i bought this really cute book!!! for 40 baht at a second hand book stall outside pantip!!!
one of the carols:
The first meow,
The angels did say,
Was to certain white Persians
On rugs where they lay,
On rugs where they
Lay trying to sleep,
Having dreams about cat life
That were so deep.
Meow, meow, meow, meow.
They'll get to do what they want, somehow.
Meow, meow, meow, meow.
They'll get to do what they want, somehow.
(The first Noel)
what did i do
on thursday, the very first day of the holidays, i went to bangkok with vivian, julie, lorena and PAPS!!! and i spent a fortune there, i'm so money-tight now that i don't think i would want to buy anything until school opens again
on friday, i had muscle sores and aches all over my body because we went to three malls the previous day, carrying my stupid heavy laptop, still i love it....ehheheheheheheh
saturday, i attempted the organ, made a few slips....and spent the afternoon watchin Stealth, and half of Team America....sungguh stups this movie
and today, i think i'm gonna try out the new books i just purchased and do some work tonight with the help of my friedns...
and please do check out my flickr, i think i'm uploading pictures.... ehheheheheheheh
i thought the exam this morning was gonna be hard, and i was pouring blood and sweat to study for the class, it's english literature to 1800. well now that it's done and over, i'm happy and looking forward to my next exam this afternoon, creative writing, hopefully my creative juice is still stored some where up there
well, it's the SECOND TIME it happened, it's like an insatiable hunger that comes periodically, like PMS. wish it would stop!!!!
not that the world reads my blog but anyway
i would send my thanksgiving to the Lord cause my very good friend, VIVIan got baptized this morning...
it was a nice touching ceremony...
will write more later!!! more exams to come, a wedding to tackle and a holiday to enjoy!!! yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This person just walked up to me and asked for a picture... HAHAHAHAHAHA, joking joking...
Vivian and I
my constant worries and sleepless nights... I think I deserved to worry about last night's concert. I got sick last saturday night and I was singing a solo right in the beginning of the concert. Everything went well though, even though I knew I could've done better if I were well, I think I gave my best. (Still, I would like to "do justice" as my boss puts it, to that wonderful piece of music).
This morning, I'll be going down to Bangkok, my mom warned me against it, but I promised myself that I'll take really good care of myself, drinking lots of water and making sure that I would not get sick again. Why do I want to go if I'm not feeling that well!!! I love the people in my group!!! They're just great!!! :D
Anyways, I have made a pledge to myself that I would really start considering the food that I consume, become a little bit more health conscious as I really am not in the mood of getting sick for my upcoming recitals and concerts!!!
Exams coming up!!!
Those two pictures on the above are my most recent activities, first, i had the very first recital for this new school year, i sang!! YES I SANG... an italian song, the song was good i guess, but i should've practised more with my accompanist because she took it twice the speed...ahhahahahaha... okay i sang an italian song entitle "danza, danza fanciulla" by durante and i played on the piano chopin's etude #10 opus #4...i think ahhahahaha, i think i'm gonna do it again, a better version of it... not that i played terribly during the recital, but i was nervous, and probably a fresh new attempt would justify the amount of time i spent practising....
okay the next picture is my very great friends and I at the english trip, which was a blast and not a blast at the same time... we spent about a day, all in all, on the journey both going and coming back, lemuel got sick, and in the end, lem, pappu (he wasn't at the trip) and I ended up in the hospital for three nights. It was great because i could escape the college, didn't have to play piano for any worship services, and i wore the same shirt for practically the whole trip, if you were there you would know!! ahhahahahahahahahaha....
it's been quite some times since i logged into my blog and posted up anything at all... well here we go, i'm putting up a post!!!
i just had garlic, been painfully swallowing garlics for the past few days, it's both painful and temporarily relieving...
i just received my almost final work i had for creative writing, and all the improvements that i've made seems satisfying at this moment, but not knowing what would happen in the future, my works may extend, in length and meaning...hopefully
so i won't be always the blonde that vivian thinks i am!!! ahahhaahahahahahahahaha
i can't believe the year is already wrapping up, i'm thinking: what next? what would i do next semester? what would happen to me when all my friends graduate? will i be alone?! with whom will i hang out during my free time? with whom will i go to the markets with? whose bike will i borrow? who'll replace my late night calls (vivian is handling that duty right now - underpaid) I don't know!!!
and came back to school, feeling like i didn't actually miss any classes. well, wait till all the homework piles up and then i can say how i feel! ahhahahahahaha
okay my mom's online and she needs my fullest attention.....
will update later
i'm back, i'm tired, i'm gonna have hot poop tomorrow.... just got back from the church practising, and ended up giggling in one of my recordings for aims...AIMS the recording is done already, so now your lou kong can practice nyanyi hari hari....
I have so much to do, everyone seems to be busy with one thing or another..... anyway i'm surviving, i will survive this week, next, and the weeks more to come...
I just had a hot dish of kai tot fried with chilli sauce, yum yum...buy you know how it goes with Thai food, especially those that are spicy, kau punya berak pun pedas...sorry for the crude language, but sometimes we have to be honest with what we are bound to experience...
i'm supposed to write two poems, about death and love, respectively, hmmm i don't really feel in love right now, need some 'love making,' don't get me wrong people!! i'm over with my penjual business... i've recently raised my standards...ahhahaha, and in regards to the death poem... i pretty much feel dead right now, dead with exhaustion and all those petty pretty little things that make our lives liv-able...
I am supposed to be very very extremely very thrifty <- did i spell this correctly - this next few weeks until my duit comes in...but still i'm intending to go down to bangkok, have fun, grab some good food, meet some good-ol friends!!!
well so much for today, i'm gonna do my entry on singapore for tomorrow's class!!! tata everyone...
daron is signing off for now...
from bottom to top: seconds before the hurricane, felly, ivonne, tina, aaron, lem, julie, daron, and pappu!!!; white christmas in dreamworld...with lem and aaron giving frosty the snowman a lick of his life!!! ahhahahahahah; kanak-kanak riang: lem, aaron, and I!!
so much for saying that i'm actually happy that the break is over,
well thinking about it, i am happy that the break is over.... i have to rewrite a report, but never mind.... not such a big deal..
first day of school is fun!!! u get to meet people in uniform... and i luv people in uniform muahahahahahahahahahahahaahaha, okay okay....
here is a scandalous picture... (note: i was just being 'breathless')
oh my goodness, i think i said that like a thousand times yesterday!!!
it was great, it was SOOOO great, i thought i wouldn't be scared of the rides, but my insides were screaming on almost all the rides!!!! crazy crazy crazy..so now i'm gonna present a summary of the escapade we had yesterday
first we went to the haunted "mantion" ahhahaha, dunnow why they spell wrong, it was so dark, and i purposely didn't bring my spectacles, worried that i might get blown off if i took the roller coaster, there were 'ghosts' everywhere i guess, i couldn't see much, only could see the glow of my white shoes... well i did have fun screaming for nothing... i guess
the viking: oh my gosh, this is one of the scariest, i sat on the second last row, the first few swings were fine but when we came to the 'climax' i could feel my insides and my body just went 'stiff' as lemuel put it, i couldn't bear looking down and i was just pinning myself against the seat, and there was this one gurl who fainted behind me...
Bumper car: this one was great, with lemuel swearing all over the place, could just imagine if it were real cars and we went crashing all over the place.... ahhahahahahahahahaha
Hanging coaster: shit this was another scary one... even though i was buckled, i was screaming all over the place until Lorena, who was sitting next to me and didn't feel a thing. she even made sure i was all right, even julie could hear me screaming "oh my goodness" like a million times, when it first took off, and i saw how high we were, i 'frizzled out'..ahhahahahahahahahahahahaha
Space mountain: i sat next to a stranger, couldn't menjerit, and couldn't menggetek because the stranger was still a kid!! ahhahahaha, this ride was awesome, scary...it was dark, only neon lights and blinkers and all those, trying to simulate the galaxy, and it was damn fast, and probably that was why i freaked out because it was so fast and dark, didn't anticipate the turns and rise and falls.... gila babi
Super splash... ahhahahaha, lem lost his spectacles in this ride but they found it again in the canal, or whatever u call it, the splash was magnificent... pappu told me not to close my eyes, and i didn't and it was 'simply amaaaazzzzing' ahhahahaha, then after the ride we went to the overpassing-the-canal bridge and stood there for the wave to come and it did and i was thrown 'aback' ahhahahahahahahahahahahahaha, luckily got julie's raincoat!!! :D
snowtown: i expected more cottages and all those cute little things u would find in santa's town, but there was just one big cookie cottage, and reindeers, and polar bears, and santa and christmas trees.. and it was damn freezing cold i could feel my toes, my fingers, and my mouth and nose and my mucous from my nose was just flowing out freely... they had sleighs though, plastic ones, and i had like 3 rides which were great!!!
HURRICANE!!! this was a great end to a great day!!! :D :D :D :D :D, at first i wasn't sure whether or not i could take the rides anymore because the other three rides were killing me, but i still went!!! and i didn't feel as scared as the other three, probably because in this ride, they lock u to the sit, pinning you tightly because it involved 360 degrees of turning, with the seats turning 360 also.... ahhahahahahaha, i was screaming even before it started, and when it actually did, i was having so much fun!!! ahhahahahhahahahaha, this is the greatest and i would go there again
okay so much for my essay, i think i'm gonna upload some pictures, but i might change my mind by the time i finish this paragraph, so i u guys, my faithful readers, don't see any picts, go to my flickr link, and i surely would have some picts there!!! :D :D :D
iyah, dgn riani lagi, kamu ini suka mengacau orang bergambar lah!!! ahhahahahahahahahahahahahaha.....
indons rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (me, riani, and sonya - for those who don't know who these great people are) :D
I did this ninja stint for him for cultural night, it was interesting, i got hit in the mouth, and some big hongkongese (oliver) was sprawled over me and they were beating him up...still had fun!!!
Okay now it's vuja's turn, she's in cambodia now, i miss the late night calls, where we would just beat around the bush and the receiver going no where, hoping that everything will blow over cuz like people are different okay!!!! i'm missing you already!!! one thing i can say is she's a GREAT POINTER!!! i bet she's pointing all over cambodia now!!!!
Donuts...haven't had them for ages, and i only had money to buy 2 pieces, how depressing!!! but still, i hung on to it from lotus to my room, just to take a picture of it before i digested it!! yum yum!!!!
*had a hongkongese guy's pict, but i accidently deleted it... there's always a next time right!!! :D
a few things that happened between wednesday to thursday
rochael, claire and i were walking back from the minibus, and we saw from afar two ladies walking towards us, so we buat macam besa lah because we don't know who they are! as they approached us, one of the ladies hid behind another one, so we thought they were just fooling with each other lah, suddenly the one who was hiding behind jumped out and gave a big 'booh!' scaring us konon, but rochael, claire and i didn't know who this lady was....and it was such an awkward moment...
and talking about awkward moments, on thursday i was working over time in the office then i had to rush for class meeting at the IT building, so i went to the meeting only at 10.30 not knowing that the meeting was already over, i saw only 5 people in the room, and i thought that those were the only 5 who showed up...so i barged in and everybody looked at me....and i started giving them all these excuses why i was late, and i asked them, "everyone has left right?" and they nodded at me....turn out they were the 5 committee members who were discussing what the year activities would be...
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, please laugh okay, or i'll feel awkward telling you guys all these!!! :D
In literary terms, a conceit is an extended metaphor with a complex logic that governs an entire poem or poetic passage. By juxtaposing images and ideas in surprising ways, a conceit invites the reader into a more sophisticated understanding of an object of comparison.
How savoury it could be, this chocolate bar of yours,
It gives you an inner glow
Which radiates warmth to those around you
Craving after the chocolate
Consume the carbs and the calories
Forget about the nutrition facts...
if anySo buy chocolate, quickly act!!!
i don't feel like going up anytime soon, i need a break and the audience need it too. So, i'm gonna vow to myself, to say 'no' to anyone who asks me to play or sing, and i'll do this for at least a week! :D. and i'll make sure it happens.
aku rindu rumahlah...
:D midterm is coming and i haven't practised a single bit for my piano 'exam'
life is JOYFULL!!!
getting the leaders ready for Festival of Faith is sort of like a love hate relationship, i don't like the practise schedules but i enjoy listening to them sing/croak/stammer out the songs!!! it's so alive!! :D
i'm gonna have my piano lesson in about an hour, and i haven't practised much this week. sometimes though, when u haven't touched the piano for a while, u actually will get better at it... i'm hoping for that to happen!
it's wednesday! :D i'm glad the week is almost over!!
Well, it's about time i changed that!
Thanks to my friend!! :D
Tonight, during the FOF meeting, i was sitting next to the sweetest girl you could ever imagine, the speaker was going on and on about how he loved his wife, and i was thinking to myself, all the FOF speakers that came to the campus talk about their wives. hmmm, it's getting a little too draggy, and this gurl sitting next to me was thinking about the same thing, minus the 'draggy' part, and she said: these pastors are so sweet, talking about how beautiful their wives are!"
i've been always a pessimist..
that's the dark side of me
i'm happy i realized that!! :D
pappu says: "BODO!"
daron says: "I love you too!"
julie says: "I know, it's like a rags to riches story!"
fiona says: "I know, I know, it's so quaint and provincial!"
kim's comment woke me up!!
recap of what happened to me in september...
i had a huge wart which is now reduced to a little black scar on my nose....
there is an ongoing peaceful coup here in thailand...
nothing else is new here, i'm still going crazy!!!! that's old news
oh yeah, haven't heard from my brother......WHERE ARE U!!!!

"Air" in malay means water, but of course it's pronounced differently. Water. I need water right now. i have an almost empty bottle of water. but i won't drink from it till i'm done writing for 20 minutes. so my almost emptied bottle of water would be a sort of bribe fore me to complete this write up. i haven't written much in the last five weeks. only did minor writings like fillin up legal documents and jotting down friends' numbers. my head is pounding. pressure is rising. water, when pressurized would becom a lethal weapon. it could blow a plastic bottle to pieces. i saw this on mythbusters. the weight of water would relase pressure on solid matter thrown into the abyss of mystery...ahhahaha, the sea lah!!! :D i feel like i'm constantly swimming in this never ending waterin hold. i see others here. these others are the many things that i need to accomplish. unfortunately, i can't swim. so the current in the watering hole (i'm aware that watering holes don't have currents) is just pulling me into greater problems. trouble flow in like water gushing out from a leaked bottle. sometimes it explodes on me like the niagara falls. i've never been to the niagara falls before. luckily, there is a constant reminder of how nice it is to be relaxing under cool refreshing water.... my shower!!! water explosions are fun. i remember throwing plastic bags of toilet water with toothpaste from my fourth floor flat.....i remember my dad throwing me in the sea, hoping miraculously that i would learn to swim. i think i need water bombs thrown at me this very instant........i need to awake from this dry depressing state......wouldn't it be nice if i had a water bed? i like water, i need water yet still i get afraid of it. sometimes. i'm kinda watery now, all i need is reaching that freezing point where my molecules would stop vibrating and my mind and sould would be...hopefully....as hard as rock ice!!!
i'll drink my water now...
part of me wants to go back, but another part of me wants to stay back, and there is another part of me that wants to just go somewhere else...probably an exotic place...ahhahahahahahahaha
don't know what i'm doing right now, i'm in my mom's office again, using the internet connection.... life is boring, and when we think that getting connected would help, many times, results would be the opposite...
okay don't know what i'm crapping about right now... i'm vamoosing...thanks to those who thought about dropping by to know what i'm drooling and brooding about right now...well right now i'm drooling over my bed....ahhahahahahahahahahaha and brooding about my body weight
Kan ubah takdirnya
Tiada yang kan mengembalikan
Teman yang ku semat mekar di jiwaku
Tiada kuasa yang
Kan ubah hasratNya memisahkan
Tiada upaya dari ku hidupkan
Manis senyuman taman mesra, ku rindu
Kan ku kenangimu
Doaku kan setia denganmu
Abadi nan terindah
Kan ku takhtakan mu
Di mahligai taman hatiku
Kan ku takhtakan mu
Kini kau tiada
Hilang, Pulang ke pangkuanNya
Ku redah pasrah dengan takdirNya
Teman hayatku yang hanya seketika
Takkan ku lupakan janjiku
Untukmu kuatkan azamku
Keikhlasan buat kau tersayang oh
Walau dikau telah tiada
Kau hidup hangat di jiwa
Selamanya selalu bersamaku

with soaring temparature, it causes molecules to vibrate, and there would be kinetic movement which will cause the molecules to finally break away from its covalent bonds...
i had a long moment of thought today... :) thinking that at some point, we have to let go (anything), i guess being in the right time and the right place and being sane!!! we finally come to realize that some things in life are just worthless...i am letting go a portion of me right now, and i hope i would be strong enough to overcome this whole *shitty ordeal...
