终于乖乖回来一下了

呵呵呵呵歹势歹势
不回来这边晃一晃还真的不知道
谢涵宁小姐还真像是从九月多就
人间蒸发石沉大海化成骨灰烟消魂散的一样
难怪亲爱的Roomie Wanna小姐最近时不时就在催我更新了

话说回来Wanna真的比我勤劳很多
她的网志一直都跟得上她的脚步

哪像我
上了曼谷
去了Orientation Banquet
爱上了搜狗拼音
所以又开始用中文打博客了)
庆了Dr. Chew生日
庆了自己的生日
游了Ban Sang的海滩
(顺便换了肤色)
迷上了DOTA
(这要感谢Keziah小姐还有某个姓翁的)
Alumni Homecoming Weekend唱了北京欢迎你
庆了Esther生日
(对了好像连Esther小姐都还没介绍)
烫了头发
看了Wanna恩宁Kitty选了Miss Loy Krathong
一句话也没打
再怎么不想也要自认懒得无药可救了

不过
交代了一下后
本小姐又要继续石沉大海了
真的很不好意思!

学期结束后
我会乖乖补上照片的……我……

(连话还没说完就已经掉入大海了)

theOtherMermaid


After reading Wanna's Chinese version of "The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield, I came up with one short story of my own-the result of an inspiration from Vida Winter, a famous author in the novel. Vida Winter wrote a series of twisted fairy tales called "13 tales of Change and Desperation" in the book, and somehow after reading it I decided to try writing a story with a similiar theme.

The story's in Chinese though, I'll try to translate it into English over the weekends. To understand the story better, you may need to read a summary of the original version of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermaid". Comments please, dear readers!

另一条美人鱼的故事

从前从前,有一个男孩和一个女孩。这个故事里的女孩并不穷困,只是她拥有的财富只限于她的世界。而这个男孩非常富裕,直至他船化成的碎片沉到了几万里的盐水里也会比船原有的价值高。他们的相遇,噢不是相遇-因为只有女孩看到了男孩眼中的微笑-发生在一片海上,和海上的一艘船上。她看见了他的双脚,也看见了自己布满鳞片的尾巴。

巫婆不是仙女教母,所以女孩用了最珍贵的宝贝来换她最深切的憧憬。而这个憧憬的魔力,只持续到她发现失去的宝贝才能让憧憬实现的那一刻。她的姐妹当然清楚这一点;不是她们把巫婆的洞穴指给她的吗?而她们心里也在嘀咕:没有必要剪断自己漂亮的头发来换取一把妹妹应该不会用的刀,光秃秃的头可无法吸引那以前最爱看着妹妹的漂亮小伙子呢。

所以女孩在男孩新婚那夜在甲板上来回徘徊。她的手中拿着的不是可以让她找回尾巴的短刀,而是男孩教她削苹果皮的小刀,也是正插在她心坎深处正滴血的刀。男孩就只在一扇与他第一次被拥在女孩怀里的意识一样脆弱的门后。

女孩爱男孩,但化成泡沫的可怕结局足以让最深的爱悄悄蜕变,直到化成像美人鱼尾巴上那一片片的鳞,紧紧地贴在她每走一步就刺入她心的脚板上磨不掉。女孩就在甲板上缓缓地踩着这些鳞片徘徊,紧抓着小刀地来回徘徊……

SWTx100

Ever heard excuses which sounds worse than "The dog ate my homework."?

I wonder whether other students have encountered the same bizarre reason for lack of textbooks as this is what Ms.Julie Cook told us what the person in charge told her when we asked her today why MC Mart is still out of Approaches to Reading texbooks:

"The driver who was supposed to send the books had an accident and died."

She said she's not sure whether this is the truth while our jaws hit the ground in disbelief. I really can't tell whether this means the driver died on the books and damaged it all with his spilled guts or his entire van exploded into a zillion teeny weeny pieces, for these are the only connections a dead driver seems to have with lost textbooks.

The next thing you know will be someone telling us that our College Grammar textbooks are on the same delivery van.

TheBareNecessityofCollegeLife

Ask any college student and he or she will tell you one of the most important bare necessities of college life is your room-a place of your very own to crash, hibernate, DOTA your head off, find out about the college Romeo's latest girl, bitch about that nasty girl who turned up her nose at you, swear in secret and curse, I mean study your lessons =)

In my case though, it's more like Our room with the existence of sweet Wanna, which by the way is still lounging(or hopping?) with kangaroos in Melbourne.

Lets take a peek into our chamber of guilty delights, shall we?

Place: Room 408 of Women's Residence 1
Location: Muak Lek Campus of APIU (or the former Mission College)
Residents: C.H.Ning ( Malaysian Chinese) and Wanna S.C. (Thai Taiwanese)

Snapshots:

1st view: Ning's side

Ning's corner is a place where food and books live in perfect
harmony, with the exception of various gadgets and widgets like
the all-too-important boiler and other bits and pieces.
Bedsheets were absent at the moment for
they're being packed for the wash.

The camwhorer and her shelves.

The colony of textbooks and dictionaries.

The multitude of daily bread.

Hammy, from Kitty for hammering on thy weary shoulders.

2nd view: Wanna's side

The forbidden land of Wanna's territory (until she's back).
Says Ning's vampire self which appears in holidays,
"How I rejoice in the existence of the curtain, which shields
my eyes from the horrible sunlight, and the fridge, which holds me
store of bloodbags, when the time comes for me to be a creature of night..."

The forest from our window and balcony.

Lotsa trees.

Yep, more trees.


So here's the place I'll be staying for the next 4 months =)
Wanna mentioned about redecorating the room when she's back. If this chamber ceases to look this way after she's back, with Wanna's permission I'll show you guys how it looks again.

AndHereSheIs

Now where was I?
Answer: The waiting room of Platform 16.
What was I doing?
Answer: Waiting for MH782 to bring me back to Thailand.

My trip back to MC, no Asian Pacific International University (APIU? sounds a little palia lol) this time on 18 August was on my own, and not by Air Asia. I'm taking MAS instead. These are the pictures I took out of boredom.

Waiting room of Platform 16, for the MH782 flight to Bangkok.

My passport, boarding pass and departure card.
10 minutes after I took this picture the last call came for us to board the plane.

If I'm not mistaken, this is a plane from Qatar Airways.


Camwhoring's always good for passing your time.

The plane landed at Suvarnabhumi Airport at 4.25pm. I went for Enning who landed 10 minutes earlier and Greg picked both of us up at the entrance. It's really nice to have him around since we both have a lot of luggage; mine weighed 21.5kg (the 13kg suitcase fell on my toe the night before and for the moment I thought my toe has became pulp) while Enning had brought her guitar along, though hers were only 13kg.

We hired a taxi and reached Victoria Monument at 6 something. On the way Greg told us that this was the 4th time he travelled on the highway. The 1st trip was to pick up Kitty, the 2nd to send her to Bangkok where she'd be staying for the night with her roomate Om, the 3rd trip for us and the 4th trip to send us back to Bangkok. LOL He haven't even get a bite for the whole day, so we let him to go for his meal and to look for his shoes while we went back to college (university?) ourselves.
We're thankful that there was a driver willing to make the 2 hours+ trip, as there were only 4 on the van for Muak Lek. I slept like a pig and woke up in a blur state wondering whether the driver had changed his mind and decided to drive home instead when he turned into a more familiar lane and we soon came across the MISSION COLLEGE signboard which had been taken down and replaced with the Princess' potrait (?!?!) by 8.45pm.
The real trouble starts there though for I have to lug my 13.5 kg suitcase up 4 floors to reach room 408! Lol I will definitely lose weight by climbing those beastly stairs everyday. The rest of the day(s) were spent in unpacking and reorganizing my room which had been empty for 3 weeks. I'll show you my room tomorrow.

ThanksAgain

Goodness! I almost forgot my list of thanks for yesterday and the day before. So here's a total of 10 things to be thankful for(skip this part if you're sick of hearing me say thanks):
  1. I'd done certifying my documents for registration!
  2. The clerks of SJK(C) Yoke Nam have agreed to help me out for my practical work
    certification which might come in handy in the next few years.With that it'll be easier
    for me to apply for scholarships, especially those offered by universities in The States.
  3. I managed to have a decent conversation with dear's parents at last!Both of them!
  4. Baby Hang's baby brother was born safely on 11 August 2008. We've been quite worried about him last week,as the doctors found that his umbilicial cord had somehow winded around his neck. But all's well ends well=)
  5. Yi Heng's a great help yesterday. He ran back and forth, retrieving all the things I just
    happened to leave behind without complaining!Keep this up, bro.
  6. Dear, thanks for giving me a good time in The Curve yesterday =)
  7. And dear? Thanks again for making a few extra rounds just to help me out.
  8. Yow Han handed me the first CD of Aunt's previous talk last night. He promised to
    give pass me the other 2 on Saturday. Thanks Pastor! You are a good friend.
  9. Greg, thanks for looking after my fish and cleaning its tank haha.
  10. The last goes to Mom and Dad, for being so tolerant and nice with me these 3 months. I love you both!
Done. Now I'm seriously considering moving these lists to somewhere else.

Btw, here's a very meaningful site of gratitude which I found, which is a community of grateful people.

On the other hand, if you just happen to not feel a mite thankful for anything and everything in your life happens to be all shitty and all sucks for the moment, you belong here

So you see, there is a place for eveything in this world. Have fun clicking around peeps =)

MemoirsOfTheSteamboatGirl

I don't know how it started, but seems like it's becoming our family's custom to eat steamboat before I left for Thailand. I remembered very well that the last time I came to this restaurant was last year's August, right before I left for my first semester in Asian Pacific International University, the former Mission College.

Maybe from now on my family will always have an annual steamboat dinner for me whenever I left for Thailand in August. It will definitely be the perfect final touch to my enlarge-thy-waistband-when-you-go-home project.

Anyway here are the pictures I promised:



The main character of all---MR. WOK.



My pretty and capable Mom behind the honourable MR WOK.



Here's my balding-yet-still-very-handome Dad.



The "You take, you take more pictures and I'll KILL you!" Bro.



The aircon-and-electric-wok-steamboat-people
of the restaurant.



MR WOK full of our food.



The survivors of the food plate which were
still being eaten in the end.



Here's the map of the restaurant where we ate.
It's the Ho Ho Steamboat Restaurant in Sri Petaling.
Steamboat fanatics, it's definitely a MUST-GO .
(Boy I'm so hopelessly lame at making recommendations TT )

Feeling extremely sleepy now. Will write more tomorrow.

5 things to be thankful for today:

  2. Mom's sushi was heavenly.

By the way, this list writing thingy has somehow resurrected my blog too XD

MY BLOG LIVES! WOOHOO!
IT'S NOT DEAD YET MUAHAHAHA

只想甜死一个欠打的家伙

今天再次发现你的胸膛
依然是我最爱躺的地方
因为它厚实稳当
因为它有你的味道你的心跳
因为它提醒着我有这么一个爱我的人
愿意成为我的避风港

今天有好几次你都趁我不注意的时候把我抱紧
把头放在我的肩膀上
我很喜欢那种感觉

但我不想知道这些突然的小动作
是不是和我就快回泰国的是有关

我根本都不想去想那天的到来
我根本都不想去想我们要再次分开的那天的到来

Here'sAnother

Watched The Mummy 3 with dear today. It's been some time since we went to the movies together; I didn't realise until then how much I missed going to the movies with him.

Will be going back to Thailand on August 18 but am trying not to think so much about it now.

Here's my list today:
  1. Mom's real nice; she didn't mention anything though I can't get the things she need
    and didn't help her out this afternoon.
  2. Bro.'s being obedient today; he completed the exercises I gave him though
    he grumbles a little.
  3. Dad's sweet too; he called back from office just to tell me that my adapter's being sucky.
  4. Connection's pretty good tonight.
  5. I've got More chocolate!

By the way,

Happy Birthday Cucumber!

I'm starting to like writing out this list of thanks. Aunt promised that my life will be different after I do this for 2 weeks!

I did Google what she said though, and I found an article in Reader's Digest to support her claim.

This article is entitled 'The New Science of Being Thankful' and here's something interesting on a study carried out by Robert Emmons, PhD, a psychology professor at the University of California and Michael McCullough, another psyc prof of the University of Miami. The two professors took three groups of volunteers and assign all three of them to focus on different areas: things that irritate them, things that leave them feel thankful and also things which are just everyday life stuff. Here's what they found:

The results: The people who focused on gratitude were just flat-out happier. They saw their lives in favorable terms. They reported fewer negative physical symptoms such as headaches or colds, and they were active in ways that were good for them. They spent almost an hour and a half more per week exercising than those who focused on hassles. Plain and simple, those who were grateful had a higher quality of life.

Here's another part of the article which lists out the benefits of being grateful:

Felt better about their lives.
Were more optimistic.
Were more energetic.
Were more enthusiastic.
Were more determined.
Were more interested.
Were more joyful.
Exercised more.
Had fewer illnesses.
Got more sleep.
Were more likely to have helped someone else.

You can find the rest of the article here:

Well I don't know about you, but I'm sure that I'm trying this on myself now. So far I really don't see any harm in trying this out, so guys, do consider doing what I'm doing now =)

杂记

来个心情杂记吧。

a) 不是普通的烦

事件一
这几天后面那条街的阿伯
突然感染了艺术气氛歌神上身
下午唱了一堆难听的福建歌不要紧
晚上还发表一大堆感言
十一点多了还在开个人演唱演讲会
要不是汽油暴涨
本小姐会不顾生命危险拿着L License开车去砸场。

事件二
问题是汽油暴涨至MYR2.70/liter
我不但不能开车去砸场
最近还在考虑要不要买辆脚车以后出门就用这个踏完整个马来西亚半岛算了。

事件三
家里的小依婕
我该怎麽帮你记得汽车巴士飞机火车这些字长什么样?

事件四
我肥了。
连跑步都开始可以感觉到肥肉在随着步伐起舞
正式升格为又矮又胖的矮瓜河童共同体了呵呵呵。

b) 不是普通的紧张

明天第三次踏入考车场。
呵呵呵会不会又来kandas呢
我跟我爸说好了
这次考不过就不理了
反正回泰国没车给我开
只是
我很心痛我学车花的钱。

c) 不是普通的心平气和

上个星期和宝贝去看Prince Caspian的时候
宝贝牵着我的手的时候
以前的他牵着现在的她的手与我擦身而过。

他没看见我,我也没打招呼。
我们爱过吗?
这个问题没有必要再去想了。

d) 不是普通的不服输

宝贝说,我不可能可以学会Secret
因为我手太小。
我说,废话。

现在在猛练Secret
已经快练完一页了。

哼。看到最后谁要请谁吃饭。

e) 不是普通的快乐

事件一
妈包粽子了
很好吃很好吃。

事件二
跟杰莹惠琦还有嘉雯三个傻婆会面了
谢谢你们陪我一起三八。
接下来还有莹璇美云……我等你们 =)

写了很杂的一片东东。
好困
我要睡了。

June 11, 2008

杀我不死

不好意思
我真的非常不喜欢那一种用成绩和外表
来衡量别人的人
就算他们是长辈也不例外。

不过
越是瞧不起我的人
我就越是想给他们好看。

这种人
杀我不死

Daddy'sCinderella



Cinderella-Steven Curtis Chapman

She spins and she sways
To whatever song plays
Without a care in the world
And I'm sitting here wearing
The weight of the world on my shoulders

It's been a long day
And there's still work to do
She's pulling at me
Saying "Dad, I need you

There's a ball at the castle
And I've been invited
And I need to practice my dancing
Oh, please, Daddy, please?"

So I danced with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
'Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh, I danced with Cinderella
I don't wanna miss even one song
'Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she'll be gone...

She says he's a nice guy and I'd be impressed
She wants to know if I approve of her dress
She says, "Dad, the prom is just one week away
And I need to practice my dancing
Oh, please, Daddy, please?"

So I danced with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
'Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh, I danced with Cinderella
I don't want to miss even one song
'Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she'll be gone

She will be gone

Well, she came home today with a ring on her hand
Just glowing and telling us all they had planned
She says, "Dad, the wedding's still six months away
But I need to practice my dancing
Oh, please, Daddy, please?"

So I danced with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
'Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh, I danced with Cinderella
I don't want to miss even one song
'Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she'll be gone

*
有点伤感的一首歌。

原以为是一个他守护她她的王子不是他的故事。
后来才发现
那捉紧时间与灰姑娘共舞的是她的爹地。

记得到泰国念书前
爸妈的一个朋友曾告诉我说,
我爸其实比我妈还舍不得放手让我出国

回来后我爸还是和以前一样
什么事都想帮我安排帮我处理。
自己已经不止一次在两国的机场来回跑了
回到家要从吉隆坡搭车到柔佛的时候
他还是硬要到巴士上检查我有没有在车上才肯回家。

不知道这是不是代表老爸和灰姑娘的爹地一样
即使一早就知道女儿终究会离开自己
却还是不想错过任何一个可以照顾女儿的机会
不想错过任何一支可以在十二点以前和女儿一起跳的舞。

亲爱的老爸
让我早几天跟你说声父亲节快乐吧。

Confession



Sometimes I need you a little.
Sometimes I need you a lot.

And most times,
I can do pretty well on my own.

But I never said that I didn't need you.
Because deep down inside, I know I do.

Of You, and I



You
have no idea of how much
how very very much
I
long to be in your arms
to feel your warmth against mine
to hear you heart beat against mine
to bury my head and hide in this refuge you offer
now.

You have no idea at all.
