Rotten luck

Right now, I am an extremely angry woman. I've got nothing but complaints and curses in my mind.

My streak of not-so-good luck began yesterday when I was on my way down to KL central on the ktm. I've been taking the ktm for maybe a hundred over times and yet it was the very first time I had befallen such horrendous luck.

Now, being alone on the train is a sad thing, but with the company of a book it's still bearable. And that was exactly what I did; I read a motivational book by Stephen Covey. As I was quietly reading, a bunch of college students got in at the Subang Jaya station. I presume that they are from Taylors college bcoz they were making loads of ruckus.

Being a good mannered girl*ahem* I seldom eavesdrop ppls' conversation. BUT, when the conversation is interesting, I can't help but to listen. The bunch of students are actually 3 girls n 1 guy, whose name is Max. *yea..I know his name without even opening my mouth*

Max is this guy who jz can't close his mouth, when his friends phone rang to the tune of Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway, he started singing the song -_-''

As if that isn't enough to distract me, his other friend said this,
'Hey Max, why u so 'ham sap'? Dont touch ....'s ass! You should never touch a girls' ass.'

Well, enough said. I think both u and I get the picture.

Anyways, at the very next station after Max boarded the train, the train stopped moving. It was stationary for alomst 10-15 mins without any air-condition. The only source of air we can get is the occasional hissing of the train's engine. And every single time the hissing comes, the girls would tease Max by saying,
'Max, I knew u farted! No wonder it stinks in here!'

Err...even Stephen Covey's advice on patience is useless to me. I was literally a sweating girl as I kept the book in my bag as everyone in the cabin moved all the way to the front of the train to free ourselves from the friggin' train.

When I reached the front I asked the driver, 'Rosak ke?'


Well, that explains all. Our msian ktm is obsolete! I mean like, shouldnt the train have a back-up generator to at least open the side doors when the train breaksdown?

There isnt even an announcement inside the train! We were all sitting like idiots inside a metal box under the hot sun!

The announcement that came next was from the station itself, and it asked everyone heading to KL to move on to the opposite platform to catch the next train! Imagine, everyone inside the train filling up the entire platform! There the amount of ppl in a single train waiting...it was packed!

AS if that isnt bad enough, the next train which came was already 75% occupied!

Yet, the instinct to board the very next train kicked in, and everyone was soon squeezing n pushing. Inside the train, ppl were stacked up next to each other like tinned sardines -_-''

In KL central, I met another problem regarding the Msian public transportation again! This time its the Putra LRT. Since the queue are usually long, I prepared the exact amount of rm1.60 and used the manual ticketing machine. Guess what?

Out of the 6 high-tech looking machines available, only ONE was functioning! The one I used kept vomitting out the coins I slotted in! Pissed off, I had to queue up to get a ticket and the pace was ridiculously slow! There were two ppl inside the counter but only the girl was giving out tickets while the guy was 'busy' counting money!

I was baffled at his stupidity! Can't he see the queue? Cant he see that his colleague is tired? Didn't he even notice that the machines weren't functioning?

Oh well, I guess not. After all he is SO busy counting money and is too friggin' blind to notice anything!

THAT was yesterday, and todays' problem is regarding the telco services!

Being a loyal customer of Hotlink, I expect the services to be better. Today, all my expectations were dashed. (Yup, I am loyal. Everyone's changing to Digi yet i'm still with Hotlink and I always top up my credit on time and lately I've been using mroe than rm60 a month! Which has never happened to me in the past)

Every 15mins before I reach the ktm station nearest to my house, I would call my brothers or parents to pick me up. Yet today, the network was down!

Imagine my horror! I tried calling over n over again! I even took out the sim card to check! BUT nothing worked.

So, I had to walk to the nearest telephone booth to make the call. It was only a few metres away, but I ended up walking more than 400metres, under the blazing hot noon sun, to finally get a phone that is functioning!

I passed mayb 3-4 booths yet ALL of them were dilapitated! Blame it on vandelism, but I think the government should be doing better! Shouldn't they at least come around n replace the spoilt ones every month?

Anyways, after I called my brother from the public phone, I asked him to pick me up from the stall which I decided to have my lunch while waiting for them to come and also for me to cool down after the burning hot long walk.

I called him at 12.15pm and guess what time he arrived?

Wait! He didnt even arrive!!

After around 40 mins of waiting(and also finishing my lunch) I called him again around 1pm and he said he'll come soon. So I went back to the same stall after paying for my meal and had another drink. After waiting for another 30mins or so, he still isnt around!

I was extremely pissed off! The restaurant is less than 15mns from my house yet I had to wait for him for more than an hour!

So, I decided to walk back home, under the hot sun again!

After walking around 200metres or so, he somehow spotted me and picked me up at 1.40pm. Amazing...I was this close to killing him with my bare hands! And when I asked him why did he take so long, he casually said he went back sleeping after my receiving my 1st call!

What the f***! I'm suffering alone while he sleeps like a pig!!

Yup, I am a naturally angry woman; When the conditions around me turn sour, I won't turn sour...I would have already rotted instead!! My patience thins, and my angry grows especially when I'm hungry and when the sun shines TOO bright.

The Pink Squid + Brown-haired girl

I finally got my darn hair coloured! At first the junior-stylist(or the more accurate term is a 3rd month hairstylist student) wanted to colour my hair a rich dark brown to make my hair look 'healthy'.

Yes u read correctly, she said healthy. Which indirectly means my hair is currently in an unacceptable condition; dry and messy and BAD, or in other words it LOOKS n FEEL like those weeds or 'lalang' in our fields.

However, I wanted to colour it brown and since the customer is ALWAYS right, she obliged. Thus, her words came true n my hair ended up looking more lalang-like than ever. Sheesh -_-''

Okay, maybe I exaggerate a little too often. Honestly my hair doesnt look 'that' bad; at least that's what my friends told me. But, the one true fact is that I seriously need to get my hair treated. And from the pic, u can tell my fringe looks weird.
The obvious answer is because I am jz too lazy to style it.

That's why once Chinese New Year is over, I'll definately chop off the whole permed section. Natural hair is by far the best! I can comb it, tie it and most importantly, NOT put so much effort in styling it. Hhahaha XD

After I got my hair coloured, my friends, Ah Li ,Ah Hui and I ended up in RedBox to sing our hearts out! Its been months since my last karaoke session and so after 3 hours of singing I lost half of my voice.*sobs*
And my singing to me is actually:

Singing = Off-pitch screaming + Humming off tune

To make matters worse, I usually sing wrongly bcoz I cant read chinese characters -_-'' *sigh*

Halfway through, Ning n Ben came n joined the fun =) Which there after was followed by dinner at MCD. Hahhaha... Of course, dinner at a fastfood outlet is nothing compared to the scrumptious meal Ning, Ben, Ah Li and I had in Tomy Roma's exactly a week ago in the exact same mall.

^grilled chicken^

^mahi mahi fillet^

^even the drinks look good^

Well, the sad thing is right after I took the pic of my drink, I broke the glass and caused one of the waitress to cut her hand while picking up the pieces. BUT, since I was the birthday girl on that day, I guess all is forgiven. Kekeke^^ but I do feel a bit guilty about it...

One mroe thing, I got this super cute pinky squid from my friends as my birthday present! Hehehe^^


Now, ain't she cute?

Since it's a squid, I'll name her Sotong The Pinky Squid! Sounds like a name of a character in some Disney animation huh? LoL^^

I'm rotting away..

I can't believe the amount of time I spent in front of the darn tv and computer today!

My life - working/studying - friends - family/bf = No life

Every single time I stop working or have a break, the same old thing repeats itself.I'm left all alone at home like an idiot; another meaningless day spent eating chips while having my anime marathon.

For instance, right after I blogged this morning, I couldn't find another thing to do. So, I ended up watching an anime since morning. My bros were out with the car, which practically means I have no means of getting out to get lunch. In the end, after scavanging around the house for food,

my lunch = instant mushroom soup + 2 small pkts of sesame gingko biscuit + 1 pkt of chips + 1 tin of Coke

Although i'm not a diet-freak or anything near it, I think everyone is more than aware of the amount of calories my lunch had. So there I was imagining the calories from each mouthful of chips i ate turning into undesirable fat layers in on my tummy. At that fateful moment, I somehow stumbled upon TV mart which co-incidently was screening some ad on the sauna belt!

As I watched the same darn ad with the same hosts for nearly 5 mins, I lost count on the number of times they guaranteed the belt will help u lose at least 1 inch after 15 mins only. It was so so tempting but...their guarantee sounds..fake @.@

Its always like that, when someone is trying to get my trust, the moment he says these words for the 2nd time in the same conversation, the trust shatters.

Oh well, now after dinner, I'm still stuck in front of the comp, yet again, blogging. Anyways, jz now as I chatted with a friend, we somehow stumbled upon a topic regarding a guys' loo. So he asked me watch this video which I find ridiculous. If anyone has time to kill, they definately have to watch this( btw, I HIGHLY recommend this to girls who wanna find out more about how a guys' loo is) [Click Here]

Anyways, do not worry, this video contains no nudity what-so-ever, after all, I AM an innocent young thing! lol... however be warned that its a little long (around 10mins) so it might take a little time to upload depending on ur connection. So enjoy =)

Yet again it took me so so super-duper long to post something up.

Its not that i'm lazy or anything, its jz that i get too preoccupied by other happenings in my life I jz couldnt find the time; or I jz couldn't care less about finding a time to update. Sheesh..so there's my oh-so-honest confessions on what's been going on.

Anyways, back to reality, 'many' things happened.

1. I'm no longer a stalker.
Why? cause the agency which gave me the job couldnt extend the darn contract. Which is guess was probably due to the fact that part-timers from agencies, like me, are break-lovers, which means we work less than the stipulated time in the contract. Oh well, at least during my time there I met loads of interesting ppl^^

2. I'm jobless (on weekdays) again.
On the last day of my job, the thought of me being jobless again didnt realy cross my mind. The only thing that was running was proabably the estacy of knowning I neednt go back n make calls the next day. And also the fact that my frens and I were madly snapping pictures in every single place which we think would look nice on print-_-'' and one of those places include the lift. Luckily this was ended by out stern newly appointted supervisor.

3.I'm NO longer a teen!!
Yup, I'm officially no longer a 19 year old! Sheesh..makes me feel sad yet happy at the same time.
Sad because I'm no longer a teenager. At least when i was nineTEEN, i still had the word 'teen' in my age. But now? I only see the big TWO.
However, I am happy too. At least when ppl guess my age as 20++ now, it wouldn't hurt my self esteem that much anymore because its partly true! Hahaha^^

4. Did I mention that I permed my hair?
I paid money to make my hair look like it got burnt; at least that's what one of my fren said to me-_-'' Anyways, most of the comment arent really nice. Not a single one told me this line, "It looks GREAT!" To make matters worse they say my previous hairdo is much better. Sheesh...So, I had to console myself that its all because my hair isnt coloured and that a permed hair must always go with colour if not i'll look plain n ugly. And jz because of that thought, I have had this urge to colour my hair more than anything. (but of course the price has to be within my budget, which unfortunately I dare not mention in my blog for fears that ppl might laugh their guts out after knowning my absurdly low budget...)

* I had wanted to post up pics of my permed hair together with pics which i took with my colleagues in PJ but I'm jz to lazy to do so. HahahaXD

I'm a 'stalker'

Ever since I quit Osim, I was left feeling empty and useless on weekdays. Thankfully that didnt last long because on the very 3rd day of my "unemployment", I received a call asking me whether I was free for a job on weekdays! I was absolutely excited about it and didn't give much thought about the pay. Directly after the call, I went all the way to K.L to sign my contract.

On the very next day, I was already on my 1st day of work!
Guess what my current job is?
Its something like a stalker's job.

But instead of following ppl around, I call ppl and bug them to complete a survey which takes up to 1 hour!! And because of that, I've got hung up a zillion times!*LoL*

And so, I'm currently working EVERY single day of the week. However, it's definately much better than the times when I was with Osim. Because at least I get to meet more friends, and somehow life always blessed me with whacky and 'sampat' friends who make my working life entertaining.

Imagine the extent of our 'whackiness' when we sang the soundtrack of Fast n Furious by Teriyaki Boyz out loud, in the middle of a room, while nodding our heads like idiots. ^^

Not only that, I've met a few 'perverted' friends, whose mind is either as blue as the bluest blue or as yellow as the dahl curry we get from mamak stalls. Yup, that's how polluted their minds can get -_-''
One of them even looks like the guy with the mask in Vendetta! He looks even more like that mask when he shows his perverted face!! Imagine those pale white face with slits for eyes, and an extremely wicked smile, plastered on a skinny guy. Funny aint it?

Anyways, I hope that my bf has luck like mine in making new frens. I really hope that he's doing fine. Miss him lots.

Bye bye osim..

Every beginning has an end, and last Friday was my last day with Osim.

I had already came up with that decision since I was informed about the "permanency" job under Nestle as a promoter or trialing specialist.

Money factor.
What other reasons can there be, right? >.<

Wait, there are other reasons too;
I don't have enough time for myself.
eg. No time to watch anime
no time to blog.
no time to play o2jam.
no time to laze around the house.
no time to even go online at home.

Yup, I tend to find reasons to make myself look like the victim. And I have been convincing myself that the main reason for my resignation is ALL about the long working hours. NOT about the money, talk about self-denial -_-"

Anyways, my initial plans of getting a 5-day office job seems to have gone down the drain. Mainly cause I can't seem to get my butt moving; its stuck either on a couch or on the bed.

Looks like all the u-zapping i did in the previous month means nothing. And soon, i'll b the one buying a u-zap. That is if I manage to get the money to buy one.

IMU.. take 2

I finally got my acceptance letter from IMU!
It happened a couple of days back when I was at work; away from home.
Out of the blue, a friend called me and asked me whether I received the acceptance letter.
I was like, "What accpetance letter?"

The one from IMU.

"Huh? I havent got it worr.."

U havent received it? IMU is asking us to pay up RM16k by end of this month!

"HUH? How come?"

I don't know..U havent got the letter right?


Nvm then, i'll ask the others. Bye.

Actually, the conversation was much longer than this. But that jz about sums it up. Haha^^
After the call, I was wondering whether I got the letter.

I consoled myself saying that I did well during the interview so there's no way I screwed up, right?

Then a text message came in from another friend, saying,
" hey, i got the acceptance letter already! Have u got urs?"

Bummer! Where's my letter? How come my parents didnt call me?
And that's about the ONLY two questions I had in mind. After awhile, I forgotten about the whole IMU thingy till I went home.

From the very moment my mum came and pick me up, she was already blabbing non-stop about the IMU letter and that I should send it in real soon.
Till today, the nagging continues.

Anyways, what I have learnt about the proper method of solving the IMU acceptance letter is as follows:

1. Get an AFFIDAVIT from JPA. How?
--> call them and tell them u need an affidavit. If the JPA number can't the accessed u can try to numbers in this page[JPA Contact Numbers]

2. Send in the affidavit and the other forms back to IMU, along with a payment of RM690 to IMU.

3. Finish. LOL.

Sounds simple, but in reality getting the affidavit is a real pain in the a$$.
I called in, and the lady asked me to send in a copy of my acceptance letter by IMU and then they'll send back the affidavit to me.

Ya..that's what she told me to do. (either that or misunderstood what she meant)
Hopefully everything will turn out fine. If not....
My mum's hair might jz turn white overnight! LOL^^

Tuesday, October 10, 2006


It feels like a long long time since I had the time to blog. I'm practically held up with my job most of the time; getting one off-day per week is jz pathetic.

And my off days are ALL spent at home; cleaning my house ie sweeping and mopping the floor, and let's not forget that I wash the loo. -_-" After all that 'hard' work, I'll be catching up with a few episodes of anime which I missed out through the week.

Thankfully this week I got 2 days off!! Hehe^^
So.. I finally opened an EPF account!! (its an account with no money though..)

Anyways, I realised that since I worked in osim, I seldom had time for myself. I couldnt find time to go out with my friends for a drink or two. I cant watch anime late at night cause I need 8 hours of sleep. I'm practically like a zombie whose daily routine is

Sleep --> Eat --> Work --> Sleep

I wish I could get a better life than that. But then, reality bites.
If I do not work, my life wouldn't be much different.

Sleep --> Eat --> Watch anime --> Sleep

AND, that's exactly what I do during my off days!
On yesterday itself, I finished an entire anime series! All 24 episodes of it!! In A DAY! Not to mention I watched another 3 episodes of another anime too!

That's not all! Today I watched another series and wanted to finish the whole thing!! BUT..the dvd palyer has reached its limit. The video started to lag and so...I had to give up on it.

Well, while watching the anime, many issues sparked in my mind. For example, life.

I think about 'life' every now and then. I think about why we humans have thoughts; Thoughts that are only heard by ourselves and no one else.
Why do we have it?
What is the purpose of life itself?
Are there ppl out there who share the same thoughts as ourselves?

I think of the future which we still cannot determine jz yet.
What will become of us 10 years from now?
Will the place we live in be the same?
Will the ppl we now know remain the same?
And more importantly,
will we ourselves change?
How will our life be?
How will we pass away?
Will there be a next life?

As I have these thoughts in my head,
I wonder what do other ppl in this world have in their minds?

As I write this words,
my bros are studying for their exams,
my parents are reading the newspapers,
my bf is most likely busy in class,
my colleague is still serving customers,
my neighbours are watching some tv series,
someone out there might be travelling,
someone might be dying,
someone might be giving birth,
someone might be undergoing a life-saving operation,
someone somewhere in this world might be killing herself.

And by the time I finish writing this, hopefully someone will read it and share my thoughts at this moment. Which by then I might be watching anime again..lol

Although I have decided to let life take its course, but will always be times when my mind wonder into such thoughts.

Working is not easy..

It's now officially my 1st week of work!!!
Guess what?
I finally broke my record of ZERO sales for 5 days!!!
With the help of my senior colleague in the closing part, I sold an i-Squeez on Sun!!
And yesterday I sold a Noro Comfy!!

Yippie!! I finally made sales^^
BUT, both sales do not have commission! *sobs*

Actually I had wanted to quit my job yesterday, because on Sunday the area supervisor came to my outlet and said I was 'playing' with the ppl in the next store. Which unfortunately is true -_-''

So, when it was 10.30pm, he refused to let me go back, and asked me to serve another customer and make another sales...

I was like what?? o.0
But since he is the 'big' guy I obeyed. However, as I waited outside for customers, it dawned on me that I am NOT paid for overtime!

So, when my mum called me (she usually comes on time to pick me up) I went back and said I had to leave. And he said ok, which was when he told me he was not so impressed with what he saw earlier this evening, ie the incident where I chatted awhile with the lady next door.

There and then, I felt choked and soon I was crying.

Ya, I cried in front of him and my senior. How embarassing..And I dont even know WHY I cried.

Anyways, I must hv gone cuckoo that moment, coz as I was choked with my own tears, I asked him, ' Are we paid OT?'


'So, i think u do not hv the right to ask me to stay back for OT.'

'I think u misunderstood. I was jz discussing with ur senior that you all can come in for work later if u all opened the shop till 11pm. Bla, bla..'

By then I had lost all sense as one of my contact lens fell off.

'i think u should go back and rest..'

And off I went.

Now that I think of it, the whole thing was purely my fault; bcoz I cried. All bcoz of such a small matter-_-''

Needless to say, that incident ended up a laughing stock among my senior and his pals from the shop next door..Haih..

I think I'm gonna stay around in Osim a little longer and see how the outcome is. If I ever cry again bcoz of the job, I'll seriously quit!
(or maybe not =P)

Happy U-Zapping

Yet again, it took me so long to blog.
Anyways, many things happened since then.

1. My bf spent a week with me before flying off to czech republic.
So now I'm left alone...(i'm trying so sound pityful here to gain some attention..kekeke)
Actually its not as bad as I imagined it would be.


Basically its bcoz send sms to him only costs me RM0.20 which is like so-so cheap, considering that an sms from a 012 to a 016 number costs rm0.15!!!
Then a friend of mine told me that calls to czech costs quite cheap too. Being the innocent me, I called to my bf and chatted for only a 1min and 21 secs. Guess how much that cost?


Gyaahh!!! So So expensive! That itself is like 18 sms!!! Oh well, at least now I know that overseas call from a cellphone is a BIG no-no.

2. I am currently working at Osim, Tesco.
On the very next day of my bf's departure, I started my 1st day of my 3rd job (since my A-levels that is)
The job is rather simple, the main responsiblity is :
Sell baby, SELL!!!

Yup, sales.

Thankfully the supervisor at my outlet is a very laid-back person. He doesnt push me for sales. In fact, he is a little too laid back. He's practically out of the shop most of the time; he is either at the mobile phone shop next door chatting with his pals or he's somewhere smoking away OR he's out for a break with his pals.

On my 1st two days at work, I never made a single sale and neither did my supervisor. -_-"

Oh well, as long as I get paid and not get fired. I'm more than happy =)
(i get to use their massage chairS for free. I even get to ride the i-gallop!!
And best of all, like my friend say, I'm happy U-zapping!!

Zap those fatty layer baby!!!

Sample Questions for the IMU interview

Now that I've finally got over my IMU interview at Bkt Jalil on Tues, let me share with you some of the possible questions that are most likely to be recycled, or reused.

1. Tell me something about yourself.

2. Why did you choose to do a course in Pharmacy?

3. What qualities do you have to make a good pharmacist?

4. Why do you choose IMU to do this course?

5. What have you found out about the course you want to take?
(we JPA scholars are going to do M Pharm or Masters in Pharmacy, NOT B.Pharm)

6. Solution to given situation(s)
[ The one I got was pretending that I was a rich man on a journey to an important event. On the journey I saw an accident where there is a seriously injured person. What would I do? ]

7. Creative question
[ I didnt get this one, but previously this question is rather popular]
eg, Give 10 uses of an item (example, hairpin, a bundle of keys, pencil, etc)

I think that is all about the questions.

Duration of the interview is around 20-30 mins.
There'll be two interviewers present.
Dressing code: formal wear (skirts above knee length is acceptable)

In case there are those who want more information on our pharmacy course, do visit
[IMU]'s main page.

To be honest, I think as long as we get the interview, we are all confirmed a place in IMU. So..Don't worry about it =)
To my friends who havent go for the interview,
All the best!

IMU Interview!!!

Gyaah!! I'm finally gonna get my IMU interview!! (it took my A-Level Program Head, Pn R, such a long time to send in my IMU application form along with my other friends one too. I had passed mine to her like mayb 2/3 weeks ago, and they were only sent in to IMU LAST friday, talk about procrastination-_-")

Anyways, Miss A called me jz now and asked me when to schedule my interview because I had selected the earlier weeks of Sept( which co-incidently have ALL passedby..so I guess that took Pn R ONE month to send in the forms..)

Well, I guess I'll jz have to get my certificates and my formal attire ready because my interview is due for TMR!! Yup, the scary interview where the interviewers ask you to name 10 usage of an object, and expect u to know how to answer them within a few minutes..*sigh* Now i'm getting paranoid..I'm wondering what to questions I'll get and how do I answer them. Eg..

Q:Why do U want to take a course in Pharmacy?
A: Err...cause I think its the one course that appeals to me other than medicine. (Honestly, I think its because you can get big bucks jz dispensing medication to ppl)

Q:Can you name me some medication you know of and their usage?
A: I know Panadol is for headaches and all. There's also cough syrup and all.(Actually, I'm clueless...I think paracetamol is the only one i know of..)

What else can they ask huh? I dunno..I guess I'll know it tmr..

Saliva+tired legs+long hours-->$$$$

I think its been quite some time since I posted something. Anyways, let me start off where I stopped, which is on Thurs when I was supposedly going for my 2nd interview at the Osim outlet in Tesco.

Unfortunately, the guy who gave my my 1st interview didnt call me. So I was basically wasting my time watching anime(Paradise Kiss) online on youtube.

In the afternoon, I continued with the korean drama and I successfully finished off the whole 16-episodes which were crammed into ONE dvd. Thus the quality of some episodes were pretty crappy. All u get is distorted movements of the actors and no audio, only subtitles in chinese!

Being a "banana" I can only read very simple chinese characters like, me, u, love, etc..Thankfully, the storyline is rather simple and I understood the whole story.

Anyways, back to reality. I went to the Osim outlet during the night and asked about my 2nd interview. The guy who interviewed me was on his day-off, so the guy who was on duty called his supervisor or manager. After the call, he told me that he doesnt think I'll have to come back for a 2nd interview, the supervisor will take a look at my application form and then they'll give me a call. (so I thought I had no chance of getting employed anymore..)

Thankfully Padini had called me up earlier on Thurs afternoon and asked me which outlet I would like to be interviewed. The lady then said she'll pass my CV to the marketing ppl and they'll contact me, which till now hasnt happened...

On Friday, I spent my day cleaning up the house as usual and later on went swimming. Right after I washed the toilet, I weighed myself. Guess what?? The weighing machine showed me my long-lost-weight of 48kg!! Yippie^^ I'm thin again~ bla bla~ Kekeke^^

And on Sat and Sun, I worked like mad with a minor sorethroat. When I asked my supervisor about my pay, she said I'll only receive it END of next month! *sobs*

Anyways, its a good thing that I didnt get my pay deducted cause I heard from a friend that he got his pay deducted! So instead of getting his promised rm70 a day, he only gets rm50!! Scary huh? It seems that someone had complained about his laziness and greediness to my supervisor. Lo and behold, he got a call from her and was told his pay is only rm50 a day. LOL^^ Poor guy..

Btw, after working as a promoter for 4 days, I can finally conclude that money does not come easy. Although the pay is quite high(its usually rm70 a day, but my project is rm100 a day; most probably cause its under Nestle) Being a promoter, U'll have to waste loads of saliva talking to customers, telling them how good the product is and so on. Not only that, I have to boil hot water and brew all 4 flavours of Nescafe BodyPartner! FOUR! So my booth is packed with 4 airpots, 4 packs of the product, cups and a tray. And before and after I work, I'll have to wash all four airpots and also the tray..=( I also have to throw rubbish..somehow my rubbish bin always, ALWAYS gets full. I'll have to throw out the litter every 2 hours or so.

And now during the 3rd and 4th day, I'm getting good in identifying customers who are really interested in buying and those who are out for freebies. However I can't say anything bad about ppl who drink and dont buy, because that's human nature..

But one thing that seriously pisses me off is the type of ppl who have loads of kids; not one or two, but 4-5 kids! I mean like its HOT coffee, yet the parents insist on me giving a cup to EVERY single kid.

Common la~ U ppl never hear about sharing ah?? Duh..

And then if u dont pour for them, they have the guts to stand around the booth until u do so!!!

Another interesting thing is about a "mentally retarded" kid who went around EVERY single booth in Jusco to take drinks and food. And he wore such weird clothes. I mean like where can u find a guy who wears a bright yellow shirt and a purple-pink pants. Another promoter even told me that she and the aunties were suspecting that he doesnt wear an underwear!!! (so I guess Aunties really DO look at guys' butt..)

i-gallop baby!

After I blogged yesterday, I sat down and browsed the classified section of TheStar; I was job-hunting. The higher pay the job is, the better. Sadly most higher paying jobs are usually based in PJ or KL, which is rather far from my place *sobs*

However, I still called up a few companies asking for the location of their office(which i silently prayed would either be near a bus stop or a ktm station) Results were none of them were convenient for me. So, I decided to fall back on my initial plans of working for Tesco.

Upon reaching Tesco, I reloaded my credit at a telephone shop, which put up a vacancy notice! One word from my big mouth got the fella looking for an interview form for me to fill. Unfortunately, the pay is a little too low, Rm800 for a month, exclusive of commision. And working hours are from 9.30am till 10.30pm.-_-"
Although I was a little daunted by the pay, I finished filling the form.

Next to the shop is an Osim outlet. Then came flashbacks of me telling my friends and bf jokingly that I should work in osim so that I can use their U-zap everyday!(getting paid while losing weight is such a great bargain^^)

So I walked into the shop and asked whether they wanted to employ ppl (there was no notice put up though) Hohoho^^ he got me a form which I happily filled up and I was asked to go back for a 2nd interview tmr =)

The pay is Rm1300 a month, but the working hours are similar to the telephone shop.However, if I survive the 3 month probation, my pay will increase to Rm1600! Whee.. yet again, 13 hours per day is a little too much.. Oh well, being only an A-level graduate with minimal working experience, I think I do not have the right to bargain..

Let's pray that I'll get through the 2nd interview by the manager. and then instead of seeing me promoting nescafe, you could see me sitting on an i-gallop (like the ads minus the skimpy clothings).

p/s: the supervisor which gave me the form said my employment is VERY likely to happen, but I've gotta keep it a secret from the manager XD

Anyways,I had some free time which I used unproductively to take silly pictures using my phone

I'm in jail!! Hahha..silly huh?

Next is an "oldies" kind of picture, in which my nose looks huge =(

Being a currently unemployed girl, I usually sit in front of the idiots' box watching dvds (mainly anime or dramas, currently i'm watching a korean drama called, "my sister-in-law is 19yrs old, which i missed when it was on tv)

While feeding my eyes on nonsensical situations of the drama, I knit, or previously I did some crochet-ing.

Yup, I knit. Being a friend of the feline creature, I have picked up their habits of playing around with yarn. ( However i doubt we'll see a msian born car playing with yarn..yet again..western influence on our society) Maybe one day i should leave the left over yarn I have and see whether a cat would drop by and play with it. Haha^^

Anyways, I have started off with crochet cause I wanted to make a scarf for my bf. Once I began with my first project, I realised that crocheting is too time consuming. So I switched to knitting on my 4th project.

^my 1st attempt ended up as an unused "hand warmer" for my dad^

2nd project is a maroon coloured scarf which is with my bf, so there's no image for me to upload.

^3rd project^

I used a finer yarn and a thicker crochet needle and ended up with a very long scarf..kinda girly huh? (my bf choose the colours himself..hehe)

^4th project^

It's still under progress, and is my very 1st attempt in knitting.
I learnt knitting from a friend, but I didnt hv the tools to practice and so i forgot the steps.
When I was at sungai wang with my bf, we bumped into this shop filled with yarns. So I stopped by and got the owner to teach me how to knit!
In the end, I ended up with 3 balls of yarns and 2 knitting sticks.

The colour of the yarn is really nice^^ I jz love the colour blue!

But then, its so so expensive! (it's rm14.90 in case u cant see clearly)
A yarn made of pure cotton is even more expensive! I think its around rm25!
What a killer -_-"

Nescafe anyone?

Hi miss! Would u like to try our new nescafe bodypartner?

That's the one line that i kept repearting throughout my two days at work. Funny huh?
To make matters even more amusing, my uniform is a white t-shirt by nescafe and a bright red cap, AND a red APRON. -_-"

Being so RED makes me rather outstanding. During the 1st day at work, i was a total mess. I had no idea on how to set up my booth and so took a long time to get it ready. Nevertheless, once I got a hang of it,
it's fun!

Hehe^^ i guess its fun bcoz the girl i went for basic training ended up working with me; which mean there are two of us handling ONE booth! Kekeke XD

With two ppl around, I hardly get bored. (my chatting buddy)
When i'm not chatting with her, I'll be talking to customers. Ya..that's me. Talk a lot and drink little water. So by the end of the day I'm a dehydrated girl..

Thank goodness its only for 2 days, I can't imagine living without water for the whole week.. Hehe..

Basic Training

Gyaah! I finally confirmed my position as a promoter; but its no longer for Enfa A+, instead its for NESCAFE! Wheee!! Joy for me; the half-caffeine addict^^

Yesterday I went down by bus from Klang to Phileo Damansara, with this 17 yr old gal who asked for a job the same time as me.
Two of us were a bit confused on reaching the bus stop at PJ, then we had to wait for a lrt feeder bus to get to Demo Power's office ( Demo Power is the company which is in-charge of promoters like me) Thankfully we met two gals who were there for the training too, so we succesfully reached the office in time =)

The trainers who talked to us about the product are extremely nice. To me they a group of super-fun ppl to be with. They joked a lot, made me smile a lot =)
Although I had no problem understanding the english they spoke, the other gals who went down for training had some difficulties.

Then I thought that there are so many ppl whose English are rather poor, but yet there are so many many ppl whose English are like fantastic. So where does my english standard lies? I'm guessing maybe in the middle??
But no matter what, it only comes to show that there are so sO SO many MANY ppl in this world. And I am but one human among the millions on earth. SO what makes me special? What makes me?

Once I started thinking about that, I felt old...-_-"
So, i decided to stop thinking about such questions and jz leave it to the geniuses around the world to figure out.

And today, I went down to the office again to take my basic training. (somehow all TS = Trailing Specialist are supposed to take the basic training before we can go out to give trails to consumers) And the term itself left me at awe. I mean like ppl can be so imaginative. Eg,

promoter --> Trailing SPECIALIST

And the trainer said something like this, " you see, you dont even have to get a degree and you can be a specialist!"

Yeah right! Dont cheat me la..I know i'm innocent, but i'm not THAT innocent to buy that idea. LOL =P

But overall, I think I had lots of fun. I met a junior from my sec school, and also a bunch of guys and girls who are younger than me. (yup..i'm the oldest) To make me feel older, two of them are born in 1990! 1990! Can you imagine? So young...or in other words, I'm old -_-"

Nevertheless, its fun to be around such ppl =) I'll have to thankmy fren who introduced me to DemoPower =)

Me a promoter??

I'm gonna be a promoter. Sounds weird right?
Nvm that, I havent actually got the job though. I'll hv to go down to Damansara jz to attend a basic training, which so happens to be on this Weds, then on Thurs i'll have to go for the product training. On both occasions I'm suppposed to get rm15 for the transportation fees. Then whenever the company has something to promote, they'll inform me and see whether i'm up for it. And before the girl I contacted asked me whether i'm willing to promote a milk powder, Enfa A+.

Mua..promoting kids milk powder. I feel so old-_-" I can only imagine "aunties'' giving out milk to kids. But me?? Oh well...what can i complain about right? After all i'm aiming for a temporary job. Bcoz if i got a full-time job i would hv to take a week off to accompany my bf b4 he flies to czech. So...

Earlier, I called a company asking for a post as an event assistant. And guess what? the post is no longer available, and the lady asked me whehter i wanna work as a temp telesales in PJ...which is unaccesible to me, since i'm all the way in Klang.

I guess that from Oct i'll have to get a "permanent" job. Something that gives me EPF la.. mayb i'm gonna work in Tesco. Its near and the pay is not too bad. Or maybe i'll keep on looking for jobs in KL...I dunno...I'm fickle-minded all the time.

Of chocolate, butter and cakes..

I've finally quit my job. Thankfully my boss(or now my ex-boss) is a really nice person. She didnt scold or get mad. Well, and i got my 1st cheque!Yeah^^ Although its a rather low pay, I can't help but to help happy.Hahaha..

I think something's wrong with my computer. I'm having difficulties logging in to to blogger..I have to keep trying,again and again.. it's sad. And not only that, I can't press the enter key. I have to edit the html to get the spacing done.-_-"

Anyways, we all know today is Malaysia's independence day. So lemme jz say a Happy MERDEKA to all. (and also to myself for not working for now...hoho)

Yesterday night, my fren brought some of her frens from IMU down to Klang jz to savour seafood in Teluk Gadong.

Being a busybody, I tagged along. And throughout the whole night, I acted as a tour guide. Hahaa..Silly me..I was a little hyper cause I was so so happy to get my pay. LOL^^ (and i still am happy..but i'm starting to get a minor headache thinking of my next job..which i havent found..)

After eating dinner, which consisted of crabs, prawns, "heh gou" , belacan kangkung and la-la bee hoon; we went to JJ to catch one of the silliest movies I've ever watched- Beneath Still Waters.

The whole story was crap; crappy actors and actress, crappy lines, crappy effects. Although some of the scenes were pretty good, esp the gross-looking monsters and mad ppl who mutilate themselves, but thanks to our censorship board, those highlights were cut! So..by mid of the story i felt like a fool who is watching a foolish story -_-" and i paid rm10 to watch it..argh..
Oh ya,I baked 2 cakes in the past few days!!! Yeah..the 1st one is a chocolate cake for my bf, and the 2nd one is a butter cake for my dad.

a slice of the chocolate cake =) Looks yummy huh?

mixing the flour, eggs, butter and water. In the background is the Pilsbury ready-made flour

baking the mixture in the oven!!

It's baked!!!

preparing the chocolate topping

Yeah!! Butter cake with chocolate topping!!

Depressed?? Maybe a little

Well, jz a few moments back, i visited a blog which according to my fren, is written by a 17 yr old who had had sex since she was 13.
Being the curious being that I am, I decided to drop by and see, i mean read what she has running in the mind of such a girl.
Bad move.
In the end, my expectations of juicy parts were dashed. I was left feeling completely useless and inferior compared to her.
for one, her english is super-duper-fantastically-amazingly good; like those you read in novels. All those "bombastic"(well, its not THAT bombastic..it's jz words that i NEVER use.) Actually, all this while I had great pride in my english as I was quite good in my sec school days. (compared to some of my classmates that is..I even got an A1 for my 1119 paper!)
Oh well, the feeling of being beaten is so-not-nice. Bitter.
Feeling like a fool for thinking highly of herself.
And then, she's pretty. Pretty pretty. I mean like she's only 17 and she had this curves
that make me look flat. (in fact I am flat..duh..-_-")
My self esteem is low. No one said anything about me, yet I feel down to lowest level u can imagine. And I blame my pimply face for doing that to my confidence-_-"
I can go on and on complaining about the things I dislike, because with this kind of mood all the bad things are running around my mind. BUT, time does not permit me to do so, and it sounds like its going to rain. Heavily. Armed with a tiny umbrella, i better make my move soon.

As the days pass by

I havent been blogging for a long time, more than a week. To be more precise, I think I stopped updating my blog since my bf came back from Kuching. (bcoz he says i ignore him when I blog..i get so self-absorbed in writing, so he doesnt like that) Well, now i'm in my office..and he's not around..neither is my boss, and i've done all the duties she asked me to complete..so duh..A golden chance should n ot be wasted, right? LOL^^
Anyways, i think i better start on what happened in the previous week.
I took a day off from work and went back to INTEC to get my results!
Well..actually the results could be taken on the day b4(thurs) but i didnt know..the last info i received was telling me to get them on fri. And on thurs, i heard that many ppl got 15mark(out of 15)
So..being an SSer i knew i would get a 15 too! LOL^^ jz that my total marks for each subkect werent THAT amazing compared to others. But i'm pretty happy about it. The worst marks was 78/90 for my chemistry paper2. So duh..who cares..as long its an A in the end.
Goodness..i dont reallt recall what happened on sat..lemme think..*thinking real hard*
went down to KL with my parents and my bf. Again, we went to sungei wang, low yat n times square. (it somehow is my fav place) i didnt buy anything much except for a comic book called HOT GIMMICK. (man..i love that comic so-so much!! the story line is interesting, the characters drawn are so beautiful..and the guys in it..wow! handsome!!!
Ohya...guess what? the prices of thumbdrives are falling like mad!
I think i got my thumbdrive last month for RM73...and then at low yat...i saw the EXACT same model for only RM68!!!! Why!!! I'm cheated of my RM5!! I demand my money back!
Was supposed to go to INTEC to hand in my IMU application form..but i since i think it isnt nice to take a day off again, i asked my bf to do the honours for me! LOL^^
erm..boring day at work..didnt do much..my bf followed me to office and he pratically slept while i was working. My boss didnt come again...-_-" but asked me to create a blog which unfortunately i cant reveal jz yet.
took off from work again..why? ITS my bf's Birthday!
Happy Birthday Bao Bei!!!
I baked a cake!!! Woot!! And guess what? it dint turn out as hard as a stone!!!!! Yeah!!!
In fact...its delicious. LOL^^
Actually its all thanks to the ready-made flour. All i did was add water, eggs and butter to it, and then mix it, bake an wa-lah...u get a cake!!!
For lunch, i cooked pasta. (my specialty! actually its the only dish i can cook-_-" other than noodles la..)
work work work..
my boss thought i was taking 2 days off, so she didnt come to the office again. But then she sent a msn msg to me telling me to change the blog i made for her a little, and then type down all the companies listed on yellowpages online, along with their email and website address. -_-"
i seriously wanna quit..jz that somehow i dont hv the guts to tell her...cause when she's around she'll give me really good advice...so...i dunno...
BUT...if i continue working in this place for only rm500 a month...not only will i be poorer..plus my pimples are somehow getting worse..i dunno why, and it saddens me so*sobs*
And so, i dont even hv the money to do facials or go see a specialist, or my dreams of buying an airticket so i can fly to czech to visit my bf when he's there...
this is hopeless..

I'm broke..

After about 3 weeks of work, I still feel the same. Initially I had thought i'll feel beter or smarter after learnng stuff from my boss. But sadly, i dont feel any different.
Well, its not like I didnt learn anything at all. I learnt some important stuff on global investment, wills trusts, unit trusts, loans..etc..but i still feel that my knowledge is at the minimal point. There's jz too much which I do not know. All that has improved is maybe my typing speed, coz all i do alone in the office is practicaly type and type,c reate power point presentations, make summary on stuff my boss wanna read. Haih..i'm a plain secretary if u ask me. And quite a low pay too.
Nevertheless, i was asked by my boss to extend my working period with her, most probably cause she cant find any other new interns to work for her. Plus she prefers students of actuarial science, which i'm not. so there are mnay calcualtions which i do not know at all..remember the PV Fv thingy?
What-so-ever, my mum has advised me to continue working for her because this sort of chances for me to be involved in a financial company will unlikely happen again in the future. She says i should treat this as a stepping stone for me to enter the insurance and unit trust side. -_-" maybe..but mayb not..
So, i started thinking. I compared myself to my friend who was working in the office for 3 months. And he obviously learnt a hell lot of things. Me? i doubt i can. Mostporbably bcoz i hv this lousy attitude. Its not like dont wanna learn, but somehow i lack the motivation to continue.
Suddenly i notice the whole load of crap i written above -_-" maybe when u type faster, what u hv in mind comes down faster. so it indirectly means more and more words to put in and to write.

I'm Old....

Hehe..this weekend is the biggest proof that i'm getting old..because i spent quite some time with my bro's frens. They're all younger than me by 2years...goodness..

On friday night, after work, I went out with my brother's friends to watch "Click". There were about 9-10 of them, including me of course =) I dressed up a little cause it felt a long long time since i went out with ppl other than my parents..so some how i felt happy. The change was something inviting to me. I even put on some make-up! Heheh =)

do i look cute? (hoho..another milestone for me the great triple S..hahaha..kidding, or mayb i'm not kidding;)

Anyways, "Click" is so-so-super-duper nice! I mean, its got loads and loads of humour..(with a little dose of 18sx jokes too) And in the end, it has a really touching moment which made me cry a little..*sobs* when py told me she cried when she watched click, i was shocked! How can a comedy make u cry? well..seems like it does. =)

Then, we went mamak at a stall which i havent been too since form 5..-_-" man..i felt so old. But when they all started talking, i found myself blurr. Why? cause they were talkign about some jokes by some guy whom i dunno. Then, this girl asked my bro, "how come ur sis so innocent one? not good u know..must teach her ma"

Okie..so mayb i'm a little innocent when it comes to jokes..-_-"

The next day, i tagged along with my bro's and 3 of their guy frens to go jogging at taman rakyat. Its a hill near my place, but i've never been there. Here's some pics of the place..

quite nice huh?
we jogged ( only a few mins) up to the highest point of the hill, and i took this pic (poor quality though..cause my phone's camera is erm..not that good)

after that hard work, i woke up today with a muscle ache on my thighs..i'm so so old.

Psycho day..

Somehow I'm seriously beginning to think that Jpa has too much money spent on unneccessary things. For one, I jz attend a darn silly "course" back in INTEC yesterday; the psycho "course" which was conducted by Jpa personnels.

Before I went INTEC, I was informed that the course was 8am till 5pm. So, considering the traffic jam along the highway, I left my house around 7.30am. Duh..halfway on the journey, a friend sent an sms to me and said the time was changed to 9.30am! What the @^#!

OK..that is nothing to shout about actually bcoz almost ALL activities organised by Jpa ALWAYS start LATE. So..there's no surprise. BUT, it seriously pisses off ppl.

On the way to INTEC, I was a triple S fella. (SSS = Super Shiok Sendiri) It was a girl. She was driving this little kancil with quite a number of stickers on her back windscreen. The first thing I saw said
"If u think this car is cute, wait till you see the owner"

ok...what's so cute about a kancil? It's small..and its not like her kancil is modified or painted in any oustanding hues..so how can it be cute?

Nvm about that, the next thing I saw was this logo of "intel Inside" BUT, instead of intel...it spelled "AWEK"
"what's awek?' asked my dad..
well, awek is a malay slang that means a cute girl..or girlfriend..maybe i got it wrong..but it definately means girl.

And on the top of the two stickers, was a huge sticker of University Malaya.

When I passed the car..I saw a lady with a hood..but..i couldnt get a glimpse of her face. So I couldnt decide whether the sticker speaks the truth. BUT no matter what, I do praise her of her great self confidence. Thus, I would think that she is a Super-Shiok-Sendiri girl.

Back in INTEC, I had to settle the clearance of my hostel things and also to get my leaving certificate and my graduation pictures. About my picture..I look uhm..ugly. I wasn't even looking at the camera, and i was slouching when i recerived my cert. So..i practically burned my RM18 which I paid for those pics.

By then, we were allowed to enter the hall. Everyone was a little noisy at first, but when the speaker spoke, we all fell silent. Arent we good kids? Haha..kidding.
The speaker than said..since this activity is only a halfday activity, we'll only start our session at 10.30am!

WHAT! Wasnt this suppose to be till 5pm? Well..this comes to prove the great "capability" of msian ppl bending time to fit their own agenda.

When the actual session started, the speaker gave back our results for the psychology test and a career test which we took some time ago. Both tests were objective questions which we unhappily finished in a very short time.

My results for my psychology test was erm..a little abnormal. Because my line graph didnt fit the so-called-normal graph. On the other hand, JJ and PY got the almost perfect line graph..-_-" Man..am I THAT abnormal??

The results told me that I was erm..submissive, spontaneous, and more indifferent than sensitive. Well, these were all my not-so-normal points. Other than that, I fit the graph rather well.

Thankfully I wasn't dominant and hostile, if not, I would have been called to stay back for a "one to one" session with the speakers..

"shiok sendiri" 2

Another weekend and another achievement! Yeah!
Hehehe..Me the official (shiok sendiri) SS-er is so happy and proud of herself today!
Because I managed to watch the china hdvds that i bought! Previously I could play it, but only the video appeared. The audio was missing. Back then I blamed the dvd player, but it ended up the fault of the amplifier!

Well, in my house, my dad connects all the players(dvd and vcd player) to the amplifier. So everytime we use the player, we would hv to switch on the amplifier.

Since, I was rather free earlier on, I decided to try playing the dvd, again. The dvd played and only gave me visual images...as i was about to give up, i realised the white and red "holes" on the tv.(i dont know what they are called..so let's jz call them holes..or is it an outlet??? hmm...who cares)

main point is, i suddenly had this brilliant idea to connect the dvd player directly to the tv without going through the amplifier. Yup, i still remember how to connect dvd players to the tv, thanks to my 6days stint in the electrical apartment in tesco.

Anyways, my plan really worked!! Whee...i felt so proud of myself. Even my bros and dad didnt figure that out! Hahhaha...i'm so full of myself. heheh...

And boy, the drama is just nice! I like the lead actor. He's so darn cute....I watched more than 4hours of drama..wait,..maybe more than that...i think i spent more than 6hours in front of the idiot box. I feel like an idiot now. Hahahhaha.....XD

Ok..this is the main cover of the drama..but its so ugly.. everyone in it looks horrible. Even rainie looks ugly...

isnt this much better =) there are quite a lot of kissing scenes in throught the drama..i mean..a lot more compared to other taiwnanese dramas i watched before.

Hehe...one day i'll hv to search online to see whether there's an SS-er club or forum or something.. If there aint one, i'll make one. Hahahha...and then all Ss-ers will be united in a BIG ss-er family.

hoho..if only that will happen ;)

My day off

Yeah! After working for only 3days, i got a day off.
Hahaha..although i'm really happy to be able to wake up later in the morning, I cant help but to think that this job isn't getting me anywhere. -_-"
I mean like, the boss asked me not to come on friday(which is today) because my colleague isn't coming, and she herself wont be around to guide me. So just like that i'm given an off day. Hmmm..than my parents kept asking me whether I learnt anything during my 3days there.
"Learn what?"
Duh..i had no answers for their question. All I did in the office was updatethe daily changes in the market namely, the prices of unit trusts, the indices of the world market, and oh..i even hv to update the prices of world currencies too.

So, what did I learn? Nothing much i would say. I think i'm the kind of person who needs serious scolding to move an inch. Although i'll get mad if someone scoldes me. How ironic. -_-''

Well, since i'm "so" free, I slept like a pig from 12.00pm to 10.00 am today. Haha! It's been awhile since i slept that much. Initially i had intended to wake up earlier to do some cleaning in my house, but the weather was so cooling that I can't resist the temptation to sleep longer.

Once i woke up, i called a office to ask about a part-time job in sept. It's only a one week stint. And the pay is RM6/hour. And food and uniform is provided. So there you go. I was absolutely tempted to join. Unfortunately the office is so far, around KLCC. (from my place to KLCC by public transportation should take around erm..80mins? i dunno..havent really calculated the time b4)

But, i'll definately go for it, mayb sometime erm..next week? i'm not sure..i'll see how it goes. Maybe i should go to the office today since they only open for application during office hours. -_-" Nvm, time will take its course.

After that, the kay-poh me, decided to check out my friends blogs. Wa, from one friend to another. And realised quite a number of ppl from INTEC blog. I think i'm gonna add them in my list soon. Hehe =)

So, as i looked through[LynnXuan's]blog i realised that she mentioned me. How sweet =) Hehe..actually she mentioned about the story of the swans which i told her about. Actually, I heard that story from my Sibu friend.

When I was holidaying in Sarawak, I noticed that every town or city in Sarawak has their own icons. These icons are made up into large statues which stand almost everywhere in the town. For instance in Kuching, u can see statues of cats around. (i dont hv the pics with me..)
and in Sibu u can see swans

While in Miri u can see seahorses.(again i dont hv pics..)
Anyways, I heard two different versions on why Sibu choose the swan as their icons.

Sibu used to be an "ugly" town, but after upgrades, Sibu turned into a beautiful town, which is similar to the story of ugly duckling. ie the ugly duckling turned into a beautiful swan.

the supposedly ugly duckling.

version 2
A year back, there were lots of swans walking around the streets of sibu, thus the town council picked swan to represent Sibu -_-"

somehow this story seems a bit unreal. (I prefer the story of the ugly duckling.)

So this is how working works..

Today, I went through 8 hours of my 1sy day at job without any hitches! Yeah! Big cheers to myself!
Hhahaa..it was quite a day. As the job was in subang, i had to take the ktm to work. My dad sent me to the train station adn when i reached there, the train jz left. So i had to wait another 10mins for the next one. Once i reached subang, i was a little lost cause i didnt really know the way to walk to my office. My dad told me to take the main road because its much safer esp since nowadays there are mad ppl going around with parang knives slashing innocent students n innocent ppl. (if u dont know this, u better ask someone. the poor guy was a ktar student)

I that walking by the main road is for my good, but u hv no idea how long it is! For starters, there was this "ang-mo-lou" who was waiting to cross the mainroad in front of carrefour with me..once the light turned green for us to cross, i dashed across and was obviously so much faster than him. BUT..as i was walking along some shoplots towards my office, he was already there! In front of some shop with a tin of drink on his hand! That was how slow i was...

Thankfully the day didnt go downhill from there =) work was ok. But i'm sure it'll get worse starting from tmr..but hopefully not so soon. I wanna enjoy some relaxing moments summore.

"shiok sendiri"

Lately I've been hearing the term "shiok sendiri" a LOT. "shiok sendiri" or ss in short actually means erm... self-illusion. (that's the best translation i can give)
For instance, jz as I wanted to update my blog, my bro jumped in and comment that my blog is officially a blog of a shiok-sendiri person-->ME!
Oh well, it can't be helped can it? i mean like i'm virtually a jobless girl after my A-levels. So duh, of course my time and only joy comes from blogging.( well, its not my only joy..i'm not that freaky..in fact i'm usually disconnected from the internet compared to my bros)

Well, not only that, when i was holidaying in sarawak with my frens, one of them said i "SS" when i bargained with the CD shop owner..sobs..

BUT, the worst thing that could happen to an SS-er happened today!
Well, i think i've already mentioned about me winning some nivea hamper. At least that's what the letter said. So there i was day-dreaming (very typical for an SS-er) .
Dreaming about getting this super big hamper
while getting a photo shot,
with me there beaming with a big smile.

Well, the dream crashed down just like that. I'll show u the pic of my so-called-hamper.

ok..i dont know what happened to my internet connection. Its darn slow to upload the pic. So who cares. Final point is that my dreams were jz dreams. Shattered into a million pieces. hahaha...oh well, at least i wont hv to buy any facial stuff for quite some time =)

I'm gonna start working tmr..so nervous. I jz called up my future employer jz now, and she sounded like she forgotten me. And she even forgot that tmr is the 1st! goodness..i wonder how i'll survive tmr..

Another day..

I woke up this morning with a slight backache. Most probably cause I spent lots of time sweeping n mopping the whole 1st floor of my house yesterday. Then helped out around the house by doing some simple chores. I changed bedsheets for two of my brothers, sent those dirty linens for washing, hung them, and then sent in a 2nd batch of clothes for washing. -_-" yup..we have lots of clothes.
Then i took a break while reading the papers. Next up, i cleaned my room a little. It was all so messy after i unpacked my stuff. As I cleared my desk, i saw an envelope. And inside was...a letter of course! duh..

And guess what! I won a hamper! Woohooo! Its a hamper with rm101 worth of nivea products! Hehe..i havent collected it yet cause u can only collect it during office hours on weekdays,..too bad. Cant wait to get my hamper. Come to mama!! Hehehe =)

Anyways, i then went out with my sec school frens to meet my senior who jz got back from the states. Man...she's still as pretty as usual. I really like her hair..fine smooth brownish baby hair. Wish mine were like that. Unfortunately it isnt. Mine was labelled "course n thick" by some student in the A cut above academy, when i went for the rm10 cut+wash thingy. Even loads of conditioner doesnt help my hair -_-"
When i got home, my mum asked me to help her type some exam questions, which i reluctantly had to do. Typing words is not a porblem to me. But she asked me to draw complicated diagrams related to physics. I mean like those electrical circuits with those "perintang" and all. -_-'' I was so pissed off. I drew ugly pics which were out of proportion, and somehow i messed her whole exam questions. So i gave up and decided to de-stress by watching some taiwan drama which i bought while visitin Sibu.

BUT, the darn hdvd didnt perform its duties! There was no sound! At first i thought maybe it was because i didnt set the sound surround properly...played the hdvd again..no sound!
Then i tried a normal dvd, wham! The sound blasted out so loudly cause i had set it to the loudest volume. I was then left feeling utterly depressed and upset and practically cursing my dvd player. Actually my dvd player is rather good i would say. It can actually play avi format, which means i can watch dvds intended for computers only with that dvd player. BUT, why oh why cant it play some china dvd...

So, i thought maybe my computer could play the darn dvd. Once the computer read it, it said the dvd has some error la, bla bla bla..cannot perform la..and some whole lots of crap which in the end means, i still CAN'T play the darn HDVD..-_-"

So much for my plans of watching taiwan drama series. Btw, the series i wanted to play is called "Devil beside you". Its supposed to be some really really nice show. All my frens were so happy when i bought the dvd cause they wanted to watch it again. Oh well...mayb i'll jz have to get some cheap china brand dvd player. Suddenly, it crossed my mind that maybe this is a marketing strategy used by the chinese ppl to get ppl to buy their dvd players...-_-"

2weeks away from home

Its been quite some time since i blogged..
In fact, i think it has almost been 2 weeks..
4days 2nights for the tioman trip
then from 19th till 27th i was touring(almost the whole)sarawak =)

let's start from the tioman trip
The accomodation there is pretty erm..basic i would say. But other than that, the food was ok(no one got diarrhoea after taking the meals on the 2 nights) and the places we went to were pretty beautiful =)

Sarawak was really nice =)
my trip there can be summed up as
KL --> Kuching --> Sibu --> Miri --> KL

I got AirAsia tickets which were on promotion, so the air tickets only costs rm120, inclusive of taxes. And the flight back to KL from miri was using an airbus! Hehe =) actually, i cant really tell the difference btw a normal plane n an airbus. I only know that an airbus' interior is newer. And erm..there are white scented gases flowing out, which makes the plane smell so much better =)

Oh..i'm so tired..wanna sleep..
And jz now i went out to meet up with Suzy ( my housemate in INTEC who by now is on the way to Bangalore,India) She's a really cute girl =) i can still remember how soft spoken she was when i first met her. I had to get her repeat her words almost everytime. Thankfully by the end of her 1 and a half yrs in INTEC, she spoke in a higher dB but still some other ppl can't catch what she's saying. HAhahaa XD
Also, she's a really good cook. Mastered her already fantastic cooking skills by cooking for PY n me =) Hoohohoo....

I'm so blur. I dont even know what i have been doing for the past few days.
It seems that ever since I finished my Alvls, I never really did anything porductive what-so-ever. All i have been doing is tagging along with my dad on his outings to shopping malls in town almost every single day. It tires me sometimes.
For example, yesterday, my dad brought my bf and i out to The Curve. Then, we went to watch "The Pirates of the Carribean". Well, watching the movie is definately enjoyable. Esp since Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom are my fav eye-candy on-screen =) They look extremely dashing even though they might look rather erm..dirty on-screen. While Keira...erm...I can only say this, she doesnt look good tanned. In fact, i think many girls can never pull off the tanned look.

Anyways, back to story. The most annoying thing is that we didnt do anything interesting after watching the movie. We walked and walked around. Made loooong stops at bookshops such as popular and mph. Pity we didnt stop by borders, if not i would hv enjoyed myself reading mangas -_-"
Well...its not that bad..but i do like sulking and complaining when i get the chance. Hahha..so sue me! Jz kidding.

Today, i finally learnt how to convert wma files to mp3 files!!!! YEAh!! Cheers to me!
HAhha..i know i'm stupid..can never realy master computer related stuff..
but anyways, i finally downloaded the programme to convert the files. Its actually cause my phone can only support mp3 files. AND i only hv a memory of 40MB. AND its NOT extandable. So duh, i have to convert or minimise my files so i can get more songs. Haha...

clockwise : happy me, annoyed me after posing with a smile for so long, my parents& me, my bf & i

It's hard to imagine, but i have finally graduated from INTEC after 2 long years!
Yup, i know that i have said that i'm done with alevels some time ago in one of the blog, but THAT time i have not officially graduated from intec itself.
But NOW, i have officially graduated from INTEC. Which means i'm no longer a student of INTEC.

Here's a list of things which i no longer hv to go through.
1. Waking up in the morning jz to squeeze a place into the bus. Yeah..like ants running towards a small hole..well, at least that's how it looks like when i look out from my window in the 5th floor. Haha^^

2. And no more standing in the bus through out the journey to INTEC. ( at least that won't happen on board a bus anymore..but then i'll hv to bear with the standing when i travel using the komuter train or the lrt. *sigh* THAT"S how bad our transportation system is. Sad but true.

3. No more eating out at a place where only malay food and mamak stalls are available. Hopefully that way i can lose some weight at home. I gained 2kg since march..i think its march cause that was when my trials started...

4. erm..erm.. i cant think of anymore..

Ok...actually INTEC is a really nice place. The hostel is great. Especially since my unit has only 3residents including myself. (actually its supposed to be a 4person per unit = 2person/room)
And also, i can study better in the hostel cause there arent any distractions such as the tv (we do hv a chared tv room in each block, but since i live onthe 5th floor i seldom go down to watch tv. Not unless its my fav series the "Desperate housewives" =)
Plus, my room doesnt hv a comp cause we didnt get an internet connection. I know of some students who got internet connection, and they can jz surf the net or blog, or chat in the comfort of their rooms. How nice huh? But that's not for me, i get distracted by the net.
Also, compared to some public Universities hostel, INTEC's hostel is strategically located in an area with a mini giant for us students to shop for groceries. Plus, there's Watsons, McDonalds, KFC, Baker's Cottage, Warnet, Bata, Speedy, and erm..lots of eating stalls =)

Well, its definately a great experience, esp since i think i hv succesfully perfected the skill of cooking using a ricecooker! YEAH! Hahaaha^^
I think i'll miss the place a bit. A tiny little bit only. Hahaha..and finally..good riddance of Mak and Pak Guards who "fine" ppl who wear "baju singkat yg menonjolkan belakang" "baju kebaya yg selit terlalu tinggi or menonjol" "seluar jeans yg ketat" "lengan pendek" "seluar pendek(even for guys)" and lots and lots more. If u wanna know the full list, jz get fined by the guard and u'll get a piece of rahter long rectangular paper with all the so-called-offences in INTEC.

Anyways, here's some pics of today's ceremony and also some pics of INTEC memories.

Friends and my different looks(unfortunately i don't know how to piece pics together using photoshop yet.i'll try to learn it IF possible..hahaha..)

Great Day!

Hehehe ^-^ It's been quite some time since i had a great day. (well, my previous days were good..but not great. And to me, great day= fun+ memorable day)

First off, i woke up at 8.30am, bathe and got ready to go out with my bf and his sis. As i got dressed up in the clothes which i picked the night b4, i realised i grew fatter! The short skirt which i bought around 2years back had become tight! Especially around the hips -_-" (i know wide hips are good for child-bearing, but its not pretty in short skirts nor jeans. In fact, its hard to make wide hips look great..urgh~)

Although the skirt was tight, i still wore it. I must make full use of the skirt before the day where i can't even zip up comes. Hopefully that day wont come too soon. I only wore that skirt a few times thanks to the rules in INTEC; the land where baby tee's and jeans are forbidden. And honestly, i doubt i'll be wearing the skirt anytime soon again. Mayb i'm jz being paranoid, but i can't help noticing how fat, flabby and hairy my legs are. Its jz distracting.

So, after my bf got ready, we went off to subang parade. Thankfully my dad had an appointment with his friend, so he dropped my bf and i "near" the ktm station. (All the transportation money saved!) And later on, my bf's sis picked us up and then we headed to Times Square!

There was some minor traffic jams along the journey, but it was still bearable, esp since i'm not the driver! haha! Anyways, we then decided to park inside the parking bay of times square itself. It was by bf's sis 1st time parking inside the compound, so we were all unsure of the parking charges. At the ticketing booth, we saw a shocking fee!
rm3 for the 1st hour
rm2 for subsequent hours
(applicable during sat,sun, and public holidays)
Boy were we shocked. But the damage has been done as the parking ticket was already in the driver's hand.

Once we parked, we decided to speed up our shopping time so that the parking fees wont kill us. 1st stop - Low Yat Plaza
Items in shopping list - optical mouse, webcam, bluetooth adapter
In the end - we managed to have our lunch at Mr teppanyaki, and we bought all our stuff, and even got and extra microphone.

2nd stop -Sungai Wang/ BB plaza
Items in mind - Winter clothing for my bf
In the end - we got some of the winter clothings so we had to make another extra stop

3rd stop -
Lot 10
In the end -
we manage to get an almost completed set of winter clothings for my bf. And his sis bought a luggage too =) We were all happy ppl after that as we completed buying all the items in the shopping list. As it meant no more walking around to hunt for stuff anymore. By that time, we were all hungry ppl. So after we put the stuff in the car, we headed to our 4th stop.

4th stop - Jalan Yap Ah Loy
Mission - "Pan-mee" dinner
In the end - We had dinner and a specialy guest appearance by...meow!

oww..ain't she cute?

Now, a look who's in-charge of taking the great shot of the kitty cat!

Well, actually...the main reason i had a nice day was due to the super adorable kittens i saw today =)
