coolest facebook comment of the year!!!!

"满纸荒唐言 ,


一把辛酸泪;


都云作者痴,


谁解其中味?"



简直就是独中生的心声。


本人是个骨子里流着中国文化热血的崇洋份子,非常矛盾的人,


热爱中华文化却对现代中国人不敢恭维,


崇洋却鄙视讲得一口流利英文却不屑自己文化的香蕉


当华人问我“为何你进独中,独中生英文酱烂


我只能说,


可悲,可悲至极,英文烂可以咬着石头练,可以抱着字典啃,


可是贤的文化精髓是不能恶补回来的,


他们是我们扎扎实实身体力行学来的,


是存在我们骨子里的一腔热血,


是你们,问这种无知问的人永远所不能体会的。。


可悲可耻可叹可怜可笑。


唉~讲得再热血沸腾也是废,身为在这个世界找不到明确定位的马来西亚华人,


有搞好英文,继承比中国人更中国的文化,才能闯出自己的一片天。







food for thought, yes?

my latest craving

at first i was going to whinge about group assignments here,
but on second thought it might be better to save my dear readers the eyesore~
words of wisdom: choose your group mates carefully :)

ok~ purely by chance i saw the food i wanted to try the most in the world~
i wanna eat it the way pregnant ladies get the craving for jackfruit or whatever~
weird food comes in all sizes and shapes
and i totally love this one:
you might think :' what's so special about pisang goreng???' even with ice cream added, there's still nothing that deserves my love right??








hahahaa~ here's where i prove you wrong~

do not, i repeat, do not judge a book by its cover~~~

in this case, do not judge a food by its outer layer~~~~


what's important is what's inside. ngek ngek~~~







THE SECRET, LIES IN THIS:









it's a deep-fried Mars Bar!!!!!


amayyyy-zinggggg~~~~~~

i really wanna try this...london london here i come...

中学


ta-da~ look at this hotel~~!!!

自从学校装修后, 个人觉得, 超像酒店的~

可是这不是今天的重点~

许家有一男三女:长子许斌梧, 长女许燕慈, 次女本美女, 幺女许燕恩~

老哥老姐还有我,都拥有幸福快乐的中学生涯~

重点是,
  1. 都住过宿(规律痛苦有遇过盯妈的人生, 虽然每次都偷跑出去哈哈
  2. 都进过管乐(规律快乐有音乐的人生,这段日子非笔墨可形容~)
哈哈, 其实这两样东西, 已经给了我太多太多的东西。 我这个粉肠, 懒得出汁。 

若没有当年宿舍最令人讨厌的‘自修时间’,我不会有我今天的成绩。

(哈哈,虽然我的成绩也没有太惊人,但我满意就好啦~)

若我当年没住宿舍, 我就无法学习与人相处之道,到今天还在乱乱得罪人。

若我当年没进兴华, 我一定逃课逃到不像样, 对自己毫无要求。

若我当年没有宿舍的‘规律人生’, 我应该不能毕业吧。

若我当年没有进管乐, 我就无法了解‘练习’的重要性,

讲到管乐团就一大堆东西可以讲。

成果是靠自己的啦,

台上十分钟,台下十年功啦,

忍一时风平浪静啦,

好的音乐是要‘听’的 (许多人只会solo,叫他听等于白讲)等等。。。。。。。。。。
(哈哈, 我懂以上名句大家都学过, 可是能经历的,不多~)

唉,回想起来,

谢谢你呀, 兴华。



其实故事的重点就是。。。

老妹没机会经历这个美丽的学校。。。

加油吧。。。



hmm

too bored, started reading everyone's blogs.
shinyi was comparing herself( a bored girl who hasn't changed) with her friends(who have gone on to college and started having a 'whole new' group of friends)

compare compare compare
why do we do these things?

someone told me that he doesn't like going for reunions or gatherings anymore because people tend to compare :
'what uni are you going to',
'how much are you earning',
'what country will you go to'

..show off...etc...

personally, i think that this is no big deal since my group of friends don't do that; we're too busy crapping around :P
i'm thankful for that~

even if they did, it's nothing....i prefer to think that they're 'sharing' rather than 'showing off'..

but...back to the topic...

i'm finally settling down with 'new friends' which i like, in a new environment,

but honestly,

there's no replacing those darling friends that've been through thick and thin ok???

shinyi don't think so much since it'll be my turn real soon to be INSANELY jealous of your life in UK, the life of cheap topshop, endless shopping, LV, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Burberry, Coach, fish 'n' chips, gorgeous breads, cheaper travel to Paris, Barcelona, Spain, Rome, Copenhagen, clubbing...........wooooooo~~~

i hope YOU'll remember me when you get there though~~~~ ^^

be thankful for what you have now, eat all the nasi lemak, lo mee, roti canai, durian puff, teh tarik that you can~ cause you're gonna miss it like hell when you get there~~~~

so, darling, don't be 'emo' (i know you said you're not :P)

i'll never eva forget any of my old friends~cause you guys are what made me who i am today~





let's berice-cream when that japanese gal gets backkkk!!!

Raindrops falling on my head :]

it's 4:23am, my darling roommate is sleeping soundly, i've been hacking away at my final project for 7 hours, and now, it's starting to rain.
Nothing bugs me more than being unable to sleep at night, especially a rainy, stormy night.
But now this is happening to me right now.
But whenever i get the appointment to snuggle early, it never rains, but became as humid as Malaysia could be??

my bed misses me..but now i still have this comm theory final project to kaotim..

later, bed ~
not now~



We're going to Malacca this thursday!!!! so excited!!!! hahaahaa~
this malacca plan was hatched spontaneously this monday when we're just discussing what to do for this sinchew final project.
It's originally a event by sin chew, entitled 'a present for Malaysia',
where you get an elderly person to share about his/her experience in a particular place in malaysia~
if you finish the 15-minute-video, you get to be published after an interview~

initially no one planned to do it since we're already tsunami-ed with assignments, projects, and whatnot...



then that cunning lecturer had the nerve to cancel our original MV making project and replace with the 'present to Malaysia' thingy...
don't get me wrong, i love my tanah air~
it's just...Cognitive Dissonance...I guess...

So, after minimal justification
(Cendol, Laksa, Durian Puff, Chicken Rice)
I achieved consonance~~~

Let's go ~~~~~

looking forward to this trip ^^~~
(we're going to ..*secret* video our project)

but before this trip i had a final project and another assignment to pass up before i get to Jonker Street and sink my teeth in Makanan Malaysia~
yeeeeeeeeeeeeha~

~rain, rain go away~

The wheels on the bus go round and round~

as i sit here chomping through my apple, i remembered an old chinese story...

This guy loves eating apples and plums, but one day,
a doctor told him:' did you know that an apple is good for your teeth but bad for your stomach?
On the other hand, did you know that the plum is bad for your teeth but good for your stomach?'

The the guy said :
' no worries~ i can just chew the apple and spit it out, i can also swallow the plum whole without chewing it~!'



==...

i had no idea what this story is supposed to mean.
maybe to illustrate the dumbness of some people i guess.

I don't care. Apples are NOT GOOD for my teeth because it makes my teeth ache.
Everytime i eat an apple my teeth bleed and you can see blood on the apple ~
i know~~ this is gross~but whatever...

Today is our field trip to WAO(women's aid organization)
we skipped class in honour of this trip~aaaaaaaaaaaaand we sat in the bus!!

i know sitting in the bus is no big deal, but man i totally love buses. It brings back a whole lot of memories...

i remember band tours to north malaysia, singapore, taiwan~singing band scores on the bus, getting dunkin' donuts from those R&R stations, waving to the other bus, making faces...

i remember class trips to penang and genting~ taking non-existent pictures with nokia 6100, chatting till the whole bus is quiet ~

i remember getting on the bus for band competitions~ the euphoria and excitement of winning, and the disappointment of losing ... not to mention those funerals or sports day that we had to march to, filling the bus with our sweat and heat....

i remember putting junk food and stuff on the net in front of you...passing pringles or pocky around...

i remember those annoying people that would take pictures of you sleeping..when you're at your ugliest.....i'm no sleeping beauty, i admit that....

i remember watching lame movies on the bus, some horror movies that don't have any beginnings or endings because they're pirated hahaa...

i remember seeing my seniors taking off their shoes and propping their colourful socks up for the world to see...

many meaningful conversations take place on buses~







i love buses.

A cultured son-in-law~

this video was for my assignment, and at the same time my lecturer wanted us to participate in the inti film-fest movie making competition..


it's a long story, but at the end i did it.


the theme was 'culture',


and it was up to us to interpret it 'whatever way we want'

(mr.kevin's exact words :] ),


so i had this lame idea lo..


its weird why english language has the same names for weird different things?

don't blame me for the lame ending ok???


anyhow, thanks a whole lot to my dear actors who did their best although i know asking them to wake up early on a precious weekend morning is a huge pain,



  1. especially for aeron who had to work late :(

  2. philip koh who wanted to meet his gf but had to give in to my stubborn wishes~

  3. fiona who had to hold her brother's hand like ...lol

  4. also, special thanks to tanshinyi who had the nicest home for me to film this~ (my lecturer actually said her favorite part is the house =..=)


i got 3rd prize..its no big deal since there were not that much entries to begin with~


but its fun nonetheless~~~~~


i know that the lines in this movie sound lame...cause i didn't write a script to begin with...they kept talking spontaneously.. not bad :)



ta~da~

when in doubt, go travel





gradually, without i realising it, i have developed an appetite for travel.

i have never paid much thought to it before,

but lately i have this HUGE urge to pack my bags, take the lcct bus(20 mins away frm inti), get an airasia ticket,





and LEAVE!!!







i travel when i want to escape something.



i travel when i feel stifled.




i travel when i got bored with the shopping malls in malaysia.



travelling has that weird effect on you, taking in fresh air and all that.


I WANT TO TRAVEL NOW!!



i have no idea why some people look at me like i'm crazy when i sez i wanna go travel alone.


why not?





c'mon :)



haha... but travelling alone can be lonely.


like last year i went to singapore for a short trip, i had to stop myself from talking to strangers about random stuff i see.

'look! funny coke ad.'


'look! crazy girl with fruits'



i am wayyy too talkative for my own goood.


ish...


but travel can bring good bargains too~


that's why i'm planning to go thailand or indonesia or taiwan~


retail therapy, that's what! ^v^


thailand has that chatuchak market thingy, but i hope bangkok has calmed down


indonesia i have no idea how to where to since its so BIG (jakarta?)

i dont speak indon either :(


taiwan is rather expensive, and there're some dear friends i would like to see, and someone else i don't wanna meet.



hahahaa, there's another saying i've thought of :


'it doesn't matter where you go as long as the company is great'



hmm, this was during our 2006 juala gula trip, where my form teacher forced us to go this place in the middle of nowhere for our last class trip instead of langkawi (duty-free, people!!)
xue wei and his million-dollar-smile

crazy me shouting

they're pretendin to be (nerds?)

i ate my angry words back, because, although it IS in the middle of nowhere, i had fun. :)

(smiling at those happy memories with my crazy classmates)


i digress...

actually, sometimes going for a walk alone by a beautiful lake on a breezy evening can be relaxing enough,

but i can't resist that feeling of jealousy when i saw those happy pictures of people going for trips on facebook . grr....


ok, harry, i'll bring you along~



ps: where to go? any suggestions??

McD

i don't understand many of the stupid things i do.

i wasted my heart for 6 years.

i lied to myself for so long.

i did so many mistakes.

i didn't pay attention.

i didn't know there was no bus service on weekends.

i preferred sitting alone at McD crying to my laptop.

i must seem crazy.

i can't help it.

my dissonance was too great.

although i had great friends who could celebrate my birthday at the last minute.

i can't shake off the feeling that i'm a total loser.

go away, loser.

McD hates you.
