Not eligible for graduation?!

Today, when I checked my student e-mail, I found out that I've received a notification from the University stating about my program condition. Below is a snapshot of my notification:

Feeling puzzled. Unsure what had happened. I'm sure that I pass all my subjects, and by right, I can graduate without any problem. But this message says otherwise. I don't want to spend another half a year repeating the same thing anymore, if I want to carry on studying, might as well go for a master course, right?

Checked my academic result since Saturday, out of 3 subjects I enrolled this semester, 2 of the results were already posted up. One more left - my performance subject - which always gave me unnecessary problems, and I believe if anything happens to my graduation status, this subject will be the blame!

Got a phone call from the campus central not long later, telling me about the news. Apparently the results were out later than it was supposed to be, hence I did not 'complete' my course as per required and so I am not 'eligible' to graduate. Meh, scares me!

So, I'm done already! Finally finished my degree! Woohoooo! So, for those who wanna attend my graduation, it will be in April. And I'll also be back in Malaysia in April. See you guys next year!

Ggrrr... now I'm hungry!

I shouldn't choose a food photograph to post at this hour, now I'm hungry. Darn! The food above may not look delicious due to the blurriness, but trust me, this dish is delicious!

Well, I'm supposed to be on my bed now, but I'm just feeling quite refreshing at the moment so decided to make a short entry. Let's see what I can discuss at this hour?

All I have in mind now is food, and the more I think about food, the hungrier I get. Guess I should head to bed now and sleep, better think of something nice to eat tomorrow, but the house is out of food to eat! Sounded so pitiful. Haih~

Anyway, what I need to do now is to survey for University, check my final subject's result and apply for job, if there is any. Hopefully I can get some of it done by this week? Hahaha!

Oh, and I was also thinking of having a photo shooting around Adelaide, again. Hopefully, I can produce a bunch of good photographs. At least, I will have some memories next time when I go back right? Also, I need to brush up my photography skills. Not that I'm good but at least I should try to maintain or improve a bit. Heck?! What am I talking about? Not 'should' but it's a must! I MUST at least maintain what I've learn or at least get improve!

It's a deal then. Good night peeps! Thanks for bearing all this craps of mine tonight. If you wanna know more about the photograph posted above, do let me know, then I'll blog something about it.

I wonder if you guys remember the blog entry KIDNAP I've posted in mid October, it was about my Drama Production individual assignment - a 3 minutes narrative piece - and I posted a poster for it too.

This time, I'm gonna blog about my second assignment - a 6 minutes narrative piece group work. In the beginning of the course, I teamed up with Rachel and Sophia (as per course requirement - to team up with 2 other classmates) in order to assist each other during our project and the second assignment require us to come out with a 6 minutes story with the same requirement as the first.

After a few session of brainstorming, we decided to come out with this story, a story which goes around this ribbon hair clip. Rachel was sort of the scriptwriter while me and Sophia did most of the directing job. Editing was done by all of us together and we are quite happy with what we've produced. Though, there are some mistake which can be avoided if we are more careful.

Have a look at our short film:

(The quality of this video is not as good as the previous as this is not recorded in HD)

We spent 3 days getting all footages we needed, got help from so many people as our talents, and work in different setting and time. It was indeed tiring but at least it's worth it.

Of course, I wish and I know there are room for improvement for most of my production. Hopefully, I will able to direct a better video/short film soon. Do comment and let me know if this is good or not. Point out my mistake and let me know how can I improve from it. I would much appreciate your help.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank those who have helped us during the production especially the talents, for your time and cooperation. Thank you so much and I would like to work with you guys if there is any other opportunity!

Thanks and take care!

A dedication late at night

There is this Chinese saying goes: "We rely on our parents at home while we need help from friends away from home". It should be quite easy to interpret and understand. It merely means we all need friends and tends to depend on them especially when we are away from home.

Staying out of home is what I always wanted, when I was still in Malaysia I always thought of getting permission from my parents in order to stay out, living all by myself thinking that it would be fun. But I know it was impossible.

Today, I've got what I wanted. I am now staying in Adelaide, even further from where I expected. Before enrolling into Taylor's College, I did propose to my mom that I would like to further my studies in Penang, also to persue Communication course. Of course, my proposal has been rejected and hence enrolled into Taylor's College.

Not that I want to complain or whatnot. But I just want to say how thankful I am that my parents pay for my studies in Taylor's College and now in Adelaide. It's not a small sum of money and I know I should be grateful.

Thanks to them I get to know so many more people and got so close with them. The bond between me and them, even though it might not be as strong as the other people, but at least to me, I find it good enough.

I miss everyone back home! How wish I'm back home now meeting up with all of them. Take care everybody. And good night. I should go to sleep now. (It's 4 in the morning now =D)

I'm back!

Yeap, Im back again! Sorry for the long lost period, but I've a valid reason and excuse.

Right after the last entry, I was working my mind off to finish all my final assignments and projects. I only (sort of) finish my assignments around the first week of November and that was also when my friends started coming visiting one by one.

Currently, I have 2 girls in my room, packing up and ready to leave. I believe I'll be slightly free after that, but I cannot deny the fact that I have one more essay to write. After the essay, all I need to do is cross my fingers, and pray hard, hoping I pass all my subjects and get to graduate successfully!

Adelaide is not really a big city and in fact, we have nothing much to do here. So this trip, for my friends, can consider one relaxing tour. 4 days 3 nights over in Adelaide, we only been to 2 places - Hahndorf and Glenelg.

Photograph above was taken from Glenelg. Thanks to Ms Rachel who got the stone and shell from the sea (or wherever she found it).

My life here is still alright, not too bad. And hopefully I get to find some jobs or internship to do before I go back. I still have a long time to go before going back for good. So I must not waste time =D

Take care people! And do follow for more news about my life here. Cheers!

My 52mm UV filter has arrived!

It's finally here!! Right after my mom sent me my portrait lens, I didn't really use it much as I want to keep dust away from entering the lens. I then went to eBay to get myself a 52mm UV filter for that particular lens and been waiting since then..

Now, it's finally here, and what I need to do is to get a long holiday, which is coming in 2 weeks time, and start taking photographs with both lenses! I can't wait for it! Seriously! I am wishing for the long holiday and all those happy moments I can find!

Take care peeps!

I've been attacked...

...by insects!

LOL. And because of that, my friend said that I attract insects. Look at the photograph below.

I don't know if I've been attacked by the mosquitoes or the bed bug. But what I can say it, whichever insect that has bitten me, it was quite a poisonous one. It caused itchiness and irritation to me, throughout the whole week!

Anyway, take care peeps!

World’s Coolest Intern

The title says it all, Standard Chartered Bank is currently looking for the ‘World’s Coolest Intern’ to join their Breeze mobile banking team in Singapore. I'm not sure if I can get it but I'm taking my chances. Here goes!

I can probably start by briefly introducing my situation. I'm a Malaysian student currently studying in Adelaide, Australia. I'm currently persuing a Degree of Bachelor of Arts (Communication and Media Management) - a 3 years degree, which offered by the University of South Australia.

Knowing that I'm graduating in the next 2 months, I'm trying to search for jobs opportunity or internships and I happened to come across Nuffnang's "Be the World’s Coolest Intern with Standard Chartered Bank" post entry. Since I'm searching for a job, I thought, "why not just give it a try even though I might not stand the chance to get it? No harm trying" and hence this post entry.

My laptop will always be switched on every morning and the first few tabs can be seen on my browser will be 'Facebook', 'Twitter', 'Gmail', 'Yahoo! mail', Uni's email (Microsoft Outlook) and my blog. So I guess I've actually did meet some of the criteria listed, didn't I?

I will be happy enough if I get the job as it's just a 6 months internship in Singapore. Reason?
  • Well, as I'm still considering of further pursuing my Master course but I don't want to do it right after graduating from my Degree. I would like to have some working experiences before continuing my Master program.
  • Secondly, I never been to Singapore, and I believed that I can make a good use of this opportunity.
  • Thirdly, I've been staying in Australia, meaning I can take good care of myself and am independent enough for most of the thing. I believe I can adapt to the environment and culture easily too.

If 'being hardworking', 'ask lots of questions when facing problems' and 'trying to fulfill every instruction given' are considered 'Cool', then I guess it means that I'm cool! Hence, I can also be one of the 'World's Coolest Intern'! You just need to give me the opportunity for me to prove myself.

I've had work for Taylor's University College as Student Helper and Student Ambassador while studying there in 2007-2009 and had volunteered myself in some events organized by big organization in Australia (2010) if this adds some good points to myself.

Anyway, I'm done taking about myself. Thank you.

Take care people! And wish me luck!

Nope, no one has been kidnapped but what I want to do here is to share about my Drama Production assignment 1 - a 3 minute narrative piece which I've named it 'Kidnap'.

I know I've had already share it with you guys in the entry Another Short Update! but that was quite a brief entry about this assignment. This time, I'm gonna include a poster I made for this assignment and also the bloopers during the production.

Alright, so basically this 3-minute-narrative-piece is about a university student who had been kidnapped, tried to escape from the so-called abandon house but came across with quite a number of obstacles (not a lot though). The ending of the production is not shown and it's all up to you guys to think - if he managed to escape or not.

This is an individual assignment but we were placed into a group of 3 - to assist each other's production. As we had forgotten to check our setting, it was all recorded in full HD, so meaning we have a higher quality of image and also mean we need more time to render our videos during the editing.

I know my production isn't that great as compared to those who are really good at it, but I'm happy for my assignment - for now, as I know I've tried my best to do everything I could. However, I hope I can be better in the future, at least I know some of my classmates can do a very good job, and some are just like mine.

Do give comments on the shots and production but not the actors' acting skills. They are not professional actors and I know, acting skills do affect the whole production sometimes. However, I appreciate their help and I don't wanna comment about it.

So here is a video of the bloopers. Mistakes has been done and some are quite funny so I thought it would be nice to share it around with all of you!

Enjoy watching and have a great day peeps!

Pre-grad Party

Tonight's pre-grad party occurs kinda randomly. Not exactly a party but just seems like one, as though we've all finished all our assignments and waiting for graduation. Meh, I wish!

But, after class, we sort of hang out and chat about the most random stuffs ever and some of them were hungry and decided to order pizza from the local pizzeria. So, all the 6 of us, consists of 1 male and 5 females, ordered 2 family-size party-size pizza and a box of curly fries.

I'm still quite full from the late lunch I had earlier so I did not eat much. The remaining 5 girls were eating like there's no tomorrow. Freaky to see the way they eat also (I'll be killed if one of them sees this).

So yea, great time hanging out with them. And as usual, me and all girls group. Wonder why I always surrounded by girls? XD

Anyways, we should do this more often, at least when everyone is still in Adelaide, otherwise, I don't think we're gonna do that anymore after going back to Malaysia. Right? Future is hard to be predicted, no?

That's all for now, take care peeps! Good night!

I'm not smart but I ain't stupid!

"Sir, seriously, if you think I'm gonna show you my assignment and only plan to redo it today, on the very final day, you might as well fail me. Do you really think I will not do my assignment even if you don't bother replying my mail? Think again cause you're wrong! I even purposely went to print out a hard copy, thinking that you might want to have it instead of reading the soft copy, and you actually think that I will be like you other students who are still doing their work? You said due date is today and we have a lecturer class at 9am, even if I've not done my work earlier I'll make sure I finish my assignment by 9! Not later! Geez! Thanks a lot Sir!"

Received such a huge insult this morning indirectly. This shows that my lecturer actually received my assignment but refused to reply me. I don't know (and I don't bother now) whether if he is stereotyping or being a racist, what I know is both the lecturers of the same course, they are weird. I used to like them though, I love their class cause I never get to learn something so different in Malaysia. But the way they treated me, made me feel so disappointed!

Since this assignment is done, all I have left is a Drama Production, two assignments from Comm & Org and one more theater production installation to do then I'm free! Coming right up, Drama Production, shooting this Friday and Saturday and need to do some editing. And I better start on my Comm & Org too, as I have another lecturer who doesn't reply e-mails right away.

Don't understand why don't they use all these services when it's provided nicely for them?

Another thing I don't understand is why are there so many millipedes around the house, especially during winter and now - spring. It will crawl all around the house, the living room, kitchen, the toilet and even the room!

Aren't they adorable (yucks!) disgusting?

Luckily they are not as large as the one I saw in Google, otherwise this place would be like a living hell! Gosh! I'm being exaggerating here now but it's true! The amount of millipedes outside my current house is so... I shall let the photograph do the talking.

And this is just one corner alright. I haven't show you the other corner and those on the ground which have gone flat as we accidentally stepped on them, especially at night when there is no light. Freaky!

Finished my assignment!

So, during the mid semester break, I did not get to enjoy much as I've had 2 major assignment to rush on. One is about performance and technology - a 1200 words, 35% worth of assignment; and another is about communication and organization - a 3000 words, also 35% worth of assignment.

Knowing that I cannot rush both assignments on the same week, I spent some time of my first week to finish off my performance assignment and spend the remaining days for my communication work.

Who knows, after finishing my performance assignment, I found out that I've done it wrongly. Or to be exact, out of topic. The requirement asked for performance and technology but I gave them 'light, space and sound'. That time I don't have time to redo it so I thought of handing it up straight hoping that I'll pass.

On the due date, the whole class was told to be given an extension, and some of them still haven't finish their work. I find it quite unfair, but at the same time, relieve as I get to redo my work.

Hoping that I can score better this time, I asked my lecturer if I can ask him some question after the class but he told me that he will be teaching the next class and if I have any question I may e-mail him. So I did e-mail him that night itself and he should have more than enough time to reply me. But he didn't.

I managed to borrow some books knowing that he might not reply, keep checking my e-mail from time-to-time, hoping that miracles happen but until today, after finishing my assignment and handed it in, he still hasn't reply me. So what's the point sending him an 'unattended' e-mail?

His other students ask him question he will reply. But when I ask him to check my previous assignment to give some feedback and also some questions about my assignment, he did not bother to reply.

I think he has some racist issue. Even though I tried to be nice to him, he seems unfriendly. Haih~ He is a Dr. some more! So concern about title but not his (Asian) students.

The typical me


The Chinese sentence above is saying “not to be so calculative and narrow-minded, but be more generous and forgiving”. Indeed, sometimes I just feel like I’m such a calculative person, counting every bits of whatever I have. I know it is a good habit to save but overdoing it shows that you are very stingy, or worst – cheap.

And I don’t want to be known as a cheap person, I just don’t like that. Guess I should learn how to be more generous.

Another thing about me is being a narrow-minded person. And this personality trait seems so contradicting with what I am studying at the moment. Imagine telling people that I’m a communication student who is also an anti social person. See, how ironic is it? Not only being anti social, there are a lot more things that I’m not open to… yet.

Gah, I just don’t know what I want. I just need to start changing, but it’s always not easy to take the first step, and consistently keeping up. So typical me! Hahaha!

Take care there peeps!

p.s. I love my new layout for some reason. Like seriously!

Thursday, October 14, 2010

My 50mm f/1.8 lens has arrived!

My friends have been asking me why is my blog always look so dark, dull and emo. The previous two layouts are mostly in black (sorry no picture), compared with the blog layout way before, a totally pink blog, sort of have a huge differences. So I decided to change my blog's layout again, to a more simpler version. Shouldn't be too emo now right?

Anyway, a little update about my life. On Wednesday, I received a card from the post office telling me that I have a parcel awaiting for me. I knew the parcel mom sent me is finally here but too bad the post office has already closed when I discovered the notice. So I decided to go today, after my class and production meeting.

And here it is! My parcel, I was too excited to open it and had forgotten to take a photograph of it beforehand. Anyhow, I have a shot of the stuffs my mom sent me. The most important thing I was looking forward to get from here was my 50mm f/1.8 lens! And the remote control for my camera. I was so happy to see these two item to arrive safely. First thing I did was to check if it's working, to make sure it's not spoiled.

As you can see, my mom did send along Redoxon (a kind of Vitamin drink), an mouse and two bottles of eye drops. Thanks for fulfilling my wish mom!

Wanted to show more picture of the camera lens I got actually, but for some reason, 10 out of 18 photographs I took gone corrupted. So I just have to stick with one.

Anyways, hope you guys have a great day ahead as I should not be wasting more time on my blog already! Take care!

Bad holiday

Hmmm, I guess Im gonna be dead next week. Imagine having 2 research paper due the week after. I just hate this kind of holiday, can't really enjoy it much. Try to study even but it doesn't seem to work.

So guess Im having my holiday for the time being, but next week I will suffer.

In Glynburn currently. Gonna go get some fruits and possibly some soft drinks later. Unhealthy life style, I know =D

Haih, I need a job. I've been wasting money like water, and if I don't control my expenditure again, I'll be dead.

I realized Im not good in describing. So bad that I keep repeating the same thing. Guess Im just tired now. Will probably update later =D

Another short update!

Im currently in the library doing my assignment, and clearly Im sort of distracted from my assignments hence this blog post is created. Just plan to post a little update on what I did these few days.

Since Im one of the volunteers for the upcoming Moon Lantern Festival event, I was given the opportunity to attend one of the shows in conjunction of OZAsia - for free! I was given a choice, which is the Hand Percussion performance by a bunch of Malaysian. It is quite cool to see my fellow Malaysian to be standing on stage in front of me, playing all different kinds of drums. They are all so synchronize and trust me, they are good!

The day after, I've attended a workshop by them, for free also. We were taught and given the opportunity to play with the drum. So all 12 of us, who knows nothing about drums, started learning and sort of 'perform' in front of them, the gurus. It is quite fascinating as every beat or any movement you do during the performance, has a story behind it, if you get what I mean.

Anyway, pictures are not available at the moment, it's still all in my camera. Once I get it out, I can share a video to you guys. A video performed by the gurus. Should be awesome!

Before I leave, let me share a video with you guys. This is my production assignment and I hope you guys like it =D It's not an awesome piece but still okay I hope.

Take care peeps!!

I'm giving an excuse!

And so I've been missing in action for a few days. The reason being I was too busy lately, I don't even have enough time to sleep. Last Saturday, a friend of mine came to Adelaide from Melbourne for vacation. Seeing that she hosted me during my stay in Melbourne a few months back and I've promised that I'll be happy to do the same when she come over, I've to do according to my promises right?

But at the same time, I wasn't aware that I was having lots of assignments to do during that weekends. And a production assignment to due on Tuesday. So what I did was, I bring her around during the day, and do my work at night. And I ended up staying until 3 to 4 in the morning almost every night! I even stayed up throughout the night on Monday as I have some documentation to do.

So, this is my excuse for not being able to come in. Not a good one, I know. But at least I am updating now right?

My production, not that great, but I might be uploading to the net soon. Youtube or Facebook, probably will put in my blog under the right corner. Comment if you like =D

Now, I am re-saving my production again. I need to make sure it works on my laptop this time. And hopefully it will, otherwise I'll feel wasted. Who knows I can use it as part of my portfolio? Even though it's not really that nice. But at least I've done something right?

Oh! It's almost done!! Wooo!

Take care peeps!

Thought of being 'COOL'?

Ever thought of being a cool person? By 'cool', I mean you are capable to do something well or creatively. Whenever I am in my own world, yes, I am the coolest person of all as I can do anything I want, be anyone I want to be, and have as many things I can think of and successfully do all things right. That's how cool I am.

In reality, I am not that good. At all. However, I love hanging around with cool people. Sticking with them, makes me feel like I am somewhat cool as well, cause i know them all. It feels like a parasite hogging on it's host and try to feel their limelight. I even tend to be a copy-cat and imitate them once a while. Somehow, I feel satisfied with that. How pathetic?

But sometimes, being around them sort of demotivate myself. You see, I keep telling myself that "you can do it", "think positive" and "believe in yourself", and every time when I look at my work and compare with theirs, I feel like it's useless for me to even try. What's the point trying hard but never succeed? It's so not cool!

Sometimes, I feel like being a loner, being away from all the 'coolness' and just be myself. The most ordinary man of all, and in not far future, pick up a 9 - 6 office job and have a lifeless life. But on the other hand, I do wish I can be successful, be a photographer, be a producer, director, actor, event planner, ect. I just want to be SOMEONE like, just like how you want to be SOMEONE in the future. If, you understand what I mean that is.

Well, I hope my photography skills can be better. I hope my directing and editing can be better. I hope I can be more open minded. And I hope, I can be different!

Good night peeps!

Pressure on my head

By right I was supposed to update my blog last night. But when I get to the lab, it was already too late so I've decided to start doing my editing instead. And oh gosh I stayed there until 4 in the morning but it is still yet to be done! I really wish I can finish it on time, I am so worried now as I don't really have enough shots. What a fail director! And my proposal for Comm&Org, urgghhh!

By the way, a friend of mine just came down from Melbourne and will stay here till Tuesday. Since she and her friend hosted me when I went over to Melbourne, I should be doing the same. But assignments are all on top of my head now, pressuring me, feeling so tired and restless!

Gonna go to the beach tonight. Hopefully can come back early and start doing my editing! And probably think of something for my proposal?

Good afternoon peeps! Guess might have another post tonight, otherwise shall wait for the day after. See ya!

Grumpy day

Gah! I realized today the whole day I've been quite grumpy. It seems like everything annoys me easily, so especially when people are pulling some lame jokes on me, and act stupidly, or blur, I felt annoyed. So sorry if I really did offend anyone today.

I guess what I really need now is 'more rest', but it seems that the word 'rest' is quite far away from me at the moment. Seeing that Drama Production work is still waiting for me, topic of my 3k words Comm&Org research paper is still on pending, and another 1.5k words review or some sort for Light, Space and Sound... I don't even dare thinking about it.

Anyway, today is my second day of blogging after I changed my layout. See how long I can stay updating till the next 'abandon' moment!

Get ready to edit my Drama Production work now! Take care peeps!

Thursday, September 9, 2010


Finally, huh?! (This is what you are thinking at the moment, right?)

The past 2 months plus, I've been ignoring all my blogs and my MSN Messenger. And yes, I know I am bad. All I do is enjoy myself, watch movie, do assignments occasionally, Facebook and Twitter. Even when I am in Facebook I tend to close the FB Chat function. I guess if I'm feeling lonely, I'm the one to be blamed of right?

Anyways, as you can see, I have already changed the name and the layout of my blog. Wasted a few hours on something so simple, but yet time has been wasted. So I am not going to spend another few hours to blog.

In fact, I have assignments to do and proposals to prepare, I am not suppose to be lingering around here. So, tata guys! See you guys soon!

Good luck and Happy Holiday people! And not forgetting, Selamat Hari Raya to all my Muslim friends!!

p.s. Also, I would like to wish my parents HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! May your marriage be blessed with love, joy and companionship for all the years of your lives!

Semester's Over!

So my semester has finally comes to an end. It seems pretty fast though, not long ago I arrived Adelaide knowing nothing at all about this city the next thing I remember is I've already been here for 4 months. Semester officially ended on Monday after my examination is over. Woohooo! Melbourne here I come! But on top of all these non-stressful stuffs, I'm currently facing one problem. My room.

Just so you know I am supposed to get someone to take over my room, since I am supposed to move over to the other unit. I shouldn't make up my mind so quickly though, I should think about it first. But one good thing about moving over, I get my own toilet, and cheaper rent. If I choose to stay back, I need to keep my mouth shut about whatever I am facing now. So yeah. Neighther choise make me really satisfied, I can say.

If I need to go though so much hassel, I might as well look for somewhere else and stay out? With better rental and might include utilities as well?

I might make enermies in the process though. Haih. I don't know.

But anyway, this month's highlight is supposed to be my Melbourne trip. Now I don't know if I can enjoy myself or not. I might even consider not to move afterall? HAHA!

Spare tyre!

OMG. I know I like winter. But I don't like the fact that I get hungry very fast! I just had dinner like an hour ago and now my stomach is having some sort like a protest in my body! I am so suffering now!

1 packet of Maltesers Chocolate already gone down to my tummy. And guess what? I heard nothing gone down to my tummy. It's like, there is a black hole, or the bermuda triangle is somewhere in between my tummy and my throat!

Food in. Food gone. Stomach empty. Stomach upset. Stomach protest.

So what am I supposed to do now? Eat more? The thing is, the stomach feel empty, but if I eat more, the tummy will gain weight.. I already have problem hiding that big round spare tyre already! DX

It's WINTER already!

Thanks guys for your comment from the previous entry. Ian and Danny, I will take care of myself no worries! I know I've been sleeping late and I should stop doing that as soon!!

Anyway, it's winter already! The weather is getting colder day by day. But I can still sweat, like mad. I wonder why?

Should I start using winter jacket? But in the afternoon it's not really that cold. However the weather now is like.. cold, at 12.19 mid night.

I wonder how's Malaysia now? Weather wise, probably still the same.. maybe warmer than usual? Haha! I'm experiencing WINTER!!! Woo-hooo!

2.5k words assignment, DONE!

After camping in this lab for a few nights, I've finally finished off my 2.5k words assignment! I know it's not that hard to finish off a 2.5k-word piece of assignment but I really have no mood and motivation to do.

But going home at 6am everyday is so not good for your health. I guess I am falling sick soon.. cause I am feeling quite tired at the moment. Feeling sickish~

Hence giving me a very valid reason to stop blogging now. Haha XD

I shall update myself soon! Tata!

Locking out!

I cannot believe I am doing this again. Locking myself out of my room isn't fun. Luckily today is a Sunday, otherwise I will need to waste $120 just to get those people from Student Living to bring me the key. Since tomorrow's office hour, I will go down to the city and retrieve the key and send it back to them by 5pm.

I need to travel to and fro the city twice since I have class over there at 3pm. So I need to go earlier, get the key, and return the key before my class. It's gonna be a hectic day!

I just hope they don't give me lots of nonsense saying the key is not with them or what-so-ever. I just need to get into my room with peace. I wanna take bath too.. All my toiletries are in the room. Except for the toothbrush and toothpaste that is.

I wonder why will I forget to get my key even after reminding myself for a few times. Dang!

An alter ego?

I wonder if I have an alter ego?

If I have, will I feel better?

Living in a life with 2 faces,

having different lifestyles,

encounter different emotions..

It's nice to have an alter ego.

Don't you think so?

Noisy morning

Some of you were asking what is the cause of my tight jeans? Well, the answer is simple, really, it's all because I've already gain weight! My tummy is getting bigger and I assume sooner or later I need to buy new jeans!


This morning. Around 8am, I was disturbed by all these birds outside my room (like obviously). I believe they were all on the tree top and making love or what not, waking me up is not really nice.

Random update

Aiks.. I left my blog unattended again!

I so wish I have the initiative to come into my blog and at least type something every day. Make it like a diary. Or something like a diary.

Anyways, stuck in the Mac Lab listing to all my own recordings.. sound of the nature. And a P2 assignment is coming up soon. I knew it wouldn't be a good piece.

My jeans is so tight! And it made me feel so uncomfortable at my crotch.

Bah, talk about being random, I am totally random now!!

I feel like going to the toilet now (oO)

Happy Birthday | Sister

Dear Sis,


Well, nothing much to say actually. Coz I am not used to do this. And you know lar, I don't normally give you anything right? I guess all I did was just saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you. That's all...

So, since I am not around this year, I am sure you are not expecting much from me too. Better still, less expectation, less stress from me.

But then, out of your expectation, I actually already did got you something. And that something is actually located in my cupboard. So, all you need to do now, is to finish reading this entry, then go up to my room, search through the cupboard.

If I am not mistaken, that thing is in a plastic bag. And it has 2 things inside, and I am telling you to use it instead of keeping it alright. I will demand for prove. Don't understand what I am saying? No worries. Go upstairs now and search for it.

Once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you. Have a good time and pleasant birthday!

Back from the break!

I know, I know. It has been long, since the last update. But I was busy before this, with tons of assignments and stuff. But of course, my assignments weren't that many to explain that I only come update today. After the assignments, as usual, I went to relax myself. Went out with friends, sleep late, go out, sleep late... and the same o' routine.

So finally today I decided not to go anywhere. 1 hour and 15 minutes before class, I will be sitting down here doing all my personal stuff. For example, update blog? Hahaha! So many problems occured throughout my dissapearance here. But it's hard to tell what happened.

Turns out good, but...

I can’t believe that the star rating fall so drastically! I mean, why? Why this instead of that. I left that for such long time and it still remains good. And this is what annoys me. Why that is still remaining on a good rating but this drops like nobody’s business? Sigh.

Well, yesterday turns out good. Managed to attend the sport activity and assignment work too and everything goes on time. Thank god. Just don’t like the fact that I am not good at anything, I can’t judge properly and played like a sissy. I supposed? Or maybe not that bad. I don’t know anymore and I don’t care!

Tired week..

This gonna be short. I don't know what to talk about. Feeling tired these days. Like there are a lot of things to do but I am just procrastinating. Something is gonna happen tonight. I need to attend both places and there is just not enough time for me to make it. Both are equally important.

Sigh. I hate it when something like this happened. I just wish that everything goes on schedule and please let me be home on time. And I felt regretted to join it as I realised we need to pay for it and not doing it for free.

Uni wonders..

You know what? I actually cannot believe things I'd just borrowed from the library. I mean, I never thought I can borrow dvd to watch. Cause all these dvd I borrowed, are not quite educational.

Tell me about it, what can you learn from Desperate Housewife? Maybe it is educational, who know, but I think this is more to entertainment. And yes, I borrowed the first season of Desperate Housewife cause I never watched it and feel like watching it now.

So which one should I get? CK Free or Hugo Boss?

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

Not so jolly

There are times I know when I should stop doing something. What I wanna say is I know my limit. At least I think I know mine. And when I think of getting that thing, it's all because of the feeling I am having now.

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

There's a CRACK!!

Saw the patch on the ceiling? It wasn't that bad initially. But the size of the patch grows throughout the days and now, it's moving its way to the kitchen... so 'OMG' right? Just like the whole ceiling is going to crack soon.

Friday, April 2, 2010

Lazy for Assignments!

You know what? 2 assignments to due in 2 days time and I am still slacking and feeling lazy to start on either one. Damn, what am I supposed to do? Wait till the last minute?

Chillaxing night.. not so

Well, since i can go online by my phone, I think I can try something random. So from today onwards, I might update whenever I feel, by sending to my mail and upload later to my blog. Troublesome? I know, bah!

Wednesday, March 24, 2010


This entry was supposed to be uploaded a few nights back. But due to the connection problems and all sorts of problems I am facing now, I've keep dragging it and ended up not doing anything. Sorry.

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

I'm back!

So how’s everyone lately? Sorry for abandoning my blog for quite some time and I promise I will try to update it as frequent alright? The picture of the flower above is dedicated to everyone who is reading this entry.

Happy Birthday | Mummy

Dear Mummy,


I just realised yesterday was 15th February and luckily I come online today, otherwise I might upload this late. Anyways, I would like to give you a birthday present.

JiaXin, please do me a favor, go to my room, search through those A4 boxes and you will find a small present with a card. I know, I know, there are lots of A4 boxes and they all looked the same! So I'm gonna give you a hint:

  • Search through the A4 box with a STAR sign on in.

I believe you've gone through the box the other day, and I am hoping you did not mess up mom's present.

Pass both the little present and the card to her for me. Thank you.

Once again, would love to wish you HAPPY BIRTHDAY, and hope you like the present I got you. Though it's small and not really a nice one. My other messages can be found in the card.

Enjoy. Take care. Be healthy always!

Your beloved son.

Good weather today!

Finally back on track, don't forget to read the entry about yesterday, posted on the same day too. It serves as a diary:

p.s. No photographs attached.


11 Feb 2010 1045hr Adelaide time

Today’s weather is considered very good! Why? Let’s start with the time I woke up. Since my room is facing the east, every morning when the sun shines, even though there is a sun shade/blanks blocking, the heat can still be transmitted through and my room will become like an oven. I will start sweating and it really feels so uncomfortable! Then from day 1 till yesterday, I will definitely wake up before 0800hr which is 5.30am Malaysia time. But today, with good weather, mainly because it was kinda cloudy outside, I woke up at 9 instead! I do sweat though, but not as much as usual.

It then started drizzling when we were about to leave to Uni. I left the Uni around 1600hr wanting to go to the city and it was still drizzling, luckily it stopped when I reached the city.

Today, I went to Ikea for dinner. William and Javin told me about the pasta buffet in Ikea, meaing we will have unlimited rounds of pasta, and you only need to pay once! How cool is it? Since I skipped lunch again, I had 3 plate of pasta, damn fattening I tell you.

Later on, we headed to Harbour Town and went into Woolworths aka Woolies (according to them) for some grocery shopping (again). Headed back to the city at 2100hr and took the other bus back to my place.

Well, this is it. I’ve spent my day travelling around and spending so much now. Broking soon though!! But I like the way I am going to the city, 6 days in a row since Day 1.

Visiting China Town

10 Feb 2010 1145hr Adelaide time

Well, what happened today? We went to the Uni thinking of doing some amendments on our fees and health care insurance but they ended up telling us to make an appointment with the person in charge tomorrow. So after that, we went to the computer barn and log in to the net in order to go through on our subjects since we are supposed to enroll tomorrow. I really don’t know what to do, or which subject to choose as there are so many courses available. Some of them seem to be really interesting but I am not allowed to pick that due to some reason.

Well, we will see how tomorrow.

William contacted me today and we met up in the city. Basically I went to Randle Mall and met up with Ivan and Javin first then William came over to their place for a meet up. Had a chit-chat session at their place till dinner time, only we headed to China Town for dinner. Woohoo, first time going to China Town!

After that, we pass by this ice cream shop, Ivan said that it’s really nice and he bought a tub of ice cream. William got me a cone and guess what, it cost $4 per cone!! We went back to Ivan’s place and had some more ice cream!

I left around 2150hr to the bus stop, and my bus reached around 2215hr. Well, basically had a great day today =) It’s supposed to rain today, but it’s still not raining! And I hate the wind cause it creates some weird noise on the roof and it sounds so freaky!

4th Day in Adelaide

Wanna know what happened to me on my 3rd day of arrival? Do read on! The following entry will be one of the backdated posts I've typed out on Microsoft Words during my free time. It serves as a diary:

p.s. No photographs attached.


09 Feb 2010 1159hr Adelaide time

Today was considered a special day. In the morning, we went to the city again to work of our stuff. And so, finally we got our self a bank account and an Australian phone number! Finally get to contact people and all I need now is to get more contact from my friends and Uni mates. We went to one of the food court around and had lunch before heading to a shop by the name ‘Cheap as Chip’ for some grocery shopping.

Shopping here you need to bring your own plastic/recycle bag. They will never give you plastic bag unless you request for it and that you need to pay 10 cent each. So if you want to save on that, buy a recycle bag for $1 or 99 cent at some places and bring it along wherever you go.

Guess what? We finally met someone we know from Taylor’s! They are staying downstairs all the while and because we don’t have any kind of connection, they can’t find us and we don’t know how to search for them too! Mas and Rubee are like our savior you know?

We went to the Uni to use the PC. I supposed we are not allowed to use it before registering our self but we were sort of desperate that time. Got online and pay our rental through online banking. Suddenly we saw someone familiar, they were Cindy, Ivan and Javin! What a coincident! Cindy had her friend Ian dropped by and after that, we went back to my apartment for some chit chat.

Later on, Mas and Rubee brought us to Coles. It was a 25 minutes walk from our place and we did some grocery (food) shoping over there. Back home around 2100hr and only get to cook for my own dinner. Dinner was bad though, I had, broccoli, tomato, bacon and an egg. I really need to learn how to cook now! Ish~

My 3rd Day in Adelaide

08 Feb 2010 2055hr Adelaide time

Almost 9.00pm and now only the sky got dark, 10 minutes ago it was like 7.30pm in Malaysia. And here I am, sitting in my room, facing my Clarence (my laptop) while typing this. Having 2 breads (one with tuna another with peanut butter) and a fried egg. I don’t know what to eat and just for your information, this is only my second meal! I had breakfast though, just a piece of bread with peanut butter and I skipped lunch due to some reason. Was exploring the city just to search for ANZ Bank’s headquarter, finally found it on King William Street and managed to apply for an account.

Bah~ The weather today is darn freaking hot! I assume it’s hotter than the day before, even now at night, my room is still so freaking warm!!! Damn, I hated summer! Ouch! Getting gastric I supposed, let me chew on something first.. *munch munch munch* Well that’s better!

I promised myself not to cry as I asked for such a life. But when I was eating on my balcony (yes, I chose the room with balcony), I felt so pitiful! So sad~ Arrgghh! Okay, let’s talk about something else.. the only bad thing to live in a room with balcony, to me, is it keeps me thinking that someone might have just climb up and walk into my room. I am quite paranoid in this issue, since I am staying in a three stories tall building, climbing up is quite possible!

What have I done today? Well, went to the University this morning thinking that I can sort out my courses and stuff but failed because the person in charge was not available till 1600hr and so both me and SueMay headed to the bus stop thinking of going to the city to search for the bank. Realizing Bank SA is just around the corner, SueMay decided to stay back while I went to the city alone.

Bumped into Ethel (a Canadian transfer student) in the bus and had a short chatting session till she reaches her stop while me, dropped off a few stops after hers and started my journey to hunt for ANZ Bank headquarter.

After got my bank account, I went back to Rundle Mall trying to get my phone number only realizing SueMay was already there. Since there are so many people in the shop, I’ve decided to drop by tomorrow as we had an appointment to catch. Headed to FoodLand, a mini market to get some stuff before heading home and finally got to meet up with the program support officer (PSO).

Alright. I don’t feel like carry on complaining or mumbling around anymore, I promised myself that I gonna take lunch tomorrow! Get myself some vegetable from FoodLand and cook myself some dinner!

So far, I have still don’t have an Australian number, no Internet access, haven’t been taking fastfood (i.e. Hungry Jacks, McDonalds, KFC,…), am getting darker, not a single drip of rain, and I enjoy walking in the city ALONE!

p.s. Who said it’s easy to bump into friends in the city of Adelaide? I bumped into no one today. Anyways, I guess it’s gonna rain soon, hopefully!

Dear all! I've finally arrived on Saturday (6 Feb) morning and I have no Internet access, so the following entry will be one of the backdated posts I've typed out on Microsoft Words during my free time. It serves as a diary:

07 Feb 2010 2130hr Adelaide time

It’s 9.30pm now and I am still having an empty stomach. Well, was quite tired earlier I slept till 8.30pm just now. Took a bath and still wondering what I want to eat. My second day in Magill, Adelaide and I am not quite used with their closing-shop-at-5.30pm-life-style. I am sorting photographs taken during Jean’s farewell and the more I see, the hungrier I am. Food, I need food.

I've finally turned 21!! Finally reached my legal age where I get my golden key to unlock the golden pad lock. It's supposed to be a very good day to celebrate... but wait, wait a minute, where is my golden key? Where is my golden pad lock? Where is my legal age contract? What? You are telling me I don't have all these on my 21st birthday? "NOOooOooOoOOoOOOooooo!!!!"

2010 Resolution & Wish List

Happy 2010! It has already been 9 days after my Taiwan trip, yet I cannot forget any bits of the wonderful moment throughout the 21 days study tour. Like seriously, how possible is it to gather 300 people from all around the country, and visit another country together, fly together, ride together, eat together, cheer together, fight together, learn together and lots more.
