When Many Left, They Stayed.

25 Sep

Today is yet another day worth to be written down somewhere, hence here I am trying to keep my eyes open at this hour just for the sake of writing when I still feel the excitement from the day. πŸ™‚

I keep saying how much I miss university but even I myself haven’t expected that I really do miss that phase of my life so much so it made me so emotional the whole day.

I was super excited with just the thoughts about meeting friends from the same course since it’s I-Week at the Faculty.

So excited I actually half-ran to the hall from my car. LOL!

Then I saw the very familiar building I spent my last three years in. And the smell of their air-conditioner – mm hmm~ I’m back!!! πŸ˜€

It was just so thrilling to see how successful I-Week in FEA can finally be! After so many years of letdowns, thank God we haven’t gave up on this beloved school of ours!!!

Then I met my roomies!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I actually met them last night and when I saw them, I immediately felt like crying. I don’t know why either, I just wanted to hug them both and cry my heart out.

Don’t get me wrong, my life hasn’t sucked as much as it sounded. Just that I missed them so so SO much!

So to get an all-day outing with them today sure made me a super happy girl! And this silly woman came too, all the way from RTM Seremban!

#1.

And her so-called boyfriend who has been dead centuries ago!

#2.

…who is also cross-eyed! Ahahaha!

#2. Roomies!

For dinner we had Korean food, which was somewhat disappointing. Haha but really, it’s who you eat with that matters. πŸ™‚

#4.

And that’s the face you get from Malar when she is calling you ‘menyampah’. πŸ˜€

We basically went hunting for Elen’s so-called furnitures and did some shoe-shopping with Malar – simple stuffs but don’t know why I got super emotional about the whole thing when I left Elen’s house just now! 😦

I just suddenly remembered, these girls have been there not just for three years, but a really important chapter in my life.

They saw me in my worst and best days, heard me out countless times when I rant about my day, got woken up by me in the middle of the night simply because I was being stupid for getting scared over some random noise or shadow, accompanied me to shower in the next cubicle because I was scared again, and even helped held my hair and pat my back when I vomited over one of my migraine days.

They were there because they cared for me sincerely, with no expectations on what they’ll get back. Β And I know, they’ll always be there even though I’ve had already countless friends walking out on me simply because we are moving on with different things in life.

You girls are really the most amazing people I’ve met. I’ll always be grateful to have met each and everyone of you. πŸ™‚

Can’t wait for our complete group shot!Β β™₯

Cheers on Getting Old!

4 Sep

My boyfriend’s birthday is a day before mine so we had our mini celebration together last Friday!

I think I finally understand Audrey now when she said something about it being less fun when our birthdays are so near each other’s. It’ll somehow end up as just one of our birthdays, if you get what I mean.

So obviously for my case, I was the Queen of the day! Ahaha! Chai picked up me after work and treated me to dinner then movie after that! Even got me a present that I picked myself. πŸ˜€

What did he get I hear you ask? Oh well, best present of all obviously – that is to be able to spend quality time with me! FHL! πŸ˜›

#1. Chai's King of Pig from K5

#3.

Yes yes his eyes were half closed but it’s the only picture of us from that night that looks okay.

#3. Punishment for being late.

His punishment of course! Ehehe!

#4.

Another one just to make me happy! πŸ™‚

#5. Something I chose for myself πŸ™‚

Β 

#6. Dinner!

Dinner was at the restaurant (of my choice) and it was superb! If you don’t already know, it was at Johnny’s!

It’s his first time so I pretty much made sure he tried everything I loved from there. End up our table (for four) was full with dishes! πŸ˜€

#7.

At this point, we have already whacked one bowl of Tom Yam Bihun and one plate of BBQ Chicken Spinach Noodles. yums!

#8. Mixed Dessert!

We were super full until we couldn’t even finish our steamboat but what is a meal without desserts, right? πŸ˜€

Rushed to the cinema after that, even missed some of the beginnings but I’m really glad we chose to watch this!

#9. Rise of the Planet of the Apes!

Don’t really remember what Planet of the Apes’s about but I sort of remember how silly I used to think it was, to have walking and talking apes in a movie. Not to mention how scary some of them looked. (No offense to fans!)

But this prequel is gooooooodd!! I really enjoyed the movie but it’s kinda sad how Caesar became from this…

#10.

to this…

#11.

But oh well, like what Summer from 500 Days of Summer said, “What always happen happens – life”

So the movie pretty much was the finale of my birthday celebration. πŸ™‚ This year, stranger than ever my big day went by just like any other day. I know how this is how it’s supposed to be – it is after all, just another day.

I used to always emphasized how big birthdays were and how celebrations should be planned by people who truly care about you. If there were no celebrations, then sucks to be you but no one cares. LOL!

This year however, I realized celebrations, cakes, candles, presents, etc are all kinda over the top. What really matters is to have people you hold close to your heart with you.

And that should apply every day, not just on birthdays so see how birthday is just any other day of the year? πŸ™‚ Guess this is a sign of old age!

But thank you Bee for the wonderful outing! I really really reeeaaally enjoyed myself! πŸ™‚ Let’s save up for more dinners at nice restaurants!

Trip to the Elephant Sanctuary!

1 Sep

So as promised many many days ago, this is on the trip to the Elephant Sanctuary at Kuala Gandah!

Both Fei and I were extremely excited about it because… hey, we’re talking about real life elephants okay! What is there not to be excited right?

#1.

The gentle giants are really really adorable! Probably they are very well-trained too that’s why their cuteness doubled and tripled all the way!

#2.

Despite their ‘animal odour’, Fei and I couldn’t keep our distance from them the whole trip!

#3.

#5.

Adorable max! Especially when they go mandi!! πŸ˜€

#6.

You get to feed them too! Most of them prefer peanuts to fruits so if you’re going to visit them, stock up on peanuts!

#7.

But just so you know, being cute is one thing, feeding them and enduring that splat of saliva on your palm is another. >.< Thank goodness I volunteered to take pictures so I didn’t have to go through that! πŸ˜€

#8.

Even got to ride on them after that! Many complained about their rough skin and stuff but really, I adore them to bits!!! Look closely at their faces and you’ll see how gentle they look, how manja they really are! πŸ™‚

#9.

See! They even know how to pose for pictures!

So yup, that pretty much wraps up about the elephant trip. Gotta head to bed now since I’m working tomorrow! Yesss I’m finally working! πŸ˜€
