~Christmas Vacation~

 Merry Christmas!!!

I just got back from my friend wedding 2 days ago, barely have any time to unpack and prepare for Christmas. My family is not really into all this Christmas thing, well except for me and my sisters of course. So, like any other years, it was just a simple Christmas for us. Family bonding and spending time together over a brief meal and we did went visiting. Really fun it was.

Speaking of the wedding. it was a fabulous one. A great adventure for me to travel all the way to Uma Bakah, Belaga. I super love the traditional wedding, making me secretly wanting a traditional wedding too when it's mu turn..hehe..The people there are really friendly and helpful too. Despite some difficulties that we encountered during the visit, the bumpy ride, the weather, our sleeping was all worth it for such an experience. Will upload pictures later on because guess what???  

I have to pack again. For my family vacation. My aunt had invited us to spend the holiday at her place in Tutong, Brunei. I hadn't been the for like 5 years. Not that I really miss that place, I mean Tutong is just like a small town. But I'm looking forward to spend some time with the family before I'm packing for Kuching. Plus, Dad say we will further the jorney to Sabah and Limbang and spend a day or two in Miri. Am really excited to sight-seeing and shopping.

My parent and the boys are already on their way to Miri. Where else we the girls will take off with the evening flight later on. Have to pack now, bye!

And Happy New Year too

Just in case if I can't online before New Year.
Will be back on 1st of January 2010.

P/S: If you can't get to me through my phone, you can try my Facebook. *wink*

Midnight Snack: It's for Ah Tung and Baby

 It's one in the morning and guess what I'm doing?

Having my midnight snack.

Mind you, it's not your typical midnight snack.

It's my brother idea.

The mastermind/the chef.

Adakah patut dia goreng ayam tengah malam??

But I like his fried chicken. Totally finger-licking, kalah KFC.

The hot and mouth-watering chicken wing in the middle of the night.

 The satisfy face of the the sister.

Now we all full and satisfy. Let's hit the bed.
No picture of yours truly as I'm in my glasses with my hair tied up in a bun in my ugly pyjamas.

P/S: Bro, can you cook tomorrow lunch?

Insomnia Attack

As the title of the post suggests, I'm having insomnia this few days. I find it hard for me to sleep at night. What's worse is I got terrible sore throat few days ago and kept coughing at night. I couldn't even sleep on Monday night as the cough getting worse after midnight. It was so terrible that I swear my ribs felt like snapping out of my body everytime I coughed. Even my lil sis whom slept next to me kept shhhhing me. My mom kept nagging at me to have my medicine. All thanks to her, I'm getting better now. But the insomnia, it ain't getting any better. I guess perhaps I had push my sleeping time over the edge. I only could sleep after lying down and tossing around my bed for over an hour and normally went to bed around 2 am in the morning. Sometimes I even woke up in the middle of the dawn and I only could sleep soundly after dawn and would woke up at noon.

Seriously, I live an upside down lifestyle. Such a restless sleep routine had cost me big time. My eye bag is getting worst. I looked like a walking corpse. This is not good as new semester will start soon, as soon as in two weeks. This sleeping routine need to change and everyone who knows me better know that I'm so not a morning person. Morning class gonna be so hard as I have to literally drag my ass out of bed. I hope the new class schedule will not be too tight and let's hope there are less class start at 8 in the morning. *finger crossed*

2009 is coming to its ends in a matter of few weeks. It had been a great year for me. Although there are ups and downs throughout the year for me, I'm still grateful I can be as joyous as I want and blessed with great people in my life. And I can't wait to welcome 2010.

PS: I will welcome 2010 in another country. Hehe..can't wait for the family gathering. I miss my little cousin.

All Solved!

I'm more than ecstatic to find a black dress which had been stashed behind the clump of my clothes in the closet. And I just remembered I have a high-waisted dress bought by a friend not long time ago. Thank God my major outfit crisis is now all solved.
Now I'm only need to focus on accessories to spice up the outfit.
Thank God.

p/s: No hair makeover will be done. The money should be well spent on others priorities. I sound so grown up. Hehe..

Outfit Crisis

I need a dress ASAP. Not just a dress, I need a conservative yet beautiful dress. Damn, why am I so clueless when it comes to shop for dress in Sibu. Of course there are some dresses that quite fit the occasion but the prices are ridiculously high. I cant afford that, not since I'm planning to have a hair makeover. By the way, what color should I go for? I'm thinking of red but I'm not sure if I can pull that off. Back to dress, basically I'm gonna need two different set of attires. One for the church service and one for dinner reception. Oh, forget to inform, I'm gonna attend a friend wedding next week. Hehe..that's what the dress for. Any idea where to shop for dress in Sibu? I'm gonna survey some other stores tomorrow. God willing, I'll back home with the perfect dress. *finger cross*

My imaginary brake

I can't decide whether it is because I'm the big sister in the family or I'm just having trust issue, I always feel oblige to take over the wheel every time I'm heading out with my family, that's it unless my dad come along. Because other than him, I don't trust my other family members to drive. Yesterday I was going out to pick up my brother's boat and my sister drive because we use her car. I can't help myself to step on the car floor to brake as if I'm the one whom drive when she tailed too close behind others car. It's an automatic response, okay. My life depends on the driver, okay, I'm hanging on to dear life when my sister or my mom drive. My mom is the worst driver ever, she drives by her emotion not by the law. Even if she's wrong, she never admit it, what's more she will shout and honk the others driver as if it's their fault. Then she will push on the gas and accelerate regardless the condition of the traffic. Huh, I wonder how she got her license in the first place?? Remind me to fight for the steering next time when I'm out with her. Perhaps it's my own trust issue that lead to my paranoia. I feel more comfortable behind the wheel than sitting at the passenger seat. ( This only apply to auto car cause I'm suck at manual..hehe). Knowing that I myself in control make me feel whole lot better than sitting on the passenger seat stepping on my imaginary brake every time the driver tail too close to the car in the front. So next time, I'll fight the car key or else I just staying in. Hmm..perhaps I won't do the latter, but I'll make sure my seat belt is safely secured and for the driver, drive safe or you have to bear my deathly stare .  I put my life in yours hand.

I want to be greedy

Can I be greedy for this upcoming Christmas? Please Santa, only for Christmas. It's a season for giving. I had been a really good girl throughout the year,or at least I thought so, *put on innocent face and shining big eyes*. Try imagine me doing that but make sure you already have your dinner or else you will lose your appetite..hehe.

Still, it wouldn't  hurt to dream and wish for the impossible, is it? So here go my Christmas wishes:

Should I give you a fair warning before you proceed, prepare yourself to gag over my impossible wishes.

  • I hope it snow on Christmas eve, so that I can wake up watching the snow fall outside my window.
  • Okay, since wish # 1 is totally impossible, then I hope it chill on Christmas morning, at least I can feel the Christmas atmosphere. I don't know why but I always like Christmas morning to be cold and chill. Sun will just ruined the mood, don't you think? 
  • > I browsed through a couple of Blake Lively earlier and her long and wavy hair got my attention, besides her hot body of course. I so want her hair, I just wish my hair can grow faster because I'm sick of my mid-length-going-nowhere hair.
    •  I want to grow a few inches taller. Don't get me wrong tho, I love my height (can you sense how pretentious I sound? hehe..ignore that), but it will be way cooler if I'm a bit taller than I am now.
    • I'm not going to grow an inch, that's fact.So, I want my feet to grow a size bigger, can't I? At least it won't be such a trouble for me to find a suitable heels or shoes. I get it if  this wish will be turned down, so as a back up, I wish that shoes or heels inventor/designer or whoever made shoes or heels will consider the customers whose have kind of small feet. It is practically a customer bully for not considering someone with small feet especially when that someone is me.

    •  I just realized my hard disk had turned his back on me, swallowing all my must-watch-during-holiday movies. Can I wish that tomorrow when I plug in my hard disk, it will magically functioning like nothing had happened before? I just want my bloody movies. I had been running around asking my friends for movies to be watched during holiday and after I got it and dying to watch it, the hard disk failed me. Do you know how frustrating it is? Perhaps a technician can help me with this.

    • I just realized the more I write this wish list, the longer it will be. So, long wish short, can I have a mind-reading power like Edward because I'm sick of not knowing and guessing. Wait, on second thought, I prefer not knowing at all rather than knowing something that I might don't like. No, no,no..on contrary, knowing something that I don't like perhaps can be beneficial for me. In what way? I'm still clueless. Oh, what am I babbling about here? I myself don't get it.

        Man, it's December now. Christmas is just a few weeks away. Will it be too early if I set up my Christmas tree now? With all the decorations and Christmas songs being played at the mall, I'm so in the mood for Christmas now. Let's set up our Christmas tree.


        Aren't these Christmas trees beautiful? It's so Christmasy..I love all of it.

        Merry Christmas everyone!!

        Marry me, Edward..

        Finally the day that I gad been waiting is finally here. A date with my vampire boyfriend. *wink*. It's all started a year ago, when the Twilight fever spread worldwide. For starter, my immune system was working really good, that's it until a lonely 2009 new year celebration. That night I was stucked at my uni with no plan nor celebration for new year. So, I asked my friends to accompany me to join the JPK countdown where Twilight was showing.

        It was love at first sight. He was too good. No, hold it, I was wrong. He was perfect. What else you could ask for a man other than his undying love for you? He not just a gentleman, he very thorough. And he is physically perfect, and has musical talent too. *officially drooling now*.  After the movie, I was very keen to get my hand on the saga. I had read all of the books in less than two weeks. (When I said read, I was actually screening, can't really afford to buy the real book, so I downloaded it..hehe).

        Okay, back to my date. It was perfect if I minus the part about the crying baby, the phone beeping, people talking and grunting and lastly the bastard who scratched my car. $^$#@#@. (I'll take about this later). First thing first. New Moon is exactly the way I pictured it. Truth is, I had been watching all the trailers (more than once)..hehehe..all thanks to a mister for the link and I read the book too. I know the story line from front page to the last page. For the movie, I'll give two thumbs up. (This is not because Robert Pattinson is in it, this is purely judged based on the performance and the setting of the movie).

        I really love the wolf pack. They are all totally buffed up. Man, those six packs is totally gorgoeus. This is coming from a girl whose not into muscular guy, the wolf pack must have working their ass off to get that muscle. For once, I even considered to become a wolf girl and hoping Jacob will imprint on me.

         The breathtaking wolf pack.

        As much as I love the wolf pack, I can never be a wolf girl because deep down I am a vampire girl. Kristin Stewart is doing good job in playing Bella, the pain from the sudden departure of Edward is portrait well.When I read the book, I was a little bit disappointed as I thought Bella will end up with Jacob, after all, New Moon is focusing on Bella's condition after Edward left her. I was so afraid that Bella will rebound on Jacob. When the news about the second movie was out, I thought there wouldn't be much scene with Edward in it. Thanks God I was wrong. My favorite scenes will be the birthday scene and the Volturi meet Bella scene and the Alice driving the Porsche scene and Bella cliff diving scene too. Okay, bottom line, I love the whole movie.

         It's true love that they have.

        So the lamb fall in love with the lion

        One thing that really annoyed me in the cinema is the inconsideration of human. So, please people, don't bring your baby to the cinema. It's a baby for God sake, he/she don't even know what is showing on the screen. We want to hear what Bella and Edward said, not your crying baby throughout the movie. And people, please turned your phone to silent mode. We understand if you want to text your friend about how handsome Edward is, but your ring tone is distracting others concentration.

        Not only my mood was ruined by the movie-goer, when I walked back, I noticed a scratch on my dad's car. Some bastard had reversed and hit the right side of the car. Lucky it was just a tiny scratch. I quickly rushed to the workshop and had it polished. The scratch is basically invisible now and I hope my dad will never find out. Or else, I will be banned from driving his 'precious'. And for the bastard who scratch the car, karma will find it way to you. Bear that in mind.

        My Man Best Friend

        I had came across a post which had hit me in my soft spot when I was blog-reading earlier. It brought back the feeling that I had been shoved deep down in my heart. I have to admit, yes, I do miss him. A lot. A video that my friend posted on my Facebook wall only helped to make the feeling grew stronger. I miss my Pino. And lucky me, now I'm home and looking forward to spend more time with him.

        Don't be fool by his innocent look.

        A year and a half ago, I was resenting my sister for wanting to have a dog. What pissed me of was that my parent agreed to it. The fact is I'm totally scare of any furry friend. We used to have two dogs when I was very little, around the age of 2 or 3. But I only remember the black one, named Nicky. Nicky was found dead because he was too old at the jungle behind my old house back in Balleh. After that, I never have any contact with dog, and naturally grow the fear of them.

        I do have some pets when I was growing up, numerous fish that only managed to live in my mini aquarium for few weeks, three hamsters which ran away and two turtles which I gave away.I never managed to keep a fish for more than a month, they always ended up floating dead in the mini aquarium despite my attempt to take good care of them. After giving up with the fish, I turned to hamster. A friend of mine gave me  hamsters and I was so excited and turned the mini aquarium to a mini cage for my hamster. My brother and my cousin always been my victim to attend the hamsters because I was too scared to hold them. I guess my hamsters didn't like me too. They bit a hole in their cage and ran away. But I bet they didn't last long outside.To cure my sadness after my hamsters ran away, I bought two turtles. Turtles are easier to handle but they didn't stay long with me though. A Chinese friend told me if I rear turtle, my lifetime with cut short for every turtle I own as in Chinese, turtle symbolize long life and should be release to their natural habitat. Don't ask me why I believed her back then and gave away my turtle to my cousin.

        Pino and his proud mama

        When Pino first set his feet to our home, he was rebellious and scared. The new environment totally scared him off and he took quite some time to adapt to our house. Back then, he was just tiny little fellow. Though we still strangers to him, he hated to be left alone, always demanding company, especially at night. Often the little sis sacrificed her sleeping time to keep Pino accompany by playing with him by his cage. Since then, they are inseparable.

        Now, Pino is the apple of everyone eyes. We love him but this little fellow can be very difficult sometime. It is a love-hate relationship for me and Pino. I love him very much but there are times when I really want to turn him into BBQ dog. Early in the morning, he would scratch on my room door, demanding me to let him in, as early as 6 am. It is bad enough he disturbed my beauty sleep, he even sometime scratch my comforter demanding my attention. I don't mind the comforter but sometimes it's my face that suffered from his scratching and yanking. There are times when I was too tired to greet him in the morning, my mom would open my door and let him in. He got the hint and sat silently next to me waiting for me to wake up. I was clearly not a morning person and he got tired of waiting and finally fell asleep too. 

        He would sleep soundly like a baby next to me. Even so, a light movement or any noise would wake him up.

        One thing that never change about Pino is he still hate to be left alone. Even when he's sleeping at the living room and I wanted to get drink from the kitchen, he would no doubt will follow me to the kitchen regardless how sleepy he is. Everytime we headed out, he would wail his tail as if asking us to bring him along. Two words that he totally understand are "am" and "bye bye". ( am means come in Iban). Once you said "am" to him, he would jump to the car once we opened the front door. He would sneer if you hold him back. The only word to calm him is "Bye bye" as he understood that he will not going anywhere.

        He would wait patiently on the front door for us to be home.
        One thing that he love the most is his evening walk. The little fellow is more than happy to explore the outside world after being caged whole day in the house. But careful not to let go of his leash tho. That's it if you don't want to sweat yourself chasing after him around the neighbourhood.

        Panting after his long walk (or run precisely).

        Now the poor fellow doesn't quite seem like his old self. That is because we give him a new haircut, a terribe one actually. Poor Pino, looked like a stray dog in my Uni.

        Worry not, little buddy. I will always love you, maybe even more when your hair grow back.

        Love , anybody?

        I just wondered, can people just fall in love without knowing  (or seeing) the real particular person? Okay, admiring the picture on the internet doesn't count as seeing the real person. You should at least saw her/him once in your life. I kept on pondering with this thought and realized this concept doesn't work on me. Love at first sight, acceptable. Love at first glance at others picture and never see the real person live, ridiculous. So, stop claiming how much you love someone that you never met in your whole life. Fact is, you don't even know them, how they behave in real life, what they like to eat, how they walk, what their habit and so on.

        It is pathetic to beg for love from someone you don't know.  If you are looking for love, perhaps you should start with people around you, people that you can actually talk face to face with. For me, love (as in relationship) is not merely just a feeling, it's a bonding, a commitment but the commitment is not as big as marriage tho. Honestly, I never actually fell in love. What I experienced before this was just crush which never last for more than one month, or three months top. Then, there is one particular person came to my life. He is different from normal guys, not that he is not normal, okay. Truth is, I don't know how to describe him. I admit, before this, I know nothing about him albeit the fact that I had known him for over a year and a half. Only recently or precisely four months ago we started to get to know each other.

        It felt so easy to talk (with the help of technology of course) to him. We basically talked about everything under the sun and I like it when he listened to what I got to say without being judgmental. He is quite honest too, I guess, since he is not afraid to correct me when I was wrong. Even if his little piece of advice is not that what my ears like to hear, I admire the gut he had. Sometimes, it felt like he is the best friend that I had known for long, very easy it is for both of us to share our life stories. Both of us are looking forward for our actual 'hang out' session. For the time being, we both opt for a low profile 'meeting' considering the 'controversial' we might caused later on.

        To tell the truth, I don't know where am I heading for this. But I like where I am right now. Being carefree and enjoy what comes in my way even if I shed tears along the way, at least I get some lessons from it. The uncertainty did get on my nerves but I tried my best to look at the bright side. Have faith with the future.

        Eloping to Italy

        That's the unexpected plan Facebook offered me. After choosing to be offline for quite sometime from Facebook chat, I decided to go online for the chat last night. A friend post something on my wall and had raised the interest of many, but that is not the 'hot' thing yet.

        B approached me through the chat box and we talked about the issue: clubbing. Then he suddenly mentioned about his result in an application in the Facebook. He found out about he will marry me in Europe. Since it was all joke, so I played along. Suddenly he got this crazy idea. He sent me a request to confirm him as my boyfriend. How shocked I was. His friends started to bombard him with question after he published his update. What a hot topic it was. Everybody came up with their own theories.

        The idea sound fun but the joke was too big, so I said no. I cannot afford the risk as I clearly know that it will result in a very deep misunderstanding. The request still remain in my notification and his haven't change his status as well. He did asked what I want him to do with the status, change it back to single or remain in the relationship. I really didn't know how to answer, so I left it for him to decide, after all it's his idea in the first place.

        I have to admit. Facebook really does connecting people. I had been in the same class with a friend for over a year and a half, still I didn't have his number. We only managed to exchange it yesterday. Thank you to whoever inventing Facebook, you did me a great favor. Connecting people around the world. Now I sound like TM Net commercial. Holiday day 2 and I'm already bored. I have a feeling this is going to be a really long holiday, not in  a good way though.

        P/S: I'm thinking of a new haircut...perhaps I should pay the saloon a visit.

        Chemical Analysis Of Human Elements

        Found this note on my friend Facebook note and laugh my ass off when I read it. So, I thought I'll share it with you guys. Do enjoy.

        Element name: WOMAN.
        Symbol: WO.

        Atomic weight: 'Don't even go there'.
        Physical properties: Generally round in form. Boils at nothing and may freeze at any time. Melts whenever treated properly. Very bitter if not used well.

        Chemical properties: Very active. Highly unstable. Possesses strong affinity to gold, silver, platinum,and precious gemstones. Violent when left alone. Able to absorb great amounts of exotic food. Turns
        slightly green when placed next to a better specimen.

        Usage: Highly ornamental. An extremely good catalyst for dispersion of wealth. Probably the most powerful income reducing agent known.

        Caution: Highly explosive in inexperienced hands.

        Element: MAN.
        Symbol: XY.

        Atomic weight: (180 +/- 50).

        Physical properties: Solid at room temperature. Gets bent out of shape easily. Fairly dense and sometimes flaky. Difficult to find a pure sample. Due to age and rust, older samples are unable to conduct electricity as well as younger samples.

        Chemical properties: Attempts to bond with WO any chance it can get. Also tends to form strong bonds with itself. Becomes explosive when mixed with Kd (child) for prolonged periods of time. Can be neutralised by saturating with alcohol.

        Usage: None known. Possibly good methane source.

        Caution: In the absence of WO, this element rapidly decomposes and begins to smell.

        Divert and take a scenic route

        Been trying to study whole night but I can't seem to put my mind to it. Most probably because I was in Cais. I can never study when I'm surrounded with my friends ( and Internet as well). Though so, I didn't feel like my time was wasted. I had fun spending time with my friends regardless who they are. The laughter seem to never stop when I was with them. God blessed me for crossing my path with them.

        I can't believe that in exactly 12 days, this semester will be over. Time flies when you are happy, isn't it? The Earth never stop to revolve regardless what happened in this world. One thing that I can't bring myself to ignore is the fact that my friendship with a very best friend of mine had degraded to one point that I feel like a stranger to her. We used to be really close before, when there's me, sure there's her as well. Could it be the fact that we didn't have class together this semester be the factor of this? I doubt that. She doesn't seem like herself lately, being over-sensitive all the time. Even now I can't be myself when I'm around her as if any of my unintended remark or action might provoke her. Sure before this I wouldn't mind to reach out to her, but endless rejections when I asked her to hang out had put an end to my effort. We still see each other on regular basis though, but wouldn't be the same anymore. Could the lost spark in our friendship be restore? Perhaps. But I'm very grateful for other friends that I have. They colored my life in their own way. Besides enjoying the similarities between us, we respect the differences too.

        I had learned a lot this semester, not just in the class I mean. Now I can see the world in different angles, I may not like what I saw, but I can learned to accept it. The shades of life is not just black and white. It's more than that. One thing for sure, a year ago, you can never spot me to initiate the first step to come up to people, but now you will see me laughing with them like I had known them forever. I learned to accept others and brush aside others flaw and appreciate their contribution in my life. Though some people can be total pain in the ass.

        On the other note, I had done two of my papers for the final. Can't say much though. I did my best and lets just let them decide. I really hope I can get better result than my last semester. I had left a bad mark on my result slip last semester and finger cross that this one is going to be better. 4 more papers to go. Am holding on tight here and striving hard. Procrastination and laziness, stay away from me. I had prepared my shield and kelvar jacket to fight you.

        Saturday, October 31, 2009

        Somebody kill me, please.

        No, please don't. I'm still in my 20's, it's too young for me to leave this beautiful world behind. I'm positively diagnosed with the absolute no cure disease, nope, it's not cancer tho. It's worst than that. At least for cancer, the patient can go for chemo but chemo doesn't work for my disease. My disease is laziness.

        The study week is officially over and let's see how my study progress. Well, I'm still on my mycology notes, the same notes that I had been trying to read 4 days ago. What's wrong with me? I can't concentrate, sitting with my notes at the study table and I ended up playing with my hair, copping off the split end. Find a new port on my bed and I ended up dozing off. Went to CAIS few days ago for a new study atmosphere and I ended up Facebooking there. My disease is chronic, isn't it?

        Screw me. I'm staying up tonight to STUDY. *finger cross* . Before the memory of the prom night fade away, I shall blog about it now.

        Getting ready at the hotel room. Felt like real prom oh, siap ada bilik di hotel lagi tu.
        The venue for our Prom Night is Harbour View and I didn't book the room. The room was for the committees members to get ready. Since I 'volunteered' to be the receptionist, so I had the privilege to use the room. 

         All smile and set to welcome the arrival of the guests.

        Teman sepejuangan sebagai receptionist, Mila

        Who said being receptionist is an easy job? of course la giving away the lucky draw and door gift is easy, but pinning a flower (I don't know what that thing called) is not. Especially if like this fellow, tebal giler wei blazer dia, then takut tercucuk dia pula.

        My starving-not-so-fabulous look

        Sulk because the speech is too long. lah, the speech was fine actually, not the typical boring speech, this photo just taken at the wrong moment.

        Jia Rong, me and Julia.
        Taking picture is a must after stuffing the stomach

        Me and the 3 dara pingitan: Anggella, Stenna and Achu

        Now, let's me present to you the candidate for the King & Queen of Taekwondo Appreciation Night 2009
        From left to right: Irene, Farah, Kak Zi, Abg Hisyam, Stroyan and Celestine.
        They all required to perform and sharing their talent. They were chicken-dancing now.
        I have to say, the talent show was hilarious, especially Celestine's part.
        Try imagine him shaking his booty. Hahaha..kalah gelekan ratu dangdut..

        Now, all hail to the King & Queen

        King: Celestine No'eh
        Queen: Irene Rogers

        Performance by the Celestine, Alexis and Stroyan
        The acoustic version of 'Not Like The Other Girl' and an Iban Song "Flora"
        I'm quite proud they chose to perform Iban song as well.
        There were others performances as well : dance, karaoke by others. But I cant find a decent picture of it.

        These are among the performers that night. All gathered together to sing 'Kau Ilhamku'.
        Hah, whoever forget the lyric, quickly scan through the tentative book, it was there.
        The crowds joined to sing the song. It was such an happy ending. Very touching I shall say. Even Kak Zi couldn't help to shed tears.

        Group picture, all got ready in their best pose.
        From left to right: Slyvia, Anggella, yours truly, Harold and Abang

        Me showing my black nail colors. Others didn't want to kalah, mok juak ngeso kuku.

        Hah, jom ramai-ramai tunjuk kuku.
        This is my favorite picture of the night.

        Pantang bergambar memang semua mok join.
        Everyone, peace and say cheese.

         Change the position pula, but me remained at the center. Haha.

        And last but not least, picture of everybody together.
        It was hard to get everyone into a snap, the stage was too small and some people got cut out in the picture.
        Even when everyone could get in, then the picture become blur. What a spoiler.
        But in the end, the night was a success.
        The gap was broken and the new bond was created.

        P.S: I know I had promised a post for the camping.
        Will do, soon.

        Essence of Music

        Next week is officially study week, but I still have a list of assignments yet nowhere near to be done. Procrastination is my biggest enemy, attacks me in my soft spot. Today is a brand new day, I vow to make it productive, or at least stop my procrastination and start taking necessary action as I know later how much I will regret not doing this earlier.

        Having exam yesterday and I sucked. Have nobody to blame but myself, it's a habit to do important stuff last minute. A friend reminds me not to repeat the same mistake anymore and indulgence less in my guilty pleasure. He was right. So, here I am, trying to make difference for a greater purpose. My dad was in town few days ago but we failed to meet up. I was so sad because I miss him so much, even when I was talking to him on the phone, I was holding back my tears. I had caused him enough worry, no need to burden him with my emoness and homesickness. That's how I am with my family. I tend to keep certain things to myself, I'm not secretive tho. There are just certain stuff that are means to be kept to yourself, don't burden others with it. I don't want to add any unnecessary worry to my parent, but I know deep down they know me better than anyone else. I never say it out loud, but they know I miss them.

        Only music and great songs are my company during moment like this. When I was buried deep down in the bottom pit of my sorrow, I turned to music for comfort. Currently, I'm in love with these songs:
        • Going Under- Evanescence
        • Undisclosed Desired-Muse
        • I Belong To you-Muse
        • Two Is Better Than One-Boy Likes Girl feat Taylor Swift
        • Tearsdrop On My Guitar-Taylor Swift
        • My Immortal-Evanescence 
        My list could go on and on till bored you to death just to read my song list. In appreciation of music, last night my friends and I attended a preview of home concert organized by Faculty of Applied and Creative Arts. It's my first experience watching an orchestra live, very satisfying tho there are some weakness in the performance. I wanted to watch the home concert instead of the preview. Too bad the ticket is sold out. I really admired a girl who played the violin, so graceful, the way she moved with her music. Why am I born with no musical talent? I'm literally tone deaf but I appreciate music. Another instrument that caught my attention is drum. I always love watching people playing drum, very energetic and upbeat. I should go for music lesson this holiday, start simply by guitar perhaps. I adore people with musical talent, let it be playing instrument or singing. My another version of perfect date will be to be serenade. I'm such a dreamer. LOL.

        Not a very good performance I shall say.
        I kept feeling that something is wrong with this piece.

        The vocalists are good so are the players.

        The duet.

        Besides some songs, they also featured a musical theater and a film scoring. Which was quite okay I guess. Just another typical theater. Though the home concert could have been better, I was happy to be able to drown myself in the world of music. It helps to make me feel better.

        My Raya

        Though Hari  Raya is long gone, I still haven't talk about my Hari Raya this year. This year is the second year I experience celebrating Hari Raya and it was better than last year, simply because.....

        I have new Baju Raya as well...

        Actually, I was just simply asked my mom can I have new Baju Kurung, considering that I had grown tired of my Baju Kurung from my matriculation life. Who knew my parent is such a good sport? The next day, they brought me shopping for the upper part of the baju kurung since I already have the silk skirt which I bought in Labuan 2 years ago.

        So, here we go..Since we all went back to our hometown for the Raya break, our Raya visiting routine only start after everyone were back to Kuching. I was so excited for the visiting that I skipped my class whole day. Okay, that's a lie..I was just still in holiday mood.

        Us girl...Carol, me and Julia..on our way to the first house..

        And these were waiting for us.

        The first house was Khai's house. His mum cooked some delicious meal for us. Honestly, I'm not a big fan of most Malay cuisine, but his mom is a great cook. Every time I  went to his house, I always went back with full and satisfied stomach.

        All were full and satisfied.

        Carol, Mila, Julia, Me and Amy

        The next house was As's house. Sorry, no photos in her house. We caught her by surprise and she wasn't expecting us. So, we cut the visit short and dragged her along with us to Abu's house.

         Abu and Me

        So glad that I could meet Abu before his flight to KL the next two days. This funny guy got a job offer as Pembantu Pegawai Veterinar in Putrajaya. So, he decided to quit his study and start a new career. We had so much fun hanging out at his place.

        Me: Mila, you steal my food.
        Mila: Not me, i'm innocent..

         Wide smile after feeling full.

        Discussing serious matter, like adults..

        We are one big happy family

        The next Saturday, I cant recall the exact date, I joined my course mate for Raya visiting. First destination: Prof. Isa's house. Too bad he wasn't available that day, so his wife, Prof. Cheksum served us. Had a wonderful laksa at her house.

         Almost half of the class were there

        Next stop En. Hamzah 's house

        All smile

        Posing after having Secret Recipe cake

        After En Hamzah's house, we moved on to Eza's house and finish the visit at Neng's house. We had been studying together for more than a year now, for sure the bond had grown stronger and we did shared lots of laugh over very juicy gossips. And another week after that, I was invited to this..

        I represented Taekwondo

        with our club president, Yan and his friend


        Having the meaningful visit isn't just about the food, it's the company that matters. I had so much fun with my friends in all the visiting. Though we all come from different background, we clicked together. I'm grateful for what I have.

        PS: Gonna post about my Taekwondo camping in next post. It was SUPERB. XoXo :P
