::Life's Little Mystery::

life requires lots of love, and loving brings life

Received a sad news yesterday about someone's passing. Someone whom we had last saw and had conversations with the night before at his brother's wedding.

It is as shocking to me as it is to everyone else, for it was not expected, not even thought of.

Sigh, life can be so cruel.

My heart goes out to his family. May he find peace and wellbeing wherever he is right now and may his family find peace and solace at this sad moment.

Tell me a story..

was what i said to him
i just wanted something to take the focus out of my cramps.
something that would deter my mind away from the pain... something about fantasies, faraway lands, make up stories etc. I'm a girl, what do you expect?

Tell me a story..

"Okay................ Lim Goh Tong was a typical China man, he grew up in.... " - he then proceeded with the life story of Uncle Lim in detail from his autobiography.



So next time when your children asks for a bedtime story, you'll tell them about Lim Goh Tong???

No, i'll have more stories to tell by then.

money money money

Today's word of the day is 'Materialism'.

I was brought up to value the true value of something rather than its material value. And i can't say that i am totally a saint right now but material wealth somehow or another still gets to me. Blame it on the media, or MTV, or the society.

The latest gadgets, the latest trends, the latest brands... what does it mean anyway? Self worth? I really don't know. Psychologists would agree that people addicted to material wealth are actually buying their own self worthiness. Is that true? I believe that to a certain extend because there are some people like that and then there are some who just simply have the money to spend on such things and like them, genuinely.

In today's society, the wealthy are the respected ones. Does that mean that the poor are not eligible of being respected? That could be one of the reason that type 1 people chase material wealth to gain the respect they long. The kid with the latest PSP, gameboy or whatever in school stands to have more kids wanting to be their friends. Materialism on everybody's part?

But lucky my parents brought us up well.. we always weighed practicality more favorably. That taught us to be more price cautious of things. But the most important question my parents have always asked us to ask ourselves when we are oogling at something with that strong urge to buy, "Do we really need it?". But now, i've added another important question on the list, "Will we use it?" That's all that matters really. Cost cautious questions i wish my kids in the future will learn how to ask themselves.

Materialism. Just turn on MTV's Sweet Sixteen and you'll know what i'm talking about. ;p


Simon taught me this ouija string thingy that allows you to find out how many kids will you have in the future and if it will be a boy or a girl. I've tried with my father's name and simon's parent's names and so far it all tallies! So, i tried mine....... and mine tallied with simons.

Have i already found my match at this age?? haha

I should consider myself lucky shouldn't i.

My new toy

After being carless for almost half a year, i will have a new toy to play with in a mere few days! Yay! Well, since the ye ol' faithful or rather known as the "p driver's car" has been passed down to my lil bro, i will be getting an all new car to drive around in. Not bad i say for a 20 year old.

It's a small and cute car, and the more i look at its brochures the more i like it! haha. It wasn't like we were thinking of another big car for our fourth car. So small, practical and cost savvy for me.

You can read all about it from here! :)

Happy Mother's Day

to all mothers everywhere
for their hardship in bringing up naughty children and still love them

For me, i do not only have one wonderful mother, but two! hehe..

My ever youthful Mother, who has never wavered in her believes for her three dirty disciplineless children. hehe ok, we're not that bad la.

And my darling GrandMother, whom is always there taking care of our every business, walking us home from primary school, cooking our meals and telling us all sorts of stories from a gazillion years ago.
Thank you for everything. Sorry if we didn't make a huge fuss out of Mother's Day like we did when we were younger, but it seems wrong to only make a fuss out of you guys only one day in a year when we can spread it out throughout the year. :)

We love you!

Beachy holiday

This was planned such a long time ago but we've never really gotten gungho enough to go. So when it finally came to the point of do or forever hold your peace, it was DO! hehe..

7 - 9 May, the four of us hopped into the car for a road trip and headed towards Awana Kijal, Terengganu for a sun kissed, water-filled holiday! And boy oh boy was it beyond our expectations. The beach, the apartment.. nice~ ;)

No more talking, just pictures..

The 3km white sandy beach. It looks kinda gloomy in the pic, but throughout the two days we were there, it was sunny and happy all the way and only rained at night.
Lazing at the beach
Homecooked dinner! :)
Giant Chess
A kiss for the queen! hehe.. shuddup.
Night at the beach
Digging for crabs.. -_-" I just stood there holding the torch light and camera and kicked sand into ppl's eyes while screaming like a bimbo. haha

Phew..was this a long post or what?! I took me one bowl of kuey tiow soup, 17 pieces of keropok lekor, one glass of apple juice and another glass of orange juice to finish this.

More pictures here!

And so it is..

Four months of waking up at the same time every single day, four months of wearing nothing but office wear, four months of covering my legs up in black stockings, four months of eating and sitting, four months of facing the tiger lady, four months of learnings..

It's all over now. Four months flew by just like that, after all the times of complaining and whining about not wanting to go to work, i'm missing it already. The people, the environment, the food! ;p, and my boss.

It is indeed a blessing in disguise for not being accepted in Petronas and then needling my way into where i was. If not, i would not have had the chance to work with one of Malaysia's PR queen, and the nicest people you could ever hope for as colleagues.

Maybe i was only a temp, but they treated me like an equal and never hesitated to lend a helping hand wherever and whenever possible. And for that, i am very thankful.

Going through my internship prepared me mentally and socially for what is in store when i start work in another year or so. It allowed me to wallow in the stress that comes with working and then rejoice in the fact that it is not permanent. I am still able to get out of it and continue with the carefree life of a student. Made me appreciate my student life. My last one at that.

Well, better not get emo over the end. What la me, emo when working, emo when not working. Nothing better to do meh..

Actually, i just want to say a huge ass thanks to everyone there who helped and guided me along the way. You made this learning process such an enjoyable experience. And i stand by it, a nicer bunch of people would be harder to find. :) Thanks.

Thank you.
