Epilogue: 2010

I had never felt time pass so fast before. Looking back at the ups and downs I had this year, I feel that I have grown up a lot. I still can't believe that tomorrow will be the last day of 2010. Despite of the fact that I am looking forward for a fresh start, part of me is reluctant to let 2010 to become just a memory.

In January, I got in to Methodist College Kuala Lumpur. Experienced culture shock. That was definitely not an easy month for me. However, I managed to make a lot of friends and they play a very big part in my college life.


In February, attended the first ever ball night in my life. Got nominated as Freshie Queen. :D

In March, Kids Carnival. Haha. I remember I lost my voice that day and felt so grumpy. I snapped at anybody who came near me. :P Performed on the Treasure Hunt day. That was the one and only performance I got to do with the cheer team. :(

Treasure Hunt

In April, nothing much happened.

In May, went to Bukit Broga and meet a bunch of new friends from Uniten. Some of those friends became my karaoke kakis. They are a bunch of crazy and fun people, haha. Had my first Edexcel Examinations.

In June, went on a family vacation to Sabah. Went karaoke with Xue Jen and Natasha.

In July, donated blood for the first time. Don't ask me whether it was painful. Anyone with half a brain should know it hurts! Got together with a someone. Got into the Student Council. :) I really want to thank the lecturer who nominated me and the people who encouraged me to go for it, I found myself and what I want to do in Student Council. And the people in Student Council are reallyyyy nice people too. I won't get to know them if I hadn't join Student Council.


In August, went to the July intake's Orientation Camp as a facilitator. Had bunch of fun with the other facilitators. I still remember the karaoke session we had on the way back! It was hilarious! Haha.. Ding dong ding dong~xP

The other facilitators

In September, my boyfriend had to go oversea to study, so we broke up. Oh well, I believe everything happens for the best. He did not just come into my life as a boyfriend, he also inspired me in a lot of ways. I can't tell you exactly how he did it, he just did. Oh, and I had an AWESOME birthday! :P

My birthday celebration with my friends

A little surprise party my friends from the Student
Council threw me. Thank you guys soooo much!

In October.. Can't remember what happened. But it certainly wasn't an easy month after the breakup.

In November, last month of my second semester of my course. Felt like stopping time. Had some night outs of my girl friends.

In December, attended Toastmaster Leadership Programme. Made lots of new friends and had a very memorable time with them. Wai Lok had to leave to Australia. :(

One more day, then we are in a whole new year, a new year full with promise and prospect. I will finish my A Level in MCKL and will enter university. It is a very important year for me and I wish everything will turn out well.

I wish everyone here a happy new year. May your new year full with joy and love. <3

Fix ya crap, Twitter!

Sometimes, when I send a tweet, Twitter tells me that they did something wrong and wants me to send my tweet again in A MINUTE. I try to refresh my page and send my tweet again, it tells me the same thing. After refreshing the page 10,000 times, it still tells me the same thing.

When I don't have problem sending my tweets, this Twitter API thing keeps popping up asking for my user name and password. Clicking OK won't do any good, it will still pop out few minutes later. This is really getting on my nerves.

Apparently I am not the only one having this problem. Anybody here facing the same problem as me in Twitter? I am switching back to the old version for now. Twitter had better fix it before all of us have to migrate to the new version. :(


No relationship is ever a failure if you manage to learn something about yourself.
Just because it didn't work out doesn't mean it wasn't a necessary part of
your journey to becoming who you're meant to be.

2010 Christmas: YMCA street feeding+Gulliver's Travels

It was Christmas and I went YMCA to do some street feeding, spread some love. :) I hadn't seen so many people there before, but it was full house yesterday. Some of the blinds even had to sit outside the shade. Fortunately it wasn't very hot that day as it is the rainy season now. All the food was finished and everybody got a goodie bag before they left.

I could feel all the love and blessings in the air, and the happiness of giving. I have to say that this was by far the most meaningful Christmas I have ever had.

At night, I went to watch Gulliver's Travels with my family. It had been a long time since I last caught a movie. The movie was okay, not as funny as I thought it would be though. Grown Ups was better. :)

After that, we went to a mamak stall to chill. I did not enjoy myself there at all! The mosquitoes there loved me, and I am sure they had a very merry Christmas for sucking blood from my legs.

The Dusun

Vampire attack!

My family goes on a vacation pretty much every time my dad comes back from India. This holiday, we went to The Dusun, which is located near Seremban. It was a memorable one. :)

Day 1: Steamboat dinner

It was already evening when we arrived there. Went to the pool with my siblings for a while. After we came back from the swimming pool, we had steamboat dinner in our 'house' and went up to sleep. I was tired and fell asleep quickly with a firefly flickering around in my room. How beautiful! :)

Day 2: Jungle trekking, waterfall, small talks on the deck in front of the sunset, barbecue dinner.

Early in the morning, after our breakfast, we went into the jungle with an orang asli as our guide. I have always been a person who loves to be close to the nature, so I really had fun. And I got my first ever leech bite near my waist. Had some on my legs too, but those were kinda small. Unlike me, my sis hates the jungle, she was disgusted my the soil, annoyed by the leaves, horrified by the leeches. Haha! It was amusing to see her shriek when she found a giant leech in her shoe.

Spent some time at the waterfall before we headed back for lunch. Took a nap. In the evening, my family and I sat on the deck and had some small talks. Took a lot of pictures but none of them have me inside because I was the camera person. :(

Those sexy legs at the corner of the picture are mine. :)

Soon after the sun set, we had barbecue dinner. This is my favorite time of the vacation because I got to show off some of the skills I acquired from all the camps I have been to. We didn't have fire starter, so I started the fire with cotton and cooking oil. Smart heh? :P

My sis didn't know there was a moth on her shirt when I took this picture. Omg, you should see how she screamed when she saw it. Haha..

On the last day, day 3, we just had our breakfast and checked out from our 'house' in the afternoon. Oh, mind you, it was not a resort or whatsoever, it is a house owned by a couple from New Zealand. I dream to own a house like this too, but not in the forest, but by the beach. :) I am now finally home. Tired from the car ride. It is Christmas tomorrow, I already have my plans, how about you?

My new love.

I am here to rave about my new laptop! :D I know a lot of you already have your own laptop since long time ago, but let me rave la kay? I am just happy that I finally got mine! :)

I got my new laptop yesterday and now I don't have to share the family computer with my siblings. So I think I will be able to blog more often, if I want to, and have more privacy when I chat to my friends online without my family walking around in the background. I can do my research more efficiently because my laptop is faster then my family computer, and I can do it in my room alone, quietly. I can be online until late night and no one will care. I have so much more freedom.

I am having some problem with my laptop though. I feel so ancient using the latest Window. Everything seems too advanced for me. But I am kind of a fast learner, not a big problem, haha! And... The webcam is working, but it doesn't have a software to run it offline. I can use it for video chatting, but not to take picture. And.. My uncle installed some software for me, IN CHINESE VERSION!! The mandarin section in my brain is like closed for so long and is rusted already. I have to squint my eyes and try to pronounce the words before processing them in my brain to understand what the sentence means. Luckily they are not important software though, so it doesn't matter that much.

I feel as if I have wasted another day for not studying for the exam. I went to shop for a dress for next year's Orientation Ball night. My mom told me there is a boutique called Marry-Merry in SS2 that has really nice dresses, so I went there with my aunt today.

And got my OB dress! :D

At first I wanted a short one because, though long ones are elegant, I think it's easier to dance in a short dress. So I tried on a few dresses and this was the one I liked most among all the short ones I tried on.

However, there was something wrong with this dress. It's still tooo big for me even the size was only S. So I tried on some long ones.

I like this design but not the colour. :(

After 1 and a half hours in the shop, I finally decided the dress to bring home. :) Even the makeup I am gonna do for that night! :D

Haha.. I am not gonna tell you how it looks like right now right here, keep you all in suspence. You will know when I blog about the night. By the way, OB night is in February. Few more months to go. :)

The dresses in Marry-Merry are really affordable. Well, of course you can't compare them with Time Square's dresses. You can easily get a dress for RM25 there. They are different in the sense of quality. :) I heard from someone Time Square's dresses, though some of them are quite nice, they are DISPOSABLE!

Feel free to visit Marry-Merry's blog:

By the way, I am going to the education fair tomorrow in Mid Valley. And will maybe get to shop again. Keke.. So anybody going as well tomorrow? :)

Haul!! :P

It was the last day of J Card Members Day today in Mid Valley. I went there with my parents. At first I was stuck with my mom. I don't really enjoy shopping with her because she likes to go to places like Metrojaya and Jusco.. Ugh, I don't like. But I had to follow her because I had no money to shop alone. :( After a while, my dad stuffed some cash into my hand and ask me to go and enjoy myself. Hah! My dad loves me. x) So here are some stuff I got.

Vincci Heels (Brown)
Normal price: RM99.00
After discount: RM49.50

Vincci Heels (Beige)
Normal price: RM79.00
After discount: RM39.50

I like this pair of heels a lot. :)

P&Co T-Shirt
Normal price: RM49.00
After discount: RM19.60

Voir Jeans (Short)
Normal price: RM79.90
After discount: RM39.95

I thought the T-shirt was cute when I saw it, but now I don't really like it.
The rabbit looks so scary. :(

But the pair of jeans is really a hit! It is very COMFY and
not expensive at all. :)

The Face Shop Stick Eye Shadow (White)
Normal price: RM29.90
After discount: RM14.95

This is something I have been waiting to get. Finally I got it. :P

I didn't have much time to shop because when I got to shop alone it was already quite late. I was walking like damn fasttttt so that I could get as many stuff as I could. These are not all though, bought some stuff that are too personal to show. Haha.. Boy, shopping makes me so happy. Plus the sales and the christmas atmosphere, it's such an enjoyable thing to do!!

Conclusion: My favorite season, YEAR END SALES SEASON! :)

Don't Give Up

Has anyone of you tried fighting for something you want so much in your life but ended up falling so hard onto the ground, flat on your face, and felt like that was the end of the world?

I had a granduncle who spent his last few months of his life in the intensive care unit in the hospital, depending on a machine to help him breathe. The doctor told us there was nothing much he could and to be ready for the
day. Every time he lost his consciousness, we never expected him to ever wake up again. But every time we thought it was about time to let him go, he would gain back his consciousness and started talking to us again the next day. At last, he passed away, in peace. Back then, I was still a kid. But I could already tell that my granduncle had fought hard for his life, he did not give up until his very last breathe.

I have an aunt who had cancer. One day, she came to me and told me that the pain was so excruciating, it was too painful to bear and she did not want to live anymore. She wanted to kill herself. I hugged her and said 'Hang in there aunty. The doctors have not given up on you. We, as your family have not given up on you. Why should you give up on yourself?' Every day after I came back from my school, I stayed by her side to keep her company, just so that she would not... Kill herself.

At some point of life, you may be disheartened by a lot of things. One day you are at the top of the world. The next day, someone else is already better than you, and you start to think that maybe you are not as good as you thought and you lose all your willpower to move on. People, life, is like a marathon. When someone overtook you, it does not mean that at the end of the race you won't be the champion! Just keep running, if not you will never reach the end.

At some point of life, you may feel like you have done all the things you could to reach your dream. You have tried your very best to impress your boss, to score an A in Science, to put your family together, but nothing seems to fall into place. Everything seems so tough and you want to give up. People, life is like riding a bicycle. You won't fall unless you stop peddling.

At some point of life, you may think you have done enough. When people ask you to give it another push, you say 'that little bit more of effort will not help much, I have tried so hard!' So you think that little bit more effort won't help? Sometimes, that little bit extra effort you put into whatever you are doing can make a difference. Sometimes, that little bit extra effort can make all the difference. The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little bit of extra.

We all know water boils at 100°C. So what happens at 99°C? The water is one degree away from boiling. How about at 1°C? The water is just one degree away from freezing. Will the water freeze at 1°C? Never. So does the little extra effort count?

Thomas Edison once said, many people do not know how close they were from success when they gave up. Tough times toughen us. Things that don't kill us make us stronger. Challenges are here to make our lives better, not bitter.

Remember the aunt I mentioned just now? She has survived cancer. How wasted it would be if she killed herself back then. So my friends, no matter what you are fighting for now, do not give up, because you'd never know if you are just one step, or even one degree away from success. Good luck.
