my lips...warm like coffee...

I really like this song, "My Lips...Warm Like Coffee" by S#harp after hearing After School performed in on Music has been replayed so many times in my head already...

Dear young girl,

I hope that one day, you will laughed at all that had happened...
He is young but so are you
He doesn't know what he wants but I know you do
Which is why I hope you understand why everyone has been saying that you deserve better
I have no experience when it comes to love and relationships
All I can say is that there is so much more to life than falling in love and being in relationships
You don't need a boyfriend to survive in life
You need a good head, a strong heart
Take your time and I hope that you will not cling on to him anymore
The more you want to be with him, the more he pushes you away
This is all part & parcel of life
You will not understand it now, but once you are my age, maybe you will
I am not saying I am a pro in this kind of thing...
But this is just my one cent opinion

silver lining in a cloud

Today is the worst day ever...

Today is the worst day ever...

Today would have been the worst day ever...

If not for some instances that showed me that there can be some good despite all the bad.

Everytime I go back home for the weekends, I have to carry loads and loads of stuff, since I do my laundry at my own home. Besides that, I also carry my laptop back and also my notes. Every single time, I carry all these heavy stuff from A-5-5 all the way to the car park. Never once has anyone (except my housemates) offered to help me. Not that I expect them to, since they are strangers anyway. And I don't mean as in help me carry my stuff, because I preferred carrying my own stuff anyway. But I mean as in helping me to open the door, or help me press the lift would be quite helpful considering my hands are full. But yeah, no one has ever done it. They just stare at me carrying my heavy loads and that is it.

But today, a kind lady actually helped me open the door to the parking lot after I got out of the lift. Mind you, she wasn't anywhere near the door because she was also waiting for the lift. But she went out of her way, walked to the front door and opened it for me. For that, I am so grateful. Not only because she did a small favor for me, but make me have a little hope that there is some good people out there.

Also, I absolutely hate it when people don't help to press the "open" button when they see people getting into the lift. Especially guys. So damn un-gentlemanly of them. Even worse was the fact that I know at least 2 guys who have done this sort of ignorant thing. I won't reveal the name, but yeah, they are from UKM and not third-years. I am just so disappointed in them, because I actually thought they were better than that.

Another unfortunate thing that happened to me today is that I left my mp3 player in my class, BSH5. I was a little sleepy and blur today because I had to stayed back until 3pm for seminar. I guess I forgot to keep back my mp3 player after using it.

I was on facebook when a friend tagged me in a photo. I opened the link to the photo and lo and behold, I saw my mp3 player case in the pic. It is written at the bottom that whoever owns the mp3 player please called XXXX. OMG, I did not even know I lost it until I saw that pic.

I am really glad my coursemates are the one who found it and put in effort to find the owner. I am so happy that my coursemates are so honest.

Actually, I have never seen so many theft cases until I came to UKM. My stuff has gone missing before, wallet and handphone - taken by some stupid bastard who had no intention of returning them to me. Also, some of my good friends' belongings were stolen from the library.

It is such a privilege to be able to be accepted into a university. One would expect people with good results, who are educated, can get a place in here. But some of this trash, this uneducated scum are willing to sell off other people's stuff just to gain money. I honestly am so disappointed in their parents, for raising such monsters. I hope one day, they get the punishment that they deserved.

That is the end of my post. Today, although has not been a smooth-sailing day but I want to thank the kind lady at the lift and my coursemates for making this day much more bearable for me. Thank you. Kamsahamnida ;)

today is january 21st 2010…

I am so bored of looking at my notes so I am procrastinating them to have a little update…I know, habits are hard to change, but I need to make effort to change my procrastinating habits soon…


Today is also the day of 2AM’s comeback. Yay. I have been waiting for their comeback since last year. Although they are not as popular as 2PM, but seriously their voices are so sweet and melodious. I admit, I was not that interested in them initially because I am not big fans of Korean ballad groups but after watching them in variety shows, 2AM has definitely garnered my interest. Seulong is not only tall and good-looking but he is so funny;)

And of course their leader Jo Kwon, whom I was already a fan of but became obsessed recently with his show, We Got Married. In it, Jo Kwon and Ga-In of Brown Eyed Girls act as a fake marriage couple. It is kind of like a reality show and he is so funny. But I think he has multiple personalities because sometimes he can be so cute, so brave and also so charismatic at times. He never fails to make me laugh during every episode. I wish he and Ga-In can end up together for real ~~!!!

By the way, I totally recommend their songs and their latest album. Their voices are great. **Click on the pic above to be directed to the downloads**


Another album I have been listening and loving to lately is new indie band CN Blue’s. Again, I was not interested in them because Korean indie bands is not really my thing. I like watching pop bands dance and wear weird outfits. Lol.

But of course, if you have watched the K-drama, “You’re Beautiful” then you would probably know that one of the members in this band plays the role of SHIN-WOO Hyung. Shin-woo is not my favourite character (I am fan of Tae-kyung~!) but I think this band really surprises me. Their songs are not bad at all. **Click on the pic above to be directed to the downloads**


Again, I find myself shopping to release stress. Another bad habit of mine, I sometimes buy stuff on impulse. I know I already have a collection of 2PM socks but I just cannot resist buying another pair. This time is leader Jaebeom. Sigh, I really wish he will come back to 2PM soon!!! ***Click on the pic to see my collection of socks***


I love buying necklaces lately. Here is the latest I bought. It is actually a cheap-looking necklace but I think I took a good shot of it kan? Not bad with my digital camera…kekekeke…I like this pic a lot…

I have been updating my other blog too. The shopping-oriented one. With CNY coming, I have gone into shopping frenzy for new clothes. But sad thing is that my mid-semester exams fall just before CNY so I cannot really spend too much time going out to shop.

All the clothes I bought recently are cheap stuff from flea markets but I still love them all the same. I am really excited for CNY and for more shopping!!! Are you?

singapore part II: lost for a while looking for chinatown


The next morning we packed our belongings and took the MRT to Chinatown. However upon arrival, we realized we are at Chinatown Point the shopping mall (which had pretty cool Garfield-theme Xmas decor, btw)…


So we pulled out our most trusty map in search of Chinatown. I forgot how did we get our directions but later on, we decided to walk down the main road.


Along the way, I saw some really beautiful old architecture buildings. I think it was a hotel (?)

5 6

Finally we found Chinatown! kekekeke…it was totally serendipity actually. Collection of photos I took of the old Chinese buildings in Chinatown…


We had our breakfast in here too. I ordered curry laksa but they had assam laksa noodles. Very tasty although a bit pricey. They had 3 sizes…small, medium and large. Lol.

7 8

After that, it was walking around the streets. Of course it was a hot day so Clara took out her Esprit umbrella.

9 15

We mostly shop for souvenirs here. There were so many shops selling all kinds of pretty & colourful souvenirs. And also, did not miss chance to cam-whore ;)


Then we headed back to the MRT station for our next destination. Before that, we had a little fun with Gwyneth’s billboard. kekekeke…

Suzane & Clara imitating Singapore’s pride & joy, Phua Chu Kang & Rosie Phua…did they do a good job?


Our next station…can you guess where we were heading? I will reveal in my next post…^^

singapore part I: 10 hours train ride + orchard rd

Singapore trip: 25th and 26th December 2009 with Beng Beng, Suzane, Wei Wei, Ngiik Ling and Mei Chen. All photos credited to me, BB and Suzane’s camera. For more pics, go to the “all-useful” Facebook.


Our journey started early AM in KL Sentral as we await for our KTM train to Singapore. Why train? I guess we wanted to try something different rather than always taking the bus for our travels. Although the train is a lot more comfortable than bus, but it actually takes longer because it makes many stops along the many stations from KL –> Singapore.

The guide map is basically, our Spore trip planner. It is our Bible, you can say. We never leave anywhere without it.


Clara & me. It was mostly snooze time all the way to Spore. And music of course, thanks so much to my trusty mp3 player for helping me survive the boredom.

02 03

Sadly, all is not smooth as our train’s engine broke down somewhere in Johor (?). We were like stuck in the middle of nowhere. While waiting for the replacement engine, we walked outside for some village air.

To fill in the one hour wait, we walked around and later settled for card game “cho tai di”.

We finally arrived at Tanjong Pagar @ Spore approx. 7PM…

04 05

I love taking the MRT in Spore because it is so efficient and so fast. You don’t have to wait a long time for the next train. No wonder the MRT stations are always packed with people. Not only is the train super quick, so are the escalators. I was so nervous the first time around because the escalator’s speed is so unlike KL’s.


06 Our first stop is to Orchard Road. Because our train was delayed, when we got there, the whole place was packed with people and we missed the Christmas Parade too. T.T

07 08

My first impression of Orchard Rd, besides the sea of people there, is the fact that there so many shopping malls. Seriously, they are all clustered together like a residential area or something. Not sure how many are there as we walked down the road.

09 12

We had our dinner in Wisma Atria’s food court. And took photos at Paragon’s Xmas tree.


We are all red, thanks to laser lights from a show that was going on.

10 14

Cute Xmas reindeers decorated the street. Although I wanted to take photos of all, it was quite hard due to many people also having the same intentions.

11 13

There were also Xmas parade boats in the road. Clara pulling out her cheesy “Heartbeat” pose. 2nd pic is me with this cool Ferrero Rocher Xmas tree.

15 01

My roommates imitating the statue. And 2nd pic are us along the busy Xmas decorated Orchard Rd.

02 03

Sia's imitation of the billboard. 2nd pic is one of those rare group photos. It was so disorganized, really.

04 After tired not only from our 10 hour train ride but also from walking, we treated ourselves to ice-cream wrapped in sandwich wafers. Tasted good but so messy. kekeke…


Finally we decided to head back to Asphodel Inn at Little India, where we were staying. Nearby is City Square Mall. We made a short pit stop there to take pics and play around with the carriage. If you pedal hard enough, the lights will lit up.


My roommates. Our room is pretty small but I guess due to tiredness, we did not think too much and just went off to dreamland…
