Stuff that makes you survive college

 Eerie view from your unit on rainy days to neutralize breathtaking views like this : 

 Friends who sends good luck cakes to you on the eves of exams.

A little sweet something from Marks & Spencer to cheer you up at random times. 
(No, i'm not dealing with stress or depression if that's what you're thinking)  

A messy table.

 Awesome purchases.

15 tubes of hand cream to last you a life time even after giving a few to your mom and sistah.

Early bird freebies (:
(Or any freebies in general cos i'm cheap like that) 

Waking up one day and turning into a tea freak. 

A mirror. 
And a window on the 23rd floor so that you can hear the light buzzing of the traffic late at night.

A bunch of mates (: 

Friends to lure you to utilise the canopy walk to its fullest and hence the empty wallet. 

 Cheese naan (:

Body lotion which smells so good you feel like chewing your own hands off. 

So that you can send your friend a picture of your sad-because-i-need-to-study face.

 Friends who steal your phone during lectures and take pictures of themselves.


That's not all but i'm lazy (stale news).
To great college years ahead ;)

Back to basics

So.... I just came back from a trip to Ipoh yesterday ( i can't remember when was the last time i spent a good time there already!!). I even forgot how much i loved that place :)

Anyways, the trip's main purpose was to distribute my sister's Chinese wedding dinner's invites to some of the relatives there.. Pre-trip, i used to think what are postages for. Post-trip, personally delivering the invites isn't such a bad idea after all. Nowadays, we rely too much on technologies and services provided that we hardly see our relatives anymore. I mean, i can't even recognise half of the people i saw yesterday.

Enough talking, picturessss!! I have no idea why i took so many pictures, most prolly to compensate the lack of photography enthusiasm when i entered my degree. First and foremost i have to apologise for the difference in quality cos they are all from different sources ; my BB, my mom's Ace, my digicam, my bro's dslr.

Here's my gramma holding a picture of her old home (obviously my idea lol) with my grampa before they moved to TI, somewhere in Ipoh near the hills. I only know the Hakka version of the name, which is "Sak Lung Kok". Seeing the picture my granduncle took, i can sense the nostalgia my gramma, dad, and aunt were feeling at that time, and i guess that kinda made me feel so fortunate we're able to take pictures as we like now to preserve memories of stuff we would like to preserve.. A little too fortunate, i would say :P

That's the village my dad grew up in :) I almost wished that i could live in that place!! It seems so serene, so untouched, so peaceful... Well, given the condition that i grew up without electricity and the technology we have today, i can definitely live in that place since i'm gonna be used to it. This is a 50 yo picture by the way...

And this is how it looks like now. Why oh why the limestone mountains whyyyy T___T

Dad felt so nostalgic he made a trip to the place afterwards. I wanted to take a picture of all 3 of them taking pictures but ayy my dad was too quick. Somehow the whole family got into picture-taking mood and everyone just whips out their camera/ phones to take pictures whenever, wherever (especially my dad).

And that explains why i get random shots of myself like this.
And this. There's a not-so-funny-but-i-wanna-tell-anyway story to this picture. I was driving with one hand, and my dad wanted to take a photo of me and he went "Eh two hands!". So yeah that explains the awkward position i had in the picture driving them to Ipoh.

Sorry the pictures are not in sequences. Am lazy to arrange my story in order lah hahahahaha (am currently whatsapp-ing with kshyen about laziness too! Talk about coincidence).

Wanna see something cute in the midst of the land mining shit going on at my dad's old village?
My dad's childhood play mate whom he accidentally met there told my bro (before knowing he's my dad's son) that there's a pig farm somewhere on top... Must be thinking we're some kinda city people never seen pigs before....... *slowly turns my head to the side out of embarassment cos i've never seen one before*

Okay so as we reached the pig farm these two little piglets came out and greet us wtf so cute i vowed to myself never to eat those roasted piglets at restaurants anymore!!!

 Look at the nose... The little tails... I would've taken one and smuggled into my bag if my bag wasn't white and they won't grow into.....

Not sure if you can see it or not, but it's a freaking HUGE AND HAIRY pig!! (did i stress on the word hairy enough) At first i thought the farm was like multi-animal type they keep a bull here but as i inched closer to the gate it was clearer and clearer that it was a freaking PIG, i tell you!! I would've went closer and took a better shot but i was so scared cos it looked so big and strong that the little gate could fly open any second and that big piece of pork would devour me cos it can smell the amount of pork i had over the years so yeah ummmm moving on to the smaller harmless-ish pink ones... and a little brown ones too........

Okay i know you're very depressed cos you're eating all these cute little creatures let me show you a freaking funny picture confirm you laugh your ass off, literally.

Hahahahahahahahahaha you laughing or not???

Okay enough of pictures of pigs these should be enough to make you not wanna eat pigs temporarily (or forever hahaha).

So, that morning we had breakfast in this AWESOME place, i check-in at fb to tell everyone this is far far far better than Old Town Ipoh White Coffee. Much better concept too.
LO AND BEHOLD, Lim Ko Pi!! Prices are freaking reasonable and food is freaking good i can freaking gobble up so much food look at my gluttonous face.

Literally okay i had 2 pieces of this awesome charcoal toasted bread smeared with butter and eggs on top, and a bowl of dry curry noodles. Which is not my typical kinda breakfast cos i'm always a light breakfast person. A piece of bread, coffee/milo/a drink kau tim.

Though there were some issues with fried wan tans and my aunty and the dumb waiter and a little mistake in the bill but i'll overlook that cos the food was awesome :) You can double-confirm that from my gluttonous face devouring food (not to forget my bro's too hahahaha)

Thereafter, we went to this cave where we planned to bring my sister's in-laws and awed ourselves to death.
This should be the name of the cave since it's the only board erected with chinese wordings on it. Sorry, no translation cos i can't read this shit. Shouldn't be so proud of this cos Ton was laughing at me for not being able to read Chinese when i'm a Chinese T_____T So ummm all you Chinese people out there you'd better take your grandparents' advice and go study Chinese, make them prouuuuuud.

So.. This cave.
Has a growing stone or some sort somewhere. Apparently this stone grows..... But i thought all stones grow? Maybe this one at a faster rate than usual hmmm cos my cousin said when she was little (she's still little btw ; 12 yo) it didn't look like this. I suspect they change the stones every year or something to make people come and see the stone but since they don't charge entrance fees i don't see the purpose of them doing this. Hmmmm a case to ponder.

I have the prettiest gramma on Earth. You jelly?
(Okay actually the main purpose i took the picture from a weird position was to capture the hole at the top of the picture cos i find it amusing and i want my gramma in it lah can or not)

The inner part of the cave with me in the middle, glowing like nobody's business for some weird reasons.. If you ignore the glowing me and squint your eyes you can see a lot of old man with newspapers at the back hahahaha according to my cousin a lot of old people come here to pass time.. Which is not such a bad idea since it was sooooo cooling n the cave and the place was so serene and beautiful.. Cos beyond the cave filled with stalagtites, is a secret garden with elves and dwarfs, kept secret from the rest of the world......

Or just a well kept garden with a pond in the middle and awesome trees and lush greeneries surrounding it. Along with the noise pollution of a stone factory somewhere (the ONLY downside to this place)

Or a temple where Shaolin monks practice their kung fu every morning..

Which turns out to be a toilet when your gramma wants to go to a toilet.
With a mirror outside the door so people can take a picture of themselves while waiting for their grandparents to take a leak.

And then on the way back home (or more like Kampar cos we were planning to have dinner there since Zhi sent us a map of the awesome food in Kampar) we stopped by one of the many durian stalls by the road side.. and brought back 13 biji durians back with us :D We ate one there and it was literally mouthgasm!!! Asked my bro to take a picture of us eating at the stall macam village people but he wouldn't cos he was so pissed at the smell or at the world i can't differentiate the emotions anymore.

The thing is, for the 3 months i was in KL i forgot how much i loved nature.. And KL is seriously lacking of these beautiful places, even though they do have planted trees around but merely as a landscape nothing more nothing less. Maybe i should've accepted the offer from UNIMAS to go to Sarawak then i can jungle trek every chance i get hahahahahaha.

Actually i took like literally a whole day to write this post cos the photo uploader was acting up, like some of the photos i uploaded were like this:
And i can't view them, etc. etc. And then i paused for dinner and paused for so many stuff, and i finally finish this post at night :P

Oh yeah and i deliberately ignore the period between my last post and this one cos i'm tired of saying that for the gazillionth time already. Adios people :)

I'll promise a full body post at the end of this week.

Food in my belly

*clears cobwebs using a broom*


*clears throat*


That's because i have been busy stuffing myself with food. Hmm not to mention i'm a little inactive on facebook as well. BUT FEAR NOT, for i am kinda frequent-ish at Twitter so if you're dying to know how am i doing but is so kiam siap to text or call me to ask how am i doing, follow me on Twitter!

And if you're following me on facebook you would already know about MY AWESOME FRIEND'S PROJECT in making teeny weeny small little stuff. Sigh. One can only wish to be as tedious as her.

Lucky for me, i get to share some of her loooooove.

Wrapped so kawaii-ly in a muffin box some more!

Okay lah actually i was the one that tak tahu malu and demanded for one thing on her wall cos too cute already wtf. Then she was so generous to give me....

THREE!! Jealous or not i ask you. *evil laugh that fades into the background

Initialised some more.
So that no one will dare to steal them from me mwahahahahahaha suck on that you cute-stuff thieves!
These are accompanying me throughout my college life haha thank you so so much Rosalind!

I couldn't stop taking pictures of it when i got it and my dad had to tell me to stop taking pictures of 'em! But haih life is sad because i have a super sucky connection here and i had to wait for an eternity for these pictures to load. In contrary to my TI house line, it takes only a little while to upload but REALLY SHITTY photos were uploaded like the ones in my previous post wtf. Like super angry cos i tried to upload 4 times and all 4 times it turned out like that. Wanna smash my notebook but have to remember it's not my notebooks' fault haih. So that kinda explains why i wasn't updating my blog as frequently as i used to.

Maybe once in awhile i can pop in to post a short post as a quick update on my life. Cos i have assignments coming (OMG THIS WORD WAS SO FOREIGN TO ME LAST TIME AND I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S HAPPENING TO ME NOWWWWW) and it's my first assignment wtf i don't know what to do so i gotta ask here and there. And not to mention most, if not all of my coursemates are one year younger than mua so yeah haih. But i guess it's kinda true when they say age doesn't matter when you're out of school. Cos everyone seems the same age and some of them are even more mature than you are! #ashamed

Okay anyways i mentioned food in my belly on the title because i suck at titles (for the umpteeth time) and because i literally have food in my belly all the time!
Preparing to battle against famine in the war.

Mummy loves me so much *sniff
Why are mooncakes so bloody expensive?!
And Tae Kae Noi crispy seaweeds too wth must treasure them to eat slowly when i'm super stressed out studying then have one to destress myself hahahaha -______________________-

Oh wait one last unrelated thing :
My housemates and i have awesome cute bellies (:
[Guess which one's me!]

Okay one last picture
My awesome initials at the back of my cute little fruit tart (:

Okay have to read more materials and stuff for my coming assignment and presentation already wtf such is life.

Why. Is. This. Happening.

I tried to upload my photos 200493 times but they appear like this. What is happening??

August 22, 2011

Sun-U Residence Day 5

I got my own ID and password - finally!!

And surprisingly it (the internet speed) feels faster than when i used my roommate's ID and pass. I wonder if it's my own imagination hmmm. Anyway. PICTURES HAHAHAHA it took a little more than 10 minutes to upload precisely 7 pictures -.- So yeah appreciate every picture i have uploaded for you okay!

Okay first is my awesome table. Though my table is really awesome cos it's SO BIG and sturdy.. It had teddy bears stuck on the wall left by the previous tenant.
......and it has 'Happy Together' on another wall.
I really don't feel like tearing them off one by one so i'll prolly be sticking something over it.. OR i'll just ignore it cos that's what i do best. Like how my table looks like 3 days.
Aaaaah. Ignorance is a bliss (:

And then it's my hospital bed.
Why did i say so is because doesn't it really REALLY remind you of a hospital bed? Or should i say the beds of Hospital Teluk Intan. Oh well. I shan't complain 'cos at least i didn't get a RM50 15cm mattress. This mattress is totally sleep-able, except for the fact that i had never slept in a single bed before in my entire life. Today is my 5th day here and still i don't get to sleep the whole night through! You see, i'm a roller. And what i meant by that is that i roll a lot on beds especially when i'm trying to sleep wth. BUT now when i roll, my brain automatically goes "OOPS YOU'RE GONNA FALL!" and i wake up and then i roll to the other side and then when i'm too near the edge my brain goes "YOU'RE GONNA PLUNGE TO YOUR DEATH AGAIN!" and then i wake up again. Haih.

I blame my daddy for spoiling me when i'm young :P

And i have 2 pillows 'cos i read on the Sunway website that students MUST BRING THEIR OWN PILLOWS, BEDSPREAD, etc etc. And when i came? They gave me a 'welcome kit' consisting of everything. But of course i still use my own pillow and my bedsheet 'cos their pillow is 10cm thick only wth.

Oh and let's not forget my AWESOME wardrobe!
Pfen told me that her wardrobe can fit two of her in it, but i'd say it's more like 2.7 of her!! Or maybe it's because i've seen the other sorry wardrobes during my room hunt so having a big wardrobe like this is really a bliss for me *sniff
(but of course still cannot compare to my 5 doors wardrobe back at home. No place like home, they say.

Well actually i'd rate this place a 8/10 'cos the place is so convenient, so fully equipped (would be a lot better if they use WiFi in the units and a 4mb line instead), the fascilities are great (no gym though), and it's soooo near my school imma cry right now *sniff. It's about 2 mins walk to the school, and then it's about 5 more minutes walk to Pyramid through the Canopy Walk! Thank you Jeffery Cheah for making our lives so much easier T.T (Not to mention by sucking out the money out of our poor souls too lol). Oh well. For the price we're paying now -RM730 for a twin sharing room, i'd say it SHOULD be this good since it's freaking overpriced.

Okay moving onnnnnn, it's a Sunday today. And pfen brought me to The Acts Church.
Nooo it's not the logo of Acts church wth i don't know why i took a picture of this instead of the welcome bag but aaah forgeddit. Anyways the talk today was really inspiring. And i'm wondering why every sermon i hear nowadays seems to stab me in the heart and sometimes the machete seems to twist a little in my heart.
Today's talk was about us being down and at that time, we gotta praise the Lord and keep praying. At the end of the service, i got some cool jie jies (lol) to pray for me about some stuff that i don't wanna reveal here.

And then i was literally vacuumed to the visitor's lounge where first or second timers go to mix around and fellowship. I wonder when have i became such an anti-social =/ Aaaand that explains the pecan cookie. Someone gave it to me at the visitor's lounge and said "Nah give you. Keep it in your bag and eat it. That costs RM2 each."

Okay anyway you should listen to some of the sermons and talks by some awesome speakers. CLICK it!

And finally......

The icing on the cake (:

Thank you sissy!
Love you so so so so much xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo!
