Hi! I’m geared back to blogging once again. About a couple of weeks ago, I re-visited the Crete island in Greece. HrM..I was there about 2 years ago. I love this place to bits. Don’t ask me why I ended up at the same island again when there are clusters of them in Greece. .err..simply because we are the infamous last-minute holiday maker? My dad has been trying to break me outta this habit for years but it hasn’t sunk in. No-la, I’m addicted to the beach, bumming around at the beach, making sandcastles, and wearing clothes that dad doesn’t like ;p Most importantly, a break-free from the hustle and bustle of the city of London. We took a full day to arrange our holiday ( yes, we planned to leave the next day :D) and we had all sorts of incredible ideas of where to go..places like Istanbul, Prague, Spain..The next thing we know, we were 30,000 feet above clouds 😀 Iï¿½ve got to admit, our trip was a blasts, and Crete island..really took my breath away!
Here you go, some photos for you guys..
Let’s drown here, no? 😀
maybe this one?
Chuo ming caught a crab! Bravo ;P
Pretty..pretty memories 😀
Oh boy, it’s almost 6a.m and I haven’t slept a wink. Anywayz, it has been a loOOOng while, hasn’t it? Now, where do I begin? Same old. My life as it is substantially revolves around the BVC (Bar Vocational Course). No romantic dramas of any sort. The never-ending assessments until May, court visits, dining sessions, job applications and the list goes on…it all made me feel as if I have lost my “lust for life”. I guess I don’t party as hard, drink as much as before. Somehow I have lost these enthusiasms at one point or another. What’s going on! Let the insomniac ramble on”You guys must have worked out by now, you will come to know this old and domesticated being that need to be taught the meaning of P-A-R-T-Y again: P
Thankfully, I still have my friends to keep me sane at all times. I suppose, beneath the elegance of a barristers’ suit lay an infinite effort to keep it going. Chinatown is like my second home for one reason. Hunger satisfaction. I eat like I’ve never eaten before. 😀 Oh common…that’s the closest thing I can get to mummy’s home cook food. *sob*sob*
O.K, ramblings aside. London Fashion Week was held on the 14th -19th February 2004. This is followed by the London Fashion Weekend which is on the Thursday 19th Feb- Sunday 22nd Feb 2004. “London Fashion Week-End invites the public to take part in the glamour of Fashion Week and snap up style tips and bargains. The event takes place in temporary tents erected in front of the Duke of York’s Headquarters on the King’s Road. Over 100 LFW designers selling clothes and accessories at standard retail prices.”
Retail therapy, anyone? 😀
Ohh boy..the sun is up..and I was meant to get up in 2 hr’s time. 😡
Tick.tock.tick.tock…The long awaited moment has finally arrived!!! Woohoooooo!! It’s the Christmas vacation once again! After being put through 2 and ½ months of sheer madness of intensive studying routine, it is definitely time for a good break. Day in day out, nothing but work work and more work, which seems like I’m close to having a mental breakdown. That’s how mundane one life can be when they are doing the BVC. The bottom line is..I can’t wait to fucking graduate!! Nevermind the fact that I’ll be a soon- to- be unemployed barrister, as long as I lead a stress-free life, i’ll be happy 😀 At the mo, Let’s just move away from this nasty topic…
Ok-la, I gotta at least give my life some credits. My housemate and I finally decided to throw a party last night. After having talked about it since the first day we moved into the flat, we finally did it. One of the highlights of the night was the DARE session. Yes, CM..it was your brilliant idea ;p Alex could never run away from his famous hokkien songs. He had to stand on the street in the cold, singing out loud his renowned hokkien song so that we could all hear him from the top of my flat. Everyone agreed that he had done a damn good job by entertaining us across the street 😀 I’m sure he wouldn’t mind showing off his talent a lil’ more if he need not freeze his ass off in that cold winter night. Another classic dare, cm had a half of a wine bottle shaft in his pants and the other half sticking out from his half zipped pants. Like he said, it looked like an unrealistic 15- inched long erection 😀 At the end of the night, it was all good fun and humour.
Mama and Papa will be arriving at the land of pee ( sweet scent of England 😛 hey the streets of England smells of pee!! ) tomorrow afternoon. Unlike previous years Christmas celebration, this year will be special with the presence of family warmth.. gee..I’m getting all christmasy…….i am Walking in a winter wonderlandddd…:P Merry X’mas everyone!!

Meng choo, shane and I
Before Leong goes FURIOUS about my sudden disappearance from the blog, ok, here is the major alert…SL is back with some serious blogging session!!! 😀 If I may convince you that I am an ever loyal fan of xes.cx. My daily bread that is 😛 For some reasons, Inns of court school of law (ICSL) does not permit me to access to the website. I wonder why..xes..too scandalous?.ekeke
It is hard to believe that it has been 1 1/2 months since I got back from Msia. Only 1 1/2 months??!! It feels like forever. I am gradually detaching myself from the warmth of Watson 16 *sob *sob. Miss every one of you so much?getting all sentimental..yikes.. Life is nothing like how it used to be in Sheffield, gosh..the BVC workload..it is unimaginable!! I swear I have never worked so hard in my life..not even during SPM..(I thought SPM is the worse and the stweeeepidessssst examanination that I have taken) Well, the BVC is not all that bad after all, at least I get to dine with barristers and occasionally with the Lord Justices. This got to be a once in a life time opportunity, it will be all good.
A series of upheaval have come between me for the past 1 1/2 months. I don’t know where to begin and I don’t intend to. Let’s just say that let the worse come to an end and pray for many happy returns. It is sometimes quite difficult to stay focus when the pain keeps come creeping in..i dread the sight of hospitals and doctors and nurses. *ouch, dammnit!. Many thanks to the people who have cared for me, I simply feel blessed. Remember, health is the most important thing ever!!
Guess what? I have been living without water for 3 long days!! At least, I still can buy drinking water from the confectionary shop downstairs, butttTt..i can’t cook, I can’t shower, I can’t flush, and basically, I can’t do anything without water!! Apparently, no one wants to take the responsibility as to the sudden cut off of water supply. Damn , such a pain in the arse I tell u. How unlucky..this is the 3rd time I?m experiencing the hell. My housemate and I are going to make Thames Water to compensate us, considering the time, energy, costs that we have incurred to call them and the frustration; they must come out with some sort of compensation. I don’t care!!!! hmph!!!! Apparently, my neighbour wrote them a 5 pages long A4 sized complaint letter which made Thames Water wrote him 2 cheques. Anyone good at writing complaint letters?..keke
I promise you guys with some pictures of the fall next time. It is beautiful 😀
These pictures were taken in Glasgow.
This one must excite you, leong! XES XES XES!! trademark it 😀
Emely babe and I. We’re under a magnifying glass ;P
If i’m not mistaken this is the Glasgow Science Centre, and also the Sydney look-alike!! 😀
And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
Where we’re gonna be when we turn 25
I keep thinking times will never change
Keep on thinking things will always be the same
But when we leave this year we won’t be coming back
No more hanging out cause we’re on a different track
And if you got something that you need to say
You better say it right now cause you don’t have another day
Cause we’re moving on and we can’t slow down
These memories are playing like a film without sound
So if we get the big jobs
And we make the big money
When we look back now
Will our jokes still be funny?
Will we still remember everything we learned in school?
Still be trying to break every single rule
Will little brainy Bobby be the stockbroker man?
Can we ever find a job that won’t interfere with a tan?
I keep, I keep thinking that it’s not goodbye
Keep on thinking it’s a time to fly
And this is how it feels
Will we think about tomorrow like we think about now?
Can we survive it out there?
Can we make it somehow?
I guess I thought that this would never end
And suddenly it’s like we’re women and men
Will the past be a shadow that will follow us ’round?
Will these memories fade when I leave this town
I keep, I keep thinking that it’s not goodbye
Keep on thinking it’s a time to fly
Lights! Camera! Graduation! *flashes*..*flashes* and more *flashes* everywhere. Long awaited day for everyone is round the corner. *Poof* time flies right before your eyes. From getting all excited to leaving Malaysia to Sheffield, tears- shedding in the airport, bidding farewell to all your loved ones, ( I can still vividly recall the feeling of leaving home for the first time, I swear I’ve never cried so much in my life!! ) to living with 4 British girls in a self –catered flat ( it was hell I tell you) to moving into Crookesmoor House ( it was certainly a sweet relief) to living with the loveliest people I’ve ever met ( the inevitable Watson-ers) to GRADUATION. AhHh well, we seem to past the age of high school rituals as pep rallies, homecoming dances, and senior proms. And also saying goodbye to Uni exams (let the text books stay there as it is collecting inches and inches of dust!!). Unfortunately (perhaps, fortunately??) I’m doing my BAR in London in the next academic year. It’s not the time for me to get away from the painful exams. That would be my problems next year, too early to worry about it.
They say every moment is becoming a faded memory. I totally agree with that statement. I find myself too worked up over things which are inevitable. I’m overwhelmed by the good things that will come upon me but am too fearful of the ending. Sometimes I wished they never come, so that I need not weep, as long as it lasted. I received a phone call this morning, which made my mind run a little wild. No…Not that way of course!! It has somehow made me realised that I have slipped away from the people that I loved. Being physically absent makes a hell of a difference. Absence make the heart grows fonder. BULLSHIT. It’s more like out of sight, out of mind? Before I go bonkers over my sweet little nostalgic mind of mine, I might just walk out of this fiction. Memories don’t last anyway. GoshhH…This is becoming too self-revealing. I feel naked. At least, not literally.
Possibly due to the sentimental effects of graduation and leaving this city and also am too- damn- free, I’ve been resorting to running. Yes..!! Run, Baby, RuNNnNn !!
Nothing feels better than a real friend coming upon at the most weakest moments of the night and putting up with all your nonsense and also building up the pillar of strength for you. How many true friends I have in life, I can honestly count them with my ten fingers. Not many. Part of me aches when you come to realise that people are being so pretentious in all possible ways, until you have no goddamn clue what’s real and what’s not. What to believe and what not to believe? Even worse, some can be so pretentious till not realising what they have done have caused damage to others, merely because of their uncontrollable big fat mouth. Such a pain in the arse. Bitchin’ and moanin’ ..and what more? Nothing gained out of it.
Empty, empty, empty…is this an obsession or what? I’m feeling kinda drained, could be possibly more on the physical side, haven’t had coffee since the end of the exams. Maybe that’s what explains it, but nOoOo..can’t have excessive caffeine in my system, coz I’ll go delirious..hahahaha 😛 Excuse my melo-drama tonight, it’s 2 in the morning. *wink*
To those who are bored of their nuts after the exams, check out popcap.com. DYNOMITE!!!!..And those who are not done with their exams yet, never NeVEr NevER start! coz I’ll guarantee you, once u start u can’t stop. Simply amazing 😛
I finally got to watch Matrix Reloaded today (after all the hypes about it ).Amongst all the ‘stylo’ actions and ass –kickin’ fighting scenes, there was this particular scene which was incredibly B-R-E-A-T-H-T-A-K-I-N-G!!! Man, u galz must know which scene I’m talking about *grin* Give me 5 to those who agree…OoOoOo…YEAHhhHh: D
WoOHoOo!! Exams are over! (One smack* Ouch! from wendee 😛 ) Got up pretty late today. Not a good way start the day, gotta ‘perform’ some major cleaning-up session in my room. *wink* Again, my housemates and I had this after-exam drinking night yesterday. Leong and I started off with a bottle of Asti, while Chuo Ming and Kim said they will join us soon after PS2 . Both of us got pretty bored, so Leong suggested we should play card games while waiting for the rest to move their arse. The rule of the game was to guess the colour of the next card (DOhh!!) I have lost count on how much we drank ( Leong must have tricked me into ‘sipping’ most of the shots while he puff away..MUAHAHAHa ) But, it was all good..WICKED!! 😀
As I’m writing this blog, I just received a message from one of my best friends in Malaysia saying that her ex-boyfriend ( who is apparently now in jail ) wanted her home address so that he could write to her. AWWwWwW* She broke into tears when the boy’s mum ring her for her address. I bet most of you guys back in Malaysia must have heard about the murder case of a doctor in Bangsar a month ago or so. ‘Sadly’ , he had to be one of the murderers. Apparently, the charges have been read to them and the judge decided on a death sentence!!!Does he deserve another chance, or was he given too many? Man..mistakes in life..sometimes there is just no turning back. *sob.
GoSHhHh..spiders SpiDeRsSs!!..Spiders have been crawling up my bed and down my carpet!! And also deli-long legs!!! My room is turning into a mini zoo. These pets of mine come from the gigantic overgrown tree which is right next to my skyline window. So, every time when I open it, I’ll be inviting more thingies into my room. Don’t let me see any crawling creatures, otherwise they will all be whacked and smashed (and probably eat them too ? )mUaHAHHahha..I’m turning into an animalist!!
HElLLLlOOWWSS!!..new guest blogger.!!.am still familiarising myself with this whole blog thing. Leong will come screwing me (bearing in mind his kick-ass muay thai skils!! ) if I flood the page or something.. :P.ok.will be back later.
