Post-Christmas Sales

WOOOOOO!!!

There's a mad-cap shopping buzz all over Australia. (As well as the rest of the world)
Post-Christmas Shopping!! WOOO!!

I went shopping on Christmas eve and on the 27th, 28th and 29th! (I would go on Boxing Day as well but unfortunately I live in Adelaide and most shops were closed. MEH. )

And I went shopping today too! :D
I must sound like a crazed shopaholic.. but who am I to deny this?

However, I'm a rather cautious spender despite getting all glaze-eyed whenever I see a bargain. It's because I am unemployed at the moment. Boo.

But anyway, I don't really like the style of clothes here and I find the shoes rather boring so it's not often something catches my eye. Sigh.

So I've bought things that I've been wanting to get and managed to snag a couple of items on sale.


The best bargain I grabbed was a FCUK cap for only $10!

A cute vest for $15 (or was it $10?)
An adorable jewelry box for $4.95



Two pairs of black leggings for $8.99

A gorgeous eyeshadow palette for $4.95I love white eyeshadows; they are so awesome to brighten and open up your eyes.


It seems like quite a fair number of items but for 5 whole days of shopping, it's pretty pathetic.
I'm quite disappointed that I didn't manage to score some hot new heels.

But I'm glad I didn't splurge too much this holiday season *prances*
Though, the same cannot be said for the amount of food I've been indulging on *pats happy tummy*

Merry Christmas

Weather forecast: 32 degrees with possible late showers

MEH.

Still, didn't stop me from having a nice Christmas picnic down at the park!! :)




A simple picnic of sushi (!!), cherries, dips and cheese! :D



I'm currently addicted to honey lime drinks! :)


Why sushi? Well, they're so easy to make and they look so good!

Octopus-dogs (Vegetarian) having a brawl.





At first we were feeding the ducks but this swan suddenly appeared


And then its babies came!! Baby swans!!

Me trying to feed them by hand.
Screamed and threw it at at them instead.
FAIL.


As cute as they are, they sure can eat.
They finished all our crackers (T_T)


Anyway, hope you all had a great Christmas! ^^
Have a great new year too!

Bling bling balls

I'm not a christian but Christmas is one of the best holidays ever!

I remember decorating christmas trees as a young child when we lived with a christian family.
We were made to write to Santa once. I wrote, that because I've been such an awfully good girl, I should get a Barbie doll, a collection of her clothes, a Barbie doll house AND a red Barbie car for her to cruise around in.
We were all greedy when we were kids, okay? (=_=)
I was pretty disappointed when I only received a Barbie doll and a separate Princess Barbie outfit. I thought Santa was a big cheat then.

After that, we were not made to write to Santa anymore.
Lol.


Anyway, this year for christmas, Josh wanted to get a tree!


It's actually pretty tall. A total of 180cm in height.



Kyaah! Look at the pretty ornaments!! (*.*)



We also got a can of fake snow and sprayed it all over the tree.


Very pretty, no?



TA-DA!!


The photo here really doesn't do it justice!
I'm really happy with the results (as I have awesome decorating skills).
Hehee!

Blinky the three eyed fish

One of the things on my overdue list of 'things to do' was to get my eyes checked.
For the past several months, I was straining my right eye whenever I wore my contacts. At the end of the day, my eyes would hurt and I'd get pretty woozy.

Not good.


So I made a point to book an appointment right after I completed Honours. I went around and found that on average, it costs $60 to do an eye-test and additional $60 for a contact lens test.

Anyway, the optometrist that I wanted to see wasn't in so he called me the next day and we had a small chat. Apparently, the contact lens I was using contained 38% water content, which is low and is NOT ideal for the eyes! The water content is important to ensure more oxygen can enter the eyes to ensure healthy eyes.

Imagine that! I've been using these 'low water content' lenses for the past 6 - 7 years. Sigh.
Why have all the other optometrists fail to tell me this? I know this partly my fault, due to my own ignorance but all those years and not a word of warning that lenses could be damaging my eyes?! ARGH!

Anyho, the next day I went in and met Dr. Simpson. We discovered that the contact lenses I was using were too loose for my eyes, in the sense that, whenever I turn my gaze from one direction to another my lenses took a while to follow, thus my vision is impaired for a split second or two. This was problematic as it is an additional strain to the eyes.

I also learn that when I blink, my eyelids cover only 80% of my eyes before they retract. This means that only 80% of my contact lenses are "cleaned" whenever I blink. I also learnt that I am likley to be 'left-eye dominant'; my left eye plays a larger role in vision. Alright, you may not find it so interesting but I sure did.

Dr. Simpson was great. He was patient and understanding. Plus he only charged me a consulation free of $30. Awesomous! Now I've got new lenses that fit well and I see so much better. I really have to start taking good care of my eyes. Afterall, I've only got one pair :)




Blinky.

Old men and food



So I was walking along, enjoying the sounds pumping from my mp3 player when I spotted this old man with a receeding hairline and white hair, outside of his barber shop.

He was looking up at a threatening gray sky but as I approached him, he noticed me.
He bid me good day with a slow smile. "Come, come," he mumbled as he beckoned me to follow him.

Puzzled, I stopped and watched him enter his barber shop and fumbled for something on a desk near the door. At one point, I was beginning to worry. Was he going to stab me? (There have been recent three cases of stabbing going on in Adelaide, so you should forgive me for thinking that.)

With a big smile, he pulled out a massive bundle of what looked like baby apricots?!!



Eh? (O__o)


I was horrified as he shoved them to me, "Take, take!"

"No, I can't that's too much!" I said, thinking about how I was going to go shopping with all these fruit in my hands. There wasn't even a bag!

He nodded and started peeling away the branches and leaves, "Take, take."


-___________-

So I thanked him and went my way, trying not to drop any from my two hands.
Unfortunately, I have no idea what they are (or if they are edible for that matter) or how I was going shopping.

So I threw them away in the end.
I don't mean to be disrespectful but I had to go shopping and carrying some books back home. There was just no way I could do that with them fruits in me hands.



I just wonder why I encounter such things?
Probably a year ago, this old man handed me a pumpkin.
It ended up in my tummy :)

Perhaps I look starved?

It is done.


It's all over.
Done.

Surprisingly the seminar I had to give yesterday went well :)
I am extremely relieved. (Despite not being able to answer some questions correctly and getting flustered for a bit)

Locky and I had a practice run on Monday in front of the other lab members and our supervisors.
Unfortunately, I didn't do really well that day, particularly with the questions so you can't blame me for being extremely anxious the whole day and not being able to sleep well. It was haunting me! In addition, Dr. John Hayball (our Honours course coordinator) insisted that we arrived by 8.15am to load our talks into the computer so I had a mere three hours of restless sleep before the presentation.

It was great to see everyone again, although we were all feeling a bit sick and anxious.
Well, at least I was. I tried to eat a banana, which I usually devour (Love banananaaas! Happy fruit/herb) but I had no appetite. It tasted terrible but I had to eat something or my brain will be deprived of sugaaaaar.

Fortunately I was the first to present at 9am :)
The academic staff turnup was quite poor. There were several students coming and out, families as naturally, lab members for support as well as examiners who were there to question us and grade our presentation. I think at least 30 people attended my seminar.

While I was presenting, Andrew (my supervisor) kept nodding encouragingly at me which was great but sometimes distracted me a wee bit. Hehe.
Surprisingly, 20 minutes went by really quickly.

Fortunately for me, my examiners (this chick with a British accent and a chinese man) were really nice to me. They didn't probe me or ask any tricky questions. Other audience members asked uncomplicated questions as well. So yay for me!

Some examiners were a little mean as they persistantly asked difficult questions. Most of us managed to answer questions well, so it was all good. It wasn't like our examiners were out to get us or anything. But it's often hard to think that way, especially when you're put on the spot light. For me, it was a horrid 10 minutes of vulnerability.

In all, everyone's talk went well. One of my examiners sought Hayball to ask for my contact details. Turns out, he's interested in taking me in as a PhD student.
This to me, was a surprise. Flattering but unexpected.

Hayball thinks I should consider it. Long said I should go for it.
And my supervisor Andrew said I shouldn't.
We both know how difficult Honours was for me. I struggled.
To be honest, I don't think I've got what it takes to do the same thing for three/four years.

Andrew advised me to take a year off and if I wanted to do a PhD, he would be more than happy to take me under his wing. He's awesooome, isn't he?
I'm truly thankful for the wonderful people I've worked with. The people in the lab were a bunch of supportive, intelligent and genuinely lovely people.
After our seminars, they took us to the pub to toast us. And we're going to have a lunch gathering on Thursday as well to celebrate.


I can't believe a year just went by. The past several months were just emotionally draining.
There were days when I felt like I couldn't go on. I cried endlessly. I panicked every couple hours. Conjuring sentences took me ages, making me feel it was almost impossible to complete my writing. It was not a pretty sight.

But I've done it.
It's all over.

It's time to move on to the next phase of my life!



PS: I may be getting a bunneh!! Hehee!! :D

Butterflies



In less than a month, I will have written a thesis.

A thesis that will be read and graded by individuals who expertise in the field of bone cancer.
I will be required to present my work in a seminar in front of an audience consisting of academic staff, my examiners, professors and students.

My work will be bound into a book and copies stored away into the library of my university.
Whether it'll be worth a First-Class or not.. by one way or another it will happen.

I cannot express the amount of pressure, anxiety and stress that has plagued me for the past month and continues to do so.
I lack quality sleep due to the constant nightmares and vivid dreams.

Time just slips by my fingers, making it feel like it will be an eternity before my thesis writing is complete.


I complain and lament about the amount of work. But mostly because I lack a lot of things.
The lack of sleep. The lack of determination. The lack of confidence in myself. The lack of the social life that I love and dearly miss.

And when I think to myself, everyone lacks something. Each and everyone of us use it as an excuse.

Sure, I don't interact with people as much as I used to.
So now, I am unhappy and can't write as well.
Boo Hoo.
But does it make a difference if I do? Or is it just as an excuse because I am afraid of reality?

I am aware that certain things that greatly affects the outcome, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem. Just like the "butterfly effect".
But surely, there must be ways to overcome the battle you're facing?
Perhaps it's not as bad as you think it is.
It's all about perception.


So I've got to think positively and know that I will get through this.
Because I AM capable of doing so.

Wish me luck!

Goodbye Old, Hello New



Meet my new toy..






It's so shiny *o*



Unfortunately I wasn't excited about the laptop as I thought I would be.
Maybe it's because I lost something dear to me.

Good bye me old laptop. It was a tough battle for you.
Trojan viruses are a force to be reckoned with.
Unfortunately, the scars from the battle are too much for you.

The only way to save you is to make you forget the pain.
And forget all the fond memories we shared together.
It'll take more than a shiny, pretty laptop to replace you.

Sniffles.

Eek!

My laptop has been infected by SIX trojan viruses!
ARGHHHH!

Harvey Norman's having a sale and the pretty decent laptop (Compaq Presario C791VU) is up for grabs at only $695 (after cashback)!

I eagerly checked the reviews online and found an even better laptop at around the same price:

The Dell Inspiron 1525 at ~ $699!


Look at all the pretty colours that it comes in!

*O*

and 'chill' (white-blue with wave designs).

Now I'm seriously contemplating on getting one!
I think I'll go for the 'Chill' :)
.... But blossom is beautiful as well!


Sigh. This is too difficult! >=(
And I don't know how to use Vista. Is it very different from Windows XP?
PS: I'm getting a bit sick of my blog template! The width of the blog entry section is too small!

Peek-a-boo

Mobile charms never last with me.
They either break or escape me.
>=(
But the mobile charm my older brother handed to me as a gift lasted for quite a while now.
Maybe even almost a year or so! It's a 'Me to You' Bear which I think are overrated but I am not one to complain when they are presents!
Anyway, a couple months ago, I reached out into my pocket and found...
that it was GONE!
I was really disappointed. All that was left was a tiny little bell.
Sigh.
Then, one fine winter morning, I grabbed my warmest jacket and stuck my hands into the pockets to keep them from the cold.
And I pulled out this!
Because it has its fist to its mouth, it looked as if it was going, "Opps! You found me!"
Anyho, I was relieved and attached him back on.

The scary thing is that not too long ago, he disappeared on me again!
And...
A week later, I found it in the pocket of my jeans while I was doing the washing.
O__o
It's almost as if it's playing hide-and-seek with me.
.
.
.
On a side note! My title for this entry reminds me of an old favourite joke of mine!
Sharon hates it though and can't understand why I love it so much! xD
.
.
Q: Why shouldn't you change in front of a pokemon?
.
.
.
.
.
.
.

A: Because it would pik-a-chu (peek-at-you)
.

BUAHEOARJAEORJHAHAHAHAHA!

Why is you not laughing? Not funneh? (.__.)

You gives me bunneh?


I apologize for the lack of updates.


I was preoccupied with a lab presentation Andrew wanted me to present in front of the other staff members.

He basically wanted me to present all the data I've obtained from my time in the lab.

And I have a mind-boggling 54 slides!

I've done craploads of experiments so I've got tons of data to show for!


Anyway, I've been stressing about the presentation for almost 2 weeks and lost a lot of sleep because of it.

Fortunately, everyone was impressed with the amount of data I've generated.

Go me! *prances*


Unfortunately, there are still more to come. We're only half done!

And my thesis is due in less than 2 months!!

ARGH!!


I'm looking forward to more restless nights.

pfft..



Anyho!

Both Will and Amanda bought a pair of baby bunnies!

Uber cuteness!





I am so tempted to get one. But I MUST NOT!

With cuteness comes responsibility! >=(
These things require constant care, attention and someone to clean up after their doo-doo.
Perhaps I'll get one or a boring fish after Honours? :]

The cuteness!

Sharon saved some puppies!



Look at how cute they are!






^O^





Anyway, this reminded me of a time when my friend, Yong Hwee (and housemate at the time) and I, rescued a puppy when we were studying in Klang.



No, no... don't applaud us yet.


Think we were having dinner at a restaurant in the vicinity of our apartment when we noticed a slightly chubby puppy stroll outside the glass walls. It looked lost, alone and hungry.


AND SO CUTE!







We decided to wait to see whether its mommy/owner would come.

We finished our meals and half an hour after that, we took matters into our own hands and saved it.


It didn't complain when Yong Hwee picked it up.


It didn't complain when we pet it and fed it.


But it sure hell did complain the minute we went out of its sight.


That's when the puppy became extremely annoying.



BUT SO CUTE!




We named it "Chingu" which means "friend" in Korean because at the time Yong Hwee and I were obssessed with anything Korean.
Anyho, Chingu didn't stay with us for long.


Because it had a wound on its back and with each passing day, the wound got bigger and bigger.

Yong Hwee and I were just students. There was no way we have transport or the money for a visit to the vet.


So.


We put it back where we found it.






The End.








Yeah, I know. It broke our hearts but we didn't know what to do!
Plus, it probably had worms :(
See, this is why we do not deserve your applause.

We didn't see or hear from it after that so I guess we'll never know what happened to it.


Sigh.

Moral of the story:
Do not give into the cuteness.






But let's end this on a happier note, shall we?


The owners of this piglett put her in boots because she's afraid of mud!

Imagine that! :D
Almost makes you not want to eat bacon!
Ayeeee?
Ok, probably not >.>

Chop chop chop



My hair was getting a wee bit too long.
So it was time for a cut!
and
half an hour later

It took the hairdresser only 15-20 minutes to snip my hair.
I love how she gave my hair more lift and volume.


And the best thing is that the salon is just 3 minutes outside my door.
It cost me a wee bit.. ($45) but it was so worth it!

Nightmares!

I've had so many interesting nightmares lately.

  1. Aliens descended onto Rundle Mall and began surrounding us.
    They look quite like those Aliens from well... 'Aliens'.

    UGLY.

    I watched in horror as they began slaughtering and feasting on us. It was chaotic! People were running everywhere! I just stood there in horror, unable to move.
    Then, this dog came out of nowhere, attacked one of the aliens, giving me an opportunity to escape. I ran and ran, climbed up walls of houses (Yes, amazing) and finally, into this house to hide.
    The owner comes out and he's pissed. He thinks that I could lead those monsters to his home. He tells me to hide somewhere else.
    I was about to leave when I saw THE DOG THAT SAVED ME!
    I tried to persuade the owner to lend me the dog so we can save the world together!
    Owner gets pissed and ignores me.
    One Republic's 'Apologize' plays in the background and I realized that it was my alarm ringtone.
    Did not get to save the world with dog. Booo.

  2. Had several dreams about ghosts in toilets.
    One was my old primary school toilet. I experienced something there once so.. I often have dreams about it.
    The other one is recurring dream of this block of apartments with haunted toilets.
    Fortunately for you, I don't really want to recall these dreams.
    NEXT!


  3. Steve, my co-supervisor, getting extremely frustrated with me. When I tried to explain myself, he just rolled his eyes, shrugged his shoulders and refused to listen.
    THIS IS A TERRIBLE DREAM! Okay, it's not interesting but it's terrible!!
    Steve is such a mild-mannered and patient man. I was so disappointed in my dream :(


  4. Someone forced me to eat fried chicken!!
    I bit into it and it tasted bland and really oily. EUGHHHHHHH!
    In case you don't know/ have forgotten, I is vegetarian.


Hmmm... I think that's about it.
If you think, these are strange.. well, let me tell you about this particular one where time turned back and my brother and I changed into dinosaurs. He was a triceratops (I think it was because he used to like the Blue Ranger of the Power Rangers).. I don't know what I was because we don't have mirrors in the dinosaur age! -__-

Anyway!! We had to fend off a black peradactyl that kept swooping over us. We think it was trying to eat us!
After much running, we were cornered but the peradactyl turned out to be our "mom" so we didn't get eaten :)

Umm.. I also dreamt once that I was out with my best friend when this pink Hello Kitty wallet (!!!) kept following me! Well, it's not like it floated behind me or anything, it's that wherever I turn, it was there; a pink Hello Kitty wallet lying there!!!
Apparently, it was possessed by a ghost. HAHAA!
Bet you can't top that one!

Thirst for bloodshed






PAINTBALL = AWESOMOUS

Now, a lot of you may think I'm a wee bit too small or a wee bit too unathletic to be running around with a heavy weapon,
then you... might actually be right.


But that didn't stop me!


Pint-sized warrior!



And being small is great! Because it makes me a harder target!
I am usually the one who lasts the longest from my team.

But being small also meant that I was not taken seriously.
I wanted to be the team leader but they just lauged.

But when I joked that our team should be named the 'rainbow unicorns' and they didn't laugh.
My team has a bad sense of humour! >=(



Fierce!

Anyway we were split into two teams; differentiated by either green or black masks.
There were three different terrain maps and several games to be played in each map.



One particular game was called 'Shoot the President'.
Each team had to assign a president (who gets to wear a tacky fluorescent bib).
The mission is to shoot down the opponent's president while protecting your own president.

Yes, I was president.
Yes, I get to wear a tacky bib.

But it hella fun!!

I was scared initially but once I got over the fear,
the adrenaline rush was such a thrill!


I was perhaps the most *cough* unfit person in the group.
My hands probably get the most exercise (typing, hailing down the bus, etc.)

Despite getting hit once or twice but I've found bruises over my knees and even one on my pinky! :(




Either I was immune to the pain when I got shot in those areas
(which is unlikely as I screamed bloody murder when I got shot in the arm)
or I must have gotten them from crawling on the ground.

Yes. I crawled.
What is so unbelievable about that??


Anyho, I managed to bring one of my opponents down.
WOO HOO! *prances*

I am lethal!





I also managed to shot my teammate in the arm. *sheepish grin*

Accidentally of course!!


Adam's battle scars! Green vegetable-oil gunk on his cheek.

Three hours whizzed by and one by one, our paintballs ran out.
I was really tired by the end of it.
Surprisingly, the boys didn't have enough and decided to have a 3-hour gaming session later that night where they get to pretend that they're soldiers and all-macho again.


Boys will be boys, aye?

Happy Birthday


Sultan of Brunei!

He turns 62 today.

I recall having a Malaysian lecturer who once revealed that she had a crush on him.

Anyway, has anyone googled him before? I just did and half of google images were of his prized car collection.

What a collection! O__o

After studying abroad, I realize that foreigners seem to know more about my sultan than I do.
Actually, I don't know much about the Bruneian royalty. You think it's ignorance but it's not.

But I sure learned a lot more from wikipedia than I did living in Brunei for 16 years!

Anyway, happy birthday kingy!

The Three Wise Men

My gums are feeling a little sore at the moment...
due to an emerging wisdom tooth!

*DUM DUM DUM*
Could this mean that I am well and truly on my way to adulthood?
I must be 1/4th of an adult now!
*dumps barbie doll into the bin*
Although if this is a taste of adulthood
then it's not very pleasant.
Booo..

This is for the benefit of Sharon who doesn't know what Wally looks like.
Despite the fact that he's the man in the postcard on the top left corner -_-

Sunshine Buddy

Ladies and gentlemen,
boys and girls,

I present to you...




Nohonhons are solar powered toys from Japan.
The extreme stress levels of working people in Japan, inspired the creation of nohonhons. They were designed to calm their owners by swaying slowly from side to side.
In fact, it's almost hypnotic.

Ever since I saw a canary-yellow nohonhon swaying in a mate's house, I wanted it.

BADLY.

I began hunting on e-bay but they are so freaking expensive.
>=(

So I forgot about it.

But Twinno Yenny must have sensed my burning desire all the way from Korea.

AND SHE POSTED ME ONE!

WOO HOOO! You is awesomous, Yen!

Now, Toby has been with me for quite a while now.
And it wasn't my idea to name him Toby.

J suggested the name Toby and I went along with it.

But it hit me one day.

What if Toby was a girl?

With a pink flower on its bald head!

With a blue ribbon! (and the flower is now a decoration!)

So, should Toby be a girl or a boy?
HmmMM?
