It's All About Orangey Yellow

Ok so I guess most of you know that the there was no water supply for most places in Penang on Tuesday. And it so happened that my housing area was one of those in the list. Hence my mum suggested that we should go out station for a day trip, to "run away" from the "no water hassle". :)

So off we went to Taiping, since we have not been there for ages. Without doing any research through the internet the night before, we went with just a few simple maps provided by magazines.

Quite a spontaneous trip I would say, so everything was spontaneous. As we failed to find the place my uncle recommended for lunch, we ended up eating at this hawker centre at Jalan Panggung Wayang.

I took a walk in it, observed what most people were eating and realized most of them ordered "Fishball Char Kuey Teow". So, of course I follow them and ordered the same thing.

Nah, this is how it looked like.

Notice how oily is it? Gosh, I would not order again, though the taste was actually not bad. Very different from our Penang Char Kuey Teow :)

After that we drove around Taiping town, saw the Taiping Zoo, Jail and Lake Garden. Nothing much to see actually, so we headed back to Bukit Merah.

Snapped a few pictures in Bukit Merah and I decided to edit it to orangey yellow feel. Here they are:







Though it was just a simple trip, we were very satisfied because it has been some time since we went for a trip together. Missed the family trip in June this year due to my stupid final exams.

Just as we thought we came back at the right timing where water supply was supposed to be available, we were wrong. It was stated that there would be no water supply from 7am to 7pm, mana tau for my place, water only came back the next morning. But stopped around 11am something, then water came back but the pressure was worse than your pee. Until this morning only then the water supply was normal.

Thank god. Because I want to bath with shower and wash my dirty hair!

By the way, say hi to my little Pooh :)

Christmas present all the way from UK :)


Did you all party whole night? Were you all drunk? XD

I did not. Christmas eve is always not the party night for me. It's more like a gathering with my fellow TOU friends ♥

Wish all of you have an enjoyable day!

And.... Happy New Year!

Happy Solstice! 祝大家冬至快乐!

Hmm I know I am a bit late wishing everyone but I guess it's alright because till today I am still eating 汤圆"tang yuan" or "tong yun".

As for the picture above, please forgive me the bad quality because it was actually an MMS sent by fei to us! So good of her. Thanks dear!

It's called the Hakka Dou Sha Tang Yuan "客家豆沙汤圆". That's why the soup is dark brown colour.

So what is the type of 汤圆 that you are eating? Hokkien, Teochew, Canto, Hakka or... you do not know? :)

Anyway, since Solstice festival is over, Christmas is just around the corner. Hereby I would like to wish everyone:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

♥ Christmas Feel in Genting ♥

Reindeer and Santa Claus made of mineral water bottles. *impressed*

Hello peeps!

Finally finished working for this holiday. PIKOM Digital Lifestyle Expo was the last fair I worked before coming back Penang this morning. No more work (except script writing) for the remaining sem break because I need to really concentrate in my FYP. My supervisor's gonna kill me soon if I still have not much progress to report. *sigh*

Anyway, anyone of you went to Genting recently? The weekend before the fair I went up there to meet my family and relatives. We attended a relative's wedding dinner in Kuantan so stayed overnight in Genting for 2 nights.

For this Christmas, the decorations in Genting are made of recyclable materials such as cardboards, discs, mineral water bottles and water dispensers. Really love the deco. Awesome!



Look at this 45-foot Christmas Tree. It is made of 1074 pieces of 5 gallon water dispensers sponsored by Spritzer. Very nice :)


And this is me, trying to hold the Christmas Tree decoration.

We cousins did crazy snapshots with the spotlights. Look at the most right picture and look closely at my cousin's expression. I totally love it haha.

This is the only small kid who still played the "ting ting" machine. Up until today I still do not get it why he loves the game so much. All he got were the cards, which were quite useless. But he played and sweated like hell, and spent more than 100 bucks just for this game. Haih, kids nowadays.....

We even watched an amazing magic show with many other awesome performances by Glitz at The Pavilion.

Interior of The Pavilion

Really had a nice weekend with my big family :) Going outing with them is always fun, memorable and precious.

Bestie cousin

Our beloved grandma

And our lovely mischievous kiddie cousin

Hoping to join our Leow family annual trip next year with these lovely people again :)

Freezing cold *Grr....grr.....grr....*

In a very cold night, the 4 crazy cousins did crazy things in front of a 45-foot Christmas Tree in Genting.

The Christmas tree was very special as it was made of 1074 pieces of 5 gallon water dispensers sponsored by Spritzer.

Especially love this picture because of the pinkish background lighting.

I really love family outing~ They are awesome!!♥♥

Top part of the wedding cake

3 families, 12 of us attended a relative's wedding dinner on Saturday in Kuantan.

That bridegroom is my uncle (but seems more like a brother to me), my dad's cousin, my grandma's sister's son. Alright I know it's confusing, but yea I called him uncle.

Met relatives from other parts of Malaysia as well as overseas. All of them came back for this dinner. Very happy to meet them up.

So next Chinese New Year, I can get an extra ang pow from this "uncle" :)

Stop Child Abuse

Is it abuse if there is NO violence?

A very good question by UNICEF Malaysia.

Often we relate child abuse to physical violence like constant beatings that cause bruises, severe injuries or even deaths. However the fact is, besides physical child abuse, actions such as emotional child abuse, sexual child abuse and even child neglect are considered as part of child abuse.

For me, I do not wish to see any form of child abuse to happen again. No matter which type it is, they must ALL BE STOPPED!


According to Conventions on the Rights of the Child (CRC), anyone under 18 years old is considered as "children". Children at anywhere are entitled to basic human rights, just like anyone else living on this planet. They should be loved, cared and respected as individuals with rights regardless of age, gender and ethnicity.

Did you know that an average of 7 children in Malaysia suffered abuse everyday in 2008, and these are only reported cases. Many more experience abuse in silence and behind closed doors.
Abuse robs a child of their dignity. It can also leave invisible scars on children, their families and society that last lifetimes, if not generations.

As you can see, the number of child abuse cases have increased to an alarming state. If no actions are taken to stop these incidents, child abuse may affect children, families and society for GENERATIONS.

It is really not easy to get over child abuse. As we know, many adults who suffered from child abuse remain deeply affected disturbed in adult life. If no proper care and support are given to them to overcome their trauma, they may end up harming their own children, repeating the tragedy of his/her own abused childhood life. This cycle may continue on for generations which causes more harm to more people.

Therefore if you ever witness any of child abuse cases or know any of them happening, please be kind enough to report to the authorities. Call 15999 to report child abuse.

If not, you can be like me. Spread the word about movement to stop child abuse and create awareness among the public.

Always remember:

A child is not responsible for the abuse that he/she suffers.

The responsibility lies solely with the offender. All children should be treated equally like any other human. They are the future leaders of our country and our world. They should be allowed to live full and healthy lives, just like us.

If you think child abuse is a very horrible thing to commit and should be stopped, you can always create awareness and spread a word about it by writing up a post titled "Stop Child Abuse". Not only you are doing your part to stop this cruel act, you may even stand a chance to win a Sony Cybershot W190.

This is the courtesy of SONY Malaysia for those who want to help out more by sharing this campaign with your readers. For more details, please click here.

Besides that, visit to raise your hand, be counted and stop child abuse now!


Do your part. Get involved to stop child abuse. Let us create a brighter future for the children!

Banana cheesecake, anyone? :p

I had a lovely and wonderful day :)

Did a bit of household chores and got ready for lunch. Pampered my prince charming with one of our favourite dining place. Nothing luxurious, yet very contented ♥

Then I spent the entire afternoon reading a novel which I have bought few months ago. Always love to spend some time by myself, running away from this busy world and engaged in a world of my own.

I am such an easily satisfied person. How I wish every of my Saturday can be like this.

But I know it is impossible. Therefore I cherish and savour every minute of today's time.

Hope you guys have a great weekend too~!


You say, what should I do?

I have always been wondering, what will my life be after graduation?

To be frank, I have no idea at all.

Or at least, no concrete plans except for work and travel program.

You can say I am lazy, as I do not wish to work after I graduate. Not so fast. I told my parents I want to further my studies after the work and travel program. I want to see the world, gain new exposure and experience in places other than Malaysia.

But if I were to further my studies, what should I study? Stick back to my field? Change to Business courses? Or go into something like psychology or forensic science? *sigh*

I have gave serious consideration about venturing in Computer Graphic, Imaging and Vision (CGIV) in South Korea if my application is successful. But.... I am a bit worried.

Is that suitable for me? Because I am not really interested in what I am doing now, but if I were to really go back into Engineering field, this will be my only and final choice. Serious.

I am really interested in it, but to be able to do well is another thing. I know I am worrying way too early because I have not even submitted my application and to be accepted is another thing. It depends on the professor whether he wants me or not. But based on my results, I kinda doubt la.

Haih. I spent 4 and a half years in uni yet I am still unsure about my future.

What should I do????

6th Grade Graduation @ 平民小学, Batu Pahat

Tadaa~ That's me with Jun Jun, holding a graduation bear bear. It was a present to one of the kids.

Well, it was a spontaneous decision to attend this graduation ceremony. At first I have decided not to go because I had to work on Sunday till 9pm at Mid Valley. And the graduation was on Monday morning. How to go?

Then around 8pm on Sunday, suddenly I was informed that a friend will be driving down around 9pm something to Batu Pahat. Of course I was overjoyed because at least I was still left with a slight chance that I could tumpang that friend's car down.

After making several phone calls, finally I reached my friend. This super kind friend was willing to wait for me to finish work, and even agreed to fetch me from Yoon Sin's house in Kepong after I showered and packed my stuffs. (I stayed at Yoon Sin's house since Thursday night so that we both could go work more conveniently) The offer was so good, why not accept it, right? XD

So in the end, I made it to attend my yi di's (谊弟) graduation. Thank god~!

Reached around 2am and straight away went up to MC's room to sleep. Too tired because worked like mad for the entire day.

Anyway, here are the pictures of the graduation. Hope that these kids can do well in their upcoming high school days. Actually I am kinda worried about my yi di and yi mei. Really hope they can do fine.

Other friends who went as well

Basically the program flow of the ceremony was simple. Quite glad that when we reached it was already the end of speeches. Muahaha you know how we hate speeches. Long and boring.

So as usual, the program flow included prize giving ceremony.

My lil brother up on stage! (1st from left, front row)

And can you see the 2 tall girls at the row behind? I tell you, those 2 are girls are super smart and clever. When I flipped through the program flow book, their names appeared in almost all competitions held in school. Superb!

Then erm, there was a short break for those kids to change and make up while the teachers and parents had their morning tea break.

My yi mu & yi mei

Those kids were damn good in make up. Some I think were even better than me. *ashamed*

All of them, including every boy wanted to wear make up. I could not believe it when the guys came and asked for make up. *toink*

Me acting pro ^^

As you can see, what I could help them with was just putting on lipstick. The rest, I do not think I can handle it haha.

So after making a mess in the make up room, the program continued with performances by the students. There was cultural dance.

Singing performance by kindergarten kids.

Dance performance by the 6th grade students.

Choir performance.

That is my yi di's sister, also my lil sister. So cute! Haha before the choir started singing, she went solo a bit. Geng!

And then, it was time for photo taking session!

This is the group of us who attended the kids' graduation. The rest were working and could not make it. People, finally our lil brother and sister have graduated :)

To end this short trip, MC brought us to Soon Lai in Batu Pahat town for "kuay chap".

I swear it tasted nicer than the famous one in Penang. Maybe because the food was normal without any animal intestines. I hate those yucky stuffs.

And here's my favourite picture of the day...

Awww......aren't they cute? Hope to see them again, soon!

Teen Fest 2K10 @ Mid Valley

Anyone of you heard of Teen Fest 2K10 at Mid Valley Exhibition Centre?

Well, you probably don't know what it is, do you? Haha if it was not because I replaced my friend in a part time job in this fair, I would not even know about it either.

It was supposed to be a sort of festival for teenagers, full of online gaming booths with pretty showgirls and other chapalang booths selling stuffs ranging from clothes to laptops and cameras.

But based on my observations within these 3 days, nah, the crowds were mostly adults and families. Or you know, maybe those teenagers were there just for online gaming at another hall or were there just for Eken Cheng,郑伊健.

Anyway, my work required me to wear apple green T-shirt given by the company. Outside there are other competitors whose significant colours are yellow, purple and blue.

So, what was my job?

My yi di's (谊弟) graduation @ Batu Pahat

Seeing those kids going up the stage to receive their graduation scrolls made me think back the time when I was still 12 years old, just like them.

After 10 years, here I am as an Engineering undergraduate studying in UTAR. At that time, I have huge dreams. I wanted to further my studies in overseas. I told myself when I grew up I must be an artist because I was good in it. And if possible, I would like to tour around the world.

That were MY PLANS when I graduated from primary school and entered high school.

However after 5 years, I stopped drawing and eventually gave up the idea of being an artist. Due to some reasons and slight interest, I ventured into Engineering. And because I know that studying overseas needs a large amount of money, so I did not persist in completing my plans.

Thoughts and decisions changed as time passed by and we grew up.

I wonder, what those kids have in mind for their future? Will those plans go accordingly when they grow up?

My 1st pay!

After writing crazily for several days and nights, aha! This is my reward for my hard work and time spent in rushing those damn datelines!

I value this pay a lot because it was not earned easily. How much I wanted to give up in the middle of datelines, yet I still continue on.

I know more are coming up but I am prepared for it. If you want a fabulous reward, then you must work super hard to earn it.

Get going!
