Do I love my life? Do I really love my studies? Living in KL? My life as a university student astraying to the hell day. Home crisis...miss misS miSS Miss Teoh... Life ain't good. Well, no matter how bad it is, there is still few things i like:

1. I'm a student again
2. I live life to the fullest ( Heavy assignmentS!)
3. I love my lecturers, they are great, I learned alot in last sem
4. I gained weight!

Yea, only a few.

And now... oH YEA!

I gotta feeling that tonight’s gonna be a good night
that tonight’s gonna be a good night
that tonight’s gonna be a good good night

Tonight’s the night night
Let’s live it up
I got my money
Let’s spend it up

Go out and smash it
like Oh My God
Jump off that sofa
Let’s get get OFF

I know that we’ll have a ball
if we get down
and go out
and just loose it all

I feel stressed out
I wanna let it go
Lets go way out spaced out
and loosing all control.............................

Forgive me, black eye peas song running over my mind every sec! Life turns great when I don't give a shit what is my responsible for tomorrow and I can sleep like nobody business. This sem break is wonderful after I been through all these:

Sleepless nights...Overnight in studio... Improper meal... Bathless day... STress.... And my hair turning white... I can see I'm working harder compare to the time when i was in diploma. Thanks to all my kiasu classmates. I was always impressed the work by them in every crit session. Yet, i don't feel im pushing myself to the limit. Hopefully the next sem, im gonna pay more attention in every single detail of my courses and also give all my time to studies.

Having said that, I didn't attend to any Sunday service. GUILTY! I do feel my faith dropping as my trust of foundation started to fade off. Although she keeps telling me to go, something always came up to stop me from going. Hmm... I guess I have to be strong. I'm not yielding. My life routine comes to a point that i need to seek God which I didn't. I depends on my own alot in many things. What's wrong with me? I used to be obsessed to my spiritual life! Enough said. I need to change when I go back to KL. From my live to my studies to my attitude to my passion to everything that needed to change.

Ouch..I get emo sometimes. I shall be happy for the remaining 15 days. Enjoy! me! enjoy!!

Stay tuned for more updates for limited time! *click*

Important Updates

Ever since I left Penang, everything changed drastically. I live by my own. Do things I never did before like washing my clothes, hanging them one by one with clippers, and iron them once a week. Alot of house chores to do but eventually I'm getting used to all of these. I gonna say this, I love my housemates. They are cool, easy going and cute in a way they call names like the fat calling the fat fatty. Too bad, I spent most of my time with studies than with these guys. All because of...

School life! I'm glad I still can be a student. Almost everyday, 10-15 mins morning walk from my apartment to campus. I personally enjoy the walk very much with my earphone on, it makes me feel energetic. I almost forget the long walk while humming the song and seeing different faces passing through... Food at campus sucks. End of food story. One thing I like about my campus among all the facilities is the classroom. Although lots of people complain about it, Ken Yeang design failure...bla bla bla etc... I still like the classroom. Toilet is intact with almost every classroom. We can use the studio with aircon on 24/7, and working space is sufficient for large scale project. Another thing I like about the campus is library. Student can borrow up to 5 books at a time. Unlike my precious blood sucking college, Equator ahem ahem of art...None of the book we can borrow and if we need it, only solution is to make copy with the photostate machine provided and we even need to pay for it!

As expected, the culture of architecture...Sleepless night throughout weeks and metaphorically explained as like empty a jar filled with water by pouring all into a glass.I wish I have 48 hours a day, or I should say no time limitation, so that I will have sufficient time to work on the idea. Well, maybe weekend when rushing for final model making, I see sunrise and sunset twice in day? Wasn't it happen in 24 hours? Illusion it is. "Work hard but work smart", become famous quote of the year of mine. This applied to the future too! Seriously! to get efficient, sometimes we really need to find the shortcut to speed up our work. Looking into my life as an architecture student, Ludwig van Beethoven stumbled my mind. In the biography movie of him, I remember how he baths with just a bucket of water. I used to enjoy my bath time. The time precious when you are not wearing anything and water showering upon naked body. The water flow freely from your head to toe with the guidance of body curves and...STOPPED! Today, bathing is just merely wetting my body like what Beethoven did always. Other than bath, is the bed. I used to tell everyone, if after I bath more than 3 hours, I dare not sleep on my bed. Reason is the bed, yes the fluffy bubbly bed, is the place where people spend most of the time in a day! So it has to be clean, super clean. But now, I spend most of my time either in studio or on my desk. Architecture student, you know I know...

To be continued...

The Begining of Changes

It is so hard to say goodbye.
But still I have to make it worked.
So here I am at Subang Jaya.
Last night is really a nightmare.
My room was so dirty, I can feel the dust sticking my feet layer by layer.
I was cleaning up the floor with just a piece of clothes.
I have no table, no chair, no wardrobe, no curtains, no...I still have a bed!
I'm thinking now if my mom wasn't offer to buy me a portable bed, I would've to sleep on the floor throughout the week!
Thanks mummy! Love you so so much!

Dedication To All Heart Broken

What is substituted is the sentiment, not the fact of giving up.
Being given up by someone is not a loser.
Being the party who pay more effort and nourish the relationship,
we always hope for same treatment from opposite.
Therefore, the feeling of injured, envy, happy, laughs heartily... they haunt.

But all of these, you know you have gave more than she did.
Certainly the injury you face could be many time more.
However, she could not feel it already.
Leaves you to withstand the misery completely by yourself.
No matter how, because of all these sorrow,
only then you'll have the strength, in the pain to stand up once again.

You may choose to stop at point with all the sorrow,
resentment and feeling of losing love which you once diligently fought for.
Or you choose to gain ground and face bravely.
Let the others discover the indifferent in you.
Moreover you become dazzling and stronger than before.

I may not be the best to comfort, but Jesus does.
Because He loves us so much, He died on the cross for us.
Because of our sin, He endured satires, humiliation, bleedings.
Yet we don't understand. Just like those who doesn't understand you.
Jesus knows. God is love and He knows your pain.

My 09 CNY

In my point of view, every family needs a leader, head of the family tree. My grandpa was the head of the family. After he passed away, things not going well and my grandma's turn to be the head of the family. Still, things didn't turn well because my grandma was a disabled and she couldn't make any decision and just 2 weeks before CNY, she passed away. So the family's mace had to pass to someone. My dad being the eldest, he supossed to take up the responsibility but due to his overwhelmed problem from the company and his health, he is basically a disabled. Turned out we are a democratic family. Everyone voice out creating chaos.

This year CNY is a sad one. It is so different from my past 21 years except my mom's side, we celebrate as usual with my grandpa. Other than that, I was being together with Ciern and bunch of church member throughout the week. On the reunion day, I had reunion lunch with Ciern's family. The food was too much but they were deeliiiciious...yuMMY! We visited some of our church eldery and also hang out with my ex collegemate and lecturer. From my precious post, Vivian was one of them. She's cute isnt't it? We played poker alot. But Bluff card game was my all time favourite(because I only how to play bluff...hehe). When we were at Yong kang's house, we met a new friend, Rex, the handsome Siberian Husky. But he is too shy to play with us.

It seemed boring, but I got to gain some precious knowledge. One of my church member taught me how to make Fruit Enzyme. It is very healthy to our body although some tasted so bad. I love the fermented grape. The leftover juice taste like wine! Besides fruit enzyme, I actually solved the very mystery unsolved puzzle game I used to played in childhood time, The Rubik's Cube!!! Thanks to Danny, he has been to patient enough to teach me. Ciern and I had cny promotion Sushi King also. Check out here with loads of tempting food and Yee Sang.
