(for those of you who are wondering wat it's like....imagine ringing the stupid freaky bell in Viridian Room...REPEATEDLY...getting faster and faster until feel like ripping the curtains off and just scream at whoever's ringing the damn thing to just shaddup)

I's REALLY getting to me. It maybe for prayer purpose...and wat the hell bout those bells being able to calm you down....when this one goes 'ting ting ting' like a bomb, the speed going towards an allegro like it would blow up in your face....CALM EH???....baka yarou...disrupting the peaceful morning. So crudely ripping off the innocence of the silent, peaceful morning. HOW THE F***** DARE YOU!!!

...maybe I AM turning into a vamp...tehee~~

Come on, I KNOW I've gone nocturnal before...last year...but THAT was, sleeping at 5am, and waking up at 10 for classes...I haven't gone 'sleeping at 7am, waking up at 4pm' I'm REALLY there....yep, for the past few days (weekends maa) slept only at 7, when the sun's rays cruelly trying to break through the resistance of my thick curtains to reach (and perhaps, kill) me....and waking up to the more soothing light of evening rays at 4pm (okay maybe it's NOT THAT calm yet...but curtain's there ^^ )....

Been a lil crazy on music lately...blasting during the day (I..never really blast much before) and playing it almost...all nite. Not having music on seems a lil...awkwardly quiet....hehe....

FINALLY finished Harry Potter 6...what? Don't look at me like that....I took my own sweet time. If I had holiday, could have finished it MUCH earlier....oh yeah, Thanks Dex, for lending your copy ;) having to stare at the comp... (got hard copy for the first 5?? ....Narnia??)

Hmmm.....Got test later....better study first....

..and I have a feeling I'd be sleeping dead tonight after test....

Back laters for better update.....

...and thus, the thunder rolls above our heads....and I silently pray for a pouring rain to least until 12noon when I have class....stop for a while then ya ;)

Reading: Electronic notes+HP4?

Pancake + Puppy Love

(Loading may be a bit slow due to graphics ahead...suman ne)...'s just been 3 days since my last update, and you guys are already asking for an update...rite. Okay, here goes... (thanks for the support tho ^__^ )

Oh btw. Go watch FMP:TSR Ep 6. I love the ending...Oh SOUSUKE..!!! FINALLY!!

Monday, pasar malam. Yay. Bought a lil extra stuff this Monday coz my sis was dropping by to pass me my newly bought printer as well as the stack of CDs Yuhi 'forgot' to buy from PCFair (as well as one of my own and Lisa's) wanted to let her nibble something special from Malacca that she don't usually get in her place. Bought banana as well, one of the more favoured fruit in my list. (The last time I bought apples, I only ate 2 out of the pile of 10. That was my first time biting into a sour apple. The rest were taken back home SP)

Tuesday, went for class in the morning...or did I?...hmmm...wanted to. Lecture finish before I could go. *shrugs* Oh well...was doing event financial report before that. Later on, cooked maggi and then set out to bus stop to wait for bus to go town. Going to stay with my sister for the nite in her room, Renaissance. She was here for some company work, and she got a double room (even thought she booked for single room...happens often enough). Damn bus. Made me wait an hour++...but then again, it didn't feel anything as I had a good book with me...hehe...the guy beside me was restless though...keke. Got to Sentral and bought a bottle of A&W Rootbeer. Me and my sis love those. Too bad we didn't have ice cream. She DID bring a bottle of wine with her. Her friend gave her for quite some time already and didn't really have time to drink. Lucky!!

The room was nice. So pleasant and the view was great too. Last time I went there, it was a 'sea view' (yeah yeah, the sea was miles away...but it's counted as 'sea' time, it was facing the opposite direction..and guess what?? I could even see MMU HOSTEL!! LMAO...wait, I've got pics ...tho it's really tiny.

After work, we went for a walk behind the hotel...there's this nicely made walkway around Sg. Melaka....nicely made. Saw some puppies too. That night, I took her go makan Satay Celup in Capitol. A bit sesat jalan on the way there (coz we usually take the route from the OPPOSITE car...yes we walked)...and yes, she loved it. Hehe...we did snacked on some 'yau char kwai' and 'ham chim peng' before going there and it was the most delicious ones I've had in a while. Got chance must go there and buy summore :D On our way back, she saw a stall selling nyonya popiah. She asked me if it was nice. I told her I didn't know bout this stall but GENERALLY, the nyonya popiahs in Malacca are very despite being very full from the dinner earlier, she bought one for herself. I just couldn't eat anymore. Took a small bite of hers tho and yeah, it was delicious. Am glad she got to taste it..hehe...

The next day, she woke me up to eat the hotel's buffet breakfast. I thought they serve sushi but all they serve was some Japanese rice, miso soup, dunno some rotten beancurd(urgh) and fish...dats for the Japanese stuff. Check out the pastries....oooo...yummy....and the cereal bar and salad counter (with ham, turkey, beef slice and etc), western breakfast, porridge (I skipped this), omelette (cooked on the spot) and roti jala (cooked on the spot too)....I was STUFFED!!...and dat was breakfast, lunch..and almost dinner...keke....Sis joined me later. She just finished some of her work and was free for the time being. So much nicer having someone to eat breakfast with you instead of eating it alone. Later, she went for their fieldtrip, and I went back to room to zzZzzZzzZ...actually I was watching TV lar...then later fell asleep...wahh so nice...draw all the blinds too. Woke up around 2 and continue my book. Poured summore wine and laze in bed with book...wahhh....Later got up and did my Japanese homework..keke....

Oh did I mention? The foreign chef (the one who did the omelette and roti jala asked if I was Japanese...I'm starting a counter from that day in Bon Odori...from then till now, counter's at 3...Shud brush up on Japanese and seriously pretend next time..kekeke....)...I find that foreigners are more easily deceived...ekekee....A year ago I kena from an International student asking if I was Korean. Wow..that was the first. Ekeke...

Kay....around 5.40, got all packed up and walked off from Renaissance to the Ocean...hop on bus and got to Sentral....and then back to MMU JUST IN TIME for a box of Milo drink and my Japanese class...phew. ..hehe....

*suddenly hears dogs barking outside* Oh yeah...Hungry Ghost Festival today..and it's 5am... *shivers* ...*takes blanket and cover*

Oh...and after class, went to kitchen and made Potato Salad, some tuna for sandwich for the week, and pancake. Pancake...was coz I needed to finish the banana I bought from Pasar Malam on Monday...hehe..the skin was getting difficult to peel off (first time seing such stubborn banana...urgh)...


-Pancake mix + sufficient water (not too thick and not too wattery)
-Butter/margerine (for frying)
-Jam (I put blueberry *love* )

Mix Pancake mix with water (follow instructions on pack, if available). Heat butter/margerine in pan. Fry the pancake and dun burn it...ekeke...Put jam on the pancake and slice the bananas (...not the whole bunch of bananas...1-2 will do) and place on top.

Friday: My darn bike almost kena rantai by Security. How the HECK was I supposed to know I wasn't supposed to park THERE?? "It's not illegal, it's just not proper." Dats wat they told me, but at least he was nice enought NOT to rantai (and saman me) coz it wasn't illegal..hehe...and oh....slept thru the evening until around 4. Woke up, played a lil bit of game...then went bathe and prep up self for photo-shooting. Passport pics for Jap class exam...hehe....hope it turns out good ;) ..had fun tho...even tho it was nothing much. Dinner was yummilicious. Vegetarian but heck, it's SOO GOOD I forgot that we were eating vegetarian food..hehe...Highly recommended.

They make a surprisingly good combination. Yummy!!

____________________________ here's the doggy part I promised...A new batch of photos from my sis of my crazy lil doggy, Pochot. Hehe...enjoy.

"Hmm...wats this?? Ooi Chot...ChotCHOT...You alrite?? *pokes pokes*"

Currently: In ECP1016 comp lab.
Listening to: Tutor la...Wish there were some songs tho...
(Was)Watching: FMP: TSR Ep 5 (LOL...damn good ep, esp the car chase scene!)

Haiiiiii! After 2 weeks I was FINALLY reunited with my comp-chan!! *snuggles* Iyorrr baby!! I miss you so MUCH!!! *muaks muaks* Hisashiburi dane!!

Yes, I admit. I'm hopeless w/o my comp. I can no longer live normally w/o my comp. Everything's just so setup to my taste already, from the skins of my applications to the convenience of password saved...

So yeah, after a week or so of holiday, my HDD is back to slavery...MUAHAHAHA....

Wacom works well on baby, tho it kinda acts a lil weird when I put mouse-mode for OpenCanvas 3.06PE...blah....I'll just have to change to pen-mode.

Weekend was wonderful! Well, of course, EEN was postponed, and I did go for a rather nice movie and a great dinner after that and a last minute unexpected 10.11pm shopping at Jusco. Boy that was funny. We only wanted to go for a last minute sushi offer but ended up doing our shopping since the guards didn't chase us out.

Of course, we WERE supposed to go do our shopping earlier at Tesco, but due to the late dinner (which was caused by the late movie, which was partially caused by the GSC ppl and partially caused by our laziness to get off the bed/seat earlier...event trigger...hehe)...we even missed the last Bustuah and Baswira back to Bukit Beruang, and ended up taking Town Bus back to Jusco and taxi home. Everything turned out well in the end, yokatta. That was just Friday.

Saturday...hehe...since comp-chan was still on vacation, I lazed half the day away reading HP6. Yeah, about time. Finally got my butt down and realised that my housemate was cooking dinner. So helped out watever I can and sat down to munch dinner later. Yumm! Was quick enuff this time to grab the vege before Lisa gets her hand on it. Muahaha...

...and of course, best part of Sat: COMP-CHAN COMING BACK... *dances around* After dinner, went up to continue HP6....but then didn't really have mood...kept looking at handphone for time...then around 8, i picked it up to play with the settings and as i was about to put it down, IT RANG!! My bro's friend saying he's on his way with my comp... :3 ..SO HAPPY....

*muaks muaks* Fuiii...I missed it so much!! And of course as you have guessed it, I didn't sleep very early that nite....leeching all those missed episodes as well as doing some catchups...hehe..

*bites dodol given by sis* ..yeah, she came by just now to pass my stuff i bought from PC Fair the other day (and tak larat carry back)...and passed me a pack of Alor Star dodol...YUMMY...going over to her hotel to stay tmr...Renaissance....damn nice room...and she said she brought white wine..weeee!!

Okay, I skipped was so LOVELY. Haven't had such a sweet and nice day in SO LONG. Didn't have to set the alart coz I can wake up ANYTIME...and it was raining...and was sooo cool....woke up around 12 to see my friend message me with "Good.....afternon" and I replied (while STILL lying down on my bed) "I'm still squirming in my bed" ....XD ....snuggled a while longer and got up and chat with her....until 2 sumthing and I had to go for EMiNA meeting..darn....

...Then it was Monday...URGH.....hates it...nuff said...

Am sleepy now....dun wanna write anymore....

Laters ;)

Everytime I enter my looks so sounds so dull...and it is....dull.

Everytime I enter the door and I turn to the familiar place where you would be, I don't see you...and it saddens me greatly. You were always there, ready to greet me everytime I come in thru that door but now, you're not here.

It's so...quiet. The whole room is liveless.

I can't do anything without you. I kept thinking of you. I'm dying to see you!!!

I bought something new for you, you know. I want to show it to you. I'm sure you'll love it. When are you coming back??

I can't wait till the day you come back to me.

I'll be waiting.....




Crap..the stupid haze is finally getting to's raining...and all I can smell is smoke!'s so disgusting!!! Stupid 'neighbours'...

Was painting my room today, took my doggy upstairs and put her on my bed (w/o the mattress)...and she lingered around the bed (coz she dare not jump off the bed...too kecik)...and when my aunt put down the painting bucket 'thing' (dunno the correct name) ...she came and drink it, thinking it was plain water...


Result: blue chinned shitzu

Her paws were blue too...

Anyways, my aunt got tired later, slept on the bed...and I painted some hiragana on her stomach...her leg...and her arm... X3

Nahhh...she wasn't mad.

Had lotsa fun today shopping with her at Tesco. Shopping's always much better when it's only us. We think a lot alike...kekekke....

.....I want my Trinity Blood....
