Hello again.....

It's funny that I have nothing to say in one moment and lot's to say in another. I have a feeling that when I say I have naught to say about I tend to keep going and PooF! I got millions of things to say. That's usually what happens here doesn't it? So I shall move on and start doing my thing...mumbling around and crapping.

You see last week, I went to the Penang PC Fair...if you guys don't know what it is, it's actually a fair with lots of electronic stuff....(haha...I made you more confuse didn't I?) Okay, actually PC Fair is some sort like a sale of electronic products such as laptops, cameras, earphones, anti-virus programs, printers and discs...basically it's things that got to do with computers. I'm not much of a computer expert and you can say I'm pretty dumb when it comes to computers...all I know is to use the basic Microsoft programs and some pretty basic stuff like surf the net and play games. So you can see me in awe of all sorts of electronic products which I can't even afford to buy...espicially those ultra-modern and technologically advanced mouth is salivating thinking of owning one. Unfortunately, I still can't afford one as I haven't collected enough $$ to buy one....soon I know I can afford it...soon......

I actually did buy something there. A computer mouse, earphones and some discs. The computer mouse was so cute, I couldn't resist buying it. The laptops were so suave and nice but sadly just not affordable for me yet. We walked around for some time looking at cameras too since that's actually one of the reasons we went there for Hui Ping to buy a digital camera. She finally settle on an Olympus camera which cost RM699. It was really nice and I think well worth the money she paid for. There were free gifts included in purchase of the camera too. Included in the camera was a 2GB memory card, a mini tripod, some cleaning cloth and some camera string. She and Hui Ting seriously drove a hard bargain asking for free stuff which I have to admit I would do because I'll be too scared to ask for. Their ways of haggling over the free stuff is really much to be admired. Remind me to bring them along next time I want to haggle some price over stuff or free gifts.

After that, we decided we didn't really want to go home so we went to Queensbay Mall for some window shopping. I did buy some books in Borders while we were there though. Wewent to visit a friend working there and to peek on some magazines. I couldn't resist buying books while we were there. (I'm a sucker for romance and I read lots of romance novels...I'm not afraid to admit that and I think reading them have totally help me improve my English from bad to okay)

You can say that my room is filled with books...not just romance novel mind you, I actually do read different genres of books that I find interesting. I'm the kind who actually judge a book by it's cover and really buys a book based purely on it's summary at the back or the cover. You can't really blame me considering all kinds of people get attracted by packaging...I also often will buy a book mainly because I have read the author's book and love he or hers book...such as Samantha James, Lisa Kleypas and Dan Brown....I've read almost all their books...(almost is the word here...I haven't had the chance to say all yet..) Then we went around window shopping again....walking around got us hungry so we stop by McD for something to bite on. It's the most affordable food we can think of...and it taste pretty good and of course kind of fattening but who cares as long as it's yummy. (And you wonder how I gain those kilos...haiz...) We walked in to Forever 21 to look around when we decided to try on a dress there. It was a knee-length black dress which cost around Rm150 and I didn't think I would have like it at 1st but I love it once I put it on...sadly I can't afford it. I tried it on and they say I look nice in it and I have to say black is the most flattering colour on me and the dress was empire nice and I finally think I look pretty for once. It totally rocks and I'm thinking of buying it....I have to dig further into my purse and buy it...I have to after missing out on buying that pair of heels I've been eying and finally didn't buy because of not having it in my size anymore. I am not going to miss out on this this time...we shall see if I bought it or not.

Okay back to the topic, later when we were going home we suddenly decided we want to take some pictures. Since we parked our car on the rooftop of Queensbay Mall and the view up there was really amazing, we took out the newly purchased camera of Hui Ping and the mini tripod to use and started snapping some pretty funny and lame pictures. I have to admit it was pretty fun to do all those jumping on the rooftop and making funny faces in front of the camera. We even took some pictures near the seaside near Queensbay Mall and although it was pretty windy it was really fun and crazy....I had a great time that day...super fun....hehehe...doing crazy stuf is definitely fun......

See, as I have told you as soon as I started I keep going on and on didn't I? Okay that's it for today....thank you for reading all my ramblings...I'll sign in another day...see ya all....

Days of my life....

It's been more than a month since I even updated. I don't even think there are anyone reading my blog, yet I feel obligated to myself to write something to remember years later when I look back. Lot's of things had happened past this month. One very life-changing moment was the annoucement of my STPM results. Sadly, it was not very good and I have to suffer the consequences of my own actions. I have only gotten an A when I have expected at least 2A's or 3A's. Reality hurts and although I regret not studying hard enough or doing more exercises, I realised I did try my best. Right now, I should look to the future and do my best now and not dwelled on the past. Well let bygones be bygones. I try making the best of the worst and I've learnt a very harsh lesson indeed.
As you all know, I've been working for 4 months now....still going to be working till I enter university which is in July. I've tried to enjoy myself before entering this new phase of my life...going into university. The thought of it kinda freaks me out because I'm afraid of mostly not having any friends in uni and having to find friends. Well I still have three months to go to learn to be more sociable then the now reclusive and non-sociable me.
I had quite some fun time in the month of March and April besides the obvious heartbreaker (the STPM results). I went to a few places I never go before. When I say places, I mean restaurants. I dined in quite a few that I never go before thanks to my friends. You see, I'm a very kiam siap person (stingy) and try not to spend too much money. Now that I'm working I would tend splurge more it seems. I went to try the food in Pastamania....not very was okay....went to Old Town Cafe once...but I didn't drink anything because I didn't feel thirsty. You see, mostly when I go out with my friends, it's always either to eat or to the movie. I have watched a few movies, from 27 Dresses, Spiderwick Chronicles, Nim's Island, Ah Long Pte Ltd and a few more....I think I have watched a movie every week. That's my life now...pretty boring huh...but I really enjoy time spending talking to friends. We talk about almost everything including all kinds of funny stuff....that's why I feel that leaving Penang to go to university would be such a huge step because without these friends, I really feel lonely. Haven't know what university I'm going yet but hopefully it's a course that I like and can study. I almost forgot I did go somewhere this March...I went to the Tropical Spice look at plants...hehe...I went with the school's student librarians and teachers. It was quite fun to look at so many different plants.....

On Friday, which was the 18th of April, I had a great time talking to my girl buddies again. I really like listening to their voices because somehow they make me feel like I belong somewhere. We had decided to surprise Hui Ting with a surprise birthday cake. Her birthday isn't another week to come which is on the 26th of April. We bought a blueberry cheesecake for her and I made her a bookmark and together we bought her a bag for her soon to coming days in uni. We went to have dinner in Little Cottage (once again another restaurant I haven't been before) which we sprang a surprise on her...the restaurant even played a birthday song for her...very cute song...... The food was nice and the atmosphere was warm and cozy...a little bit expensive to my taste but still affordable thankfully. After dinner, we went to New World Park and fool around a bit. Taking pictures and doing stupid stuff. Then we went to another place I haven't been before which is Jemputree for some late night drinks ( we drank till almost 1 am...well it was just non-alcoholic drinks...not to worry...hahaha).....and talk and talk and talk. We even played cards and HeartAttack and I think we were probably the noisiest bunch of girls the workers there have ever seen. It was really fun....I'm still thinking of how my future would be like...but somehow with them I don't have to worry how I'm going through it because I have friends.
( The blueberry cheesecake..yummy)

I'm actually very proud of my group of sisters.....They are a very big part of my life. That's why we have to cherish every friend we have because besides our family, friends are the one to share your life with....Friends forever....Love you guys...
