I DIDN'T CRY!

An accomplishment, I must say... Went for my last gathering for the year, which is Fangi's birthday gathering at her house... I brought fried chicken, which WASN'T fried by me, i'm not that good at cooking.... was pretty alright at first until Wei Yi started tearing when we talked about college... Managed to take control of my tear ducts, or else the jelly on my plate would be salty instead of sweet... After a huge lunch and much laughter (and one broken chair) we adjourned to the living room where we dissected the love lives of some very unfortunate friends, namely Lyn, Fangi, Celine and Melissa.... Was quite a gathering actually, so many of us just eating and laughing away... Not forgetting the ever present photo session...

Oh, we got our Christmas presents today, a little late i know... I have one thing to say: I LOVE CELINE AND FANGI EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE LIARS WHO ACCUSED ME OF SUPPORTING THE CHEENA MUSIC INDUSTRY BECAUSE THEY GOT ME SOMETHING ON MY LIST!!!!!!!!!!! I seriously love them, though not in the lesbian sort of way... Still can't believe they (along with Nick) got me Kenji's latest album! Haven't listened to it, coz my radio's all packed already... Will have to wait till the day i move in, so Lyn and Dee better be mentally prepared... other great presents received also include :
1. "The Purpose Driven Life" from Jayne, which will fill up my time with useful insights of life... Though i cannot help but wonder what is she hinting by giving me that book...

2. A handphone pouch from Wei Yi which is...pink. Will most probably use it not to put my handphone but my MP3 player...

3. A watch from Tasha, which is also...pink. She bought everyone (except Stef) the same watch, but in different colours, so everyone can be sychronised... Yay!

Am leaving for KL in approximately 9 hours, Mom and Kit are not coming up with me coz Kit's regristration for Form 1 is on the 2nd... Mom has given talk on the do's and don'ts when in college, even though she knows i know... Probably just obligated to give the talk... Everyone else is behaving like normal, cept Kit who says "Bye" to me every hour as well as to everyone in the family... Supposedly he's preparing for the day HE leaves... Right...

Finally my stuff is all packed, after days of packing... Am appalled by the number of bags, looks like i'll have to enlist the help of ALL my cousins to move them up five floors of stairs... God, i'm going to miss everyone here, especially my family and close pals, althpugh some will be joining me in Taylor's next year... Sniff sniff

Looks like this will be my last post in JB for quite a while since i'm not coming back for Chinese New Year... I promise to blog regularly though even when in college, so don't worry my loyal fans!! haha...

P.S. Would like to say SORRY to Celine for whacking her so hard when i unwrapped the present... I hope it doesn't hurt anymore... Sorry babe...

This song was in my head the whole evening... Quite appropriate, cept the jet plane part, i'm not that lucky...

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go
I'm standing here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye

But the dawn is breaking, it's early morn
The taxi's waiting, he's blowing his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go

Cause I'm leaving on a jetplane
I don't know when I'll be back agaon
Oh, babe, I hate to go

it's just 2 more days till i go up to KL, just about packed everything except my laptop (which my brothers are reluctant to say goodbye to) and my radio (i'm still listening to it) which will only be packed the day i leave... Have got 6 (small) bags full of things, which Dad was suprised at... I'm a bit suprised i have that much stuff too, i started out only wanting to bring 2 bags up but kept adding more things... At this rate i'll be bringing my bed up! Must stop putting stuff in already...

Went out today (again) with Cel and Xuan Hao who bought us iced chocolate from Starbucks... Was walking around before that and we met Lingesh or Cel's papa, who was going for lunch with a certain someone... ended up at Starbicks for like 2 hours talking about next year and keeping a look-out while Cel did, uh, something there (can't say here lest people use as proof) to remember something... Was also people watching when there, like the apek who was just sleeping away on the chair while his companion had a doughnut which seemed to have been sprinkled with magic powder since it was huge... Remembered what my brother said about the tables being useful for playing chess, with the squares and all so told the 3 of them... Went out and guess what? 2 guys were playing chess there, but not using the above-mentioned tables...
Funny... After that went to Body Shop to kacau the many Convent girls working there and to irritate Lingesh, since he went for lunch with someone working there... Had to leave after that, so got ride from Xuan Hao... Was suprised my mom let me, since she had that rule about me not getting a ride from someone who has not been driving for more than a year except Se Von... Am still alive and kicking and in one piece anyway...

Not gonna post much, have got not much to say... Dad's back, by the way... So people calling me please do not be alarmed upon hearing a male voice okay?

Tell me her name
I want to know
The way she looks
And where you go
I need to see her face
I need to understand
Why you and I came to an end

Tell me again
I want to hear
Who broke my faith in all these years
Who lays with you at night
When I'm here all alone
Remembering when I was your own

I'll let you go
I'll let you fly
Why do I keep on asking why
I'll let you go
Now that I've found
A way to keep somehow
More than a broken vow

this post is just for me to complain about my suay-ness... Emphasis for the suay-ness topic is one of my top favourite singers: Kenji Wu Ke Qun

many might not know him, and i am not going to explain lest Celine accuse me of supporting cheena music industry again (if only a had a dollar each time she said that...) so my advice to people who want to know him is: Google him, listen to his songs. Simple as that...

Now, what i really want to complain about is why i always seem to come thisclose to seeing him but never do... So far, it's been 7 times over a period of 9 months (6 times happened this month)...
let me be a little more specific...

let me first explain when i first got to know about this singer. it was when an advertisment appeared on Singaporean telly promoting his new album... the only thing that went through my mind when watching the advertisment was that he never smiled in it and it was quite dark, which made it hard for me to see how he looked. Oh, and i pitied the guy since he had to be slapped many many many times for one of his mv's...

1st miss: He came to Plaza Pelangi to perform for Red Box. Performace started at 7 pm. I was there at Popular around 6 pm. 7 pm and he started singing, and i caught a glimpse : good-looking!! Sounds pretty good too... Was about to make my way there to catch more of his performance when i got dragged away by Dad to have dinner at Hyatt... Was then that i started liking this singer...

2nd miss: happened in Taiwan on my trip there... Channel V was having the V Power Concert and he was one of the performers there... Concert was being shown live on tv at 3 pm but i was out...

3rd miss: repeat of the V Power Concert at 12 am the next day. Could not catch as was too tired to stay awake...

4th miss: repeat of concert again at 3 pm the same day as the 3rd miss but was out coz Dad brought us to bookstores... Came back around 7 and concert was still on except his performance had already ended...

5th miss: Came back from Taiwan on the 21st and found out through my 8 Days magazine that he performed at some charity show on Channel 8 on Sunday

6th miss: Heard from Fangi that he was in JB two days before i got back. Obviously could not catch him unless i could split in two and one came back early...

7th miss: he's making an appearance on some Taiwanese show which is airing on Channel U next Saturday. which is the 31st of December. which is the day i move up to KL. where i cannot receive Singaporean channels. 100+ channels on Astro but no Singaporean channel.

Could it get any worse?

Thankfully, there will be a repeat of that charity show tomorrow at 3 pm. Am going to watch it at Lyn's housewarming, i dun care. If i dun get to see him, i WILL scream. I dun care that there's going to be 100+ guests at her place, I WILL SCREAM.

Everyone pray i see him.
Bloody Merry Christmas to me!

Sorry in advance to anyone who has that Christmas spirit in them and got that spirit trashed/kicked/burned/washed down the toilet/sent out into outer space and never coming back until 365 days later after reading this post of mine...

To be totally honest, I am not in the mood to celebrate this holiday... Maybe it's the sad songs i've been listening to this few days, maybe it's the weather (30 degrees Celsius minimum is NOT how i want to spend Christmas), or maybe it's the thought that after Christmas i will be 6 days away from moving out of my house, 8 days from moving into the apartment and 10 days away from starting college... of course, i;m not going to do the whole Christmas-is-overrated or behave like that Scrooge guy (i can't spell his name, sue me!) in the popular story (the title has left me), i'm just going to sleep in for the day then have fun at Lyn's housewarming party (wine should help!)

I'm almost done packing my stuff for college, but more things are being added, so at this rate i will be using a truck to bring my things up to KL... despite all the packing my room is still as messy as usual, if not worse... Even with the packing almost done i still can't really believe i'm going to be in college... I'm not going to go as far as to say i can still remember the day i started primary school, because i have no recollection of that day except i was in last class... I have a feeling i'll cry my first night there (reminder to self: get tissue first) and be laughed at by my roommates for being a crybaby (i'm not, by the way, i was 2nd last to cry on my last day at school). Oh well...

Note to everyone who sees this : Just because I'm not in the mood to celebrate DOES NOT mean you people can cross me out on your list this year, i still expect presents! especially since i got all of you something (sorry, didn't get anything for you Dennis! want a sticker?), even gave out the presents already... I expect presents to be handed out to me when i see you people k? Haha, i know i'm weird...

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye
Tell me baby
Do you recognize me?
Well, it's been a year
It doesn't suprise me

Merry Christmas
I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying I love you
I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now
I know you'd fool me again

Ahhh, it's good to be back!! After one week in cold cold Taiwan, it certainly feels good to be home again.. though the weather needs some getting used to again... Am not going to talk about my trip to Taiwan, too tired to do so, here's a summary : Cold, dry, lots of mountains, walked a lot, bought loads of things... For more information, you can either talk to me or go figure... Have fun filling in the blanks...

Went out to Singapore today with Celine, Fangi, Lyn and Wei Yi... Had tons of fun, window shopping (no windows involved though), people watching (like that lady we were following and guessing how she looked like), Reliving our second childhood (with help from Tigger), even on the MRT (sorry, i've never been on one, was having fun tapping the card!). In the end, i only bought one orange shirt from Samuel & Kevin, Lyn has the same one but in grey... Must make sure we don't wear it at the same time, or else everyone will mistake us for twins...

Have gotten almost everyone's Christmas presents, even gave some out already, namely Lyn and Celine... Bought most of the presents in Taiwan, since there's isn't much time for me to get them after i get back... Got Fangi a book, Jayne something... uh, hard to explain without saying the actual thing... Bought Celine a Tigger plush toy ( actually she made me buy it) and bought Lyn a cute note holder and stickers... Have tons of stickers by the way, first come first served basis to choose...

When i was chatting with U Xinn just now, he asked me a very funny question... He asked me whether i swear and whether i smoke... So here's the answer, the longer and more detailed version: I swear like a sailor. I swear when i'm mad, when i hurt myself, when i embarrass myself, which is quite often... although what i usually swear is the same few words, placed in different parts of the sentence to give different results... i will not insert these words in here for the sake of anyone who's too innocent and for my sake, since my dad reads my blog (am going to be in trouble...)

As for the smoking part, it's a definite NO... I have to say, the TAK NAK campaigns at the very least worked on me, so did the Singapore advertisments where they cut up some smoker's brain and it had blood clots in them... I hereby promise i will never NEVER ever smoke, feel free to kill me if i do... The closest i will ever get to cigarette is when purchasing chewing gum at 7-11...

U Xinn also advised me not to crumble (okay, he didn't use that word) under peer pressure and try these things... I can only say: I don't swear because i felt pressure from my friends, i think i'm the one influencing them (Lyn can attest to this). As for the smoking part, close friends can serve as witnesses that i cough even upon smelling perfume... Perfume!!! What's the possibility of me smoking?

So there... Now just have to get him to read this.

Just gonna say very little, since i've nothing much to say because i did nothing much today and i've posted like everyday since i finished my exams... Woke up around 9 this morning, was supposed to go to Singapore but plan got cancelled... Instead went out with mom to open a bank account for me, feels weird to have an atm card now... Then went to the Store for a while to shop since parking coupon was for an hour, had lunch there also because was waiting for cobbler to fix shoes and my bag... In the end the guy didn't finish repairing, so we have to go back tomorrow morning, such a waste of time...

Was very hot outside when i came back, plus i was really full from lunch so i was very very sleepy... Wanted to take a nap but had to help mom decide what to bring to Taiwan, she thinks it's absurd that the 4 of us are going there for a week but have packed like we're staying for a month in Antartica... Okay, she didn't exactly say that, but i know that's what she was thinking :)

After helping mom was close to 2 already, decided to go watch my brothers play PlayStation 2 and maybe get them to let me play The Sims but instead fell asleep till 5 pm when brothers started shouting at each other to kill Liu Bei in ROTK game... Guys, what can i say... Anyway, got to play my game for a while before dinner, mom forced them to take their bath...

That just about rounds up what i did today, pretty boring right? I know...

Sunday, December 11, 2005

Yay! Am going to Singapore tomorrow!!! Muahahahaha... Oops, just revealed tail, must cover at once...

After 2 days of rest I am back on my feet to enjoy myself, though feet have not completely recovered... Went for Undang talk today, but didn't fall asleep as had very funny instructors... note the word instructors, as had two conducting the talk today... First was this guy named Bakeri, which, as he himself told us, is pronounced bakery in English, which makes him bread... second guy was qiute scary at first, commenting on the discipline and how some of us were wearing our younger sister's shirt... I would very much like to point out that i DO NOT have a younger sister and it's very rare for me to actually find a shirt i don't drown in alright? So there... But he was pretty funny too, kept going on about "nasib" and kept reminding us that he was already married... Right...

Good news was that Celine was with us today!! Missed her A LOT when she was holidaying in Hokkaido... She brought something back for me (Woohoo!!!) as my Christmas present, so I can't have it yet... Derrick or affectionately known as jie fu to some and Daddy to one was there too, so Fangi, Cel and I tried to keep our distance from the lovebirds.... Didn't work by the way...

Came home only around 6 as transportation only arrived at 5 plus and there were 6 others in the van to send home... Fell asleep for a while in the van, but managed to not lean on anyone or embarrass myself, since i was between 2 people i did not know... Phew!

Not going to carry on blabbering, since most of the people reading this either went with me or have gone for it, even passed it (98% oh?) already when i have merely attended the talk... gotta pack my bag for tomorrow anyway... Did i mention i'm going to Singapore? I think i did... haha

New Skin

Have decided to change my blogskin since i've had the purple Japanese-girl-carrying basket-filled-with-something one for quite while... Fell in love woth this one the minute i saw it, it's got tons of stars and it is so so so so cute! okay, i don't think it'a appropriate for someone to comment on their own blog that way, so i'll stop now :)

Didn't do much today, woke up around 9, which is pretty early considering i slept very late last night... Early this morning actually, was watching TV till 1 plus last night with mom who couldn't sleep... Am supposed to pack my stuff for Taiwan trip, a little early i know... Just gonna start packing the clothes i won't be wearing these few days... People not wanting to know what clothes i own can scroll down to the next paragraph... It's gonna be cold cold cold so i'll have to pack my long-sleeved shirts (which i don't have many off, it's bloody insane to wear that in Malaysia, no?) and sweaters, most of which is handed down from my cousin in KL...

Right, enough about that, i don't think anyone wants to know what i'm packing unless they are volunteering to pack mu suitcase for me... Anyone? Haha, Elton John will be straight before anyone would help me...

Nothing much to say, am gonna stop here before i start boring you kind people who actually read my blog... Do tag k?

PS Cut my hair yesterday, about 4 inches got chopped off... Now hair is short and keeps getting into mouth when wind blows... Might highlight hair soon, yay!!

Celebrations

More celebrations today, involving 4 girls who found it boring to stay at home, no guys whatsoever (except Dennis, but only for 5 minutes) and one movie... For those who find And again i went out today, not for window shopping but to watch Narnia which was out today... actually yesterday couldn't be counted as window shopping since i did end up buying a shirt, a pair of shoes, a bag, nail polish, and others... and there were no windows involved at all, since i don't think most of the shops in City Square have windows... just open holes in the wall for you to walk through, but very few windows... Or maybe i didn't notice them, like many other things...

Went out with Lyn, Fangi and Hema to watch the new Narnia movie... pretty good movie, the effects were very realistic... plus peter was pretty good-looking, and aslan as very very cute.... haha, you'll have to watch it to know who they are... or i guess you can read the book, like i did when i was nine, which is why i couldn't remember anything about it... the movie was really worth it, being so interesting and over 2 hours too...

After the movie we walked over to Kotaraya for Hema to do her henna by who else but Jasveen who was taking over for her cousin... Only Hema managed to get hers done, Jas was too busy helping a lady whois getting married tomorrow...

After a day of walking, my feet hurt. Not the usual tired kind, but blisters have currently emerged on the back of my heel as i was breaking in my new shoes... would show you the picture of my new cute little shoes but the picture takes too long to upload... i guess to see it you'll have to ask me out and ask me to wear them... tee hee...

Not going out tomorrow, the first time this week... Am gonna start packing for Taiwan trip as i will be busy (again) after this... Heard it's really cold there (Yay!)... People who want anyhting from there whould tag my board so i'll consider getting something for them... this is just so my tag board won't expire, i won't get them things anyway... Just joking!!!

I'm done! I'm done! I'm soooooooo DONE with the examinations! Woohooo!! now I can relax and enjoy myself!

Finished Accounts Paper 1 at 3.25 on Monday afternoon since I didn't go out of the hall, didn't see the point doing so... Came out and discussed paper with Jayne while walking to car, and saw Yuan Xiang waiting in car (his, not mine) with his mom. Which means SOMEONE came out way early... As to why he was in MY school i don't know, but suspect it has something to do with his dear mei which is hasil tindakbalas asid karboksilik + alkohol...

Went for pot-luck at Tasha's condo today... I swear, it was like a food expo with the variety of food we had... Italian, Chinese, Indian, you name it , we had it... Was so very stuffed after lunch, but still managed to taste Jayne's delicious dip of which the recipe she wouldn't give me, and jelly courtesy of Lyn... We watched "The Sisterhood of The Travelling Pants" in Tasha'a mom's room since the boys were using the TV outside for (what else?) playing PS 2...

Was at Tasha's place from 11 to 6, Tasha's mom became driver and gave 6 of us a ride home... Went home and plonked myself on the sofa since i could no longer move, stomach was too laden with food... Did have dinner though, at around 8... highly suspect there's something wrong with my stomach as it could hold in so much... worm maybe? it's staying though...

An eventful day filled with many activities like Wei Yi singing a cow song, us painting our nails for each other (okay, mostly Tasha and Fangi), laughing and laughing till Lyn fell off the bed which made us laugh somemore and playing mahjong like rich tai tais... Having another gathering tommorrow with the same bunch at CS to shop for nail polish and lots more... Some gonna go do henna on their hands tomorrow too... expected: more fun and more laughter.

I said I was gonna enjoy myself.

Sunday, December 04, 2005

Finally, it's almost over!! Well, for me anyway since most of the Fifth Formers HAVE finished their SPM, lucky people... Just ONE more paper to go, Accounts paper 1 which according to my father can be done with one eye closed... Right, let's see his reaction if i do that. (everyone who reads this is automatically invited to my funeral if he kills me)

Although the exams aren't exactly over for me, i've already begun celebrating and will continue to do so till the 2nd of Jan... Mrs E brought Mel, Lyn, Cel, Fangi and moi to CS for a movie (which only Lyn and Mel atched in the end) after the EST paper where we saw half of Convent's Fifth Formers (and a few seniors)... Cel, Fangi and I went home with teacher and helped to decorate her Christmas tree...

Cel is already at Hokkaido, the lucky woman already off for a holiday when I still have a paper to go... Never mind, I'm going to Taiwan for a week where my dad will bring us around, which translates to visiting his apartment which only has 2 sets of utensils and spending the day at a huge bookshop... Envious, anyone? Didn't think so... Haha, not all that bad, at least can spend time with my dad...

P.S. Still haven't watched Harry Potter movie but many have felt compelled to give me their opinion of it... Am going to buy the DVD... one day...
