Guess what? Me and TTM are watching Tron: Legacy movie for free. Somemore, in 3D. Nowadays 3D movie are quite expensive. Luckily me coz TTM took me by surprised as he got those free movie voucher exchange for free movie ticket from his friend on the night before I depart to Taiwan on the next early morning. Yeah, we always hanging out together before I went for vacation or travelling.

Higher expectations end up with higher dissapointment. I thought this movie filled with lots of actions but too bad, it’s not.

Talking about cinema, it’s been a while or I can said it’s been long long time I had never watch movie at CP. Not that I don’t want but even TTM didn’t feel like want to go there for a movie. He rather pay extra or even drive extra miles away to 1Borneo insteaf of watching at the CP. He said their cinema is stink. Besides that, I do hate those people who likes to talk while the movie is on. Most of the time was watching at CP. Please respect the others. lah You are now watching movie at cinema, not UR HOME!! I don’t understand why these people can’t shut their mouth up. So many things to talk about. Want to talk then please go to cafe or even coffee shop to talk. Haiz.

I still remember there is one time my brother and I went to watch Harry Potter (forget Harry Potter no. what). Then, there is 2 gals who non-stop talking and discussing about how Harry Potter looks like from small until now. Until my bro seems like want to take the popcorn box and put into their mouth. U try imagine from the beginning of the movie these people talk talk talk until the end. Even I “sshhhhhhh” loudly but they pretend never heard that. What an unrespectful people!

Talking about movie, recently watched “Great Day” at Suria Sabah with TTM. A normal celebration for me and him together for 1 year. Another Chinese movie from Malaysia and I do love this movie. Laugh non-stop but in the mean time, it is so touching. I don’t want to become spoiler for those who haven’t watch yet but trust me, it is worth to watch.

This time around no more those idiot people keep talking behind us because we were sitting at the last row. Yeahoo!!!

Sign off and time for a sweet dream. Goodnite~

No Pain No Gain… Accept the Pain, Future will be Fruitful…

Don’t feel the work you are doing is pain, because there will be always a reason for that pain or work.

So face the pain, for the pain you face, there will be definitely happiness a head.

This message I specially dedicate to my P1 lecturer, Mr Tan. He sure would mention this phrase “No Pain, No Gain” everytime he was lecturing us. And now I was busy studying my p1. 4 more chapters to go but unfortunately the previous chapter I studied all faded away from my mind. Exam is around the corner!

  1. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return, But what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel.
  2. A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who means a lot to you only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be and you just have to let go.
  3. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.
  4. It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.
  5. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, and hour to like someone, and a day to love someone-but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
  6. Don’t go for looks, they can deceive. Don’t go for wealth, even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.
  7. Dream what you want to dream,go where you want to go, be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.
  8. Always put youself in the other’s shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.
  9. A careless word may kindle strife, a cruel word may wreck a life, a timely word may level stress, a loving word may heal and bless.
  10. The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
  11. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with a tear. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you’re the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.

I was checking my hotmail and I received this mail from my diploma classmate, Sherlie. So, I decided to save those pictures and post at here.




Nice right? Feel like relaxing and have a peaceful mind at there.

>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!

>Take your time to read it as I took it from my hotmail.

IT all started when I was 6 years old. While I was playing outside on my farm , I met a boy. He was an average kind of boy who teased you and then you chased them and beat them up. After that first meeting in which I beat him up we kept on meeting and beating each other up at the fence. That only lasted for a little while though. We would meet at the fence all the time and we were always together.

I would tell him all my secrets. He was very quiet he would just listen to what I had to say. I found him easy to talk to and I could talk to him about everything. In school we had separate friends but when we got home we would always talk about what happened in school. One day I said to him that a guy I liked hurt me and broke my heart. He just comforted me and said everything would be okay. He gave me words of encouragement and helped me get over him. I was happy and thought of him as a real friend. But I knew that there was something else about him that I liked. I thought of it that night and figured it was just a friend kinda thing that I was feeling.

All through high school and even through graduation we’re always together and of course I thought of it as being friends. But I knew deep inside that I really felt differently. On graduation night even though we had different dates to the prom I wanted to be with him. That night after everybody went home I went to his house and wanted to tell him that I wanted to see him. Well, that night was my big chance and all I did was just sit there with him watching the stars and talking about what I was going to do and what he was going to do. I looked into his eyes and listened to him talk about what his dream was. How he wanted to get married and settle down. He said how he wanted to be rich and successful. All I could do was to tell him my dream and cuddle next to him.

“I went home hurting because I didn’t tell him how I was feeling. I wanted to tell him so bad that I loved him but I was too scared and frightened. I let my feelings go and told myself that someday I would tell him just how I felt. All through college I wanted to tell him but he always had someone with him.” After graduation he got a job in New York, I was happy for him but at the same time I was sad to see him go. I was sad also because I didn’t tell him how I felt. But I couldn’t let him know now that he was leaving for his big job. So I just kept it to myself and watched him go on the plane. I cried as I hugged him for what I felt was going to be the last time. I went home that night and cried my eyes out. I felt hurt that I didn’t tell him what I had inside my heart.

Well, I got a job as a secretary and then worked my way to a computeranalyst. I was proud of what I had accomplished. One day I got a letter with an invitation to a marriage. It was from him, I was happy and sad at the same time. Now I know that I could never be with him and that we could only be friends. I went to the wedding the next month. It was a big occasion.The big church wedding and the reception at the hotel. I met the bride and of course him. I fell in love one more time. But I held back so it wouldn’t spoil what should be the happiest day in his life. I tried to have fun that night but it was killing me inside watching him being so happy and me trying to be happy covering up my sadness tears inside of me.

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: ‘I am blind, please help.’ There were only a few coins in the hat.
A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words. Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, ‘Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?’
The man said, ‘I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way.’ What he had written was: ‘Today is a beautiful day and I cannot see it.’ Do you think the first sign and the second sign were saying the same thing? Of course both signs told people the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?
Moral of the Story: Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively. Invite others towards good with wisdom.
“Live life with no excuse and love with no regrets. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile.”
Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear. Great men say, ‘Life has to be an incessant process of repair and reconstruction, of discarding evil and developing goodness…. In the journey of life, if you want to travel without fear, you must have the ticket of a good conscience.’ The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling… And even more beautiful is, knowing that you are the reason behind it!!!
I really like this story as it awakes me and makes me realize I should appreciate and proud with what I had now as this few days really makes me fall aparts from this worlds. Anyway, exam is around the corner and all da best to all my lovely friends.. I also should work hard as I haven’t start do my revision yet :P.. Before I end, I would like to say 1000 thanks to Pei Fen for your concerns…Muaksss…Friends forever and keep in touch when you back in Miri oooo

This week nothing much I can write in my blog coz lots of things happen. Even during Scotland trip, I should enjoy and leave all my problems behind but I can’t. Maybe I too sensitive with it. However, today is my dearest pretty maid aka aunty birthday. Happy Birthday to purplefish. I just gave her a miss call and I never thought she will know that is me.. At last, I end up with calling her and wish her “Happy Birthday”. It’s been so long we never chat so we had talked in the phone for more than 15 minutes. She told me that she is going to yam cha with my other ji mui, Jenny and Meow Ling. How I wish I was there at that moment where they can cheer me up? I don’t dare to tell them my problems as they had their problems too. Forget bout that..
I think some of you had read bout the story that I post below. I had read twice and I post here coz it is really a touching story.

My mom only had one eye. I hated her. She was such an embarrassment. She cooked for students and teachers to support the family.

There was this one day during elementary school where my mom came to say hello to me. I was so embarrassed. How could she do this to me? I ignored her, threw her a hateful look and ran out.

The next day at school one of my classmates said, “EEEE, your mom only has one eye!” I wanted to bury myself. I also wanted my mom to just disappear. I confronted her that day and said, “If you’re only gona make me a laughing stock, why don’t you just die?” My mom did not respond… I didn’t even stop to think for a second about what I had said, because I was full of anger. I was oblivious to her feelings. I wanted out of that house, and have nothing to do with her. So I studied real hard, got a chance to go abroad to study.

Then, I got married. I bought a house of my own. I had children of my own. I was happy with my life, my children and the comforts. Then one day, my mother came to visit me. She hadn’t seen me in years and she didn’t even meet her grandchildren. When she stood by the door, my children laughed at her, and I yelled at her for coming over uninvited. I screamed at her, “How dare you come to my house and scare my children! “GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!”

And to this, my mother quietly answered, “Oh, I’m so sorry. I may have gotten the wrong address,” and she disappeared out of sight. One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house. So I lied to my wife that I was going on a business trip. After the reunion, I went to the old shack just out of curiosity. My neighbours said that she died.

I did not shed a single tear. They handed me a letter that she had wanted me to have.

“My dearest son, I think of you all the time. I’m sorry that I came to your house and scared your children. I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion. But I may not be able to even get out of bed to see you. I’m sorry that I was a constant embarrassment to you when you were growing up. You see……..when you were very little, you got into an accident, and lost your eye. As a mother, I couldn’t stand watching you having to grow up with one eye. So I gave you mine. I was so proud of my son who was seeing a whole new world for me, in my place, with that eye.

“With all my LOVE to you, YOUR MOTHER

First time when I read this story, my tears drop. OK! I am a sensitive person. But I really appreciate my family as well as my friends. All of you are important for me as you all is part of my life.

I miss my beloved mom!! This year celebration of mother’s Day!
