SATURDAY NIGHT AND NOWHERE TO GO :(
Its times like these when i wish i had a car...i could go out with my friends, just for a drive...no need for plans and see where the night takes us...*sigh* i'm so bored... i just recently put up Misha Omar's Bunga-Bunga Cinta on my blog...i rarely get attracted to a non-english song but when i do, it's usually a ballad-y type of song (like Siti Nurhaliza's Bukan Cinta Biasa)...if its Chinese, it would usually be from someone famous...like REALLY famous like Jacky Cheung (old-timer!) which reminds me abt a song i loved in my sec. school days...Cinta Di Akhir Garisan by N.Baizura, Dessy Fitri, Nora and Z. Zain...lawa the lagu...and when that group did it...erm...i forgot their name..some lousy UK girl group...they did an English version and i HATED it! Honeyz! That's it! GRRRRR!!!!
At the moment, besides Misha's song, i've dug up some old cds and have been listening to Bravo All Stars' Let the Music Heal Your Soul...that song is like one of those songs that you can feel the lurrrvvvveeee bay-bee ;) Like...Heal the World...or We Are The World...or that one they did for AIDS victims...the song that starts with "father, father...." i can't remember...i LOVE collabs...its very touching to see so many ppl get together just to sing a song that's worth something...Even when they sang Selamat Datang(SEA Games '99)... i could feel my hairs stand on end. What can i say...I'm a sucker for unity ;) That is however one of the many songs that has meant something to me...its like...it made me so proud of my country and that we could do stuff like that on such a big scale...i still wish i had a part in the Games but Form 5 laa...wat to do? I feel the same for my school (SAS) maybe coz i was there 12 years of my life...so many memories...i don't feel that way abt MD maybe coz i was only there for 2 years..i dunno...govt schools, i feel, aren't like private schools...we spoke English in SAS, even the Malays...in MD i was forced to converse in BM...me speaking to malays in SAS in malay was very rare and whenever i did i was always met with surprised comments...they were prolly thinking why this anak cina can speak malay in a brunei malay accent hahaha...
also kan...in SAS...sports were as impt as academics...everyone in the school was (and still is) very supportive of their respective houses...you diss us and they'd be hell to pay...some of the older kids would get into fights just coz someone made some degratory comment abt their house...serious man...but then, that was my seniors...by the time we were at the top of the school , we did not have childish spats like those in the past...
Boy: Hollis sucks man
Boy from Hollis: What the @$#^?! You @#%$%$*!
*wham* *pow* *biff* *thud*
we were very civilised ;) i was from Cornwall (Blue house)...Hollis (Red) and Cornwall always had some kinda thing going on and were rarely on good terms...Danson (Yellow) were the peace keepers and Macdougall(Green) were sports freaks hahaha..Macdoug were always good in badminton and field events, Cornwall in basketball and track, Hollis tug-of-war (they all so BIG!) and Danson were good in track too...Cornwall also good in academics ;) kambang sikit...we had a lot of nerds and then jocks too (esp Chinese guys who only play bball and run 100m/200m) LOL...when i went to teach in SAS before i masuk UBD, they put me in Macdoug (nooo!!!) hahaha...teachers also get placed in houses btw...i was a traitor lah hahaha and then last year when i went back for a month plus i told the sports master i was in Cornwall the previous year i taught so he let me be in Cornwall hahaha tipuuuu!!! :) i'm terrible :)
hey you still reading this? wow! thanks for actually reading this :) i thot this would be a short blog but i guess not...anyway thanks for the support and interest in my blogs..although at times i know i can just really carry on :)
NO PRACTICAL NEXT SATURDAY YAHOOOO!!!! NO CLASSES MONDAY YAHOOOO!!!! happy holidays all...Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha to all my muslim friends :) byeeeeeeeee

FEELING HEALTHY :)
just came home a few minutes ago after having thai food for dinner... yum...today was a pretty ok day...we had a bio prac in the morning... that was quite fun as we had to do statistical problems on the comp...something different...the UBD computers are a pain. They basically just suck and i dunno why no one does anything to improve the condition of the service. But anyhoo, back to my day...after the prac we had a bit of time for lunch, then english which was kinda fun...a microbio lecture (killed my right hand) and then to the lab to tie up some loose ends of a microbio prac...fungi and bacteria ahhh!!! *puts on hazmat suit* wahaha! broke a glass slide by heating it too long which was coooool coz that has never happen to me before LOL...then suzi, rash and i went to play squash at the gym...for abt 45 mins? and then jogged three rounds (kind of!) around the track and played some bball...was teaching them how to play half-court, how to dribble and shoot and stuff...very funneeeee :) met an old fren i haven't seen since form 5 in the thai restaurant...:)
oh, does anyone know any other site that provides music codes for sites? the one im using...msealsmusic and the previous one i used powerwebmusic...it doesn't have the song i want...bob carlisle "Butterfly kisses"...such a sweet song...so yeah...if you know of any pls let me know....thankooo :) okie gtg shower :) byeeeee

GONG XI FA CAI!!
phew...finally a time to myself :) Happy Chinese New Year to all! To all those who came over yesterday, thanks for coming, although you kinda overwhelmed my family by your enormous number LOL! Everyone i invited (and a whole lot more!) came except for ONE...sorry, not forgiven :) yesterday was hectic...the moment i came home, i flew upstairs to freshen up and came running down to help with the guests...i think we had close to 200 guests over yesterday...this by the fact that 400 sticks of satay disappeared haha the last person left at 10pm (altho they didnt get any makan) :)
i still have four reports pending and the thought of them totally drains me...eurgh...today if i can, i might go play ball...we have a friendly today against the MS girls but the thing is i haven't played in ages AND my reeboks are going croc on me(ie flapping soles)...if you've seen my shoes you'd know i had them superglued...rach knows...she's seen them pathetic things :) i need new shoes...sponsors anyone? teehee...i'm not much of a nike girl altho i wouldn't mind it if my dad bought 'em for me...but i'm used to reebok (altho everyone tells me its CRAP) i prefer nike clothes tho except they cost so much for something so....so....plain? i dunno...
i should cut my nails...(random!)
i made a bday card for monne two days ago..it was a rushed thing but she liked it...i'm glad you like it daleng...sorry it isn't hallmark but hey...it IS an original, one of a kind ;) okie i should get some reports done....bye all...have a prosperous, happy and blessed new year!! Gong Hei Fatt Choi!!

If you haven't read Monne's post on 12th Jan click this
and you'll know what i mean by evil ideas...monday was the first day back after a month long holiday...looks like my mondays will be packed from now til the end of semester...it was good to see all my friends again :) back together after a long break...it's good :) we refused to eat lunch at the canteen on our first day back so we went out for nasi katok...monne, dayah, nur, naveena and i went with hadi in his car (which has an eardrum-busting, heart-thumping, head-banging sound system) :) hadi has this mobile walkie talkie thingy in his car...shah who was in the other car had the other...a thought came to mind on the way to lunch...after lunch, the thought had fermented and i figured why not...so i told the others in the car that we were gonna play a trick on the others...we were gonna fake that something terrible had happened in the car...we would carry on as normal talking thru the walkie talkie, and then on my cue, we would begin screaming and yellling as if we had just langgar something or got into an accident...it went as planned except for one thing...the ppl in the other car didnt get it...pfffttt...wasted my screams hahahah...then hadi took over and pretended he had a flat and asked the other car (driven by zul) to slow down...and they did...and hadi zoomed past them...lagi tah jahat :)
yesterday was a looong day...i had a five hour prac that lasted til one...my dad only came at 3 and then i had a meeting at FCTS at 7-830 and then went to the bank (baiduri at supasave, beribi) and then finally dinner....at 930...
waaahhhh....so ngaleh...by the time i got home it was close to 1030...

two days ago i went to the gym with rach and chien....had fun...something funny happened...i saw a friend i haven't seen in ages...the funny thing was that we had talked on the phone the previous evening and he mentioned something abt seeing me in gadong and that i seemed to have put on weight (i can't deny the undeniable) :) so i told him i was upset and would be very rajin and go to the gym everyday from that day onwards...and ngam ngam i saw him at the gym the next day! he was kinda worried coz he thought his comments had hurt my feelings and made me go to the gym but i reassured him it wasn't...i had planned to go to the gym for ages anyway...it was a good workout....after that we kinda ruined it by going down to the bakery and getting something to munch on hahaha
the next day (yesterday) they wanted to go again...but i figured i won't put my body thru so much stress :) so today rach says we'll go to the gym...and there we were in a BIG dilemma...waffles and ice cream BEFORE or AFTER gym hmmmm....LOL...coz she won't have anymore time after today (she's leaving on sunday) and we HAD to perform our honoured tradition (LOL)...so we decided on waffles first...gym after...BAD CHOICE...by the time we were done at tau, we were too tired, stuffed and lazy to work out hahahah...which goes to show, eating first before gym is not a good idea...now we know...eat AFTER gym hahaha! hey, at least we get to work out first BEFORE we pig out :) after we got home, i played a little one-on-one basketball with chien...he still beat me despite him not playing in ages...then again, i'm crappy anyway! ;p one day, chien....one day.... *evil grin*
alright, i'm off to do some stuff...uni starts on monday...looking forward to it...miss my friends...to rach who's leaving on sunday...i will miss you...you take care...when you come back hopefully during Easter break, we go for w n ic again k? :) <3
heehee...nite all! *hugs*

There's a song that's inside of my soul
It's the one that I've tried to write over and over again
I'm awake in the infinite cold
But You sing to me over, and over and over again
So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only Yours, I pray
To be only Yours I know now
You're my only hope
Sing to me the songs of the stars
Of your galaxy dancing, and laughing and laughing again
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that You have for me over again
So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours, I pray
To be only yours I know now
You're my only hope
I give You my destiny
I'm giving You all of me
I want Your symphony
Singing in all that i am
At the top of my lungs
I'm giving it back...
I don't really like Mandy, but this song from A Walk To Remember is beautiful...
Uni starts in six days...looking forward to seeing my friends again, although the feelings i used to have in sec school, the exictement i would get starting a new year, being in a new classroom, a year of new things...i don't get that now...and i miss that feeling...even waking up on the first day of school and putting on my uniform was exciting...heck, somtimes i couldn't sleep the night before! :) i like new things...you know, new books, new pens, new shoes...makes me feel like i'm starting fresh...and that the previous years are the past, and i'm starting a new year, making some more new history that I will remember when the year is over, and in the years to come...i miss secondary school :) Uni life no doubt is fun...but it's also...monotonous...we're all too grown up to have fun (not the kind of fun we had in school), no time for games and teasing and bickering and noise-making...have to be serious and be mature, young adults :) I miss my childhood/ teenage years...i feel OLD! hahaha...like one of those trees that live for a hundred years...man, i'm only 21 and already i feel this way...imagine when i'm...31! hahaha! But that's life...and if you just take the time to sit back and reflect on the past...you will see that although life may be hard, and we've been hurt before...life truly is beautiful :) Thank you to all my family and my friends for making my life, and my world a whole lot more beautiful for me...
I'll go now before the sniffling starts and the hankies and tissues come out *wink* Love ya!
