s0hp0h’s addiction

Omg, s0hp0h’s addicted.

Actually, was is more appropriate.

How many people actually look at the title and think s0hp0h is addicted to drugs? Dun like dat la, although s0hp0h got planned to do drugs initially, and even got an offer to do it, s0hp0h resisted the temptation and went into doing teeth instead. So now s0hp0h’s a happily dental student, not a pharmacy student, so there’s no associations with drugs, for now.

Actually over all these years, allow me to mention almost 20 years – trying to familiarise myself with this term, but it’s doesn’t seem to help much, anyway, I was addicted to quite a number to things. So, here comes the big reveal of s0hp0h’s dark secrets, ok fine, not SO dark looo:-

  1. GunBound: Ya, I think most people will know what it is, for those who don’t know, it’s just an on9 game where you kill other people by shooting them. Don’t remember how I got hooked, from my brother I think, anyway, s0hp0h just indulged herself in GunBound and pulled suip0h down the boat, wahhaha, victimised suip0h. Even so, suip0h loved it and together with s0hp0h, we play play and play all day and night during the holidays. We dare not to play in higher lvls, but just beginners, in fear of being coined as noobies, knowing too well that we WILL with our chicken-skills. Even so again, suip0h n s0hp0h always call each other noob anyway when we missed a shot, and funnier, those ppl with ‘chicken’ lvls, unaware that they’re actually crocodile hiding under a chicken’s feather, kicking our ass like crazy.
  2. The Sims: This is another game, but it’s not online. I don’t know why I got addicted in to playing it, I guess my name explains some of it, s0hp0h do s0hthings. It’s just manipulating those poor Sims, ‘wake up, sleep, eat, go toilet etc’ and cheating simoleans all the time by typing in ‘rosebud’ and lavish my dear sims with expensive expensive purchases. That being said, give me this game now, and thank you very much, I’ll be hooked in minutes.
  3. Meteor Garden: I can still remember those form 5 times with TAG and what we always do when our teacher ponteng class is sing sing sing. Not all F4 songs la, not big fan of them, but another ridiculous thing, we had G4. G4 is what you might ask, no, it’s not the HK special police force, it’s just a ripped off version of F4. We were s0h enough to, ekhem, do s0h things lo. Those who had seen MG will noe that F4 in it had this ‘red paper thingy’ that they give to ppl they don’t like, as a warning sign. And we imitated it, made our very own ‘hong zhi tiao’ but ours is just paper torn out from our exercise books. Then we gave it to our first victim, Alex Poi. His reaction was funny, when he saw the paper, he was like WTF and just threw it out. -.-” our masterpiece, GONE down the bin in secs. Also, we always quote ‘Dao Ming Shi’s’ ru guo dao qian you yung de hua, na yau jing cha lai gan ma? (pardon my bad pinyin) which rougly translate to if sorry is effective, then why we need policemen for?
  4. Candies: During those tuition times for SPM, I always buy a lot of candies and sweets to get me through the class, hopefully in awake state. That usually doesn’t work, which explains why I will pinch myself during classes in hoping to wake myself up (taught by Lai Kuan) – and it wasn’t a good idea, leave u with severe bruise marks. But that didn’t stop me from buying loads n loads of sweets, finishing them in just one day. I can really chew a lot, imagine the amount of sweets I ate in just one day is more than the amount I would eat for the whole last year, even two years. Sounds very kua jiong right? Actually the truth is for some reason, they don’t have proper candy shops in Adelaide. CEH~
  5. Comics: I used to love comic very very much, even up until today I believe, but not chance only. My brother bought a lot of comics and that’s how I started reading it. I even liked Dragon Ball at one point of my life! I have my very own Detective Conan collection, which is still going on, although I stopped reading ages ago. I just ask my brother to buy them for me, cos I wanna collect the whole set. Wahahhaha.
  6. Longan with concentrated milk: TAG always had lunch before tuition class in PTU, so my regular drink is this lo. I discovered it from Uncle Jimmy, the owner himself, cos he was drinking it, so I requested the same one. I think it is not actually on the menu, something he just made up. Haha, it’s basically longan drink plus concentrated milk. Sounds disgusting? It’s really YUMMY. I had it for like one year.
  7. Eating ‘keropoks’ in class: TAG influenced me into doing it cos I was such a ‘guai’ student, why will I do that right? They LO, blame them, haha, until someone actually just remember I like to eat in class, sigh… Anyway, keropok=chips/snacks and in my school canteen, they sell it in small packets, cost 30 cents only. So, we will buy it, hide it underneath the drawer, suip0h’s on her big pencil box, and eat eat eat when teacher is not facing us, i.e. marking something, writing on the blackboard, concentrating on the elite students sitting on the front rows. FYI, TAG sat at the very very BACK row. But FYI again, it doesn’t mean TAG are s0h animals OK cos intelligence don’t rate that way! (although s0hp0h is obviously s0h oledi for SURE, eh, but dun discriminate la k, one bad seed don’t make the whole population rotten)
  8. Maggi mee: Who doesn’t like Maggi mee leh, so I can be pardoned for this sin. The amount of MSG in it is great but nonetheless, nothing like dat ever stopped me from eating it, for eg chocolates (M&M’s – more than 1/2 of it is sugar I realised), chips etc. I seldom eat Maggi now, but still eat whenever I can, haha. One peculiar info, a friend of mine eats chicken flavoured maggi mee without soup. In other words, dry/’gon lou’ version. How? U cooked the noodles as usual and just sieve it, pouring out the water and spread the Chicken flavouring all over it and EAT. Should try it sometime!
  9. -Edited- Sigh, once again, I’d totally forgotten bout s0hp0h. Wat a bad s0hp0h I am really.

Sigh, as ppl get older, the brain really gets worse. I don’t remember anything else anymore. So, that’s it for now, I’ll try to update the list next time, which I most certainly doubt I ever will.

Never forget to appreciate

My cousin just bought the Oprah 20th Aniversary DVDs. It’s like a special edition and maybe most of you guys haven’t even heard bout her? She’s Oprah Winfrey I’m talking bout.

She has this talk show and talks almost about everything. Her first show was almost 20 years ago, cos it debuted on the same fateful year which I was born, yes, which really means, I am going to be 20 soon, well not THAT soon (perky will so LIKE this fact).

Anyway, my age is totally irrelevant la ok.

The important thing is anyone who has a chance to watch the show, probably knew how significant the show can really be. Just watching the first DVD made me produce ‘wonton’s.. within few minutes.. oh well, maybe it’s just me. Haha, others maybe won’t. Anyway, how emotional I am is totally irrelevant too.

Why I and most of aunties like the show hor, many people who don’t know it, haven’t seen it before, will crack their heads thinking. Not that the fact I am obssessed with an aunty-show has any relevance either.

Since I start watching it hor, I really start to feel how lucky I am la. Really de. I especially like the part where the show talked about some really ‘geng’ people. I don’t mean the geng as in Tom Cruise geng, btw I don’t think he’s geng, ah doesn’t matter. The geng I am mentioning hor, is how some really unfortunate ppl, after what they’ve gone through in life, can still pick their body up and stand with their very own two feets. It’s probably very unconvincing the way I say it, but anyhow, I’m trying my best to deliver the ‘geng-ness’ here la.

Those unfortunate ppl I meant, is like people with terminal illness, people who suffered misfortunes. I knoe what u r thinking, like these things happen everywhere and everyday in this world, sadly but true, but that’s not the point la. They are some really cham ppl out there like this girl, don’t know if u guys heard of her before, her name is Jacquei S. She was involved in a horrific accident, which don’t know lucky or unlucky, she survived burns that covered 60% of her body. The accident totally destroyed her cheerful looks, her skin, her eyes, her everything literally, but not her spirit. Looking at her just totally made me feel awful and the fact that she has the courage to live on, is reli geng. I can’t even start to imagine myself in her shoes as I think if that is me, I would have well ended my life. Choy, touch wood.

That’s why u know how we always say, how lucky some ppl are to have this this and that, but how many people actually also think about how many unfortunate people there is in this world leh? So, we shud be really grateful and start to appreciate what we have in life. I know this is a boring post, but u noe what? I’m appreciating my ability to be able to see n type n read ok!

Friday is here!!

Yeah, Friday is here.

Ignoring the fact that how ANNOYED, IRRITATED, PISSED I am this afternoon.

I usually have three lessons on Friday, a 3 hour Bio lab, 1 hour Bio tute, & 1 hour Dental Health Science tute. I was elated when my lecturer announced that there’s nothing scheduled for Bio on this first week back, cos that means I only have one DHS tute! *grin*

So, I slept in as much as I can.. until 11 something I think, wahhaa, s0hp0h really like to sleep a lot, like seriously, a lot. On my previous holidays which is two weeks, I spent approximately one week’s time just on sleeping. You didn’t see it wrongly la, no need rub your eyes, it’s true. Lucky lucky s0hp0h!

So hor, I caught the bus to the city where my uni is located, took about 30 minutes. I live quite far from Uni lo, unlucky s0hp0h. But also good la, cos on the days where I need to do some pre-preperation for my subjects, I can do it all in the bus. Wahaha, including breakfast.

Ok, went to the city really early, like an hour early, sat outside the tute room, munching Chicken chips, reading my DHS manual, ya, believe it or not, I’m actually reading. I can;t even believe myself. Haha.

Then hor, after quite a long wait, my Korean friend, Han came along and said to me, Sara’s gone home cos she checked her email that the tute is cancelled. I’m like huh? Then Han proceeded to say that nah, don’t worry, not all groups, just her’s. I’m like, but I AM in the same group with SARA! Sigh, went to clarify with the lecturer, checked my mail, yes, the tute is indeed cancelled. Sigh, I remembered I checked my mail the day before, and there is NOTHING. Who would have known that they actually sent the email like 8.30 in the morning, expecting me to check it. Aiyo. That time I am still lying on my bed, under the thick covers, dreaming la ok? So ‘nan2 de2’ I can sleep in wo, and s0hp0h being indulged in her sleep so much, of course won’t let go of this chance la. Sleep until ‘gao gao’ and wake up just on the right time to eat lunch, bath then rush to the bus stop. So, like I care to check my mail at that time lo.


Anyway, the cancelled and will be rescheduled-tute gave me a chance to catch up with high school mates, and it was great! Keke.. So, now s0hp0h is just enjoying the weekend. Wahahaha!

Happy Birthday: Ying Ying

“Very” Belated Birthday Post

On the fateful 22nd of April, it is the birthday of my new found friend, Ying Ying. She is my second friend who has a TWIN. But both of them are girls. How cool to have a twin, and they look very similar too. Luckily they don’t go to the same Uni cos Ying Ying’s twin is doing Dentistry in Singapore, or else, it might be confusing.

So, on this same day, which is about a week ago, yes, I am lazy, didn’t update in time, hope u don’t mind, we had a steamboat (authentic TomYam flavour) party! Sounds weird doesn’t it? But’s it’s really fun. Well, at first Ying Ying is unaware that it’s her PARTY, cos she decided that we don’t know her birthday. So, we just happen to KNOW cos she told us before and so, we tried tried tried to make it a surprise, which I think didn’t work perfectly well, but reasonably well enough to make the birthday gal happy happy, erm, hope so anyway.

It was a long preperation u see, cos we need to buy all the stuff and food etc. It was very tiring too, carrying all the chicken, crabmeat, sausages, meehoon, mushrooms, tofu, biscuits, chips, drinks, the CAKE, sigh I don’t even remember what other stuff we bought. It’s just crazy. Sara even made tohu-hua. But she didn’t say it’s her first TIME. Luckily enough for us, it turned out fine.

Oooo, F-O-O-D, everything I lived FOR.

L to R: Sara, Adrian, Xin Yee, Me, Birthday girl Ying Ying.

Then we went back to Viv n Xin Yee’s place after lunch to set up for the big occasion. Hmm. Yeah, BIG occasion.

Han and her husband, Ma cooked the Korean traditional food, Kimchi for us, YUMMY. My saliva is drooling as I am having flashbacks on how good it actually tasted! It was like the BEST. Omg!!! We ate it with a lil bit of rice wrapped in see weed, not like sushi, more like a wanton-style. When you put it in your mouth, the seaweed sticks to your palate and then te Kimchi sauce just pour out surrounding the mouth. YUMMMMMMM…..

After the tremendous set-up, we waited for everyone to arrive, anticipating the feeling of pouring the food all into our big mouths down to our constantly grumbling stomach.

Then, we eat, eat, eat and yet MORE eating. The food is just too much that the leftovers had fed us brunch the next day, and multiple mini steamboats for Viv n Xin Yee. Imagine, lunchs n dinners. I don’t think Viv n Xin Yee will like steamboat anymore….

Clockwise from the cake: 20th year old Ying Ying, Ma, Han, Sara, Vivian, Xin Yee, Adrian, Dee Wei (sorry if spelt wrongly), Lasi? (sorry as well if spelt wrongly), Felicia and Bridget.

The funny thing is, we bought the candles right, and then it turns out that we don’t have matches. -.-” So we have to borrow from the reception and because the steamboat went on quite LONG, the guy actually came up to ask for it back. Aisyeh, there goes our plan, down the drain. So, we frantically light up the candle as fast as we can. Then do the whole singing song thing, and forgot to even take a picture of Ying Ying blowing candles. Haha.

Ying Ying, posing with her ‘pressiess’. Check out the hat n slippers, they’re so CUTE! Of course, extra mention to the scarf, why? cos I gave her THAT, although lots of other people also gave her scarfs.

Me n Ying Ying sleptover that night. We alternate between playing Mahjong and Bridge and Vivian being a very busy person as she is, is in such a rush that we don’t even have the time to breathe, we just keep have to say, pong, pong, kong, SIK!

A ‘wu’ that Ying Ying ‘sik’!

The next morning Adrian came over and we all ate leftover brunch which was left on the pot from the day before. Haha, sounds disgusting but actually tasted good, once we heat it up again la. And we put our tongues and throats for a spicyness test when Adrian decided to cook the whole bottle of sambal with the ‘kangkung’ and ‘tofu-pok'(dunno wat u call it..) The smell is so nice but it goes up to ur nose so quickly.. Cough cough..

SO that is it, a nice social gathering. ^^ Lastly, Happy Birthday again to Ying Ying, although oledi is a bit meaningless.. Hope that was a nice celebration for U!

Uni starts..

The holiday was officially over, and I am well into the first week back in Uni. The same old routine repeats itself, classes 9-5. Poor poor poor me, why should any course be placed a schedule like that? It’s even worse than having a job, at least you get paid. Me? Lots of shit assignments and tonnes and tonnes of never-ending reading material. I can easily pick one of my textbooks that is still wrapped perfectly nice in their plastic covers, and they are well above 500 pages. How can anyoneee possibly torture themselves that way? Even looking at one of the paragraphs make my head goes dizzy. *@.@*

Holiday was good, multiple sleepovers, endless mahjong nites, and good old panda eyes.

Yesterday was a public holiday, so I went to the beach again with my fellow coursemates.

L to R: Cho, Xin Yee, Me, Sara, Han & Ying Ying.

This time to Hallett Cove, I believe it’s a tanjung?

L to R: Xin Yee, Sara, Me, Ying Ying.

Anyway, it was a nice place wit lots of lil dark brown crabs hiding their lives underneath the rocks which can be easily disturbed by my one hand flipping it over. Yes, their lives. Then they will run, er, crawl I mean, horizontally of course and swim, yes swim for their lives. Muahhahaha, stress relieving! Ekhem, people, I am not that crazy ok! But it’s fun catching crabs, although I only caught one, cos I am too freaked out to hold them.


But us being damn kind hearted people, decided not to entwined the crabs’ fates as pet food, they we actually released it back to the rocks, beach, or wateva u call it. Then we walked along the coastal line after a very big lunch, and found large piles of peculiar stones, which unfortunately for them ended in quite bad shape.

Look for ‘Peng was HERE’

Not so long ago, a friend mentioned that it’s cool to have a Dr. in front of our names. -.-” I don’t want. It sounded so lame and fake cos we are only going to be dentists. Not DOCTORS. Picture this situation whr ppl saw ur name, Dr. Bla Bla, and say, ‘O, are u specialising in any area?’ So, what should you say leh? ‘Yeah, I specialised in teeth’? Nono, no such doctors. ‘I specialised in mouth?’ Nono, they are called Oral Maxillo facial surgeon. If say, ‘Nah, I’m just a dentist’, haihz see? The big problem? They should call dentist something else.. Nonetheless, my friends enjoy themselves with that title and so, we all did this,

L to R: Dr Han, Dr Li, Dr Chong, Dr Kong & Doctor Lim (who is expecially excited).

After all these ‘wu liao’ things that we did, allow me to quote Pik Shen, “Sweat ppl do sweat things”, yes, we went cove-trekking. That was tiring as hell. Walked very far away and then climb up a massive staircase and walked all the way back. Anyway, not that you guys will understand cos it sounded so.. EASY. It’s just pure tiredness, due to my lack of daily exercise.

Behind us are the ‘long’ rocks which lined the cove.

On our way back, we saw this…

Chian Ur will love it, but poor thing, it’s locked in a car on a sunny sunny day. You noe, we could have actually release it by pushing the window. See how daring Aussies are! If in M’sia, the dog will possibly end up in a steamboat. Wakaka..

I think that’s it about the beach, too lazy to continue cos I still need to do a steamboat post. Laterzz…

s0hp0h’s Easter

Ladies & gentlemen (if there’s any), welcome and join in the celebration of s0hp0h’s Easter. Yes, Easter is over, I’m certainly well aware of that! So, why Easter? It’s a lame reason. I saw the advertisement few days ago on TV about the meaning of Easter. Yes, I don’t actually know the true meaning of Easter except a day to eat chocolate eggs and rabbits. The TV said, oh, the person I mean, said that Easter has a meaning of rebirth. So, it perfectly fits my condition now? My blog I mean. I was a keen user of Friendsters blog, yes, was, until NOW. I just got sick of Frinedster blog, NFYI ( not for your information). Also NYFI, it’s really not rebirth. I made it up. Cos the actual situation is, s0hp0h ‘pindah rumah’ only. Just want to make it sound more E-Y-E C-A-T-C-H-I-N-G. Fine, it didn’t work. So? I’ll cry myself to sleep tonight lo. I am a bit dissapointed actually, cos I tot there might be some way whr I will be able to transfer my previous posts from Friendster blog to here. Nvm….

So goodbye to my old blog, *extended wavesss* ;( mind you that from now on, you will always be hide beneath the earth as if you nvr existed, yes NEVER! fondly remembered.
