I Used To Write Better

Was just reading through my old posts and I realised that there has been a very obvious shift in terms of the usage  and diversity of words in my posts. While I used to write quite cohesively, with the use of sophiticated words (heh heh if I may say so), my recent posts mostly consists of pictures and crap English. Damn


Pffft..Ode To Singledom

It took me such a long time to finally understand the merits of singledom.

Before I came here my mum aunts etc kept asking me too ‘look out for good guys’ lol I don’t know why they are so kancheong…I am not even 20 yet afterall. So anyway…of course that was quite programmed in my mind..I mean, new place, new people…something could indeed happen. And when nothing did, of course there was the frusfration and the helplessness and the embarassment. And in an ironic twist, it took me the observation of an ex and his girlfriend to finally, FINALLY understand that being in a relationship isn’t all it’s hyped up to be, when in my mind being in a relationship is the best and I always lamented about singledom even when my coupled friends tell me that if they could choose they would want to be single now.

When I see how he treats her sometimes I get quite upset…she is such a good girl and deserves so much more…so many people think so. It hurts me to see her apologizing for things that are not her fault, or always being so forgiving, or always acting different in front of us and in front of him. Sigh it is none of my concern and I’m sorry for being kaypo, but she is my close friend and I just do not enjoy looking at her upset because of him.

Seriously though, I ask myself how the hell did I ever like/love him whenever he treats her crappily. Could it have been the looks? Now I feel that he was so vain and way too proud of the looks. Could it have been the wisecracks? They just sound annoying and discriminating now. I reckon I finally can see him for who he is now that I’m not blinded too…but maybe I’m too biased now too. Sigh…who needs a boyfriend anyway..sure it’s sweet and aww and I love you baby and kissing is fun and so is making out but I reckon trading that for freedom and going out with whoever I want and doing whatever I want and not need to report to anyone is awesome too. One thing crappy about being single is feeling like the fifth wheel whenever you are with your coupled friends though.

Anyway, these are just my thoughts that I very foolishly published to the whole freaking world wtf. So sorry if I’ve offended anyone


Emo & Angsty Post =(

Everyone’s here. No plans for holidays. And the reason I haven’t hung out with those poeple who came from far away is because I know I will feel like the extra wheel. And she keeps pang poay ki me which pisses me off. I really care for them and appreciate them but when they do some stuff it makes me feel like they don’t value me at all.

Fuck it

I think I have PMS. sorry =(


New House!

Hoho I should be doing my VETS1018 assignments now eek..but I’ve been bitten by the blogging bug again whee~

Update: I started this draft on tuesday and I have since finished those assignments muahaha

So yeah…been through a lot of shit regarding the whole accomodation thing. At first it was the lack of any houses that we could book online that scared us. And then we finally managed to get a lease under Elite Real Estate Agency for a house at Highland Tce. In retrospect it was foolish of us to get bonded to a place without actually inspectinmg it at first…because when we first reached there it was hell. The house was not really what we expected..it was underground, small and quite dark..and to add to that, it didn’t have electricity supply at all wtf. The first week there we managed to survive thanks to Huda and Ciktie who let us stay with them at Hawken Drive….seriously felt so paise cos initially we planned to stay there for like 2 nights until we moved in to our own place..manatau we ended up staying there for almost a week! Anyway, although we grew to like the smallish underground at Highland Tce, it came with its own set of problems like kaypo neighbours, bad reception for phones and internet and the fact that it was like a hidden house…as it the building has been renovated so that it has 3 units…1 on ground level and 2 on lower level…so our house was like the hidden secret one…if people walked pass it they would have thought that it was just 1 main unit.

Anyway…supposedly the kaypo neighbour went to report to Brisbane City Council about the house…and when City Council came to check..it was found that our house did not comply with the Fire Safety Regulations. Apparently, a building can only have a total of 5 people and our’s had 9 (3 people in each unit). Therefore, we had to move out…seriously felt like shit that time. Can you imagine trying to find a suitable place to live in the middle of term? Thank God for Shen and Koo…they seriously saved us haha.<3  We were so angry at the real estate agent and the owner of the house…if it was not compliant with fire safety regulations then why did they rent it out to so many people in the first place, right? So unscrupulous. And when we went to Uni’s Student Accomodation Services to ask about our rights regarding this issue it seems that it is not the real estate agent’s fault and that we coulnd’t get back any compensation. total wtf right? So yeah…totally rugi on our bond.

We found a place at Indooroopilly though…and I think it’s a blessing in disguise..This new place is sooo much better although we are paying the same price as the old one. The only thing is that we have to travel every morning to uni.

Pictures of the old house:

Living room cum dining area cum Shen’s study area

Kitchen cum place where washing machine is…very weird la the structure…as in when you walk into our unit the first place you walk into is the kitchen haha

Toilet…love the lights

My old room ahem..it was quite dark la cos sorta underground and there was only a small window..sounds quite sad right? But I did like it last time la…had a hugeeee built-in closet but no mirror

And now *drumroll* pictures of the new house!!!

Ahem first thing that greets you when you enter our apartment is the shoes haha…girls love shoes and there’s no denying that =D

living room and dining area. theme is dark wood and leather sofas…our pride and joy though, is the flat screen tv haha (maybe only Shen and I feel this way cos Koo rarely watches tv lol). Seriously, the tv is so canggih that it has a built-in DVD player and it has a USB dock where you can just plug in your ipod or pendrive and play music hehe. We haven’t figured out how to play movies directly from pendrives yet though. Also, the reception of tv channels here is wayyyy better cos probably this one does not need those antenna thingies…I dunno hehe. Oh yeah…we have 2 air-conditioners too…1 in the living room and another in Shen and Koo’s room. Also, we have ceiling fans (haha I know this is like no big deal in Malaysia…but you would be surprised to find out that the majority of houses here do not have ceiling fans)

Kitchen =D

With oven and microwave included. But the one time I tried to bake potatoes in the oven I failed horribly ahem…cos after an hour or so they were still cold…and I haven’t tried since then ehe.

main balcony with another table and 6 chairs

my room hehe. It’s comparatively smaller than the old one but wayyy nicer. I have my own balcony too but I don’t use it la..The mirrors are the sliding doors to my closet

Hehe budak quilt cover set…cos these kiddy types are the cheapest. My pillow says ‘Girls Rock’ =.= However, I have found out that most of my Malaysian friends here use the kiddy ones too haha…so maybe there’s no need to be embarassed haha

Ahem…I so rarely study…but these are my books lol. No more photocopying whole books like what we used to do in INTEC due to super strict copyright laws here so we had to buy them =/ Apparently, for some books not related to Veterinary Science it’s much cheaper to get them from Malaysia. For example, I think the BIOS Instant Notes for BIOC1011 cost $80 here whereas it’s only RM66.60 in Malaysia…But I only bought the Veterinary Dictionary, Dissection of the Dog and Wheater’s Functional Histology…if I need the others I’ll just borrow from the library…something which I haven’t done yet too…ehe. Shhh….but I think for the whole BIOC1011 I am completely blur =/

My toilet…hehehe my own bathroom aite =D Cos Shen and Koo share the masterbedroom and it has an ensuite bathroom so this one’s all mine except when we do our laundry. Yup, I have my own bath too but I just shower la…don’t wanna waste water haha.

So yeah…that’s my new house at Indooroopilly…not bad right haha

Here’s a picture of our resident turtle Titi Song Hui Ching

LMAO XD


Sien…Boh Tian

Wokay…here’s the thing…you know how excited I was a few days ago saying that I would move in to our new house etcetc?

Well..the thing is…we did move in but the house doens’t have electricity! WTF…I am dead serious. We moved in on Monday with the help of Shu Ning, Swee Kee, Danny and Kai Xiang. Manatau when we reached there was no electricity at all! We then walked back to Elite Real Estate Agency at Hawken Village and the person said that they would get it settled on that day. Well, Monday came and went and when we came back from Indooroopilly at night it was pitch black so we had to borrow a torch light from Swee Kee and go back and pack our stuff and walk all the way back to the senior’s house again. Kak Huda is awesome by the way! Not many people can be so tolerant and kind and patient =) ❤

Repeat cycle 4 times. Yup, this has been going on for so long. I’m sure those people at Hawken Village St Lucia are already used to seeing 3 Asian girls walking up from Hawken Drive to Highland Tce in the morning carrying bags and walking back down again in the evening,

Finally, today the real estate guy asked his friend who is an electrician to hook us up with a generator. Yeah, a typical oh-so-noisy generator. But the thing is, our house finally had electricity! But the joy was short-lived…about 2 hours or so? Cos at 7 a couple who was our neighbour came and knocked on our door and told us that it was very very very noisy and in suburbs like St Lucia you can’t be noisy after 7 (unlike Malaysia’s 12am huh?) They told us that if we still didn’t have electricity we could find them and they would help us complain. So here we are again..at Huda’s house…we have been sleeping here every night since Saturday. I feel oh-so-paiseh >.< but we really don’t have a choice.

The thing is, I don’t understand how hard it is to contact an electricity company and ask them to come hook us up with electricity. I never expected myself to say this, but I’m sure Malaysia’s TNB would be 78979878 times more efficient =.= In Aussie we had to find the real estate agent, and then they had to contact the agent for the electricity company who then had to contact the company. Geez..what’s with the many many channels???

Oh by the way, you know my Aussie number +610430378936? Well, it’s not mine anymore…that’s cos I transferred it to a girl from Taylor’s who is in UQ too. And why would I not want such a good capped plan that even includes a phone? Well I’m moving to Gatton (85km west of Brisbane) next year as the vet school is relocating there next year and my contract for 3 (both phone plan and mobile broadband) lasts 2 years. Apparently, Gatton is super ulu (WHY?????????? I already feel that St Lucia is too peaceful for my liking and I have to go to an even more ulu place?????) *sob* and 3 doens’t have good coverage there. I would still be able to talk and text there but through Telstra that 3 automatically taps in. Whatever. I was super worried I called back home and asked my parents to come online and we video called and I cried and cried and cried and cried T.T cos I felt so foolish. However, in my defence when I asked the people working at 3 Indooroopilly whether 3 has coverage at Gatton the person said yes.

Anyway…I worried for quite some time until I met a Singaporean senior who told me to chillex and just continue using it and worry about it later. Well, I had the intention to do so..but yesterday a girl who was from Taylor’s told me that she would be willing to get my whole account transferred to her (phone plan and mobile broadband) and I thought ‘well, since someone wants both I’ll just settle it la’. Oh probably wondering why anyone would want my used-for-a few-days thingy? That’s cos my phone plan is a promo thingy whereby I pay $19 per month for the first 12 months instead of the usual $29. I happened to get that deal on the last day of the promo haha. So whoever gets mine saves too. So I met the Taylor’s girl at UQ just now and we called 3 care to settle it. We talked with the 3 personel for more than an hour =.= I’ll still be billed this month but she has already paid me cash. Just hope that there are no screw ups and that the following bills will be billed to her bank account instead of mine.

So I no longer have a phone nor do I have internet =.= Help!!!!!

I am using back my basic Nokia phone that I used for my secondary Maxis number back when I was at INTEC. The phone just has all the basic functions. I regret giving my better phone to Bro =.=

I’m using Optus prepaid now..don’t know what’s the number yet but will inform you guys soon =) Optus is freaking expensive but it has better coverage (yes, even in ulu places). Now I just worry how I am supposed to get internet =(

Le sigh


Homeless

Am homeless in Brisbane thus far. The feeling really sucks. Sigh

I’m so envious of those students in Melbourne and Sydney cos they can just book online. But oh no not for Brisbane. For Brisbane you have to actually be there for inspection etc. Well I’m here, not there, capishe?

Good thing my cousin’s aunt is there (no my cousin’s aunt doesn’t equal to my aunt cos she’s from his other side of the family. Anyway.) and she helped Shen, Koo and I check out a house at Sandford Street. It was quite promising, other than problems with the water (Aunt J said that when it rained the water didn’t recede fast enough, so there was a high probability of floods). We planned to take a 3-months-lease and we were in the midst of getting all the documents ready when I found out that it has just been rented =((((

The house that got away

The bathroom that got away

The room that got away

Boohoo I hate being homeless..should at least have temporary accomodation what, at least for a week or so. But we don’t even have that =(((( Ah sponsors please help us =(((


I Wish I Had Perfect Vision

I’ve been wearing spectacles since I was 10 *gasp* so that’s like almost half of my whole existance. I guess it’s weird that I would lament about it NOW seeing as I had so long to get used to it. And I did get use to it..it’s just I can’t help but feel life would be much better without having to deal with this.

Okay honestly, attractive people don’t wear speactacles (Johnny Depp does but he is Johnny Depp after all lol). The only models who wear specs are models advertising for spectacles. Aargh the list goes on…people look much better without specs (I’m not the kind of person who knows how to rock their spectacles..or those that wear awesome cool spectacles that make them look even better), they can play sports better (no fear of breaking them..and let’s not even talk about swimming =/), they don’t become helpless without spectacles, they can wear those oh-so-chic oversized sunnies that I cravecravecrave, it’s so much easier to make out without spectacles in the way etc.

Yes before you say anything, I have heard of this little invention called the contact lense lol. I’ve even tried them in Form 1 to disastrous results. My cornea was scratched =(. I tried the trial pack then and failed on the very last day lol..talk about unlucky. But I’ll be the first person to admit that I am not disciplined. At all. I’ve fallen asleep because I was too tired without removing make up, brushing my teeth or washing my face first. So contact lenses would not be the best for me.

What about LASIK? I don’t mind seeing as the risks are not that high (there are definitely risks though…talk about ‘ai sui mai mia’ choichoichoi) But Dad says like if in the future I get long-sightedness and stuff I’ll have to get spectacles too. And my cornea will be thinner that normal peoples’ and if there are any complications in the future *touch wood* then it would be more risky etcetc.

Boohoo

Rant over.

I had another new pair of spectacles made (did contemplate about contacts but Dad reminded of awful past experience lol…sigh I really wanna be able to wear oversized sunnies) because Dad said it’s better to have one made now and bring the old pair as the spare one since it’s gonna be oh-so-expensive in Aussie. If not for this I wouldn’t have done ot cos I’m very attached to my candy-coloured-frames haha. The new one has photochromic lenses that change colour according to light intensity (cos I hatehatehate glaring sun especially when I’m in the car around 5pm when the sun’s almost setting) and the frame is from Swatch (lol yeah both Mum and I have this Swatch thing going on hehe). Not bad for 220 bucks =)

Old pair

New pair

I still think the old one has more personality haha.

Ok hopefully I’ll learn to love this pair too lol

ps/ Aargh damn tao tia accomodation. Hopefully Aunt J can help us =)


AARGH!!! WTFBBQDVD

I’m fucking freaking fucking pissed.

Did my medical check-up back in December and I was supposed to go to General Hospital today for an appointment with the doctor at 10am to finalise the whole thing. My plan was to get the final thingy and then go to Tesco’s post office to send that plus the Borang Keselamatan to Putrajaya by Pos Ekspres.

Manatau when I went there at 9.30 I was kept waiting until 11+ cos apparently my results for Hep B were not to be found. So the person at the counter asked me to ‘tunggu sekejap’ while the lab people tried to find it.

So I waited

and waited

and waited

and waited

and I heard ‘tunggu sekejap’ so many times I swear if I hear it again I’ll go berserk.

and I felt guilty for making Ah Kong and Ah Ma wait with me =(

and then *jeng jeng jeng* it seems when they ambil my darah last time they only took 1 vial and that vial was used to test for HIV. So basically I waited for nothing and I had to go and take another vial and wait for 7 freaking more days (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). I told her I had to send it in 1 month before departure so she said she’ll call me as soon as the results are out. But I think by that time I’ll already be in KL.

Fuck Shit-Ass Sheesh


Perverts

I don’t mean to sound like a racist- the last thing I need now is racism, seeing as I’m going to a place not full of Asians soon- but I have a really bad impression of male foreign workers in Malaysia.

I was at Gama on New Year’s Day..God know what I was doing there. Seriously, Gama is freaking lau ia and there were so many people. As I was walking from the escalator, a Bangladeshi walked pass me and his hand brushed my upper tigh. Fine..maybe I overreacted…I mean, it all fairness, it could have been he did it accidentally or whatever. Garn…but I felt violated. And I didn’t do anything except throw dirty looks at him.

Another case happened when I was in the KTM with NGO and Shen, going back to Shah Alam from Genting. It was rush hour so the train was freaking packed with loads of people…to the extent that it was so stuffy it was difficult to breathe. And then, we reached a stop and some people were trying to get out. I was standing in the middle of the aisle so I moved to the side to give way for the other people to get out. Suddenly my ass was grabbed (more like caressed wtf) by this Indonesian worker sitting at the aisle seat. I was so shocked I didn’t know what to do except glare at him.

Blah…my best offensive is apparently glaring. Sure, people teach us girls, if anything happens to you, knee the attackers balls, gauge their eyeballs etcetc. In theory it’s ok…but God forbid we have to resort to the practical in any situation. And even if we have to *touch wood*, doens’t mean that the state of mind at that moment allows us to.

Frankly, what happened to me wasn’t that big a deal. I mean, I have a few friends who have been flashed at. And another unlucky girl I know got her face splashed (? I don’t know any better word) with what looked suspiciously like semen on her way to school.

Fucking perverts!!! Rot in hell
