tick tock ..

Man.. it's so freaky how times flies.

And I'm reminded of it all the time when I log onto MSN messenger and see my cousin's personal message.
It currently reads "208 days of 2007 has past. 157 days to 2008"

Now when he started it waaaaaay back in January, I thought he'd give up within a week because it was tedious and depressing.
Counting down the days to a whole new year when the year has just begun?

But jeebers, he stuck at it and he's still counting!

Week 2 of my final semester will begin tomorrow and it'll be officially a week since I returned to Adelaide.
It's almost as if I've never left!!
Soo Hui will return tomorrow as well so it won't be so quiet any longer.

I'm not sure of why I'm actually blogging. I think it's . . . boredom and the fact that I've been in the house the whole day, I basically finished doing what I set to do today :)
which is great and now leaves me heaps of time to think about . . . life

The weeks back in Brunei were really great.

I had a lot of fun, mainly because I was more adventurous and made a couple of new friends.
There were a lot of drama but fortunately most things had been sorted out before I left.
*dabs sweat off forehead*

I also realized how few current family pictures we had so I made my dad take us out on a family trip; any excuse to do some family camwhoring.

My bro wasn't in the pic cause he was the one taking the pic

I'm glad for the memories back in Brunei. Sure, they made me a little reluctant to come back to Adelaide but it's here where I lay the foundation and set goals for my future.

I jumped into a lot of unpredictable things this year. I've done things that even surprised myself. Some I'm not proud of but I don't regret anything.

What I have now is starting to scare me.
I don't really know where I'm heading or where my life is going.

Lately, I have been rather hesitant about jumping into dark waters and the idea of running away tempts me so.

Sometimes I really feel alone and vulnerable.
And it's actually comforting to stay this way because that would mean I wouldn't have to do something that scares the crap out of me.

But life is what you make.
So if you give crap, expect crap.

If I sit here and mop about it, I'm not better than the person who stays in the borderlines and watch everyone else cross the finish line.

I'm not entirely sure the point of blogging this. . perhaps I might find something insightful. . . or bluff myself into thinking I'm ready to take on the world.

Let's hope it's not the latter.

thumbs up, bro.. thumbs up :)

Guess what I've got....


Yes, I am well aware that I'm 20 years old but hey!!
Justin actually bought this for me from Singapore!


It's like the real thing too! There's even a website, kinda like Neopets but in a more cartoonish, kiddish feel. Think bright and colourful!

I want it to be the ninja-looking creature and I will turn it into a rock-star!!
It has infra-red so that my gotchi can interact with other gotchis!
Dun play play ok! This thing is pretty cool!

Won't someone else get one so we can have tea parties and . . . also make babies??
I know it sounds wrong cause it's a kid's toy and all..

OH DAMM! A thief popped by and stole 500 points from my tamagotchi!
*shakes angry fist*

UGH. And I wanted to save up to buy a trumpet for it so it can finally begin its journey towards becoming the ultimate tamagotchi rock star!! *sniff sniff*

Only 10 days left!

Why is it that when I want to book a room in the Changi airport hotel, it’s fully booked?!!
Am thinking of the airport hell that I’m going to endure as I wait 9 hours in transit for an 8 hour flight only to have to head to class on the day I arrive.
*waves white flag*

Man, I’ve been so super busy lately.
On Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday, I went up to the capital; our beloved Bandar Seri Begawan. . . and I may be going again this Monday for our Sultan's birthday celebration :D

We went up twice to go shopping and to meet a friend.
And once to visit the doctor.
Nothing really major, just a small lump that I found on the side of my back.
The doc says it’s probably resulted from an infection or an injury that I wasn’t aware of.

My little cousin has it worse.

The white parts of her eyes were filled with blood!!

Fortunately the doctor said that as long as the blood doesn’t get into the iris, she’ll be alright as it doesn’t hurt or affect her sight.
There’s a good chance that she’ll recover with no complications.
Actually there were about three or four kids just like her in the hospital.
O_o . . . Is this a common problem??

Isn’t she adorable? ^^

I took this photo of her while we were in Empire Hotel; the slice of paradise in Brunei.

Sometimes I forget how beautiful Brunei really is.

And on Monday I went to the dentist.
The last time I went was . . . I don’t even remember -.-

Unlike most people, I don’t hate going to the dentist, it’s just that I had no need for them.
Mom said to just go and have my teeth checked.
Because moms know best, I did.

But I must say one thing… I hate government-paid dentists!!
They’re so rough! Mom says it’s so that we’d avoid going back and they have less work to do -.-

Anyho, she cleaned my teeth but the process hurt so badly!!
My gums were all bleeding by the end of it!!!

The dentist said that I have no cavities and to come back in 6 months’ time.
I vow never to return.

One more hospital-related thing…
My grandma has been admitted into the hospital! Well, she hasn’t been very well lately…
But let’s hope she makes a speedy recovery ok!


Last night, Sharon, Ryan and I played monopoly.

But not just any monopoly game...
it’s Spongebob Squarepants themed!!

I love SpongeBob!

It was so fun that we played it TWICE.
I know. We’re insane. But it was really fun!! :D

Let’s end this entry with Seng Kheng and his painted pinky.

If only someone else will let me paint their fingernails :(

And a picture of yu cha kueh!! It tastes as good as it looks! :D

Turns out that the thing's been disconnected inside.
We have no idea how that happened.

But who cares?! *boogies* =D

Will roast to death here

I’m FINALLY in Brunei.

Gawd. I thought I was going to pass out from the lack of sleep in the airport and they’d have to drag my dead body home to Brunei.


Okay, okay, I may be exaggerating a bit but I was seriously tired.
I had a wild party on Thursday night. Like a super wild party.
So wild that I don’t think I should even blog about it.

I can only say that despite the wildness, I never had so much fun =D
Before my heels started killing me.

Moving on!I didn’t have much sleep the night before my flight, I was still packing at 5 in the morning.

So I was dead tired.

I tried sleeping on the flight to Singapore but there was this little boy beside me who just can’t seem to stop talking -.-

When I arrived in Singapore, Cheryl happened to be there too! She was sending her cousin brother off and urged me to meet up with her.

Now, I’ve only chatted with Cheryl over the internet and only twice on the phone but I consider her a good friend of mine, just like Yenny. The three of us talked about meeting each other so many times that it’s not even funny.

Cheryl was there with her parents and they even offered to take me home.

So nice!

But I couldn’t. It was sooooooooo tempting (Cheryl, I know you will want to slap me when you read this) but I just couldn’t. I don’t deserve such treatment from people I hardly know, you know?

Cheryl wanted to camwhore with me so bad. HAHAHAHA!

Here are a couple of pics that we managed to snap. We didn’t want her parents to think that we were camwhores or anything but I think in the end, they probably figured that we are.

Isn't she adorable? I wanted to pinch her so badly!
But I refrained myself :D

The airport hotel was fully booked so I had to roam around the airport, trying to find nice spots to sleep (while hugging my laptop to death).

After spending over 12 hours in the airport, I was ready to go insane from the lack of sleep. Plus they delayed my flight back to Brunei for an hour and a half due to some missing luggage.

When I finally got out of the airport, I was looking for my best friend who was supposed to pick me up.
It wasn’t too hard to find them.

Because her boyfriend was holding a sign.

I KNOW!! SO EMBARRASSING!!! HAHahahahahahahhaaaaaaaa!!

And do you know what’s worst?!

She actually wanted to hold up this sign instead!!

She said that when she made the sign, her friends questioned her sanity. I do sometimes too.
But she said that she knew it’d make me laugh.
And it did :)

We haven't chatted in months so there wasn't even a minute of silence. As we got into her car, her boyfriend commented, “You two are made for each other.”

So funny!!

Okay, maybe you might not find it so funny but who cares what you think? :P

Oh!! Yenny posted something for me from Korea!! :D

Guess what’s in the pretty box?


Lol! Well, I wish. *cough*

It’s the chocolate-coated biscuit sticks that TVXQ were advertising!
And the rest of the stuff inside are 6 chewing gum packets of different flavours; mangosteen, strawberry, coffee, etc!

I love my twinno!! ^O^
