First up, big congrats to all my friends who are graduating this year. I am sorry I cannot make it to your convocations due to my packed schedule of classes. Finally, the day you all have been waiting for. All the best in your next embark;)
Seriously, these two weeks have been a whirlwind for me. Almost every day I find myself going out until my impending notes are accumulating like mad. Since it is the new semester, there has been lots of orientation activities with the juniors. It is the last time we, as seniors, will get a chance to know our juniors. This year is definitely a great improvement compared to last year’s orientation. At least this year juniors can remember our names and vice versa.
There have been a lot of going out as well. Already I went out to watch four movies since coming back to UKM. Three of those, I went with coursemates. There have been a great deal of birthdays as well. So many that I am sorry if I forgot to wish anyone. Here are some photos I took of 2 birthdays I had a chance to be part of the celebration – Benjamin’s and Tze Im’s.
More photos *HERE* from Ben's camera!
On a Friday, I went to a former VI classmate’s new house for his birthday. I think this is the first time I get invited for Ben’s birthday. It is also the year he graduated. For some who may have read “The Sun” newspaper might have spotted Ben on the front page. He has gotten the very prestigious Royal Degree Award from UM. Congrats Ben!!!
Anyway, I apologized for the lack of photos, including the group photo. Every time I am with the BF gang, I just end up talking more than taking photos. I hope someone will post the rest of the photos up soon. So here are some of the best ones I took:
Ben’s lovely birthday cupcakes. The pro thing about this is its uniqueness and the fact you don’t have to cut it as you can just pass the cupcakes around to each person. The con? The fact that you have to blow all around the cupcakes. Kekekeke. Ben was funny when his head went around blowing the candles. The cupcake was super yummy. Love love the icing;)

After some time of not able to watch movies due to my busy life in HUKM, it has been a full swing of watching lots of new movies since coming back to UKM. The first week itself, watched “Knight and Day” with Clara and Carolyn.
Last Monday, I went to the new shopping mall nearby Setapak – Wangsa Walk. Went there with Clara, Ganby and yS. First time going out with these 2 boys and they are really funny together. Like small kids. Boys will be boys, I supposed. Anyway, we watched “Sorcerer’s Apprentice” starring veteran Nicholas Cage and Jay Baruchel. Love the whole magic and fantasy aspect of the movie but I think the storyline is a little bland. Still, not bad for a Disney movie. Sugar and spice type of recipe for this movie.
During the weekends, I accompanied Mom to watch “Inception” at Leisure Mall. Rarely I have time to watch movies with my Mom since classes started. So I am glad that we finally had the chance to catch this flick. Overall, this is definitely my favourite movie of all time. It has a star-studded cast of some of my favourite actors – Leonardo Dicaprio, Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (I miss him so much since seeing him on “Third Rock From The Sun” and “Ten Things I Hate About You”. The storyline is simply awesome. I love how Christopher Nolan manipulates the idea of dreams and design this whole system of extracting dreams and modifying it. How cool it would be to enter a dream with your friends. Must-watch movie especially to dreamers like me whose favourite hobby is sleeping;)
On Sunday night, after McD gathering with juniors, Clara, yS and me went to Wangsa Walk to catch Angelina Jolie’s new movie, “Salt”. I think she is a great actress although I disliked her for a while due to her relationship controversy. The first few minutes of the movie, I thought it was really dull and predictable. I mean, it’s not uncommon to see another cat-and-mouse chase movie. But after that, as the story unfolds that Evelyn Salt is not who we thought she was, I started to get pull into the movie. Overall, great action movie. Yup, watch it for the special effects, not really about the story. I am surprised at the end of the movie, it seems to me that Clara actually understood the movie more than yS did. Maybe I underestimated her at times;)
