'm so pampered and well taken care of - much lesser chores to do, always being chauffeured around/have car, have mom to take care of my well-being (self explanatory, that almost fully explained the meaning of "being pampered"), dad to take care of my finances and a bit of my well-being as well, sis to go shopping with (and maybe buy me lunch/tea/stuffs), bro for me to call for when I face technology/gadget difficulties, and more friends here to study with (and now, graduate together!!). I mean come on, everything's here at a place I call home! In some ways I feel very blessed. =)

Anyway, I mentioned that I have completed my studies. Indeed, that's right. I am basically having the time of my life now - full freedom from the books/notes/lectures/tutorials, no commitments, no datelines, long hours of sleep, going out or spending time at home whenever I wanted to, etc. But I know that this is bound to end soon when I get a job. I'm currently still in the midst of preparing/finalizing my CV and application to some companies and let's hope I get through to the big companies! Too long a period of enjoyment brings detriment too. The brain functions at a slower pace, but the wallet thins at an even faster pace! I feel like a parasite, eroding dad's capital as I spend on shopping and good food so much. Hence, I seriously gotta get a job soon and start earning my own money.

So here's a brief recap on what's happened during the past few months. Shall not bother writing too much as it'll take forever to complete.

1) Basically, there were birthdays...

CK's birthday. Just a simple dinner with friends (quite a big group. picture above only consists of all who wore green in which I'm included *proud smiles*) and hang out sessions that's all.

Then it was Navjit's birthday celebration in the midst of exams AND after exams where we went for dinner together. and it was catching up sessions with Lobeka who came back, from aussiesesatland, Gene bean who *ahem* had some (or many) updates lately, and of course, here I'm talking bout Hwee as well. Updates *wink wink*. Haha. I can't help smiling when I think of all the good news/things that happened ever since exams ended! =D Haven't met the other few from their SJ gang though but will soon do I suppose! (It's still very funny and unbelievable that I'm keeping in touch with more SMKSJ people than those from my own high school!?)

Then there were also Ee Ann's and Grace's birthdays but these we did not get to celebrate due to unallowing circumstances but chill out girls! Presents coming your way! =D

2) I worked at Adam Lambert's glamnation tour concert...
and it was hella fun! I loved Lambert, I loved his vocals, and his charisma. Very amazing indeed. Anyway, great experience. I got placed at the VIP area with those pretty girls and I suppose I'm considered as one of them? nyaha! =P

Anyway that should be all for today. Chao for now ladies and gentlemen. Take care and good luck with your endeavours til we meet again! =D

Guess what?

I combed my hair today! It's been awhile...

HELLO COMB! It's been almost a year since I last used you! =D

Hi. Missed me?

Hi. Missed me?

Thought so! =P

Oh no! My 1 week mid sem break is officially over! To be honest, I spent that whole week bumming around more than doing anything productive. Partially also because baby Amanda (my cousin) is here for the week as her parents are overseas. She's such a distraction because she's too adorable. Just couldn't resist playing with her!

And, I had an assignment due today at 5pm. Just handed it in. Basically I spent the whole week doing it, yet I still had to sleep at 5.30am last night. The reason? Well.... procrastination, of course =(

Well, anyway it's all over! Assignments for the semester (and potentially for the entire uni life)! Now I gotta shift my focus to the remaining tutorial work and revision for final exams. It's all happening in 23 days! OH LORD THAT FAST?! No, seriously, OMG. And what am I doing here and on Facebook again? Shit, self-control, SELF CONTROL! =(

Ok no wordy post for now (it's been awhile since the last wordy post yes?) because I've been too busy to ponder on things! No time to think, no. AHH I dread exams =( But, fret not! For there're loads of activities lined up after exams!

The Grace is coming back! And hey daling, can't wait to go do breakfast! karaoke! shopping! and... road trips? =D omgggg I ought to get my pricey-but-pretty-which-is-worth-it white and black bow ribbon in addition to my red and white collection. No, seriously. OH and not to forget, my EMO GIRLS reunion! plus the guys of course. More trips I can foresee? =D

As for now, I gotta get back to the books and the notes.

*nerd mode*

stone. =(

Watch these!

Sorry, Sorry / Super Junior MV 中文空耳字幕-那根芭蕉版

Seriously, you just gotta watch this video - Super Junior: Sorry Sorry.

It is super hilarious. I know it's meant to be cool and entertaining and yes, i find it entertaining, but hilariously entertaining. It's so funny it's like instant stress relieve everytime i watch it. The dance steps are kinda funny, plus so many guys dancing like this.... hahahahahahahaah omg. Really. And the chinese lyrics that some dude created. It's totally hilariously awesome. Watch it, I command! =D

Jane Zhang & JJ 我飞故我在 "Fly" 张靓颖 林俊杰

Gotta thank Joey Goh for sending this link to me. Didn't know the joy boy had such awesome taste too :P It's a very beautiful song i reckon! Both their voices are very good and complement each other well. I particularly like jane zhang's vocals more in this song. As for jj, well i've always liked his voice =)

Helloooo =D

Sarapohz and Lobeka said that my blog is dead.

Well, it's not now! =D

P/s: I made a new cbox account due to the previous overly-spammed cbox by some unknown spammers. Let's hope it won't happen again =)

Sunday, August 1, 2010

Spam alert

I hope you guys noticed that my cbox on the right of this page had been filled with some "comments" from "commenters" giving links and asking people to visit their site. In fact I'm not even sure whether those are actual people typing those messages or whether those are just spams.

Whatever it is, I urge you NOT to click. It is safer not to, I reckon. I have reported some as spam and even banned some ip addresses but it didn't seem to work quite well. They just keep coming. And it is seriously damn annoying. If this continues, I might consider deleting the cbox from my blog.

Please take note, ladies and gentlemen.

1. Amanda
3 weeks ago when I first came home from Australia, there was a baby at my house. The baby's name is Amanda and she belongs to my aunt. Mom helped aunt to take care of the baby for 1 month while aunt goes to work. But last Friday, the baby went home for good cos her mom resigned and became a full time housewife to take care of her.

Amanda is so adorable. Having a baby at home made me learn a bit on how to take care of babies, by observing how mom does it (she's pretty experienced in this, after years of raising my siblings and I). Well, the best part of it all was that I learnt to carry her. It was kinda scary to carry a month old babies cos they seemed so fragile but I did it and liked it especially when she seemed secured in my arms and smiled widely as she slowly fell asleep peacefully. That experience was truely priceless =) She just made me love babies more.

This is how baby Amanda looks like. She is so adorable nobody could resist and she is now the center of the whole family's attention. Such a right time to exist, being the only baby in the family and the whole family's love and care are showered on her without other babies to share :p

Anyway she went home to her mom last Friday and the whole family missed her. But we can still see her anytime we want at her house =)


2. A trip to the cinema
HOHO I went out with my girls today to pyramid to watch a movie. The choices were between Despicable Me and Inception. But guess what we ended up watching yo! It is Twi to the light Twilight Eclipse. HAHA. Cos Shari and Grace had to leave early and the next session for those 2 movies were too late.

But hey to be fair this time it isn't that bad compared to the second, and I didn't watch the first so I'm not gonna compare it to the first. The second one was seriously a pain. But the third one was alright, though not superb. At least there was an element of suspense on whether Victoria will find Bella and what they'll do to defend themselves against the new-born vampires etc.

But the cheesiness between Edward and Bella, oh boy, cracked me up a little. I laughed at one point when it was so cheesy I could not take it and Suan and Shari both laughed as well haha. But don't get me wrong. Cheesy is good, cheesy is good (it's kinda ticklish if you get what I mean hahahhahahaa).


3. The end of a journey, the beginning of another
Technically the semester is starting tomorrow but my classes only start on Thursday. Sigh, it's back to that same ol routine (that I dread) again. But then again, this can never be avoided. It is part of the process that everyone has to encounter in growing up. And this is my final semester as a student, after which I would most probably be working.

Time really flies. It still feels as though it was just yesterday when I first came to Monash, and before I know it, I have only 1 semester left to complete my studies. And at this time next year, I would most probably be already working! Sometimes I think I grow up too fast. I dread jumping onto the job-searching and career-life oriented bandwagon. But hey that's life, babeh. If this is not what I'll be doing, I don't know what else will be.

But I guess as much as I dread the future working-life, I kinda look forward to what I may face as that is where I would gain more knowledge on the real world and life, and hopefully achievements and self-satisfaction at work.

But looking on the brighter side, I hope to make full use of my remaining half a year of life as a student. And it's pretty exciting to be back at the Malaysian campus because there are more pretty girls here than in Caulfield! Or maybe they are just easier to be spotted here than Caulfield? haha =P It's not that I have specific interest in pretty girls, but don't we all love looking at pretty things? =D

Anyway it's late, time for bed. Goodnight before the sun rises hohoho =D

Time to be a nerd again! 8-)

Have you seen a nerd camwhore?

There. =P

Friday, July 16, 2010


This week is my final week of freedom. The second semester of the year starts next week.

After which, it means another (and potentially the final) round of stress, assignments, tutorial works, and exams. Seriously I dread exams. I realize I always do not perform my best in exams. Perhaps it's cos I overstress myself prior to the exams that during the actual exam day itself I have no more willpower to sustain the mood and thus, I under-perform. Sometimes I feel very angry with that attitude of mine too.

For the coming semester, I hope for consistent hard work. I hope I will sustain the mood to study and always keep up with syllabus. I think I am really poor in time management. This shall be something about me that I need to observe and hopefully improve the next semester. It is my final semester, and I just needa nail it.

And I am writing this so that when I look back, I remember this is what I wanted to strive for. So much thoughts flowing through my mind now - thoughts regarding my academic life which is coming to an end, my career life which is drawing closer and closer, and my achievements in life so far. I am still looking for my talent and something that I would excel in but unfortunately, I just can't seem to find a satisfying answer yet.

And the more this happens, the less faith I have in life. Sometimes when you see people achieving what you've always strived for, you ask yourself, where did you go wrong? If you've worked hard and they too worked hard, but they achieved so much more than you did, then how much more hard work do you have to put in to gain the equivalent amount as what they have gained?

Life isn't fair. Some are born with natural talents and are good in everything without trying much; while for people like me, I have never been the brightest kid in town, nor the handsomest among the rest. And therefore there's a lot more for me to do in order to be on par with others. This is, indeed, very tiring. But I shall take the remaining semester as a real challenge, and continue fighting to at least gain as much as I can before my opportunity dies down.

Please, God bless me. Thank you.

I learnt that...

There's always 2 sides of story to a dispute. The involved party always thinks he's right and the other party is always wrong in his opinion. And then he'll tell his friends his side of story which would appear to his friends that he's right and the other party is wrong. This happens most of the time.

I have almost never been in one and always chose to avoid but it will still affect me rather greatly if the other party goes overboard. It is, however, very tiring to be in one but sometimes it is just difficult to forget what's happened and talk to that person like normal. At least not so soon.

Random thoughts 11/7/2010

I miss taking walks home from uni alone after my classes when I was in Australia, especially when the weather was good and not too cold. The walks were usually peaceful and observing the surrounding stimulates my mind and makes me think. I remember observing how fat the birds in Aus were. And I am still amazed by their size compared to Malaysian birds, really. =/

But I'm not complaining that I do not get to take walks anymore. The lifestyle of being chauffeured in car in Malaysia is good as well. Saves energy + there's air con =)

Anyway, point is, I think that my brain hasn't been really working due to holidays (too relaxed, don't needa think much) and holidays are quite a bore, it makes one lazy as a result of lazing around at home too much rather than stimulating a person's mind. But when there're classes, things pass by too quickly that you feel you do not have enough time for studies.

I really wish there could be more balance in this. Like we have more frequent but shorter holidays (1 week holiday after every 2 weeks of classes), rather than long holidays all at one go (1 or 4 months holiday). I don't know if it's actually feasible, but all I know is that it will not happen.



Majority of the society judge people by appearance. Though it might seem shallow to some people, but you might realize that subconsciously appearance does affect your impression on a person.

Furthermore, how can the society (especially young minds that aren't completely molded yet) not be affected when majority of the hit songs describe affections based on appearance.

An example that I came across most recently is this:
Honey got a booty like pow, pow, pow
Honey got some boobies like wow, oh wow
Girl you know I'm loving your, loving your style
Check, check, check, check, check, checking you out like,
Ooh (oooh) she got it all
Sexy from her head to the toes
And I want it all, it all, it all
Usher -OMG

And we all know there are plentyyyy more describing affections in the same way. This just shows how people get attracted to people based on looks.

Just gotta admit that appearance does play a part in this huh?

Is this a good or bad thing? Well it's up to you to judge =)

Bad antics

Would you feel disturbed when people talk to you,with many swear words included in their speech? Or are you the type who uses swear words in your speech?

I don't know bout you but personally, I cannot stand people including a lot of swear words when talking. It might be excusable to use it when you're mad or angry but is there actually a need to use it in casual conversation? It is even more unpleasant when a girl does this.

And I have this thing against smokers. I usually walk away when someone near me starts smoking. And I find it disturbing to see girls smoking. Especially those with bleached hair, thick black eye make up, super short shorts (torn denim, super hipster), super high heels. I think it looks pretty degrading, doncha think?

The foul words are disturbing, the smoking is sick. But yet I wonder why some people think it's cool and why they do it.

Hmm. Thoughts to ponder around? =)

The earth is spinning too fast

Seriously, I wonder where my 24 hours in a day go. Time really passes insanely fast.

In a blink of an eye, an hour passed. Before you know it, it's nightfall again.
24 hours felt long but it wasn't actually enough to spare.
You realize you didn't do much in a day but yet, there goes your day.
It passed just right under your nose.

That's life for you, ladies and gentlemen.

New header

New picture for header. This time there're 5 of us in the picture. Ho ho Sarapohz happy? =P

Friday, July 2, 2010

And finally...

I'm home!

So glad to be home. But everything felt so surreal. It's as though the past half a year in Aus was a dream. Perhaps it is just that I adapt to home so well that it felt as though I have never left home. And I'm loving this feeling. I love the fact that I'm home! Loving the weather though I sweat much more here and even soaking wet sometimes, but I seriously appreciate the weather here. And it feels so good to sweat again! =D

Loved Aus for the shopping + food. Definitely gonna miss it and also my aunt and family who took such great care of me when I was in Melbourne. Gonna miss aunt a whole lot. Wanted to cry when I hugged her goodbye at the airport but I held on. Cried when I hugged Sarah and left Emo House. Man I'm so gonna miss that house cos of all the memories that came with it. Miss my housemates lotz! And thank you Janice for the lovely card you made. It was lovely and it emofies me even more =(

And sucha coincidence! Emily and Yee Keong sat beside me on the flight! We didn't plan it! At first emily and Yee Keong booked the seats in front, while I booked the seat at the back. But somehow Air Asia changed their seats to those beside mine. I was so shocked when I saw them. =D

One of the only bad parts bout being home is: Being in Malaysia = seeing more of lizards again OMG LOR WEH!! I hope I won't be seeing them!! OOOH AND!!! I had my maggi goreng after I touched down!! + tandoori chicken OMG LOVELEH BABEH!

Met up with Graze today. Met her just 6 days ago at Melbourne but it feels as though I haven't seen her for 6 months! Haha. The person I see most often in Melbourne, is the first I meet when I'm home. =D

Anyway, just a slight update for today. I came home to a cute adorable baby (aunt's. but baby is here occasionally for mom to look after when aunt's working). Aww sucha cute baby she's now the center of attention that mom barely has time for me! Pft.

Oki more updates soon!

Til then. =D

Hi! =D

Who would have thought that I could come online from Emo House again!
(Didn't have internet the whole of last week cos we disconnected it as all of us are leaving)
Thanks to Hwee who resubscribed for the internet connection cos she'll be here for another month so she needs it, and so I tumpang. =D

Anyway, it's packamania at Emo House!

Grrr so annoying. Don't know where to start how to start what to start with. I'm so reluctant to clear my study desk. How now brown cow? =(

Sarah's friends are here for the night. 9 people in Emo House. Whoa it's never been this happening before. So in total contrast with how Emo House was the past few days, where only Janice and I were home, plus Grace who was here most of the nights to sleepover. It was so quiet as opposed to now! It's 3.06am and they're still playing guitar. 2 guitars and 1 ukulele. It feels really nice though, to have so much noise here. Me love happeningz =D

Oh ya omg Sarah and I went to Mart for breakfast this morning and it was AWE-DAMN-SOME MANZ! Seriously. Super duper satisfying. If only I could have more of that. Life... Good things are never sufficient, are they?

Also went for big breakfast with Grace yesterday at Melbourne Central before her flight back home. That was also totally awesome. Blogged bout it actually when I dropped by uni on the way home to use the internet (there was no internet at Emo House) after coming back from the city. But didn't publish it yet cos I haven't uploaded pictures! Can't do that now either cos we have limited quota to use so better not upload pictures from home. Gotta just wait til I go to uni or when I'm home in Malaysia!

At the moment I seriously can't wait to go back to Malaysia. The weather here is so freaking cold I can't take it I wanna go homeeee. It feels as though my hands are put in an ice box I can't even feel my hands!! That bad.

Gotta pack now. Else I won't get my sleep ever. Toodles.

My last few days in Melbourne

So I had been hanging out with Gracie Chong throughout the past few days ever since the very day my exams ended. It's been really great having her in Melbourne and I am more than glad that she's here. Seriously, she made such a huge difference in my Aussie experience. What more can you ask for than having one of your best friends with you in a foreign country when you're new here?

Basically it was "splurgymania " for the both of us. We went shopping all day at Swanston, Bourke, South Wharf, Harbour town, Vic Mart etc. Well we did not only shop for ourselves, but we also had a mission, which is to fill our siblings' shopping lists. It wasn't easy buying things for other people because you really wouldn't know if the things you find pretty, will seem the same to them.

Wanted to really get something for dad, mom, grandma, aunts and cousins too but perhaps it's also cos of the generation gap, I just can't seem to think of anything good enough to surprise them with besides food and chocolates, which means that there aren't much surprises to give =( But anyways, glad I know that dad loves kit kat and so I bought those for him because apparently kit kats here are nicer =D And my bro better treat me better for the effort I made to find his stuff - walking under the rain in freezingg weather just for you my lovely brotha. O=)

And then Graciechong and I splurged on food as well. Just wanted to eat all the nice food here that I will certainly miss when I get back to Malaysia. Ying thai, Stalactites' Souvlakis, Freddos' gelatos (OMG FREDDOS IS ), KFC's fries (which is different from the ones in Malaysia)... I'm missing those already! And all my arnott's bisuits too. Stocked up but I am sure it'll finish in no time when I get home. sobz. Too addictive. T.T

What made the past few days even greater was that Grazes came over and stayed over at Caulfield. Yay sleepover! It was awe-damn-some. Else it would be only Janice and I in the house cos Beckz is in Malaysia, Navz in Brisbane, and Pohz in Sydney. Watched movies and have chats at night. It was just chillaxingly fun.

Went for big breakfast with Grazes on this very beautiful Sunday morning before her flight back home to Malaysia. Oh gosh the breakfast was loveleh! With a cuppa latte to perfect things up. Super satisfying. After bidding farewell to Graciechong, I decided to go shopping on my own. I took a really nice walk on my way to South Wharf DFO. The sun was out, the weather was just perfect, the view was beautiful, and Yarra river never seemed prettier than this before.

Maybe it is because I was walking alone so I had time to slowly walk along the river while enjoying the sun and scenery around me. I even stopped to take pictures (and took 1 of myself too =P). Everything was just perfect. Very peaceful and nice. Super awesome ♥ Spent quite some time in Borders reading a book, and then off to Cotton On which is a must to visit @ South Wharf cos things there are seriously insanely cheap! haha. =P

Almost 3 quarter done with packing and thankfully I have Grace to help me big time to carry my stuff home. Oh gosh, it was indeed a very big favour from her and I couldn't thank her more. She just made my life easier so I have less trouble bringing all my stuff home. Tried to also rely on some friends who are going back to Malaysia for hols (thought they had less to carry) but not all are as willing as Gracechongz and my housemate Navjitz. haha. Thanks girls. Truly appreciate your help! That's why I always say girls are nicer you see =)

Alright I better go now this post is getting too long. It's 4 days til I'm home! Man it's sooner than I thought. See ya when I'm home people!

Til then.

Farewell #2

Today marks the last day of exams. Last night was the final night that I was actually studying properly in Australia. As much as I'm glad that finals are finally over, at the same time I feel heavy hearted to part with whatever I went through this semester in Australia, specifically Caulfield and Emo House, and also this might sound crazeh, but I will also miss the stress. And the awesome feeling of having housemates taking the same subjects to stress with and discuss the problems with =)

I will miss staying at uni til 11pm to study, I will miss my lecturers (having angmoh lecturers was fun cos it felt different), I will miss going to city with the girls, I will miss Emo House, I will miss chilling out with the girls in one of our rooms til morning light, and most importantly, I will miss the friends I made here. Hey people! We'll continue this part of fun in Malaysia yeah? Since most of you will be going back soon as well. ha!

Just got my marks for my final assignment and I'm contented. Assessments this semester so far had been good. =)

In about a weeks' time, I would be back home! Excited!! =D I love Aussie although I had some bad encounters with rude people but I know generally Aussies are alright, just that small proportion strain the general reputation of the friendliness of the people here.

Will be busy packing and enjoying my last few days without exam stress here in Australia. Will probably be back blogging when I'm home in Malaysia! woohoo hello sun! nyahahahahaa.

Exam season @ Building T lab. Office feel = awesomeness. =D

Til then.

Farewell #1

Rebeka (it's Rebecca but I just like to call her that =P) left Emo House early this morning to the airport to go back to Malaysia. It was the last time hanging out with her and with all 5 of us Emo House girls going out together last night. And honestly, I felt it was the best monthly dinner so far, at least all of us were hyper and had the mood, unlike previous times when some were too tired to be hyper etc.

But anyway, point is, I am super emo now cos it was the last time I see Rebeka in Aus and hang out with her in Aus and this also means that there won't be anymore outings with 5 of us going out together in Aus anymore. It was always like a holiday with them around.

These girls, each and everyone of them - Sarah, Rebecca, Hwee, Navjit... made my stay in Aus the awesomeness thing ever. Thank Buddha/Guan Yin/God for that, and maybe it was the right choice I made to come to Aus in February this year rather than last year (I almost transferred here last year). If not, I seriously wouldn't have met them everrrr.

sigh. ♥ you girls lotzezzz manzzz. missing you guys already =(

3 papers down, 1 more to go. Had the most suckiest one last night. Actually I think all papers are super tough this semester. But glad that I had housemates stressing with me =P

It's back to the notez now. chaoz =(

Thursday, June 10, 2010


As usual, exams are killing me. I am so stressed I have irregular sleeping hours and I was so stressed I cried once... fine, twice or more.

Before you start judging that I'm a kiasu freak who's so kiasu I cry cos I'm worried that I cannot fully grasp the knowledge of all 12 weeks' of work well, please also do understand and take into consideration the fact that I'm in my 3rd year of an Accounting and Banking & Finance major, the subjects do get tougher than ever and it is also obviously not easy to juggle between 2 tough majors (1 is enough to make me suffer).

Moreover I have another Law subject (yes, again) this semester. Gosh listing all these down, I feel like crying again. Haha. Help mom! I'm sooooo worried and stressed and scared and stuff. Oh yeah, ask me the subjectivity of a business course and I can go on and onnnn about it. Seriously, I think that business is a course that is really difficult in the sense that your answers are always very subjective and market-based and with market factors included in most of our studies, it just gets even tougher to understand and digest those information!

I have been sleeping at odd ungodly hours lately and waking up not long after to study, study, and study. In short, I'm very deprived of sleep now. It feels as though I study 24-7 and this feeling is NOT good. But oh well, at least I switch studying environment and it's less dull and boring. We went to Berwick library that day (oh I love that campus and its library), then Caulfield's (which we've sorta gotten bored of already) and Clayton's Matheson Law library today, and it'll be State Library this Saturday! I love studious silence. Can't wait to study and be productive studying in those environments =)

Went and consult mr. french lecturer today and it really helped. A lot. He's such a great lecturer, I really think he knows a lot of stuff and has a very good way of teaching. Let's hope this subject is one that yields superb results *cross fingers*.

Sigh mom, I have no time to boil water, fold clothes, wash clothes, and cook. So sad =(
Now if only mom was here to cook for me, boil soup for me and do chores for me, it'd be so great hehe. Basically studying overseas is about juggling between studies, play and chores. At home, the chores were taken care of by mommy, and I didn't have to worry bout that. But here, sigh, one extra thing to do. =(

Sigh, exams examsss!! In less than a week's time. Chances of HDs this time round? Well there might be, but let's not place too much hopes. What I should do is to aim, and as the saying goes, by shooting for the moon, at least I land among the stars =).

Oh random thought, I remember I attended this debate in Melbourne Uni by the Malaysian students who study in Australia (the topic was bout NEP), and one of the debater got this phrase wrongly by saying "Shoot for the stars and you land among the moon" or something like that. Damn joker. Please get your phrases correct before reciting it rather confidently (thinking that you're right but fact is you're a little wrong) in public. However though, I would say that the phrase that he makes, could actually mean something, but even that, it should sound something like "Shoot for the stars and who knows, you might reach the moon". Now that sounds like some unexpected desirable returns doncha think! Haha. (But then it's still not the cliche phrase that we always hear! =P)

Okay, I shall not be too critical at this point.

This is what a stress person does (or at least that's what a stressed me does when studying =P)

Ahhhhhh!! sostresssostresssostressSOSTRESSEDDDDDD =((((
*Takes deep breath*
*Chants* Life is good. Life is awesome life is great. *Faints*

It's library day again tomorrow. Sigh, hate walking in the cold and freezing all my way to and from uni. =( This may sound crazy to most of you but, I really miss Malaysian weather. At least it's stable and unlike here, temperamental. "Like a woman's temper", according to Navjit's friend.

Anyway, it's 3.55am here now and it's way, wayyyy past bedtime. I guess I'll stop here for now. Another wordy post =/

I'll see you when I see you folks. I won't probably be blogging much for the next few weeks til exam ends. Till then, take care!!

My nightmares:~
15/6 - Lending Decisions
16/6 - Taxation Law
18/6 - Investments and Portfolio Management

Depressed. Bye guys!

It is a very good feeling to make something with your heart and soul (not so kua cheong but you get the idea) and have someone appreciating it.

It's even a better feeling to have the homies to all join in the process of it til 2am in the morning by supporting (Sarah and Becca) and making noise and creating drama in the kitchen by baking their own cake at the same time and creating so much of jokes (Navjit and Janice).

These were the undecorated cupcakes that we baked for Sek Koln on his 21st birthday. *proud*

And this is how it looked like after decorating =)

Basically we baked 21 cupcakes and at his birthday dinner itself we arranged it on a tray and put H-A-P-P-Y B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y candles. Glad that he looked appreciative of our effort =) (hope he really is though! haha.)

I went to Coles to buy ingredients for the chocolate frosting last minute this noon but thankfully everything turned out well and the cakes looked pretty =) Man.. beating the cake batter was tough and required so much of energy! But it was still fun overall and worth the effort =) Thanks to the baking sifus Becca and Sarah I think now I know the basics of baking. haha!

Happy Birthday, Lau Sek Koln. Blessed 21st!

Thanks for the dinner. *hugs*

Ps: Qi! See I told you there's no such thing as fail! =P

A weekend well spent.

So many things to do, so little time.

Finals are coming up so soon but I have no mood to study because I can't wait to go home and keep thinking bout going home! How now brown cow?

Pray pray that I get the mood =)


I just came home after being in the city for 2 days. Currently overdose of public transport (tram + train) I still feel the sway as though I'm still on the tram/train. Gah.

Anyway, I went to the city during the weekend and stayed over at Grace's house so that we girls have more time to spend together before we officially start our exam-stressing period. Despite that the word "exam" kept appearing in our conversations/thoughts. we still managed to have great fun. Unfortunately Miss Grace's exam is sooner than ours so she was divided between going out with us, and studying for her exam. And 3 of us spent our night at her place studying too! Which is good, at least I did something productive during the weekend =)

We also managed to have video call with Shari cupcake who is currently in UK. She and Suan are also going back to Malaysia in July and I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THEM!!! =D =D =D

This trip was mostly spent exploring food that people in Melbourne say are must-tries. And so we tried Grill'd burger and chips, Ying Thai (damn awesome all of us have been there so many times), and Max Brenner for the first day. We were so full after Max Brenner and so we decided to call it a day on food. All were awesome, omg. That explains why my face is so round now Just gotta stop stuffing myself with junks and snacks irrelevantly. ha!

Hello Grace! =D

Chocolate Souffle. So rich, so gooddddd.

Lau Sekkoln with the hug mug.

This is my hug mug.

Then second day, we spent the morning studying too (a bit), and decided to try Mackers here. A friend mentioned that we should try all the bacon burgers here because we don't have them in Malaysia cos they're pork. Which is true and I am always curious how diffferent the Mackers will be here in Australia than the ones back home in Malaysia. Well nothing much in particular that they are different, only that they have extra bacon in their burger, and the cheese here seems more high class than in Malaysia. haha.

On the way out we decided to take some pictures cos the scenery outside Grace's house was so beautifully autumn =D

This is outside Grace's house. Victorian stlye. So beautiful.

Chicken Bacon Deluxe was nice but I still prefer Spicy Chicken Mcdeluxe =)

And then Ee Ann and I went to visit the State Library. Seriously, this magnificent library is so amazing it still amazes me. It is so huge I felt so small in it and I almost got lost in there. It looks so ancient. so Harry Potter-ish and also National Treasure-ish (the scene in the library where part of the clue for the treasure was hidden and Nicholas Cage had to go there and find).

Mind you, the pictures below are only showing one hall (the La Trobe Reading Hall), and there are many other halls as well! But I liked La Trobe most cos it's the most ancient =)

And since we brought our notes, we decided to stay there for 2 hours to study. I liked the atmosphere. The studious silence was amazing and it felt really like a library (a majestic one). However though, in such an ancient atmosphere, it feels a bit odd to hear people turning on their laptops with the windows startup music, handphones ringing etc. I mean, seeing them using laptops in this ancient environment, is odd enough. It's like ancient yet modern? =/

Studious me studying :P

At night, my housemates and I had this monthly dinner outing. And this time, we went to Vege Bar at Brunswick street. To get there, we had to walk through a kinda dark street which apparently was very notorious. 5 of us were so scared we quickly marched through that dark street with a pepper spray in Sarah Poh's hands ready to spray whoever that comes near us. It was just funny how we walked so fast and 5 of us walking side by side... LOL.

And we finally reached Vege Bar. Food was good, especially the Funghi Pizza. Unique ambiance. After that we explored the shops along that street. They sell really unique collectible stuff but I must say, also, that that place was kinda scary cos some shops sell weird stuff and have weird deco as well. It really felt like an adventure. Thrilling yet fun. Haha.

Then 5 of us each got a drink and gathered in Sarah's room for bonding session. It felt really nice that 5 of us finally properly sat down together with drinks (and snacks after that) and talked to each other bout random stuff. We slept exceptionally late that night but it was really nice. =) Pictures of these up soon. I haven't got them from Janice yet =)

Missing them already. Sigh, there's exams to face before it is home sweet home. Depressing, just like a stone, a burden, in my heart until the exams are over.

Oh, Navjit is baking marble cheesecake for us tonight! Let's hope it's not a disaster
Oh I forgot to mention that the other day's Mediterranean dinner was a success it was SO GOOD. =D

Recipe recipe..

Ah, I'm so proud of these pants sewn by Grandma. my housemates would have probably gotten so sick of me admiring my pants all the time. =P

Dinner! lovesssss. =D

Anyway, gotta study now, take care. =)
