Of Productive Saturdays!

6 Sep

Some pictures from the PEKUMA and FEA Night committee photo shoot that I missed out on earlier.

#1. Meddy, Pei Ling, Jo Ann, Lik Sheng and I

#2.

And just last Saturday, PEKUMA got invites to the OSK Investment Tips Seminar!

#3. Seats reserved for PEKUMA

#4. Some of us who went

The seminar was really insightful to me, personally.

The speakers kept saying those wereย just the fundamentals but guess what, we’re not even exposed to the basics in our syllabus so it was really good!!!

#5. One of the speakers, Chris

#6. Speakers from OSK

So after the seminar, there were light refreshments and then we went around mingling with some of the OSKIC officers we got to know from earlier events andย also representatives of other IPTA/IPTS.

#7. Liew, Paul, Madelyn and Jo Ann

#8. Us with Jacky, Danny, Louis and Steve

ย At about 1pm-ish we moved on to Petaling Street to help prepare some stuffs for FEA Night.

We all became members of the souvenir department that day. ๐Ÿ˜€

#9.

Goof-ed around in Lik Sheng’s comfy house. ๐Ÿ˜€

#10. The attempt to really test KKL's existence. >.<

#11.

Then straight from Lik Sheng’s house off I went to Empire for dinner with Aunt Lowell!

It’s always fun to meet her and the family because of these two cuties!!!

#12. Qii Qii

#13. Hung Hung

We were treated to yummy-licious mooncakes by Xin Yi after dinner!

#14. Haagen-Dazs!

Another day productively spent! โ™ฅ

#15. This kid is โ™ฅ!!!

Of Unproductive Shopping & Shabu One

5 Sep

Chong Jo Ann, Loo Pei Ling and I decided to shop for real one fine day.

Shop for real, meaning we spend the entire day on nothing else but to shop for our dress. ๐Ÿ™‚

We were all looking for ankle-length ones but at the very beginning we already went out of our objective.

#1.

First stop that we really tried on the clothes were at Kitschen.

Lingered around Times Square a while more then we went off to Sungei Wang where there are apparently more dresses at very cheap prices! *big bright eyes

#2.

The girls brought me to Metrojaya and completely spoilt me.

After trying the above dress from Somerset Bay (not sure of the spelling) which costs way more than my budget, I just can’t imagine buying the others in those smaller boutiques in Sungei Wang.

Walked aimlessly around again as we were all rather lost in SW, we finally decided to move on to Lot 10.

I so prefer Lot 10, especially Debenhams! โ™ฅ OMG the dresses there are all so pretty!!

But also very expensive. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ So again, we shifted malls.

This time, to somewhere with even slighter chance; Pavilion.

#3. Us three!

Despite being completely unproductive, I was really enjoying myself with them two.

They’re seriously such good companies, you’ll get addicted to them. >.<

Wandered around some more and then Madelyn and Christine finally reached and joined us as well!! ๐Ÿ˜€

#4.

I am really suspecting it’s a jinx now to really shop with them because everytime we said we’re going shopping, we end up torturing our feet with no returns.

#5. The exhausted Pei Ling

#6. Jo Ann in her LaLa Land, as usual...

#7. With Christine

But we sure had good laughs in between, so it’s not all that bad. ๐Ÿ˜‰

#8. Shabu One

The guys then reached at about 8pm and we went to Shabu One for their steamboat!!!

They had promotions for students and seriously, I’m going to make sure I make full use of my last year as a student by using up all these privileges! *kiasu mode on*

#9.

Super nice place to steamboat with the gang!!! โ™ฅ

#10.

Awesome possum dinner ended with some of us gagging, feel like throwing up and what not. Lol! Seriously kiasu.

I’m soย getting ‘addicted’ to them. T.T

Of Old Photos from FB!

2 Sep

People around would know I’m constantly on Facebook.

One fine afternoon, when FB was so totally dead and bored, I clicked onto my photos and viewed from the last one then clicked all the way backwards.

#1. Us in FRIM

It was when I saw these pictures that I feel it’s a must to put it up on my blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

#2. Loi's birthday surprise

Blindfolded Loi then brought her tour around a while before we splashed all sorts of nonsense onto her.

Well, it was mostly just flour and considered the least serious one compared to the rest of us.

It was sort of like a tradition among us at that time that we splash nonsense onto that person on his or her birthday.

#3. Heng & I - with plans to elope

Haha! That was actually all the comments on FB but the two of us were actually told to look after the bags while Loi and Audrey went to check in or something.

This was during the Langkawi trip with the BFFs! ๐Ÿ˜€

#4. With Aud and Loi

#5. With Heng & Loi

#6. Us in deep thoughts...

#7.

Audrey is going to kill me for this, but oh wells, it’s a nice picture! โ™ฅ

Then it was those random outings back when Audrey is around…

#8.

#9.

#10. Along with Karine

#11.

Then our first few clubbing outings…

#12.

#12. At Bar Celona with Danny and Fook Siang as well..

where we ended the night bailing Fook Siang out from the police station. ๐Ÿ˜€

#14.

And those times when the short BFF is at US…

#15. Heng's bday!

#16. At Sunway Hotel's toilet.

#17.

On another occasion at MOS with my favourite kaki-clubbing. ๐Ÿ˜€

Oh, I miss you guys so so much!!!

Thank goodness semester break is here! ๐Ÿ˜€

MERDEKA!

1 Sep

Here again, though I’m really supposed to finish up my Microeconomics tutorials and prepare for the hopefully not happening PPE test.

But since it’s Merdeka (although it’s one hour late now, I’m still awake so I take it 31st August, still) I just thought of jotting down some of my thoughts here.

A video came up just minutes ago in FB and I actually clicked to view then even shared it because of the title.

“50 UPM Malay Students Bully Chinese Students”

First of all, the title is already freaking wrong. Why can’t they just put, Students Bullied by Other Students or something less sensitive.

Why must die die also stress the word, MALAY, CHINESE, etc.

Then I watched the video.

It was recorded by one of the CHINESE, a scene of about two minutes plus whereby a group of MALAY were shouting and pushing the other few CHINESE.

(Take that, since people like to stress the racial thing so much I caps all the way)

Comments around were “What 1Malaysia, Malay still bully Chinese” or something like that.

Where as mine was something about why did they do that, as in shout and push when they are supposedly undergraduates of one of the top universities in Malaysia.

Comments then came flooding in and stuff.

But anyways, my point is, see how just a two minutes video stirs up sensitive issues?

We don’t even know what is going on or what really happened but just like that people say we, the CHINESE are bullied.

Seriously.

Are we locked up in cages, starved and whipped by those MALAYS?

Why do people even say we are BULLIED?

I have not encountered anything close to bully in my entire life, so please correct me if I’m wrong.

But heck, we (well, at least some) of us are given spots in the university and to say quota, have you actually counted the number of MALAYS or CHINESE or INDIANS or OTHERS in the faculties?

For the record, I see courses like Accountancy and Economics are mostly CHINESE students.

I’m not saying that MALAYS are less smart in these fields, it’s just that it shows the government is really not as racist as what people always say.

If you really deserve that spot in the university, you will be given.

Okay, moving on (because I do know that many didn’t get what they want) especially when you’re already an undergraduate in quite a prestigious university in the country (ie. University of Malaya) and you still say you are bullied, I think you’ve really got to wake up.

I mean, for the least you are given a spot in a good course, in a good university with your safety and all taken care of. What more can you ask for from your government?

And before you ask for anything else, have you thought of what have you GAVE to the country?

Yeah, your parents been giving their taxes and stuff, so do mine. And I think I made really good use of it by coming into a local university.

At least my education is subsidized, I am staying in the hostel with all basic necessities provided and I sit in air-conditioned classes everyday.

What I’m trying to say is, it’s just disappointing at times to hear undergraduates of local universities (unless you are really mistreated like my friend in Labuan) complain about how unfair they are treated by the government when I think we are the ones gaining most of it.

I’m not saying you should be so grateful, you vow to only be a government servant for the rest of your life, for the least stop complaining.

If you could just step back, hold your complaints and look. Just LOOK! You’ll see how blessed you are to be here, a country where you’re free to move about without all the curfews and wars going on.

Where your biggest concern is maybe the financial crisis in your own bank account, or you can’t fit into your sizes anymore or the coming tests which you are totally unprepared for. (I am not talking about myself here! *cough cough*)

And not worrying about your parents’ safety because they went out to get more rice for the family, or losing your already damaged house to the next bom or something.

Go on and migrate to somewhere else. Till then you’ll realize how blessed you are to be born in Malaysia and to be just called a Malaysian yourself.

Happy Merdeka! ๐Ÿ™‚
