with 3 different aims, decided to pursue their dream. They met up, 8.30a.m., and started off their journey.
1st stop, Klang Bak Kut Teh. not a fan of Bak Kut Teh, but once in a while, is ok with it. Same place, less crowd, more choice.
a variety of tea to choose
chinese crullers - a must with Bak Kut Teh
I prefer lean meat over fatty ones
if you like innards, you may ask for a mix.
braised egg and tofu - my all time favourite! well, can't compare with home-make ones.
As saying goes by:' stomach full, energy boosted.' we are ready to head on our destination. 1 hour later, here we are!
we survived the crowd!
better than UM hostel, agree?
crowded book fair. not as expensive as expected.
price system used on board.
nice artwork. the concept of "picture tells a million stories" us well-applied here.
fighting with little kids to take this photo. but don't know what is it actually. haha~
donation can't be missed out, since it is a charity-based bookfair.
Logos Hope do sail a lot!
and the volunteers are from a wide nation. no discrimination here! some country (erhem..) should learn form them!
Gloomy sky + frightening lightning + thundering thunder when we left.
TATA~ till we meet again, Logos Hope! Belle de vous repondre!
How you come, that's how you go back. so, taking the same transportation, 3 people, with dream fulfilled, headed back. away from food for some time, their stomachs were growling. Dinner? where? (think think think think think......) End up, SS2 Sagambut Seafood Noodle Restaurant!
heard from this place since a long time ago. wanna try it out for a long time d. never have the chance due to lack of company. thanks to both gentlemen, who responsed to my suggestion. (guess because they were lack of idea too :P )
my choice of clear soup
NTK choice of curry soup
Edie choice of tomyum soup
taste-wise, the clear soup was the best. savoury + sweet. (MSG? maybe.) but who care. as long as taste nice. it will make you drink till the last sip! the curry and tomyum were quite heavy for me. maybe of the noodle they chose. or the soup itself was actually too savoury to my liking. though pricey, think it worth! YUM!!
With dinner, their journey come to an end. Great outing, great chit-chatting. Thanks guy for accompanying. Let's plan another! ^^
PS: this damn silly taxi intended to cheat us! Offer RM30 to Logos Hope. Thought we were kids, never read thing is it? we planned our trip ya, uncle! the price for shuttle bus to-and-fro + entrance fee is only RM11!! DON'T MESS WITH US! lol~
3 months of work.. 1 second, 1 sentence, 1 headshake, all gone. it's ok. i am fine. don't worry. T.T
people are now working hard on their extended abstract. some thesis. some even on their slides. and i am now somehow, just at the beginning.
first, cells contamination. next, waiting for cells to be donated. then, slow cell growth. by the time my cells are growing so well, so fat, so beautiful, incubator down! no carbon dioxide supply, plus public holiday, meaning everyone living on the land under the name of Malaysia is off-duty!
new cells take time to grow. so, i try on the old cells. and, you say that may be not valid. fine. now, i have no cells to work on, and how do you expect me to get the result for the latest, newest thing you want me to try?
i know. this is research. circumstances sure happen. but, why me? why not others?
it is fated. the more i want to leave KL, the more i seem to stuck here.
the more i want to return to normal life, the more i need to wake when people prepare to sleep.
the more i want to stay strong, the more i am discouraged.
i wonder, can i graduate?
feel want to tell mum every single little thing, but she wont understand, even though she make herself sound like she know. somemore, nah... don't make her worry is more important. after all, she cant help too.
i know i can turn to friends. but everyone have their own burden, and they do not have the responsibility to listen to my little tiny thing. somemore, yea... i am bad in oral-expressing.
i realise, my Leo characteristic, is slipping away. or, maybe, i never own it.
i dont have the force to move on now. i know i have to, and need to, but i have no direction now! how can i continue my extended abstract? how i am going to do my result and discussion? how? how to start on thesis? how to start on slides?
oh.. i just feel bad.
"oh, you just think too much." yaya.. i am exaggerating.. in fact, there is no big deal.......
i just need a goodnight kiss before i hit my pillow, by daddy.. i suddenly miss him damn much!! cause in this condition, if i am at home, he will cheer me up with all his silly jokes. and i longed to sit on his lap now.
should i go to lab tomorrow to continue my work on the old cells? or should i just sit here and wait for the doomsday?
ohhh..... i am just sooooo lost!!!!!
can i just escape and go home????????!!!!!!
can i, please......................................... i beg you................................................... please.........................................................................................................
seriously, everything is making me more homesick! i miss my home!!
and, i miss my confident.
i pray hard, crossed my fingers till my knuckles turn white, and will just do anything, for a smooth journey till the end of my research project.
I have my fringe back!
how is it?
yea.. i know.. it look kinda silly..
as long as i like it!
and i adore it..
it is done by my mum!!
thank you mummy~~
Here are some interesting stuff I came over when pouring over the latest CLEO magazine!
Title: 10 ways to Embrace Freedom
1. Go braless if you can afford to, but definitely go commando for that freeing feeling! Another plus point? no VPL! ** Going commando is the practice of not wearing underwear under one's outer clothing. - Wikipedia ** VPL is where the panties of a woman are visible through material of lower-body clothing. - Urban Dictionary Norm at home! should have go on trying it out in public! LOL! VPL seems not bad too.
2. Can't imagine being seen without make-up? Try it! No one will look at you funny.
3. Walk into that expensive designer store, look interested in something outrageously costly, say loudly in posh accent, "It's so affordable, but it's so not my colour", then walk out. This is interesting! Going to try it out!! Who's with me? ^^
4. See a total hottie on the streets? Strut up to him and tell him so. Even better if he's with a girl! And, hey, this really really interested me!!!!! Definitely worth a try!!!!! Can anyone tell me where to find one? :)
5. If you're addicted to online social network, put up a post that you're freeing yourself from Facebook, and then feel free to change your mind later.
6. When you reach the restaurant, ask if they could announce your arrival. And when the waiter is walking you to your table, look for a better one and declare you'll sit there instead. Before that, do make sure they don't charge extra on your bill later for all the troubles. haha...
7. The next time you get a telemarketing call, say you're not interested in what they're selling, but perhaps they might be interested in what you have for sale, like a used car. Think of it as a free ad!
8. Got a free Saturday? Take a domestic flight to, say, Peneng, do some eating and shopping, then fly back at the end of the day. We swear it's like being a celebrity! I hope I will have the ability to do this every weekend, but the destination will be MIRI!
9. So what if the dance floor is empty? Be the first and show 'em how it's done! That cutie is bound to notice you, too!
10. Raid your bestie's closet and borrow something you'd never wear in a million years. Then wear it. In public. Well, basically, my bestie and I are having common taste in clothing. right, Zhmm? (^_^)
So, anyone dare to take my challenge? hehehehe.... do inform me if you do so!
Meeting up with my dear BFF, KeYan at IKEA the day before she depart. Killing our time at Border Bookstore. Was scanning and flipping through all the magazines there, and look what have I found!!
Marina Bay seahorse on the cover page~
A travelling magazine featuring MIRI!! My hometown!! How proud I am with it. **beaming** Initially, I didn't notice it much, since traveling magazine is not my favorite. However, the seahorse sculpture on the cover page caught my eyes. Hey.. It's normal if you are from a city full with that sculpture. haha.. When I have a closer look at it, the word "美里 Miri" came to me so so so obviously. Excited, I grabbed it and turned to those related pages (below).
See that seahorse? It is made of some kind of metal (which I forgot :P), facing the wide South China Sea
Showing all the great places and food
When it comes to famous places, the Grand Old Lady and the petroleum museum beside it will always come first. As for food, 'kampua' or 'kolok mee' is un-escape-able.
Hong Yun Cafe and it's famous food~
And I am especially surprise to see that Hong Yun Cafe is extensively introduced. I mean, who will think that a coffee shop just within 5 minutes drive from my house, and is the place where we have our routine weekend breakfast will be featured? Not the people there, i confirmed. haha.. anyway, is so proud of it!! **beaming beaming**
MIRI~ oh, how proud I am with you~ and i do miss you a lot!!
Should I be happy? because i will have a few days of holiday due to my cell death? LOL.. anyway, thanks to the sudden death of this batch of cells, i got the chance to meet up with my bestie, Ke Yan dear~ ^^ should be meeting up her more since it is not easy for her to visit KL. but the silly Bersih rally locked me at home on Saturday, and the already-dead-cells locked me in lab the whole Sunday!! A Series of Unfortunate Event! haha.. however, really have great fun hanging by her side the whole afternoon and night. with her, i am the younger sister, which i seldom have the chance to be so. listen to her story, see her browsing over the clothes, owh~ i just simply miss her a lot! hopefully she will have more chance to come here. Ke Yan, come come!! next time you come we go eat Snowflake, eat Cupcakes, eat Jojo, go Amcorp buy cheap cheap book, go Tropicana, go One Utama....................... And yea.. she cure a bit of my homesick. thanks my dear~ muaks!! Ohya, hope you and him don't always quarrel la.. if he bullies you, tell me!!! hehe.. even though can't do much, but you always have my moral support ya~
Hanging out with her is great!!
Shopping mode is starting to turn on. Oh Oh~~ a bad sign. :P There are just too much to be owned, but too little to spend. List of thing in mind: 1) a purse 2) a handbag 3) a set of cosmetic 4) 1 or 2 pants/short pant 5) skirts 6) some formal wear 7) a camera and that's only a tiny part of it. haha.. hmm, should i pamper myself? why is it always so hard to buy something for myself? i always wonder.. i will just buy anything for mum, dad, sis and bro, without further thinking. but when it is for me, i will need to reconsider sooo many time till i end up buying nothing. haha.. WHY?! ok. promise myself. thenext time i have my pay, i will buy something for myself. what will it be?? hmmm...............................................................................................................
yea.. most probably, just a CLEO magazine. After I finish, sis can read ma... LOL!!!!!
我亲爱的preadipocytes啊。。我求求你们啊。。不要爽不爽就死掉可以吗？ 我对你们酱好，酱温柔，酱细心呵护；慢慢地，小心的把你们seed进小小的well；再让你们温温暖暖的在incubator里面睡觉，你们，为什么会死掉？？！！ 你们知道吗？你们死掉，我不只很难向巫妈妈交代，还很难继续我的research啊。。。等下人家做完了，回家了，快乐四处玩游，就剩我一个人孤零零在四面白得恐怖的lab里面，弯腰驼背在hood前面做research，你们，舍得咩～～～ LOL, as if all the cells know what I am talking about. Well, this is what going on recently with my research project. The cells seems to behave against our will. They were proliferating quite nice initially, but they are starting to protest now. First, they get contaminated. Well, may be it is because our wrong pipetting technique. Next, they are dead! What actually happen??? If things keep on getting wrong, Prof Umah say we need to "modify" our research "slightly". Oh.. can we, please, don't come to that stage? So, please, my dear preadipocytes~~ Please give us a chance~~ yea, we know you all are protesting because we are just using you all as trial, but, without you all, we can't proceed to our own batch of new cells. Please, you don't know how IMPORTANT you all are to us!! **Cross my fingers, bow my head, Dear Lord, please guide me through all this.**
诶，亲爱的你们，不是我要讲啦，可是，你们也可以有点自知自明吧。。地板上都是一条条黑黑的蚯蚓，你们不觉得恶心的吗？那个地板踏下去脚都会被粘着的状况，你们不觉得很恼人吗？那个差点让人滑倒的厕所地板，不让你们跳脚吗？好啦，我洁癖啦。可我到处都穿着拖鞋走，没直接和地板有近距离的接触都觉得恐怖，你们赤脚的，还很能顶。佩服佩服～～ I just cant understand. yea.. it is my problem maybe. I admit, I have slight 洁癖症. i can't stand hairs all over the floor, I can't stand the floor not mopped for 1 week, and i can't stand the toilet floor that is starting to accumulate slimy stuff. I mean, aren't housechores be a weekly, if not a daily, stuff to be done? Ya ya.. I am too over i know. Sorry.。 I know I am only a tenant for a few months so I don't have the right to voice out. Never mind. I can bear with it. Let me do everything for this few months, after all, I don't hate house chores. Should be glad doing it, because it means, I have a place to stay~ ^^ How nice, rather than hiding under the bridge.
第一，二个星期 "Hello, have a try of our Scott Emulsion." "Hello, 要不要试一下Scott Emulsion?" "This is Scott Emulsion. It is very good for your child. It contains........ DHA, EPA.......good for brain.........build immunity..........." 第三个星期 "Hello, 小姐，找卫生棉吗？" "Hello, may i know what are you looking for?" "Hello, cari pad?" "What brand do you usually use? Do you want to try our brand?" "Libresse is a pad with its unique design....no leakage.....adjust with your movement....soft.....no feeling......" 第四，五个星期 "Hello, have a try of our Scott Emulsion." "Hello, 要不要试一下Scott Emulsion?" "This is Scott Emulsion. It is very good for your child. It contains........ DHA, EPA.......good for brain.........build immunity..........." 第六个星期 "Hello, have a try of our Anlene Concentrate." "Hello, 要不要试一下Anlene Concentrate?" "This is Anlene Concentrate. It has four rimes more calcium than a glass of milk. It contains........ calcium.......good for bone, especially us, ladies............." This is what I am basically doing over my weekends. I, joined the promoter world. HIAK HIAK~~ never thought i will become one, since I am against it since don't know when. However,due to many reason, mostly because of $$ and the damn boring weekend, I eventually become one. Been promoting a few stuff. Learn a lot. Make a lot of friends, ranging from younger ones to elder ones. Talk a lot. Smile a lot. Gained a lot knowledge in terms of public transport. haha.. However, I have stop becoming one now. Reason, I have reached my initial crucial target (can anyone recall it? hehe..) and, I am kinda tired of going here and there, go out 2 hours earlier and back at midnight cause of waiting for buses. It just drained every strain of energy you have! Yea yea, i know, money is not easy to be earned. I never thought so. It is just that I prefer fixed location, and nearer place. That's why,I am going to start at GongCha this week onwards! not an easy job, and not a good pay (in fact, just around half of that as promoter. =( ), but never mind. my second target is not that rush, and this job interest me more! Some more, whenmy research actually start, it is more convenient for me to go for work. Hopefully, things will turn out well. **fingers crossed. head bowing.** again. :P
二十岁，我才刚刚开始我的大学生涯。二十岁，我的人生越来越多姿多彩。二十岁，我回到家还会向爸爸妈妈撒娇。二十岁，我很久很久还会发一张好人卡。二十岁，我偶尔还会像想不要长大，永远呆在爸妈身边。所以，当我听到蕃薯藤关系的堂妹要结婚了，眼睛简直就要掉出来！！二十岁，太小了吧？ I just cant imagine, how can a girl aged twenty be married? Ok, lets excluded those committed an "accident". haha.. 23,24 i heard before.but 20. isn't it too young? Some more, it is a girl from a quite conservative family. At first, i thought her mother might be against it, but, no! I am SHOCKED!! her mother totally AGREE it!! she even praised the guy. oh... so, the guy is rich, he treat your daughter nicely, he has a good job, but how long do you know him? I mean, they are just in a relationship for 1 year! If your daughter is older, maybe she can see him clearly. but 20! I JUST CANT IMAGINE! Well, again, it is non of my business and i know i don't have the right to comment on it, but, i just cant help it. Please forgive me.... anyway, i still think 20 i sway too young. for me, i wont step into the church so fast. i still have a lot to be done. I haven't earned enough, travel enough, play enough to get settle (or should i say, secured? LOL!) down. No way! (and i just told my mum I don't want to get marry. 我要爸爸妈妈养我一辈子～～haha!!)
bla bla bla..... I still have a lot to say, but they are just bits and pieces. not worth to be mentioned. haha~~ oh, ya! Sekinchan or Pulau Ketam? Please help~~ haha~~
everyone, Have a nice day, nice week, nice month, nice year......... =P

My heart feels heavy, my hands feel so too, even my feet agree.
the food lying there waiting to be packed, the luggage sitting there waiting to be filled, but there is no one helping them.
songs floating, fingers moving, eyes locked on screen, body stuck on the chair, the head just refuse to hit the sack.
oh!! the content of my heart!! please, please, please stop flowing! please don't leave my heart with four empty chamber. grabbing, grabbing, grabbing with all my effort, but they just flow through my fingers!!
please sleep my dear, please don't say so, at the moment, where my heart feels hollow, and echoes can be heard, crystal clear; when water is finding ways to my eyes, making me trying hard to blink them away.
i don't want to leave here. from the past, till now. never did i feel the enthusiasm to leave a peaceful town behind, and never did i feel the excitement of the hustling bustling city. there are reasons for me to stay, and they are adding on.
reality is such a cruel demon! that's why, i never like to face it, only doing so when forced. and, we are all being forced, as if it is the University course, get it, passed it, or you failed your 4 years program. >.<
Another summer day has come and gone away In Paris and Rome, but I want to go home Maybe surrounded by a million people, I Still feel all alone, just want to go home Oh I miss you, you know
And I've been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you They each were a line or two, I'm fine baby, how are you I would send them but I know that it's just not enough My words were cold and flat and you deserve more than that
Another airplane, another sunny place I'm lucky, I know, but I want to go home I got to go home Let me go home I'm just too far from where you are I want to come home
And I feel just like I'm living someone else's life It's like I just stepped outside when everything was going right And I know just why you could not come along with me That this was not your dream, but you always believed in me
Another winter day has come and gone away In Paris and Rome, and I want to go home Let me go home And I'm surrounded by a million people, I I still feel alone Let me go home Oh I miss you, you know
Let me go home I've had my run, baby I'm done I've got to go home Let me go home
It will all be alright I'll be home tonight I'm coming back home
