merdeka

4 Comments


hi people it’s 3.19am here and i’m gonna go take a shower because i’m screwed up like that.

i think it might be a tad annoying how i have to tell you what time it is all the time (well i’m annoying myself, anyway) but i just have an inherent need to. i don’t know why. i just do.
especially when it’s late.

back in a bit, not that you will notice. i’m gonna finish this blog before i post it anyhow.

alright. smelling good now. i’m off to bed.

had some major rhinorrhea going on the day before yesterday.

it was the watery kind that bugs the hell out of you cos you can’t exactly blow it all out or suck it back in and it just keeps dripping and dripping and dripping. bloody hell. i think it was dust. the house is dusty.

also, there’s this tiny spot of rash behind my right knee which hurts when i touch it.
it looks a little like i have lyme disease o.0
curse the bug that bit me.

 

went out for steamboat with yp and co. yesterday night for her birthday which is today (happy birthday again yp!)  went to lobak at first but the place was freaking packed to the brim so we had to change venues :( boo the hoo.

pictures.

damn vain already ah, ruth?
(babe i forgot to tell you what lulu means!)

IMG_6852 yp and her bling present :)

on the way home.
see poyo, i told you it was too dark to see you :)

had a great time although we sort of only see each other once a year. miss our form six times when we would just slack and talk crap in class :)

i realised everyone has moved on in their uni lives but me… there’s this reluctance to let go… which may or may not be the cause of my lack of close friends in uni. so sad case. it’s not that i don’t have friends and i’m subjected to being a loner, it’s just that… well… i don’t know. it’s different. i keep telling myself i just haven’t found my niche but deep down i think it’s not going to happen.

so yeah. everyone, you know who you are, forget me not. you guys mean a lot to me.
seafood ftw!

(ruth, yp, don’t perasan. i’m not talking about you guys. i don’t like u guys.)

(at all.)

(hahahahaha just kidding. love u guys.)

(why do i have a feeling i am ss-ing here? :( )

(oh well.)

 

i just came back from yamcha with 3 sad kittens. had a ball. mouth’s a little sore. super happy for next week. sounds like it will be fun. [crosses fingers]

merdeka passed without any sign. didn’t even notice it’s passing. was among at least 50 people and not one ‘merdeka’ to be heard. not a flag to be seen all along the journey there and back. the only people that sounded like they were remotely in celebration were the rempits. tis a sad merdeka, this one. not that i’m very much of a patriot, i’ll be honest with that :) but still, what has become of us all?

 

p.s. yp, if you want the pics in colour tell me kays.
hope you had a great day :)

i am with fish

3 Comments

like, you know, ‘i am with child’?
hahahhahahaha why am i so funny sorry please ignore me.
i’ll come back to that later.

home for 5 days!
it’s like a freaking break terima kasih malaysia kerana memilih hari yang sungguh perfecto untuk merdeka. wtf.

in an excessively good mood now because i had a 5 hour evening nap today, there are 5 days of non-classes and i only have one test next week! whoop dee doo! (you know your life is pretty sad case when you are ecstatic over having one test a week) but ah… c’est la vie, chéri.

 

IMG_6812

beard papa’s kerimo puffu desnye. 
much love.

i don’t know what’s the fuss with donuts (even krispy kremes), don’t hate me donut-lovers but i have to say this - cream puffs are obviously superior. okay, so they don’t have many flavours and they all look pretty much the same but there is something wonderful about cold creamy goodness in a little bit of pastry.

popped by midvalley before the ktm-ride home where i had to stand for ages and a pretty girl clawed my face in which it is proved that aesthetically appealing people get away with things more easily because i wasn’t really pissed at her nor am i now although my face is a little raw. or it might be because of my current somewhat ^^ disposition :) now, you must be thinking what is this la, why did some psycho girl claw you, siao issit? well actually she was trying to get off the train and i was standing very near the pole and she was wearing heels and inertia worked its wonders and she tried to grab the pole and she missed and she had long nails and my face was next to the pole and her thumb jab-grazed my cheek with all her body weight. the end.

what a wonderful story. now children, the moral of that story is don’t stand next to the pole. at least not with your face really near it.

so anyway, we were in midvalley and had lunch with jess at that korean place in gardens again (where the cashier said ‘kamsahamida, darling’ to me wtfkaukau). we always eat there. le sigh. <—mengeluh memikirkan kesedapan sotong and sup kimchi. bukan kerana sudah bosan. haha i love you malaysia. blue birds fly. frustrated at myself for not being able to regurgitate parasitology properly today. i had cheese. the cat vomited cause it ate too much. candy apple. petechia. ok end of randomness.

here we are in yo sushi,

IMG_6815

i need more hair, less acne… and bigger boobs why you’re at it, fairy godmother.
oh oh and don’t forget the nose bridge and a bajillion bucks thankyouverymuch.

IMG_6814

jess with her new, wig-like hair and huilih with her tempura.

 

tempura.
prawn.
seafood.
fish.

okay~
linking successful.

let me show you my fishes.

IMG_6742

you scared my fish! look at their expressions lol.

i was never all that fond of keeping fish actually because i find them a little boring. there’s not much interaction. i mean, you can’t pet them, they don’t make any noises and they don’t come when you call. not that cats do, unless i have food or they think i do. most of time, they just give me that condescending glance which says “what do you think i am, a dog?”.

IMG_5068

come on… a little cooperation here, marmaladedua.
i’m trying to make you look pretty. you are not the godfather.

image

although admittedly, you do a pretty good impression.
yes? no?
maybe, i dunno.

can you repeat the question?
you’re not the boss of me now, you’re not the boss of me now~
and you’re not so big!
bwahahahaha. i feel like watching malcolm in the middle. 
don’t you just love malcolm in the middle? i personally adore it. they should’ve continued. it could’ve been the next friends.

hang on, i’m starting to go overboard with digression. where was i… right. so fishes, they’re not much fun. never really liked them. but i was bored and this giant wine glass was just sitting on that shelf in the mall calling out to me so i answered it’s call wtf. after which i went and got fishes to put in it…

come to think of it, the whole thing is sort of backwards, getting fishes for the bowl rather than a bowl for the fishes. i’ve grown to like them over the last 5 days i’ve had them on my desk. something to watch. plus i’ve a remedy for the lack of interaction: i made a speech bubble and stuck it on the side of the bowl. they come around and mouth at me all the time so i thought it’d be cute. haha.

IMG_6805

me fishes, all three. me customised free-with-milo clock. me little pot of green(BASIL!). me dedication bear.

i tried to make them say hello to you guys too.
(and by that, i mean i held my camera really still and waited for them to swim up to the speech bubble. lol why ah? why am i so lame-o. discovered that getting them at mid-gape is really really hard and they swim up front way less when you hold a silver block of metal against the glass.)

IMG_6767fish #1
smallest babe.
i like it the most cos it swims around really fast a lot. 
btw, in case you missed it, the water’s not really that murky. my wall is yellow.

IMG_6783fish #2
mini-koi-looking thing.
major disappointment cos when i picked it out it looked damn cute but upon getting home, i realised that it’s scales were sort of coming off in places and you can see it’s guts through the white parts.
  IMG_6799fish #3
big fella.
he’s the brightest and most photogenic (wtf fish also got photogenic wan meh). like the fish version of ginger.

omg i just had a revelation. i should have gotten one orange, one orange and white, and one black fish… like my cats at home. why didn’t you think of this earlier, xinli… why?! sigh.

i haven’t named them yet because i don’t think they will last very long and frankly i don’t care because they cost me 10 cents a pop and i don’t get emotionally attached to fishes. i blame this on my upbringing because when i was kid, one of my dad’s fishes jumped out of the aquarium, died and my grandmother cooked it for dinner. hahaha sorry. i wanted to get black mollies at first but these were cheaper, look happier and are a sort of test-run. please forgive my disregard for their lives :)

up and finding a job

0 Comments

 

jobcentral

it was a hard decision… i mean, i don’t wanna put my eggs in too many baskets (lest they should go missing or get eggnapped or something), but i finally made up my mind.

i’m gonna apply for number 2!
seriously, that job was made for me. and i get a perm! lol.

jokes aside, i didn’t apply at jobcentral (or anywhere for that matter). it was spam. and i’m just curious… but why the hell would an 8-ton-lorry-driver come up in the same list as a chemist and a quantity surveyor???

 

and you know what else??

i can totally kinda sorta do that ‘the rock browlift’ now because of an eyebrow plucking accident.

Snapshot_20090823_5
totally.

i also suspect i have some sort of bowel problem. read: pimply chin.
or or or it could be my menses because i know i’m not constipated, i just shat yesterday.


and… you probably didn’t need to know that.

so let’s divert your attention with pretty, pretty things :D

Snapshot_20090822

the evening rays :D 
lovely.

which reminds me, i can’t believe i STILL haven’t seen a rainbow this year!!! major rainbow shortage or what??

probably ‘what’… which might or might not be fate-talk for ‘you need to get out of the house more’. it’s just too bad i don’t speak fate ;)

 

image

oh and WHY DIDN’T ANYONE TELL ME UP’S A TEAR-JERKER?!

cry die i.

LOVED it, to say the least.

loved the cloud and the sweet stork.
loved the fact that alpha’s defective-collar-voice sounded exactly like yzma’s when she turned into a kitty.
loved carl and ellie’s story. (woo ellie you’re in UP!)
loved kevin and the non-annoying woody woodpecker vibe he had going on.
loved ‘the cone of shame’.
loved DUG. omg love loved him! bestest.
and who wouldn’t LOVE THE HELIUM BALLOONS!!

went to watch despite my brother being on edge about h1n1.
gosh. all these people who are so freaked out… their paranoia is getting on my nerves.
if you are one of those people, i’m sorry, but we can’t be friends anymore.

kidding. 
if i were serious, i be freakin friendless at the rate this is going.

 

 

ps. i am very the pissed.
i just bought this majolica majorca neo eyeliner autopen thingey last month and today, at watsons, there was a ‘buy one free one’ offer. X(

a tragedy, your magesty

well said, funny baby. well said.
 
god i haven’t laughed this hard in ages.
hang on, let me go watch it another 10 times…
 
LOL
 

alright then, now that we’ve set the mood…

 i’ve a PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

do not, i repeat, do not… ask me to dye your hair. ever.

unless you are opting for the major-fail look, which i doubt you are.
therefore i think it’s best to set the rule of thumb: xinli is not made for dyeing hair. period.

   IMG_6615_thumb2IMG_6621_thumb2
before and after

it doesn’t look so bad in the picture but trust me, it was bad.
ah bi i’m sorry but you cannot be pissed at me cause it was an informed decision to allow me the honours and you promised you wouldn’t blame me!!! :D
and besides we fixed it and now you have someone’s name to dat should people ask why’s your dye-job so shitty, which i presume you will without hesitation :(

went to watch ‘the proposal’ on wednesday…

image_thumb1and i loved it.

i loved it so much in fact that i went and hunted down ‘definitely, maybe’.
lol. too obsessive?
butbutbut ryan’s awesome~
(although not a very believable father)
i’m contemplating whether i should rewatch ‘two guys, a girl and a pizza place’ now. bwahaha.

 

kay, nuff said. creepy story time. that day right, we (plh, ells, lck n i) were having lunch in johnny’s before the movie and we were seated next to the glass wall which separates us from the mall walkway… when all of a sudden this big guy in shades with a backpack on this back comes right up to the glass and just stands there… and watches us eat.

so then, naturally each of us thought one of us knew him because who in their right mind would just stand there and watch people eat, right?

but nooo… it didn’t take us long to conclude that it was a complete stranger and i guess he did have a few screws loose up there because he continued to stand and scrutinize for a good 5 minutes (which felt like an hour). wtf betul. i don’t think any of us dared look up at him save for sneaky side-long glances. even when the waiters tried to get him to leave, he seemed reluctant.

dayemm creepy man.

and the worst part is, it was a little freaky cause he looked completely normal… if you throw the shades out of the equation, that is. shades, indoors, non-blinding light. they don’t mesh. we really should have figured it out sooner.

wokays, back to my druggers i go.

:)

are you glad or are you GLAD?

not only am i back, i’ve finally updated my layout! been using the classical template for way too long now. but the thing is i don’t know how to edit the new version all that well :( so stuff are a tad wonky… but i solved the consistent capital letter headings! yay. me no likey caps. aaand the fact that it looks different in IE and opera is annoying. aishh. and and and i don’t know why but opera wont let me sign in to the dashboard or my google account!! stupidass browser.

 

updating you on more recent stuff… before i move on to the ancient history that i love so much –
aka ho-ho-holidays! bukan horlicks.

not fond of that.

it easily joins the ranks of essence of chicken amongst other dislikes i thought i’d have grown out of but never did… and probably never will. do not offer me those things ever, it will always be a no.

really.

don’t bother trying.

i think i’ll live without the “wholesome, nourishing goodness” thank you very much.

 

alright then, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way…
let us begin our reverse chronological adventures into the stupendously mundane uni life of xinli the [insert what adj you may] !

(i’m partial to beautiful, intelligent and perhaps awesome in general but i guess it is up to you.)
[telepathically wills you to pick one of the above]

not working?
well it was worth a try.

eh, WHO WANTS TO WATCH ‘UP’ WITH ME???

~

yesterday i decided to have a good long sleep and allow myself to wake up when i wake up cause i haven’t done that in a long long while (morning classes and weekend activities).

so i woke up.

and it was 4.57pm WTF. i thought my phone might’ve kong-ed so i went out to check the wall clock and it was 5.00pm!!! what the hell. i snoozed after waking up at 12pm for a whole 5 hours. that’s some serious sleep, people. even for me.

~

 

yesterday morning, i was here.

damnit. still love it.

then off to fong lye tea house in gardens for dinner.

052

(picture from new phone which takes pictures!!!)
(yes! i’ve lived thus far without one.)

food was pretty good but not take-a-number-and-wait-for-ages-just-to-get-in good.

and then we went in 20 mins late to see some stupid louis khoo show. it was alright, pretty funny but quite annoying lor the over-acting and total lack of point. i’d take old school stephen chow over this any day.

 

friday morning, IR lab: used the cutest ever jade mortar and pestle! it was the size of a tambun dao sa pia.

lab lab labbety labs.

i kinda messed up my gram stains but hey, look…

no, i will not make any effort to connect stuff together.

pictures from the pharmacy CC dinner: where we assign characters for juniors to dress up as with no clear information on where they will be going! which means they have to wear crazy things and walk along the main roads for all to see… as per last year :) but this year’s a little different cause each character will be played by 2 people and it was sort of like a little dress-up competition.

try and guess who they’re playing!

 

IMG_6220

IMG_6222 IMG_6228IMG_6224

no points for guessing who’s in the centre. it’s a spot on depiction. :) in the bg we have a YCF (yellow coverage fellow aka digi-man) and sailormoon!
nipply shemale: ru hua and my buddy: karen mok’s character from sek san!
