My New Baby

It has been a busy month – with Christmas & Birthday all in December, planning of CNY trip next year and etc. Work has also been piling up with new expectation by the year of 2007.

Anyway, I have finally gotten my Oakley as my birthday present. That’s why I was excited. :D.

I have been walking around and around with EG to find a model that fits my face. My typical Asian face gave me a real hard time to find one that fits my face well. Most of the glasses are hanging halfway on my face as my nose bridge is not tall enough, and my face is too small. Besides, I am quite fussy in the design, frames, lenses and color. For the price that we are going to pay, I want it to be all in one - practical + fashionable. I almost gave up but EG kept pasturing me to keep choosing. He’ll keep an eye on all optical shops with Oakley rack and forced me in to try all sorts of models.

Until, finally, EG saw Oakley Dart in Oakley’s website.

So, I, again, went to try at a few places to check out the price and discounts. They’ll always tell you Oakley is a controlled price item and they can only give you 10% discount. Finally, after all the hiccups and all the hoo-ha, we finally went down all the way to Perangin Mall to get Oakley Dart Berry/G40 Black Gradient after work on one fine day, from the same shop where EG got his Splice – his birthday present, hoping that the my Dart has not found its owner yet.

The best thing is, this model comes together with its casing, especially for women. I love the casing to bits, it looks so elegant, although it’s a bit big for me to carry around.

I have been wearing this all around – hoping that it's sunny when I am outdoor. It’s cool. Very solid. Great coverage. Color is very good. I don't get headache anymore when it's sunny. I just can’t wait to wear it for my CNY trip with my family to Shanghai. I shall post more pictures after the trip.

Alright, enough about Oakley. Before the clock ticks 12 midnight today, I wish all my dearest friends a very happy new year. I hope year 2007 will bring good lucks to all of you and may all of you stay healthy, pretty & handsome, and happy always. Muahhh…

I am excited

I am excited today.

My heart is pounding faster and harder. I can't wait to leave office today. I can't hide my excitement. I am... just excited.

You must be wondering, why?

Is it...
Because holiday is coming? No....
Something good happened? Not really....
I got lottery? Neh.....
EG going to propose? Maybe
next life....
Because my birthday is coming? Hmm... Maybe....

Since young I have trained myself not to have too high expectation on everything as the more you expect, the more disappointment you'll get at the end when things go wrong.

But this time, I hope there won't be any disappointment.

So, you're eager to know why I am excited today?

Hehehe.. Not going to tell you today! *Blek*. :P

The Good Old Days

I was cleaning up my old stuff that I brought with me from KL last weekend. EG was telling me to throw away things if I don’t need them anymore. Well, he always thinks I keep rubbish. *blek*

I was going through my CD folders and the old CDs that I burned in Uni. I saw pieces and pieces of colored CD-Rs with title “My MP3”, “My MP3 (English)” and etc. It brought my mind back to the Uni time.

MMU is a University in the middle of no way that provides LAN and free internet to all their students. For us who stayed in the hostel, we really fully utilized it, and fully enjoyed it – downloaded albums, movies, mp3, and a lot others from the net, or other’s sites. For the guys, they took almost 70% of the bandwidth for LAN games (What else?!). And the most common things that we did was online chatting.

I missed those days, very much indeed.

Few days before, I was helping my friend to type out some proposals for church activities. He commented that I type very fast. I thought it’s very normal. Why? It was because in hostel, we chatted throughout the days and nights. It was our main communication tool to save our phone bills! I remembered my record was 7 yahoo messenger chat boxes on my computer screen at the same time. My fingers just flew over the keyboard and kept typing and typing for the whole night. Not to mention the blinking ICQ icon at the bottom right of the task bar. I even chatted with my lovely roommate even though we’re less than 2m away!! Talking about my piggy roommate, she can type with 2 fingers and she’s faster than anyone else. I wonder if she still types with 2 fingers now. :P

Those were the days. Crazy days.

Those were the days when we woke up, the first thing that we did was to on the computer before we went to the toilet to do the rest. When we’re back from the toilet, the lovely computer would then be loaded with all the messengers like yahoo, ICQ, and everything else online.

We have graduated since Uni for almost 5 years. All the memories still bring a big smile to my face. Those were the days when everything is sweet, and funny. Those were the days where you can find the purest and most sincere friendship.

I remembered how we had the birthday bash for Shizuka at the playground. I still remembered how cruel we were since we know she can’t run (she still can’t!). When all of us were running after her with flour and eggs, she squatted down and said: “Jiu Ming ar… (Help in mandarin)”, but her all good friends showed no mercy and the next thing she knew was, at least 10 eggs and X packets of flour just poured onto her head. Her poor roommates had to help to take out the flour + eggs on her hair for the whole night (till 5am?). She got to wash her hair for 3 times if I am not mistaken. That was the best birthday bash! We also gave her the most unique birthday present – a book of wishing cards. I hope she still kept it.

I remembered Piggy and I always played the MP3 in the room. And we always sing in the room. Then, she’ll always give me a Garfield look (she’s GOOD!) and tell me don’t sing with my 45 degrees eyebrows. That’s just hilarious when I think about it now.

Before we went for the prom night, Papa, Valerie and me had to dance Para-Para Sakura every evening in the room to keep ourselves fit! Me and Papa would also walk around the campus (had no stamina to jog!) to lose some weight. Sometimes the guys drove pass and saw us, they honked loudly at us. And we both will shyly try very hard to hide our faces away from them.

There’re just lots and lots of stories – in Library, in Lecture hall, in Tutorial, during dinner and etc etc. EG and I sometimes just can’t stop talking about it and keep laughing for the whole day esp. when we tried to imitate how other people, such as Soo, acted.

And I wonder if anyone still remembers the Lady in Red story. I found the old emails while browsing my yahoo mailbox. We were discussing on how we’re going for the graduation in Malacca in 2003. I remembered I just laughed out loud when I read the email while I was working in Vietnam even though I was the victim. And guess who wrote that email!

Once a upon a time, in a land called MMU; there was a princess called Winnie. One night she was hungry and had this urge to go eat supper. Usually during weekends in MMU there aren't many people around so she kinda ran out of options.

So happened her good friend Prince Ah Bi who messaged her on Yahoo!; and after some initial ehem** u know crocking :) he asked her out for supper cos he has not eaten dinner and was awfully hungry. What a coincidence. Arrangements were made and Prince AH bi was to pick her up at HB3.

So, our Princess Winnie dresses herself up putting on those little cute red slippers which would guranteee to get attention even though it was in the night. Having done that she walks to the placed agreed upon earlier and waits.

Guess who actually came to meet her; it was EuGeen, Bruce and AH Long. Turns out its was just a prank eg pulled off. Man was the princess furious; well this is an old story that somehow was missed in our numerous storytelling sessions. So this is how the title lady in red was made up. I bet it would've been a really sweet supper session if it was actually Prince Ah bi that picked her up. But thats another story... if I remember which is called Prince Ah bi and Princes Winnie goes to Penang.

ahhh... the wonders of internet chatting. So much for the red slippers

Those were the days! The good old days!

An Unhappy Happy Person

I wonder how many of my friends actually see me in my unhappy moments. Maybe those that who're really close to me did.

I can be quite emotional, with no reason. Well, that's a girl's privilege.

My mood today is just BAD. Real bad.

I can talk a lot. But when my mood is bad, I'll be very quiet. Just like today, I didn't speak a word to anyone around me. I am just very transparent.

I am drowned by my own expectations. I am stressed. I am feeling helpless. I am frustrated. I am depressed. And I just think everything is not right. Things are not going as what I wanted them to be. *Sigh*.....

Instead of making myself feel even worse, I chose to do nothing but just watch TV. I ate maggie, and egg tart, and chocolate, and whatever things that are unhealthy that I can find to fill my stomach. Then, I feel better.

How stupid, right?

Why? I don't know. Maybe it's PMS. Another girl's excuse to be emotional.

D*mn. I should go sleep now.

My First Dish in PG

My first cooking in PG! Looks nice right? *Shy* *shy*...

Ok, this is not the official first cooking after I came penang. I did hard boiled eggs, half boiled eggs, or even 3/4 boiled eggs & toast bread for breakfast (Yum Yum). I did mee kolok (means dried mee with soy sauce/pepper/oil) for dinner also. I also did Microwave Potato Chips. *wink*.

I finally officiated the "opening" of the Vision Frying Pan that we bought form Langkawi two months ago. The pan was, sadly, hiding in the kitchen cabinet and probably playing with some lizards.

Comment from EG? As usual, he won't give too much compliment. "Ok la... not bad..." and next he inspected the whole kitchen to check if it's oily after the frying....! Grrrr.....

Oh, by the way, in case you guys can't recognise what the food is... it's just fried eggs with sausages. *wink*.

Realise it or not, we're facing choices in our life, everyday, on everything.

Some said, it's better with more choices - I guess, that applies to shopping malls most of the time. However, when a shopping mall has TOO MANY choices, then all the guys will get headache as they'll need to walk longer with their girlfriends as they'll take longer to choose their dresses/clothes/what-so-ever.

Some of the example of choices that I have made (or still trying to make):
  • To buy Wira or Satria?
  • To stay at USJ or move to Sri Kembangan?
  • To work for money or work for interest?
  • To move to PG or stay in KL?
  • To follow my heart (emotional) or follow my head (rational)?
  • To cut my hair short? Or to keep it long? Straighten it? Or curl it?
  • To go Gua Tempurung and come back with cuts all around or stay in office and just enjoy the air-cond?
  • To always please people around me or just make myself happy?
  • Which country should I go during CNY with my family? China or Taiwan?
  • To be a miser or be fashionable?
  • Which sunglasses worth the $$ the best?
If there's only Mc Donald, I don't even need to choose whether I should go KFC or Pizza Hut. If there's only Guardian, I don't even need to check the price @ Watson as well to make sure I got the best deal. I guess, it doesn't apply to all. Life is never so simple.

Sometimes, we'll take quite some time to make a choice. Reason? Because everyone wants to make sure that they make the right choice with the best deal. Or another word - Kiasu (scared to lose).

For me, I'll just think that more choices just make life harder....

If I give you a choice, will you choose a simple but boring life, or another interesting life with all sorts of complicated things bothering you at all days? Can you choose?

Can you? Can you?
