The end marks a new beginning

s0hMood > *Celebrations*

Awww… 2008 is coming to an end! Despite it being a shitty year, it’s sure gonna beat 2009 because according to all the financial predictions, 09 is gonna be a tough cookie. Sigh. I hate bad predilictions. They suck. As for those Chinese New Year ‘fan tai sui’ thingy. Luckily I escape it this coming year, woopeee. Maybe now I’ll have a better year ahead. Anyway. 2008. A long and short year. Long cause I don’t really remember the details, it seems so farrr away. Short cause, hell, it’s ONE year already? Sigh. I know I am contradicting myself here, but please pardon me. The one who has nothing to be proud of 2008. It’s like as if I did not achieved anything and the only thing I can think of, if being able to continue next year as a 4th year dental student. Sure means a lot to me. But also sad to know some friends won’t be joining us. Awwww. I feel bad already. Sigh….. I really think being able to graduate on time is a damn big achievement. It’s hard to think that I have survived those three years. So God, please continue to help me. God knows I need it, A LOT. And not just financially – 2009 sure’s gonna be a bad year in terms of academic cause life in 4th year is a real bitch, or so I heard from seniors. But I love clinic *touch wood*, so hopefully I’ll be ok.

2008. The year started with me getting my FIRST ever extraction and it involves the wisdom tooth. 3rd year student. First time treating real patients. First filling of my ‘potential’ career. Serious cases of insomia throughout the year – am I getting stressed out? First time eating French. Official TAG T-shirts. Got braces! Half-BDS. Dental Loupes. First time being kai-ma. Got addicted to Korean variety show ‘We Got Married’. Hate Kate Tsui for watever she does. Wow. There goes my 2008. How freaking pathetic.

New Year resolution. Let’s see. Study hard, as always but never turned out to work, but still always think it may be DIFF this time. Start exercising since I am getting older >.< and I do realise my health is a great asset – I’m so freaking unfit.  Save more money for retail therapy kekeke. Drink and party less (but I don’t do much of it anyway). Succesfully pass 4th year in 2009. That should be everything? So there goes my 2008. Wish that you all have had a crappy 2008 because only then 2009 will be good. Hope it’s gonna be a blasting ride ahead!!! Best wishes and regards, xoxo, sohpoh.

Season greetings…

s0hMood > *Merry merry X’mas*

Yohooo! Merry Christmas everyone! Only dropping by to wish ya all a very Happy X’mas just in case if any of you are miserable enough to be checking my blog even during this festive season. See I’m so considerate towards you people LOL. Sure hope none of you are so kesian la. I was supposed to blog bout Penang but just got all the pics yesterday so I’ll blog some other day. Check the photos on Facebook though, I have been uploading some – tried like so many darn times and they keep failing cause of me stupid hands. Keep cancelling it or turning off the comp, wtfishhhh. Anyway, I decided to upload it in batches to prevent the occurence of such ridiculous mistakes so yea, do check FB if interested. Alright, that’s it for now cause I need to go bathe – going out to a X’mas party and another one tomorrow. So busy, I know!!!  I’m not complaining though =P I’m one for hectic social calenders, I hate days with nothing to do. It’s like so boring and empty.  Especially when these holidays I have virtually no drama marathon going on – I’ve seen the old TVB dramas and the new ones are coming out so slowly T-T. Anyway, got to head off now, so ending with a Merry merry X’mas everyone! Hope Santa grants ya’ll your wishes, and MINE of course too… *hint hint: MY MONEY TREE, I still need it after more deadly rounds to Times Square + Sg Wang yesterday – but I did catch some REAL bargains =)* Toodles~~

Random updates

Anyung to those who are still reading  – which are almost non-existent I believe. But anyway, I’ll update. I was going to update FB, but since someone said mine’s been stagnant for a while (which hasn’t), I’ll update blog lor. Have been going out heaps hehehe and the TAG anual trip is coming up this Friday. Woohooo, I’m so damn excited despite the departing time set at 5 am. Yes. 5 freaking AM >.< I really don’t know how I’ll manage. But I’m not the one driving so why am I complaining yea? Apparently though, the passengers are not allowed to sleep. We have to keep the driver awake. Right. Like we are really gonna do that hahaha. Ah, I’m so excited OMGOMG. Right, it’s in Penang and those who know what to do there, pelase drop a note yes? I’m really not into those Kek Lok Si kind of thing. And a Google search reveals nothing more than that. HOW conservative. Anyway, I’ll be taking heaps of pictures!

Back to what I’ve done. I have been watching backdated ‘We got married’ since I sort of fell of the bandwagon a fair bit especially over SWOTVAC period. And my favourite Ssangchu couple is leaving. Sob sob. Now got nothing to watch after it’s over. So depressing. I guess I have to watch the Gaetonggi couple. Sigh. No more funny jokes.

I went and saw my kai zai the other day! Omg, he’s so much cuter than in pictures loh!! Steph, you are quite geng hor. Lol, your son so ‘yan gin yan oi’, sure ‘cheh gin cheh joi’. But he’s quite light. Steph, you didn’t feed him ar!! Lol. But that makes it easier to carry la ^^

Then the other day, I went to ‘Kei Dak Sik’ the other day behind Low Yat Plaza and had the classic Mango sago. OMG. It’s like so damn good can? Wow, sure didn’t know plain mango and ice can be so divine! It’s like they’re made for each other for heaven’s sake! No more lousy ABC’s for me. I freaking hate those big ass red beans anyway. And especially when they add those pink syrup and atapchi. Ewwwww…. Anyway, more piccies time..

Fatty

s0hMood > *fat*

The new wordpress is annoying me to bits. Grrr. It’s so effing slow and the lousy connection sure didn’t help! Gawddddd! Just trying to create a new post and it took me like a gazillion years. I’m suprised I didn’t give up earlier. Sometimes I really think I have like zero patience man. I hate waiting. Waiting SUCKS big time. Especially when it involves computer and internet. Hate slow computer. Hate slow internet. Everytime I bump into one, I feel like crashing the damn machine altogether. Like seriously, they are supposed to HELP me, yet they do best in making me much more miserable. Siao.

I haven’t been getting my Gossip Girl fix for quite sometime (hence they erraticness, pardon me). But I am doing pretty well so far. Until I start googling about it. Sigh. I want it now! So damn bored and have nothing to do. But I just can’t be bothered to download. Or even stream it. Laziness. Sigh. Anyway, speaking of GG, the day before I head back to Msia, I sent off Sophia to HQ and on my way back, I saw this Asian chic earing a very pretty white dress. And I was like, I’ve seen it somewhere! I thought it maybe of of the countless dresses I saw through my routine window shopping, Forever New maybe? But no. It hit me like a truck. OMFG – It’s the same dress Blair wore to the White party! You know, the one where they shamelessly advertised the new Vitamin water (which btw doesn’t taste very nice and certainly not worth buying). OMGOMG. The dress! So damn pretty! Wow. Anyway, for those who don’t remember, here’s a shot of it (best one I can find with Blair wearing it).

Picture doesn't look very flattering but if you have seen it, you'll know it's so damn PRETTY!

Better quality, but it's a side view

It’s by Marc Jacobs and is actually sold commercially. Wow. How freaking amazing! And the rest of the dresses featured in the show, most of them can also be bought, at an expensive price of course. The white dress cost like 300+. Siao! But then most designer gowns can cost like 10,000 no? So 300 is actually relatively cheap and affordable in a sense. Let me graduate and get my fat paycheck already! I can’t believe the girl wore it to HQ though. It’s like a club filled with drunkies and clumsy people who like to spill drinks on others and break champagne glasses. Like damn dumb lor. The last time I went, my feet and heels was treated to a whole glass of champagne just because some idiot decided to dance and let it loose and wahlaa, guess what, it dropped to the floor laaaaaa! That noob! Imagine if someone spilled into that girl’s dress man (whether accidental or not), I think I would have shoved that damn champange glass into his/her nostrils on spot.

But then again, even if I have the money to buy, doesn’t mean I’ll fit. Damn. And to even think about what I’ve eaten just then. My supper – oh gawd, my mum is evil la. She kept asking if I wanna go buy something to eat. I said no at first, but eventually thought, just a lil nvm, and I went all crazy. Bought too much and I couldn’t finish half of it. But I did the same thing last time during my first pasar malam outing (I just never learn do I?) and I felt really bad wasting all the food like that. Hence I forced myself to finish it this time. How stupid seriously, I was left so freaking full. The food’s nice and all, but sigh, why must good food be so damn oily and fatty and what’s not? I don’t even dare to imagine how many kilos I’ll be gaining this time around. I just hope the orthodontist will be cruel (tigthen my braces gao gao) when I head back to Adelaide with those extra baggage (pun intended).

An open letter to Mr Santa Claus

Dear Mr Santa (who may I add is ever so generous and kind and what’s not),

In the short span of two weeks, I’ve bought:
1 trench coat and a bag (yippeeeee!)
2 pairs of shoes
Lots of tops: formal ones, unformal ones woohoo.
Countless other miscellaneous items: jeweleries, nail polish and stickers, hair accessories and photo albums (WTH?).

Now that doesn’t sound like a lot does it? Which is a good thing. Means there is space for more muauahaha. Please don’t misunderstand my evil laugh. It’s only natural that a girl gets so excited about shopping. But sigh, it feels like I’m so broke already. Which is a bad thing seeing the fact that I really haven’t bought enough. Hmmm. Which is why I need you, dear Santa. I’ve never really asked you for anything (well, I don’t believe in your existence since ever) but as I grew older, I realised, free stuff are the best stuff.  And since I’ve never got ANYTHING from you, it does seem pretty fair that you grant me this lil wish, and I swear I’ve been at good for at least one year out of my 22 years of life (come one, there ought to be ONE year where I actually behaved, I’m afraid the odds are against you Santa). So if you can just please oh pretty please give me a tree that grows money? Wait, let me rephrase. YOU have to/must/are obligated to give me a tree that grows money.  Albiet Christmas is still a while away, but I am a very patient girl (in a sense) so I can wait. Thank you very much.

Waiting for your reply,

xoxo,

Very random ramblings

s0hMood > *slept*

I feel so freaking dissapointed. Thought about it all last night, interrupting my sleep. And waited for it the entire morning till 3 in the afternoon till I finally decided, enough is ENOUGH. My stupid exam results. Sigh. Not out yet. Despite them saying it’s going to be today. An email later confirmed that there has been some problems with it and will be completed tomorrow morning. Hopefully. And they added in the email should anyone be offered supp, an email would have been sent out already. I didn’t get any. I just hope that’s a good sign. Because it either mean I pass everything, thus not requiring any supps, OR it can be because I failed too badly, hence no supp. Hope it’s not the latter. I sort of feel better in a way. Not to say I’ll definitely pass, but I sure don’t think that I fail badly *touch wood*.

Anyway, Jusco’s having a big big sale tomorrow, which I hope to be able to grab a few things hehehehhee. And TAG has finally moved forward in terms of planning the year end trip and it sounds so much fun. I love travelling! Going to take lots and lots of pictures to update my Facebook profile man. It’s been stagnant since Pharmacy Pubcrawl, which is like eons ago – seriously, I don’t even rememeber when it was. Speaking of clubbing, I haven’t been doing much or any as a matter of fact. Might hit one of the KL clubs someday. Though I’m not a fan of it, but with friends, it should be good. Plus a very good reason to go all dressy. Ok. I think I’m starting to sound very.. un-me? Lol must be the weather. Totally messing up my brain.

Sigh. I seriously can’t wait till I finally graduate. 2 more freaking years. Sigh. It’s so short yet so long. I really want the freedom to go anywhere I want, whenever I want. And attend all my friends’ weddings! And prank their grooms till they drop! Sigh. Dreams, dreams. So pretty yet so hard to achieve. I believe it will come one day though. Heheh. I really have the best friends in the world! We don’t have to do much and still have lots of fun. We don’t have to say much to understand each other perfectly. Sigh. Where do you get friends like that man? Once in a life time really. And I’m thankful that I have so many of them. Sometimes I really think I’m so damn lucky. For everything in my life has gone well. God might not have gave me a pretty face, a bubbly personality or an Einstein brain but at least I’m very very lucky. Not in terms of winning prizes or anything like that, but just small things in life. It makes such a big difference. I may not have the best parents in the world, but to me they are. My siblings may not be perfect but that’s why they’re special. There’s so many in life that I love and enjoy that maybe, just maybe, I really do have a life afterall! I just hope God is kind enough to not take it away from me. Ah~~ Life is good ^^

p/s I’m not trying to BRAG ok – it sure didn’t sound like that right??? Anyway, just in case if any insane person starts thinking that la. I’m just really really grateful at this very moment and I feel it’s only right if I gave it the proper token of appreciation it deserves.

pp/s Sorry. The post is really random. Sure didn’t know why it end up like that lol.

So sick

s0hMood > *Hot*

I am sick. But not that sick. Caught a sore throat, flu, cough and feeling a bit feverish, from don’t know where. But it ain’t that bad. I’m still living well. What’s sicker is the bargain I got from yesterday’s outing. So sick that it deserves a OMFG. Seriously. I bought this mickey mouse shoes (not sure what they are really called, the type resembling Converse shoes but with Mickey Mouse imprints) for like an incredibly awesome RM 19. 19 RINGGIT ok!!! Even if it’s in AUD it is dirt cheap! But then AUD has fell a lot recently, but that’s not the point. The original price was RM 119 and I seriously cannot believe it’s so damn cheap!! The prices are slashed like crazy. After Shan told me about it, I just couldn’t resist and got me self a pair in like 10 seconds. Lolol. Me and my shopping crazes. Now everyone’s teasing me for my spontaneous-ism. And like how I keep exclaiming “OMG, so cheap” and proceed in rounds of binging. Hmm, but it’s true what. IT IS CHEAP. I mean when I say it’s cheap, you’ll know it’s cheap! So so sooooo sick!!!!! I’m still over the moon from the bargain lolololol.

Other things aside, I cut my hair. Did that like the third day after arriving. I figured it’s nothing to tell since I didn’t even blog bout it last time, and it’s been like a week. But there’s nothing else to say, hence in an effort to fill up my blog, so yea. It’s now rather short. Just pass my shoulders. Don’t think I’ll be cutting it anytime soon. I’ll keep the length the very least. Probably just trim my fringe before I head back. Oh btw, I cut my hair for 7 ringgit. Cheap right? Lol. Plus wash, blow and cut. With massage somemore. I think it’s a very good bargain la. Plus the quality ain’t bad. I have to say Kimarie students totally beat Snips hands down. It’s actually way better than the times I cut in so-called professional salons. But I’m not the kind who would pay an exorbitant amount for a hair cut. So maybe the really good ones are really good. But if I was to compare the student ones and the ‘good’ ones, the student ones are better imo. Though you have to sit there for like an hour plus before you can get your super silky straight hair. It also depends on the student you get. I was lucky to get one that didn’t need any  guidance from the ‘tutors’ while my friend got one who constantly needed supervision. I guess it’s really your luck, hmm. And one of my friend even got her hair caught on one of the hair dryers. Ouch.

So far, I’ve been to night markets thrice. Karaoke twice. Cinema once. Went and saw Twilight. It wasn’t great, but it’s pretty good. But then again, I’m a sucker for fantasy films so it’s merely based on my opinion. My other friends weren’t too much of a fan. I’m just disappointed that the main lead ain’t as good looking as the synopsis suggested, but his face does grow on me a bit. I learnt to think his ‘7 fen nian’ is much more dazzling that his face from the front. And he has this crazy eyes and weird lips. No wonder he got casted as the vampire. Lol. He does have VERY great resemblence (to the vampires we imagine) and a mystery touch to his look. I have to read the BOOK!!!! Anyway, there’s going to be a sequel to this flick (since it’s based on a series of novel) but after having read the summary of the second novel, I don’t think the second one will be that great. Hmmm. But I hope they prove me wrong cause I really like the story. It’s really interesting. And by the way, this is no horror flick, so don’t expect to see any er, gross pictures. It’s more towards romance and SO DAMN FUNNY at times. Definitely worth watching if you are a fantasy fan.

My results coming out tomorrow. OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!! Thanks for the wish pplz, I really need it, and good luck to all of us ^^.
