Wow, I'm kinda impressed with myself how I can easily forgot to update my blog.
*okla, maybe not EXACTLY forgot, but somewhere there...*

# 1 - what happened?
I've been traveling back and forth from Labuan-KK this past few weeks.
Purpose? Just Cuti-Cuti-KK and also went for an interview.
The 2 hours drive feels like, it was no longer a big deal to sit in a car and listen to the same songs in my playlist. I somehow got used to it and I especially enjoy the speed boat ride! HAHA.
One of my teramat naughty cousin sleeping during one of the trip back to kk
*notice the keropok, she was holding on to it even when she's sound asleep. Oh, she's a liverpool fan, well, the dad made her to be. pfft.*

Then, went out with friends, nothing much, just the normal catching up and kepoh session.
and of course that also means it involves our fav restroom in Labuan. hehe.

hmm, other than that, my life was pre-occupied with house chores - something that I seriously dont enjoy doing,fyi.

# 2 - The 'lucky' employer
For those who've been wondering whether I'm still unemployed,
well, I'm unofficially employed now.
Details
Who: Promenade Hotel.
Where: KK
When: Starting on 23rd Sept.
What: As coordinator for Events & Catering under Sales & Marketing dept.
*trust me, I'm not sure myself what coordinator do exactly*
Why: What why? to get a job la~
Who: Who? Me?
How: What how? No idea how to answer this.
Bonus Question that I wont answer: The pay - all I can say is, I can only survive, can't live.

# 3 - what's next?
Well, I'm really looking forward to this next phase of life. Another roller coaster ride for sure. Been making quite a number of BIG decisions lately that pretty much is life changing.
I guess that's the sign I'm growing older?
I'm leaving to KK this thurs and gonna start working immediately after Raya.
Honestly, I feel reluctant to leave... for some reasons.
But, decisions have been made, I have to move on with life.
Nevertheless, I'm pretty excited and anticipating what's gonna happen next.
So, please do always keep me in prayers, aight? =)

# 4 - current thoughts
~how to update or whether to even bother updating this blog considering I wont have internet connection at the place I'm staying in KK.
~if it's possible that I wont be thrown any difficult questions and issues that requires me to make BIG decisions in my life.
~if things could for once go as I planned.
~why 90210 and GG's new season's episode contain more make-out scene?
not that I wanna complain, just wondering. hmm..
~when can I see my friends again... c'mon, someone please organize a reunion?

# 5 - I miss~
@ uni life
when I was in KK, with no internet connection and nothing else better to do, I browse thru the pics in my laptop.
20-30% of the folders are uni pics, and it was really a touching moment to reminisce those days...


^skipping classes - something I'm infamous of =P
^daydreaming in boring classes - do this 80% of the time
^complaining how I couldn't understand what the lecturer is crapping about
(okla, I admit sometimes caused by the daydreaming... haha.)
^secretly snapping my classmates' pic in class - until some are afraid to sit next to me, adui.
^have photoshoot session in campus - crazy times
^the busy days of council - i miss them, a lot.
^complaining about the food in campus and senadin - i miss enxin's chicken rice tho.
^ironically, I miss those last-minute assignment and studying for tests. HAHA!
^setting a goal every sem that I know for sure I wont be able to achieve - like, not to skip classes and finishing assignments earlier. =P
^always wanted to skip weekdays and looking forward to weekend even it's just Monday
^cuci mata in cafeteria - gosh, this one... let's not go there.

Goodness... I could just go on and on and on and on ...
and okay, let's stop here for now.

So, yeah. I seriously miss school.
Now, everyone just have new commitments and their own things to do.
I guess, it's really time for me to accept the fact that...
I, too...
should move on with life.
=)

with the coffeeness in me,

I miss my room.
(the one back in Miri of course)

Although...
It's not big,
not VERY comfy,
no fancy stuff.

Only have one single bed,
one study table,
one chair,
one cupboard,
and 2 book shelves.
(
used to be only one but I bought another one from Val for RM10)

But...
this is the place where I used to spend most of my time,
where I do my series marathon,
where I rush my assignments from sunset to sunrise,
where my housemates come kepoh and do pillow talk,
where I spilled my coffee few times,
the room I least manage among the others in the house

(store not counted),
where I pamper myself,
where I eat my meals when I'm alone,
and most of all...
where I feel I'm most comfortable among any other places in Miri.

It's not that my room here is not comfortable
or not giving me the same feeling...
and,
It's not that I would trade the world to have that room back,
it's just that I miss
this place a lot...
My hiding place.

This is before and after I pack my stuffs...
(yes I know, not very neat)

Half-way thru packing my stuff...
*ok, don't faint*

This is how messy my table and walls are~
*i still keep those small notes and cards, love em'*

AND~~
Me CLEO collection! well, just part of it... =)

Hmm, I guess that's about it.

Till then,

with the coffeeness in me,
-merlyssa-.


Random & Irrelevant: Weather in Labuan is Super hot and oh, the haze is not making it any better. Pfft~


- m e r l y s s a -
Yea... That's what someone says, or should I say.... some people... *roll eyes*

Anyhoo-haa...~ I'm not gonna do that at the moment cuz frankly, there's nothing much to update except...

I'm bored,
I miss school,
I haven't unpack (yes, been back for few days now, but...
choi ah?),
I'm tired,
I'm craving for good food,
and... oh... did I mention,

I'm unofficially a graduate!!!

Don't be so happy just yet,
cuz that also means...

I'm officially unemployed now...
:(

I'll write something when I've got something to write aight~



*maybe i should do this, waddya think?*

Till then,

Meet up with my 3 friends whom I know since my foundation year in Curtin
for a yam-cha session in Najwa.
*Eli, Alan, & Shariman... guess which one is the KL-ian*

We chat on things...
from foundation until our final year...
on lecturers to classmates...
about classes to clubs...
about how different we've been...
past and future...
things we've worried before & things we're worrying...
and...stuffs.

It has always been nice chatting with this bunch because they're always funny and the words/phrases that they use is always kua-zhang (exaggerate)...
I know I will definitely miss them, like... so much.

Read this...
(In Najwa)
*waitress come give menu*
*me and the other 2 guys just order drinks*

Eli: "you all dont wanna eat anything?'
Me, Alan, Man: "nola..."
Eli: *turn to the waitress* "err....nanti kalau saya lapar saya order..."

LOL. she said that in the most selamba way ever okay!

(In Car)
*Man and Eli were talking about a friend*
Eli: "where is he now ah?'
Man: "terkorban in misi already..."
Eli: *in SHOCK* "Har??? really?? how come?? why??"
*and all the WH-Questions continuosly repeated while Man was laughing so hard while driving*
Man: "nola...what I meant was, he flunk his subjects and left Miri already"
Eli: "OHHHHHHH...Cheh! Scare me! I thought you say he terkorban in misi what....I thought like misi in Iraq or war at somewhere... read too much International news ba recently..."
*Me and Alan laugh like crazy at the passenger seat behind*

Sigh...Eli, you never fail to crack me up la... Thanks! hehe...

Anyways...
I think I'd definitely miss my Uni-life...
not exactly the Uni itself,
but...
the bond,
the friends,
the memory,
the crazy things I did,
the stupid things I said,
and...
the moment(s).

There's gonna be more yam-cha session to come
and I'm gonna treasure my time spent with them...

Till then,

Officially done with exams.
*hopefully*

Worried with 2 papers and the other 2, should be fine~

Lots of outings after this, and it's gonna be my last few days in Miri till I come again for visit(s).

But for now, I'm still alive even after the i-don-consider-very-stress study week.
*well, just chose not to be stressed, or more accurately I was more occupied with THIS*

*Loving it.*

But oh well, exams is over... Time to pack my things and leave, not sure what to pack, what's even worst, I don't know where to start! =P

We'll worry about that later...for now, it's time to.....
PARTAAAAYYYYY~~~~~~~~~ =D

Again... Not that it matters... :P

Anyways... My study week was rather... less productive than my other peers... When I'm supposed to be pulling my hairs and stressing over my revision week, I was out yamcha-ing and meeting up with friends... =P *oh, but no, not cuz I'm all well-prepared for my finals, not at all!* So, since I got back from Bintulu on Tuesday, my productive days (sound so wrong, but yea) are only till friday afternoon, then my yamcha session starts.

I was out on Friday night with Ambrose & Grace the newly weds, together with (Dr.) George also Alvin & Adeline the ever-loving couple. We were chitchating in Starbucks about George and Ambrose's 'those-were-the-days-moment' and it was really funny! I really would love to share their story, but I think it is inappropriate. *make the angel look*

Then on Saturday went out with Michael, another friend we met at Ambrose's wedding who came down from Brunei for his 'monthly-only-offday' *yes, only 1 offday/month, no weekends too!*. So we went to BigApple, first time for me in Miri, and look what's on their menu!

*I think this is made for me.... No? =p*

At night, another friend whom we met also at Ambrose's wedding, Lemon, take us out to dinner at "shi li xiang" for Bak-Kut-Teh... It's like a gathering cum makan-makan session weekend you know! And all of them so generous to 'qing-ke'.... THANKS!

So, that's it for my current update just in case you thought I already die from pulling out all my hairs during my revision week. LOL.

*All the best Curtin-ians! Let's go out partying after exam! WUHHOOO*

Till then,

Harrrooooooo!!! (Hamtaro 2009) *it's Hello in Barbie Language*

I just got back from Bintulu, and this post is just to let u know I'm back safely :)

The trip was AWESOME! Had so much fun and made new friends! Will blog about the wedding during my revising break-time (ya,right.)!

Anyways, while on the bus back from Bintulu, I tried to take my nap but failed. So, while listening to some emo and sentimental songs on my iPod shuffle, I wrote Something... Not dedicated to anyone la... just these words came into my mind then I started typing on my phone while my 3 friends doze into their lala-land~

* please dont laugh... this is my first time to write this...*

To hold your hands is what I've longed for,
To see you is what I've been anticipating,
To love you is all I want to do,
To miss you is what I'd do every moment possible,
To think of you is never an exception.

I'd brush your hair like a baby when you lie on my lap,
I'd pray with you when you're at time of difficulties,
I'd stare you to sleep whenever you fall asleep beside me,
I'd hug you even when you don't need one,
I'd tell you lame jokes just so you could make fun of me,
I'd hold my pee if I have to just so you could tell me how your day went,
and tell me funny stories or even the unhappy ones,
I'd take us to our favourite restaurant to celebrate your achievement, or even for the fun of it,
I'd cook for you even if my cooking sucks.

Every sunset I'll pray that your worries will go away,
and when the sunrise comes,
your day will be brighter as if the sun gets bigger.

I would... as long as you'll be there.
And the rest,
is irrelevant.



Corny... No? HAHAHAHAHHAHA~ I think the inspiration came from the wedding I attended. The couple is so loving... and I'm really REALLY happy for them till I think I cry 1st before the bride's mom. wth? HAHAHAH~

I tell you most solemnly...

today is...

VERY chi-ji (what's the word for... Exciting+Adventurous+but DANGEROUS?...watever~) I tell you... OMG....Very Chi-Ji lor....

So the story goes like this...

Once upon a time, there is this team -> Partners-in-Crime (PIC) which consists of two guys and a girl...


But, on this particular day, 2 of the PIC decided to meet up for one of the missions... Let's just name them... Ms. M and Mr. A... (okay, obviously Ms. M is me since I'm telling a story about my day... duh.).

Anyways, so they are supposed to meet up at 10am for the mission (which is to revise for finals). BUT......................... Mr. A has his own mission to accomplish that particular day, so he drags Ms. M along even after she says NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO..... But she was threatened and since she has no choice, she went for the mission with Mr. A with the condition that Mr. A will help her with her mission~ *raise eyebrow repeatedly*...

*okay, it's getting confusing now... so let's just go straight to the point.. okay? =)*

Okay, so Mr. A wants me to accompany him to the lecturer's office at the new SOB building which is like in Middle-East, and we were from library at that time... So, the initial plan was to find the lecturer, get what he needs and proceed to completing my mission - which is to distribute the Thank-You card to different departments. Little did Mr. A knows that it actually involves ALL the departments available in Curtin *laughs hysterically and with mean echo*... So, Mr. A very guai-guai de follow me from ICT dept. to School of Foundation (G-2) to School of Engineeing (G-1)... and then..... becos we were too tired of walking *me in high-heels and him in formal shoe*, we decided to take the lift/elevator! *we're so smart right? I know...but wait...*

So we walk into the lift (the one in G1 which we always heard about ghost stories in there)... then... the lift close.... then.... *the climax of this story.... *

*lift door close*
Me: *just about to say: "eh, what if we're stuck in the lift ah?" but before I even say it out...* *heard beeps....and the lift .... is NOT moving......*
Me: 'eh, u din press G ba...' *then, me pressing the 'G' Button... and STILL not moving...*
still Me: *press the G button and the open and close button repeatedly... or did i press all the buttons there? I also din remember~*
*I donno wat Mr.A was doing cuz I seriously don't remember and don't bother to notice*
Me: 'OMG... bu hao xiao lorr... (not funny lor)'
*I think Mr. A started laughing* *then...after a while... just feel a bit shacky...and the lift door opens...and the lift actually dropped lower than the floor...*

OMG! I was stucked in an elevator!!!!!! OMG!
*gasps*

I was still blur but Mr.A was laughing at me and keep on teasing me at how I keep on pressing all the buttons... MR.A! NOT FUNNY OKAY!...

Anyways, I'm glad that we got out without doing the Mission Impossible actions... HAHAHAHA~ I really thank God that we're alright and yes, I was frighten a bit...

Then it was my last lecture for Marketing of Services unit... and we snap some photos during class...

And...AFTER!
*other pics are in FB for you to check-it-out*

A song written by Steven Curtis Chapman to his wife...

Tomorrow morning if you wake
up and the sun does not appear
I will be here
If in the dark, we lose sight of love
Hold my hand, and have no fear
'Cause I will be here

I will be here
When you feel like being quiet
When you need to speak your mind
I will listen
And I will be here
When the laughter turns to cryin'
Through the winning, losing and trying
We'll be together
I will be here

Tomorrow morning, if you wake up
And the future is unclear
I will be here
Just as sure as seasons were made for change
Our lifetimes were made for these years
So I will be here

I will be here
And you can cry on my shoulder
When the mirror tells us we're older
I will hold you
And I will be here
To watch you grow in beauty
And tell you all the things you are to me
I will be here

I will be true to the promise I have made
To you and to the One who gave you to me

Tomorrow morning, if you wake up
And the sun does not appear
I will be here
Oh, I will be here


* would you be able to tell your loved ones...these? =)*
-the song is in the player, right side of this blog ~ the ugly colour teddy bear-
- m e r l y s s a -
Not that it matters.
(referring to the hits)


Anyhow... I just wanna show-off my new blog template. =P

It took me, well, sometime to figure this thing out. And no, it's not cuz I'm very free.
*altho I only have 1 assignment left before the end of my uni-life*

This blog is not 100% complete yet, especially the blog lists part, cuz I don't frequently
read blogs.
*turn head to the side and laughs*


It was a busy week(s) for me cuz most of the assignments due on the same day/week. And now, have to 'pia' for the last assignment.

Anyhow (again), enjoy your busy weeks Curtin-ians (and to those non-Curtin-ians or Ex-Curtin-ians who are busy too), and to those who finished their assignments EARLIER than they're supposed to...BUUUUUWWWWWWWWWW! =P


Till then...

with the coffeeness in me,
-merlyssa-.

P/S: I really Love this new template. =)
- m e r l y s s a -


you will be comforted,
your loving heart will continue to love and give of yourself to others,
you will be strengthen when you are down,
and be given hope when you are discouraged.

Most of all,
you will be granted with graces you most need and desire...
not only today, on Mothers' Day,
but,
all the days of your life.

Thank You, Mom.

I love you.

I'm not the exact "Care Bear" person that people will love. Neither am I a good friend. I'm serious.

I mean, define Good Friend or Best Friend or BFF or Twins-but-not-blood-related or whatever synonym you wanna call a "friend". I'm sure all of us define it differently, but typical person will answer "someone who will support me in everything I do, who will be there thru thick n thin, be a shoulder for me to cry on, make me laugh... et cetera." Familliar? A lot of people have been making comments on me... directly/indirectly... "we have not been spending time together", "you're so mean", "you're not listening to me", and the most common and overused phrase I've received "you've changed." Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, nor am I having any 'friendship issues', it's just... a thought that suddenly crosses my mind.

Personally, I really feel I don't make a good company (no, not the law 222 business organisation's term of company -_-|||), company as in, companion, a friend to be exact. Why? Cuz I don't lend my shoulder to cry on, I'd probably don't support EVERYTHING that you do, I won't be there thru thick n thin and again, et cetera. In short, I'm like chipsmore. I'd be there when I'm there and I'm not there, simple cuz I'm not there. You can say I'm selfish, and be a hypocrite saying that you're not (or maybe I'm wrong, if that makes you happy). But, it's just me, I'm not a powerpuff girl that you can expect me to be there just cuz... I should. But hey, I'm not THAT mean okay, I'm created with feelings, especially sensitivity, which actually becomes my weak point. Anyways, I usually will realise when I need to care, and I will really care when I really want to, that sometimes you will cry blood cuz you are SOOOOOOOOO touched. (ok, thats me exaggerating). But my point is, I care, in my own way. But I'm not a Care Bear that will always be there. Get me?........ No? Nevermind.

I do realise that I don't spend much time with my friends. I can be entertaining (*i think*), but I don't have a FIXED group of friends that I hang out together. I now understand why a person who used to be hanging out with almost ALL his/her friends, from different bunch, now prefer to hang out with himself/herself. Having a big network of friends does exhaust you when you have to please everyone... If you hang out with one bunch more than the other bunch, the other bunch will say "he/she's changed", or if it's the other way round. So, no matter what you do, there'll be a bunch that you cared so much would have a perception on you. Exhausting...no? And I even have friends who have this "care bear" nature, and end up this care bear has no one cared for him/her. It's because people wouldn't bother about his (assume this care bear is a jantan) needs, and that he'll always be there, cuz, he's a care bear! But again, because he is a care bear, he never complains and still care for the people around him. Cuz, he's a CARE BEAR! So, are you a care bear? =)

You must be wondering why am I suddenly so Emo right? In actual fact, I'm not. Well
yes I'm emo becos it's the end of my free week, but No, I'm not emo of this friendship thingy. I got over emo-ing on this issue and I've moved on. I'm pretty happy with the Care Bears I have around me, and I do constantly Thank God for all of them. The reason I write this entry, is because I have another entry (if God permits me to live until I write that entry, that is.) that relates to Caring as Purpose of Life. It's from a book I read called - Everyday with Jesus. I admit I'm not the person you can label "holy punya orang", but I have my faith. I highly recommend this book to those who thinks they cant read the whole bible but wants to get closer to God. It's cheap, RM7 and published every 2/3 months. And what you do is, to read a passage everyday that is only a page long (1/4 of A4), so if you can read textbooks/magazines/read this entry, you have the time! =) The passage is very simple to understand but makes you ponder on things, and is exactly what I need.

Oh, and No, I'm not paid to advertise. =) Just a recommendation.


So to all Care Bears out there. Good Job on being a great friend. and to all non-Care Bears -
BOOOOOOO! =P hahahah~

Till then,

P/S: Entry above is purely sharing of my thoughts and contains no intention directly/indirectly against any living/nonliving individual/creature.


I am so gonna let me kids wear these! Everyone, together with me... let's go... "awwwwwwww...."

Probably I shud get myself one too!
Should I get the middle blue one or pink one? hmm.... tough choice....
I think I shud get both~ no?

Life without coffee was pretty... depressing. Why? A club borrowed my house's stove for the carnival... And they kinda forgot to return it cuz they thought no one at my house... So, I din have any coffee for the week, and yes, I'm still alive. Be surprised.

Nola, that isn't the main reason why i'm depressed... it's my lappie, who decided to play "see-if-you'll-die-without-me" game... On that night I planned to backup my files, the harddrive/disc/watever-u-call-it, crashed. No, not crashed just crashed... it's C.R.A.S.H.E.D = data lost = need to buy new harddrive/disc/watever-u-call-it = and.... did i say data lost already? as in DATA = pictures = assignments= stuffs = stuffss = and stuffssssss (like, movie, series that i spent in accumulation probably how many months or even years...) OMG.... c'mon everyone, say with me... O.M.G. *gasps*

But...nonetheless, I got over it. Cuz it's the 3rd time already... So, let's talk about something else...

Hmm, let's see, I have lots to blog about actually, cuz it's free week... and I even have pics... but kan, as mentioned, my lappie is back without its memory. stupid.

So, I'll try my best to update on what crap I've been doing...well, not all are crap la, i'm not that useless.

Classes...
it has been a great final-sem... with my partner(s) in crime (PIC), complaining on the workload which I made no effort of, trying to avoid questions shooted at us (for example....)

video

*tilt ur head to the left to watch this*
#I don't think he reads my blog...so, I don't care..."#

But, there's a reason behind this... C** (the lecturer) was shooting questions at him till he cant tahan and plus, the class is a bit... B****G. (have to censor, manatau HE reads my blog) So, when I turn to my left wanna kacau this guy, I was like "ui???? (wondering where he went)" then, him, under the table "wei wei wei!!!".... i cant tahan i almost burst out laughing...even Joseph who's sitting beside me also din realise he was there, under the table, and...obviously, as u heard C** still 'preaching', he also din realise my little friend is hiding under the table... =s

Then... sometimes, we take pics in class... or... I candid them.

Left: One of my PIC - a die-hard Liverpool fans, thinks he looks cute with that look.
Middle: Group pic suddenly "ordered" by our lecturer, dont know why...
Right: Candid pic in MOS class, the guy in white is.... indescribably lame. but, funny at the same time.

Next, Fridge... *I know, I'm so random...* Sue me la!! =P

Nothing much to say, I cleaned my fridge, and it sparkles like my eyes~

See! Told u!!!! altho my eyes dont EXACTLY sparkle like that la~~~~


Next, Bowling and Nails...

I joined a bowling competition last month, but I won't tell you what competition is that, and of course, I did not win. We (team of 2 guys and 2 girls) had fun altho we did not win, and on top of that, I broke my Thumb nail, and that was during training - just the night before the actual game. *warning: this is a bit disgusting...*

Left: Just broken, I didn't know it was bleeding that time, so I threw another ball...
2nd pic: I saw blood, then I feel the pain. *it's always like that, I think if I din see the blood, I would have forgotten that I broke my nail*
3rd pic: Back home, tried to cut the rest of the nail, cuz it's broken half-way, as in, hmm... you know what I mean la right?
4th pic: tadaa.....Gone. it was freaking painful cuz my nail is so hard and it still bleed as I cut it...

But, don't worry, my nails are healthy and happy now, altho a bit short and ugly. =s

Next, Food...~ in Citrus and Xcuisine. Well, mostly took pics~~ =p

In Citrus, that day we went for dinner was that night when everyone are supposed to switch off their lights for 1 hour - yeah, earth hour.... so, Citrus also konon-nya update liddat la... then they came up with something creative.
Nice kan??

Then on last wed nite, went to watch Fast & Furious 4, with Ivy, Heather, Alan, Heng&Jen. Super nice movie, don't mind watching the 2nd time. =) Anyways, before that we had dinner in Xcuisine... first time there - food (INTERESTING), and the yingyong there quite nice @ Rm2.50 (hot one).... why I say the food interesting? you see for yourself la...
*I've seen this before, but not live, so it's quite interesting to me la*

video
O.M.G the thing in the food actually looked alive!

I mean, you know... the thingy is in motion like its in pain or something.... it doesn't taste nice tho.... not sure was it becos I keep on imagining it is alive in my stomach or, memang the taste not nice... hmm, you tell me.
There you go.... my updates... I was trying not to write so much of daily stuff cuz I might bore you then I can't have a post entitled "2000th hit" or even "1500th". *pfft..*

Aaaaaaaanyways, life's great with coffee now.... and also cuz there's so many ppl around me and my laptop, are full with their own sense of humour... different kinds - lame ones, funny ones, doesnt make sense ones, not funny ones but you still laugh, trying too hard ones, etc... which one are you? =)

P/S: I'm somehow happy today cuz knowing it's Easter soon, which also means the end to the season of Lent. (which also means can start gossipping dy.... JUST KIDDING!) =P

Update: OMG. My PIC (the guy in the video) actually read my blog.... -_-|||

Till then...

Remarking 1000th Hit, I would like to share with you today's homily by Fr.Andy and a kind reminder to myself (and you, if you want)...



People are often unreasonable,
Illogical and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind,
People may accuse
You of selfish motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful,
You will win some false friends
And some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank,
People may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building,
Someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness,
They may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today,
People will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have,
And it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you have anyway.

You see, in the final analysis,
It is between you and God;
It never was between you and them anyway.

~Mother Teresa~



Ain't this amazing? By the way, I DID NOT refresh my blog page every second until it reached 1000th... pls la, although I may seem (look) VERY free, I'm not that WU LIAO okay?!

I had my haircut last sunday, and guess what...

Half of it is gone. (in length, that is.)

It took Mike (the guy who cut my hair), around 1 hour to cut my hair, i mean, just cut, 1 hour! To me, that's super long... and my eyes were like.... i donno how to describe... *enlarged*? cuz he was like non-stop cutting my hair and i almost faint when i saw my hair on the floor...

this is only part of it... and imagine everytime he cuts, its THAT length!

I almost cried.

I keep on telling Agnes (who was sitting next to me) "wah, very short oh, omg!"

After finish cut...

Mike: "too short ah?"
Me: "erm...a lil la..."
Mike: "actually, its quite short la..."
Me: "hahaha...apala! but, its okay la, not that can undo also"
Mike: "hahaha... well, u always have long hair ba, u so skinny, don keep long hair lor, look even more skinny... aiya, ur hair will grow back la..."
Me: "okay lor...."

Then for a while, I was convincing myself it looks nice. Cuz im so not used to it... and cuz my long hair is my *ahem cough* best asset i have (had now).

But when I reached home, for a moment I felt like screaming,
"Whose idea was it to go for a haircut???? WHO????"

*paused*
wait, I think it was me.

LOL.

So, I kinda accept the fact that I no longer have a long straight black hair.
BUT! my hair will grow! It's just a matter of time.

So this is the before and after pics (long and short hair).
BEFORE...
Long kan??? and cuz my hair is layered, the end of my hair u see in this pic isn't my longest hair strand.

Okay, I don't wanna put up this pic, but sadly I couldn't find any other pic that can show my long hair.
*it was a failed attempt to look seducing*
so, go ahead and laugh till you fell off your chair like I did.


AND.... Here's the AFTER pic...



And... the end of my hair in this pic is the longest hair strand now.
*sad kan?*

*purely edited using photoscape hence I did NOT edit any of my features to make me look like i just had a plastic surgery.*
plus, I don't even know how to use photoshop and couldn't be bothered to learn it either.

Oh btw, the Before pic you saw, that wasn't my longest hair I ever kept.

This is....

Pic taken during Post-return Orientation in Washington DC.


Taken with hostmom (2nd hostfamily, i only got 2 btw) during a shopping spree just before I left US. Cute kan her?


Another pic with my hostmom (1st host family) in Hawaii! Yup, they brought me to Hawaii! =)


So, there you go... my long hair...
*bye bye*

*teary eye*

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanyways, next post probably will be on my classes, if i managed to take any pic in the class la, i show u our new building (2nd phase).

Till then...
