Welcome to the Family - Mocha & Latte

Welcome to the Tan family! 1 month old baby Syrian hamsters Mocha & Latte!

Frankly giving you names give me headache and I am pondering whether to leave you guys nameless like the previous hamster. The previous one is just called "Ham Ham" for convenient sake. The major factor that prevents me from naming you guys/gals - I have no idea what your genders are! Even the all so mighty Mr Internet is left speechless this time round.

Then Mr Internet decided to throw me one piece of internet that I didn't really ask for, but got me real interested. I can conditioned you guys to react to me! You have no idea how tempting this is considering how you guys didn't exactly warmed up to me (is it my face? blame my mama...).

Therefore the unisex names - Mocha and Latte are born! That, and the fact that I luv Starbucks!

So once again welcome to the family and I will try my best to remember your birthday - 25 November 2010. Haven't really decided yet whether to do an yearly or monthly celebration but leaning more towards monthly or quarterly considering your short life spans. Let you know when the time comes.

US Trip (6st day, 24th nov 2010)

Woke up by the sound of Hailey' alarm. She must be tired too since she took quite a long time to reach it and turn the alarm off.

Dammit...just as I was getting a good night's sleep.

We went for another field trip today - to Witchita mountains. Awesome place with many endangered animals in the refuge, e.g. Buffalos, Elps, prairie dogs etc.

Prairie dogs are the cutest thing ever! And doesn't look anything like a dog.

Don't believe me? Just see the pic below:

Its like a safari tour today.

Might be going to gym today if there's mood and time. Cya tmr~

US Trip (4th & 5th day,22th & 23th nov 2010)

22th is a full day of school. Super boring! The teacher is a nice old lady who likes to mumble to herself. Drained my energy just trying to listen to her talk.

23th however is an outdoor field trip day! Not very happening but at least we get to go outta the classroom and wander around instead of listening to her talk...and talk...and talk. We went to this urban praire which has a creek where another professor (fat with long curly white hair) explained to us how they determine if the water is healthy. Seems that there's such way of just looking at it and you will know for sure. You will have to examine and take the water samples back to the lab for testing.

So science right? I know.

I have no idea why I am taking this class. Unless I want to be a weather reporter with really atas scientific knowledge.

Not really that interested frankly.

After that we went to lunch at this Louie's Sports Grill place. Not sure how good is their grilled food, but the pizza is good! Beats Pizza's Hut anyday. And please go bankrupt soon, California's 2-for-1 pizza. No idea how you can survive this long with pizza that tastes like flour, cheese and tomato paste. Separately.

After lunch, we went back to the school for a presentation by OERB (Oklahoma Energy Reservation Board I think...), and after that to a lab where they tested various water, oil or other samples.

Went to Dollar Tree when class ends (at 4.30pm...YEAH!!!), but we didn't bought much. Even Jayvern agrees that it gets boring the second time. Seriously its fun, but only when you have things to buy and is in a shopping mood. And even then I don't get as high as Jayvern when she sees cheap sweets.

Photos up asap. Stay tuned...

US Trip (3nd day,21th nov 2010)

Went for orientation. Expected it to be the super childish kind with lotsa ice breakers but fortunately its just Virginia Oden sharing lotsa much needed information (and warnings) with us.

Went for a tour in the 'school bus' and visited the Oklahoma bombing memorial park and museum. Nothing much there. Got bored after just a few minutes.

Then the bus drove us to the Golden Corral for lunch. In the midst we past by the liquor warehouse 2 times and Jayvern and Sendya got real excited. Ironically the only alcohol in the house is Mojito.

Golden Corral (yup, 2 'r's) is fantastic. Akin to Mache but so much better! Unlimited refill. Buffet style! What's more, its like a standard price for everything. With so much good stuff to eat, I am starting to worry about my parents' reaction to my new body size when I dropped down at Changi Airport 3 weeks later.

Sendya arranged 3 gummy bears together (in Jayvern's unwanted bow of ice cream) to form a 'threesome'. Jayvern stubbornly refused to tell Sendya how to spell 'threesome'.

After that I was so shagged when I got back home, I slept at 7 p.m.!


US Trip (2nd day,20th nov 2010)

Was supposed to be fetching Gena from the airport today. Arranged with Shirley (is it spelled this way?) and Jocelyn (same previous comment applies) to go to Walmart. Instead we head to Dollar Tree where every single item is EXACTLY USD1!!!!

Try beating that Value Dollar shop. Your item varies from $1.05 to $12.05 (I think...higher or lower depending on items on sale for the period) lor. No consistency at all. QC failed big time.

After fetching Gena, we went back to our hotel and sleep after a expensive and not really that tasty lunch. Lunching at restaurants (other than the fast food kind) is so not worth it.

We head to Walmart for some heavy grocery shopping. The shopping power of women can never be underestimated. We shopped for a total of about 3 plus hours. Some minor melodrama happened when we lost Jayvern and Hailey missing. literally. For a moment there Ic contemplate the use of intercom. But "Can Jayvern and Hailey reports to the customer service counter please? Your friends are waiting for you. I repeat.." sounds...erm...cheeky? Therefore we decide to save both them and us embarrassment lest we get mistaken for country pumpkin.

Luckily we found them in the end. Stay energetic for quite sometime after that. Managed to only fall into deep slumber at around 2a.m.

*Photos up asap. Stay tuned...*

US Trip (1st day, 19th nov 2010)

Using the in flight moving map application. I see that I am in the air above Philippines. Already I wanna get down. Can't find the toliet initially. Such a noob. Can feel the other passengers laughing at me. I like the turbulence, the setting off and touching down (◦'⌣'◦)
- Touched down at narita and to our surprise, our flight is delayed for abt 2 hour! (From 3.15pm tkt to 4.50 tkt) Luckily it turned to be a scare, still delay though. To 3.50pm tyt. Now its 3.14pm. Still waiting....
- Saw snow at Minneapolis airport! White blanket covering entire Minneapolis! Awesome!
- 2nd flight delay of the day from Minneapolis to Oklahoma City for abt 45 mins! What luck!
- Small and cramped Delta Connection has a wide array of soft drinks. Still prefer the comparatively spacious (but still tight aisles) to this domestic flight. Pretzels are yucky but I finished 2 packets of those biscuits. The ONLY flight attendent (compare that to abt 6-12 attendents on an international flight) is a fat male with an attractive voice. Lol!
- Touched down at Will Rogers airport. Waiting for our luggage when the coveyor belt stops suddenly. Turns out some idiot kicked the emergency stop button. But we got our luggages in the end. Met 2 nice part-time 'schoolmates/modulemates' (.....watever....). Nice persons. Bonded with them over a salty macdonald meal. Its dirt cheap btw. Hate the strong winds and blazing cold though.

*Photos up asap. Stay tuned...*

Beyond Expectation (The Competitor in Me)

This is the email sent to me by my values and culture lecturer:

Dear Megan Tan Wei Shan- 

Your grade on Essay #2 is "A-".
 --Leo Werneke

This might not be a great grade for most, but I am already exceptionally grateful. Especially considering the fact that I missed most of Leo's classes and never return after the break until the lessons are over.

I so afraid he will flunk me cause I am 100% sure he knew about my absence.

Even got caught red-handed a few times.

To show my gratitude, I am gonna work real hard on the post assignment!!! real.

I had already finished the post assignment and it was sloppily done. And it will take a giant buffalo to make me redo it again.


I promise to add in if I think of anything Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡.̮Ơ̴̴͡

Packing (12 Days to OKC)

Luggage packing is a tiring job. I didn't even get much today!

But thank goodness I made a checklist of the stuff I would put in my luggage, handcarry and what I would wear respectively! How's that for orderly?

I thought I misplaced my US dollars yesterday. Nearly broke into tears. I probably won't had found it if not for my determination of 'not gonna sleep tonight if I don't find my usd".

Sometimes you just need pure determination and a stroke of luck. Memory is important too but then its not always reliable.

Nothing beats the real thing

After staring for several hours at my computer (doing my v&c essay. Extremely slow progress, dammit!), the view out my window seem to have more vibrant colors than usual. HD LCD monitors can't beat this even if they tried...

Testing Post - Nails

I don't think I'm apt for growing nails. Since I start growing them about 3 weeks ago, I had been scratching my neck with them. Either I should just learn to not flick my hair (always scratched my neck with my nails when I brush my hair away from my face) or I should just cut my nails.

Its so freaking weird...

I woke up by the sound of alarms.....coming from my parents' bedroom, which is 2 rooms away!

Must be sleeping really lightly by then.

Of course the 3 alarms sounding at the same time help a little somehow.

The reasons for the alarms are that I am heading to my 2nd Aunt's bdae party in Johor. Dunno if I will do another post about it with pictures cause I doubt I will take any. Since I am not a photo person and all...THAT plus the fact that I will only bring my bb8520, which comes equipped with a ok quality 2mp camera. Okay quality for a 2mp but not really wonderful for taking pictures.

We'll see how.

And of course, my new Touchy will be coming as well. Helps to drive boredom. I am so prepared with the frantic downloading of apps yesterday.

Oh, mum's calling.

Tada, off to showers.

Virgin Touch

I got my new Ipod Touch! Anyone wanna congratulate me? Or at least reprimand me for wasting money unnecessarily?

Saturday, October 9, 2010

Finished my AOW exam today. Don't think I did too fantastic cause nothing went into this dumbass of a head even after studying for so long. Think I'm getting old....

No more school after this.

Anyway I checked whether my salary was banked in today and I got more than I deserved! Mandy I LOVE U!!! I didn't work so much but I got more pay? Haha...don't mind if I keep coming back for more~

Only like about a month to the day when I am supposed to depart for the states. Its coming too fast yet not fast enough. One moment I was dreading to go to a foreign country to chiong studies, another (moment) I am like hoping it will come faster so that I can have no exams no more. Super weird mindset but its okay, don't mind me.

Preparation for departure is like only 45% done! OMG! WHAT ELSE DO I NEED??!!!! PANIC ATTACK!!!!

Visa Approved!!

Yeah! Visa was approved yesterday!

Another thing out of the way! Woohoo~

The previous batch went to the American Embassy on Tuesday and they said it was a long and tedious process. The horror stories really creep us out and that's why yesterday (Friday), many of us are rather fidgety and scared of what's going to happen.

Aside from the main entrance which we are to pass the cumbersome security checks (liquids are allowed but I have to take a sip to prove that it wasn't liquid bomb (-_-III)), the rest are pretty smooth sailing. I love counter 5 where we have to be 'interviewed' by a pretty American woman. She is so pretty and friendly! I don't mind getting interviewed but her over and over again but then she have to talk louder. I have to tip toe over the counter to hear her!

Anyway the pretty American woman told me my visa is approved and I am now holding a pink slip to collect my visa and passport (they took it =_( ) next Tuesday.

Can't wait!

What should I do??!!!

Times passes so fast. At the blink of an eye, its already Sept.


My god, that means I have less than 2 months to prepare for my trip to oklahoma, usa at the end of the year!

I am super clueless on what should I do now. Ever since I bought the luggage last month, i had been staring at it (and I think its staring me back as well. What a defiant luggage) wondering what should I put inside 1st.

Till date, the inside is still clean and shiny. And empty.

I can't pack the clothes cause I will still need to wear those. I have no thermal wears and thermal wears are super exp in Singapore. No turtleneck sweaters as well as I am quite reluctant to purchase those as I dun like the feeling of something struggling me.

Aside from clothings, can I put other utilities inside...erm...I scared it kena squashed by the clothings leh. That's y I wanna put those hygiene or watever products on the top.

Arghh!!!! Frustrated!!!!

Me: Mum did you touched my phone just now?

Mum: was ringing so I pressed until the sound stops.

Me: (mumbling) No wonder it was shut down...

Mum: I press until the ringing stops lo. And it did!

Sometimes my mum is just too cute.

I love emoticons but so far all I know is "T-T" and "=)".

Super bland.

Good thing I found this on the web. It gives a vast glossary of text emoticons to give your sentences more "feelings".

And some are really interesting! For example, guess what this is:

It's a rabbit? Damn cute rite?

Super Bo Liao...

Guess I am really bored to the max! I am reading up stuff about Chinese Horoscopes. least its with the elements so it should be something different. At least not everyone knows about chinese horoscopes with elements.....right?

Mine is Fire Rabbit.

Feb 2, 1927 to Jan 22, 1928
Jan 29, 1987 to Feb 16, 1988

Rabbit people love to play under the moonlight. Quite fanciful, they respond to the power and beauty of nature and are always being pulled one way and the other to examine what they find. They are the luckiest of all twelve signs! But, it's more a result of "the harder I work, the luckier I get" than taking crazy chances. They are cautious, conservative, bright, and have a good head for business. Supremely pleasant to have around, these affectionate, naturally shy peacemakers seldom ever lose their temper. They sometimes appear to be singing the blues because of a natural but short-lived tendency towards despondency. Rabbits always inspire deep admiration and trust.

Ginger Soup and Ginger Noodles are among the keys to good health!!

The Fire Rabbits stand out from the crowd of other Rabbits. You might expect Rabbits to be passive, quiet, and loners. Not so, the Fire Rabbits. These extroverts are leaders of the pack! Fire Rabbits intuitively sense the right way to bring out the best in themselves and other people. They are brave creatures, thirsty for life. Others eagerly follow them because of the promise of adventure and great fun, and they are never disappointed. Visionary explorers, Fire Rabbits inspire others to see beyond the surface. Unlike other Rabbits, Fire Rabbits have the potential to be truly rich. Enormously capable and hardworking, Fire Rabbits can achieve great things others cannot match. Captains in charge of their lives, they experience smooth sailing in their careers. The multifaceted Fire Rabbits experience great versatility in their lives. Their interests can range from Agatha Christie to bungee jumping, from caviar to enchiladas, from snowskiing to Scrabble. Speaking of Scrabble, spell Love: L-O-V-E is very kind to Fire Rabbits. Excellent lovers, they rapturously charm their partners with cozy fireplaces, affectionate hugs, and, most of all, undying support and loyalty.

Famous RABBIT people: Hu Shih, Hu Yao-Bang, Kim Young Sam, Sally Ride, Leonardo Di Caprio, Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Arturo Toscanini, Leontyne Price, Clare Boothe Luce, Tiger Woods.

Don't really like the last person mentioned, but I guess I will forgive and forget. Besides, he is the only name I recognised besides Leonardo Di Carpio.

Online game frenzy today.

Love this game.

Haha..I lost. Aim is to get 100 cups of noodles cooked without consumers flaring up. I missed it by only 8 more cup noodles to go. Boo hoo~

It is initially developed by Nissan Japan to promote their products. Super fun lor~

I know SG also develop games for marketing purposes ( recently I just played one developed by NYP regarding NDP 2010), but none is really THAT interesting.

Finally win! Woohoo~

Kind Soul

Was looking through the comments on the Yahoo! News page regarding the statement issued by MM Lee regarding the recent floods all over Singapore. Most of the commenters are dissatisfied with MM Lee's failure to address the problem and admit the mistake, in addition to shifting the blame on Singaporeans again.

But this...really make it on the top on my list.

So kind. Still show concern for the rest of the Singaporeans cause he scared other people kena dragged into the matter. I can imagine the end 'OK?' is spoken with a cute pleading tone.

You go, Local!

Lenovo S10-3

Been having Lenovo S10-3 for quite sometime now and can't really bring myself to truthfully say this is my new "Digital Pet". My Dell Studio One 19 currently still holds that spot. For a number of reasons.

For those who have no idea what a S10-3 is. Well..its a netbook. Look at the picture below to get the ball rolling.
Everyone who seen it so far likes the criss cross mosaic pattern of the cover. I do too and still love it now. In fact that's what make me purchased it in the first place.

What a big mistake. A SGD578 dollars mistake.

Okay first thing first, let's start with the thing that's REALLY BOTHERING ME - ITS FREAKINGLY AGONIZINGLY HAIR-TEARINGLY SLOW!!!!!

If i know it will be this bad. I should had just get a laptop. Don't mind the size.

The netbook seems light enough to my friends but I had weighed a number of netbooks on my hand before. And trust me, my hands had felt lightest. I did weighed the S10-3 before the purchase though. But that was without batteries. Once again, I had fallen into prey of the infamous 'battery trap' again. Just like what I did with my Dell laptop (now in the hands of the evil twins). When will I ever learn????

Something fascinating is the QS (Quick Start) button. Main purpose of the thing is for quick access/bootup for web surfing purposes. Tried it but since it doesn't startup my Mobile BroadBand program, I'd never really see the whole thing go through. Once day I might bring it out someday but that will be quite a painful chore as till date, I had seen no netbook bag to my fancy.

The big joke. Nobody in the world, judging for personal experience and online readers and editors reviews, would use this thing in his or her right mind unless he or she is desperate without a mouse at hand. Nuff said.

Well the rest is still minor issues, its the speed (or lack of) that is really killing my impatient soul. Regardless its the only thing I have and is able to bring to the states so I guess I have to really make do. Let's pray pray pray HARD that it will get SO MUCH better. PLEASE~~~

PPS Fever - Alvin and The Chipmunks

PPS fever continues today. Today its Corpse Bride and Alvin and The Chipmunks.

I watched Corpse Bride years ago in the theaters....I think. If not I can't explain the familiarity of the movie. Its alright, just a little disgusting to watch when having a meal. Especially the ugly maggot.

Alvin and the Chipmunks however is something totally new to me. I remember years ago I used to scoff at people who paid money to watch it in the theaters. Boy was I wrong. Once I started, I can't stop! Theodore is the cutest. Still puzzled why Alvin is the "main chipmunk lead" though. He did nothing really special in the movie. Must be a personal favorite of the script writer.

Dave last job is in an advertising firm! So related to what I just studied!

I discovered this always happens. Things related to my studies usually appears after the entire thing (course and exams) is over. Seldom do things appear in between studies. Not to say they don't though. They do, just SELDOM.

Twisted !

Was playing the game [Natalie Brooks: Mystery at Hillcrest High] when I saw this....So messed up.

They got the astrology part right. least the Sagittarius. That's all I knew anyway. Haha~

But they really need to get their facts right on the Chinese horoscopes. I born in 1987 but I don't think I'm a Cat. In fact I know for sure that I'm a Rabbit! I am Chinese and I know these things.

Seriously~ Can't they just go a Google search or something? Surely that wouldn't take much of their game developing time! Moreover it will reflect better on the company. Now its just a joke!

What I Do During Break - June 2010

PPS is a good thing! Been watching so many wonderful stuff on it the past two weeks. So great I decided to rekindle my interest for PPS. Haha~

Fav anime at the mo is “天才宝宝” aka Aka-Chan To Boku and How to train your dragon 3d.
Speaking of "How To Train Your Dragon 3D", really regret no watching in its wonderful true Imax form while its in the theaters. The 3D effects looks damn cool~ Esp the beg where the waves looks like it will splash into your face and the end where Toothless was flying through the rocks.

This time I am going to watch Despicable Me no matter what. If nobody's watching with me I will drag my family along. Bwahahaha~

Friendship Trauma

I guessed I am not good in making and maintaining friendships. To be frank, I always felt that its a miracle I have ANY friends at all. I am not a good friend and I always knew that. I do not give people presents mostly because I am brought up in a family whose tradition is doesn't include celebrating birthdays. Looking back, my primary school and secondary school do not celebrate birthdays as often as they do now.

Even so..... I am all the more grateful for all the friends that stayed with me till now. Eva, Shereen, Vanessa, LD....I know it wasn't easy. I am not the automatic sort. Neither am I the super fun and exciting type.

But then I do not think I deserve this. If you don't want to be friends. Just tell me so. We both know the relationship is strained. And its making me bad tempered cause its just so damn irritating to see us pretend.

Many a times I wanted to just tell you straight so that we can get it over and done with. But deep inside, I keep hoping that it will blow over and everything will be alright again.

I dunno if that day will ever comes. But right now, I don't how much more I can take.

So I am begging you....please end it?

Friday, June 4, 2010

Did I Do Wrong? Don't Think So~

Seriously. U never treat me right and now you expect me to be responsible for ur stuff?

How old do you think you are?

No thanks, I already have 2 immature brothers. Don't need you 2 to add to my headache.

And all those craps about you understanding us...pui~ Den you should have either saw it coming or at least understand why I back out, don't you?

And I told you 2 days before. You ample time to avoid panicking during the last min. When you said you respect my decision, I was relieved. I should have known. You respect nothing. Especially not me.

This US trip has already turned into a disaster. If you don't wanna travel w/me in the end, its fine. Good thing I have backup plans. Don't think you are the only 'friends' I have.

If you are angry, lemme tell you sth. You shouldn't be. CAUSE I AM F***ING FURIOUS RITE NOW! I SHOULD BE responsible? Now you look me yeah? Why don't you give me all your money then? I will be responsible and spend it all for you. I will try my hardest to spend it all so just give me your money. I promised I will complete this 'difficult' mission.

So much anger in my stomach. It's making me look fatter than usual. And I don't look very slim in the 1st place.

ARGGHHHH....F*** you!

Revealation from Sleeping Patterns

[graphic via]

  • Fetus position - A whopping 41% of participants sleep in this curled-up manner. Women are twice as likely to rest like this and it is listed as the most common position. These sleepers are said to have a tough exterior but are still sensitive and may appear to be shy but warm up quickly.
  • Log position - If you sleep on your side with both arms down, you are a social, easy-going person who is trusting, sometimes to the point of being gullible. The study showed 15% of people sleep like a log.
  • Yearner position - A close third is the side-lying position with both arms out in front of the body, with 13% of partipants sleeping like this. Yearners are noted to be open-minded and still cynical, suspicious, and stubborn about sticking to decisions once they are made.
  • Soldier position - These sleepers lie on their backs with arms down and kept close to the body. This 8% study is said to be reserved, quiet, without fuss, and hold themselves and others to a high standard. Soldier sleepers have a higher likelihood for snoring due to the flat-back position, which may not cause them to wake up often but may result in a less restful night's sleep.
  • Freefall position - Those people who lie on their bellies with arms under or wrapped around a pillow with head turned to the side, make up 7% of the population studied. Freefallers are brash, outgoing, and are very uncomfortable with criticism.
  • Starfish position - Sleepers who lie on their backs with arms up near their head or the pillow account for 5% of participants. These people are good listeners, helpful, and are uncomfortable being the center of attention. People who sleep in starfish position are more likely to snore and to suffer from a poor night's sleep more often.
The research reveals most people stay in the same position all night and only 5% lay differently night by night. Also interesting is that the study showed only one in ten people cover their bodies entirely with a blanket, with most people exposing an arm, leg, or both feet.

I finds the above article interesting cause Yahoo News seldom publish this kind of article. Moreover I am a fan of these things *wink*.

1st day of semester. Not really bad.

Less is more - the motto for today. Hate my mouth. And you too brain. Think 3 times before you speak next time.

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Decided. I'm too lazy. Gonna just wait for the high-res pics from LD then just upload it as a single entry. Let the pictures do the talking. I betcha speaks more than I could ever type in any blog entry.

Sunday, April 25, 2010

Got the all the photos already. Will blog about it maybe tmr. Coffee hangover today. Will I ever listen? Kena coffee hangover so many times already but still wanna drink.

My contact lenses break again! Second time already. At first I suspect its my a bit longer than my usual nails but soon dismissed that thought as the first time it breaks, my nails are super short (freshly bitten. Haha...).

Erm...maybe its the way I handle them. Too rough? But it seldom happens before with my normal blue-tinted contacts. Maybe the colored contacts are thinner than the normal ones. Gotta asked someone seemingly experienced. Like Ivy.

On a side note, still haven't fully recovered from Tioman. Its a fun and friendly place with lots of water fun. Insects trouble are not as bad as I though and I LOVE THE SUPER SOFT BED AND PILLOWS. So easier to sleep in! Just plonk onto the bed and less than one minute later you are in la la land. How awesome is that for a insomniac patient?

Now waiting for Lily to process the photos so I can blog about it in detail. Hope I still remember most of it by then! Stay tuned~

The Jitters Are Gone (1 Day To Tioman)

As the title states, the jitters are all gone. Replaced by what I supposed is regret ("Why oh why did I sign up for this in the 1st place?) and sian-ness (then I started thinking of how I can get out of this).

I'm so glad that I keep a diary of the pre-travel emotions that I am experiencing. Looking back, its pretty interesting! So many ups and downs. The mood swings really makes me wonder if I am getting a bit crazy. Then again I heard somewhere that everyone is a bit crazy in one way or another. So I guess I'm still doing fine. Right?

Maybe I can do one for post-travel and then let's do a comparison. Too bad I can't do the same for the during-travel. The fees for internet access is not really worth it. And although it usually goes very smoothly once I started hitting the keyboards, it takes a relatively long time for me to really get started.

So worried that something might go wrong tomorrow, the main concern being that whether Lily will appeared late. Think its gonna be another sleepless night, tonight.

Pre Travel Anxiety Syndrome (2 days to Tioman)

Is there such thing as Pre Travel Anxiety Syndrome? I studied Psychology for a short while so you are thinking I should know but I don't. Not at all. The module doesn't go that in depth. Its a Mass Comm course after all.

Did a search regarding it on Google and to my amazement there is REALLY SUCH THINGS!!!

Well not exactly Pre Travel Anxiety Syndrome (PTAS for short. Getting real tired of copying and pasting that long chain of medical terms that does not exist), but travel panic attacks.

The wonder of mankind. Oh, and you too, Mother Nature.

Is that I am feeling right now? Not exactly as I am not gonna change routes or anything and I ain't the least bit scared about accidents happening. I am a firm believer of 'what should come will come eventually' afterall. And I often boast about myself being a sadist for wanting to go where the danger is at. And then come back and bragged about how I am still alive and nothing bad happened to me during the trip. Call me crazy but a nicer way to put it is - 'adventurous'. Oh maybe cause I trusted my instinct for this kinda things. It's been in a coma state so far so I reckoned nothing bad is gonna happen. And so far it has served me well.

What I AM FEELING is mostly a mixture of whether the huge racksack of stuff I packed is enough for the trip as well as an excitement kind of jitters overwhelming me. Anticipation is the word. Can't really wait for the trip to really happen even though its only about two days to the trip. TWO DAYS SEEM SO FUCKING LONG.....

Maybe I should unpack my 'racksack' and repack it again. This time putting whatever that it ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY inside. Nothing more.

Happy Days

Ahhh~ the power of best friends. They always seem to know how to make you happy. Effortlessly.

Lily mentioned something about Korea trip next year. Not sure if thats gonna happen but if it is - Cool!

Her future sista-in-law is coming along too. Might be. That is one bad factor. Not that good with strangers. But gonna try real hard. Love making friends even though that doesn't work for me 100%.

Something about a India wedding too in October this year too. Have to see schedules and stuff. So cool for Lily to ask me along! I wonder if her bf is gg too. Might not be going if that's the case. Don't really talk well around guys. Moreover I behave uncomfortably around couples. You may call it 'lack of experience' or whatever.

Now for the best news of the day. The elder one that I'm tutoring got full marks for her test! Whoa~ This nearly makes me wanna continue tutoring for the rest of my life. But I did said almost. Teaching is not really my thing. I am the heck care sort and its a good thing for me the elder sister is hardworking and really striving for the best. On her own effort. Can't do anything for those that doesn't put in motivation though.

Anyway, once again, congratulations Ira! Keep it up!

And also...I'm good! I'm good! I'm good! *doing that pumping my hands in rounds thingy*


Its back again.

I guess its quite normal to get insomnia everytime you feel stressed or mentally excited. But...

Two weeks in advance!

Must be REAL EXCITED if you asked me.

The usual stuff doesn't work and I went a bit outta my way to drink cough medicine. Its not drug abuse if you really must know. Its a try to see if it works and one time thingy. Anyway it doesn't work so I didn't drink it again. The taste isn't that fantastic anyway.

So now I'm here blogging, surfing the web and playing games. At the same time. Really got so used to having to multi-task that I felt uneasy if I don't do it. Guess that might contribute to why I get insomnia every so often - my brain still wanna multi-task in sleep mode. Seriously can't you go to REM stage 1st? We can talk about multi-tasking like...10am in the morning!

This is so screwed up. If I continue like this, all I am gonna do at Tioman is to catch up on my REM rebounds.

Hate you brain. You are a lousy brain for not being able to function properly.

CozyCot Ninki-O many things from here I wanna buy! Gotta get a hold of myself...

Monday, April 12, 2010


Its like a bit more than one week to my Tioman trip and I gotta say...I CAN'T WAIT!

Well...partly bcoz I'm like so free at home so I'm like getting real bored and stuff.

Ultimate aim for the trip: Takes lotsa nice nice pictures so that I can make my friends jealous.

Side but very important and die die must do aim: Have at least one of those gigantic, totally not guilt-free, fattening Ramly burgers on paya beach.

Photo taken from my favorite nice haunts w/o her permission. Sorry~

Maybe I should pack my bag already. A week and two days doesn't really seems like really long.

Frankly I don't really know what to expect for the trip except lotsa sandy white beaches and clear blue/green water. Gee~ I wonder if 300RM is enuff for everything...I'm planning snorkeling as well (if my *ahem2 didn't arrive coincidentally). I'm gonna have some fun!

I'm really having insomnia these days. And no..its not bcoz of the 'overwhelming expectations' for the Tioman trip. The 'overwhelming-ness' only starts today, like just now. But the insomnia has been really haunting me for days. Lack of exercise maybe? I really gotta try making myself really tired before I sleep these days. Don't wanna hop onto the Tioman island and 'impress' the tourists and locals with my magnificent panda eyes.

Btw I just changed my desktop wallpaper to reflect my current mood:

Then again..I'm thinking this will be a better one:

News Feed - Summary of the 1st quarter of 2010

Thinking its time to update my cobwebs-covered blog. Here goes:

Well one quarter of 2010 had past and so far I hafta say it aint that bad. Wasn't too fantastic either but hey, beggers can't be choosers.

Received news that JT probably wanna start working. Wonderful news! Considering that he hadn't been working or doing anything productive for abt more than 3 years now.

On a side note, I'm worried abt my PEAF results. I have such a huge amount of plagiarism and and I don't think I did too well for my exam either. It all amounts to - dreadful news.I did put in huge amount of effort for my paper but you never know what their marking criteria is. Pray...PRAY HARD!

Mum had been a hurricane on fire let loose lately. I dunno what's she encountered in her workplace but venting her frustration on us isn't wise. I vowed not to do that myself a number of times but I gotta admit I sometimes let my temper goes wild. Gotta change that.

I'm a tutor now! Can you believed that? Although its for Lily's cousins and the pay is really peanuts considering I have to teach two kids of different levels - one P6 and another S4NT. I'm taking it as a past-time and am gaining experience in the meantime. I don't like it cause I have to talk so much and most of the time I have a feeling that they don't understand me. But if they don't ask - their loss. I'm not going to be responsible for every teeny weeny thing. I'm tired enough.

That's all for the update! Dunno when's the next one's gonna be but hopefully it'll be soon. Stay tuned!

All for...Passport

Still can't believe it!

I've gotten back my own passport!

Now its laying there safety in my drawer! For the past 2 - 3 days!

It's like a dream!

The feeling is wonderful. Having a hold of ur things. Feels like I'm the only one in control.

In actual fact...not really. Still gotta report to my mum if I'm getting outta the country and stuff. But still, its mine now!

Feel like rocking this song!

No. 1 - Mar 04 Self Intro

What a scare yesterday. Can't find the girl - Dayana and lots of drama follows.

My first tuition is DOOMED to be a 'success'.

Heck care la, I put in whatever effort I can. The rest is seriously up to them.

Lily goes ard spreading that I'm top in N'level, now I gotta prove it. Ma fan~

The elder one also come (both 美人, jap) and asked me abt enlargement (under transformation). I anyway how teach and I think its the wrong method. Nvm, this fri I check with her again. If she's coming la. Maybe she lost faith in me? I also dunno.

Its a nice feeling overall. I think I like teaching. Provided they understand.


我還天天對你生氣 板著臉
時鐘才轉幾圈 有了轉變

我們之間 舒服得像星期天

是命運緊緊把我們 綁在一起
越吵越甜蜜 越吵越愛你 越不分離
生活的難題 考驗著愛情
才顯得我們的努力 多麼值得被珍惜
從今就緊緊的和你 綁在一起
不管壞天氣 不管壞心情 都不分離
麵包的滋味 有多香多甜
有你分享 有你分享 才真的完美

That's the prob living in here. No privacy at all. Anyhow open my door w/o knocking whatsoever.

No matter what, if US I can't survive, I will try Europe. Anyway except this place.
Exam is over and I hafta say I am ashamed. I did not do too well. Not much of a surprise there considering how much I am considering and that I am still exploring an effective study method.

I figured that for those that comes with diagram, best to study it with diagram la. And...not to act clever, remember too much extra info for what?!!! Its not required lor.

Haiz...and to think I almost pride myself on the clever brain...

Brain! U should be very ashamed!

Next thing on the agenda, I signed a tour package w/o my mum's approval. The tour package will NEVER HAPPEN with her approval which is why I go ahead with the purchase, which is super cheap as hell at $139-$10 (discount per pax at NATAS 5*s). Me and Lily is heading on 21 April. Well something to look forward to but...let's see how it works out. Cause passport is still held as hostage.

That's all for today. Ciao~

Chg of plans. I think I'm not the type with good brain, but will be very useful if I found the correct studying method. And the method is CLEARLY NOT memorizing.

At least not the whole chunk.

So I'm gonna juz rmb keywords here and there. Like short forms or sth.

The rest I'm gonna just read.

Let you know how it work out.

Woah...its been long since I came back here.

I dunno what's wrong with me but the big day is tomorrow and I can remember nothing! No concentration whatsoever. Mind is drifting to Lala land. I figure I might need a vent to let out whatever that's inside me thus this blog entry.

I better get my mood back if not I will really die hard. And I am not talking about the movie nor the video game.

I mean it.
