Lee Minho. Exams. Big Bang.

Wahlaos. :(


OK. Exactly 24 hours to my first paper of my final semester. And I am filled with mixed emotions inside. I remember clearly how it was like doing my first paper in old Monash building in Sunway and then the new building and later... the

But I am.

Two more topics to go and I'm ready to crap (and try to sound convincing) my way through.

I'm two papers away from graduation. Wow.

나도 사랑해.

Thursday, October 22, 2009


So this is it. One foot set into adulthood. Ready to conquer what's about to come. As a kid, I always thought whatever that constituted to an adult just came naturally. How they look, how they wear, how the speak, how the wield their authority... But despite that, when I look into the mirror and still feel like a kid. It hard to believe, I've grown one year older, into a new phase in life. =)

But I know for sure, when I wake up tomorrow, When I wake up everyday in years to come, I have what I wished for. =)

Thank you everybody this very special day.

Although I didn't celebrate my 21st birthday the traditional way by getting smashed or wasted... (I'll postpone that till all my study commitments are over ;D), I had a really pleasant surprise that will keep me smiling for the rest of the year.

By now, I've sent out my thank yous personally already to people in Melbourne, Gippsland (YAY GIPPY), and back home! I'm feeling the love from many parts of the world.

Sometimes it's hard to see things you already have when you focus too much on expectations. It's also a lot harder to forget things that you never expect. <3

Forget, 172. You guys make me feel like a million bucks.

James Blunt has competition.

I never knew how he looked but after watching Enchanted, I looped his 'So Close' song for a while. Here's Jon McLaughlin's rendition of Beyonce's Smash Into You. I am loving this piano man. :)

I cannot wait for the movie. And. Never in my life did I imagine Lee Byung Hun to be in the same photoshoot (let alone Movie) with Josh Hartnett. My eyes bled.


What are the odds of meeting two people you know in the Melbourne CBD at the same time? Apparently it's very high.

Monday, October 19, 2009

No. You. Are. Kidding me.

Lee Min Ho is coming to Malaysia.



Yesssss... Freedom. =) I feel accomplished. If my journalism lecturer were to ask me 'What happened to my English' again... I will be speechless.

Sunday, October 18, 2009

I don't wanna wait.

I don't want to wait
For our lives to be over
I want to know right now
What will it be
I don't want to wait
For our lives to be over
Will it be yes or will it be
Sorry- Paula Cole


Come monday, I will gain back my freedom... temporarily.

When one's cockroach woes lasts too long, it affects me- strangely in a good way.

Thursday, October 15, 2009

I want to do this. Over and over and over again.

A couple of kids rolling down the hill over the lake. =)


It might be a little late to blog about my return to Gippsland during the semester break. But I've got to, pictures just got posted out yesterday. =) I attended Jem's graduation. Oddly, there were alot of Kids there. Lol. Some crying halfway through the ceremony. Then others yelling on purpose just to see a panic stricken look on their parent's face. It's quite funny to see.

I used to get kicks for making my parents panic (I still do it now and then sometimes - "You're gonna be a grandma!", "I ran out of money can send me some??"), so i know where they come from. For them, it lasts forever because the best part is, they don't get spanked. But for me, I deal with a set of stereotypical Asian parents who:

1. Will not hesitate to spank/scold/yell at me if I did something grave.
2. Who expects me to find a nice chinese boy, and not a blond watery eyed heartthrob.
3. Always asks me to budget. Which I do try, but still blow it anyway. :(

But I guess parents all have one thing in common. They have this second layer which only we as kids can see. =)


The world's coolest uncle in history.

The world's biggest nature+people lover Photographer. HEHEHEE.

The most bipolar girl in the world.

Ok. Now not so bipolar.
Bipolar again! woohoo! (nahh it's just picture arrangements)

Indebted to their goodwill. Jem and his parents who let me hitch a ride back to the city (and around Gippsland, back from verve, to dinner omgzomg) on their way back to the airport.

CHEESEEE (ok this shouldn't be here but hell) at Wild dogs winery, Warragul. Triple cream cheese.


In my head I've always had this perception of people that if I gone back, things will be better, I'll get along better and really enjoy myself during my rather 'unlucky' second semester. I know now, it's not necessarily the case.

After returning from the country side, I know that for every Vline train that passes Armadale and Caulfield, that urge for me to hop on hasn't gone away. It is not the place that I miss but the word 'Gippsland' is a referent to the company I gained and loved over there which resounds every time I am reminded of grassy plains along the mountains and low grounds.

Towering buildings arching over every corner can be daunting. I remember standing in the junction of Swantston and La Trobe looking up at Melbourne Central and the state library during my little CBD hide-and-seek thinking to myself "Where in the world are they? Who do I look for help? I have friends staying in QV and Verve. Why don't I buzz their unit? They can help me call them. But what are their unit numbers? Been there ten thousand times, how could I not remember."

The irony here is that, can one feel lonelier in such a crowded space and feel so entertained in a land where there are more cows than people? =)

Time I've spent in the City hasn't been all downs either. I've never been to the movies alone. I don't study alone. Then we call for pizza and binge in the midst of the stress. Have ice cream in the cold. Picked up Guitar Hero. Went for prom ON A BOAT! Times when I'm ever alone in the city is often by choice or either because I got lost or somebody overslept. LOL.

And now that my stay is nearing an end, it's high-time I try to push my thoughts away from my 172 dollar fine, things that changed, looming clouds of separation from people I just got to know, and my overzealous, uber-talkative JRN classmates. Those are merely, silver-linings to my cloud. There's more to it than what I believe. I came here planning to experience the two sides of Australia. So now I have. =)

To the people that I've met in Gippsland and Melbourne and also people who have stuck through my ordeal, I really can't say this enough. Thank you. You have my love for eternity.

Unpleasant surprise.

I have mixed feelings now about getting things through snail mail.

Yep. I need a budget.

It's not the first time.

It is not the first time I've fallen in love with a movie star I lose, replace, and then find that thing that I lost. People who know me well can tell, it doesn't matter where ever I am, I am ALWAYS , I can't emphasize enough, looking for things, including my friends, hideandseekinmelbournewhee.

So there I was, doing everything in the world to get away from my work. I cleared some files to make space for my pc, I washed my comforter just for the heck of it, I even took time to pick up all the soft toys that fell on the floor while I was sleeping last night. And then. I just had to have it.

I craved for Ramen. The box where I keep my noodle stash, was sitting still across the room staring at me with delight. And I fall into temptation. I peek in and there it was.

A familiar shining object peeked out from the white plastic I held up.

Something that looked like this






(Hell breaks loose)


Tomorrow will be exactly a week since I duplicated my keys.

Now, if you click this link to a post I've written a year ago, you'll know I have 3 student IDs.

Australia hasn't changed me much in this aspect of my life. :/


I CAN DO THIS. XP Finish my journal and then do my longass JRN essay.

Hello again.

I still miss by 2 marks. But ok.

Kumar bites back.

DAMN YOU PR! Pull down my average T.T I knew this day will come. Karma for not paying attention in his class. BOOOOOO. What did I do a day before my PR exam? I can't seem to remember but pretty sure it's along the lines of fooling around T_________T



Had a large sundae at Mackers yesterday. NOOOOOOOOOO~


My second online purchase came at noon~! YAY! Lucky I skipped my screening. HEHEHEHE saves me a trip to the post office.

The parcel guy buzzed while I was cooking noodles. I zipped down to retrieve it. To my disappointment, there's a problem with their sizing. :(

OK. That's going to be the last of it. Tahan. No more shopping, offline or online, until the exams are over. None. Zero. Zilch.

And so I thought his voice was familiar.

And this is an epic Beyonce rendition that I saw in Cue City.

Park Hyo Shin and Tei. Later a cheesy rendition by GOD's teddybear Kim Taewoo.

Park Hyo Shin - After Love.

Pretty damn sure he sang a familiar drama theme song a long time ago.

Lost in Melbourne.

Wednesdays are probably one of my favourite days because class ends really early and I get to spend an afternoon hanging out and it's bowling day =D. So we did what we did, lunch, plans for bowling, a bit of window shopping.

We were at QV when it happened. And then, I left Alex and Karina to pop by the bathroom. And when I came back. They disappeared. It slipped their mind that I didn't have my handphone with me.

I felt a tiny wave of panic sweep over me. It's the same feeling of a 5-year-old losing your parents in a mall except not so intense. Hehe.

I checked the Bowling Alley, Mooks, possibly circled QV in and out 3 times. And then I decided to wait for them at Glue. Which I then gave up after some time. In this kind of situation, my feel of time can differ.

How I met them again was quite funny. I was on my way to Verve, a couple of friends stay there. Even if I wasn't sure of their Unit Numbers, I was gonna give it a shot. Without much success. It's Lunch time so its pretty obvious. I was walking back to Mel C when I decided to try another combination. 130-something. I'll try from 1-9.

But before I was subjected to any further failure and embarassment, in front of me, I see this tall and lanky dude with a familiar face and I was ecstatic! Erich thanks a million I owe you lollies. :P

Erich called Alex and we three reunited again!

*dramatic music for a climactic ending*

No actually it's just starting.

If you guys saw a couple of international university students talking really loud to each other outside the State library, it could've been us. I won't include dialogues but it's something along the lines of

"You're like a grandmother with Dementia who lost her family!"

I successfully killed another 10 minutes or so denying.

Then, we walked down Swanston street laughing away. "Oy so what do we do now?"

Decided against bowling because it wouldn't be fun with only me and Alex playing. It's always a problem to decide what to do in the city without involving money. I should get lost more often. It's like Hide and seek with a bigger space to hide.

PS Gerard Butler I love you!

I am so behind time. Recommended by Zeming, and so I watched it this afternoon after getting back from Gippy. Thanks Zem for lending me your hard drive when I forgotten mine.

I absolutely loved it. It's such a beautiful story depicting the pains of dealing with loss, something I'm personally not very good at. Used up hell a lot of tissues and this time it's not because of my flu. :( I'm such a sucker for movies like this.

On top of that, Jeffrey Dean Morgan (again and again, why did he die in Grey's) and Gerard Butler's singing-Irish monicker. Hmm Dishy. Yes. You heard me squealing.

Feeling the love.

If it's not forever, if it's just _________.

Fill in the blanks.

Down with (swine) flu.


Nothing much about the swine. But this is like the nth time I got a flu in Aussie. And all these have one thing in common. It takes forever to heal. Knowing the potency of the flu bug over here, plus the mad hot-cold-hot-cold-hot weather. I am thinking, this flu will last up till my exams come.

Speaking of which, I am not looking forward to the pile that is being thrown at my face now.

Com and creativity Journal, 1200, not touched.
FTV, 2500 words.
JRN, 1800 words.
FTV visual test (I haven't studied shit)
(Many of which, you noticed I don't have any COM essays to do because I finished my last in the previous wave. woo wooo.)

Can you imagine, all these squeezed in 2 weeks of Oct.


Sick. And Grumpy. And. Sick. :(

*Emo at Fed Square with a beer.
