>My family just adopted new puppy, Shih Tzu type and her name was Guci. Yup, Guci but not the world famous brand, Gucci! It is 6 months old now.

Wasn’t she adorable?

I tied a pink ribbon on her but she doesn’t like it.

It’s me and Guci

My convocation ends last saturday and my mom went back last few days. I was suppose to go back hometown earlier since some of my friends are busy working and some got class. But I refuse and book my ticket on 17th November 2008. After my mom and my aunts back, I went back to Wangsa Maju to stay with Meow Ling for another few days. Most of the times I went to library to online because lazy to go shopping and want to online booking to Kuching and Miri since I haven’t book yet.
Glad that Jenny, Purplefish and Meow Ling want to go out with me this weekend. Damn happy till speechless that time. This is the moment I was waiting for. It’s been so long never went out with them after back from UK. Some more, this is my first time to go out with 3 of them. So sad Kai Wee is not here with us. Then it would be totally perfect picture. I went out with them before but not 3 of them together.
4 of us went to KLCC to watch Madagascar 2. Bought the ticket first before had our lunch. At first we find a seat at KLCC food court there..Suddenly purplefish suggest to eat at Sushi King. Well, since I also want to eat ramen althought I just ate at Sushi King twice with my hostel juniors and my sis. Unfortunately, no curry ramen for today. So sad.. So I had to order other dishes.

Still curry but with rice

Jenny’s dish…

4 of us at Sushi King..

After that, movie time. Comment for this movie was not as funny compare the first movie. However, overall still can watch. I still miss the Madagascar first movie. The song makes me move…”I like to move it, move it”..

I’m really had a wonderful time with them. Although just window shopping around Isetan, Nose, Espirit, etc… Then we went back to Wangsa to have our dinner. Tonight is purplefish last night to stay at wangsa since she want to shift to KL Central to stay with her sis. Quite sad by the way because next time when I back to KL, no purplefish around Wangsa Maju. So must enjoy that moment with them. We had steamboat at new Hometown Steamboat which was located nearby BRJ. Chat for non-stop. I miss u all when I writing this blog..

So touching that both of u come especially my ex-roomie who can have a good rest at home after being working for whole week but still spend some time to come…As well as my senior, busy with her assignment but come with her cutie and pretty smile…Hehehe

My ex-roomie, Chai Hsia

My senior, Joey. Doesn’t look like my senior rite?

Kuma-kuma from both of them..So cute!!
Spend a day with my 1st roomate, Chai Hsian and my senior, Joey..Been so long we never went out together after celebration of my birthday. We went to Pasar Seni coz Joey want to search for souvenir for her lecturer. After that, we went to Times Square to have our lunch. At first, we plan to have our lunch at Gasoline but we saw a new restaurant being launched at ground floor, so we decide to have a try. The name of that restaurant was Vivo. It’s famous for American pizza.
[The pic of the dishes we order will be upload soon after Joey upload to me]

I really miss the moment where 3 of us overnite at Joey place at Sg Long there and had a pillow talk. Thanks to Chai Hsia, althought being my roomate for 1 sem only, but I felt like knowing u for so long. Glad that after you had moved out, you still remember me. Joey, sorry coz keep bullying u when in hostel. I really had a good time with u after all this…

8th November 2008

Today is the most important not just for me, but my mom too. She had been waiting for this day for so long. She is the one who arrange all for me which makes me feel glad and blessful to have mom that keep supporting in everything I do especially in my study. Wake up at 5.30 am for early preparation coz the registration is from 7 am till 8 am. I scare if late, can’t join the convo. We wait for taxi outside the hotel but need to wait for almost half hour coz too early. Not much taxi that time so me and my mom decide to go Sungei Wang there to take taxi. Believe it or not? The driver ask for RM20 from there to TAR College. WTH!! But my mom said OK..Coz she really scare I unable to reach there on time coz I still need to go hostel to take my gown. That’s my mom. When reach hostel, I just realize something. The visit time is from 7.30 am and I reach there at 7 am. Somemore, my cousin was at hotel, not at hostel so no one can’t help me take my formal shoes and gown. I damn nervous that moment. Luckily the hostel guard was very kind to let me enter or else I’m really in dead meat.
It’s quite funny for us to wear gown with th red hood on it. While waiting to enter hall, it’s so hot..

Before enter the hall..Everyone said “Cheessse..”

The gown was so thick. I really can’t wait to enter the hall, take the certificate roll and get out of the hall. So lucky that Kai Wee sit just nearby or else I will be dead boring. Non stop chatting with Sharon, Kai Wee, and the people beside me and behind me. Hahahaha…Talk for almost 2 hours just realised is our turn to go to the stage. Really damn nervous. When times come, all I can do is SMILE!! Yes, SMILE!! So glad that I didn’t pengsan or fell down on the stage.

This is the moment where all of us waiting for. FINISH!! The ceremony is over. We thought that it will end around 12 pm but it ends earlier at 10.30 am. Wah!! Really very fast. The moment that every student (i think so) wait for was taking unforgetable photos with family and friends.

My family: My aunt, cousin, 2nd aunt and my mom

AAC students

Glad that our diploma Business Law lecturer, Mr Julius come
Yeah, lots of photos but still not satisfied with it. Because I didn’t manage to take some of the photo with my classmates, coursemates and even my AFA friends. This time I also didn’t take photos in front of library, my favourite place. Haiz..So sad..
However, I’m glad that….

Adeline and Marina come from far far far away just to attend the convo. Adeline from Melaka and Marina from Kelantan. Thank so much!! Love u both!!

My hostel juniors..Thanks for the flowers!!

For this convo, I got 2 wishes. I know that second wish won’t come true coz it is impossible but I really glad till like nobody worlds when all my ji mui come especially purplefish. I received sms from her the night before convo that she can’t come coz need to send her mom to airport. I was damn sad till I not really had the mood that time. It was a really a great shock and suprise to see her there and u know what? I shout like a mad dog. But I really happy. Thanks so much for coming.

>Friends vs. Best Friends

Friend: calls your parents by mr. and mrs.
Best friend: calls your parents dad and mom.
[All my friends call my parents uncle and aunty]

Friend: has never seen you cry
Best Friend: has always had the best shoulder to cry on
[Never cry on their shoulder but some of them saw me cry]

Friend: never asks for anything to eat or drink
Best friend: opens the fridge and makes herself at home
[Erm….let me think back…seldom some of them come to my house unless during CNY]

Friend: asks you to write down your number.
Best friend : they ask you for their number ( cuz they can’t remember it)
[This one, I think I will ask my long time friend, Shing Wei coz she is good in memorize things]

Friend: borrows your stuff for a few days then gives it back
Best friend: has a closet full of your stuff
[And I have theirs too]

Friend: only knows a few things about you
Best friend: could write a biography on your life
[Hopefully especially remember my birthday. That’s all]

Friend: will leave you behind if that is what the crowd is doing
Best friend: will always go with you
[Yup, is true and I always love them as my best friend]

Between Friends

Sometimes in life, you find a special friend;
Someone who changes your life just by being part of it.
Someone who makes you laugh until you can’t stop;
Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world.
Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it.
This is Forever Friendship.

This is dedicated to all my friends…Friends Forever!

Isle of Sky – Glascow

Back again to Scotland trip. Ok! Ok! This is the last post about Scotland trip. After that, my post will about Europe trip, Advanced Diploma convocation and lots more.
This is the 5th day of the Scotland Trip and we really start to dislike the programme being organised by the student coordinator especially the accomodation provided. Early morning, inside the coach, the student coordinator informed us that tonight we will separate into 2 hostel again. “What the ….”, Not Again!!!! Why can’t this people organised their things properly? I really just don’t get it. Selection of hostel for that moment was in Glasgow and one more is back to the first hostel that stayed which was Loch Lomond Youth Hostel. Glasgow hostel was not enough for all of us and the student coordinator need to choose 15 people to stay in Loch Lomond Youth Hostel. Hey, who want to stay back at the same hostel whereas Glasgow is much better where we can have night view. So, some of us start to argue for our own right and at last, the solution was we need to share 1 bed with 2 people. This solution is much better than stay back to Loch Lomond.
I was really moody that day. Hard to explain but what to do, put a fake smile and pretend to be happy.
First place that we visited was Eileen Donan Castle. It is now one of the most photographed monuments in Scotland and a popular venue for weddings and film locations. It has appeared in lots of films such as one of the James Bond’s movie; The World is Not Enough, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Made of Honor and even Bollywood movie, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. On a clear day it is possible to see the Isle of Skye from this castle. Weather on that day was very clear but we can’t see Isle of Sky coz we need to pay for the entrance fee. As usual, if we heard the world “Pay” sure we don’t want to have a look inside unless it is worthwhile. So, we just busybody outside the castle and wait for the time to fly.

Second place was Ben Nevis Distilerry but some of us not really interested with it. So we just walk around Fort William city.

At nitgh, walk around the Glasgow city and enjoy the night life. Glasgow was the second largest cities in Scotland with fantastic night life.

Glasgow – Moffat – Sheffield

Last day of Scotland trip. Whole day shopping around Glasgow. Before back to Sheffield, we stopby Moffat to buy Scotland infamous short bread biscuits. The famous brand were Walkers and Campbell. It was much more cheaper than the other places.

Stop for a while for crapping section before continue with another blog on Scotland trip. My sis asked me,Jie, why you like to write all those things about yourself and let all the people see?” “Well, u know I had STM which I scare one day if I really forget everything, at least I still got this blog to remind myself how my life was”, this is what I told my sis.. While blogging on my Scotland Trip part 4, i was chatting with one my ex-classmate. He told me he already resign and now back to hometown. It was a really shocked to hear it but this was his decision. In our conversation, I told him hard for me to make decision either to work in KL or stay at hometown and work here. I was really struggle with this for the past few days. Before I went back to KL last few days, I was being asked by my friends about this decision. In between, she had asked me the most important question which was “FOR WHO”. I told her the answer but is that the real answer truly from my heart? I wonder…
Back to my conversation with my friends. He told me that “we are not live for ourselves. Every decisions that we made, we need to count. We had to consider everyone surrounding us especially our parents. We can’t be selfish. Sometimes, we were being forced to do the things that we don’t like.” But what to do. This is life. Even sick with our life, we still need to continue. That’s why I named this post as “Untitled”. This is a song title sang by Simple Plan. Simple Plan always write a meaningful lyrics like Perfect. My friend had put some of the lyrics as his MSN display message. I also feel want to scream sometimes but I can’t. Can’t find the suitable places to scream as loud as I want. When think back of this, there was a moment where I scream so loud and it was at Pulau Redang. It was nightime that moment where my friends and I was chit chat while looking to the blue night sky filled with lots of twinkling stars. Sometimes, wish the Lord can show me the right path for me to choose the better choice of my life.. What can I said? This is life.

Pulau Redang trip 2 years ago. How times pass so fast???
