The Uncertainty of Summer

I guess this post is quite overdue. I am still kinda waiting for my dear friend to send me some of those pics. But anyways, I should post something about my arrival in Malaysia.

Everytime I stepfoot into KLIA, I always have that feeling something is going to change this time. Every single time I come back, there is always something that changes. Friends getting lesser, the places that we used to hang out has become a total stranger, the familiar faces somehow does not seem as familiar as before. I guess time has changed, for the better I suppose. But somehow, there is always those familiar face that no matter how unfamiliar they may seem, it always seem the same internally. These are the kind of people which I would give anything in the world to hold on to.

So it would seem that this summer would be a total different one than the previous ones. Me not having a job and not knowing what I will be doing next semester and all. It is totally uncertain. Not like back in the days where I would enjoy till my heart contents and knowing that I would be going back to school sooner than I think when I go back to Melbourne the next semester. I guess this would be different. I wonder if its for the better or for worse. I really have no idea right now.

If you were wondering, I did managed to secure myself a job in Melbourne. Unfortunately, I turned it down for something more worth while doing. I do not know if I made the right choice but I guess every decision we make do lead to something we never expect. Like I said, creating my own fate. So that's that, we should see how it goes.

Have a great day peoeple, whether in the same time zone or not. We are under the same sky.

I Wonder

Sometimes you look out to the world and wonder, is it just me or is it the world that is being unfair. I sometimes wonder if it is actually both. However, I do believe in creating your own fate. My choice of extending my stay in Melbourne has created an unexpected turn which I have prayed hard for.

I really do hope that it will stay with me a little longer. I only want something "this" much once in a very blue moon.

Have a pleasant day people.

8th November 2007

People say it's Deepavali, but I say it's my 1st year anniversary with the boyfriend. However, we decided to keep it low. No celebrations, no presents and no surprises. Don't ask me why, it's kinda just because we did not wanted an extravaganza celebration. But I guess the boyfriend did not wanted the day to pass without at least some red atmosphere which represents you know what. So his sneaky mind decided to surprise me with this.

So that's that.

After every big successful battle, there is always the time where you bid farewell to your fellow team mates and friends goodbye. Going home to the loved ones where we once left to find a path where it will lead us in the future. Although it has been long waited to leave this place, but we know we will miss it nevertheless. I know I will.

This is how we said goodbye! With the company of laughter and joy and good Thai Green Curry and later on Gelato.

Have a pleasant day fellow readers. For those who are leaving soon, have a safe flight and see you in one year.

Vintage & Contemporary

Being in the modern metropolitan world, it is sometimes hard to keep up with the couture that was once originated from the vintage and conventional world of fashion. I would say that Coco Chanel has her fair share of the invention. And also because of her, the modern world could never keep up even with the contemporary fashion.

At present, people like me and Kim would like to look back and mend those pieces that were once left out a very long time ago even before we were born. We decided to go for some contemporary shopping which was inspired by the conventional world of fashion, our newly amusement, Vintage.

And to Brunswick Street we went. A little Spanish Churros complemented the afternoon under the scorching sun.

Have a nice week ahead my fellow readers! Do visit hunters and gatherers if you can! Muackz!

Once upon a time...

there were 3 senoritas who was captured by the evil vibe of examination. They waited and waited for the time where they would be released from the evil evil vibe. Everyday, they prayed hard for that moment.

One day, while they were slaving their way through the work they were slaved to do, an angel of life came to their rescue and released them from the evil vibe and they were FREE!!!

The first thing that came to their mind was to head back to the place where they used to loved so much and do the thing that they love most. SHOPPING! And there they went, their hearts just melted when they saw the pretty dresses and beautiful cosmetics which they have not seen for a long time.

The rest of the story you can imagine yourself...

And they lived Happily Ever After Holidays!!!

2nd Year has Come and Passed

It's all gone now. The 2nd year of my degree. Which means I only left with 1 year of stuyding and then I'm on my own? Sounds great right?

Don't get me wrong. I do feel very happy. Exams are over, holidays are here for good, not technically but it does feels like it. But it means study life is going to be over soon. In fact, I am already feeling it. Remember again, I have to find job next year for my co-op year? Well, that still did not go so well if you are still wondering. Wish me luck for that! Oh, which brings me, I will not be going back to Malaysia on the 9th of November but on the 16th. I am so sorry Maine dear, I can't be there on the day of your birthday. I hope you understand, even with the slightest chance and the slightest hope, I really will like to fight for it.

Coming back to my point. When people tell me that uni was the best times of theirs lives. I tend to give them the sneer and say, " are you kidding? Who likes to go to Uni? It's so depressing!" But now, I finally understand what they are talking about. When you are a student, you are a student. The only responsibility you have is to study and nothing else. Your parents pays for your tuition, most of your expenses are taken care of because all they want you to do is to concentrate on your ultimate responsibility instead of going out to find work. Life has never been that great, hasn't it?

When you start working, it's all up to you. Earning those cash and rationing it properly so that you don't go broke at the end of the month and so that you can pay those enormous amount of rent. Not only that, you have to go to work from 8am - 5pm everyday without any off day unless of a public holidays. You get that as a student too, but you get public holidays AND off days as well! You can miss classes and do whatever you like and won't get expelled. Unlike working, you'll definitely get fired! Nuff said.

Well, bottom line is, do live life to the fullest when you have the chance as a student. Things do not come easy I know this, but it won't last as well. I suggest we all should make full use of it. I know I will.

So long everyone, till the next.

Have a pleasant day!
