Read The Star newspaper today. With a dead body resembling William Yau (not confirmed by DNA yet but most probably it's him) making the headline news to Nurin Jazlin, The Star newspaper was made up of many news about missing children. In fact, no political news at all today for the first 16 pages. Too often, we take things for granted. That's human nature. So everyday, I try to make it a habit end my day with a prayer of thanksgiving. I thank God for keeping my house safe. Everyone in the house safe and thank God for good health.


Yesterday was Mummy's birthday we celebrated the day before cause it was a holiday. 

:D Shucks, I semakin chubbeh and fats by the day. D: 
Thank God I can hide behind. HEH. Thank God for mummy. The best mum I could ever have. Even my friends agree. :) I love this family of mine though I feel like I could die sometimes due to the high level of BP. But well, that's what families are for. Test your patience and make you a better person.




Pumped up Weeks

Me kicks that I bought from Bangkok

Third week of the semester already. Like I said previously in my post about uni and MQA, I have to take 3 MQA subjects again (to save money) and to fulfill the 9 credit hours I lack from my program. This week would be the first week where I will attend Moral class and BM class for the whole semester until May :( Which means I have class even during my semester break. :( It's also the first time in college that I would be taking 6 subjects per semester. Maximum I've taken was 5, back in foundation. So for the past 2 semesters in degree, it has been quite 'relaxing'. So, I guess no more procrastination for this semester. 
Meanwhile, rumour has it that for Marcomm class, my friend and I the only ones who got A- for the subject. No one got A. Heh. Which means that my friend and I are the "top scorers" for the subject. Weee. Ermahgerd so happy k, dah lama never 'achievement unlock' already. Truth to be told, I wouldn'…

HAHAHA. This has got to be the video of the week. Too hillarious! :DDD

Learning Photoshop!

Image
I'm taking Intro to Design this semester...and it's quite fun. LOL. I'm learning how to use photoshop..and it's really quite fun during tutorial class. I was quite reluctant to take up this subject cause I was lazy to travel from Wisma to main block and I thought it wasn't a core subject. But little did I know the university made a mistake and it is actually a pre-requisite for a subject that I have to take in year 2 -________________-. Thank God my friend told me.

Anyway, I'm required to start a design blog journal at another url (here). So if you would like to stay with me about my journey in learning how to use photoshop, hop on to that website :D



On the other hand, here's what I did so far. LOL..
I'm excited. I wanna simply chop people's face. Heh.


The Impossible

Image
Yesterday, Aki asked me if I was free and if I wanted to watch 'The Impossible'. I went. I knew Naomi Watts was nominated for her performance in this movie in the Oscars and know that 'The Impossible' is based on the story of a Spanish family surviving during the 2004 tsunami - a true story. I don't usually watch disaster movies and this is my second about tsunami, the first was Tidal Wave (Haeundae) the Korean film. This film is an English-language Spanish film so the characters names were changed a bit.

The acting by the lead casts (and even supporting roles) were soooo good! I mean, I don't feel anything was dramatised and I felt like I could picture it happening to victims back in 2004. There are so many memorable scenes in the movie and the scripting's pretty good too.

I LOVE Naomi Watts' performance as Maria Bennett,  both as mother and wife. She was really convincing. Pain was written all over her face. Tom Holland as Lucas also rose up to the o…

#LISTEN Issue

If you're a Malaysian, you should know by now about this video - Forum Suara Mahasiswa (Seiringkah Mahasiswa Berpolitik) that took place in University Utara Malaysia - that had gone viral since Monday night. On Monday night, I saw about 5-6 of my friends sharing this video at about the same time. I knew it then that this video is gonna spread like crazy. True enough. When I woke up the next day, I saw more than 30 friends sharing the video on Facebook. Usually, I don't bother watching videos that people share because most of the time it's either stupid or meaningless (you know, like Gangnam Style?). I knew I had to see the video when people started sharing the video with captions. Indeed, the video is very 'entertaining'.

Oh wait, if you didn't know which video I was talking about. It's this video here. Do spend a little of your time listening to its content if you have not.


To be frank, I'm not at all surprised the treatment that Ms. Bawani had gotten …

Video of the Week: Dream Impossible Child

I can't decide what's my favourite video that I watched this week.


Beautiful rendition of I Dream a Dream by Michael and Justin! 



My favourite violinist, Lindsey collaborated with ThePianoGuys! 


And who would have thought, Sam would cover a Swedish House Mafia song? Woohoo.

Happy Belated Birthday

Had a simple makan and yumcha with a few friends yesterday to celebrate Hoong Fong's birthday. Lazy to edit photos and upload as I'm using my lappy at the moment and everything's in my desktop computer :1 But I think Aki's gonna blog about it soon :D
Dreading to start on my assignment because the issue about MQA is not settled yet. Looks like I got no choice but to retake Malaysian Studies, Moral Studies AND MALAY. I'm so.. speechless. Sigh. Well, can't do credit transfer because the MPW I did in foundation was in a different level. And I have to take MPW cause it's cheaper and I have to fulfil the missing 9 credit hours (cause my program only have 111 credit hours). Let's just say this program is not good enough and MQA decided that we should take 3 more subjects to cover the 9 credit hours. -________-
The idea of studying BM again, in university is... a waste of time. It's cause I'll be learning whatever I've been learning for 11 years in…

Uni, MQA, and Craps

Words, cannot express how I am feeling right now.

Last semester's final exam results were released a few hours ago. Disappointed with my Public Relations marks but it was expected. Now, who would have thought that I scored an A for Introduction to Film? :D I remembered that I was writing all I could remember in the simplest form during exam. I didn't try to BS or write in long paragraphs. I just did my best. And when lecturer came over he saw my paper and he said, "That's all?" I said yes. He said it was too short. o____o You don't know how bad I felt that time. But I guess even with the little I wrote, I had the content. So that gives, don't give BS in exams.

Meanwhile, my friends and I received a very bad news today.

When I began my first semester in Bachelor of Communication (Hons) program in May 2012 with the university that I am currently studying in, there was this thing called "Employability Enhancement Subject (x2)" (EES) on the course fee …

Video of the Week: Fireworks in Reverse (NYE 2012 Melbourne)

Super cool stuff : ) 

If only we can reverse time. So many regrets and mistakes.. wish I have not said those hurtful things. D: I did not mean it, I didn't even feel that it was hurtful words or anything cause the things I said don't mean as an insult. I guess I have a bad image of being sarcastic..but sometimes I know overreact and then people take offense. I feel bad. Urgh.



Sales Promoters

Today my mum and I went to Pavilion and pay a visit to a retail chain in electronics and home stuffs like furniture etc and quite impulsively bought a new DVD player, cost about RM100++. Mum was looking around to buy my dad a new shaver but I wandered around and went to the DVD player section. Our previous DVD player has served us faithfully (and it was actually free - mum won from lucky draw many years ago) and it's time to say goodbye cause there's some problem with playing certain DVDs. So, we were looking at a few DVD players and no comparing which to buy - Philips and Panasonic. Then, someone working there came over and offered us assistance. So we were asking - what's the difference between these two players?

Him: Which one?
Mum: These two *pointing* 
Him: *reading the flyers attached to the two DVD players*

After awhile, there wasn't any response from the guy and my mum and I berbisik-bisik about the two models and finally just decided to get the Philips one. Clear…

Things To Do in Bangkok: Shopping

Image
If there was only ONE thing you could do in Bangkok, that would be shopping. The main purpose we went to Bangkok wasn't to eat or for sightseeing, it was to shop. And we managed to fulfill it to 'a certain extent' because we felt like we could buy for if we were given the time. :P

'Photo Me Please'. Smart owner! I always love stores that allow people to take photographs. : ) And also by doing so, the chances of their brand/store to be known would be higher cause people can post it on their Instagram, Facebook etc. 

MBK Centre also known as Mahboonkrong is like Malaysia's Plaza Low Yat Shopping Centre. About 5-10 minutes walk from Holiday Inn Express, we made our way to MBK a few times because it was so near. There are a lot of shops around, including a department store and there's a food court too. At level 4, you can find electronics stuff but we didn't stay long at MBK so we didn't manage to see everything the 8-storey high shopping centre.

Eve of 2013

Happy New Year! It's the second day of 2013. Feeling nothing spectacular about it cause I don't have any resolutions.. Feel like making one or two to see if I can accomplish them. D:
Celebrated New Year's Eve with Hazel HF members, almost full attendance this time : )

Boys being boys. LOL


"Caviar of popcorns" 


Indeed. Garrett's popcorns. Too sweet for me : ) 


A. Cheryl and my mum busy in the kitchen.








My drink for the night. Sparkling juice! :P


Peeps playing Risk Legacy while waiting for 12am to come.


Beautiful strawberry cheesecake made by A. Sally.
About 11pm, started watching 3 Idiots. It was random, and knowing the movie was 3 hours, we still proceeded with watching the movie. 15 minutes before 12, we quickly went up to countdown. Wanted to view the "most amazing fireworks in Malaysia" but the the skyscrapers blocked the fireworks burnt at KLCC. :/ 
But we managed to watch Genting's fireworks from our spot (seriously, no joke!) and it was better th…
