saengil chukha hamnida 생일축하합니다

Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) highlights:
*Noona seducing Nichkhun 2PM....darn I am so jealous:(


I turn 22 years old today, on the 22nd November. Cool right? Also, this blogs turns 2 years old today as well. Lots of twos in my life today.

My birthday being so late, almost at the end of the year has its pros and cons. Pros being that I am usually always younger than others born in 1987. LOL. But now that in uni, there are so many 88'ers, I guess it does not make any difference anymore.

My birthday being so late also signifies a time of reflection, unlike early in the year, when it signifies hope and resolutions (for me). A time of reflection, to me, usually means looking back at what had happened in the year so far and what I have done.

This year is one significant one as well. Most notably, I think, the biggest moment in 2009 for me, has been the demise of a wonderful friend. Gary, I really miss you bro.

It was also an absolutely busy year in terms of studies. There were many times that I just want to give up, because of the overwhelming stress. It is still a struggle for me until now, to fight those inner demons.

It was also a year of obsession with youtube and online shopping. My addiction to youtube stems from my addiction to firstly, the Boys Over Flowers korean drama and secondly, from my current love for 2PM, korean beast idols boyband. And yes, I have finally venture into the world of online shopping and it was not bad, although there are many bumps along the way. Will I do it again? Yes, of course but not for the time being, as I want to learn to be frugal.

The year 2009 has been a good year for lots of trips with my UKM friends. First Penang with Pharmacy gang, then Sarawak with housemates + roommates. Also, there might be another trip with housemates again when next sem starts. Will update in blog when that time comes.

Before this, my birthday has always been about presents. But lately, I don't know if it is the age issue, I feel happy and satisfied even with smses and birthday wishes on facebook. I guess it is true that it is the thought that counts. To know that I am not the only one who realizes today is my birthday brings a smile to my face. Old friends, new friends, I am so happy for all the birthday wishes. Most of all, I am glad that I am alive and well to treasure each and every birthday wish I received. At the end of the day, I must say, as cliche as it sounds, when you lose someone in the same age range as you puts life in a whole new perspective.

Although last year my birthday was on a much grand scale compared to this year, I am still satisfied. Like it or not, actually I don't like the fuss of having a huge birthday celebration. Haha. I am so getting

Okay, I am having writer's block already, so I guess I will end it here.

[delayed updates] food galore: of second times

Holiday mode: On

Morning: Go online
Afternoon: Nap till evening
Night: Watch TV

A life like this, I wonder how long will last. LOL.


I have not been updating my blog with much photos lately. I decided to delayed any blogging because I was in the midst of my exam preparations. And after my exams were done, I was just too lazy at home to even start blogging. Lol. Yes, that is the truth, I am really lazy. I guess my worst traits are probably my procrastination and my hot temper (especially when I am not in the mood). *Sigh*

I have been wanting to post these photos for a long time now. These are photos of food galore taken way back in September. LOL. I am glad I finally decided to blog about them.

And yes, my laptop has been reformatted (is this right? it feels wrong) AGAIN. This is the 3rd time already. The previous times were because of virus attacks. I was a lot more careful after that when it comes to downloading, however, I forgot that my hardware can also get "konked" off. Haih... So I had to replace the hard disk. All my programs are gone, including Picasa, hence I cannot edit my photos as easily as before.

#1: Dinner at Taman Rashna Chinese Restaurant.

My aunt decided to treat the family for dinner here. It is always fun when my aunt treats us for dinner because she has good taste in food. Lol. So, the food is undeniably great. I have actually been to this restaurant here before, for my late Grand Uncle's 60th birthday. The food in this place is really good but it is really far, all the way in Klang.

Yummy appetizers for headstart

Great shark fin, taste even better with vinegar ;)

Curry fish head, always a dish favored by my family

This is actually a pork dish placed in pumpkin bowls. I joked with my cousins that we can eat the bowls so the staff don't have to wash them. LOL.

#2: Max @ iHaus, Imbi

This is also my 2nd time here. Honestly speaking, there is really nothing nice to eat in Bukit Bintang area except for this place here. The first time, I did not bring my camera so I was not able to capture pictures of this place. This time around, I did not forget my trusty camera.

The name of the restaurant is quite peculiar. German, perhaps?

The interior. Mom and I sat in a secluded spot so I was not able to capture good angles of the place. I like the first pic, it was inside the secluded spot, where we sat.

Mom and I, before our meals arrived

We ordered the set lunch. Hehe. Ala carte was too pricey for lunch anyways.

Cauliflower cream soup with olive oil

Salad dish with smoked duck breast

I like this. Really pretty. It was a fish fillet dish with potatoes

Pasta dish. The sauce is heavenly.

The place looks like one of those old huge mansions at Imbi

#3: Family Mooncake dinner

On this day, it was quite funny because my cousin had a car problem and my uncle had to go get him. So we waited for them both before we can start dinner. LOL.

Scrumptious dishes from my aunt and uncle

Homemade mooncakes: One with coconut gratings inside and another one with sesame snow skin

My favorite is definitely the jelly mooncakes. So yummy!!! Red bean, corn, cheese and mango ;)

Random pic: My cousin sister has a thing for collecting all things cute. This is her mini food collection. I think they are so adorable...

lazy hazy days of holidays

ye~ the final sem break is finally here.

I cannot believe this sem has already ended. Next sem is nightmare, no wait, more like hell.

What a sem it has been. So much happening, so little time.

My laptop got spoilt (and fixed). My mp3 player got spoilt (and fixed). My external hard disk and bag got lost (and found).

It was also a sad sem as my dear friend passed away. I miss my friend dearly.

I have so much things I want to do this break. What is even better is I am not going to work at all this sem. Yes! I am just gonna be a couch potato.

I have so much to blog and post pics. Of many birthdays, and also my post-exams activities. I went to a anime cosplay event at times square yesterday.

I also watched all the episodes of Idol Army Season 3 with 2PM in just 3 days!!! Woo-hoo. But sadly, ep 10 is missing eng subs. *Sigh*

I am so excited with 2PM's comeback....*glees*

To make this sem break seem a lot more memorable than my previous ones, I am going to record what I do every day this holiday. This is my Project record my 43 days of holidays...hehe...I wonder if I will be able to keep it up.

i miss blogging and 2PM!!!

I know, I have been absent from my blog since my study week. Exams season are like hell season here in university life. Even my face has been much neglected. *Sigh*...pimples and eczema have been plaguing me like mad.

One sad thing is sob sob, my laptop is spoilt once again, so sad lar. So now I am laptop-less. Have to rely on my roommate's and housemate's laptop to go online.

This exam weeks, I have been crazy with K-pop, always checking out latest singer's news and updates. LOL. Probably need to release some stress, I guess.

2PM has just released their new album and mv lately. I am so happy for their return, I missed the boys a lot. But Jaebum is not with them this time. (T.T) I wish he will be back soon. 2PM feels weird with one member less.

My last paper is tomorrow. At this point, I am so un-motivated to study anymore. Probably because I cannot wait for it all to be over soon.

Yeah, one last thing. My housemates managed to snatch tickets to Macau, the free seats Air Asia bonanza that started at 1am. Finally we managed to book those difficult to get RM0.00 tickets. Only RM75 both ways to Macau. Not bad le?

But I will be going to Macau also this holidays. Haha. And to Hong Kong as well with my Mom. I can't hardly wait.

Well, wish me luck as I study for one last time for PC paper tomorrow at 8.30am.

Support 2PM...go watch their new mv "Heartbeat" on youtube. I have already posted the link on my facebook.

I don't know when will I be able to update soon. Hopefully my laptop can return to me safe and sound soon.

Until then, Sakae Sushi with babi sia on 13th and comic convention on 14th....yeay so excited for holidays to start!!!!!
