Chop Chop

Scribbled by Teddie Debbie at 23:45 1 scream(s)
Fuh! Stealing some time to update my state of affairs here. But I think most have already read it from Cai Yi's blog which is much updated than mine here


Anyway, I still have to update something for minorities like Ieki (I haven't forget about you my dear ) whom doesn't read Cai Yi's blog.

First of all, it's about our slimming plan. We've been put on weight since the 4-months holiday and we can hardly fit into our formal clothes already so we decided to do exercise throughout the semester. And guess what? Since we're here for almost one month, we've been jogging for like... 2 days.
Let me explain. It's all because of the assignments and FYP. Plus my sport shoes are spoilt. How can you jog in a pair of spoilt sport shoes? You'll sprain your ankles easily, is it not? Uh, nevermind.

The other day, I watched a video shared in Facebook which is about a guy imitating singers singing with exaggerated expression here and here. I don't know why I shared to ahdi, but after she watched she laughed as if she'll burst her stomach and I laughed so hard with her as well. And that's when I started to have sore throat. Since then, ahdi's funny bone will be triggered whenever I do like this and she'll laugh very hard till she can't breathe LOL.

Last Friday I went to a Malay coursemate's open house. I thought they're so free to cook and invited us all... But it's totally opposite from what I thought when I reached their house.
Food I cannot eat at all because of my sore throat. And we have FYP consultation on the coming Monday wtf. Still I gave face and eat a little of each snacks (and worsen my sore throat ahaha) :p

The next day I went to town with Cai Yi, Ahdi and Ahma to settle our business - FYP, Cai Yi's adapter, and also sport shoes! 4 of us bought the same sport shoes eh~♥ At first we wanted to come back at 2pm but since we've started an UNO game in the shop we sat and had drinks and we were having so much fun so we decided to delay and come back at 4pm. Cai Yi won thrice in the game! Ahma and me won once only. Pity ahdi didn't win any game hahaha .

After a few days playing around, here comes the big day. FYP Phase 1 Feasibility Study - Consultation Day. I had trouble looking for the right outfit coz I think I left my red formal shirt at home and I just don't think other shirts are nice enough for the presentation :(
Maybe I should look for formal shirts one day. For my FYP final presentation. And I think I should cut my fringe which is already so long it doesn't look like fringe anymore. And my brows - people keep saying I should shape it again. Gosh I have to invest so much money in my FYP. (OMG I sounds so much like Becky)

Okie come back! So my group was the 7th group and we're so nervous coz every group that went in the discussion room took quite some time. But woots we took around 10 minutes to present and consult our project! I take that it's okie for the moment... Groups in the afternoon slot weren't so lucky coz they have the new Prof as their consultant. And I felt a lil disappointed with one of the lecturer.

Maybe we should find a day to pray in the temple.

10 Myths About Introverts

Scribbled by Teddie Debbie at 17:21 0 scream(s)
Source: http://www.carlkingcreative.com/10-myths-about-introverts

I always knew I'm an introvert. I have most of the points shown in this article!

Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.
I agree with this other than the "hate small talk" part. I don't hate small talk, if it's with my close friends :p I don't talk much with new friends.

Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.
See how Cai Yi get along with me so fast? Because she talked to me a lot. Hehe. And I do mean A LOT. :p

Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.
This I have no comment...

Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.
This is so true! I really can count my close friends on one hand. ^^"

Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.
Totally agree with this!!! "Take in data and experiences very quickly". I'm a fast learner, am I not? :p

Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.
Mm. I hate to do things alone.

Myth #7 – Introverts are weird.
Introverts are often individualists. They don’t follow the crowd. They’d prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don’t make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.
I don't know. You think I'm weird?

Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.
Lol. I seldom pay attention to what is going on around me ahaha...

Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun.
Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.
This I'm not so agree with. I do want to travel around as well.

Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
A world without Introverts would be a world with few scientists, musicians, artists, poets, filmmakers, doctors, mathematicians, writers, and philosophers. That being said, there are still plenty of techniques an Extrovert can learn in order to interact with Introverts. (Yes, I reversed these two terms on purpose to show you how biased our society is.) Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ.
Does this suggest that the more Introvert a person is, the higher IQ he/she has? But anyway I don't think I can fix myself and become an Extrovert either.

Transition

Scribbled by Teddie Debbie at 11:43 0 scream(s)
I know I might've been overreacting... Freaked out, maybe, like what I've said in previous post. Already stressed up even the new semester hasn't really start yet (Felt sorry for my FYP partner for my current predicament). Cursing a bit too much till mami warned me to mind my language ahaha Oops sorry.

Just bear with it till I'm really settle down. Get used to the busy route of study life first 'kay.

=======================================================================
Oh just a small update - The main door in my hostel unit is spoilt! Actually the door knob was not functioning well already but yesterday it just shut! My roommie was locked outside of the house when I was cooking for dinner. She had to call the mechanic to break the door knob. And guess what? The mechanic said we have to replace the door knob with our own money! O.o No way I'm not gonna do that. It's not our fault. (If we do have fault, the only fault is we didn't report it earlier) Anyway we're not gonna lock the door so it doesn't make any difference whether we have a door knob or not, isn't it? (More at Cai Yi's post)

Freaked Out

Scribbled by Teddie Debbie at 00:09 0 scream(s)
Okie. Calm down first.

One good news is, my streamyx line is fixed yesterday. The problem is, our hostel blacked-out thrice last night, just when I'm so excited that I can online.

Nevermind. That's not the main point.

We've had 3 classes so far, and 2 talks regarding our industrial training and final year project (FYP). Almost all our assignments involved programming! And the industrial training... OMG OMG OMG I think I can die already!

Now I name myself the Freaked Out Freaky Becky, inspired by ahdi coz I am freaked out, and freaky rhymes with freaked out, while Becky is the main character in shopaholic series, Rebecca Bloomwood, whom always is indecisive. Gosh shopaholic series is nice!

Back back back. Okie. Other than studies, I've gained weight!!!!! Oh fml. I don't want to elaborate much on this matter. Although it's a truth that every girl will definitely say themselves have gain weight, but I really am fat. Oh my. Have to spend time to exercise somemore.

Damn damn damn.

Updates

Scribbled by Teddie Debbie at 11:20 2 scream(s)
1. It's been four days we're back in this small island. I can detect hostel internet from my room at 3rd floor! But more and more people coming back so it's getting worse. Streamyx contractor will only come within one week. (Or maybe after one week, I heard from a friend who came back earlier than me that his line is not fixed yet, which I hope not going to happen on me)

2. Yesterday was mid-autumn festival and no one asked us for celebration. Cai Yi brought her mooncake and we had it while watching movies. So pathetic.

3. Class started. Just attending for the introductory class makes me feel this sem is gonna be a super tough one.

4. Every beginning of sem also have to spend a lot for necessities. Dammit.

Aih wish all the best for us la.

Troublemaker

Scribbled by Teddie Debbie at 00:08 1 scream(s)
Just now Cai Yi told me she knew who's her roommate already. Then we were so excited we might get to stay together if her roommate is willing to switch with me!

At first she asked me to get help from friends who're already in campus to check who's my roommate, but I thought just leave it as it goes so I didn't. (Ended up I did coz my curiosity beats me)

And I really thankful for her to take the trouble to find out who's her roommate and even called her up to tell her our plan! Although her roommate is busy at the moment and will contact her soon when she's free but she didn't sound rejective, so at least it's a good sign.

Then my sis online and chatted with me coz she knew I'm emo. She advised me the cons of staying together when we're doing projects together.

I'm so indecisive now coz we were so excited on it and I've troubled Cai Yi to find out who's her roommate and discussed about it, yet on the other side I think what my sis said is right.

What if we had an argument about our project and we weren't happy with each other that time? Then we still have to go back to the same room and let the bad environment continue to surround us?

Oh phark. I felt like I'm a troublemaker. First I told Cai Yi I'm flexible for whatever it works, then she took all the trouble to reach her roommate, and now I tell her I'm indecisive.

Anyone can give me advices?

Flustered, No? Cheers!

Scribbled by Teddie Debbie at 18:36 0 scream(s)
On 27th August we're able to check where are we going to stay. And disappointed enough, I got triple room, which means I have to stay with another 2 strangers since I couldn't find who're my roommate. Ahdi and Cai Yi are lucky enough to get double room, which means they're sharing the room with only one roommate. Then I have got so many shared stuffs with Cai Yi!

Our subject registration is opened on the 1st and 2nd this month. All of them can register except for me! Okie maybe not me alone, but students without PTPTN cannot register due to the unpaid fees. But why so unfair! PTPTN holders haven't clear the fees also what! I was just unhappy with their management so I refuse to make payment immediately.

I was very emo that my time here is lesser and lesser. Not only I have to leave my home sweet home and my beloved ones, I have to deal with all these matters somemore.

Yesternight after a talk with my friend, I already accept the truth of not staying with someone I'm familiar with, and to settle my registration after semester starts.

Who knows, this morning after I woke up, I learnt a news that we will not be staying in triple room anymore! Erm actually I also don't know how it works I'm so confused, so don't ask me how will it be. We'll only know after we've settle down there.

Then, another university mate told me I can register already. *eyes widened more* YIPPIE!

Now I am relieved.

Cheers :)

My Last Sunday in KL

Scribbled by Teddie Debbie at 23:53 0 scream(s)
Yesternight my auntie, 三姨's family came to our house. They came back together with papa and mami who went to Genting Highlands. So in order to make space for them, we had to clean up our room (finally). It was some kind of sweep-the-rubbish-under-the-carpet act, we just stuffed all our clothes into the wardrobe and closed it up. Honestly if it's opened now I think it will 'explode' and the clothes will all fall out.

Auntie said it's because we're grudging on things we don't need anymore. Yea me think so too. I still think I might wear the clothes some day, or will be able to match some tops/bottoms when I found the matching ones, or will make effort to slim down to wear the clothes I'm not fit into, or I love the piece of clothes too much I didn't want to give it away, or ... ...

Anyway we managed to make space for them to stay overnight. This morning we went to have breakfast together and then went to Sungei Wang to shop. Our intention were just to accompany my auntie and my cousin to shop, but ended up I bought more clothes than they did. =p

They went back to Kuantan after they had dinner with us at around 6pm. We then went to South City to buy groceries. Then I started to feel emo, coz I was getting myself some necessities to use in Labuan. The shopping I did this afternoon didn't cheer me up. I haven't buy the refill ink for my printers yet. And I haven't pay my school fees to register for my course subjects. *Phark* I hate the school system. And they start the registration when their officers are on leave!

Then after I reached home, switched on my laptop to online, the feeling is getting more and more overwhelming. I felt wanted to cry and felt as if there's nothing that can cheer me up. Cai Yi, Kuan and erjie comforted me, but I'm not feeling any better. :S Lily suggested to watch movie with me tomorrow, but mami said NO, asking why must I go watch movie instead of do something at home, some house chores or pack my luggage. WHY!!!!! (And this means I'm not meeting you, Ieki. Probably not anymore till I leave, if I'm still not allowed to go out with my sis. Sorry...)

It's so hard to acknowledge that this will be my LAST school holiday/sem break. Then we're going to step into the working world. We won't be able to hang out anytime as we like already, coz we're bound to our work. Why is the time flying so fast!

I love my holiday, although I spent it on working most of the time. At least I travelled to some other places (even though not interesting places like where Cai Yi went), I did watch some movies with my sis, spent time with friends and family, and even shopping with my relatives too.

Gosh this is so hard I felt I'm gonna cry if I don't stop here.

Okie I'm so emo now.
Emo Debbie.

I Failed in Family Tree

Scribbled by Teddie Debbie at 12:44 0 scream(s)
Chinese has got different appellation to address our relatives, instead of the easy uncle and auntie in English. That's why most of the time I find it hard to address my grandparents siblings coz my parents won't ask us to address them as simple as uncle/auntie.

Yesternight, one of my friend talked about her auntie (舅母), whom is her mother's brother's wife and how her aunty get along with her grandmother.

(Conversation moderated)
Friend: My auntie has changed. She's my 舅母. *Story goes with her grandma*
Me: Maternal or paternal grandma???
Friend: 舅母 definitely is at 外婆 side la!

Ipoh & Penang Trip (28th - 31st August 2011)

Scribbled by Teddie Debbie at 12:54 0 scream(s)
Yeap! After my program in Port Dickson, we're going to visit my maternal grandparents~ ♥ So excited! They've been so cute all the time ^^ At first mami asked us to pack 5 sets of clothes including pyjamas coz she expected us to buy in Penang. Luckily Lily and I brought extra coz we didn't buy any clothes there!

This post is going to be a very long one too coz I'm going to squeeze the 4 days trip in a small space :p

28th August 2011 (Sunday)
We left at around afternoon (I forgot what time) and reached Bidor at around 4pm. Without Ivy around, Lily is the one who kept taking photos. (Geez I felt dizzy taking photos in car okie... @@) Papa stopped at Mee Wah Restaurant to have a quick lunch before we head to Gerik, where my grandparents live.

See my mami. Still pretty aye? ^^
She's excited to go back to her birthplace too~


Camwhoring coz we're too bored in the 4-hours journey

Nail color given by Jann. I like it coz it looked like candies!
Looking for orange, yellow and apple green to complete it too

When we reached, gonggong and popo were so excited to see us! And we're also excited to see them! It's been quite a long time since I visited them. Their 'garage' had been renovated to part of the house and is now the toilet and bathroom!

It was around 6pm when we reached. After we had our dinner, we basically had nothing to do :S (Gosh I wished I brought my laptop along) My grandpa went to sleep at 8.30pm! So early! Luckily my grandma chat with us (actually was to mami) and I fall asleep while they're still chatting.

See they pack all the durians into plastic bags and kept in freezer!
Once open then can smell the aroma of durians already haha...

29th August 2011 (Monday)
I was still staying in the cosy bed when the adults were awake and asking us to go breakfast. :p Popo bought a big plate of pork (烧肉) because she heard my brother loves to eat that and wantan mee for us as breakfast. ♥ Papa blamed us for waking up late and we only managed to go for a short Penang tour.

(I gave gonggong and popo RM100 each as pocket money =] I'm a filial granddaughter, aren't I?)

Found this snail-like worm on the dining wall.
EWWW...

Mami didn't allow me to bring this pair of shoes initially, so I smuggled the shoes into the car bunk

Of course, saying about Penang, here's a place I've been wanted to go - Toy Museum! It took me some time to locate the place although I've been to Penang not long ago, yet it was Lily who spot the museum. ^^"

The entrance fee for Malaysian is RM10 per person, so papa and mami let us in while they wait us outside. It's all toys after all, they're not interested in it :p

Chess set!


Too many photos taken in the Toy Museum I can't put it all up otherwise this post is going to be thiiiiiiiiiis long... (Spread arms to the max) Lol. They planned to have laksa as lunch near Kek Lok Si but too bad the place was so crowded we couldn't even find a parking space so ended up we went to a mall near Gurney Plaza and had GCB as lunch. fml

We went round and round and we got bored so I forced my brother to play 'fighting' with me. Look at his expression, he made it like he can dodge all my punches easily!

We found this car in the car park. So pariotic...
Lol

Papa let us choose whether to go back by toll or ferry and we chose the latter. ^_^

It's already around 9pm when we reached granny's house. Gonggong somemore fought with his sleepiness to wait us~ Aww. Of course he went to sleep immediately after we're back We were still not sleepy yet coz we just had dinner so we decided to play 'fighting' again...

This is what happened when I'm not connected to Internet

Lol I have to mention once again - it's NOT real fighting! I'm not that ganas okie! xD Plus my brother can overpower me anytime coz he practised wushu.

My favourite collection of photos

30th August 2011 (Tuesday)
I woke up very early this morning coz I was hoping they'll bring me out for breakfast, but who knows everyone woke up very late at around 11am. ==" Gonggong and popo went out to collect more vege. (All the vege we ate are planted by themselves eh!) Gonggong somemore purposely looked for fresh durians for us! Aww really sayang them a lot lah ♥♥♥ I guess papa was also struggling to survive without Internet coz he couldn't stop himself from asking mami whether we can go home this day or not Anyway, gonggong said the Long Puat Thor temple has so many believers now they're expanding! So we went there to get the 'holy water' to wash the car plat hoping the number will appear as first prize in lottery LOL...

Park or temple I'm also not sure

The map to guide you where to start praying first

The expanding part.
There's only a tree trunk which was said will give fortune by showing numbers for lottery. All you have to do is wet the trunk and rub with your fingers, and look very hard on the trunk to get your number.

Omitofu 7337 better open as first prize in all lotteries papa and mami buy!

After that, we went to the pekan to buy some spices coz mami wanted to cook curry the next morning!

Popo said she asked a gonggong's sister to have dinner together. Mami called her 曼姑. Fuh I also cannot recognise her, the relation is just as complicated as a spider web... The feeling of having dinner with a big family is great! (Just don't ask me to clean all the dishes thankkiu.)

My auntie 二姨 came back this night! Too bad they missed the dinner, otherwise it'll be much merrier. My siblings played Chor Dai Dee with my cousins so I went to bed early this night.

31st August 2011 (Wednesday)
I woke up early again. Gonggong purposely look for durians again when they went out to collect fresh vege for mami to bring home. How lovely~ This day we had curry as our breakfast! Yum yum ^^

Papa still struggling hard without Internet I guess (me too) so he hastened us to pack faster and go home earlier. Popo stuffed RM300 to Lily and ran away before she could say no and return to her. So crafty!

Way to go home!
