welcome to my new secondary blog!

welcome to


From now onwards, all the clothes, accessories, etc. that I buy, will not be published here anymore. As well as posts under the label "wth am I wearing". Everything about fashion and shopping will be in this new blog now.

what am I wearing

stuff I buy

The reason it took me so long is because I used a wordpress blog, instead of the usual

Finally, this week I have time to finish it. Will be updating it soon this week!

P.S. This blog will still be functioning as my primary blog ;)

"pharmacy interaction day" ( No. 3 ) ***EDITED****

I realized in my previous post there were so many grammatical errors. This is why I don't like writing such long posts anymore. Being the lazy me, I am not going to re-edit my previous post. Sorry! *Sigh* I so need to buck up my English already.

Whee! I am in the new UKM Pharmacy official website!!! Wei2 aka Clara stumbled upon this photo when she was surfing the website for the latest news on our UKM quarantine. I forgot what is the url address, sorry! Can ask Clara ok?

Can spot me in the photo? I am the one right at the front row, the one in black, next to the girl wearing blue shirt (Tze Im). Ya la, I know cannot see my face kan?

That day, one of our lecturers, Dr. Mohd came in to our 3rd year classroom (BSH 5) and asks us all to pose for his camera. All for the slide show which we later saw during the Majlis Ikrar Farmasi that day. He asks us all to pretend to concentrate very hard to the lecture in front padahal there is no lecturer or lectures going on that day. Ya I know....did we fool everyone?

DATE: 25TH JULY 2009



As usual, every year (okay-lar, minus first year) I joined the "Hari Interaksi" for Pharmacy students at KTSN. This year also saw many 3rd-year absentees. Makes me think twice whether I should have went that day or not. Those of us who went now fear that the H1N1 transmission might have occurred that day since there were many Pharmacy students of every year who attended.
I was placed in sports house INDIGO along with Wei2, Ai Li and Janice. Besides that, the other sports houses are TARTRAZINE, AMARANTH and CHLOROPHYLL. Ya, sounds very scientific right?

But being the rebellious 3rd years we are, we sat in almost every sports house tents there are. Indigo tent was so hot since it was directly facing the sun. We crashed other houses' tents but continued cheering for Indigo. Lol ;)

Myself, Wai Kuan, Wei2 and Janice. I didn't wear the Hari Interaksi shirt because I left it at home. Lol. So I asked Wei2 to accompany me wearing the CAC shirt instead.

Thanks to the lovely Wai Kuan for all of the photos here (and her camera!) since yours truly did not bring her camera that day.

For more photos (all 29 of them!), go to Wai Kuan's friendster.

Guess which lovely painted nails is mine? For the answer, scroll right to the bottom of this post ;)


One funny thing that happened was that I won one of the lucky draws...again! Last year, my Matric no. was also called out for the lucky draw. This year, my name was called out. Hahaha. I think many people did not know who "Tong Hui Ling" is since most of my friends call me "Fiona".

I left the prize at Setapak so I cannot show in my blog. It is a set of rose-shaped candles. Very pretty. My other coursemates got even bigger and better prizes, Vannessa scored a bicycle-shaped decoration with a candle inside and Kwee Sze got a hamper of goodies!

Wei2 and I decided to contribute to Indigo by participating in one of the games. It was throwing and catching a water balloon using "kain batik".

I partnered up with Ai Li baybeh. We did lousily in catching it and the first time we throw the water balloon (to pass to the other members), the water balloon totally went to the wrong direction! Luckily, the second time around, we relaxed, count to three and it was a perfect throw (and also a perfect catch by Walter and another guy!)

Thanks to our junior, Tiu Wang for helping us take so many group photos of us third-years!

I think it was a lovely idea of Wai Kuan's to take photos at the green hill, under the shade of the huge trees and natural sunlight in the background.

Wth is Walter and Taufik (the 2 guys in front) doing?

All in all, Hari Interaksi was okay only-lar. Still boring but better that I expected it to be. INDIGO came in third (lucky not last). Got a little dehydrated from the weather. Went back home and slept like a baby until the headache faded away....

The answer is: the very multi-coloured one. Thanks to Etude house testers. Hee-hee ;)

i have been home-quarantined!

Know those times when I always complain about how I never have enough time to do this and that?...well, now I finally have ONE WEEK off (unexpectedly!)

This morning was like any other Monday morning. Went to campus at 7.30 am for my 8am class. After two classes, around 10am, Dr. Jamia, our Vice Dean of Pharmacy faculty, came into our classroom.

She asked us questions like, who live in KTSN, who live in Kampong Baru and who live outside of college. Finally she told us all to go back home directly, don't talk to anyone and don't go anywhere else. 13 Pharmacy students have been confirmed the H1N1 virus and the whole campus has been put under home quarantine.

No classes for one week. No assignments for one week. No lectures for one week.

My housemates has already gone to KL Sentral to book last minute air tickets back to KK and Sibu. Most of those who live in West M'sia have also left on buses back to their hometowns.

I will be going home tonight too. Hopefully I am not infected. But to be on the safe side, most probably I will not be going out anywhere at all this week. Just sit back and relax at home until further news from the fac.

Damn that Hari Interaksi last Saturday...I surely hoped I did not get it from one of those students there.

Happy Home-Quarantine my fellow UKM friends! See you all next Monday!

after 3 weeks in UKM: 3 movies, 4 outings and lots of food later…

So many things to study, so little time...will I ever survive?


I realized I have not been updating much in this blog. Is it just me, or have I reached that plateau stage in blogs, whereby the blogger just cannot be bothered to write, or the blogger just have nothing interesting enough to write.

Have been really busy ever since returning to campus. It seems like things that need to be settle, are never-ending. Once you finish one assignment, there is another. Once you finish highlighting one bunch of notes, the next comes up. At this rate, if I don’t put in more effort, I will end up running for the train and never reaching it. Please don’t mind the analogy.

Anyway, I have a few updates I have been meaning to post in my blog, which are things that I have been up to since returning to campus in the span of 3 weeks.



First up, Happy 22nd Birthday to “Aunty” Janice (14th July) and Happy 21st Birthday to Sweet Wai Kuan (21st July)! Hope you guys had a great birthday =)


On the first day of class, my roommates BB and Suz M, as well as housemate Wei2, the four of us was out and about shopping already. BB wanted to buy some formal clothes, and Suz M was helping out with some errands.


For dinner, we went to TGI Friday’s at Pavilion. Took pic in front of the new fountain.


At the end of the day, BB had the most buys, with couple of formal blouses and formal pants, Wei2 bought a new formal blouse, Suz M (I cannot remember, some small items) and myself, I copped these sandals that I have been eyeing for a while now. It was Mega Sales and Mega Chaos at Vincci.

Thanks to my lovely roommate Suz M for dinner!


For our new schedule this semester, I am so happy to see some slots empty every Wednesday after 12pm. Apparently, our coordinator wanted us to have some time to “beriadah”. Of course, she meant time for us to divulge ourselves in co-curriculum activities, but most of us see it as time to go shopping or watch movies. Hehe...

The latter is exactly what we did for the first Wednesday. Suz M, Ngiik Ling, Wei2, Ai Li and myself went out to watch the sequel, “TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN” whilst Jia Ying, Mei Chieng and Janice went to watch “Ice Age III”.

transformers shia-labeouf-transformers

This is actually my 2nd time watching “Transformers II”. The first time was during the holidays. I had mentioned before (on facebook) that I feel like watching it again, and now I am so glad I actually did. Transformers is one of those few rare movies that you can watch again and again, and still not get bored of. In fact, I think it was better this time around because there were some parts that I did not quite get during the first time I watched it, but during the second time around, it all becomes crystal clear.

Shia Labeouf is so cute. I seriously like this guy a lot. Most people probably watched it for Megan Fox, but Shia is the one I am more fixated towards. The effects are also super awesome. The storyline, albeit a bit confusing at times, serves some great action scenes.

Thumbs-up, I LURVEEE this movie!!!

This was also the second time for Suz M, my roommate. BB, my other roommate, also watched it twice. Lol. Go roommates and Transformers!!!


We had lunch at Gasoline beforehand. It was so-so, not that great and I seriously doubt its hygiene levels.

Finally I had the chance to watch this much-anticipated Johnny Depp movie.

I wanted to watch it ever since I heard about it on E!News (Channel 712). I love Johnny Depp, the guy really knows how to act in that cool (and weird) manner of his. And then I watch the trailer, and I got even more hyped up about it. I had to persuade my Mom to go watch it with me. My UKM friends is not much into all the guns and 1930s’ era.

The movie was even much better that I expected it to be. Johnny Depp as John Dilinger is simply convincing. I love how cool and suave and charming he is in this movie. No wonder girls will drop to his feet, despite him being such a dangerous wanted criminal.

My favourite scenes are those times when he outsmarted the whole police and prison forces, as well as his courting scene when he met Billie. His lines during that latter scene, are so perfect, they still lingered in my head after the movie has ended.

Based on a true story, I "wiki-ed” it, and the director really followed the actual story mostly, with some minor tweaks. Definitely a must-watch!

Right now I am really into all those 1930s' era fashion. Even the men dressed in those mobster suits are so handsome!!!

I realized I am turning into an action-movies kind of girl. Well, maybe just not interested in some of the romantic comedies genre movies out there currently.

Anyway, this is the last time I am going to watch movie on a Saturday afternoon at Mid Valley. The line is incredulously long!!! It was the opening weekend for Harry Potter 6, which explains everything.



Dinner at Chan Sow Lin Fish Head Restaurant with my aunt Wendy since she came back from the U.S. two weeks ago. No, she has no H1N1.

She showed me and Mom, the stuff she bought there. Less stuff this time around compared to the last time she went. She bought a pure leather handbag for Mom and a vintage-looking polka-dotted skirt for me. I will be posting the pic of the skirt in my new blog.

Yes, I have decided to do a new secondary blog. Started it during the holidays but still under works, which is why I will not released the url just yet. It is mostly a girl’s blog, with some of the shopping stuff I buy, and clothes I wear. Will talk more about it when it is finished =)

Dinner, as usual, is scrumptious. Had to have their trademark dish of fish.



Many people have been anticipating the release of the second-last instalment of the famous HP series. I apologize to a few people who have invited me to watch the movie with them, I decided to go watch it with my housemates, because it was easier to plan that way.

And so, Wei2, Suz M, Ngiik Ling, Mei Chen and myself finally watched this much-raved-about movie. Sadly, I am very much disappointed.

I have read the book before, but it was so long ago, I didn’t really remember the storyline. I know they changed some parts in the movie, but I felt it was too long and slow. At one point, I even felt sleepy. It was unfortunately, a little tad boring.

But on a brighter note, there are some things I do like:

  • Hermione! I like Emma Watson a lot. I do wished she had more scenes in this movie, though.
  • Daniel Radcliffe looks so much better with shorter hair and I thought his performance was not bad.
  • Tom Felton as Draco Malfoy at some times, looks really good-looking in his dark suits. Except when he did those ugly scorns (he did play the bad guy part).
  • The dialogue / lines at some parts are really funny. One I can remember laughing to was when Professor McGonagall asks the trio why they are always involved whenever something happens. And Ron Weasley replies that he has been asking himself the same question for the last 6 years. LOL.


Cute display of sushi at a restaurant.


So I have heard about Krispy Kreme from The Oprah Winfrey Show. Apparently, the Great O loves it, and it is one of the oldest well-established doughnut patisseries around. So I managed to persuade the rest to try the new outlet.

We took the cheaper option. Only RM7.50 for half a dozen, cannot choose what flavours we wanted. It was okay only lar. Some were just too sweet and we all came up with the same conclusion: Big Apple doughnuts is better (although I think J & Co is also not bad lar). The KK doughnuts definitely had an unusual dough. It tastes more like cake than bread.

random updates At Krispy Kreme’s.

So that is the end of my updates. Time to hit the books, or else I will be really stressed out when classes start tomorrow. The last two photos are taken with Suz M’s new webcam. She bought a new laptop, which is super-cool.

Love the effects of her webcam. Paris and San Francisco, we were there! (we wished lar)

More of these cute shots at Suzane’s facebook.

99 barbie brides, soo soo is finally 21, and my last day of work with a bit of Thai spice

Finally I am finding the time to update my blog.

Truth is, I have some overdue drafts that I had been meaning to post but am just too lazy. Maybe I have lost the interest in blogging already. Plus, my English has been in the pits lately too. My so-called resolution to read lots of fictions during the hols to improve my English, has sadly, not been well-accomplished. Haih...

Anyway, I have some photos of stuff I did during my previous sem break. Yeah, I know, this post is so loooong overdue already.

#1: Barbie exhibition

I followed my Mom to Mid Valley one Sunday, because she wanted to buy some new working heels. The ones she was currently wearing was giving her a "backache" or so she claims.

After going to so many shoe shops, she finally chose one that she likes at Scholl. Also, there was a sale that day for Jusco Members so she got them at 15% discount.

On that said day, Mid Valley had an exhibition of 99 Barbie dolls, dressed in wedding gowns and adorned with real jewelry! I forgot the name of that jewelry shop that organised the exhibition...hehe...anyway, here are a few snapshots that i took...

Despite how childish Barbie dolls are, I do think they are quite pretty, no?

#2: Soo Ee's 21st birthday dinner.

On 3rd July 2009, I went to Kaki Korner @ Taman Billion for a BF dinner to commemorate Soo Ee's birthday (the youngest girl in my Form 6 class). She is now doing Manufacturing Engineering at UM.

This is the last BF gathering I went to before returning to UKM. Am glad that I went...good to chat and eat with some of the best company ever.

The captions are in the photos since there are quite a lot (and I am lazy). Thanks to Ah Len for doing such a great thing, for Soo Soo and for us.

Rebecca made an appearance! Rarely get to see "the chatty nurse" Hehe...:D

Those that came minus Jino, who came super late.

Jino called Rebecca "Stephanie"...LMAO...

#3: Special dinner at Thai Restaurant.

Some of you may know that I worked at my mom's office for a month during my previous sem break. So to celebrate my last day of work and lots of hard work for my mom's department, she brought me to this splendid Thai restaurant (the name has escaped me) situated at Wisma Antarabangsa, opposite Menara Dion, where my office is at.

Needless to say the food was absolutely delicous and top-notch Thai dishes. I ate to my hearts' content. Seriously, the best Thai food ever eaten!

My favourite is def the red curry. It tastes so so so good ;)
