Jingle Bell Rocks the Party! Not Santa Claus!!

Whatever the title means. Hmm. My uni friends decided to change their minds and came to Penang Island today instead. But since I already promised OCY, so I couldn’t join them. Sorry people!! Oh well, here are some of the events that happened at Sunnyville that night :

::: Lots of cute and hot girls, be it Caucasians or Asians.

::: Dutch, German, Finnish, American dudes…*speechless*

::: We practically brought the house down without having to be in a club. Nah, just kidding. Haha. It was more decent than I thought it would be.

::: Vodka + rum = Minty. Not exactly but still, it felt like your throat is burning after drinking it.

::: The most adorable girl award goes to Katzu San (I hope I got her name right), the cute Japanese girl we met that night.

::: The hottest guy award goes to…I shall keep it that way. Haha. Wouldn’t want them to find out whom just in case if they happen to read my blog then I’m doomed!!

::: Smokes, cigarettes, liquor. Not really my kind of thing.

::: Santa in an undersized shirt with his belly and boxer shown and a strawberry image behind it. Think about it. And when he was drunk, OMG.

::: Gift exchange! I got a pack of chopsticks, small notebook and a book holder from Robert, the Dutch. Though they’re all made in Penang, but it’s alright lah. I bet they didn’t expect so many Malaysians to be there anyway. Hehe.

::: Food : Plenty of varieties. The starters filled the whole table and silly us for thinking that that was it. I didn’t even try the main course!! Mashed potatoes from Lauri, perhaps? Hahaha.

::: Photos : None taken by yours truly. *frowns*

I was accompanied by high school mates : OCY, Eve, KQ, KR and HF! It was a new experience for me, being under the same roof with a whole bunch of Caucasians and not being intimidated by them! Hahaha. Though having to sustain a conversation especially with …. was well, a little torturing but haha, nice experience.


How was your Christmas people??
OMG I feel like a grandmother compared to what KQ has written about the party. Heehehe.

HO HO HO!

Ahh. Now I know what has been bugging me lately. Decision making.
To go with my heart or let my mind lead the way?
In the end, I chose to go with my heart.

I've been trying to make up my mind on whether or not to spend the holiday with my university friends or join my good ol' friends in a party with a bunch of foreign exchange students.
I know, I know, most of you will say it'd be nice to make new friends and what's more, I'll be joining my old friends.
But, I bet most of you know how 'well' my socializing skills are, no?
I'll tend to be superbly quiet when I'm around newly known people.
Hmm...probably it has something to do with self-esteem. Okay fine, TOTALLY.

And so...the almighty CL Teh has made a wonderful decision.
:::Christmas Eve will be spent with my old high school friends, not to mention with the hope of meeting cute German guys..hee..and thanks to my cousin, Nicholas Saw, it's possible now!!

AND

:::Christmas Day will be booked for my university girl friends!!

Ain't I just so brilliant? HAHAHA.
So I guess my holidays won't be that boring anymore!! *grins*

However, good things must always come to an end. WHY??
After Christmas Day, I'll most probably be hibernating at home again unless miracle happens once again.
The dumbo*&^%^$ mechanics just can't seem to keep up to their words and I'll be car-less for the weekend.

I have so many things planned out for my weekend holiday and thanks to them, none will come true.

And guess what my first Christmas present of the year would be??
It's gonna be the FIRST and the BEST!!!
Need some hints perhaps?
It is a gadget and its name starts with an I and it has a D letter in it.
4 letter word. Any more letter will be rather redundant because it'll easily reveal what it is.
I shall reveal it when the time comes (when I finally get to feel it).
Am so excited right now!! *grinsgrinsgrins*

Here are some pics for you to enjoy while I'm away during the holidays!!

My first Christmas tree!!

Before the lights are lit.

AND

****A WONDERFUL YEAR OF 2009****


CHEERS!

Reflections

At this time of the year, most people will usually reflect on all the things that had happened to them throughout the year, regardless of the good or the bad ones.
Same goes to me, for the past weeks, staying at home gave a me a great chance to do that.

I thought about my family, him, friends and my future.
I thought about my family, the reason I'm here and what would I be without them.
I thought about him, the source of my happiness.
I thought about my friends, the people who shower me with great love when I needed it.
I thought about my new semester, another step closer towards achieving my goal.
I thought about my final exam results and it made me smile.

2008 has been somewhat meaningful to me as I've began to explore deeper into the relationship between human beings and how they can affect our lives.
However, I still feel missing. Somehow there's an empty space in my heart and I have the urge of filling it.

Am I being greedy?
Something just doesn't feel right in me. I can't seem to be excited even when festive seasons are around the corner.
Maybe these 6 clones can do the trick?

First Day In The New Sem

Three cheers to those who made it to the new sem!! Hip hip......bleh.
Today's inspirational quote from an experienced lecturer, "I'm a well-planned person".
Gawd. Never actually knew a lecturer would praise himself that way.
Nonetheless, he's well respected by the students.

Sigh. I need to gain back my composure before actually writing a proper blog entry.
Right now, as I'm doing this, I'm thinking of someone far far away....in French Alps. ARGGHH!! I wana go there....but nvm, there's always a better time to do that.
Gotta rush for my lab period now! (",)

It Wasn't That Bad After All


Luckily, God has a better plan for me after all that has happened to me during the past weeks. Now that my face has gotten better, I realized good things are on their way to me!! (Just in case if you’re wondering what happened to my face, stop wondering.) Mei Chen text me that final results are out today. I had no idea how I should feel. I was terrified when Hui Juan and Fergie asked for my results. I haven’t checked yet at that time and they sounded so happy. Good for them, I thought to myself. I messaged Kok to check my results for me and he kept me waiting for more than 2 hours!! I was in agony thinking of my results and finally he called but not with the results. Sighs sighs sighs. And I realized I gave him the wrong web address. Oops. Hehe. Sorry Babe. I then called Eve immediately to get the correct web and I practically laughed throughout the phone conversation with Babe after knowing my results. And from that moment onwards, I think I started to believe in miracles. HAHAHAHA. Seriously lar. Nevertheless, I'm proud of myself. HAHAHA. Anyways, after 2 weeks of pain and tears, I’m finally prepared to get out from the house and be my old self again. This time, with a new skin (FYI, I did not undergo plastic surgery) not only for myself, but for my car as well!! There’ll be a high school reunion tomorrow night. Hopefully OCY can make it then we can all meet up again!!! Nites people.

Unconditional Love


Ahh. As though the day has not been sad enough for me and now MixFM has to play Avril’s “When You’re Gone”. I decided to write this entry right after I finished reading “Dear John” by Nicholas Sparks. (WARNING: Nicholas Spark’s fans who haven’t read this one, please do not continue reading my entry J)It’s been quite a while since I read good books like this one. Initially, it took me quite a while to get hooked to this book not only because I’m not an avid reader but the beginning was pretty expected. Lovey-dovey couple story, how they met and fell in love. Everything sounds typical in the beginning. It wasn’t until 2 days ago that I decided to grab the book and continued where I stopped. As the story goes on, I realized I could somehow relate the story and the characters to my own life. It wasn’t entirely similar but I guess I could feel how Savannah, the girl in the book felt, having to wait for a guy who can’t be beside you most of the time. However, their case was much worse than mine considering that the couple can only meet 2 weeks in a year whereas I could see Babe 3 months in a year. Sounds pretty ok but after reading the book..gosh. My heart shattered into pieces. It’s so unfair how two people who are so much in love with each other but in the end they couldn’t be together. The story revolves around a guy, John Tyree who enrolled in the army after finished schooling and during one of his breaks, he met and fell in love with Savannah, a grad student and volunteer in some house building for the poor or something. So, it went about on how they eventually fell in love with each other and that John’s time was up and had to fly back to Germany to resume his service. She was willing to wait, at first as he still comes back in June, but for 2 weeks leave only as usual. It wasn’t easy for a girl who just fell in love with someone and to expect her to wait for someone whose chance of surviving isn’t certain, was definitely a tough one. However, 9/11 occurred and as a devoted soldier, he chose to serve the country instead of love. The waiting took its toll on the girl and she somehow felt in love with Tim, her best friend since they were small, who has always been in love with her. The climax of the story happened when John’s father passed away and left him a whole lot of money. While grieving over his dad’s death, John went to find Savannah and found out that she got married to Tim. Heart was crashed as he kept dwelling with his past with Savannah but soon enough, John got to know that Tim has Melanoma and some complications after the treatments and surgeries. Savannah barely made it through the days but they both know they still love each other but it was too late. Savannah is Tim’s wife now and she loves him, but not exactly like the way she felt for John. It was this conversation that made them went on with their own lives as John told Savannah it’d be better if they don’t meet again, because in this way, it can only mean that Tim’s gonna be okay and John will never be with Savannah. Finally decided to take the money his dad left for him and contributed in Tim’s medication and in the end, Tim did not entirely recover but it seems that he has a better chance to fight the challenge now. And the hero and heroine did not live happily ever after. I couldn’t hold back my tears. It was a bit too much for me because I was afraid the same thing would happen to me. Hopefully not the death and the disease but the way their story ended. But all I can deal with now is the present, not the past nor the future.

:)

OMG. It’s almost December already. How time flies. I did something amazing today. At least, it’s amazing to myself. I actually went down to the park nearby my house to jog! Haha. I’m quite a sporty person it’s just that I usually prefer to stay at home rather than to go under the sun despite the fact that I love outdoor activities. Nevertheless, I jogged 2 big rounds alone since Mei Chen could not accompany me. Reason why I decided to jog? Well, all these sitting, doing nothing or barely do a thing make me feel like a super lazy bump and I just feel like I need to do something about it and what’s better than to jog?! Hence, the change in me. Muahaha. I planned to jog once in every two days but Monday is booked for Evelyn. Hmm..what should I do? Should I jog on Sunday evening as well? Decisions decisions. Probably not. Ganti on Tuesday la. Blek. :P

Anyways, I read a magazine on TOFI (Thin on the Outside, Fat on the Inside). I must say, it’s 100% true on me. I’ve been telling my friends how unhealthy I am at campus since I only do 2 types of exercise during the weekdays which is walking. Is talking considered as an exercise? Mouth exercise perhaps? Hehe. Nevermind. So, there was once I told them I wanted to jog around my campus and they were shocked as to why the sudden change. I told them I might look healthy on the…TOFI in short. But they kept saying it was because I wanna fit into the bikini when I go to Langkawi in August. Haha. I must say it was somewhat true but not totally true :P Whatever it is, I need to be more healthy. HEALTHY, HEALTHY HEALTHY! I wouldn’t wanna contract any of the possible diseases I could get when I get older. Have you ever been to a dialysis centre? Try and have a look at those tubes filled with blood all over your hand and you’ll know how I feel (when I look at them, I mean).
So people, TO STAY HEALTHY, GET YOUR ASS OFF THE COUCH (or wherever you’re sitting on) RIGHT NOW! Kick those fat away!

Ivan's Surprise Birthday Celebration

It’s the day and I asked Ivan out for his birthday dinner at Breeze Café, right next to Naza Hotel as recommended by my sister. First thing in the morning after breakfast with mom, I bought a blackberry + chocolate cake for him and passed it to Chenn Yang after lunch time. Since I was around the neighbourhood, I decided to drop by OCY’s house to pass her Gossip Girl and Heroes series. I was virtually rushing like a mad dog and almost freaked out to see the jam near the bridge. Thank God I came back home just in time for the dinner. Little did Ivan know, I already planned everything out and asked my friends to meet us at the café and surprise him with the cake. Hehe. So, Ivan came at about 1745 to pick me up from my house to our destination. I was like texting Chenn Yang all the way and thinking to myself that Ivan’s so gonna suspect something weird must be going on seeing me texting this way. Haha. I was told that my accomplices have reached the place and soon enough, Ivan and I made it to the café as well. As we were about to sit down, I suddenly asked Ivan to switch to another seat so that he will not be able to see them entering through the entrance. I know, I can’t be more pathetic than that but I’ve got no choice! So, I told him to switch place with the reason that he can have a better sea view (which was 95% true, only that it was getting dark ). Haha. Amazingly, he did not even say anything and just sat at where I told him to. At that time, I was thinking, dang, another poorly done plan. It wasn’t part of my plan la anyway. Haha. So after ordering, we started to chat awkwardly to each other and tadaa! They came in with the cake I bought and started singing the birthday song. I was so carried away that I actually forgot to snap pics or take any video at that moment. So, dang again for screwing my initial plan. The pics taken were after the candles were blown and the cake was cut. Oops. Anyways, we had a great dinner accompanied by weird and funny conversations. Next up, we decided to go to Gurney since they haven’t been there before and thought that it’d be a great time to have a visit there. So, we walked around aimlessly while me and the girls were admiring the beautiful yet expensive (assumption made) dresses shown at the display corner. Then I was thinking of getting a book for Babe and we headed to MPH. I guess I saw a few books that suit him at this time. Haha. It was a requested Christmas present anyway. Nah, request + own initiative lar. Anyways, all those walk made our stomachs grumble again and we went to have Lok Lok as our supper! It was my first time to have supper at the Pulau Tikus Market and gosh, I really think Penangites are so blessed! We have like food everywhere, all the time! Though the Lok Lok was rather expensive, but I enjoyed myself there being with my close friends. We headed home after supper and I was glad knowing that the birthday boy did enjoy himself! *smiles*
Ps: I’m available for a month for planning surprises. Anyone wants to hire me? Haha. Okay, it wasn’t a big wow wow surprise but at least it was something, right? Cheers! 
