I'm home!!!!

I love my big home, big bedroom, big bed, my big and fat hamster, my piano, my big Apple computer, my big toilet, my big bathroom, my extremely big mirror on my wall, my parents' big cars, and my big stuffed animals.

Though I've noticed that the Internet connection has become slower, public transportation is fucked up, public toilets stink, and the people have become less courteous.

But things here are extremely cheap.



A random conversation between AD and his girlfriend:

GF: Have you had your dinner?
AD: Yes.
GF: What did you eat?
AD: Fried rice.
GF: What fried rice?
AD: Aiya, fried rice is fried rice lah, what do you mean what fried rice!

Yeah, I know it doesn't sound funny here, but K and I were laughing our asses off when we hear it. Especially when you get to see AD's reaction after the girlfriend asked him the stupid question.


My dad just bought a limited edition Tissot watch which cost RM 3800.


I want one too!!!!

Birthday dedication


There. I wished you.

Happy now?


Annoyed or confused?

On the first day of Materials Science lecture, the professor was explaining how some materials could help further prevent fatal car accidents.

He showed us a video of a car without the "protective material", and how the car was smashed into pieces. Then, he showed us a second video of a car with the "protective stuff", and how the shape of the car was still conserved.

The "unprotected" car was white, and the "protected" car was red.

So I started telling K,

"Do you know why the white car was smashed into mush but the red car was still intact? (To which K rolled his eyes; he was all ready to listen to my nonsensical ramblings) The car's condition has nothing to do with the presence of the 'protective material'. It's the colour of the car that affects it's damages. The white car was more badly damaged because it reflects all light. Therefore, the atoms vibrate more coz it needs more energy to reflect the light, hence, its kinetic energy increases. As the atoms vibrate more, the interatomic bonding distance increases and the interatomic bonding forces are easier to overcome, hence, the material is easier to be broken. The white car then turns to mush."

"The red car, on the other hand, absorbs the red light, hence, it has more internal energy coz it gains energy from light. Since it has more internal energy, its potential energy increases and its interatomic bonding forces become stronger, hence, its material is more difficult to break and it's shape is retained."

*BIG grin*

K rolls his eyes.

Are you annoyed, or confused?

Xenon T.

K got his fingernails stained at purplish blue-black after helping me dye my hair black the other day.

K: Whatever will I say to my mum when she sees my nails?
Me: Just tell her you accidentally stained yourself with some permanent ink or something lah.
K: Oh wait, I know. I'll tell her I stained myself with some chemicals during Lab.
Me: Yeah, tell her you got some iodine on your fingers.

I said iodine coz that was the first thing that came to my mind. His fingers were dark blue, and iodine turns dark blue when comes in contact with starch. You get my point.

Me: ... Wait. Iodine washes off easily and everyone knows that.
K: Just tell her I got some sort of chemicals on my hands and it stained my fingernails lah. As if she'll ask what kind of chemical it was.
Me: Ahh.... I know!! Tell her you got xenon trisulphide aqueous on your hands during an experiment coz you forgot to wear safety gloves.

I love being intellectually inaccurate.

It annoys the educated and confuses the not-so-learned.

I annoy K, I confuse his mum.


P.S.: Of course I know Xenon is a noble gas and therefore it cannot react with other elements, you idiot.

My first dota winning!

I won a game of Dota. Woo!

You guessed it.

Another photo uploaded via cell phone.

Gosh, wonder how high my phone bill will be by the end of this month?

Kiss kiss

One of my crazy (and stupid) photos I took during my visit to the Jurong Bird Park. The rest are coming soon.

Patience is a virtue...

Signing out.


I've recently learned how to upload pictures onto my blog via cell phone and I'm getting addicted to it. Here's my first random pic:

Wednesday, 26 November 2008


I promised I'd upload pics of my previous visit to the bird park, but K hasn't sent me the photos yet. They're still in his 5.0 megapixel camera phone.


For the past few days, things have been pretty monotonous. I wake up, procrastinate, brush my teeth, eat, procrastinate, take a bath, procrastinate, eat, play a few rounds of DotA, and whadya know! It's time for bed.

I know I've got some stuff to worry about (yeah, maybe they're not that important, but it's sorta making me not able to enjoy my short-lived happy moments with K) but I guess it turns out I'm just the sort who leaves things undone to the very last minute.

I am usually inspired to work by last minute panic.

Other misc: I'm almost broke, I have constipation, I've put on weight, I'm hungry but I feel guilty for spending money on food.


I wish my daddy were a billionaire.

Holidays are here!!!!!!!!!!!!

To start off, K and I had a sumptuous dinner buffet at Seoul Garden at Takashimaya.

$21++ per pax.

We ate and ate and ate and ate
and ate and ate and ate...

Till we could eat no more.

I finished up an entire plate of beef all by myself!!!!!

I *heart* beef!!!

One of the most delicious meals I have ever had in AGES.


Yesterday, K and I visited the Jurong Bird Park.

We had such a great time there.

I promise I'll upload the pics tomorrow.



If you have read my previous posts, you may have noticed that I've recently got a new addiction: Audition.

Not anymore.

Somehow, I'm beginning to *gasp* see why guys can sit at the computer playing DotA for hours on end.

My fave hero?

Kardel Sharpeye.

He shoots far enough and his speed ain't too slow. Yeah, I like snipers. I don't really fancy melee heroes coz as I see it, you're gonna hurt yourself if you have to get that close to your enemies to kill them.

My highest achievement?

Both heroes level 20, AI wins with 3/0 kill on easy mode.

I know.

Don't laugh.

Ask and thou shall receive.

*Due to some misunderstanding, this post has been removed*

But I still hate Kelvin Koay for hurting my best friend.

No bad feelings, Jewel.

Exam's over!!!!


Spent the whole of last night/this morning watching online movies from Veoh, before falling asleep at 7 a.m..

Of course, not before snapping a photo of this scenic dawn:

I never was able to wake up early enough to see the sunrise, but at least I could stay up late enough to do so.


Lotsa post-exam activities planned.

First off, a sumptuous dinner at a posh restaurant.

Stay tuned!!!!

Of exams.

Ever since I was in primary school, I have always wished that I could refer to books during exams.

I hated it that I had to memorize stuff.
I hated it that I had to study everything that was in the books, only to have them not appearing in exams.
I hated it that I had to read a single sentence over and over again, just to find that it's utterly impossible to understand it.

I wished and wished and wished that I could sit for an open book exam.

That'd be the day I'll finally secure myself an A without even having to study.

How wrong I was.

Try sitting for the Physics 1 open book exam.

You can take a million books into the exam hall and you still can't answer those damned questions.

University students are allowed to refer to books during exams. How fun. I can't wait to get there.



Less than 24 hours before my Materials Science exam, I'm:

- Enjoying a hearty sushi buffet at Sakae Sushi with K. $16 per pax.
- Playing Audition, an online dance game which I've recently got addicted to.
- Crying over irrelevant stuff.
- Procrastinating.
- Sleeping.
- Animatedly discussing about 'un-academic' stuff.
- Boasting about how easy the past years are.

Less than 12 hours before my Materials Science exam, I'm:

- Blogging.
- Not studying.
- Considering playing a couple of rounds of Audition after blogging.
- Not taking into consideration the fact that I might feel sleepy the next day if I don't go to bed right now.
- Happily anticipating the day when exams are finally over.
- Feeling damn confident about Materials Science exam.

Is there something wrong with me, or what?

One day, my over-confidence is gonna eat me till there's nothing left.

Who are you?

...but you've become

Somebody else round everyone else
You're watching your back like you can't relax
You're tryin' to be cool you look like a fool to me
Tell me

Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated
Life's like this you
And you fall and you crawl and you break
and you take what you get and you turn it into honesty
and promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it
no no no

You come over unannounced
dressed up like you're somethin' else
where you are ain't where it's at you see
you're making me
laugh out when you strike your pose
take off all your preppy clothes
you know you're not fooling anyone
when you've become

Somebody else round everyone else
Watching your back, like you can't relax
Trying to be cool you look like a fool to me
Tell me

Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated
Life's like this you
and You fall and you crawl and you break
and you take what you get and you turn it into
promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it
no no no

I just don't understand how some people are like that.

It kinda pisses me off.

But still.

It's forgivable.

I love you.

I surrender

Why is it that USM students pass their exams with flying colours without studying but NTU students fail their exams although they study like hell?


In my whole of 18 years of life, exams have never succeeded in stressing me out so much that I break down and cry.

This time, I surrender.

I've reached my limit.

I cry.

Happy now?

Life's greatest lesson.

I am aware that there are a significant number of people who dislike me.

Regardless in NTU, or back in Penang. Or anywhere else, in that case.

They have problems with my attitude, my thinking, my personality, my language and whatnot.

So far, it hasn't bothered me.

It doesn't bother me that there are a significant number of people out there who loathe me, because I know there are many others who love me for who I am.

I know what I am doing, and I know I haven't done anything wrong towards anybody.

But isn't it a little too much when you allow your resentment towards someone influence you to inflict hurt to that person on purpose?

Isn't it a little too much when you adopt her life as a joke, where you can mess around with and enjoy watching her suffer as a result of your irresponsible actions? Is it so fun to make her cry just for your enjoyment?

Is it that fun to be able to ruin somebody's life, just to give yourself the illusion that you're greater than others, because in reality you know you're just a pathetic nobody?

Is it fun to be able to spread vicious gossips about your enemies just to get them into trouble, even to the extent of influencing parents to think that I'm bad company? Is it that fun to see parents coming into play, banning their kids from being friends with me?

There's a parent who thinks that I am a promiscuous, shameless girl who hops from one guy to another faster than the speed of light and thinks I put curses onto my enemies, hence, disapproving of her son's friendship with me.

That's only whom I know of.

So what if a guy drives up to my home to take me out? So what if you see me in the shopping mall with him? Does it necessarily mean that we have something going on? Does it have to mean that I'm flirting with him?

Does that mean I am a playgirl?

Can't it be that we're just friends?

So now I can't even have the freedom to be friends with the opposite sex, without having others thinking I am a cheap slut?

Who knows what other worse things other people might have heard about me?

I have learnt the hard way never to trust anyone.


Not even my closest friends.

Not even the people whom I spent more than half of my lifetime sticking with, through thick and thin.

Friends, please accept my greatest apologies.

I love you guys to bits, but I cannot trust anyone of you anymore.

I only hope that I shall not receive anymore bad news which will eventually result in the closing down of my blog.

It's my life, and I will not allow anybody else to interfere with it. I shall have my privacy respected.

Succeeding this blog post, I am sure the drama will continue.

In a more careful way of course, considering the fact that some of their actions have leaked out to me.

Just a note, isn't it interesting how much I can influence people to think of me, to talk about me, to try to make an impact in my life? Gosh, I must be pretty important in their lives to be able for them to go to so much trouble just for me.

Usually, I don't even bother trying to hurt my enemies coz they're too insignificant for me to waste my precious time on.

It seems that I am a pretty significant figure in many people's lives, for them to spend a significant amount of their time trying to hurt me.

I'm famous. Lol.

Kevin and I? It's none of your business whether we're an item or not.

Get out.

Exam stress is making me emo.

Hence, the following photos I took of myself.

*I told K1 that I was gonna post them here and he gave a huge disapproval coz it contains explicit elements so I guess its the glums for today*

House keeping.

Me: I can't take it anymore. This room is sooooo dirty. I plan to spring clean it after the holidays when I come back next year.

Room mate: There's something else funny about the room...

Me: What?

Room mate: I dunno why, sometimes the floor can become sticky.

Me: Hmm...

Room mate: Especially during rainy days.

Me: ...

Me: I wish I could fill up the entire room with water, *shake shake shake*, then pour the water away and the whole room will become clean.

Room mate: ...

Is a very, very cool, interesting, and funny game.

Click to play!!!!!

Yes, I mean it. Click.


You won't regret it!!!!

Garlic bread.

A few days ago, I was procrastinating in K1's room as usual, cursing the horribly humid weather.

I was telling him about how my friends and I cooked pasta and garlic bread together for dinner.

Me: Hey, why don't we cook garlic bread together? It'll be fun.
Him: Huh??? Now???
Me: Yeah, why not?

Can't blame me. I love doing things unplanned.

Him: Okay... But I dunno how to cook garlic bread wor...
Me: Don't worry, I know. My friends and I cooked before. (A half-lie. They cooked, I helped by being the amateur food critic.)

So, out of the blue, we decided to cook garlic bread.

We walked to the nearby mini mart to get some ingredients.

Butter, bread, garlic, and garlic powder.

First, I applied butter on both sides of the bread while he chopped the garlic into tiny pieces. Then, I showered the buttered bread with lots (and I mean lots) of garlic powder. On both sides. Finally, I sprinkled the chopped up garlic onto the bread. Also on both sides. I used up the whole loaf of bread and the whole bar of butter.

Of course, in the process, there were lots of trials and errors...
"Oi, I thought you said you cooked before with your friends????" "Yeah, I helped them taste the food..."

He fried them to a aromatic, golden brown.


Okay, maybe it doesn't look too good in the picture, but still. We cooked it all by ourselves!!!

Thus, we wasted three hours of studying time cooking garlic bread.

Exam's coming so awfully soon.


UPDATE: When I came back today, my roomie was already asleep, while still hugging a bear. I suspect it's given by her boyfriend, since she told me she was going to visit him yesterday. Aww... How sweet!!! (I know this is none of my business, but I just felt like saying it here coz I'm happy for her. Lol.)

Another HORRIBLE day.

Yesterday, I woke up early for a two-hour Physics lecture.

I. Had. Physics. Lecture. On. A. Freaking. Saturday. Morning.

I was thirty minutes late coz I overslept. After paying considerable attention for the next thirty minutes, I feel asleep for the whole of the second hour.

Wonder why I attended the lecture in the first place.

At least there got air conditioning. Better sleeping there than sleeping in my room. Lol.

After the lecture, I was sooooo sleepy I fell right back to sleep. Later, I arrived at church thirty minutes late coz I overslept. Again. Stupid freaking cab fare cost me $22.20.

After church, I had to go all the way to Bukit Batok coz I had some problems with my new phone. The stupid battery cover didn't close properly. Apparently, there's something wrong with the design/shaping/whatever. I stood at the roadside for ten whole minutes but I couldn't catch a single cab. I could walk to the MRT station which is just 15 minutes away, but I was too lazy. Having no choice, (it was apparent that I wouldn't be able to catch a cab) I walked.

When I was just about three minutes (yes, only THREE FREAKING MINUTES AWAY) from the MRT station, I FINALLY caught a cab.

Lucky me.


I checked the cab but I couldn't see any device for NETS payment (i.e., payment by ATM card).

My wallet was almost empty. I was (yes, though I hate to admit it) cashless.

How embarrassing; I didn't have enough money to pay for my cab fare.

So, I told the cab driver to turn back to the MRT station.

A brief, five minute cab ride which took me practically nowhere cost me $5.

In addition, the cab driver told me that considering the traffic jam, it would probably be faster if I took the MRT anyway.

First, I wasted time coz I couldn't catch a cab. Next, I wasted time and energy walking to the MRT station, of where I finally caught a cab. Then, I realised I didn't have money to pay for it. Hence, I wasted even more precious time in the cab. Not to mention, the FIVE FREAKING BUCKS. Finally, to receive news from the cab driver that I would probably save more time (and money) if I took the MRT instead.

Double, triple, quadruple pissed off.

If only I had just walked straight to the MRT station after church, I would have saved myself a whole lot of time and money.

After an awfully long ride, I finally arrived at the Bukit Batok MRT station. There was an ATM machine there.

YAY!!! CASH!!!

But when I stuck my card into the machine, it said "We are currently unable to dispense cash. Sorry for the inconvenience caused."



Feeling even more pissed off than ever, I went to the Singtel store.

Stupid que was awfully long. Again, I had to wait.

As if waiting for a cab, waiting in the MRT, and wasting lots and lots of precious time isn't enough.

When it was finally my turn, the girl who served me told me to wait while she changed a new battery cover for me.

See? Wait again. Sigh...

Then... Voila!

The new cover didn't fit either. She said that there must be something wrong with the phone and I'd have to change the whole handset if I wanted it fixed.

So, she said, "Please wait while I get a number for you."


I was about to explode.

After I got my number, I had to wait another 10 minutes.

When I was finally served, the attendant told me that if I wanted to change my handset, I'd have to bring along the box which the phone came in when I first purchased it coz they needed the serial number which was on the box or something.


I didn't bring the box.

I was so frustrated that I was speechless.

She asked me to come back the next day, because if I came any later than that, my request wouldn't be entertained anymore coz the exchangeable period was only seven days after purchase.

I took the public transport back to campus.

No more cabs for me.

By the time I reached back, it was already 7.30 p.m..

I wasted THREE WHOLE FUCKING HOURS, and I accomplished nothing.

My mood was worsened by the fact that I could have spent the time studying for my exam, which is due in 10 days.

So, today, I went back to Singtel.

I finally got to exchange for a new phone.

So much time, so much energy, so much money.

Just because my phone's battery cover couldn't close properly.


Sometimes, you just wonder how much your sacrifices are actually worth.
