Time, slow down a little will you?

These two days have been hectic and nerve-wrecking.
Yesterday :
- My great-grandma fell unconscious in the morning. She has been alright till then. She was sitting on my living room chair when she fell 'asleep', a deep one. No matter how we all called/shouted/woke her, she couldn't wake up. So my grandma called a GP to the house, he checked her, and her blood pressure and everything was good. No sickness, no high blood pressure, no diabetics, nothing! (she's 91 by the way, and still doesn't wear glasses) So he said, we have 2 choices, either, send her to the hospital, for there will be higher chances of them saving her, or let nature takes its course and bring her back to her hometown. All this happened before 9.30am, while i was still asleep.

Dad's phone call woke me up, "Lynn, go downstairs and check on lau-ma(great-grandma), mama(grandma) said that she's not breathing anymore." That immediately woke me up. I rushed downstairs, and thankfully, she's still breathing, just that she has lost consciousness, and grandma said that her whole body was already straight and there are signs of passing. So dad rushed home and we brought lau-ma to UH. A sight till now touched my heart so powerfully, was watching my dad carrying lau-ma. He carried her like he was carrying a baby.. When i saw that, i couldn't help it, i cried.

When we reached UH, the stupid emergency staffs worked like snails. They tooked their own sweet time in everything they did. Most of them were even rude. I mean, like 'where are your manners?' Sheesh. So, the doctor checked and sent her for x-rays and ct scans. That finished at about 11.30am. And after that? We waited till 5pm for the results. During that time, lau-ma gained consciousness. When she woke up, she told my grandma, before that, she felt very sleepy, so she fell asleep, and during the time she was 'asleep', she saw alot of people's hands and feet were being clipped by dark figures, and their heads too were clamp in cages. There was this dark figure, who wanted to clamp her head with the cage but couldn't, tried and tried , but couldn't. After that, she woke up. That means, during the 3 hours she was unconscious, her soul was already halfway 'there'. And had we not done anything, she would have already been gone.

By mid-noon, she's already alert. But, she has her moments of blurness. It comes on and off. One moment, she'll talk to us like normal, and another, she'll talk of emperors and how the staffs are serving the emperor or something like that. Usual old-age syndrome. At one point, she was talking to us, and suddenly she asked in teochew,"why is a big bus doing there?" She's in the emergency ward and her bed is facing an entrance to another emergency room. So grandma, quickly said, "there's no bus here, it's a hospital". After that, she's all ok and alert again.

After the results were out and everything proves that she's really healthy for her age, the doctor did some excercises with her, to test her alertness and coordination, which she fared pretty well. But the doctor said that it would be better if she stayed the night at the hospital to ensure everything is really okay.

Today :
- Lau-ma is better like before! She's back to walking, talking, and doing everything normally. Just that, grandma says that she still has her moments of blurness. She still has to remain in the hospital for another night though. Just to be sure. Well, i guess it's normal isn't it, when you're at her age. I really salute my lau-ma though. She's 91 years old, and she still can walk like normal without the help of any walking sticks or so on, she doesn't need glasses, and she has no illness whatsoever. Even the hospital staffs were amazed. Only thing is, she's got hearing problems. We've all got to speak louder to her. Other than that? Very healthy.

Time really flies.

It felt like it was just a few years ago, that lau-ma came and babysat us, and us children taught her how to speak english. "Noodle!", "loolel." :) Sigh, that was more than a decade ago.

cold, cramps, whatever.


during the last few days, i've talked to a few people, gotten advice from a few people, and finally, i think i have come up with a decision. I'll just stick to taking Public Relations in Utar. Since there aren't many opportunity for psychologist in Malaysia, and pr offers a wider range of job opportunities, I might as well, do pr in a local uni first, then if i really want to continue pursueing my psychology dream, i'll just take up a course in a private uni. Sounds like a plan huh? Sigh, although it all seems planned out nicely, i'm still very undecided. I don't know why. Well, i'll just stick to this decision, until someone else comes up with a better idea.. please do whoever it may be.

Backtrack a few days:
- Ipoh food is good! My mouth still waters at the thought of it. Besides eating all the way in ipoh, we did visit a few of the 'Sepet' sites. Like, Chicken King, Jason's house, Orked's house, the back alley where Keong got chased, Orked's school, and a few others. All in all, i enjoyed the trip, well maybe except for the cold that all of us except for Simon, catched from MingYang. That guy, sick also wanna stick his chopsticks in the shared food.. tsk tsk.

-Visited Cat's Whiskers with the girls on Monday and had a great time shopping for more clothes. They are one helluva shopping buddies!!
Love em'! :)

Vin Diesel : Handsome!

From the title, you would have guessed how struck i am with Vin Diesel. I have never liked his shows nor have i seen any. But The Pacifier? Oh gosh, it's a must-see! Plus, the baby boy in the movie, is very adorable! I felt like biting his cheeks..lol.


On a totally different note, i am still very undecided as to which course i should take. Public Relations or Psychology. Alot of people have told me that PR would suit me really well. But, i don't know.. I can't be doing PR forever right? I mean, i'll grow old and have a family and all, and won't be capable of being in functions, doing all sort of pr work. Where else, i am really interested to learn and know all about the internal system of the human body, like genes, behavious and how the human mind works. So, Psychology would be suitable. Oh, i don't know. I am equally passionate about both. Suggestions anyone?

Oh yea, i update new pictures in a totally new photo-hosting-place-whatever-you-call-it. ;)

steamyx, you now suck!

The stupid internet connection is really pissing me off! It kept disconnecting me from msn, and kept interrupting my photo-loading process. I hate it!

I am in such a bitchy mood right now, i don't know what to do, but blog. I have been reloading the photos again and again every since the connection decided to be a rascal. Bastard. And the msn? Don't get me started on that..

Come on Streamyx people!! Fix your damn connection! We didn't pay to get shitty connections you know! Move your arse and work!
(actually, i know you're working on it. but, please hurry up!..)

I went to Sunway Lagoon yesterday with my classmates. Boy, have i not been there in a long time! At first, our initial plan was to go on tuesday, which we did, but when we reached there, turns out that SL is closed on Tuesdays. Dashed our hopes. So, we decided to go again on Wednesday. Fun fun fun! Especially with crazy people like them. I cannot wait for ipoh! ;)

So came home yesterday from SL with flushed cheeks and a not so prominent tan, and still went out with Smo to midvalley. We wanted to catch Million Dollar Baby, but due to the jam on the federal highway on our way there, we reached a tad bit late for movie (we needed to eat first). It's not the first time we've forego movie-watching for food.. lol. What can i say? We are food-lovers! :)

1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve risks.

2. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

i am starting to appreciate people around me more..

So much has happened since i last updated.. I don't even know where to start.


My dearest friend, Shereen's, beloved grandma passed away on this day. I truly empathize with her. I know how close she is with her grandma, and how much she wishes that her grandma would live till the day she gets married, achieve her goals and so on. I too am very close to my grandma. I too want her to live to see my achieve the goals in my life. But in life, death is a very very unpredictable thing. When a person has to go, there is no way you can hold them back. Every start will always have an end. We all just have to learn how to let go..

I realised that i always take my grandma for granted. Getting irritated at her because of little things she does or say to me. I know, she has our best interest at heart, she always does. But sometimes, i just get really irritated. It's uncontrollable! I really have to learn how to control my temper and attitude. This applies to people around me too. I am starting to open up my eyes towards people around me, and appreciating them more. Well, not like i don't already, but.. more le.. ;p Anything is possible in this world..
*Reen girl, please be strong.. No matter what, always remember that all of us are here, caring for and loving you. She is at a much better place right now. Love you girl.

The remaining days:
I spent most of Wednesday and Thursday night till the wee hours of the morn, doing my Webpage Design assignment. Thankfully, everything manage to come together beautifully. *hApPy..HaPpY..hApPy..*
So now, i really really have to start studying for my finals. Finals is on the 11th and i have not even started studying. Argh.. i need to stop procrastinating and get organized, at least for this last stupid finals!! ~Shumbahdee Shlapp Me!..
