This Kiss (6)


I miss his juicy lips.

The tenderness of his kiss just blows my mind away.

The fact that i’m gonna get more of it in 21 more days, excites me!


Random. I know


Something Pretty (2)


I haven’t been sharing music in this blog anymore huh?

Well, today the weather in JB is pretty gloomy. It’s raining. :]

And this song played on my playlist and it’s beautiful!

It’s by Patrick Park called Something Pretty.



Here I am, where I’ve been
I’ve walked a hundred miles in tobacco skin,
And my clothes are worn & gritty.
And I know ugliness,
Now show me something pretty.
I was a dumb punk kid with nothing to lose
And too much weight for walking shoes.
I could have died from being boring.
As for loneliness,
She greets me every morning.
At the most I’m a glare,
I’m the hopeless son who’s hardly there.
I’m the open sign that’s always busted.
I’m the friend you need, but can’t be trusted.
At the most I’m a glare,

Avoid Swine (4)


Received a text from mummy yesterday morning about Swine is infecting The America. In another word, she’s got some agenda behind it. Haha…

But it’s not gonna change my mind.

Anyway, Swine Flu is crazy! Those people around infected area, please please take precautions and read up more on the articles on Swine Flu.


Here’s a tips on 13 ways to avoid Swine Flu i found from Owning Pink:


1. Wash your hands all the time! Before meal, after meal, before you go out, after you come back, before you study, after you study, before you cook, after you cook, before u dig your nose, after you dig your nose. Whatever it is, just wash before and after in whatever you do.


2. Give your immune system a boost by taking Echinacea. My favorite is Esberitox from Integrative Therapeutics.


3. Eat immune boosting foods, and steer clear of sugar. Here are five that can help you.


Loaded with Vitamin C, citrus fruits are a yummy, easy way to support your immune system. Grab a glass of OJ, or make some lemonade. Even better, mix lots of lemons into clean water with stevia (a natural sweetener) and cayenne pepper. Not only is it a zingy tasty treat filled with Vitamin C, it also alkalinizes your body, which helps it fight infection.


Red chili peppers (cayenne)
Cayenne pepper has long been appreciated for its medicinal properties and can help your body during states of emergency. So chili it up for good health!


Filled with immune-boosting mojo, garlic has been used to treat everything from the common cold to the Plague. So load up on garlic and give your body a fighting chance.


Bursting with beta-carotene, carrots give your body a leg up when you’re fighting infection. Drink a few carrot juices to get enough in your body. Sweet potatoes and spinach also contain lots of beta carotene, so eat up.


Fish like salmon, mackeral, and tuna are filled with omega-3 fats, which support white blood cells in fighting infection. Sushi anyone?


4. Sleep well!  Sleep is underrated. When you’re well rested, your body fights infection more effectively.


5. Give up alcohol and caffeine(i find this one HARD for me to do!!) for a while. Staying sober and decaffeinated helps your body mount immune responses.


6. Guzzle green juice instead. If you have a juicer stashed under your counter, now is the time to pull it out and load it with kale, celery, cucumber, swiss chard, lemon, spinach, ginger, garlic- whatever you’ve got around that can support your good health. Also, avoid processed foods and eat a whole foods diet.


7. Try not to drink after others, especially those who have recently traveled to Mexico.  And avoid sick people, if you can.


8. Hydrate. Drink, drink, drink pure clean water.


9. Try not to touch your nose, eyes, and mouth.


10. Take Vitamin C supplements.  If you take extra, it gets excreted in your urine, so it won’t hurt you to load up.


11. Supplement with probiotic bacteria, which alters the intestinal flora and helps your body resist infection.


12. Take Elderberry syrup: 1 tsp 3 times daily 


13. Please don’t go to Mexico this summer, or now! Not until Swine Flu is over.


Hope it’s not gonna be as serious as SARS, coz i am going to New Jersey soon and New York is just above New Jersey!

Monday Blues FREE (3)


For the first time, this semester, i woke up on Monday morning at 8am, feeling happy and a lil tired too.
No Monday Blues. :]

Then breakfast came into my mind. Hehe.. No more Butterscotch Bread that is so tasty that always gives me diarrhea.

What came into my mind was, hot and spicy Lontong Kering with Chicken Rendang! Yummy!

So i got outta bed and went downstairs to check out what’s for breakfast before i brush my teeth.

And i saw this!!

100_4733Lontong Kering!!

Might look yucky to you all, but it taste super nice. :]

Not the first time mummy bought what i wanted to eat in the morning, the last time it happened, she made me her famous Mee Siam when i was craving for it.

Before i had my breakfast, i did laundry and all.. feel like such a good girl. Haha.. Do house chores and everything. :]

Then in the afternoon, i was very very sleepy. I think it was because i didn’t have my coffee in the morning today. So after had almost 3 hours of sleep in the afternoon, i had my Nescafe Gold and i was pretty charged up!

Started to clean more of the house like non-stop! And started to prepare dinner.

Today i cooked,

Steamed Minced Pork with Salted Egg(my favorite)

100_4742 Chicken Wings! Don’t know what do i call this in English.

But it’s ‘mern kai yok’ in Cantonese. :] With lots of garlic!

Gotta add this in ‘Melanie’s Specialties’.


Pictures when mummy is home with the dogs!


Hmm.. What to cook for tomorrow?

Owh! And i really need to re-read my Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince. SHiok!

Home Sweet Home ♡ (6)


Greetings from Johor Bahru!

I am finally home. I am very very happy!

Anyway, my last day in college was cool, tho i wasn’t very clear of what i answered for Advertising Copy writing's paper.

“Want some Milk-Bone, dawg?”


We had a late surprise celebration for Ashreena after our exam ends on Friday! And it was my last day in college. What do you think huh? Skip it? No way man..

Quote of the day on friday,

“I thought Christine said, ‘Hi, I’m Ran’, when Christine said ‘Hi Amran’”

“EH! AMRAN” when Sandra saw Amran, the PTPTN admin infront of him

How can i not miss them?

It was so nice to hang out with all of them and i will definitely miss them alot. We bowled after lunch at Nando’s. :]

It was my first time bowling with my girlfriends, besides Justin and Julian.

I scored 98 only. My score will never reach 100, thanks to mummy’s curse and my whole body is aching now.
That’s why i didn’t update ever since i got home.

Plus, Friday night was super busy packing my things and Chew, Long, Elaine & Josh came over. The weather was so hot, so we all jumped into the pool to swim!

Body aching all over. Hehe..





I love them all..



I look like i got HUGE ass.


I got a feeling Sand don’t love me anymore. She refuse take pictures with me. :[

Anyway, JJ and Emo’s at my place to stay over for a week. So i will be dogs sitting!






Mummy went to Batu Pahat for some bowling tournament today, so i prepared dinner to celebrate her victory. :]







I must say, i love the feeling at home. Owh..

Jacq! Faster come back, let’s go lepak.

Xtine, Sand, Resh! Come JB! I wanna spend more time with you all..

23 more days to be in his arms again.. And i am still very much in love with him.

I Am Loser 46.5 (5)


I was at my aunt’s house, baby sitting again.

Then i saw the weighing scale. I am not a big fan of weighing scale. It’s not that i don’t like the fact that i am heavy, just that, my weight will be around the same.

  • 2004 – I was 59kg
  • 2005 – I was 57kg
  • 2006 – I was 52kg

I was around the same weight ever since. Sometimes 53kg, sometimes 52kg. It will never change.

Therefore i am always motivated to go on diet based on the firmness of my body, more towards the outlook of my body. Never really weigh myself.

I do muscles exercises, to firm up my body. Sometimes only la..

So when i was at my aunt’s place just now, i weigh myself since i haven’t really seen my weight for a very long time. And it shows, freaking 46.5kg!


I thought i didn’t see it clearly. So i asked my cousin to read it for me. IT’S 46.5KG!!


Should i be happy or not huh?

I mean, i am finally back to the weight that i was when i was in Form 3, but i still see fats around my body!

Is this an unhealthy weight? :[

I am worried.

I think it’s time for me to go back JB to put on some weight.

People might think i am some freaking-anorexia-girl! I am not. I am just eating a little unhealthy without being able to cook or eat freely. It sucks living with your landlord who is crazy.

It’s actually my fault for not taking care of my health.. I shall not let this happen again. I shall regain my weight back to 50kg. It hurts to see my weight dropped so drastically and i can’t do anything about it at the moment.

I must go back JB to eat!!!

Jason: See what Instant noodle can do to you?! Instant is bad…

McD In A Stressful Monday Night (8)


Studying Introduction to Films now.

Peng Ee’s car was broken in today. Her window is gone. Phone is gone.

Worst of all, yesterday was her birthday. :[

Jily isn’t here too. :[

I wish i’m back home, can be there with her, tho i knew she’s a strong strong person.

Just a random thoughts:

How i wish i have someone to study with me, during examination period?

How i wish that same person will accompany me out to buy snacks or perhaps go have McDonalds with me after being so stressed at studies?

Or maybe a walk with Oreo McFlurry?

But i can see it coming.. It’s only gonna be 1 sem without it. :[

By the way, i’m not really that stress.

Let Me Go Home (5)


I am suppose to study now but my heart isn’t here with Info Tech.


My heart..

  • is with Wankit.

    I can’t wait to go.. Mainly coz i can’t stand these few days pathetic weather. Crazily hot, I must say.  But to think about it, it’ll be summer when i’m going there, so NO DIFFERENCE!

    I just miss him alot and i wanna feel him again.

  • is at home

    I am so thrilled to go home after exam! I can’t wait to cook all the good food for my family. Honestly, i miss cooking alot. I miss eating JB food alot too, not to mention, Juivy’s cook.

    I also wanna spend more time in my room that i used to call my comfort zone, which is now occupied by my lil sister. :[
    Gonna chase her out when i am back. Haha…

  • is missing Popo Lulu and Jillian Jie Jie

    Suddenly only.. Don’t know why.

I am giving up on this semester. The information is crazy! I think it’s because i skipped 3 weeks of classes, not to mention 1 week of being 1 hour late for most of the classes except for Communication in Workplace.


Sometimes, even Zan’s lecture is mainly about himself, it’s easier to remember what he say in class, at least i know what to study for examination.

I know. No use crying over spilled milk.


My marks, definitely can pass, but not an A. :[


I really can’t study Infor Tech de. :[

Who Is The Half Blood Prince? (11)



Can’t wait to watch right? Movie release date has been confirmed by Warner Bros. head of distribution Dan Fellman, to be out in cinemas 2 days earlier, 15 of July 2009, because it gives the movie a head-start on the weekend during what's shaping up as a highly competitive summer season for Hollywood, which has major franchise films opening virtually every week. [source]

Oh my Gosh! Can’t wait right? I won’t be in Malaysia watching this incredible movie with my fellow HP fans. :[

But the boyfriend will be watching with me. What else can i ask for? I remembered my Daddy brought Jillian and i to CIty Square to watch Philosopher’s Stone, back then in 2001 and the cinema was closed coz of some Sultan passed away. So disappointed.

I have lots of memories with each and every movie trilogy of Harry Potter. Especially Prisoner of Azkaban! Spent my whole Form 3 reading almost 13 times of the book and got disappointed by the Alfonso Cuarón who ruin my PoA. :[

And Emma Watson slapped Tom Felton!

I am still a huge fan of Harry Potter, maybe not as that fanatic as PoA. I am planning to re-read Half-blood Prince as soon as my exam ends.

HBP just release a new trailer and this trailer really gives me goose bumps. So thrilled by the trailer! The memories of all of my imaginations when i first read HBP is all coming out!




Is it me or it is because Katie Bell isn’t the same one as we saw in the previous HPs?

Anyway, there’ll be lots of important events like, Harry got Hermione got pregnant, Draco decided to leave Hogwarts because to take care of his lunatic aunt, Ron joins the Death Eaters, Voldy sings his last song to Dumblydore when Snape kill Dumblydore. Woo! So many things!

I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess i’ll be watching Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in States too. Haha..

I am so happy today. Twitter is driving me crazy! I’m officially addicted to it.

Ok. Back to books!

Did i mentioned that my boyfriend has been very very sweet to me today? He said ‘I love you’ with that look, 3x! Makes me wanna cover up my face with the pillow and scream, he look so adorable.

For The Sake Of Redang (10)


For the sake of Redang, i decided to spend wisely this whole week in KL with these beautiful babies that taste salty and plastic-ish.

100_4668 I have no idea if it tastes nice or not.. Never try it before. But i never like the taste of instant noodles, taste like plastic! Yuck!

Well, it’s only for a week and i’ll be cooking my delicious meal at home.. I can’t really cook here. The landlord is crazy! Never, ever stay with your landlord when it’s a old female, unmarried.

Nescafe Gold is such a great friend. :]

Keeping me awake whenever i am sleepy. Always makes my day and night, day.

Been studying the whole morning, while Twittering and YouTube-ing.

I haven’t been on YouTube for so long and i just found out about the YouTube Orchestra Carnegie Hall competition. I am so impressed by the auditions, but not so with the speed of loading. Wonder who’s fault, YouTube or Streamyx.

It’s really nice to listen to orchestra. I love to listen to classical music and symphony kinda genre whenever i’m feeling stressed. That’s why i have a list full of classical music on my playlist. :]

Which reminds me of home…

When i was in Form 6(very stressful year for me), i always listen to Symphony Radio station when i’m picking my mummy up from work after tuition.. I listen to it early in the morning when i drive to school, when the sky is still dark, all you see is lights passing you by very fast and feel the rhythm of the symphony.. So relaxing.

I’m still feeling bad for Sandra. She wanted to go back to Malacca this week but she stayed for me. She wanted to spend more time with me before i leave. :[

But i never show up this whole week. And she is ill.. Please give me some idea to sayang her..

I feel so bad.

Unbelievable Indescribable (16)


I’ve been skipping classes for like almost 3 weeks now.

Yesterday i decided to attend college to spend some time with my college mates.

So i woke up this morning, thinking of whether should i go to college.


In the bathroom, still thinking..


Was dressed nicely. Was thinking of taking great pictures with them. So i got all dressed up.



In the lift, still thinking..


Because i spent the whole afternoon packing my stuff. Oeh! Today my friend’s picking up my stuff back to JB for me. :] So i gotta pack everything by today.


100_4659 Finally all packed!


I only leave 1 week of clothes for me to survive here in PJ.


Then i slept quite late because i’ve got something to do. :[

That’s why very tired.


Then waited for the bus while talking to Wankit. He wants me to go to college.. But as the bus stops in front of me, i ended up at mamak having breakfast and now i’m blogging at home.


I am so horrible, i know.. Sandra is mad at me. :[

I’m so sorry Sand..


I got a feeling she’s gonna kill me the next time she sees me.


As for now, i wanna take a nap before i start studying again.


Here’s some random pictures i found in my phone.

The baby my aunt has been baby sitting.. Sometimes i look after her when my aunt is busy.

We call her, Little K.




I carry her until she sleeps.

Damn tiring. :S


Sunset view from my apartment’s corridor




Sorry Sand..
