Lately, laziness is all that fill my mind. I've been so lazy to blog. Actually, it's most likely due to the fact that I do not have internet connection in the rented apartment.
But, it's not like I don't go to the net at all. There's plenty of computers with internet access in the campus, yet I'm too lazy to blog. All I do in the computer lab is check my mails and it's not like I've got mails..all are either forwarded mails or plain spam from unknown ppl *it's so pathetic*
Nevertheless, I dare not blog in the campus for I fear writing when people are around. I only blog within the vicinity of my home, away from the prying eyes of public. Yet, I want people to read my blog. -_-'' ironic isn't it?
Back to life in campus, on MONday, I saw my batch-mate wearing the same black skirt as I was! @.@
When it was break time, the two of us stared at each other's skirts till she initiated the conversation,

N : Are our skirts the same?
Me : I think so.
N : Where did u get ur skirt from?
Me : From the morning market.
N : Oh. How much was it?
Me : rm15
N : rm 15!
Me : *shocked* Huh? Is it very expensive? Where did u buy urs?
N : Petaling street.
Me : How much was it?
N : erm, 30 plus.
Me : Oh...
The conversation ended there as I feared if I had continued, I might make her feel bad.'s that UNHAPPY and Oh-so-crappy feeling you get when you find out that you've been ripped off.

Moral of the story - Try not to buy things from [Petaling Street], UNLESS
1. you are well equipped with bargaining skills, OR
2. you don't mind being ripped off (which I'm sure not many are willing to do so) OR
3. refrain from asking other people about the price when you see someone with the exact same thing as yours.

Yesterday, a guy from my batch, showed my friends and I street magic!
Hehehe^^ it was so cool! It's like having David Blaine showing off his skills to us! LoL!
Though the guys' hand was shaking a lot when he performed the tricks, it was still amazing!
And all he used was a deck of poker cards!
First, he asked us to select a card from the deck without letting him know it and place the card back in the middle of the deck. He tapped the deck once, and "ta-da" the very same card was right on the top of the deck!!!

My friends and I were blown away! After that, he should us a couple of other tricks and the one trick that I find mind blowing was the one where he made the whole deck turn into the very same card which we saw initially! And with another tap, he made the whole deck turn into the initial deck!

Now, I have watch David Blaine on tv while going 'WOW" *with my mouth gaping wide*
And, I have also watch one episode where they revealed the secret behind street magic; something about optical illusion and all that.
BUT, seeing it in real life is really exciting and makes you wanna learn about it. (although I seriously doubt I'll ever master the trick, not to mention I might not even have the chance to learn about the trick. -_-'')
When I got back home yesterday, my mum stopped by this malay stall by the road selling my favourite 'keropok-lekor' and also 'goreng pisang'. As we were ordering, two fair Chinese ladies stopped too. At first, I didn't take notice, but once the lady ordered, I knew that they were definitely from China.

This is because when she ordered, she pointed to the food and said
'zhe ge' while pointing the number one to the mak cik.
Amusingly, the mak cik understood and packed the lady's food while smiling.
I found that incident amusing and I can't help but to smile as I thought,
"There are some things that doesn't really require language after all."
