A Day That Reminds Me I Am Getting Older

Yes! I am back in Penang! FINALLY!

Ever since CNY holidays, in these 7 months, I just came back for 2 days as I spent most of my previous sem break in Kampar. Really tooooo short. This time I shall make sure I stay longer before going back to continue on with my FYP =)

Just reached this morning and I thought this whole week I shall just stay at home and be a good girl since I rarely come back. But as I woke up at noon, juniors from Kampar called and said they were at Penang. So, I ended up spending my afternoon with them together with Shyuan.

They lost their way when they wanted to go Butterfly Farm and ended up at Botanical Gardens. When we reached there to find them, we just realized that Botanical Gardens is under construction. So outdated of us =_=

Anyway we took them to Toy Museum before heading to Gurney Plaza. Well as a Penangite, I haven't been there before. And I think most Penangites will not go there as well because feedbacks from most of the people who went there were "nothing to see eh". So, this was my 1st visit since they were interested :p

Well pictures will definitely give a better picture of Toy Museum. You can think twice again whether you wanna visit again or not. I can just say that, 1 time is enough. But when you are inside, I can assure you that you will think back your childhood days and realized how old you have grown haha.

Like this one, I thought back those days when I used to play Tomb Raider computer game. It was one of my favourite game. Argh those days....

Some of my all time favourite cartoon shows

When we were kids, we used to watch the same cartoon over and over again no matter how many episodes it had, isn't it? How would we do that, I wonder? And until I was in high school, I still watch Tom and Jerry every night before going tuition. Haha childish of me.

Until now, I still love to watch fairy tales and cartoon movies. Maybe because they remind me of my childhood days. I am glad that I had a pleasant childhood. 还好我有童年 =)

Favourite comics when I was young

Do you know them?

I am a crazy fan of Harry Potter

Not a very Avatar fan, though I love the movie

For Malaysians like us who are MyCard holders, the entrance fee for an adult is RM10. Well, may be a bit expensive but the miniatures inside there are seriously a huge investment. So... the price is like that lo.

After seeing soooo many different toys, we headed to GP and yum cha at McD because shyuan and I wanted to eat ice-cream. Temptations can really kill my diet plan lol.

As we ate and chatted, suddenly.....

I heard "Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you................................" and I was presented with a cute piece of cake with a lighted candle on it.

I was surprised. Stunned. Overjoyed. Touched.

Never cross my mind that this is going to happen because my birthday is like 2 weeks later. This is sooo early! Thanks people =) Really sweet of you guys! ♥♥

This is my 1st 22nd birthday celebration. And my god! This reminds me that I am going to turn 22 in 2 weeks time! So sad, no more sweet 18 or at least sweet 21 =( Getting older day by day d....

Thank you, everyone!

Little kids love fairy tales because the stories always have happy ending. But do our real lives have happy endings?

We can never predict the future, yet we can always make our life contented and happy. Everything is in our hands. I believe in myself, but I do believe in fate and luck as well. But to me, if we never work hard, fate will never help us and luck will not be around us.

Should work harder in the remaining semester. After that.... I will see how my life plan goes on. Accordingly or otherwise.

Look how happy he was!

Today is Zhi Hong's 21st birthday. My dear housemate, happy birthday!

Witnessed an incident today, which I could not help but think about it. And it made me think about myself too. All this while I wanted to change some of my bad habits, but how much have I changed? All I can say is, I still need to improve.

We tend to spot others' mistakes easier than we spot our own mistakes. Though what happened today has nothing to do with me, but after some friendly chatting session I realized that I have to work harder to change for better. There is no point that I pin point others' mistakes while doing them myself.

Lots of thinking to do. Let's add oil together!

Happy 22nd birthday, Fern ^^

I do not know why but I like how the way the picture was blurred. Not taken intentionally, but.. I just like it. Weird taste of mine.

Well, maybe 10 years later when we look back at this picture, memories will be blurred like the photo itself. But one thing is for sure, we all know that we were happy and we were really great buddies.

That is why I love photos. I love taking photos, be it human, things or scene. Not only they help to preserve the moment of that time, they actually do speak better than words.

So, I am determined to learn more about photography in this coming semester break. Shall see to it then.

p/s: I stopped this project for the last 3 weeks due to workload and exam. So shall continue it starting from today.

I thought I could wake up with a better mood since after my bad mood after exam, the funny movies that I watched did lighten my mood. But I did not. I woke up by having the feeling to yell at everyone.

I really hate it when I prepare hard for exam, I came out from the exam hall not knowing how to answer them. I know I am not pro like my friends and I need to put more effort in understanding, and trust me I did do that. Almost everytime I went in with a smile and confidence, flipped through the papers with a smile thinking that I could still manage to answer most of them, but when I started to answer, I found out that it was totally the other way round. Why the hell it has to be that way everytime?


I have disappointed myself as well as my parents. I could feel the pressure again. I told myself I have to maintain my grades as I am just left with 2 semesters and I am done for my degree. Is it so hard to do? If I were to fail right now in my final year, that would be terrible.

And I guess the other reason for me to wake up with bad mood because my dreams symptoms are back and I hate them! I was already lacking sleep but whenever I slept, the dreams would happen. Why they have to come back and bug me at this kind of time?


I must find something to do that can make me feel better. I want my day to be fine. I need some good food. I need a walk. I need jokes. Anyone?

Today is my friends' convo! Was super excited and happy, yet tired and sad.

Excited and happy because I have many friends who graduated. Spent amount of time searching for the nicest and cheapest flowers and doing gifts for xia xiang friends. They really deserve them.

But as I attended both sessions (morning and afternoon), it was super exhausting. We were crazily taking photos under the hot sun. Juniors from kampar went there as well and did some 'fan club' cardboards for my xia xiang friends. Everything was very out of control. I even heard that my friend was being thrown up to the air =S

The entire day was great with all those meeting ups with friends, friends' parents, photo takings and etc. But somehow I went home with a bit of sadness in me.

Convocation will most probably be the last time where all of us still can meet together. After this, I guess it is quite hard for us to gather in such a big gang anymore as we are in different places working, studying or rotting at home.

I know I will miss everyone of them.... you guys must take care! All the best!!!

Chian: Do not overstress yourself in work. We are worried!

Miss Yau: You don't always play with paint while working k? You Japanese boss will not like it.

Yenwen, Fei and Gim Wei: Hope you will get a job in Singapore. The effort that you put in to find job will be fruitful. Remember to miss me!

Yew: Still can't find a job? Put more efforts ba... and do not liu lang anymore!!!

Keat: Do not fool around in your company. Bei sam gei zou gong!

Uncle Chua: When you are being offered your dream job in black and white, remember to inform everyone. We want ang pow from you =)

Shu Jun: Do not move around too much and rest more, before you start work.

Shyuan, HAPPY 22nd BIRTHDAY!!!!

You are someone special in my life who has been with me almost in my entire life. A great cousin, a great friend, a great roommate, a great coursemate, a great group mate....

Whatever I want to say I have already written down in the card. But what I have not told you is, some decisions in our life that we made will surely attract many negative opinions and comments. But if you think what you did was right and you have carefully considered the consequences of the decision, then just go ahead with it. One day those people will know and understand you.

This 22nd birthday will be one of your memorable birthdays, isn't it? May all your birthday wishes come true =)

Gifts from Kampar

Those are gifts from juniors in Kampar. They made these gifts for each and everyone of us (coordinators). Thank you guys!

Ever since high school, I have a reputation of being very strict and fierce among my girl guides and rangers juniors. You know I have that significant BLACK FACE when I do not smile. So without exception this time I had the same reputation among these juniors. Plus, at times I was forced to play the bad guy's role because I have the talent to be one ^^

People may hate me for my face but I think sometimes this black face helps a lot in some ways. I do not purposely make that expression if needed. But if I am seriously pissed off with someone, I will always show that kind of face to let that person know I am pissed and please do not come near me. And you know, this works!

Anyway I do not really care whether people hate me for my face or not. All I know is despite my face mask, they know exactly what kind of person am I. I may look scary at times, but it is just the way my face looks when I am not smiling or emo-ing.

Ok enough of face saying. I will show more my charming smile next time. I know you all will love it =)

What can you see?

People, what can you see in the picture above?

I was so damn angry when I saw this.

After completing my assignment 15 mins before dateline, I thought of going out to my balcony to sip a bit of fresh air. You know, sitting more than 12 hours in front my computer typing and editing continuously was really really really torturing.

As I stretched myself and inhaled the 1st breath of fresh air, suddenly I noticed white things flying down from the apartment opposite.

When I strained my eyes to look carefully, I realized the white things were papers. It was a boy from the top floor throwing papers down!!!

When he was done with that stack of paper, I though ok he should stop throwing. But damn it, he went in to the living room and took out another stack to throw. And this process was repeated until papers were strewn everywhere and someone yelled "WOOOIIII!!!!!!!".

Wahlau, really I wonder, did the parents teach him not to do so? Were the parents at home at that time and were aware of his behaviour?

Seriously, I cannot stand people littering everywhere, especially actions like this.

Hopefully, he will be taught not to do so anymore. If not, maybe next time I will yell from my balcony.

Mahjong time!

Was stressed like mad for the last few days, so since we have handed up our assignment, we played mahjong again. Addicted to it already....

For me mahjong isn't just a gambling game, but something more than that. While playing, my brain needs to turn very fast. I need to know what sort of formation I should do; what I should take and what I should not take; how many types of combinations are possible with what I have in hands?

Most of the times, I am a bit slow when it comes to combinations, especially when I have few 'fei'. But undoubtedly I have improved tremendously in playing a 3-person mahjong game. Before this semester, I do not know how to play 3-person mahjong because I do not know how to count "fan" and was always lazy to memorize. But now, aha... the "fan" is as easy as water for me ^^

So that is why sometimes not all games are bad for us. At least some of them still bring benefits to us, just that maybe the amount is not that much.

But who cares? We just want to relax ma before studying for finals. Is that right, mahjong kaki's of my house?

Always on the top of the world and be the most outstanding among everyone!

Chian, your convo bear is super cute so I decided to take some pictures of it.

I hope that one day you can be at the top like your bear, overseeing the world and be the most outstanding lady among everyone.

I know you can do it. And you know you can do it.

Do not give up. TOU will always be with you no matter what!

One of my love

When I was young, my parents signed me up for various types of classes. I attended art classes, piano classes, swimming classes, tennis lessons etc. I was considered very very lucky because I got to learn many things besides going to school, and was pretty good in some of them.

But sometimes I was bad enough to waste my parents effort. You know as a kid, or even now that I am already 22 years old, I tend to be very lazy. Undoubtedly I have passion in these fields, yet I was lazy to attend classes. Many of the times I simply wasted my time in classes.

But to think back, I miss those times. I miss what I really love to do. Ever since I came to KL, somehow I do not do any of them anymore. My skills are all worn out.

I wish I get to continue on with what I love. Those equipment and stuffs are still nicely placed in their places. When I graduate and go home, I will make sure that I do so. So Mum, please do not sell off my piano. I will cry like hell ^^

Housemate's Rubik's Cubes collection

Sometimes I wonder, am I qualified to be an engineer? Do I have the brains needed by an engineer? Do I have the positive attitude needed by an engineer?

To be truthful, I doubt so.

This is not a post about regretting my choice of study. Just that after all these years in university, I wonder when I graduate, am I really qualified?

Results to me is not everything. I may not get superb results but at least my results are still ok. However compared to some who do not excel in finals, they are brilliant in practical. This is something that I wanted to achieve but fail.

Maybe it is my attitude that fails me. Maybe it is due to other factors.

But whatever it is, I hope that by the end of my final year in university as an engineering student, I can achieve something academically as I have done enough in co-curriculum wise. Hopefully, my final year project will be a huge leap for me and will lead me to the path that I want in future.

But before achieving something big, at least I must know how to play a Rubik's Cube. You know, I feel ashamed that given that I am an engineering student who should have brains that think fast, but until now I still fail to complete an easy one.

It remains as a challenge to me. A challenge that must be completed!

Froggies in Shyuan's pants

I do not know why, but these two froggies remind me about my brother and I.

We used to play and fool around when we were still kids, but when he entered high school, things changed. After that we were like deadliest enemies, always calling each other with awful nicknames. I think my parents had bad headaches at that time just to control us.

I can still remember, back then when we still shared the same bedroom, nearly every night I would not go to sleep without complaining to my mum about my brother. I would just need to go downstairs, make report to my mum and then reluctantly went to bed.

Haha seriously, how come we became so distant at that time? But when he went overseas to study, only then I wished he could rather just stay at home. I would not mind to quarrel or fight with him. Ironic.

But luckily things changed after he went there. Maybe because I was also no longer a kid. Truly grateful for that. I hope that he will come back next year.. all of us miss him.

So, anyone of you who went through the same thing as me?

Casual gifts for the 12 of them

Eh people, even how much you do not like this gift, you MUST keep it ya. We did only 12 of them, and if you guys were to put those 12 puzzles together, they actually form 1 picture. A picture that consists 12 of you ^^

Tomorrow will be the 1st day of UTAR convocation. So before that, me and Shyuan decided to make some gifts for our friends (those who went xia xiang) Sorry guys, no flowers or cactus like Uncle Chua and Uncle Francis wanted.

No matter how we hope you all will like it la. Hehe all the best to you all.... hope to meet up soon!!

Naughty Tzyy!

Remember about the post about the 2 new tortoises in our house? Their names are Tzyy and Shyuan because their owner is my beloved cousin, Tzyy Shyuan =)

Well this Tzyy is really troublesome. Today when I came home from class, I realized Tzyy was missing. And I was super worried because if it really went missing I was freaking sure that Shyuan (cousin) will go crazy. Pity her because she just lost her hamster.

So I gathered my housemates and called for a mission to find for it. We searched high and low for it and eventually found it eating dust in some dark place.


He has a nice playground with a shallow pool to play and wander around but he chose to escape from it to somewhere dark and dusty. Some more the playground was handmade by Shyuan with styrofoam but he did not appreciate it. Naughty Tzyy indeed!

Guess he found a way to escape because after putting him back, when Shyuan came home we realized he went missing again for the 2nd time!!! But this time we were not so scared because we knew he would not be too far away from playground.

Tzyy ah Tzyy.... guai guai la...

Lie to Me

OK, since now things seem to be back to normal, I have decided to make my blog public, again ^^ People, you can view easier now so do come back more often ya!


Muahaha well I should not be happy too early because I am too certain that after my supervisor goes through it, I should need to redo my contents. Well, I do not really know exactly what should I write so yea, just wait for his feedback then only make changes.

And to celebrate that, it was mahjong and movie session again =) Played few rounds of mahjong in the afternoon before Yen Wen and Meng Chuan came over to yum cha. Was super excited after -playing because it was my first time to get 小四喜 ('sai sei hei' in cantonese)!!!

Then I continued watching "Lie to Me" with my housemates.

Lie to Me (Fox)
Tim Roth (center) and Kelli Williams (right) as the leading actor and actress

Totally fall in love with this series. It is about a man who is very professional in determining whether one is telling the truth or lying just by observing the expression on the person's face and gestures. So very often he was asked to conduct lie detection test on suspected criminals. Cool!!!! I especially love those parts when they show expressions shown by famous people and politicians around the world. Now you know what were their real emotions at that moment of time.

The truth is written all over our faces

I realized that whenever it is near to finals, somehow from somewhere me and Shyuan will pick up a new movie series and start watching them throughout my study week and exam weeks. Previously were series like Prison Break (All seasons), 24, 花样男子 (Flowers Boys) and other Hong Kong TVB series.

It is like....we just need to start watching an entire new series of movie right before finals. The timing is always so wrong =_=

And you know, once you start watching series which are as nice as Flowers Boys or Lie to Me, YOU JUST CAN'T STOP watching till the end. This is life....

Alright gonna stop here. Wanna get some real sleep and start my revision tomorrow. I am now all ready and prepared!!!! Go go go!! And Lie to Me, here I come too ^^


An escape from work!

Argh... taking a break right now. Cracked my brains whole day long for my FYP progress report and my head nearly went exploded.

In my entire life, I have never wanted to study for exam as much as I wanted to now. You know, when I was rushing for my FYP report today, how I wished I could just choose to study for finals rather than writing the damn report T_________T

Uni life was and is super hectic lately. I got to rush for assignments and report datelines. And when I have finally done with those piles of work, here comes my Final Year Project report.


The stress that I have undergone these few weeks was terrible. It went to an extent that I even dreamed about my assignment question which I did not know how to do. Lol... that was seriously bad. And then there was one day I dreamed about getting super low marks in one of my mid-terms.. 20+ / 500 marks.

Ok, I know there is no such thing as 500 full marks in any sort of mid term. But oh well, it shows how low my mark was =_= But in the end the dream was proven wrong because when I got back my test paper, it turned out ok. Thank god!

Anyway, after I hand up my FYP report and go through my presentation next week, I am still left with no time to chill and relax. Because I am now in Week 14 and next week will be my study week. I will be sitting for my 1st finals paper on 13th.

Gosh... I am so lack of time right now.

So after taking this short break, I shall continue on with my report. I have left it stranded for the past few hours. Really don't feel like touching it at all T_________T

By the way, I know I have not been updating as constantly as I have promised to... but I have really tried to blog as much as I could already. And yea I know my Project 365 is lagging behind time. Well no worries, I have taken a shot everyday, but will upload those shots when my FYP thing is over.

Ok, time to go back to work. Nitez everyone!
