Random Update

As I mentioned in my older post, I followed Jonathan, a friend of mine to Melaka for Chinese New Year. Just a short update, I would say it is a rather odd for me as I was the only outsider to join the occasion. Why was it odd? All his family and relatives were there, all his uncles and aunties, cousins and me, coming from nowhere, presented at the family gathering. Well, they did treat me with warmest welcome yet somehow it is a bit too much as I am still considered myself a stranger as I only know my friend well but not his family. Apparently, he has an aunt who comes from Sarawak, too. She is also an Iban. At least I have someone there who has something in common. Anyway, it has been fun. Really have to thank him and his family. One of my memories to be cheered.


Second week of this semester has ended. Done with the registration, done with the timetable. Everything is finalized. Time to get real serious, perhaps not now. May be next week, or may be a week after that, on and on. I am a guy who procrastinates. Seriously, I really have to change my attitude to my studies. I mean, to be more consistent and no more last minute but it is hard to change.


*Personal stuff rolls in.

Loneliness strikes even when you are not alone. Quite ironic, right? But I do find such statement true, and it is so cruel. Darn, wondering why thing has to be this way? Am so disappointed of myself, sometimes.

Life is hard but hope I am okay.

**Am getting lazy to update this blog daily as I was used to. Only update when I have the mood.

Happy Birthday, Baby

My youngest brother turns 6 this year. Even though he has grown up, all of us still called him, “baby”.

Expected to be a baby girl, we all were still excited when he was born 6 years ago. I would say I am lucky enough to watch him growing up until today. Am matured enough to know why he cried, why he laughed, when he needed to be fed. From his first sit on his own, his first crawl, his first stand, his first step. Every single bit of that I get to notice. A good thing for me being the eldest.

Getting naughty year by year; become harder to handle till a point that I get fed up. Well, he is still a “baby”. Always stick with me when I at home. When he started his first year of school, it was also the time for me to be away from home to pursue my studies. Cannot be there to guide him as I want to.

Surely he won’t be able to read this but it is thought that counts, right?

Too Many Things; Too Little Time

Found this note in my friend's profile in Facebook. Wondering does he write this on his own or he gets it from somewhere, I am not really sure. Detonated Bombs, Melodramatic Fools, Nothing and Everything
Note: If you don't have Facebook, you may not be able to view the note. Good thing about Facebook: more privacy.

"Things are always not like what it seems,
There are times feeling of redundant and alone strikes, but unexpectedly friends will appear and do their parts of making me feel good.
There are times when I was expecting my friends to act like what I was hoping them to do, but the results fails me....."

This particular paragraph strikes me through the heart. How true is this happening to me, too. One of the primary reasons for me to feel emotional sometimes. I admit I am a pessimistic guy with all those negative thought in my mind which makes me suffer, am still trying to be more positive. May feel angry when stuff didn't happen as I wanted to but after lots of thinking, I truly realize that thing is not as bad as I imagined.

Am so happy lately because the last line above happened. I may not be frank enough to admit that I am real contented but God knows how happy I am now. Really hope this last long and forever.

And you, really hope you could pull yourself together. You seem to be have changed. Less smile, less happiness compared to last time. I am not feeling good to see you like this. Be happy because I am here. =)


Attended my Moral lectures yesterday. He is an American, by the way. His words, his thought, his accent, everything. Just blow my mind eventhough I don't really get what he is trying to say. Real get distorted, as he said. Other than his furious face, he is a guy with a deep sense of humors and I think he gets to know a little about local politic, too.

Yet, the course is tough as usual. Have assignments to hand in after the CNY break. What the.... (shall not curse).


Going to Malacca tomorrow with my friend, Jonathan for the upcoming Chinese New Year. Hope it will be fun.

First Week

UTP is on FIRE!

Fortunately, no casualties occur. The only victimised creatures are mosquitoes but most of them survived as they managed to escape from the catastrophic FOGGING.


First week of my undergraduate studies almost ends. It has been quite tiring and exhausting. Plenty of stuff to do and walking, walking and walking. Yes, I complaint because we have to walk so far away to the new academic complex.

No much thing to update at the moment. Physical Chemistry lecture is boring, eventhough the lecturer is better than before. Differential Equation lecturer is kind of scary, with little sense of humor. Glad to have Mr. Razol to become our Academic Writing lecturer.

My course for this semester:
Physical Chemistry
Organic Chemistry
Differential Equations
Academic Writing
Introduction to Oil and Gas Industry
Moral Studies (add)
Co-curriculum (add)

Everyday the class will end at 5pm, 6pm or 7pm and night class on Wednesday. Become more hectic than before. Expected though, but it sounds fun and exciting.

*Heard that my blog can make readers cry. Seriously? I am not crying myself when I was writing those emotional posts.
**Banning Rihanna coming to KL? Not again!
***May be emotionally tired of waiting sometimes, I find it is worth it. Am happy.

No Peace

Saw this comment appear everywhere in YouTube.

World will never be peaceful because these CHILDISH people exist. Am so disappointed.

I'm Back

Finally back to reality.

The last 2 days has been a quite adventure. Flying back from home to KL on Saturday. Two hours flight. Going to Ipoh using bus on Sunday. Two and a half hours ride. Then, one friend of mine, Yi Herng, which is my coursemate, sending me back to UTP. Another forty-five minutes. Upon arrival, I immediately unpacked my luggage and got my stuff from store room. It took about 2 hours to get everything done before I nearly fainted, seriously. Guess I was damn tired.

First day of lecture, which is today. Freaking exhausted. Non-stop walking from one place to another. All our lectures are now shifted to new building complex which is about 15 minutes walk from our hostel. Imagine walking everyday, under hot sun with no shade. So chaos with the rumors about change in timetable and add/drop thing, get me so stress up and sweat all over.

*Feel the pain in the joints of my hands and legs.
**Out of 100 students, only 4 to 6 get A for Physical Chemistry - forget my lecturer's name already. So pyscho. Organic Chemistry?
*** Tired and sleepy.

A really untypical day today. It has been raining everyday, here in this small town. Days and nights, we could always witness nothing but only the downpour. Washed clothes are hardly dried because of this. Blame for not having a dryer for that, not the mad sky.

But not today though. At last we could see a little sunshine in the evening, for much longer. Coincidence or not coincidence, perhaps God doesn’t want my flight to be delayed tomorrow evening.

Suppose to be hanging out with friends today but all of them are busy and cannot make it. So, I was going out with my mom instead. After sending my brother off to school for his extra class, we went to KFC to have our meal. Mom ordered two plates of snack plate and it cost RM20.15. She paid. I was a bit silent at the moment. I am not sure why but I just have nothing to talk about. Mom started the conversation. Just talked only when she asked.

Went home, mom helped me to pack my stuff into the language. Clothes, food and stuff. I can say most of things was done by her. I was just helping to pick out my clothes from the cupboard and things that I need to bring.

Brought my pet dog to have a walk around the neighbourhood. He still doesn’t remember me though. I mean, he sees me but only sniffs. May shake his tail for a while but that’s it. For the next come back, may be I will become a total stranger to him.

All my brothers were back later. Then, I got to become loud again. Bully them. Smack them for no reason. Fight with them, for no reason.

Guess I just start to miss home.

Kate Winslet won!

Guess everyone knows her. If you know Titanic, surely you know her. If you don't know, I have no comment on that.

I didn't watch Golden Globe awards that day. So, frankly, I didn't know who get nominated and obviously, who won the title. I am not sure where I hear about this but some how I heard this actress won something on that night. So, today, I googled and also surf YouTube to search for the relevant videos. She won TWO awards: Best Actress for her performance in Revolutionary Road which features her and Leonardo Dicaprio and the movie is directed by her husband, Sam Mendes. Another award is Best Supporting Actress for the movie, "The Reader".


Really can't wait to watch this film. Leo and Kate is truly an ideal couple on screen.

Found this video. So sweet. In real world, they are just being best friends eventhough it will be so perfect if they are couple. Love them. =)

Long-lost Friends

Looking through my cupboard today and found this.

I think it should be "these". A pile of letters that I have kept for so many years. Since year 2001 until today. I still remembered when I have the time, I would have been reading all of them. Letters, greeting cards, birthday cards, friendship cards; all these were from my old classmates back in Gurun, Kedah. Am used to study there when I was in year 3 until year 5, in a chinese primary school, SJK (c) Choong Hwa, Gurun, Kedah, among the cluster school in the state.

3A, 1999

4A, 2000

I don't have picture when I was in year 5 since I left earlier. The quality of these photos are bad because I don't have the digital format of them. So, I digitize by taking photo of the photos. Haha...

It has been 8 years. Even though I only stay contact with one or two of them, I am not sure of what I read, they did miss and still ask about me but ironically, they didn't write to me. Guess my friend acts as a messenger for them to know my latest updates. SPM has over for a year, now. Surely everyone has their own roads to take. So, I am kind of determined to look for them again. I don't believe in the phrase, 'Friends, come and go..."

So, I googled search them, used friend-finders in Friendster and Facebook to look for them. Most of the time, it ended with disappointment. Through profile picture itself is not enough and I hardly can recognise. Plus, some of them may use fake name for their accounts.

Until one day though, I couldn't give up searching and finally in Friendster, I found a very familiar name and familar face. It's been 8 years. Things may change. Not sure whether he is one of them, so I messaged him.

2 weeks later, I saw his reply, his comment in my Friendster profile yesterday, and it is really him.
I am really happy to see that comment to appear in my profile. I myself really cannot forget him though because he always bullied me way back then. Well, I cried easily at that time. I am still the same guy.

A good start to meet everyone again in the near future.

Happy Ending

Browsing through my collection of songs in my laptop and find this one particular song that I never play. So, I just clicked it. The opening eventually hooks me, very nice intro into the whole song. It is a song by Mika, Happy Ending. Frankly, I didn't know much about this singer. Google-ing Mika online, found his profile. His vocal reminds me of James Blunt, the guy singing "You're Beautiful" and "1973".

The song is quite a sad one though, with all those lyrics embedded. It is like there is no more happy ending for them. Touching enough, and like the melody. The voice of backup singers is really an ideal combination with the lead singer. Hope you like it as much as I do. Just to share.

This is the way you left me,
I'm not pretending.
No hope, no love, no glory,
No Happy Ending.

Wake up in the morning, stumble on my life
Can't get no love without sacrifice
If anything should happen, I guess I wish you well
A little bit of heaven, but a little bit of hell

This is the hardest story that I've ever told
No hope, or love, or glory
Happy endings gone forever more
I feel as if I'm wasted
And I'm wastin' every day

This is the way you left me,
I'm not pretending.
No hope, no love, no glory,
No Happy Ending.
This is the way that we love,
Like it's forever.
Then live the rest of our life,
But not together.

2 o'clock in the morning, something's on my mind
Can't get no rest; keep walkin' around
If I pretend that nothin' ever went wrong, I can get to my sleep
I can think that we just carried on

This is the hardest story that I've ever told
No hope, or love, or glory
Happy endings gone forever more
I feel as if I'm wasted
And I'm wastin' every day

This is the way you left me,
I'm not pretending.
No hope, no love, no glory,
No Happy Ending.
This is the way that we love,
Like it's forever.
Then live the rest of our life,
But not together.

A Little bit of love, little bit of love
Little bit of love, little bit of love[repeat]

I feel as if I'm wasted
And I waste everyday

This is the way you left me,
I'm not pretending.
No hope, no love, no glory,
No Happy Ending.
This is the way that we love,
Like it's forever.
To live the rest of our life,
But not together.


If you feel there is no hope anymore, you shall let go and move on.
But, just to tell, sometimes good things do happen when you least expect it.
It is up to you whether you want to believe or otherwise.

*Yesterday I was having sore throat. Today, I am down with flu, slight fever, and cough, too. Wondering what will the bad news for tomorrow.
**It has been raining everyday, here in Bintulu. It is been so cold. I am craving for warmth.
***Going back to Uni, soon enough.

To someone it may concern:

Yes, I do cry.

I cried when a friend that I was trying to get close to betrayed me.
I cried when a close friend hurt me.
I cried when a friend didn't accept my apology.
I cried when I bid farewell to my family and friends, when loneliness strikes me.

Just to say, if you feel want to cry, just cry.
Don't keep everything inside.
You will definitely better after that, trust me.
Crying is not really a bad thing.
Crying doesn't mean you are weak.
Crying doesn't mean you are not strong.
It is just life, that's the way it is.
Even there are no tears, surely your heart is crying inside.
No tears doesn't mean you have a cold heart either.
Don't feel bad, it takes time.

I cry because I care.
I'll die if you don't care.

*I am not being emotional now, okay. I have the same dilemma too. Just be strong and stay strong. Even you are weak, pretend to be one.
**My blog website, my blog name: there's a reason word "smile" appears there. It is not random. With this, hope you have smiled.

Listen to this song when you have the time.

Tips to Lose Weight

This post isn't really giving you full tips to lose weight though. Just to say, I do get these tips from somewhere. I only highlight some of them. The one in brackets is my response.

1. Stop eating before your full. (how do you know that what you eat is essentially enough?)

2. Eat slowly/put your fork down between bites. (tend to eat very fast when hungry/wonder if that really helps)

3. Keep a sense of humour. (seriously?)

4. Eat with cutlery, not your fingers. (no more KFC, the spicy chicken at least)

5. Blue is an appetite suppressant. (I mean, blue colour)

6. Spicy foods that may speed up your metabolism, such as chilli. (no wonder I am so skinny)

7. Strip off in front of a full-length mirror every night. (book says, this is to motivate you to lose weight, somehow)

8. Find an exercise friend to keep you company, or a dog or an IPod. (sounds fun)

These are only few, the ones that I seldom come across.
And, wonder if there are any tips to gain weight?

Motivation to Success

Believe this or not, I get the following phrases from a calendar. How do you wish to have such calendar to motivate you everyday?

Only you can chart the course your life will take.


Never discourage anyone who continually makes progress, no matter how slow.

You must be single minded. Drive for one thing on which you have decided.

The courage to speak must be matched by the wisdom to listen.

You cannot escape the responsibilities tomorrow by evading them today.

A leader is one who dares to take the plunge while others hesitate.

Vision is the ability to see the storms in life to a place of calm.

Your biggest task is not to get ahead of others, but to surpass yourself.

The mind, like parachute, functions when only when open.

Success is the maximum utilization of the ability you have.

A champion needs a motivation above and beyond winning.

Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.

What have I done though? Accordance to the listing:
1. I am pretty confused now what is my real goal now.
2. I am easily get fed-up sometimes when I don't understand what I learn and eventually giving up.
3. Same as the first one. Confused.
4. I mostly just listening rather than speaking up. And this is so bad, I realise it.
5. I always postpone my work.
6. I often hesitate.
7. I can't see.
8. I always compare myself with others.
9. My mind is closed, most of the time.
10. Still not sure what my real ability is.
11. Good thing is: I do have motivation in me, and from others too.
12. I understand and I love peace. I hate conflicts.

From what you can see, I am not really eligible to achieve success, yet. Still have time to improve, I hope.


"Be grateful..."
"Get it over soon.."
"Not bad la..."
"Foundation only..."

Several responses that I received yesterday regarding my final exam result. Thank you, anyway.
I will be just fine. Okay for today, tomorrow, until the next final exam.

What is "Karma"?

Karma is the concept of "action" or "deed" in Indian religions understood as that which causes the entire cycle of cause and effect originating in ancient India and treated in Hindu, Jain, Sikh and Buddhist philosophies.

The philosophical explanation of karma can differ slightly between traditions, but the general concept is basically the same. Through the law of karma, the effects of all deeds actively create past, present, and future experiences, thus making one responsible for one's own life, and the pain and joy it brings to him/her and others. The results or 'fruits' of actions are called karma-phala. In religions that incorporate reincarnation, karma extends through one's present life and all past and future lives as well.


As soon as I have done with my previous post, final exam is out, finally. Just to say, I don't really care about how much I got for my result. I only care because it drops! I thought I have worked enough for this final exam but the outcome really disappointed me. May be is not hard enough, I guess. Will get it over soon though.

Still upset.


Self-Reflection of Second Semester

About one week to go, a new semester will begin. This time will be for real. The real challenge. A whole new studies life. No more foundation. No more basic studies. It is all new. It is all exciting, hope so. It is CHEMICAL ENGINEERING.

Before proceeding any further, allow me to do some reflection of my last semester. I will be just straight forward of what I am about to say. Not intended to offend anyone, these are just purely my opinion.

From his accent, obviously he is a Chinese beneath his Malay name. I think every English lecturer is taking the similar course in lecturing, I think. Sense of humour seems to be a must in English lecture. He likes to scream though. A variety of intonation. Not bad. At least we gain something from his lectures.

Students will say strict teachers are bad because they always scold you if you don’t hand in your work on time. Students will say lazy teachers are good because they will less likely demand on your homework. Irony, eh? Well, these are what students interpret. Anyway, this semester, my English tutor was a strict one. If the tutorial period is 2 hours, she will really make full use of those 2 hours, no extra, no less. Even so, sometimes she loves to tell the stories of her life to us. It is good to hear those experiences though, but sometimes it took too much time telling those. Sad to say, I hardly learn anything. I can sense my English starts to fall apart since entering this Uni. Think that they have to do something about it, or maybe I am the one who has to do something about it. At least this tutor is better than the one in previous semester.

CALL Lab (Computer-Assisted Language Learning Laboratory):
From our previous experience, have to say, we hardly attended this lab.

I would say this is the most anticipated lecture that I ever attended throughout my Foundation studies life. Favourite subject is one thing. A good lecturer is another. I am really grateful to have her as my lecturer for this semester. She is really dedicated in what she does. Hardly to see other lecturers do what she does. My friend said she like a mother. With little sense of humour some more, you can’t hate her.

Pretty good tutor but wondering why, sometimes I feel lazy to attend her class. May be it is too early in the morning, I think. But, I do learn from her. That is most vital.

For this subject, you couldn’t have guessed what kind of lecturer he or she will be. Don’t judge from the first day. Must attend first few classes and from there, you would know. Then, can plan to skip her classes before getting barred from examinations. I am serious.
She doesn’t lecture well. She just reads from the slides and she considered it’s done. I can do that, too. Sometimes when she solves some questions in front of us, she doesn’t realize she has made some mistakes. Misleading. More confusion. She will scold us, for nothing, sometimes. Perhaps she gets fed up as lecture hall isn’t full as it should be, most of the time. Towards the end of semester, I skipped most of her classes, and not even attended her replacement classes because attending her lectures is equivalent to not attending at all. Even I went to her classes; I would have my ear phone in my ears. Rather listening to Leona Lewis or Celine Dion singing. Of course, I sat at the back.
Good thing is; she is actually good too, in her personality. Perhaps she is inexperience in lecturing, I guess. But, even so, I wouldn’t take my words back because those are the truth.

I have no much comment on this one because my tutor herself is still learning. So, can’t say anything. Didn’t learn much as well.

I don’t like our demonstrator. *zip my mouth*

Comes from Pakistan instead of India with that slang. Scolded my, twice. I don’t hate him for that. I have to admit it is my fault as well. He is kind of strict but monotonous. Keep on repeating the same thing again and again. The strictest lecturer of all, I think.

Good Lord. I never understand things come out from his mouth, not a single word.

Seriously, I think the demonstrator really have to work on his speech.

ICIS (Introduction to Computer and Information System)
She doesn’t just merely read from the slides though. She also does some explanations and elaborations. Maybe because I am an IT dumb, so I hardly to understand. And, have to admit, it is a bit boring sometimes but when it comes to marking, she is really strict. Not lenient at all.

Okay, at least I learn something.

Guess that’s about all. These comments are sincere enough and I am not being partial in making these. Just to voice out.

A little summary:
Best Lab: ICIS LAB

Best Lecturer: MADAM HANITA DAUD (Engineering Mathematics)
Best Tutor: Engineering Mathematics Tutor(forgot her name)


To summarise my foundation studies life:
Best Lecture of all: ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS LECTURE (Second semester)
Best Tutorial of all: PHYSICS TUTORIAL (First Semester)
Best Lab: PHYSICS LAB (First semester)


With this, my foundation life has ended, and still, waiting for my Final Exam result.

Nervous and worried.

What happen if men write?

Discover this when I was reading Reader's Digest. It is kind of hilarious. Let see if the readers would have seek advice from men. Enjoy reading.


Dear Uncle, my son is obsessed with Manchester United. He missed his father's funeral to watch the final on TV. When we come home from the cemetery, he was dancing with joy over a goal. It was most inappropriate and the mourners were deeply shocked.
Despairing widow

Dear Despairing Widow, you have a serious problem here. No person in his right mind would celebrate a goal that was so obviously offside. The ref must have TOTALLY blind. Ask your son to check the action replays and he will see the final was STOLEN from AC Milan.


Dear Uncle, 20 minutes after my son Jason went to school, a message popped up for him on the family computer. His teacher wants to meet him after school at a hotel. She signed it "smoochykins". He is 17, and she is 30. What should I do?
Concerned Mother

Dear Concerned Mother, I understand your concern. Instant message program should automatically log out after 5 minutes of inactivity. Upgrade to version 7.0 to prevent this problem recurring.


Dear Uncle, my husband bought a home security video system last year. I came home early yesterday and noticed it showed two people kissing in the back garden. Although the picture was fuzzy and grainy, I realised it was my husband and my neighbour. We have been married for 18 years. What should I do?
Broken-hearted Wife

Dear Broken-hearted Wife, this problem is easily fixed. Use a high impedance cable, set the resolution "High Definition" and get an accelerated graphic card. Fuzzy and grainy images will be a thing of the past, and you will get a crystal clear images from your back garden.

School Reopens

School reopens today. First day of attending school has always been very exciting to me. I always love first day. With all those registration fees to be paid, elect the new class monitor, and stuff. Very funny, eh? Just some sweet memories. Really miss those time. University life, surely will be more exciting yet challenging but high school life will never be forgotten, too.

Being chosen as school prefect since form 2, the life of being a student has been more fun. I mean, skipping classes for duties, spotcheck et cetera. In University, think that I won't have to do such things. Still, back in Uni, I did skipped lectures for the last two semesters. I am not being lazy, okay. Even though I skipped, I still hold my responsiblity as a student. Back in high school, after PMR, life has been more hectic with all the 10 subjects that I have to take for SPM. It was exciting, though. I saw lots of students seem to give up already as they couldn't catch up but there were also some struggling to improve too. Me? I still maintain. XD

How I wish I could turn back time to experience those time again. I like school.
Well, all I can do now is to appreciate my studies life, cherish every moment of it before entering the harsh world out there. Sound scary.

Anyway, I would like express my utmost gratitude to all the teachers. Without you, I may not be what I am now. Thank you, teachers.

Expected future posts:
1. Final exam result (kinda really nervous now)
2. Self Reflection of Second Semester, End of Foundation Life
3. Going back to UTP (real soon. Start to feel the sadness of leaving)


A friend of mine told me that I have studious look.

this photo was taken in my old class back in high school. am sitting at the seat where I used to. I sat at the front row where most of the guys sat at the back.

What do you think?

Seriously? I think I look like an ordinary student with ordinary achievement. A guy next door will soon grow up, has a family (if) and leads a moderate life. May be just a typical engineer. Nothing special. I may excel in studies, this is just because I work a bit harder but not hard enough. I mean, I didn't wear glasses which adds the nerdy and studious look. And now wondering why I crap about this here?

Taman Tumbina Bintulu

Before I continue with this post, for those who are not familiar with Bintulu, guess you never hear of what Taman Tumbina is. Just a slight introduction. Taman Tumbina is a mini zoo which houses animals and plenty of plants. "Tum" comes from the Malay word, "Tumbuhan" which means plants while "bina" derives from the word, "binatang" which means animals. It has been founded since 1991. For more information, click here.


We planned to go Taman Tumbina on my brother's birthday, which was on Friday to celebrate his big day. But due to some unforeseen circumstances, we just went there yesterday. Anyway, it has been fun to spend the whole evening with him and other brothers and of course, tired.

Reached there around 1.00 pm, our first stop was the Butterfly Farm.

Just to say, plants grow much faster than the butterflies. Hardly can see any flying butterflies there. Pretty nice view though.

After that, we walked around there. Just let the pictures do the talking.


Cactus with a flower bud

Ostrich (sitting)

Ostrich (standing)

Ostrich has only 2 toes? Never know.

Suppose there should be ostrich-riding activity but I didn't see anyone was working there.

Sleeping tiger

Deer, closes his eyes and *blueks*


Mini chicken caught in action...


Proudly to present you, the pride of Sarawak



Since Taman Tumbina is built across the hill, walking there as if we were doing jungle-tracking at the same time with all those hilly path. Plus, it is surrounded by forest. Really tired, I must say.

After 2 hours, we left the place and heading to Tanjung Batu nearby, the beach to have some food.


Rojak buah

Sotong kangkung - my favourite


While waiting for parents to come, we went to the beach to have a look.

Guess what? After a while, it started to rain heavily yet parents haven't arrived. We were caught in the rain, with umbrellas in our hands. With some blowing wind, just make thing worst.

Camera in the hand, manage to take photo, of myself.

Around 5.30pm, we were home. Tired and almost caught some cold.

It's been fun day.


School reopens tomorrow. All my brothers will be attending their usual class but I will be left at home. Will be going back in 2 weeks. Miss the time I used to spend in school. I like school.

Before ending this post, have something to share. I was flipping through exercise books of my old high school and saw this:

My name is listed again.

Happy Birthday, My Brother

He's the second.

Born on 2 January 1992.

The only glasses wearer in the family.

We called him, ALOK.

Not fat, not thin.
Not short, not tall.

Loves to sing, I think.

Can dance, at least better than his big brother.

Can cook, seriously.

Sometimes, a bit hot-tempered.

Has soft side too.

A bit sensitive.
(At least not as emotional as his big brother is)

Just realize,

I Miss 2008

A pretty pathetic opening for the very first post of this new year, isn't it? This is just what I feel now.

I was Facebooking few moments ago and saw this, the feed in my profile.

Do you notice on the date displayed? It is now ../../2008, if you get what I mean. Wondering why, it just strikes through my feeling when I saw it. Was a bit emotional for while. Guess I have to face that 2008 has really gone. I think I miss the moments that I used to have in 2008.

*Let Love Lead The Way by Spice Girls is playing when I am typing this...
You may be weak, but you're strong
Don't you give up if

If you keep holding on
You'll never be wrong
Just close your eyes 'cause it lies deep in your heart....

It's kind of late to wish everyone new year since new year has started more than 12 hours ago. It is still 1 Jan, anyway.
