Staring outside my house for 10 minutes
It was 5.10pm, when I started to stare outside my large sliding door. Everything seemed calm as the rain just stopped about half hour ago. I had just finished watching "Chuck" the series on my computer and it was a happy ending, so I was feeling a little happy from that movie.
My house faces an end of a shopping lot. From the little room that I had to look into, I could only see the back door of the shop lot, which is actually a small shoe warehouse. It is painted in green and had many shoe boxes lying around the back corridor. There was a car parked in front of my house and it was black in color. It was a Wira car with a shiny silver rim on the tire. He must have just sent his car for washing as the rims looked really shiny. I could tell it was my neighbor’s car because my dad usually curses the owner of this car for parking in front of my house.
A few car passed by as I sat there looking outside. I could tell it was really windy because the red bougainvilleas potted plants located opposite my house, just in front of the shoe warehouse, were moving away. It was a great day to be outside, just enjoying the wind, I thought to myself. A few minutes passed and I heard my neighbors talking. They were speaking in Hokkien and from the little I could understand, I could tell what they were planning to do. The little neighbor girl wanted to go out to the park to play, but, her grandfather told her that she could only go for a while as he had to come back soon to bathe.
After a while, I saw her passing by my tunneled vision with a Skippy rope. Her grandfather followed her with a tiny toddler in his arms. They walked passed my house. There I was again, staring at the shiny black car and the potted bougainvillea plants opposite my house. A few cars passed by and my dog, Timtam boy seemed to be alerted. There could only be one reason why he's up and standing in front of my sliding door. My dad was reaching home. I saw the grandfather and his two grandchildren walk pass my house back to their home. That was fast, I thought. The wind chimes hung in front of my house started to make noise, and my dad's van was then in front of my house.

That was my assignment for tomorrow. I was supposed to stare at a window(mine was er, sliding door) for 10 minutes and write what i saw afterwards for 10 minutes.
My feature writing class is so awesome! lols, we get to write about really cute things(points at the above)! lols. I'm not really good at writing or playing around with words. This class should really help me with my writing. and also bring down my SE, because we have to read out a loud our assignments and er, mine isn't exactly that awesome compared to my classmates! lols!
This past few weeks has been really awesome!:) I mean, I spent money like SHIT, but who cares, I did it in style! wtf.
I actually (In no particular order):
FINALLY cleaned my room
Went to Singapore, again with Elaine. Had a blast!
Went to watch a play in the Actor's studio, got to check out Stephanie in action and her "performing arts" people! hahahah
Baked a totally failed cake
Went to Malacca with Steph, It was AWESOME.
Watched MPYO - Malaysian Philharmonic Youth Orchestra in a VIP Suite (you know, the one where you sit in a box in an auditorium, with VIP treatment) Louanne, got some VIP tickets. It was really AMAZING! Owh, i also got to hug out with the "music industry people" lol!
Saw Tun Dr. Mahathir and his family at MPYO. Walked pass him and also his entourage of policemen. lols.
Applied for GE internship, but totally sucked ass at the interview and failed the interview. Boohoo. Yes, I got the rejection email already. I guess i'm not GE material.
Went for an Isetan Pre-sale (which was madness, but i bought a Black Patent Peep-toe shoe)

Owh, Giordano warehouse sale.
Found the wonderful recipe for MANGO SMOOTHIE!
I also went shopping. ALOT. Now i wanna sell my stuff back to some people worthy of them.
Said goodbye to Sok Ling. Not that it was a great feeling, but it was nice being her friend for the past semester, we had great fun together. I'm going to miss her much! Saying bye to her was hard. Ok, so i never told her this, but i teared when i got to the car.
I need to get back to "student" mode and start some of my assignment and studying. For psych, we have this new anti plagiarism thing to do now, so annoying! No more last minute assignments. Owh wells!
Can't believe 3 years ago, i stepped into this placed called HELP Uni College! Summer 2008 marks my 4th year in Uni. I'm 22 and I'm going to finish my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and Communications by the end of this year with a GPA of 3.6. Clap hands now, you think easy to get 3.6? huh huh huh???
You know, this semester, I'm planning to be a loner. wtf. I go to class, sit by myself and go back home. HAHAHAHA okay, so i miss my friends who all left me, but I will make new friends!!! lols!
Got this Meme from Simple Cheryl while blog hopping.....hope to get the hamperrrrrr. yums!

1) If you could choose one, which would you rather be: desirable, popular or confident? Why?
Confident!:) This is becauseeeeeeee, when you're confident, you are desirable and popular what, unless people like popular kids who are not confident, but then again, you need to be confident to be popular, no? Ok, rambling adey.
2) I usually feel desirable when I have a I usually feel desirable in 2 conditions: One after showering. and another after being dolled up to go out:) The after shower feeling is awesome (REALLY), especially when (hint, hint, veet advertisement) I am all clean-SHAVEN! leg hairs are gross, really, but sometimes i get super malas to shave/wax it is just so ugly. Feels like I have fur. So after mandi already, get dolled up, feel desirable again!:)
3) Which of these is your biggest no-no (in case you bump into your dream guy): messy hair, bad wardrobe combo, or unshaven legs (you’re wearing shorts!!)?
It is between bad wardrobe and unshaven legs! HAHA. bad wardrobe is just bad la, huh? Imagine wearing like super house clothes, like an OLD top with Pink Panther and it looks like it has been worn since you were 13! Unshaven legs on the other hand, not that visible lah, unless the guy actually looks down at your legs so closely... But then again, if dream guy doesn't like me anymore cos my legs are unshaven and I'm in my favourite Pink Panther house clothes, then he wouldn't be my dream guy anymore would he? Inner beauty baby!
4) When it comes to hair removal which is more important:Convenience? Fast? Silky smooth after-feel?
Silky smooth after-feel

6) What do you like most about Veet?
It burns the hair with the chemical, so gross, but awesome to watch the ruined leg hair!
7) What makes people notice you?
Wah, hard question man, I think it would be my whole appearance as a whole. How my hair is tied, what clothes i wear, how i bring myself etc.
The usual TAG: Xue Zhen Lea Denise Elaine Amelia Tan Anyone la!:)
Now, I want my Veet HAMPER!! I wanna try the Wax strips :D :D
Okay, so this purse story is real, and happened a long time ago!
How many of you have been cheated when you shopped online?
Like for example, they gave you the wrong size, or the seller has gone missing after you’ve made the payment, or even worst, they tell you it is “brand new” but when you get it, you know by the looks of it, that the purse(for example) has been used and it even has the used perfume smell of the old user (eiuwww)!!!
Well, the purse incident, was true, I experienced it when I bought something online from a second hand seller. She clearly stated there it is “Brand New and Never worn”. I asked her again, if the purse is brand new, she said yes and i trusted her! I even asked her if there was any defects and is it worn out or old looking. She said, “it is never worn and super new”. I made a mistake by not asking her for more pictures and such to actually see the product nicely! So i paid her.
I miss blogging! GAH Emmagem is taking up too much of my time. Anyways, once i figure out what domain name i want, im closing this blog and moving to wordpress:)
