Since women live longer than men......

For the past few days, Peas have been going out with her brothers and their friends, who are two years younger than her. There are two particularly interesting things that happened.

Situation1 : We were out in the bookstore (Popular) since one of my brother's friend wanted to get a book. So automatically, I headed off to the magazines section, and took a copy of CLEO to read. (Peas wanted to read those Taiwanese magazines as their models are all so pretty, but unfortunately those were bind up *sigh*)

Friend A came up to me and said,

"Shouldn't you be reading something more intellectual?"

Peas: Because I realised that being intellectual doesn't really matter.

"No, i'm serious. You should be reading magazines like this *pointing to national geographic and some business magazine*. You'll learn a lot."

Peas: *sweats betul* Can I not be intellectual? What's the point of being so intellectual?

That statement, coming from a guy two years younger than me, made me feel like I was way less matured than him. What happened to the days when guys mature slower than females?? *LOL*

Situation 2: Peas forgot where we were, but we were out somewhere when the same friend said this,

"Do you know that it's proven that women live almost 5 years older then men?"

Peas: Yeah, I know. So?

"So, that means if you get a husband who's the same age as you. He'll most likely die earlier than you and you'll be alone in the end."

Peas: *LOL* So you want to find a girl who's older than you?

"I'm planning to get a girlfriend who's at least 5 years older than me so that we can die the same time. Then I needn't leave her alone. So those girls who look for men who are older than them are actually looking for trouble." *LOL*

Well well well...Peas was recently reminded of this incident again, and so she googled it. The most recent article that she found published in Time magazine online (wahh...soo intellectual :P) can be found here.

In the article, it was stated that women actually live 5 - 10 years longer than men!
And it's said that women live longer than men because:

1. Delay in the onset of diseases like Cardiovascular diseases in women, due to the iron-deficiency problem we have, thanks to our monthly periods.

2. Depression in older men i.e more stress.

3. Possibility to do with genetics as women have two X chromosomes.

And that is why women live longer. But 5 - 10 years sound like a long time, no?

So technically speaking, IF i don't wanna end up alone during my old withered days for too long, I should be getting a man at least 5 years younger than me! That means I should be looking for a guy that is.....years old. (Age of the possible male shall not be reveal as that will reveal mine as well. LOL~~~~)

Btw, this is a friendly reminder to my fellow batchmates,

Girls, if you're interested in a younger male, fret not, it's actually beneficial, you'll keep each other's company for a longer time! LOL~~~

Guys, if you're interested in an older female, that's so good of you, you'll be her knight in shining armour even though you're old! LOL~~~~~

Holidays week 1

Peas initially started off the weekends by doing her posology and case law reports for Pharmacy Practice 2. Mission accomplished. One day per report = 2 days spent.

Peas wanted to study for Pharmacy Practice 2 for her coming class test mid January. Started off with the module guide given. Tough luck. Too many words. Too many mindless and uninteresting stuff. Mission to cover the module guide within 3 days failed miserably.

In between the desire to study, was the desire to chill and have fun.
Ultimately, desire to have fun > desire to study.
Thus, Peas spent her days ,

clicking on facebook playing mindless games like Elven Blood +
watching anime +
doing some IMU Ball related stuff +
cooking lunch +

going out
little pressies i made for my friends...i left the red wrapper back in uni so i had to resort to a diff wrapper. Peas like the red one coz it has the names of ALL the rain deers. Everytime Peas sees the red wrapper, she'll go

" Rudolf the red-nose raindeer......" *LOL*

And Peas likey this picture, coz the flashes of light feels "cool".

And on christmas day itself, Peas did something even more meaningful. Peas went to PJ to listen to a dhamma talk by Ajahn Brahm ^^

So that's all from Peas ^^

CAL session...

CAL session means Computer Assisted Learning session.

Yes. We, students in IMU have a session where we "study" using computers online. Though it sounds tech-savvy and all, it isn't (or at least i think it isn't).

Usually CAL sessions are short i.e plus minus one hour per session, depending on how long the online questions were.

And unfortunately for me and my fellow group C and D members, we had Mr Keivan as our lecturer-in-charge today. When he let us know that he'll collect the attendance at 4 pm, most of us (if not all of us) were shocked.

A batch mate who sat opposite me kept saying no and asked me to voice out our dissatisfaction. And so I did.

"Sir, this is our 3rd CAL session for the subject and there are only 3 quizzes. Some of us have done two of it, and only need to finish off the 3rd quiz which only consists of 10 questions."

He said, "So what time do you think you can finish it?"

We said, "3".

And the next thing I knew, he bombarded us with a question regarding the first quiz.
" how many types of adverse drug reactions are there?"


No one answered loud enough.

So, he asked another question,

"Give me an example of a type B reaction."

I flipped my module notes and was partially waving my hands frantically. That must have caught his attention and he said,

"What about the girl at the back?"

"toxic epidermal necro....lysis" I replied while peeping at my book.

"What does it mean?"

"err...something related to dead skin cells," I said after pondering.

"good...so name me a type c reaction without refering to your book."

I managed to flip the page and saw that it was a continuous kind of reaction.

But I didn't dare to reply immediately, as I began to chicken out.

I think he said something about "since your friend is unable to answer the question....."

"I will be back at 4."


Yes. It was literally silent, at least for several minutes before he finally left the venue. *sigh*

SO now i'm stuck in e-lab, blogging. LOL....


I can't sleep.

Peas was awake since 5am, and right now it's 6.19am. *sigh*
I am rather prone to getting insomnia, but that's usually during exams or stressful periods. And currently, I don't think I'm having either.

I was tempted to get more sleep (who doesn't?) but then the tossing and turning on the bed didn't help much, and neither did my thin blanket which doesn't really keep me warm in this cold weather. *sighs again as peas thinks of what will happen to her when she goes over to scotland*

Singapore Trip


I skipped one day of class just to go to Singapore with my mum and my bros.
Best of all, no one knew that I skipped class. (except my housemates I guess ;p)

I reached back a few hours ago, and met several of my batch mates while heading "home". When I asked one of them,
"What happened in class today?"
Siva said,

"Eh, you didn't come for class today?"

Well, duh, point proven that most of my batch mates are usually oblivious to their "surrounding", me included. LOL ;p

Anyways, interesting things that I saw in Singapore.

hmmm.....Buang Kok.....
Buang = Throw (in Malay)

So, when we saw this.....

Wah....Throw "Cock" Medical centre!!!!!!

But then, look closely to the left.
Buangkok is actually "man guo" i.e something like Bangkok or "man gu".
My brothers and I, albeit a bit "kampung"-like, discussed about the fact how such a weird interesting name came up and became the name of the whole area.

Anyhow, other stuff that which I experienced while in Singapore will be in pictures. I am a bad writer.

Yup, I went to Hooters in singapore with my relatives and my 9-year old nephew.

Just in case you wonder what is hooters famous for, let me give u a brief idea.
Their waitresses dress up in super mini short pants, where in certain cases you can see part of their lovely butts popping out AND that's not the only thing you'll see "popping" out.
Their waitresses also wear a white tank top, which reveals their cleavage.

Of course not ALL their waitresses have beautiful assets as those you get in a playboy magazine. But at least they are daring enough to wear the skimpy uniform, and go around serving people.
And, thankfully the waitress that served our table, had assets which were desirable ;p

Sadly enough, I didn't have the guts to take pictures of the waitresses in fear of offending their privacy. So, if you're interested in the "hooters" do google them up ;p

And to end the post, I love this picture.
It feels...nice ;p

A year older, a year wiser?

Whee~ I'm officially 22 years old today!

Other than the fact that I'm actually aging, I'm in good health! (pimples, uneven skin tone and a little excess fat around my tummy area aren't included ;p)

I celebrated my birthday again @ Jusco with my friends. I was playing around with photoshop these past few days trying to design a nicer banner for the IMU Ball, but still ended up as lost as before. So I gave up on designing a banner and decided to do something easier: combining pictures.

Being 22 makes me feel....
wiser - No

prettier - No

Dumber - A little

Older - Definitely!

I do not wish to turn back time and return to being a little girl again, especially after looking at my kindergarden's graduation picture *LOL*

Anyways, it's a little late and I've gotta go to bed soon. Though I've got tons of things to complain about, esp about the IMU Ball. For instance,

How bored + stressed + annoyed I am when I actually sit down and brainstorm for ideas of the banner.

How pissed off I am when I think about the next ball meeting *urgh*

How I wish I hadn't became a committee for the IMU Ball. *darn the 21-year old me who decided that gaining a new experience in organising a ball would be fun and benificial*

I shall sign off and head for slumberland. Late nights don't do good for my pimply skin *sigh*

Anyways, that's all for now^^

Pre- Birthday celebration

I'm officially turning 22 next Monday the 1st of December 2009.
*ahem...it's actually a small reminder to all my friends to get my presents or wishes will do, just in case you forgot it's coming soon ;p*

Anyways, my housemates were super kind to have done a pre-birthday celebration for me on Tuesday^^ It was the day where we were throwing a barbecue session in which many of our batchmates were invited for as well. So, in other words, I had no idea that they were actually going to celebrate my birthday.

It all started with me and Brendan trying to fire up the barbecue set. Initially I thought Brendan would be of much help, but in the end, I was the one who got my hands dirty and successfully started off part of the fire^^ Yes, I was so successful in starting the fire that Brendan said this,

"wenyi, you're so man~~~ " ( in mandarin) *peas went = =''

The chicken looked like this...
Looks good right? We had marinated the chicken overnight with heinz barbecue sauce, garlic, soy sauce, oyster sauce, salt and pepper.

Sadly, while we were halfway through barbecue-ing the chickens, the following happened.

Devi: They're going to fog vista.

We: *panicky* Save the chickens.
OMG, it's drizzling.

We started moving quickly to keep the chickens indoor, and since we couldn't barbecue anymore, we decided to fry the chickens. However, we received the following comments regarding the fried chicken:

It's so hard that even a dog won't eat it. *really?*
It tastes nice, but the meat is too tough. *sobs*
It feels like eating chewing gum. *sad-nye*

So, we ended up with many many half eaten chicken. It's all because the chicken meat which we purchased from Carrefour wasn't fresh. It was OLD chicken, which meat was TOUGH like hell.

SO, DON'T buy chicken meat from CARREFOUR, unless you're really sure it's a young chicken. (but how do you actually differentiate a young chicken from an old chicken? hmmmm.....)

We felt really bad, as the chicken which was intended as the main course ended up a failure. Thankfully, there were other food brought by my batchmates^^
sushi by jason kam, jason lim, chun kang and alvin.

Desserts by Jeannette, Chew Ning and Ling Wei *yummy*

Then, as I was in the midst of barbequeing some hotdogs, Shenyang a.k.a Carrots came in with my birthday cake^^
Yup, it was actually Raj's birthday. So raj's name was on the cake as well. Hehe...This is the second time I'm celebrating my birthday with Raj. It was in One U last year, and this time in Vista, and next year, it'll be in Scotland^^ Whee~~

After the "cake cutting ceremony", we had a quiz session, where both Raj and I were supposed to guess the names of my batchmates. Though I had difficulties in answering the questions, I beat Raj and won the "game". Cheers to me! LOL..

That's me, smiling stupidly during the quiz. LOL~

A group picture of all (except for chan sing, stella and dear devi)

Towards the end, Brendan, Irene and her housemates stayed back to help us out. Irene swept the floor while Brendan mopped.

Since we were ever grateful to them, I gave out a certificate to Brendan.Yup, pelajar contoh Brendan Khor Lin Yee telah dapat sijil daripada saya! Haha^^

As a wrap, thank you to all who came.
And to my housemates, Pohyee, renly, chin yeong and devi,
And to dear Carrots,

Poor Laptop

My laptop is officially dead.

Dead because it got infected by a visiting virus which was carried by my unsuspecting thumbdrive. The thumbdrive had traveled to two computers in IMU.
1. In the SRC room.
2. In the IT department.

Reason of travel: To print out stuff for the IMU Ball.

Once i plugged it in, the whole laptop started lag like hell. Next, my anti-virus program keeps popping up an alert which tells me:

"Suspicious file detected in WINDOW/system32/.......... Action to be taken: Ignore or Delete"

Obviously I deleted the file. BUT another alert popped up, telling me to restart the laptop to let it scan the system files.

That whole cycle of scanning and restarting repeat itself since yesterday afternoon till today. Thus, I decided to shut down the laptop and let my dad fix it when I get back home this weekend.

Till then, I shall be hogging Pohyee's laptop to use. ;p

Birth and Baby Steps


We all learned in sejarah lessons back in secondary school that history is actually derived from two words;

History = His + Story

Hello...how come it cannot be her story? Why must if be his? This for one, is an example for chauvinism, the male ego which can be felt everywhere one goes. Oh well, at least nature is called Mother Nature and not Father Nature. LOL....

Back to my humble beginnings (fuyoh...I make myself sound like I'm some big-shot now. Pity I'm not. LOL...)
As I was saying, back to my humble beginnings...
I'm the first child in the family. Thus, that may be the main reason why my parents or my mum in particular actually put in the effort to decorate my very own baby book.

Along with the album, were:

1. My baby hair when I was 2-months old. (Yes..they shaved my head bald and kept my hair in the album. hehe^^)

2. A page stating all my vital stats when I was born. Vital stats means my baby weight not this>>> 34-24-36 (and btw, that's my dream vital stats, not my real one ;p) LOL^^

3. A page with all my first times.

Ladies and gentlemen,

This little baby above is or more accurately was me :)
I was born at 2 pm on the 1st of December 1986 which was a Monday.
My weight as a newborn was 3kg and I had a height of 36 centimeters.

I first smiled when I was 1 and a half months old, and first laughed 6 months later when I was 2 months old. I started to crawl when I was about 7 months old and my first walk on my own, without the baby pram, on March 1988 i.e about 1 year and 4 months old.

Then on September 1988 came my twin brothers.

The picture below shows me looking very much like a little boy, along with my two chubby looking brothers in 1989.

Then in 1990, when I was almost 4 years old, I went to Thailand along with my parents.
Guess which is me?

Highlight to see the answer >> The little girl in blue, standing in front of the banner.

Fast forward a few more years, little wenyi headed off for pre-school where this picture below is most likely the first performance she did. hehe..

Can't see me?
Well, I did look a LOT different back then.
Answer: The girl right next to the indian boy. If you can't see which is the indian boy, set the lighting of ur screen, or go get ur eyes checked ;p

Little wenyi was a shy girl. Wait, I still am shy. hehe...

Little wenyi is>>> The girl with the black shoes.

Then, before she graduated from kindergarden, she did another performance.

At home, she's a cheerful little girl who loved playing with her two younger brothers.

Don't be fooled by my ahem "cute" pictures of little wenyi cause little wenyi can be fierce as well.

Once I was in primary school, I started wearing spectacles.
As you can see from the picture below, I dislike wearing specs.

Especially since the olden day sepctacles are wide framed and made me look, well, weird.

That's all for now, pictures of my primary and secondary school is scarce. It's almost like finding water in the dessert, I only have that few pictures taken *sigh*

Tuesday, November 18, 2008


I realized I haven't been blogging for quite some time. (Sorry bloggie, Peas apologises)

Anyways, this was what happened in the past week.

1. Celebrated my Mum's birthday a day earlier in Zanmai Sushi, Gardens.
(note: my hair did not fluff up that bad, it's the person sitting behind me that made my hair look like some lion's mane. hehe...

note 2: my mum's age is a secret, but I can tell you that people always say that we look like sisters. *sigh* it's a nice way of saying my mum looks young, but on the other hand, it indirectly means i look old i mean matured ;p

2. Short trip to Penang.
The girls and I headed off to penang, and were more than happy to see more familiar faces during the trip. The 9 girls loved taking pictures and this is so far the nicest picture of us all^^ (poor photographer which so happened to be the only male in the group when we visited the beach. hehe)
note: we're actually posing mid-air, can you tell what pose is it? ;p

3. Weekend without my laptop. That weekend, I ended up doing nothing much but reading the newspaper and 12 "books" or more accurately 12 mangas in malay. hehe...

Hana Yori Dango Final Movie

Hehe....I didn't know that there was actually a movie being produced for the famous japanese drama, Hana Yori Dango (Boys over flowers), until I saw the advertisement on the papers!

Well, apparently it was screened in certain countries only. But unfortunately I did not catch the movie in the cinema. Instead, I watched it online. (thanks chinyik for sharing the link^^ arigatou gozaimasu~) Click here to stream it online.

Video Quality:
The quality of the video isn't that good as it's taken from the cinema, so certain scenes get pretty dark at times. Also I couldn't get to see the face clearly at times. Hehe..but nevertheless, it's a decent watch as the audio was okay, and the subtitles were in english! LOL^^

Storyline :
Storyline was not too bad. It's a decent movie. But since I watched the drama series, I just HAD to watch the movie. LOL. Because in the drama, you didn't get to see the lead characters get married. However, in the drama you get to see doumouji and makino get married^^

Usually I don't stream videos from mysoju, I usually stream them from crunchyroll.com
They've got many anime and dramas as well. Japanese and korean dramas or movies can be streamed there. I even found Painted Skin there. [here]

I've not watched Painted skin yet. Though I heard that the graphics are extremely fake, but since it's free, why not watch? LOL ;p

Proposal Daisakusen^^

Whee... I finished another japanese drama! Peas likey~

It's called Proposal Daisakusen!

And it stars Tomohisa Yamashita^^

He's only a year older than me^^ But he's like soooo cute^^
He was in the earlier drama I watched called Nobuta wo Produce, but that time he wasn't the lead. This time around in Proposal Daisakusen, he's the lead! Meaning lots of his shots throughout the movie!!!!

It's about a guy called Iwase Ken, who is in love with his childhood best friend, Rei. Sadly Rei was about to get married to another guy, and being her best friend, he had to attend her wedding.

Halfway through the wedding, a male"fairy" appeared (yes, a MALE fairy, and he doesn't have wings and loves to eat people's food). The fairy magically grants Ken the chance to go back in time, in hopes to change his destiny. Hehe....The best part is to go back in time, the following conversation occurs:

Fairy: Ask, and you shall receive.

Ken: Hallelujah chance (while striking a cute pose with the background turning brighter with sounds of ppl singing "hallelujah")

It's just soo cute^^ *yes I know I sound like some kid, but he seriously is cute ;p*see^^ haha....and last but not least....
