15 more hours =D

till the moment I've been waiting for since the start of the school year! I'm ecstatic!

anyways, Verity posted this youtube link on facebook. It's a very very interesting way of telling ppl who OTs are and what we do. Lol. Watch!

Ahh I digressed. Too excited about 3.15pm tomorrow that I can't study. Hahah. I'm going to miss spending late nights at the abacus... weird, but true. Guess I should stop procrastinating and try and study now :)

:D I'll be a free woman the next time I post something :D

ps: Jem's snoring away next to me. He looks sooo comfortable sprawled across 2 chairs. I was gonna take a pic and post it up but my cam's at home and my phone died. Lol. So much for studying.

my 2 minutes break

I thought this was funny.. I caught one of the blue Curtin library staff guys (the geeky asian one) checking his facebook when he was doing his rounds. He just couldn't resist when he found a free computer. Lol.

I feel so lost without my phone and I get weird thoughts popping into my head like I might get assaulted or something and I wouldn't be able to call anyone...

I feel like I'm in Chinatown.. This guy and girl across the partition are talking so loudly and really really fast in viet/thai/canto... they all sound the same to me.

Awesomely brilliant idea!

I have a brilliant beyond brilliant idea that I shouldn't even be thinking about cos that means I won't be able to concentrate on anything else like my studies and that is really really bad considering my exams start in 36 1/2 hours but I can't help it cos it's just so brilliant that the imaginary lightbulb above my head keeps flicking on every few seconds and I so want to tell someone people about it but I know I shouldn't because then we won't stop talking about it, which will make things worse cos then I will be jumping up and down with excitement in my seat in the exam hall in anticipation of the minute I start 3 months of brain inactivity, which is also the moment I've been waiting for since the start of the year, just so I can share my brilliant beyond brilliant idea! EEKS!

Proof that I'm NOT a fob.

I was suppose to be getting another 10 hours of studying in today, but I digressed. This is why. LOL

Credits go to Stuff Asian People Like

Young Asians in America (Australia counts too) come in many forms. Below are the major categories. Most Asians fit into multiple groups. For example, Rice-boys can also be Fobs and many Tabs are Fobulous. The only groups that are never part of another group are the Twinkies and the Asian-Americans. Claim your Fobbiness! When you see your Asian friend, greet them with ‘Wassup Fob!'. And if your Asian friend says something ridiculous, say ‘Fob please!' Of course, when a non-Asian calls you a Fob, that is grounds for a fight. Ahahaha. The categories below are to be taken lightheartedly. Read, recognize and laugh.




- Besides your nationality, there is little to distinguish you from white people

- Your significant other is not Asian and never has been

What a way to start 2009

The timetable for next semester's units are out. This is how we planned for it to be.

I have to wake up for freakin 8am lectures/tutorials for 3 days! What a chore! I haven't done that since... 2 sems ago (or was it 1). It was ages ago that I can't even remember. Arghhh this sem's not even done and I'm already dreading the next. But I suppose one of it's perks is that we get 2 days off, that is if we register for the classes early before everyone fills up the good slots, leaving us stuck with friday classes (like this sem!). They lied :( They specifically said registration would open at 10am or something and so I believed them. I was still in Lala Land when YH called me up at 8.30am because all the slots we planned for were gone. I'm going to stock up on coffee and stay up all night this time.



Oh wait.. Coffee makes  me sleep better.... I'll figure something out.

Jess's Masquerade Party

Jess Yap celebrated her 24th last week with a Masquerade themed party. It was a very cosy celebration with lots of colourful get ups and a whole lot of bootyshaking. Think Yu Min might have dislocated his hips :P (See if you can spot which picture later. Lol)

It was so hard to find a mask to fit my asian panda eyes (If I catch anyone staring at my eyes the next time I'm talking to them, they'll suffer the consequences). Even with a very patient and all-too-kind driver, it just wasn't meant to be for me to find one. Hahah. I ended up borrowing one from Esther, who brought over my favourite waffle cookies thingy about 10 minutes ago
*eeks! jumps for joy*

I'll let the pictures do the talking. Enjoy :)

The clockworks in my head

1. It's the last week of uni and I'm still staring at my to-do list for Week 1 on my 'Bulletin Bored'. I realise I haven't completed a single week's worth of readings till now.

2. When will Kenny be out of the shower? I stink from cooking.

3. Should I even bother applying for the next round of Honours? My recent grades aren't exactly something to be proud of and the thought of having to write out an application on your goals and contribution to the research team just puts me off. I like the idea of graduating with Honours but... research? Ulgh.

4. Why are guys so dense? And why do they always use 'Well, I kinda maybe like you' instead of admitting it straight. So much less complicated don't you think? I seriously hope not all guys are wired that way.

5. I could really use a Gloria Jean's White Chocolate Mocha topped with whipped cream, caramel and sprinkled with chocolatey goodness right about now.

6. How do you write a CV??

7. That choreographer on stage last Sunday was hot.

8. Should I go for Errol Cock's lecture tomorrow? I'll feel bad for the old man if I don't go because an average of 15 people show up every week. But I get zilch from it when I go anyway. Tough choice...

9. I'm suppose to look for Ange's sweater... and her other... stuff.

10. I'm loving sister Chelle Tran's love heart up on 'Bulletin Bored'. It makes me feel loved.

11. It's Audrey's birthday! Happy Birthday Drey! We've been the best of friends since childhood. When we were little, we used to have regular sleepovers (me at hers, because I had boysss (and we girls say 'eew' to boys my brothers) in my house), shopping sprees (with the mum of course), little late night girly chats, clothes swap, dolling up, and all the things little girls do. She was like the sister my brothers never were. Even though we both kind of grew up apart since she moved to US, she's still my best friend and I love her to bits.

12. I need to clean my room...again. World War XXIV broke out at Room 3, 120 Leach Highway.

13. Drey and I should have a huge celebration to replace all the birthdays we've spent apart! Gahh, I really miss that girl.

14. Should I really bother with you? Cos it's taking up a lot of space in my mind and I really don't see how it's beneficial.

15. I should really memorise my speech for tomorrow! I almost forgot about it. Oh yea, meet Jas for lunch and finish off those splints.

16. Gosh, my splints are U-G-L-Y! For 2 marks each, I'll probably end up with a total of 1.5. Recap- Jon NG: Gosh, what's that ugly thing?! ... -.-"'

17. I really need to relight that fire for God and I really need to be equipped with the Word. I should've known how to answer that Jewish girl when she asked 'If God is Jesus and the Holy Spirit, and Jesus is God's son, how can he be all 3 at once?' ... All of us should've known how to answer that.

18. I miss my mummy dearest and daddy dearest.

19. I should shower now. If Flipper was alive and had a functional nose, he would say "You Schtink!" Sorry, Flipper.

20. Goodness, I'm treating words like 'functional' as layman terms now. Too much OT. Too much.

21. Ahh I did it again! I used 'layman'. I would never have used functional and layman in my daily use of words before I came into OT... I have to admit, the words ADL (Activities of Daily Living, for the uninitiated), crossed my mind when I was trying to explain the last sentence. I could really use that end of the year holidays now.

22. I found Ange's sweater... and her other... stuff.

23. Wow, I went this far and didn't think of Facebook once.. D-oh!

24. Suddenly, I really really miss you guys..
Carolllll- Quit watching your anime and go study girl. Can't believe you'll be back home even before i finish my paper. Haha. Thanks for making me feel a little part of home everytime I talk to you even though, in your blurness, I bet you wouldn't notice.

Mr. Ng- Thanks, again :) I hope you're ok. You know I'm here if you ever need to talk, right? I'm holding on to your 'make everyone cook' party (If you follow through with your take away plans, I'll personally kick you out! hahah). Oh yea, and I'm still not over you having a laksa party in my absence. Bahh

Sexyrena- Somehow, you know just the right time to lift up my spirit whenever I'm down. I know God's doing amazing things in your life and I'm still in awe at how much you've grown ever since you came to know Him. I'm very very proud of you, sexy :) hehe

Mama Papaya- I didn't even know you moved to UK and that you're my faithful reader! Lol. But yea, I wish you were in KL. So much easier to hang with you. I won't just crash at your place this time :P hahah. We should explore more redundant sites together like lol (which, apparently, isn't there anymore :S). All the best in UK, my red faced friend!

25. Time to do some work!

Monday, October 27, 2008

It's 3am and I can't sleep.. Maybe it's because I've slept for a total of 11 hours today.. well, technically yesterday. Or maybe it's because I've got a million things going on in my head which I can't seem to get rid of. 

Ahh whatever it is, I need sleep. I want to sleep..

On a side note...

Thank you for calling even though you're so far away just to make sure I was okay.. It means a lot. I miss hanging with you. Can't wait to see you soon :)

Am I doing the right thing?
Did I do the right thing?
Am I a horrible person?
It's for the best, right?
What is wrong with me?
Why do I feel so small?
What is going on?

FGA 20th Anniversary Ball

Lol. How slow am I? This post is long overdue. But yea, I still wanted to put up 2 of my favourite pictures from the night. Awesome awesome night filled with really really really ridiculously good looking and glamorous people :)

Check out Facebook for more pictures :)

A word was released to me tonight at Elevate out of fear but out of obedience to God. And, somehow, although I didn't say it, I am grateful to the person for releasing it to me. Because, it wasn't just another word. It was the truth. I thought I was able to get away with it without anyone ever knowing. But that wasn't in accordance with God's plan. I guess He figured using one of his messengers to expose the real me would make me realise that it's about time i stop leading a double life.

Amazing Race Season 174

It's official! (in my book anyway)

If ever Amazing Race has a special 3 people perteam edition, the Lee family is going in!

I realised it can go either ways: 

a) We fight and scream (I cry, Aron sulks, Alan storms off) before killing each other on national tv 


b) We so kick butt and win first place and we split the money equally (mummy & daddy gets $300,000, I get $300,000, and they both get $200,000 each... because let's face it, they only need x amount of shoes in their life and I need xx).

I'd like to think we can manage the second one :) So get your pom poms ready and cheer us on at the finish line! 

Winning smiles!

They Pinky Promised!
