You're Worth It!

ok.. i can't run away from my blog.. here's something to think about..

by Rocky Balboa:
"Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.

You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done.

Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that!"

If you're given a choice, which whould u choose?

To be a big fish in a small pond or a small fish in a big pond?

I'd like to be a small (medium can? don't want to be too visible) fish in a big pond. Since I can't really stay put at a place, I'd like to have a big pond so that i have more places to to go. Yes being small means u can easily be eaten by the bigger folks but isn't life like that? It's all about survival..

Kris from my Toastmaster Club said he'd like to be a big fish in a big pond.. but hey, ure only give 2 choices laa.. Mane aci..

* screwed up my exam just now..

speak out!

went to speak out first time in the Toastmasters' meeting here for Table Topic (a.k.a impromptu speech). Topic was what do u feel on watching movies in your tongue language but with subtitles? It's simply annoying! The feedback I got was to slower my speech pace.. yeaaa i know this, i talk a lot.. and fast. hehee. anyway, will be presenting my 9th speech in 2 week! I need to find a topic, fast.

one a note, i have my digital signal processing (DSP) exam tomorrow. Wish me the best :)

* 2 months to go but the pain is getting worst every single day.. nk balik.....

i Am Me

when i read my blog when i was an Undergrad.. i can see how simple life was.. how happy i was just simply being there.. it's impossible to have that life back. as u grow older, u have to hold a lot more of responsibilities.. once stepping into the real world, u are expected to be mature enough to learn and deal with your life. regardless of how prepared u were, u just had to face it head on.

i am not who i was 3 years ago.. there will always be childish-and-carefree me inside screaming to come out but i'm conscious enough to keep it back. but i think, i'm releasing it bit by bit while being with him. i'm no longer searching for myself as i AM me when i'm with him..

time to be happy and foolish again! Muaahhhh!

*side note: esok kelas stat blk!! huwaaaa~

Terima Kasih..

Dear readers..

I hv a lab report due on Wednesday & an exam next Thursday but I hvn't start studying or doing anything yet. The only thing I hv accomplished during my whole mid-semester break is another 1 assignment and of course, spending $$$. Hmmmm... I think I'll be in intensive mode tomorrow and on Sunday...


Apart from that.. a verse of the song Munajat Cinta by the Rock feat. Ahmad Dhani..

Tuhan kirimkanlah aku,
kekasih yang, baik hati,
yang mencintai aku,
apa adanya..

I'm really grateful that I've finally found someone, alhamdulillah. He has everything I look for in a partner, nothing less i can expect. No words can describe what I felt for him. But meeting him at this junction of life, I had to face a lot of challenges and decison making. I guess since time is cruel to us and the fact that me being away, we appreciate more what we have now.

Thank u, dear..

there are
people in ur life whom u wish u never met...
that person will leave a mark,
whether it's a dot or a circle of a big significance...
but no matter what,
know that things happened for a reason...
so whatever it was, what u need to do
is to put ur feet forward and move on...
there is no use to keep holding back...

i no longer think of the past..
as i have found my strength..
for my present and my future..

Blue Mountain - April 13th, '09

A trip which I almost forgotten to go.. Went for apple picking.. I've always hate red apples, so i normally look for green Granny Smith apples but for come reason there are none at this farm. Surprisingly though, the Pink Lady apples here are crunchy & sweet!

Next is the place I've been waiting for.. c.h.o.c.o.l.a.t.e hee~ *grinning from ear to ear*

I bought just a handful of chocs. They're damn expensive but really give a yummy taste to the buds. Would u pay AUD18 for 6 pieces of chocs like this?? That's y i only bought 6. I ate one already before taking the pics. LOL!

Final stop was Echo Point & 3 sisters at the Park. Unfortunately, we didn't get in time there so the park was closed right when we reached there. Blame it on the bus which stopped an hour for toilet stop!! Sib baik i've been here before. xde ahh terkilan sgt..
it's only 5pm but it looked like it's already 7pm kn?.. it's freaking cold as well coz it's raining the whole day.. here i can see the 'asap' (lupe plak namenyer) when i talked.. huhuu
the whole trip was nice. I left home at 8.30am and reached back at 9.30pm. But I got to meet new people and get to know 2 really talkative kids which asked me a bunch of weird questions and kept asking me to play this ' dead man spirit' kind of game.
Ish budak2 ni..

which Gen are u?

baby boomers - if ure born btwn yr 1946 to 1964
gen X - if ure born after the baby boom, 1965 to 1979
gen Y - if ure born later in the year 1980 to 1995

hmm so both of my parents are baby boomers and all of my siblings and me are of gen Y.. and him is gen X.. i guess he is the filler of the gen gap that we have in the family then! heee boley wak?


aihhh.. he can easily blew my heart away..
wweeee it's floating in the air....

Australia School of Business SouthCoast Trip Apr11th

After the departure at 8 (vs 7.15am as stated in the itinerary) & bfast at Shellharbour Mackers, we finally arrived at the Nat'l Park..

Initially pumped up to see the waterfall, but sadly dissapointed when we arrived at the point. Am I expecting too much after seeing a lot of nicer waterfall in Malaysia??

We then moved to the next place - Blow Hole Point, Kiama. Here, the view is awesome. The bay was pretty calm and we had our lunch there.
The Hole. I couldn't get a snap at the water when it reaches the hole. U should be able to see the water splashing up when it hit the rocks, along with the blowing sound..
Pretty steep here at the cliff.. But nice spot for lunch break. Angin sepoi-sepoi bahasa. heee~
The Seven Miles Beach that we're supposed to stay for an hour but ended up only 30mins. Thanx to somebody who had her special lunch (dduhhh and costed everybody waiting for xtra 1/2 hr for her?!?)
Final stop - Jasper Valley Winery

That's all! Owh yeah, slept til noon today. hahaha!

Confession to the World..

Love & care for the one you love
in every single day of your life.
You may think what you did is nothing,
but to someone else,
it may mean a world...

I Love U..

the First month..

I have survived my 1st month here.. what hv i done? lemme see.. classes, exams, assignments, labs, new frens, harsh wind, rain, bbqs..

how did i cope?
on studies = some stuff were pretty easy to learn, but some are very tough.. i think my brain is stil rusty ler..
on getting around = ok, thanx to 131500. i think i'll be bus expert by the end of 2 yrs here. haha!
on weather = getting colder each day, raining almost everyday.. mr sunshine, plz come out..
on love-life = stil hvn't get around the fact that we're thousand miles apart. huwaaa!! awak...... isk isk~

in short, i can survive the days but not the nights..

What I've Spent Most here..

Yeaa Sneakers!!

Skechers Biker Black

Puma Sport - sleek design ha?
Heee giler kasut dah ni~

City of Sydney - again.. LOL!

Dinner at the city was Sushi!! finally i can eat sushi here.. Of course b4 going in, we asked if there were any alcohol involved and yess, we're lucky!

Our main mission to the city was to buy groceries.. I was drooled over these chocolates..

Apart from the groceries.. I also bought... heee~ see post above..

Centennial Park

A treasure hunt was held by PPMS at Centennial Park on Saturday.. Sad to say but the event sucked. Big time. The event was fulled of flaws- Comm emailed was sent w/o the direction of the meeting place (we ended up lost in the park & walking all around the park), so called "techincal difficulties" caused the hunt to start at 12 instead of 11 (it's cold & windy ok. imagine if we really came at 10am like the email requested???), a lot of the clues were flying all over the place coz of the wind (tampal la elok2 sket) & finally, how can u said to us who was in the hunt, "sorry, ayam dh abis tggl sosej jek"??? We freakin' pay for it man!!

OK, paying is not the big deal since it's merely 2 bucks but all these seriously shows how bad the mgmt team was.. M'sians g memaner pn tetap ngn attitude M'sians.. aihhh..Lily pond
Rose Garden

Duck Pond

Of course we didn't win, so after eating few sossages, we're out to the city..

A day spent..

I spent my time waiting on Thursday.. Turned out that our project discussion was canceled last minute, so I was able to go for Statistic's Lab instead. But I need to wait for my fren first.. It was raining earlier so I just sat behind the wall at Quadrangle..
after the sun comes out i moved to the Quad Lawn.. just people watching..
THE stairs over to Central.. 7 or 8 flights up..
Class finished at 12.. Went to the lab at 4pm.. My wait was for 4 hours... *sigh*
huhuu~ had my so-called "tantrum" today (more like sulking..).. for some reason, every single drop of stress and feeling of missing him that have been piling up since couple of weeks ago just crashed down and.. i snapped at him. sorry dear..

whatever it was, thanx for simply being there..
~hugs and kisses~
